#Trump45: Hold On!!! – – – Trump’s Coming

No need for more explanations and analysis about what is happening to America and the world, as we have tried to do since 2007. It’s time to count seconds, minutes, hours, then it is over. It’s almost over.

Let the music speak. It’s our new video to help us count down the seconds to the real Happy New Year on January 20-17.



In our first article of election year 2016 we wrote:

We have no doubt that 2016 will be a horrid year. We do not doubt that Barack Obama, like a wounded animal thrashing about, will continue his attempts to rip the Constitution and the fabric and future of the country. We also do not doubt that the next president, to be elected in 2016, will not merely “occupy” 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue but inhabit the White House with a commitment and love for America’s highest ideals and love for the nation and all its people. But first we will have to survive Obama’s last mile. We will survive, then thrive.

Not an hour goes by without Obama continuing to attempt to destroy the nation. But there are now less hours for Obama to do his damage. We have survived and now we will thrive. Just count the seconds. It’s almost over.

Just Hold On, Trump’s Coming — to rescue America. To Make America Great Again.

Obama Last Days Explained: Coward John Lewis, Play Russia To Defend Islam, Attack Israel, Defang The West, As The IC Threatens @RealDonaldTrump

Once again the obvious is missed by so-called analysts and Big Media pundits. We’ll explain it all.

Let’s start with that coward John Lewis. John Lewis is busy with his individual race-baiting brand of “interposition and nullification” by declaring President-Elect Donald J. Trump to be an illegitimate president. John Lewis is a coward and a pig. We recall on October 2007 John Lewis endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Then the Obama attacks against John Lewis began. John Lewis, coward, broke down and dumped Hillary Clinton to endorse Obama on February 28, 2008. Now coward John Lewis pretends he is a big Hillary hero. Go to Hell John Lewis and go jump off the Edmund Pettus Bridge, you fat coward and old pig. Your glory days decades ago are over and now you are just a lump of ugliness.

Next, Obama and Russia. What is Obama up to? Well, he’s protecting Islam of course. Here’s what’s going on: Obama in his last week as chief goofball sent thousands of troops to Poland. Why? Because Obama is trying to set up troubles with Russia for Trump to deal with as the first priority and first headache for Trump the moment he becomes president.

Why is Obama trying to set up Russia as President Donald J. Trump’s first headache? In one small part because it continues the John Lewis “illegitimate” narrative. But the big reason for Obama to set up Russia as President Donald J. Trump’s first big and long-term headache is to protect Muslims and Islam. How? Well as long as President-Elect, soon President Donald J. Trump, is busy with Russia the longer he won’t be able to turn his full time attention to Muslim terrorists and the Islamic animals who bring ruin to all the world.

Obama’s use of Russia to protect Islam and the animals who kill in the name of Islam won’t work. For one, unlike Obama, Donald J. Trump can chew gum and walk at the same time. Second, Donald J. Trump knows about priorities. Trump will not be distracted by Obama’s tiny shiny balls trying to protect Islam and Muslim terrorists.

Which brings us to the “intelligence community” or IC. On Sunday, that dullard from the C.I.A. warned Trump about Russia. CIA director John Brennan despite all his many failures and the many stupidities and outright treacheries of Barack Obama tried on Sunday to lecture President-Elect Donald J. Trump on what he should and should not do. Most of his attacks centered on, you guessed it, Russia:

CIA Director John Brennan on Sunday had a stern parting message for Republican Donald Trump days before he assumes the U.S. presidency, cautioning him against loosening sanctions on Russia and warning him to watch what he says.

Brennan rebuked the president-elect for comparing U.S. intelligence practices to Nazi Germany in comments that laid bare the friction between Trump and the intelligence community he has criticized and is on the verge of commanding. [snip]

“What I do find outrageous is equating intelligence community with Nazi Germany,” Brennan said. “I do take great umbrage at that.”

His comments followed a tumultuous week of finger-pointing between Trump and intelligence agency leaders over an unsubstantiated report of compromising information Moscow had collected on Trump.

The unverified dossier was summarized in a U.S. intelligence report presented to President Barack Obama and Trump this month that concluded Russia tried to sway the outcome of the Nov. 8 election by hacking and other means. It did not make an assessment on whether the attempts were successful.

Trump accused the intelligence community of leaking the compromising information, which its leaders denied. They said it was their responsibility to inform the president-elect that the allegations were being circulated.

So what is this all about? Well its all about the distraction campaign using Russia to protect Islam. It’s also part of the delegitimize campaign. But it’s largely about Blackmail. We’ve seen it all before. It’s an old Gestapo trick. J. Edgar Hoover of the F.B.I. used this trick too. It went this way in 1960 and 1962: J. Edgar Hoover tells JFK there are all these dirty stories about you circulating, then Hoover presents a dossier on JFK to JFK with all the dirty secrets. After JFK sees what Hoover has in his files Hoover tells JFK, “don’t worry, I’ll protect you and keep this secret”.

In JFK’s case most of what Hoover had in his files was true. There was tons of blackmail material in Hoover’s files. But it does not matter whether the materials are true or false. The purpose is to intimidate, to let the new president know in no uncertain terms who is the boss in the relationship. As with JFK, who laughed off Hoover, after Hoover presented the blackmail material (maybe that’s due to the fact that the Kennedys themselves knew how to blackmail and because they knew J. Edgar Hoover was a homosexual) the attempt to intimidate President-Elect Donald J. Trump did not work.

When the blackmail material did not intimidate President-Elect Donald J. Trump, Big Media CNN got the wink and nod from the IC to publicize the material. Then Buzzfeed got the wink and nod from the IC to dump their ugly turd.

Problem is, none of this worked. Why? Because Trump fights. Trump took the fight against Big Media and the “intelligence community” public. President-Elect Donald J. Trump let them all know who is top dog, who wags the tail, and who are the dog’s turds.

Which brings us back to Israel. We discussed what Barack Obama is up to on Israel and how Gideon President-Elect Donald J. Trump with one single fireside Tweet will demolish Obama’s treacherous legacy. Today, Sunday, Barack Obama is again waging war against Israel:

The international community will send Donald Trump a strong warning that only a two-state solution can solve the Israel-Palestinian crisis, amid signs that the EU is willing to diverge from the US on Israel policy.

A conference in Paris on Sunday of more than 70 countries, organised by the French government and coming five days before Trump is inaugurated, will warn that the two-state solution is under threat and urge both sides in the conflict to resume talks.

It comes as Palestinians expressed concern that Trump advisers endorse the controversial Israeli settlement programme and want to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. [snip]

Netanyahu has called the event futile, rigged and “a relic”, saying: “It’s a last gasp of the past before the future sets in.”

That future is called Donald J. Trump. Barack Obama wants to befuddle President Donald J. Trump with Russia headaches so that Obama can attack Israel, as well as protect Islam and Muslim terrorists from Trump. Meanwhile Obama, after the Paris coven today plans more dangerous anti-Israel pro-Islam treacheries this last week:

Meanwhile, the PA official speaking to Breitbart Jerusalem said that any upcoming UN action would be geared toward bypassing the Mideast policies of the incoming Donald Trump administration by establishing binding guidelines for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and a halt to settlement activity.

“The new motion will seek to set up a clear timeline for negotiations resulting in the establishment of a Palestinian state and stipulate a procedure for overseeing the implementation of Resolution 2334, including posting inspectors to the Palestinian territories,” said the PA official, who requested anonymity. [snip]

The PA official added that the Paris conference is expected to call on all sides to establish a Palestinian state within the so-called 1967 borders in a relatively short period of time, perhaps by the beginning of 2019.

“The goal is for these moves to be binding for the incoming American administration, which would have to adopt them as its platform, and also for the European Union, which is expected to step up should there be clashes with Trump,” he said.

“In the next few days we’ll know whether we’re headed to the UNSC,” the official said. “Right now, the chances of that are very high. From our viewpoint, the goal is partially achieved. The settlements have been designated as the main obstacle to the peace process and now it’s up for the world to make clear that, in the event of failure, the side that would refuse to comply with the will of the international community, as codified in the UN resolution, is the guilty side.”

The official said that at present it remains unclear whether any UNSC session would produce a new resolution or merely validate last week’s resolution.

Following in the EU’s steps, now the US recognizes that it’s Israel that sabotages the peace talks, and does so through its settlement enterprise,” the official claimed. “The motion is of immense significance – it validates all the decisions by the international community, chiefly the EU, to slap sanctions on Israel in the form of halting cooperation, halting the financing of mutual projects and expansion in scope of marking settlement products to all the products from every single settlement.

The PA official spoke following reports in recent days that there could be another UN Security Council resolution or some other UN action before Obama leaves office.

With the EU as his treacherous cats paw, Barack Obama wants to saddle President Trump with strife on Russia so that Trump cannot defend Israel nor move to attack the march of Islam against the West. But Barack Obama (as is the EU) and his policies are a relic, a last gasp of the past. Donald J. Trump is the future. The future will fight against the past to defend Israel, protect the West, and Make America Great Again.

20-17 Almost Here – Good-bye “Age Of Fake”, Hello “Age Of Triumph – Age Of Greatness”

Update: “A watched pot never boils.” Next Friday at noon… so… slow… so… slow…



——————————————————————–

It’s not Happy New Year yet. But it is close. 20-17 is almost here.

Once 20-17 arrives the heavens open up with fire, music, joy, and achievement. Right now though, contrary to what superficial analysis declares, there’s not really much going on. We are in the preliminary stages, the preparatory stages. It’s an important time, akin to the early evening when you bathe and put on a tuxedo or evening gown, but the show only begins when the opera curtains go up and the music flows.

On 20-17 the curtain goes up and the music will flow.

Not much is going on. Yes, there are a bunch of posturing “hearings” in the United States Senate but that’s all a big bunch of nothing because the Trump nominees will be approved especially after their stellar, often calculatingly dull, appearances before our dimwitted senators.

There was that tinkling fun over the comic book attack on President-Elect Donald J. Trump we had so much fun with over at the comments section in our last article, but that has been so thoroughly refuted the fun with that is over. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, “it’s over for Trump” failed again and once again what didn’t kill Trump has made him stronger (especially against the “intelligence” community and the loathsome Big Media).

President-Elect Donald J. Trump did hold a triumphant press conference which scared Big Media and the loony left because so much truth was revealed. Back in 2008 we noted that Big Media is a political party, not a news dissemination enterprise. That observation has been proven true as we witness Big Media fake news dispensed like stay awake pills at an Obama speech. Trump stomped on CNN fake news dissemination and Big Media howled. It was fun and few now even recall that Obama tried to make news this week. But Obama is the past. We here at Big Pink are in gorgeous dressing gowns with long trains and Jackie Kennedy style long white gloves, or in Tuxedos, waiting for the curtain to rise.

So what is there is do until 20-17? We’ll soon be writing our last articles of the last age summarizing what we have since 2009 called “The Age Of Fake”. We hit it on the nail with that description didn’t we? Now everyone talks about “fake news” and fake this and fake that. Obama and Obama worship was the Age Of Fake but on 20-17 we will enter The Age of Triumph, the Age of Greatness“.

As the Age of Fake ends we kick out the door Barack Obama and his silly “Farewell Address” which rendered BuzzFeed to tears. We kid you not. Buzzfeed idiot employees and the official BuzzFeed account confessed the tears were flowing because, they wondered, if we Americans “deserve the Obamas as President and First Lady?” Go to the link. Observe the lunacy. The answer is we Americans did not deserve to be punished with the Obama’s but the corruption in our elites has been so massive for eight years we suffered.

The Age of Fake featured many instances of race-baiting. Often the story was that some poor innocent black person or persons (Muslims pulled the same lie repeatedly too) were attacked by some vicious KKK white organization and soon… after a police investigation to arrest the vicious white KKK organization of monsters… the culprit would be revealed to be a black person who either bombed the black church or posted the ugly leaflet, or sent the “racist” tweet. The Age of Fake ends with more fake “racism”:

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Anne Arundel County Police Department has charged a 14-year-old girl with a juvenile citation for sending a threatening tweet related to Arundel High School.

Police began their investigation after Arundel High School officials told them about a suspicious Twitter account.

The account, named @KoolkidsKlanKkk, reportedly sent out a tweet that read, “We’re planning to attack tomorrow”.

Yeah, it was a 14-year old black girl that sent out the “racist” tweet from the “kkk” which threatened an “attack”. Age of Fake.

Fake “racism” and fake “racists” have been all the rage in the Age of Fake. If you’re a black person that rejects fake “racism” fake “racists” and the all too real race-baiting of Obama Dimocrats and Barack Obama himself, well you’re just a “house nigga”. That’s what happened to Senator Tim Scott.

Senator Tim Scott and other black people dared to defend and endorse soon to be the Attorney General, Senator Jeff Sessions. For that offense Senator Tim Scott, a black man, was called a “house nigga”. Senator Tim Scott’s response came with the wit and brevity we expect to be standard practice in the coming “Age of Triumph, Age of Greatness“:


That’s a way of saying “kiss my sweet black ass” Trump style.

Age of Triumph, Age of Greatness“. It begins. 20-17.

Farewell Lies: Obama Returns To Scene Of The Crime – As Trump Triumph Looms

Tonight the slimy filth will return to the scene of the crime. Chicago.


Chicago Clown

Tonight Barack Obama returns to the scene of the crime. We are not talking about this month’s crime of black racists who imprisoned and attacked a mentally impaired white man and forced him to repeat their anti-Trump anti-white people rants – in Chicago. We are not talking about the crime of the thousands of people, many black, shot and killed every year the past eight years – in Chicago. The “crime” we refer to is the filthy pool of slime that nurtured Barack Obama – Tony Rezko’s – Chicago. Chicago, the “toddling town” that unfortunately “Billy Sunday could not shut down“. Chicago – the filthy slimy political Hellhole that gave rise to the corruption, the abomination called Barack Obama.

As documented so well by Newsbusters, Big Media has “drooled” every time Barack Obama opened his mouth. Newsbusters’ big failure is the lack of a Judith Warner mention as she masturbated herself in the New York Times with fantasies of sex with Barack Obama.

What Barack Obama will say tonight does not matter. We only commemorate this last “farewell” excretion by him as an opportunity to gloat and laugh at the boob that failed. Proof of the totality of failures by Barack Obama can be found today in Washington D.C. as Senator Jeff Sessions appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee to be confirmed as the next Attorney General of the United States. In the following days more hearings will take place as the Trump triumph takes shape and the Obama failures are wiped away.

Barack Obama failed in all his goals. For a while Obama divided America and for a while Obama appeared anxious to destroy America – but Obama failed.

Tonight, in the corruption known as Chicago, Barack Obama will excrete more verbiage, diarrhea logorrhea, to try to explain his failures and disguise the failures as successes. Only the stupid or corrupt will believe anything Barack Obama says tonight.

Farewell addresses by former presidents once had a purpose larger than themselves. The two most important ones are from the first president, George Washington, and from Dwight Eisenhower who like the current President-Elect never held elective office before becoming president. Both of these farewell addresses are pertinent to the challenges about to be faced by President Trump.

George Washington’s Farewell Address sounds very much like Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign:

In his farewell Presidential address, George Washington advised American citizens to view themselves as a cohesive unit and avoid political parties and issued a special warning to be wary of attachments and entanglements with other nations.

The entire 32 page Farewell Address by Washington should be read to fully understand the challenges about to be faced by Donald J. Trump. Much of what Washington wrote will resonate for those that followed the Trump campaign and watch the new administration take shape.

Donald J. Trump ran for president on an “America First” platform and promised to “Make America Great Again – For All“. Trump also often mocked the very political party whose nomination he sought. In one debate he took particular glee in attacking the policies of the last Republican president whose brother he defeated during the primaries. Trump not only demolished the Bush family of Republicans. Trump also demolished the Clinton family and exposed as the failure he is, Barack Obama.

As pertinent as the first president’s farewell address is, the 34th president’s farewell address is even more pertinent.



We’ve seen President-Elect Donald J. Trump already begin to take on the power players President Dwight David Eisenhower warned about. Consider what President Eisenhower said and Donald J. Trump statements on his doubts about the so-called “consensus” on anthropomorphic climate change. Here’s President Eisenhower:

Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades.

In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.

Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.

The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present — and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system — ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.

What Eisenhower warned about has come to pass. Judith Curry:

[autoplay video removed]

She excelled at pointing out the uncertainties and deficiencies of climate modeling. Given the thoroughly politicized nature of climate science her efforts to clarify what is known and unknown by climate science caused her to be pilloried as “anti-science” by other researchers who are convinced that man-made global warming is leading toward catastrophe. In her blog annoucement Curry explains her resignation:

A deciding factor was that I no longer know what to say to students and postdocs regarding how to navigate the CRAZINESS in the field of climate science. Research and other professional activities are professionally rewarded only if they are channeled in certain directions approved by a politicized academic establishment — funding, ease of getting your papers published, getting hired in prestigious positions, appointments to prestigious committees and boards, professional recognition, etc.

How young scientists are to navigate all this is beyond me, and it often becomes a battle of scientific integrity versus career suicide (I have worked through these issues with a number of skeptical young scientists).

Let me relate an interaction that I had with a postdoc about a month ago. She wanted to meet me, as an avid reader of my blog. She works in a field that is certainly relevant to climate science, but she doesn’t identify as a climate scientist. She says she gets questioned all the time about global warming issues, and doesn’t know what to say, since topics like attribution, etc. are not topics that she explores as a scientist. WOW, a scientist that knows the difference! I advised her to keep her head down and keep doing the research that she thinks interesting and important, and to stay out of the climate debate UNLESS she decides to dig in and pursue it intellectually. Personal opinions about the science and political opinions about policies that are sort of related to your research expertise are just that – personal and political opinions. Selling such opinions as contributing to a scientific consensus is very much worse than a joke.

As relevant as Eisenhower’s warning about the potential corruption of scientific research by the power of government is, it is Eisenhower’s warnings about the “military-industrial complex” that most resonate today:

A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction.

Our military organization today bears little resemblance to that known by any of my predecessors in peacetime, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea.

Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

Donald J. Trump, to much mockery from Big Media, has warned major arms makers such as Lockheed Martin and the Boeing Corporation. President-Elect Trump has also made clear there is much to be reformed in military procurement to stop the massive waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer money:

WASHINGTON Pentagon leaders and thousands of military contractors across the country might be wondering just what President-elect Donald Trump has in store for them.

In two tweets this month that sent shockwaves through defense companies and their lobbying firms, Trump criticized the spiraling costs of building a new Air Force One and a fleet of F-35 fighter jets. [snip]

“He’s going to encounter a Pentagon bureaucracy that will instinctively say ‘no’ to most reforms he proposes,” said Todd Harrison, a former defense lobbyist and retired Air Force Reserves captain who’s now an analyst with the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. [snip]

“They don’t scrutinize the original bids carefully enough, so contractors come in with a low bid while understanding that they’re not going to meet it,” Hartung said. “And then the Pentagon will add requirements and new features along the way. Eventually the costs get out of control.”

By the time that’s evident, however, inertia keeps the program going. “Once they put a certain amount of money on the table, they’re reluctant to end or dramatically scale it back,” Hartung said.

Whether Trump will be able to change that culture is what experts in Pentagon procurement are watching. [snip]

The pre-inaugural meetings with the defense firm bosses give Harrison some grounds to hope. The meeting is in keeping with Trump’s penchant for the unconventional approach.

Afterward, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg pledged to get Air Force One built for less than the $4 billion budgeted. Lockheed Martin’s CEO Marillyn Hewson was less committal, pledging only that her company is dedicated to “delivering an affordable aircraft to our U.S. military and our allies.”

I think he will be less likely to listen to the bureaucracy,” Harrison said of Trump. “What we’ve seen so far is that he’s more self-confident and he’s willing to say things and do things that buck the establishment. He almost takes joy in it.”

President Donald J. Trump will need to fight hard against the military-industrial complex, as President Eisenhower warned. On December 15, 2016 it was revealed that the Pentagon tried to hide a report that documented one out of four dollars, $125 billion, of the Pentagon budget was wasted.

You can be sure that Barack Obama will not mention the hundreds of billions of dollars wasted by himself. Throw in the many failed Obama policies at home and abroad and the waste by Barack Obama amounts to trillions of dollars and eight full years.

So total are Obama’s failures that for the next eight years (yes, eight!) President-Elect Donald J. Trump will Make America Great Again with relative ease. When you go from the bottom of the barrel, Barack Obama, to the towering figure of Donald J. Trump, the future can’t come soon enough.

The future begins on January 20-17.

On January 20-17, President Donald J. Trump should read and be enlightened by the farewell speeches of Washington and Eisenhower. President Trump can use Obama’s farewell nonsense to fuel the fireplace in the Oval Office.

#IntelligenceBriefing: Smart @RealDonaldTrump And Tillerson Versus Putin, Russians, And China

President-Elect Donald J. Trump is so smart few analysts notice just how smart he is. Trump knows something Obama never learned and it is called “priorities“. President-Elect Donald J. Trump has a smart strategy against Russia’s Putin, and against China, which is easy to see, but few notice because they are so busy chasing shiny objects (such as “hacking”) due either to political posturing or sheer stupidity. Those who want analysis above the superficial, read on.



Mitt Romney was mocked at a 2012 debate by Obama when Romney declared Russia to be America’s “number one geopolitical foe”. We’ve written repeatedly about Putin’s toughness and smarts and about his very dangerous aims, such as the Goldfinger Grand Slam Strategy, so we are not fools about Putin. Yet we agree with what Trump is doing because “priorities”.



For eight years we mocked Obama often and in part because he did not have “priorities”. To Obama everything was a “priority” and when everything is a priority, nothing is a priority. President-Elect Donald J. Trump has priorities and right now Russia and Putin are not nor should they be the #1 priority of President Trump.

Why is President-Elect Donald J. Trump correct to view America’s #1 geopolitical foe as not the #1 priority? Because Russia’s strength is Russia’s weakness and President-Elect Donald J. Trump has a clear cut strategy to win the fight against this dangerous geopolitical foe. In one word, that strategy, that strength, that weakness, is “oil”.

Did you notice that Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil CEO, is the man chosen by President-Elect Donald J. Trump to be the Secretary of State? Yes, the guy that knows the most about oil than just about anyone else, who knows Vladimir Putin very well, who knows the oil markets better than Obama knows where to buy the most potent weed to smoke – that’s the guy Trump has chosen to be Secretary of State.

President-Elect Donald J. Trump knows how to bring Putin and Russia to heel. It’s called “oil”. Charles Krauthammer, in between his limited vision and hatred of Trump, understands Russia’s strength is also it’s weakness:

“The Russians have been obsessed with missile defense systems since Reagan invented the idea. They know that we are technologically advanced. They are only a superpower because they have nukes. Their economy produces nothing but oil, gas and vodka.

Do you want to bring Russia to it’s knees and cut Vladimir Putin’s… um, knees, off? Stop drinking Russian vodka and flood the markets with oil and gas. Trump doesn’t drink vodka, so he is already one step ahead of many on that one.

Trump also wants to boost American production of oil and natural gas. If Trump does this Putin can say goodbye to his cut, …um, knees. President-Elect Donald J. Trump understands all of this. Raise American oil and natural gas production, prices fall, Russia goes into an economic spiral and must retrench. Raise American oil and natural gas production and the American economy booms (especially if via import tariffs on oil, production can be kept profitable).

President-Elect Donald J. Trump also understands that the Middle East and American policy in the region is driven by our love and support for Israel, and, mostly by the world-wide need for oil. All of this is why Rex Tillerson is such a smart choice for Trump.

To deal with Russia as America’s number one geopolitical foe requires America to be an economic superpower and that is why Trump says to Make America Great Again, Make America Rich Again.



President-Elect Trump knows how to handle Russia and Vladimir Putin. But intelligence dictates that China takes priority. You first have to make America Rich Again.

China! Have you noticed what President-Elect has already done on China? Hint: personnel is policy.

President-Elect Donald J. Trump nominated a friendly face, Iowa governor Terry Branstad, to be the American Ambassador to China. Governor Branstad is a long time friend of President Xi Jinping of China and other Chinese leaders. Why did President-Elect Donald J. Trump nominate Branstad? Think Mary Poppins – a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.



Better make that a sackful of sugar! Look at who else President-Elect Donald J. Trump has named to help him with China:

The president-elect announced the creation of a new National Trade Council inside the White House to facilitate industrial policy and named an ardent skeptic of trade with China, economist Peter Navarro, to head it.

Later, he tapped billionaire investor Carl Icahn to serve as special adviser on overhauling federal regulations, a job with sweeping implications given Mr. Trump’s campaign promise to remove 90% of federal rules that affect American jobs. [snip]

On trade, Mr. Trump has promised to withdraw the U.S.’s pledge to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement with Japan and other Pacific Rim nations that Congress has yet to ratify, and he has called for the U.S. to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico.

But it is with China, which isn’t a party to either agreement, where Mr. Navarro has taken his harshest tone.

He has written several books with provocative titles, including “The Coming China Wars” in 2008 and “Death by China: Confronting the Dragon—A Global Call to Action” in 2011, and struck up a correspondence with Mr. Trump several years ago after he saw an interview in which the New York businessman spoke approvingly of Mr. Navarro’s China analysis.

“What we share in common is a deeper understanding of the key structural problem facing the U.S. economy, and it’s the trade issue,” said Mr. Navarro in an interview before last month’s election.

Labor groups have long complained about U.S. trade agreements and are likely to support Mr. Trump’s efforts to adjust policy in ways that bolster domestic manufacturing and curb imports.

Make that several sackfuls of sugar. China won’t like going up against Trump’s smarties:

US President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday named veteran steel industry trade lawyer Robert Lighthizer, a harsh critic of China’s trade practices, to be his chief trade negotiator, responsible for better deals aimed at reducing US trade deficits.

Trump announced his selection in a statement from his transition team on Tuesday, saying Lighthizer would help “fight for good trade deals that put the American worker first“.

Lighthizer was a deputy US trade representative during the Reagan administration, where he helped to stem the tide of imports from Japan in the 1980s with threats of quotas and punitive tariffs.

He returns to lead the agency after nearly three decades as a lawyer representing US steelmakers and other companies in anti-dumping and anti-subsidy cases, helping to establish import duties that have reduced Chinese steel imports by billions of dollars.

Lighthizer, who is with the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom, has argued in public testimony that China has failed to live up to commitments made in 2001 when it joined the World Trade Organization and that more aggressive tactics are needed to “force change in the system”, even if it means deviating from WTO rules.

Years of passivity and drift among US policymakers have allowed the US-China trade deficit to grow to the point where is widely recognised as a major threat to our economy,” Lighthizer wrote in 2010 testimony to Congress’s US-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

Lighthizer is regarded as an experienced tactician with an intimate knowledge of trade tools that were widely used before the WTO was created in 1995, including “Section 301” tariffs that were used against Japan in the 1980s to stem a tide of imports of Japanese steel and vehicles.

See what Trump is up to? Priority 1: boost the American economy first. Priority 2: Deal with China (thereby nuke nutjobs in North Korea too). Priority 3: then deal with Russia and the Middle East. Priorities!

Have no doubt, China understands that President Trump is no chump, unlike hapless punk Obama. China is scared and resorts to bluster:

“May the arrogant Americans realise that the United States of America is perhaps just a shooting star in the ample sky of history,” said an editorial in the Communist party-affiliated Global Times newspaper.

All the nonsense about hacks and Russia and sh*t are just a way for political opponents of President-Elect Donald J. Trump (in two weeks “President” Donald J. Trump and Happy New Year for us) to delegitimize Trump.

We can’t blame them for these tactics because the NeverTrump forces have no other cards to play. So they drone on about nonsense hacks and trot out liars such as Clapper to make fools of themselves and try to make fools out of the American people. Even Trump hating leftists such as Glenn Greenwald and Matt Taibbi smell the B.O. stink from Clapper’s crappers. Computer security expert John McAfee smells the same stinky lies.

The latest back and forth of “intelligence briefings” for Trump about Russian hacks even as these allegedly top secret reports are published at Big Media outlets before Trump sees them – are all shiny, meaningless, nutrition-less, nonsense.

The big news is President-Elect Donald J. Trump’s “personnel is policy” priority appointments. That’s why China is worried. That’s why Putin wants to be friends.

That’s why President Trump will succeed and Make America Great Again!
