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 that “the 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!
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.
