That clue is embedded in a statement Trump made in his inaugural address:
“We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world… We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow.”
Is Trump absolutely serious?
Does he intend, in this respect, to follow in the footsteps of Ron Paul, who helped pave the way for Trump’s success by impacting millions of Americans on the subject (among others) of American Empire and foreign conquest?
Does Trump intend to “stay at home” and abandon the long-standing policy of making war and policing the planet and toppling regimes and using the CIA to create frontiers for US corporations?
Does he intend to go up against the military-industrial complex?
Will he try to sideline slimy neocons?
Phi Beta Iota: Trump has picked a Secretary of State who can wage page, and a Secretary of Defense who can bring America’s forces home and begin the long-neglected ten-year process of building, virtually from scratch, a home-based military with global reach: a 450-ship Navy, a long-haul Air Force, and a 3 million soldier Army with no contractors. What Trump has not done is put into place a strategy for unifying the country (an Electoral Reform Act), educating the country (a Trump Channel with an Open Source Agency), and neutralizing all those who are with malice aforethought funding protests and de-legitimizing statements as well as litigation based on lies (e.g. about the Russians funding the Trump campaign) toward impeachment. If Donald Trump does not get his counterintelligence together on this front, all his potential will be for naught.
