Neoconning the God-Emperor

At some point, Donald Trump is going to have to realize that there is a reason the neocons and their global policeman approach failed:
President Donald Trump said Wednesday that it is now his responsibility to resolve the humanitarian and political crisis in Syria as he opened the door to military action in the country. Trump upped the ante in a Rose Garden press conference after having said earlier in the day that the the chemical weapons attack is a 'terrible affront to humanity.'

'My attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much,' Trump declared, suggesting with the statement that he may be reconsidering his directive to US diplomats to take their focus off removing Bashar al-Assad from power.

The 'horrible, horrible' sarin gas attack that killed small children and 'beautiful babies' had a 'big impact' on the president, who declared Wednesday that the attack 'crossed a lot of lines.' 'When you kill innocent children, innocent babies...with a chemical gas that is so lethal...that crosses many, many lines. Beyond a red line,' Trump said, making reference to Barack Obama's infamous 2012 threat to Assad.
No one actually gives a damn about Syrian children, except that they not be permitted to reside in the West. It's unfortunate that the God-Emperor appears - appears - be falling increasingly under the sway of the Washington wormtongues whispering about being presidential in his ears.

Perhaps the God-Emperor needs to get out of the White House and start listening to the American people again rather than his observably unreliable intelligence agencies.

It's really rather remarkable how "the international situation" operates as a "hey shiny" distraction for politicians. People have been getting brutalized and slaughtered in the Middle East for 6,000 years. If humanity is really fortunate, they'll be getting brutalized and slaughtered there 6,000 years from now. To believe that it is any concern of yours, much less that you can do anything about it, is the height of folly.

And, of course, that's assuming that the whole "chemical weapons attack" isn't a false flag in the first place, which is very, very far from a safe assumption.

The Russians have already called BS:
The United States, Britain and France have proposed a draft U.N. Security Council resolution that would condemn the attack; the Russian Foreign Ministry called it "unacceptable" and said it was based on "fake information".

These are just words and Trump has yet to take any irrevocable action in Syria... so I'm hoping he's taking this opportunity to try to smoke out his enemies. He's done that sort of thing before.

I would not be surprised if it is a false flag opperation. The Gulf Oil States want a pipeline through Syria to Europe. This hurts Russia and makes (((neocons))) happy. Follow the money trail

Blogger Noah B The MacroAggressor April 05, 2017 4:08 PM  

Could Trump be using this opportunity to play McCain? The Gorsuch vote is coming up, and Trump needs McCain's vote to invoke the nuclear option. And McCain is deeply invested and involved in removing Assad to get the pipelines through Syria.

Anonymous VFM #6306 April 05, 2017 4:08 PM  

Something fishy here. "My attitude to Assad and Syria has changed very much"

Trump said on the campaign (regarding H1B) - "I'm changing. I'm changing. We need highly skilled people in this country. If we can't do it, we will get them in. And we do need in Silicon Valley, we absolutely have to have. So we do need highly skilled," he said.

...then about three days later he clarified that by stating that H1Bs were useless.

I don't know if he does it because he processes opportunities constantly, if he gets distracted, or if it is strategic.

All I know is that he has shown a pattern of "I've changed...I've changed" before about a hundred times. Every time, he clarifies that he's far worse than the Left could imagine.

I don't know, however, what he does with the exLeftist Neocons.

Anonymous Hong Wang April 05, 2017 4:10 PM  

This attack makes very little sense to me. What would Assad have to gain from this kind of thing? All the man had to do to ensure eventual victory, was to avoid pushing the boundaries so as to stay in favor with the United States. This is the last thing he would do, unless he is a lunatic, which he does not appear to be.

Agreed totally. Mattis and Kelly are not to be trusted, and this has their fingerprints all over it. The caveat is Trump hasn't done anything, and sometimes he masterfully used rhetoric about "X" to sway people on "Y." Let's hope that is the case here, and there is some history cited above I won't rehash that indicates that may be the case.

If Trump gets bogged down in another Middle Eastern war, and that's a big "if," his presidency will flail.

I have seen reports (from the Russian MoD if I recall) that the gas "attack" was the result of Syrian bombers taking out a rebel munitions factory and the casualties were result of a chemical release from that.

Why would Assad use Sarin gas. He is on the offensive on all fronts and close to winning the civil war.

If Trump is changes policy due to this and ratchets up involvement in Syria giving the neocons what they want he would be a fool and likely doom his presidency.

"And it is odd that the Bannon 'demotion' comes when Kushner is out of the country. Move along, nothing to see here."

I'm not convinced that was a demotion just yet. Bannon may be done with outing the rat (susan rice) and doesn't need to be on that council anymore per GE's orders. I've suspected for awhile now that Bannon may have been behind the March 4th tweet.

"Chemical Weapons" are totally blown out of proportion by Hollywood and the media. 10 soldiers armed with LMGs can gun down way more people way more effectively and cheaply than a gas attack. Then there is the problem of delivering the gas effectively and not hitting your own guys with it. Gassing random civilians is about all they are good for, since they're not likely to respond effectively and there is such a strong fear element. British admitted after WW1 that gas weapons did no greater damage on the enemy, it just made their casualties suffer more.

Strange that the neocons and media didn't give Obama such a hard time back then as they are now with Trump.

Blogger SemiSpook37 April 05, 2017 4:41 PM  

Didn't I just read something earlier today about the GE saying something to the effect that he's just the President of the United States and had no desire to be President of the World? Seems to me that he's more content to be just that than actively taking a role in this whole Syria mess.

If there's one thing that he's been good at doing, it's talking. And that's just it. He's talking. Nothing more, nothing less. The second I see some sort of report coming out of the NSC or my various leads elsewhere in the MIC, then I'll start to worry. I don't even think they're even there, yet.

As for Bannon, no doubt in my mind his purpose was to smoke out Rice's bullshit. I'm surprised I haven't seen any sperging yet on who got ADDED to the NSC after Bannon was taken out: RICK PERRY.

Granted, the DoE is rather useless, but given their tentacles into the nuclear proliferation issue, that makes a hell of a lot of sense. Maybe that department gets rolled into some other organization, perhaps?

If alternate reports are correct, not only was it not the Syrians, there wasn't any gas.

https://www.infowars.com/report-soros-linked-group-behind-chemical-attack-in-syria/

A day prior to the attack, Gulf-based Orient TV announced “Tomorrow we are launching a media campaign to cover the airstrikes on Hama country side including the usage of chemical warfare against civilians.” This shows clear foreknowledge that the rebels were going to stage an attack by Orient TV.

Notice how the media is drum rolling Trump into this. The question is are they doing this to fulfill their globalist's goal, or are they trying to change the story from Susan Rice?

Look, Saddam was one evil son of a bitch but he would have stayed Our Evil Son of a Bitch. The only reason everything fell apart was due to a catastrophic fuck up by a career (female) diplomat who actually was an expert on Arab politics but could't figure out in 1989 that she was having a sit down with a Mafia Chieften who was politely asking permission from his Don (George H. Bush) to whack out another Made Guy. Saddam left that meeting convinced that his years long loyalty had been rewarded and that Kuwait was green lit.

Chemical weapons is most likely BS. There is no reason for Assad to use them, as pointed out their effectiveness is minimal except as a weapon of terror.

An alternative possibility is thermobaric weapons. Thermobaric weapons disperse a fine liquid or powder into the air that is then detonated. Sometimes the detonation does not fully consume the mist / powder and that can cause claims of chemical weapons, as sometimes the substance/fuel (ethylene oxide and propylene oxide) used can be toxic on its own. This was seen in Grozny when the Russians were fighting the chechens.
Note that ethylene oxide is particularly unpleasant and is used to sterilize equipment.... obviously not something you want direct exposure to.

The fact Trump is pumping loads more budget spending into the military is a fairly sure sign he's not the real deal. We're at the point in the cycle where all the (((boyz))) know the economy and markets are about to fall off a cliff, so conflict somewhere is an inevitable distraction/stimulus.

Sailer asked a couple of days ago what would be next after the Russian interference narrative died (accelerated quickly once Rice was outed). It looks like the next thing is trying to get Trump entangled in Syria, under the (reasonable) assumption that this will become a distraction from pursuing his other policy initiatives.

Given how severe Trump's opposition is in D.C., across both parties, he has been plodding along reasonably well. However, getting entangled in a Mideast war in Syria could easily drive his first term into the ditch. Stumbling here would be a few orders of magnitude worse than failing to repeal Obamacare.

He must make a good decision here.

Now obviously Kristol is a lunatic, but consider the kind of junior US senator who would hitch his wagon to Kristol on foreign policy strategizing. That would only make sense if your entire Senatorial career was bought and paid for by Neocohen interests, which with Sasse, it appears to be the case.

OPCW, The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (a UN Mission) stated in a report in 2013 that Syria was in compliance with the UN program for the destruction of its chemical weapons and the same body stated in January 2016 that the latest process "completes destruction of all chemical weapons declared by the Syrian Arab Republic".

Tillerson is due in Moscow on April 11 to discuss Ukraine and Syria. I am sure the Russians will convince him it is all BS.

Trump not cancelling the military mission intervening in Yemen on behalf of the Saudi oriented regime that houthi rebels ousted was a minor transgression that was magnified by the needless death of an American serviceman. Trump excluding the Saudis and Pakis from his travel ban was another. If Trump doesn't use his time to correct the demographic trend then all else means nothing. In that case, things revert back to the previous plan, total RAHOWA. So be it.

I don't know if Vox intended it as such, but it's flushed them out nicely, and added usefully to my filters.

There's room to think the president is insufficiently cynical about his advisors, of course. There's even room for thinking he will make mistakes, or make choices we disagree with. I'd say that's likely, even. There's room for constructive criticism and offering better ideas. That's all a very different thing from the wave of hysterical Chicken Little-ing we get along with every single story that has a possible negative interpretation. We've seen that same pattern play out (and fizzle out), what, 2-3 times a week going back to the early campaign, so at least 100 times now? It's as predicable as it is tiresome, so fortunately it's easy to spot and ignore.

When the United States firebombed and nuked the cities of Japan during WW2 was that somehow less of an outrage against human rights than the Syrian government using poison gas in Syria against cities? I would contend that Japan was less of a threat to the American people than the CIA supported terrorists are to the Syrian people. How can the U.S. government critisize the actions of the Syrian government when its own hands are far more bloody and it's case for self-defense far less believable? Are we supposed to think the U.S. goverment wasn't targeting civilians in WW2? What about the agent orange sprayed in Vietnam? I'm sure there are many more examples. The U.S. government sure has a lot of (((chutzpah))) to critisize human rights abuses in Syria! Putting that bit aside, how many of those babies were put in that situation by the bloody terrorists that our own CIA supports? What business of ours is this anyway? We've got big problems of our own without new wars! Trump is really starting to jump the shark talking about war with N.K. and Syria. One of the big reasons I voted for him was because he wanted raproachement with Russia and talked sanely about Syria. Looks like the (((NeoCons))) got to him! Still better than Hillary though.

The concern trolls are concerned.

There is a major psy op going on across the alt right sphere to push the idea that Trump is a cuck, a neocon and a traitor. The shills pushing that idea all claim to have been Trump supporters who have become disillusioned and they frequently use (((echoes))) to try and fit in.

This form of shilling was used on the chans during the election but failed. Now it has returned a hundred times worse. I do not know whether this coordinated shill attempt is because they believe this is a line of attack that has been working (hence going all out) or they are desperate because Trump is on the cusp of doing something very damaging to the elite/deep state.

There are 3 things to remember when you see demoralizing shills

1. Trump is not the Messiah and no one expected him to be. He is just a step in the right direction

2. As long as Trump is still moving in the general direction we approve of then its all good.

3. We memed him into the office. We can meme someone else into the office at the next election if Trump fails.


FWIW, I read Trump's 'changing his mind on Syria' to be the class misdirection he does and I expect him to come out and say the conflict must end and then throw his support behind Assad.

The Syrian conflict would have been over years ago if Obama was not supporting the rebels.

GE is working well with other countries, he and Putin will get along well, its all good. For all we know, right now executive orders are being signed to throw the house, senate, etc., into a hysterical fits over ACA or other issues. This Admin is a master at working 24-7.

Recall his picture with Mittens; the GE had that mischievous grin and dumped Mittens so hard we all heard the slap down. Rick Perry is being set up to fail and exit too, the neocons are being set up to fail and exit too, just wait.

25 is correct its all talk for the media, compassion, concern, GE isn't going to help a religion that actively executes that which his children married into; Christianity and Judaism. Loyalty and family is a crowning value with this family.

The POTUS, GE, is like many around here; they play master level chess with 3rd graders with their checkerboards, support will not waiver; GE has a sense of duality, this is serving him well. The team is ok, the neocons/bomb dropping isn't working as Ann Coulter already talked about war fatigue and the wars are not working, what Vox and others are saying here is reality. Reality isn't always kind or good news but its reality.

We have seen incidents where chemical munitions were used against civilians in recent years. The last time I recall, the chemical weapons had been supplied by a British firm to Libya, and were captured by ISIS. These were used soon after Obama drew his bright red line on the use of chemical weapons, only they were used by the rebels and not by the Syrian military.

Turkey has been using chemical weapons on the Kurdi for years, as had Iraq, before the American invasion.

I certainly hope that President Trump is not persuaded to join the NeoCons, like Juan McCain and Lindsey Graham. The NeoCons are the core of the NeverTrumpers in the Republican party and the prospect of him doing a "kiss and make up" with his sworn enemies is a major disappointment.

The Bannon story is cover for Trump having now purged the National Security Council of political hacks and the generally incompetent. That's got to piss off a lot of the reporters that got leaks/real intel passed to them.

As for Syria, Trump has already changed our strategic objectives from Regime Change to Annihilate ISIS (which is really cleaning up our own mess). That alone is enough. So, yes, he pointed out how terrible that is. Now it's up to others to smash the narrative. With the complete breakdown in the Media Control of the Right, there won't be a base of support for too much action in Syria.

And, as a classic reminder, Trump does Public Bluster/Private Hard Dealing. He now has leverage with Assad he didn't have yesterday, but that doesn't change what he will actually order.

I expect Trump to fly disapointingly low and slow until after the midterm elections in 2018. If we don't give our president a better House and Senate in 2018, what happens after is on us. If we support President Trump in 2018 and then he doesn't pick up the pace, _then_ and _only_ then we can start trying to elect a David to follow Trump's Saul.

Until then, shut up and shoot left.

Trump the Rope-Seller just played the entire previous administration, NatSec establishment and Media for the entire month of March about spying on his Campaign & Transition. People clearly are already forgetting this. We're too well trained to assume everything is negative rather than actually listen to Trump.

He said all of nothing about Syria. Re-read the statements. It's horrible children died and that's a terrible thing. His view on Syria/Assad had "changed". Was he referencing a change of policy from last week or that the policy was implemented because he had changed his view already? This man is the Master Persuader and he said nothing of substance.

But John McCain can now go around for a few days on the news cycle advocating for War, which he loves to do. Oh, and the "Nuclear Option" looks to be pulled on Friday, so Trump needs the GOPe feeling good. They're trained to respond the same way and Trump threw out some red meat to them. Doesn't mean he's going to change policy.

Now, on the bigger strategic level, Trump is also going to be selling a change to US Foreign Policy. "Clear and Hold" and "Safe Zones" are roughly the terms to watch out for. I've seen it crop up a few places, but if we get involved in a place, expect us to handle "refugees" by establishing Safe Zones. It's not like we don't have "little green men" active all over the place, so it's really a shift from funding rebels to doing specific things to prevent other, larger crisis from happening.

It also so happens that after IS-IS becomes WAS-WAS, Trump can claim victory and completely disengage us from Syria. Suddenly the Globalists, who've put so much effort into the situation are in a bind since we "won" and we're done. There's still a Deep State War going on across the globe. This is just another Battle with in.

I sometimes find it hard to believe how quickly some people (even here where they daily point out the constant stream of lies and bullshit coming from basically all media) can swing from euphoria to defeatism based on nothing more than some words from the media.

We're in this for the long haul, gents. I suggest that you find your steel and learn to maintain it regardless of what "news" may come.

FFS, you guys are always going on about Alpha this and Alpha that, it's long past time to put some will behind the words and man up.

The entire goddamned world is going to try to demoralize you so that you'll give up the fight.

Instead of hand wringing and whinging, use these small bullshit events to perfect your form for laughing in their faces.

I'm not talking about SJW faux laughter either, I mean honest to God damn-the-torpedos zero-fucks-given laughter. You have to mean it; to for-real believe it.

Nothing they say or do in the media matters if we maintain our steel and will to fight when it DOES.

Once reasonable people of all political flavors have -- together -- tasted the victory of getting a critical mass of the US population to see past the propaganda of the Deep State, real productive dialog on the other issues will come much more easily.

The victims weren't civillians. They were anti-Assad terrorists who fomented armed rebellion against the Syrian government and who the UN says already have used chemical weapons against Syrian government forces.

The deaths of children are always lamentable. But Assad did not put the kids in that situation. Put blame where blame is most due: with their rebel fathers who sought armed overthrow of tge Assad regime and colluded with Al Qaeda to do it.

Altright fan fiction... After a week or so of tweets and other hints building up suspense that Trump would make some sort of apology and admission regarding fake news in light of reports coming out of Syria alleging a gas attack, the God-Emperor held a press confence that came to be known as The Deportation of the Press. In a tour de force presentation, featuring expert testimony and thousands of documents and videos linked and presented online, Trump and his officials proved beyond a reasonable doubt that both the 2013 and 2017 Syrian incidents were false flag operations and, hence, fake news. HIs advisors named names. Trump summed up by "apologizing" for joining in the early April fake news condemnation of Assad and the legitimate Syrian government. Several main stream journalists were, in fact, seized and deported within days and several media outlets significantly revised their staffs and policies. The leading morning news show, Morning Joe on MSNBC, was canceled by July. Trump's foreign policy never looked back.

Didn't the neocons try this chemical weapons hoax once before with Assad? They're running out of ideas.

But “muh children”……

War sucks, people die horribly, young, old, women, men, war does not discriminate. We should be broadcasting live and in full color the live action of people being blown apart, perhaps then the average joe might rethink allowing the deepstate to run war as a racket for personal enrichment.

If you really want war you should also be completely honest with yourself that it will be brutal and messy, you can’t put nice little boxes in place saying who can be killed and how. Everyone loves thermobarics now, do you know how those kill? They collapse your lungs then crush your organs with the over pressure. If you are really unlucky you are on the edge of the blast and inhale the burning fuel so that your lungs collapse as the fuel burns inside of them but the overpressure doesn’t kill you, so you are briefly alive and suffocating while your lungs are literally burning inside your body….

Chemical weapons are irrelevant compared to every other major weapon on the battlefield. They are “emotional” weapons that are generally ineffective at killing people efficiently. But if you really want to go this route we need to declare war or Israel immediately for using white phosphorus on the Palestinians in Gaza, direct use of white phosphorus on people is a chemical weapon attack just more effective then gas. White phosphorus burns you alive and there is no way to put it out once you are exposed….. look up those photos from Gaza…

Why is it that the idiots who have no concept of what war is and its true horrors, are the ones always calling for it?

Anonymous Grayman April 06, 2017 9:53 AM  

The claims of chemical weapons are old and tired. You can have a NBC specialist (soldier trained in nuclear/biological/chemical) in the field testing the "victims" for residue using a mass spectrometer (the size of a small briefcase) which is the gold standard for identifying substances, in less than 24hrs.
Of course they wont do that or publish that as it would blow up their narrative.

Well, Mr. (((Shapiro))), it sounds like you're using "muh feelz" as the sole guide for policy when you say "some things are automatically cause for war." WHY are they automatically cause for war? Because they bother you unreasonably?

The rest of the world doesn't give a flea's flatulence what becomes of us, individually, in groups, or collectively. What is the deep need for us to police the behavior the entire rest of the world instead of letting them carry on however they choose and worry about our own business instead?

Humans are violent and warlike. In fact, they NEED to be in order to survive around the deadliest possible competitor, other sapients. Someone somewhere is always going to be kicking in someone else's teeth. It has always been this way, it will always be this way.

What you're asking is that the USA act as the de facto world government and police everybody else. This is precisely the formula that leads to "invade the world, invite the world," which is a rolling disaster.

Our last intervention, in Iraq, removed a secular dictator who was content to sit there ruling over his barbaric, heavily-armed tribesmen, and allowed the expansionist fanatic nuts of ISIS to establish themselves.

The Law of Unintended Consequences operates unceasingly. Your plan has us plowing into Syria instead of worrying about our own home problems, which are manifold and potentially ruinous, and possibly starting World War III with Russia, because YOU feel the need to "automatically trigger war" (fought and died in by other people than your precious, sanctimonious self, of course) when some people WHO AREN'T OUR RESPONSIBILITY may or may not have been gassed, quite possibly by their own side through an accidental release of chemical weapons in a depot hit by Assad's aircraft. What revolting, stupid, suicidal, saccharine humbug.

You have demonstrated previously you don't give a tourette's sufferer's damn whether hundreds of thousands of Russians, including babies and old women, get incinerated, Stephen.

re: Cail Corishev's response to @167. Yes, in general you can't trust a neocon. The Tea Party, or some of its originals, too late came to realize this after their movement was co-opted by "rightish" interventionists.
A few of the Johnny-come-lately neocons are coming to see the light about the Deep State -- but this is my point-- a significant number of paleo-liberals are ALREADY there.

I don't know whether or not Davenport above is a lying neocon, but if he is a paleoliberal, his recoil from comments like "nobody gives a damn about Syrian babies" comes from sincerely held beliefs.

As to how such commenters are "welcomed" here, what if Snidely "You're a Moron!" Whiplash's comment to Davenport were to go beyond the charge of selectively caring about Russian babies, and instead included an explanation of how his reasonable concern about the plight of Syrian babies is actually SUPPORTED by a refusal to say no to the neocons' desire to ramp up a proxy war with Russia in Syria-- and all its attendant civilian casualties.

Great, then they'll fit right in. Perhaps they are already among us and contributing. No one checked my background when I first joined, as far as I know.

I sense that's not what you're after, though. I sense that you want us to reach out to them somehow, or change in some way to be more "welcoming." That's not going to happen. That way lies SJW entryism. If they're offended by something they see in us, they'll just have to get over it. If a recovering liberal is attracted to the Alt-Right but lets a blunt or abrasive blog comment drive him away, I daresay he wasn't ready for the truth yet, but perhaps he'll toughen up and get there.
