President Trump is the leader of America’s conservative party.

Yet not even his allies would describe him as a conservative in the tradition of Robert Taft, Russell Kirk or William F. Buckley.

In the primaries of 2016, all his rivals claimed the mantle of Mr. Conservative, Ronald Reagan. Yet Trump captured the party’s heart.

Who, then, and what is Donald Trump?

In a Federalist essay, “Trump Isn’t a Conservative — And That’s a Good Thing,” Frank Cannon comes close to the mark.

Trump, he writes, “would more accurately be described as a ‘radical anti-progressive’” who is “at war with the progressives who have co-opted American civil society.” Moreover, Trump “is willing to go further than any other previous conservative to defeat them.”

Many “elite conservatives,” writes Cannon, believe the “bedrock institutions” they treasure are “not subject to the same infectious politicization to which the rest of society has succumbed.”

This belief is naive, says Cannon, “ridiculous on its face.”

“Radical anti-progressives” recognize that many institutions — the academy, media, entertainment and the courts — have been co-opted and corrupted by the left. And as these institutions are not what they once were, they no longer deserve the respect they once had.

Yet most conservatives will only go so far in criticizing these institutions. We see this in how cradle Catholics find it difficult to criticize the Church in which they were birthed and raised, despite scandals and alterations in the liturgy and doctrine.

Trump sees many institutions as fortresses lately captured by radical progressives that must be attacked and besieged if they are to be recaptured and liberated. Cannon deals with three such politicized institutions: the media, the NFL and the courts.

Trump does not attack freedom of the press but rather the moral authority and legitimacy of co-opted media institutions. It is what CNN has become, not what CNN was, that Trump disrespects.

These people are political enemies posturing as journalists who create “fake news” to destroy me, says Trump. Enraged media, responding, reveal themselves to be not far removed from what Trump says they are.

And, since Trump, media credibility has plummeted.

Before 2016, the NFL was an untouchable. When the league demanded that North Carolina accept the radical transgender agenda or face NFL sanctions, the Tar Heel State capitulated. When Arizona declined to make Martin Luther King’s birthday a holiday in 1990, the NFL took away the Super Bowl. The Sun State caved.

This year, the league demanded respect for the beliefs and behavior of NFL players insulting Old Glory by “taking a knee” during the national anthem.

Many conservative politicians and commentators, fearing the NFL’s almost mythic popularity in Middle America, remained mute.

But believing instinctively America would side with him, Trump delivered a full-throated defense of the flag and called for kicking the kneelers off the field, out of the game, and off the team.

“Fire them!” Trump bellowed.

And Trump triumphed. The NFL lost fans and viewers. The players ended the protests. No one took a knee at the Super Bowl.

Before Trump, the FBI was sacrosanct. But Trump savaged an insiders’ cabal at the top of the FBI he saw as having plotted to defeat him.

Trump has not attacked an independent judiciary, but courts like the Ninth Circuit, controlled by progressives and abusing their offices to advance progressive goals, and federal judges using lifetime tenure and political immunity to usurp powers that belong to the president — on immigration, for example.

Among the reasons Congress is disrespected is that it let the Supreme Court seize its power over social policy and convert itself into a judicial dictatorship — above Congress.

Trump is no Beltway conservative, writes Cannon.

ORDER IT NOW

“Trump doesn’t play by these ridiculous rules designed to keep conservatives stuck in a perpetual state of losing — a made-for-CNN version of the undefeated Harlem Globetrotters versus the winless Washington Generals. Trump instead seeks to fight and delegitimize any institution the Left has captured, and rebuild it from the ground up.”

The Trump supporters who most relish the wars he is waging are the “Middle American Radicals,” of whom my columnist-colleague and late friend Sam Francis used to write.

There was a time such as today before in America.

After World War II, as it became clear our long-ruling liberal elites had blundered horribly in trusting Stalin, patriots arose to cleanse our institutions of treason and its fellow travelers.

The Hollywood Ten were exposed and went to jail. Nixon nailed Alger Hiss. Truman used the Smith Act to shut down Stalin’s subsidiary, the Communist Party USA. Spies in the atom bomb program were run down. The Rosenbergs went to the electric chair.

Liberals call it the “Red Scare.” And they are right to do so.

For when the patriots of the Greatest Generation like Jack Kennedy and Richard Nixon and Joe McCarthy came home from the war and went after them, the nation’s Reds had never been so scared in their entire lives.

Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of a new book, “Nixon’s White House Wars: The Battles That Made and Broke a President and Divided America Forever.”

    Donald J. Trump is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. I can’t think of a single public figure in American history that has been as polarizing as Trump. Yet he is not an ideologue, nor a strict adherent to any known political philosophy. It is doubtful Trump has one, or could even articulate one coherently. He is by no means a Conservative or a practicing Christian. He has been on both sides of the most divisive social issues. It must be out of pure desperation for leadership that solid conservatives like Patrick Buchanan and neoconservative Sean Hannity give such undying support to Donald Trump. Trump‘s escalation of the war in Syria, his disastrous recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and the moving of the American Embassy to that city, is diametrically opposed to everything Pat Buchanan stands for, yet he writes as if Trump came to America on a white horse. I’m perplexed. If America has gotten to the point where a Donald Trump is the solution to her problems we are truly screwed.

    Trump has not escalated the war in Syria. Where did you get this idea? Yet you are right to some extent: He has to be wary of the Zionist caucus, who are the real controllers of modern America. His recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was, I suspect, to appease the anger of the Zionists after he allowed the Russians and Syrians to destroy ISIS/Al Qaida in Syria.

  2. Trump is genius. (a stable genius even)

    He saw Twitter and understood he could bypass the media and destroy their control.

    It has been the saturation media presence through all its forms in our society which has sold us all the idea that we can have it all, and that the media cares about us, and the government cares about us, and the unions care about us and gays and feminists care about us and only want the best for everyone.

    In reality all they wanted was money and the best jobs and the power to screw what they want, and divorce their wives, and kill their unborn babies and sell the poor junk and porn and violent trash and drugs, and they cared little about what they destroyed to get these things

    Trump, he writes, “would more accurately be described as a ‘radical anti-progressive’”

    Or in other words a reactionary. That word has bad connotations, but could do with rehabilitating for the needs of today – a situation in the nations of the US sphere in which leftists (internationalist social radicals) have now been in power for so long and have so profoundly warped society that mere conservatism is merely protecting the indefensible.

    A nation in which the majority are actively despised and discriminated against, in which sexual perversion is lauded and encouraged, in which the lies of political correctness (there is no such thing as race, sex differences don’t exist, homosexual activity is equivalent to normal sexual activity, etc) are promoted as establishment dogmas, is a nation on the road to destruction, and mainstream “conservatives” demonstrate time and again their inability to do anything other than kowtow to those lies of political correctness.

    Before 2016, the NFL was an untouchable. When the league demanded that North Carolina accept the radical transgender agenda or face NFL sanctions, the Tar Heel State capitulated. When Arizona declined to make Martin Luther King’s birthday a holiday in 1990, the NFL took away the Super Bowl. The Sun State caved.

    Until such actions by big business have clear and unequivocally direct negative consequences for the businesses involved, we will never break the unholy alliance between business and social radicalism. Because the loud-screeching, highly motivated minority identity lobby will always get the ear of business ahead of the quieter majority.

    It's not just the screeching. Big business is often pretty much in cahoots with Big Feral Gov. This helps them to keep the competition from the small guy down and avoid pressure from the Feral Gov.

    You are right that people have to take some steps to remove their support. It is hard enough to get people to just switch off the damn cable TV. All work done off the books is a step in the right direction (note, your tax accountant may - or may not - have slightly differing advice.) Homeschooling can be a much bigger stick to poke the eye of the establishment with, as Peak Stupidity has noted here, here, and here.

    "Or in other words a reactionary. That word has bad connotations, but could do with rehabilitating for the needs of today"

    It has bad connotations among the leftists who use it as a pejorative term in the same way they use "fascist". GOPtards in Congress fear being labeled reactionary, because they fear the assault of the left.

    There's nothing wrong with reacting to an attack, and nobody but a leftist or one of their servants should fear being labeled a reactionary. The term might be used as an identifier, but it will still scare what passes for a conservative party in Congress.

    I would like to see some genuine reactionaries arise in Congress.

    No, that is some more rubbish.

  6. In a Federalist essay, “Trump Isn’t a Conservative — And That’s a Good Thing,” Frank Cannon comes close to the mark.

    Trump is not a conservative, but most of the “conservative” politicians are not actually conservatives either. Additionally Trump is one of the few against the progressive/cntrl-left establishment who is not a pussy. That’s what it comes down to. This column starts off wrong, and doesn’t get a whole lot righter as one reads on.

    Buchanan says that Trump is the one who turned Americans against CNN, the NFL, and the FBI, as his examples of re-attacking the institutions that have been taken over. Let’s look at each one for a bit.

    CNN has never been anything but an establishment institution of infotainment. It’s never been conservative. People have known this, but, without the internet in the past, have tuned in out of laziness. Trump is right that CNN, along with the rest, are against him, and no doubt, the Hildabeast would have their backing, hence nothing bad to say. So what, I’ll believe people are done with CNN when they cut off their cable TV.

    Would one not expect the AZ and NC state governments to bow down to business interests because they want the money for the superbowl to flow in? I don’t know who Pat’s “mum conservative commentators are”, but plenty had had enough with the national anthem BS, while Peak Stupidity maintained it was an “equal-stupidity operation”. The NFL was losing viewership and attendance before President Trump chimed in about it. Same thing, until people turn the crap off and unplug, they haven’t changed anything.

    The FBI has been politicized since the days of J. Edgar Hoover, and part-time historian Buchanan should know that. Real conservatives have had lots of hatred for the organization since the massacre at Waco and murders in Ruby Ridge, Idaho.

    I appreciate the president speaking out against the establishment, but these examples don’t cut it. When Mr. Buchanan got around to Trump and the courts, that was finally getting to the gist of it – these political dealings, court appointments, these EO’s, and the pushing for legislation to roll back the cntrl-left tide – that’s the conservative stuff that a guy like Ronald Reagan (real conservative) did and what we need out of Trump.

    You want a real conservative, Pat? Look in the mirror. We can definitely use a few. About this column though, I’ll call out a lame-ass article when I see one, and this is a lame-ass article.

  7. Trump, unfortunately, does share something with Beltway conservatives; obsequiousness to Israel and the Jewish lobby.

    He’s definitely a step in the right direction but falls short on this critical matter. But he will do until a true patriot like Paul Nehlan is ready to take the role.

But the NFL has that rarity, a strong union. Moreover, the owners who would gladly give the players the boot, are dependent on their talents–talent is not fungible. So the owners shut up.
    The NFL confrontation is a class issue: owner class against empowered worker class. The power of the worker class caused the NFL to back down.
    Working class whites who cheered Trump are dupes who don’t realize he is not on their side.
    And by the way, in the last 50 or so years USrael has murdered as many as 20 million people. Why shouldn’t you take a knee when Old Glory is celebrated. What makes taking a knee disrespectful? How else to show the sadness at the spiritual and economic demise of our country.

    No. It was a race issue. It was blacks wanting to say loud and clear that the American government doesn't represent them.

    Ironically, while blacks are hilariously wrong about being unfairly targeted by cops, I agree with their sentiment. I don't think that the American government represents my people either.

    The NFL brouhaha is yet another small sign that multi-everything societies don't work. The various racial, ethnic, religious and cultural groups eventually view everything through the lens of what their group is getting. Everything become a group spoils system and any edge for one group - higher income or overrepresentation in high-level positions - becomes a point of contention.

    Working class whites who cheered Trump are dupes who don’t realize he is not on their side.
     
    While I somewhat agree with this particular point, working class whites love Trump because he's the first politician in 50 years who even acknowledges them and might try to help them. The reason the globalists hate Trump is not because he's a white nationalist but because he might accidentally get whites to think in group/racial terms. Sadly, Trump seems very much to be mostly "colorblind," but by just acknowledging that whites exist and might want a say in their future just like any other group, he's extremely dangerous.

    You must be new here.

    If the NFL players were taking the knee against US military adventures done on behalf of Israel I think you'd find that just about everyone here would support them.

    Instead, they were taking the knee as a middle finger to the dumb working class Whites who still watch monkey ball and are still stupid enough to think that America is their country. I, and many other nationalists, supported them, just not for the reasons they wanted.

    I hope they do the same thing next year but I doubt they will, since their owners have noticed that it's negatively affected the inflow of shekels.

    Recently, I read Herbert Philbrick's book, "I Led 3 Lives," first published in 1952. Philbrick went undercover for the FBI as a Communist party member in the Boston area during the 1940's.

    The Party was already pushing what has become "mainstream" now. For example Communist doctrine was "boys can't play with other boys only. They have to play with girls as well."

    Trump may be a “radical anti-progressive” in word/tweet but rarely in deed. He’s surrounded himself with political centrists, leftist Jews and neo-cons. I don’t know of any policy that’s been enacted or DOJ action that’s been implemented (besides defunding sanctuary cities) that halts, weakens or reverses the progressive (radical anti-white) tide in any of our institutions or puts them on the defensive.

    Sure, he punked the NFL over the anthem protest, but they’ve quietly triple downed on support for black supremacist and SJW causes and have pledged millions of dollars to do so.

    Trump is the same “radical anti-progressive” that signed a resolution effectively making the alt-right and white nationalists public enemy number one. Previously, something like this was just a wet dream of most lefties and anti-whites but Trump and the Republican majority made it a reality.

    The alt-right and white nationalists have been marginalized on the internet, but that’s ok because princess Ivanka said we have no place in America.

    Thus far Trump is only center to slightly right and with a few exceptions Trump might appear to be a right wing crusader only because Obama and the Democrats have moved so far to the left. But in reality he’s only a center to slightly rightist and with few exceptions he’s been a conventional establishment Republican with tax cuts, endless war for Israel and probable amnesty in exchange for some token reductions in legal immigration.

    No. It was a race issue. It was blacks wanting to say loud and clear that the American government doesn’t represent them.

    Ironically, while blacks are hilariously wrong about being unfairly targeted by cops, I agree with their sentiment. I don’t think that the American government represents my people either.

    The NFL brouhaha is yet another small sign that multi-everything societies don’t work. The various racial, ethnic, religious and cultural groups eventually view everything through the lens of what their group is getting. Everything become a group spoils system and any edge for one group – higher income or overrepresentation in high-level positions – becomes a point of contention.

    Working class whites who cheered Trump are dupes who don’t realize he is not on their side.

    While I somewhat agree with this particular point, working class whites love Trump because he’s the first politician in 50 years who even acknowledges them and might try to help them. The reason the globalists hate Trump is not because he’s a white nationalist but because he might accidentally get whites to think in group/racial terms. Sadly, Trump seems very much to be mostly “colorblind,” but by just acknowledging that whites exist and might want a say in their future just like any other group, he’s extremely dangerous.

    Trump, he writes, “would more accurately be described as a ‘radical anti-progressive’”
     
    Or in other words a reactionary. That word has bad connotations, but could do with rehabilitating for the needs of today - a situation in the nations of the US sphere in which leftists (internationalist social radicals) have now been in power for so long and have so profoundly warped society that mere conservatism is merely protecting the indefensible.

    A nation in which the majority are actively despised and discriminated against, in which sexual perversion is lauded and encouraged, in which the lies of political correctness (there is no such thing as race, sex differences don't exist, homosexual activity is equivalent to normal sexual activity, etc) are promoted as establishment dogmas, is a nation on the road to destruction, and mainstream "conservatives" demonstrate time and again their inability to do anything other than kowtow to those lies of political correctness.


    Before 2016, the NFL was an untouchable. When the league demanded that North Carolina accept the radical transgender agenda or face NFL sanctions, the Tar Heel State capitulated. When Arizona declined to make Martin Luther King’s birthday a holiday in 1990, the NFL took away the Super Bowl. The Sun State caved.
     
    Until such actions by big business have clear and unequivocally direct negative consequences for the businesses involved, we will never break the unholy alliance between business and social radicalism. Because the loud-screeching, highly motivated minority identity lobby will always get the ear of business ahead of the quieter majority.

    “Or in other words a reactionary. That word has bad connotations, but could do with rehabilitating for the needs of today”

    It has bad connotations among the leftists who use it as a pejorative term in the same way they use “fascist”. GOPtards in Congress fear being labeled reactionary, because they fear the assault of the left.

    There’s nothing wrong with reacting to an attack, and nobody but a leftist or one of their servants should fear being labeled a reactionary. The term might be used as an identifier, but it will still scare what passes for a conservative party in Congress.

    I would like to see some genuine reactionaries arise in Congress.

    Another way of reading the NFL flap is that Trump was acting like a thuggish owner of a big corporation or plantation. He told the players, you are employees, do what i say or get out. But the NFL has that rarity, a strong union. Moreover, the owners who would gladly give the players the boot, are dependent on their talents--talent is not fungible. So the owners shut up.

    Donald J. Trump is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. I can’t think of a single public figure in American history that has been as polarizing as Trump. Yet he is not an ideologue, nor a strict adherent to any known political philosophy. It is doubtful Trump has one, or could even articulate one coherently. He is by no means a Conservative or a practicing Christian. He has been on both sides of the most divisive social issues. It must be out of pure desperation for leadership that solid conservatives like Patrick Buchanan and neoconservative Sean Hannity give such undying support to Donald Trump. Trump‘s escalation of the war in Syria, his disastrous recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and the moving of the American Embassy to that city, is diametrically opposed to everything Pat Buchanan stands for, yet he writes as if Trump came to America on a white horse. I’m perplexed. If America has gotten to the point where a Donald Trump is the solution to her problems we are truly screwed.

    Trump has not escalated the war in Syria. Where did you get this idea? Yet you are right to some extent: He has to be wary of the Zionist caucus, who are the real controllers of modern America. His recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was, I suspect, to appease the anger of the Zionists after he allowed the Russians and Syrians to destroy ISIS/Al Qaida in Syria.

    Trump, unfortunately, does share something with Beltway conservatives; obsequiousness to Israel and the Jewish lobby.

    He's definitely a step in the right direction but falls short on this critical matter. But he will do until a true patriot like Paul Nehlan is ready to take the role.

    [The] Red Scare was about commies who were culturally more conservative than even today’s ‘conservatives’ who cuck out to homos.
     
    Absolute bullshit - the commies were pushing their anti-family, pro-feminist, pro-commie crap on the American people even back then. That's when the internal Cold War was just starting. Nope, I agree with Mr. Buchanan's one paragraph on that and Mr. Bartoks writing on that part. Commies are commies - they are by definition anything but conservative.

    In the end, the commies were not the main enemies of America. It was the capitalist-globalists.
     
    Capitalists, no, crony-capitalists (in-bed-with-Feral-Gov, basically economically fascists) and globalists, yes. The Globalists just want to make sure Communism covers the whole world this time, as run from Washington, FS. They screwed the pooch last time.

    [The] Cold War was stupid because it pit [ted] American patriots against Russian patriots when, in fact, they should have worked together against globalist capitalists.
     
    No, that is some more rubbish. American patriots still had control of their government in the middle of the past century and pitted our engineers, soldiers, sailors, and airmen against the Soviet government. The Russian people had no say in the matter - that's how Communism works, once it gets up and running.

    Of course the Russians love their children too, you dumb bass player! That's not to you Anon, as I don't know if you play bass guitar - that was directed at a guy named Sting, but you could read it and learn something.

    “Absolute bullshit – the commies were pushing their anti-family, pro-feminist, pro commie crap on the American people even back then.”

    Recently, I read Herbert Philbrick’s book, “I Led 3 Lives,” first published in 1952. Philbrick went undercover for the FBI as a Communist party member in the Boston area during the 1940′s.

    The Party was already pushing what has become “mainstream” now. For example Communist doctrine was “boys can’t play with other boys only. They have to play with girls as well.”

    You must be new here.

    If the NFL players were taking the knee against US military adventures done on behalf of Israel I think you’d find that just about everyone here would support them.

    Instead, they were taking the knee as a middle finger to the dumb working class Whites who still watch monkey ball and are still stupid enough to think that America is their country. I, and many other nationalists, supported them, just not for the reasons they wanted.

    I hope they do the same thing next year but I doubt they will, since their owners have noticed that it’s negatively affected the inflow of shekels.

I think this may mean he doesn’t have the tool set and philosophy to MAGA, because there actually are concrete simple reasons why America has been great. Hopefully he stumbles across enough of them.

    I see Trump less as a radical and more as a corrective reactionary, but that’s because I believe the word “radical” has a unique definition among words describing extreme political paths or policies. A radical is someone who pursues a narrow set of goals to the exclusion of all or most other considerations, and I don’t believe that describes Trump, but I understand what Buchanan and Cannon are saying. I believe they’re correct.

    Trump as a political entity is analogous to the recent disruption of the stock market boom of the last year – a necessary, expected and inevitable correction to an unsustainable movement in one direction. The left should see Trump for what he is: a relief valve to keep an actual Hitler from coming to power.

  42. Buchanan does a very good job here. He and Canon are correct. It’s unfortunate however that Trump has been captured by the Zionists. Buchanan avoids this elephant in room since Zionist power is even more formidable and unforgiving than the nebulous Leftist agenda that dominates so much of America’s media, judiciary and educational institutions.

    But the President cannot serve two masters.

    What will happen if/when Trump is forced to choose between what’s good for America and what Israel demands of Washington?

    So far, Trump (like his predecessors) has acquiesced to virtually everything that the Israel Lobby demands: war upon Assad’s Syria, the continuation of the US war in Afghanistan, punishment for Palestine as well as harsh sanctions upon Iran and Russia, extension of US interference in the affairs of any virtually any foreign state where ‘anti-Semitism’ is detected, and (of course) unconditional aid to the nuclear rogue state of Israel.

    What will happen if Trump ever dares to push back and say ‘NO’ to the Lobby? This will be the final test and greatest test for any US president.

    I suspect that has been going on since day one, and is the razor's edge that he's been tiptoeing on since he began this effort. It'd be silly to pretend he doesn't know the score.

    Hence the Jerusalem move, and his near total (putative at least) support for the zio-agenda down the line. Including, unfortunately, continued use of the terror-drones, and other atrocities..

    But this is the thing.. He's not piloting a jet ski, or even an aircraft carrier group. Where a decision to alter course of this ship of state can be ordered and implemented on a dime, or even a nautical mile.

    The ship of state that Trump is (nominally) captain of is a behemoth with tentacles reaching into every corner of the globe. It's like nothing that has ever existed before, with technologies that are uncharted territory. It isn't just the NSA that listens to every phone call and reads every text, but the Mossad and KGB as well, not to mention a slew of private and state hackers galore, all vying to see their interests advanced.

    It isn't just Rothchild and his banking cabal. It's also Big Oil and Monsanto and Big Pharma and the Saudis and MIC and Wall Street and a gob of other black holes of greed and treachery that are all demanding their own pound of flesh/slice of the American pie - respectively.

    You can't just throw a switch and end a hundred years of corruption and graft and treasonous fealty to all things Zion.. overnight.

    These things take time, with a glaring realization that they've assassinated presidents before, and can do so again. Trump has to implement a
    Praetorian Guard around him and his family like no other.

    He has to mollify the MIC, and the Zio-fiend. He has to invigorate the ZUS economy and placate Les Deplorables if he stands any chance of re-election- (something that necessarily must always be at the back of his mind).

    The world that existed for the last few centuries no longer exists, due to exponentially exploding advances in technology. The consequences of which even the tech gurus are themselves hard-pressed to anticipate with any certainty.

    It seems to me that Trump is tyring to play this new game as well as he can, and I don't see him ideologically (or reluctantly in the case of Obama) in slavish fealty to Israel, as all the rest of them have been for decades, if longer.

    Yes, he declared Jerusalem the capital, but what actual horrors has such a move wrought, unlike Bush and Obama and Hillary's catastrophic Endless Wars and serial destruction of nation after nation?

    Bush, Obama and Hillary were willing to destroy entire nations to appease the Fiend, whereas Trump seems to me to be reluctant to bomb Iran or engage with Russia in Syria.

    (and he's driving the minions of the Satan apoplectic with his brash, unapologetic white male swagger, something worth the price of admission for it's own sake, I have to admit ; )

    What will happen if Trump ever dares to push back and say ‘NO’ to the Lobby? This will be the final test and greatest test for any US president
     
    .
    It may be that we are witness to the crucible of Trump's mettle right now, as Israel and Russia come to a head over the Golan Heights and Iran's ascendancy in the greater Levant.

    Syria and Turkey and the Kurds (and even the Saudis and Libya and Iraq and Afghanistan, etc..) have been pawns and dupes to the greater agenda being hashed out in the Middle East right now.

    Israel, as we all know, wants.. nay, rather demands total domination of the region. They always have, and they always will. That is their nature, as I don't have to tell you ;)

    So as Israel licks its wounded vanity over the downed jet in Syria, and realized that Putin gave that the green light, and comes to grips with a new paradigm, they're going to demand that Trump give them a blank check to bomb Iran, as a retaliation for 'Iran shooting down their jet'. (regardless of the actual facts, as we all know are irrelevant ; )

    And what Trump does then, will set the tone for what is going to transpire in the new Middle East, with an ascendant Iran and a reined in Fiend.

    If he accomplishes that, (which would not have been possible without the greatness of Putin's statesmanship) then we could be in for a time of hope that neither you (I'm guessing) nor I could have ever dreamed possible.

    but if he gives Bibi the blank check, then all, I suspect- is lost.

    Why would he push back? When Trump is a pro Zionist?
    He got tons of aid from Zionists money. Mercer, Goldman Sachs.

    Hes working with Chabad Labovitch.
    His children or whatever are Jewish.

    Buchanan does a very good job here. He and Canon are correct. It's unfortunate however that Trump has been captured by the Zionists. Buchanan avoids this elephant in room since Zionist power is even more formidable and unforgiving than the nebulous Leftist agenda that dominates so much of America's media, judiciary and educational institutions.

    But the President cannot serve two masters.

    What will happen if/when Trump is forced to choose between what's good for America and what Israel demands of Washington?

    So far, Trump (like his predecessors) has acquiesced to virtually everything that the Israel Lobby demands: war upon Assad's Syria, the continuation of the US war in Afghanistan, punishment for Palestine as well as harsh sanctions upon Iran and Russia, extension of US interference in the affairs of any virtually any foreign state where 'anti-Semitism' is detected, and (of course) unconditional aid to the nuclear rogue state of Israel.

    What will happen if Trump ever dares to push back and say 'NO' to the Lobby? This will be the final test and greatest test for any US president.

    Hey Mark,

    What will happen if/when Trump is forced to choose between what’s good for America and what Israel demands of Washington?

    I suspect that has been going on since day one, and is the razor’s edge that he’s been tiptoeing on since he began this effort. It’d be silly to pretend he doesn’t know the score.

    Hence the Jerusalem move, and his near total (putative at least) support for the zio-agenda down the line. Including, unfortunately, continued use of the terror-drones, and other atrocities..

    But this is the thing.. He’s not piloting a jet ski, or even an aircraft carrier group. Where a decision to alter course of this ship of state can be ordered and implemented on a dime, or even a nautical mile.

    The ship of state that Trump is (nominally) captain of is a behemoth with tentacles reaching into every corner of the globe. It’s like nothing that has ever existed before, with technologies that are uncharted territory. It isn’t just the NSA that listens to every phone call and reads every text, but the Mossad and KGB as well, not to mention a slew of private and state hackers galore, all vying to see their interests advanced.

    It isn’t just Rothchild and his banking cabal. It’s also Big Oil and Monsanto and Big Pharma and the Saudis and MIC and Wall Street and a gob of other black holes of greed and treachery that are all demanding their own pound of flesh/slice of the American pie – respectively.

    You can’t just throw a switch and end a hundred years of corruption and graft and treasonous fealty to all things Zion.. overnight.

    These things take time, with a glaring realization that they’ve assassinated presidents before, and can do so again. Trump has to implement a
    Praetorian Guard around him and his family like no other.

    He has to mollify the MIC, and the Zio-fiend. He has to invigorate the ZUS economy and placate Les Deplorables if he stands any chance of re-election- (something that necessarily must always be at the back of his mind).

    The world that existed for the last few centuries no longer exists, due to exponentially exploding advances in technology. The consequences of which even the tech gurus are themselves hard-pressed to anticipate with any certainty.

    It seems to me that Trump is tyring to play this new game as well as he can, and I don’t see him ideologically (or reluctantly in the case of Obama) in slavish fealty to Israel, as all the rest of them have been for decades, if longer.

    Yes, he declared Jerusalem the capital, but what actual horrors has such a move wrought, unlike Bush and Obama and Hillary’s catastrophic Endless Wars and serial destruction of nation after nation?

    Bush, Obama and Hillary were willing to destroy entire nations to appease the Fiend, whereas Trump seems to me to be reluctant to bomb Iran or engage with Russia in Syria.

    (and he’s driving the minions of the Satan apoplectic with his brash, unapologetic white male swagger, something worth the price of admission for it’s own sake, I have to admit ; )

    What will happen if Trump ever dares to push back and say ‘NO’ to the Lobby? This will be the final test and greatest test for any US president

    .
    It may be that we are witness to the crucible of Trump’s mettle right now, as Israel and Russia come to a head over the Golan Heights and Iran’s ascendancy in the greater Levant.

    Syria and Turkey and the Kurds (and even the Saudis and Libya and Iraq and Afghanistan, etc..) have been pawns and dupes to the greater agenda being hashed out in the Middle East right now.

    Israel, as we all know, wants.. nay, rather demands total domination of the region. They always have, and they always will. That is their nature, as I don’t have to tell you ;)

    So as Israel licks its wounded vanity over the downed jet in Syria, and realized that Putin gave that the green light, and comes to grips with a new paradigm, they’re going to demand that Trump give them a blank check to bomb Iran, as a retaliation for ‘Iran shooting down their jet’.

  44. Rehabilitating Joe McCarthy is in the same mold as rehabilitating Francisco Franco. Meanwhile, Trump is just an accident waiting to happen. When did the USA last have a real conservative statesman? Certainly not Reagan, he let the CIA run amok, and played dumb (or already had Alzheimer’s.) Ike? He was politically naive and let the Dulles brothers betray him (repeatedly.)

    ^ Pat will never wake up from his Pius X dream of hard-right Catholic conservatism and consequently will never see through the political lies routinely pressed on the American people no matter which side of the duopoly is in play from one ‘presidential’ cycle to the next (I invite a read at the link, to piss off everyone who appreciates Pat’s crap, with a parody)

    IDK

    Yet most conservatives will only go so far in criticizing these institutions. We see this in how cradle Catholics find it difficult to criticize the Church in which they were birthed and raised, despite scandals and alterations in the liturgy and doctrine.

    Trump sees many institutions as fortresses lately captured by radical progressives that must be attacked and besieged if they are to be recaptured and liberated.

     

    sounds like Pat is down for a war with globo-homo Poop Francis

    When did the USA last have a real conservative statesman?

  47. So far, I’ve seen quite a few descriptive phrases and words here; middle American radical (comically inappropriate), corrective reactionary, a stable genius (hilarious), radical anti-progressive, conventional establishment Republican, colorblind, a true blue American, an accident waiting to happen ( my favorite so far), and on and on.

    The one descriptive phrase I keep coming back to is: A pompous windbag. That describes him best to me, and I can excuse that because he’s in the public eye and that might be a natural reaction to nonstop scrutiny. Until he really screws the pooch, I’m going to give him a break and think of him as a pompous windbag.

    That’s as far as I’ll go in hanging an insulting reference on him, for now. He could turn out to be a 3D chess master or a duplicitous….so and so. Time will tell, but I don’t agree with Pat’s assessment of him.
