Trump #Shutdown the government LAST year too, you know.
With the most favorable conditions any president could have, clear majorities in the house and senate.
And he started THIS shutdown in December 2018, while he still had favorable conditions.
Therefore, the only conclusion is that a shutdown is/was the goal, and NOT a side effect from failing to reach a different goal.
Always look at the actions, what they actually get or go after, versus what they say they want.
Pretending to be forced to shutdown when you have full control of both Chambers of Congress…..
That’s some pretty ripe bull. That’s what he’s done and nobody calls him on it.
But the thing is that if you are pretending you had no choice, when you go for the thing you want…. Which Trump WANTS the shutdownS …..
Then any repercussions from it you get to blame on something or someone else.
Or at the very least, you get to blame the harm you have caused ON the harm itself. Which is intriguing trick…The irs is closed because of the shutdown. Not “the irs is closed because the president closed the irs.”
We have a president who closed national parks AS THE GOAL.
Within that scope, the entire idea of “a wall” was the set up. That’s the set up and excuse to get to the actual goal which is the shutdown.
So this #TrumpShutdown was planned as early as his first mention or promise of “a wall.”
That should have a few of us concerned.
And for those fools who convince themselves that he’s shutting things down to eliminate waste …
That’s ridiculous, when you are in charge there is nothing preventing you from eliminating waste while things are running.
You don’t have to grind things to a halt and knife the United States economy in the back, in order to lower government spending. Not when you HEAD the government already!
THEREFORE, the actual goal, IS to knife the United States economy in the back.
The only escape from this flowchart, is back where you have to decide if the goal of the Trump administration was the shutdown itself.
He had to work to get the shutdown, where if he had just let Congress do their job there would be no shutdown.
He went for the shutdown.
The shutdown WAS the goal all along.
So now, Trump has a way for his royal friends in arabia to attack the United States and then blame that vulnerability to terrorism on somebody else.
The ulterior motive for choosing a shutdown in the first place…Looking at that to decide the next move is almost impossible.
And that all stinks of slavik strategy.
Typically, they might have some move set up to fire off at the right time in a USA shutdown. Where the shutdown gives them enough advantage for success.
However, I would think that at this junction, that the purpose is more for smoke screen and havoc, while they continue to to move to anex East European nations. As well as tightening their grip on Asad and Syria. More for nudging the usa out of the way of their long game.
Bottom line on it would be oil.
And that is entangled in backdoor deals of enrichment and oil company interests across the globe….
Which your guess is as good as mine on any of that.
My point is, look at their smiles.
Look at potus and vice potus grin from ear to ear, and you tell me that they didn’t get what they wanted?
They must have wanted a shutdown all along. Must have aimed for that shutdown.
Those are not the grins of men who missed their mark.
But if you go back to the flowchart, within the course of a shutdown there are certain known results.
To aim for the shutdown itself, might be an aim for one of those results, versus all of them.
And it’s probably something obscure, if the flow continues in this direction at all. It might not, the entire effects are large enough to be a gain for any enemy nation. Take your pick.
Trump saluted a North Korean general while he was President of the United States. It’s on film it was done there’s no doubt.
Sometimes the obvious is right before your eyes. (Yes I know that’s the definition of obvious I’m having some fun there).
So my final words or say on any of this is that no I don’t know exactly where all of it goes. But I do know where it doesn’t go and where it doesn’t go is to a necessity for shutting down the government due to impasses on political goals. Where it doesn’t go is to some sort of unfortunate outcome. This was planned.
The why of it might be hidden, but the deliberate nature of it cannot hide.
Despots get others to sign on with them when they have a foolproof plan. Part of the other side of that is they also show what will happen to you if you do not go along with them as they initiate their fullproof plan.
It’s all the old ways, I’ve said before that you can find every strategy trumps use in episodes of bugs bunny. They are remedial for a reason.
