IT'S DISAPPOINTING that instead of embracing Bernies popular [campaign] rhetoric, HRC makes attacks that (I think) tips her hand, that if/when elected she will (in effect) be forced to continue to govern as a pro-military/corportist.
Tobie Mining and Energy sues Columbia for $16.5 Billion under US-Columbia Free Trade Agreement (Hillary’s work, as was the Keystone XL) because they can’t destroy a National Park in the Amazon Rainforest.

This from the SumOfUs:
A U.S. mining company has launched a $16.5 billion lawsuit against Colombia.
What did Colombia do to earn this dubious distinction? Well, the government stopped a deadly gold mine that was threatening the Amazon rainforest.
Not only does the Colombian government have a right to protect the world’s most diverse rainforest from profit-hungry mining interests -- it has a duty to do so.
