Several folks have personally asked my opinion on the Trump/Syria/Korea/Kushner stuff and if this means Trump has already rolled over to play dead Republican like the RINO’s and Neocons. Response: Don’t fall for the MSM sleight-of-hand distractions.
Spinning In Circles
If you feel like your Patriot Cause is spinning in circles and going nowhere, then the MSM is getting to you successfully.
First, hype about Trump’s tough talk on Korea and how there’s gonna be nuclear war and we’re all doomed.
Second, surprise missile launch into Syria; Neocons have the reins, USA is doomed.
Third, nationalist Bannon and globalist Kushner are fighting and Bannon appears to be losing. Again, the American ideals are doomed.
You thought Trump was going to save the nationalist ideal of the USA, and apparently he has already folded like a cheap suit, the globalists won, and we might as well have had a Hillary victory. Right?
If that’s what the last couple of weeks felt like to you, the MSM is successfully demoralizing you. And how are you going to unite with others under a common banner when you feel like your view has already lost, again? That’s why the MSM is trying to demoralize you: so that true Americans lose their momentum, throw their hands up in the air, and go back to sitting at home while the powers that be get back to letting you choose the lesser of two evils.
Mind Games with Teflon Trump
Since Trump first threw his hat in the ring, a tale supposedly from his book “The Art of The Deal” has stuck with me and taught me not to underestimate the moves Trump is making.
Apparently, Trump would sometimes deliberately throw off the other party at the start of negotiations by saying something like, “Woah! You really stink! Did you even shower today?” And then get down to business. Now, during the deal negotiation, the other party has lost their confidence because they are so worried about their personal hygiene embarrassment.
I recall when the MSM dug up some business woman to complain that Trump objected to breastfeeding, this story came to mind because the details were that the woman had attempted to pump breast milk at the executive boardroom table. Trump had basically objected on modesty’s sake, and I recall thinking she had tried to pull the “knock ’em off base” move from Trump’s playbook, and failed because she was trying to do it to Trump.
So keep that “You stink” mind-fake in your memory every time Trump makes a move, and you’ll pause long enough to wait and see that Trump is operating on a higher level than at first appears. Don’t believe me? How often through his campaign did the media try to say Trump had really stuck his foot in his mouth with a comment this time, and yet Teflon Trump still walked away unscathed.
Either he’s a master planner who planned on making lemonade all along, or else he’s good on the react phase and when a situation hands him lemons he just makes the best out of it and succeeds anyway. Either one is good enough for me.
Korea and Syria
Here’s what the MSM didn’t want you to know about Korea and Syria.
China needs North Korea to get in line and behave themselves on the world stage. They are embarrassing their communist big brother. But China also needs to be the one to find resolution, in order to save face – which is a huge deal in Eastern cultures. It’s a really sensitive situation for China.
Isn’t it interesting that the missile strike happened in the midst of Trump’s meeting with the Chinese leader, and there has been no complaints out of China through all this? China seems to be taking it even more cool than Russia.
Here’s an interesting strategy article. It describes China’s action toward North Korea, going back a month. It’s reverse chronology, so oldest news is at the bottom. Definitely read the whole thing, but here’s the key quotes:
China is increasingly angry at Koreans in general for not showing sufficient respect. The biggest (and growing) problem is North Korea. China wants a stable communist dictatorship in North Korea, not a failed government that would send several million starving refugees fleeing across the border. China also does not want North Korea to collapse and get absorbed by South Korea. That would put a democracy on China’s border and give many Chinese a view of how things might be much better with a different political system in China. Koreans are seen as “younger brothers” to China, and it’s embarrassing if the younger brother outdoes his older sibling. South Korean democracy is played down in China, but that would be difficult if a democratic, united, Korea were right on the border.
April 11, 2017: A Chinese daily newspaper (Global Times) known for being a state-controlled media outlet used to test new ideas published an item today pointing out that if North Korea does not abandon its nuclear weapons program (which is seen as a threat to China) then China will bomb the nuclear facilities and North Korea will have to live with that or suffer further military and economic consequences they cannot respond to (by attacking China). This article also warned the United States not to contemplate doing this, as North Korea was for neighbor China to deal with, not some distant superpower. Within hours the article was removed from the Global Times website, but many people had seen it and it still existed in Google cache. In other words, China was telling North Korea that stronger measures from China were now a possibility. At the same time the U.S. was making it clear that the kind of attack on Syria the U.S. recently carried out could be tried on North Korea. China agrees that it might come to that but they insist that the bombs or missiles be Chinese.
But wasn’t Syria a betrayal of one of Trump’s campaign promises? Give this a read (dated April 11):
Amid complaints that his aides are saying different things about Syria and his policy is confusing, President Trump emphatically cleared the air.
“We’re not going into Syria,” he told me yesterday in an exclusive interview. “Our policy is the same — it hasn’t changed. We’re not going into Syria.”
The president…said last week’s successful missile strike was not the start of a campaign to oust the dictator.
Further, Trump has improved his position with this move in two ways. He can now abandon the Neocons saying their plan didn’t work. In the same way the RyanCare bill fiasco lets Trump tell the Ryan RINO’s that he tried it their way and it was a flop, he can now tell Neocons banging the war drum for Syria (and ultimately Russia) that he just tried it their way and it didn’t work, so sit down and shut up.
Second, this wasn’t big enough to provoke Russia to full war, but sends a message that under Trump, the USA isn’t messing around any more and a “red line” is a red line that will not be crossed. Obama the appeaser is out.
Bannon vs. Kushner
You should recognize by now that Bannon is the man who supports patriotic ideals. If nothing else, this should be evident from the amount of criticism the MSM has heaped on him trying to paint him as evil, as a KKK member, or as literally Hitler. They oppose nationalism, and Bannon represents the American Nationalist ideals on Trump’s team.
Is Bannon out of favor? Try this quote (dated April 10):
A senior administration staffer told Fox News that, overall, Bannon and Kushner get along, and described their differences as more philosophical than personal. Bannon and Kushner often walk into each other’s West Wing offices to talk on issues.
Another top aide said he seriously doubts Bannon would leave any time soon, as has been suggested by other outlets, because of how close Bannon is to the president.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked Monday about the reported infighting.
“Overblown,” Spicer said, dismissively. “The reason the president brought this team together is to offer diverse opinions.”
Where’s the Real Fire?
The MSM wants you to assume that where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and so is doing wall to wall reporting on all these little smoke puffs. But is there a real globalist risk?
There is. This bit comes from Cernovich, who was the man who broke the Susan Rice story the rest of the media was trying to cover up (Note the date of April 8):
Current National Security Adviser Herbert Raymond “H. R.” McMaster is manipulating intelligence reports given to President Donald Trump, Cernovich Media can now report. McMaster is plotting how to sell a massive ground war in Syria to President Trump with the help of disgraced former CIA director and convicted criminal David Petraeus, who mishandled classified information by sharing documents with his mistress.
As NSA, McMaster’s job is to synthesize intellience reports from all other agencies. President Trump is being given an inaccurate picture of the situation in Syria, as McMaster is seeking to involve the U.S. in a full scale war in Syria.
The McMaster-Petraeus plan calls for 150,000 American ground troops in Syria.
Sources also suggest that McMaster is sharing classified information with Petraeus, whose security clearance was revoked.
McMaster was called Petraeus’ golden child by some commenters, noting the strong influence Petraeus had over McMaster. Petraeus was considered for the position of NSA, but withdrew his name from consideration once McMaster’s name was included on the short-list. McMaster’s appointment allowed Petraeus to maintain control over the NSC without bringing his considerable baggage to the position.
Two men were standing in between another U.S.-led war in the Middle East — General Mike Flynn and Steve Bannon.
Flynn was removed after Susan Rice unmasked classified information concerning him. Bannon’s role within the White House was weakened by McMaster, who demanded Bannon be removed from his advisory position at NSC.
McMaster’s friends in the media, as part of a broader strategy to increase McMaster’s power, have claimed Jared Kushner and Bannon had a major falling out. In fact Kushner and Bannon are united in their opposition to McMaster’s plan.
Definitely go read the whole thing. First Susan Rice, now McMaster. I can’t wait to see what Cernovich unearths next.
So We Can All Relax?
Whew! So Trump’s not a turncoat. That means America will be restored to its 1950’s B&W Photo heyday within 8 years?
Not so fast. You are correct that we don’t have to worry about Hillary outlawing guns next month (had she been appointed President in November).
But do you really think Social Security will be stabilized by 2040 when millennials are ready to cash out?
Do you really think we will assimilate all these illegal immigrants and refugees in the next two decades? Obama’s team set a goal in 2008 to ensure that demographics is destiny in the USA. What destiny would that be, precisely?
The fiscal cake is baked. Paul Ryan got his name trying to push a sane budget at the start of Obama years and warning us we had to act or the US would be fiscally doomed. Then he got some cushy positions and signed off on every item of Obama’s wishlist.
I was watching the director’s cut of Aliens a few nights ago and choked on my drink when Ridley was getting grilled for blowing up an “expensive” capital ship with a hefty price tag of $42 million dollars. Maybe that sounded like a lot of money back when the movie was made in 1986. Now, it’s almost as ridiculous as Dr. Evil from Austin Powers holding the world hostage for “$1 million dollars.” I didn’t bat an eye at all the dated computer tech that was supposed to be ‘futuristic.’ But thinking that ship price tag represents a lot of money goes beyond my ability to suspend disbelief.
Just over 5 years ago, $42mil would only buy you a set of 5 dozen shrimp treadmills. Who knows how much a shrimp treadmill costs these days, what with inflation and all.
Meanwhile, the Department of HUD just accidently misplaced a half TRILLION dollars of tax money. From their own report:
HUD reissued its fiscal years 2016 and 2015 (restated) consolidated financial statements due to pervasive material errors that we identified.…The total amounts of errors corrected in HUD’s notes and consolidated financial statements were$516.4 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively.
You need a plan for the long term. Do you think the Feds will suddenly find a way to fund the unfunded liabilities by 2030? Where do you see the markets in 2030? The value of the USD? Will our heavily diversified culture suddenly unite around a 1787 piece of paper written by dead white Englishmen? Or are they, like every other quarreling faction, just going to fight to carve out the biggest possible slice of the pie produced by those defunct values?
