Toilet Bowl Politics
I never thought I’d see the day the decadence, criminality of the American political system and the depravity of US culture would be exposed in real time for the world to see. Over the course of this election cycle we have seen the 1% manipulate the “news” to protect an enormously disliked career political opportunist with an entitlement mentality because she sold her soul (if she had one) to the 1% crowd who repaid her by stealing the nomination from Bernie Sanders (as documented in the DNC leaks) to force her down our throats as the next president of the USA.
On the other hand we have Donald Trump a narcissist egomaniac, a “TV reality show” personality who openly flaunts his “success” by telling the world how he navigated a rigged system to make billions now proclaiming he and he alone can “save” this country from the very people who rig the system. Trump accomplished the unthinkable, he defeated a posse of contenders to win the Republican presidential nomination. Trump is a political outsider, a novice to electoral politics but he has huge name recognition, he’s rich, knows the game, has played it well and used the system to his benefit. Now he says he wants to save the country and make it great again.
Trump has a huge following and it appears nothing the 1%’s sock puppets at the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC et al throw at Trump seems to work. Trump fights back and his support grows with each new attack by the mainstream media. Trump’s style is to hit back harder when he is hit. Unfortunately he gets so caught up in hitting back, he loses focus on the key issues because he is a shallow, self-centered narcissist. In his mind it is always about him. Trump fought back during the last two televised debate and went on the personal attack. The campaign has gone into the toilet but what did you expect given the character (or lack thereof) of the two prime contenders for the presidency.
My mantra “think for yourself, make up your own mind” has been reaffirmed and reinforced throughout this whole election process. You cannot rely on the corporate media for truth or the issues!
Exposing a male politicians sexual proclivities is a tried and true formula to ruin him. This is what the Clinton campaign and the media are doing to Trump. It worked on John Edwards, Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner, Herman Cain to name a few and it almost worked against Bill Clinton in 1996. The corporate mind control apparatus thought they could use the same card to discredit Donald Trump and double down by disingenuously linking him to Russian president Vladimir Putin in order to suppress, distract and obfuscate the detrimental Wikileaks E-mails documenting the thorough and unrepentant corruption of Hillary Clinton; from the DNC plot to undermine Bernie Sanders, to the nexus between the Clinton Foundation, The Clinton Global Initiative, the insecure server she used during her time as Secretary of State for pay to play to the just released E-mails about her speeches to top Wall Street banksters.
Trump took a major hit when the media coverage took up all the space and air time focusing on his alleged misogyny and sexual abuse which allowed the media to ignore the mounting revelations about Clinton’s corruption.
I predict it will get worse as the election gets closer. The 1% are petrified an outsider like Trump will upset their apple cart. They planned for this race to be between two of their own, possibility Jeb Bush and Clinton or Marc Rubio, Ted Cruz and Clinton with Clinton winning. The system is rigged to the hilt, but Bernie Sanders and Trump throw monkey wrenches in their plans. Now the 1% crowd shot callers must increase the stakes to make sure their Hillary girl wins. Look for the campaign to go deeper into the cesspool, becoming even more putrid while the real issues impacting us be ignored. Both sides will insult our intelligence; alas no matter who wins this name calling, mud slinging contest the American people will be worse off.
