On the Hillary advisor who says Bernie needs to change his tone for there to be more debates

Here's an article on Hillary's campaign criticizing Bernie in January for an anti Wall Street ad that didn't mention Hillary. No mention that two of her advisor Joel Benenson's largest clients are Bank of America and J.P. Morgan Chase. They are 2 of the biggest TARP recipients and 2 of the 4 largest banks that Bernie regularly points out are responsible for originating 1/3 of the mortgages in the U.S. and 2/3 of credit card issuance. These are 2 of the too big to fail financial institutions that Bernie says should be broken up.

Other major clients of Benenson's firm and what they'd like to see Bernie tone down are McDonald's (minimum wage), Pfizer (U.S. pays the highest drug prices in the world, pending corporate inversion to exploit tax loopholes) and Wal-Mart (minimum wage, the Walton family owns as much wealth as the bottom 40%, they should pay their employees a living wage so they wouldn't have to rely on food stamps, Medicaid and subsidized housing to live, etc.).

<Just below the listing of Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase, Benensonís firm lists Clintonís campaign, the Obama campaign and top Democratic Party groups as clients. Those clients are listed under a section in which Benensonís firm says it works on ďadvising leaders who shape the world.Ē

During Clintonís unsuccessful 2008 campaign, she faced criticism for having Mark Penn as her top adviser, while his public relations firm represented tobacco, oil, pharmaceutical and gaming companies. His company also instructed clients on how to defeat union-organizing drives.>

There is a lot of syngergy between the Benenson Group's clients. When he goes after Bernie on behalf of Hillary's campaign, does he also get to bill Bank of America, J.P. Morgan, McDonald's, Pfizer and Wal-Mart for the same work?

7. Here's some helpful tips for Hillary's tone

As a sometimes vocal coach it seems to me that Hillary should try to unblock her throat chakra.

If you find yourself choking back your emotions, or nervously clearing your throat in social situations, it may be worth a look at your Throat Chakra energy center.

The Throat Chakra is located in the pit of the throat. Its color is blue-green and it relates to communication on all levels.

When the Throat Chakra is balanced, it brings clear communication and creative expression, from within our self and with others. An open throat chakra lets us express our truth and listen to our inner voice.

When the throat chakra is weak we may experience difficulty expressing ourselves. Symptoms of a weak or closed throat chakra can include fear of speaking, stuttering, secretiveness, excessive shyness and even lying.

10. Perhaps if Bernie were to endorse Hillary, she would be open to a debate in New York?

11. Hillary's campaign and her media surrogates have been trying to tell Bernie

OK, we will let you continue to run and take money from your supporters as long as you make it clear that you have no intention of winning and tell everybody to vote for Hillary, without conditions, in the general election. Your role now is to ratfuck your supporters by becoming part of Team Hillary.

9. So when is Hillary going to change her tone

Of course it's OK for her to be harsh?

13. I think he should mention Hillary's tenure on the Board of Wal-Mart

He talks about the wealth of the Waltons which has been built in large on the backs of their taxpayer subsidized workers. I think Hillary serving on the Wal-Mart Board while they were doing everything they could to keep unions out is a relevant issue to this campaign.
