President Trump Warns Ominously: "It's The Calm Before The Storm"

Tyler Durden's picture

During a dinner with military leaders tonight, President Trump gave an ominous warning seemingly out of the blue: "You guys know what this represents? Maybe it's the calm before the storm," he said: "It could be the calm... before... the storm."

A reporter quickly asked what the storm might be -"Is it Iran, ISIS, what's the storm?" to which he replied... "'ll find out."

The warning took place during a photo-call on occasion of a dinner hosted for US military leaders and their wives, with Donald and Melania attending. Mid-way through photos, the President said to reporters: “You know what this represents? Maybe it’s the calm before the storm” an ominous, loaded phrase considering the context and the present company.

Pressed for details, the President replied: “We have the world’s great military leader in this room […] you’ll see”.

As the following clip shows, it is hard to know if this bluster from the President to impress his audience, or a concerning sign of things to come...

Politico, which described the comments as cryptic and unprompted, was similarly clueless: “It was unclear what topics were discussed or what “storm” the president could be alluding to. But the White House summit with top national security officials comes as Trump weighs whether to decertify the Iran nuclear deal, a move that would hinder one of former President Barack Obama’s key diplomatic achievements.”

The full transcript, courtesy of a White House correspondent, was the following:

Good evening from your substitute pooler. Around 7:10 PM, after a travel/photo lid was called, White House staff hastily assembled the pool to cover a photo spray with military leaders and their spouses before a dinner with POTUS and FLOTUS.


POTUS made no news, but he did offer some cryptic remarks to the press corps.


Pool was led into the State Dining Room at 7:18 PM. A five-piece Marine Corps band positioned in the entrance hall played classical music. It was a piece of music your uncultured pooler did not recognize.


POTUS and FLOTUS stood side-by-side in the middle of more than a dozen couples who were lined up for an official photo. CJCS Dunford and his wife stood to their left. An unidentified military leader and his wife stood to POTUS' right.


"Tell us when youre ready," POTUS told the photographer. "Be careful, dont push.


"Our faces are tired," one of the spouses joked.


A couple of seconds later, POTUS pointed around the room and asked members of the pool, "you guys know what this represents?"


"Tell us," one reporter responded.


"Maybe its the calm before the storm," POTUS replied.


Whats the storm? another reporter asked. "On Iran? On ISIS? On what?


"We have the worlds great military people," POTUS replied. Thank you all for coming.


Kristen Welker of NBC News asked, what storm Mr. President?


"You'll find out," POTUS replied.


"Give us a hint on your Iran decision," another reporter asked.


POTUS said "thank you, everybody" and pool was ushered out of the room.

Twitter storm, that is. That's about the only thing the Deep State permit Trump to do nowadays, no?

Or perhaps he'll get Melania to do golden showers to get his ratings up?

President Trump Warns Ominously: "It's The Calm Before The Storm"

The Iran storm?? What do you expect;

Trump is a Jew.

In fact, Trump, Obama, Bush, and Clinton are all Jews;

That was the end of a Star Trek NG episode where Picard figures out how to communicate with some aliens who speak in metaphors based on their history and myths that make absolutely no sense to us.

Maybe there is an eerie similarity with someone we know of.

I have cut and pasted a section of the article for your entertainment:

Jews, Nazis, Ukraine and Hitler.

So, how is it that the Jews, Oleksander Turchinov, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Vitali Klitschko, etc, have teamed up with the Ukrainian Neo-Nazis to conduct a coup in the Ukraine. Why is the coup always called a Neo-Nazi coup but never a Jew coup (look it even rhymes). The Ukrainian coup was organized by Jews; they got the most important positions of power. So it was obviously a Jew coup. Then why the Neo-Nazis? Simply so the lying press could say "It was a Neo-Nazi coup." I think these Ukrainian Neo-Nazis are actually a "false flag" group of Jews.

Hitler was the same. Hitler was actually a Jew.

I have gathered yet more evidence from various web-sites and people, and it gets better & better. It is very interesting;

1) Hitler ordered the tanks to stop for 3 days near Dunkirk when only a short distance away. This allowed the entire British army and part of the French army to escape to Britain.

2) Hitler refused to take Gibraltar and turn the Mediterranean into a "German lake". There was nothing to stop the Germans from driving through Spain (their ally) and doing the job.

3) Hitler declared war on the United States.

4) Hitler refused to allow the tens of thousands of tons of weaponized nerve gas that the Germans had produced (at Dyhernfurth an der Oder) to be used. Over 500,000 artillery shells and about 100,000 bombs filled with nerve gas were found in their storage areas (mainly at Krappitz = Krapowice) at the end of the war.

5) Hitler refused to conquer Britain. After Dunkirk, Britain was totally defenseless.

6) Hitler refused to authorise the production of jet fighters. The Heinkel He 178 had its first successful flight in 1939, but the Jews Milch/Goering/Hitler showed no interest in it. The fighter version, the Heinkel He 280, was successfully demonstrated on April 5, 1941, but the Jews Milch/Goering/Hitler refused to put it into production. Hitler wasn't interested in a plane that could travel a couple of hundred miles per hour faster than the others. Same story with the Messerschmidt jets.

7) Jewish financiers gave billions to finance Hitler's rise to power.

8) Only the Nazi's attempted to kill Hitler. The Americans, British and Soviets made no attempt to kill Hitler. It is known that the British refused to allow a number of feasible assassination plans to proceed.

9) An article from "The Jewish World" tells us that Hitler, Goering and Himmler, all have close relatives living as religious Jews in Israel today. Namely,
Hitler's nephew's grandson,
Matthias Goering ? great-nephew of Hermann Goering, and
Katrin Himmler ? the great-niece of Heinreich Himmler.

10) In 1932 the Jewish genealogist Karl Friedrich von Frank published Hitler's family tree. It was pointed out (June 16, 1932, in the newspaper Neue Zurcher Zeitung) that the name Salomon, which came up repeatedly in Hitler's maternal line, was unlikely to be Aryan. On July 14, 1933, the newspaper Osterreichisches Abendblatt published photographs of graves of various Hitlers from Jewish cemeteries and mentioned a cookbook written in Hebrew by Rosalie Hitler. Also, a number of Jewish families, surnamed Hitler, officially applied to have their names changed due to Hitler's (supposed) antisemitism. [Hitler's Vienna by Brigitte Hamann]

Learn from the past to prevent war in the future.

end times prophet @ Oct 5, 2017 10:29 PM "Jesus was a Jew too. Whats your point?"

Jesus was Greek (like all the early Christians).

Matthew 16:18 "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter (Petros), and upon this rock (petros) I will build my church;"

The Greek word ??????/Petros (Peter) means rock.

This play on words only makes sense in Greek. So the speaker must have been speaking Greek.

And Christ is a Greek name, just like Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Jesus, are all Greek names.

And why did Paul write his gospel to the Hebrews in Greek?

Sorry guy, there were no jooz in the time of Christ, only Herbrews, and Christ was not likely a Hebrew either.


Look it up the, Kazarians calling themselves jooz and claiming to be "The Chosen Ones" created themselves about 700 AD and don't have a drop of Hebrew blood amoung therm.  The muzzies are of the same lot, total frauds both of them.


So whether Christ was a Greek is irrelavant, he may have been, who really cares...

TuPhat's picture

Most of the new testament was written in Greek.   A lot of non Greek people spoke greek in those days.  It was a common language.  You are full of crap on every subject you post on.

svayambhu108's picture

Makes sense in Latin too, and if Jesus was Roman makes sense how the Gospel absolves the bloody Romans but condamned the Jews who at that time were at war with the Romans.

If a Mesiah would apear in Iran or North Korea and would side with US and be against his place, that piece of religion who do you think would serve who do you think would be behind it.

Greek was the lingua franca, the language of commerce.

Christ and the apostles spoke Hebrew and Aramaic, two similar languages that share an alphabet. Naturally, the New Testament was originally in Greek because no one outside of Israel spoke Hebrew except Hebrew emigrants, while practically everyone around the Med could speak Greek.

The epistle to the Hebrews contgains some evidence of being translated from Hebrew to Greek.

The Aramaic for rock is Cephas, a name associated with Peter. Caiaphas is a variant.

My research suggest that all wars are pre-determined, pre-planned, and stage-managed for the benefit of the Powers That Were (PTW). Hitler and other "world leaders" acted the way they did because that was in their script.

Manthong's picture

He said he doesn’t like to be predictable but most of us out here do not appreciate the constant hyperbole and would prefer not to be surprised so often with reversals to the platform he ran on.


HardAssets's picture

It all gets so damn sickening. It's supposed to be 'government of the people, by the people' - - yet most of it is conducted in secret without our knowledge or consent.
I don't find Trump's comment amusing at all. No more than Pelosi's 'you'll have to pass the bill in order to read it' garbage.

ergatz: What STORM?

A false flag, most likely next summer to distracted the people that voted for him from the real issues that he won’t deliver, and to minimize the republicans loses at the 2018 election.


GreatUncle's picture

Won't deliver or can't deliver?

If I was worth a few million how could I pass any legislation / law etc. to make myself poorer.

Upon that point you have now realised the end consequence of greed and what it will mean for humanity.

To maintain all that has been stolen and continue to accrue more will require slave societies.

How you create or mold them is irrelevant, working for a minimum wage or at no cost, no future, no home like the snowflakes living at home, etc. etc. etc.

*** Can't deliver ***

I voted for him but he has been playing so much with the alligators he has forgotten he promised to drain the swamp, Hillary is not in jail yet, he has an interventionist foreign policy now and just about the only people who are gone are the people who should have stayed.

I am in 100% agreement.  While I still had some hope for him, I have come to realize that Eisenhower was completely correct.  To only conceive how much greater the Deep State and Shadow Goverment control the reins than 60 years ago leaves me with great despair that we are beyond hope.  He could still make amends by giving Ron Paul a meaningful position to either neuter the IRS or the FED.  I won't hold my breath, however.

The people that are gone, for the most part, are doing more outsider then in. Watch Bannon and Gorka continue the fight, draining the swamp, bringing in Alabama Moore after Moore, slowly getting rid of the piece of shit Republican establishment. Trump knows he has to play dumb to that and pretend Bannon is someone he doesnt see eye to eye with. I mean what the fuck would you do? Sign executive order after order to push the campaign through? You think its Trumps fault? He has been dealing with the agruably the most difficult first 9 months then any other President since the Civil War. The  sick liberal opposition, the propaganda, the MSM, Antifa, Congress, Oh yeah that Russia thing, NK, debt ceiling, Obamacare, immigration, ISIS, Syria, Iran, illegal immigrants, Hollywood, hurricanes, mass shooting, and more. And nearly everyone except the people who put him in office are completely against him and will stop at nothing to make sure he gets NOTHING DONE. What the fuck would you do? People that post garbage like this, and theres a fair amount here, are armchair Presidents who obviously do not have the mental capacity to objectively look at a situation that is far bigger and more complicated then anything they will ever personally face in life. Trump is one tough mother fucker, and smart. Id love to here the brilliant responses and strategies that would alter the course of America  and MAGA based on REALITY. Bunch of negative unrealistic simpletons. Get your shit together. Trump is the ONLY one who would possibly do anything to truly benefit this country since Kennedy. Perhaps Reagan. Remember it, work with it, do what you can in your community, and lets get these cuck Republicans out of the swamp. He cant do it himself. Although, as I said above, he and Bannon will try.
