Donald Trump Appoints Elliot Abrams As His Iran Envoy

A few years ago, I was naive enough to believe that by electing Donald Trump we would somehow get rid of the neocons and their grip over foreign policy in Republican administrations.

Axios:

“President Trump’s Iran envoy, Brian Hook, is stepping down and will be replaced by Elliott Abrams, a noted Iran hawk who currently serves as Trump’s envoy for Venezuela, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed Thursday. Abrams will continue to serve in his role as Venezuela envoy.

Why it matters: Hook had been tasked with executing Trump’s “maximum pressure” policy toward Iran, working closely with Pompeo. That strategy has deepened tensions and thus far failed to force Iran back to the negotiating table, as Trump had hoped. …”

I wrote:

“For this, I am grateful.

Trump has made all of these old fogies and their ideas irrelevant. What must it feel like? The moment when you realize you don’t know shit? Of all of Trump’s accomplishments in this campaign, flushing the neocon parasites and polarizing the “base” against their disastrous foreign policy – to the point where they are now discrediting themselves by openly backing Hillary – has earned a spot near the top of my list.

According to (((Ben Shapiro))), the Alt-Right has literally taken over the Republican Party! That’s a wild exaggeration of course, but it is true that Trump has pulled us into a Mirror Universe where everything is the opposite of what it used to be. …”

So far, we have not taken the plunge into a new war with Iran, but there is no guarantee that won’t happen in a Trump second term once the 2020 election is over. The neocons were not flushed after the 2016 election. We were immediately flushed. Elliot Abrams has returned to power.

At the time, I thought that Trump would dump the neocons like John Bolton and Elliot Abrams. This is what his base wanted. It is what he ran on in the 2016 campaign. Also, there was nothing stopping him from scoring an easy win because the president has authority over foreign policy. Instead, Elliot Abrams was put in charge of regime change in Venezuela and has now been appointed as Trump’s envoy to Iran.

Why did Trump resurrect John Bolton and Elliot Abrams from eternal disgrace after the Iraq War? It is what his donors wanted. He sold the policies to the donors. In a nutshell, there is the whole problem. It is why voting in the 2020 election is pointless. You are not voting for policies which are nothing but election year rhetoric to turnout voters. You are voting to empower one set of donors or another. The donors then go on to get everything they want like the Golan Heights or Jersualem.

  1. Does it not seem like sending Mr. Abrams to Iran is something akin to sending a gun control advocate to Granny Clampett’s house?

  2. GOP voters are like cuckold husbands. Except its worse than that. They are literally empowering their worst enemies who hate them in exchange for crude and obvious lies.

  3. The Republican Party is an empty shell. The real Republican Party is the donors that bankroll it. The AmNatzis if they aren’t controlled op, are trying to take over the wrong thing.

  4. “””,,,Why did Trump resurrect John Bolton and Elliot Abrams from eternal disgrace after the Iraq War?….”””

    Well, despite of failed wars neocons remained respected politicians . Millions of people did not demanded McCain removal or punishment but millions of people kept voting him in every election.

    Donald does the very same thing comrade Stalin did arranging his purges. Promotion first and destruction later. Very shitty but unfortunately the only thing what works with cucked masses. Uncucking is one of the most painful process for the society .

  5. U.S. ambassadors are the complete opposite of respectful and diplomatic. They are rude and insulting, and “meddle” in all foreign elections and other political processes. For example, Trump’s new ambassador to Germany is a Fox News promoted military “authority” who gives marching orders to the Germans and treats them as the imperial puppets that they are. Ditto for Trump’s new ambassador to Poland: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgette_Mosbacher

  6. Don’t forget that today is the 75th anniversary of the U.S. mass-murder atomic bombing of Hiroshima. The combined death toll of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, including instant and delayed fatalities, is about one half million innocent souls. Yet there is still no international war crime trial. The Empire is emboldened by the delay and is spending about one TRILLION dollars to create a new, improved arsenal of “useable” adjustable-yield nuclear weapons and preparing for aggressive first-strike nuclear war.

    • Heebs did the beruit explosion supposedly I mean the mushroom cloud was literally the happy merchant rubbing his hands together and Bibi threatened them week ago before so…

      Yep nuclear war could unfortunately be on the horizon i’m afraid The hiroshima nuke is a shameful part of Americas history no matter what happened at pearl harbor with the Japanese kamikazes the nuking was not justifiable and was pure evil in response imo

        • Do you concur with the theory of Zionist responsibility for destroying much of the city of Beirut, or with Hiroshima being a war crime, or with both?

          Regarding the Beirut explosion, which was one-fifth the strength of the Hiroshima bomb and produced a cloud of deadly NO2,, Bernhard the German “Moon of Alabama” blogger says it was NOT caused by Israeli bombing, but by a welder, who accidentally set off fireworks stored in a building near the well-known (it was common knowledge in other countries, not just in Lebanon) ammonium nitrate warehouse. See: https://www.moonofalabama.org/2020/08/beirut-blast-wrap-up.html But who sent the welder to work there, and was he warned?

      • The first nuke should have been dropped very close to Tokyo as a warning and first opportunity to surrender. Failing that, a more military-centric target could have possibly been chosen for the second one. But most people in the decision making chain at the time didn’t have much issue with vaporizing and terrorizing “Jap” civilians as a way to avoid 100,000 or more American deaths in an invasion. These people had zero issue with burning white German civilians. What’s a few hundred thousand Japs matter?

        • Re: The first nuke should have been dropped very close to Tokyo”:

          NO nuke should ever have been dropped anywhere. But thanks to the spies of the Los Alamos Manhattan Project, especially Ted Hall, who gave Russia the plans for the Plutonium bomb, the U.S.’s full-scale nuclear war on Russia was prevented.

  7. Moshiach is going to deal with these kykes and he is on his way. Look at that mug on Abrams. You know he needs to be Moshiached like there is no tomorrow. Soon Abrams, very soon.

    • Dear Robert – it’s not Secretary Abrams’s ‘mug’ that is his problem, it’s his soul.

      At any rate – have a great evening!

      • Anyone else want to join me in a Liturgy of Malediction against the Jews- the entire race?
        My God, have mercy on us. REMOVE THE ANTICHRIST from our midst.

  8. The only thing that will stop these Cold War relics and their 20th Century outlook and politics, is death. Unfortunately, they’ll probably leave behind young protégés, thoroughly schooled in the politics of the late 20th Century, and ready, willing and able to confront the Soviet Union in Central Europe.

  9. This is what happens when you drain the swamp but let the swamp critters survive! Whatever Janvanka wants Javanka gets. (The co-presidency of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump) The Republicans and the Democrats are like two people in a fist fight on the deck of the Titanic over who will get to sit in this or that deck chair as the iceberg slowly approaches. Whoever wins the ship is going down!
