Could it be that America’s ruling classes, its Imperial state and the Federal Reserve, no longer rule their own destiny?
America’s smug ruling classes are supremely confident: they feel no fear, no caution, and exhibit no prudence.

The Deep State is confident that its Imperial toady Hillary Clinton will win the election, beating the Upstart Crow, paving a smooth path to unhindered Imperial entanglements around the world. Hillary never saw an Imperial entanglement she didn’t like, and her track record of abysmal failure doesn’t phase her.
