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
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.
