The Greenback Coup and the Death of Democracy in America

 I find that Hillary is far more dangerous than either of the Republicans.

Trump is a buffoon. He is an incompetent. He talks himself up constantly, but that is really his only talent. He will be happy to fly around in Air Force One and pretend to be president.

Cruz is more dangerous. He wants to make the USA a theocracy. Fortunately, the entire Congress hates him with a passion. I doubt he will be able to cause any lasting damage.

Both of those candidates are one termers. There isn't any way America will hold it's nose twice.

Hillary, as I said, is far more dangerous. She pretends to be a progressive Democrat. She isn't. She is actually a hard right warhawk Republican. She is simply using the Democratic party infrastructure to get elected, as it's convenient todo ... more »

When ISIS captured the Iraqi city of Mosul last summer, it also nabbed a bonanza of weapons, ammunition, and vehicles from the fleeing Iraqi army.

In case you doubted that TTIP (and TPP) would weaken environmental protections...

thanks, +Pamela Zuppo 

According to Greenpeace, the documents indicate that American trade negotiators pressed their European counterparts to loosen important environmental, consumer protection and other provisions as part of the deal, known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.

The documents, which were released in Berlin at 11 a.m., consist of 248 pages, or about two-thirds of the latest negotiating text, which were said to have been prepared sometime between the latest round of talks, in New York last week.

"These leaked documents confirm what we have been saying for a long time: T.T.I.P. would put corporations at the center of policy making, to the detriment of environment and public health," Jorgo Riss, director of Greenpeace E.U., said on Monday. "We have known that the E.U. position was bad, now we see the U.S. position is even worse. A compromise between the two would be unacceptable.”___In case you doubted that TTIP (and TPP) would weaken environmental protections...

The Franklin Center, an insidious Koch influence in the media, and the birth of the Tea Party

And yes, Rush Limbugh is involved, as are the unethical, decrepit Koch fuckers.

The Right Online Agenda conference included such breakout sessions as ‘Intro to Online Activism’ and ‘Killing the Death Tax’ and featured speakers such as conservative U.S. Representative Michele Bachman of Minnesota and Tea Party activist Sharron Angle, a Republican who was then running against Harry Reid in the election for U.S. Senate in Nevada. No Democratic legislators were included in the program. The finale of the Las Vegas conference was a ‘November is Coming Rally.’ ”

There are other, more damning, stories of, for example, producing propaganda in order to destroy liberal politicians, etc.

The Kochs are clearly very serious about controlling their propaganda and using it to its maximum effect.

The dangers of a Hillary presidency, beautifully explained by +William Wells.

Writing in Bernie will split the liberal vote and almost certainly ensure a win for Trump or Cruz. But as William notes, although that will be incredibly distasteful -- not to mention dangerous (oligarchy, environmental destruction, erosion of human rights back to the 14th century), it should only last for four years. We may be able to survive that. A Hillary presidency would signal a much more lingering death under the growing power of the oligarchy and the uber-rich.

What's worst: Fascism for four years (Trump), Christio-fascism for four years (Cruz) or entrenched, perhaps unescapable oligarchy/plutocracy (i.e., capital-fascism).

The Greenback Coup and the Death of Democracy in America

 I find that Hillary is far more dangerous than either of the Republicans.

Trump is a buffoon. He is an incompetent. He talks himself up constantly, but that is really his only talent. He will be happy to fly around in Air Force One and pretend to be president.

Cruz is more dangerous. He wants to make the USA a theocracy. Fortunately, the entire Congress hates him with a passion. I doubt he will be able to cause any lasting damage.

Both of those candidates are one termers. There isn't any way America will hold it's nose twice.

Hillary, as I said, is far more dangerous. She pretends to be a progressive Democrat. She isn't. She is actually a hard right warhawk Republican. She is simply using the Democratic party infrastructure to get elected, as it's convenient to do so since she is a former democratic first lady. The Democratic party is where her name recognition is, and where she can pull the levers of power that have been amassed in her and Bill's time in Washington.

Hillary never met a war she didn't like. I think her record shows that she is far more likely to initiate global conflict than either Republican. Hillary is also the favored candidate of the Military Industrial Complex. They make huge amounts of money during wartime, and are happy to share it with Hillary by way of the famous "speaking fees" which are actually bribes. Hillary effectively gets a commission on all the bloody mayhem the US military dishes out.

And she has similar "speaking fee" arrangements with other corporations. The drug war will never end under Hillary, as she gets support from the private prison industry. The drug war keeps their business booming, filling their prisons with non-violent offenders that for the most part are easily manageable, but quite profitable nonetheless. These prisons then sell the prisoner's labor to Fortune 500 corporations for pennies an hour. Corporations get incredibly cheap labor for their call centers, workers who can't call in sick or quit, and who cost nearly nothing. The prisons make obscene profits, and Hillary gets a cut of it all.

Again, Hillary gets a piece of all banking and health insurance in America. She has basically extorted both industries, promising to derail or veto any legislation that would interfere with their profits. So, forget about bank regulation, or universal healthcare, or even an answer to the student loan problem under Hillary. She talks a good game to get elected, but her interests are clearly opposed to her rhetoric.

And then, by far, the most important reason that Hillary should never, ever, be allowed to become President. It's simple.

A Hillary Presidency is the death of democracy itself.

Hillary is the poster girl for big money in politics. With her many scandals, her bad campaigning, and the strength of her challenger, she should lose and lose badly.

But corporate America has picked up the tab. They are about to find out if spending billions of dollars to influence the political process will get them a candidate that will enable trillions of dollars in graft back to them. Hillary is that candidate. This election cycle is a proof of concept trial to see if our democracy truly can be purchased. We know the press can be bought, there are only six corporations that control all of the media, so that makes for a manageable and coordinated media front for the "greenback coup" that Wall Street is attempting. Incumbent politicians are happy to lend Hillary their endorsements and superdelegate votes in return for financial support, so they can easily be bought with the "Hillary Victory Fund". 

And just to clinch the deal, owning the corporations that make the voting tabulation machines, as well as infiltration of the political parties at the state level that actually run the elections themselves, and there is pretty much a lock on determining who our next President will be.

And of course, this is why a President Hillary Clinton isn't just horribly distasteful. Her politics alone account for that. Instead, she is actively dangerous, as her election will signal the death of any real democracy here in the USA. Once Hillary makes the up to three Supreme Court appointments that are coming to the next administration, she will pack the court with corporatist judges, and the "greenback coup" will be complete. They will make it unconstitutional to challenge corporate dominance of the electoral process, and every subsequent election we have will be bought and paid for, and decided by the oligarchs.

I won't ever give up my vote to that. I believe America can work for it's people. With Hillary and the corporatist coup, the United States of America that I know will forever become "The Land of the Greed and the Home of the Slave".___The dangers of a Hillary presidency, beautifully explained by +William Wells.

Well, knock me over with a feather

Rich oil companies don't want to piss off, or otherwise inconvenience, the rich and powerful. The poor rest of us, on the other hand... fuck 'em.

Fracking companies deliberately keep their wells away from the “big houses” of wealthy and potentially influential people, a top executive from one of the country's most prominent shale drilling companies told a gathering of attorneys at a seminar on oil and gas environmental law earlier this month, according the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Well said, +Geoffrey Snyder 

What I love the most about the hysteria on the Right over the new $20 bill is they are completely neglecting the new $10 and new $5 bills that will also have various and sundry people who are female, black or <gasp> both. Have they just not noticed yet?

It's just horrifying how much Obama is destroying our country by insisting that we publicly admit that there are more than just one kind of person in our history that deserves to be honored. I mean, what if they had also chosen people like Chief Wilma Mankiller (Probably about as well as the reception of the Sacagawea dollar)? It would have definitely been a sign of the End Times. How can this country survive if we treating our non-Straight White Christian Men like people too?

The ruthlessness of Hillary's campaign

Anything to "win"... or at least to get into the White House.

thanks, +Tim Elkins 

Blatant astroturfing and harassment.
 
To Hillary and her supporters: if you feel the need to protect your candidate by downvote brigades and banhammers, you might just have an awful candidate.
