Responses to my post on Trump's reversal? of Obama's bloody policie


Several  people have registered confusion regarding my last post and at least two have explicitly asked if I'm a fan of Trump.
People are confused since most readers understand  that I've long been a progressive, a Democrat, a liberal, etc.
I voted for Jill  Stein hoping Clinton would win despite everything I believe about her.

But we live in strange times.
No I don't support Trump.
As I wrote,  we have probably not ever seen anyone so unprepared and so unqualified to be president as Donald Trump.

Nor do I think Trump actually won -- and certainly not fair and square.
As  the unadjusted exit polls suggest, Clinton won the electoral college as well as the popular vote.
 I believe that  critical vote totals were reversed by  computer fraud -- never mind, in addition the massive voter suppression, etc.

 I think the same organized computer manipulation of the vote totals is what changed in the outcome in 2000 and 2004. 

In a previous post I mentioned that Karl Rove was caught out on national TV revealing that he intended the same thing in 2012. (Not to mention the dozens of such instances changing the outcomes in state-wide elections going back at least to the late 90s.)

At the same time there is room for nuance.
Trump's "victory"  has already had some major benefits; namely burying the political career of the most criminal and most corrupt candidate of just about anyone who has ever been U.S. president.

Trump  has also, for the moment at least, taken the TPP, the corporate giveaway pushed by Obama, off the table.
And also, before he takes office, he has called out the CIA for the liars and manipulators that they are and have been since WWII.

My intention was to post a message before Trump takes office when there is still hope that he will actually make a dent in the fake news and powerful propaganda --- especially the anti-Putin propaganda  -- emanating from the White House, from the Democratic Party, the CIA and the mainstream media.

A tiny  example of how I view the Orwellian world in which we are living --- vide  the JFK assassination and 9/11 --  is the  New York Times Quotation of the Day" for 1.12.17, quoting Donald Trump.

"If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability, because we have a horrible relationship with Russia."

I can only guess that the Times highlighted that quote hoping to further smear Trump's reputation  by associating him with U.S. enemy number one!

But Trump is right!. Our relationship with Russia is horrible, exactly as President Obama and the CIA intended..
As I indicated, at the end of my post, I don’t think the chances are good that Trump will actually change policy.
If nothing else, the forces against him are too strong and Mike Pence is waiting in the wings to take over.
But days before he takes office, we can still hope.

Will Trump reverse Obama's bloody CIA Middle East and European Destabilizaiton?

We still have a week or so  before the inauguration to hope that the most unqualified person to become president will actually change U.S. Middle East/Anti Soviet policy by rejecting the sixteen years of CIA/White House policy.  

See below for some of the details regarding Obama's parting shot: punishing Syria and the Assad regime by cutting off utilities, water, gas, electricity to millions of people in  government-held areas. Presumably he ordered such punitive actions against the Syrian people out of revenge for the success of Assad's forces (with crucial Russian and Iranian and other help) in ridding Aleppo of Jihadist control.

I believe that Obama has been using the Moslem Brotherhood -- who are still active -- and all the brutal jihadis like ISIS, al-Qaeda al-Shams and others who want to overthrow secular rule in Syria as they have done in Iraq and Afghanistan -- as pawns to wage perpetual war against Syria. By tactically limiting their weapons supply, Obama revealed that  he doesn't actually want regime change, in part, because it would expose the chaotic, and brutal aftermath, as in Libya. Together with Israel he just wants continued and endless destabilization and destruction. He's succeeded in keeping the war going for more than five years.

Had Clinton won there would have been less chance of a change in the status quo. .

Here's the opening sentences from an email sent by one  Feroze Mithiborwala....

I still cant believe that there are people out there who are
supporting the Imperial-Zionist-Political Islamist agenda.
That there are people out there who are tacitly, rather openly
supporting the ISIS-Qaeda-Nusra-Ahrar al Sham agenda of converting
Syria into an Islamic theocracy.
Here Feroze  might have mentioned Amy Goodman's Democracy Now (DN) as one of those supporting Obama's destructive agenda. It would be instructive to understand what forces are operating to keep DN in the jihadist camp. I noticed,  though, on at least two occasions,  that Amy's co-producer, Nermeen Shaikh, had the temerity to raise the question of whether or not attacks on civilians were also perpetrated by the  "rebels."

We’ll soon see if Trump continues President Obama's destructive and ruthless CIA  policy. We still don't know what Trump knows. Does he know for example that Zionists are cheering on  Obama's bloody eight year program of destroying the Middle East?: If Trump actually intends to attack ISIS,  then those like the Zionists, hawks, and the CIA will be unhappy. And if Trump  actually changes policy, the pressure to remove him in favor of Pence will only grow. The prospects for positive change aren't rosy.

Here's an opening paragraphs from Bernhard's January 9, 2017 blog.



Currently a campaign is waged by the Takfiri [jihadi] forces opposing the Syrian government and by the U.S. to deprive the people under its protection of all public utilities - water, gas and electricity. After the start of the current blocking of the water supplies to Damascus and its 5-6 million inhabitants we noted:   This shut down is part of a wider, seemingly coordinated strategy to deprive all government held areas of utility supplies. Two days ago the Islamic State shut down a major water intake for Aleppo from the Euphrates. High voltage electricity masts on lines feeding Damascus have been destroyed and repair teams, unlike before, denied access. Gas supplies to parts of Damascus are also cut.
