2018 Prediction - More Dangerous, Incendiary, Political Incoherence and Bafflegab from Trump

Barron Trump, President Donald Trump
and Melania Trump New Years 2017/2018
"Riddle Me This!"

It is the first morning of the first day of 2018. I hope it is not too late for another geopolitical prediction for the New Year that is fast upon us. Late in 2017 I read a very good analysis of Trump's first year in the Presidency that was published in PressTV. Here it is in its entirety and I will have comments to follow:

***********************
"US President Donald Trump’s first year in the White House has been a complete failure, according to Myles Hoenig, an American political analyst and activist. 
Hoenig, a former Green Party candidate for Congress, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday when asked what Trump has achieved in 2017, and whether he has delivered on his campaign promises.
“With President Trump, we really got a president like no other. No one expected the erudition of a JFK or the appearance of the ‘coolness’ of a Barack Obama, but did we really expect a cross between Berlusconi of Italy and the cartoon character Peter Griffin of Family Guy?” Hoenig said.
“By nearly all measures, Trump is a failure his first year. Except for his signature welfare for the uber-wealthy tax reform bill, he has no legislative history to date. Much of what he has accomplished has been through presidential fiat, his executive orders,” he added.
“He has proven himself to be a lot less than what his publicists (and he) have been proclaiming for decades. The fantastic deal maker failed in nearly every legislative venture he attempted, until the welfare bill for his Mar a Lago patrons,” the analyst said.  
“He failed at repealing Obamacare, building a wall and having Mexico pay for it, or improving the economy, except that those with the economic power believe the economy is doing well. He was successful in doing all things negative that he promised. The US no longer abides by the Paris Agreements, he’s terminating US’s agreement with Iran on the nuclear deal and he’s imposed travel bans to the US on Muslims, specifically targeting them,” the activist noted.
“What Trump will most be remembered for the first year is his boorish behavior, his intellectual witlessness and promotion of hate. Trump’s idiotic tweets reflect his thinking at the moment, which sometimes had changed to something even more idiotic or contradictory,” he continued.  
“He has attempted to bully every person he could, but like most bullies, he has met his match with the world community, namely the UN in its recent rebuke of the Jerusalem [al-Quds] embassy fiasco. Yet the most damning of all his ‘accomplishments’ is his promotion of hate towards people,” Hoenig said.
“President Obama may have been primarily responsible for bringing Nazis back into power in Europe in Ukraine, but President Trump comes out and calls them ‘good guys’ when they attack and even kill an American protester. He had inspired a nation to target immigrants, but his DACA reversal is backfiring and there’s a new wave of tolerance afoot for such immigrants,” he observed.  
“The only thing scarier for 2018 is seeing a President Pence. We’re in for a rough year,” the commentator said in his concluding remarks.

Well, just a few hours into the New Year, Trump did not disappoint in terms of continuing his boorish and bullying "Tweets". Here his his latest one, against nominal ally Pakistan. Please read the following from Breitbart.com and I will tie up the loose cannon ends afterwards:

Trump: ‘No More’ Aid to Pakistan, ‘They Have Given Us Nothing but Lies and Deceit’

President Donald Trump lashed out at Pakistan on Twitter just a few minutes past 7:00 a.m. Eastern time on New Year’s Day, expressing frustration at Islamabad’s inadequate efforts against terrorism and implying that U.S. foreign aid will be terminated as a result.

The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!

The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!

It is not yet clear whether the “no more” exclamation means the complete or partial termination, or temporary suspension, of American aid to Pakistan.

If the complete termination of U.S. foreign aid does indeed become official policy, it would be a far more dramatic step than withholding all or part of America’s $255 million in military assistance to Pakistan, a measure reportedly under consideration by the administration over the past few days after Pakistan refused to allow U.S. interrogators access to a captured terrorist from the hostage-taking Haqqani network.

In August, President Trump said the “next pillar” of his strategy for battling terrorism would involve a “change in our approach to Pakistan.”

Trump accused Pakistan of giving “safe haven to agents of chaos, violence, and terror.”

“We can no longer be silent about Pakistan’s safe havens for terrorist organizations, the Taliban and other groups that pose a threat to the region and beyond,” the president said. ”These killers need to know they have nowhere to hide – that no place is beyond the reach of American arms.

The Trump administration withheld $50 million in military aid to Pakistan over the summer because it felt Islamabad was not doing enough to bring down the Taliban and the Haqqani Network. There was some criticism at the time that despite his strong complaints about Pakistan refusing to help fight the Taliban or even actively colluding with it, Trump was dealing more harshly with Egypt over human rights violations by its government.

The Pakistani military rescued a Canadian-American family held hostage for years by the Haqqanis in October. Concerns have been raised that even this rescue might have been the result of a deal between the Pakistanis and the militant network, which has long been suspected of enjoying special favors and protection from elements of the Pakistani security apparatus. The prisoner Pakistan refused to allow the United States to interview was tied to the kidnapping of this Canadian-American family.

On Thursday, Pakistani military spokesman Major-General Asif Ghafoor warned the United States against taking “unilateral” military action on its soil and denied his country was not doing enough to fight the Taliban and its allies, promising that the results of Pakistan’s counterterrorism operations would be “seen in subsequent years and months.”

After making this declaration, Ghafoor implied Pakistan could actually do more, once its concerns about Afghan refugees are addressed. “If there are any facilitators and abetters inside Pakistan that can only be addressed if the 2.7 million Afghan refugees are sent back to Afghanistan,” he said."

greencrow comments: Even Breitbart doesn't tell the truth about why Trump suddenly and impetuously lashed out at Pakistan. It would appear that Americans are forbidden to learn the end game that their [Deep State run] government is pursuing. What is sad is the totalitarian force running the US does not even want the citizens to know what it perceives to be existential threats against its own regime!

One has to search high and low and into the strangest of Internet spaces to find out what was actually behind Trump's Tweet...and here it is...as if laid out by a neat waiter...by "Whatdoesitmean", that quirky little dysinfo site run by a nun. In the map below, readers will easily see what has got Trump's trousers in a twist and his knickers in a knot....Pakistan is going to participate with China and Russia in the Silk Road - One Belt, One Road project.

This is the reason for Trump's Angry Tweet against
Pakistan this morning.  Can you see where the Silk Road
passes through Pakistan in its way to China?

....."[China h]aving the power to unite nearly the entire world in an economic zone of sustainable trade and manufacturing from Asia to Europe, China’s One Belt One Road initiative has ignited the hopes of many nations yearning for peace from American’s decades long wars—and is why the Russian Finance Ministry is planning to place an issue of bonds in Chinese Yuan worth $1 billion on the domestic market in 2018—and is why Pakistan is now planning to dump the US Dollar and trade in Chinese Yuan, too.

In their knowing that these actions will lead to the Chinese Yuan destroying the US Dollar, from which the nation destroying American war machine derives all of its power from, this report notes, the United States struck back viciously—with its first, on 20 December, issuing an Executive Order as predication from which it can start a global mineral war—followed a day later, on 21 December, by its shockingly declaring it was selling offensive weapons to the Nazis in Ukraine—and, on 31 December, stunningly cutting off $255 million in military aid to Pakistan."

greencrow says: So, readers, One of the main reasons why the Trump presidency was such a bust, failure, counter productive effort last year was his reliance on the pidgin language of Twitter to communicate with the citizens he is supposed to be leading. Nobody knows what the hell he's saying or why he's saying it. 90% of effective leadership is clear communication. People want to know where they're going and why. They don't want to be flummoxed time and again with incoherent bafflegab and talk in riddles. Here is an analysis in PressTV of why Trump lambasted Pakistan and it's the same reason I found in WDIM above....because Pakistan is making nice with China....and Iran.

The most perplexing aspect of Trump's continuing failure to communicate is that he has as an example before him one of the greatest leaders and communicators of all times. All Trump has to do is study Putin's talks to his Russian compatriots. Putin's yearly fireside chats. where he goes into all the background behind his decision-making. would be an excellent tutorial that could benefit even the most mediocre student (which Trump is). But, if Trump does not have the ability to focus on Putin's hour + TV talks...then at least he could watch the video below of Putin's yearly message. It's short, clear, specific, positive and inspiring. Compare the speech below to Trump's "Tweet".

Putin's New Years Greeting 2018

Unfortunately, Trump would not be able to round out a similar speech to Americans with such a stirring and beautiful National Anthem [starting at 4.29]....playing the "Star Spangled Banner"? No, better skip that.

Of course Trump is ineffectual. Just look at his past to know that without the jew, this would be a stellar failure of a man.

He is not this genius the media keeps telling us. This is obvious.

I can go back and show predictions of what we are seeing, especially the belligerent jew-led haranguing of Iran and others. This was after he bullshitted everyone into believing he was anti-war.

BUILD THE WALL (while allowing more illegals in). There were fewer deportations than under Obama and Bush. TAX BREAK. Yippee (until the ravaging of the Big Money tax clowns makes the trinket he gave poor folks moot).

People are gullible suckers. It never ends.

And jews win.
