Wow.

You know the old saying about even a broken clock being right twice a day?

Hillary Clinton has given us reason to trot out that old maxim again.

She’s too much of a capitalist. (I kid you not – don’t laugh!)

Alan Murray: You may be the only presidential candidate since World War II that actually had to stand up and say, ‘I am a capitalist.’ And you did. Did it hurt you?

Hillary Clinton: Probably. I mean, you know, it’s hard to know but if you’re in the Iowa caucuses and 41% of Democrats are socialists or self-described socialists and I’m asked if you’re a capitalist and I say, ‘Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability,’ that probably gets lost in the, ‘Oh, my God, she’s a capitalist!’

Here’s the thing, and don’t laugh at me when I say this, she’s probably right.

While Hillary Clinton may not be the face of capitalism, she’s too far to the right on economic policy for the modern Democrat Party.

Now, this doesn’t actually mean she’s a good capitalist. In fact, she’s really hardly a capitalist at all. She’s much more of a corporatist (one acquainted with cronyism), she’s cozy with Wall Street and prefers the reins of economic policy be controlled by a few politicians and their corporate enablers. Beyond that, the reality is she’s also closer to socialist than she is capitalist. She prefers higher taxes, more government control of the factors of production, and the socialization of huge segments of the market (like healthcare for example).

All of that being said, she still wasn’t far enough to the Left for the 2016 Democrat electorate. The far-left wing of the party is the base and while they may be in the minority, they are still the energy that drives the Democrats success. When she defeated their socialist messiah, Bernie Sanders, it knocked all of the wind out of their sails and gave Donald Trump a real path to the White House.

So, yes, in a way, Hillary Clinton was right. She wasn’t socialist enough for her base voters.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
