All Hell Breaks Loose Last Night in New York and Syria So Obama Goes Ahead with Race-baiting Campaign Event for Hillary

by Scott Creighton

priority-1

With bombs going off and being found in New York (8:30pm EST) and an emergency UN Security Council meeting (7:30 pm EST) called to discuss the Pentagon openly attacking the Syrian military yesterday (which killed 63 Syrian soldiers and allowed “ISIS” to surge after the attack) President Obama went forward with his scheduled speech at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation conference in which he angrily instructed black people to get out the vote for Hillary. He told them he would be “insulted” if they didn’t come out for the corrupt war-monger this year like they did for him in 2008 and 2012 when Obama represented the idea of “CHANGE” and supposedly opposed interventionism across the world.

After the initial explosion a second device, a pressure cooker with a phone taped to it, was found. The validity of that device remains in question as it was not detonated at the site but rather taken back to be investigated and it supposedly had a note written on a piece of paper found with it.

Bombs going off in New York city, a possible war unfolding in the Middle East… and Obama’s primary objective is to go out and angrily instruct black people that they need to vote for one of the most disliked war-mongering candidates in the history of American politics? The same candidate who’s previous campaign produced the Birther movement?

Is this a joke?

Nope. No joke.

Looks Like The DNC is Readying the Flock to Replace Hillary with Biden

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: As I said in the article, they are screwed if they try to force Joe Biden on the Dems. Don’t take my word for it…

Hillary’s flailing poll numbers, her constant reveals relating to her various crimes of the past and her sagging health issues are making it seem quite clear that she may have to be removed from the ticket in order for the Goldman Sachs crowd to be happy about their chances in November. To that end, there’s a lot of talk circulating in the media right now on the fringes about Hillary Clinton being replaced by someone at the top of the ticket.

David Shuster started the whole thing off yesterday afternoon with a simple Tweet:

From there the story has spread and it looks like the selection process will be about as democratic as the primary process was:

“Should Mrs Clinton drop out of the race, the DNC would hold a special meeting to vote for a successor. Party rules indicate that a new nominee would be elected by a simple majority vote.” Express UK

Yes, the establishment DNC who cheated Bernie Sanders voters out of their primary pick will be the only ones allowed to have any say in who replaces Killary at the top of the ticket:

“If Hillary Clinton or any other Democratic nominee had to leave the race, the DNC would need to gavel back into session and re-do the process all over again. The DNC consists of more than 200 members, selected by Democrats in all 50 states as well as the chairs and vice chairs of each state party. Except this time, the average Joe rank-and-file Democrat would be shut out; it is the DNC officials that were railed at throughout this year’s campaign who are afforded the power of finding a replacement.  Article III, Section 1, the clause that provides the DNC with that power, is as straightforward as can be: “The Democratic National Committee shall have general responsibility for the affairs of the Democratic Party between National Conventions…This responsibility shall include…filling vacancies in the nominations for the office of President and Vice President.” National Interests blog

Conspiracy Theorists Were Right Again: Something is Seriously Wrong with Hillary Clinton’s Health

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: I guess I was a little late: according to David Shuster, they are considering replacing Hillary Clinton as the nominee.

david-shuster-tweets

It would appear that the Dems have rigged the nomination process once again now stating that if she backs out, then THEY get to have a little vote in their back offices and decide who becomes the nominee instead of it going to Bernie (who actually won the nomination in the first place before they stole it from him)

“Should Mrs Clinton drop out of the race, the DNC would hold a special meeting to vote for a successor. Party rules indicate that a new nominee would be elected by a simple majority vote.” Express UK

The Express article says that Bernie Sanders, Tim Kaine and Joe Biden are the potential candidates to replace Hillary Clinton on the ticket. The only one of that group who had a single vote cast for them during the primary process is Bernie Sanders but according to the article, he’s largely considered the last person in line for the task.

Last week Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post wrote an article titled “Can We Just Stop Talking About Hillary Clinton’s Health Now?“ which I took him to task for on Sept. the 7th. I wrote that the totality of evidence proved that something was seriously wrong with Hillary Clinton’s health and used my own personal experience with similar medical issues to do so.

The vast majority of the MSM attacked anyone who wondered about Hillary Clinton’s health issues claiming were were all “conspiracy theorists” for simply acknowledging what appeared to be serious respiratory issues she was having recently.

Yesterday, Hillary had to leave a ceremony commemorating the events of 9/11 in New York a little early due to what the Clinton camp called an “overheating” episode. The temperature in New York was only 79 degs. She was helped to a waiting vehicle by an aid while holding here chest.

Then, as she was waiting to get into the van, she was clearly being held up by the same aid while leaning on a concrete barricade. When the vehicle door opened for her, she stumbled toward the door and seems to have collapsed before getting in. Her staff kept her from hitting the ground.

Turns out, her doctors now say Hillary had been diagnosed with pneumonia and “was put on antibiotics” on this past Friday.

The Dallas Morning News Endorses the Republican Candidate for President: Hillary Clinton

by Scott Creighton

The Dallas Morning News hasn’t endorsed a Democrat for president since before WWII but they have decided to endorse Hillary Clinton this year and did so with a front page editorial explaining why:

“As President Barack Obama’s first secretary of state, she helped make tough calls on the Middle East and the complex struggle against radical Islamic terrorism. It’s no accident that hundreds of Republican foreign policy hands back Clinton. She also has the support of dozens of top advisers from previous Republican administrations, including Henry Paulson, John Negroponte, Richard Armitage and Brent Scowcroft. Also on this list is Jim Glassman, the founding executive director of the George W. Bush Institute in Dallas.” Dallas Morning News

Their argument is that Donald Trump “is no republican” and I guess by extrapolation that means they figure Hillary Clinton is.

Her foray into the New McCarthyism, her support from various Bush-era war-mongering neocons and of course her love of all things neoliberal makes Hillary Clinton the best republican in the race according to the died in the wool republicans over at the Dallas Morning News. And they should know. They’ve picked republican for over half a century.

I hope before it’s all over, Bernie Sanders has to get on stage to hold up one of Hillary’s arms while Dick Cheney holds up the other one. Maybe then the Berners will know how to vote.

“Decision” 2016! UPDATES Jedi Mind Trick Edition: Hillary Clinton’s Deteriorating Health Issues are NOT the Droids You are Looking For

by Scott Creighton

The Freak-show that is the U.S. presidential election of 2016 never ceases to amaze me in it’s capacity to gloss over the obvious in favor of the contrived.

You don’t see what you actually see. These aren’t the droids you’re looking for. Move on. Nothing to see here. And oh, by the way, McCarthyism is the new black.

Hillary Clinton does not have health issues. That is a conspiracy theory. Anyone who says her health may just be an issue is a sexist, racist, Commie-loving Trotskyite looking to bring America down by siding with Putin, Erdogan and ISIS™.

Neocon Hillary Clinton Channels her Inner Scoop Jackson as She Rants about “American Exceptionalism”

(I modified the title a little)

By Daniel Lazare from Consortium News

Image result for hillary clinton neocon

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the most right-wing presidential candidate of all?

The answer used to be Donald Trump, famous for his naked bigotry toward Mexicans and Muslims. But that was before Hillary Clinton supporters took a page from the old Joe McCarthy handbook and began denouncing their Republican opponent as “an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation” or arguing that criticism of Clinton and NATO somehow emanates out of Moscow.

Now comes Clinton’s speech at an American Legion convention in Cincinnati, her most bellicose to date, in which she savages Trump for failing to embrace the ultra-imperialist doctrine of “American exceptionalism.”

“My opponent in this race has said very clearly that he thinks American exceptionalism is insulting to the rest of the world,” she said Wednesday. “In fact, when Vladimir Putin, of all people, criticized American exceptionalism, my opponent agreed with him, saying, and I quote, ‘if you’re in Russia, you don’t want to hear that America is exceptional.’ Well maybe you don’t want to hear it, but that doesn’t mean it’s not true.”

Good people, she went on, do not take exception to the doctrine – only enemies do.

Selling the Foster “Suicide” to Hillary Haters

by Dave Martin, D.C. Dave

If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way. – Bertrand Russell

We have now come full circle with the latest attempt by the FBI and its favorite shill, Ronald Kessler, to sell the government and press myth that Bill Clinton’s Deputy White House Counsel Vincent W. Foster, Jr., committed suicide because he was depressed. I composed my “Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression,” more than anything, because of my experience with the Foster death case. Number 15, added on August 10, 1999, is “Baldly and brazenly lie,” and it was provoked primarily by the performance of Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes when he looked squarely into the camera and stated in his authoritative baritone, “The forensic evidence shows that the fatal bullet had been fired into Foster’s mouth from the gun found in Foster’s hand and that Foster’s thumb had pulled the trigger.” With that statement he seemed to dispose with the quibbles that his guest, reporter Christopher Ruddy, had with the official suicide findings.

The problem with that statement is that it is flatly false. The forensic evidence shows no such thing. For starters, it could not show that, because the bullet discharged from that gun was never found. On top of that, Foster’s fingerprints weren’t on the gun.

“They wouldn’t just lie to us like that, would they?” you might be thinking, but they would and they do. The mainstream press is bad about it, but the FBI is consistently as bad or worse. Their specialty is lying about what they are told by witnesses when the witness testimony is not consistent with the conclusion they want to reach. They can get by with it easily because they don’t record the testimony electronically, using only handwritten notes, which they then transcribe in final typed form, and the witnesses are not permitted to review those notes for accuracy.

That is the primary way that they were able to perpetuate the myth that lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald killed President John F. Kennedy and they have used the same technique in the Foster case, the primary example being their falsification of witness Patrick Knowlton’s testimony. Now, in the wake of candidate Donald Trump’s observation earlier in the year in an interview by the primary salesman of the suicide story from the beginning, The Washington Post, that there was something “fishy” about Foster’s death, the FBI has trotted out a real whopper that a lot of people might well be buying, in accordance with the Bertrand Russell dictum.

After Trump’s statement about Foster in May, the London tabloid Daily Mail in early June ran a sensational article by American journalist and author Ronald Kessler in which he wrote that two FBI agents, Jim Clemente and Coy Copeland, said that Hillary Clinton had “humiliated [Foster] in front of White House staff one week before his death.” It was that incident, Kessler strongly implies, that pushed the depressed Foster over the brink and resulted in his taking his on life.
