What is really on President Trump’s agenda, what is trustworthy, and what is sheer farce and eventually killed by its own weight of controversy? The million-dollar question on where President Trump is headed is still a door to a dark room.
Where is Mr. Trump coming from and where is he going to? What is really on his agenda, what is trustworthy, and what is sheer farce and eventually killed by its own weight of controversy? – While out there, the different agenda items are spun around by the presstitute as anti-Trump and pro-establishment propaganda. Left and right do no longer exist. The so-called liberal elitist intellectual “left” has sold its soul to the neocons, they may not even realise to what extent. The benefits they cash-in have blinded them to the disaster politics being propagated by the globalist-Atlantists. They are now fully in the realm of the Netanyahu-and-his-Zionist-cronies directed western mass-media. After all, the lush western comfort zone is difficult to leave – while it lasts; key sentence – “while it lasts”. Thereafter the deluge – which may mean eradication of life on earth as we know it.
In comes Trump, thinking he doesn’t need the establishment; a multi-billionaire who doesn’t need the approval or the money from the establishment. In a symbolic gesture, he renounced his salary as President of the United States. – If it only were that simple.
In a historic move, President Trump has signed in the first ten days in Office an impressive number of Presidential Decrees and Executive Orders, has initiated long phone calls with friends and foes – and even received the Prime Minister of Washington’s closest ally, Mme. Theresa May from the UK. To be sure, she came with her own agenda, a trade deal and a promise to keep NATO alive. In the light of everything else that is going on, did she get what she came for, or is it yet another make-believe propaganda event?
Among the Executive Orders, Presidential Decrees and Controversies, is the objective of achieving a peaceful alliance with Russia, jointly fighting terrorism in the Middle East, notably eradicating ISIS and affiliated terror groups like Al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda and other belligerent mercenaries, eventually to finding peace in Syria, Iraq and the Middle East as a whole – as well as in Ukraine.
Mr. Trump also considers NATO “obsolete” and outdated – and rightly so. Since 1991, the official role of NATO, to defend Europe from a possible intrusion of the Soviet Union has disappeared. Never mind, that NATO has since then be reborn, namely as a constant aggressor of Russia, against all agreements made between the “allies”, winners of WWII in 1991, expanding its military bases from 12 in 1991 to over 30 today, all encircling and threatening Russia – willingly provoking possibly an all-devastating WWIII. It is clear that western promises, agreements and diplomacy count for nothing. The US/Western military industrial complex calls the shots – or enunciated differently: lucrative destructive military production and war overrule peace; they buy politicians and diplomats.
