The Clinton Nonevent

FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation against indicting Hillary Clinton is truly a nonevent. In the big picture, it means very little and signifies nothing new. Clinton indictment or not, the money dominated, corrupt, and violent system survives. (Image)

What if Clinton had been indicted?

Had Clinton been charged, that would have been the end of her campaign. All of the zombie Democrats led by their degenerate Hollywood champions could not have put her back together again.

Would we have felt the Bern?

The Sanders campaign lost its luster and claim to integrity when Sanders quietly admitted he would vote for Hillary.

How do you maintain your integrity while voting for the former Secretary of State responsible for 250,000 dead Syrian people in a war she helped start?

How do you maintain you’re leading a movement when you promise your vote to someone who knew or should have known she was breaking Federal law in the way she handled highly sensitive information?

Sanders lost what he could have had when he genuflected to Hillary and her Wall Street patrons.

Since Clinton is the candidate of Wall Street, it’s reasonable to assume that the power elite had a contingency plan in case Comey actually did his job. They did. Recall Joe Biden’s brief hints that he might seek the Democratic nomination.  That was a card that could be played or ignored as events unwound.

The Biden option would have been greeted with fanfare and flourish. We would have heard this and much more: This is the election of our lifetime. Can the party afford an experiment with Sanders and risk a President Trump? Etc., etc.  

Only someone with the odious history and presence of Hillary Clinton could make it a close race with Donald Trump.   She polls just a point or two ahead of Trump in key states. A Biden candidacy would have carried the day.

President Biden would be an Obama light, a marginal improvement over the president’s dreadful record. Under Biden, we wouldn’t instigate a war with Russia. Middle East policy might be a bit more rational.

But, we would have the same United States Senate, the same House of Representatives, and the same spineless Supreme Court.

We’d have the same nonstop enrichment of Wall Street courtesy of just about everybody else in the country.

We’d have the same bloated military establishment, the same national security state interference in our private affairs, and the crippling budget to support both.

And, we would have the same crooked election system that put Clinton in a position where her illegal activities came to represent an issue of national significance.

We’ve been in a state of political and ethical free-fall for some time.

We’re about to hit bottom.

    The bottom is nigh! Disagree that Biden would have been a viable candidate, except in his own eyes. Sanders may be too old to fight. I’ve got some adhesive remover for my bumper stickers.

    • His comments on the emails was “the tell.” I think you’re right, beating HRC would have been a shock. He’s not in the club and never will be and that goes for the rest of us. Good luck with that adhesive remover.

      I respectfully or humorously disagree on Biden. He’s the perfect Man on a White Horse. They could have sold him. My lord, they have sunk so low and they’re taking the rest of us for a ride.!

    Biden would have been a viable candidate vs. Trump. Hillary can only win if she gets the full endorsement of the Diebold Corporation.

    Just a mere week ago, the corrupt 6%-approval Mockingbird media was crowing that Trump has a bad three weeks and his numbers were in freefall. Yeah, well, how did Hillary’s week go? Secret Service expose, Benghazi report, email server breaches — that will help her “trustworthy” numbers.

    Sanders wimped out on several occasions (“nobody cares about your damn emails,” not protesting California vote fraud, “I’m voting for Hillary) and betrayed his movement. They have nowhere to go, but toward Trump.

    Mike Collins says we;re about to hit bottom. Mike, we just did. Now there’s nowhere to go but up. #Trump2016

  • Jun 6, 2016 Democratic Primary Riddled In Election Fraud; Do NOT Speak of Theft as Hillary Clinton Win

    It is IMPERATIVE that we do not allow ourselves to be drawn into discussing the Democratic Primary in the false media narratives of lies and deceit woven to install Clinton into the Democratic Presidential nomination.

      I like your chutzpah and your refusal to knuckle under to the fraudulent system, but unless Bernie himself stands up and throws down the gantlet and says I do not accept these fraudulent results, there is no “movement” and no “political revolution”. There’s just a steaming pile of fresh bullshit.

      • If it were to happen would it not have already taken place by now? Here is your sign!

        Jun 8, 2016 Nigel Farage: I think Hillary Clinton is a crook

        Express Debate – 3 June 2016 Nigel Farage MEP, Leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), Co-President of the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD) Group in the European Parliament

          Farage is my hero! Too bad he’s already left. Don’t blame him a bit, given what he’d got to wrestle with here. Bernie hasn’t yet endorsed Clinton, actually. Michael Collins doesn’t have good information. He’s not happy with the platform. He seems to think that he can change the party from within and if Hillary then claims she’s going to advocate free college, she’ll actually do it. Apparently, unlike Farage, he doesn’t think she’s a crook. And he seems to think he can command the party because he created a “movement”.

        • Priceless! Farage is a loose canon but he’s often pointed in the right direction. As for Brexit, the British people had a choice that they didn’t fully understand: getting the austerity screwing under the Remain crowd or the soon to be rolled out screwing by the aristocrats who ran Leave. i think it’s ironic that Cameron and Boris Johnson were best palls at Oxford. It’s all in the family.

          • Thanks M.C. and please share this with folk’s.

    • Thanks for the video. I’ll study it carefully. Richard Charnin, aka TruthIsAll, has pretty much made the case for the electoral magic of the Clinton wins. These people are a one trick pony but it’s one Hell of a trick.

      • Here is another good conversation while on the topic of the two party illusion.

        Mar 2, 2014 Jeremy Scahill: The One Party State, The War Party

        Is the United States of America an Oligarchy? During the 2014 ISFLC, Jeremy Scahill speaks on the fact that in today’s world behemoth corporations are able to buy off politicians and pull the strings to impact legislature. Washington, D.C. is a town that operates by campaign contributions and legal bribery in the form of campaign finance. What can the American people do to get their political representatives to represent them as opposed to the mega corporations. When will the people’s voice be heard?
