Can The American People Defeat The Oligarchy That Rules Them?

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

Aren’t you surprised that Hillary and the presstitutes haven’t blamed Putin for FBI director Comey’s reopening of the Hillary email case? But the presstitutes have done the next best thing for Hillary. They have made Comey the issue, not Hillary.

According to US Senator Harry Reid and the presstitutes, we don’t need to worry about Hillary’s crimes. After all, she is only a political woman feathering her nest, just as political men have done for ages. Why all this misogynist talk about Hillary? The presstitutes’ cry is that Comey’s alleged crime is far more important. This woman-hating Republican violated the Hatch Act by telling Congress that the investigation he said was closed is now reopened. A very strange interpretation of the Hatch Act. During an election it is OK to announce that a candidate for president is cleared but it is not OK to say that a candidate is under investigation.

In July 2016 Comey violated the Hatch Act when he, on orders from the corrupt Obama Attorney General, announced Hillary clean. In so doing, Comey used the prestige of federal clearance of Hillary’s violation of national security protocols to boost her standing in the election polls.

Actually, Hillary’s standing in the polls is based on the pollsters over-weighting Hillary supporters in the polls. It is easy to produce a favorite if you overweight their supporters in the poll questions. If you look at the crowds attending the two candidate’s public appearances, it is clear that the American people prefer Donald Trump, who is opposed to war with Russia and China. War with nuclear powers is the big issue of the election.

Hillary’s problem has the ruling American Oligarcy, for which Hillary is the total servant, concerned. What are they going to do about Trump if he wins? Will his fate be the same as John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, George Wallace? Time will tell. Or will a hotel maid appear at the last minute in the way that the Oligarchy got rid of Dominique Strauss-Kahn?

All of the American and Western feminists, progressives, and left-wing remnant fell for the obvious frame-up of Strauss-Kahn. After Strauss-Kahn was blocked from the presidency of France and resigned as Director of the IMF, the New York authorities had to drop all charges against Strauss-Kahn. But Washington succeeded in removing Strauss-Kahn as a challenge to its French vassal, Sarkozy.

This is how the American Oligarchy destroys those it suspects might not serve its interests. The corrupt self-serving Oligarchy makes sure that it owns the government and the media, the think tanks and increasingly all of the major universities, and, of course, through the presstitutes, Americans’ minds.

The Oligarchs are now hard-pressed to rescue Hillary as US president, so let’s see if the Oligarchs can once again deceive the American people.

While we wait, let’s concern ourselves with another important issue. The Clinton crime syndicate in the closing years of the 20th century allowed a small handful of mega-corporations to consolidate the US media in a few hands. This vast increase in the power of the Oligarchy was accomplished despite US anti-trust law. The media mergers destroyed the American tradition of a dispersed and independent media.

But really, what does federal law mean to the One Percent. Nothing whatsoever. The One Percent’s power makes them immune to law. Hillary’s crimes might cost her the election, but she won’t go to jail.

Not content with 90% control of the US media, the Oligarchy wants more concentration and more control. Looks like they will be getting it, thanks to the corrupt US government. The Federal Trade Commission is supposed to enforce US anti-trust law. Instead, the federal agency routinely violates US anti-trust law by permitting monopoly concentrations of business interests.

Because of the failure of the federal government to enforce federal law, we now have “banks too big to fail,” unregulated Internet monopoly, and the evisceration of a dispersed and independent media.

Not so long ago there was a field of economics known as anti-trust. Ph.D. candidates specialized in and wrote dissertations about public control of monopoly power. I assume that this field of economics, like the America of my youth, no longer exists.

As Rahul Manchanda explains, “yet again another huge media conglomerate is being swallowed and acquired by another huge media conglomerate, to create another gargantuan media outlet, in another consolidation of the enormous power, money, wealth, intimidation, conspiracy and control” that eviscerates the US Constitution and the First Amendment.

THE OLIGARCHY IS A WAR PARTY.   We live in a global war economy.  No president will ever get elected or live very long if it is defied.

That goes for Dems, Reps, Greens, Libs, Clintons, Obamas, Bushs, Kennedys, Nixons, Reagans, and TRUMPs.

don't be a fool and think that Trump is not going to go right along in lock step.

if you actually believe Trump is anti-war, it shows your desperation and your ignorance of how the world actually works.  

TRUMP is almost worse than an oligarch, he is a WANNA-BE oligarch who has spent his entire life wanting to be one.  

Mr. Universe's picture

I can't prove that you are correct, nor can prove you wrong. I've said all along this is playing out too textbook for Brer Donald. I don't think Satan cares which of his followers are the kings of this world. Hillary is just another pawn in a multigenerational battle.  Useful until she is not. Trump has spent a great deal of time learning how to appear on camera with his Apprentice gig. Some of his core beliefs scare the crap out of me, others not so much. Those other ones along with the ones I cheer (like TPP opposition) are in direct conflict with TPTB. IDK, January is still a looong ways away.

Hell, the motto over at NBC is "never give up" as the main headline on their news site reads

Analysis: Reality Check Shows Clinton's Path to 270 Is Stable

The problem with Trump’s fascism is that it’s even worse than Hillary’s fascism. The left fascism, in my opinion, needs to change the language on the immigration issue. But they just don’t know how to.

The answer is not yet. A lot of people here love The Donald and still bitch about privacy and government control. smh. As a Nevadan I proudly voted for "None of the Above". Remember why you are here reading these articles.

This man; Steve Pieczenik, is very credible... see here for his background. I was aware of the original silent coup of the neocons/Bush Jr/Jeb and the Project for the New American Century; the NWO. The last piece for total tyranny was Cheney in the White House and facilitating the practice run on Murrah and then 9/11. It's been straight downhill from there for Americans. I believe the counter coup is actually underway. Amazing.


Top Neocons and PNAC: William Kristol, Robert Kagan, Frederick Kagan, Irving Kristol, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, John R. Bolton and Charles Krauthammer. Jeb Bush signed PNAC as well. Their MO is simple; let's be friends and we'll make you rich and powerful. No? Then we'll set you up and ruin your career. Still no? We'll kill you. Or, nationally, "We'll bomb you back into the stone age if you don't do as you're told." Pure evil these guys.

A lot of people here used to hate Jim Comey (me included)


Except for him and his like minded colleagues, our futures are no longer hanging in the balance.

Personally I think Comey did the right thing, waited so that they could replace the rodent with another like minded rodent, then BAM!

I think he took a bullet for America in July.

Normally Chris, you are very close, like 95% of the time with your 'analyses'.

Which I appreciate btw.

However, J Comey is what I consider a toss-up, a 50-50 either way.

The fact is, Comey has been directly involved in this Clinton Crime-BS for 20 years!

He's a track record of a fuckin' corrupt stooge. Big Time!

I think the J Cuntme, is only protecting his own ass & his brother, Patrick[?] Comey who is a lawyer representing the Clinton Foundation.

The dude is corrupt.

A 20-year federal penitentary sentence is what he deserves, at minimum.

My fellow ZH'ers please report techies-r-us and yippee kaiay to abuse@zerohedge for spamming the comments section. 

Feel free to include this link:

which shows his 1 week old account being used to either post his unrelated obscured links, or to pat himself on the back on one of his other accounts.


philipat's picture

His other PROVEN active accounts are lonnng, letsit  and Mano-A-Mano, there are others suspected to be reported when confirmed.

Apart from the fact that he is a retarded shithead who enjoys talking to himself, his strategy is to separate the YK post with the falsified link from my "outing" response by including messages from his other accounts to himself immediately after the YK post.

Please post that picture of him again for our amusement?

erkme73's picture

Techie-r-us is the one he's using now.  both to spam and to congratulate himself with TU's.

I managed to hack into his parent's home surveillance cameras in the basement and captured this image of him:

philipat's picture

Love it!!!

BTW, ZH account names are case-sensitive and his latest account is techies-r-us with a small "t".

He always keeps a few accounts "in reserve", such as Mano-A-Mano which he doesn't spam with and which, therefore, can't get banned. There are a few other accounts I am monitoring also. He keeps these accounts quiet and brings them out occasionall just so as to write an apparently critical message to one of your, or my, messages. He is altogether the professional spammer?

And he brings out the other more active accounts to get in a quick "respnse" to the YK posts with the fake links because he wants to separate my "outing" response message with as many responses from unsuspecting readers as possible. My system operates automatically but there is a delay between recognizing his posts from designated accounts which include one of his fake links. My IT Guys are working on how we can speed up this process using a US VPN.

philipat's picture

What, only ONE downvote? Come on lonnng, letsit, Mano-A-Mano, techies-r-us etc, surely you can do better than that? The number of downvotes is generally a tip as to how many active accounts you are using!!

Mr. Universe's picture

If he thought about all this for just a minute. He might come up with something like this...

Hey, how about I take the time I waste with pointless spamming and use that to create a kick ass website that I would be proud to put the real name of the link to in my relevant posts.

nah, not going to happen, but we can dream.

@ WernerHeisenberg

I think you should read this article by Albert J Nock about The Remnant, not that I am criticizing you in any way, shape or form about what you wrote, but rather that I am adding to what you wrote in my own little way that the 3% Remnant you refer to, I surmise, waits in the wings for the remaining 97% of the masses to collapse under the weight of their delusion(s):

Yes. If Trump gets in, is not taking orders from Sheldon The Hutt Adelson, and can emulate what Putin did to the

Sounds to me like Alex is scrambling to try to remain relevant. He isn't being fed inside information now and is trying to cover.

I think next we'll see the disinformation agents go down: Jones, Steve Quayle and David Icke, to name  just three.

It's all coming unravelled.

Agree, there is a very, very low probability of the hoi polloi doing that, they are too diverse and distracted. 

Mr. Universe's picture

The last time the aristocats hung was in France, meow. Revolution sounds all warm and fuzzy, but the truth is rarely do they get what's coming to them. So what Hillary goes to prison because before Trump can drain the swamp, every venimous creature with awill to survive will be looking to take him out. Riots in the streets propagated by slanted media? check. Islamic terrorist false flags? check. War in the Middle East and Syria? check baby, anytime you want it. Until we unplug the source of their power, the power to print money from nothing, no one will be free.
