Can I Just Get Me Some Truth?

I’ve been very vocal about my outrage concerning Hillary and the DNC, much to the concern and consternation of many, even those who love me. Allow me to further illuminate what this is all about, since many seem so confused and worried about my mental state.

The American Media at work during the Democratic primaries.

Anyone who closely watched the 2016 electoral process found themselves witnessing a shamefully blatant collusion between the government, the DNC and the media (which ignored and buried any positive news about the Sanders’ campaign). What most shocked me was the media’s role in elevating Hillary and burying Bernie. The fact that 700 delegates walked out of the Democratic convention without getting any notice in the national press is a great example of how the media controlled the message we were all fed. And how they took their direction from the Clinton campaign, ignoring the many signs of voter suppression and election fraud in the primaries, pretending the Democrats were unified at the convention, which was a real joke. There’s a video that shows Jake Tapper of CNN hastily cutting to Boyz 2 Men on the convention stage to prevent CNN reporters from covering the delegate walkout.

The Federal government at work protecting our democratic process.

700 delegates walk out of the Democratic Convention and the Mainstream Mediocrity doesn’t find that newsworthy! For me—and this is key to my stand on Hillary—the cabal behind Hillary was essentially attempting a non-violent coup d’etat. If you drop polite terms, conspiring to steal an election, and nullifying millions of votes, is tantamount to Treason. I appreciate the concern many have shown about my frequently expressed outrage. That has led to a lot of misunderstanding, people assuming I was supporting Trump because I was against Hillary, or that I had gone over the edge.

Let me be clear, my first priority was to protect and defend the Constitution, something Obama failed to do in allowing the Democratic nomination to be stolen. What did Obama say? Democracy is hard work? Obviously, defending democracy was equally difficult for him.

At times I feel like the little Dutch boy who discovered a leak in the dike. Even if nobody believes me, should I shut up and walk away? Or should I stick my finger in the hole and start shouting for help?

Even if people don’t wish to hear the truth about their favorite candidate?

Thankfully, there’s no longer any need to fight Hillary and her cabal. Through some ironic twist of fate, she and her fellow conspirators lost the election, leaving us to deal with someone in the White House seemingly not worthy of leading the country. Or the world! For myself, I will continue to disseminate the Truth about the 2016 election, as I see it, and to fight anything Trump does to threaten the welfare of the planet and the people who live upon it.

If you’re angry about Trump becoming our president, don’t blame me; blame Hillary and the Democratic Party whose grab for power set all manner of bad outcomes into play.

If you’re worried about me because I refuse to quietly accept the theft of our democracy, or the leadership of a failed and corrupt Democratic Party, worry first about yourself or anyone else who quietly accepts it.

WHY MILLENNIALS WILL NEVER VOTE FOR HILLARY

And Why The Media Can Never Explain Why

 “I’m sorry. Please forgive me.”

Those are the words Hillary Clinton needs to say to Millennials that might actually win her a few of their votes. I’m not sure how large a percentage would be moved, but I believe some would respond if they felt the apology was sincere and deeply felt.

The American Media at work during the Democratic primaries.

Anyone who knows Hillary Clinton knows those would be the last words on her lips before she dies—and not before!

And unless you’ve been living abroad and cut off from all internet access—notice I didn’t say “cut off from all press reports”—you know exactly why Hillary needs to apologize. As any Millennial who voted for Bernie Sanders in the primaries can tell you, HILLARY STOLE THE ELECTION FROM BERNIE. Bernie’s votes were suppressed, ignored, hacked, flipped, lost and shredded, all in service to ensuring Hillary a nomination she could never win on the field of battle. As Stalin once said, “The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.” Stalin could have easily added, “And the people who steal the votes never win the hearts of those whose votes they stole.”

So now the primaries are over and Hillary has been handed the nomination by a political party that actively worked to sabotage the campaign of her opponent; a man who most Millennials actually voted for, even if their votes weren’t counted.

Pity the poor mainstream media that now has to report on the real challenges facing Hillary as she struggles to woo Sanders voters; a media hoisted on its own petard when trying to explain why Bernie supporters would rather chew glass than vote for Hillary. As far as Berners are concerned—and obviously I include myself in that group—Hillary proved herself spectacularly unsuited to be President by trampling on the voting rights of millions, and by taking a large and odorous bowel movement on the Constitution of the United States—an act of infamy that went strangely unreported in the American media.

It would be too kind to excuse the media’s journalistic lapse by calling it a fluke or an oversight. The mainstream media’s consistent failure to investigate or report on Hillary’s stolen victories makes it hard for them to explain now why Millennials and other Sanders’ supporters dislike Hillary with such savage intensity. Theirs is the kind of unforgiving, almost feral ferocity that arises after one has been victimized time after time after time.

Primary after primary after primary!

By not reporting on Hillary’s Great American Election Fraud Machine, which seemed as large as an aircraft carrier to those of us in Bernie’s camp, the media cannot honestly explain to its millions of unsuspecting readers and viewers why Hillary is so hated today without revealing their own complicity in previously ignoring her widespread election crime spree. Nor could they provide a broader context to the collusion revealed in the leaked DNC emails without also revealing their own stooge-like devotion to ignoring Hillary’s crimes and ensuring her eventual coronation.

So much easier to mimic the DNC cover-up line, “The Russians did it!” and hope the public gets distracted enough not to ask why Hillary wasn’t disqualified for cheating.

Now, for me, the big question has become “Why didn’t Obama step in and put a stop to Hillary’s election fraud?” Which may lead others to ask another question: “What did Obama know and when did he know it?”

Wouldn’t it be ironic if Obama were impeached and the media, once again, couldn’t say why?

TAX THE RICH OR KILL THE POOR.

Wealth is essentially finite. It may expand or contract, but at any given time there’s only so much wealth to go around.

When a nation’s wealth and political power are concentrated in the hands of a few, the rest of its citizens are left with little scroogemore than long days of struggle, painfully-gained progress and fewer attainable dreams. We see it in the Middle East, in Africa and Asia, and in Third World countries where rulers and their cliques soak up all the wealth like so much gravy.

And we are seeing it today in America.

It won’t be long before we reach the tipping point, when students and their parents won’t have money for college, cities won’t have money for schools or libraries, governments won’t have money for basic services, and the poor won’t have money for anything, much less anywhere to turn.

It seems as if we’re living in a Charles Dickens novel where the same Dickensian actors—greed, hard-heartedness, self-righteousness and moral vacuity—have once again stepped center stage to suggest, by their actions if not their words, that it might be better for the poor to die and decrease the surplus population.

No matter that those feelings are thinly disguised behind Big Lies repeated over and over by agents and tools of the wealthy—by newspapers and TV stations owned by the rich, by a political process and Supreme Court controlled by the rich, by sound bites and legislation advanced by rich politicians—that taxes are unfair, that corporations are people, that the wealthiest among us have no obligation to assist the poorest, that God helps those who help themselves, that government exists to protect wealth rather than the welfare of its citizens, and that the surest way to help the poor is to advance the purpose and cause of the wealthy.

All these years later and still Trickle-Down Economics lives!

And those Big Lies, once the exclusive province of the Republican Party are now being echoed by those on the other side of the aisle; as the once-progressive Democratic Party, under the Clintons’ self-serving leadership, evolves to become more Republican in spirit than Democrat—sometimes called ‘Republican Light.’

And now comes word that agencies of the fabulously wealthy Koch brothers—the Heritage Foundation and others—are funding advertising campaigns to buttress the resolve of their congressional lackeys to repeal or gut Obamacare. As though the only hope for a healthier American population is a wealthier oligarchy.

If you accept the premise that, for all practical purposes, wealth is finite, that a government cannot spend more than it takes in or borrows against the future—then all the financial, economic and social upheaval in our country starts to make sense. There isn’t enough to go around when one sector gets a lock-tight grip on the purse and the purse strings. Once that happens, with so little left on the table after you pay for non-discretionary programs, those of us who aren’t wealthy or financially secure, find ourselves battling each other for an ever-dwindling slice of the GBP (Government Budget Pie). Humane and necessary programs compete one against the other. Infants battle the elderly and poor for nutrition allocations. Recovering alcoholics have to fight the homeless, as well as disabled veterans, for shelter dollars. Sesame Street fights for the very same funds sorely needed to regulate Wall Street. All the while, the public sector continues to implode and gentrification elbows families and poor people out of their homes.

We’ve moved from an era where taxes were seen as burdensome to where today the absence of sufficient tax dollars is killing the poor, eviscerating the Midle Class, and apportioning a majority of new income—58%—directly into the pockets of the richest of the rich—the 1%.

The Republican attack on public sector unions in Wisconsin is merely the edge of the scythe as it begins to mow down the social contract my generation grew up with and came to expect from a civilized society.

Collective moral bankruptcy is the problem today, not collective bargaining!

Tax breaks for the wealthy that began with Ronald Reagan and continued under George W. Bush were beyond obscene, as are the bone-deep cuts to government programs now regularly enacted by a government bled dry of its assets by the Republican Party under the guise of fiscal responsibility.  Reducing government spending reduces the need to tax those who have aggregated most of America’s assets. By protecting their excessive fortunes by shutting off the government spigot, the wealthy among us are endangering the lives and livelihoods of so many others. Children will go hungry; students will either forgo college or take on lifetime debt; retirees will see their pensions cut; people will lose their jobs and homes; many will go without winter heating fuel; cities will lay off police, teachers and firemen; while the health of our poorest citizens will dramatically decline—all done so a small group of wealthy individuals can build and accumulate ever more and more money.

We saw it in 2008. We are seeing it today. In spades!. Especially since both major parties are tightly held within the grip of the money-saturated oligarchy.

Tax the rich or kill the poor? What would Charles Dickens have done?

How about Jesus?

Revised March 6, 2017

This is an updated version of an essay I wrote a few years ago. It’s quite shocking to me how far things have gone downhill since then. With the Republicans, as good servants of their wealthy masters, continuing their assault against social security and medicare, and virtually stymieing any attempts to combat Global Warming, this world is becoming a harsh and unfriendly place in which to live…survive…?

Sorry Bernie, We Still Can’t Trust Hillary!

There’s One Thing You Forgot To Mention

In spite of what you said in your recent L.A. Times op-ed, we still can’t vote for Hillary. What you left out in your op-ed was any mention of the character of the woman you are endorsing for president. The woman whose vote you are asking us for. Talking about Donald Trump the Boogie Man doesn’t give Hillary a free pass on character. So let’s look at what you didn’t say—the half-truths you offered us, Bernie—after a year of telling us the whole truth.

UnBernie-HilaryknownYou made no mention that you were asking us to vote for someone with so little character she would actually subvert the will of the people, trample their right to vote while stealing the Democratic nomination.

Those were OUR votes she stole, Bernie! WE, YOUR SUPPORTERS, were the ones she made stand outside in five hour lines, and whose probationary ballots were sent out back to be shredded. I noticed you didn’t mention any of that in your op-ed, Bernie.

You also forgot to include Hillary is so experienced in lying and taking the most expedient path there is no guarantee that what she promised today she will honor tomorrow. Only a fool would expect Hillary—once she becomes president—to stand by policies you forced on her back when she needed your endorsement. I fully expect she will inevitably and repeatedly defer to furthering the interests of those who funded her campaign, which you rightly warned us against back when you were still fighting her as an establishment tool.

Back when you were still clear as to who the enemy was.

Hilary is exactly what you warned us against, Bernie! A Tool of the Establishment, Wall Street’s Favorite and the only woman on the planet who has earned the right to be called “The Fracking Queen.”

Bernie, you can’t talk about Hillary’s character because, if she has any, it’s of questionable integrity. People have been witnessing Hillary’s character for over 40 years. That’s one of the reasons why nobody, in their deepest hearts, can entirely rule out Hillary’s involvement in all the unexplained deaths that have surrounded the Clintons all the years of their joint careers, from Vince Foster’s suicide to the recent deaths of a former Clinton donation bundler and a DNC employee supposedly shot during a robbery even though nothing was stolen and he was shot two times in the back.

Lastly, and most importantly, we believe Hillary is far more likely than any other candidate to send our children and grandchildren off to kill strangers in foreign lands, and to do it for no good reason other than her warlike tendencies and to feed the constant hunger of the military-industrial machine.

Rather than being an agent against international terrorism and war, the US has become the number one cause of war and terrorism, blindly sending out it’s over-weaponized armies without taking into account how our presence will further inflame and accelerate the forces of war. How many wars could have been avoided, how many lost lives saved, had we had the good sense to stay the hell out in the first place?

So, yes, Bernie, you may chose to vote for Hillary. we wish you well and hope you feel good about that choice. The rest of us, however, will take another path. We are done choosing the lesser of two evils, done voting for someone who smells slightly less odious than her opponent. And please note, we will never vote for someone who by corrupting an entire election has proven herself unworthy of the office to which she aspires.

Fortunately, we have other options; we do not need to vote for Hillary or that orange-haired ignoramus on the other side.

Instead, we can vote for Jill Stein. Instead, we can vote for what we believe, just as we did by voting for you. Instead of capitulating once again to a system that plays America’s voters for suckers, we can vote for Jill Stein.

Bernie, you must understand why we can’t vote for Hillary; you who have fought entrenched interests your entire political career. In rejecting Hillary, we are merely continuing your fight. Our eyes are on the prize, even if that prize lies ten or twenty years down the road.

Finally we can start to turn this thing around, Bernie. We have choices that will allow us to both vote and hold our heads high. We can re-invigorate our Democracy. We can start building an alternative to this destructive and self-enriching two-party system.

And it won’t be by voting for Hillary Clinton.

Battle For The Presidency. The Gonzo Versus The Gonif.

DonaldThe entire planet should take a deep breath and release a giant, communal “WTF!” Now, everyone standing should get down on their knees and pray to whatever God We Trust that neither of the two major party nominees make it to the Oval Office. If they do, brother, we are definitely fucked.

After six months of primaries and eight months of non-stop nonsense, hillarywe are left with two candidates for the highest office in the land…one who wrote “The Art of the Deal” and parades around the public stage like a narcissistic clown in a Fellini film, the other who perfected “The Art of the Steal” in running for her party’s nomination, the greatest theft in the history of American politics, if not also the clumsiest.

Someone else will have to explain Donald Trump to me. He’s so Gonzo it’s impossible to believe he’s gotten as far as he has running for the presidency—even as a Republican candidate! I watch him purposely walk into wall after wall, as if he’s blindly searching for a door that repeatedly shifts locations; and I don’t know what to make of him. Attacking war heroes; refusing to endorse his own party’s leaders; making inane statements; verbally assaulting women, blacks, Mexicans, reporters with disabilities, the parents of fallen soldiers—the man is totally unpredictable except for the fact he can be expected to say something crass, hateful, childish, sexist or stupid every time someone sticks a microphone in his face.

Is Trump deliberately trying to lose the election? He certainly acts as if he is. Has he made a deal with Hillary and Bill, who seriously know something themselves about making deals? A deal to screw up his campaign so badly the only people who vote for him would have to have suicidal tendencies?

As much as Donald J. mystifies me, I do understand Hillary. I call her The Gonif, or thief, in honor of her successful theft of the Democratic Nomination. I say ‘successful,’ but anyone with eyes and even the shortest attention span must have noticed the massive, blatant and heavy-handed irregularities—not to mention the accompanying stench—that rose like a black cloud across the country from the democratic primary process. Votes were stolen, voters were kept from voting booths, voting lists were purged, party registrations were mysteriously switched, ballots were thrown out or shredded, and all the exit polls showed wild discrepancies from the final results, all these abnormalities coincidentally favoring one candidate to the detriment of the other.

If all of this is news to you, you need to stop getting your news from CNN, NBC, The New York Times, The Boston Globe or any other member of the Mainstream Media-ocrity.

Hillary and Bill are all about two things: Power and Money, the former always leading to the latter. No sooner did Hillary step into her role as Secretary of State than the Clinton money-making apparatus shifted into high gear. No longer selling sleepovers in the Lincoln Room for $50K, they were in the big time now. Russia wanted to buy 20% of the world’s Uranium holdings? All they had to do for Hillary’s approval was pay $500,000 to have Bill fly over and speak at a Russian bank. (Don’t expect Russia to run out of radioactive fuel in the near future.) Saudi Arabia and Qatar wanted approvals to buy sophisticated American weaponry? All it took were multi-million dollar donations to the Clinton Piggy Bank, otherwise known as the Clinton Foundation. There’s more, lots more; so much more I run the risk of boring myself.

So here we stand on the cusp of an American presidential election that makes me feel like I ingested some bad acid. On one side a candidate so unbelievable he’s ideally suited to represent a party that spent the last 20 years denying reality. Any party that denies evolution, climate warming and Obama’s birthright deserves nothing less than a jackass for its presidential nominee.

On the other side, a woman who deserves a prison sentence rather than a four-year term in the White House.

The Gonzo versus The Gonif. I don’t know about you, but I’m voting for Jill Stein. A little less drama and a lot more integrity would be a good thing.

But then there’s also Canada…?
