At the beginning of the year, I predicted a “February Surprise” whereby Trump would stop dominating the media polls and start losing ground in the real polls. When Trump skipped the Iowa debate last week, I thought maybe the February Surprise came a few days early and that this might be the turning point for Trump. That is one of the reasons I thought Cruz would take Iowa and he did. I don’t think this means Cruz will get the nomination. I don’t think he will.

I have never thought that Cruz or Trump were going to go all the way, which is why it doesn’t matter that Trump could be easily discredited on many levels or that Cruz has a Canadian birth certificate which means, by our rules, that he’s a natural born citizen of Canada. (If natural citizenship went to parentage, Rubio would not be a natural citizen of the US as his parents were not US citizens when he was born here, so take your pick–either Cruz and Obama are eligible no matter where they were born, or Rubio is eligible despite his parentage, but you can’t have both.)

I have always thought that all the primary hype was for ratings and also to give the appearance of a tooth and nail fight between the grassroots and the establishment in both parties when in reality the establishment is in total control and we will have a race between Hillary and JEB or Rubio (or maybe both if Rubio is JEB’s running mate.)

Hour 1

Hour 2

OMGosh…”Mr. McMahon” is a REAL billionaire! (Or at least he may come close.) I’m still not sure about Trump though…The book TrumpNation: The Art of Being The Donald calls into question the entire Trump story. Trump challenged the author in court and ultimately withdrew the suit after the writing was on the wall. I just ordered this book and can’t wait to read it!

I continue to call into question why the media doesn’t expose the content of this embarrassing book or emphasize the Trump wrestling persona. Supposedly Trump and Fox are at war–if that were true, Fox would most likely simply ignore Trump instead of giving him free publicity, and if not, certainly they would attempt to discredit him by playing this stuff on the air instead of taking him so seriously.

My apologies to the wrestling fans out there who heard my mistake, but I do think it’s excusable for thinking Mr. McMahon was “a fake billionaire” after watching these videos… (start around 4:40)

Here’s where Trump shaves McMahon’s head….

Don’t forget to check out my quotes from Carroll Quigley, Winston Churchill, David Rockefeller, Arnold Toynbee and others for more on the power elite.

    I’m finally getting around to looking at this post. I haven’t heard Monica’s show yet nor the podcasts. And about me: I have never watched so-called professional wrestling, nor have I ever watched Trump’s TV show, Apprentice. It’s all garbage in my opinion. Perhaps Monica is right with her insight into all this. Was Trump injected into the presidential race to juice the ratings and line the media’s pockets? Or is Trump a true maverick who plays the system, but is a patriot at heart? Certainly his fame among some of the people has played to his advantage. Again, this so-called wrestling and Apprentice stuff totally turns me off and disgusts me. But we should find out soon!with her insight into all this.

    Ron Paul was unrealistic because his platform was based on cerebral thought and critical thinking. A Trump type delivery with a Ron Paul platform would be realistic and effective. People’s eyes glaze over with faster and faster information delivery that comes in smaller and smaller packages. Winning and election has little to do with solutions, but more to do with delivery of emotionally charged illustrations of problems. This is further exacerbated by the ongoing efforts to steer net dialogue the way news networks steer (when ratings are based on confirmation of “I hate the other team [dem/rep]”) Trump has evaded this dynamic simply because of the most embedded root in the process: money. He makes the networks too much money. They can’t close pandora’s box after they thought it would be a fun ratings week of mocking his immigration statements. Perhaps the greater rational is that they feel comfortable in being able to shut it down after over-exposure and October surprise type stuff. A large open door to shape the set up; and psychological trends. But the current flow of cash is just too much to resist. Ron Paul simply didn’t play this game, nor could he. A necessary evil in the process. That is why he was unrealistic. An utterly principled genius. A blessing and a curse.
