The modern US election system is so obviously rigged that even some MSM outlets have taken notice. The Republicans are doing everything short of assassinating Trump to get someone, anyone, in the spot they desperately want to be anyone BUT Trump and not without good reason. There is ample evidence that with either Trump or Cruz as their contender, the GOP is going to go down in flames and probably take the Senate with them. However, with Hillary stealing the election "fair and square," she is a very vulnerable candidate whose idiotic position way too far to the left on guns may cost her dearly when her opponents blanket the airwaves with her speeches about getting rid of all guns (which is not right wing fantasy but true as I have seen the speeches myself). This cost Gore the election in 2000 and Democrats have wisely stayed away from the topic until Madam Douchebag keeps bringing it up to slam Bernie and distance herself even further from anyone not a dirt munching, tree hugging druid.
Then there is the Colorado "election" which was nothing more than a blatant power grab to deny Trump the nomination. Resident Asshole Reince Priebus (how often was this guy beaten up in school and is now taking it out on the rest of us?) has defended the outcome saying "them's the rules," not understanding that if the game is rigged, which this process is, rules do not matter. If you are cheating legally, it is still cheating. Just because people have offshore money doesn't make them crooks, some say. That is true, but the rest of us don't have to like how the game is played when 99% of us get fucked up the ass at the end of each turn. What idiot wants to play that game, regardless of the rules?
The rich are stealing from us blind. And because it is so complex and boring, no one is willing to pay attention. If they did, politicians would be lined up in the street and shot. But because there are no cliff notes for it, no one knows and no one cares. Right now the DOW is reaching record highs, around 180 points up as of 3 PM. Why? The IMF, Bank of America and Goldman Sachs all had terrible predictions for the rest of the year for the global economy, retail sales have disappeared resulting in lots of store closing and hundreds of thousands of jobs that will disappear over the next few months, and plummeting oil, which investors said "meh" to. What do they know that the rest of the world doesn't because everyone and everything seems to be winding down not up?
Here is a list of all the problems occurring right now as the DOW appears to be moving and further and further away from reality, ala 2007 from activistpost.com:
Does any of that sound good? Despite many predicting a bloodbath with banks, and not without good reason, JP Morgan came out with far better profits than thought, which begs the question: how? Here is what some in the media expected:
