Is Donald Trump Now Donald Duck? – Jeff Nielson

by Jeff Nielson, Sprott Money:

The Donald: the Mouth that Roared. No one has ever talked bigger than Donald Trump. But the great danger in being a big-talking blowhard is that if you’re seen as not being able to deliver on the big talk, you quickly become a joke.

Arguably, Donald Trump is already a joke. And he is a joke in large part because the government of the United States is not elected by the people. It is chosen by a handful of oligarchs, the leaders of a banking crime syndicate known as “the One Bank” .

We see this in the rampant gerrymandering which takes place in the U.S. at both the state and federal level. In other nations, gerrymandering is seen as the most repugnant of political crimes. In the United States it is a way of life. Gerrymandering is a political crime with only one purpose: to fix the results of elections.

We see this in the corrupt inertia which exists in U.S. politics. Nationally, in any given election between 2/3 and 3/4 of all U.S. electoral districts are already decided before the first vote is cast. The incumbent for one party or the other has such a gigantic advantage that there is zero possibility of the incumbent being defeated. In only a small minority of U.S. electoral districts do the votes of Americans even count.

We see this in the corrupt campaign laws which allow large corporations (i.e. the oligarchs who control those corporations) to bestow unlimited “contributions” (bribes) upon the candidate whom they wish to own. All this dirty money then allows that candidate to buy victory through saturation advertising. But the deck is not stacked by campaign contributions alone.

We also see this corruption with media coverage of candidates at both the national and state level. In 2012; the Corporate media simply censored Ron Paul’s campaign for the Republican nomination. They did so on the grounds that they thought his views were “too extreme”.

Consider that. The Corporate media (i.e. the handful of companies that control everything Americans see and hear) decided on their own that Ron Paul would be effectively frozen out of the democratic process because they didn’t like him. Other commentators have alleged additional “dirty tricks” were used against Ron Paul by the party Establishment.

At the time, Ron Paul was near the top of the polling among Republican contenders. These gigantic media companies are also controlled by the One Bank. Yet these same media companies, these supposed paragons of virtue who refused to expose Americans to Ron Paul’s “crazy ideas” covered every stupid thing that Donald Trump said throughout the entire campaign.

What was the real reason why the oligarchs chose to censor Ron Paul and effectively remove him from the political process while they allowed Donald Trump to be elected? Donald Trump was (is) corruptible while Ron Paul is not.

Laughably, Donald Trump campaigned as an “independent candidate”. Then the moment he was elected he stuffed the U.S. government with more of the One Bank’s Goldman Sachs Stooges than any previous U.S. administration.

However, while Trump no longer considers himself to be independent (at least privately), he continues to labour under the delusion that he is the leader of the United States and certainly the leader of the Republican Party. He is neither. He is only the President of the United States. Trump needed to be taught that reality.

Obamacare.

Every Republican politician has declared his/her hatred for Obamacare: (supposedly) “socialized medicine”. There are two jokes here. First of all, many Republicans secretly support Obamacare – it took Republican votes to pass it in the first place. Secondly, Obamacare has absolutely nothing to do with “socialized medicine”.

Socialized medicine is a government-funded and government-operated healthcare system. Forcing all Americans to pay massive healthcare premiums to a handful of gigantic insurance companies that are also controlled by the One Bank is not socialized medicine.

Indeed, given what Obamacare actually represents (funneling gigantic sums of money into the vaults of gigantic corporations), Republicans should love Obamacare. It’s everything they represent. The One Bank loves Obamacare because it was created for the One Bank – by another one of its loyal servants, Barack Obama.

President Donald Trump thought that gutting Obamacare was going to be a slam-dunk. All Republicans “hate” Obamacare. All three branches of the government are controlled by Republicans. Swish!

Then Trump got schooled by his Masters.

The Donald’s greatly-Trumpeted healthcare bill was defeated because his own party wouldn’t support him. Enough of the One Bank’s lackeys in the Republican caucus defied Trump so that he suffered a humiliating defeat. Then (naturally) things got silly.

What was the excuse which some Republicans gave, supposed arch-conservatives within the Republican caucus, as to why they didn’t support their “leader”? The proposed legislation “didn’t go far enough.”

Hilarious. That’s not the American way, and it’s certainly not the Republican way.

What do Republicans do with any form of legislation they hate? They whittle away at it, year after year after year. Obvious examples are the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as any and every other form of regulation which impedes Big Business (the One Bank) even slightly.

These “arch-conservative” hypocrites voted against Trump because their Masters told them to do so. If it was truly a matter of principle (for politicians who have none) they would have supported Trump, claimed “victory” for what they could get today, and then immediately vowed to go farther in the next vote. That’s the Republican way.

These arch-conservative/ultra-hypocrites who joyfully serve their oligarch Masters have dubbed themselves “the Freedom Caucus”. Hilarious. Proving that he still had learned nothing, Trump responded to this silliness with silliness of his own .
