This Election Is The Biggest Threat To The US Aristocracy (Biggest Opportunity For Voters) Since At Least 1932

Authored by Eric Zuesse,
The historical significance of the 2016 U. S. Presidential contest isn’t yet generally recognized. Consider the evidence regarding this historical significance, in the links that will be provided here, and from which the argument here is constructed:
For the first time ever, a Republican campaign ad against Hillary Clinton is entirely truthful about her and focuses on the most important issue facing voters:
For the first time since 1932, an American Presidential campaign presents an opportunity for the public to overthrow the aristocracy.
And, for the first time in U. S. history, a realistic possibility exists that the voters’ choice between the two Parties’ Presidential nominees might turn out to be between two enemies of the aristocracy: Bernie Sanders versus Donald Trump.

WATCH BERNIE SANDERS DEFEND FIDEL CASTRO IN 1985 INTERVIEW

Bernie Sanders has made a big deal out of distancing himself from extreme leftist ideologies. He has made it clear over and over again, that he supports the kind of democratic socialism that is seen in Northern Europe, and has no intention of bringing heavy-handed totalitarian socialism to America. That may well be true, but he also seems to have a disturbing bias for those regimes.
In a 1985 interview, Sanders tried to explain why the Cuban people hadn’t tried to overthrow their own government, and why the people of Nicaragua wouldn’t do the same. His explanation speaks volumes about his socialist beliefs.

Power beyond mind control

‘All thought is not the same. There is random static. There is repetitious and circular rumination. There is thought devoted to solving a problem or analyzing a situation. Then there is thought that occurs when one is creating something that never existed before. To blithely say that ‘externally inserted’ mind control can replace all levels of thinking without a person being aware of what is going on is foolish.’ (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
Consciousness wants to create new consciousness, and it can. Imagination is how it does it. If there were some ultimate state of consciousness, imagination would always be able to play another card and take it further.
In any arena of life, and especially when it comes to the mind, perception, power, empathy, and so on, there is always a status quo. It’s merely the place where a person says, ‘Well, that’s enough. I’ll settle for what I have. I’ll stop here.’
Sooner or later, this leads to boredom, frustration, problems, and conflict. It leads to a decline.
Imagination, which knows no bounds, is the source for the most adventurous explorations. It can have great impact on the material world, of course, but one mustn’t therefore conclude it is composed of matter or energy. Imagination is non-material. To think otherwise winds you up in using some version of physics to depict imagination – and then you are imposing limits on it. This is an error. Imagination doesn’t obey any laws of physics.

The Sea Island Conspiracy

Over the long weekend before the Mississippi and Michigan primaries, the sky above Sea Island was black with corporate jets.
Apple’s Tim Cook, Google’s Larry Page and Eric Schmidt, Napster’s Sean Parker, Tesla Motors’ Elon Musk, and other members of the super-rich were jetting into the exclusive Georgia resort, ostensibly to participate in the annual World Forum of the American Enterprise Institute.
Among the advertised topics of discussion: ‘Millennials: How Much Do They Matter and What Do They Want?’
That was the cover story.
As revealed by the Huffington Post, Sea Island last weekend was host to a secret conclave at the Cloisters where oligarchs colluded with Beltway elites to reverse the democratic decisions of millions of voters and abort the candidacy of Donald Trump.
Among the journalists at Sea Island was Rich Lowry of National Review, which just devoted an entire issue to the topic: ‘Against Trump,’ and Arthur Sulzberger, publisher of the Trumphobic New York Times.

MOTHER, SHOULD I TRUST THE GOVERNMENT? (Oldie but Goodie)

Originally Published in June 2013

Mother, do you think they’ll drop the bomb?
Mother, do you think they’ll like this song?
Mother, do you think they’ll try to break my balls?
Ooh ah,
Mother, should I build the wall?
Mother, should I run for president?
Mother, should I trust the government?
Mother, will they put me in the firing line?
Ooh ah,
Is it just a waste of time?
Pink Floyd – Mother
The lyrics to Mother had both a literal and figurative meaning for Roger Waters. He was literally describing his overprotective single mother (his father was killed in World War II) building walls to protect him from the outside world. The figurative meaning is Big Mother sending its boys off to war and using fear to control and manipulate the masses. At the time he wrote this song in 1979, the Soviet Union was thought to be at its peak of power and the Berlin Wall represented a boundary between good and evil. Nuclear war was still a looming fear. Waters has always had a dim view of totalitarian states and institutions (English schools). Having seen his Wall Tour performance this past summer at Citizens Bank Park with a diverse crowd of 40,000, ranging in age from senior citizens to teenagers, it seems this song has gained new meaning. He sang a duet with himself from 1980 projected on the Wall and when he sang the lyric, ‘Mother, should I trust the government?’ the entire stadium responded in unison – NO!!! This revealed a truth that is not permitted to be discussed by the corporate mainstream media acting as a mouthpiece for the ruling class. A growing legion of citizens in this country does not trust the government. This is very perceptive on their part.

BARACK O’BOMBER COMPLAINS BITCOIN IS LIKE HAVING A SWISS BANK ACCOUNT IN YOUR POCKET

Barry Soetoro, or as he goes by now, Barack Obama, just sat down for an interview in Texas that made headlines because of his insistence government has a right to spy on you anytime, anywhere.
It was a ridiculous interview – full of the usual spin and lies – but it did show how even the most powerful politicians are being rocked by the internet these days.
And how this is puncturing their gassy rhetoric.
They can’t get away with pontificating about freedom while passing secret orders to rip away freedoms and privacy. They actually have to make arguments to justify the fascism they’re trying to push. And it’s very hard to make those arguments as O’Bomber is finding out,
In a pre-Internet era, Barack would have turned the FBI loose to intimidate the pertinent parties just the way they did with Ma Bell. But there are too many companies making too many products and he and other politicians have lost the old tools of intimidation.

Better The Kim We Know…

Happiness is having your very own atomic bomb. This week we saw pictures of beaming North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, examining either a nuclear model or maybe even the real warhead of a miniaturized nuclear weapon.
Having a nuclear warhead is not, however, enough to scare your enemies and neighbors. You’ve got to have a fast, reliable delivery system. On his last birthday, a joyous Kim revealed what may be a submarine-launched missile believed capable of carrying a nuclear weapon.
Added to Kim’s new intercontinental ballistic missile (which may or may not work), the sub-launched strategic missile gave the South Koreans, Japanese and Americans apoplexy. China was not far behind in blasting the impudent North Koreans.
Meanwhile, a hugely provocative military exercise is underway, involving 15,000 US troops, 300,000 South Koreans, and an armada of US warplanes and warships. These war games are an annual event that enrages North Korea because they are obviously rehearsing an invasion of the North, and the decapitation of its leadership – namely Kim Jong-un.

“Never Seen Anything Like This Before” – Sweden Stunned At “Unreal” Surge In Refugee Sex Attacks

As a direct result of Europe’s refugee crisis, new and very unpleasant social fractures have started to emerge.
One particularly troubling issue is the extent to which officials have tended to ‘blame the victim” in the ever more frequent sex attacks resulting from Europe’s refugee surge, something we first touched uponearlier this week. For instance, Cologne mayor Henriette Reker drew sharp criticism for suggesting that it was German womens’ duty to prevent assaults by keeping would-be assailants ‘at arm’s length.’
Then there was the now infamous case of the 17-year-old Danish girl who faced a fine from police after she allegedly used “illegal” pepper spray to deter an attacker.
In the most recent example of authorities suggesting that Europeans should adapt to threats rather than compelling authorities to protect citizens, police in Sweden’s stersund advised women not to walk around by themselves at night, during at press conference on Monday.

VIDEO: Trump Attacked In Ohio: ‘The Oligarchs Are Unleashing Their Embedded Socialists To Deliver Chaos’

Just minutes after we published an article in which Karl Denninger argues that silencing trump as was done in Chicago will leave only one option for Americans who believe the Constitution has been attacked and supplanted, new video footage from a Saturday morning rally in Ohio shows that ‘protesters’ are becoming more brazen, now coming for the candidate himself.
As the video footage below shows, Trump was attacked by someone near the stage. Within seconds the Secret Service moved in.

Trump Blames “Organized Thugs” For Violence, Establishment Blames Trump

Amid confusion over the cancellation (due to more security concerns) of today’s rally in Ohio – since denied by Trump campaign officials – the finger of blame for last night’s violent protests is wending its way through the mainstream media. First Cruz, then Rubio, followed this morning by Hillary, Kasich, and even Bernie (among various talking heads and ‘spinners’) all point to Trump’s campaign “for creating an environment of division.” Trump (and his supporters) see the sudden eruption of 1000s of well coordinated protesters as oddly coincidental ahead of Super Tuesday 3 next week noting that, rather against the establishment’s hopes, “The organized group of people, many of them thugs, who shut down our First Amendment rights in Chicago, have totally energized America!”
Following Chicago’s chaos, it appears, as Reuters reports, today’s Ohio rally was also under pressure from security concerns, but the cancellation has been denied:
A spokeswoman for U. S. Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Saturday denied a media report that he had canceled an Ohio rally because of security concerns. The Cincinnati.com news website had quoted Eric Deters, a local spokesman for Trump’s campaign, as saying the candidate’s Secret Service security detail could not complete preparations in time to hold the event on Sunday at Cincinnati’s Duke Energy Convention Center.

So Guess Who Showed Up Last Night?

Yesterday there was a protest while Trump was speaking in St. Louis, and then again in Chicago; the latter prompting Trump to cancel his campaign rally.
Trump did the right thing. But folks, if you’re on the fence, or anything other than a supporter of both communism and terrorism, you cannot stand for what happened yesterday.
These people weren’t “protesting”, they were attempting to denying a man’s First Amendment right to speak by threatening violence.
In St. Louis this featured at least one man stomping a flag while wearing a “**** the police” t-shirt.
In Chicago there were many Mexican flags flown, including some being worn as clothing, among the crowd, panned across repeatedly on live TV. Therre were hoards of people who swarmed the parking garage, smashing car windows. And who else was there, probably instigating it all?
Former leader of the Weather Underground (that’s a domestic terrorist organization that actually set off bombs at the Capitol, the Department of State and the Pentagon along with blowing up a statute in Chicago and committing arson in New York City) Bill Ayres.

Trump and Hitler: A Detailed Comparison

Trump = Hitler. The evidence is overwhelming.
Trump is of German descent on his father’s side. This makes Trump suspect because Hitler was also German. The last U. S. president with a German-American father was Dwight Eisenhower, who served as Supreme Commander of the Nazi Forces in Europe. General Eisenhower somehow managed to overcome this political liability to be elected president less than a decade later but he retained pro-Berlin sympathies throughout his time in office. According to one blogger, Hitler remained Eisenhower’s preeminent inspiration. Is this the chance we want to take with another German in the White House?
Trump’s admiration for Nazi Germany is one reason he has almost no support from U. S. military veterans. We could not expect patriotic vets to support such a man, especially older ones, who remember World War II first- or second-hand.
Last month, Trump retweeted a quote incorrectly attributed to Mussolini by an anti-Trump activist who was hoping to trick Trump into retweeting. What other proof do we need regarding Trump’s fascism? Yet there is more. Intellectuals schooled in postmodern textual analysis understand that campaign references to ‘#TrumpTrain’ are code language paying tribute to the Nazi trains that transported millions to death camps in the 1940s. This alone should disqualify Trump from high office yet his supporters turn a blind eye to the outrage.
The same accusations of fascism were made against Barry Goldwater in 1964. We know how that turned out. Although he was crushed in the national election by the virtuous Lyndon Johnson, Goldwater went on to lead a well-armed mob of fanatics in his attempt to overthrow the new government two years later, with thousands dying as a result.

Shocker: After Caving To Protests, Mizzou Has HUGE Budget Gap

The University of Missouri (MU) is losing about 1500 students and is facing a huge $32 million budget shortfall four months after it attracted national attention as the site of massive race-based campus protests.
‘I am writing to you today to confirm that we project a very significant budget shortfall due to an unexpectedly sharp decline in first-year enrollments and student retention this coming fall. I wish I had better news,’ said MU interim chancellor Hank Foley in a Wednesday letter to school staff that was obtained by Fox Sports.

Chicago Community Organizers Mobilize Flash Mobs to Shut Down Trump Campaign Rally

21st Century Wire says…
The 2016 Election has been one of many firsts. Last night saw an unprecedented incident – where flash mobs from an opposing political party were successful in shutting down a presidential political rally.
Up to this point, GOP front-runner Donald Trump was getting hit from every conceivable angle, but mostly from his own party. Last night things took a disturbing partisan turn…
Early Friday evening, thousands of Trump attendees were already people packed into an indoor arena at the University of Illinois in Chicago, when the event was suddenly canceled after hundreds of young Democrat student protesters took the venue floor, before clashing with Trump’s Republican supporters only minutes before the candidate was due was to speak.

“Take a Dive in November!” Says a Major Neocon Republican

The Republican establishment is frantic over Trump. Trump has called the political establishment’s bluff. He has made an end run around their vetting process. This is a replay of Goldwater’s nomination in 1964.
The Republican establishment took a dive in that election. It threw the election to Johnson. Now a major neoconservative theorist is recommending the same strategy.
Robert Kagan is a Republican, a former adviser to Hillary Clinton, a “nonpartisan” Brookings Institution staff member, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and a member of Yale’s secret society, Skull & Bones. He is probably the #1 neoconservative theorist in foreign policy. He is part of a family of Kagans who share his views. You can read about him on Wikipedia.
He is at the top of the CFR’s academic establishment. He has recently written a column in which he calls for the creation of a third party as a way to stop Trump. He wrote this in the liberal Beltway Washington Post.
Thus so far the collective Republican reaction to the great question of our time: If Donald Trump wins the nomination, will the party support this would-be authoritarian to inhabit the nation’s most powerful office? To watch Republicans and conservatives wrestle with this question is to understand how political parties die and how democracies give rise to authoritarian rulers . . . Consider that Trump is displaying these flashes of bullying authoritarianism while he is still courting us. Imagine when he no longer needs to court anyone, when he has amassed a large enough popular following to win the White House. We are supposed to believe that at that point, after a campaign in which his devoted throngs have cheered every threat and insult — against judges and newspapers and speakers of the House — he is suddenly going to become Calvin Coolidge?
Trump’s supporters obviously aren’t worried about any of this. But what about those in the Republican Party who do worry about Trump? Shouldn’t they be willing to do whatever is necessary to prevent him from winning the presidency, including voting against him in the general election, if that proves to be the only way?

The Libertarian Party Must Be Disbanded

You ought to read this one…
The Gallup Poll has a new estimate of the number of libertarians in the American electorate. In their 2015 Governance survey they find that 27 percent of respondents can be characterized as libertarians, the highest number it has ever found. The latest results also make libertarians the largest group in the electorate, as compared to 26 percent conservative, 23 percent liberal, and 15 percent populist.
So why does the so-called Libertarian Party never manage to get more than 5% in a national election?
Because they never run a Libertarian candidate.
Take Gary Johnson. He’s their apparent retread this election cycle; his embarrassing loss, after making grand predictions last time, hasn’t dissuaded him from bringing his fraud-laced claims (which were a big part of why I resigned from said party’s state EC) back to the “party” once again.
You can – and should – apply the following litmus tests to any so-called “Libertarian”:
There are 50,000-odd gun laws and regulations on the federal books right now, all of which in some way violate the very simple words in the 2nd Amendment: shall not be infringed. How many of those, as the Executive where the power to enforce laws rests, will you refuse to enforce and how many will you demand be repealed by Congress before any other act comes across your desk or you will veto all said bills until they do? (If the answer is anything other than “all of them” to both parts of said question that candidate is neither Libertarian nor does he or she support the Constitution as written.)

‘Evil Joke’: Iran Told to Pay $10.5 Billion to 9/11 Kin, Insurers

Iran was ordered by a New York City judge to pay more than $10.5 billion in damages to the families of those killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Bloomberg reported.
U.S. District Judge George Daniels ruled on Wednesday that Tehran must pay $7.5 billion to the families of people who died at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Daniels also awarded $3 billion to a group of insurers that paid property damage, business interruption and other claims.
Hossein Sheikholeslam, a senior aide to Iran’s parliamentary speaker outlined Tehran’s position on the issue in an interview with Sputnik Persian.
The investigation was partly secret but, judging by what was made public, the main suspect was Saudi Arabia, not Iran since all the masterminds were either Saudi nationals or lived and studied in Saudi Arabia, he added.
