RT News Political Commentator John Bosnitch gives an analysis of the inexplicable US bombing of Syria

Reblogged from RT

RT: Happily to say that John Bosnitch political commentator that is joining us live from Belgrade’s capital of Serbia to speak more on that the situation on the developments overnight and through the day hi there John;

RT: And a Russian lawmaker has claimed that the US strike resembles other American interventions referring to Yugoslavia’s bombing among others you are of course speaking to us from Serbia’s a said what he meant of that comparison.

John Bosnitch: Well the difference the main difference here is that Trump is just barely taking over his own administration and we’re not even certain whether Pres. Trump is fully in control of the decision-making process in the United States. His chief campaign aide has been removed from the Security advisory Council, several of these key advisors have been pushed aside so one can’t yet be sure whether Trump himself is fully in charge of this decision-making process, that’s the big difference when the bombing took place here in the former Yugoslavia the plans were set in motion months in advance this looks like an ad hoc operation coming out of Washington today.

RT: The US carried out the attack without the approval we know of the UN’s Security Council without the permission of the Syrian government as well if fellow at UN membership we forget.

Is this a clear violation of international law?

John Bosnitch: If international law has any meaning anymore yes of course it is you can’t to harm another sovereign country no matter what the grounds. First he would have to have the permission of the country’s own government.  Second if it involved a disputed issue you would have to refer to the UN Security Council and the Security Council would have to conduct an investigation.

What’s happening here is been a rush to bombing without even an investigation of who was responsible for the for the chemical weapons incident nor any kind of coordination between the two governments and we do have an and that’s between the US and Syrian government but the other factor here is we have the government of Russia where President Putin has been in charge were well over a decade and his organization and his machine is moving smoothly and in coordination with the Syrian government.


What’s happening here is been a rush to bombing without even an investigation of who was responsible for the for the chemical weapons incident


We cannot say that about Washington, and in fact in Washington today many people are asking who made this decision.

RT: It was actually said a thought that UN Security Council John the pictures of which we’ve been showing for the broadcast that there is no evidence on who or how the chemical attack was carried out it leaves the question therefore why is Washington and its allies acting before the UN investigation?

John Bosnitch: Well you know not to go too deep into the speculation because we could imagine any possibilities here.  The first and most obvious would be that perhaps American intelligence personnel know that the Syrian government was not responsible for the chemical weapons incident but chose to flip-flopped this incident into a means to engage trump in aggressive military action that could be in other words a continuing battle between the deep state and the newly elected president chosen by the people of America that’s the first option.

The second option is that nobody knows who conducted the chemical weapons incident and that the United States is gone in a rush to judgment, which is quite strange given the United States concepts of fair trial fair hearing and democratic perspiration in decision-making. so either of these two possibilities are negative for the United States.

The third one that perhaps the Syrian government conducted this incident still wouldn’t be grounds for unilateral action by the United States and furthermore if the Syrian government conducted the the chemical weapons attack one would have to ask why? They’ve effectively won this war they were mopping up the resistance from Isis and from other Jihadist extremist groups. they were within weeks of what it would look like a complete victory and to suddenly provoke international attacks upon them makes no sense at all and I don’t hear anybody suggesting that Asaad is insane.

(In audible) So I cannot conclude that he made this decision.

RT: Well strategically bid Lib region was not all that important and in the in the light of all the at tragedy after a lot of corsets become very much so and one of the points you’re a senior Russian lawmaker has suggest that the Pentagon did not’s agree with Trump’s stance on Asaad previously because we heard from at a secretary of state we are from other US officials on from President Trump himself  that he was not against a presidential election for instance happening in Syria  and for president Asaad  being president in that meantime but now the opposite has occurred was there pressure put on is not a possibility do you think?

John Bosnitch: At this stage in the game anything is possible President Trump is very newly in office. he has not yet had the time to establish his own operations he is relying on a military especially military and intelligence infrastructure that was created and run now for decades by the people he defeated in the election. So we have the Clinton administration followed by the Bush administration followed by the Obama administration all following the same policy.

They’ve had almost 30 years to infiltrate and establish whatever kind of infrastructure they like. It cannot be cleaned up by Trump in a matter of three months.

There is a big battle ahead of us and it’s not in Syria it’s in Washington.

RT: John Bosnitch political commentator we appreciate your thoughts and your time in coming in the program this hour thank you.


 

President Donald Trump’s verbatim inauguration speech

Trump Making America Great

Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and the people of the world: thank you.

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come. We will face challenges. We will confront hardship. But we will get the job done.

Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you.

Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington DC and giving it back to you, the people.

For too long a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left, and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.

Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes. Starting a right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment, it belongs to you. It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day, this is your celebration. and this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now.

You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before, at the centre of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighbourhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public, but for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists.

Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation, an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge; and the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.
We are one nation, and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams, and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.

The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.

For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry, subsidize the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military. We’ve defended other nations’ borders while refusing to defend our own, and spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.

We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind. The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world, but that is the past, and now we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first.

Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigrations, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.

I will fight for you with every breath in my body, and I will never, ever let you down.

America will start winning again, winning like never before. We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth, and we will bring back our dreams.

We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.
We will get our people off of welfare and back to work rebuilding our country with American hands and American labour. We will follow two simple rules: buy American, and hire American.

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interest first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example, we will shine for everyone to follow.

We will reinforce all alliances and form new ones, and unite the civilised world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth.
At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.
When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

The Bible tells us: “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity”.

We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.

There should be no fear. We are protected, and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement, and most importantly, we will be protected by God.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only a living as long as it is striving.

We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.

The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.

Do not allow anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of the new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.

A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our sights, and healed our divisions.

It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots. We all enjoyed the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American flag, and whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same Almighty Creator.

So, to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, from ocean to ocean hear these words: You will never be ignored again!

Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams will define our American destiny. and your courage in goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together, we will make America strong again! We will make America a wealthy again! We will make America proud again! We will make America safe again! and yes, together, we will make America great again.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America. Thank you, God bless America. – President Donald J. Trump


 

No one can be as Intellectually Diminished as Former President Bush

Stupidity-Trump-vs-GW-Bush

By André Faust (Nov 30, 2016)

The American election date has come and gone, and in the aftermath of this election, the Americans are getting ready to usher in their new president  Donald Trump.  Never before has anyone seen an election that looked more like the Jerry Springer show than an election.  The media coverage was in the style that Barnum Baily would have applauded.

Regardless of this show, the American  people made their decision at the polls through the election process that is an attribute to the concept of democracy.  What is disturbing is the mass rejection of the election outcome, a total dismissal of democracy.

Historically we have seen many times coups d’étate carried out in many parts of the world where a segment of the population was not satisfied with the outcome of an election, for the most part, the rejection of the elections has thrown those countries into a state of instability.  Is that what future has in store for the United States?

During the 2016 Campaign Trump has made some outlandish statements, that made the politically correct camp cringe at the sound his words. Speaking hypothetically, Trump the actor focused on the emotions of the common person to get elected, he was able to successfully play on electorate’s emotions because of his ability to read his audience and give them what they want.

Now that Donald Trump is President-elect what can the American people and the world expect from him once he assumes office? The Associated Press announced that Trump has closed a deal with Carrier Air Conditioners to keep 1,000 jobs in Indiana, originally Carrier had planned to close the Indiana plant down and relocated their air conditioning plant in Mexico. (The Associated Press, 2016).  While the Carrier deal may be just a flash in the pan, other the other hand in may be an early indicator of Donald Trump’s economic strategy “To make America Great” (Trump, 2016).

If Donald trump maintains consistency on job creation and job retention, we should further see a rise confidence in the new economic strategy as previously  cited by The Washington Examiner. Confidence has increased 17%, the highest in 8 years. (Bedard, 2016).r

While Trump may have the potential to resolve the economics of America, there is the another side of the coin, social policy.  If Trump implements his social philosophy into policy, will these policies be to the detriment of the American People? According to the BBC website, Trump has articulated 24 of his personal solutions to the social issues that are currently facing the American people, however, at this time no one really knows what he will do once he is in office. (BBC, 2016)

‘Fake news’ & Russian ‘sophisticated propaganda machinery’ trend spreads, picked up by media

The Washington Post’s latest hit-piece claims a ‘sophisticated [Russian] propaganda campaign’ influenced the US presidential election, ‘fueled Trump’s victory’, ‘pushed BREXIT’. Citing a Cold War think tank and an anonymous ‘anti-propaganda’ group, the piece used the word ‘propaganda’ 20 times.

PA party leader Kris Austin commentary regarding U.S. election results

austintrumph-2Many people woke up this morning bewildered by the US Presidential election results.  How could a presidential candidate who smashed through every concept of political normalcy actually pull it off?

The traditional playbook that outlines expert opinions from political pundits was rebuffed by Trump, and a completely uncharted course was laid out and followed by his campaign.  How could such a controversial figure do everything wrong by traditional standards and still hold the key to the White House when the results rolled in?  I think the answer is actually quite simple.  People are tired of the status quo, politically correct establishment that is so entrenched in a broken system, and Hillary Clinton was the poster child of such a system.

What is really important to realize is that this movement of rejection of established politics did not begin with Trump, and it certainly will not end there.  We can look to the Arab Spring in 2010, or to countries like Greece & Iceland, or to the controversial election of President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines, or more recently to the decision of England to leave the European Union (Brexit) as evidence.  This is a global and growing movement that is redefining the world at large and creating a revolution that is obliterating polished and comfortable politics.

In reality, we do not have to look to the Middle East, Europe, or our neighbours to the South to see this.  All you have to do is stop by your local coffee shop and listen to the citizens there to find resentment of a broken and corrupted system right here at home.

And who can blame people?  We are tired of paying ridiculously high taxes and getting sub-standard government service in return.   We loathe the ribbon cutting photo-ops of professional politicians handing our tax dollars over to multi-billion dollar corporations. We are infuriated that governments continue to support language segregation in our schools, healthcare system, and other public services.

What further stokes a righteous indignation among our population is when our elected leaders use politically correct arguments to try and convince us these things are good.  The Atcon scandal, the Alward forestry deal, and linguistic duality (to name just a few) are indefensible, and no “expert” advice can argue against what is plain common sense.

Yesterday, Americans asked themselves if the traditional status quo politics has really been working for them, and they used the ballot box to give the answer.  No doubt our own political elite here at home felt the cold chill of such a decision, and are scrambling to stop the inevitable.

As Trump cleverly stated, it’s time to drain the swamp.
