Goldman Sachs bans top employees from donating to Trump: Report

Hillary with Goldman Sach’s CEO Lloyd Blankfein.

Goldman is concerned NOW about “pay to play” rules. It was less concerned in 2008 when it was Obama’s biggest private contributor. And Hillary Clinton donations still appear to be OK.

Ralph Nader on the presidential choices (VIDEO)

Ralph Nader is wrong on any number of things but I’ve talked with him at some length a couple of times and he strikes me as one of the few really decent people I’ve met in Washington. I like the guy. I think he legitimately opposes crony capitalism and it is my understanding that it was he who originally coined the term “corporate welfare.” I’d be happy to have a beer or a glass of wine with him anytime, and that’s more than I can say for many DC denizens.

Hillary campaign head’s company received $35 million from “Putin-connected Russian government fund” while Clinton was Sec. of State

(They did ask for it of course.) Heck, even some of the athletes are bailing on Rio at this point.

(From The Independent)

Some 300 police held a rally on Monday rallied to protest unpaid wages and unsatisfactory working conditions.

As we have said many times before we at ACC are generally for immigration. We are a “nation of immigrants” as is oft repeated. I am of Italian and Irish descent for the record. We are also completely neutral on the presidential election and all elections. But we do focus on cronyism and crony media is a big problem.

Below we see how narratives are crafted. There are perhaps 50 protesters max in this shot, yet the videographer stages his shot to create the impression of many more.

1968 REDUX? Democrat establishment scared of Bernie’s people, Boxer, Feinstein, Reid freaking out

Chicago 1968, Philly 2016?

Check out what Barbara Boxer had to say about the dissent in Nevada;

“I was not able to stop these people for doing what they did,” Boxer, a Hillary Clinton supporter, told CNN. “Apparently they’ve done it before. …. This group of about 100 were very vocal, and I can’t describe it — disrespectful doesn’t even explain it, it was worse than that.”

That sure sounds like “round ’em up”
