President Cruz?

I have long said that before presidents are elected, they are selected. The Republican is going to win this year, as the parties take turns, so it won’t be Hillary. On the Republican side, I assumed as if by magic that Jeb Bush would start to surge in the fake polls, but he’s dead in the water.

So I don’t know who on the Republican side will be anointed.

Thierry Meyssan has an interesting take on the matter, a little frightening as the man he says will be annointed is an obvious sociopath … Ted Cruz. But then, “sociopath” might be a job requirement.

Read the article (Ted Cruz PsyOp) and see what you think. (Perhaps you’ll understand the real purpose of Facebook. Apparently the people behind Cruz have profiled 40 million voters thanks to that spook-run program.)

    Anyone who pays any attention to what people around them are saying knows Bernie Sanders is going to be the next president of the US, unless his enemies kill him first. Your first mistake Mark is you are spouting the lines of Fox MSNBC CBS NPR etc and you are doing it on your own without being paid to spout those lines.

    But FOX, MSNBC CBS and you and NPR are wrong. The majority of Americans want a single payer health insurance system and they are ready to fight and struggle to get one. They are fighting with their checks, they are fighting with their votes they are fighting to have a political revolution.

    Some Greens get it and say “Bernie in the primary Jill in the fall” others are clueless and pissed and jealous at the money and crowds Bernie is raising that they never did since the 60s. Some of those will eventually catch up and some won’t.

    If Bernie can do well tomorrow the whole game changes. NV is already shifting toward Bernie even though he’s still trailing. Multiple national polls find Bernie and Hill now statistically tied. Bernie draws the biggest crowds, he has the most donors and the most volunteers.

    That’s amazing. I’ve never seen anything even close to this. It’s the Obama campaign squared and far better grounded in reality. Bernie isn’t messing around. Bernie will invite 2 million activists to occupy DC just like King was going to do when they assassinated him. And when he does you better get up and stand up and join us Mark. Because by then you will have finally grasped that the times are a changin.

    I will relish being able to say I told you so, not so much because I did, but because i welcome the change of paradigm among so many.

    That’s not to say that then everything will be hunky dory. That’ not how it works. That’s just to say that a little political revolution is inherently good for the soul and the spirit of my fellow Americans and myself. And we want and are going to get a single payer system.

    • Well, I hope for your sake that you do get to tell me you told me so. I take no joy in describing American politics as it really is. That would be refreshing.

      However, I think you are mistaken I assuming that public opinion matters or that popular movements are anything more than manipulations from the power centers. Bernie has only gained traction because he is allowed to do so, and power of suggestion is now mushrooming his support. Powerful people want him to succeed. For myself, I can’t figure out whether he is being used to sheepdog, or to take Hillary down. In either case, it is the Republicans’s turn now. They get to hold the office for the next eight years.

      He’s fake. That’s all I can tell you. And you surprise me, having seen throug 911 so easily falling for this? Did you decide that it was uncomfortable outside the mainstream?

      • What power? I am as free as a man can be, my own thoughts, my own life, no boss, no one censoring me … I get this a lot, as if I am the one with the problem, even as I see scams like Obama, Tea Party, Zika, or the Bernie thing so easily. You want to be fooled! It is so comforting to believe, so disheartening to come to grips with manipulation, especially when it is you being manipulated.

        American politics is a lot like the Superbowl, a game that sucks up our attention but which has no real meaning. It is meant to be that way, to keep the pups busy while the big dogs go about their business.

        Who was it said “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled”?

    What is in Bernie’s heart? It is unknowable to us. What others do is unimportant. Dreaming is part of living, and everything, even neoliberal/neocon feudalism, must eventually come to an end. If he’s a “sheepdog,” there is a day after, and life goes on. If he wins New Hampshire, we may be seeing the last of the Clintons, and Bushes too. In my book that has to count for something.

    “Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.

    The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.

    Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.

    Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”

    The power of nightmares.

    “Good guys? Good guys? there are no good guys! There are just a bunch of guys.”

    Just because you decide something and then say it doesn’t make it so.

    Are you suggesting that Bernie has just been pretending to be a hard working well loved public servant for the last 30 years, but actually he’s a horrible monster controlled by higher ups?

    But you aren’t? Did they ask you and you turned them down? Or didn’t they want to control you for a later date? I like Bernie and think he’s just what he appears to be, a regular ol human.

    • Yeah, I think Bernie is a fake, a cardboard placard. If he were saying things you do not like hearing, you’d think differently. The political class lives by the lie. Max Baucus lied in public for thirty years. He was a chameleon, maybe merely less convincing than Bernie?

      I watched Bernie on Colbert last evening. I noticed that he never personally engaged Stephen, but rather stared vacantly forward as he spoke. He was reciting his lines, reading them off the back of his eyeballs. He did the same thing for years on radio, every Friday on the Hartmann show.

      Reminds me … We went into Denver to hear Thom Hartmann speak at a book store a few years ago. Something was not right. He was sullen, stared at his shoes, did not personally engage anyone. He seemed to be privately angry. I wrote it off to his introverted personality, not uncommon in radio. Now I am more inclined to think he is merely another man required to lie for his living, another fake. They are the only ones who are granted public forums in our empire of lies.
