I continue to be amazed at Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) and its ability to transform people and institutions who once appeared objective and rational. Finding any kind of sane analysis outside this polarizing madness is difficult.
This piece I read yesterday strikes a nerve in a good way because its author disdains both parties. Only when one acknowledges the total corruption of body politic can one begin to see clearly what’s developing.
Here’s a bit from the piece by Charles Smith that resonated with me describing how Hillary and the Democrats got into bed with the alphabet agencies:
To aid their mono-maniacal campaign, the Democrats partnered with the most anti-Democratic and corrupting force in America, the alphabet agencies of Imperial Pretensions, the CIA et al., who are institutionally bound to view the citizenry’s right to choose its government and its government’s policies with utter disdain: we rule the Empire, and democracy is only acceptable as long as it rubber-stamps our rule.
This aligned perfectly with the Clinton dynasty’s view, and so the unending campaign to unseat The Donald was launched.
For better or worse, this unholy alliance put the Democratic Party’s legitimacy on the gambling table. The Democratic Party, whether it accepts or understands this reality or not, has devolved to an absurdist cable-channel devoted exclusively to unseating The Donald, regardless of the cost and regardless of the sacrifices required to pursue what is increasingly a quixotically misguided venture.
Wittingly or unwittingly, every institution allied with the Democrats has also put its legitimacy on the gaming table, the most important of which is the mainstream media, including the quasi-public Propaganda Broadcast Service (PBS). The corporate media and PBS have been reduced to late-night TV programming, selling the same flimsy gadgets with the same tired pitch: “But wait–there’s more!”
All of which leads us to the question: will the Clintons destroy the Democratic Party, or perhaps even more saliently: have the Clintons already sealed the fate of the Democratic Party?
What happened before and after the presidential election of 2016 needs a total and honest accounting. The problem is all our institutions that provide checks and balances are corrupt. ALL OF THEM.
A great message for the US electorate to send in 2020 if the options are as deplorable as 2016 would be a national boycott of the elections. Don’t vote for them. Don’t give them legitimacy. The public literally has little to no say in the legislative outcomes that govern us, so why give these sociopaths the pleasure of our consent over this sham?
Or not, and hope impeachment gives you the easy way out. Suckers.
