The Madness of Queen Hillary

Sez Hillary:

“They’re … going to do third party again.  And I’m not making any predictions but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third party candidate.  She’s the favorite of the Russians.  They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far, and that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up.  Which she might not, ’cause she’s also a Russian asset.

“Yeah, she’s a Russian asset, I mean, totally.  And so, they know they can’t win without a third party candidate and, so, I don’t know who it’s going to be it but I will guarantee you they’ll have a vigorous third party challenge in the key states that they most need it.”

State of Florida Continues to Attack Felon Voting Rights

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and his Republican-led State Legislature are doubling-down in showing how the Florida government is among the most backward in the nation.  It’s the state where ALEC-inspired “Stand Your Ground” law allowed white vigilante George Zimmerman to walk away scot free after the cold blooded murder of Trayvon Martin.  Now, DeSantis & Co. have instituted a poll tax intended to restore the disenfranchisement of the poor and disproportionately Black ex-felons who had been excluded from the political process by barring ex-felons from voting.

The Centre cannot hold — European Edition

Notre Dame burns.

As “the Continent” braces itself for a heat wave expected to be worse than the 2003 one which killed 20,000 Europeans, the headlines of last May showed alarm in varying degrees, from the European press to the titans of the New York Times and Washington Post.  The elections for the 751 seats in the European Parliament had just marked disturbing gains for both European Green parties and the anti-immigrant nationalist parties identified with the Far Right.  American Greens were delighted:

European Greens surge … voters abandon old parties over climate!

Wall Street freak out 2020

Sometimes you just gotta find out what’s happening by reading your enemies.  Like Politico, for instance.  A straight-out Wall Street/Beltway “rag.”  One of the many dilemmas the so-called Ruling Class faces is that, while lying to the American people is the first and last thing they do before going to bed each night, they know there are dangers in how much they can afford to lie to themselves.  So the 01/28/2019 Politico, “Wall Street freaks out about 2020,” gives us a window on the pressures that the progressive forces in the U.S.  are exerting on the current political scene.

“Top Wall Street executives would love to be rid of President Donald Trump.  But they are getting panicked about the prospect of an ultraliberal Democratic nominee bent on raising taxes and slapping regulations on their firms.  The result is a kind of nervous paralysis of executives pining for a centrist nominee like Michael Bloomberg while realizing such an outcome is unlikely from a party veering sharply to the left.”

Hillary simply lost Black votes because of her own arrogance.

From Green Party of Florida Co-Chair Robin Harris:

Adam Peck, editor of ThinkProgress, obviously doesn’t accept that the duopoly system has gone into self-destruct mode, nor that the Democratic Party has abandoned all pretense at being a force for progress.  Instead he blames its woes on Jill Stein and the Green Party.  His ThinkProgress article of December 22 begins:

“The extent of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election is well-documented and yet still not fully understood. Russian agents were responsible for stealing and releasing emails from the Democratic National Committee.  Russia used Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms to spread disinformation and sow discord among the American public.  This was done to benefit then-candidate Donald Trump.”

In 2016 the Democrats had their chance. Now it’s our turn!

The Two Horsemen of the Duopoly:  riding hard for the Apocalypse.

You may have thought 2016 was bad.  It wasn’t just that the country elected Donald Trump to the Oval Office, though that was pretty bad to be sure.  Rather, it was that American liberalism — always a treacherous force — took a sharp turn to the right, due to a confluence of two factors.

Green Party of Florida endorses Fair Representation Act

The Fair Representation Act (HR 3057), introduced in the U.S. House in June 2017 by Rep. Donald S. Byer, Jr. (D-VA-8), would introduce three pro-democracy changes to our voting system:  ranked choice voting; proportional representation; and fair redistricting.  The bill proposes:

  1. “establish the use of ranked choice voting in elections for Representatives in Congress”;
  2. “require each state with more than one Representative to establish multi-member Congressional districts”; and
  3. “require states to conduct Congressional redistricting through independent commissions.”
