Trump Comes Clean — From World’s Policeman to Thug Running a Global Protection Racket

By Finian Cunningham

December 28, 2018 “Information Clearing House” –    President Trump’s big announcement to pull US troops out of Syria and Afghanistan is now emerging less as a peace move, and more a rationalization of American military power in the Middle East.

“Trump is showing up US power for what it really is:
a global thug running a protection racket.”
— Finian Cunningham

“People know the status quo is deeply wrong. Seventy-five percent of Americans believe the government is thoroughly corrupt. Half see the regime as an immediate threat to their freedom. The U.S. government cages millions of nonviolent people and kills countless innocents abroad while stalking the rest of us. None of us is exempt from the fallout.”
— David Montgomery, here.


In a surprise visit to US forces in Iraq this week, Trump said he had no intention of withdrawing the troops in that country, who have been there for nearly 15 years since GW Bush invaded back in 2003. Hinting at private discussions with commanders in Iraq, Trump boasted that US forces would in the future launch attacks from there into Syria if and when needed. Presumably that rapid force deployment would apply to other countries in the region, including Afghanistan.

In other words, in typical business-style transactional thinking, Trump sees the pullout from Syria and Afghanistan as a cost-cutting exercise for US imperialism. Regarding Syria, he has bragged about Turkey being assigned, purportedly, to “finish off” terror groups. That’s Trump subcontracting out US interests.

Critics and supporters of Trump are confounded.

After his Syria and Afghanistan pullout call, domestic critics and NATO allies have accused him of walking from the alleged “fight against terrorism” and of ceding strategic ground to US adversaries Russia and Iran.

Meanwhile, Trump’s supporters have viewed his decision in more benign light, cheering the president for “sticking it to” the deep state and military establishment, assuming he’s delivering on electoral promises to end overseas wars.

However, neither view gets what is going on.

Trump is not scaling back US military power; he is rationalizing it like a cost-benefit analysis, as perhaps only a real-estate-wheeler-dealer-turned president would appreciate. Trump is not snubbing US militarism or NATO allies, nor is he letting loose an inner peace spirit. He is as committed to projecting American military as ruthlessly and as recklessly as any other past occupant of the White House. The difference is Trump wants to do it on the cheap.

Here’s what he said to reporters on Air Force One before touching down in Iraq:

“The United States cannot continue to be the policeman of the world. It’s not fair when the burden is all on us, the United States… We are spread out all over the world. We are in countries most people haven’t even heard about. Frankly, it’s ridiculous.” He added: “We’re no longer the suckers, folks.”

Laughably, Trump’s griping about US forces “spread all over the world” unwittingly demonstrates the insatiable, monstrous nature of American militarism. But Trump paints this vice as a virtue, which, he complains, Washington gets no thanks for from the 150-plus countries around the globe that its forces are present in.

As US troops greeted him in Iraq, the president made explicit how the new American militarism would henceforth operate. “America shouldn’t be doing the fighting for every nation on earth, not being reimbursed in many cases at all. If they want us to do the fighting, they also have to pay a price,” Trump said.

This reiterates a big bugbear for this president in which he views US allies and client regimes as “not pulling their weight” in terms of military deployment. Trump has been browbeating European NATO members to cough up more on military budgets, and he has berated the Saudis and other Gulf Arab regimes to pay more for American interventions.

Notably, however, Trump has never questioned the largesse that US taxpayers fork out every year to Israel in the form of nearly $4 billion in military aid. To be sure, that money is not a gift because much of it goes back to the Pentagon from sales of fighter jets and missile systems.

The long-held notion that the US has served as the “world’s policeman” is, of course, a travesty. Since WWII, all presidents and the Washington establishment have constantly harped on, with self-righteousness, about America’s mythical role as guarantor of global security.

Dozens of illegal wars on almost every continent and millions of civilian deaths attest to the real, heinous conduct of American militarism as a weapon to secure US corporate capitalism.

But with US economic power in historic decline amid a national debt now over $22 trillion, Washington can no longer afford its imperialist conduct in the traditional mode of direct US military invasions and occupations.

Perhaps, it takes a cost-cutting, raw-toothed capitalist like Trump to best understand the historic predicament, even if only superficially.

This gives away the real calculation behind his troop pullout from Syria and Afghanistan. Iraq is going to serve as a new regional hub for force projection on a demand-and-supply basis. In addition, more of the dirty work can be contracted out to Washington’s clients like Turkey, Israel and Saudi Arabia, who will be buying even more US weaponry to prop the military-industrial complex.

This would explain why Trump made his hurried, unexpected visit to Iraq this week. Significantly, he said: “A lot of people are going to come around to my way of thinking”, regarding his decision on withdrawing forces from Syria and Afghanistan.

Since his troop pullout plan announced on December 19, there has been serious pushback from senior Pentagon figures, hawkish Republicans and Democrats, and the anti-Trump media. The atmosphere is almost seditious against the president. Trump flying off to Iraq on Christmas night was reportedly his first visit to troops in an overseas combat zone since becoming president two years ago.

What Trump seemed to be doing was reassuring the Pentagon and corporate America that he is not going all soft and dovish. Not at all. He is letting them know that he is aiming for a leaner, meaner US military power, which can save money on the number of foreign bases by using rapid reaction forces out of places like Iraq, as well as by subcontracting operations out to regional clients.

Thus, Trump is not coming clean out of any supposed principle when he cuts back US forces overseas. He is merely applying his knack for screwing down costs and doing things on the cheap as a capitalist tycoon overseeing US militarism.

During past decades when American capitalism was relatively robust, US politicians and media could indulge in the fantasy of their military forces going around the world in large-scale formations to selflessly “defend freedom and democracy.”

Today, US capitalism is broke. It simply can’t sustain its global military empire. Enter Donald Trump with his “business solutions.”

But in doing so, this president, with his cheap utilitarianism and transactional exploitative mindset, lets the cat out of the bag. As he says, the US cannot be the world’s policeman. Countries are henceforth going to have to pay for “our protection.”

Inadvertently, Trump is showing up US power for what it really is: a global thug running a protection racket.

It’s always been the case. Except now it’s in your face.

Trump is no Smedley Butler, the former Marine general who in the 1930s condemned US militarism as a Mafia operation. This president is stupidly revealing the racket, while still thinking it is something virtuous.

  1. Another thought on removing the US forces from syria.
    Should the US and or the Zionist entity be considering an attack on the Resistance in Lebanon or Iran , those 2000 or so US personal would have been overrun , killed, or worse still for Trump in the run down to election , taken prisoner.
    On the protection racket charge, yep, right on, I have “Fat Mike” (pompeo) as don Trumps enforcer in this sad remake of an 80s Hollywood gangster movie.
    This could explain Don Trumps Mexican wall, by most accounts the Mexican cartels are taking over the family business.

    Side note, I do wish darkmoon had a little more content regarding those who are physically confronting the Zionist, the mainly Iranian inspired Resistance movement is a movement worth getting behind, even if only with internet propaganda efforts.

  2. Some Jews have a different take on things. Martin Indyk, the top Jewish Neo-Con tweeted:

    Trump: “We give Israel billions of dollars, they’ll be okay.” This cavalier attitude is deeply worrying. Ignores the role of US as force multiplier for Israeli deterrence. From here it’s a short step to Trump asking: why are we giving Israel so much money?

    I hope he is right.

    1. “Some Jews have a different take on things. […]”

      The problem is, when dealing with jews, you generally can’t take what they say at face value. For example, is he saying that because he’s really worried, or is he saying that because he knows that people like you will make comments like you just did, in forums like this, thereby keeping the preposterous 4D chess theory alive for those people who desperately need, want and deserve to be continually deceived?

      1. The problem is, when dealing with jews, you generally can’t take what they say at face value.

        Noooo, really? I don’t believe it. Where did you come up with that idea anyway? Abe says it smells of “anti-Semitism.” I mean, if you can’t believe a Jew, who can you believe?

        Everyone knows Jew are just smarter and work harder than everyone else, that’s why they hold high positions in government and have so much money. So who’s favored in the big game tonight?

      2. Hehe – good to see you are alive and kicking, Arch.

        All the best for 2019, and may the truth destroy them all.

  3. The problem is not only Trump as the jewish pied piper. The real thing is that there are so many working in the miltary behaving as paid hookers to protect the jewish status quo. Without this military it is over with the jewish power. Maybe the military should rethink their role and quit their jobs.This is wishful thinking of course knowing how egoistic and shortsighted people, the military are. They love their salary and career and don’t care about what is good and what is wrong.

  4. Pay your dues shouts Trump, love of the US alone doesn’t pay the bills. Deadbeats that oppose the US war machine end up with a stick up their backsides or have to hide before being hanged.
    Loyalty is demanded from a mob boss, orders cannot be refused.

    1. Hi Melvin,
      Perhaps your mob boss alpha male “partner” stuck it up your backside too many times. Couldn’t refuse his orders could you? Anyway…..back on topic. Trump can’t play chess of any dimension but his handlers can. Only time can tell. A 🐅 doesn’t change it’s stripes. The Zio beast doesn’t give up easy. It’s just regrouping. For now, only speculation. 🙂

  5. “Dozens of illegal wars on almost every continent and millions of civilian deaths attest to the real, heinous conduct of American militarism as a weapon to secure US corporate capitalism.”

    On the contrary, this imperial warmongering madness has nothing to do with “US corporate capitalism” (whatever that exactly is).

    “Thus, Trump is not coming clean out of any supposed principle when he cuts back US forces overseas. He is merely applying his knack for screwing down costs and doing things on the cheap as a capitalist tycoon overseeing US militarism.”

    Replace “capitalist tycoon” with “utilitarian zionist warmonger” and I would agree completely. Apparently orange clown’s real problem with his predecessors, e.g. Obama, was their poor managerial skills/lack of business acumen in managing the evil empire’s affairs. Let’s face it, Obama was just paying too much for a gallon of blood. Orange clown, the shrewd businessman that he claims to be, will get twice the volume of blood per imperial dollar spent than Obama did, and that should please everyone. Even the antiwar crowd has something to be thankful for, right?

    “Trump is no Smedley Butler, the former Marine general who in the 1930s condemned US militarism as a Mafia operation. This president is stupidly revealing the racket, while still thinking it is something virtuous.”

    Yet orange clown continues to get lots of moral support from people who should know better (or at least, people who should hold off on the praise until they see what’s next on the agenda). For example, Rand Paul has already publicly stated that he’s “very proud of [orange clown]” for his decision to withdraw from Syria. And of course the shameless presstitute Paul Craig Roberts, in his latest essay “Blessed Are The Warmongers,” predictably uses the occasion to reassert his orange-clown-as-closet-peacenik fantasy:

    “There are in office nowhere in the West any real leaders, only servants of the Oligarchy and vassals of the servants. Donald Trump intended to be otherwise and might yet break out of the orchestrated existence the military/security complex, Democratic Party and presstitute media have created for him.”

    Oh well, on the bright side, perhaps orange clown’s apologists will be forced to abandon one of their favorite propaganda tools, the orange-clown-as-powerless-bystander theory.

  6. could it be Trump goes along to get along until a trap is set?
    i am an american nationalist, and believe we should give him all the rope he needs.
    as long as we hold the end of the rope. i have my yellow safety vest

    1. “could it be Trump goes along to get along until a trap is set?”

      Many people have been making suggestions like that for the last two years. It’s known as the “4D chess theory” and it’s been rather thoroughly debunked here and elsewhere.

      Whenever orange clown does something (or fails to do something) significant, and you’re trying to figure out what it means, you really have to put it into proper context by considering how it fits into “the big picture.” And the big picture looks very bleak, IMO.

      I can’t wait to see how orange clown’s apologists will deal with his abandonment of the INF treaty – an act which will prove to the whole world (if any more proof is needed) that orange clown is willing to risk planetary extinction for the sake of the jewish-supremacist agenda of world domination and control.

      1. The power behind the power, that controls virtually every aspect of the USA, has had more than one hundred years to consolidate their power structure.
        I do not know about Trump and his real intentions, but to claim no revolutionary change after two years in office is a sign of weakness (or collaboration) is a bit premature? But I presume that is the fallacy of democracy – impatience. Understandably knowing he does not have much time anyway.
        I find that most people grossly underestimate the power of globalist/lefties and their masters.

      2. “The power behind the power, that controls virtually every aspect of the USA, has had more than one hundred years to consolidate their power structure.”

        And one of the things they’ve accordingly done was to consolidate power in the executive branch, which means that more than ever before they absolutely MUST control that office. Recall that JFK was president (and RFK would’ve been president) at a time when the office had less power than it does now and at a time when the “deep state” was probably less exposed than it is now…and yet they both had to be eliminated. Just think if teflon-don-the-con-man had been for real and actually did order an investigation into 9/11, for example. It’d probably all be over for the “deep state.”

        “I do not know about Trump and his real intentions…”

        I bet if mr. diplomacy and peace had slaughtered your family with missiles – the way he routinely slaughters innocent people in Syria for example – you’d have a better idea.

        “…but to claim no revolutionary change after two years in office is a sign of weakness (or collaboration) is a bit premature?”

        Two years isn’t enough for orange clown to stop making everything worse (e.g. relations with Russia) and perhaps take a few baby steps in the right direction? Seriously?

        “But I presume that is the fallacy of democracy – impatience. ”

        LOL! What “democracy” would that be? Anyway, it’s not a matter of “impatience” it’s a matter of planetary survival. We need to change the course of “U.S. foreign policy” *before* the missiles fly; afterward it’ll be too late.

  7. On 12-22 Cunningham wrote an article praising Mr. Trump for vowing to remove the troops from Syria, while, at the same time, he villified the presstitutes and the rest of the deep state for their mass opposition to it (“Blinded by Anti-Trumpism,” Information Clearing House). Seven days later he now says that Trump’s reasons are nefarious. I’d like to know what happened in the past week for Cunningham to so change his mind.

    1. This is from Penny’s Blog today…..

      “The withdrawal of the US military from the country is currently in a “pause situation,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R- SC) told reporters on Monday after having lunch with President Trump at the White House.
      The US troop withdrawal from Syria needs a “pause” in order to protect the Kurds, the potential interests of Israel, and to prevent Iran from scoring a big win in Syria, a top GOP senator has said.

      Apart from that, Trump is “worried” about the “potential dangers to Israel,” and will work with Ankara to ensure that “we don’t have a war between the Turks and our allies the Kurds,” Graham revealed.”

  8. I don’t recall candidate Trump promising to have so many Jews in his administration. From the Times of Israel no less:-

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/meet-the-jews-in-the-trump-administration/

    Every move the President proposes must be scrutinized and approved by Israel. I am sure that all the senior military know this, but they have not come out publicly against this……and 911 is still there, with an almost 100% Jewish cast of characters.

    I would love to be fly on the wall at private military conversations.

    I hope that one day they will break the taboo and talk about Israel’s role in events.

    If Israel didn’t want troops moved they wouldn’t have been moved.

    1. “…If Israel didn’t want troops moved they wouldn’t have been moved…”

      Then you will have to explain why the Israeli press and Israeli politicians all expressed their disappointment with this move of Trump. Don’t tell me that they all just pretend in order to deceive the world. In Israel Jews are pretty open about what they really think.

      1. In this case it is about facts. The withdrawal of American troops from Syria is bad for Israel and the Israelis openly say so. No way they have manipulated Trump to act against their interests.
        People who think that everything that happens in the world is a conspiracy have lost their common sense.

      2. “Don’t tell me that they all just pretend in order to deceive the world. In Israel Jews are pretty open about what they really think.”

        So the “holocaust” actually happened? And the attack on the USS Liberty really was an “accident”? And the Iranians really are churning out nukes?

      3. “In this case it is about facts.”

        Isn’t it always? The problem is we generally don’t know all the facts.

        “The withdrawal of American troops from Syria is bad for Israel and the Israelis openly say so.”

        For all we know Erdogan may have threatened to quit NATO if orange clown didn’t get out of Syria. And what would be worse for “jewish interests,” Turkey switching sides and perhaps the beginning of the end of NATO, or a few thousand U.S. troops withdrawn from Syria?

        “No way they have manipulated Trump to act against their interests.”

        Why would they manipulate orange clown to act against their interests?

      4. FR – I’ll double that.
        The attitude of attributing everything to be controlled by the jews is a virtue for the nihilist.
        Give Trump his due to pulling out. Demand that he does so elsewhere as well.

      5. “The attitude of attributing everything to be controlled by the jews is a virtue for the nihilist.”

        I think the trees may be blocking your view of the forest. Do they control orange clown’s bathroom habits? Probably not, but they have enough control to destroy. Jews are *DESTROYERS* before they’re anything else, IMO.

        They have enough arrogance to spectacularly fail to see things like the rise of Russia, and enough control to make our last presidential election a contest between two mentally and morally defective narcissists, neither of which should be allowed anywhere near the levers of power. And now we’re suffering the ineluctable consequences: the orange clown administration is apparently in chaos, which is the only possible result. (Or to put it another way: “Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad” or something like that).

        Anyway, as I’ve been saying here (forever it seems like): (1) the political ascendancy of orange clown is apparently a sign of jewish desperation; and (2) the orange clown administration is stuck in the same predicament that the obama administration was stuck in, i.e., all the low-hanging fruit has already been picked.

        Thus the ignorant, shallow, feckless, stupid, narcissistic and utterly unprincipled orange clown can wave his hands and make threats and move the troops around here and there and kill a few people here and there and break a few things here and there, and hire and fire all the unreasonable people in the world, and rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic, but at the end of the day, the jews and their pathetic political puppets can only do one of two fundamental things: give up on the idea of complete world domination and control or start WW3.

      6. No, it’s an excellent comment. Some people have a problem thinking clearly. All of the wars in the middle east and the presence of American troops there have all been for the benefit of Israel. It has cost the US many billions of dollars, turned countries that did nothing to the US into our enemies and made us poorer and only benefitted Israel. And contrary to what is often said, that these wars have been a failure, is completely incorrect. The wars have been a smashing success and achieved their primary objective, which has always been to smash and destroy Israel’s enemies. They want the US to continue sending them billions of dollars every year, to fight their wars for them and to give them unfaltering diplomatic support at all times. They want American troops there, because the US has helped destroy Syria for Israel. If not for the US, Syria would have gotten rid of the terrorists a long time ago and it wouldn’t have much of its country destroyed. Same for Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, etc. It is all done for Israel. If the US conducted foreign policy in its own and European interests, we would have good relations with countries in the middle east. Likewise, the terrorist problem exists because of US foreign policy against Arabs. 9/11 and the entire terrorist problem is because of US foreign policy.

        If Osama Bin Laden had anything to do with 9/11, then he told the US exactly why 9/11 was carried out. He said it was because of US support for Israel and the American military presence in Arab countries.

      7. “For all we know Erdogan may have threatened to quit NATO if orange clown didn’t get out of Syria.” Or maybe the Dalai Lama told Trump to pull out, or maybe an extraterrestrial being came down and told Trump to pull out. Anything is possible. But since Erdogan has been a constant enemy of Syria and in fact Russia has been calling the shots, Putin put Erdogan in his place, it’s not likely the US pulled out of Syria because of Erdogan.

      8. Oh my God, Turkey might pull out of NATO. How would we continue to threaten Russia and have the world talking about a third world war if Turkey pulled out of NATO? What a disaster that would be.

        NATO spends billions for Israel too, occupying Afghanistan for about 15 years now. World peace might break out if NATO was disbanded and if the US pursued good relations with Russia, as Trump suggested should be US policy when he ran for president, it would be better for everyone, except perhaps Israel.

      9. @ Peter

        “Some people have a problem thinking clearly.”

        Maybe it’s something in your diet? Perhaps you have some kind of food intolerance causing your brain fog?

        “All of the wars in the middle east and the presence of American troops there have all been for the benefit of Israel.”

        Wrong; they’ve generally been done in pursuit of the jewish-supremacist agenda. Whether anyone actually realized anything you could call “benefit” is open to debate.

        “It has cost the US many billions of dollars, turned countries that did nothing to the US into our enemies and made us poorer and only benefitted Israel.”

        Jews do what they do because they’re evil, not because of what some third-party might perceive as some kind of “benefit” to “Israel.”

        “And contrary to what is often said, that these wars have been a failure, is completely incorrect.”

        You’re just waving your hands and blurting out ambiguous words. Unfortunately the situation is a little more complicated than the simple black-and-white picture you seem to “think” it is. Define “benefit”; define “failure”.

        As I already pointed out, jews do what they do because they’re evil, and the actions of evil people are sometimes difficult to understand, even for an intellectual giant like you. Please explain: How did the Tate-La Bianca murders “benefit” Charles Manson and the “Manson family”? How does it “benefit” “Israel” to have Europe overrun with Muslim refugees, for example? How does jew-inspired confiscatory property taxation in the U.S. “benefit” “Israel”?

        “The wars have been a smashing success and achieved their primary objective, which has always been to smash and destroy Israel’s enemies.”

        A smashing “success”? Let’s see; Assad is still in power, and unlike before, he now has a fairly effective multi-layer air-defense system including the S300. Russia now has a serious military presence in Syria, along with Iran and Hezbollah.

        Also, Iraq is still there and unlike before, the jews’ ostensible arch-enemy, Iran, now has much more influence there.

        Also, Afghanistan is still there and after all these years, and the Taliban are nowhere near being defeated.

        Moreover, while the jews and their U.S. puppet state were squandering everything, Russia was studying U.S. weaknesses and re-arming, with the result that Russia is now far ahead of the U.S. in critically important military technology, e.g. missiles and missile defense systems; so far ahead that the U.S. will likely never catch up.

        You would call this a “smashing success”?

        “They want American troops there, because the US has helped destroy Syria for Israel. If not for the US, Syria would have gotten rid of the terrorists a long time ago and it wouldn’t have much of its country destroyed.”

        You seem to be laboring under the idea that you can understand what the jews are doing in the world
        around you without taking into consideration the nature of the jew. And you’re wrong. As I’ve pointed out here many times before, they’re “devil-worshipers” (i.e. they’re calculating) and they’re “demon-possessed” (i.e. they’re inherently evil and sometimes can’t help themselves).

        They want everything; they’re jews. They want Rachel Corrie dead, they want to plunder her organs, and they also want to be unaccountable for it. They want to demolish the WTC towers and they also want to collect a big insurance payout, and they also want to blame “Arabs” for it. They want, want, want and want some more. They do what they do because they’re evil.

        I hope that clears things up for you a little bit.

      10. @ Peter

        “‘For all we know Erdogan may have threatened to quit NATO if orange clown didn’t get out of Syria.’ Or maybe the Dalai Lama told Trump to pull out, or maybe an extraterrestrial being came down and told Trump to pull out.”

        I’m sorry that the discussion seems to be over your head, but I’ll be glad to try to explain it in simpler terms for your benefit. My point was that we don’t have all the facts here. For all we know, orange clown may not even intend to pull out of Syria. Maybe he thought the Syrians would fire missiles at the jew aircraft that attacked Syria while hiding behind civilian airliners a few days ago, thereby creating a pretext to stay.

        Anyway, what’s the point of having a few thousand U.S. troops in Syria? How is it anything more than a hopeless stalemate; a stalemate that could be a tripwire for WW3? Perhaps one jewish faction doesn’t want to risk war with Russia until orange clown pulls out of the INF treaty and surrounds Russia with missiles in Europe.

        Perhaps one jewish faction doesn’t want to risk having Turkey switch sides over a failed plan to break up Syria? It’s all speculation at this point.

        Who are you to speak for the elders of zion? Who appointed you as the ultimate arbiter of what’s good for the jews?

  9. for what it’s worth –
    when the donald uses the phrase ‘united states’, he is referring to the corporation – united states corporation… for practical purposes the united states corporation is ultimately owned by the vatican, el poppa…
    if he calls it the ‘united states of america’, which i don’t think he does, he’s referring to the ‘constitutional republic’…
    “Dozens of illegal wars on almost every continent and millions of civilian deaths attest to the real, heinous conduct of American militarism as a weapon to secure US corporate capitalism.”
    you got the ‘us corporate capitalism’ part right…
    but the wars have all been ‘legal’, not ‘illegal’…
    ‘illegal’ might really mean ‘constitutional’..
    ‘legalities’ are effectively us corporate policies’…
    what they have not been is ‘lawful’, which is done in accordance with the ‘usa constitution’……
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTAPxMHcZds
    i’m just hoping trump stops immigration and secures the border before the mud people totally overrun the place..
    seen any gang tags on signs around where you live lately?
    with this last killing of a policeman in california by another undocumented mexican gang thug, the local sheriff expressed his disapproval of the sanctuary state policy enacted by the dems in sacramento…
    hopefully at some point enough of local law enforcement will get the real meaning of who they are in this fight for the usa, stop sucking up to the big fed religio-corporate deep state murder machine and start standing some ground for what’s right… stop letting them get away with murder…

    1. @ Franklin Ryckaert
      @ Harold Smith

      Franklin Ryckaert is making a valid point. If the general feeling in Israel is that Israelis are now feeling pretty insecure at Uncle Sam “abandoning” them to the mercies of the hostile Arab nations around them, by withdrawing American troops from Syria, this ought to be pointed out. After all, the Israelis will now have to “fight their own battles” to protect their ill-gotten gains in the Golan heights — stolen from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War. What if Syria, with the help of Russia, should try to recapture the Golan Heights? What if Trump were to say, “Sorry, fight your own battles! Why should American soldiers be forced to fight and die for you Jews?”

      I think Ryckaert is right to point all this out.

      However, I can see Harold Smith pointing out the obvious flaws in Ryckaert’s argument. His objections, I imagine, would be along these lines:

      (1) While Israelis in general may feel insecure at apparent American “abandonment”, the Jewish bigwigs in America who call the shots and indeed the Netanyahu government itself, are secretly untroubled by Trump’s latest “chess move”. For a cunning chess move it certainly appears to be.

      (2) America’s apparent non-involvement will give the Israelis the perfect excuse they need to deploy nuclear weapon in “self-defence”. Who would condemn Israel if it nuked Damascus and pleaded desperate circumstances and the need to protect themselves and “the Jewish homeland” from a “Second Holocaust”?

      Apart from this, there’s nothing to stop America intervening from Iraq to come to Israel’s rescue should Israel be attacked. Helping the Jews would then be seen not so much as a pro-Zionist gesture, the thing expected of a “Zionist Puppet”, but as the need to stand up against the traditional enemy Russia and the evils of world Communism. Whichever way you look at it, Trump seems to have his ass covered.

      I will allow Ryckaert and Harold Smith to respond to this comment if they see fit.

      1. @ Sardonicus

        Have you seen the following? Apparently Lindsey Graham – who initially criticized orange clown for withdrawing from Syria – recently had a meeting with orange clown on the subject, and orange clown has apparently assuaged Graham’s fears that he was doing something in America’s best interest rather than Israel’s.

      2. Thanks, Harold. I wasn’t aware of that. BTW, I can’t access the Washington Post article because I am reluctant to click on any site that forces you to accept their cookies.

      3. Apologies Harold. I didn’t see your link before posting mine much later…..It is on the Penny for Your Thoughts Blog…no cookies 🙂

      4. Franklins point makes perfect sense. I don’t see Harold’s point which seems to be whatever the US does, even if it appears to be completely against Israel’s interest and stated desire, it is always done because Jews pulled the strings – always . So, if the US should drop an atomic bomb on Tel Aviv, you can be sure we did it because the Jews pressured us into it.

      5. “Franklins point makes perfect sense. I don’t see Harold’s point which seems to be whatever the US does, even if it appears to be completely against Israel’s interest and stated desire, it is always done because Jews pulled the strings – always .”

        Coming from you, that’s a great endorsement. Thanks.

      6. @ Peter

        Since being inaugurated, orange clown’s done nothing but jew dirty work. And now he does one thing – or at least claims to be going to do one thing (for reasons that aren’t yet clear) – which seems to go against your subjective view of what’s “beneficial” to “Israel” under the circumstances, and you’re actually going to compare it to dropping an atomic bomb on Tel Aviv?

        And then you expect to be taken seriously? Maybe next you’ll be claiming that Lindsey Graham is a patriot who puts America first?

  10. ADMIN: An excellent comment from TROJ, for once on topic and showing genuine insight:

    I don’t think Trump would do anything to undermine the jews’ Oded Yinon plan for the Middle East. He’s taking the troops out of Syria and moving them to a U.S. military base in Iraq right on the border of Syria.

    He said [ to paraphrase ]: “We can always attack Syria from Iraq”. I’m sure the move out of Syria was co-ordinated with Netanyahu and the jews in Israel. ZOG has something up its sleeve with this withdrawal from Syria. He’s moving the troops out of Syria in order avoid a military confrontation [ war ] with Turkey. That does NOT mean he’s opposed to the jews’ Oded Yinon plan. It means he [ and Netanyahu ] are going to pursue the jews’ Oded Yinon plan in a slightly different way.

    ODED YINON PLAN = Israel expands into GREATER ISRAEL, stretching from the Nile to the Euphrates, as seen here:

    https://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/greater-israel.png

    Trump is a lot better to have for a president than Hillary, but still, he is NOT going to do anything to undermine the jews’ Oded Yinon plan for the Middle East — although he’s far better than Hillary, he does leave a lot to be desired.

    1. “US sources: Israeli F-16s fired Delilah cruise missiles over Syria from Lebanese air space.
      After the F-16 jets failed to connect to their targets,
      F-35s joined the second wave.

      This of course begs the question of why the
      S-300/400? failed to engage the F-35?
      This is right outside of Damascus and surely the S-300 are there.

      F-16, unable to approach the targets for the real fear of being shot down by S-300 or Pantsir, must fire missiles from afar but F-35 seemed to have no problem evading these systems and striking targets right outside of Damascus.

      Please don’t target the reporter. It’s better to know than not know.

      1. @ Hp

        Please don’t target the reporter. It’s better to know than not know.

        No one is attacking you personally for your comment, Homer. If that’s what you think. 🙂

        What have you said, after all, that is so controversial? What are you trying to prove? That Israel is now shown to be helpless and toothless against superior Syrian missile systems? and that Trump is a good guy for getting out of Syria and leaving shitty little Israel to face the doom music alone?

        If this is what you are saying, I need to point out three things to you:

        (1) A war between Israel and Syria is now in full swing, with constant exchange of missiles between both sides, and Trump has contributed to this (if not engineered it) by his withdrawal from Syria into neighbouring Iraq. From where, incidentally, as has been pointed out repeatedly, America can easily intervene if ever things get too hot for helpless little Israel with her 100 nukes! 🙂

        (2) The source you quoted for your “inside knowledge” (DEBKA) is widely suspected of being a TAINTED SOURCE (!), a front for Israel and Jewish interests. Hence this opening comment from your link which you fail for some reason to quote:

        “US military sources disclose… Syrian and Lebanese sources describe… Social media carry photos… Witnesses attest… According to Arab sources… Newsweek magazine quotes… Other American sources report…”

        So much for Debka’s very own “intelligence sources”!

        So why should we trust this dodgy site from which your gather your superior wisdom, hmm? The article doesn’t give ONE solid fact. Everything is “alleged” and comes from some anonymous source.

        (3) You also fail to quote these two highly significant comments from the same Debka article you set such store by:

        Yes sad and concerning. If Israel is cornered, nukes will probably be used.

        Exactly my point, Homer!

        Trump has enabled Israel to move into a position where she can now claim: “We had no choice! We were cornered! We had to use our nukes in self-defence! We had to protect the Jewish homeland from extinction — from a second Holocaust!”

      2. Outstanding comments, Sardonicus! Well-argued and fact-filled and of an extremely high intellectual caliber! Unfortunately, your critical comments will make you more enemies than friends on this website, where Trump worship appears to be the reigning religion among a small core of wishful thinkers.

      3. What has Trump done to deserve his deification? Nothing whatever! Just posturing, pulling faces, breaking promises, and accomplishing zilch to make life better for ordinary white Americans who see their country being invaded by hordes of dangerous foreigners.

        The only ones who have seen their living standards rise under Donald Trump are the 1-percenters, the rich plutocratic elite, many of whom happen to be JEWS!

        If Trump hated the Jews so much, as the 4D-Chess theorists keep babbling on about, why does he have so many Jews crawling over his lap in the highest seats of his administration?

        Answer that!!!

      4. C’mon Sard, don’t be such a nitpicker.
        It was a courtesy to me and any who might work themselves into a lather over bad news about their belief in the invincible S-300. Because it’s obviously not, is it?

    2. I’m glad you like my post, uncle. Though I notice that even when you like a post of mine you still edit it, abridge it. Why did you edit/abridge/delete the last paragraph of my post, the paragraph about Uncle Sam’s two wars against Iraq?

      ADMIN TOBY: Because your final paragraph weakened the impact of your comment as a whole. You have not learned the lesson that sometimes more means less. There’s such a thing as “gilding the lily”, i.e., adding little frills and fancies and “after thoughts” that come as an anti-climax. A let-down.

      A good comedian never spoils his joke by adding a paragraph of explanation after his punchline. He stops at the punchline. Understand?

      1. Point well taken, uncle. I won’t argue this one with you. In fact, I’m proud of you for finally finding an intelligent reason to abridge/truncate a post and being able to articulate the reason in a rational way. You’re usually incapable of explaining why you abridge my posts so I’m pleasantly surprised that you actually had some kind of spark of intelligence so I won’t argue this one with you. And I *wink* *wink* vow to never say anything negative about anyone in the Bush family ever again, *grin*. Especially granma and granpa, I will never say anything negative about those TWO ever again! I know you find it offensive whenever I say anything negative about anyone in the Bush family, especially when I fail to show granma and granpa the utmost respect. May they rest in peace, those TWO, 😔.

    3. Now it’s obvious why I said Please don’t shoot, innit?
      The knee jerkers start convulsing an firing ad hominem shots and accusations if anyone pops their balloon or even so much as offers a different perspective. I never said a single word about Trump. I didn’t have to, did I? People will speak for me, I knew.

      You still don’t understand what 5-th generation means and is, do you?
      Well you soon will and no I’m not rooting for the Devil, just trying to offer a heads up.
      My mistake, I guess..

    4. … of Pope Benedict XV 1920:
      “the advent of a world State is required and confidently expected by all the worst and most disturbed elements. This State, based on the principles of absolute equality between men and a community of possessions, would banish all national loyalties. In it would be given no recognition of the authority of a father over his children, or of God over human society. If these ideas are put into practice, there will be inevitably a reign of unheard-of terror. ‘

  11. Mob bosses or dictators ruthlessly crush the opposition. Hitler crushed the brown shirts to become a dictator. Trump cannot wear the title of a mob boss or dictator, he never ruthlessly crushed Hillary or any of his opposition. But if his political enemies try to jail or hurt his family, Trump will become a mob boss, roundup the guilty, and deep six them.

  12. The fact is that the Zionists ruled the U.S. and have since 1913 when they got their privately owned and UNCONSTITUTIONAL FED and IRS through a corrupt congress and POTUS and from that point on America has been forced to fight wars for the Zionist banking kabal for the profit of the Zionists kabal .

    Trump is just another Zionist controlled puppet and the last patriot POTUS was JFK and they shot him in full view of the American people and for good measure blew up the WTC in full view of the American people , just to show us who are real rulers are.

    If anyone wants to see how the Zionist kabal did 911 go to drjudywood.com and read her book Where Did The Towers Go and watch her videos on youtube, the towers and 5 other WTC buildings were destroyed by DEWS ie DIRECT ENGERY WEAPONS!

  13. Dog people.

    America has quite literally gone to the dogs because Jews have taken a white proclivity and twisted it to yet another time consuming activity that takes attention away from the Jews’ genocidal policies destroying western civilization.

    People cannot grasp how all these time consuming issues have been unleashed by Jews with malevolent intent. Talk to someone with an autistic or mentally ill child that will never be normal. Ask them how much of their lives are consumed with caring for their critically impaired children. Because the change has been gradual, many forget how relatively few of these people there once were in relation to the size of American culture.

    This was one of the prime reasons for primitive cultures’ infanticide, their culture simply could not support caring for such labor intensive individuals. Well Jews have certainly fixed that; now society can support these people, but it is costing Americans dearly. These costs are not only in terms of money, but more importantly time and effort. That’s what Jews are really stealing from us, our time and effort – they’re stealing our lives.

    Likewise, Jew policies have done away with the institutions that once took care of these people, unloading them into society at large, with families and organizations ill equipped to deal with them. It’s all part of the Jews’ plan to destroy white civilization.

    But then, Jews always provide destructive pastimes for everyone. Whether it be sports or – dogs, there is always something designed to consume time that might be spent awakening to the Jews’ malevolent presence. I can remember when people had children, not dogs. In fact, the people I remember with dogs from my childhood, were largely childless couples. Perhaps little has changed in that regard, outside the fact there are a lot more people today without children.

    From time immemorial, dogs have been companion to man because of their useful nature. Dogs used to have a symbiotic relationship with man. Today the vast majority of dogs are like Jews, nothing more than parasites on the people supporting them.

    Modern, domestic dogs are like having a toddler that will never grow up. One must care for domestic house dogs as they would a child; a time consuming process that unlike an investment in children, will never be of benefit to anyone, save perhaps those longing for the slavish love and attention their dogs provide them.

    Today I see white males pushing baby carriages, an act that not too many years ago would have garnered humiliating ridicule from other males. The real tragedy today is how often these carriages have dogs in them instead of babies. I see elderly, white males, trim, well groomed, pushing expensive baby carriages with little-shit, foo-foo dogs riding happily inside. The sight is really quite sickening for those deprogrammed from the Jew agenda.

    By contrast, I see hard, lean white females with “six pack abs” and no tits. But then, I suppose tits are superfluous for women who will never breastfeed a baby. As my uncle used to say, “it’s useless as tits on a boar.” White women are just as infected with the dog disease as their male mates.

    I remember mothers putting their foot down against any pet that took more care than a goldfish. Two or three children were more than enough effort without having to care for a pet. In those days of the female’s unimpaired maternal instinct, it was typically mom that had to care for the pet as well as the children. All that is gone now, swept away by the monstrous, murderous, social parasite called “JEW.” America has at last, “gone to the dogs.”

    I know what you’re thinking, “come on Arch, you cannot be serious, saying that Jews have used dogs to destabilize America.” Allow me to clarify. Jews take the white man’s natural tendencies and twist them into perverse manners that suit their destructive agenda. As I pointed out earlier, dogs have always been here, but Jews have twisted the white man’s natural proclivity for domestic animals, perversely shaping its acceptance and growth like a malignant cancer until it has overwhelmed our society.

    Sure white males have always had their “feminine side,” but Jews convinced the male it’s acceptable to act and dress like women. What is truly bizarre is how these males parody the 1950s, June Cleaver role model. It’s no mistake these transvestites are encouraged to become the image of the traditional female, heterosexual men long for, but can no longer find down at the local “meat market.” As I said, Jews have something for everyone. It just may not be what they expected in the long run.

    Thus, “trannys” joyfully embrace everything “modern” women hate about their former feminine role; carefully coiffed hairdos, makeup, girdles, stockings, petticoats, crinoline dresses and painted fingernails. What’s’ even more bizarre, is how many of these “girly-males” eschew the insanely popular tattoo culture that defaces a woman’s natural beauty.

    Tattoos on a beautiful woman are like graffiti on the Mona Lisa, but Jews know that. That’s why they work so hard at making once beautiful women truly ugly creatures. What better way to destroy the human’s natural pairing process than by making people really ugly with horrid tattoos, raggedy clothes, spiked, neon colored hairdos and piercings?

    By embracing the Jews’ perversions, the white man has become his own worst enemy. The world is Jewed upside down.

    “Perhaps little has changed in that regard, outside the fact there are a lot more people today without children.”
    you’re talking about WHITE people here man, because all the mud people in the usa are reproducing themselves like mice and cockroaches as fast as they possibly can.. some of them bring more than one wife, all of whom get welfare… bigamy is apparently not against the rules anymore, for some people… young mud studs are knocking up white women all over the usa and europe, while the jew machine constantly belittles white men on tv in programs and commercials and promotes miscegenation as the new normal… it’s all part of the jews’ genocide strategy against the white race……
    “As my uncle used to say, “it’s useless as tits on a boar.” White women are just as infected with the dog disease as their male mate.’
    as my father used to say, about guys with no skills – “a man without tools is about as useless as tits on a goddam nun.”
    good observations on the trannies trying to replace the females men need…
    i heard one wife say disgustedly to my cousin once – “what do you want me to be, JUNE CLEAVER?”
    of course the answer is – yes…
    somewhere between now and when the corporate jew media first began their assault on the american housewife back in the sixties our females have been completely corrupted against being wives to men, mothers to children and keepers of a house…

    1. The problem is that men are too desperate and clingy with women. Women despise these men even if these women say they want that behavior. Women and men are fundamentally different and should behave as their role is attributed by birth. Everything else is against nature, ratio!

  15. While Trump was flying to Iraq in air force one, all the while the planes movements where being tracked and it’s position openly discussed on the web, the Zionist entity chose that time to launch a missile attack on an Iranian airliner carrying resistance leadership figures.
    Oped, running a story that Trump fled to Iraq to avoid a coup.
    Was the Zionist action an attempt to provoke an attack on air force one, or just a shot across the bows.
    Trumps removing of the sitting duck 2000+ personal from syria may just be him not wanting their blood on his hands (reelection), the decision made ad hoc while on the phone to someone promising to do the fighting for him, some Zionists are unhappy with a president who acts WITHOUT consulting them first, some are enraged that the sitting duck sacrifice has disappeared, as it would have made a great public option game changer in the US where the 2000 slaughtered (think Custer’s last stand).
    The Zionist entity is chomping at the bit , it sees the Resistance closing in on it, nuttyyahoo needs a distraction/boost pre elections, they want to lash out but fear what may return.
    Nuke Damascus, reasons not to.
    They want Damascus, and not the nuclear dessert version,
    They want to live, the Resistance may not have “nukes” but they have enough WMD to ensure
    Tel Aviv becomes inhabited only by cockroaches of the non bipod kind.

  16. Well it’s beginning to look like the issue of orange clown’s withdrawal from Syria is another PR stunt, IMO, just like the last time. Instead of a “rapid” withdrawal from Syria because ISIS was “destroyed,” as per the initial rhetoric, now the troops are going to be pulled out “slowly” because ISIS is only “mostly done.” (And of course lots of unfortunate things can happen during the extended withdrawal time frame).

    So orange clown makes another dramatic announcement, publicly giving himself credit for trying to follow through on his campaign promises, then he gets talked out of it, as usual; and the resignation of Mattis adds a nice touch. (Perhaps the whole thing was a diversion; sort of a “fig leaf” to cover the long sought removal of Mattis so he can be replaced with an even more unreasonable person).

    If the elders of zion want the troops to stay in Syria indefinitely, then the troops will stay in Syria. And if the elders of zion don’t have a problem with withdrawing the troops from Syria either “rapidly” or “slowly,” then they may be withdrawn, rapidly or slowly.

  17. Let’s not forget who’s calling the shots.

    The “global protection racket” is being run by Jew supremacists.

    The pathetic shabbos goy (Trump) eagerly pays for that protection.

    2. Peter, hiding near the civilian aircraft is only one tactic in a series of deceptions they’ll employ. The #1 advantage being able to achieve surprise (aka) ambush as a rule.

      I reported this when it happened at Christmas and asked why the F-16 or F-15 couldn’t strike Damascus apart from stand-off (out of range) firing of various missiles, yet the F-35 can and will fly in and hit selected targets at any range required.
      This is Damascus, with S-300 defending Assad..
      That’s unacceptable.

      So being Jews holding a royal flush, they’ll naturally show off, rub it in, insult “the other” for show and to bolster demonic camaraderie. Anytime they wish, basically.

      In a grim world, the facts are usually grim and getting grimmer.

    So we’re down to quoting Pat Buchanan as some sort of ‘source’? Jesus Christ; Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    Nixon ‘ended’ the war as a political stunt to get re-elected. About 2 months before voting, the headlines read ‘PEACE IS NEAR!’

    Stupid-Amerika was too stupid to realize they were being had (again), and were too afraid if someone else stepped in that mess wouldn’t end.

    This should be a fucking billboard people see every day;
