Hillary's Economic Plan: Continued New Millennium Disaster

Hillary’s Economic Plan: Continued New Millennium Disaster

by Stephen Lendman

America is mired in protracted Main Street Depression because of a generation of bipartisan governance serving privileged interests at the expense of most others - Republicans and Democrats sharing guilt.

Neoliberal harshness became official US policy in the 1990s - during the Bill and Hillary co-presidency. Giving them a third term assures more of the same - the horror of deepening poverty, mass unemployment and underemployment, homelessness and hunger at record levels, the world’s richest country thirdworldized while monied interests never have things better.

Believe nothing Hillary says. She’s an exposed serial liar. She lied about wars of aggression she orchestrated against Libya and Syria. 

She lied about helping to topple Honduran and Paraguayan leaders. She lied about rigging Haiti’s election to install a US-controlled puppet.

She lied about using her home server and personal BlackBerry for official State Department business, including easily hacked classified email exchanges. She lied about opposing TPP after assertively supporting it.

She lied about helping America’s most needy despite contemptuously ignoring them for throughout her political career. She lied about being a jobs creator as US senator. She lied about wanting peace while supporting and encouraging all US wars since the 1990s.

She’s no progressive. She’s no democrat (small “d”). She’s no supporter of rule of law principles.  She’s Wall Street’s favorite. War-profiteers love her. So do Big Pharma, Monsanto and other corporate predators. 

She makes painful listening - making empty promises to be broken straightaway if anointed America’s next president - guaranteed!

Hillary: “We have the most dynamic, productive workforce in the world, bar none.”

Fact: Then why are half of US households impoverished or bordering it? Why does America resemble a third world economy? Why is nearly one-fourth of its working age population unemployed? Why is most of the rest of it underemployed?

Hillary: “There is nothing America can’t do…”

Fact: It’s the world’s leading aggressor, humanity’s greatest threat.

Hillary: “If I am fortunate enough to be your president, I will have your back every single day that I serve.”

Fact: As me-first lady, US senator and secretary of state, her agenda was polar opposite her above Big Lie.

Hillary: “I want every American family to be able to tell the same story. If you work hard, you do your part, you should be able to give your children all the opportunities they deserve. That is the basic bargain of America.”

Fact: She borrowed from husband Bill in the 90s, saying “if you work hard and play by the rules, you ought to have a decent life and a chance for your children to have a better one.”

Since the 1970s, each new generation has been worse off than the preceding one economically - especially since the neoliberal 90s under Bill and Hillary Clinton.

She claims she’ll be a jobs creator, restore fairness to the economy, make top earners pay their fair share, “go to bat for working families (and) bring people together to deliver results that will make a difference in your lives.”

She’s never done it before, yet wants people to believe she’ll be a model leader as president. 

It doesn’t matter if enough people believe her or not. She’s the establishment candidate pre-selected to succeed Obama - likely election rigging assuring it. Will WW III follow?
