Quick assessment on Trump:
If Trump flips on all three, we will have a de facto continuation of the Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama agendas.

TMR 171 : Dr. Paul Craig Roberts : Trump Is Over
Published on Saturday, 22 April 2017 20:50
“I think that the Trump presidency is already over. I’m not even sure he qualifies as a figurehead.”—PCR
Dr. Julian Charles: “We are joined once again by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former US Assistant Secretary to the Treasury for Economic Policy, for a discussion on the Trump presidency so far.”
Dr. Roberts assesses the performance of the new president and his administration with reference to pre-election promises; shares with us his view that the deep state has effectively neutralised Donald Trump as US president; gives his reaction to the so-called “Syrian gas attack” in Idlib, and the subsequent military action by the US against Syria; and considers the very real prospects for war as Washington steps up its warmongering around the globe.
James Perloff on Trump, Syria and the New World Order
James Perloff returns to Our Interesting Times to his article “Trump Is Unmasked: 14 Reasons Why the Syria Airstrikes Were a Really Bad Idea.” We talk about President Trump’s decision to order a missile attack on a Syrian airfield last month and why this apparent betrayal is a signal that his administration has been co-opted by neoconservative warmongers and the Israeli lobby. Later we discuss Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, his connections to the Deep State and organized crime.

There are many theories on the Trump phenomenon. Here are a few variables to consider:
The table was set for a Hillary win, but Trump’s populism overwhelmed the system. Despite Trump’s win, the powerful enemies list above was not to be denied. Their next step was to stop Trump at any cost. They’ve tried to tie Trump to the Russians with absolutely zero evidence and despite the full support of the MSM to paint this narrative in the minds of the American public, this ruse has failed. They would like to have an impeachment, but I’m not sure if they have figured this one out yet, though they are working day and night on this tactic. In the meantime, Trump’s enemies within the deep state, and with help from the neocons in Congress, have been able to apparently cause Trump defaults on many of his campaign pledges; though some may seem to be a default are in fact consistent with his prior statements.
A few signs of problems surfaced prior to the election like Trump’s pick of Pence for VP. Pence is a true-blue globalist, though many uninformed have debated me on this. Pence being labeled as a conservative Christian is enough for them. What they do not realize is that I was doing some homework on Pence prior to his selection as VP. What I discovered was very disturbing. I read Pence’s web site while he was Governor of Indiana (2013–2017). On his web site was a glowing, detailed endorsement of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) which was my major concern with Cruz. This was removed from the Website immediately after Pence was picked for VP. Unknown to most of Americans who have their head permanently stuck inside the propaganda cannon we call TV, the TPP would have ceded US sovereignty to an unelected board of bureaucrats reporting to international banking and business interest subjugating the US Constitution under this globalist framework. The TPP would have controlled the movement of goods services and people and relegated the US Constitution to an historical foot note. Even the passage of the fast track authorization for TPP in the Senate was done underhandedly. Since the TPP is a treaty and not an agreement it is required to have a 2/3rds vote (66) in the senate—which they did not have– but the Republican-controlled senate changed this constitutional requirement to a simple majority vote of 51 calling this treaty an agreement. Additionally, the agreement was held behind locked doors in the basement where none of the Senators could read this 5,544 page treaty prior to passage without special provisions. You could not have a cell phone, take pictures or notes or have an aid accompany you.
NPR: “For any senator who wants to study the draft TPP language, it has been made available in the basement of the Capitol, inside a secure, soundproof room. There, lawmakers surrender their cellphones and other mobile devices. Any notes taken inside the room must be left in the room.
Only aides with high-level security clearances can accompany lawmakers. Members of Congress can’t ask outside industry experts or lawyers to analyze the language. They can’t talk to the public about what they read. And Brown says there’s no computer inside the secret room to look something up when there’s confusion. You just consult the USTR official.”
So for Pence to support TPP, either he is a moron, uninformed or he is a globalist. Pence is no moron.
Then we have the case of General Michael Flynn (Trump’s National Security Adviser) who was forced to resign because he wasn’t entirely honest with VP Pence about talking to the Russians. This is a bold-faced lie and used as cover to get rid of Flynn. Why? Because, yes Flynn did talk to the Russians, but that is his job. Now what did he say to the Russians? Flynn deflected from any substantive talks and said that they could discuss with Trump and others once Trump was confirmed. Nothing wrong here, but Flynn was forced out nonetheless.
It is important to note why Flynn is so important here. Flynn was the General who outed Obama’s support for ISIS, and Flynn led that part of the deep state that refused to support ISIS. Flynn’s leadership in this internal battle helped elect Trump and protect Trump, yet Trump thought nothing of throwing Flynn and his reputation under the bus. Why? I do not know, but what I do know is that the reason Trump gave for removing Flynn was a bold-faced lie.
Since the Flynn removal, Trump has moved closer to the position of the Neocons as evidenced when he used the exact same lie Obama did to attack Syria. Trump lie #2. Everyone including Trump knows that Assad did not release sarin gas on his own people, but that doesn’t matter for the narrative promulgated by the neocons and their sycophant press. So now, Trump is seeming to look more acceptable to the Neocons but has alienated much of his base. Trump has done a 180 on his support for NATO and is showing other signs of compromise on previously stated core values. Trump’s selection of CIA Chief Mike Pompeo is very worrisome to say the least.
The true-blue Trump supporters are saying that Trump is playing –not 3D chess– but 64D chess, and we just can’t see the big picture. While Trump is a great improvement over a Jeb or a Hillary and continues to deliver on some domestic promises, we cannot relax, we must continue the battle to reestablish this Republic and the Individual Rights our founding documents guarantee.

Is Trump losing the Neocon chess game or is he just sacrificing some pawns to ready for a future attack?
Neocon Chess …
-Flynn Resigns as National Security Adviser
-Bannon removed from National Security Council
-Nunes steps aside from Russia investigation
-Trump attacks Syria
Trump just lobbed 59 Tomahawk missiles ($1.6M ea.) at a country that does not threaten the US and without a declaration of war as required by the US Constitution. Keep in mind that Assad has done nothing to the USA and does not threaten our national security in the least. Also, keep in mind, the first sarin gas attack the West blamed on Assad turned out to be supplied by Hillary. Does it matter the so-called (US-backed) ‘rebels’ have slaughtered 100s of thousands of innocent Syrians, most of whom were Christians? Does it matter that only Putin and Assad (not US/NATO) are protecting the Christians in Syria?
Saudi Arabia and Qatar didn’t want Iran and Syria to build a proposed pipeline between Iran and Syria which would have been competition to the House of Saud and Qatar (Our best head-chopping buds for life). The House of Saud didn’t like Syria’s Assad because he is Alawite not Sunni like them. Most of Syria (64%) is Sunni. Interesting note: Muslims, Jews and Christians have lived and worked in relative peace together in Syria for 200 years. Also, it is important to note that the US Geopolitical strategy was to destabilize the Middle East which included Syria so the Saudi and US State Department are in complete agreement that Assad must to go.

In lieu of a formal report card on Trump, here is my quick and dirty thumbnail sketch …
I haven’t done a detailed report card on Trump yet, but I am getting a general idea of some plusses and minuses. Of course, my judgement is entirely my opinion based mostly on the larger pieces of the puzzle. I care not about Trump’s hair or the size of his fingers and I do not follow the obvious false Russian connection or any of the other hogwash dished out by the MSM and their controllers… and I am fully aware that his own adopted party is the greatest threat to Trump’s success. So what can we pin on Trump so far?
In the good column, he has ended TPP, which is the main reason I have been a Trump supporter. Had TPP passed, the US would have ceded its sovereignty to a group of unelected bureaucrats controlled by international money masters. Trump gets an A+ here.
I was hoping that Trump could see though the false claims and orchestrated war-mongering against Russia and move quickly to remove sanctions and mend our relationship with the great Russian people; but it looks as though Trump has taken the bait on this. I was also hoping that Trump would use our defense industry for defense not offense, but here too he disappoints. Apparently Trump doesn’t realize or doesn’t want to realize that the US and Saudi Arabia are the major supporters of ISIS and their ilk. The best way to fight ISIS therefore would be to stop funding, arming and training ISIS, but Trump like all other 2016 candidates has chosen to cozy up the House of Saud and attack Syria (under the old tired ruse of fighting ISIS) and now Trump is assisting the Saudis in their war against Yemen. A more informed President who was truly against Globalism would be cutting the House of Saud off at the knee caps.
On the matter of Goldman Sachs, here too, Trump disappoints. While many connect Bannon to Goldman Sachs, they don’t realize that –while Bannon use to work there– Bannon is definitely anti-Goldman Sachs in his political outlook. This is good. But Trump has also appointed four other high-level Goldman Sachs folks to important positions which is bad in my opinion. You can argue that you need someone who really understands the technical web we have found ourselves in, so Goldman Sachs folks could help; but Goldman Sachs is an apex predator and irredeemably evil, so this too looks to be a major error from my perspective.
While Trump’s budget is making some long overdue cuts to some government units, they really should be eliminated. I don’t know the political calculus that would go into eliminating departments but the United States Department of Education should be eliminated.
Some of the major swamp dwellers are predator agencies like the CIA, NSA and United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) who work under the governance of the CFR and the money masters, not for the US citizens. These all should be eliminated or completely routed out at the top and the core and brought in line with the US Constitution, but Trump’s proposed budget seeks to only to reward with additional money and power. Not good.
Picking Jeff Sessions for United States Attorney General was on the surface a good move, but after Sessions recused himself over a flimsy, false MSM diatribe, it makes me wonder if Sessions has the grit to stay the course and prosecute Hillary, Obama and their lackeys for their treasonous crimes. Sessions was great on TPP so he is still my hero, but we must go after these top-level criminals with vigor. His recusal was weak… very weak and concerning.
Jeff also disappoints when it comes to protecting our 4th amendment and his apparent willingness to go after marijuana users. It’s a plant for Pete’s sake with a ton of industrial and medical uses, and besides in the land of the free, it is none of the government’s damn business.
The firing of General Flynn was another Trump failure in my book. Not sure what Trump’s calculus was there but Flynn had risked his career by outing Obama on his support for ISIS and led the counter coup against Hillary and her deep-state insiders. Flynn knew where the bodies were buried and could be trusted. Big loss for Trump.
Trump’s selection of Mike Pence for VP, another bad move from my perspective. While Mike is smart and articulate and seems to be a nice guy, he is a globalist through and through and cannot be trusted with an anti-globalist agenda.
Despite the many negatives listed above, Trump has given the USA one last chance to get it right, but we must watch Trump like a hawk and hold him accountable and make sure we kick the Globalists and all their enablers to the curb. The fight has just begun.

Deception from the RNC … and I caught ’em Red-Handed.
The RNC sent me an email today (04/09/16) pretending that the email was from:
Donald Trump News at Reagan Reports (Screen shot below)
Here is the physical name and address located at the bottom of the email (omitted from the screen shot)…
Donald Trump News
1501 Northpoint Parkway, Suite 104
West Palm Beach, FL 33407 USA
Trump Breaking News <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Notice that the domain name in their email address contains the words Reagan Reports.
Now, how do I know it came from the RNC? Since I own my own domain and am my own email admin, I can do some very interesting things. For example, when I subscribe to any web site, I always list the website’s name as the first few characters in my email address. That way if they sell my email address, I know exactly who the original seller was. In this case the first three letters on my email are RNC, to wit… RNCpoll@<<MY DOMAIN NAME>>.com. This is a made up email address but comes to my domain in any event since it has no other place to go.
Additional NFO on the uncloaking of the RNC:
by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April 06, 2016
With Cruz and Kasich still in the game, Trump will not be able to achieve the 1,237 required delegates to win on the first vote at the Republican Convention to be held July 18–21 in Cleveland, Ohio. On the first vote the delegates won are committed to vote for the primary winners in their district, state, etc. based on the particular rules of the state RNC apparatus. If Trump does not have the requisite 1,237 votes on this first ballot, it goes to a second vote. On the second vote, however, the delegates are uncommitted so can vote for whomever they choose or the party bosses tell them to vote for. Most establishment Republicans do not want Trump, so a second vote is likely the end of the Trump candidacy. We could see a 3rd and 4th vote before a candidate is chosen. Right now, rule 40 –which was designed to stop Ron Paul in 2012– only allows those who have won 8 states to be considered. If this rule is not changed, the only two who can be considered are Trump and Cruz. Expect this rule to be changed just before the convention, allowing anyone to be considered, including Kasich. On the second vote, it is likely to be Cruz since there is such fear and hatred for Trump’s populous policies and the fact that the RNC and others cannot control or manipulate Trump. The RNC does not like Cruz because of his grandstanding in the Senate, but Cruz has been compromised and can therefore be controlled by blackmail. Additionally, Cruz has very deep ties into the Bush Crime family so that is a plus. The power brokers at the RNC will run an endgame to insert a key operative into the VP slot and the cake is baked.
Now the question is, can a Cruz campaign win against a Hillary or a Bernie? I believe it is likely that the Trump supporters will feel cheated and thus either not vote or vote in opposition for the DNC candidate to show their displeasure to the RNC. The RNC has been fully uncloaked by this fiasco and will be history. The RNC knows this, but a Hillary or a Bernie president is much better for the RNC than a Trump in any event and so we will have business as usual. The only benefit I can see in having another Democrat in the White House at noon on January 20th, 2017, is that when the massive financial bubble finally bursts, the Democrats will be blamed.
I’m not sure if this Republic based on the US Constitution and the rule of law can survive the criminality we are witnessing in every branch of our government, but there will be a reset of the economy and of the current political structure. The only question for me is what will this new structure look like? History has taught us that after a major reset (excepting 1776), the new regime is almost always much, much worse than the prior. We live in very interesting times. Buckle your seat-belts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
Why Obama and Hillary must stop Donald Trump at all costs
Michael Savage DESTROYS and Exposes Ted Cruz – 3/10/16
by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April 04, 2016
Jerome Corsi has known Trump for over 40 years and says that Trump is the real deal. Jeff Sessions is one of the few Senators who has read the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) and took a strong stand against it. Those who voted for Obama’s fast track of TPP were paid over $200 million to sell our sovereignty to un-elected international bankers and corporations. Sessions also supports Trump.
Longtime friend, confidant and former Trump adviser, Roger Stone told Alex Jones that Trump was “fully awake”. By this I assume we are to believe that Trump knows about the big game to place the US under the control of a super-constitutional authority a.k.a. the NWO, using some of the following:
So far, all of Trump’s positions line up nicely against the above globalist initiatives (strategies); and of course, his enemy list is impressive: DNC/RNC, CFR, Bilderbergers, Davos groupies, Goldman Sachs all of whom are on the exact opposite side of Trump on all of these NWO initiatives.
Trump’s problem, however, is in dealing with the press and of course the naive public. He must, therefore, speak in broad generalities, simple terms, and be circumspect; since neither the uninformed public nor the gatekeeper-press can tolerate the truth, which would require the destruction of deeply-held assumptions and the years of 360º, 24X7 programming by the media.
Thus, when Trump says we need to eliminate NATO because its usefulness and original purpose has long expired or when he says we need to eliminate NATO because we are paying too much, the press and the public jump on this and question his uninformed position by crying “Who will fight ISIS?”, etc. not realizing of course that it was the US and NATO that have long been using ISIS, Al-Qaeda (The Base) and other ‘crazy Islamists’ as their own personal proxy army to accomplish their clandestine geopolitical goals; which BTW are NOT in the interest of US or EU Citizens.
Trump must do the same dance for all the other topics listed above, or any anti-globalist positions for that matter, which may require a sense of history or context to understand. Trump must not say too much, else wise he be labeled the CIA-Weaponized term: ‘A Conspiracy Theorist!’ by those who still believe in the establishment’s synthetic reality.
NOTE: Stone served as an adviser to the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump. He left the campaign on August 8, 2015.

Jeff Sessions: America’s Sovereignty at Stake in 2016 Presidential Election
by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | Mar 30, 2016
WALL: Am I for a wall on our Southern Border? Not necessarily. I would be happy if our Border Patrol Agents were permitted to do their jobs; and I think it is important for any nation that intends on remaining a nation, to know who exactly is entering their country. Even if a wall is never built, Trump’s wall represents a symbol, a chess piece in the grand globalist game; it says that the days of the globalist are ending; it says no more open borders; it is a gutsy, in-your-face challenge to the establishment power structure that says no more, this charade of yours must end. The globalists are freaking.
TRADE: Am I for Free Trade? Hell, yeah! I am for free trade that is fair trade. Am I for trade agreements like TPP that cedes our sovereignty to an unelected bunch of bureaucrats who report only to cabals of international banks and corporations? Nope.
DEFENSE: Am I for a strong defense? Yep. Defense is the operative word; not offense. I am not for going all around the globe kicking everyone’s ass I see. I am not for foreign entanglements all across the globe which serve only to enrich a select group of military contractors and their bought and paid for pals in congress.
NATO: Has outlived its original purpose and has become a tool of the CFR, the RIIA and their geopolitical agenda.
PUTIN: Am I for working with Putin and Russia? Yes! Putin has proven he is the only adult in this crazy game of chicken our Pentagon planners are playing. There is mutual respect between these two.
VETS: Am I for taking very good care of our Vets? You bet’cha! That’s part of the price of waging all these pointless, illegal and unconstitutional undeclared wars. We need to own this.
FED: Am I for auditing the Fed? Duh.
ACTING PRESIDENTIAL (a.k.a. being PC): Since we are all so tired of professional politicians lying to us with their nice sounding words, it would be nice to have someone who was not afraid to say what was on his mind, even if it ruffled a few feathers.
FINANCIAL ACUMEN: Since we have fifteen hundred trillion in derivatives floating around the globe, it would be nice to have a president who actually knew what a derivative was. Since we have $19 trillion in debt and $101 trillion in unfunded liabilities, it would be nice to have a president who has actually read and understands balance sheets and income statements.
HATE: Trump’s list of haters are the same people who are trying to destroy this country and control the world: The Globalists, George Soros, the DNC/RNC duopoly, the Bilderbergers and the Davos crowd.
CAUTION: Will any of the Presidential Candidates be able to deliver on all or most of their promises? No. Why not? Because we have an entrenched structure of special interests and bureaucrats who control the mechanisms of government. Until you change this, there will be no fundamental change. The private CFR for example controls the US foreign policy and dictates our geopolitics. The private Federal Reserve for example can do whatever it wants irrespective of the President or the Congress. The secretive CIA and NSA keeps everyone in line using blackmail or worse.
P.S. Just Trump mentioning the ‘Wall’, sends shivers of fear and loathing down the spines of the Globalists since that would derail a major part of their plans; likewise, Trump’s comments on the so called trade agreements would set them back decades. I like that a lot; but what I’m curious about is the possibility of a real investigation that would expose their role in 9/11. Trump is a builder, a NYC builder and knows full-well that three buildings could not have been brought down by two planes; free-fall no less. Trump knows that this was a controlled demolition that had to be pre-planned months in advance. I bet the Globalists are wetting their pants over this. On the other hand, this might be a grand opportunity for Trump to make the deal of his life or for his life. Sit back and enjoy the full-on offensive as the Globalists and their hired hands uncloak and try to wreck Trump’s assault on their one world government Utopia.
Roger Stone: Will They Cancel the Election?
by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | Mar 10, 2016
Many of my astute friends make fun of anyone who is stupid enough to even vote.
I think their reasoning goes something like this:
These are all good reasons not to vote, and so they conclude those who vote are just being bamboozled by the entrenched system, ergo they are stupid.
It’s really hard to argue against their analysis based on history. While the DNC and RNC differ around the edges on divisive issues used to engender support, they are substantially the same on many important issues: More spending, more government, more corruption, more wars, etc. At the same time candidate’s promises are broken on a systemic and regular basis. One side will blame the other for this or that, but if you do a detailed analysis, you will find that both sides are colluding behind closed doors to offer each other cover. Texas Senator John Cornyn is a good example. He put on his boots and cowboy hat and campaigned telling Texas that he was against ObamaCare and would make sure it was repealed. Later we find out through a sneaky cloture vote he in effect voted to fully fund ObamaCare. This cloture vote gave him the cover he needed to maintain to the public that he was against ObamaCare, yet the effect of his vote was to fully fund Obamacare. This sort of thing goes on all the time on both sides and is prearranged out of site of the voters and they know no difference. The Republicans said that they needed the congress to stop Obama. We gave them the congress in 2010 to stop Obama’s unconstitutional usurpation of our rights and our constitution; only to watch them give in to Obama’s slightest whim or desire. Rubio, once the Tea Party darling turned on them once in office and did the exact opposite of what he promised on immigration. Rubio is not the only one.
So each election year is like a grand football game or the super bowl where we get to root for our team Red or Blue. We ignore faults of our team and accentuate the faults of the opposing team; and to make this dance really sad, most of these inflammatory faults are completely irrelevant; provided, du jour, by our master-manipulators in the media and political think tanks. Surly they laugh at us!
American Politics basically boils down to whose lies you like better…do you like the Democrat lies…or, do you like the Republican lies? Once you take sides, you turn your brain off and start yelling at each other until one side gets tired. After a short rest the cycle starts all over. Meanwhile, whilst you are busy passing your time with this popular American sport, your masters in D.C. are taking everything you own. This is the game.
And then along comes Trump. Is he another Marco Rubio or a Mitt Romney or is he different? We shall see.
