Trump Presidency: What His New Team Might Teach Us

Donald Trump, Elections, Foreign Policy, Republicans

While I disagree with the writer’s conclusions regarding Donald Trump’s selection of successful businessmen, not all Anthony Zurcher’s questions are unreasonable, following President-elect Trump’s cabinet picks. After all, they’re “not exactly drawn from the ranks of the angry populist masses”:

* Since “the president-elect has frequently turned to the military brass,” will “Mr Trump’s picks give his administration a decidedly martial bent”? He campaigned on “a less interventionist foreign policy.”

* “Mr Trump railed against the political establishment on the campaign trail, but some of his nominees are very comfortable in the Washington ‘swamp'”: “Tom Price, slated for Health and Human Services, is a member of the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives. … Elaine Chao served as labour secretary under President George W Bush and is married to Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell,” not to mention Republican Party darling, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.

Why The Globalists In Washington Hate Russia

Foreign Policy, Neoconservatism, Russia

The pious Yankee mindset is to force “our values” on others through war or other belligerence. The Russians don’t share our values. They must be cowed into submission. Writing in Chronicles Magazine, Denis Petrov captures the essence of Washington’s Russophobia. Why Washington’s? Because looking for a brawl with the Russian Bear (also battling Islam) works for Washington and its “expert” and think-tank industry. It goes against the interests of the American people:

Consider Russia’s laws against “gay propaganda”: There are no “gay pride” marches in Moscow. Russia has resisted the expansion of NATO and the extension of E.U. influence to Ukraine. Putin has asserted Russian national interests, defending Moscow’s independent foreign-policy course. In short, Russia is a retrograde, “homophobic,” nationalistic roadblock on the way to the globalist millennium. No wonder Hillary Clinton has compared Putin to Hitler: In her eyes, it all makes perfect sense. Putin and Russia symbolize all that the globalist mind despises. The globalists’ visceral hostility to Russia is not merely a hangover from the Cold War or an excuse for the perpetuation of a vast U.S. military-industrial-security complex—though hostility is stoked by those things as well. Russia and Putin are manifestations of what neocon and neoliberal globalists see as atavistic resistance to global progress; the world revolution demands that obstacles be removed from its path.
