Over the cliff

Trump may well be destroyed by those around him, not killed as Bill Bennett has claimed, but torpedoed by those who have profiled his many weaknesses and are using CIA interrogation and mind control techniques to steer him away from important subjects.

Trump is being led down a path that not only trivializes American politics more than usual, something long thought impossible, but totally avoids real issues.

When confronted with a real “axis of evil,” that being Saudi Arabia and Turkey, easy targets, Islamic, brutal and clear supporters of international terrorism, he could have gone after them and, in the process, left other candidates in the dust while he pilloried the Obama administration for its epic moral failures.

Instead, Trump handlers chose a different route, one neither good for Trump nor America but one good for, well who, Turkey and Saudi Arabia and, just perhaps, the bagmen, thugs and blackmailers who have gotten so close to those who are so close to Trump. Trump never learned about “counter-intelligence.”

When this campaign began, “Trump handlers” contacted me about advising the campaign. I wasn’t sure what they wanted, secret briefings or an operational team like the CIA would use to rig an election, nothing new for America as too many know too well.

What Trump needed was a team to watch those around him and look for patterns, how his briefing information was being focused toward or away from certain issues. Is Trump being steered toward “clowndom” when he might well have laid bare decades of hypocrisy, something only Trump with his media savvy ways and cash could have done.

This was before Trump began talking, saying pretty much anything, or what seems to be “anything,” going from “scare porn” to populism to conspiracy theory. Pretty soon a pattern emerged. It hasn’t led us to assuming Trump is Satan or working for “the Jews” or whatever today’s popular smear is.

It has told us that he is not “hands on,” that he surrounds himself with acolytes who are not so bright, not so capable and that his organization is heavily penetrated by intelligence agencies. We also believe Trump himself is unaware and genuinely believes he is making sense and speaking truth.

Trump is not only self-funding but a compelling media figure. He has years of experience navigating New York’s mob run communities and knows how to get tough, or what he thinks is tough. This puts Trump at the head of the pack against the failures and mama’s boys that make up the GOP stable, with the exception of Jeb Bush.

Bush did time in Venezuela setting up banking for the Colombian cartels and even married into a cartel family.

Bush knows the mob well, is much more mob connected than Trump. Both are physical cowards, not just because they shunned military service at the height of the Vietnam War. It goes much further — rich kids whose entire lives have been prep schools, limousines and people who tell them nothing but what they want to hear.

For Bush, it has been a life of dancing near the edge, skirting prosecution for financial frauds and narcotics deals, arms smuggling and political fraud.

For Trump, it has been a series of bankruptcies, a life on public welfare, playing the system while increasingly becoming, as Clint Eastwood had coined it so aptly, “a hero in his own mind.”

Attacking Trump, certainly the most interesting candidate and, flawed though he may be, perhaps the least flawed of the front runners, save for the ever angelic Bernie Sanders, is the wrong thing to do. Trump could be another Reagan, this time writing at least some of his own scripts as “acting president.”

We also must understand that statements credited to Trump, his banning of Muslim immigrants for instance, are taken out of context. Trump speaks continually and says whatever blurts into his mind.

This leaves him vulnerable to attacks but it also guarantees him press exposure and the ability to turn everything to his own advantage. This is a good thing, or will be in the end anyway.

Trump’s own vision is limited by his background, his lack of personal challenges, and in particular, clear signs that he has never grown, not to his potential, which is considerable. This is sad because America could use a “Trump 2.0” instead of the “Windows Vista” version we have now.

Early on in the campaign, it became clear that Trump wanted to break new political ground. He had seen the power of the alternative media, he had watched scams like Jade Helm or the half dozen phony Russian invasion stories from InfoWars seize the public’s attention and even when totally debunked, Trump recognized that America has developed a huge appetite for paranoid fantasy.

Here are a few fat targets Trump should go after:

The Federal Reserve system, something only Trump could explain and something so sinister and so obviously illegal that, if finally someone took them on as only Trump could do, Americans would finally understand why they feel like slaves.

Turkey and Saudi Arabia, with their open support of world terrorism, have finally opened the door to a reassessment, not only of 9/11 but for every event, every shooting, every downed airliner, to be viewed as not only potential false flag terror but “probable.”

It is time Americans knew the ties between major financial groups and the powerful drug cartels that are taking over state after state, every level of government and, in particular, police agencies.

It is time to address who profits from illegal immigration.

Trump could, finally, indict the CIA for its role in drug trafficking and get America out of Afghanistan, where we remain, year after year, running the largest narcotics production facility in the world.

Only Trump could address these vital issues, and dozens more, and be heard. Instead, he is pushed into personal invective and time wasting. This isn’t an accident, not hardly.

  1. Good article Gordon. Despite his bumbling – Trump may be the only one to shove it where it needs to go. And NO HE IS NOT A ZIONIST SHILL – just awkward with the subject and more bumbling. He is not a politician – and I would bet the reason he endorsed bibi as PM of Israhell was simply because bibi is a passionate speaker. I seriously doubt that Trump would continue to support bibi once he fully realized the extent of the criminal charade. I would love to hear him say “your fired” to that psycho. We can hope & pray Trump exposes the criminal FED business model. He’s the only one that would at this point.

  2. Trump is a self-destructing, RNC-destructing candidate whose primary purpose is to ensure that Hillary becomes president — possibly unbeknowst to The Donald. Hillary is the candidate of The Cabal (Bush/Clinton, RKM etc.).

    Trump bought Resorts Internatinal from a criminal syndicate controlled by the Kosher Mafia, CIA & Mossad. Trump also endorsed Netanyahu for Israeli PM.

    Global oddsmakers are taking bets on who will become U.S. president: 2-to-1 for Hillary and 10-to-1 for Trump. Rubio was doing better at 4.5-to-1.

    For more info on the above, see “Les Intérêts Rothschild Derrière Donald Trump” (“Trump wants to be President, but will mob ties derail the flamboyant frontman?”) by Michael Collins Piper (a friend) and “Old & Elite At War With Young & Poor” on YouTube by Fintan Dunne (also a friend).

    Gordon’s cat would be a better president. However, if we can steer The Donald to address the right issues before he’s taken out, we might/will make a big difference.

  3. Good idea, to do briefings for Trump, Sanders, and anyone else who does well in the first primaries. Charge a reasonable fee, the same fee for everyone. Or they could all chip in and do a group conference call together. That could be fun for a change, having candidates who are clued in instead of clueless.

  4. Signs and symbols rule the world or so the saying goes, and I have seen pictures with Mr. Trump giving the 666 and triangle sign.

    He is part of the ‘club’ as far as am I concerned.


  5. Mr Duff, I think you can make a big difference by helping Mr Trump. You’ll be doing the USA a big favour whilst you’re at it too. Think of it as a service to your country again, only this time you’ll be helping the rest of the world at the same time. And great article BTW.

  6. Tuesday in Iowa, Trump said in his speech: “Hillary should be in prison.” He’s doing all right in the Truth Department, even without your help.

  7. Trump seems like he’s on the same team as the globalists. He’s a disinfo agent who tells some of the truth, while acting like an arrogant buffoon so people dismiss what he says. The elections are a scripted program, everyone has their part to play.

  8. The U.S election campaign’s, the biggest circus act on planet earth.

    Keep the baby seals clapping while preparing to bludgeon them with a big club

  9. Trump is our only hope, I wish you people would help him any way you could, if there is going to be an election going forward, for the economy and the dollar, as Kyle Bass has quoted might be killed before the election and dire consequences might usher in a world we have not witness before, as in some type of Martial Law which could leave Obama as President beyond his appointed time. Then there is the Hillary factor, how could Obama let her spell the beans if she was indicted, that both of them goofed in retrieving the 400 stinger missiles that were part of what was really going on in Benghazi ? What exactly did go on with that ? All I feel it was high Treason to say the least.
    As I said before about Trump, he knows about 9/11, he knows about construction, he knows that those building could not have fallen as shown on the TV…he knows about Silverstein and what went on with the Port Authority bidding process for those building and the asbestos problem in acquiring them in the first place. Even though NYC is a big place, anyone in the business are a small group and we know who bids for what and who is hiring who especially when dealing with the stone and who is bring it in.

    • jmv ,,,Why should stone relax?? Was one of the most insightful reality based posts ive read. Obviously stone is one who “gets it” .. That is exactly what the focus should be on and why Trump is a fraud in my world until something changes. Until he calls out the jooos for 9-11, the intentional financial “crisis” of 08 and the even more diabolical counterfeiting of 4 trillion by the likes of Yellen Yellen The Counterfeiting fellon” hes a false profit , controlled resistance in my world. This guy cant possibly not know that if he tries to work for the people , hell be shown a nice limo ride on a sunny day in Dallas.

    • “The Federal Reserve [Banks] are one of the most corrupt institutions, the world has ever seen. There is not a man, within the sound of my voice, who does not know that this Nation is run by the International Bankers.”
      ~ Congressman Louis T. McFadden, 1933; lost reelection two years later and died one year after that

      Trump, like everyone else, should know what’s really going on, but if he lacks the guts to risk ending up like McFadden or JFK, it will not matter. “Physical cowards,” as Duff put it, will not go up against the “monolithic and ruthless conspiracy.”

    • Really doing something about the 9/11 issue means doing something about the bankster money issue first. “Let me issue and control a nation’s money, and I care not who writes the laws,” remember? Even if Trump flat out said 9/11 was an inside job, nothing would get done about it as long as the banksters controlled the mainstream media, the military, the alphabet soup agencies, etc.

  10. This election production is painfully depressing, the sadness of what things have become. Any chance Trump would run 3rd party?
