How Trump Won the White House

He won because he stuck to a very simple message that resonated with the masses, while Hillary’s message was far from simple or coherent.  Additionally his likability factor was very low. The masses wanted to change and they got it.

The media gave Trump an unfair advantage.

The media began normalizing Trump’s racial bigotry and misogyny well before the election, fawning over his ratings-boosting belligerence to the tune of $3 billion in free press that was fairly impossible to run against. For much of the election season, candidate Trump was allowed to say whatever erroneous thing he wanted without correction, while the flagging media used the Trump show to drive ad dollars to levels the industry hadn’t seen in years. Initially, Trump bathed in this spotlight, telling Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, “I’ve spent zero on advertising,” because the press covered him “a lot, to put it mildly.” He told the New York Times, “When you look at cable television, a lot of the programs are 100 per cent, Trump.” When the press later tried to do its job and Trump complained the media was biased, the only detail he left out was that it was in his favour.

 Clinton was tarnished by perceived corruption for accepting money from Wall Street for her speeches.

Hillary sincerely believes there’s nothing wrong with taking $225k a pop from Wall Street for giving a speech. There’s also no harm in helping out the Clinton Foundation by arranging a State Department meeting or two for its donors. She and Bill are just doing what those around them have been doing since leaving Yale Law School. Becoming super-rich on Wall Street or super powerful in politics launches you into the rarefied world where money and power glide back and forth with little ethical friction. Our political and economic elites dine together, vacation together and share their private planes and estates. If you’re on the money side of the line, you crave political access. If you’re on the political side, you’d like a little spending money—about $10 million a year would do.

Clinton supported trade deals and Trump criticized them.

Once upon a time, trade deals like NAFTA were win-win deals for Democrats as they competed for corporate/Wall Street cash. Since the Republicans were already there, it took Democratic votes to seal the deal. A “yes” vote cost the Democrats very little since unions and working-class voters understood that the Republicans were even worse. Triangulation, the Clintons called it: Please your corporate donors without losing votes.

Hillary, in lockstep with Bill, lobbied wavering Democrats. Drunk on neoliberal Kool-Aid, they argued that more trade between the U.S. and low-wage countries would increase jobs and prosperity for all. Full Story

Is there a ‘shadow government’ working to undermine Donald Trump?

In an article the president has lambasted as “gutless”, the unnamed insider reveals the existence of a secret resistance movement surrounding Donald Trump: “Many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.”

The author suggests the reason for their coming forward is to reassure the public: “Americans should know that there are adults in the room.”

The Times writer addresses the concern directly: “This isn’t the work of the so-called deep state. It’s the work of the steady state.”

Previously a phrase primarily associated with the alt-right and “full moon” conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones – who worries the deep state will one day assassinate President Trump – the notion has migrated to the mainstream since the advent of the Trump presidency.

Mike Lofgren, a former Republican congressional aide, claims to have first coined the term in an essay for BillMoyers.com published in February 2014.

Here, Mr Lofgren anatomised it as “a hybrid association of elements of government and parts of top-level finance and industry that is effectively able to govern the United States without reference to the consent of the governed as expressed through the formal political process.”

ack Goldsmith, a law professor at Harvard University, likewise maintains the deep state is a very real phenomenon and suggests in his essay “Paradoxes of the Deep State” in Can it Happen Here? (2018) that it is the source of damaging leaks against the president, including that which led to the resignation of national security adviser Mike Flynn in February 2017.

“The deep state is not just the intelligence agencies, it is really a way of referring to the career bureaucracy of government,” he said.

“These are officials who sit in powerful positions, who don’t leave when presidents do, who watch presidents come and go, they influence policy, they influence presidents and say: this is what we have always done, this is what we must do, and if you don’t do this, people will die.” Full Story
