Can RFK Jr. Defeat the Media?
I wrote him in in 2020 to send a message. This time it's serious.
Kevin Barrett • April 9, 2023

I like Barret. Sometimes he's whackadoodle, but long before anyone else he was spot-on about the USA supporting radical jihadists in Syria. I gotta love him for that.

Quote:

J. Michael Springmann and I opened this week’s False Flag Weekly News by plugging RFK Jr.’s newly-minted presidential campaign. We noted that he is going to have to run against the media, like Donald Trump did in 2016.

Running against the media in politics is like betting against the house in gambling: The odds are against you, to say the least. I know that from personal experience, having run for Congress on a 9/11 truth platform in 2008. But it isn’t just me: There are countless examples of campaigns whose outcomes were determined by the media’s slanted coverage. (To cite an extreme example, big media’s decision to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story likely prevented Donald Trump from being re-elected in 2020.)

An obvious example that everyone knows about but the M$M prefers to bury it.

Quote:

The power of the mainstream media is such that almost no serious politicians—people whose goal is to win, not just to make a statement or call attention to neglected issues, as I did in my 2008 run—ever dare to take any positions or voice any sentiments outside of the media’s Overton Window of acceptability. The major exception to that rule, of course, is Donald Trump, who defeated the media in his 2016 run for president.

Trump’s method was deceptively simple: Keep saying outrageous things that the media won’t be able to resist deriding and deploring and generally calling attention to. Lo and behold, the hoary bromide “any publicity is good publicity” came true. Trump recognized that a yu-uge tranche of voters was angry and alienated and ready to support someone the Establishment obviously hated. And since he had a Twitter account at hand to tweet his side of the story, Trump wasn’t handicapped like pre-social-media politicians, who had depended almost entirely on corporate-owned one-to-many media to communicate with voters. What’s more, turning his rallies into countercultural festivals allowed him to speak directly to throngs of people. Between Twitter and the Trump rallies, it became obvious that the media’s most important way of suppressing outside-the-Overton-Window candidacies—fostering the impression that only a tiny, widely-hated minority of fringe conspiracy theorists would ever say or believe such things—wasn’t going to work.

Trump composed his triumphant 2016 electoral symphony in the key of invective, scapegoating, demonization, and hatred (or “righteous anger” if you prefer, though not all of it was righteous). His needling and insults, which included allusions to the alleged complicity of George W. Bush in 9/11 and Ted Cruz’s father in the JFK assassination, were refreshing to those of us who have discovered the almost unimaginable corruption of the American political establishment. And his harsh treatment of Hillary Clinton, who on October 9th 2016 was forced to debate Trump with three of her husband Bill’s sexual assault victims glaring at her from the audience, and who cannot have been pleased by the tens of thousands of people at Trump rallies chanting “lock her up,” may not have been chivalrous, but it was effective.

Trump did not keep his promises. He didn’t lock her up. And he didn’t drain the swamp—he stocked it. His administration offered no meaningful change, except for completely surrendering to the ultra-extremist Zionist agenda of Bibi Netanyahu. Trump failed to withdraw from Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan. He didn’t terminate NATO, but instead armed Ukraine to the teeth and set the stage for the current war on Russia. His administration nearly started World War III three times: once by bombing Syria, once by murdering Gen. Soleimani, and once by attacking Wuhan and Qom with the bioweapon known as COVID-19.

Though he failed to even attempt to dismantle the Establishment, Trump’s erratic words and behavior made him a destabilizing factor, so the consensus of the oligarchs was that he had to go.

To defeat Trump in 2020, the media and its oligarch owners had to go full-totalitarian. They began by spreading the lie that Trump had been elected because Russia had somehow taken over the internet. That provided the excuse the Establishment needed to impose a draconian regime of internet censorship that would have been unthinkable just a few years earlier. Then the COVID-19 pandemic was used to further stampede public opinion into tolerating the near-total destruction of meaningful internet freedom. In the wake of the 2020 election, a new, freedom-free information regime was erected over the smoldering ruins of the Trump Administration (and the First Amendment).


Trump’s entire project turned out to be suspiciously convenient for the oligarchy he supposedly hates. Thanks to Trump, they got what they want: More war, more wealth transfer from bottom-to-top, draconian internet censorship, and a hyperpolarized nation full of angry people fighting about things the oligarchy doesn’t really care about. As Sam Husseini keeps telling us, it sure looks like Trump is the opposable thumb of the Establishment.

So did Trump accomplish anything positive? Yes: He showed it’s possible to run against the media and win. Let’s hope and pray that lightning strikes twice, and that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. can pull off the same trick.

How RFK Jr.’s Run Against the Media Will Differ from Trump’s

RFK Jr. enters the 2024 presidential race far more hated by the media than Donald Trump was at the beginning of his 2016 campaign. Before that campaign, Trump was cast as a relatively benign buffoon, a rich talk show host with a bloated ego who might add some entertainment value and boost ratings but who had no realistic chance of winning. The fact that the Establishment “misunderestimated” Trump allowed him to sneak up on them. By the time they knew what hit them, it was too late.

RFK Jr., unlike the pre-2016 Trump, is a known threat to the hyper-corrupt wing of the oligarchical Establishment. He carries the mythic Kennedy name, with all the baggage that implies. He has repeatedly made it clear that he knows the Establishment murdered his uncle and father to terminate/prevent their presidencies. There is absolutely no chance that he is going to sneak up on anybody.


Today’s communications environment, especially the internet, is not nearly as free as it was in 2016. The great majority of Democratic voters have been subjected to trauma-based mind control and accept the new COVID-era mantra “misinformation kills millions.” RFK Jr. has been endlessly and mendaciously slandered by the media as one of the “misinformation purveyors” who deserves to be censored because he is guilty of killing millions of innocent people. (In fact, RFK Jr.’s views on COVID and vaccine issues are quite moderate and in line with the best scientific evidence, but try telling that to a pack of hysterical witch-hunters.)

So compared to Trump in 2016, RFK Jr.’s 2024 run begins by finding itself behind the proverbial 8-ball. Just days after his announcement, the media has already ganged up on him. More and worse will surely follow.

So is there even a ghost of a chance that he could win? A superficial overview suggests it’s almost unthinkable. But allowing for the possibility of surprisingly rapid changes in public opinion—a phenomenon for which there is some precedent—I submit that RFK Jr. could conceivably pull off a miracle along the lines of what his uncle John nearly accomplished in 1963.

James Douglas’s JFK and the Unspeakable (among other sources) makes clear the astounding shift in public opinion, and to some extent electoral politics, that JFK somehow inspired beginning with his American University speech on June 10, 1963.

JFK managed to push through the Limited Nuclear Test Ban treaty during the summer and fall of 1963 in the face of initially overwhelming opposition from the Establishment and its media. Public opinion, too, began as hawkish and anti-treaty. But by appealing to people’s better nature, and mobilizing his charisma to inspire, JFK first swung public opinion, then Congress. He signed the Treaty on October 7, 1963, six weeks before he was murdered in a coup d’état.

If RFK Jr. is to have a chance at winning the presidency, he will need to emulate his uncle’s summer-of-1963 miracle by inspiring a radical shift in public opinion through a charismatic appeal to people’s better natures. To do so, he’ll have to employ the polar opposite approach from the one Trump used against the media in 2016: Instead of fighting back with nasty invective and scapegoating, Bobby will need to return love for hate, return truth for lies, and relentlessly focus on the positive and inspirational while the media piles on with its negativity and cynicism.

Could that actually work? Yes, it might. Just as people were sick of the media’s anodyne bullshit in 2016 and found Trump’s verbal aggression refreshing, today more and more of us are sick of not only the lies, which grow more outrageous every year, but also the complete lack of any idealistic or inspirational vision. The media, including social media, have put us in “permanent emergency” mode in which the world is always about to end: whether it’s the Ukraine quagmire spiraling inevitably into bankruptcy and/or nuclear war, or the COVID or 9/11 emergencies that will never really be over, or the threats of runaway A.I. or toxic train crashes or climate change or white supremacism or crime or the oppression of trannies or the even worse oppression of anti-trannies or what-have-you, it’s all one big stew of disasters and feel-bad stories without the slightest hint of any visionary transcendence of the mass-mediated depiction of unfolding ultra-polarized horror. To get that transcendence, we would need to move beyond the polarization and step outside the media’s imposed Overton Window and consider the various problems, and possible solutions, from an entirely new, hopeful perspective.

What are America's interests? Because yes, Virginia, there really is a Santa Claus America, altho half of its citizens seems to have forgotten that!

Quote:

And if anyone is the man for the job, it’s RFK Jr. Besides the “vision thing” that comes with the Kennedy name, he embodies a refreshingly non-polarized perspective. Though a Democrat, his critical thinking and activism on vaccine and COVID issues resonates more with Republicans. And he wisely avoids entanglement with the oddities of gender ideology and cultural Marxism in general, instead trying to find common ground with the sensible middle. As he told The Epoch Times:

“America is enduring an apocalyptic tribal polarization more toxic and dangerous than any time since the Civil War. And while Democrats battle Republicans, elites are strip-mining our middle class, poisoning our children, and commoditizing our landscapes.

“I will focus my campaign, not on the issues that divide us but the values we have in common.”

Good fuckin' luck, buddy!

Quote:

Wow. That’s crazy enough that it just might work.

And the fact that he’s running against an ever-more-decrepit-looking “Sleepy Joe” Biden, just as the economy will be heading seriously south, just adds to the impression that anything could happen.

By now I’m sure many readers are thinking: But even if Bobby pulls off the kind of miracle you’re suggesting, and somehow becomes what the bad guys will consider an actionable threat to assume the Oval Office, won’t those same bad guys just whack him the way they whacked his dad and his uncle (not to mention his cousin)?

That’s obviously a possibility. But to my way of thinking, it just adds to the aura of courage and heroism that surrounds his decision to run for president. To shrink from supporting him wholeheartedly because he might be murdered would be churlish. If he’s willing to put his life on the line, the least a decent person can do is line up behind him.

And one more thing: This time around, the bad guys lack the element of surprise. In 1963, hardly anybody could imagine the possibility of a blood-soaked coup in America—much less that the CIA-Mossad interface and their mafia and media assets were in such a strong position to pull it off and cover it up. Even in 1968, after Mark Lane and Jim Garrison among others had spread the news about 1963 to a certain extent, the vast majority of Americans couldn’t really grasp the enormity of what just happened in the Ambassador Hotel.

So just as RFK Jr. won’t be able to sneak up on the Establishment the way Trump did in 2016, the Establishment likewise won’t enjoy the element of surprise if some of its members decide to violently terminate or prevent the presidency of yet another Kennedy. And the more support he has from people who know the score, the harder it will be for them to think they can get away with it.

RFK Jr.’s run for president is admittedly a long shot. But whether or not you think he has a chance, his campaign (join it HERE) is by far the most positive current development in American politics.

The far left and far right agree on Donald Trump’s foreign policy legacy. They’re both wrong.

The emerging revisionist history says Trump was an “anti-imperial” president. Don’t believe it.

By Zack Beauchamp Apr 14, 2023

Historically, American warmongering has been very different from what dominated in either the 2000s or the liberal interventionist 1990s. For centuries, American leaders have demonstrated a willingness to inflict violence on foreigners not in pursuit of any universal ideology, but a narrow vision of expanding the country’s territory and advancing the national interest. Such purportedly “realist” thinking is behind many of America’s most infamous atrocities, from Native genocide to the intentional slaughter of civilians during the Vietnam War.

It is also directly echoed by Trump in both word and deed. This is a president who pardoned convicted war criminals, assassinated Iran’s top general, and deployed troops to seize Syria’s oil deposits — openly admitting he wanted to hand them over to ExxonMobil. A second term promises more of the same: He has already asked advisers for “battle plans” to invade Mexico in an effort to combat drug cartels.

2) invented "Satan" to explain away their self-caused problems/addictions/diseases/crimes

3) blame "George Soros and the Jews" or "The Powers That Be" or "Democrats" to remove blame from themselves and transfer it to others who are not supernatural like "Satan" and therefore can be attacked in the physical world.

6ix, reality will NEVER bend to the above three nonsensical beliefs you Trumptards hold in your minds and have built your whole lives on. You Trumptards have behaved atrociously, foolishly and, much delayed because you live in America where people like you are partially protected from your own nonsense, reality is now gonna screw you back for what you did wrong, wrong, wrong.

In 2017, Trump became the first US president to order an attack on the Syrian government, bombing an airfield in retaliation for chemical weapons strikes, something Obama famously refused to do. In 2018, he pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal and bombed Syrian government positions again. In 2019, Trump approved airstrikes on Iranian soil, only to call the planes back literally while they were in the air. And in 2020, he had General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran’s elite Quds force, assassinated while the Iranian leader was near the Baghdad airport.

Similarly, Trump dramatically increased US airstrikes on Islamist groups in Somalia over Obama levels, and approved the sale of unguided “dumb” bombs to Saudi Arabia for use in Yemen (something the Obama administration blocked). Though Trump frequently stated his opposition to the war in Afghanistan, and eventually did negotiate a withdrawal agreement, he began his presidency by escalating it — sending 3,000 new troops to fight the Taliban, a more than 25 percent increase from the pre-Trump presence. He also openly bragged about relaxing rules of engagement for bombings in Afghanistan, a policy that nearly doubled civilian casualties per year over the Bush- and Obama-era average.

In 2017, before he became friends with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, Trump nearly started a war with his country — deploying an “armada” (his words) to the region, and threatening the North with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” in the midst of mounting tensions surrounding Pyongyang’s nuclear program.

In 2018, Trump threatened to invade Venezuela to topple leftist dictator Nicolás Maduro. In 2019, he launched a broad-based sanction policy explicitly designed to collapse the Maduro government — an open regime change operation.

"Joe Biden Is A Criminal" Says Ex-Obama Whistleblower Alleging Family "Kickback Scheme"

Friday, Apr 14, 2023 - 06:05 AM

A former staffer who worked in the Obama administration is blowing the whistle on the Bidens - and has accused President Biden of being involved in a "kickback scheme" directly related to his son Hunter's overseas business dealings.

Mike McCormick, a stenographer in the White House for 15 years who worked with Biden from 2011 to 2017, told Fox & Friends First that the FBI has completely ignored him despite his willingness to testify under oath before the grand jury investigating Hunter.



According to the poor computer repair guy who repaired Hunter's laptop, it was the same story with him: he tried to turn it over to the FBI, but their only interest in it was burying it.

It’s not for nothing that Trump hung a portrait of Jackson in the Oval Office: His Jacksonian policy was not “dovish” or “anti-imperial,” but rather just a different kind of imperial enterprise. In 1814, then-General Jackson launched an invasion of Creek lands in present-day Alabama — forcing the tribe to cede 20 million acres to the US government. This willingness to use force to promote America’s national interests, regardless of the consequences for foreign civilians, is a hallmark of Jacksonian foreign policy and warfighting.

It is this spirit — America First, and all else be damned — that animated Trump’s foreign policy while in office. He didn’t oppose war or American empire; he opposed the notion that American empire might benefit anyone other than America. It’s foreign policy realism of a kind: not the pristine theory formulated by international relations scholars, but a practical realism that sees the world as a harsh place and America’s role in it as looking out for number one without any regard for numbers two through infinity.

On this line of thinking, NATO is not a tool of collective defense but an extortion racket the US can use to extract tribute from its European vassals. The Middle East is not a place for idealistic pro-democracy crusades, but one where US troops can claim oil for development by American corporations.

His weight signals that he has lost control of himself. Trump lost control of himself: "Finally, I will require every federal employee to pass a new civil service test demonstrating an understanding of our constitutional limited government. This will include command of due process rights, equal protection, free speech, religious liberty, federalism, the Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure – I know all about that at Mar-a-Lago, don't I – and all other constitutional limits on federal power," Trump said. "We will put unelected bureaucrats back in their place, liberate the US economy, and attract millions of jobs and trillions of dollars to our shores. Thank you very much."

Trump issued a new statement on Friday vowing that if he is reelected, he will force public servants to pass a politically-themed loyalty test or face termination. Do you know who else required a loyalty test when he was head of government in a European country? His last name starts with an "H". He was a Hit with a certain kind of European citizen.

HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR WARNS AMERICA ABOUT TRUMPISM:

"America today feels like 1929 or 1930 Berlin. Things that couldn't be said five years ago in public are now normal discourse. It's totally unacceptable. Trump is an enabler. He's a sick, very disturbed individual. Appeasement of fascism is what led to everything." - Stephen B. Jacobs, Buchenwald concentration camp survivor

The thing that all Trumptards get wrong is "freedom". Trumptard "Freedom" is to get drunk or just dump their waste CO2 into the air and lie about climate consequences because paying for what Trumptards do is not something they'd do if they were free to do what pleases them. Trumptards practice that kind of "freedom". Then they lie about what they did. Being decent and honest and self-controlled is defined as "tyranny" to Trumptards. Trumptards have defined "freedom" in a special way because they are retards.

You placed your grubby hands on the ultimate human conflict: bad guys think they are good guys and words won't sway them to reconsider who is actually good. Real life example: the Confederates went on a murder-rampage against Lincoln and the Northern States because the slave-owning Confederates were absolutely certain that they were morally superior to those degenerate abolitionists. (That allowed many people in the North to say they didn't care much for either side. They wanted peace between North and South and they absolutely didn't care how they got peace so long as nobody could force them to think clearly about slavery. Lincoln had that very problem with his wife, Mary, and quite a few of his generals, Union general George B. McClellan in particular.)

Every person I know who has a good opinion of Confederates also voted for Trump. The Confederates were horrified that abolitionists took up arms against the masters who were so loving and kind to their slaves. Horrified at how depraved abolitionists could be, giving false testimony against enlightened slave owners. And don't get today's Confederate sympathizers going about how ungrateful the slaves were and how extremely ungrateful are the descendants of slaves today. The masters spent vast sums of money feeding, clothing, and sheltering a sullen slave workforce, yet the masters never received proper thanks from the slaves. Where are today's reparations for slave owners who lost their property? I have heard that question from many Trump voters.

"Joe Biden Is A Criminal" Says Ex-Obama Whistleblower Alleging Family "Kickback Scheme"

Friday, Apr 14, 2023 - 06:05 AM

A former staffer who worked in the Obama administration is blowing the whistle on the Bidens - and has accused President Biden of being involved in a "kickback scheme" directly related to his son Hunter's overseas business dealings.

Mike McCormick, a stenographer in the White House for 15 years who worked with Biden from 2011 to 2017, told Fox & Friends First that the FBI has completely ignored him despite his willingness to testify under oath before the grand jury investigating Hunter.



According to the poor computer repair guy who repaired Hunter's laptop, it was the same story with him: he tried to turn it over to the FBI, but their only interest in it was burying it.






Hunter Biden, Hunter Biden, Hunter Biden. I've always said if he did something wrong then let the chips fall where they will. Still, Bill Barr, Trumps loyalist top cop had years to get to the bottom of this. Barr and his hand picked prosecutor also had years to prove the Mueller investigation was corrupt. What did they find, nothing. In the meantime, Trump and his cronies are, have been, and will continue to be indicted. Did you hear Trump was indicted? Laughing again comrade, laughing.

And your source comrade is zerohedge, which is why you didn't post it. Sad signym, you are just sad.

"It may be dangerous to be America's enemy, but to be America's friend is fatal." - Henry Kissinger


The November 2024 election will be the ultimate clash between good and evil. Both sides think they are good, but one is very mistaken. The election will be Biblical! The Bible, as every Sunday-school student learns, has a Hollywood ending. Not a happy ending, certainly, but one where all the dramatic plot points left open earlier, to the whispered uncertainty of the audience (“I don’t get it—when did he say he was coming back?”), are resolved in a rush, and a final, climactic confrontation between the stern-lipped action hero and the really bad guys takes place. That ending—the Book of Revelation—has every element that Michael Bay could want: dragons, seven-headed sea beasts, double-horned land beasts, huge C.G.I.-style battles involving hundreds of thousands of angels and demons, and even, in Jezebel the temptress, a part for Megan Fox. (“And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.”) Although Revelation got into the canonical Bible only by the skin of its teeth—it did poorly in previews, and was buried by the Apostolic suits until one key exec favored its release—it has always been a pop hit. Everybody reads Revelation; everybody gets excited about it; and generations of readers have insisted that it might even be telling the truth about what’s coming for Christmas.

I did look for an alternative source. Only the far right was pushing the story. Even if true, it's lost on no one that the “House Oversight investigating $2B Saudi investment in Jared Kushner's firm. Kushner formed an investment firm right after Trump left office, and six months later, the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia, controlled by the crown prince, invested $2 billion."

It is also true Kushner had zero experience in the business he started. Quite a leap of faith there by the crowned prince that Jared, who had zero experience would be the best place to invest $2 billion. Instead of course, in companies who had decades of experience. Companies he was already familiar with. Wouldn't you say comrade?

The fact that I've posted the crimes Trump and Russia were, had and are committing, only to have you ignore and dispute them shows you aren’t interested in the truth.

Vote for Republicans because “Congressman proves global warming scare is just silly.”

'What Percent Of Our Atmosphere Is CO2?': Doug LaMalfa Stumps Entire Panel With Climate Questions



House Transportation Committee Holds Hearings On Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

…..in which Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) gives master class in lying without telling a single lie . . . all in a calm and reasonable voice.

He asks the panel: What percent of our Atmosphere is CO2?

They don’t know. He presses them to guess. They guess 5%, 7%, 8%.

He tells them the answer is 0.04%.

They are stunned.

Why that’s just too small to have to worry about!

I just wanted to mention that all this depends on the complete ignorance of the people, the panelists, and especially the online commenters who believe the congressman has just proved how silly the whole climate change hoax is. He has saved the country from the ignorance of those who want to save us from a meaningless level of carbon dioxide.

He continues in a quiet and reasonable voice,”I just wanted to underline this as we get all giddy about making everything electric. Especially when they are taking out power grids and shutting down dams and barely avoided closing the nuclear plant” “ as a farmer I wouldn’t be happy to be running out and replacing a million dollar piece of equipment because someone wants it to be electric.” “contorted into doing tiny change in CO2.” “if we get below .02 plant life starts to die off”. “why would anyone be changing out all that equipment you’ve been upgrading?” “all this all that”

All of his terrible examples assume no one is going to build the grid, or that the nuke doesn’t need to be closed for reasons having nothing to do with changing to electric vehicles, and no one is going to make you throw away your brand new farm equipment, though you may want to replace it when it is worn out with more efficient electric farm equipment, after the grid brings electricity to your farm (something FDR did in the thirties which the LaMalfa’s at the time called “socialism”).

0.04% is a pretty small number. Can’t have any importance in the real world. Small numbers are like that. you don’t have to pay attention to them.

0.0003% of potassium cyanide in your body will kill you instantly, but that’s a hundred times less than the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere so you don’t have to worry about it. Right?

Note that he gives himself away: “if it gets down to .02% plant life will start to die off.” Apparently a small change (0.02% is half of 0.04%) can make a big difference. But no one noticed.

Vote for Republicans! Iowa Senate Pulls All-Nighter to Roll Back Child Labor Protections

The bill, Senate File 542, would let 14-year-olds work six-hour night shifts, 15-year-olds “perform light assembly work” and move items of up to 50 pounds, and 16- and 17-year-olds serve alcohol, if their parent or guardian signs a waiver. The Senate voted 32-17, with one Republican representative joining all 16 Democrats in opposition, and the bill passed at 4:52 a.m.

“This is important precisely because it doesn’t fit into pre-existing patterns,” said Eric Blanc, an author and professor of labor studies at Rutgers University. “It goes above and beyond previous attacks on workers’ rights, which have tended to focus on things like preventing unions, preventing increases to the minimum wage law.”

Vote Republican if you think this is a good idea! Why so many top Republicans want to go to war in Mexico

An astonishingly bad idea that’s gotten popular very quickly.

One of the hottest new ideas in Republican politics is, apparently, launching a war in Mexico.

Three recent articles — in Rolling Stone, Politico, and Semafor — traced the rise of the proposal from obscurity to the party’s highest levels, finding ample evidence of the idea’s popularity in the GOP ranks. Former President Donald Trump, for example, has been asking for a “battle plan” to “attack Mexico,” specifically targeting drug cartel strongholds in the country. Every single declared Republican presidential candidatehas endorsed treating cartels like terrorist organizations. And in both the House and the Senate, leading Republicans have proposed authorizing the use of military force in Mexico to fight cartels.

Launching cross-border raids into the territory of the US’s neighbor and third-largest trading partner, a vital partner on many issues, is just about the worst idea, ever. The US and Latin American partners have been waging a literal war on drugs for decades; military campaigns like Plan Colombia have repeatedly failed to stop narcotics from entering the United States. Attacks on Mexican soil seem no more promising — and considerably more likely to backfire in dangerous ways.

In reporting this piece, I spoke to four different experts on foreign policy and/or the Mexican border from across the ideological spectrum; not one of them thought these proposals contained anything like a workable idea. “The planning would embarrass Paul Wolfowitz,” quipped Justin Logan, the director of defense and foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute.

What this exposes, more than anything else, is an important way the Republican party hasn’t changed in the Trump era.

As much as Trump billed himself as a kind of isolationist critic of the Republican foreign policy consensus, his actual track record as president shows that he was quite willing to use force aggressively. He used force in somewhat different ways, and for different reasons, than his predecessors — but very clearly accepted that some of America’s big foreign policy problems could be solved by bombing them into oblivion.

The enthusiasm for a new Mexican-American war illustrates the same sort of principle.

Vote Republican if you want the US to default!

The deadline to raise the debt ceiling is getting closer, and investors are getting more jittery. According to the Wall Street Journal's experts, the current cost of insuring treasury debt corresponds to a belief in a 2% chance of default. There are a whole lot of caveats about this, but the conclusion nonetheless is that things are getting dicey.

Meanwhile, Republicans fiddle while Washington DC burns.

Trump touts authoritarian vision for second term: ‘I am your justice’

The former president is proposing deploying the military domestically, purging the federal workforce and building futuristic cities from scratch

By Isaac Arnsdorf and Jeff Stein
April 21, 2023 at 5:00 a.m. EDT
https://www.washingtonpost.com/elections/2023/04/21/trump-agenda-polic
ies-2024
/

Mandatory stop-and-frisk. Deploying the military to fight street crime, break up gangs and deport immigrants. Purging the federal workforce and charging leakers.

Former president Donald Trump has steadily begun outlining his vision for a second-term agenda, focusing on unfinished business from his time in the White House and an expansive vision for how he would wield federal power. In online videos and stump speeches, Trump is pledging to pick up where his first term left off and push even further.

Where he earlier changed border policies to reduce refugees and people seeking asylum, he’s now promising to conduct an unprecedented deportation operation. Where he previously moved to make it easier to fire federal workers, he’s now proposing a new civil service exam. After urging state and local officials to take harsher measures on crime and homelessness, Trump says he is now determined to take more direct federal action.

“In 2016, I declared I am your voice,” Trump said in a speech last month at the Conservative Political Action Conference and repeated at his first 2024 campaign rally in Waco a few weeks later. “Today, I add: I am your warrior. I am your justice. And for those who have been wronged and betrayed, I am your retribution.”

Trump’s emerging platform marks a sharp departure from traditional conservative orthodoxy emphasizing small government, which was famously summed up in Ronald Reagan’s first inaugural address: “Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.” Trump, by contrast, is proposing to apply government power, centralized under his authority, toward a vast range of issues that have long remained outside the scope of federal control.

Experts called some of Trump’s ideas impractical, reckless, self-defeating, potentially illegal and even dangerous. Some of Trump’s specific proposals are admittedly underdeveloped, such as a plan for building futuristic cities from scratch on unused federal land, which has been compared to projects in repressive regimes such as Saudi Arabia.

But Trump has a track record of floating ideas that stoke widespread outrage or confusion, then roiling government and legal institutions to realize them, such as banning citizens of several majority-Muslim countries from coming to the United States and imposing trade barriers. Trump is currently facing federal and local criminal investigations arising from his unsuccessful efforts to overturn his 2020 election defeat, which ultimately inspired a deadly riot by his supporters at the U.S. Capitol.

“As with so many things Trump, it’ll be sticky to sort out where what he’s proposing is literally unlawful, which some things would be, and where what he’s proposing would fly in the face of well-established and deeply principled norms,” said Steve Vladeck, an expert on constitutional and national security law at the University of Texas at Austin.

Trump campaign advisers said the former president will continue rolling out new policy ideas, with the goal of being upfront with voters about his agenda and letting them vote based on policy, similar to how he released a list of his potential Supreme Court nominees during the 2016 campaign. They identified Trump’s top priority as public safety and law enforcement, while stressing a commitment to collaborating with state authorities and working within the law.

“Together, we are going to finish what we started,” Trump said at the Waco rally last month. “With you at my side, we will totally obliterate the deep state, we will banish the warmongers from our government, we will drive out the globalists, and we will cast out the communists and Marxists, we will throw off the corrupt political class, we will beat the Democrats, we will rout the fake news media, we will stand up to the RINOs, and we will defeat Joe Biden and every single Democrat.”

Supporters have cheered Trump’s continued turn away from longtime conservative orthodoxy, such as free trade and foreign interventions, and credited him for ushering in larger shift in the party. In articulating a vision of a more coercive right-wing government, Trump is finding common ground with his leading rival for the 2024 Republican nomination, Ron DeSantis. The Florida governor has laid out his own doctrine of asserting more government power, exemplified by his flagship bills restricting classroom instruction of diversity, gender and sexual orientation; his moves to punish Disney for opposing him; and his suspension of a Democratic prosecutor.

The shared positioning on executive power by Trump and DeSantis, who lead early primary polls, underscores how much Trump has reshaped the Republican base in the mold of his “Make America Great Again” movement.

“The Reagan limited-government conservatism and emphasis on federalism is being displaced by a new muscular, nationalizing cultural conservatism, with a lot of anger,” said Larry Diamond, a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution who studies democracy. “One thing we’ve learned about Trump and authoritarian populists like him is not to dismiss what they’re saying as just idle language and toothless roar. We need to take it very seriously.”

The rise of a more activist view of right-wing governance has sparked a wider debate within the conservative movement. Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie, another potential presidential aspirant, has criticized Trump and DeSantis as not conservative.

“The reality is we have to meet the government where it is presently,” said Paul Dans, director of the Heritage Foundation’s 2025 Presidential Transition Project, an effort by the conservative think tank and other conservative groups to develop policy proposals, personnel recommendations, training and transition plans representing a consensus of the conservative movement. “That’s really where the more activist leaning is coming from in this project, that we need skilled operators to start taking this battleship and pointing it in a new direction.”

The Trump campaign’s policy development is being led by Vince Haley, a former White House aide who previously worked for former House speaker Newt Gingrich. As the current Trump campaign’s policy head, Haley has been coordinating with Heritage and partner organizations the Conservative Partnership Institute and the Center for Renewing America, as well as the America First Policy Institute and Stephen Miller’s America First Legal, to consider policy ideas and potential personnel picks for an administration-in-waiting. One adviser likened the collaborative spirit to the legendary weekly meetings of conservative minds convened by the anti-tax activist Grover Norquist.

Heritage and partner groups, which are unveiling their full policy book at a conference outside Washington on Friday, say they’re laying the groundwork for a future Republican president without picking sides and have been in discussions with DeSantis’s team as well, led by policy aide Dustin Carmack. The Center for Renewing America is officially neutral; its president, former Trump budget director Russ Vought, has endorsed Trump, while senior fellow Ken Cuccinelli is leading a pro-DeSantis super PAC.

“I guarantee the stuff we’re putting forward is not going to get thrown in the trash,” said Vought, who contributed the transition project’s chapter on exercising authority through the Executive Office of the President, akin to a playbook for a White House chief of staff. Some of Vought’s ideas have found their way into Trump’s proposals, such as a recent announcement on bringing independent agencies such as the Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communications Commission under White House supervision.

“There’s a glove of power needed to beat back the administrative state or deep state,” he said, “and if you’re not willing to put your hand in that glove you will fail, regardless of how much credibility you have with the base.”

On the campaign trail, Trump has acknowledged the advantage of having more allies to help him prepare to operate the vast expanses of the administration more immediately than after his surprise win in 2016.

“When I went there, I didn’t know a lot of people; I had to rely on, in some cases, RINOs and others to give me some recommendations, but I know them all now,” he said in Iowa last month, referring pejoratively to “Republicans in Name Only.” “I know the good ones, I know the bad ones, I know the weak ones, I know the strong ones.”

‘Freedom Cities’

The new cities proposal consists of a national contest to charter up to 10 D.C.-sized metropolises on undeveloped federal land. Administration officials discussed the concept toward the end of Trump’s term, but he did not campaign on it in 2020. Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner pushed the idea in White House meetings after it was initially brought up by Haley and another speechwriter on Miller’s team, Ross Worthington, who is also now on the 2024 campaign, according to a person familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe private conversations.

Trump has discussed the new “Freedom Cities” in utopian terms, with flying cars, manufacturing hubs and opportunities for homeownership, promising a “quantum leap in the American standard of living.” The campaign has provided few details on how the plan would work in practice.

Trump acknowledged that the idea needed more work over a Sunday dinner in mid-March, according to economic adviser Stephen Moore. “He said, ‘I’m still trying to figure out how it’s going to work,’ something like that,’” Moore recalled in an interview. “He said, ‘How do you think we should make that work?’ And I’m going to help him with the idea.”

Moore said the cities could be designed in part by offering tax incentives and creating a “super police force that keeps the place safe,” reflecting GOP allegations that Democratic-run cities are awash with crime. It’s not clear how that will prove more attractive than similar measures already enacted by GOP governors. Even some of Trump’s allies have been skeptical of the plan.

“I hate this thing,” one outside economic adviser to Trump said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to describe private conversations with campaign officials. “The economic problems facing the nations are so severe, and we’re going to talk make-believe about ‘building new cities’?”

Experts stress that cities have historically grown around natural centers of economic activity rather than state edict. “You can’t just wave a wand and have cities come into being,” said Rick McGahey, an economist at the New School who specializes in urban growth. “This is not where cities come from. The concept does not work.”


Some observers say the idea more closely resembles libertarian fantasies, such as that produced by a think tank funded by tech billionaire Peter Thiel, of new private communities run on cryptocurrency. Others found it reminiscent of projects to build centrally controlled cities from scratch in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Trump has routinely praised and defended authoritarian foreign leaders such as Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, along with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Some Trump allies give him credit for what they see as a bold new idea. One campaign adviser compared the proposal’s ambition to the “Opportunity Zones” economic incentives in Trump’s 2017 tax legislation, scaled up to emulate historic Republican achievements such as Abraham Lincoln’s Homestead Act and Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Interstate Highway System.

“There is this broad recognition that we don’t build enough things in America and that, you know, obviously, we have great American cities, but we haven’t really built a new model city,” said Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio), who has endorsed Trump’s presidential bid. “There are a lot of other countries that are trying different approaches out, and I think it’s fine for us to think about doing that here, too.”

Trump has specified that he wants to define architectural standards in existing cities as well, insisting on classical-style buildings, monuments to “true American heroes,” and schools and streets named “not after communists but patriots.” He has also proposed forcibly removing homeless people to outlying tent cities, wading into an area usually left to local governments and relying on unclear federal authority.

“Violators of these bans will be arrested, but they will be given the option to accept treatment and services if they are willing to be rehabilitated,” Trump said in a recent campaign video.

‘Patriotic education’

Similarly, Trump has suggested a stronger federal role in education, a matter that conservatives have traditionally advocated keeping under local control. He has proposed letting all parents use state funds to send their children to the school of their choice, similar to Republican-led legislation in Arizona, Iowa and Utah. Critics say the arrangement hollows out public education.

Trump called for a school choice program during the 2016 campaign but didn’t push it when Republicans controlled Congress, and a proposal by his education secretary, Betsy DeVos, for “Education Freedom Scholarships” went nowhere. A second Trump administration could expand school choice through budget reconciliation (requiring a simple majority in the Senate) by offering tax credits for tuition, according to Frederick M. Hess, the director of education policy studies at the right-leaning American Enterprise Institute.

But a direct federal voucher program would entail increasing federal outlays on K-12 education. Trying to require school choice as a condition of districts’ receiving federal funding probably would face a court challenge, Hess aid.

Trump also proposed holding direct elections for parents to hire and fire school principals. Hess said that proposal lacks clear federal authority and raised a range of questions, such as who the candidates would be, whether they would be partisan, and who would set the qualifications and terms.

“This is not a real solution,” Houman Harouni, a lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, said of Trump’s proposals. “It has to do with communicating to a portion of his base that they are going to have the religious or nationalist or exclusive education that they would like.”

Trump said he would reestablish a presidential commission to promote a “patriotic” curriculum that rejects scholarship on systemic racism. His “1776 Commission,” which did not include any professional historians, released a report at the end of his presidency that demonized institutions such as federal agencies and universities.

“What Trump is trying to resurrect is something that was thoroughly discredited by the professional historical community in a totally apolitical context,” said James Grossman, executive director of the American Historical Association. “There’s lots of places to look and see what happens when history education gets stripped of its professional integrity in the interest of a political party.”

‘Shatter the deep state’

In another form of enforcing loyalty and suppressing dissent, Trump has proposed making it easier to fire federal workers, cracking down on media leaks, and establishing a “truth and reconciliation commission” to publish records on alleged abuses by spy agencies. He said he will require all federal employees to pass a new civil service test covering due-process rights, free speech, religious liberties, and Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure.

“This is how I will shatter the deep state and restore government that is controlled by the people and for the people,” Trump said in a campaign video. In another, he elaborated, “We need to clean house of all of the warmongers and America-Last globalists in the deep state, the Pentagon, the State Department and the national security industrial complex.”

Some of Trump’s proposals for overhauling the merit-based civil service would require congressional action. The result could be to undermine the ability of professional public servants to reliably deliver government services without political interference, warned Max Stier, chief executive of the Partnership for Public Service, a nonpartisan nonprofit that supports federal workforce development.

“He is proposing changes that would create the world that he is objecting to,” Stier said. “It does have real-time consequences in terms of undermining public trust in our government. That’s a real problem because trust in government is a core part of our democracy.”

‘Military resources’

Trump drew widespread criticism as president, especially during the demonstrations against the murder of George Floyd in 2020, for advocating harsh treatment of protesters, clearing peaceful demonstrators outside the White House, and deploying unmarked federal agents in Washington and Portland, Ore. Since leaving office, Trump has said he regrets not going even further to deploy military power domestically and wouldn’t hesitate to do so if he returns to the White House.

“In cities where there has been a complete breakdown of public safety, I will send in federal assets, including the National Guard, until law and order is restored,” Trump said at CPAC. “We will use all necessary state, local, federal and military resources to carry out the largest domestic deportation operation in American history.”

In campaign videos and messages, Trump has specifically proposed requiring police departments to use stop-and-frisk, a tactic that has been widely criticized for discriminating against people of color and that a federal judge in New York found to violate the Constitution’s prohibition on unreasonable searches. Trump also said he would order the Justice Department to investigate charging decisions by local prosecutors, challenging the constitutional division between federal and local authorities. He further proposed using federal law enforcement to dismantle gangs and execute drug dealers and human traffickers.

Trump doesn’t envision a national police force, the campaign adviser said, and in practice his initiatives could be accomplished through federal funding or joint operations with state authorities.

The president has no legal authority over local police or prosecutors, and attempts to attach conditions to federal funding usually face litigation, according to Vladeck, the University of Texas law professor. There are legal limits on using the military for civilian law enforcement but allowances for acting in a support capacity that a Trump administration could try to exploit, Vladeck said.

“Republicans have tried to corner the market on claiming the federal government has been weaponized, but that’s what this is,” he added. “And the only way you can do that is by interjecting federal authority into matters that constitutionally or at least traditionally have been reserved to the states.”

Who are you kidding about "honest discussion"? You want Trump as the solution to all problems. And that is what Trump is selling this month. He was selling that same idea since 2015 "Only I can fix it" and you bought that solution without thinking that it depends completely on Trump being a sterling character. There is a different way that doesn't depend on a Hero - Trump or Biden - being the only one who can fix it.

Unfortunately, the Republican voters don't understand any of the Democrats' solutions, don't want to understand, and their Congressmen want to repeal every Democratic solution. See the law called the "Limit, Save, Grow Act of 2023".
