Never betray your friends to court the favor of your enemies. If you betray your friends, the most principled and perceptive among them will drop you, leaving only the delusional and venal. That is not a good trade, given that the approval you gain is bound to be fleeting and contingent, whereas the contempt and distrust you create will be permanent. The people you betrayed may come back to you out of sentimentality or self-interest, but their trust and respect will never return. They will always regard you as a traitor.

Why is such a simple lesson so hard for politicians to understand?

Donald Trump’s dizzying about-face on Syria has won the temporary applause of his enemies, but he has forever lost the respect of his most ardent supporters on the Alt Right, the people who actually believe in and defend his nationalist-populist message, including his America First foreign policy.

I thought Trump’s willingness to fight a two-front war against the Democrats and his own party was sufficient proof that he was sincere about his America First foreign policy. But he ditched it at its first real test.

I no longer trust Donald Trump.

But it is worse than that. I no longer like or respect Trump either. Trump didn’t just betray us. He betrayed us over something utterly stupid. We’ve seen this all before. We’ve seen pictures of dead or injured Syrian children on CNN (although not the victims of US-backed forces). We’ve heard stories of Assad “gassing his own people.” We’ve seen the same vulgar emotional manipulation and ginned-up storms of social signaling. We’ve been asked to start wars based on what some little Syrian Anne Frank allegedly says on Twitter. We know that the press, politicians, and intelligence agencies behind this are trying to topple Assad. We know that they are liars, because they are the same people who lied to get us into the Iraq War. And Trump has seen it all too. He knew better. We know he knew better, because of a long history of Tweets about Syria, which now make him look like a feckless hypocrite. So for him to fall for the warmongers this time frankly makes me question his intelligence, his character, even his sanity.

Beyond that, attacking Assad exacerbates our problems. We want Assad to win this war. We want him to destroy ISIS and other Islamist terrorist groups. We want peace and stability in Syria, so we can send millions of refugees back home, whether they want to go or not. And we certainly do not want heightened tensions with Russia.

Furthermore, Trump’s intervention in Syria is now being used as an argument to admit more Syrian refugees.

Then, there’s the little problem that Trump’s strike was unconstitutional. Wouldn’t it be poetic if Trump gave the establishment the Syrian war they have been trying to start for years — as well as grounds for impeaching him before he manages to slip up and do something good for America?

Finally, why are we even debating retaliations for atrocities committed by Syrians in Syria? Obviously, because no matter what side you come down on, Jews and Israel benefit. They benefit when we actually promote chaos and regime change in Syria. And they benefit even if we end up doing nothing, simply because we not debating, say, retaliating for atrocities committed against whites by Muslims all over Europe, or against whites by blacks in South Africa, or against whites by mestizo invaders in America. Let’s debate regime change in South Africa or Germany or Sweden or Mexico, shall we?

Or better yet, why not focus on America First? Trump has his work cut out for him effecting regime change in Washington, DC.

Some have suggested that Trump changed his Syrian policy out of Machiavellian calculations:

  • To impress/intimidate the President of China, who was dining with him in Florida
  • To impress/intimidate Putin, to make him more tractable in future negotiations
  • To undermine the “Trump is beholden to Putin/the Russians ‘hacked’ the election” narrative that Democrats have been pushing because they are incapable of taking responsibility for Hillary Clinton’s disastrous candidacy
  • To placate Jewish warmongers and their lapdogs like McCain, Rubio, and Graham, as well as their chorus of media shills
  • To get his faltering Presidency back on track by doing something popular with the establishment that opposes him
  • To convince the world that he is a dangerous madman, to make other powers more tractable to US designs

We are also told that the ineffectual nature of the strike was actually part of the plan. The Syrians and Russians were forewarned, expensive equipment was removed, etc. Missiles were allegedly deactivated in flight. (Certainly more comforting than believing that Russian technology shot a lot of them down.) Trump does not want to actually harm Assad. There was no risk of escalation with Russia or Iran. Trump just wants to do one or all of the above.

Frankly, I’m not buying it. None of these theories are half as clever as purported.

  • Russia and China would not be impressed or intimidated by a mere expensive fireworks display that risked nothing. But if Trump tried to hurt Assad and failed, that is hardly impressive or intimidating either, and saving face would require escalation, perhaps into outright war.
  • If Trump warned the Russians and Syrians and did nothing to hurt Assad, it would support, not undermine, the Trump-Russia collusion narrative. It is a meme that the Democrats would rather court nuclear war than take responsibility for their own failure. If Trump actually tried to hurt Assad and risked real escalation with Russia, one has to ask: Is it worth a nuclear war to shut these people’s lying mouths? Trump would have to be mad to think so.
  • If the establishment can get Trump to do its bidding by blocking his policies, it will only continue to stymie Trump until more Danegeld is extorted. Trump surely knows better. It is far too early to declare Trump’s administration a failure. Realistically, I expected him to be stymied by liberals and cucks for a full two years, until the 2018 elections. Trump was never deterred by bad press. How many times was he declared finished in the primaries and election? He didn’t listen before, so why would he start now?
  • Trump has already convinced a significant percentage of the world that he is a dangerous madman. But the Syria pivot does not support that perception. It supports the conclusion that he is a mercurial, hypocritical buffoon who cannot be trusted to maintain his most basic promises. How, exactly, does that make him a more formidable negotiator?

The most plausible explanation for the Syria pivot comes from Seventh Son at The Daily Shoah (Episode #145). When Trump was asked about the gas attack by a reporter at the news conference with King Abdullah of Jordan, he saw it as an opportunity for abusing Obama as a weak little girl for declaring a red line in Syria and then backing down when Assad crossed it rather than acting decisively. When asked if this attack crossed any red lines for him, Trump of course had to agree and amplify, lest he too be a weak little girl like Obama.

In short, Trump painted himself into a corner with his big mouth, his adolescent Alpha posturing, and his fixation on denigrating Obama, and since acknowledging mistakes has never been Trump’s strong suit, it was child’s play for the establishment to spring into action and funnel him into launching airstrikes. The politicians, pundits, and masses are well-programmed with Jewish talking points. All they needed was an opening, then all the tools started whirring for war.

Let’s hope that Trump has realized his mistake and decides to declare victory and turn back to real priorities. Let’s hope that the other players in this game, like Syria, Russia, and Iran let him.

I think Seventh Son’s analysis is correct, and it helps us decode Trump’s whole foreign policy. For a long time, we on the Alt Right were scratching our heads about the great anomaly in Trump’s America First platform, namely Iran. Trump constantly repeated the rankest, most gefilte-fishy neocon talking points on Obama’s Iran deal, which threatened to cause a terrifying outbreak of peace in the region. My hypothesis was that Trump took this stance simply to contradict and abuse Obama.

But, goyische kopf that I am, I assumed that the rest of Trump’s foreign policy — the stuff I agreed with, of course — was sincere. Now I am not so sure. Is Trump’s entire foreign policy agenda simply based on negating Obama’s? What about his domestic policy agenda? Does Trump base his policies not on a sober assessment of what is good for America, but simply on some sort of egomaniacal desire to one-up and put down Barack Obama and his ilk? Granted, doing the opposite of Obama and Hillary is generally a good guide to policy. But you’d have to be an overgrown adolescent chimpanzee to run a country that way. Could this be why Donald Trump is idolized by rappers?

If this is the Trump code, you can bet I am not the first one to crack it. Which means that the establishment now knows how to play Trump. History is one long record of the triumph of the cunning over the macho. Which means that all bets are off for the MAGA agenda. Sure, we might still get some of what he promised, but now a new enemy has emerged from the shadows, perhaps the most formidable one yet: no, not the “Deep State,” but Donald Trump’s own adolescent egomania. (Yes, I know cat ladies have been saying this for years, but they say that about anyone with a scrotum, so they are not to be taken seriously.)

For the Alt Right, it’s Mourning in America. We believed in this guy. We liked this guy. And now he just seems stupid. Frankly, so do we. The day Trump launched his strike, I received the proof copy of my new book In Defense of Prejudice, and I cringed my way through the chapters on Trump. Sure, I can tell myself that it was still right to support him, that Trump is still better than Hillary. So why is he enacting Hillary’s foreign policy? Maybe Martin Heidegger really was the last philosopher with sound political judgment.

I’m a little suspicious at how quickly we on the Alt Right moved to condemn Trump. As soon as I heard that missiles had been fired, my feelings changed completely. The cloud of confusion and anxiety that was building over the previous days suddenly erupted in lightning and thunder. It was a catharsis.

But in truth this break has been a long time in coming. I think that we all felt that Trump was faltering out of the gate, especially with the health care bill. And when people feel that a relationship is doomed, it is quite common to search for a principled pretext to give it a coup de grâce and move forward. It is psychologically easier that way. One maintains one’s sense of agency, which is an important component of one’s self-worth. In short, it is just another case of what I call honorable defeatism. In this case, however, it is a good thing, for two reasons.

First, a lot of us were too emotionally invested in Trump. I thought I had a pretty realistic view of Trump, but this betrayal still came as a brutal blow. It must be a lot worse for the souls who actually thought the Alt Right was responsible for putting Trump into office, who felt that we owned a piece of him. The Alt Right’s relationship with Trump was always a one-way man crush, based largely on projections. Ending such a relationship is a healthy thing.

Second, it helps us refocus on our mission. When Trump was elected, I argued that the Alt Right needs to see itself as Trump’s loyal opposition, the opposition that wants him to succeed in spite of himself. After all, Trump is not one of us. He’s a populist and a civic nationalist with generally good instincts. But he’s not terribly articulate or intellectual, which is one reason he seems to have been so easily misled by the Jews and cuckservatives that opportunistically crowded into his administration. It is our job to offer an intellectually sound and emotionally compelling case for nationalist populism, to help Trump advance his policies, and to help as many Trump supporters as possible advance beyond them to White Nationalism.

Now that the God Emperor has fallen to earth, we need to remind ourselves that Trump was never the end game. He was — and remains — an immense opportunity to smash the current globalist establishment and unleash nationalist, populist, and racialist forces that will be raging into the future, long after Trump is dead. It is our movement, not Trump, that represents the real long-term interests of our race, and we have to start acting like it.

  1. This is a good article, let me just make two points.

    First of all, I think that anyone should’ve realized that Trump was a childish egomaniac obsessed with one-upping people a long time ago. That’s no surprise. Generally, the alt right supported him because of the possibility that that ego could be harnessed to do some good things.

    Second, it goes way too far to say that we got Hillary’s foreign policy, given that the she-beast recently said that she wanted regime change. It is very interesting that the US did not even cater the runway ramp at the Syrian airbase, much to the chagrin of John McCain, and the next day the Syrian regime was hitting rebels from the exact same airbase.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mccain-says-administration-partially-to-blame-for-chemical-attack-in-syria/

    For that resin, I think that it’s not too crazy to believe that Lawrence O’Donnell is right when he, to great mockery, said that perhaps Trump collaborated with Putin to change the subject from the Russian narrative.

    http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/04/07/msnbcs-odonnell-maybe-putin-masterminded-chemical-attack-so-trump-could-look-good-by-striking-syria/

    The attack on Syria did literally nothing to change the balance of power on the battlefield, yet he killed the collusion with Russia story and got universal praise from the establishment for whatever his next move is.

    I don’t claim to know what’s going on, or what Trump’s true motivations are. I think he’s an egomaniacal buffoon, but with instincts that are sound compared to the rest of the establishment. And I think that it’s too early to denounce him as a traitor and a fool, given the limited nature of the strike. Let’s wait and see.

    Certainly not "way" too far. What we have now is at least Obama's foreign policy. Whether Hilary would actually have gone any further yet rather depends upon whether when it came down to it she and her advisers would have had the bottle to do what she claimed ought to be done - by no means certain.

    This is Trump's Syria policy, as of last Thursday:

    No peace in Syria until Assad is ousted, says Nikki Haley

    "Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, has said that she sees regime change in Syria as one of the Trump administration’s priorities in the country wracked by civil war.

    Defeating Islamic State, pushing Iranian influence out of Syria, and the ousting of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad are priorities for Washington, Haley said in an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, which will air in full on Sunday.

    “There’s not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime,” Haley said, while reiterating that defeating Isis was still the number one policy goal. “If you look at his actions, if you look at the situation, it’s going to be hard to see a government that’s peaceful and stable with Assad.”

    “Regime change is something that we think is going to happen.”
    "
    , @Don bass
    The US is violating Syrian sovereignty every day on the pretext of "defeating ISIS".
    You know, the guys (and they are mostly military males) who chop peoples heads off, burn them alive, throw people from buildings ..... Bad guys. Right?
    The Syrian army/airforce is trying to eradicate these monsters from their country.
    To do so they need a functioning airfield. So when you say: It's very interesting that the US did not even cater the runway ramp at the Syrian airbase, much to the chagrin of John McCain, and the next day the Syrian regime was hitting rebels from the exact same airbase.

    Surely that's a good thing????
    And:
    The attack on Syria did literally nothing to change the balance of power on the battlefield......
    Again- THIS is a GOOD thing.

    The real,problem of course is that ISIS is a mercenary force constructed by US+Israel+Qatar to force a gas pipeline through the country. Israel also wants Syria partitioned and weakened as per the Yinon Plan. Because the Syrian govt (assisted by the Russian Federation) is about to defeat ISIS, the US interests are being unmasked as the "real" owners of this diabolical evil.

    True. Greg Johnson is under appreciated. He lacks the shameless self-promotion gene Richard Spencer, Cernovich, Gavin McInnes, Alex Jones, etc, etc have. I'm far more of a Russophile and less of a White Nationalist than Johnson but I like his stuff.
  3. Don’t forget that change agent Bannon was sidelined and replaced by his very young Jewish son-in-law, who inexplicably went to Iraq to confer with our Generals just before this senseless attack.

    To make it worse, Hillary publicly called for bombing Syrian airfields a few hours before it happened:

    Then crazy McCain praised the attack and demanded more attacks:

    This is like a husband cheating on his spouse less soon after marriage. Voters don’t like getting dissed during the honeymoon. Did someone show Trump secret film of the grassy knoll?

    my wild shot in the dark is that the syrian attack was what was needed for the supreme court judge vote :)
  4. Xi Jinping, a very busy guy, flew halfway around the world for a private, overnight visit to President Trump’s home where he is protected from bugging by his own security staff. No agenda was released and there were no negotiations. It was not a state visit and reporters were excluded.

    Over dinner, Trump told Xi that he had ordered a $100 million missile attack on an abandoned airport in Syria and that he had informed President Putin in advance. Xi didn’t criticize it and Putin said he’s looking forward to Trump’s Moscow visit. This morning Trump’s Secretary of State announced that it is up to the Syrian people to choose Assad as their leader if they wish–which has been Russia’s policy all along.

    After the meeting, Trump was ecstatic about the ‘wonderful new relationship’ with China.

    Trump was elected on an essentially anti-war platform–the quickest way for an American president to get assassinated or impeached–and calls for his assassination and impeachment began immediately.

    Putin and Xi want peace and are willing to spend and do almost anything for it.

    Look for China to create a million new jobs in the USA over the next 12 months: it’s something they’re very good at and a trillion dollar investment to accomplish it would be cheap. And look for Putin to do everything in his power to support The Donald.

    Maybe it's true and I hope your final analysis is spot on. All I do know that the airbase damage was very, very limited. Quite the opposite outcome from 59 SLCM's hammering it.

    Aspects of the attack just don't add up. And even the Russians seem to be in on it.

    Money quote. It's quite amazing the positive reception he got from the establishment when ordered the attack on the airbase. You could even see the staff at FoxNews get a bit giggly over it. Very bloodthirsty lot and very scary as well because of what it implies.

    That said, it did initially look like Trump would be gone before July or thereabouts. The hostility was quite overt. I think it sunk into Trump very early on that he had no friends in D.C. except his family and long time associates. The intel agencies made it quite clear that either Trump gets on board with the program or else - hence the talk of impeachment and that Trump was not qualified to hold office that spun out of his resistance to buy their line of shit..

    Also the behavior of the establishment or cloud people shows they prefer war and upheaval in the world over peace.
    , @Randal

    Putin and Xi want peace and are willing to spend and do almost anything for it.
     
    Undoubtedly so, but I doubt either man is stupid enough to seek it by appeasement.

    If a deal is sought, the primary goal should be to establish the US as a trustworthy partner, rather than the kind of aggressive and dangerous power it has been in the past - the opposite of the impression created by Trump's immature and irrational lashing out over Syria.

    Both Xi and Putin are presumably too bright not to recognise that whatever deal they do with Trump is hostage to the shifting power balance in Washington, where many of the most influential lobbies and factions are fully committed to hostile policies against either Russia or China, or both. Trump will be gone in 4 years, whatever China and Russia do (short of an abject surrender that won't be forthcoming).

    Undoubtedly both Russia and China will do whatever deals they can without letting their guards down, because stability is in both their interests. But they won't do anything to fundamentally change the trajectory of the US for the next few years, and certainly Trump's actions last week didn't do anything to advance relations - quite the opposite in fact.

    We will probably see the Russians taking stock and finally abandoning any hopes they had of a saner US regime, and ultimately hardening their stances in Syria and elsewhere. As for China, it will now know that the US president cannot be relied upon not to do something dangerously irresponsible in North Korea and will now have to take appropriate measures. However those measures can't be assumed to be ones the US hawks will welcome.
    , @DaveE
    Henry Kissinger's visit with Trump (before his inauguration) might also support your theory. Someone, I think it may have been Zero Hedge, claimed that Kissinger urged Trump to cozy up with China and set up a rift with Putin.

    Either way, it's been clear for some time that Putin is the Tribe's Public Enemy #1.

    I think you may be onto something.

  7. The pivotal question is did Assad really order the chemical attack. From what I’ve seen the consensus is no.

    What happens when this is proven to be true? How will Trump respond? Can he claim that he was misled by the intelligence community, the Deep State that have been working to remove Assad for years?

    Is it too much to hope that he can use this as a reason to begin draining the swamp in earnest?

    Only if you think the US should be the self-appointed world policeman.

    Even if Assad did order a chemical attack (which is self-evidently absurd), and even if you think the US being the world's policeman is a great idea (which is stupid because the US has neither the power nor the honesty to do so effectively), it was still totally wrong to respond the way Trump and the US regime did:

    They attacked within two days, long before even the pretence of acting on the basis of anything more than unfounded allegations from untrustworthy sources was credible.

    The attack was a straightforward breach of international law, and the US's treaty obligations.

    The attack was almost certainly in breach of the US constitution, for whatever that is worth these days.

    These things will come back to bite Trump and the US, once all the initial hysterical arousal from neocons and other bomb-lovers subsides.

    No I don’t have much else to add to this.

    But if we had a ruling class with any degree of sanity and long-term interest in the nation, we would not be where we are now.

    Suggestion: remember that Italian cruise ship captain who abandoned ship before his passengers were safe? I suggest that our oligarchs (people with net worths of > 100 million dollars) AND THEIR FAMILIES not be allowed to leave the country, even if it all turns to shit.

    I had exactly the same thought as I finished reading this piece. Since his election, Trump has got very squishy about fulfilling campaign promises and even, as in this case, openly reneged and done the opposite of what he promised. Before I'll consider supporting him in any way ever again Trump will have to deliver big time and quickly on campaign promises. A good place to start would be "draining the swamp" by rooting out and dismissing every Zionist neocon Israeli agent in the federal government, starting with his useless son-in-law.

    Evidence?

    Since when did Washington need or ask for China's permission to sail its carriers about the Pacific? If you are saying China has meekly agreed to let the US do in China's backyard what Washington has done in the Middle East so effectively for the past 15 years - create mass murderous chaos with stupid (or evil, if you assume they've done it on purpose) military idiocy - then I think that needs rather more backup than just pulling it out of your backside.

    There's a valid question as to what China can actually do to prevent a loose cannon like Trump from creating that kind of murderous havoc in its backyard. That remains to be seen. But that's a long way from their approving it or acquiescing to it.

    2. Putin made a lot of noise but I bet he even meets the Texan in Moscovy this week when Rex comes a callin’.
     
    Most likely results of Trump's emotional spasm:

    Russia doubles down on support for Syria, and as already announced beefs up both Russian and Syrian air defences in the region.

    Russia finally gives up trying to cooperate with the US in Syria and recognises that appeasement is useless, as already commenced with the ending of sharing info about air movements.

    Trump is now going to be judged as Obama was judged by whether or not he succeeds in regime change in Syria. If he fails, it's another bloody nose for the US and he's an incompetent buffoon. If he succeeds, Syria gets handed over to jihadists and he has to handle the consequences.

    A lose-lose strategy. Well done. Trump and the US establishment. masterful strategery.
  12. In fairness, Trump has never said he is a nationalist, nor does he support any particular ideology. And he was always unreliable on foreign policy. Most people who voted for him, accepted that he might stuff on foreign policy (polls before the election showed voters rated highest on the economy and lowest on foreign policy).

    I see Trump as an interregnum president, like a Nixon or Carter. Left liberalism and neoliberalism have peaked and we’re now entering an ideologically messy period where various ideological viewpoints are battling for control. That maybe frustrating for nationalists but at least its better than living in a liberal hegemony.

Never mind the fact that he is a nazi and his dog is named Rockwell, and not for Norman by the way, GJ is one of the worst reps of WN and is one of the reasons I no longer call myself a WN, Spencer being the other reason fundamentally, plus a cast of extras who are more or less me-tooers.

    As for Trump being a God That Failed, this expresses the delusional aspect. Trump was never more than a Great Opening Act for the Counter-Evolution and in that respect, he still is.

    Counter-Revolution, like Revolution, as in 1789 and its course all the way to the present, is not to be considered as anything but a process. We are in the First Act with more than just 3, say, acts to follow.

    Trump had the requisite Big Balls to go after the GOP Establishment and the lib-rad media. He still has that testicular fortitude and thus there is more to come, like bombing N. Korea's Big Bomb/Missile capability. This of course with permission from China and Russia.

    That would be a major accomplishment.

    As for his Israel love, we will see. The current news is bad, and I am unhappy about it, but there is no reason to give up on Trump.

    He has successfully beaten off his critics, thereby gaining time. Those who point out that the cruise missile attack was largely theater, are correct. He got Russian compliance, etc. And that is very important inasmuch as it is Realistic. How many divisions do the muzzies have.?..kinda thing..
    So the terrorism continues, and as Bibi put it, that is Very Good for us, the counter-revolution.

    The Trump economics, while enjoying a shot in the arm from rhetoric...the stock market....probably will not work out too well, as Dr. Phil would put it. Supply Side economics assumes that working people have money in their pockets. Chicken and Egg. My view is that money in pockets comes first, not gadgets produced in fanciful expectations of deep worker's pockets.

    Trump , as all the pundits correctly point out, must successfully address jobs and pay. If his putative nationalist economics does not pay off, and especially if we have the overdue recession, the First Act of counter-revolution will be over and it will be Next!

    Xi Jinping, a very busy guy, flew halfway around the world for a private, overnight visit to President Trump's home where he is protected from bugging by his own security staff. No agenda was released and there were no negotiations. It was not a state visit and reporters were excluded.

    Over dinner, Trump told Xi that he had ordered a $100 million missile attack on an abandoned airport in Syria and that he had informed President Putin in advance. Xi didn't criticize it and Putin said he's looking forward to Trump's Moscow visit. This morning Trump's Secretary of State announced that it is up to the Syrian people to choose Assad as their leader if they wish–which has been Russia's policy all along.

    After the meeting, Trump was ecstatic about the 'wonderful new relationship' with China.

    Trump was elected on an essentially anti-war platform–the quickest way for an American president to get assassinated or impeached–and calls for his assassination and impeachment began immediately.

    Putin and Xi want peace and are willing to spend and do almost anything for it.

    Look for China to create a million new jobs in the USA over the next 12 months: it's something they're very good at and a trillion dollar investment to accomplish it would be cheap. And look for Putin to do everything in his power to support The Donald.

    Maybe it’s true and I hope your final analysis is spot on. All I do know that the airbase damage was very, very limited. Quite the opposite outcome from 59 SLCM’s hammering it.

    Aspects of the attack just don’t add up. And even the Russians seem to be in on it.

    Trump was elected on an essentially anti-war platform–the quickest way for an American president to get assassinated or impeached–and calls for his assassination and impeachment began immediately.

    Money quote. It’s quite amazing the positive reception he got from the establishment when ordered the attack on the airbase. You could even see the staff at FoxNews get a bit giggly over it. Very bloodthirsty lot and very scary as well because of what it implies.

    That said, it did initially look like Trump would be gone before July or thereabouts. The hostility was quite overt. I think it sunk into Trump very early on that he had no friends in D.C. except his family and long time associates. The intel agencies made it quite clear that either Trump gets on board with the program or else – hence the talk of impeachment and that Trump was not qualified to hold office that spun out of his resistance to buy their line of shit..

    Also the behavior of the establishment or cloud people shows they prefer war and upheaval in the world over peace.

  18. Good article.

    A few points about Trump that have become increasingly clear:
    - Trump has no real views or policies. He just has attitudes and infatuations. His flip-flop on Syria was a sincere change in attitude brought on by a surge of emotion. He is not mendacious and treacherous. Rather, he is fickle and superficial. I don’t say this to excuse but to describe him. What he did was disgusting.
    - Trump is in over his head. His incredible ability to manipulate the media and put on a good show won him the White House – but it looks like despite his vaunted business executive experience, he is having trouble getting things done. His travel ban got shut down by the judges. His healthcare reform got shot down by his own party. His Russian rapprochement is in tatters. One of his key picks – Flynn – was thrown out like a dog; and his key adviser Bannon appears to be on the way out.
    - Trump is making things up as he goes along. Just as he has attitudes rather than principles, so does he have slogans rather than plans. Since making slogans is easy but realizing plans is hard, we will begin to see him deviate further and further from his slogans in order to achieve any concrete goals.
    - Ivanka and Jared have way too much influence, and may be on a bit of a power trip.

    All in all, this has been a rough week. Huge kudos to all Trump supporters who decried the Syrian bombing.

  20. Alt-Right adjusts to Trump sell-out … Jared Kushner & Mossad … Trump bullying of China’s Xi

    Fascinating how quickly Trump’s Alt-Right supporters are digesting his sell-out & starting to move beyond Trump, noting how super-salesman Trump during his campaign, ‘destroyed the Deep State in eyes of voters’, & ‘that was sufficient from Trump’, there is no reversing this … ‘Trump has already done most of his part, great work exposing the evil institutions that are murdering us & destroying the world, & neither the [media] nor the deep state will ever recover from the 2016 election in the eyes of working & middle class people … [& despite Trump's sell-out - betrayal - corruption] anything more is just a bonus’

    The apparent shadow President – Rasputin – Svengali, not the now-nearly-discarded Bannon, but Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has been raising funds for the Israeli military (Haaretz) … Kushner & Ivanka Trump joined a (Mossad-tied) Chabad Synagogue attended by Israeli government ministers, & bought a house a short walk away from it (also near Obama’s DC house) … Kushner & Ivanka’s synagogue is TheShul led by Rabbi Levi Shemtov, attended by many leading Jewish & Israeli officials, ‘including former senator Joe Lieberman & current Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, several Jewish ambassadors posted in Washington, & Israeli Cabinet ministers from the Orthodox parties’ … So every Sabbath Kushner can walk over to receive his Mossad instructions

    Jared Kushner’s assistant is (Mr) Avi Berkowitz, cousin of Howard Friedman, the ‘first Orthodox Jewish President of AIPAC, the most influential Jewish lobbying group in the US’

    90 Jewish rabbis asked Trump to attack Syria & kill Syrians the day before he did so, & Donald Trump (President Trump-Kushner) was pleased to grant their request, letter & long list of signing rabbis on the Jewish ‘Forward’ site

    Another aspect of the Syrian attack was Trump’s double insult & humiliation of China’s President Xi, who was visiting Trump in Florida as the missiles landed … the timing was no accident, but a specific insult & threat to the Chinese President by Trump & his Jared Kushner / Gary Cohn junta

    Acting just like a New York mob thug bully, Trump smugly announced to Xi that attacks were underway as they spoke, Trump threatening deaths amongst China’s close public ally Russia, in other words menacing Xi right to his face … Trump then doubled Xi’s humiliation by menacing China’s next door neighbour & half-protégé North Korea, Trump sending warships towards NK as President Xi took his flight back to China … If you know Asians & their concept of ‘face’ & being treated with respect, you will understand how major this is

    China is holding fire, but for Xi & China, it’s clear that President Trump-Kushner is a low-life deserving no respect or trust whatsoever, & that USA gov has gone over the edge … No wonder some say ‘Trump is a faux president & stalking horse who has been installed to bring down what’s left of the U.S. system & economy’ (NewNationalist), i.e., Trump’s task is to just collapse America & maybe blow up the world too

    Sorry, but I’m not buying the author here.

    Trump is not stupid. He did not fall for some stunt, and he wasn’t tricked by anyone. He knew exactly what he is doing.

    Keep in mind that Trump has visited with several ME leaders recently. And what do you think they talked about? Most likely the Syria problem and how much better all parties would be if they got rid of Asad.

    Who are his economic advisors? Goldman guys who understand how the petrodollar dollar works.

    So Trump basically figured that the best way to promote American interests, and (((other))) interests as well would be to support the petrodollar dollar in order to prevent a collapse and to protect his friends in Isreal.

    That is how he is framing bombing Asad with MAGA.

  25. @Jeremy Cooper
    This is a good article, let me just make two points.

    First of all, I think that anyone should've realized that Trump was a childish egomaniac obsessed with one-upping people a long time ago. That's no surprise. Generally, the alt right supported him because of the possibility that that ego could be harnessed to do some good things.

    Second, it goes way too far to say that we got Hillary's foreign policy, given that the she-beast recently said that she wanted regime change. It is very interesting that the US did not even cater the runway ramp at the Syrian airbase, much to the chagrin of John McCain, and the next day the Syrian regime was hitting rebels from the exact same airbase.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mccain-says-administration-partially-to-blame-for-chemical-attack-in-syria/

    For that resin, I think that it's not too crazy to believe that Lawrence O'Donnell is right when he, to great mockery, said that perhaps Trump collaborated with Putin to change the subject from the Russian narrative.

    http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/04/07/msnbcs-odonnell-maybe-putin-masterminded-chemical-attack-so-trump-could-look-good-by-striking-syria/

    The attack on Syria did literally nothing to change the balance of power on the battlefield, yet he killed the collusion with Russia story and got universal praise from the establishment for whatever his next move is.

    I don't claim to know what's going on, or what Trump's true motivations are. I think he's an egomaniacal buffoon, but with instincts that are sound compared to the rest of the establishment. And I think that it's too early to denounce him as a traitor and a fool, given the limited nature of the strike. Let's wait and see.

    Second, it goes way too far to say that we got Hillary’s foreign policy, given that the she-beast recently said that she wanted regime change.

    Certainly not “way” too far. What we have now is at least Obama’s foreign policy. Whether Hilary would actually have gone any further yet rather depends upon whether when it came down to it she and her advisers would have had the bottle to do what she claimed ought to be done – by no means certain.

    This is Trump’s Syria policy, as of last Thursday:

    No peace in Syria until Assad is ousted, says Nikki Haley

    Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, has said that she sees regime change in Syria as one of the Trump administration’s priorities in the country wracked by civil war.

    Defeating Islamic State, pushing Iranian influence out of Syria, and the ousting of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad are priorities for Washington, Haley said in an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, which will air in full on Sunday.

    “There’s not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime,” Haley said, while reiterating that defeating Isis was still the number one policy goal. “If you look at his actions, if you look at the situation, it’s going to be hard to see a government that’s peaceful and stable with Assad.”

    “Regime change is something that we think is going to happen.”“

    We can call it Obama's foreign policy when he's overthrown a dictator. All he gave us was one airstrike that, again, had no military effect on the conflict.

    Agree that Haley is awful, but Tillerson is much better and restrained. We still have an administration that is less hardline on Assad than just about anyone in Washington. If a few meaningless bombs get them to shut up about Russia collusion and freed him up to make a deal with Putin, this will have turned out to have been a brilliant move.

    The alt right is acting like he just unilaterally gave amnesty to all illegal immigrants. This is not the end of the world. If it leads to real regime change, I'll be first to agree with the harshest criticisms of Trump in this article.
  26. Personally, I don’t really think this strike was Trump’s decision. If you look at the ongoing flip flop among US top officials of wether Assad should go or not, then the most reasonable explanation seems to be that there’s a fierce power struggle going on between Pentagon and White House/State Department.

    RT just released an article: https://www.rt.com/usa/384153-syria-confusion-tillerson-haley-trump/

    Traditionally DoS and Pentagon have always been at odds, which has always created some sort of an inconsistent foreign policy of the US. Hitlery, when she was chief cunt of the DoS, “fixed” that, when she militarized the DoS.

    http://newsvandal.com/2014/06/hillary-clinton-and-the-weaponization-of-the-state-department/

    But now Trump had drained some swamp at the State Department by firing top officials and Hitlery brown-nosers. Tillerson is with him, but he left the Pentagon still under neo-nazi-con control, probably to appease them. But this was stupid, he should have gone all the way. Instead, he fired Michael Flynn – again for unnecessary appeasement. The result now is, that he has to deal with a defiant war ministry.

    As it looks like, we have White House and State Department on one side, and Pentagon and the stupidity community (CIA, NSA etc.) on the other.

    What I think happened is simply this:

    The Pentagon told him, we’re gonna take the chance of this incident and fire some missiles senselessly into Syria and there’s nothing you can do about it. Trump, the narcissist that he is or because he didn’t want his office to appear weak, just went with it. The better option would have been to go public immediately denouncing the defiance of his war pushers. But probably the Pentagon had plausible deniability and so Trump didn’t have a chance.

    The Pentagon needs to be drained urgently or we’re all gonna die at some point.

    Putin and Xi want peace and are willing to spend and do almost anything for it.

    Undoubtedly so, but I doubt either man is stupid enough to seek it by appeasement.

    If a deal is sought, the primary goal should be to establish the US as a trustworthy partner, rather than the kind of aggressive and dangerous power it has been in the past – the opposite of the impression created by Trump’s immature and irrational lashing out over Syria.

    Both Xi and Putin are presumably too bright not to recognise that whatever deal they do with Trump is hostage to the shifting power balance in Washington, where many of the most influential lobbies and factions are fully committed to hostile policies against either Russia or China, or both. Trump will be gone in 4 years, whatever China and Russia do (short of an abject surrender that won’t be forthcoming).

    Undoubtedly both Russia and China will do whatever deals they can without letting their guards down, because stability is in both their interests. But they won’t do anything to fundamentally change the trajectory of the US for the next few years, and certainly Trump’s actions last week didn’t do anything to advance relations – quite the opposite in fact.

    We will probably see the Russians taking stock and finally abandoning any hopes they had of a saner US regime, and ultimately hardening their stances in Syria and elsewhere. As for China, it will now know that the US president cannot be relied upon not to do something dangerously irresponsible in North Korea and will now have to take appropriate measures. However those measures can’t be assumed to be ones the US hawks will welcome.

  31. Never betray your friends to court the favor of your enemies.

    That certainly seems to be one motivation for Trump’s sudden turnabout and stab in the back to his supporters on Syria. We should have seen this coming when the deep state purged Mike Flynn and used selective “leaks” to paint a false picture of Trump as Putin surrogate and stooge. And the daily attacks and hectoring from both Repub and Dems and the media that he’s soft on Russia. IMO, this was all designed to bring Trump into the neocon regime change fold and it worked.

    Trump’s actions have met with raucous applause by Jewish neocons and their goy wonders like Rubio and McCain .

    He was — and remains — an immense opportunity to smash the current globalist establishment and unleash nationalist, populist, and racialist forces

    Um, maybe, but my opinion of him has now changed. If he can flip on foreign policy then he can flip on all his other signature issues most notably immigration. What happens when his limousine liberal princess Ivanka and hubby (((Jared Kushnere))) complain that deporting too many illegal aliens is heartless and un-American or that not accepting anything less than 250K Muslim refugees a year is insensitive and bigoted?

    The promise and hope that Trump gave us is slowly fading and his presidency is quickly shaping up to be more invade the world, invite the world and business and usual. President Trump could wind up being the antithesis of candidate Trump.

Many of those on the Alt Right are projecting their disdain and fear of a second Iraq war on to this event, and I think that’s off base.

    If early reports are to be believed, Trump has clearly given ICE a freer hand in cracking down on illegal immigration. Furthermore, by putting Carson at HUD and Sessions at the justice department, he has stopped the emerging bipartisan cuckservative/leftist effort to let violent blacks out of prison as part of so called “criminal justice reform,” and then forcibly integrate them into white neighborhoods through housing quotas in order to reduce so-called “neighborhood inequality.” That means fewer white people raped and murdered. So no, he’s not the “God Emperor,” but, flawed though he may be, he has done some good things for white people, if only by blocking the ability of the left to do them harm. We should not forget that.

    Obama/Clinton policy 2011-2017: there can be no peace in Syria with Assad in charge. Regime change.

    Trump policy prior to him seeing some nasty photos, 2016-4/4/17:

    'One of the more incredible statements I've ever heard': John McCain rips Tillerson's shift on Syria

    "The remark signaled a shift in the US's official position toward the Syrian strongman.....The US's ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, took an even stronger position than Tillerson, telling reporters that the administration's "priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting Assad out." Haley's comments stood in stark contrast to those of the previous UN ambassador, Samantha Power, who directly confronted Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies during a UN Security Council meeting in December with a fierce address."

    Trump's policy after his Syria spasm 4/4/17-?:

    Haley: No political solution in Syria with Assad in power

    It's a lot more than just a symbolic murder of a few Syrians.

    Will anyone really remember this in a few years, or even in a few months? Many of those on the Alt Right are projecting their disdain and fear of a second Iraq war on to this event, and I think that’s off base.
     
    Some might be concerned about yet more US troops on the ground in Syria, but most of the concern I've seen is that US policy is once again aligned with jihadists and against the only plausible alternative force to islamists in Syria, when the US should be staying out and letting Syria and its allies clean house.

    As I've noted before here, Trump and the US regime have wholly unnecessarily put the US back squarely into the lose-lose policy position of the Obama/Clinton years: fail to regime change Syria and waste lots of money only to be seen as a failure, succeed in regime changing Syria and hand the rest of the country (including most of the big population centres so far kept out of direct fighting) over to bloody jihadist chaos if not open islamist rule.

    Well I wouldn't say 'swindling idiots' but these hysterical alt right boys have to calm down. Yes it seems that Trump played right into the hands of McNuts and even SHillary but it's a long game and even some of his most virulent opponents in the Neocoen tribe and shitlib sect were left without much wind after this 'retaliatory strike'.
    And:
    1. The Chinese leader acquiesced to American moves in Arabia and more importantly carrier movements against Kim Chung Fat in Korea.
    2. Putin made a lot of noise but I bet he even meets the Texan in Moscovy this week when Rex comes a callin'.
    3. O'Bannon hasn't been exiled to Siberia, he's still there at the WH.

    So all you Nancy boy alt righters sit down, have a root beer and don't fly off the handle, our 'Emperor' is doing okay even if his son in law is 'in the house'.

    1. The Chinese leader acquiesced to American moves in Arabia and more importantly carrier movements against Kim Chung Fat in Korea.

    Evidence?

    Since when did Washington need or ask for China’s permission to sail its carriers about the Pacific? If you are saying China has meekly agreed to let the US do in China’s backyard what Washington has done in the Middle East so effectively for the past 15 years – create mass murderous chaos with stupid (or evil, if you assume they’ve done it on purpose) military idiocy – then I think that needs rather more backup than just pulling it out of your backside.

    There’s a valid question as to what China can actually do to prevent a loose cannon like Trump from creating that kind of murderous havoc in its backyard. That remains to be seen. But that’s a long way from their approving it or acquiescing to it.

    2. Putin made a lot of noise but I bet he even meets the Texan in Moscovy this week when Rex comes a callin’.

    Most likely results of Trump’s emotional spasm:

    Russia doubles down on support for Syria, and as already announced beefs up both Russian and Syrian air defences in the region.

    Russia finally gives up trying to cooperate with the US in Syria and recognises that appeasement is useless, as already commenced with the ending of sharing info about air movements.

    Trump is now going to be judged as Obama was judged by whether or not he succeeds in regime change in Syria. If he fails, it’s another bloody nose for the US and he’s an incompetent buffoon. If he succeeds, Syria gets handed over to jihadists and he has to handle the consequences.

    A lose-lose strategy. Well done. Trump and the US establishment. masterful strategery.

    The pivotal question is did Assad really order the chemical attack. From what I’ve seen the consensus is no.

    What happens when this is proven to be true? How will Trump respond? Can he claim that he was misled by the intelligence community, the Deep State that have been working to remove Assad for years?

    Is it too much to hope that he can use this as a reason to begin draining the swamp in earnest?

  37. Dec 6, 2016 Gen. Mattis: Can Trump Leash His Pentagon ‘Mad Dog’?

    President-elect Trump’s choice of Gen. James Mattis to be Defense Secretary has raised more than a few eyebrows. Not only as a military officer in a traditionally civilian position, but also as an executive at a leading defense contractor. His views on Iran are also considered extreme and not grounded in reality. Will the mad dog be leashed?

    Good article.

    A few points about Trump that have become increasingly clear:
    - Trump has no real views or policies. He just has attitudes and infatuations. His flip-flop on Syria was a sincere change in attitude brought on by a surge of emotion. He is not mendacious and treacherous. Rather, he is fickle and superficial. I don't say this to excuse but to describe him. What he did was disgusting.
    - Trump is in over his head. His incredible ability to manipulate the media and put on a good show won him the White House - but it looks like despite his vaunted business executive experience, he is having trouble getting things done. His travel ban got shut down by the judges. His healthcare reform got shot down by his own party. His Russian rapprochement is in tatters. One of his key picks - Flynn - was thrown out like a dog; and his key adviser Bannon appears to be on the way out.
    - Trump is making things up as he goes along. Just as he has attitudes rather than principles, so does he have slogans rather than plans. Since making slogans is easy but realizing plans is hard, we will begin to see him deviate further and further from his slogans in order to achieve any concrete goals.
    - Ivanka and Jared have way too much influence, and may be on a bit of a power trip.

    All in all, this has been a rough week. Huge kudos to all Trump supporters who decried the Syrian bombing.

    Well said.

    Initially, I felt betrayed by Trump’s missile strike as well. However, the strike seems to have been an isolated and relatively mild military action. Will anyone really remember this in a few years, or even in a few months? Many of those on the Alt Right are projecting their disdain and fear of a second Iraq war on to this event, and I think that’s off base.

    If early reports are to be believed, Trump has clearly given ICE a freer hand in cracking down on illegal immigration. Furthermore, by putting Carson at HUD and Sessions at the justice department, he has stopped the emerging bipartisan cuckservative/leftist effort to let violent blacks out of prison as part of so called “criminal justice reform,” and then forcibly integrate them into white neighborhoods through housing quotas in order to reduce so-called “neighborhood inequality.” That means fewer white people raped and murdered. So no, he’s not the “God Emperor,” but, flawed though he may be, he has done some good things for white people, if only by blocking the ability of the left to do them harm. We should not forget that.

    Initially, I felt betrayed by Trump’s missile strike as well. However, the strike seems to have been an isolated and relatively mild military action.

    Obama/Clinton policy 2011-2017: there can be no peace in Syria with Assad in charge. Regime change.

    Trump policy prior to him seeing some nasty photos, 2016-4/4/17:

    ‘One of the more incredible statements I’ve ever heard’: John McCain rips Tillerson’s shift on Syria

    The remark signaled a shift in the US’s official position toward the Syrian strongman…..The US’s ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, took an even stronger position than Tillerson, telling reporters that the administration’s “priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting Assad out.” Haley’s comments stood in stark contrast to those of the previous UN ambassador, Samantha Power, who directly confronted Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies during a UN Security Council meeting in December with a fierce address.

    Trump’s policy after his Syria spasm 4/4/17-?:

    Haley: No political solution in Syria with Assad in power

    It’s a lot more than just a symbolic murder of a few Syrians.

    Will anyone really remember this in a few years, or even in a few months? Many of those on the Alt Right are projecting their disdain and fear of a second Iraq war on to this event, and I think that’s off base.

    Some might be concerned about yet more US troops on the ground in Syria, but most of the concern I’ve seen is that US policy is once again aligned with jihadists and against the only plausible alternative force to islamists in Syria, when the US should be staying out and letting Syria and its allies clean house.

    As I’ve noted before here, Trump and the US regime have wholly unnecessarily put the US back squarely into the lose-lose policy position of the Obama/Clinton years: fail to regime change Syria and waste lots of money only to be seen as a failure, succeed in regime changing Syria and hand the rest of the country (including most of the big population centres so far kept out of direct fighting) over to bloody jihadist chaos if not open islamist rule.

    1. The Chinese leader acquiesced to American moves in Arabia and more importantly carrier movements against Kim Chung Fat in Korea.
     
    Evidence?

    Since when did Washington need or ask for China's permission to sail its carriers about the Pacific? If you are saying China has meekly agreed to let the US do in China's backyard what Washington has done in the Middle East so effectively for the past 15 years - create mass murderous chaos with stupid (or evil, if you assume they've done it on purpose) military idiocy - then I think that needs rather more backup than just pulling it out of your backside.

    There's a valid question as to what China can actually do to prevent a loose cannon like Trump from creating that kind of murderous havoc in its backyard. That remains to be seen. But that's a long way from their approving it or acquiescing to it.

    2. Putin made a lot of noise but I bet he even meets the Texan in Moscovy this week when Rex comes a callin’.
     
    Most likely results of Trump's emotional spasm:

    Russia doubles down on support for Syria, and as already announced beefs up both Russian and Syrian air defences in the region.

    Russia finally gives up trying to cooperate with the US in Syria and recognises that appeasement is useless, as already commenced with the ending of sharing info about air movements.

    Trump is now going to be judged as Obama was judged by whether or not he succeeds in regime change in Syria. If he fails, it's another bloody nose for the US and he's an incompetent buffoon. If he succeeds, Syria gets handed over to jihadists and he has to handle the consequences.

    A lose-lose strategy. Well done. Trump and the US establishment. masterful strategery.

    I haven't discounted the possibility, because it was not suggested.

    Now that you have raised it, of course anything's possible but the Syria spasm didn't advance the likelihood of any such deal one iota. For Putin and Assad and the other parties involved to reach such an agreement, the prerequisite is a US that can be trusted to act rationally and reasonably predictably. Trump's actions went the other way, making the US a dramatically less attractive partner for any kind of deal.

    And, of course, the Trump regime has now publicly returned to the Obama policy of regime change in Syria as a necessary prerequisite for peace.

    On the suggested deal specifically, if you are suggesting an effective partition of Syria into the areas currently controlled by the government in the west, and the Kurds and US zones in the east (with the areas they hope to take from ISIS), for such a deal to be made it would need to provide for the interests of all the parties currently interfering in Syria - the US and Russia yes, but also Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey on the terrorists' side, and Iran , Iraq and Lebanon on the Syrian side, as well as the Kurds on their own side. Russia would gain nothing from a mere "understanding" with Trump that such a deal would be honoured, because they know the US regime as a whole cannot be trusted and its regional allies still less.

    While the partition you suggest might well come about de facto, as a result of practical limitations of all sides on the ground, I can't see any prospect of the interested parties agreeing to it voluntarily. Israel and Saudi Arabia, in particular are too invested in regime change to agree to any such compromise that leaves the Syrian government in charge in all the big population centres, and the US regime generally dances to their tune in the ME. Turkey, meanwhile, is unlikely to accept the de facto Kurdish state it would create in eastern Syria, and the Kurds wouldn't accept it if it didn't create such a state.

    President of Syria still in office in a Syria reduced to a coastal rump with important cities and bases in it?
     
    The fact that you think government controlled Syria is a "rump" suggests that your ideas about Syria are based upon US sphere media propaganda rather than reality. The government controls all the large population centres, the vast majority of the administrative centres, and the vast majority of Syria's population and productive regions, oil aside, as it has mostly throughout, aside from the long-lasting terrorist hold on part of Aleppo brought to an end last year.

(All four adult Trump children have Jewish partners -- coincidence?) Looks like we were had, especially when you see the give-aways to the financial mega-Jews and the Israelis. Looks like the invasion and occupation of a critical slice of Syria is on, along with the sucking up of Golan oil by Rothschild, Cheney and Murdoch. Unless the Russians fight for their lives, and even give nukes to Iran and Syria.

    First, they will be used to attack him, once the initial flush of excitement has worn off. Second, he will likely, unless he backs away from any policy steps the establishment regards as unacceptable (such as curtailing mass immigration or constraining external aggression), face impeachment on some trumped up grounds in due course, and when he does there will be far fewer motivated core supporters willing to put in the effort to call senators/congressmen, persuade others etc, in his defence. The key establishment Republican senators and congressmen, who hate him and are only constrained from siding with the Democrats to vote for impeachment by fear of their own voters, will be free to act.

A good place to start would be “draining the swamp” by rooting out and dismissing every Zionist neocon Israeli agent in the federal government, starting with his useless son-in-law.

  55. @Greg Johnson: Ouch, Ouch and Ouch although a great compilation about the missile bombings undertaken by DT at the behest of not only false and manipulated intelligence via Deep State but also the warmongers like McCain working feverishly to topple Assad. Who can forget the pics of McCain and ‘moderate rebels’ although the current caliph Al Baghdadi also in the same pics who was anything but a moderate rebel as we now know!

    Ponder this: Reported by the Russian Insider via The Last Great Stand this past Friday and after the bombing the Russian Foreign Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova briefed attendees that the bombings of Idlib was the result of the information by the long discredited ‘white helmets’ long before the so-called Sarin gas used on innocent Syrian civilians. A falsified report by said white helmets to the Deep State was used to plan these bombings by their DOD planners ergo missiles hitting the exact location as reported by said white helmets in Syria.

    Clearly – these deadly weapons used on these innocent citizens was planned and carried out and Assad or Russia had no involvement in these attacks. Not that that is a surprise like those same attacks before this one.
    Once again the Deep State got their way although leaving the runways intact lets me believe that DT left a small door open not to provoke an all out war from the get-go.

    While Nikki Haley – a #NeverTrump, globalist and establishment candidate continues to provoke, accuse and advocates against not only toppling Assad but also attempting to continue to smear and accuse Putin and his government via her appointment by DT as the UN ambassador there is also Jared Kushner the son-in-law of DT whispering in DT’s ear about his own globalist agenda one hopes that DT can separate MAGA from these instigators of the Deep State agenda that are all part of his inner circle with the exception of Bannon who is indeed the one and only realist.

    Not all is as it appears and it would be wise for DT to heed the advice given by Bannon having his clearheaded agenda matching reality rather being goaded into the Deep State driven and planned war with Russia as the imperialists they are while toppling Assad to take control of his country needed to built the long planned pipeline from Qatar into Europe via needed Syria.

Can't find this recently-encountered word/phrase right now, but I think it quite likely that Trump, the U.S., and its various international poodle-states are now understood to fall under this negative determination; i.e., that they are considered so untrustworthy as to be beneath contempt.

    But it is worse than that. I no longer like or respect Trump either. Trump didn’t just betray us. He betrayed us over something utterly stupid.
     
    The stupidity of it is evidence that either
    1) he's trapped by neocons
    or
    2) it was a quid pro quo for something

    either way it makes more sense to carry on opposing WW3 without attacking Trump personally.

    Nope. It’s clear Trump is after all not competent to handle foreign policy, and the Syria spasm makes it clear it’s time to move on from giving him the benefit of the doubt. If there is going to be a neocon tool in the White House, better it’s an openly acknowledged one like Pence rather than someone who can partially defuse fringe opposition to his policies.

    1. The Chinese leader acquiesced to American moves in Arabia and more importantly carrier movements against Kim Chung Fat in Korea.
     
    Evidence?

    Since when did Washington need or ask for China's permission to sail its carriers about the Pacific? If you are saying China has meekly agreed to let the US do in China's backyard what Washington has done in the Middle East so effectively for the past 15 years - create mass murderous chaos with stupid (or evil, if you assume they've done it on purpose) military idiocy - then I think that needs rather more backup than just pulling it out of your backside.

    There's a valid question as to what China can actually do to prevent a loose cannon like Trump from creating that kind of murderous havoc in its backyard. That remains to be seen. But that's a long way from their approving it or acquiescing to it.

    2. Putin made a lot of noise but I bet he even meets the Texan in Moscovy this week when Rex comes a callin’.
     
    Most likely results of Trump's emotional spasm:

    Russia doubles down on support for Syria, and as already announced beefs up both Russian and Syrian air defences in the region.

    Russia finally gives up trying to cooperate with the US in Syria and recognises that appeasement is useless, as already commenced with the ending of sharing info about air movements.

    Trump is now going to be judged as Obama was judged by whether or not he succeeds in regime change in Syria. If he fails, it's another bloody nose for the US and he's an incompetent buffoon. If he succeeds, Syria gets handed over to jihadists and he has to handle the consequences.

    A lose-lose strategy. Well done. Trump and the US establishment. masterful strategery.

  66. This missile attack was only the most obvious example that Trump is a closet neocon.

    1. Soon after he took office he okayed a mindless raid in Yemen.

    2. As he took office, thousands of American soldiers were arriving in Germany to occupy new bases on Russia’s border. Trump could have ordered them to return home, but no, they are now in the Baltics.

    3. Rather than pull our few troops out of Syria to focus on ISIS in Iraq, Trump ordered hundreds more into Syria and announced that Assad would have to cede Eastern Syria. More troops were sent to Iraq from the USA.

    4. Rather than trim excessive military spending, Trump demands a 10% increase, to be paid for by slashing domestic programs.

    5. Rather than announcing that South Korea, Japan and China must deal with the North Korean problem, Trump announces the Americans will solve it, with force if needed, and allows more American troops to deploy to South Korea.

    6. Trump demanded that NATO nations spend more on their military, they laughed him off, and he allowed our Army to deploy more troops to Germany and elsewhere.

    7. Trump openly agrees that the West Bank belongs to Israel and it can do whatever it pleases, like displacing Arab villages with new ones for American immigrants.

    8. Trump continues Obama’s policy of bombing Syria every day, which kills dozens of civilians each month, then orders a mindless attack on our ally, the Syrian army.

When Trump was asked about the gas attack by a reporter at the news conference with King Abdullah of Jordan, he saw it as an opportunity for abusing Obama as a weak little girl for declaring a red line in Syria and then backing down when Assad crossed it rather than acting decisively. When asked if this attack crossed any red lines for him, Trump of course had to agree and amplify, lest he too be a weak little girl like Obama.

    That makes a lot of sense, and you’ve at least explained a little better how he came to this point. Thanks for the enlightenment.

    Significantly, Jews have married into the Bush clan, the Clinton clan, the Gore clan, and the Trump clan. Poor suffering Jews not only have an appetite for dominating the global discussion (news and entertainment; drafting laws that identify 'hate' speech), acquiring money and controlling its flow (high finance and the Fed) but they've even found a more-subtle way to co-opt gentile power: sex and intermarriage.

    After all, how many 'orthodox' Jews go out and marry a shiksa?

    Jared Kushner's marriage to Ivanka and his deep penetration into Trump's inner circle is nothing less than a political coup. This young man has become one of the world's most influential Jews. With Kushner in, Steve Banion's ouster was inevitable. Trump is now undergoing a conversion himself.

    Second, it goes way too far to say that we got Hillary’s foreign policy, given that the she-beast recently said that she wanted regime change.
     
    Certainly not "way" too far. What we have now is at least Obama's foreign policy. Whether Hilary would actually have gone any further yet rather depends upon whether when it came down to it she and her advisers would have had the bottle to do what she claimed ought to be done - by no means certain.

    This is Trump's Syria policy, as of last Thursday:

    No peace in Syria until Assad is ousted, says Nikki Haley

    "Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, has said that she sees regime change in Syria as one of the Trump administration’s priorities in the country wracked by civil war.

    Defeating Islamic State, pushing Iranian influence out of Syria, and the ousting of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad are priorities for Washington, Haley said in an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, which will air in full on Sunday.

    “There’s not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime,” Haley said, while reiterating that defeating Isis was still the number one policy goal. “If you look at his actions, if you look at the situation, it’s going to be hard to see a government that’s peaceful and stable with Assad.”

    “Regime change is something that we think is going to happen.”
    "

    Certainly not “way” too far. What we have now is at least Obama’s foreign policy.

    We can call it Obama’s foreign policy when he’s overthrown a dictator. All he gave us was one airstrike that, again, had no military effect on the conflict.

    Agree that Haley is awful, but Tillerson is much better and restrained. We still have an administration that is less hardline on Assad than just about anyone in Washington. If a few meaningless bombs get them to shut up about Russia collusion and freed him up to make a deal with Putin, this will have turned out to have been a brilliant move.

    The alt right is acting like he just unilaterally gave amnesty to all illegal immigrants. This is not the end of the world. If it leads to real regime change, I’ll be first to agree with the harshest criticisms of Trump in this article.

    I think the Russians at least do claim to have intervened partially to protect minorities (Christians especially, but also the other groups) from the massacres that would undoubtedly happen if Islamists took over. Obviously one shouldn't probably take this too seriously (though it does have some basis in reality imo).

    Precisely to stabilize Syria, as these minorities actually ran Syria.
    But it does look like Syria and Iraq are going down the road to partition, partial partition anyway. The Kurds are the biggest benefactors of this, besides the Zionist Entity, and they have been the Neocohens next best friend.
  72. Great job, Greg. I knew you could write an article about Trump and Syria, and mention Martin Heidgegger casually in passing. Umm…can you throw in something about Batman, next time?

    So Trump did this to prove he’s a man in front of the Obamanator? A guy who has a billion dollars and is married to a supermodel, and is now President, has an inferiority problem? Come on. The official line makes more sense than that. You know, Trump got all choked up after he heard about those Syrian babies choking to death by poison gas. The whole thing is idiotic.

    I suspect that this has been planned for a while, and someone made Trump an offer he couldn’t refuse. Before any of this happened, a month or so ago, I watched an interview with Assad. At the same time Nimrata was trashing Putin and Syria at the UN, Assad was wondering out loud why Trump hadn’t called him yet? He just couldn’t figure it out. Now we know. Hope this doesn’t lead to the Big One.

    What’s your scenario for these things coming back to bite Trump? So he loses abit of Alt Right support? So that actually adds to his problems in getting re-elected?

    First, they will be used to attack him, once the initial flush of excitement has worn off. Second, he will likely, unless he backs away from any policy steps the establishment regards as unacceptable (such as curtailing mass immigration or constraining external aggression), face impeachment on some trumped up grounds in due course, and when he does there will be far fewer motivated core supporters willing to put in the effort to call senators/congressmen, persuade others etc, in his defence. The key establishment Republican senators and congressmen, who hate him and are only constrained from siding with the Democrats to vote for impeachment by fear of their own voters, will be free to act.

    I read somewhere in one of the post election analysis pieces that almost 30% of those voting for Trump either "had doubts about his truthfulness" or "did not admire him personally ".
    Since these were both, by far, the highest negative evaluations ever registered for a successful U.S. Presidential candidate, ( by his voters remember ) , he is Trump the Teflon no longer- his support is melting like April snow.
    If his candidacy was not a charade all along ( something I believe to be a very distinct possibility ) , he's another fiasco or two away from becoming another Andrew Johnson- a universal object of scorn from all, and I do mean all, quarters.
    With Ms. Clinton as the alternative, doubts could be, and were, choked down.

    I’m not suspicious of this at all. Face it, virtually all of us, even those of us who vociferously supported Trump, had serious reservations about the mental stability and maturity of the man.

    Indeed, I thought that his surrounding himself with younger family to the extent that he has installed his daughter and her Jewish husband in his administration and the obvious degree to which he relies on Ivanka reminded me of my own Father doing similar things during the period of his life when he was plainly becoming demented.

    Furthermore, his seemingly quite limited vocabulary, as opposed to Mr. Johnson’s remarkable vocabulary above, suggested to me that he had limited mental acuity.

    My Father ultimately died of Alzheimer’s. Let’s hope we’re no witnessing a like fate in progress with Mr. Trump.

    Good article (the 1st half). The 2nd half indicates that the author is still delusional.

    I know Greg Johnson personally, and “delusional” is an understatement. Never mind the fact that he is a nazi and his dog is named Rockwell, and not for Norman by the way, GJ is one of the worst reps of WN and is one of the reasons I no longer call myself a WN, Spencer being the other reason fundamentally, plus a cast of extras who are more or less me-tooers.

    As for Trump being a God That Failed, this expresses the delusional aspect. Trump was never more than a Great Opening Act for the Counter-Evolution and in that respect, he still is.

    Counter-Revolution, like Revolution, as in 1789 and its course all the way to the present, is not to be considered as anything but a process. We are in the First Act with more than just 3, say, acts to follow.

    Trump had the requisite Big Balls to go after the GOP Establishment and the lib-rad media. He still has that testicular fortitude and thus there is more to come, like bombing N. Korea’s Big Bomb/Missile capability. This of course with permission from China and Russia.

    That would be a major accomplishment.

    As for his Israel love, we will see. The current news is bad, and I am unhappy about it, but there is no reason to give up on Trump.

    He has successfully beaten off his critics, thereby gaining time. Those who point out that the cruise missile attack was largely theater, are correct. He got Russian compliance, etc. And that is very important inasmuch as it is Realistic. How many divisions do the muzzies have.?..kinda thing..
    So the terrorism continues, and as Bibi put it, that is Very Good for us, the counter-revolution.

    The Trump economics, while enjoying a shot in the arm from rhetoric…the stock market….probably will not work out too well, as Dr. Phil would put it. Supply Side economics assumes that working people have money in their pockets. Chicken and Egg. My view is that money in pockets comes first, not gadgets produced in fanciful expectations of deep worker’s pockets.

    Trump , as all the pundits correctly point out, must successfully address jobs and pay. If his putative nationalist economics does not pay off, and especially if we have the overdue recession, the First Act of counter-revolution will be over and it will be Next!

She gets what she wants whether it's a pony or the right to influence foreign policy decisions because of sad pictures. Unfortunately the influential Zionists behind her husband have figured this out and know that they have a direct conduit through to Trump from his daughter.

    Certainly not “way” too far. What we have now is at least Obama’s foreign policy.

     

    We can call it Obama's foreign policy when he's overthrown a dictator. All he gave us was one airstrike that, again, had no military effect on the conflict.

    Agree that Haley is awful, but Tillerson is much better and restrained. We still have an administration that is less hardline on Assad than just about anyone in Washington. If a few meaningless bombs get them to shut up about Russia collusion and freed him up to make a deal with Putin, this will have turned out to have been a brilliant move.

    The alt right is acting like he just unilaterally gave amnesty to all illegal immigrants. This is not the end of the world. If it leads to real regime change, I'll be first to agree with the harshest criticisms of Trump in this article.

    But what makes you think either Putin or Trump are remotely interested in "protecting minorities" in Syria?

    Still less Turkey, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, who have been the biggest trouble fomenters there, and who have very different objectives from "protecting minorities". Nor even Iran and Hezbollah, whose goals there are at least strategically defensive but still aren't really more than peripherally to do with "protecting minorities".

    For that matter, why on earth would "protecting minorities" in Syria be any concern of the US government anyway?

    “But what makes you think either Putin or Trump are remotely interested in “protecting minorities” in Syria?”

    I think the Russians at least do claim to have intervened partially to protect minorities (Christians especially, but also the other groups) from the massacres that would undoubtedly happen if Islamists took over. Obviously one shouldn’t probably take this too seriously (though it does have some basis in reality imo).

    I know Greg Johnson personally, and "delusional" is an understatement. Never mind the fact that he is a nazi and his dog is named Rockwell, and not for Norman by the way, GJ is one of the worst reps of WN and is one of the reasons I no longer call myself a WN, Spencer being the other reason fundamentally, plus a cast of extras who are more or less me-tooers.

    As for Trump being a God That Failed, this expresses the delusional aspect. Trump was never more than a Great Opening Act for the Counter-Evolution and in that respect, he still is.

    Counter-Revolution, like Revolution, as in 1789 and its course all the way to the present, is not to be considered as anything but a process. We are in the First Act with more than just 3, say, acts to follow.

    Trump had the requisite Big Balls to go after the GOP Establishment and the lib-rad media. He still has that testicular fortitude and thus there is more to come, like bombing N. Korea's Big Bomb/Missile capability. This of course with permission from China and Russia.

    That would be a major accomplishment.

    As for his Israel love, we will see. The current news is bad, and I am unhappy about it, but there is no reason to give up on Trump.

    He has successfully beaten off his critics, thereby gaining time. Those who point out that the cruise missile attack was largely theater, are correct. He got Russian compliance, etc. And that is very important inasmuch as it is Realistic. How many divisions do the muzzies have.?..kinda thing..
    So the terrorism continues, and as Bibi put it, that is Very Good for us, the counter-revolution.

    The Trump economics, while enjoying a shot in the arm from rhetoric...the stock market....probably will not work out too well, as Dr. Phil would put it. Supply Side economics assumes that working people have money in their pockets. Chicken and Egg. My view is that money in pockets comes first, not gadgets produced in fanciful expectations of deep worker's pockets.

    Trump , as all the pundits correctly point out, must successfully address jobs and pay. If his putative nationalist economics does not pay off, and especially if we have the overdue recession, the First Act of counter-revolution will be over and it will be Next!

    Joe Webb

    We are not in the process of any Counter-Revolution or Revolution. Do not be naive. No 2nd or 3rd act will follow. If you voted for Trump you did your job and now you can go home. For every lost vote because of the action in Syria Trump gained two new votes: one from a neocon democrat and one from a neocon republican. Trump will non miss you in 2020. This was the plan from the day when the Deep State decided to not derail Trump’s campaign. Most of criticisms of Trump during the campaign were simulated to legitimize him in the eyes of folks like you.

    maybe, but Trump appealed to the white working class and won with their votes. This class does not care about neocons, mostly does not know what and who they are.

    AS for deep state changing its mind about Trump, there seems to be no evidence of that.

    Criticisms of Trump were largely in the realm of crazy, unhinged, egotistical, TV showman, no depth, not presidential, etc.

    None of those things meant anything to me, except to kind of grin at the folks left twisting in the wind...leftie Dems and so on.

    I voted For Trump because he at least meant a large slap to the face of the Dems, the Negroes, the Mexicans, and the low-life generally, in short, to liberalism.

    For other reasons I could still be naive. But Europe is surely turning rightwards with regard to race/immigration, and the US will continue to do so because of economic, and racial, and crime and welfare abuse by darkies.

    You suggest that the Dems can recover I think. Tell us how the would work, and why the US generally is not going to go Populist.

    The following is a serious question. Is this a Trump White House (America First) or is this a Kushner White House (Liberal Jew)?

    What does this family relationship mean for America? Why did Ivanka go with Trump on the first emotional visit of a fallen solder? Why was Jared looking over the shoulder of America’s top general in Iraq? What role did the Kushners play in dumping the first two campaign managers? What role did they play in picking the vice president? Why are they in most every White House meeting picture? How important are they?

    Clearly Ivanka sent Daddy Trump off to war.

    Clearly, the Kushners are NY liberal Jews – not America First conservatives. Clearly Steve Bannon (the architect of the America First policy) is in their crosshairs.

    In any discussion about this administration and where it is going - the relationship between Trump and Ivanka has to be taken into account.

    Are we in for eight years of Ivanka’s America?

    Peace --- Art

    p.s. Me thinks Trump has had enough media hate and that he is looking for love – even liberal love.

    It’s not only Kushner, but in reality Trump has done very little to drain the swamp. The swamp starts with those working in the WH. Trump’s family (including son in law Kushy) should stick to their private business stuff and not government.

    What’s your scenario for these things coming back to bite Trump? So he loses abit of Alt Right support? So that actually adds to his problems in getting re-elected?
     
    First, they will be used to attack him, once the initial flush of excitement has worn off. Second, he will likely, unless he backs away from any policy steps the establishment regards as unacceptable (such as curtailing mass immigration or constraining external aggression), face impeachment on some trumped up grounds in due course, and when he does there will be far fewer motivated core supporters willing to put in the effort to call senators/congressmen, persuade others etc, in his defence. The key establishment Republican senators and congressmen, who hate him and are only constrained from siding with the Democrats to vote for impeachment by fear of their own voters, will be free to act.

    In April 2017 why should he care?
     
    Who cares whether he cares or not?

    Very doubtful that Eisenhower would have reacted the same way as Trump. Eisenhower knew something about war. WW II, etc; he recognized that the Korean War was unwinnable and that there was nothing to win other than a stalemate; he crushed the Anglo-Franco-Israeli adventure in the Suez; he reacted to the Hungarian uprising in 1956 in a temperate and judicious way. When Eisenhower told a General or an Admiral to jump, the answer was how high.
    Trump is a NYC pretty boy who took the easy way out during the VietNam war; Obama wouldn't know which way to turn a screw driver; W and his insecurities let his Vice President, a draft dodger, ruin his Presidency; and Clinton was an unrepentant self serving draft dodger, and proud of it. In a room filled with fruit salad and scrambled eggs, such as these proved easy pickings for the Generals; and it has showed. God, how it has showed.
    If there is something in Eisenhower's record to suggest that a New York minute after being shown a photograph he would call down a Naval barrage on a target of scant military significance to send the world the signal that he was, after all, not stable, I'm open to learning what it might be.

    "I’m a little suspicious at how quickly we on the Alt Right moved to condemn Trump".

    I'm not suspicious of this at all. Face it, virtually all of us, even those of us who vociferously supported Trump, had serious reservations about the mental stability and maturity of the man.

    Indeed, I thought that his surrounding himself with younger family to the extent that he has installed his daughter and her Jewish husband in his administration and the obvious degree to which he relies on Ivanka reminded me of my own Father doing similar things during the period of his life when he was plainly becoming demented.

    Furthermore, his seemingly quite limited vocabulary, as opposed to Mr. Johnson's remarkable vocabulary above, suggested to me that he had limited mental acuity.

    My Father ultimately died of Alzheimer's. Let's hope we're no witnessing a like fate in progress with Mr. Trump.

    One of Al Gore's daughters married into the infamous Schiff banking family that funded the Jewish communist conquest of Russia.

    The ultra orthodox of all varieties despise Ivanka because she doesn't follow the orthodox dress code. Not only does she wear belts and sleeveless tops, but she doesn't wear a wig either Horrors!!!!!

    Significantly, Jews have married into the Bush clan, the Clinton clan, the Gore clan, and the Trump clan. Poor suffering Jews not only have an appetite for dominating the global discussion (news and entertainment; drafting laws that identify ‘hate’ speech), acquiring money and controlling its flow (high finance and the Fed) but they’ve even found a more-subtle way to co-opt gentile power: sex and intermarriage.

    After all, how many ‘orthodox’ Jews go out and marry a shiksa?

    Jared Kushner’s marriage to Ivanka and his deep penetration into Trump’s inner circle is nothing less than a political coup. This young man has become one of the world’s most influential Jews. With Kushner in, Steve Banion’s ouster was inevitable. Trump is now undergoing a conversion himself.

    Eisenhower warned of the military industrial complex ("war machine") but he would have reacted the same way Trump has. You must have led a very sheltered life to think the way you do.

    Very doubtful that Eisenhower would have reacted the same way as Trump. Eisenhower knew something about war. WW II, etc; he recognized that the Korean War was unwinnable and that there was nothing to win other than a stalemate; he crushed the Anglo-Franco-Israeli adventure in the Suez; he reacted to the Hungarian uprising in 1956 in a temperate and judicious way. When Eisenhower told a General or an Admiral to jump, the answer was how high.
    Trump is a NYC pretty boy who took the easy way out during the VietNam war; Obama wouldn’t know which way to turn a screw driver; W and his insecurities let his Vice President, a draft dodger, ruin his Presidency; and Clinton was an unrepentant self serving draft dodger, and proud of it. In a room filled with fruit salad and scrambled eggs, such as these proved easy pickings for the Generals; and it has showed. God, how it has showed.
    If there is something in Eisenhower’s record to suggest that a New York minute after being shown a photograph he would call down a Naval barrage on a target of scant military significance to send the world the signal that he was, after all, not stable, I’m open to learning what it might be.

    The idea that bankers and speculators and arms dealer causeed WW1, and maybe all wars ,whereby they made vast profits was once received wisdom, and I supposed Eisenhower absorbed some of that zeitgeist.

    Eisenhower made nuclear armaments more central to U.S. military plans. By ensuring that the United States would promptly respond with atomic weapons to almost any type of Soviet aggression (in a spasmodic act of “massive retaliation”), the need and attendant expense of a large standing army and navy was seemingly obviated.
     
    Looking for way to save taxpayers' money (conventional weapons are extremely expensive) Eisenhower loudly proclaimed that he would use nuclear weapons if the Bear put a paw across a border. But it was the "threat of an incredible action" and not a credible deterrent, especially as the US homeland was not at stake . So Eisenhower had the brilliant idea of giving West Germany a finger on the nuclear trigger (the MLF) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3j20voPS0gI

    The Russians, especially Khrushchev, were terrified the Germans with nukes could pull off a nuclear standoff, and with a conventional blitzkrieg under a nuclear umbrella be at the gates of Moscow in short order. (the Russian knew the truth of the Eastern front , and that they could never be a match for the Germans). The result down the line, was the Cold War (a term coined by Eisenhower's mentor Bernard Baruch, a man of whom Eisenhower said consulting him about his career was the wisest decision he ever made-- wise decision indeed, he was catapulted over a slew of other general officers into supreme command) .

    JFK also pursued MLF type nuking up of Germany, and the result was he and Khrushchev took the world uncomfortably close to nuclear war, because Khrushchev was another one who cut conventional weapons and relied on nukes. Makes the military industrial complex seem quite benevolent, doesn't it eh? Khrushchev was relying on nukes and it brought him down. Fortunately Leonid Brezhnev understood a conventional build up was needed. More artillery and more tanks and planes are essential, especially for a nuclear power, It's money well spent (the B52 bomber is a good example:a platform that never gets old). Patience I am getting there

    As I have shown Eisenhower had little faith in conventional weapons, he did not tell a few missiles "Your Fired" but he did threaten nuclear weapons use in Korea , probably because it was a stalemate that was causing an expensive conventional build up by the US. Maybe that is an example of the power of nuclear threats, but remember that the Korean war started to the astonishment of the US and CIA, and the Chinese (without nukes) came in to the astonishment of McArthur. All Truman's threats to use nukes in Korea had no effect. Nuclear weapons have no military purpose--wars cannot be fought with them. So to answer your question, Eisenhower--in a similar situation to Trump right now--would have made empty threats, or made dangerous nuclear initiatives. Look, people join the army to fight and people work in the arms industry (the original funder of all the US advanced technology) for good pay. Eisenhower understood very little about the economy. Again, it was his policies that brought the world the closest it has yet came to nuclear catastrophe.

    As for Trump being a God That Failed, this expresses the delusional aspect. Trump was never more than a Great Opening Act for the Counter-Evolution and in that respect, he still is.

    Counter-Revolution, like Revolution, as in 1789 and its course all the way to the present, is not to be considered as anything but a process. We are in the First Act with more than just 3, say, acts to follow.

    Trump had the requisite Big Balls to go after the GOP Establishment and the lib-rad media. He still has that testicular fortitude and thus there is more to come, like bombing N. Korea's Big Bomb/Missile capability. This of course with permission from China and Russia.

    That would be a major accomplishment.

    As for his Israel love, we will see. The current news is bad, and I am unhappy about it, but there is no reason to give up on Trump.

    He has successfully beaten off his critics, thereby gaining time. Those who point out that the cruise missile attack was largely theater, are correct. He got Russian compliance, etc. And that is very important inasmuch as it is Realistic. How many divisions do the muzzies have.?..kinda thing..
    So the terrorism continues, and as Bibi put it, that is Very Good for us, the counter-revolution.

    The Trump economics, while enjoying a shot in the arm from rhetoric...the stock market....probably will not work out too well, as Dr. Phil would put it. Supply Side economics assumes that working people have money in their pockets. Chicken and Egg. My view is that money in pockets comes first, not gadgets produced in fanciful expectations of deep worker's pockets.

    Trump , as all the pundits correctly point out, must successfully address jobs and pay. If his putative nationalist economics does not pay off, and especially if we have the overdue recession, the First Act of counter-revolution will be over and it will be Next!

  115. @Randal
    I haven't discounted the possibility, because it was not suggested.

    Now that you have raised it, of course anything's possible but the Syria spasm didn't advance the likelihood of any such deal one iota. For Putin and Assad and the other parties involved to reach such an agreement, the prerequisite is a US that can be trusted to act rationally and reasonably predictably. Trump's actions went the other way, making the US a dramatically less attractive partner for any kind of deal.

    And, of course, the Trump regime has now publicly returned to the Obama policy of regime change in Syria as a necessary prerequisite for peace.

    On the suggested deal specifically, if you are suggesting an effective partition of Syria into the areas currently controlled by the government in the west, and the Kurds and US zones in the east (with the areas they hope to take from ISIS), for such a deal to be made it would need to provide for the interests of all the parties currently interfering in Syria - the US and Russia yes, but also Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey on the terrorists' side, and Iran , Iraq and Lebanon on the Syrian side, as well as the Kurds on their own side. Russia would gain nothing from a mere "understanding" with Trump that such a deal would be honoured, because they know the US regime as a whole cannot be trusted and its regional allies still less.

    While the partition you suggest might well come about de facto, as a result of practical limitations of all sides on the ground, I can't see any prospect of the interested parties agreeing to it voluntarily. Israel and Saudi Arabia, in particular are too invested in regime change to agree to any such compromise that leaves the Syrian government in charge in all the big population centres, and the US regime generally dances to their tune in the ME. Turkey, meanwhile, is unlikely to accept the de facto Kurdish state it would create in eastern Syria, and the Kurds wouldn't accept it if it didn't create such a state.

    President of Syria still in office in a Syria reduced to a coastal rump with important cities and bases in it?
     
    The fact that you think government controlled Syria is a "rump" suggests that your ideas about Syria are based upon US sphere media propaganda rather than reality. The government controls all the large population centres, the vast majority of the administrative centres, and the vast majority of Syria's population and productive regions, oil aside, as it has mostly throughout, aside from the long-lasting terrorist hold on part of Aleppo brought to an end last year.

    Randal,

    There is a Russian word/phrase that dismissively characterizes a counterparty as being temperamentally incapable of honoring an agreement (with the clear implication that one would be a fool to, once this is known, ever trust that counterparty again, as their word means less than nothing). Can’t find this recently-encountered word/phrase right now, but I think it quite likely that Trump, the U.S., and its various international poodle-states are now understood to fall under this negative determination; i.e., that they are considered so untrustworthy as to be beneath contempt.

    Trumpenstein learned early on how to get along and prosper in predominantly jooie NY real estate, and later in kosher television entertainment. He took the traditional approach, and intermarried with the jooies, and cut the jooies in on his action. Get it? He became one of them...kind of an honorary jooie. He shares their crass base values (bragging about his battles with VD on the low rent stern radio show) and lust for riches without working for it (real estate development using borrowed money). It would not be surprising to find considerable jooie blood in his clan's past.....just a guess. In short, he did not sell out you alt righties.....the jooies bought him long ago.

    My faint hope was that he had learned from his experiences in NYC how these bastards operated, and would have been to some degree at least, fortified against their tactics. Apparently not, or he just lacked the spine to resist. I had just been released from hospital on election day, and in spite of this, insisted to my wife that we stop at the polling place so I could vote for him (in NJ, a lost cause, but it made me feel better…). That was then, but not now, as his statements concerning defusing conflict with Russia, and killing heaps of jihadis in Syria were determining factors in my voting for him.

    Jared Kushner's marriage to Ivanka and his deep penetration into Trump's inner circle is nothing less than a political coup. This young man has become one of the world's most influential Jews. With Kushner in, Steve Banion's ouster was inevitable. Trump is now undergoing a conversion himself.

    I know that sounds absurd superficially - accusing someone of being "like Hitler", only to be placated when the person behaves "like Hitler". The paradox is resolved in understanding that neocon antipathy toward Hitler is rooted in tribalism, not ideology. Neocons don't despise Hitler's ideology when that ideology is detached from the context and identities of the people Hitler was for or against. In fact, neocons are a lot like Hitler ideologically - and believe in the same things he did. His fault for them is grounded in partisanship. He was "someone else's sonofabitch" and "against us". If Hitler was "on our team" and "our sonofabitch" , they'd be ecstatic.
  119. @Jeremy Cooper
    This is a good article, let me just make two points.

    First of all, I think that anyone should've realized that Trump was a childish egomaniac obsessed with one-upping people a long time ago. That's no surprise. Generally, the alt right supported him because of the possibility that that ego could be harnessed to do some good things.

    Second, it goes way too far to say that we got Hillary's foreign policy, given that the she-beast recently said that she wanted regime change. It is very interesting that the US did not even cater the runway ramp at the Syrian airbase, much to the chagrin of John McCain, and the next day the Syrian regime was hitting rebels from the exact same airbase.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mccain-says-administration-partially-to-blame-for-chemical-attack-in-syria/

    For that resin, I think that it's not too crazy to believe that Lawrence O'Donnell is right when he, to great mockery, said that perhaps Trump collaborated with Putin to change the subject from the Russian narrative.

    http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/04/07/msnbcs-odonnell-maybe-putin-masterminded-chemical-attack-so-trump-could-look-good-by-striking-syria/

    The attack on Syria did literally nothing to change the balance of power on the battlefield, yet he killed the collusion with Russia story and got universal praise from the establishment for whatever his next move is.

    I don't claim to know what's going on, or what Trump's true motivations are. I think he's an egomaniacal buffoon, but with instincts that are sound compared to the rest of the establishment. And I think that it's too early to denounce him as a traitor and a fool, given the limited nature of the strike. Let's wait and see.

    The US is violating Syrian sovereignty every day on the pretext of “defeating ISIS”.
    You know, the guys (and they are mostly military males) who chop peoples heads off, burn them alive, throw people from buildings ….. Bad guys. Right?
    The Syrian army/airforce is trying to eradicate these monsters from their country.
    To do so they need a functioning airfield. So when you say: It’s very interesting that the US did not even cater the runway ramp at the Syrian airbase, much to the chagrin of John McCain, and the next day the Syrian regime was hitting rebels from the exact same airbase.

    Surely that’s a good thing????
    And:
    The attack on Syria did literally nothing to change the balance of power on the battlefield……
    Again- THIS is a GOOD thing.

    The real,problem of course is that ISIS is a mercenary force constructed by US+Israel+Qatar to force a gas pipeline through the country. Israel also wants Syria partitioned and weakened as per the Yinon Plan. Because the Syrian govt (assisted by the Russian Federation) is about to defeat ISIS, the US interests are being unmasked as the “real” owners of this diabolical evil.

    Initially, I felt betrayed by Trump’s missile strike as well. However, the strike seems to have been an isolated and relatively mild military action. Will anyone really remember this in a few years, or even in a few months? Many of those on the Alt Right are projecting their disdain and fear of a second Iraq war on to this event, and I think that’s off base.

    If early reports are to be believed, Trump has clearly given ICE a freer hand in cracking down on illegal immigration. Furthermore, by putting Carson at HUD and Sessions at the justice department, he has stopped the emerging bipartisan cuckservative/leftist effort to let violent blacks out of prison as part of so called “criminal justice reform,” and then forcibly integrate them into white neighborhoods through housing quotas in order to reduce so-called “neighborhood inequality.” That means fewer white people raped and murdered. So no, he’s not the “God Emperor,” but, flawed though he may be, he has done some good things for white people, if only by blocking the ability of the left to do them harm. We should not forget that.

    Xi Jinping, a very busy guy, flew halfway around the world for a private, overnight visit to President Trump's home where he is protected from bugging by his own security staff. No agenda was released and there were no negotiations. It was not a state visit and reporters were excluded.

    Over dinner, Trump told Xi that he had ordered a $100 million missile attack on an abandoned airport in Syria and that he had informed President Putin in advance. Xi didn't criticize it and Putin said he's looking forward to Trump's Moscow visit. This morning Trump's Secretary of State announced that it is up to the Syrian people to choose Assad as their leader if they wish–which has been Russia's policy all along.

    After the meeting, Trump was ecstatic about the 'wonderful new relationship' with China.

    Trump was elected on an essentially anti-war platform–the quickest way for an American president to get assassinated or impeached–and calls for his assassination and impeachment began immediately.

    Putin and Xi want peace and are willing to spend and do almost anything for it.

    Look for China to create a million new jobs in the USA over the next 12 months: it's something they're very good at and a trillion dollar investment to accomplish it would be cheap. And look for Putin to do everything in his power to support The Donald.

    Henry Kissinger’s visit with Trump (before his inauguration) might also support your theory. Someone, I think it may have been Zero Hedge, claimed that Kissinger urged Trump to cozy up with China and set up a rift with Putin.

    I haven't discounted the possibility, because it was not suggested.

    Now that you have raised it, of course anything's possible but the Syria spasm didn't advance the likelihood of any such deal one iota. For Putin and Assad and the other parties involved to reach such an agreement, the prerequisite is a US that can be trusted to act rationally and reasonably predictably. Trump's actions went the other way, making the US a dramatically less attractive partner for any kind of deal.

    And, of course, the Trump regime has now publicly returned to the Obama policy of regime change in Syria as a necessary prerequisite for peace.

    On the suggested deal specifically, if you are suggesting an effective partition of Syria into the areas currently controlled by the government in the west, and the Kurds and US zones in the east (with the areas they hope to take from ISIS), for such a deal to be made it would need to provide for the interests of all the parties currently interfering in Syria - the US and Russia yes, but also Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey on the terrorists' side, and Iran , Iraq and Lebanon on the Syrian side, as well as the Kurds on their own side. Russia would gain nothing from a mere "understanding" with Trump that such a deal would be honoured, because they know the US regime as a whole cannot be trusted and its regional allies still less.

    While the partition you suggest might well come about de facto, as a result of practical limitations of all sides on the ground, I can't see any prospect of the interested parties agreeing to it voluntarily. Israel and Saudi Arabia, in particular are too invested in regime change to agree to any such compromise that leaves the Syrian government in charge in all the big population centres, and the US regime generally dances to their tune in the ME. Turkey, meanwhile, is unlikely to accept the de facto Kurdish state it would create in eastern Syria, and the Kurds wouldn't accept it if it didn't create such a state.

    President of Syria still in office in a Syria reduced to a coastal rump with important cities and bases in it?
     
    The fact that you think government controlled Syria is a "rump" suggests that your ideas about Syria are based upon US sphere media propaganda rather than reality. The government controls all the large population centres, the vast majority of the administrative centres, and the vast majority of Syria's population and productive regions, oil aside, as it has mostly throughout, aside from the long-lasting terrorist hold on part of Aleppo brought to an end last year.

    You sound as though you know what you are talking about! It is a very agreeable to find that on UR conveyed with courtesy rather than the bluster and rudeness of those who wish to force acceptance of themselves and their views well beyond any authority they have earned.

    Great answers by President Putin.
    All true too.

    However, in Russian for the Russian speaking audience.
    How many in US will hear it?

    MSM is working 24×7 to spread the lie that Syrian government had anything to do with it. Trump admin warmongers – Nikki the Nut, Tillerson the Troglodyte,etc – are braying for invasion and war with Syria.

    Now Pentagon is floating the charge that supposedly Russia participated in the fake chemical attack.

    These Neocon warmongering psychopaths have completely co-opted hapless Trump.

    We now see the evil genius of the months-long campaign to link Trump with the non-existent alleged Russian meddling in US elections.
    Trump team was unable to shake the charge* and he got spooked.
    He wants to remain POTUS for 4 years, and also another 4.
    So he whored himself to the Neocons hoping they’ll leave him alone.
    They won’t: now they will go for his jugular, and his base is now no longer sure of him. He will be all alone. Neocons will keep him in office (no impeachment), but will completely neuter and humiliate him, so in Nov Y2020 he will be crushed.

    Nikkis was a warmongering nut all the time.
    But what is puzzling to me is Tillerson: he was a rational man dealing with Russians rationally before he became SecState.
    Now he has gone completely psycho.
    What the heck is going on with these people?

    What’s your scenario for these things coming back to bite Trump? So he loses abit of Alt Right support? So that actually adds to his problems in getting re-elected?
     
    First, they will be used to attack him, once the initial flush of excitement has worn off. Second, he will likely, unless he backs away from any policy steps the establishment regards as unacceptable (such as curtailing mass immigration or constraining external aggression), face impeachment on some trumped up grounds in due course, and when he does there will be far fewer motivated core supporters willing to put in the effort to call senators/congressmen, persuade others etc, in his defence. The key establishment Republican senators and congressmen, who hate him and are only constrained from siding with the Democrats to vote for impeachment by fear of their own voters, will be free to act.

    In April 2017 why should he care?
     
    Who cares whether he cares or not?

    I read somewhere in one of the post election analysis pieces that almost 30% of those voting for Trump either “had doubts about his truthfulness” or “did not admire him personally “.
    Since these were both, by far, the highest negative evaluations ever registered for a successful U.S. Presidential candidate, ( by his voters remember ) , he is Trump the Teflon no longer- his support is melting like April snow.
    If his candidacy was not a charade all along ( something I believe to be a very distinct possibility ) , he’s another fiasco or two away from becoming another Andrew Johnson- a universal object of scorn from all, and I do mean all, quarters.
    With Ms. Clinton as the alternative, doubts could be, and were, choked down.
    Now the man needs to stand on his own merits and I fail to see any.

    For all I know Trump was backed into a corner to show enough aggression to feed the red meat loving leftists ...aka the new war loving hippies . I can understand that. However I am sticking to the principle. For what ever reason he has broken one of his campaign promises, and a very important one at that. I am already at the point where I would not vote for him again. I would vote for an alternative party.

    I definitely think that Democrats’ Russia hysteria played no small role in pushing Trump to embrace a more bellicose stance towards Syria. “See, you can’t say I’m a Kremlin puppet when I’m fighting one of their main allies!”

    Nevertheless, Trump – as the commander-in-chief of the most terrifying war machine in history – has agency, and must be held accountable for his trespasses. I’m glad to see comments like yours, and hopefully we can do the work of building a movement outside of the confines of the two-party system.

    We are not in the process of any Counter-Revolution or Revolution. Do not be naive. No 2nd or 3rd act will follow. If you voted for Trump you did your job and now you can go home. For every lost vote because of the action in Syria Trump gained two new votes: one from a neocon democrat and one from a neocon republican. Trump will non miss you in 2020. This was the plan from the day when the Deep State decided to not derail Trump's campaign. Most of criticisms of Trump during the campaign were simulated to legitimize him in the eyes of folks like you.

    maybe, but Trump appealed to the white working class and won with their votes. This class does not care about neocons, mostly does not know what and who they are.

    AS for deep state changing its mind about Trump, there seems to be no evidence of that.

    Criticisms of Trump were largely in the realm of crazy, unhinged, egotistical, TV showman, no depth, not presidential, etc.

    None of those things meant anything to me, except to kind of grin at the folks left twisting in the wind…leftie Dems and so on.

    I voted For Trump because he at least meant a large slap to the face of the Dems, the Negroes, the Mexicans, and the low-life generally, in short, to liberalism.

    For other reasons I could still be naive. But Europe is surely turning rightwards with regard to race/immigration, and the US will continue to do so because of economic, and racial, and crime and welfare abuse by darkies.

    You suggest that the Dems can recover I think. Tell us how the would work, and why the US generally is not going to go Populist.

    Just one thing. Throughout the whole campaign Trump talked about the wall but he never talked about penalizing the employers who hire undocumented workers. There are some laws on the books that are not being currently enforced and probably they could be strengthened with stiffer penalties by an executive order. Talking just about the wall was a sign for me that Trump was not serious about illegals. The wall was just apron in the theatre that after performance can easily be discarded because it never existed and probably newer will. The demand side solution is the fastest and least expensive and most effective one. That's why it is never mentioned and thus not discussed. The wall is just for talking about. But the demand side solution which is the real would get business and the capitalist class really pissed off and Trump has not desire nor balls to ever do it. He is one of them. The alt-right being right treats business as sacred cows. They can't be wrong. Keep in mind that both Koch brothers on the right (including libertarians) and Soros on the left agree 100% on immigration and borders.

    Counter-Revolution, like Revolution, as in 1789 and its course all the way to the present, is not to be considered as anything but a process. We are in the First Act with more than just 3, say, acts to follow.

    Trump had the requisite Big Balls to go after the GOP Establishment and the lib-rad media. He still has that testicular fortitude and thus there is more to come, like bombing N. Korea's Big Bomb/Missile capability. This of course with permission from China and Russia.

    That would be a major accomplishment.

    As for his Israel love, we will see. The current news is bad, and I am unhappy about it, but there is no reason to give up on Trump.

  139. Iffy. I am glad you asked that question, thank you.

    Lets’s leave Israel out of it, for a change of conversation. Imagine no Israel , at least in the ME. The average IQ of Arabs is about 85, like US Blacks. Blacks in Africa left to themselves now for several decades, are chaotic. There is no other word for it.

    Not even tribal really. Gangs yes. But African black IQ is 67-70. American Blacks, left to themselves would probably wind up like other countries with Average IQ at 85, whether ARab and Iranian, or heavily mestizo countries in S. America, like Columbia ( 84),
    el Salvador 80, Fiji, (85), Peru (85), and others, Tajikistan(87). Turkmenistan (87) and so on… Burma (87), Malaysia (92) but that number like in other countries (Brazil ) in Lynn are not reliable because of the Chinese, or the White respectively in Brazil, which is about half white.

    That is an optimistic guess with regard to American blacks, given their impulsiveness, etc.

    Without Israel, I would guess that Arab and Iranians would be problematic, even without oil. Maybe oil makes them more problematic. Imagine US Blacks with oil…think Nigeria.

    So it is worth considering that the ME without Jews/Israel/oil, would be a problematic place, with large scale migration efforts northward, just as Africa is demonstrating now. A billion Africans in Africa now. 500 plus million Arabs and Iranians at ? 70 million.

    So we probably would have a muzzie problem no matter what (no Israel ). The muzzies seem to have been at war with themselves to a large degree for a long time.

    Never mind their several invasions of Europe ever since they first got going…as muslims in 700 or so.

    So along comes Trump, Wilders, Le Pen, those guys in Poland, and Hungry, and , and…the mexicans, and and, and. And, economic woes for the working classes of both Europe and the US.

    Globalism, and all the rest of it. Something’s got to give. And , it is getting racialized in spades.

    The Counter-Revolution is here, with our without the Jews. Yes they lead the Revolution, and are the most hysterical today in opposing the racializaiton of our beginning. All to the better.

    Jared Taylor, who in my opinion is one of the best of us, has stayed away from the Jewish Question probably for good reason. It does not help us to get screwy about Jews. Do you want a Europe and the US without Coloreds…the Very First Thing, or do you want to keep on keeping on about The Jews? Either or?

    Secondly, the jews are in very hot water with the Left. Zion is a 4 letter word. Let that continue to bedevil the Jews, and otherwise leave them alone, in other words, Trumpism is going to continue possibly faster without whining about the Jews all the time. They are going to be with us because Christianity has a love affair with them…especially Protestants….for a very long time

    Anyhow, that is an argument.

    The missiles is probably a one shot deal, as a demonstration of muscle. The first battle for ourselves is ourselves, not the Arabs. Save the White race …that is the issue.

    Trump will be Successful if he drives the counter-revolution forward. Some here apparently say it is going to fizzle out. Ok, how about an argument? Also, the jews always shoot themselves in the foot, by insulting everybody they don’t like. Hubris, which really is the Entire Story of the Jews.
    They go too far in their Darwinian character…with No friends except fellow crackpot religion types, as in many Christians.

    Nope, that is part of the propaganda. The notion that minorities, mainly Alawites, run the vast Sunni majority. Not true.

  144. During the campaign, listening to some of Trump’s simplistic, belligerent rhetoric left one with the hope – or assumption – that it was aimed at securing the vote of the Joe Six-Pack demographic. So that was smart, wasn’t it, and sure to be moderated if by some miracle it worked to secure his victory. But, the rhetoric has not moderated – Trump seems to have not more than a line or two on most topics which he will spew out if prompted.

    Regarding the Syrian strike, maybe it’s true that it was an appeasement to the establishment – some meat thrown them in the hopes that the urge to dictate to their lessors can be satiated, and that the new suspect president has it in him to see things their way after all. But if Trump is hoping for a one-off, he is deluding himself – atrocities are easily manufactured.

    Next on the list is getting rid of the hermit kingdom’s nukes. The usual threats and such will be employed, and if there is no surrender, the generals get to try some of their high-tech toys which Brian Williams is so taken with. The best thing is, the hermit kingdom is defanged and/or collapses – the worst is a mushroom cloud over a U.S. city. But at least it will mean the end of the hermit kingdom and the media will claim it as proof that Kim Jong Un was indeed truly a bad guy who had to go (along with the city).

    The "mushroom cloud" will have Israel's fingerprints all over it. Israel cannot (and will not) account for its nukes as they are already pre-positioned in major world cities, waiting for the "Samson Option" to be invoked.
    Even though the nukes are Israeli, you can bet that passports from our favorite "enemy of the week" will be found in the rubble.
    Looking beck through history, jews have always gotten others to do their "dirty work" for them. From Jesus Christ's murder to the various world wars, jews have never fought their own battles. Instead, they cower as "victims", hiding behind their contrived "holocaust ™" and their parasitic destruction of civil (white) societies.
  145. I think that Trump realized early enough (for him) that it’s not worth trying to swim against the current and to try to reform American politics. It’s much easier to be a figurehead and let the deep state (or the establishment) do the real work and just sit back and relax, satisfied that history will remember him no matter what, even if he actually doesn’t do anything, just for the fact that he managed to get on the list of US presidents.

    I believe that Trump was sincere when he outlined his goals as president during the campaign – reforming the immigration, improving the relationship with Russia, discontinuing the never ending wars. It’s just that the beast (deep state) proved too powerful.

    It’s becoming obvious that American presidency is mostly ceremonial position, the deep state is always in power no matter what, the charade of the elections is mostly to put the fools at ease that they are being asked to contribute to the “democratic process” and that their opinion is taken into account. In a way it is, but it’s meaningless, because the vote doesn’t really decide anything, the real power is behind the curtains.

    This is obvious by the fact that no matter who is in the white house, American policies never change. Such continuity wouldn’t be possible if there were any real differences between the parties and the candidates. The American president is a front man of a band, but he does as much of the actual singing as Milli Vanilli used to do.

    I know that sounds absurd superficially – accusing someone of being “like Hitler”, only to be placated when the person behaves “like Hitler”. The paradox is resolved in understanding that neocon antipathy toward Hitler is rooted in tribalism, not ideology. Neocons don’t despise Hitler’s ideology when that ideology is detached from the context and identities of the people Hitler was for or against. In fact, neocons are a lot like Hitler ideologically – and believe in the same things he did. His fault for them is grounded in partisanship. He was “someone else’s sonofabitch” and “against us”. If Hitler was “on our team” and “our sonofabitch” , they’d be ecstatic.

    Many, many years ago I read in some obscure art journal an essay by Umberto Eco (in pre internet era) pointing out how Nazi ideology about the Ubermensch, racial purity... was lifted from Judaism. I could not find it on internet and I do not remember the name of the journal. It is possible that the essay was scrubbed from internet.

    Already in 1930/40 Polish historian and philosopher, Feliks Koneczny (He founded the original system of the comparative science of civilizations.) attacked Nazi ideology as being a replication of Jewish ideology


    Koneczny did not tie civilization type to any particular race or nation. Hence, Poles could represent the Turanian type of civilization [...] and Germans could represent the Jewish type. Shockingly, in his publication Hitleryzm zażydzony ('The Judaized Hitlerism') Koneczny claimed that Adolf Hitler was an example of the Jewish civilization type. On the other hand, an ethnic Jew could represent the Latin type of civilization.
     
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feliks_Koneczny

    Feliks Koneczny realizes that Nazism is the strongest form of anti-Semitism, yet he suggests that it is, in a sense, a copy of Jewish civilization. [The scientifically-minded reader may think of matter and antimatter. They are similar, yet opposites.] This is in the sense that Nazism copies the Chosen People and Chosen Race concept. (p. 362, 365). In addition, both systems rely on monolatry. The monolatry in Judaism has already been discussed. As for Nazism, the Germans have a revived tribal war god in Wotan, or in a form of Germanized Christianity (e. g, DEUTSCHE GOTT). (pp. 363-364).

  147. I’m with the author on this. Trump betrayed his base. The bombing of Syria was Bush I’s “Read my lips”. I’m off the Trump Train. Not so much against Trump but America is off the rails. The US Military is infected with Freemasonry and its globalist agenda that comes from Jewish Messianism. Kushner and Ivanka are democrats, bleeding heart liberals, are driving policy. McMaster, Like McCain, are mad Scotsmen who bought the globalist baloney gobbledygook. The media is wagging the dog. America is a three-ring-circus. America is a mad-house. Delusion is the name of the game. I believed in Trump’s Inaugural Speech. It was terrific. Trump abandoned his own platform and hence we abandon him.

    That bombing of Syria is in America’s “national security”? The butchering of language that statement implies, shows the madness of the American mind. That a bunch of rebels with media in hand can make a “superpower” dance their tune shows the utter lunacy of the American political class and media. They wanted to be fooled.

    I have nothing but utter disgust and contempt for all of this. Good-bye Trump. Hey Trump, clone some McMasters and Kushners because you’re going to need new voters. Good-bye.

    Iffy. I am glad you asked that question, thank you.

    Lets's leave Israel out of it, for a change of conversation. Imagine no Israel , at least in the ME. The average IQ of Arabs is about 85, like US Blacks. Blacks in Africa left to themselves now for several decades, are chaotic. There is no other word for it.

    Not even tribal really. Gangs yes. But African black IQ is 67-70. American Blacks, left to themselves would probably wind up like other countries with Average IQ at 85, whether ARab and Iranian, or heavily mestizo countries in S. America, like Columbia ( 84),
    el Salvador 80, Fiji, (85), Peru (85), and others, Tajikistan(87). Turkmenistan (87) and so on... Burma (87), Malaysia (92) but that number like in other countries (Brazil ) in Lynn are not reliable because of the Chinese, or the White respectively in Brazil, which is about half white.

    That is an optimistic guess with regard to American blacks, given their impulsiveness, etc.

    Without Israel, I would guess that Arab and Iranians would be problematic, even without oil. Maybe oil makes them more problematic. Imagine US Blacks with oil...think Nigeria.

    So it is worth considering that the ME without Jews/Israel/oil, would be a problematic place, with large scale migration efforts northward, just as Africa is demonstrating now. A billion Africans in Africa now. 500 plus million Arabs and Iranians at ? 70 million.

    So we probably would have a muzzie problem no matter what (no Israel ). The muzzies seem to have been at war with themselves to a large degree for a long time.

    Never mind their several invasions of Europe ever since they first got going...as muslims in 700 or so.

    So along comes Trump, Wilders, Le Pen, those guys in Poland, and Hungry, and , and...the mexicans, and and, and. And, economic woes for the working classes of both Europe and the US.

    Globalism, and all the rest of it. Something's got to give. And , it is getting racialized in spades.

    The Counter-Revolution is here, with our without the Jews. Yes they lead the Revolution, and are the most hysterical today in opposing the racializaiton of our beginning. All to the better.

    Jared Taylor, who in my opinion is one of the best of us, has stayed away from the Jewish Question probably for good reason. It does not help us to get screwy about Jews. Do you want a Europe and the US without Coloreds...the Very First Thing, or do you want to keep on keeping on about The Jews? Either or?

    Secondly, the jews are in very hot water with the Left. Zion is a 4 letter word. Let that continue to bedevil the Jews, and otherwise leave them alone, in other words, Trumpism is going to continue possibly faster without whining about the Jews all the time. They are going to be with us because Christianity has a love affair with them...especially Protestants....for a very long time

    Anyhow, that is an argument.

    The missiles is probably a one shot deal, as a demonstration of muscle. The first battle for ourselves is ourselves, not the Arabs. Save the White race ...that is the issue.

    Trump will be Successful if he drives the counter-revolution forward. Some here apparently say it is going to fizzle out. Ok, how about an argument? Also, the jews always shoot themselves in the foot, by insulting everybody they don't like. Hubris, which really is the Entire Story of the Jews.
    They go too far in their Darwinian character...with No friends except fellow crackpot religion types, as in many Christians.

    What kind of father allows his daughter to marry someone who not only practices an extreme form of a religion whose goals are inimical to that of his own, but also to convert?

    He might as well have given his blessing to his daughter to marry a man in ISIS.

    The key here is Ivanka. Trump may be an alpha in many respects but he's a quivering beta when it comes to Daddy's Little Girl. She gets what she wants whether it's a pony or the right to influence foreign policy decisions because of sad pictures. Unfortunately the influential Zionists behind her husband have figured this out and know that they have a direct conduit through to Trump from his daughter.

    He should have put his foot down years ago when she started dating Kushner but he didn't.

    For all intents and purposes, when it comes to foreign policy, Hillary was elected.

    There is an article at Rense that makes a plausible case that the Trumps are crypto-Jews. In which case, Ivanka’s ‘conversion’ has a different meaning than if, say, Kushner were a Chabad connected Jew with secret longings to make America great again. (All four adult Trump children have Jewish partners — coincidence?) Looks like we were had, especially when you see the give-aways to the financial mega-Jews and the Israelis. Looks like the invasion and occupation of a critical slice of Syria is on, along with the sucking up of Golan oil by Rothschild, Cheney and Murdoch. Unless the Russians fight for their lives, and even give nukes to Iran and Syria. The dumb thing is that America had a chance to go with sane and just Muslims, against Wahhabist and Zionist inhumanity, and earn the respect of the world. The world would have stayed with the dollar, on the way to a more sustainable system. And now? Chaos.

    These are some reasons why American Jews chose Donald Trump as Grand Marshall of the annual Israel Day Parade in New York. Mr. Trump’s policies, his staunch pro-Israel advisors and his personal ties to the Jewish people are why they will choose him as the next President of the United States."

    So, here you are. It was all planned and admirably executed. Chabad produces Messiahs! What's more alarming is the reinterpretations (which go on for a number of years now) of the prophecies of Ezekiel to make them mean the destruction of the armies of Gog and Magog who attack Israel at the end of times, on the 'mountains of Israel' (Golan?). Firmly Gog Magog is identified with Russia and her 'prince'. The prophecy includes Iran also.

    I admire your erudite comments and wonder if what you refer to as prophesies could also be described as say, blueprints of strategies to be followed, that are being followed? Thanks.
  151. These are all top level leadership questions, but, it was ground level social dissatisfaction that led to Trump’s election – and it’s still growing. It’s a process of polarization with hardening positions, red-blue social separation and disappearing bi-partisanship.

    Putin’s route to power followed a different route.

    He was already a client of the Russian global plutocracy, but rightly saw a stronger base in Russian nationalism and changed sides, with the key action probably being the arrest of nº 1 plutocrat Khodorkovsky.

    No doubt Putin could do this because he had a strong link to Russia’s security services, but Trump can’t, because he clearly can’t get control the CIA and the FBI. In other words Trump isn’t powerful enough to take down the US plutocracy, and he knows it, and is probably cooperating to survive.

    The result seems to be that the underlying polarization just gets worse, and could well reach a limit (e.g. Spain 1938), with a slide into open conflict between (in this case) international ZioGlobs and US Nationalists.

    In Spain, the Bolshevik inspired left gained command of most of the mainland army and police and took control of Madrid, Barcelona and central Spain. They imposed a dictatorship, controlled the press, and filled prisons with mostly traditionalist middle class opponents, prior to the first tit for tat murders and full Civil War. Churches were attacked and many detainees eventually transported and liquidated at killing sites like Paracuellos de Jarama. ( good source : “The Red Terror and the Spanish Civil War” by Julius Ruiz https://www.amazon.com/Red-Terror-Spanish-Civil-Revolutionary/dp/1107682932/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1491918769&sr=8-1&keywords=the+red+terror+and+the+spanish+civil+war%2C+ruiz ).

    An alternative could be some kind of peaceful separation (e.g. Czechoslovakia dividing into the Czech Republic and Slovakia), although this would be tricky in the American case because of mixed geographic locations – but still, Michael Hart tries to plan it (at county level) in his interesting book, “Restoring America” https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1312875704/ref=nosim/librarythin08-20

    Read your exposition on IQ and apply it to the Jews. The only way to prevent the success of the Ashkenazi Jews and their descendants in a free, open, meritocratic society is to handicap them in some manner with quotas. Not going to happen any time soon, think of practical solutions.

    Travel the paved surface of a good road, like HBD. When things get less clear and you have to go on the dirt road, or even on a path...that is just the way it is.

    History provides us with a couple thousand and more years of behavior from all over the planet.

    Whites have invented just about everything, especially democratic institutions. No other race has invented what we have, especially Free Speech.

    Oriental Despotism is the rule everywhere, or mere chaos as per Africa, etc.

    Smart East Asians are the best/worst oriental despots, with the Arabs close behind, etc.

    The Chinese have been groveling in the dust forever before their emperors, and so on with all the other races. This may be the unpaved road scientifically, but it is simply True from the historical record.

    Jews and Arabs are Semites. Not even in the Indo-European family of languages. Their behaviors are similar. Jews never invented anything like democracy and had to be dragged out of the ghetto by Napoleon. Today, Jews like Dershowitz offers a prize for anyone who can do an end-run around the First Amendment. Etc.

    Years ago around Stanford U. I was involved in leftish protest on Iraq and Israel. A jewish lesbo was promoting an anti-zionist position on campus. She kept on talking about the Establishment of the Jewish State. It took weeks before she finally capitulated to my protest that Establishment was a lie, a la Orwell, and that Conquest was the correct word. Point, Jewish intelligence finally got to her. Arab intelligence will never succumb to objectivity...mostly cuz of stupidity linked to emotion.
    -----------
    Addendum to my thesis that the Jewish Obsession by WN, etc. is probably a hindrance to the development of the populist insurrection in both the US and Europe.

    Populism means a popular , as in most people, uprising against the ruling class or whatever you want to call it. Americans are Christians. They more or less love the jews because of their Christianity. They may be anti-semitic in many ways, but that does not get in the way of their Religion. One of the ways this seeming contradiction is to be seen, is that, like the official Catholic position, the jews have been in revolt against God, but they will return to the Church, etc.

    Trump can continue the populist insurrection all the while holding Jews close to his heart.
    Maybe he will surprise us with regard to Israel. Remember his critical remarks re Israel, and the Jewish Wars. We will see.

    All true too.

    However, in Russian for the Russian speaking audience.
    How many in US will hear it?

    MSM is working 24x7 to spread the lie that Syrian government had anything to do with it. Trump admin warmongers - Nikki the Nut, Tillerson the Troglodyte,etc - are braying for invasion and war with Syria.

    Now Pentagon is floating the charge that supposedly Russia participated in the fake chemical attack.

    These Neocon warmongering psychopaths have completely co-opted hapless Trump.

    We now see the evil genius of the months-long campaign to link Trump with the non-existent alleged Russian meddling in US elections.
    Trump team was unable to shake the charge* and he got spooked.
    He wants to remain POTUS for 4 years, and also another 4.
    So he whored himself to the Neocons hoping they'll leave him alone.
    They won't: now they will go for his jugular, and his base is now no longer sure of him. He will be all alone. Neocons will keep him in office (no impeachment), but will completely neuter and humiliate him, so in Nov Y2020 he will be crushed.

    Nikkis was a warmongering nut all the time.
    But what is puzzling to me is Tillerson: he was a rational man dealing with Russians rationally before he became SecState.
    Now he has gone completely psycho.
    What the heck is going on with these people?

    I read somewhere in one of the post election analysis pieces that almost 30% of those voting for Trump either "had doubts about his truthfulness" or "did not admire him personally ".
    Since these were both, by far, the highest negative evaluations ever registered for a successful U.S. Presidential candidate, ( by his voters remember ) , he is Trump the Teflon no longer- his support is melting like April snow.
    If his candidacy was not a charade all along ( something I believe to be a very distinct possibility ) , he's another fiasco or two away from becoming another Andrew Johnson- a universal object of scorn from all, and I do mean all, quarters.
    With Ms. Clinton as the alternative, doubts could be, and were, choked down.
    Now the man needs to stand on his own merits and I fail to see any.

    a universal object of scorn from all, and I do mean all, quarters

    While that might be true ( though I much doubt it- the Elite really don't care what the Serfs think or say; considering it is beneath them ), what you are suggesting is a variant of the Enemy Of My Enemy Is My Friend approach.
    While in specific circumstances that can be strategically useful, I don't think it applies here:
    1) Trump established and heretofore has drawn his strength by knowing the right rhetorical "hot buttons" to push to a frightened and resentful American population under-going a seemingly irreversible dispossession of wealth, power and security. Rhetoric long on emotion and often short on substance. Whatever unease was generated in his hopeful listeners was dampened by both by the truly god-awful prospect of a Hillary presidency and the fervent hope that "at least his heart is in the right place". The one and only way to judge the location of a man's heart is observation of his actions. Which brings me to:
    2) The logic of The Enemy Of My Enemy etc. is dangerously flawed. It is entirely possible for my enemy's enemy, whether through malice, indifference or plain gross incompetence to do me even more damage than the rogues gallery that you listed.

    Randal,

    There is a Russian word/phrase that dismissively characterizes a counterparty as being temperamentally incapable of honoring an agreement (with the clear implication that one would be a fool to, once this is known, ever trust that counterparty again, as their word means less than nothing). Can't find this recently-encountered word/phrase right now, but I think it quite likely that Trump, the U.S., and its various international poodle-states are now understood to fall under this negative determination; i.e., that they are considered so untrustworthy as to be beneath contempt.

    Nedogovorosposobny – the Saker referenced it again in his latest piece here:

    A Multi-Level Analysis of the US Cruise Missile Attack on Syria and Its Consequences

    It’s imo an extremely apt descriptive term for the modern US regime.

    Also, about the muzzies, we need to carve out a place for good people like Talha and his family and the people at his mosque, he will vouch for them.

    Look, I've told you before, I understand the HBD analysis (strong on the IQ part and weaker on the personality and behavior part) and I think that it is accurate. (I don't buy the MacDonald theory of special Jewishness.) I do not, and will not accept your solutions to the problems until they are absolutely and inconvertibly proven to be the last option.

    Read your exposition on IQ and apply it to the Jews. The only way to prevent the success of the Ashkenazi Jews and their descendants in a free, open, meritocratic society is to handicap them in some manner with quotas. Not going to happen any time soon, think of practical solutions.

    Travel the paved surface of a good road, like HBD. When things get less clear and you have to go on the dirt road, or even on a path…that is just the way it is.

    History provides us with a couple thousand and more years of behavior from all over the planet.

    Whites have invented just about everything, especially democratic institutions. No other race has invented what we have, especially Free Speech.

    Oriental Despotism is the rule everywhere, or mere chaos as per Africa, etc.

    Smart East Asians are the best/worst oriental despots, with the Arabs close behind, etc.

    The Chinese have been groveling in the dust forever before their emperors, and so on with all the other races. This may be the unpaved road scientifically, but it is simply True from the historical record.

    Jews and Arabs are Semites. Not even in the Indo-European family of languages. Their behaviors are similar. Jews never invented anything like democracy and had to be dragged out of the ghetto by Napoleon. Today, Jews like Dershowitz offers a prize for anyone who can do an end-run around the First Amendment. Etc.

    Years ago around Stanford U. I was involved in leftish protest on Iraq and Israel. A jewish lesbo was promoting an anti-zionist position on campus. She kept on talking about the Establishment of the Jewish State. It took weeks before she finally capitulated to my protest that Establishment was a lie, a la Orwell, and that Conquest was the correct word. Point, Jewish intelligence finally got to her.

    Addendum to my thesis that the Jewish Obsession by WN, etc. is probably a hindrance to the development of the populist insurrection in both the US and Europe.

    Populism means a popular , as in most people, uprising against the ruling class or whatever you want to call it. Americans are Christians. They more or less love the jews because of their Christianity. They may be anti-semitic in many ways, but that does not get in the way of their Religion. One of the ways this seeming contradiction is to be seen, is that, like the official Catholic position, the jews have been in revolt against God, but they will return to the Church, etc.

    Trump can continue the populist insurrection all the while holding Jews close to his heart.

    During the campaign, listening to some of Trump's simplistic, belligerent rhetoric left one with the hope - or assumption - that it was aimed at securing the vote of the Joe Six-Pack demographic. So that was smart, wasn't it, and sure to be moderated if by some miracle it worked to secure his victory. But, the rhetoric has not moderated - Trump seems to have not more than a line or two on most topics which he will spew out if prompted.

    Regarding the Syrian strike, maybe it's true that it was an appeasement to the establishment - some meat thrown them in the hopes that the urge to dictate to their lessors can be satiated, and that the new suspect president has it in him to see things their way after all. But if Trump is hoping for a one-off, he is deluding himself - atrocities are easily manufactured.

    Next on the list is getting rid of the hermit kingdom's nukes. The usual threats and such will be employed, and if there is no surrender, the generals get to try some of their high-tech toys which Brian Williams is so taken with. The best thing is, the hermit kingdom is defanged and/or collapses - the worst is a mushroom cloud over a U.S. city. But at least it will mean the end of the hermit kingdom and the media will claim it as proof that Kim Jong Un was indeed truly a bad guy who had to go (along with the city).

    The “mushroom cloud” will have Israel’s fingerprints all over it. Israel cannot (and will not) account for its nukes as they are already pre-positioned in major world cities, waiting for the “Samson Option” to be invoked.
    Even though the nukes are Israeli, you can bet that passports from our favorite “enemy of the week” will be found in the rubble.
    Looking beck through history, jews have always gotten others to do their “dirty work” for them. From Jesus Christ’s murder to the various world wars, jews have never fought their own battles. Instead, they cower as “victims”, hiding behind their contrived “holocaust ™” and their parasitic destruction of civil (white) societies.

    Very doubtful that Eisenhower would have reacted the same way as Trump. Eisenhower knew something about war. WW II, etc; he recognized that the Korean War was unwinnable and that there was nothing to win other than a stalemate; he crushed the Anglo-Franco-Israeli adventure in the Suez; he reacted to the Hungarian uprising in 1956 in a temperate and judicious way. When Eisenhower told a General or an Admiral to jump, the answer was how high.
    Trump is a NYC pretty boy who took the easy way out during the VietNam war; Obama wouldn't know which way to turn a screw driver; W and his insecurities let his Vice President, a draft dodger, ruin his Presidency; and Clinton was an unrepentant self serving draft dodger, and proud of it. In a room filled with fruit salad and scrambled eggs, such as these proved easy pickings for the Generals; and it has showed. God, how it has showed.
    If there is something in Eisenhower's record to suggest that a New York minute after being shown a photograph he would call down a Naval barrage on a target of scant military significance to send the world the signal that he was, after all, not stable, I'm open to learning what it might be.

    The idea that bankers and speculators and arms dealer causeed WW1, and maybe all wars ,whereby they made vast profits was once received wisdom, and I supposed Eisenhower absorbed some of that zeitgeist.

    https://academic.oup.com/ahr/article-abstract/120/2/667/45689/Helen-Bury-Eisenhower-and-the-Cold-War-Arms-Race
    Eisenhower made nuclear armaments more central to U.S. military plans. By ensuring that the United States would promptly respond with atomic weapons to almost any type of Soviet aggression (in a spasmodic act of “massive retaliation”), the need and attendant expense of a large standing army and navy was seemingly obviated.

    Looking for way to save taxpayers’ money (conventional weapons are extremely expensive) Eisenhower loudly proclaimed that he would use nuclear weapons if the Bear put a paw across a border. But it was the “threat of an incredible action” and not a credible deterrent, especially as the US homeland was not at stake . So Eisenhower had the brilliant idea of giving West Germany a finger on the nuclear trigger (the MLF) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3j20voPS0gI

    The Russians, especially Khrushchev, were terrified the Germans with nukes could pull off a nuclear standoff, and with a conventional blitzkrieg under a nuclear umbrella be at the gates of Moscow in short order. (the Russian knew the truth of the Eastern front , and that they could never be a match for the Germans). The result down the line, was the Cold War (a term coined by Eisenhower’s mentor Bernard Baruch, a man of whom Eisenhower said consulting him about his career was the wisest decision he ever made– wise decision indeed, he was catapulted over a slew of other general officers into supreme command) .

    JFK also pursued MLF type nuking up of Germany, and the result was he and Khrushchev took the world uncomfortably close to nuclear war, because Khrushchev was another one who cut conventional weapons and relied on nukes. Makes the military industrial complex seem quite benevolent, doesn’t it eh? Khrushchev was relying on nukes and it brought him down. Fortunately Leonid Brezhnev understood a conventional build up was needed. More artillery and more tanks and planes are essential, especially for a nuclear power, It’s money well spent (the B52 bomber is a good example:a platform that never gets old). Patience I am getting there

    If there is something in Eisenhower’s record to suggest that a New York minute after being shown a photograph he would call down a Naval barrage on a target of scant military significance to send the world the signal that he was, after all, not stable, I’m open to learning what it might be.

    As I have shown Eisenhower had little faith in conventional weapons, he did not tell a few missiles “Your Fired” but he did threaten nuclear weapons use in Korea , probably because it was a stalemate that was causing an expensive conventional build up by the US. Maybe that is an example of the power of nuclear threats, but remember that the Korean war started to the astonishment of the US and CIA, and the Chinese (without nukes) came in to the astonishment of McArthur. All Truman’s threats to use nukes in Korea had no effect. Nuclear weapons have no military purpose–wars cannot be fought with them. So to answer your question, Eisenhower–in a similar situation to Trump right now–would have made empty threats, or made dangerous nuclear initiatives. Look, people join the army to fight and people work in the arms industry (the original funder of all the US advanced technology) for good pay. Eisenhower understood very little about the economy. Again, it was his policies that brought the world the closest it has yet came to nuclear catastrophe.

    Just one thing. Throughout the whole campaign Trump talked about the wall but he never talked about penalizing the employers who hire undocumented workers. There are some laws on the books that are not being currently enforced and probably they could be strengthened with stiffer penalties by an executive order. Talking just about the wall was a sign for me that Trump was not serious about illegals. The wall was just apron in the theatre that after performance can easily be discarded because it never existed and probably newer will. The demand side solution is the fastest and least expensive and most effective one. That's why it is never mentioned and thus not discussed. The wall is just for talking about. But the demand side solution which is the real would get business and the capitalist class really pissed off and Trump has not desire nor balls to ever do it. He is one of them. The alt-right being right treats business as sacred cows. They can't be wrong. Keep in mind that both Koch brothers on the right (including libertarians) and Soros on the left agree 100% on immigration and borders.

    That's why I believe there will be no 2nd or 3rd act. Our hero died already in the 1st act on Thursday. Unfortunately they will not give us money back for the tickets.

    Strange finally one who gets it, the wall was just a talking point for if he really wanted to curb illegals he would have needed to go after those who employees them, and I would take it even further anyone who employee either a green card carrier or an illegal would be liable for their health care, nor would they be allowed to run and apply for food stamps why should the American taxpayer foot the bill, while many working two and three jobs just to feed their families and put a roof over their heads barely make ends meet,its time to put Americans first…

    Great answers by President Putin.
    All true too.

    However, in Russian for the Russian speaking audience.
    How many in US will hear it?

    MSM is working 24x7 to spread the lie that Syrian government had anything to do with it. Trump admin warmongers - Nikki the Nut, Tillerson the Troglodyte,etc - are braying for invasion and war with Syria.

    Now Pentagon is floating the charge that supposedly Russia participated in the fake chemical attack.

    These Neocon warmongering psychopaths have completely co-opted hapless Trump.

    We now see the evil genius of the months-long campaign to link Trump with the non-existent alleged Russian meddling in US elections.
    Trump team was unable to shake the charge* and he got spooked.
    He wants to remain POTUS for 4 years, and also another 4.
    So he whored himself to the Neocons hoping they'll leave him alone.
    They won't: now they will go for his jugular, and his base is now no longer sure of him. He will be all alone. Neocons will keep him in office (no impeachment), but will completely neuter and humiliate him, so in Nov Y2020 he will be crushed.

    Nikkis was a warmongering nut all the time.
    But what is puzzling to me is Tillerson: he was a rational man dealing with Russians rationally before he became SecState.
    Now he has gone completely psycho.
    What the heck is going on with these people?

    * Devin Nunes was neutered and thrown under the bus, as he was closing in on Obama's illegal surveillance .

    They won’t

Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something.

    Alt-Right adjusts to Trump sell-out ... Jared Kushner & Mossad ... Trump bullying of China's Xi

    Fascinating how quickly Trump's Alt-Right supporters are digesting his sell-out & starting to move beyond Trump, noting how super-salesman Trump during his campaign, 'destroyed the Deep State in eyes of voters', & 'that was sufficient from Trump', there is no reversing this ... 'Trump has already done most of his part, great work exposing the evil institutions that are murdering us & destroying the world, & neither the [media] nor the deep state will ever recover from the 2016 election in the eyes of working & middle class people ... [& despite Trump's sell-out - betrayal - corruption] anything more is just a bonus'

    --

    The apparent shadow President - Rasputin - Svengali, not the now-nearly-discarded Bannon, but Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has been raising funds for the Israeli military (Haaretz) ... Kushner & Ivanka Trump joined a (Mossad-tied) Chabad Synagogue attended by Israeli government ministers, & bought a house a short walk away from it (also near Obama's DC house) ... Kushner & Ivanka's synagogue is TheShul led by Rabbi Levi Shemtov, attended by many leading Jewish & Israeli officials, 'including former senator Joe Lieberman & current Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, several Jewish ambassadors posted in Washington, & Israeli Cabinet ministers from the Orthodox parties' ... So every Sabbath Kushner can walk over to receive his Mossad instructions

    Jared Kushner's assistant is (Mr) Avi Berkowitz, cousin of Howard Friedman, the 'first Orthodox Jewish President of AIPAC, the most influential Jewish lobbying group in the US'

    90 Jewish rabbis asked Trump to attack Syria & kill Syrians the day before he did so, & Donald Trump (President Trump-Kushner) was pleased to grant their request, letter & long list of signing rabbis on the Jewish 'Forward' site

    --

    Another aspect of the Syrian attack was Trump's double insult & humiliation of China's President Xi, who was visiting Trump in Florida as the missiles landed ... the timing was no accident, but a specific insult & threat to the Chinese President by Trump & his Jared Kushner / Gary Cohn junta

    Acting just like a New York mob thug bully, Trump smugly announced to Xi that attacks were underway as they spoke, Trump threatening deaths amongst China's close public ally Russia, in other words menacing Xi right to his face ... Trump then doubled Xi's humiliation by menacing China's next door neighbour & half-protégé North Korea, Trump sending warships towards NK as President Xi took his flight back to China ... If you know Asians & their concept of 'face' & being treated with respect, you will understand how major this is

    China is holding fire, but for Xi & China, it's clear that President Trump-Kushner is a low-life deserving no respect or trust whatsoever, & that USA gov has gone over the edge ... No wonder some say 'Trump is a faux president & stalking horse who has been installed to bring down what’s left of the U.S. system & economy' (NewNationalist), i.e., Trump's task is to just collapse America & maybe blow up the world too

    Very well reasoned and very well put. Thank you.

    Donald Trump’s dizzying about-face on Syria is hardly turning on his friends. Assad is nothing to Trump and neither is Putin.
     
    The friends he turned on were us, the Alt-Right, the people who elected him.

    I know the Alt-Right seems small in number, so it's understandable ask how we can take the credit for electing Trump. But the small group of people calling itself the Alt-Right are in reality but the thought-leaders and captains of a much wider White Nationalist movement that is currently aborning and is largely unaware of itself. It was our platform that Trump ran on, whether he knows it or not. It was our meming and Keyboard-warring that got the message out and counteracted the CRT Soros trolls. We provided the strength, the leadership, and the philosophy that brought the Trump Train into the station. We are quite conscious of this; and so, by the way, are our enemies on the Left.

    And one of our central tenets has been to stop the US Deep State and the Israeli Deep State (really one and the same thing) from using the United States to fight wars of empire in the Middle East. We endorse what Assad and Putin are doing in Syria because they protect Christians, fight Islamists, and are working for an acceptable international modus vivendi.

    Trump just threw all that in the toilet bowl by acting like a braggadocious nincompoop. This is not just a narrow, hairsplitting ideological dispute. He has betrayed all Christians and men of good will. We are not entirely surprised, but we are for more disappointed than surprised. The betrayal is wide-ranging and grave.

    Another commenter suggested that the Alt-Right lead the way in being the anti-war Americans. This powerful psychographic encompasses a vast and divergent spread of people and it is there for the taking and prime for near total ownership.

    Imagine the numbers possible by harnessing the passions of the young people using social media to spread the message. Turning a weapon of the Glob against them.

  172. “…To undermine the “Trump is beholden to Putin/the Russians ‘hacked’ the election” narrative that Democrats have been pushing because they are incapable of taking responsibility for Hillary Clinton’s disastrous candidacy…”

    My thinking at first was the same as yours but with a little time I began to think the quote above may be possible. The Syrian strike was to no effect at all. It may even be a lie that anyone was killed. I don’t think we really know what Trump will do. I’ve gone back and forth on whether he’s a Jewish agent or not. He’s certainly under a great deal of pressure. He also has the Jews and the deep State by the balls on 9-11 and Sandy Hook at the least. It’s very possible that he’s lining up people for a fall and is in the process of investigating them right now, This would take a great deal of time because of the difficultly of finding honest investigators.

    People keep saying Trump is stupid but we’ve seen him in controversy before and he always seems to come out on top. Even this latest glitch he’s destroyed the “Russian Spy” narrative. People who think knew it was nonsense all along but among those who don’t he decisively proved he’s not a tool of Putin.

    I like to think of Trump as like Detective Colombo. He seems to be wandering around to no purpose. A bumbling fool but in the end he gets his Man. It wouldn’t surprise me if I was wrong but I’m willing to hold judgement.

    "....Mr. Trump’s ties to Jews and Israel go beyond policy. They also go beyond his loving support and encouragement of his religiously observant Jewish daughter and son-in-law and his pride in his Jewish grandchildren. Donald Trump’s love of the Jewish people dates back many decades. Senior observant Jewish executives in the Trump Organization recall being encouraged to stop deals on Friday afternoons so they can go home to their families to observe the Sabbath.
    Mr. Trump has disavowed any support from anti-Semites, just as I hope Mrs. Clinton disavows support from anti-Israel groups that support her. I proudly wear my kippa to Trump Tower and receive support and encouragement from the campaign to take off every Sabbath and every Jewish holiday (of which there have been many in October), crucial days lost for any campaign. But supporting Jews is what Mr. Trump has done all his life.
    These are some reasons why American Jews chose Donald Trump as Grand Marshall of the annual Israel Day Parade in New York. Mr. Trump’s policies, his staunch pro-Israel advisors and his personal ties to the Jewish people are why they will choose him as the next President of the United States."

    So, here you are. It was all planned and admirably executed. Chabad produces Messiahs! What's more alarming is the reinterpretations (which go on for a number of years now) of the prophecies of Ezekiel to make them mean the destruction of the armies of Gog and Magog who attack Israel at the end of times, on the 'mountains of Israel' (Golan?). Firmly Gog Magog is identified with Russia and her 'prince'. The prophecy includes Iran also.

    I admire your erudite comments and wonder if what you refer to as prophesies could also be described as say, blueprints of strategies to be followed, that are being followed? Thanks.

    Yes, absolutely. This is precisely what they are. The authentic prophecies, i.e. the predictions about future events contained in the Sacred Books of authentic traditions made under spiritual influences were no more than 'predictions' made using different techniques of divination. They were made to suggest a course of action in particular circumstances. The prophecies of the OT and the much abused 'Revelation' of St. John did refer to situations contemporneous with the authors. But they offer themselves to subsequent manipulation and permanent 'recycling' by newly 'inspired' interpreters who would engineer the 'apocalyptic' expectations for the psychological manipulation of the masses to be sent in Crusades or Jihads. There is a long history of re-invention of 'prophecies'. But a constant in all is the re-instauration of the "Kingdom of Israel" with the rebuilding of the Temple of Jerusalem ('the eternal capital of Israel').

    I forgot to add: all of Sam's people at his synagogue.

    Also, about the muzzies, we need to carve out a place for good people like Talha and his family and the people at his mosque, he will vouch for them.

    Look, I've told you before, I understand the HBD analysis (strong on the IQ part and weaker on the personality and behavior part) and I think that it is accurate. (I don't buy the MacDonald theory of special Jewishness.) I do not, and will not accept your solutions to the problems until they are absolutely and inconvertibly proven to be the last option.

    Read your exposition on IQ and apply it to the Jews. The only way to prevent the success of the Ashkenazi Jews and their descendants in a free, open, meritocratic society is to handicap them in some manner with quotas. Not going to happen any time soon, think of practical solutions.

    I don’t buy the MacDonald theory of special Jewishness.

    He always emphasizes that Jews have similar behavioral patterns and personality characteristics as others, albeit in different proportions. Unless you think Jews are totally absolutely the same as gentiles, you might perhaps agree to that.

    Obviously I agree with the fact of superior median IQ of the Ashkenazi. I suspect that they likely have a stronger ethnocentric bias. Certainly the IQ profile does not apply to the non-Ashkenazi and I don't know about the ethnocentric bias.

    Sorry, but I'm not buying the author here.

    Trump is not stupid. He did not fall for some stunt, and he wasn't tricked by anyone. He knew exactly what he is doing.

    Keep in mind that Trump has visited with several ME leaders recently. And what do you think they talked about? Most likely the Syria problem and how much better all parties would be if they got rid of Asad.

    Who are his economic advisors? Goldman guys who understand how the petrodollar dollar works.

    So Trump basically figured that the best way to promote American interests, and (((other))) interests as well would be to support the petrodollar dollar in order to prevent a collapse and to protect his friends in Isreal.

    That is how he is framing bombing Asad with MAGA.

    Trump doesn't want to rule during a great depression and doesn't want to disappoint (((them))).

    Ahh yes,bombing Assad for (((them))) that’s how we avoid depression…THE BUSINESS OF AMERICA IS BU…being the shabboz goy ((( as usual ))).

    “The most plausible explanation for the Syria pivot comes from Seventh Son at The Daily Shoah (Episode #145). When Trump was asked about the gas attack by a reporter at the news conference with King Abdullah of Jordan, he saw it as an opportunity for abusing Obama as a weak little girl for declaring a red line in Syria and then backing down when Assad crossed it rather than acting decisively. When asked if this attack crossed any red lines for him, Trump of course had to agree and amplify, lest he too be a weak little girl like Obama.

    In short, Trump painted himself into a corner with his big mouth, his adolescent Alpha posturing, and his fixation on denigrating Obama, and since acknowledging mistakes has never been Trump’s strong suit, it was child’s play for the establishment to spring into action and funnel him into launching airstrikes. The politicians, pundits, and masses are well-programmed with Jewish talking points. All they needed was an opening, then all the ”
