While everybody’s been tutting about sex tapes, nobody seems to have noticed that firstly:
WORLD ON THE BRINK: Russia warns it will SHOOT DOWN American jets amid fears of GLOBAL WAR
RUSSIA has warned it will shoot down US warplanes flying over Syria as tensions between Vladimir Putin and the West rapidly approach boiling point.
PUTIN ISSUES A ULTIMATUM TO THE UNITED STATES TO LEAVE EASTERN EUROPE
Russia orders all officials to fly home any relatives living abroad, as tensions mount over the prospect of a global war
Comes amid rapidly deteriorating relations between Russia and the West
Why has all this been cranked up right now? I don’t think anyone really wants a nuclear war. So who needs this crisis?
I think it’s probably got everything to do with the US presidential election. If the USA can be brought to the brink of war with Russia, and Trump can be successfully portrayed as Putin’s proxy, or maybe even as a Russian agent recruited by one of his many East European wives, frightened American voters might be stampeded to vote for a hawkish Hillary Clinton who’s compared Putin to Hitler, as UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson dutifully did today.
I can’t see any other reason for it. And if so, it suggests that Obama and Clinton and the US political establishment are very, very scared that Trump is going to win this thing. Why is so much being thrown at him if nobody really thinks he has a chance of winning?
Clinton is always shown as ahead in the opinion polls, but these polls are being skewed. So nobody really knows who’s ahead and who isn’t. Or at least I don’t. But some people must have a pretty good idea of what’s likely to happen, and it seems they’re terrified.
Pretty much the only asset that Hillary Clinton has got is the full support of the entire US political class and mainstream media. And they can make it look like she’s winning and that it’s going to be her coronation in November. And so that’s what they’re doing.
But she remains a lousy candidate whose only qualification for the job is that she is the wife of a popular US ex-president. Nobody on the left is at all enthusiastic about her (they preferred Bernie Sanders). Hardly anyone shows up to her rallies, or buys any of her books. She’s on medication for cerebral haemorrhages she’s sustained from falling down, which she does regularly. She’s also terminally corrupt, and made most of her money selling influence, at $250,000 per speech for big banks.
And she’s up against someone who has built up an almost fanatical base of supporters who come out in tens of thousands to hear him speak, and who doesn’t need to buy much in the way of advertising on TV because everyone wants to see him, and so he gets free coverage, and is a highly successful businessman who actually makes and sells things.
And aren’t the left supposed to be anti-war? Isn’t that an integral part of the left wing identity? Yet Hillary Clinton is one of the biggest war hawks around, and it’s Donald Trump who is the peace candidate who is saying he can do business with Putin. So why aren’t all the old, pot-smoking, Peace & Love hippies in California going to vote for Trump? Or doesn’t peace & love matter much any more? But perhaps that’s exactly what many of them are going to do: vote for peace candidate Donald Trump.
The way I see it, Donald Trump looks set to win by a landslide, as much of the right and quite a lot of the left turn out to vote for him. And the only way he can be stopped is if he can be made to drop out of the race. And that’s exactly what was attempted with this sex tape business last Friday. And it’s why it was attempted. Except it didn’t work.
With less than a month to go, we’ll find out soon enough. I have lots of reservations about Trump, not least of which is that he’s really just another member of the super-rich US oligarchy. Hillary Clinton was a family friend who attended his wedding.
Isn’t it possible that the master of The Art Of The Deal is going to cut a backroom deal with the Obamas and Clintons and all the rest of them to ensure a peaceful transfer of power, and grant immunity for absolutely everybody, and what we’re witnessing is just the Trump style of doing business being played out for us? If so, then expect the US mainstream media to suddenly stop attacking Trump about a week before election day, and to instead suddenly discover lots of wonderful things about him that they somehow never knew before. And expect Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio to be awarded prominent positions in his administration – and for nothing to really change at all.
