JEA: Chuck Baldwin was almost certainly a prophet when he said way back in 2017 that Donald Trump was just another Neocon warmonger, though he repeatedly said throughout his campaign that he wanted to bring our troops home.
You cannot bring the troops home when you are conniving with the very person who did not want to bring the troops home. Benjamin Netanyahu was essentially Donald Trump’s boss, and Trump was acting as Netanyahu’s agent. It was just that simple.
“Talk is cheap” is a phrase that politicians teach us constantly. This time the teacher is Donald Trump. Donald Trump campaigned as an outsider, someone that was not owned by the establishment, and someone who would fight the globalists and drain “the swamp.” But “talk is cheap.”
In 2013, AFTER Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was accused of using sarin gas against his own countrymen, Trump tweeted, “What will we get for bombing Syria besides more debt and a possible long term conflict? Obama needs Congressional approval.” (August 29) And, “Obama’s war in Syria has the potential to widen into a worldwide conflict.” (September 5) And, “Forget Syria and make America great again.” (September 11) And, again, “We should . . . stay out of Syria and other countries that hate us, rebuild our own country and make it strong and great again–USA!” (September 12)
Then, after spending months condemning Hillary Clinton for her intentions to escalate U.S. military aggression in the Middle East–especially in Syria–and assuring the American people that if he were elected President he would NOT try to depose Syria’s President Assad or use increased military force in Syria and elsewhere, and stating that he looked forward to building a closer relationship with Russia and Vladimir Putin, it took him exactly 77 days after being inaugurated to launch 59 Tomahawk missiles into, guess where? Syria! And guess what the pretext was for this military attack? You guessed it: Assad used a chemical attack against his own people. What was it that Yogi Berra said?
You must understand: politicians live in this encapsulated, insulated world in which it is absolutely accepted that the American people cannot remember ANYTHING past yesterday’s FOX or CNN newscasts.
For years, I have been trying to get people to understand that the key agenda driving both parties in Washington, D.C., is WAR. Neocons and neolibs are all about WAR. They can argue and wrangle about social and domestic issues as much as they want, but what unites them is WAR. When will the American people come to realize that there is just ONE PARTY in Washington, D.C.: THE WAR PARTY?
It didn’t take long for the icons of the War Party to begin patting Trump on the back for his attack against Syria. War Party potentates who never had a kind word to say about Donald Trump are now praising him for his “brave” decision to bomb Syria. Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Paul Ryan, and the bulk of War Party propagandists in the mainstream media have joined the chorus lauding Trump’s missile attack. For example, MSNBC’s Brian Williams called the attack “beautiful.”
Even Democrats are not immune from the wrath of the War Party. “Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard went on CNN Friday and said she’s not sure Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad was behind the attack. The Iraq War veteran said, ‘I’m skeptical because we have to take at a premium the cost of these wars not only on the Syrian people and the people in the middle east but the cost of these wars here in the United States.’”
No sooner than the words were out of the congresswoman’s mouth, and DNC Chairman Howard Dean fumed, “This is a disgrace. Gabbard should not be in Congress.”
But the gritty Gabbard fired back, “Those who’ve declared Trump a habitual liar now vilify those refusing to blindly follow him into another regime change war. Hypocrisy.”
See the report:
Don’t you see? Republican Party or Democrat Party doesn’t matter; it is the War Party calling the shots.
There is a real correlation here between Donald Trump and Barack Obama. Obama deceived his voting base into believing that he was going to change the Bush war doctrine. He was going to be the “peace” President. But after being elected, Obama ordered ten times more drone attacks than Bush. In 2016 alone, Obama dropped more than 26,000 bombs. He arranged the largest weapons deal in U.S. history to the terrorist regime of Saudi Arabia. And he deployed thousands of U.S. military forces on Russia’s doorstep in Poland. Now, Trump is doing much the same thing.
Donald Trump campaigned on a message of peace and goodwill. But he is governing completely opposite of his campaign rhetoric. He has increased Obama’s military transfers to Saudi Arabia (weapons that are being used to kill thousands of innocent men, women, and children in Yemen). Just last month, Trump carried out more air strikes on Yemen than Obama did in all of 2016. He has increased Obama’s troop strength on Russia’s border. He has sent thousands of troops (including U.S. Special Forces, Marines, and the 82nd Airborne) into Middle Eastern countries–not to mention a massive show of naval power in the Sea of Japan. And now, he has launched a missile attack against Syria.
Acclaimed American journalist Glenn Greenwald wrote, “In the last two months, Trump has ordered a commando raid in Yemen that has massacred children and dozens of innocent people, bombed Mosul and killed scores of civilians, and bombed a mosque near Aleppo that killed dozens.” And that was BEFORE launching missiles against Syria, of course.
Perhaps the best analysis of Trump’s Syrian missile attack that I’ve seen is provided by “The Saker”:
I don’t think that anybody seriously believes that Assad or anybody else in the Syrian government really ordered a chemical weapons attack on anybody. To believe that it would require you to find the following sequence logical: first, Assad pretty much wins the war against Daesh which is in full retreat. Then, the US declares that overthrowing Assad is not a priority anymore (up to here this is all factual and true). Then, Assad decides to use weapons he does not have. He decides to bomb a location with no military value, but with lots of kids and cameras. Then, when the Russians demand a full investigation, the Americans strike as fast as they can before this idea gets any support. And now the Americans are probing a possible Russian role in this so-called attack. Frankly, if you believe any of that, you should immediately stop reading and go back to watching TV. For the rest of us, there are three options:
- a classical US-executed false flag.
2. a Syrian strike on a location which happened to be storing some kind of gas, possibly chlorine, but most definitely not sarin. This option requires you to believe in coincidences. I don’t. Unless,
3. the US fed bad intelligence to the Syrians and got them to bomb a location where the US knew that toxic gas was stored.
What is evident is that the Syrians did not drop chemical weapons from their aircraft and that no chemical gas was ever stored at the al-Shayrat airbase. There is no footage showing any munitions or containers which would have delivered the toxic gas. As for US and other radar recordings, all they can show is that an aircraft was in the sky, its heading, altitude and speed. There is no way to distinguish a chemical munition or a chemical attack by means of radar.
Whatever option you chose, the Syrian government is obviously and self-evidently innocent of the accusation of having used chemical weapons.
See the report here:
And we cannot ignore the fact that Donald Trump’s attack on Syria violated international law, the U.S. Constitution, and, most importantly, the Natural Law of God. To again quote “The Saker”:
The US attack happened in direct violation of US law, of international law and of the UN charter. First, I would say that there is strong legal evidence that the US attack violated the US Constitution, Presidential War Powers Act and the 2001 Authorization of Military Force (AUMF) resolution. But since I don’t really care about this aspect of Trump’s criminal behavior, I will . . . just simply summarize the argument of those who say that what Trump did was legal. It boils down to this: “yeah, it’s illegal, but all US Presidents have been doing it for so long that they have thereby created a legal precedent which, uh, makes it legal after all”. I don’t think this kind of “defense” is worthy of a reply or rebuttal. So now let’s turn to international law.
Most people think that crimes against humanity or genocide must be the ultimate crime under international law. They are wrong. The ultimate crime is aggression. This is the conclusion of the Nuremberg Trial on this topic:
To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.
I have no idea who “The Saker” is, but he is the only person, other than myself, that I have read who publicly acknowledges that “The Crime of Aggression” is the most serious crime any nation can commit. I reached that conclusion through my study of Natural and Revealed Law. I am guessing “The Saker” came to that conclusion via other studies, but I am proud as a peacock that he had the heart and mind to understand and speak it.
I have a DVD on this topic. It’s called “The Crime Of Aggression: Condemned By The Law Of Nature And Nature’s God.” Find it here:
In my mind, it is no coincidence that Trump has suddenly decided to join the War Party. After Trump betrayed General Michael Flynn and…
