Donald Trump won back some supporters with his bold diplomatic moves with Russia yesterday. Seeking peace is never a popular move with those who run our civilization, as could be seen by the hysterical opposition he garnered, with even more irrational hatred than usual, from every pillar of the establishment.
The code words were everywhere on social media; Trump was consistently called a "traitor," and "Putin's bitch." Alleged "journalists" dropped their facade further than they ever had; former CIA intern Anderson Cooper declared, "You've just seen the most disgraceful performance by a U.S. president." #TreasonSummit was all the rage on twitter.
My colleagues in the JFK assassination research community were mostly apoplectic over the summit. Laughably, they insisted it was "treason" for Trump to seemingly side with Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence agencies. Yes, these are the same researchers who are quite aware of just how extensively these same intelligence agencies have covered up the truth about the assassination for decades. They are relegated to cheering on the likes of war lover extraordinaire John McCainiac and former President George W. Bush, who both of course opposed the summit.
McCainiac, still clinging to life and still possessing the strength to issue more pro-war soundbites, used another popular keyword, "disgraceful," calling it "one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory." Former CIA director John Brennan claimed it was "nothing short of treasonous." Neocon veteran Newt Gingrich said it was "the most serious mistake of his presidency."
Deluded Republican Never Trump Jeff Flake declared, "I never thought I would see the day when our American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression." Exactly what "aggression" he was talking about wasn't specified. Flake, like all neocons, supports America's quite real, continuous aggression all over the globe. Ayn Rand disciple Paul Ryan lectured Trump that "the president must appreciate that Russia is not our ally." Another Republican, Senator Bob Corker, ominously stated that this was not "a good moment for our country." Mitt Romney joined the chorus of those calling the summit "disgraceful."
Exactly what are all these critics- from all across the phony "left" and "right" spectrum, so upset about? Was Trump scheming to turn over the reigns of government to Putin? Was he advocating Russian as the new American language? Was he promising massive amounts of foreign aid to Russia?
I watched the Trump-Putin press conference. Aside from Trump's predictable lapses into mindless, juvenile boasting and off-the-cuff embarrassing articulation, both of them sounded reasonable and refreshingly sane. If this had been Obama or Clinton on the stage, with any of China's totalitarian rulers, the same kept press and deluded celebrities would have been just as over-the-top in their effusive praise.
What critics are seemingly saying here is that Russia is our "enemy," as the likes of certifiably insane Keith Olbermann screamed on air last year. Another celebrity who is fortunate to be outside a padded room, comedian Chelsea Handler, described with her typical classiness, how Trump was "blowing his boyfriend." This was a sub- theme in all the criticism; Trump had been taken to the cleaners by Putin, and was a "traitor" for simply talking to him. The inevitable comparisons to Hitler were there; while Trump has been compared to Hitler himself, this time it was Putin as the ultimate bogeyman, and Trump in the role of hapless "appeaser" Neville Chamberlain.
Young actor Chris Evans, who plays Captain America among other things, figuratively screamed on twitter, "This moron, puppet, coward sided with Putin over our own intelligence agencies!" Yes, Chris, the same perpetually corrupt agencies that now have script approval over anything that comes out of Hollywood. Evans, like many, also questioned, "Where are you GOP?" He was seemingly unaware that every high profile member of the GOP blasted Trump, as they have whenever he's taken a step towards sanity or reform.
