The More the Establishment Freaks Out Over Trump, the More Attractive He Becomes

The Establishment is freaking out about Donald Trump for one reason: they didn’t pick him. The Establishment is freaking out because the natural order of things is that we pick the presidential candidates and we run the country to serve ourselves, i.e. the financial-political elites.

Donald Trump’s candidacy upsets this neofeudal natural order, and thus he (and everyone who supports him) is anathema to the Establishment, heretics who must be silenced, cowed, marginalized, mocked and ultimately put back in their place as subservient debt-serfs.

With Trump ascendant, the serfs are selecting the noble in the castle on the hill. Outrageous! Unheard of!

You know the Establishment is freaking out when Establishment pundit mouthpieces like David Brooks and Francis Fukuyama are freaking out about Trump. David Brooks could not restrain his disdain for Trump on a recent Charlie Rose segment, in which he intoned (and I paraphrase) that Trump can’t put eight words together without referring to himself, i.e. he is not just a narcissist, but he is (take this, Trump!) a fragile narcissist— unlike people like Brooks, of course, who are solid, secure, wise, well-educated, erudite water-carriers for the status quo.

Policy heavy-hitter Fukuyama confesses the political system in the U.S. is broken but he can’t understand why the citizenry has selected the “singularly inappropriate instrument” (his description of Trump in the pages of Foreign Affairs) of Donald Trump to express their disdain for their neofeudal lords.

Well, Mr, Fukuyama, let me explain it to you: the debt-serfs have selected Trump precisely because the neofeudal financial-political nobility you represent consider him a “singularly inappropriate instrument”.

But, the pundits rage, he’s a narcissist. He’s fragile. (Now isn’t that a classic middle-brow slam from the hopelessly middle-brow (“I only sound middle-brow due to my starring role in the mainstream media; actually I’m brilliant beyond words”) Brooks.

Policy guru Fukuyama has a much better turn of phrase, of course: “narcissist” is way too common and middle-brow a critique at his level. Thus we get “singularly inappropriate instrument” (ooh, now there’s a sharpened blade that slips easily between the ribs).

Dear Establishment pundits, flacks, hacks, sycophants, apparatchiks, toadies, lackeys, functionaries, leeches and apologists: the more you label Trump as “singularly inappropriate,” the more attractive he becomes to the 81% who’ve been left behind by the financialized-globalized-neofeudal order that has so greatly enhanced your own wealth, influence and power.

Trump is attractive because the Establishment fears and loathes him. Why? 1) They didn’t pick him and 2) he might upset the neoconservative liberal hegemonyEmpire that the Establishment elites view as their global entitlement.

The elitists like Brooks and Fukuyama admit that politics have failed. But they believe the solution is more people like us in power. You know, reasonable, well-educated elitists who won’t stoop to get our hands dirty with laundered millions (for example, the Clinton Foundation).

The utter cluelessness of the professional apologists and punditry would be laughable if it wasn’t so pathetic: the more you fume and rage that Trump is unqualified, narcissistic, singularly inappropriate, etc. etc. etc., the more appealing he becomes to everyone who isn’t inside the protective walls of your neofeudal castle.

The people outside the cozy walls of the protected elites don’t care if he is unqualified (by the standards of those who get to pick our presidents for us) narcissistic, singularly inappropriate, and so on–they are cheering him on because you, the multitudes of water-carriers for the Imperial elites, the teeming hordes of well-paid, I-got-mine-so-shut-the-heck-up pundits, flacks, hacks, sycophants, apparatchiks, toadies, lackeys, functionaries, leeches and apologists, are so visibly afraid that your perks, wealth, influence and power might drain away if the 80% actually get a say.

Dear pundits, flacks, hacks, sycophants, apparatchiks, toadies, lackeys, functionaries, leeches and apologists: we’re sick of you, every one of you, and the neofeudal Empire you support. We want you cashiered, pushed outside the walls with the rest of us, scraping by on well-earned and richly deserved unemployment.

    Hugh— I admire your work… but n this case “the enemy of my enemy is NOT my friend” … yes it’s cathartic to see the people we despise all in a twit… yes Trump has dropped some provocative one-liners… but all they are, are one -liners which Trump often repudiates … and then he adds very foolish and dangerous segues… and look at the people he surrounds himself with !

    Sorry… the only decent and moral thing to do come Election Day is to sit this one out.

        During his speech to the Green Party National Convention, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange warned that attacks against Jill Stein ‘are going to go through the roof.’

        • jo6pac

          I read that earlier and I guess the Greens are starting to make puppet masters nervous and that’s a good thing. Buy your pitchfork now while they’re still cheap.

            Aug 9, 2016 The Entire Economy Is Getting Ready To Hit Rock Bottom

            US home-ownership is at 50 year lows.Wholesale inventories rise, but still signalling recession levels. US productivity hits rock bottom, the entire economy is collapsing and all indicators are pointing to it. Baltic Dry Index declines again. The wealthy are building panic rooms and getting prepared for the financial crisis, an event or war.

        That’s not possible for me… I would hate myself in the morning… I was willing to go half-way and vote for Nader … Dr Stein is no Ralph Nader.

    • Toby

      Sorry, but you are a blinders-wearing idiot like 95% of the US population. The ONLY question anybody should be asking is: Am I voting for a globalist or a nationalist. Turn off you MSM programming and seek the truth, because you possess none.

      • Sarastro92

        Big talk, little man. Trump isn’t even running a Presidential campaign… He’s more interested in Twitter-fits than going after Killary… He’s a clown and a fraud… Yeah the one-liners are fun… but there’s no there there.

        • evoval

          A clown and a fraud is Obama and Hillary and that’s been proven time and again over the last 7.5 years dope. Of course Trumps running a presidential campaign and is winning that campaign you f*kin idiot!

    • Sam

      Sit it out? That’s great along with the Jailed, the released from jail, and or the deceased…

      The choice is up to the individual of course but, with Hitlery it’s more of the same of that the Obozo Regime delivered on steriods, or with Trump there is that scary PEACE…duh ! ! !

    • evoval

      Your a fool!

      • Sarastro92

        Do you actually listen to Trump? Or read his website which is basically empty? Do you actually know the people he has around him?

        • evoval

          I know those now in power have financially destroyed this nation and Clinton doesn’t even know what day of the week it is. Trumps not perfect but he is THE only one that can try to fix this unfixable fiasco all the others have created.

          • Sarastro92

            Yeah well I listened to Trump’s Detroit speech and all I heard was warmed-over Mitt Romney … America will be saved if billionaires could dodge all taxes and multi-nationals had a free hand to sell adulterated food and medicine (ie “de-regulate” everything)

            Somehow that doesn’t sound like a satisfying answer… repeal bad trade deals, well, ok… restore border controls… well for the past few years more Americans are exiting the US to Mexico than the other way around …

            But notice, nothing about a Wall Street sales tax from tough-guy Trump… the NY banks could take over his phony empire in less than a week… they own him

            Yeah, it ‘s fun to see him diss the media and various libtards… but it’s all pretty much an act. That’s NOT a vote for Killary… just a warning that Trump is no answer… In my opinion.

          • evoval

            Every time there’s a candidate that could of avoided financial destruction they’ve been attacked by both sides that have brought nothing but financial ruin. Perot, Paul and now we are to the point of no return financially with absolutely no way to repay the debt and the same old hash that created the mess attacks the only one with the remote possibility of fixing it. Unbelievable!
            The one with the best qualifications gets the job and its not Hillary, Sanders, Stein or Johnson.

  • Zap

    I don’t buy it, Trump will play ball with the CFR or he wont get elected.

    • MrLiberty

      I believe the correct term is assassinated.

      • Zap

        They will run a Republican against him as a third party candidate in order to split the vote and hand the election to Rockefeller CFR banker moll Hillary. This is what they did to ensure the election of Woodrow Wilson when they inserted Teddy Roosevelt into the contest, Wilson was their chosen front man for their take over of the Federal Reserve.

  • Nada

    Nice try. Trump IS establishment! You know something. I’m sick to death of these so-called “truther” sites propping up this billionaire-boys-club puppet with not so much as a mention that he just endorsed establishment tool Paul Ryan and even greater than that, supports scumbag traitor John McCain for another Senate Run. Never mind Pence. Everything about Trump is ROTTEN! We have ZERO choices in ANY (S)elections and this one is no different. All we have is the illusion of choice, or in most cases DELUSION.

    • SargintRock

      You need to quit being so “Superficial” in yer understanding of Politics and how incredibly difficult it is for an “Outsider” to penetrate the Borg and destroy it! All you Prep Boys outraged by his affiliations have no idea of the Machiavellian three Dimensional chess being played in these high stakes realms of Global Power machinations!
      I quit being so naïve when I was finally clued into the BIG Picture!

    Now we are beginning to know how the Heretics must have felt when attacked at every turn by Torquemada and his Henchmen in Medieval Europe!

  • MrLiberty

    Indeed, when I saw a story claiming that 50 top “national security” folks from the criminal Bush administration were speaking out against Trump I thought “outstanding”. What more of an endorsement could you possibly want than that the criminals who helped orchestrate the war crimes of Iraq and Afghanistan were against this guy and his foreign policy? And that fact that Hillary is putting some of these complicit criminals in her commercials further seals the deal. Don’t get me wrong. I believe that EVERY election at EVERY level should include “None of the Above” as an option and if NOTA wins, ALL candidates would be ineligible for any re-do of the election. Without this kind of TRUE democratic input from the voters, everything else is just a complete sham.

    • whodowetrust

      It is amusing that they push how unsafe Trump would be and yet are angry he doesn’t support war.


    Every time read that either new world order folks, wall street firms , neocons , billionaires , NSA FBI DOD, are against Trump the more I am persuaded to believe that he is the one.
    Julian Assange is a true world patriot. Seth Rich thank you for your patriotism, rest in peace, you will not be forgotten.

    why did the heathen rage?

  • Jack

    Well, of course. When one realizes that the MSM are liars, one has to think, he’s the one. There’s a saying in law…”If you lie about one thing, you lie about anything.” Something like that. Everything is opposite….”Have some Johnny Walker Red….it’s good for you!!!!” Eat man made food…etc.

  • Gunner55

    There won’t be a next time. Hillary will support the hijra or Muslim invasion of America.

    Hillary will become the Angela Merkel of United States. Only those waiting to become dhimmis will sit this one out.

    Donald Trump is not bought and paid for. There won’t be a second chance for working and middle class Americans.

    Donald Trump for president.
    Deus vult.

    • whodowetrust

      Her support of Huma and Iran are proof of that, as well as her comments about bringing in even more “refugees”, ones that even this administration admits they can’t “vet” and who many become terrorists.Did Obama not notice most of the shooters in America and around the world have been Muslim and if they cant find a gun they can drive a truck or fly a plane.
      Muslims are taught to lie, even about their faith. They can claim they are Christian while plotting the mass deaths of Americans.

  • Sam

    Let’s see….With Trump we have the return to the rule of law and Peace On Earth – with Hitlery there is more of the same that Obozo has caused on steriods with WARS, Lies, Deceit, and the Death to America Angela Merkel style and worse….it’s so hard…what to do? HA!

  • jadan

    Trump doesn’t become more attractive to me, Smith. I really can’t stand to check in at Arianna Huffington’s blog because it’s all hate Trump, every damn day, but that doesn’t inspire sympathy in me. Trump is no under dog, he’s no populist, he’s just a loud mouth billionaire, which is a rare quality in a billionaire, if he actually is a billionaire. Billionaires aren’t as shy as they used to be, or ought to be. They’ve been trying to take over this country since FDR and they are finally achieving the fulfillment of the Oligarchy that has always featured in their wettest dreams.

    Trump is a lot less attractive to the electorate than you imagine. Republican primary voters made him their nominee. It’s no plurality, even of the Republican vote. It’s just loud. It’s the same free market fruit cakes who got us into the fix we’re in, the strident fools who think government is the problem. It isn’t “anti-Establishment” voters. Trump is Establishment. He’s got a big indiscreet mouth, he’s not too bright, but he is heavily entitled. He is not the character the Establishment wants up front, but he is Establishment, and when he’s president, he will be top-of-the-heap Establishment in the new Trump Establishment.

    We have no leadership in this country. Hillary Clinton is no leader. The man who presented himself as truly anti-Establishment and spoke boldly of a “political revolution”, Bernie Sanders, has demonstrated he isn’t equal to the demands of the time. Trump struts around and tries to give the impression of leadership. So, I’m voting Green. I don’t think Jill Stein is the natural born leader called for, but I like her values. The vote count is manipulated in any case. We cannot confidently point to an election result and say: There’s the will of the people! We don’t even have that to lead us!

    We’re in a real pickle, to coin a phrase, and I’m just going to pretend my vote means something and spend it on the values I believe in. Stop feeling sympathy for Trump, Smith. You’re making as ass of yourself!

    • Bingo.

    • Sam

      An MSNBC fanboi, Trump is a racist, Trump is no good ” Stop feeling sympathy”…?Actually, that thinking is more of the same nonsense we hear from the Lame Stream. Who’s your fav blowhard on the TeeVee?

    What opart of “Sorry… the only decent and moral thing to do come Election Day is to sit this one out.” don’t you understand?

  • daniel lee morgan

    The elite I equate with what Jesus appropriately referred to as a brood of vipers! The thing that scares them to death is Trumps isn’t a snake like them he’s a mongoose, their mortal enemy! And they know if they don’t get him, he’s going to get them, and I’m for that! And scarred a-holes are wont to say the most outlandish things when the see things aren’t going their way!

  • TellTheTruth-2

    It appears the POLLS are being rigged for Hillary now … PROOF FiveThirtyEight rigged their polling average over the past week in order to manufacture a fake post-DNC bump for Clinton. Between July 29th and August 7th, *every* poll going back to Nov 2015 was re-adjusted by an average of 8 points in favor of Clinton. …

    • whodowetrust

      As will the electronic “voting” booths be.

      • TellTheTruth-2

        Sad; but, true. I’ve studied VOTESCAM and it is ugly. “The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do” said Joseph Stalin As the Ziocon war mongers do to the USA what they did to Russia years ago, a new iron curtain is descending over the USA and all we get is lies and propaganda from them.

    Has fucking Trump bought off the independent/alternative media? Seems the independent media talks like the man shit’s roses or something, I haven’t figured out why the independent media ignores his downsides, such as pushing this “knock the hell out of ISIS” bullshit when the CIA/Government fund and run the MFers. “Building a military that nobody will mess with us” horse crap when if we had a straight Government that actually minded it’s own business and stopped creating “Terrorists” , we wouldn’t have to worry about anybody messing with us anyway. The enemies are within the damn country, not abroad. Muslims are not killing nearly as many people as the medical mafia/big pharma murdering duo. With any search you can find pics of him playing golf with his “opponent” and some of the biggest crooks in history. Endorsing John shit stain McCain another damn traitor to the constitution and a true Free America. Paul Ryano as well. Talking about what a great friend he is to murderer Lucky Larry Silverstein who profited handsomely off of 9/11 with no conscience. Just a few years ago was praising Hillary and what a wonderful job she was doing and Obama too. His VP pick was a damn joke. How the hell is he going to “Make America Great Again” with all these corrupt bastards who destroyed it? It’s like the alternative media is now pushing the lesser of two evils BS and not reporting some of the problems I personally see in Trump. Sure he’s better than Hillary or at least he talks like it anyway, but judging by the company he keeps I find it hard to believe the man is really going to turn on all these MFers who are profiting from the corruption and save America. Just something all to strange about Trump, something I don’t trust. I say to hell with them all and just start preparing for collapse because Trump isn’t the answer either.
