Trump and the Fantastic End of American Exceptionalism

Humanity can’t expect to improve its lot when it places its hopes in immoral ‘leaders’.

That was me who said that. In all seriousness, though, that’s the predicament we all find ourselves on this planet: Who will we choose as our global leaders?

The USA has always pride on being the ‘shining beacon of hope of the world’, the example to be followed towards a society of free, wealthy and healthy men and women and children. The example we have given the world today is of how to achieve the opposite.

All over the world there are now politicians imitating our first lewd president in all his immoral regalia. That’s the first of three signs of the end of American exceptionalism.

europe

(That word, “opposite“, is significant in describing where humanity is heading to; I use it through out this post.)

Trump’s example didn’t  happen serendipitously. Nations are in a state of collective chaos, politically, economically, morally…Trump is the most egregious evidence that this is the condition in the USA too. Americans have always seen themselves as apart from the rest of the world, haven’t they?

But they have officially joined the rest of the planet in its maddening race to the bottom of the cesspool. Trump’s followers, including the zombie American Left who supports him, say that the appalling conflict of interest of him mixing his personal business with that of running our government, is not big deal.

Anyway, that chaos has been slow-cooking for the last 50 years, and the master cook’s name is Globalism.

conflict

The American consumers eating this cook’s garbage elected the Apprentice guy to do their job for them, to tell the GOP’s members who didn’t support him “You are fired”. Poor things; they have no contact with reality except through ‘reality TV‘.

I italicized “GOP’s members’ because his followers are not complaining about him filling his cabinet with ultra-right wing Wall Street and globalists men; the opposite of what they elected him to do.

Despite the above, the ‘end of American exceptionalism’ comes courtesy of the globalists, not of Trump or the deplorables. They own this orange mess; they know it too. That’s the second sign of the end of our claim to ‘exceptionalism’, that the globalists know they gave us the Trump virus that sickened this nation and, effectively, destroyed the ‘exceptional’ image.

Continuing with the ‘cooking’ metaphor, our master cook, Larry Summers, knows exactly what’s wrong with his recipe:

Donald Trump’s rise goes beyond his demagogic appeal. It is a reflection of the political psychology of frustration – people see him as responding to their fears about the modern world order, an outsider fighting for those who have been left behind.

And they see the disintegration that accompanies global integration, as communities suffer when big employers lose to foreign competitors.

That last one is very spicy: “the disintegration that accompanies global integration‘. That is a beautiful example of dialectic logic, the unity of opposites or contraries. He is telling the nature of globalism: a major contradiction in that it benefits a few but controls everybody’s way of life. It explains regular folks contradictory behaviors. It’s like a bad marriage: can’t live with him, can’t live without him.

The reader surely can see who gets the end of the stick in that quote. It is valid to say that globalism benefits only a few, or the opposite statement, few benefit from globalism. Our master cook agrees:

a project carried out by elites for elites with little consideration for the interests of ordinary people

With a recipe like that, it’s a matter of time when you will have to close the kitchen.

Elites can continue pursuing and defending integration, hoping to win sufficient popular support — but… this strategy may have run its course.

Globalism is kaput, it has caused all the havoc humanity can tolerate without violently revolting against it by sticking globalists’ heads in the proverbial pitchforks. The globalists have armaments against pitchforks, though. That’s the way they are going to protect themselves from the “angry voters”.

Trump is the evidence that “this strategyhas run its course. He is not the shining hero coming to rescue humanity, he is the opposite. He is like one of the horsemen of the apocalypse coming to deliver the last blow to humanity. But don’t say that to his local and worldwide followers.

We saw during the primaries and presidential election this man’s true character. He is amoral, his goal in life is to amass as much profit as he can, without any moral considerations. Well, you saw the picture, I don’t need to dwell on it.

The point is: Humanity can’t expect to improve its lot when by placing its hopes in immoral ‘leaders’.

I propose to you that this global crisis will continue for the next 20 years, at least; and it will get worse before it starts to subside. Citizens will continue acting and moving in opposite direction of their own self interests, as I have tried to show here.

Trump will drag our nation to the swamp; with him, there’s no other path but to the bottom. The owners of the media conglomerate, the Murdoch’s, the Jeff Bezos’, the Bloomberg’s, the Mortimer Zuckerman’s and the Carlos Slim’s (owns The New York Times) of the world will make sure you keep moving to the bottom and against your own interests. That’s what they did when they gave you ’emails scandal’ 24/7 so you would feel repulsed by Hillary Clinton and vote against her. That’s what happened, didn’t it?

media

Small group of media moguls, from left to right: Murdoch, Jeff Bezos, Mortimer Zuckerrman, Bloomy, and Mexican Carlos Slim. Did you know that The New York Times is owned by that Mexican guy? Just saying.

These media’s corrupt souls decide what you read, how to read it, and how to react to what they feed you. In that way they will guide your actions like master puppeteer. More contradictions: Trump called them “lying media”, implying they publish propaganda; the people agreed with him, but continue to trust the dishonest media”.

The only way I see the USA regaining its place as that beacon of hope is if its citizens intelligently rise to confront both Trump and the globalist oligarchy. But I don’t have much hope for that. The American people is still in love with capitalism and with globalism. I have described how they act in opposition to what they say they want.

The media and the intellectually spent American Left  have convinced the masses that the problem is not Trump or the globalists but the Clinton’s. They too own that virus.

To that effect, Sanders, some Democrats and the Leftists are trying to convince GOP republicans in the Electoral College to vote for another republican, Kasich! That’s the third sign we lost our prestige as leaders of the world.

With that display of intellectual dishonesty, the so-called leftists are telling us ‘don’t count on us to guide you or to give you the best thought out political analysis‘.

America has lost its place as example to humanity. Who will claim that torch in the near future?

A House Divided: Oligarchs and Conservatives Eating Each Other Out

Of all the important unreported political issues since this elections cycle, the most important, in my view, is the division up there were our gods of money and corruption live. There is a battle going on between globalists and conservatives of all ideological flavors and wallet size. It’s globalist vs globalists vs conservatives vs conservatives vs globalist. Phew!

Politico’s article Trump’s GOP takeover begins barely touches on the topic. A more important sign was Larry Summers’ article in the WaPo last week on Trump’s Carrier deal. It was an all out attack on Trump for his brand of capitalism.

That’s what matter to the oligarchy, their brand of capitalism, globalism. But Trump’s version of it is ‘I do it my way’.

The news that Trump had ongoing ‘conversations’ with Taiwan’s now president since 2015 to influence the USA’s Asian policies before he became president is a bone of contention too. Some current and former generals and members of the CIA, all representatives of globalists’ interests, spoke against Trump’s behavior. The importance of that incident is, in part, that the arms dealers and Wall Street financiers’ front man, GOP’s Pieribus, went there to negotiate some quid pro quo with then Taiwan’s presidential candidate Tsa; it was not for dinner for two in Chinatown.

As Summers implied in the article mentioned above, Trump is acting like a modern El Duce, and globalists are not happy with any forms of ‘state corporatism’. Trump’s version of that economic/political model is businesses run by his decree.

The primaries showed the divisions, but few people noticed, and the media was determined not to make an issue of it. Summers and other globalists penned a letter to the American voters in March expressing their hatred of Trump. (Search Larry Summers on my blog for related posts.) By that time,  the GOP was already broken in half between Trump’ supporters and nevertrump. While they told the public that the divisions were over his racists comments, those who know the GOP better know they are racists. The real divisions were over Trump’s behind the curtain dealings with businesses and, now we know, governments.

Remember Priebus not disowning Trump during the primaries and presidential campaign? He was already working for him behind the curtains with Taiwanese Tsa. That’s why he couldn’t ‘disown’ him: they owned each other.

When the gods that rule our lives bicker with each other, they use the little people as weapon. They take their battles to the mainstream media, each side trying to manipulate our opinions and trying to guide us to act the way they need. Vote for this, no, vote for that…

But more important, who has the power to give Trump a coup d’etat?

I propose the divisions are that bad. I’m trying to collect the ‘evidence’ to prove my suspicions. Until then…

Keep your eyes open, people.

 

 

 

Larry Summers on Trump’s Carrier Agreement: Airs of Dictatorship

Lawrence (Larry) Summers is back to express his hatred of Trump, but it is getting uglier.

In an article at the WaPo on Dec 2, The upcoming Trump administration, the Carrier deal and the rule of law, Summers called the Donald “a possibly vindictive president“. That qualifier (“possibly”) is there only as legal protection against a vindictive president who might sue him for libel. Summers means Trump IS  a vindictive president, and implies in the article that Trump is a dictator.

…to lever Carrier into doing what he wanted.

summers

Presidents have enormous latent power and it is the custom of restraint in its use that is one of the important differences between us and banana republics.

I think his ill feelings towards Trump matter. Not only he is expressing fears of the people in the article, but there are rumbles about the tweeting President building a wall of generals around him, with the implications that he is aspiring to be a dictator. That that type of conversation is happening at all at the highest levels of our oligarchy is significant. That’s the focus of this post.

Political Context

First of all, the one fact no ones talks about: There is a huge division/fight going on up there at the higher levels of our nation’s political and economic hierarchy. There are ideological fissures on each camp individually, the globalists and the conservatives, and on how to attack the opposite camp or to make deals with each other. ‘We the people’ are the cannon fodder they are using against each other.

This has been going on since the primaries. Trump not only achieved dividing the GOP, he also divided the globalists and pitted conservatives against each other, let alone against the globalists.

The pledge to not divide the party.

It has been a long time since anyone masterfully used the adage ‘Divide and conquer to his benefit. Trump did it.

It is clear that he used the adage intentionally because anyone running for president knows that attacking the globalists is not going to garnish him friends in that camp. It is impossible to believe that he did it unknowingly. At this time in the game, after he succeeded in overturning democratic votes in his favor, the idea that he is a ‘moron’ is not helpful. He may be mentally unstable, but that is not synonym with low intelligence. Actually, it is a tightly held stereotype that mental illness is synonym with low IQ, when the two are not necessarily related.

Trump is not a moron, he is Machiavellian.

mach

Why is the mainstream media (MSM) not writing about that division? Answer: Because they don’t want you to see them fighting among themselves. Not only it would be unseemly, it is simply not good political practice to let your enemies (‘we the people’ in this case) see your house in disarray.

oligarchy

I’m a good political observer but not a good analyst. So, I’m just saying.

Enter Larry Summers to relegate Trump “to the margins of our national life,”

We know who Larry Summers is (see full bio, but suffice it for the moment to know he is an American über-globalist) and that his opinions matter to the members of this nation’s economic and political hierarchy. But you may not know of his hatred of Trump and the reasons for it. Let me give you the skinny on Summers’ contempt for Trump, as I see it.

We all know Trump started his primaries campaign attacking the globalists, without calling them globalists. It was not an oversight; it was intentional, just as he intentionally calls them “the lying and dishonest media” but never calls what they print ‘propaganda‘. He knows good salesmanship mandates letting his customers fill the blanks: at a not-so-subconscious level, we all know he means the media writes ‘propaganda‘. Calling these elements by their name (globalism and propaganda) would be inefficient because then there would be backlash from those trying to refute the malice he ascribes to globalists and Murdock and his media pals. So, he just calls them “lying” this and that.

Yeap, it’s about propaganda. The media gives you propaganda. The people sees it, but can’t call it by its name. Trump shampooed their brains.

That in itself is propaganda by innuendo. In doing so he avoids any responsibility later on for not delivering on his ‘attacks’ on globalists. It is exactly what he did this week with the Carrier agreement incident:

It was all news to Trump, who was taken aback at the idea that he promised to keep Carrier jobs in the United States.

carriere

“I actually said I didn’t make it. When they played it I said, ‘I did make it, but I didn’t mean it quite that way,’ ” Trump said. It was, he explained: “A euphemism. I was talking about Carrier like all other companies from here on in, because they made the decision a year and a half ago.” How Donald Trump forgot about his promise to keep Carrier jobs in the U.S. (WaPo)

But the fact remains that he ran on letting people believe he was attacking both the globalists and the media when, as you can see, he was just shampooing his followers brains.

Larry Summers and those pesky Angry Voters

And Larry Summers was incensed about it, not because he pitied the poor ‘deplorables‘ being manipulated, but because he could see that Trump was running on voters anger. Angry at what were they? Well, Summers knew the answer perfectly well, as he described in his blog:

Yet a revolt against global integration is under way in the west. The four leading candidates for president of the US — Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz — all oppose the principal free-trade initiative of this period: the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Proposals by Mr Trump, the Republican frontrunner, to wall off Mexico, abrogate trade agreements and persecute Muslims are far more popular than he is.

The core of the revolt against globalintegration, though, is not ignorance. It is a sense, not wholly unwarranted, that it is a project carried out by elites for elites with little consideration for the interests of ordinary people — who see the globalisation agenda as being set by big companies playing off one country against another.

Just for the record: I started this blog on February 1 when the MSM was ‘disconcerted’ by the phenomenon of angry voters. They would tell their audience that they didn’t know where that anger lifting Trump was coming from. But I said it in my first post, it was Trump’s anti-globalist message. If I knew it, so did they, for I’m not that bright as to be the only one seeing it. The reason the media supposedly couldn’t figure it out was precisely because Trump, opportunistically, never used the word “anti-globalism”, and they were not about to open that can of worms.  So they faked ignorance is my point.

god

Back to Larry

Summers was angry at Trump for instigating voters anger against his ideology of globalism. Globalists don’t need people furious at them, they need to pacify them. Trump was making the situation worse by calling names, like Carrier company.

And so it happened that Larry couldn’t take it any more and let ‘we the people’ have it. He actually made a threat to  the American voters in an article he published at the WaPo on March titled Donald Trump is a serious threat to American democracy:

The United States has always been governed by the authority of ideas, rather than the idea of authority. Nothing is more important than to be clear to all Americans that the tradition of vigorous political debate and compromise will continue. The sooner Donald Trump is relegated to the margins of our national life, the better off we and the world will be.

That was a powerful expression of anger. Summers hates Trump, no doubt about it.

Implied in that paragraph is the threat that, if the voters don’t ostracize Trump from “our national life”, not simply defeat him, but erase him from our society, America may end up being “governed by the idea of authority”. The “tradition of political debate” is conditioned, in that article, on erasing Trump from our society.

It is not Trump who would usher such horrible destiny to our nation; it is the action of the voters if they elect him president.

More on that open letter to the American voters.

I have had a strong point of view on each of the last ten presidential elections, but never before had I feared that what I regarded as the wrong outcome would in the long sweep of history risk grave damage to the American project.

The “wrong outcome” is the wrong presidential election outcome: Voters electing Trump, but it is implied, not openly stated. Larry Summers hates Trump, but he feared the angry voters. Where did all that fear and loathing come from? Angry voters elevating both Trump and Sanders; they are the source of angst in the globalists’ mind.

The globalists can’t tolerate another wrong outcome like Brexit. And politicians like Trump (he is a politician) make the job difficult to them. And this brings us to Summers’ recent open letter to the public: The upcoming Trump administration, the Carrier deal and the rule of law

A House Divided

In it, Summers carefully hints that he thinks Trump is a dictator, as discussed up there.  All of us anti-Trump have said it since the primaries, it just so happens that now it is becoming clear. But Summers and us aren’t the only ones fearing a Donald military dictatorship. See Trump is surrounding himself with generals. That’s dangerous. 

Once again, Larry Summers shows us that his biggest fear is the misguided masses of angry voters:

Some of the worst abuses of power are not those that leaders inflict on their people. They are the acts that the people demand from their leaders. I fear in a way that is more fundamental than a bad tax policy or tariff we have started down the road of changing the operating assumptions of our capitalism. I hope I am wrong but I expect that as a consequence we are going to be not only poorer but less free.

This long post is an effort at warning people that these are definitely unstable and dangerous political times. The MSM is not covering the real news that matter to us: that our political/economical masters are divided and bickering with each other. And when that happens, we pay for the broken dishes.

The globalists admit that their fun is coming to an end, that globalism can’t continue to benefit a few without the rest of humanity rising against them.

The globalist oligarchy and the conservative elite ARE afraid of the people’s anger. The know there are good reasons for us being angry at them. But they own all the power of the nation: the military, the police, armaments…and the MSM with which to manage us into moving whichever way they want us to go. Oh, they got the silly millennials to dump Hillary Clinton. That’s control.

Donald Trump is building a wall, indeed, but of military personnel all around himself. You saw what he said about his promises about Carrier: he didn’t mean a word he said.

dictator

El Duce?

So, he took the presidency for his personal power. That’s the sign of a dictator, isn’t it.

I hope this is not the USA empire collapsing in front of our eyes. Larry Summers’ interests are not ours. He fears us more than anyone, because ‘us’ can be manipulated like Plasticine, or grab our pitchforks and run after them.

Keep your eye open. There’s more to come.

 

 

 

Summing Up the Elections: The Horrors, the Fun, and the Historic

SUMMING UP THE ELECTIONS

This presidential election cycle has been a wonderful mix of horror and entertainment, simultaneously. Call it whatever you want but ‘boring’, which is what typical presidential elections are.

Four issues stand out, in my view, in this election, which I discuss in this post, namely: the “political outsider”, racism, ‘class warfare” (aka ‘voter anger’), and misogyny in the historic time of the first woman running for the presidency of the USA.  I’ll start with the horrors, though.

The Horror

The horrific character of this election is not solely due to that magnificent mediocre-entertainer-turned-GOP-slayer-and-Democratic-party-unifier, do I have to call his name? OK, the Pussy-grabber. You see? Horror and fun simultaneously.

The Late Show Screengrab

More horror has been elicited in the hearts of sane people by the response in some sectors of our body politic to the Donald’s unnatural presidential campaign than by he himself. Consider the following.

When a person lacks the ability to feel shame and remorse (guilt), the sky is the limit to the cruelty one can inflict in other humans and animals with nonsense excuses. Shame and remorse are the legs on which morality stands, remove them and you have personal and social chaos; remove them and you have verbal and physical aggression dominating human interactions.

Donald Trump showed himself to be the walking poster-boy of an amoral human being, bragging about not abiding by ‘political correct” attitudes. His lack of shame and remorse allows him to insult and humiliate ANYONE who displeases him or is in his way to grab something, scam the poor and the rich (in that he is ‘fair’), treat women as veritable sexual objects, propose heartless policies, discriminate and show racism…The man has no limits on hatred nor a minuscule sense of loyalty to anyone but himself.

But what has truly scare the bejesus out of sane people is how many people are out there who find AFFINITY with his behavior or who are gingerly dismissing as ‘clownish’ precisely the statements that show his lack of morals, and propose voting for him. Dismissing Hitler’ shameless racism is what brought him to power, didn’t it?

Publicly out there defending Trump’s racist and misogynist remarks are Hollywood entertainers and people in our nations’ political right and left wings.

Susan Sarandon (and ex hubby Tim Robbins) as Trump Apologist. They went public to say that Trump is “less dangerous than Hillary”.

Mainstream America is not aware of how the Left, in its totality (except the people at The Nation, who support Hillary), joined the right wingers and became Trump Apologists to explain to the working class why, despite his racism and misogyny,  he is a better alternative for them than Hillary Clinton. Their support of the Donald is more pornographic than the right wingers screwing America. The immorality of the Left supporting this racist and misogynist elitist ‘billionaire’ has been the topic of this inartful blog since February.

Trump may be a pompous, clownish ass, but Hillary Clinton is a world-class dissembler whose most prominent personality trait happens to be pure, old-fashioned, unbridled Ambition.” 4 Reasons Not to Fear Donald Trump by David Macaray [a man, of course] June 3, 2016 at Counter Punch

And of course,  had the mainstream media (MSM) (MSM = NYT, WaPo, Cable News stations…) refuse to give free coverage to the Don’s absurd campaign from the beginning, we wouldn’t be now running like headless chicken trying to fend off this  third-rate new millennium Hitler. C’mon, at least Hitler knew what he was doing and was ‘good’ at it.

Then there was the horrifying spectacle of Sanders supporters following Hillary Clinton around and hurling insults at her and threatening to ‘kill’ her, while he was  vilifying her. It was horrifying, not only because it was unfair and disrespectful to her, but because most of us knew that Sanders was feeding Trump the ammo to shoot at Hillary. Trump later adopted the insults and thank him for them.

Hillary Clinton’s rally in California was cut short this week when a group of Bernie Sanders backers broke out into a loud protest, with some of the demonstrators even turning their anger against children who were backing Clinton.http://www.inquisitr.com/3070700/hillary-clintons-rally-shut-down-by-angry-bernie-sanders-supporters-protesters-reportedly-ripped-up-young-girls-pro-clinton-sign/#sarAjmyeljyU22yp.99

Interestingly enough, Sanders NEVER apologized to Hillary publicly for those names (“cooked”, etc.,) nor made any gestures to denounce Trump for appropriating his negative sobriquet.

The Fun

Well, I’ll let you identified what was entertaining to you in this campaign. Both Hillary and Trump gave us reason to laugh at them, didn’t they? This is one of those Trump statements that made me laugh:

[Angry when asked why he interrupted his campaign to go cut ribbons for his new hotel he gave a litany of campaign stops and said:] “For you to ask me that question is actually very insulting, because Hillary Clinton does one stop and then goes home and sleeps, and yet you’ll ask me that question. I think it’s a very rude question, to be honest with you.”

LOL You can also check SNL for more campaign fun.

It All Started with Angry Voters and Political ‘Outsiders’:

Angry Voters and Class Wars

It all started with ‘angry voters’ in the primaries, remember them?  I know, the media doesn’t talk about them anymore. That’s because the angry voters have been properly channeled to the two parties to waste their anger on attacking Hillary and Trump, not on those who they claim have actually made them angry in the first place: the oligarchs and ‘globalists’. But I’m digressing.

Those who the GOP considers the plebe (the middle class, mostly the lower end of it) were justifiably angry at how they have been pushed by the oligarchs, the elites and politicians down with the ‘untouchables’ (the poor), identified by the right wingers as the colored ‘free loaders’ and ‘illegal aliens’ living in poverty. The left-wing (Sanders’ followers and the American Left) took as the object of its rage, not the oligarchs, but Hillary Clinton. See “she’s a liar” shouted at her face:

It should be noted that the oligarchs/globalists were never threatened by the angry voters in the Dem party. As I discussed in this blog, they, represented by Larry Summers, came out against Trump, not against Sanders. Why? Because, while Sanders was busy vilifying Hillary and blaming her for all the problems in the world, Trump was ‘shaming’ the globalists publicly, blaming them for the loss of jobs here. They, the globalists, were the ones who admitted that this election is about class wars, but the people don’t want to hear about that.

So, these angry voters populated both the GOP and the Democratic parties, and threatened a revolution within the parties, not outside. They railed against their respective parties’ “establishment” but marched right into them to turn them into the opposite of what those parties are. Sanders’ supporters wanted to turn the DNC into some form of ‘not picante’ Bolshevist Party and Hillary Clinton into a female Lenin.

The revoltosos at the GOP want…I’m still trying to figure that out. I know they want capitalism and globalism, but not too hot either.

The Outsiders: Trump and Sanders

Donald Trump entered the campaign waving the flag of the billionaire outside of politics (we are still waiting to see his taxes to confirm his status as billionaire), and the MSM did not question his claim of being a political ‘outsider’.

Image result for trump outsider politics

I discussed the issue of billionaires, elite and oligarchs as pseudo outsiders in politics here. Is a myth, folks. Anyway, Trump admitted, during the primaries debates and later, that he paid politicians and later got from them what he needed. His own words. So he admits that he is NOT an outsider in politics, he is a manipulator of politics and politicians for his interest. I know, nothing wrong with that, but the point is made that he and other wealthy businessmen are  NOT outsiders in politics. It does matter, people.

Image result for trump political outsider

He is not “controlled by lobbyists” because he is his own lobbyist. He ‘donates’ to politicians to get his wishes.

Sanders, good ol’ Sanders. Not only was he paraded as an ‘outsider’, his followers made a saint out of him, with trip to the Vatican and all to get sainthood status (another fun moment in the elections).

Image result for saint bernie sanders

The MSM promoted the illusion that, because Sanders was an ‘independent’ and ‘socialist’, he was an outsider in politics, that as such he NEVER, in 30+ years in Congress, participated in the parties ‘establishment’.  Of course, the media has refused, to this day, to vet his votes in Congress. Sanders became a threat to Hillary Clinton only because the MSM gave to him the same thing they gave Trump: free coverage.

On top of that, they preserved the image of Sanders the ‘he never lies, he is so honest’, and Hillary the born-liar. You can’t have a bitch without someone to bitch on, can you? The media gave us Sanders to highlight Hillary’s ‘corruption’. But it was Sanders the one hurling insults, calling Hillary ‘corrupt’ and ‘crooked’, she never insulted him…and the media don’t show us his record nor his emails. Remember: The first instance of campaign hacking was his campaign stealing Clinton’s donor and supporters list.

The Democratic National Committee suspended Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign’s access to the DNC voter database after the party organization said the campaign was able to take advantage of a software error to access Hillary Clinton’s confidential voter information.

Image result for sanders is the only one telling the truth

The Confrontations: Hillary & Trump Feel the Angry Voters’ ‘Burn’

Then there were the protests at Trump’s and Hillary’s rallies. This is where all hell broke loose: the MSM took an uncharacteristic support of leftist ‘rioters’.

As I commented in the post mentioned above, while up to these primaries the media had ignored the OWS and BLM movements, they turned their cameras in FAVOR of those  same people who were disrupting Trump’s and Hillary’s rallies. The media did not accuse the protesters of marching into Trump’s rallies to provoke violence, it accused Trump of inciting violence.

Funny thing is, the American Left DID organize protests to provoke violence.

…include[ing] mobilizing the greatest number possible of radicalizing people of color, youth, Bernie Sanders supporters and others to confront and shut down his campaign events at every opportunity possible. [Quote link in my post .]

And recently, the media and Assange’s Wikileaks want to blame Hillary for it, when it is clear that everybody had dirty hands. The media, above all, for covering the violence and exculpating the protesters as  not inciting violence when they did.

Misogyny Makes History with Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton has the historic distinction of being the first woman running for president of the USA, but, were it  not for Trump, that would have been a negative for her in her campaign. During the primaries she was not allowed to boast about that historical achievement: she was publicly criticized by just about everybody for trying.

[Update: Article re MSM “They’re already trying to erase what they did to Hillary Clinton“]

As the first woman running for office, Hillary Clinton has had the undesired and undeserved distinction  of having been dragged through the mud, humiliated for openly running as a woman, blamed for ALL the evils in the planet (no man, president or not, has achieved this feat), called a bitch in her face, have her life threatened by men (not one woman has gone so far as to wanting to assassinate her), condemned by the MSM, the Left and by Trump and his supporters as the ‘most dishonest person on the planet’…

This is the manifestation of hatred of women, and it is historic. This presidential cycle will go to the history books as one where misogyny became a campaign issue by default.

The MSM refused to highlight the historical feature of her candidacy, and on the day she won her party’s nomination as the first woman nominated for the highest office, the Washington Post published this on its cover:

    The Take: Clinton got what she needed, but her image is underwater

It was a hit piece, promoting the ‘conventional truth’ that Hillary is a born-liar and NO ONE likes her. You know ‘conventional truths’, don’t you? They are accepted without evidence and by the force of repeating them over and over.

It is a fact that having someone of your kind (race, gender, nationality) in high office works as a role model, a boost in the collective ego of that group. No need to elaborate here on the importance of a President Obama in that respect.

But women are not allowed, yet, that benefit. Nonetheless, one thing this presidential campaign has done, by this woman running for office, is cast the light at the intensity and depth of misogyny in our culture.

Even women were afraid to praise Hillary in her effort, afraid to put women’s issues in the forefront. It took the king of the misogynist, pussy-grabber Trump, to break the damn dam of misogyny.

Now, as I write this post, it is clear that women, the majority of voters in the land, are inclined to vote for Hillary PRECISELY because of all the misogyny that Trump illuminated. These women saw how many men, from right to left, up and down the social scale, mansplained Trump to them.

That’s why Hillary Clinton’s candidacy is so important. It open the national conversation on women’s issues. No president has cared for it, because they all were men.

Like the saying goes, ‘it ain’t over until is over’. We still have a couple of weeks before we vote, anything is possible, horrible surprises can happen. There are historical evidence to that, like when no one believed that Hitler could win the German elections.

But all in all, this has been the most horrific and positive election in a long time. The last bastion of oppression, after class, race and nationality, i.e., of women, is open for a cleaning. People are angry about the economy and globalism and the elite is listening, for good and for bad.

The MSM has done a superb job at being dishonest, attacking BOTH Trump and Hillary, doing its job for the globalists who don’t want Trump and are not sure about Hillary.

Turmoil will be in the future, but I’m looking forward to the administration of the first woman President  of the USA.

I have discussed most of these issues in this blog. I know I have an unconventional take on things, I’ve been told so. I invite you to stroll around the posts’ titles and take a look. My ESL shows, but you understand what I’m saying. May not agree, but understand the message.

Thanks for reading.

Fearing Trump: For The Globalists, Coup Is In The Air

It’s been 15 years since the horror that was 9/11. For all of those 15 years our nation’s political leaders (in both parties), both presidents since then, and the oligarchs, they all have been at war with other nations…and with their own citizens.

For how much longer do you think our oligarchy overlords can keep us supporting their globalist misadventures and their for-the-Homeland Security lies?

There is an answer to that question, and it relates  to the political crisis that this presidential election cycle represents. I propose to you that the oligarchs know that the jig is up and that they are,  in the words of Brazil’s  Vice President in charge of the soft  coup against Dilma Rousseff,  ready to “pacify the nation“.

The Crisis: The Oligarchs Are Feeling Restless

Listen, you know the answer to that as well as I do, and I don’t think we’re going to see a President Trump. I’m seeing [disturbing] things today that I never expected to see from either party . And I think when you have the American people as angry as they are, this makes them ripe for populism, and I think what we’re seeing is rooted in that populism. I’m not going to make a prediction on who our president’s going to be. But I will stick my neck way out and say, I don’t think it’s going to be Donald Trump.Globalist Han Paulson

Elites can continue pursuing and defending [global] integration, hoping to win sufficient popular support — but, on the evidence of the US presidential campaign and the Brexit debate, this strategy may have run its course.  Larry Summers

I have had a strong point of view on each of the last ten presidential elections, but never before had I feared that what I regarded as the wrong outcome would in the long sweep of history risk grave damage to the American project. [Idem]

What was in the beginning an imponderable is now taken for granted: support for Trump comes from the angry voters who can’t tolerate the success of globalism any more. It fits perfectly on one of Trump’s many funny promises: voters are tired of too much success,  they are asking ‘please, don’t succeed any more‘.

Our oligarchs aren’t laughing. The American project, our democratic system, is at risk if we don’t stop being angry and threatening to vote for the ‘wrong’ candidates.

NOTE: Nothing on this post should be construed as an endorsement of Donald Trump. I don’t support him in any way, shape or form.

The candidates:

First thing to note  is that these primaries are not ”usual’ or ‘typical’ by any means.  They have been ground shaking: party shaking, and ideology shaking too. Not since JFK’s administration have we seen anything like this.

It would be a political mistake of our citizens to take these elections as one about  the candidates’ personality problems. But that’s precisely the theme that the MSM is giving them; it has all been about Trump, the carnival character, and Hillary as the evil woman hated by every body. By the time the citizens wake up and see the truth, it will be too late for them to correct their mistake, just as they woke up too late  to the con game that was the invasion of Iraq. Now we are all stuck with the consequences of not being alert.

The second  noticeable phenomenon  is the MSM  repeating 24/7 since the beginning of the primaries, on TV, paper and online, the subtext that none of the candidates is worthy of your vote. Both Trump and Hillary have been bashed by them (whether you think they deserve it or not is immaterial to the media) as wholly dishonest,  liars and highly contemptuous lacking in human qualities. Seldom is there a reference to the candidates ideological positions; all attacks  aim at ‘character assassination”.

It is clear that the MSM doesn’t want you to consider either of the candidates as alternatives. If Trump is the racist narcissist liar whose election portent the fall of this nation, why are they attacking the other candidate whom everybody agrees is presenting a serious and well thought out platform? Please, don’t fall for a cynical or knee jerk answer, this question should matter to you.

If not Trump and not Clinton, then who? Sanders? Seriously. Have you stopped to consider that question? The WaPo and The NY Times endorsed Hillary, but their attacks on her have been relentless and even cruel sometimes. They even suggest that Sanders is the ‘honest’ one and she is a career liar.  I don’t see the ‘benefit’ of their endorsement, it certainly has not given her any positive coverage.

What if the problem with Hillary Clinton’s campaign is Hillary Clinton? Sometimes the problem is you.” WaPo

The Take: Clinton got what she needed, but her image is underwater. WaPo [This the day after she won big in NY. ]

You don’t find any articles from them asking you to vote for her to prevent Trump from winning.

So, for whom the MSM wants you to vote? Or are they insinuating that the decision have been made for you already? Or are they getting you used to the fact that the nation is in such turmoil and none of the candidates are capable to handle the crisis, that the decision will have to be made for you by the powers that be?  This ‘none of them’ campaign is fertile ground to plant anything and anyone in place of  “them“. And you will consent to it and love it too.

At War With The People: Coup Is In The Air

It is the people who matters. And the oligarchs have been paying attention to you because you are threatening their order. Voting is the crown jewel of the oligarchs’ democracy, and now you want to subvert it by voting for people they don’t approve of. If you elect Trump, you will be punished.

The United States has always been governed by the authority of ideas, rather than the idea of authority. Nothing is more important than to be clear to all Americans that the tradition of vigorous political debate and compromise will continue. The sooner Donald Trump is relegated to the margins of our national life, the better off we and the world will be. [Idem]

That’s right, there’s them, the oligarchs, who decide when we will be ruled by “the idea of authority”, i.e., dictatorship, and us, who have to debate and compromise with them. And there will be no “compromise and debate” until ‘us’ relegate Trump to the status of social outcast – “to the margins of our national life”. Another coup to Americans is being considered, that’s the meaning of that paragraph.

Talking about angry people, Summers sounded pretty angry there, didn’t he?

We have seen not so subtle threats before, most recently in 2009 when Bush told Congress that if they don’t sign the bail out of the greedy globalists they could see martial law signed by him. The oligarchs are threatening everybody, not just us. They are threatening harm to the Brits if they vote Brexit. And as if to send you a message that they are serious about how to stop, yes Trump, but ultimately your anger, the HuffPo published this article: At Secretive Meeting, Tech CEOs And Top Republicans Commiserate, Plot To Stop Trump

The HuffPo is owned by Verizon, so I take it that the message in that article was the imminency of the  perceived threat, not any details or facts (there were none) about what was discussed in that “meeting to plot” against Trump. But like that letter to Trump by Summers, it shows that the oligarchs are feeling restless.

The Solutions:

The depth of the crisis is such that it has the  oligarchs divided on how to fix it;  that’s a fact. You see it in how different big wigs support or don’t support efforts to derail Trump. There is also a third-party wish been discussed as we speak, but it will solve nothing because the problem is not Trump or the party. Whatever they do, voters anger will remain the same, and that’s what matter.

They see angry voters united, that’s a problem for them because, to manage the crisis you must have the people willing to negotiate, and people are beyond that level at this moment, there in Summers threat about “the idea of authority”.

So, democracy will have to be tinkered with, they may have to suspend it for a short period, if you don’t obey the globalists. And just to prove to you they mean business, take a second long look at Sanders’ followers ‘occupation’ of Trump’s rallies, and now attacking Hillary on her activities.

You saw there how easily  manipulated into creating chaos certain segments of the populace are. That was no happenstance, those provocations were planned, organized and carried out to perfection: it tested the availability  of  material to create social ‘crisis’ a la Latin America. That spectacle was for you, to show you that things  can get as intense as in third world countries if you elect Trump.

You can see in the article I linked for you above, the concrete plans globalist Trilateralist Summers have to control the people’s anger.

But this is the kicker: malleable Trump can be made the dictator the oligarchs need. It’s still too early to decide whether Trump will be obliterated or bend to the shape the oligarchs want. After all, he is a racist elitist: trust him at your own risk, like you trusted the cons who gave you Iraq and the NSA and Homeland Security…

Note#3: The Two-Party System Is Whipping Boy For The Oligarchs

When people say that they are angry at the party establishment for failing to protect them and not delivering on the campaign promises, what they are saying is that they, the people, got screwed by the party.

You can frame the elections from the Republican point of view as ‘they didn’t stand up to Obama’, but that’s sophistry. For the people, the middle and the blue-collar working class, the issue is that they are finding themselves with the poor applying for food stamps. The two-party system is working perfectly for the elite, the big corporations that outsource jobs...

The anger, in my view, has been misplaced. Yes, the politicians ought to be held accountable for selling their constituents cheap . But it is the elite the one doing the buying, and yet, no one holds them accountable. They are the ones destroying this nation’s and the world’s economy. The problems of the planet, the environment, poverty, all that revolution you see around the globe…the elite owns all that.

We don’t see the elite, we just ‘feel’ the results of their actions in our lives. The two parties are between us and them. They, the elite, never gets to feel the people’s anger face to face.

That’s the function of the duopoly in this millennium: to be the whipping boy for the elite. The party leaders duty is to channel and keep that anger within the party system so that it doesn’t spills to threaten the elite in the flesh.

We have to find a more direct path to get to the elite and hold them accountable for the misery they are sowing on this planet.

The core of the revolt against globalintegration, though, is not ignorance. It is a sense, not wholly unwarranted, that it is a project carried out by elites for elites with little consideration for the interests of ordinary people — who see the globalisation agenda as being set by big companies playing off one country against another.

Larry Summers

Note#2: It’s The Globalists, Silly.

It is pretty accurate, IMHO, to say that the planet is in a state of chaos, both environmentally and socially. See France’s Nuit Debout youth’s revolution, the Middle East, Latin America…to the USA. The malaise is global, and so is its origin: globalism.

It’s not just me saying it. As I have discussed on this blog, it is the globalists themselves who have diagnosed the problem. Our current presidential elections crisis (both parties are being shaken by popular anger), according to globalist Larry Sanders, is evidence that the success of globalism has peaked, and is high noon time for the elite to step back and re-think how to cope with the consequences of its success if they want to have more of it:

This [globalization] has proved more successful than could reasonably have been hoped.

…Elites can continue pursuing and defending [global] integration, hoping to win sufficient popular support — but, on the evidence of the US presidential campaign and the Brexit debate, this strategy may have run its course.

…And they see the disintegration that accompanies global integration, as communities suffer when big employers lose to foreign competitors.

…The core of the revolt against globalintegration, though, is not ignorance. It is a sense, not wholly unwarranted, that it is a project carried out by elites for elites with little consideration for the interests of ordinary people — who see the globalisation agenda as being set by big companies playing off one country against another.

…The emphasis can shift from promoting integration to managing its consequences.

This is likely to result in a hiatus in new global integration

…efforts to preserve what is in place while relying on technology and growth in the developing world to drive further integration.

The globalists have their think-tanks to give them the information/data needed to assess, in the words of former mayor of NY Ed Koch, “how am I doing?”. They have been talking, among themselves only, about the impact of globalism on human beings, culture and society at larger since at least 1970 when they were beginning to carry out their global take-over of our lives. We, however, base our political decisions on the facts given to us by FoxNews, CNN…We certainly don’t have time for heavy thinking after a hard work day. If we let them, they will ‘fix’ the problem for us.

We need to get off the two-party system, educate ourselves about the nature of globalism and how it is changing  our society, personalities and even how we perceive reality.

We need an organization where fighting globalism is the first point in the platform, then the environment, animal rights, children and women’s rights, the right to work, health services…all of them on one platform.

Sit there peacefully if you think you can get that from the duopoly, ’cause you’re gonna get tired of waiting on your feet for it to deliver. They will give you what they want and you will have to love it.

Until then, Hillary is our only option in these elections.
