“I don’t always agree with Wayne Madsen but I find this article worthy of note. The demonstrators who refuse to accept Trump’s victory are the same who clamor for “safe spaces” on campuses, crying for protection against “offending speech” and who whine about feeling oppressed by the “white males,” but have no problem with the putrid corruption of the oligarchy squeezing the life blood out of working people.” ]

Soros Launching ‘Purple Revolution’ to Oust Trump?
[ Ed. note – The video above is old footage showing Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah making some humorous remarks about John Bolton, who now reportedly is being considered by Donald Trump for the position of secretary of state. Trump would do well to avoid appointing people like Bolton to positions in his administration. It’s not only that Bolton has been the butt of jokes, although that’s part of it–for certainly with people like Bolton in high profile positions in the new administration, America’s standing in the world will continue to plummet downward.
But the other reason, and the main one, is that Bolton is a neocon. Obama surrounded himself with neocon appointees and they ended up sinking his presidency and rendering it a failure. Why would Trump want to do the same? The most likely explanation is that he is trying to reunify the Republican party. Probably he feels the need to mend fences with the Republican elites. But in the article below, Wayne Madsen offers the view–and it’s probably a correct one–that George Soros intends to launch, or in effect has already done so, what would amount to a “color revolution” in America in an effort to destroy Trump’s presidency. And apparently he has already picked the color: purple. The protests are going on in multiple American cities and don’t look like they’re going to let up anytime soon. If Trump fills his administration with neocon appointees, it’s going to set up a situation in which his enemies will be able to attack his administration both from without and within. Trump seems like an intelligent man. I hope he avoids falling into such a trap.

By Wayne Madsen
Defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton is not about to «go quietly into that good night». On the morning after her surprising and unanticipated defeat at the hands of Republican Party upstart Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, entered the ball room of the art-deco New Yorker hotel in midtown Manhattan and were both adorned in purple attire. The press immediately noticed the color and asked what it represented. Clinton spokespeople claimed it was to represent the coming together of Democratic «Blue America» and Republican «Red America» into a united purple blend. This statement was a complete ruse as is known by citizens of countries targeted in the past by the vile political operations of international hedge fund tycoon George Soros.
