Death of the 2-party system: GOP bigwigs formally endorse Hillary Clinton

Sharing is Caring!

by Dr. Eowyn
Democrats and RepublicansWhatever happens on November 8, Donald Trump can claim this achievement: His candidacy exposed the fact that the two-party system of Democrats and Republicans is an illusion.
What we have in the U.S. instead is a corrupt polity where Democrat and Republican élites form a single ruling party, as Professor Emeritus Angelo M. Codevilla stunningly asserted in 2010. (See “America’s Bipartisan Ruling Class vs. the People“)
The evidence?
The following list of Republican bigwigs who, by publicly declaring their support for Hillary Clinton — the pathological liar who had accomplished nothing as secretary of state, but violated U.S. laws and jeopardized national security with her unsecured private email server; lied about and left four Americans to die in Benghazi; and supports the absolute “right” of women to kill their unborn — instead of Republican Party presidential nominee Donald Trump, have peeled away their masks, revealing their true faces.
monsterHere’s a list of the Republican élites who have declared they’ll vote for Hillary:

  1. Dan Akerson, former chairman and chief executive of General Motors: ‘‘Serving as the leader of the free world requires effective leadership, sound judgment, a steady hand and, most importantly, the temperament to deal with crises large and small. Donald Trump lacks each of these characteristics.’’
  2. Marc Andreessen, venture capitalist: ‘‘[Silicon] Valley wouldn’t be here, we wouldn’t be doing any of this if we didn’t have the amazing flow of immigrants that we’ve had in the last 80 years. And the idea of choking that off just makes me sick to my stomach.’’
  3. Richard Armitage, deputy secretary of state and adviser to Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush: Trump ‘‘doesn’t appear to be a Republican, he doesn’t appear to want to learn about issues. So I’m going to vote for Mrs. Clinton.’’
  4. Max Boot, senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and adviser to GOP presidential candidates: ‘‘I’m literally losing sleep over Donald Trump. She would be vastly preferable to Trump.’’
  5. Sally Bradshaw, former top Jeb Bush adviser, who told CNN that she left the GOP and became an independent because of Trump: “As much as I don’t want another four years of Obama’s policies, I can’t look my children in the eye and tell them I voted for Donald Trump.’’
  6. Arne Carlson, a former two-term Republican governor of Minnesota who supported Obama.
  7. Jim Cicconi, former Reagan and George H.W. Bush aide: ‘‘Hillary Clinton is experienced, qualified and will make a fine president. The alternative, I fear, would set our nation on a very dark path.’’
  8. Eliot Cohen, former Bush administration official who has been called “the most influential neocon in academe,” declared Clinton “the lesser evil, by a large margin.”
  9. Maria Comella, former spokeswoman for governors Chris Christie and Rudy Giuliani: ‘‘Instead of speaking out against instances of bigotry, racism and inflammatory rhetoric whether it’s been against women, immigrants, or Muslims, we made a calculus that it was better to say nothing at all in the interest of politics and winning elections.’’
  10. Doug Elmets, former Reagan spokesman: ‘‘I could live with four years of Hillary Clinton before I could ever live with one day of Donald Trump as president.’’ Elmets spoke at the Democratic National Convention, along with other Republicans now backing Clinton.
  11. Mike Fernandez, $4 million to GOP candidates in recent years: ‘‘If I have a choice — and you can put it in bold — if I have a choice between Trump and Hillary Clinton, I’m choosing Hillary. She’s the lesser of two evils.’’
  12. Charles Fried, US solicitor general under Reagan and current Harvard Law School professor: ‘‘Though long a registered Republican, this will be the third consecutive presidential election in which my party forces the choice between party and, in John McCain’s words, putting America first. . . . It is to [Mitt] Romney’s credit that this year, like John Paulson and George Will, he is standing up against the brutal, substantively incoherent, and authoritarian tendencies of Donald Trump.”
  13. Richard Hanna, a “moderate” Republican Congressman (NY) who is retiring this year, told The Syracuse Post Standard he will support Hillary because Trump is unfit to lead: “I think Trump is a national embarrassment. Is he really the guy you want to have the nuclear codes?”
  14. Ben Howe, contributing editor at
  15. Robert Kagan, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution; former Reagan State Department aide and adviser to the campaigns of John McCain and Mitt Romney; will vote for Hillary.
  16. Peter Mansoor, retired Army colonel and former aide to disgraced general David Petraeus: ‘‘It will be the first Democratic presidential candidate I’ve voted for in my adult life.’’
  17. Hamid Moghadam, chairman and chief executive of Prologis: ‘‘Our country is about tolerance and inclusion and that’s why, as a lifelong Republican supporter, I endorse Hillary Clinton for president in this election.’’
  18. William Oberndorf, $3 million to GOP candidates since 2012: ‘‘If it is Trump vs. Clinton, and there is no viable third-party candidate, I will be voting for Hillary Clinton.’’
  19. Henry Paulson, treasury secretary to George W. Bush. Paulson wrote: “When it comes to the presidency, I will not vote for Donald Trump. ‘I will not cast a write-in vote. I’ll be voting for Hillary Clinton, with the hope that she can bring Americans together to do the things necessary to strengthen our economy, our environment and our place in the world. To my Republican friends: I know I’m not alone.’’
  20. Larry Pressler, former three-term Republican senator from South Dakota: ‘‘I can’t believe I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton for president, but I am. If someone had told me 10 years ago I would do this, I wouldn’t have believed them.’’
  21. Chuck Robbins, chief executive of Cisco.
  22. Mark Salter, former top adviser to John McCain: ‘‘Whatever Hillary Clinton’s faults, she’s not ignorant or hateful or a nut. She acts like an adult and understands the responsibilities of an American president. That might not be a ringing endorsement. But in 2016, the year of Trump’s s campaign, it’s more than enough.’’
  23. Kori Schake, National Security Council and State Department aide.
  24. Robert Smith, former judge on New York’s highest court, the Court of Appeals: ‘‘This year, I’m going to vote for a Democrat for president — the first time I’ve done it in 36 years — and I think the decision is easy. Hillary Clinton is the only responsible choice, and I don’t understand why so few of my fellow conservatives see it that way.’’
  25. Brent Scowcroft, chairman of the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board and adviser to three previous GOP presidents: ‘‘The presidency requires the judgment and knowledge to make tough calls under pressure . . . [Clinton] has the wisdom and experience to lead our country at this critical time.’’
  26. Craig Snyder, former chief of staff to then-Republican former senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and also an ex-colleague of former top Trump adviser Roger Stone and current top Trump adviser Paul Manafort.
  27. Alan Steinberg, regional EPA administrator.
  28. Mike Treiser, former Mitt Romney aide: ‘‘In the face of bigotry, hatred, violence, and small-mindedness, this time, I’m with her.’’
  29. Meg Whitman, Hewlett Packard executive; former California gubernatorial contender.

George W. Bush hugs Hillary at Nancy Reagan funeral
As The Daily Bell observes:

There is only one party: pro-war and pro-technocratic (corporatist).
The fundamental mythology of US politics is that the Democrats are socialist-oriented and Republicans believe in freedom and individual human rights.
But Hillary is corporatist, not socialist….
Important Republicans call Trump’s stances “brutal, substantively incoherent, and authoritarian.”
Strangely, Hillary’s actions and statements provide evidence of the very authoritarianism and brutality that Trump is being accused of.
When she and her husband entered the White House, one of the very first things Hillary did was fire the staff of the travel office in order to put her own people in place.
She didn’t just fire the staff however, she also tried to get the head of the office, Director Billy Dale, put in jail for embezzlement. He was subsequently found not guilty and Hillary herself was investigated for initiating the firings and making false accusations.
Her intimidation and blackmailing of her husband’s lovers is well known by this point- and thus her campaign’s emphasis on “women’s rights” is ironic to say the least.
Her voting record and statements reveal an individual who is most comfortable with US serial wars abroad, no matter the reason (or lack of reasons).
Additional  accusations against Hillary and her husband include violence and even murder of individuals whose interests diverged from theirs.
Most notably, Hillary has been accused of orchestrating the death of Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster.
None of this seems to register with Republicans who are “crossing over”….
Conclusion: Whatever else takes place during this federal election, the disintegration of the credibility of the two-party system is perhaps the most important development of all.

  1. It’s a list of people who are involved in the Bush/Clinton Cabal – the criminal establishment that must install the High Preistess of Crime – if Trump wins he cleans house, stops the corruption and prosecutes – of course they are desperate to defeat Trump

  2. The 2 party thing ALWAYS was just smoke and mirrors, just like 99% of all politicians. That is exactly why I want Donald Trump to win, I don’t want another career (criminal) politician as POTUS. I want those types to PAY the price for their lying, cheating, stealing, killing, and other shenanigans.
    (and I don’t mean pay money… their worship of money is what got them to where we are.) I want the puppetmasters to pay, even more than their little flunkies in office. One way or another, they will pay.

  3. These men and women good and true have changed many a lifelong Republicans commitment to a political party. The GOP will never repair the broken trust of fiscal conservative, Christian Constitutionalists. They refuse to support the candidate who champions all of the causes they expounded upon for years. The Bush, Clinton, Obama menage a trois is no more than the passing of the collection plate for the pompous elite. Truly disgusting. They all need to be on trial for their crimes.

  4. I thought it would take about 3 election cycles to be able to expose this.
    Never thought that Trump would ever run.
    Glad he did.

  5. It was predicted that eventually the two parties will become one. Once they either rename themselves into one new party or one eats the other, which is the more likely case, we’ll be a full blown Communist country by then ruled by Brussels like the rest of the Western world. This reality also goes along with the fact that Hillary and Obama were picked to be presidents a long time ago and that the election is just a puppet show to make us believe that we live in a representative democracy. When Hillary gets into White House it will be proof positive that voting is useless and no matter the outcome the Corporate Media will lying every step of the way and spin the conclusion to serve their masters.

    “Crony Socialism” – Ex-Soviet Economist, Yuri Maltsev, on Comrade Hillary, Socialism, Fascism, and Trumpism

  7. Actually this may be the REBIRTH of the two party system ….. drive the treasonous neocons to the Democrats where they belong. Look at all the neocon SNAKES shedding their Conservative skins and SLITHERING to Socialist Hillary.

    • “I have been a neo-Marxist, a neo-Trotskyist, a neo-socialist, a neoliberal, and finally a neoconservative.” – Irving Kristol, Neo-Conservatism: The Autobiography of an Idea
      They’ve always been there, they were just duping the “conservatives” and “christians”…by introducing neomarxist dialectics dressed up with apple pie and psuedo patriotism(loaded language):
      “Coping with a religious revival, however, is something that conservatives and the Republican party are not yet prepared to do. Religious people always create problems since their ardor tends to outrun the limits of politics in a constitutional democracy.”
      “The Democrats are never going to be able to welcome the religious, but if the Republicans keep them at arm’s length instead of embracing them, and shaping their political thinking, a third party and a restructuring of American politics are certain.” – Irving Kristol, The Coming “Conservative Century.”
      “The idea of a welfare state is in itself perfectly consistent with a conservative political philosophy–as Bismarck knew, a hundred years ago. The only interesting political question is: How will they get it?
      “This is not a question the Republican party has faced up to, because it still feels, deep down, that a welfare state is inconsistent with such traditional American virtues as self-reliance and individual liberty.” Irving Kristol, The Republican Future 1976

  8. There is one party, the POWER Party. Most of the . leaders of the power party rarely appear in the USA; their home is in the old country and Europe. Two of the exceptions are the Bush Crime Family who controls (with permission) much of the Drug Trade and Assassination Enforcement Apparatus and the Clinton Crime Family who appears to control a lot of the Blackmail Enforcement Apparatus.
    The Power Party Mostly controls
    o The US Bureaucracy
    o The US War Machine
    o The US Drug Trade
    o The US “Health Care System”
    o The US “Education System”
    o Whatever they need to control
    There are two branches to the Power Party. They get the considerable spoils allowed them by the Power Party. However the Power Party milks a lot of the rake in. Each of the branches is allowed to spend about equal time in the “presidency”. Outsiders or other “presidents” who go too far against the Power Party are mostly assassinated.
    All this is being accomplished while 99% of the workers in the Branches are blissfully unaware of the evil controlling their output.
