“I can see Russia from my mouse!”
People who viewed this on FOX tell me it was obvious that the interviewer deliberately interrupted Congressman Paul mid-sentence so it would seem like he was endorsing Jill Stein over Gary Johnson.
This is part of a pattern of media spin to attack Gary Johnson: he didn’t recognize “Aleppo” as a reference to the Syrian refugee crisis and civil war (which obviously most people refer to as “Syria,” since millions then had to google “Aleppo” after the story was spun); he couldn’t recall Vincente Fox’s name (though he knew the only foreign leader he admired was the President of Mexico who has spoken around the world condemning the drug war) when asked about foreign leaders he admired – and this was spun as not knowing the names of ANY foreign leaders. Likewise when William Weld said Hillary had paper-qualifications or Trump had not violated any tax laws, the press quoted these sound bites out of context as if they were endorsements.
Ron Paul: Jill Stein is more libertarian than Gary Johnson: Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein is preferable to Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson on at least some issues, former Texas Congressman Ron Paul said Monday. I said if the independents, who don’t know what to do and who should they pick, I say if you tend to lean towards progressivism and liberalism and you’re interested in expressing yourself, you can vote for the Green Party, he said on MSNBC. I think she’s probably best on foreign policy at the moment. But on Gary Johnson, he does not come across with a crisp libertarian message. Related Story: http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2584781 Paul, who was the libertarian nominee for president in 1988, stressed that he hasn’t endorsed anyone yet. I have not told any supporters who are interested for whom they should vote, he said.
A documentary opening Friday about how Bill and Hillary Clinton’s marriage has powered their political dynasty is the latest entree in a growing menu of politically charged, campaign-season films.
Clinton Inc., scheduled to open in Chicago on Friday and around the country by mid-October, casts the Clinton marriage as an unusual arrangement that allows the couple to support each other’s separate political ambitions, and find ways to use their positions to enrich themselves along the way.
Loosely based the 2014 book Clinton Inc. by Daniel Halper, a former Weekly Standard editor who now runs the Washington bureau of the New York Post, the film draws on interviews and archival footage to explore the psychological roots of Bill Clinton’s philandering. It argues that Hillary made herself and their marriage essential to his political career by enabling and covering up his affairs (a territory also explored in the Roger Stone book The Clintons’ War on Women).
The documentary is part of a growing genre of influential and successful films that criticize contemporary politics and politicians. Peter Schweitzer, the author of a book on the Clinton Foundation, “Clinton Cash,” has produced a movie version of his book which anyone can be watched for free on the website of the conservative news outlet, Breitbart.
Voters this year are despairing their electoral choices. Someone could organize a film festival for them for entertainment. Maybe throw in The Manchurian Candidate and Wag The Dog for levity.
It’s been a tough month so far for Democratic Party pajama boys.
Sissyfag, who has returned to his original legal name of Luke Montgomery, is the founder of the DeportRacism political action committee. Montgomery, a peripatetic gay rights and AIDS activist known for producing social marketing campaign videos featuring profanity, sometimes voiced by pre-teen children, had been targetting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, in advance of Trump’s appearance last night on Saturday Night Live.
In a surprise move, SNL actually made fun of the DeportRacism campaign, having comedian Larry David heckle Trump, screaming at him from the audience that he was a racist. Outside, a meager 200 DeportRacism supporters marched from Trump Tower to Rockefeller Center to protest Trump. Trump’s actual performance was somewhat wooden, but Democrats were clearly disappointed. On the Sunday morning shows former Democratic staffer Chuck Todd said Trump’s performance was “ok.” On Fox and Friends Weekend, Tucker Carlson observed that Trump is funnier extemporaneously in interviews than he is in scripted skits. Mediate reports that DeportRacism will pay up and Larry David will receive the $5,000.
But Luke Sissyfag’s continuation of the pajama boy losing streak may go farther, and may implicate the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Where the $5,000 comes from, and where DeportRacism gets its funding, is not known, as the PAC has only filed initial paperwork, but no financial reports, with the Federal Election Commission. A perusal of the DeportRacism website indicates at least two other staffers besides Montgomery, a “Miguel” and a “Luciana,” each with a unique email address. Presumably besides the $5,000 and production costs for videos and merchandise for sale on the website, these staffers are paid. DeportRacism is already tardy in its FEC filings and has already received a letter reprimanding them for not filing mandatory financial reports.
Anonymous didn’t publish another part of the article before SNL aired; part one was published less than 24 hours ago. The article, entitled “Hillary Clinton May Have Just Committed Election Fraud — And the Internet Found Out (Part 1)”, also claims the DeportRacism site was encoded with a “false flag” to make it look like Senator Bernie Sanders is behind its attacks on Trump, and that Montgomery has a history of cheating buyers out of merchandise and of harvesting emails and spamming people.
I emailed Montgomery and the other DeportRacism staff Saturday before writing this, asking for comment, and also sent direct messages via Twitter to Brian Fallon and other official Hillary Clinton spokespeople, and asked for comment. None has been received.
Luke emailed me this two days too late:

Perhaps she was some “way-yaz tye-ard” from 11 hours of testimony on Benghazi Thursday – Hillary Clinton was 50 minutes late to her rally at Market Square in Old Town, Alexandria yesterday.
Hillary’s Virginia campaign, which has been collecting the 5,000 signatures she needs to be on the Democratic primary ballot, had announced her speech for half past noon, but she showed up at 1:20 pm.
The TSA-like Secret Service metal detectors and table search gates set up at the normally open venue used weekly by a farmer’s market had been open since 11 am. Even with a two and a half hour advance, the Square on King Street near the Potomac River was less than a third full, with only several hundred Hillaryites- about 85% female and 95% white – waiting to hear Mrs. Clinton. One hefty, crunchy granola-looking woman waiting in line with me to have her purse searched told her friend the crowd seemed smaller than the weekly farmers’ markets or Christmas fair held at the same venue.
A few people left around 1 pm and a few who stayed asked the organizers for an ETA with a little grumbling. Old Town was an appropriate venue – the bulk of the crowd were Ladies Who Lunch, 50- and 60-something women, who didn’t seem to have jobs or orher commitments to get back to. One near me explained to her friends that she worked for herself and could set her own schedule.
The Market Square area (and Old Town generally) is one of the wealthiest D.C. suburban neighborhoods, a business district consisting mainly of banks, real estate firms, restaurants, boutique dress shops, and especially trade and lobbying associations and government contractors. Only 3 minutes (7/10ths of a mile) away sits the four story waterfront rowhome style mini-mansion Clinton spinner James Carville sold for an even $4 million in June, 2013 before moving to New Orleans. (It’s a lovely mansion, looking out at a bridge across the Potomac to the National Harbor resort in Maryland – I’ve been to a fundraiser there thrown by Carville’s wife, Republican Mary Matalin.) The average household income in downtown Alexandria is $146,000, over twice the Virginia state average.
Mrs. Clinton was introduced by Governor Terry McAuliffe, who took credit for new jobs in Virginia and told the small crowd that a Clinton in office could bring the same good fortune to the whole country. He failed to mention that Virginia ranks first as the biggest recipent of government contracts (Maryland is 4th and DC 5th) with over $51 billion paid for with money taxed away from other states. How that model can be generalized was not explained – Mrs. Clinton did not propose taxing Canadians to fund government contracts for all of the 50 states.
Instead, she spoke with a normal cadence, unlike her slow roll speech to the Benghazi committee, and a normal accent, even though she was technically in the south – McAullife had already received applause from the upscale audience by announcing he was the first southern Governor to perform a gay wedding. Mrs. Clinton was short on policy ideas. She told personal anecdotes about her grandfather the lace maker and about a little girl who asked her if a girl president would be paid as much as a boy president. At one point she contrasted how incomes grew under her husband “unlike now,” without noting that increasing inequality and declining incomes have been occurring for 7 years under a Democratic president and a massive expansion of government control of the economy. Obama was mentioned only once or twice, mainly at the beginning when Mrs. Clinton announced that she was running on her own, not as a third term for either Bill Clinton or for Barack Obama.
A large bleacher was set up for the media, who were about 15% of the people there, shunting most of her other supporters – and interlopers like me – to the sides with obstructed views. On a riser behind Mrs. Clinton and Governor McAuliffe the supporters picked to be their background for the TV cameras included about half of the dozen African Americans at the event. The diversity included a light sprinkling of pajama boys and gays and lesbians, if my gaydar was working, but there were virtually no Hispanics or Asians. And I think no transgenders or indigenous peoples. After middle aged and older white women, the media were the biggest demographic.
But these old white ladies vote in high percentages, and Mrs. Clinton served up a laundry list of fossilized notions that they all agree with, a subsidy for this and a subsidy for that, stroking every old Democrat button. That the American economy is collapsing under trillions in debt or that parts of the world are being overrun by savages – anti-woman savages who auction off young girls as sex slaves – because of Mrs. Clinton’s foreign policy failures, and sometimes armed with weapons paid for by the Obama regime – were among the many realities Clinton, McAullife and their fans continued to evade.
