The Economist and Wall Street Journal Slam Trump

The Economist, which is owned by the Rothschild family (seriously, look it up), which has been preaching the doctrine of free-trade since Richard Cobden’s crusades, who was instrumental in its founding, is against Trump:

“WHEN Jeb Bush announced he was running for president seven months ago the tutting newspaper commentaries almost wrote themselves. With his famous name and war chest of over $100m, whistled up from Bush family benefactors in a matter of months, the former Florida governor was almost as strong a favourite for the Republican ticket as Hillary Clinton, who had made her inaugural campaign speech two days earlier, was for the Democratic one. Bush against Clinton? The prospect made American democracy seem stale and dynastic, rigged on behalf of a tiny political elite, whose members alone had the name recognition and deep pockets required to win its overpriced elections. …

From William Jennings Bryan and Huey Long to Ross Perot and Pat Buchanan, populists are as much a part of the American political tradition as tirades against Washington. They have typically thrived at a time of anxiety. Bryan and Long were creatures of depressed economies; Mr Perot went to war with free-trade, which many Americans feared, just as the two big parties decided to embrace it; Mr Buchanan stoked the same nativist fires that have given Mr Trump’s candidacy much of its heat. This time the unease seems to be mainly economic, and it is widespread.”

Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal is decrying Trump as “a populist “black swan” over the political economy”:

“Financial analyst and our contributor Donald Luskin has described Donald Trump as a “black swan” over the political economy. He’s referring to an outlier event that few anticipated and whose impact is impossible to predict. As the voting season begins in Iowa, this strikes us as a useful way for Republicans to think about the Trump candidacy. …”

If I were Trump, I would be touting this tonight in Iowa as two of my strongest endorsements. Just look, I would say, I have all the right enemies.

  1. The Wall Street Journal and the Economist – I’ve hated these rags since the early 90s. Remember when the Wall Street Journal had the tradition on July 4th of publishing an editorial stating “Thou Shalt have Open Borders” inviting the entire population of the entire world to immigrate to the USA?

    • Yes, and this fellow is the type of people they welcomed.

      FBI thwarts mass shooting at Milwaukee Masonic center

      A terrorist-style plot intended to kill dozens of people with automatic weapons at a Masonic center in Milwaukee was foiled this week by FBI agents, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.

      Samy Mohamed Hamzeh discussed his plan to attack the center with two others, detailing how they would quickly and quietly kill the first people they saw and then methodically move through the building, “eliminating everyone” they encountered, according to a federal criminal complaint.

      Hamzeh, 23, has been charged with possessing a machine gun and a silencer. Despite indications of an attempted act of terrorism, Hamzeh is not charged with any terrorism counts.

      “We are Muslims, defending Muslim religion, we are on our own, my dear, we have organized our own group,” Hamzeh said, according to the criminal complaint, adding he was confident it would trigger more attacks in the United States. -snip-

      During this meeting, which was recorded and translated from Arabic to English, Hamzeh, according to the complaint, said they needed three automatic weapons, each with a silencer, to launch the attack.

      According to the complaint:

      They would enter with clothes over their heads, he said. It was important to quietly kill the receptionist, the first person they were likely to see, Hamzeh said.

      “… If she was alone, it is OK, if there were two of them, shoot both of them, do not let the blood show, shoot her from the bottom, two or three shots in her stomach and let her sit on the chair and push her to the front, as if she is sleeping, did you understand?”

      After killing those at the door, one attacker would remain there, Hamzeh said. “…One of us will stay at the door at the entrance and lock the door down, he will be at the main door down, two will get to the lift (elevator) up, they will enter the room, and spray everyone in the room. The one who is standing downstairs will spray anyone he finds. We will shoot them, kill them and get out.”

      Hamzeh said each of them would have to kill everyone around him, “to annihilate everyone, there is no one left, I mean when we go into a room, we will be killing everyone, that’s it, this is our duty.”

      The exit plan was to leave by the stairs and out the door, quietly and calmly. “We leave, as if there is nothing, no running, no panic, just regular walking.”

      • Hmm. Hadn’t heard anything of this, Sam. Also: never heard anything more about the person or persons taken into custody after that fake bomb was found in a lavatory of an airliner that had stopped in East Africa. That, I guess, was a month or so ago. Sometimes I wonder …

  2. No one reads the Wall Street Journal but when ever the Journal needs to tout its circulation, my neighborhood is littered with unwanted copies of that unwanted and unread rag.

  3. It looks like the media is giving a Trump a hard time because he wants to skip one of the debates. Since when was it decided that somebody had to debate dozens of times to become President? Did Eisenhower debate? or Frank Roosevelt? Did Teddy Roosevelt debate? I don’t recall hearing about it if they did. I think Nixon ran for President twice after the disaster of the debates with Kennedy, and he never again debated. If Trump wants to tell them to buzz off, more power to him..

  4. This made me happy today:

    Libertarian YouTuber Stefan Molyneaux broached the subject of a “break up” of whites and non-whites, what would better be called Partition.

    This is part and parcel of the collapse / evolution of Libertariansim as more and more people accept that liberty and human rights have only ever existed as a consequence of the white man’s sword, spear, or gun.

  5. Remember when the Economist used to be decent? Fox News owner also owns the Walls Street Journal. They are both for Open Borders.

    Trump is for sensible immigration and enforcing the laws. They are against Trump.

    Vote Trump, make America great again by closing those damn borders to illegals.

  6. “The Economist and Wall Street Journal decry Trump’s populism”

    That’s nice. I haven’t cracked a WSJ since 1975, and the Economist? Occasional reading in a doctor’s office.

    Point? In a number of polls, TRUMP STILL WON, at some points by 57%, when he WASN’T THERE, in Iowa, last night!!!

    Trump, 2016.
    GOD Wills it.

    WSJ? They can go to Hell.
