    Did she mention the TPP?

    No? I searched, it wasn’t there.

    I did find this:

    Our political system is so paralyzed by gridlock and dysfunction that most Americans have lost confidence that anything can actually get done. And they’ve lost trust in the ability of both government and Big Business to change course.

    Government and Big Business are joined at the hip and humming right along.

    Why would they want to change course?

    Yesterdays TSA (fast-track) vote should demonstrate that. The Democratic President and his Republican allies in the house passed fast-track, it has another hurdle to go but I predict that will be solved.

    They will also need to remove anti-human trafficking (slavery) provision of the Senate version in conference.

    This Obama wants and will get.

    He will then conclude his secret negotiations of the mammoth not actually so much about trade, trade deal which is classified. Except of course the Corporate Lobbyist writing it have clearence.

    This will then be presented for an up or down vote by Congress with no amendments and no filibuster in the Senate. 10 hous of debate in each chamber.

    With fast-track its passage is a done deal.

    Obama, the first black president is also the first to endorse slavery.

    Hillary will be the Slavery Queen.

    A mite ironic standing on Roosevelt Island preaching economic populism across from Wall Street and say nothing at all about the TPP. She is going to,peddle the bullshit right to the end.

    Are you ready for….

    …TPP: the Gold Standard of trade deals

    Her voice is fingernails on the chalkboard for me

    Did she take questions from the audience?

    She left an opening for O’Malley and Sanders to exploit and Warren and Sherrod to tune her up. Here’s hoping they dispense with the nice guy bullshit.

    I think that is the audience. In photography it is called bokeh. A blurred background to make the subject stand out.

    What is the response from the stenographer press? Welcome to “There are NO Red States…” V. 2.0 She has no charisma and it’s going to kill her chances again. Who is O’Malley but a white O’Bama? The only thing sure about our Pres election is the billions spent on saying nothing by both legacy parties. Empty promises and novelty acts. I will continue to vote third party all over the ballot and pray for a miracle. Fer Heaven’s sake Hillary has a RED arrow pointing to the RIGHT. This is a really bad movie.

    I wonder when she (or any other candidate) speaks about reforming the criminal justice system- what exactly, in concrete terms, do they mean by that? It’s something I am interested in, and will be paying attention to.

    Not sure about mainstream press, but anyway, The Atlantic has a good ‘cheat sheet’ on the candidates so far:

    No snark intended. . .

    More than anything else, Hillary needs to be mindful of the angle of overhead lighting. The rest comes afterwards, if at all.

    I like what he said about Trump:

    “I’m deeply ashamed and upset that I had to fill out this entry.”

    Atlantic could have omitted several of those people and at least given a paragraph to third party candidates like Dr. Jill Stein and the Green Party. She couldn’t even get in the MSM when she got arrested just for trying to attend the Pres debate in 2012. If she got on the podium with Mitt and Barack she would have become a contender. This is just a performance and whoever runs from the D or R party is pre approved by Wall Street.

    I don’t think she has announced yet? that could be why she was omitted.

    I think I would call the Atlantic mainstream press.

    Dr. Stein announced on CSpan a month ago. She would have to be caught in a threesome with Caitlyn Jenner and OJ Simpson to get a mention on MSM.

    That’s what you have in your head if you buy one word of her Fauxgressive garbage
    After 8 years of Peace Prize, mouthing platitudes while shaking down cash through your foundation just ain’t gonna cut it

    If she couldn’t sell us on her bonafides against Peace Prize’s paper thin resume, 8 years since just makes her 8 years older

  21. June 13, 2015 at 10:29 pm

    Hillary calls Obamatrade the Gold Standard of Trade Deals

    Which is bogus because we haven’t been on the “Gold Standard” in this sad country since 1971

    Can’t wait til Bernie runs the ads attacking her for that quote

    Yeah. right.

  22. June 13, 2015 at 10:53 pm

    Plastic smile on her

    Is that masking seething contempt or Botox side effect?

    This statement from HRC proves she’s not to be trusted:
    [FDR’s] legacy lifted up a nation and inspired presidents who followed. One is the man I served as Secretary of State, Barack Obama, and another is my husband, Bill Clinton.
    Clinton, who overturned Glass-Steagall leading directly to the 2008 crash and Obama, who has been protecting the banks that FDR fought against and Clinton unleashed.

    What a fraud HRC is.

    Although it pains me to quote him, David Frum once remarked that “Hillary Clinton wouldn’t lead a fight for motherhood and apple pie if motherhood and apple pie were polling below 70 percent.
