WH Spox Says He ‘Noticed’ Hillary Said She ‘Looked’ at TPP Details Before Release – Breitbart  …  “In the first clip at last night’s CNN’s Democratic presidential primary debate in Las Vegas, candidate Hillary Clinton said of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), ‘I did say when I was secretary of state three years ago that I hoped it would be the gold standard. It was just finally negotiated last week and in looking at it did not meet my standards.'”

“Wednesday at the White House press briefing, when asked if it was possible she actually looked at the agreement because it had not yet been released, press secretary Josh Earnest said, ‘Yeah I noticed that too,’ adding because ‘the details matter’ they ‘look forward to, as soon as possible, being able to put forward the text of the agreement so that everybody can review it and make their own judgment.'”

COMMENT: How is that possible, unless both Hillary and/or the White House are lying again?

Cuomo Paid State Workers to Fill Seats at Climate Change Event – New York Post  …  “Gov. Andrew Cuomo wasn’t taking any chances that there might be empty seats at a speech he delivered last week on climate change — so state workers were summoned on the taxpayer dime to fill the audience, The Post has learned. The workers said they left their jobs in the middle of the day Thursday and were paid their full salaries to hear Cuomo at Columbia University announce the state was joining a global effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. ‘I’d rather be at the park,’ said one of the workers, who is employed by the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and who has no connection to climate issues.’ ‘He said attendance is not required, but is viewed favorably, and that the practice is common throughout state government to support Cuomo.'”

“‘They often ask,’ he said, referring to supervisors. ‘We get emails, and they’ll ask us if we want to go.’ He called the practice ‘AstroTurfing’ — an attempt to fabricate grassroots support. ‘Public employees take an oath that they won’t use their position for their personal advantage,’ the employee said. ‘How can you expect any state workers to take it seriously when the boss isn’t leading by example?’ Good-government advocates questioned why state workers were being paid to attend an event designed to bolster an elected official’s credentials. ‘It’s a questionable use of state resources,’ said Dick Dadey, executive director of Citizens Union.”
