Now, American college students today KNOW what Clinton neo-liberalism is and that it is bad-----neo-liberals have not gotten much of the youth vote. Historically Black Colleges on the other hand openly educate students to global market neo-liberalism as good----progressive social capitalism----plantation Democracy. Consequently, Maryland has Young Democratic organizations filling with raging Clinton global neo-liberals.
IT IS THE YOUTH THAT CLINTON NEO-LIBERALS NEED TO INDOCTRINATE AND MAKE FEEL THAT THESE INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC ZONES AND GLOBAL CORPORATE TRIBUNAL RULE IS GREAT----AND THAT THE US CONSTITUTION AND PROGRESSIVE EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL IS OLD-SCHOOL AND BAD.
As the baby boomers die no the voice of progressivism and real political history weakens so it is vital that US universities REINSTATE PROGRESSIVE VOICE AND NOT GLOBAL TOTALITARIAN VOICE.
I read a list of Clinton Initiative universities in the US to see Baltimore's MICA and Towson on this list. I will speak this week on education and start with higher education and its corporate capture as the tool to silence Democratic principals and progressivism that has been a US political platform for centuries.
Clinton has had holds in US universities especially Historically Black Colleges and US public universities that have been made Ivy League and corporate product mills. University of Maryland College Park has been trying for a few decades to become one of these corporate public universities and Erhlich/O'Malley has worked hard to make it the most global corporate possible. It is the silence of our public universities that allows this global capture and dismantling of our sovereign nation and rights as citizens happen without the American people knowing what is happening. European universities are now under attack as Clinton Initiative is allowed to connect to some of Europe's finest public universities----but it is because they have remained free that Europeans are fighting and repelling neo-liberalism.
IT IS CRITICAL TO SEND CLINTON INITIATIVE PACKING-----THE FIRST STEP TO REVERSING THIS GLOBAL HOLD IS TAKING BACK OUR PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES.

- Below you see Pete Peterson---famous for spending his entire life working to end Social Security and all of our public trusts and becoming a billionaire during the massive financial frauds of last decade-----speaking about the national debt caused from massive corporate fraud against our US Treasury. Clinton set the stage for this looting-----it was a Perestroika of US public wealth planned and organized by Clinton neo-liberals and Bush neo-cons and now Clinton has a solution for that tens of trillions of dollars in debt by corporate fraud-----Remember, Democratic voters elected Obama because they wanted to be rid of Clinton neo-liberalism----we just didn't know Obama was lying and was in fact a Clinton neo-liberal too. So, Democratic voters had no choice in these national elections-----a Clinton neo-liberal vs a Clinton neo-liberal.

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Philanthropist Pete Peterson spoke to some of the one-thousand college students from 75 countries attending the Clinton Global Initiative University conference at Washington University on Saturday.
“We have too many lobbyists representing today and today’s special interests, but we don’t have a special interest for the future,” Peterson said.
Peterson helped organize the “Up to Us” competition at CGIU, with a $10,000 prize going to the team with the best action plan on tackling the nation’s debt crisis.
The University of Virginia’s entry won. To learn more, click here.
Former President Bill Clinton told the gathering, “You don’t have to be a Nobel Prize winning economist to see this is a problem. And you have the most to gain by finding the most-intelligent way to deal with it.”
Clinton went on to say, “Many in my political party say ‘Why do you care about the debt now?’ The reason is: as soon as the economy grows, and growth takes hold, more private-sector borrowing will occur, there’ll be more competition for money, and interest rates will rise.”
U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) spoke at one of Saturday’s sessions. She encouraged participants to dream as big as they can.
The conference wraps-up, Sunday, with a community service project at Gateway STEM High School.
The Teacher's Union leader----Randy Weingarten has been on board with the Clinton Initiative and global corporate rule from the beginning as has Trumka et al of US national labor leaders. It is part of the International Labor structure to be part of this expanding global initiative. This is why Americans do not know what Clinton neo-liberal policies are doing----what the goals are----and why union members are being killed with all of the labor gains for a century------THESE NATIONAL LABOR UNION LEADERS ARE TIED TO THE CLINTON INITIATIVE.
It is why your pensions have been allowed to be used as fodder----why unions supported a Republican health policy to end strong union health care plans and send union members to a Medicaid for All level of care. UNION LEADERS WORK FOR THE CLINTON INITIATIVE----AND THE CLINTON INITIATIVE IS INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC ZONES THAT ENSLAVE WORKERS AND KILL THE ENVIRONMENT.

· "Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers, spoke to us today at #CGIAmerica about social entrepreneurship and making positive change. This particular bit of advice stood out to me: 'Germs of ideas become gems of ideas and then become real.'
Making a difference is a marathon, not a sprint. Don't lose sight of the long-term, and your idea truly will change the world. Thanks for following along!" - Hannah
For those not knowing what Randi Weingarten is promoting with her comment on 'social entrepreneurship'----she is promoting the dismantling of the public sector with private non-profits----
As you see below city government is being taken as are state government and it is critical for Clinton neo-liberals and Bush neo-cons to keep hold of Governor/Mayor executive positions because that is where power has been centralized----on purpose. Baltimore's mayor has complete control of all public policy and that mayor works exclusively for Hopkins and Baltimore Development. When a national meeting of mayors elects Rawlings-Blake as head of the organization----as did the governor's association with Maryland's O'Malley-----and three decades ago Maryland's Spiro Agnew was not even allowed to run as Vice President on the Democratic ticket because of the level of fraud and corruption in Maryland----you see the problem. This means that the pols running and being elected to mayor offices are all tied to this Clinton Initiative International Economic Zone policy. Rawlings-Blake is about the most corrupt pol I have ever seen and she allows billions of dollars in revenue be stolen from Hopkins and Baltimore Development as has earlier mayors in Baltimore----so having her elected head of a group of mayors shows how leaders across the nation are as corrupt. Raise your hand if you know that people don't riot when public policy is working!
ANYONE CONNECTED TO A CLINTON INITIATIVE EVENT----OR PROGRAM YOU KNOW IS NOT A PERSON FOR WHOM TO VOTE. YOU ARE COMPLICIT IF YOU GIVE THESE INSTITUTIONS LEGITIMACY.
If you look, many of the farm team pols in the Democratic primary will be connected to these Clinton Initiative Institutions and increasingly they are connected to corporatized universities.

Baltimore mayor to head national organization of mayors
Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to be president of U.S. Conference of Mayors Published 5:53 PM EDT Jun 18, 2015
t BALTIMORE --The nation's mayors will gather this weekend in San Francisco for the United States Conference of Mayors.
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who is a vice president of the organization, will be among those attending, but this time, she'll attend with a new distinction and major firsts.
Rawlings-Blake gained worldwide exposure after the riots in Baltimore in April. Some have criticized her for clashes between the community and police. Despite that, this weekend, her work as mayor reaches new heights.
"I will use this position to improve the condition for people in Baltimore," Rawlings-Blake said.
She will be the first mayor of Baltimore and first African-American woman to become the president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
"There could not be a more perfect time for me to have this position when I can shine a spotlight on the needs of our city than now. I'll have a national megaphone," Rawlings-Blake said.
Rawlings-Blake spoke about what resources the organization and the position provide to the city.
"I'll be relentless in my efforts to advocate for what's important for Baltimore. We know that we need more help from federal government. We know that we need there to be changes in policy at HUD so we can get more investments in neighborhoods where we need them most," Rawlings-Blake said.
This isn't the first national position the mayor has held. She's been elected as secretary of the Democratic National Committee. She said holding these high profile leadership positions puts her in a stronger place to negotiate with businesses and foundations for economic growth and more.
"It's different when that call comes from an individual mayor from a city, than when that call comes from the president of the organization that represents all the mayors across the country," Rawlings-Blake said.
Rawlings-Blake will be sworn in on Monday.
WE DO NOT WANT CLINTON BUILDING LEADERSHIP FOR THE FUTURE---STOP ALLOWING HIM THE VEHICLES!
When we allow Clinton neo-liberalism be our foreign voice we are going to see foreign leadership trained in that neo-liberal economic policy. They become the voice that the Clinton Initiative/Foundation funds to travel as ambassadors.
The same is now happening in the US as Clinton Initiative-----once traveling in developing nations----comes to the US because-----the US is to be taken to a developing nation status with TPP and global corporate tribunal rule.
THIS IS WHY YOU DO NOT HEAR DIALOG AND DISSENT ON AMERICAN COLLEGE CAMPUSES----STUDENTS ARE MADE TO FEEL TO GET AHEAD AND BECOME EMPLOYED----THEY NEED THIS PATHWAY.
So, when a strong private art institute like MICA----Maryland Institute College for the Arts----is first taken over by Johns Hopkins because of lack of funding----and then has the Clinton Initiative tied to it----we have artists promoting this global agenda----and the politics around it. So----when a MICA student tells me----WE ARE ALL LIBERTARIANS NOW-----I hear the Hopkins/Clinton political platform being built through art and students.
The first thing any REAL progressive labor and justice pol would do as Mayor----free these universities from corporate control and funding-----MICA and Peabody need to be free of Johns Hopkins----as most people connected to these institutions wanted from the beginning. Today, executives have been placed that support Hopkins and neo-liberalism.
FASCISM ALWAYS TAKES UNIVERSITIES AND ART FIRST AS A TOOL TO EXPAND CONTROL TO YOUNGER GENERATIONS----STOP ALLOWING THEM TO DO THIS.
Building on the successful model of the Clinton Global Initiative, President Clinton launched the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) in 2007 to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world.
Each year, CGI U hosts a meeting where students, university representatives, topic experts, and celebrities come together to discuss and develop innovative solutions to pressing global challenges. Students create their own Commitments to Action that address issues on campus, in local communities, or around the world. Since 2008, students have made more than 5,500 commitments, and nearly $2 million in funding has been awarded to these commitment-makers through CGI U.
CREATING THE MASSIVE DEBT WITH LOOTING AND FRAUD AND CRIPPLED INNER CITIES---AND THEN PRETENDING TO CORRECT IT WITH VOLUNTEER ACTIONS.
THESE ARE THE STUDENTS THAT WILL BE FUNDED TO RUN FOR LOCAL OFFICES AS DEMOCRATS-----IT IS THE FARM TEAM. MOST STUDENTS KNOW NEO-LIBERALISM IS BAD BUT FEEL IT MUST BE EMBRACED TO ADVANCE PROFESSIONALLY.
A REAL progressive labor and justice pol would make domestic markets rule and have these students as central in building these local businesses. In cities like Baltimore, these Clinton groups come into our poor communities as volunteers taking the development jobs that should go to the poor in those communities. These students want to help----yet they replace the people needing to earn money to survive. Neo-liberalism is not about progressive actions---it is about replacing the structure of public sector with corporate funded non-profits. This is the 'corporations just want to take care of people' propaganda. Remember, there is 35-50% unemployment in these cities having large groups of volunteers brought with billions of dollars in public revenue looted by the Development corporations bringing them there that could be funding public sector jobs doing what these volunteers are doing. IT CREATES THIS CYCLE OF POVERTY.
ABOUT THE MEETING President Clinton and Chelsea Clinton hosted the eighth annual CGI U meeting from March 6-8, 2015 at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. The meeting brought together more than 1,000 innovative student leaders to make Commitments to Action in CGI U's five focus areas: Education, Environment and Climate Change, Peace and Human Rights, Poverty Alleviation, and Public Health. Through the CGI University Network, The Resolution Project, and other opportunities, more than $900,000 was provided to select CGI U 2015 students to help them turn their ideas into action. Through the CGI U 2015 Commitments Challenge, student teams raised an additional $25,000 for their work.
Student attendees had the opportunity to attend plenary sessions, working sessions, and other special events covering topics across CGI U's five focus areas and allowing them to network with their peers, build skills, and identify potential partnerships. University representatives, topic experts, and celebrities joined students at CGI U to help them gain the skills and knowledge needed to take action on their commitments.
During the last day of the meeting, attendees participated in a Day of Action in the local community with the Miami Children's Initiative. To kick off the day, Chelsea Clinton and President Clinton were joined by Cecilia Gutierrez, President and CEO of the Miami Children's Initiative, and Shane Battier, NBA Champion with the Miami Heat and Founder of The Battier Take Charge Foundation.
The CGI U 2015 agenda is posted here, and includes session overviews and speaker biographies. You may also browse the agendas from the 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, and 2009 meetings to learn more about the CGI U meeting and previous program participants.
Bernie Sanders is an establishment pol and I support him because he represents a social capitalism platform----not that I am blind to his maybe being another progressive poser! The importance of this Presidential election is not that a REAL social Democrat get elected----it is the awakening of the 80% of progressive labor and justice in the Democratic Party. So, be energized but focus on local politics and building the progressive labor and justice in all Democratic primaries. As you see the numbers of students behind Bernie's social capitalism is great while behind the scenes----Clinton Initiative is working the students to build his global international economic zone policy.
It is very important who controls national politics because as you see with Clinton----they have all the money and power to move young people wanting careers to their policies. So, a REAL progressive would make dismantling the corporate structure on universities a priority. As Bernie states----he wants totally free university----all 4 years----with Federal funding-----which will move away from Clinton/Obama defunding of state universities to starve them into corporate control.
CLINTON NEO-LIBERALISM WILL MEAN CORPORATE UNIVERSITIES PUSHING THE NEO-LIBERAL GLOBAL POLICIES----VS BERNIE SANDERS SOCIAL CAPITALISM THAT HAS EQUAL PROTECTION AND OPPORTUNITY AT ALL LEVELS WITH PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
Think of this bully pulpit Clinton is creating when he takes this global Clinton Initiative to university campuses around the world to recruit students to his policies. He also extends that progressive posing----
COME TO THE INNER CITIES TO VOLUNTEER TO REBUILD WHAT CLINTON DESTROYED WITH GLOBAL MARKET ECONOMICS, DEREGULATION, AND SYSTEMIC FRAUD AND LOOTING OF GOVERNMENT TREASURIES!

Why Bernie Sanders excites students and young voters
By Brent Budowsky, columnist, The Hill
Getty One of my major observations about the 2016 presidential campaign is that students and young people generally are becoming increasingly engaged politically and bringing their hopes and dreams for themselves and for America to the center of the national political arena through direct action and communication and organizing through the global explosion of social media.
This is great news for America, and no presidential candidate has done more to inspire this outpouring of excitement from young people than the oldest presidential candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). In my recent piece for The Hill, I applauded Sanders's proposal for free public college education and how he intends to finance his program through a transaction tax on Wall Street trades.
Nothing would do more to empower the American economy and better realize the American Dream than giving every young person the opportunity for greater learning, knowledge and economic opportunity than a college education that does not impose financial hardship on the moms and dads, and sons and daughters, of the nation.
And considering that those of us who belong to older generations are leaving our young people with mountains of federal debt, nothing would be more just and fair than financing a free college education by asking older generations who trade on Wall Street to follow President Kennedy's dictum and ask what they can do for our country.Similarly, I recently wrote in The New York Observer that I predict that Sanders will shine in the presidential debates, and that when voters compare the debates of both parties, the Democratic candidates will shine in the eyes of voters compared to Republicans!
Sanders excites students and young people not only because he brilliantly calls for a free public college education. He excites students and young people because he is a candidate of values, principles and ideas, which is what politics should be about. I call to your attention the wonderful website studentsforberniesanders.com, to follow the diversity of issues that these engaged young patriotic Americans believe in and work for.
Sanders offers what young people — and most Americans — want in political leaders. He offers authenticity and ideas; a politics of conviction and values that soars above the petty cash of political propaganda and political spin.
Sanders is not alone. When the summer days begin to end and the back-to-school days begin, there will be passionate discussions and debates throughout the high schools, colleges and universities of the nation.
There will be Sanders students spreading the message and organizing for progress. There will be young people supporting Hillary Clinton, especially young women who dream of electing the first woman president. There will be young libertarians organizing for Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who led the fight in the Senate for more privacy and less abusive surveillance under the Patriot Act, a cause Sanders shares. There will be young people supporting many candidates, engaging in exciting debates for the candidate of their choice, organizing to campaign for the candidate they believe in, spreading their competing messages and hopes and dreams that can turn any student with a keyboard and a dream into the equivalent of a nationally syndicated columnist through the wonders of social media.
I think this is wonderful for America, and for those who care about the future of the nation that will be determined in the presidential campaign of 2016, don't spend all of your time watching pundits dispense insider talk on cable news, or mainstream political media insiders telling the world what political gossip they heard at their latest insider lunch.
Rather, took to the high schools and campuses, look to the idealism of the young people who want to turn their great aspirations into the next American century, and look to the social media that gives them a platform to promote progress that has the power to change the world.
Praise the Lord for Bernie Sanders and all of the young people he and other candidates inspire, who ask what they can do for their country, and do it!
IF THERE IS NO PUBLIC SECTOR OR PUBLIC JUSTICE----IF RULE OF LAW AND EQUAL PROTECTION IS SUSPENDED---THERE IS NO NEED FOR CIVIL AND JUSTICE LAWYERS---YOU CANNOT GET A JOB AND THAT IS THE WAY GLOBAL POLS WANT IT!
Another aspect of university control by global pols like Clinton neo-liberals and Bush neo-cons is very important-----OUR LAW SCHOOLS. I have spoken before of the movement away from civil law and public justice law and now most law students are following an international or corporate law path. I attended a progressive law forum given at this law campus and almost no students stopped in.
Maryland Bar Association is behind all of the captured public justice system in the state. Most Maryland pols passing these corporate policies are lawyers. Since Maryland has dismantled almost all of state and city public agencies and pathways to public justice------there is not much need for students in Maryland to get a degree in public justice or civil justice law. That is why Maryland has appointed law university heads directed to make these law schools focused almost exclusively on international law. Remember, Ivy League universities like Harvard do not even recognize US Constitutional law----it has these few decades acted as if Trans Pacific Trade Pact and global corporate tribunal courts have already been in place. When Obama ran as a Constitutional lawyer----they didn't tell us that------WHICH CONSTITUTION? OH, THE GLOBAL CORPORATE TRIBUNAL CONSTITUTION!
Neo-cons from Erhlich to neo-liberals like O'Malley have spent their time restructuring law schools in Maryland to being corporate just as they have all other public universities. Even our local University of Baltimore Law School is moving away from local public justice and marching into that global law world!
A REAL PROGRESSIVE LABOR AND JUSTICE WOULD MAKE THIS APPARENT AND BE SURE THAT PUBLIC JUSTICE, OPEN PUBLIC POLICY DEBATE ON CAMPUS AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC WERE WELL-FUNDED.
Maryland law schools DO NOT offer that broad public policy debate that thrived in the progressive 1960s----in fact, it hosts primary election debates that exclude REAL progressive candidates in a Democratic race.

International & Comparative Law
With each new technological advance, the world becomes both smaller and more complex. The rapid increase in global economic integration, inter-governmental cooperation, and the frequency and complexity of international business transactions have brought about a profusion of new legal challenges. International human rights problems have highlighted a need for legal experts who have an understanding of other countries' cultures, as well as their legal systems. These are but a few of the reasons feeding the demand for more and better-trained attorneys with a proficiency in international and comparative law.
The School of Law provides a rich variety of foreign study opportunities, proximity to a global capital, and an international faculty prepares students to succeed in the global practice of law. With the foundation provided by the curriculum and the varied opportunities for foreign legal experience, our alumni are pursuing careers across nearly the full breadth of substantive international legal fields, both in the United States and abroad.
Career Pathways in International Law
The notion that there are no job opportunities in international law is as much a fallacy as the now discredited idea that international law is not really law. Lawyers ignore international law at their peril, for it permeates every conceivable area of legal practice, and offers diverse and interesting career pathways for the law school graduate.
Opportunities in international law are not limited to inter-governmental organizations and high-powered multi-national law firms serving multi-national companies: opportunities can be found in many government departments and agencies, a host of international and domestic non-profit organizations and a range of law firms, practicing in areas from human rights to securities.
This guide will provide information and resources to help aspiring international legal practitioners see the opportunities which exist and find ways to connect with those opportunities.
If you don't recognize this unemployment as a purging of what is US common law and Constitutional law you are not educating on these issues. We are having rulings in Maryland that do not even allow legal claims around public justice and civil rights to make it to court. So, this is a strangling of what global pols think it old school and what young students are being taught is old school-----OUR US CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS.
Any REAL progressive labor and justice would make his/her first day in office about creating a hiring committee that searches and brings every one of those unemployed law students and grads to Baltimore to be central in rebuilding Rule of Law and public justice in Baltimore. Having that structure in Baltimore will enable this to expand across Maryland. It will stop allowing the rich in Maryland to use Baltimore as ground zero for all of their fraud and corruption schemes as is true today. As important, it gives students a reason to major in civil and justice law-----the government is going to hire them and corporations being held to Rule of Law will need them in their law departments again. Since Reagan/Clinton the purging of all oversight and accountability has killed the need to have lawyers that make sure corporations follow Federal law.
YOU WON'T HEAR THE CLINTON INITIATIVE TALK ABOUT THE NEED TO RECOVER TENS OF TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN WALL STREET FRAUD OR CLOSING DOWN WALL STREET BANKS----HE WORKS FOR THEM.
Corporations are hiring global law grads now and leaving US law grads to wither on the vine because US students are still steeped in Rule of Law and US Constitutional rights and US corporations ignore all of this and need lawyers from third world nations that do not know what US Rule of Law is about.

Unemployment Among Recent Law Graduates Is as Bad as It's Ever Been
By Katherine Mangan
The employment rate for recent law-school graduates has fallen to its lowest level since 1994, according to figures released on Thursday by the National Association for Law Placement. Only 85.6 percent of 2011 graduates whose employment status was known had jobs nine months after leaving law school.
That rate, which has declined every year since 2008, was two percentage points below the previous year's employment level. The figure is based on data submitted by schools and includes graduates working part time and in jobs that don't require a law degree. (Recently, more than a dozen law schools have been sued and 20 more threatened with legal action over their allegedly inflated job-placement rates.)
According to a report from the association, only 65.4 percent of the 2011 graduates who reported their employment status were working in positions for which they had to pass a bar examination. More than nine percentage points below the 2008 rate, that proportion is the lowest the association has ever measured.
"For members of the Class of 2011, caught as they were in the worst of the recession, entering law school in the fall of 2008 just as Lehman Brothers collapsed ... the entry-level job market can only be described as brutal," the association's executive director, James G. Leipold, said in a written statement.
"When this class took their LSAT's and applied for law school, there were no signs that the legal economic boom was showing any signs of slowing," he said, "and yet by the time they graduated, they faced what was arguably the worst entry-level legal-employment market in more than 30 years."
Fewer than half of the employed graduates were in private practice, a share that has also been steadily declining.
The only glimmer of good news in the report was Mr. Leipold's suggestion that the job market may have bottomed out and might begin creeping up over the next few years.
The shrinking job market and declining applications have prompted some law schools to cut their incoming class sizes, while others have moved ahead with plans to expand.
