2017 election results: victory for the left

By Joseph Ballin 11/15/ 2017 6:59 AM EST

For all the Hillarybots out there, I have just one question for you. Do you think we would have seen the left wing landslide win we saw last week if Hillary Clinton was president? As Jimmy Dore pointed out several times, Trump is a disaster, Trump can’t get anything done, he is destroying the Republican Party, and it’s better we get an ineffective fascist now, than an effective fascist later.

Andrea Jenkins (Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party) was elected to the 8th Ward of the Minneapolis City Council. She is first African American openly trans woman to be elected to office in the United States. She was endorsed by Our Revolution. She’s very active in the trans community, including Trans Lives Matter. She’s a civil rights icon and a personal hero of mine.

Lee Carter (Democratic Party/Democratic Socialists of America) was elected to the 50th district of the Virginia House of Delegate. He beat Jackson Miller, the majority whip for the Republicans in the Virginia House of Delegates. He won with almost no support from the Virginia Democratic Party.

Larry Krasner (Democratic Party) was elected 26th District Attorney (DA) of Philadelphia. He beat Republican Beth Grossman. A lot of people don’t know DAs have vast power, they can choose which cases they want to peruse or not. Larry is pro-BLM, anti-death penalty (won’t hear a single death penalty case), anti-war on drugs, pro-Occupy wallstreet, wants to reign in the police.

Seema Singh Perez (Democratic Socialists of America) was elected to Third district of the Knoxville City Council. She is the first Indian-American elected council member.

Maine Question 2 was passed by Maine voters over the objections of Governor Paul LePage (biggest douche in a governorship). It expands Medicaid in the state of Maine. This is very good because Maine is an older state, a lot of Medicaid goes to pay for costs of old folks homes. LePage wants to delay this as much as possible just like anything else he touches.

Other interesting notes from this election. The Washington state legislature flipped Democratic and the Virginia House of Delegates is still in recount over who controls the chamber. In the Georgia state legislature, Democrats won three key seats there, making Republicans lose their super majority there.

Dennis Rodman is trying to save the planet

The one thing I can’t stand about liberals is how whenever North Korea is brought up their brains turn off. I cannot understand why. It reminds me alot of Saddam. Alot of liberals said they opposes the Iraq War cause Saddam didn’t have WMDs. So my question is, would you support the Iraq War if Saddam did have WMDs? So the hypocrisy from liberals on this issue is overwhelming. The reason I’m picking on liberals is because we expect better. I don’t expect anything good from Trump. Trump is a neanderthal who’s taking back to the 1950s, like announcing today to bring back the cold war on Cuba.

Anyway back to North Korea. Dennis Rodman, sponsored by Hempcoin, has landed in Pyongyang. Now this makes good late show comedy, but in a time when all out nuclear war could start at any second, we should be praising Rodman for doing this. Regardless of what you even think of North Korea or Kim Jong Un, we shouldn’t be pushing for more belligerency with them. Imagine if China had it’s navy do military drills right off our coast, meanwhile have thousands of troops in Canada. The US would fucking freak the fuck up and nuke the planet if that happened.

Back to liberals for one second. So whenever North Korea is brought up people always say “well North Korea is insane and not a rational actor, so we have to take them out.” My response is North Korea is a rational actor. Having nukes to protect their country from regime change is a rational action for the leadership of North Korea. They saw what happened in Libya, Iraq, and Syria for regimes without nuclear weapons. Nor would North Korea ever use those nuclear weapons in an offense manner, it would lead to the death of pretty much every living person in North Korea as a whole. Where is the rationality in that?

Dennis Rodman is going to North Korea, not because he’s this secretly working for the US government to help release Otto Warmbier. I think Rodman generally has a friendship with Kim Jong Un, despite the national differences between the two. And I think Kim Jong Un feels the same. That and I think Rodman is going over there to smug back a shit ton of weed from North Korea back to the US.

The Crimes of Donald Trump

The one thing I hate most about being American is the hypocrisy of our views towards life and rule of law. This brings me to Donald Jay Trump, a guy you may have heard of. So Trump paints himself as his good moral god fearing Christian man who cares about muh fetuses, while on the side grabbing pussy. However, Trump has no problem dropping drones on innocent people while the orange cunt eats chocolate cake in Mar-a-Lago. I do not know the exact numbers of innocents murdered under the fascist Trump regime. The Obama regime considered any male 16 years or older killed as “terrorists”. It is hard to tell when the US is propping up proxy regimes like Egyptian General Sisi and funding secret covert terrorists in Syria since 2005. If I had to estimate he’s killed at least a couple thousand if not ten thousand innocent people since January 20.

For all the Trump voters out there who thought he was the peacenik to Hillary’s war mongering, where are you now? He’s given the CIA and generals the power to kill anyone at any time and deploy US ground troops to any country at any time. We’ve seen an massive escalation in drone strikes under the Trump regime, along with a $100 billion arms deal for Saudi Arabia. There is a build up of US ground troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, along with deployment of US ground troops in Syria and Somalia. He allowed his generals to drop MOAB on Afghanistan and we still do not know how many people were killed from that strike because nobody has been allowed anywhere near the blast. And he is pushing us towards war with North Korea and Iran, all while striking the Syrian government over a chemical attack committed by the al-Qaeda white helmets. Relations with Russia are at the worst they have ever been and we are already probably in a new cold war with them. Trump’s foreign policy is basically a return back to the times of the Golden Horde.

Again all of this doesn’t mean Hillary was the peace candidate, far from it, but we didn’t have people like Trump supporters out right lying saying she was. If I had it my way I would have Trump, Hillary, Obama, Bush, Bill Clinton, GWB, GHWB, Jimmy Carter, and pretty much almost the entire US government on trial for war crimes against humanity and a sentence of life imprisonment without parole, since I don’t believe in the death penalty. I think Dr. Cornel West summed it up best when he said “That means that a child in Yemen, Somalia, and a child in Pakistan has the same value as a child in Newtown, Connecticut, Southside Chicago, Chinatown, barrio and an Indian reservation. A child is a precious child, no matter what. Somebody’s got to be accountable for that.”

Everyone being treated the same aka equality right? You would think in the good old US of A that would be the case, but equality under the law in US is bullshit. If I kill someone I go to jail, if someone in the US government kills someone they get medals. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, the near dead fossil and AG for the US, is rebooting the War on Drugs (that never ended since it’s declaration by Richard Nixon), telling prosecutors to seek the “most serious” charges and stricter sentences on the issue of drugs. So smoking a plant winds your ass in jail for life because private prisons demand cheap slave wage labor. Meanwhile wallstreet can steal from us and get tax payer bail out in order to keep the gravy train of capitalism going for another 10 years till the next crash.

“If voting made a difference, they wouldn’t let us do it” said Mark Twain, a man who was centuries ahead of his time. Until we call out the hypocrisy of both Republicans and Democrats we will never been free of this unless cycle of the War on so called “Terror” and War on so called “Drugs.” These wars are actually wars on the poor and non-white people. A lot of so called liberals hated Bush, but where ok with Obama putting a nice face on Bush’s policies. Now with Trump, the nice face has been replaced with an ugly orange turd, which is good for the left in the sense it wakes people up to just how fucked our government is. We need to move past this D vs R bullshit, end all these bullshit wars for profit, and move together as horizontally organized global workers party.

ATH 2-15-17 Matt Weiss Herbs work better than words

ATH 2-15-17 Matt Weiss herbs work better than words

I present Matt with his ATH theme song “Matt Weiss, the ebay guy”. The debate with Matt Weiss over whether herbs can work better than words in changing people’s hearts and minds was a clash of titans, and a jolly good time. I confess that I don’t worry about whether my song lyrics push Sam Seder’s buttons, because it’s more fun that way.

herbs work better than words

I went to my local democratic party meeting,
and I lectured them on why I think Hillary lost.
They called me a masogynist pig and told be to go away,
I told them I thought Hillary would be a shitty president anyway,
I gotta infiltrate the party, and get them all high,
yeah, maybe herbs work better than words.
yeah, maybe herbs work better than words.
we’ll find out.
They called me a stoner and a Bernie bro,
to their meetings I may never again go.
Yet long ago I executed an similar plan,
to change the hearts and minds of man
yes i did, yes i did,
I remember way back in the day
I successfully infiltrated the kkk
I got them all stoned every single day.
yeah infiltrate the KKK and get them all high,
maybe just maybe herbs work better than words.
maybe
A deep cover KKK operation, pretty scary, huh, man,
I had to persevere to make it a success in the end.
I managed to convert some of them
into libertarians.
oh yeah, maybe herbs work better than words.

I won’t take it personally

I won’t take it personally
I won’t take it personally,
thats what germo tweeted to me,
No I won’t take it personally, no, no, no
that you don’t value freedom and liberty,

I’m sorry if you don’t understand my song,
What I’m singing, what I’m saying, or just too long,
If you want to hear it all go to all the hypocrisy dot com.
And if you don’t I won’t take it personally,
Most of my fans are over there in Germany,

And I won’t take it personally,
your stoner libertarian impression,
I see your prejudice, I see it totally,
But by all means use your freedom of expression,

I won’t take it personally,
thats what my friend germo tweeted to me,
No I won’t take it personally, no, no,no, no,
when you put down my freedom and liberty.
