Fear the Bern

(Election 2016 Update III)

Exit polls revealed many democratic voters arrived at their polling places and immediately re-registered republican for 5 years in order to vote against Donald Trump. Such was their fear. Or was it a clever tactic by the right wing Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign, whose answer to the Bernie Sanders ‘yes we can’ insurgency is a hopeless, ‘no we can’t.’ In either case, it didn’t work.

The election and nominations are not yet a foregone conclusion, but the question still remains, ‘is the Donald Trump candidacy a ruse thought out by Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and other architects of a New American Century, meant to scare daylights out of democrats driving even progressives toward Hillary Rodham Clinton? If so, it is a ruse that has gotten way out of their control. ‘The Donald’ as it were, probably was all for team ball at the start- until the low IQ of dumbed-down America hoisted him up on their shoulders like Atahualpa. And once you taste the power of the throne, you never go back, even if back means being a reality show billionaire-on-paper.

And wither the idealistic Sanders campaign? Mostly dazed and confused this post-primary election Wednesday morning, as centrist democrats voted their fears and went with Monsanto lawyer, war monger, fracking and bank advocate Hillary Clinton. And don’t forget she brings back the cigar-wielding William Jefferson Clinton, and 30 years of entrenched quasi-right political machinery. Rest easy, America.

As sane people watch on in horror, biblical floods, storms, droughts, tornadoes, sea level rise, fracking-induced earthquakes have their way with the land sea and atmosphere with nary a United States Presidential candidate mentioning the environment as an issue except of course, Bernie Sanders and Green candidate Jill Stein. So the quandary before sane Americans is, what to do; where to go from here?’

That is where I may be of help.

1. Green Party: Stay the course and vote for one of our own qualified and altruistic candidates. Remember, the Greens have a huge advantage- our party is *international and *we don’t take corporate money.

2. Republicans: As ye sow, so shall ye reap. You created Donald Trump, and soon you may be licking his bootstraps in the latest version of 1939 National Socialism and then in hell forever after.

3. Progressive Democrats: Continue to feel the Bern. Full speed ahead and dam the torpedoes. The democrats will never change as long as they know you will still vote for them. Here is your chance to send them a message they will never forget- WRITE IN BERNIE SANDERS. If someone tells you about the ‘sore loser’ laws in some states where write ins won’t be counted, well who cares? It’s better than endorsing the oil-war, big pharma, log-the-last-forest status quo. Tell them to take their super delegates and shove them where the sun don’t shine.

4. Center-right Hillary Democrats: See #2.

PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY ELECTION 2016 UPDATE
by joey racano

Why do I get the feeling Karl Rove is the steering committee behind the Trump candidacy? Contrary to popular belief, Trump is not smart- he’s just from Brooklyn, where quick wit and fast comebacks are a way of life (believe me, I learned it growing up in East New York, in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn). It was very Rove-esque to attack the Pope just before heading into South Carolina, where they hate anything progressive.

That also reminds me that the Hillary Clinton campaign was shrewd enough to convince the African-American electorate there to vote against their own self-interests. But back to Trump; what do I think of Donald and his potential nomination? It scares the sh1t out of me, and should scare you as well. He makes no sense, he has no plan, he is downright psycho. But I do give him a bucket of red roses for being the first politician with the balls to call G.W. Bush out on his lies about Iraq. Too bad he didn’t go further; after all, Bush murdered 4500 US soldiers.

Hillary Clinton, by virtue (if it could be considered virtuous) of a SUPER PAC was able to squeak out a quasi-victory over Bernie Sanders in Nevada. In the long run, this is only going to hurt her, because she came out of it with half that states delegates, but has now provided proof-positive how corrupt the system is with which we nominate our candidates. Bernie did amazing things in Nevada without a SUPER PAC. Widely viewed by the new voting youth*** as cheating, the HRC SUPER PAC and the threat of using ‘SUPERDELEGATES’ to squash grass roots uprisings against the democratic party status quo has galvanized this new voting block. Look for Hillary to take a page out of the 2000 BUSH/GORE SELECTION and steal the nomination, then lose the general election. Bernie will continue on as a third party independant, and well he should. No progressive or lefty will ever vote for Hillary Clinton. Not one.

No time to discuss Cruz or Rubio, but if they show better in the future I will include them in the next report.

Jeb Bush:

Jeb Bush, despite having all the oil money in the world was DOA because of the American public’s lingering outrage of the Iraq invasion of 2003. For the new-age mystics out there, think of it this way; Jeb Bush is feeling the karma from his decision as Governor of Florida not to protect the Manatee. Many died from propellers to the face as people making up the Jeb Bush ‘base’ went speeding through the Floridian coastal waters in their long, expensive, fancy ‘Cigarette’ boats a la Miami Vice. Good riddance Jeb.
