New York Times, Priorities USA and Rachel Maddow Collude to Distract Media and Liberals from Hillary’s Nevada Convention Theft

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Turns out, MSNBC’s parent company, NBC Universal and their owner, Comcast, both donated to the Clinton Global(ist) Initiative in recent years. MSNBC is Rachel’s network. Carlos Slim, largest stakeholder in the New York Times, is also a donor to the CG(ist)I having given them something like 5 million bucks.

The following is not news to anyone who’s been paying attention to this election cycle for any time span greater than 20 minutes or so. What is interesting though is seeing just how obvious this shit is when you step back a few feet and look at it objectively. I mean, you really have to squint your eyes and put the blinders on to miss this one.

The Rachel Maddow Show should be forced to register as a Hillary Clinton Super-PAC. The New York Times should change their motto to “All the News the Clintons Say is Fit to Print”. And Priorities USA, a Clinton Super-PAC dedicated to doing the good work of the globalist financial elite this election cycle, need to hire at least one creative director if they plan to spend 130 million dollars on pro-Killary ads in the next 6 months because their first two infomercials just plain suck.

Why am I pointing out all of this at this moment, way too early on Tuesday morning, May 17th, 2016? Let’s look at the time frame.

Recently, every talking head making suggestions for Hillary’s campaign regarding how to get beyond her dwindling approval ratings in the polls has said they need to focus on demonizing Trump as much as possible. Terrify their base, is the basic plan to get folks to come out and support the unpopular war-criminal and globalist shill, Hillary Clinton.

What you are about to see is how the Clinton machine did just that at precisely the moment they had to in order to kill a story that would have driven her likeability ratings within her own party even further down the toilet.

Obama’s Next Neoliberal Regime Change: Venezuela president declares emergency, cites U.S., domestic ‘threats’

from Reuters

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro declared a 60-day state of emergency on Friday due to what he called plots from within the OPEC country and the United States to topple his leftist government.

Maduro did not provide details of the measure. A previous state of emergency, implemented in states near the Colombian border last year, suspended constitutional guarantees in those areas, except for guarantees relating to human rights.

Earlier on Friday, U.S. intelligence officials told reporters they were increasingly worried about the potential for an economic and political meltdown in Venezuela and predicted Maduro was not likely to complete his term.

Venezuela’s opposition is seeking to recall the unpopular leader, 53, amid a worsening crisis that includes food and medicine shortages, frequent power cuts, sporadic looting and galloping inflation.

But the former union leader and bus driver has vowed to stick out his term, and accuses the United States of fomenting an undercover coup against him. He pointed to this week’s impeachment of fellow leftist Dilma Rousseff in Brazil as a sign that he is next.

“Washington is activating measures at the request of Venezuela’s fascist right, who are emboldened by the coup in Brazil,” Maduro said during a Friday night broadcast on state television.

Bernie Wins West Virginia as Rancor for the Proletariat Builds

by Scott Creighton

These are the times that try men’s souls.” Thomas Paine

The fear of the dictatorship of the proletariat is real.

Bernie Sanders won the West Virginia primary yesterday by a rather large percentage, something like 51% to 36%. It’s significant because Hillary Clinton won that primary in 2008.

Bernie didn’t cut much into Hillary’s delegate count lead though. Officially, he garnered 16 delegates while Hillary took home 11 but Wikipedia claims he took 18 of the pledged delegates while she took 11. The Wiki page goes on to show that she got 6 of the 7 unpledged delegates (or Superdelegates) meaning the overall account was 19 to 17. A difference of 2 delegates.

Overall the pledged delegate count currently stands at 1,716 to 1,430, a difference of 286. The Superdelegates are the real problem though with Hillary holding 523 to his paltry 39. Superdelegates are establishment party insiders who are there to make sure a real populist doesn’t rise from the ranks of the lefties to run the country. They were motivated to create this rigged system after a peanut farmer from Georgia moved into the White House.

Can’t have that in the land of the free and home of the brave.

Kentucky and Oregon are next week and it looks as though Bernie may win every contest this month with the exception of Guam and that would be a big deal. But not in the minds of the talking heads.

I’ve noticed a trend developing in the media right now with all these establishment cheerleaders pretending to be journalists saying that West Virginia was expected to ‘fall” to Bernie because of high poverty rate and Hillary’s various comments about the coal industry dying off.

Bernie supporters, as well as Trump supporters, are routinely being relegated to the ranks of “disgruntled globalization losers” who are bitter about not being included in the great free-market love-fest the millionaire TV personalities are enjoying right now. Surely it wont be long before they start talking about how all us proles are going to mess up a good thing for the rest of the country as their fear of the dictatorship of the proletariat boils within them.

Dissecting a Few of Hillary Clinton’s Most Recent Lies and Evaluating What They Tell Us About Her

by Scott Creighton

I was watching CNN’s town hall meeting with the candidates from the Democrat side of the Washington Consensus last night when Hillary Clinton was asked about rising insurance premiums by a woman from Ohio (that’s where the town hall meeting took place)

The questioner informed Hillary that she used to pay $400+ a month for insurance for herself and her family through a private company prior to the passage of ObamaCare and now she is forced to pay over $1,100 for the same coverage. She wanted to know specifically what Hillary would do to tackle the rising costs of insurance premiums.

Hillary answered her by telling her ObamaCare has done “great things” for the country, but yes, they have to do something about the costs. She focused on the pharmaceutical industry saying they had to get them to keep the costs down and that would bring down the prices of everything else.

This is a ridiculous assumption. It’s magical thinking.

If the price of pharmaceuticals decreases all that will happen is the insurance companies will generate more profits and find new reasons to justify jacking up the price of premiums for all their mandated customers.

Then Hillary went on to promote the federal ObamaCare exchange website, telling the woman she should do more research and saying she thought she could find less expensive coverage… if she took the time to look.

Talk about blaming the victim.

Hillary Clinton’s support for the fascist, mandated insurance program called “ObamaCare” is well documented. Also well documented now after her answer to that woman, is the utter disregard she has for working class women and mothers who are struggling to cope with the rising costs (and rising profit margins) of the insurance policies themselves.

Hillary pledged to “work” when she gets into office to get the co-pays and deductibles down a bit and reign in the pharmaceutical companies but she never said a word about going after the main perpetrators in this fascist fiasco, the insurance companies themselves.

Hillary thought that was a good answer. The response from the crowd was less than enthusiastic.

You shouldn’t expect Hillary to do or say anything else on this subject. She’s been serving the interests of Big Insurance for decades.

Take for example a recent lie she told about Bernie Sanders regarding her own efforts back in ’93 to pass what she has called “HillaryCare”

This particular lie, along with another she told this past weekend, illuminates the kind of human being she really is and it exposes why it is that better informed voters usually support Bernie over Hillary.

Should I Shut Up About the Known Unknowns: Greater Kurdistan and the “Revolution™”?

by Scott Creighton

(Please pardon the stream of conscience rant. It happens sometimes.)

NEW map

This is what baffles my mind. It’s why I lay awake at night, wondering about where this will all lead and why the hell I’m still doing what I do.

Chris Hedges recently wrote about how he sees himself on occasion and I thought how perfect it was as a description of where I am most days:

“I spoke three years ago to the sparsely attended state gathering of the Green Party in New Jersey. I felt as if I was a character in Mario Vargas Llosa’s novel “The Real Life of Alejandro Mayta.” In the novel, Mayta, a naive idealist, endures the indignities of the tiny and irrelevant warring sects of the Peruvian left. He is reduced to meeting in a garage with seven self-described revolutionaries who make up the RWP(T)—the Revolutionary Workers’ Party (Trotskyist)—a splinter group of the marginal Revolutionary Worker’s Party. “Stacked against the walls,” Llosa writes, “were piles of Workers Voice and handbills, manifestos and statements favoring strikes or denouncing them which they had never got around to handing out.” Chris Hedges

Sometimes I feel as if I’m a tiny little ant, a misguided Learesque ant, raging against a tempest of change that I have no hope of stopping, taking comfort in the act of resistance for resistance’s sake and for nothing more. My work hides with the dusty fliers in the corner while the “Revolution™” is televised daily to massive critical acclaim.

Willy Loman remains an apt analogy.

Donald Trump’s “Progressive” Tax Plan Perfectly Illustrates the Role His Candidacy is Designed to Perform: Get Jeb Elected

by Scott Creighton

“I’m not a populist,” Trump said. “No, I’m not. I’m a man of great common-sense.” That’s one way to put it. But judging by his supply-side (trickle down) tax proposal, conventional Republican is another. The Atlantic

Donald Trump (“The Donald”) has finally released his tax plan after much ado. He created a ton of free publicity for it by hinting at it’s content over the last few weeks with every opportunity he had. The Donald claimed it would make the folks on Wall Street “hate him” but that, sayeth The Donald, was OK because he’s a man of “common sense”, a man of the people.

Fact is, now that his plan has been released, the only real big winners in it are Big Business and the Super Wealthy… and of course, people like The Donald.

The big loser would be the government. His plan would bankrupt Uncle Sam like a Donald Trump run business in record time, the deficit would rise off the charts like a lying Al Gore on a high-low in his global warming movie. That of course would force another “crisis” and result in the decimation of still more public services and the austerity hawks would be served.

In short, in spite of The Donald’s appeal to a growing segment of the republican voters who are rejecting the “business as usual” neocon/neo-liberal elements of the established Republican Guard here in ‘Merika!, fact is, The Donald himself is nothing more than a sheepdog looking to bring those wayward voters of the Red State flock back into the warm and fuzzy fold of Reaganomic Trickle-Down ideology.

More specifically, The Donald’s tax plan is nothing more than a slightly revised version of Jeb Bush’s unpopular tax plan. So what The Donald is doing is helping Jeb normalize his image to the republican base.

Understanding The Refugee “Crisis” of 2015 (or… Enter the “Refugee Truther”)

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Germany is demanding Facebook help their efforts by removing posts that are critical of their efforts to demand refugees are accepted across Europe

“German Justice Minister Heiko Maas wants Facebook Inc. to remove racist posts targeting asylum seekers after several attacks on refugee camps in Germany over the past week.”

———–

At a time when everyone was being told we had to STOPKONY from killing all the children, I and a few others braved the rampages of the online thought police and wrote the truth about the fraudulent propaganda campaign. It didn’t take long for the leader of that particular marketing campaign to wind up naked and high as a kite on the side of the road and as a result, his astroturfing campaign subsequently crashed into the rocky shoreline. Yet the campaign to recolonize Africa continues to this day unfortunately.

By the same token, a few days after alleged shooting of Malala, when we were being told we HAD to “LOVE MALALA!” or else, I and a few others were writing about the ridiculousness of the story and I even went so far as to suggest it was all about pushing an agenda of global for-profit charter school systems which would serve the interests of the masters of the universe in many, many ways. Turns out, with her fake little scar and her fake Peace Prize, Malala is busy spending her days running around promoting global for-profit charter school systems that will teach poor kids around the world of the wonders of Westernized neoliberal, free market ideology. She now lives in London of course.

Do I even need to mention the “Snowden truthers” and the scores of “alternative” truth-tellers like Dave Lindorff who attacked us for simply investigating and writing the truth about what was really going on? Do I need to mention the “Freedom” Act and the privatization of the surveillance state which is what I said the “Snowden” psyop was all about from the start?

How about the American Gladio campaign, which is apparently still going on today. Or the fake “ISIS” threat always showing up in nations Barack Obama needs to bomb into (or BACK into) submission?

Contrary to how it might appear, I’m not patting myself on the back, though I know my detractors will say I am.

What I am doing is pointing out that whenever a major agenda unfolds, whenever the “crisis” in support of that agenda takes shape, for one reason or another, you can always count on a certain measure of “truth-tellers” to get on board with the official narrative (at least in principle if not in totality) in the early stages of the effort and in recent years there have been very few programs bigger in scope and reach than the recolonization of Africa, the global for-profit “education” of third world populations and the fascist privatization of the surveillance state. Yes, they need to strip US citizens of certain constitutional rights and they need to do that on a very selective basis, hence “common sense” gun legislation via “mental hygiene” laws. And they need an ever shifting continuous threat for the long war, the endless war, the covert drone strike war at all places at all times. Thus, fake mass casualty events and fake beheading videos. But don’t let certain “truth-tellers” hear you speak about those.

That’s kinda like asking certain “truthers” what hit the Pentagon or what happened to the 80 or so security camera videos the FBI took from surrounding locations minutes after the attack.

Today, there is another “crisis” brewing and a number of “truth-tellers” don’t want to go anywhere near the truth of the matter. But I will. Because that is what I do.

So let’s talk about the sanctified story of the “refugee crisis” and how it’s being used for a number of various globalist agendas.

Who says it’s being used for globalist agendas? Well they do of course. You just have to know where to look.
