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.

It has started: Spain decides permanent UBI for its citizens

globinfo freexchange
Spain appears to be the first country that will implement a permanent form of Universal Basic Income for its citizens. As the Independentreported: [emphasis added]
Spain’s cabinet has approved the creation of a national minimum income, according to a government spokesperson.

Deputy Prime Minister Pablo Iglesias told a news conference on Friday the creation of a minimum income worth €462 (£416.92) a month will target some 850,000 households or 2.5 million people.

The government would pay the monthly stipend and top up existing revenue for people earning less so that they receive at least that minimum amount every month, he said.

The minimum income would increase with the number of family members, up to a maximum of €1,015 (£916.30) each month. The programme would cost the government about €3 billion a year.

Mr Iglesias said: “Today is a historic day for our democracy. Today this government is showing that its political choice is social justice and that it takes the…

It has started: Greece becomes the blueprint for the 21st century corporate feudalism

globinfo freexchange
Greece has just become the blueprint for the 21st century corporate feudalism through a preposterous environmental bill passed on Tuesday.
Just when the neoliberal government lifted most of the restriction measures that were imposed to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, it rushed to pass the bill through unconstitutional actions. These have been strongly condemned by the main opposition party, SYRIZA.
As reported by the Associated Press:
Greek lawmakers approved a controversial environmental bill Tuesday that the opposition and environmental groups slammed for opening the door to exploratory oil and gas drilling in protected areas.

[...]

On the eve of the vote, Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Fund said they had collected 30,000 signatures in an online petition against the legislation, which they say will remove vital safeguards for environmental protection.

Beyond the drilling, this legislation is deeply problematic in many areas, as has already been estab…

Τίποτα δεν σταματάει το νεοφιλελεύθερο "οδοστρωτήρα" τους ...

Αφού τελείωσαν τα χειροκροτήματα για τους γιατρούς του Εθνικού Συστήματος Υγείας, ο Μητσοτάκης επέστρεψε στην "κανονικότητα" της αποστολής του, που, με λίγα λόγια, είναι η ιδιωτικοποίηση και το ξεπούλημα των πάντων. Έτσι, μετά το διάλειμμα λόγω πανδημίας, φανέρωσε και πάλι το πόσο αδημονεί να οδηγήσει το Εθνικό Σύστημα Υγείας στο δρόμο της ιδιωτικοποίησης.
Όπως αναφέρει το tvxs.gr:
                         Δεν πρόλαβαν να περάσουν λίγες μέρες από την άρση του Lockdown και την απομάκρυνση, σε πρώτη φάση, του σοβαρού υγειονομικού κινδύνου της πανδημίας, και ο Κυριάκος Μητσοτάκης επανέφερε τα σχέδια για ιδιωτικοποίηση του ΕΣΥ, εγκαταλείποντας τα «χειροκροτήματα» και τις αναφορές στους «ήρωες» υγειονομικούς και στη σημασία του δημόσιου συστήματος υγείας. Παρά το «σκληρό μάθημα» που έδωσε η πανδημία στους νεοφιλεύθερους λάτρεις της «αγοράς», φαίνεται πως η κυβέρνηση δεν εγκατέλειψε ποτέ τους αρχικούς σχεδιασμούς της, παρά τον τρόπο που το δημόσιο σύστημα υγεία…

Part 2 - Pompeo outlines the attack on Assange
Pompeo’s first public speech as CIA Director, hosted at the Washington DC-based Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank on April 13, 2017, was one of the most paranoid and resentful addresses ever delivered by an agency chief.
The former Republican congressman from Kansas opened his speech with an extended tirade against the “Philip Agees in the world,” referring to the CIA whistleblower who handed over thousands of classified documents to leftist publishers that revealed shocking details of illegal US regime change and assassination …

The neoliberal machine mocks Millennials and Gen Xers through a documentary about Bernie's awful mistreatment by the corporate media!

globinfo freexchange
Now that the "Bernie Sanders" threat for the establishment has been neutralized (for a second time), the neoliberal machine is free to pretend that it cares about the truth.
Kyle Kulinski speaks about a new documentary by VICE about the media bias against Bernie Sanders. Although the doc trailer is pretty impressive, Kulinski starts with a pretty remarkable argument he saw on Twitter:
                         Credit to VICE. Thank you for this documentary. Curious how it released after Bernie dropped out. 

Kulinski finds that the mainstream media still have enough power to neutralize an undesirable candidate, as they did with Bernie, despite the fact that most of the people don't trust them. He also explains the demographics of this year's race for the leadership of the Democratic party.

As he supports, Millennials and Gen Xers overwhelmingly supported Bernie Sanders against the Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation (in which Bernie actually be…

Δεν τους βγαίνει με τίποτα η "στρατηγική ήττα" ...

globinfo freexchange
Τα πράγματα φαίνεται να εξελίσσονται σχεδόν όπως τα είχαμε προβλέψει.
Όπως είχαμε επισημάνει ήδη από τα μέσα Απριλίου, στο επόμενο διάστημα αναμένεται να δούμε νέες, αλλεπάλληλες "φουσκωμένες" δημοσκοπήσεις από την φιλοκυβερνητική μηχανή προπαγάνδας, ώστε να προετοιμαστεί ψυχολογικά το κοινό για το επικείμενο αποτέλεσμα των εθνικών εκλογών.
Στις δημοσκοπήσεις αυτές θα βλέπουμε ενδεχομένως την ψαλίδα μεταξύ ΝΔ και ΣΥΡΙΖΑ συνεχώς να μεγαλώνει, με μια ταυτόχρονη πτώση του ποσοστού του κόμματος της αξιωματικής αντιπολίτευσης, σε βαθμό που να δικαιολογεί την στρατηγική του ήττα.  
Ωστόσο, το 20,3% του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, δεν συνιστά στρατηγική ήττα στο βαθμό που επιθυμεί το καθεστώς και η ντόπια ολιγαρχία, εν όψει μάλιστα και απλής αναλογικής. Οπότε θα πρέπει να αναμένουμε στο αμέσως επόμενο διάστημα ένα νέο βομβαρδισμό από δημοσκοπήσεις στις οποίες το ποσοστό του κόμματος της αξιωματικής αντιπολίτευσης θα "ροκανίζεται" σταδιακά, έτσι ώστε να δημιουργηθεί το κ…

Το κίνημα Slow News: η απάντηση στα Fake News?

globinfo freexchange
Στον θαυμαστό καινούργιο κόσμο, ο αβάσταχτος όγκος πληροφοριών που καταναλώνουμε καθημερινά έχει γεννήσει ένα δυστοπικό παράδοξο: την ίδια στιγμή, αμφισβητούμε και πιστεύουμε τα πάντα. Το μυαλό μας έχει βυθιστεί σε μια δίνη από tweets, αναρτήσεις, βίντεο, hoaxes και fake news.
Τα τελευταία χρόνια, σε διάφορα μέρη του πλανήτη, νησίδες αντίστασης έρχονται στην επιφάνεια. Ολιγομελείς ομάδες ανεξάρτητων δημοσιογράφων αγωνίζονται να οικοδομήσουν ένα εναλλακτικό μοντέλο πληροφόρησης, το οποίο βασίζεται σε μια εξαιρετικά απλή αρχή: πρέπει να κόψουμε ταχύτητα. Ένα μαχητικό ντοκιμαντέρ που έχει βαλθεί να αποδείξει ότι η δημοσιογραφία παραμένει ο βασικός πυλώνας της δημοκρατίας.

Part 3 - Journey to “the dark side”
On February 26, 2017, Wikileaks announced the forthcoming release of a major tranche of CIA files revealing details of the agency’s hacking and electronic surveillance tools. One such spying application called “Marble” allowed agency spies to implant code that obfuscated their identity on computers they had hacked. Other files contained evidence of programs that allowed hackers to break into encrypted messaging applications like Signal and Telegram, and to turn Samsung smart TVs into listening devices. 
Two days after Wikileaks’ initial announcement, on February …
