P.S. to "The Consummate Liar..."
About two minutes ago, I watched (on DemocracyNow.org) a replay of Obama on a News commentary show roundtable discussion---on Hardball on MSNBC---in which the President stated, "Everything I do has been focused on how do we make sure the Middle Class is getting a fair deal. I would not be doing this Trade deal [the TPP] if I didn't think it was good for the Middle Class...". Maybe he actually believes his own Propaganda; either that or he's lying again. Obama's economic, monetary, fiscal, war, and Trade policies work largely against both the Middle Class and Industry. He protects Wall Street at the expense of the Middle Class and Industry. He's a big believer in Globalization and Financialization, both of which are destroying the Middle Class AND American Industry.
After the news clip, Democracy Now! went back to Lori Wallach, the premier expert on TPP at Trade Watch and in my view, a genuine American hero. Obama says Elizabeth Warren is "wrong" on the TPP. In great detail, Ms. Wallach laid out precisely why it's Obama who is wrong...dead wrong. See the Democracy Now newscast for Wednesday, May 13, 2015. The Corporatist Obama again is trying to sell the American People a load of crap.
The MSNBC video clip wound up with Obama saying, "If you look at the facts, they [the TPP critics] are wrong.". Fine, Mr. President... why don't you show us the facts? We can depend only on WikiLeaks to see any of the TPP Agreement. What are you trying to hide? And don't give us the weak cop-out that releasing the content will compromise negotiations. That's BS... besides, even if it's true, we don't care. Furthermore, we don't want the TPP in any shape or form.
Fairly recent History has revealed that every single "Free Trade" Agreement since the early '90s (including the WTO abomination) has been a disaster for Industry and the Middle Class in this country.
Not just my opinion. Be Well
