ENDNOTE: The Establishment didn’t pick Trump!



The More the Establishment Freaks Out Over Trump, the More Attractive He Becomes

*** begin quote ***

Trump is attractive precisely because the Establishment fears and loathes him because 1) they didn’t pick him and 2) he might upset the neoconservative Empire that the Establishment elites view as their global entitlement.

The Establishment is freaking out about Donald Trump for one reason: they didn’t pick him.

The Establishment is freaking out because the natural order of things is that we pick the presidential candidates and we run the country to serve ourselves, i.e. the financial-political elites.Donald Trump’s candidacy upsets this neofeudal natural order, and thus he (and everyone who supports him) is anathema to the Establishment, heretics who must be silenced, cowed, marginalized, mocked and ultimately put back in their place as subservient debt-serfs.

*** end quote ***

Trump is  the prettiest horse in the glue factory coral.

And, he dared to suggest peace with Russia and end NATO.

That already is progress.

If he can stop the current Middle East blundering around “drone-ing” everything, then maybe it can settle down/

[JR: While he didn’t finish at Alma Mater, he was a Prepster. And, perhaps, the time at MP & MC was both formative and important to our comrade. And, imho, war interrupts many plans. A good many went to never came back and maybe those that did had new priorities.]

Dear John,

             I would guess that John graduated from the Prep in either 1955 or 1956.

              May He Rest In Peace.


McEneney, Mike (MC1953)

[JR: Thanks, Mike. Much appreciated.]
