Donald Trump’s so-called Deal of the Century unveiled this past Tuesday is actually a deal with the devil. This so-called Middle East Peace Plan would more accurately be called the “Permanent Palestinian Enslavement Act”—otherwise known as the “Save Benjamin Netanyahu’s Derriere Act.”
On the very day that Netanyahu was formally indicted on corruption charges by the Israeli Knesset, Donald Trump rolls out his “Deal of the Century” Middle East peace plan. As with Trump’s assassination of General Soleimani, this is nothing but a ploy to try and save Trump’s partner in crime and fellow Zionist, Benjamin Netanyahu—and to further endear himself to the much beguiled Christian Zionists within America’s evangelical voting bloc.
The people who live under the yoke of Israeli oppression in Palestine, however, know exactly what this is all about. And they rightly reject it.
Trump revealed his plan on Tuesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu standing by his side at the White House. [The Palestinians were conveniently left out of the negotiations.]
Trump led his statement by introducing the Israeli side of the plan, announcing that Jerusalem will remain the “undivided capital” of Israel, adding that this has “already been done”.
He also said he hoped to implement the plan “immediately”.
Netanyahu, speaking after Trump, thanked the US president for a “historic day” and said the plan would see Israeli law implemented in the occupied West Bank’s Jordan Valley as a means to ensuring the security of Israel.
Fakhry Abu Diab, a Palestinian activist in Silwan neighbourhood in East Jerusalem, told Al Jazeera: “It is obvious that Trump is repeating history by establishing new Balfour Declaration.
“He [Trump] is giving away what he does not own, to people who have no right to it,” said Abu Diab.
Following Britain’s pledge to establish “a national home for the Jewish people,” the Balfour Declaration was issued on November 2, 1917. It turned the Zionist aim of establishing a Jewish state in Palestine into a reality.
“This deal only secures Israeli interests while violating international law and some of the main pillars of a Palestinian state – Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley.
“After decades of sacrificing our lives for this cause, we want our freedom and a Palestinian state along the 1967 border, not some economic gains.
“We completely reject this plan and will continue to fight it,” he added. (Source)
The Palestinians are absolutely right: This is merely another Balfour Declaration—which was nothing more than a conspiracy orchestrated by 19th and 20th century Zionists to steal land belonging to the indigenous Arab people in a demonic attempt to overturn God’s divine judgment on the city of Jerusalem and the Jewish temple in 70 AD—a judgment that had been prophesied by Old Testament prophets, John the Baptist, the Lord Jesus Christ and His apostles. In actuality, Zionism is nothing more than a 2,000-year blood feud with God for destroying their holy city and their holy temple.
Trump’s “two-state solution” for the Palestinians is analogous to the way Nazi Germany forced Jews into the Warsaw ghettos. “Be good little slaves and accept our total domination over you, eat your bread and water and live in squalid conditions, and maybe we won’t kill you.” THAT is Trump’s “two-state solution,” his “Deal of the Century.”
Without a doubt, Gaza is the Auschwitz of our time.
Palestinians shouted back, “Jerusalem is not for sale!”
Trump released a “conceptual map” of his two-state solution on Twitter after his speech, showing a much-reduced West Bank honeycombed with Israeli settlements. While these ethnically-segregated outposts are illegal under international law, the peace plan recognizes them as permanent – though imposes a four-year freeze on construction of further settlements. A tunnel connects the West Bank and Gaza, and two chunks of desert land in Israel’s southwest are added to Palestine, connected by a tiny strip of land to Gaza.
The deal situates the proposed capital of the Palestinian state in East Jerusalem outside an existing security barrier that divides Arab neighborhoods from the rest of Jerusalem – but does not include the Old City, currently home to many of the city’s Palestinian residents.
While Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu was standing beside Trump as he detailed the proposed plan, no Palestinian representative was present at the speech. Abbas’ Palestinian Authority preemptively scorned the deal, having cut off communications with Washington since the US moved its embassy to Jerusalem – an outcome Trump appears to have expected, telling reporters the day before unveiling the deal that the Palestinians “probably won’t want it initially.” However, he hinted, economic pressure would eventually bring them round.

Like most unprincipled money-hungry Americans—including “Prosperity Gospel” fakers like Paula White and Kenneth Copeland—Donald Trump suffers from the delusion (moral sickness) that everyone is like him and will sell their soul for a dollar. Trump and his ilk have absolutely no idea how to relate to people who possess real convictions and principles and cannot be bought or bullied. You know, people like our Early Church fathers and America’s Founding Fathers.
Tragically, evangelical Christians are following the Pied Pipers of Zionism into the abyss.
I’ll say it straight out: Anyone who believes that the modern State of Israel fulfills Bible prophecy or that the Zionists in Israel are “God’s Chosen People” or that God’s promise in Genesis 12:3 to bless those who bless Abram applies to modern Israel is following Satan’s lie.
The modern State of Israel is a complete counterfeit; the Ashkenazi Jews inhabiting Palestine are only “chosen” if they—like every other person on the planet, Jew or Gentile—have been “chosen in Christ” (Ephesians 1:4). And the Rothschild Zionists (who are the planners, promoters and financial pockets of a globalist New World Order, complete with its efforts to strip free men of their right to keep and bear arms, implement universal abortion-on-demand, fill our culture with pornography and sexual deviancy and destroy America’s Christian heritage) are nothing more than the spiritual descendants of the Pharisees, chief priests and scribes who hated and crucified the Son of God for their own personal pleasure and profit. (Matthew 27:18, 20; Mark 11:17, 18; 15:11; Luke 16:14; 23:21; John 11:48; 19:6, 15; Acts 2:22, 23)
Any Christian or “patriot” who does not understand that the epicenter of the New World Order has coalesced in Tel Aviv (and in London and Washington, D.C., of course) doesn’t have a clue about the New World Order or the “Deep State.”
The worst tyrants and oppressors in the Middle East are in Tel Aviv and Beersheba. The criminality, killings, torture, pillage and plunder committed by the Israelis dwarfs the violence and bloodshed committed by Muslim peoples—Shiites or Sunnis. Even the murderous Wahhabi sect of Muslims can’t compare to the volume of Israeli atrocities.
Since becoming a state in 1948, the Israeli military has killed over 5 million Palestinians. Why is that not labeled a holocaust? And since Israel became a state, over 20 million people have been killed from U.S. led wars, military coups and intelligence ops, mostly on behalf of Israel. Why is that not labeled a holocaust?
If America’s evangelicals want to support “God’s people” in Palestine, they will support the Palestinian Christians—along with Arab Christians throughout the region. Yes, many of the Palestinians being victimized by Israel’s apartheid state are our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Yet America’s evangelical Christians are cheering Trump’s deal with the devil of enabling Netanyahu and his brood of bloodthirsty butchers to expand Israel’s continuing criminal conduct of stealing people’s land, bulldozing people’s homes, imprisoning people’s families, shooting children in the head for sport, walling in, starving and denying water and electricity to entire communities and wreaking havoc and violence upon the entire Middle East. Why? Because evangelicals have fallen victim to the damnable notes promoting Israel-based prophetic futurism in the Zionist-created Scofield Reference Bible.
After the State of Israel was created in 1948, Scofield’s notes were seen as divinely inspired. And Israel’s land grab of the Jordanian West Bank, the Syrian Golan Heights and the Egyptian Sinai in 1967 sealed the deal for evangelicals.
Christians didn’t even notice that Israel tried to sink the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967, with unmarked French Mirage jets to make it appear the ship was attacked by Egypt in an attempt to bring the United States into the war. Christians didn’t even notice that 34 American sailors and Marines were killed in that attack and 174 were wounded. And to this day, they totally ignore the brave survivors of that attack who risk everything to try and tell the American people what really happened on that terrible day.
Combined with the creation of the Israeli state in 1948, the Six Day War in 1967 was interpreted by prophecy preachers nationwide as a sign from Heaven. Israel’s victory was called a “miracle.” Of course, the REAL miracle during the Israeli act of aggression and land confiscation of 1967 was the divine intervention that kept the USS Liberty afloat on June 8. But that didn’t fit in with the Scofield prophecy preachers’ theology, so that miracle was never mentioned.
Soon “Prophetic Dispensationalism,” as it came to be called, saturated America’s Christian colleges, seminaries and Christian book stores. The “Church Growth” movement of the 1970s, 80s and 90s quickly enveloped America’s evangelicals. Of course, most of the “Church Growth” movement had a heavy emphasis on Israel, prophecy and the “imminent” return of Christ.
In the minds of evangelical futurists today, Donald Trump is a new King Cyrus for a Greater Israel.
There is no reasoning with these prophecy zealots. There is no use quoting the Declaration of Independence, Constitution or Bill of Rights. There is no such thing as Natural Law, International Law or the Law of Nations with them. America’s Founding Fathers and founding documents are completely irrelevant, as are honesty, integrity, morality and humility. None of it matters. Scofield’s prophecies have been fulfilled in Donald Trump.
Old Testament Israel has been reborn; a third Jewish temple MUST be rebuilt; the Mosaic feasts, festivals, new moons, rites, ordinances, commandments, sacrifices and sabbaths MUST be reinstituted. Donald Trump is “The Chosen One.” He is “God’s Anointed.” Donald Trump, Benjamin Netanyahu and Nikki Haley are the new Holy Trinity. And Robert Jeffress, Jerry Falwell Jr., John Hagee, Kenneth Copeland, Paula White and Franklin Graham—along with Trump’s myriad “spiritual advisors”—are the new Kingdom Prophets who sit at the King’s table.
Assassinating foreign heads of state, enabling Federal Reserve bankers to crush foreign currencies and economies that reject their financial monopoly, stealing oil fields from recalcitrant but powerless countries, pillaging and plundering America’s economic future in order to finance the never-ending Zionist “war on terror,” bullying every nation on earth that hesitates to accept the American/Israeli global hegemony, risking global nuclear war: In the minds of evangelical rapturists, it’s all necessary to fulfill Scofield’s prophecies.
Yep! Donald Trump’s “Deal of the Century” is nothing more than an old-fashioned deal with the devil. Then again, many evangelical Christians and former presidents have made that same deal over the past 70+ years.
P.S. This is the message you won’t hear in the vast majority of America’s evangelical churches. This message will explain the Zionist blood feud against God and why most Christians have completely misinterpreted the truth of God’s Word by embracing Israel-based prophetic futurism. You will probably never hear another message like it. Find it here.

I realize that the vast majority of Christian conservatives will choose to totally ignore this column (just as they do most of my columns), but the stark reality is that under so-called Christian conservative presidents G.W. Bush and Donald J. Trump, America’s wars are way up, while church attendance is way down. And, yes, I absolutely believe there is a direct link between these two trends.
That wars increased exponentially under Bush is not debatable. The ramifications of Bush’s illegal and immoral military invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan are still strongly reverberating around the world to this very day. Much of the ongoing “war on terror” in the Middle East is a direct result of the Bush/Cheney military adventurism (putting it mildly) almost two decades ago. And Trump has escalated America’s missile wars to unprecedented levels.
Trump has dropped more bombs and missiles on Middle Eastern countries in a comparable period of time than any modern U.S. President. Presidents Bush, Obama and now  Trump have dropped nearly 200,000 bombs and missiles on Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Trump’s rate of bombing eclipses both Bush and Obama; and Trump is on a pace to drop over 100,000 [180,000 to be precise] bombs and missiles on Middle Eastern countries during his first term of office—which would equal the number of bombs and missiles dropped by Obama during his entire eight-year presidency.
The United States Government, under the Trump administration, reportedly drops a bomb every 12 minutes, which means that 121 bombs are dropped in a day, and 44,096 bombs per year. The Pentagon’s data show that during George W. Bush’s eight years he averaged 24 bombs dropped per day, that is, 8,750 per year. Over the course of Obama’s time in office, his military dropped 34 bombs per day, 12,500 per year. This shows that even though American presidents are all war criminals, Trump is the most vicious of them all.
Yes, Trump is dropping almost FOUR TIMES MORE BOMBS than Barack Obama and over FIVE TIMES MORE BOMBS than G.W. Bush—which included military invasions of two countries.
We also know that Trump expanded America’s wars in Afghanistan and Syria (and, no, he is NOT bringing U.S. troops home from Syria) and is ramping up America’s war machine against Venezuela, Iran, China and Russia. And this does not even take into account the way Trump has given Benjamin Netanyahu’s raunchy racist regime the green light to expand its wars against the Palestinians, Lebanon, Syria and Iran or the U.S./Israeli proxy war (with Saudi Arabia taking the lead) in Yemen.
In the age of Donald Trump, wasn’t that [the Battle of Mogadishu—Black Hawk Down] a million presidencies ago? Honestly, can you even tell me anymore what in the world it was all about? I couldn’t have, not without looking it up again. A warlord, starvation, U.S. intervention, 18 dead American soldiers (and hundreds of dead Somalis, but that hardly mattered) in a country that was shattering. President Clinton did, however, pull out those troops and end the disastrous mission — and that was that, right? I mean, lessons learned. Somalia? Africa? What in the world did it all have to do with us? So Washington washed its hands of the whole thing.
And now, on a planet of outrageous tweets and murderously angry white men, you probably didn’t even notice, but more than two years into the era of Donald Trump, a quarter-century after that incident, American airstrikes in… yep, Somalia, are precipitously on the rise.
Last year’s 47 strikes, aimed at the leaders and fighters of al-Shabaab, an Islamist terror outfit, more than tripled the ones carried out by the Obama administration in 2016 (themselves a modest increase from previous years). And in 2019, they’re already on pace to double again, while Somali civilians — not that anyone (other than Somali civilians) notices or cares — are dying in significant and rising numbers.
And with 500 troops back on the ground there and Pentagon estimates that they will remain for at least another seven years, the U.S. military is increasingly Somalia-bound, Congress hasn’t uttered a peep on the subject, and few in this country are paying the slightest attention.
So consider this a simple fact of the never-ending Global War on Terror (as it was once called): the U.S. military just can’t get enough of Somalia. And if that isn’t off the charts, what is? Maybe it’s even worth a future book (with a very small print run) called not Black Hawk Down II but U.S. Down Forever and a Day.
And now that I’ve started on the subject (if you still happen to be reading), when it comes to the U.S. military, it’s not faintly just Somalia. It’s all of Africa.
After all, this country’s military uniquely has a continent-wide Africa Command (aka AFRICOM), founded in 2007. As Nick Turse has often written for TomDispatch, that command now has its troops, thousands of them, its planes, and other equipment spread across the continent, north to south, east to west — air bases, drone bases, garrisons, outposts, staging areas, you name it. Meanwhile, AFRICOM’s outgoing commanding general, Thomas Waldhauser, only recently toldCongress why it’s bound to be a forever outfit — because, shades of the Cold War, the Ruskies are coming! (“Russia is also a growing challenge and has taken a more militaristic approach in Africa.”)
And honestly, 600-odd words in, this wasn’t meant to be a piece about either Somalia or Africa. It was meant to be about those U.S. wars being off the charts, about how the Pentagon now feeds eternally at the terror trough, al-Shabaab being only a tiny part of the slop it regularly digests.
And, while America’s wars are way up, according to Gallup, church attendance in America is way down:
As Christian and Jewish Americans prepare to celebrate Easter and Passover, respectively, Gallup finds the percentage of Americans who report belonging to a church, synagogue or mosque at an all-time low, averaging 50% in 2018.
U.S. church membership was 70% or higher from 1937 through 1976, falling modestly to an average of 68% in the 1970s through the 1990s. The past 20 years have seen an acceleration in the drop-off, with a 20-percentage-point decline since 1999 and more than half of that change occurring since the start of the current decade.
Most interesting is this Gallup observation:
Although the United States is one of the more religious countries, particularly among Western nations, it is far less religious than it used to be. Barely three-quarters of Americans now identify with a religion and only about half claim membership in a church, synagogue or mosque.
The rate of U.S. church membership has declined sharply in the past two decades after being relatively stable in the six decades before that. A sharp increase in the proportion of the population with no religious affiliation, a decline in church membership among those who do have a religious preference, and low levels of church membership among millennials are all contributing to the accelerating trend.
Obviously, America’s Jewish and Muslim populations pale compared to its Christian population. The vast decline of attendance to religious services, therefore, primarily means church attendance. Notice, also, that this steep decline commenced at the beginning of this century (2000)—when G.W. Bush became President of the United States.
I tried to warn readers—and listeners to my nationwide radio talk show—that due to his insatiable war fever, G.W. Bush was going to forever warp the perception in people’s minds of Christianity. And, sadly, I was absolutely right. After eight years of the warmongering G.W. Bush in the White House, millions of Americans came to associate Christianity with wars of aggression. As a result, the exodus out of America’s churches began in earnest.
Enter Donald Trump.
As noted above, Trump has expanded Bush’s war fever exponentially. But Trump has done more than that: He has aggressively put the United States smack dab in the middle of Israel’s wars. It could even be argued that Donald Trump has turned the U.S. military into a proxy army for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
Don’t get me wrong: I am very cognizant of the fact that G.W. Bush’s “war on terror” was nothing more than a proxy war for Israel. But the Israeli connection was covert and completely covered up. Not anymore. Donald Trump is unabashedly and explicitly partnering the mission of the U.S. military with that of the IDF. No wonder Benjamin Netanyahu promises to name a community in the Israel-seized, Israel-occupied Golan Heights after Donald Trump. (Trumplinka would fit Netanyahu’s concentration-style occupation nicely.)
So, not only are millions of Americans now associating Christianity with G.W. Bush’s wars of aggression, they are associating Christianity with Donald Trump’s wars of aggression for the racist apartheid State of Israel. The result: the steepest decline in church attendance and church affiliation in U.S. history.
The longer evangelical Christians continue to support Donald Trump’s radical pro-Israel, pro-war agenda, the deeper America will plunge into an anti-Christian country.
The good news is that all over America, people are waking up to the Israel deception. Support for the erroneous doctrine of dispensational eschatology is in a giant free fall; the myth of Zionist Israel being a resurrected Old Testament Israel is being repeatedly exposed; the attempts by Israel’s toadies to characterize people whose eyes are open to the truth of Zionism as being “anti-Semitic” is losing more and more credibility by the day; and more and more people are becoming aware of the utter wickedness of the Zionist government in Israel. Plus, more and more people are beginning to understand the plight of the persecuted people (including Christian people) in the Israeli-occupied territories of Palestine.
Ron, maybe your shipmates on the USS LIBERTY didn’t die in vain after all.
From an historical perspective, overextended wars are the downfall of any empire; from a financial perspective, warfarism is the precursor to an economically depressed middle class; and from a Scriptural/spiritual perspective, God cannot and will not bless a warmongering nation.
Let’s be clear: God is not building a “Greater Israel.” God is not building a third Jewish temple. God is not speaking through phony prophets who are attributing some sort of divine calling to Trump’s pro-Israel warmongering. God is not blessing America because we are blessing Zionist Israel. Just the opposite: The more America aligns itself with Israel’s belligerence, bullying and bombing of innocent people, the more God will deliver us over to becoming an antichrist country. After all, one cannot idolize and partner with antichrists without becoming one himself.
After Trump finishes this term in office, two-thirds of this young century will have seen a “Christian” warmonger in the White House. It is no coincidence that during this same period of time, wars are way up and church attendance is way down.
P.S. I urge readers to watch this short eight-minute video clip of my Palm Sunday message. In this clip, I illustrate the blasphemy of Jewish Zionists by playing a video clip from an interview with conservative darling Ben Shapiro. I also make the observation that the foundation of the faith and fellowship of Christian Zionists is NOT Jesus Christ, but Israel. Please watch this brief video and share it with your friends.

After many, many years in the “patriot” movement, it is y studied opinion that most of the so-called patriots who claim to “get it” really don’t. Ditto for most of the “patriot” radio talk show hosts, columnists and Internet bloggers. The reality is that there are very few people who seem to truly understand the big picture and who possess the sagacity to discern the real war that is raging around us—which helps to explain, of course, why nothing much ever changes.
What follows are three of the tell-tale signs that people truly do NOT get it.
1. They believe that the Deep State is mostly confined to the Democrat Party and people such as George Soros.
In essence, these folks are totally immersed in the Republican-Democrat, left-right, conservative-liberal false paradigm. Soros has helped finance both Democrats and Republicans (including Donald Trump). And while so-called conservative Republicans use George Soros as a poster child of the enemy, they RUN to Las Vegas to meet with Sheldon Adelson in hopes of procuring his financial and political blessings. And, frankly, between the two, Adelson is a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties than Soros. Yet, “conservatives” love Adelson and despise Soros.
These people truly do NOT get it.
By definition, the Deep State is not conspicuous. It is hidden deeply out of sight where it can work unobserved and unfettered. Furthermore, the Deep State moves comfortably and seamlessly among both the Democrat and Republican parties. The Deep State will use conservatives as effectively as liberals and vice versa. It uses Democrats to attack our 2nd Amendment liberties and Republicans to attack our 4th Amendment liberties. No matter which party is in control of the Congress or the White House, the Deep State agenda presses on almost unimpeded—and, yes, that includes having Donald Trump in the White House.
People such as George Soros are merely headliners to give “patriots” a visible target to shoot at, while the real power brokers infiltrate many of the very organizations that are openly opposing people such as Soros.
Understand this: All of the bitterness and political hate speech going on between liberals and conservatives, between Democrats and Republicans, is nothing but public theater. Some of the rancor and bitterness is indeed genuine, of course, while some of it is as phony as a three dollar bill. But ALL of it only serves to provide cover for the real power brokers who are manipulating the left and the right for their own purposes.
Deep State moguls couldn’t care less about all of the arguing and bickering going on between the two parties, except as it provides them with an effective distraction from the things they really care about, knowing that at the end of the day, both parties will continue to further their agenda.
People who are caught up in the phony left-right paradigm truly do NOT get it.
2. They believe that Islamists are our enemies and Zionists are our friends.
On this subject, the vast majority of evangelical Christians are proving themselves to be absolute dupes. Think this through:
On the one hand, “Christians” and “conservatives” spend countless hours, expend limitless energy and spend millions of dollars demonizing Muslims. The threat of Muslims justifies the “War on Terror.” The threat of Muslims justifies a burgeoning Police State. The threat of Muslims is promoted in fundraising letters, periodicals, books, radio broadcasts, TV shows, etc., by practically every “conservative” political and religious organization in the country.
Part of Donald Trump’s popularity among “conservatives” and “Christians” is the manner in which he invokes fear of and hatred toward Muslims. Ditto for the vast majority of Christian pastors and television evangelists. They all promote the mass killing of Muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Lebanon, Somalia, Pakistan, etc.
But on the other hand, they all happily endorse sending billions of dollars in arms and munitions to the Muslims in Saudi Arabia. Muslims in Iran are said to be our enemies, but Muslims in Saudi Arabia are our “allies.” REALLY? What kind of hallucinogenic are they ingesting?
The truth is, the most violent, bloodthirsty people in the Muslim world today are the Wahhabi Muslims in Saudi Arabia. Wahhabis are the ones who were used to form terror groups such as ISIS, al-Nusra, etc. Wahhabis are the ones who are murdering thousands of innocent men, women and children in Yemen and throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa. Wahhabis are the ones who round up and torture, maim, dismember, imprison and murder Christians, Jews AND non-Wahhabi Muslims within Saudi Arabia. If you believe the official story of 9/11, it was Wahhabi Muslims from Saudi Arabia that flew those jets into the Twin Towers.
Yet, America sends billions of dollars in weapons to the Wahhabi Muslims in Saudi Arabia—and “conservatives” and “Christians” are all for it. A few days ago, TV evangelist Pat Robertson used his vast Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) to defend America’s friendship and partnership with the Wahhabi Muslims in Saudi Arabia.
Why must Americans hate and bomb and kill Shia Muslims in Iran and Syria, while at the same time, we must befriend, partner with, and finance Wahhabi Muslims in Saudi Arabia—and even look the other way as they inflict the cruelest and most evil acts of barbarity and bloodshed?
In typical bloodthirsty fashion, Wahhabi Muslims murdered a permanent U.S. resident, Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi (who was openly critical of the Saudi regime), and what did President Trump do? He boldly proclaimed Wahhabi Muslim Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s denial of any culpability in Khashoggi’s murder to be “credible.” Trump further said he has no plans to interfere with the $110 billion arms deal with Salman.
It is a total coincidence, of course, that at the very moment Trump was providing cover for the Wahhabi government of Saudi Arabia, Prince Salman was transferring over $100 million to Trump’s government in the United States. I’m sure it is also a coincidence that Donald Trump owes his financial survival to the Wahhabi Muslims in Saudi Arabia who bailed Trump out of at least two financial bankruptcies—as did the Zionists in Israel.
As an aside, Donald Trump seems to have a penchant to cover up or even defend violence. During a recent Montana rally, Trump praised Republican Congressman Greg Gianforte, saying “he’s my guy.”
What made Gianforte Trump’s guy? He physically attacked London Guardian newspaper reporter Ben Jacobs and body-slammed him to the floor in a violent, unprovoked attack. So much for Trump and Gianforte’s devotion to the First Amendment and the unalienable right to life. Gianforte is a large man who could have very easily broken the reporter’s back or neck in the unprovoked attack—an attack that he initially denied until it was discovered that the whole thing was captured on audio.(Listen to the audio and hear how the reporter was calmly asking Gianforte a question and how Gianforte exploded into a rage and body slammed the reporter without warning.) Fortunately, the reporter’s injuries were not severe. The congressman then pleaded guilty to the assault and was given a slap on the wrist.
I submit that what Saudi Prince Salman did to U.S. resident journalist Khashoggi (attack and kill him) and what Congressman Greg Gianforte did to London Guardian newspaper reporter Ben Jacobs (attack and body slam him) was only a difference of degree. Both journalists were attacked (because a member of the power elite didn’t like what they were reporting): One was injured; the other was killed. But it was the same evil, hate-filled heart that committed both crimes. And Donald Trump fully supports both of these vicious attackers. (Oh! Did I mention that Gianforte is very rich? He is.) But I digress.
Where is the fear mongering and hate mongering toward the Wahhabi Muslims of Saudi Arabia from America’s “conservatives” and “Christians?”
Not only do “conservatives” and “Christians” make (non-Wahhabi) Muslims their perpetual scapegoats; they totally and thoroughly embrace Jewish Zionists as their best friends. Never mind that Zionists have done more to destroy America’s historic Christian culture than any group of people on the planet; never mind that Zionists have taken control of the mainstream media (that “conservatives” and “Christians” love to hate); never mind that Zionist money and influence have polluted America’s entertainment industries and political institutions; never mind that the Zionist State of Israel is a bloodthirsty apartheid state; never mind that Zionist Israel is (along with Wahhabi Muslim Saudi Arabia) the biggest sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East. Never mind that Christians have been duped and deceived by C.I. Scofield’s Israel-based prophecy propaganda; never mind that under Christ’s New Covenant, the Zionists of Israel are no more “God’s chosen people” than the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia. Never mind any of that. To “conservatives” and “Christians” everywhere, Israel is our “friend.”
I’m telling you: People who want to demonize the Muslim states (except Saudi Arabia, of course) and idolize the State of Israel do NOT get it—not in any form or fashion.
I strongly encourage readers to get my 15-message, 7-DVD series The Israel Package. For many years I, too, was caught up in the Israel deception—until I began to honestly and objectively study the issue for myself. These 15 messages contain the truth about the State of Israel. If God could open my eyes to the truth about Israel, He can open the eyes of others—IF they have a truly objective, honest heart and mind, of course. This package of 15 messages and 7 DVDs is discounted significantly in order to help people purchase it. I hope you will order The Israel Package.
3. They believe that Donald Trump is a superhero who is fighting the Deep State.
These people truly do NOT get it.
Again, the Deep State is apolitical. Left and right, conservative and liberal mean nothing to the Deep State. Until the American people wake up to that fact—and wake up to the fact that the primary focus and agenda of the Deep State is PERPETUAL WAR—they will always be in the dark about the Deep State.
For the Deep State, the name of the game is WAR. War advances the goals and enriches the pockets of Deep State moguls more than anything else in the world. “Nation-building,” “regime-change,” “fighting terror,” “exporting democracy,” etc., are the rubrics under which the Deep State wages its perpetual never-ending wars. This is what the Deep State is all about.
To know whether a politician—especially a President—is in the pocket of the Deep State, look no further than the way he or she wages war. And anyone who is even halfway objective and awake can see that Donald Trump has become one of the Deep State’s most effective servants.
I’ll say it straight out: The Deep State doesn’t hate or fear Donald Trump; it loves Donald Trump, because Donald Trump is the warmonger’s warmonger.
Donald Trump is on a pace to drop more bombs and kill more innocent people during his first four years in office than Barack Obama did during eight years in office. In fact, Trump is dropping a bomb somewhere in the world every 12 minutes. This report notes:
We now know that Donald Trump’s administration puts all previous presidents to shame. The Pentagon’s numbers show that during George W. Bush’s eight years he averaged 24 bombs dropped per day, which is 8,750 per year. Over the course of Obama’s time in office, his military dropped 34 bombs per day, 12,500 per year. And in Trump’s first year in office, he averaged 121 bombs dropped per day, for an annual total of 44,096.
If the Deep State loved Obama, it absolutely adores Trump, because Donald Trump is escalating the Warfare State “to infinity and beyond.” Last Tuesday, Vice President Mike Pence even suggested that the Trump administration is considering deploying nuclear weapons into outer space.
The United States’ economy is a military-industrial complex. Therefore any multilateral arms control treaty that limits weapons and war tensions is by definition incompatible with the functioning of American-style capitalism.
President Donald Trump’s announced intention of withdrawing the US from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty is but the latest move by Washington in undoing decades of hard-won arms controls agreements.
The US unilaterally scrapped the Anti-Ballistic Missiles (ABM) Treaty back in 2002 under then-President GW Bush. That breach of a decades-old treaty has led to the installation of American missile systems in Europe ever-closer to Russian territory, as the US-led NATO military alliance relentlessly expanded eastwards.
By abandoning the INF, the US will have license to expand missile forces towards Russian and Chinese territory. Such an aggressive move could not be done openly for political reasons. Therefore, Washington is finding a pretext for its own violations by accusing Moscow of breaching the INF. Russia has repeatedly rejected US claims that it has violated the treaty, pointing out that the American side has never presented evidence to back up its claims.
The bigger picture [is] the US economy as a war-driven system. With an annual spend of over $700 billion on military – about half the total discretionary US budget and multiples more than any other foreign nation – the American economy is dependent on its military-industrial complex. That monstrous deformation of American capitalism, first warned by President Eisenhower in 1961, can only exist in the realm of relentless weapons production. That, in turn, relies on the US constantly creating global tensions and uncertainty, even to the point of inciting war.
This is why John Bolton shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near US foreign policy. This [pulling out of the INF treaty] would undo decades of bipartisan arms control dating from Reagan. We shouldn’t do it.
The US is saturated with weapons and doesn’t need a new nuclear build-up, former congressman Ron Paul has told RT, commenting on President Donald Trump’s threat to quit the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces in Europe (INF) treaty.
The former Republican congressman and head of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity told RT that he doesn’t believe a potential US withdrawal from the 1987 treaty would do anything to enhance US security.
Trump, if he follows through with his threat and tears down the landmark treaty, signed between US President Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, “won’t do us any good,” Paul said.
The US military industrial complex will try to justify the nuclear build-up by pointing to China’s militarization, a growing source of concern for the military establishment.
“It means that the American government, the military industrial complex wants to make a lot more weapons, because it is the Chinese: ‘The Chinese are making all those weapons, why can’t’ we?'”
Paul doesn’t believe that the supposed Chinese menace is a legitimate reason to keep churning out more weapons.
“We have enough weapons, not only to self-destruct but to destroy the world 10 times over and we don’t need to worry about not having enough weapons around.”
If the US pulls out of the treaty, it’s not because there is any need for more weaponry.
“I don’t think that’s a real argument,” Paul said.
It has taken the US military/security complex 31 years to get rid of President Reagan’s last nuclear disarmament achievement—the INF Treaty that President Reagan and Soviet President Gorbachev achieved in 1987.
The Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty was ratified by the US Senate on May 27, 1988 and became effective a few days later on June 1. Behind the scenes, I had some role in this, and as I remember what the treaty achieved was to make Europe safe from nuclear attack by Soviet short and intermediate range missiles, and to make the Soviet Union safe from US attack from short and intermediate range US nuclear missiles in Europe. By restricting nuclear weapons to ICBMs, which allowed some warning time, thus guaranteeing retaliation and non-use of nuclear weapons, the INF Treaty was regarded as reducing the risk of an American first-strike on Russia and a Russian first-strike on Europe, strikes that could be delivered by low-flying cruise missiles with next to zero warning time.
When President Reagan appointed me to a secret Presidential committee with subpoena power over the CIA, he told the members of the secret committee that his aim was to bring the Cold War to an end, with the result that, in his words, “those God-awful nuclear weapons would be dismantled.” President Reagan, unlike the crazed neoconservatives, who he fired and prosecuted, saw no point in nuclear war that would destroy all life on earth. The INF Treaty was the beginning, in Reagan’s mind, of the elimination of nuclear weapons from military arsenals. The INF Treaty was chosen as the first start because it did not substantially threaten the budget of the US military/security complex, and actually increased the security of the Soviet military. In other words, it was something that Reagan and Gorbachev could get past their own military establishments. Reagan hoped that as trust built, more nuclear disarmament would proceed.
Now that President Reagan’s remaining achievement has been destroyed, what are the consequences of the Trump administration’s concession to the profits of the US military/security complex?
There are many, none good.
The massive US military/security complex profits will increase as more increasingly scarce American resources flow into the production of intermediate range missiles in order to counter “the Russian threat.” The Republicans will want to pay for this by cutting Social Security and Medicare.
The Zionist neoconservatives now have their hope rekindled of re-establishing American and Israeli hegemony with an undetected first strike nuclear cruise missile attack on Russia.
The vast majority of the peoples in the world have no idea what is happening. They are trying to find or to keep jobs, to provide housing and food, to find the money for a mortgage or car or credit card payment in the US, and in much of the world water to drink and a bit of food to eat. They are stressed out. They have no energy to confront bad news or to figure out what is happening.
Donald Trump’s war fever is dangerously high. No wonder quintessential war hawk Senator Lindsey Graham suddenly loves Donald Trump. Trump is pushing the war envelope to every part of the globe. Iran, Syria, Pakistan, India, Russia, China and Venezuela are all under threat of imminent military—or even nuclear—attack by Donald Trump. Is Trump a madman, or is he merely the Deep State’s most loyal subject? It really won’t matter when the mushroom clouds start going up.
Anyone who believes that Donald Trump is fighting the Deep State truly does NOT get it.
There are many more tell-tale signs of how to identify people who do NOT get it, of course. But none are more glaring than the three listed in this column. Remember these signs as you listen to your “patriot” friends and our politicians talk, and they will never be able to buffalo you again.
Anyone who believes that the Republican Party is conservative, especially in the area of federal spending, is seriously deluded. I have said for years: The only difference between Democrats and Republicans is Democrats want to tax and spend, and Republicans want to borrow and spend; but both parties want to SPEND. And Donald Trump is no exception.
It’s Huuuuuge: US Budget Deficit Under Trump Rises 21%, Widest Gap in Six Years
The US is headed toward its largest annual deficit in six years, according to reports, and new facts released by the Fed point to Trump’s tax laws and heavy military spending as the reason for the spiraling vortex of national debt.
The Trump White House sharply altered its current US deficit estimates up — way up — last week, now projecting that the annual deficit will rise above $1 trillion for the first time since 2013, even as the Fed noted a $76.9 billion deficit for July alone, primarily a result of increased military and government spending as well as deep tax cuts to corporations and the wealthy.
The US Treasury Department — headed by Steve Mnuchin, a Trump pick that many in Congress have dubbed the ‘foreclosure king’ — has observed that in just the first 10 months of the 2018 fiscal year, the US deficit totaled $684 billion, a startling 20.8 percent rise over the same period in 2017.
US government revenue is up just 1 percent in 2018 to date, according to the Fed, as a big drop in corporate tax payments at the hands of the Trump administration has seen tax earnings for the Fed drop significantly.
Total government spending — particularly by the US military — has risen 4.4 percent, according to reports, after Congress boosted corporate-friendly programs and now suffers under the rapidly rising cost of financing an enormous debt, cited by Marketwatch.com.
As interest payments on US national debt jumped an astonishing 41 percent in July, many are wondering whether the system can sustain — nevermind correct — itself, according to Marketwatch.com.
US congressional budget analysts have estimated that the 2018 deficit will be some 19 percent larger than that for 2017.
Republican-authored tax laws and spending boosts approved by a Republican-controlled US Congress are noted to be the drivers of the rapidly increasing national debt, as the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has now predicted that trillion-dollar US deficits will return by 2020 at the latest.
A government spending spree of potentially historic proportions will play out over the final seven weeks of fiscal 2018, as federal agencies look to spend $140 billion more than they thought they’d get before Congress passed and President Trump signed the omnibus spending bill.
Without a budget agreement in place, agencies spent cautiously through the first two quarters of fiscal 2018 before the omnibus—signed six months late in March—obligated an additional $80 billion for defense and $63 billion for civilian agencies.
Federal agencies, now flush with cash, must obligate that money before the fiscal year ends on Sept. 30 or lose it to the Treasury Department. Analysts believe the federal market will see a monumental effort among procurement officials to spend as much on contracts as possible.
“If agencies are going to spend the extra money in fiscal 2018, it’s going to have to be at a much higher percentage in the fourth quarter than it has been historically,” David Berteau, president of the Professional Services Council, told Nextgov.
And, of course, President Trump just signed the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law that approves a $717 billion budget for so-called defense-spending. According to CNBC,
The 2019 National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, includes $616.9 billion for the Pentagon’s base budget, $69 billion for overseas contingency operations.
“Overseas contingency operations” means America’s ongoing “War on Terror,” otherwise known as “Wars For The New World Order” or “Wars For Globalists” or “Wars For The Deep State” or “Wars For Israel.” For all intents and purposes, the terms “New World Order,” “Globalists,” Deep State,” etc., all include the same entity: the Zionist State of Israel.
Speaking of the “War on Terror,” if you have not ordered Christopher Bollyn’s blockbuster new book The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East, I encourage you to do so quickly. This book dispels the myths and destroys the lies about who and what was behind the 9/11 attacks and what America’s “War on Terror” is really all about. Bollyn is a researcher and investigative journalist who has dared to expose the lies that have cost trillions of dollars and millions of lives—lies that are still the basis of America’s foreign policy and ongoing “War on Terror.” This book is MUST-READING.
And while we are on the subject, the American taxpayers continue to shell out billions of dollars for Benjamin Netanyahu’s Apartheid State.
Stephen Lendman reports:
Israel is Washington’s largest recipient of foreign aid. It’s mostly for militarism and belligerence – billions of dollars annually, far more than to any other nation.
The Jewish state’s imperial wars, occupation harshness, and apartheid high crimes don’t matter – nor its flagrant violations of international law, not even its abusive spying on US military and other operations.
The CIA earlier called Israel its main regional spy threat. The FBI once uncovered a large-scale US-based Israeli spy ring – still active the agency believes.
The Pentagon accused Israel of “actively engag(ing) in military and industrial espionage in the United States.”
Israel tries stealing everything it can get its hands on, including US military and industrial secrets, its main ally and benefactor.
The FY 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) includes $500 million for US-Israel missile defense cooperation, $50 million more for the Jewish state’s war on Gaza’s tunnel economy, wanting vital goods it supplies cut off, further strangling its beleaguered people.
The measure authorizes an additional billion dollars to stockpile US weapons in Israel – available for its killing machine, used to terrorize Palestinians, to terror-bomb Gaza and Syria, to partner in Washington’s imperial aggression.
Like America, Israel’s only enemies are invented ones, no others. Both nations wage endless wars without declaring them.
For the first time, the FY 2019 NDAA establishes a cooperative US/Israeli R&D program to enhance countering unmanned aerial vehicles.
On August 1, Senate members passed S. 2497: United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018 – unanimously without a roll call vote. Rubber-stamp House passage is certain.
The measure amends the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act and Arms Export Control Act. It authorizes additional funding for Israel’s killing machine, “and for other purposes” related to militarism and warmaking.
Congressional support for Israel is virtually unanimous. Both countries partner in each other’s high crimes.
New US funding for the Jewish state’s killing machine increases the Obama regime’s 2016 $38 billion package through 2026 – $3.8 billion annually, up from $3.1 billion a year earlier.
Most often, whatever Israel wants it gets – from the pockets of US taxpayers.
They’re largely unaware how their taxes are misused – for militarism, war-making and corporate handouts at the expense of other vital homeland needs.
All of Trump’s talk about draining the swamp and reining in the federal government is just that: TALK. Trump is spending money like a drunken sailor. No, that’s not really true. A drunken sailor spends his own money—money he has; Trump and his fellow miscreants in Washington, D.C., (from both parties) are spending OUR money—and it is money we don’t have.
Even the way Trump enacts tariffs is dishonest. After levying tariffs on foreign imports—ostensibly to balance the playing field in order to protect American trade interests—Trump turns around and gives billions of dollars to U.S. farmers that are hurt by those tariffs. Where do those billions of dollars come from? The U.S. taxpayers, that’s who. This is nothing more than old fashioned Crony Capitalism.
I’m telling you, Donald Trump doesn’t have an honest bone in his entire body. Like every other statist politician in Washington, D.C., Trump is bankrupting America to finance his Big-Government, Militaristic, Police State, Zionist agenda—all of his outsider, conservative rhetoric notwithstanding.
And still Republicans love him, and evangelical Christians adore him. Go figure.
Truly, no one can get by with out-of-control federal spending like Republicans. No one! Republicans in DC spend money the way Democrats talk about spending money.
As I said, the only difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Democrats want to tax and spend, and Republicans want to borrow and spend. And borrow and spend is exactly what Donald Trump and the Republicans in Washington, D.C. are doing—like there is no tomorrow.
P.S. I, again, urge readers to get Christopher Bollyn’s new blockbuster book The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East.
Christopher Bollyn—along with Professor Steven Jones and others—is one of the foremost investigative researchers of the 9/11 attacks whose findings have decimated the official story that 19 Muslim terrorists attacked the Pentagon and took down the Twin Towers in New York City.
In his book The War On Terror, Bollyn shows that the 9/11 attacks were actually part of a much larger international conspiracy and the culprits were not al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden or militant Muslims in general. Bollyn’s book proves who the real culprits were and also shows how these conspirators have masterminded a perpetual “War on Terror” that is serving several nefarious purposes, including the destruction of America’s liberties.
From the book’s back cover:
The government and media have misled us about 9/11 in order to compel public opinion to support the War on Terror.
Why have we gone along with it? Do we accept endless war as normal? Are we numb to the suffering caused by our military interventions?
No. We have simply been propagandized into submission. We have been deceived into thinking that the War on Terror is a good thing, a valiant struggle against terrorists who intend to attack us as we were on 9/11.
Behind the War on Terror is a strategic plan crafted decades in advance to redraw the map of the Middle East. 9/11 was a false-flag operation blamed on Muslims in order to start the military operations for that strategic plan. Recognizing the origin of the plan is crucial to understanding the deception that has changed our world.
