Wikileaks: There is no US election. There is power consolidation. Rigged primary, rigged media and rigged ‘pied piper’ candidate drive consolidation.
Of course we have no way to know if that is true, but if our nation has descended that low, then anything is possible. President Obama’s complete and total disdain for Prime Minister Netanyahu and everything he stands for has been proven time and time again over the past 8 years.
