The Economist Goes There (Again)

After a few months off from lambasting President Trump on the cover, Economist publisher, Lynn Forrester de Rothschild, has decided now is the time to go after him again...


As a reminder, it was just February when The Economist turned the fearmongery amplifier to '11' in its latest op-ed describing the 'insurgency in The White House'.

Washington is in the grip of a revolution, The Economist begins...

The bleak cadence of last month’s inauguration was still in the air when Donald Trump lobbed the first Molotov cocktail of policies and executive orders against the capital’s brilliant-white porticos. He has not stopped...


...In politics chaos normally leads to failure. With Mr Trump, chaos seems to be part of the plan. Promises that sounded like hyperbole in the campaign now amount to a deadly serious revolt aimed at shaking up Washington and the world.


To understand Mr Trump’s insurgency, start with the uses of outrage. In a divided America, where the other side is not just mistaken but malign, conflict is a political asset. The more Mr Trump used his stump speeches to offend polite opinion, the more his supporters were convinced that he really would evict the treacherous, greedy elite from their Washington salons.


His grenade-chuckers-in-chief, Stephen Bannon and Stephen Miller, have now carried that logic into government.




Americans who reject Mr Trump will, naturally, fear most for what he could do to their own country. They are right to worry, but they gain some protection from their institutions and the law. In the world at large, however, checks on Mr Trump are few. The consequences could be grave.


Without active American support and participation, the machinery of global co-operation could well fail...


If Mr Trump truly wants to put America First, his priority should be strengthening ties, not treating allies with contempt...


America’s allies must strive to preserve multilateral institutions for the day after Mr Trump, by bolstering their finances and limiting the strife within them. And they must plan for a world without American leadership.


A web of bilateralism and a jerry-rigged regionalism are palpably worse for America than the world Mr Trump inherited. It is not too late for him to conclude how much worse, to ditch his bomb-throwers and switch course. The world should hope for that outcome. But it must prepare for trouble.

Scared yet? You should be...

And then turned its attention back to the old Russia story...

For an American president to suggest that his own country is as murderous as Russia is unprecedented, wrong and a gift to Moscow’s propagandists. And for Mr Trump to think that Mr Putin has much to offer America is a miscalculation not just of Russian power and interests, but also of the value of what America might have to give up in return.

Warning ominously that...

The quest for a grand bargain with Mr Putin is delusional. No matter how great a negotiator Mr Trump is, no good deal is to be had. Indeed, an overlooked risk is that Mr Trump, double-crossed and thin-skinned, will end up presiding over a dangerous and destabilising falling-out with Mr Putin.


Better than either a bargain or a falling-out would be to work at the small things to improve America’s relations with Russia. This might include arms control and stopping Russian and American forces accidentally coming to blows. Congressional Republicans and his more sensible advisers, such as his secretaries of state and defence, should strive to convince Mr Trump of this. The alternative would be very bad indeed.

In case you're wondering if The Economist suggests any redeeming features, any 'fair and balanced' perspective of the new 'leader of the free world' - the answer is simple - no.

But then again - when your published - Lynn Forrester de Rothschild was a "loyal adoring pal" of Team Clinton...

What chance do you stand of getting anything other than trite scaremongering to maintain their narrative.

Finally we leave it to Ron Paul to sum things up perfectly...

"Americans don’t realize the extent of the media brainwashing to which they are subjected"

Talking about media propaganda, CNBC spent their entire day covering what ceo's had to say after resigning from Trump's council then they had to interrupt that to share a breaking news about an "incident" in Barcelona. Not an islamic terror attack but an "incident", that too after other news sites were reporting 13 dead bodies.13 dead bodies in one attack vs 1 dead in probably a decade. Pick your winner.

This bitch was up to her eyeballs in the Pizzagate scandal. She was pictured with Brock, hosting a party, and I think there was even a barefoot child in the corner of the photo.  They had to make that one disappear pretty quick.  You can just see the toes on the bottom left edge of the pic.… way, as if that isn't bad enough, that David Brock and James Alefantis were a couple...  It was then alleged that Alefantis was... A Rothschild. nose and cheek lines.  Shoulda got that rhinoplasty, Jimmy!And of course, his name, James Alefantis (roughly) = J'aime les enfants.  And also, Alefantis anagram = infant sale!

Can't we finally put this "Goebbels" canard to rest?  Goebbels had reality on his side, judea HAD declared war on Germany in 1933.  The ZOG MSM has no reality to back up its stories.  There was no Russian hacking.  No chemical weapons.  No WMD.  No R2P in libya.  To try to compare what Goebbels was doing with German propaganda to the mangnatude of todays lies is to completely miss the scale of what has been done.

That tweet from Wikileaks reminds me - wasn't Assange under rape investigation by Sweden for best part of a decade? The same sweden whose cabinet is full of  'rape capital of the world' trophies. The same sweden that has run out of homes for rapefugees and now is making them stay in castles and yachts while also sequestrating their citizen's second homes. The same sweden that doesnt give a dead rats ass about its women being raped.But you dare expose their masters and then they WILL come after you. Go Wikileaks!

  I'm thinking of suing the Economist.  When I wipe my ass with it the ink annoys my colon.  Aside from that it makes really good asswipe.

First among equals, Donald Trump makes his Humanity apparent to any open Patriot eye, Black, White, Yellow, Red, or Brown.We, the sovereign, God-fearing American "El-ectorate" made Mr. Trump Elect as president because he made it perfectly clear his enemy is the satanic ruling false-elite Fifth Column proven to have started the FedScam JFK ended, killed him and Dr. King to make us papal catspaw in Vietnam and to restore their money scheme, promotes illegal and Muslim immigration as an organized, politically and logistically supported army of pawns for invasion and conquest, and committed 9/11 to send us to false war as False Zion's golem; and to support "royal" Muslim buggery.Lynn Forrester de Rothschild, pedo homo Hillary's "good buddy," is a member of Satan's Organized Crime ruling false-elite we came to America in express covenant with God to escape.She knows the Fall of Babylon has arrived and is desperate, praise God.Apocalypse Now!Death for Treason

Twenty years ago I started reading the Economist for its balanced view of things and liked that it didn't have a byline.  Last fall I cancelled my membership after repeated stories on how great Clinton was and their endorsement (first time ever).  The Economist has fallen into the same grove as the rest of the media.  Good riddance!

I love Political cartoons. there is a website where you can look at a lot of newspaper cartoonist latest work. Yes, the pen is mightier than the sword.

Look around.  Likely your neighborhoods are quiet and peaceful, work place the same.  Stores and business, public transportation, schools, hospitals all operating in normallcy.    I think most of all this current "news" and strife is acutally minimal but blown up to make people think Donald Trump is destroying their world and they should act.   Trump and Congress need to pass some significiant legislation, taxes/healthcare, to get people refocused on reality.

I agree.  I live in a very "diverse" area, and nothing has changed.  A very safe, pleasant, comfortable neighborhood, full of working people and our families.I think it would be very nice if the President would propose, and Congress dispose, some significant legislation.  Even just an idea or two, once in a while, would be great.  But an actual idea, not just the now-standard "We're going to make it the best ever; you'll be very, happy believe me," bullshit.  The tax reform ideas I've heard have all been hearsay, and since they would have helped me (white, male, middle-aged, middle-class, homeowner, self-employed), I assume they've been completely forgotten about and abandoned by now.

Agree, best be well thought out, workable, smart, legislation. Just to throw something out there like the "we'll have to read it to see what's in it" crap won't work.  That would be just as damaging.  Just do what's right, best for the overall country and it's survival. And for once, put favors, politics and ego's, I'm not that naive....the assholes. '

Why dont you and Louganis get your fucking heads out your asses already.
Trump isnt going to ANYTHING to help you. He is no different than every single fugazi "President " since JFK. What dont you understand about Freemasonry? 33rd degree to be more precise... Its a big club, and we aint in it. Clinton, Trump, Rothschild, Sessions, Obama, Bush, etc etc etc.. ALL high ranking Freemasons. THEY play on the WORLD STAGE. I know its hard for MK Ultra'd victims to understand but perhaps you can seek the much needed help you deserve and stop deluding yourselves and your families as to the reality that you exist in. Maybe its Stockholm Syndrome.. But I digress. Time to start researching and TURN OFF FAUX NEWS.

40 Years ago I emjoyed the Econimist20 years ago I enjoyed  the economist.5 years ago I did not.IMHO Too much a neo-liberal mouthpiece.Had I changed? Probably -- no I hope so. Anyone who does not change is dead.Had the Economist changed? Beyond any of my recognition.

I disagree, apart from being lot more blatant they have not changed much since 1843. Try reading their older articles.What has changed is information flow from non-establishment sources.100 years ago you could not tell if the king was still alive, these days you even know what mortal disease the "next-president" Hillary has!
