Oligarchs would prefer, but don’t need, a president with a pulse according to American writer and political analyst Daniel Patrick Welch .
He says that if Hillary Clinton is elected president of the United States, she will be a sock puppet for the global ruling elite.
Welch said that the Democratic presidential nominee does not need to be healthy to do the bidding of her handlers. “All they need is a pulse, and a finger to push the button when they tell you to.”
Press TV reports:
On Monday, Bill Clinton dismissed mounting health rumors about his wife, saying Hillary is “doing fine” despite being diagnosed with pneumonia.
The 68-year-old former First Lady was forced to abruptly leave a 9/11 memorial in New York on Sunday due to a medical episode, stirring speculations about her well-being.
The candidate’s physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, released a statement via the campaign and said she had pneumonia. Her campaign, however, blamed the incident on her simply feeling “overheated.”
Welch said that “this whole thing about Hillary’s health, it’s just another red herring.”
“First of all it’s an opportunity for her handlers to spout even more lies, because you never get the truth out of these people. You know, she’s dehydrated, she’s over heated, she has pneumonia… Nobody knows and you can’t trust what they tell you,” he said.
“The problem is — first of all, you don’t need to be very healthy to do this job; you’re just a sock puppet,” the analyst explained.
“All they need is a pulse, and a finger to push the button when they tell you to — which [they] is finance capital and the people who are the overlords of the US and the global ruling class. But it does give them an opportunity to then spout a new round of lies, that this is what shows that she’s overworked because she’s is working like a demon, she works so hard, fighting for us – all this crap,” he stated.
“It’s like a ballet of choreographed lunacy where everything only exists inside an echo chamber, and it’s all about branding, and marketing, and convincing people that they are living in a real democracy,” Welch noted. “And so every new scandal, and scheme, and shadow can be used to further the larger picture.”
“And if you look at it, just today the Washington Post is floating this ridiculous rumor by some famous doctor who tweeted that [Russian President Vladimir] Putin did it. They should do a toxicology report on Clinton because he doesn’t trust Putin and Trump,” he said.
While admittedly speaking a bit tongue in cheek, the analyst went on to say that Clinton is a darling of the elites because of her unwavering commitment to American exceptionalism, the supremacist belief that fuels Americans’ acceptance of their government’s endless wars.
“The fact is that whoever sits on that seat, and Hillary Clinton will likely be the one, healthy or not, living or not, they will just prop her up and keep her finger on the button, is the ultimate proponent of supremacist ideology in the world,” he stated.
Americans are taught, and lied to and nurtured to believe that they and in particular white people are the best people in the world. They’re exceptional, there’s something very different about us. And if you don’t believe this you can watch Hillary Clinton’s speech to the American Legion just a couple of weeks ago,” he continued.
“This clip about American Exceptionalism: two of the scariest minutes of vile hate speech that has ever been recorded in modern times. About how the world suffers when the US doesn’t act and how the US is the indispensable nation — this is just a vomit source of supremacist theory that results in war. It is predicated on war, on smashing any particular opponent that resists this supremacist ideology,” he noted.
“No wonder they hire and train other supremacists like the death squads in Syria. They believe the same thing — they have an almost genetic supremacist ideology that just will not stop until it conquers the whole world,” the analyst stated.
“It shows itself at home in rising racism — whether it’s Trump’s camp or Clinton’s there is a seriously racist country over here. And fascism, this hostility to democracy, the criminalization of dissent that makes the idea of democracy a complete fraud,” he said.
The writer went on to say that “Clinton, healthy or unhealthy, or however it works, is going to be the next proponent of this sick cause.”
“It’s hard to keep saying the same thing over and over, but this a really, really scary time, for the whole world, but in particular black and brown people at home and immigrants here and in Europe, and the peoples and countries of the Global South,” he observed.
“Because what they want is war with the whole world, starting with taking out China and Russia. And they won’t stop until they get their way,” the political commentator concluded.
