Bill Kristol: “We Beat Back Ron Paul and Rand Paul” (Right…And this is why the neocons remain in the political wilderness and Jeb got spanked. Because you won.)

The neocons are for big government and wars. Bill Kristol is for big government and wars. The neocons disliked Reagan and celebrated George W. Bush’s massive expansion of the state. They loathe libertarianism and they loathe the Pauls. They quietly like Hillary Clinton who is basically an extension of George W. Bush in many respects. In fact most neocons – most of whom are Bushites – would probably like to see Hillary win this go’round. (Though they can’t say it publicly –

Hillary Clinton friend George W Bush, and they are friends, attacks Trump

Some people are acting like it’s some big coup that the Bushes (who were basically humiliated in the primaries) are attacking Trump. Folks, of course they are attacking Trump. They got spanked.  Lindsey Graham is attacking Trump. Mitt Romney is attacking Trump. The Bushite neocons are on the record as saying they may defect to Hillary because Trump isn’t sufficiently hawkish for them. And you will notice that these washed up Republicans aren’t running out and endorsing the small government candidate,

This video may blow your mind, the best illustration of the post Crash bailouts I’ve ever seen

This is from 2011 when the wounds of the Crash were still fresh.

Now we’ve been conditioned. Time has passed and the banks want you to forget what happened and the dull economic pain which still dogs the world.*

We at ACC will never forget.

At the end of this video is a very short ad for someone who was running for Congress. We do not endorse candidates ever. We don’t know who this person is.

Crony media not trusted by public anymore, trust in banks, religion also has eroded

This is a direct reflection of the Internet revolution.

People have always questioned the established order of a particular time. They had hunches that something was amiss. That the whole story wasn’t being told. Now people can follow their hunches more easily by going online.

It’s not so different from what happened with the printing press.

58 Percent of Voters Willing To Go With Someone Other Than Trump or Clinton

Winds of change are blowing.

That feels about right. And it should be remembered that the state as we know it is very much a product of the 20th Century. Just as highly centralized, highly hierarchical corporations are. Corporations have been forced to adjust to the new less centralized world (though this is ongoing), governments are just beginning to feel the winds of change.

Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative News

Facebook is a private company and it has a right to do whatever it wishes with its platform. We will also say that Facebook has been an excellent outlet for ACC generally. But the issues presented in the attached article from Gizmodo should be aired and they are of concern. Facebook is a widely trusted brand. Everyone uses it, “liberals,” conservatives, libertarians, everyone. Facebook should seek to maintain this trust. It’s one of the things which makes Facebook such a special and truly great company.

It’s time to end Nerd Prom (The White House Correspondents’ Dinner)

The dinner in a nutshell.

I hate the term “nerd prom” anyway. It’s such baloney. It’s self aggrandizement veiled in false modesty. The people who attend the dinner aren’t “nerds.” They don’t think of themselves as “nerds.” They are social climbing politicos. Throw in the Hollywood people and the whole thing is practically insufferable. Bill Press agrees.

Some CEOs don’t like that cronyism is increasingly under the microscope

“The precipitousness of the political debate is a little scary right now,” said Jim McNerney, who served as chief executive of Boeing Co. until last year and as chairman until February, at a recent industry conference.

“Anti-business” and “anti-market” are 2 very different things.

Many feel frustrated these days. There is the sense that there is an agenda and that everyday people are not part of that agenda.

Many people have been under considerable economic pressure since the Crash in 2008,
