There's no tug-of-war...  Bannon didn't even get his hands on the rope before the establishment pulled it away.

Trump likes being pulled. I take personal offense with a president who appoints a figure made-of-shit like Nikki Haley UN ambassador or agrees with Assange being indicted for the revelations on Wikileaks - a service to the public that helped Trump become president and which is no crime under international and American law.

Anyone notice how passive he looks in that picture?

However, we need to remember if Hitlery had been elected, we'd alreayd have a few millions dead and half our cities demolished from a war with Russia.

Naw... POTUS doesn't make those calls. Clinton would have lauched the war at the same time Trump will... when the presidential handlers say so.

The president is a puppet, nothing more.

Yeah, she's a gem.

Poor Ben Garrison has fallen for the ruse. Check Bannons bank account after he is "run out of town on a rail"


Campaign promises camp is sucking Trump's asshole, wondering why it tastes like shit.

The Establishment is sucking his dick, knowing they are giving and getting a happy ending. 

Politics 101.

Soros fluff boy speaks..what wrong asshole benefits on the chopping block. You scrotums stand out like a zit...

The one thing he is missing is the establishment was behind the promises on the left.

They were just a Mirage......

Killing the TPP was not in the establishment's best interests, so Trump was not owned from the get-go or else no way that would have happened.

  That was true at one time.  I don't think that is the case now.  He used to have principles and/or convictions concerning military involvement in other nations.

  I find it most alarming that he has swept aside his values for what can only be political gain.  Where does expedient end ?

RedDwarf's picture

It's hard to say if he was offered a deal, or offered a deal he 'could not refuse'.  If the latter, real change only comes if we elect a true patriot willing to die, or if we have a revolution of collapse of the system.

waspwench's picture

It is becoming more and more obvious that Trump is not going to be permitted to govern or to fulfil the campaign promises that got him elected.   Every time he does attempt to do anything it is blocked by some tinpot judge   or by Congress.

It is certainly possible that Trump has cut a deal, but I think it far more likely that "They" have indeed made him an offer he can't refuse.   Blackmail on some invented outrage or threats of assassination of himself or of his family members   If Trump can't deliver he will not be re-elected in 2020, and there is a limit to what he can do in four years anyway, so he can be got rid of at the next election and it will be business as usual.

What is really troubling is, as you point out, we cannot effect real change peacefully.

The big question is:  what do we do now?

Madison's_Ghost's picture

Its not a tug of war.  Its a bidding war, and most of our pockets can't afford to bid.

Look in the establishment stands -- does that guy have a hook nose? Das Rayciss!

Almost all the world’s economic and political problems revolve around the hegemony here in America of the global corporate cartel, which is only headquartered in the US because this is where their military arm resides. The only way to regain our (we People) sovereignty as a republic is to strictly curtail the privileges of any corporation doing business here. The government must be reconfigured to represent the Middle Class if we are ever to restore sanity, much less prosperity. There will be no peace and prosperity in America until we, the good folk, drain the "swamp" created by the US Constitution. The "swamp" can't be drained at this point because the Constitution  does not contain a “drain plug". This is the kind of "plug" it needs. And it needs to be pulled ASAP:




28th Amendment


Corporations are not persons in any sense of the word and shall be granted only those rights and privileges that Congress deems necessary for the well-being of the People. Congress shall provide legislation defining the terms and conditions of corporate charters according to their purpose; which shall include, but are not limited to:


1, prohibitions against any corporation;


a, owning another corporation,


b, becoming economically indispensable or monopolistic, or


c, otherwise distorting the general economy;


2, prohibitions against any form of interference in the affairs of;


a, government,


b, education, or


c, news media, and


3, provisions for;


a, the auditing of standardized, current, and transparent account books, and


b, the establishment of a state and municipal-owned banking system


c, civil and criminal penalties to be suffered by corporate executives for violation of the terms of a corporate charter.




The biggest hurdle to convening an Article 5 convention will be to silence the 24/7 corporate media propaganda machine which will “guarantee” that a constitutional convention is the sure path to anarchy and chaos. There are so many issues that need addressing that it will be extremely difficult to focus on just one issue: draining the swamp; first and foremost. Just that one thing: get the idea of incorporating business enterprises (or political movements) out of our collective thought process. Incorporation is a subtle, inconspicuous little glitch in our collective philosophical evolution and, as appealing as it is to join groups and let them do your thinking, such groups immediately assume identities of their own and become eternal super-groups with their own agenda and more money than the sum of all members’ total investment. Corporations can’t even be controlled by their own executives; they’re “fictitious persons”, legally, morally, and tangibly. Yes, corporations are comprised of good, church-going, honest, people, while the corporations they belong to, work for, administer, or own, go about the planet (and at home) committing genocide, or worse. You can spend a lifetime fighting legal injustice, global warming, illegal immigration, racial disparity, Democrats, Republicans, Joos, globalization, and bathroom assignments, but nothing is going to change so long as corporate media has your brain in a bottle. If nothing else or until a better organizational plan comes along; try whispering in your neighbor’s ear: “Article 5 Amendment 28. Article 5 Amendment 28. Article 5 Amendment 28” until we all understand what’s necessary and act in unison when opportunity presents….

Too long. Did not read. Cliffs?

Bottom line: You’re a slow reader because you didn’t get an education. You’re uneducated because corpocracy doesn’t want you to think for yourself; it wants workers. You’re ignorant because you choose not to think about it.




Can you write a whole paragraph telling me what an asshole I am?


waspwench's picture

Not everything of import can be expressed in ten words or less.   If you cannot manage to read this then you are part of the problem:  a lazy, uninformed, low IQ voter.   The NWO loves you.

If we're sharing cartoons, here's my take on the French election:

<<<"Tug of war"

<<< War of Whores

LOL@Soros in the bleachers.

Soros always wins. That is why Trump hired Steven Mnuchin as his Treasury Secretary. Mnuchin worked for Soros and Goldman. What can be said? In the end the billionaires always have each other's backs.

Even the cartoon manages to paint the perfect expression on Cohn & Kushner faces.

lol, he did a good job on the "goldman smile"

JSBach1's picture

Remember when bibi held a news conference with Trump? Did you notice the gleaming smile on bibi's face? He must have known that he had his man at that time.

Ivanka needs to let her daddy administrate his administration. She's the globalist that has the most pull in this tug of war game.

crossroaddemon's picture

You're still operating under the deluasion that POTUS has power.

But.... Ivanka calls Krushner "daddy" when she's fucking ......

Add the American people on Bannon's side!

I should email Ben and tell him Bannon should have Donald by the balls.

WTFUD's picture

Good thing about small hands is that they make your dick look bigger and that's the only thing Trump's tugging.

RovingGrokster's picture

That giant sucking sound in DC is the swamp feeling its oats.
Even as we get exec orders cleaning up this, or that, the Neocons and statists keep on pulling.

Arthur's picture

Bannon f*cked up.

On immigration all he had to do was orchestrate a tighting of existing regulations or make minor changes to effectuate the goal.

Simply require/make it very difficult to visit with out a valid governement ID.  Think there are many floating around in all the coutries that Bannon/Trump wanted to ban?  Plenrty of other "tricks" that could have been used.

Instead Bannon went to excite the base with the "red meat"  of a ban whilst also delibertly goading the left.  Fun sport but stupid politics.  Might work to sell Brietbart but he should have know that he would face instutional opposition and a phalanx of lawyers.   Stricter enforcement of existing rules would have been really hard to challenge legally.

I like Ben Garrison's cartoons. I especially like them when people stick happy merchant faces on Garrion's original drawings.
