This isn’t what we’re told of course. But it is sadly all too true. And the military industrial complex likes the “progressives” right back.
That The Clinton Foundation logo looks so much like the European Union flag is no coincidence.
I accept that Mr. Obama and I do not see the world the same way. But there are times when the President ventures into the ludicrous and this is one of those times.
The media in pretty much every way was in the tank for Hillary Clinton this election. Aside from FOX News, all the major broadcasters were practically ongoing infomercials for the former Secretary of State this year. Even accounting for Obama’s pro-Democrat bias how can he possibly say that the media was too tough on Hillary Clinton with a straight face?
This is an interesting article because it hints of the tectonic shifts going on in the electorate. Some shifts, like Pennsylvania going Republican are obvious. Others are much more subtle, the result of quiet movements in political magma bubbling under the surface.
In the attached article, Politico (being Politico) makes sure to trot out the already tired memes of Tumptist racism. The article also perpetuates the “Steve Bannon is a ‘white nationalist’” bit. (Which for the record,
Hey, we don’t agree with the Greens on very much (though for the record both co-founders of ACC would probably call themselves “environmentalists”) but this statement reflects some institutional integrity and we respect that.
A couple of things. I think Pie is wrong on his general disposition politically but he reminds me of what “liberals” used to be like before the plague of political correctness, the Religion of Grievance, descended on the Western Left. He correctly points out that PC shuts down debate. When this debate is shut down the marketplace of information is warped. The Clinton camp, the media, the pundits, the pollsters were all operating and making assumptions with warped information.
This by the way was my electoral college call on September 15th 2016.
This election (and specifically Wikileaks) has ripped away the facade of the political machine. The media, the DNC, the White House and the Department of Justice, the guys on the GOP side. It’s all terribly ugly and undermines, at least to some extent, the very legitimacy of the system. We need transparency and we need it now.
Ah yes, Mr. Corzine. We haven’t seen much of you these days. Of course we didn’t summer in the Hamptons this year.
$5 million is slightly more than a speed bump for Mr. Corzine. But just barely.
Here’s a little refresher on what happened at MF Global.
Five years after MF Global’s collapse after big, levered bets on European bonds blew up leaving a $1.6 billion shortfall in customer funds,
This is a nice little tool and if you are inclined to start a political firestorm on your Facebook feed look no farther. Just make an outlandish prediction and watch the trolls troll.
This is not surprising. It highlights yet again the extent to which the #oldmedia is in many respects just a mouthpiece. For the record the video in the attached article from Mediaite has been removed and I can not find it elsewhere at this moment. (I’ll post if it shows up later in the day.)
I have a soft spot in my heart for Triumph. Always have.
And don’t worry Dems Triumph is definitely in your camp in the end.
