There's no doubt that Hillary is the candidate of Wall Street. Even more dangerous, though, is that she is the candidate of the military-industrial complex. The idea that she is bad on the corporate issues but good on national security has it wrong. Her so-called foreign policy "experience" has been to support every war demanded by the US deep security state run by the military and the CIA.

Hillary and Bill Clinton's close relations with Wall Street helped to stoke two financial bubbles (1999-2000 and 2005-8) and the Great Recession that followed Lehman's collapse. In the 1990s they pushed financial deregulation for their campaign backers that in turn let loose the worst demons of financial manipulation, toxic assets, financial fraud, and eventually collapse. In the process they won elections and got mighty rich.

Yet Hillary's connections with the military-industrial complex are also alarming. It is often believed that the Republicans are the neocons and the Democrats act as restraints on the warmongering. This is not correct. Both parties are divided between neocon hawks and cautious realists who don't want the US in unending war. Hillary is a staunch neocon whose record of favoring American war adventures explains much of our current security danger.

Just as the last Clinton presidency set the stage for financial collapse, it also set the stage for unending war. On October 31, 1998 President Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act that made it official US policy to support "regime change" in Iraq.

 

 

It should be the policy of the United States to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime.

 

 

Thus were laid the foundations for the Iraq War in 2003.

Of course, by 2003, Hillary was a Senator and a staunch supporter of the Iraq War, which has cost the US trillions of dollars, thousands of lives, and done more to create ISIS and Middle East instability than any other single decision of modern foreign policy. In defending her vote, Hillary parroted the phony propaganda of the CIA:

 

 

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members... "

 

 

After the Iraq Liberation Act came the 1999 Kosovo War, in which Bill Clinton called in NATO to bomb Belgrade, in the heart of Europe, and unleashing another decade of unrest in the Balkans. Hillary, traveling in Africa, called Bill: "I urged him to bomb," she told reporter Lucinda Frank.

Hillary's record as Secretary of State is among the most militaristic, and disastrous, of modern US history. Some experience. Hilary was a staunch defender of the military-industrial-intelligence complex at every turn, helping to spread the Iraq mayhem over a swath of violence that now stretches from Mali to Afghanistan. Two disasters loom largest: Libya and Syria.

Hillary has been much attacked for the deaths of US diplomats in Benghazi, but her tireless promotion of the overthrow Muammar Qaddafi by NATO bombing is the far graver disaster. Hillary strongly promoted NATO-led regime change in Libya, not only in violation of international law but counter to the most basic good judgment. After the NATO bombing, Libya descended into civil war while the paramilitaries and unsecured arms stashes in Libya quickly spread west across the African Sahel and east to Syria. The Libyan disaster has spawned war in Mali, fed weapons to Boko Haram in Nigeria, and fueled ISIS in Syria and Iraq. In the meantime, Hillary found it hilarious to declare of Qaddafi: "We came, we saw, he died."

Perhaps the crowning disaster of this long list of disasters has been Hillary's relentless promotion of CIA-led regime change in Syria. Once again Hillary bought into the CIA propaganda that regime change to remove Bashir al-Assad would be quick, costless, and surely successful. In August 2011, Hillary led the US into disaster with her declaration Assad must "get out of the way," backed by secret CIA operations.

Five years later, no place on the planet is more ravaged by unending war, and no place poses a great threat to US security. More than 10 million Syrians are displaced, and the refugees are drowning in the Mediterranean or undermining the political stability of Greece, Turkey, and the European Union. Into the chaos created by the secret CIA-Saudi operations to overthrow Assad, ISIS has filled the vacuum, and has used Syria as the base for worldwide terrorist attacks.

The list of her incompetence and warmongering goes on. Hillary's support at every turn for NATO expansion, including even into Ukraine and Georgia against all common sense, was a trip wire that violated the post-Cold War settlement in Europe in 1991 and that led to Russia's violent counter-reactions in both Georgia and Ukraine. As Senator in 2008, Hilary co-sponsored 2008-SR439, to include Ukraine and Georgia in NATO. As Secretary of State, she then presided over the restart of the Cold War with Russia.

It is hard to know the roots of this record of disaster. Is it chronically bad judgment? Is it her preternatural faith in the lying machine of the CIA? Is it a repeated attempt to show that as a Democrat she would be more hawkish than the Republicans? Is it to satisfy her hardline campaign financiers? Who knows? Maybe it's all of the above. But whatever the reasons, hers is a record of disaster. Perhaps more than any other person, Hillary can lay claim to having stoked the violence that stretches from West Africa to Central Asia and that threatens US security.

  I'm sorry.  Not comfortable with HIllary.  Not comfortable with any feminist racist in hiding white women.  They lied during the women suffrage and pretended they supported freeing slaves and voting rights for ALL women-that was just puff for them.  And since then...they haven't LOOK at us yet.   This is one the MAIN reasons why I don't like white whores...educated or not.  They still have this arrogance about them....that makes them STANK with distrust.  Sorry...they have thrown too many black women under the bus.  Sojourner Truth is one of em.  But!

I was shocked to see this article on the Huffington Post. HuffPo will get a lot of backlash from this because a lot of Democrats from all stripes click HuffPo and many of them are Establishment Democrats, the racist and rich establishment liberals who are really trickle down conservatives styling as Democrats and white feminists and women who are anxious to elect the first female president. 

I listen to a lot of left wing radio and read left wing sites and you rarely see such definitive articles that come straight out and say Hillary is dangerous and a straight up neocon, right wing establishment candidate who would be the absolute wrong person to elect. 

Frankly I have never seen an article on HuffPo call any democrat a neocon

"Even more dangerous, though, is that she is the candidate of the military-industrial complex."

"Hillary's record as Secretary of State is among the most militaristic, and disastrous, of modern US history."

"Hillary is a staunch neocon whose record of favoring American war adventures explains much of our current security danger."

WOW!

HuffPo just got a little more respect from me.

Gloria Steinem Apologizes For Remarks About Young Female Sanders Supporters

During Maher's Friday interview with Steinem, Maher pointed out Bernie Sanders'popularity with millennial women. Steinem responded that women tend to get more "radical" as they get older. "When you’re young, you’re thinking, 'Where are the boys?' The boys are with Bernie," Steinem told Maher.

Unsurprisingly, many people were not happy with Steinem's initial remarks. "To suggest, as Steinem seemed to do, that young women choose their candidate to attract men is profoundly sexist and condescending," Mashable's Juana Summers wrote on Saturday. "It trivializes the voting preferences of a powerful group of voters: young voters -- and particularly young women -- while at the same time ignoring gay women."

Steinem's statement on Facebook acknowledged that she "misspoke" on "Real Time With Bill Haher."

"What I had just said on the same show was the opposite," wrote Steinem. "Young women are active, mad as hell about what's happening to them, graduating in debt, but averaging a million dollars less over their lifetimes to pay it back. Whether they gravitate to Bernie or Hillary, young women are activist and feminist in greater numbers than ever before."

I see through Hillary as if she was just a piece of clear plastic. I, personally, wish she and the rest of the crew would STFU. They all promise this, that and the other until they get into office and find out the real deal. I'm sure Bill did things as president, she knew/knows nothing about besides all the pussymania, as far as running this joint was concerned. Choosing President takes too much time. Should take a couple weeks, listen to all the mouth flatulence, make your choice, week 3 = President.

If all these "leaders" we've had since this joint's inception were so great it wouldn't  have to be made "great" again. "Great" for whom?  It damn sure has never been a Piece of Cake for Africa's Kidnapped. "Great" must mean and mean only the Wrinklies with Heaps of Dough = Greatness. To get that dough, they have to scheme, connive, coddle, bullshit, and kill heaps of mothers' kids of all ages/races in existence on the planet. Then they can all parade around in designer clothes looking like well dressed corpses, telling everyone how "beautiful" they are as a race. The rest of us look at that shit and go .

If the little Penguin in a pants suit that can't stop laughing, smiling, nodding, flapping her arms, wins, looks like Ole Black Pres is going to have to be propped up. He's become a bit frail. Hangs around the Bushes so much, he and Momma are starting to look related.

Just keep on pushing, we're gonna get what we get; continue going through the shit we go through. Hopefully, none of us will have to send our children as fodder for some killing fest somewhere or another. We're doing a fine job dying just where we are.

When she goes to Flint, where's she going to bathe, what's she going to drink? What kinds of stories is she going to blather? I'm sure Flint's looking forward to the little arms flapping, the laugh cackling. Only the Galapagos/Antarctica will be missing.

Hillary is in Flint pandering for votes, she ain't gonna do a damn thing. Hell nothing happened so far, what the hell she gonna do but exploit the crime for votes. 

She pipes up about Flint because Sanders talks about it, so she travels to Flint to pull an okie doke on Blacks for votes. 

If Blacks are responsible making her the nominee it will another travesty for the Black community. Because any sort of Establishment ass kisser is always bad news for the Black community that will only fall further behind. 

The country need jobs, badly, so what the US do, pushes like hell another trade deal, TPP, that will send more jobs out of the  country. Who pays the consequences the most to further enrich billionaires and the corporate oligarchy, the Black community. 

Its so obvious she is bought and paid for, Hillary should be voted against by Black voters. 

 

 

  All Steinem seemed to be interested in just the money part.  Young females don't have anything to be angry about.  Okay maybe there's still a fight about the money but at least these women can plan their lives, can take care of themselves and most importantly they have power over their own bodies.  Aside from that, Steinem's agenda really doesn't have anything to do with women per se, it's those sorority feminist she's worried about.  I never really seen her prevelance in the women's movement-the burning of the bra era...she showed hugely  how she didn't care about black women.  See?  Back in the day, there was this secret in the black community that screamed about the many black women whose reproduction system were being damaged by quake doctors in the south.  No one said a word about during the women's right campaign.  They were using black women as ginny pigs like they did in Turkegee[sp] with the Syphillis experiments on black men.  So all this blah blah blah she's been doing is directly to benefit WHITE women-not all women in this country and certainly not black women.  I see her as the modern Ms. Ann.  But!

What do we care that white women don't care for black women? They're not supposed to care for us. The problem is Black white women don't care for black women and therein lies the problem. Stacy Dash, Raven Simone and a cazillion others. First and foremost, we have to care for OURSELVES.  We've been around these cave people for so damn long, we have NO CLUE HOW TO ACT. When it gets right down to the facts of things, all of LIFE IS NOTHING BUT AN ACT. Good, Bad, Ugly, Deviant = Acts.

We have the WHITE BLACKS, BLACK BLACKS, ALL KINDS OF MIXED BLACKS calling themselves THIS AND THAT. We're nothing but BALLS OF BLACKS SUFFERING MASS BLACK CONFUSION in a land dominated by CAUCASOIDS. It's called One Hell of a State of Flux to have ones' black asses caught up in every direction you look and every direction you turn.

Hillary was early on the issue in Flint before Bernie and immediately sent senior staff to read the riot act to the Governor. I feel Bernie is 100x more inspiring but calling himself a “socialist” is suicidal to older Muricans who hear “communism”. You can’t count on Muricans to actively back Bernie once elected. Same happened to Obama when the Confederate Nazis ganged up on him as soon as he was elected. Muricans go to sleep between elections - and generally. Whoever Hillary is, she’d be 100x better than the orange Nazi. Watching.

If we're going to keep going back to the "folks" who have already led the country, what's the purpose of having elections. Take turns: some Bush - 4 years, followed by some Clinton - 4 years until there's no more America' which might be soon, if they keep poisoning the seas (with everything under the sun), and the drinking water and gases keep spewing into the atmosphere.

All any of them do is kill and count money. What's happening to the Syrians could happen to anybody on the planet. The women and children didn't ask for that kind of terror. Those poor babies.
