The below is an extract from an interview done this week by John Pilger with Julian Assange. With a deep sense of foreboding for what it will bring and for the continuance of the corrupt US establishment, I do suspect that he is right. Wishful thinking is not a strategy…
He (Assange) said: “Trump would not be permitted to win. Because he has had every establishment off his side. Trump does not have one establishment
“Banks, intelligence, arms companies, foreign money etc., is all united behind Hillary Clinton, and the media as well.
“Media owners and even journalists themselves.”
People get the government that they deserve. The subject of Gold will not be raised in Washington while Clinton is president. In four years it will likely be too late.
More than any other mistake that America has made, and there have been many, the election of Hillary Clinton to the presidency will mark the end of the era of US exceptionalism.
We must still be allowed the luxury of wishful thinking, but it seems that history will mark that point as November 8th, 2016.
