Bernie Sanders is about to close the gap in pledged delegates with 9 states left to vote, and perhaps because of that, Hillary Clinton of Wall Street is running scared and saying all sorts of things strange to her mouth.
Of the nine remaining states, Clinton might win New Jersey, but that’s far from certain. She will likely lose by 10 to 25 points in the other states, meaning the race for the Democratic nomination is about to seriously tighten. Sanders will likely win by 15 to 25 percent in Oregon and West Virginia, for example.
According to the Washington Post,
“Hillary Clinton has signaled that if she is elected president in November she would oppose a vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade accord during a lame-duck session of Congress, sharpening her differences with President Obama as he is ramping up his sales pitch on behalf of the deal.
Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner, responded in writing to a question on the lame-duck session from a coalition of Oregon labor unions and environmental groups by stating: “’I oppose the TPP agreement — and that means before and after the election.’”
Seven months ago, the Wall Street candidate said she was for the TPP, but after attacks from Bernie for her support of what she had called “The Gold Standard” of trade agreements, and which everybody else called “NAFTA on Steroids,” the Wall Street candidate altered her position, again.
If she makes it through the primary against Sanders, and given the remaining states, it’s going to be a squeaker, then Hillary will face the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, who has consistently been against the TPP for several years.
The pressure is mounting on Clinton, however, since most folks think she’s simply telling people what they want to hear, in order to undercut one of Sander’s most important campaign messages.
The TPP is a massive international income and political power redistribution scam designed to steal trillions of dollars from the 99 percent and redistribute that cash to Hillary’s rich corporate and Wall Street backers. President Obama and his henchmen like Wall Street Senator Ron Wyden, falsely market this scam as a trade agreement.
The scam will also gut our voting rights on the state and local levels and hand those rights to the rich and their corporations via secret tribunals, which will, of course, be kept secret from us.
These terms of the agreement were all well known when Wall Street’s darling endorsed the TPP as the “gold standard” of trade agreements.
Don’t buy her lie. Most Americans shouldn’t. Wall Street investment executives don’t buy it. According to the Post, “Business leaders, including U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas J. Donohue, have said they believe Clinton will come around and support the TPP if she wins the general election.”
In other words, her backers know she’s lying.
