JD Vance seems to be the candidate of the day.
He is running for a Senate seat in Ohio.
Suddenly he is everywhere on the media.
He is there on Tucker Carlson. He is there with Charlie Kirk.
These hosts pre-program you by announcing that JD Vance is one of the most insightful and smartest guys around.
How do they know that? Did they grow up with him? Have they worked side-by-side with him for decades?
Or are these hosts just part of Corporate America’s game?
JD Vance of course is the man who wrote the book Hillbilly Elegy which made him a lot of bucks.
JD Vance grew up in hillbilly country but then proceeded on to Yale University where he socialized with a different set of people.
He is positioned as a common man who made good, a common man who can lead the Republican party out of the wilderness.
What do I think of him?
Run away from him.
Run away from him as fast as you possibly can.
He is no common man.
He is no hillbilly anymore.
Perhaps he once was, but he’s not anymore.
He claims to be against corporate power, but it is corporate power and the people behind corporate power, the major universities, that put him where he is.
It was a major publishing house, HarperCollins, that sold 3 million copies of his book.
You don’t get those sales on the force of your own personality. It takes connections with major media to make those kinds of sales.
It’s a fact of life that people like what they know and that they often have to be given permission by the authorities to buy a book.
Authorities: This is a smart person; buy this book.
Sheep: Okay, authorities; I want to be smart too, so I will. I’ll place it on my shelf but never read it.
It was a major university, Yale, that accepted JD Vance into law school.
His wife, a fellow Yale graduate, clerked for Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts.
Usha Chilukuri, his wife, works for an extremely powerful law firm named Munger, Tolles, and Olson. The Munger in that firm is Charles Munger, a principal in the firm Berkshire Hathaway. Charles Munger is also a connected Harvard graduate and a buddy of Warren Buffett who is a buddy of Bill Gates.
JD Vance has access to major media.
He has the backing of Peter Thiel, another connected individual.
That’s a long way from Butcher Holler.
JD Vance owes his bones to corporate power.
He is corporate power.
This comes straight from Wikipedia:
“In 2017, he joined Revolution LLC, an investment firm founded by AOL cofounder Steve Case, as an investment partner, where he was tasked with expanding the “Rise of the Rest” initiative, which focuses on growing investments in under-served regions outside the Silicon Valley and New York City tech bubbles.
Does that sound like a hillbilly to you? Can you see the still and the moonshine?
See how far you get without that corporate power.
You won’t get very far at all.
Is it therefore likely that JD Vance will bite the hand that feeds him?
Despite what comes out of his mouth, he will do what Corporate America tells him to do.
Actions speak louder than words.
If he is really opposed to corporate power, then why did he accept their book deal?
Why did he appear on Tucker Carlson?
Did Jesus go work for the Roman empire?
Did Jesus break bread with Julius Caesar?
Did Jesus work within the system?
JD Vance is another puppet, controlled by Corporate America, to represent the common man for the best interest of Corporate America.
He will do nothing for the common man.
Run away from him.
