Sophia Tesfaye — Ron Paul Suggests Support for Jill Stein, Admits He Is 'Disappointed' by Gary Johnson


As you may have noticed, I'm staying away from politics here lately since everyone seems to have had enough it, but this is a shocker I couldn't resist.
“She’s probably the best on foreign policy at the moment,” Paul said of the Green Party nominee on Monday.

How do you stay away from politics?

I have not been posting the latest on the election since I assume that the people who want to pay close attention are doing so. From what I gather a lot of people, including me, have had it up to the ears with moronism.

Guccifer2.0 are Russians though.

Clinton and the Dems are denying its their info.

They already headed this off previously by saying that makeup information would be released.

Without an investigation, we'll never know and there will be no investigation. Wouldn't matter if there were. Look at what happened with the FBI investigation. "Mistakes were made."

Ryan Harris said...

Within minutes of the release they were claiming it was a hoax, unlikely, it would take hours to go through all this stuff. And it's really specific information. Like their staff health care policies and travel forms, this is NOT A HOAX.

The stuff about Tarp released initually was misunderstood, it was actually an attempt to avoid appearing as payforplay by distancing themselves from those recipients.

I've got the files on my desktop, a gigabyte, a decades worth of office documents and campaign, foundation organization work. The lists of names and addresses look pretty real and dollar amounts and favors... if it's fake, its the most complicated conspiracy ever created. Names, address phone numbers of real people. If this gets swept under the rug, I'll join the conspiracy theory folks that think the election is a sham. Media want a smoking gun that draws all the conclusions and plot for them. This isn't a story laid it, this is just the contents of the clinton foundation server: Some good, some bad, some very ugly. Surely there is enough here to indict for corruption...

The Clinton campaign's m.o. is to instantaneously get ahead of the news cycle with a denial and to attribution of blame. "Putin did it." This is also the m.o. of the US government.

Whenever something like this is released instantaneously, it's a tell. The presstitutes pick it up and it reverberates through the echo chamber. Another case of propaganda to dupe the rubes.

Ryan Harris said...

Mostly mundane and boring on the surface, what you'd expect to see in a campaign. It would take someone with alot of detailed knowledge to figure out what is relevant. Being a shared server workspace, I doubt anything too sensitive is here but there is alot of stuff, so if someone understands details about the foundation, donors and campaign, this could really help to connect the dots and complete a story. Actually Feel bad for some of these Dem Party Staffer people, their paychecks and other personal info is exposed.

Okay, you've avoided US politics. Bless you.

The news media is the most effective part of the Clinton campaign. The way they are reporting is a disgrace.

He's probably disappointed that Johnson isn't going all around promoting a return to the metals...

Steve Keen's new article in Forbes is pretty good, imo. Gives a sense of how the Sun sets on MMT.

The news media is the most effective part of the Clinton campaign. The way they are reporting is a disgrace.

First, the media gave the GOP nomination to Trump with all the free PR. They also shut Bernie out until late in the campaign and never payed any attention to the third party candidates. Now the media is bending over backward to elect Clinton.

This is a "free press." Gives new meaning to the phrase. In a liberal democracy, press freedom is to inform voters on the issues and the candidates rather than promote candidates. But the US is not a liberal democracy but a plutocratic republic ruled by an oligarchy of power seeming from status and wealth.

Matt Franko said...

Theyre just biased towards the Democrat side Tom...

Theyre free to be biased....

Not my take, Matt. Too many traditionally GOP papers are on board with "never Trump." This appears to be the bipartisan establishment gaming up on anti-establishment candidates, Bernie and Trump.

Hillary actually changed her strategy to make it work. She is only attacking Trump and leaving the down ticket alone. Many Democrats are furious about it.
