Trump: What’s The Deal?
Old Trump? New Trump? Same Trump

A documentary from the 90s, which was suppressed by Trump, has come out in social media. It's pretty one-eyed - but, has important truths to tell

Here it is a golden oldie: Trump: What's the Deal
http://trumpthemovie.com/fulllength

Leonard Stern, a New York pet food mogul and real estate developer, decided to finance a series of documentaries about celebrity businessmen. For the first documentary, he chose Donald Trump, who was then riding his bestselling book The Art of the Deal, and beloved by the media.

There's remarkable stuff: Donald working with the mob in Atlantic City, intimidating tenants, hiring illegal immigrant labor, verbally assaulting his family and underlings, trying to move a Florida airport because jets flew directly over his home... the list goes on and on.

The filmmakers revealed Trump to be the opposite of a small-government conservative. He got his start with his father's money and political connections, and he made money the same way his father did: on the backs of taxpayers.

The filmmakers had a lot to work with on their subject, Trump --- his exaggerations, distortions, near-criminal behavior and his financial disasters

One of the musical themes of the documentary is the highly appropriate Song by Queen I want it all 🤑

Gotta find me a future move out of my way,
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now,

Now the *PT Barnum of Business want's to be President. No wonder the 2016 Presidential primaries seem like a 3 Ring Circus.

If you want to predict how someone would act in the future - look at how they have acted in the past.
Old Trump? New Trump? Same Trump

-------------------------------

*Phineas Taylor "P. T." Barnum was an American showman and businessman remembered for promoting celebrated hoaxes and for founding the Barnum & Bailey Circus.

Although Barnum was also an author, publisher, philanthropist, and for some time a politician, he said of himself, I am a showman by profession...and all the gilding shall make nothing else of me
His personal aim was to put money in his own coffers".

Barnum is widely, credited with coining the phrase There's a sucker born every minute

The major western democracies are moving towards corporatism.

Democracy has become a business plan, with a bottom line for every human activity, every dream, every decency, every hope.

The main parliamentary parties are now devoted to the same economic policies - socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor - and the same foreign policy of servility to endless war.

This is not Democracy. It is to politics what McDonalds is to food.

The most effective way to restrict democracy is to transfer decision making from the public arena to unaccountable institutions: kings and princes, priestly castes, military juntas, party dictatorships or modern corporations
- Noam Chomsky

The TPP, TISA and other toxic trade pacts that are being settled in secretly - with input from multinational corporations and deliberate exclusion of the public is a case in point.

Management of Savagery: The Most Critical Stage Through Which the Umma (transnational Islamic State) Will Pass

This book is allegedly written by an influential Islamic religious extremist strategist.

It was published on the Internet in 2004. It aimed to provide a strategy for al-Qaeda and other jihadists whereby they could create a new (trans global) Islamic caliphate.

I would not normally share such material - but think it provides an important insight into the Machiavellian rationale behind savagery (terrorism) as a means to create an extremist Salafist trans-national Islamic State.

I will add summary points as I read more of it.

https://azelin.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/abu-bakr-naji-the-management-of-savagery-the-most-critical-stage-through-which-the-umma-will-pass.pdf

The real identity of Abu Bakr Naji is claimed by the Al Arabiya Institute for Studies to be Muhammad Khalil al-Hakaymah. His known works are this piece and some contributions to the al-Qaeda online magazine Sawt al-Jihad. National Public Radio has described Naji as a "top al-Qaida insider" and characterized the work as "al-Qaida's playbook"

Management of Savagery discusses the need to create and manage nationalist and religious resentment and violence in order to create long-term propaganda opportunities for jihadist groups.

Notably, Naji discusses the value of provoking military responses from superpowers in order to recruit and train guerilla fighters and to create martyrs.

Naji suggests that a long-lasting strategy of attrition will reveal fundamental weaknesses in the ability of superpowers to defeat committed jihadists.

Management of Savagery argues that carrying out a campaign of constant violent attacks in Muslim states will eventually exhaust their ability and will to enforce their authority, and that as the writ of the state withers away, chaos—or "savagery"—will ensue.

By exploitation of the anarchy that occurs during and following bloody civil insurrections, the writer claims that Jihadists can win public support.
(Isn't this how the Taliban gained public credibility in Afghanistan)

Jihadists can take advantage of this savagery to win popular support, or at least acquiescence, by implementing security, providing social services, and imposing Sharia. As these territories increase, they can become the nucleus of a new caliphate.

Naji nominated Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, North Africa, Nigeria and Pakistan as potential targets, due to their geography, weak military presence in remote areas, existing jihadist presence, and easy accessibility of weapons.

Naji professes to have been inspired by Ibn Taymiyya, the influential 14th century Islamic scholar and theologian.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Management_of_Savagery

It would seem that western powers are playing into the hands of jihadists by increasing aggressive acts. This serves to terrify the local public and creates fear and hate of "foreign" aggressors; rather than the perception that they are there to "help" them.

It's disturbing reading, the little I've gotten through so far - but shows the Machiavellian mind set behind the acts of terrorism.

Truth, Lies, Deception, Secrecy and Coverups - Democracy under Fire
Introduction

Truth, Lies, Deception, Secrecy and Coverups - Democracy under Fire

Like many others, I've only recently awakened to the assault on democracy and civil liberties the world over.

The Blogs I post are for educational purposes - to inform the public of relevant details regarding the truth of what is happening in governments the world over - and to encourage positive peaceful change. 

An informed public is powerful. But authoritarian rulers do not want the public to be informed. They lie, deceive, mislead and operate in secrecy to hide actions that would alarm or disgust the public and/or are not to the benefit of the public. 

Informing the public of the truth has become a battle between right versus might; truth versus lies and deception; transparency versus secrecy and coverups.

Democracy and civil liberties are under fire from within in many countries - by some of our own elected representatives, as well as some powerful government administrators and those in power in the military-industrial-surveillance complex - who want to consolidate and grow their power base nationally and internationally. 

Mass surveillance, propaganda, censorship and entrenched government secrecy are being used to disempower the public and provide the power elite with unwarranted authority and control over the public. 

Democracy and civil liberties are also under threat from the masterminds behind the financial sector - whose deliberate, calculated wheeling and dealing has likely resulted in the rise and fall of economies. These money monarchs likely also have substantial control over governments the world over because of what they can do that would influence the value of investments or level of loans of various countries. 

The political whipping system is another major threat to the democratic process - that should be seriously curtailed or abolished. 

The consequence of these factors has been evolution of so-called democratic governments run by administrations who dance to the tune of the rich and powerful and ignore the consequences of policies and law changes on the general public. 

We are being more and more ruled by an elite group who would lie to and deceive the public without blinking an eye, turn a blind eye to wrong-doing, and who are lacking in trustworthiness and integrity. Knowledge based on truth brings power. This Blog is about raising awareness of the true consequences of government policies, actions and law changes - and to encourage a focus on policies actions and law respectful of democracy, civil liberties and human rights.

All that is required for evil to take hold and grow is to: close your eyes, block your ears, shut your mouth - and do nothing.

Bragging rights
My eyes have been opened - and I want to help others see.
