Here, a Clinton match-up is highly likely to be an unmitigated electoral disaster, whereas a Sanders candidacy stands a far better chance. Every one of Clinton’s (considerable) weaknesses plays to every one of Trump’s strengths, whereas every one of Trump’s (few) weaknesses plays to every one of Sanders’s strengths. From a purely pragmatic standpoint, running Clinton against Trump is a disastrous, suicidal proposition.
If the Trump/Sanders debate proceeds as planned in California, you’re about to witness one of the most important moments of a 2016 general election that hasn’t even begun yet. To say such a debate would be an unmitigated disaster for Hillary Clinton would be the understatement of the century. Let’s explore why.
First of all, Hillary Clinton outright rejected a debate request from Bernie Sanders ahead of the June 7th California primary. Given Sanders’ recent momentum, as well as her need to persuade a significant number of his supporters to back her in November; such a denial was not only arrogant, it was highly insulting to voters in America’s largest state.
Propaganda inundates entertainment and mainstream news, but emails released recently by Judicial Watch as part of its FOIA lawsuit show how insidiously pro-establishment agenda has marked Hillary Clinton’s first presidential run and career as secretary of state — as well as Pres. Obama’s tenure in office.
In a memo dated January 18, 2009, addressed to Secretary of State-Designate Hillary Clinton Transition Team, Jin Chon — Clinton’s 2008 campaign specialty media spokesman — writes about the ‘underutilization’ of nontraditional media by the State Department for promoting its agenda. And though not entirely subtle, the language Chon employs certainly points to the inextricable connection between corporate media platforms and the government using them to foist its foreign policy goals on less than keen populace.
Discussing specialty media such as talk show, The View, Country Music Television, and a smattering of foreign outlets, Chon explains [with all emphasis added],
There are patterns in markets. Yes, the Fed and High Frequency Traders influence markets, but we can learn from past patterns in the S&P 500 Index.
Using weekly data, the S&P made a high in March 2000, fell to an initial low in April, rose, and fell to a second low in October 2000. It rallied and fell below the second low in February 2001 – never to look back. From high to final low took 931 calendar days and price fell about 51%.
Examine the following chart and note the H, L-1, L-2 and a final low.
Russia has no plans to deliver US astronauts to ISS after 2018 — US wants ISS program extended through to 2024 — Russia has no intention of concluding more contracts for delivering US astronauts to the International Space Station after 2018, the deputy chief of the state-run corporation Roscosmos, Sergey Saveliev, has told the media.
Maybe the Russians don’t want to participate anymore because NASA is engaged in too much space-station fakery.
Or maybe there are other issues such as increased US military activity around Russia. Chances are we will never know.
In the modern age, high-tech government programs are almost immune from serious scrutiny.
Monsanto has been trying to take over Africa’s cotton for decades with their patented, genetically modified (GM) seed. Not without irony, Burkina Faso is just one of the African countries that has been wary of any of Monsanto’s GM seed, adding to the credo, ‘better off dead, than GM fed,’ when it came to accepting U.S. food aid that was primarily genetically altered. Africa’s biggest cotton grower in Burkina Faso is now phasing out Monsanto’s GM cotton and returning to indigenous varieties by 2018, due to concerns of cross-contamination of local crops and the less-than-stellar performance of Monsanto’s Bt variety.
This move by a West African country is noteworthy because Africa has been the unnamed poster child for promoting genetically modified crops as a means to end hunger and stop poverty by biotech interests. Investors like Bill Gates have donated millions to try to help GM crops catch on throughout the continent, stating that genetically modified crops could ‘end world hunger by 2030.’
On Wednesday, Donald Trump mentioned Weekly Standard neocon and Fox News pundit Bill Kristol and the effort to establish a third party.
Trump said Kristol “wants the war in Iraq. All the guy wants to do is kill people, go to war and kill people, even though he knows it’s not working, although he doesn’t know because he’s not smart enough.”
Kristol was a leading proponent of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. He teamed up with fellow neocon Lawrence Kaplan and wrote The War Over Iraq which predicted a “two month war, not an eight year war” in 2003, weeks before the invasion. According to Kristol, the Gulf War, the Kosovo War, the War in Afghanistan, and the Iraq War were not invasions, but rather “liberations.” The invasion of Iraq alone cost over one million Iraqi lives.
Bill Holter from JS Mineset.com is back to help us document the collapse for the fourth week of May, 2016. And as physical gold and silver moves East and into the strong hands of more than a billion Chinese, and as foreign banks publicly settle global trade in the Yuan, Bill reminds us that “Every step forward by China, is one or two steps backward for the US and the Dollar, that’s what’s happening. For instance, if the Yuan is backed by gold, then why would someone accept the Dollar in lieu of the Yuan if the Dollar’s not backed by anything?”
The build out of the infrastructure for the world to move completely away from the Dollar is almost complete. You have been warned.
An experimental cancer treatment has been given “breakthrough” status by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but is it really a “miracle drug,” as portrayed by the mainstream media?
The treatment, which uses a genetically-altered version of the polio virus to fight cancer cells, has been given fast track status for Phase 2 trials. If the Phase 2 trials are successful, Phase 3 testing may not be required, and a drug based on the treatment could be made available within a few years.
Phase 1 trials of the treatment on an aggressive form of brain cancer called glioblastoma were successful enough to give many people hope that a revolutionary new cancer-fighting weapon might be on the horizon.
AUDIT REVEALS CLINTON EMAIL SERVER VIOLATED SECURITY RULES. Clinton never asked for permission to set up a private server, failed to report several hacking attempts and most revealing is a 2010 email in which she instructed aide Huma Abedin to keep her emails separate because she didn’t want any of her “personal” emails being accessed by the State Department.
To say that Hillary did not react properly to the damning State Department Inspector General report which yesterday found that she broke numerous government rules by setting up her own email server, would be a gruesome understatement.
Trump represents the “racist backlash” of white supremacists, claims journalist
The Guardian’s Steven Thrasher is looking forward to the day when America’s “dying white majority” is overthrown and a political revolution led by people of color ends the “white supremacist” system currently represented by Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
In a video for the Guardian’s YouTube channel, Thrasher claims that the rise in popularity of Donald Trump was predictable because “every bold advancement of progress in the United States is met by a racist backlash.”
In an era when “anything goes”, some people are pushing the envelope to shocking new extremes. At one time, most of the debate was about one or two of the “alternative lifestyles” that are out there, but now there are a multitude of rapidly growing “communities” that are into things that would have been unheard of in previous generations. We have gotten to a point where a large portion of our young adults are completely rejecting traditional values regarding marriage and family, and they are seeking out other paths that they hope will lead them to the fulfillment that they crave.
Let’s talk about “puppy play” first. There is a growing community of people in the western world that are absolutely obsessed with dressing up like cats or dogs and behaving just like them.
