Meditations and Molotovs – 10.17.16

Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the U.S. and Donald Trump will be in the media even more than he is today (recent reports have him starting his own cable channel – we’ll see). His supporters, emboldened but disorganized, will remain.
But where does that leave the rest of us? What should we expect from a Clinton presidency? And how will activists, particularly the millions who were mobilized for Sanders, respond?

Hillary armed Benghazi terrorists?!?

Was Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton responsible for arming the very Islamic terrorists that committed the Benghazi terror attacks? For her entire adult life, Clinton has made sure that other people paid for her mistakes, covered up her crimes, and always managed to get away scot-free. This week, her friends in President Barack Obama’s administration seem to have made another Clinton …

STAN COX – If There’s a World War II-Style Climate Mobilization, It has to Go All the Way—and Then Some

As global warming has surged this year, so too has America’s ambition for heroic climate action. Politicians, economists, and activists have been looking to America’s astonishing mobilization for World War II as a model for victory in the twenty-first century’s great climate emergency. This spring, Senator Bernie Sanders called for a World War II-scale climate mobilization at the CNN presidential …

Deena Stryker – Obama: Do What I Say, Not What I Do

President Obama’s final speech to the UN goes beyond any-thing anyone has ever heard in terms of hypocrisy: it’s too bad his Nobel can’t be parlayed into a prize for phoniness. It was a beautifully crafted speech — I’m sure he and Michelle burned the midnight oil to produce it — but I don’t think many leaders appreciated it. This …

William Greider – Whom Should We Blame for Our Deranged Democracy?

The 2016 election season started last year with a cheap stunt. The roguish clown Donald Trump set fire to the circus tent, then made fun of the fleeing performers. Many of us laughed in a sick sort of way, enjoying the Republican distress. Next the campaign became a cartoonish version of reality TV, with naughty name-calling and occasional sexual innuendo. Shock …

Aviva Chomsky – Is Trump an Aberration?

Liberal Americans like to think of Donald Trump as an aberration and believe that his idea of building a great wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to prevent immigrants from entering the country goes against American values. After all, as Hillary Clinton says, “We are a nation of immigrants.” In certain ways, in terms of the grim history of this country, they couldn’t be …

Dave Johnson – Fact-Check This: Arrogance Of Elites Helps Drive The Trump Phenomenon

For some time now most of the people in this country have been under economic pressure. Pay is not going up very much or at all, while living costs keep rising. One recent statistic stands out – 63 percent of Americans would have difficulty raising $500 to cover an emergency, like a sudden need for car repair so they can …

Glen Ford – Hillary Wants a Crusade to Defeat Trump’s “Bigotry” – and Leave Her Bankers Alone

“It took the emergence of a grassroots movement against police terror, to wake a critical mass of Black folks to the reality of their condition.” Tuesday’s primary victories will allow Hillary Clinton to get busy planning her “big tent” general election crusade against racism and incivility, in the person of Donald Trump. It will be a corporate Democrat’s dream campaign, with …

Chris Hedges – Voting With Our Feet

Bernie Sanders’ political corpse in the presidential race is still warm, but some of his prominent liberal supporters already are urging us to flee to Hillary Clinton. Sanders, who knows the game is up, will soon become the Democrats’ pied piper. He will seek to entice his supporters into the Democratic Party rattrap. He has decried the disruption of Trump rallies—denigrating …
