    Arrogant British Attendee at Davos "It doesn't matter who the GOP puts up, Hillary wi

    From January 2016.
    Arrogant British Attendee at Davos "It doesn't matter who the GOP puts up, Hillary will be the President of the USA"

    Martin Sorrell: a little too impressed with himself




    Voice of the people be damned.

    With a week until the Iowa caucuses, it would appear that the fix is in – at least if you take the words of some of the world’s most elite to heart.

    It is perhaps no surprise that the Davos elite – which just converged in the snowy Alps – have it out for Trump. Reuters reported that the “Davos elite [are] alarmed at prospect of nominee Trump,” whom they consider “dangerous.”

    Now, one of their attendees, Martin Sorrell – who heads WPP Group, a very powerful advertising and marketing firm that steers hundreds of entities who represent top corporations around the globe – is boldly predicting that Donald Trump will fail, regardless of his overwhelming support from voters.

    In fact, Sorrell and other elitists insiders are snickering and chortling about the demise of his campaign, even as the real estate mogul’s name dominated Davos discussions this year.

    DC Whisper reported on the comments, raising the possibility that Fox News is conspiring to deliver a “kill shot” against Trump:

    It was at that conference that a figure with significant ties to Fox News’ own bottom line let it be known his intention to make certain Donald Trump will never win the White House. His name is Martin Sorrell, a British citizen and head of WPP, quite possibly the single most influential and prominent marketing firm in the world with decades-old ties to the most elite of the elite. Here is what Mr. Sorrell had to say regarding Donald Trump just days ago:

    “It doesn’t matter who the Republicans put up…Hillary will win.”
    […]
    WPP and its myriad of affiliates, represents up to HALF of all Fox News ad revenue. WPP’s clients include such corporate giants as Ford, Glaxo Smith, IBM, Microsoft, Nestle, Walmart, Unilever, etc. – clients who in turn represent tens of millions of dollars in monthly ad revenue that keep the lights of Fox News on and pays the salaries of on-air personalities like Megyn Kelly.

    So when someone like Martin Sorrell signals it doesn’t matter who the Republicans nominate because Hillary Clinton is going to be the next President of the United States regardless, it is a prediction/threat that should be taken very seriously.
    Trump has not only been bucking the establishment, as well as contentious Fox News host Megyn Kelly – but he has also taken on some of the very advertisers that Sorrell represents, and Fox News depends on for their operations.

    Donald Trump has attacked Ford during his campaign, recently claiming that he would impose a 35-40% tariff on them for their Mexico production in order to encourage made-in-America vehicles and American jobs. Whether or not that is realistic, that makes Trump a threat to the establishment, and the CEO of Ford – and likely the CEOs of other offshore corporations – have taken notice.

    The controversial GOP candidate has also taken on the issue of H1-B labor replacing American workers – which pairs with the outsourcing issue – which could rattle the nerves of firms like IBM and Microsoft.

    Also sounding off from the world of Davos was Professor Niall Ferguson, a recurring Bilderberg attendee who wrote authorized biographies on the Rothschild banking dynasty and on Henry Kissinger, who predicted a prime time fail of Trump once the votes are cast. Bloomberg reports:

    “If you bother to read some of the serious analysis of Trump’s support, you realize that it’s a very fragile thing and highly unlikely to deliver what he needs in the crucial first phase of the primaries… By the time we get to March-April, it’s all over. I think there’s going to be a wonderful catharsis, I’m really looking forward to it: Trump’s humiliation. Bring it on.”
    Ferguson stated he is,”… very much looking forward to” the imminent humiliation of Donald Trump, a rather ominous declaration that hints of anan impending “political kill-shot” intended to end the Trump campaign once and for all.

    It is clear that the global establishment indeed perceives Trump as a real threat.

    But do they have an ace in the hole that the American people don’t know about? Well, that is what they do best, mostly from the shadows.

    Don’t rule out the sabotage of the Trump campaign. The bankers own the House, and it is said that the House always wins.

    One thing is certain – voters alone don’t determine the outcome of elections.

    Unless, of course, a voter who is tired of the elite, decides on his own to take out people like Mr. Sorrell, first.

    Davos elite alarmed at prospect of nominee Trump

    DAVOS, SWITZERLAND |
    BY CARMEL CRIMMINS AND MARTINNE GELLER

    "Unbelievable", "embarrassing" even "dangerous" are some of the words the financial elite gathered at the World Economic Forum conference in the Swiss resort of Davos have been using to describe U.S. Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

    Although some said they still expected his campaign to founder before his party picks its nominee for the November election many said it was no longer unthinkable that he could be the Republican candidate.

    Some noted that whatever the outcome, a heated campaign, which has also seen self-proclaimed Socialist Bernie Sanders provide a tough challenge to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, could alter the U.S. political environment, giving vent to new populist anger on both sides of the political divide.

    Trump's nationalist rhetoric, particularly proposals to ban Muslims from entering the United States, tax goods made abroad and build a wall on the Mexican border, were never the sort of thing to appeal to the free trade crowd that typically gathers at events like the annual Davos economic forum.

    Former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan said if Donald Trump wants to be a good negotiator as president, he’ll need to listen more than demanding his own way.

    “Clearly it is not a rhetoric that is inviting for integration," said Chile's Finance Minister, Rodrigo Valdes, referring to his comments on the campaign trail.

    "In Chile we have a deep view that integration of the Americas is a good thing, whether it is goods, financing and yes people. So I’d be happier with a more welcoming rhetoric."

    Among the present and former government officials in the Swiss resort was Eric Cantor, former Republican majority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives, now vice-chairman of Moelis & Co, an investment bank. Like much of the Republican party's establishment, he had cold words for Trump.

    "He's not serious. He's amazing at promoting his personal brand and reflecting an underlying anger at home," Cantor said.
    "Trump Fever is an unsustainable phenomenon that will not translate into a victory for the candidate."

    But for Ray Nolte, chief investment officer of Skybridge Capital, a $13 billion hedge fund whose founder has supported other Republican candidates including Jeb Bush, such establishment pronouncements sound like wishful thinking.

    “Is Donald going to be the nominee? I don’t know. It’s sure looking that way now," Nolte said. "Anyone here (at Davos) who is in the mainstream says there is no way he could possibly get the nomination. When I hear that, it probably means it is going to happen."

    Noting the challenge to Clinton from Sanders, which he said could pull her to the left on issues like financial regulation, Nolte said institutional investors were already paying attention to the prospect of increased U.S. political volatility from the election.

    MAINSTREAMING

    Arianna Huffington, whose Huffington Post news website once insisted on covering Trump, a former reality TV star, as an entertainment figure rather than a politician, said the site reversed its policy once he announced his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States, which made him too "dangerous" to ignore.

    Former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor told Reuters that Donald Trump will not win the Iowa Caucus and his trade policies would hurt American consumers.

    "I feel the mainstreaming of Donald Trump, instead of him being treated as an extreme, dangerous candidate, is really the most troubling aspect of American politics right now," she said.

    "He’s being interviewed on all the main shows, and he’s being asked questions about what his first State of the Union address would be like if he wins, instead of actually being forced to answer the tough questions about his policy, especially his policy of wanting to ban Muslims from entering the U.S., which is so dangerous, so un-American and should really be the center of the coverage of Trump."

    For Dominic Barton, global managing director for business consultancy McKinsey, Trump has turned the political campaign itself into "entertainment", which could hurt the global image of the United States.

    "It’s a bit embarrassing globally. But I think there’s a big difference between the rhetoric and the reality, and I think most people will see that and discount it. But it’s incredible how long its been going for. It’s just unbelievable,” he said.

    But not everyone is worried. Sandeep Dadlani, executive vice president of Indian outsourcing firm Infosys, said his firm has earned the majority of its revenue in the United States for more than 30 years.

    "We have seen many elections come and go. It is common in all election seasons for rhetoric and extreme personalities to shine. Inevitably we have found governments from both sides to eventually come up with sensible policies," he said.

    Harvard University’s Niall Ferguson says the public mood is mad as hell, but he’s not convinced Donald Trump will even make it to Super Tuesday.

    It is clear the former UN Sect'y General is clueless @ superior skills of dealing making that Mr Trump possesses.

    Chile's finance minister, a all out globalist, wants our citizens to lose out & his overpopulation dumped here to take our jobs, produce more populace on welfare & import their goods.

    No thanks, keep your integration of the Americas to yourselves - We are the USA!

    Unreal! Ugly!

    Ferguson is also a Senior Research Fellow of Jesus College, University of Oxford, - How does an ATHIEST get/deserve that job?

    Ferguson was an advisor to John McCain's U.S. presidential campaign in 2008, and announced his support for Mitt Romney in 2012.
    A-ha!

    It is clear that the global establishment indeed perceives Trump as a real threat.
    Yes indee-dee
