The new foreign policy

Mike Whitney points out the radical transformation of foreign policy that Donald Trump intends to pursue, and observes that it is the basis for the Deep State's opposition to him:
Donald Trump wants to fundamentally change U.S. foreign policy. The President-elect wants to abandon the destabilizing wars and regime change operations that have characterized US policy in the past and work collaboratively with countries like Russia that have a mutual interest in fighting terrorism and establishing regional security. Here’s an excerpt from the speech Trump delivered in Cincinnati on December 1, that presents Trump’s views on the topic:

“We will pursue a new foreign policy that finally learns from the mistakes of the past…We will stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments…. Our goal is stability not chaos, because we want to rebuild our country [the United States]… We will partner with any nation that is willing to join us in the effort to defeat ISIS and radical Islamic terrorism …In our dealings with other countries, we will seek shared interests wherever possible and pursue a new era of peace, understanding, and good will.”

Trump’s approach to foreign policy may seem commendable given the disastrous results in Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and Iraq, but it is also a dramatic departure from the last 70 years of activity during which time the United States has either overthrown or attempted to overthrow 57 foreign governments. (According to author William Blum) This is why the political class and their wealthy constituents are so worried about Trump, it’s because they don’t want the new president mucking-around in a process he doesn’t understand, a process that has reshaped the world in a way that clearly benefits US mega-corporations while reinforcing Washington’s iron grip on global power. The bottom line is that “violence works” and any deviation from the present policy represents a direct threat to the people whose continued power and prosperity depend on that violence.

This is why none of the major media published Trump’s comments. The corporate bosses who own the media have nothing to gain by promoting the views of a populist executive who wants to minimize the carnage by working cooperatively with foreign leaders the media has already designated as ‘enemies of the state’, like Vladimir Putin. How does that advance the media’s agenda?

It doesn’t, which is why they’d rather the public remain in the dark about what Trump actually said.

But the Washington power-elite know what Trump said, and they have acted accordingly. They have put together a plan that is designed to undermine Trump’s credibility, back him into a corner and remove him from office. That’s the plan, regime change in the USA.
This is why it is vital to continue to support the God-Emperor Ascendant, because he is going to need to draw heavily upon his connection to the power of the people in order to thwart the Deep State and their media allies.

And if they are so foolish as to continue to mutter dark threats to his person, well, Bush and Obama have combined to give the God-Emperor Ascendant a rather conclusive means of dealing with any troublesome U.S. citizens who pose a threat to the President.

It should be interesting flushing the Deep State out. I wonder how many past events of the 20th century will become more clear?

Yep, they stocked a room full of nigh-omniscient digital spies, automated killing machines, dictator-empowering law books and psychological torture equipment.

Those tools will be put to use.

I don't see any evidence that Trump doesn't understand mercantilism.

It's not like the US invented it in 1945.

Perhaps this is true when talking of a Nation, but not when that violence is also internal. Current foreign policy weakens America because of free trade and all it entails. Nations first, trade second.

Siphoning off astronomical wealth & power from the shadow of Juggernaut USA was very nice for those in the upper echelons of the Dulles Brothers' demon spawn, the CIA, and all of those who figured out how to serve it or play remora.

This timing is notable; the Progressivist delusion that normalized queers, then open estrangement from fact (trannies) and tried for pedos also underlies the mass delusion of the debt bubble on which Uncle Sam rides.

Pop one, pop all. As this worm turns, the sociopaths of the Deep State feel the first cold wind of their looming Ice Age.

The coming war won't have any bystanders.

We certainly live in interesting times. As you say, recent Presidents have established lots fascinating traditions.

For a less bloody example than executing American citizens without due process, recall that Jimmy Carter established the precedent - by abrogating our treaty with Taiwan in 1977 - that the POTUS can nullify a treaty all by his lonesome.

NAFTA, WTO, and NATO lovers take note

The Deep State, pre-inauguration, has attempted a foreign policy coup d'état. Thus far it hasn't worked and the question is whether they will attempt a personnel coup in the form of assassination. It surely has been discussed and likely fear of their things burning down and blowing up has put murder on the backburner.

Open borders, de-industrialization, and perpetual war have become the Deep State's replacement religion. They will torch heretics until the boot is against their throats. Let's hope President Trump declassifies the voluminous lies that have led the United States to the brink, if only as an insurance policy. Dismantling their propaganda organs has benefitted him immensely, and discrediting the military/security complex will given Trump the ammunition he needs to slay this Beast.

I find it kind of ironic that the dirt bags of the Left are now defenders of the American Empire of Chaos and Death & Destruction.

To me that is a millstone that needs to be placed about their necks, the neocons' necks and the patriotards who if they don't pull their heads out of their asses can join them at the bottom. ("Murka we're kickin butt")

How about this for a foreign policy:

"We're gonna leave everyone alone."

We could call it, "The Trump Doctrine." It'll be the guiding principle for the 21st century.

The thing I appreciate about Trump is this - no apologies for America First. So, I've got a real desire to see what his first executive orders will be.

No wars, increasing employment and wages, increasing interest rates, direct communication with the public. The lines could not be more clearly drawn. It will be workers, savers, soldiers vs. banksters, warmongers, the media and their paid rabble of the lumpenproletariat.

Can you imagine changing relations with Russia so that they actually help us with our trouble spots? Russia has no loyalty to North Korea. If both the US and Russia cranked up the pressure on China to take care of their retarded cousin the North Korea problem goes away without a shot fired.

Russian and US forces cooperating on eradicating ISIS and similar Jihadi organizations? Unheard of under old administrations but supremely beneficial to both countries.

The US benefits particularly because the Russians are not held back by bleeding hearts in their own populations. The Russians will do what needs to be done and will likely be satisfied with us just providing material support and logistics to their operations.

Notice how these think tank "movers and shakers" are big proponents of decentralization - when it comes to other countries. However, when it comes to the US its all about preserving the United State.
The best thing that could happen for this country would be for it to break apart. Im sure, that is the elites plan - once every other country has been broken up. At that point they will implement their dream of a One world govt. It would be awesome if the US breaks apart before their mission is complete. It would deprive these cockroaches of a base camp for their world conquest.

Isn't there precedent for the president to selectively enforce whatever laws he wants, and ignore whichever he doesn't want? I don't like it, but now that the precedent exists, let's put it to work.

The left have never been about dismantling power or challenging authority. IOW, they've never been liberals in the classic sense of that term.

Their beef has always been that power was in the wrong hands and authority vested in the wrong people. Their entire messianic delusion is that when they rule absolutely, mankind will be free. When the right kind of people have abrogated all power and authority unto themselves, we will all ride rainbow unicorns into the sparklepony sunset.

The reason they convince other people is that they have first lied to themselves about their own nature.
