The unDemocratic National Committee Convention Starts Tomorrow: LET’S GET READY TO RUMMMMMBLE!!!

by Scott Creighton

For those of you who read my RNC convention coverage, you might recall I was a little critical of it. I was critical of the ham-handed sappy WWE emotionalism they tried to provoke. I was critical of the deliberate missteps they took in order to shoot themselves in the foot at every turn. I was critical of their “CHANGE” candidate basically voicing his support for the Washington Consensus policies that created his base in the first place. I was critical of it with good reason.

But don’t be confused. I’m not one of these HillaryBots running around saying The Donald is Satan 2.0

Today over at the fake-left Huffington Post, they have a piece linked from Murdoch’s Washington Post written by chess grand master Garry Kasparov talking about how much Donald Trump reminds him of the other great boogie-man in the world today, Vladamir Putin.

One should remember Garry Kasparov backed the Ukraine color revolution… including all those damn neo-Nazis killing protesters and Ukrainian police officers on behalf of Barack Obama’s (and Hillary Clinton’s) regime change operation.

So no, I’m not in that camp. My criticism of the RNC event was based in reality, not breathless fear-mongering hyperbole like that put out there by Killary shills.

That said, I also wrote that the upcoming unDemocratic Party convention was going to make the RNC coming out party look like an episode of Kaptain Kangaroo by comparison.

And I do not disappoint, now do I?

Trumpapalooza? DonaldMania? StuperSlam2016? No Joy in Mudville

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Question – Does anyone else think that Donald Trump is paying for his son’s future political career by throwing this election to Killary? Because the Donald Trump Jr. show last night had a very odd Obama 2004 feel to it, did it not?

Nothing of any consequence has taken place so far at the Republican National Convention this year apart from the most unpopular candidate in modern history being selected to run against an equally unpopular candidate from the “Democratic” side in the general election. At least the Dems can say, and accurately, that their disliked and distrusted pick stole the nomination. The Republicans, well, they did this to themselves.

It has been said by smarter people than myself that the only candidate that Donald Trump could beat would be Hillary Clinton and that the only Republican Hillary Clinton could beat is Donald Trump. Perhaps that explains why Hillary was allowed to steal the nomination from Sanders supporters and why she has been given a pass from the Justice Department, the State Department and the International Criminal Court (all of whom have more than enough reason and evidence to bring her up on charges).

Donald once joked that he could shoot someone on 5th Ave. in broad daylight and his idiot supporters would still back him. That’s a lovely sentiment in the abstract, but he has nothing on what Hillary has actually done and gotten away with. She giggled about her proxie army shoving a knife up the rectum of a beloved national leader and her brain-dead zombiefied followers still view her as some kind of “peacemaker” because she “negotiated a ceasefire” in Gaza after the IDF finally ran out of ammunition to fire at Palestinian women and children.

Let me just say this right off the bat: Trump’s job is to secure the White House for Hillary Clinton which is not that different from what Bernie Sanders’ job became in the final stages of his campaign. He was supposed to bring the real left back into the Hillary camp that is populated by the “Republican Lite” class of Dems while Trump’s job is to alienate as many factions of the Republican party as possible and serve as the “worse of two evils” option that scares Dems into holding their noses.

Sheepdog Bernie Set to Endorse the Wicked Witch of the West Today. VOTE CTHULHU!!!

by Scott Creighton

It’s been a long primary season this year and the term “disappointed” hardly covers the emotion most voters are feeling in this country on both sides of the artificial divide.

The New York Times is reporting that “the revolution appears to be ending with a whisper rather than a roar” while MSNBC headline says it all: Bernie Sanders to Finally Endorse Hillary Clinton

The Clinton team decided to make Bernie grovel before the master in a state which he won by 22%. A state that doesn’t use Hillary’s favorite method of voting, unverifiable electronic machines. Also see this and this and this and this and this and this.

According to most analysts, Bernie is supposed to be “handing over” the progressives, populists and young voters of the Democratic Party that Hillary and her centrist Business Party ideology couldn’t win on her own. Whether or not that will end happening is for time to tell. My guess is… not.

Hillary Clinton Says “Shred those votes FOR DEMOCRACY and such!”

by Scott Creighton

Back when I was covering the theft of the California primary by Hillary Clinton and her regiment of neoliberal DNC (New Dems) globalist sycophants, I said we should keep an eye out for those office document shredding trucks pulling up to the polling sites before all the provincial ballots have been counted. I can’t remember which article that was in, but I remember writing it. I’m getting old I guess and I don’t have much time this morning unfortunately.

Well, I thought I was joking. I thought there was no way anyone would steal an election in such an obvious manner (here, here, here, here, here) and then try to get away with it in an even MORE OBVIOUS way… however…

I forgot I was dealing with the kind of system that turns a blind eye to the husband of a suspected criminal under investigation hanging out with the US Attorney General on her private plane for a half hour the day before the Benghazi report came out.

I forgot I was dealing with a family with such strong ties to neoliberal globalization that the State Department would go to the trouble of filing for a court order to keep certain potentially damning emails from public view for the next 27 months… allowing for Hillary to make it into the White House (emails relate to her time as Sec. of State and the Clinton Global(ist) Initiative)

You know, sometimes a funny thing happens on the way to being funny.

Turns out, it ain’t that funny after all.

The Tale of Two Benghazi Reports: The Shillin for Killary Never Ends

by Scott Creighton

The shillin for Killary Clinton never ends. “So let’s make her president” says the fascist arm of the New Dem “left”

When Rep. Elijah Cummings wasn’t sitting on the floor in congress fighting for the New Dems’  fascist “no buy no fly” secret list building legislation that strips citizens of their constitutional rights via secret evidence considered by arbitrary panels in the “Justice” Department, he was sitting on his fat ass in the House Select Committee on Benghazi as the leading member of the minority party and therefore the Chief White-washer and Brand Defender of his presidential choice, darling champion of the working man, Hillary Clinton.

The republicans of the Select Committee announced they were finally going to release the results of their two year study today, Tuesday, June 28th.

So to offset the effects of that release, sycophant to power Elijah Cummings released the “minority report” from the Democrats late yesterday, which though unofficial, promises to provide enough covering energy for Killary long enough to distract those who wish to be distracted until this new Killary Crime blows over.

Though Elijah says the republican version is nothing more than “partisan politics”, his report is packed full of partisan headings like these:

  • Secretary Clinton Never Personally Denied Security Requests
  • Secretary Clinton was Active and Engaged
  • Terrorists Caused Attacks in Benghazi Not US Foreign Policy
  • Unsubstantiated Claim that Documents Were Scrubbed
  • Unsubstantiated Claim that CIA Shipped Arms From Libya to Another Country
  • No Evidence Talking Points Politicized

Aside from the fact that there are literally piles of evidence which suggest Rep. Cummings and anyone else who prepared this minority report are lying through their teeth about much of these statements, fact is, we wont really know how much evidence there SHOULD BE because the criminal and neoliberal war-monger Hillary Clinton ERASED 30,000 OFFICIAL STATE DEPARTMENT EMAILS before turning over a carefully screened selection of what she said were “all” of them.

That being said about the Cummings/New Dem cover-up for the fascist Clinton State Department days, there are already tid-bits from the Republican version of the commission findings making their way to the public domain already and the picture they paint, though not vastly different than the white-wash presented by their opposition, is still quite damning in it’s own right.

Betraying Progressives, DNC Platform Backs Fracking, TPP, and Israel Occupation

by Lauren McCauley, Common Dreams

Despite its claims to want to unify voters ahead of November’s election, the Democratic party appears to be pushing for an agenda that critics say ignores basic progressive policies, “staying true” to their Corporate donors above all else.

During a 9-hour meeting in St. Louis, Missouri on Friday, members of the DNC’s platform drafting committee voted down a number of measures proposed by Bernie Sanders surrogates that would have come out against the contentious Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), fracking, and the Israeli occupation of Palestine. At the same time, proposals to support a carbon tax, Single Payer healthcare, and a $15 minimum wage tied to inflation were also disregarded.

In a statement, Sanders said he was “disappointed and dismayed” that representatives of Hillary Clinton and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schulz rejected the proposal on trade put forth by Sanders appointee Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), despite the fact that the presumed nominee has herself come out against the 12-nation deal.

Mr. Revolution Bernie Sanders Enthusiastically Says He’ll Vote for Hillary: I Got One Message for him

by Scott Creighton

The other night while doing an interview on Tom Kiely’s show along with Wayne Madsen I told Tom that I felt there was no real difference between Trump and Clinton in terms of their support for neoliberal global economic ideology but the big difference between the two of them was that all the fear-mongering about what Trump “might” do in terms of aggression on the world stage as a president, Hillary Clinton has already done as Secretary of State. She’s a known commodity of war-mongering and state-sponsored murder-for-profit while the take on him is purely speculative. And to that end I said if I had to, if I thought it would keep Killary out of office, then I would vote for Donald Trump. If I had to.

This morning Bernie Sanders was asked a direct question with no qualifiers attached: will you vote for Hillary Clinton in November?

His answer was an unequivocal and enthusiastic sounding “YES”

I got a message for Mr. Revolution. It’s in code so you have to pay attention.
