Yes, the (global) empire is striking back.
Quite frankly, elections mean absolutely nothing; they are the current opiate of the masses (when we're not consuming actual opium). The powers that be (i.e., oligarchs, bankgangsters, corporate CEOs, and their collaborators in the one percent) are going to enact their agenda no matter whom gets elected.
That's why Obama ad-Dajjal is being paid to disrupt the US government, and why the MSM keeps feeding us a steady stream of lies and distortions.
