Less Popular Than Syphilis

RANCHO SANTANA, Nicaragua – We’re traveling home to the U.S. from our recent meeting with members of our family wealth advisory, Bonner & Partners Family Office. So, we’ll make this short.

The Dow sold off again on Monday. At midday, it was down nearly 400 points. Then it recovered to end down only 178 points – or about 1%. As we’ve been warning, this market is extremely vulnerable. Watch out.

 

hilary-630Leftist war-harpy Hillary Clinton – the candidate of the country’s assembled cronies and zombies, in short, the prototypical Deep State representative. We feel reminded of an aged Cersei Lannister every time we contemplate Ms.“best cattle futures trader in the world” (more). Whatever you do America, please refrain from making this harridan your president. Nothing could possibly be worse. Luckily, even syphilis is more popular than Hillary among young voters. This fills us with hope.

Meanwhile… who’s the crony? Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton is the Deep State’s top choice for president.  She has already received $21 million from Wall Street for her campaign. That’s 280 times more than Bernie Sanders.

This is why Sanders and Donald Trump are doing so well in the polls. People are catching on to how the system works. They know they are being taken for fools. According to a recent CNN poll, 69% of Americans are either “very angry” or “somewhat angry” about “the way things are going” in the U.S.

And according to a recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, the same percentage – 69% – are angry because the U.S. political system “seems to only be working for the insiders with money and power, like those on Wall Street or in Washington.” Among young voters, according to a well-watched video, “syphilis is more popular than Hillary.

 
But Clinton is the crony favorite, supported by Wall Street and the Pentagon. In the old days, the conservatives believed the U.S. government was the devil at home and an angel abroad. The liberals believed the government was an angel at home and a devil overseas. Hillary believes that government always wears wings – at home and abroad.

The Rise of the Outsiders

The young and the plain folk know it isn’t so. They put on uniforms. They salute the flag. They do their military service. They pay their taxes. But they know something is wrong.

They don’t necessarily understand how the system works. But they know it is rigged against them. So, they turn to outsiders Trump and Sanders. The Washington Examiner reports:

 

“In a nearly one-hour speech, Trump railed against pharmaceutical companies. He railed against oil companies. And insurance companies. And defense contractors. And he set himself against a political system that he said allows big-money corporate “bloodsuckers” to control the government with campaign contributions.

“Whether it’s the insurance companies, or the drug companies, or the oil companies, it’s all the same thing,” Trump said. “We’re never going to get our country back if we keep doing this.”

 

Trump-SandersBernie and the Donald – you only have to follow mainstream media reportage on these two to realize that they are positively scaring the cr*p out of the establishment. Yes, many of their policies are absolutely hair-raising nonsense…but both also have a handful of praiseworthy ideas, which incidentally are precisely the kind of things that are held to be “beyond debate” by the ruling crony elite.

As former Washington insider turned Deep State whistleblower Mike Lofgren put it in the January issue of Bonner & Partners Investor Network:

 

“What Trump and Sanders have in common is they are not your typical politicians. And don’t think that doesn’t scare the daylights out of the political establishment.”

Dear Readers!

You may have noticed that our so-called “semiannual” funding drive, which started sometime in the summer if memory serves, has seamlessly segued into the winter. In fact, the year is almost over! We assure you this is not merely evidence of our chutzpa; rather, it is indicative of the fact that ad income still needs to be supplemented in order to support upkeep of the site. Naturally, the traditional benefits that can be spontaneously triggered by donations to this site remain operative regardless of the season - ranging from a boost to general well-being/happiness (inter alia featuring improved sleep & appetite), children including you in their songs, up to the likely allotment of privileges in the afterlife, etc., etc., but the Christmas season is probably an especially propitious time to cross our palms with silver. A special thank you to all readers who have already chipped in, your generosity is greatly appreciated. Regardless of that, we are honored by everybody's readership and hope we have managed to add a little value to your life.

One Response to “The Deep State’s Top Choice for President Is…”

  • Unless it is the super strain. You can go to the doctor and get a shot to get rid of syphilis, in a short period of time and maybe have some enjoyment getting it. Sans an early death, we would be stuck with Hillary for 4 years. BTW Bill, how do you get to Argentina, just in case?
