An Impertinent Question - Robert Reich (Could it be treason?)


An Impertinent Question - from Robert Reich

Permit me an impertinent question (or three).

Suppose a small group of extremely wealthy people sought to systematically destroy the U.S. government by (1) finding and bankrolling new candidates pledged to shrinking and dismembering it; (2) intimidating or bribing many current senators and representatives to block all proposed legislation, prevent the appointment of presidential nominees, eliminate funds to implement and enforce laws, and threaten to default on the nation’s debt; (3) taking over state governments in order to redistrict, gerrymander, require voter IDs, purge voter rolls, and otherwise suppress the votes of the majority in federal elections; (4) running a vast PR campaign designed to convince the American public of certain big lies, such as climate change is a hoax, and (5) buying up the media so the public cannot know the truth.

Will Bob Etheridge succumb to surprise run for NCDP Chair

Rumors abound, since Dr Mansfield dropped out of the race for NCDP Chair and Chris Rey said he would not run, that Bob Etheridge would emerge as the last great hope for the folks wedded to the older and losing parts of the NCDP, either because they are older and set in their ways, or younger and used to getting their ways from the older set. I would suppose that some have weighed in with Bob (I am sort of really old, and he is my age) to come and be the chair so they could continue to have their own ways. I understand why the consultant mafia would want him back, and the monied elites want to exercise control over "their investment", particularly Senator Hagan and her crowd.

Politico Hit Piece-On NCDP

The attacks on Parker, which were predicted, are supposedly validated in this hit piece, written by some folks here in NC who do not share any liking for David Parker. It is a piece of trash and many here know who helped with this tripe.
