Trump Bashing Reaches Epic Proportions 


Ideologically he’s over-the-top like all other duopoly power presidential aspirants, supporting the same dirty business as usual agenda.

His unorthodox campaigning against the grain sounding anti-establishment put him at odds with Republican power brokers.

They’re committed to anyone but him – with, as expected, echo chamber scoundrel media backing. Bashing him virtually drowns out other news.

A separate article discussed Republican desperation in hauling out failed presidential aspirant Mitt Romney, a vulture capital predator profiting from asset-stripping companies and mass-firings to cut costs.

The March 4 Washington Post edition published an astonishing nine anti-Trump opinion pieces in one issue, plus other reports with a distinct anti-Trump flavor.

New York Times editors bash him relentlessly while shamelessly supporting war goddess Hillary Clinton, their latest broadside citing an open letter from 95 so-called Republican national security experts, declaring “united…opposition to a Donald Trump presidency,” followed by a volley of pejoratives.

Claiming Trump’s agenda makes America less safe ignores endless post-9/11 US wars of aggression, raging in multiple theaters, Obama more belligerent than Bush, Hillary Clinton to continue his ruthlessness on steroids if elected president.

Times op-ed columnist Charles Blow blasted Trump with a volley of pejoratives, most applicable to the array of despicable aspirants, calling him “nativist, sexist…fascist,” demagogic, “oddly entertaining, vacuous…vain, disarming and terrifyingly dangerous.”

Wall Street Journal contributor, former Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal was over-the-top claiming Obama created Trump, his support stemming from “deficiencies of the incumbent.”

The political silly season usually runs from early summer to the beginning of autumn in election years – characterized by demagogic and hyperbolic posturing.

It’s been raging now since Trump declared his candidacy for president in mid-June last year – with comments like America “has become a dumping ground for everybody’s problems.”

“(W)e have no protection and we have no competence. We don’t know what’s happening. (I)t’s got to stop, and it’s got to stop fast.”

Things have been downhill since then. Expect ferocious Trump bashing to continue, bipartisan campaigning and media coverage ignoring vital issues.

What matters most to Americans goes unaddressed. No matter who succeeds Obama next January, monied interests exclusively will continue being served at the expense of popular ones.

The state of America is deplorable, a nation unfit to live in except for its privileged few.

Republican Desperation

What new dirty tricks the Republican wing of America’s one-party state plans to derail Trump’s campaign remains to be seen.

Everything tried so far made him stronger. You’d think party bosses would have caught on by now. Instead they hauled out former Massachusetts governor, failed presidential aspirant Mitt Romney.

His vulture capital firm, Bain Capital, profiteered by asset-stripping companies, bankrupting them, and leaving their employees high and dry on their own.

He once said saving or creating jobs wasn’t his concern, adding he likes “being able to fire people,” claiming what’s good for business alone matters.

As a presidential aspirant, he called Russia “without question our number one geopolitical foe,” saying it consistently “stand(s) up for the world’s worst actors.”

As Massachusetts governor, he was aloof and authoritarian, insensitive about ordinary people’s needs. Earlier he called homosexuality “perverse and reprehensible.”

He believes in traditional gender roles. Male dominance is fundamental, women confined to child bearing, rearing and homemaking.

He’s been accused of being arrogant, racist, anti-Semitic, and surrounding himself with powerful white men. His dark side represents pure evil, ideal for political office in America.

Using him to bash Trump shows desperation in Republican ranks. He obliged with stinging pejoratives, calling him “a phony, a fraud, a misogynist and a bully who threatens America’s future.”

“His domestic policies would lead to recession. His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe.”

“He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president. And his personal qualities would mean America would cease to be a shining city on a hill,” using a 1980s Ronald Reagan phrase without attribution.

He rambled on offensively, reciting pre-scripted lines, urging anyone but Trump without endorsing another aspirant.

Hours later, Trump responded, calling Romney a “failed candidate. (He) let us down (running a) horrible campaign. (He) should have beaten Obama easily.”

Love or hate him, Trump made the political season interesting for the first time in memory. Campaigning against the grain won him millions of supporters.

“I brought millions of people into the Republican party (in) a short period of time,” he claimed. “It’s the biggest story in politics…They’re leaving the Democrats…leaving the independents.”

“There’s great enthusiasm in the Republican party except in the establishment.” He’ll continue campaigning all-out for the party’s nomination, defying power brokers against him.

America’s political system excludes voter choices. Names and faces change. Dirty business as usual continues no matter who holds the levers of power.
