This Election Is The Biggest Threat To The US Aristocracy (Biggest Opportunity For Voters) Since At Least 1932

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Eric Zuesse,

The historical significance of the 2016 U.S. Presidential contest isn’t yet generally recognized. Consider the evidence regarding this historical significance, in the links that will be provided here, and from which the argument here is constructed:

For the first time ever, a Republican campaign ad against Hillary Clinton is entirely truthful about her and focuses on the most important issue facing voters:



For the first time since 1932, an American Presidential campaign presents an opportunity for the public to overthrow the aristocracy.


And, for the first time in U.S. history, a realistic possibility exists that the voters’ choice between the two Parties’ Presidential nominees might turn out to be between two enemies of the aristocracy: Bernie Sanders versus Donald Trump. 

However, if it turns out instead to be between Trump v. Clinton, then what will be the aristocratic backing of each?

On Clinton’s side will be Wall Street — and this includes the ‘shadow banks’ (the non-“bank” sellers of what Bill Clinton and the Republicans caused to become unregulated credit derivatives), from which Hillary Clinton is also receiving donations, and from which the Clinton Foundation is supported and overseen — along with other Clinton funders).

Clearly, this is the first Presidential contest since 1932 in which the interests of the aristocracy versus the interests of the public will be presented to the voters, for them to decide which of the two sides they’re actually on.

And, if the election turns out to be between Trump versus Sanders, then this will be the first U.S. Presidential election ever in which both of the major-Party nominees will have committed themselves to policies (Trump clearly on foreign affairs, Sanders clearly on domestic affairs) that the aristocracy vigorously oppose, and that presents a severe threat to the aristocrats' continued rule of the country.

Don't bet that this election is going to be completed successfully.  After a few cities go up in flames on election day, both sides will claim the election should be invalidated.

Sanders is just as palatable to the aristocrats as Hillary.

Conservatives are not going to accept 8 years of Hillary Clinton and Socialists are not going to accept 8 years of Trump.  This summer is going to see violence.  It's almost as if a plan were hatching....  by the fascists.

Aristocratic Female Candidate (Hillary) vs Aristocratic Male Candidate (Trump). Or AFC vs AMC.

Either Or, they're both working for the same people.

Trump ... Sanders ... Either one advances the NWO.

To add to it, Sanders sponsored Paul's Audit The Fed bill in the Senate and pretended to go along with it for many months until the very end when he sold out.

No @Chickaboom...It's AFC vs. NFC

It's AFC (Hillary - American Fascist C... - psst. she ain't no aristocrat!) vs. NFC (The Don - Non-Fascist Candidate)

Let's get ready to rumble! (or is that boxing???)

If Trump vs Sanders is the "illusion of choice " my hats off to the NWO. They really made it seem like those two are their least favorite combination.  I mean they really look like the worst two to have if you want more war, more cronisim

Oh My God. It appears someone actually believes the campaign rhetoric. Trump and Sanders are two ticks deeply embedded within the system. Sanders is a life long politician. You don't stay in power that long without making many back room deals. And Trump has deep connections in both the banking and political world. You don't display the nine financial lives he has demonstrated without a lot of help from your friends. 

Since when are any politicians to be believed and taken at their word? This is lying season for God's sake.

This election is not about "an opportunity for the public to overthrow the aristocracy." It is about who will control the NWO. Sanders: Without a doubt the pawn of the Rothschild branch of the NWO. Clinton: More or less the same. Cruz and Rubio, with Bush backing: This is the Jesuit branch, which colludes with the Rothschilds until such time as it can regain the strength to crush them. Trump: The Masonic Branch, which lost control of its grip on the nation after the election of Kennedy, and longs to regain it, at any cost.

All three branches worship Satan. Their only commonality is their hatred of the followers of Jesus Christ, and their mutual hatred of each other. They will battle it out to the brink of exhaustion, and then they will combine themselves into one Satanaic organization under the command of the Antichrist. None of this will take very long at this point. It will get interetsinger and interestinger.

Can't we all just get along?

I like seeing your post get the greenies Cog.  ZH is much more intelligent on the weekends it seems....As for Trump not being a war monger? We'll I sure don't have this award next to my desk:

And the high rez version:

You guys do realize that it doesn't matter if Trump or Sanders lie, right? The second they go back on their promises, or fail to deliver...

Well, you're going to have a pissed off citizenry one way or the other. I thought everyone here wanted to 'roll the guillotines' a while back. This is the time you've been waiting for.

If Trump gets into office, Dems will go crazy. If he does what he promised, they'll go even crazier. If he fails, then everyone will go ballistic.

The same applies to Sanders with Republicans.

Ah, I can't wait. Trump 2016!

"... Well? ... Answer me damnit!! ... Is there anyone here who is NOT a banking system political whore, backed by the traditional enemies of the truth? ..."

MalteseFalcon's picture

So the unprecedented media attacks on Trump, the secret meetings of the other Republican candidates with Jeb! this week, the meeting on Sea Isle are nothing?

The Pope's intervention, nothing?

Are these guys arguing in their spare time?

To me the promise of Trump is that he'll rip the establishment a new asshole.

He's doing it.

But but but....

This time is different Cog (Gamblers fallacy). This is The Donald and Everyone with a brain knows that Trump is telling the truth (No True Scotsman fallacy). How can so many supporters be wrong (Appeal to Popularity fallacy). And now just look at who is coming out and endorsing him (Appeal to Authority fallacy).

Jesus Cog, use your brain!

I disagree if you look at Trumps background compared to the backgrounds of the others it's very different.  Is Trump playing politics right now? Of course he is, it's an election he is just doing it his way. If Trump gets elected we will be getting a very very different type of person in the white house, a type we haven't had for a long time. I am all for it.Trump 2016.

They must be the NWO's ultra secret backup plan # 32. Wow those NWO guys are devious,  here I thought Cruz with his Bush team of advisors was the sleeper, thanks man. It was Trump all along. .... /s

I'm fine with the FBI and National Guard stepping in -- IF and only IF they are there to...

Uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and protect America from enemies within the very plumbing of the System

i.e. (a) Fundamentalist, religious zealots who seek to create an Alternate Civilization to our Western Civilization, and

     (b) Globalist Oligarchs and their minions on Wall St and K Street, with ZERO loyalty to the US.

jeff montanye's picture

just a thought: i'm not so sure the "protected" ( are ok with bernie; they seem so in the bag for hillary ("she won the michigan debate", "she'll take michigan by ten to twenty points")..

but their fear and loathing of trump is off the charts, imo. also imo i think they think that he thinks 9-11 was an inside job: he's already done the limited hang out (bush knew it was coming and did nothing) and remember trump is running for the republican nomination.  the democrats aren't that bold.

what trump might try if in the oval office is anyone's guess and the perps tend to gag and shit themselves when they let their minds wander.

im not a conservative and i will not put up with 8 years of Clinton either

I sense something.  A presence I've not felt since...

Frankie Carbone's picture

This "sensing something" could be imaginery make-believe thinking where you are so distraut with normalcy bias that you are taking a delusion and trying to transform it into a perceived reality that comforts your torn and battered psyche. Look, I am trying to mirror you and not be a dick. This statement is based on what? I think it is safe to say that we are all desperate for some kind of improvement to our condition. I'm with you on that. But we also need to be extremely careful not to let our emotions and our psyches convince us that "something is there" when it is not. These the cognitive tricks that are brains play on all of us, myself included. Remember Sun Tzu. "Know thyself". Seriously bro, not trying to be a dick, but I am trying to throw some ice water your way to get you to think about statements like that, which we are all seeing way too often as of late.

Well yeah, Bernie wants to NATIONALIZE the banks. No more pretense! "So comrade, it appears you were a Ron Paul supporter. No shekels for you. Maybe tomorrow."

Dead Canary's picture

What he sez he want's to do and what he does are two different things. This guy has spent his whole live in politics.

jeff montanye's picture

not to mention what he can do.  most of the "socialism" requires congressional approval (currently republican).  where he can make a difference and imo would at least to a far greater degree than hillary, is in foreign policy and law enforcement, the two most egregious areas where the bush and obama administrations are least different.

MalteseFalcon's picture

So if Bernie gets elected we get 4 years of total gridlock and a lot less war?

Throw me in the brier patch.

One World Mafia's picture

Bernie SPONSORED Ron Paul's Audit bill in the Senate, went along with it for many months before selling out at the last minute.

Who is suprised by this kind of activity from Bernie? Bernie also said Cankles was his friend and "... let's stop talking about the emails".

Do we even make it to the conventions before violence?  Is the anti-Trump faction Clinton supporters or from the other side of the GOP?   What happens if the Trump supporters start protesting at all the others rallies?  All of the candidates need to call for civility.

Fuck that shit. Communists need to die before they murder everyone else.

There is an opportunity here. Let's not fuck this one up people.

communists?  really?

that's whose been doing the killing?

bush and cheney and rumsfeld.

obama and clinton and nuland.

dang communists.

Fascists and Communists differ in this way:

Fascists kill other people.

Communists kill their own people.

Now you know.

History says you either violently oppose the Leftists at this stage or they win.  In the 60s the country wasn't so far gone and the US government put them down, now the US government and MSM encourage them.  5th columns of various stripes are on the inside trying to turn off the normal rational human response of fighting back.

If that is the case, and it very well could be, then we need to agree that Barry and the Wookie must vacate anyway. Because no president would be better at that point. Seriously, no one in flyover country would care what Soetorobama had to say anymore.

Americans still had enough faith in the Supreme Court to get thourgh the hanging-chad fiasco;  I don't see that same faith this time around.




Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Faith and belief are easily manufactured. That's what crisis is for. When the sky is falling, those conditioned to believe in 'authority' will beg the authorities to fix the problem.

Pretty please, make my boo-boo stop hurting.

Shad_ow's picture

Yes and it's funny to see those that say they want the opposite are turning to Trump for just that.  Funny, not haha funny.  Just plain sad.

No one is going to fix this mess, certainly no one in government.

Tomorrow morning (Sunday) I will post on ZH an article examining The Trump rabbit hole. I think the comment section will be very interesting.

In case you are unaware Cog, this documentary is worth a look. Being of Scottish decent myself I found myself feeling sick:


Plus the odious emminent domain case in Atlantic City:

I was a party rep counting votes on IBM cards for years. Trust me chads did hang. Chads were not a fiasco.

Chads always came flying out of the vote counting machines. It was a product of voters not examing their vote card after punching them. Sometimes they flew out and their vote registered. Sometime they flipped back into their hole and the vote didn't count. Who knows which party was helped or hurt? Maybe both sides had careless voters.

McCormick No. 9's picture

Statistically, careless people would equaly inhabit both parties, since carelessness is not subject to political ideology. Therefore hanging chads would cancel themselves out.


...But logic is boring.
