Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Must Be Fired- Now!

Let's start with an obvious given- Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is the single worst Democratic National Committee Chairman ever. She is directly responsible for the devastating defeats of 2012 and 2014 (What? You say 2012 wasn't a defeat? Look down ticket dope.). She has supported Republicans, Republicans for goodness sake, against Democrats in her home state of Florida, and has sabotaged liberal and progressive Democrats at every turn in favor of corporatist Third Way/Blue Dog/DLC/New Democrat conservative refugees from the rapidly imploding Republican Party who are merely Democrats of convenience.

A less obvious given, but a given none the less, is that she is totally in the tank for Hillary. She makes barely a pretense of neutrality, her support is naked and blatant.

Oh yes, there's more. Read more about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Must Be Fired- Now!

The media hates Hillary Clinton

New poll showing Clinton beating everyone is reported as bad news for Hillary

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Hillary Clinton coasting to a crushing victory in a three-way race against Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, winning 45 percent of the vote, compared with 22 for Sanders and 18 for Biden.

And the good news for Clinton doesn't stop there.

Outing Hillary's Wall Street Lackeys: Tom Nides and Robert Hormats

From The Guardian, "Hilary Clinton aides' Wall Street links raise economic policy doubts."

I am putting the names in bold: Tom Nides and Robert Hormats.

The person expressing "angst" about Hormats and Nides influencing a possible Hillary Clinton presidency is a Neil Sroka, spokesman for "progressive advocacy group Democracy in America." [Where has Sroka been during President Wall Street Obama's reign?] Read more about Outing Hillary's Wall Street Lackeys: Tom Nides and Robert Hormats

Did teachers really endorse Hillary Clinton

Teachers Say No Freaking Way to AFT Endorsement of Hillary Clinton

Even though AFT's press release explained the process of how members were polled, including several town hall meetings, multiple surveys and a "you decide" website, the announcement of the endorsement erupted a firestorm of outrage from AFT teacher members nationwide on twitter.

Will We Ever Get Change if We Keep Electing People Who Represent Special Interests?

We can see the positioning and the messaging on the Democratic side beginning to take shape for the 2016 elections. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren with nods to Thomas Piketty and various economists have stepped forward to offer the themes of salvation for the middle class, moderating the extremes of inequality in American society, and doing something real about jobs and wages.

Clinton World seems to be responding, not yet with forthright statements from Hillary Clinton, but recently with articles by stalwarts of neoliberal Clintonism (and veterans of the Obama Administration) such as Larry Summers and Peter Orszag, expressing concerns about inequality and proposing measures to alleviate it, even including increased taxation on the wealthy.

HRC-Neutralizer of Left for Wall Street, Monsanto, NSA, etc.

Thread: 

Jon Queally in “Amid Populist Surge, Hillary Clinton to Wall Street's Rescue?” discusses a Tuesday NYT's article that suggests that Hillary Clinton is viewed as a “solution” by Wall Street in relation to all the unsettling populist calls for “stronger economic reforms and regulations.”

It seems that Hillary Clinton’s upcoming presidential nomination by many progressive/Dem cronies is viewed as a sure thing, a veritable cakewalk, a heralded “coronation” exercise. Read more about HRC-Neutralizer of Left for Wall Street, Monsanto, NSA, etc.

Bill & Hillary’s 6-Figure Speeches NOT for Personality!

Thread: 

Zaid Jilani for Al Jazeera America has written a very disturbing article entitled “The Clintons web of wealth/Where did Bill and Hillary get all their money?”

Hillary Clinton has been making noises lately that she knows what it is like to have money stress. That she and her husband were “dead broke” when they left the White House and they were forced to give six figure a piece speeches.

Obama, US, NATO Heart Al Qaeda in Syria (WTF?)

NATO ministers met in Brussels today, December 5th, to approve Turkey’s request for Patriot missiles and for foreign and US troops to be deployed to their border with Syria.

The US/NATO War-machine plows onward in the attempted illegitimate overthrow of Syria, much as it did with its successful illegitimate overthrow of Libya.

Turkey has offered geographical strategic assistance to the US- and NATO-backed so-called “rebels” trying to overthrow Assad’s Syrian regime. Turkey now offers itself as a flimsy fig-leaf for craven powerful western intervention into Syria. Read more about Obama, US, NATO Heart Al Qaeda in Syria (WTF?)

INTRO-Syria Loses InfoWar To Morally Unhinged US/Israel/NATO

Okay, my first selected title of this blog was a tad too long but let me repeat it here:

“Blood-Bathed Syria Loses Info War To Serial Deceit of Morally & Militarily Unhinged (But Murderous) US/Israel/NATO”

Fasten your seatbelt if there’s the remotest chance your mind and heart are open to reality re the latest amoral outrage going on in Syria. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Of WW III proportions. (I wish I were being hyperbolic.)

“We’ve seen this movie before,” one of the dozen or so HONEST journalists I have been reading in the past few days reminds. Read more about INTRO-Syria Loses InfoWar To Morally Unhinged US/Israel/NATO

US/NATO 'Take Out' Plan of All Pro-Palestinian Countries

Okay, let’s get to the heart of things which any even remotely-corporate media can’t begin to.

Soul-Dead President Walking (589 Obama-dumping days until 2012 election)

(589 Obama-dumping days left until 2012 election, Hugh's Obama's Scandals List)

Obama is a political gamesman. He lied his way into power.

Now he is determined to do and say anything to ensure a second term in 2012. That is his priority. His focus. His limited character.

Human needs and rights of others? Not so important. Read more about Soul-Dead President Walking (589 Obama-dumping days until 2012 election)

Don’t Turn Your Back on Hillary Clinton or How Ray McGovern Evoked Hypocrisy in Real Time

71-year old peace advocate Ray McGovern, wearing a Veterans for Peace T-shirt, stood in the audience with his back toward Hillary Clinton as she gave a speech at Washington University on February 15th. McGovern’s stance, what he calls “silent witness”, was a protest of Mrs. Clinton’s support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It was not long before McGovern was assaulted and dragged out of the audience by two security men. “So this is America!” McGovern declared. “This is America!” Read more about Don’t Turn Your Back on Hillary Clinton or How Ray McGovern Evoked Hypocrisy in Real Time

Being U.S. President is Never Having to Say You’re Sorry, Never Stopping a Madness You Didn’t Start & Inducing National Amnesia

John Grant has a wry, clear way of framing the moral vacuum that is America and its ferocious military status quo that steamrolls ever onward, contrary to all logic, justice and empathy.

Grant contends that the U.S.'s Middle East influence has profoundly waned, as opposed to Turkey’s and Iran’s, despite “hundreds of thousands of soldiers and billions of dollars of equipment and bases." “And a lot of face to save,” he adds. The 2003 U.S. Iraq invasion and occupation was what “boosted” Iran to strong regional influence he emphasizes.
