For all that LaRouche is regarded as an extremist, a crackpot, a paranoid egomaniac, a cult leader and all the rest, time after time I find myself agreeing with a heck of a lot of stuff from him and his people. Or at least thinking, "Well, I'm not sure but this is at least more plausible and credible than anything I've seen from other sources, especially the mainstream media."
Much of the more esoteric stuff makes me step quickly away but when it's just nuts and bolts, bread and butter, political analysis and comment, I nod my head a lot. _________________ My real name is Gerry.
The Trump-hate and outright lies in the NY Times and FT have reached an incredible crescendo. Even FORBES seems to have joined the chorus.
Perhaps the Anglo/American/ECB evil usury empire is on the way out? I think their greed undid them once before, but it was back in the 14th century from what I am told. BTW, the same usury criminals are still in charge, just a later generation of them.
I can't recall when I have ever felt so hopeful/excited.
The usury banking master criminals seem ballistic about taking Russia, so far their criminal empire (aka EU/ECB) extends to the Russian border with the exception of Ukraine and Belarus(?).
I thought the criminals have owned Russia since 1917, or maybe not now? It is getting confusing. What do the criminals want us to believe about it? What is the reality? Why did Putin sign onto FATCA? ???? Do we recognize an MO here regarding nations who threaten to 'leave the fold' of US$$ supremacy?
As in what they did to Hussein and Ghadafi?
The “Resistance” has morphed into the “Lynch Mob.” Having successfully been gaslit into believing Donald Trump is everything from a bad joke to a Russian spy, the Progressive left in the U.S. are embracing all the totalitarian impulses their grabby little hands can find as they climb the Cliffs of their Insanity to remove him from office.
This putsch is orchestrated by a now open conspiracy of members of FBI, CIA, MI-6, DNC, the U.S. corporate media and Trump’s own staff in the Oval Office as evidenced by the recent and infamous New York Times op-ed.
This expose from a Trump staffer reads like a cross between the Neoconservative Manifesto and a Little League parent complaining his kid doesn’t get enough play time.
My bet’s on Lil’ Miss AIPAC, Nikki Haley, but maybe that’s just because I hate her.
The sheer crudity of the thing was embarrassing to anyone who makes their living crafting words. But, when constructing a narrative built on a lie that lie only has to be one IQ point higher than the average target audience to get the intended response.
And since it’s demonstrably true that the more people gather into groups the dumber they get….
Well, ok, that rules out Haley.
So, while David Brock and George Soros openly pay people to protest on Capitol Hill, Alex Jones personally confronts his tormentors speaking inconvenient truths to power. So, they finally banned him completely from public sight.
From the outside the opera of American politics must look like someone threw a stink bomb on stage while the fat lady was singing.
All of this is undermining the faith in the U.S. political system.
And while to a libertarian like myself this is definitely an occasion that warrants a big bowl of popcorn, it should also loosen your bowels a little.
Like all good comedy should.
Because the world financial system is predicated on confidence, specifically confidence in U.S. institutions. Because confidence in U.S. political and financial institutions is the basis for global confidence in the U.S. dollar and by extension that confidence forms the backbone of the entire world economy.
Currencies are a reflection of confidence in the governments which print them. So while people starve in Venezuela “The Lynch Mob” screams “capitalism is failing” from their custom-colored iPhones.
Financial markets look calm today but they aren’t. Global capital is confused. A rising U.S. share market is a mix of the good from Trump’s reforms and a loss of confidence in his Presidency.
Capital doesn’t know whether to jump East or West. This is why the euro refuses to collapse. At this point all capital knows is that the emerging markets which made them a lot of money in an age of zero-bound interest rates on the dollar are no longer sustainable.
So, they are all crashing at the same time.
The fuse has been lit on debt bombs sitting on the balance sheets of insolvent European banks.
And when that bomb explodes, it will expose the nakedness of the Emperors of global institutional confidence – The Federal Reserve, The European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
And all of that capital that flowed out of the U.S. and Europe over the past decade searching for yield in a world where risk was suppressed to save the banks is coming back like a Tsunami.
And guess who’s ox that gores?
The people who stoked and cultivated The Resistance to climb up those cliffs of Fortress America to destroy Trump.
So, while to the “Lynch Mob” Trump’s presidency may seem like a bad joke, the punch line is if they are successful at destroying Trump by illegally removing him from office, they not only destroy America by causing a Constitutional crisis but likely take the entire world economy with him by causing a Constitutional crisis.
And in the end no one profits from this. You only survive it.
At this point no one in the power circles of D.C. are thinking much farther than the end of their nose and the size of their lobbyist kickbacks. They want the gravy train to keep chugging along and protect themselves from their corruption being exposed to the world.
Their weakness is being exploited by people like Robert Mueller to isolate Trump, leave him without competent legal representation and force him through sheer force to resign in disgrace.
But Trump truly is a Joker figure. He’s 1) too smart for that and 2) too damn stubborn to give in. He knows they have nothing of substance on him. He’s masterfully destroyed the media’s credibility while endearing himself to those that value the military, police and first responders which in their minds keep the lights on and the roads safe.
The question is whether there are enough of them left on his side to hand him the majority in the Legislature he needs to avert the Constitutional crisis Mueller et.al. are setting up.
So, the narrative today shifts to Trump being unfit for the job by spreading rumors and innuendo. That’s what they have been reduced to. Even if some of those things are true, we don’t care.
We elected Trump to Drain the Swamp. We didn’t need the sordid details of how he was going to do it.
It was plainly evident to a majority of Americans that the drama on Capitol Hill was closer to an episode of Arrested Development than The West Wing.
We simply knew inserting our own Michael Bluth into the mix would allow the insanity burble to the surface for everyone to finally be okay with tearing it all down.
The problem is, however, The Lynch Mob has lost their sense of irony.
So, now the laughs are all canned because this show ain’t funny anymore.
That Trump has been forced to surround himself with Israeli-Firsters and literal scumbags (or do I repeat myself) like Nikki Haley, Mike Pence and John Bolton is a testament to just how deep The Swamp is and how powerful the bureaucracies they control are.
While Trump has made some strides in improving things domestically, the big foreign policy breakthroughs have been cordoned off from him at every turn. It is obvious that many within his administration act independently and undermine him whenever they can.
The true believers of neoliberal interventionism are the ones driving the foreign policy bus off that same cliff the Lynch Mob is climbing. And that’s where this whole sordid mess comes crashing to a very ugly, chaotic conclusion.
Because the Neocons and their European counterparts, like The Lynch Mob, refuse to go quietly into the annals of history. They are still suffused with their Trotskyite dreams of world domination and revenge against the dirty Russians who betrayed the revolution nearly a century ago.
They are still aligned with the rapacious psychopaths in the financial centers that nearly destroyed Russia in the 1990’s. And they want Trump gone to continue their plan of Russian and Chinese subjugation via U.S. dollar and military diplomacy or they’ll start WWIII.
And that’s a joke that no one wants to hear the punch line of.
The following is extracted from a hit piece on Trump,
but it shows that media sources and even Woodward's
book all confirm Trump's relentless behind-the-scenes
battle against the neoliberal warmongers in DC:
Trump folded his arms and declared, “I want to get out.
And you’re telling me the answer is to get deeper in.”
In a meeting with his national security team in the summer of 2017, in which Secretary of Defense James Mattis recommended new military measures against Islamic State affiliates in North Africa, Trump expressed his frustration with the unending wars. “You guys want me to send troops everywhere,” Trump said, according to a Washington Post report. “What’s the justification?”
Mattis replied, “Sir, we’re doing it to prevent a bomb from going off in Times Square,” to which Trump angrily retorted that the same argument could be made about virtually any country on the planet.
Trump had even given ambassadors the power to call a temporary halt to drone strikes, according to the Post story, causing further consternation at the Pentagon.
Trump’s national security team became so alarmed about his questioning of U.S. military engagements and forward deployment of troops that they felt something had to be done to turn him around. Mattis proposed to take Trump away from the White House into “the Tank” at the Pentagon, where the Joint Chiefs of Staff held their meetings, hoping to drive home their arguments more effectively.
It was there, on July 20, 2017, that Mattis, then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and other senior officials sought to impress on Trump the vital importance of maintaining existing U.S. worldwide military commitments and deployments. Mattis used the standard Bush and Obama administration rhetoric of globalism, according to the meeting notes provided to Woodward. He asserted that the “rules-based, international democratic order”—the term used to describe the global structure of U.S. military and military power—had brought security and prosperity. Tillerson, ignoring decades of U.S. destabilizing wars in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, chimed in, saying, “This is what has kept the peace for 70 years.”
Trump said nothing, according to Woodward’s account, but simply shook his head in disagreement. He eventually steered the discussion to an issue that was particularly irritating to him: U.S. military and economic relations with South Korea. “We spend $3.5 billion a year to have troops in South Korea,” Trump complained. “I don’t know why they’re there. … Let’s bring them all home!”
At that, Trump’s chief of staff at the time, Reince Priebus, recognizing that the national security team’s effort to get control of Trump’s opposition to their wars and troop deployments had been an utter failure, called a halt to the meeting.
In September 2017, even as Trump threatened in tweets to destroy North Korea, he was privately hammering aides over the U.S. troop presence in South Korea and repeatedly expressing a determination to remove them, Woodward’s account reveals.
Those Trump complaints prompted H.R. McMaster, then the national security adviser, to call for a National Security Council meeting on the issue on Jan. 19. Trump again demanded, “What do we get by maintaining a massive military presence in the Korean peninsula?” And he linked that question to the broader issue of the United States paying for the defense of other states in Asia, the Middle East and NATO.
Mattis portrayed the troop presence in South Korea as a great security bargain. “Forward-positioned troops provide the least costly means of achieving our security objectives,” he said, “and withdrawal would lead our allies to lose all confidence in us.” The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, argued that South Korea was reimbursing the United States $800 million a year out of the total cost of $2 billion, thus subsidizing the United States for something it would do in its own interests anyway.
But such arguments made no impression on Trump, who saw no value in having troops abroad at a time when the United States itself was crumbling. “We have [spent] $7 trillion in the Middle East,” Trump said at the end of the meeting. “We can’t even muster $1 trillion for domestic infrastructure.”
Trump’s belief that U.S. troops should be pulled out of South Korea was reinforced by the unexpected political-diplomatic developments in North and South Korea in early 2018. Trump responded positively to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s offer of a summit meeting and signaled his readiness to negotiate with Kim on an agreement that would both denuclearize North Korea and bring peace to the Korean peninsula.
Before the Singapore summit with Kim, Trump ordered the Pentagon to develop options for drawing down those U.S. troops. That idea was viewed by the news media and most of the national security elite as completely unacceptable, but it has long been well known among military and intelligence specialists on Korea that U.S. troops are not needed—either to deter North Korea or to defend against an attack across the DMZ.
Trump was impatient to end all three major wars he had inherited from Barack Obama: Afghanistan and the wars against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Woodward recounts how Trump lectured McMaster, Porter, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner in July 2017 on their return from a golf weekend about how tired he was of those wars. “We should just declare victory, end the wars and bring our troops home,” he told them, repeating—probably unconsciously—the same political tactic that had been urged by Vermont Sen. George Aiken in 1966 for ending the U.S. war in Vietnam.
Even after a massively destructive U.S.-NATO bombing campaign forced Islamic State to abandon its capital in the city of Raqqa, Syria, in October 2017, Trump’s national security team insisted on keeping U.S. troops in Syria indefinitely. In a mid-November briefing for reporters at the Pentagon, Mattis declared that preventing the return of Islamic State was a “longer-term objective” of the U.S. military, and that U.S. forces would remain in Syria to help establish conditions for a diplomatic solution. “We’re not going to walk away before the Geneva process has traction,” Mattis said.
But Mattis and Tillerson had not changed Trump’s mind about Syria. In early April 2018, the Pentagon gave Trump a paper that focused almost entirely on different options for remaining in Syria, treating full withdrawal as a clearly unacceptable option. In a tense meeting, Mattis and Joint Chiefs Chairman Dunford warned that complete withdrawal would allow Iran and Russia to fill the vacuum—as though Trump shared their assumption that such an outcome was unthinkable. Instead Trump told them he wanted U.S. troops to wrap the war with Islamic State in six months, according to a CNN account from Pentagon sources. And when Mattis and other officials warned that the timeline was too short, “Trump responded by telling his team to just get it done.”
A few days later, Trump declared publicly, “We’re coming out of Syria, like, very soon. Let the other people take care of it now. Very soon we’re coming out.”
After John Bolton entered the White House as national security adviser in April, however, he persuaded Trump to view Syria in the context of the administration’s vendetta against Iran—at least for the time being. Bolton declared this week that U.S. troops would not leave Syria as long as Iranian troops serve outside Iranian borders. But Mattis contradicted Bolton, saying the troops remained in Syria to defeat Islamic State and that the commitment was “not open-ended.”
Trump had been calling for an end to the war in Afghanistan for years before his election, and he felt passionate about getting out. And Woodward reveals that the NSC’s chief of staff, retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, supported the idea of U.S. withdrawal. When the National Security Council met in July 2017 to discuss Afghanistan, Trump interrupted McMaster’s initial presentation to explained why the war was “a disaster”: Nonexistent “ghost soldiers” in the Afghan army were being used to rip off the United States, as corrupt Afghan leaders milked the war and U.S. assistance to make money. When Tillerson tried to place Afghanistan in a “regional context,” Trump responded, “But how many more deaths? How many more lost limbs? How much longer are we going to be there?”
The Pentagon and McMaster nevertheless pressed on with a plan to increase the U.S. military presence. At a climactic meeting in mid-August on Afghanistan, according to the account in Woodward’s book, McMaster told Trump he had no choice but to step up the war by adding 4,000 troops. The reason? It was necessary to prevent al-Qaida or Islamic State from using Afghan territory to launch terror attacks on the United States or Europe.
Trump retorted angrily that the generals were “the architects of this mess” and that they have were “making it worse,” by asking him to add more troops to “something I don’t believe in.” Then Trump folded his arms and declared, “I want to get out. And you’re telling me the answer is to get deeper in.”
Mattis spelled out the argument in terms that he hoped would finally get to Trump. He warned that what had happened to Obama when he withdrew forces from Iraq prematurely would happen to Trump if he didn’t go along with the Pentagon’s proposed new strategy.
“I still think you’re wrong” [about the war], Trump said, [it] “hasn’t gotten us anything.” But he went along with Mattis and announced that he had been convinced to go against his own “instincts” by approving the 4,000-troop increase.
He was being cowed by the same fear of being accused of responsibility for possible future consequences of defeat in a war—a fear that had led Lyndon Johnson to abandon his own strong resistance to a full-scale U.S. intervention in Vietnam in mid-1965 and Barack Obama to accept a major escalation in Afghanistan that he had argued against in White House meetings.
Trump announced a new strategy in which there would be no arbitrary timelines for withdrawal as there had been under Obama and no restrictions on commanders’ use of drones and conventional airstrikes.
But since then, all accounts have agreed that the war is being lost to the Taliban, and Trump will certainly be forced to revisit the policy as the evidence of failure creates new political pressures on the administration.
The collapse of their black vote began before Kanye.
But this drives the stake thru their NWO hearts.
As this latest poll shows:
Trump at 36 percent approval among African-Americans, new poll finds
William Cummings USA TODAY
Published 1:46 p.m. UTC Aug 17, 2018
A new poll from Rasmussen Reports says that the president's approval rating among African-Americans is at 36 percent, nearly double his support at this time last year.
"Today's @realDonaldTrump approval ratings among black voters: 36%," Rasmussen said in a tweet. "This day last year: 19%."
That is a staggeringly high number for a man who only won 8 percent of the African-American vote in 2016.
It is even more unexpected given the president's rocky history on matters related to race, including his current nasty feud with former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, who has alleged Trump said "n word" on the set of the reality-TV show "The Apprentice."
Conservatives celebrated the poll as a sign of trouble for Democrats in upcoming elections.
Charlie Kirk, the founder of the conservative campus group Turning Point USA, cited the poll as evidence that Trump "is breaking the Democrat party as we know it."
"Trump’s Black Approval is at 36%," Kirk tweeted. "If I was a Democrat I would be terrified. And it’s only going to get worse for them."
