Will you vote by your will or by the will of others?
My experience observing politics has led me to believe that the
candidates most favored by the media are those approved by established
political interests. As a result, seeing the media fawn over
Chris Christie as if they were already prepared to crown him, if only
he would delight them by entering the presidential race, gave me reason
to pause and wonder why. After he publicly declined to enter, I
searched the web to solve the mystery, until the following clip from a
news article dated Friday, September 23, 20111
During the past few weeks,
several leading Republican donors and fundraisers have been urging the
popular Republican governor to reconsider his decision not to run and
to enter the GOP primary.
These Christie supporters note that significant GOP support has
remained on the sidelines of the primary fight. Many leading
fundraisers have yet to commit to any current primary contender,
including frontrunners Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.
Newsmax has learned that the effort to draft Christie culminated in a
hush-hush powwow held in the past week with Christie and several
notable Republican billionaires.
Odd isn't it, that he refused the crown? With public sentiment
rising to put those who impoverished our country to the guillotine,
perhaps he was the shrewdest after all to refuse for the time to be
anyone's crony. Liberals would cry out against those Republican
billionaires, but their liberal media was as eager to crown Christie as
any or more. Politics at this level can only be properly
understood with money-colored glasses, rose colored ones will not
Remember, that in the 2008 election cycle, liberals George Soros and
the wife of Senator Kerry contributed to the campaign of John McCain,
and the recent revelation that conservative billionaire Rupert Murdoch
contributed to an Obama campaign that alleged not to have received any
funding from big money sources! (I appreciate Rupert's help with
the conservative cause, but facts are facts.) Money interests
have money priorities, ideology is a secondary concern. Aside
from shared money matters, liberal political interests would like to
influence the Republican primary to mitigate their own interests, all
the more if they believe their man is already a lame duck. Did
you notice how liberal debate moderators sought to draw the Republican
candidates into a quarrel or into misspeaking themselves to possibly
offend undecided voters? (It is probably well that they are
tested this way, as the adversarial process is going to test them
increasingly as the race progresses.) Perhaps they think us mere
spectators, ready to cheer the victors they have prewritten into their
political script, all the more if we can smell the blood.2
How does the 2008 election appear through money-colored glasses?
In my view Hillary was the chosen one. After all, the liberal
media began promoting her almost before the results of the last
election were in. Bill Clinton then worked
fervor with Rahm Emanuel's help and George Soros' money to steal back
Congress for the Democrats in 2006.3
desperation that pushed the limits of his
anger when any obstacle seemed to frustrate. There were so many
loose ends to resolve for him and his benefactors, and Hillary had told
him publicly in her Soprano's spoof that she would take care of
In that context, the matters
to be resolved for him were not
trifles. There were other factors that could not be scripted
however. The machinations to gain power had created enough voter
dissatisfaction with both parties that the viability of a third party
candidate became very real. Conservatives were considering the
Constitutional party and others, liberals the Green party. Money
interests had vested all their interests in the two established
parties; they could not assure themselves that a third party president
would pull their way. In order to keep voters on track with their
two parties, a spoiler would have to be written into their
script. Enter Barack Obama, a man radical enough to scare
the stray conservatives back to the Republican party and different
enough to keep any disenchanted liberals in the Democratic fold.
Things would have gone well enough but Barack perhaps was not one to
follow the script. When it would seem that Hillary would get the
nomination, Barack played his own card. On the basis of
contacts he had with leaders of the New Black Panther movement he
rallied with in Georgia, he threatened to roust the rabble if the
Democratic superdelegates did not swing his way. Fear of domestic
troubles sufficient to harm the economic fortunes of the mighty then
required the script to be rewritten followed by a peace offering to
appease one suspected not entirely with their system to raise his
million dollars. What a mess! What a twisted way to govern!
My interest here is that you see past the subterfuge and discover the
candidates that serve the voter's interest rather than those that hold
or seek to hold power with a corrupt association. Perhaps it
speaks well of candidates if it genuinely appears that they are
rejected by established political interests.
