Aborting the Trump Revolution, by Pat Buchanan.
In taking that $915 million loss in 1995, and carrying it forward to shelter future income, Donald Trump did nothing wrong. By both his family and his business, he did everything right. …
One needs a machete to cut through this hypocrisy.
Hillary Clinton benefited from a $700,000 loss on her 2015 income taxes. In the days of poverty in Arkansas, she took a $2 deduction for a contribution to charity of Bill’s old underpants.
Five weeks before Election Day, Trump’s taxes have displaced the former Miss Universe as the critical issue, as determined by the anti-Trump media.
Their motivation is not difficult to discern. Their goals are two. First, make Trump unacceptable as an agent of change. Second, keep the people distracted from their determination to rid America of the incompetent and corrupt ruling class that controls this capital city.
The US press, like the first debate, is full of trivia about Trump, designed to damage him. The Australian media copies.
Real issues like immigration, Muslim integration, black underachievement and riots, the sucking economy, trade deals, and even possible contretemps with Russia over Syria are scarcely mentioned. This is the power of the press to distract and frame. And that’s before even mentioning Hillary’s numerous, far larger, and more serious scandals. Where would the Democrats be without media backing?
Consider but a few of the disasters that establishment does not want discussed or debated, or the American people thinking about, when they head for the polls in November.
There is the great betrayal of the American working class, the deindustrialization of the country, and the loss of economic independence it took America a century to achieve. …
Then there is the illegal invasion of America and Europe by the impoverished masses of the south, who have never before been fully assimilated into any Western nation.
Unrivaled since the last days of the Roman Empire, this invasion has Americans pleading for a security wall on their border, propelled Britain’s exit from the EU, and could yet cause a breakup of Europe.
What is at stake here? Ultimately, Western civilization.
Sure, let’s talk about Miss Piggy and someone’s 1995 tax returns.
It’s not, to use their favorite word, sustainable.
But what happens if Hillary Clinton’s media acolytes keep the country’s focus on trivial pursuits, and she prevails?
What happens if the election, in which America demanded change in both parties, results in change in neither party?
One wonders: Do America’s reigning elites believe the Trump movement is but a passing phase? Do they believe that the rise of populist and nationalist parties across Europe is but a seasonal epidemic of the flu that will die out, after which we can all get back to building the New World Order of Bush I and Barack Obama?
