Trump style regime change: moderate British rebels align with America

Donald Trump Advocates His Own Version of Regime Change. Here’s How It May Happen.

Yes you read that correctly, even though it contradicts much of what Trump has said throughout the campaign and much of what I’ve said about him. But don’t worry, this is a very different kind of regime change. It will be done without violence, it will be done using existing democratic means and most importantly, it will be done according to the will of the people of the country in which the regime will be changed.

The country whose regime Donald Trump may well change, is The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

As Sergey Gladysh reported, Donald Trump recently met with moderate British rebel Nigel Farage and it isn’t the first time they’ve met. In many ways, when one looks at the political pedigree of both Trump and Farage, it is surprising that they didn’t meet years ago. But to be fair, when Farage was in the European Parliament, railing against the corruption, anti-democratic attitudes and master-slave relationship to countries like Greece that EU leadership employ, Trump was more interested in saying ‘you’re fired’ to his television apprentices, than to the political elite.

But since Brexit, Farage has frequently visited Trump and has shared platforms with him where both men spoke in unison, saying ‘you’re fired’ to the old guard. The lines of communication between President Putin and Trump are open and so too has President Assad’s government extended an olive branch to the America President-elect, one which Trump appears to want to clutch once he enters the White House.

Now, Farage and Trump are all smiles after their victory lap meeting at the gilded Trump Tower.

Although it would have been personally exciting to be part of that meeting, there is a place I would have far rather been. I would love to see the glum, saggy, frowny faces of the British political establishment when they realise that, Trump has met with Britain’s favourite moderate rebel before meeting any of them and that even more importantly, Trump’s foreign policy is set to make the old British establishment look even more foolish than they make themselves look and that is quite an accomplishment.

One is well to remember that this is the same British establishment who cling onto the tired and stupid ‘Assad Must Go’ line, this is the same British establishment who want to sanction Russia over the fact that a group of Obama installed fascists in Kiev have gone to war in Donbass (don’t look for logic in this British policy, there is none), this is the same British establishment whose state owned financially cartel, the Natwest branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group are trying to shut down RT’s operations in Britain.

Well here’s a news flash, Donald Trump is the first US President-elect in history to be interviewed on RT. He was interviewed by RT host Larry King, one of the most respected American journalists of the last thirty years.  How silly do those in Britain feel now that they’re trying to shut down RT when the soon to be President of America is happy to appear on RT? I really hope the great British sense of humour isn’t lost on them at this point, because there really is something Monty Pythonesque about the whole affair.

I can just see members of the Conservative party sitting around a table, happy to act as the 51st state, basing a foreign policy not on British interests but based on ‘truth, justice and the American way’. But the American way has changed and Trump’s version of it is more truthful and more just than that of any of his predecessors.

The moment she came into power, I said that Prime Minister Theresa May would not last very long. Foreign relations is not her area of expertise, she voted to remain in the EU, she is taking far too long to develop her own Brexit strategy and is being far from transparent in allowing others to offer their own suggestions.

Furthermore, she presides over a party that is  deeply divided in several directions over Europe, from remainiacs,  to soft Brexiteers, to hard Brexiteers to Boris Johnson, a man of many principles and if you don’t like those, don’t worry, he’s got plenty of others.

A recent High Court ruling means that May will have to allow Parliament to debate Brexit, this can only be a good thing, but before this is to happen there ought to be a general election, one that reflects the will of the British people to leave the EU. If there was a general election tomorrow, I have no doubt that in spite of organisational problems, UKIP would do very well indeed.

Nigel Farage is the moderate rebel who speaks of millions in Britain who have been let down by globalism, let down by money spent on war rather than the British people, let down by antagonistic foreign policies, let down by the system as a whole.

There is of course the matter of Scotland taking a different view on Europe than England and Wales. Although I believe it to be in the long term interests of everyone in Britain to remain in the UK, if  the Scottish people want to exercise their democratic right to self-determination, they can do so whenever they wish. For all of Britain’s problems and there are many, should Scotland decide to go her own way, I can assure you, there will be no Donbass on the Clyde and those in Scotland will remain a fraternal people with those in England.

Another moderate rebel who will do well is Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour party. Whilst Labour still has quite a few pro-war Blairites in the ranks, like Farage, Corbyn, from the left, speaks for millions who have been victims of privatisation and the demolition of great British industry. I believe at this state George Galloway, the prominent socialist, could re-enter Parliament easily. He too is a moderate rebel who speaks for millions more than the broken establishment could dream of doing.

After all, Galloway from the left and Farage from the right shared a Brexit platform as both men in their own way put the peoples’ interests before the interests of those who line the corridors of power. I frankly believe that Jeremy Corbyn could work better with Donald Trump than almost anyone in the Tory party. I say this for the same reason that on issues of protection and anti-globalist economic policies, Bernie Sanders has pledged to work with Trump when possible.

Trump has snubbed the British establishment by meeting Farage, but this is out of his own love for Britain, a country he has visited many times. Bush and Obama had often meet obscure opposition figures from the countries they were about to invade in order to put a local face on their blood-socked regime change policy. The trouble was, these leaders typically spoke for no one but themselves, it was mere window dressing for illegal wars.

By contrast, Nigel Farage speaks for the many and as soon as there is an election, I firmly believe he and those who think like him shall reap the electoral rewards. This, Mr. Bush and Mr. Obama is how regime change is conducted.

With a British establishment looking to cling on to the failed policies of the past, one is seeing the opposite of what one saw during the 1960s. In the 1960s, Prime Minister Harold Wilson refused to follow America into the Vietnam War. No one can now say that this decision was anything but correct. Now the tables have turned. America is behaving sensibly and Britain is still hell-bent on wars and aggression.

With the erecting of new burger restaurants outpacing the construction of new fish and chips shops in London, I have to say, though I never thought I would say it: Make Britain More American Again!

We live in strange times, but politically speaking, they are good times.

World War I Homage – A Triumph of Lies and Platitudes

The unilateral, lawless imperialism that engendered World War I and 20 years later World War II is still alive and dangerously vigorous.

Published

on

Authored by Finian Cunningham via Strategic Culture:


World leaders gathered in Paris on Sunday under the Arc de Triomphe to mark the centennial anniversary ending World War I. In an absurd way, the Napoleon-era arc was a fitting venue – because the ceremony and the rhetoric from President Emmanuel Macron was a “triumph” of lies and platitudes.

Among the estimated 70 international leaders were US President Trump and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, each sitting on either side of Macron and his wife. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was also given pride of place beside the French president.

Macron’s address to the dignitaries was supposed to be a call for international multilateralism. He urged a “brotherhood” for the cause of world peace. He also made a pointed rebuke of “nationalism” as posing a danger to peace – a remark which seemed aimed at Donald Trump who recently boasted of his politics with that very word.

But, ironically, everything about the ceremony and Macron’s speech resonated with jingoistic French nationalism, not his avowed multinationalism. As the politicians sat under the Arc de Triomphe, Macron walked around its circular esplanade in a salute to assembled French military forces bearing assault rifles and bayonets. The French anthem – The Marseillaise – was played twice, once by an army brass band, the second time sung by an army choir. There was also a military plane flyover displaying the blue, red and white tricolor of the French national flag.

In his speech, Macron talked about soldiers coming from all over the world to “die for France” during the 1914-18 Great War. He even said at one point that the war was fought for “the vision of France” and its “universal values”.

This was fluent drivel, French-style. No wonder Russia’s Putin momentarily gave a look of boredom as Macron waxed lyrical.

The speechifying and commemoration was completely detached from current realities of conflict and international tensions.

Among the “brotherhood” whom Macron was appealing to were Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu whose military forces continue to bomb and slaughter Palestinian civilians in illegally occupied territory. Also present was Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko whose armed militias continue to terrorize the people of eastern Ukraine with the blatant objective of instigating a war between the US-led NATO alliance and Russia.

Listening to Macron one would think that World War I erupted mysteriously from no specific cause and that an estimated 10 million soldiers were all killed in heroic battles for noble principles.

There was, of course, no mention by Macron of imperialist warmongering and the barbaric sacrifice of humans as slaves in the service of national capitalist power interests.

Grotesquely, as the world leaders donned solemn faces and mouthed pious platitudes for peace, the whole occasion was a triumph in burying reality and the ongoing causes of wars, as well as whitewashing the very culprits responsible for wars. Among the war criminals wearing a mournful black suit was former French President Nicolas Sarkozy who launched the NATO blitzkrieg on Libya in 2011.

While the empty, self-indulgent rhetoric was ringing out, one couldn’t help but recall some of the most glaring contemporary contradictions that were blocked out with awesome Orwellian efficiency.

Just this week, reports emerged of the horrific civilian death toll from the American air force bombing the Syrian city of Raqqa. The city was razed to the ground by US air strikes last year – supposedly to defeat the ISIS terror group. Some 8,000 bodies of civilians, mainly women and children, have now been recovered by Syrian government forces. And that’s only from clearing away a tiny area of rubble for the whole city.

What the Americans did in Raqqa was a monumental war crime, all the more criminal because US forces, along with their NATO partners Britain and France, are illegally present in and assaulting sovereign Syrian territory.

As Macron was telling world leaders about “the vision of France”, hundreds were being killed in Yemen in a battle to strangle the entire population by taking the port city of Hodeida. The genocidal war on that country – which is putting up to 16 million people at risk from starvation – has been fully backed by France, the US and Britain, from their supply of warplanes and bombs to the Saudi and Emirati aggressive forces.

We could mention other specific conflicts where the culprits are clearly identified. For example, the multi-million-dollar support from Washington for the Azov Battalion and other Neo-Nazi militias in Ukraine, which openly emulate the genocidal conduct of Hitler’s Third Reich to exterminate ethnic Russians.

We could mention how US-led NATO forces continue to expand towards Russian territory with outrageous provocation. The mounting earlier this month of the biggest-ever NATO war drills since the Cold War in the Arctic region adjacent to Russia’s northern border was a brazen threat of rehearsing invasion. The announced tearing up of yet another nuclear arms control treaty unilaterally by Washington is a reckless undermining of global security.

Washington threatens China with naval forces marauding near Beijing’s maritime territory in the South China Sea. Washington blockades Iran with illegal economic warfare and openly agitates for regime change. Washington declares Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba a “troika of tyranny” and reserves the right to threaten each of these countries with military invasion at any time.

Meanwhile, this weekend, Russia hosted peace talks in Moscow between the warring parties of Afghanistan. It was seen as a major breakthrough in trying to bring peace to the Central Asia country which has been wracked by 17 years of violence since US forces began their ongoing military occupation – allegedly to defeat terrorism.

Elsewhere, Russia has engaged with Turkey, Germany and France to convene a summit for peaceful reconstruction of Syria. The latest summit held in Ankara at the end of last month follows several other such meetings in Astana and Sochi, largely at the behest of Russian leader Vladimir Putin, to find a political settlement to the nearly eight-year war in Syria – a war that was fomented covertly by Washington and its allies for regime change.

France’s Macron talks about “multilateralism” for world peace, yet the two countries which have arguably supported and implemented multilateralism in practice are Russia and China in their calls and policies for global partnership and economic development.

And yet it is Russia and China that are being harassed with American and European sanctions, and US military provocations.

The unilateral, lawless imperialism that engendered World War I and 20 years later World War II is still alive and dangerously vigorous. We only have to look around the present world to realize that. But when the culprits indulge in a triumph of bullshit then we also know that the world is once again in very grave danger.

Creepy Porn Lawyers’ disgusting assault on Tucker Carlson and his 19 year old daughter (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 14.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

Days after ANTIFA targeted Fox News’ Tucker Carlson’s home, trying to intimidate and scare the TV host into curbing his free speech against totalitarian mob rule propagated by ANTIFA and their paymasters, it appears that the SJW establishment swamp is going after Tucker with everything they got…sending in the expendable, and always eager to get publicity, Creepy Porn Lawyer, Michael Avenatti, to try and ensnare Carlson in some sort of racist assault scandal.

The entire event appears to be a staged, purposefully hitting upon all the right identity politics buttons…so as to maximize full SJW pressure on Tucker and Fox News.

The Gateway Pundit reports that Tucker Carlson has denied Michael Avenatti’s charges of assault, and explains that his actions were prompted by an unhinged gay man calling his daughter a wh*re and a c**t…

Creepy porn star Michael Avenatti made headlines again this weekend with trumped up charges of assault against FOX News host Tucker Carlson.

On Saturday Avenatti released video of Tucker Carlson in an argument with a crowd of people at a country club in Virginia.

Avenatti claims Tucker assaulted a gay Latino immigrant for no reason.

Avenatti posted this video made the allegations on Saturday.

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou take a quick look at the SJW swamps’ latest attempt to smear Tucker Carlson, by going after his 19-year old daughter, in a disgusting display of misogyny and hate towards the very women that establishment liberal claims to defend.

Here’s Carlson’s full statement about the incident:

“On October 13, I had dinner with two of my children and some family friends at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia. Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend. On their way back through the bar, a middle aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson. My daughter had never seen the man before. She answered: ‘That’s my dad,’ and pointed to me. The man responded, ‘Are you Tucker’s whore?’ He then called her a ‘f—— c—.’

“My daughter returned to the table in tears. She soon left the table and the club. My son, who is also a student, went into the bar to confront the man. I followed. My son asked the man if he’d called his sister a ‘whore’ and a ‘cunt.’ The man admitted he had, and again become profane. My son threw a glass of red wine in the man’s face and told him to leave the bar, which he soon did.

“Immediately after the incident, I described these events to the management of the Farmington Country Club. The club spent more than three weeks investigating the incident. Last week, they revoked the man’s membership and threw him out of the club.

“I love my children. It took enormous self-control not to beat the man with a chair, which is what I wanted to do. I think any father can understand the overwhelming rage and shock that I felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger. But I restrained myself. I did not assault this man, and neither did my son. That is a lie. Nor did I know the man was gay or Latino, not that it would have mattered. What happened on October 13 has nothing to do with identity politics. It was a grotesque violation of decency. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.”

Former Hillary Clinton Advisor: She’s Running Again in 2020

Clinton admitted that while she doesn’t want to run again — she would “like to be president.”

Via The Gateway Pundit…


Hillary Clinton’s former adviser Mark Penn is warning the public that we should brace ourselves for another run from the power hungry sore loser in 2020.

Penn co-wrote in a Sunday op-ed for the Wall Street Journal that she “won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.”

“True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies,” the op-ed that Penn authored with Andrew Stein claims. “She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.”

Like a cockroach that just won’t die, or the final boss in a video game that keeps obnoxiously coming back after each defeat — Clinton just won’t go away.

Penn said that by “reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination.”

“You can expect her to run for president once again,” he said. “Maybe not at first, when the legions of Senate Democrats make their announcements, but definitely by the time the primaries are in full swing.”

Last month, Clinton admitted that while she doesn’t want to run again — she would “like to be president.”

Even some of her closest allies want her to give it a rest though.

“She’s more likely to win Powerball,” Philippe Reines, Clinton’s longtime adviser, told The Hill.

While nobody really wants to hear that woman’s voice ever again — at least the right can recycle all their best memes from 2016.
