Trump Derangement Syndrome
The Washington Post, Completely Unhinged
Look at the "Newspaper of Record" in the Nation's Capital. Completely apoplectic at the possibility of the People choosing their own Leader. A Warmonger! They call him...because of course the candidate who has vociferously opposed America's stupid, counterproductive wars is the one who'll lead us into war. A Hatemonger! Because he's the only candidate even suggesting regaining control of the nation's borders.
Meanwhile the Post runs daily ads for Hillary, masquerading as news articles. Hillary, of course, is bought-and-paid-for by the financial and political elite who actually run the country. Maybe we'll have us another Mideast war or two which should make all of them ecstatic.
Here are some screenshots of the Post's political commentary over the past few weeks.
Granted, the Post will oppose any Republican. A one-party state is always the end game for leftists. That's why they've imported over 50 million new voters into the USA and are busy wrecking every other western nation as we speak. They didn't like America or her voters so they simply got a law passed in 1965 to replace the electorate.
But their apoplexy over Trump is truly breathtaking.
The corrupt Establishment won't go easily or quietly, in either party. They'd rather wreck the nation than share power. In fact, that's exactly what they've done.
Naturally, the Establishment Media likes the Establishment Candidates. No matter how stupid and feckless (Rubio) or criminal and dishonest (Hillary) they are. They like the ones who can be bought. That's what makes them the Establishment!
Meanwhile, as we've seen over the past several years,
"immigration reform" is just code for keeping our open borders more permanently open. Trump is the only candidate in memory to so much a suggest getting control of our borders. And BTW, when you don't have borders, you don't have a nation.
Trump is opposed to America's endless overseas wars; he supported national health care (single payer even, though he has waffled on this one lately), higher tariffs on imports to protect American (mostly blue collar) jobs, expanding the regulatory power of government by using public money to build bridges, roads, hospitals and create ready jobs; Mr. Trump has also supported abortion rights, same-sex marriage (he opposed DOMA), opposed the Citizens United decision and has been a supporter and advocate for Planned Parenthood. Unlike other Republicans, he’s insisted that Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid must be protected. His stances are almost diametrically opposed to the other Republicans---why do you think they hate him so much?
Over and above all that, here are the man's actual words about America's endless Middle East Wars, and they clarify why the Ruling Class (in both parties) is so incensed:
“We've spent $4 trillion trying to topple various people that, frankly, if they were still there and if we could have spent that $4 trillion in the United States to fix our roads, our bridges, and all of the other problems — we would have been a lot better off, I can tell you that right now.
“We have done a tremendous disservice not only to the Middle East — we've done a tremendous disservice to humanity. The people that have been killed, the people that have been wiped away — and for what? It's not like we had victory. It's a mess. The Middle East is totally destabilized, a total and complete mess. I wish we had the 4 trillion dollars or 5 trillion dollars. I wish it were spent right here in the United States on schools, hospitals, roads, airports, and everything else that is all falling apart!"
Herewith, a few non-establishment perspectives:
Of course, the Post wants Marco Rubio to face Hillary, because they know he'll lose big. And Rubio gets his financial backing from the likes of Norman Braman, Paul Singer, and Sheldon Adelson---billionaire gangsters who are on record as saying the USA can rot so long as Israel gets whatever it wants. Not just Israel---but the right-wing, warmongering Likud.
"Sheldon Adelson is looking to give big dollars to Rubio because he feels he can mold him into his perfect little puppet. I agree!'
— Donald J. Trump, October 13, 2015
Not coincidentally, Rubio's tax plan would completely eliminate taxes on investment income. Guess who pays to make up for those billions? The middle class, of course.
Meanwhile, Rubio will shine brightly when (or should we say "if") the media confronts him over the fact that he would force a child raped by a relative to carry a baby to term. Just wait until he has to actually defend some of his positions. Of course, the MSM is firmly in St.Hillary's camp so they'll be waiting until after the primaries are over to bring out their big guns. They're hoping a lost boy like Marco wins the R nomination because they know he'll be trounced in the general election.
He's just a callow water boy for cynical, moneyed interests. Even some Republicans can see that.
“The power of the press in America is a primordial one. It sets the agenda of public discussion, and this sweeping political power is unrestrained by any law. It determines what people will talk and think about—an authority that in other nations is reserved for tyrants, priests, parties and mandarins.”
(The Making of the President 1972, Theodore White)
Update: If the voters choose Trump, the voters must be ignored.
William Roper: So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!
Sir Thomas More: Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?
William Roper: Yes, I'd cut down every law in England to do that!
Sir Thomas More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down, and you're just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!
