I was as surprised as anyone by the victory of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.
Like many other independent analysts, including most recently Julian Assange (below video), I had been certain that the establishment would not allow a Trump presidency to happen.
This included not only the Democratic party (which previously played dirty pool against Bernie Sanders), but,
If nothing else, I had
concluded that the media alone had done a sufficient job of
demonizing Trump - multiple negative headlines daily for more than a
year - to make him unelectable to the American people.
The attack bears all the marks of a coordinated effort among the major news outlets:
...and the rest.
It reminded me very much of the concerted media attack against Brazil's Dilma Rousseff which culminated earlier in 2016 in her impeachment and removal from power.
In the case of Rousseff, we see what has been alternately described as a soft coup or a Wall Street coup, rather along the lines of the "color revolutions" of a few years earlier (which are now largely understood as CIA-NGO orchestrated).
In both cases, pretexts
were created and hammered home by an insistent media that whipped up
public opinion. In Brazil, it worked. It seemed like it would work
in the U.S.
To be sure, his character makes it easy. There is no shortage of narcissistic, sexist, or otherwise offensive statements in his repertoire from which to draw. But I have never and will never believe this is why he was demonized.
Ultimately, Trump is a disruptor, and his disruption falls squarely against the two key pillars of the American ruling elite's ideology:
Unlike traditional liberalism and conservatism, neoliberalism and neoconservatism are not opposites.
Neoliberalism is just another name for transnational globalization, while neoconservatism is nothing other than the U.S.-dominated global empire project.
They work together, two inhuman, anti-human processes that ensure a tiny minority of people control and own all the,
...and everything else worth owning in this world.
Hillary Clinton, as the
ultimate representative of such an agenda, received unwavering
support from all segments of that establishment, certainly from the
media. Trump, on the other hand, was vilified.
Say what you want about him, but more than once he spoke to hard-core Republican gatherings against the 2003 war in Iraq and the unconscionable destruction in 2011 of the most prosperous and successful nation in Africa:
The wreck of that nation
will forever be a black stain on the careers of Obama and Clinton,
and on the legacy of the United States as a whole.
Trump also never signed on to the obscene anti-Russian hysteria promoted by Clinton and the entire rest of the national security establishment, whether they be Democrats or truly insane members of the Republican party like John McCain or Lindsey Graham.
And, despite his obvious lack of deep understanding of the problems concerning Syria and the rest of the Middle East, he has at least shown a willingness to work with the legitimate (and secular) government of Bashar al-Assad in fighting the jidahists that have overrun that country.
It is true that rhetoric
is one thing and action quite another, but Trump's rhetoric alone
placed him in a position diametrically opposed to everything the
past several war-making presidencies have stood for.
A year of CNN
demonization has convinced them that Trump is the next Hitler, and
they are acting accordingly.
Trump might make that situation worse, or he might not.
But without a doubt his rhetoric has spoken directly to those who feel left behind by globalization, to a middle class that has been effectively disemboweled over the last generation, in which economic hope has all but evaporated.
Trump has played to that
part of the electorate, and only time will tell whether or not he is
sincere, or can deliver.
To those people not following this, such talk might seem crazy nonsense.
But it is true that Podesta has long discussed his interest in the subject and even generated a New Year's tweet about wanting #disclosure.
More recently, we learned via Wikileaks that rock star Tom DeLonge had been communicating with Podesta, introducing him to several prominent generals and members of the aerospace community regarding the UFO reality and even possession of ET technology.
The leaks do not give a strong indication of Podesta's attitude, except that he seemed at least moderately interested.
herself, we all remember her appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel
show when she briefly talked about the subject, even correcting
Kimmel on nomenclature (UAP, not UFO), before continuing lamely
about maybe going
to Area 51 to see what it's all about.
My friends and colleagues Steve Bassett and Grant Cameron in particular were of the opinion that Hillary (or even Obama himself) might disclose the truth about UFOs soon.
For my part, I never held this opinion and never hesitated to say so. I have never seen a motivation for such a politically experienced operator as Podesta to want true disclosure.
As my co-author and I concluded in our study A.D. After Disclosure, this subject is too radical for any politician to handle. At least not without some crisis that might force their hand.
But to disclose because it's "the right thing to do," or some such? Not a chance. Not Podesta, and certainly not Hillary Clinton...
I never believed they
would ever disclose - unless, I suppose, as an extremely partial and
selective disclosure designed in some way to further the political
ends of supporting their neoliberal-neoconservative vision. And if
that were the case, count me out. I'd rather live with the aliens.
What then, about The Donald?
Talking about UFOs is not the kiss of death it once was. Times are changing and for all I know Trump just might bring it up.
Because Trump is so much
more disruptive to the established order than Hillary Clinton could
ever be, I might just think he would be more likely to entertain the
ultimate disruption of UFO disclosure. At the very least, he would
seem more likely to surprise us than she would.
While I personally believe in the value of speaking the truth on this matter - and in my judgment there is no question that the phenomenon is real, serious, and a matter of national security around the world - I don't see sufficient motivation coming from Washington for some time.
There is still too much
for the power elite to lose.
I never for a moment
believed that, and I don't for a moment believe the Clinton faction,
or most likely the Trump faction, would ever willingly get aboard
the Disclosure Train.
Our world is in flux and in such a situation, things can happen unexpectedly. The Trump victory means that the neolib-neocon establishment is on the back foot for the moment.
Don't expect that to last too long, unless a miracle occurs and the Trump administration actually moves against them. I'm not counting on it, but then again some people like to buy lottery tickets.
Odds seem about the same
Those people had the ear of Bush, Obama, and Clinton. They were and remain very dangerous.
They are still in the U.S. government and will be there to greet President Trump. The question of UFO disclosure is merely one of many treacherous issues that the coming four years will see play out.
Personally, I am more
concerned about a
false flag designed to throw us into another major
regional war, complete with all the fascist trappings it will bring...
