JNN Editorial, August 10, 2016
For months the MSM denied a DNC conspiracy against Bernie Sanders and the millions of Americans who were Feeling The Bern, characterizing the allegations as equal to the Illuminati-Freemason-Rothschild trash talk in articles like Bernie Sanders Fans’ DNC ‘Collusion’ Conspiracy Theory is Embarrassing Garbage and Can we please stop with the Bernie Sanders conspiracy theories? Then, through the hands of Julian Assange, Editor-in-Chief of Wikileaks, something awesome happened; these conspiracy theories were proven true. I want to drag this a bit further into the dirt.
Let’s take a step backwards because we know all of that by now. Who is she really?
“I think that everybody is in favor of free and fair trade, and I think that NAFTA is proving its worth.” Hillary Clinton said this in 1996 over two years after the North American Free Trade Agreement was signed by the Bill Clinton administration. She also called the TPP the Gold Standard of trade agreements 54 times in total, while denouncing it once near the beginning of this years Presidential campaign. Who does she think she is fooling?
NAFTA was a direct assault on the working class. As the Economic Policy Institute explained, NAFTA had four major negative impacts:
- The loss of at least 700,000 jobs due to production moving to Mexico.
- Allowed employers to drive down wages, cut benefits, and basically destroy the unions.
- It nearly destroyed the Mexican agricultural and small business sectors and millions of Mexicans were forced to migrate to the US; creating the immigration “problem” that Trump wants to build a wall for, solving absolutely nothing in doing so, and the main reason why Obama is dubbed “Deporter in Chief”.
- It was the model free trade agreement and laid the foundation for the neoliberal trade model. Companies gets the benefits while the workers pay for it.
NAFTA stole the buying power of the middle class by allowing U.S. corporations to move production out of the country, lowering overhead costs for higher profit margins, and selling their products back to the U.S. This shifted the wealth upwards over a 20 year period; leaving wage increases at a stand still. I see a mental change in the whole of this too. All those negatively affected by this were increasingly more sick, the rate of widespread depression increased to epidemic levels while medicine prices soared to in-affordable heights. A vicious cycle that allowed Pharma to become BIG PHARMA.
When on his campaign trail Sen. Bernie Sanders repeatedly spoke out about “our crumbling inner cities and infrastructure”, this is what he was talking about. The government very clearly no longer cares how we live, because they are doing just fine and with the prospects of the long kept secret “free trade” agreement called Trans Pacific Partnership, it can only get better for the top 10%.
It was Hillary Clinton who acted as the main spokeswoman of NAFTA as White House documents from the Clinton administration revealed, Hillary even spoke at a confidential White House briefing on NAFTA in November 1993, a few days before it was approved by Congress. The documents also prove the fact that Hillary was, as John Nichols wrote in The Nation in 2008, “the featured speaker at a closed-door session where 120 women opinion leaders were hectored to pressure their congressional representatives to approve NAFTA.”
Hillary Clinton is a crusader for free trade and neoliberalism. While she hypocritically campaigns as if she is “stronger together” with the working class of an America that is clearly working as hard as it can for the 1%, most of us see through this veil of disguise. Her bot-like supporters are incredibly blinded by the Hollywood show she drags with her and they stand in complete disappointment at anyone who isn’t also hoping she becomes the first female at the helm of our country.
Hillary’s anti-free trade charade in this election is an insult to the working people who forgot what Obama said about her in 2008, “she will say anything and do nothing” to get elected. After Obama became president and appointed Clinton Secretary of State, she immediately reverted to being the spokeswoman of free trade with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
Noam Chomsky correctly explained that the TPP is “designed to carry forward the neoliberal project to maximize profit and domination, and to set the working people in the world in competition with one another so as to lower wages to increase insecurity.” He implies that Hillary Clinton represents a serious threat to American workers. I believe him. I also gave a short, but strong political speech to the German “Open Left Party” about the repercussions of this “pact” that you can read HERE.
Germany and others in the EU are strongly against this recent collection of trade agreements including the CETA, the TiSA and the one Clinton also, as Secretary of State, heavily supported: the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Hillary calls the TTiP an “economic NATO”, which is yet another yuuuge free trade deal that would have serious negative effects on workers, as well as the majority of citizens in the US and Europe. TTIP covers around a third of global trade and would create an open market of 829 million consumers and expand a trade relationship that’s already worth €2 billion every day.
While the TPP is aimed at economically isolating China, the TTIP, a geopolitical and economic weapon, is directed against Russia to hopefully put the breaks on Putin’s chance at strengthening economic ties with Europe.
Clinton has the near unanimous endorsements of the 1%; the Koch Brothers, who officially endorsed her, George Soros committed over $25 million to her, Warren Buffett, and countless other Wall Street goons. Even Facebook’s COO, Sheryl Sandberg, has also strongly come down in favor of Clinton this fall, is known to be a Democrat with political ambitions and there are even rumors that she might be in consideration for Treasury Secretary in a potential Clinton administration.
Why? Why does it seem to us that she has been chosen? Why do we feel she is unavoidably The One, and that no criminal activity will ever get her charged and indicted? I believe it is because there is far too much at stake on a level that most of us don’t see or understand. There is clearly a “secret” agenda that cannot be stopped now and Hillary is the only one who WILL continue what has already been started. Just look at all of the pre-planned blockades that were set underway throughout this entire election process.
Clinton will deliver all the economic policies, including TPP and free trade, that the greedy Masters of Wall Street demand. She will also continue her extremely aggressive foreign policy that makes fellow neocons drip bodily fluids at the prospect of more and bigger wars.
Hillary Clinton’s loud evil-witch cackling voice for these things is the reason behind issuing her the title of High Priestess of the Church of Free Trade and Neoliberalism.
“We came, we saw, and he died HAHAHAHAHAHAH AAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA”
That is one of the most evil things any politician has ever said. We must do everything in our collective power to stop this woman from winning this election.
