US Major Media Freaking Out As Voters Ignore Them

The New York Times – Breaking News, World News & Multimedia

We see from the NYT headlines that Hillary was perfect in the last ‘debate’ and Sanders was defeated by her shining superiority.  Ditto, the Washington Post which had its stable of violent, fanatical, Zionist commentators hissing and spitting at two targets, both Sanders and above all, Trump.  The debate format hasn’t worked like it was supposed: it was designed to be a question/answer thing run entirely by the media corporate owners.  But they forgot that real people running for office have to talk directly to voters!  This is where both leaders in this primary, Sanders and Trump, are most effective.

 

Hillary is now boasting that she has the same number of delegates as Sanders.  Sanders’ delegates were collected via voting.  Her advantage was through flipping a coin and her pre-selected delegates that are all elitists.  The NYT and Washington Post cannot understand this and continue flailing away at the leaders in the polls who are not pols the rich want.

The WP is in full mad attack mode. It is pathetic reading their headlines gives one a headache.  Is U.S. ‘presidentialist’ democracy failing? – The Washington Post

 

 Perplexed by today’s turbulent American political scene? Not to worry: A distinguished political scientist wrote an essay 26 years ago that anticipated our predicament with eerie explanatory power. The only downside is that its author specialized in the causes of democratic collapse.

 

“The Perils of Presidentialism,” by Yale University’s Juan J. Linz, compared the Westminster-style parliamentary system with “presidentialist” systems that divide executive and legislative power between separately elected presidents and assemblies. The former, he concluded, were inherently more stable than the latter.

 

Boo.  Bad democracy that lets popular people win!  The elites love the EU system where voting is meaningless while the elites rule via fiat.  The founders of the US system knew very well how the British parliament was run and this is why they revolted!  DUH.  They wanted a separation of powers so no one could rule via fiat.

 

Each branch was to mainly oppose the two others.  It doesn’t work well enough but fixing it by imitating the worse EU systems is stupid.  That certainly is working poorly right now!  The EU might even cease to exist in the not-too-distant future.  ‘End of Europe’: Trump slams Merkel’s refugee policy, wants good relations with Russia — RT News.  If true, bravo, Trump who is more liberal than Sanders and Clinton on this issue.

 

Jeb Bush is not dead – The Washington Post‘s editorial guys claim.  Dracula lives!  The authors of this story should be condemned to live on Jupiter Island, the Bush compound in Florida, as a servant for life.

 

The utter ugliness of Donald Trump’s campaign should scare us all – The Washington Post staff at it again.  They should be all condemned to work for life as slaves in his New Jersey casino.  That IS hell on earth.

 

New York Today: How to Beat the Cold: I have to include this.  The high today will be below 10 degrees F and it is going to nearly -20F tonight on my mountain.  Time for all candidates to discuss global warming while wearing swim suits in Rochester, NY.

    Contrary to headlines….

    Who won the sixth Democratic debate? Hundreds of thousands of people voted online, and an overwhelming majority declared Bernie Sanders the top-performer.

    Re trump’/sanders , these public expressions of dissent just serve to blow off steam. Heads must roll.

    “Liberal Intolerance is on the rise on college campuses.” So says the media wh#re Catherine Rampbell of the WP. They are STILL using the word “Liberal” to smear somebody! I guess it did work for a long time but now? It’s really amazing, imho, how just one word, “Liberal” can trigger an immediate and negative response from so many people!
    This technique is a key to propaganda. Smear and discredit someone with a label, in this case the word is “liberal”. That way, people pay no attention to someone because s/he is a liberal. Liberal=instant dislike. This technique works. When I was a braindead, brainwashed Republican, it worked on me.
    Ignatius and Krsuthammer are as bad or worse than Rampbell. Krauthammer should have an AIPAC tattoo on his forehead. I wonder if it ever bothers these “commentators” that they only write what they are told to and that, essentially, they are paid to LIE. Personally, I think these media wh#res lie AND they KNOW they are lying. I might have a shred of respect for them if I thought they sincerely believed the crud they wrote.

    The Washington post is a liberal newspaper. OOPS. I said liberal.

    If you haven’t, after age 30–about four major election cycles–figured out that your vote does not count for anything, then you may be a fool, or complicit in the criminality.

    The Washington Post was a newspaper of the highest integrity in the past.

    Today it is just another advocate of endless imperial war.

    Washington Post -EMS has noted that it ‘is a CIA front.’

    Trump and Sanders as are both controlled opposition. They’ve tailored their messages to the GOP’s and Democrats’ lowest common denominators. Sanders rides a Skittles-sh!ting unicorn and Trump spouts anti-oligarchy rhetoric as if he isn’t one of them. But a Kardashian-addled electorate mired in economic malaise is clueless and desperate enough to not care.

    Say what you will about Ron and Rand Paul, but at least they sincerely want to put the banksters out of business. That’s why the leftist media disappears them.

    The Washington Post is the media of choice for the Beltway crowd. The Lobbyists, Thinktankland, the Billionaire Oligarchs and the sleaziest wh#res in the Universe, the (s)elected folks in Congress and The White House. The WP is a propaganda rag and THEY KNOW IT. The Guiding Principle is, “Those who control the media control policy.” This is why the Billionaire Oligarchs first sought to control the media–which they did starting in the 1980’s and completed under Clinton. Only 6 companies control almost 96% of the media in the US. The Washington Post and the New York Times could lose 90% of their readership and still remain in business. They are a big part of the propaganda arm of the elites.

    The ‘Clinton Bubble’: How Clinton Democrats Fostered the 2008 Economic Crisis
    By Robert Scheer

    Since the collapse happened on the watch of President George W. Bush at the end of two full terms in office, many in the Democratic Party were only too eager to blame his administration. Yet while Bush did nothing to remedy the problem, and his response was to simply reward the culprits, the roots of this disaster go back much further, to the free-market propaganda of the Reagan years and, most damagingly, to the bipartisan deregulation of the banking industry undertaken with the full support of “liberal” President Clinton. Yes, Clinton. And if this debacle needs a name, it should most properly be called “the Clinton bubble,” as difficult as it may be to accept for those of us who voted for him.

    Clinton, being a smart person and an astute politician, did not use old ideological arguments to do away with New Deal restrictions on the banking system, which had been in place ever since the Great Depression threatened the survival of capitalism. His were the words of technocrats, arguing that modern technology, globalization, and the increased sophistication of traders meant the old concerns and restrictions were outdated. By “modernizing” the economy, so the promise went, we would free powerful creative energies and create new wealth for a broad spectrum of Americans—not to mention boosting the Democratic Party enormously, both politically and financially.

    And it worked: Traditional banks freed by the dissolution of New Deal regulations became much more aggressive in investing deposits, snapping up financial services companies in a binge of acquisitions. These giant conglomerates then bet long on a broad and limitless expansion of the economy, making credit easy and driving up the stock and real estate markets to unseen heights. Increasingly complicated yet wildly profitable securities—especially so-called over-the-counter derivatives (OTC), which, as their name suggests, are financial instruments derived from other assets or products—proved irresistible to global investors, even though few really understood what they were buying. Those transactions in suspect derivatives were negotiated in markets that had been freed from the obligations of government regulation and would grow in the year 2009 to more than $600 trillion…

    Clinton betrayed the wisdom of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal reforms that capitalism needed to be saved from its own excess in order to survive, that the free market would remain free only if it was properly regulated in the public interest. The great and terrible irony of capitalism is that if left unfettered, it inexorably engineers its own demise, through either revolution or economic collapse. The guardians of capitalism’s survival are thus not the self-proclaimed free-marketers, who, in defiance of the pragmatic Adam Smith himself, want to chop away at all government restraints on corporate actions, but rather liberals, at least those in the mode of FDR, who seek to harness its awesome power while keeping its workings palatable to a civilized and progressive society.

    Government regulation of the market economy arose during the New Deal out of a desire to save capitalism rather than destroy it. Whether it was child labor in dark coal mines, the exploitation of racially segregated human beings to pick cotton, or the unfathomable devastation of the Great Depression, the brutal creativity of the pure profit motive has always posed a stark challenge to our belief that we are moral creatures. The modern bureaucratic governments of the developed world were built, unconsciously, as a bulwark, something big enough to occasionally stand up to the power of uncontrolled market forces…

    BOTH PARTIES wanted free trade, a trade deficit and overspending at home. BOTH.

    Our rulers are THE SAME PEOPLE with different names and a huge number are Skull and Bones magicians from Yale using black magic. Sheesh.

  12. Lou

    overspending at home.–uh, yes. BUT how much longer can Dow be 15000- 18300? How much longer will Belgium [haha, right] buy USA bonds?
