The Powers That Be

Fred is always interesting. 

The silliness over Russia is, obviously, part of the Establishment’s drive to get rid of Trump. Yes, the man is erratic, contradictory, shoots before he aims, backs off much of what he has promised, and may be unqualified as President–but that is not why Washington and New York want to get rid of him. It is about money and power, as is everything in the United States. Wall Street, the Pentagon, the Neocons, and the Empire run America. Trump has threatened their rice bowls.

There is an important distinction here. America is not looking for an Empire, hegemony or anything else like that, but the elites who run America do want these things, it is literally their "bread and butter." I know that some of those who read this blog think I am pro-Trump. This would be wrong. I tend to agree with what I think is his foreign policy, but I am fearful of what I think his domestic policy is—increased spending and tax cuts. With deficits as far as the eye can see, this is not wise. But I am not actually sure what his policies are. Time will tell. 

If you find Fred as interesting as I do, read the whole article, it is not long.
