‘TRUMPERS WERE TRUMPED’ ~ Caitlin Johnstone on “America’s Two-Handed Sock Puppet Show”

Ascension Avatar

“There are two kinds of Trump supporters: there’s the straight-ticket Republicans who’d support an animatronic Chuck E Cheese robot as long as it had an (R) next to its name, and then there’s the so-called ‘populists’ who say everything Trump does is secretly a brilliant strategic maneuver against the Deep State. These bizarre mental gymnastics are possible because these Trump supporters aren’t interfacing with reality in any way. They’re engaged in a weird Live Action Role-Playing (LARP) game where they pretend to be knowledgeable patriots cheering for a Ron Paul-like champion of peace and anti-authoritarianism, while in real life they’re acting exactly like garden variety Republicans cheering for a standard Republican president who’s been advancing longstanding agendas of neoconservatives and the CIA. Trump’s term is almost over. It’s time to admit you were wrong, guys. You’ve been had. You were duped by narrative and empty words into supporting a garden…

‘PEARLS BEFORE SWINE’ ~ Caitlin Johnstone on “America’s Two-Headed One-Party System”

Ascension Avatar

“There’s a scene from John Steinbeck’s ‘The Pearl’ that’s been coming back to me over and over again ever since I started writing about US politics. ‘The Pearl’ is a short novel about a poor fisherman, Kino, who discovers the titular enormous gem in an oyster and goes to sell it to the pearl buyers in town. What he doesn’t know is that the buyers, while they have multiple offices and pretend to compete with each other, all actually work for the same owner. This is exactly how the two-headed one-party system works, in America and elsewhere. One party owned by one imperialist oligarchic class is placed in two separate offices ‘to give some semblance of competition,’ just like Steinbeck’s pearl buyers. And just like Steinbeck’s pearl buyers they work together to deceive the people into accepting the lowest possible bid, in their case meaning the acceptance of virtually no change…

“The deep state impeachment of the deep state’s puppet” 😏

“Trump must go (rhetorical)… they ALL must go, and that will ONLY happen when WE realize that Government is just a euphemism for Slavery. “A Prison for your Mind”~Morpheus. We need to Actively bring these institutions down.”

“Try telling that to the Qanon lot.”

PROGRESSIVE POLITICS ~ John W. Whitehead: “Impeach the Government”

Ascension Avatar

“By all means, let’s talk about impeachment. To be clear: this is not about Donald Trump. This is a condemnation of every government toady at every point along the political spectrum — right, left and center — who has conspired to expand the federal government’s powers at the expense of the citizenry. Don’t keep falling for the Deep State’s ploys. This entire impeachment process is a manufactured political circus — a shell game — aimed at distracting the public from the devious treachery of the American police state, which continues to lock down the nation and strip the citizenry of every last vestige of constitutional safeguards that have historically served as a bulwark against tyranny. Has President Trump overstepped his authority and abused his powers? Without a doubt. Then again, so did Presidents Obama, Bush, Clinton, and almost every president before them. This abuse of power has been going on…
