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.
