Trump’s ‘Treason’: Challenging the Empire – Antiwar.com Original

Let that Helsinki in

The utter malevolence of our political class was dramatized in all its darkness by their reaction to the Helsinki summit: the “Treason summit” they dubbed it, with the Twitter hashtag going viral. That’s what they think of a meeting between the heads of two countries which have thousands of nuclear-tipped missiles aimed at each other.

The extinction of humankind – who cares? What really matters is appeasing Hillary Clinton’s sense of entitlement. Anything else is pure sedition.

I must be so out of touch, so distant from current cultural cues and memes, that I failed to pick up the ostensible reason for the outcry that greeted Trump’s performance in Helsinki. What specifically did he say that got them breathing so heavily? What the heck did he do?

As far as I can tell, Trump’s big sin was apparently engaging in the following exchange with some grandstanding “reporter”:

“Thank you. Mr. President, you tweeted this morning that it’s U.S. foolishness, stupidity, and the Mueller probe that is responsible for the decline in US relations with Russia. Do you hold Russia at all accountable or anything in particular? And if so, what would you what would you consider them that they are responsible for?

“TRUMP: Yes I do. I hold both countries responsible. I think that the United States has been foolish. I think we’ve all been foolish. We should have had this dialogue a long time ago, a long time frankly before I got to office. And I think we’re all to blame.”

The pundits are screeching about “moral equivalence” – how dare the President put Russia on the same moral plane as the pure-as-the-driven-snow United States of America!  Read the rest of this entry »

Trump Stands His Ground on Putin – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. Fox on July 20, 2018

By cheering Brexit, dissing the EU, suggesting NATO is obsolete, departing Syria, trying to get on with Putin, Trump is threatening the entire U.S. foreign policy establishment with what it fears most – irrelevance.

https://original.antiwar.com/buchanan/2018/07/19/trump-stands-his-ground-on-putin/

Thursday, Trump indicated that he knows exactly what is afoot, and threw down the gauntlet of defiance:

“The Fake News Media wants so badly to see a major confrontation with Russia, even a confrontation that could lead to war. They are pushing so recklessly hard and hate the fact that I’ll probably have a good relationship with Putin.”

Spot on. Trump is saying: I am going to call off this Cold War II before it breaks out into the hot war that nine U.S. presidents avoided, despite Soviet provocations far graver than Putin’s pilfering of DNC emails showing how Debbie Wasserman Schultz stuck it to Bernie Sanders…

The Globalist Elite Fears Peace, Wants War

Posted by M. C. Fox on July 16, 2018

FEDERICO PIERACCINI

The announced meeting between Trump and Putin has already produced a good result by revealing the hypocrisy of the media and politicians. The meeting has been branded as the greatest danger to humanity, according to the Western globalist elite, because of the danger that “peace could break out between Russia and the United States”.

Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. The following so stretches credulity that sources will have to be cited and an exact quotations given to be believed. Read the rest of this entry »

Get On the Trump Peace Train! – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. Fox on July 2, 2018

There’s never a dull moment with the Trump administration, which means: never a moment of rest for the War Party. Trump keeps throwing fast balls at the pundits and assembled “experts,” and they keep striking out, bigtime, as the ball whizzes past their heads and lands, with a thwack!, in the catcher’s mitt.

“Steee-rike one!”

First it was the meet up with Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The media and their attendant policy wonks weren’t ready for Singapore, where the President gave Kim a glimpse of what his country could achieve if it would only come in from the cold and allow the warm embrace of the international community.

EconomicPolicyJournal.com: Is Paul Krugman the New Intellectual Front for Donald Trump?

Posted by M. C. Fox on May 12, 2018

You have to talk out of both sides of your mouth when you are desperate to make sense.

Nothing spells CONTROL like KRUGMAN.

http://www.economicpolicyjournal.com/2018/05/is-paul-krugman-intellectual-front-for.html

Robert Wenzel

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has gone from bad to worse. During the current period where the stock market and cotton are high and the living is easy with unemployment low, straight Keynesian theory would call for a shrinkage in government spending. But not Paulie K.
He tells his readers at the Gray Lady:

The bottom line here is that the case for aggressive monetary and, when necessary, fiscal policies to sustain demand is much stronger than we used to think. Errors like the turn to austerity and the ECB’s 2011 rate hike were much bigger mistakes than the previous doctrine allowed for; premature Fed rate hikes would be a bigger sin than even the Fed seems to realize now…

On that view, the failure to supply enough demand after 2008 imposed an enormous cost, which we can never regain. And looking forward, the risks of being too loose versus too tight are hugely asymmetric: letting the economy slump again will again impose big costs that are never made up, while running it hot won’t store up any meaningful trouble for the future.

Got that? He is trying to nudge the Federal Reserve to go slow on interest rate hikes.
This is straight out Donald Trump theory. See: Fed Chairman Finalist Leaks His Oval Office Conversation With Trump.
Krugman should be embarrassed. He has become the intellectual front for wacky Trump economic thinking.

Making American Menial – Cafe Hayek

Posted by M. C. Fox on May 12, 2018

Economics isn’t as easy it may seem.

http://cafehayek.com/2018/05/making-american-menial.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+CafeHayek+%28Cafe+Hayek%29
Here’s a letter to Donald Trump:

Earlier today you said “We’re importing a lot of cars. We want a lot of those cars to be built in the U.S. Build them here, and also ship them overseas. Doing a reverse act.”

Soooo….. You want to arrange for us to spend more of our own time, labor, and resources producing valuable outputs to be shipped overseas, and for us to receive fewer valuable outputs in return. I’m stumped. Can you spell out just how this arrangement will “make America great again”?

America’s Word Is Worthless – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. Fox on May 10, 2018

Will Russia finally wake up and stop inviting more dangerous situations by her extraordinary indecisiveness? If Putin doesn’t put his foot down, he is going to get us all killed.

https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/05/08/americas-word-worthless/

Paul Craig Roberts

We can now dismiss all hope that Trump’s campaign promises to pull out of Syria, normalize relations with Russia and stop the offshoring of American jobs will ever become US policies. By dishonoring the US government’s word and pulling out of the Iran nuclear non-proliferation agreement, an agreement signed by the US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, China, and Iran, President Trump has revealed that his regime is totally in the hands of the Zionist warmongers.

Do Americans Want To Die For Israel? – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. Fox on May 10, 2018

The Saker says that “Americans should ask themselves—Do I want to die for Israel?” https://russia-insider.com/en/americans-should-ask-themselves-do-i-want-die-israel/ri23382

That is the question you should ask your child when they contemplate military “service”.

https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/05/07/americans-want-die-israel/

Paul Craig Roberts

Only a few days remain before Trump announces whether he is pulling the US out of the multi-nation agreement with Iran. Iran has kept the agreement. https://www.geopolitica.ru/en/article/message-iran

Even Washington’s vassals—UK, France, Germany—have announced that they are sticking with the agreement.
https://sputniknews.com/world/201805071064213277-france-germany-uk-iran-deal-us-decision/

So where is the pressure on Trump coming from to destroy the carefully negotiated agreement in which Iran agreed to forgo development of nuclear weapons?

It comes from Israel and Israel’s American Fifth Column—the neoconservatives. Read the rest of this entry »

Trump: Is He Stupid or Dangerously Crazy? – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. Fox on April 9, 2018

Days before this fake attack, the Russian Defense Ministry warned that a false flag provocation was in the making.

We mentioned this just a few days ago. Truth from Moscow, lies from Washington. All directed toward you.

Not like the old days when both were lying to US.

https://original.antiwar.com/justin/2018/04/08/trump-is-he-stupid-or-dangerously-crazy/

A child could see through the fake “chemical attack” supposedly launched by Bashar al-Assad just as his troops defeated the jihadists and Trump said he wanted out of Syria. But our President can’t, which raises the question: is he as stupid or stupider than George W. Bush? Or is he crazy?

We are expected to believe that the Assad regime committed a horrific atrocity against mostly women and children at the very moment when Syrian forces have decisively defeated the Islamist rebels and Trump declared he wanted US troops out of Syria. Days before this fake attack, the Russian Defense Ministry warned that a false flag provocation was in the making. Read the rest of this entry »

Trump agrees to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

Posted by M. C. Fox on March 9, 2018

First thought. Would Hillary have met Kim over over a table rather than the battlefield? What do you think?

https://nypost.com/2018/03/08/north-korean-leader-kim-jong-un-invites-trump-to-meet/

By Joe Tacopino

President Trump has agreed to sit-down with his North Korean nemesis Kim Jong-Un sometime in the next two months to discuss stripping the hermit nation of its nuclear arsenal, it was announced Thursday.

The historic meeting was brokered by the South Korean government, which delivered the invitation to the White House and divulged the details outside the West Wing…

Be seeing you
