Democrat Elites Display Their Ugly Arrogance

A couple of good rants here from the Jimmy Dore show that illustrates the surreal arrogance of the top "Democrat" Elites, and their determination to hide and cover up the fact that it is their own (willfully corrupt) Policies, craven dishonesty, and non-performance that have driven away the American Public (voters) by the the point where the entire D-Party is now just a collapsed, aimless wasteland.

Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity ask a War Criminal to not go to War with Russia

A group calling themselves the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) has written a "memo" to Empire in Chief Obama, just like they did to war criminal George W. Bush in the earlier part of the century.

Have We Forgotten What Bernie Sanders Taught Us?

I have been a supporter of Bernie Sanders for years. He and I are of an age. I was thrilled when he started up a revolution of positive change. Take a close look at the word positive. One of the definitions of positive from Merriam-Webster is " indicating, relating to, or characterized by affirmation, addition, inclusion, or presence rather than negation, withholding, or absence ." It is change we can believe in.

The differences between SoS Clinton and SoS Kerry

President Obama foreign policy record has not been one of consistency. It has fluctuated, and that fluctuation seems to mirror who is working as point-man (i.e. Secretary of State) at the time.
Hillary Clinton had the office from January 2009 to January 2013. John Kerry has been there since.

Let's look at U.S. foreign policy during this era.


Why President Obama's drone assassination program must be made accountable

This is an article that I wrote back in 2012 that in light of The Intercept's recent articles seems worth revisiting.

It's 2020, and unless Mr. Obama has successfully declared himself President-for-life, somebody else is President. Perhaps this time the lesser evil has lost. Thanks to the groundwork laid by President Obama and the boys at DARPA, the new president has the sort of technology that dystopian fiction is based upon.

In 2020 the president has at his disposal the drone technology to surveil anyone, anywhere on earth. The technology has the visual resolution to see disturbed dirt from a mile high in the sky and track footprints, to identify individuals using biometric data, even to "see" through walls and ceilings. Drones will also be outfitted with the means to collect electronic communications, phone calls, texts, gps location data, etc., creating a tool that can track individuals in the physical realm as well as their "footprints" in cyberspace to deliver the information needed for lethal actions

In 2020 the Earth will be surrounded by a triple canopy of drones at various heights to surveil us and deliver sudden death and destruction from above, wherever on earth or space the president desires:

At the lowest tier of this emerging U.S. aerospace shield, within striking distance of Earth in the lower stratosphere, the Pentagon is building an armada of 99 Global Hawk drones equipped with high-resolution cameras capable of surveilling all terrain within a 100-mile radius, electronic sensors to intercept communications, efficient engines for continuous 24-hour flights, and eventually Triple Terminator missiles to destroy targets below.

The Fight Over the TPP Has Created a Dilemma For Democrats

When grassroots activists and union leaders threatened to withhold campaign donations from Democratic Congressmen who voted for Fast Track, it should have been a wake up call for all Democrats. If party members have been reduced to threatening representatives just to ensure voter interests are protected, then you know the party has lost its way.
