US Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s terror hysteria, combined with the ever-growing terrorist attacks around the world means that a dark future awaits America in case the presumptive GOP nominee becomes president, says American scholar Kevin Barrett, an editor at Veterans Today.

The Madison-based analyst made the comments over Trump’s bold claim that he knew who downed an Egyptian passenger plane that went missing on Thursday.

This “appears to many people in the United States and around the world as another example of Trump’s bizarre tendency to shoot from the hip and say things that have absolutely no backing,” Barrett told Press TV on Friday.

Barrett also described the claim as “a smart step” by Trump, saying the presumptive GOP nominee was going to benefit if it turned out that the EgyptAir jet indeed went down in a terror attack, Barrett noted.

“Trump is actually much smarter than his detractors give him credit,” according to Barrett.

“By hyping the alleged terrorist threat in these hysterical terms, Trump is going to gain enormously from this assuming it turns out to actually be a terrorist incident,” he said.

The situation, Barrett said, also points out the dilemma Trump’s opponents are faced with in understanding him.

“His political acumen is quite extraordinary even as he does indeed pose a real threat to many American traditions,” the scholar said.

Barrett then made an analogy between the EgyptAir crash and the September 11, 2001 attacks, saying in both cases Trump has argued that he knows the real perpetrators but is not likely to reveal them.

“He is going to rise into the White House on a wave of terror hysteria and he is going to be in a position to push the neocon policies that came from the inside job of 9/11,” Barrett said. “That is the war on Islam, the doubling or more of the military budget, ramping up of support for Zionism and Israel.”

The analyst said people behind the creation of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group and similar terror organizations were responsible for the latest surge in attacks over the world.

“I don’t know whether or not Trump knows this, but if he did, he would not have the courage to speak up and I see a very dark future for the United States as Trump and terror hysteria are simultaneously rising,” the academic concluded.

  1. Forgive my cynicism, but does anyone remember “Hope & Change” and “Change We Can Believe In” (2008) and the euphoria of having seen the election of the First Black President? (… only 50% Black actually). We then watched with baited breath while his White half kicked into gear and he broke every campaign plank over the next eight years.

    And you are expecting a different outcome this time?
    Classic definition of Insanity.

    You want REAL change?
    Be prepared to do some very heavy lifting – and see a lot of blood.

  2. What fiction is this? Others have said it but I have to repeat… why in the world would Trump accept money from this snake? He’s already turned down in the course of his campaign offers that amount to much more than this when combined. He’s been mostly self funding so far and is way under budget at this point. He’s pointed out in many of his appearances the reason he should be elected, among many others, is the fact that he’s beholden to nobody expect the American People. “We the People” want a wall. We want massive deportations of illegal aliens. We want the war on guns, Christmas and the 1st Amendment to end yesterday. We’re sick of being lied to by MSM and their co-criminals in the US and see Mr. Trump as the only viable way to make a beginning at getting out of this oncoming train wreck the nation is headed for if its current course isn’t changed. Trump. Landslide. 2016 & 2020.

  3. Interesting to watch but unsettling nonetheless. Killary with such a history of dead bodies politically as well as playing a key role in the deaths of so many in Libya, etc. But on the other hand, Trump. She-it. The major thing they have in common is… they both are sociopathic liars. Sad state of affairs isn’t it. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

  4. Although I understand the major concerns presented in this article, I think it’s obvious that Trump is not the one who initiated with Adelson – the other way around and as one reader said, “Adelson is hedging his bets.” Adelson “put the word out” with a little “seed money” to see if Trump will bite. There are way to many conflicting issues that the banking / corporate cabal have and I do not see this going the traditional route at all. Rather – this upcoming election is a the very least a transition.

  5. I don’t understand, the alternative, the Bitch of Satan, is an even bigger threat to the world. Kevin, would you prefer her as president?

    With Trump there is at least a small chance things may play out differently, with the BoS in charge the likelihood for things going to hell is a lot higher.

    Lots of people rightly criticise the Donald, on the other hand they don’t mention the alternative much. Practically, criticism of the Donald without also criticising the BoS turns out as an endorsement of her.

    My impression is that most editors of VT support the BoS. It’s a bit worrisome, why would anyone with knowledge support her? Only reason I can find is that there might be common interests somewhere.

  6. Nope, I would go for Mr. Trump, if I were you. Adelsohn is hoping for influence, but Trump will never be an Israeli firster. He is a true American patriot, and that scares the living hell out of the Jews.
    What do you expect him to do? Show open animosity and say no to Adelsohn? He is wiser than that. The man is challenging the Dreadful few. Pray to God there will be no opportunity for them to JFK him.

  7. Adelson is hedging his bet; the writing on the wall is very clear. He wants to be in, not out.

    • Agreed that Adelson is hedging his bet. And was Trump supposed to refuse the money
      when he needs to raise funds for the general election? Refusing it would have been
      too strong a signal in the other direction, and a very bad political move for Trump. Of course
      he accepted the money. That is not to say I am not worried. I am. But I wouldn’t put too much
      on him taking money from Adelson. Accepting donations is not a good thing but appears necessary.
      Given that, he wasn’t going to refuse money from Sheldon Adelson. I don’t think it means that Trump is
      going to be a neocon. Neocons are afraid of him. It is useful to keep remembering this because it is true. Now, if he puts John Bolton in as secretary of state and Tom Cotton in as Secretary of Defense as neocon Ben Shapiro of the “never Trump” movement has suggested he do (as a step towards making Trump acceptable), that would be a different story.
