Has Donald Trump overestimated his presidential power? The answer is yes.

Is Steve Bannon, Trump’s main advisor, politically inexperienced? The answer is yes.

We can conclude from the answers to these two questions that Trump is in over his head and will pay a big price.

How large will the price be?

The New York Times reports that US “intelligence agencies…sought to learn whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians on the hacking or other efforts to influence the election.”

Former National Security Agency (NSA) spy John Schindler tweeted on Twitter that a senior intelligence community colleague sent him an email stating that the deep state had declared nuclear war on Trump and that “He will die in jail.”

It is possible that this will be the case.

At the end of World War II, the military/security complex decided that the flow of profits and power from war and threats of war were too great to be relinquished to an era of peace. This complex manipulated a weak and inexperienced President Truman into a gratuitous Cold War with the Soviet Union. The lie was created, and accepted by the gullible American people, that International Communism intended world conquest. This lie was transparent, because Stalin had purged and murdered Leon Trotsky and all communists who believed in world revolution. “Socialism in one country,” declared Stalin.

Academic experts, knowing where their bread was buttered, went along with and contributed to the deceit. By 1961 the overarching power of the military/security complex was apparent to President Eisenhower, a five star general in charge of the US invasion of German occupied Western Europe during the Second World War. The private power that the military/security complex (Eisenhower called it the military-industrial complex) exercised disturbed Ike so much that in his last address to the American people he said we must guard against its subversion of democracy:

“Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.

“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

“We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”

Eisenhower’s warning was to the point. However, it relied on “an alert and knowledgeable citizenry,” which the US does not have. The American population is largely insouciant, and is heading, across the ideological spectrum from left to right, to self-destruction.

The print and TV media, which serve as propagandists for the ruling military/security complex and Wall Street elites, make certain that Americans have nothing but bogus orchestrated information. Every household and person who turns on TV or reads a newspaper is programed to live in a false orchestrated reality that serves the tiny few who comprise the ruling Establishment.

Trump challenged this Establishment without realizing that it is more powerful than a mere President of the United States.

This is what has happened: During Obama’s second term, Russia and its president were demonized by the military/security complex and the neoconservatives using the presstitute media. The demonization has facilitated the ability of the controlled presstitute media, such as the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, and the rest, to associate contact with Russia and articles questioning the orchestrated tensions between the US and Russia with suspicious activity, possibly even treason. Trump and his advisors were too inexperienced to realize that the consequence of Flynn’s dismissal was to validate this orchestrated association of the Trump presidency with Russian intelligence.

Now we have the media whores and the political whores asking the question used to blacken President Nixon and to force his resignation: “What did the President know and when did he know it?” Did Trump know that Gen. Flynn spoke to the Russian ambassador weeks before Trump said he did? Did Flynn do the unspeakable—speak to a Russian—because Trump told him to do so?

The purveyors of fake news—the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the despicable liars are using irresponsible innuendo to entangle President Trump in a web of treason. Here is the New York Times headline: “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence.” What we are witnessing is a campaign by the deep state using their media whores to set up Trump for impeachment.

Those at work overturning the 2016 presidential election are so confident of their success that they publicly declare their preference for coup over democracy. The Zionist neoconservative warmonger Bill Kristol has expressed his preference for a deep state coup over democratically elected President Trump.

The liberal/progressive/left has aligned with the One Percent against the “racist, misogynist, homophobic” working class—the “Trump deplorables”—who elected Trump. Even the uninformed musician, Moby, felt compelled to post ignorant nonsense on Facebook:

“1-the Russian dossier on trump is real. 100% real. he’s being blackmailed by the Russian government, not just for being peed on by Russian hookers, but for much more nefarious things.

2-the trump administration is in collusion with the Russian government, and has been since day one.”

Now that Trump has been tainted with “associations with Russian intelligence,” the idiot Republicans, according to Bloomberg, have “joined calls by Democrats for a deeper look at contacts between President Donald Trump’s team and Russian intelligence agents Wednesday [Feb. 15], indicating a growing sense of political peril within the party as new reports surfaced of extensive contacts between the two.”

Of course, there is no evidence of such contacts, but facts are not part of the campaign to depose Trump.

Trump’s sacking of Flynn is being used as vindication by his opponents of their false charges that the President of the United States is compromised by Russian intelligence. Realizing the mistake, the White House has tried to counter its blunder by saying that Flynn was dismissed because Trump lost confidence in him, not because he did anything illegal or had connections to Russian intelligence. But none of Trump’s opponents are listening. And the CIA keeps feeding fake news to the presstitutes.

From the very beginning I warned that Trump lacked the experience and the knowledge to pick a government that would stand by him and serve his agenda. Trump has now fired the one person on whom he could have counted. The most obvious conclusion is that Trump is dead meat.

The effort of the American people to bring government back under their control via Trump has been defeated by the deep state.

Chris Hedges argument that revolution is the only way that Americans can reclaim their country continues to gain credibility.

The words that doomed Trump when he declared war before he had his army assembled:

“There is nothing the political establishment will not do, and no lie they will not tell, to hold on to their prestige and power at your expense. The Washington establishment, and the financial and media corporations that fund it, exists for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not We The People reclaim control over our government. The political establishment that is trying everything to stop us, is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration, and economic and foreign policies that have bled this country dry.

“The political establishment has brought about the destruction of our factories and our jobs, as they flee to Mexico, China and other countries throughout the world. It’s a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth, and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.”

  • blah, blah, blah…….what a load of horseshit! Trump had the wrong agenda from the beginning and ran nothing but a smear campaign. That is why he lost the cause. He doesn’t understand economics, he values a big military and even went so far as to say he wants more nukes, he wants a wall to keep illegals out eventhough the real issue is that there is a demand for them because of too many regulations and taxes, he thinks trade deals are the problem and not too many taxes and regulations(although I don’t like the fact they are secret and complex), blames drug lords instead of big government, thinks terrorists are real rather than staged by banks and royal families, never said a thing about 9-11 and bush…only blames the clintons, is now threatening Russia and putin eventhough he said we should be friends with them, believes in a two state solution for Israel/Palestine, threatens iran eventhough they did nothing wrong.

    Communist out….Facist in!

  • can i see the emails of hillary clinton and john kerry’s relationship with russia before their “idea” blew up in their faces.

  • blah blah blah….but all true!

  • I am pretty much there, with you, Dr. Roberts. I hope we are wrong….I do not want to give Soros what he’s aiming for…civil unrest. If Trump is to survive, he needs to arrest a top journalist, and a few big names in each political and banking sectors, to put the rest, on edge. That to me, is his only shot at trying to turn this ship around.

  • What a bunch of f’ing morons. It’s over, less than 4 weeks into his presidency. I bet your grandparents were the first to surrender to the Germans. What a bunch of defeatists limp wristed a’holes. Yeah, we’re in a war, a war we are going to win, no thanks to pansies like you.

  • General Flynn was a key part of the current government and it’s small chance of reforming the Zionist owned
    military police state that makes up current America. The six corporate news networks are all owned by this group and need to be subdued. Without Flynn and a real posse to round up the traitors like McCain, Graham, Kissinger, Obama, and of course the head of the snake the Rothchilds there is little hope. Trump while meaning well under-estimated the depth
    of the evil which compromises the Deep State known as the USA. The real government was not the one shown on
    TV with the racist homosexual Obama leading the charge. The real government is run by the Rothchild’s Fed, the Israelis, their ownership in most multi-national corporations and of course their ownership of the traitor media news networks.
    These are the individuals and groups responsible for all of the wars, famine, poverty, cancer, weather modification,
    GMO’s, etc.. They are not going silently into the night and will spread death, lies, and tyranny along the way to recouping
    power via the media, assassinations “political and actual”, and will use the incredibly stupid US population as their useful
    idiots to achieve their aims. Americans unknowingly will dig their own graves by believing the Zionist owned media which has only one goal: World domination with Russia the Grand Prize and America on her knees.

  • Boo

    A lot of assumption’s here Doc. Is Flynn really gone? You know deep cover works two ways. Just one more move on the chess board. The game has a variety of piece’s to play for a reason. I’ve haven’t heard anyone call check mate yet?
