Here’s Why Millennials Distrust Hillary Clinton - The Ring Of Fire Farron Cousins

In my last post I critiqued Farron Cousins proclaiming that people shouldn't be talking about Hillary Clinton any more.

 So here he is criticizing Hillary last year at which point he and I would have been in agreement. But during that time more details about Hillary's questionable activities have been revealed. Yes he is correct we are all sick of hearing about Hillary because in large part nothing has happened . But the law suit against the DNC is still on going and the political system is still corrupt in general. The DNC establishment are still in denial a year later about why they lost the election. They still want to blame the Russians, Trump, Bernie Bros, Bernie, Jill Stein, sexism etc. They refuse to accept that it was in fact not necessarily Hillary's turn.

And Hillary and the DNC need to be made to face some form of justice for rigging the primary and for trashing Bernie Sanders . At the least they owe Bernie Sanders and his some 15 million supporters a real apology. So is that asking too much.Instead they still act as if they were justified in all they did which is why many people are still obsessed with Hillary and the DNC..


 "Published on 20 Sep 2016 The latest polls show Hillary Clinton’s support among Millennials falling even further, and her outreach to the 18 – 34 age group has been pathetic, to say the least. The problem is that she absolutely doesn’t understand how badly the policies of the last 16 years have hurt this age group."

A critique Of "The Hillary Clinton Obsession Needs To End-Farron Cousins at Ring Of Fire "


So are Americans just supposed to accept the fact that both political parties are corrupt and cannot be trusted and rarely if ever represent average citizens but rather one elitist group or another.
And so is the message to young Americans the fix is in the system is rigged and that average Americans must give up their aspirations for those of some establishment elite and their corporate and Wall St. cronies.
So politics is a mug's game so just don't bother unless you want to be a lackey for the rich and powerful and if you play your cards right you too can use the system by hook or crook to enrich yourself and your friends and bugger the rest of the citizenry. I guess that Political Science 101 in the USA.

Commentator at Ring of Fire Farron Cousins is sick he says of the constant talk about Hillary Clinton . He claims he is not defending her but some of his arguments do tend to side with Hillary.
Farron ignores how serious and troubling these issues are . They strike at the heart of America's notion of a Fair and free democracy . Instead we discover the USA is now an oligarchy run by Democratic Party and Republican Party establishment and their donors. Bernie's great crime was he tried to defy the establishment and acted as though the system was fair and just and the best person would win instead the fix was in. Compare to a horse race where doping is the issue or a boxing match in which one person is told to take the fall except Bernie was left in the dark.

Farron ignores that Hillary acted unethically and may have committed crimes when it comes at least to her handling of official government emails while secretary of state. We also know there are some still big lingering questions over the Clinton Foundation and her pay to play scam.
Hillary erased hard drives or used hammers on hard drives and on a dozen portable hand devices .
We also know Hillary colluded with the DNC establishment, and various associates along with the mainstream Media to bolster her campaign during the primaries and used various dirty tricks to defeat Bernie Sanders and this continued into the Democratic Party Convention where the DNC contravened a number of its own bylaws and regulations to keep Bernie supporters without a real voice.

If this had all been done fairly then most Bernie supporters would have had to just accept defeat but the whole thing was rigged from beginning to end.

Many of those involved are still working in and with the party and appear this week hoping for Hillary 2020 or a Clinonite Clone and the party base are told to accept whomever these men and women of the establishment decide as the new leader in some smoke filled backroom and they tell the base to just shut up and take it.

The attitude is that for someone to want to end these shenanigans, dirty tricks and corruption within the Democratic Party is characterized as mere wishful thinking at the least and at worse UNAMERICAN.

What Cousins also ignores is that just last week Rachel Maddow and other Hillary surrogates are proclaiming that the main reason Hillary lost the election was due to Trump and Putin /Russian collusion with a host of operatives in the USA. Maddow claims those who retweeted or posted any negative articles about Hillary on social media were in fact acting on behalf of the Russian government and the Russian/Putin/Trump/ Bernie cabal to defeat Hillary . Maddow appeared to suggest rounding up people who may have been acting on behalf of Russia or Macedonia to rig the US election . In other words when people RT'd a negative article about Hillary or if they read and discussed documents leaked by Wikileaks or the Intercept or some other outfit they were engaged in treasonous acts.

Donna Brazile and others have suggested even reading Wikileaks leaked documents of Hillary and John Podesta etc. emails was an act of treason . CNN Jake Tapper also chimed in telling people it was not legal to read emails at the wikileaks public site on the internet. This Mr. Cousins is how far down the rabbit hole we now are . A couple of days ago Donna Brazile referred to the Russian government as being Communist since she has been asleep at the wheel since 1990 along with the rest of the NeomcCarthyite RussiaPhobe establishment in the DNC and in the Mainstream Media. anyway I have more to say after the video of Mr. Cousins at Ring of Fire.

"...Published on 23 Jul 2017 Whether it is Trump supporters still whining about Hillary Clinton, progressives saying she should be prosecuted, or establishment Democrats complaining about the election, it seems like you just can’t escape the talk of Hillary Clinton.

It is time to end it – no more talking about Hillary Clinton. Those days are gone, and we ALL need to move on. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this. Ring of Fire needs your help!

Cousins begins in this way:

If you want to know how to immediately get a group of people to turn on one another, just say this phrase, Hillary Clinton. The reason I bring that up is because I am getting so tired of seeing articles, going on social media, and seeing anybody talking about Hillary Clinton. There is no reason, and I understand the irony of talking about Hillary Clinton while I'm saying stop talking about Hillary Clinton, but there is no reason anyone should be talking about Hillary Clinton. That's why I'm talking about it today. We have three different groups of people right now talking about Hillary Clinton.

First of all, the Trump folk, the Republicans. Trump is out there tweeting out on a near daily basis, "Hillary did this thing with the Russians, why aren't we going after her?" So the Republican base says yeah Hillary for jail. Let's investigate her. Let's do all these things. The investigation that took place before was fraud, it was a sham. Well no, it wasn't. Hillary Clinton, in spite of being a horrible candidate, she did go through hell with these investigations. No evidence came up, it's over. That's how investigations work. You may not like it, but that's the U.S. system of justice. Justice was served. Justice was done. She was free to go. Republicans, let it go. There is no reason why any of you should ever utter the name Hillary Clinton again.

Now the second group, the kind of hard core progressives that are still out there saying Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted. No. Why? Why are you still talking about Hillary Clinton? How is she relevant to what is happening in this country today? She lost the election. She was a bad candidate, I agree with you. She ran a horrible campaign, I agree with you. She was the wrong candidate, I agree with you. But let it go. There is nothing productive, nothing of substance that comes out of hammering on Hillary Clinton every day, just bashing her, beating her up. Move on! There are plenty of people in D.C. on both the left and the right that we can talk about all day long, people that actually are writing laws, doing things that affect our daily lives. Instead, some people feel that their time is better spent going after a woman who's not even in politics anymore, hopefully will never be again in the future. She's just out there doing whatever.

That brings me to the third group of people. The I'm still with her people. I appreciate your enthusiasm for a candidate. I get it, I do, but when you're out there actively attacking people like Bernie Sanders to make yourselves feel better. Saying that, "Hillary Clinton is so much better than her and Bernie is a sellout. Bernie's just in it for himself. Bernie's a communist." You're attacking the only senator who is out there going out and speaking to Americans in all areas. He's not staying in his home state just talking to the people who've elected him over and over and over again. He's not just talking to his friends. He's out there talking to people who disagree with them. He's trying to get them to change their mind. Not about him, but about the policies of the Republican and Democratic parties. He is being a true leader, and you're attacking him because I'm still with her. Let it go. Hillary Clinton lost. You refuse to acknowledge the reasons for her campaign failures, so let it go."



I really like Farron Cousins and others at Ring of Fire and some of the people at TYT and agree with them on a host of issues but when it comes to Hillary cheating Bernie Sanders they appear to treat this as no big deal and cynically call it politics as usual in other words we are supposed to just accept this corrupt system and then move on.

But millions of American especially young Americans gave their all to fight for Bernie Sanders only to learn they had wasted their time, energy and money because the system was and is rigged. For decades I have been hearing people trash young people for not being politically active but last year the young were mobilized and then the establishment and even some well meaning people slapped their faces and spit in their eye and told them to wise up because the system and policies and platforms are never going to fundamentally change.

What Mr. Cousins forgets is that Hillary and Obama and the DNC establishment are still working behind the scenes to ensure no real progressive policies are taken seriously by the elites or the Media or the public. In California the Democrats are doing all they can as they are in other states to stop progressives policies such as single payer /Universal Healthcare because the Dems establishment is against these policies and Hillary last year said there will never be universal healthcare in the USA. But she was also against a large increase in the minimum wage and she is still against decriminalizing or legalizing Marijuana. Hillary and the DNC are still pro-gun, pro-police, have a patronizing out dated attitude towards various groups such as Blacks, Hispanics, LGBTQ, Native Americans , they are pro-fracking , pro-pipelines , pro-NAFTA type deals and they are the WAR PARTY. As for Obama besides Obamacare what did he do start five more wars , crush Libya , promote illegal coups and regime change in other sovereign nations ie Ukraine, Honduras while pandering to the brutality of Israel and Saudi Arabia and ignoring the plight of the people in various nations such as Bahrain.

So it is now as simple as merely going after Hillary. Hillary is just a symptom of a deeper more serious entrenched problem of the corporate establishment that only wants to throw the odd crumb to people and to point how bad the other guy is rather than being committed to significan substantive change. Part of the problem is that the Republicans unable really to criticize most of the Democratic Party or Hillary Clinton's actions and policies because there was and is little difference between the two official political parties. For progressives and others it is not about Benghazi or even about her sloppy habits about storing and sharing government documents. The issues have to do with what was revealed in the leaked emails. While secretary of State Hillary Clinton ran a pay to play scam using her husband , her daughter, her friends and the Clinton Foundation and used the DNC as her personal campaign and Public relations Head quarters. We know she and the DNC colluded illegally and unethically to undermine the Bernie Sanders campaign and to further malign all those who supported Bernie and those who supported anyone besides Hillary. Yes there is a serious law suit going on it was not started in order to get back the 27$ donated to Bernie as Cenk Yugur and others at TYT or other Faux Progressives proclaim .

The law suit is about fraud or breach of trust. The DNC HQ claimed to be impartial and fair to both candidates but this was not the case. Much of the money that went to the DNC or Bernie ended up in the coffers of Hillary's campaign invarious ways. Secondly before the primaries began the DNC and other insiders decided Hillary was to be the candidate and Hillary worked out a deal so that a large number of super-delegates had promised her their votes in the primaries and this fact was not communicated to the public at large or to Bernie Sanders and his 15 million supporters . We found this out due to the leaked Emails of Hillary, the DNC, Debbie Wassermann Schultz, Donna Brazile, John Podesta, Robbie Mook and a host of others . The fix was in . Just because this happened in the past that is almost a year ago which is rather recent doesn't mean there shouldn't be justice .

The reason for wanting some form of justice is so the DNC and Democratic Party establishment can be held accountable and that the party needs to clean up its act otherwise US voters are left with two corrupt parties and no where else to go so millions will again settle for the lesser of two evils and millions more will just not bother to vote. The American system is broken.



Syria Gas Attack and Russian Election Hacking...Debunking Fake News With...

Published on 21 Jul 2017

Former Marine Intelligence Officer and former UN Chief Weapons Inspector for Iraq, Scott Ritter, joins the Liberty Report today to explain why in his vast intelligence and WMD experience he believes the "Russia hacking" US Intel Report is bogus and why the "Assad used gas" conventional wisdom is just more fake news.
Ritter's expertise sheds much-welcome actual light onto these two vexing issues, where so much empty speculation seems to drive the thinking.

DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ CLAIMS SHE DIDN'T KNOW SETH RICH BUT SHARED MEM...


Here's the damning video of Debbie Wasserman Schultz attending and speaking at Seth Rich vigil in 2016. DWS proclaims what a great person and valued employee and colleague he was.
 Now she claims she didn't know Seth Rich.
So she either lied at the Vigil for Seth Rich or is lying now other way this should at least be a public relations nightmare for DWS and her supporters at the Democratic Party.

By denying knowing Seth Rich DWS has merely added more fodder to the Seth Rich murder case . Why would she bother to publicly make the claim she didn't know Seth Rich.

  Seth Rich Vigil : Debbie Wasserman Schultz

American Taliban- reposted May 2017

American Taliban- The Religious Right since the 1980s til now has grown in numbers and influence throughout American culture and government including amateur and professional sports, the public schools , the US military and the Pentagon and privatized armies led by Christian Zealots such as Erik Prince of former BlackWaterInc. etc.
The Religious Right that is Evangelical Christian individuals and ministries and right wing think tanks have signaled their wholehearted support of the current president  that is President Donald Trump.

 The wars taking place in the Middle East and elsewhere are supported and fueled by the Religious Right's agendas of spreading Christianity , Capitalism and the American Way while disparaging the religions of non-Christians and in the case Islam demonizing all of Islam and all Muslims as representing and being controlled by Satan .

 It appears most Americans including those in the US government have no problem with this spread of Christian Zealotry since many Americans have been told on a daily basis that their country, their values and their religion are superior to all other nations.
For instance presidents and would be presidential candidates of both parties are expected to promote the idea that America is an exceptional nation or that it is the Indispensable nation which has been chosen by God. So the belief is that what is good for America is good for the world .

So when America and its allies NATO and the EU drop bombs in foreign countries these bombs are dropped in the name of God or Jesus and this is all part of God's plan or a matter of Manifest Destiny .So the enemies or even critics of America or of American foreign policies is a critique in their view of God or of America's historical right to rule over all the nations of the Earth.

 Even Hillary Clinton has argued that only a prayerful person who walks in the ways of God/Jesus is truly qualified to be president of the USA. Hillary is connected BTW to the fanatical Doug Coe and The Family who are Christian Zealots who believe that their ministry is to be aimed at the rich and powerful because they are the elect or chosen of God and whatever they do is therefore part of God's plan. Doug Coe and the Family are mostly known by their sponsorship and organizing of the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington.

@Maddow 's Faux BernieBros MEME: Survey busts Bernie Bro myth once and for all via @TYTNation

The establishment Democrats and Hillary Clinton and her surrogate Media personalities such as Rachel Maddow for over a year now have been promulgating the False MEME of the Bernie Bros to marginalize the Bernie Sanders campaign which threatened the Hillary Clinton campaign.

To defeat Bernie Hillary's campaign used various dirty tricks to undermine his message and his campaign calling Bernie some sort of Flaky Socialist, they used his Jewish heritage to attack him especially in Southern States as they also accused him of being an atheist which they believed to be the ultimate smear even though there is not supposed to be a religious test for a political office ; yet Hillary herself said during the campaign that only a true believer in Jesus should be the next president.

One of the tactics they used was to falsely claim that most of Bernie supporters were angry white misogynist men in their 20s . Now a new study by Harvard shows the Bernie Bros narrative as false .
Of course now Hillary and Maddow will either ignore the study or claim the researchers are biased towards Bernie and are possibly dupes of Putin and Russia and the Commie fifth columnists inside the USA.

Maddow having lost her mind now sees commies and Putin dupes everywhere.


Published on 24 Apr 2017 Help us cover the political revolution: http://www.patreon.com/TYTNation
"The survey, conducted by Harvard University and The Harris Poll, disproves the “Bernie Bro” trope with hard numbers.

According to the survey results, which were conducted among 2,027 registered voters between April 14 and April 17, 2017, Sanders is actually more popular among women, African Americans, Hispanics, and Asian Americans than white people and men.

The poll shows 55 percent of men and 52 percent of whites approve of Bernie Sanders. However, Sanders is approved by 73 percent of African Americans, 68 percent of Hispanics, 62 percent of Asian Americans, and 58 percent of women. And even though Sanders identifies as independent, 80 percent of Democrats approve of him."

"SHATTERED" 24 Hours After Losing to Trump, Hillary Camp Crafted Russia Narrative

BREAKING: Trump Drops Largest Non-Nuclear Bomb In Afghanistan M.O.A.B.

So is there some Biblical nefarious or just a reference to the Bible in the name MOAB-
Is the blast supposedly equivalent to the Biblical story of Jahweh/Jehovah blowing up Sodom and Gomorrah.

Was MOAB dropped to kill the so called infidels nonbelievers from the point of view of Jews and Christians/

According to the biblical account, Moab and Ammon were born to Lot and Lot's elder and younger daughters, respectively, in the aftermath of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. The Bible refers to both the Moabites and Ammonites as Lot's sons, born of incest with his daughters (Genesis 19:37-38).

Moab - Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moab

Means "of his father" in Hebrew. In the Old Testament this is the name of a son of Lot. He was the ancestor of the Moabites, a people who lived in the region calledMoab to the east of Israel.


References to the religion of Moab are scant. Most of the Moabites were polytheists like other early Semites, and the Book of Numbers says that they induced the Israelites to join in their sacrifices. Their chief god was Chemosh, and the Israelites sometimes referred to them as the "people of Chemosh."

Trump drops M.O.A.B. Mother of All Bombs - Mainstream Media will be delighted .

Rachel Maddow , Brian Williams , Chris Hayes. Chris Matthews, MSNBC, CNN will be over the moon for another war mongering Orgasmic moment as kill who knows how many innocents but it is in the name of America and Christian Western Imperialism all in the name of Jesus.

America and NATO only drop Jesus Bombs to enlighten the world.

A great Easter Gift for the people of Afghanistan .

But it will prove to the Democratic Party War Party that Trump's one of them after all and the War Profiteers will celebrate their stocks will go through the roof.

One wonders how many Mainstream Journalist themselves have investments in the Big War Profiteering companies such Lockheed Martin or Boeing etc.

Anyway Emma Vigeland at TYT politics shares her views and her outrage at this massive unforgivable use of Force.

"Streamed live 10 hours ago

TYT Politics Producer Emma Vigeland (https://twitter.com/EmmaVigeland) did a YouTube Live report on the breaking news that President Donald Trump dropped a 21,000 pound bomb in eastern Afghanistan. The bomb is known as the MOAB, or "mother of all bombs", because it is the United States' largest non-nuclear bomb."

Obama's Leak Investigations - Wikileaks Damning Release on Obama's Suppr...


Jamarl Thomas comments on revelations that President Obama used the Intelligence agencies to go after any members of the press who were critical of his administration.

Obama and his supporters and apologist are hypocrites when they ignore Obama's actions as president attacking the press while claiming that President Trump has been attacking the press.

Jamarl notes most of what Trump has done is for the most part just talk and rhetoric while President Obama in actuality in real time did all he could to suppress the Press and the media .

" Published on 22 Mar 2017

"Wikileaks releases document showing the Obama's administration unbridled assault on the press, particularly investigative journalist. If you're going to be consistent, this is a big deal. How does the fourth estate provide the means for civilian oversight of the government when that government is taking measures to assault and limit the functioning of that institution. "
