Presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton
by Dee McLachlan
The Presidential candidates had it out for the second time. Trump got thumped for his 2005 degrading “locker room” comments, and Hillary for her 33,000 deleted and “bleached” emails.
This is a battle between big-mouth Trump vs the “criminal establishment” — and so Trump threatened Hillary, that should he become president, he is going to instruct the FBI to investigate her.
CLINTON – “It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country…”
TRUMP – “Because you’d be in jail.“
The establishment desperately wants to stop Trump — and this has become a dirty campaign.
Now Jeffery Epstein — the billionaire pedophile — is participating to implicate Trump in criminal underage sexual activities via “Jane Doe.”
But it was former President Bill Clinton that was big buddies with Epstein. Clinton took at least 26 trips aboard the registered sex offender’s infamous jet — known as the “Lolita Express” or the “rape plane.” And Mark Epstein, Jeffrey’s brother, testified in 2009 that Trump flew on the jet “at least once.”
It was Bill Clinton that was implicated in rape and activities on Epstein’s US Virgin Islands estate — known as “Sex Slave Island” or “Orgy Island” — allegedly rife with solicited sex, often from minors “groomed” by Epstein himself.
I was writing about morally corrupt powerful people in a Rhodes article only days ago.
It won’t be long before we know who the next president will be. The Guardian believes that the “banging sound you heard were the last nails being hammered into the coffin of the Trump campaign, ” — but with a CNN/YouGov poll 47 to 42 for Clinton, it is not over just yet.
The Conversation Over Who Is best For Australia?
The “serious” and academic online journal The Conversation published this article on the 5th of October: Trump or Clinton: who will be the best for our region?
The article is suggesting that
“…no matter who becomes the next president, it will be bad. If it’s Donald Trump, though, it could be apocalyptic.
“most serious analysts hope she [Clinton] wins. The alternative is too awful, unpredictable and frankly alarming to even contemplate.” [my emphasis]
These statements are made on the basis that Australia’s inextricably relationship with the US is a positive one. But this relationship, which is also a dependent one, led to Australia unquestioningly following the US into the Iraq war. This has directly resulted in the deaths of many Australian soldiers. And these soldiers were not fighting to protect Australian soil, but fighting for the geopolitical agenda of a global elite — the criminal establishment.
To recap: Saddam Hussein and the Iraqi people had NOTHING to do with the destruction of the World Trade Center’s twin towers, or the part free-fall collapse of Building 7 — nor the destruction of the Pentagon.
It is a disgrace that Australia followed the “Shock and Awe” campaign to destroy a country and kill over a million its people on “cooked up” intelligence. But for former prime minister John Howard, it was only an “embarrassment.”
With Hillary, Australia will only be getting more of the same. So I presume Canberra will be willingly obedient and happy to follow Clinton into the next war debacle? And with tensions between the US and Russia deteriorating over Syria, this is not a good thing.
But maybe if Trump wins, Canberra will sit up and think. Canberra might even analyse and consider whether to follow Trump into a conflict — as they weigh up his possible “apocalyptic” decisions.
(Has Canberra forgotten the “apocalyptic” decision to follow George W Bush into Iraq?)
So maybe Trump becoming the US President will be the best thing to happen to Australia. Canberra might actually start thinking and using their “grey matter” for once — instead of blindly following the US establishment’s geopolitical agenda.
US — Australia’s Dangerous Ally
It is just two years since I interviewed former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser in Melbourne. He argued that while strategic dependence may have been beneficial in Australia’s post-colonial history and during the Cold War, it has now become a liability — and a potentially dangerous liability at that.
He discussed how former John PM Howard further entrenched Australia’s dependence on the US to the detriment of regional relations. He said:
“We have significantly diminished our capacity to act as a separate sovereign nation.”
So will Trump be “too awful, unpredictable and frankly alarming to even contemplate”?
The present US political class have for several decades been on a “too awful,” and “frankly alarming” quest of geopolitical destruction.
Retired General Wesley Clark informed us of their plans in 2007 — plans that were told to him a few weeks after the September 11, 2001. And what was this plan that Australia participated in?
The Destruction of SEVEN countries.
GEN. WESLEY CLARK [2001 at the Pentagon]: “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” (Video here)
I worry that Trump wants to build up the US military — but he also wants to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership; renegotiate NAFTA; label China a currency manipulator; create 25 million American jobs and increase wages; reduce America’s trade deficit, and stop the theft of American trade secrets. (Promises, promises.)
But it seems Canberra would far prefer Hillary Clinton. I wonder if they have read some of her private speeches. The Washington Examiner got a hold of some of the private (paid) speeches — and this is Hillary Clinton on being far removed from the struggles of the middle class:
