The notorious Time magazine article literally bragging about the corruption of the 2020 presidential election reflected how much of a bubble that America’s notoriously crooked political establishment lives in. Reasonable people did not believe the establishment’s bizarre propaganda which demonized de facto Third Party President Donald Trump and his supporters and therefore saw Time’s article for what it was – an admission that every level of the 2020 election was tainted.
The anti-Trump loons had even adopted “By any means necessary” as their slogan, trumpeting their intention to go beyond legal measures in order to install the disastrous career criminal Joe Biden.
It’s become impossible to ignore the way that the corrupt establishment and their corporate media outlets fear populism and obsessively try to demonize it. In a way it’s a replay of the late 1800s when the labor movement was striking and demanding better pay and working conditions. The establishment responded with ugly demonization of working class people’s efforts to survive as something more than peasants, just as they have against populists like Donald Trump.
America’s President Grover Cleveland even went so far as to describe labor activist Eugene Debs as “an enemy of the human race.” That is certainly reminiscent of the over the top rhetoric used today by the Powers That Be to instill the public with feelings of fear and hostility toward popular movements that threaten their privileges.
It’s important to remember that Eugene Debs called himself a socialist back when socialism was largely about fighting the entrenched Big Money interests on behalf of the suffering poor and the working class, not the pseudo-religion it is today, when socialism is all about dictating every aspect of our lives. Debs was demonized by the establishment from around the 1890s through the 1920s, even arrested and left to languish in prison merely for protesting America’s involvement in the First World War of 1914-1918.
Here in the 21st Century, in which the old paradigm of Liberalism vs Conservatism is being replaced by Populism vs Neo-Feudalism, we have seen a Populist like de facto Third Party President Donald Trump become the establishment’s new Eugene Debs – a bogeyman to be propagandized against and shrilly demonized along with his supporters. I’m an Independent voter and, like so many other people, I’ve observed how Trump was the greatest president for the working class and the poor in several decades. He was also the first president in decades to keep America out of any new wars and brought us energy independence.
Here are some excerpts from recent items expressing similar observations on Populism and politics right now. The links are included in the text if readers want to click on them.
THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION IS BASED ON FRAUD AND MEDIA COLLUSION. A nice summary of the Populist view of a regime which has already done untold damage to the working class and the poor. But the wealthy establishment cheers it on.
“IT IS THE OPPOSITE OF DEMOCRACY WHEN A SECRET CABAL OF WEALTHY AND POLITICALLY CONNECTED ELITES CONSPIRE TO MANIPULATE THE RULES AND LAWS OF AN ELECTION IN ORDER TO WIN.” The 2020 election was as tainted as the 1876 and 2000 elections.
A REMINDER THAT TIME MAGAZINE, NOT TRUMP SUPPORTERS, DESCRIBED THE EFFORT AGAINST TRUMP AS A “SECRET CABAL”. Time Magazine, as part of the corporate media, mistakenly thought everyone else would be as thrilled as they were that high-level collusion was used against Trump in 2020. Remember – this particular set of ugly tactics were PRAISED by Time because they saw Trump as the new Eugene Debs/ Populist figure in need of being dealt with.
HOW TRUMP BECAME THE ONLY ONE.
TRUMP, THE PEOPLE’S CANDIDATE.

Why the elites really hate Trump
By Don Herston
President Trump is not a buffoon or a blowhard or an egomaniac, even though his tweets can sometimes make all three descriptions seem accurate. This is certainly the way much of America sees President Trump.
The president demonstrates he’s not a narcissist every time he shows compassion to a child or to a wounded warrior, or to the family of a fallen warrior. His critics never seem to notice his compassion, the sincerity of his concern for others, and how it should make clear that he is not the narcissist he sometimes appears to be.
His strategic decisions have shown that the president is not the buffoon he is judged to be by those who want only to look at his vocabulary and some of his tweets. Since he is not the egomaniac he sometimes appears to be, and he is not the buffoon that he sometimes appears to be, then perhaps he is also not the blowhard that he sometimes appears to be. Certainly, the president does self-promote and say things that might classify him as a blowhard, but if you look at the story of Donald Trump, self-promoting is part of his job, and it has been for a long time. It’s not who he is; it’s what he does for a living.
Donald Trump is a salesman. What he sells is himself and the Trump brand. Bill Gates made his money with computer software, so he might not be too concerned with how people view the name Gates. Donald Trump made his money in hotels and resorts, where it’s important to have a name like Hilton as opposed to a name like Motel 6.
Donald Trump played the role of a loud, bigger than life ringmaster to build the Trump brand. He brags, he exaggerates, and sometimes he tells bald-faced lies. When attacked, he will always respond to the attack in order to protect his brand. Donald Trump is a modern-day P.T. Barnum. This is a role that Donald Trump has played for so long that it’s become part of who he is, but deep down, it’s not who he is. It is merely a role he has played as a salesman.
The character that Donald Trump has become is loathed by a large portion of society to a degree that many of us find hard to understand. They call Trump a bigot, but this is based entirely on their interpretation of some of the things he has said, not on any clear statement of hatred on his part. The president’s critics didn’t interpret any of his pre-presidential statements as bigoted, just as they never interpret as bigoted any statement made by anyone they agree with, no matter how bigoted it may sound. Our interpretation of what someone says is always heavily influenced by our opinion of the person who says it.
Nobody hates anyone this much unless it is personal, and the hatred of President Trump by the elite is very personal. Donald Trump is a caricature of the elite, but he’s not much of an exaggeration. The role Donald Trump plays, the persona he took on to build his business, is almost cartoonish at times, but it is a more honest, a more accurate portrayal of who our elite really are than how they present themselves. Wittingly or unwittingly, Donald Trump mocks the elite.
The elite pretend to be compassionate, but they hated people in fly-over country for years before the people in fly-over country finally started to hate them back. The elite believe themselves to be brilliant, but they turned world production over to a brutal regime in China, creating not only a ruthless superpower, but also an unsustainable world economy where we keep printing and borrowing money to buy goods from the Chinese plantation factories. The elite believe themselves to be honest, but they cannot see their own corruption, or the corruption of their elite friends, and they cannot see the reasonableness of asking for that corruption to be investigated, as in the case of Hunter Biden.
Donald Trump is an intelligent, compassionate though sometimes ruthless businessman who took on a persona to build his business. After our elite ran the country into the ground by their corruption and incompetence, it was Donald Trump who led the revolt against them. Then Donald Trump came into Washington still having the persona he used to build his business, still playing a caricature of society’s elite. This is divine intervention.
When Hollywood actors, or the media and political elite, look at Donald Trump, they see themselves. They may not realize they see themselves, but they do. But unlike President Trump, the elite truly are egomaniacs, and they are blowhards, and they are buffoons.
This is why they hate President Trump so much.
Thanks! I like Heston’s general attitude but I feel he buys into the anti-Trump thinking too much. I reject the premise that anti-Trump fanatics use. After all, if they cared about “buffoonery” or ego or hostility then there’s been plenty from Joe Biden for them to be disgusted with but they haven’t uttered a peep. They trashed Trump unfairly by overreacting to every single thing he said and did, no basis in reality was ever necessary for them. Anti-Trump loons have proven there is absolutely NO good faith aspect to their critcisms of him so Heston should not have played along as if there were.

Another awesome post!
Thank you very much!
You’re very welcome
The Democrats and RINOS are destroying themselves from within. Pelosi has already signaled to Democrats for the need to cheat in the 2022 midterms with her statement that “We can’t let the Republicans gain the majority in Congress.” They will always find some moralistic (but not moral) argument for why cheating is necessary. And, right now, abortion is the carrot they are holding out.
I agree. The Democrats know that the bought and paid-for whores in the Republican Party will be no obstacle. In fact, elected Republicans will spend more time telling their constituents they need to stop dwelling on election fraud and just move on.
