Paul “The Vulture” Singer

Paul Singer Three Dollar Bill WPFB

By Dax Snaer

After listening to his radio interview, I found this piece by Greg Palast that so intrigued me that I could not stop reading, nor could I stop the steam coming from my ears.  Another stick ’em up, black-hearted trickster intending to undermine the fair process of voting and rig the game in favor of his pick – Rubio.

Paul “The Vulture” Singer and Katherine “Purge’n General” Harris are huge Marco Rubio supporters.  Singer doesn’t “donate” to candidates. He invests in them. And he expects a big, dripping return on his money.

But why Rubio?

Because Singer’s little hatchling is doing The Vulture’s bidding already. Example: Singer has launched a murderous financial “vulture” attack on Argentina, shaking down the gaucho nation for $3 billion.

Argentina Dictator.pngHere’s the story. Decades ago, Argentina’s military dictatorship issued bonds that sucked the nation dry. When democracy returned, 97% of the banks that had funded the dictatorship agreed to take a low payment for these bonds.

Then down swooped The Vulture. Singer and his partners bought up the “hold-out” 3% for $50 million – and now Singer demands that Argentina pay him $3 billion, a 6,000% return on his “investment”—or he’ll bring Argentina to its knees.

That’s why he’s called The Vulture – because Singer has used this same junk-bond ransom trick to swipe aid funds meant for cholera clinics in the Congo. (When Palast uncovered that scheme for BBC Television, Britain’s Parliament banned Singer’s vulture fund from British courts. His operations are outlawed throughout most of the civilized world.)

But The Vulture has a problem: Hillary Clinton.

POTUS HillaryAs Secretary of State, Clinton went to court on Argentina’s side and body-blocked every ugly attempt by The Vulture to savage Argentina.

Singer is screeching.  A President Hillary would cost Singer billions. (As would a President Sanders, a stalwart foe of vulture financiers.) To counter Hillary, The Vulture hatched a Senator: one Marco Rubio. Senator Rubio has made several ethically dubious attempts to bully the Treasury and State Departments on Singer’s behalf.

That failed, so Singer has decided to put the anti-gay martinet Rubio into the White House. (Singer’s son is married to a man—but hey, to Singer, a feast of billions means more to him than family.)

Yet Singer knows you can’t put a Rubio in the Oval Office by winning the most votes.

No way. Changing demographics doom almost any GOP candidacy.

The only way to take the White House is to block the vote of millions of voters of color.

And that’s why Singer has become donor Numero Uno to Karl Rove’s operation American Crossroads.

Palast has been on the trail of racist vote suppression tactics since 2000 when Katherine Harris was Purge’n General. And behind so many of the moves to disenfranchise voters, all too successful, is the Rove operation.

Now Palast is on the hunt again, in the middle of ripping the lid off the biggest, most secretive vote suppression operation since Jim Crow was law.

Palast is in the thick of making the movie, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: A Tale of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits, about the coming attempt to swipe the 2016 election through ugly—but unbelievably sophisticated—vote suppression trickery.

For BBC Television, The Guardian and Rolling Stone, Palast has been on the beat of ballot bandits – and the billionaires behind them for 16 years. This film to be released in Spring 2016 – has one aim: to save The House I Live In, the America of Martin Luther King and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

This is not about whether Rubio or Clinton or Sanders or any other candidate should win. This is about making sure that the ballots, not the billionaires, determine the election.

Keep your eyes on the prize.  You matter.

Pucker Up and Take One For the Team

Domestic policies are the waters I swim. Sometimes, though, there are analogous similarities that put it all in a nice kaleidoscope.

It happens all the time, but yesterday, one materialized that defined the stream-crossing phenomenon.

OK, imagine I “accidentally” wander into the back room of a competitor’s suite at a Koch Brothers convention in Dallas. With a bag of recording devices. I’d be arrested. Maybe disappeared. And, I would have deserved the medicine.

But, who the hell told me to break into their hotel suite. Let me glance down and check my call log. Oh yeah.

Seeing the Persian gulf drama play out gave me the same lump in my throat.

 

US in IranWPFB

I could feel what the US troops were feeling as they were detained in those Iranian waters. But, I don’t know why they were put in that position to begin with. I doubt even they know why. Why in the hell were they there in the first place? You don’t do that on accident. Our tech is the best in the world. They don’t accidentally wander anywhere. They were ordered to go into Iranian waters — to ignore warnings the Iranians flood radio channels with.

The “how dare they arrest any American” nationalist screams aren’t even trying to report the story. Playing armchair QB discussing how the Iranians might be humiliating the Navy crew — hurting their pinkie fingers behind their heads is actually anti-reporting.

OMG, maybe the US should rip up the nuclear deal that Obummer so weakly got us into. Because, this obviously shows the world they’re not living up to their promises. And, multi-lateral shulty-lateral. Treaties are ours to do how whut we want! USA! USA!

Except, whoops! The opened diplomatic channels formed through the nuclear deal negotiations made clearing up our errs a quick cakewalk. It made sure our warriors are back in the homeland hugging their little ones.

Mmmmm. Diplomacy.

Mmmmm. Peace.

The world is changing for the better. The last thing any of us needs is a return to the dark and dangerous reign of an off-the-rails Republican regime.

You’ve Got the President in your Car. You Aren’t Going Anywhere.

Comedians in Cars Obama Title WPFB

By now, you’ve heard about Jerry Seinfeld opening his season with Barack Obama his first guest on his Crackle Network show “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” If you haven’t, and plan to, this essay only kind of spoils.  Not really, though.

This essay is just a handful of photo stills from the show. Not trying to re-tell the story you have to see, Just pretty much revisiting some of the funner parts from MY perspective that if you did see it, you’ll remember. Obama showed himself to be a really down to earth cat. You really have to see the entire show, though. You’ll get what I’m meanin’.

Seinfeld matches a car’s personality with his guest’s. Very similar to how it works out with lowly musicians getting to play the world’s most valuable Stradivarius string specimens, the cars used by the show are owned by the sickly-0-rich and loaned for the show. The owners are given credit, of course; then the cars’ absorb their famous guests’ energy. The value of this already Corvette Stingray just shot through the roof.

So, for the coolest President of all time, what car is cool enough but a ’63 Corvette Stingray. I won’t detail the thing, ‘cos you probably know, and I’ll let Seinfeld go it. Watch the show. Here are some stills just for grins:

Cruising down DC suburban wqay in the crisp winter air:

A couple shots from the side.

From the front, like looking into the face of a torpedo.

And, of course, looking right into the tailpipe, the last thing you see as it flashes by you.

CCGC Obma0dFB

Ok, the show. Seinfeld had a hard time getting the Prez to realize he was there. Dude doesn’t stop working to sleep.

CCGC Obma01FB

Got his attention and got him in the oval office. Where he immediately made himself very at home.

CCGC Obma01bFB

Miraculously, Secret Service was able to get Seinfeld enough security clearance to get POTUS into the Stingray. The agents must have been crapping themselves. Especially when Obama took the wheel.

I guessed before air that Seinfeld wasn’t getting Obama off the grounds of the White House. Turns out, he tried. No dice. Like the title of this essay, “Sir, you have the President in your car. You’re not going anywhere.” The front gate Secret Service guard was a star.

CCGC Obma02FB

Obama did manage to get behind the wheel for a bit.

CCGC Obma7FB

It was here that we learned that even when Obama tried making it out while he was driving, no dice.

CCGC Obma02aFB

Another Secret Service agent offered them assistance getting into the car they would be taking. Another guess of mine prior to air. “The Beast.” On a kind of super-tank frame that could withstend an IUD and probably a surface to surface missile. They still wouldn’t let them off the grounds.

CCGC Obma03FB

They did get to drive around the grounds a bit on the way to having coffee in the White House Kitchen made into a little makeshift cafe.

It was on this little jaunt that we learned the Commander in Chief can talk to a nuclear submarine on the way to dinner, and no, Seinfeld doesn’t get a souvenir Presidential seal for h

is back seat.

 

CCGC Obma05FB

So, they had coffee that Seinfeld made for POTUS on White House equipment. They volleyed banter. We learned that both are witty; both are funny; Obama needs anything, it’s a phone call away; and that the Prez only wears one color of boxer briefs.

In the end, Jerry couldn’t find his way back to his car and loitering became tresspassing in the garden outside the Oval Office. The Prez had to ask Secret Service not to hurt him. No word on whether or not Seinfeld took a black site trip, or not. Episode II hasn’t aired yet.

Who’s Lyin’ Now, Nazi?

Hillary Blasts Terror-Trump WPFB

Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump out for his bigoted hate speech being used by Terrorists to recruit new members.  Trump called Hillary a liar.

“She made it up.  My Hate-buddies are NOT using my videos.  They know I’d sue them for infringement.  And, anyone who knows me knows I’d sue them back to the 7th Century.  What a LIAR, Hillary is, bleeding out her eyeballs and places, stupid woman.”

Well, turns out Hillary was on the money.  Terrorists are indeed using Trump’s bigot-speak to recruit in English language recruitment videos targeting Black and Muslim-Americans.

Way to go, Trump.  Proving that Republicans are idiots and are either complicit in terrorism either by design or by complete incompetence.  Of course, the inbred cogs in the Right Wing echo chamber one-trick-machine will and are already repeating Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh’s FOX-Spin on Trump’s shame.

The Medicaid Gap

Medicaid Gap

A lot of people who have settled in various BLUE states and have through the natural course of life, become sick — become disabled — would love to move back home and closer to the families they once left to migrate toward their dreams and goals. But, disabled and dependent on their state to aid them through their darkest and most vulnerable times, they are trapped in their new homes because their former ones rest in RED states that have refused to accept Medicaid expansion, because black. They cannot leave the Democratic-led states that accept Medicaid funds that keep them taken care of and medicated.

And, millions were never fortunate enough to escape their former homes and only know desperation. Republican-led states that would rather their constituents suffer and die than be helped by a social safety net.

All because a black President offered this life-saving help. Republican Tea-halfwit governors and state legislators would rather their constituents suffer and die in poverty rather than accept help from an administration that dared lead them fronted by a black man.

This video is about the “Medicaid Gap.” It’s about the US states that have leaders who have left their poor and disabled in positions of desperation and suffering rather than accept what in essence is their own citizens’ money to alleviate it.
