UNHEEDED WARNINGS ABOUT GROWING PLUTOCRACY IN AMERICA

“Plutocracy is alive and well in America,” (Truth in Media, Nov 1993)

AND IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE IF WE DO NOTHING

Nearly a quarter century ago, I used for the first time the term “plutocracy” to describe the system we have here in America.

What is plutocracy?

The rule of a few over the many. Or as Wikipedia puts it, “it is a form of oligarchy and defines a society ruled or controlled by the small minority of the wealthiest citizens.”

Four years later, I repeated the warning that the oligarchs are destroying the middle class and creating a new social order consisting only of have’s and have not’s:

Nowhere is this (class difference) more pronounced than in the U.S. This is where the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and the Great American Divide between the relative ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ has been growing wider and deeper in the last 30 years.”

That’s what this writer said over 20 years ago – in his March 9, 1997 WASHINGTON TIMES column, titled “Plutocrats of the New World Orderhttp://www.truthinmedia.org/Columns/Plutocrats%20of%20NWO.html

… and again about a year later…

The Great American Divide Widens –

IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE: UNHEEDED WARNINGS ABOUT PLUTOCRACY IN AMERICA

So what have we done about it since these warnings were published.

In a word – NOTHING. Apathy and indifference – have been trademark of American voters and citizens.

So no wonder every year we are becoming a little more enslaved by the plutocratic oligarchs. And in some years, such as right now, they tighten the nooses around our necks even more.

Check out this article in the Guardian’s interview with Bernie Sanders:

UPCOMING TAX CUTS ARE BARELY DISGUISED REWARD FOR BILLIONAIRE DONORS – https://goo.gl/Nn2aQZ

The Vermont senator tells the Guardian why the tax bill – which could become law next week – is the result of 40 years’ scheming by the Kochs and others

THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK

ALTZAR: As you read this Guardian article, it is important to be reminded that it is a left-wing “liberal” newspaper which had steadfastly supported Hillary Clinton in 2016.

It is also important to be reminded that Bernie Sanders, who is now casting stones at the Republicans, seems to have forgotten that he also ended up supporting last year that Queen of Greed – Hillary Clinton – who had raised records amount of money from the Wall Street and other international billionaires. As had her predecessor – Obama.

So as this writer has been saying for decades, both Democrats and the Republicans are working for the same rich oligarchs and AGAINST the interests of the American people.

Back to the definition of PLUTOCRACY.

But since we, the American people, keep voting our slave masters in election-after-election, all these warnings notwithstanding, we can only blame ourselves for the consequences.

From Feb 24, 2016 – IS TRUMP A TROJAN HORSE?

NEW WORLD ORDER CREED FITS TRUMP TO A TEE

The New World Order Creed fits Trump to a tee.

Here’s what I wrote on the topic of New World Order “religion” in my Washington Times column “CHRISTIANITY UNDER SIEGE, TOWARD – A ONE WORLD RELIGION” – Jan 1998 – http://www.truthinmedia.org/Columns/christianity_under_siege.html:

Their creed is ‘I believe in nothing!’ Their crest: The Almighty Dollar. Their object of worship: The Golden Calf. Their holy shrine: Wall Street. Their holy water: Coca-Cola. Their disciples: Washington politicians.

In their world, everything is for sale. Nothing is sacred. Faceless uniformity and blind loyalty are the norm, as in communist dictatorships. If God were to (re)create the world by the designs of the “Princes of the 20th Century” — the multinationals who sit at the head table of the New World Order, there would be only three kinds of creatures:aus-105.jpg

  • All two-legged creatures would be ostriches
  • All four-legged ones would be sheep
  • All sea-living creatures would be sardines, anxiously waiting in long lines at the Princes’ canning factory docks for their turn to jump into cans, and be exported to some distant low-cal, low-brow; low-IQ, but immensely happy consumer society. Thanks to a steady diet of CNN served with Coca-Cola.”

I repeated this assessment in my speech to the Reform Party Convention in May 2000, when Pat Buchanan was running for president…

…to a standing ovation by the delegates in attendance, including Pat Buchanan.

HOW INDEPENDENT IS TRUMP REALLY?

Which brings us back the full circle. Not only is Trump not an independent candidate.  He has publicly declared that he would not run as an independent. Trump signed a loyalty oath to the Republican Party back in September, pledging to support the eventual GOP standard-bearer.

And then in October of last year, Trump said…

 This could be the greatest Trojan horse. This (Syrian migration into Europe) could make the (original) Trojan horse look like peanuts if these people turned out to be a lot of ISIS. (Trump on “Face the Nation,” Oct 11, 2015 -http://nyp.st/1Qj0lGF )

But could Trump himself actually be a ‘Trojan Horse’ of New World Order plutocrats?

For, if he were really a reformist American so badly needs, why would he be trying so hard to prove that he is a part of the establishment?

WHAT’S TO BE DONE?

Let me net it out the way I see it…

I have been saying for the last quarter “anybody but a Democrat or a Republican.” That truism also holds for election 2016. Which means neither Sanders to Trump – the two frontrunners are the moment.

As can be seen from this chart, both started more or less from the center of the American political spectrum some 15 years ago, and then drifted far to the left (Sanders) and far to the right (Trump).

More importantly, all candidates will say whatever it takes to get themselves elected. But once in office, how much can they be trusted to keep their promises?

All of those who voted Obama now know the pain of disappointment over broken promises. As do those who voted for the two Bush’s and Clinton before them. I have voted for none of them. So my conscience is clear.

Sanders, like the Clintons, is a party loyalist trying to look like an outsider to distinguish himself from Hillary. Trump is a card-carrying member of the billionaires club – the 563 plutocrats, out of 319 million of us, who have been getting richer while most of the American people are getting poorer.

“Those who deformed us cannot reform us,” read a crude white painted slogan on a Prague wall during the 1989 Velvet Revolution.

So the only person who can truly change the corrupt political system in America is an outsider, neither a Democrat or a Republican.

WHAT TO DO ON NOV 8?

Bottom line? Vote for any third party candidate who emerges between now and November.

Or don’t vote at all. Which is what the majority of Americans has already done.

Over 63% of us boycotted the 2014 midterm elections, the lowest turnout since 1824 (see DISGUST & APATHY: BIG WINNERS IN 2014 ELECTIONS).

That’s because voting for either a Democrat or a Republican will only serve to legitimize the New World Order’s electoral farce and tighten the plutocrats’ noose around our collective necks. A silent protest is better than a vote for an oppressor.

What do I think would actually happen?

Trump will get the Republican nomination. And I will sit on my hands again come Nov 8 – see http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1fl

UPDATE DEC 16, 2017

And what DID I do on Nov 8?

I voted for Trump. Shame on me! I did not heed my own advice. And for the first time ever, I voted for an establishment party candidate whom I called a Trojan horse only 8 months before. 😦

Mea culpa, mea ultima culpa!

  1. I agree that the 2 major parties are so corrupt and fraudulent, and have been so for decades now. We cannot expect true reform or constructive change from them. But, I would clarify that the phony Republicans are not truly conservative. They use conservative campaign rhetoric and platitudes to get elected, but once in power, they do not really enact conservative measures on much of anything.

    “But could Trump himself actually be a ‘Trojan Horse’ of New World Order plutocrats?”

    Great question.
