Readers send me emails asking why I ever supported Trump when he was the Establishment's candidate.
If Trump was the Establishment's candidate,
The failure to put two
and two together is extraordinary. Trump declared war on the
Establishment throughout the presidential campaign and in his
He expected the Establishment, like his employees, to jump to his will, and he did not know Washington or who to appoint to support his goals. He has been totally defeated in his intention to normalize relations with Russia.
Instead, we are faced
China preparing for war. In other
words, the same outcome that
Hillary would have achieved.
You have to go back in history to find one:
I fought both battles for
Reagan, and I still have the bruises...
A few people sold out the
American middle class, which is shrinking away.
The Establishment has
succeeded in so confusing Trump that he has declared the
Establishment's war against the non-establishment leaders in Latin
If the Democrats, whose politics is Identity Politics, get the House and/or Senate, Trump will be completely impotent.
The Establishment hopes to drive
the lesson home to every future presidential candidate to never
again appeal to the people over the vested interests of the
The oligarchy rules, and the people, no matter how they suffer under the oligarch's rule, must submit and accept. No more presidential candidates, please, who represent the people.
This is the lesson that
the Establishment hopes to teach the rabble in the midterm
If America had an independent media, the election would be about the dangerous situation created by Washington that has caused two militarily powerful countries to prepare for war with the US. This is the most serious development of my lifetime.
Reagan worked for has been overthrown for the material interests
of the power and profit of the military/security complex.
...was accepted by the insouciant (North) Americans.
Those responsible for
these lies, which have caused massive war crimes, for which US
administrations should be indicted, are feted and rich. The rest of
us have experienced the loss of civil liberty and privacy. Any
individual in the way of the police state is mowed down.
this article makes clear, the
offshoring of American manufacturing and industry has reduced the US
military to dependence on Chinese suppliers. And the Trump
administration starts trouble with China...!
...the populations of
which refuse to become victims of Washington's overthrow of the
democratic elected Ukrainian government and installation by
"America's first black president" of a neo-nazi regime.
The completely stupid
dope that Trump appointed Secretary of State just declared (the
utter fool should not be permitted to open his mouth) that
Washington was going to drive Iran into the ground unless the
government agreed to behave like a normal state.
He means a state that takes its marching orders from Washington. Iran has not invaded any country.
The government in power
is the continuation of the government that overthrew the Shah, a
dictator imposed on Iran by Washington when Washington and London
overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran.
The vaunted Israeli army
is only good for murdering women and children in the disarmed Gaza
But, of course, America has no independent media.
It has a collection of whores known as,
Without an honest and independent media, there is no accountability of government. America has no honest and independent media.
Therefore, in America there is no accountability of government. "The deplorables" are faced with a dilemma. The president they elected has been overcome by the establishment and cannot represent them.
Instead, Trump gives his
John Bolton as National
Security Advisor and warmonger Pompeo as US Secretary of
State. He might as well have appointed Adolf Hitler. In
fact, Hitler was a more reasonable person.
Cultural Marxism and Identity Politics have divided the American population into victims and victimizers. The true victimizers and true victims are not part of the picture, which is a construction that serves ideological agendas.
It is not the oligarchy that is the victimizer, but the Trump-voting white male. It is not the multi-billionaires, but the marginalized former manufacturing and industrial work force that is the source of oppression.
This former work force is
black and white, but the Democratic Party's Identity Politics has
blacks and whites at each other's throats.
The people, with few exceptions, are not smart enough to continue to exist. Perhaps the outcome of the elections tomorrow (November 06, 2018) will change my mind.
If the vote goes to the
Establishment, all is lost...
