The United States in 2016 has a myriad of enemies: ISIS, the Taliban, Iran, North Korea, Russia and China.
While these countries, terrorist groups and paramilitary forces pose varied threats to the nation, there is an enemy which is much more insidious and which is destroying America every day.
It is an enemy within, supported by foreign entities that benefit from our demise.
It is the Establishment. It is the single greatest threat to the life, liberty and happiness of the American people since the British Empire in 1776.
The Establishment in 2016 has many of the vile traits of its British ancestor 240 years ago. It is arrogant, ruthless and greedy. It will stop at nothing to protect its modus operandi, which has been at full force for the last 53 years.
America is under siege. The wages and jobs of Americans are under siege. Our freedom and prosperity are under siege.
The United States hasn’t been conquered by foreign powers, but by a criminal cabal of its citizens who are hell bent on keeping their power, the people be damned.
What is this so-called Establishment and what do they want?
The Establishment includes: the military-industrial complex, the pharmaceutical companies, the bankers, the K Street lobbyists, the politicians, the mainstream media, the Federal Reserve and the corporations that benefit from illegal immigration and low wages.
The Establishment wishes to keep the US/Mexican Border wide open, in order to continue a steady flow of Mexicans and Latin-Americans who migrate north, take American Blue Collar jobs and in doing so, drag down American Blue Collar wages to a Third World status.
The Establishment wishes to keep outsourcing American jobs and American companies, in order to boost profits, while destroying American White Collar jobs in the process. The Establishment knows that this can only continue by maintaining NAFTA and implementing TPP.
The Establishment wishes to keep the endless, unwinnable wars going at full speed. Endless, unwinnable wars destroy the soul of the US military and the soldiers and Marines who must endure the horrors of war. The Establishment could care less about the average American soldier or Marine. War is good business. Keep it going and convince the American people that endless war is somehow making us all safe.
The Establishment wishes to keep the American people dumbed down by common core education and liberal mainstream media lies.
It’s all about control, over the American people, every day and for the life of every American citizen.
It’s all about the gravy train continuing for corrupt traitors who are not only destroying the US economy, the US status in the world, the US national defense, but the lives of American citizens.
The Establishment doesn’t care if a Republican or a Democrat is in office, as long as Mr. Sanders or Mr. Trump is not residing in the White House. While Sanders and Trump have nothing in common politically, they are the two outsiders who are a threat to the Establishment’s way of life, a way of life that is criminal and traitorous.
The Establishment is the enemy of everyone who believes in freedom, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Like the British Empire of 1776, they will stop at nothing to maintain their power.
They are the modern day Redcoats. They are the enemy of the American people. They wish to keep power in Washington and to break the will of the average American, who they are fleecing.
The Establishment is now at the point where they will do anything to stop Trump or Sanders. They will cancel elections, rig ballots, pressure, strong-arm and bribe delegates, change the rule books, while keeping Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney powdered with makeup in the green room, ready to burst out on the world stage as the new GOP candidates for President and Vice President, in whatever order they decide.
The Establishment knows that Hillary must be the Democrat nominee. Hillary is literally the poster child for the Establishment and every evil tenet it represents. Whether Hillary or a Ryan or Romney wins the election is of no concern to the Establishment. As long as it’s someone on the payroll, that’s all that counts.
The Establishment could care less about Ted Cruz. He is a useful, dutiful and ambitious dupe who they will use to destroy Trump then discard like dryer lint.
This weekend a frustrated Colorado voter who had just had his voting rights usurped like millions of other Colorado citizens wrote the head of the Colorado GOP and told him that the American people were on the verge of burning the whole Republican Party down.
The Colorado GOP responded, “Go ahead, burn it down. We don’t care.”
The arrogance of the Establishment is off the charts.
The Establishment, like the British Empire so many years before is blind. Like the British and King George, they believe the people will never rise up, and if they do, they will be easily brow-beaten into submission.
Even at the end, the British couldn’t believe they were defeated by the so-called “rabble in arms.”
The American people are awakening from their slumber. We defeated the Establishment in battle 240 years ago. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that again.
As President Kennedy, a victim of the Establishment once said, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
