Even from the always truly awful NY Post?
A little truth seeps through once in a while:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just sent some more shade to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
In a “60 Minutes” interview, correspondent Lesley Stahl pointed out the different groups within the House Democratic caucus. “You have these wings — AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl said.
“That’s like five people,” Pelosi interrupted.
Stahl corrected the snarky remark, saying that the “progressive group is more than five.”
“Well, I’m progressive — I’m a progressive, yeah,” Pelosi responded.
She’s a progressive, alright.
Because she said she was.
Listen up…those few of you here who can still hear the truths of the matter over the ongoing, seemingly never-ending and basically overwhelming blare of the mass media…left, center and right.
There are maybe five or six Representatives and a few Senators…two of whom (Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren) are running for president…who are even approaching telling the truth about the corporate rot eating up this country and this government.
Tap-dancing around in true swampland fashion, trying to stay in power as long as they can.
Give me a break!!!
Remember that pic of her making a clapping gesture at Trump during his State of the Disunion message?
When I saw it, all I could think was that it was a gang sign…the Bloods and the Crips (red and blue, remember)…just having a little squabble.
Somewhere deep in the back rooms of the Democratic Party/DNC, I can fucking guarantee that Pelosi and/or her little messengers are actively stirring up primary challenges against AOC, anybody who is allied with her now in the House and any of her possible allies who might want to run against mainstream Dems.
P.S. Those of you who actually pay attention to this blog may have noticed that I have not been posting here as much as usual. That will continue until this whole primary farce begins to shake out. My own take on what will happen is that the major media will end up once again seriously and effectively dissing Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke and anybody else who does not belong to the Insider Club…anyone else who has not made their bones as an insider Dem by playing the legal graft game. The only question that remains is whether the media have been so seriously harmed by their own false news operations…again, left, right or center…that an appreciable number of U.S. citizens will simply stop paying much attention to them.
Let us pray it so.
But…I would not place a bet on it.
The trance power/addictive power of mass media is amazingly strong!!!
Prepare to welcome in Joe Biden or Kamala Harris or Corey Booker or whomever else both meets the stringent criminal requirements of the Inner Circle and also shows at least some some signs that he or she might actually be able to beat…or at least slow down…Donald Trump and the rest of the several rival gangs’ attempts to take over the whole country.
P.P.S. Speaking of bets…
Betting odds today on the 2020 election…calculated by people with no real interest in the result other than making a profit on it, thus probably the most reliable sign of what is about to happen if conditions do not change radically somehow…show Trump at +130, Sanders at +600, O’Rourke at +800, Harris at +900 and Biden or Buttigieg at +1000.
For those of you who do not speak bookie-talk, this means that…as of now (way early in the game…before that game actually starts, in truth)…If today you bet say $100 on Trump winning and he did indeed win, you would receive $130. If however, you bet $100 on Sanders winning, you would receive $600. This is popularly known as a fairly long shot, and the following odds are even longer.
Of course…all of these odds have to do with the number of candidates running for the DemRat nomination and the (now unfortunately quite remote) possibility that Trump might be rendered unable to run do to…ahem…”legal difficulties” or other negative possibilities too deliciously numerous to mention. Once the Dem field narrows down the odds will of course change, but they will not likely change so far that they will make a Dem the favorite unless (much-to-be-hoped-for) pictures of say Trump in bed with a goat and several children were to surface.
I mean…if you add up the odds of the top five Dem possibilities and then divide by 5, you would get +860 odds. That means that…right now…the pro bookies are saying that it’s a little more than 6.6 to 1 that Trump will be reelected.
Now…were they right in 2016?
There is no telling how much the bookies lost by betting against Trump in 2016. But…especially given his ascendency to the U.S. throne and ensuing survival of everything the centrist/leftiness mass media could possibly throw at him……it appears that they have learned their lesson.
Are you ready for another Scylla and Charybdis election?
Win or lose?
Ready to still lose, even if you win!!!???
Either way…more wars, more corporate control of the media and the government, more global climate change, the acceleration of political and climate-caused migrations and their violently anti-human opposition?
Are you ready?
