Why Are the “Adults in the Room” So Awful?

Why Are the “Adults in the Room” So Awful?:

This is what your “adults in the room” have done. They have constructed a system of power, first domestically and then globally, the main purpose of which is to extract surplus labor from us to feed the rentiers they represent. In enforcing this system of power, they have inflected megadeaths on the world, and have no compunctions against inflicting more. The “adults in the room” are monsters. It’s time to take away their plaything – the American state – which they have used to wreak this destruction and mayhem on the world, and to make sure nobody else ever wields it again.

Hillary Stuffs Entire U.S. Ruling Class Into Her Big, Nasty Tent

Hillary Stuffs Entire U.S. Ruling Class Into Her Big, Nasty Tent:

While Democrats scream “fascist” at Donald Trump, actual fascists with real histories of mass murder at home and abroad gather in Hillary Clinton’s “Big Tent” Democratic Party. The melding of GOP and Democratic fat cats is “the most dramatic effect of the breakdown of the duopoly system set off by Donald Trump’s white nationalist, anti-‘free’ trade revolt.” Blacks and progressives will be shocked to find themselves at the margins of Hillary’s tent.

Wikileaks Reveals Mainstream Media’s Coziness With Clinton

Wikileaks Reveals Mainstream Media’s Coziness With Clinton:

The July Wikileaks release of nearly 20,000 Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails validated the concerns of Bernie Sanders supporters that the DNC helped rig the primary election for Clinton.

Could Hillary Lose?

Could Hillary Lose?:

If she were running against a Republican… like Mitt Romney, the answer would be Yes.

After eight years of President Drone, the Republican would have a clear advantage. It wouldn’t even matter if that Republican were to pander, say, to the Ted Cruz element in the GOP base, the way that Romney pandered to the Tea Party. The smart money would still be on him.

This year, however, the smart money has always been on Hillary – because everyone knew that, by hook or crook, the Democrats would nominate her over Bernie Sanders, no matter how many voters were feeling the Bern; and because the Republican field was comprised of Donald Trump…

Cindy Sheehan on How the Democrats Are Using Khizr and Ghazala Khan

Cindy Sheehan on How the Democrats Are Using Khizr and Ghazala Khan:

Cindy Sheehan’s son was killed in the same war that later took the life of the Khans’ son, and like them, Sheehan in 2005 was both a living rebuke to the Republican Party’s vision and an asset to the Democrats in their mission to take back the House….

It’s not an exaggeration to call Sheehan the face of the anti-war movement during the Bush years. Her son, Casey, was an Army specialist in the First Cavalry Division and, like Humayun Khan, he died in action. His mother’s initial mourning hardened into a tireless public campaign to end the war….

Sheehan sees the Khans’ story through the prism of her own sour experience in the public square. The villains aren’t all on one side of the aisle. “I think the Khans’ grief is being used by a party that is treacherous,” she said….

She’s not just talking about the loss of her son but also her onetime alliance with the Democratic Party.

It’s Getting Scarier

It’s Getting Scarier:

Economic sanctions, relentless propaganda, meddling in Ukraine, and now a presidential election in which the demonization of Russia has become the central issue of the campaign – all this is building toward a climax that could turn deadly at a moment’s notice.

As Israel Prospers, Obama Set to Give Them Billions From US Taxpayers:

The U.S. already transfers $3,100,000,000 in taxpayer money every year to Israel – more than any other country by far – but the new agreement Obama is set to sign “significantly raises” that amount, and guarantees it for 10 years.
