The Swamp vs Trump

The old adage in business is to surround yourself with those people who are strong where you are weak. That being said, Trump’s supreme strength is securing business deals. On that front he has continually won the game since assuming office. The military, foreign policy, NSA, FBI, those positions were supposed to be managed by the best of the best without micro-management.   Trump gave each office their rein, some took it and ran, other’s seemed lost, and still other’s fell on their face.

Trump’s presumption that if a person is knowledgeable, educated, experienced, and acclaimed, then they also have integrity and are a valuable asset proved to be at fault. That presumption has proven to be his biggest weakness. Initially, that weakness was micro-managed by Steve Bannon, a powerhouse with seniority, maturity and insight.   The baton was passed to Jared Kushner, and since then Trump has consistently been on the defensive.

While defensive moves are important, they don’t win the game. Not in chess, not on the battlefield, not in football.

Kushner himself has maintained a low profile, but it is his job to keep Trump on task and out of the feuding frenzy. It could be that Trump is less inclined to be managed by his son-in-law, or by someone who is merely 36, but this was his choice and he needs to abide by that choice.

The mainstream media, most specifically, Washington Post, NY Times and CNN, have taken up the position that they are more qualified and astute as to how this country should be run. They have presumably taken over the role of governing the United States, telling us what we want, how we want it and when we want it.  As in now, this second.

Everyone; conservative, progressive, green, liberal, feel obliged to tell Trump and his appointees how to manage their duties and what they did ‘wrong’. I include myself in that fray of holier than thou.   Karl Rove…”this is what Trump should have done…”   Ann Coulter… “Trump isn’t the ruthless business man that we were promised…”

But he is!   He is when negotiating business deals with ‘business men’. But the Swamp isn’t a Board Room, it is a corrupted greedy swamp filled with misanthropic narcissistic alligators.   They don’t operate from a platform of logic or integrity or respect, they operate for exactly one purpose, getting re-elected so they can continue to live in the swamp.  Trump presumed they were better than they are in truth.

They love to talk about how little they are paid but oddly seem to leave Washington with bank accounts crammed with millions and homes well into the millions.   And of course their tax returns are a ‘private matter’.

So while Trump is negotiating more business deals, maybe a chill-pill is the order of the day for all of us.

I don’t agree with a lot of President Trump’s decisions of late, on the other hand, he is privy to information that I/we don’t have and it is safe to say that once a President is ‘briefed’, no matter their platform or policies or party, a shift takes place.

In that, Trump chose to focus on what he knows best – business. According to polls and the press on both sides of the spectrum, Jobs was the Number One agenda rated by The People for consideration – and Trump complied.  Everything takes time. Patience.  It took Obama 7 years to give us Obamacare – and it was and is a proverbial Mess.

The Wall? Tax Reform? New Healthcare? They were all a part of the Pill, but don’t forget, Jobs was first on the list of The People.   As a computer generation we are ingrained with the demand that everything happen immediately.  But in the real world, in business, that just ain’t so and never has been.  So stop complaining, we wanted a savvy businessman, and that’s exactly what we got.

The Swamp?  Vote them out.  

Trump – Blackmail or Threats by NWO?

When something smells ‘fishy’ it is usually because it stinks!

In 2009, Soros gave an interview in which he claimed that in order to have a New World Order, the only way to bring China into it would be to put them at the helm. Or at least, have them think they were at the helm. Because China is only opposed if they are not the Holy Grail.

In 2016, Putin kicked out the Rothschild cabal from ever entering Russia again. Soros already had a Russian bounty on his head, but with the unmasking and proverbial boot given the Rothschild’s, Russia became a lost cause, albeit a source of vilification.

One of Soros major concerns in instituting the New World Order, was a Russia – China alliance that could disembowel the entire writings of the New World Order according to Garp. Dismantling that relationship could potentially take one of two forms;   1) vilify Russia to the point that a China relationship will hurt China’s economy, or 2) create a new relationship with China to lure it away from one with Russia.

With the election turning topsy-turvy on the Soros Cabal, vilifying and denigrating Trump wasn’t having the effect that they wanted. Trump’s anti-China and Pro-Russia stance had the ability to completely destroy decades upon decades of hard work. And then – suddenly We The People witness a dramatic change, a different Trump, and a flipped rhetoric.

What Happened?  

Suddenly, despite Trump’s previous adamant campaign proclamations, not only is China now our good buddy and Russia the arch villain, but the banking cabal of the Rothschild’s is upheld with Yellen remaining at the helm of the Federal Reserve.  OUCH!

Something happened.  Either Trump has been blackmailed – or he has been threatened. The New World Order has a way of finding the leverage it needs to accomplish it’s task whether it be simple assassination, or the gifting of a person’s ‘dreams’.   But coercion is an absolute.

For McCain that dream would appear to be a beautiful wealthy wife who would never divorce him no matter ‘what’ he might do. He is assured of the doting young thing and surrounded by wealth.

For Obama it was fame! He lavishes the limelight – book publications, Hollywood, television, center-stage these are his dreams – not his father…

With the about face of Trump, and his sudden lacking normal intensity, I would hypothesize that his blackmail was more of a threat of harm than a gift of his ‘dream’.   An Either – Or, scenario. The alligators came out of the Swamp.

It is worth noting that since that ‘Either-Or’ took effect, the media have been relatively silent, the frontpage bashing, the fifteen deplorable articles per page have been nearly eliminated and in some instances replaced with praises and pansies.     The ogre portrayals have lightened and even the evening news is light on Trump and heavy on world affairs.

Even the photos of Trump reflect a change, no longer is he raising Hell, he appears more like he is ready to cry. ;  as in he got – whooped.   Politico, a quite Liberal outlet is claiming he is Clintonian. And praise is lavished on Kushner, the same Kushner who went over Bannon’s head and called for the missile strikes on Syria and for more implications of Russian complicity.

Backing NATO, backing Yellen, backing China, vilifying Russia, bombing Syria, harboring Comey, and silent on charges against Obama and Hillary over the ‘eavesdropping’, all bear witness to the defeat of glory at the hands of an undeniable, indefinable ‘threat’.

While it feels eerily like The Body Snatchers, in reality, blackmail and/or threats are more the Swamp modus aperendi.  In the end – it does not bode well…
