Hillary's Re-investigation and the Media

On Friday it came out that the FBI was re-opening the investigation into the private server Hillary used that housed confidential information. Here is a copy of the actual letter he sent to congress regarding re-opening the investigation.

SCRIBD - Letter from Comey.

It says, "In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation." The letter starts by telling congress that it has re-opened the investigation. Well, they had to tell congress that as they had previously stated that the investigation was complete. So, apparently information was discovered that was not known when the investigation was closed.

So, lets see what we already knew. Hillary had a private server that stored classified information in violation of the law. Hillary had her people destroy information held on that server so that it could not be recovered again illegally. In a case unrelated to the server investigation additional information was found that brought into question whether or not the crime was actionable. That is specifically all we know.

Now, things that are being assumed and are probably true. The information is believed to have been discovered  on a computer that was shared by Hillary's top aide, Huma Abedin and her husband Anthony Weiner. Mr. Weiner is the disgraced New York politician who sent naked pictures of himself to underage women.  Now, Huma has claimed she does not know how the emails got on her computer. That strongly implies that it is indeed Huma's computer that held documents that had not been turned over to the FBI. As far as how many emails are on that computer, I have read from 10,000 to 650,000. The exact number has not been released nor what is in them.

Huma has since left the campaign trail. My guess, she is meeting with her attorneys. Now, what was found? We don't know specifically. We can assume that emails were found that were hidden or destroyed on Hillary's server. That alone would be a crime and would mean that she had destroyed evidence of a crime. By the way, if her attorneys told her to destroy it they would be guilty of a crime too.

The establishment shills and the corporate media have spent the last three days accusing the FBI of being in the pocket of the Russians and Trump. Yeah. James Comey had worked under Bush and was appointed head of the FBI by Obama. You may recall that the Bushes are supporting Hillary as is Obama.  Others have attempted to say that Comey should not have notified congress that he was reopening the case because it might effect the outcome of the election. Heck, failure to notify congress could have effected the outcome of the election.

Here is what you should know. Huma knew what was on that computer and will be seeking immunity from prosecution. Weiner could not have put the information on the computer because he did not have access to Hillary's server. So either Huma downloaded the information to her personal computer or the Easter bunny put it there. If Huma put classified information on her personal computer than she is guilty of a crime and will be prosecuted unless pardoned.

If you are a Hillary supporter, this is bad, this is real bad and it is not over by a long shot. Firstly, WikiLeaks is now going to drop the rest of the Podesta emails and they are going to be the most damning ones yet. Count on it. Secondly, Project Veritas Action is going to release more videotapes. Now, I am not convinced they are firing off their best shots for last. Thirdly, election day is less than ten days away.

Here is my prediction. The final information on what was on Huma's computer will not come out until after the election. If Trump wins, Hillary and Huma will be given pardons by President Obama. If Hillary wins, Obama may or may not pardon her, if he does then she will be impeached and Tim Kaine will be President.

Are Rigged Elections Real Democracy

YouTube - The Young Turks - Donna Brazile Leaked Other CNN Questions To Hillary Clinton.  The Young Turks is a leftist-liberal organization. They are not supporters of Trump; but, supported Sanders. Still, they are at least reporting on how Hillary Clinton was fed questions in advance of the debates and town hall meetings.

Again, the thing you should be paying attention to is the media bias. Hillary Clinton is corrupt, we all know that, she is also insincere and in the pocket of the big banks. Nobody really doubts that if they have any sense. The Clintons took over $150,000,000 from the banks, that is admitted. Still, the Clintons are not the problem, they are merely a symptom of a bigger problem and that is how elections in this country are run so that only puppets get into office.

Lets start with the basics. By the way, I am not focusing on voter fraud because that is minimal. We do not have open elections. Many states have you vote by party in the primaries. In fact, if you are not affiliated with one of the two major parties it is very difficult to get your nominee on the ballots for all 50 states. Secondly, the primaries themselves are not democratic as we have seen. The people who attend the conventions do not always have to vote for the same candidate that the people voted for. That begs the question of why the government pays for parties to hold primaries in the first place.

Once you understand those two issues we are then faced with the fact that there has been a call in numerous newspapers to ignore the will of the people in the general election by allowing people in the electoral college to vote for whoever they want. The way it is supposed to work is that each state gets electors based on the state's population and those electors are required to vote as their state voted. That is representational democracy.

We now know that the Democratic party paid people to disrupt Trump rallies and even bussed people to them for that express purpose. By the way, they were not just paid to disrupt; but, they were sent there to start fights. Does that seem right to anyone?

The media has been complicit in all of this and the corporate media has avoided discussing these issues to the point where they have almost no trust. The fact that six companies control 90% of the media and will only continue to consolidate means that you only hear what they want you to hear. They no longer seek to inform and instead focus only on promoting those who will allow this information monopoly to continue.

A New Era and Not For You

MSN - Reuters - Looming digital regulation has US truck industry scrambling.  Regulations are used to create monopolies and crush smaller businesses. Now, the federal government is looking to regulate all trucking via electronic monitoring of drivers hours.

NBC - CIA Prepping for Possible Cyber Strike Against Russia.  This is the insanity that the globalists believe in.

BBC - Scientists plan to create 'Asgardia' nation state in space.  So they want to launch a satellite in space, claim it as a country (although nobody will live there) and then claim that people are citizens of this non-country to avoid taxes and laws. If it happens then remove it's "citizens" from this planet.

MSN - Vox.com. - Why we need to plan for a future without jobs

MSN - Reuters - Trump vows to weaken U.S. media 'power structure' if elected.  And what is wrong with breaking up monopolies? Nothing. History has taught us that monopolies and allowing price fixing and collusion is harmful to societies.

New York Times - The Rich Vote Republican? Maybe Not This Election.  The reality is that people vote their pocket book whether they are rich, middle class or poor and the rich see it to their advantage to vote for Hillary because they know she will protect their interests.

MSN - USA Today - Self-driving semi-truck makes first trip — a 120-mile beer run.  3.5 million jobs will be lost once this is fully available.

Another Video About the Election Manipulation


YouTube - Project Veritas Action - Rigging the Election – Video III: Creamer Confirms Hillary Clinton Was PERSONALLY Involved.

I will start by saying again that I have never liked the Clintons or the Bushes; but, they are just faces. The real problem is that our votes are manipulated by political operatives and big money which the corporate media goes happily along with because they are owned by the same people.

To Chelsea Clinton

I remember when you moved into the white house. I remember you as a child, I have three of my own and like you, they have grown up. I was an odd father, I had a strange job and strange friends and relatives. Not the kind of people most people know. You had the same thing. I cannot imagine how strange junior high would have been being the presidents daughter. I don't think many of us can.

I don't like your parents. I don't know if you would have liked my parents. My opinion of them does not skew my opinion of you.  You grew up with everyone having an opinion about you, talking about your looks, looking for your mistakes and judging you for your parents. I am sorry for that and have felt the same for all of the children of people who chose to become politicians or President.

You can pick your party, you can pick your nose; but, you cannot pick your parents or the options you have at birth. Trump was born into a rich family and his father lent him X millions to start his own company. He did and he grew it. This is not about Trump. My parents worked hard and put me through college, that cost a lot, in fact for four years it cost about a quarter of my fathers income. They gave me the freedom to study whatever I wanted. They never told me what courses to take or how I would need to make money, they assumed I would live by my choices and make it because I would have the options I would need to take a good job I did not want until I could afford on my own to take the jobs I wanted for my soul.

I had more options than you. You could not choose to be unnoticed working at a Starbucks. That is not an option in your life. You cannot choose to disappear, you will always be the daughter of your parent. You might like that or hate that; but, we all start somewhere. People may be envious; but, your start was not determined by you. We all start somewhere and it is different for each of us.

WikiLeaks has just released emails from you. Once again you are in the news without having personally done anything wrong. I am so sorry young lady. I do hope that you are shown in a good light personally. Nobody is perfect and your warts may be talked about too. We all start from somewhere and it effects us as we grow. The question is not who we have been or even who we are, it is who do we want to be, what choices will I make. Those you have control over, live your heart and don't choose you because of your parents, choose you because of you.

Exposing The Media's Social Bias Favoring the Establishment

Let us assume that Trump is the Anti-Christ, Nazi jerk. Lets just assume that is all true and that the media is right in vilifying him because he talked about a woman's private parts to another guy on a bus. Assume whatever horrible thing about him you wish. Justify all the harsh criticism and media against him is justified. Here is my simple question, why haven't they taken the same attitude about the swine that bankrupt this country?

JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs and other multinational banks intentionally destroyed this nation and other nations economies and rigged all of the financial markets. Why have we not seen the same outrage over these criminals?

How much time has the media actually spent discussing how jobs are being sent overseas or how these same companies are avoiding paying taxes in the United States compared to how much time they have spent discussing the Kardashians rear-ends or Trump's attitude about women?

I have said before. this election is exposing more about he media and the establishment than about the candidates. Look at how the media ignores the Podesta e-mails or the O'Keefe videos showing Democratic operatives openly discussing rigging the vote and for me that is not the real fear. The real fear is that the electoral college will be manipulated as has been promoted by the Washington Post and others if needed to give Hillary the election.

By the way, I am not talking about during this election, I am talking about since the economic collapse. Not a day goes by in the last year and a half that the media does not spotlight some shortcoming in Trump. How many days have gone by with the media not discussing Jimie Dimon and JP Morgan fixing the markets with nobody going to jail yet?

The party establishment are neither liberal nor conservative, they are all multi-nationalist oligarchs and their supporters. The media is neither liberal nor conservative either, they are the establishment and part of the oligarchy. When six companies own 90% of the media, that is by definition an oligarchical media.

When This Election is Over

This election has been one of the most interesting in history. Contrary to popular belief we have in fact seen more contentious ones; but, this is right up there. After one election Aaron Burr shot Alexander Hamilton. That was a bit more contentious than today and quickly forgotten by our current media.

This election will be over in a scant few days and there will be much to ask about what it all meant and what it means going forward. For me my focus has been the corporate globalist media and their aversion to discussing the issues and choosing to focus on scandal and personality. Their assumption is that the issues will go away after the election, they will not.

Lets start with the simplest thing of all, what do the people really care about. The truth is illegal immigration, the economy and the middle east are at the top of the average persons concerns. Should we secure the border, should we allow illegal aliens to have citizenship while making legal aliens wait years and what effect does this have on employment. Those are real questions, your answer to those questions will vary; but, these are real issues. As for the wars in the middle east the questions are also simple. Should we get out of the middle east, should we accept hundreds of thousands of Muslim immigrants from these countries, should we become more active in the Syria civil war. Again these are all valid questions and attitudes will vary.

The biggest issue is always the same, it is the economy stupid as was said in previous years. Do Americans benefit from the trade deals we have been making? Can we and should we stop outsourcing of jobs overseas, should we put limits on the banking system, should we change the tax code or continue allowing multinational corporations to hide money overseas to avoid taxation. These are long term questions that will affect your children and grandchildren.

When Trump and Sanders jointed this election I said that it was an expression of the same frustrations that led to the Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party movements are they are. The derision that both these movements were met with by the corporate globalist media continued with the Trump and Sanders campaigns. I regret that the media has avoided these issues as it spells the death of well funded news media. While the aging baby boomers may have an inordinate number of voters, the reality is that the future will be determined by the millennials long term and they are not getting a fair deal and they know it.

Regardless of which candidate you personally like, we are not voting for a person, we are voting for the policies they represent and that will tell out. If Hillary wins, we will see the banks continue to go unregulated, an increase in "free trade" agreements that allow jobs to be shipped overseas and an anemic limited reduction in school loan costs at best. If Trump is elected we will see the congress pass trade agreements, he veto and congress override the veto. The neocons in congress have already made it clear that they want more immigration of people into the tech industry and trade agreements that limit the power of the federal government to regulate industry regardless of what Trump proposes.

The reality is that Presidents do not make the laws, congress does. My readers may have noticed that I rarely discuss the current President, that is because he is just one cog in a much bigger machine. That will not change. The truth is things will not change until the parites change and become more democratic (this is true even if new parties emerge).

After this election serious discussion still needs to be had about how the party establishments wanted to ignore the publics vote. If anything the resentment by the corporate media and the party establishment over the citizens having the right to choose what their government does highlights just how little respect they have for democracy and that may be the single biggest issue that has not been addressed.

There is one more thing that will continue to be addressed after this election and that is the media taking sides. It has come out that certain people passed on debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of the debates, that is pretty serious and disturbing. I believe it is going to be impossible for the media to claim that they are even remotely objective when it comes to elections and that is sad. The alternative media does not need to or even attempt to claim objectivity; but, the mass media is only paid attention to because we believe they will at least attempt to provide the facts, that has gone by the wayside. As I have said before, I do not believe it is a liberal media and that is certainly the wrong lesson to learn from this. It is a corporate media owned by globalist interests and has become monopolistic with six companies owning 90% of the media in all of the United States. The nation needs an objective media if it is to be a healthy democracy and after this election, no matter who wins, their bias and slant will still be discussed and remembered even by those who agree with them.

Third Presidential Debate

My opinion, it was a draw. No winner and no loser. It still doesn't matter as the debate was not going to change people's vote unless one of them flipped out. I maybe give a slight advantage to Trump with independents; but, I am not even sure about that.

I want to say this too. I thought the moderator did the best job of any of the many debates by either party. I personally felt he asked both candidates direct and tough questions, managed the time better than the previous moderators and actually made an effort to be objective rather than partisan. I am sorry he did not moderate all of the debates. Tip of the hat Chris Wallace.

The Hypocritical Washington Post and Others

The Washington Post - Lots of Americans agree with Donald Trump about ‘rigged elections’.  The point of the article is that people who believed the system is rigged are conspiracy theorists and that there is no evidence of the election being rigged. Oddly enough, the Washington Post itself recommended rigging the election by violating the integrity of the electoral college. Which I pointed out back in March.

The Washington Post - The electoral college could still stop Trump, even if he wins the popular vote. The Washington Post was not alone in this push.

NY Daily News -  Here’s how the Electoral College could prevent a Donald Trump presidency, even if he wins the popular vote.

The Hill - Republican threatens to deny Trump Electoral College vote

The Daily Beast - Confessions of an Elector: Only 270 Voters Really Get To Decide Who Our Next President Will Be

The Daily Beast - Election Hackers Could Erase You

The Washington Post - Donald Trump says the election is ‘rigged.’ Here’s what his supporters think that means.  The article basically says that Trump supporters believe people will fraudulently vote and then says how this is ridiculous.

Here are two videos of people working for the Hillary campaign outlining how they are attempting to rig the election by having people vote multiple times and by inciting violence at Trump rallies and all kinds of other dirty tricks. How come the Washington Post hasn't discussed this.

Clinton, a Crooked New York Politican and Speeches to the Big Banks.

So suddenly I find I am getting a lot of traffic looking up Elliott Broidy and hits to a post from a couple of years ago about him. I searched to see why Mr. Broidy was in the news again and found out that there is yet another attempt to attack Trump based on his connection to Trump. That connection is that Broidy, who has been a long time fundraiser for the Republicans, is working on the committee that is raising money for the Presidential campaign where half the money goes to the local Republican groups. I wrote about this when it first came up maybe a year ago. I didn't bother following up because there is nothing to follow up on.

Now, it only takes a little reading to see that I am NO friend of Mr. Broidy's and have pointed out his criminality in the past. Heck, one of my major tags is Pension Fraud and that is what he is filed under. Still, today Mr. Broidy and my friends at CIM Group can rest assured that this is not another post about any of them. I may have to get into Mr. Alan Hevesi, the man who solicited the bribes from Mr. Broidy. Nope, I am here to talk about the media and show you how it is playing you and attempting to deflect upcoming WikiLeaks from hurting Hillary. Huffington Post - Trump Won Tax Breaks While Donating Tens Of Thousands To Corrupt Official. Of course, the Observer reported this in 2006, Hillary: Enough Hevesi Already.  A quote from the article, "“This is not a pleasant experience for those of us who are friends of his.”If Mr. Hevesi were elected and then removed or resigned, she said pointedly, the governor is entitled to appoint a successor".

Firstly, there were a bunch of articles in the last couple of days about how Donald Trump contributed to Alan Hevesi's campaign. Okay, doesn't really say anything, a New York businessman contributed to a Democrats political campaign. Did I leave out that Hevesi is a Democrat? Look it up, it is true. Heck, Trump contributed to the Clinton campaigns. Here is an algebra question, if you believe every political campaign Trump contributed was a crook then you believe the Clintons are crooks. Lets look a little deeper. Did you know that the Clintons were friends with Hevesi? That didn't seem to make it into the articles about Trump. In fact, a 2009 article in the New York Daily News was headlined, "Bill Clinton's pal earned huge pension fees: Marvin Rosen's firm got millions during Hevesi reign".

Here is what is coming. WikiLeaks is going to release items showing that the Clintons were working with Hevesi. These articles are a pre-emptive strike. Another article today from the AP tries to show that Hillary attempted to get Bill Clinton to not give a speech to the big banks WHILE she was campaigning in Iowa. MSN - AP - Email: Clinton campaign sought to cancel Wall Street speech.  After "cooling down", according to the article, she later. Wait, the article actually says, if you bother reading it, that Hillary wanted him to still give the speech and only later "cooled down" and told him not to. That is sort of the opposite of what the title of the article implies. Hmmm.

So, what we have are stories in the last couple of days about Hevesi and Trump and Bill Clinton giving highly paid speeches to the banksters while she is working on her campaign in Iowa. Hmmm. I forgot, in the last couple of days I also read an article about how these same banks are afraid that if Hillary wins she will be tough on them. LOL. Yeah. Wouldn't that be biting the hand that feeds you, the same one who you tell the truth to in private while lying to those average American deplorables and basement dwellers?

Yeah, if the Clinton supporters in the media are all talking about the banks, Hevesi and Clinton speeches at the same time then expect WikiLeaks to release something regarding the Clintons ties to these things in the next few days and it will be serious.

Unanswered Questions About Servers

By now we have all heard about Hillary's basement server and how she had it wiped. I used to be over a systems section. You know what they did? They made back up copies of the server on a regular basis, in fact, daily. You make backup copies in case you have to restart the system from scratch.

So, what happened to the backup copies? Did they get destroyed? What is the penalty for destroying evidence? Wait, the people that worked for her were all given immunity by the federal government. Whatever happened to the original Guccifer? Was he given immunity too because I don't remember one story about him going back to jail in his country.

Lets go back to those backup copies of the server. Do you really believe that Hillary had those destroyed too? Not a chance in hell.

A Corrupt Not Liberal Media Bias (Propaganda)

So WikiLeaks has released more e-mails from Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Mr. Podesta. Lets look at some of them.

WikiLeaks - 3-13-2016

Here is a quote from the docurment which was sent to Podesta from Bill Ivey. "“And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry,”

As you watch this election, I want to remind you that it is NOT about Hillary or Trump, it is about how the system works and what the establishment really thinks of citizens of the United States and wants from this country. The conflict is not between the left and right as both sides are controlled by the exact same moneyed interests.

I also want to mention that WikiLeaks released e-mails showing how the corporate media has worked behind the scenes to subvert honest elections and debates. Apparently, one CNN employee leaked questions to Hillary that were to be used in the debates while another moderator at an earlier debate took credit for skewing his treatment of Trump at the debates.

YouTube - Fox - New concerns about possible media collusion with Clinton.


Mediaite - Leaked Email: Then-CNNer Donna Brazile Gave Clinton Camp Heads-Up on CNN Town Hall Question (UPDATED). 

Hillary and Trump are just people, the problem is not them, it is a system that is rigged so that you are kept ignorant and don't get to know the truth only what will cause you to act like good little sheep. The system only has one purpose and that is to protect itself, to protect the privledge that it provides some at the expense of the rest of us.

Thug Life - Trump

There are a series of YouTube videos called "Thug Life" and they just made one with Trump. Here it is.


Sunday, October 9, 2016

The Second Presidential Debate

The lead up was all about some 11 year old secret taping of Trump talking about how he tried to get some lady in Florida to go to bed with him. The media wanted to talk about the words he used, if he was a misogynist (technically Webster' defines it as a hatred of women) and how this "scandal" was going to play out in the debate. The pundits also discussed how this was do or die for Trump and such things.

Well, the debate is over and if I had to pick a winner I would say it was Trump. I also don't think it matters or swayed any votes. Media talking points made by the media to draw viewers just don't matter that much. The fact is that Hillary and many in the media, such as the Huffington Post, have been claiming this for a year and a half plus. Accusing Trump of having slept around is also pointless and he was in the newspapers and magazines when he was a young playboy in New York. He used to hand out at Studio 54 with his dates (sorry if you are too young to remember the late 70s and early 80s) and he was far from alone in doing that. In fact, the Prime Minister of Canada's, at that time, wife used to also attend those parties at that club.

While many politicians are faking a sort of prudish shock, the reality is that millennials do not care one bit about who or how many women Trump slept with. Now, just prior to the debate Trump had the media in a room with four of the women who had slept with Bill Clinton while he was married including one who he settled out of court with.

With all this pre-debate drama, the debate itself was pretty much the same answers we have heard before from both sides. In truth, I don't think any of the debates have changed people's opinions on who they are going to vote for.

The one thing that did disappoint was the moderators failure to get any answers out of Hillary about her call for a North American Union with open borders and open trade. That is a real discussion that should be had, not just in this race; but, in this country because that was the purpose behind the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

For too many years the left and right have divided over social issues while both sides have been hammered by the economic reality of outsourcing jobs and the failure of the political forces to prosecute criminal financial activity by the biggest banks and brokerage firms. I do not care who Hillary slept with or sleeps with, I do not care who Bill slept with or sleeps with and I do not care who Trump slept with or sleeps with. These issues will not effect the lives of my children or grandchildren; but, a North American political, trade and immigration union would.

UPDATE:

As expected the media and the candidates surrogates have traveled to spin town and foolishness prevails. People on the left have said that Trump may have done well at the debate; but, not well enough that he will not still lose. People on the right have said Trump won the debate and has moved the momentum back to him. I didn't think the first debate changed anyone's vote and believe Hillary did better, I didn't think the Vice Presidential changed anyone's vote and thought Pence did better and I don't think the second Presidential debate has changed anyone's vote and believe Trump did better. Here is my question, did any of the debates matter? If none of the debates changed people's votes than why does the media make noise as if it did when they are just taking sides with their preferred candidate, why should we even listen to their stories? My answer is for the amusement factor and so that people can see better how they are lied to and manipulated by the media.

If someone does not know who Trump or Clinton is than they are not going to vote. That is the truth, people who don't know who the candidates are is so removed from politics that they are not voters. Nobody who wants open borders and free trade is going to vote for Trump and George Bush has proven that along with others in the Republican Party that have promoted either Hillary or Johnson. Nobody who is against open borders and the trade agreements is going to vote for Hillary. This is why the battleground is over millennials. Hillary is betting that they are more concerned about social issues so she focuses on Trump not being in line with their views on multiculturalism. Trump believes they are more concerned about jobs and opportunity so that is what he is selling.

Iceland, Dishonest Banks and Debt.

Someone posted a comment on the last post asking what I thought about what happened in Iceland with the banks. Basically, the banks made lots of crazy loans and focused on foreign citizens to move their money to Iceland. That is a really general comment on what happened. This all went on at the same time that our banks were getting into derivatives and other risky investment. For my readers who are not familiar with what happened in Iceland, here is a link.

Wikipedia - 2009 Icelandic financial crisis protests

The people of Iceland were asked to bail out the banks that defaulted and they said no. Their economy recovered and they are now fine. We could have done the same and did not. To be specific, President Bush bailed out the banks with tax dollars from you and me.

I was being asked what I would have done. I would have nationalized any bank that the government had to bail out and taken it's assets just like they do when you don't pay your mortgage. Almost all home loans are now owned by the United States government (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) and if you cannot pay your mortgage the repossess the property. I would also recommend nationalizing companies that do not pay their taxes and instead hide their money overseas. If you don't pay your taxes they can take your property. Why do the rich get treated differently? That is my response to the comment that was left in a little greater detail.

Now, I am going to write about the newest presidential debate for my next post.

How They Try to Avoid Your Choices Mattering

Open Society Foundations - Get the Politics Out of Policing.  The article basically promotes having local police placed under national oversight. Hmmm. I am against militarizing the police and nationalizing them. I like the idea of local control, at least that way we can vote on who the Mayor is and let him know how we want the police to be managed. The bigger trend and the reason behind the weakening of rules on the police is so they will need to be nationalized. In the end, you get to choose whether or not you want all power centralized.

The Daily Caller - Leaked Emails Show Clinton Campaign Coordinating With Soros Organization.  Just so you know, Hillary was working with the Open Society Foundation according to the e-mails released by WikiLeaks.

Bloomberg - This Was the Week the World Got Really Anxious About Globalization's Future.  This is the real issue that is at stake. Just to be clear, the world did not get really anxious, the wealthy did because they are afraid that people might put an end to trade agreements that only hurt the United States and the west.

MSN - Reuters - Sanders supporters seethe over Clinton's leaked remarks to Wall St.  The title is true, here is what the writers say about millennials, "I’d like to meet the Bernie Sanders supporter who is going to say, 'Well I’m a little worried about her on international trade, so I’m going to vote for Donald Trump'," he said."  The truth came out that Hillary is pro open borders, pro free trade agreement and wants a North American Union similar to the European Union. These are not the things she says to millennials, only what she says to wealthy donors.

Hillary Clinton and Open Borders.

Sometimes the Conspiracy Theroists are Correct. The Los Angeles Times in 2007 that the Clintons supported open borders. Bill Clinton was quoted as saying, "Three weeks ago, her husband drew applause at a conference of 14,000 Indian Americans in Washington as he extolled the benefits of "open borders, easy travel, easy immigration." He said the outsourcing debate bothered him because it failed to acknowledge the contributions of Indians who settled in the U.S."

Los Angeles Times - Clinton's free-trade advocacy is hitting labor where it lives

Well, it turns out she still favors those thing. In a speech she gave to an Italian bank she stated, "My dream is of a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders..." That statement comes from one of the hacked e-mails.

Washington Examiner - 'Open trade and open borders': Hacked emails contain transcripts of Clinton paid speeches .

MSN - Washington Post - Hacked emails appear to reveal excerpts of speech transcripts Clinton refused to release.  She is quoted as calling for open borders and having Wall Street regulate itself.

Both Hillary and Bill changed their minds on open borders and now support them. Prior, they had called for building a wall. What changed? What changed was NAFTA and a different vision for America. What Hillary describes is called regionalism and it is nothing new.

It is pretty simple, what the corporate establishment wants to create a about five different regions that have internally open borders (amongst those in the region), open trade and share a common currency and market. Basically she is in favor of creating an American Union similar in scope and approach to the European Union and this is in her words.

The United Kingdom (Britain) voted to leave the European Union because it did not vote for, want or ever agree to over half their laws being written in Brussels by unelected bureaucrats. Trump is not in favor of these things, he just openly discusses it. Those who are in favor of it, like Hillary, only say these things to their donors.

Do you want open borders? Are you angry that their intent to create a North American Union based on the European is not being openly discussed by it's supporters? This and getting rid of monopolies and bringing jobs back to America is what this election is about and neither the media or Hillary Clinton want you to know that or for Americans to have an open discussion about it.

The U.S. corporate media is going to try and avoid discussing this issue; but, it will be picked up by and discussed by Mexican, Canadian and British newspapers. Brexit was about freeing the United Kingdom from the European Union so that they could join the North American Union and this was told to me in the late 1970s by my professor of Intenational Relations, the agenda has not changed and is still not being discussed by the people who will have to live under it, it is not being discussed with the public. Elitists do not tell the unwashed masses what they are really up to, they just play on your emotions and biases.

By the way, I want to talk about the media just a bit more.

Washington Post - Trump recorded having extremely lewd conversation about women in 2005.  The "important" story is that Trump, 11 years ago, talked about how he tried to have sex with some woman. This was during a car trip with someone from the press, it was a private, open conversation. Hillary Clinton has claimed that we cannot possibly elect someone who looks at women like this; but, we did elect her husband who moistened his cigar on a young White House page named Monica Lewinsky and received oral sex in the Oval office.

My readers know that I don't talk about women that way on this blog. I also know that many men and women talk about sex amongst certain members of their gender as if it were sport. Trump was a playboy in New York, I think we all knew that, it was certainly discussed. Kennedy also had mistresses as did Eisenhower and many, many others. Just so happens we don't know if Trump was married at the time he had tried to get this lady to sleep with him. More importantly, we know Hillary is not truly shocked as many women have slept with her husband during their marriage. I don't think this will change anyone's vote, I don't think that is why it is in the news, I think it is in the news so they have an excuse for not discussing the real issue that came out today, that Hillary is for open borders.

As for me, I do not care who Hillary, Trump or Bill has slept with, tried to sleep with or took whatever sexual position with. I care about jobs for younger Americans, controlling our borders and national security and penalizing companies that hide taxes overseas that should be paid here. If it turned out that Hillary was bi-sexual, would it really change your vote, it would not effect mine at all.

The blog has now reached 90,000 hits. Next milestone will be 100,000 hits, never thought I would see that.

Because You Don't Matter, Your Vote Shouldn't Either

Washington Examiner - Trucker shortage prompts calls for driverless big rigs.  You will hear these excuses more and more as the jobs go away. There is NO trucker problem that cannot be cured by paying good people to do a job. What was the last pay increase truckers saw and by how much. If you pay them, they will come. Trucking companies want to go driverless, the rest is just propaganda.

The Mercury News - Fully autonomous self-driving cars get lift from Gov. Jerry Brown   What a shock, you and I are paying to help create the infrastructure for self-driving vehicles and most people still think it is an illusion.

Psychology Today - Autistics as Undomesticated Humans.  Here is the opening line from the article, "Autistic authors often describe themselves as aliens from outer space, but remarkable new research (link is external) by Antonio BenĂ­tez-Burraco, Wanda Lattanzi, and Elliot Murphy suggests that people diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) might more accurately be described as less domesticated members of our own, self-domesticated species." Now, lets just discuss that. I must first admit that I am autistic. Getting past that, consider what we are being told, that some people are not "domesticated" in a world where we self-domesticate. The presumption seems to be that the world works because we control one another, that we live by fear of being different. That is elitism, see it when it rears it's head because baby, you are not one of the elite.

The Atlantic - Humans Won't Ever Live Far Beyond 115 Years.  Something I have been saying for years, the average age has increased; but, the max number of years has not moved at all.

CNBC - World Bank president: Globalization not the root of all evil it's made out to be.  Nope, he thinks it is our salvation and doesn't like Trump or the Brexit and believes those may change the worlds economy by holding back globalization. I didn't know the future of the world was so fragile that Britain being an independent nation could destroy the future or that who we pick as president could destroy countries working together, is America the only country? We are not even the number one producer.

The Hill - Obama rips Trump's 'crude populism'.  The alternative is of course crude elitism, I guess he prefers that. Obama was the first black elitist president and if Hillary wins, she will be the first elitist female president. An elitist is and elitist.

MSN - The Hill - UN makes power play against Donald Trump.  The article is really about how they don't want you to have a say in the rules you live under. It begins by saying how a law will go into effect before we elect our next president and how we can never undo that law. That is bs.

Are You a Polpulist or an Elitist?

We have heard Hillary Clinton and others disparage Sanders and Trump as populists. I thought you might like to know what these terms really mean and why they dislike populism.

Merriam Webster - Populist.  The dictionary definition of populist.

1:  a member of a political party claiming to represent the common people; especially often capitalized :  a member of a United States political party formed in 1891 primarily to represent agrarian interests and to advocate the free coinage of silver and government control of monopolies
2 :  a believer in the rights, wisdom, or virtues of the common people.

Merriam Webster - Elitist. The dictionary definition of Elitist. 

1. leadership or rule by an elite
2. the selectivity of the elite; especially :  snobbery <elitism in choosing new members>
3. consciousness of being or belonging to an elite

In the end one is either a populist or an elitist. The fact is that the media, academia, corporatists and globalists are all elitist and if you disagree with them then they view you as ignorant and a populist, part of the great unwashed masses. The fact of the matter is that elitists do not like democracy, nor do they believe in the popular vote. They believe you should listen to you betters and do what you are told. That is what the Sanders and Trump candidacies were really about.

Search the terms "danger of populism" and you will find hundreds of articles that all come down to the establishments fear of democracy. The fact of the matter is that the establishment is elitist and does not want to hear from the population unless it is to say yes to our masters. Super delegates and other attempts to subvert the popular vote are elitist and those who engage in such activities detest the average person and see them as inferiors.

The vast majority of people go along with the system and accept their lives with little complaint; but, when it is upended too much they get resentful. That is what we have been seeing for the past decade since the elites decided to crash the economy to their advantage. Globalism is an elitist philosophy to further diminish your vote. The rejection of this type of tyranny was seen in the Brexit vote and the elitists are afraid that a Trump presidency would further weaken their stranglehold on the decision making process. Understand the terms and when someone talks bad about populism remember that means they are anti-democratic and elitist.

So, what do populists and elitists believe at this time. Well, populists believe in national sovereignty, they believe in the right of the people to ultimately make the decisions about under what type of law they will be governed, they believe that all people shall be subject to the same law rather than preference for one over the other and they believe we should all benefit when the country does well. Elitists believe that we should eliminate all borders, that people should not decide what the rules are; but, that your betters should and that the rules should be different if you are part of the system. It is not just about money.

You cannot join the Bohemian Grove just because you can pay the fee, you cannot attend the Bilderberg Meetings just because you have money or are an elected official, you cannot join the CFR and attend it's meetings just because you have money or are an elected official, you cannot be a member of the Tri-lateral Commission just because you have money or are an elected official. There are many organizations deciding what is best for you that you cannot earn your way into unless you will support their agenda. These organizations are all undemocratic and many of your elected officials participate in them without telling you what is discussed. They will say it is kept secret so that people can talk freely, in a democracy we should all talk freely and hear what the other side has to say, that makes for an informed populace.

In case you are wondering, liberals can be elitists and conservatives can be elitists, it knows no party or philosophy and exists within them all. Elitists can be religious in nature or atheistic in nature, all groups can choose to be run by elitists or by the majority. The way to know if you are an elitists is to ask yourself a very simple question, if I were in charge would I seek to impose my will on others and nit care if the majority of us disagreed with my choices. Basically what we are seeing from Washington which has sold out to corporate and moneyed interests.

The 2016 Vice Presidential Debate

I did not watch it, I watched something entertaining instead. I didn't watch it because I already know that I don't want either of them to ever be president. I wrote about them weeks ago and nothing has changed. It also does not matter. Presidential debates rarely effect the outcome and Vice Presidential debates almost never. You might want to know that both Vice Presidential candidates favor the free trade deals and tax rules that benefit companies that outsource to other countries, I have no use for either of them.

What I did watch afterwards was The Young Turks (a socialist website that wants Hillary to win; but, would have preferred Sanders) and Stephen Colbert on tonight's show. The Democratic VP, Kaine, must have done really badly because even they conceded that Kaine did a really bad job. Truth is, it doesn't matter, I doubt many watched or that it will effect the outcome of the race. Let's say Kaine did the worst ever and Pence did the best ever, will that change your vote? Do you really believe it will change anyone's? If the Presidential debate between did not change anyone's opinion then why would you believe the VP one would? It won't matter.

The reality is that the corporate media is attempting to kill Trump with the death of a thousand cuts and it is not working. Hillary and Trump are tied and according to the LA Times and USC Trump is actually ahead. The media response is to say that online polls conducted by CNN and others pushing an agenda make this a fuzzy issue or that Hillary is still in front, she is not. I don't have the readership to move the dial on this election, I am focused on showing how the media attempts to manipulate the outcome and the reasons why they care.

The media is now owned by multinational corporations. Start with that whenever you try and analyze what is in their interest to promote. The six companies that own 90% of all the mass media are better off when they promote open borders and free trade agreements FOCUSED ON COPYWRITE LAW. The trade agreements give an advantage to American companies by increasing copyright protection; but in exchange they give an advantage to foreign companies when it comes to manufacturing.

UPDATE:

Here is the full debate.

YouTube - The Vice-Presidential Debate: Tim Kaine And Mike Pence (Full Debate) | NBC News

Well, even though it does not matter, I can see why even the liberals did not like Kaine's performance. Watch the video, the moderator was horrible, she interrupted Pence while answering  and as he was being interrupted by Kaine. Wow. Kaine for his part represented his position and self very badly. I don't like Pence because of his position on trade; but, he did a much better job than Kaine. I still don't believe that the debates change how people are going to vote; but, Pence did well.I don't expect the media to waste much time on this debate only because of how badly Kaine did. Still doesn't matter. People have made up their mind about who they support and additional media lies and spin are unlikely to effect the outcome.

Let me simplify this election, this election is about people who think they have been getting taken advantage for years and whether or not you can convince them that trying to change things is worse than going along with being screwed. People want change, Hillary offers none. That is what this election is about.

Clinton, Trump and Cuba

At the moment the corporate media is attempting to convince people in Florida that Trump illegally conducted business in Cuba. Hillary Clinton herself has pushed this agenda; but, it is untrue and dishonest.

Let's start with this. Hillary Clinton called for lifting the embargo on Cuba as stated in her own book. The fact is that this is not being reported shows just how disingenuous the media is.

The Washington Post - On Cuba, it’s Hillary Clinton versus Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio.  The article is from 2014. Maybe the media just has a short memory. Oh, you can search the internet and find many stories that were written at the time. Here is a line from the article, "Every step of the way, we faced vocal opposition from some members of Congress who wanted to keep Cuba in a deep freeze. But I remained convinced that this kind of people-to-people engagement was the best way to encourage reform in Cuba and that it was profoundly in the interests of the United States and the region. This thinking, Clinton wrote, is what led her to ultimately recommend to Obama that he consider lifting the embargo, which he now has called on Congress to do."

As for Trump, there is no evidence that he has ever called for lifting the embargo on Cuba. The so called "business" he conducted was sending down some of his people to Cuba, we do not know the exact reason for the trip; but, it was not illegal and he made NO business arrangements or deals. These things are facts and not innuendo.

Again, the focus should be on the media and not on Clinton or Trump's position on Cuba. The fact is that Obama has already begun lifting the embargo and opening Cuba up to travel. Now, personally I am in favor of ending the Cuban embargo and allowing travel there. If you can trade with Vietnam and China (which by the way just threatened the United States - CNBC - US will pay price for THAAD deployment, Beijing mouthpiece People's Daily says) why can't we trade with Cuba?

The current corporate talking points are not about Cuba, they are just an attempt to get Cuban votes for Hillary and the Democratic party. The disgusting part is that the media is playing along rather than trying to present you with the facts so you can make up your own mind.

Hillary Calls For Gerrymandering.

In the last two days there has been a lot written about how Hillary Clinton dismissed millennials as cellar dwellers. Here is the actual audio.

YouTube - [LEAKED AUDIO] Hillary Clinton Calls Sanders Supporters Basement Dwellers.

What has not been discussed is more important. At 2:32 she says that in order to have a revolution the Democrats have to have control of the senate and the house of representatives. We have had the Democrats in control of both and nothing changed. We have had the Republicans in charge of both and nothing changed. A vote for any establishment candidate means nothing changes. The worst comment she made is at 2:44 she says the way to take back the house is to redistrict in order to give an advantage to Democrats. Another word for redistricting is gerrymandering and it is illegal. Redistricting is just another way of denying people the power of their vote. It is anti-democracy.


Millenials and Clinton

I am going to tell you a secret, Hillary Clinton does not get the youth vote. Nope, millennials do not like her, trust her or believe she will create jobs for them. That last part is the key, millennials know they are getting screwed and they know the status quo does not benefit them. Her response to them is to say that they live in their parents basements (yes, she is actually on tape saying that) or that millennial men are Bernie bros who go to his events just to get women. Wow.

Here is the issue for millennials and it is not college tuition. The issue for millennials is whether or not there will be good jobs for them that they can retire from, that is the new American dream. They don't dream about a three bedroom house with a white picket fence and three children, they dream about a job that lets them live in an apartment by themselves and not need roommates, they dream about being able to promote if they work hard. They dream about having a decent future and being able to retire someday. I don't consider that outrageous or privileged. Hillary is not offering that or even coming up with plans that are aimed at that.

The above is why millennials went for Sanders or Trump; but, not Hillary or Jeb. The media is owned by six multinational corporations and they have never cared for Sanders, millennials or Americans. The millennials were the first to complain about the trade agreements and protest them, they were ridiculed by the media. The millennials were the founders of the Occupy Movement and the media made fun of them. The millennials voted for Sanders and Trump and the media made fun of them.  Tonight I watched both Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert make fun of millennials for not supporting Hillary, yeah, good luck in the ratings long term, they will remember your mocking them. Contrary to what these two idiots think, millennials know they are getting screwed and they are right that Hillary won't even attempt to change that as she is a corporatist. Hey, Meyers, Colbert, you are now officially whores of the corporate media, you know, that thing you used to make fun of until you joined it to make millions. No wonder you side with politicians who have also sold their souls.

By the way, did you know that Hillary had called for a wall to be built between Mexico and the United States? Yep and a very liberal person named Jimmy Dore even posted the video and he intends to vote for Hillary. If you want to see where she said it go to 1:50 into the video, that is the first video of her talking about it, wait a minute and you can see the second one where she actually says a wall.


Remember the real focus in on the media. Lets talk about them a little bit more. Lets start with this video of celebrities telling who you can and cannot vote for, not who they support but who you cannot vote for.

YouTube - IMPORTANT - Save The Day


 There are other people who think they can demand that you vote for someone.

USA Today - USA TODAY's Editorial Board: Trump is 'unfit for the presidency'.  Here is a quote from the article, "Whatever you do, however, resist the siren song of a dangerous demagogue. By all means vote, just not for Donald Trump."

Geez, isn't it nice to have so many celebrities and people in power telling you who you are not allowed to vote for? Now here is the real question, who the hell are these people to say who we can and cannot vote for? Do they not believe in democracy? I do not tell my friends who wish to vote for Hillary that they cannot or attempt to shame them, that is tyrannical behavior. I don't even bother telling people who like Hillary about all of her crimes or flaws.

It is funny how the most "liberal" of us are the most dismissive of millennials, of the young people who will have to live in this country when we die off. Those in power seek to leave them a country where only college graduates have good jobs and few middle class people will be able to afford college. If you don't have connections you will not get an even halfway decent job. That is what millennials are being left with. Oh, I forgot and the people competing for those jobs will be from other countries because the Democratic party believes in open borders today.

Here is the amusing part. The mass media is killing itself because it is alienating it's future viewers, the millennials. It is a shame, when we had a diversified media and news was not entertainment, it thrived. Now that six companies own 90% of our media we only hear the same talking points as are used by the establishment and the young people have noticed. Goodbye heyday of newspapers. Goodbye heyday of broadcast news. Goodbye sensible diversity. Monopolies destroy true freedom of thought and action.
