I Listened to EVERY Second Of "Hillary's Show" With Rachel One On One Tonight...

Can you imagine...? How could we be so blessed?

The Corporate Media pulling out all of the stops before the nation's first primary vote tomorrow!

Practically the ENTIRE Rachel Maddow Show was spent either discussing, showcasing or... interviewing Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the eve of the New Hampshire Democratic Presidential Primary Election? It was in a word... UNBELIEVABLE!

I listened to every word... From Hillary aligning herself in step with Bill in bashing Bernie's campaign for being "dishonest..." To now further explicating her continued obfuscation concerning the release of her Goldman Sachs/Wall Street Speaking Transcripts... the material control of which is solely in her hands... Hillary's blathering on about Hedge Funds attacking her with their money when she just last week was scheduled to attend fundraisers with Mitt Romney's former employer Bain Capitol and Blackstone Finance, two well known Wall Street Hedge Funds... We know that .. "You're Tough and battle scarred" and with good reason...

We heard Hillary's denial of any knowledge of a possible "shake up" in her campaign organization...Then finally to her headlong dive into the Flint lead contamination TRAGEDY where she demonstrated how mis-informed she remains on the physiology of LEAD poisoning in children as while softly attempting to take credit politically for whatever assistance was already underway... she talked about how the harm to the children affected might be mitigated... Lead poisoning and the resultant BRAIN DAMAGE associated with exposure to lead Madam Secretary is permanent and irreversible! That is why there have been ongoing efforts to remove lead paint from old homes since the 1960's!


Today, I ONLY watch MSNBC to measure and keep track of the abject shilling for Hillary as well as the many lies told by Chris Matthews... EVERY night about Bernie Sanders on Hardball...Tonight was no exception! From Social Security, to Health Care to College Funding Chris was interjecting his false editorial bombast as fact, in His description of Bernie's policies. Chris Hayes is generally a little less "In the Tank" for Hillary... but not by much.


The proof will be in the tally tomorrow...
I will trust that the solid New Hampshire electorate will not stand for any shenanigans in the tally. A Nation's future may rest in their hands.

10. He's always been a loose cannon

 

Tweety on George Bush in May 2003, praising him for the Iraq War:


MATTHEWS: We're proud of our president. Americans love having a guy as president, a guy who has a little swagger, who's physical, who's not a complicated guy like Bill Clinton or even like ormer Democratic presidential candidates Dukakis or Mondale, all those guys, McGovern. They want a guy who's president. Women like a guy who's president. Check it out. The women like this war. I think we like having a hero as our president. It's simple. We're not like the Brits. We don't want an indoor prime minister type, or the Danes or the Dutch or the Italians, or a Putin. Can you imagine Putin getting elected here? We want a guy as president.

69. I've Seen Several Posts Here Saying Rachel Was A HUGE

supporter of Bernie Sanders. I NEVER believed it for one minute! Rachel was once a REAL Progressive/Liberal but that was before her show became the show that had the highest ratings on MSNBC. Since then, and especially in the past 1 1/2 years she slowing begun to lean to the right. At first I thought it was because of MSNBC was getting rid of many of the hosts that were more Progressive and she decided it was best not to make waves. She began covering different topics, not so much in the Chris Hayes way who went down to Ferguson and other places where upheaval was occurring. She was good at pointing to environmental issues and other types of issues like gun violence.

But now, even though she's had Bernie on I began hearing small comments here an there that made me feel she supported Hillary. Now, it's pretty much out in the open. I did keep watching MSNBC even after they started to slowing dump hosts that I really liked. I began watching on and off then, but when they dumped Ed Schultz that was it for me! I simply don't watch them anymore. I've found that FSTV, RT and LINK are more fair and balanced. RT has really surprised me with some of it's programs. They're quite good and Watching The Hawks, Jessie Ventura, Lee Camp and more who report the news much more fairly. And these stations also cover news from around the world and a lot of economic news.

The there's Chris Matthews... He's been biased against Bernie from day one IMO. At best MSNBC is DLC/Third Way if not even more conservative than that with some of their shows. Melissa Harris Perry is quite blatantly a Hillary supporter and MSNBC is quite happy to be The Hillary Channel right now. After the election, depending on who wins I doubt they'll ever be anything more the RIGHT LEANING.

Too bad, but as with what we've seen with almost all of our elected officials who campaigned as Progressives, they've just turned into "MORE OF THE SAME" and nothing more than DINOs for the most part! When people like Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Howard Dean, John Lewis and even Sherrod Brown have gotten on the Anti-Bernie bandwagon I've felt completely betrayed! These are the people I always thought would fight for us no matter what, but for me it seems our very own Democrats have decided to FIGHT against what "we the people" have wanted for such a long time!

This Democratic Party has basically decided it doesn't need to fight for us. They've become almost as bad as the other side when it comes to lining their pockets. I'm fed up and have NEVER IN MY LIFE seen such a concerted effort to blatantly GO AFTER a person who has ALWAYS caucused with them since he became a member of Congress.

AND, Bernie Sanders has a very long and accomplished record of getting legislation passed since he's been there. AND, has worked extremely well with Repubs many, many times. I may be wrong, but I think he's had more bills passed than any other person in Congress. At the very least his record is quite extensive. TOO MANY PEOPLE just don't want this information to be covered and talked about through almost any MSM outlet!

AND NOW, Bloomberg is thinking he wants to do what he can to stop his momentum! It's sickening at the very least, but mostly it's CORRUPT!

Be sure to keep a space under the bus for Bernie - whether he loses or wins he will inevitably trigger that terminal, all-or-nothing disappointment reaction.

Seriously, did none of those rejects ever do anything at all to earn a little twinge of lasting respect, or even gratitude? Don't answer me. Just maybe ask yourselves?

Mark Halperin and John Heiliman have a new show on MSNBC sponsored by Bloomberg News called "With All Due Respect". It is entertaining, and filled with tidbits of campaign news.

Nothing at all like the other MSNBC shows.

While I have reasons to dislike Halperin, he seems to be non-partisan here. I like it.

I don't trust Chuck Toad.

And I usually have other things to do when Rachel is on anyway ... but I'm not happy about what I'm hearing.

Mark Halperin and John Heiliman do seem to be more balanced and provide news and analysis that is pretty level-headed. Also "With All Due Respect" hasn't thus far gone in for the hyperventilating over candidate interviews like the rest of the MSNBC shows.

Make no mistake... Hillary is NOT being paid to do ANYTHING other than to MAINTAIN THE STATUS QUO for Wall Street/ The Oligarchy et al... Because They benefit from the current paradigm and want to keep yhe gravy train going.. for themselves!

discussion with O'Donnell, David Corn, and some other guy (whose name I don't recall)
and there she was 1) more respectful of Bernie's campaign, and had several moments
of truthfulness about some of the odd & unattractive aspects of Hillary's campaign.

She also claimed, in an aside, that she had invited Bernie to be on her show as well, but
that his schedule did not allow it, or some such. So all this needs to be factored in as well.

31. Well, I don't really know. She could easily have been just covering her tracks

 

but if so, you'd think Bernie might call her out on it, or maybe not cuz he's such a nice guy.

but I could imagine Rachael saying "well i just had to run more of the Clinton interview than
i had planned, to fill in for where Bernie was going to be" ..

33. You Know Rachel Started Out By Asking Hillary About Why She Is Considered By Many To Be

dishonest...?

What does Hillary do... She turns right around and pumps out more untruths about Bernie taking CA$H from Wall Street...

I mean Hillary can prevaricate with a perfectly ...STRAIGHT FACE... about anyone or anything!

The problem is ... that she thinks that she is better at lying to people than she really is. She is quite easy to catch, especially if one has even a rudimentary command of the facts. Her downfall is her own fault!

34. I think bernie's supporters...

... are on an all-out mission to pile up as many excuses as they can for when he loses to Hillary Clinton. I think they will throw every excuse out there to justify their anger when it will be just a simple matter of the voters belief that she is the better candidate.

44. HRC has absolutely no excuse for losing New Hampshire

That was an opinion flowing out of the tv earlier.

Why? Well, here's a hint...

Just list all the advantages she started out with. The media in the tank. Obama. Internationally known name recognition. Millions upon millions of dollars of support from business and special interest groups. Bill CLinton. All the unions. All the feminists. All the LGBT groups. Practically every elected official in the country with a D after his or her name. All of everything. The DLC headed by a crony. Debates set up to give her cover without having to say much about anything.

I'd go on but my typing fingers are beginning to hurt.

Her opponents? A clown car full of ridiculous GOPuke clowns, including another Bush for Christs sake. Four loser Dems including Jim Webb, Martin O'Malley, Lincoln Chaffee (Who?) and some balding septuagenarian grouchy old Jew originally from Brooklyn who now is somehow a sitting Independent Senator from Vermont who claims the mantle of democratic socialist, like we were living in Denmark or something.

Faced with a life and death contest like that would you lose even a minute of sleep about your chances?

The current situation is an unparalleled disaster in political terms. Even Tweetie and the Toad can see it for the train wreck its becoming. HRC most likely will manage to eke out a victory over the course of the next months, and she does have all those SuperDelegates to count on as well, but this campaign of hers can be doing nothing but reassure whichever GOPuke moron she ends up facing in November.

I think the operative term is "hubris."

57. I wasn't talking about winning New Hampshire...

... but the primary itself. That's an impressive list of assets Hillary has, but Bernie Sanders has one asset that will counter all of that in New Hampshire, and Vermont, who will, of course, do the neighborly thing. I think Hillary will do very well once the primary moves out of snow country, and into the warmer climes of the south.

43. MSNBC is definitely part of the MSM

I usually rely on Rachel to give a balanced account so this disappoints me greatly. Chris Matthews has been absolutely horrible the past week with his daily rants essentially calling Bernie a Commie. I am very disappointed in the whole crew.

He was very fair to Bernie's associate.

51. Hayes was accused of being a Hillary shill

Just the other day. He failed to preface stating her name with that lying pos Hillary and Bernie supporters thought he was giving her a pass.
Go figure. Once everyone is under the bus Bernie will have smooth sailing.

60. before we get too fired-up, just google 'cable network' or 'cable news' ratings...

m$nbc is not on life-support, but it is also not really in the race...

WE all watch all the cable news religiously...the rest of the country, as far as m$nbc...not so much...

Matthews is a non-starter in the average American household...

the whole M$M brigade can go screw themselves....they won't see the torches and pitchforks until they feel the barb in their asses and their roofs on fire...

66. Rachal Maddow has always been a thinly desquised shill for Bernie from the beginning.

The only reason she interviews Hillary is because she thinks she can trip Hillary up. I for the life of me don't know why Clinton continues to grant her interviews. Rachal is only out to try and do damage to Hillary. She is a Bernie Supporter all the way.

73. If Rachel wanted to really hit Hillary, Rachel would hold her to the same standard

 

that she held JEB.

On her January 11th show she said this about JEB's net favorable rating being Negative One.

http://www.msnbc.com/transcripts/rachel-maddow-show/2016-01-11

^snip^

The line up at the top that`s vaguely going down that`s his favorable
numbers. The line at the bottom that is going up, that`s his unfavorable
numbers. And you will notice as we get close to now that they have
recently crossed, which means his unfavorables are higher than his
favorables, and that is a fatal disease for politicians.


And, you know, you can argue that any one thing, any one contextual dynamic
might explain what`s wrong with Jeb Bush this year. But that is stark.
Look at the overall trajectory of those two numbers over this period of
months that he`s been running. That is what $50 million of spending has
bought Jeb Bush.





While Hillary's numbers are more like this:
