Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yup, they are highly paid to provide a bulwark against any real change happening to their cozy arrangement to keep America in a state of permanent war, something they could not afford were it not for the petrodollar hegemony, which may be on its last legs if the new wave of multi-culti democrats gain any traction towards a renewables new deal.
A highly profitable status quo is absolutely not to be disturbed, and they will kill anyone in their way if necessary.
Lip service to change, such as provided by Joe Biden for example is all they have, and honestly I believe they'd rather lose again to Trump than give up their cash cows by letting these mouthy youngsters - women no less!- get any closer to the levers of power.
Trump is actually closer to them ideologically than is Sanders, notwithstanding his base rabble hellbent on making libruls the new Jews, along with Muslims and Mexicans.
Upstart populist dreamers like AOC Must. Be. Slapped. Down. Hard. Now.
