War Criminal Hillary, Bloomberg’s Choice for Running Mate

Teamed up with Hillary Clinton, a war in the Middle East and an authoritarian police state at home will be on track.

I figured as much. The moment Mike Bloomberg announced his intention to spend part of his billions—like Trump before him—to gain the presidency, I thought: this is the perfect opening for Hillary Clinton. 

Clinton will be Bloomberg’s running mate, according to Drudge, citing sources within team Bloomberg. 

Sources close to Bloomberg campaign tell DRUDGE REPORT that candidate is considering Hillary Clinton as running mate, after their polling found the Bloomberg-Clinton combination would be formidable force… MORE

DRUDGE has learned that Bloomberg himself would go as far as to change his official residence from New York to homes he owns in Colorado or Florida, since the electoral college makes it hard for a POTUS and VPOTUS from the same state… Developing.. 

This doesn’t, of course, make it necessarily so, even though it is manifestly obvious the psychopath, serial lawbreaker, and war criminal Clinton wants nothing more than to be president, or short of that VP. 

Now that the democrat field is narrowing and Mike’s prepared to spend billions—this is how the exceptional nation elects presidents—there will be a shift away from Mayor CIA and the other identity pushing presidential wannabes in favor of a staunch establishment figure. Biden was left in the dust weeks ago. 

Michael Bloomberg is by far the most dangerous political candidate—even more dangerous than the Orange Carnival Barker. 

Just last month, Nanny Mike said he doesn’t “live in a regret world”—a red flag sociopathic trait—and does not regret supporting the mass murder of 1.5 million Iraqis. 

“America wanted to go to war, but it turns out it was based on faulty intelligence, and it was a mistake,” he said, parroting the same old tired and discredited lies the establishment has used for years to justify the destruction of Iraq. 

No, Mike, the American people didn’t want to go to war. They were lied to by Bush and the neocons. It wasn’t “faulty intelligence.” The neocons lied and not a single one was held responsible. Mike knows this. He also knows the mass murder campaign in Iraq was performed for Israel, not the American people, who had absolutely zero to fear from Saddam Hussein, a former CIA operative. 

Bloomberg went so far as to insist Iraqis had something to do with the attacks of 9/11, taking his talking points—or points based on lies—from the neocons. 

If elected, Bloomberg would be the first Jewish president. Over the span of his career, he has consistently and fervently supported Israel, including support for its illegal bombing of Gaza. Nanny Mike gave a thumbs up to the 2014 attack on Gaza, which killed 2,250 Gazans, 1,600 of them civilians. 

“Israel’s failure to act with proportionality—and Michael Bloomberg’s endorsement of this failure—clashes with international law, which prohibits attacks that would cause ‘excessive’ civilian damage or loss of life in relation to the anticipated military advantage of the attack,” writes Kathryn Shihadah. 

Not only does Nanny Mike want to dictate what you eat and drink, but he is also an enemy of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. He is a fierce opponent of BDS. 

For example, in 2014, he referred to the nonviolent movement known as Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS)—modeled after the movement that brought the downfall of apartheid in South Africa—as “an outrage” that is “totally misplaced.”

“I strongly oppose the BDS movement,” he said. “And I vehemently disagree with everyone who fails to see why the Jewish people deserve a permanent Jewish state.”

Bloomberg said if elected he will waste no time going after Israel’s critics. Thanks to the ADL and the SPLC, among others (including the FBI), it is considered a “hate crime” to disparage Israel. “I will label hate crimes as ‘domestic terrorism’—and charge perpetrators accordingly,” he promised. 

Mike would also work to prevent any member of Congress from taking Israel to task for its multiple crimes and egregious violations of international law. “We must never let Israel be a football that American politicians kick around in an effort to score points.”

Score points? I’m not sure what planet this ga-zillionaire Zionist lives on. It is a cardinal sin and a certain career destroyer for any member of Congress to criticize Israel. A recent crop of leftists in Congress—known colloquially as “The Squad”— have dared to call out Israel’s crimes. They will not be re-elected. The media is thrashing them as scurrilous antisemites. 

Moreover, as lord of a huge corporate media propaganda organization, he demanded his stenographers prettify Israel’s ongoing ethnic cleansing, torture, and murder of Palestinians. 

Mondoweiss managed to get access to a few Bloomberg memos sent to his workers. The  following memo demonstrates Mike is an ardent and racist ethnic cleansing Zionist:

Avoid referring to Palestine, as in “Israel’s incursion into Palestine,” because there is no such country. Instead, describe the occupied areas by their names, as in the West Bank or Gaza Strip. Palestinian people or Palestine Authority is OK.

This is a standard Zionist talking point. There is no such place as Palestine nor a Palestinian people. 

American Jews love this reactionary former Republican (not that party affiliation matters to these people). The Jewish Virtual Library notes: 

Ron Kampeas notes that Bloomberg enjoyed significant Jewish support when he ran for mayor and has the liberal credentials that appeal to many Jewish voters. Unlike Bernie Sanders, who is Jewish but highly critical of Israel, Bloomberg has a record of supporting Israel with both his time and money. During the 2014 Gaza War, Bloomberg defied a Federal Aviation Authority ban on flying into Israel after rockets landed near Ben-Gurion Airport. “In my own little way, I wanted to show the world that Jews would never let fear of terrorism keep us out of Israel,” Bloomberg said later.

Arabs and Muslims in New York know all about Mike’s mistrust of folks who take issue with Israel and its brutality. As mayor of New York, he organized an Orwellian surveillance program aimed at Muslims with the help of the CIA in violation of its charter which is, of course, nothing if not a joke.

But let’s put aside his racism and the millions of “philanthropic” dollars he has showered on Israel. Bloomberg is a crony capitalist who enthusiastically defends the parasitical vultures and vampire squids on Wall Street.

For instance, he said Congress (supposedly the representatives of the American people) is responsible for the “subprime crisis,” not the banksters. This should be expected considering Bloomberg got his start at the securities brokerage Salomon Brothers and became a partner in 1973. He later established a company catering to Wall Street. 

While Trump is certainly a disaster—the little rich boy who wanted to be president—Mike Bloomberg is ten times worse. 

Teamed up with Hillary Clinton, the sadistic former Secretary of State who thought Gaddafi’s anal rape with a knife and murder was hilarious, a war in the Middle East (that Trump rightly fears) and an authoritarian police state at home will be a certainty.

Vampire Squid vs. Multi-Millionaire Socialist

In the Bizarro World of Crony Capitalism, we are routinely presented with a number of ridiculous fantasies.

Lloyd Blankfein, one of a handful of banksters responsible for the “Greatest Recession,” is warning about the possibility of the multi-millionaire socialist Bernie Sanders taking the Democrat nomination. 

The boss of Goldman Sachs—a vampire squid feeding on toxic derivatives and various financial Ponzi schemes blue checked by the state—is afraid Bernie might actually win and bring down the hammer on him and other crony capitalists fat on money swindled from the American people.

Blankfein should be thankful he’s not swinging from a lamp post on Wall Street. In previous times, cattle rustlers and thieves were hung high or at the least served jail time. Now corporate financial criminals are too big to jail and fine. 

Of course, even if Bernie wins the presidency, which is unlikely, Congress will in no way “reform” Wall Street, punish the thieving banksters and their corporate-fascist partners in crime autocratically deciding policy in the swamp.

It is slightly amusing Blankfein mentioned the Russian hoax to make his point. He wants you to believe Putin-Hitler and the evil Russians are throwing in with Bernie the multi-millionaire socialist to undermine America, the supposed bountiful democracy that is nothing of the sort.

The establishment is freaking out over the fact the plebs want real change—not fake Obama change—and that they mistakenly voted for the shell game poseur and crony capitalist Trump and may vote for the angry socialist Sanders. Even if Bernie won the election, there would be little more than heated rhetoric because Congress is corporate-owned and lobbyist infested. 

Following the “debate” (scripted Kabuki theater) in New Hampshire, the former DC cop turned corporate teleprompter reader, Chris Matthews, went over the deep-end:

Sorry, Chris, but this sort of fantasy bullshit no longer works. Castro wouldn’t have staged a revolution in Cuba if not for corporate support for the brutal military dictator Fulgencio Batista, who aligned himself not only with transnational corporations but the Italian and Jewish Mafia as well. 

“At the beginning of 1959 United States companies owned about 40 percent of the Cuban sugar lands—almost all the cattle ranches—90 percent of the mines and mineral concessions—80 percent of the utilities—practically all the oil industry—and supplied two-thirds of Cuba’s imports,” writes Timothy Alexander Guzman.

The writer, historian, and special assistant to President Kennedy, Arthur M. Schlesinger, said prior to the Cuban revolution: “The corruption of the government, the brutality of the police, the regime’s indifference to the needs of the people for education, medical care, housing, for social justice and economic justice is an open invitation to revolution.” 

But Chris won’t tell you about that. Instead, he speculates Bernie, a murderous Fidel Castro in waiting, will unjustly hang him and the rest of the corporate propaganda media in Central Park. This sort of nonsense might’ve worked during the artificially created “Cold War,” but it doesn’t fly now, as responses to this absurdity on social media demonstrate. 

But enough of the hysterical rantings of an over-paid and privileged member of the CIA’s Mighty Wurlitzer club, a subversive conduit for the dissemination of lies and misinformation put in place when Chris was in grade school. The rare Blankfein tweet following the circus in New Hampshire reveals the fear and trepidation of the vampire squid parasites on Wall Street as the plebs begin reacting—ineffectively, I might add—to the gross criminality of the financial class.

In the Bizarro World of Crony Capitalism, we are routinely presented with a number of ridiculous fantasies, often accepted as gospel truth. First, that Bernie Sanders will put an end to crony capitalism, and second the Russians will undermine the election because—well, like George Bush’s terrorists (manufactured by the CIA and its cohorts), they hate us for our freedom. 

Of course, real democracy is in short supply, so there is nothing for Putin-Hitler to destroy, even if he wanted to.

The overpaid slavering teleprompter reader Chris Matthews may enjoy a degree of “freedom” (permission to run his mouth) but those of us out here in deplorable-ridden flyover country who disagree with the crony capitalist parasitical state have been stripped of this freedom. Not only have we been deplatformed from social media and the web but are now in the FBI’s crosshairs because—well, because, they hate us for our freedom, or rather our natural right to speak truth to authoritarian power. 

For the state, that is the definition of terrorism.

Trump Chumps and 2020

The Orange Narcissus will not save us

The Unz Review has posted an article by a guy who self-describes himself as a Trump Chump. He admits being fooled by the Stable Genius, a former Democrat now calling himself a “conservative,” whatever the hell that is (it was an election gimmick). 

“I spent months making the case for Trump on this website,” he writes. “I will be the first to admit that I was wrong and that those who were skeptical of Trump in our community were right in 2016. In that election, I drank the koolaid and was one of Trump’s Chumps. Unlike AmNats, I have tried to learn something from that experience. I hate getting fooled by Republicans.”

I am continually amazed by this sort of hobbled retrospection. 

It was obvious from the day Donald Trump announced his candidacy that he is completely and totally ill-suited for the job. He is a former reality TV personality with practically zero knowledge of geopolitics, geography, history, and the Constitution. How this sort of person—a naif in all matters political—became president is not a mystery. 

The “conservatives” who elected Trump by and large share his ignorance. Most live in an alt-right fantasy world. Trump has, of course, being a narcissist, turned his back on the alt-right. He betrayed his loyal (and equally narcissistic and self-seeking) apostle Roger Stone, the man with Richard Nixon tattoo, the neurotic former president responsible for killing an unknown number of Vietnamese, Cambodians, Laotians, etc. (this was known as “peace with honor”). 

It should have been obvious this real estate tycoon living the high life on daddy’s money would not only fail his naive and desperate supporters but also stab them in the back. It’s what egomaniacal psychopaths do—betray all, even the most loyal, and use them as doormats in the endless pursuit of elevating their bilious and destructive personalities. 

“Those who feared that the Trump administration would lull the conservative base into a false sense of complacency and put all the normies back to sleep were right.”

Trump isn’t a conservative. He is apolitical and the only member of the Stable Genius party. Trump shares a lot with Caligula. Recall that the insane Roman emperor wanted to remove the heads from various statues of gods located across Rome and replace them with his own. I can envision Trump doing likewise. 

As for the “conservative base,” this is merely a gaggle of statists eager to force their will on “liberals” who share the same pathology of revenge and control. It seems appropriate to paraphrase the despicable dirty trickster Karl Rove here: the chosen (in this case, neocons) will go about their criminal business and as plebs sit by the wayside and watch them make history (or possibly the end of history). 

“Those who feared that the Trump administration would suck all of the energy out of the Alt-Right were right.”

The alt-right is simply a gaggle of wannabe statists with a scary take on American exceptionalism. Breitbart—the website, not the dead man—is at the epicenter of this movement. It was founded in Israel and has consistently advocated Zionist talking points. 

“Those who rationalized voting for Donald Trump on the basis of immigration and changing demographics were proven wrong about that too.”

The poor “AmNats” and alt-righters can’t see the forest for the trees. The “conservatives” know the influx of illegal immigrants is part of a plan to ensure Dem political dominance but this is only a small part of a larger picture. The ruling elite no longer has a use for hard-working and politically naive Americans. Generation after generation built the most advanced and prosperous nation in the history of the world. All of this wealth has been strip-mined over the last few decades by the financial elite. 

For the financial elite, the “changing demographic” in America is a win-win. Can you remember the last time Mexican peasants—illiterate, superstitious, and completely and utterly powerless—overthrew the parasitical elite in that third-world hellhole? 

Millions of Americans are completely clueless about this sort of dystopian engineering and continue to foolishly believe a wall—maybe like the one in Israel—will stop the influx of immigrants. It is quite normal for the desperately poor to run across a border if politicians on the other side are offering free stuff. This does not require rocket science. 

“Those who voted for Donald Trump to ‘move the Overton Window’ succeeded in making homosexuality more acceptable on the Right.”

Did Trump make homosexuality more acceptable? I don’t think he really cares, so long as homosexuals and everybody else march to the polls later this year and vote for him.

The average “conservative” opposed to the sexual preference of a neighbor is an ogre trying to force his or her beliefs on other people—the very definition of authoritarianism. It’s none of their business what consenting adults do in private, so long as they are not violating the rights of others. 

On the other hand, unethical and opportunistic “liberals” now routinely exploit homosexuality and proclaim it as a “right” that must be enforced by the state. Like illegal immigration, this is simply another political stratagem. The ruling elite are intent on forcibly reducing the number of plebs, for whom they have nothing but contempt for (the “climate change” hoax plays into this strategy as well and is also another way to steal even more money from witless citizens). 

“What about Antifa and Big Tech censorship? Aren’t those good reasons to vote for Donald Trump in 2020? Neither of these issues were on our radar screen BEFORE Donald Trump won the 2016 election.”

Once again, ignorance reigns supreme. The author of this article needs to do a little historical research. The state ALWAYS attempts, in draconian fashion or more covertly, to stifle opposition and maintain its political dominance through violence. It is now doing this by proxy through its “big tech” crony capitalist partners. Facebook and Twitter (where I am de-platformed) are working with the government to shut down the opposition—and Trump, through incompetence and failure to understand complexities, is facilitating this process. He turned his back on his most ardent supporters. They are the vast majority of those being de-platformed. But then, for Trump, they only matter during elections. 

It would be a simple matter to declare Antifa a terrorist organization, round up its violent members, and lock them up so they will not be able to hurt people. Antifa, however, is an asset for the state and its owners. Not only does Antifa jack up political polarity and tension in America—thus preventing the plebs from coming together—it also elicits retaliatory violence by people the state really considers a threat: the “AmNats,” alt-righters, and (laughably) the “dissident right.” 

“Speaking of Trump’s donors, we wrote Trump a blank check in the 2016 election to deliver on the MAGA agenda that he had sold us.”

Trump’s main donor was Sheldon Adelson, a Zionist who would like nothing more than to nuke Iran and fully and finally ethnically cleanse the Palestinians. The Zionists in Israel and America love Trump because he’s controlled by Javanka. MAGA should be MIGA, Make Israel Great Again. 

“In the last two elections, Donald Trump has pulled a bait-and-switch and Trump’s Chumps are gullible enough to fall for it a third time… Trump’s Chumps have demonstrated in the last two election cycles how easy they are to manipulate. They can be relied on to vote and shill for the GOP no matter what it does.”

Absolutely. Thank you for making my point. 

Finally, if you vote for Trump in November—or any establishment politician in Congress—you have nobody to blame but yourself for the engineered destruction of America. 

The Orange Narcissus will not save us. He will not defend his supporters. They are now considered “white nationalists” and terrorists by the FBI. It will be of little concern what happens to them after he is re-elected because for Trump they are little more than useful tools and idiots.

One Percent Dems Have Little in Common with Ordinary Americans

Responsible as servitors of the state for the destruction of the American economy.

Forbes has a rundown on the net worth of the contenders jostling to be the next establishment teleprompter reader. 

The “poorest” candidate is Pete Buttigieg. He’s worth a measly $100,000. He’d be a lot wealthier if he had not ditched a gig at the consulting firm McKinsey to go into Indiana politics back in 2010. He also fell for the student loan usury scam and that has tamped down his wealth. McKinsey is known for helping death merchants gear up for the Second World War.

Tulsi Gabbard, the only candidate to come out against the neocon wars, is worth half a  million bucks, apparently by investing in Litecoin and Ethereum, although there is little info on the source of her wealth. 

Julian Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio, is worth $700,000. His gig as Obama’s secretary of housing and urban development included a revolving door that deposited him in a cushy position at the University of Texas’ school of public affairs.

Andrew Yang comes in at a cool million bucks. Yang “cofounded Stargiving.com, a website that gave charitable donors the chance to meet celebrities. After it folded he went to work for small mobile software and healthcare companies, then became CEO of test prep business Manhattan Prep in 2006. Yang helped grow the company to $11 million in revenues before industry giant Kaplan bought it in 2009 for tens of millions,” according to Forbes. 

Kirsten Gillibrand dropped out. It’s difficult to stand out in an echo chamber crowd of teleprompter reader wannabes preaching identity politics and proposing schemes to steal more money from hardworking Americans. Her Senate job “representing” New York earns her $174,000 a year. Kirsten and her hubby’s “most valuable asset appears to be Gillibrand’s federal pension, worth an estimated $450,000.” She’s said to be worth $1 million. 

Marianne Williamson “made millions as a self-help guru and author” and most of her cash is squirreled away “in mutual funds, money market accounts and cash accounts, along with a handful of publicly traded stocks like Apple, Home Depot and VF Corp. While Williamson is not likely to win the election, she’ll almost certainly make money off her campaign: In April, she released her latest book, A Politics of Love,” according to Forbes. She’s worth a cool $1.5 million. 

Steve Bullock is the governor of Montana. He owns half the historic buildings in Helena and is worth $1.5 million.

Amy Klobuchar has spent 12 years in the Senate. Her federal pension is worth $560,000 and her net worth is pegged at $2 million. 

Bernie Sanders, the socialist anti-capitalist, is worth $2.5 million. As a wealthy socialist, he was able to pay off a 30-year mortgage on a second home in Burlington, Vermont. He made most of his money writing books about evil capitalists. 

Beto O’Rourke, the former hippie who liked to play pranks with baby poo, is worth $4 million. He married into the family of an El Paso real estate tycoon. He dropped out after most people figured him for a rank opportunist with mental health issues. 

Kamala Harris, the junior United States Senator from California and former San Francisco DA, is worth $6 million. If the salary of her attorney husband is added in, the couple is worth $8.2 million. 

Next up, Sleepy Joe Biden. He considers himself middle class even though Joe is worth $9 million. How many middle-class people can afford to pay off a $2.7 million dollar mortgage in less than a year? 

Elizabeth Warren has based her campaign on lambasting the one percent (of which she is a member) and proposes stealing a lot of their money. She’s worth $12 million. 

Tom Steyer is doomed. He’ll never make it to the White House. He established one of the largest hedge fund operations in the country. Hedge funds, of course, are part of the problem, but Tom suddenly had a change of mind and decided to concentrate on “politics and philanthropy, concentrating his early efforts on protecting the environment”—because, well, the Democrat Green Revolution, a parasitic scheme to steal more of your money and eventually have you living in a mud hut, supposedly resulted in a “change of heart” for Steyer, who is in the upper echelon of the one percent. He’s worth $1.6 billion. 

It was obvious from the start of the 2016 campaign the Orange Genius is a billionaire, no surprise there. Plenty of Democrats excoriate him for being a rich white man but say little about the millionaires and billionaires on their side of the street. 

Finally, we have the granddaddy of control freaks—who formerly dictated as mayor what New Yorkers can eat and drink—Michael Bloomberg. He has amassed a huge fortune—$53.4 billion—mostly from his “88% stake in financial information [propaganda] company Bloomberg LP, which generates an estimated $10 billion in annual revenue.“ Like Trump, Bloomberg understands how easy it can be to buy your way into the White House. It’s reported he will spend $250 million to do so. If he wins, and he won’t, Bloomberg will come after your Second Amendment and outlaw half the food in your refrigerator. 

It’s safe to say these people truly don’t understand the economic plight of the average American in flyover country. In fact, most are responsible as servitors of the state for the destruction of the American economy and the neocon-initiated foreign wars sapping our blood and treasure. 

All are apparatchiks for a brutal and parasitical system, including poor Tulsi and the multi-millionaire socialist Bernie. Both, however, are unacceptable to the deep state arrangers of the two-sided crony capitalist system, the demopublican racket designed to enrich our mega-wealthy and largely psychotic overlords.

The Circus Comes to Iowa

Trump will be re-elected. 

The Dem circus rolled into Iowa with an app to tabulate caucus results. It failed, miserably, and by the time I read the news this morning, there were zero results. I had a good chuckle over that one, especially after discovering the app was developed by an Obama lickspittle. 

But what’s really amusing is the response by the propaganda media. After results finally did trickle in later in the day, it was determined Joe Biden was left in the dust and this upset the overpaid teleprompter readers who, of course, are expected to cheerlead the establishment favorite. 

Yes, Todd, it is “catastrophic” for you, Hillary Clinton, and the rest of the establishment parasites who tell us ad nauseam they’re “public servants,” when it fact they’re self-seeking sociopaths selected to service the financial elite while peddling a raft of lies and blue sky bullshit nobody believes anymore. 

But not to worry. Establishment Democrats managed to push Mayor Pete, now known as Mayor Cheat (for declaring his victory prior to the arrival of fiddled results), up above Bernie Sanders. 

That’s right. Democrats out here in flyover country want Bernie Sanders because he’s not an establishment Democrat.

Citizen Democrats want Bernie the same way citizen Republicans wanted and got Trump in 2016. Flyover Democrats and Republicans, generally ignored until elections roll around, want change—not Obama fake establishment change but real change, the sort of change the elite will never allow, not without bloodletting. 

It’s too bad. They will not get real, honest change—not without a revolution. 

I’m not sure Hillary Incorporated will be able to sideline Sanders like it did in 2016. People are warning up to his fantasy socialism and basket of free stuff because—well, because they’ve been ripped off by the financial elite for decades, the middle class is melting, and the USG is lying about economic stats and feeding (through a bankster cartel masquerading as a federal agency) made-up funny money into the Great Corporate Casino and using its artificiality to argue —as the Stable Orange Genius tell us—this is nothing short of the Greatest Economy Ever. 

The problem is most people don’t have a solid grasp of any of this. Millions believe a free stuff economy is actually possible. It’s difficult to blame them. They’ve been ripped off for so long they’ll vote for an avowed Marxist. 

The second sabotage of Bernie by the DNC in favor of Joe Biden—he appears to be suffering from the early stages of senility—will piss off a lot of citizen Democrats. 

Mayor Pete will not remain at the top of the list and like Trump, he’s nowhere near presidential material. Pete’s at the top of the list to block Bernie, but at the end of the day, that dog don’t hunt. The child-sniffer Biden will be hoisted to the top of the corrupt pile of shit known as the DNC. 

And Trump will be re-elected. 

And there will be blood.

Mayor Pete’s Millennial Slavery Program

Slaves for the national security state.

Pete Buttigieg is pushing “A New Call to Service” for millennials. If Pete is elected—he is currently running head-to-head with Warren, Sanders, and Biden—his “call” will become a mandatory form of slavery.  

As should be expected, Buttigieg’s plan is gussied up with identity slash social justice baggage. It hopes to suck in naive millennials with the promise of student loan debt relief. 

From Politico earlier this year. 

Service fellows would be considered for student debt forgiveness, hiring preference and vocational training. The plan also calls for developing new types of service corps like a Climate Corps, a Community Health Corps, or a Intergenerational Service Corps. All of them would operate under the leadership of a chief service officer, who would serve on the Domestic Policy Council and the National Security Council.

Slaves for the national security state. This is hardly a new concept. Between World War 2 and the Vietnam War, millions of young Americans were drafted and tens of thousands killed. This form of indentured servitude to the state was shelved after college students and other young people went into the streets, burned draft cards, and immigrated to Canada. 

If this proposal becomes reality, bone spurs of the rich may not be an excuse to avoid a government mandated “call to service.” Of course, the mega-wealthy always find ways to protect their children from the meat grinder of the state. 

Mayor Pete is vague on specifics. Nick Gillespie writes:

Buttigieg was emphatic that he’s not talking about forcing people to serve only in the military. Again, there were no details, but his national service plan would include having 18-year-old kids sign up for the armed forces or for a wide variety of other public-sector jobs. National service, he avers, is “one of those ideas that’s always popular but never urgent.” That’s true, regardless of political persuasion. Democrats such as former New Jersey Sen. Bill Bradley was also yammering on about it and the conservative Republican William F. Buckley, Jr. wrote a 1990 book, Gratitude, touting the idea.

Indeed, forcing the commoners to fight the Empire’s forever wars or sweeping streets and polishing national monuments (which, of course, will not be Confederate) is supported by both sides of the corporate political class. Sociopaths in statehouses and Congress have no problem forcing 18 year old plebs to forfeit a year or more of their lives in service to a government that doesn’t represent them and serves the interests of banks and corporations. 

Gillespie writes Mayor Pete’s mandatory service plan—the only way this will work—is “deeply illiberal” and “profoundly at odds with the American experience.”

That may have been true a couple generations ago, but it certainly doesn’t ring true today. It’s fair to say the vast majority of citizens know little about the “American experience” of the past, and no matter the propaganda, the feel-goods, and other enticements (student loan forgiveness), few will sign up. It will take the threat of prison and fines to motivate basement-dwelling millennials to become indentured servants.

Mayor Pete knows this. He’s just not saying.

Russia and Clinton’s Election Plan B

Only Hillary can save us from Putin and his deplorables. 

America is an insular nation, exceptional only in its willful ignorance of the rest of the world. Many Americans, undoubtedly a majority, know very little about what is really going on in the world. 

Millions of Americans are unable to see Hillary Clinton for what she is—a “pay-to-play” corrupt psychopath and warmonger. It is entirely fair to say she is responsible for the murder of hundreds of thousands of people in Libya and Syria. But, like most Americans, if you get your information from establishment sources, you’re not going to know about this. Only Benghazi briefly scraped away the patina and whitewash to provide a glimpse of the real Hillary Clinton, a glimpse long ago faded in the rearview mirror of controlled corporate media politics.  

Social media meme-izes a conspiracy theory so weak, so transparently bogus and manufactured it is sincerely shocking anybody beyond a six-year-old believes it. 

Meanwhile, if the idea Tulsi Gabbard is some kind of Russian subversion agent is too much for you to wrap your head around, there is a more believable lie to destroy the only antiwar candidate: insist she’s merely a “useful idiot” for Putin and the perfidious Russians. Evidence? She was favorably covered by Russian media.

Democrat zombies, mouthing fantasy talking points, actually believe “Tulski” Gabbard and the other mostly forgettable candidates are in the race simply to prevent “Wonder Woman”—I prefer the Iron Maiden of Creative Destruction—from grabbing her due. Anything less than ushering Hillary to the executive throne is “Putin’s Plan” to destroy democracy. All third party candidates are traitors. Jill Stein works directly with the Russians. 

How dizzy are Democrats? Check out the next tweet. 

Both ISIS and al-Qaeda were manufactured by the national security state as an excuse to stretch out the war on terror for long as possible—gifting the military industrial complex with never-ending death merchandise contracts—while putting finishing touches on the surveillance and police state at home. The latter will make sure another Trump doesn’t rock the boat. 

Meanwhile, we should not underestimate how the Trump Derangement Syndrome is capable of creating sectarian violence, or at least fairy-tale level frenzied delusions that may result in real-world—or world-ending—violence. 

For the indoctrinated, it’s not Jeffrey Epstein and the Mossad blackmailing representatives of the corporate state, it’s Putin. 

Clinton’s Plan B to finally capture the throne—where she can do more damage than a Tiberius or Domitian to her rivals and enemies—relies on the outrageous Russian Lie. It is, of course, an entirely illogical and dangerous lie, but it’s all Hillary and the war party Democrats have to wage battle in the upcoming race (minus impeachment) of the regrettable Trump. 

Clinton’s attacks on rivals both inside and outside of the one-party state will intensify prior to her reentry into presidential politics. Like Trump, Clinton understands the power of invective—and the Big Lie as perfected by Hitler—and this will be her weapon of choice. Lies and conspiracy theories about Russia and Ukraine will propel her into summer of next and undermine what is already a rickety ship taking on water: the new “left” side of the one party state touting identity authoritarianism at home and a continuation of neocon wars and occupations in Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq. 

The other Democrat candidates—with the exclusion of Tulsi Gabbard—will jump at the chance to be Hillary’s running mate in the upcoming battle to get rid of Trump and put down the deplorables. Not Biden. He’s been there, done that. 

Of course, I could be totally wrong on all of this. Trump may defeat the latest national security state coup (FBI, CIA) against a sitting president, following Kennedy and Nixon. He might follow through on his half-ass promise to drain the swamp and close down US military bases around the world and bring the troops home. 

Then again, he might not.

Tulsi and Rigged Elections

An almost transparent blip on the political radar screen.

Tulsi Gabbard, who has at best minimal support by Democrats (around one percent), and zero from the corporate DNC, posted the following video earlier today.

There are so many of you who I’ve met in Iowa and New Hampshire who have expressed to me how frustrated you are that the DNC and corporate media are essentially trying to usurp your role as voters in choosing who our Democratic nominee will be.

This, of course, is nothing new, but thanks to Tulsi for reminding us of how “elections” are conducted. In fact, the state long ago corrupted the process and has selected candidates for long as anybody can remember. 

How is it possible a cognitively challenged and corrupt hack like Joe Biden is number one in the running—or was until Elizabeth Warren took that spot away from him? It’s possible because Biden is a trusted asset eager to do whatever he is told, same as Obama, Bush the lesser, Clinton (a “brother by another mother”), Bush the elder, Reagan… on and on, down the line. Like Hillary Clinton, the Democrat establishment believes it is Biden’s “turn” to read the teleprompter. All the others, well, they’re spoilers. 

They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, not inform or enlighten.

That replacement happened decades ago. Trump won the election because our rulers left the election process intact, arrogantly confident their handpicked candidates will win because only those who have come up through the system are permitted to run. It’s left intact as a public relations gimmick designed to fool the proles who are, regrettably, all too easy to control—or were until Trump appeared on the scene. 

Tulsi is spot on about the “debates,” which are nothing of the sort. Indeed, they are a form of televised bread and circuses—bread because most Americans receive some kind of support from the government, and a circus because all circuses are comical, theatrical, and well-scripted. 

As for being informed, that’s the last thing the ruling elite want. They have us believe in fantasies so absurd they may as well be props in a Luis Buñuel film—for instance, killing people in foreign lands is humanitarian and the economy is doing great (never mind the unemployed, the homeless, and record debt, both governmental and personal). 

In order to bring attention to this serious threat to our democracy, and ensure your voice is heard, I am giving serious consideration to boycotting the next debate on October 15th. I will announce my decision within the next few days. With my deepest aloha, thank you all again for your support.

This is commendable, although, sadly, an almost transparent blip on the political radar screen. Big corporate media will certainly not take notice, and if they perchance do it will be with snide commentary. 

The soft totalitarian machine rejects the socialist palliatives of Elizabeth Warren. She appears to be anti-corporatist, and that is inexcusable. Many of our political and social problems are related to the domination of corporations, most of the crony variety. 

Elizabeth Warren will be unable to break the corporate stranglehold on America. It is pure insanity to believe otherwise. The Democrat and Republican parties—one party disguised as two—will not savage corporations with taxation and redoubled punitive regulation, not if they wish to remain in Congress and receive money to run obscenely expensive campaigns. 

Warren will be overshadowed by the Hildabeast, Hillary Clinton, who is determined to be president. She will enter the race sometime next year, overturning the apple cart of other hopefuls, all spouting the same wealth distribution nonsense because, after all, a well-trained and ceaselessly indoctrinated public, most on a modern version of the Roman Cura Annona grain dole, love free stuff (stolen from others).

No way will the DNC accept Elizabeth Warren as the nominee. She will be subverted, the same way Bernie Sanders was. 

Most Americans don’t trust or like Hillary, but that hardly matters. 

The days of Trump may soon be over. If he’s not impeached on spurious grounds, he will enter the race under a toxic cloud of accusation and unproven high crimes and misdemeanors greatly amplified by a propaganda media. Polls consistently show he is losing traction, and the MAGA crowd is increasingly disillusioned, unable to realize its populist agenda. 

I’m sorry, Tulsi. Your effort to unmask the subversion of the election system will largely fall on deaf ears. As of this morning, the above video garnered a mere 800 views.

It will take more than a “debate” boycott to send the message. It will take a revolution to finally drain Trump’s swamp, end the endless wars, and force transnational corporations and foreign governments (most egregiously Israel) out of the bed they have shared for so long with our “representatives,” who are largely nothing more than self-seeking sociopaths on short leashes.

MAGA-con Joe Walsh: Get Rid of Trump, Vote for Me

A Walsh administration would be pretty much like the Trump administration. 

Most of us agree. Donald Trump is a disaster. He’s an unmoored mental case consumed with attacking enemies real and perceived. Trump’s not Hitler or a white supremacist. He’s a malignant narcissist. 

Joe Walsh, a former Illinois Republican representative, wants to challenge Trump during the upcoming primaries. 

Not that it matters. A Walsh administration would be pretty much like the Trump administration. 

This would be true in one crucial regard—support for Israel. 

Joe and The Donald share this ugly obsession, this support for apartheid, slow-motion ethnical cleansing (so we won’t notice), and attacks against Syria and Iraq, and Lebanon once again (this time Israel says it will kill a whole lot of innocent civilians as it once again tries to destroy Hezbollah). 

Walsh, like Trump, wants Israel to annex the occupied territories. He advocates “the combined wrath of Israel and the United States” to force the Palestinians to accept continued military occupation, land theft, and ethnic cleansing. 

Back in 2011, Walsh wrote for the Daily Caller:

As a freshman Congressman, I am pro-Israel first and pro-peace second. True peace in the Middle East will only come when that is our nation’s stated policy and not the other way around. Most U.S. presidents have followed the old paradigm and tried to be an honest broker between the two sides. President Obama seems only to pay lip service to even that role, and clearly his sympathies lie with the Palestinians. He is not capable of achieving peace in the Middle East because he is not pro-Israel.

It is interesting Walsh believes—along with the rest of the MAGA crowd—that Obama worked against Israel during his tenure. This is categorically untrue. Obama paid empty lip service to the Palestinians and sided with Israel. He told Netanyahu and the Israelis “so long as there is a United States of America, Ah-tem lo lah-vahd (You are not alone).” 

In 2016, Jason Ditz wrote: 

White House officials were reported in the Israeli press today saying they are willing to immediately sign a memorandum of understanding on a record-large military aid package that would give Israel more money per year than any nation in US history.

The difference? Obama didn’t grovel at Netanyahu’s feet or yammer platitudes about the eternal love of the United States government for “the only democracy in the Middle East,” which is, of course, another lie. He did not change the “special relationship,” merely underplayed it while the Benjamins went from American taxpayers to colonialist settlers who not only hate Arabs and Muslims but Americans as well. 

Joe’s not going to make it. Republicans will stand by their man, the contemptible Donald Trump, come hell or high water.

If Joe Walsh successfully divides the Republican side of the two-headed hydra and empowers the neocon Never Trump faction, the Democrats will take back the White House next year. They might do this anyway without Walsh’s help. If Trump wasn’t an ogre, his standing might be a little better, not that it matters. If the bottom falls out of the economy between now and the election, Trump will most certainly not be re-elected. 

The national security state will remain and US foreign policy will continue regardless of who sits in the White House or the state of the economy. 

Joe’s more of the same, albeit outwardly more well-mannered.

The State Needs an Enemy: Warren Warns About “White Supremacist” Threat

Commies, Islamists, and the threat of white supremacy.

The national security state requires a roster of enemies to justify its existence. Beginning in the late 1940s, it was the Commies, not simply the Soviet Union but Commies everywhere—in the State Department, the neighborhood PTA, even under your bed. 

This lasted until the fall of the Soviet Union. At that point, Bush the Elder told us we’d get a righty deserved “peace dividend,” in other words less “defense” spending. This was, of course, a grand illusion designed to fool the average American and steer the “guns and butter” discussion in the appropriate direction—feeding the military-industrial complex.

After the largely illusory threat of communism was vanquished, new enemies appeared. Beginning in the 1990s focused turned to the Middle East, first the wholly manufactured threat of Saddam Hussein, and then radical Islam, which, minus the FBI’s staged 1993 World Trade Center bombing, did not pose a threat to America or even its most favored nation, Israel. 

As the political class and the corporate media are wont to remind us, everything changed after 9/11. That event significantly increased the power and authority of the national security state (primarily the DoD, NSA, CIA, and new agencies, notably the Department of Homeland Security and an array of private-sector corporations). 

Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, and then the Islamic State served the purpose of growing the national security state to leviathan proportions and in the process diminishing the semi-liberty of the American people on a grand scale. 

All threats, however, have a shelf life. Trump supposedly defeated the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (in truth, Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah did). Even so, the Islamic threat remains on a back burner, ready to re-emerge when needed. 

Now we have super-threats, according to there state and its political class—Russia and China—with a scattering of minor non-threats, namely Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua (the last two recycled from the earlier period). 

Beginning in 2016, we were subjected to the absurd fairy tale of Russia, through Facebook ads, unbalancing the US election system (long rigged in favor of the political class) and the result was the victory of the execrable Donald Trump, a populist primitive and former reality TV star. 

The corporate media has wasted little time along with the Democrat side of the one-party hydra associating Trump with racism, sexism, nativism—the polar opposite of the adopted identity politics control device taken on by the state—and thus manufacturing the new threat: the alt-right and white nationalism or white supremacy. 

Supposed white nationalists are way out on the political fringe in small numbers and yet we’re told every day by the propaganda media most domestic terrorist acts are committed by racists, bigots, Nazis, and Trump supporters. More people are killed every week in Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, and other engineered wastelands, but this doesn’t contain any political capital, with the exception of outlawing firearms and self-defense, so it is irrelevant. 

During the Democrat “debate” in the ruin of Detroit, Senator Elizabeth Warren declared war on white supremacy. It was tucked neatly in with the rest of the identity theology. 

Meet the new enemy. The liberal corporate media has worked overtime to portray anyone to the right of Elizabeth Warren as a domestic terrorist. It’s not simply a small and mostly insignificant number of skin color-obsessed neurotics posing a dire threat to America, it’s anybody who opposes the identity-socialist agenda. 

The militarized police state and a posse comitatus-busting Pentagon stand ready to fight this new threat. After all, white supremacy affects all walks of life, according to Warren and the Democrats.
