The Trump-Putin Conference
Donald Trump won back some supporters with his bold diplomatic moves with Russia yesterday. Seeking peace is never a popular move with those who run our civilization, as could be seen by the hysterical opposition he garnered, with even more irrational hatred than usual, from every pillar of the establishment.
The code words were everywhere on social media; Trump was consistently called a “traitor,” and “Putin’s bitch.” Alleged “journalists” dropped their facade further than they ever had; former CIA intern Anderson Cooper declared, “You’ve just seen the most disgraceful performance by a U.S. president.” #TreasonSummit was all the rage on twitter.
My colleagues in the JFK assassination research community were mostly apoplectic over the summit. Laughably, they insisted it was “treason” for Trump to seemingly side with Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence agencies. Yes, these are the same researchers who are quite aware of just how extensively these same intelligence agencies have covered up the truth about the assassination for decades. They are relegated to cheering on the likes of war lover extraordinaire John McCainiac and former President George W. Bush, who both of course opposed the summit.
McCainiac, still clinging to life and still possessing the strength to issue more pro-war soundbites, used another popular keyword, “disgraceful,” calling it “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.” Former CIA director John Brennan claimed it was “nothing short of treasonous.” Neocon veteran Newt Gingrich said it was “the most serious mistake of his presidency.”
Deluded Republican Never Trump Jeff Flake declared, “I never thought I would see the day when our American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression.” Exactly what “aggression” he was talking about wasn’t specified. Flake, like all neocons, supports America’s quite real, continuous aggression all over the globe. Ayn Rand disciple Paul Ryan lectured Trump that “the president must appreciate that Russia is not our ally.” Another Republican, Senator Bob Corker, ominously stated that this was not “a good moment for our country.” Mitt Romney joined the chorus of those calling the summit “disgraceful.”
Exactly what are all these critics- from all across the phony “left” and “right” spectrum, so upset about? Was Trump scheming to turn over the reigns of government to Putin? Was he advocating Russian as the new American language? Was he promising massive amounts of foreign aid to Russia?
I watched the Trump-Putin press conference. Aside from Trump’s predictable lapses into mindless, juvenile boasting and off-the-cuff embarrassing articulation, both of them sounded reasonable and refreshingly sane. If this had been Obama or Clinton on the stage, with any of China’s totalitarian rulers, the same kept press and deluded celebrities would have been just as over-the-top in their effusive praise.
What critics are seemingly saying here is that Russia is our “enemy,” as the likes of certifiably insane Keith Olbermann screamed on air last year. Another celebrity who is fortunate to be outside a padded room, comedian Chelsea Handler, described with her typical classiness, how Trump was “blowing his boyfriend.” This was a sub- theme in all the criticism; Trump had been taken to the cleaners by Putin, and was a “traitor” for simply talking to him. The inevitable comparisons to Hitler were there; while Trump has been compared to Hitler himself, this time it was Putin as the ultimate bogeyman, and Trump in the role of hapless “appeaser” Neville Chamberlain.
Young actor Chris Evans, who plays Captain America among other things, figuratively screamed on twitter, “This moron, puppet, coward sided with Putin over our own intelligence agencies!” Yes, Chris, the same perpetually corrupt agencies that now have script approval over anything that comes out of Hollywood. Evans, like many, also questioned, “Where are you GOP?” He was seemingly unaware that every high profile member of the GOP blasted Trump, as they have whenever he’s taken a step towards sanity or reform.
Piper Perabo, an actress best known for playing a CIA agent, breathlessly tweeted, “The President works for the American people, right?” Judd Apatow demanded that Fox News- which contrary to his contention was just as transparently appalled by the summit as CNN or MSNBC- not “collude with Trump.” Apparently, Apatow didn’t hear Fox’s Neil Cavuto call the summit “disgusting.”
“Collusion” is the main code word in all this. It has set off the establishment “left” much as words like “commie,” “pinko” and “fellow traveler” once set off the “right” back in the 1950s. The only ostensible reason that Vladimir Putin is so despised is because the mainstream media has relentlessly pushed the theme that Russia “colluded” to steal the election away from the humble and lovable Hillary Clinton. Who was frothing at the mouth for war with Russia, of course.
Former FBI Director James Comey, another unlikely hero of today’s “left,” tweeted out, “This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country.” Comey, like every other triggered, hysterical public figure, refused to elaborate on just how Putin is “lying” or a “murderous thug.” I’m sure he’s cool with our drones killing American citizens who weren’t even charged with a crime, and our nonstop invasion and bombing of small countries all over the world, which have resulted in untold numbers of dead civilians. Some might even call that a “murderous” policy.
My laughable United States Senator, former car dealer Don Beyer, called Trump’s performance “the most astonishing display of weakness and submission that I have ever seen from an American President.” This theme of Trump’s “weakness” suggests to the layman that his critics want him to confront Putin personally. Would they applaud Trump if he’d punched Putin in the nose? Clearly, they are in favor of going to war with this latest “murderous thug” who undoubtedly “hates our freedom.” Democrat swamp veterans Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi both stressed yet another absurd theme; that Trump’s “cowardly” bowing to Putin suggest the Russian president has some incriminating information on him.
Another code word which has been associated with the thoroughly demonized Senator Joseph McCarthy for my entire lifetime- “un-American,” has also been thrown around repeatedly by today’s “left.” There is not the slightest sense of irony in their pronouncements that Trump is “un-American” for seeking detente with Russia. Picture Frank Church and other liberals of the 1970s calling Jimmy Carter “un-American” for sitting down with Leonid Brezhnev.
Trump himself unleashed a typical tweet: “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!” With his patented eloquence, Trump was making the point I’ve been trying to make; this has been a witch hunt, and it has been rigged. The totally corrupt swamp has succeeded in converting the very real, documented fraud perpetrated by the DNC, to rob Bernie Sanders of the party nomination, into a Hollywoodian fantasy where “Russians” robbed the true beneficiary of that fraud, Hillary Clinton, of the presidency.
At least a few prominent people reacted favorably to Trump’s effort at diplomacy rather than confrontation. Both Ron Paul and his son, Senator Rand Paul, supported the president. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer nearly jumped through the screen in a desperate attempt to get Senator Paul to denounce Trump like all the other Republicans. And my friend, former Rep. Cynthia McKinney, wrote on Facebook, “I hope Trump is undeterred by the nattering naybobs of negativism. I’m shocked at all of these Black warmongers being trotted out on TV to spout the talking points they’ve been given. Notice, all criticism are exactly the same, Dem & Repub.” I particularly loved the use of Pat Buchanan’s old “naybobs” quote. Like Buchanan, Cynthia McKinney doesn’t play into the phony “left” and “right” paradigm.
Trump’s statement, “I would rather take a political risk in pursuit of peace, than to risk peace in pursuit of politics” rekindled memories of some of his anti- establishment 2016 campaign rhetoric. Knowing Trump, he’ll follow this with another bombing of Syria. After all, this peace summit followed one of his dumbest moves to date; the nomination of the man who covered up Vince Foster’s death, Brett Kavanaugh, to the Supreme Court.
But it’s been a good week for Trump. Before the summit, he enraged “leftists” again by refusing to bow to the Queen of England, and in his patented style walking in front of her in what we are told is beyond the pale behavior. The same “left” that wants war with Russia, and calls those who don’t “un-American” and “traitors,” believes that the ultimate One Percenter, a relic of the dark ages, deserves tremendous respect because she has been declared “royalty.”
We fought a war of independence to shatter this notion that one’s bloodlines grant one a special authority, and untold, unearned wealth and perks. But in today’s cockeyed, crumbling America, the royals are worshiped by those who despise a leader who has banned GMOs and threatened any Rothschilds who enter his country with arrest. Putin is a “murderous thug” but “Uncle Joe” Stalin, who presided over perhaps the most diabolical regime in modern history, was our ally.
Monty Python once joked, “In 1945, peace broke out.” Clearly, a large number of Americans don’t want peace to break out. Ever. They are addicted to the same tired propaganda that has been regurgitated by generations of establishment “journalists” since the Spanish-American War of 1898. They killed JFK because he advocated peace. As Benjamin Franklin said, “There is no such thing as a good war, or a bad peace.”
Our Plastic Patriotism
Today Americans will celebrate Independence Day. There will be fireworks, and cookouts, and hot dog eating contests. The Sci-Fi Channel will probably run their usual Twilight Zone marathon. The alleged “History” Channel will almost certainly waste air space with absurd shows like American Pickers.
There will be little mention anywhere about the War for Independence, our revolt against England. There’s a good reason for this; no politician, and no mainstream “journalist” wants to focus any attention on how this country was born. That’s the last thing a corrupt ruling elite wants to do; remind those they rule over that their ancestors violently overthrew a much less powerful tyranny.
In my upcoming book, Crimes and Cover-Ups in American Politics: 1776-1963, I’ll examine some “hidden history” of our Founders and their revolution. Things like the shameful treatment of Thomas Paine, the forgotten Shays and Whiskey Rebellions, the human skeletons found in Benjamin Franklin’s home, and the ongoing disinformation campaign to transform the most enlightened man of his age, Thomas Jefferson, into a despicable “racist.”
I have remarked before on the curious phenomenon of Hollywood ignoring the Founding Fathers. Even during the Golden Age of Hollywood, not a single picture was made about George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin, John or Samuel Adams, or John Hancock. In fact, the film colony tended to mention the American Revolution itself only sparingly. Again, there was an obvious reason for that; those in charge don’t want to mention anything about the forcible removal of a previous, much less rotten bunch of rulers.
Instead, over the course of time, American “patriotism” has been converted into a ghoulish worship of state power, exemplified by the finger-pointing “Uncle Sam” figure. Modern Americans adore the flag, but not the Constitutional system of checks and balances. And certainly not the Bill of Rights. No one seems to like them.
This all happened gradually. The senseless War Between the States, known popularly as the Civil War by the northern victors, consolidated power in the central government, and permitted the first imperial presidency. Lincoln’s persistent unconstitutional actions, and the failure to recognize them as such, paved the way for the countless future transgressions against the Constitution, and the civil liberties of the people.
By the time World War I rolled around, “Uncle Sam” posters propped up everywhere. The growing power of the establishment press, combined with the blossoming film world, created lovable dough boys and whipped up hatred against the dirty “Krauts,” the dreaded “Hun.” Opponents of the pointless conflict were thrown into prison, including the noted socialist Eugene Debs. This was not merely a renewal of John Adams’ Alien and Sedition Acts, but overt approval of the precedent Lincoln set with his diabolical roundup and illegal imprisonment of his political opponents.
The word “patriot” originally meant a revolutionary, a colonist who supported the fight for independence from Great Britain. By now, it has become solidified in the public mind as someone who flies and salutes the flag proudly, supports our brave military and thanks the troops regularly for their “service.”
The original radical revolutionaries, the Sons of Liberty, would be aghast at mindless, modern American patriotism. The colonists wanted free and independent states, with a central government that had very limited power. No Founding Father outside of Alexander Hamilton- the central banking devotee who is so beloved now by our culture- would support our overreaching federal government, fueled by politically correct authoritarianism.
It’s an indictment of American gullibility that a play glorifying the only Founding Father who loved debt and the banking racket, Alexander Hamilton, has become a popular Broadway smash. Not only that, but he’s not a dead white male, like all the other Founders. He’s black and hip, and a talented rapper. It’s a certainty that virtually none of the almost exclusively white audiences for the play know the least bit about the real history of Hamilton, let alone the real history of our founding. I would venture that a good portion of them believe Hamilton really was black.
It was probably predictable that July 4th celebrations would revolve around fireworks, and flag worship, instead of liberty and unalienable rights. No one remembers the Declaration of Independence any more, and that’s a good thing for our leaders. Just reading about a formal protest against finely detailed acts of tyranny, might give even our comatose sheeple reason to pause. Instead, there are always choruses of “USA! USA!” to guide them in the proper direction.
The reality is, if Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and their brethren were alive today, they would not be Democrats or Republicans. They would be political “extremists” shunned by the mainstream establishment. They might even be smeared as “conspiracy theorists.” Few nations have ever had such a historical dichotomy; those who fought for our independence, and who were revered as heroes for most of this country’s history, are anathema to our present-day leaders. They are collectively Those Who Cannot be Mentioned.
Well, they can be mentioned negatively, of course. All except for the hip, black bankers’ favorite Hamilton are routinely denigrated as “racists.” They probably were all chauvinists as well, although there is little historical evidence of any feminists running amuck in the British colonies. Certainly no transgenders were around.
As I’ve noted before, most Americans are historically illiterate. And we are very, very close to having history itself declared “racist.” After all, virtually everything else is. Recently, some typical social justice warriors proclaimed that civility is a construct of “white supremacy.” We have already been advised that proper grammar is “racist.” But Americans, asleep and distracted as they are nowadays, seem perfectly content to accept that politeness and civility are in fact “racist.”
The Founding Fathers weren’t perfect. But they created a system of government that is as close to perfection as anything yet devised by human beings. The fact that corrupt forces have controlled this system for far too long doesn’t detract from the nature of the system itself. The Bill of Rights should be treasured by every American. Instead, I firmly believe that a national referendum on it would go down to defeat, especially if enough vacuous celebrities spoke out against it. Almost no one supports Patrick Henry’s timeless notion that “I may not agree with what you say, but I’ll defend to my dying day your right to say it.”
I’m sorry to rain on everyone’s Fourth of July parade. I just can’t be patriotic, when that term has been co-opted into being an unthinking supporter of the state. A state which is thoroughly and hopelessly corrupt. A real American patriot supports the ideals of human liberty and unalienable rights.
