January 19, 2017, Last Day!

Tomorrow is the big day, and I’ve taken time out to gather my thoughts going forward and to think about the issues with which Trump and our country will likely be faced early on. Here are four articles that helped me begin to understand what likely will be coming at us from almost the git-go. See you tomorrow! ~J

CIA’s role in financial markets EXPOSED by documents release, Zerohedge. . . This short article begins to give us an idea of the conclusion reached (see below), as it details some of the many violent intrigues of the CIA. Yes, as I said yesterday in my Commentary on China, the CIA and those involved with it must go, and this includes, for instance, our former President, George W. Bush, who was also head of the CIA when JFK was murdered and photographed in Daley Plaza on that infamous day. GWB, as VP, under Reagan, was also deeply involved in the destruction of the former Soviet Union (see leaked pdf HERE) — which later also became a large part of the reason for the 9/11 attack on us. He and others close to him are deeply involved with the Clintons/CIA/Clinton Foundation crime syndicate. Unfortunately, the corruption is on both sides of the aisle, and I believe that is why Congress as a whole is also causing so much serious trouble for our very-soon-to-be President Trump. They are all, everyone of them, afraid of being caught out! Taking down the CIA is going to be an extremely complex operation — if it happens at all, but let’s understand more of the reasons why . . .

So now that the CIA has released 13 Million files and will continue to release more every year on the Crest archive, it will provide investors, historians, authors, academics, bankers, and others the evidence they need to research and confirm what we already knew:  The CIA is an agency-employee that works for international banks first, and US Citizens second.

More Cooperation Between America and China Than There Seems, Zerohedge, , , This article makes me think about the idea that words are cheap and we must watch what they do, because therein lies the real truth. I do not think that the conclusions drawn here are necessarily accurate,. It is as if these writers are still willing to demonize China. Much of what I’m reading that Xi has said and actually done, though, aligns with my own thinking and gives me a bit more of a foundation as I follow this situation into the future. What China does at home may be of interest, but it is not our business. Our business is our mutual relations with them. Let the Chinese people deal with their own leaders, just as we here in the United States must learn to do. If each nation is left alone to arrive at its own means of governance, and our leaders focus only on negotiating our differences when they interfere with our own system and values, I think we will find the world rapidly becomes a more peaceful place. This is called sovereignty, and I think it is why Putin has been so successful in his efforts with people who may think very differently from him. Soon enough, people in various countries will seek their own sovereignty, and they may more easily reach success as their leaders see it is possible to live in the world without the need to control others through fear.

Does the rogue deep state have Trump’s back? Armed forces a key role? by Charles Hugh Smith

Rather than being the bad guys, as per the usual Liberal world-view, the Armed Forces may well play a key role in reducing the utterly toxic influence of neocon-neoliberals within the Deep State. .  . 

[…] For the past few years, I have been suggesting there is a profound split in the Deep State that is not just about power or ideology, but about the nature and future of National Security: in other words, what policies and priorities are actually weakening or threatening the long-term security of the United States?

I have proposed that there are progressive elements within the sprawling Deep State that view the dominant neocon-neoliberal agenda of the past 24 years as a disaster for the long-term security of the U.S. and its global interests (a.k.a. the Imperial Project). There are also elements within the Deep State that view Wall Street’s dominance as a threat to America’s security and global interests. (This is not to say that American-based banks and corporations aren’t essential parts of the Imperial Project; it’s more about the question of who is controlling whom.) . . . continue reading

Degrading relations with Russia is Obama administration’s #1 foreign policy blunder – Medvedev

The breakdown of relations with Russia is a key foreign policy blunder committed by the Obama administration and it will go down in history as such, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has said.

In fact “US-Russia relations completely fell apart by the end of the second term of the Obama administration,” Medvedev said in a Facebook post.

    An Irish Reflection on the 2016 Election in the Colonies
    Ian O’Doherty is a columnist who works for the Irish Independent. His “iSpy” column is published Monday-Thursday. On Fridays O’Doherty publishes a rather more serious column containing his opinion on a chosen subject in “The World According to Ian O’Doherty.” He was formerly with the Evening Herald.

    Tuesday November 8, 2016 — a day that will live in infamy, or the moment when America was made great again?

    The truth, as ever, will lie somewhere in the middle. After all, contrary to what both his supporters and detractors believe — and this is probably the only thing they agree on — Trump won’t be able to come into office and spend his first 100 days gleefully ripping up all the bits of the Constitution he doesn’t like.

    But even if this week’s seismic shockwave doesn’t signal either the sky falling in or the start of a bright new American era, the result was, to use one of The Donald’s favourite phrases, huge. It is, in fact, a total game changer.

    In decades to come, historians will still bicker about the most poisonous, toxic and stupid election in living memory.

    They will also be bickering over the same vexed question: how did a man who was already unpopular with the public and who boasted precisely zero political experience beat a seasoned Washington insider who was married to one extremely popular president and who had worked closely with another?

    The answer, ultimately, is in the question.

    History will record this as a Trump victory, which of course it is. But it was also more than that, because this was the most stunning self-inflicted defeat in the history of Western democracy.

    Hillary Clinton has damned her party to irrelevance for at least the next four years. She has also ensured that Obama’s legacy will now be a footnote rather than a chapter. Because the Affordable Care Act is now doomed under a Trump presidency and that was always meant to be his gift, of sorts, to America .

    How did a candidate who had virtually all of the media, all of Hollywood , every celebrity you could think of, a couple of former presidents and apparently, the hopes of an entire gender resting on her shoulders, blow up her own campaign?

    I rather suspect that neither Donald nor Hillary know how they got to this point.

    Where she seemed to expect the position to become available to her by right — the phrase “she deserves it” was used early in the campaign and then quickly dropped when her team remembered that Americans don’t like inherited power — his first steps into the campaign were those of someone chancing their arm. If he wasn’t such a staunch teetotaller, many observers would have accused him of only doing it as a drunken bet.

    But the more the campaign wore on, something truly astonishing began to happen: the people began to speak. And they began to speak in a voice which, for the first time in years in the American heartland, would not be ignored.

    Few of the people who voted for Trump seriously believe that he is going to personally improve their fortunes. Contrary to the smug, middle-class media narrative, they aren’t all barely educated idiots.

    They know what he is, of course they do. It’s what he is not that appeals to them.

    Clinton, on the other hand, had come to represent the apex of smug privilege. Whether it was boasting about her desire to shut down the remaining coal industry in Virginia — that worked out well for her, in the end — or calling half the electorate a “basket of deplorables,” she seemed to operate in the perfumed air of the elite, more obsessed with coddling idiots and pandering to identity and feelings than improving the hardscrabble life that is the lot of millions of Americans.

    Also, nobody who voted for Trump did so because they wanted him as a spiritual guru or life coach.

    But plenty of people invested an irrational amount of emotional energy into a woman who was patently undeserving of that level of adoration.

    That’s why we’ve witnessed such fury from her supporters — they had wrapped themselves so tightly in the Hillary flag that a rejection of her felt like a rejection of them. And when you consider that many American colleges gave their students Wednesday off class because they were too “upset” to study, you can see that this wasn’t a battle for the White House — this became a genuine battle for America ‘s future direction. And, indeed, for the West. (Emphasis mine)

    We have been going through a cultural paroxysm for the last 10 years — the rise of identity politics has created a Balkanised society where the content of someone’s mind is less important than their skin colour, gender, sexuality or whatever other attention-seeking label they wish to bestow upon themselves.

    In fact, where once it looked like racism and sexism might be becoming archaic remnants of a darker time, a whole new generation has popped up which wants to re-litigate all those arguments all over again.

    In fact, while many of us are too young to recall the Vietnam War and the social upheaval of the 1960s, plenty of observers who were say they haven’t seen an America more at war with itself than it is today.

    One perfect example of this New America has been the renewed calls for segregation on campuses. Even a few years ago, such a move would have been greeted with understandable horror by civil rights activists — but this time it’s the black students demanding segregation and “safe spaces” from whites. If young people calling for racial segregation from each other isn’t the sign of a very, very sick society, nothing is.

    The irony of Clinton calling Trump and his followers racist while she was courting Black Lives Matter was telling.

    After all, no rational white person would defend the KKK, yet here was a white women defending both BLM and the New Black Panthers — explicitly racist organisations with the NBP, in particularly, openly espousing a race war if they don’t get what they want.

    Fundamentally, Trump was attractive because he represents a repudiation of the nonsense that has been slowly strangling the West.

    He represents — rightly or wrongly, and the dust has still to settle — a scorn and contempt for these new rules. He won’t be a president worried about microaggressions, or listening to the views of patently insane people just because they come from a fashionably protected group.

    He also represents a glorious two fingers [BTW: Like Winston Churchill’s V sign, the same as our one middle finger.] to everyone who has become sick of being called a racist or a bigot or a homophobe — particularly by Hillary supporters who are too dense to realise that she has always actually been more conservative on social issues than Trump.

    That it might take a madman to restore some sanity to America is, I suppose, a quirk that is typical to that great nation — land of the free and home to more contradictions than anyone can imagine.

    Trump’s victory also signals just how out of step the media has been with the people. Not just American media, either.

    In fact, the Irish media has continued its desperate drive to make a show of itself with a seemingly endless parade of emotionally incontinent gibberish that, ironically, has increased in ferocity and hysterical spite in the last few days.

    The fact that Hillary’s main cheerleaders in the Irish and UK media still haven’t realised where they went wrong is instructive and amusing in equal measure. They still don’t seem to understand that by constantly insulting his supporters, they’re just making asses of themselves.

    One female contributor to this newspaper said Trump’s victory was a “sad day for women.” Well, not for the women who voted for him, it wasn’t.

    But that really is the nub of the matter — the “wrong” kind of women obviously voted for Trump. The “right” kind went with Hillary. And lost.

    The Irish media is not alone in being filled largely with dinner-party liberals who have never had an original or socially awkward thought in their lives. They simply assume that everyone lives in the same bubble and thinks the same thoughts — and if they don’t, they should.

    Of the many things that have changed with Trump’s victory, the bubble has burst. Never in American history have the polls, the media and the chin-stroking moral arbiters of the liberal agenda been so spectacularly, wonderfully wrong.

    It was exactly that condescending, obnoxious sneer towards the working class that brought them out in such numbers, and that is the great irony of Election 16 — the Left spent years creating identity politics to the extent that the only group left without protection or a celebrity sponsor was the white American male.

    That it was the white American male who swung it for Trump is a timely reminder that while black lives matter, all votes count — even the ones of people you despise.

    You don’t have to be a supporter of Trump to take great delight in the sheer, apoplectic rage that has greeted his victory.

    If Clinton had won and Trump supporters had gone on a rampage through a dozen American cities the next night, there would have been outrage — and rightly so.

    But in a morally and linguistically inverted society, the wrong-doers are portrayed as the victims. We saw that at numerous Trump rallies: protesters would disrupt the event, claiming their right to free speech (a heckler’s veto is not free speech) and provoking people until they got a dig before running to the media and claiming victimhood.

    But, ultimately, this election was about people saying enough with the bullshit. This is a country in crisis, and most Americans don’t care about transgender bathrooms, or safe spaces, or government speech laws. This was about people taking some control back for themselves.

    It was about them saying that they won’t be hectored and bullied by the toddler tantrums thrown by pissy and spoiled millennials, and they certainly won’t put up with being told they’re stupid and wicked just because they have a difference of opinion.

    But, really, this election is about hope for a better America ; an America which isn’t obsessed with identity and perceived “privilege;” an America where being a victim isn’t a virtue and where you don’t have to apologise for not being up to date with the latest list of socially acceptable phrases.

    Trump’s victory was a two fingers [see comment above] to the politically correct.

    It was a brutal rejection of the nonsense narrative which says Muslims who kill Americans are somehow victims. It took the ludicrous Green agenda and threw it out. It was a return, on some level, to a time when people weren’t afraid to speak their own mind without some self-elected language cop shouting at you. Who knows, we may even see Trump kicking the UN out of New York .

    Frankly, if you’re one of those who gets their politics from Jon Stewart and Twitter, look away for the next four years, because you’re not going to like what you see. The rest of us, however, will be delighted.

    This might go terribly, terribly wrong. Nobody knows — and if we have learned anything this week, it’s that nobody knows nuthin’.

    But just as the people of the UK took control back with Brexit, the people of America did likewise with their choice for president.
