THE AMERICAN DEMO FARCE IS GETTING WORSE

85% of Americans think Congress serves lobbyists, not the people

Well, for the Truth in Media readers and followers of several decades, this is nothing new. But it is the new news base don the latest Associated Press poll.

The overwhelming majority of Americans, irrespective of party allegiance, holds a dismal opinion of Congress, a fresh poll shows. It found 89 percent of Democrats and 82 percent of Republicans disapprove of the legislature’s work.

The attitude to the Republican-controlled legislature does not change much across party lines. The number of Democrats that held an unfavorable view of Congress, 89 percent, is only seven percentage points higher than that of Republicans, at 82 percent.

While Congress, at its current 20 percent approval rating, according to Gallup, is safe from breaking records any time soon, President Donald Trump, with his 38.4 percent job approval rating during his first year in office, became the first president to go below 40 percent in his first year, with his nearest contender in this respect being Bill Clinton, at 49.3 percent.

BACKGROUND STORIES

In November 1996, I penned a column which the WASHINGTON TIMES titled “Demo Farce and the American Century.” In it, I wrote:

Election ’96 was a ‘demo farce!’ The U.S. democracy is turning into a New World Order plutocracy.”

 It was in October 1993 that I first deciphered the New World Order’s MO, and identified the real boss. I called David Rockefeller the “Big Chesse” at the time.

“David Rockefeller, the ‘Sir’ in the Milosevic-Eagleburger conversation (see below), is sort of Screen Shot 2015-01-01 at 1.32.54 PMthe ‘Big Cheese,’ the grand patriarch of the American foreign policy, who ‘owns’ people around him. Using the CFR and the TLC as instruments of power, Rockefeller and his associates have nearly all the political and media bases covered. In the end, it does not matter whether Republicans or the Democrats win. Either way, it will be the (Rockefeller) ‘insiders’ who will run the show in Washington. (A quote from “Plutocracy Is Alive and Well in America,” Truth in Media, Nov 1993)

Four years later, I issued this warning about the oligarchs like Rockefeller, Soros and others 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 almost 22 years ago – in a March 9, 1997 WASHINGTON TIMES column, titled “Plutocrats of the New World Orderhttp://www.truthinmedia.org/Columns/Plutocrats%20of%20NWO.html

TRUMP’S GAFFES: JUST IN JANUARY

TRUMP’S BUMBLING COMMENTS KICK OFF NEW YEAR AND DOMINATE HIS FIRST ANNIVERSARY AS PRESIDENT

JAN 7, 2018

US president becomes laughing stock of the world

UNRAVELING OF A MEGALOMANIC, NARCISSISTIC, SCHIZOPHRENIC PRESIDENT WHO TRUMPS HIMSELF

Trump: I am “a very stable genius”

 The controversial book (Fire and Fury) did not expose a megalomanic, narcissistic, schizophrenic president to the world. Donald Trump did it himself with his own words:

“I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!” (excerpt from a Trump tweet Jan 6, 2018)

“I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!” (excerpt from a Trump tweet Jan 6, 2018 – Trump: I’m a ‘very stable genius’ – http://cnn.it/2F74uia).

In the last 50 years…

And with those words, Trump launched himself into immortality. Never before has America has a president so full of himself, so shallow, so insecure, so immature.

“They all say, ‘He is like a child,’ and what they mean by that is he has a need for immediate gratification,” the author of the book Fire and Fury, Michael Wolff, told NBC on Friday. “It’s all about him.”

Ironically, Trump posted those “very stable genius” words on Epiphany (Jan 6). And now, the whole world can experience an epiphany about who and what Trump really is.

  • We’ve had crooks in the White House (Nixon).
  • We’ve had clumsy klutzes (Ford).
  • We’ve had peanut farmers who cost us a valuable ally (Carter-Iran).
  • We’ve had actors who read their lines to perfection (Reagan).
  • We’ve had wimps (Bush Sr).
  • We’ve had draft-dodgers, liars and sex offenders (Clinton).
  • We’ve had more liars and cheaters (Bush Jr – 9/11, WMD)
  • We’ve had crooks galore (Obama).

But never before have we had a megalomanic, narcissistic, schizophrenic president who has now become the laughing stock of the world.

“It is downright scary to think that a man like that has access and ability to use our nuclear arsenal,” I told Elizabeth yesterday during our walk on a Maui beach.

TRUMP’S “DAMAGE CONTROL” (i.e., LYING AND DENYING) FAILES TO STEM GLOBAL OUTRAGE OVER HIS “SHITHOLE” REMARK

Donald Trump has been branded a shocking and shameful racist after it was credibly reported he had described African nations, as well as Haiti and El Salvador as “shitholes” and questioned why so many of their citizens had ever been permitted to enter America.

US diplomats around the world were summoned for formal reproach, amid global shock that such crude remarks could ever be made in a semi-public meeting by the president of America.

In a strongly-worded statement, the UN said it was impossible to describe his remarks as anything other than racist, while the Vatican decried Trump’s words as “particularly harsh and offensive”.

The 55-nation African Union said the remarks were “clearly racist”.

Trump initially allowed reported accounts of his comments to go unchallenged, but went into damage limitation mode on Friday, insisting he had not used derogatory words – but admitting that the language he had used at a meeting with Senators on immigration was “tough”.

But the democratic senator Dick Durbin – who was present at the meeting with Trump on Thursday – insisted that the reports were entirely accurate. For more, see… https://goo.gl/19CAgW

RUMPUS DU FUSS AKA DONALD DOOFUS LIVES!

Trump’s latest shenanigans (“sh**thole countries”) bring back memories about my satire on “Rumpus du Fuss” (Donald Doofus) – see my Aug 5, 2017 post.

Rumpus Du Fuss ALTZAR 1-12-18

BTW – Jacques Ferdinand Devereaux was my 18th century incarnation. I was born in Paris. My father was French, my mother Austrian. I was a disciple of Count Saint Germain in that lifetime. After meeting Mozart in Paris, I moved to Vienna where Amadeus and I collaborated on alchemical power of music.

TRUMP GETS A CLEAN BILL OF MENTAL HEALTH FROM HIS WHITE HOUSE NAVY DOCTOR, NOT A PSYCHIATRIST

ALTZAR: Only someone whose mental health is in question would request a test to prove that he is okay.

Normal people would just shrug off such innuenda and see to it that their actions would prove the accusers wrong.

Only someone who wants to manage the outcome would hire a Navy doctor whose salary he pays to be the judge of that.

Was this doctor a qualified psychiatrist? No.

Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson graduated from the medical school at the University of Texas in 1995. From there, he went to the Portsmouth Naval Medical Center,

Did the tests the doctor performed have anything to do with diagnosing a psychopathic behavior? Not that we know of.

Yet Trump paraded today his White House doctor, this Rear Admiral, who is trained as an emergency doctor, as the conclusive authority on the president’s mental health.

You would think that requesting such an assessment by a non-psychiatric professional alone would be yet another example of Trump’s psychopathic behavior?

Why does that matter?

Because Duke University Medical Center professor of psychiatry Dr. Jonathan Davidson published a study that reviewed biographical sources for the first 37 presidents (from 1776 to 1974).

Expert psychiatrists, unlike this Navy White House doctor, concluded that half suffered from mental illness, 27 percent while still in office.

Meanwhile, back to today’s news story…

Donald Trump has been deemed fit to serve as the president, the White House doctor announced after the US commander in chief voluntarily underwent a cognitive test to put questions about his mental health to rest.

The cognitive exam was Trump’s own idea. Jackson initially had “no intention” of including such a test in the US president’s first annual physical checkup since it’s not part of the routine procedure. However, Trump, according to Jackson, specifically asked to be screened for impairments such as Alzheimer’s.

ARMCHAIR PSYCHIATRIST TEST

Psychopathy Checklist

Here’s an armchair psychiatrist test for you. The following are some of the traits of a psychopath. On my checklist Trump fits 13 of 20. What about you?

  1. 1. GLIB and SUPERFICIAL CHARM — The tendency to be smooth, engaging, charming, slick, and verbally facile. Psychopathic charm is not in the least shy, self-conscious, or afraid to say anything.  A psychopath never gets tongue-tied. They have freed themselves from the social conventions about taking turns in talking, for example.
    2. GRANDIOSE SELF-WORTH — A grossly inflated view of one’s abilities and self-worth, self-assured, opinionated, cocky, a braggart. Psychopaths are arrogant people who believe they are superior human beings.
    3. NEED FOR STIMULATION or PRONENESS TO BOREDOM — An excessive need for novel, thrilling, and exciting stimulation; taking chances and doing things that are risky. Psychopaths often have low self-discipline in carrying tasks through to completion because they get bored easily. They fail to work at the same job for any length of time, for example, or to finish tasks that they consider dull or routine.
    4. PATHOLOGICAL LYING — Can be moderate or high; in moderate form, they will be shrewd, crafty, cunning, sly, and clever; in extreme form, they will be deceptive, deceitful, underhanded, unscrupulous, manipulative, and dishonest.
    5. CONNING AND MANIPULATIVENESS — The use of deceit and deception to cheat, con, or defraud others for personal gain; distinguished from Item #4 in the degree to which exploitation and callous ruthlessness is present, as reflected in a lack of concern for the feelings and suffering of one’s victims.
    6. LACK OF REMORSE OR GUILT — A lack of feelings or concern for the losses, pain, and suffering of victims; a tendency to be unconcerned, dispassionate, cold-hearted, and non-empathic. This item is usually demonstrated by a disdain for one’s victims.
    7. SHALLOW AFFECT — Emotional poverty or a limited range or depth of feelings; interpersonal coldness in spite of signs of open gregariousness.
    8. CALLOUSNESS and LACK OF EMPATHY — A lack of feelings toward people in general; cold, contemptuous, inconsiderate, and tactless.
    9. POOR BEHAVIORAL CONTROLS — Expressions of irritability, annoyance, impatience, threats, aggression, and verbal abuse; inadequate control of anger and temper; acting hastily.
    10. PROMISCUOUS SEXUAL BEHAVIOR — A variety of brief, superficial relations, numerous affairs, and an indiscriminate selection of sexual partners; the maintenance of several relationships at the same time; a history of attempts to sexually coerce others into sexual activity or taking great pride at discussing sexual exploits or conquests.
    11. IMPULSIVITY — The occurrence of behaviors that are unpremeditated and lack reflection or planning; inability to resist temptation, frustrations, and urges; a lack of deliberation without considering the consequences; foolhardy, rash, unpredictable, erratic, and reckless.
    12. IRRESPONSIBILITY — Repeated failure to fulfill or honor obligations and commitments; such as not paying bills, defaulting on loans, performing sloppy work, being absent or late to work, failing to honor contractual agreements.
    13. FAILURE TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR OWN ACTIONS — A failure to accept responsibility for one’s actions reflected in low conscientiousness, an absence of dutifulness, antagonistic manipulation, denial of responsibility, and an effort to manipulate others through this denial.

Toward the first anniversary of Trump’s presidency (Jan 20)

TRUMP’S APPROVAL RATING LOWEST OF ANY PRESIDENT

A Gallup survey found that Trump reaches the first anniversary of his inauguration with the lowest average approval rating of any elected president in his first year.

That poll showed that Trump has averaged just a 39% approval rating since his inauguration. The previous low was held by Bill Clinton, whose first-year average was 10 points higher than Trump’s, at 49%.

GLOBAL CONFIDENCE IN US LEADERSHIP ALSO HITS A NEW LOW

Global confidence in US leadership has also fallen to a new low, and the country now ranks below China in worldwide approval ratings, according to a new Gallup poll.

The survey of opinion in 134 countries showed a record collapse in approval for the US role in the world, from 48% under Obama to 30% after one year of Donald Trump – the lowest level Gallup has recorded since beginning its global leadership poll over a decade ago.

D’EVOLUTION

DER SPIEGEL (Mirror) is a German weekly news magazine published in Hamburg. It is one of Europe’s largest publications of its kind, with a weekly circulation of 840,000.

Devolution, de-evolution, or backward evolution – is the notion that species can revert to supposedly more primitive forms over time.

The current cover of DER SPIEGEL magazine was used as basis for this D’EVOLUTION image. DER SPIEGEL came up with the artwork, the Truth in media the headline.

TRUMP’S PRESIDENCY WAS EFFECTIVELY OVER BY LATE JULY WHEN HE SIGNED THE NEW RUSSIA SANCTIONS BILL

From then on, he was just another patsy of the Deep State or New World Order, if you prefer.

Here are some milestones from my posts in the first year of Trump’s presidency. What started as a great promise to “Make America Great Again,” quickly dissolved into a string of broken promises.

The first of those was Trump’s backing away from his vow to prosecute Hillary. Which was the reason I voted for him. It took Trump only two weeks to make me regret that vote. I have been regretting it nearly every day since.

Trump’s presidency was virtually over by the end of July when he buckled under to the pressure of Russia’s enemies in Congress and signed the new sanctions bill “against his better judgment.”

From then on, the man who promised to “drain the swamp” in DC became just another reptile in it.

Trump proved it again on Dec 6, when he cow-towed to pro-Israel lobby and recognized Jerusalem as its capital – a move condemned by a vast majority of the world community (the UN vote against it was 128-9).

No wonder the recent poll has shown that Trump’s approval rating is the lowest of any president after the first year in office. Even the lowly, and later thoroughly disgraced, Bill Clinton scored 10 points higher than Trump.

Anybody but Democrat Republican pig trough

So it goes… I hang my head in shame. Because I allowed Don the Con to con me, too, even though I called him a “Trojan Horse” in a Feb 2016 editorial. It was the first time EVER that I had voted for a Democratic or Republican candidate.

Mea culpa, mea ultima culpa.

TRUMP’S FLYING HOME: EXTERIOR VIEW

AND NOW, HERE’S A CHAPTER FROM TRUMP’S AVIATION EXPERIENCES THE PRESIDENT MIGHT PREFER TO FORGET…

TRUMP AND KINGDOM OF GOD

“It’s easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God” (Bible verse, Matthew 19:24)

The other night, Elizabeth and I were watching on PBS an episode from season 2 of an excellent British series VICTORIA. At one point, the then British PM, Sir Robert Peel, leader of the Conservative Party, uses this Bible verse when trying to dissuade the Queen from one of her ideas.

donald-trump-bible-rich man

Immediately, I had this image in my mind of Trump’s lavish opulence which he so garishly flaunts. I thought it was apt to create it for the first anniversary of his presidency.

And on that note, we can put a period at the end of Trump’s first year in office.

 

 

 

 

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?

trump-trojan-header

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 FEB 27, 2018

THE AMERICAN DEMO FARCE IS GETTING WORSE

85% of Americans think Congress serves lobbyists, not the people

Well, for the Truth in Media readers and followers of several decades, this is nothing new. But it is the new news base don the latest Associated Press poll.

The overwhelming majority of Americans, irrespective of party allegiance, holds a dismal opinion of Congress, a fresh poll shows. It found 89 percent of Democrats and 82 percent of Republicans disapprove of the legislature’s work.

The attitude to the Republican-controlled legislature does not change much across party lines. The number of Democrats that held an unfavorable view of Congress, 89 percent, is only seven percentage points higher than that of Republicans, at 82 percent.

In November 1996, I penned a column which the WASHINGTON TIMES titled “Demo Farce and the American Century.” In it, I wrote:

Election ’96 was a ‘demo farce!’ The U.S. democracy is turning into a New World Order plutocracy.”

 It was in October 1993 that I first deciphered the New World Order’s MO, and identified the real boss. I called David Rockefeller the “Big Chesse” at the time.

“David Rockefeller, the ‘Sir’ in the Milosevic-Eagleburger conversation (see below), is sort of Screen Shot 2015-01-01 at 1.32.54 PMthe ‘Big Cheese,’ the grand patriarch of the American foreign policy, who ‘owns’ people around him.

That’s what this writer said almost 22 years ago – in a 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 – http://www.truthinmedia.org/Bulletins/tim98-1-1.html (Jan 1998)

In November 1996, I penned a column which the WASHINGTON TIMES titled “Demo Farce and the American Century.” In it, I wrote:

Election ’96 was a ‘demo farce!’ The U.S. democracy is turning into a New World Order plutocracy.”

“LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD”… PUPPETS ON A STRING

IF YOU CAN’T BEAT HIM, JOIN HIM… AND THEN TURN HIM

There is no doubt anymore… Donald Trump is the same as or worse than Ronald Reagan.  “Like Ronald, like Donald…” – my Oct 23, 2016 warning, repeated the day after the election – is sadly coming true.

The New World Order powers that be have surrounded our new president with their loyalists who have managed to turn him in less than three months.  Or maybe he has always been one of them.  After all, it took more than two years for the globalists in Reagan’s White House to turn the president to follow their agenda.

So maybe Trump used the promise to “make America great again” merely as an election tagline. Which he has shed with ease, like a snake shedding its skin.  The real Donald Trump is first and foremost the friend of Israel, not of the American people. But don’t take my word for it. Here’s what Israel’s prime minister “Bibi” Netanyahu told reporters on Feb 16, 2017 at the White House:

“There is no greater supporter of the Jewish people and the Jewish state than President Donald Trump,” Netanyahu said.

The two even wore the matching blue ties, even though red is the color of Trump’s alleged allegiance to the Republican Party.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/embed/video/1413375.html [VIDEO]

TRUMP AGREED

Answering a reporter’s question about a rise of antisemitism in the U.S., Trump said, ‘you’re going to see a lot of love, a lot of love, OK?’ Trump promised the Jewish Americans.

From here, Netanyahu stepped in with his own praise.

‘If I can respond to something that I know from personal experience,’ the Israeli leader said. ‘I’ve known President Trump for many years and to allude to him or to his people, his team, some of them I’ve known for many years too.’

Bibi then brought up his long-standing relationship with Kushner (Trump’s son-in-law), who’s been tasked with helping with Middle East peace, suggesting that there’s no way these people could be responsible for the rising tide of antisemitism in the United States.

So there you have it – from the horses’ mouths:

ISRAEL’S AGENDA IS TRUMP’S AGENDA

And vice versa.

  • That’s why Trump has put a number of pro-Israeli Jewish Americans in key positions of his administration (see the photo below right and this story)
  • That’s why so many of them were with Trump in the war room when he ordered the Syria strike on Apr 7 (see Who Was in the Room? These Advisers Joined Trump for the Syria Strike – https://nyti.ms/2obBoaP).
  • That’s why Trump increased the U.S. military budget instead of reducing our overseas deployments, as he had promised during the election.
  • That’s why Trump did a turn-about-face on Syria, expanding our military involvement in the country that poses no threat to the U.S., instead of getting us out of Syria, as he told Obama in 2013.
  • That’s why Trump reversed himself on Russia, too, dialing up Obama’s belligerent talk about the world’s largest country instead of offering Russia an olive branch, as he had hinted during and right after the election.
  • That’s why Trump dropped America’s biggest non-nuclear bomb –  the MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) – in Afghanistan on Apr 13, killing nearly 100 people, but more importantly trying to intimidate the world with its “big stick.”

Which means Trump is not much different than Obama. He is not much different than Hillary might have been. On Nov 8, Trump pulled off the biggest con of his life which put the biggest feather in the cap of Don the Con – the White House (see THREE PEAS IN A POD, Apr 14, 2017).

NWO triplets

Here’s why…

Gary Cohn, for example, is the former second-in-command at Goldman Sachs, the world-spanning global financial firm that Trump used as a stand-in for everything he was running against during his presidential campaign.

Now, the Svengali who shaped that campaign and its populist tone, Stephen Bannon, appears to be slipping from his perch on Trump’s shoulder. And Cohn, whose enemies cast him as an elitist, a globalist, and a liberal, is clawing his way up.

“Gary Cohn would be too liberal for the Obama administration,” former Trump advisor Sam Nunberg told Yahoo News. “I don’t know what he’s doing in a Republican White House,”

Sadly, all this was predictable.  I warned about about a possibility of a fifth column inside the Trump White House on three different occasions: Two weeks prior to the election, one day after the election, and two weeks after the election.

Here are excerpts from those Truth in Media editorials…

One thing I had not fully understood at the time was that ISRAEL’S AGENDA IS TRUMP’S AGENDA. “Bibi’ Netanyahu made that perfectly clear on Feb 16, 2017 when he said,:”

“There is no greater supporter of the Jewish people and the Jewish state than President Donald Trump.”

UPDATE APR 30, 2017

FIRST 100 DAYS: TRUMP “BROKEN BY U.S. POWER MACHINE,” “CONSISTENTLY INCONSISTENT”

Trump’s 100 days prove his maverick image was fake, says RT.COM editorial

Donald Trump’s election strategy relied to a degree on the image of an anti-establishment billionaire who could fix a broken DC. Instead, his actions in office have been aligned with the policies of the same special interests he used to speak out against.

Some of Trump’s critics say he was dishonest from the start. Others, like Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, believe he has been “broken” by the US establishment, which would not tolerate a president that wanted to improve relations with Moscow or stop America’s perpetual wars.

Either way, the 45th US president has proven himself consistently inconsistent during his first 100 days in office. Here are some of the issues Trump has done a 180 flip-flop on since taking the Oval Office.

Read more… https://on.rt.com/8a95

EXCEPT THAT TRUMP HAS BEEN REMARKABLY CONSISTENT IN HIS LOYALTY TO ISRAEL

ALTZAR: Which is actually what a Truth in Media editorial stated several times during the last 5.5 months since the election. Like this one:

“LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD”… PUPPETS ON A STRING; IF YOU CAN’T BEAT HIM, JOIN HIM… AND THEN TURN HIM” – There is no doubt anymore… Donald Trump is the same as or worse than Ronald Reagan. “Like Ronald, like Donald…” – my Oct 23, 2016 warning – is sadly coming true – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2eS

ISRAEL – REAL WINNER OF NOV 8 ELECTION

So Trump has been indeed “consistent in being inconsistent”, except when it comes to one foreign policy subject – Israel. In that regard, Trump has been remarkably consistent, both as a candidate and as president. Trump even campaigned in Israel (see the photo below).

No wonder Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu positively beamed with joy over Kushner and Trump during his White House visit on Feb 16 (photos – also see Complete List of the Trump Campaign’s Promises to Israel – https://goo.gl/J62wl8).

Also no wonder Trump’s true loyalty lies in Israel, given his close family ties to Jared Kushner, his son-in-law and Ivanka, Trump’s daughter who converted to Judaism. Both were awarded with influential White House posts.

Nepotism?

Nah. Just the way the Jews and their families and friends do business with each other in New York. And in Israel. And now also in Washington, DC.
They think they are above the law, Just like… oops, what’s her name – the other candidate with a Jewish son-in-law who ran against Trump.? Oh, yeah… the one whom Trump had promised to prosecute. “Because nobody is above the law.”

TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE ELECTION

Two weeks before the election, in the midst of the pro-Hillary polls and media frenzy, I predicted that Donal Trump would win. But I also warned that it could be a hollow victory if he does not learn from history. More specifically,  what happened to another populist president when he got to the White House (Ronald Reagan)..

Here’s my Oct 23, 2016 post:

BEIRUT EMBASSY BOMBING: REAGAN’S BAPTISM BY FIRE AND HUMILIATION BY NEW WORLD ORDER’S FIFTH COLUMN IN HIS CABINET

Will the Same Happen with Trump When He Is Elected? – https://is.gd/mMcRHn

Oct 23, 2016

IF YOU CAN’T BEAT HIM, JOIN HIM… AND THEN SMOTHER HIM

ALTZAR: Ronald Reagan was the only US president in the last half a century who was not a card-carrying member of the globalist New World Order organizations, such as the Council for Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and Bilderberg Group, for example. Like Donald Trump, he was elected because he was an outspoken critic of such establishment “elites.”

What happened in the aftermath of the Beirut embassy bombing was a perfect example of how these New World Order globalists deal with a popular outsider. They muzzle him by surrounding him with loyal members of their societies which would advance their agendas and interests no matter what a sitting president may think.

Like Caspar Weinberger, for example, Reagan’s Secretary of Defense, who was a member of both CFR and Trilateral Commission. In the end, he and his NWO cronies overpowered the popular president. Reagan was forced to retreat from Lebanon without retaliation because of the NWO-US multinational companies’ oil interests in the region. As a result, 241 American Marines and 58 French paratroopers lost their lives for nothing. Reagan left Lebanon with his tail between his legs despite his initial aggressive rhetoric.

Which is why it will be interesting to see what happens AFTER Donald Trump is elected on Nov 7. Will he allow the NWO bosses to overwhelm him with their picks for cabinet appointments as was the case with Reagan?

 * * *

ONE DAY AFTER THE ELECTION

The morning after the election, I repeated this warning. Here’s my Nov 9 , 2016 post (https://is.gd/mMcRHn):

STAY VIGILANT: LET’S NOT HAVE A REAGAN FIFTH COLUMN ENCORE

The universe is unfolding as it should and as expected. But at this time of joy and jubilation, we also must stay vigilant. We must not rest until all the New World Order snakes have been driven from our shores or put behind bars.  So we can start to rebuild our society into making America great again.

And to do that, we must not allow the New World Order plutocrats to surround Trump with their minions as they did with Ronald Reagan in the 1981 and beyond. For more on that, see my Oct 23 post:

We must pray that our new president remains clear-headed about who his true friends and enemies are and does not allow the NWO fifth column anywhere near his White House. And we must also insist that he deliver on his promise to bring Hillary and Obama administration officials to justice as co-conspirators in her crimes (see TRUMP SHOULD REVOKE HILLARY’S PASSPORT – https://is.gd/UCfRF9).

 * * *

TWO WEEKS AFTER THE ELECTION

Two weeks after the election, Trump backed away from one of his key election promises – to prosecute Hillary. It was our first hint that he would be no different than Reagan.  So on Nov 22, 2016, I penned this editorial:

LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD

Birds of a feather flock together…

BROKEN PROMISES: TRUMP BACKS AWAY FROM THREAT TO JAIL HILLARY

trump-hillary-2005

“I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t,” Trump says after his visit to New York Times today

“They will get over it,” Trump brushes off his disappointed supporters

Maybe not: “BROKEN PROMISE” blared the headline of Breitbart News, Trump’s most loyal supporter

screen-shot-2016-11-22-at-11-29-21-am 960x0

“They?” The New World Order so-called “elite.” Of which Trump is a member.

This morning, it was my turn to feel like I have a pit in my stomach.  Not just because I voted for Trump – for the first time ever breaking my vow not to vote for either a Democrat or a Republican presidential candidate.  The alternative (Hillary) was so much worse. So I might have done the same thing again anyway even with 20/20 hindsight.

Anybody but Democrat Republican pig trough

Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa (My mistake, my big mistake – Lat.)

The real reason I have a pit in my stomach is that I allowed Trump to dupe me. So my journalistic, literary and geopolitical analyst’s pride hurts more than just one voter feeling betrayed.

What makes it even worse is that I feel I let myself down. And you – my readers and followers. By leading you astray in trusting Trump. Because I saw it all coming. I just did not stay true to myself and my instincts.

Back on February 24, in my first editorial comment about the Election 2016,  I called Trump a “Trojan Horse” of the American plutocrats.

“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.” (from Trojan Horse”).

“DON THE CON”

A Good Friday 2017 Truth in Media Editorial

“DON THE CON” FLIP-FLOPS AGAIN

Our latest “Mr Flip-Flop” in the White House turns his back on election promises and the American people to show his true allegiance – to the plutocrats of the New World Order, like himself, and to Israel

PEACE BE DAMNED… EVEN ON GOOD FRIDAY! (some Christian Trump is)

FOREWORD

On Feb 24, 2016, in its first editorial on US Election 2016, the Truth in Media headline read:

IS TRUMP ACTUALLY A TROJAN HORSE? (of American plutocrats – see http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1fl)

Now we can answer the question unequivocally:

YES!!!

trump-trojan-horse

Sometimes you hate to be right. This is one of those times.  Donald Trump is a Trojan Horse of the New World Order. Just like I suspected in Feb 2016.

“Those who deformed us cannot reform us,” I wrote on Feb 24, 2016, 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.”

Anybody but Democrat Republican pig trough-hdrThis is what I also wrote back in Feb 2016:

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” (Feb 24, 2016)

Yet I voted for Don the Con.  I allowed myself to be duped by this conman from New York, just like millions of other Americans. For that, I hang my head low in shame and apologize to my readers.

I was right about Trump and about the election outcome. Yet I did not follow my own advice. For the first time in my life, I voted for a candidate from one of the two major parties (Trump).

Excerpts from that Feb 2016 editorial:

“Trump said (in Oct 2015) Syrian refugees could be a ‘Trojan Horse’ for ISIS. But could he actually be a ‘Trojan Horse’ for New World Order plutocrats? After all, he is one of  them…” (IS TRUMP ACTUALLY A TROJAN HORSE? (of American plutocrats – see http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1fl)

…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?”

They can’t.  The “false flag” chemical attack in Syria last week, Rex Tillerson’s visit to Russia (Apr 11-12), and Trump’s subsequent comments about NATO and Russia, left no doubt in my mind anymore that he was a Trojan Horse:

“Donald Trump says US relations with Russia ‘may be at all-time low’. President also says NATO is ‘no longer obsolete’ following his secretary of state’s visit to Moscow” (Guardian, Feb 13, 2017 – https://goo.gl/omQ3ff)

“In the latest of a series of dramatic foreign policy reversals in recent days, Trump dropped an allegation he had repeated throughout his presidential campaign, telling the Wall Street Journal that the Chinese were “not currency manipulators”.

“The president’s comments confirmed a significant shift in his positions since taking office nearly three months ago, cooling towards Russia and reaffirming support for NATO.”

MR FLIP-FLOP

  • Trump’s first flip-flop took place shortly after the Nov 8 election when he backed out of his October debate promise to prosecute Hillary Clinton.
  • He promised to reduce our military deployments overseas, but has instead increased Pentagon’s military budget.
  • And on Apr 13, Trump told reporters that he’s given the military “total authorization.”  In other words, a blank check to wage war at will.  I don’t know of any other president who has done a foolish thing like that. No wonder that the same day (Apr 13), the US military dropped the GBU-43, a 22,000-pound bomb dubbed MOAB (Mother of All Bombs), allegedly on an IS (Islamic State) target in Afghanistan. MOAB is the largest non-nuclear bomb in existence.Screen Shot 2017-04-13 at 5.43.28 PM

(By the way, whatever happened to Al Qaeda and Taliban – our alleged enemies in Afghanistan? Guess they were renamed to IS by the New World Order PR people to make IS supposedly a global threat).

  • In 2013, Trump also said we should get out of Syria and criticized Obama for getting us involved in that civil war. Yet since his inauguration, he has actually accelerated the Syria bombings and our military involvement in that country which is no threat to the United States whatsoever.
  • And now, Trump has also flip-flopped on his earlier stance on both Russia and NATO.

So there is no doubt anymore in this writer’s mind that the current occupant of the White House is a liar just like his predecessors.

So in 2016, Don the Con pulled off probably the biggest and the longest con of his life. He duped an entire nation and much of the world.

And now Trump is shedding his sheep’s hide and to show himself what he has always been – one of the New World Order wolves who only care about money and power. And put Israel’s security and interests, such as in Syria, ahead of those of the American people.

“PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE” – the New World Order motto – fits Trump to a tee

… just as this writer said in that Feb 2016 Truth in Media editorial –  “IS TRUMP ACTUALLY A TROJAN HORSE?” (of American plutocrats – see http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1fl).

Bob 11-15-14 Feb 24, 2016

This is my first editorial about the 2016 elections. Those who have followed my occasional cryptic comments on Facebook and Twitter about the leading candidates should have a pretty good idea where I stand, and why I have been saying for decades: “Anybody but a Democrat or a Republican.” And so far, there has been no independent candidate who might be worthy of my vote.

Like Ross Perot in 1992, for example, who invented “informercials” as a campaign tool, something Trump has also tried to copy. But just look at the difference between Perot’s and Trump’s “infomercials” (image below).  Facts versus skin. 

Here’s why Trump is not “it”…

Perot Trump infomercials

IS TRUMP ACTUALLY A “TROJAN HORSE?”

Donald Trump seems to be running away with it. His margin of victory over his Republican rivals in yesterday’s Nevada caucuses was even greater than in South Carolina and New Hampshire – 2 to 1 over his nearest competitor (Rubio):

CANDIDATE NEVADA VOTES % DEL
Candidate illustration

So now all those naysayers who have been dismissing Trump’s candidacy with “he’ll never make it”-comments are having to eat crow and contemplate “the impossible” – Trump as president of the United States.

Until now, we could easily ignore all those bleeding heart liberals and other intolerant factions that make up the Democratic Party’s “borsht” (Russian stew). They have been screaming in desperation and posting hateful messages against Trump for the last year or so. Which proved that they were anything but liberal-minded.

And that, of course, includes the establishment media.  Their reporting has been highly biased against Trump.  Some even stooped as low as to use profanities. Which only cheapened their arguments.

Furthermore, ALL of the “lamestream” media posted photos of Trump in the most unflattering angry poses – scowling, shouting, threatening – evidently trying to associate him with images of past dictators in history.

Screen Shot 2016-02-24 at 6.49.09 PM.PNG

That was no “coincidence.” It was and is a carefully orchestrated hate campaign against Trump by the media that’s supposed to be neutral when it comes to news reporting.

And now, after Nevada, and certainly after next week’s “Super Tuesday” in which 13 states will choose their favorite candidate, the Republican establishment is finding itself in the same boat as the liberal media. Trump is winning and everybody is panicking.

IS ANTI-TRUMP MEDIA RHETORIC ANOTHER CHARADE?

Or are they? Are they really panicking or merely following another carefully scripted New World Order ruse, the latest twist in the devious plot intended to deceive the American electorate?

Why would they do it? Because Trump is one of their own. Anybody who has been watching Trump’s public persona well before he declared his 2016 candidacy would have seen seen a crass man with a giant ego and little regard for anything but money. Which is exactly what all the New World Order chieftains also worship – the Almighty Dollar.

During the last quarter century, the New World Order plutocrats have usurped the U.S. government powers and turned it against the once free people – the electorate, the sheeple, the disenfranchised Americans whose only guaranteed right is to keep on paying taxes to pay for the public debt which the rich line their pockets. And Trump is very much a part of that crowd.

Take a look how cozy he looks with the Clinton’s and Bush’s – the New World Order oligarchs – against whom he is now supposedly running…

But more than just appearances, Trump shares with them same same “religion” – the Love of Money.

REGRESSION OF AMERICA

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.

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.

Screen Shot 2016-05-27 at 4.27.48 PM.png

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

UPDATE MARCH 1, 2016

THEY PULLED OUT ALL STOPS AND STILL CAME UP SHORT

Trump Projected to Sweep “Super Tuesday” Primaries

The forces of the Evil Empire – the so-called New World Order who field most of the Democratic and Republican candidates – had pulled out all stops in their vicious attacks on the leading Republican candidate. They compared him to Hitler. They linked him to the KKK. They accused him of cheating on taxes. They even invoked the lowly Mussolini, trying to associate him with Trump.

The New World Order media whores – as if following orders – invariably depicted Trump in their photos as a grimacing, angry bear. It was a clear as night and day that this was a Madison Ave-style orchestrated campaign aimed at destroying Trump.

But they did not mention Trump’s quote in which he praised Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, as a strong leader who is “making mincemeat out of our president” (Obama).

151229111238-donald-trump-putin-super-169

Two closest Republican candidates – Cruz and Rubio, both establishment whores – elevated their criticism of Trump in the last few days to a fever-pitch scream, dropping any pretense of decency and gentility in their campaigns.

And after all of these dirty tricks… all of them still came up short. The electorate in the 13 states – from Massachusetts to Alabama – turned thumbs up on Trump and thumbs down on the New World Order.

So Trump appears unstoppable now, at least by any legal, above board means. Which, of course, leaves the New World Order leaders their favorite tools – the underhanded or violent means of stopping him.

Or not. If underneath the veneer of a renegade Republican we discover that Trump is also one of “them” (for more on that, see IS TRUMP ACTUALLY A “TROJAN HORSE?” – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1fl).

This is where the plot thickens. Stand by…

UPDATE MARCH 30, 2016

TRUMP ABANDONS PLEDGE TO SUPPORT GOP NOMINEE

Cruz and Kasich Backpedal and Follow Trump’s Example

Republican candidates took a “loyalty pledge” to support the party’s nominee during the first GOP debate

At a CNN town hall event on Tuesday night, Trump reversed on that promise, telling CNN moderator Anderson Cooper he no longer respects the so-called loyalty pledge a stage full of then-candidates agreed to during the very first GOP debate in Cleveland last August.

TOWN_HALL_GettyImages-511248588.jpg

Ted Cruz has been slowly backing away from the pledge and on Tuesday reiterated his hesitation, telling Cooper: “I’m not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and attacks my family.”

John Kasich gave a string of noncommittal responses. When pressed by Cooper about whether he’d respect the pledge, the Ohio governor said, “If the nominee is somebody that I think is really hurting the country and dividing the country, I can’t stand behind them.”

See Trump Abandons Pledge to Support GOP Nominee, Cruz and Kasich Backpedal http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/national-international/Trump-Cruz-Back-Down-From-Pledge-to-Support-

So that’s today’s news from the campaign trail. What does it mean?

WHAT DOES TRUMP’S REVERSAL MEAN?

It means that Trump is clearing the deck if he is forced to run as an independent. Which would happen if the GOP officials manage to sabotage in some illegal way Trump’s seemingly inexorable march to the Republican nomination.

And if Trump were to run as an independent, he would probably win every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Because he would garner even more popular votes than as a Republican candidate.

Who knows, Trump may even get my vote if that were to happen. Because he would have proven that he is not a “Trojan Horse” as I had feared in my Feb 24 editorial (“IS TRUMP A ‘TROJAN HORSE’? – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1fl).

What do I think would actually happen?

Trump will get the Republican nomination. And I will sit on my hands again come Nov 8.

FACTS ABOUT TED CRUZ’S BIRTHER ISSUE

memecruzobamabirthplace032615

Ted Cruz was actually born in a foreign country — Canada — to an American mother, Eleanor Darragh, and a father, Rafael Cruz, who was a Cuban citizen at the time. Ted was born on On Dec. 22, 1970 in Calgary, Alberta.

His father, born and raised in Cuba, actually did not become an American citizen until 2005. When Ted Cruz was born, his parents weren’t visiting Canada or working on a military base — they had lived there for years.

Young Ted himself lived in that foreign country for the early years of his childhood and was actually a Canadian citizen until he renounced it in May of 2014.

cruz lying busted

ALTZAR: The Constitution is clear about the fact that a candidate for President of the United States must be a natural-born citizen.

So why are so many Americans participating in this charade and voting for an INELIGIBLE candidate? Wasn’t Obama’s birther issue controversial enough?

More importantly, does this country really need another professional liar in the White House?

The Guardian today published this OpEd piece by its Washington, DC-based correspondent – http://gu.com/p/4t39n/stw

Here are two replies out of 785 comments submitted so far at the Guardian website:

ALTZAR’s REPLY:

“The rise of Donald Trump is a battle for the soul of the Republican party?” What nonsense! The rise of Donald Trump is a sign of the American people finally pushing back against the usurpation of power by BOTH the Democrats and Republicans who use taxpayers money to serve the interests of big banks and big business. Let us not forget that Trump is the ONLY candidate using his own money to get elected. So he will have to answer to no one but the American people when he is elected.

TRUMP SHOWS HIS TRUE COLORS IN HIS FIRST ENERGY POLICY SPEECH

ANYTHING GOES… SUMS UP TRUMP’S ENERGY “POLICY”

Donald Trump pledged to cancel the Paris climate agreement, endorsed drilling off the Atlantic coast and said he would allow the Keystone XL pipeline to be built in return for “a big piece of the profits” for the American people. And he said he would save the coal industry. Because “those are great people.”

“I have never heard more contradiction in one hour than I heard in the speech,” Sierra Club director told the Guardian.

“There are pools of oil industry wastewater that are deeper than Trump’s grasp of energy.”

ALTZAR: Having watched this video clip from Trump’s first speech on his energy policy, delivered yesterday to a pro-oil and gas industry audience in North Dakota, all I could say is, “holy cow… what a dunderhead!”

Finally, the mask has dropped. And we had a chance to see the real Donald Trump as I hinted in my February editorial – TRUMP ACTUALLY A “TROJAN HORSE?” – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1flIS.

Ironically, moments before delivering his speech, Trump had just crossed the 1,237-delegate mark which assured him of the Republican nomination long before the national convention.

It is hard to believe such a level of ignorance by the leading candidate for President of United States. Of course, Hillary is worse. She has already taken tons of money from Wall Street and the oil and gas industry, including the Arabs.

Donald Trump would allow Keystone XL pipeline and end Paris climate deal (The Guardian)

Donald Trump pledged to cancel the Paris climate agreement, endorsed drilling off the Atlantic coast and said he would allow the Keystone XL pipeline to be built in return for “a big piece of the profits” for the American people.

Trump reaches delegate count needed to clinch Republican nomination

At an oil and natural gas conference in North Dakota on Thursday, just minutes after he had celebrated hitting the 1,237 delegate mark needed to formally clinch the party’s nomination, Trump gave a speech on energy policy that was largely shaped by advice from Kevin Cramer, a US representative from the state.

In a press conference before the event, Trump praised the advice of oil tycoon Harold Hamm. Hamm and Cramer then introduced him onstage.

Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club environmentalist group, was taken aback by Trump’s address.

“I have never heard more contradiction in one hour than I heard in the speech,” he told the Guardian.

“There are pools of oil industry wastewater that are deeper than Trump’s grasp of energy.”

WHAT TO DO ON NOV 8?

This is how I said in conclusion of that February editorial… “IS TRUMP ACTUALLY A ‘TROJAN HORSE’?” —
“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

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.

UPDATE JUNE 25, 2016
To all of my friends who fell for the “Feel the Bern” rhetoric in the last few months, just as many did for Obama in 2008…

BERNIE SANDERS: HILLARY’S “TROJAN HORSE” SHOWS HIS TRUE FACE

“I’ll vote for Hillary Clinton” (he said in an MSNBC TV interview)
It pains me when something like this happens. I feel no joy writing another “I told you so” comment. For, I remember vividly saying the same things about Obama back in 2008 when so many people around this country were euphoric about his presidential aspiration.
Over the next eight years, this Wall Street stooge let them all down. And yet they fell for the same trick again when Bernie Sanders hoisted the flag of “real change.”
You know the old saying, “fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”
Right now, I feel a sense of shame – that so many of my countrymen have proven once again to be so gullible. For, in the end, Sanders also proved to be merely Hillary’s “Trojan Horse.”
No surprise there.
I concluded my Feb 24 Truth in Media editorial – “IS TRUMP ACTUALLY A ‘TROJAN HORSE?’” – by saying “ANYBODY BUT A DEMOCRAT OR A REPUBLICAN” (see the image) – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1fl .
Maybe now I can add a subhead to that piece: “BERNIE: HILLARY’S TROJAN HORSE”.

LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD… PUPPETS ON A STRING

Birds of a feather flock together…

BROKEN PROMISES: TRUMP BACKS AWAY FROM THREAT TO JAIL HILLARY

“I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t,” Trump says after his visit to New York Times today

“They will get over it,” Trump brushes off his disappointed supporters

Maybe not: “BROKEN PROMISE” blared the headline of Breitbart News, Trump’s most loyal supporter

Here we go again.  Looks like “they” are coopting Donald as they did with Ronald 35 years ago. Trump is not even president as yet, and “they” are already managing to soften him up.

“They?” The New World Order so-called “elite.” Of which Trump is a member.

This morning, it was my turn to feel like I have a pit in my stomach.  Not just because I voted for Trump – for the first time ever breaking my vow not to vote for either a Democrat or a Republican presidential candidate.  The alternative (Hillary) was so much worse. So I might have done the same thing again anyway even with 20/20 hindsight.

Anybody but Democrat Republican pig trough

Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa (My mistake, my big mistake – Lat.)

The real reason I have a pit in my stomach is that I allowed Trump to dupe me. So my journalistic, literary and geopolitical analyst’s pride hurts more than just one voter feeling betrayed.

What makes it even worse is that I feel I let myself down. And you – my readers and followers. By leading you astray in trusting Trump. Because I saw it all coming. I just did not stay true to myself and my instincts.

Back on February 24, in my first editorial comment about the Election 2016,  I called Trump a “Trojan Horse” of the American plutocrats.

“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.” (from Trojan Horse”).
Okay, so back to today’s news first…

TRUMP AT NEW YORK TIMES

In a closed door meeting with editors of the New York Times today – yes the very same  media rag that demonized Trump throughout the campaign (!) was honored by the presedent-elect – Donald Trump said, explaining why he backed away from his promise to prosecute Hillary:

“I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t.” (Donald Trump, Nov 22, 2016)

23trump7_hp-master768

No wonder “birds of a feather flock together.”  Donald and Hillary and Bill and Melania have been chums for a long time (see Never Forget When Donald Trump And Hillary Clinton Were Actually Friends, Sep 26, 2016 – http://elitedaily.com/news/politics/donald-trump-hillary-clinton-friends/1619008/).

Alas, this is not just about Trump protecting the Clintons. It’s just as important that he is breaking his other election promises.

“Reneging on his repeated calls to assign a special prosecutor to go after Clinton is just the latest in a series of campaign promises Trump has abandoned in the two weeks since he was elected president, including a ban on Muslim immigration (Trump is now hedging), building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border (a mere “campaign device”, according to Newt Gingrich), and dismantling Obamacare (he’d like to keep the most popular parts.)

But Trump’s most adamant supporters aren’t taking this particular betrayal well. “BROKEN PROMISE” blared the headline atop Breitbart News, the media organization previously run by top Trump adviser Stephen Bannon.

Asked about disappointing his supporters, Trump told the New York Times they would get over it. “I don’t think they will be disappointed,” he said.

So all this supposed enmity between Donald and Hillary has been just a war of words, a tempest in a tea. A show.  So much emotion, so much energy, so much money, so many millions of prayers by Trump supporters… and it may be all for naught. A mountain shook, a mouse was born.

Because the American plutocrats, like the Clintons and Trumps, are thicker than thieves. Trump has not ever been sworn as president, and yet this is become quite clear.

“…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.” (from Trojan Horse”).

Well, no longer. My conscience is no longer clear. I have become a part of the problem by voting for Trump.

Trump’s campaign manager, now presidential advisor, Kellyanne Conway, said today in an interview with MSNBC, that Trump backed away from prosecuting Hillary to give her time to heal.

Give her time to heal?

You’d think criminals get plenty of time to heal once behind bars. But evidently that does not apply to those among the New World Order “elite” who think they are above the law. Like Hillary. Now seconded by Trump.

I hang my head low in shame.

PS: Watch the Trump apologists now storm out of their hiding places. “How dare you?” some of them will say. “A troll!” others will shout. To which I say, quoting Arthur Schopenhauer:

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”

So stand by for Trump stages two and three.

AMAZING SYNCHRONICITY

I am sure you will find this story pretty incredible, as I have, so let me play it back in chronological order.

This morning, following up on the news that Trump was going soft on the Clintons (or maybe he always has been), I was inspired to create this post as my today’s Facebook “Levity Interlude”:

Levity Interlude

Question: WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU CROSS THE TRUMPS WITH THE CLINTONS?

Answer: You get a snap from Ted Carol Bob Alice (1969 film) taken at Trump’s 2005 wedding. With a little wife swap for a change. 🙂

But BEFORE I had a chance to post the above, I got todays’ “On This Day”- hit from Facebook . It was about a post I made on three years ago. Look at the photo I had included with that post in 2013:

I was flabbergasted. Because up until then, I was completely unaware of this date “coincidence,” “synchronicity,” “divine sign”… take your pick.

My pick? Divine guidance. Which worked because I followed my intuition.

UPDATE NOV 25, 2016

Post-Thanksgiving Editorial
(I did not want you to choke on your turkey so I held it back a day. But this actually came to me yesterday on Camelback Mtn)

PIMP OR WHORE?

Feeling bad you voted for Trump?  Don’t.  Hillary would have been MUCH worse.

Think of it this way… We could have had another New World Order whore in the White House. Instead, we’ve got a New World Order pimp.

Guess that’s progress in a bizarre way. America is moving up in the plutocratic hierarchy. The plutocrats are actually starting to run the show instead of using their proxies.

And no, I am not implying that Hillary is Donald’s bitch. She works for other New World Order pimps, like the ones shown below, with towels around their heads.

87bf0db422277aa877fa0c031c5924d1

That’s why Trump was not favored by the New World Order “elite.” Because he was one of them.  Another pimp.

In other words, competition. They could not control him. They feared that if he got to the White House, he may start to drain THEIR swamp and divert the water into HIS business empire. Which is now about to happen.

And where does that leave the Trump voters?

Same place as always – holding the bag. After all, we live in a plutocracy. And it’s the plutocrats who hold all the aces.

NWO “Elite” Will Adjust and Adapt

Meanwhile, just like with Reagan 35 years ago, the NWO “elite” will adjust and adapt. They will try to surround the president-elect with their own stooges.

Who knows… considering how empathetic Trump has suddenly become toward the Clintons, maybe he’ll even find a corner for Hillary to work on. Maybe in some Saudi brothel?  🙂 That might be actually better than American prison.

The question is what, if anything, will the awakened masses of Trump supporters do when they realize they have been betrayed?

My guess? Nothing at all.

For now, most of them are still being ostriches and living the illusion that all will be well once Trump is confirmed as president. It may take a year or even longer for the masses to realize they have been duped and played for patsies. Just as the other NWO whores played them (Obama, the Bush’s, Slick Willie).

ostrich-man-head-in-sand

By then, the mass emotions and energy will have evaporated. And apathy will set back in.  Look for 2018 midterm elections to produce the lowest turnout ever.

Apathy 2014 US turnout,jpg

No wonder Trump said dismissively on Nov 22, “they will get over it,”  when commenting about his broken promise to prosecute Hillary.

trump-hillary-for-prison-poster

“They?” Who might that be?

Guess that would be you and me. The sheeple. Or at least that’s how the plutocrats like Trump and his brethren perceive us, the American public. We are now about to be fleeced by a new pimp instead of an old whore.

Yeah,  we are moving up in the world.

UPDATE Nov 30, 2016

TRUMP DELIVERS TWO PUNCHES TO THE GUT OF HIS SUPPORTERS

President-elect dines with archenemy, then nominates former Goldman Sachs banker who used to work for George Soros and is a Hollywood insider to be his Treasury Secretary

If you voted for Donald Trump believing he would bring about real change, as this writer naively did, think again. During the last 24 hours, the president-elect delivered two punches to the gut of his Americans supporters.

His actions left no doubt that his populist rhetoric was just that – rhetoric, and that once in office, he will surround himself with the very same New World Order elitists his supporters voted against.

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-9-01-33-am

PRIVATE DINNER WITH ROMNEY

Trump dined last night in New York City with a man who called Trump a “fraud” and a “phony,” who said Trump’s words and actions were “degrading” to women, and who predicted Trump’s policies would trigger a recession, make America less safe and foster an era of “trickle-down racism.”

“I wanted my grandkids to see that I simply couldn’t ignore what Mr. Trump was saying and doing, which revealed a character and temperament unfit for the leader of the free world,” this man continued: “I know that some people are offended… but that’s how I can sleep at night.” (May 27, 2016)

Not that Trump was lost for words during the campaign when referring with derision to his last night’s dinner companion. President-elect labeled him a “stiff” and a “catastrophe” who had “choked like a dog” when he ran for president in 2012.

Yet that very man – Mitt Romney – is now the top contender for arguably the most important position in Trump’s cabinet – Secretary of State. Thus the reason for last night’s intimate private dinner.

Afterwards, Romney emerged from the dinner all smiles and sang effusive praises for his potential boss. He lavished Trump with compliments, praising “impressive” transition effort and “message of inclusion.”

And that’s the kind of brown-nosing that’s now helping him sleep at night? Don’t the turncoats like that make you sick to your stomach?

And no, I am not talking just about Romney. Because this morning, Trump delivered the second blow to the gut of his supporters.

TRUMP’S TURN ABOUT FACE: STEVEN MNUCHIN PICKED FOR TREASURY SECRETARY

If I say, Goldman Sachs – George Soros – Hollywood in the context of the presidential campaign, which candidate comes to your mind?

Hillary Clinton, of course.  All three were perceived as bulwarks of her base of support. All three were, therefore, despised by Trump supporters and shredded on the social media pages by Hillary’s detractors.

Yet now Trump has picked the man whose business DNA embodies all three – Goldman Sachs, George Soros and Hollywood. And, by the way, who is, unsurprisingly given the foregoing, also Jewish.

“Prior to being in charge of Trump’s campaign finances, Mnuchin served as an advisor,” according to “Meet the Jews in Donald Trump’s inner circle” article in the Nov 15 Times of Israel.

The New York Times describes the Mnuchins as one of Manhattan’s elite “most influential families.” Mnuchin and his father both got rich working at Goldman Sachs,” the Times said.

And the new Treasury Secretary nominee also made a name for himself as a second-generation Goldman Sachs partner who worked for George Soros before starting a hedge fund and buying IndyMac, a failing California bank that made billions while foreclosing on homeowners after the financial crisis.

WOLF SHEDDING THE SHEEP’S CLOTHING

During the campaign, Donald Trump said the system was rigged. He said hedge fund managers are “getting away with murder.” He said that he’d “tax Wall Street.” He called Washington D.C. corrupt and promised to “drain the swamp.” He said his opponent Hillary Clinton was too cozy with the banks, as epitomized by her closed-door paid speeches. He said Clinton’s vice presidential nominee, Tim Kaine, was “owned by the banks” and that he, Trump, would break them up. Trump closed his campaign with an ad bashing Goldman Sachs and George Soros, using classically anti-Semitic phrases.

And now, the president-elect has chosen a second-generation Goldman Sachs partner who worked for George Soros before starting a hedge fund and buying IndyMac, a failing California bank that made billions while foreclosing on homeowners after the financial crisis.

Steven Mnuchin’s takeover of IndyMac is a story about everything Americans have come to hate about how the financial crisis was allowed to unfold ― ordinary people panicking, savvy investors pouncing, a government guarantee that saved a bank but didn’t even try to keep people in their homes, a clever rebranding, rampant foreclosures, billions of dollars in profits.

And now, the cruel punchline: The man behind it is being nominated for treasury secretary by a self-proclaimed billionaire populist.

Fake populist, this writer might add.

Back in February, I penned the editorial, which asked, IS TRUMP ACTUALLY A “TROJAN HORSE?” And then on Oct 23, two weeks before the election, I also warned that we must, “STAY VIGILANT: LET’S NOT HAVE A REAGAN FIFTH COLUMN ENCORE,” as had happened when Ronald Reagan was elected president, only to be drowned out by the New World Order stooges he appointed to his cabinet.

And now, regrettably, history repeats itself. It may take the Trump supporters some time to realize what hit them. It’s not the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s an oncoming train called BETRAYAL.

HERE WE GO AGAIN, MORE “LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD”-CABINET APPOINTMENTS

Establishment Favorite James “Mad Dog” Mattis Sent to “Rein In” Trump

Donald Trump has selected the retired marine general James Mattis to be his nominee for secretary of defense. Mattis has deep wells of support on Capitol Hill and in the military, and his appointment comes with much establishment hope that he will be able to rein in Trump and bureaucratically neutralize Mike Flynn, the president-elect’s pick for national security adviser.

The retired general – nicknamed “Mad Dog” and known for his blunt remarks – would need a special waiver from Congress because he has not been out of uniform for the requisite seven years.

“DON’T VOTE” WON!

“Don’t vote – it only encourages them” accounted for 45% of the electorate

Lowest turnout in 20 years: A mountain shook, a mouse was born

After all the hoopla and frenzie the lamestream media whipped up over the 2016 election campaign had subsided and the dust had settled, turns out a mountain shook and a mouse was born. It was a tempest in a teapot. A rather large teapot, admittedly. 🙂

The same old, same old political apathy that won the day on November 8 as it did two years earlier (see DISGUST & APATHY: BIG WINNERS IN 2014 ELECTIONS – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-yV ).

Voter turnout this year dipped to nearly its lowest point in two decades.

While election officials are still tabulating ballots, the 126 million votes already counted means about 55% of voting age citizens cast ballots this year.

That measure of turnout is the lowest in a presidential election since 1996, when 53.5% of voting-age citizens turned out.

For more, see…

Voter turnout at 20-year low in 2016 @CNNPolitics http://cnn.it/2eKsQ2D

ALTZAR: I have to admit I am feeling rather sheepish after posting this story. Because for the first time ever, this year I voted for an establishment candidate.

Shame on me! I fell for the Trump bait and thus betrayed by own guidance and knowledge earned the hard way working as a war correspondent and geopolitical commentator for over a decade.

On the other hand, I am encouraged to see that 45% of us did not take the bait. Not Trump’s nor Hillary’s. They refused to partake in the political charade called the American “Demo Farce.” Ironically, that was the title of my Washington Times November 1996 column whose message I did not heed (http://www.truthinmedia.org/Columns/DEMO%20FARCE.html).

Guess I should sometimes listen to my own music, like Algernon Moncrieff, the main characters in Oscar Wilde’s play Importance of Being Earnest” (1895). 🙂

CHRISTIANITY UNDER SIEGE (II)

WHAT DO YOU SEE? WRITE A CAPTION TO THIS IMAGE…

3-sheeks-and-1-queen

What I see is a takeover of America by anti-Christian forces in the last quarter century or so using the duplicitous presidents of the United States to do their dirty work. New World Order religion

Of course, these traitors of America are not self-professed Muslims. Instead, they hide their true feelings in a closet and publicly pretend to be Christians. And since Donald Trump has very publicly spoken out in defense of Christians in America, they are panicking. For the end of their reign may be nigh. And a possibility of American Christians regaining their power is sending the money-worshipping New World Order leaders into apoplexy.

CHRISTIANITY IS UNDER SIEGE IN AMERICA: THIS WRITER AND DONALD TRUMP AGREE, HILLARY DOES NOT

christianity-under-siege-bob

Almost 19 years ago, I wrote a column for the Washington Times titled “CHRISTIANITY UNDER SIEGE.” It was published on Jan 4, 1998.  Here’s an excerpt:

Evidently, hate is back in vogue in America. But this time, hate is displaying its ugly face as a dictatorship of minorities. Incredibly perhaps, in a country which has been inhabited by a Christian majority for centuries, anti-Christian venom is being spread across America. And not just across America. It is a global anti-Christian virus being disseminated deliberately by the New World Order elite.”

bob_bg_2

donald_trump_siege

On January 18 of this year, speaking at the Liberty University in Virginia, Donald Trump used the exact same phrase:

“Christianity, it’s under siege,” Trump proclaimed early in his speech to a crowd of about 10,000. “We’re going to protect Christianity,” he said. “If you look at what’s going on throughout the world…Christianity is under siege.”

Okay, it’s pretty clear, therefore, that Trump and this writer see eye-to-eye on this issue. What about the other candidate (Hillary)?

Well, she takes the opposite view, of course. In a speech in New York in Apr 2015, she said that “Christians must deny their Faith through the enforcement of laws.” And that “change of Christian beliefs is the unfinished business of the 21st century.”

HILLARY AND CHELSEA CLINTON INTRODUCED QU’RAN, MUSLIM HOLIDAYS TO  WHITE HOUSE IN 1996

Hillary was openly pro-Muslim when she was the First Lady in the 1990s. Here’s an excerpt from “Ayatollah Klintonmeini“, an April 1996 Truth in Media editorial:

Hillary Clinton is the woman who proudly brought Islam into the White House (in 1996). And she is now running to return to the White House as our next president.

Naturally, this raises a lot of questions and generates anxieties across America, especially after 9/11, and after our sitting president, who was raised by a Muslim father in a Muslim country, fought the Congress tooth and nail to prohibit the families of the 9/11 victims from suing the Saudi government.

OBAMA, RAISED A MUSLIM, SAID in 2008 HILLARY NOT TO BE TRUSTED AND NOT FIT TO BE PRESIDENT

So where does Hillary really stand on Islam?

In a word – everywhere. Meaning, she has been talking out of both sides of her mouth on this issue as on everything else.

“She will say anything and change nothing. Hillary can’t be trusted and isn’t qualified to be President,” Obama said in 2008 when the two squared off in the Democratic Primary.

WHAT ARE HILLARY’S TRUE FEELINGS ABOUT ISLAM?

If elected, will she be America’s first openly pro-Islamic president?

In a Word – NO! Like All New World Order Leaders, Hillary Believes in Nothing; Except in the Almighty Dollar and the Power Money Can Buy

Why not?

Because in her heart, assuming she has one, Hillary is no more Muslim than she is Buddhist. Or Catholic.  Or Jewish. Or Scientologist…

People like Hillary or Obama or Bush’s are picked because they are trained believe in nothing (see my Washington Times Dec 1996 OpEd piece “The Nothing Philosophy“).

Well, nothing spiritual anyway. They believe only in money and power. Or more specifically, the power money can buy.  That’s what makes them such useful marionettes for the New World Order’s gray men to manipulate pulling their strings from behind the scene.

So if it’s money, and only money, that matters to people like Hillary, let’s follow the money trail…

Hillary-Clinton-Wall-Street

LOOK WHO IS BUYING THE ELECTION FOR HILLARY

Hillary’s love affair with Wall Street money and moguls is well known and documented, including by the Truth in Media (see HILLARY TRYING TO CATCH UP TO OBAMA IN WALL STREET SPONSORSHIP, July 25, 2015, http://wp.me/p3QU1S-15J).  So let’s focus here on some of her foreign donors.

It so happens, that many of Clinton’s largest financial supporters are middle-eastern Muslims, thus the impression that she is an Islamophile.  But she and her foundation have also received money from Mexico, Turkey and even Russia.

Never mind that foreign political contributions are ILLEGAL.  In a corrupt society, nothing is illegal. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. The Clintons are certainly showing the nation how to flaunt the law.

Take a look at some of the people and foreign countries who are buying Hillary’s election.

QATAR Dictatorship Which Supports ISIS and Al Qaeda Gave $1 Million to Bill Clinton as “Birthday Gift” for 5-min Meeting

  • In April 2012, representatives from Qatar wanted to get “five minutes” with former President Bill Clinton while in New York to present him with a $1 million check for his foundation as a “birthday gift.” (The New York Times, Oct 15, 2016 –  Email About Qatari Offer Shows Thorny Ethical Issues Clinton Foundation Faced –  http://nyti.ms/2e8ngsB). And Qatar, a country which supports ISIS and Al Qaeda, also contributed between $1 and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation. 

 


Saudi regime and other Gulf tyrannies donate millions to the Clinton Foundation 

  • The Saudi regime by itself has donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation, with donations coming as late as 2014, as she prepared her presidential run.
  • A group called “Friends of Saudi Arabia,” co-founded “by a Saudi Prince,” gave an additional amount between $1 million and $5 million.
  • The Clinton Foundation says that between $1 million and $5 million was also donated by “the State of Qatar.”
  • The United Arab Emirates, and the government of Brunei.
  • “The State of Kuwait” has donated between $5 million and $10 million.

Mexico’s richest man and largest New York Times shareholder gives millions to the Clintons

  • Talk about double corruption and collusion. Mexico’s richest man, Carlos Slim, who gave millions to the Clinton Foundation and in campaign contributions, is also the largest shareholder of one of the most prominent lamestream media whores – the New York Times. And then we wonder why the lamestream media are so overtly pro-Clinton and anti-Trump?

HILLARY: THE MOST CORRUPT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN HISTORY OF THE U.S.

Add to it the collusion between Hillary and the State Department and the FBI (Justice Dept), and then you will understand why Newt Gingrich said on Fox News on Friday:

“Hillary Clinton is THE most corrupt candidate ever to run for president of the United States” (Newt Gingrich, Oct 14, 2016 on Fox News, @12:15 mins).

screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-8-45-00-pmDON’T TRUST THE LIBERAL MEDIA POLLS

According to the liberal media polls, Hillary is leading Trump across the country. Which is why Gingrich also warned not to trust the lamestream media whores’ polls.

“The year John Engler won the race against the incumbent (Michigan) governor, on Sunday morning before the (Tuesday) election, the Detroit liberal paper came out and said that Engler was going to lose by 14 points,” Gingrich said (Oct 14). “Two days later, he won by 1 point. It’s a 15-point spread.” [Gingrich, Fox News – https://youtu.be/W9msnfCR4OE, 17:00 min].

Of course, they were trying to depress the Republicans, trying get them to stay home, Gingrich explained. It did not work. Just as the major media polls in Britain about the now famous Brexit in June were wrong. And not just there…

Pollsters have been misfiring around the world for more than two years now. They incorrectly forecast the 2014 US midterm elections, plus elections in Turkey, Scotland, Canada, and Israel. Besides Brexit, they also got Greece wrong—not once, but twice.

Finally, the pollsters were wrong about Trump winning the primaries and the Republican nomination.

Bottom line? Ignore the liberal media polls. Go to the polls on Nov 7 and vote your conscience.

Hopefully, it won’t be for the most corrupt candidate in the United States history,  an anti-Christian indebted to Muslim dictatorships which finance America’s worst enemies, who now wants to be the boss of all of us.

“Voting for Hillary would be like voting for a national suicide,” I told a banking friend today over lunch.

“But there are a lot of ignorant people in our country after half a century of being dumbed-down by the forces of the New World Order,” I added. “So we’ll see.”

APPENDIX A

What are Hillary’s true feelings about Islam? If elected, will she be America’s first openly pro-Islamic president?

In a Word – NO! Like All New World Order Leaders, Hillary Believes in Nothing; Except the Almighty Dollar and the Power Money Can Buy

HILLARY AND CHELSEA CLINTON INTRODUCED QU’RAN, MUSLIM HOLIDAYS TO  WHITE HOUSE IN 1996

Hillary was openly pro-Muslim when she was the First Lady in the 1990s. Here’s an excerpt from that “Ayatollah Klintonmeini“, an Apr 1996 Truth in Media editorial:

“I have to admit that a good deal of what my husband and I have learned (about sotu-guest-9_c0-133-1984-1289_s561x327Islam) has come from my daughter,” said Hillary Clinton, addressing the members of the American Muslim Council (AMC) at the first-ever White House celebration of Eid al-Fitr (a Muslim religious holiday) on February 20, 1996.

“(As) some of you who are our friends know, she (Chelsea) took a course last year in Islamic history.”

So Chelsea has been educating her parents about Islam ever since, the First Lady explained. As she accepted the two AMC gifts of Qur’an, the Muslim holy book, Mrs. Clinton said:

Hillary MuslmI am honored to have these gifts (of Qur’an)… one for my husband, and one for me, as Chelsea already has her copy.” (Feb 1996)

Meanwhile, Steven Emerson, producer of the PBS documentary, “Jihad in America,” said in his Wall Street Journal OpEd column, published on March 13, 1996, that “AMC is a radical group that supports radical Islamic terrorist movements.” AMC’s own newsletter says its “primary goal is political advocacy.”

In other words, while Islamic terrorists blow up the World Trade Center (in 1993), for example, not to mention their hijacking, killing and maiming of Americans overseas, the Clinton family reveled in celebrating Islam at the White House.

The brewing scandal involving her top aide Huma Abedin’s alleged links to Muslim Brotherhood, who has also been accused of receiving overpayments while at State Department (see below), awakened some old memories in the Truth in Media editor’s mind.

So there you have it, a woman who brought Islam into the White House now wants to return to the White House as our next president.

img_0427Hillary & AbedinHow do you suppose that would sit with the families of the 9/11 victims, or of the thousands of American soldiers who perished and are still dying during the never-ending “War on Terror?”

How do you suppose they would react to having a woman as their chief commanding officer who has been a decades long sympathizer of Islamic radicals? And who still maintains a close personal relationship with one of them? (Huma Abedin).

Meanwhile, if the Clintons were to use their Qur’ans for more than just as library shelf stuffers, they may find themselves in danger of flogging, being stoned or “thrown from high places”, according to Islamic laws. And not just because of their sexual transgressions which made their White House look like a whorehouse.

Which is why it is hard to believe that any self-respecting Muslim would rejoice to see a woman of Hillary Clinton’s character return to the White House, this time as president. God forbid.

CONCLUSION: Like All New World Order Leaders, Hillary Believes in Nothing; Except the Almighty Dollar and the Power Money Can Buy

The answer to that question is a definite NO. No, if elected, Hillary would not be America’s first pro-Islamic president. Because all of her predecessors already were. It’s just that since 9/11, they’ve been forced into a closet.

3-sheeks-and-1-queen

Second, because all New World Order White House occupants have only one religion: The Almighty Dollar.

They “worship the Almighty Dollar, son of Usury, enslaver of Free Man, in shrines like Wall Street.” (from “Dancing ‘Round the Golden Calf,” Washington Times, Aug 1997).

Everything else is posturing. One day, they may appear pro-Muslim. The next, pro-Jewish. Or pro-Christian. Or pro-Voodoo. Because anything goes as long as they can gain and hold on to power to rule and lord over other men and women.

So it seems apt to close with this excerpt from my OpEd piece “The Nothing Philosophy,” Washington Times, Dec 1996. It is a dialogue between a reporter and an adherent of the New World Order “religion” who goes by the name Levi Desnic (a ‘Lefty Rightwing’ in loose translation from Serbian):

“But surely, you must believe in something?’

‘I believe in the same thing Clinton believes in,’ Levi Desnic replies.

‘Oh, yeah? And what is that?’

‘The Almighty Dollar.’

‘The Almighty Dollar?’

‘Or a Deutsch Mark… Or a Yen… We are not that particular. We’ll take anything Wall Street gives us. It’s the money that makes the world go around, man! Crosses, crescents, flags, anthems… these are all archaic symbols for the backward masses. In our New World, we’ll do away with all of them.’

‘The masses or the symbols?’

ABEDIN IS NO STRANGER TO CONTROVERSY, AND NEITHER ARE THE CLINTONS

OOPSIE DAISY: ANOTHER “CRIMINAL” EPITHET ATTACHED TO HILLARY CLINTON, COULD OPEN AN OLD CAN OF (ISLAMIC) WORMS

WASHINGTON, Aug 1, 2015 – The finding that Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton confidante who now serves as vice chairwoman of her presidential campaign, had improperly collected taxpayer money could prove damaging to Clinton’s candidacy, as Republicans charge that government rules were routinely bent to benefit Clinton and her aides.

Anthony Weiner, Abedin’s ex-husband, a former member of the House of Representatives, resigned in disgrace in June 2011 after he sent dirty texts to one and possibly more women including a 21-year-old female co-ed in Seattle who received a photo of his erect penis inside his boxer shorts.

ABEDIN”S TIES TO MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

If only Abedin and her husband’s sex scandal were the worst of it. This Clinton aide is also accused of links to Muslim Brotherhood.

The Accuracy in Media reported in July 2013 that Abedin worked for many years at a journal that promotes Islamic-supremacist ideology that was founded by a top al-Qaeda financier, Abdullah Omar Naseef. Naseef ran the Rabita Trust, a formally designated foreign terrorist organization under American law. Ms. Abedin and Naseef overlapped at the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA) for at least seven years.

Although born in the United States, Huma Abedin grew up in Saudi Arabia, intellectual and financial home of Wahhabism, one of the most extreme forms of Islam.

ABEDIN & MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD: http://www.aim.org/guest-column/the-huma-unmentionables/

An Excerpt from the Accuracy in Media editorial (July 25, 2013):

“When a handful of House conservatives tried to draw the attention of the State Department’s inspector general to some of these matters – wondering how on earth someone with Ms. Abdein’s background could have qualified for a top-secret security clearance – they were castigated by the Obama White House and the Beltway Republican establishment.

As reaffirmed in the last 24 hours, Ms. Abedin’s connections to prominent Islamic-supremacist figures and groups are deemed unsuitable for public discussion – Egyptians may be able to eject the Muslim Brotherhood, but in today’s Washington it is raising questions about the Muslim Brotherhood that gets you run out of town.

HumaAbedSalehaAbedinHillaryClintonNaturally, what did get Washington chattering was a scandal far more typical in Clinton circles — the lucrative arrangement Ms. Abedin struck with Mrs. Clinton’s State Department that allowed her, after returning from maternity leave, to draw a $135,000 State Department salary while remaining in New York, not actually working at Foggy Bottom, and moonlighting as a “strategic consultant” for an outfit called Teneo – founded by Bill Clinton’s chum Doug Band.

What a racket. The marriage to Huma Abedin, a Clinton insider, enables Anthony Weiner to resurrect a debased career and deflect attention from his psychotic antics even as he continues them. The marriage to Anthony Weiner, a prominent Jewish progressive, enables Huma Abedin to deflect attention from her associations with various Islamic supremacists even as, during her tenure as a top State Department official, American policy embraces Islamic supremacists.”

Obama Muslim connection muslim-brotherhoodEverybody knows that Barack Hussein Obama’s father was a Muslim. Hussein is a Muslim name, which comes from the name of Ali’s son–Hussein Ibn Ali.

Which is perhaps why America’s sitting president is often accused of being a closet Muslim. The image on the right is just a random sampling of the many stories published on that topic.

Tim cartoonRiyadhBush-Unocal-EnronEverybody also knows that the Bush family have deep ties with Arab oil money and sheiks, including the Bin Laden family.

During my frequent visits to the State Department and the US embassy in Belgrade, Serbia, in the early 1990s, I saw firsthand that the place was stacked with pro-Islamic officials.

It was for that reason that in Jan 1993, yes over 22 years ago (!), 17 years before this writer got his first Photoshop software, that the Truth in Media editor designed and published this crude Bush White House cartoon (right).

The cartoon suggested hyperbolically that our capital had shifted to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It also depicted our current form of government as a PLUTOCRACY.

The article was published during the waning days of George H. Bush’s reign, just before Bill Clinton’s presidency began. The green “Chelsea Mosque” was added to the White House in April 1996 (for reason why, read on).
