Delwyn Lounsbury - The Deflation Guru on the Scapegoat Trump plot to win the election only to lose the country to the Greater Depression and take the blame for the bankster caused crash. Trump gets the black spot.
The Donald Trump Plot - It's Like Big Brother Joins the Mafia.
This is just like when President Hoover inherited, and was subsequently unfairly blamed (tent cities back then were called "Hoovervilles) for the 1930's deflation economy of the Great Depression which had to cycle down and bottom before it could rise anew.
That's what recessions and especially deflationary depressions do - collapse credit crazes, investment climaxes and wipe out mal-investments caused by inflating the money. President Hoover (a progressive) was an engineer and a smart cookie. He tried everything he could to get the deflation economy back on track. After the watering down of the money by the Federal Reserve Bank - not federal - not a reserve of anything and not a bank which is a private corporation run by elite owned unregulated and not audited banks. Aka - Foxes guarding the hen house. The subsequent "Roaring Twenties" excesses had to be squared before America could move forward.
Progressives led by President Franklin Roosevelt back then only prolonged the recovery for at least five years with make-work projects and piles of regulations and subsidies and the onset of socialism at a new scale. Many "progressive subterfuges" are still with us today like agricultural subsidies, make work projects and growth of government at all levels. They are a drag on freedom and free markets.
Unfortunately, Trump and the feckless Republican Party will be blamed for the socionomic waning of the Grand Supercyle crash (To be called - take your choice - Greater Depression or Greatest Depression - although the fall of Rome and the resulting 400 years of feudalism stagnation in the Middle ages may have been the greatest depression, so far). A deflation and global credit collapse - a colonic purge that - once again, was going to happen anyway.
THE TRUMP WIN means he and the Populist movement, the Republican Party, the Tea Party, Libertarians and the Liberty Movement get blamed for the coming deflationary Greater Depression CRASH of 90% of your assets worth.
So, Trumps's populism gets the blaming black spot and (COLLECTIVISTS) Democrats, globalists and progressives win elections in future years as evil totalitarian one world government DICTATORSHIP makes America grate (not great) again.
Not misspelled - I really mean grate and grind in a crushing world deflationary FOURTH TURNING Greater Depression which will be three times as large and last three times longer than the 1930's Great Depression.The world is going to get ground through the wringer as the excrement hits the fan.
If we don't change and make all money backed by gold then runaway inflation could take hold and gold prices could ramp up to $100,000 per ounce. Already, the real quoted price of gold should be set at $10,000 just to make it on par with the world situation circa 2017.
Breaking: Recently, the plot against Trump and the new American civil war thickened when in a show of military might he ordered the launching of 59 cruise missiles against a Syrian airbase in retaliation for a poisonous gas incident. Stupid Trump was duped by this false flag ploy which was likely not done by President Assad forces and in fact was only chlorine gas. Not the super deadly sarin gas. Paul Craig Roberts had this to say about warmonger Trump warmongering and being mislead into committing a war crime by his military advisers like General "Mad Dog" Matis et al who are likely to get us into World War Three and the end of humanity as we know it.
“…Now all his opponents—the Deep State, the military/security complex, the CIA, the Hillary Democrats, the warmonger Republicans—have the New White House Fool under their control. If Trump doesn’t do as they want, they will impeach him for his war crime…” Paul Craig Roberts

The Real Purpose Behind The Russian/Trump Conspiracy Propaganda
Thursday, 22 June 2017 02:02
Just after the US presidential election in 2016 I published an article titled 'Order Out Of Chaos: Defeat Of The Left Comes With A Cost', covering a rather difficult subject matter, namely the concept of “4th Generation Warfare” and how it is used by establishment elitists to defeat popular resistance to their agenda of centralization and globalization. 4th Gen tactics are confusing to many because most people think in terms of single movements and direct correlations; they think that a punch thrown is a punch intended to strike, rather than intended as a feint or misdirection.
I'll put it another way – some people play chess and they only see the attack in front of them. Others play chess and they see the attack three moves ahead. 4th gen warfare is a “three steps ahead” style of fighting that focuses on a very specific goal: Tricking the enemy into destroying himself, or enslaving himself, so that you don't have to take any risks by moving against him directly. That is to say, 4th gen warfare is first and foremost about psychology. That which you see with your eyes is usually not what is actually happening.
For example, when predicting the election win of Donald Trump and the passage of Brexit, I based my conclusions on a 4th gen strategy. According to the behavior and rhetoric of globalists and their organizations at the time, it seemed to me that they were allowing sovereignty and conservative movements to gain a foothold in the political arena. They were letting us THINK that we were winning.
This accomplishes a few things – it takes conservatives off their guard and convinces them to think in terms of defending government rather than overthrowing government. The corruption has not changed, but now we have a vested interest in keeping the system going and attempting to change it “from the inside”. I hope it is clear to the majority of liberty activists today that this is a naive notion.
Conservatives are also now willing to argue in favor of the election system, because many of them think that because Donald Trump “won” the system must be at least partially legitimate. News Flash: Our election system has been fraudulent for decades. The only candidates that ever make it past the DNC and the RNC filters are the candidates the elites WANT the public to choose from.
The American public is also now viciously divided over Trump's ascendance to the White House. The political left has been driven to the point of utter insanity, not that they weren't already stark raving mad to begin with. Conservatives are next to be targeted with psychological manipulation, as the leftist zealotry pushes us towards the other end of the spectrum and a potentially dangerous mindset of rationalizing a totalitarian response. Where extreme social divisions exist, civil unrest and war are not far behind.
Finally, the existing economic and social framework of the US in particular has a finite lifespan. Economic instability is rampant as I noted and evidenced in last week's article, and this has been a process ongoing since the initial 2008 credit and derivatives crisis. The old structure of America is being deliberately torn down to make way for a new structure; a single global edifice in which we are not a nation but a feudal vassal with no ideas of sovereign self determination. That said, the old world cannot be torn down outright. The globalists do not plan to take any blame for the crisis that would inevitably follow. Enter Trump, the perfect scapegoat for the next stage of fiscal collapse, and perhaps a pied piper convincing enough to lure numerous conservative groups into taking the blame as well.
Trump, a seeming enemy of the globalist agenda, takes office, then surrounds himself with the same bankers and globalists he admonished during his campaign. He continues his anti-globalist rhetoric, but his actions tend to help them. Conservatives, desperate for a hero on a white horse to ride in and stop the rushing tide of cultural Marxism, were given one...just not in the manner they were hoping for.In the meantime, the establishment has sought to keep social tensions high. How? The political left has been played like a marionette since the election with a narrative of "Russian conspiracy". You see, hatred is psychologically exhausting. Mobs tend to dissipate and become impotent over time. It is hard to sustain the hatred of a large mass of people without consistent propaganda. Thus, it is important to give people a reason to hate; a reason that fuels perpetual reinforcement. For leftists, the desire to hate Trump runs deep. They think he represents everything that stands in opposition to their ideology, and zealots cannot tolerate the existence of opposing ideals. But there has to be more. The left has to be convinced that Trump is a thief, a thief so heinous that he stole an election with the help of a foreign power.
Now, not only is Trump the anti-christ to leftists, he is also a false president – a pretender to the throne. This narrative is more than enough to keep the left frothing at the mouth for months if not years.As many analysts have pointed out, there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that Trump “stole” the election, let alone colluded with the Russian government to steal the election. Former FBI director James Comey's recent testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee produced nothing; no memos, no paper trail, zip, zilch. The very existence of the “Comey memos” is likely a farce.
But here is where I break with many in the liberty movement – some analysts assume that Trump is being “targeted” and that the goal is to remove him from the White House. This makes little sense to me. If the elites wanted to stop Trump they would have done it during the RNC selection process just as they did to Ron Paul, and just as the DNC did to Bernie Sanders.Clearly, Trump is more valuable to them sitting in the Oval Office, as I outlined above. The Russian circus is going nowhere because it was never meant to go anywhere. It is distraction and drama, a soap opera for the ignorant masses. Trump will not be removed from office. If he does end up impeached, the impeachment will fail. As I have said since before the election, the establishment needs Trump as president.
So, if I am correct and the Russian conspiracy narrative is not intended to take Trump down, what is it intended for? As stated earlier, this is 4th gen warfare, and the intended target for propaganda is not always the obvious target.
As noted, Leftists are the initial target. They will continue to believe that Trump is a Russian collaborator because they want to believe it, regardless of how absurd the whole idea is. They will ignore the fact that there is no evidence to support the accusation. They will embrace the propaganda wholeheartedly and develop more violent methods to express their outrage.The secondary target of the Russian conspiracy manipulation is conservative groups.
Here is the reality of our predicament; the US system is going to move into the next phase of collapse under Trump's watch. Period. The math is undeniable. Every economic indicator except stocks is in severe decline, the Federal Reserve is raising interest rates to deliberately ignite greater instability and time is running out. I believe that this phase will begin before the end of 2017. When the next downturn arrives on the doorstep and in the pocketbooks of the average American, the leftists and most of the world will blame Trump as an “incompetent buffoon” or a “vitriolic fascist”.
Just as the elites need to make Trump and conservatives the best possible scapegoat for the left; they also need a perfect scapegoat for the political right. The narrative will be turned against the leftists and conservatives will exclaim that Trump was not able to reverse economic damages “created by the Obama administration” because leftists used the fake Russian conspiracy as a means to undermine him at every opportunity. Leftists will be labeled economic and political saboteurs, and this accusation will work to a point, because it is partly true.
Finally, as America's decline accelerates, Eastern nations will without a doubt decouple completely from the US dollar as the world reserve currency and begin using the IMF Special Drawing Rights basket structure as a replacement. Russia will most likely lead this charge along with China. Americans will blame Russia in part for the demise of the dollar's buying power around the world. And, the rest of the world will blame the U.S. for the dollar's demise due to U.S. “imperialism” and overt sanctions against Russia. They will say we had it coming.Perhaps you have noticed a particular pattern here? Every piece of the narrative I have outlined has already been initiated, if perhaps only in early-to-mid stages of development. This is an open dialogue common in the mainstream. And in every case, the offered culprit behind the downfall of America is always someone other than the banking elites. Anyone other than the banking elites.Leftists and socialists around the globe will blame Trump and conservative principles. Conservatives will blame the left and their obstructions of Trump. The West will blame the East. Globalists will blame “populists” and nationalists, and nationalists will be scrambling to protect their ground by any means necessary, including unconstitutional measures, which will only help the globalists in the long run.
A core catalyst for this geopolitical blame game is the Trump presidency and the use of the Russian conspiracy to ensure that the left remains crazy, inspiring the right towards extreme measures. Again, this is not about removing Trump, it is about manipulating the left; it is about using the Left's cultural Marxism to trigger an iron-fisted reaction from the political right.In my recent article 'Operation Temperer - U.K. Will Likely Institute Martial Law Measures Within A Year', I warned readers that the UK government has already set in motion martial law measures in response to a growing number of Islamic terrorist attacks. In the US, I think the same march towards totalitarianism will occur, but for reasons beyond foreign terrorism. Economic uncertainty coupled with a volatile left hellbent on supplanting the presidency by any means necessary may very well be exploited by Trump and the elites surrounding him to establish martial law measures in the US. And, I have little doubt that a portion of conservatives will cheer this action.
If this takes place and conservatives come out in majority support, then the globalist use of 4thGen warfare will have succeeded. They will have won. For if conservatives abandon the constitution, then no one will be left to defend the principles and heritage it represents. We will have destroyed ourselves, and the elites will have barely lifted a finger to make this happen. The game can be changed entirely, but only if we are smart enough to recognize the narrative for what it is, and only if we turn our sights on the globalists instead of hyperfocusing on the scapegoats they offer us.

Freemasonic Forces Led By Donald Trump Launch “Soon To Be Deadly” American Coup d'état
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
An astounding, and frankly terrifying, nearly 500 page report prepared for the Security Council (SC) by the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU), Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) and Federal Security Service (FSB) is warning today that the United States can now be classified as undergoing a coup d'état where Freemasonic forces (for the first time in 188 years) led by American billionaire Donald Trump, and aided by secretive elements within both the Sicilian and American mafia, are presently engaged in a “soon to be deadly” all-out battle against the US Federal Reserve System supported “shadow government” currently ruling that nation, and who on its side is being aided by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the La Santa Sede (Vatican/Holy See).
According to this report, in the aftermath of the 2008 global financial collapse caused by the outright systemic corruption emanating from the US Federal Reserve System that infected the entire Western world’s banking system for the benefit of the American “shadow government”, a powerful American-British Freemason cabal arose, headed by Donald Trump, to restore “sanity” into this system in order to, in essence, “save the world from itself”.
Having begun large land purchases in Scotland, this report continues, Donald Trump, in 2010, gathered around him the most powerful Freemasonic force ever seen in modern times in a bid to first save the United Kingdom’s banking system, and, as he envisioned Scotland would soon break away and become an independent nation, the entire world’s economy could then be saved from the Freemason’s new economically impenetrable Scottish stronghold.
In June 2010, this report says, Donald Trump and his Freemason cabal secretly put forth their historic plan to the City of London Corporation—who in turn appointed as their emissary to the Freemasons House of Lords member Baron James of Blackheath.
To understand the full implications of the Freemasons negotiating with the City of London Corporation, this report explains, one must know that the Freemason leadership only communicates with persons having an international security rating possessed by only 6 people, and that the value of their gold bullion holdings is estimated to be worth more than all the gold in the world that has ever been mined.
In his seeing that the US Federal Reserve’s “stranglehold” upon the City of London Corporation was impossible to break, this report continues, Baron James, in November 2010, took to the floor of the House of Lords publically telling his peers of the historic offer being made by the Freemasons (he self called Foundation X) to save Britain first, and then the world—but which failed to sway them leaving this critical historic event virtually unreported; except, or course, our 7 November 2010 report Secretive Knights Templar Make Astounding Bid To Save World.
Though little known among the American people, the GRU had previously reported, Donald Trump’s mother, Mary Anne MacLeod, was born on the Island of Lewis, in Scotland, where she and her Gaelic speaking ancestors were the “caretaker/guardians” of the Callanish Stones many believe to have been erected as geographic “markers” mapping the Knights Templar’s voyages from Europe to America where their vast treasure and documents were hidden before the European discovery of the North American continent in the late 15th century.
Making Donald Trump’s cabal even stronger, this report states, was his joining forces this past week with the head of another powerful Freemasonic faction, New Jersey governor Chris Christie.
Governor Christie, the SVR explains in this report, has been long believed by Federation intelligence sources to be the 6th cousin of Donald Trump through the paternal line of his Scottish born great-grandfather, James H. Christie—whose family, like Donald Trump’s mothers MacLeod line, were also caretakers of the Callanish Stones on the Island of Lewis, and whose father, Wilbur James “Bill” Christie, managed “substantial” Freemason funds during his career at the Bank of New York that was established in 1784 by the American Founding Father and Freemason Alexander Hamilton, until its collapse in the 2007-2008 global banking crisis.
Making Governor Christie’s Freemason faction extremely “deadly and powerful”, too, this report continues, is it’s long association with the American Mafia as his maternal aunt, through an arranged family agreement, was wed to a captain in the Genovese crime family of New Jersey named Tino “The Greek” Fiumara.
Though deliberately obscured in modern American culture today, the SVR in this report explains, it was, in fact, the Freemasons (in 1860 on the eve of the American Civil War) who created the Sicilian Mafia (from which the American Mafia sprang) when the fervently anti-communist and revolutionary Freemasonic leader of Italy, Guiseppi (Giuseppe) Mazzini battled against the Vatican to unite Italy.
And since its creation by the Freemason leader Mazzini, this report continues, the Sicilian Mafia (and its American extension) has operated in “deep secrecy” protecting the global interests of the Freemasons against the equally as ruthless and criminal US Federal Reserve System and its main protector, the CIA—with the mafia making billions from the global drug trade, and the CIA making billions too.
To the ultimate purpose of the Freemason’s creating this global mafia structure to protect itself, the FSB in this report details, centers around the 15 August 1871 letter written from America’s highest ranking Freemason,Albert Pike, to Mazzini warning of the apocalyptic fate the world was facing. Known now as the “Three World War” letter, Pike warned Mazzini about what was being planned against humanity by describing the conflicts to come:
“The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the "agentur" (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.
The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm."
The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam and political Zionism mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…
We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil.
Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.
This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”
Though this “Three World Letter” letter from American Freemason leader Albert Pike to Italian Freemason leader, and mafia founder, Guiseppi Mazzini has been called a hoax on the grounds that in 1871, when it was written, the words “Zionism” and “Fascist” weren’t known, an intriguing FSB addendum to this report notes that the Freemasons have long been known for their “predictive warnings” of future events and the dissemination of them to the public, such as:
1.) The 1898 novella “Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan” describing the sinking of an unsinkable ship when it hit an iceberg, which 14 years later, on 15 April 1915, occurred in reality with the sinking of the RMS Titanic—and with the deaths of the top bankers in America who had been aboard this doomed vessel, and opposed the creation of a central bank, sixteen months later, on 23 September 1913, the US Federal Reserve central bank was created in secret anyway.
2.) The 2001 American television program “The Lone Gunman” who in its pilot episode (March 2001) detailed the crashing into the World Trade Center skyscrapers in New York City of hijacked planes—which six months later, on 11 September, occurred in reality.
An equally intriguing FSB addendum to this reports notes that Donald Trump’s currently ongoing coup d'état against his nations US Federal Reserve supported “shadow government” is not the first, but the second time in US history that the Freemasons have wrested back control from the evils of these central bankers, with it occurring 188 years ago in 1828 and led by the Freemason President Andrew Jackson.
In 1824, the FSB explains, the United States was controlled by the “Virginia presidential dynasty” that had ruled America since its founding in 1776, and after the War of 1812, in order to pay its debts, established a central bank that benefited only the moneyed elite class while driving the rest of this nations into poverty which Andrew Jackson railed against the “paper money” that was causing this to be so.
While winning the majority of States electoral vote (99 vs. 84), the number of States outright (12 vs. 7), and the population vote (41.4% vs. 30.9%), Andrew Jackson, in 1824, had the presidency stolen from him by the House of Representatives.
Four years later, in 1828, Andrew Jackson “mobilized the wrath” of the American people against these elite “money changers”, and aided by his fellow Freemasons, took back control of the US government for its citizens and abolished the central bank these monsters had created doing away with “paper money” and saying to his vanquished foes:
“Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves.”
Like the Freemason Andrew Jackson who was called too crude and unsophisticated to be President, and labeled by his “shadow government” enemies as being a “budding tyrant in the model of Caesar or Napoleon” and who tried to “smoke out his positions” on issues, this report continues, likewise, today, is Freemason Donald Trump, who has become his nations “instrument of class vengeance”, being so accused—including being called “Hitler like” and the elite classes warning that if he wins the Presidency “it would represent a rout of historic proportions for the institutional Republican Party”.
With the “shadow government” having already spent over $220 million trying to defeat Donald Trump and his Freemason cabal so far, and with hundreds-of-millions more being raised to defeat him too, the SVR in this report notes, the “deadliest” event in this historic battle occurred this past Wednesday (24 February) when The New York Times (the official “shadow government” publication) columnist Ross Douthat sent out to his readers the “master plan” to defeat him that cryptically depicted an old “The Dead Zone” movie clip involving the assassination of man running for US President..
Less than 24 hours after this not-to-subtle “shadow government” warning was given to Donald Trump, this report concludes, on 25 February, this Freemason leader had standing by his side in Texas the greatly feared Mafia-Freemason leader Chris Christie—which with both of them now fully committed to destroying Washington D.C. and its elite “money changers” (who now have the Vatican on their side) clearly shows this battle will “be to the death” as the stakes in this coup d'état have reached a level not seen in modern human history—and as best described by Baron James of Blackheath, who two years after having failed in his bid to help the Freemasons, took to the floor of the House of Lords, on 16 February 2012, to warn the world of the massive $15 trillion money-laundering fraud from the US Federal Reserve in the name of “Yohannes Riyadi”…from Indonesia…where President Barack Obama is from.

U.S. Foreign Policy and the Campaign to Destabilize the Trump Presidency
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, January 04, 2017
Obama has formally accused Moscow of interfering in the US elections on behalf of Donald Trump. These are serious allegations. Whereas the sanctions are directed against Russia, the ultimate intent is to undermine the legitimacy of president-elect Donald Trump and his foreign policy stance in relation to Moscow. According to the US media, the sanctions against Moscow were intended to ”Box in President-elect Donald J. Trump” because Trump “has consistently cast doubt” that Putin was involved in the alleged hacking of the DNC. In an earlier report on Kremlin meddling, the NYT (December 15) depicted Donald Trump as “…a Useful Idiot”… an American president who doesn’t know he’s being played by a wily foreign power. (emphasis added)
But the accusations against Trump have gone far beyond the “Box in” Narrative. The unspoken truth pertaining to Obama’s Executive Order is that the punishment was intended for Trump rather than Putin. The objective is not to “Box-In” the president-elect for his “unfamiliarity with the role of intelligence”. Quite the opposite: The strategy is to de-legitimize Donald Trump by accusing him of high treason.
In recent developments, the director of National Intelligence James Clapper has “confirmed” that the alleged Russian cyber-attack constitutes an “existential threat to our way of life”. “Whether or not that constitutes an act of war I think is a very heavy policy call that I don’t believe the intelligence community should make,” said Clapper. That “act of war” policy seems to be have been tacitly endorsed by the outgoing Obama administration: several thousand tanks and US troops are being deployed on Russia’s doorstep as part of Obama’s “Operation Atlantic Resolve” directed against Russia. Are these military deployments part of Obama’s “act of retribution” against Russia in response to Moscow’s alleged hacking of the US elections? Is this a “fast-track” procedure on the part of the outgoing president with the support of US intelligence, intended to create chaos prior to the inception of the Trump administration on January 20th? According to Donbass DINA News: “A Massive US military deployment [on Russia's border] should be ready by January 20.” Political Insanity prevails. And insanity could potentially unleash World War III. Meanwhile none of this is front page news. The mainstream media is not covering it.
Destabilizing the Trump Presidency
The ultimate intent of this campaign led by the Neocons and the Clinton Faction is to destabilize the Trump presidency. Prior to the November 8 elections, former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leo Panetta had already intimated that Trump is a threat to National Security.
According to The Atlantic, Trump is a “Modern Manchurian Candidate” serving the interests of the Kremlin.
Vanity Fair November 1 2016 The Atlantic October 8 2016 In the wake of the Grand Electors’ Vote (in favor of Trump) and Obama’s sanctions against Moscow, the accusations of treason directed against Donald Trump have gone into high gear:
“Liberals are suggesting President-elect Donald Trump is guilty of treason after President Obama announced new sanctions against Russia and Trump praised Vladimir Putin’s response to the sanctions.” (Daily Caller, December 30, 2016)
“A specter of treason hovers over Donald Trump. He has brought it on himself by dismissing a bipartisan call for an investigation of Russia’s hacking of the Democratic National Committee as a “ridiculous” political attack on the legitimacy of his election as president.” (Boston Globe, December 16)
Coordinated Operation to Destabilize the Trump Presidency?
Is Trump “in bed with the enemy”? These are serious accusations allegedly backed up by US intelligence which cannot be brushed away. Will they just be forgotten once Trump accedes to the White House? Unlikely. They are part of a propaganda campaign on behalf of powerful corporate interests. What is at stake is tantamount to a carefully coordinated operation to destabilize the Trump presidency, characterized by several distinct components. The central objective of this project against Trump is to ensure the continuity of the Neocons’ foreign policy agenda geared towards global warfare and Worldwide economic conquest, which has dominated the US political landscape since September 2001. Let us first review the nature of the Neocons’ foreign policy stance.
Background on The Neocons’ Foreign Policy Agenda
In the wake of 9/11, two major shifts in US foreign policy were devised as part of the 2001 National Security Strategy (NSS). The first pertained to the “global war on terrorism” against Al Qaeda, the second introduced the preemptive “defensive war” doctrine. The objective was to present “preemptive military action” –meaning war as an act of “self-defense” against two categories of enemies, “rogue States” and “Islamic terrorists”: “The war against terrorists of global reach is a global enterprise of uncertain duration. …America will act against such emerging threats before they are fully formed.(National Security Strategy, White House, 2002, http://www.whitehouse.gov/nsc/nss.html
The preemptive war doctrine also included the preemptive use of nuclear weapons on a “first strike” basis (as a means of “self-defense”) against both nuclear and non-nuclear states. This concept of a preemptive first strike nuclear attack was firmly endorsed by Hillary Clinton in her election campaign. In turn, the “Global War on Terrorism”(GWOT) launched in the wake of 9/11 has come to play a central role in justifying US-NATO military intervention in the Middle East on “humanitarian grounds” (R2P), including the instatement of so-called “No Fly Zones”. GWOT also constitutes the cornerstone of media propaganda. The military and intelligence dimensions of the Neocons’ project are contained in The Project for the New American Century formulated prior to the accession of George W. Bush to the White House. The PNAC also posits a “Revolution in Military Affairs” requiring a massive budget outlay allocated to the development of advanced weapons systems including a new generation of nuclear weapons.
The PNAC initiative was launched by William Kristol and Robert Kagan whose wife Victoria Nuland, played a key role as Clinton’s Assistant Secretary of State in engineering the Euro-Maidan coup in Ukraine. The Neocon project also includes a menu of “regime change”, “color revolutions”, economic sanctions and macro-economic reforms directed against countries which fail to conform to Washington’s demands. In turn, the globalization of war supports Wall Street’s global economic agenda: The (secretly negotiated) Atlantic and Pacific trade blocks (TPP, TTIP, CETA, TISA), coupled up with IMF- World Bank- WTO “surveillance” are an integral part of this hegemonic project, intimately related to US military and intelligence operations.
“The Deep State” and The Clash of Powerful Corporate Interests
Global capitalism is by no means monolithic. What is at stake are fundamental rivalries within the US establishment marked by the clash between competing corporate factions, each of which is intent upon exerting control over the incoming US presidency. In this regard, Trump is not entirely in the pocket of the lobby groups. As a member of the establishment, he has his own corporate sponsors and fund raisers. His stated foreign policy agenda including his commitment to revise Washington’s relationship with Moscow does not fully conform with the interests of the defence contractors, which supported Clinton’s candidacy. There are powerful corporate interests on both sides, which are now clashing. There are also overlapping allegiances and “cross-cutting alliances” within the corporate establishment. What we are witnessing are ”inter-capitalist rivalries” within the spheres of banking, oil and energy, the military industrial complex, etc. “The Deep State” is profoundly divided. These corporate rivalries are also characterized by strategic divisions and clashes within several agencies of the US State apparatus including the intelligence community and the military. In this regard, the CIA is deeply embedded in the corporate media (CNN, NBC, NYT. WP, etc) which is waging a relentless smear campaign against Trump and his alleged links to Moscow.
But there is also a countervailing campaign within the intelligence community against the dominant Neocon faction. In this regard, the Trump team is contemplating a streamlining of the CIA (aka purges). According to a member of the Trump transition team (quoted by the Wall Street Journal, January 4, 2017), “The view from the Trump team is the intelligence world [is] becoming completely politicized, … They all need to be slimmed down. The focus will be on restructuring the agencies and how they interact.” This project could also affect CIA operatives responsible for propaganda embedded within the mainstream media. This will inevitably create profound divisions and conflicts within the US intelligence apparatus, which could potentially backlash on the Trump presidency.
Continuity in US Foreign Policy? Crafted in the late 1940s by US State Department official George F. Kennan, the “Truman Doctrine” sets the ideological foundations of America’s post-war hegemonic project. What these State department documents reveal is continuity in US foreign policy from “Containment” during the Cold War to today’s post 9/11 doctrine of “Pre-emptive Warfare”. In this regard, the Neocons’ Project for the New American Century’s blueprint (cited above) for global conquest should be viewed as the culmination of a post-war agenda of military hegemony and global economic domination formulated by the State Department in 1948 at the outset of the Cold War. Needless to say, successive Democratic and Republican administrations, from Harry Truman to George W. Bush and Barack Obama have been involved in carrying out this hegemonic blueprint for global domination, which the Pentagon calls the “Long War”. In this regard, the Neocons have followed in the footsteps of the “Truman Doctrine”. In the late 1940's, George F. Kennan called for building a dominant Anglo-American alliance based on “good relations between our country and [the] British Empire”. In today’s world, this alliance largely characterizes the military axis between Washington and London, which plays a dominant role inside NATO to the detriment of Washington’s (continental) European allies. It also includes Canada and Australia as key strategic partners. Of significance, Kennan underscored the importance of preventing the development of continental European powers (e.g. Germany, France, Italy) which could compete with the Anglo-American axis. The objective during the Cold War and its aftermath was to prevent Europe from establishing political as well as economic ties with Russia. In turn, NATO largely dominated by the US has prevented both Germany and France from performing a strategic role in World affairs.
Trump Foreign Policy Realignments
It is highly unlikely that a Trump administration would depart from the mainstay of US foreign policy. While the Trump team is committed to a socially regressive and racist right wing agenda on the domestic front, certain foreign policy realignments are possible including a softening of the sanctions against Russia, which could potentially have an impact on the multi-billion dollar contracts of the military industrial complex. This in itself would be a significant achievement which could contribute to a period of Detente in East-West relations. Moreover, while Trump has put together a right wing cabinet of generals, bankers and oil executives, which largely conforms to the mainstay of the Republican Party, the bi-partisan “entente cordiale” between Democrats and Republicans has been broken. Meanwhile, there are powerful voices within the GOP who are supportive of the “anti-Trump faction”. The divisions between these two competing factions are nonetheless significant. With regard to US foreign policy, they largely pertain to US-Russia bilateral relations which have been jeopardized by the Obama administration as well as to the ongoing US military agenda in Syria and Iraq. They also have a bearing on the European Union, which has been affected by Obama’s economic sanctions against Russia. The sanctions have resulted in a dramatic decline in EU trade and investment with the Russian Federation. In conformity with the “Truman Doctrine” discussed above, US foreign policy under the Neocons, particularly since the 2003 invasion of Iraq, had sought to dismantle the Franco-German alliance and weaken the European Union.
Of relevance in relation to recent developments in Ukraine and Eastern Europe, George F. Kennan explicitly pointed in his 1948 State Department brief, to “a policy of containment of Germany, within Western Europe”. What Kennan’s observations suggest is that the US should be supportive of a European Project only inasmuch as it supports US hegemonic interests. And that is precisely what the Neocons have achieved under the Bush and Obama administrations: “Today both Francois Hollande and Angela Merkel are taking their orders directly from Washington. The 2003 invasion of Iraq was a turning point. The election of pro-US political leaders (President Sarkozy in France and Chancellor Angela Merkel in Germany) was conducive to a weakening of national sovereignty, leading to the demise of the Franco-German alliance. ” (Michel Chossudovsky America’s Blueprint for Global Domination: From “Containment” to “Pre-emptive War”. Global Research, 2014)
The more significant question is whether this realignment under a Trump administration will restrain the deployment of NATO troops and military hardware in Eastern Europe on Russia’s doorstep. Will it be conducive to nuclear disarmament? While Trump’s foreign policy agenda has been the target of “dirty politics” by the Clinton faction, the new administration has powerful corporate backers who will no doubt challenge the Neocons including those operating within the intelligence community. It is worth noting that Trump also has the support of the pro-Israel lobby as well as Israeli intelligence. In December, the head of Mossad met up with the Trump team in Washington.
Timeline of the Destabilization Project
At the outset, prior to the November 8 elections, the project to disrupt and destabilize the Trump presidency consisted of several coordinated and interrelated processes some of which are ongoing while others have already been completed (or are no longer relevant): the media smear campaign against Trump, which has taken on a new slant in the wake of the November 8 elections (ongoing); the engineered anti-Trump protest movement across the US, coordinated with media coverage, petitions, with the objective to disrupt (ongoing); The vote recount in three swing states, (No longer relevant) The passing of H.R 6393: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, which includes a section directed against so-called “pro-Moscow independent media”, in response to Moscow’s alleged interference in the US elections in support of Donald Trump; The Electoral College Vote on December 19 (No longer relevant) The Petition launched by California Sen Barbara Boxers on Change.org pertaining to the electoral College vote (No longer relevant) The ongoing “Disrupt” Campaign intent upon disrupting the January 20, 2017 Presidential Inauguration Ceremony. The possibility of an impeachment procedure is already contemplated during the first year of his mandate.
The Catch Phrase is “Disrupt”. The Objective is “Disrupt”
In turn, the Disruptj20.org website is calling for the disruption of the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017: #DisruptJ20 is supported by the work of the DC Welcoming Committee, a collective of experienced local activists and out-of-work gravediggers acting with national support. We’re building the framework needed for mass protests to shut down the inauguration of Donald Trump and planning widespread direct actions to make that happen. We’re also providing services like housing, food, and even legal assistance to anyone who wants to join us.
What are the Possible Outcomes?
The propaganda campaign together with the other components of this operation (protest movement, anti-Trump petitions, etc) are used as a means to discredit an elected-president. This media propaganda campaign against an incoming president is unprecedented in US history. While the MSM routinely criticize politicians in high office including the president of the US, the media narrative in this case is fundamentally different. The incoming president is the target of an organized media smear campaign which will not subside upon Trump’s accession to the White House. Concurrently, an engineered and coordinated protest movement against Trump has been ongoing since November 8. In fact it started on the evening of November 8 prior to the announcement of the election results. The protests have all the appearances of a “color revolution” style op. The media also provides a biased coverage of the engineered protest movement. The organizers and recruiters are serving the interests of powerful corporate lobby groups including the defence contractors. They are not serving the interests of the American people It is unlikely that these various initiatives including the Disrupt campaign will have a significant bearing on Trump’s inauguration. Our assessment suggests, however, that the president-elect will accede to the White House amidst an aura of controversy.
Impeachment is the “Talking Point”
The propaganda campaign will continue in the wake of Trump’s inauguration intimating accusations of treason. The impeachment of Donald Trump has already contemplated, prior to his accession to the presidency. In the words of the Huffington Post (January 1, 2017): “There is only one constitutional way to remove a president, and that is via impeachment. What’s needed is a citizens’ impeachment inquiry, to begin on Trump’s first day in office. The inquiry should keep a running dossier, and forward updates at least weekly to the House Judiciary Committee. There will be no lack of evidence.” Change.org which organizes the engineered protest movement has launched a petition to impeach Trump: Change.org petition campaign Boston Globe, December 16, 2016 Huffington Post, December 26, 2016
The American People are the Unspoken Victims: The Need for A Real Mass Movement
The American people are the unspoken victims of this clash between competing capitalist factions. Both factions are serving the interests of the elites to the detriment of the US electorate. In turn, meaningful real grassroots opposition to Trump’s right-wing racist social policy agenda has been “kidnapped” by an engineered protest movement financed and controlled by powerful economic interests. The organizers of this movement are acting on behalf of powerful elite interests. People are misled. What is required in the months ahead is that the development of “real” social movements against the new Trump administration with regard to broad social and economic issues, civil rights, health care, job creation, environmental issues, foreign policy and US led wars, defense expenditure, immigration, etc. Independent grassroots movements must consequently be divorced from the engineered protests backed and financed (directly or indirectly) by corporate interests. This is no easy task. The funding and “manufacturing of dissent”, the manipulation of social movements, etc. are firmly entrenched. Ironically, neoliberalism finances activism directed against neoliberalism. “Manufacturing dissent” is characterized by a manipulative environment, a process of arm-twisting and subtle co-optation of individuals within progressive organizations, including anti-war coalitions, environmentalists and the anti-globalization movement.
“Co-optation is not limited to buying the favors of politicians. The economic elites –which control major foundations– also oversee the funding of numerous NGOs and civil society organizations, which historically have been involved in the protest movement against the established economic and social order.” (Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research, September 20, 2010)
Is America gearing Towards a Deep-seated Constitutional Crisis
At this stage it is difficult to predict what will happen under a Trump administration. What seems abundantly clear, however, is that America is gearing towards a deep-seated political crisis, with major social, economic and geopolitical ramifications. Is the tendency (at some future date) towards the adoption of martial law and the suspension of constitutional government?

Historic Increase of US Military Budget: Trump Boosts Most Wasteful Department, Reduces All Others
By Eric Zuesse
February 28, 2017
On February 27th, Reuters headlined “Trump seeks ‘historic’ increase of 9 percent in U.S. military’s budget” and reported that “Trump will ask Congress to boost Pentagon spending in the next fiscal year by $54 billion in his first budget proposal and slash the same amount from non-defense spending.”
The U.S. Department of Defense is one of the 15 U.S. Cabinet departments, the others being: State, Treasury, Justice, Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, Energy, Education, Veterans Affairs (which is entirely ‘Defense’-related and so their budget is actually an essential part of America’s military expenditures), and Homeland Security (which is another essential military expenditure).
In addition, there are 16 intelligence agencies within a federal “black budget,” whose combined expenditure, when that was reported by the BBC headlining on 30 August 2013 “US intelligence agencies’ ‘black budget’ detailed”, was “$52.6 bn in total for 16 intelligence agencies, according to the files” that had been “disclosed by leaker Edward Snowden.” As the Washington Post had first reported it the prior day: “The $52.6 billion ‘black budget’ for fiscal 2013, obtained by The Washington Post from former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden, maps a bureaucratic and operational landscape that has never been subject to public scrutiny. Although the government has annually released its overall level of intelligence spending since 2007, it has not divulged how it uses the money or how it performs against the goals set by the president and Congress.” In addition, there was reported “a separate $23 billion devoted to intelligence programs that more directly support the U.S. military.” So, a grand total spent on ‘intelligence’ in that year was $75.6 billion. And, actually, none of it has “been subject to public scrutiny.” ‘Defense’ and ‘intelligence’ are the only portions of the U.S. federal budget that have never “been subject to public scrutiny,” as will here be explained.
On Tuesday, 13 May 2014, Stars and Stripes banner-ed “Decades later, military still unable to account for its spending” and reported: The military is still running behind in its decades-long quest to audit its spending and rein in waste, Department of Defense comptrollers testified Tuesday to the Senate.Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps financial managers will be unable to fully meet a midpoint deadline set by the secretary of defense this year for mandated accounting benchmarks. Meanwhile, “serious continuing deficiencies” remain in the accounting efforts, according to a Government Accountability Office report issued Tuesday.
Nearly three decades after U.S. taxpayers gasped over $640 toilet seats and other Cold War military waste, the Department of Defense remains the last federal department still unable to conduct a financial audit despite laws passed in the 1990s that require the accounting.
Trillions of dollars are being poured down, into ‘Defense’ (including aggression such as the invasions of Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc.) and into ‘intelligence’ (including the false ‘intelligence’ that was used to ‘justify’ those invasions), and yet none of it is at all accountable to the public; it’s merely being paid to U.S. corporations by the ‘representatives of the public’, and will now soar even more, while everything else (supposedly except Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid) will get slashed, as being what supporters of the military-industrial complex call “waste, fraud, and abuse” in all Departments but their own. (They never call ‘defense’ and ‘intelligence’ expenditures that.)
On 26 July 2016, the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Defense issued its study, “Army General Fund Adjustments Not Adequately Documented or Supported”, and reported: We determined whether adjustments made to Army General Fund (AGF) data during the FY 2015 financial statement compilation process were adequately documented and supported. … The Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Financial Management & Comptroller) (OASA[FM&C]) and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service Indianapolis (DFAS Indianapolis) did not adequately support $2.8 trillion in third quarter journal voucher (JV) adjustments and $6.5 trillion in yearend JV adjustments1 made to AGF data during FY 2015 financial statement compilation. … In addition, DFAS Indianapolis did not document or support why the Defense Departmental Reporting System‑Budgetary (DDRS-B), a budgetary reporting system, removed at least 16,513 of 1.3 million records during third quarter FY 2015. … As a result, the data used to prepare the FY 2015 AGF third quarter and yearend financial statements were unreliable and lacked an adequate audit trail. Furthermore, DoD and Army managers could not rely on the data in their accounting systems when making management and resource decisions.
The present reporter had headlined little more than a month ago on January 15th, “The Thorniest Policy-Question That President Trump Will Face”, and I opened: A decision must be made at the start of Donald Trump’s Presidency on one issue, which will shape both his foreign and domestic policies, and so his entire Presidency.
Mark Strauss, the Editor of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, headlined on 8 September 2014, “Nukes Are Cannibalizing The U.S. Defense Budget”, and he raised the question of why nuclear forces are “cannibalizing the U.S. defense budget” now decades after the end of the Soviet Union and of its Warsaw Pact military alliance and its communist dictatorial ideology.
No American President will be able significantly to improve the U.S. economy who fails to reverse this cannibalization by U.S. nuclear-forces advocates and contractors (who get trillions of dollars from this nuclear-weapons business).
President Trump has made his decision on this. He will be spending vastly more on America’s nuclear bombs and bombers, in his promised ‘war against radical Islamic terrorism’; and yet, supposedly, he’s on the anti-terrorist side of that war, the same side of it as is Russia, who is obviously his real target (where else are our nuclear forces targeted?), now that he has actually won the White House. Some people call him ‘Putin’s puppet’, but is Trump actually the military-industrial complex’s puppet? Was he fooling us, all along, to trust his saying that he wanted to cooperate with Russia instead of to target Russia? Are we already not wasting too much on ‘Defense’?
Osama bin Laden’s former bag-man who personally collected every one of the million dollar-plus cash donations that funded Al Qaeda, said “without the money of the — of the Saudi — you will have nothing” of Al Qaeda. He named among those donors from whom he had picked up such a cash donation, Prince Bandar bin Sultan al-Saud, the Saud family’s Ambassador to the U.S. on 9/11, whom the ‘missing 28 pages’ in the official 9/11 report documented had been regularly paying tens of thousands of dollars personally to at least two of the 15 Saudis who were among the nineteen 9/11 terrorists, and yet President Trump is targeting Russia’s ally Iran — the Sauds’ foe — as being the source of that problem — Trump agrees with Obama on that, which also isn’t what seemed to have been Trump’s views prior to the November 8th election.
So, this is why the non-‘defense’ half of the U.S. government will need to be cut by around 9% — it’s where the ‘waste, fraud, and abuse’ is in the federal budget, even though the ‘Defense’ Department is the only one of the 15 federal Departments that cannot even be audited.Donald Trump’s Presidency is now set clearly onto its path. Whatever else happens now cannot change the course of his Presidency. Finally, the answer is clear as to whether he will be a great President, a mediocre President, or an atrocious President. He is finally committed, publicly, to his path.
And, on February 25th, the Democratic Party also committed itself finally, to whether it is on the path that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama had established, or instead on the path that Bernie Sanders had been trying to establish.
Finally, things are clear, about the path that America is on. It’s on the Sauds’ path.

President Trump - The Trap is Set
17.Jan.2017 | SCG
The Trump years are going to be crazier than you think.
Most of the world (the political left in particular) was blindsided by the results of the 2016 election.
To say that some are having a hard time coming to terms with the words "President Trump" and what the next 4 to 8 years will bring, would be an understatement.
Those who told you that a Trump presidency was impossible were quick to remix their pre-election narratives, framing the Donald as something of a Hitler 2.0 and attempting to position themselves as leaders of a new resistance. Self reflection is still off the table.
On the other end of the spectrum you have those who took Trump's promises at face value, and who actually believe he will make America great again, proclaiming the dawn of a new age of conservatism, as the stock market rose to record highs (before he actually took office).
Both sides are utterly unprepared for what's coming.Let's just cut to the chase.
Is Trump going to usher in a new era of prosperity and innovation,
or is he going to be the one standing in the center ring when the circus tent comes down?
Remember some voted for Trump as political molotov cocktail.
"Trump is a business man" you say, "he's going to make things happen".
Cut taxes, cut regulation, invest a trillion dollars in infrastructure (including a ginourmous wall),
punish companies that move factories overseas,
rebuild the military,
restore relations with Russia,
start a trade war with China.
And you know a new arms race would create jobs.
There's a lot to unpack there, and those are debates worth having, however much of this hinges on a variable that Trump doesn't control: the Federal Reserve.The Federal Reserve has held interest rates near zero for close to a decade.
They also engaged in quantitative easing from 2009 to 2014, accumulating 4.5 trillion dollars worth of mortgage backed securities and treasury notes (they are still holding those assets by the way). This inflated stock and bond market bubbles of historic proportions.
When a friendly face is in the white House, crashes are typically attributed to a war, a terrorist attack or some other external variable (for example 9/11, which masked the unravelling of the tech bubble in 2001). The Trump administration, however, is an excuse in and of itself.
Word is the Fed is leaning towards increasing interest rates aggressively in 2017, and may engage in anti-inflationary measures to offset Trump's infrastructure stimulus plans. That means that the flow of money and credit is about to be tightened. It also means the Fed is setting itself up for a showdown.
If Trump plays by the rules, he will have to wait until 2018 to replace Janet Yellen.
A lot can happen within that timeframe.Trump's personality is a wildcard.
He's impulsive. He fights dirty, and he fights to win (he also happens to have a history with organized crime).
If Trump goes to war with the Federal Reserve this this could get out of hand in ways that most can't even imagine (especially when geopolitics are factored in).
As a result the U.S. dollar's position as the world reserve currency is going to be in play.
Add to that backdrop a little social unrest on the domestic front.
If recent history serves as any indicator, we can count on seeing some kind of racially charged flash point involving the police during the Trump administration (probably before 2017 is over).It's also fairly safe to say (given recent history) that some of these protests will turn violent and destructive.
The trend has been towards escalation.
Having Trump in charge will take this to a new level.Trump ran on a platform of "law and order" and support for the police, which piggy backed on the perception that Obama was undermining law enforcement during his term (in spite of the fact that Obama greatly accelerated the militarization of the police). Just the belief that Trump has their back, is going to influence the police response. They're going to be more confident, more aggressive, and if Trump offers even so much as a word of encouragement, they will go into full crackdown mode (which would of course throw gasoline on a fire).
These tensions have the potential of spinning out of control, especially in the context of an economic downturn, and again Trump's personality is wildcard.Trump is also about to inherit (thanks to Obama and Bush) the most extensive and technologically advanced surveillance apparatus world has ever seen (Obama expanded the NSA's powers even after Trump won by the way), the power to order extrajudicial assassinations anywhere in the world, and a military which has been authorized (by the NDAA) to detain anyone, anywhere (including U.S. citizens) indefinitely without trial.
To top it off, Trump is filling his administration with former generals. Some with combat and counter insurgency experience. He has everything he needs to implement a full fledged military dictatorship, and the left has no one to blame but themselves.
Trump did not, however, start off on a good foot with the alphabet soup agencies.
He has an enemy contingent in the deep state which wants to take him down, and has the means to do it.
Replacing upper management won't be enough to neutralize this threat. These agencies have black budgets, and off the books programs that defy accountability, and lot's of experience toppling upstart regimes. Failure reign them in could be fatal.
The most important trap however, will be on the geopolitical front.
Years of backing Sunni jihadist in Syria failed to unseat Assad, and Trump has vowed to reverse U.S. policy.
Israel was openly supporting the Sunni axis. They wanted a full frontal regime change in both Syria and Iran for many years, but the Obama administration tied their hands. Then Russia stepped in, tipped the balance, and the Shiite Crescent not only survived, but grew stronger.
Israeli/Sunni axis needs another path to war so they're changing tack.On January 13th, 2017, just 7 days from the inauguration, Israel bombed a Syrian government airport.This provides a glimpse of the years to come. Israel's strategy is simple: provoke Syria and or Iran until one of them retaliates... which would of course provide cover to take territory. Turkey is likely to make another move in Iraq and or Syria as well (Turkey has ambitions to expand its borders as well), while the Saudis continue bombing Yemen to rubble (with U.S. government support).Israel feels confident that Trump will defend them at all costs.
Indeed he has given this impression, but will he take the bait?
Here Russia is a wildcard.What happens if Russia moves quickly to provide Syria and Iran with the means of defending themselves?
What happens when Putin and Netanyahu are competing for Trump's ear?
With all the other variables in play will Trump even have the means to influence the outcome in this region?
Expect alliances in the Middle East to shift rapidly during the Trump years, with unexpected consequences.
In particular watch for a play on oil that undermines the petrodollar.Making America great again was never on the menu.
Trump wasn't supposed to win. He was supposed to be the decoy. This was reality television does politics, literally.
The Democrats thought he was so bad that he would take attention off of Hillary's baggage.
So the Clinton campaign pulled strings with their friends in the media to help him in the primaries.
We know this thanks to the John Podesta email leaks.
"We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates [Trump, Cruz, Carson] so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to [take] them seriously,”
The DNC (and their corporate media lackeys) then worked to marginalize the Bernie Sanders campaign,
and used a secret agreement backed by "leverage" to prevent him from attacking Clinton.
This was confirmed by the DNC email leaks.Oops!
You can't un-throw a molotov cocktail.
So get your popcorn, and buckle up (or leave the United States if you were planning to).
The show is about to begin.
The Donald and The Deep State
September 3, 2016
For his myriad faults, it’s easy to see why Donald Trump’s anti-Globalist rhetoric has stricken a chord with the American electorate. His vocal opposition to Neo-mercantile trade deals, his rhetorical rejection of “Sustainable Development” on the world stage; The Donald is doubtlessly a captivating figure to the dispossessed, downtrodden American voter seeking something – anything – to halt the ravages wrought by World Order Machiavellians.
If nothing else, watching Trump’s bombast single-handedly stymie a potential continuation of the Bush Crime Family Dynasty (to the ire of Neocons everywhere) has made for fantastic entertainment. Watching as a similar fate befalls the Clinton Syndicate, whose war crimes, Nation-State destroying “charitable” frauds, drug and arms-running accolades and ever-increasing body count deserve open scrutiny, has also made for a good bit of fun.
Perhaps the most satisfying aspect of this public airing of Bush/Clinton dirty laundry is that, in many cases, the two share more than a few articles of clothing. Both, through the Clinton Foundation, are complicit in looting the nation of Haiti and “disappearing” millions in charitable donations for earthquake relief – a fraud that preceded the United Nations’ introduction of a deadly outbreak of cholera on the island. Both, too, gained a significant amount of (deep) political prestige and economic clout from the CIA drug trade – as Vice President during the cocaine-fueled 1980's, Bush the Elder is as complicit in the Iran-Contra drug trade as anyone alive. And as then-Governor of Arkansas, home of the Agency’s infamous Mena, AK “drug drop” operation, Bill Clinton may as well have been a Regional Director of Cocaine, Inc. Tracing this interlocking web of serial political criminals is one of the best methods we have of demonstrating the pervasive racket of oligarchy that rules America (and the world) today. The stunning and informative artwork of the late Mark Lombardi, outlining the connections of banking, political, and drug trade interests, is a stark reminder of how truly intertwined the network of the Deep State truly is:
All this, however, begs questions: Can any political figure be as successful in the Two-Party Racket as The Donald has been without being connected to this web of Deep State actors? As a product of the “go-go, Greed is Good” ’80s, is Trump’s fortune connected to the drug and arms dealers of the Iran-Contra/BCCI/S&L scandals also synonymous with the era? And if so, have such connections continued through to the present? What consummate insiders of the Anglo-American Establishment have Trump’s ear, and what does this spell for his rousing “anti-Globalist” rhetoric coming to fruition?
The Donald and the Deep State Drug Traders
It is no exaggeration to say that the Bush and Clinton empires have been built, in large part, on the backs of the drug trade. This knowledge within the broader conspiracy culture has been widely circulated since at least the release of the 1995 underground hit, The Mena Connection:
Given the sheer nature and scope of the Deep State drug and arms trade, perhaps it is not surprising to find that Mr. Trump has his fair share of connections to its players – and not insignificant ones, at that. A great deal of work in unearthing these relationships has been done by investigative journalist Daniel Hopsicker, best known for his documentaries and books on the CIA drug trade as well as the 9/11 Venice, Florida coverup. A seasoned sleuth in his own right, Hopsicker has recently documented a longstanding relationship between Donald Trump and a number of Deep State actors, like CIA asset Meyer Lansky’s partner, Louis Lesser, who Trump purchased the Taj Mahal Casino and Hotel from in Atlantic City.
Another of these characters is known CIA asset and Saudi arms dealer, Adnan Khashoggi, a man whose connections to the Iran-Contra affair and the Deep State at large are far beyond the scope of this article.In his post entitled, “Donald Trump and the Palm Beach Homies,” it is alleged that Trump purchased Adnan Khashoggi’s yacht, at the time the longest in the world, in the mid-’90s from the cash-strapped, scandal-ridden Saudi “Man of Mystery.” Khashoggi is also said to have attended The Donald’s most recent wedding, neither of which are damning connections in and of themselves; they do, however, demonstrate a friendly relationship.The most concrete evidence escalating their relationship from casual acquaintances to potential partners in crime, however, comes from a local Palm Beach source. Hopsicker says in a recent interview:
“I have information from a source over in Palm Beach that when Adnan Khashoggi was under indictment for ripping off the second largest bank in Thailand, and INTERPOL was searching for him, he was hiding out in a bungalow at Mar-a-Lago.” (One of Donald Trump’s real estate developments in Palm Beach.)-Daniel Hopsicker
Being friends with a spook is one thing – helping said spook to avoid detection in the wake of yet another “Too Big to Jail” bankster looting of the developing world is something else entirely.
Khashoggi isn’t the only Deep State actor in the Palm Beach milieu connected to Trump – take, for example, billionaire Carl Icahn, who Trump has mused about making Secretary of Treasury in his potential administration. Icahn, who is also an associate of Khashoggi, is known to Florida locals for his “investment” in a St. Petersburg airline whose only product “turned out to be 5.5 tons of cocaine busted on a company plane,” as Hopsicker puts it.
Trump’s connections to international intelligentsia’s drug trade go beyond even the figures mentioned in the aforementioned Hopsicker article; when The Donald proclaimed earlier this year that Richard Haas, long-time President of the Council on Foreign Relations, was one of the few men that he “really likes and respects,” I began in earnest looking for more associative connections between Trump and the Anglo-American Establishment.
While the majority of the Mainstream Media has seen fit to paint Trump as a pariah within the Silicon Valley community, at least some of its powerbrokers, its true movers and shakers, find themselves in Trump’s camp. One such character of prominence is Peter Thiel, a founding member of the aptly-named “PayPal Mafia” and witting CIA cybersecurity subcontractor. A vocal Trump supporter who was given a prime speaking slot at this year’s Republican Convention, most were keen on focusing solely upon superficial banalities like Thiel’s sexual preferences.
Far more important are the multinational giants he’s built over the years, foremost of which is PayPal. Already suspected to be complicit in colluding with NSA, it’s almost inconceivable to think that one of the largest payment processors in the world isn’t also involved in drug trade money laundering.Evidence for this claim comes from HSBC whistleblower John Cruz. As a British bank established in Hong Kong for the express intent of handling profits from the burgeoning opium trade, Mr. Cruz’s former employers are hardly strangers to the drug game. They also prove to be a bit of a one-trick pony, as their documented cooperation in laundering the dirty cash of Mexican drug lords proves that not much has changed about HSBC’s business model in over a century.In a video interview interview with Richard Grove of Tragedy and Hope, Cruz outlines how Thiel’s PayPal finds its way into HSBC’s drug kingdom:Richard Grove: What in your daily work did you start seeing and what started to raise your awareness?John Cruz: I would see other accounts [under the same Social Security number] beyond the accounts of an individual listed as “Unidentified.” And I would see hundreds, millions, billions, trillions of dollars going through these accounts around the world. And they would just say, “money to, money from,” “transfer in, transfer out.”
And they were just not complete as far as what the money was from. Then you couldn’t find out where the money was coming from, you couldn’t find out where it was going to… you had money going in and out of PayPal and American Express every day in denominations, I mean, on your account alone you could have millions going through PayPal and American Express in 20, 30, 40, 50, 100,000 dollar denominations, even numbers, every day. But you as the main account holder, in your main accounts, could not see this because they’re coded not to print statements. Not to have access to. And they’re labeled as “Unidentified.”
So when you see an account with a billion dollars going through it in one day and you have hundreds of thousands of Social Security numbers attached to that one account? Very suspicious.
Very suspicious, indeed. I’d highly recommend the curious reader listen to the entire interview linked above – but to contrast this network of associations with The Donald himself, one is forced to question if Trump’s rhetoric about drugs and “building a Great Wall” are less about stopping their flow and more about ensuring that only those with DC9s and C130s make their way safely to American markets:
“We are going to build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities.”-Donald Trump
The Donald and the Transhuman Technocrats
Peter Thiel is not your average Silicon Valley tycoon; his belief, his faith, in the technostructure borders on the religious. Admittedly, the odds of finding someone working in tech who’s not an ardent futurist are increasingly low – but Peter Thiel is a man who believes he can literally cheat death and live forever. He’s not merely a technocrat, he is a transhumanist, and a devout one at that.
Thiel also self-identifies as a “libertarian,” a strange choice of words for a man whose company, Palantir, is perhaps one of the most heavily government-subsidized cybersecurity contractors on the planet. It’s also no secret that, in addition to a cast of dubious hedge fund managers, Palantir’s largest .gov financier is none other than In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital firm. Quite a large degree of hypocrisy from a man who said in a 2014 Wall Street Journal Op-Ed,
“I’m not interested in illegal bullies or government favorites: By ‘monopoly,’ I mean the kind of company that is so good at what it does that no other firm can offer a close substitute.”-Peter Thiel
Really, now? Are government favorites like PayPal, operating on the SWIFT and Fed Wire systems, exempt from this definition? Or government favorites like Palantir, who are paid massive sums of looted taxpayer dollars to build software that tracks, traces, and surveils the very populace that unwittingly funds it? Thiel’s true character, nothing short of a vulture, is demonstrated in the same op-ed when he “upgrades” the age-old quote from John D. Rockefeller who famously said, “Competition is a sin.”
Thiel’s 21st Century equivalent:
“Competition is for losers. If you want to create and capture lasting value, look to build a monopoly.”-Peter Thiel
Transhumanism, monopoly, and the worst of crony capitalism? A dangerous combination, especially in a man who seems to conjure up the worst elements of Science Fiction in the companies he touches. Also a dangerous man to have anywhere near the levers of power, but given Thiel’s entrenched nature within the “Cybersecurity State,” he will inevitably play a role in The Donald’s administration – to the bane of real libertarians the world over.
But the “PayPal Mafia” Don is hardly the only individual with trans-human ideals who The Donald keeps close. As the officially “unofficial” Trump spokesman, consummate insider and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is doubtlessly gunning for a potential Trump Cabinet position. Gingrich has said of Trump, “He’s not them. He’s not part of the club. He hasn’t been through the Initiation Rites, he doesn’t belong to the Secret Society.”
The same, of course, cannot be said of Gingrich himself, as he is among the more high-profile attendees of the Bohemian Grove. Newt doesn’t limit his involvement with the “Mystery Schools” to Germanic festivities in Northern California, though; he is something of a priest in the modern mystery school of trans-humanism, having co-authored the infamous NBIC Report and personally coined the term, “The Age of Transitions.”
“While American science and technology benefit the entire world, it is vital to recognize that technological superiority is the fundamental basis of the economic prosperity and national security of the United States. We are in an Age of Transitions, when we must move forward if we are not to fall behind, and we must be ready to chart a course forward through constantly shifting seas and winds. Organizations of all kinds, including government itself, must become agile, reinventing themselves frequently while having the wisdom to know which values are fundamental and must be preserved.”-Newt Gingrich
Newt Gingrich’s segment of the NBIC Report is a fascinating read – and not just for what it sees for the future, nor simply in outlining Newt’s own feelings on the “Age of Transitions,” but in demonstrating the breadcrumbs of suppressed history that have lead us to this point. Gingrich aptly opens his dialogue by mentioning Vannevar Bush, inventor of MEMEX and the precursor to the modern multimedia age.
For more on the trans-human gambit and Newt Gingrich’s role in it, there is an excellent documentary by filmmaker Aaron Franz on the topic:
Regardless of who is (s)elected as the next President of the United States, the next administration will oversee vast changes to Internet infrastructure (and the Pan-opticon it supports). Be it the handover of DNS from America to the U.N., net neutrality, or the draconian “Internet of Things” and “Smart Grid,” the barrel of Techno-feudalism’s gun is quickly finding itself turned on humanity at large, if it hasn’t been aimed in that direction all along.
With people like Thiel and Gingrich gearing up to spearhead a “Technological Trump” administration, disarming the State from the top-down in this regard seems an increasingly unlikely outcome.
Or were you really under the impression that we could “Make America Great Again” and restore manufacturing without robots, automation, and artificial intelligence?
Make America What, Again?
Regardless of how one feels about Donald Trump, his numerous connections with the Deep State and key actors within it are utterly undeniable. Whether they are utterly indefensible is ultimately left to the reader. But the primary sources and interlocks outlined throughout this article aren’t merely “guilt by association.” This is how the intelligence community itself maps out potential “threat vectors” when tracking their own targets:
“People use human networks to organize the control of resources and geography. No person alone can control anything of significance. Presidents, drug lords and CEOs rely on people to execute their strategies and are constrained by the capabilities and interests of the people who work for them. Identifying these networks may be a daunting task depending on the network. For obvious reasons, criminal organizations and militant networks strive to keep their membership secret, and it is not always apparent who gives the orders and who carries out the orders in a political body. To discern who’s who in a group, and therefore whether an individual matters in a group, requires both intelligence and analysis to make sense of the intelligence.”–Stratfor
Admittedly, the network outlined herein is a rudimentary one and requires more fleshing out. But for all his “anti-Globalist, Amerika First” rhetoric, Donald Trump finds himself at the center of two key Globalist enterprises: The Deep State drug trade and the Technofeudal State’s transhuman gambit. While The Donald has done a masterful job in dressing himself up as antithetical to these interests, an Administration is not just a President – it’s the support network of the seemingly immortal Deep State actors that supports them.
And Donald Trump is most certainly from the network. But is he for the network?
In this author’s mind, Donald’s Deep State connections belie three potential scenarios:Donald Trump is analogous to the John F./Joe Kennedy complex before him.
1. He may be supported by a criminal enterprise and surrounded by unsavory characters, the Deep State may have leverage over him, but he ultimately has a “Good Heart” and seeks genuine change despite the uphill battle.
2. Donald Trump is a Deep State actor from a competing group of insiders, putting pressure on the “Old Order” crowd of the Bush/Clinton Cartel in making way for the “New Multipolar World Order” now emerging.
3. Donald Trump is a Deep State actor running solely for the aims of the Deep State itself. He is a part of it, complicit in it, and whether he wins or loses is immaterial to the greater objectives of World Order.
I’m a cynical sod with this crazy belief that only individuals working in concert with other individuals of their own free will can ever change Humanity’s current predicament, and thus, lean heavily towards Options #2 and #3. But for those starry-eyed dreamers who place their faith in the God of the State, here’s to hoping that your next King of choice does not become a sacrificial one.

How the Trump regime was manufactured by a war inside the Deep State. A systemic crisis in the global Deep System has driven the violent radicalization of a Deep State faction.
By Nafeez Ahmed
President Donald Trump is not fighting a war on the establishment: he’s fighting a war to protect the establishment from itself, and the rest of us.
At first glance, this isn’t obvious. Among his first actions upon taking office, Trump vetoed the Trans Pacific Partnership, the controversial free trade agreement which critics rightly said would lead to US job losses while giving transnational corporations massive power over national state policies on health, education and other issues.
Trump further plans to ditch the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the EU and US, which would have diluted key state regulations on the activities of transnational cortorations on issues like food safety, the environment and banking; and to renegotiate NAFTA, potentially heightening tensions with Canada.
Trump appears to be in conflict with the bulk of the US intelligence community, and is actively seeking to restructure the government to minimize checks and balances, and thus consolidate his executive power.
His chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has completely restructured the National Security Council under unilateral presidential authority. While Bannon and his Chief of Staff Richard ‘Reince’ Priebus now have permanent seats on the NSC’s Principals’ Committee, the Director of National Intelligence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff are barred from meetings except when requested for their expertise. The Secretary of Energy and US ambassador to the UN have been expelled entirely.
Trump’s White House has purged almost the entire senior staff of the State Department, and tested the loyalty of the Department of Homeland Security with its new ‘Muslim ban’ order.So what is going on? One approach to framing the Trump movement comes from Jordan Greenhall, who sees it as a conservative (“Red Religion”) Insurgency against the liberal (“Blue Church”) Globalist establishment (the “Deep State”). Greenhall suggests, essentially, that Trump is leading a nationalist coup against corporate neoliberal globalization using new tactics of “collective intelligence” by which to outsmart and out-speed his liberal establishment opponents.
But at best this is an extremely partial picture.In reality, Trump has ushered in something far more dangerous:
The Trump regime is not operating outside the Deep State, but mobilizing elements within it to dominate and strengthen it for a new mission.
The Trump regime is not acting to overturn the establishment, but to consolidate it against a perceived crisis of a wider transnational Deep System.
The Trump regime is not a conservative insurgency against the liberal establishment, but an act of ideologically constructing the current crisis as a conservative-liberal battleground, led by a particularly radicalized white nationalist faction of a global elite.
The act is a direct product of a global systemic crisis, but is a short-sighted and ill-conceived reaction, pre-occupied with surface symptoms of that crisis. Unfortunately, those hoping to resist the Trump reaction also fail to understand the system dynamics of the crisis.
All this can only be understood when we look at the big picture. That means the following: we must look a little more closely at the individuals inside Trump’s administration, the wider social and institutional networks they represent, and what emerges from their being interlocked in government; we must contextualize this against two factors, the escalation of global systemic crisis, and the Trump regime’s ideological framing(s) of that crisis (both for themselves, and for public consumption); we must connect this with the impact on the transnational Deep System, and how that links up with the US Deep State; and we must then explore what this all means in terms of the scope of actions likely to be deployed by the Trump regime to pursue its discernible goals.
This investigation will help to establish a ground state for anyone on which to build a meaningful strategy of response that accounts for the full systemic complexity of our Trumpian moment.
So the first step to diagnosing our Trumpian moment is to see who is leading it. We’ll begin by looking at a cross-section of some of Trump’s most prominent nominations and appointments.
1. The Trump regime
If all Trump’s appointees are confirmed, his administration will be among the most business-heavy, corporate-friendly governments in American history.Five of the 15 people nominated by Trump as Cabinet secretaries have no public sector experience, and have spent their entire careers in the corporate sector. “That would be more business people with no public-sector experience than have ever served in the Cabinet at any one time,”, concludes Pew Research Center.
Betsy DeVos has been nominated for Education Secretary. She’s a billionaire married to the Amway conglomerate.Andrew Puzder has been nominated as Labor Secretary. He’s a billionaire CEO of fast food chain owner CKE Restaurants.Trump’s nominee for Commerce Secretary is Wall Street veteran Wilbur Ross. He’s a billionaire financier who invests in buying and selling companies in distressed industries, and who made his early fortune as a fund manager at the Rothschild Group.
Steven Mnuchin, Trump’s Treasury Secretary, is a former partner at the global investment bank Goldman Sachs, a hedge fund manager and, until his nomination, a board member of the Fortune 500 financial holding company, CIT Group. He’s also a member of the Yale University secret society, Skull and Bones.
Vincent Viola is Trump’s nominee for Army Secretary. He’s a billionaire, former chairman of the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX), and current chairman of Virtu Financial, a high-frequency trading firm.Linda McMahon is Trump’s Small Business Administrator. She’s a co-founder and former CEO of WWE, which is now valued at around $1.5 billion, and married to billionaire WWE promoter Vincent McMahon.
Gary Cohn is Trump’s chief economic advisor and Director of the White House National Economic Council. He just left his previous post as president and chief operating officer at Goldman Sachs for the job.Anthony Scaramucci has served as a senior advisor to Trump on the executive committee of the Presidential Transition Team. Previously he was founding co-managing partner of global investment firm SkyBridge Capital. Like Steve Bannon, he also began his career at Goldman Sachs.
Walter ‘Jay’ Clayton is Trump’s nominee for the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), the financial industry’s top regulatory watchdog. Yet Clayton himself is a Wall Street lawyer who has worked on deals for major banks, such as Barclays Capital’s acquisition of Lehman Brothers’ assets, the sale of Bear Stearns to JP Morgan Chase, and the US Treasury’s capital investment in Goldman Sachs. In the same capacity, he has campaigned to reduce restrictions on foreign public companies, and sought lax enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. His wife, Gretchen Butler, works for Goldman Sachs as a private wealth advisor.
Trump’s crack team of money monsters is clearly not planning on acting in the interests of American workers — they will instead do what they know best: use the considerable power of the American state to break down as many regulatory constraints on global banking finance as possible, with a special view to privilege US banks and corporations.
Fossil Fuel Freaks
Trump’s administration has not just been bought by Wall Street. It’s been bought by the oil, gas and coal industries.
Rex Tillerson is Trump’s Secretary of State, and former chairman and CEO of giant oil and gas conglomerate ExxonMobil. As the world’s largest oil major of all, ExxonMobil is the de facto king of fossil fuel interests. Tillerson has close business ties with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and has previously headed up the joint US-Russian oil company Exxon Neftegas.
Tillerson is a friend of Igor Sechin, who heads up the military security services faction of the Kremlin known as ‘Siloviki’. ExxonMobil also hadintimate ties with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates under Tillerson. In any case, Trump has richly rewarded Tillerson for services rendered — 91% of the $1.8 million donated to federal candidates by ExxonMobil’s PAC under Tillerson for this election cycle, went to Republicans.
It’s well-known that ExxonMobil has funded climate denial-ism to the tune of tens of millions of dollars. What’s less well-known is that in the 1970's, ExxonMobil’s own scientific research fully validated the scientific reality of climate change. Yet company executives made a self-serving business-decision to suppress these findings, and fund efforts to discredit climate science.Rick Perry, the former governor of Texas, is Trump’s Secretary of Energy. Perry holds board directorships at Energy Transfer Partners LP and Sunoco Logistics Partners LP, which jointly developed the Dakota Access Pipeline project. The CEO of Energy Transfer Partners, Kelcy Warren, donated $5 million to a super-PAC supportive of Perry. More generally, his two presidential campaigns received over $2.6 million from the oil and gas industry.
Scott Pruitt, former Attorney General in Oklahoma, is the new head of the Environment Protection Agency. Pruitt has a track record of launching federal lawsuits to weaken and overturn EPA regulations not just on carbon emissions, but on all sorts of basic environmental rules on air and water pollution. The New York Times reports that he and other Republican attorney generals have forged an “unprecedented, secretive alliance” with the oil industry.
Congressman Ryan Zinke is Trump’s nominee for Secretary of the Interior. During Senate confirmation hearings, he refused to admit the accuracy of the scientific consensus on human activity being the dominant cause of climate change. Zinke has supported clean energy measures in the past, but in May 2016, he sponsored a bill for a time limit on Obama’s moratorium on federal coal leasing. He routinely voted against environmental protection measures, supporting fossil fuel use, seeking to minimize public and state involvement in managing public lands, while opposing protections for endangered species.
Zinke’s philosophy is basically ‘drill, baby, drill’. That’s why he’s taken over $300,000 in campaign donations from oil and gas companies that want to accelerate drilling across public lands.
Mike Catanzaro is Trump’s nominee for Special Assistant for Energy and the Environment. He is also a climate-denying lobbyist for the oil and gas industry, working for Koch Industries, America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA), Halliburton, Noble Energy, Hess Corporation, and many others. Early on in his career, he was Deputy Policy Director of the 2004 Bush-Cheney presidential campaign.
The fossil fuel freaks want to burn all the oil, gas and coal they can, at any cost — and they are willing to dismantle whatever environmental protections stand in their way.
Black Ops BrigadeIt would be mistaken to assume that Trump’s conflicts with the US intelligence community mean he is necessarily at odds with the military-industrial complex. On the contrary, his defense appointees and advisors are embedded across the military-industrial complex. Trump’s education secretary, DeVos, is the sister of Erik Prince, the notorious founder of disgraced private security firm Blackwater, now known as Academi, which was outed for slaughtering 17 Iraqi civilians.
A source in Trump’s transition team confirms that Erik Prince has advised Trump’s team on intelligence and security issues. Prince now runs another security firm, Frontier Services Group. He supports Trump’s proposal for the US military to grab Iraq’s oil and recommends the escalated deployment of private defense contractors across the Middle East and North Africa, such as in Libya, to crackdown on refugees.
General ‘Mad Dog’ James Mattis is Trump’s Secretary of Defense. He was also, until his resignation due to his political appointment, on the board of directors of General Dynamics, the fifth largest private defense contractor in the world. Mattis is also on the board of Theranos, a biotechnology company known for its questionable automated fingerstick blood test technology.
Lieutenant-General Mike Flynn is Trump’s National Security Advisor. He is a former head of the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) under Obama, and a longstanding military intelligence and special operations insider. Previously, he was director of intelligence for the Joint Special Operations Command; director of intelligence for the US Central Command; commander of the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance; chair of the Military Intelligence Board; and Assistant Director of National Intelligence. Flynn also runs Flynn Intel Group, a private intelligence consulting firm.
Flynn has just co-authored a book with Michael Ledeen, The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and its Allies. Ledeen is a leading neoconservative defense consultant and former Reagan administration appointee who was involved in the Iran–Contra affair as a consultant of then US National Security Advisor, Robert McFarlane. Currently a Freedom Scholar at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD), he was a staunch advocate of the 2003 invasion of Iraq (he was directly involved with the Yellowcake forgeries attempting to fabricate a weapons of mass destruction threat to justify the war) and has campaigned for military interventions in Syria, Iran and beyond. Ledeen’s aggressive foreign policy vision was deeply influential in the formation of the Bush administration’s foreign policy strategy.
It’s worth noting how low Ledeen stoops with his political philosophy. In his 2000 book, Tocqueville on American Character, Ledeen argues that in some situations, “[i]n order to achieve the most noble accomplishments, the leader may have to ‘enter into evil.’” (p. 90) He even argues that this is sanctioned by the Christian God: “Since it is the highest good, the defense of the country is one of those extreme situations in which a leader is justified in committing evil.” (p. 117)That sort of thinking has led him to endorse the ‘cauldronization’ of the Middle East. In 2002, he wrote in support of invading Iraq that: “One can only hope that we turn the region into a cauldron, and faster, please. If ever there were a region that richly deserved being cauldronized, it is the Middle East today.”
General John F. Kelly is Trump’s Secretary of Homeland Security. He is a retired United States Marine Corps general who previously served under Obama as commander of the US Southern Command, responsible for American military operations in Central America, South America and the Caribbean. Before that Kelly was the commanding general of the Multi-National Force-West in Iraq, and the commander of Marine Forces Reserve and Marine Forces North. Kelly is also a vice chairman at the Spectrum Group, a defense contractor lobbying firm; and on the board of directors of two other private Pentagon contractors, Michael Baker International and Sallyport Global.James Woolsey, the former CIA director and neoconservative stalwart — a former Vice President at NSA-contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and among Michael Ledeen’s bosses at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies — was an early Trump supporter, and a senior adviser to Trump on his transition team. He dropped out over reservations with Trump’s plans to restructure the intelligence community.
Lieutenant General Joseph Keith Kellogg is Chief of Staff and Executive Secretary of Trump’s White House National Security Council. the US military’s top information technology official during the Bush administration’s invasion of Iraq in 2003.
He went on to become chief operating officer for the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad, the mechanism for the US occupation of Iraq, from November 2003 to March 2004 — the period widely recognized as being particularly corrupt and inept.In between, Kellogg had joined the board of directors of US government IT contractor, GTSI Corp, where he returned as an independent director after his Iraq stint from 2004 until 2013 — when the firm changed its name to ‘UNICOM Government Inc.’ in an attempt to distance itself from earlier revelations of misconduct.Kellogg later joined the Advisory Board of US defense contractor Raytheon’s Trusted Computer Solutions Inc., and the Strategic Advisory Board of RedXDefence, a US military contractor part-owned by Regina Dugan, former director of the Pentagon’s Defense and Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
In 2012, Wired magazine outed RedXDefense for creating completely rubbish bomb detection technology under a multi-million dollar DARPA contract during Dugan’s tenure. Despite its flaws, the tech was purchased widely by the US military, and numerous allied militaries around the world.
Mike Pompeo is the icing on the cake. As Trump’s CIA director, this Republican Congressman has no obvious experience relevant to running a national intelligence agency, except perhaps for one thing: as Jane Mayer writes in her book Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right (Doubleday 2015), Pompeo is “so closely entwined with the climate-change denying Koch brothers that he was known as the ‘congressman from Koch.’”The Koch brothers, who made their fortune investing in fossil fuels, now have a direct line to America’s premiere national intelligence agency. Now that’s what you call a coup.
Ku Klux Klan
Virulent white nationalism is another fundamental defining feature of the Trump regime.Steve Bannon was founding executive chair of Breitbart News, “the platform of the alt-right” according to Bannon himself. Breitbart is widely known for its publication of “racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-Semitic material.” Bannon himself is also a prolific film producer, and has made or contributed to a range of xenophobic films.
Before his rise to media mogul status, though, Bannon spent a brief time as acting director of the Biosphere 2 experiment, an effort to create a self-sufficient ‘closed system’ environment survivable by a small group of people from 1993 to 1995. At the time, Bannon appeared to share and strongly support the concerns of the Biosphere 2 scientists about the danger of climate change driven by, in his own words, “the effect of greenhouse gases on humans, plants and animals.” He later underwent an Exxon-like about-turn, illustrated by Breitbart’s rampant opposition to the idea that the burning of fossil fuels by human civilization is intensifying climate change.
In 2007, Bannon produced a proposal for a new documentary, ‘Destroying the Great Satan: The Rise of Islamic
Facism [sic] in America’, which accused various media outlets, “Universities and the Left”, the “American Jewish Community”, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the CIA, the FBI, the State Department, and the White House as being “enablers” of a covert mission to establish an “Islamic Republic in the United States.”
Bannon consulted on the proposal with Steven Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism. In 2015, Emerson was described as a “complete idiot” by then Prime Minister David Cameron for claiming falsely on Fox News that Britain is full of Muslim “no go zones” (like the entire city of Birmingham), and that London is run amok by Muslim religious police who beat and wound people who refuse to dress according to a Muslim dress code.Bannon’s list of interviewees for the proposed film is like a Who’s Who of far-right bigotry. Two of the most well known names included Walid Phares, who advised Trump on his national security team during the presidential campaign, and Robert Spencer. Both are connected to the Washington DC-based Center for Security Policy (CSP), a far-right think tank run by former Reagan defense official Frank Gaffney, where they appear regularly as guests on CSP’s ‘Secure Freedom’ radio podcast run by Gaffney. Phares is also a senior fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracy.
Frank Gaffney’s CSP commissioned the original flawed opinion poll that was cited by Trump to justify his ‘Muslim ban’ when he first announced it in late 2015. So it’s clearly no coincidence that Kellyanne Conway, the pollster who carried out the flawed poll, is now Counselor to the President.
Gaffney thus has a significant degree of ideological influence on the Trump regime. He has appeared at least 34 times on Bannon’s Breitbart radio program. His work has also been cited in speeches by Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser.
Alarmingly, Gaffney has disturbing connections to full-blown neo-Nazi groups across Europe, such as the Danish People’s Party (DPP) and the Vlaams Belang (VB) in Belgium.
But he simultaneously has close ties to the US military-industrial complex. In 2013, CSP tax records showed that the CSP had received funding from six of America’s biggest aerospace and defense contractors, namely Boeing ($25,000); General Dynamics ($15,000); Lockheed Martin ($15,000); Northrup Grumman ($5,000); Raytheon ($20,000); and General Electric ($5,000). The CSP has a particularly close relationship with Boeing, the second largest defense contractor in the world, which still provides Gaffney’s group with “general support.”
Michael Reilly, who has been Director of Federal Budget and Program Analysis at Boeing since 2010, was previously Gaffney’s Vice President for Operations at the CSP.
These incestuous ties with the US private defense sector comprise one prime reason that fully 22 officers or advisers of Gaffney’s CSP ended up having appointments in the George W. Bush administration.Senator Jeff Sessions is Trump’s Attorney General. Gaffney’s CSP awarded Sessions the annual ‘Keeper of the Flame’ award in 2015. Sessions has previously expressed sympathies for the Ku Klux Klan. He has closely associated with far-right anti-immigrant organizations founded by John Tanton, a driving force in America’s white nationalist movements. In 1993, Tanton declared: “… for European-American society and culture to persist requires a European-American majority, and a clear one at that.” Yet Trump’s new Attorney General is known for frequently quoting from Tanton’s groups, showing up at their press conferences, and has even received recognition and campaign contributions from them.
The John Tanton connection opens up a can of worms. Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s Counsellor, is also connected to Tanton. Her polling firm was previously contracted by Tanton’s anti-immigration platform Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).
Numerous other officials involved in the Trump team — Lou Barletta, Kris Kobach and Julie Kirchner — have direct organizational ties to Tanton’s FAIR.
But this connects senior Trump officials to a grim history of neo-Nazi agitation in the US. Tanton received large sums of early money for FAIR from the Pioneer Fund, a pro-Nazi grant-giving organization which funded eugenics — the discredited ‘science’ of ‘racial hygiene’. Tanton’s various anti-immigrant platforms received money from the Pioneer Fund as late as 2002. According to a study in the Albany Law Review, the Pioneer Fund had direct ties to Nazi scientists, and its founding directors were Nazi sympathizers. One of them had even travelled to Germany in 1935 to attend a Nazi population conference.
Stephen Miller is a senior policy adviser to Trump. He previously worked as communications director for Jeff Sessions in his senator’s office, and crafted the strategy to defeat a bipartisan immigration reform bill in 2013. During his university days, he worked closely with the neo-Nazi leader Richard Spencer, who coined the term “alternative Right” as a new way of capturing a movement about white racial identity.
Miller denies having worked closely with Spencer when they were at university together as members of the Duke Conservative Union. According to Spencer, Miller helped him with fundraising and promotion for an on-campus debate on immigration policy in 2007. The event featured Peter Brimelow, who runs the white nationalist website Vdare.com, which regularly publishes articles by neo-Nazis. Miller’s relationship with Spencer at this time has been confirmed by email correspondence between Spencer and Brimelow.
It’s perhaps worth noting that the inspiration for Tanton’s neo-Nazi sympathies were, ostensibly, environmental concerns. In a recent article he admits, “my initial interest in curtailing immigration was motivated by a longstanding concern for the environment.”From 1971 to 1975, Tanton was chair of the National Population Committee of one of America’s oldest environmental organizations, the Sierra Club. His theory was that immigration drives unsustainable population growth, which then drains resources and harms the environment. The environmental crisis, from Tanton’s point of view, is a population problem — specifically, a problem of too many people. Part of dealing with that means cracking down on immigration — this, ironically, in a nation founded on immigration.This insidious proto-Nazi ideology now appears to have an operating influence on the White House through Tanton’s ideological surrogates, many of whom are connected to Gaffney and his acolytes in the Trump regime.
The unifying ideology that lends coherence to these intersecting networks of influence comes from a variety of people, but the following stand out in particular.
Michael Anton is a little-known but powerful figure in the Trump administration, now a senior director of strategic communications in the White House National Security Council. He launched his career as a speechwriter and press secretary for New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, before joining Bush’s White House in 2001 as a communications aide for the National Security Council. He went on to become a speechwriter for media mogul Rupert Murdoch at News Corp, then moved into the financial sector, firstly as director of communications for Citigroup, then as a managing director at the BlackRock investment firm.
Anton has played a major role in attempting to cajole and convince conservatives, through various anonymous writings in conservative publications and behind-the-scenes networking, of the necessity of voting Trump to head off the crisis of conservative decline amidst the apocalyptic failures of liberalism.Rupert Murdoch has a direct line to the Trump White House through Michael Anton, but it’s one the News Corp owner has gone to pains to build personally. Murdoch and his wife Jerry Hall were hosted for dinner by Trump at his golf course in Scotland in June 2016. Later Murdoch was seen visiting Trump Tower in November 2016. Murdoch is set to have significant influence on Trump, who reportedly asked the Fox News owner to recommend his top preferred candidates to chair the Federal Communications Commission.
The Murdoch connection has other alarming ramifications. Since 2010, Murdoch has been an equity-holding board member of the American energy firm, Genie Oil & Gas. He had teamed up with Lord Jacob Rothschild, chairman of Rothschild Investment Trust (RIT) Capital Partners, to buy a 5.5% stake in the corporation then worth $11 million.
Murdoch and Rothschild also serve on Genie’s strategic advisory board. Joining them on the board are Larry Summers, former Director of President Obama’s National Economic Council; former Trump senior advisor James Woolsey; Dick Cheney, former Vice-President under George W. Bush; and Bill Richardson, former Secretary of Energy under Clinton and Governor of New Mexico.Genie Oil & Gas has two main subsidiaries. One of them, Afek Oil & Gas, operates in Israel and is currently drilling in the Golan Heights, which under international law is recognized as Syrian territory. The Golan was captured by Israel from Syria in 1967, and unilaterally annexed in 1981 with the introduction of Israeli law to the territory. The other Genie subsidiary, American Shale Oil, is a joint project with the French major Total SA, and operates in Colorado’s Green River Formation.
On its website, the company offers an extraordinary declaration regarding its rationale for focusing on unconventional oil and gas resources:
“The peaking of world oil production presents the US and the world with an enormous challenge. Aggressive action must be taken to avoid unprecedented economic, social and political costs.”
This may well reveal much about the crisis-perceptions of those who influence the Trump regime.Trump’s administration has been further augmented by a man with especially extensive ties to the US Deep State: Henry Kissinger.
Since December 2016, Kissinger, the notorious former Secretary of State convincingly accused of complicity in war crimes by the late Christopher Hitchens — who has played direct advisory roles in both the preceding Bush and Obama administrations — has become Trump’s unofficial foreign policy guru. Kissinger was a secret national security consultant to President Bush, and under Obama was directly involved in the US National Security Council’s chain-of-command.
He now appears to be intimately involved in the evolution of Trump’s foreign policies toward China and Russia. His firm, Kissinger Associates, has for some years played a central role in easing the passage of numerous US corporations into lucrative Chinese investments.
Trump’s peculiar brand of haphazard, unscripted and chaotic political announcements may well have endeared him to Kissinger, who has argued that “unpredictability” is a hallmark of the greatest statesmen. Such leaders act beyond the sort of “pre-vision of catastrophes” offered by established experts recommending caution, instead indulging in “perpetual creation, on a constant redefinition of goals.” The greatest statesmen are able to both “maintain the perfection of order” and “to have the strength to contemplate chaos”, where they can “find material for fresh creation.”
Kissinger’s critical role in developing Trump’s eastward facing strategy was revealed by the German tabloid, Der Bild, which obtained a document from the Trump transition team. The document confirmed Kissinger’s role as the key mastermind brought in to craft a way to rebuild relationships with Russia. Kissinger’s plan would include lifting US economic sanctions — paving the way for a potentially lucrative partnership between American and Russian oil and gas companies — and recognizing Russia’s ownership of the Crimea.
Kissinger’s advice on China policy, however, is not yet fully known. Writing in the South China Morning Post, Pepe Escobar argues that Kissinger’s record suggests Trump will deploy “a mix of ‘balance of power’ and ‘divide and rule’. It will consist of seducing Russia away from its strategic partner China; keeping China constantly on a sort of red alert; and targeting Islamic State while continuing to harass Iran.”Kissinger’s ‘unofficial’ advisory role in the Trump regime is solidified through the direct influence of one of his longtime acolytes.
K.T. McFarland, who is to work under Michael Flynn as Trump’s Deputy National Security Adviser, was an aide to Henry Kissinger during the Nixon administration on the National Security Council from 1970 to 1976. In that capacity, she played a lead role in working on Kissinger’s notorious and originally classified 1974 National Security Study Memorandum 200(NSSM200). The document advocated that population growth in poorer countries was the principal threat to US overseas security and other interests, especially by endangering US access to “mineral supplies”.
Making America hate again
It appears that there are common themes among the different groupings that comprise the Trump regime. Among them are experiences and recognition of crisis: Rex Tillerson and Steve Bannon, for instance, come from backgrounds acknowledging the reality of the planetary ecological crisis.
Energy interests linked to Murdoch believe in an imminent social, economic and political crisis due to peak oil.Most Trump teamsters see their task as saving the fossil fuel industries from crises external to them, and now all ostensibly tend to deny the gravity of the industry’s environmental impacts.
All are worried about the profits of their friends in Wall Street.
A large number of Trump team associates have ties to John Tanton, whose proto-Nazi views are rooted in an eugenics-inspired belief that the environmental crisis is due to too many non-white people.And now Trump’s national security team draws on the parallel views of the old Nixon era Kissinger team concerning the threat of overpopulated poor countries undermining US access to the world’s food, energy and raw materials resources — for which the solution could be to ‘cauldronize’ countries of strategic interest.
These crisis-perceptions, however, are not grounded in systemic insight: but are refracted through the narrow lenses of self-serving power. The crises are relevant only insofar that they represent a threat to their interests. But most importantly, their ensuing beliefs about how to respond to these crises end up being refracted through the ideological framework of the conservative-liberal polarity.
2. The Deep System
Perhaps the most powerful takeaway from this examination of who the Trump administration actually is, is that the Trump regime is not external to the Deep State. On the contrary, the people who hold senior posts in his administration, both formal and otherwise, are key nodes that represent whole layers of social and institutional networks within and across the wider US Deep State.
If this is not immediately obvious, it’s because there is much misunderstanding of what the Deep State actually is. The Deep State is not simply ‘the intelligence community’. When a more accurate understanding of the American Deep State and its symbiotic embeddedness in a transnational Deep System is adopted, the role of the Trump faction can be properly discerned.
Secret state, opaque system
In his book, Deep Politics and the Death of JFK (University of California Press, 1996), Professor Peter Dale Scott coined the term deep politics to designate the study of criminal and extra-legal practices linked to the state. He defined a deep political system or process as one in which institutional and non-institutional bodies, criminal syndicates, politicians, judges, media, corporations and leading government employees, resort to “decision-making and enforcement procedures outside as well as inside those sanctioned by law and society. What makes these supplementary procedures ‘deep’ is the fact that they are covert or suppressed, outside public awareness as well as outside sanctioned political processes.”
Deep political analysis is therefore concerned with revealing the tendency of the state to enter into activity outside of the state’s own rule of law. From the viewpoint of conventional political science, law enforcement and the criminal underworld are opposed to each other, the former struggling to gain control of the latter. But as Scott observes:
“A deep political analysis notes that in practice these efforts at control lead to the use of criminal informants; and this practice, continued over a long period of time, turns informants into double agents with status within the police as well as the mob. The protection of informants and their crimes encourages favours, payoffs, and eventually systemic corruption. The phenomenon of ‘organized crime’ arises: entire criminal structures that come to be tolerated by the police because of their usefulness in informing on lesser criminals.”
This can lead to a form of state-crime symbiosis, blurring the defining parameters of which side controls the other. From the outside, this appears as the emergence of an invisible “deep” dimension to state activities tying it to organized crime, when in reality what is happening is that the state is inherently porous: its “deep” invisible side connects it to all manner of private, extra-legal actors who often seek to operate outside or in breach of the law — or to influence or bend the law to serve their interests.In his more recent opus, The American Deep State, (p. 14) Scott also acknowledges in this vein that the deep state “is not a structure but a system, as difficult to define, but also as real and powerful, as a weather system.”
As I’ve shown in my paper published in the anthology, The Dual State (Routledge, 2016), one of the least understood features of deep politics, then, is that the “deep state” must inherently be inter-networked with a vast array of non-state and often transnational influence across corporations, financial institutions, banks, and criminal enterprises.
The postwar global deep system
America’s historic role as the principal shaper of global capitalism means that the globalization of capitalism enabled the emergence and expansion of a US-dominated transnational Deep System — within this global Deep System, a US-dominated transnational financial elite has become inherently entangled with criminal networks.
The expansion of global capitalism since 1945 was not an automated process. On the contrary, it was a deeply violent process led principally by the United States, Britain and Western Europe. Throughout, the CIA and Wall Streetacted largely hand-in-hand. Globalization was tied directly to military interventions in over 70 developing nations designed to create the political conditions conducive to markets that would be ‘open’ to western capital penetration, and thus domination of local resources and labour. The logic of ‘deep politics’ required that much of this criminal political violence in foreign theatres be suppressed from public consciousness, or otherwise justified in different ways.
This was privately acknowledged by US State Department planners working in partnership at the time with the Council on Foreign Relations:
“If war aims are stated, which seem to be concerned solely with Anglo-American imperialism, they will offer little to people in the rest of the world… Such aims would also strengthen the most reactionary elements in the United States and the British Empire. The interests of other peoples should be stressed, not only those of Europe, but also of Asia, Africa and Latin America. This would have a better propaganda effect.”
The number of people that died in the course of this forcible integration of former colonies across Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle East into the orbit of an emerging US-UK dominated global economy, is astonishing.In his book, Unpeople (2004), British historian Mark Curtis offers a detailed breakdown of the death toll at approximately 10 million — a conservative under-estimate, he qualifies. American economist Dr JW Smith, in his Economic Democracy (2005), argues that globalization was:
“… responsible for violently killing 12 to 15 million people since WW II and causing the death of hundreds of millions more as their economies were destroyed or those countries were denied the right to restructure to care for their people… that is the record of the Western imperial centers of capital from 1945 to 1990.”
On the back of this deep, transnational political violence — which remains obscured in mainstream media and history education — the US and UK erected a global financial architecture to serve the interests of their most powerful corporate and banking institutions, which hold overwhelming sway over the political class.
State power was deployed to integrate the resources, raw materials, fossil fuel energy reserves, and cheap labor from these vast areas of the world into a global economy dominated by transnational elite interests based largely in the US, UK and Western Europe.
This, too, opened the way for new forms of criminalization of state power. This can be illustrated with a powerful example from terrorism finance expert Loretta Napoleoni, who chaired the Club de Madrid’s terrorism financing group.
She reports that financial deregulation pursued by successive US governments paved the way for different armed and terror groups to link up with each other and with organized crime, generating an overall criminal economy valued at about $1.5 trillion. This criminal economy consists of “illegal capital flights, profits from criminal enterprises, drug trading, smuggling, legal businesses, and so on”, most of which is recycled into Western economies through money laundering via mainstream financial institutions: “It is a vital element of the cash flow of these economies.”
But the problem goes further. As the primary medium of exchange for this criminal economy is the US dollar, the latter’s role as the world reserve currency has cemented a structural situation in which the economic power of the US Treasury has become conditional on the economic immunity of transnational criminal networks, who systematically use US dollars for criminal transactions: The greater the stock of dollars held abroad, the greater the source of revenue for the US Treasury.
These examples illustrate how the US Deep State operates as the chief regulator of a global Deep System, in which seemingly legitimate international financial flows have become increasingly enmeshed with transnational organized crime, powerful corporate interests who control the world’s fossil fuel and raw materials resources, and the privatization of the military-industrial complex.
The Deep State faction behind Trump
Trump fits into this system snugly. Among his draft executive orders is one that would open the door for US corporations to engage in secretive corrupt and criminal practices to buy conflict minerals from the Congo — which are widely used in electronic products like smartphones and laptops.
From this broader perspective, it’s clear that far from representing a force opposed to the Deep State, the Trump regime represents an interlocking network of powerful players across sectors which heavily intersect with the Deep State: finance, energy, military intelligence, private defense, white nationalist ‘alt-right’ media, and Deep State policy intellectuals.
According to Scott, this reflects a deepening “old division within Big Money — roughly speaking, between those Trilateral Commission progressives, many flourishing from the new technologies of the global Internet, who wish the state to do more than at present about problems like wealth disparity, racial injustice and global warming, and those Heritage Foundation conservatives, many from finance and oil, who want it to do even less.”
So rather than being a nationalist ‘insurgency’ against the corporate globalist ‘Deep State’, the Trump regime represents a white nationalist coup by a disgruntled cross-section within the Deep State itself. Rather than coming into conflict with the Deep State, we are seeing a powerful military-corporate nexus within the American Deep State come to the fore. Trump, in this context, is a tool to re-organize and restructure the Deep State in reaction to what this faction believe to be an escalating crisis in the global Deep System.
In short, the Deep State faction backing Trump is embarking on what it believes is a unique and special mission: to save the Deep State from a decline caused by the failures of successive American administrations.
However, what they are actually doing is accelerating the decline of the American Deep State and the disruption of the global Deep System.
3. Systemic Crisis
The Trump faction is correct that there is a crisis in US power, but they fail to grasp the true nature of the crisis in its global systemic context.Each grouping within the Trump faction, and the elite social and institutional networks they represent, has its own narrow understanding of the crisis, framed from within the ideological parameters of its own special interests and class position.
Each grouping suffers serious epistemological limitations which mean they are not only incapable of grasping the systemic nature of the crisis and its impacts, but they hold self-serving views about the crisis which tend to project their insecurities onto all sorts of Others.
The growth problem
For instance, the ongoing failure to lift the US economy into a meaningful recovery is framed by the Trump faction as due to not putting ‘America first’ in trade relations. Trump’s plan is to boost infrastructure investment to create jobs at home, and to adopt more protectionist trade policies to protect American industries and manufacturing.
The immediate reality here is that Trump’s money monsters are keenly aware that conventional neoliberal American economic and financial policies are no longer working: Under Obama, for instance, the median household income saw its first significant increase since the 2007–8 recession in 2015, rising by 5.2%. In real terms, though, little has changed. Median household income is at $56,516 a year, which when adjusted for inflation, is 2.4% less than what it was at the turn of the millennium.
So while Obama managed to create over a million new jobs, purchasing power for the working and middle classes hasn’t increased — it’s actually decreased. Meanwhile, although the poverty rate dropped by 1.2% in 2015, the overall trend since the 2007 crash has seen the number of poor Americans increase from 38 million to 43.1 million people.
But this problem goes beyond Obama — it’s systemic.Over the last century, the net value of the energy we are able to extract from our fossil fuel resource base has inexorably declined. The scientific concept used to measure this value is Energy Return on Investment (EROI), a calculation that compares the quantity of energy one extracts from a resource, to the quantity of energy used to enable the extraction.
There was a time in the US, around the 1930's, when the EROI of oil was a monumental 100. This has steadily decreased, with some fluctuation. By 1970, oil’s EROI had dropped to 30. Over the last three decades alone, the EROI of US oil has continued to plummet by more than half, reaching around 10 or 11.
According to environmental scientist professor Charles Hall of the State University of New York, who created the EROI measure, global net energy decline is the most fundamental cause of global economic malaise. Because we need energy to produce and consume, we need more energy to increase production and consumption, driving economic growth. But if we’re getting less energy over time, then we simply cannot increase economic growth.

As President-elect Trump spearheads plans to boost oil, coal and gas, a major new study by one of the world's foremost…motherboard.vice.com
And this is why there has been an unmistakable correlation between long-term global net energy decline, and a long-term decline in the rate of global economic growth. There is also an unmistakable correlation between that long-term decline, the rise in global inequality, and the increase in global poverty.
The self-styled liberal faction of the Deep State has convinced itself that capitalist growth helped halve global poverty since the 1990's, but there’s reason to question that. That success rate is calculated from the World Bank poverty measure of $1.25 a day, a level of very extreme poverty. But this poverty measure is too low.
While the numbers of people living in extreme poverty has indeed halved, many of those people are still poor, deprived of their basic needs. A more accurate measure of poverty shows that the number of poor worldwide has overall increased.
As the London-based development charity ActionAid showed in a 2013report, a more realistic poverty measure lies between $5 and $10 a day.World Bank data shows that since 1990, the number of people living under $10 a day has increased by 25 percent, and the number of people living under $5 a day has increased by 10 percent. Today, 4.3 billion people — nearly two-thirds of the global population — live on less than $5 a day.
So really, poverty has worsened in the Age of Progress. And now the unsustainability of this equation is coming home to roost even in the centers of global growth, where wealth is most concentrated.
As of mid-2016, the GDP of Europe has been stagnant for over a decade, and the US has reached a GDP growth rate of 1.1 percent, nearly the same as its population. This means that the US has actually experienced no average increase in “per capita wealth”, according to SUNY’s Charles Hall.
To maintain this semblance of economic growth, we are using ingenious debt mechanisms to finance new economic activity. The expansion of global debt is now higher than 2007 pre-crash levels. We are escalating the risk of another financial crisis in coming years, because the tepid growth we’ve managed to squeeze out of the economy so far is based on borrowing from an energetically and environmentally unsustainable future.
And that growth-by-debt mechanism is also occurring within the oil industry, which has amassed two trillion dollars worth of debt that, in the context of the chronic oil price slump, means the industry is not profitable enough to generate the funds to ever repay its debt.
Both pro- and anti-Trump factions of the Deep State are in denial of the fact that this escalating crisis is due, fundamentally, to the global net energy decline of the world’s fossil fuel resource base.In a time of fundamental systemic crisis, the existing bedrock of norms and values a group normally holds onto maybe shaken to the core. This can lead a group to attempt to reconstruct a new set of norms and values — but if the group doesn’t understand the systemic crisis, the new construct, if it diagnoses the crisis incorrectly, can end up blaming the wrong issues, leading to Otherization.
The Trump faction ends up falling-back on the narrow pathways with which they are familiar, and believe that rather than requiring a different path, the problem is that we are not fully committed to pursuing the old path. They insist that the problem is not inherent to the structure of the fossil fuel industry itself, or the debt-infested nature of the parasitical global financial system. The problem is seen simply as insufficient exploitation of America’s fossil fuels; too much regulation of the financial system; constant economic pandering to unAmericans — Muslims, immigrants, Latinos, black people — who are either draining the financial system through crime, drugs and terror, or simply overburdening it with their huge numbers.
While they believe that business-as-usual growth must now be monopolized by ‘America first’ (and particularly by a white nationalist definition of ‘America’), their liberal detractors cling to the belief that business-as-usual will in itself usher in continued growth, with a tad of technocratic tinkering and billionaire philanthropy spreading the gains throughout the world.
Both worldviews suffer from serious ideological fallacies — but it’s the failure of the latter that has helped radicalize the former.Looking at the writing of Trump’s senior advisor Michael Anton throws significant light on how the crisis has radicalized the Trump faction into a delusional, binary worldview. For Anton, the key culprit is the moral and ideological bankruptcy of the liberal paradigm, which has destroyed the economy and is eroding American values; as well as the failure of the conservative establishment to do anything meaningful about it. Anton pined for a great disruptor to revitalize conservativism on a new footing: in the process tearing down liberals and old conservatives in one fell swoop. And so began his ideological love affair with Donald Trump.
The result is Trump’s vision of himself as a sort of American messiah — but this is, of course, a grand construction. The Trump faction, following Anton’s line of argument, have simply framed all of America’s challenges through the narrow lens in which they see everything: the problem of liberals; and thus all America’s problems can be conveniently Otherized, pinned on the fatal combination of liberal decadence, and conservative bankruptcy.
Thus, Trump’s proposed program is seen by its proponents as a war on both the liberal and conservative establishments responsible for the crisis. The vision seems simple enough.
Domestically and economically: kick-starting economic growth by ramping up massive investments in America’s remaining fossil fuel resources; using this to generate the revenues to fund the trillion dollar infrastructure plan; while refocusing efforts on revitalizing American manufacturing; all of which will create millions of new American jobs.
The foreign affairs extension is to partner with Russia to facilitate US-Russian cooperation on new oil and gas projects in the region; weakening the Russia-China partnership to facilitate American pressure on China to capitulate to US encroachment on untapped oil and gas resources in the South China Sea.
The ‘war on terror’ corollary of the Trump vision is to rollback Iran’s expanding influence in the Middle East, which has greatly increased thanks to the 2003 Iraq War and the destabilization of Syria; thereby re-consolidating the regional geopolitical power of the Gulf states, where the bulk of the world’s remaining oil and gas resources are to be found.
The domestic dimension of that ‘war on terror’ corollary involves cracking down on the increasing numbers of ‘useless eaters’, the hordes of non-white Others, who are seen ultimately as parasites gnawing at America’s financial, cultural and national security. Thus, the walling off of Mexico, the ‘Muslim ban’, the crackdown on immigrants, and the veiled threats to the Black Lives Matter movement that its ‘anti police’ attitude will not be tolerated, all become explicable as the result of what happens when a systemic crisis is not understood for what it is, but simply projected onto those who are affected the most by that very crisis.In all these areas, the common theme discernible across the Trump regime’s key appointments is to react to crisis-perceptions by attributing the crisis to various populations, both inside and outside the United States — invariably painted as out of control, rapidly growing in numbers, and thereby comprising an inherent threat to the ‘greatness’ of an ‘American’ identity that is increasingly defined in parochial, ethno-nationalist terms.
But that’s obviously not going to work. Instead it will escalate the crisis.
Global net energy decline is not going to go away by drilling harder and faster. The very act of drilling harder and faster will ultimately accelerate net energy decline. The geophysical brake on economic growth will harden, not weaken.
And this means that Trump will be forced to rely on public private partnerships to bring in huge investment loans from the private sector to deliver his infrastructure plan. So whatever domestic low paid, sweatshop-style, factory jobs Trump manages to engineer in the near-term, American taxpayers will be forced to foot the bill for the trillions of dollars in repayment of those private loans. Trump’s plan will thus compound the already crisis-prone debt-levels in the American and global financial system.
Meanwhile, climate change will accelerate, even as international order becomes more unstable while Trump spearheads a more aggressive military posture in the Middle East and South Asia, particularly toward Iraq, Iran and China; and cracks down harder on minorities at home.For every degree to which Trump upscales aggression, America’s real national security will be downgraded. And like any good despot, Trump’s failures will become food for his own propaganda, to be conveniently blamed on the myriad of Others who, in the small minds of the Trump faction, are preventing America from becoming ‘great again.’
4. The future
As global systemic crisis intensifies, the myriad of networks, forces and factions that comprise the American Deep State are turning on each other: Trump is not the cause, but the symptomatic outcome of this structural rupture within the US establishment. What this means is that defeating Trump in itself is not going to weaken or rollback the forces which his regime has unleashed.
On the other hand, although this trajectory will produce immense upheaval and chaos while it lasts, the social support base for our Trumpian moment is dwindling.We are witnessing the reactionary death throes of the social forces behind the Trump faction. Exit polls show that only 37% of young people aged 18–29 years old voted Trump.
However, while over 55% voted for Clinton, a large number of young people — approximately one million — who might have usually voted Democrat, simply didn’t come out to vote. That’s because while they may have disliked Trump, they didn’t particularly like Clinton either. One in ten millennial voters went for a third party candidate — though still a modest number, it’s three times higher than the number of third-party votes than in the previous election. At this rate of growth, the millennial shift to third party candidates could become fatal for Democrats.
According to Republican strategist Evan Siegfried, if millennials had turned out to vote in 2016, they could have swung the election away from Trump decisively. This is because the party’s traditional support base consists largely of middle class white people, rural voters and baby boomers.
“They are literally dying out,” said Siegried. “Every four years the white population decreases by two per cent, and the white non-college educated population decreases by four per cent.”
Siegfried thus argues that Trump’s victory was won by trying to ensure that millennials and minorities who were unlikely to vote for him didn’t even come out to vote at all.But here’s the rub. While Siegfried concedes that the demographics continue to shift in favour of the Democrats in the long-run, Clinton was clearly a deeply uninspiring candidate, compromised utterly by her ties to Wall Street and the Deep State.
Democrats looking at these demographic dynamics in the run up to 2016 fooled themselves into believing that a Clinton victory was inevitable. They were wrong, obviously. And while the demographics prove that the Trump support base in America will shrink, this proves that the millennial future won’t just be sceptical of Republicans, but Democrats too.
Today, the composition of the Trump regime proves that Clinton’s loss was not a loss for the Deep State. On the contrary, the real problem is that the American electoral system reflects a form of regime-rotation within the Deep State itself. The rise of the Trump faction signals that the escalation of global systemic crisis has pushed the usual round of regime-rotation into a tipping point, where one branch of the Deep State is now at war with the other branch.
Both sides of the US Deep State blame each other for the system’s failures, neither wishing to admit their own complicity in driving the systems responsible for those failures.
One side wants to respond to the systemic crisis by accelerating market share of the old paradigm — extending the life of the fossil fuel system and deregulating predatory capital. While most are climate deniers, some even appear to recognize the dangers of environmental crisis and resource scarcity but wish to shore up the US Deep State against the crisis as a nationalist response:
The other side hold a deep faith that technological progress will save the day and permit business-as-usual and endless extraction-premised growth to continue — they believe that digitally-driven technological innovations will allow Wall Street to have its cake and eat it: we can grow the economy, and enrich a tiny number of financiers in the West exponentially, and the dividends will trickle down to the Rest with a bit of technocratic tinkering, selective regulation and generous philanthropy.
Neither side truly understands that they both remain locked into the old, dying industrial neoliberal paradigm. That both the conventional Republican and Democrat strategies have failed. And that if they continue to ignore and overlook the reality of the global systemic crisis and its escalating symptoms, they will both become increasingly disrupted and irrelevant to large sectors of the American population.In that scenario, politics will become increasingly polarized, not less so. Republicans will seek to shore up their white nationalist support base while Democrats will continue to lose credibility as a genuine critical voice due to their establishment myopia.In an alternative scenario, agents at different levels in both parties, third parties, and across civil society begin to see our Trumpian moment for what it really is.
They realize that both the conservative and liberal polarities are being disrupted by the global systemic crisis. That the Deep State is being disrupted by the global systemic crisis. And that Trump is merely an effort by a branch of the Deep State to stave off the disruption. And that the failures of the other branch of the Deep State are precisely what enabled and emboldened this eventuality.
In that scenario, the current political tendencies of the millennial generation open the possibility for new paths forward for politics, whether conservative or liberal: to re-build their parties, organizations and paradigms in accordance with the emerging dynamics of a global system in transition to a new phase state: beyond carbon, beyond endless growth, beyond mass consumerism, beyond the banal polarities of left and right, white and black, native and foreign, and in service to people and planet.

Trump is facing a coup. Not necessarily a frontal assault. But a slow burn coup that will destroy everything he tries to do. When the economy collapses Trump will be forced to respond with Continuity of Government response mode. He will be forced into a defensive posture just to survive. He will have no choice but to allow crackdown on cities in order to save lives. He will also be met with widespread terror attacks as we have previously discussed
Obama is in the process of leaving Trump a covert and shadow government that will act independently of anything that Trump tries to do. We have word that some of the operatives have been embedded as far deep as a lowly GS 8 position but have access to communications through back channels that are much higher on the chain. These ops have fabricated resumes and work histories and relevant records have been changed. The task of rooting them out would take month/years. Some of the operatives are minorities, so regular government discipline can’t touch them because of the two-tiered system of justice coming from the Civil Service.
I laugh at how naive Trump is that he thinks can drain the swamp. He is facing tens of thousands of federal employees who will f*** up his agenda.
The Wyoming siutation your contact mentions is an extension of the Northern Colorado insurgency forces that have been embedded for years that we have spoken about. They are in play to take care of the Front Range. This is a common practice around the country. For example, you already know about the Chinese from inland ports in Sacremento. It is all the same.
As I told to you before, economic collapse is here. FedGov is pushing it quicker. Unrest will be off charts. Right blames left and so forth.
This would have happened sooner but nobody predicted that Trump would actually win. They thought their fraud was too great to lose election.
Many choose to not participate because this will spin out of control. Some x-mil have/are bugging out or have already done so. Preliminary arrests could happen before the clamps are applied and Trump will have nothing to do with this. Agencies will act on their own authority if already compromised. Trump will only be along for ride and will be in self protective mode.
Clinton Versus Trump And The Co-Option Of The Liberty Movement
Wednesday, 07 September 2016
Most of my readers are well aware of my position on U.S. elections in general – they are an eternal farce meant to give false hope to the masses. They are designed to make the public feel as if we are participating in our own governance, when in reality, we are only ever allowed to choose from a list of candidates that the elites pre-select. This does not mean that all politicians are corrupted or controlled, but according to the evidence I have seen, the majority of government represents the desires of a select few, and not the majority of the citizenry.
There is absolutely no chance of retaking our current government by working within the system. To be blunt, the system is now structured to protect itself and nothing else. To think that it can be influenced through “elections” is an absurd notion.
For the past decade, though, I have seen a powerful shift in the public psyche towards a realization that our government is built upon a fraudulent paradigm; the false left versus the false right. I also understand that if I can see this shift, so can the numerous think tanks funded by the elites. The elites do not always try to obstruct changes in public awareness; this would be an unrealistic and fruitless effort. Instead, they often work to co-opt these changes and exploit them to the benefit of the establishment.
Consider, for instance, the aggressive takeover of the Tea Party movement by the neoconservative guard. I joined activist efforts in 2007 when the Tea Party was small but growing and organized primarily around the goal of auditing and/or shutting down the Federal Reserve. Many people are not even aware that the Tea Party was launched by Ron Paul among other libertarian voices.
As the movement began to grow exponentially, there were some attempts to stifle it. Accusations of “homegrown terrorism” were thrown around, not necessarily by Democrats, but by the Republican Party. When the strategy of demonization failed, the same Fox News supported neocons that called for our heads suddenly began hijacking our bandwagon. I’ll never forget the day I saw a supposed Tea Party event featuring main speakers like Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee; it was then that I knew there was no more Tea Party.
Of course, the elites were able to pirate the name (or the “brand”) and pirate some of the events, but they were never able to steal away the idea and the principles behind the movement. This seemed to confound the establishment. No matter what tactics they used, the movement, which I and many others have always called the “Liberty Movement,” just simply would not go away.
What the elites did not seem to grasp at that time was that the movement was not rooted in a single organization, or a single candidate, or even a group of “leaders.” Instead, the liberty movement was and still is rooted in a set of principles. Normal co-option tactics could not possibly work. They could take over the Tea Party, but true liberty activists could simply walk away and start another group or groups. We are adaptable, and because we do not have a traditional centralized leadership, we are difficult to pin down and control.
No matter what the elites have tried, they have not been able to lure liberty activists back to the neocon reservation. However, the establishment is not averse to trying new methods and new avenues of attack.
The first and most common strategy of co-option is to fool the target movement into adopting a leader or leaders that they think are friendly but who are actually working against them. As mentioned earlier, this was attempted with the Tea Party, but it failed. Liberty activists left the Tea Party and continued their efforts elsewhere. When simpler methods elude the establishment, they tend to add complexities.For example, I have written extensively on a concerted effort by the Russian government controlled RT network and others to paint Eastern governments as “victims” of globalist aggression. As I have outlined and thoroughly evidenced, nations like Russia and China work hand-in-hand with globalist institutions like the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, the Bank of International Settlements and the United Nations. It is undeniable that the East is a part of the so-called “New World Order.” They are not opposed to it.
Despite the considerable evidence to the contrary, there is still a percentage of the liberty movement that clings to the notion that globalism is a construct of the West alone, and that the East is “fighting against it.” One purpose of this propaganda is, I believe, to continue the effort to co-opt the liberty movement. If the movement can be convinced to develop adoration for globalist puppets like Vladimir Putin or Xi Jinping, then we can eventually be lured into negative actions under false pretenses. Fortunately, the false East/West paradigm is losing its edge and liberty activists mesmerized by it are coming to their senses once again. The only REAL paradigm worth our concern is the globalists versus the rest of us.
Many people will not understand why such measures on the part of the establishment would be necessary. The fact is, the liberty movement is the single-most vital activist movement in modern history. It is the core of a great awakening that is accelerating but still fragile.
This awakening, if left to grow, will result in the erasure of all false paradigms and the elites behind them. A problem that has plagued humanity for centuries, the problem of centralization and collectivism (community by force rather than by consent), could finally be dismantled.
Some will claim such statements amount to “delusions of grandeur,” but if that were true, the elites would not need to spend vast amounts of energy and capital trying to co-opt or demonize us. If we were not a threat, or if our claims were nonsensical “conspiracies” with no validity, then they would let us clamor about until we inevitably self destruct. Instead, they have well-funded organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center dedicated to endlessly misrepresenting who we are and what we believe in.
With the false East/West paradigm not achieving the desired effect, and the hack and slash tactics of the SPLC and the mainstream media doing little to deter the expansion of the movement, the elites have become more sophisticated.
Whenever you have a rebellion focused on the inherent ideals of freedom, totalitarian institutions struggle to intervene. The issue is, freedom is not only moral, but practical. Wherever true freedom exists, people are not only happier, but more productive and prosperous. It’s hard for a tyrant to fight a rebellion based on freedom because the idea is more powerful than any weapon or any form of treachery. No matter how advanced the tyranny is, and no matter how many rebels they imprison or kill, the idea of freedom endures.The only way to destroy a rebellion like this, a rebellion like the liberty movement, is to make it about something other than freedom. The powers that be have to convince that movement to support policies that are destructive to their own ideals. If this can be done, then that rebellion has lost the advantage of principle – the only advantage that really matters.
So what does any of this have to do with the 2016 election?
As I have pointed out for many months, the election of 2016 is an obvious dividing point for our nation. This is how I was able to predict back in March that the final election would be Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton – the match-up made too much sense.Clinton was always a given. No other Democratic candidate could possibly encompass the pure evil of the establishment guard more than her. And, the only candidate conservatives could revile more than Barack Obama is Hillary Clinton. Clinton is even despised by many on the political Left. This is a perfect scenario for the elites.
I have been trying to recall any election in the past century in which more negative and potentially damning information was released about a candidate. Clinton’s numerous lies on the Benghazi attacks are still fresh in the public consciousness. No one can deny, at the very least, that she had real-time confirmation as head of the State Department that the diplomatic station in Benghazi was under direct attack, and that under her watch no aid was ever sent though it was readily available. Despite her dismissals in congressional hearings, her own emails confirm that she was aware of the terrorist event, but told the American people a fabricated story about “protests” rather than a violent assault.
The motives behind Clinton allowing Ambassador Chris Stevens among others to be murdered in Benghazi have yet to be revealed. I suspect that the then-secret arms flow from Libya into Syria and the covert U.S. support of ISIS may have had something to do with it.
Through constant email hacks and leaks, Clinton has been proven over and over again to be either a liar or completely incompetent. Her misappropriation of taxpayer funds for her husband’s foundation, her mishandling of classified materials and the misuse of her position within government to dole out favors to her financial patrons is so egregious that if government actually followed the rule of law she would be imprisoned for the rest of her life.
In fact, Clinton’s only defense so far for her misdeeds has been to argue essentially that because of her health condition she is too incompetent to be blamed for her behavior.
Add to this her open pandering to insane cultural Marxist groups like third-wave feminists and Black Lives Matter and it would be hard to find a more cartoonist or cinematic monster. So, people will have to forgive me when I say that anyone who thinks the establishment is stupid enough to place all their eggs in the basket of the Clinton campaign is living in a fantasy world. Clearly, a Clinton presidency is not the end game for the elites.
Trump’s public persona is the exact antithesis to Clinton’s. Readers know that for months I have been predicting a Trump presidency. Those not familiar with my position can read my article
To summarize, the elites need a patsy for the breakdown of the financial system they have engineered. That patsy will not be Trump per se, but conservatives in general. Whether Donald Trump is aware of this program or not, I do not know. I have no hard evidence indicating that Trump is anti-constitution; then again, I don’t have much evidence indicating he is pro-constitution. All I have at present to go by is his rhetoric, and rhetoric counts for nothing.What I do know is that triggering a fiscal crisis under the watch of Trump and blaming conservatives is far more useful to the elites than triggering a crisis under Clinton and risk blame falling on international banking syndicates.
I can say with a high level of certainty that millions of conservatives in the U.S. will not tolerate a Clinton presidency. It’s just not going to happen. I give it a year or less before she begins implementing draconian measures above and beyond Obama’s efforts and Americans respond with physical rebellion. In this event, the U.S. will be torn apart by outright civil war.
Those who think this is an exaggeration should consider the fact that we have already been on the edge of widespread conflict with the federal government during the Bundy Ranch incident, and that was over property rights and government abuse of protesters. The average American is completely oblivious to how close we came to an open shooting war, not just in Nevada but across the country. Imagine how oblivious they will be to the reaction over a Clinton gun grab.
I do not think this is the plan, though.Rather, the plan may be in part to lure the liberty movement, which is now more influential than ever before, back under the purview of the Republican umbrella. With Trump at the helm, there is an assumption among many liberty activists that the establishment has “stumbled” and lost control. Keep in mind that without Clinton as the opposing super-villain, this narrative does not work.Only Clinton could frighten liberty activists enough to forgo their understanding of the false left/right paradigm and rejoin the Republican Party. Only Trump, with his brand of rhetoric, could convince them that perhaps the party has been shaken up and the neocon rats scattered. I’m just not buying it.
I believe Clinton is meant to lose. If this is the case and Trump is inaugurated in January of next year, the liberty movement needs to ask itself if Trump is truly an obstacle for the elites, or if he is an ally to the elites.
The Left is already salivating over the possibility that the Trump campaign will devour the liberty movement and turn it into something unrecognizable. Just take a gander at this editorial from Bloomberg called 'The Tea Party Meets Its Maker', which announces the death of the "Tea Party" at the hands of Trump (and yes, they are lumping all patriot groups under the label of the Tea Party "racists").
This article is an interesting window into the twisted mind of the collectivist Left. Set aside Bloomberg's acrid vitriol and biased ignorance of what we stand for; they already have a childish image in their minds of who we are and that's never going to change. Instead, look at how they can barely contain their poisonous glee over the idea that independent and decentralized liberty activists could be absorbed and assimilated through the rise of Trump. Clearly, they have always hated the fact that we have been impossible to co-opt to this point.
And hey, if they can't beat Trump in the election, then at least Trump's success will mean the destruction of those bastard constitutionalists with their practical world views and highly evidenced arguments. Screw those white guys.
This is not to say that a media rag like Bloomberg is privy to any plans to co-opt the liberty movement. They are knowingly dishonest, and they are globalist tools, but I think they mostly believe they are being dishonest in the name of elevating the Democratic party. They think Hillary is their hero, and that Trump is a villain, and the corporate oligarchs they work for are not even part of the election equation.
That said, their argument that Trump could bring down liberty activist groups is not without merit. People say that sometimes life imitates art. I say, sometimes mainstream journalism accidentally imitates life.
The greatest threat to our movement will be if we centralize and fall in line behind one man or one mainstream organization. In our fervor to defeat Hillary Clinton, who is admittedly a despicable person, will we find ourselves willingly blind to any trespasses by Trump? Imagine for a moment that the elites do indeed crash our financial system with Trump in office; will we still hold Trump accountable to the same constitutional standards as we would a president under non-crisis conditions?
Vote for whoever you wish, but realize that our responsibilities do not end once the election is over. If Trump as president responds to a crisis with martial law or other unconstitutional abuses, will we make excuses for him because we WANT to believe he is anti-establishment, or will we stand against him as we would Hillary Clinton?
Maybe these are presumptuous questions. Perhaps there will be no Trump presidency. Perhaps he does take office but there is no financial crash (though simple mathematics dictate otherwise). Perhaps Trump will magically invigorate our economic structure, the elites will walk away in solemn defeat and America will return to a golden age of prosperity. Yeah, we can all dream.
he bottom line is, far more important than the U.S. elections, far more important than a Clinton defeat or a Trump win, far more important even than economic crisis is the continued independence and vitality of the liberty movement. The temptation to sacrifice that independence for some activists will be overwhelming. It will seem far easier to hand over responsibility for the future of this nation to a more “official” entity. But in this sacrifice of responsibility lies the death of freedom. Again, the liberty movement is the most important movement in modern human history, and the only way it can be killed is if we help kill it. The only way it can be co-opted is if we allow it. The risk at this moment is greater than it has ever been.
Even if you disagree with the potential for every scenario I present here, all I ask is that you increase your vigilance at this time and whatever happens, don’t forgo your principles for the sake of what you think is a lesser evil.
Trump signals approval of DNC hack for the information it revealed
Dec 16th 2016 11:20AM
President-elect Donald Trump in a Friday tweet pointed approvingly to the fact [EDITOR - NOT A F**KING FACT] that a Russian-led [EDITOR - COULD HAVE BEEN THE CIA, MI6 OR THE MASSOD/ISRAEL] hack of the Democratic National Committee revealed that the head of the organization improperly provided Hillary Clinton with debate questions in advance.
In a likely reference to criticism Trump has received about his reluctance to acknowledge Russia's role in the hack, Trump tweeted: "Are we talking about the same cyber attack where it was revealed that head of the DNC illegally gave Hillary the questions to the debate?
"Emails leaked in the hack showed that Donna Brazile, who went on to become the interim chair of the DNC, appeared to tip off Clinton's campaign about a question in advance of a CNN Democratic primary debate in March.
In October, another WikiLeaks email suggested that Brazile leaked a question to Clinton in advance of a CNN town-hall event in Ohio.Brazile denied doing so, but an email later showed she had access to the exact wording of a question from TV One moderator Roland Martin.
Brazile had replaced Debbie Wasserman Schultz as chair of the DNC on an interim basis following revelations from WikiLeaks over the summer that the Democratic Party apparatus appeared to actively work to tip the scales against Clinton's biggest primary challenger, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.
US intelligence agencies [EDITOR - WARMONGERS WHO ARE INTENT UPON STARTING WORLD WAR THREE] have said repeatedly since October that they believe Russia interfered in the US presidential election [EDITOR - HA! HA!]. The CIA has assessed that it did so with the intent of benefiting Trump, [EDITOR - TODAY 12/16/2016 MAIN STREAM NEWS IS SAYING THERE IS A LONG TERM FEUD BETWEEN PUTIN AND HILLARY CLINTON] though other agencies haven't gone as far in their assessments. But Trump has so far refused to affirm these assessments.
One World Purple People Leaders
On November 16, 2016 I posted an essay which was actually the conclusion of a three part series, comparing current events with those of the French Revolution and with a touch of Charles Dickens thrown in just for fun.
The concluding essay, entitled: “The Good, the Guilty and the Guillotine”, addressed various national uprisings that began in 2011 and proposed the possibility of an incipient Purple Revolution taking place in America. Furthermore, Donald Trump was compared to the Biblical Samson as one who, potentially, could collapse the twin columns of the political Right and Left before a new phoenix arises from the ashes. And finally, the aftermath of the inevitable forthcoming cataclysms were questioned along with the assertion that no middle ground could be ceded between the opposing forces.Now consider the events that have taken place since Trump’s presidential election victory over Hillary Clinton on November 8, 2016. Since then, we have witnessed riots taking place in American cities that some claim are being coordinated by a wicked trifecta of leftist politicians, a community organizer and a globalist financier who has bankrolled previous color revolutions abroad.
At the same time, the Corporate Media has been relentlessly emphasizing the significance of Hillary Clinton’s poplar vote win which, in turn, has led to an effort to abolish the United States Electoral College in the 114th Congress. Secessionists in California have submitted a proposed ballot measure with the goal of a statewide vote in 2018; the Washington Post appears to be advocating for the censorship of alleged Russian controlled Fake News websites while simultaneously reporting on recount efforts in key battleground states due to “apparent foreign interference” during this year’s election.
Paradoxically, and in a very prophetic manner, the Clinton Campaign warned us two days before the election regarding the impending eruptions of Fake News just prior to Julian Assange’s strange disappearance.
Yes, as the world turns, time’s pendulum swings and current events transpire like the watch of a hypnotist who says you are getting sleepy. Is it possible the global elite could be using the Hegelian Dialectic to soon translate the ever-increasing chaos into order?How could this happen, you ask? After all, Trump won.Yes, Trump won, but he doesn’t now, nor will he, hold the reins of real power. As I have mentioned before, those behind the curtain of the global financial system could turn him into the reincarnated spirit of Herbert Hoover faster than a high-frequency trader’s algorithm can process a sell-order. In fact, just this week, Zero Hedge posted an article entitled “Welcome to Hooverville” which paints this very picture.
The author, Jeff Thomas, states therein: The sense of disenfranchisement of Democratic voters is palatable and it would not be surprising if what we’re observing is the re-election of Herbert Hoover.Like his predecessor in 1928, Mister Trump is a highly successful businessman who has never held public office before and has been seen by his voters to represent a move away from statism. Ironically, his presidency may unintentionally create the exact opposite effect.AndWhat I believe we shall witness in the US will therefore be not only the second half of the Greater Depression, but, in addition, the “Second Wave of Collectivism.” This may well come under what will become known as “the Purple Revolution.”
Think about this. Even if the central planners pulled the plug on the economy in any number of ways, devastating financial hardship would progressively ensue in America and beyond. If this were to happen, can you imagine the vitriolic invective, vehemence and violence that would soon be spewing from those who currently claim Trump is not their president? Now, what about those living in other countries of which Trump really isn’t their president? Surely, the global ramifications of a worldwide economic crisis are enough to cause Herbert Hoover to twist and turn terribly in his grave to the rhythmic rhyme of historical inevitability.
Obviously, in the casino that is the modern economy, the odds favor the house . Trump, of all people, must surely understand how the cards are stacked against him and whatever hand he is dealt, he will need many tricks up his sleeve.And, not just financial tricks.Imagine the media, the libtarded useful idiots and special snowflakes all screaming in disharmony for appeasement in the event of increased terrorism or perhaps even more “lone wolf” knife attacks by refugees similar to what happened at Ohio State this week. They will say Trump is responsible for the increase in attacks because he has stirred up the Un-native Americans and unfulfilled potential immigrants by his xenophobic ineptitude.
Even the seemingly prescient Brandon Smith, who predicted both BREXIT and Trump’s win, also warns of the approaching Ordo Ab Chao and says: Conservatives have been given almost absolute influence over government (or apparent influence); by extension, they also inherit absolute responsibility, whether they like it or not.
So what happens when the current crescendos of chaos build to a cumulative climax? Well, remember, Donald Trump has promised to be our law and order president and he takes the helm on January 20th, 2017. It will be very interesting to see how both the Black Lives Matter fanatics as well as those in the liberty movement view each other when the Donald introduces his new nationwide “Stop and Frisk” policy.There are those claiming Trump has highjacked the liberty movement in America today and others who say he simply gathered up the remnant after the Tea Party died. No matter how you look at it, there are currently a lot of Trump voters scratching their collective heads while taking off their MAGA hats.Since his election victory, Trump has told the world the Clintons are good people who don’t deserve a special prosecutor; said, as president, he will seek council from President Obama; tweeted he was “very impressed” with David Petraeus for Secretary of State; is currently considering Mitt Romney for Secretary of State; has appointed Steven Mnuchin, a former Goldman Sachs shark, as Treasury Secretary and, apparently, has nothing but the highest regard for neocon warmongers like John Bolton and the Bilderberger Richard Haas, who is also a member of the Council of Foreign Relations.Of course, there is more, but you get the idea.
So much for the globalists seeing their days of overwhelming corruption and encroaching tyranny coming to an end.In the meantime, Communist Party protesters are burning American flags in response to Trump Tweets, the world’s democracies are flashing red, the mainstream media is reporting on civil wars within BOTH the GOP and the Democratic Party and some are sounding alarms regarding the “Coming Collapse of the World’s Biggest Economy”.
In the last link above, the founder and chairman of Casey Research, Doug Casey, says this regarding past and future world events: The Social Democratic, Christian Democratic, Socialist, Communist, and similar parties have ruled Europe since the end of World War 2. They’re all pretty similar in that they promote massive welfare benefits, strong labor unions, large state bureaucracies, very high taxes, strict regulations, and an atmosphere of Cultural Marxism. Then, every few generations, the voters react and install a “fascist” regime. These keep most of the socialist characteristics but tend to be supported by, and friendly to, Big Business. That, and they add on nationalism, xenophobia, and militarism.The last time this happened was in the 1930s. In those days it was spurred by the Great Depression. This time it will be spurred by the Greater Depression, plus massive waves of Muslim migrants from the Near East and Africa. So I expect to see more neo-fascist political parties everywhere.
In America today, we are definitely witnessing anti-establishment fractures within the columns of both the Republican and Democratic parties. On the right, it is the liberty loving, constitutionalists and Alt-right against the immigration loving, politically correct, fiscally irresponsible, establishment neocons.
On the left side of the equation, it is the Bernie Sanders national socialists against the neocon globalists and rainbow dreaming one-worlders, who want to sing in harmony, buy the world a Coke and snort it at the same time.All the while, the Globalists are using economic warfare and color revolutions to shuffle the nations into various economic regions of fluid borders. Nothing sparks revolution like war, high unemployment, food inflation and poor living conditions.
After the Roaring Twenties, the payments came due on “Black Tuesday”, October 29, 1929. Following the Great Depression and World War II, the United Nations was born 16 years later, in 1945.
Upon the conclusion of the Roaring Nineties, the planes hit the World Trade Center buildings on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Next came the Patriot Act, the War on Terror and the financial collapse of 2007-2008. Then, under president Obama, we experienced eight years of drift toward socialism complete with parabolic spikes of both welfare and debt.Next year marks 16 years from 911 and, again, I ask, what comes next?
I like what Zman writes when it comes to “Irrepressible Conflict”: A system that cannot tolerate dissent and makes war on anything that challenges it, cannot be made compatible with popular resistance to its policies. The managerial class can search about for tactics and language to try and square this circle, but they are faced with an irrepressible conflict. We either have normal countries with popular governments, responsive to the will of the people, or, we have an authoritarian, technocratic managerial state. It’s one or the other, but not both.
There is a top secret monster known as the Deep State and it has been growing exponentially since 2001. It started out a “Little Shop of Horrors” like the hungry plant that threatened Rick Moranis and then grew like a tumor growing to the size of the Star Wars Death Star now circling Uranus. It operates stealthily under the cover of a complicit media and it thrusts forward, unencumbered.
Consider this: While the mainstream media shills were pointing out the dangers of fake news and while those who stood accused were lobbing their own grenades back into the enemy trenches; a lame duck United States Congress passed the “Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act of 2016” which requires “an assessment of the potential effectiveness, risks, and operational requirements of the establishment and maintenance of a no-fly zone over part or all of Syria”.
If you didn’t hear about this, ask yourself why.
A world war is coming soon, but for now, civil wars are raging. In America, the battles are presently being fought without ammo and ordnance. Nevertheless, it is a war and therefore a fight unto surrender or death.
It is just a matter of time.
MIKE ADAMS: “CHAOS WILL ERUPT ACROSS AMERICA IN LESS THAN 100 DAYS… NO MATTER WHO WINS THE ELECTION”
The clock is ticking for America. There are 70 days remaining until the presidential election, and after the results are counted, America will be a tinderbox ready to explode no matter who wins.What follows is an educated analysis of the political friction now escalating in America. Note carefully that nothing in this article should be construed as any intention to call for violence of any kind. I do reference such acts, however, as part of human history as well as likely outcomes in our near future. What I’m offering here is an analysis and a warning, along with a call to prepare for what’s coming.
If Trump wins, the left goes full terror
As I’ve publicly predicted numerous times over the last year, if Donald Trump wins, the radical extreme leftists go on a violent rampage that leads to the rest of us begging for martial law. After half a dozen cities burn with riots and looting, Trump invokes a national emergency, deploying National Guard troops across the most devastated urban areas, and the radical left finds itself in a shooting war with the government.If Hillary Clinton wins, all the Trump supporters who have been violently assaulted, spat upon and physically attacked by the radical left un-holster their concealed weapons and start shooting back. This quickly escalates into open warfare between lunatic leftist Hillary supporters and armed Trump “Second Amendment” people who basically figure they’ve got nothing left to lose anyway, so why not fight to save America?
This was all pointed out in an insightful reader comment posted to The Burning Platform on August 29th:
With the rise of Donald Trump, the plan of the political elites has been to provoke violence and blame it on him, thus scaring the normal populace. Early-on there were the road-blockings, the threatened riots, the cancelled events in Chicago and Cincinnati, the beatings, the police ordered to “look the other way”…and it has continued: The screaming harassment and physical attacks on Trump supporters as they leave his rallies. The spitting. The intimidation. The thrown eggs. The shoves and punches. The cars blocked and damaged. The hats snatched off people’s heads, stomped on, and then burned on the ground…
The people who support Trump are increasingly well-armed, and increasingly seething with justifiable rage. For now they hold back. Donald Trump himself has repeatedly observed that “the safest place in America” for anti-Trump protesters is at Trump rallies. And that is true. For now (except for the one old cowboy who punched out the protester, he was an octogenarian outlier). Why is this? Why the docility in the face of clear provocation?
It is because Trump supporters understand that any retaliatory violence now will be instantly, widely, and incessantly portrayed by the whorish mainstream media as proof that “Trump is dangerous” and “Trump’s movement is violent” and “Trump invites violence.” So his supporters endure the abuse. They endure the spittle. They endure the shoves and punches. They endure the theft of their possessions. They endure the damaged cars and the incessant harassment. For now, for the sake of their political movement and the candidacy of Donald Trump, they do not strike back…But what happens after the election? It matters not who wins. If Hillary Clinton is elected, by hook or by crook, the mass movement harnessed by Donald Trump will be free to respond to physical attacks.
If Donald Trump wins the Presidency, there will similarly be no reason to continue to endure physical attacks and humiliations by the street thugs of the Democrats. Whether Trump or Hillary Clinton is in the White House, there will be no reason to hold back.Hundreds of millions of guns across America are now in the hands of people who are fed up with being stomped on, ridiculed and marginalized by a corrupt leftist regime that’s destroying America
Do the math on this one: You’ve got 44% of U.S. households that now own guns (and not just one gun each, but several different types of guns). Over the last 8 years, President Obama’s anti-gun rhetoric has resulted in the largest surge of gun sales to private citizens ever recorded in American history. As a result of Obama’s criminal efforts to try to destroy the Second Amendment via false flag operations such as Operation Fast and Furious, more Americans than ever now own battle rifles such as ARs, AKs and PTR 91s.
People bought all these guns for a reason. And they sure didn’t buy them just to turn them over to a corrupt criminal government.The reader comment continues:Whatever happens after this Presidential election, it will have been unleashed by the corporate elites and their servants in the media and elsewhere. They will be responsible for blood in the streets… And many will cheer it.What the author is saying is, essentially, America is quite likely just 70 days away from the start of the next revolution… or even events that could escalate into Civil War.
A Hillary victory would set off an immediate popular revoltIf Hillary wins the election, it’s hard not to imagine some sort of popular revolt across America as the citizens reject the obvious criminality and corruption of not just the Clinton crime family but also a complicit mainstream media. The same media that has funneled millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation also intentionally downplays all the Clinton scandals. The entire system is a corrupt, incestuous, rigged f–kfest that benefits the deceitful plutocrats whom the voters are sick and tired of seeing remain in power.
As world history teaches us, it would only take a tiny fraction of the American people marching on Washington to overthrow the corrupt regime and install a new interim government while arresting the mainstream journalists and calling for new, open elections. So much of America is already at the breaking point now that such a move would very likely - enjoy widespread support from the population at large.
Such actions are far more common than you might suspect in other countries around the world. When the masses reach their limit on corruption and criminality at the highest levels of government, history has shown they frequently march on the capitol, arrest the traitors, and install new officials to run the government. Sometimes, these people end up being dictators or tyrants who make things worse, so such actions should never be taken lightly. Revolt should only be the very last, reluctant option after every legal, democratic method of restoring the law has been attempted and denied.
If any of this sounds surprising to you, you probably need to study world history and read about the French Revolution, the Bolivar campaign across South America, the Fidel Castro takeover of Cuba, the CIA-instigated revolutions of Central and South American nations, the Cultural Revolution of China, and of course the American Revolution. If you don’t know anything about history, then you have no clue how history reliably repeats itself as human populations re-experience the same tyrannies, the same political deceptions and the same inner call for freedom that our ancestors already lived through (or died for).
There’s nothing new under the sun… everything we are about to experience has happened before. (And the Clintons are nothing new, either. They’re the same old corrupt crony tyrants and sleaze peddlers we’ve always seen seeking power to rule over others.)If Trump wins, the globalist banksters crash the debt bubble to unleash mass chaos
Now let’s shift gears and explore what happens if Trump wins the election. The day after the election results show Trump to be the clear winner, radical leftists break out into mass protests across America. But Obama is still in power at this point, and Trump won’t actually occupy the White House until early 2017. So for the remainder of 2016, Obama will open the borders wide open and even encourage as many illegals as possible to invade the USA in a final “mad dash” to the USA.Very soon after Trump takes office, the globalist criminal bankers will deliberately crash the global debt bubble so they can blame it all on Trump. Supported by the lying, wholly dishonest propaganda media (CNN, WashPost, NY Times, etc.), global info-terrorists like George Soros will call for Trump’s impeachment.
Trump, in turn, will likely call upon “Second Amendment people” to defend America against the globalist attempts to bring it down and destroy his presidency. This situation quickly escalates into a variety of skirmishes across America, which might include many events that could seem unimaginable today: Armed patriots taking over mainstream media broadcast centers, leftist terrorists bombing federal buildings, a rash of sudden “suicides” of high-level Trump loyalists, organized gang assaults on local police stations, the United Nations unleashing “blue helmet” troops on U.S. soil, a “surge invasion” of illegal aliens from Mexico during a time of national vulnerability, international cyber attacks on America’s power grid infrastructure, and even widespread calls for states like Texas to secede from the union.
Once the globalists declare open warfare against the Trump administration, all bets are off and anything could unfold over the next few years. Expect things to get very nasty, very desperate and incredibly violent. Life as you know it in America is about to be disrupted in a serious way.
By the way, I also predict that Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Anonymous will all play key roles in these unfolding events, exposing mind-blowing government secrets that spur populations across many western nations into escalating their action against the corrupt government regimes they’ve foolishly allowed to rule over them. Much of the real war taking place across our globe right now is a cyber war… a “war of secrets” where the hackers and cyber activists are increasingly exposing all the corruption and criminality of governments, which maintain their power by constantly lying to the public and withholding the truth. The political establishment as we know it today will not survive intact
When it’s all said and done, if Trump wins the presidency, the political establishment as we know it today will be obliterated on multiple levels. For starters, the people have already lost faith in the establishment system, and if things escalate, it’s not difficult to envision a near future where Hillary Clinton is imprisoned while people like Huma, Lynch and Eric Holder are tried for treason.
Even if Clinton does win the election and occupy the White House, the global end game is fast approaching anyway. A Clinton White House only further encourages the calls for revolt across the population, and Hillary’s deep corruption and criminality is so despised by nearly all soldiers and police officers that it’s hard to imagine her being able to demand respect from either of those groups. In fact, it’s a lot easier to imagine a military coup against President Clinton that it is to imagine a successful eradication of the Second Amendment by her presidency. Even if Clinton ordered police across America to go door to door and confiscate all the firearms of private citizens, what cop would be stupid enough to even attempt such a suicide mission?
I can’t overstate this point: Things are at a breaking point in America, and the only thing holding back a mass revolt right now is the looming election, which presents at least a glimmer of hope to the people of America that they might beat back tyranny and government oppression with a Trump victory. If that possibility is taken from them — either by the election being stolen at the ballot box or already pre-stolen by outrageously biased media deceptions — many of them will conclude that they really have no remaining option other than “refreshing the Tree of Liberty with the blood of patriots and tyrants”, to quote Jefferson.
America has nearly reached the fulcrum of rebellion“We Are at a Point Where the Encroachment of Government Power Has Historically Resulted in Rebellion,” explains this article at The Daily Sheeple (originally from ZeroHedge).
What Washington elites utterly fail to realize is that for many Americans, they have nothing else left to lose if they lose this election. They’ve already lost their job and their health coverage. In many places across America, they’re losing their own national flag and national pride. They’ve been ridiculed, condemned and spat upon by the dishonest media and the crybully leftist f–ktards, and they realize full well that if they don’t draw a line in the sand right here, right now, they’re going to be disarmed, enslaved, impoverished and named “enemies of the state” in the very same country they once fought for (and pledged allegiance to).
The psyche of real America has reached its last straw. With the culture under attack, the Constitution demonized, religious beliefs targeted for merciless condemnation and the industrial base of America utterly gutted beyond restoration, there is nothing left to surrender to the demands of the tyrannical left. It is at that breaking point where, in the minds of many citizens throughout history, they pick up pitch forks and march en masse against the oppressors in power.
We are very, very close to that day in America. It may, in fact, unravel in just the next 100 days. No matter who wins this election, mass violence breaks out across America in one way or another.
Never hope for Civil War… be careful what you ask for
Remember: Civil War would be a disaster for America, which is one reason why globalists like George Soros are pushing so hard for it. We should never wish for open bloodshed and nationwide chaos.
As one voice of reason commented on The Burning Platform page:The last civil war was disastrous for the US – not just in lives and destruction of property, but in turning what had been a truly positive political structure instantly into something much more corrupt. I see no reason to think that another civil war won’t do the same.
Yes, we are being pushed towards another civil war quite deliberately. Resist the push. Figure out the real problem and go after it. I do not know exactly what the problem is, but it certainly seems to be a small group of fantastically wealthy and evil people who are using the rest of us like a sociopathic 10-year-old might fry ants. These people need to be identified and blocked from power. Soros seems to be a prominent person among them, but the various other usual suspects seem likely to be the problem as well.
Questions to ask yourself in all this
How will you feed yourself if social chaos halts food deliveries to your local grocers?
Do you possess a means of self-defense that does not depend on dialing 911 and praying somebody shows up to save you?
Do you live within walking distance of the inner cities? If so, prepare to be overrun by raging, violent, angry extremists who respect no law and actually murder police every chance they get.
Do you depend on financial payments from the federal government? How would you survive if those payments stop coming?
If you own firearms, do you know how to use them effectively and safely? When was the last time you practiced with them, or cleaned them? Do you have spare parts? Ammo? Cleaning supplies? When was the last time you checked the battery on your red dot sight?

The Trump Plot
Curator article posted by Delwyn Lounsbury - The Deflation Guru on the plot against Donald Trump and his election to be the 45th President of the United States. Trump won the popular vote by a slim margin. My take now is that he the populist movement and the Republican party have been handed the BLACK SPOT.
Just like Herbert Hoover presidency; the Don will be inheriting a slumping economy. I call it the Greater Depression which will be three times larger and three times longer than Hoover's Great Depression of the 1930's.
This slump started in 2000 when one divides the measure of the DOW stock market index with the price of gold, the consumer price index or the producer price index. As year 2017 starts, we are at the top of a bull market rally. The next down phase will be brutal and likely last until 2022 and then flat-line for years. There has just been to much fiat money creating, credit inflation and mal-investment.
Hoover was an engineer and tried his darnedest to ramp up the economy during his term. The problem was the liquidation/curative phase had to be born first.
Hoover in spite of goosing the system with new credit and money from government make-work projects also got the black spot. The tent encampments of unemployed were called Hoovervilles.
The elites can now hang the populists with the onus of a crashing deflationary economy and advance their globalist world government by authoritarian dictatorship an hold a progressive/Democratic Party stranglehold on the whole world going forward after the coming collapse.

China Moves Forces To Protect Critical Trump “Witness” From MI6 Assassination
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
A troubling new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS) has, within the past hour, rushed “substantial” counterintelligence and police forces into the Chaoyang District of Beijing in order to protect the life of a former Belarusian citizen named Siarhei Kukuts, who is the Vice President of the World Chinese Merchants Union Association, after they confirmed “credible information” that he has been marked for immediate assassination by Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (MI6)—with Kukuts being more commonly known in the US as Sergei Millian who is now emerging as one of the most critical “witnesses” in the so called Trump-Russia collusion affair—and who was forced to flee to China after the Obama regime, this past January (before President Trump took power), refused to protect him from what he described as “shadowy forces in London” [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]
Sergei Millian (right) remains a frequent visitor to his beloved family in Belarus
According to this report, Sergei Millian has long been known by the SVR (and everyone else in Russia too) as an “opportunistic media buffoon” who over the years has parlayed his American citizenship in the large Russian community of Atlanta, Georgia, into a constant parade of outrageous claims of his personally knowing everyone in global power from Pope Francis to Queen Elizabeth—but whose life was forever changed in July, 2016—which was when he had his picture taken during a 10 second “photo op” with then US presidential candidate Donald Trump—and that only occurred because Millian sidled up next to Trump when he was having his picture taken with fellow billionaire real estate developer, and close personal friend, Jorge Pérez.
Sergei Millian (left) inserts himself into photo Donald Trump (center) was having taken with his friend Jorge Pérez (right), in July 2016
After pleading with Trump campaign officials to give him a copy of his photograph with Donald Trump, this report continues, Sergei Millian then posted it on his Facebook page in order to falsely claim a relationship between him and Trump that had never existed—and was well known to those who knew Millian who described him as being “more of a big-talking schmoozer than a globe-trotting interlocutor” and saying “he’s a self-promoter with a knack for getting himself on television”.
No one in America would have ever noticed the photograph of Sergei Millian and Donald Trump, this report explains, if it hadn’t been for Millian, in late July, 2016, traveling to London—where upon his arrival he was sent an email from a known MI6 operative named George Papadopoulos who falsely claimed he was a “senior Trump advisor”, and wanted to meet to Millian to “talk campaign strategy”.
Known MI6 operative George Papadopoulos
Not known to Sergei Millian about George Papadopoulos, though, this report continues, was that he had served as a foreign policy advisor to US presidential candidate Ben Carson—whose foreign policy team was overseen by the infamous CIA rogue operative Duane "Dewey" Clarridge who was the key figure in the Iran-Contra Affair scandal that nearly destroyed the Ronald Reagan presidency—and after Carson dropped out of the presidential race, saw Papadopoulos volunteering for Trump’s foreign policy team as an advisor in March of 2016.
Important to note about CIA operative Duane Clarridge, too, this report notes, is that he is one of them most vile and despicable CIA operatives ever known—who aside from nearly destroying President Reagan, authored the CIA’s notorious “Assassination Manual” and was criminally charged for lying to the US Congress, just to mention a few of his many crimes against humanity and the American people.
Shortly after CIA operative Duane Clarridge had attempted to insert MI6 operative George Papadopoulos into the Trump campaign, this report continues, he mysteriously fell ill with his rapidly dying from what was said to be esophageal cancer on 9 April 2016—which SVR intelligence analysts state was a “critical event” as Clarridge was overseeing all of the “Deep States” nefarious actions to destroy Trump before he could be elected president.
With CIA operative Duane Clarridge nearing death in March, 2016, this report details, the “Deep State” then decided to turn over their entire “destroy Trump” operation to MI6—and that began that same month, and lasting until July, 2016, with Hillary Clinton’s campaign and her Democratic National Committee funneling up to $12 million to the shadowy leftist American political assassination firm of Fusion GPS who, in turn, then funneled this money to known MI6 operative Christopher Steele—and that immediately after Clarridge died, saw the Obama regime, likewise, in April, 2016, funnel nearly $1 million more through Fusion GPS to Steele.
As to why MI6 would join the “Deep States” operation to destroy Donald Trump, this explains, was in order to protect their “interests” in the Canadian mining firm Uranium One “scheme” approved by the Obama-Clinton regime—that former President Bill Clinton received $500,000 for making happen and he and his wife Hillary receiving another $145 million in bribes paid to their Clinton Foundation—and that President Putin had, likewise, approved as an “exchange” for Masterspy “N” who had been captured by the US—but with the SVR later discovering that “certain” oligarchs were secretly donating millions-of-dollars to Hillary Clinton—and MI6 “interests” being the uranium being smuggled out of the US to Britain that is now shown to be “routinely packed into drums and trucked off to a processing plant in Canada.”
With MI6, therefore, being in control of the “Deep States” operation to “destroy Trump” before he could become president and uncover all of the crimes committed in the Uranium One “scheme”, this report continues, they then changed the “mission parameters” of MI6 operative George Papadopoulos as he could never penetrate into the highest levels of Trump campaign where the most damage could be done—and was a mission well suited to Papadopoulos as, in March, 2016, he was the Director of the Centre for International Energy and Natural Resource Law and Security, a division of the London Center for International Law Practice (LCILP).
The critical importance of noting George Papadopoulos’s working for the London Centre of International Law Practice, this report explains, is that one of this mysterious London law firms senior directors is the Maltese academic Joseph Mifsud—and whom, in Special Council Robert Muller’s “STATEMENT OF THE OFFENSE” criminal charging document against Papadopoulos, issued this week, the FBI designates as being “The Professor”.
Far from being the “The Professor” as so designated by the FBI, though, this report details, Joseph Mifsud has long been known by the SVR to be an operative of the Italian intelligence organization Agenzia Informazioni e Sicurezza Interna (AISI)—with Mifsud, also, being a high official at Rome’s Link Campus University whose ties to Italy’s spy agencies and operations go back decades.
In his duties performed for Link Campus University, this report continues, Joseph Mifsud’s main function is overseeing that school’s Intelligence and National Security Professional Upgrade Course [English] where numerous top Western spies are educated—and with Mifsud reporting that schools president Professor Vincenzo Scotti—and whose dark past includes:
Scotti was one of the most important DC figures in Campania. In the 1980s, together with many other members of the party, he was involved in a financial scandal which followed reconstruction after the 1980 Irpinia earthquake, but avoided judgment due to the statute of limitations.
Together with that of Antonio Gava, his name was mentioned in the kidnapping and liberation of DC member Ciro Cirillo by the Italian Red Brigades terrorist group in 1981. Scotti allegedly met Camorra boss Raffaele Cutolo in the prison at Ascoli Piceno to make arrangements for the ransom to be paid with Camorra money.
Scotti was accused of corruption in scandals regarding garbage management and construction projects for the 1990 Football World Cup, but was finally acquitted of all charges. Italy's Court of Accounts sentenced him to pay €2,995,450 for having the Italian state buy a building in Rome at a swollen price, in order to create cash for SISDE, Italy's secret service. [Note: SISDE was the predecessor of the AISI.]
Notorious Italian Masterspy Vincenzo Scotti
With, at least, CIA, MI6 and AISI “operatives and agendas” swirling around him in the Summer of 2016 at the height of the US presidential campaign, this report continues, “media buffoon” Sergei Millian (who was using Trump-esque hyperbole to bolster his own career) was quickly snared into meeting with MI6 operative George Papadopoulos in London—but who had no “thoughts or ideas” that he was about to become “Source D” in MI6 operative Christopher Steele’s infamous “Russian Dossier” against Trump—and wherein Papadopoulos told Steele that Millian related him to the most scurrilous tales about Donald Trump’s use of prostitutes in Moscow.
Upon Sergei Millian learning that he was, indeed, “Source D” in MI6 operative Christopher Steele’s fake “Russian Dossier” document created to destroy President Trump, this report notes, he quickly agreed to an interview on Russian TV to claim his innocence—but was banned from being shown to the American people, and wherein he stated:
Neither Russia nor I have any compromising materials on Trump, and we cannot have. Such stuff was not revealed.
All that was presented was some doubtful statements of third parties.
This is all a brazen lies and the attempt of some group of persons - and no doubt it is a group - to compromise our president, using my name.

Like Sergei Millian had done before him, too, this report continues, Joseph Mifsud claimed his innocence from being designated by the FBI as “The Professor” by his stating that he has a “clear conscience” and his fervently denying Papadopoulos’s claim that he knew the Russians had obtained “dirt” on then-candidate Hillary Clinton—with his further asserting that he’d had “absolutely no contact with the Russian government” and his further claiming that “I do not know anybody from the Russian government…I am an academic”—but that SVR intelligence analysts state is “laughable” as Mifsud, in 2014, met with Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko in London in order to recruit Russian candidates to attend his Link Campus University intelligence courses.
Italian Masterspy Joseph Mifsud (right) meets with Russian Alexander Yakovenko (left), in 2014, to recruit SVR agents for his Link Campus University intelligence courses
This report concludes by noting that this entire “Deep State” operation to “destroy Trump” has been so amateurishly executed it was doomed to fail before it even began—but with these SVR intelligence analysts, also, admitting that the US propaganda mainstream media’s use of the fake “Russian Dossier” has been so “masterful”, it has deceived millions of American people into believing the children’s fairy tale that Russia wanted Trump to win—which would be absurd to believe as Hillary Clinton had already been “bought and paid for”.

We have never seen anything like this in the history of American politics. Donald Trump’s shocking victory on election night is nothing short of a modern day miracle. Several weeks ago I told my readers that it would take the biggest political miracle ever in order for Trump to win, and I had been strongly urging them to vote, but even early on election night I was skeptical that Trump could actually pull it off. Initially the results coming out of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio looked rather ominous, and a lot of Trump supporters were freaking out. But those initial numbers strongly reflected early voting results, and those results typically favor Democrats. Once the Election Day numbers started rolling in, it was clear that there was a massive unanticipated wave of momentum for Trump.
Once I saw that Virginia was going to be much more tightly contested than anticipated and that Trump had jumped out to a lead in Michigan, I realized that Trump had a really good shot at winning the whole thing. Over Skype I told a stunned audience that the numbers were looking really good for Trump, but it was still so early in the evening that I don’t know if a lot of people believed me.
And I certainly didn’t blame them, because I could hardly believe it myself. Once Trump took the lead for good in Pennsylvania, I knew that it was all over. My wife and I looked at each other in disbelief, and we are still trying to come to grips with a future that we didn’t think was possible. Watching Donald Trump speak to the American people after he had been declared the winner was a surreal experience. At this moment, it still doesn’t seem real to me that he could become the next president of the United States a little more than two months from now. But at this point it looks like that is precisely what is going to happen.
After it was all over, I kind of stumbled around my home lost in my thoughts. I was happy, confused, hopeful, stunned and pensive all at the same time. Like so many others, what I thought I knew about politics turned out to be wrong. But in other ways, the election of Donald Trump has confirmed so much of what I know to be right about America.
Ultimately, it was the American people that decided this election, because the elite were doing their best to absolutely bury him.
Never before has the mainstream media been so openly biased against a major party presidential candidate. For months on end they dumped sewage on Trump, but it didn’t work.
Never before has a major party presidential candidate faced a civil war in his own party on the eve of the election. A whole host of big names in the Republican Party publicly announced that they would not vote for Trump, but it didn’t work.
Never before have we seen a bigger October surprise than the lewd tape from 11 year ago that came out and shocked the world. That would have instantly killed the campaign of any normal politician, but it didn’t kill Trump’s campaign.
From the very beginning it seemed like Trump was at war with almost everyone, and somehow he came out on top in the end.
He beat the Bushes and the Clintons.
He beat the Republicans and the Democrats.
He beat Hollywood and the mainstream media.
He beat the pollsters and the pundits. He beat the never-Trumpers and the billionaire donors.
He beat Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Jay Z, Beyonce, George Clooney, Matt Damon and Lebron James.
He beat the forces of globalism, elitism and political correctness.
He beat CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and Barack Obama.
He beat them all.
Of course Donald Trump is not perfect and he is not going to be a perfect president. But this is about as perfect a moment as you are going to get in American politics.
Donald Trump took on the entire American political universe and he won. We have never seen anything like it before, and I doubt we will ever see anything like it again. And I want to apologize for being so skeptical to those that kept trying to tell me that Trump was going to win.
As a former attorney, I was trained to be skeptical and to look at the cold, hard numbers. And the cold, hard numbers kept telling me that a Trump victory was nearly impossible. I kept strongly urging people to vote, particularly because the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency was absolutely horrifying for me personally, but I was not optimistic. In hindsight, perhaps we all should have recognized that the signs were there.
For example, it seems a very strange “coincidence” that Donald Trump will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old on his first full day as president of the United States. This is a man that appears to have had a date with destiny, and we shall see what happens in the months to come. Yes, there will be great challenges ahead, but those discussions are for another day. Today I am just happy.
I am happy that the American people have elected a man that I will be proud to call president.
And I am happy that we are not going to have to endure four years under the most wicked, vile and corrupt politician that the United States has ever seen. Against all odds, Donald Trump won.
At this point I am not exactly sure what comes next for America, but things are definitely looking a lot brighter today than they did yesterday.

Billionaire Jews Fear This Man and Want Him Dead
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable" John F. Kennedy
“I want to take a knife and stab, stab, stab, stab Donald Trump until he is dead.” Those were the angry words of Glenn Beck, the Mormon talk show host who is a big fan of Ted Cruz for President.
Glenn Beck and wife at a social event. Note the belt symbol.
Now there is a federal law against threatening a presidential candidate. So what did the Secret Service do about Glenn Beck’s threat to kill Donald Trump? They did...nothing.
Three different YouTube videos have been made of nuts threatening to murder Trump, and numerous talk show hosts have uttered threats. Still the Secret Service stands idly by. Meanwhile, Trump admits he sometimes packs a firearm on his person for protection.
However, these threats by “crazies” are the least of Donald Trump’s worries. Foremost are the unspoken ones by billionaire Jews of the “Donor Class” who are determined to prevent Trump from succeeding Barack Obama as President. These evil men have the determination and the means (that is, the money) to end Trump’s career—and life—forever. They murdered John F. Kennedy and they forced Richard Nixon to leave office prematurely. Now, they have Donald Trump in their sights.
In his excellent exposé book, Final Judgement, Michael Collins Piper proved that Israel’s Mossad, hand-in-hand with American traitors in the CIA and FBI, were responsible for the death of President John F. Kennedy
Donald Trump, indeed, has a red bullseye target “painted” right on his back!
Why They Oppose Trump
In last month’s newsletter, I reviewed the ten campaign promises of Donald Trump that had gotten the ruling powers in America and Israel so furiously upset. Chief among them are immigration and trade. The Illuminati global elite are now in the process of using immigration as a tool to bring about a New World Order. Under Bush and Obama, deportations have come to a halt. A surge of illegal aliens is underway, threatening to change American culture forever.
You’ll discover in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion the Jewish Plot to flood America with immigrants and end American sovereignty. (Editors note - Protocols of Zion Premise likely a smokescreen by evil Jesuit faction to foist the blame on Jewish people)
Read the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and you will discover that the mixing of all civilizations and the ending of national sovereignty is of the utmost priority to these evil men. They fear Christian white men most of all, and they want to dilute the whites in America with an invasion from Mexico and Central America. Added to that are the millions of Moslems arriving from the Middle East and the rampant infusion of Chinese, Pakistanis, Indians, and other Asians.
This immigration invasion is at its end peak right now and it will take only a few more years for the Jewish billionaires and their socialist underlings to finish the task.
Congress, the Courts, and the Presidency have proved no obstacle to the schemes of the money-men. Their “gifts” to politicians have easily bought Washington, D.C. Now comes Donald Trump, exclaiming, “No More!” and evidently meaning it. Their plan to bring in cheap labor, reduce the middle class in America to peasantry, and forever end the 250 + year old American experiment of our founding fathers is now at risk of toppling. They are enraged at Trump, as he has excited the white middle class into believing that, finally, they will see justice.
Trump vows to build a fence along the United States-Mexico border and deport all illegal aliens.
Hear That Big Swooshing Sound
On March 27, 2016, this gravestone mysteriously appeared in Central Park in New York City. The epitaph on the gravestone reads “Made America Hate Again.”
Trade is an even bigger concern for the money grabbers. Ross Perot was right. America has heard a big swooshing sound as jobs and factories went straight out the window as a result of the North American Free Trade Act (NAFTA). Today, the miserable Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was signed in February 2016, and is awaiting ratification. It will result in the completion of the dictatorial New World Order—commercial Mystery Babylon (seeRevelation 18). This horrific legislation—an Obama priority—will put trillions of dollars in the pockets of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, General Motors, Nabisco, General Electric, and the other multinational conglomerates. It will bankrupt America and throw millions more out of work. America will be reduced to third world status.
But, hold on, right in the nick of time comes Donald Trump. He’s telling workers about the defects in this monstrous plot of the super-rich. He says TPP is the deal that will finally kill America. He promises to undo NAFTA and every other trade agreement.
Now think about what Trump is saying. The Illuminati con men have spent billions upon billions pushing America slowly into the “Free Trade” lane. They know that little is left of American industry. They hate this nation. They are globalists. The only nation they want to see prosperous and rich is Israel. Now, thanks to Donald Trump, their multi-million dollar trade investments are in jeopardy.
They engineered the U.S. into World War II and about a million Americans were killed. They slaughtered some 3,000 in the 9/11 tragedy. Killing one man—Donald Trump—is a simple task for these psychopathic monsters.
Trump vows to end the wicked cycle of bleeding young men and women in foreign conflicts, then treating them as pariahs back home. Trump may close down the whole mess of VA hospitals and end the incompetency. He is a champion for veterans.
Donald Trump has shocked America and the world by proclaiming “America First.”He says deportations will begin immediately on the day he’s inaugurated. Then will come the renegotiating of the terrible trade deals that have so mangled America. No wonder he has a red bullseye target printed on his back!
Pray for Donald Trump. May he be successful and may he live long. And if he does, and if God, in His loving grace, decides to give us more time to repent as a nation and to jettison the sin in which this nation is now immersed, may we once again cry out with joy, “God Bless America!”
You are a valued member of our end-time crusade for Truth and Righteousness on behalf of our Savior Jesus Christ.

http://ahtribune.com/ Donald Trump: Grandfather Was a Pimp and Tax Evader Father Member of the KKK
Sunday, February 14, 2016 | Subject: Donald Trump Plot
As they say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree; Donald Trump's racism can easily be traced through his lineage.
Most families of enormous wealth have a dark and sometimes scandalous, even monstrous past. Donald Trump's clan is no exception to that rule. His grandfather was a pimp and a tax evader, his father a racist who would in the course of his life, clash with New York City Police as a member of the Ku Klux Klan and then as a wealthy real estate magnate, refuse to rent to people of color.
Donald Trump's legacy is anything but a rags to riches story. His dad kicked the bucket with $250-$300 million in the bank. The man who wants to ban all people of a particular religion from travel, wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth, his was white gold. The only thing more obnoxious than Donald Trump himself, is his family's money grubbing, bigoted history.
Trump's Grandfather: Pimp and Tax Evader
Donald Trump's grandfather, Frederick or Frederich Trump, made his money from operating a decadent restaurant and hotel during the Gold Rush at Klondike in the Yukon.
That's a nice way of saying it.
"Trump made his first fortune operating boom-town hotels, restaurants and brothels", is more accurate, according to the CBC news report, "Donald Trump's grandfather ran Canadian brothel during gold rush, author says". Author Gwenda Blair simply wrote, ""The bulk of the cash flow came from the sale of liquor and sex."
Trump's grandfather was born in Germany, to parents who were employed by a vineyard. He moved to New York City in 1885 where he became a barber. After six years of this, Frederick Trump moved across the United States to Seattle, Washington, where he owned and operated what he referred to as a "decadent restaurant" that was actually called "Poodle Dog" in Seattle's red light district. Interestingly, the name and concept that had already been established in San Francisco. (He named his restaurant after a dog but would later make money selling horse meat) Around this time Frederick Trump became a US citizen.
A Yukon Sun Newspaper writer described his business: "For single men the Arctic has excellent accommodations as well as the best restaurant in Bennett, but I would not advise respectable women to go there to sleep as they are liable to hear that which would be repugnant to their feelings – and uttered, too, by the depraved of their own sex".
Trump moved to Monte Cristo, Wash. in 1894, and then four years later, shortly after the Klondike gold rush began, he relocated again to Bennett, British Columbia. Here he ran the "Actic Restaurant and Hotel". He would next build the "White Horse restaurant and Inn" in Whitehorse, Yukon.
An article published this year by Politico, explains that Frederick Trump sold off his investments and returned to Germany in 1901, as he sensed the end of the gold rush and a subsequent end to prostitution. The following year, he married his former neighbor, Elizabeth Christ in his native German town of Kallstadt. Then he came under heavy scrutiny by the German government,
The country had compulsory military service for men which had to be fulfilled by the age of 35. Donald Trump's grandfather waited until he was 35 to go back to Germany. He had already amassed great wealth worth well more than half a million US dollars, or 80,000 marks. While his town council was eager to keep Trump and his money, who billed himself as a man who "avoided bars" and led "a quiet life", other German authorities had a different plan, the Politico article explains. In their view, Trump had relocated to Germany in order to avoid both tax and military-service obligations.
"...the regional authorities refused to let Trump off the hook. Unlike his grandson, who would become too big to fail in business and, more recently, to ignore in politics, Friedrich Trump was not big enough to get away with being a draft-dodger. He and his wife, then pregnant with Fred, Donald’s father, would not be allowed to resume their German citizenship and it would not be extended to their daughter; instead, they were deported—the same fate that Donald would like to impose on undocumented immigrants in the U.S. today."
The fact that Donald Trump has done so well in the Republican polls is quite amazing, as the party that we think of as conservative, would be expected to shun a man who created exploitative beauty pageants and was born rich strictly because of the nefarious activities of his ancestors.
Trump's Father: a Lifetime of Racist Practices
Donald Trump has often said he made his money "the old-fashioned way," and this is true, in that he prospered from racism.
A New York Times article published 01 June 1927, related Donald Trump's father Fred Trump's role in a Ku Klux Klan brawl that pitted 1,000 klansmen against 100 New York City Police in Queens. Though he wasn't officially charged, Fred Trump was one of seven klansmen arrested during the incident. It probably wasn't very shocking at the time as America's racist practices were in full swing generations after Abe Lincoln freed the country's African-American slaves. In fact the mid-20's saw a peak in KKK activity. Donald Trump would later deny his father's involvement in the KKK brawl in spite of the fact that it happened two decades before he was born. Fred Trump's enthusiasm for racist practices never changed until he was forced to do so by the law.
Presidential Candidate Donald Trump joined his father's real estate company in New York in 1971, and only two years later, the company was served with a civil rights lawsuit that was filed against the Trump organization because it refused to rent to Black people. The Urban League got wind of the racist rental policy and actually sent both Black and White people in to apply for apartments that belonged to complexes owned by the Trumps. What they proved, was that Black people were denied rentals across the board, and only Whites were approved. A Village Voice article by Wayne Barrett, published in 1979, blew the lid off the Trump organization's brewing pot of racist practices.
"Three doormen were told to discourage blacks who came seeking apartments when the manager was out, either by claiming no vacancies or hiking up the rents. A super said he was instructed to send black applicants to the central office but to accept white applications on site. Another rental agent said that Fred Trump had instructed him not to rent to blacks. Further, the agent said Trump wanted 'to decrease the number of black tenants' already in the development 'by encouraging them to locate housing elsewhere.'"The article explains that Trump's reaction was to claim that the suit was a, "nationwide drive to force owners of moderate and luxury apartments to rent to welfare recipients."
"'We are not going to be forced by anyone to put people...in our buildings to the detriment of tenants who have, for many years, lived in these buildings, raised families in them, and who plan to continue to live there. That would be reverse discrimination,' he said. 'The government is not going to experiment with our buildings to the detriment of ourselves and the thousands who live in them now.'"
Indeed, Trump's wild, largely uninformed and unintelligent rants are the legacy of men who walked over the backs of other Americans to gain and secure their wealth. This may be symbolic to the American capitalist way, but it falls short of any form of greatness or real human success. As they say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Bigger Than Atlantic City
Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other. Benjamin Franklin
Guest post by Robert Gore at Straight Line Logic
Millions of words have been written about Trump’s motivations and psychology, why he does or doesn’t say or do this, that, or the other thing. Some find him playing complex games of four-dimensional chess, some treat him as a case of arrested development—no impulse control, filters, or guard rails, lacking a coherent worldview, making it all up as he goes along.
The correct answer is neither of the above. Surprisingly, little of the speculation refers back to what he’s written. The Art of the Deal casts some light. If you want a rough-and-ready summary, read Chapter 2, “Trump Cards: The Elements of the Deal.” Trump is an entrepreneur, businessman, and promoter to the core, which may be why so many politicians and pundits—most of whom have little or no actual business experience—don’t get him.
His book was published in 1987, after a string of successful real estate projects, and brims with optimism and self-confidence. His aphorisms are common sense essentials for success: control costs; stay focused on both the big picture and the details; don’t negotiate without leverage; buy low; use other people’s money to limit personal risk; persist; work hard; be tough; never stop promoting; jump patiently through government hoops; use the media for leverage, and push back hard against perceived injustices. Trump was enthusiastic about his newest venture, Atlantic City casinos. He liked gambling’s bedrock—the odds in the house’s favor—and he liked the glitz. However, the flush of success and the ebullience at the time (the stock market crashed after publication) probably affected his judgment.
Trump defenestration resulted in loss of much of his own common sense and got his head handed to him in Atlantic City. In 1991 and 1992 three of his casinos filed for bankruptcy. They were competing against themselves and had taken on far more debt, much of it at high interest rates, than they could support. Trump had personally guaranteed $900 million and had to sell a yacht and the Trump shuttle airline to reduce his liability to $500 million. It was the closest Trump has come to personal bankruptcy. He also reduced his stake in the financially restructured casinos and hotels that came out of bankruptcy. There would be two more Atlantic City bankruptcies, in 2004 and 2009. (Trump Plaza Hotel, a Manhattan property for which Trump admits he paid too much, filed in 1992.)
Trump is not a political philosopher. Short of revolution, intellectual or otherwise, we’re not going to get a reversal of the statist tide. However, many of his supporters hoped he would apply his business and entrepreneurial sensibilities and the lessons he had learned to governance. Washington is ripe for fundamental accountability, cost control, competence and performance standards, ground-up reappraisal of myriad programs and payments, fiscal reform, and reduction in the debt that’s threatening national insolvency. If we can’t have a revolution at least maybe Trump the businessman would steer the ship of state away from the Category 5 hurricane into which it’s headed Unfortunately, on current trend the federal government will be an Atlantic City, multiplied bigly, not a Trump Tower or Wollman Skating Rink triumph.
For the Commander in Chief, the nation’s troops and arsenal must cast the same spell as glittering casinos and house odds once did on the real estate developer. The military is on a long losing streak of inconclusive or lost wars that have sparked the terrorism they’re ostensibly meant to squelch, created political instability, wounded and killed hundreds of thousands, and driven millions more from their homes. Between the military, veterans benefits, intelligence, and homeland security the US government spends around $1 trillion a year. Nobody pretends this money is spent cost effectively. The Defense Department has never been audited, but estimates put waste in the multi-trillions since the Reagan defense build-up. The first question any conscientious businessman would ask: Why do we keep pouring money down this rat hole?
That’s not the question Trump has asked. Instead, he wants to increase the military’s budget by $54 billion, spend $1 trillion over thirty years to upgrade the nuclear arsenal, escalate old wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and northern Africa, and perhaps start new ones elsewhere. It’s as if, when his three Atlantic City casinos were failing in the early 1990s, he decided to borrow more money and build more casinos. Bankruptcy indicates there’s something wrong with your business plan. You can’t put the Defense Department into bankruptcy, but its business plan is fundamentally wrong, which makes throwing more money its way improvident waste.
Businesses that are losing money often restructure or jettison unprofitable divisions and operations. When they hit rock bottom, they may have to rethink their entire business to survive. When did “defense” of the United States become defense of “US global interests”? Are those interests anything more than US-based multinationals’ profitability, the care and feeding of defense and intelligence contractors, corrupt skims, and the maintenance of puppet governments in every one of the world’s capitals? Surely many, probably most, of the US’s 800-plus military outposts around the world, including some at home, could be closed with no loss to US security. Trump pushed his supporters’ buttons when he asked why the US was picking up the defense tab for Europe, Japan, and South Korea. Does he still intend to put that cost-saving question to them, or has that fallen by the wayside? They are certainly wealthy enough to pay their own way.
The US spends more on its military than the next seven nations combined. Trump’s $54 billion increase is greater than the military budgets of the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan, equals France’s, and is only $12 billion less than the budget of supposed existential threat Russia. Downsize defense, intelligence, and homeland security to the mission of protecting the US proper and you could cut spending by at least half, or half a trillion dollars. That isn’t chump change, even for the world’s biggest and most indebted spender, and the US would still be spending more than China and Russia combined. The US has friendly allies to the north and south, and the world’s two biggest oceans to the east and west. These advantages don’t make the US invulnerable to nuclear attack, but they certainly make any kind of land-based invasion dauntingly difficult, probably impossible. That half a trillion saved, by the way, would offset the half a trillion that the US will pay this year in interest on its debt, the first time we’ve reached that “milestone.”
How long before we hit a trillion? The greatest threat to the security of the United States isn’t Russia, China, North Korea, or Iran; it’s national debt and unfunded pension and medical liabilities.
Again, Benjamin Franklin once said, “Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other.” If Trump continues to throw money away on the bloated and ineffective military, he’s learned nothing from Atlantic City. That’s beyond foolish.
