Trump vs. Hillary and the Global Elite

For years, the two-party system has been failing the American electorate.  On one side, we have the Democratic Party who’s packaged itself as the party of the people.  They claim to be for higher taxes on rich people and greater benefits and services for everyone else.  They’ve been the natural home for progressives, socialists, communists, and leftists of every stripe.  They call for greater government powers, more regulation, and bigger budgets.

On the other hand, the Republican Party has positioned itself as being the party of lower taxes, fiscal responsibility, individual rights, and smaller government.  Instead, they have simply become the willing collaborators of the Democrats and are complicit in the growth of the federal bureaucracy and record increases in spending.

The political theater we’ve been witnessing over the last few generations involves politicians from both parties pretending to be at odds with each other but, in fact, they’ve been working in concert – and that’s been the problem.

When Republicans are not in power they rail against the profligate spending of Democrats.  They’ve done such a great job of pretending to be conservative that they keep convincing us to give them control of the Congress – but they never deliver on their promises.  In response to the Democrats’ overreach of forcing Obamacare on the American people, we gave the Republicans control of the House in 2010.  Afterwards, they claimed that they couldn’t really change anything as they were only “one-half of one-third of the federal government.”  So they convinced us to give them control of the Senate in 2014, but no conservative action was forthcoming — only more excuses about how they couldn’t enact a conservative agenda because Obama would block it.  We didn’t elect them for another set of excuses – we expected them to send a series of conservative bills and budgets over to the White House.  If the President vetoed the Republican’s legislation, then he’d be the one seen as an ideologue blocking the people’s representatives.  Instead, we had John Boehner and Paul Ryan offering excuses as to why they continue to give trillions of dollars to Obama for him to squander.

Donald Trump’s candidacy has highlighted just how aligned the two political parties actually are.  The ruling global elite that funds the elections of both parties gets what it wants no matter who’s in power.

For years, the American people have been demanding that the government stop the flood of illegal aliens and secure the border – and all we’ve gotten is lip service from the Republicans.  There’s a reason for that.  Anyone with half a brain understands that the Republicans want the continued flow of cheap labor, and the Democrats want the influx of reliably liberal future voters.  Both parties know that Americans want the border secured and the illegals deported – that’s why they keep talking about “comprehensive immigration reform” and “a pathway to citizenship,” as this is now code for amnesty.

Support for amnesty cost former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor his seat in Congress and destroyed Senator Marco Rubio’s chances of winning the Republican presidential nomination.  Rubio was elected to the Senate by running as an opponent of amnesty – but once in office, he very quickly threw his constituents under the bus and joined the Gang of Eight to legalize the status of millions of illegal aliens.  This is the main reason that he did so poorly in the primaries — voters simply don’t trust him anymore.

Trump’s success in this presidential election season is no accident.  All of the supposedly outrageous positions he’s taken are positions that the people have been waiting decades to hear spoken.

When Trump says that he’ll secure the border and deport the wage-suppressing illegal aliens, it’s literally music to our ears.  Only a lunatic thinks that allowing outsiders to come into our country illegally and demand money, services, and political legitimacy is a good thing.  We’ll decide who’s allowed to come here – and we’ll make those determinations based on what we think is best for our country.

When Trump says that the American people have gotten the shaft with trade deals that moved manufacturing jobs overseas, we’re happy to see that he shares our concerns.  Americans have lost their well-paying manufacturing jobs to slave labor overseas so that manufacturers can make their products for a fraction of the cost — but still enjoy unfettered access to the American market.  This is thanks to the crooked “free-trade” deals that their political puppets have provided for them over the last few decades.  Ross Perot was 100% right when he warned about the repercussions of NAFTA in that 1992 debate.  It, along with other globalist trade deals, sucked the manufacturing jobs right out of this country.

There’s a reason why the politicians of both parties produce the same results – they’re controlled by the exact same ruling elite who manufacture most products and control the lion’s share of global wealth.  Hillary Clinton is the openly paid-off puppet that they’ve chosen to win the White House in order to further their goals.  Donald Trump’s got her number — she is the most corrupt person who’s ever run for the presidency.

The Clinton Foundation received hundreds of millions of dollars in donations from countries who were dealing with Hillary while she was Secretary of State.  What about the millions of dollars in speaking fees that Bill Clinton collected from foreign countries while Hillary ran the State Department?  What about the money Hillary received after she left the State Department?  She started collecting millions of dollars from big business and Wall Street for private speaking engagements.  Between the two of them, the Clintons were paid $139 million from 2007 to 2014.  Hillary was paid $675,000 for three speeches to Goldman Sachs – that’s $225,000 per speech.  In 2013 alone, Hillary Clinton was paid $9,680,000 for 41 speeches – 14 of which were given to Wall Street firms.  As Bernie Sanders says, those must be extraordinarily wonderful speeches!

Is anyone surprised that Bush’s Secretary of the Treasury, Hank Paulson, has endorsed Hillary?  He was the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Goldman Sachs right before he ripped off the American taxpayer in order to bail out his Wall Street buddies.  Of course he’s endorsed her — she’s Wall Street’s bought-and-paid-for puppet.

Voting is the only weapon you have left to stop the global elite and their hand-picked representative, Hillary Clinton.  This might be our last chance to take back control of our republic from Wall Street banks and the ruling class who funneled hundreds of millions of dollars into the Clintons’ pockets while Hillary did their bidding as Secretary of State.

If you want the border secured and the illegal aliens deported, you need to vote for Donald Trump.  If you want protectionist tariffs that will force multinational corporations to manufacture here if they’d like access to the American market, you need to vote for Donald Trump.  If you’d like to suspend migration from countries with prevalent Islamist ideologies and hatred for the West, you need to vote for Donald Trump.

The choice is clear.  You can vote for an openly paid-off tool of the international ruling elite, or you can vote for that loud guy who thinks exactly like you do.
