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.

Because people never talk, and

don't have influence. It's just a diagram in a civics book.

Let's put it this way, if I was in her shoes, I sure as hell would not be poking Chuck Grassley right now. But she has such great judgment, I'm sure she knows what she's doing.

"It's the server, stupid" Dems need to look into this!

The OP video is 40 minutes. I strongly suggest that everyone put on their objective brain and listen to it. The guy is a partisan jerk, yes, but he knows the law and he has good inside sources. He's talking facts here, not opinions.

I've been reading up on this for the past week, and I can tell you that everything he's saying here is well-documented by other very reliable sources. (All I have is a messy Notepad filled with links, not in any shape to post an OP from; I may or may not be about to do that later.) Meanwhile though...

This is NOT a nothingburger. Bernie needs to get up to speed on this too, asap. Clinton is spinning a load of lies about this just like she does everything else.

It is not about the emails themselves, or over-classification, or others did it too -- all of that is not only irrelevant but wrong as well. She is lying to us again, fellow Dems, bigtime. She's on track to let this blow up in our faces.

It's bad, and it isn't going away, and it's going to massively affect Dems in this election.

I see it still said here that Bernie hasn't been vetted, no HRC hasn't been vetted about THIS, because Bernie hasn't brought it up. But Trump and other Repubs have already stated on the record that THEY WILL USE THIS.

All of us, including Bernie, and including me until last week, have ignored this up to now because the Repubs have "cried wolf" so many times before. But this time, this is real.

There is a lot to read up on and wrap our heads around about this, and I strongly recommend that Dems who haven't been paying attention to it, get on it right away.

This will BLINDSIDE us if we don't. This video is a good place to start. I also recommend the Wikipedia article on it as an overview, which has a ton of footnote links...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillary_Clinton_email_controversy#Email_server

SETTING UP THE SERVER WAS AN ILLEGAL ACT, it's not about the emails, and no other Secretary of State ever did this! Nobody. She never used her government email account AT ALL, and it was purely to evade FOIA and to hide pay-to-play with the Clinton Foundation -- 13 separate instances of it, and counting.

This will blow up on us, Dems. 100% guaranteed. She will either be indicted or the court of public opinion will REJECT her, and elect a Repub.

The Establishment is corrupt and its days are numbered.

The icons have fallen. People have seen behind Oz's curtain and it isn't pretty, and they aren't amused.

The Dem party will have to clean up its act significantly, or it will find itself unable to elect anybody anymore.

Pay to play is not acceptable. Selling our law to lobbyists is not acceptable. It's called treason.

The only reason it hasn't been prosecuted is both sides are doing it. Well then, we will have to elect new people with new values who aren't already sold out before they're elected, and that is just what has begun.

I think you're right, and I can prove it.

This is a TYT video from May 2011 which I had not seen until this week. I was appalled. Not only because Bill and Ryan were discussing cuts to Medicare, but because it was Bill Clinton doing it.



He was not in office at that time. WTH business was it of his to be discussing ANYTHING about policy? What right did he have to be negotiating with Paul Ryan over cuts to our programs?

I remarked in that thread, "So he's to be the shadow President. Well isn't that a milestone for women?" Clearly this "first woman President" selling point is a fraud. What a great feminist icon, when in reality Hillary would be, and was at that time, a mere front for Bill.

I had NOT thought about the 2-term limit though. That is actually a very interesting question, now that you mention it. This video shows us the sort of thing Bill has been doing. He has been conducting the nation's business surreptitiously using Hillary as a screen. It is not at all unreasonable to expect that he will keep on doing in the future what he has already been doing in the past.

And that isn't the only indicator. Several writers on the email scandal are of the opinion that the private server was used so that Bill could have access to official documents, and have input into her role as Secretary of State. The Blackberry that Hillary was so adamant about having for herself and her staff, kept her in constant contact with her "coach" Bill and his staff.

The email hadn't made any sense to me until I thought about it this way. She had two motivations. One, to keep the Clinton Foundation pay-to-play transactions out of view at the State Department. And two, keeping Bill's participation out of State's view too.

I also have said here before, and I will say again, HRC's prior experience as Senator from New York and as Secretary of State are both offices that she probably would not have gotten if she had not been Bill Clinton's wife.

I don't believe Hillary Clinton has been doing any job on her own. Her own actions and choices have led to this being the most likely objective conclusion.

I think if the Republicans wanted to press this point about Bill's 3rd term, they might get some traction with it, given the video above. I think it's another potential liability, and worse, I think it's the truth of the matter.

It doesn't even need to be a stand-alone scandal, it fills in the gap between the two scandals that are already cooking.

This is my opinion on what the few facts we have now might mean all fitted together. Lots of pieces are not filled in yet, and so of course I could be wrong, but on the other hand I could be right. What all the pieces add up to is...

Hillary Clinton is a huge liability. She needs to withdraw before things get worse.

If anybody watched the videos at the link

I don't see how snark and snide jokes could be made of this. Whoever is in charge of elections there needs to be 1) fired; and 2) investigated. It's an outrage, what the voters of AZ had to put up with yesterday, those conditions are inhuman.

C'mon, he just misspoke.

Every once in a while, he screws up and tells the truth. So many lies to keep track of, anybody might do the same.

He misspoke here too. I just saw this, and it blows my mind. This proves that Hillary as President is just a front for Bill's third term. What a feminist milestone she's setting, right? She is such a fraud, and so is he. This is from May 2011...



Selling us out to the billionaires like they always do. ISN'T IT FUNNY HOW DEMS GET ALONG WITH REPUBS WHEN THEY WANT TO?

Now what was today's meme again, about a "legacy of Republican obstruction"???

Sure. And if you believe that one, they've got a million more lies to tell you.

Meanwhile, all these paid off liars are cozily joining together in getting rid of what's left of our safety net behind our backs. They make sure to do it in events like that whcih none of our class could afford to go to, that's where they're all safe and friendly with each other.

What we see is nothing but kabuki theater.

Bernie is telling us the truth about politics today, and standing up to it to change it. Of course they hate his guts. He's trying to end their gravy train, which comes out of the increased pay and quality of life stolen from the rest of us.

I don't think people are going to accept that.

I know I wouldn't. It smacks of 1968 and Hubert Humphrey.

If the party thinks they're going to get away with that, I think they're delusional. I'm sure there would be a concerted effort to target and defeat for re-election any Super who did that.

There wouldn't be a Dem left in Congress for 2020. State level too.

If that's the level of betrayal the party wants, they can have it... "scorched earth to the sea".

There's too much money on the table.

Details here:

http://www.nybooks.com/daily/2016/01/30/clinton-system-donor-machine-2016-election/

And it likely ties in to the email scandal, as the reason for not using the government server -- she didn't want the payoff system found out,

The smart move would have been, if you're going to take all that money then don't run for President. Just walk away and keep it. I'm not condoning it, just saying it would have been the common sense thing to do.

But Hillary just HAS TO be President too. Her ego won't allow her to not grab for that chance, being within grabbing distance. And so now, she has made it pretty much inevitable that she will get caught for all of this, dragging all of us in the public who have no choice but to depend on her, if nominated, and the Dem party and this election down with her. She doesn't seem the slightest bit concerned about the inescapable bind she would be putting us in (if selected), by insisting on being the nominee.

I don't see any way that this doesn't end in a scandal that makes Bill's previous ones look like just a little bad press. It's a train wreck coming. It isn't a matter of her being charged with a crime or not, the fact of what she and Bill have done is already out there in the public (the article above and others), there's no putting it back in Pandora's box. The ONLY question is when the train wreck hits. We don't have much time to jump off the train. Once she's chosen, we're screwed.

One or two articles today will be five next week, and ten the week after. Shall we take bets on how long it will take to go boom! while we wait for it to happen? Lawyers can't fix the political consquences of this. That will fall squarely on us.

Very definitely.

Scandal one:

Scandal two:
http://www.nybooks.com/daily/2016/01/30/clinton-system-donor-machine-2016-election/

Put them together and it spells TRAIN WRECK.

Agreed. Bernie and Hillary are nothing alike.

Their actual agendas are nothing alike. "Evolving" for the campaign doesn't count. Assuming Bernie voters will vote for Hillary is delusional. And btw.

Adding Super Delegates in now as if they can't change...

Talk of Hillary already being the nominee...

Saying that Bernie can't win...

Saying that Bernie should drop out...

Talk of unity...

IT IS ALL VOTER SUPPRESSION.

If is to discourage people who haven't voted yet from voting for Sanders.
