๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ Man of The People: President Trump makes a surprise visit to The Red Arrow, a restaurant in New Hampshire and orders The Trump Tower Burger. $18.99. – The Donald – America First

Actually… you’re going to hate me for this… no. He is a prototypical member of the hereditary elitist political class, groomed from childhood to rule the people. His grandfather, Nobusuke Kishi, was a Class A war criminal and former prime minister, and there have been several high-ranking politicians and lawmakers in his family.

This family is just one of several that have been ruling the Liberal Democratic Party, and therefore Japan, for three generations. And I mean literal generations, not just periods of time: political office is passed down from father to son, uncle to nephew, sometimes daughters and nieces. There was a brief interregnum in 2010-2012 when the opposition finally got a shot; then Abe and the LDP machine recovered everything.

This party sees the Japanese public as serfs or cattle to be milked and used for the benefit of the elite. In the war the elites sent men to their deaths; in the post-war growth period they sent wage earners to work to death, all for the benefit of the state.

Abe continuously pushed for currency devaluation and inflation as he secured his second term as if the world’s bankers were writing his lines for him. The public has suffered all along, with consumer and especially energy prices rising sharply while the yen has plummeted (a dollar bought 80 yen in 2012; at one point last year was 150). It has been an organized and “soft landing” impoverishment of the working class, whose material situation has been in decline since Abe and his party returned to office in 2012.

But there is one thing I will say in his favor and that is that he was very publicly friendly with Donald Trump (during the visit where they fed the tent). This is something that very few world leaders are willing to do. As an American I absolutely applaud him for that. But in almost every other facet, it’s an out-of-touch political elite that holds the public in the same contempt that the Bidens or Hillary do.
