Political notes, a drop in intelligence

lido_1063

… by Gordon Duff, VT Senior Editor

 

I just finished listening to Mitt Romney and Donald Trump trade barbs.  Lets begin with the level of absurdity here, both are Vietnam War draft dodgers of the highest and most despicable level.  Both have very strong and lifelong ties to organized crime.  Both have made their personal fortunes through chiseling and inheritance.

Let’s also face a truth long forgotten, the GOP is entirely run by Sheldon Adelson, a Macao gambling boss with a history we can’t begin to discuss and still hope to get into a car without the help of the bomb squad.  Aiding them are the evil twins, the Koch brothers, indescribable monsters.  They run the Republican Party and only escape being called “organized crime” because they are bigger and more powerful than organized crime and far more dangerous.

The mob shakes down candy stores, these creatures and the politicians they own, 350 members of congress and 22 state governors, whose strings they share with the drug cartels, oil companies and Wall Street, are the real terrorists, they are ISIS, they are al Qaeda, they are war incarnate.

While pointing the finger at Hillary or George Soros, easy targets I admit, they are the planners of Libya, Benghazi, the backers of Boko Harum, of Al Qaeda and ISIS.  When you want to grow up and ask hard questions, ask yourself why the bloated neocon princess, wife of the Kagan brothers, was anointed by Hillary Clinton to destroy Ukraine.

The rats are picking Ukraine clean while their fascist politics, with the help of a carefully orchestrated refugee crisis, is taking down Europe.  Take the 6 minutes and 27 seconds and sit through the South Front video.  Begin to think about the state of the world when while we are bankrupting Russia and pushing China into war, our “allies” are this pack of clowns:

I do so enjoy listening to Trump.  These things I can tell, he has a low order intelligence, is deeply flawed and essentially a caricature of himself, a cartoon of a cartoon.  He is also two of Mitt Romney and godlike in comparison with Kasich or McCain or Jeb Bush.

Romney truly believes he can step into the presidency and there is a reason he has his hopes.  The GOP is feeding the Justice Department their files on Trump.  Romney looked really good, rehearsed, his spray tan gleaming, his suit a bit understuffed.  I remember Bush 43 and his huge bulletproof suit, covering his fat behind and narrow shoulders, an attempt to balance out his look between apish and “Gollum.”

Romney, on the other hand, does look really good and, if you listen to Trump’s speech, his “on his knees” comment, I begin to ask a question or two about Trump.  Then again, in a nation ruled by pedophiles the idea of questioning the nature of any adult on adult relationship or human on human, if that term is clearer, violates America’s real moral standards such as they are.

In 2012, friends in the FBI came to VT with proof of Romney’s complicity in organized crime, drug running with his partner Carlos Salinas and his backdoor deal with Castro and the “KGB.”  The recordings of the interviews are on YouTube.

Whatever my own opinion of Trump, he is head and shoulders above the GOP crowd and has introduced a new level of clarity of speech to American politics.  The only problem I have is that much of what he says is poorly considered and the result of “pressure of speech” brought on by what I can only guess is ADD.  I don’t think he really means the crazy things he says and is much less a “danger” than he sounds.

I also don’t see him as having any administrative ability or personal energy, which still puts him ahead of the pack.

As for the Democrats, right now it is Hillary, and as it looks, unless she is murdered, she will be president.  Her domestic agenda is outstanding but it is also clear she is being “operated” as far as foreign policy by a hidden force that doesn’t like the United States very much.  That said, simply talking about this, especially those of us who are getting older and who are totally stupid, this is painful.  I remember Ike, Nixon and Reagan, poisonous toads who should have been strangled in the crib yet were miles beyond “W,” the greatest human monstrosity of our era, any nation, any species.

The real risk with Trump is that the mob can’t buy him and he doesn’t share the dreams of the rest of the GOP, buttered up little boys and dancing at the side of Tony Scalia, a gleeful exaltation to the angel of light.

VT is for the most part a boys club, not entirely, but as far as publications go, VT staffers are more bar fighters than bible thumpers.  There are truths in this, that memory we have and we hope we share with others, running the clocks back, for some of us to the eras of long dead presidents, Roosevelt (Prime Minister’s as well, such as Churchill), Truman, Ike and such.

It’s afternoon recess, we get the worn softball out of the box, the taped up bat and head out onto the playground.  Some kids stay behind, some play jump rope with the girls, perhaps developing skills others of us would wish we had gained.

Others hold onto teacher’s skirts waiting for the bell to allow them to return to the safety and warmth of their desks.  Those kids, the ones never picked, who left so many paths untrod, those are our national leaders.

When you look at the GOP candidates, Jeb or Kasish or Cruz or Rubio or Trump, even Romney, these are those kids, the ones we long forgot who reappeared later in life as backstabbing sneaks or the smiling faces for crime syndicates.

Tell me I am wrong.

    How about boycotting the elections? As more and more people refuse to vote, the chances of a third party coming on stage become larger. Why are Americans and Anglos so hopelessly two-party?

    I really enjoyed watching Bernie throw Henry Kissinger under the bus. He even commented on the 1953 coup in Egypt. Then I looked for articles and responses from the controlling media and all I heard were crickets. I don’t think any major newspapers and TV mentioned the Bernie/HK stance but could be wrong-
    Also, during Trump’s response to Mitt Phony, there was some very loud screaming from a protester and I didn’t see any story on it afterwards. Soon the pitchfork crowd at the Blond Werewolf’s rallies will end up seriously injuring the protesters, I bet it will get worse and worse-
    The Republican party is open like a cadaver being dissected on a table

  6. cynthiamaccioli  March 4, 2016 at 5:44 am

    I don’t know what all this hoopla is about. I learned my lesson loud and clear voting for Obama. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the Democrats and Rethuglicans? Are they not both sides of the same coin? Please, dear God tell me, why would anyone with a brain play in to this charade and vote for either of these Israel firster candidates? Why would anyone vote when their vote means absolutely nothing, as Scalia attested to. It escapes me. I can’t even dignify listening to these cretins must less vote ever again in this corrupt cesspool known as America.

    • Amelius  March 4, 2016 at 11:56 am

      Many people are still falling for the illusion of choice. They are usually outspoken about their favourite candidate, until that candidate wins and turns out to be another dud. All of the sudden it’s as if their vote didn’t help put another dud in the White House. I think if people are going to fall for the false paradigm of red vs blue partisan politics and vote for one of these pre selected Manchurian candidates, then they had also better be ready to accept some responsibility for the detrimental effects their Manchurian candidate has on the country and the world. Voting is giving consent and if people are not willing to accept some responsibility for the atrocities committed by the one they vote for, then they shouldn’t be voting at all. There is no red vs blue, there is only purple, the right and left wing of the same bird, a double sided coin.

    • Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor  March 4, 2016 at 12:18 pm

      Yes, I can. When Obama wanted to regulate derivatives as part of the firewall to protect the country from shot number 2 from Wall Street, the Democratic caucus was 100% behind the effort. But 100% of the Republicans were for it. So a lot of people miss things like this, mainly anger driven. Once they are pissed at someone politically anything they hear negative they will instantly believe and pass on, and even if they don’t believe it because they want them gone. But this “there is no difference” is bandied about way to often and takes the focus of analyzing each situation as they come along. Would the Republicans have done the Iran deal that Obama did? I submit that that there was not a snowball’s chance in hell that they would have. Did Obama push back in the Israelis way more than Bush (43), to the extent that Bibi worked to remove him in the mid term election? Yes. But did that effect our long term Israel policy? No.

    • Jozsef V.  March 4, 2016 at 3:28 pm

      I’ve heard it said that D and R are two cheeks of the same a$$.

    • Amelius  March 5, 2016 at 10:55 am

      Hi Jim. I’d like to start by saying I respect you and veterans today a great deal. For what its worth, I do give respect to Obama for the Iran deal. The republicans would not have done it, but I think whoever wins in 2016 will do their best to sabatoge it anyways. Did Obama not recently agree to increase America’s illegal aid to Israel to five billion American tax dollars per year, as opposed to three? Obama appointed an Israeli IDF veteran, whose father was a member of the Israeli terrorist Igurn gang, Rahm Emanuel, as his chief of staff. Do you think that was his choice, or something he was expected to do by his Jewish handlers like Penny Pritzker, Betty Lu Saltzman, Valerie Jarret, Lester Crown, and Abner Mikva (All Jews)? What I see, Jim, is a system where political hopefuls stand in line to sell their influence for campaign contributions. Regardless of who wins, it’s more costly, illegal wars in foreign lands. Wars that have nothing to do with America. The system is broken, so to me, it makes no sense to build a foundation that has been compromised, because the structure will just continue to fall apart.

    Henry Ford’s protocols of Zion play out nicely, again!

    All things considered, humanity experiences progress, due to technology. Not because the avarage human morality has evolved to more human standards, but because the real, human scientists have invented and applied technology to be used for better and improving living standards into the future.

    As in Science fiction stories, we will see humans moving around in future worlds, filled with computers, robots, androids and all the knowledge they need to produce anything they want, by just pushing a few buttons.

  9. Bony_Morony  March 4, 2016 at 4:23 am

    Butt… skipping Vietnam shows at least some kinda intelligence. Especially as it later turned out to be initiated with a false flag incident (Tonkin) – okay, that is nothing special for US “interventions”. The even bigger irony regarding the causes for the intervention in Vietnam is: Having a look at the global social and society-systems now – communism probably would have been the better choice, because worse would be a real challenge to achieve – but we´ll never know.

    It’s all coming back to me now… One of those curious chants those girls liked to voice concerned a reiteration of the nomenclature of the customary condiments for European comestibles : salt, mustard, vinegar, pepper…. They let me join in sometimes!

  11. awareadams  March 3, 2016 at 10:48 pm

    Like most readers i value and respect Gordon’s knowledge and insight.
    I would venture a prediction on the 2016 election: US politics is more racial and ethnic dominated than admitted publicly. This year there will be a huge backlash against blacks and Democrats as a result of the Ferguson, Missouri riots, the strikes against police here in Chicago, etc.. Similar backlash probably enabled Nixon to eek past Humphrey in 1968. It will help Trump in 2016. Blacks will be the most potent force helping Republicans in 2016.
    Trump’s criticism of the Mexican and central American immigrants hits a huge substantive following. Even Hispanics here in Chicago favour limiting more illegal immigration.
    Finally, a $64 question: what will be the status of the invasion of Syria in October and November, 2016? This war and its domestic impact will become an issue as the election nears.

    This is a bit of a trick question, but let’s see the answer. What is the evidence pointing to any Trump ties to organized crime? Hopefully a bit more than Ted Cruz’s empty nonsense about S&A Concrete.

  14. Leif Oldhart  March 3, 2016 at 9:10 pm

    There’s some great rhetoric here! Gordon Duff should have run for President. Trump’s level of conversation with his voters is sufficient and acceptable for most of them, so why knock it? How many people do you know who inherited or came into big money and either blew it or lost it. If Trump turned millions into billions, mostly legitimately, again, why criticize? You’ve got to love the way everything he does that would be the kiss of death for any other candidate only makes him more popular. The Republican leadership so truly abhors Donald Trump that it’s very unlikely he is a plant.His words with Oprah, 25 years ago also pass the muster. One thing for sure: whatever occurs, the Republican party will never be the same and the people who have been kept silent by fear of job loss or shunning are not going to put on the muzzle again. Still it would have been great to have a candidate who could inform them just what a poisonous toad Eisenhower really was. I wonder if Trump knows about that. I’ll bet he does.

  15. michalslahor  March 3, 2016 at 7:32 pm

    Gordon said, “Hillary, and as it looks, unless she is murdered, she will be president. Her domestic agenda is outstanding” What exactly is her domestic agenda, SHE HAS NONE, except for identity politics, so if your a fat lesbian or promiscuous homosexual she may appeal to them, but other than that she has no political agenda, other than to defraud the US taxpayers and pocket it, her opinions change based on who pays her, and please Gordon, don’t insult people’s intelligence when you are on record saying you like her domestic policies! Like what breaking Glass-Steagal, opening the derivative market, cutting food stamps to poor people, and defrauding Haitian earthquake victims using her Clinton foundation (she gave them 10mil of pocketed the rest 170 million and this was split 50/50 with the Bush family). Clintons have been in bed with the bushes since Mena, and yes Gordon, there was drug smuggling there. Romney is the Mormon Mafia, as much as I hate the homosexual Muslim in Chief, I encouraged people to vote for him just to stop Romney. Trump has zero ties to organized crime, unless you considered every land developer in NY who deals with Unions a mobster. Hillary has no domestic agenda other than the status-quo, but worse since she is even more of a stuffed pants suit than Obama, “what difference does it make” “we came, we say, he died” and she cackles. Huma/HillDog should both indicted. Her speeches are painful, she lies and SHOUTS instead of talking.

    • captain obvious  March 4, 2016 at 4:40 am

      agree. you left out her NAFTA-GATT insider info to jump onto the board of directors of Walmart to sell Chinese goods, expand into every little city possible bankrupting thousands of smaller retailers to cancel MILLIONS of related JOBS, with her butt laughing all the way to the bank. economic sabotage is TREASON, she should be imprisoned and asset stripped!

    Trump, according to today’s Haaretz newspaper “is decimating the three legs of blanket Republican support for Israel: Evangelicals, Jews and interventionist hawks.” According to Chemi Shalel, the reporter – “The notion that the Republican Party is a monolithic bastion of support that will withstand the test of time is evaporating. The belief that any Republican president who will follow Obama will be better for Israel is eroding with each passing day. Faced with the Trump phenomenon, Netanyahu’s Fortress GOP strategy is collapsing like a house of cards.”

    • US-First  March 3, 2016 at 6:44 pm

      Chemi Shalev, mea culpa.

  17. ProtectUSA1st  March 3, 2016 at 5:20 pm

     No Question, all these Attacks came, after Trump said, he is ‘NEUTRAL” on Palestine – Israel Issue.
     Governor Christie (NJ), thank you, for telling Donald Trump for telling him NOT TO DROP OUT.
     Mitt Romney, you are correct calling “The American Voters Suckers”, we admit most of us are.
     Why are “American Voters Suckers”? Because the USA Media is owned by “Yours & the Corrupt, Donkeys, Traitors, ISRAELIE-American Zionists, that make the American Voters, Dumb & Dumber.
     Romney__ Correct us, if we are wrong, the ISRAELIE-American Zionists Media keeps telling us, the “ONLY American Foreign Policy is ISRAEL, for 70-years, since USA & UK Planted the Cancer Israel.
     You called Trump__ Fraud, Con man, Phony, Fake, etc.,
     The “Question” is?__ if you ask & got “Trump’s Endorsement” for your own Presidential Run in 2012,
    What kind of a person will that makes you? __ Fraud, Con man, Phony, Fake, etc.?

  18. MCPOSSRETIRED  March 3, 2016 at 5:14 pm

    I see your statement about Trump being a draft dodger. I have searched the internet for any military service by any of the politicians in this race and came up empty. Cruz has been a politician his entire adult life and so has Rubio. Please do not point fingers at Trump when Cruz and Rubio have never served.

  19. JHolland  March 3, 2016 at 4:27 pm

    This may be the truth, but really its not news. Anyone who expects a candidate for the American presidency to be free of any taint is asking for a lot. Similarly, anyone who expects an American president to do anything with any frequency that lies outside the interests of the RKM is naive.
    A thing to remember is that to vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil.

  21. Wanderer  March 3, 2016 at 3:55 pm

    Thanks for the laugh you pathetic shill. Hillary will be going to jail with the rest of the puppets. You know damn well who she’s aligned with and working for. And you know damn well the Dems are every bit as bought and sold as the GOP.

    Jack (wanderer): One of the things VT has been working for is eliminating its “internet people” readers. They are a shit demographic of people who live in mama’s basement and play with themselves.

    Anyone stupid enough to believe in the Hillary email investigation belongs on InfoWars, not here. We are not here to cater to dumb shits. We don’t get paid to do this and we sure as hell don’t peddle “male enhancement,” something that seems to go well with stupidity.

    We have no ads, no girlie pictures, we do peddle assault weapons, my only personal vice. We allow all rational points of view which shocks people who show up here for their emotional fix, the weak minded and chronically depressed.

    If you aren’t up to speed, simply go away. The problem here, we have several opposing comments but none of them are remotely literate or even reality based. How in the hell have people like this become regular VT readers or are they sent here from time to time in order to convince me that we need to sell login licenses.

    We are worth it. Jim Dean will look into it I am afraid.

    • Wanderer  March 4, 2016 at 4:58 am

      Sounds like you’re the one who has a fascination for mom’s basement and internet porn, Jackass. You’re mighty brave posting such from the safety of your keyboard. If you were standing infront of me, you little pantywaist, we would see how brave you really are. Duff knows the Clintons are every bit as dirty as the Bush camp. And so do you, you cowardly piece of shit.

    • Worker Bee  March 4, 2016 at 7:26 pm

      Sorry Wanderer, but you will have to get a decent portion of us lumpenproletariat on board with you if you want to defeat the NWO (or whatever else they are called), since they have won pretty much all the battles over the last three centuries where there was not a mass popular movement against them. We can be useful at least as cannon fodder, even when we are otherwise too stupid to live.

  23. adil  March 3, 2016 at 3:36 pm

    Like it or not but Trump is only outsider in the race. And what draft dodgers? Are you angry that some people didn’t agree to kill kids in Vietnam?

    • adil  March 3, 2016 at 3:51 pm

      I read your article now 🙂
      Boy you do hate Trump for telling truth as it is.! And your love for Hillary knows no bounds.! Hillary the same person who threatens and silences sex crime victims of her dummy hubby who is not father of her kid.! Talk about distinctions family.! And you want to see her president of ussa?

      And trump is not criminal like Romney.! Romney never had any job. He made money by being insider to banking cabal. On other hand trump created real stuffs.! And what is this bs about iq and all? Give it up. Vt is burning down with sense less hate against only outsider in the race.

      Koch brothers and all is OK. What about 100% liberal media support for Democrats or let’s put it this way – for insiders? If we have to put money then such media support is worth billions or trillions of dollars.!!!!

      Immigrants must be put to rat hole.! Seriously, they are slimes of the world. If ussa like them then please keep them. Don’t ask them to use pay parity to enslave us. These slimes buy properties with their ussa money in India and all. How do you think I am supposed to match their price? Whole nation is enslaved by these slimes

  24. ManCavePatriot  March 3, 2016 at 3:16 pm

    Gordon, your psychological breakdown of the candidates and critics is perceptive. Are we seeing the cumulative result of years of MKUltra mind control on these ‘children of the corn’? Trump’s speech pattern of constantly repeat a phrase indicates some sort of influence. I have never read where elite children are exempt from such exposure.

  25. Linda Walling  March 3, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    As Mike Harris has to keep pointing out, the folks picking the Ukraine clean are Bolsheviks, not fascists. This article is painted with such broad strokes of generalization that it seems fairly meaningless to me. One has to make distinctions. I don’t see the details of Trump’s personality or even IQ as significant as some of the very pointed things that come out of his campaign, terminology such as referring to the other candidates as “globalists” — code for Trump and his backers being interested in this nation being restored to rule of law and regaining national sovereignty. Someone has Trump’s back or else he would have been Ross Perot-ed by now. If there are white hats in the US government and military–and I believe there are–it is pretty clear to me that they must feel very encouraged by the energy and enthusiasm of the US people, who collectively may just be a little smarter than they are given credit for.

    Erdogan and Merkel are working on a new deal to stem the flow of refugees into Europe. In exchange for reducing the flow of refugees, Merkel said Germany could speed up the move towards visa-free travel to the EU for Turks and accelerate the EU membership talks for Turkey. What a concept! Reduce the flow of refugees displaced by the West’s terrorist proxy forces (IS and al-Qaeda), and increase the flow of Turkish citizens instead. Brussels plan to allow Turks access to EU visas – in exchange for their country’s help with the Syrian migration crisis – has been branded as ‘bordering on insanity’.
