"Russia and China stand
and Washington's Goal of
over the Entire World"
As readers know, I
have seen some optimism in voters support for
Trump and Sanders as neither are members of the
corrupt Republican and Democratic political
Members of both
political establishments enrich themselves by
betraying the American people and serving only
the interest of the One Percent.
The American people
are being driven into the ground purely for the
sake of more mega-billions for a handful of
Neither political party is capable of doing
anything whatsoever about it, and neither will.
The optimism that I see is that the
public's support of outsiders is an indication that the insouciant
public is waking up.
But Americans will have to do more than
wake up, as they cannot rescue themselves via the voting booth. In
my opinion, the American people will remain serfs until they wake up
Today Americans exist as a conquered people. They have lost the Bill
of Rights, the amendments to the Constitution that protect their
Anyone, other than
the One Percent and their political
and legal servants, can be picked up without charges and detained
indefinitely as during the Dark Ages, when government was
unaccountable and no one had any rights.
Only those with power were safe.
In America today anyone not politically
protected can be declared "associated with terrorism" and taken out
by a Hellfire missile from a drone on the basis of a list of human
targets drawn up by the president's advisers.
Due process, guaranteed by the US
Constitution, no longer exists in the United States of America.
Neither does the constitutional prohibition against the government
spying on citizens without just cause and a court warrant.
First Amendment itself, whose
importance was emphasized by our Founding Fathers by making it the
First Amendment, is no longer protected by the corrupt Supreme
The Nine who comprise the Supreme Court,
like the rest of the bought-and-paid-for-government, serve only the
Truth-tellers have become "an enemy of
the state." Whisteblowers are imprisoned despite their legal
protection in US law.
The United States government has unaccountable power.
Its power is not accountable,
to US statutory law
to international law
to the Congress
to the judiciary
to the American people
to moral conscience
In the 21st century
the war criminal US government has murdered, maimed, and dislocated
millions of people based on lies and propaganda.
Washington has destroyed seven countries
in whole or part in order to enrich the American elite and comply
with the neoconservative drive for US world hegemony.
Americans live in a propaganda-fabricated world in which a brutal
police state is cloaked in nice words like "freedom and democracy."
"Freedom and democracy" is what
Washington's war machine brings with sanctions, bombs, no-fly zones,
troops, and drones to countries that dare to cling to their
independence from Washington's hegemony.
Only two countries armed with strong military capability and nuclear
weapons - Russia and China - stand between Washington and
Washington's goal of hegemony over the entire world.
If Russia or China falter, the evil ensconced in Washington will
rule the world. America will be the Anti-Christ. The predictions of
the Christian Evangelicals preaching "end times" will take on new
Russia is vulnerable to becoming a vassal state of Washington.
Despite a legion of betrayals by Washington, the Russian government
has just proposed a joint US/Russia cooperation against terrorists.
One wonders if the Russian government will ever learn from
Has Washington cooperated with
the agreement concerning Ukraine? Of course not.
Has Washington cooperated in the
investigation of MH-17? Of course not.
Has Washington ceased its
propaganda about a Russian invasion of Crimea and Ukraine?
Of course not.
Has Washington kept any
agreement previous US governments made with Russia? Of
So why does the Russian government think
Washington would keep any agreement about a joint effort against
The Russian government and the Russian people are so unaware of the
danger that they face from Washington that they let foreigners
control 20 percent of their media! Is Russia unaware that Washington
has Russia slated for vassalage or destruction?
China is even more absurd.
According to the Chinese government
itself, China has 7,000 foreign-financed NGOs operating in China!
Foreign financed NGOs are what Washington used to destabilize
Ukraine and overthrow the elected government.
What does the Chinese government think these NGOs are doing other
than destabilizing China?
Both Russia and China are infected with Western worship that creates
a vulnerability that Washington can exploit. Delusions can result in
inadequate response to threat.
All of Europe, both western, eastern and southern, the British
Pacific such as Australia and New Zealand, Japan and other parts of
Asia are vassal states of Washington's Empire. None of these
allegedly "sovereign" countries have an independent voice or an
independent foreign or economic policy.
All of Latin America is subject to
No reformist government in Latin America
has ever survived Washington's disapproval of putting the interests
of the domestic populations ahead of American corporate and
financial profits. Already this year
Washington has overthrown the female presidents of Argentina and
Brazil. Washington is currently in the process of overthrowing the
government in Venezuela, with Ecuador and Bolivia waiting in the

As Washington pays the UN's bills, the UN is compliant. No hand is
ever raised against Washington. So why does anyone on the face of
the earth think that an American election can change anything or
We know that Killary is a liar, a crook, an agent
the One Percent, and a warmonger.
Let's now look at Trump.
Are there grounds for optimism about Trump? In the West "news
reporting" is propaganda, so it is difficult to know. Moreover, we
do know that, at least initially, the response of the Republican
Establishment to Trump is to demonize him, so we do not know the
veracity of the news reports about Trump.
Without belaboring the issue, two news reports struck me. One is the
Washington Post report that the Zionist multi-billionaire US casino
owner Sheldon Adelson has
endorsed Donald Trump for
Other reports say that Adelson has mentioned as much as $100 million
as his political campaign contribution to Trump. Anyone who gives a
political campaign $100 million dollars expect something in
exchange, and the recipient is obligated to provide whatever is
So are we witnessing the purchase of Donald Trump?
The initial Republican response to Trump, encouraged by the crazed
neoconservatives, was to abandon the Republican candidate and to
vote for Killary.
Is Adelson's endorsement a signal that Trump can be bought and
brought into the establishment?
Additional evidence that Trump has sold out his naive supporters is
his latest statement that Wall Street should be
"Populist" Trump Wants to Deregulate
It is extraordinary that Trump's
advisers have not told him that Wall Street was deregulated back in
the 20th century during the Clinton regime.
The repeal of
Glass-Steagall deregulated Wall

Nothing has been done to correct the massive mistake of financial

correct the massive financial concentration that produced banks too
big to fail, and the legislation did not stop Wall Street's reckless
casino gambling with the US economy. Yet Trump says he will
dismantle even the weak Dodd-Frank restrictions.
print and TV media are so corrupt
that these reports could be false stories, the purpose of which is
to demoralize Trump's supporters.
On the other hand, should we be
surprised if a billionaire aligns with the One Percent?
Elections are an unlikely means of restoring government that is
accountable to the people rather than to the One Percent. Even if
Trump is legitimate, he does not have the experience in foreign and
economic affairs to know who to appoint to his government in order
to implement change.
Moreover, even if he knew, unless Trump
candidates also replace the Senate, Trump could not get his choices
confirmed by a Senate accountable only to the One Percent.
Americans are a conquered people. We see this in the appeal from
RootsAction to the rest of the
world to come to the aid of the American people.
