Trump’s Afghan War for “miniskirts”

National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster apparently seduced Donald Trump to go further into war, using a picture of young women in skirts.

News has emerged of the nature of Donald Trump’s long meeting with Defence Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, in which Trump discussed with his top Generals, the efficacy of a troop surge in Afghanistan.

According to the Washington Post , one of the decisive factors in swaying Trump towards agreeing to a troop surge was when General McMaster showed the US President a photo of women walking down the streets of Kabul in the 1970s. The women who would at that time have been living in The Republic of Afghanistan, a secular state, were showed wearing what the Washington Post describes as “miniskirts” while their hair and faces were fully exposed.

The following is believed to be the photo McMaster used in his ultimately successful attempt to persuade Trump of the virtues of war. The photo has been circulating on the internet for several years as an example of Afghanistan’s more secular outlook prior to 1992 when an Islamic Republic was declared.

This incident bears a frightening coloration to the time when it was said Ivanka Trump, the President’s daughter, cried in front of her father when viewing footage of the almost certainly staged chemical attack in Idlib, Syria in April of 2016. Ivanka’s tears were said to be the motivating factor in persuading Donald Trump to bomb Syria on the 6th of April. The story was corroborated by Ivanka’s brother Eric. 

These stories would indicate that Donald Trump’s military decision making process as America’s Commander-in-Chef is widely predicated on emotion’s. it is a dangerous precedent that does not bode well for geo-political stability.

Making matters worse, it is one thing for a man’s daughter to unconsciously tug at her father’s emotional heartstrings, but for a grown man, a seasoned US General and a National Security Advisor to engage in similar behaviour is not only unacceptable but unconscionable. It is a manipulation tactic used against a man who is clearly easily emotionally manipulated.

The role of a National Security Advisor is to offer clear, objective and realistic advice on what moves constitute the best interests of a nation and its people. McMaster clearly sold a President who clearly has an emotional attachment to secularism, a war based on the totally unrealistic goal of changing the character of Afghanistan through bombardment and conflict.

Ironically, in Syria, women do dress in skirts with their hair and faces in full view. The Syrian Arab Republic is a secular, Ba’athist state, one that Donald Trump bombed in a move which implicitly favours jihadist forces who are the opposite of secular and pro-woman.

It seems that Donald Trump is not only a leader guided by emotions but that his emotions don’t always correspond to the facts on the ground.

While legally, the President is ultimately responsible for his final decision, H.R. McMaster apparently conducted himself in a manner that is not fitting of the serious nature of his role.

And another. But if like bush the III, you wanna go looking up skirts….

“…The so-called “exceptional nation” – the one that never tires
of proclaiming its lofty democratic virtues to the rest of the world –
has degenerated into a military-corporatist state. Trump’s betrayal is
complete and stands out as one of the biggest cons in modern political
history.”

I think it’s called “bait and switch”. The “club” that George Carlin spoke of, and that the US people are not part of, has become a master at this tactic of “societal control” with regards to elections.

The other tactic is to make the people fight each other like chickens, while they, the “roosters” rule over all.

This is really deadly ridiculous. With this Trumpus surge we will have “miniskirts in coffins”. More will die for the ego of the “Borg Collective”, aka US/EU/NATO gang.

You haven’t even seen the whole package yet. Mr. Dumb is just warming up. But it is not all bad. Imagine horrors if Mr. Dumb didn’t win. Alt rightards would be like, if Mr. Dumb won then this that and the other thing. Although many of them in Usadistia will not admit what is going on some are having chance of recovering, partially at least.

Nazis, Taliban, Al Qaida, ISIS you name it the US will train them and fund them even create them (white helmets?) to fight against socialist socially secular governments (after all they’re all commies!). Such governments who would wish to control their own resources and make their own decisions to benefit their people. Russia (well they’re still commies pretending to be capitalists), Cuba and North Korea (absolutely crazed commies). Of course it’s nothing to do with the imperialist’s belief (a mantel now donned by the US) that they have a god given right to take by force what ever they want.… Read more »

The US government consists of an idiot dauphin under the control of a junta of generals who, in turn, serve the war industry and Zionists. Only possibility of US population waking up will be if Americans start coming home in body bags at the rate of several hundred a week. Unless that threshold is reached, Americans will sleep until their doom at the hand of our own “government.”

Again, you are unfortunately correct. It’s incredible how this servile mentality has developed in the US.

My disgust meter is off the scale but I cannot find any words to adequately describe this charade for a decision-making govt. I do not agree at all with mcmaster (read patraeus) but I at least thought he was a mature adult-I was wrong.

As I’ve said before, the whole “miniskirt” story is total BS. It’s intended to make Trump’s decisions “human centered”, rather than being all about the MONEY for the military-industrial complex, the MONEY the US might extract from Afghanistan’s mineral wealth, and the ego (on both McMaster and Trump’s part) to not want to admit the US has failed in Afghanistan.

It’s a story for public consumption and never happened.

Actually that photo was taken in the 1970s when Afghanistan was under a progressive socialist government which had given women full and equal rights. America preferred Islamic radicals, however, and backed the Mujahideen which brought them down.

EU leaders dictate Brexit terms to Theresa May (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 115.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss how EU leaders have agreed on a plan to delay the the Article 50 process which effectively postpones Brexit beyond the 29 March deadline.

The UK will now be offered a delay until the 22nd of May, only if MPs approve Theresa May’s withdrawal deal next week. If MPs do not approve May’s negotiated deal, then the EU will support a short delay until the 12th of April, allowing the UK extra time to get the deal passed or to “indicate a way forward”.

UK PM Theresa May said there was now a “clear choice” facing MPs, who could vote for a third time on her deal next week.

Theresa May outlines four Brexit options, via Politico

In a letter to MPs, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May set out the four options she believes the country has in light of Thursday’s decision by EU leaders to extend the Brexit deadline beyond next Friday.

The U.K. is faced with a four-way choice, May wrote late Friday.

The government could revoke Article 50 — which May called a betrayal of the Brexit vote; leave without a deal on April 12; pass her deal in a vote next week; or, “if it appears that there is not sufficient support” for a vote on her deal in parliament next week or if it is rejected for a third time, she could ask for an extension beyond April 12.

But this would require for the U.K. taking part in European elections in May, which the prime minister said “would be wrong.”

May wrote that she’s hoping for the deal to pass, allowing the U.K. to leave the EU “in an orderly way,” adding “I still believe there is a majority in the House for that course of action.”

“I hope we can all agree that we are now at the moment of decision,” she wrote.

US media suffers panic attack after Mueller fails to deliver on much-anticipated Trump indictment

Internet mogul Kim Dotcom said it all: “Mueller – The name that ended all mainstream media credibility.”

RT

Important pundits and news networks have served up an impressive display of denials, evasions and on-air strokes after learning that Robert Mueller has ended his probe without issuing a single collusion-related indictment.

The Special Counsel delivered his final report to Attorney General William Barr for review on Friday, with the Justice Department confirming that there will be no further indictments related to the probe. The news dealt a devastating blow to the sensational prophesies of journalists, analysts and entire news networks, who for nearly two years reported ad nauseam that President Donald Trump and his inner circle were just days away from being carted off to prison for conspiring with the Kremlin to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Showing true integrity, journalists and television anchors took to Twitter and the airwaves on Friday night to acknowledge that the media severely misreported Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, as well as what Mueller’s probe was likely to find. They are, after all, true professionals.

“How could they let Trump off the hook?” an inconsolable Chris Matthews asked NBC reporter Ken Dilanian during a segment on CNN’s ‘Hardball’.

Dilanian tried to comfort the CNN host with some of his signature NBC punditry.

“My only conclusion is that the president transmitted to Mueller that he would take the Fifth. He would never talk to him and therefore, Mueller decided it wasn’t worth the subpoena fight,” he expertly mused.

Actually, there were several Serious Journalists who used their unsurpassed analytical abilities to conjure up a reason why Mueller didn’t throw the book at Trump, even though the president is clearly a Putin puppet.

“It’s certainly possible that Trump may emerge from this better than many anticipated. However! Consensus has been that Mueller would follow DOJ rules and not indict a sitting president. I.e. it’s also possible his report could be very bad for Trump, despite ‘no more indictments,'” concluded Mark Follman, national affairs editor at Mother Jones, who presumably, and very sadly, was not being facetious.

Revered news organs were quick to artfully modify their expectations regarding Mueller’s findings.

“What is collusion and why is Robert Mueller unlikely to mention it in his report on Trump and Russia?” a Newsweek headline asked following Friday’s tragic announcement.

Three months earlier, Newsweek had meticulously documented all the terrible “collusion” committed by Donald Trump and his inner circle.

But perhaps the most sobering reactions to the no-indictment news came from those who seemed completely unfazed by the fact that Mueller’s investigation, aimed at uncovering a criminal conspiracy between Trump and the Kremlin, ended without digging up a single case of “collusion.”

The denials, evasions and bizarre hot takes are made even more poignant by the fact that just days ago, there was still serious talk about Trump’s entire family being hauled off to prison.

“You can’t blame MSNBC viewers for being confused. They largely kept dissenters from their Trump/Russia spy tale off the air for 2 years. As recently as 2 weeks ago, they had @JohnBrennan strongly suggesting Mueller would indict Trump family members on collusion as his last act,” journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted.

While the Mueller report has yet to be released to the public, the lack of indictments makes it clear that whatever was found, nothing came close to the vast criminal conspiracy alleged by virtually the entire American media establishment.

“You have been lied to for 2 years by the MSM. No Russian collusion by Trump or anyone else. Who lied? Head of the CIA, NSA,FBI,DOJ, every pundit every anchor. All lies,” wrote conservative activist Chuck Woolery.

Internet mogul Kim Dotcom was more blunt, but said it all: “Mueller – The name that ended all mainstream media credibility.”

Canadian Lawmaker Accuses Trudeau Of Being A “Fake Feminist” (Video)

Rempel segued to Trudeau’s push to quash an investigation into allegations that he once groped a young journalist early in his political career

Published

Via Zerohedge

Canada’s feminist-in-chief Justin Trudeau wants to support and empower women…but his support stops at the point where said women start creating problems for his political agenda.

That was the criticism levied against the prime minister on Friday by a conservative lawmaker, who took the PM to task for “muzzling strong, principled women” during a debate in the House of Commons.

“He asked for strong women, and this is what they look like!” said conservative MP Michelle Rempel, referring to the former justice minister and attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould, who has accused Trudeau and his cronies of pushing her out of the cabinet after she refused to grant a deferred prosecution agreement to a Quebec-based engineering firm.

She then accused Trudeau of being a “fake feminist”.

“That’s not what a feminist looks like…Every day that he refuses to allow the attorney general to testify and tell her story is another day he’s a fake feminist!”

Trudeau was so taken aback by Rempel’s tirade, that he apparently forgot which language he should respond in.

But Rempel wasn’t finished. She then segued to Trudeau’s push to quash an investigation into allegations that he once groped a young journalist early in his political career. This from a man who once objected to the continued use of the word “mankind” (suggesting we use “peoplekind” instead).

The conservative opposition then tried to summon Wilson-Raybould to appear before the Commons for another hearing (during her last appearance, she shared her account of how the PM and employees in the PM’s office and privy council barraged her with demands that she quash the government’s pursuit of SNC-Lavalin over charges that the firm bribed Libyan government officials). Wilson-Raybould left the Trudeau cabinet after she was abruptly moved to a different ministerial post – a move that was widely seen as a demotion.

Trudeau has acknowledged that he put in a good word on the firm’s behalf with Wilson-Raybould, but insists that he always maintained the final decision on the case was hers and hers alone.

Fortunately for Canadians who agree with Rempel, it’s very possible that Trudeau – who has so far resisted calls to resign – won’t be in power much longer, as the scandal has cost Trudeau’s liberals the lead in the polls for the October election.
