Trump: Rhetoric vs. Reality

Don’t mistake the bluster for policy

by Justin Raimondo 

With Donald Trump in the White House, merrily tweeting whatever disruptive and disturbing sentiments erupt from his consciousness in the early morning hours, hysteria has become the default condition of our pundit class.

Trump tweets that “only one thing” can stop Korean despot Kim Jong-un’s nuclear pyrotechnics, and the editorialists swing into action, while the Democrats point gleefully to the prospect of World War III: “See? We told you he’s nuts!”

Add to this the widespread belief that Kim Jong-un is a “madman,” and the hysteria of the chattering classes reaches fever pitch: we’ve got no less than two crazy people with nuclear weapons, and they’re about to blow up the world! Oh no!

The problem with this scenario is that it has nothing to do with reality: it’s a rhetorical construct, based on the verbal extravagances of actors whose entire modus operandi depends on a constant stream of bluster, bluff, and unmitigated bullshit.

For Kim and the North Koreans, this strategy has served them well: long after the fall of communism, the withdrawal of Soviet protection, and their alienation from Beijing, the last bastion of old-style Stalinism continues to defy the West. It has taken a monomaniacal focus on a single goal – the complete militarization of their society, resulting in the utter impoverishment of the populace – but the North Koreans have managed to do it: while their little Sparta would ultimately lose a war with the United States, the price they would make us pay is far too high for the preventive war so many fear to be “on the table,” as our rulers routinely put it.

North Korean artillery perched on hillsides within range of Seoul – South Korea’s bustling capital, with a population of some ten million – would wreak devastation on a scale not seen since Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and Dresden. North Korea’s one-million-plus army would pour over the border and smash through both the South Korean defense forces and the 30,000 or so US military personnel currently (and foolishly) stationed on the peninsula.

Millions would die, on both sides of the demilitarized zone.

For this reason, the US – despite Trump’s tweets – is not going to launch an attack on North Korea. And Kim Jong-un, whose dynasty has been in power for 70 years, is not going to make the first move either: a stalemate has preserved the regime thus far, and there’s no reason to believe that Kim wants to commit suicide.

As for Trump, the idea that he’s some kind of uncontrollable maniac about to plunge the world into a fiery fulcrum of nuclear destruction is yet another symptom of Trump Derangement Syndrome. The annihilation of South Korea, not to mention Japan – and the probable tens of thousands of American military casualties – is not something he wants on his record. Nothing is to be gained by a US military assault on the North: therefore, it isn’t going to happen, no matter what the President tweets.

In a similar vein, the anticipated decertification of Iran as being out of compliance with the JCPOA is being seized on by Trump critics as yet more evidence that he’s a madman intent on starting a war. Yet “decertification” doesn’t mean the US is going to pull out of the deal: it merely means that Trump, while posturing as Mr. Tough Guy, is going to let Congress deal with the issue while he plays to his base – just as he’s doing with the Korean “crisis.”

As Eli Lake points out, under the terms of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, Trump doesn’t have to wait for Congress to reimpose sanctions on Tehran: he has the authority to do so right now, and he hasn’t acted. Furthermore, as Lake reports, the deal’s biggest critics in Congress are not going to push for more sanctions – a move that doesn’t have the votes to pass the Senate anyway.

The vague hope of the anti-deal faction is that Congress will “reform” the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act to include restrictions on Tehran’s testing of ballistic missiles and support for groups like Hezbollah. Yet this is fated to end as a purely propagandistic exercise for the simple reason that the rest of the signers of the JCPOA aren’t going to go along with it.

When it comes to Korea and the Iran deal, Trump is reveling in his role as the belligerent bombastic upholder of America’s role as global bully while pursuing a policy that is nearly indistinguishable from that of his predecessors. He gets to engage in rhetorical pyrotechnics and score political points with certain constituencies while maintaining the status quo: in short, he gets to engage in what is essentially a theatrical performance entirely unrelated to what is actually occurring on the ground. His enemies, mistaking rhetoric for reality, have risen to the bait.

For all the wild predictions that Trump would have us in a major new war fairly shortly, nearly nine months into his presidency we see no signs of it: we simply have the ongoing military conflicts he inherited from his predecessors. And while that may not comport with the Never Trumper characterization of the President as a moral monster who is quite possibly deranged, it is the reality beyond the rhetoric that the hysterics of the Twitterverse refuse to see.

As usual, these people are merely projecting their own emotional responses and political biases onto the screen of US foreign policy, a method that tells us much more about them than it does about Washington’s intentions.

  1. It is a new type of war now: against the middle class, the small/medium businesses and the production of physical products in the western world.

  2. Good if it is only rhetoric, one has to ask for what purpose ? Neither domestically nor internationally does Trump gain any respect by his irresponsible rhetoric, nor can he achieve any political goal with it. Trump seems basically a narcissistic person more interested in showing the world what a “tough guy” he is than in solving problems. I would say, give this man his own TV show, but keep him out of the White House.

    1. @FRANKLIN RYCKAERT

      “give this man his own TV show, but keep him out of the White House.”

      I agree since he is an actor like the rest of them . President Clinton once said you become a president and suddenly someone else calls the shots .
      As long as Israel is happy with him , he’ll be fine . They told him ,

      You grab pussies and we grab Palestinian lands . Let’s see who grabs more .

  3. “It has taken a monomaniacal focus on a single goal – the complete militarization of their society, resulting in the utter impoverishment of the populace – but the North Koreans have managed to do it”

    He should of added the USA to that list; a nation that has completely militarized its society at the cost of the utter impoverishment of the populace…unless you’re in the 1%.

  4. See?
    What I’ve been saying for 9 months in face of nearly universal ridicule and now others are going public with it as Trump’s M/O becomes more obvious:

    Use whatever bullshit provides temporary buffer from jew’s frenzied attacks in media and congress, while maneuvering and positioning international events, quite possibly in collusion with other non-shabbo leaders, to make it look as if his hand was reluctantly forced not to serve jew’s goals.

    So sorry … reverse kol nidre (LOL NIDRE)

    1. @ Lobro

      See?
      What I’ve been saying for 9 months in face of nearly universal ridicule…

      Hurray! Lobro has been vindicated at last! LOL. 🙂

  5. Trump is a great method actor. He is genuinely funny. Much better than the vile, faggot Obummer and his farcical HOPE credo that sucked Americans further into the Jews’ spider web. Will Trump get a Nobel Prize like the faggot who inreased the military budget by 30% and engaged in 7 wars? Of course not! Yes, Trump is at the end of the puppet strings, just like all the traitor, bought off Goyim. But he does not pretend seriousness and is having fun. The Kid is as funny as Kid Rock and Jerry Lewis combined. He delights in sky rockets exploding in the sky. We only get the politicians and leaders we deserve. The hidden hands of power (Disraeli) are doing a masterful job in running Orwell’s pig farm. Oink, oink, to all you little piggies out there. You built your house on sand, out of straw … now accept the consequences. The Jewish poIitburo willl blow up the planet if they are to lose; using their nuclear weapons supplied by the American taxpayer. OINK!

    1. The hidden hands of power (Disraeli) are doing a masterful job in running Orwell’s pig farm. Oink, oink, to all you little piggies out there.

      Max, you are amusing. I hope you are also serious.

  6. “the last bastion of old-style Stalinism continues to defy the West”

    I had to laugh at that statement because it holds no essential meaning within a Korean context.

    ESSENTIALLY, “Stalinism” was the successful effort of purging those particularly vile elements of jewry, who if left to their own devices would have utterly destroyed Russia, thus depriving the REAL jewish authority of furthering it’s agenda which called for it’s preservation

    Stalin’s masonic masters were the ones callin’ the shots on THAT

    1. A retraction of sorts

      Given my definition of “Stalinism”, virtually ALL countries could be said to be “Stalinistic”.

      Stalinism: A system of calling off the rabid mad dog jews in order to keep the nation manageable for the long-term plans for it

      Putin did no less in his own way in keeping with the existing dynamics within Russia, and even if he were of a mind to purge the whole rotten lot, he is hamstrung because its’ legions aren’t confined to Russia alone.

    2. “Stalinism” in this context means a communist dictator who creates a personality cult around himself. Besides Stalin, Mao Zedong and Ceausescu did that. In the North Korean dictatorship (now in its third generation) the personality cult around the leader developed into a full fledged pseudo-religion.

      1. I bet my first post I sent in will be CENSORED. I knew it was going to be CENSORED as I was typing it. It’s not being CENSORED because of what I’m saying in this here post. It would have been CENSORED even if I didn’t send in this here post, a post in which I rightfully and right ON-TARGET call Lasha a fuckin’ putrid daughter of JEW qabalah lilith JEW cunt, sayin’.

      2. Joe,

        Would you care to identify the post? You have sent in about 20, all equally abusive and unpublishable. I don’t have time to read such longwinded, repetitious garbage, let alone “censor” it. 🙂

      3. Admin Toby, one of my posts was deleted at https://www..me/2017/war-clouds-gathering-over-israel/

        It appeared, then disappeared the next day. I don’t think it was indecent and abusive in any way. It was my reply to Flan O’Brien on exactly the same sub-topic; I just confirmed what Flan had written, and added a couple of links. It’s a pity because I think it would be useful to others. 🙂

      4. You’re missing the essential points, Franklin. Meaning the EFFECT is had had in the overall scheme of things. That’s the only thing that matters

      5. @ Snez

        Admin Toby, one of my posts was deleted at https://www..me/2017/war-clouds-gathering-over-israel/

        It appeared, then disappeared the next day. I don’t think it was indecent and abusive in any way.

        These things sometimes happen by accident, Snez. I don’t recollect deleting any of your comments. Please post your comment again if you still have it and this time (I hope) it will not “disappear”.

        (Sometimes a post is deleted if it contains a defective link that seriously damages the formatting of the site. This is a technical matter which most posters here are unaware of.)

  7. This is one of Justin Raimondo’s worst essays, IMO.

    “As for Trump, the idea that he’s some kind of uncontrollable maniac about to plunge the world into a fiery fulcrum of nuclear destruction is yet another symptom of Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

    I vehemently disagree. And so do others.

    https://news–of-the-day.com/2017/10/09/bob-corker-rips-into-trump-says-he-could-set-the-us-on-the-path-to-world-war-iii/

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/book-party/wp/2017/09/22/is-trump-mentally-ill-or-is-america-psychiatrists-weigh-in/?utm_term=.ae977ccbea5b

    If it wasn’t for the supernatural restraint of Russia and China, we might not be here right now. Let’s face it if a private person in this society was acting the way Trump was acting, he’d be either dead (e.g. shot by cops) or institutionalized somewhere by now.

    “The annihilation of South Korea, not to mention Japan – and the probable tens of thousands of American military casualties – is not something he wants on his record.”

    Huh? On “[Trump’s] record”? Nonsense. If that happens it’ll be someone else’s fault. It’ll be Kim Jong-un’s fault. It’ll be China’s fault. It’ll be Russia’s fault. Obviously.

    “Nothing is to be gained by a US military assault on the North: therefore, it isn’t going to happen, no matter what the President tweets.”

    Seriously? What was “gained” by a cruise missile attack on a Syrian airbase? What was “gained” by the illegal seizure of Russian diplomatic property? What was “gained” by the death of Russian General Asapov? These were all senseless, risky provocations which risked much and gained nothing, were they not?

    BTW with tensions high how do we know that Israel won’t fire a torpedo at a U.S. or South Korean ship and blame NOrth Korea? Trump’s created a set of conditions where a world war could happen by “accident” or by false-flag attack.

    1. @ Harold Smith

      This is one of Justin Raimondo’s worst essays, IMO.

      You could well be right, which is why the article comes with our usual disclaimer. This is obviously a pro-Trump article which we publish in order to appease the Trump admirers in our midst who would otherwise start accusing us of being “unfair” and “unbalanced” in our reportage. We have a couple of anti-Trump articles in the pipeline which will soon help to restore the balance. 🙂

    2. “For all the wild predictions that Trump would have us in a major new war fairly shortly, nearly nine months into his presidency we see no signs of it:.”

      Let’s think about this for a minute. Isn’t there a good chance that the next “Major new war” started by America may be America’s last? Or to put it another way, with the global situation being what it is, what “MAJOR new war” can we envision at this point that will likely NOT involve Russia and/or China? None that I can imagine.

      By now the Russians seem totally disgusted with the U.S. government’s continuing provocations under Trump. I believe they are bending over backwards to prevent a (nuclear) war, but it seems the more restraint they demonstrate, the harder they get pushed the next time. The question is: Is there a limit to their patience?

      Russia is apparently very close to deploying a series of potentially “game changing” weapon systems, such as the S-500 air defense system; the “Zircon” hypersonic cruise missile; the RS-28 “Sarmat” ICBM and the Sukhoi PAK FA T-50 stealth fighter jet. I wouldn’t be surprised if Russia is biding its time and biting its tongue until it can deploy these systems. But once these systems are deployed, they might not be so willing to keep bending over.

      “we simply have the ongoing military conflicts he inherited from his predecessors.”

      No we don’t; rather, we have “inherited” conflicts that he’s not only failed to de-escalate but he’s instead ESCALATED.

      1. Harold

        As slick Willie said straight from the horse’s mouth, a POTUS learns right away that that he’s not the one in charge, ESPECIALLY regarding war-related decisions.

        This should be clear to all at this junture

      2. “As slick Willie said straight from the horse’s mouth, a POTUS learns right away that that he’s not the one in charge, ESPECIALLY regarding war-related decisions.”

        Of course he’s in charge (whether he sells his soul or not is another matter). Trump didn’t have to fire cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase; Trump didn’t have to seize Russian diplomatic property and give Russian personnel only two days to vacate their own property; Trump didn’t have to tell the world at the UN assembled that he’s prepared to destroy North Korea (and kill millions of people rather than find a diplomatic solution); Trump didn’t have to send more troops to Afghanistan; Trump doesn’t have to openly support terrorists in Syria; Trump doesn’t have to fail to demand an investigation into the collapse of WTC7; etc., etc., etc.

      3. Selling or not selling his soul notwithstanding, none of what you attributed to Trump indicates being in charge

        He’s “in charge” of doing what he’s told. Not necessarily as a mere puppet without a brain in his head. Call it being steered in a desired direction of which he better be on board with….or else

      4. “Selling or not selling his soul notwithstanding, none of what you attributed to Trump indicates being in charge

        He’s “in charge” of doing what he’s told. Not necessarily as a mere puppet without a brain in his head. Call it being steered in a desired direction of which he better be on board with….or else”

        None of what you’re saying makes any sense to me. It cannot stand the slightest logical scrutiny, IMO. I don’t think it’s worth debating here for the Nth time.

      5. It cannot stand the slightest logical scrutiny? What an absurd thing to say. What kind of “logic” are you talking about?

      6. I’m not going to waste time arguing absurdities with you, Brownie, especially since this has been discussed here so many times before.

      7. Presidential power? Reflect on the fact that G.W. Bush Jr. was sitting in a elementary school class when America came under attack by a foreign power on September 11th. This was the first time in American history the continental US has come under attack by an external enemy.

        So what did America’s top leader do upon hearing this alarming news? Naturally he returned to reading fairy tales to children, looking for all the world like a member of the class. This “photo op” was no mistake. It telegraphed a clear message to Jews worldwide who isn’t calling the shots.

        This is also made abundantly clear every time a president dons a yarmulke and bows his head in fealty at the wailing, kvetching “wall,” a nasty habit that began occurring regularly with G.W. Bush Senior. Stupid American goyim cannot see what is clear to most everyone in the world.

        This just isn’t done by a the head of a sovereign power, as it sends a clear, diplomatic message of subservience, especially to those whose religious memorial at which they bow. When your top leadership bows their head at the site of a foreign power’s sacred religious memorials, he is clearly showing fealty to that power.

        Name another foreign religious site where American presidents regularly bow in this manner. How many times has an American president kissed a pope’s ring? Americans know nothing about even the most coarse points of diplomatic protocol. But what should one expect when Americans are consumed with watching TV shows?

  8. I’ve been wondering how it is possible to have had so many nuclear power plant accidents [Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Fukushima] but not a single accident in places where there are nuclear weapons. It looks like magic! 😉

    1. And how can they be so certain that only few countries have nukes? Are other countries incapable of making nukes, or too benevolent, or too ignorant of the threat, or somehow controlled by the UN and the countries that have nukes? It doesn’t make sense.

      1. “It doesn’t make sense.”

        Because there are no men who have been on the moon…
        ….no 6 million gassed… AND NO nuke weapons.!!

        You should have figgered it ALL out by now. 🙂

    2. There have been “so many nuclear power plant accidents”…..

      Because they ALL were steam explosions which contained and spread ‘dirty’ radioactive material. Deadly radioactive material.

      There were NO nuclear explosions at all.. 🙂

      1. Pat, you said exactly what I wanted to hear. 😉 Briefly though. 🙂
        The reason why I posted the above 2 comments the way I did was to logically challenge the unquestionable belief in the nuclear threat in Raimondo’s article and in the posts here, because that was how I realised that something was wrong with the official stories.

      2. Snez –

        I gathered that you were wanting the info from your positions there. I did not want to elaborate.

        Either you believe the religion of nuke weapons… or you don’t. 🙂

        I don’t. I have stated my reasons at length before.

        I am very serious there. And for the NEW folks who want to know why….

        This will help them understand why I make that claim… Understanding ‘buckling’ is proof. This is a good starting point for you. Have fun: 🙂

        Nuclear Buckling
        http://www.nuclear-power.net/nuclear-power/reactor-physics/neutron-diffusion-theory/geometrical-material-buckling/

        —-Criticality Condition:
        The basic classification of states of a nuclear reaction is according to the multiplication factor as eigenvalue which is a measure of the change in the fission neutron population from one neutron generation to the subsequent generation.

        keff 1. This condition is known as the SUPERCRITICAL state.

        For any positive value of materials buckling, there is a – UNIQUE – critical size for applicable nuclear geometry.

        Generally, the multiplication of a uniform fission of any shape and size is given by keff = k∞.PNL, with the non/leakage PROBABILITY.

        The total non-leakage probability is primarily a function of migration area and the relative curvature of the neutron flux given by the geometrical buckling.

        ALSO:
        Unlike other explosives, such as gunpowder, a small amount will not produce a smaller explosion once the proper mass is obtained, known as the ‘critical mass.’ Only a BIG BOOM is available with nukes.
        That means there are NO ‘mini nukes’…period. No ‘suitcase’ nukes either. Forklift required.

        It is ‘all-or-none’ at the minimum required critical mass. That mass varies with the material, but is usually about 123 pounds for U and …. 24 pounds for Pu, on this planet. It must be refined and enriched for that small amount to work as a weapon.

        Little Boy was 140 lbs of U. When the hollow-front projectile reached the target and slid over the target insert, the assembled super-critical mass of uranium would be completely surrounded by a tamper and neutron reflector of tungsten carbide and steel, both materials having a combined mass of 2,300 kg (5,100 lb).(Suitcase???)

        Fat Man was 13.6 lbs Pu, and – SUPPOSEDLY – took 5,300 lbs of explosives to detonate.(Suitcase impossible)

        See: http://www.atomicheritage.org/history/little-boy-and-fat-man

        “The nominal spherical critical mass for an untampered U-235 nuclear weapon is 56 kilograms (123 lb), a sphere 17.32 cm (6.8″) in diameter. The required material must be 85% or more of U-238 and is known as weapons grade uranium, though for a crude, inefficient weapon 20% is sufficient (called weapon(s)-usable). Even lower enrichment can be used, but then the required critical mass rapidly increases. Use of a large tamper, implosion geometries, trigger tubes, polonium triggers, tritium enhancement, and neutron reflectors can enable a more compact, economical weapon using one-fourth or less of the nominal critical mass, though this would likely only be possible in a country that already had extensive experience in engineering nuclear weapons.”

        Pu weapons are impossible to make, even for governments.

        Detonation of a nuclear weapon involves bringing fissile material into its optimal supercritical state very rapidly. During part of this process, the assembly is supercritical, but not yet in an optimal state for a chain reaction. Free neutrons, in particular from spontaneous fissions, can cause the device to undergo a preliminary chain reaction that destroys the fissile material before it is ready to produce a large explosion, which is known as predetonation. To keep the probability of predetonation low, the duration of the non-optimal assembly period is minimized and fissile and other materials are used which have low spontaneous fission rates. In fact, the combination of materials has to be such that it is unlikely that there is even a single spontaneous fission during the period of supercritical assembly. In particular, the gun method cannot be used with plutonium.

        If two pieces of subcritical material are not brought together fast enough, nuclear predetonation can occur, whereby a smaller explosion than expected will blow the bulk of the material apart. That ‘fizzle’ might happen in a nuclear reactor during core meltdown.

        ……………….

        Also, Snez….
        They would ALSO have a “BIGGLY” limited shelf-life.. lose their critical shapes.. destroy electronics with radiation bombardment 24-7 for decades… AND you almost swerved into that fact..!! 🙂

      3. Thanks, Pat. I used to believe what they taught me at school. Not any more. If you know more, it would be good to share, so that people stop living in unnecessary fear. 🙂

      4. @ SNEZ

        Nukes don’t exist. It’s all Jewish BULLCRAP!

        @ Pat

        Great technical information, but I’m afraid it will be GREEK to most, way over the heads of the sheeple.

        Here’s a simpler explanation:

        Clouds and even smoke from a fire are essentially tiny water vapors that would evaporate at temperatures over 500 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is true that the atomic bomb can generate temperatures as high as 150 million degrees Fahrenheit, there wouldn’t be any clouds or smoke, mushroom-shaped or otherwise. Absolutely None! Forever ZERO! Never Again Nada! LOL

        If the atomic bomb was fake, then nukes are fake. FULL STOP!

        PS

        @ SNEZ

        You can test this out and see for yourself by simply boiling a small glass of water in your oven. You will not be able to see any steam, but boil water in a pot over the stove top and you will because the temperature outside the pot is only room temperature and well below 500 degrees.

        Don’t worry, be happy. 🙂 (((Nukes))) are all smoke and mirrors!

  9. LOL, they fought the Trump and the Trump won! (how many times)
    Justin’s last sentence IS the message.
    Especially the “that tells us much more about them,” part.

    1. @ HP

      Yep. There are some other parts as well.

      “…hysteria has become the default condition of our pundit class.”

      “His (Trump) enemies, mistaking rhetoric for reality, have risen to the bait.”

      Trump knows how to play the media like a harp and they are too dumb to counter it because it would require them to tell the truth which jews avoid at all costs. Besides, Trump also knows that very few people pay attention to the jewish mainstream media. Trump destroyed what little was left of the MSM’s credibility in his campaign. Those that have a real interest knowing what is really going on go to the net.

      Trump has illustrated more than once that he is as crazy as a fox. Trump puts his do nothing jew son-in-law in charge of the Mid-East reducing USA influence against the wishes of Israel. Trump used his closest jew against the globalist jews. Trump falsely creates conflict between himself and Tillerson along with Sessions. If there was a real conflict, they would be fired. Trump has not demanded that pedo Mueller be fired while Mueller gathers his like-minded “friends” into a convenient group unwittingly waiting for a hammer to fall on them. Trump’s fox list of this type of maneuvering is long for just 9 months in the swamp.

      Trump prides himself on being unpredictable and he is doing a good job of that. Control by outside forces requires predictability.

  10. I love Justin Raimondo. He turned me on to the libertarianism of Ron Paul and now Rand Paul. I am pro-Trump but I haven’t been that happy with the rhetoric of late. I can see why he was offended by the “football kneelers” but enough is enough. There are other things to do, aren’t there? As I write this northern California is going up in flames because the state of California is ruled by a Democratic Legislature that only cares about illegal immigrants and they have to keep passing bills to get money to them—for legal fees, for welfare costs, etc. etc. And don’t forget that now California is carrying the load for the world on the questionable global warming agenda, and that costs so much they don’t have sufficient funds to put out spot fires and so the fire keeps spreading.

    Then there is the psyop in Vegas where internet sleuths have managed to ferret out motive and means while the FBI twiddles its thumbs. A “fire team” or some other military unit was used to initiate what appears to be a whole new program of security— already in the Nevada legislature. Someone leaked out in September that they (the pro-security amp people) were going to do this massacre to convince the public to go along with the legislation of new surveillance systems including more Chertoff’s radiation scatter machines, that are known to cause cancer. But they also had to turn it into a spooky show in front of the pyramid. The head of MGM sold his stock way back in August, and he was also the head of Obama’s homeland security team to upgrade security. Mr. Trump, with all due respect could you put someone in the FBI that isn’t working for the “deep state” on this case so that justice might again prevail in our country.

    I have never believed in the Trump is crazy meme because why would I listen to people who lie, lie, lie…Russian collusion, etc. Every week it’s something new. But seriously, Mr. Trump, get your priorities straight and bring justice and balance back to our country.

    1. @ Kapoore

      It takes time to drain a swamp that is exceptionally large and very deep. In the meantime, Trump has the swamp creatures in a turmoil if not a panic.

      1. if his unpredictable actions occur within a contained sphere they don’t, and these swamp creatures are of little concern to the “outside forces”>

  11. Another funny scene from the Jew’s bizarro world of incredible reversals, communist agitators blocked and arrested in Russia while they roam free to create havoc in America. Does anyone have the galactic transit schedule for the next cosmic bus leaving this asylum?

    Sergey Chekrygin arrested at Anticapitalism 2017 in Moscow Sept. 23.

    Communist and other leftist youth in Moscow had planned to hold their annual “Anticapitalism-2017” march on Sept. 23, highlighting the crisis conditions for young workers since the restoration of capitalism in Russia a quarter-century ago. This year’s event held special significance for many, as it fell during the 100-year anniversary of Russia’s 1917 socialist revolution.

    However, Moscow city officials denied the usual authorization for the march. In violation of the law, the mayor’s office first delayed its response to the organizers, then did not offer an alternative march route, and finally ignored the organizers’ offer of an alternative.

    Believing they were well within their rights, activists came out Sept. 23, declaring they would hold a “people’s festival.” But police were waiting. They stopped and arrested many before they could reach the gathering site, including Left Front coordinator and former political prisoner Sergey Udaltsov and United Communist Party First Secretary Vladimir Lakeev.

    Those activists who were able to gather unfurled a banner and began to march, determined not to be intimidated. But police roughly broke up the demonstration, throwing people to the ground and arresting about 40 in all.

    In response, Workers World Party from the U.S. issued a statement of solidarity with the Russian activists. It read in part: “These dangerous moves against the Russian Left come at a time when U.S. imperialism, under the Donald Trump regime, is threatening war and carrying out provocative acts against countries around the world, including Russia and many of its allies. It can only be called foolhardy on the part of the authorities of the Russian Federation to engage in physical and political attacks on the best and most determined fighters against U.S. imperialism, friends of Donbass, and committed anti-fascists.”

    1. Arch –

      Thanks.

      Rothschild’s banking capitalism – BIS – controls ‘Put-On’ and….

      ……..wins again, just as it does in London and NYC..!! 🙂

      1. Putin was a KGB, and the KGB sprang from the notorious Cheka [‘human sacrifice’ in Jewish], and he is also a Mason like Trump, although Putin doesn’t use any Masonic sign language in public because of the strong Christian atmosphere in Russia. Likewise, Mutti Merkel was a long-time member of the Communist Party in Eastern Berlin, then “converted” to Christian-Democratic Party, and then became a Mason and she, like Trump, proudly uses Masonic signs. All three are in the 33rd degree mode of mind. So, it all boils down to Jewish control.

  12. North and South Korea would have reunited years ago if not for Washington preventing it. The Deep State does not want any reunification as it would be a blow to the Military Industrial Security Complex. So these games between Trump and Un will continue, even though it is no doubt scaring the crap out of the citizens of Seoul with the Sword of Damocles constantly hanging over their heads.

    Raimondo may be right that there will not be a war by intention. But a war starting by accident is much more likely. All it would take would be one side shooting down a war plane of another in error. For example, Russian Colonel Stanislav Petrov is often called “the man who single-handedly saved the world from nuclear war.” On 9-26-83, with Petrov as the officer in charge, the Soviet early warning system detected that missiles had been launched from the US. Petrov correctly judged that it was a system malfunction and took appropriate action, preventing an erroneous Soviet retaliatory nuclear attack on the US. Petrov’s decision took guts. Another officer may not have been so wise – and I wouldn’t be here to write this.

    1. “North and South Korea would have reunited years ago if not for Washington preventing it.”

      Agreed.

      “The Deep State does not want any reunification as it would be a blow to the Military Industrial Security Complex.”

      Our masters don’t want peace on the Korean Peninsula because North Korea is the pretext for the ongoing military encirclement of China (similar to how Iran is the pretext for the Aegis Ashore missile launchers in Europe).

      1. Harold Smith, a lot of well informed and highly educated South Koreans have told me exactly the same as you claim in these 2 posts with regards to North-South Korea relations. They have families separated in two countries, who hardly ever see each other, and South Koreans blame the [Jew-led] US for that.

    2. “North and South Korea would have reunited years ago if not for Washington preventing it.”

      It is China that is propping up the regime in the North to maintain the status quo. If the North and South were to reunite, it would mean the possibility of the US military on the border of China. As things are now, North Korea is a much appreciated buffer between China and the US military in South Korea.

      China is N Korea’s biggest trading partner. This is why Trump keeps saying there is more China could do to resolve the problem with N Korea, ICMBs and nukes. If China bars trade with N Korea, N Korea will go away, permanently. China wants that buffer between it and the US military.

      1. “It is China that is propping up the regime in the North to maintain the status quo.”

        That statement needs some qualification. Of course China will not allow the forcible imposition of a hostile, U.S. occupied/jew-controlled puppet government on its border. Neither would Russia.

        “If the North and South were to reunite, it would mean the possibility of the US military on the border of China. As things are now, North Korea is a much appreciated buffer between China and the US military in South Korea.”

        No it wouldn’t, because if the North and South were to reunite, there would be no justification whatsoever for a U.S. military presence on the Korean Peninsula. And this is apparently why the U.S. government sabotaged the peace/reunification effort of South Korean President Kim Dae-jung.

  13. I thought Justin Raimondo had a bit more depth than this

    On North Korea -“in the utter impoverishment of the populace” this is demonstrably a complete lie.
    http://www.4thmedia.org/2017/06/the-social-and-economic-achievements-of-north-korea/

    “the verbal extravagances of actors whose entire modus operandi depends on a constant stream of bluster, bluff, and unmitigated bullshit.”

    It is no bluff or bluster as far as the sick-and tired-of-the united-states North Koreans are concerned. It is reality. North Korea has broken no international laws, has threatened nobody, will not attack first and is guilty of only one crime – defying the Rothschild-run USA who cannot tolerate a country ably defended against them and their global financial control ambitions.

    “long after the fall of communism, the withdrawal of Soviet protection, and their alienation from Beijing, the last bastion of old-style Stalinism continues to defy the West.”

    It is a big mistake to say that PyongYang is alienated from Beijing and quite dangerous if it leads idiots to think they can attack NK and China won’t get involved ( as will Russia).
    China and the DPRK are very closely connected at a thousand different levels. Yes Beijing, ever frightened of the mad USA wishes this wasn’t happening and has even gone along with sanctions and definitely doesn’t like the youthful Kim giving the US the same verbal trashing he gets almost daily. But Beijing will ensure North Korea survives because other wise they could have NATO on their border. Moscow also has said the DPRK’s concerns are justified and has proposed commercial ties of energy and transport.
    China and the DPRK have a mutual defense treaty in full force and China has said that it will not allow an attack on North Korea.
    The problem is two fold -100% US belligerence and the fact that not being a free sovereign state South Korea cannot negotiate with the North . South Korea in particular is an empty puppet state. In the event of war all it’s military comes under US command and look how enthusiastically Australia is embracing US war plans prepared to toss away 40% of it’s economy to placate the bankers in Washington, If the US and the puppets attacked North Korea not only would China respond but Russia also since they would see that if Chinas is defeated, they would be next.
    But Raimondo is partly right – the US won’t attack North Korea. However it might well attack North Korea and China together which could be what it is really preparing for.

    1. @ Harold Smith

      Giving credence to a CIA outlet, The Washington Post, is not wise. The CIA is known for lying just like the jews that control them. Additionally, 27 jews and/or jew trained goyim in the jew created psycho industry should not be trusted.

      1. ‘… a reputation for telling the truth can only be lost exactly once, and from then on the use of the phrase “US intelligence sources” became synonymous with “a conspiracy of barefaced liars.” Lies beget other lies, and pretty soon unbiased intelligence-gathering, rational analysis and proper mission planning become impossible’. – [collapsitarian] Dmitry Orlov

  14. Worried About Trump’s Mental Stability? The Worst Is Yet to Come
    By Mehdi Hasan

    “MH: How worried should we be that Trump has access to the nuclear codes?

    BL: Well, that is our critical concern: that his condition is actually probably far worse than people are detecting now; that [his] mental impairment goes deeper and is far more pervasive than people can understand when they are untrained in psychological matters. And that the worst is yet to come.”

    1. Harold
      The only opinion there worth considering from your link is that of his autobiographer. The trick-cyclists and professional opinion trumpeters can be dismissed out of hand.
      The biographer said :

      Tony Schwartz has called Trump a “sociopath” and has said “there is an excellent possibility” that the Trump presidency “will lead to the end of civilization.”

      It is almost axiomatic that all “leaders” in the West will be sociopaths due to the selection process. We would all be incinerated already had Killary Clinton took the reins. At least Trump can teleprompt read a speech with excellent method acting. Let us be thankful for small mercies.

      Give thanks for Telepromt Trump!

  15. Too long ago, far far far away in a distant galaxy, before I stumbled across veritable oracles of Truth & Light, someone pointed out convincedly at the time that Anti-WAR.com was a limited hang-out, pro-Zionist site, and Justin R. its progenitor. I note NO MENTION OF ISRAEL in this post by JR. I thought JR got eliminated in Dallas — or perhaps that was JFK — no mention of Israel in that event either until decades later.

    “Trump”, the puppet, will do as the puppeteers direct. The focus on Trump, in my opinion, is total and complete and obvious MISdirection. Why anyone would read further than the first couple of paragraphs of this post by JR (evidently not deceased), I do not understand. I read the whole post only to feel comfortable — even Justin-fied — to post a comment.

    To post this as a sop to “Trumpsters” with a promise for other, possibly equally disinfo-centric posts “anti-Trump”, boggles my mind. Have we not yet transcended Hegelian Dialectics 101?? Demoncraps and Repugnuts clearly kindergarten material, I suppose. On to TRUMP! I’d rather play Bridge. Foursome, anyone?

  16. Donald Trump – The End Of The American Dream

    Luke 18:21-23 (KJV)
    ” And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up. Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me. And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.”
    Private Property = Power
    Do not Enter = Perpetrators shall be Prosecuted(completely destroyed?).
    ” Consider Article 21, paragraph I of the American Convention on Human Rights, born of the Organization of American States:
    1. Everyone has the right to the use and enjoyment of his property. The law may subordinate such use and enjoyment to the interest of society.
    At least paragraph 2 offers some minor comfort:
    2. No one shall be deprived of his property except upon payment of just compensation, for reasons of public utility or social interest and in the cases and according to the forms established by law.”
    Daniel Walker

  17. Amazingly the Lobro Thesis is still valid.

    Up coming are the paper actions of cancelling the Iranian nuclear deal and getting the British to parade around on open seas with their aircraft carrier (costing the same to operate wherever it resides).

    Let us see what he does when the US three-letter-agency camaraderie with throat slitters and oil pirates in the far corner of Syria gets confronted with a professional army (quite soon). I know he said US throat slitting camaraderie should stop, but it is still going on.

    1. For infrequent readers of DM, the Lobro Thesis is that Trump is playing a clever game with Zionists and Globalists, two factions of the Tribe. He is giving them everything they want, but only on paper, or insignificantly. This allows a multi-polar world to strengthen.

  18. LOOKIE, LOOKIE.. REALITY HERE..!!! 🙂 🙂

    Trump has done everything to increase the wealth of Pharisee-Jew Bankers in London and NYC.!!

    Within his first 2 weeks in office:

    President Donald Trump took his first step toward pulling back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform act after just 13 days in office. And bank investors cheered…!!!

    Trump signed the executive order, which calls for the Treasury secretary to review the sweeping set of reforms created after the 2008-9 financial crisis. The news helped send shares of the seven biggest banks by market capitalization on the S&P 500 up by $35.4 billion. That’s a 3% jump from the seven companies’ combined market cap of $1.23 trillion, with Morgan Stanley leading the pack on a 5.6% jump.

    Other big banks benefitting from the order include Wells Fargo, which gained 2.2%; Bank of America, 2.5%; Citigroup, 3%; Goldman Sachs, 4.3%; and U.S. Bancorp, 1.2

    AND – just 2 weeks ago…..

    Bloomberg BOASTED:
    A $6.4 Billion Windfall Awaits Big U.S. Banks in Trump’s Tax Cut

    –Reducing corporate rate to 20% would shrink tax bills
    –Wells Fargo, Bank of America stand to benefit the most

    Banks stand to benefit more than other industries because they typically have fewer deductions.

    The top six firms — JPMorgan Chase & Co., Bank of America Corp., Wells Fargo & Co., Citigroup Inc., Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley — paid an average of 26 percent in federal taxes last year, almost twice the average for nonfinancial companies, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

    The Republican framework released Wednesday calls for lowering the corporate rate to 20 percent from 35 percent.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-29/a-6-4-billion-windfall-awaits-big-u-s-banks-in-trump-s-tax-cut

    AND… Rothschild’s Reporters GLOAT…

    Trump’s tax cut could hand WALL STREET BANKS a $6.4 billion profit boost
    The six largest US banks — JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley — stand to reap a massive windfall that would boost net income by 7% if the plan, which cuts the corporate tax rate to 20% from 35%, successfully clears Congress, according to a Bloomberg report.

    The big-six banks, which paid an average federal tax rate of 26% last year, would have an outsized benefit from the tax plan as they claim fewer deductions than most companies.
