Trump: The Politics of Distraction

Image result for smoke and mirrors

THE MAIN THING IS TO MAKE SURE THE MAIN THING STAYS THE MAIN THING.

Smoke-n-mirrors (aka Horse-n-Pony, aka Tail-Wagging-The-Dog) tactics are not new to Trump and Co., BUT Trump Inc. has had a plethora of more reasons to utilize them than any 10 other corrupt frauds combined.

Case(s) in point:

  1. Trump’s NAFTA battle with Canada,
  2. Trump’s Border Security battle with Mexico,
  3. Trump’s war on the Media, calling them repeatedly “The Enemy”,
  4. Trump’s war against all 17 of America’s LE & Intel agencies,
  5. Trump’s battles with celebrities, athletes, the entire NFL,
  6. Trump’s smear campaign against Mueller and The FBI,
  7. Trump’s attacks alienating us from out ALLIES,
  8. Trump’s Tariff war on, well, everyone,
  9. and lastly for this list, Trump’s blathering about the Kavanaugh confirmation.

These are important in their proper context, BUT in the context that Trump is using it is nothing but SMOKE-N-MIRRORS to distract us.

“To distract us from what?” Oh, how about from THIS:

Truth squad: Has Iran said it wants to attack Israel?

SOURCE .

[EXCERPTS.]

The statement: “…why is it that we’re talking about Israel having to make a strike against Iran? It’s because Iran has announced they plan to strike Israel.
“They’ve stated, as recently as August just before President Ahmadinejad came to — to the U.N. General Assembly. He said that he wanted to eradicate Israel from the face of the Earth.
“He has said that if he has a nuclear weapon he will use it to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. He will use it against the United States of America.”
The facts:
In 2005, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, during a meeting with protesting students at Iran’s Interior Ministry, quoted a remark from Ayatollah Khomeini, founder of Iran’s Islamic revolution, that Israel “must be wiped out from the map of the world.”
Ahmadinejad then said: “And God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world without the United States and Zionism,” according to a quote published by Iran’s state news outlet, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

 

[NOTE: Some may argue that this is from 7 years ago…my response? Has Iran changed it’s mind or attitude/stance towards Israel and the U.S.? NO.]

Iran and North Korea: Dangerous partners in nuclear proliferation

BY RAYMOND TANTER, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR — 

Iran and North Korea: Dangerous partners in nuclear proliferation

SOURCE .

[EXCERPTS.]

Recall Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United States formed a political commitment with Iran in Geneva on July 14, 2015. The third anniversary of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the Iran deal will be mid-July 2018. (The deal was neither a treaty nor signed.)

But now there is a new wrinkle concerning Iran: Tehran is an apparent partner in proliferation with North Korea. Iran can get around the “sunset provision” of refraining from a nuclear weapons breakout for 10 years after the commitment was made among the parties to the 2015 nuclear deal: Tehran would be able to purchase technology or knowledge related to building a nuclear weapon from Pyongyang and breakout far sooner.

Earlier this year, CIA Director Mike Pompeo told Fox News:

“As North Korea continues to improve its ability to do longer-range missiles and to put nuclear weapons on those missiles, it is very unlikely, if they get that capability, that they wouldn’t share it with lots of folks, and Iran would certainly be someone who would be willing to pay them for it.”

North Korea and Iran have a history of joint missile development dating back to the 1980s, and both countries have been linked to the same Pakistani nuclear physicist. As CNN reports:

“Iran currently possesses more ballistic missiles than any other country in the Middle East but remains dependent on foreign suppliers for missile development and production.”

THAT LAST “BIGLY” LEADS US TO THIS ONE:

North Korea threatens to unleash ‘unimaginable’ nuclear strike on U.S.

| NEW YORK DAILY NEWS |
OCT 19, 2017 | 7:24 PM

[EXCERPTS.]

North Korea issued another threat of nuclear annihilation against the U.S. on Thursday, vowing to unleash an “unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time.”

The warning comes as American military forces conduct ongoing joint naval exercises with South Korea — and as top U.S. officials warned the rogue regime’s nuclear capabilities are close to being perfected.

LASTLY, WE MUST NOT LET TRUMP &Co. DISTRACT US FROM THIS:

SO, YEAH, the nine things listed as distractions at the start are important in their own way and in their own context…BUT they are fodder for a multitude of distractions from the REAL BIG, BAD NEWS:

TRUMP & Co. ARE GUILTY OT TREASON

And that this treason has so compromised and weakened us that we may not be able to withstand the coming global onslaught…not to mention that the global economies are on verge of a COLLAPSE that will make 1929 look like a picnic in paradise.
