Hillary Clinton with respect to her Syrian “no-fly” zone policy: “So our missiles, even if they are standoff missiles so we’re not putting our pilots at risk—you’re going to kill a lot of Syrians,” she said. “So all of a sudden this intervention that people talk about so glibly becomes an American and NATO involvement where you take a lot of civilians.” – Goldman Sachs speech via the Podesta emails
Contrary to her many lies and half-truths issued during the debate, people, including Americans, are quite expendable to Hillary Clinton. But more that in a moment.
A colleague of mine passed on a blog post by Brandon Smith which posits a theory that somehow Trump will be “allowed” to win and then the elitists will let the system crash. They don’t want one of “theirs” in the line of fire when it becomes impossible to keep the system from collapsing. This is not an uncommon school of thought in the alternative media audience and Hillary Clinton is firmly ensconced in the political neoconservative fascism of the elitist Establishment that controls DC for the most part. Brandon Smith generally provides good insight and compelling analysis of current events.
But if Smith’s specific prophecies ever came to fruition, I’d give his arguments serious consideration. Like the rest of us, only his general economic and political trend prophecies play out. Predicting Brexit passage is not unique to him. I always thought it would pass, as did many others. His use of “global elitists” is incorrect. It should be “western elitists.” They DO NOT have any control over Russia/China and that’s why the next big thing will be a war by proxy in Syria that likely will lead to some form of an escalated conflict – possibly in the S China Sea and Ukraine. Hopefully it won’t lead to the nuclear option, although it’s pretty obvious that both Russia and the U.S. are preparing for that possibility.
If Trump gets elected, it’s because there were too many people who showed up to vote for him and against HRC – not because Smith’s “global” elitists “let him win.” They can rig the vote count if it’s close. But not if Trump were to garner enough votes to win by more than a few % points. Exit polling is a form of check and balance that prevents complete confiscation of the voting process.
Smith erroneously ignores the “random probabilities” variable – maybe because he never studied advanced statistics in the context of economic models. “Randomness” – It’s a law of nature. No one can control that. Just ask the Nobel “rocket” scientists who told us Long Term Capital was perfectly hedged against any and all market occurrences. I think the western elitists have more control than most people understand or are willing to believe – especially the ilk that supports HRC – but not nearly the control that Smith attributes.
I finally watched the entire debate. I think it was closer than Trump supporters want to believe. The stench of the propaganda drooling from between HRC’s smiling face-sewer was sickening, especially given that her supporters truly believe that HRC is being genuine. She doesn’t care about the middle class or women or minorities any more than any other DC politician. Constituents are a “necessary evils” to these people – warm bodies with a vote. Certainly that’s what HRC believes, which was made evident by the quotes pulled from the speeches she gave to Wall Street banks – for which she was paid $600 thousand per appearance.
“I’m Kind Of Far Removed” From The Struggles Of The Middle Class “Because The Life I’ve Lived And The Economic, You Know, Fortunes That My Husband And I Now Enjoy.” – Hillary Clinton to a Goldman Sachs audience of HRC Foundation and Campaign donors via the Podesta emails thankfully leaked by Wikileaks
Perhaps the Donald’s best attack on her was when he asked how come she won’t use any portion of her $100s of millions in wealth to fund her campaign. All of her campaign money comes from wealthy donors who will receive big favors – mostly sizeable Government contracts awarded to their businesses, or the maintenance of the carried interest tax loophole (George Soros will make certain that remains intact) or access to our markets and defense weaponry (Saudi Arabia, which is a huge contributor to the Clinton “Fourndation”).
By the way, how on earth did Bill and Hillary Clinton manage to amass hundreds of millions of dollars in net worth?
Make no mistake, I am not supporting Trump. In fact, I have not voted since 1992. Voting is irrelevant. Just ask Obama supporters who now get it (most of them still are oblivious or will not make disparaging remarks about Obama out of fear of being a labelled a “racist.”
