Region: Asia, USA
Theme: GLOBAL RESEARCH NEWS HOUR, US NATO War Agenda
In-depth Report: U.S. Elections
“You have to go back to Nixon to find a president with as strong negative views about the agency. But the agency did not get this kind of public disparagement from Nixon.”
– Paul Pillar, a former senior CIA official, in an interview with AlterNet. 
– Team Trump stole the swing states through minority voter suppression and faith based voting machines
– why did the Deep State let them steal the election? probably because the next economic contraction is looming due in part to passing peak energy and Trump will get the blame and impose austerity and repression.
– Fracking for oil and gas has peaked due to debt and depletion. Trump’s promise to revive the coal industry is physically impossible, since coal peaked in the US in 1999 (in Pennsylvania, coal peaked in 1920).
– the appointment of the CEO of Exxon Mobil to the State Department is a clue about the role of grabbing global oil supplies for the Empire www.oilempire.us/new-map.html
– Cheney and Rumsfeld wanted to attack Iran a decade ago, part of the military and intelligence agencies blocked this because it would have massively worsened the Middle East wars and disrupt the oil supplies
– Trump’s cabinet: “crazy people who understand we’re entering the downslope of energy supplies and it’s a mad scramble to grab what is left”
– Kremlinology: the US intelligence agencies tried to figure out decision making in the Soviet Union, their system was opaque, we need a similar approach to understand the National Security State of America, it’s like looking at a distant mountain on a rainy day, you can tell it is there but cannot describe it precisely
– Bush the Lesser was unpopular in his first few months, once 9/11 was allowed to happen his ratings went from the 40s percentage to 90 percent. Let’s hope the people behind Trump are not similarly tempted to boost his popularity.
– suggestions: chip through the frozen layer of denial over these problems, honest discussions about election fraud, limits to growth as the underlying factor in the economic crisis, transcend “Peak Blame” and scapegoating, recognize there are many flavors of disinformation (from right and left) that distract from clarity.
– the antidote would include moving beyond binary modes of thinking, the false choice of Trump vs. Clinton (neither is acceptable), practical relocalization logistics instead of politics are more important as the global economy breaks down. Where does your food come from? How can communities be more cooperative and resilient?
will Trump be the fifth President thwarted by the intelligence agencies?
1. Kennedy – removed from office for trying to end the Cold War www.jfkmoon.org
2. Nixon – www.oilempire.us/watergate.html
3. Carter – www.oilempire.us/october-surprise.html
4. Bush / Cheney – prevented from attacking Iran – www.oilempire.us/beyond-bush.html www.oilempire.us/november-surprise.html www.oilempire.us/zbig.html
Donald Trump has finally taken his oath of office and assumed the role of President of theUnited States of America.
His inauguration on Friday, January 20th coincided with numerous protests both in Washington and in cities across the US and around the world.
Trump’s rise to power and his cabinet picks have provoked numerous questions. Will he indeed build a wall between Mexico and the US? Will he register Muslims? What will become of the Free trade agreements like NAFTA which he has vowed to scrap or renegotiate? If he is mending relations with Russia, what will that mean for current hot-spots Syria and Ukraine, and for foreign policy generally?
On this week’s Global Research News Hour we take a look behind the scenes to determine how political events such as the recent election, are being manipulated to achieve elite ends, and the consequences for US democracy, and perhaps the future of Humanity.
