From Citizen’s Trade Campaign, January 9, 2014

Words in parenthesis are mine.

Earlier today, Representative Dave Camp (R-MI) and Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) introduced “Fast Track” legislation that would enable the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other free trade agreements (Income Redistribution Treaties) to be signed by the White House before the public gets to see them, and then rushed through Congress circumventing ordinary review, amendment and debate procedures.

Please ensure that the Camp-Baucus “Fast Track” bill is dead on arrival by writing your Members of Congress now.

Literally millions of people throughout the world have complained about the extreme secrecy of the TPP negotiations. They’ve argued that the public desrves the right to know what is being proposed in our names for a twelve-nation pact that will set rules governing an estimated 40% of the global economy — rules that not only dictate tariff levels, but also energy and environmental policy, medicine patents, financial regulations, “Buy Local” preferences, food safety, consumer labelling and more.

While the public has been shut out of the TPP negotiating process, hundreds of corporate lobbyists — representing companies like Walmart, Cargill and Chevron — have had access to the texts. This double-standard has assured that the TPP has been written in corporations’ interests, with little regard for working families, the environment or public health.

Now Representative Camp and Senator Baucus want even Congress to give up its constitutional authority to assure that trade agreement provisions are written in the best interests of the constituents they serve. Tell Congress to oppose this outrageously undemocratic manuevering and demand real oversight over the TPP.

Together, we can defeat this outdated, Nixon-era policymaking process. Thanks to your efforts, last year, over three-quarters of House Democrats and a good number of Republicans signed letters voicing their opposition to Fast Track. We need to encourage those Congresspeople to stay strong in what is certain to be an onslaught of corporate lobbying, and we need to demand that the others side with constituents over Wall Street and the Business Roundtable.

Unfortunately, corporate lobbyists are already on the attack in support of this awful bill. They’re pressing for Fast Track hard, hoping to get their ducks in a row for a quick vote. We need your help ensuring that Congress understands that the Fast Track vote is a priority.

TAKE ACTION: Urge Congress to vote against the Camp-Baucus “Fast Track” legislation.

From me.

One final word needs to be said about President Obama’s war against the middle class. The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) is his treaty, and besides everything outlined above, this treaty will also redistribute massive amounts of income from the 99 to the 1 percent, in the United States and outside. It will drive millions of Latin Americans out of the textile industry and into the US illegally, also increase the exportation of jobs from the USA, and the difference between the old higher US wages and the new lower wages overseas will go into the pockets of the super rich, thereby destroying much of our tax bases for schools, medicare and other social safety net programs.

Why are our schools destitute for money? The answer is simple. Free corporate income redistribution treaties from NAFTA to CAFTA and the TPP, have redistributed our middle class incomes to the rich, and that means our tax bases have been redistributed to the 1 percent as well. The TPP will only make things worst for schools.

The treaty will also undo what little Wall Street regulation there is, and tie the hands of any future president who might want to regulate the pirates of Wall Street in the future.

The US and probably the world is heading for the worst Great Depression in 80 years, and probably worse than the one in the 1930s. The TPP will only make it worst. Oh, and by the way, did I mention that Wall Street Senator Ron Wyden supports the TPP and Fast Track? Oh, that’s right! He’s Wall Street’s senator!

Obamacare and its malcontents

On October 24, Goldman Sachs paid Hilliary Clinton $200,000 for a half hour speech. They were so impressed by her investment sagacity, they invited her back on October 29 and paid her another $200,000 for another speech. Big money is flowing to Democratic and Republican Party politicians every day. Does anybody think that if I give Hilliary $100 that she’d come and give a speech at my house with my neighbors in attendance?

If Hilliary becomes president, she’ll be just as friendly to Wall Street as any other Wall Street president, like Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, Barack Obama, GW and HW Bush. In other words, the presidential election of 2016 has already been rigged against the 99 percent. Goldman Sachs has already purchased a Democratic nominee for president. Tons of other corporations are purchasing politicians as you read this.

Check out the complete story below.

Hilliary Clinton is likely to make a run for the Democratic Party presidential nomination in 2016. Polls show she is an overwhelming favorite to defeat such Democratic salwarts as current Vice President Joe Biden.

The Democratic Party currently represents corporate interests almost as much as the Republican Party. The only difference between the two parties is which sections of the top 0.05 income earners and corporations do they represent? Quite naturally, both parties happen to represent Wall Investment firms about equally. But for the most part, the battle between the parties is a battle between the parasites of the 1 percent, which is nearly always against and at the expense of the 99 percent. For example, Democrats represent Costco, while Republicans represent Walmart.

However, things are changing. By 2016, income and wealth will have continued to be redistributed from the 99 to the 1 percent via federal, state and local legislation. The corporate propaganda media, from Fox News to the New York Times, will attempt to limit debate on this crucial issue, as it always does. By 2016, the oncoming train wreck called the US economy may be completely off track, or at least, closer to it than it is now, and its already riding only on one rail. This suggests the issues of income and wealth redistribution will become an important topic, despite desperate attempts by the media to turn our attention away from it.

Hilliary Clinton was corrupted by and sold out to the 0.05 percent decades ago. She has a track record to prove it. So who could challenge her and win?

“Any candidate who challenged Clinton would need several key assets. The candidate would almost certainly have to be a woman, given Democrats’ desire to make history again. She would have to amass huge piles of money with relatively little effort. Above all, she would have to awaken in Democratic voters an almost evangelical passion. As it happens, there is precisely such a person. Her name is Elizabeth Warren.”

Check out the videos below in which Senator Warren questions US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geither. The second video is how she wondered at her very first Senate hearing why so few Wall Street banks are ever taken to court.
