What’s it all about, Alfie?

This election is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.  It’s not the end, or the beginning, of anything.  It’s a debasement of politics, a stain on our democratic system of government, and will be remembered as the low point in the corruption of our culture.  Both candidates are roundly despised by a majority of voters, and the winner will be the one who is loathed the least.  A hell of a way to run a country, but just what the Media Hive had planned all along.  What we’ve got is what they wanted.

So Obama gets a third term, to do what?  Clean up the messes he made in his first two?  Clinton has no mandate to do anything.  She’ll only get elected because she’s not Donald Trump.  She’ll have no political honeymoon, and, unless the Democrats win the House, no accomplishments.  She and her family are so thoroughly corrupt that, once the election is over, parts of the media will turn against her.

This is exactly what happened in 1964.  Lyndon Johnson was about to be exposed by major national media as the most corrupt member of Congress.  The research had been done, the articles written.  This is all detailed in Robert Caro’s brilliant multi-volume biography.  Then Kennedy was assassinated, and all the stories were buried.  They had wanted to force him off the Democratic ticket in 1964, but when he became the  President, and the nominee, everything was put on hold.  He had to beat the Republican, so hands off.

After he was elected, and the debacle of Vietnam unfolded, the old stories, buried in 1963, started to resurface.  The scale of Lyndon Johnson’s corruption was not surpassed until Bill Clinton took office.  In 1968 Johnson knew the press had him by the balls, and he pulled out.

If Clinton is elected she will not run for a second term, in my opinion, because once she wins this election, parts of the press will turn on her.   Nobody really likes her, and everyone knows she’s a greedy shrew.  They’ll take her out just like they took out LBJ.  They’ve got a lot to work with.

So we’ll have a fresh face to deal with in 2020, and I don’t mean the idiot Kaine.  They’ll come up with somebody else to run for Obama’s fourth term, won’t they?.  They can’t be dumb enough to go with Kaine, could they?  And 2020, so I’ve read, is the year when demographics overwhelms the Republican coalition.  Very smart people have got it all figured out.  Demographics is destiny.

These people are crazy.  What do you think is going to happen in, and to, this country in the next four years?  Will our problems be solved, or will they get worse?  What will  Clinton do that Obama couldn’t?  Her term will be a political and economic disaster.   She’ll have no agenda, no mandate to lead, and no idea of what to do.  The Fed has got to start raising interest rates, they have no choice.  They’ve put it off as long as they can, so the market crash comes after the election, and can’t be blamed on Obama..

You don’t need to be a prophet to see what’s coming, and none of it’s good.  And you’re telling me that the Democrat is going to win in 2020 because of demographics?  Go back to your algorithms and quit trying to pretend that you know anything about politics.

So in the history books the election of 2016 won’t make a footnote.  It’s the least consequential election of my lifetime.  And I can’t wait for it to be over.

It’s just a prelude.
