WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH THE USA?

After reading this post, and knowing how they are pumping up Hillary’s delegate number as you do (HERE – from BPEarthwatch), what do you now think of the plausibility of this election twist, especially when Bernie Sanders, as a freemason, might well be in on the deal?

The historian Thomas Frank wrote the book entitled What’s the Matter with Kansas?

He explains how those politicians who support the rich 0.1% manage to persuade ordinary folks to vote for them.

Thomas Frank writes:

“Strip today’s Kansans of their job security, and they head out to become registered Republicans.

“Push them off their land, and next thing you know they’re protesting in front of abortion clinics.

“Squander their life savings on manicures for the CEO, and there’s a good chance they’ll join the John Birch Society.

“But ask them about the remedies their ancestors proposed (unions, antitrust, public ownership), and you might as well be referring to the days when knighthood was in flower.”

(Frank, T. 2004 “What’s the Matter with Kansas?”, pp. 67-68)

In 1999, Donald Trump, on the subject of abortion, said that he was “very pro-choice.”

In 2016, Donald Trump says that he is “pro-life.”

Trump realises that you can win support in elections by pressing the right buttons.

These buttons relate to guns, gays, God, Blacks, Moslems, immigrants, and abortion.

According to Thomas Frank, right-wing politicians prefer to talk about abortion and gay marriage, rather than about poverty.

And of course politicians do not like to talk about false flag operations or child abuse rings.

Too many Americans elect politicians whose economic policies will not benefit the majority of ordinary Americans.


Thomas Frank writes:

Instead of fighting for working class interests, the Democratic party has adopted economically conservative policies.

The Democrats also press the buttons relating to guns, gays, God, Blacks, Moslems, immigrants, and abortion.

The Democrats prefer to talk about being pro-choice rather than about false flags.

Thomas Frank writes that the conservative coalition is the dominant coalition in American politics.

The economic conservatives have achieved business tax cuts and deregulation.

The social conservatives have failed “because the very capitalist system the economic conservatives strive to strengthen and deregulate promotes and commercially markets the perceived assault on traditional values.”

In other words, people like Trump and Clinton do not hold traditional values.

    The crazy thing about this is even the so-called alternative media is playing dumb about Trump. Why? Apparently they are not capable of using the internet to do simple Google searches? “The Donald” has a very long and illustrative history. ALL the candidates are part of the same club and we ain’t in it!

      You bet! And when I publish what I consider to be the truth, readers choose not to believe me – even to attack me. This is another post from Aangirfan, and just tell me they don’t do their research! Will people take the time listen to both videos – as they must to really understand this? I can only hope so! Thanks and hugs, ~Jean

    Jean – this is part of a piece I did years ago at some other pre-election time. reminding people abut the Red Herring syndrome.

    Nearly every day one can be informed of some significant problem facing the modern day “Christian.” There are many influential “leaders” ranting about what the congregation needs to do in order to counter these disasters. But what does a real close look at the so called problems actually reveal?

    Perhaps most of these items can be classified as “red herrings” to keep the attention away from the real problems. To wit:

    IN GOD WE TRUST and One Nation under God – These two phrases adorn the coinage and bills of our currency and are part of the “Pledge of Allegiance.” One must keep in mind here that the founding fathers that initiated the “Trust” phrase were referring to the Lord God of Israel and none other. Therefore can a non-Israelite really trust in our God? Catholics actually are constantly reminded to “trust in the Pope’ and leave the determination of the outcome to him and the priests. Buddhists certainly don’t “trust” in our God, they have a plethora of their own gods. Nor do Muslims, they have their “Allah” and cannot mention any other god. Jews consider themselves and the Talmud to be their salvation. So they certainly do not trust in the God that Christians do. The apostle John says that if one has not the son he has not the father.

    Further, if we have all these hyphenated peoples, we certainly aren’t “one nation” whether or not it’s under God. Even asking most citizens today to recite the pledge is totally out of context. In any given classroom the population would probably consist of approximately 10-15% of children with national traits foreign to the concept of America as envisioned by our “dead White Guys” founding fathers. Indeed, by installing a mostly foreign (to America) administration we have essentially forsaken the attitude that made America the greatest nation on earth. Even a brief historical search will reveal that nations governed by people such as what we now have are inevitably doomed to utter failure in a few short years!

    So – if those two mottos were to disappear, who would be the most impacted? I submit that the average “American” would not even be aware of their passing! Last 4th of July, I did my daily 2 ½ mile walk through my and a couple adjoining neighborhoods and of the couple hundred homes I passed, I counted less than 15 flags being flown. (I stopped flying my flag on 11-4-08 and will not fly it again as long as a non-white person is in the president’s office!) The influx of “elsewhereians” has diluted the Yankee patriot respect to the point that people don’t even stand or remove their cover for the National Anthem or the passing of the colors!

    Abortion – For the past 30 years the so called evangelical Christians have made a huge deal out of selecting candidates that embrace their stand on abortion. For the same 30 years not one politician has done anything about the widespread slaughter of unborn babies! However at the time of the next series of lies and impossible to keep promises, the evangelical community attempts to line up behind the “one” that will “do something about the tragedy of aborting all those millions of little babies.” As soon as the election process is completed, the attention is diverted from abortion to something less career damaging. The thesis here is that “God is devastated” about the abortion process and those people are going to burn in hell for having performed that abomination!

    A closer look at the facts however will reveal some things that don’t make the actions as horrible to us at might seem at first glance. Over 60% of abortions are performed on women who are “other than white.” Of the balance of 40% a significant percentage (it is not calculated) is performed on women impregnated by men that are “other than white.” These “mamzer” children are outside the congregation of the Lord God of Israel from the beginning and therefore are not to be considered other than the dogs that Jesus referred to when declining to bless the Syrophenician woman’s daughter. I know we’re told of the “red or yellow, black or white, they are precious in his sight’ rhyme in Sunday school, but it isn’t found in the bible. So, when our “fearless leader” goes to a Roman Catholic University and lectures the audience about being considerate about the disagreement on abortion, he is actually telling them to stop protesting the actions of the ruling politicos. Neither Socialist party A or Socialist party B is going to do anything substantial about the situation; only during the campaign times is it even going to be a talking point.

    Get over it!

      Bill, I do not agree with you on much of this, but I respect you and your wonderful presentation. Can you tell me if the phrase ‘in God we trust’, by siting historical references, etc. says this reference was all about a Christian God? and, also, I know that the Pledge of Allegiance was established by President Eisenhower, after much consideration, during his time in office. Do you see where I am going with this?

      Also, please check me out that I am correct about President Eisenhower. I remember not having to say it, but then being required to save it. . .like you, Bill, I am no longer young and I do remember some of those years – maybe better than others 🙂

      Hugs,

      • Bill says:

        The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy (1855-1931). It was originally published in The Youth’s Companion on September 8, 1892. Bellamy had hoped that the pledge would be used by citizens in any country.

        In its original form it read:

        “I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

        In 1923, the words, “the Flag of the United States of America” were added. At this time it read:

        “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

        In 1954, in response to the Communist threat of the times, President Eisenhower encouraged Congress to add the words “under God,” creating the 31-word pledge we say today. Bellamy’s daughter objected to this alteration. Today it reads:

        “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

          Thanks for this history, Bill – today I am bleary-eyed and there is no way I could have researched it, but I believe it was the ‘under God’ phrase that I was tracking down. I believe it was controversial, and to whose god did it refer? Only The Christian god? Hugs, ~Jean
