Author and political commentator Joel Skousen gives an in-depth discussion on how the election process is controlled by the establishment, with a particular focus on the 2012 election and the co-opted Tea Party movement. Skousen gives a detailed explanation of how he thinks the 2012 election will play out, with either Newt Gingrich or Sarah Palin emerging as the victorious Republican candidate.
Looking back to 2008, Skousen notes how Rudy Giuliani was promoted early on as one of the top Republican candidates when in fact he was a cross-dressing hardcore liberal. Judging from the poll numbers that Giuliani was going down in flames, the establishment had a big problem on their hands, especially given the candidacy of Ron Paul, and it was then that six major newspapers endorsed John McCain even though he was polling at only 2-3 per cent.
Knowing that McCain did not have a good record with conservatives, he was reviled in some quarters for promoting amnesty for illegal immigrants under the Bush administration, Sarah Palin was brought in to make conservatives bite the bullet and acquiesce to having John McCain be the candidate. Palin was picked because she would be very easy to manipulate, explains Skousen, and although initially Palin proved difficult to influence, she did finally succumb. Palin is now used to co-opt the Tea Party movement, and will be just as easily manipulated as was George W. Bush if she ever becomes President.
Skousen explains how the Tea Party movement was founded by grass roots Ron Paul supporters, but is now in very real danger of being destroyed by the likes of Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, who so often resort to excessive generalities in demonizing their political opposition that they can easily be debunked by the establishment. Skousen says Palin is being groomed for prominence in 2012, but that Newt Gingrich will probably become the primary establishment frontrunner for the Republicans, a man who has completely betrayed all constitutionalist principles and is clearly a globalist masquerading as a conservative. If Mitt Romney runs, then Mike Huckabee will act as his spoiler, predicts Skousen.
Should the movement behind Palin be strong enough and she wins the Republican primary, “I believe the establishment will throw another four years to Barack Obama,” predicts Skousen, saying that Palin’s campaign will be sabotaged by mud-slinging, noting that Democrats tend to be given eight years rather than four by the establishment because they can do more damage than compromised Republicans, for example as bad as George W. Bush was, he could never have got Obamacare passed under a Republican administration. Alternatively, Palin could be paired with Newt Gingrich as a vice-presidential candidate to make Gingrich more palatable for conservatives.
Perhaps most chillingly, Skousen predicts that the eight year period after the Obama administration will be the most traumatic for Americans and that it will be characterized by major wars, if not a world war, and that during that period of time, the globalists want Newt Gingrich to be in office as a war President.
