Speaking of inability to learn from mistakes...I read today that Public Editor Arthur Sulzberger, the owner of the NYT apologized in a way for all the mistakes of the "newspaper of record" during the campaign. But in his soft-shoe dance of an apology letter....he still insists that the paper was "fair to both candidates". Didn't I read an editorial in the NYT during the campaign where the editorial staff said they could not report on Donald Trump "fairly" because he was not a "real" candidate...or some such. The fact of the matter is...one of the great scandals emerging in the aftermath of the Trump victory is the collusion between the Hillary Campaign Camp and the Main$tream Media. There was virtually NO media entity on Trump's side. And yet he won. The only entity that Trump is beholden to is the Internet alternative community...who almost unanimously supported him.
The BBC, which was pulling North American media (including the CBC) puppet strings from across the pond was recently forced to do a major on-camera "self reflection" post mortem on their Newsnight program. Assembled for the program were all the big "presenters"....many of them alluded to voter "anti-Semitism" as lying behind Hillary's defeat. Talk about not seeing the forest for the trees!
As a reviewer of the Newsnight program notes:
In the end one could not help noticing one interesting if rather awkward fact about that edition of BBC Newsnight. The editor, two out of three of the main presenters, and all seven of the main interviewees in Washington and London were Jewish. Not bad for a group said to represent less than 0.4% of the British population......
But given that self-awareness is one area where the elites are notably deficient, it might be s good idea to remind them of the massive Jewish overrepresentation on display here. This is one very privileged group indeed. Overrepresented and overprivileged, one might say.
So, my point is...they can take the vote any way they want...they can accept responsibility for the loss...they can blame others...they can blame anti-Semitism...whatever. In the end, the big question going forward is whether or not they have the capacity to accept the loss in a peaceful manner for the sake of the country and humanity. Early indications are that they cannot. And this is the biggest threat on the horizon. Ron Paul, in his recent interview with Peter Lavalle on RT warned everyone about the Deep State with their strategies of False Flags, assassinations and other forms of terrorism as a possible response of the thwarted.
Just yesterday, in the ongoing "colour revolution" paid for protests going on around the country...a gunman fired at a protester walking across a bridge in Portland Oregon. This is the fear I have. The next escalation from the paid-for and bussed-in demonstrators is the "sniper attacks" on both sides. Not living in the cities where the demonstrations are taking place, I have no way of knowing how popular these protests are with the ordinary people. Because I only see them through the purple tinted and magnified lens of the Main$tream media...they appear to be big and popular revolts!
Hopefully, they are isolated and will soon fizzle out. But my thoughts keep returning to that scene, midway through the campaign, where Hillary was described as screeching at her black assistant after a difficult TV interview, where she was asked some unscripted questions. Apparently one of the things she screeched were words to the effect: "If you don't fix this...all our heads will be in the noose!" That's a pretty powerful motivator for someone who finally finds themselves cornered.
