Oligarchy vs. Fascism: Truth is Truly Dead
Welcome to the Brave New World. In this world, our oligarchy is in full view. The group once thought least likely to support the ruling elite have dutifully lined up. Their favored candidate is a wet dream for the one-percenters. She stands for everything the Left claimed to be against prior to this cycle – war, fracking, money in politics, etc. In some ways, this is a continuation of our love affair with the Obama Administration. We accepted so many things that were unpalatable under Bush/Cheney. Not all were his fault. But, much of it was in one way or another.
Through WikiLeaks, we are getting a view into how our oligarchy functions. We have seen how the donor class must have their ego’s stroked, how the bankers make cabinet “suggestions” for the President, how media is gamed to manufacture consent and much more. This is on the Left. We are supposed to know better.
I want to take a minute to discuss WikiLeaks. On the Left, WikiLeaks was a go-to source for truth. This cycle is different. I am the first to admit that Julian Assange likely has some personal animus against Sec. Clinton. Wanting to drone him may have something to do with it. But, that may just be my petty nature.
WikiLeaks has won award, after award, after award. WikiLeaks and Assange won the 2009 Amnesty International Human Rights Reporting Award. Nominated for the UN Mandela Prize just last year. WikiLeaks and associated individuals have been in Nobel Prize consideration for half a decade. This is a serious organization with serious bonafides.
On the Russia spin, please read this great piece from our Editorial Board. Really don’t have anything to add to that. Not necessary.
Liberals Brought to Heel
Liberals became anti-transparency nearly overnight for Hillary Clinton.
Let that sink in.

One thing that Twitter has taught me is that the fact-averse will not believe your position no matter what data you present. They prefer to believe what is fed to them by the corporate media that has been compromised and exposed. Truly, there are plenty of sources to show that.
Here is an example: I remember douchebag Corey Lewandowski was collecting a check from CNN and the Trump campaign at the same time. The left was up-in-arms. Now that it has been shown that while Donna Brazile was a contributor to CNN, she was also working with the Clinton camp – silence. Shhhh…
The hypocrisy just gets worse and worse. There is no way this crew is going to even try to hold an oligarchy-backed Clinton White House accountable for anything. Ever.
The Republic is in trouble.
