Mueller is a consummate Company Man (decidedly not any kind of morally upstanding maverick) and behaved exactly as such to the dismay and mild consternation of loser, milquetoast Democrats

Word-swapping & being better off with no news than commercial “news”

The politics and business of health care, by Caitlin Owens. Weekday mornings

Source: Vitals – July 15, 2019 – Axios

So, look at this paragraph:

Biden’s proposal is more ambitious than anything that was seriously on the table during the ACA debate, but looks decidedly moderate compared to Bernie Sanders’ plan — which is significantly more ambitious than almost any other health care system in the world.

It appears to me that the corporate-owned/corporate-controlled media have elected to swap out the word “worse” for “moderate”, and “better” for “ambitious”.  And I think the reason why they did that is because the de-facto tendency for corporate/conservative/status-quo/commercial media is to make it look like, “Gosh, it’s just too hard to do good things.  :-/ Sorry!  I mean, we just tried to do something good and that didn’t work, but now you want to do something *really* good?  How do you think *that* will turn out?  :-/  Yeah.  Now I’m really worried.  Let’s not do that.  That’s just too hard.  It might not work.”

Well, that’s weak.  🙂  And it seems like propaganda and not educational discourse.  So have fun reading your Axios and feeling like you are more aware than you were before you read it.  You were probably more correct in your thinking prior to reading it.  Remember the news that Fox News viewers were actually less informed than those who watch *none* of that garbage, commercial, cable-TV, non-local news.

Glenn Greenwald: Obama’s anti-press measures ‘are the most aggressive I’ve seen since the Nixon administration’

Thanks, Obama!

And an important thing to recognize is that it wouldn’t really have mattered who was president at that time; the same thing would have happened.  Replace Obama with a Clinton, a Bush, Joe Biden — any owned and well-heeled politician that toes the line — the will of the military industrial complex would have been obeyed.

For a change, try electing people based on their bold ideas and principles rather than name recognition and folksiness.

Joe Biden is a chump, just like all the other practiced, politician-class idiots that run Congress at the behest of their corporate owners and masters.

Nice to see a bunch of people who GET IT (!!!!!!!!) enjoying an evening together.  I’m hoping to get something similar going in Jackson, Mississippi, with my Jackson Progressive Salon and our summer kick-off event on June 20, 2019, a screening of Michael Moore’s Where to Invade Next.
