Sebastian Gorka Is Trump’s Baghdad Bob

This is the spin coming out of the White House:

“Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to the president, said on Friday morning that President Donald Trump’s populist supporters need not fear that the decision to strike a Syrian government target last week represents an embrace of neoconservatism.

“It’s not a modification,” Gorka said Friday on “The Laura Ingraham Show.” “Donald J. Trump hasn’t changed from November 7 to Good Friday, April 14,” he said. …

“It makes no sense — the idea that we are mired in something when we take an action that lasted 15 minutes,” Gorka said. To compare it with Iraq or Afghanistan “is just a salacious analogy … we are not mired in anything,” Gorka said. …”

Actually, it can be compared to Iraq.

George W. Bush launched an air strike on Iraq less than a month into his presidency. He had campaigned on a “humble foreign policy” which was forgotten after the Supreme Court made him president. W. also famously spent his political capital in 2001 on tax cuts.

Note: We remember W. for Iraq and comprehensive immigration reform. He didn’t get around to pushing hard for amnesty though until his second term. It is also worth noting that W. labeled Iran and North Korea part of the “Axis of Evil” and look where we are now.

  1. Well, at least, Gorka’s feeling compelled to say this indicates Trump is aware how the Syrian strike was perceived by his supporters.

  2. First He Fucked Your Daughter Don…

    Then He Fucked Up Your Presidency…

  3. Gorka’s a strange, opportunistic bird. Some ties to the Hungarian hardRight, but lately has taken a Zionist turn. In any case, [[[Trump’s]]] intentions in Syria are now evident: clear out the Russians, overthrow Assad’s Shi’a regime, and then install an Israel-tolerant (see also: Cairo, Riyadh, Amman) Sunni clacque. This done, and with Hezbollah thus cut off from Iranian weapons resupply, Israel will blast into southern Lebanon and Israel’s ‘Murkan puppet will attack Iran. I doubt that even the first part of this can be accomplished without sparking WWW III vs. Russia. And maybe that’s exactly what the (((neo-conz))) want: the Jews are out to exterminate the northern hemisphere Whites, and Israel figures to be well south of the main blast and radiation zones.

  4. BEIJING, March 8 (Xinhua) — China proposed “double suspension” to defuse the looming crisis on the Korean Peninsula, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday.

    “As a first step, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) may suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the suspension of large-scale U.S.-Republic of Korea (ROK) military exercises,” Wang told a press conference on the sidelines of the annual session of the National People’s Congress.

    Wang said the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula is mainly between the DPRK and the United States, but China, as a next-door neighbor with a lips-and-teeth relationship with the Peninsula, is indispensable to the resolution of the issue.

    North Korea has made the very same offer in January 2015. The Obama administration rejected it. North Korea repeated the offer in April 2016 and the Obama administration rejected it again. This March the Chinese government conveyed and supported the long-standing North Korean offer. The U.S. government, now under the Trump administration, immediately rejected it again.

  5. Off topic, but I feel compelled to report the latest evidence that the white race has its head up its ass …

    As I was opening my web browser, a few minutes ago, I saw a news story headlined “Sister-in-law of Giants’ Crawford dies.” Because, by coincidence, I had just then been attending to some family history involving relatives named Crawford, the headline caught my attention, and I decided to find out who was this “Crawford,” of the “Giants.” Had I been asked, at that moment, who the “Giants” were, I’d have said, “I don’t know. The New York Giants? Isn’t there a football team called the New York Giants?” It turns out it’s the San Francisco Giants, which, I guess, is a football team.

    The article’s first sentence–which is pretty-much where I stopped–is as follows:

    “Every now and again, we are reminded that there is so much more to life than sports.”

    I hope I don’t have to tell anyone here to let that sink in.

    “Wang said the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula is mainly between the DPRK and the United States, but China, as a next-door neighbor with a lips-and-teeth relationship with the Peninsula, is indispensable to the resolution of the issue.”

    The smart thing to do is let China handle North Korea. If North Korea does anything, China will destroy them. They’ve already moved another 250k troops to the Sino-North Korean border. On the same note, The ROK army is a larger and more modern army than North Korea’s. Sans nuclear weapons, the North’s 1950’s era army would wilt under the ROK army’s withering fire. Nuclear ordinance is literally all they’ve got left.

    As an aside, the U.S. ought to shut up and just provide logistics to the ROK.

  7. I’ve come to three conclusions about Trump:
    1) He’s an incredibly brilliant strategist and despite appearances, means to keep every word of his promises.
    2) He’s a liar and a backstabber and never meant a word of his promises.
    3) He’s gone psychotic and is out of his frigging mind.
