Kissinger's Take On Trump

FROM A FRIEND

Henry Kissinger's , take on Trump.

Kissinger is now 96 years old. Recently, Henry Kissinger did an interview and said very amazing things regarding President Trump. He starts with:

"Donald Trump is a phenomenon that foreign countries haven't seen before!"

The former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger gives us a new understanding of President Donald Trump's foreign policy and predicts its success:

"Liberals and all those who favor (Hillary) Clinton will never admit it. "They will never admit that he is the one true leader. The man is doing changes like never before and does all of it for the sake of this nation's people. After eight years of tyranny, we finally see a difference."

Kissinger knows it and he continues with:

"Every country now has to consider two things:

One, their perception that the previous president, or the outgoing president, basically withdrew America from international politics, so that they had to make their own assessments of their necessities. "And secondly, that there is a new president who's asking a lot of unfamiliar questions. And because of the combination of the partial vacuum and the new questions, one could imagine that something remarkable and new emerges out of it."

Then Kissinger puts it bluntly: "Trump puts America and its people first. This is why people love him and this is why he will remain in charge for so long. There is not a single thing wrong with him, and people need to open their eyes." When he boasts that he has a "bigger red button" than Kim Jung Un does, he so transcends the mealy-mouthed rhetoric of the past, thereby forcing a new recognition of American power.

Kissinger once wrote:

"The weak grow strong by effrontery Ė The strong grow weak through inhibition!" No sentence better captures the U.S.-North Korea relationship.

Trump is discarding the inhibitions and calling the bluff on North Korea's effrontery:

His point is that the contrast of American retreat under Obama and its new assertion of power under Trump creates a new dynamic that every one of our allies and of our enemies must consider.

Our allies grew complacent with Obama's passivity and now are fearful due to Trump's activism. And they must balance the two in developing their policies:

They realize that the old assumptions, catalyzed by Bush 43's preoccupation with Iraq and Obama's refusal to lead are obsolete. So, Trump is forcing a new calculus with a new power behind American interests. Those ó here and abroad ó who rode the old apple cart worry about it being toppled.

But, as Kissinger so boldly stated:

"Trump is the one true leader in world affairs, and he is forcing policy changes that put America first!ď
This is the most accurate statement of what the American Citizens who live outside of the swamp want and expect from their government.

I like the list of 13 things that I, as a senior American citizen, want. Trump is at least talking about issues that most Americans are concerned about.

My mantra about Trump is this:

Truthfully, we are in agreement with most of what he says. We are getting older and our tickers aren't what they used to be, but what matters is that he covers most of the 13 things we as seniors want, at least I do for sure:

1. Hillary: held accountable for her previous wrongs!
2. Put "GOD" back in America!
3. Borders: Closed or tightly guarded!
4. Congress: On the same retirement and healthcare plans as everybody else.
5. Congress: Obey its own laws NOW!
6. Language: English!
7. Culture: Constitution and the Bill of Rights!
8. Drug-Free: Mandatory Drug Screening before and during Welfare!
9. Freebies: NONE to Non-Citizens!
10. Budget: Balance the ---- thing!
11. Foreign Countries: Stop giving them our money! Charge them for our help! We need it here.
12. Term limits for congress
And most of all.
13. ďRESPECT OUR MILITARY AND OUR FLAG AND OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT!"

We the people are coming!

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Those are fake quotes.

Why do you keep going back to the same sources, and propagating their stuff, even after learning that they publish lies?

It's like keeping going back to a poisoned well.

Well, some of it is fake, and some is true.

He did say this:


Quote:
“Donald Trump is a phenomenon that foreign countries haven’t seen.”
Quote:
"Every country now has to consider two things:

One, their perception that the previous president, or the outgoing president, basically withdrew America from international politics, so that they had to make their own assessments of their necessities. "And secondly, that there is a new president who's asking a lot of unfamiliar questions. And because of the combination of the partial vacuum and the new questions, one could imagine that something remarkable and new emerges out of it."
I couldn't verify if he ever said this:

Quote:
"The weak grow strong by effrontery – The strong grow weak through inhibition!"
He didn't say this:

Quote:
"Liberals and all those who favor (Hillary) Clinton will never admit it. "They will never admit that he is the one true leader. The man is doing changes like never before and does all of it for the sake of this nation's people. After eight years of tyranny, we finally see a difference."
Or this:

Quote:
"Trump puts America and its people first. This is why people love him and this is why he will remain in charge for so long. There is not a single thing wrong with him, and people need to open their eyes." When he boasts that he has a "bigger red button" than Kim Jung Un does, he so transcends the mealy-mouthed rhetoric of the past, thereby forcing a new recognition of American power.
Or this:

Quote:
"Trump is the one true leader in world affairs, and he is forcing policy changes that put America first!“

Here's what he actually said:


Quote:
Kissinger, Dec. 18, 2016: Donald Trump is a phenomenon that foreign countries havenít seen.
So it is a shocking experience to them that he came into office, at the same time, extraordinary opportunity. And I believe he has the possibility of going down in history as a very considerable president, because every country now has two things to consider, one, their perception that the previous president or the outgoing president basically withdrew America from international politics, so that they had to make their own assessment of their necessities, and, secondly, that here is a new president who is asking a lot of unfamiliar questions.
And because of the combination of the partial vacuum and the new questions, one could imagine that something remarkable and new emerges out of it. Iím not saying it will. Iím saying itís an extraordinary opportunity.
In this interview on CBS "Face The Nation"

Yes, Henry and I are good buddies. From our days at Harvard. (Just kidding.)

No, I just Googled it. You can just copy some of the text and paste it into the Google search bar. And if it's fake, it's likely to come up on fact checking websites.

Did you get that "stuff" on Facebook?

That's a pretty common formula they use.

On both sides by the way.



Look, some of this "stuff" is blatant propaganda, but most of it is just the nature of social media. It just like the old exercise of telling a story to one person in a group then having that person repeat it to the next, and so on, and inevitably the last person in line hears a very different version from the original. These things get posted, re-posted, interpreted, commented on, and so on, until the truth becomes convoluted, and take on a life of their own.
