Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders
Despite all the turmoil and controversy, the 2015 – 2016 political Primary Season has exposed a lot of previously hidden things about the American political process, that maybe we weren’t supposed to know.
For THAT alone, BOTH Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have done the nation a great favor. How we deal with that favor will say a LOT about us and about America as a nation, as it now exists.
If anything, the “establishment” attacks, especially on Donald Trump have proven that BOTH political Parties exist as “professional managers” for a global conglomerate of multi-national Corporations and International bankers.
As far back as 1933, FDR, in a letter to Colonel Edward House, wrote, “The real truth is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers (foreign banks) has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.”
So, this is nothing new, but it has become much more clear to far more Americans with this Primary Season.
The 2015 – 016 Primary Season has also been a pretty good gauge of voter anger. Trump, more than anything else, has represented a thumb in the eye of the GOPe, a political establishment that has proven itself to be far more nefarious than the incompetents in the Democratic Party.
Bernie Sanders has been much the same to a rigged (via “Super Delegates”) Democratic Party.
It has also exposed many in the national media, especially those who make their livings with Commentary pieces that are SUPPOSED TO sway public opinion (such as George Will, Chris Matthews, Charles Krauthammer, etc.) – as ineffectual dolts.
The Media, while laughing, early on, at “the GOP’s dilemma,” the overwhelmingly Leftist American media, seamlessly moved into attack mode when called upon, as if on cue.
How corrupt is America’s national media?
Consider that Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communication for U.S. President Barack Obama and one of the architects of the fatally flawed Iran Deal, as well as the now infamous “Benghazi Talking Points,” and once an aide to New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is the brother of David Rhoades, the current president of CBS News.
Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, a special advisor to Barack Obama is the sister of the president of ABC News, Ben Sherwood.
Tom Nides, a under Barack Obama is husband to Virginia Moseley is a CNN and Washington Bureau Chief
Such relations show why our Corporately owned news outlets not only favor Leftist Dems, they have familial bonds that guide media policy to synch with the political policies such pseudo-elites favor.
Seriously, what could’ve been funnier than the sitting President Barry Soetoro (that’s the name he used as an “exchange student” at Occidental College and when applying for the Illinois Bar) assailing Donald Trump’s “Lack of foreign policy credentials,” when President Obama had NONE of his own before taking office and has, to this day, kept his College grades hidden...enough said, there’s ONLY one reason anyone would do that.
We know that G W Bush was a “Gentleman’s C,” that Al Gore failed out of Divinity School (NOT Law or Med School, but F*#king Divinity School), so what could be more distressing than that?
The fact is that Corporatism works, whereas Socialism’s “Command (government-run) Economy” CAN’T. While Corporatism isn’t as dynamic and prosperous as the free market, it is also less unstable.
BUT one of the key aspects of Corporatism (the partnership between business and government) is that business MUST ALWAYS be the Senior Partner.
Consider the following names; Mark Cuban, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Jack Welch, Steve Jobs and Joe Biden, Al Gore, John Boehner, George W. Bush, Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell.
The difference is NOT merely about 40 IQ points in favor of the group in business, but there’s a certain acumen that the former group seems to possess that the latter one does not.
I couldn’t imagine the political group successfully running a lemonade stand.
While the first group would be solely focused on making a profit, sacrificing everything else for that, the political group would almost certainly put comfort...their comfort (“I’d rather locate our stand near that lake 3 miles off the highway, for the better views”) ahead of virtually everything else. I’d doubt they’d even take all the related costs into account. “The lemonade mix costs us 20 cents a pack and each pack makes 8 eight-ounce glasses, so we can sell our lemonade at 5 cents per glass.”
The business group would no doubt locate their stand on a major exit from the highway, and take into account things like the cost of bottled water, the ice used, the cost of the cups, etc.
The political group would be filing for a bailout before the end of the first day!
Moreover, elections aren’t won with votes, they’re won with MONEY. Money buys image and IMAGE generates votes!
No money source, no vote source.
Those who supply the money to the system, OWN that system and thereby own those who work within that system. Politicians are merely MANAGERS for their moneyed, Corporate masters.
The problem we face today is that these global Corporate heads see the existing cultures, heritages and races as superfluous and “in the way.” They are “in the way” of them having a smooth, homogeneous global consumer class.
That’s a problem because it runs in conflict with the nature of us...humans.
The question now is, “Can we UNRIG an already rigged system, one that’s been rigged for a very, VERY (according to FDR) long time?”
The 2015 - 2016 Primary Season has given a clearer picture of our ugly and corrupt political system and what's behind it. Now we've all got to figure out what can be done about that.
