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.

Living in Fear

That is what the media wants from you, to live in terror, to fear that the oceans will rise and wipe out Hawaii or that there is a rash of crime and you are the target.  Compounded with legitimate fears it is amazing that any of us function at all.  I was recently  impressed by a friend of mine facing potentially terminal cancer, but he was not fearful.  To be more accurate he was not worried about death.  He was more worried about the discomfort  of chemo than he was about the prospect of dying.

I have noticed that believers who have accepted Christ as their savior generally face potentially fatal events with far less trepidation than those that are in any other religion. There a grace and peace that believers in Christ have that provides an assurance of what will occur after death.  That assurance is not one of a mental understanding but one of a heart understanding that is often described as from the holy spirit.  Beyond the indisputable events of Jesus’s death and resurrection that to me is proof of that reality.  It is the impact of that reality on this world.

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.

Truth Matters

Whether you believe the 10 commandments came from God or man, some of those rules prevent civilization from disintegrating.  Thou shall not bear false witness; thou shall not covet; thou shall not commit adultery; thou shall not steal and thou shall not commit murder are the ones that come to mind.  As a society, the backbone of common law has been built on these concepts.  When these values break down, such as in Chicago, or the Middle East, mass murder and death ensue.   Forget the Duggars and the moral overhead, when much of society quits following the five rules listed above, the future of that society is at risk.  That is where we in the US find ourselves today.

This morning a man attacked the Dallas police department headquarters with the intent of killing as many Dallas police officers as possible.  He certainly did not place a high value on the thou shalt not kill commandment.  Those in the inner city stealing, killing and coveting over their desire for drugs certainly don’t hold those principles.   When this lack of respect for these basic values predominate the result is chaos and death.

More disturbing is when the media and the government no longer adhere to these principles.  The example they set filters into the rest of society destroying its very fabric.   When a narrative of “Hand Up Don’t Shoot”  which was based completely on a lie generates protests, riots, death and destruction, the media that fostered this story is 100% responsible.  When the government uses that same narrative to take over police departments it too is responsible for the lack of policing that follows.  That is why deaths are up dramatically in Baltimore.

The attitude from both the current regime and much of the media is that the ends justify the means.  History is replete with those who had the same attitude. When CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC or FOX News report a story based on a truth they want to promote and not based on truth, bad things happen.  When the idea that racism is pervasive in police departments is promoted even with massive evidence in most cases to the contrary, the idea takes root and people protest the non-existent racism resulting in death and destruction.  When media reports about a Trayvonn Martin are doctored more people get hurt.

Whether in Nazi Germany, the Old Soviet Union or today’s China, media control or influence by the government results in death and chaos.  The fact that the media no longer holds truth in high regard means much of society will no longer hold that value.  Every lie, every misreporting that is agenda driven and not fact driven damages society and hurts innocent people.  If this trend does not reverse,  no personal property, no freedom and no lives will be worth anything.  There will come a time this impacts those in the media, where their families will be harmed by inner city violence as it spreads to the suburbs and beyond.  I wonder, if when that occurs they will make the connection.

Had they not chosen the glorify lies, to parrot government speak,  to ignore inner city deaths, to covet influence over society then the damage would not have occurred.  We already  see some of the damage as median incomes have fallen, as there are more people on food stamps than ever before,  as even at $2.50 gas prices are artificially high, and as death reigns in the inner cities.  Sadly there is little impact I can have.  It is up to each individual to hold these basic principles at priorities.  If society does this we will all prosper.  As long as society as led by the media and the government do not uphold these values we will continue to see a decline into chaos, an increase in poverty and the disintegration of society.

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.

Obamacare – Deathcare

Tens of thousands lost their doctors.  Millions of American lost their insurance. Millions more now pay substantially more out of their own pockets for health insurance for substantially less benefit.  Yet, Obama this week claimed that Obamacare Works.  The only measure that indicates that this program works is that some insurance companies are making a lot more profit than they were before this program was enacted.  The program does not work, has never worked and costs lives, and livelihoods.

Congress has the numbers and the power to abolish this program and override a veto as it remains so unpopular that even senate democrats will vote to abolish it, if they are presented with the bill as a campaign issue.  The insurance companies that are making more lobby to keep Obamacare, often more out of fear than true desire.   ABC, NBC, CBS, and MSNBC all continue to support it because it fits their agenda and provides ad dollars from the insurance companies.  In fact, these outlets are as responsible for this law remaining in effect as is Congress.

Obamacare won’t pay for a head transplant, (we can understand why this is experimental)  but cutting out the best cancer drugs and doctors has already caused the loss of life.  Every time one of these stories is ignored by ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, or FOX News these organizations along with Congress are responsible for murder.   Most of the media ignores the truth and continues to put out false information about these programs.

Whether they do so because they improve their profits, or because of ideology, or because of political pressure does not matter.  They are, by law, supposed to foster the public good.  This is one area among many where they have not only fostered public harm, but continue to do so.  As Obama Praises Obamacare this week, none of them challenged him, or publically excoriated a program that continues to harm Americans by the millions.  By that standard their license to be on the airwaves should be revoked.

Congress needs to cancel this program lock stock and barrel.  Pay for play in this area continues to cost American lives and make millions of Americans poorer and at greater health risk than ever before.  It is almost impossible to boycott every news organization but every Congressman that does not successfully repeal this law needs to be voted out. Period.  Every candidate that does not actively work toward its repeal needs to be not elected.  It is time to take back our lives in this area.

Unseen Forces Trying to Tear Apart The United States

On the front page of the Communist Party USA  website there is the following falsehood and quote:

“Every day, Black residents of Ferguson and Missouri face possible abuse and death at the hands of an officer due to discriminatory…”

In addition, according to Fox news, in Ferguson after the riots, flyers from the Communist Party were found encouraging rioters and protesters.    The fact that the officer in Ferguson was defending himself against a thug who had just committed a strong arm robbery in a convenience store is completely ignored.  The riots, based strictly on news propaganda and falsehoods have resulted in gun shots and businesses burned to the ground.

Not only is the Communist Party of the United States well represented among the rioters but the New Black Panthers have also been promoters of the riots and associated violence.  These groups are leading masses of students and poorly educated rabble to believe that there is some conspiracy to harm black people in America.  The truth is far more sinister and sad. These rioters have been manipulated so that these groups can promote their own agenda,  destroying the fabric of capitalism.  The very thing that has created such prosperity in this country is the thing they want destroyed.  It is a philosophy that believes that if one person has more, that person should be destroyed and the fruits of his labor taken from him.

When Barrack Obama told the protesters to “Stay the course.”  he was clearly sending the message that he sides with those that want to tear the fabric of this country apart.    These riots were and continue to be planned, encouraged and supported by the federal government.  They are a threat to democracy.  Their timing also helps hide the recent unconstitutional step the President has taken to allow illegal immigrants work permits in violation of the law.

The masses of people protesting blindly absorb the information they are being fed by the networks and media.  Fueled by that and the undercurrent of communist rhetoric they follow into the streets with some idea that their protests will result in a better life for themselves.

The reality  is that the protests will result in less policing in the black community.  The killers and thugs that roam many of the inner cities now will be given free reign and more black on black crime will result.  Fewer businesses will locate in black communities further impoverishing them.  From the standpoint of the Communist Party that creates  more strife with which to encourage more violence and social destruction.   These communities are being spoon fed to be the fodder for a social revolution.  All they while they are getting poorer and more violent.  The result will be death and destruction of the very things that enable these communities to survive currently.

Poverty in America means power in every household, cell phones, indoor plumbing, free education, free food, and often free medical care.  As the riots continue and the ancillary results are seen, these things will also be destroyed.  The communist’s agenda always results in outhouses and poverty for everyone.  It is sad that so many are willing to follow as lambs to the slaughter to push a discredited philosophy of which they themselves are ignorant.

Every American needs to speak out against these forces.  The media, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, and CBS needs to stop being complicit in promoting this violence and held to account for their failure to report the truth.   Those responsible for looting and destruction need to be held accountable.  Those promoting violence need to be arrested and punished for the resulting violence.  The riots have been spreading even though the basis, (Than Michael Brown was targeted.) is a lie.  The power of being able to lead sheep through propaganda, a huge threat to democracy.
