Run Chelsea, Run!

January 20, 2018

 

Chelsea Manning is running to unseat Right-wing, crypto-fascist, Russophobic Democrat Senator Ben Cardin in the Democratic Party’s upcoming Maryland primary. I hope she wipes the floor with him.  If she doesn’t knock Cardin down to run as a Democrat, I hope she runs as an indie or third party candidate for the same office.

Glenn Greenwald reports at ZNet/The Intercept on the–predictable–backlash against Manning from the Democratic Party’s “centrist” Right-wing.

From Russia with Love

Let’s revise the U. S. Constitution a smidge and elect Vladimir Putin President of the U. S.–that’s my take on the matter at the end of all the neo-McCarthyite, Russophobic, Clintonian partisan bullshit and brouhaha emanating from the injured Right wing of the Democratic Party. Sure Putin looks like Ernst Stavro Blofeld, but the fact is he’s a lot more sober and saner than either Hillary Clinton or La Donald. Very Obama-like, in fact–and that’s not exactly praise coming from me–and it would probably be the least of three evils to have him in the White House, if one has to confine one’s imagination to those options. Here’s Oliver Stone and Truthdig’s Robert Scheer rapping on Stone’s recently-released interviews with Putin–a tv series and also an audiobook which digs up information in even greater detail–courtesy of Truthdig and KPFK.

I’m not big on the work of Oliver Stone–though I did like Platoon a long time ago–but recently he’s been doing some decent documentary stuff. (The Untold History of the United States, Stone’s 2012 documentary series, is surprisingly and refreshingly free of conspiracy theorizing foolishness.)
