On "The Late Show" on Thursday night, just last night, Bernie Sanders gave a clear "No" when asked if he was going to endorse Hillary Clinton, because Sanders wanted his supporters to be heard, and the Sanders camp wasn't sold on Clinton's ability to move in the direction that was necessary. The next morning, like magic, Bernie pulled a Dennis Gartman, and flipped when he told MSNBC that he was going to vote for Hillary after all.
What is most troublesome about these shootings is that the story seems already prepared by the government and is immediately set. We are fed the story before there is time for investigation by government or media. The media never investigate. The media just repeat the government’s story over and over until it is set in everyone’s mind. Contrary evidence is just discarded.It will be difficult, perhaps even impossible, to get any truth out of the Orlando shooting. Too many vocal and well organized interest groups have a strong stake in the government’s explanation.
Who knows how to pivot from the basic news story of the day, and ask the pertinent questions that stem from said market event for the analysts to expound upon to add that next level analysis and market insight.
"In this country, we do not really have democracy... I see the Republicans and Democrats and all they do is fight and scream at each other, [but the] policies never change.the personal fighting — is a distraction from the real issue, which is personal liberty and the bankruptcy of this country and the failure of our foreign policy. That’s where the problem is."
"Nobody's even talking about this indictment. What happens with that?" Sarandon told MSNBC's Chris Jansing. "Besides the trust issue of catching her in so many lies..." "Well, there has been no indictment," Jansing responded. "No, but there's going to be. There's going to be. I mean, it's inevitable."
Having pledged to end the wars of his predecessor, President Obama came into office almost eight years ago as an anti-war candidate but instead has now been at war longer than any other American president. Mr. Obama, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, has made endless promises of "bring the troops home" or "no boots on the ground" but will have a longer tour of duty as a wartime president than Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard M. Nixon or his hero Abraham Lincoln. As the anti-war candidate speaks today as president to remember the fallen heroes, just days after his visit to Japan, one wonders who will be delivering this address next year.
As technology continues to fragment communication and the spread of ideas, people will continue to pursue their own individual interests with the effect of further cultural divergence. We are heading toward a world where we can build our own echo chambers and shut off anything we find offensive or unpleasant. In other words, if you think that cultural fragmentation is bad now — or that the Trump supporters are suggesting extreme measures in order to reimpose a degree of cultural hegemony - you ain’t seen nothing yet. The decentralization of warfare through the adptation of drone technology and things like 3-D printed guns and bullets means that many skirmishes will likely be fought over this stuff again.
"It’s pretty remarkable," "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough said of Clinton’s response to the OIG watchdog report "I don’t understand why you put out a statement like that,” Scarborough added. "Stop lying, stop digging." The slam continued: “'I screwed up. I’m terribly sorry,'" he offered as alternate responses. "'I hope the American people will forgive me and I hope they will let us move on to the issues that matter.'”
There is a disturbance in the Force. At an accelerating rate, the American people are realizing the two-party system is rigged to ensure the corrupt oligarchs of the deep state continue to rule the roost. The ‘lesser of two evils’ argument is causing more chaos than ever before - because this time around, we’re dealing with the two most disliked candidates in American political history. It’s not even close. Voters won’t be holding their noses as they cast their ballots this year - they’ll have gas masks strapped to their heads. The following list outlines 10 independent or 3rd party candidates you can vote for in 2016...
Comments made by Bernie Sanders this week may just have blindsided and disillusioned swathes of his support base. Some of those with higher expectations of the ‘peacenik’ candidate breathed a collective sigh of disappointment after he endorsed Obama’s extrajudicial drone assassination program.
"We The People" don’t choose our presidents; they are hand-picked by a powerful group of political party insiders - parties that have long since sold out to the highest bidders. What we have on our hands in America is a rigged oligarchy, and that’s not a conspiracy theory - it’s fact. Now, however, millions of Americans are becoming aware of it thanks to the populist campaigns of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. America’s elections are controlled by a big club, but unfortunately, "you ain’t in it!"
Who will lead the Democratic Party in the general election is a political question, not a mathematical one. If Sanders’s momentum continues to grow, the superdelegates would ignore that fact at their peril.
