It’s by now crystal clear the coup-in-progress against Donald Trump is a made in USA regime change op using standard hybrid war techniques such as manipulation of public opinion by mainstream media.
The coup has been articulated by the usual suspects, from neocons to neoliberalcons, “humanitarian” imperialists included, with a special starring role for their pet agency, the CIA, which during the Bush-Obama continuum further specialized in fake “intelligence”.
And yet the whole “Russia hacked our freedoms” narrative was thoroughly debunked by former UK diplomat and close WikiLeaks contributor Craig Murray; he even knows where the leak – not hack – came from.
Adding (infantile) insult to (juvenile) injury, Queen of War cum sore loser Hillary Clinton, at a private donor event, blamed it all on a President Putin vendetta. She may have internalized too many Tarantino flicks – and her dialogue lines are far from quirky; but still she delivered a “He Came, He Saw, I Was Toast” narrative according to which “Vladimir Putin himself directed the covert cyber attacks against our electoral system, against our democracy, apparently because he has a personal beef against me.”
And “the beef” of course turned into a porterhouse steak with the addition of the FBI as a Russian/WikiLeaks accomplice – via Director James Comey’s two letters in the final days of the campaign. All bent on compromising “the integrity of our democracy and the security of our nation.”
Cut to the still ongoing legal “efforts” to turn Trump voters around in the US Electoral College – spearheaded by Democrat apparatchiks and widely applauded by the glittering “liberal” galaxy. If facts on the ground in Syria have smashed the “Assad must go” meme – an Obama creation – at least now they have “Trump must go” to rely on. Who wants (pregnant with history, devastated) Aleppo when you can get Washington D.C.?
The same old “who lost Russia” question still permeates the Beltway. The answer is stark; the deep state-woven Clinton-Bush-Obama continuum did, with their obsession on unlimited, expanded NATO Robocop-ization and regime change ops across the Middle East and beyond, a GWOT (Global War on Terror) plank essential to keep reproducing terror ad infinitum.
And that’s exactly that modus operandi that the Trump era may – and the operative concept is “may” – be willing to shatter.
All about Taiwan
So Russophobia seems to qualify as a psychotic obsession deployed by the neocon/neoliberalcon factions bent on pulling off a regime change on Trump – before or after his inauguration.
Now compare it with what might be interpreted as the first symptoms of budding Sinophobia – as deployed by the President-Elect himself.
It started with the famed Taiwan phone call – which I aimed to deconstruct; that’s Trump – blissfully unaware of the complexities of the “One China” policy – trying to use Taiwan as a bargaining chip.
