Few basement dwellers, many discouraged Bernie Sanders supporters, are with Hillary Clinton, but the elite flock to line up behind her, as demonstrated again this weekend in Paris.
Barbara Bush, the 34-year old daughter of George W. Bush, partied with Huma Abedin and the elite at a Clinton fundraiser on Saturday. She is the granddaughter of former Republican president George H. W. Bush, the Bush clan patriarch who will vote for Clinton according to Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.
Photos of Bush and other patrons, resplendent in the latest haute couture, were posted to Instagram.
Bush’s attendance, Bush Senior’s nod, and a march of neocons and Republicans across the supposed partisan divide to the Clinton camp demonstrate there is little difference beyond rhetoric and tie color between the establishment political parties.
Remarkably, Laura Bush, Barbara’s mother, said earlier this year at an event on foreign policy and women leaders, she wants “our next president—whoever he or she might be—to be somebody who is interested in women in Afghanistan and who will continue US policies … that we continue to do what we’re committed to do as a country.”

The longest war and occupation in American history has thus far cost over a trillion dollars, about $33,000 per American, including basement dwellers who are lucky to find part-time work as baristas and Molly Maid housecleaners.
The Clinton fundraiser was hosted by Abedin and Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, and held at the mansion of the American-born socialite Lauren Davis Santo Domingo. She is married to Colombian beer billionaire Andrés Santo Domingo, the first cousin of Monegasque royal Tatiana Santo Domingo who is married to Princess Caroline of Monaco’s son Andrea Casiraghi.
It cost $5,000 to attend the fundraiser. Co-hosts paid $10,000 for “preferred seating” at the dinner.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond, the propaganda war against outlier and loudmouth Donald Trump continued. On Saturday the crown jewel of the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, the elite’s 60 year old secret campaign to control media, The Washington Post, ran an article highlighting the travail of a Trump supporter who was involuntarily locked up in a mental institution for ranting online that Obama should be hanged and the White House burned to the ground.
Stephanie McCrummen, who specializes in writing about mental illness, portrayed the deplorables as unhinged, wacko, and even dangerous. She made sure to throw in the spouter Alex Jones and ran through the litany of conspiracy theories cited by the establishment to besmirch the opposition.
