The Democrats have decided to double-down on a political strategy that has divided the country, undermined confidence in public elections, alienated their progressive base and increased the chances of a violent clash with Russia. On Friday, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) filed a lawsuit charging the Russian government, the Trump campaign and Julian Assange of conspiring to sabotage the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. The 66-page legal complaint is a politically-motivated smokescreen intended to divert attention from the fact that that Dems have abandoned any pretense of representing the interests of working class people. The party leadership is now fully-committed to pursuing an elitist, anti-Russia, anti-Trump agenda that lacks any progressive component and which is entirely based on a ludicrous conspiracy theory for which there is not a shred of hard evidence. Simply put: The lawsuit is the last disgraceful nail in the coffin of a thoroughly-corrupted political organization that has lost all credibility and clearly outlived its shelf-life.The Democrats are now the party of Hillary Clinton, John Brennan and James Clapper. They represent the narrow interests of the Intelligence Agencies, the Pentagon, the foreign policy establishment and Wall Street. The reason why Barack Obama never prosecuted any of the bankers who precipitated the financial crisis and plunged the economy into the deepest slump since the Great Depression, is because they represent the party’s core constituency, the rapacious, obscenely-wealthy mandarins who grease the wheels on Capitol Hill, pull the political puppet-strings, and implement the belligerent policies that keep the country mired in one bloody conflict after the other. These are the behind-the-scenes powerbrokers who call the shots, rig the primaries, euthanize the party’s progressive wing and throw leftist candidates, like Bernie Sanders, under the bus.

The 66-page lawsuit is a monument to stupidity that must be read to be believed. The document rehashes virtually all of the spurious allegations that have been leveled at Trump and Moscow for the last 18 months without any supporting evidence. The perpetrators of this legal charade obviously think that the media’s relentless propaganda has convinced the American people that Russia did in fact “meddle” in the 2016 presidential elections and that Trump and Co, did “collude” with Russian agents. But that does not appear to be the case. Recent surveys indicate that one’s feelings about the ongoing investigation are largely shaped by one’s political orientation. In a January Quinnipiac survey, “Eighty-three percent of Republicans said the investigation was a witch hunt while 79 percent of Democrats thought it was legitimate”. These strong partisan divisions do not bode well for the Dems who seem to believe that the lawsuit will help to sway voters in the midterm elections. That is not just a very cynical calculation, it also strikes me as a very bad bet. Russiagate skeptics– whose numbers continue to grow– are more likely to see the lawsuit as just another temper tantrum by crybaby Democrats who still can’t accept the fact that their cherished NWO candidate lost the election to a rank amateur with no constituency and no experience. Bottom line: There’s no reason to think that the DNC’s pathetic lawsuit will succeed in luring uninformed voters into the Democrat’s camp. As always, the condition of the economy will be a much larger factor in determining how people vote. And, at present, most people think the economy is in “good shape”. Now take a look at this short excerpt from the DNC lawsuit:

“In the run-up to the 2016 election, Russia mounted a brazen attack on American democracy. The opening salvo was a cyber attack on the DNC, carried out on American soil… Russia then used this stolen information to advance its own interests: destabilizing the US political environment, denigrating the Democratic president nominee, and supporting the campaign of Donald J. Trump, whose policies would benefit the Kremlin.”

“In the Trump campaign, Russia found a willing and active partner in this effort… Russian agents trespassed onto the DNC’s computer network in the United States, as well as other email accounts, collected trade secrets and other private data, and then transmitted the data to Defendant WikiLeaks, whose founder, Assange, shared the defendants’ common goal of damaging the Democratic party in advance of the election.” (DNC Lawsuit)

This, of course, is the same sketchy fairytale the Dems have been reiterating for the last year and a half. So far, none of the main allegations have been verified, in fact, to date, there’s not even a reasonable basis for believing that a crime has been committed which means that this massive investigation that has tied up both Houses of Congress and a Special Counsel for more than 18 months doesn’t even meet minimal probable cause requirements. It’s beyond outrageous, it is a criminal misuse of government resources to pursue a political vendetta that serves the exclusive interests of the losing party. That is not the way democracy is supposed to work.

The Dems do not expect to find any incriminating evidence that will tie Trump to Moscow nor is that even the point of the lawsuit. The real objective is to increase public suspicion of Trump thus tainting the party’s leader as an election-rigging foreign collaborator. The Dems believe that their character assassination campaign– which begin prior to the 2016 with the compiling of the nefarious “Trump Dossier– remains their best path to victory in the midterms. The lawsuit is just part of that broader political calculation.

So what is the real motive behind this bogus lawsuit?

It’s obvious, isn’t it? The goal is to poison the minds of the American people against Trump, to persuade the masses that the President is not just a political opponent but a scurrilous traitor who poses a significant threat to national security. The DNC’s below-the-belt tactics have never been “politics as usual”. The Dems are engaged in a ruthless, scorched earth “dirty tricks” campaign designed to annihilate Donald Trump with one unverified slander after the other. This is agenda-driven political warfare at its very worst. The Dems aren’t interested in the truth. What they care about is winning elections, and their treatment of Trump shows that they will stop at nothing to achieve their goal. Whatever one thinks about Trump, (I voted for socialist candidate, Jerry White) the behavior if the Dems is nonetheless despicable.

The lawsuit helps to underscore an important point about the Dems, that is, that the party is no longer perceived to have any core convictions, ideology or beliefs. The corrupt and manipulative party leadership is comprised entirely of ingratiating sycophants who merely march in lockstep with the diktats of their “Big Money” constituents. Meanwhile, the grassroots base is kicked to the curb. The Washington Post recently “outed” the unprincipled Dems in a revealing article titled “A majority says the Democratic Party stands for nothing.” Here’s an excerpt:

“Whatever Trump’s struggles, the poll shows clear risks of Democrats’ opposition to Trump. Some 37 percent say the party currently stands for something, while 52 percent say it mainly stands against Trump. Even among Democrats, over one-quarter say their party primarily stands in opposition to Trump rather than for their own agenda.” (Washington Post)

What a terrible indictment of a party adrift. Like the survey suggests, the Dems stand for nothing, it’s the party of nothing, the Nothing Party. Oh, except for hating Trump, that is. The Dems are quite good at hating Trump, in fact, it has become the cornerstone upon which the entire political apparatus rests.

The Democratic base knows what it wants. The base wants jobs, health care, affordable college tuition, retirement savings and did I mention jobs? This is from NBC News:

“A December 2017 AP poll showed that health care and the economy matter far more to Americans, all things considered. Only 38 percent said “the Russia investigation” was very or extremely important. Compare that to the 85 percent who said the same about health care, 83 percent who gave that rating to the economy and 78 percent who felt that way about taxes.”

Here’s more from an article at the Washington Post:

“The fact that we have spent so much time talking about Russia has been a distraction from what should be the clear contrast between Democrats and the Trump agenda, which is on economics,” said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.).

The Democratic polling firms … found the Comey news and concerns related to Russia are major liabilities for Republicans. But the pollsters found that the health-care issue is a significantly bigger driver of voter behavior. “A key imperative for Democrats and progressive organizations is to bring even greater attention to the health care issue in the weeks and months to come,” the pollsters said in a memo about their numbers….Tamara Draut, vice president of policy and research for Demos, a liberal advocacy organization, said that focusing on pocketbook issues is the only way Democrats will win back working-class voters who defected from the party last year. ….We will win or lose the midterms based on the bread-and-butter kitchen table issues.

Democrats Should Focus More on Jobs, Less on Russia,” progressive writer Robert Borosage urged his compatriots in a column for The Nation back in March. “Democrats are railing about the Russians and the last election, while Trump is talking jobs, law and order, protecting our borders, and health care. We know which of these speak to the challenges Americans face.” (Washington Post)

So its’ clear what the Democratic base wants, just as it is clear that the corrupt, tone-deaf DNC establishment will brush them aside to pursue their own lunatic “Trump collusion” scam. It’s infuriating. The people at the top of this iniquitous pyramid, are completely impervious to the demands of their base. They just don’t give a damn. Which is why they’re probably headed for another big trainwreck in November.

As for the lawsuit, well, the flamboyant Roger Stone put it best in a recent post on his website titled “Why the DNC Lawsuit will Backfire”. Here’s a clip:

“This lawsuit is just the latest among many examples of the Democrats’ unflinching resort to abusing institutions of our government for their cheap partisan chicanery and nefarious scheming. It should come as no surprise to anyone…We now know that some of the highest officials of the Obama regime, as well as intelligence and law enforcement agencies, criminally abused the most sensitive possible national security powers to spy on a major party presidential candidate and his campaign, during and after the election, using a salacious “dossier” they had fabricated in collusion with foreign spooks, paid for by Hillary Clinton herself….

The DNC’s harassment legal action is…just politically-motivated litigation smear campaign by degenerate partisans willing and ready to, yet again, abuse the justice system for their sordid purpose.” (Stone Cold truth, Roger Stone)

Bullseye, Roger, that sums it up perfectly.

    Could the reason be that a banker(Robert Rubin) was his boss? Rubin, from Goldman Sachs, discovered Senator Obama, and bankrolled his presidential campaign fully expecting a loyal stooge, and he got one.

    Trump already is “tied to Moscow.” Just like Capone was ‘tied to murder(s).’ “Incriminating evidence” was not what put the Chicago mobster in ‘the joint’ though. It was his tax problem. What will prevent Trump from a second term? How would I know? It could be a plethora of charges. But it’s going to happen if he doesn’t just resign on his own. So Trump either resigns, is impeached, or faces a Republican challenger (Niki). Mueller will take the easiest route to ridding the Executive Dept. of DJT.
    Anybody who doesn’t expect Sater, Manafort, Cohen, et al. to flip is living in a dream world. The DNC suit is the least of the GOP’s problems.

    In other news….

    It seems that the prominent NorCal White Trashionalist, Kevin Crawford Kraft, has been arrested again :

    He managed to avoid arrest for 6 months, which is exceptional by his standards. In 2015, he was arrested 6 times in 6 months. Then he moved to another town for two years (a town that does not publish arrests online), where I am sure he was arrested a dozen times.

    His crimes include ‘assault with a deadly weapon’ and ‘having sex in public’, indicating extremely low future-orientation. An arrest per month in 2015, and now two in six months.

    If you had any doubt that White Trashionalists are complete degenerates, this is damning proof of this fact. If you question the application of the term ‘wigger’ to White Trashionalists, question that no more.

    Mike, I agree with your attack on the democrats and appreciate your holding your nose to defend Trump. But you shouldn’t be holding your nose. Trump and his supporters want a large part of what you want: a draw-back from empirical wars and resuscitation of the industrial full employment economy of the 50’s and 60’s.
    Where we part ways is on immigration and identity politics. You are wrong on those issues. You need to re-think the race/gender dogmas of the left and re-think immigration. You need to engage people who disagree with you on these issues and debate. You need to learn the good arguments being made today against immigration, against affirmative action, and against the equality and diversity agenda. You need to stop slandering people who disagree with you on these issues. Didn’t you ever learn to like debate?
    When you listen to people you agree with, that’s called indoctrination.
    When you listen to people you disagree with and debate them, that’s called education.
    Why are you unwilling to listen to arguments against the PC ideology, and why are you unwilling to debate those issues seriously?

    It’s infuriating.

    Great article, Mr. Whitney. There are a lot of reasons I voted for Trump, but the main one was his position on Russia, which was eminently logical, even though it was likely unpopular. Of course, this is what his opponents have now seized upon to use as a stick to beat him with, the risk of global thermonuclear war be damned. The utter stupidity and venality of it all almost makes me wish for the missiles to fly. Perhaps I’ll enjoy a split second of schadenfreude before the bright light wipes me off the face of the earth forever.

  12. Uplifting, delightful, subversive, reactionary. I loved this article.

    I hate to sound like a ‘partisan hater’ but the Dems have clearly become more devious, more unscrupulous then even the blood-sucking Republicans. This is no small feat.

    Just look at how the Democrats are still doing everything in their power to frustrate the enforcement of existing immigration laws (despite widespread voter sentiment to the contrary) while pretending that their legalistic tricks are born from a heartfelt compassion for ‘the refugees’.

    How thoroughly dishonest and utterly hypocritical.

    For decades, Washington’s ‘pro-democracy’ jihad has created millions of refugees by destroying whole nations, killing millions, and displacing millions more. Talk about ‘refugees’!

    Are these liberal crocodile tears some kind of a joke?–or just Fake News?

    While both Parties are equally to blame for the massive criminality involving Zio-Washington’s serial warfare, the special award for ‘Most hypocritical’ must surely go to the Dems. After all, it’s the Dems who pretend to care for ‘the many thousands of innocent’ refugees that come from south of our border, while they simultaneously create millions more refugees in the Mideast by annihilating small, distant countries that upset Israel. Fake news. Fake morality.

    With that in mind, the Lifetime Achievement Award for ‘Most Dishonest Reporting’, must go in all directions to our Zio-infested ‘mainstream’ media which has consistently cheered-0n, enabled, justified, and sanitized Zio-Washington’s ‘preemptive’ serial warfare. Thanx guys!

    And last but not least, the Dems must get an additional award for ‘Not Noticing’ the possibility that a resentful hoard of Third World immigrants still pouring into America has the real possibility upending our once-cohesive, European-derived civilization.

    Shouldn’t the risk be discussed?

    Shouldn’t the potential downside be acknowledged?

    Not as far as the Democrat leadership is concerned.

    For them, it’s all about hating and undermining the duly-elected President.

    Their toxic recklessness is one step away from treason.

    Meanwhile, a case can be made that these Democrat-orchestrated transformations (using illegal immigrants and their offspring as foot soldiers) have lowered our nation’s civic, political and cultural tone.

    No worries. The Dems seem quite happy to rain down potential ruin on American culture if it gets them more votes.

    Question: are the top Democratic operatives actually unaware–or merely unconcerned–that exploding ‘diversity’ may become America’s gift Trojan Horse?

    Which is it?

    In any case, the cooked-up Russia-gate conspiracy theory was born (invented) to drive a wedge between Moscow and Trump who–as a candidate–made ‘outrageous’ pledges about ending unnecessary Mideast wars and seeking peace with Moscow. Oh my!

    Like I said, ‘outrageous’.

    Fewer wars. Peace with Russia. The horror of it!

    So the Deep State rumor-mill got to work.

    Their objective: How to 1) subvert peace with Russia and 2) advance more pro-Zionist wars?

    And thus, Russia-gate was born: the grand conspiracy!

    Indeed, the unceasing accusations against Trump and Russia have forced Trump to ‘prove’ he’s not Putin’s puppet or face more Democrat anger. Trump therefore has been cornered into making threats against Russia (and its allies, Iran and Syria) while dutifully escalating the US-Russia cold war and trade embargo. In Washington’s twisted universe, these dangerous reversals have made Trump more ‘centrist’.

    Rising tensions with nuclear Russia man not be welcome news for average Americans, but the deep state thrives on it.

    These swamp-dwelling scalawags deserve a punch in the nose.

    David Ricardo is the economist I respect the most. He noted that the first generation of workers to master new skills and technology do pretty well.

    But then everybody learns the new skills. With hordes of skillled workers wages go right back down.

    The only way to keep housing costs down and wages at a living wage level is to keep the population down instead of tripling the population by importing hordes of blacks brown and tans just thrilled to live 20 in a 1,200 sq ft house and work 90 hours a week.

    That’s what all economists from marxists to the purest race to the bottom big fish eat the little fish capitalists want

    Don’t look now, but at least one CounterPuncher believes they’re getting ready to do it again:

    “Last year, the US House of Representatives voted unanimously in favor of the Nicaraguan Investment Conditionality Act of 2017 (NICA Act) which would cut that already-poor country off from loans offered by international financial institutions …

    “Citing the Alliance for Global Justice, Telesur reported at the time that ‘[t]he Nicaraguan government uses foreign assistance from the international financial institutions to support social spending on health and education which have become an ever larger proportion of the national budget.’ Telesur explained that the NICA Act therefore ‘poses a serious danger to the Central American nation’s economy and could result in a humanitarian crisis and waves of economic refugees that would flee toward the U.S. border, joining waves of migrants from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.’

    “Currently, Nicaragua is the only country victimized by the US-backed Central American Wars which is not also a source of immigrants to the US. This is in no small part due to the Sandinistas’ effective social programs.”

    I believe that Thrump will not run for a second term. I believe that he has come to the realization that even a Manhattan real estate developer is a choirboy compared to the vile scum who occupy the snakepit that is D.C. politics. Having to associate–even as an adversary–with the Clinton and Obama claque is so toxic that it isn’t worth the price of playing the game.

    I believe that Trump has a certain sense of dignity which is affronted by even having to deal with the likes of Hillary’s people–sort of like being accosted by a bleary-eyed, toothless drunk who, while trying to shake you down on the public sidewalk, spits on your shirtfront.

    I heard it said that most millionaires are Republicans and most billionaires are Democrats.
    Billionaires don’t become billionaires by just being hard working, intelligent, and providing a sought after service. Most billionaires have also relentlessly gamed the system, lobbied for taxpayer handouts, and abused employees, partners, and consumers.
    That said, a minority of billionares have also been part of the momentum behind the transformation of human poverty and misery into prosperity and advancement. Trump became, over time, one of these “Good” billionares.
    The Democratic Party wasn’t always so bad, but it was infiltrated and highjacked by the self-centered, then the dogmatic, and now the crazies. The Republican Party was going through the same process but a grass roots “Counter-Coup” in the last election saved it.

    That’s really it, isn’t it, for them to have control of the US treasury so they can spend it on themselves and their friends. That they’ll tear this country apart and create an environment of chaos in order to fulfill their selfish aims has become apparent. Things have gotten rather weird in this country whereby it’s seriously claimed that the US government is in thrall to Moscow, control being exerted through mind control rays or whatnot. It’s amazing to see so many full-grown adults actually repeat this as though it were true. The level of credulity in this country is staggering, especially when one notes that most of these people are not back-country hicks but are actually college graduates. May as well claim space aliens are running the show. This past election has been an eye-opener in many ways.

    The whole system is ludicrous as well as dangerous from “our” point of view, but seems to be functioning as planned, for the benefit of the .001% or so.

  38. The hostile takeover of the democratic party is complete. They are not only traitors to their erstwhile supporters, their history of backing war on behalf of the jihadi raghead element makes them traitors to civilization itself. Their threats to Russia as implied by literature such as “Russian Roulette” by journalists associated with the corrupt modern policy indicates treason to survival itself. All that are left is a historically regressive dangerous party and one that, post hostile takeover, has been emblematic of the most dangerous form of fascism in history, since the logical endpoint of their claim on absolute control and hatred of any country resisting this claim, including one with a full panoply of nuclear weapons and the ability to use them is indeed the end of everything.
    It means a lot less, but they have totally sold out on the former elements of party doctrine which favoured the working class and more general populace. Obamacare rather than socialized medicine reveals the extent of this sellout. They have indeed become more dangerous than the republicans, which still have an anti-war wing. This entire political, media, and spy system is a threat to our continued existence.

    The slow, relentless Democratic decline is a direct result of Clintonism. It was Bill Clinton who changed the Democrats into a party of the elites. It was his belief that people who actually care about the middle and working class would always support the Democrats since – in his own words – “where else can they go?” From that premise he concluded that the Democrats would remain a force. But many former supporters – like myself – have walked away the Democrats. Many more will do so in the coming years. They have concluded that it is best to let the Republicans create a catastrophic mess. And that is just what the Republicans are doing. From that mess will (hopefully) arise a new “New Deal.”

    Gets more ludicrous every day. The casino Jew Adelson is running Trump thru Bolton. This is the 4th Jewish Zionist from the Iraq war cabal that Bolton has brought back into government positions in less than a month. Make no mistake they are ginning up for a war.


    The Trump administration will tap Paula Dobriansky, a senior Bush State Department official, as the State Departments new number 3 – under secretary of state for political affairs.


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) –
    Rep. James Moran, a Virginia Democrat, brought down a torrent of opprobrium on his head this month when he said the United States would not be planning an invasion of Iraq “if it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community.”

    Bill Keller, in The New York Times on Sunday, said the theory deserved some attention because the idea that the war was about Israel was “more widely held than you may think” and because it has “sprouted from a seed of truth.”

    The alleged seed of truth is that several key second-tier officials in the Bush administration are Jewish neoconservatives who have advocated overthrowing Saddam Hussein to enhance the security of Israel.
    The group includes Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, Under Secretary of Defense Douglas Feith, Pentagon adviser Richard Perle, National Security Council Middle East official Elliot Abrams and Lewis Libby, chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, Under Secretaries of State John Bolton, Paula Dobriansky, Dov Zakheim, Eric Edelman, Robert Kagan and Eliot Cohen.
    Buchanan, writing in the American Conservative this week, said: “The War Party may have gotten its war. But it has also gotten something it did not bargain for.
    “Suddenly, the Israeli connection is on the table, and the War Party is not amused. Finding themselves in an unanticipated firefight, our neoconservative friends are … claiming the status of a persecuted minority group.”

    On June 18, 2004, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert Schnider agreed to release the custody files.[31] The decision generated much controversy, because it went against both parents’ direct request and reversed the decision to seal the papers in the best interest of the child. It was revealed that six years earlier, Jeri had accused Jack Ryan of asking her to perform sexual acts with him in public,[32] and in sex clubs in New York, New Orleans, and Paris.[30][33] Jeri described one as “a bizarre club with cages, whips, and other apparatus hanging from the ceiling.”[34] Jack denied these allegations. Although Jeri only made a brief statement,[35] and she refused to comment on the matter during the campaign, the document disclosure led Jack to withdraw his candidacy;[36][37] his main opponent, Barack Obama, then won the 2004 United States Senate election in Illinois.[38]

    The US is not a representative democracy. The type of government laid out in the Constitution is a republic with three branches of government, only one of which is representative of voters. The word “democracy” doesn’t appear in the text of the Constitution.

    The 17th Amendment, which overturned the original design by making senators subject to popular vote very likely failed ratification and was enacted anyway, just as the 14th Amendment was.

    Landmark bill restricting criticism of Israel sneaks through South Carolina Senate

    The South Carolina Senate has recently passed legislation that changes the definition of anti-Semitism to include criticism of Israel, and then applies this new definition to college campuses in a manner that experts say will impede free academic inquiry. The U.S. gives Israel over \$10 million per day, and Congress frequently approves increases to that amount; restricting discussion on this issue could serve to bolster and increase these expenditures.

    The legislation codifies a definition of anti-Semitism that significantly changes the meaning of the word, and it requires the state’s colleges to use this new definition when determining whether an action is “discriminatory” and therefore prohibited. This new definition declares statements that are critical of Israel—even when factual—“anti-Semitic” and therefore impermissible.

    GOHMERT: Mueller Unmasked

  76. While I didn’t vote for Trump (I didn’t vote at all) and have nearly lost all hope in the man, I have always argued with friends and family (who hate Trump) that the Russiagate story simply makes no sense.

    I think there are many reasons to be skeptical of the idea that Russian agents hacked the DNC. But even if it were true, it seems sensible to ask: what material impact could it possibly have had on the election?

    We are being told by the Democratic Party, and its media arms, that Russia got a bunch of emails from Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Podesta, gave them to Wikileaks, and this created such damage to Clinton’s reputation that enough voters, in critical swing states, who might have otherwise voted for her or stayed home, were swayed to come out and vote for Trump instead. In order for this to be the case, a critical mass of voters must have been quite informed about the contents of the hacked emails. Is it credible to think that they were? Perhaps I am wrong, but I don’t think so.

    I myself am a pretty avid reader of all sorts of alternative media sources, and have been for a long time. Guess what, I have never been to the Wikileaks website. Furthermore, I have friends who are also alternative media junkies and I have asked them. They have never gone to the site either. Now, I’m not saying that no one goes there, but are we to believe that the typical “normie” voter is more inclined to visit Wikileaks than a long-time reader of the Unz Review like myself? It simply isn’t credible.

    Now, someone might respond that it wasn’t necessary to visit Wikileaks to get some of that info, because other news sources reported on the emails. Fair enough. But remember, if the stories about the contents of the emails published by Wikileaks only reached voters who had already decided on Trump that would be insufficient to have had an impact on the election. In order for the emails to have had a significant impact on the election they would have had to: 1) succeed in flipping those previously inclined to vote for Clinton, and/or 2) succeed in helping previously undecided voters make their final decision in favor of Trump.

    Now, it seems to me that most of the reporting on the contents of the Clinton/Podesta emails was done by alternative news sites such as Unz, Breitbart, Infowars, GlobalResearch, etc. I doubt that those inclined to vote for Clinton would go visit these sites to find out dirt on her. Very few people are inclined to seek information that challenges their biases. So I would bet that very few, if any, voters leaning towards Clinton were flipped towards Trump because of the emails.

    This means that to have had an impact, the emails must have helped make the decision for undecided voters. Of course, this is possible. But again, I am highly skeptical. Maybe I am wrong, but I have a feeling that most voters who are still undecided as election time nears are rather low information, apolitical voters who lack strong convictions one way or the other. I don’t believe they are the type inclined to seek out the kind of information contained in the Clinton emails.

    Not only is it not obvious that the release of the Clinton emails helped Trump, it might also be the case that the whole hacking/Wikileaks story had the opposite effect. Yes, some, mainly alternative, outlets reported on the contents of the emails, which were damaging to Clinton’s reputation. However, alongside these reports there was the whole echo chamber of the mainstream media, with its huge megaphone, constantly shouting about the alleged Trump/Russia collusion to hack the DNC. Is it not possible that the whole story, rather than hurting Clinton, actually galvanized her base by painting Trump as a Manchurian candidate?

    Rather than helping Russia, I think the whole Russiagate story serves multiple agendas here in the US. 1) It helps the Democratic Party delegitimize Trump and therefore galvanize its base around an issue that is not a threat to its corporate donors. Without Russiagate, the Democrats might have to talk about real bread and butter issues relevant to their constituents. 2) It helps derail any détente with Russia that would threaten the income of the military industrial complex 3) It provides the permanent state and big media companies a justification to shut down alternative media sources by painting them as agents of a hostile foreign power. The list of those benefiting from the story about the hacking of the DNC is long. Reason tells me that Trump and Russia are not on that list.

    Neocon Jack Keane wants a permanent US presence in Syria

    ”Toward the end of his discourse this morning, Keane, came to the crux of his argument. He said that a war is coming in which Iran, Hizbullah and the Syrian government will fight Israel and that the US must be in a position in Syria to defend Israel when that happens. Thus it is revealed that the source of Keane’s (and now DJT’s) thinking is simply Israel’s obsession with the hostility of the Gentile World to include all those Muslims surrounding them. In other words, Keane’s neocon pitch is based on Zionist fear.”

    At one point so many San Francisco gay men were killing each other in sex sadism sessions that the City&County Health Department created pamphlets about how to keep alive during these sessions and actually had classes and seminars for them

    The biggest problem was being tied up in positions where they suffocated. So the Health Department devised ways to die each other up without suffocation.

    Bullshit!! There’s never been a truly Egalitarian Society. Stalinist Russia was not an Egalitarian Society nor was Maoist China or Castro’s Cuba. They were Totalitarian Dictatorships where one form of Concentrated Power replaced another which is a Common Trap & Phenomenon when Power Vacuums are created by the Natural Topplings of Old Regimes. The allure of Absolute Power is extremely difficult to overcome when an Existing Order is leveled.

    A True Egalitarian Society is niether Left nor Right. It transcends such Suffocating Limitations.

    It was much longer ago than that, and was said to be gerbils.. Riichard Gere as ‘gerbiller in chief’.

    This was very interesting because the rumour spread IRL, since it was a time when only us techies had ‘net access, in general, and IIRC, even before html and http://www..

    You will find articles saying that it isn’t true, but I had a male homosexual friend at the time (nice person. still a good friend if we are to meet again, corrupted by his mother, but in a stable relationship and AIDS -free, so relathvely conservative), and he was covinced that the ‘gerbilling’ phenomenon was real.

    Since he also saw and reported on Freddy Mercury ‘cruising’, when that was still supposed to be secret, my friend is very credible.

    The rumours about Gere make one of the many good lines in Scream, Rose McGowan in character makes a good comment about it.

    Thanks for providing your excellent example of argument by assertion, which is full of hot air and misguided certitude, but entirely void of facts.

    No modern steel-framed high rise building has ever collapsed from fire, even though several burning skyscrapers have been entirely consumed by flames, and have burnt like a torch for hours without collapsing.

    Mandarin Oriental Hotel fire

    For your edification, note please the fairly recent Mandarin Oriental Hotel Fire in central Beijing on 9 February 2009, when an illegal fireworks display torched the hotel, which burnt overnight, but did not collapse. There have been several other significant high rise fires in Madrid, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles for example, but none of these buildings has ever collapsed from the fire.

    The only examples of steel framed structures collapsing are those destroyed by controlled demolitions.

    Do you really think that a 130 ton airplane can knock down a 500,000 ton building?

    His crimes include ‘assault with a deadly weapon’ and ‘having sex in public’, indicating extremely low future-orientation. An arrest per month in 2015, and now two in six months.

    If you had any doubt that White Trashionalists are complete degenerates, this is damning proof of this fact. If you question the application of the term ‘wigger’ to White Trashionalists, question that no more.

    I just googled What was in the Clinton emails. Got numerous sites with no information about what was actually in the emails.

    Thank you very much, that makes my point even stronger. If it is near impossible to find info on the contents of the emails via a Google search, that further reduces the chances that the release of the emails impacted the election.

    Now, I had recalled reading some articles about the emails so I decided to search GlobalResearch to see what I could find. I found some articles on the topic:

    So there is some stuff on the web, but, like I said in my earlier post, I doubt many swing voters, or voters leaning towards Clinton, are checking out alternative sites like GlobalResearch to get this info.

    Arguing against myself now, there is another possibility: Twitter, Facebook, and other social media. As I was checking for these links, I stumbled across Wikileaks’ twitter page. Wikileaks does have 5.6 million followers. With that many followers, there can be a lot of retweets of Wikileaks info on the Clinton emails. However, again, in order to be effective in swinging the election, these (re)tweets had to go beyond speaking to the choir, and had to reach people in critical swing states, who were either undecided or leaning towards Clinton, and succeed in changing their minds.

    That said, I still think that the establishment media that is harping about Russiagate has not demonstrated, or even attempted to demonstrate, that the release of the emails had an actual impact on the election. They simply assert this, with no evidence or analysis to substantiate the assertion.

    There has NEVER been a total collapse of a modern steel framed building through fire – even when they were engulfed in fires of far higher temperatures and longer burning than the WTC fires (which has mostly gone out) and most of the Building 7 structure was stone cold.

    In fact all the massive structural supports of WTC7 (mostly nowhere near a fire) all simultaneously evaporated at the same moment.

    Fire induced structural damage has certain characteristics, none of which were present:

    – Slow deformation of the structure over hours.
    – Always asymmetrical deformation.
    – Concrete remains where it is and isn’t pulverized.
    – Most of the steel structure stays intact, whatever type of fire is involved.

    The WTC buildings didn’t have these fire damage characteristics, but they DID HAVE the characteristics of controlled demolition:

    – Total collapse with nothing left standing.
    – Sudden fast collapse
    – Collapse complete in seconds.
    – The building descends symmetrically (supports removed simultaneously).
    – The building descends a near free fall acceleration.
    – “Demolition squibs” (explosive ejections) are visible on the exterior of the building.
    – The building’s steel structure is totally dismembered.

    Apart from that, first responders heard explosions prior to the collapse and seismic evidence backs this up.

    There’s more than enough evidence to start arresting and questioning people for this crime of mass murder. It’s a political question, not a technical one.

    Since Tom Perez was elected head of the DNC, he and the establishment have been systematically purging progressives out of positions of power and influence. Recently The Intercept has revealed that the DCCC has been doing the same thing–attacking or attempting to keep progressives off the ballot. Not only that, but progressive candidate such as the Justice Democrats have reported state party shenanigans against them. In addition, establishment democrats have back stabbed progressives such as the black female mayor of Baltimore vetoing a raise of the min. wage. Or when establishment democrats in CA back stabbed nurses union, etc. stopping single payer.

    Progressives will see up close and personal in the primaries how the establishment cheats and defrauds other democrats during the primaries–especially progressives.

    So the question is whether Bernie Sanders can sheep dog these newly awoken activists and young people back into the party to vote for those who cheated them. Or will many progressives simply walk away from the democrats come election day.

    I doubt it. The progressive sheep will gladly march themselves to the slaughterhouse, as long as it is disguised with a trendy exterior. Most millenial and black progressives are quite stupid and braindead.

    I know older progressives who are intelligent though, and may walk away. But they are a minority and their loss will be overturned by the blue collar whites who will also be fooled.

    It’s true that egalitarianism is cited by leftists as one of their principles. It’s a perversion of the term, I know, just as “liberalism” is. The left adopted liberalism as their identifier though their creed is totally illiberal if you go by the original meaning. Classic liberalism is devoted to liberty. “Liberty” isn’t a word used much in politics, having been replaced by “freedom”.

    Modern “liberals” aren’t liberal at all, unless you count their liberal use of force to rob through taxation so that they can spend liberally on their oppressive programs. They are actually totalitarian collectivists, neither liberal nor egalitarian, though they claim both terms.

    I’m in a bit of an awkward position. I think Trump is an idiot (possibly a dangerous one due to his immaturity), but I’ll also never accept a democrat as my president again after the way they have acted. Future dem presidents will only ever be the presidents of the democrats to me. And if the opportunity presents, I’ll support any impeachment proceedings against them regardless of evidence or cause. Any group of people who act like this cannot ever be allowed to gain or retain power.


  113. Trump has lost a huge amount of support do to his love of Israel and bombings of Syria. His former supporters will stay away from the polls for that reason. Plus he has gone soft on illegal aliens and the 2nd Amendment.

    The Central Elections Committee has ordered three Knesset members with dual citizenship to annul their foreign passports by next Tuesday’s swearing-in ceremony, or at least begin steps to cancel them.
    The three lawmakers are Yohanan Plesner of Kadima (who has Danish citizenship), Nitzan Horowitz of Meretz (a Polish citizen) and Yisrael Beiteinu’s Anastasia Michaeli, who holds a Russian passport. The Basic Law on the Knesset states that “a member of Knesset holding an additional citizenship that is not Israeli … will not take the oath of loyalty until he has done everything he can to relinquish it.” –
    Nobody can have loyalty to TWO Nations at the same time. So nobody with “dual citizenship” should be allowed to hold any post in our government, JUST LIKE ISRAEL DOES..

If 79% of Dems and even about 20% Reps can convince themselves there is anything to the Russia collusion and interference then the USA is in very bad shape.
