A Conspirology of Hillary Clinton, 9/11 and Death | AKIRA

The American presidency has many sacred and ritual aspects, the most important of which is the symbolic conquest and subjugation of Death. The Presidential campaign is as much a audition for the role of the high priest of American Consumerism as anything else. Hillary’s ugly collapse at the 9/11 Anniversary ceremony has thus triggered a slide in the polls and a viral new “Hillary is Dead” conspiracy theory.

The Race for President is (Probably) Over | Dilbert Blog

If humans were rational creatures, the time and place of Clinton’s “overheating” wouldn’t matter at all. But when it comes to American psychology, there is no more powerful symbol of terrorism and fear than 9-11 . When a would-be Commander-in-Chief withers – literally – in front of our most emotional reminder of an attack on the homeland, we feel unsafe. And safety is our first priority.

Hillary Clinton just became unelectable.

Dilbert on Trump | VIDEO

“Are you still predicting a landslide for Donald J. Trump?” Jones asked Adams, who has been closely studying the psychology behind the race.

“I am, based on technique, not policies,” Adams, a trained hypnotist, said.

“And it looks like Clinton’s not going to make it to the end line based on what she looked like yesterday,” the cartoonist added, referring to a picture in which Hillary looked like she was in “physical pain.”

The new culture war dividing America | SP!KED

Class increasingly defines America’s new Culture Wars, pitting the rising power of well-educated, and self-regarding, supermen (or should I say super-people), against those they regard as less cognitively gifted. This clerisy – the media, academia, the well-funded progressive non-profits – is now waging what the Atlantic recently called ‘a war on stupid people’, which, of course, extends particularly to those who back the loutish Trump. As a group, this educated caste shares increasingly uniformly progressive social views and are almost 50 per cent more likely to be Democrats than Republicans.

Clinton Plans to Destroy Russia | Eric Zuesse

Leaked emails are filling in the picture of a Bill-and-Hillary-Clinton plan to destroy Russia – a plan which had originated with US President George Herbert Walker Bush in 1990, and which has been followed through both by his son George W Bush, and by both of the Clintons, but which has only recently started to become documented by leaked publications of personal communications amongst the key operatives who were the insiders running this operation behind the scenes, and who include Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, George W Bush, Victoria Nuland, Jeffrey Feltman, Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan al-Saud, Saudi Crown Prince Muhammed bin Salman al-Saud, and the Emir of Qatar.

Final Shots: the Clintons and Colombian Death Squads | Alexander Cockburn

With virtually no opportunity for the human rights community to 
respond, the Clinton administration effectively created a way to avoid the
whole question of human rights in Colombia. As 
Jack Laun of the Colombia Support Network said bitterly, “This unilateral 
interpretation trivializes the role of Congress in allocating funds and undermines
the work of countless human rights organizations that have testified time and
again to the need to consider human rights abuses in Colombia.”

PUTIN TRUMP CONSPIRACY SITREP: The Battle of the Conspiracy Theories

The Trump strategy is devastating. First, Trump addicted the entire media to “Trump Scandal” clickbait stories. Now he has completely turned that bitch out. In one of the greatest Mack games of all time, Trump has the whores in the Liberal media turning tricks for him. Rachel Maddow thinks she is sucking Joe McCarthy’s dick in a filthy urinal for Hillary, but in reality she is sucking it for Trump!

Trump, fascism, Putin and Wikileaks: the anatomy of a liberal nervous breakdown

This inability of liberals to understand the necessity of antagonism in politics and Trump’s mastery of psycho-political warfare could cost Hillary Clinton this election. While Trump’s own combustibility is overshadowing the entire campaign, it is far too close for liberals to convincingly argue that they are a bulwark against fascism. The polls and the electorate have been extremely volatile; the great wonk oracle Nate Silver has gone from declaring Trump an impossibility for the nomination to having a 40 per cent chance in the general. If Clinton limps to the finish line, liberals will undoubtedly draw all the wrong conclusions about their anti-fascism and the vigor of technocratic centrist politics.

The Director of the CIA and the future of Syria | Colonel Cassad

In response to this increased confidence in the Assad forces, the US hinted that if Assad and his allies will try to resolve the matter by military means, the United States will act to partition Syria in the interests of the groups that it supports. This applies both to the part of the “green” groups that have external channels of supply, and the Syrian Kurds, on which the US has obviously bet. Hence the message to Russia that the United States should put pressure on Assad and force him to abandon his ambitious plans and in General to force him to leave if the United States can not.

Russia Is Reportedly Set To Release Clinton’s Intercepted Emails

Reliable intelligence sources in the West have indicated that warnings had been received that the Russian Government could in the near future release the text of email messages intercepted from U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server from the time she was U.S. Secretary of State. The release would, the messaging indicated, prove that Secretary Clinton had, in fact, laid open U.S. secrets to foreign interception by putting highly-classified Government reports onto a private server in violation of U.S. law, and that, as suspected, the server had been targeted and hacked by foreign intelligence services.
