    John Podesta joins The Washington Post as a contributing columnist

    By WashPostPR February 23
    The Washington Post today announced that John Podesta will join the Opinion section as a contributing columnist. Podesta, former chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign, will provide commentary and analysis on the intersection of politics and policy, the Trump administration and the future of the Democratic Party.

    “No one knows more about how Washington works, how the White House operates, and how policy ideas are translated into reality than John Podesta,” said Editorial Page Editor Fred Hiatt. “His long experience in Congress, inside two Democratic White Houses and on the front lines of numerous presidential campaigns, will offer readers vital insight into Washington and politics at the start of a new era.”

        3. Did you post on it? If this is a dupe, I'll delete. But I coudn't find it

        anywhere. But I could have easily missed it. Except for the past few days I don’t spend much, if any, time posting here. Or reading for that matter. It takes about a month for this site to load on my computer and I often spend more time waiting than reading.

          4. No, I didn't post on it here. It was a video blogger

          discussing it along with the rest of the Podesta family and their connections to the WAPO and other organizations.

            10. I didn't know about the others; I'd guess the reason = WAPO = intel hx =

            Podesta clan = same background

            amirite?

      8. I remember seeing it a while back in another forum

      But it makes sense in this one — so many decent notices scroll down between visits in the main forums on busy days.

      BTW, welcome to JPR — I’ve read many of your contributions at c99p!

      Pleased to have matching hands and feet.

        9. Hi. Sorry I didn't get back sooner. I missed the story actually when it

        first broke. It made me laugh because it isn’t like it wasn’t pretty obvious that the WP was in the bag for the Clinton Creature even before the primary. and eventually they didn’t even try to hide it, like with that Capehart kerfuffle. Podesta was one of the biggest stinkers in Clinton’s entire campaign staff. That act alone says the WP isn’t really interested in honest journalism.

        We seem to have gone so far down the rabbit hole I don’t know if any of it even matters anymore. The inmates truly are running the asylum and they don’t even give a damn that we know that they think we’re ‘expendable’.  They would truly love to cull the herd, so to speak.

         

        EDIT: Clint/Clinton

          11. culling the herd would drive up the price of labor. better to just further

          impoverish us by sucking our blood, but keep us alive through the process.

          also provides jobs “helping the suffering masses” for their enablers in the top 10%

            12. Culling the herd would make one of their lifelong dreams come true, killing off

            all the ‘useless eaters’ they can.

              13. except it drives up the price of labor; unless you think the real 'useless

              eaters’ are going to clean their own toilets and sewers and build their own planes.

              oh, yeah, robots will do it all

              and who’s going to build them?

              other robots in an infinite regress

              right

              contrary to the ‘biz press’ there’s still quite a bit of real work done by labor

                14. Where did you ever get the idea that I said that they'd eliminate EVERYBODY but

                their own kind? Now you’re going to extremes. They will always keep enough prols around to do the dirty work and the prols will do it to survive.

                  15. as i said; fewer proles drives up the price of labor. supply demand thing

                  I didn’t say anything about eliminating labor

                  you said it; I said reducing the supply of labor drives up the price of labor

                    17. They're inventing their own labor. They've got machines flipping burgers now.

                    And if it’s so important to you that you need win an argument based on something that was never said in the first place, go ahead and enjoy. I even tried explaining to you that:

                    They will always keep enough prols around to do the dirty work and the prols will do it to survive.

                    Since that wasn’t good enough, and to let this poor dying horse be laid to rest, we’ll say YOU WIN!!! I bow down to your superior knowledge and ability to turn entire remarks into something that was never said.

                    P.S,. This might help you in the future.

                    1.
                    a selective slaughter of wild animals.

                    To ‘cull the herd’ doesn’t mean kill off everything, it means to keep the number down to a ‘manageable’ level.

                    Now, have you got anything of note to contribute on the subject of John Podesta and the WP?

                      18. Labor that's "manufactured" by capital offers no profit, but don't let your

                      lack of comprehension of the argument interfere with your condescension.
