Bannon is a Triple Changer Transformer!

Trumpers are terrible people. They support a terrorist political party called The Republicans.

Trump a Plant?

Summary of Morning Joe by TVeyes

— Speculation into the possibility of Donald Trump running as a third party candidate. John Heilemann comments saying as it looks right now, Trump would get about 20 percent of the vote if he ran against HRC and Jeb Bush, and almost all of the support would come out of Jeb’s base, thus guaranteeing the victory of HRC. Notes that some people say Donald Trump was a longtime supporter of HRC and donated to her, thus suggesting that he’s a plant to ensure her election. Morning Joe

Clinton Lied But No Consequence. It’s Like It’s the 1990s Still

“Here, for the record, is Clinton saying, on March 10, 2015, “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email.””

I’m particularly offended by this oligarchy-outcome because Clinton is guilty of doing what she persecutes American hero Ed Snowden for doing – “mishandling classified information”. Yet he lives in exile in Russia, and she’ll run the whole darn United States of America. Snowden tried to do the right thing and tell Americans of secret crimes against them, and Clinton tried to do the wrong thing (hide her emails from public scrutiny while she was supposed to be a transparent public servant). She’s rich and powerful, and he was with no influence; The Rule of Law is not well in the USA.

By ignoring the damning information uncovered by the FBI — that Clinton’s elaborate system for avoiding the requirement that public servants should make their official correspondence available in public archives had exposed dozens of messages containing secret information to potential interception — the candidate clearly hoped to put the matter behind her.

While that satisfied many of her supporters — and predictably angered most of her detractors — treating the FBI director’s conclusion of “not criminal” as a seal of approval seemed to leave many Americans feeling queasy, and others wondering if the laws on mishandling classified information just do not apply to those in power.

Clinton = #FBImWithHer
Does that mean Trump is better? Heck no. I don’t envy American voters who can’t fight their corrupt media/government/justice systems. They are desperate, with good reason, to stop Trump. Sanders so far hasn’t made a big deal of Clinton’s email scandal, he dismissed it during a debate, in an apparent effort to prevent it from becoming a sideshow that could hurt the Democrats he at that time hoped still to lead.

Why Did Obama Kill the #KXL Pipeline?

Everything in this article isn’t perfect, but these parts are:

Alberta’s problem is twofold: Its oilsands have been buried by fracked American oil that is both higher-value and cheaper to produce, while longer-term they face marginalization in a world committed to weaning itself off carbon.

So another pipeline isn’t needed; oilsands production won’t be expanding much in the foreseeable future, if it all. Alberta needs to figure out how to make the most of the infrastructure it has in place. Money spent on a pipeline right now would be money wasted. But Notley can’t say that aloud — not while also delivering the bad news on her province’s finances and fighting back against the implications of the so-called Leap Manifesto.

&

“As long as I’m president of the United States,” Obama said as he officially pulled the plug on Keystone XL, “America is going to hold ourselves to the same high standards to which we hold the rest of the world.” Now, if Obama really wanted to have an impact on carbon emissions, he would have shut down the 500,000 barrels per day of California heavy crude — which is ‘dirtier’ than oilsands bitumen. He didn’t; he didn’t even mention it.

Assange Illegally Detained by UK Police

Sanders Backs Up Clinton, Gets Back Stabbed By DNC

One of the notable moments of the Democratic Debate on CNN weeks ago was when Bernie Sanders bluntly said he was sick and tired of hearing about Hillary Clinton’s emails. Clinton infamously used personal email for government business, which is illegal. Sanders took the high road and refused to pillory her.

The Democratic Party is now locking Sanders out of their voter contact database after an apparent breach of Clinton’s voter contact information by Sanders’ campaign. It’s completely hypocritical of the party to favour Clinton after her illegal use of government computer communication, and punish Sanders for what could be a lower level volunteer’s misuse of a DNC system.

Sanders clearly places the bulk of the blame on the Democratic Party that wants to ordain Clinton.

Bernie Sanders: Australian Perspective

Here’s a facebook comment from Australia I enjoyed.

Aleta Langdon:

A POLITICAL TIP FROM AUSTRALIA: The Republicans, Fox and Rupert Murdoch want Hillary to win the nomination so that they can crucify her in the Presidentials. (So much history, so much scandal, so many unanswered questions, so much to criticise,) They DO NOT want to face Bernie in the Presidentials because they know, when Bernie talks, people listen – REALLY listen. They know that Bernie will annihilate them in the Presidentals. He can’t be bought, he can’t be intimidated, he can’t be tamed by corporate America and he can’t be silenced. He has all the momentum now and is gaining momentum exponentially. There are people following him from all over the world, and millions more will follow him in the lead up to him taking the White House. Bernie is a once-in-a-generation WORLD leader. Be prepared for FOX and Murdoch to wage a vicious campaign depicting him as a radical who will destroy your country.

Murdoch destroyed our Australian Democratic Prime-Minister and Treasurer even though they guided us through the Global Financial Crisis with a triple-A credit rating from the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, we avoided a recession (GFC? What GFC?) and our Treasurer Wayne Swan was awarded “World’s Best Treasurer” at a ceremony in Washington in 2011. At the same time Murdoch waged a media war in Australia and tore them down with a relentless “ECONOMIC IRRESPONSIBILITY” campaign. SERIOUS! Be prepared to fight and spread the word. I cannot emphasise how destructive they will be. Rupert Murdoch will NOT want Bernie to get to the Presidentials, because someone like Bernie – who is not at all enamoured by obscene wealth – scares Rupert Murdoch to death. Rupert Murdoch – the man who relinquished his Australian citizenship to become an American, for the sole purpose of making BILLIONS OF DOLLARS. So please do everything that you can to help him win. Bernie fights for you, please fight for him. Please repost on your timelines.

With you, in the struggle, Aleta Langdon. Australia.

Bernie notes the USA has more people in jail than Communist, authoritarian China. It wastes human life, and money.
