The Big Global Chess Board
« on: March 07, 2018, 07:07:33 AM »
It truly is a big game, and thankfully we have someone who understands that and is playing to win...

All the talk of tarrifs and NAFTA is a grand negotiating ploy like so many other we have seen this past year, not only concerning trade in general, but also bigger global issues including ending the Korean Conflict once and for all.....

President Trump was ramping up the economic pressure on Chinese President Xi Jinping; but more specifically Lighthizer’s action was targeting Beijing’s command and control economy along with the behavior of North Korea.

China -vs- U.S. moves have been taking place in Europe, Russia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Cuba, Venezuela, India, Libya as well as Mexico, Canada and ASEAN nations.  When dragon puts a footprint in Mexico, eagle puts a footprint in Vietnam.   When eagle puts a print in India, dragon puts a print in Pakistan…. this has been going on for well over a year, well beyond the media horizon, and almost no-one’s paying attention.

Funny how no one in the media or in Washington understand this....or even just basic negotiating strategy.  It truly is shocking and explains how bad things are.

The French Enlightenment was a violent revolt against the then existing Euro-centrist order dominated by Monarchy and the Roman Catholic Church.
It spawned progressivism (Marxism) and elevated materialism (aided by the Industrial Revolution) to a predominant cultural/societal value; creating our world of today.
It is highly unlikely we are on the cusp of transformational change yet we shall see.
However don't conflate Trump w/Pericles.

Trump may seem like Pericles when compared to Obama's incompetence and general disinterest in anything good for America.

But I don't think we'll be describing him as such just for trying to do a good job as the President, for America.

It's funny, when thinking of Obama's odd behaviors in the last year, he's probably just as mad that Trump isn't fulfilling what Hitlery was supposed to have done....... praise Obama profusely for another 8 years, give him all kinds of awards and medals and honorary offices / titles, force the UN to give him their presidency.  He'd be there in the WH 24/7 as chairman of this, special advisor to that, writing such and such papers.....

Like the Hillary die-hards, Obama probably still thinks there's got to be a way to get her into the WH.

Can you imagine what the damned govt would look like with Hillary ?  All the assholes would be everywhere - Gore, Biden, Schumer, Pelosi, Podesta, Bubba, the Obamas, Waters, Ellison, Huma, Holder, Lynch, Rice, Jarrett, would be all over the WH and DC.  She'd probably have Whoopi and Rosie and Maddow in there somehow.

Don't be so rough on the old girl. I'm hoping she runs again.

Hell she can not even walk on her own.   :lol:

A fair enough assessment but I sure miss that sunny disposition of Madeline Albright.
