9 January 2018. Brother Ajamu Speaks on Democracy

________________________

They say that Trump is like a child, and he is, but over 60 million people voted for him. I came online today to read the comments about Oprah and I just have to shake my head and wonder, just for a moment, if there really is any hope for democracy in the USA.

Brother Ajamu Speaks: The Normalisation of Craziness

What do we do when craziness is “normal?” Yes… the inmates are running the asylum… in both the Repugs and Dems… may the good God preserve us!

________________________

Talk about crazy… when your élite leaders from both parties talk about nuclear war and constant warmongering, and the public accepts it as normal. The same public that thinks the USA is a champion of human rights. If Trump’s crazy, he isn’t the only one in the USA.

There’s no difference between Trumpkin Bumpkins and Hillarybot Upper-Middles… both applaud warmongering and both scream that those of us who supported “other” candidates in 2016 were “spoilers”. The Clintonistas are as bat-shit crazy as the Trumpkins are… they merely have more money and “respectability”. That makes them “worse”… not “better”…

Jill Stein in the Crosshairs: The Russiagate Investigation Shifts to Clinton’s Political Rivals

________________________

Jill Stein had dinner with Putin, so… GET THE GUILLOTINE! That’s how we roll in this country now. Didn’t she know it’s illegal to eat with Russians?

The Russiagate investigation zeroed-in on Green Party candidate Jill Stein. That proves that the probe isn’t an attempt to determine whether Russia meddled in the 2016 elections, but a crude weapon to bully the political rivals of Hillary Clinton and her dissolute allies in the bureaucracy. On Monday, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) (chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee) said that the committee was “just starting to look at Ms Stein’s campaign as it continues its investigation of the Trump campaign”. According to the New York Times:

Democrats seethed for more than a year at Ms Stein, whose tens of thousands of votes in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania either exceeded or nearly matched Donald Trump’s margins of victory in those states, which delivered him the White House. At least in certain quarters, they greeted news of the queries enthusiastically.

Jesse Ferguson, a former Clinton campaign spokesman, said Americans ought to know if a presidential nominee, no matter how minor, was a Russian asset or that they simply boosted her in an effort to chip away Democratic votes from Clinton. He said:

Russian operatives weren’t promoting Jill Stein because they thought she’d win. They were promoting her because they thought it’d hurt Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump.

A “Russian asset?” Jill Stein is a “Russian asset?” How long are American liberals going to put up with this bullshit? How long before they wash the mud from their eyes and acknowledge what should be as plain as the nose on their face… their precious investigation of Donald Trump is nothing more than a witch-hunt to intimidate or destroy political rivals. Jill Stein’s persecution strips away the façade… exposing Russiagate as a complete fraud used to exact revenge on the adversaries of Hillary Clinton and her reprobate friends. Even the New York Times admits as much. Why is there no evidence of wrongdoing after more than a year of relentless non-stop investigations? Why are there just accusations, allegations, and baseless claims?

Take a hard look at the Stein case and you’ll understand why. The meat-puppet senators conducting these wretched show-trials don’t give a damn about the truth. They know the case against Stein is a complete fabrication. They also know they can carry on with complete impunity because the big money powerbrokers that pull their strings and order them about are beyond the reach of any legal accountability. That’s what’s really going on; the fatcat behind-the-scenes honchos are just settling scores for Hillary’s lost election. It’s payback time for the Clinton Mafia. Here’s more baloney from the Times:

Senate investigators are interested in unravelling what was behind the apparent closeness between Ms Stein, a Harvard-educated doctor and perennial Green Party candidate, and Russia.

Give me a break. Does anyone on the Senate Intelligence Committee honestly believe that Jill Stein is a Russian agent? Of course not. They’re just harassing her to send a message to the rest of us:

You’d better watch your step or we’ll trump up charges against you and make your life a living hell.

Isn’t that the message? You’re damn right it is! You call this “America?” Here’s a clip from an article by Danielle Ryan at “blacklisted” RT… you probably shouldn’t read it because it undoubtedly will transform you into a Russian agent or a Kremlin apologist:

This is a witch hunt. It’s neo-McCarthyism, plain and simple. The people who are outright calling Stein a Russian agent are making a complete mockery of themselves and of the American political process. Dragging Stein into this mess shows Clinton Democrats up for what they really are. It proves that the “Resist” crowd’s crusade isn’t just about Trump and “collusion”… it’s also about discrediting all dissenting American voices and establishing their own definition of what political opposition is supposed to look like. For the Clinton cult, it’s not supposed to look like Jill Stein. Anyone who disagrees with the Democrats is a Putin puppet… if you’ve ever been to Moscow, forget it… don’t even bother trying to defend yourself. Off with your head.

Bravo, Ryan! You nailed it, girl. It’s too bad America’s liberals don’t see things so clearly. The World Socialist Web Site also issued a statement condemning the attacks on Stein. As always, the WSWS is on the forefront of the issue while the other phoney liberal sites and pundits continue to support these thoroughly-corrupted and reactionary investigations. Here’s an excerpt from their statement:

The Socialist Equality Party condemns the targeting of Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate in the 2016 election, by the neo-McCarthyite witch-hunters on the Senate Intelligence Committee. The attack on Stein, spearheaded by the Democratic Party, is an unconstitutional attempt to delegitimise and suppress political opposition to the monopoly of the capitalist two-party system. In addition to the dinner hosted by RT, Stein, according to ranking committee Democrat Mark Warner, had “very complimentary things to say about Julian Assange”. For having spoken out publicly in support of a political prisoner and dissident, Stein is threatened with being hauled before a congressional committee as if she were involved in a treasonous activity. This is the Orwellian reality of America in 2017, ruled by two rightwing oligarchic parties that can and will tolerate no political opposition.

Imagine that… Stein actually spoke up for Assange, the highly-principled whistleblower who sacrificed his own freedom to expose the truth about Washington’s homicidal activities around the world? That has to be worth 30 years of hard labour at least! What a farce! Here’s more from the Times:

Senator Mark Warner (D-VA), the committee’s top Democrat, wouldn’t comment directly on the committee’s interest in Ms Stein, but pointed out that several of the interactions appeared to be consequential, saying, “I’ll point out though that Ms Stein was at the infamous dinner that included General Flynn and Vladimir Putin, and we do know that she has very complimentary things to say about Julian Assange, who certainly was being used by the Russians to take some of the hacked information and release it into our political system”. The disclosure that the committee is looking closely at Stein’s campaign is the latest indication that the Senate committee is still expanding its investigation as it nears the one-year mark.

Do you hear that, liberals? Do you hear what Warner is saying? Do you like the idea that the investigation is expanding and that the hectoring, harassing, and intimidating is going to continue for the foreseeable future and that it’s going to include anyone who admires men like Assange or Snowden or Manning or anyone who opposes the corrupt and murderous oligarchy that rules this stinking country? Do you like that idea? If you’re a liberal and you hate Donald Trump, then, you probably see the Russiagate investigation as your best chance to achieve the Golden Grail of “impeachment”. However, are you willing to compromise your principles, join forces with the sinister and unscrupulous Clinton cabal, and throw allies like Jill Stein under the bus to achieve your goal?

How high a price are you willing to pay to get rid of Trump?

That’s the question that every liberal in America should ask themselves. They’d better answer it fast before it’s too late.

Brother Ajamu on Why “Liberals” Are More Evil than “Conservatives” Are

________________________

We won’t forget that our liberal “friends” led the charge to allow capitalist corporations and the capitalist state to limit access to information at the high point of the systems legitimation crisis. This is why I consider liberals more of a threat than conservatives are.
