Mike Malloy Doesn't Understand Why People Dislike Hillary Clinton

Mike Malloy is a guy I once respected when it came to independent voices in the media. Then Billary 2016 happened and he joined the bandwagon of bashing Sanders supporters and third party voters. And he's still doing it now, as you can see here.

Okay, Mike. You say you don't understand why people hate Billary so much. And yes, in some cases, especially among Repigs, it really does come down to having a (D) next to her name and being a woman. But perhaps you should listen to Kathy, your wife, more often.

Here's a simple list of reasons why many people hate Queen Billary:

1. "Single Payer Will Never, Ever, Happen!"

2. "Hard working Americans. White Americans."

3. "We have to bring the superpreadators to heel."

4. Her invoking of PUMA and the assassination of RFK as excuses for staying in the '08 primary for as long as she did.

5. Use of anti-POC and anti-Islamic rhetoric against Barack Obama in said primaries. Also starting the Birther movement.

6. Her support for continued war-mongering as a senator and as SOS.

7. Participating in corporate coups and assassinations of labor and environmental activists in Central and South America as SOS.

8. Subverting the democratic process by taking control of the Democratic Party in 2015 before a single primary vote was cast. Also setting up Paper Tiger challengers in an attempt to make the coronation look legit. Also blatant rigging against Sanders. Bernie would have won.

9. The destruction of Lybia leading to a renewed slave and human trafficking trade in that country.

10. Wall Street speeches.

11. Defending a known rapist using tactics one would expect from 'A Voice for Men'.

So there you have it. A simple list of reasons why people hate Billary.

See ya around,

Aspie

I listened to and loved Mike for years. It just so happened that he went off the air at just about the same time that he started advocating voting for HRC. I assumed with the election over that he had come back to his senses. I was going to pay to get his podcast, but thanks to this post I can save my money and just enjoy silence when in the car.
I like your list. Especially 7,9, and 10.
re 7, when I think of Berta Caceras lying in her grave while HRC is spoken of respectfully by ANYONE, it just makes me burn.
And to expand on point 10- HRC didn't just get rich off of her Wall St speeches, she practically reinvented how to accept bribes. What a deceitfully clever way to get bribes- show up at an event, prattle on senselessly for an hour, get a nice free meal out of the deal and walk out with a suitcase of cash. Is Mike going to try convince me that HRC, who could not fill auditoriums during her presidential run, is such a compelling speaker that her speeches were worth 250-400,000$???? Hey Mike, the value of her speech wasn't the content, it was access to her.

When they first came out on cassette tapes, my doctors who commuted 150 miles a day would rent them and then let me listen to them. When iPods came on the market in 2005 I joined Audible which costs $23/month for two books. Most books cost over $30-40 each from iTunes and other websites so that is a great deal. I have over 700 books and I've listened to them more than once.

I listen to them on my daily walks, when I'm doing something around the house or driving. I recently listened to V for Vendetta again. Great book.

I used to listen to Rachel and Keith on podcasts until they lost their minds and Democracy Now until Amy lost hers because of the Russian plot to take over the country and the world.

@snoopydawg Yes, I listen to audio books on some long road trips. But I find silence quite comforting these days. Mike, in the old days was quite enjoyable. Not anymore. So sad that so many of these "talkers" have turned mad. Mike, Rachel, Keith, Tom H., etc.
I thought when I turned off my TV 15 years ago that I might miss it. I have been about 1.5 years not listening to the radio very much now either. Things make a lot more sense now......

Have you thought about listening to audio books?

When they first came out on cassette tapes, my doctors who commuted 150 miles a day would rent them and then let me listen to them. When iPods came on the market in 2005 I joined Audible which costs $23/month for two books. Most books cost over $30-40 each from iTunes and other websites so that is a great deal. I have over 700 books and I've listened to them more than once.

As one whose reading habits bend towards the classics, I find that getting free audio books from Libri/Vox to be the best deal of all! All kinds of things from the Vedas and the Bhagavad-Gita to the Bible to Le Morte d'Arthur!

I suggest you check it out!

My online library has audio books and I've gotten quite a few from there. I can look at a book and check audible for the reviews. I've gotten so many that I haven't used my audible credits and I can only have 12 at once. My uncle pays for audible for me because when he got his iPod, I gave him hundreds of mine. The great thing about audible is that if I don't like the book I can return it, no questions asked.

I've gotten very critical with how people write about narration. The "He said, she said, gets old quick. I've listened to a few that have a great way to write it, or not say who is speaking at all and I still know who's talking.

Mike, listen to your wife. Everything she said about Herheinous is plain to see. Mike, your wife just told you what you are refusing to see.

What she's been through is from her own making. Those 25 years is what she's talking about. The Clintons brought all that on themselves. Did Hillary have to use her private email server? Nope. Give speeches to the banks? Nope. Use her position as SOS to build up Her fraudantion? Nope. Push to kick millions of women and children off welfare? Nope. Create the private prison system? Nope. Do.....? Nope.

Head fuck? Yep. Good word.

Hillary only was able to run against Trump because she stole the primary from Bernie. If she hadn't done that, Trump would not be the f'ng president, you twit!

Let's send him this essay after everyone lists why they feel the way they do.

She dislikes Hillary but has no specifics.

Q: "What wars has she started?"
A: "Well, she hasn't started any but..."

Wait what? She hasn't started any? I'm hardly the most well-informed person regarding this shit but I'm willing to lay Libya at her feet with specifics including specific lies. Kathy is nothing but a shill (or, I suppose, an idiot).

I also love Mike who thought Hillary being rude was meaningless. I'd beg to disagree. I think how a person treats those around them is a HUGE data point when proposing to give a lot of power to that person. What I see is two idiots. Neither understands the position they are espousing or the facts underlying their position. One likes Sanders. The other likes Hillary.... for reasons.

Just a narrow chapter in Herheinous' long life? Oh come on Mike! It was the columniation of the crap she did during her 25 odd years of being a political hack! If you really think that everything that her and Bill did was for the good of the country, you're dumber than... I can't come up with the right word, but you are being willfully blind to what the Creature has done. Just like the people who continue to support her.

BTW, a person from SNL got a tattoo of her on his leg. How creepy is that? He's 24 years old and I'm thinking in just a few years he's going to regret this. It's about 4-6 inches on the front of his leg.

The Queen of Inequality and her Princess visited my state on the same day as the U.N. monitor who came to bear witness down in Los Angeles. The Ds cannot have less clue, they are the bottom of the rotten stinking barrel of corruption in my view. They stink bigly, as bad as ever.

U.N. monitor says L.A. lags behind other cities in attacking homelessness

“But we don’t want to put the money into it,” special rapporteur Philip Alston, just off a two-week fact finding tour that included downtown L.A.’s skid row, said at a Washington, D.C., news conference. “We want to see homeless people as losers, a low form of life.”

Low forms of life, D-Valued. "That's the system." "We're capitalists." On the same day December 15th, Her Heinous made an appearance before 10,000 girls, showing off her shallow thoughtlessness. Leadership.

From Hillary Clinton and Kamala Harris to 10,000 teenage girls: 'Speak up'

Girls Build is a program of the nonprofit L.A. Promise Fund, which aims to help students throughout L.A. County reach academic, personal and professional success. Both Harris and Clinton encouraged the young women to find issues they are passionate about and be active in changing what they don’t like about the world. But they had some more specific advice, too:

[...]

1. Be more prepared than everyone else
2. Don't run from challenges but do ask for help
3. Try alternate nostril breathing.

As the world burns.

when she bold face lied to the audience at a town hall and claimed she had "permission" from the State Dept to run her emails through an outside server. I knew it was a lie. And it was pivotal for me because I realized that if she became the nominee that I would be in a pickle because I could never vote for her. Now I am at the point where just the sight of her nauseates me. I don't like being lied to and treated like I'm some some dumb person that she or anyone like her thinks they can manipulate.
Other than that, she's a Bibi Netanyahu hugging war starting Berta Caceres killing thug.

Hey! my dear friends or soon-to-be's, JtC could use the donations to keep this site functioning for those of us who can still see the life preserver or flotsam in the water.

FIVE, count 'em, FIVE WHOLE COUNTRIES destabilized, not to say destroyed, during her term as SoS. Honduras. Haiti. Libya. Syria. The Ukraine. So maybe other people were involved, France in Libya, KSA in Syria, and so on, but if the USA had said stop, we're not behind this, the others would have stopped. Don't forget, in Ukraine, the elected president had to flee for his life while we, that would be an official of Hillary's OWN State Dept., put a gangster in his place.

Then there is the fact that this woman is terminally incompetent. Over and over again, she is given adult level jobs and responsibilities and over and over again she blows them. Remember How many Rhodes Scholars does it take to screw up a health care proposal? We may not like Obamacare, but Obama got SOMETHING done on health care. Oh, OK, I guess she did manage to win Senate campaigns in New York State, with plenty of NYC money and behind the scenes assistance, and then went on to what was perhaps the most undistinguished senate career in modern times. And on that basis, she is qualified to be president?????

If you can't stand the Orange Narcissist, consider that this election was winnable and your gal blew it. The problem with conspiring to steal an election is that you can't always count on the other side being nice, honorable guys like Bernie. Sometimes the other side is just as corrupt and determined as you are and competent as well.

You don't have to be a Right Wing fanatic to still care about the principle of Rule of Law and to not want to see a corrupt patronage scheme put in its place.

I had a very interesting conversation yesterday afternoon with a neighbor whom I truly love and admire while at another neighbor's Christmas open house. She knows how far left I am and has supported me as such. She is very intelligent and well educated, and is one of the few people with whom I am comfortable talking politics.

She brought up how she could still not understand how people supported Trump over Clinton. I said I understood it very well. With the lack of a main stream media to give us honest information on the issues that actually affect our lives, most people are simply trying to keep their heads above water rather than spend their precious time trying to research the issues. I told her that, in my opinion, Trump was better able to connect with working people despite his being a billionaire because he spoke to them in the vernacular language that they could identify with. She then had to agree with me.

I also told her, much to her surprise, that I did not vote for Clinton or Trump, but voted for Jill Stein instead. I told her that after spending four and a half years with a Peace vigil, I could not vote for anyone who is a hawkish as Clinton, with Libya being the final straw for me. I avoided the long list of other things that disqualified Clinton for me, but in that moment, my neighbor may have realized that there are many people like me that despite Trump's odiosness (is that a word?), who simply could not vote for Clinton.

@gulfgal98 I tried explaining it to my mom and her bf but I don't think they give a shit. You can't talk to people who insist on staying on the political football field in spite of the fact that the team owners already fixed the game well in advance.

These are people who believe that if wages go up even one lousy penny that workers will be priced out of everything in spite of the fact that wages have been stagnant for decades and the working and middle classes have literally been cannibalized by the greedy fucks who own our government.
