I repeat this a lot, it is amazing what has not happened the last few years, planet still intact for starters, Epstein ?, Qetc ?, lots more.Isn't it interesting to observe what mainstream news outlets choose to either ignore, or focus on? That's why I'm sure to watch the evening news every day. Yes it usually gets my blood boiling, wanting to throw my shoe at the talking head spewing their drivel on the t.v., but it's important to keep up on the diet of what kind of ridiculous fucking lens I'm supposed to be viewing the world through.
We have Captain Chaos not because the U.S. people were drooling to lurch far Right, but because he was offering hope and change that they never got with Obama, and Hillary was serving none of that up. But we never hear about that do we? How many Obama voters voted for Trump in areas where it counted. Taboo.....
Bernie got raped by the DNC right out in plain sight, should have been a major scandal but not a peep, like it never happened. Crickets. What do we get instead? Ongoing hysteria that Russia Russia Russia swung the election, while we've been doing FAR worse than these baseless claims all over the world for a century now. But never a peep about that either. Because the U.S. are the good guys spreading democracy and brightening lives throughout the world with it's military, while it's also a defensive measure, right?
I count only three democrats that might would take a run at shaking up the grind of the machine: Bernie, Marianne, and Tulsi. Although even then Bernie demonstrates from time to time that he'll knuckle under when push comes to shove. So really, it comes down to two women, in my book anyway. The claws are out for Tulsi, especially now that she's taken out a Chosen One. As a sitting member of congress she also does have some power and influence. She might just prove dangerous so we're going to harp on that she's some unwitting Russian asset, or an Assad apologist for daring speak to a world leader that made it to our black list.
The media claws will come out for Marianne if it's ever seen she may pose the slightest threat to the fine grindings of the machine, right now she's more of just a cute little play toy. "Look at her, isn't it fun watching the hippy chick?
Truthfully Vern? Regardless of who's president, even if Americans took to the streets like we did to bring an end to the Vietnam War, I don't think it would change anything, nothing major anyway. I think it's way too late for that. I think it's way too late for all of us. That train done left the station a long time ago. All that did was end one war, it didn't stop needless war in general.
Would it be interesting to see hippy chick Marianne or anti war, Iraq war veteran Tulsi get in and try to shake things up? Yes, and hopefully they would prove me dead wrong, but I think the machine would wind up grinding them into thin dust just like it does anything else that gets in it's way.
And the media would do it's part in making sure enough of our shaped and molded opinions do their part in helping that happen.
That's why I always preach it's far more important to work on continual self revolution, rather than looking to the mirage of meaningful revolution out in the world.
