Recently I read that Sally Field is using adjectives like “brilliant” and “miraculous” to promote Hillary Clinton. The actor and I agree. War enthusiast HRC brilliantly and miraculously uses the vagina card to firmly hold onto mostly older female and male feminists. War orgasmic Clinton has brilliantly and miraculously convinced a significant number of voters that she’ll work on their behalf, not Wall Street’s.
Democrats are now the aggressive war party
But the larger picture for the Democrats is that they have just adopted an extraordinary historical reversal whether they understand it or not. They have replaced the Republicans as the party of aggressive war, though clearly many Republicans still dance to the neocon drummer just as Clinton and “liberal interventionists” do. Still, Donald Trump, for all his faults, has adopted a relatively peaceful point of view, especially in the Mideast and with Russia.
While today many Democrats are congratulating themselves for becoming the first major party to make a woman the presumptive nominee, they may soon have to decide whether that distinction justifies putting an aggressive war hawk in the White House. In a way, the issue is an old one for Democrats, whether “identity politics” or anti-war policies are more important.
How Clinton donor got on sensitive intelligence board
Newly released State Department emails help reveal how a major Clinton Foundation donor was placed on a sensitive government intelligence advisory board even though he had no obvious experience in the field, a decision that appeared to baffle the department’s professional staff.
The emails further reveal how, after inquiries from ABC News, the Clinton staff sought to “protect the name” of the Secretary, “stall” the ABC News reporter and ultimately accept the resignation of the donor just two days later.
Hillary’s victory and next to last hurrah
Everybody knew that the awful day would come when the Queen of Chaos, the Empress of Ineptitude, would become the Democratic Party’s “presumptive” nominee.
It did last Tuesday. Wall Streeters, Cold Warriors, “humanitarian” interveners, Zionist settler supporters, and other assorted miscreants can now rejoice!
Add to that list those who think that, at last, little girls can grow up thinking that the “glass ceiling” is gone – as if it wasn’t already by 1984, when Walter Mondale selected Geraldine Ferraro to run as his Vice President.
Even the most retrograde right-wingers understand this: how else to explain the Sarah Palin cult? It is only liberal ladies of a certain age that are married to their nonsense.
In truth, Hillary’s problem has never been that she is a woman; it is that she is the woman she is.
But compelling evidence and sound arguments are useless in the face of ideologically fixed ideas; and so, the Gloria Steinem types are happy too. However, for everyone whose moral compass is sound and whose head is screwed on right, this final “super Tuesday” was, and always will be, a day of infamy.
Take your unity, Democrats, and put where the sun don’t shine.
I guess I’ll pile on here. Lot’s of depressing reading in the wake of Clinton’s “victory” in California.

Beat you to the punch, Swede:
Perpetual war is the only thing left on the menu. Enjoy!
Thank-you, thank-you! You should know that the Democratic Party Caucus in the Flathead was contentious, but we sent 6 Hillary delegates and 8 Bernie delegates to Helena today. Some are also committed to getting the Green Party on the ballot because eating asphalt is not a favorable option.
There has been a great deal of coercion and emotional bullying around Hillary’s presumed coronation. It is almost as if we were living in some kind of banana republic. The hard sell to give the berniecrats a bums rush makes me very uncomfortable. The establishment Democrats are violatinng all kinds of boundaries and it is not consentual.
In the meantime, watch day two of the Democratic Party platform drafting committee here: http://www.c-span.org/video/?410835-1/democratic-platform-drafting-committee-holds-second-day-hearings Let me know if you find a record of day one or anything after day two.
“Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as is cooperation with good.”
What is the best advise to the abused in the face of repeated authoritarian acts of disrespect and/or denial of individual freedom? Everyone learns for themselves, and must choose the kind of world they want for their children. Democrats are again faced with important choices. One can only hope a great number of them will choose wisely.
