The ‘real situation’ in America

It is starting to look more and more bizarre in the White House.

Another comment in general terms on the Establishment:

Perhaps this will explain why Aquirre was put into the Whitehouse. It is a quote from syndicated columnist Edith Kermit Roosevelt, granddaughter of Teddy Roosevelt:

“The word “Establishment” is a general term for the power elite in international finance, business, the professions and government, largely from the northeast, who wield most of the power regardless of who is in the White House. Most people are unaware of the existence of this “legitimate Mafia.”

Yet the power of the Establishment makes itself felt from the professor who seeks a foundation grant, to the candidate for a cabinet post or State Department job. It affects the nation’s policies in almost every area.

Roosevelt added that this group’s goal is “a One World Socialist state governed by ‘experts’ like themselves.”

The ‘real situation’ in France

This is an interview with a young Frenchman, Francois Brun, living in the west of Paris, both of us using English.

I opened by asking about the poll which has put Macron on 64% and Le Pen on 36%.

François Brun: Huge propaganda for Macron. The French are idiots. But Marine can win second round.

Me: Really?

FB: In fact many people don’t want him as president because he is Hollande’s son. Marine’s campaign is better now. The media are corrupt, I have never seen this in my life. It is EXTREME propaganda as much as Hillary/Trump. But people are rejecting massively the establishment.

Me: But can she win?

FB: Yes she can. I am talking seriously. Her result was not good because many FN supporters voted for Fillon (they wanted to avoid Macron). And also 75% of people who voted Fillon will vote Marine.

Me: What is Marion like?… More here ...

Something wicked this way comes

What probably focussed the mind on this was that later today I have to go to a funeral, something difficult at the best of times. There are other things to avoid also, such as missing two appointments the NHS wanted me to go to, to have ‘scans’ – absolutely no intention of having any of those.

So it’s in that sort of mood that this post is written. Sometimes it takes a catalyst and the catalyst in this case was reader Wolfie who last night commented:

Nothing to do with Brexit, something wicked this way comes.

That’s a comment by someone once in the financial field.

We may have been thinking along different lines but I recall reading something about the whole Brexit smokescreen covering the real story – the impending crash. And even that is to miss the point – it’s the deliberately induced crash we’re speaking of here.… More here ...
