The Drumpf Middle East strategy looks doomed to me! Those who still believe in the consummate fraudster, sociopath and megalomaniac Drumpf, should probably begin to consider/reconsider now how Drump claimed ludicrously during the campaign that he knew more about ISIS than the generals! I’m not the world’s greatest Middle Eastern affairs expert, but it’s pretty clear to me what they (the Drumpf gang) are doing in the Middle East! And that is nothing about the financial/root sources of ISIS terrorism (Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE)! In truth entities such as Hezbollah and Iran should be a part of the coalition to crush ISIS, instead the gang that can’t shoot straight is ginning up “Flynn facts” and “alternative facts” about Iran and its Middle Eastern allies… And conducting dubious raids in Yemen, killing innocents and children — and towards achieving what end exactly?
Drumpf is planning a no-fly zone in Syria!
This was why Shillary was ostensibly no option at all, she would start WWIII! I must say my candidate Jill Stein also put this out there. I’d didn’t really agree with her, poking the Russian bear seemed to me to be something that the Obama admin enjoyed doing once the reset collapsed… I expected a Clinton II admin would poke the bear also, hopefully keeping in mind Mutually Assured Destruction is the reality if two or more great powers ever again go to war on this Earth! As Albert Einstein said (to paraphrase) he knew not what weapons WWIII would fought with (I assume that he assumed nuclear however), but WWIV would be fought with sticks and stones! (The MIC needs a great power as an enemy to justify all kinds of large-scale weaponry that aren’t needed against terrorists — who are sort of like small bands akin to guerrillas really.)
The neocons during the Dim Son Bush Reign of Error seemed to be at least feigning they no longer believed in Mutually Assured Destruction, but that was kind of an earlier version of alternative facts, I’d say. I’m not sure how you get around the reality of it… With an unhinged ersatz president — and additionally I think that this admin has a real neo-Nixonian tinge to it, and so I’d say that we are not only looking at another “Mutually Assured Destruction” denying White House resident, but a mad bomber to boot also! And of course Mutually Assured Destruction is not the only thing that this neofascist usurping clique are denying — among a multitude of other realities, that “the Orange One” (and his cretinous sycophantic minions) are planting their heads firmly in sand and unequivocally denying too!
The usual election experts I check weren’t saying the election was stolen right away… Bev Harris I understand thinks Hillary tried to rig it, but it wasn’t close enough so it would have been too obvious I think something along those lines… But then I came across the post on Mark Crispin Miller’s blog, Kevin Barrett mentioned it on his show. I had checked Palast before — he had some stuff on Ohio but not the whole thing, he is now saying it was stolen. Aangirfan’s posts are by no means authoritative I think he was the first that I saw to suggest it was stolen. He’s written a lengthy post on it now. I wondered that day of how Trump could win with only the Baby Boom Generation and white males. Women, Hispanics, blacks, Asians, college-educated whites, Millennials and Gen X were all against him!
I think they are saying Trump won whites with a college degree, I was reading prior to the election that they were against him. So then he had white males, the Baby Boom Generation and college-educated whites. I haven’t been able to find out how Gen X actually voted, I’d read the same kind of thing about them prior to the election as college-educated whites.
Lee Camp has done an episode on RT on the election:
I heard Bill Maher of all people (who I don’t respect but a stopped clock is right twice a day, haha) say Christians should call themselves Christ-likes! The Christians of today don’t seem to emulate their alleged leader very much IMO. I think most using the title Christian to describe themselves voted for this asshole! Gandhi said be the change you want to see in the world.
The raving, flailing lunatic Drumpf, shows he wants to see a world of destruction and chaos! And that’s what I anticipate he’ll bring! And this is what I mean in reference to Gandhi he was zen-like and not a frenzied pill popper, haha, or whatever look that Drumpf has been going for! Putting something up the nose undoubtedly, lol, with all of that sniffling!
This is not a real recent interview with Shillary, but I think that it’s kind of a surreal one. Shillary doesn’t look like a cyborg or some such who wants to bite the heads off babies in the interview. Some politicians kiss babies although in my opinion the stiff, wooden and robotic Hillary looks to me like she wants to bite their head offs, haha, when she’s out there glad-handing and doing the typical politician strut/thing!
Drumpf is not a globalist! Hahahaha! He uses Chinese steel, brings in foreign slaves (essentially) as models, hires non-American workers on his golf courses and illegal ones to build his buildings — and to boot he pays zero taxes which funds the whole government obviously, including perhaps most notably the VA which he claims that he’ll fix! This Likudnik, sociopath, uber-narcisist and all around madman should actually he eating crow right now, but indeed he has no shame!
Dr. Tarpley spent the whole first half of World Crisis Radio talking about the lawsuit. It seems Trump was not lying about going after the 1st amendment. Tarpley thinks this is an unprecedented effort, but I don’t think the full research is in yet. (As I understand his point no president or first lady or would-be president or would-be first lady has tendered this kind of suit.) He also thinks that a historian making a modest living in the DC suburbs can’t contest such a suit as this as easily as one of the biggest scandal sheets of Great Britain! Folks in the alternative media — including that hate him, should take heed of this, and the kind of potential chilling effect that this can have on small, independent and usually inadequately resourced media.
Trump I think owes a lot to certain segments of the alternative media… And so, I would think that these segments that are friendly to Trump would be concerned about this, although I don’t expect that they will be.
My take on Trump is that he’s a wild card he will be between Eisenhower and Mussolini. Eisenhower would be the best case scenario of course, and Mussolini the worst one. Not that I plan on voting for him; in fact, I’m not even sure that’s he’s ever told a truth! Or ever understands much of what he’s talking about for that matter (David Cay Johnston who’s followed him for a long time says that when you dig down on him he really knows nothing).
I plan to vote third party as I always do, I also didn’t expect Obama would bring any change — and didn’t vote for him. I personally take the view that my vote has to be earned (although it seems to me at this point we really have a system of paying for politicians campaigns, Trump is not self-financing just another of his multitude of lies that he spins daily, so voting is kind of beside the point)… I’ve been voting in presidential elections for quite a bit of time now, and not once has a Democrat or Republican been able to earn my vote.
Trump could have potentially earned my vote on three issues: trade, Israel-Palestine and the Stasi state. He’s not serious about tariffs, he’s cast aside any movement on how we deal with Israel and their illegal occupation of Palestinian lands, and he’s never acted as if the Stasi state is an issue at all. Indeed, it actually sounds as if it (the Stasi state) will be even more totalitarian/snooping under Drumpf!
I also care about taxes and foreign policy in general quite a bit. His tax proposals have been standard Republican fare, and there was some talk of a Ron Paul-style non-interventionist foreign policy regarding Trump it seemed for a time. From Trump’s statements though IMHO it doesn’t sound to me like this is what he’ll pursue at all. As early on the hopes of many folks were tacked on to Trump my assessments of the statements that he’s made over the course of his campaign is that he’s not a believer in this kind of a approach (non-interventionist) at all.
Lastly, I’ve even heard one prominent Trump supporter, James Fetzer, say on his show that he thinks Trump will have some kind revelation in office and magically come to the understanding that Medicare-for-all would be the best health care option for this nation. There’s zero evidence of this, it seems Trump has been actually trying to ingratiate himself at least somewhat with the Rethug establishment, Medicare-for-all is a non-starter with all of these folks, indeed, it’s something they’ve spent their lives being strident opponents of — a quest of their cast iron souls, lol, and how very Christian of them!
