No CEOs at Fortune 100 Companies Are Backing Donald Trump
SEPTEMBER 24, 2016, 2:13 PM EDT
…In comparison, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has received twice as many donations from Fortune100 execs than President Obama did in 2012, according to the Journal. Just last month, Clinton received checks for $2,700 from Apple’s Tim Cook, American Airlines’ Doug Parker, and Nike’s Mark Parker. Individuals are capped at donating $5,400 to a candidate
The Journal reports that the 11 CEOs that back Clinton have donated more than $30,000 to her campaign. The financial loss for Trump’s campaign is modest, but garnering support from top executives is often a goal for candidates, as it gives off the impression to voters that the candidate is competent, especially on economic issues, according to the Journal.
The Corporate Media just doesn’t get it. This is an endorsement for Donald Trump!
Apple. Nike. The same outfits that have shipped thousands of jobs overseas to have their products made by sweatshop workers making a few dollars a day while they sell their products back home for hundreds of dollars. Even American Airlines is not excluded from this illustrious list (http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2015/11/airplane-maintenance-disturbing-truth, Vanity Fair, December, 2015). Meg Whitman, CEO of Hewlett-Packard is opposed to Trump. Another corporate off-shorer. A company whose products used to be top-of-the-line, but now manufactures garbage.
Jeffrey Immelt, CEO OF General Electric, doesn’t like Trump either. Immelt purportedly bases his concerns on Trump’s “Muslims and immigrants” remarks. But it is more plausible that he fears his company, which received nearly $140-billion from the “federal” “reserve,” is likely to have the bailout candy taken away in a Trump administration. And despite all that free money, printed at no cost by the fed, shoved over to G.E. and signed on to as debt by unwilling American taxpayers, General Electric continues to ship its jobs overseas.
The establishment corporate media still haven’t figured it out. Every time they pile on Trump and tell our American friends how horrible he is, how many politicians, banksters and other economic parasites, movie stars, jewish financiers and the like are opposed to Trump and warn of the disaster should he be elected president, they merely solidify and strengthen his base!
These anti-Trump corporate robber barons fall under the same category of the 50 “Republican” national security “experts” who signed a letter opposing his accession to office.
The national security “experts,” just as the CEOs, are the same people who screwed things up in the first place. Trump recognizes it, and American voters recognize it.
For the most part, neocon talk radio has fallen into line with Trump, albeit kicking and screaming. The two major hold-outs for the surrender Republicans, Mark Levin and Glenn Beck are paying the price for their opposition to Trump. In Beck’s case, his documented instability doesn’t help, either.
IHeartRadio (formerly ClearChannel) is $20 billion in debt and is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. IHeart / ClearChannel has been the voice of the “establishment” anti-Trump Republicans. And now they are paying the price.
Fortune Magazine is owned by Time-Warner, who also own CNN (aka the Clinton News Network). So their opinion of Trump, the Republican Party and American conservatism overall is altogether irrelevant. Donald Trump is not perfect, but he does represent American mainstream conservatism taking back their party, whether corporate America and the israel-Firsters like it or not (and they most certainly do not).
Corporate Media, the Republican establishment, surrender Republicans like Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, John McCain, etc., dare not utter this phrase during the current campaign: Reagan Democrats. Barring voter fraud on a massive scale, Donald Trump will pick up the support of what’s left of industrial working America and the Bernie Sanders supporters in addition to the entrenched Trump movement. He doesn’t need the old-guard failed Republican establishment.
As for Hillary Clinton, does anybody in the Democratic Party really believe that old hag’s body will actually hold out long enough to even see inauguration in January (should Diebold actually manage to pull it off for you folks)? LettersToTheBeast recommends our Democrat friends look up Weekend at Bernies on Netflix. Or, if you don’t have the time, the Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode, The Magnificent Ferengi.
LettersToTheBeast continues to pray for the well-being of Mr. Trump. Please stay out of small aircraft, open-top convertibles and hotel kitchens.
Corporatists, banksters, israel-Firsters, surrender caucus and the rest of the dinosaur Republicans-In-Name Only: Your time is over.
