A Strategy Going Forward-Hillary Clinton and the #MuellerReport.

The long-awaited #MuellerReport has been released!

Last week short a day, the long-awaited #MuellerReport came out. Thanks to our crook of an Attorney General, William Barr, it was heavily redacted, almost to the point of being a blatant coverup; actually, we can scratch almost. The Republicans have gone for a very, very huge and gigantic coverup, in fact, if we’d like to borrow language from the man who made all this necessary to begin with-Donald Trump, the illegitimate and babyish forty-fifth president.

For one thing, Trump’s lawyers got to see the special counsel Office’s report before Congress did.

“Earlier this week, the president’s personal counsel requested and was given the opportunity to read a final version of the redacted report before it was publicly released,” Barr said.

Unfortunately, by now, this feels like standard operating procedure. There are dangers in becoming desensitized to the corruption emanating from our government’s current operators.

A note from the editor- Millennial Democrats has been all but on hiatus, as I’ve processed this report, which is all but cataclysmic for Trump. Of course, he is claiming it exonerates him; that’s what he does. But five obsessive devourings of the document later, I can now say with a thorough degree of confidence that that report is damning for Donald. Utterly damning. It reads like a recipe for impeachment. The only real question is, what comes next?

The first paragraph of the Report is a few words about rules and regulations. It really begins with the first sentence of the second paragraph, in which Mueller is seen wasting little time.

“The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion.”

This we know. Any cyber-activist who was online even in 2015 could tell you there was something going on. By 2016 it was obvious and ugly. People rolled their eyes at us because they didn’t want to believe it.

Now those people are staring down the barrel of 448 pages of evidence, compiled by the best legal minds in all of America, where every form of excellence finds its home.

It later concludes that the Trump Campaign team “expected to benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts”. The Report is arranged into two volumes, the first outlining the actual Russian interference into the 2016 United States Presidential election and the Trump Campaign’s involvement with it, and the second addressing the case for obstruction of justice.

In the end, Mueller’s team seems to have concluded that as Trump is the president, it wasn’t their legal right to charge him as that would be going against Justice Department regulations. This was never going to end with the Oval Office raided and the country’s leader dragged out in handcuffs. No matter how much Trump as a person is repugnant, that would have been devastating for America.

Mueller’s strategy is different.

A very serious set of crimes has been committed here, and no mistake. Mueller is very clear on that point. “First, the Office determined that Russia’s two principal interference operations in the 2016 U.S. presidential election-the social media campaign and the hacking-and-dumping operations violated U.S. criminal law.”

Partisan considerations ought not to have a say in this at all. Russia is our worst enemy, they hate us more than anyone. Only the Republicans don’t want to act like they know it, because they want to pose it as necessary to resist the rising tide of socialism in order to beat us. They have nothing else to hold on to, which has made them desperate. Desperate people do reckless, stupid things. They will not act with honor as the Republican-led Congress of the Nixon era did.

I’m proud to say that the best solution yet has been proposed by our candidate of choice in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton.

“Our election was corrupted, our democracy assaulted, our sovereignty and security violated. This is the definitive conclusion of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report. It documents a serious crime against the American people,” Clinton explained in opening her letter. “The debate about how to respond to Russia’s “sweeping and systematic” attack — and how to hold President Trump accountable for obstructing the investigation and possibly breaking the law — has been reduced to a false choice: immediate impeachment or nothing. History suggests there’s a better way to think about the choices ahead.”

This is an excellent point and even more proof of what we’ve been saying all along- that Hillary’s loss in 2016 was really America’s.

As the Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi said a while back, Trump isn’t worth it.

Pelosi’s reasoning is sound, and she is our Speaker of the House. We will follow the national leadership on it because we realize we’ve got to pull together in this time of total crisis. The point is getting rid of him a year early isn’t enough incentive to rip the country apart again as Nixon’s corruption did back during Watergate, and as the Republican-led right wing did when they attacked Bill Clinton for very little. But Speaker Pelosi’s words back then were spoken before the release of the special counsel’s conclusory findings. Things may well be different now, and although it is a big step, it has to be considered seriously.

That report is not only a disaster for Trump. It’s a disaster for America.

The Russians got away with it, and that is sickening. Trump continues to carry out their agenda by continuously slandering the special counsel and us Democrats. He has done nothing to protect us from the Russians, which of course is leaving us open to every other major power in the world as well.

China has been massing on the South China Sea; it is said they may be planning a pre-emptive strike on our bases out there. It was actually the experience of running this website that taught us just how much an enemy we have in the Chinese.

For every attempt to hack in here the Russians have made, the Chinese have made at least ten.

The Chinese have 1.43 billion people living in their country, and every one of them has got the time to try to hack Millennial Democrats, it seems some days. You would not believe the amount of emails I’ve got saved up from my Sucuri plugin, awesome creation that it is. WordPress is great, as are most of the companies they partner with.

The reverse IP trace feature used by the program lets me know where they are from, which is how I ended up doing the research needed to learn Trump has a huge following in China, whose people are contemptuous of anti-Trump resistance. They refer to us in racist fashion as the “white left“, even though the base of the Democratic Party is largely multicultural and far from exclusively white.

What a pain in the neck. The Chinese, no less. This isn’t even their fight, but they’re flooding into the country’s cybernetics all the same, in the absence of a funded cyber-defense force. If you look at it from their point of view, why wouldn’t they? America is on top, and the Chinese can hardly be blamed for wanting to take our place. They sure have more a chance at that then Russia does. Soon other powers will rush to join in too, and it’ll be nothing but chaos on every wired circuit in America. I’ll have pictures like those above from every single corner of the globe.

Every bit of this the fault of Donald Trump, who is still butthurt about his election as totally illegitimate. His juvenile contrarianism has him utterly resistant to facts; he is, after all, a Fox News devotee. He is therefore not in a rush to fix even a single one of his mistakes. So while we’re not advocating a rush to impeachment proceedings, we certainly don’t feel like ruling them out.

I personally would have liked to see a lot more about Bernie Sanders in this report. It was never really about Trump himself. It was about the Russian interference into our election that concerned me most, not just taking down Trump. The Sanders campaign was no less culpable, no less infested, and no less managed by a former employee of Vladimir Putin’s, Tad Devine, who worked for him by proxy under Paul Manafort in Ukraine. He was the first witness called at Paul Manafort’s trial. He should have had his own.

At the end of the day, before we start getting into details, it’s good to keep in mind our long term goal, which is ensuring the welfare of America. This was done for the American people. It was about ensuring the sanctity of our political system.  There was more going on here than taking down Trump, although of course, that would have been nice. The guy really is an incompetent crook, which was my original problem with him, but this has gone so far beyond that now that it’s almost beside the point.

In accordance with Hillary’s plan, we’re going to be pushing for the following.

First, we want to see our Congress hold public, televised hearings on the matter, hearings designed to raise public awareness about what happened in 2016 and to fill in the gaps of the Mueller report. During Watergate, just like now, there was an investigation into the matter that found evidence of corruption and cover-ups. The purpose of the hearings is given by the former First Lady below.

“The televised hearings added to the factual record and, crucially, helped the public understand the facts in a way that no dense legal report could. Similar hearings with Mueller, former White House counsel Donald McGahn and other key witnesses could do the same today.” -Hillary Clinton.

Second, we want to substantially increase pressure on Donald Trump and the other Republicans to get busy protecting this country from anything like this being able to happen again. Kirstjen Nielsen, Trump’s recently departed secretary of Homeland Security, tried to prioritize it and was told to not even mention it around Trump. Later she resigned in disgrace before she was fired. This cannot be allowed. We have to be able to expect better from our leaders.

Third, we want to start moving forward together!  In terms of the economy, health care, climate change, and every other issue of importance, we Democrats have always had the answers in terms of how to run the country. They’re all right there in the 2016 Democratic Party Presidential Platform. But we have got to get out there and make our case.

“For today’s Democrats, it’s not only possible to move forward on multiple fronts at the same time, it’s essential. The House has already passed sweeping reforms that would strengthen voting rights and crack down on corruption, and now is the time for Democrats to keep their foot on the gas and put pressure on the do-nothing Senate. It’s critical to remind the American people that Democrats are in the solutions business and can walk and chew gum at the same time.” -Hillary Clinton.

We have to get this right, as HRC said. The stakes are too high. Mueller’s report has left lingering questions behind in its wake, and the importance of answering them has not diminished. We have got to find a way to solve these problems, move past this whole disaster, get our country back, and take the proper steps to make sure that nothing like this can ever happen again. Going forward, we can help to do it all by raising awareness. In the upcoming series of articles, we’ll be analyzing thoroughly the Report’s contents. A firm understanding of it will help us find the right way to go on this. In the end, perhaps it will be best to keep it simple.

Just trust in Hillary.

#WeStandWithIlhan- This Time.

#IStandWithIlhan- this time!

Our illegitimate forty-fifth president on Friday gave us a sneak preview of his re-election strategy for 2020, when he went after Representative Ilhan Omar for the now-infamous remarks she made not long before during a speech on civil rights and Muslims in America. His tool was a visceral video of the burning World Trade Center towers taken back in 2001. He tweeted it to millions of his followers, which some have argued was an act that may have put her life in danger.

From where things stand today, it seems clear that the political momentum of America is going strong in favor of the Democratic Party. Donald Trump has been a complete disaster for the country, as everyone knew he would be, and it’s all but certain we’ll correct our mistake very soon.

It is, therefore, completely unsurprising to see him grab onto something one of our Democratic leaders have done and begin to fashion a weapon with it. Of course, he is doing this to try and deflect from his own endless blunders and crimes. But that doesn’t help us answer the central question.

What about what Ilhan Omar actually said?

In opening this discussion, we would like to make it clear that Representative Omar is someone we would like to support. She has not been a pest like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who really likes attention, and figures the best way to get it is to go out of her way to be an enemy to good Democrats. I have written good things about Omar since the day she was elected.

She isn’t one of the usual Bernie Sanders suspects, nor is she a socialist, or any of that. This isn’t about that. It’s that we’ve got to cut down on the amount of just dirt that can be slung at the Democratic Party, which means holding our leaders accountable when they start jumping off the deep end. Youthful errors happen. It is not too late for Omar to turn back.

But lately, there has been a lot of trouble.

Recently, conservative Laurie Cardoza-Moore, an Evangelical leader who hosts the popular Christian television program Focus On Israel,  said on Wednesday that “while she has already established her credentials as a vehement antisemite, Ilhan Omar is far worse than that.”

That has not been proven true, and we’re inclined to believe that it is not, although certainly that hasn’t been proved either. What is without question is that she’s a representative of our country now, a person at the highest levels of the government of the greatest superpower in the history of mankind, the United States of America, and she’s been giving Trump a lot of dirt against us. This has to stop and fast.

“Omar may be in violation of a federal statute for fundraising for two Muslim Brotherhood charities that seek to destroy America,” she claimed. The Jerusalem Post wrote an article entitled “Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is calling for the release of a terrorist.”

The Jerusalem Post is a highly reputable organization operating in the territories of one of our closest global partners, Israel. We deeply respect them. It’s the most commonly read newspaper for Jews who speak English and has been around since 1932. If they thought enough of it to publish an article of concern, it is going to be necessary to give the matter a good close look.

According to Cardoza-Moore, whose show reaches literally two billion viewers weekly, the recent revelation of Omar’s participation as a keynote speaker at events for Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated groups Islamic Relief USA and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) “suggests her support for subversive factions aligned to destroy America and Western civilization itself.”

From the article- “On her Twitter page last week, Omar demanded that US President Donald Trump push for the release of a senior member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, Hoda Abdelmonem.”

That is a far bigger deal than what Trump is tweeting about, and that is what our issue is. This is not about Omar’s policies, or her religion, or her hijab, or her friends. Asking for leniency on behalf of that terrorist, even unofficially, is crossing a big line.

She will rapidly lose her support among Americans if she keeps on like this.

It is very important that she quickly correct her course. She must understand after this that she is now a Representative of the United States of America, the greatest country in the world and that as such, what she does will tremendously affect everyone around her. She did not quite use her position in an official capacity, she did it using her personal Twitter account, but just the same. It’s unacceptable, and she should have known better.

Her advisers should definitely have known better, and of course, they did. They knew exactly what they would be doing, and they knew it would put Omar at risk, and they still used it. She is mixed up with rough customers, and that’s the part that’s really troubling.

We have to make it clear these people are not her only option.

None of this is a conspiracy theory. Omar might not be a Muslim Brotherhood member, but she is spending a lot of time around CAIR, which has been found to have ties with the Muslim Brotherhood. Worse, it has close ties to Hamas and Hezbollah, who are downright terroristic.

As an aside, this is one of the dozens of things we’re objecting to in the case of Tulsi Gabbard.

Last month, Omar keynoted an Islamic Relief USA emergency fundraising dinner for Yemen in Tampa, Florida. Later this month she will be a keynote speaker at a CAIR fundraiser in Los Angeles. She’s hanging out with these people all the time, they constitute her biggest support.

Most of us will remember well the trouble over the Women’s March last year when it was found out that the person organizing it was foul-mouthed and anti-Semitic political activist Palestinian Muslim-American Linda Sarsour. She got ahold of the Women’s Convention and tried to make Bernie Sanders, who has a record on women right up there with Donald Trump’s, the keynote speaker.

When American women found out about that, there was an outcry unlike anything you have ever seen unless you were there, and St. Bernard the millionaire backed out as fast as his legs would carry him, but that too is another story.

Suffice it to say that after that incident, Sarsour and CAIR were on the radar, and not as friendlies.

At the same time, however, you’re not who your friends are, or at least, not completely. It seems important to point out that Representative Omar is not Tulsi Gabbard. Omar came up on her own. She does not come from a wealthy community of emigres, nor do her parents have money, back home in Somalia. Her mother died when she was two, and her father drove a taxicab-as do many of the smartest people ever met by this Millennial Democrats contributor. There’s just something cool about taxi drivers.

We consider it critical that we carefully monitor our own back yards, and take note of disturbing trends within them. And just as the Justice Democrats always say, it’s important that we hold our leaders accountable and ask that they explain to us their actions and philosophy.

The way that Donald Trump is going after her for this is wrong, but it’s a big exaggeration to say she didn’t make a mistake. She absolutely did make a mistake. “Some people did something” is not an acceptable way to address the most lethal terrorist attack in America’s history, something that has left a permanent scar.

If Omar wants our support, she needs to desist in this vein at once, and from this day forth utterly repudiate terrorism.

As a wise woman once said, we must react the same way as if we found evidence of one of our leaders supporting a white supremacist group.

It couldn’t be less important who the terrorist is, what they’re for, what color their shirt, skin, cause, it doesn’t matter. Civilization demands that we come together behind fighting this type of attack with a united resolve.  If we cannot come together behind not cutting slack to those who murder for shock value, then on what can we come together?

All of these factors caused us to conclude that this incident requires direct addressing. It is not enough to point out that Trump is trying to deflect from his wrongdoings and outright crimes using Omar, which undoubtedly he is.

We wish to state clearly that this is not an attack, it’s just the opposite. We do stand with Ilhan, it’s more than just a hashtag for us. She is a Millennial Democrat. She is also someone who rode into office on the Blue Wave that we fought so hard for, in the Year of the Democratic Woman that we lauded.

But even as we hold our hands out to Omar herself, we recognize the importance in a proper observation of this troubling new trend, and we wish to express our ardent hope that Representative Omar will awake to the harm she has done recently, to herself and to the cause, and turn around before it is too late.

At the end of this long discussion, our clarified message is this. In the name of giving somebody the benefit of the doubt, we are proud to concur with many of our fellow Democrats and say that we do indeed #StandWithIlhan. We stand with you, Representative Omar-
This time.
Our message for Ilhan Omar is this:
What Trump is doing is despicable, and we’re not going for it. You’re a Democrat and a Millennial Democrat, and we’re here for you. National leadership has been here for you, and we are going to follow suit with a full heart. But by that same token, do not play us for chumps, or take our support for granted.
We are not going to slither on your behalf or anyone else.
We’re not going to equivocate or change the subject endlessly. Do not put us in the position of having to become apologists for CAIR and Hezbollah, because we’re not going for that either. 9/11 was the greatest tragedy in the history of all America. Please pay credence to this fact, and show respect.
Six floors below Mr Reyher, James Logozzo watched with stunned colleagues from the Morgan Stanley boardroom. He recalled that it took three or four jumpers to flash past him before he realised they were people. Then a woman fell, lying flat on her back and staring upwards. ‘The look on her face was shock. She wasn’t screaming,’ he recalled. ‘It was slow motion. After she hit the ground, there was nothing left.’

For those down below, the bodies landed with sickening, almost explosive thuds. Many said it was raining bodies.

One fireman, Danny Suhr, was killed as he made his way to the South Tower after a jumper landed on him, ‘coming out of the sky like a torpedo’ and breaking his neck. Compounding the tragedy, the priest who gave him the last rites was later killed by falling debris.

Learn from this mistake, Ms. Omar. Take a few minutes to actually watch those videos Trump tweeted, horrendous as they are. Take in the sight of our beautiful Twin Towers falling, and take note of the girl around your same age who had to choose between burning to death and falling off the top of that vast skyscraper. More than two hundred people jumped to their deaths that day.
Watch carefully as she stretches her arms outward, acceptance on her face, and falls, a person, just like all of us.
Maybe she would have run for office someday. Unlike you or me, however, she never got the chance. Please let the real meaning of that sink in, and realize thoroughly the importance of being more sensitive. Terrorism is an unthinkable evil. Show us you are here to help us fight it.
Do this, and we will forever #StandWithIlhan.

Bernie Sanders, Anti-Capitalist Crusader, Is A Millionaire.

Bernie Sanders, Anti-Capitalist Crusader, Is A Millionaire.

Bernie Sanders is a millionaire, we found out yesterday.

A millionaire. Bernie.

Man of the little people, champion of the working class, prince among average Joe’s, and so on, Bernie Sanders is a millionaire.

Let that sink in for a minute. This is the same guy who insisted Hillary Clinton was “too insulated” by her vast wealth to be able to connect to the voters. In the wonky world of Bernieland 2016, having done well for yourself was little short of a crime, and certainly should preclude you from participating in your political system. He refused to show his tax returns back then because it would have crushed this narrative, although those who were involved in the process of vetting Bernie certainly were aware that he was worth over a million even back then.

Weeks after Bernie lost, while he was still moping over the landslide defeat he suffered at the hands of the Clinton machine, he decided to console himself with a $700,000 house on the scenic shores of Lake Champlain.

How many working people do you know who can afford to do that?

Actually, working-class hero Bernie never even had a job at all before age forty. The position he applied to required an election. The first time Bernie was ever on a payroll, it was as the mayor of Burlington, Vermont.

That was also the first time he ever voted. He boasted about it in an old interview with Vermont college newspaper The Gadfly.

Bernie Sanders never voted, until the day he could vote for himself.
Bernie Sanders never voted, until the day he could vote for himself.

When taken as a whole, a neutral observer will not be able to avoid raising an eyebrow at the sheer hypocrisy required to claim you’re a member of a people when you have thumbed your nose at everything we do.

Bernard Sanders rejects everything. There is not a thing in American culture that he does not drag through the mud. We can look at literally any aspect of his life for a few examples

Fashion standards are out; see that blue clown suit he wears around.

The term “Progressive“, when applied by him, means nothing to do with making progress. It means being grumpy and inflexible.

Our system of government is worthless, broken, and without value, where Bernie is concerned. He wants to smash it all to pieces and rebuild the remnants in his own image, like other socialists like Josef Stalin have done, and he points to Norway and Sweden as the reason why. It’s just unbelievable.

He knows perfectly well there’s no such thing as socialism in Norway and Sweden, but he deliberately clouds the issue by switching around the words in “Social Democracy” (a highly viable and effective form of government), conflating it with his beloved “Democratic Socialism” (a nonexistent wish list and Stalin), because he knows Americans rightly abhor socialism and that throwing around the word will cause arguments and rancor.

Then he’ll get to be the center of attention. We all know a hipster or two who goes around talking about the “masses”, meaning anyone he doesn’t think is as smart as him, which is everyone.

The president of Denmark straight up told him he didn’t understand their system. He also said to Bernie that he’d had enough of his socialist “slurs”. Unsurprisingly, Bernie ignored him. It’s the same as carrying around the proverbial picture of Chairman Mao. You ain’t gonna make it with anyone anyhow, Bern. The Beatles tried to tell you.

It doesn’t matter what its merits are; if something is beloved of Americans, it’s worth taking a swipe at. That is why Bernie said that John Fitzgerald Kennedy made him nauseous.

Bernie loves, above all else, to attack the free market society that has paid for all the successes of America, which he resents because he hasn’t been part of it. He has always had a big inferiority complex because he had no real money, so all his life he has reviled and attacked those who do. That way, since he can’t join the ranks of the rich, he can at least make himself out to be above the whole distasteful struggle.

Quoth St. Bernard-

“This country does not survive morally, economically or politically when so few have so much, and so many have so little.” 

“It would, I think, be hard for anyone to make the case that the United States is a just society or anything close to a just society. In America today, there is massive injustice in terms of income and wealth inequality. Injustice is rampant.”

“There is no justice when so few have so much and so many have so little.”

What an unbelievable hypocrite.

It’s a big part of his schtick. Alone but unafraid, Saint Bernard the penniless ascetic prepares the rod of penance for the world. He’s done all right with it, too.

That is why he did not want us to see his tax returns.

Now that we know he’s a millionaire, it’s even more clear the guy is a fraud.

In 2016, Bernie had one big thing going for him. Nobody really knew who he was. People’s hatred of Hillary Clinton- who, in passing, also got most of her money, her “isolating millions“, from writing bestseller books-blinded them from looking very far past what he was saying to who he is.

That is in the past now. He no longer has poverty to shroud his incompetence with an air of holy piety. Without it, he loses the last claim he had to be something special or unique in Washington, and a much less pleasant fragrance accompanies him on the campaign trail.

Going forward, it will be up to us to remind everyone. Bernie said that Hillary’s millionaire status made her unfit to be president, knowing all the while he was a millionaire. His shamelessness and hypocrisy are boundless, and in that regard, he is no different from Trump. Hillary took her millions and started a foundation with them that now provides two-thirds of the AIDS vaccines available in the entire world.

We don’t require our leaders to live like monks, although we would not object if they did; do you, man. This is America. You can be who you want here. There’s nothing wrong at all with being a monk or a millionaire. What we do require is that they keep it real with us. Stop trying to mislead us, Bernie! You are behaving like a chickenhawk, leading astray the young! You’re not any different than Hillary Clinton except that you’re dishonest and less successful.

At the end of the day, you don’t have to lie to kick it.

A friend of mine wrote this for me, just as this article was going to publish, and the words felt so right I have decided to include them verbatim, as a blockquote, to finish up this piece with. With thanks to Ruth Satchfield of Texas.

“Why does Bernard Sanders disparage millionares and billionaires when he is one? The Gates, Clintons, Carters, Kennedys and many others have done a lot for this country and the world. They help fund research, food banks, heating for the poor in winter and clinics to give the poor health care. They are working to help Puerto Rico and Flint. What has Bernie done but rant and rave? He has the money, if he cares so much what is he doing? Where is his foundation to help the needy or the sick and starving? Where are the laws he has written and passed to help the poor and the middle class? Talk is cheap and that is all Bernie Sanders does.”

Well said, Ruth.

“Hours to Days”-Ecuador Prepares To Rid Itself Of Wikileaks Co-Founder Julian Assange!

Julian Assange is getting kicked out of his Ecuadorian embassy home!

Julian Assange, the co-founder of Wikileaks (a term he is said to hate, according to Daniel Domscheit-Berg, his old partner) is on his way to face American justice, good and hard. Ecuador is saying he broke the terms of his asylum, and in the next few “hours or days“, according to the Wikileaks Twitter account, he will be asked to leave once and for all.

Word has it they have made arrangements with the United Kingdom authorities for his arrest.

Ecuador has not independently confirmed this, but it’s certainly to be hoped that they will. No one has ever more deserved it.

That would just be where it begins, for him. Assange was indicted here in America last year, for reasons that are not known for sure and are obvious. After he gets done with whatever the British have got planned for him, he’ll be on his way here, where he will be charged with a federal crime and sent someplace to learn how to be penitent, since repentance never came on its own.

Quite possibly he could go to our dreaded military prison in Cuba, Guantanamo Bay, for being a terrorist and an enemy of the American people.

Wherever he goes, one thing is for sure. Our justice system may now very well proceed to dispense great misery on Mr. Assange, who has made his living and career out of hurting and embarrassing others.

Earlier this week, Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno said Assange had “repeatedly violated” the terms of his asylum in the Andean nation’s embassy, where he has lived for nearly seven years. He’s been in bad with them for a while, he took advantage of their kindness completely. He sued the country because they made him feed his cat! What kind of a man has to be made to feed his cat? Why not just do it?

Then again, why be Russian property? Why sell out the Western world? Why make all the days of your life about whining and malice?

Wikileaks is the organization whose release of hacked e-mails they’d illegally acquired from the servers of the Democratic National Committee spurred the supporters of Bernie Sanders to riot in Philadelphia. The entire Trump era was made possible by him. And in the end, rather than feed the cat, he spitefully let it go.

Moreno denies that Assange has the right to “hack private accounts or phones”. He has been greatly reviled for this modest request by the man whose life and freedom he is preserving. The deal was for him to sit there, shut up, think about where he’s gone wrong with his life, and above all, not intervene in the politics of other countries, especially those that have friendly relations with Ecuador. This seems reasonable enough, considering that they are a small nation, not in the least a world power. They really took a chance for him.

Latin America has a long history of resistance against imperialist powers, and Assange poses as a freedom of speech icon and crusader, so Ecuador took him in. Assange recently rewarded Moreno by digging for dirt on him and slathering it all over the news. What a guy.

Assange pretends to be nonpartisan and whines that he’s only doing his best to bring the truth to light.

The truth is that America is not perfect, any more than any other country is perfect. But it really is as my grandfather the World War II veteran liked to say, God rest his soul.

This is the greatest country in the world.

Without America to uphold it, democracy would disappear from Earth in a single generation, but let’s leave that aside for now. Even if we concede Assange’s point, and assume for a second that the service he performs is useful, wouldn’t it be nice to see it spread out evenly?

America is certainly not any worse than Russia, but Assange never has a thing to say about them. He has been sent many volumes full of dirt to dump on Russian officials and oligarchs over the years, but he never used any of them until after the 2016 United States Presidential election.

Shortly after, this changed for the first time when he released the“Spy Files Russia” dump. According to Wired Magazine, many outside observers consider the most logical explanation for them as having been an approved release direct from the Russian government, meant to defray criticism that WikiLeaks aided the Russian interference designed to help Donald Trump.

“These are tricks that the Russians were willing to give up,” says James Andrew Lewis, a senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, who formerly worked as a Foreign Service officer and an information security rapporteur for the United Nations. “I actually thought it was a bit slow and belated. They probably had to get FSB clearance to release anything and that may have taken a while. Think of it as vaudeville for leakers.”

Before that, Assange and Wikileaks had never published a single solitary document that any Russian person might consider offensive in the slightest. He had always found some excuse, proving once more what we’ve been saying for years, that in our world today, those who scream and cry about America’s bad behavior tend to be working for Russia. It is no coincidence that Snowden ended up living in Russia.

Getting back on track, the speculative cause for this most recent development probably came from years-old private photos of Moreno and his family in Europe getting circulated recently on social media. Moreno said he believed the photos were shared by WikiLeaks.

“Mr. Assange has violated the agreement we reached with him and his legal counsel too many times,” Moreno told the Ecuadorean Radio Broadcasters Association.

No doubt he has, sir. Seven years, he’s been wasting their bed space. He also sued them for requiring him to pay his own costs, unbelievably. That’s all over now.

Hours or days. When Assange walks out into the streets, he’s going to get snatched up. He is soon to find out who he’s been crossing all these years. He probably still thinks he’s going to get a pardon from Trump, but one suspects he is not to end up in a cushy Federal Prison Camp like Paul Manafort.

America has a long memory, Julian. If I were you, I’d be looking for a good lawyer.

Joe Biden Is A Good Man, Supporter of Bernie’s Slanders Does Not Change That.

Joe Biden is a good man.

When the news broke last week about Joe Biden being set on by far-left wolves over a hug, I’d have given my kingdom for a good strategy. Something like this is impossible to manage pleasantly. On the one hand, we’ve just seen the last of 2018, the Year of the Democratic Woman. The #MeToo movement won the Person of the Year award. On the other hand, Biden didn’t really do anything!

We have got to show the world we can perceive the difference between a legitimate sexual assault and-

Well, whatever this is.

For the record, at Millennial Democrats, we understand that it is very important that women be believed when they come forward with their stories.

For anyone who doesn’t understand the history behind that, it goes back to many decades, if not centuries, worth of female oppression. Symbolic of the situation were the countless rape trials in which the victim was put on trial far more than the man was, and that’s what we can never go back to. How many sexual partners has she had, how short was her skirt, et cetera. It was a sickening state of affairs, and no mistake.

Seeing rape culture wiped like the stain it is from human society is our goal, and we will fight for it with all we’ve got. #MeToo is significant, and it deserves our support.

That is why it has been all the more dismaying to see it weaponized, by the same callous right-wingers who built and have perpetuated American rape culture in the first place.

For make no mistake, this is just a hit job on the man most likely to be the next President of the United States of America- Joe Biden.

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. has been here for us for a long time. He served as the 47th vice president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. Like us, he is a member of the Democratic Party. He represented Delaware in the U.S. Senate from 1973 to 2009. He has made presidential runs before but ultimately ended up as Barack Obama’s right hand man instead, in 2008 and again in 2012.

Biden is a good man who has given his life in the service of the United States of America, and well worth supporting if he should end up being the candidate. As an aside, this article does not imply an endorsement at this time. It’s too early. But if, in the end, it is Biden, I’ll be very proud to stand behind his decades of expertise and experience.

Recently, a Bernie Sanders supporter named Lucy Flores accused Joe Biden of having given her- wait for it-

A hug.

I’ll respectfully pause here so that you can finish your horrified gasp.

Flores has not actually gone so far as to label this hug a “sexual assault” this week, claiming the hug was given on the campaign trail when she was running for Vermont lieutenant governor back in 2014.

That’s good, because even as it is, the amount of anti-Biden hatred being shouted around by Bernie’s crazy supporters is a disgrace. Making this appear to be a sexual assault, and acting outraged as though it were, is an insult to the legitimate struggles of everyone who has ever been sexually assaulted for real, from the beginning of time until now.

It is an absolutely rotten thing that this woman is doing, turning #MeToo into a poisoned dart, so much so that even her fellow residents of Bernieverse could not stay silent this time.

Tezlyn Figaro, who worked with Flores at Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) organization Our Revolution, has similarly felt compelled to speak out on Flores. From what it sounds like, she didn’t leave the best impression on her. She explained on “Fox & Friends” why she filed an EEOC complaint against her and why Biden should know his accuser is a “fraud” and a “racist”.

“You know, Vice President Joe Biden, if you are listening, you should know that Lucy Flores is a fraud,” Figaro said.

Tezlyn Figaro@TezlynFigaro
@morningmika U were right when you said shouldn’t we question political motives? Today I exposed the EEOC claim that I filed LAST year about Lucy’s retaliation efforts. After Lucy’s long history of schemes I am t/ONLY one that took legal action to fight back! @JoeNBC
Tezlyn Figaro@TezlynFigaro

#LucyFlores EXPOSED! This am on #FoxNews I EXPOSED the truth (backed up with the EEOC claim that I filed in August 2018) about #LucyFlores previous retaliation schemes. If everyone believes women then believe me when I say #LucyBLying #JoeShouldKnow #FraudAlert @JoeBiden @BillR

A lying Bernie Bot going for a Republican-style ratf*ck- Is this really still a shock to anyone?

We know Joe Biden! He is a good man, he has been a dedicated public servant. He has given his whole life in the service of this country. Are we really going to pretend like it’s okay to wipe that out over a hug? Never!

This is getting to the point of being a complete disgrace, just like it was when Roger Stone got Leeann Tweeden-a Fox News radio show host, no less- to try and call #MeToo on then-Minnesota senator Al Franken over an old picture taken on a comedy tour back in 2003 when the Iraq War was going on.

Franken resigned, too, and in my view, that was a big mistake. We needed him, we needed his voice, we needed his loyalty. They’ve been aiming to fell with snipers all the good Democrats they can, because they know we’re always going to be the ones in the way of their evil, wicked plans. At least we got Amy Klobuchar out of the deal, but still.

Tom Perez at the DNC summed it up the best. “People will judge Joe Biden by his lifetime of service,” he said excellently.

Do not buy in, America! We’ve got a guy on one hand who has treated women in a kind, gentle, and affectionate manner, and another guy who openly boasts of sexually molesting them, of using their private parts as something he can grab (to say nothing of Rape Fantasy Bernie)! Let’s make it clear to the world we can see the distinction.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the DCCC- Hope for an Alliance Rises, Fake Left Hates It.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the DCCC- New Hope for an Alliance Finally Rises.

We are extremely pleased tonight to be reporting on two things. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has excellently passed new rules regarding future party business, refusing to transact with outsider organizations who insist on attacking good Democrats in at-risk areas.

The other big news is the recent good decision of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Justice Democrats to form a good working partnership with the DCCC by agreeing that they themselves will no longer be using their power to attack good Democrats stands as an excellent example of this tendency.

It also stands as a good example of people growing up, getting smart, learning to work together so that actual progress can be made instead of just a lot of talk about it.

This, in our opinion, is a significant reason to be hopeful.

Evolution is an interesting process. As with all things, political landscapes dissolve, as Charles Bukowski once wrote, giving place to new forms of organization and new alliances. Tomorrow’s friend might well be an enemy today. New hope for an understanding with this quarrelsome fifth of our party has finally arisen.

The exact opposite has been getting portrayed by the media, however, and as a result of the prodding and attacks AOC and her friends are getting hit with, they are in danger of reversing themselves, when we had been making such progress. We should get out there and let them know that the radical loony left is not their only option.

This story began developing after the Blue Wave hit home last fall, and taught us all some new lessons about how  2018 article from SplinterNews.com-which is back to its usual tricks in more recent articles, not to get it twisted- entitled “Where Does The Democratic Left Go From Here?” We were sincerely happy to report that it indicated good things. It was looking like they actually appeared to be learning from past mistakes and have agreed to no longer attack their fellow Democrats who live in starkly red areas. We can’t lose those moderate red-state people, and we’re not going to risk them to win over the impossible. And may wonders never cease, the Justice Democrats may have seen this too.

“There was this theory of change that was along the lines of, ‘There is a lot of potential for progressive policies to win over rural whites, so we can have a night where we back true progressive in likely R or solid R districts, and the media finally realizes this is how you win,’” progressive strategist and writer Sean McElwee told Splinter. “For two years some of the best organizers I know were running [swing district candidates] Jess King’s and Randy Bryce’s and Leslie Cockburn’s races, and they all lost.”

Yes, they did, Mr. McElwee. Yes, they really did.

That aside, I like that term, thought I. Democratic Left. That makes sense and is good sound strategy. It is of the highest importance that we take every opportunity to affirm Democrats and shed light onto our good party.

At any rate, unlike a usual JD dialogue, here’s been nothing insane said so far! Who could be unhappy? Not me!

Of course, it did not take long before all their old friends on the fake left-the ones who really do just exist to make our lives harder- jumped in to start ripping them up for it.

The negative spin on this quote is due to its origin being from an article published by the Intercept, fake-left sultan Glenn Greenwald’s organization. It’s a clear warning to AOC that she’d better toe the line! Come back to help us destroy the Democratic Party, or else!

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, I ask you: When have we ever treated you with such disingenuousness? Please learn from this. Do not go back to chewing up your own! As for the DCCC primary embargo decision, please do not expect us to actively aid and do business with people who are openly trying to hurt us.

Up until now, we have never, ever had cause to speak a single kind word for the Justice Democrats, because the list of their follies and blunders comprised their whole history. I figured there was a very good chance it would be that way forever. But lately, following Hillary Clinton’s saying four words to her on Twitter, both AOC and the organization that made her, the Justice Democrats, have been acting recently like they just might be getting close to being one of us, so to speak.

We have written good things about AOC before, although admittedly at this point there has been no cause for that in quite a while- just the opposite, in fact.

But just recently, before the phony left started kicking up and prodding them to uproar, they made the one smart decision I have ever seen any of them make in deciding to come to a good-faith arrangement not to use their power cannibalistically against their own people anymore, by trying to primary out good Democrats in red parts of the country. It appears to be a possibility we will not have to engage in a death-struggle after all.

But that means we in the sane center are going to have to get out there and tell them what we want from them before they end up backing off on this and going the other way. We cannot let the fake left be the only ones with voices in this argument. The DCCC has made a good decision, and we need them to accept it and go back to work.

They’ve been talking about good work, too.

“We’re going to be heavily focused on blue districts [in 2020], but we believe these ideas resonate everywhere,” Justice Democrats executive director Alexandra Rojas told Splinter Magazine. This time, a Justice Democrat is making sense.

The tweet from radical leftist and political pundit Ben Spielberg shown above is actually a misrepresentation of what Alexandra Rojas was saying, and a disingenuous one at that. This is what they do, guys! You already know that, because you’ve been joining them for going on half a decade, but now you’re learning what it’s like to be on the receiving end.

When people start ripping you up for making sense, that’s when you know you are becoming a true Democrat! It’s your digital Red Badge of Courage.

“The answer to why not [go after both safe seats and swing seats] is that we don’t have any f*cking money to do both. We can either get another Randy Bryce or Ocasio-Cortez, and please give me Ocasio-Cortez.”, said McElwee later in the article.

On that, at least, we should all be able to come together. Ironstache? Really? Gee whiz.

If the Justice Democrats want to be real Democrats, then sooner or later they’ll have to put their formerly hateful ways behind them and come to work with us side by side. Both of us will then be strong enough to do what we’ve been doing all along-raising awareness gradually, by threading our information into logical places where it counts.

We would absolutely welcome this, and the past be damned.

These were all the things I was thinking about the other day, as I scrolled down my Twitter feed, where I came across an interesting discovery.

How interesting, I thought, that this should be turning up now!

How unbelievably interesting.

Most readers of this blog will already know who the smug fellow talking is. That’s Cenk Uygur, founder of the Young Turks radio show. He’s been an enemy all along, for the reasons we’ve already mentioned. He was one of the most powerful voices the Justice Democrats had until he was forced to resign over the discovery of sexually perverse essays he’d written in the past. He remains closely tied to their organization.

This sure has been happening a lot these past few years! That’s why Glenn Greenwald and his cronies over at The Intercept are the ones screaming most loudly that Russiagate was fake, even though it’s actually their line that is the fake narrative.

Forget it, Lee Harvey Greenwald. This guy lives to shoot down Democrats.

For the record, we still completely agree with the above words.

We Democrats have always been for progressive values; in fact, we largely created and defined them in the more recent half of the Roosevelt project that created them, first Theodore and later Franklin Delano. That has never been our issue here. The difference has always been that we at Millennial Democrats haven’t felt the need to claim we were different, or better than our predecessors in the Greatest and baby boomer generations. We remember the first with our hearts, and we still work closely with the second, and we are very proud of it.

It certainly would be nice if this leftward were actually to happen, speaking for myself, and there’s no doubt that a step has been taken.  I’ll be happy to revise my opinion if things continue on in this way. Many Democrats advocated, in 2016, for a kinder, gentler policy when it came to how to handle the pool in which the Justice Democrats were born, meaning Bernie Sanders and his screaming pack of brats.

I did not.

I thought Hillary Clinton was treating them with kid gloves and I didn’t think their conduct justified that. HRC was a very decent sort, in spite of the three decades worth of manufactured slanders that have been vilely laid upon her, and she seemed to genuinely care about what they thought and how they felt, all the way to the end.

To say the very least, in the mildest possible tone, I did not concur.

It was hard not to conclude that those people truly hated us. There is no way to overstate the hostility we faced. During the election, one of our contributors was told that they hoped she was gang-raped, due to her refusal to support their chosen master.

The editor of Millennial Democrats was written hundreds of hate mail letters, called every foul thing in the book, and falsely reported on Facebook to the point where I could hardly turn around. Yet still, I persisted in trying to reason with them and went around saying Vote Blue No Matter Who. Those efforts were worthless.

These are the reasons why we’re not taking this for granted, either. It may well be just another time they’re going to do us like Charlie Brown missing mean Lucy’s yanked-away football. But we’ve still got to try; even if we know they will just yank the ball away at the last second, we have still got to try for our kick. The stakes are that high, in 2020.

I have always believed that the whole Justice Democrats organization and its people are unbelievably foolish and stubborn and filled with juvenile contrariness. It all goes back to the landslide defeat of Bernie Sanders. They have done nothing but attack their own people, that being us Democrats, so we have rightly viewed them as enemies, kept close tabs on them, and readied ourselves to fight them as hard as we could. Trouble has been raging hot all week over this, and we’re with the DCCC ten thousand percent, just as we’ve always been.

This kind of thing has been an ongoing problem now for well over two years, just with the Justice Dems specifically. Today is the second of April, the day after April Fool’s Day, which seems like a good time to be writing about the fake left. 2019 is already a third over. The 2020 election has taken on a gigantic, all-but-apocalyptic significance, and the primary season looms vast above, like a gathering storm.

All sincere progressives, even the most radical, know that those of us who are on the left and would see us not lose everything we have fought for in terms of every progressive value there is had better come together now before it is too late. Only the insincere infiltrators who are clearly just controlled opposition

Obviously, we are not going to beat Donald Trump in this condition, any more than we did back then.

These are all the reasons why it is to be hoped for in the extreme that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Justice Democrats are sincere. We are not in any way opposed to the idea of a permanent reconciliation, or living in a world where Justice Democrats and Millennial Democrats can both rest easy, knowing one another to be Democrats in more than name only. We will once again reach forth the olive branch. Cooperation and socialism are not the same.

In the end, it seems clear that we all have the most to gain by doing what Hillary Clinton always said, and move Forward Together. A long time ago, when they came up with their insolent #WeWillReplaceYou slogan, we came up with a counter-hashtag expressing our sincere sentiments, #WeWillEmbraceYou.
It was not our most popular article, but we wrote it, and we meant it, and we’ll dust it off if we think it will be worth it. If AOC and the Justice Democrats can be won away from the fake-left Greenwald crazies thoroughly, then maybe for now, their origins don’t so much matter (although you can bet we will not forget them). If she wants to be an asset she will have to prove it, but if she does turn out to be sincere, I can promise we will thoroughly embrace her.

She is, after all, a Millennial Democrat.

Tulsi Gabbard’s Network Means Thieves, Alt-Right, Radical Left, and Terrorists-This Is Putin’s Girl.

The more we find out about the junior Hawaiian congresswoman, Tulsi Gabbard, the deeper down the rabbit hole we go.

Gabbard has something for everyone, we wrote back in 2017, in an article entitled The Tangled Tale of Tulsi Gabbard-Progressive Phony. And all of it is dishonest.

We were right up on the tip of the iceberg back then.

These days we’ve come across enough to boggle the mind.

The tangled tale of Tulsi Gabbard makes the most sense if you consider the possibility she might really be a carefully cultivated mole, used to leak data to our enemies. It would be clear that she makes for a powerful pivotal point strategically. The far right has often been able to use her voice and power to manipulate the far left.

One angry supporter of Bernie Sanders wrote the following nonsense on 7/23/17, on a thread discovered on Facebook. 
“No REAL progressive is gonna vote for more of the Clinton style, corporate special interest, Big Bank donor loving, false progressive garbage. Yet…here are the Democrats showing us early on that they haven’t changed. Ready for a repeat of 2016? Personally…I will work to expose and destroy the hopes of any candidate that the DNC tries to ram down our throats again by using Super Delegates and closed Primaries…and any candidate who remained silent against the DNC’s attack on our Democracy by rigging the election against Bernie Sanders. #Sanders/Gabbard2020 #Gabbard/Turner2020

This same unhappy person later went on to beg and plead for unity among the former supporters of Sanders- so that they will have greater success in attacking not Republicans but Democrats. Mentioned at the spearhead of this assault on their fellows in the left, is always one name- Tulsi Gabbard.

Stirred up radicals often end up signing off on very bad ideas.

Anytime they need their opposites to go along with some plot they’re cooking up, they give the job to Tulsi.

Gabbard often sounds more like a hawkish Republican than a potential future Democratic leader, much less our presidential candidate. She repeatedly blasted Obama for failing to talk about “Islamic extremism”– a phrase very similar to the pet phrase of Donald Trump, yet she’s supposed to be running on an anti-war platform? Give us a break!

Her views are often much more in line with the conservative end of our spectrum, as exemplified by her admiring relationship with Republican billionaire Sheldon Adelson-who gave more money to Trump’s campaign than any other donor in 2016. She’s also a favorite of Steve Bannon of Breitbart News fame, who arranged the November meeting between the new president-elect and the Hawaiian congresswoman. “He loves Tulsi Gabbard. Loves her,” a source familiar with Bannon’s thinking told The Hill. “Wants to work with her on everything.”

Should this fail to convince you, try this on for size?

She’s a personal head of a Koch Brothers think tank.

If only this were fake news, thought I, and quietly moved on. The place is located in the Washington, D.C.-based Catholic University of America. ReadSludge’s Alex Kotch gives us the story.

“She is one of 12 advisors of a foreign policy center at The Center for the Study of Statesmanship (CSS) was founded in 2017 with a $2.65 million grant from the Charles Koch Foundation, which gives tens of millions of dollars to American colleges and universities each year, usually to fund ideological, free-market academic programs.” 

#FakeLeftIsAltRight, as one friend of mine likes to say. Tulsi’s ties to radical domestic fascist forces are virtually endless, and they will be the subject of many future articles. As the need for deeper vetting arises, we will be here for you- and prepared.

At any rate, perhaps we can find a clue into the peculiar politics of this enigmatic woman by examining her political career helping her father. Even upon taking the most cursory glance at him, Hawaii state Senator, ostensible former Republican, and anti-gay activist Mike Gabbard is a man who has had to do a lot of reforming.

The elder Gabbard has made a career out of evasion. With reporters, with constituents, and with pretty much everyone except his daughter and his old cronies from the days of Chris Butler’s (Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa) perversion of Hare Krishna cult, he’s been dishonest with just about everyone.

His daughter has inherited his ways. It is a daily reality of life for people in Hawaii that the Gabbards are into bad things with cults (there is over a hundred pages dedicated to the Gabbard family’s activities on the Cult Education Forum) and that they are libertarian Republicans in disguise.

Today, however, I was thinking we might talk about her ties to foreign powers, the ones who provide her with about 99% of her support. From top to bottom, the people most interested in seeing Tulsi Gabbard do well outside of the country are Russia, Iran, Syria, and literal terrorist groups like the Lebanese Hezbollah, groups that are the declared enemies of America.

Hezbollah, no less!

Check this out, from the good old American Committee on Foreign Affairs, dated March 20, 2013, just over six years ago. Ironically, Tulsi Gabbard was at this meeting. She has benefited from plenty of access to the highest levels of information on the Middle East and its troubled political scene.

HEZBOLLAH’S STRATEGIC SHIFT:
A GLOBAL TERRORIST THREAT
HEARING
BEFORE THE
SUBCOMMITTEE ON TERRORISM,
NONPROLIFERATION, AND TRADE
OF THE
COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN AFFAIRS
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
ONE HUNDRED THIRTEENTH CONGRESS
FIRST SESSION
MARCH 20, 2013

Recent focus on Iran has centered on Tehran’s quest for nuclear weapons, but the Iranians and their proxy Hezbollah also use terrorism to threaten global stability. Hezbollah enjoys the full backing of the Iranian regime. The Supreme Leader and the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps direct Hezbollah’s global terror campaign. Years ago, Hezbollah was a limited regional threat. Today, it is an international movement conducting terrorist and criminal acts in several parts of the world.

Hezbollah has killed Americans! They have taken our airliners hostage, they have bombed our embassies! More recently they’ve been in the news all the time, and why? Because Hezbollah has vastly expanded. They are now an international movement. You can get their daily update if you have WhatsApp installed. They are not independent nor are they truly a Lebanese movement. They are the proxy of Iran, which is to say a close ally of Syria and Russia.

Assad and Putin are able to call them up for anything. The leader of Russia has had that power from their organization’s birth. The current world order has been where it is for quite a while, and America was just on the verge of fixing it when they managed to tip the scales on us and helping Trump the Scam into the White House. Now look where we are.

In 2017, when Assad started gassing his own people, Trump fired off a rather puny attack on them, blowing up some asphalt on the side of one of their airstrips. We covered it at the time it happened. It seemed like a put-up job; Russian planes were being kept on the other side of the hanger. But even still, good old Tulsi was right there to cry in outrage about it as if it had been Germany crossing the Polish border.

Howard Dean, the former governor of Vermont referred to her response appropriately as bizarre. “I think it’s outrageous,” he said during an MSNBC interview. “There’s a long well-known history, both in our intelligence community, Amnesty International and Doctors Without Borders. Every single one of these agencies has said that Assad is using chemical weapons. He’s a barbarian, he’s murdered half a million of his own people.”

This is more than names and T-shirt colors. These people are monstrous criminals with even more lineage and history as terrorists with Al-Qaida has! To support Tulsi Gabbard is practically to rejoice and laugh at 9/11. We are the ones who designated Hezbollah as terrorists. She is flagrantly disloyal to America and its interests.

To think of such a person being the President of the United States of America, which as my grandfather used to say is the greatest country in the world, sickens me so thoroughly that even finding words to describe it with is hard. #NeverTulsi doesn’t quite seem strident enough, but just be assured I mean it very much.

So how did we come to this conclusion? After all, when she personally met with Syrian dictator Bashar (Trump calls him Animal, rightly for once) al-Assad, who in Trump’s words is a “Gas-killing animal who gasses his own people”, it was simply on a ‘fact-finding’ trip.

Wowie, thought I, but suspended disbelief anyway, long enough to keep reading, and look what I found! The two-man escort Gabbard used on this tourist outing were both fascists!

Her statement added she and the rest of the delegation had been accompanied by two men, Elie and Bassam Khawam, who according to the Daily Beast are both officials in the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), a political party and paramilitary organization founded in Lebanon in 1932, and currently actively engaged in the Syrian civil war on the side of the Assad regime.

They’re members of an anti-Semitic, cult-like sect that uses female suicide bombers. This cult is also known for handing vicious beatings out to journalists, both Western and Arab, and for supporting-you guessed it!-. Hezbollah!

They even got their flag from the Nazis.

Nazi-like flag of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party
Nazi-like flag of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party

Gabbard refused to say at first who financed her trip to Syria, but after the outcry got a little louder, she did eventually hold a press release. At it, Gabbard told us her delegation had been “led and sponsored by” an outfit called the Arab American Community Center for Economic and Social Services (AACCESS—Ohio). No one has ever heard of it. It did one other thing forever ago, sending the equally compromised Dennis Kucinich to Syria.

Leaving Syria’s complex and unhappy politics behind us, we head now to the equally chaotic area known as cyberspace for our next clues in the neverending goal to unravel the tangle of Tulsi.

If you want to know what’s up with somebody in this day and age, the first place to look is on social media. That’s what a private investigator will do; cut out the middleman. If you want to know who their friends are, and who is for or against them, above all you’ve got to go to where our illegitimate, childish president likes to give his warped Fireside Chats- Twitter.

The significance of the immensely popular micro-blogging platform cannot be overstated, because it’s where everyone goes to talk who is really influential in today’s world. You won’t find top professionals hanging around much on Facebook-actually, that’s how Russia figured out there was a hole where they could get at us through. They go to Twitter; look for the blue check marks to make sure you’re finding verified accounts.

What’s cool about Twitter is that regular people get a chance to speak directly to celebrities and to others from everywhere on Earth that people live. Arab Spring would not have happened the way it did if not for social media, particularly Twitter. To say the absolute, very least, it’s important.

Speaking of which, please consider following us at @MilDemsAmerica on Twitter! Help us to spread the word.

Tulsi Gabbard has more than twenty thousand fake accounts that follow her around and retweet her every word, and most of her supporters are not American. We can prove it, too, thanks to analysis tools provided to us by Twitter.

"Thousands of inauthentic Twitter accounts emerge when exploring tweets where @TulsiGabbard's handle appears (large highlighted cluster includes ~20K accounts) cc: @yoyoel @delbius @vijaya" Thanks to @GeoffGoldberg!
“Thousands of inauthentic Twitter accounts emerge when exploring tweets where @TulsiGabbard’s handle appears (large highlighted cluster includes ~20K accounts) cc: @yoyoel @delbius @vijaya” Thanks to @GeoffGoldberg!

There’s a story behind every one of those little dots, every one of which is a Twitter account loving up on Tulsi Gabbard. Recently our attention was brought to a rabidly pro-Assad Twitter account entity named Sarah Abdallah, and the story around her/it is rather fascinating.

@sahouraxo is the handle she goes by, and even the most cursory glance at her Twitter feed will tell you, not a single day will go by in which she doesn’t send some sort of tweet like this one.

Lol.

Our friends, the good people, and research analysts over at MidEastAnalyst did an exceedingly thorough job putting together her background and past. Among the things they turned up was the true meaning of her handle, which language studies master and compelling journalist Joumana Gebara translated to mean something very interesting.

Sarah Abdallah: “from the heart of Resistance Camp” which means “from the Hezbollah Camp”! Clever, right? Double lol.

On the subject of Gebara, who is a truly inspiring human being, she is currently blocked by Twitter from accessing her account, because of the work she did to expose Sarah Abdallah! Please write to @TwitterSupport and tell them to give us back our hero! They’re usually a lot better about this than Facebook. Let’s give them the benefit of doubt in letting them correct their mistake; they might just do it.

The tiresome @sahouraxo aside, for she is just one among many tens of thousands, Gabbard’s a beloved figure among America’s radical left. These are not progressives, because they are too stubborn and mean and foul-mouthed to make any progress; look at what one of them said in this comment on yesterday’s article!

#AlwaysBernie Stop parading as millennials And leave it to the real millennials to continue berning your party to the ground. You are on your way out.

Not really, Crystal. Not today, and not ANY day. Our generation is NOT all a pack of Bern-crazed drooling freaks.

It just goes to show what we’re always talking about. They hate us, they want to replace us, and they will stop at no ugliness to get what they want. They’re worse than the Republican trolls, who attack the site here in maybe a one in ten ratio compared to what the neo-progressives do. And although she has about a millionth of Bernie’s name recognition, Tulsi may have more trolls even than him.

Vladimir Putin is a libertarian to the core, and that is how this all ties together. The Koch brothers love him in a sick and sycophantic kind of way; they think they are his equals. They see his wealth and power and they want it for themselves. They feel like the only thing stopping them are all the pesky regulations in the United States, and they fantasize about the day they cast them off.

That’s what libertarianism is about. Rich guys getting out of paying taxes, dumping sludge in the rivers, and stealing from everyone that’s alive. The Koch brothers and Putin are the biggest thieves there are and thick as thieves besides. The Utopian society the little anarchist guys with clothespins through their noses run around talking about will actually be one in which the rich are freely able to prey on the poor without restraint.

If they think it’s going to be egalitarian, they had better read up on what those funny guys at the Cato Institute are really talking about, and hearing where they’re speaking from.

As a wise woman once said, Putin is the head of all of this. The rest is tentacles.

Those tentacles are as international as it gets. They control vast amounts of the economies of other nations, including this one, and that means they control many of those countries’ politicians. A particularly chilling example is that half the entire economy of the banking hub nation of Cyprus has been filled with money Putin and his oligarchs have been looting from Russia and Ukraine.

They fund politicians routinely, like Marine Le Pen of France, who blatantly asked for more since French banks wouldn’t loan to her Nazi-like National Front party. Tulsi Gabbard is a softer-looking Le Pen who is in the same situation. She will lose 99% of her support the day she tries going against them, and she knows it. She is their girl head to toe. Not ours.

One of our contributors started a Facebook Page entitled Tulsi Gabbard Must Go. Great page, check it out. It’s a young page, only a month or two old, and still has less than two hundred Likes. And yet, not a day has gone by since she started it without a fake left troll coming on there and cursing and swearing and saying all types of crazy things.

They’re justifying their paychecks, but they’re also casting the silver bullets needed to destroy them. Most of them are not American. Americans hardly know who she is. She’s popular because she’s got the backing of the Russia-Iran-Syria-Hezbollah (RIAH) network.

That is the significance. This is why Tulsi Gabbard will never do or say anything remotely critical of Bashar al-Assad, or any of the rest of Putin’s toys. She also went to specifically meet with Trump just after he was elected. If she did she would instantly lose that backing because Assad is Putin’s boy. Syria is a big part of Putin’s scheme to bring about a global Russian realignment. He will stop at nothing for this.

Merriam- Webster defines the term “political operative” as a person who does secret work for a government or political organization. And no one can deny that the resume of Ms. Gabbard would be ideal for one.

Going forward, we’re going to get into this deeper and deeper. Tulsi Gabbard is so far from what a Democratic presidential candidate needs to look like that it’s ridiculous and horrifying both. It has taken on paramount importance to properly vet and expose this absolutely dishonest person. Tulsi Gabbard really must go, and we will be here to help see her off.

Bernie Sanders Hires Lineup Of Hitmen to Ruin Democratic Primary-No New Tricks For This Old Dog.

Here at Millennial Democrats, we’re not the type to rip somebody up just because they’re old, even if that someone is Bernie Sanders. Ageism sucks.

This article won’t be about making fun of Bernie’s failure to navigate a shower door correctly (forget about the White House, though) because he busted his head open on it the other day. That would be mean.

Unlike the brats in the Democratic Socialists of America or the so-called Justice Democrats, we venerate our elders. We enjoy learning from them, we listen to what they have to say, and we will do whatever it takes to secure their legacy.

Still and all, though, we have to admit one thing, at least in the case of Bernie Sanders.

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

This was the first thing that crossed my mind the other day during midterms when I first heard that Bernie hired a “Political Hit Man”, David Sirota, to target Joe Biden, the former Vice President of the United States, and a man vastly more likely to face Donald Trump in eighteen months than Bernie is.

Sirota is a Young Turks contributor, like former Justice Democrat Cenk Uygur (who was kicked out of that organization for writing sexually perverse essays). He has made a career out of ripping up Democrats, every chance he gets.

Here we go again. This is going to be the ugliest primary in the history of American politics.

This week Sirota announced to his email friends that he had accepted a job as senior adviser and speechwriter for the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). After taking the job, he spent his day deleting over twenty thousand tweets that looked like this one.

Bernie's new hitman David Sirota, doing what he does, ripping up good Democrats.
Bernie’s new hitman David Sirota, doing what he does, ripping up good Democrats.

Although he blatantly lied and said the opposite, Sirota for some time has been ramping up to his joining of the Sanders campaign.

Edward-Isaac Dovere of the Atlantic gives us the story under the headline, “Bernie Sanders Just Hired His Twitter Attack Dog”.

Since December, David Sirota has, on Twitter, on his own website, and in columns in The Guardian, been trashing most of Sanders’s Democratic opponents — all without disclosing his work with Sanders — and has been pushing back on critics by saying that he was criticizing the other Democrats as a journalist. He centered many of his attacks on Beto O’Rourke, but he also bashed Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Joe Biden, Kirsten Gillibrand, Michael Bennet, John Hickenlooper, Mike Bloomberg, and even Andrew Cuomo.

Great.

Now, the interesting thing is that Sirota, who has more than a hundred thousand Twitter followers, immediately spent his day deleting over twenty thousand tweets that show him ripping up Democrats who have disagreed with him. He took the day off work for that, and then deflected attention by saying it was really so he could care for his “sick child”.

Did he mean the Sanders campaign? “Sick child” seems to work.

Sirota is both not the first and not the most recent of the hitmen assembled by Bernie, who together will comprise one of the ugliest lineups of vicious political thugs and banshees ever assembled in the history of all the world, let alone the Democratic Party. Fake-left Glenn Greenwald’s The Intercept’s Briahna Joy Grey was also just hired on as the new press secretary for Bernie 2020 should signal to everyone what’s going on here.

Gray’s old tweets on Russian election interference have garnered negative attention, on social media and elsewhere. In one such tweet from September 2016, Gray said, “@realDonaldTrump is right. The dems pushed the ‘Russia did the hacking’ angle b/c it was politically advantageous for them. #debatenight.”

Unbelievable.

We can look at Nina Turner for another example. Bernie’s got her playing the role of a campaign co-chair. What does that say? She told all of her supporters to vote for Jill Stein in the end and did so herself, citing her extreme hatred of Hillary Clinton as the reason why.

But strangely, here’s that very same Nina Turner, asking if we’re “Ready for Hillary 2016” on Twitter!

Nina wanted a job with Hillary’s campaign. She wanted to be a top adviser and got turned down for the position. She was, in the parlance of our times, rather butthurt.

After being refused, Turner made a high-profile defection to the Sanders campaign.

Once he lost, Turner refused to support Clinton and eventually voted for Jill Stein in the 2016 contest. She said the Democratic Party may be so “corporate” that it is no longer useful. Her presence on Team Sanders signaled Bernie’s intention to get ugly, right out of the gate. They were always going to be firing their big guns at us (and not the Republicans, as always). But now with Sirota and Grey on his team, we need to understand that they have already fixed their bayonets.

Although he went around telling everyone he wasn’t going to let things get so nasty this time around, Bernie is going to go for our vitals again, just as much as he did in 2016. The difference is that he’ll be far better organized and have far more ability to rip and gouge the Democratic Party, which is his purpose in life.

Sanders’s popularity polls have drastically plummeted. He cannot win, and he knows it. But he can do damage, though, and plenty of it. His machine has been targeting rising star Beto O’Rourke for months now. Earlier this week, Beto out-fundraised Bernie in one day after making his announcement, and Sirota was on it immediately, portraying O’Rourke as the puppet of big oil and gas companies, reviling him for taking oil money.

O’Rourke had not taken a single dime from the oil and gas industry, yet Sirota claimed he was “the #2 recipient of oil/gas industry campaign cash”.

The radical left does not care which candidate might have the best chance of beating Trump in the end. They don’t care about the Democratic Party, except insofar as Bernie can grab it like a hermit crab shell and ride it to the Presidency.

If Bernie cannot have it, they would prefer Trump.

Going forward, we’ve got to get the word out and raise awareness on what absolute jackals Bernie Sanders has hired to do his dirty work. #NeverBernie. Hold on to your hats, folks, because it’s going to be a wild ride.

Russiagate and Donald Trump-What Mueller’s Report Means, and Why It Matters.

Russiagate-What It Means, and Why It Matters.

Now that the Russiagate investigation seems to be winding down, and a conviction for the illegitimate president Donald Trump is not certain to appear as the light at the end of the tunnel, Republicans are gloating and he is acting vindicated, even before the report comes out. That is their prerogative, of course. But the proof is right there in the pudding.

The right-wing gloaters who say stupid things like “Their (us Democrats) narrative is breaking down” are far from correct when they do. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see him nailed to the wall, but that sure doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be. Trump both looks and is acting guilty and scared by the Russia investigation. A series of fresh disclosures on Tuesday showed that there is every reason for him to feel threatened by the shadow it has cast over his life, business and presidency. What we seek, solid information that Trump did indeed collude, probably sits in a deep crypt somewhere within the KGB building over there in Russia.

The truth has a way of coming out, though. Trump is too stupid and sloppy to hide forever. And when you are “Individual One” on the case of someone who’s already in prison and an international pariah, there’s a pretty good chance there are charges waiting for you somewhere. It’s against Justice Department regulations to indict a sitting president. But he won’t be in office forever.

Trump’s own conduct led to the investigation and has been the chief witness against him all the while. He’s deflected, minimized, rationalized, and flat out denied his role in all this, even as he called on Russia for help during the debates and got it. Robert Mueller will soon provide the voters with the information they need to decide what really happened, and even if Trump finds a way to block it, the damage is done already. It’s been done since the day James Comey was fired. We know who he is.

Even without a smoking gun, the cat is out of the bag.

The cat is out of the bag too on Putin’s blatantly anti-American plotting. His element of surprise is gone and with it his only chance to do more than giving us a bloody nose. Realigning the world to suit Russian interests will never happen for him now. The spotlight is on and it will stay on. We know now that they never considered the Cold War to really be over, and we’re watching for their next move. They will never do this to us again.

For more than three years now, we’ve been blowing the horn of alarm as to what the Russians and other foreign actors online have been doing to our politics. From the Macedonians running the Facebook groups of Bernie Sanders to Tad Devine, Bernie’s manager, having been Paul Manafort‘s old crony and Ukrainian election fixing buddy, all of it was more real than any of us wanted to believe. Public awareness has been thoroughly raised worldwide, and that means something.

Trump has been hooked up with the Russians since the 80s, and the Steele Dossier claimed the Russians have been cultivating Trump for at least five years.-which deceased American hero John McCain took seriously enough to pass on to the FBI. Trump recently reviled him for this yet again, even in the grave.

Say what you want about Putin, but he’s the single most powerful man on Earth. He’s not just some slob like Trump. He’s not going to put years into coming up with a plan just to blow it on something as basic as a written order delivered by hand- which is what it would have taken for Mueller to take down Trump directly. We never expected we’d be able to prove that.

What we can prove is bad enough, though. Three of the top strategists opposing Hillary Clinton in 2016 had been doing Putin’s bidding in this regard for over a decade, on both sides of our political spectrum. Calling that coincidence requires a suspension of belief so enormous that the average adult won’t be able to stomach it. The eyes of the world are on it now.

So what’s it all been for? If it’s not going to end with Trump in handcuffs, was it really worth it? What comes next? These are all the questions Americans are asking themselves right now, and for once and all time, we say yes. To protect the sanctity of elections is to safeguard democracy itself.

Thirty-two people found themselves behind bars for the part they played in this, with more to come. The next time some trash can of a slob decides to get in bed with America’s worst enemy, they’ll have this to refer to when considering the consequences and weighing the cost. Most will turn back, and there will be a strong precedent to smash into bits the would-be traitors who decide to cross the line.

Paul Manafort may well die in prison, and he earned the right to. Nobody can take that away from him. Not even Donald Trump.

In the last analysis, we fought this battle for the noblest of reasons- pure patriotism. We had to be sure that Putin’s puppets couldn’t run away with the White House. The last thing we needed was a fragile, easily manipulated president allied with one of the most corrupt and brutal regimes in the world. Taking that on was the true goal, and we did it.

So be proud, Democrats! You stood up when the going was hard, you fought through some of the worst conditions anyone has ever seen, and the United States of America is better for it. In order to safeguard our rights and our democracy, the most vigorous political action has been and will be necessary. The Russiagate investigation showed the world just how vigorous we can be once we’ve decided to fight.

That alone makes the struggle worthwhile.

CBD Hemp Oil Relief for Pain, Stress, Anxiety – 1000mg

A few words about cannabidiol. Often referred to in shorthand by its initials, CBD is the second most common of the 400+ cannabinoid molecules produced by the Cannabis plant. Second only to THC in abundance, these plant-derived cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids (phyto being the Greek word for plant), are characterized by their ability to act on the cannabinoid receptors that are part of our endocannabinoid system.

That’s the scientific way of saying it works.

While THC is the principal psychoactive component of Cannabis and has certain medical uses, CBD stands out because it is both non-psychoactive and displays a broad range of potential medical applications. These properties make it especially attractive as a therapeutic agent.

Many users choose cannabis to manage their long-term health or pain issues, while others supplement daily with healthy CBD to maintain and promote their general well-being, mood and stress levels.

It is non-habit-forming and can be taken daily. It has no psychoactive properties, and will not impair users in any way.

The positive effects of CBD will be studied by scientists for as long as there are scientists, but the word is already good. A connection has been made suggesting CBD boosts the function of our cannabinoid receptors, to produce soothing, relaxing effects but nothing psychoactive that one could consider getting “high.”

In many countries, CBD is already classified as a medication due to its proven effectiveness. It is still currently available in the United States without a prescription, though, and can be acquired right here through the Millennial Democrats affiliate link to the TeraHemp.com website. Using this feature through our site means good things for all concerned! Help us to help people, and please, help yourselves.

Cannabis has been broadening man’s horizons and giving him help for pain for much longer than we’ve been writing things down for. It is representative of a balanced life and feminine energy rising in the ascendant. It is a key component of the lives and value systems of many a Millennial Democrat.
