CBS DEMOCRATIC DEBATE: Foreign Policy Suddenly Got A Lot More Important

I won’t lie, I had totally forgotten there was going to be a Democratic debate on Saturday.  In my mind, the biggest story of the weekend would be Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey being fed a new victim at UFC 193 and I was looking forward to a first-round victory via manslaughter.  That never happened, which came as a complete and utter shock to me and everyone else in the world with the possible exception of Holly Holm, who as the world’s best female boxer likely realized long before the rest of us that even a monster is vulnerable to being punched in the fucking face two-dozen times.  Shoulda touched those gloves, Ronda!

But Holm sending Rousey to the hospital to have her lip stitched back together obviously wasn’t the biggest news of the weekend, and neither was the CBS Democratic Debate.  It was Friday night when I first started hearing about trouble in Paris; a friend living there suddenly “checked in as safe” via Facebook and before I knew it I was seeing reports of a terror attack that left over a hundred dead, a number that seemed impossibly high (but later proved, sadly, to be true).Read the rest

CNBC Debate Part II: The Aftermath

I hadn’t planned on writing a follow-up to my previous piece on the CNBC Republican debate, considering the powerful emotional trauma it had caused within me.  Writing two articles for every debate is not something I’m willing to subject myself to.  Things are still tense down at the 7-11 — poor Chiaki, a pleasant young woman that works the register, still watches me with obvious fear whenever I browse the aisles, although her middle-aged co-worker smiles lasciviously and throws me a couple winks, making me wonder what horrible things I must’ve said to them while on that weekend bender.  Also I apparently started a secret handshake with the kindly, toothless old grandfather that spends most of his day getting drunk out front, which I believe is the primary cause for the eye-infection I’m currently battling. 

But while the debate itself was a goddamn joke, things have been happening since it aired; and given my horrible addiction, I must report those things.  Read the rest

Why the Mainstream Media Actually Loves Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton in Hampton, NH
Hillary Clinton was humiliated during her time in the white house. We all remember the day that Bill said those infamous words “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” After this, our pathetic, wimpy, puritanical society wanted Clinton impeached. Little did we know that Hillary was going to get the last laugh.

In a press release on Sunday, Hillary reportedly stated her desire to get Monica Lewinski to “suck her dick.” She stated that she was tired of hearing Bill talk in his sleep about “Mawwnica Louinskee, ohhhh Mawwnica.” This has affected the marriage of the Clinton’s, and Hillary feels that by getting her dick sucked, the process of healing will begin.

“I don’t think Bill will mind Monica Lewinski sucking on my thick, veiny, throbbing cock every now and then.” Hillary said to the press. “I imagine that it is quite stressful being the president, and I will make sure that Lewinski is by my side whenever I need a little stress relief.”

The reporters were understandably confused, and when asked if she had a penis, Hillary responded, “Well not really, but it’s bigger than Bill’s.… Read the rest

New Proof The Media Is Lying To You About Hillary’s Campaign

The Democratic presidential debate happened and, based on poll numbers, Bernie Sanders won the debate. According to CNN, Hillary won the debate. This may be confusing, considering every poll after the debate gave concrete numbers showing Bernie’s victory. But when it comes to the media, numbers don’t matter – when you can report revisionist history.

Who Really Won The Democratic Debate? It’s Complicated (Duh)

Pop quiz: who is Frank Luntz?  If you answered “someone who answered most of his phone calls in November of 2012 by first taking the gun out of his mouth,” you get half a point.  If you answered “someone sloppily sculpted from a wad of dough,” I’ll give you three points for being unnecessarily mean. But if you answered “one of several GOP pollsters responsible for the warped view of reality under which the 2012 Romney campaign was operating for the last legs of the 2012 presidential race,” then congratulations, you win! You’re a politics nerd! Either that or you’re actually Frank Luntz, in which case you should just navigate away from this page now because some people have already started drinking and they’re only gonna get meaner.


I mention Frank Luntz because he’s the guy who ran the Fox News focus group that examined the recent Democratic Party debate. This focus group came to the conclusion that, contrary to what the overwhelming majority of popular pundits reported, Bernie Sanders came out victorious over Party favorite Hillary Clinton.Read the rest

Behold The Vast Trump-Clinton Conspiracy Theory

Surely too good to be true, but Foreign Policy tries on a Hillary Clinton – Donald Trump conspiracy theory for size:

Earlier this month, U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, a Florida Republican, made a bold claim on Miami radio. He told host Roberto Rodríguez Tejera that Donald Trump, the Republican presidential candidate who’s currently laying waste to the field of primary challengers, could be in cahoots with Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton to undermine the GOP race.

“I think there’s a small possibility that this gentleman is a phantom candidate,” Curbelo said on July 10. “Mr. Trump has a close friendship with Bill and Hillary Clinton. They were at his last wedding. He has contributed to the Clintons’ foundation. He has contributed to Mrs. Clinton’s Senate campaigns. All of this is very suspicious.”

As it turns out, at least some of this is true. According to an article published Tuesday by PolitiFact Florida reporters at the Tampa Bay Times and Miami Herald, Hillary Clinton did attend Trump’s 2005 nuptials to Melania Knauss, who now uses the last name Trump.

Hedging on Wall Street: Clinton’s Finance Reforms Reek of Weak-Kneed Populism

As Bernie Sanders continues to draw record crowds and appears to be winning the battle for small-donor contributions, the campaign of Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton—even as the former senator and secretary of state attempts to strike a more populist tone—continues to show it knows where the deep pockets are: Wall Street.

And as the Associated Press reports on Wednesday morning, the campaign’s strategic approach is rather easily documented:

Clinton’s economic agenda targets companies that focus on short-term profits and high-speed trading instead of investing in workers. The Democratic presidential candidate’s finance operation is going after their executives for another purpose — donations.

A day after proposing higher capital gains taxes on short-term investors, Clinton raised at least $450,000 Tuesday night at the Chicago home of Raj Fernando, a longtime donor.

A Frightful Prospect: Hillary vs. Jeb

Andrew Levine via CounterPunch:

Around the world, elections happen; they are scheduled or called and then they are over and done with – all in short order. America is “exceptional.” Even before 2015’s April showers, 2016’s November election is taking shape.

The good news is that the first six months are usually low key. There is no reason to expect that this year will be different.

There is therefore plenty of time to stock up on anti-emetics. If, as seems likely, Hillary and Jeb become the candidates, the need for them will be acute.

There is time too to pray to a merciful God that we will not have to endure that nightmarish scenario, and that neither of those miscreants will ever see the inside of the Oval Office again.
