Plutocracy Reborn

As I wrote for OpEdNews, Hillary Clinton is tied to both criminal Wall Street and the terrorist US military industrial-drug complex in colossal and spectacular ways, particularly in the name of Beacon Global Strategies (http://www.opednews.com/articles/Beacon-Global-Strategies--by-Danny-Weil-Consultants_Democratic_Democrats_Elections-141105-37.html).

Clinton's longtime spokesman Philippe Reines and one-time national security adviser turned Assistant Secretary of State, Andrew Shapiro, teamed up with Jeremy Bash and Michael Allen to launch Beacon Global Strategies.

Bash spent years as chief of staff at both the CIA and Pentagon for former Defense Secretary and Clinton advisor, Leon Panetta. Allen, the lone Republican at Beacon, has a longstanding relationship with Bash proving again that there is no difference between Republicans or corporate Democrats when it comes to corruption and protection of the ruling elite. Allen and Bash operated together in a variety of roles while Allen was a White House staffer for President George W. Bush and as staff director of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (http://www.defensenews.com/article/20130903/DEFREG02/309030006).

But the faux consultant group is also joined by smarmy and unabashed courtesans for power, like freebooter, James Carville and well-connected Democratic operatives, Stan Greenberg and Bob Shrum all who labor endlessly for Hillary Clinton to become president in 2016. They seek influence and cachet, invites to exclusive mansions and well-heeled social functions.

Those who strive for a progressive agenda or expect a change to the squalid traditions of Washington need to wake up and become refugees from slumber, and quickly. They won't find advancement in a Hillary Clinton administration. Hillary Clinton is a plutocrat, supported by plutocrats and members of the savage military industrial-drug complex.

Fooled by Obama the thought of a Hilary Clinton presidency is terrifying and profane. What people will find when they research just who supports a Hillary Clinton presidency is a group of squalid hucksters, well-fed and slothful plutocrats and political insiders, spiraling through the revolving doors of government, the military and Wall St., thus perpetuating the cycle of corruption that pervades Washington and that is endemic in America.

But just how many of you have heard of the 'Ready for Hillary PAC"?

Sure, there has been some coverage by the corporate sock puppet press about Hillary's new 'Super-Pac', but generally the doyens for power have been quiet about the political action committee. They know who butters their bread.

The 'Ready for Hillary PAC' was founded in 2013. The super-PAC said in a statement in July of this year that it received money from 90,000 supporters after holding more than 500 fundraisers nationwide (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-07-15/ready-for-hillary-raises-2-5-million-over-three-months.html).

Supporters? Mmmm, remember Obama's campaign? Sounds familiar doesn't it?

Obama's 'bundlers' included names familiar from the Clinton years, including former White House Chief of Staff Thomas "Mack" McLarty; Lisa Caputo, a former White House aide to Hillary Clinton; Jamie Rubin, former State Department adviser to Madeleine Albright and husband of journalist Christiane Amanpour; and former Treasury Deputy Secretary Roger Altman, founder and chairman of Evercore Partners.

But there are hundreds more. Obama was not elected by $20 donations as the press would like you to believe ((http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2012/04/21/corzine_amid_scandal_is_among_obamas_top_bundlers.html).

Now the 'Ready for Hillary PAC' reported it has raised $1.7 million in the first quarter of this year alone. Although the group has a self-imposed donation cap of $25,000, the scam all laze in the money-bundling (by plutocrats) as well as in the sale of the PAC's list with names of eager supporters, most who are clueless that their names and efforts have been commodified and sold. But so are elections in the US, so it is not ironic, but to be expected.

To raise the billions that are needed for Hillary to run for president in 2016, her super-Pac lists are being traded, sold or rented to different groups. Not to mention that lists are worth big money when they are bought by third-party companies that house all the statistical information on the lists for sale.

Ironically (since Hillary supposedly worked on the Watergate scandal), list development and swapping practices by candidates seeking to buy their way into political life actually dates all the way back to the Watergate era. It's an old hustler's swindle and Hillary certainly is the Queen of hucksterism when it comes to her desire for national attention, acceptance and power.
