    "The Useful Idiocy of Donald Trump"

    Chris hedges offers an opinion piece explaining Trump and the reasons he is still President.

    http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/48681.htm

    January 28, 2018 "Information Clearing House" - The problem with Donald Trump is not that he is imbecilic and inept—it is that he has surrendered total power to the oligarchic and military elites. They get what they want. They do what they want. Although the president is a one-man wrecking crew aimed at democratic norms and institutions, although he has turned the United States into a laughingstock around the globe, our national crisis is embodied not in Trump but the corporate state’s now unfettered pillage.

    Trump, who has no inclination or ability to govern, has handed the machinery of government over to the bankers, corporate executives, right-wing think tanks, intelligence chiefs and generals. They are eradicating the few regulations and laws that inhibited a naked kleptocracy. They are dynamiting the institutions, including the State Department, that served interests other than corporate profit and are stacking the courts with right-wing, corporate-controlled ideologues. Trump provides the daily entertainment; the elites handle the business of looting, exploiting and destroying.

    One could also argue that the globalist agenda was/is a global scale movement towards global kleptocracy. Just a thought...

    Agreed, the elder Bush's "new world order" is indicative of the world elite (headed by the U.S.) kleptocracy.

    True but it is just a slogan. As long as it doesn't interfere with the global elite's global kleptocracy behind the scene, MAGA will continue to be the Trump slogan.

    People aren't as stupid as the people who write this trash assume. The people who voted, voted against a globalist candidate with a dirty history of exactly what the author is describing .

    Right, they thought Trump would be different than Hillary and the rest of the elite. As the author suggests, Trump has capitulated to the corporate and militaristic elite. The people also thought Obama would be different and not continue our perpetual war foreign policy, they were wrong about him also. Presidents are essentially figureheads for the elite in this society.

    That's so clever. Hats off to the genius who invented calling everyone they disagree a moron. I bet they were heroes on their debate team.
