Deep State, bankers, corporations, and politicians combine to “Keep America Just Like It Is Now”

“Everyone is entitled to their opinion.”

National Security Council (NSC) Advisor Herb Ray McMaster apparently disagrees with that adage, and fired staffer Rich Higgins for spilling the beans on the Deep State of corporate cronies, intellectual phonies and political hacks.

Higgins served NSC’s strategic-planning office as director for strategic planning. He was fired on July 21.

The memo, written near the end of May, said the mindset within the White House is inadequate to the threat:

This is not politics as usual but rather political warfare at an unprecedented level that is openly engaged in the direct targeting of a seated president through manipulation of the news cycle. It must be recognized on its own terms so that immediate action can be taken.

Earlier this year, Higgins had pushed to declassify documents dealing with radical Islam and Iran, including Presidential Study Directive 11, produced by the Obama administration before the Arab Spring, that outlined unrest throughout the Middle East, according to a report in The Atlantic.

McMaster also recently fired Derek Harvey, senior director for the NSC Middle East strategy. Before removal, Harvey produced a list of NSC holdovers from the Obama Administration and presented it to McMaster, who declined to fire them, the report said.

This past week, McMaster was touted by Sen. John McCain, many mass media pundits, Democrat Party leadership and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Continue reading →

Just like the many sharks swimming in Congress, China’s newest star lawyers simply have no heart

LawyerCartoonSharks

If our Congress ever gets back in session, forty percent of the members will have passed the Bar – far fewer than a hundred years ago, when nearly 80 percent of our legislators were lawyers.

And the good news is that soon there may be even fewer lawyers in Congress, eventually none, because the legal “profession” is headed to extinction.

Don’t we need a nearly inebriated buffoon to charge us $600 an hour to fight a traffic ticket, a slick con man to “help” us get swindled, or maybe just the assistance of a voracious ambulance chaser, who jacks up our insurance rates with outlandish settlements?

For example, we now have 10,000 immigration lawyers in the United States (probably 90% of the world’s lawyers practicing in this field), partially because the U.S. has the most complex set of immigration laws and the largest immigration bureaucracy of any country. Complex always means higher fees for attorneys.

Incredibly, the big law firms are now even recruiting H-1B Visa candidates from places like Australia to swell their ranks even more.

Hope is on the way. Imagine very few lawyers in America, saving us all a fortune in hot air and cold cash. Continue reading →

Donald Trump will easily win the Wall Street vote!

President Donald Trump in February 2016:

“I know the guys at Goldman Sachs. They have total, total control over him (Ted Cruz). Just like they have total control over Hillary Clinton.”

Times have changed and there are now suggestions to rename the “East Wing” to “Hedge Fund Headquarters.”

Or more accurately – “GS Village in the Capitol.” This is the place where old bean counters and masters of economic disaster gather to decide how much financial misery the “little people” will endure without revolting.

A good and quick example is Anthony Scaramucci, He worked at Goldman Sachs‘s Investment Banking, Equities, and Private Wealth Management divisions from 1989 to 1996. Flamboyant, like his fictional counterpart, he lasted ten days before Trump replaced him with a retired general. The president’s picks for his cabinet tend to be either Wall Street bankers or multi-star generals. Guns and promises of rose gardens?

But GS and the financial class are hardly left without influence, despite Continue reading →
