Is Dennis Kucinich Incurably Clueless?

“Representative Dennis J. Kucinich accused two of the major contenders for the Democratic nomination, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Edwards, of participating in a ‘conspiracy to rig the presidential election,’ after they apparently suggested that future presidential debates should be pared down to include fewer candidates,” reports the New York Times, or rather its “political blogging” division. “One argument would say that the presidency is for sale, and the other is kind of a Forrest Gump approach to politics, which says that if you have name recognition then you win without a campaign,” complained Kucinich. “But in a democracy people get exposed to ideas and they make the decision for themselves.”

Good one, Dennis.

It is not so much that the “presidency is for sale” rather than it is a fixed horse race, the horses picked and groomed by the global elite. It has nothing to do with Forrest Gump or not running a campaign. It has to do with the winner decided in advance and everything that follows is little more than a homecoming float rolled out to bedazzle the masses, who mostly believe everything they are told, even the ruse they live in a “democracy,” as Dennis would have it.

In Dennis’ “democracy,” the commoners “get exposed to ideas and they make the decision for themselves,” when in actuality the commoners are exposed to “ideas” trotted out by the corporate media, controlled by the same people who pick and groom the “candidates,” actually selectees, and the “decision” is made far in advance. Either Dennis is clueless and a Forrest Gump character himself—a simple man, not that shrewd political players, in Congress for decades on end, are simple-minded—or he is playing right along with the globalists, as dictated by the script. Of course, this may be deemed unfair to Mr. Kucinich. On the other hand, as a Congress insider and chairman of the Domestic Policy Subcommittee of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, it is difficult to believe he sincerely buys into the nonsense he peddles.

In letters sent to Clinton and Edwards, Kucinich wrote:

Rather than a mere forum restricted to 60 second answers that must avoid any critique of the history and positions of other participants, I am challenging you to a debate in the classical style. With America’s constitutional democracy shaping and defining the essence of our government, the American people deserve no less.

If you are truly seeking debates where there are fewer participants and where there is more meaningful and serious discourse, this is a great opportunity for us to join together in and an open discussion on behalf of the American people.

Um, Dennis? Far too many Americans have not the attention span or intellectual capacity for debates held in “classical style” and our globalist overseers understand this well, in fact have programmed the people for some sixty odd years now to be little more than dumbed-down cattle, sheeple if you please, with one hand on the television remote and the other shoved in a plastic bag of aspartame goodies. Unfortunately, and all too predictably, “meaningful and serious discourse” is not on the agenda, indeed it is resented by millions.

Moreover, John and Hillary, one a CFR regular and the other a Bilderberg attendee, are not interested in “discussion on behalf of the American people,” but smoke and mirrors for the sake of the global elite, the bankers, the transnational corporations, the aristocracy, the ruling elite families: the Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Kuhn-Loebs, Goldman-Sachs, to name but a few of the more recognizable. As Georgetown professor Dr. Carroll Quigley, who brought Bill Clinton under his wing, wrote in Tragedy and Hope (New York: Macmillan, 1966), the goal of the investment bankers firmly in control of the central banks is “nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole… controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”

It has nothing to do with “democracy,” essentially mob rule, or for that matter the supposed foundation of America, a constitutional republic. In fact, Americans have never enjoyed a constitutional republic, as the “constitutional lawyer,” Alexander Hamilton, made sure to deliver the First Bank of the United States, modeled after the Bank of England, in 1791. It was established precisely as an engine for speculation, financial manipulation, and corruption, and killed the Constitution and the Bill of Rights outright. It was no mistake, a few years later in 1798, president John Adams signed into law the Alien and Sedition Acts, designed to punish severely “Certain Crimes against the United States,” that is to say certain crimes—i.e., criticism of the government, a right supposedly enshrined in the First Amendment—against the banking and business elite that ran and run to this day the country. Ever since, we have lived under varying degrees of tyranny, often carefully window dressed as “democracy,” but as of late prancing around stark raving naked and in our faces, thanks to the lamentable fact the commoners are now dumb as dirt, or simply don’t give a whit.

Thus Dennis Kucinich is little more than an anachronism, a political throwback, a quaint if seriously out of touch politico from the 10th District of Ohio in the United States House of Corporate Whores, er “Representatives,” and as such suffers as a distant contestant in the fixed presidential race, about as remote and relevant as the Oort Cloud.

You can almost hear Hillary Clinton and John Edwards laughing.
