That was too fast: Trump one step closer to secure interests of his billionaire class


Nearly a year ago, we wrote about the real "nature" of Donald Trump, according to our humble opinion. We have pointed that Trump's rhetoric of extreme cynicism has its roots back to the Thatcherian cynicism through which the neoliberal doctrine became the dominant culture in the West. Yet, the great contradiction here is that Donald Trump was promoted as an 'anti-establishment' candidate, while in reality, it appears to be only a reserve of the establishment, as has been pointed several times since then.

It has been mentioned back then thatthe eccentric billionaire, Donald Trump, is attacking on everyone, even on his internal Republican opponents, with words like "losers". Through an even more cynical manner, he attacks on the Mexican immigrants, saying that they are drug dealers and rapists. The "made in USA" hypocrisy is skyrocketing, as the businesses of CIA with the drug cartels all over Latin America is well known, as well as, the extreme exploitation of the immigrants by the US big capital, to which Trump belongs.”, concluding that “Americans are always pioneers. It has started with Mitt Romney and now it's Trump's turn. It's time for the "useless" politicians to step away, so that billionaires to come in the front line. Neoliberalism drops the final big leaf: Yes, we are the one percent who have exploited you and impoverished you, and we want to govern so that to make sure that you will never rise up ...

Well, guess who went to meet Trump yesterday. That's right, Mitt Romney! What an "evil" coincidence!

From japantoday:

President-elect Donald Trump and Mitt Romney met Saturday at the billionaire’s golf club in New Jersey, both emerging with smiles and a public handshake but no word on what, if any, role the 2012 GOP hopeful might play in the new administration.

Trump flashed a thumbs-up said the sit down “went great.” Romney said the two had a “far reaching conversation with regards to the various theaters in the world where there are interests of the United States of real significance.

The meeting alone was notable after the crackling rancor between the men all year. Romney assailed Trump in a stinging speech in March, calling him a “con man” and a “phony.” Trump responded by calling Romney a “loser” who “choked like a dog” during the 2012 election and let President Barack Obama win.

Well, it looks like the two multi-millionaire buddies gave a great performance before the election, supposedly attacking each other! Apparently, they have managed to erase their differences really fast!

In another, recent article, it has been mentioned that Donald Trump “played well his role as an anti-establishment candidate, but in reality, he is only a reserve of the establishment. What do you think he would do? Protect the interests of the poor working people or the interests of his billionaire class? Can you guess? It's not that hard. At least let's hope that he will resist against starting a war with Russia as the US deep state (and Hillary of course) wants.

Well, even the avoidance of an open conflict with Russia becomes more and more doubtful under Trump presidency. Pay attention to the new signals sent by Romney. He said that he had with Trump a “far reaching conversation with regards to the various theaters in the world where there are interests of the United States of real significance.

According to all recent developments, including the first who have been picked by Trump to serve in key positions, we conclude, unfortunatelly, that we were right. Of course, the possibility to pardon the Whistleblowers sounds like a joke. What is rather certain, is that Trump will mark a transition into a neofeudalism, where the cruel police state will be further reinforced on the pretext of terrorism, in order to protect the super-rich from "unexpected" resistance from the impoverished masses.

So, one could ask: should Americans have voted Hillary? The answer is: not at all. The dangerous, corrupted, warmongering, neoliberal, pro-neocon Hillary Clinton was not an option. But the American voters had at least two chances to change the course of history, bringing an unprecedented political earthquake.

The first was with Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primaries. If millions of Americans had massively rejected Hillary from the start, voting for Bernie, nothing could stop him. Not even DNC's dirty games. But they could also do the same thing later with Jill Stein and the Greens. Leaving behind the bipartisan dictatorship for good.

Let's hope that Donald Trump will show his real face soon, so that the US citizens to prepare for a real political revolution in 2020 that will manage to beat this dark age that is about to come. But for such a purpose, it is necessary all the real progressive forces to unite outside the bipartisan authoritarianism, to create the suitable conditions for this mass movement that is about to rise.

  1. The two options you suggest to trump and clinton, one a spineless pro-zionist fraud without a shread of morality in his entire being. The other a sideshow whose agenda never touched upon isdues of greater importance. Not to mention lacking the charisma of an aardvark. Amerika is a decaying corpse whose citizenry for the most part are interested in nothing that will change society for the better. I consistantly see authors like yourself bemoan the plight of the working and middle classes. I suggest you take a break from tapping upon your keyboard and get out among the many middle class folks who currently pack mall and retail parking lots, retail stores and restaurants. Lots chock full of foreign luxary vehicles, SUV's of every sort and those decked out pick-ups that will never be used to transport tools and materials. Children with the latest mobile phones, designer clothing, and $400 bats for youth baseball. Life in good ole suburbia.
    Things for the middle classes have not become bad enough to even make them consider reality. Bread and circuses work for

  3. Socialism brings poverty, misery, and chaos. Every single time.

    Capitalism and true liberalism brings prosperity, as Thatcher did.

  4. Let's hope he keeps the enemy close enough to report to him so he can question every move. If so, very clever move by Donald Trump, because out of sight, out of mind whilst dealing with other problems and thus lots of danger ahead.

Trump's "brigades" are ready to start a civil war in case he loses November's election

Signs show an extremely explosive situation now in the America of Donald Trump. 
Starting with the murder of George Floyd, we witness almost in daily basis some very disturbing incidents, which unveil a deeply divided society that was hiding for decades behind the "American dream" facade. As the facade now rapidly collapses, due to a major financial crisis and a pandemic, in less than fifteen years, the reality looks terrifying.
In a latest incident, Common Dreamsreported that members of a far right militia group were arrested Monday evening in Albuquerque after a standoff at a statue of a notoriously brutal conquistador in the New Mexico city turned violent with a demonstrator advocating for the removal of the monument shot and sent to the hospital.
As dusk fell, demonstrators began attempting to pull the monument down from its pedestal on the Albuquerque Museum grounds. At that point, members of the New Mexico Civil Guard militia group moved in, attack…

Αντίο δημόσια, δωρεάν παιδεία ...

Μετά τα σχέδια για ιδιωτικοποίηση του νερού, το Μητσοτακικό καθεστώς ετοιμάζεται να ισοπεδώσει με το νεοφιλελεύθερο "οδοστρωτήρα" και τη δημόσια παιδεία.
Από τη χθεσινή ομιλία Κεραμέως στη βουλή, το μόνο που χρειάζεται να κρατήσετε είναι η εξής φράση:
                        Εμείς, λοιπόν, κάνουμε πράξη τη δέσμευσή μας, για πανεπιστήμια πιο ελεύθερα και αυτόνομα. Για πανεπιστήμια, τα οποία μπορούν να ρυθμίζουν τα του οίκου τους.

Όταν ακούτε έννοιες όπως "ελευθερία", "αυτονομία" και "αυτορρύθμιση", να βγαίνουν από στόματα φανατικών νεοφιλελεύθερων, όπως των στελεχών της κυβέρνησης Μητσοτάκη, να ετοιμάζεστε για ιδιωτικοποιήσεις, ξεπουλήματα και όλες τις επακόλουθες συμφορές. 
Πίσω από τα ωραία λόγια της Κεραμέως, κρύβονται οι αληθινές προθέσεις του καθεστώτος και για τον τομέα της παιδείας. Δηλαδή, σταδιακή ιδιωτικοποίηση των δημόσιων πανεπιστημίων και τελειωτικό χτύπημα στη δημόσια, δωρεάν παιδεία.

Exclusive images from inside British court expose Assange’s un-democratic treatment, physical deterioration

Photographs surreptitiously taken inside a British courtroom and provided to The Grayzone show a visibly disoriented Julian Assange confined to a glass cage and unable to communicate with his lawyers.

Part 4 - Assange’s hearing postponed, his isolation extended
The Belmarsh supermax prison where Assange has been held is regarded as the UK’s version of the US facility at Guantanamo. Aside from Assange, the jail is home to mafia henchmen, al-Qaeda members, and neo-fascist enforcers like Tommy Robinson. Around 20 percent of prisoners in Belmarsh are murderers, and two-thirds have committed a violent crime.
117 licensed medical professionals from around the world have written to the British and Australian governments to condemn “the torture of Assange,” “the denial of his fundamental right to appropriate health care,the climate of fear surrounding the provision of health care to him” and “the violations of his right to doctor–patient confidentiality.

Η κυβέρνηση Μητσοτάκη ετοιμάζει το μεγάλο ξεπούλημα του νερού

Ήταν θέμα χρόνου. Η ιδιωτικοποίηση του νερού δεν θα μπορούσε να ξεφύγει από τα νύχια των νεοφιλελεύθερων αρπακτικών της κυβέρνησης Μητσοτάκη, η οποία φαίνεται να έχει ξεκινήσει τις υπόγειες διαδικασίες για ακόμα ένα μεγάλο ξεπούλημα στους ιδιώτες. Και μάλιστα, το ξεπούλημα του πολυτιμότερου αγαθού που θα έπρεπε να είναι ελεύθερο και δημόσιο.
Όπως αναφέρεται σε ρεπορτάζ του tvxs.gr:

Την ιδιωτικοποίηση μέσω σύμπραξης δημοσίου και ιδιωτικού δικαίου (ΣΔΙΤ) όλου του εξωτερικού υδροδοτικού συστήματος της Αττικής φαίνεται πως μεθοδευει η κυβέρνηση, προκαλώντας έντονες αντιδράσεις εκ μέρους των εργαζομένων της ΕΥΔΑΠ κι όχι μόνο.

Pentagon war game includes scenario for military response to domestic Gen Z rebellion

by Nick Turse
In the face of protests composed largely of young people, the presence of America’s military on the streets of major cities has been a controversial development. But this isn’t the first time that Generation Z — those born after 1996 — has popped up on the Pentagon’s radar.
Documents obtained by The Intercept via the Freedom of Information Act reveal that a Pentagon war game, called the 2018 Joint Land, Air and Sea Strategic Special Program, or JLASS, offered a scenario in which members of Generation Z, driven by malaise and discontent, launch a “Zbellion” in America in the mid-2020s.
The Zbellion plot was a small part of JLASS 2018, which also featured scenarios involving Islamist militants in Africa, anti-capitalist extremists, and ISIS successors. The war game was conducted by students and faculty from the U.S. military’s war colleges, the training grounds for prospective generals and admirals. While it is explicitly not a national intelligence estimate, the war game, …

Σκάνδαλο Novartis: Λοβέρδος, Πατούλης, Στουρνάρας στο μικροσκόπιο του FBI από το 2017

Σε "αυτοχειρία" εξελίσσεται η επιλογή του Ιωάννη Αγγελή να διαβιβάσει στη Βουλή αναφορές του FBI για την υπόθεση Νovartis, από το υλικό που έχει υπεξαιρέσει από το γραφείο της Εισαγγελέως Διαφθοράς Ελένης Τουλουπάκη. 
Τα εγγραφα των αμερικανικών αρχών, που κατατέθηκαν από τον Αντιεισαγγελέα του Αρείου Πάγου την Τετάρτη, διέρρευσαν στο  τύπο και  πιστοποιούν την ουσία του σκανδάλου Novartis, δηλαδή το συστηματικό χρηματισμό γιατρών και πολιτικών προσώπων και τις μεθόδους με τις οποίες η Novartis αναλάμβανε να αυξήσει τις τιμές και τα έσοδα από συγκεκριμένα projects σκευασμάτων όπως το Lucentis, το Exactly ή το Ηarvard Project. 
Τα έγγραφα δείχνουν ακριβώς τη διαδικασία εξαγοράς γιατρών καθώς και τις μεθόδους που χρησιμοποιούσαν με τους κυβερνητικούς αξιωματούχους αλλά περιγράφει με λεπτομέρειες και τον τρόπο με τον οποίο διάφορες εταιρίες επικοινωνίας και ΜΜΕ αναλάμβαναν να "ξεπλένουν" μαύρο χρήμα μέσω εικονικών τιμολογήσεων, όπως το γκρουπ του Μαυρίκου, του Βουλκί…

New court files expose Sheldon Adelson’s security team in US spy operation against Julian Assange

Part 9 - Spying, stealing diapers, and burglary plans
Stefania Maurizi, an Italian journalist who visited Assange regularly at the embassy in London, remembered relaxed encounters with minimal security and friendly interactions with embassy staff for the first five years of the Wikileaks founder’s stay. It was in December 2017 that everything changed.
During a visit to interview Assange that month, the Spanish security guards from UC Global demanded Maurizi hand over her backpack and all belongings inside for the first time. She protested the new and seemingly arbitrary procedure, but to no avail. 

Hong Kong’s ‘pro-democracy’ movement allies with far-right US politicians that seek to crush Black Lives Matter

As a Hong Kong protest leader promotes far-right condemnations of US anti-racism demonstrations and activists shut down a Black Lives Matter rally in the city, Hong Kong organizers forge close ties with hardline Republicans in Washington.

There are some within Hong Kong’s “pro-democracy” movement who have issued statements expressing support for the protests taking place in the US and the Black Lives Matter movement, arguing that both movements are engaged in a shared struggle against oppression and police brutality. 
Joshua Wong, a poster-boy for the Hong Kong protests, along with Nathan Law and other leading members of his political party, Demosistō, have stated that they stand with Black Lives Matter. “Many of you have asked me about the ongoing U.S. protests” wrote Wong in a June 2 tweet. “As a human-rights activist, I stand firmly on the side of the #BlackLivesMat…

The US imperialist machine calls for a G-7 expansion to tackle China's 5G penetration in its Western sphere of influence

globinfo freexchange

The US imperialist machine openly calls Western allies (and particularly the UK), to sabotage China's economic and technological penetration in its Western sphere of influence, through a Foreign Policyarticle.

Although the article adopts Trump-style anti-Chinese propaganda, it is clear that the US imperialists have difficulties to accept Trump's inconvenient proposal regarding the expansion of G-7, because it includes "hostile" Russia.

Instead, they think that London's proposal regarding the expansion of G-7 (into D-10), is the most appropriate.

Although according to the article, "The D-10 is not an anti-China alliance.", its hawkish style is more than evident, as can be depicted with that "United Kingdom's D-10 is the right size and shape ... covering only the Cold War West.", for a start.

Furthermore, according to the article, the UK appears to be the most suitable, among the US allies, to lead the race against China…
