ELDER PATRIOT – From the outset of his candidacy Donald Trump has challenged the establishment with his advanced strategic thinking that struck at the heart of traditional ideologies. The decaying nations of NATO that appear intent on destroying themselves were aghast when Trump questioned the validity of letting them drag us into yet a third world war. Members of America’s political ruling class, equally entrenched in the stagnancy of post WWII thinking denounced Trump as a geopolitical threat courting a new world war.
Trump correctly realized the threat of a world war was greater from contorting our Founding Principles to maintain old alliances with countries that no longer shared our national interests.
To this end Trump’s desire to explore forming a strategic alliance with Russia was dismissed as a combination of naiveté and treason by those wanting to keep the American people mired in relationships that were failing the American people but advancing a regressive new world order.
Trump views an alliance with Russia as natural for two countries intent on maintaining their independence from the emerging global government especially since both share a commitment to destroy the radical Islamic movement. Establishment Democrats and Republicans viewed Trump as undoing the “progress” they’d made in advancing global governance.
The establishment was so threatened by Trump’s desire to establish alliances that recognize the realities of this century and dismiss those of the last century that no longer represent our interests that they rolled out their propaganda team at the CIA to plant the notion that Americans would not have elected Trump had the dastardly Russians not hacked our elections.
The charges, meant to impugn both Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin were not true. Former CIA spy Robert Steele has studied the evidence and concluded that the CIA lied about any Russian hacking going so far as to call for the impeachment of President Obama, CIA Director John Brennan, and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for “lying to the public on a matter of great importance.”
Steele bases his assertion on 38 years of experience working in the intelligence gathering industry – 18 years for the CIA. He writes, “To hack means to gain unauthorized access. Generally state actors who gain unauthorized access seek to conceal the fact of their access; they do not leak information because it reveals their success.
FBI Director James Comey confirmed this fact when he announced his decision not to recommend indicting Hillary Clinton. Comey stated, “With respect to potential computer intrusion by hostile actors, we did not find direct evidence that Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail domain, in its various configurations since 2009, was successfully hacked. But, given the nature of the system and of the actors potentially involved, we assess that we would be unlikely to see such direct evidence.”
Despite the efforts by Democrats as well as members of his own party to denigrate his foreign policy bona fides it’s become obvious that the existing international order is failing not only America’s citizens but, all of the once free nations of the world.
Now that Trump has challenged our conventional relationships, others are warming to the wisdom of his genius.
No less than the dean of international relations and the most respected analyst of U.S. foreign policy in the world Henry Kissinger recently said, “I believe he [Trump] has the possibility of going down in history as a very considerable president” because of the power vacuum left by Obama’s feckless policies that diminished us on the world stage.
“Here is a new president who is asking a lot of unfamiliar questions, and because of the combination of the partial vacuum and the new questions, one could imagine that something remarkable and new emerges out of it,” Mr. Kissinger said.
As the nations of Europe surrender to their Islamic invaders it’s time to ask if it’s smarter to seek a workable alliance with Russia or to find our selves increasingly isolated by continuing the same policies of today?
