How Trump Duped Russia, Turkey, Syria,Iran and the Press

The press has lambasted President Trump, calling him an idiot, an imbecile,  and worse.  The reaction of the press to his decision to pull American troops out of Syria brought further condemnation by the press, outrage even, with the Daily Beast painting the President as unpredictable.  In all the criticism, and reaction, the press, most of Congress, much of the President’s cabinet and the enemies of the US missed the truth.  Trump never planned to pull out of Syria.  Not for a long time in the future.

In one move President Trump revealed the ill intentions harbored by numerous enemies.  Turkey’s double dealing was revealed for all to see.  Their secret relationship with Iran was uncovered as were Russia’s intention to help carve up Syria.  He flushed out members of his cabinet that would not stand by his strategies.

As he had many times before, the reaction to his plans laid bare the true intentions of the enemy.  Russia wasted no time trying to arrange a meeting with Turkey and Iran.   Turkish backed Syrian troops started positioning themselves for an attack on Kurdish held Manbij.  Turkey’s desire to take the Kurdish areas was on the table for all to see.

The alignment of Turkey and Russia, with Turkey being a NATO state, demonstrates their unreliability as an ally.  Turkey’s willingness to sit down with Iran threatens everyone in the region.

John Bolton’s trip to Israel put conditions on the pullout which could keep troops in Syria for years. (New York Times)  By the time Israel was reassured all the players had already revealed their cards.  Turkey had been revealed as an deceitful partner, Russia clearly an opportunist with designs on the area,  and congressmen and cabinet members with an anti-Trump agenda were rooted out.

The classic redirection put each of these players and the press in a tizzy.  Nevertheless, in terms of geo-political power President Trump out them all.  Each revealed things about their plans and intentions that could be countered by just staying engaged.  Our press and our enemies took Trump at his word and failed to see the wider plan. Even as the plan becomes clear,  the media can’t grasp it.

As just a spectator I can only see the broader benefit of the ruse.  The facts made public.  Add the intelligence gathering and informational benefit and the reality is the Trump along with US interests gained mightily while each of the other players have lost major face.  Trump outsmarted them all.  The troops stay, and the conditions of their withdrawal have been set.  The bad faith plans of our enemies have been laid bare for the world to see.

One day the press might give the President credit for out thinking our enemies. I doubt that. They certainly will never give him credit for out thinking the media, which has once again show itself to be the true dupe.

Ted 3 (The Bear Comes Out)

The stuffed bear of erstwhile movie fame has two credits to his resume.  If bad humor could get votes, I think people would vote for the stuffed zoo escapee for President.  Instead they put their hope on the king of media, Donald Trump.    He is the 2016 version of hope and change.  No depth, no values, no commitment to anything other than winning.  We already elected that guy, BARACK OBAMA.

With Ted Cruz, if you look at his record, you have to conclude he has a moral foundation and is a phenomenal supporter of the constitution.  If you support life, believe in the second amendment and small government, then he is the Ted for you.  This is TED 3.

Unless, Cruz learns to speak plainly and bluntly he won’t succeed.  His message needs to be raw, not erudite.  Unless he masters that he won’t pull the blind mice from following Trump the New York piper.

Liberty University Betrays Christianity

Dear Rev. Jerry Falwell Jr.

As the President of Liberty University, your recent endorsement of Donald Trump is a stab in the womb for all those who wish to see the carnage that is abortion in America stopped.    Trump in on record supporting abortion rights for women and at one point did not even object to partial birth abortions when asked.   I can’t believe you are not completely informed about this.  Your endorsement of Trump in no different than telling every student at Liberty University that abortion is a viable option.

What did he offer you Jerry?  Trump said he would make deals with everyone.  Is he planning on supporting Christians by killing their babies?  Did he give you a ride on his plane?  Did he offer Liberty University more money in financial aid for students?  Is it really about the money?  Did he pay you personally?

Trump has a long history of supporting Democratic causes and views.  He has promised to work with them, to make deals.  Obviously, he has made a deal with you where you are willing to compromise your Christian values for some sort of gain.   What was said in that closed door meeting between you two where you agreed to do this?  Is there some sort of dirt you need to avoid?  I do not know what really happened but given the history of Liberty University, it is very suspicious.

Congratulations on your stance.  It is one that shows no principle, no backbone and nothing but contempt for the cause of life.  I would urge every student at Liberty University to go elsewhere.  I know that for my children I will urge them not to consider every going to a place that has the same values as any secular institution.  Your choice to endorse Trump is a betrayal of life, and a betrayal of every student and alumni of Liberty University.

It is always sad when a “believer” appears to fall.

Sincerely,

Keith Risman

Corruption– Why you can’t trust the news?

In 2008 the Clinton Foundation gave $100,000 dollars to the NY Times charity campaign, but the NY Times failed to list this contribution.  Of course the NY Times has a history of protecting and promoting liberals, particularly the Clintons.  Why do you think they did not publicly list this contribution?

Regularly we see the Whitehouse say something and this is followed by CBS, ABC, NBC and MSNBC saying the same exact thing, often word for word.  There in no reporting going on in these stories, just parroting the government line.  What if it is more than just lazy reporting or ideology?   What if the government has found a way to funnel cash into these networks in exchange for blanket repetition of government propaganda?  What if that cash also provides for the suppression of stories that are not favorable to the government?

In 2013 Federal Agencies spent $892 million on advertising.  That is almost a billion dollars by which the government can buy media support.  Our own tax dollars going to fund propaganda.    That is just one way the government funnels money to news organizations.   I am sure that it is just the tip of the corruption chain.  What about the Clinton Foundation, Media Matters, Unions etc?   It is an endless chain of money to buy the media’s cooperation.

Perhaps the media does not have a liberal bias, perhaps it is just bought and paid for.  I am pretty sure that no one in the media has the courage to expose this.  It is a shame, since at one time reporters were the bravest among us.  Now they are nothing more than parrots and sheep.
