“Donald Trump marches on as Hillary Clinton sweeps south on Super Tuesday” and it might do to be thankful that there will be no Obama or Sanders like masks to disguise what the world is getting. Therefore, what is the world getting?
Firstly, we have the man who among other things believes that “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive“ and who has given every indication that he would have no problem destroying “2,000 miles of diverse terrain, communities and wildlife” to build a wall between Mexico and the United States, and if that doesn’t worry us, perhaps, his intention to ban all muslims from entering the United States should. Might this include diplomats at the UN and in Washington DC, other foreign dignitaries, businessmen, and celebrities? Although, it can be expected that Donald is pragmatic and can resort to apartheid South Africa’s solution and create a few “honoraries”. Not sure if the resident Wahabi number one, King Salman, would appreciate his “honorary Christian” status.
Of course, the few GB that this blog allows cannot do justice to what this man believes, or is supposed to believe, even if he probably only believes in himself, which is even more absurd than some of the beliefs that he has actually expressed. Therefore, it might do to look at who is going to be his opponent and who some even think can inherit Obama’s mask. This is all the more important, as it is her who is most likely to be the next president of the United States of America.
Unfortunately, when discussing Hillary the few GBs that this blog allocates are still woefully inadequate. Therefore, it might be advisable to concentrate on what she actually did when she held office, as Secretary of State. Well, she is partly responsible for the decision to bomb Libya in 2011 and she refers to that disaster as “smart power”, she effectively sanctioned a Honduran military coup against a democratically elected government in 2009, and ….. well, it goes on, and on, and on, and on. However, what about this from someone who used a review of the war criminal Henry Kissinger’s latest book, ‘World Order’, to lay out her vision for sustaining US global hegemony? Back in January, Hillary, a staunch supporter of Israel for her entire career, declared herself to be “especially concerned about the new wave of violence inside Israel itself – brutal stabbings, shootings, and vehicle attacks that seek to sow fear among the innocent”. Horrors, of horrors, “inside Israel itself”, wherever “Israel itself” might be, and this at a time when the number of Palestinians killed by settlers and occupation forces in the West Bank is at a ten-year high. Still, what else can we expect from someone who “placed full ultimate responsibility on Hamas for the deaths of children and other innocent people” . There you have it, the Zionist state dropping bombs on innocents, but they are not responsible.
Of course, in a sane world, you couldn’t make this shit up and the fact is, Trump, or Clinton, does it really matter? One thing, however, seems certain and that is the American empire will not be resorting to the Obama mask option. That’s bad news for Bernie Sanders, perhaps, but for the rest of us ….. well, does it really matter? And we can expect Hillary Rodham Clinton, minus mask and hypocritical to the core, to be given the job of sustaining the crumbling American empire. That is bad news for all of us.
