Soft coup success? Wall Street and military-industrial complex run US Presidency

Now that Steve Bannon is out, and Trump’s non-interventionist, America first advisors have been picked off one by one, a Goldman Sachs/Military Generals US run White House is gearing up for more war, starting with Afghanistan.

Neocons like Lindsey Graham and John McCain are ecstatic…

The mainstream liberal media is so happy with the Afghanistan ramp up they refused to lay down any criticism of a “Trump decision”…which is rare indeed, considering the liberal media finds fault in just about anything Trump says or does.

To get a better understanding of what is really going on in Washington DC, Mike Krieger from Liberty Blitzkrieg pulls back the curtain, and deep state misdirection taking place…pointing out three key points lost in the translation, but spoken clearly by POTUS Trump during his Afghanistan speech.

  1. First, Trump says he doesn’t think the U.S. should pull out because “our nation must seek an honorable and enduring outcome.”  At 16 years old, this is already the longest war in American history. It was a war started after the most deadly terrorist attack on American soil, and near the height the U.S. imperial power. Nevertheless, the war’s been a complete and total failure. It was a failure under Bush, it was a failure under Obama and it will be a failure under Trump. To believe that Trump will usher in an “honorable and enduring outcome” in Afghanistan is to say he will succeed where his predecessors failed merely because…he’s Trump. Not gonna happen.
  2. Trump’s second conclusion is that he doesn’t want to repeat what he deems to have been the big mistake made in Iraq; namely, that the U.S. left too soon. This is extremely telling. He doesn’t talk about how the war was based on a gigantic lie pushed by neocons and the “liberal” corporate press from The Washington Post to The New York TimesThe biggest mistake in Iraq was starting the war in the first place. If we can’t admit such an obvious lesson from Iraq, of course all the solutions we come up will prove to be failures. The American empire is running on empty, fueled by never-ending insanity and a drive to vacuum in billions exporting weapons. There’s no vision, no wisdom and absolutely no exit strategy.
  3. Trump’s third point revolves around how Pakistan has become a growing problem due to its harboring terrorists. He demands a change of course and increased cooperation. Guess which country he didn’t mention? The greatest sponsor of Islamic radicalization the world has ever seen: Saudi Arabia. This once again proves that Trump represents the same old tired thinking that’s been running the U.S. economy and society into the ground for decades. This is now a 100% establishment Presidency, which will be completely defined by establishment thinking. In other words, imperial collapse is coming.

By Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog…

As I noted in last Friday’s piece, Donald Trump Finally Comes Out of the Closet, the firing of Steve Bannon represents the most significant event to occur during the Trump administration thus far. For the purposes of this piece, it’s important to review some of what I wrote:


Irrespective of what you think of Bannon, him being out means Wall Street and the military-industrial complex is now 100% in control of the Trump administration. Prepare for an escalation of imperial war around the world and an expansion of brutal oligarchy.

The removal of Bannon is the end of even a facade of populism. This is now the Goldman Sachs Presidency with a thin-skinned, unthinking authoritarian as a figurehead. Meanwhile, guess who’s still there in addition to the Goldman executives? Weed obsessed, civil asset forfeiture supporting Jefferson Sessions. The Trump administration just bacame ten times more dangerous than it was before. With the coup successful, Trump no longer needs to be impeached.

Here’s another prediction. Watch the corporate media start to lay off Trump a bit more going forward. Rather than hysterically demonize him for every little thing, corporate media will increasingly give him more of the benefit of the doubt. After all, a Presidency run by Goldman Sachs and generals is exactly what they like. Trump finally came out of the closet as the anti-populist oligarch he is, and the results won’t be pretty.


Of course, his cheerleaders will remain enthusiastically in denial about what’s happened to their hero, but Trump has been totally brought to heel, a fact that’ll become increasingly crystal clear in the months ahead. This is now your standard Wall Street and military-industrial complex run Presidency.

Last night’s announcement of a recommitment to the Afghanistan war is the earliest evidence that Trump has been completely castrated and will now play by status quo rules with little to no friction. This Presidency will very quickly begin to look like the fifth George W. Bush term (Obama was three and four), on every single issue of genuine importance to oligarchs. Wedge cultural issues will continue to be hyped up hysterically by the corporate media since people can’t help themselves from taking the bait. It’s the perfect way to divide and conquer the populace, while pushing through what they really want. Oligarchs could care less about the outcomes of social issues, which is why they intentionally and incessantly hype them up. They’ll do anything to prevent the public from coming together in opposition to war, Wall Street bailouts and elite criminality generally, and the public is very easy to manipulate. The quicker smart Trump voters wise up to what’s happened, the better.

If you haven’t watched Trump’s Afghanistan speech by now you really should. It’s not good enough to read anyone else’s summary, you need to hear it for yourselves. It’s only 25 minutes long.

As I started listening, I sensed myself getting angry. It was the same empty, bullshit propaganda I’ve been hearing from U.S. Presidents my entire life. This broken record of disingenuousness has become simply unbearable, and even worse, I know it’s going to work on millions upon millions of Americans. We refuse to think for ourselves, and we refuse to admit the obvious. There will be hell to pay for this ignorance and denial.

Trump begins by explaining to the American public why he made a flip-flop that would make Barack Obama blush. He claims there are three conclusions he came to as a result of his grand introspection and wisdom. Let’s tackle the absurdity of each of them one by one.

First, he says he doesn’t think the U.S. should pull out because “our nation must seek an honorable and enduring outcome.” Let’s revisit a few facts. First, at 16 years old, this is already the longest war in American history. It was a war started after the most deadly terrorist attack on American soil, and near the height the U.S. imperial power. Nevertheless, the war’s been a complete and total failure. It was a failure under Bush, it was a failure under Obama and it will be a failure under Trump. To believe that Trump will usher in an “honorable and enduring outcome” in Afghanistan is to say he will succeed where his predecessors failed merely because…he’s Trump. Not gonna happen.

His second conclusion is that he doesn’t want to repeat what he deems to have been the big mistake made in Iraq; namely, that the U.S. left too soon. This is extremely telling. He doesn’t talk about how the war was based on a gigantic lie pushed by neocons and the “liberal” corporate press from The Washington Post to The New York TimesThe biggest mistake in Iraq was starting the war in the first place. If we can’t admit such an obvious lesson from Iraq, of course all the solutions we come up will prove to be failures. The American empire is running on empty, fueled by never-ending insanity and a drive to vacuum in billions exporting weapons. There’s no vision, no wisdom and absolutely no exit strategy.

His third point revolves around how Pakistan has become a growing problem due to its harboring terrorists. He demands a change of course and increased cooperation. Guess which country he didn’t mention? The greatest sponsor of Islamic radicalization the world has ever seen: Saudi Arabia. This once again proves that Trump represents the same old tired thinking that’s been running the U.S. economy and society into the ground for decades. This is now a 100% establishment Presidency, which will be completely defined by establishment thinking. In other words, imperial collapse is coming.

Then towards the end of the speech, Trump says the following:


In every generation we have faced down evil, and we have always prevailed. We prevailed because we know who we are and what we are fighting for.


Unfortunately, here’s the cold hard truth: We have no idea who we are, and we have no idea what we are fighting for. We’ve become the very evil he claims to be fighting against as the nation morphed into a pernicious, destructive, and immoral empire. This is the heart of the problem — we are constantly lying to ourselves. Of course, we’ll never set things on the right track if we can’t diagnose the disease in the first place.

We’ve torched our national treasure and goodwill by running around the world trying to push everybody around, and simultaneously institutionalized a corrupt and predatory neo-feudal society at home. We’ve ignored our own people in a foolish and self-destructive quest to maintain and grow empire and the results will not be pretty.

Finally, let’s end with a little something to contemplate.


Speaking of the latest military surge about to take affect in Afghanistan, Tucker Carlson questions the strategy and the never ending military “training” spent on foreign armies only to lead to dysfunctional, broken nations.

Pentagon took control while we all watched the President Bill infidelity show with the Jewess Monica….helped along by the president’s wifey. Immagine the deal she made with them. Patraeus was given the Jewess Paula to make sure he didn’t get a conscience or have a late night talk with his wife.

As a British Indian, I am now seriously worried about Pakistan. After Trump’s lynching I fear that the war will spread to Pakistan, where the drone killings are all too common. Why is Pakistan allowing such violations? India has no choice but to keep out of the US/EU/NATO mess in Afghanistan. India can be best friends to Pakistan by reminding its ancient “brotherly” country that true sovereignty starts by throwing the US out. It is NATO that must respond to Trumpus’s U-turn in Afghanistan, where it invoked article 5. This is a quote from the London Evening Standard editorial: “NATO… Read more »

US Department of Defense’s estimates have put Afghanistan’s untapped
wealth of gold, copper, uranium and other rare-earth minerals at well
around $1 trillion to $3 trillion,plus the largest resource of lithium in the world,as well as heroin.

That can probably explain Washington’s willingness to continue the war in
Afghanistan, which has dragged on for 16 years and has cost the US

Yes interesting.. we have been lied about the TRUE HISTORY OF THIS PLANET…The old and original bibles like THE BOOK OF ENOCH and THE GNOSTIC BIBLE and THE SUMERIAN BIBLE speak THE TRUTH while there are 78 bibles which come from the KING JAMES BIBLE which is not the truth. THE JEWS OF TODAY are not the jews of the bible and 90% of those that claim to be jewish are NOT..THEY ARE KHAZARS..even the SEPHARDIC JEWS know this and do not respect the other 90% as jews. The president of Turkey and his son is a CRYPTO JEW and… Read more »

This article is a hundred percent correct. Trump is completely irrelevant now. No one should care what he says or does because he’s not doing it. His masters are. He is as the article says “completely castrated.” Pepe Escobar used to call Barack Obama the “paperboy” – because all he did was deliver the news from his rich elite Chicago masters. Trump isn’t even a paperboy. He’s a slave locked up in the White House and only trotted out for tweets and the occasional speech. He may not even be the one tweeting for that matter. The destruction of US… Read more »

“If you haven’t watched Trump’s Afghanistan speech by now you really should. It’s not good enough to read anyone else’s summary, you need to hear it for yourselves.”

To anyone who thought that Trump would “out” the farce that is 9/11, Trumps speech put that idea to rest!

Hmmm This article is one hundred percent WRONG! The Zionist cabal lead by the ubber Zionist dual citizen Jared Kushner, which maintains a large majority on the National Security Council, is calling the foreign policy shots. Virtually every single member of the Trump administration that opposed support for war and Israel and its illegal annexation of Palestine and the Golan Heights has been forced out. Note also that none of the Jewish/Zionist/dual citizen Israelis in the Trump adminstration have gone. The Generals were brought in to ensure that the wars for Israeli empire can continue with maximum effect, nothing more.… Read more »

Just an 8 Y-worded rating on what you posted here, Mike Krieger and Alex Christoforou, in appreciation for news confirmed. It’s silly, I know, but it’s a lesson learned and fully registered for me, and it goes:

“With the coup successful” – YIKES (1) – “Trump no longer needs to be impeached” – YAAY (2) – because “Trump has been completely castrated” – YOWZEE YOWZEE YOWZEE (5) – and “imperial collapse is coming” – YES YAHWEH YES (8).

8 out of 10 – that’s pretty good for a bad, bad, very bad news.
