“FOLLOW THE MONEY”
by Michael Gaddy, ©2016, blogging at The Rebel Madman
(Jun. 1, 2016) — Author’s note: I fully realize my words below will anger and upset many. As a student of history, I have arrived at my beliefs based on the actions and interactions of politicians and their financial supporters throughout recorded history. I believe the people of this country who are actively engaged in the electoral process are simply characters being manipulated by the powers that be. Oh, how I hope that I am wrong; no one would be more pleased if that proves to be true. Regardless, I would be remiss if I did not offer my thoughts as written below.
There is an old admonition which we all have heard but seldom if ever apply it to the problems we see happening more and more frequently, especially those issues related to the destruction of our country. That admonition would be “follow the money.”
Nowhere could that be more relevant today than in the examination of the two presumed candidates for president in this year’s election. If the situation progresses as predicted, we will have a billionaire opposing a woman who is paid $250,000 an hour to talk but refuses to release what she talks about. Both are vying to be the supposed leader of this country.
There are people who will vote for Trump, not because he will honor his oath to our Constitution but because they believe he will completely destroy our liberty at a slower pace than Hillary. Kind of like hoping if one gets cancer it will be the lingering, more debilitating type rather than the one that takes you quickly. Situationally correct political banners would read: “Kill Freedom Now, Vote Hillary” or “Trump, the Masochists’ Choice for Prez.”
What about the warning “follow the money” do the voters in this country not understand? We the people have long since been governed by an apparatus we call government, which is totally owned and totally controlled by the moneyed elite. We could have a totally honest person who has a complete working knowledge of our Constitution and Bill of Rights run for any federal elected office and they would not have a snowball’s chance in hell of being elected for two very important reasons.
First, that person could never gather the necessary support of the people. That, in and of itself is the most damning evidence our government and the majority of the people do not want the constitutional republic our founders ratified in 1788-89.
Second, the moneyed elite and the media they own and control would never allow such a candidate to gain the necessary support and if it appeared they might, they or members of their family would meet an untimely accident or would be threatened with one. The Mafia or drug cartels do not allow people to continue to exist who interfere with their criminal pursuits—the same is true in today’s power cabal.
The political landscape we now face should be most concerning to anyone who cherishes individual liberty. Millions upon millions of voters in this country are most proud of their support for two candidates on the left who are open and proud national socialists with one being slightly more Marxist than the other who leans more toward Hitler’s socialist agenda. These two socialists represent the form(s) of government whose stated goal is the destruction of all representative republics, individual and states rights.
On the other supposed side of the political spectrum, we have a member of the moneyed elite who continues to grow in popularity, not because he represents the Constitution and Bill of Rights, but because people see this candidate attacked by those they hate on the political stage. Trump has not mentioned the constitutional limits on the executive but he has mentioned building a wall on our borders. Do those who support Trump actually understand the building of a wall would require the consent of Congress, the same Congress which for the better part of four decades has fought for open borders? Would these voters support Trump violating the Constitution to build such a wall? If so, then how do they differ from the voters who support their socialist candidate violating the Constitution and the laws of morality to allow perverts in the restrooms and showers with their wives, daughters and granddaughters, or perpetual wars for peace?
Trump has said he would put “boots on the ground” in Syria to fight ISIS. Does he understand the Constitution he will swear an oath to “protect and defend” does not allow him such latitude operating on his own? Is he unaware of the multitude of people who should know, including Lt. General Michael Flynn, former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, who claim unequivocally that our government created and funded ISIS? Why is it Americans support the troops who love and promote unconstitutional war but ignore the ones who reveal the criminality of our government?
Trump is constantly attacked by the media. Therefore, the people believe him to be an acceptable candidate for president. The press has to understand that with each new attack on Trump, they increase his support, yet they continue to attack. Now, why would you knowingly continue to help the candidate you so oppose?
So-called “conservatives” in this country love to hate the Socialist George Soros. Soros continues to openly recruit and finance protestors who create havoc at Trump rallies. Each of these demonstrations brings more people into the Trump camp. Now, why would Soros help recruit supporters for Trump? Is he the sly fox pretending to oppose Trump while increasing his support? Why are many of his violent protestors who destroy police cars and private property not arrested and tried for their crimes?
As an individual, trash or set fire to a police vehicle or throw rocks at police and destroy convention center doors and windows and walk away without an arrest or charges, much less without being shot in today’s police state environment. Never happen you say. Then why are Soros’ paid protestors allowed to do so with impunity such as recently happened in Albuquerque, New Mexico and other major cities?
In the last two presidential elections, 2008 and 2012, the top financial contributor to both candidates in those elections was Goldman-Sachs. Trump attacked Goldman-Sachs for their support of both Hillary and “lying” Ted Cruz, but when it appeared Trump was the presumptive republican nominee, he hired a former foreclosure king and Goldman-Sachs partner of 17 years to lead his fundraising effort. Steven Mnuchin was with Goldman-Sachs when his employer supported both presidential candidates in 2008 and 2012 and when they received a massive transfusion of taxpayer dollars.
If you are willing to overlook this possible connection between Trump and the moneyed elite at Goldman-Sachs, then you probably never knew or have forgotten that Goldman Sachs received 12.9 billion dollars in the financial “bailouts” funded by the US taxpayers. Goldman claimed it was “fully collateralized and hedged,” but took the almost 13 billion anyway. Could this have simply been a political payoff for services rendered?
Any association between a political candidate and the banking industry/cartel should be immediate cause for concern, but such concerns involving Trump seem to flow off his supporters like water off a duck.
Simply stated, the American voter is being duped again; Trump was brought into the process to re-energize the voting public which had dropped out of the 2012 election process by the tens of millions. A government that can’t generate support from the electorate will be quickly viewed as impotent. The power cabal of international bankers and other moneyed elite in this country could not allow such lack of support to continue. Thus, a populist who is hated by the media, the illegal alien community and despots such as George Soros had to be created. The “enemy of my enemy is my friend” is the strategy now being employed by the criminal cabal that runs this country. The millions who support either side in this purposely created political theater are the victims of a massive fraud.
Regardless of who wins the 2016 presidential election, there will be no significant change in the direction our criminal government pursues over the next 4-8 years. The majority are being lulled to sleep with another act of political theater.
H.L. Mencken was totally correct when he defined “Every election as sort of an advance auction sale of stolen goods.” This one is no different. The goods being stolen are not only your money, but your freedom and liberty as well.
You can never, no matter how much you rationalize your actions, support our Constitution and Bill of Rights by supporting with money or a vote a candidate who has no intention of abiding by the limitations of those documents! All your vote will ever accomplish is more socialism.
“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies… is a foolish idea. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.” ~ Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, The History of the World in Our Time.
