I should have known better, but I thought here was a guy who didn’t owe the establishment anything. Everyone with any significant power during the Bush-Obama years was against him. They did everything in their power to destroy him and prevent him from winning the presidency. The media, virtually every well known politician, Hollywood celebrities, Wall Street, “respectable” Europeans, the foreign policy “establishment.” They were all aligned against him, and despite whatever party affiliation or claim to impartiality they may have held prior to 2016, they all did whatever they could to restore the Clintons to power.
And Trump specifically campaigned against Mid-East Wars. Aside from immigration it was his number one issue. He said it wasn’t in American interests to intervene in all these foreign conflicts and he was right. I certainly had my doubts about him, but I thought at least he won’t mindlessly attack, bomb, or invade these Muslim countries anymore. At least there will be less war under this clown than there was under Obama. Certainly less than there would be under a Clinton regime.
Less than three months in and he’s bombed Syria because of some chemical weapons attack that will almost certainly turn out to be a false flag. Or maybe an instance where the Syrian military bombed a warehouse where the rebels were storing chemical weapons. Why did he do it? Because he was upset that “beautiful babies” were killed. So he bombed a country and is ready to escalate a war that was winding down. This escalation will certainly result in even more dead babies. It will result in more refugees flooding the West including the United States. It will inspire more terrorists.
Incredibly, he seems ready to risk war with Russia to overthrow the Syrian dictator which is pure insanity. This after promising for the past year that he would get along with Putin.
Fuck Trump. He’s completely betrayed his campaign rhetoric in the first hundred days. He only won the presidency because he repudiated the neocons in the primaries and then immediately after taking office became a neocon himself. I mean would Jeb Bush be much different as far as actual results are concerned? Trump tried to pass Paul Ryan’s ObamaCare light and denounced libertarians and conservatives that were against it. He’s done nothing on immigration other than a travel ban that was immediately blocked by some Obama era judges. The troop buildup in Eastern Europe continues unabated. The man who called NATO “obsolete” just enthusiastically expanded it by adding Montenegro. (Please explain to me how Americans benefit from Montenegro being under US protection. What happened to America First?)
Is there anything positive coming? Doesn’t look good to me.
I guess at least TPP is dead. Although even Killary campaigned against that thing.
Don’t join the military. Don’t wave the flag. Don’t support the D.C. regime under any circumstances. Don’t put any faith in any candidates for office. Even supposed outsiders will immediately capitulate and go along with the Deep State the minute they assume the presidency.
