absolutely brutal pro-Biden anti-Hillary article

After raising $1 million for Barack Obama during his two presidential runs, New York businessman Jon Cooper was exactly the kind of high-powered political “bundler” Hillary Clinton wanted on her team during this year’s run. But after agreeing to serve as a “Hillstarter” — as the Clinton campaign had dubbed its elite fundraisers — Cooper sat down at his computer a few months ago to write a fundraising pitch for the former secretary of state … and froze.

“I was trying to come up with a rationale for her candidacy — and I couldn’t do it,” Cooper tells Yahoo News. Clinton, he concluded, was “too calculating, too cautious, too controlled.”

How do we change the culture in local police departments?

They are often so structurally racist that persons of color are often participants in the violence against persons of color.

Also, we talk about big money buying our government. Well, with drug prohibition we have powerful groups with infinite funds to corrupt law enforcement.

Then we have the cover-ups that come from the tribal aspect of police work. No different than doctors who cover for their colleagues, or hospitals who sweep things under the rug. It could be very dangerous for an officer to go against that flow.

How do you change the culture of a corrupt and structurally racist tribe?

Bernie has the luxury of being able to tell the truth

Not being beholden to big money donors frees him up.

He is not locked into half-measures. He can call for the breakup of
the big banks. He can call for the return of Glass-Steagall.
He can rail against the Billionaire class.

Of course, Donald Trump, as an actual Billionaire.....has even more freedom. He can literally say anything, true or otherwise.

They are the two sides of the money coin.
