Apparently, Trump has changed his mind now that he is President Trump. In this national propaganda address he stated; “Ultimately, it is up to the people of Afghanistan to take ownership of their future, to govern their society, and to achieve an everlasting peace. We are a partner and a friend, but we will not dictate to the Afghan people how to live or how to govern their own complex society. We are not nation building again. We are killing terrorists.”
This is what Ron Paul had to say in a letter address to friends of the Ron Paul institute:
“Like me, many of you watched President Trump’s train wreck of a speech on Afghanistan earlier tonight. It’s nearly midnight and I am still reeling.
I guess it was too much to ask to hear him admit the obvious and draw the obvious conclusions: After 16 years – the longest war in US history – no one even remembers what we are fighting for in Afghanistan. The war is over. Not another American (or innocent Afghan) life for one of the most convoluted and idiotic wars in history!
Trump of 2012 and 2013 said just that. Candidate Trump said just that. Then tonight he told us that once you sit in the chair in the Oval Office, you see things differently. What does that mean? Once elected you betray your promises so as to please the deep state?”
Which political commentator warned that Trump would be no different from O’Bomber or Bush?
Yes, I warned about it and received torrents of hate for it.
Many Trumpites… Trumpidians? Trumptards? Ya, Trumptards sounds right… Many Trumptards still defend him, saying he is just at the mercy of the “deep state.”
Well, if he is, then so was O’Bomber… And so was Bush… And every other US president in history. So, how is Trump any better then?
The fact of the matter is that Trump was yet another puppet. A Jesuit trained, self-admitted globalist elite billionaire.
The only way things can be fixed in the US is a complete abolishment of the federal government. For this reason, this week, I interviewed Adam Kokesh who is running for non-President in 2020 with the sole goal to shut down the federal government.
Now that is something I can get behind.
