Opinion – The Guardian view on Trump’s visit: not welcome Britain – Editorial

Trump’s historic visit to the UK – protestors & high-minded editorials from the UK’s Guardian newspaper should not forget the importance of ‘realpolitik‘, the chance to influence events in a practical way. Although I’m no fan of Mr Trump & Mrs May, they are democratically elected leaders. By calling the UK a ‘vassal state‘, the Guardian is also guilty of peddling fake news. With Germany completely marginalized, the UK has a real opportunity to influence US policy, especially since Boris Johnson‘s departure. ‘Realpolitik’s’ a system of politics or principles based on practical rather than moral or ideological considerations. Surely, this was the objective of Brexit?

There is another thread, we should learn from the relationship of Angela Merkel and Donald Trump. Angela Merkel has been one of Germany’s most effective leaders since WWII, yet she has been isolated by Trump on trade and defense. With Merkel struggling to deliver NATO’s required 2% defense spending in the years ahead, Trump is now demanding 4% – this is totally unacceptable to German voters and her fragile coalition. If we fast-forward to the likelihood of Britain’s first Far-Left government, led by Jeremy Corbyn, it’s worth reflecting on the parallels with Germany under Merkel. As highlighted by the Economist, it’s easy to see Jeremy Corbyn slashing defense spending and drive Britain out of NATO, and possibly making the UK a vassal state of Russia or China. Let’s face it, Jeremy Corbyn does not have Angela Merkel’s leadership skills – he’s a protest politician, the polar opposite of a practitioner of realpolitik. So are we to conclude that Theresa May is right to be pragmatic, leaning towards realpolitik, given her difficult hand?

Opinion – Trump and Iran – The Acid Test? – John Gelmini

Dr Alf brings us a cautionary tale on Iran, in which he reasonably states that Donald Trump should produce evidence of Iran’s attempts to produce nuclear weapons. The reality is more difficult.

Iran through its proxy Hezbollah, the so-called “Party of God”, is waging war all over the Middle East, and is itself a threat to Israel and destabilising for the region.

Iran could develop nuclear weapons but the hard evidence sought by Dr Alf is not there. There is as the Americans say “No smoking gun”.

Mr Netanyahu of Israel is not concerned about the evidence and neither is the American armaments industry.

The original creators of the Project for a New American Century are concerned only with their doctrine of regime change and, of course, the planned wars designed to bring it about.

I can recommend “Pathway to Persia” as a very good read as it describes in great detail the rationale for regime change in Iran.
The PNAC website was more direct, rogue states were to be subjected to regime change.

The countries listed for an application of what Donald Trump calls “fire and fury” are Libya, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, North Korea, Russia and China.

Libya and Iraq have gone, Afghanistan, not on the list, is now occupied with 15 American bases staffed by Executive Outcomes and the new outsourced American Army,the former XE run by Erik Prinz.
Syria is the “stone in America’s shoe” and the roadblock for Israel which wants to topple the Iranian regime to protect itself.
The “Greater Game” is the dominance of the rest of the world by the elimination of all regimes that do not match Western ideals.
It is not about Trump, “evidence” or the Iran deal but rather a blueprint for a 3rd World War to bring about the endgame outlined in General Albert Pike’s letter to Mazzini written in 1871 and on open display in the British Museum until 1974, when it was taken off open display. It was however copied by a Canadian military officer who wrote books about Albert Pike.

Trump, in this connection, is little more than a pawn on a chessboard controlled by others whose desire for evidence is precisely zero.

It is instructive to note that the objectives outlined by Pike for World Wars 1 and 2 in his letter came true in every respect, even though the letter preceded the 1st World War by 43 years and World War 2 by 68 years.

The letter is on the internet for all to see and was even republished by the red-top Daily Star within the last 3 months.
Iran will have to be contained and Donald Trump replaced at some point but for all our sakes it must not be 3rd time lucky for dead Satanist Albert Pike.
