Plan B? Are the Clintons setting up a new party?

The article cited below is written from a business takeover specialist's viewpoint. The author says he was struck by Hillary's concession speech: the delay, the purple both Clinton's were wearing (the reason for the delay?), the Clinton need/desire for a new income source now that pay-to-play ("their main product feature") won't work any more, her Stronger Together theme, the Foundation already set up and pre-funded, her mention of a "representative democracy such as ours," rather than the representative republic that we actually are.

"Hint: Start a new movement with its own unique logo, branding, power structure, messaging, and funding all within your control, and startup takes little more than a flip-of-the-switch because seed funding is more or less already – in the bank. It’s absolutely brilliant from a business perspective.

Shed the colors of the “Blue” of the “Dems” and the “Red” of the “Repubs” into the new purple of “Stronger Together!” Hit up disgruntled Bernie Sanders followers with “We’re just as miffed as you! Donate now to the new cause!” “Why wait for another stolen democratic election! Fight now!! Send your donations to: ___________”"

He says to expect more organized Purple Protests and a campaign to end the electoral college, which would mean that winning just three big states, such as New York, California, and Texas, could control an election. Those of us in the Rust Belt, or the Flyover States, would no longer have even as little voice as we usually do now.

I'd never thought of that benefit of the electoral college before, but I do remember now that it and the Senate were set up to protect the interests of the smaller states that were reluctant to join a United States.

is afoot across the land. God help us all. Soros is funding coast-to-coast riots (a few paid actor "leaders", scattered around major cities and college campuses to stir up faux riots). Chelsea is married to Soros' failed hedge fund nephew, Marc Mezvesky (sp?). It's all in the family. The Clintons have stashed away the (stolen) ten BILLION dollars raised for Haiti earthquake relief (2010) under the auspices of the Clinton Foundation "charity". Yep, ten billion just disappeared! Maybe the money was sent in the mail along with Bill's laptop holding four years of Hill's emails that disappeared.

I can see why the Clintons want to disengage from the charred garbage heap that remains of the Democratic party, even though it is they who destroyed it. Greener pastures, folks. No Bernie Bros pointing fingers at "irregularities". Brilliant! A Bill $ Hill party with easily riled up feather-brained followers.

A lot of the protesting here in Seattle is driven by her Socialist Alternative group. Sawant is the only socialist in the country who has been reelected (city council). Kshama also endorsed Jill and was attempting to form an alliance with the Green Party. Right now, she has plastered all the telephone poles in my neighborhood with posters advertising a grassroots effort to build 1000 housing units for our exploding homeless population - a population driven here in part by the brutal economic conditions in so much of the country created by 40 years of neoliberal policies.

Plenty of us despise Trump without being in the Hillaroid camp. Sawant certainly is not.

extraordinarily good deal. Contrary to popular opinion, the homeless don't just disappear if you don't house them. They commit petty crimes to get "three hots and a cot" or end up in the ER. Salt Lake City found that they could house the homeless in one-bedroom apartments, including utilities and food and all necessities, for about $8000 per year; otherwise they cost much more. See:

Here is Kshama's proposal in the Seattle Times. The Socialist Sawant says:

Hundreds of constituents have called or emailed my office, saying that while they may or may not agree with me on other issues, they want to see these 1,000 homes built.

Maybe there is hope for this country after all.

If you have time, Brave New Films has others in the Overcriminalized series, including alternatives for drug addiction and mental illness, in other cities. They're each about 5 minutes long, maybe a little longer, none over 10 minutes IIRC. I find myself going back to them again and again in one discussion or another.

I say begone and don't let the door hit you in the ass. In the unlikely event that happened, it might be worth rejoining the Democratic Party after all. But it's not going to happen. They bought that party fair and square, and they're not going to just dump it.

Lots of this going on. IMO, you all might want to take it with a grain of salt Smile

That being said, I am way too tired to laugh this morning, but I can tell you, the very idea that ex-Democrats like me would sign up to a new Clinton-led party is LAUGHABLE. It would be the last party on Earth that I'd join, and all the other parties would have to be dead and buried before I'd even consider it. And even then, I'd pass...

My favorite one of these was an anecdote told of a page in a novel which had only the first line of a new paragraph on it, at the very end. It was supposed to read:

When it came time to eat, my little brother.....

but actually read:

When it came time to eat my little brother......

which, of course, profoundly changed the meaning -- and not for the better!

Why does she need a new one ?

The author talks about the concession speech being very calculated etc. Everything the woman ever did was calculated. That's because every time she does something from the heart (DOMA, TPP, Fracking, bombing etc), it doesn't poll well. I think, hope and pray HRC is done running for office. She's getting old to run for Prez again and any other office is beneath her. It's time to launch the "Hillary Home Collection" of gold leaf champagne glasses and matching hors doeuvre plates - or whatever.

The night she was nominated, she wore a bridal white pantsuit, like the bride of America. She had on another white pantsuit the night of the election. The morning of her concession speech, however, she dressed in mourning, with Bill coordinating. It may be that they intend to launch something, but this was about mourning. Maybe as the widow of American, slain by Trump's victory.

Please see the images at the end of this blog entry: http://caucus99percent.com/content/theory-conspiracy-theory-or-healthy-c...
I know the sartorial mourning reference was intended because I heard two talking heads on MSNBC mention it on two different shows, so I imagine someone close to Hillary pointed it out to them. Additionally, the day Trump went to the White House, Obama's staffers were all dressed in black (or black and blue) and posed for a photo outside on the steps of the White House, which also found its way to MSNBC. This is a different photo than the one I saw on MSNBC, but was taken the same day and conveys the same message:

Everything seems to me designed to spur the demonstrations and rioting that ensued, nothing more than MSNBC's rhetoric.

http://caucus99percent.com/content/msnbcs-self-styled-liberals-sounding-...

Yet, all we hear is how gracious Hillary and Obama were to Trump. Didn't hear gracious in her speech or anything Obama said, though. Heard some gracious from Trump.

I could not find the photo of that, which MSNBC showed. That they were black the day Trump was there is the point. I didn't say anyone in any photo was looking at Trump.
