The Ever Flexible Political Victimization Strategy Of The Anti-Establishment Right.


Tweet This ! http://goo.gl/ajd0zt

I recently joined a Face Book Page called I  Love America but it turned out to be a page exclusively for those who are in agreement with the world views of the far right- which I call anti-establishmentarians- because that is what they are. They have a doctrine representing the politcal correct points of view and anyone who differs with this doctrine one iota is labeled a Liberal, a RINO, or a Progressive.





This includes the majority of the Republican Candidates in the primary race. Once so labeled one is identified as someone to whom the collective mind of anti-establishmentarians are instructed not to listen. This includes the majority of candiates opposing the Donald in the Republican primaries. It was easy for the anti-establishmentarians to land upon the Donald as their politcally correct choice for presidential nominee- they had already canceled out most candidates without a listen.

Unlike most Americans - the anti-establishmentarians had only a handful of candidates to choose from- one being Carly Fiorina- the smartest candidate amoung those lacking government expereince, one who articulates well though out solutions rather than campaigning on rhetoric alone. Unlike Trump, Carly is out there taking on Hillary, whom Trump to date has failed to mention as he targets other Republicans. Carly didn't even make it to the anti-establishmentarian's short list.

Ted Cruz got on their list despite his government expereince but Ted Cruz has set himself up as anti-the rest of Congress so he fits into their template. Then there is Carson- a nice man and interesting television pundit with some inspirational things to say but little management experience in either the government or private sector.

Then along came Trump- a multi billionaire and established household name willing to campaign against the entire government establishment- they found their man!  And now all they need to do is apply their standard campaign formula- which scarily ended up the last time around with the anti-establishmentarians campaigning against Romney during the entire election season and saying nary a word about Obama.

One of the elements of the anti-eastablishmentarian campaign strategy is to position themselves and their candidate as being victimized by the establishment:






 A couple of weeks or so ago I was hearing from the anti-establishmentarian drum beat that "they" were going to keep Trump out of the debates- setting up the standard MO that politicizes the anti-establishmentarian's candidate as being wronged by the rest of the US political world (the establishment). Now that Donald Trump is center stage at the debates, the anti-establishmentarians still spin that as being victimized by the big bad establishment- Donald Trump has been put there just in case he screws up!

 It couldn't be that Donald Trump is in the debates and at center stage because the big bad establishment is just playing by the rules in which who ever is in the prime time debate and their positions in the stage line up are determined by poll numbers ! Naw!  Don't listen to her- She's a Liberal- or a Rino- a Progressive ! Listen to us- You are being victimized by the establishment- Listen to us- You are being victimized by The establishhment- Listen to us- You are being victimized by the establishment, Listen....zzzzz- good !

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds. In recent years as past predictions of fiscal disaster following stimulus spending failed to materialize and so the thinking about national debt and deficits has evolved, most noticeably with the development of  Modern Monetary Theory . In the   fall of 2020,  National Affairs  published a story,  Does the Debt Matter ? by Peter Wehner & Ian Tufts. Peter Wehner is vice president and senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and served in the last three Republican administrations. Ian Tufts is a recent g

JECD Group Holds Master Plan Pow Wow for Boothbay Peninsula

The most honest statement to come out of the ringleaders of the Joint Economic Community Development Group in their first workshop program was "none of us are experts on economic development", which in my most humble opinion is evident in the fact that the JECD begins with the premise that economic development can be master minded by central management. The article in the Boothbay Register begins with this paragraph: The Joint Economic Development Committee master plan workshop on Thursday, Oct. 12 discuss findings from stakeholder interviews conducted early last month. The interviews centered around building an overall economic development strategy for Edgecomb, Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor and Southport. Who are the stakeholders?  A search for articles in the Boothbay Register comes up short. Why is the public not told who the stakeholders are. Since the taxpayers of Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor footed the bill for the JECD's consultants, why are they not the stakeh

Why are social impact investors trying so hard to defeat smaller shelters for the homeless?

  "Social Impact” developers in Portland, Maine seek to squelch a referendum for smaller shelters called for by qualified practitioners with concrete experience in the field. A large sign says Vote C to support the Homeless, small handmade sign next to it says Untrue! That sign is paid for by developers who want / Photo by Jess Falero In   the 1970s under Governor Longley , Maine became a centrally managed economy that expanded Maine’s wealth gap and merged, almost seamlessly, the public and private and the non-profit and for-profit economic sectors into one mutually beneficial wealth-concentration & distribution system. Currently, mutually benefitting factions are coming together once again in hopes of building a mega-shelter for the homeless in a Portland, Maine industrial development district. In addition to beds for the homeless, the project will include, dining, and locker facilities, as well as offices and an attached health clinic. The promotion  describes the facility
