His BROTHER was with Clinton, but you know, Manafort didn't work for him either.

How about you explain why Trump Jr., Manafort, Kushner are in a room with 8 Russians with Kremlin connections, talking about "What the Russians can do for Trump". Do you think that "What can Trump do for the Russians?" ever came up?
Does it sound like a deal?
Why did Wiki Leaks drop all that stuff they got from the Russians right after that meeting?

I don't know, but I suspect that Mueller is working on answering those questions.

Hillary had a contract with the DNC that they would STARVE any opposition she had on the Democrat Primaries, or any down Ticket candidate that supported any opposition candidate.


SHE LAUNDERED MONEY via the DNC and then SHE COLLUDED with Russia not trump.

Apparently, Democratic Party strategists started working on a theory they called the "Coalition of the Ascendant," as far back as the formation of the powerful insider committee - DLC...which picked Bill Clinton as their favored representative in spite of his sex scandals. "Coalition of the Ascendant" meant simply that: demographics is destiny, and Democrats could bring in more campaign financing and personal enrichment than Republicans, by shifting away and downgrading their relationship with Labor...especially organized labor!

According to this thinking...which still dominates the reasoning of Democrat strategists and politicians: the Party doesn't have to provide much of anything for the broad and increasing masses of disenfranchised people falling behind under the brave new world of finance-dominated global capitalism, aside from symbolic proclamations and identity appeals.

So, by this way of thinking, all they have to do is remind loyal members of their particular identities(black, brown, female, gay, educated professional, high tech etc.) and they will march into the voting booths like drones and vote for the 'lesser of two evils' and the candidates that run without a platform/other than platitudes. The fact that this shit isn't working anymore should have long ago provided the wake up call that Donna Brazile finally acknowledged recently...but Clinton and her loyalists are still denying!

Now, it appears that the rumblings of discontent are still growing and the numbers heading for the exit from the Democratic Party are also growing. General question for DTT members: Did your newsfeeds inform you about the decision at an AFL-CIO convention two weeks ago about the decision to form an exploratory committee for breaking away from supporting the Democratic Party for the formation of a US Labor Party? NO! I didn't notice it either. Maybe because most of my "fake news" sources aren't fans of the duplicitous unions like Teamsters or the UAW, that make up the labor coalition. You had to look pretty far and wide for the story:
Quote:
“For decades the political system has failed working people,” Weingarten said. “Acting on behalf of corporations and the rich and powerful, the political system has been taking away, one after another, the pillars that support working people’s right to good jobs and secure benefits.”

The two measures, adopted October 24, followed a late Monday-evening meeting of supporters of reviving the Labor Party idea. It attracted about 50 delegates to an upstairs meeting room at the convention’s lead hotel. Their contention: Both the Democrats and the Republicans are under corporate domination.
The prime mover of a Labor Party motion at the convention, Postal Workers President Mark Dimondstein, has been calling for such a new formation since the passage of NAFTA in 1993, which he said showed both Democrats and Republicans were in the pockets of the corporate class.

Dimondstein made many of the same arguments for a Labor Party on the convention floor that he voiced in the meeting the night before, when Baldemar Velasquez of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee, Mark Dudzic of Labor’s Committee for Single Payer, and Donna DeWitt, former president of the South Carolina AFL-CIO, joined him.

Meeting participants differed over whether the nascent party should first build an organization and concentrate on issues, or get into political races, running the risk of becoming “spoilers” in the current political system, rigged in favor of the two existing parties.

“We had a vision to build a party of the working class. You have to have the labor movement at the table from the beginning,” of the effort, “or you’re building sand castles,” Dudzic explained. He was a leader in the original Labor Party effort of the late 1990s and early 2000s. Participants in the meeting agreed. “We cannot build a party of labor when the working class is in retreat,” he added. The question was how to move forward.

“We have to crawl before we walk, we have to walk before we run and we have to run before we sprint,” one attendee, Professional and Technical Engineers President Greg Junemann, said.

If AFL-CIO is calling for an end to supporting "lesser of two evils politics," and allowing member unions to start the groundwork on developing a labor party, that should be a clear message to the mandarins that run the Democratic Party! But, since their media mouthpieces never heard of/or ignored the message, they won't notice until all the horses have left the barn!

Tony was registered as a foreign agent on the Saudi payroll, Johnny was Hillary's Campaign Mangler, and the Saudi's were the biggest contributors to her campaign. Naaaa.....what could be wrong here.
