TRUMP AND BEYOND
I thought a recent Trump video link below especially helpful, insightful, as his crowds are NOT manufactured like ALL other "candidates," especially FAKE, ERSATZ, Karl Rove/Soros/NOW a Pope thrown into the bargain for good measure, Born Again, oxymoron, Democratic Socialist Sanders and suckers following him.
However, only 2 basic themes, parts, of Trump's campaign issues, points, are THE ones garnering MOST, if not ALL, his support and attention namely--
TRADE DEALS and MANUFACTURING JOB LOSS, and, comments on a rigged party primary system.
The rest basically represents garbage, nonsense, including his Great Wall, educational reforms, etc.
Remember, a "tear down this wall" slogan used by someone truly deplorable, which, at that time, our NAZI PROPAGANDISTS argued was to keep people in, not out, said they.
Trump, in another rally, even FALSELY characterized Sanders as a "Communist," AN EQUAL LIE, FARTHEST FROM THE TRUTH AND TRUMP KNOWS IT full well!!
LIKE ISIS, a Saudi manufactured group of mercenaries and provocateurs.
The US IS NOT and NEVER WAS GREAT as Trump asserts--except POST WWII, THE GREATEST REACTIONARY FORCE ON PLANET EARTH, a job they inherited as a consequence of a VERY prostrate Europe, CONTINUING TO THIS VERY DAY.
The rest of what he says being empty rhetoric, propaganda, mythology, NOT HISTORY!
NYC values has much to do with LIBERAL philosophy necessitated by its eclectic, amorphous, polyglot, cosmopolitan, population, often denigrated elsewhere as a US Sodom and Gomorrah.
BUT, ALSO, NY CITY, had, as I indicated in previous posts, a CITY SYSTEM of FREE QUALITY HIGHER EDUCATION, COLLEGE, for all ITS citizens, extensive public transportation, a MILLION OR SO RENT CONTROLLED APTS, A NATIONAL CENTER OF PUBLISHING, HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF USED AND NEW DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN BOOK STORES, INEXPENSIVE, INDEPENDENT, FOREIGN FILM OUTLETS, FOOD, ART, a vast cultural phenomena and a WORKING CLASS CITY with LARGE TRADE UNIONS and manufacturing.
STILL, with that above, NYC had extensive POVERTY, slums, ghettos, and NO NATIONALIZED INDUSTRIES.
ABOVE bonuses NO LONGER exist.
Trump is a beneficiary of a NYC REAL ESTATE MASTER PLAN for SPECULATION, LUXURY DEVELOPMENT, CONDOS, playground of the rich and wealthy, which helped END ALL those nice little perks.
NYC rents now simply being too exorbitant for low incomes, businesses, bookstores, art, food, movies, life, anything.
Comparable real estate development occurs NOW in another DEMOCRATICALLY controlled City hosting their national convention in July in Philadelphia.
Rest assured NOBODY outside or inside will challenge their PRECEDING real estate and TAX POLICIES of virtually FREE FEDERAL STIMULUS MONIES used to finance this ARTIFICIALLY MANUFACTURED REAL ESTATE BOOM AS WELL AS 10 YEAR LOCAL REAL ESTATE TAX ABATEMENTS.
LOCAL REAL ESTATE VALUES MULTIPLIED BY FACTORS OF 10 OR MORE OVERNIGHT along with TAXES for EVERYONE ELSE.
I can NOT vouch for these ESTIMATES, but, I believe, local tax relief for LUXURY housing represents a loss to the City in the range of 90 MILLION annually, plus or minus, more or less!
That's alot for a RELATIVELY SMALL City bleeding financially and constantly moaning about its school system funding, which, like ALL others, relies predominantly, heavily, on REAL ESTATE TAX.
So, everyone else must offset, supplement, preceding LOSS!
Additionally, as I have indicated, MONSTER, TWIN, FRANKENSTEIN, PRIVATE, CABLE AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS COMPANIES VERIZON AND COMCAST PAY NO FEES TO RIP UP CITY STREETS PROVIDING REDUNDANT, EXORBITANT, CRAPPY, BROADBAND SERVICES when MUNICIPAL BROADBAND COULD HAVE EXISTED!
I also DEPLORE removal of PUBLIC pay phones with land lines--a BIG mistake, very shortsighted.
These are just a few of the more egregious highlights.
ALL PRIVATE INDUSTRY FEEDS OFF THE TROUGH, SUBSIDIES, POLICIES, OF STATE TAXPAYER MONIES.
THE STATE CONSTANTLY SUBSIDIZES PRIVATE PROFIT, ALL THE TIME!
Real estate being a PRIMARY one.
Industrial agriculture, another.
Of course, energy.
Foreign direct investment and so on.
The US FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, THUS, TAXPAYER MONIES, for example, subsidize ALL PRIVATE INSURANCE from an OBOOMACARE boondoggle, gift, to PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANIES TO WHAT IS CALLED FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC, GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIZED, GUARANTEED, MORTGAGE PROGRAMS (as well as Federal Income Tax homeowners deductions) FOR PRIVATE HOUSING PURCHASES.
Then, there is HOMEOWNERS AND PROPERTY INSURANCE.
The US GOVERNMENT ULTIMATELY INSURES THESE COMPANIES WHEN MASSIVE LOSS OCCURS, major catastrophes, damages, of one or another sort, floods, fires, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, whatever.
The US government is the PAYER OF LAST RESORT DIRECTLY TO THESE COMPANIES, but, NOT individuals, per se.
We do NOT need these PRIVATE companies.
The money could go directly to US GOVERNMENT coffers.
MILITARY PRODUCTION, which is totally wasteful, predicated upon instruments of death and destruction, AND, ITS HUMAN LABOR FORCE, BEING ANOTHER MAJOR RECIPIENT OF TAXPAYER LARGESSE.
Trump's solutions are predicated upon GLOBAL MILITARY DOMINANCE, HEGEMONY.
The US will return to THE MIDEAST regardless of WHO is in office, as well as elsewhere around the globe, including sub-Saharan Africa, an area I do NOT discuss much BUT another battleground of PRIVATE CAPITAL INTERESTS and CHINA.
The USA military is NOT defensive--we have NO external enemies knocking on our doorstep, ready to invade, ALTHOUGH WE WILL NOW.
IT IS AN OFFENSIVE, IMPERIALIST, COLONIAL, POWER PROJECTION.
So, look upon these people below and realize he/they use patriotism, America First, trade protectionism, jingoism, etc., ULTIMATELY TO FILL THE NEEDS OF IMPERIALIST POWER PROJECTION with BODIES.
To do that, one MUST have SOME DOMESTIC PRODUCTION and make them believe they have a vested interest in fighting for something tangible as well as being less dependent upon foreign, external, sources of energy, industry, etc., since that can be used as weapons against us/them.
But, all this happens BECAUSE the N WORD, nationalization, can NOT be found by ANYONE HERE, least of all our FAKE OPPOSITION.
So, we have nationalism instead.
This thanks MOSTLY, PREDOMINANTLY, TO NAZI PARTNERED LABOR UNIONS AND POLICIES ABOVE WHICH NOBODY WANTS TO CHALLENGE, CHANGE, OR, CONFRONT.
I can assure everyone, these policies will NOT have the simple desired outcomes as Trump suggests because we can NOT as a country, species, exist any longer without being able to allocate limited, scarce, resources based on NEED, PLANNING, conservation, a COMMAND ECONOMY, not greed, an endless bottom line called the GDP and a PROFITABLE production pit for SHAREHOLDER VALUE.
The WORLD simply to become an ENDLESS BATTLE GROUND with competing, conflicting, CONTRADICTORY, ECONOMIC forces, shifting trade and military alliances, insurgencies, liberation and occupation movements, labor strife, AND, NATURAL DISASTER for good measure:
From JUNE, 2004 I featured video below in earlier posts, but, as reminder, I do it again.
This is the sort of ORWELLIAN world these CERTIFIABLY INSANE project to DEFEND and EXPAND THEIR NAZI LUNATIC FRINGE PRIVATE PROFIT SYSTEM:
