Henry Kissinger has re-emerged in recent days as a major foreign policy
advisor to president-elect Trump:
The real question is “Did he ever go away?”
We know from her comments that Hillary often spoke with him when she
was Secretary of State. During the campaign, Trump said several times
by way of contrast that he would not look to Kissinger for advice.
Yet here he is again at 93: a true “elder” statesman or an old meddler in
the affairs of the country and the world?
For those who distrust him and prefer a less interventionist foreign policy,
it is way past time for this man with a checkered past to move on. Even if he
brings a level of stability and “realism” to the Trump team, his appearance as
a top-level advisor raises serious issues of the new president’s credibility.
If you are determined “to drain the swamp” that is Washington, D. C., why look
to someone like Henry Kissinger who is considered a major alligator in that murky
realm of slimy creatures who inhabit the Capitol?
If you are so comfortable with an older voice, how about calling on Ron Paul for
input on how to deal with the rest of the world. Paul is someone who represents
the values Trump articulated during the campaign. He has none of the links to
the Council on Foreign Relations or the Rockefellers and other Globalists that
Trump spoke so negatively about in order to win.
It is difficult to get past the conclusion that The Donald is just a shrewd wheeler-
dealer businessman who, like the other politicians he frequently disparaged, will
say anything to get elected and then do whatever they want after being elected.
Is that true of Trump as evidenced by his new pal, Kissinger, who apparently influenced
his choice of Rex Tillerson to head the State Department? Are we just seeing the
same old wine poured into new bottles to fool the American public?
I guess we will have to wait and see………..but it sure looks like it to me.
