#ImWithHerAndDickCheney : The Republicans for Hillary Movement is Growing

by Scott Creighton

Yesterday I wrote since The Donald has become the presumptive nominee of the Grand Old Party for Grandiose Old White Guys, suddenly there were an awful lot of their party members deciding to jump on the Hillary bandwagon.

That trend has grown (groan?) in the last 24 hours.

Mark Salter, a former speechwriter for John McCain, tweeted support for Clinton Tuesday after Trump peddled an unsubstantiated story by the National Enquirer linking Cruz’s father, Raphael Cruz, to John F. Kennedy’s assassination.  In an email to MSNBC, Salter said he considered Clinton “the more conservative choice and the least reckless one.” ”

Jamie Weinstein, senior editor at Tucker Carlson’s conservative news website Daily Caller also suggested he’d support Clinton over Trump, writing an op-ed Wednesday titled, “Hillary Is Preferable To Trump Just Like Malaria Is Preferable To Ebola.””Malaria is curable”

“And in an essay for the Federalist, staunch conservative (and five-time undefeated “Jeopardy” champion) Tom Nichols explained his rationale for supporting Clinton over TrumpAlter Net

Aside from the fact that Hillary is more conservative that the image that Donald Trump is currently projecting, the strategy here is that of the old Hamilton rule which is the same idea many of us had back in 2008 and 2012 when we figured out now President Obama was a neoliberal in liberal clothing.

Frankly, since it’s pretty much a given that the DNC will continue to rig the primaries and install Hillary as the nominee, I would much rather see Donald Trump as the winner in November than her. And it’s very much because of this idea.

#ImWithHerAndDickCheney : Sanders Supporters May Not Vote Hillary, But Republicans Will

by Scott Creighton

Nothing says “moderate progressive liberal” like having far-right wing republicans tipping the scale of your presidential bid.

If Hillary’s fans are worried that the Sanders crowd wont get behind her candidacy this November, they can rest easy knowing that their candidate is also the candidate of the entrenched war-party of the neocons now that Trump is the last man standing after both Ted “The Televangelist” Cruz and John “My Feelings Matter” Kasich have both officially dropped out of the race.

“Were (Trump) to be nominated, conservatives would have two tasks. One would be to help him lose 50 states… (and) confine (Hillary) to a single termGeorge Will, neocon

I have faith that Clinton’s foreign policy would align with what I’m looking for, and she would have my vote.” neocon working for the American Enterprise Institute

#ImWithHerBen Howe

This is apparently a growing trend. Back in April, a Suffolk University poll showed that as many as 19% of the republicans polled said they would vote for Hillary Clinton before voting for Trump. And that was before all these influential neocons were jumping on board with Team Killary!

So don’t worry if the Sandanistas are too liberal to vote for a corporatist, criminal, lying war-monger like Hillary Clinton. The corporatist, criminal lying war-mongers of the other Big Business party will MORE than compensate for the loss.

There you go, Hillary fans! You can now proudly say #ImWithHerAndDickCheney

Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump Share a Tax Haven Address in Delaware (not shocking at all)

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: The majority of the nation has figured out the way they steal elections these days is by rigging the primaries.

“Some of you may have just heard about these disclosures about outrageous tax havens and loopholes and superrich people across the world are exploiting in Panama and elsewhere. We are going after all these scams and make sure everyone pays their fair share here in America.” Hillary “I’m A Republican You Dimwits!” Clinton Pennsylvania AFL-CIO annual Constitutional Convention

The perversion of another Clinton presidency is nearly upon us. The Clinton branch of the “left” side of our one party system (Business Party)  is about to install yet another corrupt crony capitalist sycophant to corporate power in the oval office: Hillary “She’s Still a Republican You Morons” Clinton.

CHEATS 2

In possibly the least shocking “breaking news” story of the year, it turns out, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump (all neoliberal scumbags) share a tax-haven address in Wilmington Delaware for their various shell companies. They use this address to scam millions of dollars in local and state taxes on various business ventures. In the case of Hillary and Slick Willy, it’s to shelter the money they’ve pocketed giving speeches to various Big Banks and financial institutions. In the case of Bill, it’s a repository of his kick-back money he received from various businesses which landed juicy State Department grants.

The level of corruption of the Clintons never ceases to amaze me. Or should I say, the support they still receive from so-called “left leaning” folks in the U.S. never fails to amaze me.

They are the personification of left-cover in every imaginable way… and the “progressives” continue to fall for it… every, single, time.

Insurers set to sharply increase Obamacare premiums

by Kate Randall, WSWS

US health insurance companies are preparing to seek substantial increases in Obamacare premiums, the Hill reported Monday. Citing big losses on the Affordable Care Act marketplaces, many insurers will ask state insurance commissioners to approve double-digit hikes in ACA premiums and some may pull out of the market if they are not approved.

The planned premium hikes are a further exposure of the pro-corporate character of Barack Obama’s signature domestic legislation. Both candidates vying for the Democratic presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, have embraced the ACA as a supposedly progressive health care reform.

In reality, the ACA is designed to funnel increased profits to the private insurance companies. Under the law’s “individual mandate,” those without insurance through a government program or employer must obtain coverage offered by private insurers or pay a penalty. The insurers are demanding a hefty profit as the condition for their participation in the ACA marketplaces.

How Hillary Clinton “Won” New York: Massive Voter Disenfranchisement – In Fact, Syria Has a Freer Democracy than New York

by Scott Creighton

I don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a (state) go (socialist) due to the irresponsibility of its people. The issues are much too important for the (New York) voters to be left to decide for themselves.” Henry Kissinger. long time mentor of Hillary Clinton

If this were Florida 2000, the streets would be lined with outraged Democrats demanding justice for the millions of disenfranchised voters who were deliberately denied their fundamental right to have a say in our democracy.

But this isn’t Florida 2000 and the villain isn’t republican George W. Bush. It’s “progressive” New York and the bad guy is a woman who many Dems think stands a chance at beating either Donald Trump or Ted “the Evangelist” Cruz in November.

So you know what those committed social justice warriors on the left are doing about this round of voter suppression? Nothing. Not a damn thing. They’re keeping their mouths shut, looking the other way and hoping people just stop talking about it before the next primary contest, when it will almost certainly be repeated.

Funny thing is, another little election took place on Tuesday as well and the results of that democratic contest put us to shame by comparison. And drawing a comparison should teach us something. But you know it wont. Because we are the land of the free and home of the brave and everyone wants to be as democratic as we are, right?

The Real Legacy of the Regressive Barack Obama: The Micro-nukes of Pax Americana Unleashed (JFK Wept)

by Scott Creighton

In so many ways since he became president back in early 2008, our “progressive” instrument of “CHANGE” has proven he is certainly not progressive nor did he ever have any desire to “CHANGE” any of the Bush administration policies set in stone before he took office.

The TARP bailouts continued unabated, the Middle Class is still shrinking along with the banking industry, Bush’s Comprehensive Immigration Reform remains a top priority of the Obama administration, our soldiers still fight and die in illegal wars started by “W” and Dick in Iraq and Afghanistan, the national security state continues to expand via assistance from Big Business, drones are still killing more and more dissidents and trouble-makers in our conquered countries across the world, whistle-blowers are prosecuted without mercy at an ever increasing rate, no one is held accountable for war-crimes or corporate crimes here in America and thanks to the work of people like Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, we’ve been able to check off a couple of those “7 countries in 5 years,” that “W” and Dick wanted so badly.

And the corporate Bill of Rights that is the TPP and the TTIP are waiting in the wings for the lame ducks of December.

No, Barack Obama is no JFK. That was just more false advertising.

We Americans should be used to that by now.

When news organizations are allowed to lie to you because it’s considered an exercise of their free speech, the sky’s the limit when it comes to deception. So we shouldn’t be surprised the Marketing Campaign of the Year 2008 turned out to be a total fraud.

Of course, John F. Kennedy was no JFK either. His record certainly doesn’t live up to his mythology if you take the time to study history a little. He continued that little Special Ops unconventional war in Vietnam for quite a while and did his level best to regime change Cuba during his short stint in the Oval Office. He had his little indiscretions, gave top positions to his family members and generally enjoyed being the Left Cover Celebrity King for a while, just like Clinton and Obama after him.

But there is one important difference: he got tired of being lied to by his military advisers and the CIA.

So when those lies nearly brought us to a real nuclear war (not the pretend one the Cold War was all about selling us) … John F. Kennedy became JFK.

And for that, they killed him.

In what is perhaps the most telling difference between the regressive Barack Obama and the progressive version of the latter years of John F. Kennedy, today we have officially entered the New Cold War by removing one of greatest banes of the ruling elite: the fear of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD)
