Jurgens tweets about Hilary Clinton campaign and Obama's weak stand on Iran & Cuba

Jurgens posted two items, the first one being about Hilary Clinton's new presidential campaign:

I think what he's alluding to is her husband Bill's corruption, which includes this alarming news about sexual abuse he committed in the past. Hilary's own defense of a criminal who committed a rape in 1975 explains why it may not be so surprising if she's not disturbed by Bill's past offenses. If she stands by a man she doesn't need, she's making one of many big mistakes in her career, among them her recent email scandal.

Now, here's the second tweet, about Obama's capitulations to Iran, and his meeting with Cuba's Raul Castro:

One thing is certain. Cuba is a real communist-run cesspool, where many of the cars today are very old models, and few new ones are available (and those that are new, I assume, could be Russian-made Ladas), since the elder Castro destroyed much of the island's ability to make money through decent means, putting the citizens in poverty. And it's bad that any politicians have allowed this to go unchallenged for so many years, ditto Iran's own sharia-run autocracy since 1979. Lucky some American states are enacting their own special sanctions now.

Somebody else warned Jurgens that if he keeps on with comments like these, he'll end up like Chuck Dixon has. Sadly, that could happen, no matter how fiercely loyal Jurgens is to DC and Marvel's current visions, and if it does, don't be surprised if people like Ron Marz, Gail Simone and Kurt Busiek won't defend him. But that doesn't mean Jurgens should be perturbed. After all, both companies have been writing themselves into corners for a long time, and he honestly doesn't need to go along with them if they continue to disrespect sensible audiences. Indeed, that's what I find appalling about how Jurgens still operates (and he still stands by the 1992 Death of Superman joke); why keep on working for the Big Two when they've become such selfish, closed shops? My advice for now is that he keep saying what he thinks and not let the possibility of a blacklist worry him. Yet at the same time, I honestly think he should quit working for them if they're going to stick with such poor MO. A writer who does have talent shouldn't waste it on editorial mandates that trash creativity. I think he'd be better off working for smaller companies now, until DiDio and Quesada are replaced.

Is there any POSITIVE news of any sorts lately, or have they all given up on hopes and turned to despair?

I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
