How Trump, The Mobsta, Rose to Dominate America

What’s sad is America’s media knew about Trump’s mobside connections, well-described in news and gossip columns dating back decades. America’s media and the Clinton Campaign, which wanted Trump as her easy-to-defeat opponent, share a very deep blame for the misery nearly all of us feel today as, more and more, we realize we’ve got a mobster with a police-state mentality as our president.

Excerpt From Politico Magazine

by Gabriel Debenedetti — November 7, 2016

>>>…. So to take Bush down, Clinton’s team drew up a plan to pump Trump up. Shortly after her kickoff, top aides organized a strategy call, whose agenda included a memo to the Democratic National Committee: “This memo is intended to outline the strategy and goals a potential Hillary Clinton presidential campaign would have regarding the 2016 Republican presidential field,” it read.

“The variety of candidates is a positive here, and many of the lesser known can serve as a cudgel to move the more established candidates further to the right. In this scenario, we don’t want to marginalize the more extreme candidates, but make them more ‘Pied Piper’ candidates who actually represent the mainstream of the Republican Party,” read the memo.

“Pied Piper candidates include, but aren’t limited to:
• Ted Cruz
• Donald Trump
• Ben Carson
We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to [take] them seriously.”

While the campaign also kept a close eye on Rubio, monitoring his announcement speech and tightly designing the tweeted responses to his moves, Clinton’s team in Brooklyn was delightedly puzzled by Trump’s shift into the pole position that July after attacking John McCain by declaring, “I like people who weren’t captured.”

Eleven days after those comments about McCain, Clinton aides sought to push the plan even further: An agenda item for top aides’ message planning meeting read, “How do we prevent Bush from bettering himself/how do we maximize Trump and others?”

They wouldn’t have to work very hard at it though; the debates were the beginning of the end for the candidate Clinton’s team always thought she would face on Election Day. The day after the first debate in August, Clinton confidante Neera Tanden emailed Podesta her analysis: “Bush sucked. I’m glad Hillary is obsessed with the one candidate who would be easiest to beat :) Besides Trump, of course.”

“Just like everybody, I thought this was a Bush against a Clinton, that’s all it was going to be,” said former Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle. “When I saw the first set of debates, I would turn them on in an entertainment mode to see what Donald’s going to say today. It was funny.”

Clinton aides finally started to see Trump as more than a tool to destroy Bush. In fact, Mook took him so seriously that his team’s internal, if informal, guidance was to hold fire on Trump during the primary and resist the urge to distribute any of the opposition research the Democrats were scrambling to amass against him. That hoarding plan remained in place deep into 2016 as some senior aides stayed convinced that a race against Trump would be a dream for Clinton, but as others kept insisting on tweaking the long-term plans against Rubio and Cruz — convinced the GOP would ultimately coalesce around the Floridian….<<<

True to the Clinton plan to meddle (forget about the Russians!) with the Republican race, Trump, Carson and Cruz got lotsa media attention? A reasonable observer might ask: Why is a brain surgeon and a tv celebrity getting so much more attention than the son of a president/brother of a president/governor of large-state Florida? Oh, but for the wonder of “pied pipers!”

This chart shows the number of times a candidate’s full name appeared in the top 25 online news sources, as a percentage of all mentions, for October to December of 2015

The below NYT chart is interesting and telling in all kinds of ways. Most notably is how the media treated Trump and, secondarily, Clinton. But what’s really intriguing about the below chart is how Carson, with single-digit media buys, compares to several others with single- and double-digit buys. This tells us that Carson, mysteriously, is getting way-way more publicity than a brain surgeon should deserve in a race for the US president.

Clinton Campaign Strategy: Defeat Sanders Then Easily Beat Trump

Sanders Was Best Democratic Candidate!

Clearly, especially when viewing the Quinnipiac Polling data, Clinton — full of political controversy and baggage —not only had to defeat Bernie Sanders who erased her 60-point lead to come close to winning, but she also needed a a November general election opponent she could easily defeat. Hello Trump!

First, Sanders:

The Tyndall Report, for 2015, found that Clinton received 121 minutes of campaign coverage on the networks while history-making Sanders received only 20 minutes. This was how the campaign began. The other three Democratic candidates were also barely mentioned. Sanders got a little bit because he began filling stadiums far and wide.

The argument is too strong that Clinton owned the DNC and the DNC, in tune with her political operatives both state and national, rigged the Democratic Primary to her benefit. This very condition caused candidates Webb, Chaffee and O’Malley to drop out while making a rigging allegation. Without delving into the specifics of multiple rigging allegations, let’s assume it’s true. So Sanders, despite an incredible history-making campaign supported by small donors only, got edged out.

Second, Trump:

Trump never should have won the nomination. The only reason why he did is the Clinton Campaign influenced the media to glorify him, Carson and Cruz during the early primary phase. Normally, when a candidate announces for president the media pounces on their background and qualifications. And there was so much there concerning Trump, what with deep mob ties and sexual peccadilloes, large and small. Trump should have been embarrassed out of the race before, during and shortly after he made his announcement.

Instead, he got a free ride as a “pied piper!” Because he was a tv celebrity and had been in the limelight his whole life he knew how to coast on the pied piper status and fellow pipers Carson and Cruz could not compete.

Not only did Trump get glorified media attention, but the press— in collusion with Clinton’s high-powered connections — left out enough of the fleas and worms about him to enable him to break from of the GOP pack and win the nomination. When it came out that Trump has posed as his own imposter publicist (John Miller and John Barron), the media treated it as a joke instead of a serious issue of character. But here’s a very great example of an incident that didn’t get widely reported:

Some of us warned if Hillary Clinton won the nomination Trump, posing as a political outsider, would defeat her and her lack of political coat-tails would enable the GOPwingers to win Congress and state governor (-33) and legislative seats (-32 legislatures). Sanders, with very strong appeal to Independent voters would have returned the power of government to the Democrats.

Sadly, machine politics prevailed over people politics and we all got clobbered! [NOTE: winning the popular vote due to California (6th largest economy in the world) leaves no position for bragging.]

Mobster Sworn-in as The 45th US President

So now we’re stuck with what we’ve got. Our wars are expanding, the dangers with Russia are perilously increasing and more and more, domestically, we become a police state sporting a prison society (12% of all Americans have felony convictions!) … and a mob man is at the top!

Below, is concrete evidence that Trump’s ascension could have been avoided had America’s monopolized media done its job and properly vetted him before, during and after he announced. Notice closely the dates on all of the below-referenced articles. Almost all were written after Trump was about to gain the GOP nomination, or after he defeated Clinton’s 1.2 billion dollar campaign.

The Media Blew It!

The whole 2016 election reminds me a lot of the 1919 Chicago Black Sox when the heavily-favored Sox threw the World Series to the Cincinnati Reds. The Fix was on and the Sox were down 4 to 1 in a 9-game series. But they players hadn’t been paid so they went back to their championship performance winning the next two games. At this point, as the legend goes, the player families were then threatened and they lost the next one to lose the series 5 to 3.

Why I’m reminded of this? Because the Clinton Campaign and the media realized what they had created by their error of boosting Trump’s standing. When they tried to repair the damage and really slam, him, it was too late. The electorate wanted an “outsider” and Trump was campaigning masquerading as one.

Voters didn’t want two Bushes and two Clintons in four of five presidencies. Had Clinton been elected in 2016 and won re-election in 2020 America would have seen a Bush or a Clinton at the top of 10 of 11 presidential administrations. That’s not what voters wanted!

The big difference between Clinton’s loss to Trump and the aptly-named 1919 Chicago Black Sox? The Black Sox didn’t have a Russiagate to cover their tracks. Note that Russiagate has inhibited a full investigation of the 2016 presidential election, and Clinton and the media got off the hook. The other big difference is the players on the Chicago team got caught cold, barred from baseball and the 1919 gambling mobsters were indicted and convicted.

In 2016? The mob won and the DC Swamp stinks more than ever!

There’s only one solution to this mess:
