Because the US executive and legislature have been largely controlled by transnational interests since the Woodrow Wilson administration that’s a gross understatement. Recently-released FBI documents now actually reference a “shadow government” overseeing affairs at the US State Department.
Tonight the third and final US Presidential Debate is scheduled. Corporate-controlled media that stand to profit most from the status quo (and that also looked the other way when the Bush/Cheney ticket stole the 2000 and 2004 elections) persist in feigning astonishment at the Republican candidate’s repeated assertion that “the system is rigged.”
One in four young Americans state they would rather experience a global apocalypse than see either major party candidate elected. As Reuters observes today,
Young Americans are so dissatisfied with their choices in this presidential election that nearly one in four told an opinion poll they would rather have a giant meteor destroy the Earth than see Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in the White House.
The tongue-in-cheek question was intended to gauge young Americans’ level of unhappiness about their choices in the Nov. 8 election, said Joshua Dyck, co-director of UMass Lowell’s Center for Public Opinion, which conducted the poll alongside Odyssey Millennials.
A competent journalist might conclude from the above that something is seriously amiss in the broader political economy and the nation as a whole.
The Green Party ticket of Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka will be on 90% of ballots throughout the United States, San Francisco Bay View reports. Earlier this month former Congressman and US presidential candidate Ron Paul praised Stein’s stance on foreign policy. The Green Party’s position on anthropogenic global warming is far less desirable. This week Stein remarked to an Infowars correspondent that if Hillary Clinton is elected “we’re kind of going to war with Russia folks.” Indeed, yet this time if the election is too close to steal there might not even be one.
