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.

The other epidemic killing Americans

People are dying at record rates from opioid overdoses, and harm reduction advocates are asking the Biden administration to overhaul how it deals with the crisis.   by Michelle ChenTwitt  Part 2 - Turning a Corner Though the pandemic has aggravated the opioid overdose epidemic, the Biden administration has signaled a shift in Washington’s approach to the crisis. The massive American Rescue Plan stimulus bill includes a tranche of $30 million dedicated to harm reduction services. That’s a tiny fraction of the $7.6 billion the federal government spent on the opioid overdose crisis in fiscal year 2019. But Beth Connolly, project director of the Substance Use Prevention and Treatment Initiative at Pew Charitable Trusts, said that as the first explicitly targeted federal funding for harm reduction, “ it really is a message and a step in the right direction. ”  The harm reduction provision in the relief package could boost federal support for syringe service programs (SSPs), which provide cl

The billionaire class is a threat to Democracy

Since the pandemic began, America’s billionaires have seen their wealth skyrocket to an amount almost equal to a fifth of US GDP. This concentration of wealth is morally unacceptable — but it also represents a mortal threat to democracy.  by Luke Savage  It’s by now widely understood that the past twelve months have been a tale of two very different pandemics. Amid the countless stories of human misery buried in monthly unemployment figures, reports of widespread hunger, and tragic (though avoidable) deaths of frontline workers, COVID-19 has been a veritable bonanza for the tiny few at the commanding heights of the hyper-financialized global economy. Recent numbers published by the Financial Times underscore just how dramatic these gains have really been:                               Over the past two decades, as the global population of billionaires rose more than fivefold and the largest fortunes rocketed past $100bn . . . The pandemic has reinforced this trend. As the virus spread

As the Left wins big in Chile, neoliberalism is about to suffer another decisive blow

globinfo freexchange   Sepúlveda Allende, a grandson of Chile’s legendary socialist President Salvador Allende, spoke with Ben Norton about the historic May 15/16 elections in which left-wing and independent candidates won two-thirds of the seats for a convention to rewrite the constitution, which dates back to the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.   Allende described the political situation in Chile after the fall of Pinochet's brutal regime. This is an interesting period because it  proves that what happened in the entire West, happened in Chile too.  As he pointed out: When the dictatorship ended, there was a kind of alliance made between the parties that historically had represented certain parts of the old left, like the Socialist Party of Allende. Another that was newly formed in that moment, which had not existed before the coup, called the Party for Democracy, which had (ex-President) Ricardo Lagos, and had a lot of power in that moment. There is also the C

The Pentagon seriously contemplated nuking China in 1958

Newly leaked documents show that US officials in 1958 cavalierly planned a nuclear strike on China over a handful of disputed islands. As Washington once more stokes tensions with China, it’s a reminder of the callous recklessness at the heart of US foreign policy.   by Branko Marcetic  Part 2 - Destruction for Dignity The plan, approved by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and developed before the 1958 Taiwan Strait Crisis began, envisaged only two phases in the response to a Chinese attack: patrol and reconnaissance, followed by the defeat of Chinese forces, who would be “ countered by an American attack with atomic weapons against the Chinese mainland. ” The nuclear attacks would begin against Chinese air bases before moving incrementally up into the Chinese mainland as far north as Shanghai, as was discussed at one point. As the study took care to point out, the plan didn’t include any intermediate step involving conventional weapons: “ the phase immediately following patrol and reconnaiss

From RussiaGate to UkraineGate: Route to Apocalypse

Corruption and supposed efforts to reduce it have become a neoconservative weapon of choice with which to operate the controls on the funding sluice gates to acolytes of the U.S.-led international neoconservative empire.   by Oliver Boyd-Barrett   Part 5 - Poroshenko and Zelensky   Ukraine’s two presidents since the 2014 coup, Petro Poroshenko (2014 to 2019) and Volodymyr Zelensky (2019 to the present), each started with strong support that quickly waned. The country has scarcely improved. Gross National Product peaked in December 2013; unemployment has increased from 7% to over 10%; Ukraine remains the second poorest country in Europe per capita. Corruption, the supposed key force behind popular support for the elections of both Poroshenko and Zelensky, continues to be rampant. Kiev’s policies of stand-off with Russia have been dramatically counter-productive and have deprived Ukraine of Crimea and control of major industrial areas of the Donbass. Some 14,000 lives have been taken, 1.

Killing Gaza: Documentary by Dan Cohen & Max Blumenthal shows life under Israel's bombs and siege

The Grayzone   In the feature-length documentary film "Killing Gaza," journalists Dan Cohen and Max Blumenthal documented Israel’s 2014 war on Gaza.  Yet this film is much more than a documentary about Palestinian resilience and suffering. It is a chilling visual document of war crimes committed by the Israeli military, featuring direct testimony and evidence from the survivors.

Illiberal Conservatism Comes to Greece

Under cover of the pandemic, Greece’s right-wing government has passed a slew of new measures to benefit the wealthy at the expense of workers, while massively expanding police powers. On the back of a decade of austerity, the latest laws are set to transform the country into a client state and playground for foreign tourists.   by Matthaios Tsimitakis/Mihalis Panayiotakis    Part 3 - Losing Control For more than six months now, practically all of Greece has been under strict lockdown and under curfew. Despite this, a deadly second wave mostly affecting the country’s north hit in the winter, and a third wave is now ravaging Athens, home to almost half the Greek population. Vaccination numbers remain relatively low due to the disastrous handling of vaccine procurement deals by the EU. Even now, the pandemic’s intensity shows no signs of abating. But even with the lockdowns — which offer diminishing returns and feed economic and psychological anguish — the health system remains on the ed
