Apparently women resolve PR disasters

The headline reads: Can Mary Mack save Wells Fargo? The banking fraudsters have promoted a woman to handle damage control after getting cought manipulating bank accounts without their customers consent. The next line, Mary Mack "has arguably one of the hardest jobs in finance", reminded me of the press surrounding the appointment of Mary Barra to CEO of General Motors, when it faced similarly terminal public anger. It's no kind of victory for feminism when the glass ceiling is being bypassed for the sexist purpose of installing a female to placate outrage. Who can celebrate a woman finally attaining a pennultimate job level when no man wants it? It was the same for Janet Yellen at the Fed, for Christine LaGarde at the IMF, and doesn't it explain the Election 2016 plans to rescue Capitalism? Ol' Hillary for the U.S. of A.

When Lucid Fails, try Lurid..

First allow me to posit a few noticeable facts. Donald Trump is invested in the National Enquirer supermarket gossip rag. To the point they'll publish any mouth-farts he wants. And he's got some kind of teenage or toddler Persecution Complex. The daily/weekly/whenever they, unlike a real newspaper, decide to publish... is prominently displayed at (just an estimate) every grocery checkout counter in America. Even if you try you can't ignore their bloviation.   It's like those damned posters in the novel 1984 with a picture of Big Brother and the eyes having the effect of always looking at you, and the infamous quote Big Brother Is Watching You.   And yes, I am capable of visualization when I read. It's a level of literacy that some people don't feel the need to exercise. You know, the ones who trust their leaders to think for them. So you get a blast of Trumpista Propaganda every time you buy groceries. Which has some deep Freudian undertones. So, what are We the Sheeple being "fed" at the store this un-news cycle? Trump has gotten REVENGE against Hillary. Let yourself enumerate a few facts: He and Hillary aren't the only choices on the ballot. Nobody has done anything to either of them. EVER. Revenge is something one exacts when (s)he has been wronged. Bears repetition, Nobody has done anything to either of them. EVER. So what's this "revenge" shit? Or in the Stoner vernacular "Like, what?" Is he having a psychotic break again? Like when he threatened to sue the author and publishers of Bloom County, a political and social satire cartoon. Because they called him names. Grow up, Chump. People say all kinds of nasty shit to each other and especially in an election. And about each other. Since he has de facto editorial privilege on the Enquirer staff, I'm going to ass u and me that he wrote at least the first draft. So, does he feel persecuted, unloved, like people are picking on him by refusing to comply with his orders to Love Him? Calling him names like Psychotic Rich Bitch Crybaby? Is he telling the truth when he says, still, the Central Park Five should be lynched? Because, you know, violently racist bullshit like that can cause some people to call you nasty names. Like Chickenshit Wannabee Klansman who can't do something like that himself so he demands his Brainwashed Disciples to do it for him. Stuff like that. Go back to your unearned privilege of living on the (taxpayer subsidized) proceeds of other people being forced to surrender their property so you and other Real Estate Thieves can sell it. You did nothing of your own effort to create the real estate, you never put your hand to hammer or shovel, never had blisters or callouses. Except on that tiny little portion of your brain responsible for Conscience. You and your scum sucking ilk have feasted, literally, on the blood of millions, nay, billions of people and especially children. Your lifestyle was built on Murder, as Death was the alternative

At Colorado Springs UCCS rally protest, Trump critics make his fans look smart.

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO- While protesting Trump's appearance at UCCS, I found myself on the worng side of the shouting match. Trump supporters were yelling "JAIL HILLARY" and their protesters were drowning them out with chants of "USA USA!" WTF. And our side was shouting "America is Already Great" but that's what you'd expect from Colorado Springs white people.

The Hillary Clinton War Machine banner seen by everyone at 2016 DNC but you.

PHILADELPHIA, PA- The second day of protest of the 2016 DNC was expected to dwarf Sunday's impressive turnout, so we hit the Monday rally determined to repeat our photo-op coup of the day before. This time our banner read “HILLARY CLINTON IS THE CANDIDATE OF THE WAR MACHINE” which we knew would ruffle more feathers. We wore costumes, me as American Cowboy Capitalist, my teammate as war victim, in a black burqa, Muslims being both targets and scapegoats of the US War on Islam. Shutters clicked wherever we went, whether our banner was unfurled or not. Professional photographers recorded our names and fellow activists gave us thumbs up and maneuvered to record us on their phones. Some posed beside us, asking companions or strangers to take their selfies. We gave interviews to Time Magazine, the New Yorker, several newspapers, and multiple foreign news outlets. We spoke about the undemocratic character of our party conventions and about Hillary being the establishment warmonger. Having drenched our clothes in Philly's 95 degree weather, we consoled ourselves that we had absolutely nailed the message. We’d learned the day before that getting a visual out before a march began was the most fruitful in reaching the media audience. Unless you're storming the Bastille, protest visuals are not for drawing people to the street. Visual messaging is for the benefit of local television viewers first, who can rush to join in, and news readers second, to give substance to the coverage. At first we found scant footage of our banner in the Sunday march, but our early morning bannering, meant be a beacon toward which people could gather, garnered a headline photo by the AP. That picture ran on AP articles across the globe, and dominatd images of "DNC protests" before the convention had even begun. We knew that press coverage would be best before the convention got started, when protests wouldn’t compete with the choreographed performances inside. But we were confident that the first day’s march, as the biggest and most anticipated, would float our antiwar message to the top. Our war-machine slogan appealed to Bernie supporters, to the Greens, and to the antiwar groups. We went out early and wherever we went we drew thumbs up, applause, fingers pointed our way, cellphones and cameras. Organizers of a Bernie-delegates press conference asked us to be their backdrop. So imagine our surprise when the day’s news images did not include our banner! Instead media photo editors chose images of Bernie Sanders supporters despondent about his betrayal. In reality, most protesters on Monday were not apprised of Bernie's formal capitulation. Protesters were upbeat and enthousiastic. The thousands of Berners who marched that day were exuberant about the prospects of their delegates prevailing in the convention. Press photogs must have known something about what their editors wanted, or the heat and exhaustion produced the compositions they needed. News stories of Monday's start of the DNC ran with images of solitary protesters, looking isolated and resigned. For our part, we're certain

Who wrote Melania Trump’s speech?

Number one, Melania Trump did not plagiarize Michelle Obama, her speechwriter did. And that hack copied from the First Lady's. So one speechwriter plagiarized from another. More probably they cribbed from the same citizenship pledge essay. I'm surprised pundits pretend to differentiate platitudes from longitudes. Has anybody checked to see if Michelle and Melania don’t have the same speechwriter? Or it's a Dr. Carvell, Mr. Matalin dueling personality, we've seen that before. It wouldn’t take a bipolar disorder to support today’s conjoined parties. TWO, in 2016 the Bushes are rooting for the Clintons, even Karl Rove is pitching for the rival team. If bogeyman Trump wins anything, it will be the best bad actor Oscar, up against every black hat that's ever troubled WWWF fans. That no one of stature will take the podium for Trump in Cleveland suggests his polling figures are as much of a hoax as he. Why is no one complaining that election 2016 showrunners are plagiarizing from previous lesser of evils season cliffhangers?

Hillary 2016 as Rosie the Riveter: like we really need another war-machinist.

You've seen meme: Hillary Clinton's face superimposed over Rosie the Riveter, the original image used to boost war production during WWII. It became a feminist icon in the 70s as historic proof women could do the job of men. Reprising the theme for Hillary 2016, Democratic party photoshoppers opted to erase the source of the original poster, as if it wasn't true now more than ever. I restored it. Hillary 2016, brought to you by the WAR PRODUCTION CO-ORDINATING COMMITTEE.

Yellen, Lagarde, Merkel, & May, already give us a taste of women-led injustice.

When Hillary Clinton ascends to the US presidency, she'll join a girls club of world leaders who've already shown that the feminine gender doesn't lack for sociopaths. It may be hard to know whether IMF head Christine Lagarde or FED chair Janet Yellen are mere figureheads or cold-blooded usurers in their own right. The UK's Theresa May hasn't had a chance yet to flex her Thatcherism, but few dispute that Angela Merkel's power is not as authentic as it is heartless. Those Americans campaigning for Hillary Clinton based on the assumption that women leaders could not possibly fail to restore humanity to a capitalist war-ravaged world, are ignoring the maternal instinct already disappointing on the world stage.   When the fracking industrialists came to Colorado Springs, they hired a white-haired grandmother to be their liaison to the city council. Predictably her fracking sold like hotcakes, if you'll pardon the sexist analogy. Hillary is the frackers' point-person to the unexploited regions of the world regardless of whether they beckon from war zones to be.

FBI says Hillary Clinton was “careless” with classified secrets, not treasonous for evading public record.

Pundits are decrying the unfair scrutiny on the presumptive successor-in-chief, pointing out that Condoleeza Rice and Colin Powell were never called out for using private servers. Other miscreants too, who should have been hauled before the justice department, tarred and feathered and pilloried. Carl Rove and Dubya Bush purged email records. Are they the new role models for what behavior is acceptable?!   And all that is missing the point. Hillary's use of a private server for state department emails was more than a security breach, it was an avoidance of keeping a public record. It was evasion of accountability. It was treasonable. Richard Nixon was in touble for erasing 18 minutes of taped conversation in the White House. Hillary has deleted millions of records in flagrant violation of rules of transparency meant to check government corruption. Fortunately Wikileaks snagged a bunch of them, and presumedly the NSA has archived them all, with the entirety of everyone's public and private record. Funny no one is reopening that can of worms.

Why is the New Yorker selling a bright eyed, androgynous Millennial Hillary?

Cheaky Bastards. The New Yorker pulls Sy Hersh, and their covers are establishment all the way. There have been four Trump covers, as many for Hillary, and curiously none for the senator from Vermont. This week's issue touts a resilient confident Hillary, conveyed oddly as a bright eyed baby-faced twenty-something scrapper. Remove the band-aid and her eyes are very wide apart. Inside, the same artist, propagandist recidivist Barry Blitt, rendered an editorial illustration of Bernie Sanders as Icarus falling, semi-naked, essentially the same unbecoming pose he gave coverboy Trump doing a belly flop to crash the GOP.

Hillary may be the presumptive head of the US empire but Trump is its asshole

Billionaire reality TV villain Donald Trump is bringing his presidential candidacy roadshow to Denver JULY 1ST. Like the rhetoric of the Westboro Baptist Church, Trump's utterances don't warrant rebuttal. But unlike the lone Fred Phelps family espousing their gutteral homophobia, The Donald has followers. Some see Trump as an underdog challenging the empire's vetted candidate. Some may be provocateurs staining his campaign with violence. What is certain however is that popular enthusiasm for Trump echoes his hate speech and dumbfuckery. If zenophobic bigotry congeals into a white power movement, that's the specter of fascism that begs a swift preemptive beatdown. Trump can tramp his celebration of brute ignorance wherever he wants, it's a free country, but local communities need not welcome his fan base aping the white thug's antisocial behavior.   Friday July 1. Western Conservative Summit, Colorado Conventional Center, Denver. Be there!

I’m pretty sure PRIVILEGE is voting for a warmongering sociopath to feel good about having a first woman president.

Oh, really, so it's "privilege" to support Bernie Sanders because he will take votes away from Hillary and thus enable a Trump presidency? Is it privilege to vote for Trump just for the entertainment value of seeing what the blowhard will do? Who is the only candidate with a direct record of mass murder and banksterism? I'll assert it's wildly privileged to inaugurate Hillary Clinton, just as you did Barack Obama, for the token victory of a first whatever, at the cost of giving the US regime a public mandate for more war and imperialism. Remember how we used to believe the world didn't hate us ordinary Americans, just our fraudulently elected president? Now you want to elect the Bush-est of evils. Privilege is knowing the most formidable military in the world will kill untold thousands of darker-skinned others for the sake of your security.

Insightful photos of Hillary Trump

I've been laughing at this photo for so long now that I'm not certain it is a photoshop mashup. It may be possible that Hillary and the Donald share the same face. Their only difference is gender, maybe. Hillary feminists are counting on their candidate's inherent maternal instinct to subvert her just one of the boys warhawkish temperment. I'm not convinced sociopathology reflects gender. If we want a bonafide benevolent mother, we might start with one that hasn't authored mass infanticide.

Hillary, Trump Hold Historical Meeting

DLA News Service, Denver, Colorado   Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, along with Bill and Melania have met privately to discuss the fall election. The meeting was conducted at a closed door meeting on Wall Street late Tuesday evening after sweeping wins by both candidates in Super Tuesday primaries. The candidates have made a tentative agreement, that after their nominations in their respective party conventions, they will suspend this fall's Presidential election. They have agreed that this is an effort to get their money out of politics, whereas they agree on so many of the political and social issues, they will each serve a two year term as President and vice President as soon as the Negros are evicted from the Whitehouse. Due to the limited number of bedrooms in the Whitehouse, it was decided that Bill and Melania would share a bedroom while Hillary and Donald shared the Presidential Suite. The one undecided issue is, who will get the first two year term. There was also some discussion on merging the Democratic and Republican parties to simplify the Presidential elections, with a ban on all other political parties as a cost cutting maneuver. The selection of all Senate and Congressional seats would then fall to the Vice Presidents office with no need of costly future elections.

Proud to be an American against war, with the exception being this election.

A good friend of mine used to wear this button everywhere. If it wasn't the button, he wore the t-shirt. "Proud to be an American against the war." Tonight he sported a button for BERNIE. Of course he did. We were joking around and he intimated he was not wholly disinclined to favor TRUMP. ME NEITHER, I told him! Trump coud bring down the empire single handed! No need to spark a revolution, Trump would pull a Samson out of sheer egoism! He'd gold plate our drones and they'd be grounded! He'd build a great wall and then we'd have a Great Wall! For tourists of all nationalities! A Great Wall couldn't stop the Huns, even Disney knows that! And reportedly, billionaires are against Trump, so what's the problem? Remember when we'd attend rallies dressed in suits and pretend we were "billionaires" advocating for war or bank bailouts? If billionaires wanted it we were against it. What the One Percent fear, we need! Haha! My friend would prefer Bernie of course, but Trump is definitely his third choice he told me. "Third" I asked? Well, first Bernie, then Hillary naturally, then Trump. OMG WTF.

War criminals occupy a more “special place in Hell” than young women who don’t vote for Hillary

Did you see how Hillary Clinton BEAMED as she accepted Madelyn Albright's endorsement for president? Albright explained there was a "special place in hell" for young women who didn't support women candidates. There are endless good reasons to elect women. Does Albright know any good women?   Madelyn Albright is of course a glaring exception to the hypothesis that a world led by woman would end war and injustice. Albright, like Condi Rice, Margaret Thatcher, and Hillary Clinton, is proof that the gender line does not filter for sociopaths. Albright famously declared the death of a half million Iraqi babies to be acceptable collateral damage in the US effort to depose Saddam Hussein. Clinton's murderous tenure has well surpassed Albright's. Both act like they haven't read Dante's guidebook which describes the special place they're going.

Hillary, Bernie, and Elizabeth Warren

I have read often that it was time for our first woman President (Hillary). As a man I would agree with that. But I would also remind the reader that Lizzie Borden was a woman and we know how that worked out for her parents, when she hacked them to pieces with an axe. If a man and woman were equally qualified for the presidency, I believe I would vote for the woman. But Hillary and Bernie are not equally qualified. I base my decision on two factors; where did Hillary and Bernie get their financial support? Hillary got her money from the bankers and corporations, while Bernie's money came from the people. We would be very foolish and naďve if we fail to understand the word "PAYBACK". When the dust of the presidential election has settled, the bankers would have their first woman in the white house. If it was Bernie, then the people would have their president. Of equal weight in my decision is Elizabeth Warren, a WOMAN that I deeply admire and respect, who just prior to the Iowa Caucus failed to endorse Hillary. When a woman like Elizabeth fails to support one of her own, it speaks loud and clear for Bernie. Hillary wants to be president for all the wrong reasons; her legacy, the bankers who gave her the opportunity, while Bernie wants to be president for all the right reasons, The American People who gave him the opportunity. Hillary wants to be the first woman president; but she is not that woman that America needs.

If you are not scared by GOP debates you are not drinking enough Koolaid.

After last night's televised Republican candidate debate there followed emails which begin: "if that didn't scare you, consider this", etc. Well, guess what? You're supposed to be scared! You're supposed to worry that any of a lineup of numbskulled fundamentalist zealots will appoint more Justice Scalias to the Supreme Court. You're supposed to worry that a racist hatemonger will lead the nation to unbriddled fascism. You're supposed to be so unsettled at the lowness of America's common denominator that you'll elect ANYONE to divert your handbasket going to Hades. Even, God forbid, that unscrupulous Hillary. You think Trump's supporters are stupid? Look at the idiot the election show-runners are taking you for! Reality TV couldn't script a more preposterous baffoon than Donald Trump. And he has followers in spite of his irrational carrying-on. Trump's appeal isn't owed to his outragious zenophobia or simpleton populism. Those play to the average liberal's fears. Trump grows more popular the more the corporate media opposes him. If ever there might be a Washington outsider to slay the oligarchs, it's Herr Trump the uber oligarch! A village idiot spews more truth than entrenched bureaucrats. Trump's act is still electoral Kabuki, but in the linear realm of possibilities, the smart voters are going for the longshot because the authorized contenders offer nothing. So how is this for scary: Trump fans are smarter than you! Calm down, it's not by much.

Hillary walks into Chipotle, orders a “burrito bowl.” Haha. How about a soup salad?

The New York Times reported the story about the presidential candidate slumming it with her constituents without any hint that they caught the disconnect. It may not be Bush Senior marvelling curiously at a barcode scanner or Bush Junior referencing the "Internets" but this was clearly Hillary Clinton's first time in a Mexican fast food grill. The choice is beef, chicken, pork or tofu, served in tacos, fajitas, burritos, or bowls. Unless her handlers intervene, Hillary is going to waltz into a Souper-Salad and ask for the soup salad.

April 15: NYC took a bridge, Chicago & Seattle took the streets, Portland took Town Hall, and Denver took the cake

DENVER, COLORADO- Yes, Denver's FIGHT FOR FIFTEEN march kept to the sidewalks. When ISO members (organizing the local "15 NOW" group) pushed the boundaries, SEIU marshals criticized them not just for agitating, but for pushing their socialist agenda. Occupy Denver activists held a prominent banner which referenced reigning minimum wage champion Socialist Alternative. Most of the attendees were union members whose representatives have obviously failed to credit the SA party or Seattle Councilwoman Kshama Sawant for the nation's first $15 minimum wage victory. We fielded questions all evening from marchers eager to know if an SA chapter was brewing in Colorado. TO BE FAIR, Denver's march did take an adventurous turn, by Denver standards, but the rally began as might be expected from an event dominated by the SEIU and other corporate unions and their immobile nonprofit cohorts. Denver's 4-15 rally started in the middle of CU-Denver's Auraria campus, invisible from any street and unseeable to even partipants arriving, until they turned the corner to find it, behind the Tivoli Center. Then organizers had a lineup of speakers which stretched well past expectations, trimming the crowd by over a third as supporters opted to slip away due to the unexpected cold front. Next participants were admonished to stick to the sidewalk, even on campus grounds, and applaud the police who'd agreed to permit the march. We were heading to a neighboring McDonalds, at least we were taking the scenic route. Throughout the rally and march, a brass band played, and members of the local band Flobots led chants and songs. This lent a fun energy but it did preclude ordinary marchers speaking out or centering the vocal messaging on anything more than the generic themes of financial discontent. Even as crowds lingered in front of McDonalds, the band played on, when poignant denunciations might have provided a suitable climax. Fortunately, a "Silver Brigade" had been deployed to patronize the fast food monster beforehand, to prevent managers from being able to lock the doors when the marchers arrived. McDs managers did lock the doors and they discussed a number of interesting defensive tactics under the noses of our operatives, but the managers were ultimately unable to refuse senior citizens demanding they be allowed to exit. This exit was timed to allow the Fight-for-Fifteen procession to march straight up to the counter, demanding a living wage, etc. Their objections heard, the marchers left and eventually crossed the street and dissolved into shortcuts through the Auraria campus. (Note: My account of our inside job may appear indiscrete, but I include it purposefully. One, because even with advance knowledge it's a difficult tactic to prevent, and two, because organizers of successive protests of establishments such as McDs need to include this tactic if they don't want to remain locked out.) The highlight for me was infusing the event theme with the S-word. Desperate as they were today to fight for a living wage, vowing "we'll be back" or else to "shut it down", these union adherants will shortly become the

Hillary is declaring her candidacy. Are we ready for another white president?

Not that another token Black president would be better. Was it really worth it, having a first Black president, considering he expanded the Neoliberal nonsense instead of curbing it? Why do we now expect a token woman will deliver our hoped-for, bait-and-switched change? Especially from a woman who comes from within the establishment. As with Barack Obama's brief stunt in the Senate, we've had a glimpse of Hillary's record already. It's awful. It's corrupt. Hillary Clinton behaves like she's beyond the law or morality. She's a Neoliberal, Zionist, loan officer for the bankers. I know feminists want a female president. Everyone would like to see a woman in the White House. I don't know any position of authority in which I wouldn't be more confident to see a woman. Maybe even ANY WOMAN except Hillary. How about let's hold a lottery instead of an election. Ladies only. African American women only. Draft Cynthia McKinney 2016.

Hillary launches presidential bid in a duck barrel. Hard choices? Not peace.

It would appear eternal candidate Hillary Clinton has launched her presidential bid into a barrel of ducks. She's titled her campaign bio HARD CHOICES. Let's see... Doing the right thing? Not really a hard choice. Favoring human rights? Not a hard choice. Peace? Social Justice? Humanity? Morality? These are not hard choices. For a warmongering sociopath, ok, impossible. Jailing bankers or war criminals? That should be no choice at all. For an informed public, rejecting another oligarch figurehead, even in the guise of electing a woman president, should not be a hard choice.
