TRUMP, AND SYRIA: A RANT

It’s difficult for me to write this blog, not because I came late, and reluctantly, to support the Trump candidacy, but rather because in the cloud of bitterness, sadness, and outrage over the missile attacks on Syria, it’s difficult for me to articulate the full spectrum of my reasons, let alone my anger and sense of complete betrayal. In a nutshell, it appears to me that Mr. Trump is within a few decimal points of full-scale, Hillary Clinton type megalomania and insanity, and has succumbed to the same evil spirit that seems to infest all of Washington and America’s national political class. Those are strong words, and I mean every one of them in full measure (and particularly that part about the evil spirit infesting and investing Washington). And I’m just getting started.

Consider, for a moment, the chemical weapons allegations from the Assad regime’s point of view. Its military campaign, thanks to Russian intervention, was going well. Syria was winning. It thus makes no sense whatsoever for the Assad regime to risk the entire campaign by the use of chemical weapons, exposing his regime to the renewal of American and Western aggression in that country by opening it to reprisals.  He had no viable nor plausible military, nor political, nor geopolitical reason to do so, even if he re-equipped himself, or bought, chemical weapons from elsewhere. I’m not alone in this view. Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul has articulated much the same view, as have countless American talk show hosts and commentators, and even the former British ambassador to that blighted nation has weighed in, doubting the whole narrative.

And not just a British ambassador or former Congressman Ron Paul:

In this, Mr. Trump appears to have drunk the Hillary Clinton brand of Koolaid, and gallons of it at that. I cannot help but notice, as have many others, that this action was taken on April 6th, fully a century to the day that another political outsider, and unquestionably one of America’s worst presidents, the disaster named Woodrow Wilson, took this country into World War One. I’m not here to debate the merits or demerits of Mr. Wilson’s decision for war, only to point out how he, too campaigned on the slogan “He kept us out of war,” a nice way of saying “Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo.” Wilson, too, seemed to have a predilection for gallons of Koolaid brewed up in Colonel House’s kitchen. Lest we forget, Mr. Trump in 2013 had some very strong words about plans for American intervention in Syria:

Oh, and let us not forget the plan that was exposed in 2013 in the British press about using a chemical weapons attack and blaming it on the Assad regime…

U.S. 'backed plan to launch chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad's regime'

… and that Mr. Putin headed off that attempt by talking Syria into giving up its chemical weapons and that the UN confirmed that it had (but who trusts them?)…

Some Missing Facts about the Chemical Attack in Syria

…and that Mr. Obama’s Administration apparently accepted that conclusion and that the original chemical weapons attacks back then were subsequently shown to have evidence that they, too, had been planned and conducted by the West and its sponsored “Rebel forces”…

Evidence Calls Western Narrative About Syrian Chemical Attack Into Question

… and that there is evidence that chemical weapons were supplied to the “rebels”(i.e., radical jihadists) by the West, even implicating the aforementioned insane Hillary Clinton and our “ally”, the Ottomaniac Erdogan…

Seymour Hersh Says Hillary Approved Sending Libya’s Sarin to Syrian Rebels

Well, you get the idea.

Naturally, the whole thing is already calling forth a variety of “theories”, one of the most popular being that this was really a message to the visiting leader of China, Mr. Xi Jinping to “do something about North Korea”.  In support of this fanciful notion, we’re told that many of the Tomahawk cruise missiles didn’t even reach their target, that some are unaccounted for, and that there was heavy damage (the West’s story), or minimal damage (Russia’s story), or that there were no casualties (the West’s early story), or that four children died in the attack (Syria’s story). On top of all that, we’re also told that the Russians were warned of the attack, and that they in turn probably warned the Syrians, who both naturally moved their forces away from the operational target (and hence the minimal damage done, according to the Russians), which is a very strange way of “being tough” on “aggression” (What aggression? Syria did not attack America). Stop and ponder that one: “Hey, we’re going to attack you at such and such a time and place with this number of missiles.” Here's one purveyor of that Chinese theory, on, of course, Alex Jones' Infowars:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAQtej2LhMg

 

This all occurred, of course, within the context of massive staff reshuffling within the Trump Administration, with an increase of neocon influence within it, and the corresponding loss of sanity, and more importantly, the complete about-face, within a matter of mere days (by some estimates, two days) from not ousting Assad to missile strikes and the “regime change agenda” being “on” again.

In response, Russia of course has (1) lifted its rules of engagement procedures and protocols that were put into place to avoid accidental conflicts between Russian and American forces, (2) stated, through “pro-Atlanticist” Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev, that this action has “ruined” (Mr. Medvedev’s word, not mine) Russo-American relations, and (3) ordered a Russian missile cruiser to the eastern Mediterranean. (Oh, and let us not forget that all this comes within days of a terrorist attack in St. Petersburg, at a time when Mr. Putin was actually visiting that city. But I digress.) Here’s the links for those points.

America’s Syria strike ‘on verge of military clash’ with Russia – PM Medvedev

Russia suspends flight safety memorandum over Syria after US missile strike – Foreign Ministry

Russian warship heads toward US destroyers after strike on Syria

After the Obamacare “repeal and replace” fiasco (I seem to recall that “replace” was not part of the equation for most Trump supporters although Mr. Trump mentioned “replace” during the campaign), and the signing of the bill to allow corporations to sell private individuals’ browsing history (so much for putting the people first), a disastrous federal budget (disastrous because the question of all the missing money didn’t even enter the picture!), we have this.

So… am I feeling bitter? saddened? outraged? betrayed? You bet I am. For years I didn’t vote at all, because I could not stand nor stomach the fetid reek coming from the serpentine tar pit of the Bush-Clinton-Obama nexus. It took much for me to think that possibly, just possibly, there was a chance to reverse course. But once again the Republithugs have proven they are a fake opposition party, incapable of doing anything to roll back the federal colossus or rein in the welfare-warfare state that Wilson, Roosevelt, Johnson et al. ( and yes, Nixon) bequeathed to us, not even when they control all three branches of government. My opposition to Darth Hillary was in large part because of the ruin and wreck of her foreign policy of confrontation with Russia(while, incidentally, selling it lots of uranium), of her support for “regime change” in Muslim nations like “we-came-we-saw-he-died”-(insert-cackle-here)-and-“what-difference-does-it-make” Libya, and Syria, and the whole covert agenda of funding and equipping the most radicalized, barbaric, and inhuman monsters on the planet and calling them “rebels” and even, on a few occasions, “freedom fighters”, and in general the cackling stench of death that followed her everywhere she went on her slither from Little Rock to Washington.

For the very same reasons, my patience, and support, of the Trump administration is at an absolute, and utter, end.

That's it. Rant over.

See you on the flip side...

  1. I know this is a bit late to comment on this blog, but I have a different take on the piddly strike against Syria that had almost no affect on its military performance. My first thoughts were not so different as Dr. Ferrell’s response, but after stepping back and looking at this from a different perspective I believe future events will indicate Trump has a forward thinking plan.

    My theory is that Trump has a unique way of doing things. He employs a unique thought process that shrouds his true path and it shrouds his thought process and ultimate plans. To believe he has sold-out to the Establishment, and more importantly to believe he thinks he will ever be accepted by the Establishment is totally false. In other words one must step outside conventional viewpoints, and step back from the swirling whirlwind of American talk show hosts, commentators, and the lying Establishment Media.

    Trump has the unique ability to tap into the Establishment’s consciousness where they process information that can make them act out of fear, or act otherwise. The important factor is the Establishment does not fully understand Trump, nor do they understand why they act either out of fear or otherwise. I could cite a perfect example of how this has occurred in the past.

    However, without going too deep into the weeds there is only one important factor to take away from Trump’s approval to accept the intelligence community’s assessment that Syria employed chemical weapons against civilians, and it is this: Trump wants to identify WHO in the intelligence community has an inordinate fear, or hatred of Bashar al-Ashad, and ultimately, an inordinate hatred of Vladimir Putin, which is to say Russia. One important clue is to identify WHO in the intelligence community has an inordinate fear, or hatred of Vladimir Putin, which is to say Russia. We can easily imagine who in history had a similar hatred of Communism, or hatred of Russia.

      Saw youtube version at no cost[excluding computer & internet connection]. This virtual paywall exists for all in some version or another. The system requires money in order to eat, shelter and transport oneself. Unless, you live off the grid; still it is near impossible not to run into some form of an economic apartheid wall, set up by those who have monopolized access points into the system. A system that is inherently anti-nature and in reality, prides itself in its subsequent inhuman behaviors. Ironically, they want to mimic nature; void of any flattery.

  2. When Trump went on TV and said he didn’t want to hurt the Clintons because they were “good people” I got that sinking feeling in the pit of my gut.

    “They’ve got the goods on him” was all I could think of as an explanation. You can call the Clintons a lot of things but “good people” ain’t on the list.

    He had traveled to Epstein’s pedo-island so he is almost certainly compromised. He didn’t go there anywhere near as much as Bill Clinton but it only takes one. At least he didn’t invite a convicted pedo to his child’s wedding like the Clinton’s did.

    Anyway I think he will be allowed to do some of his domestic agenda but the big picture is all about the “reserve currency war”. As long as the USA dollar is the world’s reserve currency they can just print the money and everyone else pays for the American Empire. If the US loses the dominant reserve currency status it is over.

    If Russia, Iran and China agreed to only use the US dollar for international trade they would suddenly become good guys and could kill babies and kittens on TV with sarin gas and nobody would care. You wouldn’t hear anything about it.

    Since 1973 bad things have happened to all countries that tried to sell oil for non-US dollars. Slapped back into line by Saudi Arabia, coupes and assassinations, civil war, invasion by neighbors, sanctions and as a last resort bombed and invaded by the USA.

    As to the fact that China is now part of the Special Drawing Rights (SDR). Nobody follows that. It is just a recommendation. US 42%, Euro 30%, Yen 10%, Sterling 10%, Yuan 8%. Yet the US dollar is used in 66% of international transactions (down from its peak of 72%).

  3. Trump is not warmongering. Trump is going after ISIS just like he said he would.  Plus the big bomb took out some of the drug tunnels built by the bad actors in the U.S.  George Webb has fingered the Awan Brothers congress operation as Pakistani ISI.  Remember Hillary spent almost 2 years and a couple hundred diplomats (American and Pakistani) to set up the Mango Diplomacy which is being used to get some of the heroin into the US via the importation of Pakistani Mangos.  All I can say is, Good Job Mr. President.  Joseph, I believe your rant was premature.  We should wait to see what the next move is going to be by Trump.  He does know what is going on and he has enemies coming at him from all directions.  Proof is in the article below.  Western news outlets are saying only 36 Isis guerrillas were killed….not true.

    This almost seemed like a “false strike” to me (not that I want to dismiss any casualties, and it’s so frustrating we don’t get reliable info readily available to judge something so serious) in response to a “false flag:”

    https://youtu.be/1IPcpDKgjF8?t=4m3s

    which doesn’t make it responsible of course…

    But is this due to Russian technology rather than a lack of effort on “our” part? (I’m watching Dr. Farrell’s interview with Daniel Lizst). I don’t know whether to feel consoled that Dr. Farrell finds this confusing (I’m almost always confused) or very concerned!

    I do know I wish the “deep state” factions backing Trump didn’t seem so desirous (or compelled maybe) to keep so much secrecy about themselves while trying to expose some of the worst about those who’ve been seemingly conducting the overt business covertly for at least half a century. Are they too compromised themselves to come forward and expect public support? Or too vulnerable in other ways in which we could not likely help them if we understood what’s up?

    1. Take heart Dr. Farrell! Bix Weir’s Road to Roota youtube channel has a series of video posts over the past week that really cheered me up regarding the whole situation. I think his analysis is relevant especially with so many trump supporters initially feeling betrayed and bewildered. Listen to his analysis and I think your sore throat and sinus will lessen. Also, take pink himalyan salt and put some in a big pot of water and steam it throughout your personal space — it helps with the sinus cold flu stuff going around — inhale the steam periodically get it into your lungs. Also, Just Cranberry juice diluted with real organic lemon added really helps, as does the essential oil blend “Thieves” in steamer or diffuser throughout your home and especially where you work. I’m 63 ….. lifelong smoker … and what you have been going through with your sinuses etc. is familiar to me also. Take Heart!!!

    1. Rich, A large percentage of the trump voters were voting against hillary, in my opinion. hillary was just a horrible candidate. She was actually more effective in the 2008 election. db

  5. Gaia Mars-hall

    Don’t give up, there is a fight against the #KushnerCoup
    Note Lee Stranahan’s work (he quit Breitbart because he realized that they are working for the coup essentially)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JziI8XQtPL0

    Basically Trump needs to wake up and FIRE Ivanka and Jared.
    “We need to get the Princess out of the Oval Office”
    Fight back
    We lose if we do not fight back
    she is working for Pharaoh

    Call the White House and tell that he was not supported for this evil.

    Fight back!

  6. Gaia Mars-hall

    Yes and here is something to throw up about
    Ivanka Trump’s tweet about Passover:
    “During #Passover, we reflect on the significance of the exodus from Egypt and celebrate the great freedoms we enjoy today! #ChagPesach” IvankaTrump@IvankaTrump

    Yes she has helped deliver the US to the rule of Pharaoh with the #KushnerCoup
    and the plagues of war against the world.

    I am surprised that they did not accuse Assad of using Zyklon-B, but it is the same psy-op from the usual perps.

  7. I cannot reconcile the brilliant researcher you are with the fact that you seem to have invested something with – of all people – Trump. You see so clearly beyond the facades and yet your ranting about a show of power from – Trump. His crocodile tears on TV made me laugh. If unilateral action is now a go we’re all in the schtook.

  8. I don’t know what to say. I know there is a blackmail war going on behind the scenes. I know Trump plays 4D chess, but someone just called check. Just pray it’s not mate.

    I’m going to hold out hope… I have to.

  9. Yikes.. so many comments – shows how much we are all so affected by this.
    I get the feeling of.. We were so close.. The technological disclosures being made over the last 6 years seemed to be spearpointing to actual spaceship technology coming out of the woodwork..
    It seemed as if we were finally going to heal this East West thing.. (which is stupid, we live on a globe, you go east enough you get to the west..and vice versa..)
    It looked like we were going to finally fight terrorism as a real global force.
    It seemed as if we were going to get up into the stars and stop this conflict..

    Then the Syrians blew up some chemicals and everything seems to have disappeared in the wind like .. traces of Sarin. All gone..

    We were (IMHO) fooled once again. The PTBs are slapping each other on their backs, pointing at us and making seal impressions and laughing at how dumb we really are.

  10. I am starting to wonder how much of an effect all of those witches who were putting hexes on Trump last month actually succeeded. No one could be this dumb as to throw themselves under the bus so totally, unless there was some dark magic going on against him behind the scenes. Which I suspect. Yup… the evil is spreading.

    1. They weren’t witches, they were just sheeple following ritualistic instructions.
      They won’t even have understood what they were doing, nor why they were doing it on those nights.
      The Occultists in the PTB (think Collins family) will have been tapping into the energies and symbioses created by that that much intent and desire in order to try to manipulate causality.

    2. kevinxs56, I thought that the ‘witches’ were a cover story for The Donald getting drugged once he was in the White House. If you look/feel at him doing various politician things, he seems very ‘out of it’, with no real emotions shown. Detached. Various drugs have that kind of effect. Placid, instead of fire. If he was not an ‘insider’ from the get-go, he may be ‘under the influence’ and suggestible as h@ll now…

  11. it rips the heart out.!!still hoping there is an ace up his sleeve.false flag? false attack ? .he was very strong in saying he was going to take down isis..i like putin. my gut tells me trump always liked putin .they have the same enemies ..hoping its an ode loop.? i think he is smarter than most people think..some denial here? maybe?

  12. Gillian Grannum

    Here is my rant.

    Timeline manipulation makes the most sense to me. I have been of the opinion for some time that there are 4 potent timelines at play, each jockeying for primacy and control of human consciousness at this very critical point in human evolution.

    The 4 timelines are 1 positive Trump timeline opposing 3 negative timelines.
    The 3 negative timelines that hold sufficient human “belief” (energy investment) and can manifest as earth’s primary timeline are 1) social unrest via Soros type activity; 2) financial collapse and 3) world war ignited in the Middle East.
    These 3 are by no means the only ones. They are simply the most prominent of many.

    Sad to report, the positive Trump timeline is a mere glimmer of its former self. It’s at an all time low, as it gets daily defections of human consciousness jumping off with the skill of trained trapeze artists at the first sign of humanity’s great nemesis – betrayal.

    The trapeze bars holding positive vision in place in human consciousness get spaced farther and father apart until some unambiguously negative event comes along – the kind of self-fulfilling prophecy that fulfills every requirement of betrayal. Then the fall from positive to negative consciousness accelerates as more and more jump on to the matrix “safety net” of catastrophic betrayal, making the disaster more and more unequivocally real with each passing moment.

    Possibilities of events in the Middle East going in a different, more positive direction gained but slight traction once the readily available doubt set in. And the false evidence appearing real – f.e.a.r – got amplified each passing moment until we find ourselves mired on a timeline no sane individual desires to be on while feeding it lustily with our scornful casting away of all responsibility for INNER CREATION as we stand hypnotized by the horror we help create.

    From my perspective this is a battle of consciousness and right now the matrix is winning. Why? We affirm matrix lies to be greater than our Inner capacity to alter matrix reality into that which is positive, uplifted, beautiful and true.

    It’s still possible to achieve. However it will take hearts and minds united in the realization that we are a worthy species. We cast off chains because WE were placed here to do so. We repudiate the lies. We intend with authority. We experience enlightenment and grace when we remember to request it. We could sure use more of both right now as a species.

    1. Excellent ‘reminder’, Gillian Grannum. Not to worry (too much). There are folks out there who DO know this is a ‘consciousness level’ war, and are responding accordingly. There are also folks ‘specializing’ in countering negative-timeline buildup, right-at or just-beyond the SpaceTime boundary. Most of these folks prefer to remain ‘invisible’, so that ordinary humankind will still try to evolve. The situation is kind of like Strider and the Shire…

  13. So many good comments here! Thanks.

    After reading many articles and mulling-them-around a bit, my thought is that the Tomahawk ‘move’ was to lead Trump to the White House door and usher-in Mike Pence as the new President. Nothing else makes sense.

    As a result of ‘winging-it’ with the Tomahawks without due-process, Trump has opened a wide door to Congress for either direct-impeachment or a Nixon-style resignation. Trump knew this, as well as knowing that Assad having no possible reason for initiating a poison-gas attack at this time. The hidden question (which we will never know the answer) is whether this was the plan going-into his Presidency, or whether he just-now found a horse-head in his White House bed…

    With Mike Pence as Pres, the neocons/zionists/banksters will have a rubber-stamper in office. What’s not to like?

    (The opposing thought is that Trump stays, and this ‘event’ was part of a long-term plan to fragment America into 3-5 semi-powerless nation-states. Just keep ramping-up the tensions amongst the citizens, until we have our own ‘Fort Sumter moment’ and fall-apart from within. After that, the mini-states will be easy to play-off against each other…)

  14. I did not vote for Trump – I gave up voting in Federal elections years ago – but I almost made an exception, and I sympathize fully with Dr Farrell’s post. I have descended from near-elation at hearing a candidate say the things DJT said during the campaign, to ‘look, he’s a helluva lot better than HRC,’ to ‘we are probably still better off than we wouldve been,’ to ‘well, f**k, this is no different than HRC.’ The stages of realization for the average deplorable.

    I am off the Trump train, with its dining cars full of neocons and 4-D chess pieces scattered all over the place. I’m open minded in the event I see a turn, and I’m even willing to believe that DJT meant what he said in the campaign (allowing for the normal helping of hyperbole); many and powerful are the forces arrayed against swamp-drainers. But as far as I’m concerned, we are back to the same ol’ DC playbook until I see convincing evidence to the contrary.

  15. Nice rant! My sincere sympathies to those who held out hope.
    I think it’s better to have hoped and lost than never to have hoped at all.
    Unfortunately, it looks like Carlin was right – elections are all about the illusion of choice. Trump said whatever he had to to get elected. He even looked like a real boy there for a little while, but now the strings are showing. Unfortunately, I think it’s worse than just having yet another puppet president. Surely one of the “Trump Op” goals includes discrediting alternative news and lateral out-of-the-box thinking in general. Before Trump I could talk to my more open-minded liberal friends about various “conspiracy” theories and only evoke mild disdain, but now I can’t even go there because THEY fear being branded a modern-day Nazi for even considering such things. I suspect this attitude will last a lot longer than Trump.

  16. The shadows stalking Europe are Alexander of Macedonia and Claudius Caesar. Both Napoleon and Hitler had completed the unification of Europe but both obsessed with Britain and Russia and both failed to consolidate their conquests and unite Europe once and for all. Considering the Americas and Australia were used as trashcans by Europe it’s a wonder that there are any semi-functional governments in these regions at all. You have dysfunctional parents why would anyone who thinks that the children would not be dysfunctional too.

  17. YES WE CAN…..bomb anybody we like. The neocons are rubbing their hands together as it’s back to business as usual. We all thought that Trump was going to be different, well that thought has gone out the door. 42 comments says it all, because we all feel the world is in a terrible mess, and there’s nothing we can do about it. On another side of the story is Mr. Putin, what will he do, maybe nothing or MAYBE something to shock the neocons out of their high chairs, he’s smart and maybe he has something in mind, lets all hope he has.

  18. It’s a pity Heath Ledger died. He could have portrayed Trump as well as he portrayed the Joker.

  19. One wonders if he was just lying all along, or if they got to him. He has several weak spots (arrogance being one), and all the sudden about-faces in the last 2 months are clearly an indication of funny business. He is the fastest turncoat I remember in the White House to date.

    Maybe they told him what they found in Antarctica, or let him in on “the Big Picture,” or maybe there is some part of the end of the quarantine which requires control of the Middle East for some reason. Who knows? At this point we are just along for the ride.

    Although I am also mildly disappointed (I never had a great deal of faith in him, I’ve seen too many elections), it is disturbing that he is doing almost exactly what Hilary would be doing – he is just Hilary with really bad hair now.

    If the neoconlibs make the same idiotic mistake Hitler and Napoleon did and get us into a war with Russia, then we will lose (everyone does against them – they are tough and used to adversity, which we are not), it will be a dark time for the US, and will be the final nail in our coffin.

    I feel we have the East Coast, old money bluebloods to thank for this mess. Through their pudding-headed meddling with our democracy, and the embracing of evil to assuage their grotesque and pitiful egos, they have allowed one of the greatest experiments in human history to go down the tubes. What a marvelous legacy for the ages.

    It would be easy to think that a nuclear war would “cleanse” the Earth, but those slimebags are dug in deep, and it is most likely they will survive to continue their stupid games, so that is not really a solution.

    As usual, we have been lied to and used, and if there really was a faction of the Deep State backing Frump against the neotwerps, they were either too weak, made a deal, or it was all just window dressing. Politics is an abusive relationship.

    It all just reinforces that fact that politics and economics will not change anything. It will require cultural and spiritual energies and a focus on a future of truth, beauty, and freedom. We must not merely stem the tide of darkness, but overwhelm the darkness with light.

    Even if we are forced to participate in the darkness against our will, we can still withdraw our moral and spiritual support for it. That is the beginning of weakening it, and is one of the most powerful things we can do. I think the answers are in a Daoist approach. We need a spiritual bagua (a martial art based on rotation) for the new millenium.

    1. I was going to reply to DownunderET but here is as good a place as any, because when I hear smart people claim there is nothing to be done, it gets my Scottish blood in an uproar. First thing to do; get your health in top order. Start Lugol’s (2007 protocol), stockpile clean AA (vitamin C), and hop on the aip paleo bandwagon. Get out of the cities. Grow things. The entire political system used to grind me to paste in the city. Now I look at the reflecting light on the night sky and shudder that I ever thought a balanced life could be lived in it. ‘They’ only survive and thrive in these places. Get out and reboot your whole-man-instincts.

  20. As C.A. Fitts says, follow the money. A recent piece by Realist News (yewtube channel jsnip4) discussed something Bernanke said a few years ago about everything being ok as long as the price of oil did not rise over a certain level – suggesting that in today’s global financial situation oil could be used as a “trigger event” in a deliberate monetary takedown attempt by the oligarchs who are trying to cover their tracks (and their backs). Now in their minds a nice flareup in the Eastern Mediterranean could be a very handy excuse for accelerating wealth harvesting. With the (now untenable) excuse of “keeping us safe”.

    1. Robert Barricklow

      Fits with the dire warning that Trump is has been set-up to become our Yeltsin.
      Is a fire-sale in the works?
      What am I bid for the Grand Canyon?
      The Statue of Liberty?
      Sorry, but the Congress, Senate & Presidency
      has already been sold.

  21. I’m withholding judgement for now. Trump was always a puppet of a faction of the deep state. He wouldn’t have survived otherwise. I’ll leave the ‘some guy comes out of nowhere to win the presidency’ to the Obama kool-aid drinkers. In order for events to turn in the neocon favor, there must have been an overthrow of Trump’s puppet masters. Possible. But it’s not about Trump. Never was.

    Certainly provides some distractions for the neocons in congress. I wonder what Jeff Sessions is up to?

  22. It is painful but USA + EU are rotten to the core. I don’t think it is repairable from within, thru any politics.

    I think Russia + China and Iran would go for war if it could stay conventional.
    So it is up to “individuals” but those are few in number due to that infectious group thinking and spread thin thru out different continents.

    For the moment I loose myself in gardening and computer gaming to cope with reality, it’s that bad……..

    I consider myself lucky to belong to this community all dough I did not muster the courage to attend last friday’s vidchat, I was too sad, mad about it all.

  23. I understand your feelings. I think by now everybody in this world is sick and tired of the human history full of powerplaying killings of politicians, kings and queens of whoever is in power in whatever country. It makes you sick. It makes you feel human extinction might be the best that could happen to this world. But at the same time you know that there are lots and lots of loving and caring people all over this world in every country and of all colours. I do not vote anymore. I won’t give anybody a mandate to roule my life. It is my life. I don’t need a leader. I don’t think exceptional people exist who should lead the world. The whole idea is rediculous. Look how difficult it is to get a job done with a few people without argument. So the idea that you could lead the world is stupid. Presidents might think they can dictate the world with all their bullets but everybody knows that is not the right thing to do. If you need personal policeprotection 24 hours a day you must understand that you are on a wrong track. So everybody is responsable for his or here own live and deeds. No excuses. You can’t blame someone else for your misdeeds or greediness ore selfishness. And if you want to do good to this world, keep it small. Like love your neighbour. That is the only effective way.

  24. The word “entrainment” was getting tossed around a lot after the election when talking about Hillary’s supporters on the verge of committing harikari after Trump’s upset victory. However I felt back then and especially so now that a lot of the support for Trump had to have been a product of entrainment as well.
    Trump’s campaign speeches were like a Jackson Pollock of hot button issues for the alternative news/research community: just barely splashing on a few key themes but ultimately completely without substance. A community full of people who usually would have sniffed out his B.S. like bloodhounds just lapped it up instead when Trump threw them a bone about 9/11 truth or the cabal of international bankers.
    Prior to Trump, it seemed like people in the so called alternative community saw Islamophobia for the joke that it is. As if the existential threat to Western culture could possibly be a bunch of guys from a backwards culture with nothing to lose who have now resorted to driving trucks into crowds because they can’t even get it together well enough to make a bomb anymore.
    I’m glad these Syria strikes happened only in that they will hopefully serve as the death knell for the utterly misguided support of Trump. The threat to the West is the West itself. It’s the continued murder of innocents in the thousands every year in our global theater in the war on terror that bolsters support for the deceptive, destructive ideology in Islam. And maybe it’s the Western fervor for the return of the Messiah that caused many to anoint a boorish, ignorant bully as the answer to their prayers.

    1. It was the very boorishness of the man — his unapologetic, politically incorrect crudeness — that made him attractive and useful. If he’s reduced now to scheming with the neocons, his deadly candor and therefore his usefulness is neutralized. I just hope it wasn’t as simple as sending a blonde into the Lincoln bedroom.

    2. I remember when the Dealmaker’s star first began to rise at the beginning of the campaign; I told my local circle of fellow Deplorables he was a phony intended to push out any legitimate opposition in either the Republican or Independent parties, in favor of the She-beast. I reminded them of that mysterious phone call with the She-beast just before he declared his candidacy, I implored them to consider why a billionaire real estate developer from Manhattan, beauty pageant owner, and reality tv clown would be so interested in the plight of apple pie America. Of course, as Daryl Davis has correctly pointed out, critical thought went out the window when he began saying all the things the Deplorables had been waiting decades to hear, and in the most politically incorrect manner possible. Then he won, and I was forced to eat some badly seasoned crow. But my opinion never wavered, and it is my contention that the puppetmasters were basically indifferent to the outcome of the election, since, if he was not in on the fix (unlikely), they were betting on his massive ego or the always efficient ‘deal that can’t be refused’ to guarantee his cooperation. A Clinton victory would have been politically simpler since the ruse of maintaining a volatile struggle between the ‘Nationalist’ and ‘Globalist’ factions would have been unnecessary in her case. And we mustn’t neglect the polarization phenomena essential to social engineering, and this election cycle was irreversibly polarizing.

      The prison planet crowd has hysterically put the WW3 and nuclear Armageddon meme into overdrive – the same narrative that was pushed for 40 years during the Cold War. For the same reasons it didn’t happen then, it won’t happen now. Putin is often portrayed as some sort of white knight, yet, even if he isn’t ‘one of the boys’, I cannot see him provoking a nuclear exchange simply on behalf of al-Assad. I think it much more likely that the war fever will be ratcheted up as far as it can be, at which point Putin will step in as the voice of reason, just like he did in 2014, and negotiate Assad’s ouster as a regrettable, but necessary, concession for not participating in global nuclear holocaust. Putin will be lauded as a friend of humanity, and the Dealmaker himself will have made ‘a great deal’. Iran will be surrounded and told to behave or most likely just obliterated with the atom bombs the puppetmasters were wetting themselves to finally get to use again for the first time since Hiroshima.

      Just as an aside, it is instructive to watch the numerous interviews al-Assad has given to Western journalists (in English I might add). There was one in particular with an American from Yahoo news, and it is quite amusing to compare the two – the well-dressed, articulate, yet stolid president of a country ripped apart by a 6 year long civil war, and the bumbling, sneering journalist on his moralistic high horse, noisily shuffling through reams of notes and documents prepared by his handlers at each question in the interview.

      1. I think if more people watched his interviews the narrative of Madman Assad with his chemical arsenal would be demolished instantly. He’s a number of things, cold and calculating definitely, but not mad.

      2. Contrary to someone’s earlier comment, Trump, unlike Obama, not only did not come out of nowhere, he’d considered or taking steps toward running for the presidency since the 1980’s, in large part with this same nationalist agenda. And though his ambition more likely betrays an enlarged ego than any abiding concern for the forgotten American, his recent candor on the campaign trail in no way served the interests of the PTB, some of whom he cited by name as Hillary supporters.

        Yet I never stored my faith in Trump himself — in fact, I was fairly certain he’d lose the election. So his strong, surprising win gave open-minded people reason enough to hope, if not to believe, that the coverts who opposed Hillary were strong enough and wise enough to keep their “soft coup” rolling with a now-President Trump. In any case, it’s stretching credulity to assert that the PTB and their fake news mouthpieces were indifferent to having been called out by name or otherwise stigmatized as the globalists they are — let alone that they engineered this to be so. The vote recounts, the staged demonstrations and the biased media’s self-incriminating onslaught should not be so soon forgotten.

        The media were pushed to such extremes, in fact, in their attempts to undermine Trump that those who might have been prevailed upon by his anti-globalist message surely have been. Let’s just hope Millennials and the younger Generation Z were paying attention. As I understand it, even their YouTube teen idols (PewDiePie) were censored by the PTB.

        Trump at least told those frogs who listened that the waters are now simmering. This can’t be untold. Putin may soon drop truth bombs all his own, whether he retaliates militarily or not. Or perhaps a “natural” disaster will strike isolated Russia, or another car swerve “out of control” as Putin’s approaches. But only if Trump is made to reverse his policy on accepting masses of Syrian refugees, will the waters surely boil.

        1. I apologize, Daryl Davis, for mischaracterizing your comments. I would redact my statement if possible. You are absolutely right, of course, Trump and the Deplorables were a bolt out of the blue for the PTB. The PTB are, after all, fairly new at this social engineering business, and the racial and religious antogonisms that seemed to suddenly appear in the midst of the Western multicultural utopia were a complete surprise that shocked everyone.

          1. No, I should apologize. I was talking past you rather than directly responding to your comment. I wanted to point out that the deep state had failed in so far as Trump’s candidacy forced them to reveal strong links to their puppet media. I do realize they’ve been engineering things for a long long time. But I don’t accept the assertion that they’re particularly good at it. Religious and other social lines have divided us poor frogs for millennia — starting from within our own families, not just among our respective nations. To ascribe to them such a power to divide us is to grant them far too much credit. They merely appeal to our preexisting, innate predilections — the desire to “kick ass”, to “save the world”, to exact “justice”, etc. But many of their appeals, particularly the modern ones, are so crassly carried out — with self-demolishing buildings, wildly-manipulated market moves, timely WMD attacks, etc. — as to be instantly apparent.

      3. Robert Barricklow

        I wouldn’t be too sure of Putin.
        There are scenarios that will play out before the bombs drop. But drop they will, if madmen think all they have to do, is do as they please, come what may. There are consequences.
        WW1 & WW11 were strictly about the business of power and money; NOT survival. At least in the minds of those that controlled the purse and subsequent strings of their paid puppets.
        Now, we have some in power that aren’t on the paymaster’s roster[at least hopefully, not under the puppet master’s whim].
        Madmen would take the gamble; and that’s where joker comes along and levels the playing field.
        Or, perhaps there’s a cousin “out” there, or two?

        Don’t bank on it.
        Banks can’t be trusted, but they can be counted on to steal, as long as it pays.

  25. I’m curious to see if Trump will have any more rallies. I think he dare not as now he will have deplorables protesting him outside (including myself if he comes to my neck of the woods). If he does have a rally, he will have to do a Hillary and bring in paid supporters. (Amazing how these two dyed-blond billionaires in pant suits have just morphed into one another).

    I imagine many progressive cult members will take their cue from their handlers in the televised media owned by the defense contractor (MSNBC) and the state run media (NPR) and all those other Operation Mockingbird brainwashing outlets and now back off Trump (if not even praise him for rescuing those Syrian children). They will re-focus their attention on their cultural marxist agenda which has been galvanized under Trump, although Trump may continue the role of fake opposition whipping boy in order to further empower their agenda. Another ingenious ploy from the get go I suspect. I even wonder if all those neo-cons who cam out against Trump during the campaign were doing so just to trick us into voting for Trump? The thinking being— if these loathsome creatures are against Trump, he must be good. How can we simple goyim even counter such deviousness?

    It all came crashing down for me when I saw the news story that Trump may have ordered the attack after a plea from Ivanka on behalf of the gassed children. That’s when I knew the Trump train was really the chump train and we had been had. Straight out of the propaganda playbook. Immediately after the plea Ivanka went shopping no doubt. The missile attack truly was the dagger in the heart of the already demoralized deplorables… and maybe this was the psyop all along. Stomp on that last shred of hope we had. Now the world is hopeless again (although I for one was inspired by the congressman who questioned the narrative). Change is impossible. Sit back and enjoy the reality show called war racket while slowly killing yourselves with drugs, alcohol, depression, self-hatred of your white skin, financial stress, and the poison we are putting in your food, air and water which you can do nothing about. Consume. Be silent. Die.

    1. The ludicrous positive spin I will put on this, and I can’t help being influenced by Trump’s exceptional astrological chart, is that Trump is playing the triumphant military leader gambit a la Napoleon, Scipio Africanis, Julius Caesar, etc. as nothing consolidates power more than military victories. Being an intelligent guy, he probably looked at the situation, recognized that the US is the globe’s military juggernaut that just hasn’t been used to its proper potential and, if marshaled correctly, could steamroll over these hot spots with ease. He takes out ISIS, Assad, and Kim Il Jong (with our military that spends as much as the next ten nations combined) and he can then virtually declare himself emperor of the US and deal with the domestic issues of the US, including the deep state, with the full blessing of the American people who will be tossing him garlands and naming their children after the Donald. It would take a brilliant, egomaniac who wants to be king to do something like this… and that is what Trump’s astrological chart says of him.

        1. I watched the video with interest, thanks for link, VB. I know a bit about Western astrology. Enough to be a hazard to myself, for the most part, and not so much about Vedic. Its interesting that both systems see the power and possibilities in Trumps chart, although almost every astrologer I checked out thought that Hillary would win(steal). Political bias, I think colored their interpretations. With the eclipse this Aug over the US and triggering Trump’s natal Mars and ascendant it should be an explosive situation. Assassination, bombs, Trump’s hair will catch on fire? Seems there will be too much fire for it not be significant.

          1. Very similar celestial circumstances this summer as were in the sky during the French Reign of Terror.

    2. Good point Cate. I do believe everytime they are about to grab the brass ring they get cut down. Just the laws of the universe.

  26. DT surrounded himself by the usual suspects – it was the biggest clue that he would comply with his over lords once in office. Even Farage has been scathing and condemned his actions re Syria.

  27. What is surprising to me is all this surprise. Time seems to be accelerating; so this oligarch manoeuvering will soon burst like a bubble.

  28. “In this, Mr. Trump appears to have drunk the Hillary Clinton brand of Koolaid,”

    Right, that Trump is a jingoist isn’t news. And he has the same, or more extreme, Wall Street ties as Hillary Clinton–Wilbur Ross, really now. He’s an extreme crony capitalist.

    Trump always promised to replace Obamacare with something better, of course he can’t admit that the obvious better option is strong single payer medical insurance, like that in Canada, well and most of the rest of the developed world. Hillary had similar inabilities to admitting such.

    Regards Syria, Hillary Clinton would have been worse, she’d not have warned the Russians the missiles were on the way and where they were going.

    But now, like George W Bush, and Obama, Trump is a war criminal who committed an illegal act of war. Was expected. And the carrier group heads toward the Korean peninsula…

    1. “Trump always promised to replace Obamacare with something better, of course he can’t admit that the obvious better option is strong single payer medical insurance, like that in Canada, well and most of the rest of the developed world.”

      That’s been my position for years but it will never happen because big insurance owns to much of our society. Also, the costs are out of control and will continue for the foreseeable future as more and more hospitals, etc. continue to go private. I’m glad my days are numbered… going on 76 years of age. db

      1. Don B:

        US for profit medical insurers are really only an invention of the last 35 years, prior to that most insurers were big non-profits.

        Canada has plenty of private hospitals.

        Also, for profit hospitals in the USA are also only an invention of the last 60 years or so.

  29. I dont believe there is a 3D or a 4D chess move that justifies a possible global war.

      1. Let’s hope Putin possesses numerous details in that regard — and that he keeps these at a dead-man’s-switch readiness. Members of the deep state who’ve thus far aided Trump should harbor such details as well. But are they yet willing to risk detection by the neocon killers who may have now neutralized Trump (assuming he hasn’t simply been replaced by a compliant clone) by sharing these sordid facts with the public? Frankly, I’ve found it disappointing how coy Wikileaks seems to have become both in this regard and in general. (Why release 1% at a time? Is the world now so safe and stable that the other 99% can wait?)

  30. I am no good at geopolitics. I know of this french site, and the owner, Thierry Meyssan, is openly pro-russian and pro-syrian : I noticed that he repeats (in french) exactly what he writes, during the talk with the Pravda reporter : is this a valuable hint ? Again, I am no good at this :

    Donald Trump asserts his authority over his allies, by Thierry Meyssan
    http://www.voltairenet.org/article195904.html

  31. I’m extremely disappointed in President Trump as well. Clearly he’s bright enough to have had strong doubts concerning the Syrian gas story and bold enough to have berated anyone who presented it to him. I’ve concluded therefore that he was either given “an offer he couldn’t refuse”, e.g. threats against himself, his family, or innocent Americans; or he struck a Trumpian/Faustian bargain with the PTB, a deal that would, were it honored, move his domestic agenda through their bought-and-paid-for Congress — perhaps even with a Trump-pleasing promise to finance it , or at least the ME interventions themselves, with the newly-secured oil and gas revenues.

    But how he now bears the grins he’s put on the faces of neocon ghouls like Bill Kristol, Hillary Clinton, Lindsay Graham and John McCain, to say nothing of his former fake news opposition, is beyond me. I do believe he was sincere, pre-election — hell, pre-Tuesday — about his opposition both to regime change and to endless war generally. And I worry now that the remainder of his presidency will be entirely fake. (Where have all his Twitter outbursts gone?)

    But at least it’s a settled matter now: No one, no matter how brash or rich, can thwart the deep state — not in the West, anyway. I still have a sliver of hope that Putin will prove himself more resourceful than any neocon hubris could foresee.

    1. I say Amen to that also. Thank you Joseph for articulating this utter mess so well. So terribly sad.

    2. Daryl pretty much sums up my thoughts as well. Smart enough to see through it, strong enough to stand up to them….or so I thought. So what happened? And, yes, I felt this was humanities last chance to potentially extricate from the Octopus, too, or at least chop off a few of its legs. Guess not. “Brilliant move to show China who-is-who and get them to round up their “boy” in North Korea,” be damned. I’m not buying it.

  32. Well after all, he is a vain billionaire NYC real estate developer who sold his daughter to the Lubavitcher kosher nostra to get himself out of bankruptcy, so no wonder he sends the crown prince in J. Crew to Iraq to survey the slave legions, and continues the neocon policy …
    (W: “Dad, what’s a neocon?”
    GHWB: “You want names or description?”
    W: “Description.”
    GHWB: Israel.” )
    … of wrecking the Middle East (and the US too, let’s not forget 911) for MIC fun and profit, Israeli Lebensraum (aka Eretz Ysrael), and a Kuwaiti pipeline using lies, false flags and that good old via deception thou shalt wage war (see: Yinon Plan, Gen. Wesley Clark, who is behind Continuity of Government, PNAC, etc.).

    Anyway, you have to admit, the election was, for once, entertaining. Were you not amused? I was shrieking with laughter day after day. Never saw a better one, and it exposed the tawdry sham for what it was, and we finally got to see the Zappa’s brick wall at the back of the theater.

    What else can you do but laugh when the empire has blown right through the Roman decadence of having the emperor appoint his horse to the senate, and where any number of true horse’s behinds are US Senator? And keep getting re-elected?

    Anyway, the US has been completely played, and has been for decades. It was a hail Mary that was intercepted, but both teams work under the same governing body, Fiat debt slavery.

    1. Sorry there’s no evidence that the Kushner family bailed out Trump.

      Plenty of evidence that Wilbur Ross bailed out Trump, but that doesn’t exactly fit your preconceptions, well it sort of does given where Ross worked, but doesn’t involve marriage.

      Hum, what cabinet position does Ross hold.

      1. Despite my preconceptions, I nonetheless seem to be one of the few who is unsurprised.
        The sold bride was metaphorical. It was a dynastic marriage, a corporate merger of a marriage, or perhaps most fittingly, a leveraged buyout of a marriage. And the in-law now runs most of the US domestic and foreign policy. QED.

        1. And so far that son in law is not urging war on Muslim nations world wide, so very unlike Bannon, and also unlike Hillary Clinton.

          I’m sure the son in law wants to keep his tax benefits though, as does Ross.

    2. basta, great truths. Keep ’em coming…

      Interesting to see what Lost popped-back-up on: Sep 11 and Kushner. Hmmm, what do those have in-common with “By deception shall you do war”?

      1. Jared Kushner is just another in a long line of mossad honey pots who target dynastic families for infiltration. I’m sure this trick goes back to the dawn of human history. The female ones are well know like Esther queen of Persia. I’m sure there are plenty of semitic gigolos as well from ancient history. I imagine there is probably some professor at Tel Aviv university who teaches a course on it. Remember Caroline Kennedy’s husband Edwin Schlossberg? I’m sure he kept a notebook on the extended Kennedy family holidays to keep tabs on what the family was talking about regarding the assassinations and who they were meeting with on the sly. Then of course he could always suggest friends to manage their money. And then there is Chelsea Clinton’s nebbish husband, Mezvinsky… It doesn’t stop. These people(?) got a playbook that is thousands if not millions of years old. And they also have the advantage of being able to plot in secret in the netherworld. Its hopeless. They can’t be defeated, just learned from. They are the teachers who instruct us through their wickedness to reject the mundane world for the spiritual.

        1. “And they also have the advantage of being able to plot in secret in the netherworld. Its hopeless.”

          I needed that. hahahaha

      1. Phil the Thrill

        Yes! Thank you, Kahlypso. I am reminded of the words of the inimitable Jim Carrey (in a fabulous commencement speech given at MUM, view-able on you tube): our eyes are not just viewers, they are projectors as well.

    1. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/this-is-how-much-it-will-cost-to-replace-the-tomahawks-used-in-syria-2017-04-07

      We had such high hopes when Tillersen was appointed.. He already had a WORKING relationship in place with Russia.. It should have worked..

      But then…. As soon as Kissinger sidled up alongside Trump just after the Election.. It was over. They probably killed off the Orang-a-Trump and replaced him with a hologram.. or spoke his triggers and MK’d him back into place as a useful puppet.. or He might have done something more than grabbing them by the…. when he was on Epstein’s Island…

  33. Dr. Farrell,
    I couldn’t agree with you more. Thank you for putting into words my disappointment as well.
    Regards,
    Jim
