The usual election experts I check weren’t saying the election was stolen right away… Bev Harris I understand thinks Hillary tried to rig it, but it wasn’t close enough so it would have been too obvious I think something along those lines… But then I came across the post on Mark Crispin Miller’s blog, Kevin Barrett mentioned it on his show. I had checked Palast before — he had some stuff on Ohio but not the whole thing, he is now saying it was stolen. Aangirfan’s posts are by no means authoritative I think he was the first that I saw to suggest it was stolen. He’s written a lengthy post on it now. I wondered that day of how Trump could win with only the Baby Boom Generation and white males. Women, Hispanics, blacks, Asians, college-educated whites, Millennials and Gen X were all against him!
I think they are saying Trump won whites with a college degree, I was reading prior to the election that they were against him. So then he had white males, the Baby Boom Generation and college-educated whites. I haven’t been able to find out how Gen X actually voted, I’d read the same kind of thing about them prior to the election as college-educated whites.
Lee Camp has done an episode on RT on the election:
My take on Trump is that he’s a wild card he will be between Eisenhower and Mussolini. Eisenhower would be the best case scenario of course, and Mussolini the worst one. Not that I plan on voting for him; in fact, I’m not even sure that’s he’s ever told a truth! Or ever understands much of what he’s talking about for that matter (David Cay Johnston who’s followed him for a long time says that when you dig down on him he really knows nothing).
I plan to vote third party as I always do, I also didn’t expect Obama would bring any change — and didn’t vote for him. I personally take the view that my vote has to be earned (although it seems to me at this point we really have a system of paying for politicians campaigns, Trump is not self-financing just another of his multitude of lies that he spins daily, so voting is kind of beside the point)… I’ve been voting in presidential elections for quite a bit of time now, and not once has a Democrat or Republican been able to earn my vote.
Trump could have potentially earned my vote on three issues: trade, Israel-Palestine and the Stasi state. He’s not serious about tariffs, he’s cast aside any movement on how we deal with Israel and their illegal occupation of Palestinian lands, and he’s never acted as if the Stasi state is an issue at all. Indeed, it actually sounds as if it (the Stasi state) will be even more totalitarian/snooping under Drumpf!
I also care about taxes and foreign policy in general quite a bit. His tax proposals have been standard Republican fare, and there was some talk of a Ron Paul-style non-interventionist foreign policy regarding Trump it seemed for a time. From Trump’s statements though IMHO it doesn’t sound to me like this is what he’ll pursue at all. As early on the hopes of many folks were tacked on to Trump my assessments of the statements that he’s made over the course of his campaign is that he’s not a believer in this kind of a approach (non-interventionist) at all.
Lastly, I’ve even heard one prominent Trump supporter, James Fetzer, say on his show that he thinks Trump will have some kind revelation in office and magically come to the understanding that Medicare-for-all would be the best health care option for this nation. There’s zero evidence of this, it seems Trump has been actually trying to ingratiate himself at least somewhat with the Rethug establishment, Medicare-for-all is a non-starter with all of these folks, indeed, it’s something they’ve spent their lives being strident opponents of — a quest of their cast iron souls, lol, and how very Christian of them!
I wonder if there’s something going on with Republican Mormons and Trump. Perhaps it’s too early, but two of the most prominent Republicans for Never Trump seem to be Glenn Beck and Mitt Romney. Don’t know, but maybe Hillary this time around will be like the LDS candidate? Haha. (And moreover, Mormon Harry Reid was instrumental in delivering Nevada for Hillary Clinton too.)
Mike Lee the Mormon Utah senator, who’d like to eviscerate the federal ban on child labor (I would think he’d be simpatico/a kindred spirit of Trump’s), has already been quoted as saying Trump “scares him to death”. Don’t know if he’s come out “officially” for Never Trump. Interestingly, Trump has put Mike Lee’s brother on a short list of people that he might name to the Supreme Court though.
I don’t think Trump is alternative at all. Groveling to Israel, fearmongering Iran, doubling down on the Stasi state, it sounds like he’ll torture more than the Cheney regime, and continue on with the concentration camp in Guantanamo Bay. Just to name a few ways that he’s establishment. He’s surrounding himself with “Nixonmen” a massive red flag to say least. His current campaign manager was the key figure in something called the torturers’ lobby one of his “prized clients” was none other than Jonas Savimbi. The tariff thing is just a bargaining chip to be put on table as part of some negotiating ploy… For a real protective tariff it doesn’t need to be anywhere near 35%. The Tax Wall Street Party has a much more realistic proposal of 15%. I don’t know if he’ll even remember who Chris Christie was if and when he becomes president, but his name was bandied about in the mainstream press as a potential Trump AG. Christie will do his best to roll back the advancements that legal pot has made in many states if he’s installed as “our” attorney general.
I’m collecting people in the alternative media who have stood up to Trump — due to disappointment with those who have not. I know Kevin Barrett, Webster Tarpley, Meria Heller, and radio host Richie Allen are amongst the folks of some renown who have done just that! Cynthia McKinney may have changed her views the last I heard her on the Richie Allen Show she said Trump is an insider — despite what he says or people might think, but she didn’t make any criticisms of him on when she appeared on Alex Jones last week… I heard an interview with Daniel Estulin recently, and he didn’t sound like he’s really been “turned on” so to speak by anything said or done by the so-called “Donald” Trump.
Dr. McKinney said on Alex Jones that she was disappointed in black voters going for Hillary. But James Fetzer had a gentlemen on his show (The Real Deal) who sounded as if he’s been following US elections extremely closely for a long time, and he questioned whether or not black people have really been voting against Bernie as it’s been reported in the MSM. Fetzer seemed to think that black voters are probably voting as reported… Fetzer’s said he’s doing a lot of election stuff on his show on the Rense Network. Fetzer has even another radio show that he does on his own (after False Flag News with Kevin Barrett kicked him off) — three in total, haha. I can’t even hear every episode of the Real Deal so I haven’t checked out those other shows at all.
This was the show with Jim Condit Jr. anyway, who is the election analyst/observer that I mentioned.
I’m sure that Hillary, her people and the Democratic and the Wall Street establishment perhaps more importantly, know the old maxim that, “Republicans fall in line and Democrats fall in love.” It was Obama who spoiled her coronation last time. History says that someone will challenge her, and actually moreover probably even beat her this time, once again. They must have a bag of dirty tricks then, one would most assuredly have to assume “at the ready”. And so, the kind of sordid stuff that they must have prepared for — any and every potential Hillary opponent — must be truly diabolical, in fact!
