Despite his bursts of over-the-top egomania, I tend to want to appreciate over-the-top truth-telling wild card Trump, in no small part because of his campaign rhetoric about wanting to make friends with Russia. That is, I did appreciate him until he, or is it elements within his divided administration? started demonizing China and Iran! When parsing the seeming “pivot” to Iran and China from Russia, I found a current posting by spiritual/multidimensional geopolitical analyst Lada Ray — whose success with predictions is unusually high — enlightening. Her overall perspective is that the Earth is divided into two, yin and yang. The West (and especially the U.S.) is “yang”, and thus assertive, or when negative, aggressive, and the East is “yin,” and thus receptive. Between these two, and linking them, as “The Great Balancer,” is Russia, its land mass the largest in the world. (And see psychic Edgar Cayce’s prophetic view of Russia as “the hope of the world.”)
Now if Trump really has decided to let go of Russia as Enemy #1, why does the American Empire seem to be turning now to to China and/or Iran as new enemies? Hell, that’s easy. Because the military-industrial war machine absolutely must have an ENEMY in order to keep going, or, as Kukinich put it so succinctly, to continue to “cash in.”
And as Lada Ray puts it, since the U.S. won’t be “for” something (the active creative use of yang energy), it continues in its profoundly stuck habit of being “against” something.
If you still don’t think that the humungous, overweening deep state war machine powers what’s left of the U.S. economy as its infrastructure continues to crumble —
— then check out the stated DOD expenditures for one month, January 2017, which I found on Sibel Edmunds site.
DOD spent $12,867,000,000+ on 142 individual contracts in January 2017
The Pentagon issues a jumbled list of contracts every business day around 5:00PM local time. Our project distills an entire month of these contracts into an accessible form.
The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) spent at least $12,867,000,000 on 142 individual contracts during January 2017. This amount does not include 15 Foreign Military Sales transactions worth $587,227,000.
A.K. again: I can’t bear to post the whole list. It’s just so damn long and disgusting. But DO check it out, at least skim through. And of course, these are just the STATED expenditures; we’ll never know the off-book “black budget” for that same month, nor what secret projects it’s funding.
