8D Chess? Trump’s Armada Actually Not Steaming toward North Korea

President Donald Trump repeatedly said on the campaign trail last year that he would not warn the enemy beforehand as to his intentions.

This story offers a critical look at a Trump deception aimed at Kim Jong Un.

When U.S. President Donald Trump boasted early last week that he had sent an “armada” as a warning to North Korea, the aircraft carrier strike group he spoke of was still far from the Korean peninsula, and headed in the opposite direction.

It was even farther away over the weekend, moving through the Sunda Strait and then into the Indian Ocean, as North Korea displayed what appeared to be new missiles at a parade and staged a failed missile test.

The U.S. military’s Pacific Command explained on Tuesday that the strike group first had to complete a shorter-than-initially planned period of training with Australia. But it was now “proceeding to the Western Pacific as ordered,” it said.

The perceived communications mix-up has raised eyebrows among Korea experts, who wonder whether it erodes the Trump administration’s credibility at a time when U.S. rhetoric about the North’s advancing nuclear and missile capabilities are raising concerns about a potential conflict.

“If you threaten them and your threat is not credible, it’s only going to undermine whatever your policy toward them is. And that could be a logical conclusion from what’s just happened,” said North Korea expert Joel Wit at the 38 North monitoring group, run by Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies.

The U.S. military initially said in a statement dated April 10 that Admiral Harry Harris, the commander of Pacific Command, directed the Carl Vinson strike group “to sail north and report on station in the Western Pacific.”

Reuters and other news outlets reported on April 11 that the movement would take more than a week. The Navy, for security reasons, says it does not report future operational locations of its ships.

The Korean expert quoted here, (((Joel Wit))), is off base. The more deception directed toward an enemy the better. Trump clearly wanted to shift Kim’s attention toward a shift in policy. Mike Pence went to South Korea to articulate the same idea. Trump and Pence moved quickly and decisively. The liberal press isn’t used to that.

VP Mike Pence Visits Dachau, Promises Concentration Camps for American Jews

America’s Vice President, Mike Pence, pictured above, wore his full Nazi uniform to celebrate the extermination of the Juden vermin at Dachau during his visit on Sunday.

America’s lovable Nazi was quoted as saying, “The Jews got what was coming to them.”

Back home in America, Chancellor Trump was lavish in his praise for his VP, “Mike is going to oversee the construction of hundreds of our very own Dachaus. They’re going to be great, beautiful camps and Israel will pay for them.”

The lying Judenpresse falsely reports the story this way:

ABC News

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence paid a somber visit to the site of the Dachau concentration camp on Sunday, walking along the grounds where tens of thousands of people were killed during World War II.

Pence was joined by his wife, Karen, and the couple’s 23-year-old daughter, Charlotte, as they toured the exhibits at the former concentration camp that was established by the Nazis in 1933 near Munich.

The vice president was accompanied by Abba Naor, a survivor of the camp, and other dignitaries as he passed through the wrought-iron gate bearing the inscription, “Arbeit macht frei,” or “Work sets you free.” The Pences placed a wreath beneath the International Memorial at the center of the camp, toured the barracks and viewed the ovens inside the crematorium.

The Pences also stopped at religious memorials at the site and later attended a church service on the camp’s grounds.

The concentration camp for political prisoners and Jews near Dachau was the first such facility in Germany. In 1935 other groups, among them Jehovah’s Witnesses, gays and emigrants, were sent there. After a larger facility was built, more political prisoners and more than 11,000 German and Austrian Jews were sent there in 1938. In time, more than 200,000 people from across Europe were held at Dachau and subsidiary camps, and more than 40,000 died. The camp was liberated by U.S. forces in April 1945.

As Chancellor Trump has noted over and over, the Judenpresse publishes fake news. When told of Pence’s strong approval of gassing the Jews, Trump again weighed in with, “Pence is my man. Do I have a great VP or what? Bigly.”

Former Congressman Kucinich on Trump: Deep State’s Aim is to Foment Profitable Cold War with Russia

Dennis Kucinich may be a liberal, but he tells the truth as he sees it, rather than sticking to the New World Order narrative. He’s a former Congressman from Ohio, if you’re not familiar with him. He’s also often politically incorrect.

I rate this video very highly. If you can spare 8 minutes, you’ll understand better the crisis that America is experiencing now.

“Whether you’re for Trump or against Trump, the White House is under attack from elements inside the intelligence community, which are trying to elevate tensions between Russia and the US! At the bottom of that is money & an agenda to cash-in on conflict! There’s a game going on inside the intelligence community where there are those who want to separate the US from Russia in a way that would re-ignite the cold war…Wake up America!”

White nationalists Disappointed by Michael Flynn Resignation as #pizzagate Connection Raised by Hillary Clinton

I’m struggling with an octopus tonight. There are so many tentacles to the octopus that is the Michael Flynn story that it seems that’s all I’m writing about. This is my fourth post on the topic in a little over 24 hours.

Really, the AOL piece covered in this post isn’t much in the way of news. Of course Trump supporters are upset by Trump calling for General Flynn’s resignation. But the value is that this story reminded me of General Flynn’s son’s unwavering desire to keep the #pizzagate investigation open.

Thus, we should consider the possibility that Flynn was taken out because of that factor. Hillary Clinton retweeted the following Flynn/#pizzagate Tweet:

Hillary Clinton added:

The fact that Hillary Clinton would even raise the issue of #pizzagate suggests to me her incredible arrogance. She must believe that she’ll never pay for her sins. A higher power than me might have something to say about that.

AOL

White nationalists and “alt-right” commenters on the internet are upset by the sudden resignation of Michael Flynn, President Trump’s national security adviser. Flynn, a retired U.S. Army Lt. General, quit late Monday after reports that he’d lied to Vice President Mike Pence and other White House officials over the details of his communication with Russia’s ambassador to the United States.

Disappointment over Flynn’s resignation, 24 days after assuming the role, was felt widely in internet discussion boards like Stormfront and The Daily Stormer, alt-right outlets. Members blamed everyone from the media, Mike Pence, the intelligence community and Jews.

Andrew Anglin, creator of the neo-Nazi news blog The Daily Stormer offered his own commentary, labeling Flynn as “one of our best guys,” and describing the resignation as “definitely a loss. To the Jews.” The website’s readers agreed, several called Flynn “the kind of person we need on our team,” “stand up,” and that he was “too pro-white” for the administration.

A prominent “alt-right” news blog edited by white supremacist Richard Spencer also aired its dismay over the news, considering the resignation “a huge mistake.”

Michael Flynn was no stranger to controversy prior to his conversation with the Russian ambassador. He used his social media account to spread numerous fake news stories and conspiracy theories relating to Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama.

The Flynn Flap is Leading to the Quick Impeachment of Donald J. Trump

Muh Russians. Muh Russians.

The (((Deep State))) smells blood in the water now.

This post is being sourced from several liberal new sites in order to expose the pattern that the narrative is now taking. That narrative is following the pattern of Watergate, as I remember it.

This first excerpt is by (((David Frum,))) a real piece of work with a hatred of Republicans. I’ve crossed through the unproven parts.

Excerpt from The Atlantic

Title: Why Flynn’s Resignation Matters

To put the story in simplest terms:

1) Russian spies hacked Democratic Party communications in order to help elect Donald Trump.

2) Donald Trump welcomed the help, used it, publicly solicited more of it—and was then elected president of the United States.

3) President Obama sanctioned Russia for its pro-Trump espionage.

4) While Russia considered its response, its ambassador spoke with the national security adviser-designate about the sanctions

5) The adviser, Flynn, reportedly asked Russia not to overreact, signaling that the new administration would review the sanctions; Russia did not respond.

6) As president-elect and then president, Donald Trump has indicated that he seeks to lift precisely those sanctions caused by Russia’s espionage work on his behalf.

All of this takes place against the background of Donald Trump’s seeming determination to align U.S. foreign policy ever closer to Russia’s: endorsing the annexation of Crimea, supporting Russia’s war aims in Syria, casting doubt on the U.S. guarantee to NATO allies, cheering on the breakup of the European Union.

It takes place, too, in the context of Trump’s murky corporate financial obligations to Russian entities. “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Donald Trump Jr. told an investor conference in 2008. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.” Exactly how much money is unknown to anyone outside the Trump Organization, because of the president’s repeated refusal to embrace financial transparency. But the pattern of Trump wealth-seeking in Russia has been widely reported, including the multimillion-dollar windfall profit gained from the sale of a Palm Beach mansion to a Russian oligarch at a particularly tense time in the Trump family finances—the same period when he was lending his name to such shabby operations as Trump University and Trump Steaks.

Flynn is the third Trump associate to resign because of the revelation of close connections to the Russian state: Paul Manafort and Carter Page preceded him. Will more follow?

Those Republicans who never cared much for Trump have seized the moment, preparing for the coup d’etat just around the corner.

Washington Post (paywall after 10 free looks per month)

Top Republican and Democratic senators pledged Tuesday to deepen their investigation of Russian involvement in the 2016 election in the wake of Michael T. Flynn’s resignation as President Trump’s national security adviser, opening a new and potentially uncomfortable chapter in the uneasy relationship between Trump and Capitol Hill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said such an investigation is “highly likely,” and the top two members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), stood side by side Tuesday to announce that the committee’s ongoing probe must include examination of any contacts between campaign officials and the Russian government.

By digging around in Congress, Trump’s power to govern is impaired. The hope among Trump’s enemies of such an investigation is to manufacture evidence that can justify impeachment.

There are the #nevertrump Deep State neocons who reject the democratic process. An impeachment would be nothing to these traitors.

Excerpt from The Week

The whole episode is evidence of the precipitous and ongoing collapse of America’s democratic institutions — not a sign of their resiliency. Flynn’s ouster was a soft coup (or political assassination) engineered by anonymous intelligence community bureaucrats. The results might be salutary, but this isn’t the way a liberal democracy is supposed to function.

We’re always going to lose the Twitter war because Jack obliterates pro-Trump Tweeters’ accounts.

A few relevant pro-Trump Tweets make it through:

Breaking! General Flynn “Resigns”

flashing red light gif

Pro-Trump, alt-light blogger Mike Cernovich calls the disposal of General Michael Flynn by the Trump administration a coup. Reince Priebus, a weakling at best and a back stabber at worst, was probably behind the “resignation.”

The General had been kicked out of government by Obama for exposing Obama/Clinton incompetence and lies, and so his restoration to power had been welcomed by patriots.

Now, we regroup.

Fox News

President Trump’s embattled national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned Monday night, Fox News reported.

The White House earlier said Trump was “evaluating the situation” regarding Flynn’s conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., deepening the uncertainty surrounding Flynn’s future in the new administration.

Flynn apologized privately for the controversy to Vice President Mike Pence, according to a White House official. Pence, relying on information from Flynn, publicly vouched that the retired Army lieutenant general did not discuss U.S. sanctions against Russia in calls late last year. Flynn has since told the White House that sanctions may have come up.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump was consulting with Pence about his conversations with the national security adviser. Asked whether the president had been aware that Flynn might discuss sanctions with the Russian envoy, Spicer said, “No, absolutely not.”

Trump, who comments on a steady stream of issues on his Twitter feed, has been conspicuously silent about the matter since The Washington Post reported last week that Flynn had discussed sanctions with the Russian envoy. A U.S. official told The Associated Press that Flynn was in frequent contact with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on the day the Obama administration slapped sanctions on Russia for election-related hacking, as well as at other times during the transition.

Earlier Monday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Trump had “full confidence” in Flynn, though her assertions were not backed up by other senior Trump aides. Spicer would say only that Flynn was continuing to carry out “his daily functions.”

The conflicting signals created confusion at the White House, with reporters crowding around Spicer’s office for hours Monday afternoon seeking information on Flynn’s future.

Background on Flynn’s troubles with liberals here, here, and here.

Lew Rockwell ran an article last night that identified Flynn as a “confrontationalist,” meaning an administration official ready to go after the CIA and other elements in the (((Deep State.))) Flynn was close to so-called Nazi Steve Bannon:

It will be interesting to see how the situation with Michael Flynn, regarding his direct talk with Russia over sanctions, resolves itself. Stephen Miller was sent out to the Sunday talk shows without anything to say regarding Flynn, which is probably a bad omen for the NSA director. Flynn was in the confrontationist camp, if he’s out it further weakens Bannon’s ranks there.

STEVE BANNON AND MICHAEL FLYNN BOARD AF-1 ON FRIDAY.

A month into his term of office, Trump is already showing signs of weakness and vulnerability. He tried, but it appears that the Deep State is too deeply entrenched to be uprooted very easily.

The talk now is that General Petraeus will replace Flynn. Sadly, he’s widely believed to be a (((neocon))) puppet, unlike Flynn.

Expect the U.S. to keep fighting more wars for Israel now. Next stop, Iran, unless Donald Trump frees himself from the influence of those (((neocons))) who hold him in utter contempt.

Resignation letter:

Trump is CRAZY and Will Be Removed: Former Sweden PM

GORAN PERSSON.

A globalist establishment figure who assisted in totally fuxating Sweden via the acceptance of a massive influx of Muslims and Negroids from Africa says Donald Trump is “crazy.”

Obviously.

To the fruitcake former Prime Minister of Sweden trying to keep Muslim terrorists out of your country would be crazy.

By the way, according to Wikipedia, he’s a DRUNK. I fear he’s been hitting the bottle again.

Asia Times

eden’s former Prime Minister Göran Persson, who was leader of the Social Democratic Party from 1996 to 2007, believes Donald Trump will not last long as president of the United States.

In an interview with daily Dagens Nyheter, Persson said that people within the Republican Party and members of Congress soon would realize that a “crazy president” is harmful for the country – as well as their own political positions.

“[Trump] will make America small again. And it will not be allowed. I question weather the policies he now announces actually can be implemented,” he said. “I think he will be removed.”

Persson argues that members of Congress themselves will find it difficult to be re-elected in the mid-term elections in November 2018 as long as Trump is president. Therefore they will drive him out of office and let Vice-President Mike Pence, who Persson calls a “normal republican conservative politician” take over.

“[They] will realize that they will not get re-elected because we have a crazy president. Then they will begin to push him out,” Persson said.

Looking at the latest polls from the US, the Swedish politician might be proven right. Since the moment Donald Trump was elected president, debate over his possible impeachment has been raging, something that has increase after his proposed travel ban for people from seven Muslim-majority countries. Now, some 40% of the country – including some Congressmen – wants to see the president impeached, according to the latest national poll from Public Policy Polling.

“Usually a newly elected president is at the peak of their popularity and enjoying their honeymoon period after taking office right now,” Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling, said in a press release.

“But Donald Trump’s making history once again with a sizable share of voters already wanting to impeach him, and a majority of voters wishing they could have Barack Obama back.”

When Trump was elected president in November, Persson, who today is a consultant for PR firm JKL, said that the “intellectual dimension of politics has disappeared.”

“I don’t think Trump will remain long,” he said.

The polls referred to in the article involve oversampling Democrats, who hate Trump for bursting their Hillary bubble. Persson oversaw the destruction of Sweden during his decade in office. He’s currently heavily involved, according to Wikipedia, in Holocaust education and in “human equality” endeavors.

In short, we have a loon calling the POTUS crazy.
