In a month filled with bad news, might as well start off with the most depressing stuff – the likelihood of World War III continues to grow thanks to the neo-conservative madmen in control of the Republicrats. What’s amazing is that Paul Craig Roberts and a few other experts are the only ones trying to sound the alarm to an ignorant American population entranced by the fake narratives of the deep state-controlled mass media. Warns Roberts: “In George Orwell’s dystopian novel, ‘1984,’ information that no longer is consistent with Big Brother’s explanations is chucked down the Memory Hole. In the real American dystopia in which we currently live, the information is never reported at all. On April 26, Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznihir, Deputy Chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the Russian Armed Forces, stated at the Moscow International Security Conference that the Operations Command of the Russian General Staff has concluded that Washington is preparing a nuclear first strike on Russia. . . The Times-Gazette in Ashland, Ohio, was the only U.S. print media that a Google search could turn up that reported this most alarming of all announcements. A Google search turned up no reports on U.S. TV, and none on Canadian, Australian, European, or any other media except Russia Today and Internet sites. I have been unable to find any report that any U.S. Senator or Representative or any European, Canadian, or Australian politician has raised a voice of concern. No one in Washington got on the telephone to tell Putin that this was all a mistake, that the U.S. was not preparing a nuclear first strike on Russia, or ask Putin how this serious situation could be defused. Americans do not even know about it, except for my readers. I would have expected at least that the CIA would have planted the story in The Washington Post, The New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, and NPR that General Poznihir was expressing his personal opinion, nothing to be taken seriously. But apparently Americans and their European vassals are not to even know that such an accusation was made. As I reported some time ago and more recently in my column about North Korea, the Chinese leadership has also concluded that the U.S. intends a nuclear first strike against China. Alone either Russia or China can destroy the U.S. If they act together, the destruction of the U.S. would be redundant. What is the intelligence, if any, and morality, clearly none, of the U.S. leadership that recklessly and irresponsibly invites Russia and China to pre-empt Washington’s attack on them with an attack on the U.S? I lived through every stage of the Cold War. I participated in it. Never in my life have I experienced the situation where two nuclear powers were convinced that the third was going to surprise them with a nuclear attack. I supported Trump because he, unlike Hillary, said he would normalize relations with Russia. Instead he has raised the tensions between the nuclear powers. Nothing is more irresponsible or dangerous.” . . . . . . . . . . . Another rare source of important information on the true nature of U.S. foreign policy is by a man going by the internet name of “The Saker,” a U.S. military analyst living in Florida. He provides long articles on current geo-political tensions, as opposed to the fairy tales of the CIA-fed fake news media. Those who want a detailed appraisal of U.S. strategy and objectives vis a vis Russia and China should read articles such as “Making Sense of the ‘Super Fuse’ Scare” (http://www.unz.com/tsaker/making-sense-of-the-super-fuse-scare/), in which The Saker explains why a U.S. Dr. Strangelove-like first strike on Russia and China won’t succeed and then concludes: “The real danger to our planet comes not from a sudden technological breakthrough which would make nuclear war safe, but from the demented filled minds of the U.S. neo-cons who believe that they can bring Russia to heel in a game of ‘nuclear chicken.’ These neo-cons have apparently convinced themselves that making conventional threats against Russia, such as unilaterally imposing no-fly zones over Syria, does not bring us closer to a nuclear confrontation. It does. The neo-cons love to bash the United Nations in general, and the veto power of the Permanent Five (P5) at the UN Security Council, but they apparently forgot the reason why this veto power was created in the first place: to outlaw any action which could trigger a nuclear war. Of course, this assumes that the P5 all care about international law. Now that the USA has clearly become a rogue state whose contempt for international law is total, there is no legal mechanism left to stop the U.S. from committing actions which endanger the future of mankind. This is what is really scary, not ‘super-fuses.’ What we are facing today is a nuclear rogue state run by demented individuals who, steeped in a culture of racial superiority, total impunity and imperial hubris, are constantly trying to bring us closer to a nuclear war. These people are not constrained by anything, not morals, not international law, not even common sense or basic logic. In truth, we are dealing with a messianic cult every bit as insane as the one of Jim Jones or Adolf Hitler and like all self-worshiping crazies they profoundly believe in their invulnerability. It is the immense sin of the so-called ‘Western world’ that it let these demented individuals take control with little or no resistance and that now almost the entire Western society lacks the courage to even admit that it surrendered itself to what I can only call a satanic cult.’ . . . . . . . . . . Perhaps the most idiotic – and telling – oxymoron uttered thus far in the Orwellian 21st century was President Trump’s declaration that “I’m a nationalist and I’m a globalist.” This from the man who promised over and over again that his presidency would reject globalism and promote America First. Of course such Olympian flip-flops have sadly become routine for President Snake Oil. Here’s a few beauties: Candidate Trump repeatedly promised to label China a “currency manipulator.” President Snake Oil now says, “They’re not currency manipulators.” Candidate Trump bashed the Federal Reserve and Janet Yellen (“She should be ashamed of herself”). President Snake Oil: “I like [Janet Yellen], I respect her.” Candidate Trump vowed to improve relations with Russia. President Snake Oil: U.S.-Russian relations “may be at an all-time low.” . . . . . . . . The website Zero Hedge.com headlined a story “Trump Flips on Five Core Campaign Promises in Under 24 Hours,” writing: “Blink, and you missed Trump’s blistering, seamless transformation into a mainstream politician.” Those sudden reversals were on economic and social issues, but Trump’s transformation from favoring armed neutrality in foreign policy into a warmongering neo-con is even more dramatic. Commentator Doug Bandow, who has long advocated a sane U.S. foreign policy that reflects the country’s pre-imperial empire stance, recently asked, “Do Any of Candidate Trump’s Foreign Policy Promises Still Stand?” Writes Bandow: “Now he tells us. President Donald Trump admits that he said NATO was obsolete because, well, he didn’t know anything about the transatlantic alliance. So apparently his campaign comments now are inoperative. If he had to do it all over again, he’d probably sound a lot like, well, Hillary Clinton. When he was asked about the issue on CNN, he admitted, he deemed the organization obsolete ‘not knowing much about NATO, now I know a lot about NATO.’ He argued that his ignorance was understandable ‘because I wasn’t in government. People don’t go around asking about NATO if I’m building a building in Manhattan, right?’ Right, but then, you don’t build a building in Manhattan if you don’t know anything about building a building. You learn about the process before you start. For the same reason, if you run for president, you expect to be asked about NATO, so you learn something about NATO. That’s what campaign advisers are for. That’s why candidates invite experts in for briefings. Except, apparently, candidate Trump. But now he just loves the alliance. It turns out it isn’t ‘obsolete,’ even though the United States continues to defend a group of countries with a larger economy and population than America, and vastly greater resources than Russia, Europe’s only conceivable adversary. So much for challenging the status quo. President Trump has become the status quo. Not that this is the only issue on which the president was, shall we say, unprepared. During the campaign, he claimed that China controlled North Korea. If only President Xi Jinping raised his pinky finger, candidate Trump seemed to suggest, then North Korea would dance as instructed. Trump was not the only official so misinformed. Sen. John McCain, whose first reaction to any foreign problem is to send in the bombers, made much the same claim. Indeed, he admitted to being puzzled that the Chinese didn’t rush to do Washington’s bidding. Apparently it never occurred to him that Beijing might have its own set of interests. . . The president appeared to be similarly ignorant about Syria, apparently not realizing that people die, often in terrible ways, in civil wars. Indeed, some four hundred thousand people on all sides, including noncombatants, are thought to have perished since 2011. This apparently escaped the attention of the candidate and his advisers, experts and briefers, if any existed. Nor, it seems, had anyone in the federal government gotten him up to speed as president. Only when he saw the ‘horrible’ photos of those who died in a chemical attack — a few score compared to the hundreds of thousands killed so far — was he moved to do something. Not that the solitary strike will save lives, reduce human hardship or, above all, make America more secure.” . . . . . . . . . . . After Trump’s bombing of Syria, the leading fake news organs suddenly and predictably did an immediate about-face, praising the man they had heretofore relentlessly criticized. The New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and New York Daily News ran 18 op-eds and “news analysis” articles right after the attack, and all 18 praised it. Even radical left MSNBC “had on a seemingly never-ending string of military brass and reporters,” according to Adam Johnson writing for fair.org. The New York Times intoned that Trump might yet “change the perception of disarray” in his presidency. Fareed Zakaria, the Indian-American globalist lackey who hosts a show on CNN and who previously had repeatedly sworn live on air when talking about Trump, gushed, “I think Donald Trump became the President of the United States,” while Lyin’ Brian Williams raved about the strike on MSNBC, calling video of the attacks “beautiful” and adding, “I’m guided by the beauty of our weapons.” . . . . . . . . . . . While the fake news media will always be anti-Trump to some degree, because he isn’t a liberal Democrat and because he excelled at insulting so many of them, he’s being treated much better than before. And the rest of the George Soros-inspired “color revolution” against Trump seems to also have been called off for now, with the disappearance of the anti-Trump demonstrations by the street scum once Trump bowed the knee and pleased the neo-cons, leaving the alt-right and alt-right speakers to take on the communists at Berkley, Auburn, New Orleans and other places (more on that below). . . . . . . . . . . . . A very important story on Trump and the corporate media was written by Ben Schreckinger and Hadas Gold for Politico magazine and its website, politico.com. Keep in mind that Politico is pro-establishment, not an alternative media outlet, when reading the following excerpts from “Trump’s Fake War on the Fake News”: “Seven days before Donald Trump took office, the inauguration festivities got off to a low-key start inside a modest conference room at the Capitol Hill offices of the American Trucking Associations. There, a hundred-odd familiar faces from the Washington set gathered to fête one of their own, incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer. The party spilled out into the hallway as entrepreneur Susanna Quinn, ubiquitous Republican consultant Ron Bonjean and Spicer’s wife, Rebecca, a staffer at the National Beer Wholesalers Association, rubbed shoulders with CBS’ White House correspondent Major Garrett and its political editor Steve Chaggaris, Time’s Zeke Miller and several journalists from CNN, including Washington bureau chief Sam Feist. Spicer arrived late, but in good spirits, and after 20 minutes of schmoozing he strode to the front of the room to deliver brief remarks. In public, Trump’s team and the press had been engaged in bitter clashes for months. Just two days earlier, during a contentious transition-team news conference, Spicer had threatened to eject CNN’s Jim Acosta from Trump Tower. But in the end, ratings were up and Trump was president-elect. The overlit conference room was a safe space, not a war zone. Spicer made light of the Acosta incident, jokingly threatening to eject Feist from the room. Feist took Spicer’s teasing in stride, briefly turning as if to make for the exit, and the room laughed along. . . On the campaign trail, Trump called the press ‘dishonest’ and ‘scum.’ . . Since taking office, he has dismissed unfavorable coverage as ‘fake news’ and described the mainstream media as ‘the enemy of the American people.’ And there’s been a string of symbolic, almost gratuitous little slaps: He not only rejected the traditional invitation to the White House Correspondents Association dinner, but announced the Saturday beforehand that he’d be holding a rally the same night, meaning some reporters will have to skip their own professional event to cover his. Not since Richard Nixon has an American president been so hostile to the press — and Nixon largely limited his rants against the media to private venting with his aides. But behind that theatrical assault, the Trump White House has turned into a kind of playground for the press. We interviewed more than three dozen members of the White House press corps, along with White House staff and outside allies, about the first whirlwind weeks of Trump’s presidency. Rather than a historically toxic relationship, they described a historic gap between the public perception and the private reality. When he is not fulminating on stage or on Twitter, the president himself has mustered a number of cordial interactions with reporters since taking office, often showing them more courtesy than he grants his own staff. When White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is not labeling the media ‘the opposition party,’ he can be found sending crush notes to journalists to let them know they’ve nailed a story. And when Spicer is not popping off from his podium, he is often busy maintaining old relationships with journalists and building new ones. . . The great secret of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is that Trump’s war on the media is a phony one, a reality show that keeps his supporters fired up and distracted while he woos the constituency that really matters to him: journalists.” . . . . . . . . . . . . Trump also continues to backtrack on the main issue that won him the presidency – immigration. Not only is he not going to go after the huge illegal population in the U.S. except perhaps the worst of the criminal element, he’s even backed off on the “Dreamers,” the young illegals brought to America as children. Just as he described the dead Syrian babies of an alleged gas attack as “beautiful” even as the U.S. continues to kill civilians of all ages in at least seven undeclared wars and likely more secret ones, the newly minted bleeding heart liberal Trump declared that Dreamers can “rest easy,” because “this is a case of the heart,” once again sounding no different than Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. . . . . . . . . . . Ann Corcoran reports that “large numbers” of Somali refugees are being relocated from Arizona to Minnesota. Why move from the hot climate of Arizona, which is much like that of Somalia, to the coldest of the contiguous 48 states? Minnesota has already been flooded with more Somalis than any other state; perhaps the goal is to make them a very large minority group in a state that is still one of the whiter ones. . . . . . . . . Vice President Mike Pence held a joint news conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in which he announced that the U.S. would honor the refugee deal with Australia negotiated by the Obama administration and which President Trump had previously famously called “dumb.” “We will honor this deal out of respect to this enormously important alliance,” chirped Pence, as if the U.S.-Australian alliance would have collapsed if the deal had been rejected by Trump. So now, some 1,250 “asylum seekers” that even Australia didn’t want will be dumped on American taxpayers. . . . . . . . . . At least ALIPAC (American for Legal Immigration PAC) announced that it was withdrawing its former endorsement of Trump in lieu of his many betrayed campaign promises on immigration. . . . . . . . . . . Of Trump’s disgusting betrayal on Obama’s “Dreamers,” Walter Jackson for the website altright.com writes in “Trump’s DREAMers Will Be His Downfall”: “Up to two million, mostly non-White illegal immigrants have now earned permanent residency in the United States. I say permanent because if Trump gets a second term he won’t deport them then either, and when he is succeeded by a Democrat (who will have electorally benefited from his inaction on the problem of Democrat-producing immigration), he or she will not deport the aging trespassers either. All Trump had to do to stop the creation of up to two million more non-White Democrats in the medium-term and millions more in the long-term was to cancel Obama’s executive order. Obama’s ‘unconstitutional’ orders were something Trump had promised to dispose of during his campaign. Now he’s not going to, literally because he feels sympathy for the language of ‘DREAMers’ and ‘childhood arrivals.’ The Trump presidency is quickly becoming a farce. Americans did not vote for George Bush, John McCain, or Mitt Romney when they voted for Donald Trump. They voted for a nationalist and populist platform of America First. Yet here we have a president who will refuse to deport illegal immigrants for the arbitrary reason that they arrived here as minors, a policy which benefits liberals and immigrants rather than nationalists and populists. One of the biggest no-brainer ways to help reverse White demographic decline, which will end the Republican Party and ultimately the United States as we know it, is to deport people who have no legal right to be in this country. If our Republican president cannot even carry out the most basic form of political self-preservation, how can we expect his decisions on anything else to be sound? Why is he authorizing the artificial growth of the opposition party? . . . If both elected and appointed Republicans tacitly agree to amnesty for transplanted, foreign, non-White Democrats, they are effectively committing ideological suicide. The American Dream isn’t about replacing yourself with sassy brown people who talk about smashing ‘White supremacy.’ Or is it? If we keep treating politics like it isn’t about identity, we aren’t going to be around much longer. Whatever happened to Ronald Reagan’s home state? Why can’t Republicans win there anymore? Think of it this way: how many DREAMers would it take to flip Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida? Trump and his heirs in the Republican Party are going to find out.” . . . . . . . . . . . Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, Trump’s National Security Advisor and a neo-con fanatic, has ties to – surprise, surprise – George Soros, Jared Kushner’s good friend and financier. McMaster used to be affiliated with the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), a British-based think tank with strong establishment ties and which was credited by former U.S. ambassador Leonard Garthoff as being a driving force in creating “intellectual structures for managing the Cold War,” the 40-year long financial bonanza for the military-industrial complex and which has now been revived for the same purposes. IISS received funding from a who’s who of corporations (such as Lockheed Martin and Northrup Grumman), and mostly Middle Eastern governments (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey and China), and also from two of Soros’ front groups, the Ploughshares Fund and the notorious Open Society Foundation. A president interested in “draining the swamp” should start with McMaster. . . . . . . . . . . . . When White House press secretary Sean Spicer came under instant fire for saying that Adolf Hitler didn’t use poison gas “on his own people” by implying that Syrian president Bashar al-Assad was even worse than Hitler by allegedly using poison gas, Spicer called super-Zionist billionaire Sheldon Adelson to apologize, according to the Jewish media outlet The Forward. According to the article in the Forward, an Adelson spokesman confirmed the call from Spicer “but did not explain the reason behind it.” However, the next paragraph of the article makes it clear why Adelson was called: “Adelson is a major donor to conservative and Jewish causes. He is not the leader of any major Jewish organization. He does, however, have a special relationship with President Donald Trump: He got a prime seat at Trump’s inauguration after pouring massive amounts of cash into the campaign.”
