Quick Thought on New Hampshire

By James Kwak

From the Times (order of quotations reversed):

Mr. Sanders was the choice, nearly unanimously, among voters who said it was most important to have a candidate who is “honest and trustworthy.”

[Clinton] has gone so far as to promise to rethink and adjust her campaign strategy in hopes of connecting better with Democrats.

Part of the problem is that the Clintons have spent more than twenty years trying to say what their pollsters tell them people want to hear. When people no longer believe in the political class, feel (rightly or wrongly) like the government is controlled by distant socio-economic elites, and want someone “honest and trustworthy,” another round of message calibration is not going to fill the gap. If Clinton emerges from New Hampshire as the champion of the working man, it will be about as convincing as Al Gore’s desperate rebranding as a populist in late 2000.

  1. Rumor is that what they’re actually going to do is try to be the champions of blacks, in their struggle to reform policing. Considering their tough-on-crime history, this is pretty damn hypocritical, but that was long enough ago that they just might pull it off.

  2. Clinton is so fake it should make people stomachs turn. As just another guy with a vagina, she is more of the problem with the war on woman, as opposed to the solution. DRUG TEST POLITICIANS, and she would drop out the race like a leaf off a tree just before winter approaches.

  3. What some consider honest and trustworthy, others consider simplistic and naive. Reality has much nuance, politics not so much. I can just imagine the disenchantment if Sanders were elected and little changed. Liar would be too kind.

  4. Lord, isn’t that a tad selectively interpretive? Reality? Politics is a joke, that’s been proved over and over again. Imagination is the greatest nation of them all, liars are in the majority, that’s why we are where we are today, too many kind liars. Go figure.


    The Odd couple of Billionaire Wealth (Trump) and Social Economic Health (Sanders) are a fascinating outcome to pair off as alternative leaders.
    I think James hit the nail on the head when he said that “honest and trustworthy,” wins the race.
    Once again…strange political bedfellows ironically have now demonstrated that the message itself is not necessarily the matter so much as the face of political puppetry …just business…just politics…is no longer a working deception. Echoes in the halls of Washington for Clinton …the Truth will set you free! Comes now to haunt her.


    “Apparently, voters were simply waiting for an authentic presidential candidate to frame their demands into a cohesive message.”
    Exit Polls: 40 Percent of NH Dems Want a President
    More Liberal Than Obama
    By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: February 10, 2016
    “Other questions in the exit polling spelled more trouble for Hillary. According to CNN exit polls, three-quarters of Democratic voters said they are worried about the economy. Ninety percent said they felt the structure of the economy favored the wealthy. The legitimate fear is that if Hillary gains the White House, she will appoint guardians of the interests of the wealthy into key posts as Treasury Secretary, head of the Securities and Exchange Commission and U.S. Justice Department – effectively rubber-stamping the gold-plated revolving door between Wall Street and Washington — a replay of the Obama administration in other words.”

    Outsiders Sanders, Trump Win Big In NH,
    But No Clear Answers Ahead

    “The two presidential candidates disdaining corporate donations won huge victories in the New Hampshire primaries Feb. 9. But the next steps in their races remain unusually open as the campaigns move this month to Nevada and South Carolina.”
    “Both winners tapped into deep voter discontent with the political, business, and media establishments in the country and in the two major parties,…”
    Sanders’ self-description as a “democratic socialist” creates discomfort in conservative regions, where Sanders has polled far below Clinton (at least until he introduces himself). There is an upside, however. In New Hampshire exit polls, he won 91-5 on the issue of being more trustworthy.
    (worth repeating):

  8. Hillary Shrillary just doesn’t get because she thinks it is still ALL about her – how smart, how experienced, how she would be the one to get “things done” (knowing the inner workings the federal bureaucracy) were she to make it to the White House. Let’s take them one by one: “how smart”: Graduating first in her law class but was and perhaps still is, clueless about why Iowa was so close; why she lost in New Hampshire. They say it was her messaging. I would say, it’s more about her being tone-deaf and too focus on herself, as has been reflected by her responses in the debates with Sanders. 2) Experience: if the polling results in New Hampshire didn’t reveal much, it certainly reveal this – that voters are disgusted with ESTABLISHMENT politicians, period! – does Hillary not understand!? 3) Getting things done: there are volumes of writing that would suggest to the contrary: As has been posted elsewhere, Obama criticized Wall Street bankers during his 2008 presidential campaign, then admonishing them in early 2009 during his first 100 days in office. Then, at the suggestion of his transition team, Obama started to nominate and placed Wall-Street friendly cabinet members and advisers. HIstory would probably repeat itself; Hillary would capitulate, triangulate, and basically side with her donors if they prove to be as loyal as the Clintons would demand.

    It has been disappointing to read that Senator Brown of Ohio, the mayor New York (DeBlasio) along with others (Dennis Kelleher of Better Markets) are supporting Hillary. Aren’t these the same pols/critics that are constantly complaining about the excesses of TBTF banks, Goldman Sachs, Wall Street, rigged markets, consumer unfairness, etc. etc. The below article will continue to be posted until Hillary makes her remarks more transparent: http://politi.co/1otn9eP :

    “A person familiar with the matter said that even if Goldman did have the ability to block Clinton from releasing her remarks, the bank would never exercise that right and would allow the speeches to be released. But many Clinton supporters remain steadfast that she should not be pressured into releasing the text of private remarks. “If we are going to hold one candidate to the standard of releasing their transcripts whether for speeches or fundraisers, then why don’t we hold all of them to the same standard?” said Jimmy Williams, host of the DecodeDC podcast and a former MSNBC contributor. “I would wholeheartedly welcome that if we applied it to both Democrats and Republicans as well as socialists.” The person who saw Clinton’s Arizona remarks to Goldman said they thought there was no chance the campaign would ever release them. “It would bury her against Sanders,” this person said. “It really makes her look like an ally of the firm.”

  9. 2016, you need to better recognize and understand satans ubiquitous control over peoples lives, Pillary is just a satanical gvt tool to used as he pleases. You can’t reason w/ satan, debate or even criticize him. He has his economic formula and greenbacks and technology are his gods he uses to control his subjects, it’s as simple as that.

    How do you know when you have seen satan,
    1) You ask him to join you in eating some pizza and he replies, oh no, we eat healthy.

    2)He gets mad because he can’t fool all the people all the time.

    3) He can’t live with a white toilet, has to have a maroon one.

    4) You see black and white, and red all over.

    5) He causes the problem and then wants to ride to the rescue with his own solution.

    I’m sure there are more signs yet you have to be the one to recognize them, he is everywhere pretty much all the time so experience is the better part of valor in this case, good luck, and don’t let him get the best of you.

  10. “in his own mind”….

    53:2.3 (602.6) No one ever suggested rebellion to Lucifer. The idea of self-assertion in opposition to the will of Michael and to the plans of the Universal Father, as they are represented in Michael, had its origin in his own mind. His relations with the Creator Son had been intimate and always cordial. At no time prior to the exaltation of his own mind did Lucifer openly express dissatisfaction about the universe administration. Notwithstanding his silence, for more than one hundred years of standard time the Union of Days on Salvington had been reflectivating to Uversa that all was not at peace in Lucifer’s mind. This information was also communicated to the Creator Son and the Constellation Fathers of Norlatiadek.

    .3. The Lucifer Manifesto

    53:3.1 (603.2) Whatever the early origins of trouble in the hearts of Lucifer and Satan, the final outbreak took form as the Lucifer Declaration of Liberty. The cause of the rebels was stated under three heads:

    53:3.2 (603.3) 1. The reality of the Universal Father. Lucifer charged that the Universal Father did not really exist, that physical gravity and space-energy were inherent in the universe, and that the Father was a myth invented by the Paradise Sons to enable them to maintain the rule of the universes in the Father’s name. He denied that personality was a gift of the Universal Father. He even intimated that the finaliters were in collusion with the Paradise Sons to foist fraud upon all creation since they never brought back a very clear-cut idea of the Father’s actual personality as it is discernible on Paradise. He traded on reverence as ignorance. The charge was sweeping, terrible, and blasphemous. It was this veiled attack upon the finaliters that no doubt influenced the ascendant citizens then on Jerusem to stand firm and remain steadfast in resistance to all the rebel’s proposals.

    53:3.3 (603.4) 2. The universe government of the Creator Son — Michael. Lucifer contended that the local systems should be autonomous. He protested against the right of Michael, the Creator Son, to assume sovereignty of Nebadon in the name of a hypothetical Paradise Father and require all personalities to acknowledge allegiance to this unseen Father. He asserted that the whole plan of worship was a clever scheme to aggrandize the Paradise Sons. He was willing to acknowledge Michael as his Creator-father but not as his God and rightful ruler.

    53:3.4 (603.5) Most bitterly did he attack the right of the Ancients of Days — “foreign potentates” — to interfere in the affairs of the local systems and universes. These rulers he denounced as tyrants and usurpers. He exhorted his followers to believe that none of these rulers could do aught to interfere with the operation of complete home rule if men and angels only had the courage to assert themselves and boldly claim their rights.

    53:3.5 (603.6) He contended that the executioners of the Ancients of Days could be debarred from functioning in the local systems if the native beings would only assert their independence. He maintained that immortality was inherent in the system personalities, that resurrection was natural and automatic, and that all beings would live eternally except for the arbitrary and unjust acts of the executioners of the Ancients of Days.

    53:3.6 (604.1) 3. The attack upon the universal plan of ascendant mortal training. Lucifer maintained that far too much time and energy were expended upon the scheme of so thoroughly training ascending mortals in the principles of universe administration, principles which he alleged were unethical and unsound. He protested against the agelong program for preparing the mortals of space for some unknown destiny and pointed to the presence of the finaliter corps on Jerusem as proof that these mortals had spent ages of preparation for some destiny of pure fiction. With derision he pointed out that the finaliters had encountered a destiny no more glorious than to be returned to humble spheres similar to those of their origin. He intimated that they had been debauched by overmuch discipline and prolonged training, and that they were in reality traitors to their mortal fellows since they were now co-operating with the scheme of enslaving all creation to the fictions of a mythical eternal destiny for ascending mortals. He advocated that ascenders should enjoy the liberty of individual self-determination. He challenged and condemned the entire plan of mortal ascension as sponsored by the Paradise Sons of God and supported by the Infinite Spirit.

    53:3.7 (604.2) And it was with such a Declaration of Liberty that Lucifer launched his orgy of darkness and death.”

    The whole “dark pool derivatives” game was hatched on a website where the handful of people who know about The Urantia Book used the “ideas” in The Urantia Book for code-talking, like USA used Navajo language in WWII. If people REALLY knew what has been going on, there would be complete agreement about “how to make America great again”…

    bat sht crazy – us mere mortals DO NOT have a “duty” to follow another’s “mind” into hell….the superhighway to hell is “fiat” $$$$ and “dark pool derivatives”….

    People gotta know how crazy humans become “in their own mind” when they follow “self-assertion and liberty”

    More misery for others = More $$$$ for ME ME ME

    Cannibal capitalism – here’s some heroin to ease your pain….the #1 issue in NH when people headed to the voting booth


    53:3.7 (604.2) And it was with such a Declaration of Liberty that Lucifer launched his orgy of darkness and death.”
    Pretty powerful stuff Annie!
    The de facto reality is that most of America is fed up with the political puppet show. Trump offers them the casino gamblers dream of abundance and wealth with his rhetoric of greatness, and the so called “Art of the Deal” political arena. The old adage that ‘if it sounds too good to be true…, it is probably a confidence game” seems appropriate advice for the popular crowd.
    In the other corner we get the new age New Deal revisited and the art of that deal is based upon a shared economy of responsibility and open society. Pick your curtain>
    In the meantime Hillary is on Obama’s coat tails now (the audacity of Hope and other fairy tales) and believes she should be elected simply because she is next in line among the rank and file that believe political community is the only real decision makers. The fact is that people are also fed up with being handed candidates for no reason other than the “party” says so. Well the party is over and frankly the common ground for Trump and Sanders is that they are both outsiders of that system.
    The Art of the Deal is a one man show: same snake, new skin.
    The New Deal of Sanders is a new start for everyone.
    Which one would Lucifer choose?


    “The reassessment of Hillary Clinton was driven in part by the disillusionments of the Obama years. “Watching the system not change really made an impact on these people,”. “I don’t think they want to get burned again.””
    “But Sanders’s belief in the plausibility of a “political revolution” is also based off a specific critique of Obama’s presidency and its approach to wielding power. In his view, Obama had it within his power to upend the rules of politics in 2008, when he was pulling record crowds and creating a new model for political organizing. Then he got elected and … stopped. He went from revolutionizing the outside game to trying to master the inside game. He let Organizing for America wither, and he compromised with every major interest group that stood in his way.”

    Hillary Clinton and the audacity of political realism
    by Ezra Klein on January 28, 2016

  13. Interesting too Bruce that both these political crony’s (Clinton’s and Obama) came from states which have a deep history of fraud and defaulting on stolen money. I’m referring to “the stranger and the statesman” and how the money to be used to create the Smithsonian was “hocked” by 3 states and then bonds created to pay back the money which became a US taxpayer liability and added to the national debt.
    Those states being ark, ill, and Ind, all states having a taxable major waterway and citizens with delusions of grander. The bad apples apparently don’t fall far from the tree and memory’s being short these family’s found ways to rise to the top again with bigger and better stakes generally to be found, because that’s the way it’s always been done.

  14. Off topic, …….The Life, Adventures, and Evolution of Skunk….

    There is no doubt in skunks mind that skunks mind is as old as universal time it’s self. And from life’s experiences he can see as far back into time as is needed to complete a future task. In addition he can remember things in his own life which most others simply can’t do. Don’t ask me the hows or the whys of this extraordinary memory, just know they are truths.

    The first thing skunk recalls is actually being born, I was seemingly shot out of something, almost like a tube, and caught by a doctor with a couple nurses standing by. I recall thinking to myself, “don’t hit me, i’m awake”, The Dr. grabbed me by my feet as I slid by, picked me up and whacked me on my butt, I let out a roar like any a new born would. The next thing I recall is being picked up by a nurse, propped up on her left arm to view the scenery, at first I thought she just wanted me to see what was what, (later on I would think differently of the matter). What I saw was like a stadium of babies, babies just everywhere, never in my wildest dreams would I have thought all those other babies would look just like me, (but eventually I would learn that they would). What the nurse was actually doing was looking around to see if any other babies were awake to see us leave the room, and when they were not, we left. This is how you become the first out the door, (leaving all those others behind, to one day resent the one who is inherently different for some unknown reason).

    The next thing I recall is being in a crib as a parade of strangers strolls by my left side and views the latest offspring. One woman blurts out “Oh he’s beautiful” I recall thinking “lady I look just like any other baby”. The next thing I remember is being at the beach, it was cape cod and I was about one year old, the first child of what I can later say was an unwanted child. I recall being picked up and brought out into the ocean and left there as my parents sat idly by waiting for something, that something turned out to be a big wave that nearly drown me, I came too only to see my parents laughing their asses off on the beach at something, I recall thinking “I nearly drown out there and all you two can do is laugh about it”. Next I recall, at 18 months, being placed into a bed as a new offspring had taken my comfortable crib from me, I loved that crib, I would rock that crib so violently that it would roll across room, my own form of rock & roll. By now I could talk, and I was scared of rolling out of the bed at night and injuring myself, so I made my parents aware of my fears and soon after a rail was placed on the open side of the single bed, a delight to kid who didn’t want to fall twice as far as he was big.

    Life for me was quite an adventure after that, always under the threat of doing something wrong and having to face an angry old man coming home from a stressful days work. We moved around a lot as a family and one day the old man went one step to far with the physical abuse,(the mental abuse never subsided from either parent), and I was determined from that day forward to run away from the old man until he could cool his jets. It worked, and it also turned me into a rather fast runner as I would later help set high school and college track records, a fun thing to do, until you wake up one day and have to unwind all the dangerous tangles of your past.

    We moved around frequently for very strange reasons one being satans desires to have everyone be just like him or pay the consequences of his wrath. Things like, do young children or are young children, supposed to wake themselves up sexually or do they have help from a parent or older sibling? I mean what child shouldn’t enjoy all pleasures of life including sex? Well, me for one.

    It turns out that doing so places one in a very precarious situation that later has severe consequences not only for the child, but society as a whole also. Things that ultimately can lead to satanism and a hindering of human progress along with a whole host of costly societal human ills. On the male side he is limited as far as useful tools are concerned and becomes a daily addict in search of like minded fools of which there are many. The woman side is a bit more complicated, there are basically 3 categories of woman much like the 3 bears or perhaps the 3 different characters accompanying Dorothy on her journey back to Kansas, there is really meant to be a 4th type of woman(perhaps Dorothy) but woman are so complicated that this 4th type is missing in today’s universe primarily because satan has overrun the entire universe in search of his (or sometimes her) own selfish needs, this we have proof of because of the missing link.

    Now woman freely give their money away where as men hide it in their pants to be used as evidence for or against them at a future date, mostly against. You see those feelings which privately go to ones head as a child later show up as a breast less and trapped woman, or small and often useless man, if the feelings are not brought to the brain, that does not mean they go away, they show up in the form of breasts to later trigger even greater feelings which in most cases can not or should not be denied, for if love is not found by the age of 20, her burden is carried around and then must be dealt with, as gravity soon has it’s say with this most complicated creature. Now the whole point is not to reach the proper ages (17-19) and then live in sexual bliss, for gravity is rather unforgiving in this manner also. The object is to overcome gravity and live in everlasting comfort, if it were not for all the strong sexual desires and lack of male tools to overcome the strong desires.

    Now skunk found love at the right time and naturally wanted to give this wild gift where ever he felt it was best needed, (I mean all guys think that all guys have the same unit and desires at this young age) but the truth was far different than the belief, and the rigors and trials of men’s life also are affected by time and gravity leading to a disfunction of man and men just as the woman has dealt with her pains and desires.

    To overcome the effects of gravity, and accomplish everlasting life, has proven to be a timely and arduous task only achieved by a few different people over some 4.5 billion or more years, always missing the elusive and most important, 4th link. Now skunk thought he had found a mate just a few years after discovering love, until love really came to town one day, and being young and confused, and not receiving any guidance from his other half, (she was at the time just as confused, yet had all the tools, as did I) proved to himself that something was wrong here and had to break off the relationship.

    Now skunk did eventually marry, only to find in the long run he had found the one person who had somehow accounted for all 3 different types of woman, the trapped 2 flat chested, one escaping gravity, one not, and finally the third having resolved her sexual issues,(to satans dismay because he wanted everyone to be in his likeness which only lead to insanity and death), the one missing naturally is the one who has resolved her sexual issues, while at the same time having escaped the effects of gravity.

    Yes, the effects of gravity, it was found that in this most important case, shortness proved to be beneficial, and possibly even critical, when all things were said and done, because the human being is a most fragile creature and ready to break it’s zen and lose it’s ability to achieve this extremely timely and arduous task, trust me, having had an out of body experience and overcome it, efficiency is the name of the game, and beauty included in the same.

    Now skunks largest problem today is that everyone believes things should be done according to their own selfish beliefs in order to accomplish their own selfish goals,(my wife and cousin included) not realizing that these tasks have never been accomplished in the whole history of the universe, but should somehow be accomplished now in order for them to yield their past accomplishments.

    These thoughts could not be further from the truth, and so the evolution of all of skunks experiences had brought us to this time and place, waiting for the 4th link to be created where upon success, satan and his followers shall be spontaneously combusted after having built the world to his likeness only to relinquish it all in a vain attempt to control the masses to his liking.

    Failure only results in a wiping out of time and history so the process can begin again, as it has so many times in the past, only to bring humans to this very point in time and space once again. Success or failure? it’s a crap shoot, a most amusing and entertaining concept naturally dismissed to the dust bin of history as a science fiction so “normal” life might carry on as it in theory must do, and always has.

    Go figure Batman, which will it be this time?

    We really don’t know Robin, we really don’t know, only time shall tell, and we don’t have much of that either.

  15. When first you create the lie,
    And then you live the lie,
    And then you become the lie,
    And then you spread the lie,

    Life can become, one big lie.

    Could politics be the one big lie?

  16. “Lies are so yesterday”, she sez in her best Valley Girl pose.

    Now it is all about the great DELUSION.

    Anarchy is being spread via an “app”.

  17. The same question remains. Will “satan” Spoons feed his followers into the history books, or Will “satan” Spoons pay the consequences for having the blood of the lord on his hands? Everyone is anxiously awaiting the results.

  18. Judging by the amount of censoring involved, and the shenanigans with “statistics” and the psychobabble hysteria deployed against the “normal” human mind – this is innate in the type of “mind” we have – psychobabble deployed by “shamans” wants to convince you that what is “anti-intuitive” is the truth you can’t experience. Say wha’?:

    “36:5.5 (402.2) We are handicapped for words adequately to designate these seven adjutant mind-spirits. They are ministers of the lower levels of experiential mind, and they may be described, in the order of evolutionary attainment, as follows:

    36:5.6 (402.3) 1. The spirit of intuition — quick perception, the primitive physical and inherent reflex instincts, the directional and other self-preservative endowments of all mind creations; the only one of the adjutants to function so largely in the lower orders of animal life and the only one to make extensive functional contact with the nonteachable levels of mechanical mind.

    36:5.7 (402.4) 2. The spirit of understanding — the impulse of co-ordination, the spontaneous and apparently automatic association of ideas. This is the gift of the co-ordination of acquired knowledge, the phenomenon of quick reasoning, rapid judgment, and prompt decision.

    36:5.8 (402.5) 3. The spirit of courage — the fidelity endowment — in personal beings, the basis of character acquirement and the intellectual root of moral stamina and spiritual bravery. When enlightened by facts and inspired by truth, this becomes the secret of the urge of evolutionary ascension by the channels of intelligent and conscientious self-direction.

    36:5.9 (402.6) 4. The spirit of knowledge — the curiosity-mother of adventure and discovery, the scientific spirit; the guide and faithful associate of the spirits of courage and counsel; the urge to direct the endowments of courage into useful and progressive paths of growth.

    36:5.10 (402.7) 5. The spirit of counsel — the social urge, the endowment of species co-operation; the ability of will creatures to harmonize with their fellows; the origin of the gregarious instinct among the more lowly creatures.

    36:5.11 (402.8) 6. The spirit of worship — the religious impulse, the first differential urge separating mind creatures into the two basic classes of mortal existence. The spirit of worship forever distinguishes the animal of its association from the soulless creatures of mind endowment. Worship is the badge of spiritual-ascension candidacy.

    36:5.12 (402.9) 7. The spirit of wisdom — the inherent tendency of all moral creatures towards orderly and progressive evolutionary advancement. This is the highest of the adjutants, the spirit co-ordinator and articulator of the work of all the others. This spirit is the secret of that inborn urge of mind creatures which initiates and maintains the practical and effective program of the ascending scale of existence; that gift of living things which accounts for their inexplicable ability to survive and, in survival, to utilize the co-ordination of all their past experience and present opportunities for the acquisition of all of everything that all of the other six mental ministers can mobilize in the mind of the organism concerned. Wisdom is the acme of intellectual performance. Wisdom is the goal of a purely mental and moral existence.”

    Every single “ism” that is being tatooed on to experientially earned culture since 1934 is a creation meant to destroy THINKING with a normal human mind. Worshiping “gold” will always go nowhere.

    So what does this say about all the religions of authority – NOW – that instead of being full of joy that another epochal revelation has been placed in their hands to level the playing field against the “orgy of death and destruction” started by rebel caretakers of humanity – they are HYSTERICAL about anyone reading the BOOK. Yes it is a book, why would it not be in an “information age”? You want a scapegoat to die for YOUR sins, again? Like Jesus is stupid?

    All you can do is vote. Vote with what you DO, not what you say. Your vote will NEVER be “lost” or transformed to a “for the devil” vote (so I do not lose my shtty slave labor job) by the angels keeping track of the accounting.

    Why are the self-proclaimed caretakers of our evolving immortal souls – the all-male religionists of authority – entrenched in the secular power centers of “religion” NOT GRATEFUL TO GOD WITH AN EPOCHAL REVELATION OF TRUTH HE GAVE THEM?

    What *IS* their problem? The “Spirit of Courage” circuit needs an “app” to function?

    It was the PERFECT way to code-talk with each other in bringing down the “economy” – on Urantia websites. The “devil”‘s character and cosmically insane mind was in full view – but he had a ream of psychobabblists making him “normal”, and worse, better at “math”.

    More misery for others = more $$$$ for ME ME ME

    Greed is “good”.
