Fox News Lying Again!!!! Pacific Trade Agreement In Peril!!!!

This is such bs!  I’m grateful for what Fox News has done, but, they’ve gone off the deep end and can now be counted as the LSM.  They’re an advocacy group.  


Obama trade push runs aground as House Democrats derail key bill

In a dramatic defeat for the White House, President Obama’s trade agenda ran aground in the House on Friday as Democrats banded together in opposition despite a personal plea from the president. 

In a 302-126 vote, the House killed a worker aid bill that was tied to the president’s main agenda item — legislation that would give Obama “fast-track” authority to negotiate trade deals. Without it, the trade push withers for now. The vote marked a stunning blow for the president at the hands of his own party, with Nancy Pelosi and labor unions helping drive the stake into the legislation in the end. 

Minutes before the vote, Pelosi took to the floor to appeal for a “better deal” for American workers. 

Afterward, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest called the vote a “procedural snafu,” downplaying the drama and voicing hope that a bipartisan majority could eventually be reached. “These kinds of entanglements are endemic to the House of Representatives,” Earnest said. 

But the margin of defeat Friday was already raising questions about how Obama might be able to persuade more Democrats. 

The key vote Friday was on the so-called Trade Adjustment Assistance bill, a program that retrains workers displaced by trade. The bill was originally put on the table as a sweetener to help get Democrats on board and ultimately move the “fast-track” bill. But Democrats are so opposed to that legislation, all but 40 opposed the sweetener. …..

Hmmm ….. Let’s think, here.  40 Dems supported the bill.  But, the majority in the House are Republicans!  So, if Dems who are in the minority, with 40 defectors killed the bill, …… well, wait!!!

  • 246 Republicans
  • 188 Democrats
  • 0 Independents
  • 1 Vacancies

So, 40 Dims voted for the bill, this means 144 voted against this bill.  But, the vote tally was 302-126.  302-148=154.  So, there were actually more Repubs voting against the bill than Dems.  What was the headline? 

Put Fox with HuffPo, they’re equally honest.

    FOX has me yelling at the idiot box again. There is so much that is newsworthy that they ignore, and so much that is not news that they report 3 times hourly. I would rather get Bigfoot updates daily than hear every 20 minutes that the 2 killers are still on the loose.

      When crap like the “2 killers on the loose” stories are happening, you know something else is happening …… like the Obamatrade vote.

      2 killers on the loose? They should go to Baltimore! They’d fit in quite well! Or, Chicago. How many killers to those places have on the loose?

    Why should the MSM (including Fox) report news? They are not in the news business. They are in the advertising business. Their business is to gather eyeballs which they then sell to companies who wish to place their products where the eyeballs will see them. Any news which the MSM happen to present is strictly accidental and only done as part of the eyeball gathering process.

    Believing that MSM supplies news is like believing that mouse traps are in the cheese vending business.

    . .oh, James, you don’t understand the ‘new math’ . . ( . .or maybe the ‘common core’ math . . ! 🙂 ). See, 144 out of 188 is over 76% of dammorats voting against it . . ..
    BUT, only 154 of 248 Repugnantans is only 62%. So you see, ‘more’ dammorats voted against it than repugnatans ( . .by percentage . . ). So that’s why they tgave more ‘importance’ to the dammorats in killing the bill . . .

    . . geez, I need another drink . . !

      Isn’t it racist to just assume that these people need aid based upon their skin color? And isn’t it discrimination to not offer this kind of aid to white immigrants? I mean if we are going to live in an ultra PC world, shouldn’t it be fair?

      • DirkH says:

        We are not racist. White Muslim Albanians/Kosovars and Bosniak Muslims mixed with Syrians simply use buses to drive from Yugoslavia over Austria to Germany. The bus drivers unload them on Autobahn truck stop parking lots and drive off.
