I understand this is premature because Donald Trump has not yet won the Republican nomination. In fact, it would still not surprise me if the Republican establishment finds a way to rig the game and get a brokered convention to get Trump off the ticket.
Still, it is fun to speculate on who Trump should choose as a running mate if he holds on to the nomination. It isn’t much fun guessing with Rubio or Cruz as the nominee because they are likely to pick another insider. Maybe Cruz could surprise us, but probably not.
For Trump, I am not sure if he realizes how high the stakes are. He has already taken out Jeb Bush, and he is likely to face Hillary Clinton unless she gets indicted. Of course, even she does get indicted, he still may face her.
Trump is taking on perhaps the two most powerful families in existence. They are extremely dangerous.
The Clintons have a long history of threatening people to make them fall in line. It is incredible how many people associated with the Clintons have either gone to prison or met an untimely death. Most of these deaths were labeled as accidents or suicides.
It is interesting that Roger Stone has recently released books on both the Clintons and the Bushes and their crimes. I heard Roger Stone say he is planning to release a book on the death of John F. Kennedy Jr. Kennedy was supposedly getting ready to announce a run for the Senate in New York. This could have served as a stepping stone to the presidency.
This was the same time that Hillary Clinton was preparing her run for the Senate out of New York, which was also her stepping stone into the presidency. Obama put a bump in her road, but she is trying to continue on now.
If JFK Jr. died in his plane accident due to foul play, elements of the establishment also had reason to keep him out of the Senate and the presidency. He could have uncovered what happened in his father’s assassination.
On the Bush side, George H. W. Bush had his connections to Texas politics and the CIA. He claimed he didn’t remember where he was when JFK was assassinated. In other words, his hands are likely all over that one.
Bush 41 attended one of the Republican debates, right after his son Jeb had dropped out. There is this creepy footage of Bush signaling a cut of the throat as Trump speaks. He may be 91 years old, but people don’t become less evil with age.
And that brings us back to Trump. I hope he knows that his life is in danger because of his threat to the establishment. His best life insurance policy is to pick a running mate that is just as much, or more so, of a threat to the establishment as he is. He should also stay separated from his running mate at all times.
I don’t think Ron Paul is at all likely because of his age and because of their difference in political positions.
The most obvious choice to me is Jesse Ventura. Trump and Ventura have quite a bit in common. Ventura is a truth seeker and he seems fearless in facing down the establishment. Ventura has some libertarian leanings, but he isn’t that great on economics, which is similar to Trump. Ventura is pretty good on the issue of war though, so him and Trump are not that far apart.
If Ventura were vice president, I don’t think the establishment would think about taking out Trump unless they could do a two-for-one deal.
If there are any attempts on Trump’s life at this point, it is unpredictable on what will result from it. Obviously his base of supporters would be highly suspicious to say the least. They would become even more anti-establishment. I think most libertarians would figure things out too, but they already have things figured out.
Unfortunately, this is what we live in. And it is nothing new. The Kennedy assassination in 1963 was a coup. It was likely the CIA and a few other insiders that did it. It is the establishment. Some refer to it as the deep state.
The deep state is not made up of any one individual or a defined group of individuals. It is hard to describe, but it is definitely a group of insiders. They don’t all have to have the same exact interests, but they share the interest of a secretive and powerful state. Parts of the CIA are part of this. The president may or may not be part of this. Parts of the NSA are probably part of this now.
I find conspiracy theories fascinating. And it would be nice if there is a smoking gun someday on something big that becomes widely known. It is always nice when criminals are caught.
I think having conspiracies exposed does help our cause for liberty in the sense that it does weaken the consent for the state.
With that said, I’m not sure how much would change if a big conspiracy were uncovered. If there was substantial evidence that the CIA took out Kennedy and it became widely known, would that change anything? People might find it interesting, but they would say that it happened a long time ago and that most of the people involved are now dead.
But it is highly significant in the fact that it reveals there is a deep state. When someone gets elected president who doesn’t go along with the deep state, then we can see what happens.
Ask someone you know what should happen if it were ever revealed that elements within the United States government were involved in the 9/11 attacks. What do you think their answer will be?
Most likely, the answer will be that the people who were involved should be put in jail, or perhaps given the death penalty.
But this doesn’t solve anything in the long run because there is still an establishment. It may take out a few individuals from the establishment and bring some form of justice to that one event, but it doesn’t change the deep state.
It is not as if a lot of people are going to say that since the government was involved in the 9/11 attacks that we should stop accepting Social Security from a bunch of murderers. Even though elements of the government have no problem with the murder of thousands of people, most Americans will still say we need the federal government for protection.
Do you see the problem here?
Donald Trump made a statement a few months ago that he could stand on the streets of New York and shoot somebody and his supporters would still stick by him. It was his attempt at a joke about the loyalty of his supporters.
I think we could have video footage of Hillary Clinton directing orders to take somebody out and I believe that some of her supporters really would stick with her. I can just envision some women saying that it doesn’t matter what she does because she fights for women’s rights.
Again, I hope Trump understands what he has gotten himself into here. Many people before him have been taken down by the establishment who were a lot less of a threat.
