Hillary in America

16 April 2016

As secretary of state, Clinton continued to administer the punishing security and economic policies put into place by her husband and his successor, George W. Bush, policies that have turned Mexico into a country of mass clandestine graves. Clinton’s own contribution to Mexico’s misery was to push for the privatization of its national petroleum industry. As Steve Horn has written in detail on DeSmog blog, not only did the Clinton State Department help open up of Mexico’s oil sector to foreign capital, a number of Clinton’s close aids then moved into the private sector to profit from that opening. It was FDR who forced US oil interests to accept Mexico’s nationalization in the 1930s, so here we have a case of Hillary Clinton quite literally rolling back the New Deal.

Greg Grandin, “A Voter’s Guide to Hillary Clinton’s Policies in Latin America” (The Nation, 15 April 2016)

The whole idea that U.S. policy would change with the present administration, or that a new one under Clinton will change anything is laughable… in a tragic sort of way.

    About time someone else said something, this woman and the Democratic party is a complete bunch of fascists pretending to be “humanitarian” all the while pickpocketing the public and anyone else who they can take from that they can’t either bury or destroy politically.

    We knew Bush and the GOP was bad, well this group is clearly the same exact recipe but with a different name.
