But it is now far worse than that. In the past decades, the oligarchy was manipulating government simply to maximize its profits, as Lapham wrote: “The politicians dress up the deals in the language of law or policy, but they’re in the business of brokering the tax revenue, and what keeps them in office is not their talent for oratory but their skill at redistributing the national income in a way that rewards their clients, patrons, friends and campaign contributors.”
Today, in addition to maximizing profits, the oligarchy wants to control what you read, what you think and what you are permitted to express. There is an unholy and dangerous alliance combining the media and Big Tech with the national security state, that is, the intelligence services, the military-industrial complex and law enforcement. It is, quite literally, an effort to abrogate the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and eliminate free speech. The United States government has gone beyond authoritarianism towards the Chinese Communist Party model of state capitalism and totalitarianism. And what better candidate to carry that model forward than Joe Biden, who is already compromised by his close connections with the Chinese government?
Make no mistake, Donald Trump won the 2020 Presidential election. It was stolen, not only from him, but, more importantly, it was stolen from the American people by the well-organized and well-financed application of massive electoral fraud. A detailed description of the election fraud was published by Dr. Peter Navarro. Most of what the media are reporting about the election and the events following it, such as the so-called “assault” on the Capitol building, are lies combined with Big Tech censorship and psychological operations conducted by those with connections to the national security state.
Media disinformation and Big Tech censorship are extensions of and an attempt to solidify the fraudulent 2020 election, which was not simply a contest between the Democrat and Republican ideologies, but a battle between the entrenched power of the bipartisan political establishment versus the freedom and wellbeing of the American people Contrary to the claims of the discredited media, there was never a cult of personality.
Donald Trump was an instrument by which the American people might wrest control of their own government from the vicelike grip of the oligarchy. The oligarchy hates, not just Trump, but hates and fears the American people, who represent an obstacle to the oligarchy’s use of government as a lever to obtain personal power and profit. It is a fundamental principle of democracy that the efficiency and effectiveness of government are directly dependent upon the trustworthiness of government officials as representatives and executors of the views and desires of the people.
Americans now believe that we are not citizens of a republic, but subjects of a fraudulently-elected aristocracy, composed of a selfabsorbed permanent political class, which serves the interests of international financiers at the expense of the American people. Although we have elections in the United States, we no longer have representative government. As an American patriot, it is painful for me to admit it because I have always considered the United States as history’s greatest democratic republic, but my country’s government is hopelessly corrupt. The U.S. government must be stripped bare and rebuilt from the ground up according to the U.S. constitution as it was written, not how it has been interpreted by the self-centered incompetents, cowards, profiteers and deranged, but otherwise unemployable ideologues, all of whom currently populate the government’s executive, judicial and legislative branches.
Three years before the start of the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln said a government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free — that a house divided against itself cannot stand. Likewise, a government separated from the people cannot stand. He may be inaugurated, but Joe Biden will never, under any circumstances, be considered a legitimate President.
