President Ronald Reagan's Asst. Secretary of the Treasury, Paul Craig Roberts, a strong supporter of Donald Trump, has appeared on Russian Television (RT, now widely available on U.S. cable) along with an anti-Trump war correspondent and Pulitzer Prize winning author, Christopher Hedges, who has been given his own program titled "On Contact". It appears that both men see the inclusion of Russian-sponsored television which had invited former Trump National Security Advisor, General Michael Flynn, to Moscow where he was honored by Russian President Vladimir Putin, as providing a new source of real, not fake, news.
RT or Russian Television has made a sustained effort to validate its freedom and independence from the kind of political oversight that sent many outspoken Russian critics to the Gulags during the Cold War. Among them was Alexander Solzhenitsyn who in 1978 delivered his Princeton University commencement address "A World Split Apart". Solzhenitsyn said...."these deep manifold splits bear the danger of equally manifold disaster for all of us, in accordance with the ancient truth that a kingdom --in this case the earth---divided against itself cannot stand."
Solzhenitzyn concluded his speech thus...."If the world has not approached its end, it has reached a major watershed in history, equal in importance to the turn from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. IT will demand from us a spiritual blaze, we shall have to rise to a new height of vision, to a new level of life, where our physical nature will not be cursed, as in the Middle Ages, but even more importantly, our spiritual being will not be trampled upon, as in the Modern era. The ascension is similar to climbing onto the next anthropological stage. No one on earth has any other way left but--upward."
One critic of the first three months of Trump's Presidency and the decline of traditional liberal class said "Trump is pumping his cabinet full of Middle Agers bent on turning back the hands of time and on a slippery puddle of Exxon's Russian and Saudi carbon smegma forcing the race toward a fracked up oil slick puddle of muddled intentions that like the church during the Inquisition jailed the world's brightest and best scientists who were put under house arrest for claiming that the earth (and what is oil, but the earth's blood?) is NOT the center of the universe. We don't have to be like an addict selling his lifeblood for another miserable day of eye-watering-bronchial-clogging breaths when the winds blow freely and the sun will shine for another four billion years."
Roberts has made it quite clear that he was having during his political tenure to shield Ronald Reagan from the NeoCons within the Reagan galaxy. Was Reagan held captive by GHWB during Iran-Contra as an unwitting pawn? That may be a stretch, but the NeoCon group would become quite transparent with the rise of George W. Bush, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and others of the Post-911 assault on the Middle East which former NATO Commander, General Wesley Clark, has strongly claimed led a policy coup of wars in seven countries the Middle East in as many years. Reagan may not have been in the inner circle of NeoCons who groomed Oliver North, John Poindexter, Caspar Weinberger and Elliott Abrams, but he was certainly in the kitchen where the future yellow cake was being batter whipped. Those post 911 Middle Eastern wars in the very nations that Donald Trump has included in his Muslim travel ban do not include Saudi Arabia or Pakistan.....home to 15 of the 19 September 11, 2001 WTC jet hijackers and sanctuary to Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan. In addition, the killing of Bin Laden in Pakistan seems little justification for taking over Afghanistan where Bin Laden just passed through and where the Taliban had essentially shut off the spigot of the world's leading poppy supplies....a plant that will grow nearly anywhere as has been proven by the Colombians and Mexicans with their black tar heroin and Indo-China's Golden Triangles' competing poppy fields that could easily be in California, Oregon, Washington or Colorado. "Guess whose controlling the flow of Afghanistan's and the whole Golden Crescent's poppy products since the early 1800's?" asked Wigglesworth.
Both Chris Hedges and Paul C. Roberts have made it clear that the NeoCon and NeoLibs of the Obama and liberal Democratic party have both embraced U.S. hegemony while increasing the risk of war with Russia.
"I think that it's damn well time that both Hedges and Roberts help open our eyes to the fact that the NeoCon and NeoLibs are what Sanford University professor and Hoover Institute researcher where Roberts was also a fellow researcher called 'The Order' and who made their fortunes in opium that co-joined whaling....as in Herman Melville's big white Moby Dick that dragged everyone under....and morphed into railroads, shipping, oil, sulfur, uranium and weapons. That Order created, according to Sutton, the U.S.S.R. with massive transfers of technology from the West to make.....as Sutton's book by that name clearly illustrates.....The Best Enemy Money Can Buy," said historian Lowell P. Wigglesworth.
With its manufacturing jobs sent overseas in what in 1992 H. Ross Perot said would be, thanks to the GHWB and Clinton push for GNATT and NAFTA..... "a giant sucking sound".....the American middle class has been decimated. The 1% of the wealthy flourishes and the stock market is poised to drop like a sack of brass door knobs into the abyss with no more $20 trillion debt bombs to drop on the forest fire of the failing U.S. economy," said Wigglesworth. The post-Trump-election Wall Street stock rally is, according to Wigglesworth, a pimple on the ugly butt of a butt-awful sad awakening to come that has fellow Reagan-ite, David Stockman, Reagan's Budget Director, yelling "get out of stocks and get out NOW!"
Meanwhile, Neil Gorsuch, son of Reagan's EPA director, Ann Gorsuch, who was held in contempt of Congress for her failure to enforce EPA regulations, is Trump's choice for the Supreme Court.
"Look," said Wigglesworth, Neil Gorsuch was a lawyer who cut his teeth on the Big Tobacco settlements which R.J. Reynolds, Brown & Williamson and the rest who damn well knew they would have to be litigated against like the mesothelioma-triggering asbestos suppliers. Who was into distributing these products? The same butt-heads who were putting lead into house paint fifty years after Europe banned it....and into gasoline for smoother running engines.....or so they argued. These were the same guys pumping and dumping stocks on Wall Street like Enron, WorldCom and Tyco. These were the guys that in Texas saw the Texas Attorney General, Dan Morales, attempt to cut out for himself a piece of the billion dollar Texas tobacco settlement.....then go to jail.....a man who ran in the company of Paul Adams Rush who did likewise for different reasons, Rush being GWB's Iraq recovery czar, Stuart Bowen's, understudy in Morale's San Antonio hometown. Never forget that the supposed hero of the big tobacco story was CBS's 60 Minutes reporter, Lowell Bergman, played by Al Pacino in movie The Insider. Bergman falsely reported in 1988 that Salem Bin Laden, the eldest brother of Osama Bin Laden, had flown his BAC-111 jet into the ground in Texas killing the Bin Laden heir-apparent. It wasn't in Salem's big jet that the well-trained fighter pilot died, but in a borrowed ultra-light that flew inexplicably like a drone into a high power line at the Field of Dreams Airport in Cibolo, Texas. Dead on arrival at Brook Army Medical Center, the Field of Dreams is still owned by the father and mother in law of General Bruce Carlson, Commander of Offutt AFB and Director of the NRO (National Reconnaissance Office that called for games to be played on 911 effectively sideline-ing NORAD....a story covered by Slate.com's Scott Shuger with his article IGNORAD......Shuger dying in a witness-less scuba diving accident within a few months of writing the story in 2001)," said Wigglesworth. "Carlson's mother-in-law had been a career administrator at Beechcraft where Linden Blue, founder of General Atomics Inc. and the Predators and Reapers, had been the President," said Wigglesworth. Blue and his brother, Yale classmates and fraternity brothers of George W. Bush, had been Anastosio Samoza's business partners in Nicaragua.
Wigglesworth has also noted that Big Tobacco is seeing a medical link to research for the EBOLA virus funding a research center at Texas A&M University that is hopeful of plopping an industry-saving tobacco host into the center of the EBOLA debate while CDC and Emory physicians hold the world-wide patent on the EBOLA virus, both institutions in Georgia where Phoenix Air shuttles EBOLA victims with its fleet of gray Lear jets (a company also served by Linden Blue's leadership) out of places like oil rich Nigeria and diamond rich Sierra Leone," said Wigglesworth noting the sloppy and delayed effort to effect an EBOLA vaccine. "You'd think that these folks are in line with Jay Rockefeller from West Virginia appearing to be benevolent while flattening the landscape and puking heavy metals into the Appalachian water supply which is quieter than the machine guns at Ludlow, Colorado," Wigglesworth reasoned.
It was, of course CBS's 60 Minutes that botched the 1999/2000 revelation that George W. Bush's Texas Air National Guard records showed he went AWOL. "Yea, they failed to cover the story in 1999 when Mary Mapes and Dan Rather first found out and then they royally flushed the story down the pipes when they botched it again in 2004," said Wigglesworth noting that CBS's President is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama's policy wonk who was the leading Obama advisor on both the 911 Commission and the Benghazi attack that killed a U.S. Ambassador and others.
"Never forget that in 1988 not only did Salem Bin Laden, a close business partner of Saudi royal banker Khalid Bin Mahfouz who was the partner of GWB's Air National Guard roommate, James Reynolds Bath, died in Texas. That was the same year Pan Am 103 exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland with CIA Agent Matthew Gannon on board. Gannon is the key to understanding the evolution of Al Qaeda for the coming War on Terror that has acted like a second Pearl Harbor," said Wigglesworth. "Roberts and Hedges need to be more outspoken about these connections to the fascist left and fascist right and to the fact that Ann Gorsuch, Neil's mother, was a rabid ripper-upper of the regulations that keep benzene out of people's lungs while her husband was the head of the Bureau of Land Management, controlling as he did the public lands under which the Koch brother squabbles claimed that their family had made fortunes from mineral right leases at favorable prices," said Wigglesworth.
Roberts uses the threat of nuclear inhalation to legitimize Trump's queer quirkiness and to show empathy for Putin whose reality, for good or bad, is shaped by a national crisis that lost 26 million people during WWII and informs their fear of doing battle again on Russian soil. "Paul Craig Roberts is right to want Russia to be an American ally, but he's fighting a losing battle. We should have done that with Kennedy when the botched Bay of Pigs could have been shown to be the Deep States' "Brilliant Disaster" using a little island as an incentive for monumental war spending. The two-pronged War on Terror and Cold War Revisited with Russia is providing Trump with his military build-up while he cuts domestic infrastructure of which education is the backbone.
