Interesting that a friend sent this at about the same time you sent your email, so the two were sitting side-by-side in my email box. I read this right after reading yours.
I see things happening the same way as you do. At first, there is great resistance to change, and you think it will take forever to happen … and often it does; but the biggest changes often come when we reach tipping points or … in the present case, I think something much bigger than just a tipping point — a cataclysm … a major fault disruption.
From Michael Snyder on the one hand to you on the other, I hear people whispering about Obama being the last US president. Mostly I am hearing it from self-appointed prophets that I don’t put any stock in; but it’s interesting that I keep hearing this rumor from pretty divergent sources.
Anyway, the following article is interesting in light of your email. (Again, a different kind of source, but seeing the same kind of thing.) Like you, I’ve always seen Trump as being the likely winner of the Republican round, and Bernie could very well be a come-from-behind underdog and still get the Democrat nod. That will create quite a dust-up in both parties as the establishment tries to re-establish its lock on politics. It’s amusing to see the establishment finally shaken because, for the first time in decades, politics is not all going their way.
How all of that turns into Obama being the last president of the US, I don’t know. I cannot really see that happening as it is such a wildly unconstitutional outcome; BUT I do believe things will change greatly this year. Obama has diminished US power in favor of more power to the UN, particularly with his latest trade agreements which greatly empower corporations over sovereign states. I see it as he has used the presidency to weaken the US and strengthen law by international agreements so that, when he steps into the role he hopes for at the UN, he will have the power and the lack of interference he needs.
A time of great change is here. It stalled out more after January than I thought it would; yet, I’m not surprised, and I recall that I thought back then I should temper my view of rapid change just a little in light of the fact that this is a powerful election year where the establishment in both parties has incentive to pull every trick they possibly can because of Sanders and Trump presenting viable alternatives. Its like pulling out the choke as the engine leans out because its running out of gas. You get one last big burst of power, and then the engine dies. In this case, the burst could easily last through the election cycle, but I think we’re going to start seeing some really weird stuff as banks and their politicians dow what they can to keep the old dinosaur economy alive.
Let’s chew on this a bit….. ” because they are bringing up issues they are not supposed to bring up. Fundamentally, in an open society, change has to flow from the bottom to the top”……….and spit whatever you have, out….ha,ha…
In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. The only rational patriotism, is loyalty to the nation all the time, loyalty to the government when it deserves it.

Why Trump Winning the Republican Nomination is Good for American Democracy
By Mike Krieger, May 4, 2016
While it might sound strange, a coronation of Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary will mark the end of the party as we know it. There’s been a lot written about the “Sanders surge,” with much of it revolving around Hillary Clinton’s extreme personal weakness as a candidate. While this is indisputable, it’s also a convenient way for the status quo to exempt itself from fault and discount genuine grassroots anger. I’m of the view that Sanders’ support is more about people liking him than them disliking Hillary, particularly when it comes to registered Democrats. He’s not merely seen as the “least bad choice.” People really do like him.
The Sanders appeal is twofold. He is seen as unusually honest and consistent for someone who’s held elected office for much of his life, plus he advocates a refreshingly anti-establishment view on core issues that matter to an increasing number of Americans. These include militarism, Wall Street bailouts, a two-tiered justice system, the prohibitive cost of college education, healthcare insecurity and a “rigged economy.” While Hillary is being forced to pay lip service to these issues, everybody knows she doesn’t mean a word of it. She means it less than Obama meant it in 2008, and Obama really didn’t mean it.
Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have done America a great deal of good. By running from the political fringes, they have shattered status quo taboos and exposed the two-party political system for the monumental sham it is.
Whether you like either one of them is irrelevant. The truth about how undemocratic our elections actually are, and the disturbing overlap when it comes to establishment Republicans and Democrats needed exposing, and that’s exactly what’s happened this election season.
Personally, I wanted to see Trump vs. Sanders in the general election. I think the public deserved two non-mainstream choices for President for once in their lives, and such a match up would have provided two distinct non status quo visions for the future. That said, Trump vs. Clinton is the second best option.
The process of awakening that’s been happening across the electorate this campaign season is in large part due to the presence of Trump and Sanders, and this awakening is far more important than who wins in November. As Edward Snowden was quoted saying in, A Whistleblower Manifesto:
Fundamentally, in an open society, change has to flow from the bottom to the top.
He’s right. If you want fundamental, long-term change consistent with Constitutional principles, it needs to come from an informed citizenry.
America has not had a remotely informed citizenry in over a generation. The divide and conquer tactics of both establishment parties have proven tremendously successful in pulling the wool over everybody’s eyes and convincing them that there’s actually a real difference, when in reality both parties maintain the exact same position on a vast majority of the nation’s key issues. These include:
1) Support for interventionist wars of imperialism abroad.
2) An embrace of cronyism and corruption throughout the public and private sector.
3) A total pandering to Wall Street and support for taxpayer bailouts without accountability.
4) Support for the inhumane failure that is the war on the drugs.
5) Support for fake free trade deals that are actually corporate giveaways to insiders and donors.
6) Support for the unconstitutional and unaccountable mass surveillance of the American public.
I could go on, but you get the point. The interesting thing about the 2016 election is that millions of Americans are finally coming around to rejecting the policies listed above. The status quo, of course, has not; and therein lies the status quo’s problem.
Between Sanders and Trump, the status quo policy planks listed above have all come under attack. This cannot be allowed, which is precisely why the establishment has relentlessly fought both men in their attempts to win the nomination of their respective parties.
The status quo doesn’t actually care if a Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio or Hillary Clinton wins the U.S. Presidency. The status quo wins either way. Not only because those individuals unquestionably will support the status quo agenda, but more importantly, they will largely refrain from bringing up any real issues during their campaigns.
Rather than being fought along the lines of trade deals, Wall Street corruption and disastrous foreign policy, a Bush vs. Clinton matchup would largely be centered around debate about guns, abortion, transgender bathrooms and disingenuous talking points about the free market vs. big government. This distraction provides fertile ground for continued status quo theft.
The problem with Trump is Trump brings up some real issues he’s not supposed to talk about, just like Sanders has done in the Democratic primary. This is extremely dangerous to the status quo because it teaches the American peasants to question issues and think about stuff they aren’t supposed to think about or have an opinion on. There’s nothing more dangerous than a public filled with critical thinkers. As George Carlin brilliantly explained so many years ago:
The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they’re an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice.
You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land.
They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear. They’ve got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.
But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago.
You know what they want? Obedient workers people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.
And, now, they’re coming for your Social Security. They want your fucking retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all, sooner or later, because they own this fucking place. It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club.
This country is finished.
That’s all you really need to know. Politicians are irrelevant. They are there to spin issues and make sure the public remains as ignorant, distracted and divided along inconsequential themes as possible. The thing the status quo really fears is a population that begins to think outside the box, which is why both Trump and Sanders have been seen as existential threats to their corrupt and putrid sandbox of power.
So with all of that out of the way, it makes perfect sense that some establishment Republicans have announced they will support Hillary Clinton. Go back and read my status quo policy planks outlined earlier. Any Republican in favor of them will naturally support Hillary Clinton, because Hillary Clinton will protect and coddle their racket. This is guaranteed. Trump may also end up coddling the establishment, but the status quo can’t be 100% sure. He’s a wildcard and he’s uncaged. They can’t have someone like that causing them headaches and potentially getting the plebs all wound up.
Now let’s turn to Politico, to see a little of what I’m talking about. From the article, Republicans Consider Clinton over Trump:
While many conservative stalwarts are conflicted and stuck in a state of paralysis, some are considering the ultimate betrayal.
Hours before Indiana polls closed Tuesday evening when it was becoming clear that Trump was headed for a decisive win, some prominent Republicans were moving away from him. Mark Salter, John McCain’s former campaign speechwriter, signaled his support for Clinton via Twitter. Conservative pundit Ben Howe did the same.
Schmidt predicted that “a substantial amount of Republican officials who have worked in Republican administrations, especially on issues of defense and national security, will endorse Hillary Clinton in the campaign.”
But the most absolutist opposition to Trump is largely held by the GOP’s donor class and Washington-based establishment—the very people Trump and his supporters have delighted in offending from the start.
These four paragraphs tell you everything you need to know. It’s one thing to dislike Trump and decide you are unable to support him.
Given some of his rhetoric in the primary, I can certainly understand and respect this position. However, supporting Hillary Clinton, one of the most shady, dishonest, warmongering, corrupt animals the world has ever seen, is a whole other ballgame. It tells you who these so-called “conservatives” really are: status quo sycophants.
But it’s not just Republicans coming out in favor of Clinton. There’s increasing evidence that Clinton will target establishment Republicans for votes. The AP reports:
ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — With Donald Trump all but clinching the Republican nomination for president, Hillary Clinton is beginning to explore ways to woo Republicans turned off by the brash billionaire.
“I’m with her,” tweeted Mark Salter, a top campaign aide to 2008 Republican nominee John McCain, on Tuesday.
Democrats caution their effort to win over Clinton Republicans — or Hilla-cans, perhaps — is in its earliest stages, but could grow to include ads and other outreach targeted in particular at suburban women in battleground states. Already, aides say, a number of Republicans have privately told Clinton and her team they plan to break party ranks and support her as soon as Trump formally captures his party’s nomination.
“We have an informed understanding that we could have the potential to expect support from not just Democrats and independents, but Republicans, too,” said Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon. “There’s a time and place for that support to make itself known.”
Clinton has begun casting her candidacy in recent days as a cry to unify a divided country. After a series of victories last week, which all but ensured she will capture her party’s nomination, Clinton called on Democrats, independents and what she called “thoughtful Republicans” to back her bid.
Guy Cecil, chief strategist of Priorities USA Action, the super PAC backing her campaign, echoed that language Tuesday night, calling on “Democrats, independents and reasonable Republicans” to reject Trump’s “outdated ideas.”
Irrespective of what you think of Trump, his continued survival in the Presidential circus is undoubtedly good. Not because he’s some sort of savior who will “Make America Great Again,” but because he’s bringing up issues he’s not supposed to bring up.
Because he’s getting people who have given up on the political process engaged again. Because he’s convincing tens of millions of Americans that it really is possible to give the status quo the boot.
At the end of the day, it’s not the actions of any particular individual that instills true fear in the U.S. establishment and deep state government. What really scares them is a population capable of critical thought beyond false left-right paradigm talking points, and both Sanders and Trump should be applauded for their roles in this regard.
George Carlin – It’s a big club and you ain’t in it:
thank you for your comprehensive response that explores the coming change in a complete manner. The article you have forwarded to me is indeed very good as it analyzes objectively the real political situation with the US election race from a conventional point of view.
I particularly like Mike Krieger’s statement:
“Politicians are irrelevant. They are there to spin issues and make sure the public remains as ignorant, distracted and divided along inconsequentially themes as possible.”
This is the absolute truth and that is why one must envision a new reality where national states and politicians no longer exist. I have defined the national state as the single most important source of evil on this planet and have explained that this is a recent phenomenon in the history of mankind. From this conclusion one can easily find new solutions of social life that will guarantee the freedom and the sovereignty of the individual through elimination of the national state. Therefore all good-will patriots in the USA or elsewhere are on the wrong track – it is another form of brainwashing.
We need much bolder solutions to exterminate the evil on this planet. And this solution can only come if there is first a profound reform, reset of the Orion monetary system that is, together with the national state, the second biggest form of human enslavement and a source of evil. We have now reached the endpoint where the national state has become even a hindrance for the financial system to fully suppress humanity and that is why the ruling cabal want to eliminate the sovereignty of the national state through international agreements such as TTIP. However the recent revelations on this treaty have shown that it stinks like a “dead herring in the moonshine” to quote Billi Wilder’s excellent movie “One, Two, Three” and it has no chance of approval by the EU anymore. Obama’s propaganda visit to Europe on behalf of TTIP has fully failed. This is all part of the new energetic conditions that have been introduced on this planet with the beginning of this month as this very important message that I have just published tells you:
This is how our group, the Planetary Ascension Team, assesses the coming change from a higher vantage point of view and I am fully aware that these kinds of insights may not be shared or appreciated by people who have no direct access to them. But because of that they are so powerful as they arrive as unfathomable destiny and knock down the illusions of the people by opening their eyes for the truth.
At the same time we do not stay idle but create the future of humanity in the Now. The fact that we now observe an acceleration in the collapse of the financial system is not a random phenomenon but has been carefully prepared by us at a higher level. The irreversibility of the financial collapse was sealed when I wrote in early February and then published on March 1st the new project of the Astral currency that will very soon substitute the worthless fiat monies after their crash:
The merit of this new monetary reset is that it automatically eliminates the national state after it eliminates the current corrupt banking system. It is a “double whammy” as you say in English and “killing two rabbits with one shot” as we say in Bulgarian.
I am following the financial discussions worldwide for a very long time and I am flabbergasted that so many intelligent men have so little to say on how this rigged financial system can be ideally and theoretically replaced with a new just system of payments and transactions that excludes any form of fraud, greed and misuse. In other words I cannot stop being amazed at the intellectual laziness of the experts to sever all attachments to this toxic reality, to go new pathways and become truly bold thinkers. But at the end it may suffice to have only a few such thinkers to turn around the course of the events and this is precisely what humanity will experience this year. This is the mission of our group, the Planetary Ascension Team, that works both on the ground and simultaneously in many dimensions to prepare the coming Apocalypse which in Greek simply means Revelation that may indeed take the form of a global catastrophe depending on the individual mentality of the people.
With best regards
