Perpetual warmongers flee to Clinton

You can’t be a Commie symp anymore.

But, better still, you can be a Russian Manchurian candidate or a Russian symp, particularly if you think pushing missile batteries in NATO always closer to Moscow is a lousy idea. It’s genuinely fascinating how my party became more cynically paranoid and pro-pre-thermonuclear war than the other side.

GOP & center-right Strangeloves are now welcome after ridicule by the nuts guy.

The same people who wholeheartedly supported or made the most horrendous mistakes in the last fifteen years:

[If] there’s a common theme to this most recent wave of GOP dissenters, it’s just how eerily close they sound to Hillary Clinton’s talking points.

“He is unable or unwilling to separate truth from falsehood,” the GOP national security leaders said in the letter. “He does not encourage conflicting views. He lacks self-control and acts impetuously. He cannot tolerate personal criticism. He has alarmed our closest allies with his erratic behavior. All of these are dangerous qualities in an individual who aspires to be president and commander in chief, with command of the US nuclear arsenal.”

Trump is a cat’s paw of Putin. WikiLeaks, The Intercept, Glenn Greenwald, others are all in the tank for Russia to influence the US infection. If you’re not pro-HRC, you’re for Russian hackers.

“[Let’s] hope the unlikely unity extends beyond the neocons and with any luck, lasts longer than the election,” writes the explainer at The Guardian.

A most Culture of Lickspittle historical moment.

    I read a brilliant interview yesterday, that deals with several recurring subjects in this blog:

    The chart translated effectively. It’s pretty sophisticated language in the discussion which Google appears to have a hard time making sound natural. It’s very readable, though.

    free market economy = Conglomerate dictatorship or dictatorship

    courageous social plan = Downsizing

    From the wire today, one sample:

     Still, Bernie Sanders, and Sanders supporters and surrogates, should use the Politico story to draw a line, making clear that they will withdraw their support of Clinton if Clinton accepts Kissinger’s endorsement. If Sanders stands for anything, it is the promise of decency and civil equality, qualities that he has worked hard to bestow on Clinton since the Democratic National Convention. By accepting Kissinger’s endorsement, Clinton wouldn’t just be mocking that gift. She’d be sending the clearest signal yet to grassroots peace and social-justice Democrats that her presidency wouldn’t be a “popular front” against Trumpian fascism. It would be bloody business as usual.

    As context on the US scene, keep in mind if you did not see it — Bernie Sanders wrote a big op ed for the Los Angeles Times on Sunday explaining to his voters why it was imperative they go to Clinton. Presumably before the Kissinger thing began to leak.

    elder statesmen = war criminals
