It was a foregone conclusion but Hillary Rodham-Clinton has just locked down the Democratic party nod to replace Barack Obama as the reigning imperial warlord of planet Earth. She may as well just start picking out the color of the drapes for the Oval Office because it is a done deal. Elizabeth Warren? You have to be kidding. Joe Biden? He personifies Lyndon B. Johnson’s famous description of Gerald Ford as “so dumb he can’t fart and chew gum at the same time" - no way. The Republicans have zilch and their coming electoral triumph in November will be washed away by Hillary and mass voter turnout for the Democratic party like a silly little sandcastle in 2016. While the push is on for the restoration of the Bush dynasty with Dubya’s smarter brother Jeb, let's face it - he just isn’t racist enough to appeal to the dregs of the GOP base. Chris Christie? The greatest gasbag flameout in the state of NJ since The Hindenburg crash. Rand Paul? He tries too hard to appeal that the same base and ends up being associated with Negro hating yahoo’s like conservative talk radio hero Cliven Bundy while moderating his principled criticism of the NSA Stasi and US interventionism and never ending war and serves as his own worst enemy. When it comes to triangulation there is nothing quite like a Clinton and Hillary will be sworn in as the forty fifth president of the United States come January 2017. Chisel it in stone.
Mrs. Clinton’s de facto entry into the race occurred when she jumped on the authoritarian bandwagon when she spoke at the University of Connecticut this past week and pulled off a Mike Rogers style dirty knee-capping of former government contractor turned NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Mrs. Clinton’s remarks also doubled down on the Snowden as Russian agent meme so hammered by Rogers and this fellow jackbooted scum when she invoked the devil Putin along with the patriotic Snowden. I excerpt from a piece at Mother Jones where the video can also be viewed:
Clinton questioned Snowden's intentions in fleeing the country before offerring his information to the public. "When he emerged and when he absconded with all that material, I was puzzled, because we have all these protections for whistleblowers," Clinton said, when the moderator asked if there had been any positive effects for security policy following the NSA leaks. "If he were concerned and wanted to be part of the American debate, he could have been. But it struck me as—I just have to be honest with you—as sort of odd that he would flee to China, because Hong Kong is controlled by China, and that he would then go to Russia, two countries with which we have very difficult cyber-relationships, to put it mildly."
Clinton also suggested that Snowden had inadvertently helped terrorists. "I think turning over a lot of that material—intentionally or unintentionally, because of the way it can be drained—gave all kinds of information, not only to big countries, but to networks and terrorist groups and the like," she said.
Not that Hillary’s credentials as a world class bullshitter were ever in question and as one whose inclination is to go full neocon to the extent that she is worshipped by warmongers but she is parroting the official state lies in a warm up for what is to be a tour de force media blitzkrieg for the next two years or so. We already have seen that nobody in the corrupt state-corporate media ever bothers to call any of these criminals in high places out for their horseshit, we saw it with the lies peddled on Syria’s alleged gas attack, on the NSA unconstitutional surveillance and data-mining and now on pushing a false one-sided narrative for a war on Russia via Ukraine. The presstitutes live for a chance to carry water for someone like Hillary, the nation’s first female president who is hellbent on ensuring her place in history and nothing could be more pleasing to the power elite, the moronic identity group obsessed liberals and their grand wars for humanitarianism than her finishing the job of the establishment of the global Empire.
There is no better example of the coming wave of media adoration than the recent gut-wrenching AP Story entitled “McCain-Clinton Bond Crosses Partisan Waters” from which I excerpt the following:
Sen. John McCain and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton share a friendship forged in the Senate and on fact-finding trips around the globe. And then there were those vodka shots in Estonia.
He's a former Republican presidential nominee. She could be the next Democratic presidential nominee. Lately, the Clintons and McCains seem to have embraced each other, offering up their families' working relationship as an example of ways that political leaders can overcome the partisan divide.
Clinton and McCain are appearing together Saturday in Sedona, Ariz., at the McCain Institute's annual gathering of political, business and philanthropic leaders. The closed-door forum - no reporters are allowed - comes as Clinton presents an above-the-fray image in speeches that often criticize the polarization of national politics and could serve as a warm-up to a presidential campaign.
Last month, McCain was a guest of the Clintons at their annual meeting of college students. Former President Bill Clinton welcomed McCain to the stage at Arizona State University, drawing laughs when he suggested their friendship might be a liability.
McCain is "a good friend of Hillary's and mine, although we permit him to deny it at election time," Clinton said. He credited McCain, who spent 5 1/2 years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam, with helping him normalize relations with Vietnam in 1995.
Clinton recalled that McCain conferred with him during the 2008 campaign after Russia invaded neighboring Georgia. "You called me and said, `Look, I know you're on the other side, but we need to talk about Georgia,'" Clinton said. McCain returned the favor, complimenting Clinton's post-White House work and willingness "to make tough decisions."
The Clinton-McCain relationship flourished in the Senate while the two worked together on the Armed Services Committee; they traveled with other lawmakers to Iraq, the Arctic and the Baltics. During a 2004 visit to Estonia, the senators reportedly shared vodka shots after a day of meetings, a tale that generated chatter as the two prepared for their 2008 presidential campaigns.
"From a personal experience, there is nothing quite like traveling in Europe with John McCain and Hillary Clinton. It's like being on tour with the Beatles and the (Rolling) Stones," said former Sen. John E. Sununu, a New Hampshire Republican who attended the Baltic trip. He politely declined to discuss the vodka story.
You just have to love it, the references to partisan acrimony apparently never take into account the two things that ALWAYS unite the dueling crime syndicates in Washington – WAR! There will be plenty of it too with the Clinton restoration and by the time that she is finished Obama will look like a real Nobel Peace Prize winner by comparison. When a bloodthirsty, pathological war criminal like John McCain has your back you have been firmly identified as someone who can be sure to max out the body count.
