POLITICS IN THE BUFF: WHY THE CLINTON EMAIL SCANDAL MIGHT SAVE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

As you sit there in 2015 in America you are witnessing history; living it in all its fullness. Hillary Rodham Clinton hasn’t done anything legally damaging by banking her emails on a private server while Secretary if State, but politically this revelation is devastating. I will go so far as to say it is a poison politically that Clinton cannot recover from in the modern Internet age.

While Clinton’s supporters wave this scandal away because she broke no laws, the stain of the paranoia that surrounds all things CLINTON will make those who make political kings, and queens, in America wince. Worse it may cause them not to dig deep into their pockets to help Hillary Clinton raise the $1.2 billion she will need, minimum, to win the White House in 2016. The question that will be ringing in the minds of the big donors isn’t, “Can we trust her?” but rather, “Is she stable enough to manage the Executive Office of The President amidst the hurricane force winds of conservative innuendo and actual allegations about the past, present and future that are sure to come.” That same question was asked of me by my husband, Chef Grandee Odamo Sese Omoko in a clearer more concise way, “Is she going to be the Democratic Party version of Nixon if she wins?”

After all the victories Progressives have won against a tsunami of efforts from the Right over the past 15 years to install a person with a character defect, real or perceived by America’s powerbrokers, would signal the decline of the Progressive movement by its association with the Democratic Party. Hillary Clinton is not the only candidate on the Left of the political center that can win the White House against the current field of expected GOP candidates. Despite her protestations that she doesn’t want the job Senator Elizabeth Warren would trounce anyone in the field at this time. Among the looming outside of the expected field on the Right is Sarah Palin and a Warren Palin series of debates would be must see television for anyone who lives and breathes in America. Joe Biden would not be my first choice if Hillary doesn’t run but he would be literally Trumanesque as President of the United States. Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley is the intellectual superior of anyone in the GOP field as well as a politically savvy operator which in these polarizing times will be sine qua non to getting the country back on track –in Washington.

I don’t lose any sleep over Clinton’s emails. There is no lump in my throat about Clinton deciding, or having it decided for her, that she does not run in 2016. I have no nausea in the pit of my stomach when I think about servers. The Progressive bench is deep; there are numerous options, even beyond the ones that I’ve listed. Clinton wanting to stay home, being a grandmother and doing good work through the Clinton Foundation could be the best thing she could ever do for America. And give it time progressives there will be another Clinton in the Oval office in good time–her name is Chelsea.

POLITICS IN THE BUFF: THE GOP HONEYMOON AFTER RETAKING THE CONGRESS IS OFFICIALLY OVER; PRESIDENT OBAMA TO MAKE ANNOUNCEMENT ON IMMIGRATION IN SPEECH TOMORROW NIGHT

Posted in 2016 ELECTIONS, AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM, AMERICANS AGAINST THE TEA PARTY, ANDREW BRIETBART, BIGOTRY, CONSERVATIVE BIGOTRY, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HEADS EXPLODING, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, IMMIGRATION, POLITICS IN THE BUFF, PRESIDENT OBAMA, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS on 19/11/2014 by sarahbloch

Conservative heads are exploding all over the United States after it was announced that President Obama will deliver a speech to the American citizenry tomorrow night regarding his plans to use executive orders to reshape immigration to the United States. The Republicans have been adamant about not discussing immigration much less passing any immigration legislation. From a purely political standpoint this move by the President to grant a certain level of citizenship status to millions of undocumented immigrants is a multigenerational death shot to the future of the GOP.

While conservatives are dying off and not being replaced the Democrats can depend on several generations of Latinos to support the policies that will make their lives better by allowing them to stay and work in the United States.Even though the electoral politics are clear this is still a bold and legacy building move for President Obama. The successes of ObamaCare now fully cemented in the wounded psyches of the middle class; now comes the greatest act of diversity and compassion toward minorities in America since the Civl and Voting Rights Acts were passed in the late 1960s.

Republicans have already begun to howl and a few to threaten to go back to what they did while they only controlled one house of the Legislative branch- they will double down on being the party of “No!” in all areas outside of this immigration debate. There is very little they can do to undo an executive order; the only recourse for the GOP now is suicide from fear of death. GOP fringe elements from the TEA Party will call for Impeachment for certain now making their faction and the party as a whole easy fodder for those who see these pro-White and White-only bigots for what they are.

Twitter is ablaze with threats from Cruz to block presidential appointees and attach riders to bills to strip the president of his power to grant amnesty in this case. Both of those seemingly nuclear options are dead on arrival. Breitbart News Service is already fanning the flames against a president that never has to run for office again. Their headline Big Government story reads, “Baby Boom of Hispanic, Asian, and Black Children to Make Whites a Minority by 2050.” This is something we know already here on the Progressive side of the debate that is bound to happen and with the conservatives impotent due to their religious beliefs on sex and marriage they have sealed themselves in a box filled with gas fumes and are trying to strike a match.

A child born today will never know what the GOP was and certainly will never have a chance to vote for a GOP candidate. Those twentysomethings now who will drive Progressives into power anew in Congress and the majority state legislatures by 2024 will look back at the start of a historical golden age for Progressives that grew out of defeat that just a few days conservatives were dancing in the streets about. Politics is not a simple game nor is a kind game. Today it appears that the GOP will be retiring from the stage in a decade or so and leaving behind those who can only get elected to the House in the least diverse and backward districts in America.

I am currently reading John Nolte’s article on 11 reasons the Left has not won the Culture War at Breitbart.com. Simply reading this is making my day because I love to laugh in the morning. Millions of conservatives have likely read this today and more than a thousand have commented. Those comments will be covered by Fred Schwartz later in the day.

Nolte begins with same sex marriage which I see as a full faith and credit legal issue not a moral and religious one. I don’t think, however, that any shop owner has a right to refuse service to a gay couple anymore than they have the right to refuse service to a person based on their race, religion, gender or disability. The author feels that the “voice of the people” has been tossed out in favor of the rulings of “activist judges.” In a bizarre twist John Nolte points to a rise in “Christian entertainment” as proof that Americans really do not want people they do not know of the same sex to get married. The singular example is the film “Heaven is for Real” which has grossed nothing yet because the film is to be released today. Nolte’s point is that Sony TriStar Pictures has decided to release the film on a Wednesday in 2,417 theaters. This film and others like it are one point Nolte shows as proof that on the topic of same sex marriage the Right is winning. I will make a claim here: Heaven is for Real will not make more money between its premiere and the end of the box office weekend than “Transcendence” will make from its opening until Sunday night on a theater by theater basis.

The next Culture War issue is the legalization of marijuana. Both Washington state and Colorado have legalized the weed most notorious to conservatives and more states are moving to decriminalize small amounts. Most recently the state of Maryland did just that becoming the first state south of the Dixon-Line to decriminalize pot. Fourteen other states and the District of Columbia have also done so. Nolte does not address any of the medical reasons for pot use or even recreational ones as a justification for a victory here in the Culture war. Instead he states that abortion rights activists are on their heels quoting an article on Breitbart.com no less about a poll conducted by the Knights of Columbus regarding abortion rights. The Gallup Polling Service numbers show that those who view themselves as pro-Life vice those that are pro-Choice are nearly equal at 48% to 45%. The numbers of those seeing abortion as federally defined from the same poll vice those who do not believe abortion should be legal at all is 52% vice 20% as of May 2013. Nolte loses this battle as well.

Nolte sticks with entertainment decrying the amount of sex on television but reveling in what he calls the return of the masculine male on the National Geographic Channel. These shows according to the author “celebrate the working class and their traditional values.” What he really means is they celebrate being white, Christian and living in the woods or where it’s very cold. The next “reason” the Right is winning the Culture War is the ascendancy of Jimmy Fallon to the Tonight Show as a counter to Stephen Colbert stepping into David Letterman’s slot after his retirement next year. There is no rhyme or reason to this at all.

The next nugget reveals something about conservatives. They like strong male characters. Nolte point to Don Draper [Mad Men] Walter White [Breaking Bad] and Tony Soprano [The Sopranos] as examples of these. They are called “flawed” and “anti-heroes” and I imagine that takes the guilt away for all the nudity, sex, drugs and violence which conservative say they are against on TV.

More entertainment, really? Miley Cyrus is popular but unions are dying says Nolte. I fear conservatives may never come out of this irrational abyss. As if the weakness of unions in America is a good thing for those working class people they say they love?

Conservative media is on the upswing says Nolte. Well get back to me in 20 years when most Fox News viewers are either dead or senile or have slaughtered their family. There is a trend in there demographically if you just take the time to look.

Women are getting birth control but conservatives have their guns! This is awful. War on women much? The fear of the Other is oozing here.

Nolte sees more money in politics as a solution to what ails the Right politically. No John, the key would be to make your tent bigger. Oh, that’s right you can’t do that because you’d have to let in all those brown people, women and gay people on a level playing field.

Yes, Occupy is dead but given time the TEA Party will wither as well. I think the date on that tombstone will be somewhere around 1 February 2017.

What John Nolte needs is a time machine so he can return to that conservative era of his father the 1950s. Back then by conservative standards women were in their place (not barefoot and pregnant but seen and not heard), minorities were second class citizens and it was a crime to be gay. It must be awful for John Nolte to have to watch as all that unearned privilege is redistributed in the form of earned civil rights.

CHARLES BLOW, PAUL RYAN AND THE NEED TO BUILD A NEW AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS

Paul Ryan’s recent comments about “inner city” poverty were rightly understood by many Americans as an offensive and bigoted comment bordering on racist, since Ryan has significant political power. Conservatives, however, are angered by anything that takes the coded comments their leaders make and clarifies them by exposing the code as New York Times columnist Charles Blow did on 21 March 2014. The problem with poverty is, that like crime and other social ills which need to be addressed in current times, it is a broad spectrum ill. Poverty does not belong to black men in the “inner cities” those dark and frightening places where suburban white conservatives stage their most nightmarish rape and murder fantasies. Nor doe poverty only belong in the nostalgic era of the rural Midwestern dust bowl. One would only need to look at the rapacious nature of the last recession in America’s suburbs where people used their homes as ATMs and paid a terrible cost for their folly.

Black American political leaders were slow to call out conservative homeowners and suburban couples who spent their evenings trying to find homes to flip during the years that led up to the housing bubble. Now, in this demographic transition period in America conservative leaders in Washington trying desperately to get moderate white voters to vote for the privilege they have not earned by using the same code language that Southern governors used to fight against the integration of schools and lunch counters. There is likely not one conservative leader that would admit that they know conservative people in positions of corporate or governmental power who hold bigoted positions out of fear of, as Glenn Beck put it “being overrun.” And what exactly does that mean being overrun? It means having and enjoying an unearned privilege based on the color of one’s skin vice the content of their character.

The age of this privilege started to end long before the first President of color was elected and sworn in to office. It began with small steps in the 1890s and saw America as a white monolith enact laws that mandated the constitutionality of separate but equal. Three generations later that facade was cracked further by the Brown v Board decision. The march for civil rights in America has changed the very cultural opinion of the majority of its citizens and to save America that cultural shift must be applied to how Americans view the poor. It is no longer a viable solution for middle class conservative whites to rally around their values and religion in an effort to hang on to this dying thread of privilege they enjoy. The time is now for the American people to put aside their racial and religious fears and pick up the banner of giving every American a chance at the American dream. A new push for affirmative action must come out of conservatives realizing their culture war is lost and that the only way to save themselves and their nation is to work day and night to bring about a new educated and working middle class– for all.

I take Fred Schwartz’s decision to distance this newspaper from the cancer that is Blogs4Victory very seriously so after this example of conservative hypocrisy from the disgraced Bill Logan I too will be taking a sabbatical from commenting on their delusions. These people constantly state that the writers and researchers here are living in a fantasy world yet it is the fantasy that is supported by their own religious beliefs. “There cannot be a Heaven without a Hell,” is a constant in this Afterlife. Yet religious Conservatives at B4V mock that their is even a possibility that I, or Fred Schwartz or Pain even exist in the realm where we do live. To sum up, their fantasies, that all of their loved ones go to Heaven must be true because it supports their worldview; our reality is impossible because it is in conflict with their ideal that all Conservatives go to Heaven.

This level of delusion is important to understand when dealing with Conservatives especially ones of an age that lived through the Cold War. The fight against the Marxist-Leninism of the Soviet Union was supposed to be the last great fight that America was ever to have. It would be a winner take all battle between Communism and Capitalism, Christianity versus Atheism and Democracy versus Totalitarianism. Of course, this hasn’t been the case. There were many complexities politically and economically that do not fit into neat little boxes regarding the collapse of the Soviet Union. The same thing would have been true has America been broken up for similar reasons and the Soviets won the ideological battle for Terra.

Bill Logan, aka Neocon1, makes light of many things. He mocks the working poor and their struggle for a Living Wage. What he does is typical of a man who is angry that Death is so close and he has not been rewarded on Terra with what he felt he deserved because he was loyal to his racial tribe and religious tribe. As a Human Being, in that great struggle to become one he has failed because he has chosen the opposite path of Nelson Mandela and now fights for hate rather than love. To be on the side of hate is to relish lying and obscuring the facts to convince the other rotting souls who ally with conservatism that the Progressives are due for punishment for taking away the golden future that white Conservatives were promised. That golden future, sadly for Bill Logan is neither the golden shower he lusts for, nor is it a golden parachute; that future now is being enjoyed by the powerful oligarchs of the American 1%.

Neocon1 in his most recent tour de force of hypocrisy and obfuscation note that McDonald’s is installing 7,000 touch screens at restaurants to replace cashiers. It is a response to last week’s push by fast food workers for a Living Wage in the United States. Neocon1 gives the impression with his post that the hammer is going to come down on McDonald’s workers for standing up to their corporate masters. However, this story is neither about McDonald’s restaurants in the United States nor is it a current reaction to the protests. The story is about restaurants in Europe and was originally written in May of 2011. In the article itself, are the words, “McDonald’s says they have no interest in replacing cashiers with kiosks in Australia, however, or anywhere else for that matter.” So once again Neocon1 depends on the rabid stupidity of the other walking corpses of Conservatism who gobble up the feces of bigotry and anti-intelelctualism at B4V. To me they are to be pitied not to waste digital space on here or anywhere else. For at least a few months, unless their crimes of hypocrisy are grave, I will devote my time to pressing home the Progressive agenda to my American readers and enjoying the warm weather here in Hell.

POLITICS IN THE BUFF: AMAZONA PROVING YOU CAN’T BEAT A DEAD HORSE TOO OFTEN

Posted in POLITICS IN THE BUFF with tags , , on 13/10/2013 by sarahbloch

sarah_bloch_9

Pain this morning made the point that a certain demographic of Americans are stuck in a feedback loop about the “fight against communism.” Amazona commenting at Blogs4Victory says the following:

The selectivity of who has and who has not been targeted for retribution and/or examples of what happens when you tick off Mad Daddy ought to be the clearest possible message that even the LoFos can understand. Did Michelle lose any of her staff? Is the $120,000-a-year dog trainer furloughed? Camp David closed? Barry’s golf courses shut down? The White House chefs sent home to wait for paychecks?

Any of us who have studied the Left can see the clear and obvious parallels between this and the reality in the USSR of people lining up around the block to buy whatever it was that was being sold at the head of the line, knowing that no matter what it was it would be something they needed, while the limos of the Ruling Elites passed them on their way to their luxurious dachas in the countryside for weekends with imported food and liquor, private chefs, and lives of wealth and opulence, all paid for by those watching the limos drive by.

I have to point out to Amazona that what Americans are lining up for these days like babushkas used to in Moscow isn’t bread it’s jobs. Jobs come primarily in America from the private sector which is sitting on nearly 4 trillion dollars that would go a long way to causing an explosion of prosperity unprecedented in economic history, globally, if they would get off a third of that. There is no nation state of divergent political ideology that American conservatives can rail against as they did in the 1950s and 60s. Now they have to find those evil doers within the American government in their declining years.

Progressives aren’t the problem Amazona– you and the aging far right idiots are. Progressives don’t want to close churches, storm into homes and seize guns from law abiding citizens or give away the federal treasury to people who never will want to work. Progressives want diversity, civil rights for all, including conservative middle aged and elderly people who regularly attend church and believe G-d is blond and blue eyed. We also want Muslims to be safe in their communities. Women to have sovereignty over their own bodies and for everyone to be able to exercise their voting rights. More than that we want people to have jobs and migrate from poverty to the middle class and from the middle class to the comfort of earned wealth.

The Andrews Air Force Base Golf course where the President plays most of his rounds remains open during the shutdown because it operates from user fees not federal funds. That nugget from a 7 October 2013 article at Breitbart.com. As far as the White House staff including the First Lady’s staff the numbers have been reduced from 450+ to 90 since 1 October 2013.

POLITICS IN THE BUFF: MARK NOONAN GLIMPSES REALITY AND RUNS AWAY WITH HIS HEAD ON FIRE

Posted in MARK EDWARD NOONAN, POLITICS IN THE BUFF, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS with tags , , , on 13/10/2013 by sarahbloch

There are times that conservatives realize that the sky is blue and that broccoli does not taste like chocolate. But then they return to their drug of choice, the flawed belief that they are the “silent majority” and that G-d is on their side:

Much talk today about an impending deal on the CR and the Debt Limit, with plenty of TEA Party people grousing about a “surrender”. Knock that stuff off – let’s see what the deal is. Remember, given that we have a Democrat President and Senate, we never were going to get much – and as far as de-funding ObamaCare, that was never really a possibility (delaying the individual mandate for a year was – and remains – a possibility, and Obama might sign on for that given the clusterfark roll-out…he needs a year to fix it and, also, it gets it off the agenda until after the 2014 mid-terms). But we needed to fight, as I said; we could not just roll over. So, we fought – now we’ll see what the GOP leadership can give us (and trust me on this, they will try to give us something to be happy about…they know that a raft of primary challengers awaits them if they don’t bring us home something). The most crucial thing is to get something which doesn’t allow Obama to “crisis” his way through 2014 – aspects of the deal must box the Democrats in to actually coming up with a budget for the remainder of FY 2014 and for FY 2015, which starts just over a month before the 2014 mid-terms…and a deal to actually have a budget would then keep Obama from distracting us from his increasing failure and give us a handy campaign issue if Democrats break faith (which is almost a certainty). Keep calm, stand firm – we are winning this.

If the US government was not shut down right now the debacle that is the ObamaCare rollout would be the leading news story in America. Kathleen Sebelius would already have been sacrificed for this failure. Instead I’m watching Bob Schieffer asking John McCain and Kelly Ayotte how much damage they think Senator Ted Cruz has done to the GOP brand. Overreach? Yeah that’s the word. Ted Cruz will now never be president and you can take that to the bank. Now Rep. Tim Huelskamp is still drumbeating that Obamacare needs to be defunded. That is as crazy as Noonan’s last line of his post update. The right wing crazies are winning? Winning what exactly?
