As the Coup Against Trump Fails, the Threat Against His Life Rises
by Paul Craig Roberts
The use of the presstitute media to deny Trump the Republican presidential nomination failed.
The use of the presstitute media to deny Trump victory in the presidential election failed.
The vote recount failed.
The effort to sway the Electoral College failed.
But the effort continues.
The CIA report on Russia’s alleged interference in the US presidential election ordered by Obama is in process. Faked evidence is a hallmark of CIA operations.
In their determination to seal Trump’s ears against environmental concerns, a group of environmentalists plan to disrupt the inauguration.
This in itself is of little consequence, but chaos presents opportunity for assassination.
Trump himself seems to think he is in danger.
According to MSNBC, Trump intends to supplement his Secret Service protection with private security.
As there is evidence of CIA complicity in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (film shows Secret Service agents ordered away from JFK’s limo immediately prior to his assassination), Trump, who is clearly seen as a threat by the military/security complex, is not being paranoid.
MSNBC implies that Trump’s private security is to suppress protesters, as if government security forces have shown any compunction about suppressing protesters. http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc-news/watch/will-trump-use-private-security-as-president-837040707540
Global Research’s Michel Chossudovsky has explained that Trump’s peaceful approach to Russia aligns him with oligarchs, whose wealth benefits from business deals with Russia, and puts Trump at odds with the military/security oligarchs, who benefit from the one trillion dollar annual military/security budget.
The latter group have been in control since President Eisenhower warned us about them and can muster deep state forces against a Trump presidency.
To take on a group like this requires a tough SOB. Anything less than Trump wouldn’t have a chance. Indeed, if Douglas Valentine’s just published book, The CIA As Organized Crime (Clarity Press, 2017) is even half true, Trump’s life is certainly at risk.
Donald Trump is clearly no saint.
Given what we are up against—dangerous tensions between nuclear powers and the military/security complex’s stake in these tensions—a saint is not what the situation calls for.
The military/security complex has been entrenched since NATO’s formation on April 4, 1949, a provocation that preceded by six years the formation of the Warsaw Pact on May 14, 1955. Any president willing to confront this entrenched deep state superpower deserves the support of all of us.
