As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

No, Hillary Did Not Say She Would Absolutely, Positively Oppose TPP

I’ve covered these Clintons for a long time, and you have to watch them like a red-tailed hawk. They’re both attorneys, both longtime politicians, and both dishonest. Bad combination.

The big news out of the Clinton economic speech Thursday was that she supposedly said unequivocally that she would oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership. But look closely. That’s not what she said.

First, she teed up her comment by knocking those who oppose TPP.

“The answer is not to rant and rave or cut ourselves off from the world. That would end up killing even more jobs,” she said.

And then, the kicker:

“I will stop any trade deal that kills jobs or hold down wages, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership. I oppose it now, I’ll oppose after the election, and I’ll oppose it as president.”

Get it? Any trade deal that kills jobs or holds down wages. She left herself an out.

One can hear her six months or a year into her presidency saying:

“What I said is that I would stop any trade deal that kills jobs. Through tireless work, we have changed the Trans-Pacific Partnership so that now it’s a job creator, not a job killer.”

Now that sounds like our Hillary, right?

  1. I listened to her screeching for about five minutes yesterday. That was all I could take.
    As bad as Obama is, at least he is well modulated. Good God, she is awful in every way. Not one redeeming value.

    • I heard her screeching for about 5 minutes today….she was parroting everything Trump has based his campaign on….gonna fix the infrastructure, gonna produce thousands of jobs, gonna tax the rich-basically going to screw the rest of us I was thinking…I had to turn it off and listen to my Bible study on the radio…..I felt better after that.

      • I’ve posted this before, but I couldn’t stand her from the first time I saw her on TV during the ’92 campaign…she was bellowing on and on about “putting Bush on the unemployment line…so he’ll know what it’s like!”

        What a miserable person, I thought.

        • I once knew someone who was on the White House military staff when Hillary was First Lady. He said that Bill was easy enough to work with, but Hillary was a nightmare–imperious, arrogant, short tempered, snotty, demanding. He said you just could not satisfy or please her. It was impossible.

      • And she has the nerve to wear those pantsuits every day when running for the highest office in the land? she looks like a little old woman in childrens’ clothing. I love pants but she NEVER WEARS A SKIRT OF A DRESS? A slob for a woman President. For her to dress like that all the time shows her lack of respect for people, for herself and that she’s definitely still has a head injury, screwy Hillary and the worst dressed woman in America. And I can’t stand the screechy voice, and the fists flying all the time.

    • You do realize that listening to Hillary for one minute is equivalent to 1,000 years of time in Purgatory. New rules approved by the Vatican, apparently. So you’ve got 5,000 years of Purgatory time erased just by those five minutes of torture by Hillary. I’d have to think long and hard before I made my final decision….five minutes of Hillary in screech mode or 5,000 years of Purgatory. Decision, decisions. ;+}

    • Also the Clinton out,,,she said she HRC wouldn’t directly have anything to do with the CF and DOS, not that every other person at State and elsewhere would or could not.

      I am going to have to perk up and look for these outs.

  2. I was looking for some quotations for a friend. These aren’t them, but thought I would share.

    You can lead a man to Congress, but you can’t make him think. Milton Berle

    The reason there are two senators for each state is so that one can be the designated driver. Jay Leno

    I love to go to Washington – if only to be near my money. Bob Hope

    You have eagle-eyes for lawyer language, Keith, and yes, that is probably precisely what she will say after the election.
    I linked to an article concerning France but it is true for many countries facing economic and cultural chaos due to economic and immigrant politics. I think we are into some kind of a class-war although I know you do not like such terms here. The elites in the big cities are so disconnected with people elsewhere. The author writes that the big city elite deals with upper class people around the world and understand certain immigrants from Tunisia or Algier better than their own, white French citizens living in the rural regions. So these people are abandoned and labeled racists.
    As for my own country, I am so surprised that the ruling Socialist government do not understand the misery they have caused, especially for low income people and for people living in rural, formerly idyllic, little cities or villages, suddenly invaded by immigrants, suddenly riddled with crimes and conflicts. And they do not understand the effects on low income salaries this will bring. I think the new “rightist” parties, the parties the elite label “racist”. are the new working class parties. This is very obvious in Europe. And Trump is trying to push the Republicans in that direction too.
    I just heard on the radio that Hungarys government says absolutely no to accepting any “refugee”-immigrants. They are going to fight for their people. I applaud such politicians. But what will EU do ? The bureaucrats in Brussels are probably mulling on some “punishment”, but they have no solutions whatsoever.

    • Thank you for this link. I enjoyed reading and rereading it very much.
      Yes, it is much the same here in the USA.
      I’m old enough to remember when every little rural town had a small factory – some type of industry that provided economic stability to the community.
      Sort of like the hub of a wheel with public schooling, health care providers, stores and shops and gas stations acting as the spokes. The community rolled along and we were happy and optimistic.
      Those small towns were self sufficient as long as the factory was operational.
      Now, citizens of small towns are reliant upon employment elsewhere because the factories are long gone. And as a result the community itself is a ghost of its former self.
      Is it due to the relentless push for “growth?” Had never considered that but the push for increased efficiency and lower costs and high profits certainly were the reasons these small town factories disappeared.
      Transportation costs/difficulties are often cited as “the reason” along with cheaper production expenses elsewhere.
      Oh, this makes me sad just remembering those days of close knit communities. Yes, we had the poor, but the community itself lent help to those people. And yes, we had the rich – the factory owners and the big farmers, etc. but we all went to the same school and the same churches and the same stores and shops.
      Truthfully, there were no cultural divides.
      As I write this and think of the author’ swords, I believe he/she is correct.
      And I would like to note that here in the USA, the “service industry” has grown dramatically. Now I wonder if that is an effort by the political elites to supplant the loss of industrial jobs. There are always openings in the health care industry…just a thought.

      • I’m old enough to remember when every little rural town had a small factory – some type of industry that provided economic stability to the community.

        Interesting Aileen. We are not quite there yet, but with the collapse of the Soviet Union whole towns that were built around a plant or factory were destitute. The factory supported the town, the schools, shops etc. Chain reaction of destruction. It was a devastating.

        A little “funny” about that. I spent some time in a small town and I noticed almost all of the houses lining the main streets were painted blue. I asked my driver and he shrugged and said that he guessed that was the only paint available from the factory to steal. He chuckled, I chuckled — it was their version of stickin’ it to the man. At least they had a valid point.

        • I remember reading about a high level politician in the Soviet Union whose wife kept badgering him to purchase a sewing machine for her. He couldn’t find one to purchase locally and she kept on his case for months to buy her the sewing machine she so desired. Harangued him night and day about the sewing machine. Finally, after months of this, he acquired the permission and funds to build a sewing machine factory in his town. In fact, he had four of them built. LOL. Just to get her off his back. She finally got her sewing machine. And so did every one else in the village, one supposes. There were piles of sewing machines everywhere. But the wife got her new sewing machine. Yes, she did. ;+}

  4. Return of the Show “Truth or Consequences.” When the candidate for public office is unable to answer the question they must do a stupid stunt. Unless they can fabricate a rapid lie response. Kind like they do now. Wonder if the Clinton/Trump campaign will be made into a reality show? Tying is made easy, telling the truth becomes a struggle.

  5. Words and their usage – a very powerful tool.
    Notice I said “tool” not “weapon.”

    Notice Hillary often says “kill” instead of “hinder.”
    She always manages to tell us she will “fight” for this or that. So do most other politicians running for office. (They must be a very angry bunch of people with all the fighting they say they do or will do.)
    “Rant and Rave” – another interesting choice.
    As they used to say back in the day, “Them’s fightin’ words” all right.
    They choose the words they use on purpose in carefully crafted speeches…almost a form of brain washing, don’t you think?

    • Yes, the approved choice of words and phrases. It’s a type of politicized programming, a pre-casting of how people are “required” to think about issues in order to be accepted into an approved group and be seen as clever and wise. Linguistic programming. The elites and the smart set use it as a weapon to keep us in tow.

      High schools and colleges are infested with the practice, and the kids march along in verbal lock-step in order to be pass exams and be “liked” by teachers and peers. To not be seen as weird.

      The practice of which words and ideas are approved and which are not approved been around for a very long time, of course. Now, with the complete co-operation of the trained mice in the media, we see how wide-spread shaming, mocking and shunning are applied to those those who don’t think about issues the way the herd is required to think about issues.

      In our little Brave New World, the words chosen to describe anything must be approved by the elitists (media, politicians, teachers, etc) and repeated constantly in every forum. How we think about something (if you think about it for a second ;+} depends mightily on the vocabulary we use to think about something, to describe it to ourselves and communicate our ideas to others. When certain critical and descriptive words are forbidden by political correctness to be expressed by the herd, the three dimensional quality and the “roundness” of our opinions and ideas suffers greatly. We become less able to describe something accurately, and much less flexible and creative in our critical thinking processes. And far more vulnerable to the tricks and capers of crooks like Hillary and Obama and Chris Matthews, for example. Does that make sense? I think it does.

  6. I was reading the Drudge linked article to the Observer.com about the tech companies colluding with the media and the Democrat Party to elect Hillary. Just as the media has no shame, neither to these tech globalists. I spent years in SV and it’s difficult to describe the mindset of these people who are so preening and absent when it comes to American heritage, culture and freedoms. It’s almost as if Zuckerberg believes he is handsome and polished.

    At least back in the day the leader of the Mean Girls was good looking and kewl and not some lumpish corrupt criminal who can barely make it up a flight of stairs on into a chair without plopping down. Odd lot.

    • On tech companies and the White House, this:

      “Google averages a meeting with the White House every week”

      http://freebeacon.com/national-security/obama-admin-gives-green-light-iran-build-two-new-nuclear-plants/

      There’s some high level skulduggery going on here. Google (and other similar companies) have piles, mountains of our personal data by virtue of their ability to intrude on our internet behavior, etc. Surely, they are sharing it with the White House. I don’t like it one bit.

      • iT IS SO DISGUSTING THAT BARACK OBAMA IS THE ONE THAT IS DECIDING WHO OUR NEXT PRESIDENT SHOULD BE. TALK ABOUT NO SHAME, OBAMA HAS NO SHAME, HE DOESN’T EVEN HIDE HIS EVIL INTENTIONS TOWARD OUR ELECTION. HE SHOULD BE ARRESTED AND TRIED FOR MANY CRIMES, INCLUDING TREASON AND THEN EXECUTED LIKE THE ROSENBERGS IN THE 1940’S. HE IS NO DIFFERENT THAN THEY WERE, GIVING AID AND COMFORT TO THE ENEMY (iRAN) AND FORCING AN ELECTION DOWN AMERICA’S THROATS JUST LIKE HIS HORRIBLE HEALTH CARE HE FORCED US TO HAVE. OBAMA AND CLINTON ARE THE ENEMY WITHIN. HE IS BENT ON DESTRUCTION AND WILL CONTINUE DESTROYING AMERICA THROUGH CLINTON IF SHE WINS AND THE ELECTION IS RIGGED FOR CLINTON AS I WRITE THIS. OBAMA AND CLINTON SHOULD BE STOPPED IMMEDIATELY FROM THEIR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES. THEY ARE LAUGHING AT AMERICANS BEHIND OUR BACKS.

  7. Every word she says is spoken to deceive, including the definitive articles.

    Anyone remember “Mommie Dearest”? Because that’s what Shrillary reminds me of lately: Joan Crawford, on a bender.
