If Donald is scoring big even with evangelicals in middle America, then I guess we can start calling him President Trump.
Empire very much likes Trump, the lucrative businessman. It would appear to be the case that he would best serve Empire's new global strategy: Don’t kill it, mint it.
Zionism, and the prevalence of pro-Israel political activism in the West (especially neoconservatism), have opened the door to a historical era of ubiquitous ethnic and religious wars — multiple clashes of cultures and civilizations worldwide — and enabled and empowered the rise of Donald Trump and right-wing ethnic nationalist movements in Europe.
Some of the key players and cultural blocs in this brave new world free-for-all of every group against every other group:
18. Roman Catholics
And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Every group will be looking out for its own interests. Zionism has legitimized this state of mind — even in nations that have been leaders and bastions of Enlightenment universalism.
Think of it: "the light unto the nations" — the supposed nation of nations, the priesthood of the world — worships at the altar of messianic and maximally self-interested ethno-religious nationalism — identity politics on steroids.
The supreme irony — *liberal* Zionists, more than other group in contemporary politics — have contributed to the collapse of liberalism in the West. Liberal Zionists are dissolving into gibbering incoherence right before our eyes.

MPFB/Recent news of note #53 (February 24, 2016)
The lead political indicators are easy to spot.
Great comment, Sean. Some of us have for decades been sounding the alarm thus about zionism and its insidious, anarchic influence on the global vibe – only to be ignored, laughed at, or slandered literally, for decades.
This is what most alarms me: during the 1990s and 2000s I could see that we were heading towards a plunge over Niagara Falls under relentless pressure from the neocons and neolibs. Now it feels like we have gone over the falls and that there is no turning back. I lack the confidence now to believe that this problem can be fixed — the conflagration has been ignited and is burning out of control.
“We won the evangelicals. We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated.” – Donald Trump/Nevada victory speech.
All politicians lurrrrrv the "poorly educated" – without their support no victory is possible.
Who knows what The Donald’s real thoughts or personal positions are? … its anyone’s guess.
He’s either a political idiot or a political genius—I don’t think he’s an idiot.
I think there’s method to his seeming madness.
He is hitting all the hot spots of the public—jobs, immigration, anti establishment, not being owned by donors—and if he flubs one and it doesn’t fly he ‘revises it’ (as opposed to reversing it) and gets even more kudos.
Some examples—-while the 2 Dems are pandering to (illegal) Hispanics on immigration –and the other Repubs pandering against the illegals—the Donald is hitting the Hispanic communities *who can actually vote* on what they actually care about—> JOBS.
Hillary waxes on about feminism.
Bernie waxes on about inequality and socialism.
Cruz plays the religious card.
Rubio straddles all the fences and mouths all the old establishment spins.
And while they are doing this Donald keeps on hitting on reviving US manufacturing and trade rules for jobs.
The social stuff he wades in and out of , Muslims, terrorism, Christians and so forth gets discarded in people minds because jobs and standard of living is what the majority is most concerned about. He throws sops to the anti immigration crowd, sops to the terrorist crowd, sops to the Christian crowd—and only sops because they are in reality the minority of voters.
Even when the Donald brags about his insider status as a business man and tells how he donated to both parties and played politics he is forgiven because he is now hanging out all the dirty laundry that goes on in order to get anywhere business wise—-iow he’s telling them YEA !, this dirty shit really goes on –you do have to pay to play. but then he folows that up by telling them ‘he’s not gonna be owned’ by the pay to play crowd.
People are going to vote their anger at the establishment and their pocketbooks and jobs in this election.
So whatever he really is he has tapped into the mother lode of the majority anger and concerns.
I think his bombast is part natural but also calculated to come across as a ‘non politician’ and a regular main street non pc guy. His biggest draw is he is not ‘like the other guys’ in the race.
I think the most interesting question if he was elected —is would the Donald’s huge ego work for or against Americans when he has to deal with all the special interest trying to push him around.
Unless Donald is a Trojan horse put up by the US corporate media then its clear he not afraid of the press.
Great observations, American. It would seem to be the case that anti-establishment job-seekers will decide the next election. Polling institutions and Think-Tank establishments should really start adding this category into their election configurations. Appealing to ‘anti-establishment job-seekers’ is certainly the zeitgeist of this election and evidently, a successful and popular political sell, with a vast cross-over reach.
My take on Trump:
-smart as a whip
-capable of sophisticated calculation, misdirection, deception, strategic planning, etc.
-extraordinary leadership abilities
-first-rate intuitive talents
-comes across as intensely authentic (Hillary Clinton comes across as intensely inauthentic)
-I wouldn't be surprised if he wins the election (not to mention the nomination), but who knows what will happen
Most Americans detest the current political establishment — both major political parties, the US Congress and the mainstream media — and they are using Trump to direct their rage at this establishment.
The neocons are terrified of Trump — which I see as a positive sign. He has utterly confounded all the cookie-cutter and mediocre mainstream media pundits, which is delightful.
I wouldn't describe myself as a Trump supporter, and I disagree with many of his stated policy positions, but he is a guy to watch. Underestimate him at your peril.
One concern: The Powers That Be (especially the neocons and neolibs) may be so alarmed by Trump that they may resort to dirty methods (including black ops) to derail his candidacy. There is a disturbing history here that most of us know about.
If you are sick and tired of failed neocon foreign wars, Trump would definitely be your candidate over Hillary Clinton — who is a shrieking and bloodthirsty neocon hawk pretending to be a progressive feminist.
The extraordinary thing is that Trump is bringing fire and brimstone evangelicals and the anti war brigade into the same tent.
"The extraordinary thing is that Trump is bringing fire and brimstone evangelicals and the anti war brigade into the same tent."
This strikes me as pure genius — and it has severely rattled the neocons.
This election is an easy read: it looks like President Trump, hands down. It will be interesting whom he will be picking for Vice president – and especially for Secretary of State. Might he bypass all the neocon consultants who got us into war? Might the Donald Team be empty of the Kristols and Roves?
And regarding aipac and putting American interests first – I think if aipac tried to kick Donald in the gonads like they did with Obama, he may just put on some jackboots himself and kick them back harder – something the fay and squeamish Obama never had the guts or the stomach for.
[Washington Post] The Daily 202: Trump’s romp in Nevada shows why conventional wisdom about his ceiling may be wrong
But, lurking in the background: JFK, JFK Jr., MLK, Rabin, RFK, Sharon, Wallace.
Otherwise, thanks for connecting us with a great link.
Rabin was taken off the board by assassination (possibly false flag assassination). Sharon *may have* been taken off the board by attempted assassination (induced stroke) — there has been speculation on that matter.
Jewish religious Zionists prayed fervently that God would punish and take down Rabin and Sharon before their mishaps. Pat Robertson claimed that Sharon suffered divine retribution for seeking to divide the Land of Israel.
Any politician, American or Israeli, who pushed effectively for the standard two-state solution would probably suffer a similar fate.
(Ehud Olmert, another Israeli prime minister, like Rabin, on the "left," and someone who offended Greater Israelists and warned about the dangers of Israeli apartheid, is now sitting in prison.)
If JFK Jr. hadn't been killed in a plane crash, he probably would have ended up in the White House — and he was an energetic investigator into the assassinations of his father and of Rabin.
Donald Trump has stepped on many extremely powerful toes — he has even gone so far as to challenge the 9/11 official story. It feels like he is in a danger zone.
The neocons hate Trump because they can't control him — anyone that they can't completely and absolutely control, they distrust and fear — it doesn't matter how many flattering words Trump says about Israel. He's a wild card and he has made distinctly anti-neocon noises.
Rabin and Sharon are mass murderers – they don’t belong on the list at all.
The point that strikes me is that even *Rabin, Sharon and Olmert* (three Israeli prime ministers) came to be viewed as self-hating Jews and "enemies of the Jews" by many Zionists. Rabin was gunned down, Sharon was struck down by an "act of God" (a "miracle") and Olmert currently is incarcerated.
(I am not trying to defend all the policies and actions of Rabin, Sharon and Olmert.)

Re: “One concern: The Powers That Be (especially the neocons and neolibs) may be so alarmed by Trump that they may resort to dirty methods (including black ops) to derail his candidacy. There is a disturbing history here that most of us know about.”..Sean
Read this…very interesting.
Mega-donors shy away from fight with Trump
Fearful of counterattacks, rich conservatives and their allies are mostly holding their fire
Two things—-look at the Republican establishment ,status quo and WS interest groups who are against Trump.
If it comes to Trump vr Hillary its enough to make me vote for him.
The other thing is Donald no doubt knows where all the bodies are buried by all the elite ….Repubs and Dems alike. He can hit them back on their own dirt.
He did that with Bush when Bush called him on the eminent domain issue—-by pointing out that the Bushes paid peanuts for the Texas football stadium that was seized by eminent domain, and then sold to them. .I remember that scandal well.
If the Saudis hate Trump, weeeeell…
I wonder how Trump and Putin would get along.
Obama’s response is to ‘pout’ and bad mouth Putin when he foils Us plans.
I haven’t heard what Trump has to say about Russia—-anyone heard anything?
Heretofore I have claimed Putin is the smartest fox of them all.
Would be a interesting match up—the Donald vr the calculating dead eye Putin.
Don and Vlad like each other.
Trump and Putin would probably get along quite well, and Trump would probably move the US into a more cooperative relationship with Russia — which makes sense, since they share a common enemy — ISIS.
Actually, the US shares more common values with Russia than with Turkey and Saudi Arabia. From the standpoint of American and European interests, Turkey and Saudi Arabia have become a major problem.
Of course, the prospect of warmer relations between the US and Russia drives the neocons crazy — and that is one of several reasons why they have their knives out for him.
Another thing, all the polls I have seen put the publics concern about terrorism dead last in the issues at 7% of the public.
So you would think the neocons and Hillary would get a clue about their war mongering and terrorism bs.
I also read in the Forward that the Jewish Capos and money men have been ordered to stand down and not be a visible as they were in the previous elections.
I don’t know why that is exactly –maybe because we have the first Jew in Sanders in the presidential race and they don’t want the ‘jewish question’ to be focused on.
Maybe Israel will surface when the two party’s nominees debates start.
So far though Hillary is a jewish zio lobby all on her own, so are Cruz and Rubio, Cruz even more than Rubio.
Bernie and Donald are keeping the Isr issue on the down low.
If we end up with Hillary and Trump Hillary will be all over the Donald on Isr and mid east wars to protect Isr. I really do not think that will fly though with most voters—they are sick to death of the ME intrigue and wars.
