The House Votes on Fast Track Tomorrow: Vote Will Be Close

by Scott Creighton

President Obama is working diligently behind the scenes to get uncommitted dems and republicans to agree to giving him fast track authority for a slew (3 at this point) of fascist “trade” deals which amount to a new bill of rights for globalist corporations worldwide.

This is actually a month and a half earlier than they had expected (sometime after the summer break)

It comes at a moment when the European Commission is voting on the TTIP.

External pressure from interest groups forced the commissioners to vote to postpone their vote (or they are waiting to make sure Obama gets Fast Track before committing to the fascist “trade” deal themselves)

Over at Battle for the Net, they have a page where you can sign a petition and have it sent to your congress critters. Here is the text of what they will send them when you sign it:

I’m writing to urge you to oppose Fast Track for the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Decisions like this affect everyone and need to be debated transparently so that people can have a voice on the issues that they care about. Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority is undemocratic, and I expect the representative to oppose it now and in the future.

It’s straight forward and simple and to the point.

It may not do much. But then again you never know. The vote is supposed to be close. Since we all can’t hop a bus and be there tomorrow to march against it, maybe this will help.

At least you go on record opposing this shit and they have to go on record ignoring you.

You also get the option to have them put you through to your representatives’ phone lines so you can leave a message. 2 of the 3 of mine already had full message systems. I did leave one though.

INN World Report Radio Interview W/ Tom Kiely Tonight @ 7:30 pm Eastern

Hi folks.

I’ll be doing an interview with Tom Kiely in a few hours. 7:30 pm eastern to be exact. His radio broadcast, INN Radio, has been around since 2002 when he and Lenny Charles started it as an alternative news program. He spoke at the Rethink 9/11 event in New York City back in Sept. of 2013 along with the likes of Cynthia McKinney, William Pepper, Richard Gage and others.

Tom recently moderated a panel with Gilad Atzmon and Rabbi Yaakov Shapiro at Theater 80 in New York. “Judaism VS Jewish Identity Politics”. He also did a panel with Webster Tarpley this year at the Left Forum discussing color revolutions.

Have a listen. Should be fun.

This is What Happens When Fracking and Industry Influence on the EPA are Discussed on Fox News

by Scott Creighton

Granted, the guest is an a-hole: talking over the host and calling him a liar on his own show. He could have handled Varney’s claim in a much better way, like perhaps asking if he took a video of his burning tap-water 12 years ago like he claimed. After all, what new property owner wouldn’t once he discovered he bought a house where you could lite the tap-water on fire? That would have been much more useful in getting Varney’s fans to think about his claim.

Oops! Philly Fed Admits QE widens inequality

from Not Quant

Once again, the Federal Reserve proves that it’s the last one to know everything that we knew already.   Today’s stunning announcement:  The Philadelphia Fed admits they (“may have”) made the wealthy wealthier and Main Street poorer.

Oops.  Sorry America.

inspirational_Redistribution

The Philly Fed insists that “redistributing wealth” to the wealthy isn’t the main idea, but just a potential side effect of stimulus that they can’t do much about.

“Monetary policy currently implemented by the Federal Reserve and other major central banks is not intended to benefit one segment of the population at the expense of another by redistributing income and wealth,” …

“However, it is probably impossible to avoid the redistributive consequences of monetary policy”.

We’re shocked.  Shocked, we tell you.  It turns out that handing out free money,  buying worthless assets at face value and allowing a small cabal of private banks the sole right to access your magic free-money window, “may” have given some financial advantages to “one segment of the population”.   But that’s just a side effect of saving the “economy”.

Of course, it’s not just the bankers.  The 1% also happen to hold vastly more financial assets than the lower 99% — so they may directly benefit from financial asset-inflating monetary policy.

Why I Changed My Opinion on the Sandy Hook Shooting Psyop

by Scott Creighton

When I first started covering the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School as part of what I called the American Gladio campaign, I came at it from the position that the perpetrators of it (Adam Lanza, if he ever existed, was a patsy, incapable of the technical aspects of the event) hired a couple of assets who did in fact kill 26 people, 20 of whom were children.

I have in the nearly two and a half years later, changed that position. I now believe the entire event was staged and that no children were killed.

It is a rather drastic shift and thus far I have yet to fully own it by explaining why it is that I made it. So, in response to The Walrus’ question in the comment section of a recent article, I posted a rather large comment explaining how I came to this  different conclusion.

I figured I would post that comment as an article explaining to all of you how and why I changed my opinion on the subject.

Left Cover Obama’s Fascist Trade Deal Targets Medicare, New Leak Reveals

from the Huffington Post

For the second time in a week, Medicare is complicating an already fraught debate over the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.

A recent draft of the health care transparency section of TPP released by Wikileaks on Wednesday reveals the deal would make Medicare vulnerable to legal challenges from pharmaceutical companies and jeopardize future attempts by the insurer to negotiate lower drug prices.

In a modest victory for global health care advocates, however, the leaked draft does not contain previous language explicitly protecting prescription drug prices from being marked down by government insurers….

… Wednesday’s revelation marks the second time in a week that the implications of TPP for Medicare, whether direct or indirect, complicated efforts to pass fast-track authority that would speed up passage of the trade deal. On Tuesday, labor unions and seniors groups sent two letters to House members asking them to vote against a bill that accompanies fast-track authority legislation because it would cut Medicare reimbursements by $700 million to pay for a Trade Adjustment Assistance extension (a fund set up to aid Americans who lose their jobs to overseas ventures just like NAFTA did… make the poor pay to cover it is basically their idea… this part of the bill was added in the House as a “compromise”)
