Donald Trump should be commended for bringing some much needed clarity to America’s political charade. By shoving his thumb in the eye of the GOP on two key issues that have nothing to do with racism or narcissism, Donald Trump has exposed the one party that pretends its two wings are not run by the same operating system.
The corporate war party wants to enshrine corporate supremacy with trade deals while ensuring the lucrative war racket expands into new markets, like the South China sea. The media fervor over Trump’s latest self-inflicted scandal is just window dressing. It will be fascinating to see the full array of coercive tactics now being deployed by the corporate war party against Trump.
Trump has become so exceedingly self-destructive, conspiracy theories I was floating to friends months ago are getting new traction, thanks to a tweet by Jeb Bush that states:
Maybe Donald negotiated a deal with his buddy @HillaryClinton. Continuing this path will put her in the White House.
Here’s more from the link:
There are so many Hillary Clinton conspiracy theories circulating, there isn’t room enough for all of them in one article. The earliest conspiracy theory to surface regarding the 2016 election, is that Donald Trump isn’t a genuine candidate, but a stooge to get Hillary elected also referred to as a Clinton plant. At first the idea seems absurd, but once you think about the statements Trump has made and the way he hasn’t attacked Hillary when it would be in his best interest to do so, you must wonder why. Why does Donald Trump say the things he says and do the things he does? The theory isn’t that far off and it’s not just people wearing aluminum foil hats hiding in their soundproof basements thinking about it.
I love how media sources that wouldn’t hesitate to use the pejorative conspiracy smear when it suits their corporate overlords agenda dance around their conspiratorial speculation when it suits their corporate overlords agenda.
Amidst this heady stew of paranoia, more and more Republicans are proving the sky is red and water isn’t wet by supporting the once vilified demon spawn in a pantsuit:
When lifelong Republican and former Ronald Reagan aide Doug Elmets publicly declared his support for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, backlash was swift. A longtime mentor called him up to ask: “‘Have you lost your goddamn mind?’” Elmets recalled. There have damaged friendships, even death threats. But there has been an outpouring of enthusiasm as well. “I’ve heard from a lot of Republicans who appreciate that I’m speaking out,” Elmets said. “Many people feel the way I do, that Donald Trump is unhinged and totally unfit to be president.”
A small, but growing, number of Republicans are turning their back on the party’s presidential nominee and rallying around Clinton as the days tick down to the general election. Earlier this week, Representative Richard Hanna of New York broke with his party to become the first sitting Republican member of Congress to announce that he will vote for Clinton over Trump. Republican fundraiser Meg Whitman came forward to say that she too will support Clinton—personally and monetarily—in order to defeat Trump.
On this long drive to Crazytown, I can’t help but reflect on the madness of it all. The most irritating aspect of the Trump phenomenon is the part where he makes sense, but because of the sewage that pours forth from his bloviating meat face, anything sensible is drowned by the obscene and the absurd.
For those paying attention to what gets put forth under the misnomer “free trade”, Trump’s opposition to deals like the TPP is not just sensible, but essential. Anyone who for a second believes Hillary won’t immediately triangulate in support of this top priority on the global hegemony wish list is kidding themselves.
And for those paying attention to foreign policy, questioning NATO is similarly essential, if avoiding WWIII is something that matters to you.
After that war, says Einstein, we’ll be hitting each other with sticks. Unstated is any future world where we evolve beyond the hitting stage of our collective toddlerdum.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, for who?) anything sensible Trump may represent is buried in the escalating antics of someone who either doesn’t really want to be president (for whatever reason), or who maybe is pathologically narcissistic and just can’t help himself. I hate to see the mental health argument developing, but it’s better than the military coup being floated.
However the political Frankenstein that is Trump in America in 2016 plays out, I think we are witnessing a discernible shift of the political weight that in all honesty should sink the Democratic party (but probably won’t).
With Hillary’s VP pick, and the affable climate amongst war-crazed Neocons for another round of Clinton, there is nothing left but fear of Trump to get out the vote for more war and corporate control over our lives.
And make no mistake, that is what a vote for Hillary is.
While the entire US media goes apoplectic over the latest Trump story, there is a quietly growing body count conveniently benefiting Hillary. The latest corpse is the lead attorney in the DNC fraud case, Shawn Lucas, who was allegedly found dead on his bathroom floor. That makes five conveniently dead people who won’t be bothering the Clinton campaign any time soon:
1) Shawn Lucas, Sanders supporter who served papers to DNC on the Fraud Case (DOD August 2, 2016)
2) Victor Thorn, Clinton author (and Holocaust denier, probably the least credible on this list) shot himself in an apparent suicide. Conspiracy theorists at Mystery Writers of America said some guys will do anything to sell books. (DOD August, 2016)
3) Seth Conrad Rich, Democratic staffer, aged 27, apparently on his way to speak to the FBI about a case possibly involving the Clintons. The D.C. murder was not a robbery. (DOD July 8, 2016)
4) John Ashe, UN official who allegedly crushed his own throat while lifting weights, because he watched too many James Bond films and wanted to try the move where the bad guy tries to…oh, never mind. “He was scheduled to testify against the Clintons and the Democrat Party.” (DOD June 22, 2016)
5) Mike Flynn, the Big Government Editor for Breitbart News. Mike Flynn’s final article was published the day he died, “Clinton Cash: Bill, Hillary Created Their Own Chinese Foundation in 2014.” (DOD June 23, 2016)
I think all this shows is how much Hillary is ready to be president. She has the bloodlust for the job, a total lack of a moral compass, a pathological ability to lie, and the growing acknowledgment by Republicans that war and corporate fealty is coded in her DNA.
With the terrifying boogeyman Donald Trump doing everything he can to implode the GOP while impotent powerbrokers like Jeb Bush tweet conspiracy theories, Hillary is closer than ever to ascending to her throne.
