Election Impressions

I think Trump is pandering because he believes that is the only way to slide past the temple guards. Judging by the what I read, it doesn't look like the zios are buying it and they seem to be all piling on him. The real test will be when he chooses his cabinet. If he chooses another Rahm, then all bets are off.

That is not to say that they don't have a Lolita tape on him, but he would probably brag about it if they did. Character assassination doesn't work on someone like him as he takes it as a badge of honor.

I don't like Donald. However, he is not running for the position of the Pope. I couldn't care less how many skirts he has chased, how many  crotches he has grabbed, or how many women he has groped. It is not like he is in a company of saints. Here is a video of Obama displaying his erection to a bevy of giggling female reporters:

All I need from Donald is to upset the applecart and pull open the blinds to let the sunlight in and to send the cockroaches scampering from the kitchen floor. I need him to stop all our wars and bring our troops home. I need him to stop sending foreign aid (bribes) to all countries, especially Israel. I need him to break up the foreign lobbies and force AIPAC to register as an agent of a foreign nation. I have no problem with immigrants in general, but we don't need any more foreigners to move here until we can find jobs for all our people and shelter for all our homeless. Charity begins at home. But most of all, I want the DOJ under him to investigate the entire political elite, starting with congress, and incarcerate them all.

If he does that, he can have all the tail he wants, and I won't even bat an eyelid.

Magnum Opus, Taxi style! Love it!

Ah, our 4-yearly festival of make-believe and despondency as we contemplate who has been chosen for us to “elect.” From a population of 300+ million, lo and behold, the best of the best! A war-mongering shrew with a trail of corpses in her wake, and a flamboyant, narcissistic megalomaniac. These, ladies and gentlemen, are our saviors, who will lead us to Nirvana.

 Emails, cover-ups, crotch-grabbing, oh my! Pots calling kettles black. The wife of an ex lecher-in-chief, proclaiming how offended she is for all women because of her potty-mouthed opponent, and Israel-pandering homilies. Oh, we are not offended by the carnage we perpetrated on the planet, with drones annihilating young dreams of the brown-skinned, reducing the Middle East to a factory of refugees to repopulate Europe, drowning in blood and the Mediterranean alike. But, we are so offended because the orange one said a naughty! A nation of hypocrites and stooges, two steps away from self-destruction.

Salvation? Hardly. The best we can hope for is chaos, and perhaps, that is what we need to bring down the pillars of this cesspool of corrupt bottom feeders. A revolution of a different kind – with an orange bull in a china shop, wrecking it all so that we can start over. Is that too much to hope for? Or is this another step in making our nihilistic and dystopic future complete?

Happy Halloween! This one may last for years.

One observation that I make about WikiLeaks is that it relies on whistleblowers for its information. So, this whole discourse about "hackers" and Russia is nonsense. WikiLeaks and others did not "hack" anything to get the Clinton emails or all the other scandalous information. It was gifted these by insiders, including those in the CIA and FBI, not to mention the Whitehouse.

Just look at the explosion of inside dope being released this week from the FBI alone:

Here is a bunch of documents on Vince Foster that people have been asking for many years:

https://vault.fbi.gov/vincent-foster/vincent-foster-part-01-of-04/view

Then, yesterday, they released information about Marc Rich, who was pardoned by the male Clinton:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/fbi-releases-bill-clinton-closed-case-files-days-232844166.html

Even the reopening of the investigation on Clinton by the FBI was apparently done, at least partly, due to internal pressure within the FBI who made Comey's life a misery.

 

We forget, we are many and they are few. If we can block out the noise from the MSM and defy the PTB, we can change the power equation, just as the Soviets did, and do so bloodlessly. We have much to learn from the Russians.

 

 

P.S. I don't endorse WikiLeaks, and Assange has never said a foul word about Israel or Zionists. This is limited hangout.

You asked:

Begs the question here:  how the hell did we get this low? 

Oh, that is simple: we were infiltrated by a horde of Israel-firsters who, over several centuries, put themselves in positions of power: political, financial, and media, and systematically deconstructed this great nation for the benefit of a tribe that only had its self-interest in mind, America be damned.

No mystery there. The real question is, now that we are here, what are we going to do about it?

Well, now that her downfall looks imminent, the rats will leave the sinking ship, and all her shills will distance themselves from her. Watch as more of the media backpedals in the days ahead.

Taxi,

Plato is a believer in Aristotlean "virtue ethics," which says that the actions of a virtuous person are moral irrespective of the intent or consequences of those actions. I think that is naive in its faith in human nature that someone is consistently good or consistently bad because of who they are.

No, we do need laws, and we take pride in being a nation of laws rather than a nation of people. Where it all falls apart is when we don't evenly uphold and enforce those laws as depicted by the blindfolded "lady justice." We have one law for me and another for thee. Social contract theory is based on the concept of justice and fairness.

Who accounts for the theft of our fortune and the death of the millions over the past several decades (and yes, even before that)? If the likes of Clinton, Obama, the shrub, and all the king's neocons, etc., can just walk around like cherubs with no blood on their hands, then we can no longer call ourselves a nation of laws - perhaps we never could before either.

 

 

… And Goodbye To All That

@Walid -

he's mostly into defending his  Judaism against the evils of Zionism; it's not really about creating a Palestinian state

In that sense, he is not unlike many of us who, while sympathetic to the plight of the Palestinians, find our own interests threatened by the same purveyors, and are thus companions on parallel journeys. Phil Giraldi says it best:

while I grieve for the Palestinians my role as an American must be to assess the damage that Israel is doing to my own country

Those are the same thoughts that resonate with me, and probably many others here.

@straightline

A very cogent critique of MW with which I concur completely. It was inevitable that the more interesting posters would ultimately depart that site out of sheer boredom, leaving only the current denizens to bay at each other. I have a feeling that without the JVP funding, that site would wither in a week with only readership support.

@Danaa

All I know that the "end' times are not too far off, so I won't lament that which hasn't really passed.

Very powerful prose. It would be great if you could spare the time and effort to post original articles on Taxi's blog - not just as comments, but as full length posts. I wouldn't be surprised if Taxi welcomed such addition to her blog. In the past, she has permitted me to have full length posts here, and your insights are far superior to mine.

@Walid

It's when it comes across only as bleeding for the plight of the Palestinians that I get upset.

I understand that sentiment. Nobody loves a hypocrite. With the influence of JVP, MW has long ceased to be a site to visit. I pop in for a quick look from time to time, but the content is so staid and repetitious, that I seldom tarry for too long. I mean, you can only read the BS discussions pretending to be debates between the zios and the anti-zios for just so long before screaming basta! Once I stopped learning anything new there, it ceased to be worth my while to go through moderation hell to post anything there. I got censored enough times that I can no longer be bothered.

I can't pretend to understand why the Arab countries betrayed Palestine - probably the greed and corruption of their rulers. I got the feeling that the common masses were supportive of the Palestinian cause and generally anti-Israel - but, of course, they have no power to do anything. They have their own struggles ahead to topple their rulers in a real Arab-spring, unlike the farce we just witnessed in Egypt.

I had a hard time getting an in depth conversation going – here, kind of like we used to have on MW.

That might be hard to do as some of the people who gravitated to this site may be more comfortable with the occasional post or comment. I am only able to post sporadically, although I do try to make my posts more substantive, rather than single-line comments (although I have done the latter on occasion).

I wonder about the posters at MW. Some of them seem to be able to devote countless hours to commenting online on a daily basis. Some of them are probably retired people with unlimited time to devote to this pursuit.
