Last week Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said it “looks like” another Iranian Green Revolution is taking shape right here in the States. He said everything looks like what happened back then in 2009 when Hillary Clinton tried to get a US puppet, Mir Hossein Mousavi, elected in the Iranian presidential election but he lost by a landslide so she tried a color revolution instead. Mr. Dorsey seems to think the social media trolls are at it again, though he doesn’t actually call them trolls or mention the fact that Iran was a color revolution.
It’s still a good question, isn’t it?
Are we looking at the birth of a color revolution here in the States?
I think it is safe too say a number of the masters of the universe were displeased with the outcome of this past year’s presidential election. Not all of them perhaps and some have certainly taken a more “wait and see” approach since The Donald seems to be cowing in the face of pressure being applied to him and his administration, that goes without saying.
But there are factions that want him, Bannon, sleepy-eyed Jane and Miller out of the Oval Office in the worst of ways and they seem to be pretty dedicated to that end result in spite of the fact that Trump is becoming more bullish on Russia, toeing the line on Iran and bombing places like Yemen, Iraq and Syria with impunity like his “progressive” predecessor did. He’s written and signed executive orders that give Big Banking all the perks they want and all the leeway to set up the next financial crisis they need to completely crush the economy at will and his picks for the various agencies all have one thing in common: they want to see the agencies they head destroyed as soon as possible.
So Trump is giving them everything they want, so far he’s a perfect pick for our next pragmatic dictator in chief… and yet some still seem to want his head on a platter. Why is that?
It could be they don’t trust Trump to stay the course when things get bad and his base turns on him, which is a key qualifier for such work. Nixon strayed from the path so they fixed that and of course, JFK took a decidedly populist/progressive turn away from the profitable Cold War and the CIA so they had to “fix” his administration as well. They set Reagan’s mind right 60 days into his presidency and let Bush 41 run the show from there on out.
Perhaps they are concerned his heart isn’t in the right place and that maybe he worries too much about his “brand” to do what they figure needs to be done in the coming months.
Or maybe this is all just a not-so-subtle warning from the servants of the masters of the universe striking out on their own.
I don’t know. Is this a color revolution taking shape? Did the populist undercurrent of this past election coming from both sides of the fake political divide put the fear of democracy in them? Did we really “vote the wrong way” or was Trump the Manchurian Candidate all along?
Was this past election like what I suggested a year ago… a designed catastrophe meant to usher in a new age of unelected technocrat board members to rule over us all? Is this part of the constructive destruction of the tattered paper-thin veil of democracy here in the Shining City on the Hill?
I don’t know. It certainly smells like a color revolution at this point, doesn’t it? What do you think?
