Paul Craig Roberts: Can The Oligarchy Still Steal The Presidential Election?

Paul Craig Roberts

The election was set up to be stolen from Trump. That was the purpose of the polls rigged by overweighting Hillary supporters in the samples. After weeks of hearing poll results that Hillary was in the lead, the public would discount a theft claim. Electronic voting makes elections easy to steal, and I have posted explanations by election fraud experts of how it is done.
Clearly the Oligarchy does not want Donald Trump in the White House as they are unsure that they could control him, and Hillary is their agent. 
With the reopening of the FBI investigation of Hillary and related scandals exploding all around her, election theft is not only more risky but also less likely to serve the Oligarchy’s own interests.
Image as well as money is part of Oligarchic power. The image of America takes a big hit if the American people elect a president who is currently under felony investigation. 

Moreover, a President Hillary would be under investigation for years. With so much spotlight on her, she would not be able to serve the Oligarchy’s interests. She would be worthless to them, and, indeed, investigations that unearthed various connections between Hillary and oligarchs could damage the oligarchs. 
In other words, for the Oligarchy Hillary has moved from an asset to a liability.
A Hillary presidency could put our country into chaos. I doubt the oligarchs are sufficiently stupid to think that once she is sworn in, Hillary can fire FBI Director Comey and shut down the investigation. The last president that tried that was Richard Nixon, and look where that got him. 
Moreover, the Republicans in the House and Senate would not stand for it. House Committee on oversight and Government Reform chairman Jason Chaffetz has already declared Hillary to be “a target-rich environment. Even before we get to day one, we’ve got two years worth of material already lined up.” House Speaker Paul Ryan said investigation will follow the evidence.
If you were an oligarch, would you want your agent under this kind of scrutiny? If you were Hillary, would you want to be under this kind of pressure?

What happens if the FBI recommends the indictment of the president? Even insouciant Americans would see the cover-up if the attorney general refused to prosecute the case. Americans would lose all confidence in the government. Chaos would rule. Chaos can be revolutionary, and that is not good for oligarchs.
Moreover, if reports can be believed, salacious scandals appear to be waiting their time on stage. For example, last May Fox News reported: 
“Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” — even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by
“Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on manifests by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana.” The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.”

Fox News reports that Epstein served time in prison for “solicitation and procurement of minors for prostitution. He allegedly had a team of traffickers who procured girls as young as 12 to service his friends on ‘Orgy Island,’ an estate on Epstein’s 72-acre island, called Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.”  Some Internet sites, the credibility of which is unknown to me, have linked Hillary to these flights.
This kind of behavior seems reckless even for Bill and Hillary, who are accustomed to getting away with everything. Nevertheless, if you are an oligarch already worried about the reopened Hillary email case and additional FBI investigations, such as the one into the Clinton Foundation, and concerned about what else might emerge from the 650,000 emails on former US Rep. Weiner’s computer and the NYPD pedophile investigation, putting Hillary in the Oval Office doesn’t look like a good decision.
At this point, I would think that the Oligarchy would prefer to steal the election for Trump, instead of from him, rather than allow insouciant Americans to destroy America’s reputation by choosing a person under felony investigations for president of the United States.
Being the “exceptional nation” takes on new meaning when there is a criminal at the helm.

"It was a company set up by William Stephenson's Special Operations Executive that we know today as the Hollinger Group, controlled by the Canadian and leading Bilderberger, CONRAD BLACK, the owner of the global media empire which includes the London Telegraph newspapers and The Jerusalem Post . . . . The Bronfman gang were close to CONRAD BLACK's father, another booze merchant and intelligence operative with the SOE, ..." - D. Icke: The Truth will make you free. CONRAD BLACK attended Trump's wedding to Melania, as did Hillary and Bill, in Florida.

  3. Jim: here's the best documentation I've found to walk people through HOW elections are stolen. I know computer experts: the programming to predetermine an election for a 51% to 49% "winner" is easy and obvious. Check this:

  4. My take is that stealing it for the demon Hillary would create such a cry for paper ballots that they would have to give them to us. The machines are too valuable to them as so many of their butt boys are still in office because of them. Think Scott Walker etc. They may be planning to let Trump win and then get a nice warmonger, like Pence or anyone else, to replace him. It's going to be crazy.

  5. Trumps invested in the Dakota Pipeline, think he's any different? We're screwed, same as with Hillary. Covered how the GOP steals elections with Greg Palast a week ago, nothing's changed since 2000. Welcome to the ultimate reality show folks, expect a wild year.

  6. They did not let the votes go honestly in order to give Trump the win. The exact opposite happened. The votes were rigged for Hillary from the beginning in those battleground states that mattered. After the 650K email revelations and the NYPD being an outside influence was involved, the FBI had to "reopen" the Hillary CF case. The revelations were so enormous and so egregious that the information was going to bring down the ENTIRE government of the U.S. and cause a civil war.
