About Me

My namesake... http://youtu.be/GgXzWhexJh0 ... If I were asked to recommend only one political / history book it would be this one... http://www.amazon.com/Treason-America-Anton-Chaitkin/dp/0943235006 ... Treason in America: from Aaron Burr to Averell Harriman, by Anton Chaitkin. I do NOT endorse all of the views by Chaitkin external to this book, nor all of his actions, nor all of his associations, but I DO highly recommend this book. It is one every US citizen and everyone interested in its history should read. It it well written, meticulously sourced, and it is eye-opening -- even for those who consider themselves already knowledgeable. If you have not read it before, you need to read it, it is need-to-know information, and what it has to say is not going to be found in many places, if anywhere, else. That is my tip for whoever is passing by.

As dark and ugly as it is now,

and it is plenty dark and ugly (especially after what we just saw in NV, following the same script in too many other places), this election has given me a lot of new hope. 1) I'm surprised at how many people support what Bernie stands for, and 2) the fact that the Millennials will be the future, and they seem to learn quickly and have good bullshit radar. And 3) we now know that we can fight big money and win.

I feel very good about Bernie's chances of winning this election, oddly enough, but I feel even more positive about the return of the New Deal 2.0 in the not to distant future as you noted. I guess it's like seeing light at the end of the tunnel, or seeing a away out. I see it now. That's really all I need to get in gear for it.

If it comes to another 1968-syle showdown, which I was part of then too, I'm ready for it. I'm 66, and I have very little left to lose after 4 decades of rip-offs, so I don't give a fuck. My people came here 400 years ago, not 5 minutes ago like too many of our so-called "leaders", and I'll be damned if I'll watch what they built and sacrificed so much for go down the toilet for the benefit of this handful of self-entitled globe-raping grifter-grafters.

There are lots of us of a like mind and demographic, which I'm glad to see here too.

The thing to know and keep in mind is, the PTB have the money which buys power, but we have the NUMBERS. A few cannot hold down the many unless the many allow it. All we have to do is stand up in a big way, and it's game over.

HRC cannot be referred to as "winning" any longer.

As in, the super delegates have to choose her because she is "winning".

This is bullshit, and it's a few straws too many. She is the official CHEATER now, and that deserves no recognition whatsoever.

Especially in light of the fact that by all rights, she shouldn't even be allowed to run while under FBI investigation.

Bernie is the presumptive winner now, and if it doesn't turn out that way, it's a stolen election. Period.

I'm really sad to hear this, CoffeeCat. I'm sad that this happened to you, and Dragonfli, and others, and I'm sad that we have sunk this low in this country. I remember when we used to be mostly honorable people back in the day.

I'm really sick and tired of sharks. It's time to drain the swamp and get rid of them, whatever it takes. People who do this kind of thing, no matter how great they think they are, completely disgust me. They are lower than pond scum.

"I absolutely had permission" is a bald-faced lie too.

More bullshit:

Nothing was marked classified. (That's 100% irrelevant, as she knows.)

No intent to mishandle records. (Intent doesn't enter into it, as she knows.)

Others did it too. (All the State Dept.'s communications for 4 years on a private DIY server does not equal a few emails on a commercial server, as she knows.)


Everything she has said about this, including that it's a right-wing smear, she has known full well was a total LIE. Nothing she says can be relied upon at all.

She is a lawyer. So is Bill Clinton. So is Obama. They all know that her statements on this are nonsense.

This is a deliberate attempt by all involved to CON the voters of America into electing her under FALSE PRETENSES.

That attempt alone, even if nothing else was wrong, disqualifies her and shreds their credibility and integrity (what's left of it).

So far, Obama is the least guilty one in this. But he knew that that "intent" remark he made in her defense was bullshit, and deliberately misleading the public. Not cool.

She had millions in Foundation/State graft to hide too.

It wasn't just thwarting FOIA. (And it isn't the first time the Clinton's have seen to it that the law was broken to foil FOIA; google Sandy Berger.)

There were at least three more reasons. One, to hide Bill's involvement in helping her do her work as SoS, which may have been extensive and could be why having her unsecured and unauthorized Blackberry was so important to her. Two, to hide her own private sources like Blumenthal, possibly amounting to running a private State Dept. behind Obama's back. The extent of the last two points are not certain, but this fourth one is and it was the big one...

She was confident the private server meant that no one would ever find out about the way both Clintons dovetailed State Dept. actions with Foundation donations (for payoffs and laundering) to facilitate some very big deals around the world, between combinations of: foreign governments, our government, donors, and their inner circle of friends.

(If it weren't for a fluke hacker getting into her secret aide Blumenthal's email, all of this would've remained hidden. And the hacker found Blumenthal, because as a Romanian he was following a Romanian woman pol who had a longtime crush on Colin Powell, who led to Petraeus, Bush and others, and through one of them to Blumenthal, then HRC.)

So the 6-figure speeches weren't the only source of millions for the Clintons.

And it wasn't done once, it was done a lot. It's part of the FBI investigation, and RICO has been brought up. If the FBI doesn't touch it, Congress will.

And Hillary's snottiness to Grassley a few weeks back probably didn't do her any good, but that's who she is.

This investigation is not partisan bullshit. It's big, ugly, and serious.

If she gets elected, there's no way she doesn't get impeached. This is all we will hear about until then and this is all that will get done. And next cycle, it will be a big handicap to run against.

It's a sucker bet risk, and the Dem party is taking it.

The point: this equals an EPIC FAIL in her last job as SoS.

It seems to get lost in the shuffle.

She's running for a big promotion. But this is how she handled her last job.

The fact that the FBI is even involved at all, and the fact that two IGs had to make a referral TO the FBI... that says all we need to know about her job performance.

It's one thing to have no experience (like Trump), it's another thing to have experience at completely bungling the job. She screwed up on two levels: on the military actions taken because she pushed them; and on this more bureaucratic national security whopping screw up of records for her entire 4 years as SoS.

WTH is competent about that? That's the point about this investigation. It's an "F" on her report card. It's an objective evaluation of job failure. And that's regardless of whether she's indicted or not.

And that's why she should not be running IN ADDITION TO the fact that no one under the legal jeopardy of an FBI investigation should be running either.

I thought Shrub was the most ludicrous Presidential candidate we could possibly have. But this tops that by far. This is even more ridiculous than Trump as a candidate. At least he hasn't ALREADY FAILED this badly.

And if that still isn't enough, add being Kissinger's protege. And she has the colossal nerve to use the word "dangerous" as criticism in her speeches! WTF, Dem party! This is nonsense. This is "through the looking glass" all the way. smh

Lol! Loveya West Virginia! They took HRC to the woodshed.

West Virginia You made my day, and my week!

It's a great thing for these establishment-type corruption puppeteers, to be shown once in a while that although most of the Party is cowed into submission by their "Hit List" of carrots and sticks -- meaning bribes and threats -- that...

SOME. PEOPLE. WILL. NOT. DANCE. TO. THEIR. TUNE.

She can sit up on Olympus all she wants and pull levers of power and snap her fingers for gum and talk about not needing their votes, but NEVERTHELESS, the voters of West Virginia had their say and

TOLD HER OFF!!! Good for them! That was a thing of beauty!

And Kentucky is watching, and waiting for its own chance to spit in her eye!

Not forgetting you Oregon, we know you're ready to be counted!


Bernie people are so cool.

I think Hillary is nothing but a front for Kissinger.

And I'm really alarmed that Obama has bought into that too, and has chosen to make a public statement of that fact via the honoring of Kissinger done yesterday. That tells me that the top of the establishment in DC, both Repub and Dem, is Kissinger. Unelected Kissinger, please note.

That makes Hillary much scarier than Trump, Trump is not an insider, at least not yet.

As to the two parties, they may have different platforms and different ideologies but they are run by the same establishment. The Repubs spend for a while on wars or have a crash and run up a bill, and then the Dems cut services and pay for it while telling us to lower expectations. Rinse, repeat.

The establishment is like a pyramid, the higher you go up, the more unified it becomes.

Meanwhile, most people are too self-propagandized to defend themselves from it. And those of us who know better are unable to benefit from being right, because we get screwed over along with everyone else by the choices of the stupid or corrupt among us.

I know, right? It's like Neocon Central.

on GDP lately:


Honoring Kissinger. Having him for a mentor. Vacationing with that genocidal war-criminal asshole for years too.

Nancy Reagan's great work on AIDS. And the lovely poison Prison Blood Scandal.

"Sharing Bush donors' values". Cruz donors. "Megachurch Moms"

Yay big banks, and millions for secret speeches to the real base.

Lobbyist Superdelegates.

Cute hug pictures with Shrub. And Kissinger. And Trump.

Incrementalism. No we can't.

Privately run State Dept. with no transparency and no steenkin' FOIA.

"Too big to jail". Panderers-R-Us.

The Clinton Hit List.


There's nothing like a good whiplash U-turn to the right.

What's next, I wonder? I think Jebby for her VP would make it all just perfect.

Like the banks, "fraud as a business model".

We've got institutionalized fraud everywhere we look, but there's nothing to worry about. It's all a nothingburger. It's a lot like that movie, "Alien", with the mama alien and all the lesser ones running around...

And that Dem President honoring Kissinger thing, that didn't indicate anything either. I'm sure the next war we're in will have nothing to do with it... him... them.

Candidates above the law? Not a problem. We Dems have it all under control, so we're told. Pay-to-play in the State Department? I can't hear you. Didn't they used to call that graft in the olden days?

Voting irregularities? That's just an artful smear.

But we're out there "fighting for YOU" every day! So it's all good!!!!!

Yay!

What the everlasting fuck!!!

Did this even make national news today? If it did, I didn't see it.

Obama is DONE in my book. This is appalling, and there was absolutely no need to do this!

By Nixon's released documents it is now absolutely known that there is zero question that he and Kissinger scuttled a Viet Nam peace agreement that LBJ had already arranged, so that Nixon could get himself elected in 1968. Everybody who served in VN between 1968 and end of it DID NOT HAVE TO.

That includes my late husband who died of the aftermath of that war at the age of 57, after suffering with illnesses and surgeries beyond description since he was 33.

Kissinger is the most despicable of traitors, literally, and by doing this, Obama is an accessory after the fact. I hope they all go to a "special place in hell".

Before this, I was very disappointed in Obama. Now I fucking hate him. All of these fuckers in the "leadership" today disgust me. I have no words to even say what I think, none are adequate.

This tells me EXACTLY who the current leaders of this party are. Fear over the other guy is fucking Hillaryous. This bunch are in a whole different league.

Obama may as well posthumously honor Hitler next. That's the equivalent of what he has just done.
