As White House Spotlights Conflict With Democratic Presidential and Congressional Candidates by Escalating Toward TPP Lame-Duck Vote, Sen. Warren and Hundreds of Academics Urge Rejection

WASHINGTON - The investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) regime at the heart of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) that would newly empower thousands of multinational corporations to challenge U.S. policies before panels of three private lawyersto demand taxpayer compensation is the target of a letter sent to Congress today by leading pro-free trade U.S. economics and law professors calling on Congress to reject the TPP.

Which is why Obimbo is well on his way to becoming the worst president EVER (not even W contemplated creating such an everlasting stench ...)!

Add this to your comment: Obama is a traitor in the real sense of the word. He's been giving the country bread and circuses, all the little triumphs we're allowed to have because they don't cut into the bottom line. A good president? That would be funny if it weren't tragic.
And why haven't Warren, Clinton and Kaine not said he's a traitor? Does the "party loyalty" that has come near to wrecking the DP prevent that kind of honesty, or do Clinton and Kaine hope Obama will ram the signing through before she takes over, so that she can murmur, Oh dear, and go on pretending she was against it after she was for it?
Over here in Europe, we're demonstrating and signing petitions, trying to stop the EU Parliament from signing the TTIP, the same pact that pretends to be a trade agreement. Does the Parliament notice us? Do the media? Ha ha.
