Trump

Now we all know that many of those who are hating on Donald Trump are doing so because he is threatening the cozy-crony-politico-predatory-capitalist system that has made so many of them fat and rich. He is intending to break their rice bowls as the Chinese would put it or, in a more American vernacular, the gravy train might be ending. To be sure The Donald is warning that he will do just that, even if he will find in practice, if elected, that turning the ship of state around might well be a task beyond the ability of any aspirant to the presidency.

But while pure self-interest might well be driving many of the chattering nonentities that populate our congress and the senior political appointee ranks in government there is something nevertheless extraordinary in the level of venom and sheer hatred that is being spewed at random about a potential Trump administration. It is not uncommon to read or hear that Trump is seeking to overturn the Constitution of the United States and establish a dictatorship that will promote his allegedly warped views of what must be done to correct America’s domestic and foreign policies, suggesting that our form of government is so fragile that it can be subverted by one man.

The anger directed against Trump is unique, one might note, as it also includes demands to somehow overturn the popular will expressed in primaries and caucuses to obtain a candidate that is more in tune with what the Republican establishment is seeking to promote as the “national consensus.” That Trump is voicing an overwhelming American middle class perspective on the evils of mass illegal immigration matters not a whit to the Mandarins whose only concerns on that issue center on the availability of a supply of cheap labor to clean their McMansions and swimming pools.

The anti-Trump effort is being well funded, has included notable defections to the Democratic Party, has led to lists of Republican politicians who will not accept a Trump nomination or support a President Trump, and has even produced calls for a third party neo-Republican entity to run against him. Some other reactions are stupid, including Canadian neocon Mark Dubowitz of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, calling for even more immigrants to the U.S., while talk radio extremist Glenn Beck has tweeted that if he had a knife and were able to get close to Trump he would have to keep on stabbing him.

To be sure, Trump has provided considerable fuel for the fire through his extraordinary ad libs about banning Muslims from the U.S., killing the families of terrorists and using torture. But mainstream politicians have already recommended and even done that much and more without the level of censure that Trump is receiving. Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush have engaged in widespread killing of civilians, torture and assassinating families of suspected militants, to include American citizens, without any of the invective being leveled at Trump.

Indeed, Trump would appear to have a more sensible foreign policy in mind, consisting of avoiding unnecessary wars and “regime changes,” honoring the multilateral negotiated agreement with Iran, engaging diplomatically even with heads of state that we consider to be adversaries and encouraging Russia to fight ISIS. His three current opponents have recommended “carpet bombing” areas controlled by ISIS, fusing Syrian sand into nuclear radiating glass, provoking wars with both Russia and China, arming Ukraine, punching Vladimir Putin in the nose and sending in thousands of American soldiers to the Middle East. They are not in the least bothered by fattening up the already fat national security state with trillions more dollars while domestic needs go unaddressed. So who is the crazy one?

But there is one significant difference between Trump and the “establishment,” be they Democrats or Republicans that has not been highlighted. I would suggest that quite a lot of the depth and intensity of what we are experiencing is actually about Israel. Trump is the first high level politician aspirant within living memory to challenge the notion that the United States must stand by Israel no matter what Israel does. Even while affirming his affection for Israel, he has said that Washington must be even handed in its efforts to bring about peace between Israelis and Palestinians, implying that Tel Aviv might have to make concessions.

Trump has also added insult to injury by delinking himself from the blandishments of Jewish political mega-donors, who largely call the tune for many in the GOP and among the Democrats, by telling them he doesn’t need their money and can’t be bought. His comments have challenged conventional interest group politicking in American and have predictably produced a firestorm reaction in the usual circles. Robert Kagan announced that he would be supporting Hillary, who famously has declared that she would immediately call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu upon taking office as a first step in moving the relationship with Tel Aviv to “the next level.” It is to be presumed that Kagan and his fellow neocons will be experiencing a welcoming vibe from at least some of the Democrats as the neoconservatives have always been liberals at heart on nearly all issues except foreign policy, rooted by them in the “unshakable and bipartisan bond” with Israel.

It is my opinion that the “I” word should be banned from American political discourse. Ironically, many American Jews are themselves uneasy about the place occupied by Israel in ongoing political debates, recognizing that it is both unhealthy in a democracy and reflective only of the extreme views of the hardline members of their own diaspora community. It is also unpleasantly all about Jews and money since the Republicans and other mouthpieces now piling on Trump are motivated largely by their own sinecures and the Sheldon Adelson type donations that might be forthcoming to the politically savvy candidates who say the right things about the conflict in the Middle East.

Slate’s Isaac Chotiner has noted a particularly odd speech by Senator Marco Rubio in which he spoke of his single electoral triumph in Minnesota before immediately jumping to the issue of Israel, as if on cue or by rote. It is a tendency that is not unique to him. I read through the transcript of the GOP debate that preceded Rubio’s sole victory, which in part reflected a competition to see who could promise to do most for Israel. Senator Ted Cruz stated that he “would stand unapologetically with the nation of Israel…and the alliance with Israel.” Governor John Kasich declared that he’s “been a supporter of Israel – a strong supporter of Israel longer than anyone on this stage.” Senator Marco Rubio indicated that “I will be on Israel’s side every single day because they are the only pro-American, free enterprise democracy in the entire Middle East.” Ben Carson called Israel not only a strategic partner but also an element in America’s “Judeo Christian foundation” that can never be rejected.

Quite a few assertions about Israel made by politicians are, of course, nonsense. It is not in alliance with the United States and is not a democracy for starters, but the real question becomes why is Israel part of the debate at all? It is because of concerns that the deep pocketed donors like Sheldon Adelson will join his good friend Haim Saban in funding Hillary if candidates do not say what he expects to hear. Saban has referred to Trump as a “clown” and attacked him because he would be “dangerous for Israel.”

And then there is the recent attack of the Beltway Midgets, a “a strongly worded letter” orchestrated by Eliot Cohen, a former Condoleezza Rice State Department appointee whose attachment to Israel might well be regarded as demented, that attracted the signatures of more than one hundred self-described GOP foreign policy “leaders,” declaring that “We are unable to support a party ticket with Mr. Trump at its head.” Quite a few of the signatories are well known neocons, including Max Boot, Robert Zoellick, Michael Chertoff, Eric Edelman, Reuel Marc Gerecht, Daniel Pipes, Michael Rubin, Kori Schake, Randy Scheunemann, Gary Schmitt, Ray Takeyh and Philip Zelikow. Boot has vilified Trump as “emerging as the number one threat to American security.” All the signatories were passionate supporters of the Iraq War, which Trump has correctly disparaged as a catastrophic foreign policy failure, and all of them are describable as strong supporters of Israel.

The friends of Benjamin Netanyahu in the United States rightly fear that someday the American people and government will come to their senses and regard Israel as just another friendly foreign state, without any “special relationship” attached. To counter that possibility, the lashing out against any public figure who dares to criticize Israel is both immediate and visceral. Note, for example, the fate of former President Jimmy Carter who was virtually excommunicated by the Democratic Party after he condemned Israeli treatment of the Palestinians.

But what the neocon subset of Israel’s powerful lobby fears most is something quite different – becoming irrelevant. They have weathered being wrong about nearly everything but what they particularly fear is finding themselves without a major political party whose foreign policy they can manipulate because that would cut off their funding from defense contractors and pro-Israel zealots. They will have to give up the emoluments that they have accumulated since hijacking the GOP under Ronald Reagan. They might have to abandon their corner offices and secretaries and could even have to find real jobs. And what would the Sunday morning talk shows be like without the Cheshire cat grin of Bill Kristol?

The end of the hypocrisy driven neocon ascendancy in foreign policy will be welcomed by many. Dan McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute has described the Trump hating neocons as “…soft skinned and well-perfumed keyboard warriors who eagerly send America’s sons and daughters to be slaughtered in wars that achieve nothing but the ascendance of new ‘bad guys’ used to justify ever more wars. And all of it pays very nicely for them.” Exactly.

  2. Why would anyone hate Trump? The author thinks it requires special explanation, but there are plenty of reasons:

    1. He’s a liar and a flip-flopper.

    2. He advocate killing the families of terrorists and other immoral acts.

    2.a. He thinks that the murderous conduct of terrorists justifies something of the same from America.

    3. He’s an ostentatious parvenu.

    4. He degrades political discourse to the level of the crudest ad hominem.

    These are just a few that come to mind. I’m not saying, all things considered, his opponents aren’t as bad. But to pretend that some special explanation is needed for why many people hate Trump is fake naivete. The above are morally detestable characteristics.

  5. The subtitle (“It could be about Israel”) is very generous. Of course it’s about Israel. Or, perhaps more generally, it’s about elite Jewish paranoia about goyim recognizing they have their own interests that may diverge from that of said Jewish elite. That the lay person–Jew or Gentile–reacts so violently to this mere assertion is part of the testament to its truth, IMHO.

  6. Rubio Announces His Neocon Dream Team

    Among the 18 members of Rubio’s new “National Security Advisory Council,” which his campaign announced on Monday, are Elliott Abrams, a former special assistant to President George W. Bush who’s best known for lying to Congress about the Reagan administration’s role in the Iran-Contra scandal; Eliot Cohen, a historian, Iraq war supporter, and lawyer at the State Department during the Bush administration; Michael Chertoff, the secretary of homeland security during Bush’s second term; and Michael Mukasey, a Bush administration attorney general.

  7. It is instructive to look at the successful run by long time pro Palestinian activist Jeremy Corbyn for the leadership of the Labour Party in Britain. He received the full barrage of media attacks, just like Trump, as well as well funded opponents, however he won nonetheless. Indeed he won so big with 60% of the vote that there was no need for a second or third round of voting as usually happens. The margin of victory was important because since his election he has faced repeated attempts to destabilise his leadership by his own MPs as well as a continuing barrage by the media. The plus side for Trump is I believe he is a stronger character and more natural leader than Corbyn. So whilst I expect Trump will continue to be pressured I am still confident he could get a lot done, the Presidency carries a lot of power, and I suspect he will find more allies than are letting on at the moment.

    The irony is given his family, business and personal connections I suspect he is broadly pro Israeli, just he will always put America first and that he doesn’t conflate Israeli interests solely with zionist interests.

    It’s either Trump or the globalists. America or the globalists. If they succeed taking down Trump with their 24/7 attacks and calumny, it confirms the globalist control can’t be fucked with. Even a billionaire business titan like Trump, with backing from other Jewish billionaire business titans, is not powerful enough to take on the globalist power structure.

    But the people have a choice. The Republicans supporting Cruz are supporting someone who can’t win the general election, and they’re facilitating a future which will be orders of magnitude more inhospitable to their way of life. And I’m going to have zero tolerance for conservative bitching about gun bans, federal hate laws against opponents of gay marriage, etc. And I’ll also have zero tolerance for a lot of conservatives who fret about neo-con foreign policy, like Bacevich, who excoriated Trump because of his demeanor among other superficial crap. Really?

    At Secretive Meeting, Tech CEOs And Top Republicans Commiserate, Plot To Stop Trump

    Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, Napster creator and Facebook investor Sean Parker, and Tesla Motors and SpaceX honcho Elon Musk all attended. So did Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), political guru Karl Rove, House Speaker Paul Ryan, GOP Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), Tim Scott (S.C.), Rob Portman (Ohio) and Ben Sasse (Neb.), who recently made news by saying he “cannot support Donald Trump.”

    Along with Ryan, the House was represented by Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Fred Upton (Mich.), Rep. Kevin Brady (Texas) and almost-Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), sources said, along with leadership figure Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.), Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-Ga.), Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (Texas) and Diane Black (Tenn.).

    It’s more complex than that because Trump and a good percentage of his supporters could correctly be considered Zionists. It’s more like a globalist/neocon/Zionist/political lobby/etc.

  15. Mr. Giraldi – Donald Trump is not against the Zionist/Jewish Wall Street parasites. In fact he is one of them. He is also 100% pro-Israel and anti-Muslims. However, he is still hated by the Organized Jewry. Why?

    A recent survey conducted among Israeli Jews claimed that 67% of them prefer Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump to be the next US president.

    Let’s not forget; Israel-First Glenn Beck called Donald Trump, a modern day Adolf Hitler, and the NWO expert Alex Jones called Donald Trump, Judas Goat.

    Michael Collin Piper in his 2004 book, ‘The New Jerusalem: Zionist Power in America’ exposed Trump’s business links with Rothschild, Rockefeller, CIA and Israeli Mossad.

    On March 6, 2016, Canadian Jew academic, Henry Makow, PhD, claimed on his website that Illuminati are using Donald Trump to expose the Jewish hands behind 9/11 in order to “usher an era of antiemitism designed to transfer American Jews to Eretz Yisrael (Greater Israel).”

  16. “These are just a few that come to mind. I’m not saying, all things considered, his opponents aren’t as bad. But to pretend that some special explanation is needed for why many people hate Trump is fake naivete. The above are morally detestable characteristics.”

    None of your enumerated reasons explains the uniform hatred for Trump among the commentariat.

    1. Flip-flopping is part and parcel of our political system. It’s pathetic but has never evoked the kind of thing we are seeing now.

    2. In 2012, no Republican candidate except Ron Paul was willing to condemn unequivocally the use of torture by the US. And Hillary’s “We came, we saw, he died” is a monstrous celebration of the torture-death of Qaddafi and the chaos we have sown across the ME. Trump’s words in that respect are worthy of condemnation but are much less bad than the ACTS of many others which fail to elicit the same sort of caterwauling.

    3. Being an “ostentation parvenu” is hardly a justification for the obsessive rants we have seen against Trump. In fact, if that phrase were applied to some others, it would generate a snivelling complaint of “anti-semitism.”

    4. When these hypocritical neocons were labeling France as “cheese-eating surrender monkeys” because they refused to partake in the illegal invasion of Iraq, where was the whining about debased political discourse?

    Giraldi is undoubtedly right. Part of the pathological hatred of Trump–a big part–is driven by his unwillingness to play the game of groveling before the priesthood of Israel fanatics and war-lovers.

  17. Daniel McAdams’ commentaries are indeed insightful and entertaining.

    I trust that while the neocon dogs of war howl, that the caravan of common sense that Trump has decided to travel with, keeps moving. Hopefully, right out of the Middle East morass of wars, backstabbings and regime changes.

    A most sensible commentary, Phil.

    This pretty much nails it right here. Personally, I don’t dislike Israel; I think that of all the places in the Middle East, it’s probably the nicest, most stable, and most modern. I’m not really a fan of the Arabs, who often conduct themselves as ululating savages.

    That being said, why should Israel be OUR concern? There’s no substantive reason for the Israeli fetish that the U.S. has. Israel should be just regarded like Norway or Denmark: God bless ‘em, nice little place to visit, but not a country we should be obsessing over continually and our presidential candidates and congressmen kowtowing over. And why are we giving them $3 billion a year in U.S. taxpayer dollars?

    Uncle Sam has no dog in the Israeli fight. Walt and Mearsheimer were correct: the Israeli lobby is far too influential. Jewish opinion makers and neocon policymakers are perched on the neck of this country like vampires. I don’t like Arabs or Muslims, but I can understand why they might view Israel as practically being the 51st state, and regard the U.S. as a Jew-controlled country.

  24. As usual, my former colleague Phil Giraldi has hit the nail on the head. The campaign of hatred against Trump is primarily due to his refusal to kow-two to Israel and its traitor agents in the United States. And, as usual, a large part of the American electorate is too stupid and ignorant of how things really work in our government to understand this. Unfortunately for the Neo-Con´s and their Israeli handlers, more and more people are waking up, including an ever-increasing number of American Jews. They, too, are fed up with this Neo-Con treachery. In addition, being somewhat smarter and more informed than the average Joe, they understand all too well that the worm is turning. A growing minority of the American people know what is going on and they are losing their fear of saying it out loud. If Trump is cheated of victory by a crowd of greaseballs and George Will types their rage will be felt across the country – and eventually that rage will focus on a particular group as the enemies of America. The toothpaste is out of the tube and it ain´t going back in no matter what happens. On another note, to sit and watch Rubio, Cruz, Kasich and the others pee all over themselves while they grovel to the Zionists is enough to make any decent American reach for his gun.

    Trump’s discourse is rather mild compared to past political attacks on opponents. Politics has always been a wallow in the mud.

    You write that Trump plans on “honoring the multilateral negotiated agreement with Iran.” Is that true or did you just make it up? I’ve never heard him say anything about it other than that it’s “a terrible deal” under which “we g[i]ve them billions of dollars” (without mentioning that we stole it from them in the first place).

  31. Interesting: http://thesaker.is/is-there-any-reason-to-hope-for-france/

    “When the dissidents explain that Washington and Israel plan to turn Europe into second-tier economies, the French understand it’s no exaggeration, and that they are the victims. The larger picture is that the empire sees a unified Eurasia market and 1.5 billion people as a colossus that threatens the empire – so it must be broken up. That means Europe’s best and most competitive industries must be made uncompetitive, and that economic ties between Europe and Russia must be permanently broken up…
    Fixing the damage from the sanctions can’t wait until the last minute. You can hear tires screeching on the pavement with the recent abrupt U-turn by Jean-Claude Juncker [the President of the European Commission] that Ukraine won’t become an EU member for 20-25 years.
    Why the U-turn on the sanctions and Ukraine’s drive to join the EU ? It’s damage control in the face of at least two large failures. First and most immediately, is to recognize the failure of the Ukraine gamble. American neocons gambled they could overthrow Ukraine’s elected government and then turn that nation of 43 million people into an instrument to threaten Russia, but the gamble has proven to be a colossal failure. Neocons in the US State Department expected the Nazis (real Nazis, Banderistas with an unbroken heritage from the massacres of the 1940’s) and the kleptocratic oligarchs to be puppets o a US leash while the US looted the place. After two years, Ukraine is bankrupt and on the verge of a humanitarian disaster. The military aggression against eastern Ukraine was defeated in the “cauldrons” of Ilovaisk (9/2014) and Debaltsevo (2/2015). In short, the failure of the Ukraine gamble is reason enough for the U turn.
    But wait … there’s more ! The European Union itself is in a slow-motion economic collapse, and has been since 2008. … this collapse has no quick solutions, and any real solution would require great changes in the world.
    So the empire needs a U-turn. It needs to buy time to re-think its strategies, time to get its puppets reelected in the US (9-2016), France (5-2017), and Germany (fall 2017), and it needs time to continue its headlong flight… There is no “fix” in sight for this crisis, anywhere on earth, but the empire is still able to buy time.”

  34. Hating on Trump

    It could be about Israel

    You know as well as everyone else that it is all about Israel.

    Everything is about Israel. 911 was about Israel. All these wars are about Israel. Even the immigration debate is all about Israel.

    ad libs about banning Muslims from the U.S.,

    how many Muslim countries allow unlimited numbers of non-Muslim immigrants to walk in and set up churches and synagogues and demand that Muslim countries change their laws and customs to accommodate non-Muslim immigrants, Mr. Giraldi? Eh?

    http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/650246/Germany-bans-pork-cafes-schools-offending-Muslim-migrants

    None?

    Well that’s perhaps because they’re not emasculated, spiritually castrated shells of a people who don’t feel like their own suicide is written in the stars.

    Why is it only white countries who’re expected to commit ethnic suicide?

    And we all know the answer to that. Because Zionism is a double edged sword. It means that the Jews will have an ethnically pure homeland, while simultaneously all white countries will be ethnically blended, including and especially from their ancient lands of Europe, and their heritage will be scourged and their people made second-class citizens, as we are in the US, with laws that treat white males as less than equal, and who are the only people who it’s not only legal to discriminate against, but everyone is encouraged to do so, no matter how poor or disadvantaged those white people are.

    And it is this paradigm that all these neocon Jews (and assorted buzzards feeding on the carcass of white America) are so alarmed about. Trump is a known friend to Israel and the Jews. He’s a New Yorker whose family has strong ties to Jews and he’s been a life long friend to Israel and even Bibi.

    It isn’t that he’s a threat to Israel or the Jews that has them apoplectic, it’s because he’s also a friend to middle and working class white (and black) America that has them pissing themselves and hysterically pulling their hair out.

    These vile scum and snakes are going to support Hillary not only because she’ll continue all the wars and slaughter and genocidal treatment of the Palestinians, but just as importantly she’s going to stick it to traditional Americans but good!

    Just look at France and Marine Le Pen. She’s also a friend to Israel and the Jews. But they hate her guts and want her destroyed because she is also a friend to the French, and tells them they don’t have to become a Muslim country in the next decade or two. And that has the Zio-globalist’s demanding her head on a plate.

    So yea, even as the impoverish denizens of Flint, MI are expected to drink toxic sludge, and they’re taxed on their hourly wages to send more billions to Israel (where the standard of living is far better than Flint), it isn’t so much the assured support for Israel that the anti-Trump forces are so riled about, but rather that the citizens of places like Flint are not going to be importing tens of thousands of more impoverished people from the third world as replacements that has the ziocons panties in a twist.

    The ‘neocons’ were never conservatives. They were always Jewish supremacist Trotskyists who cynically pretended to be conservatives in order to subvert the conservative movement, starting back when they turned out William Buckley to be their very special whore. And then they’ve simply used the assorted opportunistic whores like the Bush crime family and all the disgusting little Rubios and Cruzes who are willing to lick it off Sheldon Adelson’s stained casino bathroom floor.

    It’s notable that Jewish supremacist and neocon Zionists like Sheldon Adelson don’t just demand racial purity for Israel and the ethnic cleansing of the Arabs there, but he also demands open borders for the US.

    Zionism is a double edge sword, and if you’re going to be a politician in the West today, you have to be willing to swing that sword in both directions – for Israel and against your own country. Otherwise you’re just another Hitler.

  35. A superb column.
    The Trump hating definitely is about Israel.
    But it is not only about Israel.

    It is also about continuing the US drive to completely dominate the world, in the name of the West and as its latest leading country..
    But that 500 years of Euro-American colonial and neocolonial domination is now drawing to an end.

    Trump represents in an imperfect form the American “isolationist” sentiment that does not like the US Empire and wants to let it go in favor of a world where we interact economically but otherwise “mind our own business,” in the words of Ron Paul. It is either this course or endless wars, perhaps including WWIII. That is the course on which Killary and the other neocons are setting us.
    Time to choose, America.

  36. {Trump at its head.” Quite a few of the signatories are well known neocons, including Max Boot, Robert Zoellick, Michael Chertoff, Eric Edelman, Reuel Marc Gerecht, Daniel Pipes, Michael Rubin, Kori Schake, Randy Scheunemann, Gary Schmitt, Ray Takeyh and Philip Zelikow.}

    You have to add an impostors and a Zionist NOAM CHOMSKY, who is asking dumb people to vote for Hillary so they criminal tribe can put its criminal servant and a baby killer responsible for Muslim HOLOCAUST at the ‘white house’.

    The criminal tribe control all centers of power even ‘intellectualism’, and make an impostor as a ‘public intellectual’, so they can control even the non existent ‘left’, and phony ‘progressives’ such as Juan Cole, a supporter of the war criminal Obama, and now Hillary Rotten Clinton.

    Majority of the Jews are against Trump and for Hillary or another war criminal who run in the republican party. Vote the tribe DOWN by casting your vote for Trump. He should have his opportunity like the war criminal bush, Obama and Clinton. These people have killed millions of Muslims, why not give an opportunity to a person who does not have a bloody hand.
    Go against the Zionist tribe and send them to hell. Vote for Trump.

  37. [But to pretend that some special explanation is needed for why many people hate Trump is fake naivete]

    On the other hand many more like him, and passionately agree with his positions. If some Jews got their heads out of their fundaments, it would be rather liberating for them [with the added advantage of being less odious] and mark their identities primarily as Americans, and only parenthetically Jewish. As a matter of fact, I happen to think that most Jews in this country are quite content to assume that last position, but endure varying levels of misplaced moral suasion from their synagogues, AIPAC etc. I say this as a first-hand observer yearning for a strong POTUS who will strip the absurd, self-defeating privileges granted to Israel. I have stated in the past, that many, incorrectly, inflate the power of the neocons: they aren’t quite so; it is simply that the rank and file of these creatures are fighting to preserve their sinecures.

    I believe that in Trump we might very well have such a POTUS. However, he has to win the nomination cleanly with a majority of delegates behind him. Otherwise the establishment will split the party, surely clearing the ascension of that lying termagant Killary.

    On another note, to sit and watch Rubio, Cruz, Kasich and the others pee all over themselves while they grovel to the Zionists is enough to make any decent American reach for his gun.

    No, I have the opposite feeling. If Trump doesn’t win I will lose any interest in putting up any resistance to the globalists. I will simply resign myself to the one strategy left which can weaken the globalists. I will turn 180 degrees and be Bernie Sanders on steroids. I will wish and pray and advocate for orders of magnitude more spending on education, healthcare, military, etc., and do the same for bringing in as many from the third-world as possible. Complete open borders. I’m not satisfied with ballots in 30 languages, I want money spent on rare Guatemalan dialects so the racists and xenophobes can’t stifle the vote of marginalized peoples. We need to double the salary and pension of teachers and civil servants and hire many more bi-lingual teachers. I want more wars on more continents. I think we need to send troops into Libya, Somalia, Syria, and back into Iraq. I will use every opportunity to label Republicans (or what’s left of them) as racists. Etc. etc.

  39. He has said that he would honor the agreement but would do his best to “renegotiate” it, which is of course a non starter as there are a number of other signatories to it. He is the only GOP candidate who has not said that he would tear the agreement up.

    Early on in the campaign Trump was asked about the agreement by talk show host Michael Savage. Trump started off saying you can’t tear up the agreement, you just can’t. He said what you need to do with a bad agreement is you need to be extra vigilant in enforcing every last details and deviations from this can lead to effectively ending the agreement.

    Trump was really good early on in explaining why he would be so effective as President. This was before he was being attacked 24/7 and had to defend himself about the KKK, Hitler, being the grassy knoll shooter, et al.

  43. An excellent column by Philip Giraldi, which is par for the course for him. The only fellow commenter I saw who indicated the most important reason for supporting Donald Trump is Oscar Peterson. He mentioned Hillary Clinton, Trump’s probable opponent unless she becomes an indicted felon (please, God, I’ll never ask for anything again). I hope that Trump showers the country with the film clip of Clinton cackling with joyous laughter at the murder of Gaddafi, which she helped engineer: “we came, we saw, he died.” Gaddafi’s death resulted in turning Libya into a terrorist haven and opening up Europe’s southern flank to the invasion of hordes of Arabs and sub-Saharan blacks. Clinton has rightly been called the Queen of Chaos, and with her lust for killing and the corrupt perks of power she would be the most dangerous person ever to fill the office of president.

  45. Children trust and believe in authority. Even in Santa Claus.

    Adults suspect and question authority. Even in sacred taboos.

    Jewish elites want us to be like children. They call us ‘anti-semites’ if we question and counter Jewish power and authority.

    But we are only being mature than childish.

    We are being critical Judeo-Skeptics than credulous Judeo-Maniacs. (Or we are skepto-semites).

    It is adult to question authority. Isn’t it ironic that Jews take pride in the culture of critique but throw fits when others develop their own?

    Trust must be based on Truth, not on Naivete.

    If in truth, Jews were trustworthy, we should trust them. But if in fact, they are hostile, we should not trust.

    Trusting Neocons has been a huge bust for white Americans.

    Don’t trust the bust.

  54. Here’s another reason to hate Trump, Diamond Merchant: “Ex-ADL Chief: Trump’s ‘raise your hand’ gambit was deliberate, Nazi-style ‘fascist gesture’… I am a Holocaust survivor and this made me quiver.” The Times of Israel, March 7, 2016.

    You have no idea what it’s like lying awake night after night, trembling in fear of hearing once more the sound of marching SA stormtroopers on their torchlight parade through the cobblestone streets, their strong Aryan voices lifted boldly in unison in the Horst Wessel Lied, on their way to smash and burn my synagogue. When will the goyim leave us in peace? All we ever wanted, as history clearly shows, was to live among them as equals. I tell you, Diamond Merchant, being one of the Chosen People of G*d isn’t the joy ride the goyim seem to imagine!

    Now with this Donald Trump, already? Is G*d testing our faith?

  58. Virtually every last Jew in media, Left to Right opposes Trump. Anyone paying attention knows the terrible score. And we can see what Bill Kristol and Company, determined to stop him, is up to (no matter if the words are coming out of the mouth of the unmasked-as-utterly-despicable shabbos goy puppet Mormon Mitt, currently featured in robocalls for Rubio in one state and Kasich in another, Kristol himself probably having written those scripts, too); perhaps the richest being the bit of neuro-linguistic programming: “Trump isn’t a real Conservative”– as if Kristol and his vile pack of blood-soaked, usurping Trotskyite Jewish sociopaths and Christian Zionist globalist stooge enablers were indeed the true, America-first ones.

    It’s Jews and their wretched lackeys– who want to displace White Americans (and Europeans, too) with an infinite number of brown people; who want endless destabilizing wars for Israel fought and paid for by the United States; who want to continue to promote the ugliest and most poisonous sorts of social degeneracy and racial strife; who want Wall Street and the FED to continue to siphon what’s left of value out of the few remaining non-parasitic parts of the economy– versus Donald Trump; and while perhaps they intuitively have some sense, most Americans are unconscious of the reality of our predicament, how late the hour and what is at stake.

  59. Not convinced that Israel will become irrelevant. Mr. Girardi did not explain how that process would proceed. The below seems to be his main argument:

    “It is my opinion that the “I” word should be banned from American political discourse. Ironically, many American Jews are themselves uneasy about the place occupied by Israel in ongoing political debates, recognizing that it is both unhealthy in a democracy and reflective only of the extreme views of the hardline members of their own diaspora community.” “Ironically”….?

    I do not understand this statement’s meaning. I have largely not bothered anymore to follow the sideshow, or main show, of Jewish power in the US. So, maybe I have missed something, like a change, or especially a sea-change approaching, in this context of the freakshow of Jewish Power in the US.

    The only factor that I can see in this article is…”what they particularly fear is finding themselves without a major political party whose foreign policy they can manipulate because that would cut off their funding from defense contractors and pro-Israel zealots.”

    First, where is the evidence that defense contractors fund the Jewish Power? Small point yet I would like to know.
    Second, the Demagogic Party will still back Israel to the hilt, because its dummy constituents don’t care, and its smart do care…white elites who do what they are told by the Jewish Power, and of course by Jews. The exception being the college kids who want divestment from Israel…small potatoes.

    Third, the neocons may, with a Trump victory, find themselves somewhat out in the cold, but…
    Trump probably will be outmanouvered by the GOP and Bilious Billary we will see waving her arms for Israel.

    Lastly, the Amen Corner, per Pat Buchanan, is still very much with us and luvs Israel as the foundation for the Rapture, etc.

    As a Trump supporter, I welcome any small increment in the reduction of the Jewish Power. Arguably the neocon agenda has been largely accomplished…the destruction of the Arab middle east in terms of failed states. However, that will not last forever…some Strong Men will eventually arise and stabilize matters, especially since they still have something to sell. Thus Israel will once again pound Congress, etc. with its money and fright. Beware shabbas goyem.

    Israel will remain a large factor, if not the dominating factor in ME foreign policy, since we don’t realistically need middle east oil. People predict the dissolution of Israel. I don’t think so, at least within the ‘forceable’ future. Israel as America’s, or Protestants’ chosen people we will always have with us and the Jewish Power, ditto, except insofar as some curbing by Trump or future Trumps can put the neocon warmakers on a short leash.

    I would add that the stock of sympathy for Arabs, what with the migrant crisis, etc. has fallen even further, thus making Israel even less objectionable.

  61. There is no disputing that the Jew are anti Trump.

    There is no more important person in the world to the Jews, then the President of the United States of America. They must control him. Israel is nothing without the backing of the US president.

    Trump has said the he would be an honest broker between the Palestinians and the Israelis – this is anathema for the Zionist Jews. The last thing they want is peace – they want more land – they want all of Palestine.

    Trump has also said that he could work with Putin. If Trump wins the nomination expect an October Surprise involving Putin.

    The Jew will create a false flag operation in the ME that will force Putin’s hand. The Jew controlled MSM will dump all over Putin making Trump look bad.

    That’s right folks – the Jew will start a war in order to control who is President.

    so what?

    what else is there? Rubio? Cruz?

    these guys would eat it straight out of Bibi’s ***, and everyone knows it

    and it’s because everyone knows that Rubio and Cruz are sycophantic toadies to Wall Street and Zionism that the neocons are so pissed off that one of these cretins are not pretending to go up against Hillary. Because there isn’t a nickel’s bit of difference between Hillary and Cruz. Both are owed fee simple by the most vicious and determined enemies of, not just our county and all countries and all peoples, but of all notions of decency and peace and freedom and justice and all notions of the rule of law. The fiends who own Hillary and Cruz are straight out of Orwell’s 1984′s dystopian hell on earth. Power-crazed, demonic enemies of mankind. And yet we have this miraculous possibility 0f a president of the US who isn’t TOTALLY dedicated to the absolute destruction not only of N. America, but the entire Western world and the Muslim world and are pitting one against the other in a transparent agenda to destroy them both.

    That’s our choice, realist. And even tho Trump may be a Trojan Horse or a ploy to elect Clinton or any number of a thousand other terrible possibilities, what we all know is what the other guys are = more of the same (only far worse)

    So rail if you want to against Trump for his imperfections (they are legion), just remember by doing so what it is that your tacitly promoting.

  70. Elliot Cohen and company are not Israelis and they officially back the official Dem and Rep policy of a process toward a Palestinian state, which in practice is frozen and going nowhere, but the West Bank Arabs are not going anywhere either. The US Israel Lobby has no strategy to make them, so the Arabs in Israel can live with a lack of progress, because ultimately the current impasse means they will win.

    Indeed, Trump would appear to have a more sensible foreign policy in mind, consisting of avoiding unnecessary wars and “regime changes,” honoring the multilateral negotiated agreement with Iran, engaging diplomatically even with heads of state that we consider to be adversaries and encouraging Russia to fight ISIS. His three current opponents have recommended “carpet bombing” areas controlled by ISIS,

    Last time I looked over 60% of Israelis, ie the Jewish people actually living in Israel, say Trump is a friend . The threat to Israel’s future as a Jewish state is wholly internal, being a continuation of the current situation inside its borders, whereby Israel is moving to catastrophic options of Apartheid, giving an unassimilable and growing group of Arabs in the land won in 1967 full rights, or withdrawing from almost all the settlements (Martin Van Creveld’s prefered course of action).

    Why do Israelis say Trump is a friend? The reason may have something to do with the fact that Most Jews want to expel Palestinians . Van Crefeld says the reason such an unspoken option is being quietly toyed with is the prospect of ” the collapse of the Hashemite Kingdom and its occupation by Daesh or some similar organization. That would create an opportunity to repeat the events of 1948 and throw the Palestinians of the West Bank across the River Jordan..” Israelis know what has to be done, but the US pundits of the Israel Lobby will not argue for it, because they prefer life as important and respected US figures, bashing the largely irrelevant Iran and perpetuating an unwinnable situation for the Jewish state. Only Trump could enable Israel to avoid defeat.

    these guys would eat it straight out of Bibi’s ***, and everyone knows it

    I never said otherwise. So just because I’m anti-Trump means I MUST support another candidate?

    And yet we have this miraculous possibility 0f a president of the US who isn’t TOTALLY dedicated to the absolute destruction not only of N. America, but the entire Western world and the Muslim world and are pitting one against the other in a transparent agenda to destroy them both.

    We had that same possibility with Ron Paul. That was someone who was really for us as Americans. I love Trump’s policies, dont get me wrong. I’m just not gullible enough to believe anything will happen. How will his wall get built? It’s pretty implausible.

    http://www.nationalmemo.com/an-engineer-explains-why-trumps-wall-is-so-implausible/

    Trump amended his plan and that same author responded here.

    http://www.nationalmemo.com/trump-wises-up-abandons-his-improbably-large-wall/

    That’s just construction. Who will pay for this? Id love to see it, I just highly doubt it will happen. He will get your hopes up. I see so many people so excited for what he says. It’s the same things we hear every 4 years, with a few more things specifically for us right wingers.

    That’s our choice, realist. And even tho Trump may be a Trojan Horse or a ploy to elect Clinton or any number of a thousand other terrible possibilities, what we all know is what the other guys are = more of the same (only far worse).

    He definitely is a Trojan horse. Did you read the previous link I provided on his statements about Obama being bad for our relationship with Israel and all that? You’re right, they’re all the same. They’re for the elite (Jews), but Trump is a huge Trojan horse. This is all just political theatre. You know the media can and will control thoughts and emotions through predictive programming and other ways to get into the minds of the public. Ruston has papers on how media can push pro social behavior, the same holds true for the opposite as well.

    So rail if you want to against Trump for his imperfections (they are legion), just remember by doing so what it is that your tacitly promoting.

    Since you seem to be in my mind, care to tell me what I’m “tacitly promoting”?

  80. Bullshit – And to be brainwashed by liars like Daniel Pipes and Abe Foxman doesn’t give you the right to throw your Zionist filth over some Jew who is far more educated then Pipes and Foxman.

    Your Michael Flynn was four-star Lt. General and not five-star General, stupid.

    In 2014, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the outgoing chief of US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), told his “Friends of Israel” audience at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado that if Israel destroyed Hamas, the Zionist entity could be facing more deadly enemies in the occupied Palestine.

    “If Hamas were destroyed and gone, we would probably end up with something much worse. The region would end up with something worse,” the Reuters quoted Flynn saying.

    I love these “Israel-butt-kissing” American leaders when they used the word “we”, as if Israel could be America’s 51st state.

    It amazes me how few people see this. What do these people think, that by suppressing the political aspirations of all nativist/nationalist sentiment, that the millions who are fuelling Trump’s rise will just concede and forget about it??

    If someone had the explicit goal of creating a violent white nationalist movement in the US in the next 25 years, they could not come up with a better plan than what is taking place now.

    To quote Trump, “Whatever”. Yes, Flynn was a three-star, but in addressing him just using the title of General is proper. I think you don’t know ranks. There is no real five-star. Here’s a mnemonic: Be My Little General (B,M,L,G: Brigadier (*) Major (**), Lieutenant (***), General (****).

  85. Ofcourse they will win. Trump has shown no indication that he knows who the plotters are, what their strategy is, and how to counter it. He is a bumbling billionaire who stumbled onto the right message. And he will stumble out of it, as he is doing now. His instincts are right, but he does not have the strategic thinking, intelligence or the discipline to win against the most organized, smart, ruthless and relentless opposition the world has ever seen.

    Clinton has caused thousands of innocent civilians to be killed yet there’s none of this visceral hatred being hurled at her. Why is that? Cruz is a crackpot of the Christian Zionist heresy. He was booed off the stage by a gathering of ME Christians when he informed them their duty was to stand firmly with Israel. It showed a lot of gall on his part as well as obviously having a rigid, inflexible outlook devoid of common sense. Rubio is a lightweight who should do everyone a favor and just leave as of yesterday. So who’s left? What choices does a voter have? There’s no ideal fantasy candidate available. This campaign of slander and abuse is something I can’t remember ever seeing before. Are they really that panicky? I wish all these candidates would reiterate how they’ll pledge allegiance to the American public instead of to a foreign country.

  100. That must be why the establishment is backing him.

    If they said on the news that if you threw your dog out the window and he would fly, would you believe it? That’s basically what you’re saying to me.

    “I-it’s on the m-media!!” Meaningless.

    Just because it’s on the news, doesnt mean it’s true. I know you know this. But yet you believe what you hear. Why? Because it’s what you want to hear so you will block out any and all retorts and counter arguments to what is said because hey!! He’s saying what you want to hear! So I’ll be damned, it’s true!!!

    As I said in a previous comment, Trump is like Obama for “us” right wingers. It’s true.

    Do you believe everything you see and hear in the news? Since you peruse Unz Review, I assume you think for yourself and don’t let media do your thinking for you. So why use the “establishment isn’t backing him” line, when you know damn well that it’s chosen what we lowly people see in the news.

    It’s extremely possible, as I have noted in a previous comment, that as Rushton says, pro social behavior can be influenced by the media. The reverse holds true as well for the opposite.

    With predictive programming they are able to shape the minds and views of the viewers. This is where I see that you’re not very well informed. It’s very very possible to control us through media manipulation.

    “First, the mass media can attract and direct attention to problems, or in ways which can favor those people in power, and correlatively, divert attention from rival individuals or groups. Second, the mass media can confer status and confirm legitimacy. Third, in some circumstances, the media can be a channel for persuasion and mobilization. Fourth, the mass media can help to bring certain kinds of publics into being and maintain them. Fifth, the media is a vehicle for psychic rewards and gratifications. They can divert and amuse and they can flatter. In general, mass media are very cost effective as a means of communication in society; they are also fast, flexible and easy to control.”

    http://www2.sunysuffolk.edu/oconnog/media/download/the%20influence%20and%20effects%20o.pdf

    This says it all bro. It’s all out there. The media pacifies us. That’s what (((they))) want.

    I see how the arm of the media has you to believe they’re infallible.

    It’s all just political theatre. You’re watching a puppet show. Look at any and all men who have actually been about what they say. Ron Paul. What happened to him in 2012 was damn ridiculous. That’s a man who was truly for the people.

    This is why I don’t believe this. Everyone tells me Trump is the answer. He is not. Trump is just another puppet for the Jews.

    If it’s on the media, you know there is a reason for it being there.

    But they couldn’t fool you! Thank God “us” right wingers have you to guard our interests.

    If you’re still using Unz Review in a few months, I’ll remember this and bring it up if and when I see your name again.

    If Trump wins, we will see. I will admit I was wrong if he does what he says. But I highly doubt it. So if he wins and doesn’t do anything, I will say I was right and say I told you so that he was backed by other interests.

    The Right want all nations and cultures to be preserved and thrive in their own way.

    It is globalists like George Soros and Paul Singer who wage financial wars all over the world.
    And they also push for mass migration that undermines gentile nations(and never Israel).

    Globalists are for the dissolution of nations. They are dissolutionists, and they are the ones who are most responsible for problems around the world.

  105. Sucking up to the Zionists is just debasing oneself as politicians find out sooner or later, but Trump made a serious mistake by endorsing torture. That would turn off the Ron Paulists immediately. He should claw back their support and forget about Israel firsters, who settle for nothing less than ritual humiliation.

    Trump is helping us pull a Cucko-Demolition.

    Cucko Sucks, Cucko Sucks.

    It’s like in the movie THE LAST DAYS OF DISCO.

    Whit Stillman is a fine film-maker but an elitist. His ‘conservatism’ is about class.
    He has no explicit sense of racial identity or loyalty.

    It’s about the culture of privilege. Preppy cons. Preppies, in order to preserve their status and privilege, will sell anything down the river.

    I find Stillman’s films endearing, but people like Stillman turn up their noses at the common man, the kind who yelled Disco Sucks.

    The characters in THE LAST DAYS OF DISCO will dance the disco, hang in a club with negroes and homos, and etc IF it is hip, stylish, and fashionable. They want to be a part of whatever is trendy and exclusive.

    Conservatism Inc. turned into a club for those who are allowed in. In LAST DAYS OF DISCO, you have to stand in line, and some are allowed in and some are kept out.

    Trump comes along and Alt Right yells CUCKO SUCKS CUCKO SUCKS, and the privileged preppies of Cuck-Central is freaking out.

    Nobody who matters cares if Trump is an ostentatious parvenu.
    Nobody who matters cares if Trump degrades the political discourse of the already obscenely degraded American political scene – a scene which, I might add, gave us the empty suit’s empty suit, president Hussein.

  112. And then there is the recent attack of the Beltway Midgets,…

    Although Phil linked to it, I think it is worthwhile to read the Open Letter in its entirety, including the plan, proposed by Bryan McGrath, for taking down Trump (immediately following the letter):

    Open Letter on Trump from GOP National Security Leaders

    We the undersigned, members of the Republican national security community, represent a broad spectrum of opinion on America’s role in the world and what is necessary to keep us safe and prosperous. We have disagreed with one another on many issues, including the Iraq war and intervention in Syria. But we are united in our opposition to a Donald Trump presidency. Recognizing as we do, the conditions in American politics that have contributed to his popularity, we nonetheless are obligated to state our core objections clearly:

    His vision of American influence and power in the world is wildly inconsistent and unmoored in principle. He swings from isolationism to military adventurism within the space of one sentence.

    His advocacy for aggressively waging trade wars is a recipe for economic disaster in a globally connected world.

    His embrace of the expansive use of torture is inexcusable.

    His hateful, anti-Muslim rhetoric undercuts the seriousness of combating Islamic radicalism by alienating partners in the Islamic world making significant contributions to the effort. Furthermore, it endangers the safety and Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms of American Muslims.

    Controlling our border and preventing illegal immigration is a serious issue, but his insistence that Mexico will fund a wall on the southern border inflames unhelpful passions, and rests on an utter misreading of, and contempt for, our southern neighbor.

    Similarly, his insistence that close allies such as Japan must pay vast sums for protection is the sentiment of a racketeer, not the leader of the alliances that have served us so well since World War II.

    His admiration for foreign dictators such as Vladimir Putin is unacceptable for the leader of the world’s greatest democracy.

    He is fundamentally dishonest. Evidence of this includes his attempts to deny positions he has unquestionably taken in the past, including on the 2003 Iraq war and the 2011 Libyan conflict. We accept that views evolve over time, but this is simply misrepresentation.

    His equation of business acumen with foreign policy experience is false. Not all lethal conflicts can be resolved as a real estate deal might, and there is no recourse to bankruptcy court in international affairs.

    Mr. Trump’s own statements lead us to conclude that as president, he would use the authority of his office to act in ways that make America less safe, and which would diminish our standing in the world. Furthermore, his expansive view of how presidential power should be wielded against his detractors poses a distinct threat to civil liberty in the United States. Therefore, as committed and loyal Republicans, we are unable to support a Party ticket with Mr. Trump at its head. We commit ourselves to working energetically to prevent the election of someone so utterly unfitted to the office.

  113. Steven R. Diamond, the avowed Communist and hence heir of the great thinker Karl Marx, lists four reasons why Trump should be hated, but ironically every single one can be used to describe virtually every neoconservative. Which does raise the issue why those neoconservatives, who have been responsible for involving America in numerous wars that they and their children manage to avoid fighting in themselves (not to mention America’s “greatest ally” Israel), so hate Donald Trump. They make it appear that they are truly self-hating Jews, since they apparently detest the very qualities they possess in abundance. Of course, Mr. Diamond, the avowed Communist, does not cite the main reason these neoconservatives detest Donald Trump, the prospect that he would involve America in fewer hair brained wars around the world which do not involve America’s vital national interests.

  115. Hopefully the attacks intensify in such a way for Trump to sour on Israel. Trump is one in a billion. He isn’t the perfect punishment that the establishment deserves but he seems to be good enough. Hopefully he wins since Bernie the sheepdog who is more predictable isn’t going to win. It will be a very interesting 4-8 years with Trump in charge. If we must be ruled by oligarchs, we might as well be ruled by them directly and not through their craven puppets. Trump can’t be worse than the others and he creates his own narrative just like what someone said about our Empire. The establishment can judicially study each new reality that Trump creates on a whim and they get to keep their money. I think the Neocons will slither back to the Republican Party after the Trumpicane moves on through.

    I agree with the article except when it called Israel a “friendly foreign state.” Its anything but that.

  116. Annamarina, you’re 100% correct, and I couldn’t have said it better. You hit the proverbial nail squarely on the head when you described the conditions within the EU and the comments made by Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, regarding Ukraine’s current status. He was completely right in his comments on recognizing the failure of the Ukrainian gamble.
    The US Neocons aka Trotskyites – led by Robert Kagan and his despicable wife, Victoria Nudelman aka Nuland, as well as John McCain – orchestrated a coup d’etat that ousted the democratically elected President Viktor Yanukovych; mainly, because he signed a deal with Russia for a $5 billion loan to help Ukraine get up on its feet.
    As you also said, Ukraine is bankrupt and on a course toward humanitarian disaster. Its aggression against E. Ukraine was totally defeated in the “cauldrons” of Ilovaisk (9/2014) and Debaltsevo (2/2015). In short, the failure of the Ukraine gamble is reason enough for the U-turn.
    You’re also right in stating that the EU itself is in a slow-motion economic collapse and has been since 2008 .. this collapse has no quick solutions, and any real solution would require great changes in the world.
    The US needs a U-turn, and Donald Trump is more likely than any other candidate to achieve this. He’s promised to improve relations with Russia, China and other countries by sitting down with their leaders and negotiating with them. He’s promised to end the aggressive wars that had been raging for over a decade and revamping the military, as well as rebuilding America’s crumbling infrastructure. None of the other candidates – either Republican or Democrat – have made these promises; they’re all warmongers.

  117. From an Investment Theory perspective, it would seem that although Trump is from the same elite socio-economic class as the other candidates and investors of the party, he doesn’t go out of his way to serve the specific blocs of donors/investors that have traditionally supported the Republican or Democratic parties. In other words, if elected, he will serve the elite generally, like both parties do to varying degrees, but he will give preference to sectors of the elite of his choosing, which puts him somewhat out of the control of conservative party investors. This accounts for much of the conservative criticism he is receiving -though his pathological narcissism and outrageous comments are also a factor, of course.
    Much of his success can be explained by the large amount of investment throughout the years in building up his name and fame — assets that can readily be transferred to a PR-oriented political arena, as we saw with Schwarzenegger.

    Sadly, he also represents a sort of overblown reflection of many of the values that our society embraces: Money, power, nationalism, celebrity, charisma, big ego, a “great” family and wife etc. These are values and meaning structures that we must uphold — even if only as passive admirers and supporters — to convince ourselves that the society we are part of creates real value and meaning, which is the basis for our own self-esteem – our own (more limited) narcissism.

    And self-esteem is also Trump’s reason for running. As he nears death, his children, money, fame, and Trump brand promotions become increasingly insufficient sources of symbolic immortality. He must do something of greater significance and legacy, something to leave a bigger mark in the world and preserve the self into the future.

  119. When you say zionists are the problem
    Its like saying liberals are the problem.

    In europe the power elites are called neoliberals and in usa neoconservatives

    Neoliberals have hijacked liberalism to implement globalist cultural marxism.

    Zionism is a biblically rooted desire of jews to return to biblical israel.

    Neo zionism is bluntly an anglo american imperial hegemony with
    Jewish boots on the ground to spearhead a neo crusade vs. Islam
    backed by u.s and coalition troops in a neo roman empire geopolitical east west never ending orwelian peacewar.

    It could also be called zioglobalism.

    You have to be a real hater to blame the jewish people for historical events going back to the time of the Roman conquest of Judea and the modern dispersion.

    To the point, neo zionism is a frankenstein monster and dr frankenstein is the anglo american empire. All jews are biblical zionists
    but only elite jews and their stooges
    are in bed with the globalist agenda which is not good for the jewish people any more than neo islamic jihad is good for the muslim people. Divide and govern geopolitics are never good for the people living in the disputed lands.

    Neo zionism or Rothschild zionism was as willing to work with nazi germany as the anglo american empire.

    Neo jihadism was similarly involved with the anglo american empire and the getman reich in wwll.

    Neo zionism and neo islamism are two elements of neoliberal globalism.

    Mr. Trump is an educated man. He knows history and has followed the money. He is not a hater. He can tell a jew from a neozionist, an arab from a neoislamist a mexican from a narcogangster and a black from a thug.

    He is winston churchill emerging from
    the era of neville chamberlain. The real enemy is not an ethnicity so much as an elite determined to take the people to hell in the name of political corectness.

    War is peace. Slavery is freedom. ignorance is strength. The flag of Oceania is a white-black handshake
    representing tyranny in the name of the brotherhood of man and neofeminism.

    It is 25 years since the fall of the ussr.
    The fear porn about the invincibility of a so called new world order is rotten.
    The ussr fell and so will soviet america.

  120. You dont have to be jewish to be a neozionist. More evangelical christians than jews are for the state of israel right or wrong. Many nazis infiltrated us intelligence after 1945. Many neozionists and neoislamists occupy high positions in the state department.
    This is called blowblack aka karma.

    Again the issue is not who is worse rather a complete restructuring of this government from internationalism to nationalism aka america first.

  122. Trump represents the oligarchy but not the same oligarchs the neoconservatives represent. There seems to have been a schism among the deep state actors. It’s apparent in the incoherence of Americas Syria policy, and in the Ukraine. The Anglo oligarchs are afraid the faction represented by the neocons, those we are afraid o talk about, are going to start a nuclear war. Hillary is their candidate. Neither faction is good for democracy but one might get us all killed because they are crazy.

  123. Trump is for what works. If hitler says 2+2=4 it is still 4. You may object to israeli policy but their security is the best. They dont molest passengers on el al but they do profile and stop some passengers from boarding. They track down bombers without locking down cities. They built a wall that stops 99% of suicide bombers. Unofficially the use torture to get enemies to talk and openly demolish the homes of families which deters many martyrs who still care about their families. They fight fire with fire. They are machiavellian and practice what chancellor otto von bismark called realpolitik. So will Trump. He is not dogmatic but adaptive.

  124. If the elites agree that its time for the penduum to swiing back from the extreme of cultural marxism why not?

    The challenge is not to return to passivity if we lose in november. If Trump is blocked by vote rigging he becomes more powerful than ever as a leader of a movement who cannot be neutralized with impunity.

  126. Benjamin Netanyahu at the 2016 World Economic Forum in Davos, Suisse:
    “The key to tackling extremism is despair. Rob them of the hope that their wild fantasies will win out the day”.

    Israel and the Palestinians have crossed the Rubicon. The Palestinian population is growing too fast. Where will they go when they get desperately hungry? How much longer can the Abbas government resist Hamas? The 2014 assault on Gaza was the final straw. Netanyahu has most assuredly backed up his above quote with action.

    John Quincy Adams’s Warning Against the Search for “Monsters to Destroy,” 1821:

    And now, friends and countrymen, if the wise and learned philosophers of the elder world, the first observers of nutation and aberration, the discoverers of maddening ether and invisible planets, the inventors of Congreve rockets and Shrapnel shells, should find their hearts disposed to enquire what has America done for the benefit of mankind? Let our answer be this: America, with the same voice which spoke herself into existence as a nation, proclaimed to mankind the inextinguishable rights of human nature, and the only lawful foundations of government. America, in the assembly of nations, since her admission among them, has invariably, though often fruitlessly, held forth to them the hand of honest friendship, of equal freedom, of generous reciprocity. She has uniformly spoken among them, though often to heedless and often to disdainful ears, the language of equal liberty, of equal justice, and of equal rights. She has, in the lapse of nearly half a century, without a single exception, respected the independence of other nations while asserting and maintaining her own. She has abstained from interference in the concerns of others, even when conflict has been for principles to which she clings, as to the last vital drop that visits the heart. She has seen that probably for centuries to come, all the contests of that Aceldama the European world, will be contests of inveterate power, and emerging right. Wherever the standard of freedom and Independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions and her prayers be. But she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She will commend the general cause by the countenance of her voice, and the benignant sympathy of her example. She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom. The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force…. She might become the dictatress of the world. She would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit….

    [America's] glory is not dominion, but liberty. Her march is the march of the mind. She has a spear and a shield: but the motto upon her shield is, Freedom, Independence, Peace. This has been her Declaration: this has been, as far as her necessary intercourse with the rest of mankind would permit, her practice.

    It appears too that America has crossed it’s own Rubicon.

  129. Unfortunately my previous post got chopped right before 117 signatures. So, for completeness, here’s the rest of it:

    [MORE]

    Number of Signatories: 117

    The statement above was coordinated by Dr. Eliot A. Cohen, former Counselor of the Department of State (2007–8), and Bryan McGrath, Managing Director of The FerryBridge Group, a defense consultancy. They encourage other members of the Republican foreign policy and national security communities wishing to sign the declaration to contact them.

    Want to get involved? Read Bryan McGrath’s proposed plan for taking down Trump.

    Next Steps: How to Push Back Against Trump

    The question always posed to the dog chasing cars is “What will you do with it when you catch it?” And although the letter published here on War on the Rocksyesterday (signed by, as I write, 106 Republicans) should not be considered an end state, it is an important statement of purpose upon which further action is required.

    Many signers have indicated their willingness to continue to press the case against a Donald Trump nomination, and so I offer a few ideas for how this momentum can be sustained. Last night’s debate added additional urgency to the effort. Not only did Trump continue to assert his preference for blatant violations of international law, he arrogantly asserted that the military would follow these unlawful orders, with viewers left to imagine the consequences to those who might not follow the Will of the Great Man.

    Here are a few ideas for signers of the letter and anyone else who shares our sentiments:

    Op-eds — I urge signers to familiarize themselves with the schedule of remaining GOP primaries and try to place op-eds in newspapers read by those voters. If you lead with “Why I signed this letter and why you, citizen of this state, need to consider it before you go to the polls,” you can’t go wrong.
    Online Outlets — Signers could replicate Dan Drezner’s laudable effort at the Washington Post and look to place pieces at National Review, The Weekly Standard, The American Interest, The National Interest, Foreign Policy, Defense One, The American Conservative, and – of course – War on the Rocks.
    Television and Radio — If you are one of the folks who are able to call upon bookers and producers at more traditional television and radio outlets, make the call and get yourself scheduled. We all know how hard booking is, so make their jobs easier and volunteer.
    Email and Social Media — Signers should consider writing a personal email to as many people as they know in their own social networks, include a link to the letter, and explain why this is important to you. If you are on other social media like Facebook, proudly post a link to the letter and explain your personal objections. Be forewarned, you will get some spirited pushback from Trump supporters. Make the case for why you are right and they are wrong.

    There is a long way to Cleveland in July, and many very positive outcomes remain. Now is not the time to rest.

    Exclusive: Koch brothers will not use funds to try to block Trump nomination

    somebody tell Bernie Sanders.

    Bernie reveals what he is concealing when he slashes away at the Koch brothers, as he has done from the beginning of his upstart campaign. The Kochs have been the only entity Sanders has named in his “campaign finance is the most corrupting influence” schtick.

    But to the best of my knowledge, the Koch brothers have never spoken to joint sessions of Congress, or gotten nearly 100% support for resolutions in support of Koch preferences, or passed around napkins and gotten the signatures of enough bought-and-paid-for legislators and then used all of that access and influence to funnel US dollars to a foreign state who uses those taxpayers dollars to kill other people’s children.
    The Jewish-Israel lobby and only the Jewish-Israel lobby has done all these things.

    At least the Koch brothers employ Americans, and made their investing in the USA and employing American workers.

    They are global realists as Trump is: the US cannot be economically isolationist; as major players in the business of keeping the American economy running, both Trump and the Kochs rub elbows with financiers, employers and government leaders throughout the world.

    I’d love to see the Koch brothers give their support to Trump.

    to Giles: had it not been for Israel and the freakish ” biblically rooted desire of jews to return to biblical israel,”

    nobody would need to walk onto airplanes barefoot, or pry into people’s backgrounds and devices before they indulge in freedom of movement.

    also Giles:
    You have to be a real hater to blame the jewish people for historical events going back to the time of the Roman conquest of Judea and the modern dispersion.

    The early creators and leaders of Jewish zionism — H. Sacher and Theodor Herzl himself –make that claim:

    Sacher:

    THE Zionist movement dates from A.D. 70, the year of the destruction of the Temple and the Jewish State. The Zionist Organization dates from 1897, the year of the first Zionist Congress. The Zionist movement is a longing and striving to restore to the Jewish people normal national life. The Zionist Organization is a particular instrumentality for achieving that end. The Zionist movement will continue until the Jewish people are once more living a normal national life http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1919/07/a-jewish-palestine/303393/

    Herzl:

    The Maccabeans will rise again.
    Let me repeat once more my opening words: The Jews who wish for a State will have it.
    We shall live at last as free men on our own soil, and die peacefully in our own homes. http://www.gutenberg.org/files/25282/25282-h/25282-h.htm

    (The Maccabees led the revolt against Rome and “reasserted the Jewish religion, partly by forced conversion, expanded the boundaries of Judea by conquest and reduced the influence of Hellenism and Hellenistic Judaism.“)

  131. “As I said in a previous comment, Trump is like Obama for “us” right wingers. It’s true.”

    All of your blathering boils down to “What I say must be true because I want it to be true.”

    Why is it that when someone links to their own website, there’s a 98% chance they’re a nut job? No one will go to their website, so they come here.

    get another life Schiller/ Nietzsche.

    Maybe Herschel Grynszpan should not have killed Ernst vom Rath, and maybe Bolsheviks led by Jews Zinoviev and Khamanev should not have tried to subvert Germany, causing so many riots like the one that killed Horst Wessel.

    what comes around goes around.

    I brought up good points, but I see you can’t respond to them.

  134. The important thing to remember about the Middle East is that America had no enemies in that part of the world until England and the US granted the land of Palestine to non-Semitic Jewish immigrants from Germany, Poland, and other eastern European countries. Who promptly set about terrorizing and expelling native inhabitants of the land for the purpose of destroying their homes, razing their orchards, and confiscating land on which to erect American subsidized communes, factories and corporate farms. A brutal, inhumane process that continues to this day.

  135. Even if Trump fails to get nomination,or gets elected or is prevented after being elected to do from doing what he meant to do it is late to put the genie back in the bottle.
    A new awareness has permeated the plebeian thanks to Trump- support for Israel,unnecessary pre emotive wars,and outsourcing of jobs have killed American dreams- and this awareness will outlast Trump

    Neocons will lose the money laundering machine of Israel, neocons will have to work instead of lecturing on Fox and pontificating at AEI and Brookings or at FDD.
    Liberman type of old piece of cadaver will never try again to wage wars using American weakness or fear .
    When neocons make remarks that Democrats are voting for Trump to upstage GOP,they make the same calculated thought – out mistake that they have done on so many other issues including the propagation of the views on Israel- – out of the world experience that Israel is our ally , and fairness is not part of justice,honesty,legality or American values when it relates to Israel –Palestine conflict. Democrats are voting because hey like what Trump is saying.

    Jim Webb ( the democratic candidate ) is supporting Trump

  137. “Uncle Sam has no dog in Israel fight”. Israel is the dog planted in the ME by the west, UK, to protect the economic interests of the west and as an insurance policy to the flow of resources from the ME to the west economy! Like you implying the Arabs are cowards and had never stood up to Israel’s atrocities in their lands. Mr Giraldi hits the nail on the head!

  138. Although Trump has praised the Great Wall Of China as an engineering feat worth repeating here in America, he has NOT, to my knowledge made the obligatory trek to the Wailing Wall to don the Yarmulke and knell at the feet of emperor Netanyahu, all demonstrations of obeisance expected of anyone seeking political office higher than that of local dog catcher. But as the defeats of John McCain, Mitt Romney & Rand Paul attest, even these acts of obediance to Israel’s will do not always assure political victory. With Bill Clinton, George W. and Obama being exceptions.

  139. So are Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz. Let’s get one thing straight. Neocon is a cover-word for Marxist war mongers on a quest for world domination under Zionist rules and regulations. The term bears the same relationship with conservatism as the Patriot Act does with patriotism, which is absolutely none. Zero. Zilch.

  141. Thank you! Critics should have by now noticed that they are “horrified” over things he says while supporting thebprevious presidents sho actually have DONE all this. They pretend not to see the tragedy of migrants flooding the Europe — having first been invited by Merkel — and then blocked by walls of razor wire fences on their perilous journey. When are we going to see the horrors of the folly that political classes in the West have brought upon their own peple playing God with the masses of desparate running away from the very hell we unleashed across the Middle East and North Africa. Critics piously accuse Trump for what they have for decades condoned. Trump is pointing out the obvious — we are not having allies in the world. We created affluenza brats that think they can do all sorts of nasty things because US will come to the rescue and pay their bills. Pulling hundreds of thousands of our military home and stopping the payments to the thousands of “NGO” meddlers would make our affluenza “allies” being forced to face up to their responsibility, and will by bringing these home immediatelly boost our mainstreem economy. As for all those allues that cry wolf all the time, while poking the wolf, and pulling its tail — they may have pay for the consequences of their behaviour. Instead we behave like parents of affluenza kids enjoy watching them poke the bear –as is the case of our little Baltic allies. We would be better of letting the bear give them a bloody nose — so they will learn the value of our frienship — not just using us for getting money and arms.

  142. I object to Israeli theft of Palestine and of serving as a parasitical albatross on the US taxpayer, the “policy” is to increase the theft in acreage and have the US defend it politically and militarily.
    Hopefully Trump sees US and Israel versus the balance of the Mideast is a losing hand medium term. That’s realpolitik.

  143. “They built a wall that stops 99% of suicide bombers.”

    Just one of your many lies. The wall did not stop suicide bombers, the Palestinian organizations decided that suicide bombing was counter productive and made the decision to stop. Look at the knife attacks, if Hamas or other Palestinian organizations wanted to they could easily switch from knives to explosive vests, inside and outside of Israel.

    The irony is that Palestinians stopped suicide bombing and are trying nonviolent methods but now the political puppets in the U.S. and Canada are trying to suppress citizen’s freedoms and make BDS or criticism of Israel a crime.

  146. If I’m not mistaken every single one of these low-life characters are Zionist Jews, with virtually every one of them being intimately involved in planning and instigating the on-going wars in the Middle East, beginning with the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq in 2003, and the current war in Syria and turmoil in Ukraine. With this important bit of information never being mentioned in the Jewish controlled news media. Which by the way, includes the Mother Jones article which was the source of the above mentioned information.
