Trump is “An Infuriating but Fascinating” Distraction
By Joe Jarvis - May 11, 2017

The President is very much a figurehead – he wields no real power whatsoever. He is apparently chosen by the government, but the qualities he is required to display are not those of leadership but those of finely judged outrage. For this reason the President is always a controversial choice, always an infuriating but fascinating character. His job is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it.

An orange sash is what the President of the Galaxy traditionally wears.

On those criteria Zaphod Beeblebrox is one of the most successful Presidents the Galaxy has ever had.

That is a quote from the novel The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and it is quite prophetic, right down to the orange sash, though Trump prefers to wear it on his head.

The Distractor in Cheif is clearly meant to take attention away from the actual workings of government and focus it on the silly things he says, the people he fires, Russia, and how rich and elite his family is.

He is outraged all right. And all the focus will stay on that outrage.

He’s even got people to start watching cable again! And when citizens watch cable, citizens are properly programmed.

Trump does it all. He inspires fiery passions in the opposition and his followers alike. He is impossible not to comment on. If you think the government is corrupt, there are 100 examples all referring to Trump, and nothing else.

If you want to believe America is great again, just look at the examples Trump has given!

Ah but really Americans are ignorant and haughty–just look at the leader they elected!

All conversation involving power, the American government, the good, the bad, the corruption, the strength; Trump represents them all, and there is no reason to look elsewhere. No reason to dig deeper, to research and find the true rivers of power.

Trump is the great and powerful Oz, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a hilarious recap of all the issues with bureaucracy and centralized power. The archetypes of government workers are perfectly displayed as you find out the galaxy is pretty much run just like the Earth… unfortunately.

Sure, the Earth was destroyed to make a galactic bypass just minutes before new technology was created which made bypasses obsolete, but it’s not like we didn’t have a chance to protest!

After all, the plans for the demolition had been on display on Alpha Centauri for 50 years. Humans all had the proper chance at the proper time to petition the government not to destroy the Earth.

What do you mean you’ve never been to Alpha Centauri? For heaven’s sake mankind, it’s only four light years away you know. I’m sorry, but if you can’t be bothered to take an interest in local affairs that’s your own lookout.”

    Trump is not only a show, a theater act, he is also firmly in the pockets of the zioninsts. Thus he is also not anti-establishment. He IS the establishment. But it is worse – he is transgendered (probably prepubescently) like all the illuminati “elite” – the perfect blackmailing tool if one is not filmed in some child sacrifice satanic ritual. His “wives” and children are trannies as well (and married to ones). Also check his naked wax statue – this is not a male organ between his legs, but a deformed female one as a result of a testosterone hormone replacement therapy. What is also left on the statue (so that he is not “completely” naked) is the masonic ring. Now – enjoy your pros and contras discussions of Trump.

      reality is far less interesting than you make it out to be….thank you for trying though

      • JohnnyZ

        Reality is that you are an asleep sheep in denial. Boring, true.

    • Kernel01

      …and the point is?

      • JohnnyZ

        Well, it should be obvious, but for the slower thinkers I will spell out some of the implications: Stop identifying yourself with the politicians. They never represented you. Their dialectic fights are just scripted theatrics. Even the “anti-establishment” ones are THE establishment. It is an illusion of choice. The deception is not only moral / within principles, it is also physical and hidden in plain sight. Open your eyes. Enough?

        • Kernel01

          Trump is the answer since he’s not a LAWYER, but a doer.

          • JohnnysZone

            That is kindergarten level of reasoning…

  • toddyo1935

    Where Trump is off his game is that he has been forced into the sewer with the progressives, trying to counter their ugliness. Trump is at his best when beauty is prime. Women and their appearance fits into the broader picture, but look at what he builds! Look at his surroundings.

    Look at the quality of the things he furnishes and maintains his facilities with – from his airplane to his homes to the Old Post Office on Pennsylvania Avenue. Quality development – whether an inner city rebirth or a luxury hotel, equates to more demand for skills and dedication – from the planner and designer’s conception to polishing the brass by a mentally challenged person who would take great pride in such a job – and all that lies in between.

    Bring us into your beautiful visions Donald, and we’ll ride all the way with you to make America Great and Beautiful again!

    Keep telling the ugly progressives to get lost!

      That’s some serious weaponised potato, right there.

  • Dimitri Ledkovsky

    Is the Donald just a dumbo? A speedy internet search on his expressive skills yields opinions on his vocabulary/speech as those of a 3rd, 4th or fifth grader, depending on the writer. Some grant him a vocabulary of as low as 77 words. Others have that figure as high as 200 words, again 5th grade level. His penchant to repeat… and repeat again… his simply phrased thoughts could be the clever use of a common rhetorical trick, or could it be that he imagines his verbalized thoughts to be so sophisticated that they bear repetition? Indeed the speech patterns are a distraction. To what end? Perhaps to conceal that nothing of consequence is being said.

    • autonomous

      It could be a recognition that the average vocabulary/speech sills of the American public is 5th grade level. That’s the level at which newspaper articles have been written for the past two decades. That’s the upper limit of popular entertainment (including broadcast news).

      • john cummins

        You are overly optimistic, I place it at about 3rd grade. The King James Bible is at 6th grade level and a majority of Americans can’t understand it. The English is too advanced.

        • MountainMan

          Yep. This doesn’t say much about the public schools, does it? All those years, all those grades, all that money…..down the drain.

    • Licia

      or maybe he has been playing to the tunes set by the appointed spin doctors and speach writers.

    • Repetition is the law of memorization so to speak. Paul said he used It.

      Watch for it the usual VIA Media. They do it too. They just get to use a parade of talking heads to do it. But all saying the same things, arguing over mostly semantics and tactics but same implicit premises: big government, welfare state theft, a warrior state to keep us “safe”, etc.

  • CCblogging

    Pay no attention to the writer behind this article. Trump Be Da Man!

  • Libertarian Jerry

    I didn’t vote for Mr.Trump nor for Ms.Clinton. As a man of principle I wrote in Ron Paul’s name in the write in section in the voting booth. . With that said,I believe that Mr.Trump’s opposition both in the Republican Party and the Democratic Party,along with the “Deep State” have greatly underestimated Pres.Trump. He beat back several contenders in the Republican Primaries and,despite being outspent by Clinton and vilified by the Main Stream Media,managed to pull off one of the biggest political upsets in over 100 years. The attacks against him today mount yet he still comes out moving his agenda forward. To those who are out to destroy Mr.Trump they should do so at their own peril for this man Trump is nobody’s fool.

    • john cummins

      Ditto here on RP

  • georgesilver

    I have never met the man. I don’t know him except through the media and alternative press. I’ve never been to any of his developments so the only thing I have to go on is that both American political parties seem to hate him. In my book that’s a very positive attribute. As for “who’s pocket he’s in” I have no idea. Maybe nobody’s.

    • JohnnyZ

      It would be nice for a change, but it is not. Every politician at that level is in the same pocket – of some “elite” group that may be pretending to fight with another, but on a higher level they actually cooperate.

      • georgesilver

        Sort of thing I usually say when “I’m shooting from the hip” but I now think a bit of real proof might be helpful. Got any REAL proof to share?

    What’s happened to the insightful Daily Bell?? Lost its thunder to say the least. I used to be impressed every time now its the opposite. The previous formula in which the author would present the topic at hand then close with an insightful DB synopsis was ingenious. Will The Daily Bell recover its mojo?? Keeping my fingers crossed…

  • georgesilver

    Earlier in the comments I was looking for some evidence about Trump. Looks as though we do.
    “Jarad Kushner
    He’s Trump’s son-in-law. And he seems to be running the show in the White House.
    Yet he apparently is completely immune from the need to make public statements.
    Hobbies:
    He runs investment money for one of the richest families in Israel and he personally owes hundreds of millions to big banks.
    He’s a colleague and friend to George Soros.
    And his attorney is a major Democratic Party operative.”

    Did the teacher who assigned this composition set a minimum word length? Just wondering why one paragraph was duplicated almost verbatim three times in the middle of the article.

    • Thank you for pointing that out, it was a technical issue that has been fixed.
