“You think our country’s so innocent?” Trump confounds left, right and “opposition” media

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator
 

You would think the latest comments from President Trump pointing out that the U.S. may not be so innocent, would have progressives and the hard-left wing of the Democratic Party cheering. 

There was a time when the anti-war movement and those who have held American foreign policy in contempt would be drooling over such an admission from the President.

But the reaction from both the left, the right, and the media has been quite something.

Watch as I take a look at a few examples of American foreign policy and the Trump derangement Syndrome infecting the left and the media who are making this all about Trump cozying up to Putin and Russia.

And frankly, the neoconservative wing of the GOP need to recognize they were soundly defeated in the primaries when an anti-war, non-interventionist Trump won, and established a new direction for the GOP on foreign policy.

This is why I like President Trump. He’s a pure populist and it’s refreshing that a Republican doesn’t feel bound by his party’s past positions on foreign policy that clearly failed when we look at the war in Iraq.

The problem is when you have a dishonest media acting as an opposition party rather than giving the public the news without any conjecture, the battle becomes even harder for Trump and his administration.

NONE of the “politically correct” are honest….no not one….not even to themselves. That is why they CANNOT be believed and MUST NOT be trusted.

Trump won the hearts of those who longed for a leader with genuine authentic presence. Being the POTUS the top dog imperial power, is a dirty thankless job, but somebody has to do it. Abdication of that responsibility, indeed the fall of the United States of America will not mark the end of the age of imperialism. And I dread to think what would take it’s place.

Hillarious Clinton and Obama are largely responsible for the creation of ISIS and the thousands of lives that have been lost in the Middle East in the last 5 years.
Don’t believe me . . . here’s what the folks that live there think . . .

“Aykol, Daily Sabah columnist Hilal Kaplan wrote in a Turkish-language commentary that “the American president who is responsible for destabilizing the seven banned Muslim nations was none other than former President Barack Obama. It was of course bad that American Muslims were in trouble, but what really mattered were ‘Muslims in our region.’”

Obama helped overthrow Libya’s leader Muamar Qadaffi and Egypt’s President Mubarak, and backed Syrian jihadists against the Assad government with just enough firepower to keep the civil war going without a hope of finishing it. The US allowed the Sunni extremists who formed ISIS to operate undisturbed in the hope of directing them against Assad.

The Obama administration’s dalliance with jihadists of various stripes helped throw the region into chaos, and contributed to the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria which has killed half a million civilians and displaced perhaps ten million. These problems turned up on Turkey’s doorstep, literally so in the case of the two million Syrian refugees now housed in Turkish refugee camps.
Turkey also suspects that the Obama administration gave aid and comfort to the military coup plotters of July 2016, who appeared inspired by the rogue Turkish cleric Fethullah Gülen. I doubt that Obama helped instigate the coup, but the Gülenists had some backing in the US intelligence community."

As an aside,

I noted that there are posts on RT apparently from someone who identifies himself has Trustin Judeau. It also has an avatar which is a Trudeau selfie.
So, aside from being on holidays all the time, does JUST TIN waste his time posting on website?

If it is JUSTIN BIN TRUDEAU posting, he does not have enough balls to be honest enough to use his real identity!

“Jay Kelly” is most likely a skinny, little left wing , pimply adolescent, sitting in his mother’s basement eating Fritos and tapping away on his lap top all day because he won’t or can’t get a job.

The deranged Left Wing, the Left Wing MSM along with Republican Establishment Elites including Bill OReilley cannot handle the truth and/or continue to hide the facts. Since before President Kennedy the USA has been taken over by foreign world banks and multi national corporation killers. Pearl Harbour, Viet Nam, the assassination of Kennedy, the Oklahoma City bombing, 911, the murder of Gadaffi ,the stand own order in Libya, the plethora of murders surrounding the Clintons, the recent murder of a DNC member about to expose the corruption within the DNC, the poisoning of Roger Stone, the list goes on and on and on where the CIA or some other US politician is behind the killing of innocents. There have been books written on the Clinton’s murderous crimes. And Oreilley says there are no killer politicians in the US?? The USA leads the pack in political murder and crimes and Putin kind of pales in comparison. Trump is absolutely correct.
Trump is about to change all that and this is why they want him dead very badly.

Obama reversed ( wet foot dry foot ) policy for Cuban refugees just before he left office
Last week Mexico sent back 91 Cubans back because of this , you can be assured that some of them will be killed

How come no leftard judge objected to this executive order and held it up to scrutiny
commented 2017-02-08 08:58:28 -0500
Trump is correct, Obama killed lots of people with drones and they were not all terrorists. Some of his victims were human shields some “collateral damage”. Yes, both Putin and Obama are killers. Whether the killings were justified is another question.

Jay Kelly you are so full of shit, no one believes anything you type troll,
commented 2017-02-08 08:08:26 -0500

commented 2017-02-08 07:43:45 -0500
Aw, isn’t that cute? Jay Kelly is pretending he’s an american patriot so he can stir the pot.
commented 2017-02-08 07:12:46 -0500
It’s no wonder Trump has raised the ire of both republicans and democrats. His uninhibited honesty is causing members from both camps to squirm. Indeed, this is what his grass root supporters probably like about the man despite his shortcomings.

Donald Trump accuses the United States of having blood on its hands and some commenters on here will defend him to the tilt.

The United States has a proud history. It should not be sullied.
commented 2017-02-08 01:21:28 -0500
It’s kind of funny when you think about it. For decades the regressives have been excoriating Western society in general and the US in particular for being evil. Thus the need for their ’Critical Theory" to bring down said society. Now all of a sudden they are aghast at Trump for admitting the uS has done some evil over the years.

Here is very good Bill Whittle video explaining the origins of the left’s narrative:

Jay Kelly – how did you become such an idiot? Get your head out of your ass & start a new life! You still haven’t come for coffee – you afraid of becoming conservative- a tized!?!? – grow up & listen to what you hear! Quit being a Libtards – grow a pair & become civilized & intelligent!
commented 2017-02-08 01:01:41 -0500
And we also have to face it, Jay Kelly, Sean Penson, and a couple other socialist trolls will never stop posting idiotic comments riddled of full out blatant lies and badly twisted truths. It is in their snake like nature.
commented 2017-02-08 00:58:26 -0500
We have to face it, the main stream media in the US and Canada will never grow a pair and do the right thing, report the news unbiased.
commented 2017-02-08 00:28:28 -0500
Drew, stop the idiocy. Trump claims that the United States, like Russia, is guilty of killings.
commented 2017-02-08 00:18:59 -0500
Jay Kelly sorry but he did not say that, now go support Hillary for going after a video.
commented 2017-02-07 23:42:17 -0500
Trump’s accusation that the United States is not innocent and has blood on its hands is heinous to both left and right. He is the President of the United States.

For the right he is claiming that the United States is no better than its enemies.

For the left he is claiming that he is not loyal to his own country.
commented 2017-02-07 23:32:16 -0500
The best thing about Trump is the fact that he is not a Politician. He is an intelligent man who loves his Country and just wants to set it back on its feet again. If the idiot left, worldwide, would realize this, then the whole world would be a better place.
When I see the reaction of the Left, toward Trump, in the UK, I feel ashamed to be born English.

Go for it Donald, if I was a Yank, I would have voted for you.
commented 2017-02-07 23:07:35 -0500
Someone – please contact Mark Levin about this – he said on his show that Trump said that America is not that “magnificent” and went on a stupid rant how disgusting that was. I think it is disgusting he can’t hear straight & goes on a stupid rant!
President Trump campaigned on “honesty” – & like Chris pointed out – this was straight up & honest.
You are right Bill, all nations have “sins” – but I find it difficult to catorgize what the POTUS said about “trying to get along” with Russia as a sin or evil!
At least the corruption in Russia is up front – very unlike the corruption of TruDope & his bum bud Obumer!!!
Hell, if I was 25 years younger I’d be emigrating to Russia – because the state of affairs in Canada right now is worse than that of post Russian Revolution!

The US was/is Imperialist, So is Russia and China – oddly these global imperialists form the war council of the UN. Spain,UK,Germany, France, Netherlands and Portugal the former global hegemonic imperialists now sit in the UN back benches like the UN’s idiot bastard children from a previous marriage.

Don’t go looking for white hats and black hats in the morass of transnational deep politics. There is no morality in monolithic power structures that field legions of deadly force to further its fortunes.
