A Dem Presidency means The Return of the Blob — Pepe Escobar

Even if DJT wins, the Dem Establishment  will be the backbone of the opposition party, it is worth reading. "You can't tell the players without a score card."

Unlike Pepe, I would not describe the Blob chiefly in terms of the Democratic Establishment and Some GOP Never-Trumpers. I think that is a mistake. There are a lot people in the GOP that are totally on board with the Blob.

The Blob is what "what former CIA analyst Ray McGovern brilliant christened MICIMATT (the Military-Industrial-Congressional-Intelligence-Media-Academia-Think-Tank complex). "The Blob" is synonymous with "the Swamp."

Nor do I buy that Donald Trump and cohort are the shining knights trying to overcome the Blob/Swamp to return democracy to America and "make America great again." This is simply a tussle among elite factions for political control. 

For example, DJT differs in preferring to use the economic clout of the US first before turning to military might but the objective of extending the global reach of the American Empire to benefit the US elite (and their global cronies) are the same.
