Mind-blowing simply can not describe the realization that this country’s populace is willing to accept Hillary Clinton as a bona fide Presidential candidate. The fact that anyone is willing to support her candidacy is beyond imaginable. Notwithstanding her known illegal activities in her career as an attorney while her husband was Governor of Arkansas and then when he was running for President; notwithstanding all the scandals to which she was connected while her husband was in the Oval office; the fact that Hillary is now the Democratic front-runner in the Presidential race is the direct manifestation of just how far into the abyss toward collapse that the United States has fallen.
Based on all the evidence, there is no question that Hillary has been completely “captured” by Wall Street’s siren call of riches. Both she and her husband have been paid millions by the Too Big To Fail banks for speech-making appearances. Hillary’s public financial disclosures show she earned $2,935,000 from 12 speeches to Wall Street banks alone from 2013 – 2015; Deutsche Bank paid her $485,000, Goldman Sachs an astonishing $675,000 for a single speech. Wall Street banks are her leading campaign contributors.
What could either Bill or Hillary possibly teach these bankers other than how to break the law and get away with it? This speaks nothing to the fact that Hillary has been exposed for selling National policy initiatives to the highest bidder abroad per her emails which were hacked and exposed. The entire spectacle of Hillary’s campaign is a nightmare beyond imigination turned into reality.
On the other side of the “aisle” is Donald Trump, who’s improbable run for the Presidency has turned into a cult of personality parade that gains more popular support by the day. And for good reason. Trump’s support base is comprised of everyone in the U.S. who is fed up with the openly flaunted corruption and fraud conducted daily by the DC and Wall Street elite. His message and the manner in which it is delivered appeals to a growing majority of Americans who, up until now, have felt powerless to do anything about the criminals who have overtaken our system.
Make no mistake, I’m not in support of Trump as President anymore than I am of Clinton. I’m just pointing out that Trump represents a voice in this country that has been snuffed out by a political process which has been overrun by the big money that has completely enslaved DC in its entirety.
The DC and Wall Street establishment are terrified by Trump. He can self-fund his campaign and therefore is not dependent on the flood of money thrown at politicians by Wall Street, Big Pharma, Big Oil, Big Defense, Unions, Soros, Buffet and Walmart. Perhaps emblematic of this is Fox News, which is Rupert Murdoch’s personal neocon propaganda generator. Fox News has thrown overt support behind every pathetic Republican contender except Trump. I was quite entertained watching the network do it’s best to revive Jeb Bush from a political coma. The network will probably still promote his candidacy even though it’s now buried along side Jimmy Hoffa.
After Super Tuesday establishes Trump as the outright leading candidate from either Party to be the next President, I expect that the inside elite will go to work implementing some kind of plan to sabotage Trump. The Washington Post featured an article about 10 days ago which explained that the Republican “elite” are terrified of Trump: GOP elites just became even more nervous about a Trump nomination – LINK.
At this point in time if the Presidential election held today, I would bet big that Trump would be elected. Because of this, the establishment DC and corporate/banking insiders are going to do what it takes to defy the voice of the public and do everything within their means to dispose of Trump. It’s going to get weird, no doubt.
Make no mistake, democracy is dead in the United States. Any last remnants were shattered with the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. If you don’t know about this case and its significance, your “right” to vote should be revoked.
Beyond the fact that big money is completely in control of the Government, the election process in this country has been reduced to nothing more than the political reality tv version of The Jerry Springer show. Casting a vote is nothing more than a time-wasting affirmation of one’s support for a system that has failed. I’m sorry, Virginia, there is no Santa Claus and your vote does not matter.
