The Syrian Army has liberated new quarters of Deir ez-Zor from Daesh terrorists. During the operation the army found large warehouses with a huge number of lethal weapons. The Syrian military source told Sputnik Arabic what exactly these warehouses were storing.

According to the Syrian military source there were a lot of US-made weapons and military equipment of Western European and Israeli production. Apart from M-16 automatic rifles there were TOW anti-tank missile systems and 155 mm US field guns.
“There were also Hummers, which were either used to transport people or were stuffed with bombs inside ready to explode. Israeli intelligence reconnaissance aircraft and a modern Israeli protective suit for conducting sapper work have also been found,” the source told Sputnik Arabic.
The source also said that tech for air and ground reconnaissance, satellite communications and bags with C-4 explosives were also discovered inside these warehouses.
There were also boxes with ammunition and weapons stored in the underground shelters, while tanks and cars were covered with a camouflage net to protect against Russian and Syrian airstrikes.
The Inside Syria Media Center website quoted Syrian Brigade General Ali al-Ali as saying that the United States illegally delivered at least 1,500 trucks with weapons and military equipment to terrorists in Syria between June 5 and September 15 of this year.
Although Washington said that these weapons were intended for US allies, they always fell into the hands of terrorists, the general said.

According to the website, the Austrian Glock 19 pistol is the most popular weapon among Daesh militants. Back in 2014, terrorists posted execution videos, in which those pistols were used.
Later it was discovered that these pistols were delivered to Iraqi law enforcement bodies in 2003-2004.

According to the brigade general, the M-16 assault rifles became a symbol of crisis in Syria. The Syrian Army has repeatedly found boxes containing weapons that read “US Property.” Hence statements suggesting  that these were Chinese copies are probably incorrect.

Furthermore, the Syrian Army on a number of occasions found the light automatic FN FAL rifle, which is a weapon used by the NATO. This rifle is equipped with a sniper scope and is generally used in urban dwellings.
In addition, Daesh terrorists have also used Heckler & Koch’s MP5 submachine gun, popular with US and European law enforcement agencies.

ISIS fighters return home to a life of ease in the UK

Terrorists who traveled to Syria are allowed to walk the British streets free.

bY KIEREN UNDERWOOD and Scott Creighton of American Everyman

Here are startling figures. The British government believes up to 850 Britons left the country to fight with the Islamic State. Over 400 of them have returned home. Of them, only 54 have been convicted of crimes. The rest have been left free to “reintegrate.”

If this seems crazy, here’s the rationale as described by the Telegraph: “So far, only a small proportion have been prosecuted and counterterrorism officials have said it can be difficult to find evidence that they committed crimes in the war zones of Syria and Iraq.”

Max Hill QC has been the brains providing the intellectual backing for such policies. He is the government’s independent reviewer of terrorism legislation. Of returning fighters, he said that Britons who had “traveled out of a sense of naivety, possibly with some brainwashing along the way, possibly in their mid-teens and who return in a sense of utter disillusionment” should be kept out of the court system.

The Telegraph also reported on October 29 that “the Home Office is looking at a new strategy to reintegrate extremists that could even see them propelled to the top of council house waiting lists if needed.” They could even have their rent paid by the taxpayer. “We are planning a number of pilots to explore the best way to diverting such people from terrorism and extremist activity,” said an unnamed source.

On the other side of the fence sits Tory Member of Parliament Rory Stewart, famous for his travel books on Afghanistan and Iraq, who says nearly all British Islamic State fighters “should be killed.” Vocal alongside him is Col. Richard Kemp, a former government counterterrorism adviser, who says giving incentives to those who traveled overseas to fight with the Islamic State is “obscene.” As reported by the Telegraph, Kemp told an audience:
I think it’s a very much mistaken policy. When you look at the profile of many of the people who have been involved in terrorist attacks in the UK, or traveled overseas, they do not come from deprived backgrounds. …
If someone is inclined to be an extremist, you are not going to bribe them into not being a terrorist. It’s not going to change them.

British citizens fly to the Middle East to join a group known for some of the most brutal violence the world has seen since World War ii. Beheadings, torture, mass rapes, cage drownings, and forced cannibalism are just some of their calling cards. Then, whether or not it is known if they participated in the brutality, they return to their home country, their only official punishment being put on some formal terrorist “watch list.”

BBC investigation exposes US, UK protecting IS in Syria

By the Economic Times

A BBC expose, with graphic visuals, is quite emphatic: The US and British-led coalition forces enabled hundreds of IS jihadists escape from Raqqa after the headquarters of their self-declared Caliphate was bombarded out of recognition. This will set the cat among the pigeons. 

The matter will surely come up in the British Parliament and Congressional hearings in Washington. More such mischief is surfacing. 

The Defence Ministry in Moscow stated. "The US refused to bomb a military convoy retreating from Abu Kamal (in Raqqa). The coalition's aircraft also attempted to prevent Russian Aerospace Forces from carrying out air strikes against militants." There is considerable evidence of "direct cooperation and support for ISIS terrorists by the US-led International Coalition", the Defence Ministry said. 

In a separate incident "Americans peremptorily refused to conduct airstrikes on ISIS terrorists". The reason given was that the militants were agreeing to surrender as prisoners of war and were "therefore subject to the provisions of the Geneva convention". US aircraft obstructed "Russian aerospace from taking action". 

Stratfor, an establishment think tank, offers almost an apology for terrorism perpetrated by returning jihadists. "Looking at recent cases involving fighters returning from Iraq and Syria, they have tended to conduct attacks against soft targets instead of making more complex attacks against harder, more significant targets. Some examples include a Jewish museum and the soft side of the airport in Brussels; a concert in Manchester in the UK; and a café, concert venue and sports stadium in Paris." Is it not too sanguine a tone on the theme of returning jihadists who destabilise Western societies? 

UK state funding terrorists in Syria

The RT interview is excellent and points the finger at the FO specifically for spending about $250 million on Syrian terrorists 2011--2017.

But of course it is too simplistic to put the UK's Islamic Terrorist network simply in terms of SYRIA, between 2011--2017 and a paltry $250 million. 

In the foreign arena to effect an FO policy of supporting Islamic terrorism in WOG WOGGIE LAND...........Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Indonesia, Malaysia, GCC and so on over many decades, they would need the help of the Intelligence services, and the military of the UK.....and several billion $ spread over many years. 

It's a state policy that began as early as the 18th century, and specifically against the Ottoman Empire at that time.

Inside the UK to sponsor Islamic terrorists, you would require the COOPERATION OF the police, other emergency services, the Home Office who would cooperate or look the other way. And Social Security, to maintain the otherwise garbage good for nothing terrorists.

Ajem Chaudhury being the most famous example as he went around nationwide in front of the telly Grand Standing for 'al-CIA-duh' and 'ISIS' with MI-5 guidance.

Drum role..................he received about $500,000 of social security. It does not cover police protection. 

The UK is the original Western State which thought of the idea of sponsoring Islamic terrorists, politically at first, then militarily. Then they transferred their art to the USA via the CIA.

ISLAMIC TERRORISM ORIGINATES FROM THE UK CRIMINAL STATE.

Saudi Arabia, a country named after a desert family is important.

It is one of the largest exporters of oil.

It has a $1.9 trillion PPP GDP (2018)......14th largest economy on earth.

BUT .....the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of the country is that it is the custodian and protectors of 3 key Islamic sites, Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock, Makkah and Medina.

The last aspect is what gives the Saudi family regime its true LEGITIMACY. ....AND IMPORTANCE in the world. 

All regimes, bad or good require legitimacy.

The Saudi desert tribe family were brought into power by the British Empire in the early part of the 20th century. 

The bizarre puritanical skewered obscurantism of WAHABI ISLAM suited the British Empire. Both in India, Egypt and elsewhere the evil British Empire was up against MODERN SECULAR ANTI-COLONIAL MOVEMENTS that were real challenges to the rule of the British Empire. So the British empire set the dogs of Islamic fundamentalism, against the MODERN SECULAR ANTI-COLONIAL MOVEMENTS. In India it was called the Muslim League (an English name....where there is no pretence who directed its creation in 1905)....and in Egypt, it was called the Muslim Brotherhood created around 1928. Saudi Arabia is created in 1932........with the aid of the British empire.

After WWII, the USA with a GDP which represented 50% of the world, became another powerful ally of Saudi Arabia, along with American oil companies which were the premier buyers of Saudi oil (ahead of the British.).....cementing political ties.

In the 1970's after the collapse of the GOLD STANDARD, all oil sales were linked to the $$$$$$ dollar.....thus maintaining the primacy of the dollar as the reserve currency of the world. ANOTHER GREAT REASON WHY SAUDI ARABIA BECAME an indispensable ally of the USA. 
Image result for tiger tanks

The British lost control of its empire thanks to Nazi Germany. It was bankrupt and exhausted. AND LOGICALLY, AND RATIONALLY (Adam Smith) .......you would think that the British State would not have any further interest in using ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALIST TERRORISTS...destabilising and destroying countries......BUT this appears not to be the case for several reasons:

1. Bad colonial habits die hard, even though there is no apparent SECURITY benefit to the criminal UK STATE to do so.

2. The UK state is run by the Rothschilds of London....and has been the case since the middle of the 19th century. They are Jewish. The Rothschilds of London may think that Islamic fundamentalists running amok in the Greater Middle IS JOLLY GOOD fun, and good for Israel.....as 'al-CIA-duh' and ISIS make ISRAEL look positively normal---an otherwise illegal, racist, apartheid, war mongering, terrorising Jew state. So in the 1970's a Rothschild servant by the name of Sir Bernard Lewis OBE ...a JEW in the FO is sent to the USA to preach the utility of backing Islamic fundamentalism. The GLOBALIST in the Carter administration turn it into a state gospel and put it into action using the CIA.

3. Islamic terrorist False Flags keeps a tight leash on the British state illegally........often helping to pass unpopular legislation (We have to privatise the NHS because of the threat of ISIS......ISIS wants to kill Teresa May, and the Queen.....MORE BS...From the criminal UK security state.)

SAUDI ARABIA-----WAHABI SAUDI ARABIA---where purportedly 15 of the 19.... 9/11 hijackers came from. The suspect suspect list drawn up by INDIAN intelligence, and given to the FBI IN 2001. IS also a major player in funding ISLAMIC TERRORISM, using its petro-dollars. The CIA since the 1970's has organised Islamic terrorism mainly with Saudi money.

But now Donald Trump the great is unkind to Saudi Arabia....

Trump's AGENDA for America IS VERY DIFFERENT TO THAT of the Deep State.

Trump Is Bashing The 'Salvator Saudi' - Why?


BY MOON OF ALABAMA

The Trump administration seemed to get along very well with the Saudi tyrant and his son Mohammed bin Salman. They together admired the orb and joined up to bash Iran. But now the Trump administration scolded and embarrassed MbS three times in as many days. One wonders what is going on behind that scene.

1.

In mid November a mysterious buyer bought a probably fake Leonardo da Vinci painting of Jesus Christ for a cool $450 million. On December 6 the New York Times reported that some Saudi prince was the front-man for the purchase:
He is a little-known Saudi prince from a remote branch of the royal family, with no history as a major art collector, and no publicly known source of great wealth. But the prince, Bader bin Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Farhan al-Saud, is the mystery buyer of Leonardo da Vinci’s painting “Salvator Mundi,” which fetched a record $450.3 million at auction last month, documents show.The revelation that Prince Bader is the purchaser, according to documents reviewed by The New York Times, links one of the most captivating mysteries of the art world with palace intrigues in Saudi Arabia that are shaking the region. Prince Bader splurged on this controversial and decidedly un-Islamic portrait of Christ at a time when most members of the Saudi elite, including some in the royal family, are cowering under a sweeping crackdown against corruption and self-enrichment.
As it happens, Prince Bader is a friend and associate of the leader of the purge: the country’s 32-year-old crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman.
The NYT did not explain how it had gained access to the documents it reviewed. Later that day Bloombergreported that the painting would be shown in Abu Dhabi. This somewhat diverted from the trail to MbS:
The Louvre Abu Dhabi is getting Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Salvator Mundi,” which sold last month at a Christie’s auction for $450 million, the most ever paid for a work of art.Christie’s said the artwork will be going to the museum, but declined to say whether the Louvre Abu Dhabi bought the painting. The Louvre Abu Dhabi said in a tweet Wednesday: “Da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi is coming to #LouvreAbuDhabi.
A day later, on December 7 the Trump administration gave a tip to the Wall Street Journal's Shane Harris. The real buyer, it confirmed, was the Saudi clown prince:
Prince Mohammed, known by his initials MBS, was identified as the buyer of the 500-year-old painting, “Salvator Mundi,” in U.S. intelligence reports, according to people with direct knowledge of the information. American officials have closely watched the activities of the 32-year-old, who is trying to portray himself as a reformer determined to root out corruption in the oil-rich kingdom.
The NYT had already hinted at MbS as the real buyer. But it did not say from where it had that information. The WSJ confirmed the buyer and made explicit that the Trump administration was behind the embarrassing leak.
.
A few weeks ago MbS arrested 200 of the richest and most powerful people in his country. He locked them in a hotel and is fleecing them for their money which, he says, was gained though corruption. That claim is nonsense. He simply wants to steal that money and let them know who the boss is.

The Saudis have a budget problem and are cutting on social spending in the country they rule. It does not look good to cut money from the poor, fleece other members of the wider family and to then waste a large fortune on a picture that might even be fake.

On top of that owning that picture is religiously problematic for MbS. Under Wahhabi doctrine no visual portrayals of prophets like Jesus Christ are allowed.

The UAE again came to the rescue. Today the museum tweeted:
Louvre Abu Dhabi @LouvreAbuDhabi - 1:57 PM - 8 Dec 2017
Louvre Abu Dhabi is looking forward to displaying the Salvator Mundi by Leonardo Da Vinci. The work was acquired by the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi for the museum.
The Department of Culture and Tourism seemed to confirm (ar) that, but when the museum was directly asked by the AP it went mum:
Jon Gambrell جون @jongambrellAP - 8:07 AM - 8 Dec 2017
The Louvre Abu Dhabi refused to say whether they made the $450 million bid or if someone gave the Department of Culture and Tourism the painting when asked by the @AP
.
Hmmm ... this is a cover up. Why is the UAE doing this?

The de-facto ruler of the UAE is the 56-year-old crown prince Mohammed bin Zayed. He is the mentor of (and brain behind) the 32-year-old crown prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman. Did MbS buy a little Christmas gift for MbZ, but was embarrassed when the Trump administration let the world know about it? Or is MbZ running covering for an outrageous buy MbS made for himself?
(What is Habibi MbS doing collecting bad Christian Iconicastical art? Why does he not just give the money to needy brothers like me...and get free blessings)

The buying of the picture is not the only issue at hand. Just the day before the administration leaked to the WSJ about the art deal, President Trump had publicly  scolded MbS about the situation in Yemen:
President Trump called on Saudi Arabia to lift its crushing blockade against its war-torn neighbor Yemen on Wednesday, hours after defying the kingdom and saying the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.In a statement Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Trump said he had directed members of his administration to reach out to the Saudi leadership "to request that they completely allow food, fuel, water, and medicine to reach the Yemeni people who desperately need it."
Today Secretary of State Tillerson again pushed that line:
Speaking in Paris on Friday, Rex Tillerson, US secretary of state, called on Saudi Arabia to be "measured" in its military operations in Yemen.
...
Tillerson urged Saudi restraint.
"With respect to Saudi Arabia's engagement with Qatar, how they're handling the Yemen war that they're engaged in, the Lebanon situation, we would encourage them to be a bit more measured and a bit more thoughtful in those actions to, I think, fully consider the consequences," he said.
He once again demanded a "complete end" to the Saudi-led blockade of Yemen so that humanitarian aid and commercial supplies could be delivered.
Embarrassing MbS about the art buy and publicly(!) scolding him for the situation in Yemen, for which the U.S. is just as much responsible as the Saudis, is quite an assault. What has MbS done - or not done - to deserve such a punishment?

3.
Image result for Dome of the rock

Trump has just declared that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Did the administration expect the applause of the Saudis for its breaking of international law with regards to Jerusalem? Does it lash out to the Saudis to get their agreement?
.
If so the miscalculation is clearly on the U.S. side. It is impossible for the Saudis to concede the Haram al-Sharif, the mosque on the so called temple mount, to the Zionists. 

The Saudi King would no longer be the "custodian of the two holy mosques" in Mecca and Medina but the "seller of the third holy mosque" of Islam in Jerusalem. 

The people would lynch him.
.
If the issue of this public hustle it is not Jerusalem, what else might it be that the Trump administration wants and the Saudis can not, or are not willing to concede? 
.

A few hours ago the Saudi King fired his ankle biting Foreign Minster Adel al-Jubair. A relative of the king, Khaled bin Salman, will take the job. Is this related to the spat with Trump?

SECRET SOCIETIES AND CULTS - PART 1 / SECRET SOCIETIES AND CULTS - PART 2

17. NAZI OCCULT GROUPS

Erik Hanussen, born Hermann Steinschneider, was a Jewish occultist.

'He instructed Adolf Hitler in performance and the achievement of dramatic effect.'

He enjoyed the company of Germany's  elite, becoming close with members of Ernst Rohm's Brownshirts (SA). 

'He was a supporter of the Nazis despite his Jewish ancestry, which was an open secret.'

Hanussen was close to certain important Nazi officials, to whom he had lent money.

...

According to Dr. Walter C. Langer, a psychoanalyst, who prepared a psychological profile of Hitler for the Office of Strategic Services in 1943:

"During the early 1920s Hitler took regular lessons in mass psychology from Hanussen][5]who was  a practicing astrologer"

In 1931 Hanussen began publishing an occult journal, Hanussen Magazin. [6]

Hanussen owned a mansion which became known as "The Palace of the Occult".

Hanussen predicted the Reichstag fire.

It is claimed that Hanussen hypnotized Marinus van der Lubbe, who was blamed for causing the fire.[12]

Hanussen disappeared in mysterious circumstances in 1933.



The controllers of Hitler are the same Robber Barons who control today's top politicians.

Fred C. Koch built a large oil refinery in Hamburg for the Nazi regime. Hitler paid tribute to Henry Ford in his biography and kept a portrait of him in his office. 

The Dulles brothers encouraged American investment in Nazi Germany. Standard Oil of New Jersey fueled the German armies.

Doing Business with Hitler.



The top Nazis tended to be sadistic, gay and partly Jewish occultists, who wanted to wipe out rival factions.

The Nazi party was founded in "a tavern frequented by homosexual roughnecks....a gay bar."

Mein Kampf was dedicated to Rudolf Hess.

Hess liked to appear in gay bars dressed as 'Black Bertha'.

THE PINK SWASTIKA byJudith A. Reisman, Ph.D.

According to Dr. Fritz Redlich, Hitler believed that his father was half-Jewish and had died of syphilis.

The Nazis loved the Zionists.

Himmler's neice, Catharine Himmler, married an Israeli .


The boy-loving Hitler was easy to control.

Himmler founded the SS Witches Division.

Hitler's obsession with the occult

"Central to the Nazis' mystical beliefs was the idea that white 'Aryan' man was not descended from the apes, as were other inferior races...

"Jesus Christ was a White 'Aryan' ... as were the Knights Templar and the Cathars, who held the mysteries of ancient Thule in the Holy Grail. 

"The white Supermen were locked in a struggle for mastery with the ape-like ‘Tschandala’ or ‘monstrous humanoids’ — Jews, Slavs, blacks and ‘mongrel breeds’.

Hitler's obsession with the occult


Hitler liked boys.

The Vril Society counted many of Hitler’s henchmen as members, including Himmler, Bormann, and Hess...

The Vril Society was noted for it’s use of orgies to summon up occult energies...

"Hitler and the secret Satanic cult at the heart of Nazi Germany."



"The darkest side of the Vril was their propensity for sacrificing young children," says Michael Fitzgerald, author of Stormtroopers of Satan. "They would stab them in the chest and cut their throats."

“Bormann was an avowed Satanist, says Michael Fitzgerald. "Bormann, together with Rosenberg and Himmler, wanted to destroy Christianity and replace it with a truly occult religion of their own making. And along with the Thule Society, they created a political party that would try and do just that."

Lawrence Birken, Assistant Professor of History at Ball State University (Indiana), has written about Hitler as an 'Enlightenment Intellectual.'

The Journal of Historical Review: Volume 16 (1996-7) / Hitler as Philosophe: Remnants of the Enlightenment in National Socialism, by Lawrence Birken. Westport, Conn.: Praeger, 1995. 

1. "It should be obvious," writes Birken, "that Hitler possessed a 'classical' theory of race."

Hitler liked the American idea of segregation.

Hitler admired the USA's pro-White racial policies, its restrictions on non-White immigration, and its adoption of eugenics measures. 

2. According to Birken, "Hitler's economic ideas were... closer to Marx than to ... Keynes."

3. Hitler opposed birth control.

4. Hitler opposed Christianity.

Why the Democrats Will Run Michele Obama in 2020

By Mike Whitney 
 "Information Clearing House

The path forward for the Democrats is clear. They need to accept responsibility for their humiliating defeat to Donald Trump and move on. That means they need to stop passing the buck and make a solid effort to reconnect with the millions of disillusioned ex-Dems in the center of the country who either didn’t vote, because they couldn’t stand Hillary, or switched sides to vote for Trump. These are the people the Dems need to lure back into the fold if they expect to be competitive in the future. If they can’t do that,  the party is doomed. It’s that simple.

Check out this excerpt from an article by Democratic pollster, Stanley Greenberg at The American Prospect. Greenberg helps to zero-in on the key issue that cost Hillary the election:
“The Democrats don’t have a “white working-class problem.” They have a “working-class problem,” which progressives have been reluctant to address honestly or boldly. The fact is that Democrats have lost support with all working-class voters across the electorate, including the Rising American Electorate of minorities, unmarried women, and millennials. This decline contributed mightily to the Democrats’ losses in the states and Congress and to the election of Donald Trump…..”(“The Democrats Working-Class problem”, Stanley Greenberg, American Prospect)
This is great analysis. It helps to pinpoint the root-cause of the Dem’s troubles which can be traced back to a tone-deaf party leadership that failed to craft a message that would rally their working-class base. They didn’t do that. They didn’t address bread and butter issues of economic security and standards of living which have steadily eroded under the blinkered misrule of Barack Obama.  Instead they launched a pathetic public relations campaign aimed at persuading everyone that things were just hunky dory.  Not surprisingly, no one was taken in by the ruse.  Here’s more from Greenberg:
“Working-class Americans pulled back from Democrats in this last period of Democratic governance because of President Obama’s insistence on heralding economic progress and the bailout of the irresponsible elites, while ordinary people’s incomes crashed and they continued to struggle financially….
In what may border on campaign malpractice, the Clinton campaign chose in the closing battle to ignore the economic stress not just of the working-class women who were still in play, but also of those within the Democrats’ own base, particularly among the minorities, millennials, and unmarried women.” (The American Prospect)
Exactly right! Clinton chose to shrug off the suffering taking place right under nose and, as a result, got her head handed to her. Whose fault is that?

She traipsed from one venue to the next touting the  “recovery” while the wretched economy continued to sputter along at a lousy 2 percent GDP, health care costs continued to skyrocket, and the good-paying jobs vanished altogether.  Meanwhile, her pal, Obama did absolutely nothing. He didn’t lift a finger to boost government spending, launch a second round of fiscal stimulus, or implement his grandiose infrastructure plan. Nothing. He ushered in an eight year period of falling incomes, higher personal debts, eviscerated household balance sheets and nearly-universal economic uncertainty. This is the dismal economic record that Hillary decided to run on. Is it any wonder why she lost to the most unqualified, least trustworthy, farthest right-wing candidate in American history?

Just because Obama’s personal approval ratings remained high, doesn’t mean that people wanted another eight years of his penny-pinching deficit reduction and grinding economic strangulation. No way. What they wanted was the change they were promised in 2008, but never got. Here’s more from Greenberg:
(Past supporters) “pulled back because of the Democrats’ seeming embrace of multinational trade agreements that have cost American jobs. The Democrats have moved from seeking to manage and champion the nation’s growing immigrant diversity to seeming to champion immigrant rights over American citizens’. Instinctively and not surprisingly, the Democrats embraced the liberal values of America’s dynamic and best-educated metropolitan areas, seeming not to respect the values or economic stress of older voters in small-town and rural America. Finally, the Democrats also missed the economic stress and social problems in the cities themselves and in working-class suburbs.” (The American Prospect)
Americans have had it up to here with free trade. It’s all a public relations hoax aimed at enriching a few fatcat corporate honchoes at the expense of people who actually work for a living. Everyone knows that, just like they know that Hillary was a free trade proponent before she pulled the old switcheroo. Her vacillating position on trade just underscored her abject phoniness on any issue of substance. The woman would say anything if she thought it would win her a couple of votes.

Hillary wanted her supporters to believe that the whole center of the country was loaded with racist, misogynist, homophobic, gun-toting, Bible-thumping zombies who mere presence should offend prosperous, educated liberals whose enlightened views on global warning and transgender bathrooms would lead the country to a new cultural renaissance.  Got that? Turns out, many of Hillary’s Deplorables used to be Democrats before the party affixed itself leech-like to the Wall Street banks,  the tech giants and the big weapons manufacturers. The more cozy the Dems got with the corporate giants, the more working people got thrown under the bus, until now the entire center of the country–from North Carolina to Idaho– is blood-red GOP territory, a clear sign that the Dems no longer speak the language of working people, in fact, they look down their noses at them.

If the Democratic Party is the party of working people than how did a bloviating, billionaire casino magnate win the election?  The election results prove that whatever the Dems are selling, working people ain’t buying.

So now the Dems have decided that they’re going abandon their platform altogether and morph into the “We’re not Donald Trump Party”. That, they think, is the fast-track back to the White House and another undeserved eight years of executive power.

But they’re still looking for the right person to lead the charge.  Or are they?  Maybe they’ve already picked their candidate but they want to keep it hush-hush until the right moment. Is that it?

These are the keys to Obama’s success. It represents the success of public relations over content. The man was an empty slate upon which his backers could scribble their own most-heartfelt aspirations. And they did too,  after all, he won. Even now, his most ardent supporters refuse to accept that the man was an empty suit who never veered the slightest from the elitist script given to him on Day 1 of his presidency. The myth continues.
The Dems have two options: They can either promote a candidate that seriously addresses the issues that working people really care about or they can follow the blueprint pioneered by Barack Obama, that is, take an unknown senator with impressive oratory skills and great personal charisma, transport him to venues that magnify his popularity, fabricate an aura of celebrity around his ‘stately persona’, and make sure he scrupulously avoids explicit positions on the issues but, instead,  speaks only in the broadest and most nebulous terms.

So how do the plutocrats who run the party duplicate that same ‘lucky’ string of events? That’s the question. Where are they going to find another candidate with Obama’s stature, gravitas and charisma, a towering, telegenic colossus who can melt an audience with his riveting oratory and stand tall among the world’s kings and prime ministers? Someone who can connect with the working man in Scranton, the single mom in Winnemucca, and the struggling pensioner in Tallahassee, but someone who –at the same time– faithfully executes the warmongering imperial agenda without the slightest reservation.  Where are they going to find someone like that?

Well, there’s always Hillary Clinton? She might be up for another go, right?

Nope. Hillary’s time is over.

Biden?(You idiot I pined for you, and supported you but you never made contact directly.....too beneath your dignity. Instead, you settled for doing assinine Colbert skits with dollar bills.....more fun I guess Joe?)

Too old.

Elizabeth Warren?

You’re kidding.  Wall Street would never allow it.

Then who?

The Dems need a proven commodity,  a Princeton under-grad with a Harvard Law degree. Magna cum laude. A spotless record, no sordid affairs, embarrassing arrests or spotty personal history. A paragon, a shining example of strength, virtue, perseverance.  A telegenic, charismatic pillar of the community who can deliver a barnburner with the best of them. A black woman whose name recognition makes her the most formidable candidate in the country today, bar none.

Michelle Obama. It’s as plain as the nose on your face.

But what makes the Democratic leaders think that Michelle would be anymore revolutionary then her husband who oversaw the greatest upward transfer of wealth in the history of the country?  Why would they think that Michelle would focus on raising wages, or pushing universal health care, or fighting Wall Street, or lifting living standards, or ending poverty, or creating more good-paying jobs, or ending the foreign wars?

She wouldn’t attempt any of those things, that’s the point. Michelle already knows the drill,  that’s what makes her the perfect candidate. She knows the president is a meaningless figurehead. She knows the whole thing is a charade. She knows that the rich will get richer while working people get stomped on. She’s been there, she’s done that.

And now its her turn to shine, her turn to take center-stage and lead the conferences, and meet the foreign dignitaries, and spar with the press, and hold meetings in the Rose Garden, and languish in the big leather chair in the Oval Office.

Michelle’s day is coming, and the party leaders are already licking their chops.
