alese195 There are currently more than 16,000 nuclear weapons on #Earth. Each one has the power to kill millions in a matter of minutes. Warheads have been stolen, illegally sold, and/or lost over the past 70 years. It's only a matter of time before one falls into the wrong hands. The only sane number is zero. #globalzero #presidentobama #barackobama #liberal #democrat 58min

kenerojr #tpp #nafta #obama #cbc #democrats #congressionalblackcaucus | I'll be helping Glen Ford write the next CBC report card. Stay tuned and in the meanwhile, google and read the article from #blackagendareport. From the piece:

#PresidentObama’s brazen bid to transfer the reins of international governance to the Wall Streets of the world suffered a devastating setback at the hands of his own party, on Tuesday. All but one Democratic senator rejected giving the president “fast track” authority to ram through a #TransPacificPartnership treaty (TPP) that would put corporations on an equal or higher legal footing than sovereign nations. The 52 to 45 vote, well short of the 60 needed for passage, was perhaps the most dramatic display yet of the center-right nature of the Obama presidency. On this issue, we saw a Democratic president backed almost entirely by #Republicans. Obama is even more dependent on the GOP on trade issues than was his mentor, Bill Clinton, who pushed through the disastrous North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1993 with only a minority of Democrats in favor. The Republican leadership of the U.S. House is thought to be unlikely to bring “fast track” to a vote on the floor without majority support.

Passage of NAFTA was the first big victory for the first “New Democrat” president. In the 1980s, Arkansas governor #BillClinton had helped found the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC), along with Tennessee’s Al Gore and other white southerners, to counter the power of Blacks and labor in the party. The #DLC quickly became the #Democrats’ major pocket for corporate contributions, thus giving a decisive advantage to the party’s reinvigorated right wing and its young leader, the “Man from Hope.” Clinton immediately set about repaying Wall Street, first with NAFTA and ultimately through the DLC-GOP dismantling of Glass-Steagall restrictions on banking.

#BarackObama was the second Democratic Leadership Council president, a direct political descendant of #Clinton..
