President Trump & the Establishment (Part 3)

The New Face of the Plutocracy

By Will Banyan (Copyright © 12 April 2017)

 “A newspaper criticized me and said, ‘Why can’t they have people of modest means?’ Because I want people that made a fortune! Because now they are negotiating [for] you, OK?”

President-elect Donald J. Trump, Des Moines, Iowa, December 9, 2016

“New Administration is lookin’ good. Haven’t seen this many billionaires in 1 place since I staked out Bilderbergs w/Alex Jones. Good times.”

Senator Rand Paul, Twitter, December 23, 2016

 

According to Time magazine’s feature on its “Person of the Year” (Dec. 19, 2016) – Donald J. Trump – the president-elect’s three floor “princely pad” in Trump Tower, New York, was “not a natural place to refine the common touch.” Trump’s apartments were “gilded and gaudy, a dreamscape of faded tapestry, antique clocks and fresco-style ceiling murals of gym-rat Greek gods.” Yet it was here, “under dripping crystal, with diamond cuff-links”, where staff must wear cloth slipcovers on their shoes, “so as not to scuff the shiny marble or stain the plush cream carpets”, that the president-elect lived. Trump, though was not only well aware of the contradiction, but basked in it, jubilantly telling Time’s reporters: “What amazes a lot of people is that I’m sitting in an apartment the likes of which nobody’s ever seen. And yet I represent the workers of the world.” “I care more for the workers”, he told Time when discussing his plan for corporate tax breaks; “My love is for the workers.”

During the campaign Trump seemed to exhibit that “love” when he repeatedly attacked the “hedge fund managers, the financial lobbyists [and] the Wall Street investors”, who were backing Hillary and had become “very wealthy” from globalization while leaving “millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache.” Yet there were also moments when Trump seemed to take their support for granted; where he seemed to demonstrate, in the words of Trump critic and former Brietbart reporter Michelle Fields, that he “isn’t an outsider who understands the struggles of the American people”, but one of the entitled class he claimed to oppose. Trump’s controversial declaration that “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,” was proof, Fields argued, of his sense of “entitlement” and that he “doesn’t value his supporters.”

A Strange Metallic Plaque with Cybernetic Occult Symbolism

Originally Published at Conspiracy Archive on 2008/09/08

A few years ago someone sent me a photo of a metal-cast plaque he had found on the wall at the house of a friend of his family’s. I no longer have the original email and I fail to recall the exact details of what the person (at whose home it was found) did for a living, but he was probably an engineer or a cyberneticist. The person who contacted me was inquiring as to whether I had seen something like this before – I hadn’t.

Here is the photo:
