Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 17, 2016

Much of the content of Hillary's Banking speeches dealt with foreign policy, mostly with warfare, potential warfare, and opportunities for military-led domination of various regions of the globe. This stuff is more interesting and less insultingly than the idiocies spewed out at the public debates. But its also a policy that Clinton would prefer to keep private.

Emails now show, Wall Street bankers helped pick President Obama's cabinet. We're generally discouraged from thinking that wars and foreign bases are intended as services to financial overlords, thus the need for secrecy in following Obama policy, which is a continuation of Shrub policy.

This is ugly stuff, at least as damaging to human lives as the filth coming from Trump. Yet it's fascinating that even the bankers in whom Clinton confides her militarist mania ask her identical questions to those asked by peace activists at speaking events. (David Swanson)

In public debates, Clinton demands a "no fly zone" or "no bombing zone" or "safe zone" in Syria, from which to organize a war to overthrow the government. In a speech to Goldman Sachs, however, she blurts out that creating such a zone would require bombing a lot more populated areas than was required in Libya. "You're going to kill a lot of Syrians," she admits. This is the Banker's cue to invest in the defense industry.

The possibility of disarmament, nonviolent peacework, actual aid on a massive scale, and respectful diplomacy that leaves U.S. influence out of the resulting states is just not on Clinton's radar no matter who is in her audience. Clinton claims to have told the Chinese that the United States could claim ownership of the entire Pacific as a result of having "liberated it."

What Hillary told the bankers?

She told Banco Brazil that she was for open borders and open trade.

Now, some will have you believe that the statement was akin to the John Lennon Song "Imagine" - an ideology that we can be one, at peace, as a world. Nice concept but one problem. Were simultaneously beating several countries into submission as we speak, all in the name of fighting terrorism. That and the fact that we learned this from a hacked email. now, why is it that she can't share this with everyone? why the secrecy? I think its because she means it in a literal sense and its not a long term goal but a more immediate goal considering her support early on for TPP.

None of this matters too clinton supporters they have learned to love war I have seen a few posts here that seemed rather giddy over the idea warfare.

"On Syria, Clinton says it's hard to figure out whom to arm -- completely oblivious to any options other than arming somebody. It's hard, she says, to predict at all what will happen. So, her advice, which she blurts out to a room of bankers, is to wage war in Syria very "covertly."

"Let's have a war,
So you can go and die,
Let's have a war,
We could all use the money,
Let's have a war,
We need the space,
Let's have a war,
Clean out this place

Let's have a war,
Sell the rights to the networks,
Let's have a war,
Let our wallets get fat like last time,"

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

Reading comprehension is handy around here. You should order some online.

- Hillary wants endless war?

Only the braindead think that... though it's hard to call it thinking, really.

CORKY doesn't like to go far off the script and talking points he is given, and to post about actually what the article is about would force him to go far off script that the hillary people have given him.

he will be given talking points about the article some time later in the day and he will get back at you about it

"CORKY doesn't like to go far off the script"

No he doesn't. And he doesn't like to get far from the shore either.

Deep water in troubles him.

Bottm line, he's a clown. Rogers should part ways with his dumb ass.

Hillary told Wall St. that they are the backbone of the economy.

Putting someone who beileves that in charge of our economy would be like continuing seeing a doctor after he told you that your tapeworm is the most vital organ in your body.

I'll bet Dr. Bornstein was just trying to cheer you up with that b.s. about your tapeworm.
After all, you've been riding quite a rollercoaster.
Enthusiastic Trumpeteer, now in Stein's peanut gallery.
That would be a rough ride, even for a normal.
Sorry the drugs and alcohol you've been consuming hasn't helped.
But listen to Bornstein.
He has a huge rep in the quack medical field,

It's probably not that he re-uses them but rather that he just doesn't change them except once or twice a week.

He's just too busy insulting folks here with his pseudo-intellectual cutesy writing......

I don't think he qualifies as a pseudo-intellectual anymore. That would indicate that he's putting some effort towards trying to sound thoughtful.

He's more a low effort troll these days.

Sarvis comments generally is about intellectual as the ramblings of a drunken insane man babbling to himself
