Raimondo on Trump; Hillary Feigns at Populism

Justin Raimondo asks, “Donald Trump: A False Flag Candidate?

The right-libertarian’s question is understandable considering Trump’s aggressive foreign policy and ties to the Clintons. Also, Trump, like every other candidate, must pander to the Israel lobby (and military-industrial complex), which wants war. Even Rand Paul panders to Israel.

Trump did, however, oppose Dubya’s Iraq War. So, there is hope.

Repeatedly it’s said Trump is incapable of winning the Republican nomination. Who then is better?

Trump is popular, because he’s the only candidate who speaks for Middle America. Without him, we’re better off with a Democrat (to rally against). Additionally, if Trump truly cannot win, his presence at least forces legitimate populist concerns into the debate.

Whom now does Raimondo support? Is he back with Rand Paul? Paul has been busy supporting marijuana legalisation… Talk about fitting a stereotype, appearing like a false-flag.

Because no Republican, aside from Trump, defends Middle America, Hillary has filled the gap. Like Obama, she’ll talk the talk, but she’ll walk in the opposite direction. Why would a Democrat reduce the wealth gap anyway, if the wealth gap itself provides Democrats with votes and serves donor interests? To be clear, if the US middle class were large, Americans would have no need for Democrats.

We see a repeating trend of Democrats feigning to be populists. It wins elections. Democrats never serve the American worker, but they do win his vote.

Hillary is also a war hawk.

It’s perhaps noteworthy that no minorities are leading Democratic contenders (Clinton, Sanders, Biden). So, there’s no Obama to rally against as America’s demographic transformation concludes. Raimondo’s shocked at Trump’s “racism”, but in truth Trump hasn’t said anything remotely “racist”, was only taken out of context. As America becomes more diverse though, racial identity will grow in political importance.

    I still say Trump is a fraud. He’s in it to boost his ego, and nothing more. His pro-war statements only underscore that, in the end, he’s just another establishment clown.

      Well, maybe I should just leave practical politics to you and Red.

      I’m just glad someone has the guts to speak up on certain things. If you or Red find someone better, I’ll probably champion him.

        If we look to federal elections to solve the problems caused by the federal government, we’re just wasting time. In fact, by legitimizing the regime, we’re really making things worse.

        MIke,

        I agree with you on that generally. I just hate to have Jeb represent what’s essentially the party of white people and conservatives.

        Perhaps though if I leave it alone Jeb will ruin things on his own. Jeb vs. Hillary, perhaps people will wake up on their own.

    The AFP’s candidate is Kenn Gividen, a Libertarian… Chuck Baldwin’s great at least. I don’t know anything really about Gividen, but I doubt a Libertarian would focus on the right issues.

    Maybe I should leave things to y’all.

    I think Trump’s policies are more coherent than Raimondo lets on. I think Raimondo is ax grinding here, but I don’t know to what end since he no longer supports Rand.

    I think the AFP is spent now that the American Eagle Party has broken off from it. I suspect the AEP will run Merlin Miller, but I don’t know that.

    I just looked up Kenn Gividen. Apparently he is the Kenn of the DailyKenn, because the Kenn2016 link goes directly to the DailyKenn. And apparently his running mate is Bob Whitaker. I doubt that Gividen is a libertarian. If anything, it looks like the AFP is going in a more explicitly racialist direction.

      A lot of the racial right is libertarian. It’s just how the US right used to be. And the aging right marches on.

      At CofCC and Rebellion blog, the trends are very similar: strongly libertarian with a tendency to blame Marxist ideology for everything. Or they blame greed rather than questioning the system that encourages such greed. From the non-racial libertarians, lately a post on the US military influencing movies has been popular – because it’s an example of government involvement. Well, what about Hollywood in the private sector? What about degenerate HBO?

      I’d always used “Marxist” as a generic, meaning just anti-white / cosmopolitan, so forth; but now I try not to use the term except in specific cases, because I fear it reinforces classical liberalism as the alternative.

      The new president of CofCC seemed totally outside our sphere of thinking, just from interacting online. I linked to the John Attarian article against Economism, and he replied something about Hayek which did not seem to fit with Attarian’s article though I haven’t read much Hayek. He seemed like a friendly, intelligent guy though – just couldn’t seem to even communicate with him.

      And it seems the core of CofCC thinks as he does – or at least some of the core. (Which is just how the American right thinks.)

      Some of those who think they agree with me often hate libertarians but embrace Nietzsche, lol. I hate the Niet too! These are simply not the same groups as traditional conservatives, who are mixed in though.

      And I don’t myself believe a true understanding of nationalism, as simple as it is, can arise within such ideologies. I do not, for example, like Social Darwinism. And I’m quite wary of the term “pathological altruism”.

      Anyway, my primary concern is whites and conservatism will be linked with, and indeed rally to the defence of, the very Wall Street that has made its fortune exploiting whites.

      The other day, I heard an argument how the NASDAQ could enjoy a tailwind (support) from the strong dollar, because so much was produced overseas. The US has globalised so much that a strong dollar could be seen as helpful – incredible! (Strong dollar makes imports cheap, exports expensive, tends to harm domestic industry.)

      He ran as the Libertarian candidate for governor, and he has a set of “Kenn’s Laws”: http://dailykenn.blogspot.com/2014/11/kenns-laws.html

      His blog is very good. I very much like his running mate. Whitaker came up with “The Mantra” and has successfully spread it. Others took a similar strategy, but he’s been very successful.

      I would prefer though ideally that rather than talk of an anti-white conspiracy, or only on such, also focus on how the new globalism threatens all other structures.

      Much of the “Marxism” we have is reaction to Europe’s dominance, its globalism in a sense. With technology and transit, things change too quickly; but eventually we should see a reaction to cosmopolitan globalism.

      I expect these are all very nice people. The Chairman of AFP has five kids and is not threatening when he speaks.

      Keep in mind, I’m grumpy and dislike libertarianism, the ideology; but I know full well that libertarians tend to be great people.
