Trump’s victory was driven by Americans fed-up about economic stagnation, above all else.
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts understands Neocons and the Liberal Atlanticists (Hillary represents both). He worked in the Reagan administration when “the crazies” sank their tendrils even deeper into the US foreign policy establishment.
Progressives mean well, but they are totally clueless about international relations. For example, Amy Goodman at Democracy NOW has brainlessly broadcast segments praising the White Helmets, the propaganda outfit Western media uses to frame the duly elected Syrian government as the source of terrorism against the Syrian people.
Trump has giant personal flaws, but Hillary Clinton represents a faction of the U.S. foreign policy establishment that outright desires to attempt to execute colored revolution efforts against Putin, while lying about the fact that it was the U.S. that precipitated the coup in the Ukraine and countless other lies. “Fuck the EU” Victoria Nuland, after-all, was rumored to be Hillary’s pick for Secretary of State, with the most undiplomatic U.N. diplomat in US history, Samantha Powers, in the running as well. Wake up, progressives. You were supporting a war mongering candidate for president that was an affront to some of your core values. Nuclear war and the extinction of the human race is a wee-bit more important than Trumps’ racism, sexism, arrogance, and whatever else anyone wishes to fixate on.
Rampant empire and the military industrial complex robs progressives. Progressives care deeply about peaceful international relations, and yet not one in 1,000 Americans knows the truth that it was the United States that facilitated the coup in Ukraine. Corporate media has treated you like Pavlovian dogs and insulted your intelligence.
