IN A trenchant, unapologetically centrist Essay for The Economist Barack Obama has urged the next president to shun the “crude populism” being peddled by both the right and the left, and to ensure that the American economy remains open to the world.

 

 

In what is, in effect, an open letter to his successor on how to navigate a time of voter rage, Mr. Obama argues that politicians calling for “anti-immigrant, anti-innovation protectionism” are forgetting an all-American principle—that when businesses remember the common good as well as profits, and free markets avoid unhealthy concentrations of power: “capitalism has been the greatest driver of prosperity and opportunity the world has ever known.”

 

 

No living politicians are named, but the open letter contains unmistakable rebukes for Hillary Clinton’s recent, campaign-trail flirtations with anti-trade rhetoric, as well as swipes at those—starting with Bernie Sanders on the left, and Donald Trump on the right—who call the American economy rigged, and demand it be rebuilt. The economy is “an enormously complicated mechanism,” he cautions. Such radical moves as breaking up big banks or “erecting prohibitively steep tariffs on imports” would have serious real-world consequences.

 

 

Mr. Obama, a professorial, hyper-rational sort, does not conceal his dismay at an election season that has seen so many voters—notably working-class Americans without college degrees—rally to candidates insisting that their country is a dystopian hell of corruption and government incompetence, or promising to restore past glories. Perhaps no other country has benefited so much from immigration, trade and innovation, he notes. Yet populists are now promising “a return to a past that is not possible to restore.”

 

Indeed, in a veiled comment on the way that Mr. Trump has wooed white men and downplayed past battles against racial and gender discrimination, Mr. Obama adds that for lots of Americans, those past glories “never existed at all.”

 

With just months left in office the president is naturally keen to defend his own legacy. He duly argues that government actions in the wake of the financial crisis saved the world from a second Great Depression. But the essay is most striking for the candid advice it offers to the next holder of his office, and for the middle-path it treads between scolding elites and exhorting them to remember their responsibilities to society.

 

He even offers expressions of regret that so many highly educated youngsters—“potential physicists and engineers”—instead spend their careers “shifting money around in the financial sector”. He suggests that wages gaps were once constrained by social interactions between bosses and employees “at church, at their children’s schools, in civic organizations”—interactions that he calls now sadly rare.

Texas Newspaper Destroys The Myth That Hillary Clinton Is The Lesser Of Two Evils!

A Texas newspaper hasn’t just endorsed Hillary Clinton. The Corpus Christi Caller-Times destroyed the media created myth that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are equals, but that Clinton is the lesser of two evils.

 

[Politicususa] A Texas newspaper hasn’t just endorsed Hillary Clinton. The Corpus Christi Caller-Times destroyed the media created myth that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are equals, but that Clinton is the lesser of two evils.

 

In their endorsement the editorial board of the Caller-Times Wrote: 



She is not, as has been sold, a mere lesser of two evils. Her experience and intellect would make her a standout in any group of candidates. Like President Obama said and didn’t need to be fact-checked, she’s more qualified than him or her husband.

….

Being the only serious alternative is both Clinton’s fortune and misfortune. It increases the likelihood of victory, but also of presiding over a nation with large groups of dissidents. While voting against her can be a statement of differing principle, voting for Trump would not rise to that level. It’s not a vote for Republicanism. The Republican Party’s principles and standards are beyond Trump’s reach.

 

We perceive in Clinton the capability to bridge the divide — to define rather than exploit our problems and pursue intelligent solutions. Her “basket of deplorables” comment made the task more difficult but it was a rare lapse by an otherwise level-headed servant leader with a history of self-correcting resilience. The former senator’s Republican colleagues remember her fondly as a middle-ground-seeking master of the art of deal-making. If there is to be a return to bipartisanship, she is the one to lead it.

 

It is rare to see an endorsement in this presidential election that focuses on why one candidate should be president instead of why her opponent is unfit to hold the office.

 

Hillary Clinton is not the lesser of two evils. She has never been. When one examines the facts, there is no contest between Clinton and Trump. Donald Trump has a real rap sheet that should disqualify him from being president. Hillary Clinton’s “crimes” are conspiracy theories that have been cooked up by the conservative media’s anti-Clinton conspiracy cottage industry that has spent decades as a robust source of profit for conservative authors and media.

 

The idea that Hillary Clinton is the lesser of two evils is a lazy media narrative that was created by corporate mainstream talking heads only interested in false equivalence to keep ratings and interest up during an election. It would take too much effort for the media to discuss the fact that Clinton’s approval ratings are a byproduct of decades of Republican attacks on her last name combined with the extreme polarization of the electorate.

 

2016 isn’t a lesser of two evils election. It is a base election that may turn into a rout because Republicans made the foolish decision to nominate a candidate with a closet full of evils to run against the most competent and qualified candidate to a major party’s nomination in the modern era of American politics.

[NYT] September 21, 2016 Hillary Clinton Maintains 75% Chance Of Winning The Presidency!

Every day Hillary Clinton proposes realistic proposals in Factual Policies to help America, the American People and the World, that would make better lives and better tomorrows for all.

aaliphotos-197

Every day Donald Trump and Sons insult, denigrate and permeate so many lies that not even the Fact Checkers can keep up with. It is vividly clear that the only knowledge Donald Trump possess is being a professional Con Man, Conning People and Wrecking lives with his Bigotry, Fascism, Racism, Misogyny and concocted internecine fantasies.

 

Today, September 21, 2016 we are only 48 days away of making the biggest decision for America and the world. Do we want to continue the Progress President Obama and his Administration have achieved over the past 8 years?

 

Or, do we want to go backwards into a world that would be far worse than what George W Bush, Dick Cheney, their Administration and the Republican Congress gave us from 2001-2008?

 

There are no nexuses between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Secretary Clinton has spent her entire life fighting for others and Con Man Trump has spent his adult life robbing and stealing, promoting racism and division, to enhance his pocket of more Mammon from larceny.

 

The choice is clear and for those that claim that there are no distinctions between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, you really need to reverse the Stockholm Syndrome that have imbedded you.

 

Support and Vote Hillary Clinton for President and give President Hillary Clinton a Democratic Controlled House and Senate.

On November 8, 2016 Vote Hillary Clinton President And Vote In A Democratic Senate And A Democratic House And Place The Right Wing Controlled Supreme Court Into A Liberal Court That Works For All.

 

In every aspect of our lives, Republicans are destroying it with their self righteousness because they have sold America to the Blood Thirsty National Rifle Association And sold 99% of Americans to the top 1%.

 

The Party of Abraham Lincoln is Dead and Abe is Mourning and Groaning in his Grave as he witness how Right Wing Extremists have taken his Party and burned it into the ground. The Founding Fathers are also mourning and groaning as they too witness the abuse of the Second Amendment that is the cause of Children, Women and Men, American Blood, being soaked into the ground from the recklessness of Guns and Gun Violence.

 

Support Hillary Clinton And The Democratic Party And In November Elect Hillary Clinton As Your Next President And Vote In A Democratic Senate And House To Restore Sanity Back To America.

Mitt and Ann Romney – glowing dismay!

I take no joy in creating this photo because in life, be it sport, politics, two people applying for the same job or just about anything in that category, “one has to lose for the other to win.” And despite that reality, I always feel sad for the party that loses.

 

Mitt Romney is sort of a special case because he lied constantly; changed positions on just about everything; rude and obnoxious and his wife, always pontificating that because they are rich, somehow they are better than the people who are not!

 

But, despite that fact I have never and to this minute, harbor any animosity for Mitt and Ann Romney, but there wasn’t anything they could have said or done that would have caused me to agree with them, and as we have come to realize, so did the majority of Americans who voted for an Obama Second Term.

 

However, “a picture speaks a thousand words,” and in both of the photos, the one on the right taken during the early evening hours of November 6, 2012, when Mitt and Ann were believing beyond any doubt; Fox News, Karl Rove, Dick Morris and their own twisted in-house polling that they were going to win, you can see for a brief moment what we would have to endure.

 

 Then moments past 11:30PM when NBC called Obama’s second term victory, the photo to the left interjects the demeanors on both of their faces, permeating just how sad and down trodden they must have felt.

 

Then on Wednesday (November 14th 2012) Mitt Romney on a conference call with his large financial backers attempting to justify why he lost the election, he again blamed the American people, claiming that President Obama promised them so much and that was the reason why they went out and voted for Obama, essentially calling sixty two million people moochers!

 

Thus for me, this was the last straw; I am happy that Mitt Romney would never run for any Public Office again, saving me and millions of people, the agony of listening to the biggest liar; shyster; hypocritical and dishonest person, that has ever sought the Office of the President, thus far.

 

(I was a supporter and worked on helping to reelect President Obama for a second term and I know in my heart, Obama will serve “all Americans,” irrespective of whether or not they voted for him.)

The juxtaposition of Obama and Romney shed light on the antithesis of who really cares about America!

Mr. Optimist, President Obama, beat the crap out of the whining, Pontificating Pessimists, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and the GOP establishment!

 

The Republican paradox that giving more huge tax cuts that favors the richest two percent of Americans would somehow help the other ninety-eight percent; is incongruous.

 

We have the facts on our side to prove otherwise. Former President George W. Bush’s 2001 and 2003 trillion dollar tax cut for the rich still exists today and where has it gotten us? It didn’t create jobs during Bush’s Presidency and as a matter of fact we lost more than three million jobs during Bush’s Stewardship of the economy.

 

We are at the edge of the financial cliff and “we” must rectify by undoing the Republican’s “pledge” to the lobbyist Grover Norquist. Just imagine, Grover Norquist introduced this pledge in 1986 and it was sanctioned by then, former President Ronald Reagan. [The Republicans Greek god]

 

The pledge that has torpedoed progress for America’s Middle-Class!

 

Below is the verbatim of the pledge and I have filled it out using Paul Ryan’s name. Mitt Romney also signed the pledge.

 

“I, Paul Ryan, pledge to the taxpayers of the 1st District of the State of Wisconsin, and to the American people that I will:  ‘ONE, oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses; and TWO, oppose any net reduction of elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates.”  

 

This pledge is not for the greater good of 98% of the hard working American people, but it is about the Republicans using this pledge to sustain America’s 2% upper-class to become even richer!

 

 

 

A Vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan is a Vote for reinstating Bush and Cheney’s Policies that brought you misery!

The uninformed; the haters; the dishonest; the duplicitous; those that harbor prejudice and all Americans; the homes you lost; the jobs you lost; the savings you lost; the sixteen trillion dollars National Debt; the Iraq War; the Afghanistan War; the hope you lost; and all that you held near and dear to your heart like your children’s future, that perhaps seem like a bad dream, President Obama, wasn’t then or now, the destructive force that brought you these nightmares, that came from the Policies of former President and Vice President, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

 

Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and all of the Republicans that have fed you the dishonesty that this is all Obama’s fault, they know, you know and I for know, that this is the most brazen lie that these duplicitous Ruritans have been using to prey on your ignorance; your frustration; your hopelessness; your hate; your prejudices and all that ails you, just so that you can empower them back into White House, The Senate and The House of Representatives.

 

President Obama has kept us from going into a depression; and the job market is growing again. We went from losing 800,000 jobs per month during the last five months of the Bush Presidency and well into the initial stages of the Obama’s Presidency, but we are moving forward again, and over the past 30 plus months, we have steady job growth to the tune of five million five hundred thousand jobs. The Dow Jones that fell to 6,500 during Bush’s stewardship has rebounded to 13,000 plus; the NASDAQ is up 125% and the Standard & Poor is up 75%. The housing market has rebounded; we have created more manufacturing jobs since 1996; The Auto Industry is back and on top again, don’t turn back now.

 

If you vote your fears; your ignorance; your prejudices; your hate and contempt for Obama because he is Half-White and Half-Black and put Mitt Romney and the Republicans back into controlling your life; the truth is, within the next two years or less, “we would be bankrupt just like Russia was in 1990.

 

Your choice your vote; “make the best of it!”
