Each time Trump is called a “populist”, he trumps Clinton some more. Not that I am exactly going to cry. The only way that the corrupt hilarious entity of the female persuasion, Clinton, could mollify my hostility would be if she selected Bernie Sanders as Vice-President. Some will sneer the VP has no power. However, he, or she, does. This is why President Roosevelt had to get rid of his all too “populist” VP before his fourth election to the Presidency.
Indeed, the VP cannot be at war with the President. Thus, Hillary Clinton would have to negotiate enough with Bernie Sanders for him to accept the VP job.
She will not do so. Her character is clear. So are the polls.
So Clinton will not become president. She will not become president, because she is establishment, and We The People has had enough with the establishment. Too much dancing with Wall Street.
In the West, the cheap trick to distract people with war is a bit too long in the tooth.
Going to war for the south of the South China Sea something that Chinese President Xi seems hell-bent to make us believe he will do, has been done before. Remember Hitler, backed by American plutocrats, playing chicken with France about Poland. France did not back down, even after Hitler officially allied himself with Stalin.
Xi underestimates the alliances the West has in the south South China Sea: alliances that bind, both ways. The sale of the most advanced submarines in the world, made by France, to Australia, with full US backing, is something Xi should meditate more. Actually, the Maoris, and other New Zealand troops opened the “Bastille Day” (14 Juillet 2016). This is revealing: under president Mitterrand, 30 years ago, New Zealand and Australia were in a state of cold, sometimes even explosive, war about the French “””colonies””” in the Pacific. (The crime of the French being not to have annihilated most of the aborigines, I suppose: half of the population of New Caledonia is aboriginal, whereas it’s rather 5% in Australia….)
But now reason has set in… France and the US are the two great powers of the Pacific, and clearly who protects most of the other countries there, from possible hegemonic distractions…
Contemplate Bush and Blair with their Iraq distraction. It is finally nearly known Iraq was just a red herring. The Economist has finally embraced my position that war criminals Bush and Blair are the main authors of present day “Islamist” terrorism (9/11 was a product of the CIA nurturing Bin Laden, and then of incredible laxity, from hubris, of the US defenses: compare with France or Israel, who handled air terrorism before…)

So, no more establishment. Thus no more Clinton. As simple as that.
As with Brexit, the Politically Correct are cruising for a bruisin. We The People have had enough to be directed from afar, led by the obscure side of the force.
Call me a “Populist”. But please remember that the American Revolution (even more than the French one) Started as a “We The People”, a “populist” revolution.
Sanders is Clinton’s only hope. Not as a campaigner. Anybody can campaign. As a VP.
