Can Donald Trump trump the GOP’s ideology?

…by Jonas E. Alexis


I have been watching Donald Trump from afar, though I have tried to listen to some of what he says. I have just read his immigration plan, in which he lays out three fundamental principles:

  1. A nation without borders is not a nation
  2. A nation without laws is not a nation
  3. A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation

These are rational and defensible principles and has absolutely nothing to do with hate. In fact, virtually all countries in the entire world are in one way or another based on those fundamental principles. Furthermore, John Adams would have certainly agreed with Trump’s second principle here. In fact, it was Adams who articulated the view that “We have no Constitution which functions in the absence of a moral people.”

But Trump ends up defeating his defensible insight—at least the last two principles—by saying that we need more troops in Iraq. Why? Because we need oil. “You go and knock the hell out of the oil, take back the oil,” he said. “We’re going to have so much money.”[1]

Is that what Trump means by “think Big and kick ass in business and life”?[2] Is that what he means by “basic instincts,” which is actually a chapter from Think Big and Kick Ass in Business and Life? How is knocking “the hell out of the oil” and bragging that “we’re going to have so much money” compatible with the moral law?

Furthermore, how is Trump’s statement about knocking “the hell out of the oil” not compatible with the Dreadful Few’s invasion of Iraq, which led the Middle East into a downward spiral and which is responsible for the deaths of thousands upon thousands of innocent lives? Didn’t some Jewish Neocons argue that they were also going for the oil in Iraq?[3] Jewish Neocon Norman Podhoretz, right after we started bombing Iraq, had already fantasized his greedy hand on the oil:

“I can even [imagine] the turmoil of this war leading to some new species of an imperial mission for America, whose purpose would be to oversee the emergence of successor governments in the region more amenable to reform and modernization than the despotisms now in place. … I can also envisage the establishment of some kind of American protectorate over the oil fields of Saudi Arabia, as we more and more come to wonder why 7,000 princes should go on being permitted to exert so much leverage over us and everyone else.”[4]

As Patrick J. Buchanan put it back in 2003, “Who would benefit from a war of civilizations between the West and Islam? Answer: one nation, one leader, one party. Israel, Sharon, Likud.”[5]

If Iraq “was a big mistake,” as Trump says he believes,[6] how would he go about knocking “the hell out of the oil” without falling into the Neocon trap? Isn’t invading other countries for personal and political gain part of the Neocon’s ideological worldview?

Furthermore, doesn’t Trump know that the Iraq War alone will cost us at least six trillion dollars?[7] Trump again says:

“Look at the war in Iraq and the mess that we’re in. I would never have handled it that way. Does anybody really believe that Iraq is going to be a wonderful democracy where people are going to run down to the voting box and gently put in their ballot and the winner is happily going to step up to lead the county?

“C’mon. Two minutes after we leave, there’s going to be a revolution, and the meanest, toughest, smartest, most vicious guy will take over. And he’ll have weapons of mass destruction, which Saddam didn’t have. What was the purpose of this whole thing? Hundreds and hundreds of young people killed. And what about the people coming back with no arms and legs? Not to mention the other side. All those Iraqi kids who’ve been blown to pieces. And it turns out that all of the reasons for the war were blatantly wrong. All this for nothing!”[8]

Perhaps Donald Trump and his supporter Ann Coulter will have a heart attack if they realize that the Dreadful Few are the ones who are behind illegal immigration.[9] (What is so pathetic is that Ann Coulter—who was trained as a lawyer!—has written an entire chapter on illegal immigration in her recent book Adios America. But she has said absolutely nothing about the real people who are playing with the political remote control, namely, the Dreadful Few.)

Coulter calls Donald Trump’s immigration policy “The greatest political document since the Magna Carta.”[10] Is that the best that Coulter could do? If so, then this woman ought to get out of the media and get a decent job somewhere else.

If Mexico is “beating us at the border and hurting us badly at economic development,”[11] as Trump believes, why doesn’t he ask the deeper questions, namely, how did Mexico end up “beating us” in the first place? Who opened the borders? If “the Mexican government has taken the United States to the cleaners” by “exporting crime and poverty,”[12] does Trump mean to tell us that the Mexican government has the political power to accomplish this?

As we are beginning to see, Trump is not really a person who will actually follow the moral law and political order. Like a squirrel that cannot really make up its mind, Trump changed his views twenty times within just a month! As the Washington Post correctly asserts this time, “Trump seems to be making up his own platform as he goes along.”[13] Even Thomas Sowell himself said that Republican voters have no good reasons to vote for him,

“given his chameleon-like changes in the past…. The danger is not that he will get the nomination, but that his irresponsible talk will become the image of the Republican Party, and that his bombast will drown out more sober voices that need to be heard, thereby making it harder to select the best candidate.”[14]

At one point, Trump seemed to be saying that we ought to stay out of Syria. At another point, he declared, “I will tell you what my plan will be…. You have to go in. You have to go in.” Bill O’Reilly asked him, “With ground troops?” He responded: “Well, you bomb the hell out of them and then you encircle it, and then you go in.”[15]

O’Reilly: “There’s no way you can defeat them without invading.” Trump: “I disagree.” Ladies and gentlemen, this very contradiction happened on the same day during the same interview! Then at a different occasion, he said that we need to defeat ISIS because “We’re going to have so much money.”[16] How would he use that money?

“What I would do with the money that we make, which would be tremendous, I would take care of the soldiers that were killed, the families of the soldiers that were killed, the soldiers, the wounded warriors that are — see, I love them….”[17]

With respect to the Iran nuclear deal, Trump said: “I guarantee you that if I were president, this deal wouldn’t be made, a deal would be made that’s 100 times better.”[18] Then Trump shot himself in the leg by saying: “It’s very tough to do, when you say, ‘Rip up a deal.’ Because I’m a deal person…. I would police that contract so tough that they don’t have a chance.”[19] Chuck Todd, NBC: “So the deal lives, in a Trump administration?” Trump: “It’s very hard to say, ‘We’re ripping up.’”[20]

With respect to Israel, Trump made the claim that Obama is “one of the worst things that’s happened” to the Jewish State.”[21] In a sense, that is true, since the Obama administration was the first to call the Prime Minister of Israel “a chickenshit.” But Trump’s statement once again confirms the view that if he happens to be elected, he will be subservient to his boss, namely, the Israeli regime.

Lastly, Trump declared quite explicitly that John McCain is not a war hero. Yet at a different occasion, he declared that he is a war hero. So which one is it. Is Trump doing this to amuse us all?

In any event, it has been said that “Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, converted back to Judaism in 2009 and observes Shabbat along with her husband, Jared Kushner.”[22] Trump’s former wife, Marla Maples, is a Southern Baptist and Kabbalist.[23] The Jewish Journal reported back in 2004 that Maples “has been studying kabbalah for seven years” and has claimed that Israel is a land of “peace.”[24]

I know that the Neocons seem to mistrust Trump,[25] but if he happens to make it a little further, he almost certainly will end up serving his masters. Trump’s family has already served their ideological or subversive religion (Kabbalah).[26]

As a matter of fact, Trump may well be one of the Neocon’s best candidates, since he has already been serving Mammon, which to Karl Marx and people like Heinrich Heine was the god of the Dreadful Few. If you are skeptical, then consider this.

When Trump’s for-profit college got into trouble for fraud in 2013, it was Michael Cohen, his ally and executive vice president of the Trump Organization, who stood up for him.[27] Now get this, while Donald Trump is called illegal immigrants “rapists,” the Israeli newspaper has reported that he “gives Israel political bear [a] hug.”[28]

Another point to consider is this. Why would Trump even consider Sarah Palin for a cabinet position? Doesn’t he know that this woman serves her masters only? Doesn’t he know that Palin has been singing that the U.S. needs to bomb Iran since 2010? Doesn’t he know that Palin got that song from Jewish Neocon Daniel Pipes?[29]

Doesn’t Trump know that puppets like John Bolton was singing the same Neocon song?[30] Doesn’t he know that the Neocons applauded virtually every idiotic thing Palin said because she supported their dreams?[31] Doesn’t he know that AIPAC supported virtually everything Palin said as well?[32] Doesn’t he know that Palin used to sport the Star of David?[33]

Palin had this to say in 2009:

“I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to be expanded upon, because that population of Israel is, is going to grow. More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead.”[34]

Trump said Palin “really is somebody who knows what’s happening and she’s a special person, she’s really a special person and I think people know that.”[35] Palin returned the favor by saying that Trump is

“connecting with the people, and what it is that we’ve been saying all along. Finally we have someone with the guts, who isn’t bought by anyone, he doesn’t belong to anyone. He’s his own man. He’s very independent. So I am very pleased that he is offering himself up in the name of service to our country.”

Listen to Palin very carefully here:

If “waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists,” how is it that Palin is not asking the United States to waterboard the Israeli regime, most recently Benjamin Netanyahu? Doesn’t Palin know that the Israeli regime and ISIS are almost two sides of the same coin?[36] Doesn’t he know that the regime has been involved in terrorist activities and ethnic cleansing since the establishment of Israel as a nation?[37]

Israeli intellectual and scholar Eyal Weizman, who is now at Princeton, wrote in 2007 that

“targeted assassinations have become the most significant and frequent form of Israeli military target. From the beginning of the Intifada to the end of 2006, 339 Palestinians were killed in targeted assassinations. [45 of the victims] were children.

“The policy of targeted assassinations…cannot be understood according to the logic of terrorist prevention alone; rather, it has become a political tool in Israel’s attempt to maintain control in the Palestinian areas from which it has territorially withdrawn, and so has a territorial dimension.”[38]

Doesn’t Palin know that the Israelis were responsible for the attack on the USS Liberty? Retired U.S. Navel Officer James N. Ennes, author of Assault on the Liberty,[39] and one of the crew members aboard the ship at the time of the attack, declared that the Israelis knew exactly what they were doing. Ennes once told me that the U.S. should have cut the so-called special relationship with Israel then, but no one had the guts to do it.

So, if Palin is dancing like a puppet and saying ridiculous things like “waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists,” we you know that she has been deliberately duped. As a matter of fact, much of the Republican Party has been bought and paid for by the Israeli regime.

In short, Trump’s blatant inconsistency shows that either he is manipulating the system or the Dreadful Few is manipulating him—or perhaps both. You remember how the WASP ruling class like the Rockefellers worked with the Dreadful Few to defeat the Catholics?[40] And you remember how the Rockefellers and even Margaret Sanger themselves promoted abortion in the process? Now those people are complaining because they do not have enough children for the next generation. Who’s responsible for this? The Mexicans? The blacks? When are those people going to start taking things a little more seriously?

In any event, perhaps Rod Dreher was right after all:

“The idea that Donald Trump — Donald Freaking Trump! — is the embodiment of American populism is, to me, a sign of political decadence. The man is a plutocratic billionaire known only for his flashy swagger, his boundless egotism, his trophy wives, his casinos, and for being a reality TV star. If David Rockefeller were a hip-hop superstar, he would be Donald Trump. He is a demagogue…

“This is not to say that Trump does not identify real problems. For example, immigration, and control of our borders, is not a made-up concern, though I think it’s inextricable from the economic ideology of the open-borders free marketers running the Republican Party, and the ethnic politics of the Democratic Party.

“And they’re right: it is, for a number of reasons. Trump is someone onto whom they can project their fears, their hatreds, and their concerns — some of them, let us concede, perfectly legitimate! Trumpism offers a simple explanation for why things are the way they are, and offers a simple solution: vote for a strong man who will renew our national pride by standing manfully up to the people who are bringing America down.”[41]
