It only took a few days for the Trumpster to walk back his latest bit of flatulence masquerading as a principled promise.
After talking with arch neocon simpatico Senator Lindsey Graham, Trump said the removal of troops from Syria will be a slow train—or more likely a train stalled on the tracks.
There are some things the Deep State with its penchant for endless war profiteering and creative destruction—basically order out of chaos and mass murder—will not tolerate. Demonitizing war and organized mass murder top the list of no-nos.
First and foremost, the president does not call the shots on foreign policy—despite the “command-in-chief” descriptor—the hidden elite does.
The Donald can tweet until he is blue in the face, but little will come of it, especially now that a slew of new Trump haters are being sworn into Congress, thus further tilting the deck in favor of the elite. They will not rest until until Trump is bounced from office—either through impeachment on dubious grounds or by way of the 25th Amendment attached to a Constitution they hate—and Mike Pence the Christian Zionist is put into place like Gerald Ford after Nixon, doomed to serve a couple years at best.
After Trump is dethroned, the public can once again forget about illegal wars and crimes against humanity committed in their name (similar to the crimes committed in the name of the German people some eighty years ago).
Trump reminded the people of these transgressions, which were buried under a ton of detritus as the Donald declared he would “bomb the shit” out of the Islamic State, a psyop gone toxic. Of course, this resulted in bombing the shit out of innocent civilians, thousands of buried under re-bounced rubble, not that the American people bothered to notice, same as they didn’t care about US assistance in horrific Saudi war crimes in Yemen.
Point is: put zero credence in the words of Trump or, for that matter, any other statist politician, all whom are inveterate liars and immoral scoundrels.
It doesn’t matter who you vote for every couple years—the same master is served (the financial class and corporatists) and short of a contemporized French Revolution (sans guillotine), nothing is likely to change.
