Take Your Medicine

​CNN calling for Trump to “heal” the country. He won an election. He didn’t control the largest military in world history, hold huge executive power, decide the direction of the economy and speak to a confused and sometimes scared nation for 8 years.

“He has to earn our respect”. Fine. But you had 8 years in charge and the country lost respect you for and kicked you to the curb.
Take your medicine and try some self reflection. The buzz words and labeling of anyone who disagrees with you is old. Bring back actual discussion. Back up your ideas. Stop with the SJW crap. Where are the principled lefties from the Bush era?
More Glenn Greenwald and that crazy English guy. Less Young Turks & MSNBC. Or you’ll get more Donald Trump & Alt-Right, and less “socially liberal/fiscally conservative”.

Some People are Actually Excited about Hillary 2016

A little satire from Glenn Greenwald:

“It’s easy to strike a pose of cynicism when contemplating Hillary Clinton’s inevitable (and terribly imminent) presidential campaign. As a drearily soulless, principle-free, power-hungry veteran of DC’s game of thrones, she’s about as banal of an American politician as it gets. One of the few unique aspects to her, perhaps the only one, is how the genuinely inspiring gender milestone of her election will (following the Obama model) be exploited to obscure her primary role as guardian of the status quo.”

The Two Billionaires That Will Pick The 2016 Nominees. And Neither Cares About What Americans Want.

The billionaire political kingmakers planning to bankroll much of the 2016 presidential campaign spoke out together Sunday with blunt warnings on key issues for their respective parties.

Haim Saban, a media mogul and close Democratic ally of Hillary Rodham Clinton, criticized President Obama’s outreach to Iran, declaring that “we’ve shown too many carrots and a very small stick.”

Sheldon Adelson, a casino magnate who is likely to tap into his fortune in an effort to elect a Republican to the White House, upbraided many in the GOP for their opposition to legalizing millions of undocumented immigrants. Without a comprehensive overhaul, he said, the country would not be “the America that I’m proud to live in.”

Adelson, 81, and Saban, 70, have gained enormous political power in the new era of super PACs and unlimited contributions, and both made it clear during a rare joint appearance Sunday before an audience of several hundred Israeli Americans that they intend to assert that power during the next presidential campaign and beyond with policy demands for their candidates. In particular, they vowed to press both sides for a more hawkish approach to the Middle East.

Only 1/3 of Eligible American Voters Voted on Tuesday

Lew Rockwell:“Two-thirds of the people eligible to vote didn’t. Since only 1/3 of the people voted for the regime, shouldn’t it be democratically dissolved? And notice that we have to go to Al Jazzeera to get the truth. The cheerleading State media of the US are silent.”
