Donald Trump is channelling Ernst Stavro Blofeld yet again by doing his best to start WW3 with North Korea in a bid to divert attention away from a Grand Jury examining his entourage’s financial dealings with Russians.
Working hard to earn his Blofeld tag, Trump escalated the rhetoric by warning North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to stop the threats or face “fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
Robert Kelly, associate professor at Pusan National University, speculated that “the president may be playing the role of the madman, in a ruse to pressure the Chinese to get tough on Kim.”
Am not sure yet how much comfort can be derived from the thought Trump might be feigning madness rather than actually being mad.
Trump reprised his role as the James Bond supervillain Blofeld, this time
with an orange hair piece, sitting at a shiny boardroom table, opposite Jared Kushner, who potentially facing years in jail for his role in the Russia scandal, and beside Melania, facing destitution, if The Don ends up doing life.
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Trump pouted, crossing his arms in a curious way, anxious, it seemed, to hide his trademark tiny hands. “They will be met with fire and fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”
Becoming very predictable in his “madness”, Trump is revisiting his Blofeld moment while vacationing at one of his golf clubs (New Jersey, this time) where he has many more opportunities to meet with his handlers away from General John Kelly, the new White House Chief of Staff who is trying to keep tabs on him.
Last time, Blofeld Trump emerged in April just after Congress and Senate went into Easter recess, meaning they were less able to fulfil their oversight function. This time, the Bond supervillain is also back just after Congress and Senate went into summer recess, giving him, so he hopes, more freedom to court disaster.
Predictably also, it was a Washington Post report that North Korea now has a warhead that can fit inside missiles that sparked the latest escalation.
The WaPo’s editor Lally Weymouth hosted both Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump and George Soros during a July bash at her home in the Hamptons.
Ever since, the WaPo’s coverage of the Russian probe has been rater mute, to say the least. That indicates some kind of deal may have been struck over cocktails between Soros, Kushner and Trump, both of whom currently owe or have owed Soros money. If Soros has Trumpski in his pocket, he would not want him to be toppled by a mere probe into his dealings with kleptocratic Russian oligarchs.
Far from being on opposite sides of the fence, Soros and Trump are actually just on opposite sides of a Spectre international criminal organization, fighting like rival gangs for control over an inner city area. When it suits them, they will make deals with each other and fleece the sheeple together.
The fact that the Soros linked WaPo is now hyping the threat from North Korea as a diversion from the Russia probe and the deteriorating US economy should not, therefore, suprise anyone.
Putin and Henry Kissinger, who, along with H R McMaster, attended this year’s Bilderberg meeting will likely also cheer for the move as will Trump advisors like Roger Stone and Alex Jones.
Alex Jones has been having a very public nervous breakdown at the prospect of Trump’s indictment, making one wonder just what he was talking to Trump and Stone about during all those calls he now fears were being monitored.
Putin and his merry band of oligarchs are happy to do deals with anyone, with Hillary Clinton, Trump, whoever…but they will be especially happy to
see the USA engaged in a disastrous military escalation with North Korea as opposed to with Russia.
Kissinger too will likely applaud the move. He has been a busy man lately apparently sitting in on the Oval Office meeting between Trump and the Ruskies following the firing of James Comey.
Trumpkins bluster on North Korea was met with fierce criticism from Republican Senator John McCain
“I don’t know what he’s saying and I’ve long ago given up trying to interpret what he says,” McCain told KTAR.
He may have had in mind Trump’s remarks about nearly starting WW3 over “the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you have ever seen” at his golf course in Mar a Lago.
Asked how the leader of China had reacted to his announcement he had just fired 59 missiles at Syria, Trump said: “He paused for 10 seconds and then
he asked the interpreter to please say it again – I didn’t think that was a good sign.”
McCain noted that “Trump’s remarks could be pivotal in escalating a confrontation with North Korea, which could ultimately endanger South Korea in what he said could be a catastrophic scenario.
“They have 1,000 rockets aimed at Seoul that could set that city on fire,” he said.
Were he advising the President on this issue, McCain said, he would tell Trump to speak with the Chinese and accelerate the United States’ anti missile defense capabilities.”The key to this is China,” McCain said.”
It is, indeed, not at all clear why the USA cannot just activate a missile shield as powerful as the one now installed in eastern Europe to stop North Korean
missiles if they are indeed as big a threat as the WaPo claims. This shield is considered to be so effective by Russia, that Putin himself last May personally threatened Romania and Poland for activating it last May.
“If yesterday in those areas of Romania people simply did not know what it
means to be in the cross-hairs, then today we will be forced to carry out
certain measures to ensure our security,” Putin told a joint news
conference in Athens with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.
“It will be the same case with Poland,” he said.
And it is not clear why Trump refuses to play the ace of more tariffs on
Chinese imports to the USA to pressure China to do more on North Korea.
Trump’s war mongering with North Korea is sure to erode his popularity with
those of his base, who are not Russian bots, since he pledged to end costly
and pointless military interventions. But clearly, Trump does not
care about his base at all. Staying out of a federal prison is his aim,
even if it means blowing up the entire world making any comparison with Blofeld quite justified.
