As it turns out, America has stepped in a big pile o'mess. Here's a June 12, 2017 segment from the Thom Hartmann program featuring former president Jimmy Carter explaining stuff such as Donald Trump, neoliberalism, and "unresponsive" politicians:

And here's an excerpt that was excerpted in a previous SO'W post:
“Perhaps the most striking feature of the new Administration is the role played in it by the Trilateral Commission. The mass media had little to say about this matter during the Presidential campaign -- in fact, the connection of the Carter group to the Commission was recently selected as "the best censored news story of 1976" -- and it has not received the attention that it might have since the Administration took office. All of the top positions in the government -- the office of President, Vice-President, Secretary of State, Defense and Treasury -- are held by members of the Trilateral Commission, and the National Security Advisor was its director. Many lesser officials also came from this group. It is rare for such an easily identified private group to play such a prominent role in an American Administration.”
