    This conversation takes place in a stratosphere where a kind of Utopian
    outcome is dreamily hoped for. The daily reality on the ground around the
    orange one is a creeping degradation of US constitutional rights and
    responsibilities. The intensity of privatization of everything and the
    resulting profiteering of outsourceing – social security, healthcare, The
    VA, military, policing, infrastructure etc. – is so satisfying to the
    controlling congress that the Heritage Foundation would be drunk with
    success. When the backlash by True Believers from being betrayed comes it
    will not be a pretty thing. There will be little time for cozy speculating
    on foreign policy – except to try to find out what the asylum keepers have
    done overseas while the rest of the country is distracted with mere
    survival.

    I am fascinated by the fact Trump is the president. Never in my lifetime
    have I seen an outside the two party system take the presidency. I don’t
    know that it happened in the 20th century at all so this is going to be the
    biggest fight for power(people vs the machine) the US has ever seen I
    believe.

    Trump priorities is economy, trade and jobs, illegal immigration and
    defeating ISIS quickly as possible. He is not anti NATO, he is concerned we
    are defending all these countries, mostly on our dime and we are 20
    trillion in debt. Trump and the biggest part of the people have no desire
    for more war for special interests, especially with Russia. How would that
    be any good for the U.S people and Russian people, let alone the world?
    Trump won’t be able to tear up NATO and abolish it, but it can be
    modernized, and for Russia’s part, they just need to recognize the NATO
    boundaries and there should be no problems.
    Globalism is in collapse.

    you people are too far away to see what’s going on in the United States
    Trump is a disaster if you only rely on cable news to do your own opinion
    then you are just as misled as everybody else

    let me put a crack in your Rose Colored Glasses with two words: Thatcher
    and Rasputin. Trump proposals for infrastructure renewal is that exploiting
    Americans who will be taxed every time they use a road, a bridge, Whatever
    by private interest that will profit off of Trump presidency. American
    citizens will have fewer social benefits than ever.
    Second you did not mention Trump’s closest advisor is a man comprable to
    Rasputin. his name is Steve Bannon. he is the Nationalist that you claim
    does not exist. if you look at Trump as an individual without looking at
    his closest advisors: his son-in-law who is totally a businessman and
    Bannon , a white nationalist then you have no comprehension of what is
    going on here. wondering how many weeks before your tune changes from give
    Trump a chance to what have these Americans done to the world now

    left vs right Narrative of “old balls” DC insiders. They keep referring to
    trump as a republican. He ran as an independent on the Republican ticket.
    He got literally no help or his party or big corporate monies..because of
    all the presidential executive orders ,he can use the same power against
    the DC toxic Culture …..

    I posted the following comment on this topic at RT: “You can not separate
    neoconservatism from zionism.” That comment was removed almost immediately
    on RT Crosstalk. Most attempts to point the finger at zionist and jewish
    mischief in the foreign policy of America are almost always suppressed on
    RT

    “Like Obama did”? So you voted for Obama and his next of kin, Clinton, and
    NOW you deny Trump the right to do what YOUR PICK did? Where do you get off
    playing the deck like that?

    these public servants,democrats or republicans are paid to work for you and
    achieve the best interests for each and everyone of you.notice how these
    public servants are destroying and stealing ,all that your parents and
    grand parents and great grand parents,worked ,payed tax and sacrificed, is
    being spent on the stupid policies and wasting opportunities to bring your
    nation together. why ? self interest, self righteous and self opinions.
    slavery is alive and well. if you are working just to get by, then we are
    all being cheated, mistreated and divided. 8 years of trying to introduce
    legislation and the republicans voted against all policy. not one policy
    was agreed too. all that money, all that opportunity , all that time.
    corruption is a global reality and all peoples from around the world are
    being deceived by it. its a political scandal and crime. 2016 make the
    change.

    trump allows the jewish terrorsit zionists who did uss liberty, lavon
    affair and 9-11 to go around free and run the country and kisses up to
    judeo facism of aipac, wheres the peace, theres only crime. trump is right
    iran is a terrorist country that lied about wmds in iraq but so did the
    zionist israeli judeo terrorists!

    I love watching RT to see trump supporters clamor and climb on board. If
    you are a bit more thoughtful, it’s worth watching if only to see why the
    lumpen proles whine about the lamestream media. Assumptions underlay the
    most of the commentary. Tolerance is good. All men are created equal. Women
    may speak among men. Nationalism is an artificial construct. Freedom is
    rare and fragile baton passed from one good person to another.
    The truthy media assumes NATO is an offensive organ choking Russia. Ukraine
    ,Syria, South China Sea are Free, fair, and oppressed by a hegemon. The
    nuanced approach to islam in Chechnya. Putin is unhappy with Erdogan. The
    world would be a better place if trump drew back from the people he
    surrounds himself with. What a struggle to eschew schadenfreude.

    Trump is a Zionist puppet, His own Son’s words expose the real agenda
    being the farce that is Donald Trump’s candidacy. The pieces of the puzzle
    are all falling into place now and we can get a clear picture of just what
    and whom is behind the election campaign of Donald Trump. We knew Trump was
    being financed and heavily supported by the Zionists when Sheldon Adelson
    spoke out in support and gave Trump a huge campaign donation. Now his son
    has made it even clearer that Trump is working for the Zionists by telling
    us that it was the Iran nuke deal that spurred his orange buffoon of a
    father to start his most farcical of presidential candidacies. Israel and
    the Zionists were absolutely furious when the Iran deal was signed,
    Netanyahu almost went berserk, spewing all kinds of insane rhetoric.Unable
    to stop the deal, it now looks like the Zionists are trying to destroy it
    by injecting Trump into US politics; when Trump says things like “my number
    one priority is to dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran” he is really
    saying ‘the number one task I have been given by my Zionist controllers is
    to act in Israel’s best interests by destroying the Iranian nuke
    deal’.Trump needs to end this election campaign not in the oval office, but
    in a cell along with all the other treasonous servants of Israel such
    as his financial backer Adelson and Rita Katz, the arch liar of the ISIS
    war. Trump launched presidential campaign to fight Iran deal Last
    country IN “axis of evil” list From The American Empire Irak-Saddam
    Hoessein killed Venezuela-Hugo Chávez killedLibië-Moammar
    al-Qadhafi killedSyrië- destroyed, divided It, has become a symbol for
    the horrors of WAR that the Us and Western allies puppet state. If the
    russian did NOT intervene MOSSAD ORE CIA= ISIS already killed Bashar
    al-Assad will trump destroy Iran for israel WILL HE spell the end the
    Ayatollahs And The Republic of Iran?Trump launched presidential campaign

    Meet the Jews in Donald Trump’s inner circle Trump’s selection of Stephen
    Bannon as his chief strategist is yet another sign of the Israeli control
    of Trump – Bannon has long been a stooge of Benjamin Netanyahu, and will
    serve as Trump’s handler, relaying instructions from Netanyahu, in effect,
    Bannon is the strings that connect puppet Trump to puppetmaster Netanyahu.
    US Media Reports of anti-Trump protests are unreliable at best While there
    have been many reports across the mainstream and alternative medias about
    anti-Trump protests breaking out across the USA, we simply have no way of
    knowing the truth as we know that all of the media is now utterly
    infiltrated and controlled.Jewish Press: The Six Jewish Companies that
    Own 96% of the World’s Media .1.8 Million Votes Behind, Trump Goes Neocon
    while voters stats suggesting “hack” are suppressed. Most Americans Go to
    Polls in History But Voting at Lowest Level Since 1996? You would have to
    be a real moron to believe voter turnout was really so low. Clearly the low
    turnout being reported is the result of the Russian hacking to remove
    millions of votes that Gordon has been writing about.

    Let’s not mistake a businessman’s attempt to differentiate himself in the

    with his ability to make any significant changes in what Ron Paul has
    dubbed the deep state.

    Warmongering towards Russia here in Poland? Nah, we’re not suicidal, that’s
    just BS from the media and the pressure of the elites from the west towards
    Poland. But the vast majority of people just want to live in peace,
    including peace with Russia.

    If Turkey continues to fund and supply terrorists in Syria they’re going to

    United States.

    re the Western MSM. These people are finished. The alternative independent
    media has eaten their lunch and cleaned their clock. They are a joke. They
    are now a joke and a punchline with a majority of people. Globalist
    banksters are living on borrowed time. They threw everything they had at
    Trump, including some 2 Billion just on Hillary’s campaign and billions
    more wasted in media air time.
    These people are going to find themselves on defense more and more as
    people awaken to their agenda.

    The only person who is anywhere near honest on this panel is Mark. And he

    It’s funny to watch you tip-toe around the elephant in the room. Yes, the
    Saudis and Qatar, and Turkey are a factor in Syria but without the
    pipelines running through Syria, Iraq, and Iran they are going nowhere,
    neither as producers of energy resources nor as transit countries. There
    are simply too many barriers for them to succeed without the support of the
    US. However, the elephant in the room is Israel and Israel has much bigger
    political power in Washington than the Saudis. Israel wants Syria
    destroyed, just like it wanted to neutralize all the Arab countries that
    opposed its illegal annexation of the occupied Arab territories.
    A small detail worth noticing – Trump has contacted and talked with Israeli
    officials already, and today (Nov 22) we read about the delegation of the
    Polish government in Israel. This delegation includes premier Szydlo,
    foreign minister Waszczykowski, and defence minister Macierewicz – the two
    most hawkish and aggressively anti-Russian politicians in the Polish
    cabinet. Something is going on. I think that Trump is using Israel to warn
    the Polish government against any provocations involving Russia that could
    take place before his inauguration. Also, to stop aggressive anti-Russian
    rhetoric.

    With respect to Angela Merkel – she should welcome the fact that the US
    under Trump will possibly withdraw from active involvement in Ukraine and
    from supporting its war-mongering cronies in Poland. Merkel has competed
    with the US for control over these two countries and would like the space
    for herself and for her own games. However, she may be seriously afraid
    that Russia will step into this vacuum before Germany can make a move in
    that direction.

    There were millions of Americans that were not surprised that Trump won –
    you are interviewing the wrong people. If you want the true story, ask some
    of the people on the list of “fake news” sources given to the American
    people by the corrupt mainstream media industry.
