100 days from today, we will know if the Establishment prevails and Hillary Clinton is coronated as the 45th President of the United States, as the Establishment and all its minions want…or if Donald Trump yanks the rug from under the Cocktail Party class and upends the apple cart. Globalists want Hillary Clinton to win so that America’s sovereignty can be further erased through open borders and American national identity further watered-down through continued colonization of America by the Third World. What I believe the globalists are doing is flooding Western countries with as many Third Worlders as possible to overwhelm the national identities of Western countries…so that Americans are replaced in their own nation by poor, uneducated, malleable foreigners who don’t have any affinity for (or even knowledge of) American traditions and values. The United States is a country that could never be conquered from the outside by a foreign enemy…so the globalists seem intent on destroying America from within, chiefly by replacing the American people with something else. Something that shouts angrily into microphones in Spanish, as evidenced by the spectacle Democrats put on in Philly for a week.
The globalists have promised to fulfill Hillary Clinton’s lifelong dream and make her president and in return Hillary will do whatever the globalists want. Maybe she believes that whatever comes after America (what I believe Obama called “The New America,” comprised of “New Americans”) will be better than what exists now…but I don’t see how that is possible. The Third Worlders being aggressively imported into this country are poor, they can’t read or write, they have no skills, and can’t do anything but simple manual jobs. We’re a county without factories to work in since those all fled overseas or to Mexico after NAFTA and decades of unions making it impossible for companies to manufacture anything in this country. The Third Worlders flooding here are not skilled in anything: they aren’t stonemasons or sculptors or carpenters or bricklayers needed for a building boom, like we had in another period where large numbers if immigrants were actually needed. In 2016, we have no jobs for the people who continue to flood into the country…but Democrats want their votes, so a permanent, impoverished serf class is being created. To keep these people poor forever, Democrats do everything possible to keep them speaking Spanish — the language of poverty — so that they never assimilate into American culture. Globalists want these colonists to instead build parallel societies within America, to balkanize the country with colonies that continue to expand and never dissolve into the melting pot (that America is supposed to be). This is all a divide and conquer technique, meant to fracture the United States and weaken us. This is all setting the stage for Whatever Comes Next, which is a future the globalists want where the US is no longer a superpower and some other entity takes over and rules the whole world.
This is the kind of future in books like Nineteen Eighty-Four and Brave New World, where everything is like India and there’s a caste system: the powerful elite rule from on high and most people are poor serfs toiling away at the bottom. It’s impossible to ever move upwards and leave the most downtrodden castes. The elite live in unimaginable luxury at the top of the pyramid and the system is rigged to keep everyone else poor and powerless far below. This is the future the globalists want…and flooding the West with Third World colonists is part of a Cloward-Piven effort to collapse the world we know and replace it with their “Utopia.”
Hillary Clinton is clearly a pawn in all this. She’s not smart or competent enough to be engineering any of it. She is along for the ride. Look how the Democrat primaries were rigged for her to win. You saw how Bernie Sanders deceived all of his followers; he was always Hillary’s stooge and he was never intended to win the nomination. She needed a challenger to run against and he agreed to be that stooge. The Establishment decided long ago that Hillary would be the nominee and that she would also win this election. For the first time ever, the Establishment is so confident in itself that it’s no longer pretending that there are two parties anymore: John McCain and Mitt Romney were the stooges from 2008 and 2012; they were the men who ran against the Democrat, but didn’t really try to win because they were not supposed to win. They just were paid handsomely to be stooges, to be someone for Democrats to run against so there would be an “election”…but the Establishment and the globalists determined ahead of time that Obama would win because Obama would advance their agenda. In the last eight years America under Obama has been flooded with a massive stream of Third World colonists. All in keeping with the Globalists’ plan to eradicate America’s national identity, erase its borders, and eliminate its sovereignty.
In 2016, McCain and Romney are supporting Hillary. The entire Republican Cocktail Party elite is supporting Hillary. Stooges in Right Media (the term used for conservative writers) are all supporting Hillary. Look at what Erick Erickson from Red State and Ben Shapiro are doing. They are practically on Democrats’ payroll. All of this seems very coordinated. It feels to me that all of these people have been promised that their very comfortable lives will continue just as they are if Hillary Clinton becomes the 45th President…but that their lives would be upended if Trump would win. Erick Erickson loves to eat thick steaks and drink fine wine. Ben Shapiro loves whatever he loves, maybe gourmet chocolates and expensive collectible toys from Japan (I don’t really know much about him, so he could be really into Marie Osmond dolls for all I know). Hillary Clinton becoming president means that Red State would have guaranteed web traffic for four years…and easy to write articles about how terrible Hillary Clinton is. Ben Shapiro would get another book (or two) and would have scores of material to work from, seeing as how Hillary is such a known entity. Right Media’s business model is hating on Hillary and railing against her…and if your business is war then you never want to see peace. Defeating Hillary and removing her from the national scene means that Erick and Ben and the others would have to find something new to write about…and that’s a scary thought for them. Less web hits means fewer steaks and less wine. No wonder they want Hillary to win. They like the status quo. Trump winning upends the apple cart.
That’s really what this election is about and what the next 100 days should focus on: do people want the globalist trend to continue and for America to continue to be erased and eroded…or will people take a chance on Trump and the opportunity he creates to cause the Establishment to come crashing down?
It almost feels like the hostage mindset of people living under a dictator like Saddam Hussein…where they were used to their lives under his yoke and a world without him seemed scary, since they couldn’t imagine what would come next. Here, in our world, the Establishment has been doing its things and rigging elections and the Cocktail Party elite have been in place as a caste for so long that we’re all just used to them. Thinking about it all crashing to the ground is scary because WHAT COMES NEXT? Trump unending everything means that in January 2017 we’d be living in a whole new world. We would be off script. We’d be in uncharted territory. This would no longer be part of the globalists’ plans.
There would be a lot of hard work to do, because the Establishment that had been running things would be gone. In the wake, many secrets would be revealed and a lot of corruption exposed…and there would be anger and disgust as institutions like the IRS and the FBI get dragged before Congress and forced to reveal everything they’ve been doing to Americans. I believe that Trump would expose all of these people. It really would be like the collapsing of Saddam Hussein’s regime and all the trials that followed.
Anyone who has a comfortable life in politics does not want to see any of this happen, so they are siding with Hillary. That’s why McCain and Romney have been so into the #NeverTrump stuff. That’s why Erick Erickson and Ben Shapiro have been so into it as well. Anyone who’s made a comfortable living off politics does not want the system to be upended because their gravy train ends. It is hard finding a new career in your 30s or 40s and starting over. When you reach a certain point of success, you don’t want the rules to change because you’ve mastered the system and you don’t want to learn new rules. You like things the way that they are and you will fight to preserve what you have. Right Erick? Right Ben?
Trump is the worst nightmare of the Establishment status quo. This election appears to be shaping up as an choice between the status quo and something else. The question that must be answered is if Americans are tired enough of the status quo to roll the dice on something else and if the American people do indeed come to understand that the Establishment is embodied in Hillary (and that the Establishment has really been controlling both parties for years). Trump is a break from the Republican Party and is some new force of nature of his own. Will enough people see this as an opportunity to get rid of the Establishment for those Cocktail Partiers to fall once and for all?
In 100 days we’ll know the answer to that. We are in for the wildest ride of our lives, since the Establishment will not go down without a fight. If we assume that Trump does not just give up and lose interest in winning like McCain and Romney did, then this election will be one for the history and record books.

[Click above to embiggen: some of the creepy skulls that were displayed at the end during the balloon drop at the finale of the Democrats’ convention.]
NOTE: I wrote live recaps of the convention as it was happening each day, all 8 hours of it per day. You’re welcome. All of those are here for you as a historical (if not hysterical) reference, day by day. The Republican convention notes are there too.
Back in the year 2000 (how weird is it that The Year 2000 is now ancient history?), DC Comics ran a series where Lex Luthor ran for President (and won!). He was a Ross Perot businessman who stuck it out and didn’t leave the race, the way that Perot did in 1992…and Luthor defeated Al Gore and George Bush and moved into a kryptonite-decorated Oval Office. Superman was pissed. I thought the whole thing was so absurd and hilarious. At the time.
This morning, I slept in late and rested up, after having covered every night of both parties’ campaigns for the last two weeks. I don’t remember much of the dream I was having, but near the end of it, I realized that Lex Luthor and the Joker were running for president. But, I didn’t feel any need or urge to stop them. It’s not that I didn’t care anymore, so it wasn’t me saying (or dreaming) “F*** it.” It was more like what happens if I’m walking home from the store and suddenly the clouds open up and it pours rain. There’s nothing to do but endure it, get drenched, and try to keep the groceries dry as much as possible. I can’t travel through time and remember to carry an umbrella. I can’t stop the storm from forming. I just have to get wet and deal with it. This too shall pass.
I am not working for either Lex Luthor or the Joker here in 2016 and I doubt I will ever agree to work for another national political campaign. National politics have gotten to a point so far removed from reality where they feel like something happening in a movie and not in real life. I believe that all of us are now just observers and that the results of national elections may even be predetermined. My focus the last few years has been working on the ground with local issues as a citizen sleuth. I don’t even bother with candidates in races, but instead have been using Freedom of Information Act requests to audit spending and piece together wrongdoing in various local and state public offices. And then I systematically confront the various boards with their wrongdoing, forcing change at that local level. It is slow, methodical, and (my boyfriend Justin says) boring work but I like that in a few months I can see results: the lavish trips that elected officials used to take stop; trustees write checks to reimburse the public for things they stole; bad public employees quit to spend more time with their families and bad board members decide to retire all of a sudden. I get more joy out of this than I ever did covering the national political scene, because I feel that being a local government watchdog actually matters…whereas filing another column about the latest scandal in Washington is just more shouting into a thunderstorm. No matter how good of a shouter I am or how witty my shouting, does it ever matter?
Making greedy pigs who stole taxpayer money from a library give it back matters. Getting crooked cops to admit they were wrong and fork over a settlement matters. Freeing a man who was being starved to death in a medical facility matters. The spectacles that happened in Philadelphia and Cleveland might as well have happened on Mars for all they matter.
My attitude towards this 2016 race is largely to be an observer of history, for this race is historic in so many (dare I say) fabulous ways. It’s the first presidential contest in my lifetime that feels like it is about more than just Democrats and Republicans jockeying for a crown. I feel that the real fight is between the Establishment (which has solidified around Hillary Clinton) and What Comes Next (which is the power behind Trump). I also feel that the Establishment is fighting under a banner of Globalism, where the end game is to destroy American sovereignty and erase our borders as prelude to that Utopia that lunatics truly and deeply believe will follow once the United Nations effectively controls the planet. The Establishment wants to end America as a place and a concept and a unique nation and replace it with some new entity that is the United Nations, but turned into a country (and not just an ugly building in Manhattan). Trump, to me, is the awakening of an Americanist giant and an opportunity for people who love America as a place/concept/nation to stand up and push back against the globalists. If Hillary wins, I think America ends with a whimper…but if Trump wins there’s at least the chance of upending the Establishment’s globalist schemes.
I feel that Hillary Clinton sold her soul to Globalism because she wants to be president so badly…and to be the first female president, in particular. For decades, we’ve been conditioned by the Establishment that a Hillary Clinton presidency is just destiny. It was always “the future” in SciFi shows, and now the future has arrived. Last night, she appeared on stage dressed up all in white to accept the nomination. Rebecca Mansour observed today that wearing white is traditional for a royal coronation. Depending on your generation and its pop culture references, Hillary was either Queen Elizabeth/Queen Victoria, Boss Hogg (from Dukes of Hazard), or President Snow from Hunger Games in her bright white pantsuit (which completed the patriotic tricolor she started by wearing all red one night and then all blue the next night, before appearing in all white during the convention’s finale).
The other day, Breitbart ran an interesting article charting all the times in recent years that some movie or tee-vee show pushed the idea of Hillary being president…and the three that I always remembered were:
* The tee-vee show Sliders in 1994 or 1995, making Hillary president instead of Bill in an episode set in an alternate dimension where women, not men, were in charge.
* Hillary’s face appearing on money in the Eddie Murphy movie The Adventures of Pluto Nash, as she was president at some time in the future before the events of that movie began.
* The aircraft carrier USS Hillary Clinton appearing in the Axis of Time series of SciFi novels, which was a ship named after the 44th President of the United States (Hillary) in that timeline.
In 2008 when the nomination was taken away from her, it felt like a new timeline had been created where Hillary would instead be kept from becoming president. The way that the DNC outsmarted and outplayed the Clintons was masterful in that they found the only kryptonite to keep her from the White House: a charismatic black man who struck the perfect balance between being someone that white people enjoyed listening to and black people enthusiastically supporting because his skin was their same color. He looked black, did what white people in the DNC wanted him to do, and could orate like a black preacher when needed. Obama made blacks cheer and whites swoon. Hillary was outfoxed. It was like someone traveled back from the future with a recipe for the one thing that could have prevented Hillary Clinton from ever being president…and then the DNC followed that recipe.
Everything that has happened since, in these strange and Idiocracy-prone eight years, has felt like a surreal, bad dream. In the Hulu show 11/22/63, based on the Stephen King book of the same name, when a man who traveled from the future came back to stop Oswald from shooting Kennedy, the past didn’t want to be changed and would fight back at him in interesting ways. In our world, our tee-vees, books, and movies told us for years that it was decided by The Powers That Be that Hillary Clinton would be president one day (she’s even president at one point in the Stephen King book!). Every time that Hillary’s been let off the hook for something awful she admitted that she did or the Media runs cover and outright lies for her, it feels like the universe is altering itself in such a way to force the destiny of that Hillary Clinton presidency to come true. History is rewritten and reality is altered in front of our eyes to create a more positive narrative for Hillary.
The reporting on the Democrat Convention this week reads to me like something from an alternate universe. The reporters who write about the Democrat Convention being a success were watching some other convention. It was not the same procession of grievances, victim stories, and shouting angrily in Spanish that I sat through day after day (for 8 hours a day!). Similarly, the reporting done by the Media on the Republican Convention in Cleveland was all wrong as well…because I felt out of the two conventions the only positive and America-focused convention was Trump’s. Hillary’s convention was all about carving people into their identity blocs, then telling them they were victims and that Hillary Clinton would “fight for them” because she is a woman. None of it really made sense to me. Trump’s convention was about stating that Hillary Clinton is repeatedly caught lying (which is true) and that she should never be trusted (since she lies and admits that she lies).
Here are 10 other observations I’m struck with today about the Democrats’ convention in Philadelphia:
