Schumer to Clinton: "Don’t Blame Russia, Blame Yourself”

Chuck Schumer had a public eleventh-hour epiphany:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sent a thinly veiled message to Hillary Clinton, saying that “you blame yourself” if you “lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity.” Schumer never explicitly mentioned Clinton but there was little doubt who he was talking about while discussing the broad effort by the Democratic Party to come up with a new messaging strategy ahead of next year’s midterm elections.

“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” Schumer said in an interview with the Washington Post.

American Arrogance is Based on Exceptional Ignorance

Working from the base of the brain stem, the tribal chant of we're number one is all it takes to convince most citizens the US is GREAT. A misleading and profit serving corporate media does its share to maintain the illusion. But what is so great about us? We certainly create great violence and mayhem around the world. We work hard to destroy nature in order to extract and pollute...and woe be unto the country that opposes our corporate misuse of people and planet...because we worship the God of profit.

According to top brass at NATO, latest Russian Sukhoi Su-35R is a complete failure

After viewing its performance at the MAKS 2017 Moscow Air Show the generals took note that the latest Russian fighter jet appears to be incapable of straight forward flight unlike the Lockheed Martin F-35. One general stated, "At 1/3rd the cost of the F-35, I suppose you get what you pay for. The Russians are obviously now so far behind they will never catch up to our advanced technological expertise."

"But What about ISIS"? or ALL WAR IS A LIE

Most of the left, not to mention the right, are falling again for the false narratives, lies and propaganda coming from our government, the Trump regime, and the oligarchy owned and controlled media regarding the supposed ceasefire in Syria, agreements with Russia and Trump's decisions and actions in "fighting terrorism".

No wonder the antiwar movement is almost dead during a period of unprecedented war.
