Sweet Revenge: Hillary and the Donald Dismantling the Juggernaut

Oh how sweet it is.  The sweet, sweet taste of revenge is so, so good.  The ticking time bomb created by the confluence of the politicians, Supreme Court, media monopoly and banking cartels is ready to blow.  Hillary and the Donald have beat them at their own game and the juggernaut is dismantling.

The howling and guttural growling coming from the beast as it is being exorcised from the body politic is reaching ear shattering decibels.  The carefully cultivated electoral process where the candidates are selected before the first ballot is cast is over.  The New World Order is over, done, kaput. 

I wrote in my blog post in August last year of how the Democrat establishment’s super delegates had overruled the voters in the 2008 primary and chose Barack Obama as the Democrats’ candidate for President.  

Once installed in office, Obama and his self-proclaimed Zionist Veep Biden put the Project for a New American Century’s New World Order on steroids.  For the next eight years the governments in Ukraine, Greece, Burkina Faso, Egypt and on and on were overthrown, bankrupted and natural resources sold off.

Now the neocons are panic stricken begging the voters to flock to Marco Rubio, begging Democrats to skip the Democratic primary and vote for Marco Rubio in the Republican primary.  The stench of desperation is emanating from every source imaginable.  From Peter Beinart at The Atlantic:


Why Liberals Should Vote for Marco Rubio

Democrats must do everything they can to prevent Donald Trump’s nomination—like supporting the one man with a chance to beat him..

Ha, ha.  Fat chance Peter, you have no idea how many Democrats support Trump, but go on, make your case.  This should be good:

Marco Rubio would be a terrible president. His tax proposals make George W. Bush look fiscally prudent. He acts as if America can use sanctions, war, or the threat of war to bludgeon its adversaries into submission despite the devastating failure of that approach since 9/11. He has been dishonest and gutless on immigration. He has flirted with climate-change denial even though his hometown now regularly floods.

Still, if I lived in any of the nine Super Tuesday states that allow non-Republicans to vote in their GOP presidential primary, I would cross over—forfeiting my chance to cast a ballot for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders—and vote for Rubio….

Just imagine what might happen if were Trump nominated or, God forbid, elected. In myriad ways, America would become an uglier, scarier place. 

If Rubio won, by contrast, the Republican Party might be stabilized. The terms of debate between the two parties would remain roughly the same. Given how radical even “establishment” Republicans like Rubio actually are, that’s a depressing prospect. 

Nominating Trump would upend all that. American politics would fundamentally change. But as conservatives have often reminded liberals, change does not equal progress. Sometimes even a morally corrupt status quo is better than what follows. A Trump nomination would represent a leap into a terrifying political unknown. 

Gee, that’s so persuasive all that sweet talk about Marco Rubio.  What a dumb ass.  So whom else wants to sweet talk to voters to back Rubio even if he is a tool for Vulture Capitalist Paul Singer?  Why it’s none other than Vulture Capitalist Larry Summers.  From The Chicago Tribune:


Commentary: Donald Trump is a threat to American democracy

The possible election of Donald Trump as president is the greatest present threat to the prosperity and security of the United States. I have had a strong point of view on each of the last 10 presidential elections, but never before have I feared that what I regarded as the wrong outcome would in the long sweep of history risk grave damage to the American project.

Now that’s rich, the architect of the greatest global economic disaster in the history of the world is afraid that President Trump is a threat to the prosperity and security that he and his Zionist buddy Joe Biden helped create.  Larry you’re an even bigger dumb ass than Peter Beinart. 

So let’s take a little jaunt over to the Libertarian side and see it they can convince us to dump Trump for the bankers’ choice Marco Rubio.  So what’s Ilia Somin at the Volokh Conspiracy have to say?


Time to unite against Trump

Donald Trump’s victories in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and now Nevada should be a wakeup call to all who oppose him. The time has come for us to unite – and to prioritize Trump’s defeat over other electoral considerations.

If you are a conservative or libertarian who cares about upholding the Constitution and limiting the power of government, your main goal in this GOP nomination campaign must be to stop Trump. 

I am not going to go over all the reasons why Trump would be a horrible nominee in detail. That has been done already by others, such as Peter Wehner, and the participants in the National Review symposium on Trump…

At least in the short term, we cannot eliminate the ignorance and xenophobic bigotry that drives much of Trump’s support. But we can work to ensure that all those who oppose Trump within the GOP unite under the same flag…

Who should be the one? It’s pretty obvious that Ben Carson’s campaign is hopeless, at this point. John Kasich is an admirable candidate in a number of ways. But it’s also clear that he has very little if any chance of winning….

Ted Cruz has better odds than Kasich, and even managed to beat Trump in Iowa. I am far from being a big Cruz fan myself. Still, I can understand why many conservatives – and even a few of my libertarian friends – support him. But, whether you like him or not, he has only a small chance of success….

That leaves Marco Rubio as the best choice. Rubio is acceptable to a wide range of conservative and moderate Republicans, and to both the Tea Party wing and the establishment…

There is a plausible argument that Cruz would have a better chance in a one on one race with Trump than Rubio would.

Oh Ilya, you know I love you but no matter how many times you and your pals at VC close your eyes and click your heels together repeating “Cruz is natural born American” he is not.  An American woman’s uterus is not an American territory. 

The logic that anyone born anywhere in the world, as long as your mother was an American you automatically are a natural born citizen of the USA is bogus. 

David Drucker from the Washington Examiner was on C-Span this morning making the same bullshit case that Ted Cruz is a natural born citizen.  Some on the right are comparing Donald Trump to Hitler, but truth be told it is Ted Cruz is more comparable to Hitler.  From Joseph Farah at WND:



Exclusive: Joseph Farah shows how Germans of 1932 also dumbed down their constitution

The American political and media elite have determined, for whatever reason, that the Constitution’s eligibility requirements for the presidency are not important….

It’s not unprecedented that failing republics dumb down eligibility requirements for the presidency. It’s not unprecedented that failing republics ignore or obscure eligibility requirements for the presidency. It’s not unprecedented that failing republics make tragic mistakes in permitting non-qualified candidates to serve in the presidency.

It happened in 1932 in Germany with a candidate named Adolf Hitler.

In fact, this tragedy, which resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of innocents and the utter destruction of the German republic, is documented in the biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas.

Of course when Mr. Farah wrote that piece in 2011 he was referring to Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President.  Funny that many on the right that felt that way about the constitutional requirement of being a “natural born citizen” now have amnesia. 

The neoliberals and neoconservatives fear Trump the most, especially Rupert Murdoch and his media empire.  From Newsmax:


Trump: I'll 'Open Up' Libel Laws if Elected

Republican U.S. presidential front-runner Donald Trump said on Friday that if elected he would "open up" libel laws to make suing the media easier.

Speaking at a rally in Fort Worth, Texas, Trump said the change was necessary to combat what he described as the "dishonesty" of major American newspapers.

Trump routinely criticizes the press during campaign appearances, complaining about coverage he says is unfair and at times singling out people or news outlets for special insults. He often invites audiences at his rallies to boo the journalists gathered in a special fenced-off part of the room. At a Dec. 23 appearance in Grand Rapids, Michigan, he joked about killing journalists as the crowd thundered applause.

"One of the things I'm going to do if I win," he said on Friday, "I'm going to open up our libel law so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money."

If you really think about it, what Trump is saying is that he will get rid of Citizens United, the worst Supreme Court decision in our nation’s history.  From Reclaim Democracy:


What is Citizens United? | An Introduction

…Citizens United, the PAC, was founded in 1988 by Floyd Brown, a longtime Washington political consultant, with major funding from the Koch brothers (industrialists who own “the second largest privately owned company in the United States”).

It gained fame in 2009 for suing the Federal Election Commission, leading to a controversial Supreme Court case (now also commonly known as Citizens United) eliminating some restrictions on how corporations can spend money in elections…

In the 2008 election season, Citizens United the PAC sought to broadcast TV ads for a video-on-demand film criticizing presidential candidate Hilary Rodham Clinton, but doing so would violate the 2002 Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (known also as the McCain–Feingold Act), which barred corporations and unions from paying for media that mentioned any candidate in periods immediately preceding elections…

In a 5-4 ruling, the Justices declared unconstitutional the government restriction on “independent” political spending by corporations and unions, and determined the anti-Clinton broadcast should have been allowed. The decision overturned century-old precedent allowing the government to regulate such spending….

One of the main instruments of this influence is the legal concept of “corporate personhood,” wherein corporations receive the same Constitutional protections as individuals. Corporations use these protections to claim the “right” to lie to the public, for example, or to influence elections in various ways.

Corporations have lobbied for and received these protections for decades, despite our country’s founders intending no such thing. The Citizens United decision is just the latest in a long line of decisions granting Constitutional rights to corporations.

Yes, Citizens United was launched to allow personal attacks and lies against Hillary Clinton during a campaign.  Joe Biden and his Republican wing of the Democratic Party had big plans for this campaign season. 

The plan was to continually leak lies to a compliant press about Hillary to weaken her and then have Biden and the super delegates step in and declare her unelectable. Everything was moving right along according to plan until Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy and wham. 

There’s a real dilemma here, if they knock Hillary out of the competition that leaves Trump. If they knock Trump out that leaves Hillary.  What to do, oh what to do.

The Oh how sweet it is.  The sweet, sweet taste of revenge is so, so good.  The ticking time bomb created by the confluence of the politicians, Supreme Court, media monopoly and banking cartels is ready to blow.  Hillary and the Donald have beat them at their own game and the juggernaut is dismantling.

Sweet revenge, sweet revenge will prevail without fail.
