Congrats to Both Putin and Trump: Equal Partners at Last!
It’s unfortunate that MSM knows so little about the nature of foreign policy and personality types. In addition, MSM has no basic intellectual underpinning as to how real American foreign policy is made. Instead, they enter into a phantasy land of speculation, inference, and highly distorted conclusions.
Ignorance is prevalent in the media. It’s part and parcel of their zeitgeist. Unlike the famous reporters of yesteryear: Scottie Reston, David Binder, Walter Cronkite etc today’s editors schooled in journalism have absolutely no basis to evaluate a meeting between two major leaders [read personalities] like Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. Instead they resort to rumors and implied distortions, specifically fabricated for the mainstream media.
How do I know?
Back in the day, I was an expert at manipulating the mainstream media! Senior reporters would interview me after a major event like the Aldo Moro Kidnapping, implying a certain outcome. I would then feed that particular disingenuous reporter [NY Times] all the nonsense he had wanted to hear. Only years later was his story completely nullified by my own final admission that “I had purposefully misled the press” to serve my [USG] at that time. This type of dual encounter would occur often. Each time, I would spend some time studying the reporter’s hidden agenda and then I played into it as much as I needed in order accede to his initial demands, setting him up for a final embarrassment.
Both Putin and Trump are masters of manipulating the lay media. They play along and then they ‘honey trap’ the reporters. Eventually, both the newspaper and the reporter appear both foolish and incompetent.
In the world of intelligence, the American media is an artifact of highly contrived narratives often described as ‘professional journalism’ [Academia]. Nothing could be further from the truth! Let’s examine a few choice examples.
- In the case of 9/11, we know very well that the media was purposefully co-opted by the unique American juggernaut: military/civilian/intelligence agencies.
- Ongoing we have the draft-dodging-neocons who linger in the morass of discontent and ignominy, screamed about the barbarity of Putin/Russia when it annexed it’s natural contiguous land mass –Crimea. Still now, the press has no knowledge about the fact that we, American officials, had promised Russia it’s natural port in the Crimea when we had taken down the Soviet Union.
Now Trump will do what he has always done well. He will assess the merits of Putin and embrace him as an equal colleague on the international stage. This grants Russia, a gigantic land mass of eleven times zones, the status and recognition she has long deserved.
As for the class picture of the G-20 countries arranged by the brilliant Angela Merkel, she and her colleagues will long be forgotten while America maintains its resurgence in the financial, military, and civilian arenas of the world. Meanwhile the EU will devolve from centralized power as quickly as possible. France and Germany will regret the fact that they had made an unholy alliance through the fragile ether entitled ‘the Euro-Market’.
Waiting on the EU dismal horizon are the following inevitabilities:
- Independence of Catalonia from Spain
- Four bankruptcies of Greece
- Italian and Portugal’s eventual bank failures
- The dismemberment of other nation states.
As for America, we will continue to be the dominant financial and military power in the world for a few more decades. China will have to wait its turn until the Belt and Road Initiative is built, if at all. Russia will become a major military/trading partner of the USA. And the G20 Summit photo will dissolve into oblivion.
The famous German writer/poet Heinrich Heine wrote the following:
“When the heroes go off stage, the clowns come on.”
Please applaud Merkel and the G-20!!
