HILLARY CLINTON “WARMONGER” IS HARDLY A “RUSSIAN SMEAR”

But that’s precisely the argument that was posited, recently, by a mainstream Democrat at a progressive news-hub I regularly visit. Although the commenter’s post includes the concession that Clinton is “far from a pacifist,” they nonetheless insisted that describing the former First Lady, U.S. Senator, and Secretary of State as a “war mongerer” is a left-wing delusion — the result… Read More »HILLARY CLINTON “WARMONGER” IS HARDLY A “RUSSIAN SMEAR”

R.I.P., DAVID KOCH, MAJOR SHAREHOLDER IN AMERICA’S LEADING POLITICAL PARTIES AND OTHER INSTITUTIONS… INCLUDING THE “LIBERAL” MEDIA.

While Thom Hartmann has had some consistent problems blundering into the quicksand of “lesser evil” partisanship, causing him to be a frequent apologist for one-half of our pernicious duopoly, I still consider him a fairly decent progressive who has occasionally contributed something of value to the national conversation. In the following segment from his show, Hartmann and his guest describe… Read More »R.I.P., DAVID KOCH, MAJOR SHAREHOLDER IN AMERICA’S LEADING POLITICAL PARTIES AND OTHER INSTITUTIONS… INCLUDING THE “LIBERAL” MEDIA.

FUCKERY

Demonstrating, yet again, that the Democratic Party has learned none of the lessons of 2016, the DNC appears hellbent on preventing Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a staunchly anti-war progressive, from taking her place on the debate stage. Rep. Gabbard has done far too well in her previous debate appearances, and her national support is steadily growing. She’s fought for election integrity,… Read More »FUCKERY

FOOL US *TWICE* WITH “WMD” FABRICATIONS? SHAME ON US…

In the early 2000’s, the corporate media, virtually in lockstep, told us that Saddam Hussein had “WMD” — systematically burying all evidence to the contrary. All skeptics and dissenters were purged, including the NYT’s Pulitzer-winning journalist, Chris Hedges. And, as if to illustrate the one true priority of corporate “news” — propagandizing the American people — MSNBC fired Phil Donahue… Read More »FOOL US *TWICE* WITH “WMD” FABRICATIONS? SHAME ON US…

“THE ENVIRONMENTAL PRESIDENT”

Bush-Obama’s methane legacy — “Freedom Gas” choking the biosphere… From the article: “Between 2005 and 2015, fracking went from producing 31 billion cubic meters of shale gas per year to producing 435 billion cubic meters. “Nearly 90 percent of that fracking took place in the U.S., while about 10 percent was done in Canada.” Like domestic oil production, hydraulic fracturing… Read More »“THE ENVIRONMENTAL PRESIDENT”

Russiagate defined.

Russiagate = supporting the neo-fascists behind the genocide of millions of predominantly Arab-Muslim civilians (under Trump’s three predecessors alone: 1+ million under Clinton, 1+ million under Bush, 500,000+ under Obama) in order to convey to one’s bourgeois peers one’s purely symbolic condemnation of racism. Mathematically expressed: Russiagate = omnicidal fascism + a facade of “liberalism” (protecting the mind-bogglingly amoral, despotic,… Read More »Russiagate defined.

Lies, damn lies, and… deliberately screwing with polling data to deceive your audience.

Katie Halper continues her great reporting on U.S. politics, noting how the corporate media systematically misreports polling data in order to cheat progressives and elevate establishmentarians like Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg. (Echoes of 2016, with the 1% pulling out all of the stops to morph journalism into sheer political shilling, blatantly campaigning for the oligarchs’ preferred politicians… Read More »Lies, damn lies, and… deliberately screwing with polling data to deceive your audience.

Trump Pranked! The #McResistance Lives! Green New Deal… *not* imminent.

More proof that the “Russian puppet” meme will never die, no matter how many times Russiagate is debunked… Recently, the 45th President of the United States gave a speech before a group of teenage (high school) “deplorables” gathered for a conference in Washington, DC — with Trump standing before a massive image that was subtly designed to portray him as… Read More »Trump Pranked!

If Donald Trump is the closest thing we have to a non-interventionist (after Tulsi and Bernie), then we’re in a great deal of trouble…

From the excellent CounterPunch article by Rob Urie: “Two years plus of taunting Donald Trump from the right has left the left holding the baggy for untethering his steely anti-interventionist resolve from the hitchin’ post. And while it’s proper to question the metallurgical integrity of said resolve, he did ask questions in his run for President that landed like an… Read More »If Donald Trump is the closest thing we have to a non-interventionist (after Tulsi and Bernie), then we’re in a great deal of trouble…
