It’s discouraging to watch so many people being led around by duplicitous corporate media, obsessively focusing ALL their psychic energy on the latest distraction. This week’s edition is TRUMP’s TAXES!!! OH MY GOD DID YOU HEAR HE ONLY SPENT…
To highlight how this works, I’m going to pick on former State representative Mike Jopek, who represented the 4th District from 2004-2011 and might stop responding to my tweets after this post:
Since Mike asked, I happily provided this link about how Deutsche Bank is laundering cartel money and helped to fund ISIS, but in the stunted mind of someone suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, Mike was only able to muster this sad response:
What Mike Jopek is referring to when he says “tax cheat-in-chief” is the ten thousand word New York Times piece about the holy grail of the resistance, TRUMP’s TAXES!!!
Unfortunately, what Mike Jopek and so many other Democrat supporters are missing as they go apoplectic over this NYT piece is the utter corruption of the two criminal syndicates operating under the guise of “Democrats” and “Republicans” and how this corrupt system is propped up by media whores like the Grey Lady, the “paper of record” that is conveniently ignoring how Julian Assange is rotting in prison because Wikileaks has done more to expose this bipartisan corruption than any of our legacy media outlets would dare.
To show you what I am talking about, let’s take a look at what Wikileaks exposed regarding how deeply Obama was in the pockets of the banksters from the very beginning. From the link:
The most important revelation in the WikiLeaks dump of John Podesta’s emails has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton. The messages go all the way back to 2008, when Podesta served as co-chair of President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team. And a month before the election, the key staffing for that future administration was almost entirely in place, revealing that some of the most crucial decisions an administration can make occur well before a vote has been cast.
Michael Froman, who is now U.S. trade representative but at the time was an executive at Citigroup, wrote an email to Podesta on October 6, 2008, with the subject “Lists.” Froman used a Citigroup email address. He attached three documents: a list of women for top administration jobs, a list of non-white candidates, and a sample outline of 31 cabinet-level positions and who would fill them. “The lists will continue to grow,” Froman wrote to Podesta, “but these are the names to date that seem to be coming up as recommended by various sources for senior level jobs.”
The cabinet list ended up being almost entirely on the money. It correctly identified Eric Holder for the Justice Department, Janet Napolitano for Homeland Security, Robert Gates for Defense, Rahm Emanuel for chief of staff, Peter Orszag for the Office of Management and Budget, Arne Duncan for Education, Eric Shinseki for Veterans Affairs, Kathleen Sebelius for Health and Human Services, Melody Barnes for the Domestic Policy Council, and more. For the Treasury, three possibilities were on the list: Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, and Timothy Geithner.
Since partisans appear to be in hermetically sealed bubbles these days, I don’t expect this information will have any impact. Even when more evidence emerges that Russiagate was a criminal operation carried out by officials at the highest levels of the Obama administration, I don’t expect partisan Democrats to be able to contextualize the seriousness of what these elements within the FBI, CIA and the DOJ did, and how dangerous it will be if they aren’t held accountable.
And how can they be held accountable when the other side is just as corrupt? William Barr is a known fixer going back to the Iran/Contra days, and his daddy, Donald Barr, used his position at the elite Dalton school to get Jeffrey Epstein a job.
The benefits of understanding how far this corruption reaches is that I don’t waste as much energy following the two minutes of hate routine dictated to me by corporate media, and I’m insulated from the false solution that voting for one cartel over the other–known as picking the lesser evil–will do a damn thing to stop these sociopaths from exploiting our fear to snatch more power for themselves.
