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.

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.

Hey Daily KOS! Hillary Clinton is a “sell-out corporatist whore oligarch” and banning such language changes nothing

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: As was pointed out by one of the readers, when you click on the Daily Kos link to this article (which is still there, by the way) they load you up with a ton of tracking crap (cookies I guess, but it could be Kos’ old friends at the CIA I suppose) and it will slow your system down to a crawl. It wasn’t that bad when I first read it this morning. Maybe there’s just 20,000 folks over there telling Kos to go fuck himself and that’s doing it. I don’t know, but sorry about that guys.

UPDATE: I guess now at the Daily Kos, folks will be able to help Killary lie all the time about everything, including Bernie’s Medicare For All plan, and no one will call her out on it like they did over here recently. But hey, you got to go with the fascist you got, right Kos?

—–

Is this “ideology shaming”? Is that a new term I just made up? Inquiring minds want to know.

Over at the Daily Kos they have decided to ban their users if they stray from the path of supporting the “sell-out corporatist whore oligarch” Hillary Clinton now they have decided “The Bern” has officially fizzled out. Don’t call her a “warmonger”… don’t do it. Just don’t.

real

Of the things you are not “allowed” to do during the rest of the election cycle, like say Hillary is a “neocon” (which she is, and is, and is again) or a “warmonger” (which she is) or an “oligarch” (Goldman Sachs much?), you are also not allowed too say you wont support her for president or will vote for someone else. Here is part of KOS’ list of bullet points for their new, controlled, echo-chamber of a “news” source:

  • Constructive criticism from the Left is allowed. …  It’s the difference between “We need to put pressure on her to do the right thing on TPP” versus “she’s a sell-out corporatist whore oligarch.” In general, if you’re resorting to cheap sloganeering like “oligarch” or “warmonger” or “neocon”, you might want to reframe your argument in a more substantive, issue-focused and constructive matter. Again, I’m not interested in furthering the Right’s hate-fueled media machine. If that’s what you want, might I suggest Free Republic?…
  • No attacks on Hillary Clinton using right-wing tropes of sources.
  • Saying you won’t vote, or will vote for Trump, or will vote for Jill Stein (or another Third Party) is not allowed.
  • No re-litigating the primary. I  don’t give a shit what Clinton or Sanders said in the primary anymore. It’s over. Move on.
  • Battle “the establishment” where it makes sense… But we pick our battles, and in many places, the establishment will be our allies. Or to paraphrase some dumbfuck, we go to election season with the party we have, not the one we wish we had.

Basically what Kos is doing is saying forget Bernie and what he stood for and by that I mean he’s saying forget how you feel about what you want to represent you and how you want the country to be run in the future. It’s now “sell-out corporatist whore oligarch” Hillary Clinton or nothing, so get used to it.

“YOU’LL TAKE WHAT WE GIVE YOU AND LIKE IT YOU PIECES OF SHIT!!!” Daily Kos (kinda)

The Paris Deal Could Mean The Redemption Of Big Business

(What did I write yesterday? Oh yeah…

Al “Show Me the MONEY!” Gore Says His Grandkids Will Mark This Day (cus they’re going to be RICH)

Goldman Sachs, Walmart and Starbucks… saving the world. You believe that? You’re an idiot.)

by A.C. Kaufman, Huffington Post

Business leaders helped usher in the climate deal…

The historic climate deal announced in Paris on Saturday provides big businesses — long the villains when it comes to any environmental progress — with the economic incentive to transform their operations to be completely powered by clean, renewable energy…

I’m hoping we could see trillions — not just billions — pouring into the low-carbon economy worldwide every year,” Mindy Lubber, president of the sustainability nonprofit Ceres, said in a statement…

In September, an unlikely coalition of corporate giants — including Starbucks, Walmart and Goldman Sachs — announced deadlines by which they plan to be completely powered by renewables….

In the months ahead of the 21st Conference of the Parties — or COP21, as the Paris assembly was hashtagged — a variety of big businesses publicly backed a strong deal

Real News: Protests Erupt in Athens As Greece Approves Eurozone Bailout (video)

In this video, a Greek man (public school teacher) says ( at 2:35 mark) “We have come here to protest the austerity program of the new Greek government. Because it’s an austerity program much of the right wing and they are using the so-called “left wing” government in order to implement the program that they couldn’t do with their right wing and center wing government

Banker Occupied Greece: Requiem for a Failed State

by Steve Lendman

It’s all over but the obituary. Rubber-stamp Greek parliamentarians overwhelming approved transforming the nation into a banker run colony –  by a 229 – 64 vote. Six lawmakers abstained.
Coalition partner Independent Greeks leader Panos Kammenos and likeminded party members voted “yes” after rhetorically rejecting Troika terms.
The vast majority of bailout funding goes to pay bankers and other creditors – nothing for economic recovery and growth. The price is deeper punishing austerity, greater poverty and unemployment than already, and far more human misery ahead with no end in sight.
