A long-con: A con-job that requires a certain amount of effort and as a namesake, is usually in it for the long haul.
I don't know about you, but I don't buy everything I see on the news or the internet. Most of the time reports are carefully crafted to fit a particular narrative and to play on the emotional responses and sensitivities of those reading or listening to them.
But what I've learned after a crazy week of the US elections is: things may not be quite as they seem.
Fight the system! Drain the swamp!
Many people believed a vote for Trump meant fighting the establishment. That's certainly what he encouraged the people to think. He went on about 'Crooked Hillary' and the rigging and deception of the electoral system.
He was right, voter fraud was rampant on election day, brought out by tweets hashtagging #voterfraud. He was also right about Clinton's criminal activity that was largely brought to light by Assange and WikiLeaks.
However, the media narrative, which was heavily skewed in Clinton's favour, did the job in creating an Us VS Them mentality between Trump supporters and Clinton supporters. The mainstream media showing an obvious Clinton bias only succeeded to enrage the Republican Right, wanting fairness and unbiased news sources.
Now this election has caused a major rift right down America, and it may have all been part of the plan, a con by Trump and his globalist elites. And what's the endgame? The stock market crash, order out of chaos? Whatever it is, I don't believe it's making America great again. I've learned not to take everything at face value.
Putting a professional liar in the White House
Everyone seems to be missing the obvious. Trump is more of a professional con-man than a businessman. His business smarts usually boil down to doing the dirty and lying about his dubious doings. And he's hardly the true nationalist he claims to be, since he makes a profit from offshore investments and labour.
As Gail Collins (for the New York Times) said;
"[Trump] makes stuff up all the time, but is either incapable of realising that he's telling a lie, or constitutionally unable to take blame for being untruthful."
The narrative that Obama and Clinton wanted us to believe was that Trump was an outsider, 'unqualified to be president' and not part of this elite. Trump continually claimed that he was doing everything on his own initiative and finances, exposing the corruption of Washington DC.
I wanted to believe that myself. Except there are some suspicious things about Trump that make me think he was playing everyone all along, and now he has the presidency he can buddy-buddy with Obama and Clinton and distance himself from the Christian Right that got him into power.
Some suspicious things are:
- His constant use of 666 hand-symbols when he talks. That is not a natural gesture. I couldn't help but notice the way he punctuated the end of his acceptance speech with three big 666 hand gestures.
- His Trump coat of arms has the Illuminati/Freemason symbol, the double headed phoenix, on it.
- Trump's ties to the Jewish 'elite' through his son-in-law Jared Kushner. He was accused during his campaign of being 'anti-Semitic' by exposing the Jewish big bankers funding Clinton. Ironically, his funds seem to come from a similar crowd.
- The 1998 People Magazine quote where Trump said plainly that he'd run as a Republican if running for President because "They're the dumbest group of voters in the country" who "believe anything on Fox news."
It would be so simple: orchestrate the right rhetoric and fool everyone. Spoon-feed the media and stick to the established rhetoric.
Honest Trump or deceptive schemer?
I'm not saying that Trump doesn't want to be President. That's not part of this 'long con'. But I'm saying that he is more in line with the globalist elite than he has pretended to be and as for his opinion on the issues of the Christian Right, that may have been largely faked too.
Time will tell, if he even makes it into his first term as President without any of the mouth-foaming Democrats assassinating him, as many have vowed to do.
So did America elect a fraud? It would certainly be easier for some people to swallow than the list of other things he's currently being accused of: sexism, racism, rape, homophobia and in general 'hate'.
Maybe if you take a careful look at the Trump legacy, you'll find that it is not as clear cut as the media narratives want us to believe.
