What Manner of “America First” and “Making America Great Again” is This?

President Trump’s servile kowtowing to Israel’s aggressive Zionist policies of expansion of illegal settlements and repression of Palestinians, makes it difficult to fully support him at times against the howling leftist marauding mobs, the sinister regime media, and deep state set to destroy him.

Along with his appointment of Senator Jeff Sessions as attorney general, whose illogical and unfounded personal crusade of “reefer madness” in seeking to revamp and expand the failed and futile War on Drugs — America’s longest and most unsustainable war — a war aimed at the American people, their lives and liberties — are two of Trump’s most serious and grave mistakes since becoming president.

When he entered office in 1933 in the midst of the Great Depression, FDR made himself a national hero by ending the farce of Prohibition. Trump could have done the same, a first step on the road to Making America Great Again (Great and More Free)

In the early 1990s Trump called the War on Drugs a failure and called for its abolition.

“We’re losing badly the war on drugs,” Trump said. “You have to legalize drugs to win that war. You have to take the profit away from these drug czars.”

Who (or what) caused him to change his mind

Perhaps this latter course of action can be explained by his prostration and deferential abasement before the private prison-industrial-drug enforcement complex. He evidently doesn’t “connect the dots” and fully realize that the decades long War on Drugs is an integral part of the deep state which is trying to destroy his presidency.

Researchers Peter Dale Scott, (The American Deep State: Wall Street, Big Oil, and the Attack on U. S. Democracy and American War Machine: Deep Politics, the CIA Global Drug Connection, and the Road to Afghanistan) and Alfred W. McCoy, (The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade) have detailed the covert “deep state” reality of the power elite enmeshed within this extra-constitutional state apparatus enabled by the Federal Reserve and the Wall Street banksters.

Their belligerent interventionist foreign policy with the Third World since the end of World War II is exposed as narco-centric, behind the Cold War/War on Terror public facade or rationale.

Along with the multinational petroleum and weapons/intelligence industries of the military-industrial complex, the global narcotics trade is one the biggest businesses in the world.

It is fueled and enabled by the clandestine intersection of drug money, intelligence and money laundering on a vast scale by banks and financial institutions across the planet.

Researchers have connected the dots linking the “underworld” of organized crime (narcotics) to the “upperworld” of the establishment (Wall Street banks and CFR-connected corporations/foundations/media).  It is the superglue which binds this relationship together.  Interwoven within this corrupt nexus are the clandestine intelligence services, with ties to both “worlds.

Trump could have taken a bold step to end all this, to end the deep state fostering narcotics and corruption, the same deep state trying to destroy him.

Instead he appointed the buffoon Sessions as attorney general, and filled his administration with Wall Street banksters from Goldman Sachs.
