PROBLEMS FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT

Bill and Hillary

Former President Clinton looked bewildered a couple of nights ago, when trying to refute accusations that his wife is part of the “Establishment.”

He asked how can she be when she’s a woman running for an office no woman has ever held.

The former president misses the point.

The Establishment generally denotes a dominant group or elite that holds power or authority in a nation or organization . . .  In fact, any relatively small class or group of people having control can be referred to as The Establishment . . . ”  (Wikipedia:  “The Establishment”)

Based on this definition, the Clintons are a part of the Establishment.  They have spent years promoting their liberal ideals, from abortion and same-sex marriage to big government programs, multiculturalism and political correctness.

I was amused a few days ago when a prominent female supporter of Hillary Clinton enthusiastically talked of her candidacy.  She said that if Mrs. Clinton doesn’t make it, then former Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, will run.   This would mean that Americans would have two billionaires to choose from, Donald Trump and Michael Bloomberg.   What would the rest of the world think of American democracy if two billionaires were running for office?   She did not mention that Mrs. Clinton is a multi-millionaire.  Nor did she express any concern about donations made to Mrs. Clinton that are clearly a conflict of interest.

This is turning out to be the most interesting US presidential election since 1968.   At that time, I was a teenager living in England.   Britain had its own radical government at the time, the second post-war Labour government led by Harold Wilson.

It seemed like everything was changing.   Abortion and homosexuality were both legalized, while the death penalty was abolished.  There were also radical financial decisions taken, including nationalization of some industries (others had already been nationalized).  The left-wing financial decisions were reversed under Margaret Thatcher over a decade later; but the other reforms stayed the same.

Other countries were going through the same radical changes.

Fifty years later, like it or not, the liberal-leftists who have dominated the western world are now the establishment, an establishment that has clearly failed the country.

What we saw in New Hampshire was a political earthquake.  The headlines were dramatic — fittingly so:  “Sanders, Trump Stun America,” CNN declared on its website.  The American Prospect summed it up with a tidy statement:  “The Establishment Sinks.”   The look on Bill Clinton’s face took me back to 1989 when Rumania’s President Nicolai Caucescu first realized the people were rising up against him.   There was shock and horror together with bewilderment – how could the people reject me was written all over his face.

This is not an American phenomenon.  We see the same thing happening in other western countries.   “Extremists” (as far as the media is concerned) of both right and left are challenging the established center.

Meanwhile, the following report appeared on the BBC’s website yesterday, one day after Janet Yellin’s testimony before Congress warning of the worsening international financial environment:

“Analysts said US Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen’s gloomy economic assessment on Wednesday had added to investors’ worries. In testimony to Congress, she said that financial conditions in the US had become “less supportive” of growth and warned of the “increased volatility” in global financial markets.  Rabobank European strategist Emile Cardon said the worst could still lie ahead:  “The bad news in now coming from everywhere – China, Portugal, the US, the commodity sector, the banking sector.  It’s like several smaller crises could combine into one big crisis.”

It’s not just the global economy that’s a worry.

German Foreign Policy reports that we are going to see more wars this year.

BERLIN – In an article published by the leading German foreign policy journal, an influential diplomat predicts that worldwide, there will be a further increase in the number of wars and their victims, this year.  “The number of conflicts, their victims, and their refugees” has been increasing worldwide, for the past five years and this development will “most likely continue this year.”   The
journal, Internationale Politik, substantiates this assumption by presenting an overview of the current wars.  Today’s deadliest wars (are) in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, and South Sudan.

When Jesus Christ was asked by His disciples what would be the sign of His Second Coming, He replied:

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”   (Matt 24:6)

Thursday evening, less than 24 hours ago, an individual attacked customers in a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, with a machete, injuring four, one of whom is critical.   First reports assured people this was not terrorism; then they announced the name of the man responsible, Mohammad Barry.

Meanwhile, the Pope, on a visit to Mexico, will stand with migrants at the US border, symbolically demanding the US let more migrants in.   It’s not just the politicians who don’t get it!

100,000 HAITIANS COMING TO AMERICA

hatians-to-usa

When Senator Edward Kennedy’s immigration bill passed into law almost fifty years ago, he assured Americans that they would not notice any changes in the social fabric of America. At the time, whites constituted almost 90% of the population.

Today, the percentage of whites is down to less than two thirds. If demographic trends continue, Americans with Caucasian ancestry will be a minority by 2034. This year, for the first time, non-whites outnumber whites in school. Former President Bill Clinton warned a predominantly white audience some time ago that this is their future “and you’d better get used to it.”

The Democrats just can’t wait. By executive decree thousands of school children from Guatemala have been granted permission to live in the United States.   And now, 100,000 Haitians are coming to America, again by executive decree.   Keep in mind that the constitution gives Congress the right to decide on naturalization, not the president.

In light of the fact that the melting pot clearly isn’t working with some people, it seems risky to let 100, 000 in from the country that is the greatest failed state in the western hemisphere and where voodoo thrives.   But, putting that aside, one wonders why the Democrats haven’t said something.

They claim to be the party of the working man.   The working people they claim to represent have seen a serious reduction in their standard of living in the last few years. Many are not even working at all. The 5.9% unemployment figure is a farce – that’s the number of people who are actively looking for a job. Many more have given up looking so are no longer counted.

African-Americans are particularly hard hit. And now 100,000 Haitians will join them in the competition for low-paid jobs. In a few years, those children from Guatemala will also be competing for the same jobs.

So, why is President Obama so keen on bringing these people in?

Don’t think it’s humanitarian, because it’s not.

It comes down to two things.

First, the Democrats are looking ahead. By 2020, tens of thousands of the new residents will have citizenship which will enable them to vote – for the Democrats!

And secondly, Senator Kennedy’s 60’s generation and their ideological descendants hate the America they inherited and want to completely destroy it.   African-American writer Shelby Steele wrote about this self-loathing in his book “White Guilt”. Read it – it explains the liberal mindset.

Meanwhile, what we are heading towards is a country more like Brazil or South Africa.   South Africa’s white population lost control of their country twenty years ago. They are now a distinct minority, a minority that has to finance all the social programs successive governments impose upon them.   At the same time, they are faced with a constant struggle to survive rising crime and the breakdown of law and order.

This is America’s future.

Deuteronomy chapter 28 warned the ancient Israelites of the consequences of turning away from God. One of those consequences was that foreigners would rule over them.   When a nation turns away from God, people can’t think straight. Unfortunately, those very people now rule over us and we will have to adapt to the consequences, as President Clinton warned.
