The Sea Island Conspiracy

Over the long weekend before the Mississippi and Michigan primaries, the sky above Sea Island was black with corporate jets.

aeiApple’s Tim Cook, Google’s Larry Page and Eric Schmidt, Napster’s Sean Parker, Tesla Motors’ Elon Musk, and other members of the super-rich were jetting in to the exclusive Georgia resort, ostensibly to participate in the annual World Forum of the American Enterprise Institute.

Among the advertised topics of discussion:“Millennials: How Much Do They Matter and What Do They Want?”

That was the cover story.

As revealed by the Huffington Post, Sea Island last weekend was host to a secret conclave at the Cloisters where oligarchs colluded with Beltway elites to reverse the democratic decisions of millions of voters and abort the candidacy of Donald Trump. [At Secretive Meeting, Tech CEOs And Top Republicans Commiserate, Plot To Stop Trump, March 7, 20160]

againstAmong the journalists at Sea Island were Rich Lowry of National Review, which just devoted an entire issue to the topic: “Against Trump,” and Arthur Sulzberger, publisher of the Trumphobic New York Times.

Bush guru Karl Rove of FOX News was on hand, as were Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. Lindsey Graham, dispatched by Trump in New Hampshire and a berserker on the subject of the Donald.

So, too, was William Kristol, editor of the rabidly anti-Trump Weekly Standard, who reported back to comrades: “The key task now, to … paraphrase Karl Marx, is less to understand Trump than to stop him.”

Kristol earlier tweeted that the Sea Island conclave is “off the record, so please do consider my tweets from there off the record.”

Redeeming itself for relegating Trump to its entertainment pages, the Huffington Post did the nation a service in lifting the rug on “something rotten in the state.”

What we see at Sea Island is that, despite all their babble about bringing the blessings of “democracy” to the world’s benighted, AEI, Neocon Central, believes less in democracy than in perpetual control of the American nation by the ruling Beltway elites.

If an outsider like Trump imperils that control, democracy be damned. The elites will come together to bring him down, because, behind party ties, they are soul brothers in the pursuit of power.

Something else was revealed by the Huffington Post–a deeply embedded corruption that permeates this capital city.

The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research is a 501(c)(3) under IRS rules, an organization exempt from U.S. taxation.

Million-dollar corporate contributions to AEI are tax-deductible.

This special privilege, this freedom from taxation, is accorded to organizations established for purposes such as “religious, educational, charitable, scientific, literary … or the prevention of cruelty to children or animals.”

What the co-conspirators of Sea Island were up at the Cloisters was about as religious as what the Bolsheviks at that girls school known as the Smolny Institute were up to in Petrograd in 1917.

From what has been reported, it would not be extreme to say this was a conspiracy of oligarchs, War Party neocons, and face-card Republicans to reverse the results of the primaries and impose upon the party, against its expressed will, a nominee responsive to the elites’ agenda.

And this taxpayer-subsidized “Dump Trump” camarilla raises even larger issues.

Now America is not Russia or Egypt or China.

But all those countries are now moving purposefully to expose U.S. ties to nongovernmental organizations set up and operating in their capital cities.

Many of those NGOs have had funds funneled to them from U.S. agencies such as the National Endowment for Democracy, which has backed “color-coded revolutionscredited with dumping over regimes in Serbia, Ukraine and Georgia.

In the early 1950s, in Iran and Guatemala, the CIA of the Dulles brothers did this work.

Whatever ones thinks of Vladimir Putin, can anyone blame him for not wanting U.S. agencies backing NGOs in Moscow, whose unstated goal is to see him and his regime overthrown?

And whatever one thinks of NED and its subsidiaries, it is time Americans took a hard look at the tax-exempt foundations, think tanks and public policy institutes operating in our capital city.

How many are like AEI, scheming to predetermine the outcome of presidential elections while enjoying tax exemptions and posturing as benign assemblages of disinterested scholars and seekers of truth?

How many of these tax-exempt think tanks are fronts and propaganda organs of transnational corporations that are sustained with tax-deductible dollars, until their “resident scholars” can move into government offices and do the work for which they have been paid handsomely in advance?

How many of these think tanks take foreign money to advance the interests of foreign regimes in America’s capital?

We talk about the “deep state” in Turkey and Egypt, the unseen regimes that exist beneath the public regime and rule the nation no matter the president or prime minister.

What about the “deep state” that rules us, of which we caught a glimpse at Sea Island?

A diligent legislature of a democratic republic would have long since dragged America’s deep state out into the sunlight.

  1. This gathering at Sea Island sounds like the clandestine gathering of elites at Jekyll Island in 1910 where they conspired to create the Federal Reserve.

    Please God! Raise up a leader who can deliver us from these evil men who have a stranglehold on America!

  3. Hillary is a stinking pile of excrement. Trump says a few things that are off, but is being pilloried by the fascist establishment as a “fascist”. Trump’s views on trade and trying to survive rather than starting a final nuclear war are attractive. I like Sanders, but I think the establishment regime and turkeys willing to vote for harpies despite proof of war crimes makes Trump the real hope. God help us if it is the Harpy versus an establishment neocon, including Cruz.

    propaganda creates our culture for us, the rules that we live by….but that propaganda has its origin in these nonprofit foundations and think tanks.

    The nonprofit foundations and think tanks are funded by the plutocrats and big corporations.

    Then the nonprofit foundations and think tanks give grants to academicians and activists and writers,who in turn create propaganda, propaganda favorable to the interests of the plutocrats and big corporations.

    The propaganda finds its way into the media, into the educational curriculum and into hollywood…and that is how our culture is formed.

    The platforms of both the liberal and conservative political parties are influenced by and even largely based on this propaganda.

    The civil rights movement, for example, was in part a product of this propaganda.

    The civil rights movement was in part a propaganda coup by Capital to increase the supply of workers and consumers and thus increase economic growth and corporate profits.

    Same thing for mass immigration. The nonprofits create pro-immigrant propaganda, which is dispersed into society, thus raising the social status of immigrants. That is why the media went nuts when Trump said some immigrants are rapists–his statement counteracted the pro-immigrant propaganda, and thus had the potential to slow immigration and drop profits.

  9. Dear Mr Buchanan,

    The folks at the A.E.I. have “proven” to be” The True Tyrants of Terror of our Time” .

    The amount of war fraud and terror fraud heaped on the American people by this gang of belligerent frauds is unprecedented in our time.

    They have single handedly looted our nation of nearly $19,000,000,000,000.00 of wealth it doesn’t have, to fight never ending bogus wars of aggression in the middle east.

    They have robbed us of trillions to exterminate millions.

    How evil is that ?

    The A.E.I…the Neocons…and the O.S.P….and their ilk shouldn’t be found ‘conspiring” to destroy our country , (even more than they already have), on “Sea Island”.

    They should, instead, be remaindered to Guantanamo “Island” to ruminate over the heinous crimes they have committed….until the end of their days.

    If there is one ‘legitimate’ reason to leave Guantanamo open…it is for this purpose.

  10. more dog-and-and pony. If Trump were a substantial threat to the Zionist/globalist Occupation Government, he’d have been taken down already…a plane crush, or some such. What the banksters/billionaires et al. have spent so far to stop him is mere pocket change to them. At the most, they find his class treason somewhat irritating and embarrassing. From my hardRight viewpoint, Trump’s real utility lies in taking down the Republiscam pty via a contested Convention. To which end I made a financial contribution to Gov. Kasich, in the hopes that he can block Trump in Ohio, while the execrable Cruz keeps collecting enough delegates in other states to prevent the Donald from getting 1237

    put another way: is there anyone here stupid enough to believe that a President Trump would/could actually “build the wall” and “evict the illegals”, rewrite trade treaties, etc.? Esp. in view of the fact that the central banking system, Congress, and the bureaucracy will, no matter who wins, remain entirely under Zionist/globalist control? Were he even to make the attempt, he would be impeached, convicted, and removed w/in a week. It would take a bloody mass uprising cum Civil War, then a Hitler or a Stalin to break the current System and create a new one. That’ll happen by and by, but Trump is only an early, warning zephyr of the coming storm

  13. No wonder the AEI, Kristol and other Zionist oligarchs hate Iran’s ‘Theocracy’.

    Last month, ahead of Iranian elections, country’s Spiritual Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei warned the nation against enemy plots to exercise influence in country’s upcoming elections. He said that as usual America is going to challenge the decision by the Guardian Council that is responsible for censoring the corrupt and of lose-character people contesting the elections. Such censorship is considered not kosher in the western practiced democracy aka Dollarcracy…

  14. This is a really great piece by Mr. Buchanan. I’d add too that one of the worst things about this network of NGOs is how often you’ll find close personal links between the people who staff one NGO and another or between these same people and senior journalists. Now that we live in a time when both women and men can play the role of technocrat, these tax-exempt NGOs and think tanks form a social network as tight and interconnected as any royal court of the 18th century.

  19. What concerns me is that the odds actually favor these CEOs and power brokers. Truly effective grass-roots movements of plebeians are very, very rare. Control of social institutions DOES matter. Without them, plebes cannot communicate or organize.

    The Trump phenomenon exposes real dissatisfaction that has been simmering for quite some time, but this sentiment has been suppressed by the oligarchic media. Google, Facebook, etc. all have the ability to censor so-called “hate speech.” Nearly all officially-sanctioned forms of entertainment have been transformed into propaganda — just look at the NFL. Control of a political party, and the ability to choose candidates, is another important method of elite control.

    The problem as I see it is that Trump is sui generis. His movement is a one-off event based on his own individual wealth and personality. Are there any other people out there with Trump’s money and public profile and willingness to speak out who haven’t already been muzzled by the oligarchy? Not that I can see. If Trump is defeated by the oligarchs there will be no one left to give voice to the dissatisfied, and it will be back to “business as usual.”

  24. The very rapid race-replacement of The Historic Native Born White American Working Class is driven by the monumental-vaulting MEGA GREED of THE WHITE MALE GREEDY CHEATING MEGA-CEO PARASITES who are also political liberals.

    You don’t hear anymore talk about a high wage economy anymore do you?

    The real issue is post-Trump politics because of the nonwhite demographic tsunami. Millions of White Males are in a fantasy land where if Trump can just get elected he will make the economy humming again with high wage jobs…and White Guys can go back to smoking cigars with their buddies, and go back to listening to fat-slug-lump-of-slime-mold-bulging -cellulite-through thick brown coudoroy-pants of physical dissipation-Mike Francessa on WFAN-back to jock-sniffing Fantasy “WHAT A STUD” Football…Not gonna happen. Too much damage has been done…Trump too little too late.

    The only viable option for millions of Native Born White American Males:

    1)Native Born White American racially xenophobic Anarcho-Syndicalism

    2)Vlad the Impaler treatment for the Greeding-Cheating-White-Male-Liberal MEGA-CEO..They will wish they were never born!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3)Massive solidarity with Sky Blue SU-35 ISIS killing Conservative Orthodox Christian Russia-for Russia is clearly the only hope for a sick and dying Europa and Native Born White America.

    If Hillary Clinton wins on Nov 8..2016..it is not the end of the world….it is when the Native Born White American Male Race Revolt commences!!!!!..Its an opportunity….

  28. Charles Murray needs to eat. He knows what the limits are working at the AEI.

    Shortly after he wrote “Coming Apart”, I had a short email exchange with him regarding what to me would Result of mass illegal immigration of low IQ persons, as well as its impact on the welfare of the working class. He neither denied or admitted the connection, and said he only had so much time, and of course nothing ever came of it. There is no doubt, academic work arguing that mass immigration is bad for the average US citizen is a third rail at the AEI.

    Ultimately this is why “coming apart” lacks coherence because it only describes the symptoms of the collapse of the middle and working classes, and then it dances around the trade and immigration policies behind the collapse. “The Bell Curve” by comparison lays all the data on the table, and one cannot help but make the obvious policy conclusions.

    I give him a pass. He is just a worker bee, and vulnerable to the whims of his masters.

  29. Sure.

    I think it is a stretch to call AEI “neo-con”. Or, at the very least it points to the limitations of, and confusion surrounding, the phrase.

    The original neo-cons were liberal social scientists who, in the 1960s, had the intellectual honesty to admit that their research tended to show that old social arrangements were better than what the left was trying to replace them with, and also that empirical evidence tended to show that massive government intervention was not working out as intended. For this they were denounced by their former friends and allies on the left. Michael Harrington (leftist) coined the term “neo-conservative” as an insult. Irving Kristol embraced it and tried to make it over as a term of approbation, and he was largely successful in doing so. Some others (Moynihan, Daniel Bell) went back to the left. And others like Glazer tried to stay more or less centrist. But this latter group rejected the term.

    All these guys were liberal internationalist Cold War anti-Communists, as was the entire mainstream left at the time. But as the New Left pulled the Democratic Party much further in the direction of anti-anti-Communism, the “neo-cons” remained anti-Coms and began to drift to the Republicans.

    Norman Podhoretz is considered a neo-con, and considers himself one, but he didn’t come to it the way Kristol’s generation did. He was a literary guy (Lionel Trilling student) not a social scientist. He started to drift right, first, over cultural and racial issues and secondarily over foreign policy.

    What united these factions was opposition to “détente,” which is to say, they came together because of what they saw as Nixon and Ford being too soft on the commies. This lead to the creation of “Team B” and most of them signing up with Reagan.

    As to AEI, it goes back to WW2 and business opposition to the feds wanting to keep all that central planning that they established during the war. There was also at the time a real intellectual current that the Soviets had proved that a planned economy was better, they were the wave of the future and we had better change to be more like them or else they would bury us. AEI was founded by the business community to oppose that.

    Kristol joined AEI in (I think) 1976. This was considered a big deal at the time. He was the first one and he brought others, many of them a sort of Reagan staff in exile. Many then joined Reagan in the government, though Kristol did not, and returned to AEI after Reagan was gone (Bush mostly purged his admin of intellectuals, and not just neo-cons).

    AEI in the Clinton era especially was second only to Hoover as THE place where Republican worthies would go after government service was over. They had a very eminent collection of people.

    What really got AEI identified as “neo-con” were the scholars that assembled there in the 1990s who opposed Clinton foreign policy, at least the early foreign policy, Also, the Weekly Standard was founded in 1995 and moved into the same building. So you had Kristol father and son literally on different floors of the same building. Then there was PNAC, which is a long story, but the basic idea was—Clinton is weak on foreign policy, America could lose its post Cold War preeminence, here are all the things we should be doing to stay on top.

    This crowd more or less served as unofficial (and sometimes unasked) intellectuals for the post 9.11 strategy and the Iraq war. By this time “neo-conservatism” had lost any connection to its domestic policy roots and when people said “neo-con” they meant “assertive hawkish US foreign policy” and also “naïve attempts to spread democracy where it will never take root.” Oh and to some it also meant “Jew.”

    It’s funny because DeMuth, who rain AEI during that time, was a very sober-minded man and regulatory expert. Yet he’s the one who beefed up the foreign policy shop with all those “naivecons”. Arthur Brooks, who replaced DeMuth, is a much more stereotypical neocon in temperament (messianic belief that all the problems of the world can be fixed) but he fired many of AEI’s neocons and dramatically downsized its foreign policy operation. Though, one must admit, he kept many of the key neocons as well.

    However, AEI was and is always more than just the neocons, and is known as neo-con primarily for the foreign policy shop circa 1993-2007 or so, but that shop has been largely dismantled.

    Murray is a neo-con in the original sense: a data-driven social scientist. I don’t think he self-identifies as such, but the similarities are there.

  30. I wish Trump would pick Elizabeth Warren to be his running mate.

    Sanders would be a bad choice — Sanders has no leverage in the Senate (Congress), never having been a party member.
    Also, he’s old; it makes no sense to choose someone old to be “president-in-training;” it would make sense to put Elizabeth Warren in that position.

    I think Trump would have the ability to stare down the Congress, and Warren would have the legislative experience and agenda to propose useful policies.

    Warren on the GOP ticket would completely fracture the Republican-Democrat lock on electoral politics; and female Warren would satisfy those boomer bimbos who still think “there’s a special place in hell for women who do not vote for women” — even if said women is as murderous a pig as Hillary-Albright.

  32. One bit of childishness in the Huff Post piece is how it describes Sea Island as if it’s some sort of almost undiscovered island retreat that only the super-wealthy and well-connected have access to.

    It’s B.S. To get to Sea Island, you drive to Brunswick Ga, get on a multi-lane causeway to St. Simons Island, and then drive across a bridge spanning a narrow river to get there. Anyone can drive to, on, and around Sea Island. The bulk of the island is not taken up by the resort, but by houses. There’s no question but that Sea Island is a well-moneyed coastal retreat, but its openly accessible to anyone who wants to go there. Small point, but it illustrates how journalists will embellish a good story.

    As far as Trump goes, I’m not a fan, but I do find it revealing that the elites feel such a desperate need to save the voting public from themselves. As long as you vote the way they like, your vote counts. When not, . . . .

  33. That secret meeting was so secretive that everyone knows about it.

    Trump has obviously been picked to be the next president. I’m not sure why, but it is pretty obvious to me. And of course nothing will change (I feel bad for the lemmings that actually believe a wall will be built, etc.)

    But of course the sheep are falling for all that reverse psychology.

    My guess is the elites, having an instant read on the pulse of the population thanks to global 24/7 electronic surveillance, understood they needed a conduit for people to let out some steam; hence the Trump card.

    It’s like the elite bankers trashing the Federal Reserve proposal in all the major newspapers in 1913 to fool the sheeple… Reverse psychology. And the sheep fell for it.

    The best way to destroy a politician that poses a threat is to cut his/her media exposure (e.g. What they did to Ron Paul and what they are now doing to Marine Le Pen in France after her mounting success of the last couple years…)

    Trump is freaking EVERYWHERE. It’s Trump, Trump, Trump 24/7.

    So I know he will be the next “commander in chief”. And I know nothing will change.

  35. Flat conspiracy bullshit. These powers would love Trump IF the projections show him beating Hillary. But the projections show hime getting clobbered. Hillary is very beatable and these folks know it, she has a strongly unfavorable rating of 41%. Trump has a strongly unfavorable rating of 59%.

    Republican will lose congressional and senate seats with Trump at the head of the ticket. Head to head comparisons of potential candidates for president clearly show that Trump is the worst candidate the Republicans could have. The elites are, as usual, are thinking about their selfish interests.

    Come March 15th Trump will continue to win states and the Republican elites will reluctantly back him because if they don’t, the Republican party will splinter. Losing one presidential election is a far better option than splintering the party.

    I have not read one comment here and I am not going to read one comment here, you are overwhelmingly a pack of head up your ass ideologues, who emotionally believe in simple answers to complex questions. Buchanan completely misses the point as to why these elites are trying to stop Trump. He is going to get stomped by Hillary.

  36. You might very well be right Garttard, but what choice do we have?

    At least if we vote for Trump we’re voting against their Eternal War© in the Middle East. We’re voting against destroying more Syrian lives and as a repudiation of Bush/Obama’s wars on Iraq and Libya and Ukraine and Russia. We’re saying no to that. What more can we do?

    We’re telling the rest of the world that we aren’t all mindless savages and drooling, blood-stained orcs, just waiting to be assigned the next innocent victim for our military to ravage to the cheers of ‘USA, USA!!’.

    No, we’re saying that that is not what America is about. That is NOT who or what we are, regardless of the Zionist fiend that has our government and media by the hair of its head. We are voting to keep our souls intact. If it’s all a ruse, it’s on them, not us. For me, that’s something.

  40. You say it’s an annual thing, then claim it’s a secret conclave all about Trump. Well, which is it? Also, ever notice that the entire MSM and as many elites as possible are openly against Trump? Why would they need a secret meeting to talk about it? They could talk about it live on national television for as secret as they’ve been so far.

    No, what I think is going on here is that the rich and powerful get together alot regularly. They talk about something, whatever that may be. and of course they’re gonna talk about Trump. Why wouldn’t they?

  41. You are dead on, except it’s not Capital on top. We had a plutocracy of sorts in this country, way back when, and its last hoorah was before the New Deal. You can buy anything in this world, but you can’t buy the culture. Every damn foundation, university, think tank, etc. set up by the Money Power ends up as an asylum run by the inmates.

    Which isn’t to say the culture formers are fundamentally different from their money masters. Different but not different, if you know what I mean.

  54. “I think it is a stretch to call AEI “neo-con”. ”

    This is what Wikipedia says: “AEI grew out of the American Enterprise Association (AEA), which was founded in 1938 by a group of New York businessmen led by Lewis H. Brown. AEA’s original mission was to promote a “greater public knowledge and understanding of the social and economic advantages accruing to the American people through the maintenance of the system of free, competitive enterprise”.[16]”

    “AEI has a Council of Academic Advisers, chaired by George L. Priest, which includes Eliot A. Cohen, Martin Feldstein, R. Glenn Hubbard, Sam Peltzman, John L. Palmer, Jeremy A. Rabkin, and Richard J. Zeckhauser.[17] The Council of Academic Advisers selects the annual winner of the Irving Kristol Award.”

    Let’s see. In 1938, Irving Kristol was born in 1920, which means that he was 18 years old when AEI was first formed, still in his Trotskyite phase. “Kristol was born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of non-observant Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe.[4][5] He received his B.A. from the City College of New York in 1940, which was free to attend until the 1970s, where he majored in history and was part of a small but vocal Trotskyist anti-Soviet group who eventually became the New York Intellectuals.” Of course, Ronald Reagan was still deeply enamored of FDR at that time which was long before he became the original “Reagan Democrat.” RR was the one who made the fatal decision to allow the neocons under the Republican tent in 1980.

The Mexican government’s position is that you are welcome but Mexico is not going to support you.”

  57. Agree 100%. If I had to pick one or two phrases to characterize people I know, political demoralization or political bafflement might fit the bill. They’ve been, more or less, completely steamrollered, cudgeled, anaesthetized, gelded–or call it what you will.

    I once gathered up my wits and energy some years back for a whole mess of issue-oriented local speaking, radio, writing, and so on. I’m a pretty good salesman, usually, but after a couple of years of making a damned fool of myself, I was exhausted, and had done only the tiniest amount of good. I won’t do that again.

    The only grass-roots movement I think might make sense and force people to think about their role as sovereign citizens is a new constitutional convention, but all I’ve heard about the idea is Internet chatter from a few writers and academics.

    Agree, definitely, Trump is unique. I guess one article here tries to flesh out a “Trumpist” program that people can latch onto for the long haul.

  58. No, you are the intellectual impotent by thinking you can change things with a vote.

    This system was put in place via the most violent means every designed by men. It was done on an industrial scale in the first half of the 20th century.

    If you actually believe they will let it slip through their fingers through an “election”, you are seriously deluded.

    History proves that every single real change always comes through violence. Every single one!

    So spare me the haughty comment, ok.

    How do I know Trump is their guy? He is everywhere 24/7, with the fake opposition (to tap into the widespread disillusionment with the establishment) craftily doing its job. Every time a big “opposing” Trump happens his numbers goes up.

    Do you really think the establishment does not know that.

    That super duper secretive secret meeting of the elites at the bottom of an extinct volcano right smack in the middle of Galt’s gulch is one of the most intelligence-insulting ploys they’ve designed so far.

    But reading that type of stuff makes people like you, “Well, we will show them, those elites.” But I can see why you are all buying it.

    Yeah. Joe six packs is going to outsmart the elites. They are a million moves ahead of you, at all times. They are into all your emails, texts, phone conversations, Internet searches, buying habits, etc. Through all this they have an extremely accurate psychological profile of all of us. They can anticipate all your moves.

    But I understand why you are all buying this. It’s called desperation.

    If it’s any comfort, there will not be any differences regardless of who “wins”.

  63. Truly effective grass-roots movements of plebeians are very, very rare. Control of social institutions DOES matter. Without them, plebes cannot communicate or organize.

    Excellent analysis even if depressing.

    I think we have to look for elite conflict and then on some occasions the proles can throw their support one way or the other and extract a few crumbs.

    The killing part for me is that so many people realize what is going on but there is no organized opposition. The other side wins everything by default. They would likely win anyway, but we really don’t know for sure.

  64. “History proves that every single real change always comes through violence. Every single one!”

    There was little or no violence in the collapse of the Soviet Union. Apathy, complacency and cognitive inflexibility can also account for a lot.

    Modern elites believe that only specialist technocrats with impressive CVs can affect change and sometimes underestimate maveriks from unconventional backgrounds. In the 1920s no one thought Hitler would amount to anything, and when he did get into power, they thought he would be relatively easy to bribe or manipulate.

    One of the reasons Trump is successful is because he has spend decades studying how the election process works in the US, and is now applying this knowledge to his own election campaign. Another is that he keeps his cards close to his chest – his policies are very vague, and therefore neither his opponents or supporters really know what he will do when he gets into office (and in many cases he probably doesn’t even know himself).

    Most of those who support him know he may fail them, but they would rather vote for an unknown quantity than an unstablishment candidate who is guaranteed to let them down.

    While his rise in the polls is attributed to his challenging the establishment and the political status quo, let’s look at the many ways Donald Trump, when it comes to his political positions, represents that very same status quo. From the Fed, to war, to civil liberties, the “anti-establishment”? Trump takes no positions not already endorsed by the establishment.

    That’s not quite right. But you did open the door to a very important topic of discussion of very great importance to the continues existence of The Historic Native Born White American Working Class.

    Violence and the threat of violence has played crucial role in expanding the cage for The Native Born White American Working Class. Violence and the threat of violence is more often than not a countereaction to the violence of powerfull Private Tyrannies.

    Right now I am reading about the role that John Coulter….Anne Coulter’s father…in the crushing of the Miners strike against the Phelps-Dodge Mining Company in Arizona which set into motion the massive union busting hat ocuured during the Reagan Years ,Bush Years,..and continued through-out the Clinton Years. John Coulter was a truly evil man.

    Richard Spencer

    If you are pro-Native Born White American Labor…there is no case for “free” trade. Moreover, on a theoretical level, the case for “Free” Trade pivots on the validity of the principle of comparative advantage.The principle of comparative advantage has taken a very good beating over the years in debate in economic journals. The case for “free” trade has been rip to pieces statiscally…”Kicking Away the Ladder”…and theoretically by Herman Daly,Ravi Batra and many others.

    Moreover, the econometric case for the “price factor equalization theorem” is nonexistent..however, the theorem mathematically makes it very clear that free trade is a substitute for imported nonwhite scab labor…..

    You can thank Gorbachev for that. He refused to sign an order than the Soviet Generals were pressuring him to sign to send Soviet tanks into Moscow and bring the Russian Federation to heel. Russian Federation tanks were in Moscow protecting Yeltsin’s government.

    It might have been interesting Russian tanks manned by Russians facing off identical Soviet tanks manned by mostly Russians. Who shoots first?

    It seems both the controlled, beltway right, and controlled beltway left are working for the overthrow of the Constitution, globalism via endless war and the transformation of the USA and formerly white, Western nation states into multiracial slave labor colonies and police states. They merely differ on the details of how to take us there.

And funny how racism, nativism and xenophobia is being ruthlessly stamped out in every white, Western nation except Israel. And even funnier, how they haven’t been asked to share in blood and treasure for their madcap desire to remake the Middle East.

  86. “No, you are the intellectual impotent by thinking you can change things with a vote.”

    If millions of whites collectively put their foot down, it has been demonstrated that power can shift. Moreover, there are a number of instances in American history where citizens initiated monumental changes through the ballot, not the bullet. Progressive Era reforms, for example, like the Meat Packing Act.

    “This system was put in place via the most violent means every designed by men. It was done on an industrial scale in the first half of the 20th century.”


    Right, because New Deal programs and Civil Rights legislation, for example, were “allowed” by these high-powered individuals.

    “If you actually believe they will let it slip through their fingers through an “election”, you are seriously deluded.”

    There is no delusion on my part. Perhaps you ought to look inwardly.

    “History proves that every single real change always comes through violence. Every single one! So spare me the haughty comment, ok.”

    Please define “real change”.

    “How do I know Trump is their guy? He is everywhere 24/7, with the fake opposition (to tap into the widespread disillusionment with the establishment) craftily doing its job.”

    So, Trump is actually a stooge? And this “fake opposition” are also part of this elaborate ruse. Yet, you offer no specific proof, just mere speculation.

    “But reading that type of stuff makes people like you, “Well, we will show them, those elites.” But I can see why you are all buying it.”

    Right, because YOU know better than everyone else. Are you a soothsayer?

    “Yeah. Joe six packs is going to outsmart the elites. They are a million moves ahead of you, at all times.

  93. It’s remarkable how people don’t understand this. They see a few tepid attacks directed at Trump and imagine this is proof the elite is against him. Meanwhile, the ignore the endless 24/7 coverage being given to him in the mass media. This is the standard Br’er Rabbit gambit: “Oh please, Br’er Fox, don’t allow Trump to win the presidency!” when that is exactly what they want. If they opposed Trump they would marginalize him as a nutcase and then ignore him. Instead they praise him with faint damnation.

    No one can deny that Obama has been their bitch but look at how they attack him in the media as a muslim, socialist or foreign born. All this does is increase his credibility among liberals. “If the right-wing is attacking him, he must be doing something right.” Notice that they never criticize him for what he really is, a warmonger, fascist authoritarian and Zionist lackey.

    The Zionists treat anyone who isn’t 100 percent lockstep obedient to their every whim as a traitor, and you can see the kind of invective they’ve hurled at Obama, despite his being the most obsequious waterboy they’ve ever had in the White House. No less a person than Trump himself has said that “Obama is the worst thing that ever happened to Israel” clearly pandering to Zio-paranoia that their servants are secretly working against them.

    Then again this might not be due to their insanity and arrogance so much as a strategy to distance themselves from the notion of Jewish dominance of our political system (“if Jews controlled the government, Obama wouldn’t be arguing with Netanyahu” when such public disagreements are merely staged to create the illusion of presidential independence). So it is with Trump. Having the Zionuts denouncing him only strengthens his appeal while at the same time creating the illusion that the Zionist have no real power in our system, which is far from the case.

  100. “And funny how racism, nativism and xenophobia is being ruthlessly stamped out in every white, Western nation except Israel.”

    Agree. About 1900, I suppose, the average White guy in America and Europe could go about his vocation and personal business knowing that racial homogeneity was essentially a good thing, ethnic solidarity likewise, and anxiety over foreign-ness normal and legitimate. The last seventy years have seen a politically orchestrated bust-up of those verities. I suspect much of the political torpor and confusion I’ve observed is from people who won’t recognize that “multi-culti”, mass immigration, etc., are the new tools of oppression masquerading as “liberality”. Our elites are striking at the very heart of what makes a people a people, and we often don’t want to believe they’re that evil.

  101. with respect, Niles Bentley, this reflects a dangerous point of view, that Trump is some sort of messiah, couched in Jesusian terms.

    For one thing, I’m not sure Trump’s “message” is all that clear, and “building a wall” as the dominant feature that draws so many followers is not something Jesus would endorse.

    Might Trump also be Sabbati Zevi? or a more recent cult leader — https://m.facebook.com/exposetherabbi/posts/844322269011585?comment_id=844337799010032&comment_tracking=%7B%22tn%22%3A%22R0%22%7D

    Several years ago Franciscan University held regular prayer meetings that were more like (what old-time Catholics would call) holy roller revival meetings; the photo in the link above could have been taken at the student prayer meeting I attended at FUS; it was equal parts scary and ridiculous. In the good ole’ days, Catholics didn’t do those things. The influence of evangelicalism, and of interfaith dialogue, and of forms of neuro-linguistic programming are spreading throughout the Catholic realm.

    It may be the case that Trump is an accomplished practitioner of these skills; a cult leader.

    That “the people are mad,” and that Trump is able to galvanize the anger of a crowd may well be two separate phenomena, and the latter does not really offer a resolution of the former, it merely gives it a forum — not a solution.

    —-

    Increasingly Trump is being compared to Hitler. I don’t think the comparison is apt.* Hitler and NSDAP worked a lot longer and a lot harder than Trump to build the National Socialist party; he had no financial resources of his own; Hitler created a holistic phenomenon incorporating visual stimulus, film, songs that spoke to German needs and wants, and spectacle that channeled German anger from violent expression to a non-violent focus on German pride and culture; the NSDAP offered the German people a pretty clearly formulated plan to resolve their complaints, and the NSDAP carried through on those plans and goals.

    Hitler was a gifted orator and, in partnership with Goebbels had a flair for the dramatic that drew people by means of the entirety of the spectacle; Trump is, so far, a personality cult operating on an organizational shoe-string with little more in terms of branding than a baseball cap.

    *If people are going to sling about the Hitler comparison, they should probably figure out what the hell they are talking about. Look at some of the videos of German rallies: who paid for all those banners? Who financed those tens of thousands of boots, and handsome uniforms? Where did all that money come from?

    Someone on Unz forum linked to an article by a Pastor Chuck Baldwin, http://chuckbaldwinlive.com/Articles/tabid/109/ID/3435/Political-Fascism-And-Religious-Fanaticism-The-Worst-Possible-Marriage.aspx

    Baldwin is a very confused preacher/politician. His political voice attacks the Bush family for having done business with the Nazis in the pre-war years and makes the (ludicrous) claim that the Bush administration was a reincarnation of the Nazi/Third Reich, reasoning that the Bushite neocons want war because war produces profits.
    I call the claim ludicrous, or bass ackward, because NSDAP Germany did not want war, Roosevelt, zionist Jews and wealthy Protestants like Rockefellar and Henry Luce did want war, precisely for the profits (and other reasons). Baldwin would have to overcome his Ludek Pachman Moment (LPM) to acknowledge that the neocons are replicating Roosevelt, not the Third Reich, in their quest to wage war for profit.

    With his preacher’s voice Baldwin argues emphatically that “zionist Israel is not biblical Israel.” The Jewish leaders and to a certain extent the Protestant leaders who influenced Roosevelt to wage war against Germany were motivated precisely by the meme of Israel as biblically ordained. Using religion to achieve political/financial/power goals is as old as Croesus: Herodotus records that after the Persian king Cyrus had conquered Lydia and reversed his decision to kill Lydia’s deposed king, Croesus, the two kings had this conversation:

    “Croesus asked him, “That great crowd of people, what are they doing so eagerly?”
    Cyrus replied, “They are plundering your city and carrying off your wealth.”
    But Croesus answered, “No, not my wealth, for it is no longer mine, but it is your wealth they are carrying off.”
    Cyrus . . .then asked Croesus what he thought about what he, Cyrus, was doing.
    Croesus said, “. . .I think it is my duty . . .to give you advice. The Persians are proud people by nature, and they are also poor. If you allow them to seize great wealth, and keep it, this is what you must expect will happen: The one who has got the most money will rebel against you. Now do this: Take men from your guard and put them on duty at every gate, and have them take away the spoils from the people who are carrying them out of the city, and have them tell the people that they must pay tribute to Zeus. In this way you will not be hated when you take away their loot, and they will admit that you are acting justly.” ”

  103. their Eternal War© in the Middle East

    People do what they think is best

    if you’re trying to equate the genocidal Holocaust of the 21st century that the UZA is perpetrating on some Muslim countries in the Middle East (and Ukraine) with their litany of atrocities and war crimes and assorted state sponsored terrorism on those people, mass-murdering them and destroying their countries wholesale and causing an unprecedented refugee crises that they’re cynically using to destroy even more people’s way of life- then I don’t think you appreciate the magnitude of what these Jewish supremacists and their financial remoras are actually trying to accomplish. Which is a restructuring the global powers in such a way that puts them firmly on top for perpetuity. They’re looking for a fait accompli with their rivals being reduced to the stone age for generations, while at the same time demographically altering for all time the nations they’ve always resented and wanted crushed under their financial/military NWO.

    That’s hardly akin to Nixon opening up diplomatic relations with China

    the evil being perpetrated in the Middle East is not just going to be forgotten and go away. Rather it’s going to cascade down the generations. Islam has a long memory, and these modern day crusades will not soon be forgotten. With every drone they’re dropping, we’re picking up a little bit more of the Karma that is loosely related to that old saying, ‘what goes around, comes around’.

    But even if it weren’t for any future retribution, I still don’t think we should be bankrupting our children’s future so that some neocons and assorted Jewish supremacists can play at being potent and ‘project their power’. We shouldn’t be slaughtering these people because doing so is wrong and has caused and is causing unimaginable suffering. I don’t care what your religion is, doing such things are wrong. Period. Even if there is no God in the universe watching over us all, keeping score. Butchering children and droning goat herders and dropping white phosphorous on schools is anathema to all known standards of decency. Terrorizing weaker countries, just because you can, is not the act of a strong and moral people, but rather the actions of a cowardly, sniveling people, ruled by pigs.

    How much power could little Billy Kristol project if the rest of us just said ‘no’. ‘No little Billy, if you want to go kill the mullahs, go ahead, but we’re not playing along – Sorry Sheldon’.

    That’s what this is about. Telling them to project their own “power”

What I was doing was telling them all that if they want to go fight the mujahedeen (or ‘mullahs’ or ‘Islamofascists’ or “terrorists”, or whatever the Emanuel Goldstein pejorative du jour is), to go ahead.

    fellows like this

    advocating a false flag attack on Iran to start a wider war, where the US crushes yet another of Israel’s rivals in the region.

    if this guy were to show up in Iran, how many mullahs (or anyone else) is going to be afraid of him? Maybe mothers would keep a better watch on their toddlers, but I don’t think too many others would be too concerned.

    PS again: Clawson has long been a joke in the foreign policy crowd in DC. He’s isolated & marginalized. It’s kinda tragic what happens to bright young scholars when the Izzies grab them up and suborn their talents.

  115. Some polls put the number of Republicans who believe Obama is a Muslim at 43 percent, with 15 percent of Dems and 29 percent of Independents believing the same. It is easy to find mainstream media source pushing this fiction and the fact so many believe it is testament to its success. Even Trump has insinuated that the reason Obama might not want to show his birth certificate is that “maybe it says he’s a Muslim.”

    http://mediamatters.org/blog/2012/03/21/while-denying-foxs-role-hannity-fuels-obama-mus/186387

    But the point is these attacks are largely meaningless to liberals and only serve to increase Obama’s credibility while shielding him from criticism for his real crimes. Whether he was born in Kenya or a manger in Bethlehem is irrelevant to the treasonous actions he has taken as president, and that is the thing that doesn’t get discussed. Meaningless attacks against a particular political figure are a good way of validating him in the minds of his followers who see the attacks as confirmation he is fighting the very people who he may in fact be serving.

  119. But as the New Left pulled the Democratic Party much further in the direction of anti-anti-Communism, the “neo-cons” remained anti-Coms and began to drift to the Republicans.

    I think you’re overestimating the influence of the anti-anti-Communists in the Democratic Party. The McGovern nomination was something of a fluke. The mainstream of the Democratic Party in the 1970s remained pretty much in the Henry Jackson Cold War liberal mold: supporter of activist federal government in social affairs, fiscal flexibility, strong environmentalist, and about as anti-Communist as detente would allow. There was really very little distinguishing them from the mainstream of Nixon/Ford Republicans. The neocons fell away from that towards embracing a low taxes at all costs and markets uber alles ideology in domestic affairs. That debate was highlighted by the stagflation of the 1970s.

    Somewhat counterintuitively, Jimmy Carter embarked upon a neocon path underneath all of his liberal sounding rhetoric. He was a rigid fiscal conservative and a deregulator. His rhetoric about human rights abroad masked a foreign policy that was increasingly interventionist against the Soviet sphere of influence, culminating in the effort to destabilize Afghanistan.

  120. My guess is the elites, having an instant read on the pulse of the population thanks to global 24/7 electronic surveillance, understood they needed a conduit for people to let out some steam; hence the Trump card.

    That would not be the first time they used such tactic. The most recent example would be Alexis Tsipras, the current Prime Minister of Greece. Obama would be another one. Nelson Mandela of South Africa comes to mind as well. It seems to me that the game plan is to raise the hopes only to smash them later and gradually remove any hope from the populace. Anybody remember the massive anti war demonstrations before Iraq war? Tens of millions of people demonstrating worldwide, having false hope of being able to prevent the war, hope encouraged by MSM, only to see the war go ahead and their sense of empowerment smashed to pieces. Is it a coincidence that we have not seen any major antiwar demonstrations since? I must agree that the elites, whether we like it or not are, are many moves ahead. They have other advantages as well. Lack of scruples, lack of compassion, absence of compunction and many other positive human qualities. They have the resources, the time and the means. They also have a plan, stick to it and stick together.

  122. Couple of quotes from Wikipedia.

    An international campaign lobbied for his release, which was granted in 1990 amid escalating civil strife.

    Mandela’s efforts at reconciliation assuaged the fears of whites, but also drew criticism from more militant blacks. Among the latter was his estranged wife, Winnie, who accused the ANC of being more interested in appeasing the white community than in helping the black majority

    Without the release of Mandela the situation would have gotten totally out of control.

  125. What is the purpose of saying what you are saying? For the record, I don’t believe what you say is true. But what do you intend to mean?

    If things are as you say – that the forces arrayed against you are all-powerful – then why do you even have an opinion about them? They are – to all intents and purposes – God. They are omnipotent, omnicient, infallible, and all-mighty. You should bow down before them and pray for your salvation.

    I have often wondered – and more recently am more seriously entertaining the possibility – that the many “false-flag” narratives that have become so common on the internet are……………..false flags. That so-called “false-flags” – not the things themselves but the rumor of the things – are planted by the very same people that people who believe in them suspect of having carried them out, in order to neutralize any meaningful political action against the hostile elite that rules over us. It is a Keyser Soze like ruse to make them seem invincible and thereby undermine any opposition to thier agenda.

    Take Alex Jones, for example. He routinely promotes just about every false-flag story there is. Those stories are probably about half of his content. But what does he recommend you do as a result? Start a new political party? Take action? Take to the streets? No. Just drop out, dig a bunker, go underground, and buy the survival supplies he advertises on his website (which he gets paid for, by the way). Knuckle under to the New World Order, which good old Alex assures you is completely unassailable. What he offers is a council of surrender masquerading as an exhortation to resistance.

    No, because it probably isn’t true. Trump is a rather old-fashioned kind of billionaire. He’s a master of golf-courses kind of guy – not a Master of the Universe. I would bet that Trump has never even read an Ayn Rand novel and has no desire to.

    I don’t see him hobnobbing with people like Eric Schmidt, Larry Page, and Elon Musk. And I don’t imaginet those guys would want to hobnob with him. They would probably view hanging out with Trump as being sorta like being dragged to thier father’s rotary club luncheon.

  128. and “building a wall” as the dominant feature that draws so many followers is not something Jesus would endorse.

    That is not true. For starters, the Bible has verses such as the following:

    “From these the coastland peoples spread. These are the sons of Japheth in their lands, each with his own language, by their families, in their nations.” (Genesis 10:5).

    “These are the families of the sons of Noah, according to their genealogies, in their nations; and from these the nations spread abroad on the earth after the flood.” (Genesis 10:32).

    “And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after him and find him. Yet he is not far from each one of us,” (Acts 17:26-27).

    Clearly it is God’s design and wish that there be nations and nations by their nature must be sovereign and sovereignty obviously includes having borders and being able to defend those borders and keeping out other peoples who might harm the nation.

    Also, the Bible has numerous verses stating that there should be justice in the land. But how can there be justice when illegal aliens break our laws and then are rewarded for it by receiving free benefits? How can there be justice when law-breaking companies fire their American workers in order to hire illegal aliens so that they can enrich themselves while passing on all of the costs of illegal immigration to American taxpayers? How can there be justice when Americans are raped or murdered by people who aren’t even supposed to be in the country in the first place?

    Furthermore, the Bible is clear that people are to obey the laws of government unless those laws violate God’s commands and laws regarding immigration do not violate God’s commands and so immigration laws are to be obeyed by everyone.

    The idea that illegal immigration and open borders are somehow the “moral high ground” simply isn’t true. It is the duty and responsibility of government to look out for the best interests of the people and that includes defending the borders and having immigration laws that benefit and not harm the people of the country.

  135. @Ron Unz

    I hope our host and publisher Ron sees this because I am postponing my dry analysis of neocon activity as close to the paid for and bought stances of the average Congressman playing the same tune as the sources of money dictate. I am postponing in favour of taking up Ron’s very interesting point made in one of the “Other Essays” in the splendidly produced hardback that has just arrived and of which I am about to order several more copies. (That’s despite some deplorable typos/failures of proof reading. Naturally I turned first to the one paper in the Theoretical Physics section “Unorthodox Curvature Interactions, Black Holes and Inflation” to see how avant garde the 23 year old Ron Unz may have been after chatting with Stephen Hawking. I did my best but all I could manage was to note a couple of careless errors, to wit, on p. 634 “a black would provide a quick and easy means” which seemed to have escaped from an earlier section of
    Ron’s essay collection, but which, I inferred, had lost the word “hole” after the word “black”. And from p.659 to p.635 the Unorthodox Curvature is given the header “The Surplus of the Athenian Phoros”. It’s OK: I outsourced my pedantry to the Bangalore Nitpickers and they said it was such an honour to be recorded as finding Ron Unz in error that they would wavethe $5 charge).

    And so, in the best Unz delayed gratification for readers mode I come to the reference to neocon Richard Perle’s part in the great Bush bust in Iraq.

    At pp.553-4 “If You Can’t Trust Chalabi-the-Thief, Who Can You Trust” he makes it clear that he strongly suspects the Iraq war was the product of Iranian manipulation effected through influential neocons like Richard Perle who was rewarded with deposits in his Swiss bsnk accounts. (As some kind of collateral evidence I proffer the complaint of a BBC producer well known to me who said that Perle demanded extortionate fees to appear on BBC TV back in 2003).

    So where is Israel in all this? Where is AIPAC? Aha! Anyone who has gone to fortune teller’s school knows that Israel was playing a long game. As a Jewish newspaper editor I knew quite well pointed out to me in 2003 when I raised the subject of the neocons that Rumsfeld and Cheney aren’t Jewish. So, is the Israel-centred answer the understanding at AIPAC that Rumsfeld and Cheney (and their titular boss) had to be allowed their war where they wanted it, that destroying Iraq was a good thing anyway, and that Syria and the Hezbollah could wait. (Iran’s nuclear ambitions? Sorry we forgot to make sure Congress and MSM know it is very important and will have its day in the sun in due course. We’ll beat that up later relying on a Congressman’s two yeat memory).

    But now let Ron tell us definitively whether the Israeli interest in Balkanising the ME was really behind the part played by Perle and co.

  136. I know that a Ron Unz tease can be (though sarcastic irony is more usual) a very straightfaced statement of absurdities. But I don’t construe the LewRockwell.com piece that way.

  137. My litmus test for Obama, among others, was to close Gitmo. Now you’ve given me a good reason to reconsider that closure.
