By registering as a Democrat, I get my first chance today to vote against Hillary Clinton today and again in November. Hopefully, I am not alone.



Digging deep into Hillary's connections to Wall Street, Abby Martin reveals how the Clinton's multi-million-dollar political machine operates. 

This episode chronicles the Clinton's rise to power in the 90s on a right-wing agenda, the Clinton Foundation's revolving door with Gulf state monarchies, corporations and the world's biggest financial institutions, and the establishment of the hyper-aggressive "Hillary Doctrine" while Secretary of State. Learn the essential facts about the great danger she poses, and why she's the US Empire's choice for its next CEO.

    1. The system is so rigged against Sanders, it will take a political miracle for him to overcome the fix installed by our rulers and masters in Washington.

      Trump is tying the equally corrupt Republicans into knots but adding a little humor with the Cruz and Katich farce.

    2. Republican presidential hopefuls Ted Cruz and John Katich announced a joint plan to prevent Donald Trump from securing the nomination.

      The two agreed to concede some races in order to secure victories over Trump. In Indiana, Trump will only face Cruz, and in Oregon and New Mexico, Trump will only face Kasich. Donald Trump immediately fired back, calling the agreement "collusion" and a sign of "desperation." Cruz and Kasich hope that the strategy will prevent Trump from obtaining the 1,237 delegates needed to win an absolute majority before the Republican convention in Cleveland. In other campaign news, the 35 thousand-member United Electrical Workers Union says it is endorsing Sanders. Union members decided on the endorsement in an unanimous membership vote. More than 100 national and local unions, representing over 1.5 million workers, have so far endorsed Sanders. In an exclusive interview with The Real News, Bernie Sanders says that he would support a federally-funded jobs program [SOT].

  4. 83 members of the US Senate are urging President Obama to increase US military aid to Israel to over three billion dollars per year.

    The demand came in the form of a letter to Obama calling for the boost to aid for the period between 2018 and 2027. Israel is asking the Obama administration to increase military aid from the current three billion to at least four billion per year. An agreement is expected before Obama leaves office early next year. The Obama administration has suggested that it is willing to increase aid to 3.7 billion dollars per year. 32 Democrats joined all Republicans in signing the letter to Obama.

    Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was not among them.

      1. No problem with your speaking of healthcare.

      2. On alternative energy, the ball is rolling and won't be reversed regardless of who is elected especially given that we are likely to have another split government. However, the biggest reason: I am no fan of Koch, however, regardless of his reasons for saying it, he spoke truth when he said he favors Hillary because he doesn't trust either Trump OR Hillary to actually do what they are saying now. In other words, the only reason she moved left is because of Sanders, every stance she is taking at the moment is politically motivated, she is a pathological liar.

      3. The book is still out on the minimum wage. California should tell the tale.

As a matter of fact, the only time she touches on them is after Sanders has. I just think she's phony and a fake, saying what ever is needed to get elected.

    I wonder what Quirk, the experienced advertising man and marketeer, would think of this -


    It’s a mixed bag.

    A psychological warfare principle that was once equated with magic says that the power to name a thing is the power to control or destroy it.

    I believe this applies only to those who lack the ability to see through the bullshit. We see it applied every day in the news and DOD reports where euphemisms and dysphemisms abound, kinetic engagement, extraordinary rendition, enhanced interrogation, the use of ‘element’ to describe a person, and it goes on and on. There are even more used in politics such as calling a reduction in deficit spending as a ‘savings’.

    The ‘nine second’ rule?

    Hogshead stresses that while you can't find true romance, land a job, or by implication sell an idea in nine seconds, you have roughly this long to earn the chance to make your case.

    Not sure. No doubt first impressions are important but nine seconds? I kind of doubt it.


    This brings us to a second principle of effective propaganda. The propaganda must first fascinate the viewer, but it must also assure the Propaganda Man of its honesty.

    The instant we lie to the Propaganda Man, we deserve to lose his trust and his respect, and I personally resent dishonest memes that attack even political figures I dislike. The memes seek to get me to make myself look foolish by forwarding them, and thus making myself a party to the falsehoods.


    I agree with this 100%.

    This is why I disagree with you and yours so often. Example…

    I actually agree with you that we currently have a clash of civilizations in the world, that it goes back millennia but for the past 1400 years is most clearly seen in the clash between Islam and Christianity.

    However, it is not only religion that is the reason for the clash. It is also a clash between cultures, mores, and values that have developed over the centuries, a clash of ideas and ideals, east versus west.

    Also, there is a third factor, secularism, something that has grown in importance over the last 300 years.

    The clash of civilizations we speak of now includes not only Christianity and Islam but also Secularism.

    [Secularism’s effect on the Western world is an interesting subject that probably would turn a bit heated if explored further here.]

    However, back to the point, propaganda. While I can accept the macro argument of a clash of civilizations, I can’t accept the faulty arguments and creative history you present here. For the most part it is bullshit and bubblegum.

    I reject your arguments on the basis of…

    1. You fail to recognize the difference between the European and the American experience.
    2. Your fears are exaggerated.
    3. The history you present is verifiably false.
    4. The solutions you offer are goofy and impractical.

    Which gets us back to…

    This brings us to a second principle of effective propaganda. The propaganda must first fascinate the viewer, but it must also assure the Propaganda Man of its honesty.

  19. We're all old enough to have lived through a lot of minimum wage increases. I'm not particularly against it but I do know enough now to know in the long run it's not going to make much difference.

    Burgers will go up, prices at the retail outlets will go up, rents will go up, only gas is unaffected.

    It's be a wash in the long run, the more minimum wage increased will be proposed.

  24. Lena Dunham may have just locked up the nomination for Donald Trump


    posted at 4:01 pm on April 26, 2016 by Jazz Shaw

    Since politics as we used to know it is apparently dead and gone, what the heck? We may as well dive into this story. You’re probably already at least somewhat familiar with actress Lena Dunham of Girls fame and her unabashed lurch into the world of politics. She’s a major Hillary Clinton supporter and has done her level best to raise money for her and push the young folks toward electing the historic First Female President. But now she may be inadvertently influencing conservatives around the nation and giving GOP frontrunner Donald Trump one last push toward the finish line. How? Well… she’s offering a very tasty reward if you agree to support the Manhattan business mogul. (The Hill)


    Lena Dunham promises to move to Canada if Trump wins

    “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” Dunham told Andy Cohen at the Matrix Awards on Monday.

    “I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”

    Never one to miss a cue on social media, Trump jumped on that bandwagon with lightning speed.


    Not only would Donald Trump not mind if certain celebrities flee the United States upon his election, the Republican front-runner said Tuesday that their opposition to his candidacy only increases his will to win.

    During a telephone interview with “Fox & Friends,” Trump was asked about a tweet from Lena Dunham on Monday in which she vowed to leave the U.S. for Vancouver if he is elected president.

    Trump’s response: “Well, she’s a B-actor. You know, she has no — you know, no mojo.”

    “I heard Whoopi Goldberg too. That would be a great thing for our country,” Trump said, as the show flashed a graphic of celebrities who it said would leave the U.S. for Canada, including Dunham, Jon Stewart, and Rosie O’Donnell, with whom the Manhattan real-estate mogul has feuded for years.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Trump went on to refer to it as a “great service to our country” if he managed to drive Dunham to the Great White North. Perhaps she’ll share a moving van with Whoopi, Rosie and Jon Stewart. But is she serious? More to the point, are any of the people who threaten such a move every single election actually serious? Just last month NPR published a rather informal study on the subject and concluded that it actually does happen, but pinning down how widespread the phenomenon is turns out to be essentially impossible.


      But is there ever a mass movement? Kind of. Maybe. It depends on what you mean by “mass,” really.

      We know. It’s a crappy answer. But it’s a tough question to answer because the Canadian government has data on how many people move there, but not on why they move. When asked the “I’m moving after this election” question, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada sent NPR data on Americans who gain permanent residency status in Canada (gaining permanent residency is a necessary step toward gaining Canadian citizenship).

      So there were spikes in Canadian immigration in the 24 to 32 month period following both the 2000 and 2008 elections. (It takes that long for most applications to be processed.) Does that mean people were fleeing the new administration and the impending implosion of America? Some of them, but we’ll never know how many. And the odds of liberals actually doing it seems to be considerably higher because Canada is a more liberal country than the United States to begin with. Conservatives moving there won’t find much relief.

      There’s also the economic factor to be considered. Somebody like Dunham or the other celebrities on the anti-Trump list can afford to drop everything and move their studio productions to Vancouver. For the average worker it’s not quite so simple. Still… you stick by your guns, Lena Dunham. We’ll all admire you for your principles and wish you the best in your new home country.

  25. Little-known LA police/fire retirement plan pays pension, salary at same time

    "DROP" stands for Deferred Retirement Option Plan. LAPD and L.A. Fire Department personnel who've worked for at least 25 years and are at least 50 years old can "retire," then go back to work immediately. When they return to work, pension payments are held while they continue collecting a salary, and after five years, they can leave and collect that money in a lump-sum payment.

    By postponing their retirement for five years, they accumulate pension payments (which are also collecting interest) and wages simultaneously.
    ===
    One fire chief collected a $900,000 lump sump through this program. Deputy police chief Mark Leap participated in the program and, after five years, received a lump sum of $700,000 while also collecting his police salary during that five years.

    Leap said it allowed him to continue to make contributions, while also giving him a nest egg for his retirement. Leap described it as a win-win for both himself and the city.

    Since the program began, there's been no serious audit done of cost benefits and whether the program as a whole is cost neutral.
    ===
    Many current city officials haven't taken a stance on the program yet, but they're likely to support it due to the strength of the police and fire unions. No politician who wants to get voted into anything else is likely to go up against the unions on such a popular program.

      I don't think the LA deal is anything unusual. I knew a lot of guys who would retire and then hire back in on the same job as a contract employee.

      What is unusual, IMO, is that the fire chief is collecting $225,000 a year in pension benefits. The last I heard, LA is a public municipality, not a Goldman Sachs.

  28. Why haven’t hackers taken down the power grid?

    The answer, it turns out, is nearly as complicated as the systems themselves. Geopolitical tensions, limitations and redundancies in critical infrastructure hardware, and network vulnerabilities actually make it hard to take down the power grid.

    Hacker motivations are another factor.

    “Taking down major infrastructure on a national or regional level harms the bad guys as much as the good guys,” says Richard Forno, director of the Graduate Cybersecurity Program at the University of Maryland at Baltimore County. “The Russians [could] shut down the power grid. But if they shut it down, they won’t be able to track us.” (Please explain, I don't get it.)

    “If you don’t want to be eaten by lions,” Forno says, “don’t walk into the lion’s den with steaks taped over your body.”

  30. Hahne Estates Winery

    Gary proudly told of his Opa and parents with many stories of how they would hold parties at LBJ Ranch for the President including barbecues for 850 people and five Presidents. As a child he even stirred the peach ice cream for a week to prepare for one party. Gary will show you photos of his parents boarding Air Force One with President Johnson for a trip to the White House in Washington, D.C. and letters from the First Lady, “Lady Bird” Johnson, sent to the Hahne family. It is definitely an incredible collection that Gary has collected and you could spend a long time just listening to the stories.

    Unfair Advantage:
    Back to the wine, Gary explained how his Opa taught him at five years old how to make wine including some tips that he still uses today in the Hahne Estates wine. The logo for the winery is a rooster because the last name of Hahne (pronounced Hah-knee) means rooster in German.

  31. “The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others... We are different from all the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we're doing... Power is not a means, it is an end… The object of power is power... Always there will be the intoxication of power... We are the priests of power… Power is power over human beings, over the body; but above all over the mind... The real power; the power we have to fight for night and day is not power over things but over men."

    "We shall crush you down to the point from which there is no coming back... Never again will you be capable of ordinary human feeling; everything will be dead inside you... You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty and then we shall fill you with ourselves… The more the party is powerful the less it will be tolerant; the weaker the opposition the tighter the despotism... Always we shall have the heretic at our mercy, screaming with pain, broken up, contemptible; and in the end utterly penitent, saved from himself, crawling to our feet of his own accord. That is the world that we are preparing… If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever.”

    US military used Israeli 'roof knock' tactic in Iraq to warn civilians before bombing

    WASHINGTON - The United States borrowed an Israeli military tactic known as "roof knocking" to try to warn civilians before it dropped a bomb targeting Islamic State fighters in Iraq this month

    The Israeli military used such "roof knocks" in the 2014 operation in Gaza

    Ah yes. The world's most MORAL army teaches America once again...

    3. quirk you are SUCH a troll

      After the Israeli disengagement from Gaza, when making arrests on the ground were close to impossible, IDF started using destruction of military infrastructure as deterrent to not attack Israeli targets. The IDF sought a method to minimize harm to Gaza civilians.[9] As early as 2006 the IDF had the practice of warning the inhabitants of a building that was about to be attacked.[10] Roof knocking was used during the 2008–2009 Gaza War, Operation Pillar of Defense in 2012, and Operation Protective Edge in 2014. In the six months prior to its use, Israel collected data on Hamas members, which they used to issue warnings.[4] Typically, Israeli intelligence officers and Shin Bet security servicemen contacted residents of a building in which they suspected storage of military assets and told them that they had 10–15 minutes to flee the attack,[2][8][11][12][13] although in some cases the delay has been as little as five minutes.[14]

      In November 2014 the most senior US military official, General Martin Dempsey, said Israel "did some extraordinary things to limit civilian casualties" during Operation Protective Edge. He gave Roof Knocking as an example to efforts by Israel to minimize Civilian casualties in Gaza.[15]

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roof_knocking

      so at a minimum 5 minutes... at a maximum 10-15...

      So these guys are sitting in their house. They hear a knock on the rook. You've been told the average time before the jdam hits is 10 minutes. What do you do?

      You know if they take your house out most of the stuff around it will be taken out too. If you decide to run how far do you have to run? In what direction? Is it likely they have just picked your house to bomb? If, in fact, they think there are actually militants in the house, do they have a drone outside ready to pick off anyone who comes out and is running? Are they waiting for a double tab, the same game they played in Afghanistan.

      Do you take you chances, try and get the kids and the baby and grandma and grandpa and try to start running or do you simply bend over, spread your legs, and kiss your ass goodbye?

      This is a cynical PR move and nothing more.

    1. ISIS makes gains in north Syria from regime, rebels

      http://english.alarabiya.net/en/News/middle-east/2016/04/16/ISIS-makes-gains-in-northern-Syria-from-regime-rebels.html

      AFP, BeirutSaturday, 16 April 2016 Text size A A A

      ISIS made gains in northern Syria on Saturday from both government forces and their rebel opponents, a monitoring group said.

      The northern province of Aleppo borders Turkey and is criss-crossed with supply routes that are strategic for practically all of Syria's warring sides.

      On Saturday, ISIS fighters seized another border village in their offensive against non-extremist rebel groups in the province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

      The ISIS counterattack has rolled back rebel gains in the border area, which had seen advance them from Azaz, a town eight kilometers (five miles) south of the Turkish border, towards ISIS bastions further east.

      “The ISIS gains have cut off opposition territory around Azaz from rebels in the town of Dudyan further east,” Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said.

      “Now the rebels in Dudyan are practically surrounded by ISIS.”

    2. The ground around Aleppo has been in flux for weeks, the Islamic State has not taken a town or village.

  40. Hersh's new book, The Killing of Osama Bin Laden, is a corrective to the official account of the war on terror. Drawing from accounts of a number of high-level military officials, Hersh challenges a number of commonly accepted narratives: that Syrian president Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the Sarin gas attack in Ghouta; that the Pakistani government didn’t know Bin Laden was in the country; that the late ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in a solely diplomatic capacity; and that Assad did not want to give up his chemical weapons until the U.S. called on him to do so.

    http://www.alternet.org/world/exclusive-interview-seymour-hersh-dishes-saudi-oil-money-bribes-and-killing-osama-bin-laden

    Ken Klippenstein: In the book you describe Saudi financial support for the compound in which Osama Bin Laden was being kept in Pakistan. Was that Saudi government officials, private individuals or both?

    Seymour Hersh: The Saudis bribed the Pakistanis not to tell us [that the Pakistani government had Bin Laden] because they didn’t want us interrogating Bin Laden (that’s my best guess), because he would’ve talked to us, probably. My guess is, we don’t know anything really about 9/11. We just don’t know. We don’t know what role was played by whom.

    KK: So you don’t know if the hush money was from the Saudi government or private individuals?

    SH: The money was from the government … what the Saudis were doing, so I’ve been told, by reasonable people (I haven’t written this) is that they were also passing along tankers of oil for the Pakistanis to resell. That’s really a lot of money.

    KK: For the Bin Laden compound?

    SH: Yeah, in exchange for being quiet. The Paks traditionally have done security for both Saudi Arabia and UAE.

    2. KK: You write that Obama authorized a ratline wherein CIA funneled arms from Libya into Syria and they ended up in jihadi hands. [According to Hersh, this operation was coordinated via the Benghazi consulate where U.S. ambassador Stevens was killed.] What was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s role in this given her significant role in Libya?

      SH: The only thing we know is that she was very close to Petraeus who was the CIA director at the time ... she’s not out of the loop, she knows when there’s covert ops. ... That ambassador who was killed, he was known as a guy, from what I understand, as somebody who would not get in the way of the CIA. As I wrote, on the day of the mission he was meeting with the CIA base chief and the shipping company. He was certainly involved, aware and witting of everything that was going on. And there’s no way somebody in that sensitive of a position is not talking to the boss, by some channel.

      Interesting factoid, though it is illegal for candidates or national parties to offer monetary inducements to sway delegates, it's legal for wealthy individuals or PACs to offer delegates gifts, tickets to shows, dinner at a fancy restaurants, golf weekends in Florida or maybe the Bahamas, gift bags, etc.

  42. Most predictions had Trump bringing home between 85 and 90 of Tuesday's 118 'bound' delegates – the number that does not include Pennsylvania's grab bag of 54.

    He will end up crushing those expectations, winning at least 105.
    When polls opened Tuesday morning, Trump had 845 delegates in his column, compared with 559 for Cruz and 148 for Kasich.
