Today, Main Street Democrats achieved a signal victory for the middle class by successfully filibustering President Obama’s demand for Fast Track Authority, which would have made it easy for congress to pass the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the largest income and political power redistribution scam in US history.

The TPP has been negotiated to raise pharmaceutical prices, offshore jobs, drive millions of Latin American immigrants into the USA illegally, eliminate your state and local voting rights on certain issues, increase already bloated income and wealth inequality, override Wall Street regulations, and lots more stuff that benefit the 1 percent at the expense of the 99 percent.

Fast track would have limited debate on the TPP, forbidden a senate filibuster on it, and not allow any amendments to the income redistribution scheme.

Led by Harry Reid, the Democrats tried to force the Republicans to accept four other bills in tandem with Fast Track Authority. These included provisions against child labor and currency manipulation.

Shockingly, even Wall Street Senator Ron Wyden stood with fellow Democrats in voting against Fast Track. Wyden had negotiated a deal with Wall Street Republican Senator Orrin Hatch that gave him some sort of self decided green light to vote against the 99 percent on Fast Track Authority on behalf of his Wall Street masters. His influence on Fast Track legislation was largely smoke and mirrors to fool the Democratic base. The base wasn’t fooled however.

Wyden is up for reelection in the state of Oregon next year, and grass root Democrats are organizing against him on an unprecedented level.

This defeat does not mark the end of the war against the middle class. So keep fighting against fast track and the TPP.

From GMO Free USA

NEW PEER-REVIEWED STUDY: Glufosinate Ammonium (GLA), the herbicide sprayed on Bayer’s herbicide tolerant Liberty Link GMO crops, has been found to induce austism-like symptoms in mice after their mothers were exposed to low doses – both pre and post-natal. The study raises fundamental concerns about the ability of current safety testing to assess risks of pesticide exposure during critical developmental periods. Another toxic herbicide in your GMO food.

A peer review study must pass rigorous standards. Multiple peer review studies show harmful impacts of GMOs to rats, amphibians, hams, cows and other animals. This includes such maladies as death by GMO, infertility, sterility, cancer, deformed genitals, and much, much more. The corporate propaganda machine known as the corporate media doesn’t want you to know about this stuff. They insist these studies are under dispute. They are under dispute, but only by GMO corporations. That’s something they won’t tell you.

In the meantime, the GMO corporate controlled USDA has decided not to take the health and safety of the American people into consideration when approving GMOs. The USDA “has approved for the 2015 growing season Roundup tolerant, Bt toxic pesticide producing GMO soy. The latest agrichemical innovation to grace your dinner plate without your knowledge or consent. Approved by the USDA in 2014, this new variety of soy joins two other crops which are also EPA registered pesticides that kill insects – Bt toxic insecticide producing corn & cotton (for cottonseed oil) are already an integral part of our food supply. HERBICIDE ON THE SOY. INSECTICIDE IN THE SOY. What a delightful gourmet treat!” From GMO Free USA

When an insect bites into a plant that is filled with the Bt toxin, its intestines begin to swell until it explodes. In one study, the uterus of 93 percent of women tested were loaded with the Bt toxin. Notice the corporate press is not reporting this. Instead, the corporate press is calling for a congressional vote to eliminate (suppress) your right to vote on state and county levels to label foods with GMO poisons in them.

Your government and the corporate press are corrupted to the core by big money. That’s why the USDA is approving this poison for your consumption, and that’s why they don’t want you to know about it.
