Bill fits the bill for sneaking that one in---so who in this world can remove it? Is anyone left in government and other places of power, who is either not corrupt or threatened by the !% who control all, the world over? That leaves "We The People". But, we waited too long to resist, so now they have military and law enforcement all set in place, just waiting for the TRUTH to hit the fan and splatter around with such gusto, that even their aiders and abettors, the media, will actually report it. Thanks Judy, for another ugly bit of truth.

Here we have another conflict of interest, which is now so commonplace that no one even bats an eye in our corrupt corporate government. Clinton and her cronies have their financial tentacles everywhere.

To keep things going the status quo, the politicians have to do their backers bidding or no more dollars for their campaigns. This proves it goes all the way to the top. Now that the public has this information what are they going to do with it come November.

Thanks everyone. In reply to Bob, I'm afraid this news will have little or no impact on what happens in Nov. It seems the electorate is nearly blind to corruption. I don't know how many people are paying attention to Clinton's enormous push to promote and enable fracking.

Thanks for posting, Judy.

Yeah, the corruption from the top just flows outward and continues to include those who have been entrenched within the lobbying of dirty fossil fuel industries. Quid pro quo. You wash my dirty hands and I'll keep yours clean, too.
I guess what the Clinton campaign didn't count on, ('cuz they're stuck in the mud of decades past), is that so many would be absolutely fed up and sick to death of this Corporate Cronyism.

Enough of us are just absolutely done with "meeting halfway" because we know it never happens.
They suck up all the oxygen. They pat each other on the back for a job well done as they watch their bank accounts expand. We don't matter; we are an inconvenience at the very least......and something to 'snuff out' at worst.....any way they have to.

What we need is an all-out ban on fracking rather than some of the half-baked attempts that we have seen to clean it up a bit with inadequate regulations. The faster we can make fossil fuels obsolete the better. Of course this will take time, but time is running out.

Certainly there is no excuse for people with ties to the industry to be involved with making any rules regarding fracking. This is an example of why a Clinton administration is such a threat. She and the Clinton foundation are in bed with so many corporations that it's preposterous to think she can function without some degree of influence.

There are other options besides the 2-party duopoly. Jill Stein of the Green Party or Gary Johnson of the LIbertarian Party. I do not know much about Johnson's plan for the environment; but, Jill Stein has been an environmental health activist for quite some time. I would trust her to stop fracking, the TPP, and so forth before I would trust Hillary Clinton to do it. Jill's plan is much like Bernie's plan, only better. Check it out here:

You can see that it is a safe and sensible plan.

If either of the candidates representing the 2-party duopoly are elected, then the biggest winners will be the corporations.
