We just got done hearing from none other than Mitt Romney regarding Donald Trump campaigning for The Presidency. I am not really sure where to start with this topic as I do not believe there is any precedence. Starting with my conclusion the "establishment" is in OUTRIGHT PANIC! mode, let's work backwards. What follows is my personal opinion, like it, don't like it, read it or do not, I am still to this point allowed to actually have an opinion and can still voice it ...so I will!
It is obvious to almost anyone with half a functioning brain there is "something" (MANY things!) wrong and going in the wrong direction in the U.S.. Whether it be the economy, rule of law, governance, morality or what have you, our country is headed in the wrong direction. Donald Trump was looked at as a "joke candidate" by both Republican and Democrat establishments, now he is viewed as a threat. He has and is saying many things "the people" are thinking. About the only thing he hasn't said is "I am mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!". Generally speaking, the mood in the country is that of ANGER! Voters took their anger out on Congress in the last election ...but nothing changed and the slide towards the infernal regions has continued unabated.
What Mitt Romney did today in my opinion is despicable (when asking Jim what he thought, he said "Romney made a complete, absolute and utter ass out of himself, I have never in all my years seen anything even close to this in politics"). He failed to win an election for president in 2012 on the coat tails of an absolute landslide Congressional sweep for the Republicans. Call what he is doing now a "poor loser" or anything else you want, I call it desperation ...but not only on his part! Until yesterday, Rupert Murdoch, the Koch brothers and other Republican interests had indicated they would cobble together $75 million to make sure Mr. Trump did not win, they have now announced they will not do this. You can however rest assured, Mitt Romney would not have come forward with his Trump attack without their permission or wishes.
Let's be perfectly clear, the groundswell of angry Americans is unlike anything any of us has seen in our lifetime. In essence, Mitt Romney just spoke dozens of sound bites that Hillary Clinton will use if campaigning head to head with Trump. Please understand this, there are NOT two parties as they are both the same and serve the very same masters. We have "Republicans and Democrats" so it appears (to) we peasants have a choice in this great thing called democracy. Without a doubt we have only one choice and that is to vote for "their candidate". If Mitt Romney's speech today did not open your eyes to this reality, I don't know what will!
You see, Donald Trump is an absolute threat to the status quo. The "status quo" being a country that is being milked and a treasury being bilked as hard as possible. Any "outsider" who comes in and interrupts this process is just plain bad for "profits"! I have privately said for at least 4-5 months that there is zero chance Mr. Trump will become president. It is my opinion if he gets close, he will be assassinated and the blame will go on some guy with "three names". I hope I am wrong on this but I highly doubt it.
Our country is on the verge of collapse in so many different areas. If you look at gold as a barometer, it is now speaking to you. After a two month rise it should have corrected but has not. If you look at the COT numbers, gold should already have been slaughtered by $100 or more, it hasn't. I believe gold is rising for one (or all) of a half dozen or more reasons. War, derivatives, debasement, China's bid to value gold fairly via their own exchange, a "truth bomb" being dropped or whatever.
As you know by my past writings, I fully expect some sort of truth bomb to be dropped that pulls the rug out from under the dollar and thus the financial system in the West. The "truth" can be any one or all topics. Does the West have any gold of substance left? False flags or real terrorism? Is the West bankrupt financially? Is "it" real or is it fraud? No autopsy? Birth certificate? 911? I would even say since there are paper trails to almost all finance, do we have a Congress bought and paid for? Which brokers were involved? Audit the Fed? The Treasury? The bottom line is this, the whole thing is a PONZI scheme and people are beginning to sense this, what if a "truth bomb" proved this either directly ...or indirectly by making it fall?
To finish, Donald Trump poses a huge risk to the "establishment" and as of yesterday the only outsider left in the field. I will not be surprised if Mitt Romney's outburst of panic actually gathers more support for Mr. Trump even from Democrats. Please do not get me wrong, I am not doing a "yay rah rah Donald" here but he is the only one pointing to the problems the establishment has created. Now, the establishment sees him to be a very credible problem for THEM! The Irish bookies paid out on bets yesterday to those who bet on Trump as the Republican candidate. I would not have done this because desperate people do desperate things and the "establishment" has now shown their hand of pure desperation!
