A Brief Comment from ~Jean:
Every post I’m publishing indicates that Trump is facing an almost impossible situation, some of which is of his own making. It looks to me like this is the way it is supposed to be as we enter this time of total collapse. The difficulties he is facing appear to be almost insurmountable — the MSM and Democrats are both against him and twisting and spinning his every effort as all the infighting and lies are exposed — as are the Republicans in Congress, since they are also deeply involved in the corruption and do not want any related personal facts about their activities to come to light. Then, too, many of Trump’s own policies don’t appear to be reality based.
As I write this, I’m listening to a conversation on television between Charlie Rose and Mike Morrell, which is nothing but subtle propaganda that will frighten many Americans. How can working people, broke, sick, and filled with fear about their future ever begin to sort out these complexities? I do not believe it is possible. This may be just another reason why the whole corrupt edifice must come down.
Back in ’07, when I began to become aware of all the changes headed our way, I knew then that the entire corrupt system was going to come down. Not just the financial system, but our whole twisted, dysfunctional way of life.
It seems this path of total collapse is the one we must go down in order to get to a higher plane, one where we can make a fresh start as we finally realize the importance of coming together and taking responsibility for ourselves and our governance.
It looks to me like we are getting closer and closer to this place, but there is more corruption to be exposed and we likely will have to take more attempted hits as efforts to control us become more pronounced.
What gives me hope is that there are people who have worked out a way to go forward, which I believe will be made available when we reach this point — but the time is not now. We are not ready for such action.
‘We the People’ are still too divided among ourselves in our anger and confusion, all the result of the crazy-making and calculated chaos being inflicted upon us.
Our citizens must begin to realize that they have been used and that we have been divided on purpose in order to control us. When people begin to reach this point — and we still have quite a way to go before we get there, then I have a somewhat educated belief that there are people out there who will stop up bring this craziness to a halt.
I realize many of you likely will not agree with me, but this is the way I am calling it.

Pope Puts Nazis In Control Of Knights Of Malta As Trump Prepares To Destroy Federal Reserve. . . published yesterday . . .
. . . and this morning, we have a new post . . . Got your head spinning yet? Mine sure is!
While protests continue over President Donald Trump’s “extreme vetting” of foreigners from seven Muslim-dominated countries, radio host Rush Limbaugh says the commander in chief faces a much more serious problem.
“The real choke point here and the real weak point – and I’ve mentioned it a number of times all during the campaign – the real problem Trump has here is not these protesters,” Limbaugh said Monday on his national broadcast.
“The real problem he’s gonna have is the Republicans in Congress sticking with him. This is the kind of thing that they’ve caved to I don’t know how many times.”
“This is the kind of uprising in the media, uprising on the left that just sends chills down the spines of the average, ordinary Washington Republican, and they cave within seconds to things like this, as [Sen. John] McCain and Lindsey Graham predictably and right on schedule have done, by coming out and saying they profoundly disagree. This has always been, as far as I’m concerned, the wild card for anything Trump does, and that is the Republican and the Republican leadership in Congress.”
Rex Tillerson is not in the mould of Secretaries of State of bygone years – the likes of Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, who have been compromised by their associations with the System Behind the System, which does what it wants regardless of who is in the White House and has the resources to do so. Tillerson is himself an integral part part of the System Behind the System. Appointing him gives a blank cheque for that system to do openly what it has done under cover of legality until now.
Trump’s Nationalism Facilitating China’s Rise to Global Leadership, by Salman Rafi Sheikh, NEO
While the new US president, Donald Trump, might have thought deeply about making “America great again”, the policies (read: “America First”) he has outlined to achieve this objective are likely to cause other consequences, most important of which is America’s further decline in the global arena and subsequent rise of China to what the latter’s leadership has implicitly called ‘playing the world leader.’ To this end, China is expected to receive significant support from both its rivals and allies. In Asia, for example, Trump’s nationalist rhetoric has received a response that points to a larger regional (read: “regionalization”) configuration taking place wherein China, followed by Russia, is playing an anchor role. As a matter of fact, China’s militaristic response i.e., deployment of intercontinental missile systems, to Trump’s aggressive nationalist assertion and the heat it is creating with regard to the South China Sea has found a powerful friend in Russia, and together both of these countries are likely to challenge Trump-ism in its various i.e., military and non-military form
China is Building a Navy to Displace, Not Defeat the US in Asia, by Jospeh Thomas, NWO . . . I have published this article twice before, and for me these are its operative words, and they make me question Trump’s/Tillerson’s approach to China:
[…[China’s naval ambitions in particular have been disparaged by Western political and military analysts who believe (correctly) China’s growing naval capabilities will never be on par with the United States’ global-spanning naval forces.
But that is precisely the point.
China’s naval capabilities are not meant to take and hold global hegemony by defeating the United States as a nation, but rather in displacing the United States as a regional hegemon in Asia where the US presence and its decades of influence have chaffed at, and at times trampled, Westphalian sovereignty.
Western analysts have pointed out that China’s blue ocean naval capabilities fall far behind America’s, and that it will be many years if and when China is able to compete on equal terms. For instance, analysts point out China’s single operational aircraft carrier, Liaoning, faces America’s 10 aircraft carriers.
However, if China’s ambitions are not to overwhelm or compete with America’s global fleet, and merely deter and ultimately displace America’s presence in Asia Pacific, its current fleet is already adequate. Analysts point out that when China’s naval assets are operated near Chinese shores, land-based weapon systems including land-based aircraft significantly tip the balance of military power in Beijing’s favour.
China’s decision to establish what are essentially unsinkable aircraft carriers in the South China Sea amid its island-building frenzy have angered waning Western hegemons specifically for this same reason. From these islands, should China choose or be forced to, military power can be exerted against Western naval assets in ways even the West’s formidable military would struggle to counter.
And while analysts, politicians and demagogues alike attempt to accuse China of building up its forces in what will result in full-scale war between Beijing and the West, the reality is that war will only unfold if the West fails to gracefully concede the end of its “age of empires,” and its unwarranted influence it has maintained quite literally an ocean away from its shores, in Asia Pacific.
Beyond America’s waning military presence in the region, many of what Washington has called its “allies” have recently shown signs of shifting economically and even militarily toward Beijing. This is the result of not China’s growing military might, but its expanding economic influence, as well as its differing style of diplomacy relative to Washington’s.
Where the US has pursued a foreign policy in Asia Pacific based on “nation building” either through direct military intervention and occupation, various methods of coercion or through the use of its immense number of nongovernmental organisations used to build parallel institutions within allied nations to then displace existing governments and replace them with more pliant regimes, Beijing has focused more on cutting economic and immense infrastructure deals, regardless of who is in power.
China does not operate media organisations propagating political agitation within neighbouring states as the US does throughout Asia Pacific, nor does it play a role in supporting or opposing political parties in neighbouring states as the US does. In other words, no matter how beneficial a relationship with the US may seem to Asian Pacific states, the spectre of subversion always looms overhead, where with dealings with Beijing, it does not.
It is ironic then, that despite America’s military might, it is its own, fundamentally backwards methods of diplomacy, a throwback to European colonialism, that has undone its power and influence in Asia Pacific. But then again, had the US not pursued a foreign policy based on extraterritorial expansion throughout Asia Pacific, it wouldn’t need power and influence in Asia Pacific beyond the boundaries of Westphalian sovereignty to begin with.
China’s naval forces then, are not intended to sail across the Pacific and project Beijing’s influence upon the people of North and South America. It is intended to deter and eventually displace American forces in Asia. In many ways, China’s strategy is already working and in time, it will inevitably succeed.
America’s presence in Asia Pacific, like all imperial powers before it attempting to project influence thousands of kilometres from their own shores, finds itself in an untenable, unsustainable position. Even without a push, this precarious balancing act must eventually come to an end. China’s burgeoning naval fleet, however, will provide a sufficient push to ensure it does sooner than later, and on Beijing’s terms.
U.S. World Population Control Programme Revealed – War and Famine . . .and Kissinger is involved. He is also in the background working with Trump.
In researching for another report TruePublica unearthed a database dating back to the mid 1990’s and although quite widely publicised some years ago, provides astonishing insight into how dangerous American foreign policy has developed over the decades.
This particular article appeared as part of a feature in the December 8, 1995 issue of Executive Intelligence Review, and was circuclated extensively by the Schiller Insitute Food for Peace Movement entitled: “Who Is Responsible for the World Food Shortage?”
The article quotes from a classified report and summizes that a plan, formulated by Henry Kissinger was adopted by the US administration in the 1970’s under President Gerald Ford to use population control methods in regions around the world where threats to their own economic or political power was likely emerging. . . .
