Reflections on the Schizophrenic unDNC Convention: Scratchy McScreachalot and her Balloons

by Scott Creighton

BALLOOOOOOONS!

Watching Hillary Clinton (I call her “Scratchy McScreachalot”) give her acceptance speech last night I couldn’t help but think of just how completely crazy this woman has become. Compare her old speeches in the senate when she was parroting the neocon lies about Iraq and Saddam in order to get Dems to vote for a war of aggression to this one. They just aren’t the same people. I don’t know where this thing came from but it probably started to rear it’s troubling head when it cackled “We came, We Saw, He Died! hee hee hee”

Lat night Scratchy McScreachalot’s speech was riddled with numbers of sudden, unexplained emotional disconnections between her facial expressions and the words coming out of her mouth. At one moment she would be talking about something serious with eyes peeled back, wide open and a scowl on her face and then suddenly, POW, like someone grabbed a handful of flesh from the back of her head and pulled her face back, she contorted into this menacing smile like a Chucky doll on meth. Or that character from We Happy Few.

smile

I know what it was. Her campaign manager whispering something in her earpiece trying to soften her up (“Hillary? Smile baby, come on.”).POW! So she does.

Either that or she’s taking her “Joy”

When she starts down the road in a speech about foreign policy or pretty much anything else, Scratchy McScreachalot can go nuclear fast and that doesn’t serve her new branding of Grandma President at all. They need to make her appeal to older women voters who are married with kids because historically (at least recently) they vote republican.

(Pay attention because watching the Scoop Jackson Dems appeal to republican voters (and neocons) is going to be a major theme in the next article.)

Every politician does this. They all have input coming in at real time while they give their speeches which were written by someone else (which is why the criticism of Trump’s wife’s speech was totally ridiculous. They all take credit for someone else’s writing). They’re not just puppets because they are wholly owned subsidiaries of major corporations and financial houses, they are quite literally puppets with someone’s hand stuck up their earpiece mouthing the words and faking the emotional context live on stage.

The problem with Scratchy McScreachalot is that she appears completely incapable of improvising anything that even closely resembles real human connection with the environment that surrounds her.

She doesn’t have any self-editing skills. When she was pleased that she had done the master’s bidding and rid the world of a beloved socialist leader in Africa who had been a thorn in their side, she couldn’t understand she was sitting in front of a live camera as she giggled and hopped in her chair like a 5-year-old you just told you are taking to the zoo.

Last night’s speech was full of misplaced inflections, mechanical cadence delivery and sudden, unexplained outbursts of emotional transitions that just popped up out of the blue with no rhyme or reason.

It’s like something trying to be human, repeating and regurgitating mimicked affections of humanity without really understanding what they mean or where they belong. Do you understand?

Like a developing toddler trying to figure out which facial emojis it can use to illicit various responses from it’s parents, Scratchy McScreachalot seems to be regressing back to that early development stage and when you compare the long history of public speeches this woman delivered over the decades she’s been in public office to this one, you have to wonder what is causing this OBVIOUS deterioration.

Now, I’m not a psychiatrist but something tells me disjointed communication skills like these are a clue to something.

But then, at the end, it got even worse.

Democratic convention: Obama piles on more lies

by Barry Grey, WSWS

President Barack Obama topped off day three of the Democratic convention with a demagogic speech that presented a rose-colored picture of America so out of touch with reality as to make the eruption of popular anger and discontent in the 2016 election incomprehensible.

Obama’s false and complacent speech began with a self-congratulatory listing of the supposedly progressive achievements of his nearly eight years in office, during which poverty has increased, social inequality has reached new heights and the country has been continuously at war—making his presidency the first ever that has presided over uninterrupted warfare.

Showing his contempt for the intelligence of the American people, he concluded by repeating the slogans of his 2008 election campaign, “Yes we can” and “the audacity of hope,” as though America in 2016 was the realization of the empty promises he made back then and began to betray even before assuming office. Needless to say, words such as “drone assassination,” “Guantanamo,” “indefinite detention,” “NSA spying” and “Wall Street bailout” were not to be heard.

In its sheer cynicism and dishonesty, Obama’s speech was entirely in line with the convention as a whole. It has been a nonstop exercise in deception, with the central lie being the pretense that the Democratic Party—a capitalist party of war and reaction controlled from top to bottom by the corporate-financial elite in alliance with the military and the CIA—is somehow a vehicle of human progress devoted to the interests of the people.

With the official nominations of Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, out of the way, and the right-wing, pro-war Democratic ticket having been blessed by the bogus “socialist” Bernie Sanders, the convention organizers stepped up their efforts to outflank the fascistic Republican candidate, Donald Trump, from the right. This is part of an electoral strategy aimed at consolidating support within the military and intelligence agencies and on Wall Street, and winning over disaffected Republicans and wealthy, conservative independents.

The Perversion of the unDNC Convention: Part 2 – Clinton’s New Dems Promoting a New McCarthyism (you can’t make this stuff up)

by Scott Creighton

(Part 1 of a two part article on the perversion that is the unDNC convention this week can be found here)

Da Ebil Ruskies are Colluding with Da Ebil Donald to Deny Saint Hillary the White House” Clinton campaign and their sock-puppets in the mass media.

Neoliberal Hillary Clinton, the nominee of my former party, has a long history of agitating against the popular and elected government of Vladimir Putin in an effort to force a regime change in the country that was once a neoliberal feeding frenzy under the drunken eye of Boris Yeltsin. That is an uncontroversial statement.

Lest anyone forget, Hillary Clinton did her level best to disrupt the Russian elections back in 2011 and when that failed, she attempted to foment a color revolution in the country by making a color revolution specialist the US Ambassador to Russia in 2012.

“Want to know why so many Russians hated Boris Nemtsov? Here’s a video of him paying a visit on U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Michael Anthony McFaul, just after McFaul took office back in 2012. It’s well understood here and in Russia, that McFaul’s task was to attempt to instigate a color revolution in Russia from day one.

Most Russia-watchers are diplomats, or specialists on security and arms control. Or Russian culture. I am neither. I can’t recite Pushkin by heart. I am a specialist in democracy, anti-dictatorial movements, and revolutions” (emphasis added). Michael Anthony McFaul

“(Hillary) Clinton noted that McFaul, who is a specialist in democratic transition – a Kommersant headline from January 11 touted him as a “color revolution specialist” – is uniquely suited for his new post, given Russia’s current climate.” Russia Profile

So in comes the color revolution specialist and one of the first to meet and greet the neoliberal scum, is Boris Nemtsov. Go figure.” Scott Creighton, March 1, 2015

(It should be noted that Boris Nemtsov was a pure neoliberal who wanted Hillary Clinton to help set him up as the next Boris Yeltsin in Russia and when that failed, they tried a mini-false flag operation, his shooting in early 2015, as a means to further destabilize Moscow. It failed.)

That is the backdrop for you informed voters out there as the likes of Joe Scarborough parrot the ridiculous and completely baseless claim that Vladimir Putin is behind the hacking of the unDNC emails and the leak of them prior to the convention this week.

The truth is, Hillary did it, not Vlad the Destroyer of Worlds. As if that really mattered.

The Perversion of the unDNC Convention: Part 1 – “Vote for Hillary Because She Doesn’t Have a Penis” (you can’t make this stuff up)

by Scott Creighton

The unDemocratic National Committee”s (unDNC) convention has ironically been turned into a showcase of the basest most deplorable electioneering I’ve seen in a long time. You have to go back to Rudy “noun, verb, 9/11” Giuliani or George W. Bush’s “Orange Level Terror Alert” reelection campaign of 2004 to see anything even closely comparable to this. And it’s ironic because anything Hillary Clinton touches turns into slime. She’s like a snail: you can always tell where she’s been.

Just ask all those Haitians protesting at the unDNC convention this week, asking where that 6 billion dollars of rebuilding money went after Hillary put her sleazy husband in charge of the project. Ask them if everything she touches becomes tainted by her corruption. They’ll tell you. No one is listening in Happy Happy Joy Joy New Dem Land, but they will tell you, if you were to care enough to ask.

Two things strike me as the most jaw-droppingly perverse characteristics coming out of the convention thus far:

  1. Vote for Hillary because she has a vagina
  2. Da Ebil Ruskies are Colluding with Da Ebil Donald to Deny Saint Hillary the White House

The absurdity of the unDNC convention has reached level boss status and that is directly attributable to the person whom they have chosen to represent them this fall in the race for the most important office of the land. With a start like this, I am deeply ashamed to have ever called myself a Democrat.

(I have decided to break my coverage of these two perversity-laden developments of the unDNC convention into two articles since the second is so much longer than the first and requires less offensive language. Part 1 is below)

Michelle Obama’s “Great America” Isn’t That Great for So Many Others Out Here… and we shouldn’t forget that

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Jane Colden on Facebook made this. I thought it was perfect so I wanted to share it with you guys. Very nice Jane.

“Don’t let anyone ever tell you this country isn’t great. That we need to make it great again. Because this right now is the greatest country on earth” Michelle Obama

I don’t know what the fuck she’s talking about. Yosemite?

Not that long ago the people of Great Britain and the whole of the United Kingdom were debating an idea, the idea of leaving the European Union. I remember watching a young black woman TV star talking about how wonderful the EU was because it allowed her, a black woman from Africa, to rise to what she considered the “top” of her profession and enjoy a life of access and fame. This, to her, was proof of how inclusive the UK is under the rubric of the EU and she feared a different nation would rise in it’s wake if the nationalists, the “isolationists”, took the day and the vote to “LEAVE” won out.

Last night First Lady Michelle Obama attended the opening night of Hillary Clinton’s coronation extravaganza and she gave a speech which is being widely hailed as one of the greatest of all time by the breathless Clinton sycophants from the MSM (These are some of the same breathless MSM sycophants who were sent some of those emails that Debbie Wasserman Schultz got in trouble for, by the way)

The main point of the First Lady’s speech is that we don’t need to “Make America Great Again” because it already is great. It’s just fine. America is already “great”

This is politics 101. Hillary Clinton is running as an extension of the Obama administration which ran openly as a continuation of the first Clinton administration and supposedly was a “CHANGE” from the Bush administration (which it wasn’t as it turns out). For this reason it’s important for the Clinton machine (and certainly anyone named “Obama”) to come out and say things are just fine in the country and that everyone is doing splendidly.

Like so many other things associated with Hillary Clinton and to a slightly lesser degree, Barack Obama, that is a lie. And it is a lie that is told with a convoluted logic that makes you cringe when you think about it, when you let it settle in and mull it over for a few moments.

The pathology of Michelle Obama’s “Great America” goes something like this: she’s a black woman, living in “a house built by slaves”, watching her children play with their dogs on the White House lawn and being driven around by “big men with guns” and so… America is Great already.

You can see why I thought about that TV star in London.

One story of success literally built on the backs of millions of others being oppressed does not a Great Country make. I’m sorry. It just doesn’t work that way.

Perhaps her speech should have been titled “America is Already Great for a Lucky Few Sell Outs Like Myself and My Husband and Everyone Else Should Just Shut Up”
