GOP PAC supporting DWS should alarm everyone.

GOP and DNC share the same goal.
In the end, they exist for the same reason.
Their purpose is to stop Bernie Sanders of the world.

Democratic Party doesn't want Tim Canova. Republican Party doesn't want Tim Canova.
Harry Reid can't stand Alan Grayson. Obama doesn't like Alan Grayson.
The DNC has run a (dirty) campaign against Bernie Sanders this primary season.

Don't be fooled by GOP's feigned outrage and contempt for Trump. Republicans will always cry about something because they're crybabies. They cry about Trump because they weren't so sure that he's gonna listen to them.

GOP establishment WILL support Hillary Clinton, if they can't tame Trump the way they want; Dark money will be flowing in through PACs with unrecognizable party affiliations. Ballot boxes will be tampered with (as they probably have been in the Dem primary). Voter registration files will be hacked and switched(as they probably have been in the Dem primary). The GOP and the DNC will unite on that, and they will find a way to get their way.

But I think Trump is already right there with GOP establishment. Trump has always been an AstroTurf anyway.
And that means, when Trump becomes their nominee in July, even his scattered talk of pseudo-populist message will have been all for naught; His economic policy will be Romney's, and foreign policy will be the same as what Sheldon Adelson and Lindsey Graham could hope for.

My point is, they win either way.
There will be very little difference between Hillary Clinton presidency and Donald Trump presidency. Except perhaps, with the number of people being deported.
They will get pretty much everything they want, unless we get Bernie.

Trump is not gonna raise taxes on himself, nor is Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton has a special fervor for bombing people overseas, and Trump will be no less interested in doing that.
Hillary Clinton doesn't have a problem with mass incarceration, neither does Trump.
Trump will not pay attention to the Black Lives Matter, nor will Hillary Clinton(She might do just about the same as Obama on this issue, which is not a whole lot).
Hillary Clinton is not interested in bringing native Americans' perspective into office, and neither is Trump.
Hillary Clinton's not gonna regulate Wall Street, and neither is Trump.
Hillary Clinton doesn't care about the poor, neither does Trump.
Trump doesn't care about civil liberties and our right to privacy, neither does Clinton.
Trump will have no problem with net neutrality being destroyed, nor will Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton's priorities do not include overturning Citizens United, neither do Trump's.
Trump is not interested in transforming energy system, neither is Hillary Clinton (Best case scenario, she's gonna do just about the same as Obama, which is not a whole lot).

DWS is endorsed by Obama and Karl Rove. The GOP and the DNC are working together to keep Tim Canova out of Washington.
If you still think the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are not colluding to keep this corrupt regime going, then explain to me how this corrupt regime is in any way sustainable.
If you wanna claim that DWS is just a matter of "a few bad apples" and not the entire apple cart, please go ahead and make your case.

If you're about to buy what Obama has to say about "peaceful settlement"

with regard to the situation in South China Sea...Don't.

Propaganda Terms in the Media and What They Mean - Noam Chomsky


See what the "peace process" means in actuality. It usually brings anything but peace.

Jon Stewart: "Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe a real person doesn't exist underneath there"

Kyle's rant following Jon Stewart's comments is nothing new if you subscribe to Secular Talk, but Jon Stewart's comments at the beginning of the clip are a must-see. This is exactly the kind of comment you'd expect from Jon Stewart regarding Hillary Clinton.

John Boehner: Ted Cruz Is "Lucifer In The Flesh"

OK...This is the first time I find myself agreeing with John Boehner.
Although, Lucifer might take offense at this.

So who do you side with?

In case anyone hasn't tried it yet.


Unsurprisingly, I was 96% with Bernie, 95% with Jill Stein, and 60% with Hillary. And then I sided with some libertarians by 40% or less.

My 1st and 2nd choices are pretty clear

Abby Martin on What Hillary Clinton Really Represents

Empire Files -TeleSur

This is what we're up against.

I stand with Abby Martin in saying that as a woman, I absolutely reject Hillary Clinton's bourgeois feminism...for all women including those under her bombs.

TYT -Let Us Whisper Of A Dream

Oh my God this segment is epic. It's a MUST SEE

Crosstalk -Europe Terrorized (ft. Pepe Escobar)

A very cool-headed assessment on the Brussels attack. Check it out.

By and large, I agree with all of the speakers' general points, having traveled to Belgium before (TBH, it was a bit of shock to see the disparity between Brussels and some of the most affluent, well-governed cities in Germany).

It covers some very enduring problems that EU is facing in terms of governance, the disparate needs between nation-states in the South, West, and the East. And of course, some of the challenges when it comes to its entanglement with US foreign policy, the issue of collective security, and reliance on the NATO, which, in essence, is an expansionist Cold War institution with its bureaucratic inertia adding problems to Europe's long-term security -be they the problems on the eastern border with Ukraine crisis, migrant crisis involving Syria and Turkey, and terrorism.

[Video] TYT Interview -Ashley Williams with Cenk Uygur

Why I confronted Hillary Clinton on her race history

Cenk did a great interview with Ashley Williams.
I like that she has radical, clear-headed agendas that transcend party line and electoral politics.
