It took just a few days after the stunning defeat of Obama's attempt to fast-track the Trans Pacific Partnership bill in the Senate at the hands of his own Democratic party, before everything returned back to normal and the TPP fast-track was promptly passed. Why? The simple answer: money. Or rather, even more money.
Because while the actual contents of the TPP may be highly confidential, and their public dissemination may lead to prison time for the "perpetrator" of such illegal transparency, we now know just how much it cost corporations to bribe the Senate to do the bidding of the "people." In the Supreme Court sense, of course, in which corporations are "people."
According to an analysis by the Guardian, fast-tracking the TPP, meaning its passage through Congress without having its contents available for debate or amendments, was only possible after lots of corporate money exchanged hands with senators. The US Senate passed Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) – the fast-tracking bill – by a 65-33 margin on 14 May. Last Thursday, the Senate voted 62-38 to bring the debate on TPA to a close.
Those impressive majorities follow months of behind-the-scenes wheeling and dealing by the world’s most well-heeled multinational corporations with just a handful of holdouts.
Using data from the Federal Election Commission, the chart below (based on data from the following spreadsheet) shows all donations that corporate members of the US Business Coalition for TPP made to US Senate campaigns between January and March 2015, when fast-tracking the TPP was being debated in the Senate.
The result: it took a paltry $1.15 million in bribes to get everyone in the Senate on the same page. And the biggest shocker: with a total of $195,550 in "donations", or more than double the second largest donor UPS, was none other than Goldman Sachs.
The summary findings:
The amounts given rise dramatically when looking at how much each senator running for re-election received.
Two days before the fast-track vote, Obama was a few votes shy of having the filibuster-proof majority he needed. Ron Wyden and seven other Senate Democrats announced they were on the fence on 12 May, distinguishing themselves from the Senate’s 54 Republicans and handful of Democrats as the votes to sway.
Aren't Goldman Sachs, Pfizer, Proctor & Gamble, Disney and others on the list owned and run by progressive Jews? Aren't they, Wall St., the to large to fail Banks, run by the same group of criminals for past few decades? All these evil progressive multi-million-billionaires Jews and non Jew progressives in bed with each other? This has been going on for decades by the same people. They own/control the unions? Am i a racist for pointing that out? Should i have a round or two pumped in me for that type of thinking? Educated me.
The enemy are the same progressive banking group of Jews, that's just a fact. We have given our country to the progressive criminal selfish Jew. They control everything, including the media, entertainment industry, FM radio, advertisement industry, etc. Most all information that goes around other than some on the internet is control by them with the exception of a few industries like big oil, companies like Foxsnews, AM radio, but that will be own by them eventually because they can not and will not stand for a competitive market. The progressive Jew wants it all. It's just the way it is. They will eventually kill to get. Actually, they'll use someone else to do their dirty work, that's how they operate. Now it isn't just the progressive Jew that are destroying the country, however, they are the ones at the top controlling the strings of their puppets.
You left out jewwatch.com, Eva Braun. You must be new on Soros' payroll.
Then, we have no one to vote for, maybe I should run.
By continuing to elect the wrong politicians and others that hold public office we have given our country away to the lowest forms whom all have gotten filthy rich off the citizens. Who do you think organized this decades ago? The big banks did. The Rockefeller's, Rothschild, the mob types influenced the government with bribes and such with money from illegal activities. Back in the 1920' 30's it got underway, large scale bribery by the big banks and other filthy greedy progressives. The 1929 market crash was organized by the progressive Leftist/communist Jews. If you look into it the ones that didn't get effected, is it coincidental that the same group removed their money out of the stock market and locked down the banks the week before the crash? That is a fact not told.
Some people refuse to understand, refuse to see. That's their problem, but don't let them influence you. Look into such things and whose actually in control of the money, the news, the entertainment industry, education, the advertisement industry, the unions, and the printed word the past 60+ years. They bought up the media industry after WWII. In 1952 they realized that the TV was the key to influencing you and I. You will learn that they are the progressives, all are the same group of people. The progressive Jew George Boy Soros isn't doing all this on his own. He has Hollywood, the media, the entertainment industry, many colleges and universities, the banking system, an so on, working together toward one goal. Wipe out any and all opposition. That means everyone that isn't them. Combined, they're killing this country. They are here at this site watching, recording all we say. They've been here since this site opened? Why wouldn't they be? Of all sites like this why wouldn't progressives be involved. Don't you think they have all our names, addresses and much more? Sorry, but I'm beginning to not trust this site. Who are they? Figure it out for yourself. Hint, they want to shut down all those who disagree with them. They wish to get rid of the non conformers, the so called racist. Those that point certain things out. They must be democrats or a similar breed? My suggestion to them, behave yourselves you filthy animals!
It started way before 1920.
I know but didn't need to get into all the details. Woodrow Wilson was one of them or was used by them anyway. The filth have been here for along time. They started the civil war.
Why not disclose what their exact offense is and allow us to comment?
I'll educate you $$it-for-brains. First, learn the English language. It's clearly not your first.
Then ask Soros for a raise, you're going to have to work much harder to disrupt this board. The DNC is not happy with you.
