This Election Is the Biggest Threat to the Aristocracy

& Biggest Opportunity for Voters, since at least 1932

opinion with documentation, from Eric Zuesse

The historical significance of the 2016 U.S. Presidential contest isn’t yet generally recognized. Consider the evidence regarding this historical significance, in the links that will be provided here, and from which the argument here is constructed:

For the first time ever, a Republican campaign ad against Hillary Clinton is entirely truthful about her and focuses on the most important issue facing voters:

For the first time since 1932, an American Presidential campaign presents an opportunity for the public to overthrow the aristocracy

And, for the first time in U.S. history, a realistic possibility exists that the voters’ choice between the two Parties’ Presidential nominees might turn out to be between two enemies of the aristocracy: Bernie Sanders versus Donald Trump.

However, if it turns out instead to be between Trump v. Clinton, then what will be the aristocratic backing of each?

On Clinton’s side will be Wall Street — and this includes the ‘shadow banks’ (the non-“bank” sellers of what Bill Clinton and the Republicans caused to become unregulated credit derivatives), from which Hillary Clinton is also receiving donations, and from which the Clinton Foundation is supported and overseen — along with other Clinton funders).

Clearly, this is the first Presidential contest since 1932 in which the interests of the aristocracy versus the interests of the public will be presented to the voters, for them to decide which of the two sides they’re actually on.

And, if the election turns out to be between Trump versus Sanders, then this will be the first U.S. Presidential election ever in which both of the major-Party nominees will have committed themselves to policies (Trump clearly on foreign affairs, Sanders clearly on domestic affairs) that the aristocracy vigorously oppose, and that present a severe threat to the aristocrats’ continued rule of the country.

    How come not a single investigative jornalist was able to provide trancripts of her over-paide speeches to the banksters?

    This is a pivotal historical election without a doubt and the mass of Americans, Democrats in particular, don’t get it. The right is energized by its religious idiocy, but the left is mired in cynicism. They aren’t doing the primaries like they would if they believed the system worked. They keep on bitching, but maybe they will actually start to do something, like challenge the electoral process and the corrupt Democratic party establishment and get Bernie Sanders into office. We’re in big trouble. That’s a great anti-Hillary ad, Eric!

      I’m worried about the consequences of Trump’s Chicago rally cancellation.. I’ve read he has benn planned to cancel days ago, lied about the Chicago PD thing and knew anout the Sanders supporters very open action. I’vr lso read Rahm could have a thig to say behind. My concern is after 2 days of bad press cover including the WaPo, Clinton’s is away of the healines and all targets are pointed to Sanders for bad reasons. It’s like Trump is paying her back the favor she made him but not calling him out directly about his responsabily towars his bully supporters. so,close to important votation states, this tarnish of Sanders can be a turn down. Sorry my bad english and long post, Can you provide clarifications? Was this all orchestred, like it seems? How will ppl stop making the approach of lefties and trumps extreme violent actions??

  • Sorry Mr. Eric Zuesse. We have a ruling class and ‘ONE’ war party running the criminal organization in and out of D.C.! Here is novel, and time tested and proven method if the states would simply study history.

    Mar 12, 2016 Nullify Chapter 21: Nullification was not “Settled in 1865”

    Whenever states take action to resist federal laws, some condescending person is bound to say, “This was settled in 1865. The nullifiers lost.” But they’ve got it backwards.

    It’s a wonderful fantasy. But we’re talking about a tight group with the money and power to buy and sell anyone and anything. These are the people who murdered a PRESIDENT (JFK) and a candidate (RFK) who rocked the boat. Do you seriously believe that they’ll just stand by and allow themselves to be “overthrown?”

    the only threat to the aristocracy will be to have the entire population of the u.s descend on d.c and arrest them all. this won’t happen due to the fact that the masses are sheeple and enjoy being deluded.
