Trump Takes Aim At The Global Elite

Tyler Durden's picture

Donald Trump has always framed his candidacy as providing the average American with an opportunity to vote for an outsider, someone not already part of the traditional political machine. Immediately following Brexit, we asked whether or not this was Trump's opportunity to seize the momentum and use the referendum result as an example of what can be done if the people stand up against the global elites.

It turned out that Trump wasted no time in making sure that the people of America understood that what had been done in the UK can be done in the United States. 

Recall from Trump's statement immediately following Brexit:

Statement Regarding British Referendum on E.U. Membership


The people of the United Kingdom have exercised the sacred right of all free peoples. They have declared their independence from the European Union, and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy. A Trump Administration pledges to strengthen our ties with a free and independent Britain, deepening our bonds in commerce, culture and mutual defense. The whole world is more peaceful and stable when our two countries – and our two peoples – are united together, as they will be under a Trump Administration.


Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies that put our citizens first. They will have the chance to reject today’s rule by the global elite, and to embrace real change that delivers a government of, by and for the people. I hope America is watching, it will soon be time to believe in America again.

We were curious as to how framing the debate as a fight against the elites would play out for Trump, but if the first Rasmussen poll after the Brexit result is any indication, the tide could be turning for Trump. As we reported, Trump jumped out to a four point lead over Hillary Clinton in the latest Rasmussen poll last week, after being behind prior to that.

Of course none of this has been lost on The Donald, and as The Hill points out, Trump is ramping up efforts to continue the framing of his candidacy as a fight against the global elite. Trump is stepping up the rhetoric around the economy being rigged by the media and corporate elites, and is folding Hillary Clinton into the mix seamlessly. In some cases, Trump is even putting himself in direct conflict with big business in Washington, something that will presumably only help with the voters looking for a change from the status quo.

As The Hill explains

In a series of economic speeches, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has railed against the forces of globalization, arguing that changes in the economy have betrayed workers and wiped out the middle class.


At the center of the "rigged economy," Trump argues, are "powerful corporations, media elites and political dynasties" and his likely general election opponent, Hillary Clinton.


"Hillary Clinton and her friends in global finance want to scare America into thinking small — and they want to scare the American people out of voting for a better future," Trump said Tuesday in a speech near Pittsburgh.


I want you to imagine how much better our future can be if we declare independence from the elites who've led us to one financial and foreign policy disaster after another.


Trump’s rhetoric is unusual for a presumptive Republican nominee for president, placing him in direct conflict with Washington business groups who have traditionally been allies of the GOP.

To be sure, Trump has gotten the attention of those that have been targeted by his speech. Some, such as US Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas Donohue, have taken the time to respond directly. In an op-ed in The Washington Post, Donohue said "Let's get one thing straight - ripping up our trade agreements, as presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump suggests, and raising a tariff wall around the US economy wouldn't bring those jobs home."

Even former George W. Bush administration official Tony Fratto has called Trump's attacks "destructive and wrong-headed", adding "To trash TPP the way he does is really upsetting. He's not serious at all, and he's only interested in selling false promises."

Of course that type of response is exactly what Trump wants, so that the dialogue can be furthered. Trump responded by saying "The US Chamber of Commerce is totally controlled by the special interest groups. They want to have TPP, one of the worst deals, it will be the worst deal since NAFTA." 

Trump takes all of the outcry from the establishment and uses it as a way to further drive home his point that the system is rigged and the elites must be defeated in order to change it - an idea that whether or not one likes Donald Trump, is accurate.

"The people who rigged the system are supporting Hillary Clinton because they know as long as she is in charge nothing will ever change. The inner cities will remain poor. The factories will remain closed. The borders will remain open. The special interests will remain firmly in control. I want you to imagine how much better our future can be if we declare independence from the elites who've led us to one financial and foreign policy disaster after another." Trump said.

Rather surprisingly, Trump is even starting to publicly win over some Republicans who have been on the fence about the the GOP candidate for quite some time, such as Newt Gingrich and Paul Ryan.

From The Hill

While few other Republicans have used such language, anti-trade sentiment is running high in both parties. Should Trump win the White House on such a message, it could reshape the Republican Party, which has historically supported free trade.


Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), who is reportedly a front-runner to be Trump’s running mate, did an about-face on trade this week, endorsing Trump’s approach.


I basically agree with Trump’s speech on trade,” Gingrich wrote to Politico.


Meanwhile, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who at first declined to endorse Trump after he won the party's nomination, has become increasingly critical of the TPP, saying it should be renegotiated.


Ryan this week said he’s on the same page with Trump when it comes to trade deals.


"What I have heard from him is that we need to engage, that we need to have very good trade agreements that are good for America. And I agree with that."

* * *

One thing is clear, whether or not everyone will agree with what is said, Trump is at least speaking more directly than most politicians do, and by pointing out the fact that everything is rigged, Trump has struck a common ground with many Americans who struggle each day just to make ends meet. Whether the strategy of fighting back against the political machine will work or not remains to be seen, but to his credit, Trump isn't backing down, even when the establishment unites and tries to fight back.

MillionDollarBonus_'s picture

Donald Trump represents a rejection of economics, political expertise and science, in favor of sensationalism and quaint notions of populism. It's time for world leaders to stand up to the ignorance of the masses and take charge of the global economy. Democratic rights are granted by those in power, but when those rights are abused by the common man, it is up to the political, economic and social elite to take back control and steer society toward the common good. Today's article at the Accredited Times urges world leaders to take charge of the political process and defend decades of progress from populist uprisings.

Pulled from Washington's blog;

"People should look closely at the pictures from Trump’s third wedding. Hillary Clinton is in the front pew of the church. Hillary, Bill, Trump and Melania are shown embracing at Trump’s estate afterwards during the reception. These people are part of the same elite circle. They represent the same financial interests. They work for the same empire. They have grown rich from the system. The words they shout back and forth during political campaigns are meaningless. Trump or Clinton will deliver the same political result. They will serve, like Obama, corporate and military power. And if they were not willing to serve these centers of power they would not be allowed to run. Their job is to manufacture hope during election campaigns that ultimately end in betrayal. "

I would say there is a 50% chance you are right.

What I am counting on is Trump's ego, the size of Jupiter, does that ego allow for screwing over the people?

Could that ego stand a 20% favorability after 4 years?  I don't think so, I think the ego will lead him to we the people, even if he is not currently in that direction.

Let's see...if it's impossible for anyone to upset the system without balls the size of washtubs and a few billion dollars to back up the attempt, but no one can amass a few billion dollars without schmoozing with the people who can make or break you, let's by all means reject the one guy in the known universe that has cleared the bar precisely because he has done what it takes to find himself in that unique position.

Then he sends a hex telegram and you can't decipher it???

Dancing Disraeli's picture

You are correct, sir.  I think what motivates Trump's naysayers here is the instinctive need to psychologically protect themselves from once again getting their hopes up only to watch their newly elected representatives immediately and gleefully fuck them over.  It's emotionally safer to just give up, even though Trump, due to his great wealth, is in the unique position of not needing anyone elses money, making him the only non-compromised candidate I have ever witnessed.  I'm all in.

As far as I know, DT has never been to a Bilderberg, CFR, etc meeting. He is a lone wolf.

His interest no doubt is singular as to preserve family/wealth ... but IMO, his interest is also aligned with the common man becasue that is his customers at his properties and hotels.

The common man is under assualt from every angle and he sees that, that threatens everything he has built.

He is rich but on the "Outside of the circle".

I believe that MillionDollarBous_ operates like Stephen Colbert.

It takes quite a macabre sense of humour to appreciate that.

Tragically, the "elites" probably will "take matters into their own hands" by having Trump assassinated.

The assassination of politicians that could not otherwise be bribed or intimidated to agree to act as puppets for the deep state shadow government has been the main back-up method to ensure that deep state shadow government continues to be able to dominate the publicly apparent government. Civilization has always been based upon being able to back up lies with violence. The prodigious progress in physical science has enabled more integrated systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, to grow at about an exponential rate. The previous systems of paper money frauds, backed by gunpowder weapons, have rapidly, within the life time of those still alive today, become globalized electronic monkey money frauds, backed by the threat of force from apes with atomic bombs. HOWEVER, at the same time, there has been NO significant progress in political science.

Human societies still operate like groups of monkeys and apes, which are dominated by their biggest bullies. The development of civilization has primarily been the development of the biggest bullies' bullshit social stories. The most important of those have become the ways that public governments enforce frauds by private banks, which are legally allowed to make the public "money" supplies out of nothing as debts. That kind of legalized counterfeiting has been the primary source of the "wealth" of the plutocrats, which has enabled their runaway facist plutocracy juggernaut to grow at an exponential rate. HOWEVER, ENFORCING FRAUDS NEVER STOPS THOSE FROM STILL BEING FUNDAMENTALLY FRAUDULENT. THEREFORE, CIVILIZATION BASED UPON BEING ABLE TO ENFORCE FRAUDS BECOMES EXPONENTIALLY MORE FRAUDULENT.

I find it politically impossible to imagine how any one flesh and blood individual, like Donald Trump, could possibly prevail against the degree to which civilization has become runaway criminal insanities, due to the excessive successfulness of the applications of the methods of organized crime through the vicious spirals of political funding enforcing frauds, the most important manifestations of which have been the occassional assassinations of those successful politicians who could not otherwise be bribed or intimidated by the biggest gangsters, who are primarily the international banksters.

At the present time, it is TOO POLITICALLY IMPOSSIBLE for enough people to go through enough profound paradigm shifts in the ways that they perceive the world, by continuing to take almost completely for granted that they are "thinking," and so, "commicating" through using the biggest bullies' bullshit languages, which have become as absurdly backwards as possible, in every way, including through the most profound perversions of the dominate philosophy of science, which emerged out a long series of compromises with the biggest bullies' bullshit world views.

The ruling classes do not deserve to be labeled as the "elites." They were actually only the best at backing up their lies with violence. With regard to nothing else could they be considered to be the "elites." Since all of the established sociopolitical systems are based upon enforcing frauds, which have become exponentially more fraudulent, the ruling classes have become increasing psychotic psychopaths, while those they ruled over have become the matching bookends to the same systems, by becoming increasingly impotent political idiots.

There is almost nothing but the central core of organized crime (globalized "elites" effectively controlling national governments) surrounded layers of controlled opposition groups. Those groups are also run by professional liars and immaculate hypocrites, because that bogus "opposition" stays within taking for granted their uses of the biggest bullies' dominate natural languages and philosophy of science, despite all of that becoming as absurdly backward as humanly possible, because of the ways that the excessive successfulness of enforcing frauds has become exponentially increasing fraudulence. It is within that context that one has to have a sufficiently macabre sense of humour to appreciate the statements made by MillionDollarBonus_:

"It's time for world leaders to stand up to the ignorance of the masses and take charge of the global economy."

"World leaders" ALREADY have taken charge of the global economy. It is ALREADY based upon enforcing frauds, becoming exponentially more fraudulent. It was within that context that the ruling classes were able to dominate sociopolitical systems, such as the public schools and mass media, in order to more  and more scientifically brainwash the vast majority of people into becoming the "ignorant masses."  We are all drowning in the bullshit-based language of DUALITIES, false fundamental dichotomies, and the related impossible ideals. What "we should" be doing is to start using more UNITARY MECHANISMS in order to better understand human beings and civilization as manifestation of general energy systems, which live by being entropic pumps of environmental energy flows. However, in order to do that, "we should" go through series of intellectual scientific revolutions, and profound paradigm shifts, in order to recognize the degree to which "we" are already drowning in the almost totally triumphant bullshit which has been promoted by the biggest bullies, for generation after generation, after generation, throughout human history. 

Indeed, that certainly goes back many, many millions of years into the past, for as long as social animals, such as monkeys and apes, were able to beat each other up, and thereby some control others through those means. Civilization was driven by the history of warfare, which was the development of organized crime on larger and larger scales. Successful warfare was based upon deceits and treacheries, which then morphed to become successful finance based upon enforcing frauds ... HOWEVER, the excessive successfulness of enforcing frauds has driven civilization as a whole to become exponentially more fraudulent, and therefore exponentially more psychotic. Hence, "the political, economic and social elite" have become exponentially more psychotic psychopaths,  while the "ignorant masses" have become exponentially more impotent political idiots.

The so-called "decades of progress" based upon enforcing frauds have actually been at least thousands of years of the development of being able to control civilization through backing up lies with violence, despite that violence never stopping those lies from still being false. Given the ways that almost everyone thinks and communicates about those problems by using the biggest bullies' bullshit languages and philosophical presumptions, which are as absurdly backwards as humanly possible, due to those artificial selection systems being driven by natural selection pressures to become most socially successful by becoming the most deceitful and fraudulent, it continues to be politically impossible to resolve the apparent dichotomies between the haves versus the have-nots.

The political economy in which that irreconciable social polarization is developing is almost totally based upon public governments enforcing frauds by private banks. Although the laws of nature do NOT stop working, and therefore, nothing that actually depends upon the laws of nature will stop working, there have developed intense paradoxes, as sets of consistent contradictions, that the only connections between human laws and natural laws are the abilities to back up legalized lies with legalized violence, which have primarily become the ways that public governments enforce frauds by private banks, such that the globalized political economy operates in ways which become exponentially more psychotic, in the sense that those fundamentally fraudulent financial accounting systems become more and more out of touch with relatively objective realities, since their social successfulness is based upon being able to continue to enforce frauds, which drives the ruling classes to become the best available professional liars and immaculate hypocrites, while that includes not only the central core of those systems, but also all the layers of the publicly significant "opposition" groups, who continue to be controlled by their using the biggest bullies' bullshit languages and philosophical presumptions to "think" with and "communicate" through.

Since human beings and civilization necessarily live as entropic pumps of environmental energy flows, they necessarily operate according to the principles and methods of organized crime, because the murder systems are necessarily the central controls of everything else. In particular, during recent Centuries, the international bankers became the best organized gangsters, the banksters, who were able to apply the methods of organized crime through the political processes, in order to make sure that the only successful and surviving politicians were their puppets, who would be voted for by enough of the masses of muppets.

IF Donald Trump becomes a genuinely successful and serious threat to the globalized ruling classes, then they will probably pay for some way to have him assassinated. Of course, that would merely be one of the symbolically most significant ways in which the ruling classes are generally engaged in starting more genocidal wars, as well as preparing to impose democidal martial law. Meanwhile, there are no publicly significant, genuine opposition groups, which I am aware of, that are not actually reactionary revolutionaries, attempting to "lead" the masses of morons in absurdly backward ways, because we have already, metaphorically speaking, gone beyond the event horizon of a social black hole of bullshit.

It is a false fundamental dichotomy to separate the "elites" from the "ignorant masses" or the haves from the have nots. There is nothing but the dynamic equilibria between different systems of more or less organized lies operating robberies. As soon as we perceive and define human beings as separate from their environment and each other, then they necessarily live as gangs of robbers, and so, the death controls are the central controls, that back up the debt controls, through combined money/murder systems. The "elites" were the best organized gangs of robbers, which effectively controlled the biggest gangs of robbers, which were governments, in order that the enforcement of frauds would become symbolic robberies. In that context, the "ignorant masses" were less well organized gangs of robbers.

The crucial corollary of civilization operating through the principles and methods of organized crime have become that the biggest and best organized gangs of criminals (bankster dominated governments) were able to promote their bullshit as the overwhelmingly dominate social stories, including the ways that they were able to dominate the apparent "opposition" to them, so that was controlled "opposition," which continued to stay within the same overall bullshit-based frames of reference, and therefore, promote bogus "solutions" based upon impossible ideals, which always backfire badly, and cause the opposite to happen in the real world, because those impossible ideals misunderstand the actual mechanisms of how things work in the most absurdly backward ways possible.

It is barely possible to exaggerate the degree to which civilization is controlled by the triumphant applications of the methods of organized crime, to the degree to which almost everyone either deliberately ignores or misunderstands that in the most absurdly backward ways possible. But nevertheless, that IS the way things are, and furthermore, that is consistent with the laws of nature, inasmuch as artificial selection systems were driven to develop by natural selection pressures. Within that overall context, IF any sufficiently successful politician became a serious threat to the globalized deep state shadow governments, THEN it becomes proportionately probable that such a politician would be discredited or destroyed. My current hunch (assuming that Trump really means what he says, rather than that is somehow just another level of trick) is that is what is likely going to happen to Donald Trump, which will then make sure the devolution into social insanities is driven to continue to get worse, faster ...

After all, consider what happened to President Kennedy: 

JFK to 911 Everything Is A Rich Man’s Trick

Then reconsider one of President Kennedy's statements:

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."

-- John F. Kennedy

Peaceful revolutions ARE impossible.

& Violent revolutions ARE inevitable.


By the way, that video which I linked above regarding JFK to 9/11 was another illustration of the ways that controlled opposition thinks. It presents an abundance of relatively good analysis based upon relative dichotomies, but then tends to collapse back into the bullshit of bogus "solutions" based upon false fundamental dichotomies and the related impossible ideals.

That video correctly demonstrates that organized crime and the CIA blend at the top of the social pyramid systems. Anyone who examines the history of the CIA will recognize that it was originally created by Wall Street lawyers, and therefore, the pyramidion people in the CIA mostly work for the international banksters, and thus, the top levels of the CIA blend into the top levels of other gangs of organized criminals. Indeed, for all practical purposes the government of the USA is dominated by the international banksters. (Anyone who doubts those central social facts about central banks, such as the Federal Reserve Board, could spend several hundred hours to watch some Excellent Videos on Money Systems in order to dispel those doubts.) Since society is necessarily dominated by the best organized gangs of criminals, they deliberately engage in promoting more organized crime, because that finally ends up spiralling around to benefit them, such as demonstrated by most of the egregious episodes of human history, with the more recent series of the War on Drugs seguing into the War on Terror demonstrating how the best organized gangs of criminals effectively dominate governments, in order to make sure that there are actually driven to become ever more organized crimes, cascading through fractal patterns of organized crimes, through nested toroidal vortices of organized crimes.

Too bad, so sad, since:

Trump is the guy for legalization supporters

By Mark Wild, March 25, 2016.

"... If you want the candidate with the highest probability of ensuring marijuana will be legal across the country, Donald Trump is your best option. I know for many of you this news might be rather hard to digest. ... his pro-marijuana stance surpasses that of any other candidate in the field. ... if Donald Trump’s words are to be believed as truth, then it’s clear that Donald Trump will be the biggest proponent for the legalization of marijuana in our country’s history."


Enforcing frauds falls into the metaphorical black hole of apparently infinite tunnels of frauds, which are enforced in ways which enable a few to engage in spectacularly successful symbolic robberies, and hence, are reinforced strongly to continue to promote the biggest bullies' bullshit world view, in order to continue to personally benefit from doing that, despite that doing so drives civilization as a whole towards becoming exponentially more psychotic and criminally insane. Indeed, in light of the difficulties with respect to attempting to fathom the apparently infinite tunnels of deceits and frauds that control civilization, consider this abstract mathematical presentation, in light of what it means when frauds enable more frauds:

From Brandon's recent article which I believe may have been posted in ZH. Sovereignty Is The Villain Brexit Aftermath - Here’s What Will Happen Next by Brandon Smith

In my article 'Brexit: Global Trigger Event, Fake Out Or Something Else?', published before the U.K. referendum vote, I outlined numerous…

As I originally stated in my prediction article:

“…the failure of the EU does not necessarily mean a failure for the internationalists. For groups of globalists that promote an ideology of Fabian Socialism, a breakdown of the EU, whether partial or total, can be used as leverage for a larger and more centralized global power structure in the long term. Mark my words, when the system comes crashing down (whether after the Brexit or after another trigger event), internationalists will say that the EU failed not because it was centralized, but because it was not centralized ENOUGH.”

“If the Brexit succeeds, the globalists can allow the market systems they have been inflating for years to finally crash (at the speed they choose). They can then blame those dastardly “far-Right extremists” in the U.K. for triggering a domino effect within the global financial system, conveniently scapegoating British conservatives, moderates and sovereigns for a breakdown that was going to happen eventually anyway. Their solution will once again be to argue for the end of “barbaric” conservative principles and install complete centralization and socialism as the cure.”

"EU nations that they should not worry about seeking their own referendums, because the central banks will save the day if they do. More referendums mean exponential crisis in equities.  So, markets will crash if the central banks don't act, and they will crash if central banks do act."

"If Hillary Clinton, a clear establishment puppet, is the chosen one, and markets crash after her inauguration, then the establishment gets the blame.  However, if Trump becomes president, and markets crash, then conservative and freedom movements get the blame."

Those who read my articles regularly know that I do not trust Trump and that I think his behavior signals that he is controlled opposition, but this is really beside the point.  Even if Trump is a legitimate anti-establishment conservative, his entry into the Oval Office will seal the deal on the economic collapse, and will serve the globalists well.  The international banks need only pull the plug on any remaining life support to the existing market system and allow it to fully implode, all while blaming Trump and his conservative supporters.

indygo55's picture

It is very posible that Trump is controlled opposition. But at the end of the day we get the choice of one or the other. Hillary is a guaranteed status quo candidate and Trump has a chance of SOME independence although he has some pretty powerfull friends that are just behind the curtain:




r101958's picture

I agree that he definitely has some powerful friends. I can also surmise that those powerful friends don't own him. Very unlike Shrillary; her powerful friends definitely own her.

Socratic Dog's picture

You (and Brandon) are making a very big assumption, that the elites will be able to manage, and keep control in, a crash.  I feel no such confidence.  We live in a time where a few percentage points off the Dow, for a few days, is considered the crash to end all crashes.  Like last week.  I've got news for you.  That wasn't a crash.  If you blinked, you missed it.

I like the way Orlov models collapse.  The first stage is financial armagedon.  That needs a lot more than what we saw last week.  What happened in 2008/2009 is closer.  But so long as it is only financial in nature, it ain't that big a deal.  When the financial crash precipitates turmoil and collapse in the commercial system, then it becomes real.  That's when trade freezes, when the food trucks and the gas tankers stop running.  I don't know how close we were in 2008, but I suspect we were on the brink of it.

I had my eyes opened 20 years ago when I drove east from LA one night into the Arizona desert.  Interstate 10 heading west, to LA, was one long line of trucks, 60 mph,  100 yards between them, non stop all night long.  It forced you to think what would happen if those trucks stopped running.  Well, in commercial collapse, those trucks stop.  Not to mention the bulk container vessels that supply them.  In 24 hours the supermarkets are empty, and the gas you have in your tank is the last you're going to get.  After a while the electric grid goes down, followed by the water supply.  The 20 mllion-odd people in the LA Basin have a bit of a problem, which becomes a problem for everyone else.

For how well the elites deal with it we have examples we can extrapolate from.  Best, to my mind, is Katrina.  They lost control in New Orleans after a bit of a storm.  One city, and they were overwhelmed.  How well do you think they'd do with full-scale commercial collapse, nationwide, worldwide and with no outsiders to come to the rescue?  Not too well, is my guess.

In trying to get total control, I think the elites are going to lose all control.  Hedge accordingly.

SWRichmond's picture

Agree with nearly everything.  There is no control possible.  Your observation about Katrina is correct.  These people are ruthless, greedy and sociopathic but otherwise incompetent.  Read about Hitler's personal direction of the war, and how that turned out.

As for the LA basin, I am not so sure I care.  The cities are worse than useless, they are economic drags and they are in for an inevitable "realigment", one is necessary and will be ugly, but huge cities have outlived their usefulness and are no longer viable.

Imagine 20 million people lumped into a few hundred square miles or so and with no electrical power or running water.

As an interesting side issue, how are the elites going to defend their bunkers against an onslaught like that?  It's a fool's errand.  Though I am sure lots of contractors are happy to take lots of money selling the idea to rich morons lost in their unreality.

As another interesting side issue imagine spending time in a bunker run by a sociopath.  No thank you, I am certain that I will like it better out here.

Jews allow no opposition. The US Congress votes unanimously in favor of Israel every time. The Jewish produced movies will always use the same formula, there is no deviation from the script. White hero, darky love interest, white bad guy, wise darky or Jew tries to save the day. Life under Jewish control is a bore. Never any deviation.

This is simply not allowed.

We have no way of knowing if his words are just rhetoric, because he has no political history.

Actions speak louder and all that...

At this point, who wouldn't be skeptical...But, I don't think that the things Trump has built reveal a psychopath:

Whereas, what Hillary has done should reduce all of humanity to tears:

Then, there's Bill Clinton, On 9 June 1998, US President Bill Clinton declared a "national emergency" (state of emergency) due to the "unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States" imposed by Yugoslavia and Serbia over the Kosovo War:
