Re: “Why Did Black South Carolinians Snub Bernie Sanders?

I wish the folks in South Carolina would understand that the AIPAC approved Clintons are on the wrong side of this...

Re: “Why Did Black South Carolinians Snub Bernie Sanders?

"It has been a struggle for us as blacks," she said. "We feel that the Clintons and the Kennedys, regardless of what others may say or feel, our gut feeling is that they’ve done more for us as African Americans than any other president — all the rest of them put together. Let the record reflect.”

Those words should be engraved on a monument to brainwashing, ignorance and beyond a credible formal education the apparent inability to use the internet.

For the record it was LBJ not JFK who did the most for Black folks and it was Clinton as President who put more Black men in prison than the number of Africans who had been in slavery at any one given time.

Bill Clinton decimated the domestic economies of Jamaica and Haiti by dumping US subsidised goods and wiping out Jamaican and Haitian farmers and farming. Pushing people into sweat shops for the likes of Disney at 20cents an hour.

The Clinton administration's policies in Africa were nothing less than genocidal. Protecting the copyrights and profits of Big Pharma denying essential medicines to tens of millions of Africans.

There were of course many non Afro victims of the Clinton crimes against humanity across the world but until Black America learns and thinks in terms of global solidarity Hillary can kill all kinds of people and they will keep on voting for her. Malcolm X would be utterly disgusted with the prevailing mentality in South Carolina.

Re: “Why Did Black South Carolinians Snub Bernie Sanders?

Just as Trump is a master of convincing poor whites to vote against their best interests the Clintons are supreme vampires at conning poor blacks into voting against their best interests.

No one has a record of killing and imprisoning Afro peoples at home and abroad that comes close to the Clintons. Hillary and UK PM Cameron and their Saudi partners used Jihadist rebels in Libya who were an Arab KKK that went on a lynching rampage hunting every Black African man they could get their hands on.
Torturing and murdering them. There are solid case files of 150 cases and two to three hundred more men for whom there are not evidence cases but who were never seen or heard of again. Gaddafi provided financial aid to the poorest sub-Saharan Black African countries and seasonal work in Libya to their citizens. When the UK/France/US/Saudi Arabia destroyed Libya and murdered Gaddafi with the sociopath Clinton caught on camera relishing the blood lust....millions of Black Africans were pushed into economic despair. They gave their last dollars to people smugglers and many drowned trying to cross to Europe. This is the foreign policy experience of Hillary Clinton that apparently folks in South Carolina have such respect and admiration for.

Re: “Letters to the Editor (2/24/16)

PART 2 of 2
That for all their baloney patriotism in a moment in history when the single most innovative and important venture on the face of the earth is an American company building and manufacturing in the USA with American workers they are all silent on TESLA. That PANASONIC is so impressed with what TESLA is doing they have committed to a $1.6 BILLION investment in the battery Gigafactory in Nevada. Still no word from Bernie or any politician because they do not even know to say anything a disgrace in itself.
BTW the State of Vermont is lousy for electric vehicle charging stations and especially TESLA friendly electric vehicle charging infrastructure. You need to get serious chargers like CHADEMO DC chargers and 70amp single phase AC chargers installed. Many MODEL S drivers from out of State like to visit Vermont and you are of course also a pass through on the way to Montreal. If you have serious charging TESLARIANS driving to and from Canada will stop and spend money in Vermont while charging up. Then in 2 years when the more affordable TESLA MODEL 3 and a longer range Nissan Leaf are on the market the EV traffic will increase significantly. Think ahead be prepared if you build it they will come.

Re: “Letters to the Editor (2/24/16)

PART 1 of 2.
Bernie Sanders could have won in Nevada if he and his campaign manager knew enough and were aware enough beyond the usual rhetoric about fossil fuels etc to visit the site of the under construction TESLA / PANASONIC Gigafactory. When completed the Gigafactory will be the largest manufacturing plant on the earth and it will be 100% powered by solar, wind and geothermal.
It is clear to me that Bernie Sanders is utterly clueless about the TESLA mission like all politicians including Green Party politicians (who are just Watermelons who spend 99% of their time talking red not green) Sanders and his team know nothing about battery chemistry and application they have no vision comprehension of the massive task that Elon Musk and TESLA has taken on. The fact that during the course of the Nevada primary/caucus neither party produced a single politician aware enough to visit the Gigafactory site and give a speech showing that they understand the economic model of prosperity and the technological innovation that it offers (without which there is no getting off fossil fuels) is a sad indictment of American politicians.

Re: “Clinton Crushes Sanders in South Carolina

What a disgrace. What ignorance. What callous indifference toward all the victims of the litany of global violence by the Clintons. The GOP knows how to con poor whites and the Clintons know how to con poor blacks. Both into voting against their own self interest and for the 1%.
