The election was set up to be stolen from Trump. That was the purpose of the polls rigged by overweighting Hillary supporters in the samples. After weeks of hearing poll results that Hillary was in the lead, the public would discount a theft claim. Electronic voting makes elections easy to steal, and I have posted explanations by election fraud experts of how it is done.

Clearly the Oligarchy does not want Donald Trump in the White House as they are unsure that they could control him, and Hillary is their agent.

With the reopening of the FBI investigation of Hillary and related scandals exploding all around her, election theft is not only more risky but also less likely to serve the Oligarchy’s own interests.

Image as well as money is part of Oligarchic power. The image of America takes a big hit if the American people elect a president who is currently under felony investigation.

Moreover, a President Hillary would be under investigation for years. With so much spotlight on her, she would not be able to serve the Oligarchy’s interests. She would be worthless to them, and, indeed, investigations that unearthed various connections between Hillary and oligarchs could damage the oligarchs.

In other words, for the Oligarchy Hillary has moved from an asset to a liability.

A Hillary presidency could put our country into chaos. I doubt the oligarchs are sufficiently stupid to think that once she is sworn in, Hillary can fire FBI Director Comey and shut down the investigation. The last president that tried that was Richard Nixon, and look where that got him.

Moreover, the Republicans in the House and Senate would not stand for it. House Committee on oversight and Government Reform chairman Jason Chaffetz has already declared Hillary to be “a target-rich environment. Even before we get to day one, we’ve got two years worth of material already lined up.” House Speaker Paul Ryan said investigation will follow the evidence.

If you were an oligarch, would you want your agent under this kind of scrutiny? If you were Hillary, would you want to be under this kind of pressure?

What happens if the FBI recommends the indictment of the president? Even insouciant Americans would see the cover-up if the attorney general refused to prosecute the case. Americans would lose all confidence in the government. Chaos would rule. Chaos can be revolutionary, and that is not good for oligarchs.

Moreover, if reports can be believed, salacious scandals appear to be waiting their time on stage. For example, last May Fox News reported:

“Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” — even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com.

ORDER IT NOW

“Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on manifests by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana.” The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.”

Fox News reports that Epstein served time in prison for “solicitation and procurement of minors for prostitution. He allegedly had a team of traffickers who procured girls as young as 12 to service his friends on ‘Orgy Island,’ an estate on Epstein’s 72-acre island, called Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.” http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/05/13/flight-logs-show-bill-clinton-flew-on-sex-offenders-jet-much-more-than-previously-known.html
Some Internet sites, the credibility of which is unknown to me, have linked Hillary to these flights.http://truepundit.com/breaking-bombshell-nypd-blows-whistle-on-new-hillary-emails-money-laundering-sex-crimes-with-children-child-exploitation-pay-to-play-perjury/

This kind of behavior seems reckless even for Bill and Hillary, who are accustomed to getting away with everything. Nevertheless, if you are an oligarch already worried about the reopened Hillary email case and additional FBI investigations, such as the one into the Clinton Foundation, and concerned about what else might emerge from the 650,000 emails on former US Rep. Weiner’s computer and the NYPD pedophile investigation, putting Hillary in the Oval Office doesn’t look like a good decision.

At this point, I would think that the Oligarchy would prefer to steal the election for Trump, instead of from him, rather than allow insouciant Americans to destroy America’s reputation by choosing a person under felony investigations for president of the United States.

Being the “exceptional nation” takes on new meaning when there is a criminal at the helm.

    If Trump wins, he needs to clean house in the media and academia. Make sure this kind of leftist bias never happens again so right wing candidates have a better chance in the future.

  2. It would appear that the Oligarchy has abandoned Clinton. How long has Wikileaks been sitting on the Podesta files? Is the FBI Wikileaks source?

    An alternative would be to make Killary withdraw in favour of Kaine.
    As a foreigner, I leave to others whether that choice entails too many complications.
    More than anyone else, the Oligarchy can rely on the saying: where there’s a will, there’s a way.

    Turning to Trump as a preferred choice:

    Here are other thoughts along the line of your own thinking:

    …… “Strategically, they [the Democrats] are better off with Donald Trump.”

    “The best way to destroy Trump is to let him win.”

    “If they let him win and cause him to “own recession, a stock market crash, … and cause him to lose Congress, … they can take out Trump, they can take out us, they can do everything they want.”

    “And they know it.”

    I think PCR is forgetting that the oligarchy owns America, whole kit and kaboodle. Perhaps Trump might be a bit less easily-controlled, but with a little financial pressure here and there, that is easily circumvented.

    I rather suspect the oligarchy insisted on the selection of Kaine in the first place. There are few, if any, more scurrilous politicians than Kaine, who is a Hillary X 10. Corrupt and utterly compliant to the demands of the oligarchy, Kaine is, I believe, destined for the Presidency. The FBI investigation will proceed, and Hillary will be forced to resign within a few months of taking office. Then it is truly "look out below". You will not believe how quickly Kaine will complete America's destruction.

    By the way, Hillary is a person who avoids to acknowledge the existence of her own niece:

    Not true. The last president who tried it was Bill CLINTON in July 1993. He fired FBI head Sessions, suddenly and without explanation. He got away with it easily. Nobody even asked any questions.

    Nixon didn’t get away with ANYTHING because he was Nixon. Even though he served the Left almost perfectly, he was PERSONALLY hated by the Left. He was doomed.

    Bill got away with it because he’s a Clinton. Everyone knows what happens when you question a Clinton.

  6. anonymous says: • Disclaimer

    Much has been invested in Clinton and one would think they’d want to salvage something out of their investment. Kaine appears to be a perfectly pliable and out-for-hire tool so the idea may be to drag Clinton across the finish line just to capture the presidency. After that if she were to leave then that leaves Kaine in. Trump is too unpredictable and too much-for them-is at stake. Democratic insiders knew FDR was a dying man who couldn’t last long yet they ran him again. That’s why they maneuvered Truman into the vice-presidential slot.

  9. Trump seems to have won at this point, establishing what no one in the media will tell you tomorrow, to wit, that, as the estimable Paul Craig Roberts has been saying, with acute analysis of all the figures true and false, that there has been no economic recovery in the US since the collapse of August 2008 under Bush and through the eight years of Obama.

    How it will go with Trump is an open question but it cannot be worse than Bush, Clinton, and Obama.

    Advice–get rid of Pence as VP as quickly as possible. He was incompetent as governor, he showed that he was completely willing to jump ship on this campaign when things looked dark. He is too dangerous to have around. Appoint him so some high-sounding office in the Alaskan Tundra, with great thanks, and find another VP pronto. He is at least as slippery as Obama and Clinton combined.

    Oh, but you are so wrong. The oligarchy has the power to inflict punishment, and it will. You can count on things getting worse -- obviously, the oligarchs have no loyalty to the USA, or any national entity. Never have, never will. This is about money and power for those with money and power. Where does wealth come from? The productive class. Who will pay the freight for wealth and power provided to the oligarchy? The productive class.

  10. It also now clear no matter how given to falsehood and fantasy, it is not possible to produce an economic recovery by the mediatic version of virtual reality, nor be so biased and partisan in news, polls, and analysis that a presidential candidate from the inferno, and her little pseudo-Socialist decoy and familiar Sanders, will be elected by masses of citizens whose economic straits are increasingly desperate.

    Trump attacked the younger Bush on Iraq especially, which no mainstream Democrat dared to do.

    Trump brilliantly played the Clinton card in the Rust Belt–”It’s the economy, stupid!”

    None of the “experts”, including most economists, paid any attention.

    A morning after question for Mr. Roberts to get on immediately: who sold the World Markets short and beginning when? Did Goldman Sachs, specificially, go short and pocket a few hundred billion or trillion or whatever or have they lost their near sublime Finance Capitalist perversity?
