2016: Media Backs War Candidate But Wall St. Divided On Building Up US Instead As China Rises

DESCRIPTION:
But for media management, election 2016 would be a playing out in public of indecision within the ruling rich 1/10th of 1%, whether to switch to less profitable investing to build up USA, or continue wildly enriching themselves in wars & investing in higher profit rendering low wage 3rd world nations, at the same time helping these nations, led by China, to overtake the US & Europe in economic and political power sooner.

Cracker Jacks

This election is like opening a box of Cracker Jacks.

 

God only knows what Trump might do.

I take that back, God doesn’t know, and neither does Trump.

In the contradictory and bizarre word salads Trump serves up he is liable to say just about anything. In his speeches and tweets, he often starts with “a lot of people say,” followed by looney tunes claims and ending with, “you can look it up on the Internet.

However, I don’t believe he’d lead us to war.

David Schoales, Mollie Burke

I have favorite candidates for every office on the ballot, but the two for whom I feel greatest enthusiasm are David Schoales for Windham County Senator, and Mollie Burke, Brattleboro District 2 Representative.  

For years while the Clark-Canal Summer Program was going, as a volunteer, Mollie Burke taught art to neighborhood children. Hardly anyone knew about this: She did it solely because she is a good neighbor with love in her heart. Mollie talks with neighborhood people all the time, not just when electioneering. She is approachable, intelligent, responsive. We are fortunate to have an effective representative in the State House, and it is going to a pleasure to vote for her.

Who's It Gonna Be?

With less than four days to go until Election Day, now seems like a good time to get our predictions in as to who the winner will be.  Which of the two dubious candidates placed before us for our consideration will be the next president?  

Will it be the evil Donald Trump, hated by the media and good people everywhere?  Or will it be the beleaguered anti-Trump Hillary Clinton?  I know who I think it will be and will post my prediction below.

Who do you think will win the American presidency — and why do you think that?

Proof US Allies Saudi Arabia & Qatar Fund & Equip ISIS All Along Not An Election Issue

DESCRIPTION:
Wikileaks' released emails prove Hillary knew US close allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar were funding/equipping ISIS while Americans were also being murdered by ISIS, show her pretending Saudis and others were not from the beginning part of US conspiracy to create a fanatical Islamic state in order to destroy Syria and the Shiite government in Iraq. Why this is NOT AN ELECTION ISSUE

Clinton Emails

Here's a link to an Alternet story that came in last night, Oct 29th.

The story points out a couple of times that it is not known what is in those emails.  Nor how many there are.   Here's another article I pulled off the net on Huma Abedin.

Should we assume that Abedin was sharing a computer with Weiner?  Given that Abedin was the closest advisor to the Secretary of State would she share a computer even with her husband?  If they had their own computers is it possible that Weiner knew his wife's password and stole the emails?  Could he be the kind of guy that wanted something that he could use to blackmail for protection?
