JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: CHARLIE ROSE’S RIDICULOUS INTERVIEW WITH HILLARY CLINTON – WHAT IT REALLY SHOWS US – AMERICA IN A BAD PLACE   Leave a comment

Hillary Again Says Putin ‘Kills Journalists’ – Charlie Rose Doesn’t Blink RI
So here his Hillary on his show Monday night with her truly delusional ideas about why she lost the election.

You don’t need to call him names.

Charlie Rose has always been a mediocre interviewer/journalist. He could only pass for deep in America.

His interviews, many years ago when I last heard him, always left you feeling as though you had heard a lot of inflated nothing, much like the feeling you get from eating a McDonald’s hamburger.

He spent years on PBS, and for anyone who really knows that insipid network, that pretty much says it all.

You cannot be a hard-hitting journalist on any American television network, much less PBS which is always just getting by fighting political battles in Washington over its very existence. Controversy simply is not allowed, unless its the kind of manufactured fantasy-controversy you get from a Hillary Clinton or a Donald Trump.

That Hillary still goes about speaking the way she does is pathetic. Here is a major American political figure with nothing to say except attacking a foreign leader and blaming every official in her own party and the last president’s government for her election loss. She is as devoid of real content as the McDonald’s hamburger.

In case you hadn’t noticed, there is an underlying theme in this shabby interview, a theme which literally is symbolic of contemporary America.

Nothing that really matters is ever discussed, from terrible domestic problems of poverty and racism to the horrible colonial wars which have killed and crippled millions and to the overwhelming role of big money in national politics which literally reduces the country to a plutocracy.

No, a national issue in today’s United States is whether football players are being Patriotic enough when they peacefully protest, their gesture being so mild and insignificant you’d miss it if you blinked.

America simply cannot tolerate real talk or criticism of any kind, and It lives in an intellectually-mushy environment of fantasy-problems and political correctness, except when the topic comes around to foreigners, whether foreign leaders who do not take their lead from America or migrants of any kind, all of them being pretty much regarded as horrible and undesirable.

This is an unhealthy national intellectual environment, to say the least. It perhaps reflects all the doubts and uncertainties Americans feel as they sense the coming of a new world, one which before too long will not regard America’s view as quite so important as it has been since WWII. That is a hard thing for any highly privileged and fortunate group to accept, their coming loss of privilege with a threatening set of changed circumstances clearly approaching.

A world where the views of other states are important, with compromises to be made and international arrangements and institutions for governing relationships, something which is highly repulsive to a large part of Americans, both Trump’s Trailer Park supporters and supporters of Hillary’s vicious War Party. In a word, the decline of the American Empire, something whose first indications can clearly be felt.
