6 Stars Presidential Transitions Matter and President Trump Blew It — With Follow-on Consequences
Although I am a huge fan of President Trump — I wrote the first article on how he could win (“Counter-Coup: How Trump Can Win,” CounterPunch, 14 August 2018) and went on to write the 30 piece Trump Revolution Series, I also believe in learning from the mistakes of others — this book has a great deal to offer the next President.
Early on in the book we learn that then candidate Trump did not want a presidential transition team and refused to assign campaign funds for it. When he was persuaded by Chris Christie that he needed one and Christie offered to raise funds separately, Trump assented, only to blow a fuse when he learned Christie had raised $9 million.
QUOTE (21): “Trump was apoplectic, actually yelling, You’re stealing my money! You’re stealing my fucking money! What the fuck is this?”
The book offers one capstone understanding and five insights that every presidential candidate should take deeply to heart:
5 Star Insights Into How and Why Trump Won — Complements Our Towns
The authors combine experience as a national political analyst for reputable media organizations with national-scope Republican advertising and opinion research. The book offers deep insights into how and why Donald Trump captured so many “Reagan Democrats” at the same time that he attracted many eligible non-voters back into the election process.
Some books are so far out of my personal ability to digest in detail that I very rapidly convert to my scanning mode with one big question that I ask on every page: does this book and its author pass the smell test with me, and would I, if President, want to trust this author to help implement his ideas without necessarily understanding them in detail?
Not only is the answer for this book and this author a resounding YES, but on pages 31-32 I have a note, “Holy Shit! Could DT be doing all this?” Those two pages outline ten great deals that Donald Trump could be pursuing: peace, jobs, sound-money, Glass-Steagall, federalist, regulatory, liberty, health-care, fiscal, and governance.
I received a PDF copy from the author, with whom I share many concerns about and hopes for the Trump Presidency, and am truly delighted with all that he has done. As a former spy who also co-created the Marine Corps Intelligence Intelligence Activity and went on to found the Open Source Intelligence discipline, I deal every day with complex nuanced topics that I find very difficult to explain to normal people.
This author has done a BRILLIANT job, a PATRIOTIC job, a LIFE-ENHANCING and GOD-BLESSED job, of laying out both the threats to the Trump Presidency and to America, and the threats and possibilities for resurrecting America and saving it from the Deep State I know so well.
At the age of 65, with a lifetime of both experience across the secret world including nine years as a clandestine case officer (spy) for the Central Intelligence Agency, and a lifetime of education and reading including 2,500 reviews across 98 categories at Amazon (making me the top Amazon reviewer for non-fiction), I have never been more shocked, more disgusted, more outraged, than by this book.
Right Idea, Wrong Title — All Wars Are A Huge Success for the Bankers
I received this book as part of my registration for a 3 June 2017 conference on the Deep State, and I have the same problem with the book that I had with the conference: the author’s don’t “get” that every war is a massive success for the Rothschilds, the Vatican, the City of London, Wall Street, and the banks that fund all sides in every war. The bankers and the Khazarian mafia that uses the Freemasons (most unwitting) to dominate their “world order.”
Truthful, Useful, Good Read for Any Patriotic Citizen, May 28, 2017
Sarah Westall –whom I know from her superb Business Game Changes video series — tells it like it is in Syria. The book gives you more than just the Syrian perspective, it also illustrates how the US Government (in our name and without Article 1 Constitutional authority) is creating and aligning itself with the most brutal regimes in human history, notably Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The U.S. is at risk of creating and backing a 2nd holocaust; the entire region will be ethnically cleansed, including Christians and moderate Muslims, by Islamic extremists.
