Will America Explode First?

 

There has been any number of editorials commenting about the presumed unrest in the United States. They all, more often than not, have referred to the extreme anger and protest existing on social media. They assume that as social media was largely quiet during the Presidency of Barack Obama and has been very noisy since the election of Donald Trump as President that the United States public was more unified during the former and very distressed now. There have been those who point out that there is this old expression of the “silent majority” which was described as what awoke to elect President Reagan. This was presumed to explain that the “silent majority” actually is silent. There is some support to this as these are presumed to be the older people plus ones who are not as computer active as the ones now protesting so vehemently. After all, they are presumably silent, right? Still, how completely upside down and fouled does the world, and the United States in particular, have to be for Donald Trump to be elected to the Presidency? That has been one of the overriding questions which are somewhat more difficult to answer. Had the election gone the other direction, there would be people asking how far things must have gone awry and has become to elect Hillary Clinton. The other question is how crazy have things become that an avowed socialist and former Communist to almost win the Democrat primary elections. Well, how far gone have things become in the United States?

 

The first point that we believe shows that the political class has completely lost all connection with reality has been the debt. Things were viewed as having reached the verge to going off the rails when George W. Bush was elected President and the debt stood near five-trillion dollars. Eight short years later the debt had all but doubled pushing towards ten-trillion dollars. Then enter President Barack Obama and another short eight years later and the debt had almost doubled again approaching twenty-trillion dollars. Things actually went off the rails far earlier when the politicians decided that they could only afford to pay the interest on the debt and never pay down the debt. When under President Willian Jefferson Clinton with a Republican Congress managed to make a budget that on paper did not add to the deficit, the nation celebrated as if President Andrew Jackson completely paid off the debt which was celebrated on January 8, 1835. By the end of 1935, the debt had returned to between thirty to thirty-five billion dollars. Apparently, the debt had been eradicated for just a few weeks and then Congress returned to business as usual. Debt appears to be the norm and not the exception. Eventually, one of two things are going to happen, either there will be a Constitutional Convention called by the States to amend the Constitution placing a balanced budget amendment onto the Constitution with a stipulation that some percentage, ten sounds like a good number, of each budget must be applied to the principle of any existing debt until all debt is vanquished and to be reapplied instantly should new debt accrue. Anything short will lead to the worst possible option, default.

 

Eventually the interest on the debt will exceed the ability to allow paying the full amount and still running the government and meeting promised payments and allotments. Now it is possible to continue to pay the interest and all government expenses as long as there is somewhere for the United States to borrow the necessary amounts of money. This became a problem when China closed its loan office to the United States. This led to some creative financing. The Federal Reserve sold the United States the needed moneys while creating this money through bonds which it gave to the main lending banks. This method works just fine providing that these funds remain dormant in the lending banks. The problem comes when the economy becomes more active and there comes a demand for more loans and these funds begin to be utilized by the loaning banks. This is called giving the money velocity in economics. This leads to inflation as the money supply begins to increase, and in this case possibly rapidly. With inflation comes the problem of removing this excess currency from the monetary supply. There are two means for completing this task, taxes and interest rates. There are, needless to point out, ramifications to each of these means. Increasing interest rates makes the interest on the debt, which is refreshed through short-term loans on the debt, rise and eventually this leads to default or spiraling inflation. So raising interest rates is out of the question and explains why interest rates have been artificially kept so low. The other means is taxes and increasing taxes ends the economic activity and leads to less tax moneys being collected. This would also eventually lead to default or spiraling inflation. Any means used will, eventually, lead to default on the debt which will cause a loss in faith of the dollar. What would that cause?

 

A crisis in the dollar would have any number of consequences. First, and likely the most devastating, the world would all but immediately demand that some different or group of different monetary notes be used as the new reserve currency. If a group of currencies were chosen, there would be some form of complicated and intricate formula to determine what the rest of the world’s currencies would be worth. The other choice would be some mythical means for establishing exchange rates and the various values of currencies. The reason for these confusions and problems is easy to explain, gold is no longer the basis of any currency. As the dollar was the reserve currency when President Nixon took the dollar off the gold standard, he took the world off the gold standard and now currencies floated against the arbitrary value of the dollar. This is also why gold prices fluctuate against the dollar, though they actually do not gain or lose value. If you were to figure what a Ferrari would have cost in gold in 1971 and then figured the price of a Ferrari cost in gold today, the difference would be relatively negligible. That is why these claims that investing in precious metals, especially gold, will make you more wealthy in the future. It will not, you may receive more dollars, Federal Reserve Notes, but they will have very much the same purchasing power as the money you utilized to purchase the gold in the first place.

Would defaulting on the debt ruin the United States? Interestingly enough, such a default would allow the United States to get out of debt faster. The dollar would immediately lose much of its value and imported goods would become prohibitively more expensive. On the other hand, it would make American made goods extremely affordable to the rest of the world, except China who falsely set their currency tied to the dollar, so China would also become a pauper nation. This would allow the United States to become a prime location for manufacturing, as American labor prices would be lower than almost everywhere else where the ability of the work force is comparable. Made in America would become desirable once again not only for quality but also for affordability. Still, a default would be ruinous for American business initially and numerous companies, especially those manufacturing overseas, would find they were no longer able to be profitable and they would be replaced by new companies which would spring up almost overnight. The largest problem would be foreign corporations and billionaires could buy large shares of American companies which would provide the United States with the funding to climb out of the hole they would find themselves to have fallen. The real losers would be those people holding stocks and other investments which were in dollars as overnight they would become almost worthless compared to their value just a few days, possibly hours earlier. Such a default might lead to another stock market crash but the following dark days could be avoided providing that Congress was locked in political gridlock and unable to act. Financial bubbles burst and that makes room for new smaller bubbles to begin. That is the normal cycle for investing, especially if you are investing in tulips in the Netherlands from 1619 to 1622 when the bottom fell out when one person decided that tulips were not worth their price and everyone realized that mania had led them astray. Those left holding tulips had lousy investments but very pretty flowers to show for the insanity. On that flowery lesson, we will let the American mania continue and see when their crash comes or if they might be saved by some sagely leadership, whenever that is proven to be found. In the meantime, stay tuned for more fun and watch the crazed social media; it can be amusing as long as nobody gets hurt.

Games Played by Mahmoud Abbas

 

Mahmoud Abbas knows that he is detested by many of the people over whom he rules in an area, which is permitted semi-autonomous governance, and spends his time all but trapped in his compound in Ramallah. He is viewed, or pretended, to be the key person who decides whether or not there will be peace and is the person most sought when Presidents of the United States decide to tackle the Arab-Israeli conflict. He is plied with bribes, platitudes and given additional pieces of precious real estate all in a fruitless effort for some magical two-state solution to the Palestinian problem. He is currently awaiting the new President of the United States, Donald Trump, to come bearing gifts and bribes in his effort to make what the President himself describes as the “ultimate deal” claiming it presents him with what may be his greatest challenge in solving. The fact that President Trump has set making peace where all before have failed likely has brightened the eyes of Mahmoud Abbas as he knows that he holds the final card to be played and has always laid down the deal breaker instead of playing the peace card. This is a problem of his own making as he has countless times promised that there can be no peace as long as Israel remains the Jewish State. By this, he means that Israel retains its Jewish majority and has not permitted the influx of five to as many as eight million Muslim Arab refugees who will simply vote the Jew out of existence. That is the deal-breaking card he holds to play last. How President Trump can change this reality, does not need remain a mystery. Recognizing Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel, the Heart of Judaism and the center of Israeli governance with the location of the Supreme Court, almost all government central offices and the Knesset Building (see image below) itself where the governance sits as well as the offices of the President and Prime Minister are all nested plus the Temple Mount, the site of the future Temple and place of the First and Second Temples.

Meanwhile, Mahmoud Abbas has his toes in the waters warmed to a pleasing temperature by Iran where the initial requirement is reconciliation between Fatah, the PLO and the Iranian backed Hamas government in Gaza. There has been a tentative agreement reached and the initial phase has been established with Hamas permitting the Palestinian Authority to take over the Rafah Crossing into Egypt, a crossing the Egyptians currently have closed. This turnover is far more symbolic than any actual concession as Hamas brings in most of their weaponry through tunnels under the Egyptian border and receives almost all necessary trade goods, foods, medical supplies and exports their produce and products through the Erez Crossing and the Kerem Shalom Crossing through which numerous tons of goods are transferred.

 

According to the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, “Well over a million tons of humanitarian supplies entered Gaza from Israel over the last 18 months equaling nearly a ton of aid for every man, woman and child in Gaza.” These deliveries are usually a well kept secret the media prefers not to discuss as it would take away from the image they prefer to paint Israel as the militarist giant which crushed Gazan hopes by shooting Gaza flotilla ships out of the water, another lie as they actually simply have them unload their goods at the port in Ashkelon and truck their goods into Gaza after assuring there are no weapons or dual use forbidden provisions. Israel also provides Gaza with approximately one third to one half of their electricity and much of their fresh water which is also not covered as the “blockade” which had been investigated by the European Union and United Nations and found both necessary and allowing humanitarian aid passage to both groups satisfaction, also something not often discussed. Much more fun to claim Israel is an awful task master as that is a far more popular image painted.

Further, Mahmoud Abbas has also left himself open to offers from Iran to provide all the necessary items to arm the Palestinian Authority, PLO and any other forces willing to assist in the Iranian dream of destroying Israel. Such weapons and other wonderful explosive items would be stored in Area A where the IDF is not permitted to operate, which includes but is not limited to places such as Nablus (Biblical Shechem), Bethlehem, Ramallah, Jenin and Hebron (Biblical Hevron). The Iranians would also desire to infiltrate IRGC* troops and likely their vaunted Quds force, a group specifically trained to take control of Jerusalem, specifically the Temple Mount and Old City which makes up much of what the Arabs refer to as East Jerusalem; Israelis and Jews simply refer to Jerusalem as an undivided city and it is governed as such. The main reason that Mahmoud Abbas is not jumping quite yet for the Iranian promised goodies, as well likely large amounts of funds which he can siphon off a good thirty or forty percent, is because he is waiting for a separate and potentially more lucrative deal from President Trump. This is why any Iran dealings either must be very deeply kept secrets, something an IDF intercepting Iranian weapons smuggling would expose. If President Trump were to suspect that Mahmoud Abbas was on the cusp of making a deal with Iran, then President Trump would be disabused of the notion that peace was possible. That would spoil any hopes of deal-making.

 

The Hamas reconciliation has continued at a painfully slow rate and is currently not exactly proceeding smoothly, another good point for making deals with President Trump is problems with completing reunification with Hamas. Everything Mahmoud Abbas does, he does with great care to make sure that he can, at any point, refute charges that he is making or breaking any deal he has in the works. Deal with Hamas, well, it is on for Hamas while working out particular and off as far as President Trump is told as it fell apart as you can plainly see but still moving forward as far as Iran is concerned so as to meet their expectations. If at this point you are confused, then Mahmoud Abbas has succeeded in dealing honestly with you. If you are capable of following this, well, he has muddied the water far more thoroughly than our simple little explanation has displayed. This is the typical number of balls the clown that is Mahmoud Abbas juggles on average with sometimes an Intifada to arrange while decrying the Israeli violence when police or IDF soldiers stop an attack or prevent one by intercepting the terrorist or sometimes shooting one. More often than reported, the shot terrorist is then given Israel assistance in an Israeli hospital free and nursed back to health and returned home when able where they receive a hero’s welcome.

 

Then there was this gem as reported in the New York Times, captioning a picture by Reuters of the teen in an Israeli hospital bed (see image below) “President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority said Ahmad Manasra, 13, was killed by an Israeli on Monday. Then Israel released video of the living boy being treated in a hospital on Thursday.” Numerous news outlets quickly picked up the Abbas story word-for-word from the liar’s lips right onto their front pages or lead on the evening news all about the Israelis murdering this innocent young man simply for running when police ordered him to stop. Below the image is a video of him and his cousin chasing down Israelis with their knives in hand for stabbing them and at the end of the video with knife at the ready about to charge two armed Israeli police officers across the street. This was when he was shot. The story of his survival took from one day to close to a week if ever being corrected by news broadcasts and print and on-line media. Well, which story fits the average world media site better, Israel treats teenage terrorist shot while attacking police or Israeli police murder Palestinian child in cold blood, hear Mahmoud Abbas and his cold description of this horrid act of cold-blooded murder. Also, news providers hate being duped and hate reporting they were duped even worse. They should not feel bad, Mahmoud Abbas is a master at duping the media, which, of course, is not difficult as they drool for any Israel is evil story and then rush when they have one, forgetting to check their facts, but why allow facts to ruin a perfect accusation.

Now Mahmoud Abbas is readying to dupe the media and another United States President as he has been doing since he came to power after the death of master terrorist Yasser Arafat. It should be noted that Mahmoud Abbas was directly included in the oversight of the planning and execution of the Munich Olympic Games Terror Attack in which almost the entire Israeli Olympic team was murdered by Black September Group terrorists, a special core group of the PLO which was led by Yasser Arafat, and Mahmoud Abbas was in charge of financing and making arrangements for movement, accessing platforms and other details vital to mission success. Mahmoud Abbas initiates terror, encourages terror and pays terrorists and their families for their acts of murder. The remunerations are tied directly to the number of Jews they murder. This reaches such a scale and is so abhorrent to any civilized person that the United States Congress has passed the Taylor Force Act to cut off aid to the Palestinian Authority uses for this purpose. This is mostly a feel good piece of legislation as Mahmoud Abbas will simply rename the funds and continue to pay the families and terrorists in prisons exactly what they get before this legislation and nothing will have changed. The United States will continue funding Mahmoud Abbas and his merry band of murderers and Abbas will continue the pay to slay salaries and incentives. Abbas has done everything he possibly can or will as soon as he thinks of new ways to reward terrorists. He made what has become his most infamous speech encouraging the beginning of the Stabbing Intifada with his “Filthy Feet” speech presented below.

 

 

Mahmoud Abbas has come up with a new incentive for terrorism by now promising that should the Israelis demolish your or your family’s house, the Palestinian Authority will build them an entirely new house for free, no more renting, no more mortgage payments, and a brand new house to replace whatever you lived in before. What a deal. There has been Arab terrorists who commit repeated attacks because in prison, they are fed and it is a means of making an income to support their family. Life in the Israeli prison for the terrorists includes soccer games, pretty much an open cell policy, frequent family and conjugal visitations and the prisoners have their own social life and picnic style lunches. For a description of the life of a terrorist, please read the article, “The Hard Life of Muslim Terrorists in Israeli Prison” for a fairly detailed and descriptive story. Needless to point out that this article is the exception, as again it does not paint Israel and the big, bad monster country run by a mob of venomous vipers who simply revel in the pain of others. Those stories are such a preponderance of evidence against Israelis that many people who came to Europe and took a Mediterranean cruise not realizing that Haifa, Ashkelon or even Tel Aviv were in Israel are shocked if they are brave enough to leave the ship and they find out Israelis are normative western society with some unique problems which have much to so with location and that Israel is not a police state with soldiers with machine guns on every corner just looking for an Arab without their identity card to shoot on the spot. Sure there are soldiers in uniform and many are carrying their service weapon with them, but that is part of what reduces the number of attacks and is what keeps our visitors safe as well as ourselves.

 

What amazes many is when they find out that the vast majority, approaching one-hundred percent, of Arabs or anyone shot in Israel by police or soldiers were in the commission of an act of crime which threatened lives. We do not shoot children for steeling an apple at the shuk. Many of the terrorists shot by police or soldiers were shot while actually attacking the obviously armed police or soldiers. One would ask why would a terrorist attack a heavily armed soldier carrying an assault rifle, a real capable of fully automatic assault rifle, not the pretend assault rifle Nancy Pelosi wants to ban which is really just a gun she believes looks ugly and threatening. The reason the terrorists, particularly the younger terrorists, attack heavily armed soldiers is two fold. First, they know if they get shot dead then their family receives an added bonus in their monthly payment for having a member of the family attack Israelis and this means their brothers and sisters will have enough to eat. Terrorism is quickly becoming the most popular, though not the longest lasting, job for Arab youths in the Palestinian Authority as their economy is ignored and poor at best. Secondly, it is an escape from a life where they have next to no possibility of getting married as their family is poor and men without money do not get wives. And finally, even should they survive, a good possibility as the soldiers and police are trained to shoot to injure rather than kill against lone terrorists, only if their lives are threatened are they even permitted this much defense. Often IDF soldiers have simply disarmed their attacker if not surprised, especially if they are very young, and then taken them home and turned them over to a worried mother still clutching the note from their ten year old or younger child telling mom not to worry, they have taken the knife missing from the kitchen and are going to kill the Jews. Turning them back to their mother will probably serve as a far better deterrent in many instances than arresting them. Yes, there are exceptions where parents send youths out to get the money from the government for the child perpetrating a terror act. The money paid by the Palestinian Authority is a great incentive to many and is a definite problem for all.

 

 

Meanwhile, President Trump according to reports is still stuck on two states for two people living side-by-side in peace, harmony and security. That is a pipe dream and a boat that will not float. If the Arab leadership had actually desired peace, there would be peace and if the IDF really did desire to genocidally murder Palestinian Arabs, there would be no Palestinian Arabs. Those are two truths which are basically ignored by the media and world leaders alike. President Trump will also ignore these truths at his own peril. Our advice, go one step beyond all other Presidents and move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem, recognize an undivided Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel and tell Mahmoud Abbas he has four months to reach an agreement with Israel after which the United States will support Israel taking complete control of all of Judea and Samaria and any resorting to terror or violence will bring that decision that much faster and Israel will be permitted to relocate as many Palestinians as Israel deems necessary with your blessings. Either you are going to make the deal of a lifetime or you are going to give the Israelis the deal of a lifetime, Abbas can choose which.

Politics in America Laid Bare

 

Politics in America has become a naked beast beating its chest and snarling at the election of one of the people, and not one from the political class, to the highest post in the land. The entireties of the Democrat Party in both the House of Representatives and Senate along with the majority of the leftists who support them have been completely unified in their opposition to everything having to do with President Donald Trump. They are opposed to the legality of his being elected. They see conspiracies in everything which caused his winning the election. They believe that there was interference against Hillary Clinton caused and financed by the Russian government and Vladimir Putin resulting in the Trump election. They despise the fact that the Electoral Congress can be permitted to allow the person not receiving the majority of the popular vote to still win the election, let alone by a commanding amount. Equally laid bare is the opposition by many in the heart of the Republican Party other than simply the most liberal, this core of the Republicans led by Senator John McCain, former President George W. Bush, Mitt Romney and seemingly far too many more. What has become apparent to us is that those who believe that the political class is made up of people whom, by their very nature, education, breeding and innate abilities, are better than those over whom they rule. Yes, they believe they have been placed in the government to rule over the remainder of the population and not to represent those who voted for them.

 

There are reasons as to why they believe they are superior to the general population. Far too many politicians are the children of people who were in politics, worked in the party and whose children are being groomed to follow in their parents privileged footprints. Many politicians were educated in elite private schools and brought up with privilege and from this came away with a feeling of superiority. Others actually came into politics from other areas and occupations but when one gets to Washington D.C. the majority have spent their entire life in the political arena. Spending their entire lives in private schools and then politics never having any interaction with what most would refer to as normal people often referred to as “Joe Six Pack” and have led very sheltered and protected lives. This has led to some politicians believing that they were destined to lead and their positions are a result of their breeding, privileged lives and higher intelligence. Their lives of general comfort and once in Washington ability to be above many laws simply adds to their self-fed-worth. Once in Washington D.C. they are granted freedom from parking tickets and as long as they can claim they were heading to a vote in Congress or some meeting, they are free from traffic violations including speeding. Finally, the largest invulnerability, they cannot be arrested for insider trading which when combined with their inside knowledge of what companies will soon receive huge government contracts signaling them to buy stock or the opposite of a company about to lose a contract which they can sell that stock, the members of Congress often become multi-millionaires within a few short years in Washington D.C.

 

These not so small differences between the American political class and everyone else are also part of another divide, a social and financial divide. The very wealthy who make the majority of their earnings through investments are almost entirely free from paying income taxes as they earn no income, they receive dividends. These people rub elbows with the political class making the political class feel even further removed from the average Americans. These people share the power over the remainder through campaign contributions, insider trading information, inside information on coming legislations and excessive influence over that legislation shared between each other, and enjoying entertaining evenings with drinks and access, these two classes form seamlessly into the power structure which decide much of the laws and interventions into personal lives which both conspire as they run the government. There is an unspoken agreement between the political class and the elite mega-business with wealth classes in which in exchange for preferential legislation these people of wealth and influence promise not to interfere with politics beyond campaign contributions. These guarantees especially extend not to take the office of any politician by running against them plus leaving the top positions to the political class as they are the only who are trained for these spots in exchange for legislative input. This is the agreement which Donald Trump broke when he ran and won the Presidency.

 

Now we need to be careful and clear. Nowhere near all politicians have these moral deficiencies whereby they sell out to those with the influence and money to cause legislation to at the least seldom harm their interests. These politicians are often easily recognized as they receive little if any assistance in their reelection efforts by the central party operations. The ones who are completely honest and solely working for their constituents back home as they will very often be opposed in the primary races every reelection effort with the party supporting their challenger. Eventually these politicians will lose their office and everything can return to what the party would refer to as normal. The political class work so closely together that they hold their fellow politicians as cohorts who join them as the ruling elite as more important along with the financial elite who pay for their campaigns, will provide them nice well-paying positions after retirement and with whom they often socialize as the community whom they serve and the voters are simply the rabble they must deal with all too regularly just to retain their pampered positions and their gravy-train lifestyles.

 

There are two forces opposing President Trump, one Democrat and one Republican. Let us talk about the Republicans first as most of what we say about them also applies to the Democrats. There are a fair number of Republicans who are actually leftists, not simply left-leaning or liberal, but true leftists. They believe in government solutions to every problem they encounter and believe that the closer to the top, to Washington D.C., the more efficient and better planned any solution can be made. Despite theoretical and experimental proof that the best solutions are those devised as locally as possible are the most efficient and the higher any solution is imposed from, the less likely it is that their solutions will be easily or properly applied across the board. Leftists may have conservative or liberal views and still be a leftist as leftists support larger government independent of their political bend. These two separate varieties of leftists will often work together in an I’ll scratch your back and you scratch mine trading support for one another’s legislative efforts. With either one, the people lose as neither cares about political limitations legally placed on the Federal Government by the Constitution. They believe that more government means better governing and governing is good for the people. There is another name for these people other than leftist, it is called fascists. Donald Trump is attempting to reduce government by undoing regulations which he can do without Congress and then working with Congress to reduce government and lower taxes. The Republican leftists who believe that more regulations and more government is better governance are fighting for everything they believe to be holy by fighting against President Trump.

 

Then there are a number of Republicans who believe that Trump is an interloper, an impostor, somebody completely unfit to be President. Many Democrats and almost all leftists also believe these to be truths. But there is a special group who are particularly put out by the election of President Trump. These are the many people who believe they should have won the Presidency or should have been the candidate to run against Hillary Clinton instead of Donald Trump. Heading this list is Senator John McCain followed closely by Jeb Bush and family, Mitt Romney and a number of the other Republicans who lost in the primaries to Trump as well as other Republicans who simply believe they are far more qualified to hold the office and take President Trump to be a personal insult. Then there are the core Republican power structure who feel they have lost control of their party as President Trump is out of and beyond control. They feel they no longer make the policies and this threatens their lifestyles. Should they no longer be capable of delivering the goods legislatively, then they may find themselves no longer invited to all the right social events. President Trump has done something which we believe is almost fun to watch, he has erased all the rules as to how power and money influence legislation and the distribution of power in politics. For libertarians that just might result in their dreams realized, though somewhat limited extent and for some it will appear a waste as their pet ideas may not be improved by the Trump Presidency.

 

For the Democrats who have unfortunately sold out to the leftist interest, President Trump in a nightmare. When your party has based its future on government power empowering those who are willing to support their election, then a President devoted to deregulation and limited government is the worst nightmare imaginable. Make that President an in-your-face fool willing to be braggadocios and who makes his responses to your challenges farcical, then his entire existence becomes an offense. This is the source of an echo chamber which has reverberated throughout the terrain of our social media. This has led to people defriending one another and even to break-ups of relationships and even marriages. Remarkably, nobody from BTC has been defriended that we are aware of, but please don’t take that as a challenge, we like all our friends no matter their political bend. So, the Democrats have any of a number of reasons to unite against President Trump from his smaller government plans, his Tweets being particularly unrestrained, and he is not a Democrat. For many Democrats, when it comes to President Trump, there is absolutely nothing to like. As far as many are concerned, Donald Trump is so full of hot air he could be a hot air balloon, or was that hot air buffoon.

President Trump has revealed the truth; in the United States, there are simply two actual teams, those who are part of the political system and the rest of the American people. Those who wield the political power are in their own little world where they control the lives of the rest of the population and the rest of the population is supposed to simply say thank you for caring for us. The rest of the population, the political class hope, are so busy working and getting through their busy lives that they will hopefully never wake and see that they have been played. Well, thanks to President Trump, many in the American Public now realize what has been happening. The collusion between many in the media, the entertainment and sports enterprises, academia and the political class have worked with other elitists to misrepresent much of what has been the reality coming from their inglorious alliance and how the people have been played for fools much to the amusement of these members of the preferred classes. The worst fear is close to coming to fruition, the people might be awakening and when they do, they might remain alert and use the one thing they have at their disposal, their votes. But there is a salvation for the elites, they control the levers of power and how those who run for office are chosen. Unless people who are honest and desire to take the responsibility for change into their own hands are willing to run for office, then the only candidates will be those who the political parties choose which mean more of the same. Nothing will really change until perhaps the parties themselves are replaced. President Washington warned against political parties believing they would be the end of the republic. How correct he may have been.
