Fake summit, fake peace

No despite what you hear from MSM, North Korea is not giving up their nukes. Not that they should, but this is something Trump is touting as “North Korea capitulating to the United States by giving up their nuclear weapons.” This is anything but true. North Korea simply stated they are “striving towards denuclearization.” This is very weasel wording that could mean anything. North Korea would take 100 years to denuclearize. Nor can America be trusted to “end war drills with South Korea and Japan.”

The crimpling sanctions on North Korea by the United States will remain, along with US military forces in South Korea. The truth is much darker than the media is letting on. Fascist Trump is clearly preparing for a war with both North Korea and Iran? Why would Trump go out of his way to pretend to be making peace with DPRK? If you look at the strategy of John Bolton, he stated he supported negotiating with DPRK because “it would show negotiating with North Korea doesn’t work” and that would only leave us with one option, war.

This is what I call “playing the long game.” Trump does not want peace, no matter what anyone tells you. This is exactly why Kim will never give up his nuclear weapons. At least he will have some minor chance to stand up to the United States when, not if, war begins. The only real question is how it will start.

A war is on between two groups of capitalist nations. On the one side of American and her satellite nations and on the other side of the axis of resistance, Syria, Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah. Any person who does not side with the defenders aganist aggression are imperialists, there is no middle ground here. You are either for the political sovereignty of Syria, Russia, and Iran or not.

The chickens are falling coming home to roast for Russiagaters and the Democratic establishment. Russiagate blew up in their face on Sunday when Trump attacked Putin and the Russian Federation by name. The fake Russiagate scandal generated by the mainstream media in relation to Trump has made him flip from wanting detente with Russia to now pushing for the possibility of a World War with Russia. I hate to be defending Trump here, but the Mueller investigation is a witch hunt for the most part on him and he has been the toughest president ever when it comes to Russia, from sanctions, to censoring Russian media in the US, to expelling Russian diplomats. Relations now with Russia are even worse than when they were during the Cold War. Only time I can remember them being worse than this was during the Russian Civil War when Wilson sent US troops to occupy Russia, engaging in open hostility with Russia.

Trump, who has finished assembling his war cabinet with neoconservatives like Mike Pompeo, Gina Haspel, and John Bolton, along with a war criminal like James Mattis, is prepared for a war, a massive war. A war that could lead to the death of all live on earth. A world war. To even contemplate that a few years ago would be insane, but here we are. The New York Times has a very good map on the current situation of troop levels in Syria. Check it out here – https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/04/11/world/middleeast/syria-military-us-russia-iran.html

Russia and Iran has stated that any attack on Syria will lead to retaliation. Iran states it will retaliate aganist Israel for the April, 8 strike. We are beginning to see military mobilization and flight cancelations in and around the area of Syria. The Free Syrian Army says it will lead a counter offensive when any such attack accrues.

Yet a conflict in Syria could open up conflicts elsewhere, such as Ukraine, Iraq, NATO/EU Russian/Belarus border, etc. Such a conflict would lead to tens of thousands, if not millions in a matter of a few days. The possibility of nuclear weapon usage would of course lead to the death of almost all human life on the planet. With Putin’s new nuclear weapons that can bypass American’s EU Thaad missile defense system, the odds of American not being take out in a first strike by Russia are almost a 100%. I leave you with this quote:

“Why, of course, the people don’t want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship… Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.” – Hermann Goering, 1946

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.

Twitter: https://twitter.com/carterforva?lang=en

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.

Donald Trump, George W. Bush’s third term

By Joseph Ballin 8/9/2017 12:46 AM EST

One thing that really drives me up a wall is when people say “Trump makes me wish we had Bush as president again.” When Gore Vidal said we are the United States of Amnesia, he wasn’t fucking joke. Bush was the second worst president (second only to the current asshole) in US history and nearly destroyed the country and the world. Growing up under Bush for me was like someone growing up under Hitler or Franco, it’s a dark time in your history to remember. I simply refer to it as “The Dark Times”. In fact Trump has brought back a lot of memories that I tried to suppress from the Bush administration.

Not to mention the fact it was Bush’s stupidity that helped create Trump in the first place. If Bush was never president, we never get McCain picking Sarah Palin, and if we never got her, we never got Trump. For all the MAGA chuds out there who said Trump would be different from from Bush, where are they now? In fact Trump has become Bush’s third term. Here’s some stuff Bush and Trump both did as president:

1. Bush killed the nuclear deal Bill Clinton established with North Korea, Trump just killed the nuclear deal with Iran that was established by Obama.
2. Both bombed an Arab Baathist country in the middle east for no reason at all.
3. Both came in trying to be friendly with Putin, only to have relations deteriorate dramatically over their presidency.
4. Both expanded NATO.
5. Both ran on an anti-interventionist foreign policy during their respective elections, only to turn into full blown neocon war mongers the second they get into the white house.

Other than that, every thing else is standard stuff presidents do in terms of foreign policy, which is basically war mongering and war crimes, along with breaking international and US law. One key difference between Bush and Trump foreign policy, Bush talked alot about freedom and democracy, Trump has the foreign policy of the Golden Horde, rape and pillage.

1. Both reenacted the Mexico City policy that was previously resided by president Clinton and Obama.
2. The civil rights department of the US government has been largely rendered defunct under both GWB and Trump.
3. The Bush administration abandons ratification Kyoto Protocol, while the Trump administration leaves Paris Deal.

On LGBT issues, I would say Trump is actually WORSE for LGBT Americans than Bush. Trump may not have ran an openly anti-LGBT campaign, but if you had looked at the 2016 GOP platform, it looked like something out of Nazi Germany on LGBT rights. The following things Trump has done on LGBT rights over the last 200 days: removed any referenced to LGBT people or civil rights on white house website, rescind Obama’s guidelines on transgender students bathroom access, rescinded Obama’s federal contractors executive order covering sexual orientation and gender identity, appointed a bunch of batshit insane Christian fucktards to various government departments and courts, gender identity not covered in US census, argued sexual orientation isn’t covered under civil rights laws, banned transgender service members from the US military, and a bunch of other awful shit.

Trump hasn’t been able (thank the gods) to get a lot of bills signed into place, outside of the recent sanctions bill he signed on Iran, North Korea, and Russia. No deathcare bill passed, not tax cuts passed, no federal right to work bullshit, etc. Outside of alot of deregulation and taking healthcare away from women, he’s been a failure for the most part in terms of the oligarchic Christian fascist movement in the US. Let’s hope the next 100 days have Trump signing stupid shit like the Fred Thompson courthouse and not stuff like privatizing social security.

The Sam Seder Tim Black debate, or the Sam talks over Tim while Michael Brooks makes snarky commentary.

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/iyXhdzgGOSc/maxresdefault.jpg

By Joseph Ballin 6/29/2017 5:37 PM EST

Reader’s note: I am a fan of both Sam Seder’s The Majority Report and The Tim Black Show. I do not hold any hostilities towards either person debating in this piece and am writing this to illustrate how we on the left can find better solutions to our problems. That being said I’m biased toward Tim in this debate.

What’s the difference between a liberal and a progressive? Personally I don’t care or like these labels. Hillary described herself as a “progressive who can get stuff done.” So I couldn’t care less about those labels, but Tim goes into what I think he meant is between neoliberal corporate shills and people who want change in this country. Yes Sam is correct that the Majority Report does talk about all of the issues that Tim Black listed. So Sam goes to Tim’s youtube page and criticizes him for not covering healthcare enough. However, Sam has not watched Tim’s show and doesn’t know that he’s covered healthcare numerous times on his show. And now Sam goes into the Seth Rich / Kimdotcom territory.

The one thing me and Jimmy Dore have both been very clear on, we want evidence. We want evidence of Russiagate, evidence Assad gassed his own people, evidence for or against the Seth Rich cover up, etc. That’s reality based thinking. That’s why I’m an agnostic atheist, because I can’t prove there isn’t a god/gods, but there is no evidence that they do exist so there is no reason for me to believe in them. In fact, nothing in the universe can be proven. A fact is a statement that is taken to be true based off of evidence. It is something we collectively as a society agree what is real and fake. A theory is a plausible or scientifically acceptable general principle or body of principles offered to explain phenomena.

Ok now that we got that out of the way let’s deconstruct all this shit. There is no verifiable evidence Russia hacked, interfered, or colluded with Donald Trump or his campaign. In fact, as president, US relations with Russia under Trump are at a record low. Trump has repeatedly attacked the government of Bashar Al-Assad and Iranian militias several times, Russia’s allies. Trump signed a treaty expanding NATO to Montenegro, something Russia opposes. He signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017, which authorized $100 million dollars for the “Countering Russian Influence Fund”, to counter “Russian influence and aggression” and to “support civil society organizations in Europe and Eurasia.” It also included a measure imposing new restrictions and oversight on Russian diplomats in the United State. The Act also includes provisions that no appropriated funds may be used to support the Russian annexation of Crimea and assist Crimea, if such assistance includes the participation of Russian Government officials, or other Russian owned or controlled financial entities. It also states that no funds may be used to support “the Russian occupation of the Georgian territories of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia” or to assist the central governments of other countries that have recognized the two territories’ independence. On top of all that, US has imposes more sanctions on Russia during Trump’ presidency. If Trump’s a Russian puppet, he’s doing a really shitty at it.

Again this is not to say there isn’t business ties Trump has to Russia, like with Deutsche bank and Trump hotels because he’s a billionaire, but he also has business ties to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Turkey, Philippines, Azerbaijan, mafia, etc., but the mainstream media never mentions this. Why does mainstream media never bring up the fact General Flynn was a paid agent of the Turkish government? Why does the mainstream media not bring up the fact Trump appointed all these Goldman Sachs people because of his ties to Israel? Or China provisionally granting Trump 38 trademarks after getting elected? Or the Clinton’s business dealings in Russia? So there is enormous hypocrisy on this issue. Focus on Russia and nothing else. Why you may ask? Because starting a new cold war with Russia ensures defense contractors can make giant profit because now we have a great power enemy again. Also we can’t start a cold war with China because our economies are to tied together. It has less to do with Trump himself and more to do with more spending on the military and strengthening the police state. That’s why you don’t hear anything about getting rid of voting machines or having open, fair, and free elections.

As for the Syria gassing of 2017, the entire thing was brought up so briefly and forgotten about so quick by mainstream media and the Trump administration it really makes you wonder what really did happen in Syria. Why has there been no independent UN investigation into the gassing? There is no evidence Assad ordered the gassing of any civilians. As for the Seth Rich story, I stated on day one when I first heard about the Seth Rich murder that I found it very fishy. I have no idea is Seth Rich was the Wikileaks leaker or who killed him, but I do know a couple things. I do know Assange has hinted, but not confirmed, to Seth Rich being the leaker. Wikileaks, outside of the Garani Massacre Video which they said they would publish, but never did, has been 100% on point. So now that we got all that out of the way, back to the debate.

So Sam now brings up whether or not it’s a good thing to promote the Russia fear mongering story to split off three Republican votes in the Senate for healthcare. First of all I won’t advocate a new cold war with Russia over healthcare. Second of all why does Sam think Russia influences how Republican senators vote on healthcare. We’ve already seen the Senate healthcare bill be delayed because of how awful it is. People aren’t thinking about Russia when they think of healthcare, they are thinking of NOT DYING! Plus I would wager all that corporate cash the Republicans senators take is more of an influence than the so called Russia scandal over Trump’s head. The only thing that will force Republicans to change their votes on healthcare is though mass movements.

Now Black brings up the rigged 2016 Democratic primary and the DNC fraud lawsuit. Tim brings up exit polling being used by the US to determine whether an election is legit or bs in foreign countries. I would like to point out that irregularities in exit polling in Ukraine were cited by the US and EU for the fascist coup in Ukraine. And I would also like to point out Sam Seder has had on Greg Palast on Ring of Fire, someone who says the 2016 Democratic primary was rigged. But ok Sam I guess the primary wasn’t “rigged.”

Continuing on Tim brings why Democrats blaming progressives for the lose of Hillary Clinton. So Tim brings up Susan Sarandon and her revolution comment about Trump, stating we are seeing a revolution already taking place under Trump. Ok so I agree and disagree with Tim here. A revolution against Donald Trump hasn’t sustained itself, yet. It needs to be sustained though mass rallies every week and civil disobedience in the streets. And I believe a revolution under Trump can happen if he topples Assad and invades Iran

Michael continues to break into this heated debate to make a funny comment. Now we get back to Seth Rich. So Sam again thinks that it’s crazy to think that politicians won’t murder people to cover up corruption. I agree Tim Black that we need to ask questions. Again I’m an agnostic on Seth Rich, I don’t know who killed Seth Rich.

One of the most damming quotes from the Sam Seder vs Tim Black debate comes right around here. “She (Nancy Pelosi) is a great leader. I would not support a challenge to her” – Sam Seder. Ok so let’s give Sam the benefit of the doubt and say Pelosi wasn’t guilty for the thousands of losses of Democrats in elections over the past decade or so. So why is it Sam doesn’t bring up the fact Pelosi didn’t do shit to bring about real progressive change during her time as speaker from 2007 to 2011? She opposes single payer, she didn’t prosecute GWB, and she didn’t bring up the Employee Free Choice Act.

And finally Sam says Steny Hoyer would be worse than Pelosi. So Sam why not get rid of Hoyer? And if he’s replaced with another corporate Dem get rid of them until we get someone who will at least listen to progressives. That’s what the Republicans did with Eric Cantor and their party is stronger than ever. Tim brings up the fact Sam voted for Hillary Clinton in New York, a blue non-swing state, but he doesn’t blame Hillary for not appointing Bernie Sanders as her VP pick, which everyone agrees would have won her the election. You know why she didn’t do it? Because of spite and corporate greed. She would rather lose to a Republican than give an inch to progressives, and that’s why we have Trump.

Dennis Rodman is trying to save the planet

 

https://static2.stuff.co.nz/1362075764/237/8368237.jpg

By Joseph Ballin 6/16/2017 5:00 PM EST

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 Myth of “Good War”

http://media.philly.com/images/Trump-globe.jpg

By Joseph Ballin 5/23/2017 5:14 AM EST

I don’t think it’s wrong to say America is the most evil nation in world history. When Donald Trump described himself as a “nationalist and a globalist” I didn’t think it was a contradiction in terms. America has also been on a nationalist bent for global domination of the planet. Since President McKinley, America has seen a revision of our grand global imperialist ambitions. Prior to McKinley, dating back to First Anglo-Powhatan War, the Anglo settlers of what would be the USA embarked on a genocidal campaign of extermination of the natives of this land. In early 17th century, Captain John Smith, leader of Jamestown, envisioned that the Native Americans of Virginia would one day be doing the work for English colonialists. Nothing about democracy or freedom were invoked in this American Holocaust.

McKinley began the great American revisionism. Instead of conquering brown people for land, we would now conquer brown people to “civilize” them. The great myth of spreading American “exceptionalism” began with the Spanish American War. If we look at every war ever fought by the United States, the only wars that the United States fought in a defense manner from an attack on the United States was World War II and the initial conflict with al-Qaeda, which was never a declared war. However, to say that Japan, Italy, Germany, al-Qaeda didn’t have legitimate reasons for coming into conflict with the United States is absurd. In response of Japanese invasion of Vichy French Indochina, FDR enacted an oil embargo on the Japanese Empire, which lead directly to the attack on Pearl Harbor.

On September 11, 1941, FDR ordered the United States Navy to shoot on sight if any ship or convoy is threatened in the Atlantic Ocean. This was response to the “Greer incident” on September 4, 1941, off the coast of Iceland, when German submarine U-652 fired, but did not make contact, with USS Greer after USS Greer received a signal from a British bomber that a German submarine was in the vicinity. Greer made sonar contact, and pursued the U-652 at close range. The aircraft dropped four depth charges, and soon after the U-boat fired a torpedo at the US warship, perhaps believing USS Greer had launched the attack.

As for Italy, on June 15, 1941, FDR freezed all US assets towards Italy and other Axis nations. So Germany, Italy, and Japan all had legitimate reasons for declaring war on the United States. What about al-Qaeda you would ask? Well let’s take a look shall we. The December 6, 1993 newspaper of The Independent described Osama Bin Laden as an “anti-Soviet warrior” who’s “recruited mujahedin now uses them for large-scale building projects in Sudan.” Osama was once America’s ally against the “evil” Soviets in Afghanistan, one that the CIA funded greatly as shown in “Charlie Wilson’s War”.

Later, after the Soviet withdraw from Afghanistan, in 1990 Saddam invaded Kuwait, after getting signals from Washington that he had the green light to do so. The Saudis began pushing for an intervention against Saddam’s annexation of Kuwait. Osama stated that his mujaheddin fighters could expel the Iraqis from Kuwait. Saudis rejected his offer for American soldiers to come into Saudi Arabia, set up military bases, and expel Iraqi forces from Kuwait. Osama began strongly criticizing the US occupation of the holy lands of Islam by foreign crusader troops. Another thing Osama would cite in his reasons for the September 11 attacks was America’s support for Israel over the Palestinians. Osama was not stupid, he would read people like Noam Chomsky and had a masterful plan to bring down the superpowers of the Soviet Union and USA by bogging them down in endless occupations overseas. His plan is still being carried out to this day.

This is not to justify the actions of the Axis powers or al-Qaeda. I am simply stating that the myth that America is this innocent actor in world events and the only reason they hate us is because of our “freedom” is total bullshit. Every action has an equal reaction. The golden rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, is something we should abide by when it comes to foreign policy. Imagine if a terrorist Quebec liberation group feed Canada to the USA, began performing terrorist attacks against Canada, and Canada responded by drone bombing American cities, killing thousands of civilians in the process. How would Americans respond when the chickens come home to roost? Because that horror we all experienced on 9/11, the middle east has known almost every day ever since.

The Crimes of Donald Trump

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C_e74s_XkAAaigx.jpg:large

By Joseph Ballin

5/13/2017 7:10 PM EST

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.

Wikieaks: Hillary Clinton Thinks Walmart is Essential for Democracy

 

In the Wikileaks latest batch of Releases, Hillary Clinton in Paid Speech Part 1, her staffers annotated problematic paid speeches. In November 4, 2013, she gave one of her Paid Speeches, to London Drugs.  Here are some uber idiotic things even Donald Trump wouldn’t say

Walmart Essential for Democracy
Indians need Walmart To learn how to Store Grain
