When it comes to breaking down what has been happening in the United States over the last few years, few to none are better than Lee Smith.
To understand what is happening in the U.S. today you have to first understand that it’s not really Donald J. Trump the ruling class hates. It’s what he represents. If you or I would have taken on the ruling class and won, we’d be in the same boat.
The elites (Pentagon officials, Tech giant owners, and some of America’s top companies such as Nike, NBA, Apple, JP Morgan, etc..) chose the Chinese Communist Party a long time ago. Cheap labor (slave labor is cheap) and big pay days bought the uber wealthy and powerful class, years ago.
It is largely because Trump sought to decouple the United States from the CCP that America’s China Class, which owns the platforms on which Americans communicate, has waged a relentless campaign of information warfare against him through its social media and prestige media brands.
Americans are watching the war with the Chinese Communist Party and their American representatives unfold before their own eyes, whether they recognize it or not.
The new "bombshells" about President Trump are dropping on almost a daily basis. They're virtually all debunked in almost real time, but the idea is to do damage and keep Trump on the defensive, spending money to simply stay afloat instead of moving his campaign forward.
As Smith says, it's Politics 101.
The elite class, with ties to the CCP, own the platforms of communication in the U.S. and thus, journalism has become political activism.
American journalists, who now draw their paychecks directly and indirectly from the country’s largest economic interest—technopolies like Amazon, Apple, Google, and Facebook—are now turning the public sphere into a phantasmagoria of conspiracy theories and hysteria to cement the politburo’s position and privilege.
As for the top military brass, Trump is right, many of them do have contempt for him. He's pulling troops out of the Middle East and signing peace deals with all involved. Their business is war.
Trump is right that top military brass has it out for him and probably for the reasons he states—because pointless engagements like Afghanistan advance them personally and land them lucrative seats on the boards of defense and technology companies. But the personal ambitions of Pentagon officials are finally no more relevant here than those of the FBI, DOJ, CIA, and State Department bureaucrats who played a role in the first installment of the Russiagate franchise. They’re walk-on parts, as are the various media operatives and outlets like Bob Woodward and the Atlantic, in a much larger corruption of our politics.
The American Elite Class is better named America's China Class. They joined China long ago instead of trying to defeat them. They sold America out. While America lost jobs and the middle class began to shrink, these folks got wealthy. Massively wealthy and powerful.
As Lee points out, the key to understanding what's going on in America right now lies with understanding the financial ties America's Elites have to China.
