Justin: Yeah, Trump doesn’t follow any sort of playbook. So, what do you think about what he’s accomplished with North Korea?
Doug: I think he needs to be complimented for reaching out to baby Kim and establishing a personal relationship with him. It’s very interesting, and highly disturbing, that the Deep State called this outreach treasonous and dangerous. It shows how insane these Beltway creatures have become.
I mean it’s a good idea for him to be personally friendly with the head of an antagonistic power. It reduces the chance of war. That’s absolutely true for what he’s doing with Putin as well. Trump is to be congratulated for disregarding the media, the talking heads, academics, and State Department bureaucrats. Horrible people, captured by bad ideas.
I’ve read things that these morons have written. They’re saying he gave away the store. They’re crazy. They’re proof there actually is a clinical condition called TDS, Trump Derangement Syndrome.
For one thing Russia is a complete non-threat. It’s a gas station with an attached gun store in the middle of a wheat field. Their economy is smaller than Florida’s. They’re not a threat to anybody—alcoholism is rampant, the Russian population is in collapse, and they’re being undermined by massive Mohammedan migration from the Stans to Russia’s south.
Sure, they have nuclear weapons. So, it’s a good idea to be friendly with the Russians, if only because of that. But Putin and Russia are not a danger in any way whatsoever. Including a few guys spending $100,000 on Facebook to influence the 2016 election.
Justin: So, what do you think of the narrative that Trump’s a Russian asset?
Doug: It’s ridiculous. Everything that the media’s saying about Trump and Russia is completely counterfactual. There’s no evidence for this at all. Is it possible that they taped him doing naughty things with local working girls when he visited? Of course. That’s the type of things all governments, including our own, do as a matter of policy. Does that compromise him? No. It’s well known he’s always been a ladies man, as was JFK. But he’s never been accused of multiple sex crimes, as has Clinton.
Trump is a nationalist. It would run against Trump’s psychology to purposely act against US interests. It’s crazy. It tells me that the Democratic party is completely unhinged. They’re watching a different movie than the real world.
Still, I respect the Democrats much more than the Republicans. By that I mean the Democrats say all sorts of crazy things, but they believe them. They’re sincere. They’re not hypocrites.
Republicans, on the other hand, say they believe in free markets, freedom, and all sorts of intelligent things. But they don’t believe in any of this stuff. They’re completely insincere. Disgusting hypocrites. And everybody hates a hypocrite.
So, take your choice: crazy and sincere or somewhat rational sounding and insincere.
Justin: So, you approve of how Trump’s dealt with Russia and North Korea? And what about how he’s dealt with our allies, specifically in Europe?
Doug: I like the way Trump is handling the European leaders, all of whom are nothing-nobody socialist bureaucrats. Unworthy people run all these western European countries. He’s actually treating them with more respect than they deserve. They’re not real allies. They’re just Rent-an-allies, and very costly ones.
Justin: What about Trump’s suggestion that other European countries should kick in more for defense spending?
Doug: It’s one of Trump’s real problems. The U.S. is already bankrupt and sinking deeper into debt.
He shouldn’t be asking Europeans to raise defense spending. That’s asking for trouble. It’s going to make things worse for everybody.
Why, with their history of constant wars, should Europe be encouraged to become more militaristic? Who are they trying to defend themselves against? Not the Russians. They aren’t going to attack. Nobody’s going to attack Europe, including the Chinese.
These aren’t the days of the Roman Empire where warfare was a profitable venture, because after you won you got to enslave the men and steal the women, gold, cattle, and artwork, and take everything back to Rome. Economies don’t work that way anymore.
Today, warfare is strictly a money-losing and capital-destroying enterprise. So, it’s foolish for Trump to ask them to raise defense spending. It’s counterproductive. It will only provoke the Russians and Chinese.
Instead, we should be talking about disbanding the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). It serves no useful purpose. It should have been disbanded 25 years ago. NATO is proof of how it’s almost impossible to get rid of a bureaucracy—no matter how worthless and dysfunctional.
Instead of asking them to raise their spending, he should radically cut US military spending. And by “radically,” I mean 50% for openers and then 50% again.
This is a huge mistake on his part. But my biggest worry with Trump is the economy. The US is long overdue for a very serious collapse. And the next crash will be much worse than what we had in 2008. And I’m afraid it will happen on his watch.
