Letter concerning Vaccines to CEO of AMCHAM Korea 미국상공회의소

The following letter was sent on February 17 to AMCHAM Korea CEO James Kim (미국상공회의소 대표이사 겸 회장). We are waiting for a response before demanding his resignation.




10, Gukje geumyung-ro

Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul 07326, Korea


Mr. James Kim

Chairman and CEO


February 17, 2021

Dear Chairman Kim,

It was a great pleasure to have breakfast with you on January 7 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel and to learn of the diverse activities of AMCHAM Korea. I am deeply  impressed by the range of your engagement with the American and Korean business communities and by the deep commitment demonstrated by you, and by your excellent staff, to promoting American business, and American values, here in South Korea.

I personally feel that every action I take in Korea as a professor, or as the head of a think tank, must represent the best of American values.

I greatly value my membership in the American Chamber of Commerce Korea and I find that your work is critical to Americans like me engaged with Washington D.C., and with Seoul, in a broad discussion about education, research, diplomacy and security.

I am particularly interested in US-Korea cooperation in science (and security). As you know, I have worked on numerous joint research projects involving Korean and American research institutes and universities over the 12 years I have been in Korea. I worked on similar international collaboration with the Republic of Korea when I was a professor at University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign.

I am writing you today regarding the commitment of AMCHAM Korea, and the United States as a whole, to science and technology that plays a positive role in society. We have a duty to hold up the best of American values for all Koreans to witness.

AMCHAM Korea currently has on its board of governors Mr. Dave (Dongwook) Oh, the Country Manager for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals Korea.

As you know, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals has been at the center of an enormous controversy regarding the promotion of so-called vaccines for the COVID19 virus. Numerous renowned experts have testified that not only is this virus not particularly dangerous, but that the concept of a vaccine for such a virus is not supported by the science.

Yet Pfizer is promoting a COVID19 vaccine containing modified RNA that has been proven to damaging to the DNA of healthy people, and that has not been subject to extensive animal testing.

Pfizer Pharmaceutical’s promotion of this COVID19 vaccine, and its lobbying to make the vaccine mandatory in the Republic of Korea, is considered by me, and by numerous American experts, to be deeply troubling.

We are also deeply concerned that AmCham Korea should speak in favor of this vaccine granted the deep uncertainty among experts its need and its utility.

The overwhelming sentiment among the experts whom I know is that sales and the distribution of the COVID19 vaccine must be stopped immediately.

I call upon you today to have AMCHAM Korea to open up a transparent and science-based debate on the validity of these vaccines for COVID19.

Granted the deep ethical questions concerning the specific promotion of vaccines by Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, I request that you formally remove Mr. Dave Oh from the board of governors of AMCHAM immediately.

In fact, so dangerous and unethical is the promotion of this COVID19 vaccine by Pfizer Pharmaceuticals and other firms that I  request (on behalf of many Americans whom I am happy to document at a later date) that Pfizer’s status as a member of AMCHAM Korea be suspended pending an international scientific review.

I am happy to provide you detailed medical reviews demonstrating why the COVID19 vaccine is ineffective and why the COVID19 vaccine promoted by Pfizer Pharmaceuticals specifically is a risk.

Let us set up a meeting as soon as possible. I will be happy to invite a group of leading Korean scientists (and even have a video linkup with American experts as well) and I recommend that we have others present from AMCHAM Korea and from the US Embassy for a broad discussion of the COVID19 vaccine.

If it can be proven that individuals, or corporations, were involved in the process of promoting dangerous pharmaceuticals without sufficient testing, or scientific evidence for their effectiveness, such individuals can, and will, be subject, to the severe legal consequences.

I highly recommend that all of us be extremely careful in every step of this process of evaluating the status of Pfizer Pharmaceuticals in AMCHAM Korea and the utility of AMCHAM’s promotion of vaccines for COVID19 as we can be sure that our actions are be watched with interest around the world. The global stature of the United States in general, and of AMCHAM in specific, is at stake.

Thank you for your attention and I do look forward to your response. I am happy to meet you at your office or at any convenient location

Mr. James Kim 제임스 킴

Chairman and CEO 회장 겸 대표이사

AMCHAM Korea 미국상공회의소

킴 회장님 께

1월 7일 그랜드 하얏트 호텔에서 아침 식사를 함께하고 AMCHAM 코리아의 다양한 활동을 알게되어 정말 기뻤습니다. 또한 이번 기회에 AMCHAM 의 미국과 한국 비즈니스 커뮤니티간의 다양한 참여와 훌륭한 직원들이 한국에 다양한 미국의 가치와 미국 기업을 홍보하기 위한 헌신에 깊은 감명을 받았습니다.

개인적으로 저는 교수로서 학자로서 또 싱크탱크의 수장으로서 한국이 취하는 모든 협력이 미국의 가치관과 대한미국 의 가치관을 균형맞게 대변할수있어야 한다고 믿습니다.

저는 미국 상공회의소에 소속된 회원임을 매우 영광으로 생각하고 있으며 교육, 연구, 문화, 외교, 안보에 관한 폭넓은 토론에서 워싱턴 D.C와 친밀하게 작업하는 저같은 미국인이 서울시와도 함께 협력해 나아가는것이 매우 중요하다는것을 잘 알고 있습니다.

특히 저는 과학(안보)에 대한 한미협력에 신중한 촞점을 두고 있습니다. 아시다시피, 저는 한국에서 12년 동안 한미 연구기관, 대학등 다양한 공동 연구 프로젝트를 꾸준히 진행해 왔습니다. 저는 일리노이 대학교 어바나 샴페인 대학교 교수로 재직할 때 한국(및 일본)과 유사한 국제 적 협력에도 동참해왔습니다.

저는 오늘 AMCHAM가 헌신적으로 코리아와 미국 전체를 위하여 첨단 과학기술로 긍정적 헌신을 해온것에 대하여 높이 평가합니다. 우리는 모든 한국인이 목격할 수 있는 미국의 진심어린 의도와 가치를 최대한 존중해야하며 지켜야 할 의무가 있습니다.

AMCHAM 코리아는 현재 화이자제약 의국가매니저 인 데이브(동욱) 총재의 이사회에 참여하고 있습니다.

아시다시피 화이자 제약은 소위 COVID19 바이러스에 대한 백신 홍보에 관한 엄청난 논쟁의 중심에 있었습니다. 수많은 저명한 전문가들은 이 바이러스가 특히 위험하지 않고 바이러스 무의미한 백신의 개념일 뿐만 아니라 화이자 COVID19 백신에는 건강한 사람들의 DNA에 극도로 손상을 입히고 수많은 추가 질병을 일으킬 수 있는 변형된 RNA가 포함되어 있다고 증언했습니다.

화이자제약이 COVID19 백신을 홍보하고 한국에서 백신을 의무화하기 위한 로비는 매우 비윤리적이며 저와 수많은 미국 전문가들도 이 화이자 COVID19 백신의 판매와 유통을 즉시 중단해야 한다고 생각합니다.

저는 오늘 AMCHAM 코리아가 화이자 제약 COVID19 백신 홍보에 대한 반대를 분명히 표명하고  AMCHAM의 이사회에서 데이브 오 씨의 즉각 제직을 강력히 촉구합니다. 사실 화이자 제약에 의한 COVID19 백신의 홍보는 국제 과학 검토에 입각하여 또한 제가 AMCHAM코리아의 한 회원으로서 화이자의 지위를 보류할 것을 요청해야 한다고 생각합니다.

COVID19 백신이 왜 효과가 없는지 또 화이자 제약이 추진하는 COVID19 백신이 왜 극히 위험한 이유에 대한 세밀한 의학적 분석과 과학적 참조 자료를 기꺼이 제공해드릴 의향도 있습니다.

가능한 한 빨리 회의를 준비했으면 합니다. 한국을 대표하는 과학자들을 속히 바른 시일내에 초청하는것이 시급하며(심지어 미국 전문가들과도 비디오 연계를 할 수 있음) AMCHAM 한국과 미국 대사관에서 폭넓은 논의를 위해 다른 사람들이 참석하도록 권고합니다.

마지막으로 저는 누군가가 이번 상황의 심각성을 과소 평가하는 것을 원하지 않습니다. 한미 모두가 합심하여 조용하고 객관적이며 또한 냉철한 과학적 방식으로 이 백신 문제를 해결하기를 바랍니다. 양심적 미국인 한사람으로서 또한 인간으로서 학자로서 진정한 책임이 있다고 보기 때문입니다.

과학적으로 효과가 입증되지 증거없는 위험한 의약품을 홍보하는 과정에 직접 또는 간접적으로 참여하는 사람들은 모두 중한 법적 처벌 대상이 되어야만합니다. AMCHAM 코리아의 화이자 제약의 현황에 현명하게 대처하는 이 과정에서 모두가 매우 신중해야할것입니다. 미국의 국제적 위상과 AMCHAM의 대한 신뢰가 위태로워질수도 있습니다.

시간을 주셔서 다시한번 감사드리며 조만간 사무실이나 편리한 장소에서 꼭 만나뵐 수 있기를 고대합니다.

「ワシントンに対する目に見えない攻撃」 ジョー·バイデン大統領就任式に付す



エマニュエル パストリッチ 

2021年 1月 20日






残念ながら、私たちには時間があまりありません。 これは4年ごとに繰り返される平凡な選挙でもありません。


とうとう溶岩のように荒くて原始的な政治の変化が起こり、傾斜の面を崩壊させ、巨大な山火事へと広がっています。我々がどのような国家、どのような地球にするかというビジョンを持つなら、我々は瞬間を捉えることができ、放出された力を肯定的な方向に誘導することができます。 溶岩が冷めると固くなるがごとく、堅固な制度の伝統や価値に耐えることができるように、現世代と次の世代が何世紀も享受して耐えなければなりません。








暖かい特権に包まれていたそれらの恵まれたアメリカ人たちは、より偉大な善に貢献する彼らの役割に完全に失敗しました。 彼らはコロナという文明伝染病から解放される可能性のある最小限の機会さえ拒否しました.



彼らには公正な機会が与えられていないだけであり、専門技術を学んだり、物理学と技術を理解したり、学ぶ機会がなかっただけです。 人間としての義務と責任を常に考えながら、彼らは私たちの心の中で最優先にならなければなりません。 私たちは彼らを助け、彼らを保護しなければなりません。 それはすべての政治のための礎石、つまり基礎となるべきです。

我々は我が国が停滞と高潮を繰り返す理念の摩擦や、世界の強力な勢力と毅然とした関係を持つ軍隊内の派閥間の勢力争いに巻き込まれないよう、抵抗しなければなりません。 私たちは、負傷したライオンの周りに集まったハイエナのように、あるいは豚が口をどこにでもほじくるように、低質で醜くなってはいけません。


フランクリン·D·ルーズベルト大統領が言ったように、「私たちは 金融独占、投機、無分別な銀行、階級間の敵対感、部分主義、戦争を利用した暴利という古い平和の敵と闘わなければなりません。 彼らは、アメリカ政府を自分の仕事に単なる服属品とみなし始めました。 われわれは、組織された金で運営される政府は組織暴力団体が操る政府と同じくらい危険だということを自覚すべきです」。






彼らは皆、大金を操られる政治家であり、共和国という棺おけに最後の釘を打つ、このような動きのすべての部分です。 911を目撃して陰で喜んだように。


私はドナルド·トランプ大統領やジョー·バイデン上院議員に対する個人的な敵対感を持ってはいけません。 二人とも壊れて損傷したシステムの下で最善を尽くしました。 しかし、彼らのうち誰も大統領になる資格はなく、どちらも非合法的です。 政府全体が腐敗で崩壊したため、選挙はそもそも合法的に行われるはずがなかったのです。



私は今日国内外のすべての道徳的責任感を持つアメリカ人に、直ちに良心から湧き出る行動を取るよう促しています。 誰も認めてもらえず感謝してもたえない寂しいことをしています。 



米国と国連を抜本的に改革する準備ができた大統領が必要です. 同時に、そのような意志のある市民も必要です。

アメリカの政治的伝統とアメリカの統治の根は民主主義に基盤を置いていますが、その根と精神、根本的なインスピレーションは、1776年のアメリカ革命と1860年の奴隷制度に対する革命にさかのぼるということを思い起こさせていただきたい。 我々の伝統は革命的であり、その伝統が絶対的に重要な時期です。







全くその通りです。 重要な民主主義の過程がまさに革命であり、単に進歩的で保守的な両辺社会間の詐欺性の濃厚な偽りの味、つまりペプシとコカコーラの間の愚かな政治的渦ではないはずです。






a) 最近の金融犯罪行為に関するすべての情報は、公開されます。


b) 犯罪容疑は当然追及され、責任ある人々によって提起されます。 数十兆ドルをつぎ込んだ億万長者を含め、彼らの策略に巨額を投資し、または参加したすべての犯罪人が含まれています。

2) 国民が貨幣と金融(連邦金融理事会)を皮切りに、経済の全体の主権を掌握し、国民が国民のための経済を創出していきます。 グローバル投機の怪物を抹殺する方法に対する計画はたくさんあります。 必要であれば強制施行も可能です。

3) 真実を追求する市民で構成された団体を動員して、透明な言論の新しい形態を設立し、タブーを恐れずRCA victorから出てくる主人の声にだけ服従する犬のように、大企業後援者にだけ全面的に奉仕する腐敗した言論は迅速に代替されるでしょう。

4) 国際倫理市民委員会を形成し、大統領と議会の公正な選出を監督し、市民が参加できるようにし、また、資格を持つすべての候補者が、建設的な提案に対する平等で適切な露出を得られるプロセスを構築するための、全ての大企業の密かな後援や資金は、当然遮断されるでしょう。



実現すべき事項は簡単ですが、それを達成する道は至難でしょう。 私が提示する人類の未来は、国家的、世界的な全ての地球人一人ひとりの参加による闘争を要求します。我々は、その道を共に歩む勇気とインスピレーションを必要とします。理性と論理に基づいた理念を納得する瞬間、自然により多くの意識ある人々が参加することでしょう。

私はこの過程を主宰する臨時の主宰者の役割を提案するわけですが、私は権力や財物への欲はありません。 古代ローマ帝国のシンシナトゥス将軍のように、私は社会改革が完成段階に至れば、ある時点で退く用意があります。

市民の皆さん、このゲームのボールは あなたの手元へ渡りました。 私たちは良心的共和国の再建のため、皆さんと一緒に前に進む準備ができています。 そして、その第一歩を踏み出す者は、まさに皆様です。



In Defense of Donald John Trump

“In Defense of Donald John Trump”

Emanuel Pastreich

February 7, 2021

The lawyers employed by Donald Trump have amassed an impressive pile of arguments to defend him against charges that he incited a mob of his supporters to stage an armed insurrection in an effort to stop the selection of his democratically elected opponent. It is not popular in the fickle fairyland of Washington D.C. to defend Donald Trump, let alone to praise him. But at this sad hour in our nation’s history, that is precisely what must be done.

Sadly, the impeachment trial scheduled for February 9th is unlikely to touch on either the true violations of the Constitution by the Trump administration, nor on Donald Trump’s significant accomplishments in office.

Like the last impeachment trial which focused on ambiguous and amorphous Russian collusion, and left untouched the criminality of the entire executive branch (over which Trump had little control).

This trial has one purpose: to serve as a warning all American politicians that the system is ready to tar and feather them, attack them for things that they did not do, and then take them down with the entire world as a captive audience. 

In other words, the president of the United States in the years ahead will resemble the emperors of the late Roman empire whose reigns rarely lasted for more than a few years: men who were batted around by the generals in the manner that a cat plays with a mouse.    

The sprawling executive branch has as its tentacles consulting firms, military and law enforcement contractors, and a host of lobbying syndicates that assume corruption is a day’s work well done. None of those players are going to be on trial for Valentine’s Day. To blame their sins on Donald Trump, and then present to the world “pay to play” Joe Biden as a progressive breath of fresh air, is true alchemy.

For all his sins, from poor taste in clothing, to the garish interiors at his hotels, to his associations with organized crime and his pandering to audiences who craved the sensational, Trump was a man who simply tried to outsmart the system from within for personal benefit, but also for certain honorable principles. Sadly, he became a prisoner of the system in the process. He is accused of trumped up, or exaggerated, sins, his true mistakes are overlooked and his real accomplishments are ignored.

The case against Donald Trump

Donald Trump, a man who had never served in public office before he became president, a man who knew little about fiscal and social policy, or international relations, a man who was obliged to turn to a handful of political players, and to the cunning multi-billionaires behind the curtains, for advice in his “Battle with the Deep State” –a show perfect for The Sahara—was bathetic and tragic at the same time.  

I dispute, however, the assumption that Trump was inherently less qualified for office than Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama, or Joe Biden, three individuals deeply linked to global finance, weapons manufacturers and to a host of other parasitic organizations hell bent on tearing the United States apart for profit. The fact that such global players interacted with these supposedly noble men through Harvard University’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs did nothing to dilute their criminality. None of these politicians should have ever been considered as candidates for that office.

The recent orgy of media coverage about Trump has nothing to do with his real mistakes, but is rather a cynical ploy to make the Biden administration’s progressive-tinted “Trojan Horse” COVID19 police state seem legitimate and also to create a new enemy for the public imagination: the MAGA-hat wearing ignorant racist Trump supporter.

That last creation is the first step towards tarring anyone who questions the criminal conspiracies that are in full swing today with the term “domestic terrorist” and locking them up if the newly appointed “Reality Czar” sees fit.

Trump’s rise to political power was a result of his success in real estate development, his management of casinos, his speculation in various murky business deals and his effective use of sensationalist television to gain a loyal audience. It is not necessary to explain that one cannot be involved in construction and casinos at that level without being linked to racketeering and money laundering, to prostitution and organized crime.

But the Democrats and Republicans who raked in money from global investment banks that make a killing in the promotion of war (in the name of peace), who push through dangerous free trade agreements, and who participated in the rape of the Federal Reserve, are even more diabolical. The in-your- face obnoxiousness of Trump is more honest than the cultivated, culturally sensitive, ethnically diverse Ivy League graduates who used their empathic image to hide from us the brutal war these global financial institutions wage against ordinary people.

Donald Trump was guilty of violations of the Constitution and of Federal law during the course of his administration that deserve impeachment. Period.

At the same time, however, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barak Obama were all guilty of numerous acts in violation of the Constitution and Federal law worthy of impeachment. If anything, the real question is why American intellectuals have decided to let the bloated, sprawling and putrid executive branch get away with all this institutionalized criminality.  

The Democratic and Republican congressmen who will gather like jackals for the impeachment trial, men and women who looked the other way as global financial powers robbed the Federal Reserve of 10 trillion or more and then had the nerve to say the economic crisis was a result of COVID19, should be on trial too.

Trump’s tragic mistakes

Trump’s decision to run for president can be traced back to the White House Correspondents Dinner on April 30, 2011. He was subject to pointed mockery by Barak Obama who intended to humiliate him in public and destroy his political career.

Trump’s anger was written all over his face because he is not a politician.

Why was Trump so mad?

Personally, I am not convinced that Trump’s “Birther Movement,” that tried to prove that Obama was not an American citizen and that he was a secret Muslim, was either appropriate or accurate. Ultimately, I do not know.

I fear, however, that many Americans do not understand the underlying motivations for that campaign. The strategy was sensationalist, like the pro wrestler at heart that Trump is, but the means of political attack that Trump employed was not entirely his choice.  

Most of the corrupt deals made by the Obama administration with global finance are protected from public scrutiny because the transactions were rendered classified, or because non-disclosure agreements make it impossible to make those crimes public. In many cases, secret law passed by Congress makes the discussion of these corrupt actions illegal. The post-Bush age in America is defined by a politics of the unspeakable.

Trump went after Obama over the birther issue, and after Biden over election fraud, not because it was his necessarily his strongest card, but because it was the only card he was permitted to play, the only thing that the media would report.

It was the attitude of Obama on that evening that riled Trump. Obama, a man parachuted into the 2008 presidential campaign out of nowhere to serve the interests of the super-rich, showed obvious contempt for Trump and his supporters.

Trump wanted to nail the slick Obama for his blatant corruption, but he could not.

When Trump condemned foreign wars openly, he was labeled a budding Nazi by the liberal press. Obama, by contrast, hedged his words about foreign interventions so as to avoid offending General Dynamics and had been awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for embracing American militarism and renouncing his lukewarm critique of the Iraq war.

Running for president as an outsider was the best way to get even, Trump thought to himself, that to become the president who replaced that well-groomed toy of financial elites would be tasty, as the French say “La vengeance est un plat qui se mange froid” (revenge is a dish best served cold).

Trump knew that if he wanted to win the presidency as an outsider, he would have to tap into the anger boiling up over the corruption in Washington D.C., and the elitist politics of Obama. Part of that response had racist overtones, but much of it did not.

Although Trump had some money, he was a small fish in the increasingly decadent Washington milieu. After he drove back to Trump Hotel after that brutal Obama “roast” he thought about which power players he could get on his side who would be able to match the backing of the investment banks that Democrats (and Republicans) relied on to get them over the top in the money game.

He came up with a list of hungry outsiders who were willing to take a risk on his populist rhetoric because they too did not have the political influence that they felt their money deserved. Although there were more, let us identify four important groups of supporters that pushed hard to get Trump on the map, and who did not care about his opposition to free trade or his appeals to the working man.

The four groups, however, did not care about Donald Trump personally, and when he was set up at the end of his presidency to be diagnosed with the bogus “COVID19” and then accused of starting the clown-directed false flag “Capitol Insurrection,” those forces had no interest in helping out.

I suspect that Trump thought that he, like a master surfer, could somehow ride the converging waves that would be unleashed by these powers and drive this “band of rivals” forward so as to achieve something of value while enhancing his own brand.  

The following four groups latched onto Trump as a chance to shake up Washington and get their piece of the pie.

1)   David and Charles Koch

The Koch brothers poured their coal and petroleum billions into funding “libertarian” ideology as a means of hiding the end of the regulation of business under the sheep’s skin of personal “freedom.” The result was a massive increase in pollution and the end of environmental policy in the United States.  

The Koch brothers were remarkably creative. They set up a devious think tank, the Charles Koch Institute, that seduced various “anti-war” intellectuals with its big funding and media exposure, and thereby gave legitimacy to their corporate agenda.

The Koch brothers supported Trump, and introduced him to their representative Mike Pompeo (who had close ties to the Christian right) in return for a promise from Trump to get the government out of the regulation business and to pursue ludicrous policies regarding climate change. The Koch brothers wanted to get the sort of respect in Washington DC that global players like Exxon and BP were receiving and to muscle in on energy policy previously determined by mainstream corporations.

2)   Betsy (Prince) DeVos and Erik Prince

Although the start of Trump’s relationship with the Prince family remains opaque, Betsy (Prince) DeVos, wife of the heir of the Amway fortune, and her brother Erik Prince, CEO of the private mercenary corporation Academi,  lashed on to Trump early on and gave him a big push.

Betsy (Prince) DeVos demanded that she be made Secretary of Education and she used that position to destroy public education as part of a larger plan to both make all education into a for-profit industry and to render much of the population so poorly educated that they were incapable of opposing the corporate takeover of America. The problems in education, however, were a bipartisan effort of the last 30 years and not the creation of Betsy DeVos.

Trump let her do what she wanted with almost no interference.      

Erik Prince demanded a chance to push for the radical privatization of the military that would allow his mercenary groups to get contracts for work previously limited to the military itself, or to the big-time military contractors. Early support for Trump gave Erik carte blanche for extending his mercenary operations around the world, getting into some serious fights with military officers along the way. 

The Princes also linked Trump up with another big player, Robert Mercer, the CEO of Renaissance Technologies. The “silent billionaire” Mercer was backed Steve Bannon’s innovative strategies for stirring up political support through racist and anti-immigrant reporting at his Breitbart News (mixed with a good dose of truth) and he laid the groundwork for Trump’s sudden media takeoff.  

3)   Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson

Donald Trump had links to Israel through his son-in-law Jared Kushner and through interactions with various Zionist businessmen from way back (including ties to Russia), but he did not take any strong stands on Israel policy. He also received support in his campaign from many Americans who were deeply hostile to Israeli influence in Washington D.C. and who demanded an investigation into the 9.11 incident and Israel’s role.

But Trump’s old pal Sheldon Adelson was a man with the deep pockets, the strong connections in Israel, and the strategic mind necessary to put Trump over the top. Adelson is one of the top dogs in casinos globally and was probably one of the people Trump called up early on. He gave his enthusiastic backing and his phone calls made Trump’s bid viable.

Adelson quickly connected Trump with core figures among Christian Zionists like John Hagee who supported the most radical policies of Israel unconditionally and he set up Mike Pompeo (also linked to the Koch brothers) to be a central policy player. Adelson probably also played a role in introducing to Trump another rising Christian Zionist, Vice President Mike Pence.

Christian Zionist churches across the United States play a critical role in delivering votes and raising money for conservative causes. Trump’s willingness to embrace the extreme demands of these churches allowed the ministers of these churches to back him in spite of his multiple marriages and his lax and indulgent values.

Adelson did not spend those hours at his rolodex for nothing. He got an administration (if not a Trump) that blindly embraced Israel, and granted full support in any Israeli military conflict with Iran.

4)   The “War with China” Lobby

The promotion of military conflicts and the sales of overpriced weapons systems is an exquisitely bipartisan show and even the peacemakers cannot function in Congress without a thumbs up from the big boys. For a total outsider with an unimpressive reputation, and no political experience, there was not much room at the trough for Trump.

A bit of sniffing around, however, revealed that there was one group in the military industrial complex that was extremely unhappy in spite of the bloated defense budget and who were looking for someone to champion their unpopular cause during the Obama years.

That group consisted of the weapons manufactures who supply the big heavy equipment like aircraft carrier groups, fighter planes, nuclear weapons and missile defense systems.

Donald’s Rumsfeld’s “War on Terror” had introduced the dangerous concept of a “revolution in warfare” and much of their bulky hardware was viewed as outdated by a new generation of security experts.

The new focus on intelligence fattened up their rivals and cost them some big military contracts as the Pentagon increasingly mimicked the CIA.  

In addition, a push by new upstarts like Boston Robotics to lock them out permanently and make satellites, drones, robots and AI the focus for military spending had them seeing red.  

Although these contractors liked Russia as an adversary, only a massive Pacific War with China scenario could justify the piles of hardware that they wanted to produce. No surprise that these groups were pushed over the edge when Obama proposed military-military cooperation with China, including inviting China to participate in the RIMPAC naval exercises in Hawaii.

The “war with China” faction is not a specific corporation. They are large sections of Northrop Grumman, Lockeed Martin, General Dynamics, Raytheon and other contractors who stood to benefit from a push for big ships and high-tech fighter planes, for the tools for massive amphibious landings. At the same time, companies also had units who are not interested in that market. 

Trump offered to dump the one-China policy of Nixon in the dustbin of history and to adopt aggressive actions in East Asia that would kick of a “new Cold War.” This group fell in line behind Trump and gave him the security credentials that he lacked.  

Trump’s Achievements

Looking back on the four years of Trump, much of the damage attributed to him was rather the product of institutional decay that was sped up by the mind-numbing spiritual gangrene which infected America after the 9.11 incident. Trump must take responsibility for allowing criminal figures to run the show, to strip the government of expertise and to push for war with China and Iran, but Trump was most certainly not the mastermind.

He felt as he was under house arrest himself at the White House when the big boys got into fights—and he was keenly aware that the powers that be were more than happy to throw him under the bus—as the ultimately did—to achieve their goals.    

And yet, as foolhardy as Trump’s bid to use these outcasts from the DC banquet of spoils as a means to take control of the Republican Party, and then topple the corrupt system from within may have been, the following efforts suggest that at some level Trump maintained a commitment to setting things right, and that he tried to address issues that other politicians were afraid to touch.

The following actions will not be mentioned at the impeachment trial, but they should be.

1)   Commitment to 9.11 truth

In his interview with Fox 5 News on September 11, 2001, Donald Trump made comments that opened up serious doubts concerning the 9/11 conspiracy theory that Arab terrorists holding papercutters took down three skyscrapers with two planes. Trump continued address this issue in private and he was not afraid to maintain close ties with 9/11 truth activists.

His willingness, as sitting president, to tolerate, and even to encourage, the discussion of the scientific problems with the official story was risky for his health and it alienated him from mainstream politicians, Democrat and Republican. His willingness to take on this impossible task represented a sincere loyalty to his supporters—a solidarity that that he never gave up even as he hobnobbed with the rich and powerful.

2) Demand for the release of classified documents on the Kennedy Assassination

Donald Trump used executive orders in October of 2017 in an attempt to force the CIA and the FBI to release all remaining classified documents concerning the Kennedy assassination of 1963. The criminal conspiracy in global finance, industry and government to kill Kennedy is obvious to anyone who has looked into the case even superficially. Yet the Federal Government still refuses to release the remaining documents that will make clear for the world what happened, and exactly who was responsible for what.

Trump’s push to get the papers released was not a favor for historians and conspiracy buffs.

The manner in which global finance was able to murder a president in cold blood when he tried to restore accountability to intelligence and to the military produced a slow-growing cancer in the executive branch that has festered ever since. Many institutional problems, such as the inability of any president to subject the Pentagon or the CIA to a meaningful audit, can be traced back to that sad day in November, 1963.

In effect, every American president knows that he can killed with impunity like Kennedy, or publicly humiliated, if he or she dares to hold to the Constitution or to challenge the shadow government of finace.

Trump’s actions were brave, and even inspiring. You can be sure that neither Bernie Sanders nor Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, darlings of the “left,” will never dare to make such a demand.  

3) Attacking the use of immigration to destroy the lives of American workers   

The vicious attacks (in government and in the streets) on immigrants that were encouraged by the rhetoric pouring forth from the mouth of Donald Trump were cruel and irrational.  Such actions should be condemned. 

But we can walk and chew gum at the same time as citizens. As offensive and divisive as Trump’s rhetoric was, we must recognize two critical facts: 1) a series of classified directives and secret laws prevented Trump from talking directly about how the immigration crisis was linked to actions of corporations and investment banks; 2) his Democratic opponents were intimately involved in implementation of immigration as a weapon for class warfare but they were never called on this point by so-called “progressive” public intellectuals.  

The immigration rush from Central and South America to the United States was a result of the plot of multinational to destroy the local economies of those countries and to devastate agriculture and crafts through a ruthless free trade, free investment scheme combined with cash payments to politicians to play stupid.

The working people of Latin America did not have any choice but to try to go to the United States.

At the same time, multinational banks and corporations used immigration policy as part of a strategy to destroy the economic foundations of life for the American worker, rendering him a helpless pawn in their push for a new form of slavery. The Democrats were silent about this greater conspiracy and Trump was right to denounce this deliberate policy to destroy America through immigration.

Secret law and classified directives made it impossible to discuss these brutal policies in the American media. When Trump took the unusual step of actually addressing class warfare via immigration he was forced by circumstances to describe it using caricatures that appealed to racist ideology.  

He deserves credit for drawing attention to the issue.

4) Opposition to the free trade ideology  

Trump was the only candidate in the 2016 presidential campaign to address directly the manner in which the promotion of “free trade” regimes have been employed by the rich to destroy the economic foundations of life for Americans.

He was roundly condemned for undermining America’s commitment to global trade agreements and to financial treaties. Conservatives, progressives—and everyone in between—were happy to take a stab. But as inflammatory as his rhetoric may have been, Trump identified a criminal conspiracy of the rich around the world to create economic misery through trade.

The progressive Democratic politicians who claimed to be concerned about working people rarely hesitated to vote for free trade agreements. They pretended that these agreements would help ordinary people when they knew full-well that they were for the benefit of multinational corporations. Trump    stood virtually alone in condemning the trade scam and he deserves credit for his efforts.

5) Open opposition to the mask mandate, to the economic lockdown and to the vaccine regime in the name of COVID19

Donald Trump made numerous attempts to question from the office of the president the promotion of the bogus COVID19 pandemic as a national disaster, the insistence on the mandatory wearing of masks without any scientific basis and the nonsensical demands for an economic lockdown on the economy and the shutting down of public buildings and of schools. He was one of the few politicians willing to take such a position and as a result he gained support in the presidential election from African Americans and other groups who would normally never have supported a Republican.

When Trump questioned the need for the dangerous COVID19 “vaccines” promoted by multinational pharmaceutical corporations like Pfizer that contain destructive mRNA, and a variety of tracers and sensors embedded in DARPA hydrogel, his stand was heroic.

Although Trump took an anti-science stance when he questioned climate change in response to the demands of the Koch brothers, he was 100% supported by the science, and by numerous scientists, in the case of COVID19.

The result? Trump was subject to attacks from every side in the corrupt media for his commonsense statements. The darlings of the Democratic “left” rushed to embrace the corporate puppet Anthony Fauci when he attacked Trump for not shutting down the economy and he promoted these dangerous “vaccines.”

Moreover, when Trump was forced to endorse vaccines, he gave speeches in which he spoke of a “warp drive” project to develop them in months that would normally have taken years or decades.

Trump praised vaccines in a deliberately exaggerated manner as a means of telegraphing the truth to the people about the true nature of vaccines over the barriers to the dissemination of information erected in Washington D.C. Such a move was ingenious and brave—but mocked in the media.

6) Support for an open discussion about criminal conspiracies in the United States

The transformation of progressive sources of journalism like the Nation and Counterpunch into puppet shows where corporate power dresses up its fictions in the used clothing of the American leftist tradition is a tragedy of epic proportions. We witness a pathetic discourse on politics in which the “left” acts as a trained lapdog unable to speak about any of the real conspiracies.

It is to Donald Trump’s credit that he had the bravery to actively engage in an open discussion with those demanding an investigation into the criminal conspiracies taking place in America, and that he encouraged a fundamental questioning of the role of government and of corporations.

Specifically, Trump was attacked from all corners for his connections to believers in the “cult” of QAnon.

QAnon is a insider who leaks information about criminal actions at the highest levels of government. If you do a search for QAnon, you will find articles that condemn him as a fraudulent conspiracy peddler, that denounce his racist and isolationist positions, but you will not see QAnon’s texts quoted so that the reader can judge for himself.

None of the newspapers even gives the website address of QAnon: qanon.pub. Wikipedia dismisses QAnon, saying,

“QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a secret cabal of Satan-worshipping, cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against former U.S. president Donald Trump, who has been fighting the cabal. According to U.S. prosecutors, QAnon is commonly called a cult.”

The assumption that mainstream Democrats (and Republicans) cannot be linked to prostitution and pedophilia is easily proven false. For that matter, no mainstream politician has tried to discredit QAnon by launching international scientific investigations into the claims he makes about the 9/11 incident or the COVID19 campaign.

Significant inaccuracies in QAnon are a problem which can only be addressed through an open effort to identify which parts are accurate. The greater problem is the failure of most intellectuals to condemn the blatant fictions peddled by the New York Times and Washington Post.

In any case, Trump’s willingness as president to take on massive conspiracies is a necessary first step, and much to his credit. 

7) Questioning of the legitimacy of the election

We are told over and over again that Biden won the election in a fair and transparent manner and that Trump’s efforts to contest the election are selfish and corrupt. This narrative is a massive fraud.

It is unclear who won that election, or whether it was an election at all. In any case, we should be delighted that Trump is the first candidate who was willing to stand up against the massive manipulation of the vote by corporate powers. We can only wish that Al Gore or John Kerry, or Bernie Sanders, or many others, had had the guts to stand up and refuse to accept the bogus elections that are forced on us.

The 2020 election was fixed from the start. The financial powers that run the United States put out a series of classified directives, and had the Congress pass secret laws that determined who the candidates would be and what topics could, or could not, be discussed.

It is no secret that the Biden camp used every dirty trick in their toolbox to secure the Democratic nomination, including manipulating the vote in the primaries to beat Bernie Sanders.

Why would anyone assume then that the Biden team would not manipulate the vote in a similar manner in the general election—especially in light of the support he received from neoconservatives close to the Bush clan?

In egregious cases like the sudden swing to Biden in Pennsylvania, progressives concerned with the democratic process should have demanded an international investigation that would have documented in a transparent manner the details of the vote. No Democrats have called for even reinstatement of exit polls.

It was to his credit, and not a sign of his selfishness, that Trump refused to concede to the election.

The real crime is that the progressives refused to demand a scientific investigation into the results of the election, rather than throw themselves at the feet of Biden as if he were the reincarnation of Robert Kennedy.  

8) Condemnation of endless foreign wars

You know you are in the “Twilight Zone” when progressives who fall all over themselves to condemn Trump for racism and war mongering then fall silent when he, as a sitting president of the United States, condemned the criminal “forever wars” of the last twenty years and attacked the for-profit procurement system for weapons.

Trump comments on September 7, 2020 condemning foreign wars, and denouncing war profiteers, went beyond anything you will find coming out of the mouths of Democrats—and they were not the only such public statement by him. He stated:  

“With Biden, shipped away our jobs, threw open our borders and sent our youth to fight in these crazy endless wars. And it’s one of the reasons the military—I’m not saying the military is in love with me, the soldiers are. The top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs, that make the planes, that make everything else stay happy. But we are getting out of the endless wars.”

He ended his comments,

“Let’s bring our soldiers back home. Some people don’t like to come home. Some people like to continue to spend money. One cold-hearted globalist betrayal after another. That’s what it was.”

The entirety of the speech was theatre, and it was not entirely accurate, but Trump managed to slip past the censors a critique of the broken system that no other politician was able to do.

In fact, Trump’s comments are the first attack by a sitting president on that systematic corruption since President Eisenhauer’s condemnation of the “military industrial complex” in his farewell address of January 17, 1961 (almost exactly 60 years ago). 

Obama, or Harris, for all their multiculturalism, are incapable of making such a statement because they rose to political power on the backs of private equity and venture capital, organizations that derive much of their cash from weapons sales, the promotion of corporation-centered “free trade” agreements and the tearing down all barriers to global capital’s rampage around the world.

Furthermore, Trump’s own farewell address was pointedly aimed at ordinary soldiers and critical of the political generals who use the military as a means to amass wealth.

His attempt to bond with ordinary soldiers, and to oppose the military profiteers, appears to be a sincere sentiment, and not a political posture.

9) Call to Nationalize the Federal Reserve

Donald Trump made a serious effort to bring the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States under the control of the Treasury Department and to reign in the use of American debt by global finance for its own purposes.

How successful that effort to control the creation of money was is difficult to evaluate because the media is controlled by the same financial institutions that dominate the Federal Reserve system. The reports (both pro and anti Trump) are murky and obscure.

Moreover, because financial policy in the Federal Reserve, and in the Treasury Department, is increasingly rendered as classified, it is impossible to have a serious public discussion on fiscal policy.  

Trump’s decision to bring in Larry Fink, the CEO of the multi-trillion dollar investment firm BlackRock, to play a central role in the Federal Reserve Bank was at best a Pyrrhic victory.

Trump supporters claim that at least the Rothschilds no longer control the Federal Reserve. I honestly do not know which reports to believe about the status of the Federal Reserve today.

What is clear, however, is that the theft of trillions from the Federal Reserve last year was a reality, and that Trump did try, perhaps unsuccessfully, to do something.  

The upcoming show trial of Donald Trump  

Trump paid a price for talking about war profiteering and other criminal conspiracies during the election. He was suddenly diagnosed as positive for COVID19 on October 11 and his campaign was shut down at precisely the moment that was starting to make a discussion of criminal conspiracies central to the campaign.

But that was just the beginning of the attack. He was painted in the corporate media as a terrorist leader, like Osama Bin Laden, who incited his racist followers to commit an “armed insurrection.” But the occupation of the Capitol was more of a Laurel and Hardy show than a serious attack or insurrection and multiple reports have raised serious doubts as to what actually transpired. Needless to say, no progressives are asking for an international investigation.

Trump’s lawyers will not be able to address any of the unfair attacks on him by the media during the impeachment trial, nor will they be able to present evidence concerning his contributions to restoring the rule of law in the United States.

Nor will those lawyers be able to demonstrate that the criminal actions that took place during Trump’s administration were for the most part the fault of an executive branch that can no longer be controlled by the president. They cannot describe how Trump was set up for this show trial as a means to draw attention away from greater crimes.

All their efforts must go into defending Trump from the accusation that he masterminded the violent armed insurrection at the Capitol intended to stop the election of Joe Biden as president.

In other words, the door has been opened by this trial to using the full force of the Federal government to treat anyone who questions the vaccine regime, or demand inquiries into conspiracies like 9/11, as a domestic terrorist.

We have an obligation, not just for the sake of Donald Trump, but for the future of our children, to openly condemn this blatantly criminal effort to cook up an “insurrection” and then to blame it on the president.

Trump is part professional wrestler, part gameshow host, part mobster. I would not buy a used car from him, but one senses a certain loyalty and decency in him at the same time that he plays a ruthless political game.

He has the humanity and the personal attachments of the gangster. Perhaps Trump was not meant to be president, but he is more transparent than the Democrats who pray in secret at the altar of global finance.  

No matter what you may think of his garish taste, his multiple marriages, his sensationalist statements, or of his supporters, Trump took numerous steps to pursue the truth that put him at risk and that deserve our grudging respect.
