    Legacy of 1804 on Draitser's CounterPunch Radio re: Haiti, UN, Clintons #LOF1804

    in Current Events

    In Eric Draitser's own words we discussed "the political situation in Haiti today, the insidious role of the Clintons, and the historical importance of the island nation as the leading edge of anti-colonial resistance. Eric and Alice explore the electoral drama unfolding in Haiti, and what it means for the future of the country. Of course, no discussion of the issue would be complete without an accounting of Hillary and Bill's criminal exploitation of the island over the last 25 years, up to and including today. The conversation also explores just why Haiti has been repeatedly subjected to the kind of repression and subjugation it has these last two centuries. All this and so much more in this wide-ranging discussion"


    The interview lasts one hour and 16 minutes and there is a chance I will come on live during the broadcast to take questions although I cannot yet promise it for a variety of reasons. If you don't hear me chiming in after the interview is done braodcasting around 10:20, assume that I was not able to make it -- and not for lack of trying. LONG STORY.

    In Defence of Clintons Wall Street Journal and Paul Krugman

    in Politics

    He’s right that the bipartisan efforts of that era helped reduce crime enough so that policy makers can now consider criminal justice and sentencing reforms. Progressives at the time were happy to go along with Mr. Clinton’s New Democratic policies when center-right positioning seemed essential to winning the White House. But now they’re too intimidated by Black Lives Matter to tell the truth.The Black Lives Matter agitators should thank President Clinton, not excoriate him.WSJ

    It’s one thing for the Sanders campaign to point to Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street connections, which are real, although the question should be whether they have distorted her positions, a case the campaign has never even tried to make. But recent attacks on Mrs. Clinton as a tool of the fossil fuel industry are just plain dishonest, and speak of a campaign that has lost its ethical moorings.But Mr. Sanders wasn’t careful at all, declaring that what he considers Mrs. Clinton’s past sins, including her support for trade agreements and her vote to authorize the Iraq war — for which she has apologized — make her totally unfit for office.

    C.D. - Mass Incarceration - In Defense of the Clintons?

    in Islam


    Over the past few weeks, I’ve heard grumblings about the nefarious and conspiratorial issue of – mass incarceration.

    By the name, we’re to believe that over the past decade or so, the government, via the Crime Bill of 1994, have effectively enslaved untold numbers of primarily, black men.

    To that point, Barack Obama has made it a point, via executive orders and the DOJ, to allay this, by lowering the bar, if you will, on the classification of crimes, for which one can be sent to prison – his “black issue”.

    So draconian are these laws, that black people were being sent to jail, for “just having a joint”.

    I’ve tried my best to process all of this, but sorry, I DON’T BUY IT!

    For one, “what do we mean by mass incarceration”?

    A plan to send waves of black people to prison?

    Maybe, black people, men in particular, are being sent on Trumped-up charges (oh-oh, I might have inadvertently provided political ammunition to Hillary!)

    OR, is it possible, that those arrested and convicted, were actually guilty of the crimes they were charged with?

    Why is Bill Clinton only recently, backtracking on a bill he signed into law, claiming that he made “mass incarceration worse”? Is he really that shameless and desperate, just to help his wife? (hint: YES!)

    This Saturday, I want to understand this thing called “mass incarceration”.

    What it is, what it isn’t, and I know that some of you will refer to The New Jim Crow, which I get the sense, is nothing more of a commentary, to support one, big “pity-party” for black people.

    Then again, I thought the Crime Bill was predicated on the issue of rising violence, which definitely plagued the black community.

    Then again, maybe I’ve got it ALL WRONG!

    143 – GOP Finally Backs Trump, Muslims Rape Europe, Clintons Release Trump Poop

    in Politics Conservative

    Well good old Bob Dole, the senator that never saw a tax hike he couldn't vote for, was dragged out of retirement this week. What was the big event for him to come out for? It was to let us know that Trump would be better than Cruz. The old line party crusties are scared to death of Cruz because he won’t make crappy deals with democrats that hurt our nation. They think that since trump is a businessman that he will. I hate to tell them that they are wrong. His business will be that of the USA and so he will NOT make crappy deals either. It appears that the army of moslem “refugees” are hell bent on invading Europe and one of their tactics is rape. NICE…Who would have ever thought that would happen? Also, the Clintons are releasing information about their dealings with Trump due to a FOI request…Yeah right!

    Government reprogramming for trans phobic teens? - The REAL Clintons!

    in Politics

    Hr1  Xander Gibb joins Joe to discuss all the crazy social issues of the week.

    Kim Davis is she right or wrong! Kids who walk out of school because of transgender

    Student using locker room need reprogramming?

    and more!

    Hr2  Scott Wheeler author, journalist and producer has been following the Clintons for many years, tune in and get educated!

    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

    If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you! 

    It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
