Oligarchy vs. Fascism: Truth Finally Dead

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.

On WikiLeaks

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

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.

  1. Gosh, I wish I could agree w/you about the animus of Assange and Clinton. True, she wanted him droned (how horrible is that???) but I’ve watched him long enough to believe he just wants to “Open Governments” like he says. He is a truth seeker and believes everyone should have the truth before making decisions, which, by the way, I happen to agree with. Thanks Michael. Again, and as always, YOU ROCK!!

  2. Wow! That’s totally not true! Liberals are not anti-transparency. Liberals are not anti-Wikileaks or anti-Julian Assange. The title of the article is not at all reflected in the substance. The title “Oligarchy v. Fascism” is a perfect reflection of the choice that liberals are making. We have the choice of Hillary Clinton, who is, in fact, not a liberal at all; her policies tend to be to the right of old time Republicans like Dwight Eisenhower or even Richard Nixon, or on the other hand we have Donald Trump, the fascist. It isn’t that difficult. Hillary can be voted out in 4 years. If you elect Donald Trump, he isn’t as likely to agree to leave office when he is voted out. We can survive Clinton. I’m not so sure about Trump. Stop making it sound like Liberals are protecting Clinton it just makes you sound stupid.

    • “Hillary can be voted out in 4 years”……………………By then the damage will already be done the TPP will pass, do you know anything about the TPP? Once put into law there is no turning back, it’s forever and no amendments can be added..tell me how thats going to benefit our country, it should be terrifying, if its not you are voitng with blinders on…early within the four years HRC will have us into WWIII, she has already stated that she wants to issue a no fly zones in Syria, do you know what that means? Pretty much WWIII, she wants to start shooting down Russia’s planes, hello? Any idea of their nuclear power, besides which Russia was invited into Syria, we weren’t. Thanks to Hillary they have a global monopoly on uranium, when she was SOS she gave Russia 20% of our uranium reserves.. uranium is used to make nukes, Russia is allies with Iran, where did she think some of it was going to wind up, or is it that she doesnt think? Whose side is she on? I realize Iran had plenty of their own uranium at the time but she indirectly supplied them with more, and now threatens their leader that she will use nukes against them.

      Any idea how many countires we are currently bombing the life out of? President Obama and Hillary are both lying in the face of our country..Assad is hardly a vilian and he isnt doing this to his own people, nor is Russia, Russia was invited to Syria, we werent..any idea what we have done to Yemen, any idea of what our president has signed into law while you werent paying attention, while you were all so taken back by the diversion so wonderfully mastered by the DNC?

      Fifteen years at war with no exit in sight and she says she made a mistake and thats ok with you? WTF? How nice of you, its apparent you didnt lose a loved on with her mistakes, did you have a loved one who did return but with their limbs blown off, or their minds unable to escape the demons of war, only to kill themselves because of her mistakes?
      How nice of you to allow your tax dollars to continue to be spent creating blood baths in countries that are of no threat to us..any idea why we have destroyed/destablized so many countries? It has nothing to do with the bogus war on terror, or ISIS..

      You are supporting someone that has a lust for regime change, war, profits and power, how many more countries are you going to enable her to destroy? How many more innocent children, women and men are you going to enable her to blow up? A million people have died in Iraq alone..500,000 children, for what? It was no mistake, it was a lie and Cheney and Halliburton turned a profit of $39.5 Billion of the tax payers money by smeating other peoples blood, there was never any proof of WMD’s or centrifuges, but they opted to invade and destroy the country anyway…who does that? HRC and ilk, that’s who. Our troops were sent into Iraq to create a blood bath, not ot defend our country, we werent being threatened. Five thousand of our troops lost their lives over lies.

      She says she made a mistake and you swallow it, why? if it was a mistake why did she do the same thing in Libya years later? Libya was Hillarys doing, she destroyed their country, she handed the people in that country a living hell, the refugees want to return but cant because its been reduced to rubble, and the country is now over run by ISIS..who she/Obama have helped arm, fund and in some cases trained. Do your homework.

      Is it really ok what the Clintons did to the people in Haiti, or the people/ government in Honduras…how many more lives are you going to allow this psychopath to shatter? Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Haiti, Honduras/Latin America…and today she threatens to use nukes to defend Israel..we will need to bring the draft back with her, do you remember the draft, I do, the difference today is that it will be both males and females from 18-26 yo….. turn off msm, peoples lives depend on it. She is no better than her opponent, they are both psychopaths..she belongs in prison, not the White House, she will continue on with Obama’s legacy..the TPP, more bombs, more deaths, more fracking,more drilling, more pipelines, more lies and getting us that much closer to the NWO. She will have this country destroyed within the first four years.

      “Hillary can be voted out in 4 years”………Really? How so? She didnt win the primaries legit and shes still in the running, she had it igged before she even announced she was running for the presidency again, once she becomes president our country is screwed, with no way out!!

  3. A shared post from Mary Honan:

    This is the man and the organization Clinton is trying to disparage. Wikileaks has never ever released emails that were not 100% authenticated and the awards they have won is testament to their desire for transparency and a better world. WikiLeaks, its publisher and its journalists have won many awards, including:
    The Economist New Media Award (2008)
    The Amnesty New Media Award (2009)
    TIME Magazine Person of the Year, People’s Choice (highest global vote) (2010)
    The Sam Adams Award for Integrity (2010)
