Trump proves elections don't matter after all since US is still in firm grip of the bloody, US taxpayer funded, endless war industry. Media that bashed Trump 24/7 suddenly loved him when he bombed Syria. Goldman Sachs and Wall St. more in control than ever-Mike Krieger

6/27/17, "The Most Dangerous Fake News Of All Is Peddled By The Corporate Media," by Mike Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg blog, via Zero Hedge 

"While alternative media did indeed play a monumental role in the election of Donald Trump, how much really changed when it comes to the true power centers?

Not much, not much at all. Goldman Sachs and Wall Street are more in control than ever before, and neocons and other assorted interventionists seem to be running foreign policy. 

All of this reminds me of the famous saying, “if voting made any difference, they’d make it illegal.” Indeed, the time has come for all of us to own up to the very real and present danger of corporate media, which seemingly exists to provide public relations for oligarchs and the foreign policy establishment. Not that this should be surprising, you’d have to be the most naive creature on earth to think newspapers owned by billionaires are going to tell the public the truth.... 

Most major newspapers could barely catch their breath from demonizing Trump during his first three months, yet suddenly saw him as a heroic figure as soon as he lobbed a few bombs at Assad.

This is like giving a puppy a treat for peeing on a wee wee pad. The corporate press is literally training Trump to wage as much imperial war as possible. It’s crucial to understand that Trump, or any other administration really, can only do so much on the interventionist war front as the corporate press permits and pushes. Unfortunately, the corporate press is always pushing for war."...image from Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,
