How the anti-Trump liberal capitalists beat their rivals and took back America with their Biden puppet

 
As we pointed out right after last November's US general election, the globalist faction of the US capital (primarily consisted by the liberal plutocracy) had the chance to counterattack against the capitalists around Trump through Biden's recent victory, in the ongoing capitalist civil war.
 
Yet, we didn't have so far the details of how the liberal capitalist faction managed to beat its rivals. 

Surprisingly enough, those details have been revealed by the liberal machine itself through a recent article on Time. Apart from the shocking revelations, what's even more shocking is the way that the liberal establishment perceives Democracy. In short, the article unravels the liberal way of thinking, which views the liberal status quo as the totally indisputable norm that has to be restored at any cost. Even if that means manipulation of the democratic processes themselves!
 
The first surprise comes from the following paragraph: 

A second odd thing happened amid Trump’s attempts to reverse the result: corporate America turned on him. Hundreds of major business leaders, many of whom had backed Trump’s candidacy and supported his policies, called on him to concede. To the President, something felt amiss. “It was all very, very strange,” Trump said on Dec. 2. “Within days after the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint the winner, even while many key states were still being counted.” In a way, Trump was right.
                                   
These few lines completely verify our analysis on the conditions shaped by a vicious capitalist civil war. The admission that corporate America turned on Trump as "Hundreds of major business leaders, many of whom had backed Trump's candidacy and supported his policies, called on him to concede.", fully verifies what we wrote in the beginning of this year:

                              We need to understand that this civil war between the capitalist factions does not come out of any substantially different ideological or political approach. Essentially, it's only a tough bargain. Capitalists just pick sides to negotiate terms and secure their position in the post-capitalist era, which already looks like a kind of 21st century corporate feudalism. 
 
Well, it seems that some Trump powerful backers picked the winner side when they realized that they are losing the game.
 
Also, the ascertainment that Trump attempted to reverse the result along with the admission that he was essentially right when he said that“Within days after the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint the winner, even while many key states were still being counted.”, proves that the capitalist factions have turned the American democracy from their private playground into their private battlefield where they try to solve their differences. Indeed, as we also wrote:

                             All these crises of the last two decades revealed more and more clearly this merciless war among the capitalists. As these have the real power with the big money and the big media, this war not only overshadows every effort for a real alternative against the capitalist system. It even brutally crushes every attempt for a democratic revival. The rampageous bulls of capitalism are fighting each other in an arena in which democracy has now turned into dust under their violent clatters. 

As we continue the reading, surprises keep coming like storm.

The next paragraph essentially reveals that the world of labor allied with the part of the oligarchy that fights Trump. And quite paradoxically, the author of the article labels this development as "conspiracy". Furthermore, the author openly admits that this conspiracy "curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs."(!!!):
 
There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans. The pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day. Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain–inspired by the summer’s massive, sometimes destructive racial-justice protests–in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s assault on democracy.
                     
This development fully verifies what we also wrote. That is: 
 
                              At the time when the liberal capitalists ran out of tricks (and social movements were pushing for real change in the US), Trump came to their rescue. Suddenly, the Obama fraud was almost forgotten and all the progressives had to align behind the liberal fraudsters in order to defeat the "creepy orange clown". After four years of anti-Trump liberal hysteria and a pandemic nightmare that also came right on time, the liberal capitalists managed to put another puppet in power. And they did it without the slightest retreat against their neoliberal order that almost wiped out the US working class all previous years.

Although the author claims that the whole process was meant to protect American democracy rather than lead to Trump's defeat, another shocking revelation comes on surface. The fact that, in essence, all this anti-Trump effort bypassed some constitutional procedures to achieve its goals. As we read further [emphasis added]:

The handshake between business and labor was just one component of a vast, cross-partisan campaign to protect the election–an extraordinary shadow effort dedicated not to winning the vote but to ensuring it would be free and fair, credible and uncorrupted. [...] Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction.

As you can see, the whole operation was also reinforced with an aggressive PR campaign and censorship of different views in social media. A censorship that the liberal machine now expands against many progressive, anti-establishment outlets of the real Left.
 

The last paragraph of the introduction in this article tells you all you need to know about how the liberal machine perceives Democracy. Although the article insists over and over again that this was an operation to save Democracy itself, at the same time it calls it a conspiracy by "a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information.
 
Well, how about the real motives of this powerful cabal?
 
It seems that in front of this emergency situation of "saving Democracy", it's not permitted someone to question the motives of this cabal, according to the liberal perception. And that's because in reality, it will naturally turn out that this whole drama is about the outcome of the capitalist civil war. It has nothing to do with "saving Democracy":
 
That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures.
 
It's rather funny that this paragraph also exposes the ultimate goal of this revelation. The phrase in the beginning "That's why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, ..." shows that the liberal establishment has used one of its most prestigious PR weapons (Time) to shape public opinion in advance.

That is, to shape the views of the American public prior to any potential "uncontrolled" leaks concerning this whole operation, in order to make Americans believe that it was solely carried out for the purpose of restoring American democracy. Well, it seems that its purpose was only to restore neoliberal order and in the process, even some democratic procedures had to be manipulated.

  1. Nothing to do with saving democracy. Everything to do with expanding the empire, as we saw Jozo the Clown's handlers immediately sending bombers to Norway to "send Russia a message about Russian Aggression™., that doesn't exist."

Proof Twitter censored anyone CIA & FBI told them to!

The Jimmy Dore Show   When Viktor Shokin, a former Prosecutor General of Ukraine and notable target of onetime Vice President Joe Biden, wrote a book about his experiences in office, there were powerful individuals within the U.S. Government who didn’t want people reading this book, or even becoming aware it existed.

January 21, 2010: The day corporate dictatorship destroyed the last remnants of US Democracy

globinfo freexchange     As we described many times in this blog, corporate power grew rapidly since the early 70s with the rise of neoliberalism and its subsequent establishment as the dominant culture, especially in the West.  In the motherland of neoliberalism, the United States, corporations essentially legalized corruption in politics during the 70s in order to capture the entire political system and put it under their complete control. As David Harvey describes in his book A Brief History of Neoliberalism :                          The supposedly ‘progressive’ campaign finance laws of 1971 in effect legalized the financial corruption of politics. A crucial set of Supreme Court decisions began in 1976 when it was first established that the right of a corporation to make unlimited money contributions to political parties and political action committees was protected under the First Amendment guaranteeing the rights of individuals (in this instance corporations) to freedom of speec

Democracy Now!   In Washington, D.C., human rights and free speech advocates gather today for the Belmarsh Tribunal, focused on the imprisonment of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Assange has been languishing for close to four years in the harsh Belmarsh prison in London while appealing extradition to the United States on espionage charges. If convicted, Assange could face up to 175 years in jail for publishing documents that exposed war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. Five major news organizations that once partnered with WikiLeaks recently called on the Biden administration to drop charges against Assange.    British MP and former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, who is in Washington, D.C., to participate in the Belmarsh Tribunal, speaks about Assange and freedom of the press. We also speaks about the state of leftism around the globe, from labor rights in the U.K. and Europe to the war in Ukraine, to political unrest in Brazil and Peru.

Julian Assange and the rapid decline of liberal Democracy

by system failure We are now in 2023, and after 1362 days, Julian Assange is still in prison. If you seek something to measure the decline of liberal Democracy in our days, the Julian Assange case will help you a lot. And it's most amazing that in the era of information overflow (with plenty of means available to transfer it almost instantly in every corner of the planet), there are still many people who are unaware of the Assange case.   The origins of this deterioration go back in 1968 when the Left made a disastrous compromise with the powers of the establishment. Since the early 70s and after Nixon's shock , the cultural domination of neoliberalism paved the way for the restriction of certain types of liberties in Western societies.  The 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 became the perfect opportunity for the establishment to abolish instantly a significant portion of the civil liberties that came out of the 1968 compromise. The liberal Democracy in the West suffered a heavy

China pushes de-dollarization with gold reserves, Argentina yuan currency swap deal

Advancing global de-dollarization, China’s central bank is boosting its gold reserves while signing currency swap deals in yuan with countries like Argentina, encouraging the use of renminbi instead of US dollars.   by Ben Norton  Part 4 - China uses currency swap lines to help debt-burdened countries, while advancing de-dollarization China began conducted currency swaps with Argentina back in 2009, under left-wing President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Deals have been repeatedly renewed since then. But the South American nation is not the only country that has worked out a system like this with the East Asian giant. In December, the Wall Street Journal reported that Beijing’s central bank is using an “ unusual channel ”: “ currency-swap lines to support governments that borrowed heavily from Chinese banks ”.
