    Decent article here with more details of Trump's nuclear policies and the limits of presidential power.

    Well, another narrative of certain branches of right-wing thought at work here. For those people, Marxism and Neoliberalism (formerly known as "international capital" = "Jewish Wall Street") are both seen as first and foremost internationalist/globalist, work and especially international trade being crucial, not caring about "race" and therefore resulting in subversion of the nationalist market/pure racial base of a given Nation.

    Both looking more alike than contradictory, and both attacking the nationalist core beliefs. At least in the minds of those people.

    Nothing new here. A central tenet of National Socialism was that both Marxism and capitalism were Jewish conspiracies.

    Thomas Frank on the liberal elite: https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...how-they-do-it

    The emails currently roiling the US presidential campaign are part of some unknown digital collection amassed by the troublesome Anthony Weiner, but if your purpose is to understand the clique of people who dominate Washington today, the emails that really matter are the ones being slowly released by WikiLeaks from the hacked account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta. They are last week’s scandal in a year running over with scandals, but in truth their significance goes far beyond mere scandal: they are a window into the soul of the Democratic party and into the dreams and thoughts of the class to whom the party answers.

    The class to which I refer is not rising in angry protest; they are by and large pretty satisfied, pretty contented. Nobody takes road trips to exotic West Virginia to see what the members of this class looks like or how they live; on the contrary, they are the ones for whom such stories are written. This bunch doesn’t have to make do with a comb-over TV mountebank for a leader; for this class, the choices are always pretty good, and this year they happen to be excellent.

    They are the comfortable and well-educated mainstay of our modern Democratic party. They are also the grandees of our national media; the architects of our software; the designers of our streets; the high officials of our banking system; the authors of just about every plan to fix social security or fine-tune the Middle East with precision droning. They are, they think, not a class at all but rather the enlightened ones, the people who must be answered to but who need never explain themselves....

Pointing out that these people have a different lifestyle from the people they're trying to help isn't clever, useful or relevant.

    A nicely euphemistic description of the American ruling class.
