The President Formerly Known as Hitler

So the President formerly known as Hitler has apparently pulled his head out of his ass and gotten with the global capitalist program. The ruling classes couldn’t be more relieved, as it was beginning to look like they were going to have to carry on with their totally ridiculous “Manchurian President” propaganda indefinitely, or deal with Trump in some harsher way, which, given the paranoid mood in the country and the heavily-armed nature of a lot of his supporters, was going to get a little tricky.

Luckily, however, H. R. McMaster, James Mattis, and the rest of the permanent members of the global capitalist war machine (better known as the United States military), as well as his bleeding heart daughter, Ivanka, were able to talk some sense into Trump, and convince him to employ about sixty cruise missiles to pointlessly obliterate a Syrian airstrip, and then drop a $314 million Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb on a few dozen “terrorists” in some caves in Afghanistan. The fact that these air strikes had virtually zero military value was beside the point. The global capitalist ruling classes needed Trump to demonstrate that he is ready and willing to continue the wholesale restructuring of the Middle East that they’ve been carrying out since the end of the Cold War, and bomb whatever they tell him to bomb, and, basically, do what the fuck he’s told when it comes to geopolitical matters. Trump, who was probably tired of losing, and being referred to as Bannon’s puppet, and being accused of treason, and so on, and who never really gave two shits about the suckers he conned into voting for him anyway, had one of those Road to Damascus experiences and gave the Pentagon boys carte blanche.

The display of overwhelming force that followed, at 08:40 EST, April 6, 2017, signaled the start of the Trumpian reign. CNN talking head Fareed Zakaria put it this way the following evening, “I think Donald Trump became president of the United States last night … for the first time really as president, he talked about international norms, international rules, about America’s role in enforcing justice in the world.”

This was approximately 24 hours after CNN and the other totally objective members of the mainstream media had had a chance to calm down a little, and to clean up after the orgy of obsequious cheerleading they had indulged in the previous evening. For most of the spastic talking heads who are paid to repeat whatever some producer whispers into their earpieces around the clock while making weird faces, the footage of those turgid Tomahawk missiles rising angrily out of their silos on their way to violently penetrate the enemy and explode in shuddering spasms of global corporatist power was literally orgasmic. Pent-up editorialists instantly pumped out geysers of overwhelming approval. MSNBC’s Brian Williams lost it and started raving on camera about “the beauty of our fearsome armaments,” and quoting Leonard Cohen, and so on. The Washington Post immediately brought in Robert Kagan to froth at the mouth about “rebalancing Syria in America’s favor.” And it wasn’t just the US press and the corporate-owned US political establishment. The rest of the global capitalist empire (Germany, France, the United Kingdom, the European Council, Spain, Italy, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, et al.) were quick to cheer Trump’s transformation into a grown-up, moderate, more or less rational, or at least obedient, globalist puppet.

Now, I owe Trump an apology at this point, because his sudden conversion to the Globalist faith proves that he is not the total ass hat I’ve accused him of being for twenty five years, or at least that he is not suicidal. Prior to his soul-searching talk with Ivanka, and his chat with the generals, and to viewing the photos of those “beautiful babies” gassed by Assad in a last-ditch attempt to force the USA to invade his country and hang him to death, he (i.e., Trump, not Assad) was on the verge of a massive heart attack, or a stroke, or other medical event, or just accidentally getting shot in the head by some mentally unstable, three-named gunman. Or maybe The New York Times‘ guest loony, the increasingly Strangelovian Louise Mensch, was going to uncover a grainy VHS tape of Trump and Putin in their BDSM-wear signing a pact to destroy America in the urine of a Muscovite prostitute … or whatever.

ORDER IT NOW

The point is, Trump was playing with fire, having misunderstood his job description. For a while there it seemed he actually believed he was going to defy the will of all those “global elites” he’d been railing against (and, no, I’m not referring to “the Jews,” I’m referring to the global capitalist establishment and the armies they employ to keep them in power). This, of course, was never going to happen. The global capitalist ruling classes can put up with a lot from a US president (who is the most powerful man in the world, after all), but there are a few lines one does not cross, and some fundamental responsibilities they need to know are going to get handled. Playing neo-nationalist grab-ass (or selling the world some Hope and Change crap) is all fine and good when you are out on the hustings, but as Obama noted on his way out of town, “reality has a way of asserting itself.” Or, as corporatist puppet Chuck Schumer put it,”you take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you.” I don’t mean to be overly dramatic, but we’re talking about the US military, CIA, NSA, and the rest of the military industrial complex. These are people who have no problem murdering entire families by day and going home and playing with their kids at night. Did anyone really think they were going to allow some word-salad-babbling billionaire to screw around with their long-term objectives because he happened to win a presidential election?

In any event, the danger has passed. Trump, having assumed the mantle of Commander in Chief of Global Capitalism’s worldwide arbitrary killing machine (and with Cohn and the usual Goldman Sachs guys making sure he doesn’t go nuts and start screwing around with their ongoing efforts to transform the planet into one big happy, neo-feudalist theme park prison), can relax and focus on improving his golf swing. Whatever mess he makes of the country (i.e., the United States of America, the nominally sovereign nation state that most Americans believe they live in) will be tolerated by the global capitalist establishment, as they couldn’t care less about actual Americans, or Brits, or Greeks, or Syrians, or whoever. We’re all just a bunch of canon fodder, and servants, and deplorables, and losers, to them.

If it’s any consolation, at least we’ll be able to get back to “normality,” finally. Yes, it will likely take a few weeks for liberals to fully recover from the shock of the cancellation of Holocaust Redux and the Imminent Invasion of the Putin-Nazis, but my prediction is, by sometime this Summer, we’ll have returned to more or less business as usual. That is, of course, unless Putin the Evil hacks the upcoming French elections … in which case, you know, End of Democracy, and Holocaust II, et cetera, again. Stay tuned to the corporate media for moment-by-moment updates on that.

  3. Chuck Schumer came up with a good theory over the bullet for the Warren commission.

    In the political satire film Death Race 2000 (1975), America’s greatest reality television celebrity “Frankenstein”, played by David Carradine is winner of a game where innocent people are killed, becomes US president and abolishes the game. Then he runs over and kills a carping TY reporter.

    See, once you are pres, you have the power to do anything at all. Sack anyone who complains , put your men in key positions, and (perhaps worst of all) audit the income tax returns of anyone outside the government who dares raise their head.

    Did anyone really think they were going to allow some word-salad-babbling billionaire to screw around with their long-term objectives because he happened to win presidential election?

    In a 140-character world, brevity is digital wit. Hence the attractiveness of the enthymeme, a type of syllogism in which the speaker intentionally withholds the premises or conclusion of an argument. The enthymeme works because of succinctness, simplicity, and the active participation of the audience, who has to supply the missing information. Aristotle noted its powerful popular appeal in democratic Athens.

  4. Trump didn’t fail, he didn’t even try. He boldly stepped into the ring and forfeited. Crazy former enemies now praise him. A senator, national traitor, and international sociopath recently gushed like an elderly schoolgirl that we now have madmen in power while spouting off a list of lies. Trump once mocked this man for getting less than 1% of Republicans to support him for President. This nut wants to declare war on half the planet and expects Trump to start bombing more nations soon.

    And $170,000 per unit is a lot cheaper than some of the numbers being bandied about, ranging anywhere from $16 million to a whopping $314 million.”

    This article is leftish garbage, compete with vulgarity commensurate with its source. Trump will have fulfilled his historic mission if he just stops immigration and brings the blacks , etc. to heel.

  6. todays Jewyorktimes….”WASHINGTON — When President Trump swept into the White House in January, some of his advisers gleefully predicted that his victory would set off a populist wave across Europe, scattering mainstream parties on the left and right and wedding Europeans to the same nationalist ideology that Mr. Trump espoused in the United States.

    With far-right parties then on the rise across the Continent, it did not seem that far-fetched a proposition.

    Now, with the French presidential election starting this weekend, Mr. Trump faces the stiffest test yet of whether his brand of nationalism and nativism appeals to voters elsewhere in the Western world….”
    ————
    The article continues with poo-poohing the nationalist movement in Europe but covering its butt by saying that the National Front may win.

    This is what is important about Trump. As I have said earlier, if he tilts toward the Jewish State and more war…that is the price we have to pay for the Start of The Counter-Revolution. Also, as I have stated, killing more Arabs for the Jews, sends more terrorists and Migrants North to Europe. That helps the White Revolt. That may be too bad but…

    The coverage that the muzzie/arab/african genital cutting of little girls is getting finally….also helps the White Revolt. The myth of racial equality is starting to erode.

    I wonder what the Counter Punchies have to say about that? Cultural Relativism and Self-Determination…of course, for the darkies. Whites do not get to Self-Determine. We are to be overrun by darkies and have our Culture destroyed. Whites must die….that is the left-jewish-liberal position

    Counter that, punchdrunk lefties.

I mean that’s not much of a loss as it’s already a cancer stricken hulk of a nasty, twisted, corrupt, decaying head.

  8. C. J., thanks. During the campaign I published a short essay locally that was mildly favorable to candidate Trump. I suggested Trump’s rascally, unscripted rhetoric, his eminent outsiderness, and his personal wealth would buy him enough political space to make good changes in the Wall Street/K Street condominium that governs us. Two avid Trump supporters I know disliked my piece, I suppose for my inadequate enthusiasm. (I preferred Trump to Hillary, and voted Libertarian out of habit.)

    We got surgeon Tom Price, a water carrier for the American Medical Association, as Health and Human Services Secretary. There’s a handful of the usual investment banker types in the administration, plus, of course, this most recent gratuitous and illegal bombing of Syria. Pretty much all suggest to me Trump’s squandered whatever advantages he may have had as a candidate, and he’ll settle in to being broker-in-chief of our council of fasces.

    One massive disadvantage to fascism is political tone-deafness. Our political leaders are too busy buying constituencies with symbolic victories, subsidies, selective military interventions, and tax preferences that they don’t notice underlying wobbliness. By wobbliness, I mean debt of all sorts that’s sold to foreign entities, White Death that’s much talked about here, the effective subversion of schools, churches, and the family, etc. We end up with crisis-style decision-making as long ignored and long festering issues can no longer be ignored.

  9. Huuge building owned by Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner – who is said to be running USA White House now for the Deep State, Kosher Nostra etc – had FIVE (!) ‘mysterious’ fires that WERE under NY Fire Dept arson investigation (squashed?) … young Kushner perhaps in the mould of his father Charles (imprisoned for mafia-type crimes, ironically prosecuted by Trump supporter Chris Christie)

    Young Chabad-Mossad-Israeli-army-tied Jared Kushner overseeing Trump’s White House, has profited ‘bigly’ by driving out elderly & low-income tenants who pay ‘rent-controlled’ low monthly rental amounts … Suspicious fires in buildings owned by Jewish landlords are sometimes ‘anti-Semitically’ called ‘Jewish lightning’

    http://gothamist.com/2016/07/18/kushner_184_kent_fires.php

    Mysterious Fires Plague Williamsburg [Brooklyn NY] Condo Building Owned By Trump’s Son-In-Law

    Residents of a high-priced apartment building are gripped with paranoia following a series of mysterious fires … The block-long rental building, 184 Kent Avenue, is a century-old warehouse that Jared Kushner, a real estate developer & Donald Trump’s son-in-law, bought for $275 million & started converting to condos last April

    One resident who moved into the building 2 years ago &, like most tenants we spoke to, asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution, said that after Kushner & friend bought the building, many tenants had their rent increased by $400 or $500

    The building has six open Buildings Department violations … Then there are the fires

    The first flared just before noon on May 27th … Then, 3 weeks later to the day, basically the same thing happened … The third fire was reported on June 20th … The fourth occurred on June 29th … A fifth small fireoccurred midday the following day, June 30th

    Following the last fire, the rumour mill kicked into hyper-drive, in part because of still-limited communication from management, & the feeling among some remaining tenants that the scary conflagrations could be a tactic by Kushner & company to drive them to abandon their protected leases

    Ongoing FDNY investigation makes it “inappropriate to comment further on the cause of the recent fires.”

    Fires aside, Kushner, son of real estate magnate Charles Kushner, has aggressively expanded Kushner Companies’ footprint in New York City over several years, & has drawn accusations of tenant harassment. Kushner bought dozens of buildings in Manhattan & Brooklyn … Forty of them came mostly emptied of rent-stabilised tenants … tenants left or suffered for reasons including dust from construction, a manager who changed a front-door lock during Hurricane Sandy, chronic leaks, & ceiling collapses … One building after Kushner took over, tenants reporting leaks, ceiling collapses, an electrical fire, & nearly five months without gas under Kushner management.

    The program costs $314 million. How often has this bomb been used? Rhetorical question. If a hitman is paid $100k for an operation to assassinate one (or several persons), is the overall cost of that hit the cost of the bullet? Again, rhetorical question.

    Even though I'm still not much of a capitalist, this is precisely why I abandoned the left. I just couldn't go through life policing my own thoughts in such a fashion. However hard I tried, I could just never quite manage to 'unsee' all those 'coincidences', such as how banking, foreign policy and the MSM are now almost completely Jew-dominated. I could never unsee how one tiny little country in the middle east--with a higher per capita income than our own!--was able to lay claim to the majority of our foreign aid (plus countless wars and Security Council vetoes) year after year after year. I just couldn't unsee how we're building monuments to the Holocaust in our own capital, even though our country had absolutely to do with it! In fact, we were at war with the very country that was. But we're supposed to feel guilty over something we never did.

    My own red-pill moment came about 15 years ago, when I noticed that all the neocons behind Bush were about 90% Jewish. That was far too high a percentage to be random. And once I started reading up on them, I was astonished at how closely they resembled the early Russian bolsheviks in their methods and worldview. I finally came to the conclusion that the Jew-mafia doesn't really care whether a system is capitalist or communist, so long as their little Jew-mafia controls it.

    Do I hate all Jews? No, of course. For example, I have immense respect for Mr. Unz because of his work through the years, culminating in the founding of this very--and very excellent--website. It may well be that the truly dangerous Jews are actually small in number; unfortunately though, it seems that they all too well how to push the buttons of most of the other Jews so as enforce the tribal mentality. Witness how they behaved during the Trump campaign (and yes, I am now over him, too): rage, desperation, hysteria! You would've thought Trump was a brownshirt or a cossack on horseback! Instead, he turned out to be just another bankster-controlled zionist.

    I have come to the conclusion that this Jew-mafia--along with their new-world-order goy allies, such as the Rockefellers--are the greatest menace our world now knows.

    Fires aside, Kushner, son of real estate magnate Charles Kushner, has aggressively expanded Kushner Companies' footprint in New York City over several years, & has drawn accusations of tenant harassment. Kushner bought dozens of buildings in Manhattan & Brooklyn ... Forty of them came mostly emptied of rent-stabilised tenants ... tenants left or suffered for reasons including dust from construction, a manager who changed a front-door lock during Hurricane Sandy, chronic leaks, & ceiling collapses ... One building after Kushner took over, tenants reporting leaks, ceiling collapses, an electrical fire, & nearly five months without gas under Kushner management.

    Hopkins: "drop a $314 million Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb "

    The program costs $314 million. How often has this bomb been used? Rhetorical question. If a hitman is paid $100k for an operation to assassinate one (or several persons), is the overall cost of that hit the cost of the bullet? Again, rhetorical question.

    In my career I was involved in a few defense projects and the $314M sounds about right for a whole program for such a product. The way government programs work, they are vastly more expensive than the commercial programs I normally managed.
    The $170k cost for an individual MOAB still sounds a little low. If you add in the operational costs involved in actually getting it delivered, it would be more reasonable that it will cost at least a million to get one on that cave, but certainly not 314 million.
    As a side note one defense project I worked on was in partnership with Raytheon. This was years ago when the DOD was on a fad for " fixed cost " programs. As the costs mounted and the company burned through all the government money, and reached the point where it was spending its own money to meet the DOD's demands, Raytheon offered to let us have the whole thing ourselves. My company took over the whole thing and spent all the profits it had made on our commercial projects to pay for the DOD project. Eventually we were bought out by a famous organization that specializes in buying distressed business properties, then parting them out and reselling the pieces at a handsome profit. I don't think the DOD project ever got finished and deployed.

    todays Jewyorktimes...."WASHINGTON — When President Trump swept into the White House in January, some of his advisers gleefully predicted that his victory would set off a populist wave across Europe, scattering mainstream parties on the left and right and wedding Europeans to the same nationalist ideology that Mr. Trump espoused in the United States.

    With far-right parties then on the rise across the Continent, it did not seem that far-fetched a proposition.

    Now, with the French presidential election starting this weekend, Mr. Trump faces the stiffest test yet of whether his brand of nationalism and nativism appeals to voters elsewhere in the Western world...."
    ------------
    The article continues with poo-poohing the nationalist movement in Europe but covering its butt by saying that the National Front may win.

    This is what is important about Trump. As I have said earlier, if he tilts toward the Jewish State and more war...that is the price we have to pay for the Start of The Counter-Revolution. Also, as I have stated, killing more Arabs for the Jews, sends more terrorists and Migrants North to Europe. That helps the White Revolt. That may be too bad but...

    The coverage that the muzzie/arab/african genital cutting of little girls is getting finally....also helps the White Revolt. The myth of racial equality is starting to erode.

    I wonder what the Counter Punchies have to say about that? Cultural Relativism and Self-Determination...of course, for the darkies. Whites do not get to Self-Determine. We are to be overrun by darkies and have our Culture destroyed. Whites must die....that is the left-jewish-liberal position

    Counter that, punchdrunk lefties.

    I admire the author’s straightforward approach. We didn’t even have to get through the first paragraph to see the leftist propaganda; the title told you all you needed to know.

    "and, no, I’m not referring to “the Jews,” I’m referring to the global capitalist establishment"

    Which are, interestingly enough, disproportionately jewish.

    "(and with Cohn and the usual Goldman Sachs guys making sure he doesn’t go nuts and start screwing around with their ongoing efforts to transform the planet into one big happy, neo-feudalist theme park prison)"

    Oh, I guess he is referring to "the jews".

    Even though I’m still not much of a capitalist, this is precisely why I abandoned the left. I just couldn’t go through life policing my own thoughts in such a fashion. However hard I tried, I could just never quite manage to ‘unsee’ all those ‘coincidences’, such as how banking, foreign policy and the MSM are now almost completely Jew-dominated. I could never unsee how one tiny little country in the middle east–with a higher per capita income than our own!–was able to lay claim to the majority of our foreign aid (plus countless wars and Security Council vetoes) year after year after year. I just couldn’t unsee how we’re building monuments to the Holocaust in our own capital, even though our country had absolutely to do with it! In fact, we were at war with the very country that was. But we’re supposed to feel guilty over something we never did.

    My own red-pill moment came about 15 years ago, when I noticed that all the neocons behind Bush were about 90% Jewish. That was far too high a percentage to be random. And once I started reading up on them, I was astonished at how closely they resembled the early Russian bolsheviks in their methods and worldview. I finally came to the conclusion that the Jew-mafia doesn’t really care whether a system is capitalist or communist, so long as their little Jew-mafia controls it.

    Do I hate all Jews? No, of course. For example, I have immense respect for Mr. Unz because of his work through the years, culminating in the founding of this very–and very excellent–website. It may well be that the truly dangerous Jews are actually small in number; unfortunately though, it seems that they all too well how to push the buttons of most of the other Jews so as enforce the tribal mentality. Witness how they behaved during the Trump campaign (and yes, I am now over him, too): rage, desperation, hysteria! You would’ve thought Trump was a brownshirt or a cossack on horseback! Instead, he turned out to be just another bankster-controlled zionist.

    I have come to the conclusion that this Jew-mafia–along with their new-world-order goy allies, such as the Rockefellers–are the greatest menace our world now knows.

    If Hillary, Bernie or anyone else had won we’d be fighting either WWIII with Russia over a desert landscape or we’d be suffering from yet another abysmal phyric victory in the middle east. Either way trillions of dollars are wasted bombing weddings, funerals, soldiers and Muslims while even more millions lives are dislocated and yet another quagmire of a terrorist overrun shit hole opens up right next to Europe and Russia while Turkey becomes the next national province to be shafted by ISIS on their ever expanding question of death and destruction.

    How is it that you can’t pick up a mainstream newspaper on any given day now, 67 years after Nazism in Germany was totally eradicated without reading about some reference to either Hitler or Nazism?

    Even though I'm still not much of a capitalist, this is precisely why I abandoned the left. I just couldn't go through life policing my own thoughts in such a fashion. However hard I tried, I could just never quite manage to 'unsee' all those 'coincidences', such as how banking, foreign policy and the MSM are now almost completely Jew-dominated. I could never unsee how one tiny little country in the middle east--with a higher per capita income than our own!--was able to lay claim to the majority of our foreign aid (plus countless wars and Security Council vetoes) year after year after year. I just couldn't unsee how we're building monuments to the Holocaust in our own capital, even though our country had absolutely to do with it! In fact, we were at war with the very country that was. But we're supposed to feel guilty over something we never did.

    My own red-pill moment came about 15 years ago, when I noticed that all the neocons behind Bush were about 90% Jewish. That was far too high a percentage to be random. And once I started reading up on them, I was astonished at how closely they resembled the early Russian bolsheviks in their methods and worldview. I finally came to the conclusion that the Jew-mafia doesn't really care whether a system is capitalist or communist, so long as their little Jew-mafia controls it.

    Do I hate all Jews? No, of course. For example, I have immense respect for Mr. Unz because of his work through the years, culminating in the founding of this very--and very excellent--website. It may well be that the truly dangerous Jews are actually small in number; unfortunately though, it seems that they all too well how to push the buttons of most of the other Jews so as enforce the tribal mentality. Witness how they behaved during the Trump campaign (and yes, I am now over him, too): rage, desperation, hysteria! You would've thought Trump was a brownshirt or a cossack on horseback! Instead, he turned out to be just another bankster-controlled zionist.

    I have come to the conclusion that this Jew-mafia--along with their new-world-order goy allies, such as the Rockefellers--are the greatest menace our world now knows.

    That’s consolidated from 50 companies back in 1983. But the fact that a few companies own everything demonstrates “the illusion of choice,” Frugal Dad says.

    Well, folks, I think it's about time we all get over Trump and recognize the system for the fetid cesspool it has always been.

    While I loathe both him and the system, at least he made mincemeat of Hillary and the other clowns, and is now in the process of tearing down the curtain so that even the most faithful should get a glimpse and whiff of the piles of reeking compost behind it.

    Why do you loathe him? Do you believe what the liberal magazines, newspapers and TV said about him?

  52. Reminds me of the Creature From Jekyll Island where the bankers feigned opposition to the 1913 Federal Reserve Act in order to dupe the electorate and get it passed. Doth the Lady protest too much during the Presidential election this last time around too?

    Trump emphatically espoused an “Israel First” mentality during the election despite the screeching against him from that quarter. That’s what I didn’t like about him, that despite playing the populist anti-war chord, being Israel-first means more Balkanization wars for Israel. It’s just talking out of both sides of your mouth.

    But who knows. Trump is a wild card for me now – no telling what he is capable of with Korea and the whole Syria-Iraq ISIS/Assad/Saudi kill-a-thon in full blossom.

    Hang on to your hats.

    I'm still holding out hope that his pro Zion policy is just more posturing to keep his Republitards in line, because as you said, the Jews themselves hate him. That his 'fair play' Christian background will prevail but we shall see, some of his own gentile aides, like 'slurpy dawg' Mattis seem more pro Israel than actual Neocohens.

    Trump has scored a ZERO when it comes to defunding ISIS. In his campaign, he talked about cutting off their money – now nothing!

    Saudi Wahhabism is responsible for ISIS and its terror.

    If anything, he has sided with the Saudis – and helped them destroy Yemen.

    This must stop if we want peace in the ME.

    Peace --- Art

    p.s. Trump and the Saudis must have the same bankers – what’s their name – Rothschild?

    Cowardly brainwashed Hopkins tiptoes around the jooies.......the only group that cannot be depicted accurately in public. A caveat has to be added..... "some of my best friends and mentors are jooies (Linh Dinh)", "not all jooies are neocon Izzy firsters", "Unz is a good guy", etc etc. We have a first amendment here....unlike the subservient canadian colony and the hopeless euroweanies who actually prosecute "hate speech". The jooies run Trumpstein, run the media, run the banking system, run the entertainment industries......and deserve all the hatred heaped on them and then some.

    Fine. But not Ron Unz, who is indeed a good guy who’s willing to allow his website to become a platform for helping to expose the zionists, Fedsters, et al. An honest man is still an honest man, even if he’s Jewish.
