President Trump’s abandonment of his base and embrace of so many things
he campaigned against is beautifully captured in this essay by Bill Bonner.
Rather than draining the swamp, Trump was able to restock it with generals
and billionaires who have quickly gone “full empire!” The National Security
State is scheduled for an infusion of $58 billion more to boost our global
interventions and accelerate the exact policies that have failed miserably
with the last several Administrations in ways candidate Trump warned against.
Bonner along with Ann Coulter, Michael Savage, Jeff Rense and countless millions
of the less famous are expressing their disgust with the new president,
especially with regard to his aggressive foreign policy.
It was his pledge to put America First and eschew our addiction to endless
wars for regime change that captured my interest. I saw Hillary as corrupt
and unworthy of holding high office for her hawkish ways and sick gloating over
her role in the death of Gaddafi. Calling Vladimir Putin the next Hitler was
also an egregious display of ignorance and hyperbole.
I did not vote for Trump even while praying he would defeat the former First Lady.
But almost immediately it became clear to me what his true agenda would be
because of his November 11th speech in which he said Israel is “a beacon of hope
to the world!” https://tribune.com.pk/story/1228090/trump-hails-israel-beacon-hope/
America First yes………but only after Israel was protected and the Zionist dreams
of Bibi Netayanhu were fully augmented with the eager support of Jared Kushner.
As Bonner documents, it took less than 3 months for the nimble Trump to shift his
public agenda by escalating the war in Syria based on an obviously false flag event
that benefits the goal of forming Greater Israel. Right on cue, enter the Rothschilds
to implore the West to finish the job: http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=71125
All of this reminds me of George Orwell’s Animal Farm: “all pigs are equal except
some pigs are more equal than others” and his 1984 world of “perpetual war for
As Gerald Celente says, we have a military takeover of the government which appears
to be going “full empire” for Pax Americana and global hegemony with Trump at the helm
and his Zionist backers urging him on.
With the left strangely supporting his use of force and berating the few in their party who
reflect an anti-war perspective, it will be interesting to see how the political alignments
shift in the months ahead. http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=71103
I repeat my mantric call for a new political party to dispatch the two wings of the War Party that dominates Washington and their Imperial ways: http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=68524
“Full empire” will not work for Trump any more than it did his predecessors. His show of force around the planet is not scaring anyone. As Coulter explains, this is a sign more of weakness and the desperate last gasps of a dying hegemon rather than an intelligent application of the military.
We need a dramatic transformation of political consciousness and the restoration of the rule of law. Hopefully that will emerge soon and that a transpartisan coalition will form to restore peace and sanity.
