"President Donald Trump needed to accomplish two things this week during his visits to Poland and the G-20 Summit in Hamburg.
First, he needed to reassure America’s allies that he was committed to collective defense and the core set of values and principles that bind us together. Second, he needed to demonstrate that he understands that the greatest threat to that alliance, those values, and our security is the Kremlin.
Trump delivered neither of these.
In very concrete terms, through speech and action, the president signaled a willingness to align the United States with Vladimir Putin’s worldview, and took steps to advance this realignment. He endorsed, nearly in its totality, the narrative the Russian leader has worked so meticulously to construct...."
TRUMP HANDS STUNNING VICTORY TO PUTIN
WHAT TRUMP SAID AT G-20
“We celebrate our ancient heroes, embrace our timeless traditions and customs,” Trump said, echoing a consistent theme of Putin’s since 2013: that survival depends upon an identity based in “traditional” values. This fundamental identity is something both men define as inherently under attack from “outside forces”—perhaps terrorists, or immigrants, or George Soros, or maybe the Chinese. Trump asked “whether the West has the will to survive.” Putin defines the enemy as liberal Western values, like tolerance and inclusivity, which he views as the product of a West in decline—something the two leaders agree on."
KEY TO TRUMP CODE MEANT FOR TRUMP FOLLOWERS
- ancient heroes = white men
- traditional values = we're going to stop any change away from anything not white male oriented (conservatism itself)
- do we have the will to survive = stop anything not white from entering or advancing inside the country AND stopping all non-whites from advancing outside the country too.
LOOKING AT WHY TRUMP KEEPS TRYING TO EMBRACE PUTIN DESPITE INVESTIGATIONS INTO RUSSIA LINKS
Just before his meeting with Putin, Trump said other countries may have hacked our elections last year and in the past.
This is as defensive a move as Trump could make in light of his camp supposedly being investigated
So I've been trying to figure out what Trump's deal is here. I mean stupidity doesn't explain this --not all by itself. With everything that's going on in regards to Trump's campaign being investigated, supposedly, why would he cling to Vladimir Putin?
At first I started thinking Trump is attracted to Putin because he's a conservative white male too. So I started wondering if there not enough white men in Trump's international inner circle of friends, the masters of the universe associated with the G7?
The Group of Seven (G7) is an informal bloc of industrialised democracies. Its current members make up nearly 50 percent of the world economy, and represent more than 60 percent of net global wealth.
The G7 takes no mandatory decisions, and the meeting is billed as an opportunity to allow leaders to exchange ideas in key issues. A leaders' declaration at the end of summit is not binding in nature.
The presidency, which rotates among member states, is responsible for setting the agenda and arranging logistics.
The G7 no longer represents all of the world's leading economies. A broader club, the Group of 20, or G20, was set up in 1999 and includes other major global players, including China, India, Brazil, South Korea, Australia, South Africa and Turkey.
So what if this elite group representing white western countries doesn't have enough white maleness in it for Trump?
The White supremacist / male supremacist mindset is so simple-minded it's hard to figure out sometimes. And if there are money making opportunities in Russia too, Trump's behavior really could be as simple as Trump looking for another conservative white male to cling to during international decision making time.
Remember, Trump couldn't even go to Washington D.C. without part of his daughter being with him in his corner. This needy white supremacist could need other white male conservatives near him at all times -- even in international meetings.
So let's look at the G7
- Japan is being run by somebody Japanese, as in not white. Dismissed.
- Germany is being run by a woman, Angela Merkel. Dismissed.
- Italy's Italians got adopted into U.S. whiteness last and Italy isn't a serious power player by Trump standards. Dismissed.
- England is being run by a woman, Teresa May. Dismissed.
- France is being run by a progressive leading white man. Dismissed.
- Canada is being run by a progressive white man. Dismissed.
Conclusion: Trump's inner international circle is not chock full of powerful,white, male conservatives.
Next, I continued my investigation by checking to see if Vladimir Putin could be even more attractive to Trump because a white supremacist too. But when I put "Vladimir Putin" and "white supremacy" in google, I didn't wind up reading that much about Putin per se because I found out two things that are much more important:
1) I discovered that Trump is not alone in his love of Russia
2) I discovered that I need to watch more white supremacist television and not just Fox News either.
Richard Spencer (alt-right white nationalist), Matthew Heimbach, (the White Nationalist Traditionalist Worker Party) and David Duke (KKK) all adore Russia too. I can't believe I missed this (especially since I thought I read about this before a long time ago)
For America’s white nationalists, there is only one nation—and one leader—worth emulating. And it has nothing to do with lederhosen or Wagner.
Richard Spencer, the current face (and haircut) of US’s alt-right, believes Russia is the “sole white power in the world.” David Duke, meanwhile, believes Russia holds the “key to white survival.” And as Matthew Heimbach, head of the white nationalist Traditionalist Worker Party, recently said, Russian president Vladimir Putin is the “leader of the free world”—one who has helped morph Russia into an “axis for nationalists.”
For those Americans who are just now familiarizing themselves with Russia’s current political proclivities—due to the recent, high-profile Russian hacking allegations, say, or the brutal military campaign in Aleppo—Moscow’s transformation into a lodestar for America’s white supremacists is enough to cause whiplash. After all, just a few decades ago Moscow was a beacon for the far-left, and its influential Communist International provided material and organizational heft for those pushing Soviet-style autocracy around the world. Over the past few years, however, the Kremlin has cultivated those on the far-right end of the West’s political spectrum in the pursuit, as Heimbach told me, of reifying something approaching a “Traditionalist International...”
This white-hate-group/Russia connection been reported in all sorts of main stream newspapers and magazines...but it's not being reported that often. And when it is reported it's not being reported as accurately as it cold be.
That is, white run newspapers are doing all of us a disservice.
Trump's obsession with black President was removed from this NY Times article among a host of other things. Mainstream newspapers that Trump has declared the enemy continues to spit polish Trump's image before publishing.
Is this NY Times editing supposed to represent loyalty to the truth, loyalty to America (by propping up a bad leader) , or just more dismissal of evidence of Trump's white supremacist mindset at trivial?
