    Brock still at it

    Snip

    Hillary Clinton’s attack dog David Brock is launching his own Koch-brothers-like donor network to finance attacks on President-elect Donald Trump and to rebuild the political left after Trump’s stunning victory over Clinton last week.

    Brock on Thursday night emailed more than 200 of the biggest donors on the left — including finance titans George Soros, Tom Steyer and Donald Sussman — inviting them to a retreat in Palm Beach over inauguration weekend to assess what Democrats did wrong in 2016, figure out how to correct it and raise cash for those initiatives.

    1. The political left wants nothing to do with David Brock. Or Soros.

    And I don’t even know who the other two tools mentioned are, but if they are friends of Brock, I probably don’t want to know them.

    Want to know what Democrats did wrong in 2016, Brock?

    Listened to assholes like YOU and Debbie Scatterbrained-Lush, that’s what.

    Fuck Kamala Harris. Fuck Borey Crooker. Fuck Joy Reid. And FUCK Hillary Clinton & her husband for destroying the Demoncratic Party.

      18. I'm not too proud. I'd be glad

      to take some of their money… to finance some of my ‘activities’…

      4. Does he buy his "hair" from the same place Drumpf does?

      He’s starting to look about as ridiculous as Herr Cheeto. Just a little less orange.

      Fuck Kamala Harris. Fuck Borey Crooker. Fuck Joy Reid. And FUCK Hillary Clinton & her husband for destroying the Demoncratic Party.

    5. Oh dear. More of the same brockery.

    “Correct it” sounds like a code word for : attack progressives anywhere we find them on the web, only much harsher this time.

    "Someone hacks the DNC allowing all of America to see how the DNC operates as one of the most corrupt political machines in national history. Ergo, Hillary Clinton should be installed as President by judicial fiat. And if you do not agree to this scheme you deserve to be brought up on charges of treason because fascism." - NUGrrl, december 2016 “Once a person has been determined to be an UNTRUSTWORTHY LIAR, their pretend stances on important issues are simply not relevant to rational discussion.” – Ida Briggs, September 2016

    6. I think the operative objective here is "raise cash". Clearly, to me, the DNC

    is chock full of people who thought they would be getting fat salaries, and promised favorable legislation to the fat cats, and they are spinning in circles, trying to figure out how they missed the gravy train, how they can wrest back control of the gravy train, and how they can throw the new occupants of the gravy train off onto the tracks, and get their  DNC asses back into those nice warm seats.  Trying to keep their visibility and viability and cohesiveness together until they can somehow make that happen.  Before the big money drifts over to the new gravy train conductor & staff.  Fascinating, in a horrific and disgusting way.  Glad I am not a Democrat any more; embarrassin’, really.

    • *Obligatory disclaimer - when I say "Democratic Party" I mean the DNC - the Clintons and the un-elected people and the consultants and the lobbyists and the corporations who actually run things.  The people who work and vote and are registered as "D" are no more the actual party than Trekkies are Star Trek.   Extra credit - the Democratic Party gets to actually fuck up your life. When you vote for it.
    You think the only reason that people won't vote for a warmongering Third Way fracking-enabling cluster bomb throwing H-1B increasing lying pandering corporate and Wall Street shill who says she has no problem putting abortion rights on the table is because we are mad about Bernie?  Um, nope.

      9. Yes

      I also think if they don’t deliver, their donors will just attach to the republicans. No problem, they aren’t partisan, so it’s the establishment that doesn’t want to lose them. They know they will just go elsewhere, it is pathetic.

    7. They will put a new face, different message, same game.

    They really think we are stupid. They can’t understand what just happened. They are the problem and everyone knows it now.

    8. The fact Bernie is still drawing huge crowds should be a hint for them

    but since they are neolib corporadems they want to find a way to keep their gravy train going, people be damned.

    15. The plutocrats never stop. Doesn't matter party affiliation.

    We have a plutocracy problem in this country, a bad one.

    16. We really need a forum for all things David Brock, he's such a pos, or a

    permanent thread for him on third way.

    Democracy, in this late stage of capitalism, has been replaced with a system of legalized bribery. All branches of government, including the courts, along with the systems of entertainment and news, are wholly owned subsidiaries of the corporate state.
