U.S. Empire of Chaos Loses its Footing and Attempts to Topple Democratically Elected Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte: Part One

Ferdinand Magellan Trip Around The World

On the 16th of March 1521, Spaniard explorer Ferdinand Magellan, sailing from Spain, reached the archipelago of what was to become the Philippines. With the colonization that followed, the Philippines became part of the Spanish Empire, ending in 1898 when the U.S. Deep State targeted Cuba’s local gold (sugar) thanks to the 15th February 1898 dubious explosion of the U.S.S. Maine battleship in the harbor of Havana. This terrorist act did trigger the Spanish-American war and the beginning of the American Colonial Era of the Philippines. The Spanish-American war was followed by the 1899—1992 Philippine—American War and the Commonwealth period that was designed as a transitional administration in preparation for the country’s full achievement of independence.

Rodrigo Roa Duterte: Philippines 16th President

Rodrigo Roa Duterte, born in 1945 in Maasin, Southern Leyte, a law graduate, with a seven times Davos City’s Mayor proven track record, became the 16th President of the Philippines. Rodrigo Roa Duterte presents a potential threat to the Washington neocon leaders as he turned towards China and Russia and waved a French farewell “au revoir” to the Washington neocon thugs. The U.S. Empire of Chaos does not take this sort of loyalty shift lightly and many of us know what the Washington entourage is capable of when countries stop toeing the Washington neoconservative fascist line.

During an October 2017 visit to Beijing China, Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, accompanied by 250 Philippine business leaders, made some remarkable comments that paved the way to what he called “a new commercial alliance as relations with longtime ally Washington deteriorate . . .In this venue, your honors, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States.” Duterte told Chinese and Philippine business people, to applause, at a forum in the Great Hall of the People attended by Chinese Vice Premier Zhang. “Both in military, not maybe social, but economics also, America has lost.” Furthermore, President Dutarte added “For as long as I am here, do not treat us like a doormat because you’ll be sorry.” He added. “I will not speak with you. I can always go to China.”

___Screen Shot 09-04-17 at 11.24 PMaaaExercises in the disputed South China Sea have been put on hold, and 107 US troops operating drones surveilling Muslim militants will also have to leave the country soon, the Philippines Defense chief said. President Rodrigo Duterte said he wants an ongoing US-Philippine amphibious beach landing drill to be the last in his six-year presidency, with plans to halt all the 28 military exercises carried out with US forces every year.“This year would be the last,” Duterte pledged on Friday in Davao in the southern Philippines, AP reported. Dutarte also made some crude comments towards (former US. President) Barack Obama: the outspoken Philippines leader said his US counterpart Barack Obama, whom he has previously publicly called a “son-of-a-b***h,” should “go to hell.” Experts say the Philippines president’s plans to limit the presence of US troops will thwart Washington’s intention to beef up US forces in Southeast Asia in order to counter China. “President Duterte’s shoot-from-the-hip style of parochial democracy is deeply troubling,” Carl Thayer, an expert on the South China Sea, told AP. “If Duterte moves to curtail US rotational military presence from bases in the Philippines, this would undermine the US ability to deter China not only in defense of Philippines sovereignty, but regional security as well.”

Meanwhile the warmongering U.S. Empire of Chaos is remodeling Guantánamo Bay (Cuba) facilities and planning to invest a mere USD 500 million in new construction, from which USD 250 million for the hospital facilities: five additional beds: USD 50 million per bed.” Not bad for a Zimbabwe money printing style nation with twenty trillion USD debt!

Things are not doing well for the Anglo-American elite, The Bretton Woods Reserve Currency USD is losing its grip on an international community beginning to create and establish alternative competing financial products and institutions:

  • BRICSBrazilRussiaIndiaChina and South Africa as an alternative to the Bretton Woods Western nations’ USDGBPEUR and ¥EN
  • SCOShanghai Cooperation Organizationas as alternative to NATO
  • AIIBAsian Infrastructure and Investment Bank as alternative to the IMF
  • CIPSChinese inter-banking payment system as alternative to SWIFT
  • Shanghai Gold Exchange as alternative to the fraudulent financial paper markets of London and New York
  • CFFEX: China’s New China Financial Future Exchange

___Geopolitics_P_AIIB_57+13.Member.nations_aaa

The AIIB or Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank is a major development in the international world of finances and a direct threat to US Dollar based institutions such as the Federal Reserve (FED), the IMF (International Monetary Fund), the World Bank, the Bank of England (BoE), the European Central Bank (ECB), the Bank of Japan (BoJ), and last but not least the Bank of International Settlements in Basel (BIS.)

Many of us may not have heard of the AIIB, but let’s not kid ourselves, The AIIB is a major financial threat to the 1944 Bretton Woods International Reserve Currency agreements. No less than 57 countries contributed to the start of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank; among others: The Philippines, France, Germany, Switzerland, Britain, South Korea, Canada, Belgium, Hungary, Ireland and Hong Kong.

But let’s get back to the Philippines, three archipelagos became of strategic importance for the geopolitical control of the U.S. Empire: the Philippines, Taiwan and Japan. As a footnote let’s not forget that following World War II, Japan and Germany remained to this very day two U.S. vassal states and US-occupied territories

To be followed….

George Friedman: A Neocon’s Blatant Speech on U.S.–Exceptionalism and U.S. Single-Handed International Warmongering Rights

Stratfor, a U.S. neocon geopolitical think-tank, should be considered as an extended arm of the United States’ Criminal Information Agency also known as the CIA.  George Friedman, a Jewish Hungarian naturalized U.S. citizen, is the CEO and co-founder of Stratfor: an organization that has often been described as the “Shadow CIA.” Geopolitical News considers Stratfor’s writings and geopolitical views as an unashamed ambassador for the Anglo-American neocon doctrine of worldwide hegemonic dominance or as coined by F. William Engdhal: Full Spectrum Dominance Totalitarian Democracy.

In order to remain a monocentric Empire, Friedman says, the United States of America must make sure, as it has been doing since World War One and for the last hundred years, that a rapprochement between Germany and Russia never takes place. A pluricentric world could threaten the U.S. Empire particularly a Russo-German alliance that would combine Germany’s state of the art technology and Russia’s vast amount of natural resources.

Another U.S. center of neo conservative Anglo American factories is the CCGA: The Chicago Council on Global Affairs. The CCGA is a non-elected, de facto U.S. government agency where renowned world leaders such as John Kerry, former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and Dr. Angela Merkel have all held speeches.  

In George Friedman’s CCGA speech, “Europe — Destined for Conflict?” (February 3rd of 2015), Friedman cynically touches on very sensitive nerves when straightforwardly admitting that the U.S. coup d’état in Ukraine was the “most blatant coup in history.” Two main points emerge from Friedman’s speech: 1. Creation of a European cordon sanitaire between Western Europe and Russia. 2. Prevention of a rapprochement thus détente and cooperation between Russia and Germany.

1. Creation of a European cordon sanitaire

___Screen Shot 08-23-17 at 02.19 PM

U.S. policy of containment encircling Russia

Cordon sanitaire according Wikipedia “is a French phrase that, literally translated, means ‘sanitary cordon’. It originally denoted a barrier implemented to stop the spread of infectious diseases. It may be used interchangeably with the term ‘quarantine’, and although the terms are related, cordon sanitaire refers to the restriction of movement of people within a defined geographic area, such as a community. The term is also often used metaphorically, in English, to refer to attempts to prevent the spread of an ideology deemed unwanted or dangerous.” 

French Prime Minister George Clémenceau (1917—1920) is credited with the first use of the phrase as a metaphor for ideological containment. In March 1919, he urged the newly independent border states that had seceded from Russian Empire and Soviet Russia to form a defensive union and thus quarantine the spread of communism to Western Europe: he called such an alliance a cordon sanitaire. As a native speaker of French, I can only underline the arrogance and rudeness of such geopolitical choice of words.

George Friedman speaking at the CCGA

Getting back to George Friedman’s CCGA speech and the Q&A session that followed, let’s review Friedman’s answer to an attendee’s first question:

(44:50) “Mr. Friedman, thank you for your analysis very much appreciated. If you are in Ukraine right now, and you are the Ukrainian government . . . or the people . . . what do you do? . . . What is next for Ukraine?”

(46:44 —48:10) George Friedman’s answer: “. . . He [ Lt.Gen. Ben Hodges, Commander U.S. Army Europe ] then left and announced . . . that the U.S. will be pre-positioning armor, artillery and other equipment in the Baltic [Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania], Poland, Romania and Bulgaria, which is a very interesting point . . . In all of this, the United States acted outside the context of NATO . . . So the point is, the United States is prepared to create a cordon sanitaire around Russia. Russia knows it, Russia believes the United States intends to break the Russian Federation; I think that, as Peter Lorry put it, ‘We do not want to kill you, we just want to hurt you a little bit.’ Either way, we are back in the [Cold War] old game (emphasis Geopolitical News) . . .

2. Prevention of a rapprochement between Russia and Germany

The second question asked is of quintessential importance because it nails the U.S. perspectives vis à vis its European geopolitical ambitions:

(53:17 — 53:34) Attendee question: “is Islamist extremism really the major threat to the USA and will it die on its own or will it keep growing?”

George Friedman’s answer: “It is a problem to the United States but it is not an existential threat; it has to be dealt with but it has to be dealt with proportionately; we have other foreign policy interests. Sothe primordial interest of the United States of America, over which for centuries we fought wars, First and Second and Cold War, has been the relationship between Germany and Russia because united they are the only force that could threaten us, and to make sure that does not happen (emphasis Geopolitical News), I say this as a possible victim of Islamic terrorism, it will happen … Even if we develop all of our efforts to preventing it, we will fail therefore if we do what we did in a decade after 9/11, which is utterly concentrate on that issue to the exclusion of all else, so that our army cannot fight unless it has sand under its feet, just not used to it, there are much larger dangers to the United States out there. It is very difficult to say to a country that has been hit by 9/11: take it in stride and no government can. But, the discipline of governance is that, while at the same time reassuring people that you are doing everything you can, you make sure you are not. . You are making as much as you reasonably should and our government… We have to remember the United States is like a fifteen year old, it’s manic depressive, in the morning it is love peace, love and happiness, at night it is suicidal because their best friend does not like them anymore: We are a very young empire we don’t even want to think about being an empire. We want to go home and have libertarian dreams: it won’t happen but it takes us a very long time to become mature. Georges Bush had not idea that his presidency was going to be about 9/11 and had no idea how to respond and neither did his critics. Barack Obama decided he could wish it all away. If he was nice, they won’t try to blow him up. We have to find a pattern of governance that combines an American Republic with what it never wanted to be, but we are almost one quarter of the world’s economy; we are going to piss people off a lot.”

___Screen Shot 08-23-17 at 03.04 PMaaa

In other words, the goal of the United States of America with its annual military budget exceeding 600 billion USD (more than all other nations’ military budgets combined) is to achieve the Pentagon’s Joint Vision 2020 of a unipolar world of full spectrum dominance: divide and conquer, Divide Et Impera.

George Friedman’s neocon views are sharp and high-pitched, cynical and arrogant, particularly when criticizing the U.S. wasting time and resources on a “Muslim threat” that does not qualify as an existential one! So one could and should ask: why on earth is the U.S. “allegedly fighting terrorism” in so many countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen via its proxy Saudi Arabia?

Parallels between Pre-WWI and Pre-World-War Three | How France and Britain Were Threatened by the German Empire | Part One

One of the oldest currencies in the history of mankind is the British Pound going all the way back to Anglo Saxon times in the 8th Century A.D. “. . . From 760 onward till around 1158, pennies were made from the finest silver that the Crown could get, as opposed to today’s pennies made from copper or metal. The sterling pound (in French: £ivre Sterling), in terms of the word was introduced in 1158 because over 90% of it was made from silver itself. The first gold noble coin was introduced into Britain in 1344. The shilling was introduced in 1487, while a new version of the pound was revealed in 1489. As you can see the changes from the 760 to the 1489 shows how quick currency has evolved as the monarchy asserted itself as the leader of how currency should be used. Gold has always been an important part of British currency history as in this period; it was also used to finance whatever was needed in the country by the aristocracy and the gentry . . .credit: peachy.co.uk

By the end of the 19th century, after Germany finally clobbered France in the 1870-1871 Franco-Prussian war, the newly created German Empire started reuniting under Kaiser Wilhelm II’s leadership (1888 to 1918), thus creating an economic threat to globalists empire-hungry Britain and France.  As a reaction to this German-Austrian trade threat aka trade war, Britain, with its Merchandise Marks Act of 1887 gave birth to the “Made in Germany” label. “. . . This label was originally introduced in Britain . . . to mark foreign produce more obviously, as foreign manufactures had been falsely marking inferior goods with the marks of renowned British manufacturing companies and importing them into the United Kingdom. Most of these were found to be originating from Germany, whose government had introduced a protectionist policy to legally prohibit the import of goods in order to build up domestic industry.”

The British Law “Made in Germany” was initially supposed to achieve two things:

  1. Stamp imported German products as third rated and of inferior quality
  2. Promote “British Craftsmanship” to British citizenry 

___Screen Shot 08-17-17 at 04.01 PMbbbToday, very few Germans acknowledge the fact that Germany owes their world renowned “Made in Germany” stamp of quality, which initially was intended as a stamp of third-rateness, to Britain.  By the late 19th century, Britain was becoming an industrial cul-de-sac or a business dwarf compared to the newly created German Empire and its 1882 Triple Alliance with Austria and Italy.

It was the German economy that threatened Britain and France prior to the start of World War One and certainly not the other way around as French and British history books would like us to believe. It was Britain that was becoming a bankrupt “World Empire” as British Gold supplies (British Pound backed up by Gold until 1914) were melting like snow in the sun, to the profit of Germany’s economy, which became a threat to Britain.   

It is worth noticing that Britain had enjoyed a British Pound, first backed up by silver and later on by gold until the gold standards were removed first time in 1914.  By the end of the 19th century, Britain’s economy was going from bad to worse, forced to borrow from its Central Bank to finance a much needed war that was supposed, as Winston Churchill would later on say during World War One, ” [to] smash the strength of the German people once and for all.”

Due to late nineteen century inequality of trade between Britain and the new kid around the block Germany, Britain was losing much of its gold. thus threatening the British Empire to its very core. Why did Britain and France, via the Dictate of Versailles, claimed 132 billion gold marks  (USD 450 billion in today’s dollars) from Germany? Gold Marks: not paper money as issued by the Bank of England established in 1694. Britain’s five centuries of ongoing wars with France, from the Hundred Years War in 1337 to the 1815 Napoleonic wars, had already left major scars on its economy.  

Anti-Germanistic feelings have often been expressed by duplicitous France but also hypocritical Britain. “Even today, American and British media concentrates what scant attention it bestows on anything German almost completely from a negative perspective until the point where the very word “German” is synonymous with ‘bad.’ German historical figures of greatness are rarely mentioned or their contributions are ignored, “misappropriated” or minimized. We are subjected to hundreds of dated British serials and sit-coms on public television which obsess about evil ‘Germans.'” Source: www.revisionist.net

Let’s take a quick look at the British Automobile industry. Is there such a thing? Where are the fine “Made in Britain” Automobiles such as Daimler Benz, BMW (Bayerische Motor Werke), Audi, Volkswagen (VW) and Porsche? Where do we find “Made in England” craftsmanship in this 21st century?

Pre-WWI Britain became so fearful of the German Empire that its elite planned its utter destruction. Outrageous right? Well let Geopolitical News remind you of renowned World War I and II veteran and co-conspirator of the Lusitania’s sinking (Part One and Part Two) by the Germans: Winston Churchill’s quote on the Germans:  

Clipboard_Image 011_F

It is worth remembering that by the 1880’s, the newly create German Empire had caught up with the wealth of Britain, the 19th Century Industrial Revolution leader, to even surpass British steel production and the length of Britain’s railroad tracks. The German navy, thanks to the creation of its Imperial Navy started challenging the British one, thus the manufacturing of one of the world’s fastest sailing vessels at that time: the RMS Lusitania. Later on, the British navy transformed its RMS Lusitania into a warship that would end up being sunk by a German submarine near the coast of Ireland on May the seventh of 1915 (Part One and Part Two.)

Similar to Pre-WWI Britain and France struggling with their economies and threatened by industrial German powerhouse, London, Paris and Washington are again losing their industrial and financial footing; not only towards China (manufacturing most Western goods) and Russia (exporting raw materials) but also towards industrious and thrifty Germany.

The US Dollar, which became the world reserve currency after the 1944 Bretton Woods Agreements is dying of a slow death as reflected by international crude oil prices.

The Petrodollar was introduced by the US to the Saudis in 1974 following an oil crisis induced a year earlier by U.S. Envoy Henry Kissinger with the quadrupling of oil prices from three US Dollar to twelve US Dollar a barrel.

U.S. Exceptionalism and U.S. Global Terror Management Strategy | Oligarchs and Neocons’ Feudalistic Power Grab (Part Six)

There is a special breed of international financiers whose success typically is built upon certain character traits. Those include cold objectivity, immunity to patriotism, and indifference to the human condition. That profile is the basis for proposing a theoretical strategy, called the Rothschild Formula, which motivates such men to propel governments into war for the profits they yield… As long as the mechanism of central banking exists, it will be to such men an irresistible temptation to convert debt into perpetual war and war into perpetual debt.”        

  —G. Edward Griffin | Author of “The Creature from Jekyll Island

People, governments and economies of all nations must serve the needs of multinational banks and corporations.” 

—Zbigniew Brzezinski | Author of “The Grand Chessboard

Geopoliticalnews suggests a review of Part One, Part Two, Part Three of our series on “U.S. exceptionalism and its global terror management.” This alleged 21st century U.S. exceptionalism, Part Four and Part Five, doctrine is perfectly sustained by a the resurgence of virulent brand of neocon propaganda spewed by major U.S. newspapers with its goons and stooges: Part Four and Part Five.

We saw how this swaggering super-arrogant superpower, cowboys-on-steroids, imperialist U.S.A. continues to spread its “gospel of democracy”, mostly with coup d’états and wars (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Ukraine, to name just a few) and defend its fiat currency: USD, EUR, GBP and YEN system against the rising alternative offered by the BRICS, China’s SCO, AIIB, the new Shanghai Gold Exchange, the Financial Future Exchange (CFFEX), the CIPS, and the (Chinese) Renminbi, which entered the Special Drawing Rights (SDR) of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on October 1st of 2016. We reviewed the neocon financial tools: Quantitative Easing (QE) “to infinity” and derivative products such as Credit Default Swaps (CDS) as a way of kicking the financial can down the road and saw how ECB, FED, BOE and BOJ Central Banks destroy capital for the sake of bailing out the too-big-to-jail financial institutions.

As Dr. Stephen J. Sniegoski writes in: Transparent Cabal: The Neoconservative agenda, War in the Middle East, and the National Interest of Israel: “It was only the traumatic effects of the 9/11 terrorism that enabled the agenda of the neocons to become the policy of the United States of America.”

Where is the judicial foundation of all those U.S.-wars and coup d’états? Was the U.S., Britain or France threatened by Libya? What’s the heck were France (with its French President neocon Sarkozy) and Britain doing bombing Libya? Why were France and Britain meddling in Africa’s richest country and attacking its sovereignty instead of minding their own business and rebuilding their crumbling road-infrastructure or reducing their astronomic public debts, both in excess of two billion Euro?

What is Germany doing bombing Syria with the US-Allies and supporting the Empire of Chaos’ neocon imperialistic agenda instead of protecting the sovereignty of its own German territory? Where is the balance between the executive, legislative and judicial branches with its system of checks and balances? How could Angela Merkel have overstepped the judicial raison d’être of the German constitution to open Germany’s borders on September the 4th of 2015? Did Merkel consult with her government? Did Merkel democratically ask the German People?

How about the 9/11 hijacking of the U.S. Democracy? Shouldn’t have the legislative branch of the U.S government, represented by Congress, the House of Representatives and the Senate, been active? How come the U.S. Congress did not impeach the Bushes, Clinton’s and alleged Kenyan Squatter in Chief himself for drug trafficking and/or war crimes? Could not these be the signs of a resurging “democratic totalitarianism” just about to transform itself into outright fascism? Are we becoming a dystopian society?  Remember Henry Gouroux’s observation on oligarchy aka plutocracy and kleptocracy? 

The western world has being taken captive by oligarchs, plutocrats and kleptocrats represented by key cartel groups ruling the world of finances and business: We could call them the profiteering beneficiaries who can be easily classified in seven different industrial cartels: Finance, Media, Energy, Military, Pharmacy, Chemy and food:

Sixteen Reasons why the United States of America has become a Third World Country

I have been wrestling with the fact that the U.S.A could have already become a Third World Nation:

—Washington fascist neocon régime established since 911 coup d’état
Corrupt Republican and Democratic Washington cesspool
Rigged U.S. presidential 2016 elections
—Money Printing (QE), Zimbabwe style

U.S. Exceptionalism and U.S. Global Terror Management Strategy | Preemptive Strike & Neocons Mainstream Media Propaganda (Part Four)

In Part One, Part Two and Part Three of this series, we saw how the U.S. has become the Unipolar geopolitical Hegemon of our 21st Century although threatened by regional powers China and Russia. We compared conservatives and neoconservatives policies and observed how the military doctrine of Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) has been replaced by the post 9/11 neocon belief of “preemptive strike.”

geopolitics_f_noam-chomsky-german-political-culture_1Growing up in France in the early 70’s, I often listened to La Voix de la Russie (The Voice of Russia) and its daily spew of communist propaganda that I found amusing. Why? Because my family comes from Poland: Mom and Dad (born in Grenoble and Paris) had both Polish Parents. I once recall a radio-guest being asked about “allegedshootings and deaths of German Democratic Republic (GDR) citizens being caught trying to escape to the West. The GDR official replied: “This is Western Propaganda, the Berlin Wall is here to ‘protect’ GDR citizens from Westerners trying to ‘enter illegally’ into the German Democratic Republic (sic).”

What is actually atypical and preposterous is the fact that things have literally turned around one hundred per cent.  Similar to the former Soviet Union times, I am convinced that a new breed of propaganda has emerged: But this time, it comes from the West! Just like in the 70’s and 80’s the old Soviet Union was trying to “protect and defend” its crumbling empire, today’s Empire of Chaos (U.S., Britain and EU) is upholding its too-big-to-fail aka too-big-to-jail institutions via private Central Banks: FED, BOE, ECB and BOJ and a full array of financial policies, products and dicey skims:

Jacob Rothschild admits:

“The six months under review have seen [private central] bankers continuing what is surely the greatest experiment in monetary policy in the history of the whole world. We are therefore in uncharted waters and it is impossible to predict the unintended consequences of very low interest rates…” (see also here and here)

Witnessing how NATO has transformed itself, from a former Cold War defensive-asset into a war mongering neocon terror organization, one may just wonder at its horrific 78-day Serbian ethnic cleansing undertook in 1999 via the targeting of white Christian Serbs who did not pose any threat to Yugoslavia or NATO allies whatsoever.

During an interview by Andy Clark with Noam Chomsky, at the Amsterdam Forum on the 18th of December 2005:”Terror and Iraq“, Chomsky replied: “. . . [A]lthough every sane person knows that [oil] was the reason, if Iraq had been producing pickles and lettuce, would they have been invaded? I mean, let’s be serious. Of course it’s oil.” It was a calling for U.S. President George Walker Bush and Britain’s Prime Minister Anthony Charles Lynton (Tony) Blair‘s “Messianic Mission” too, Chomsky went on to say: “Bring democracy to Iraq and immediately everyone had to leap on the democratization bandwagon and it began to be described as the most noble war in history and so on and so forth.

And indeed, the mainstream media hogwash went on to spew even more neocon propaganda extraordinaire. I do apologize to my readers for this brief linguistic lesson but ordinär in German comes from the French ordinaire. “Extra-ordinär” then would mean “extra-vulgar” and/or “extra-offensive, which would very well describe the inaccuracy, falsehood and deceit of the three following statements:

And today, we remember everything that you did to make it possible. … (32:35) Years from now, your legacy will endure. In the names of your fallen comrades etched on headstones at Arlington and the quiet memorials across our country. In the whispered words of admiration as you march in parades, and in the freedom of our children and grandchildren. And in the quiet of night, you will recall that your heart was once touched by fire. You will know that you answered when your country called; you served a cause greater than yourselves. You helped forge a just and lasting peace with Iraq, and among all nations. I could not be prouder of you, and America could not be prouder of you. God bless you all, God bless your families, and God bless the United States of America.” —U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama | December 14, 2011 | Fort Bragg, North Carolina, USA

*William Blum concludes: “”Does Mr. [Barack Hussein] Obama, the Peace Laureate, believe the words that come out of his mouth? Barack H. Obama believes only in being the president of the United States. It is the only strong belief the man holds. But freedom has indeed reigned — for the great multinationals to extract everything they can from Iraq’s resources and labor without the hindrance of [Iraqi] public interest laws, environmental regulations, or worker protections.” (emphasis Geopoliticalnews)

Guest Article: “Trump’s Anti-Interventionism – Neocons Hate It As Anti-War Left Comes Around”

Original Link: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-06-22/trumps-anti-interventionism-neocons-hate-it-anti-war-left-comes-around

Submitted by John Walsh via LewRockwell.com,

Until recently the progressive mind has been resolutely closed and stubbornly frozen in place against all things Trump.

But cracks are appearing in the ice.  With increasing frequency over the last few months, some of the most thoughtful left and progressive figures have begun to speak favorably of aspects of Trump’s foreign policy.  Let us hear from these heretics, among them William Greider, Glen Ford, John Pilger, Jean Bricmont, Stephen F. Cohen and William Blum.  Their words are not to be construed as “endorsements,” but rather an acknowledgment of Trump’s anti-interventionist views, the impact those views are having and the alternative he poses to Hillary Clinton in the current electoral contest.

First, let’s consider the estimable William Greider, a regular contributor to The Nation and author of Secrets of the Temple.  He titled a recent article for the Nation, “Donald Trump Could be The Military Industrial Complex’s Worst Nightmare: The Republican Front Runner is Against Nation Building.  Imagine That.” 

Greider’s article is brief, and I recommend reading every precious word of it.  Here is but one quote: “Trump has, in his usual unvarnished manner, kicked open the door to an important and fundamental foreign-policy debate.”  And here is a passage from Trump’s interview with the Washington Post that Greider chooses to quote:

“‘I watched as we built schools in Iraq and they’d be blown up,’ Trump told the editors.  ‘And we’d build another one and it would get blown up. And we would rebuild it three times. And yet we can’t build a school in Brooklyn.… at what point do you say hey, we have to take care of ourselves. So, you know, I know the outer world exists and I’ll be very cognizant of that but at the same time, our country is disintegrating, large sections of it, especially in the inner cities.'”

Trump talks about building infrastructure for the inner cities, especially better schools for African American children, rather than bombing people of color halfway around the world!  That is hardly racism.  And it is not how the mainstream media wants us to think of The Donald.

Next, Glen Ford, the eloquent radical Left executive editor of Black Agenda Report, a superb and widely read outlet, penned an article in March 2016, with the following title: “Trump Way to the Left of Clinton on Foreign Policy – In Fact, He’s Damn Near Anti-Empire.” Ford’s piece is well worth reading in its entirety; here are just a few quotes :

“Trump has rejected the whole gamut of U.S. imperial war rationales, from FDR straight through to the present.”

 

“If Trump’s tens of millions of white, so-called ‘Middle American’ followers stick by him, it will utterly shatter the prevailing assumption that the American public favors maintenance of U.S. empire by military means.”

 

“Trump shows no interest in ‘spreading democracy,’ like George W. Bush, or assuming a responsibility to ‘protect’ other peoples from their own governments, like Barack Obama and his political twin, Hillary Clinton.”

 

“It is sad beyond measure that the near-extinction of independent Black politics has placed African Americans in the most untenable position imaginable at this critical moment: in the Hillary Clinton camp.

Next, let’s turn to John Pilger, the Left wing Australian journalist and documentary film maker who has been writing about Western foreign policy with unimpeachable accuracy and wisdom since the Vietnam War era.   Here are some of his comments on Trump:

“..Donald Trump is being presented (by the mass media) as a lunatic, a fascist.  He is certainly odious; but he is also a media hate figure.  That alone should arouse our skepticism.”

 

“Trump’s views on migration are grotesque, but no more grotesque than those of David Cameron. It is not Trump who is the Great Deporter from the United States, but the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Barack Obama.”

 

“In 1947, a series of National Security Council directives described the paramount aim of American foreign policy as ‘a world substantially made over in [America’s] own image’.  The ideology was messianic Americanism. We were all Americans. Or else. …”

 

“Donald Trump is a symptom of this, but he is also a maverick. He says the invasion of Iraq was a crime; he doesn’t want to go to war with Russia and China. The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton. She is no maverick. She embodies the resilience and violence of a system whose vaunted ‘exceptionalism’ is totalitarian with an occasional liberal face.

The money quote is: “The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton.”  When Pilger submitted his article to the “progressive” magazine Truthout, this sentence was deleted, censored as he reported, along with a few of the surrounding sentences.  Such censorship had not been imposed on Pilger by Truthout ever before.  Truthout’s commitment to free speech apparently has limits in the case of The Donald versus Hillary, rather severe ones.  So one must read even the progressive press with some skepticism when it comes to Trump.

Trump has also been noticed by the Left in Europe, notably by the sharp minded Jean Bricmont, physicist and author of Humanitarian Imperialism who writes here:

 

(Trump) “is the first major political figure to call for ‘America First’ meaning non-interventionism.  He not only denounces the trillions of dollars spent in wars, deplores the dead and wounded American soldiers, but also speaks of the Iraqi victims of a war launched by a Republican President. He does so to a Republican public and manages to win its support. He denounces the empire of US military bases, claiming to prefer to build schools here in the United States. He wants good relations with Russia. He observes that the militarist policies pursued for decades have caused the United States to be hated throughout the world. He calls Sarkozy a criminal who should be judged for his role in Libya. Another advantage of Trump: he is detested by the neoconservatives, who are the main architects of the present disaster.”

And then there is Stephen F. Cohen, contributing editor for The Nation and Professor Emeritus of Russian History at Princeton and NYU.  Cohen makes the point that Trump, alone among the presidential candidates, has raised five urgent and fundamental questions, which all other candidates in the major parties have either scorned or more frequently ignored. The five questions all call into question the interventionist warlike stance of the US for the past 20 plus years. Cohen enumerates the questions here, thus:

“Should the United States always be the world’s leader and policeman?

 

“What is NATO’s proper mission today, 25 years after the end of the Soviet Union and when international terrorism is the main threat to the West?

 

“Why does Washington repeatedly pursue a policy of regime change, in Iraq, Libya, possibly in Ukraine, and now in Damascus, even though it always ends in “disaster”?

 

“Why is the United States treating Putin’s Russia as an enemy and not as a security partner?

 

“And should US nuclear weapons doctrine include a no-first use pledge, which it does not?”

Cohen comments in detail on these questions here. Whatever one may think of the answers Trump has provided to the five questions, there is no doubt that he alone among the presidential candidates has raised them – and that in itself is an important contribution.

At this point, I mention my own piece, which appeared late last year.  Entitled “Who is the Arch Racist, Hillary or The Donald”?  Like Cohen’s pieces, it finds merit with the Trump foreign policy in the context of posing a question.

Finally, let us turn to Bill Blum, who wrote an article entitled, “American Exceptionalism and the Election Made in Hell (Or Why I’d Vote for Trump Over Hillary).”  Again there is little doubt about the stance of Blum, who is the author of Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II, a scholarly compendium, which Noam Chomsky calls “Far and away the best book on the topic.”

Blum begins his piece:

“If the American presidential election winds up with Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump, and my passport is confiscated, and I’m somehow FORCED to choose one or the other, or I’m PAID to do so, paid well … I would vote for Trump.”

 

“My main concern is foreign policy. American foreign policy is the greatest threat to world peace, prosperity, and the environment. And when it comes to foreign policy, Hillary Clinton is an unholy disaster. From Iraq and Syria to Libya and Honduras the world is a much worse place because of her; so much so that I’d call her a war criminal who should be prosecuted.”

And he concludes:

“He (Trump) calls Iraq ‘a complete disaster’, condemning not only George W. Bush but the neocons who surrounded him. ‘They lied. They said there were weapons of mass destruction and there were none. And they knew there were none. There were no weapons of mass destruction.’ He even questions the idea that ‘Bush kept us safe’, and adds that ‘Whether you like Saddam or not, he used to kill terrorists’.”

“Yes, he’s personally obnoxious. I’d have a very hard time being his friend. Who cares?”

I conclude with Blum’s words because they are most pertinent to our present situation.  The world is living through a perilous time when the likes of the neocons and Hillary Clinton could lead us into a nuclear Armageddon with their belligerence toward Russia and their militaristic confrontation with China.

The reality is that we are faced with a choice between Clinton and Trump, a choice which informs much of the above commentary.  Survival is at stake and we must consider survival first if our judgments are to be sane.
