Both Matt Drudge and Alex Jones are responsible for motivating the disenfranchised to vote for Donald Trump. Now that Trump’s the imperial president—a narcissistic version of George W. Bush—it’s up to MAGA media to support the agenda, even if that agenda is markedly different than what he told us while on the campaign trail.
Imagine my surprise.
Neocons are breaking out the champagne to celebrate the removal of Alex Jones from social media.
The moment president Donald Trump invited the neocon John Bolton to run his foreign policy it was obvious Iran would fall between the crosshairs. Bolton has advocated killing Iranians since his days as US ambassador (unconfirmed) to the UN.
Last Sunday, Trump threatened Iran and president Rouhani. The Donald felt it was necessary to use all caps to get his message across. Continue reading “Trump’s All Cap Iran Tweet: Precursor to War?”
Trump’s support for Israel and its systematic slaughter of Palestinians took a beating this week when the United Nations flat out rejected a resolution introduced by the intrepid Nikki Haley. She wants to blame the Palestinians for Israel murdering them in the hundreds.
The UN rejected this and condemned Israel for its “excessive, disproportionate and indiscriminate” force against Palestinian civilians. 120 nations voted in favor of the resolution. Eight voted against, led by the United States and Israel. This resulted in the United States withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council in protest.
During the Trump campaign, I wrote a book on the influence of Frank Gaffney, the fringe neocon who has made a career pulling fire alarms, telling us Islam will destroy western civilization and enslave us to Sharia law.
Earlier this week Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton installed Fred Fleitz as the National Security Council’s executive secretary and chief of staff. Fleitz worked for Bolton at the State Department during the Bush administration. He is a senior staff member at the Center for Security Policy (CPS), a hardline neocon think tank founded by Gaffney. Its raison d’etre is taking out the mullahs in Iran, who are invariably described as “Islamofascists,” and unflattering support for the Israeli Likudnik ethnic cleansers.
Kim Jung-un was upset. Trump’s VP Mike Pence made an indelicate reference to the Libyan Model. It wasn’t a good sign following John Bolton’s use of the term. The corporate propaganda media mentioned denuclearization, but left alone “we came, we saw, he died,” Hillary Clinton’s psychopathic take on Caesar in response to Gaddafi’s brutal murder.
It will take a while for Trump and his crew of recycled neocons and neo-neocons—converts of the MAGA variety—to realize their perverse dream of overthrowing the mullahs in Iran.
An outright invasion is out of the question. While an invasion effectively overthrew Saddam Hussein and prepared the way for destroying Iraq, that event was preceded by more than a decade of medieval sanctions that killed over a million people, including 500,000 children. In effect, Iraq was a third world basket case with a broken military long before George W. Bush and his neocon marauders invaded.
