THE SAKER -- Una “revolución de color” está en marcha en los Estados Unidos

THE SAKER -- A “color revolution” is under way in the United States

A “color revolution” is under way in the United States

A “color revolution” is under way in the United States

A Russian joke goes like this: “Question: why can there be no color revolution in the United States? Answer: because there are not US Embassies in the United States.
Funny, maybe, but factually wrong: I believe that a color revolution is being attempted in the USA right now.
Politico seems to feel the same way.  See their recent cover:
While I did predict that “The USA are about to face the worst crisis of their history” as far back as October of last year, a month before the elections, I have to admit that I am surprised and amazed at the magnitude of struggle which we see taking place before our eyes.  It is now clear that the Neocons did declare war on Trump and some, like Paul Craig Roberts, believe that Trump has now returned them the favor.  I sure hope that he is right.
Let’s look at one telling example:
US intelligence agencies are now investigating their own boss!  Yes, according to recent reports, the FBI, CIA, National Security Agency and Treasury Department are now investigating the telephone conversations between General Flynn and the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyk.  According to Wikipedia, General Flynn is the former
  • Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency
  • Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance
  • Chair of the Military Intelligence Board
  • Assistant Director of National Intelligence
  • Senior intelligence officer for the Joint Special Operations Command.
He is also Trump’s National Security Advisor.  In other words, his security clearance is stratospherically high and he will soon become the boss of all the US intelligence services.  And yet, these very same intelligence services are investigating him for his contacts with the Russian Ambassador.   That is absolutely amazing.  Even in the bad old Soviet Union, the putatively almighty KGB did not have the right to investigate a member of the Communist Party Central Committee without a special authorization of the Politburo (a big mistake, in my opinion, but never mind that).  That roughly means that the top 500 members of the Soviet state could not be investigated by the KGB at all.  Furthermore, such was the subordination of the KGB to the Party that for common criminal matters the KGB was barred from investigating any member of the entire Soviet Nomenklatura, roughly 3 million people (and even bigger mistake!).

THE SAKER -- El discurso inaugural de Trump – promesas, esperanzas y oportunidades

El discurso inaugural de Trump – promesas, esperanzas y oportunidades

Hace sólo unas horas, Donald Trump finalmente se juramentó como Presidente de los Estados Unidos. Teniendo en cuenta todas las amenazas que pesaban sobre este evento, ésta es una buena noticia ya que al menos por el momento, los neoconservadores han perdido el control sobre el Poder Ejecutivo y Trump ahora está finalmente en condiciones de tomar medidas. La otra buena noticia es el discurso de inauguración de Trump, que incluyó esta promesa histórica: “No buscamos imponer nuestro estilo de vida a nadie, sino dejarlo brillar como ejemplo para que todos lo sigan”. ¿Podría eso realmente significar que Estados Unidos ha renunciado a su papel de Hegemón Mundial? El mero hecho de hacer la pregunta, ya es un acontecimiento inmensamente positivo, ya que nadie lo hubiera preguntado si Hillary Clinton hubiese sido elegida.
La otra característica interesante del discurso de Trump es que se centró en gran medida en el poder de la gente y en la justicia social. Una vez más, el contraste con la basura ideológica de Clinton no podría ser mayor. Sin embargo, esto plantea una pregunta mucho más desconcertante: ¿en qué medida se puede confiar en un capitalista multimillonario cuando habla del empoderamiento de la gente y de justicia social? No es exactamente por lo que los capitalistas se conocen, al menos no entre las personas educadas. Además, un lector marxista también nos recordaría que “el imperialismo es la etapa más elevada del capitalismo” y que no tiene sentido esperar que un capitalista renuncie repentinamente al imperialismo.
Pero, lo que era generalmente cierto en 1916 no lo es necesariamente en 2017.

THE SAKER -- Trump’s inaugural speech – promises, hopes and opportunities

January 21, 2017 
Just hours ago Donald Trump was finally sworn in as the President of the United States. Considering all the threats hanging over this event, this is good news because at least for the time being, the Neocons have lost their control over the Executive Branch and Trump is now finally in a position to take action. The other good news is Trump’s inauguration speechwhich included this historical promise “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”. Could that really mean that the USA has given up its role of World Hegemon? The mere fact of asking the question is already an immensely positive development as nobody would have asked it had Hillary Clinton been elected.
The other interesting feature of Trump’s speech is that it centered heavily on people power and on social justice. Again, the contrast with the ideological garbage from Clinton could not be greater. Still, this begs a much more puzzling question: how much can a multi-millionaire capitalist be trusted when he speaks of people power and social justice – not exactly what capitalists are known for, at least not amongst educated people. Furthermore, a Marxist reader would also remind us that “imperialism is the highest stage of capitalism” and that it makes no sense to expect a capitalist to suddenly renounce imperialism.
But what was generally true in 1916 is not necessarily true in 2017.

Réseau Voltaire -- Discours d’investiture de Donald Trump

Discours d’investiture de Donald Trump


JPEG - 43.9 ko
Monsieur le Président de la Cour suprême,
Messieurs les Présidents Carter, Bush, Clinton, Obama,
concitoyens américains et peuple du monde,
Nous, les citoyens américains, nous sommes unis dans un grand effort national pour reconstruire notre pays.
Ensemble, nous déterminerons la trajectoire de notre pays et celle du monde pour de nombreuses années à venir.
Nous aurons des défis. Nous aurons à affronter des difficultés, mais nous accomplirons ce travail jusqu’au bout.
Tous les quatre ans, nous nous réunissons sur ces marches pour assurer la transition du pouvoir. Et nous remercions le président Barack Obama et la première dame, Michelle Obama, pour leur aide précieuse durant cette transition. Ils ont été formidables.
La cérémonie d’aujourd’hui a toutefois un sens très particulier, car il ne s’agit pas seulement de transférer le pouvoir d’une administration à une autre ou d’un parti à un autre. Nous déplaçons le pouvoir de Washington pour vous le rendre à vous, le peuple des États-Unis.
Pendant trop longtemps, une petite élite de la capitale de notre pays a profité des avantages de notre gouvernement, pendant que le peuple en faisait les frais. Les politiciens ont prospéré, alors que le peuple n’a tiré aucun bénéfice de toutes ces richesses. L’establishment s’est protégé lui-même, mais il n’a pas protégé les citoyens de notre pays. Leurs victoires n’ont pas été les vôtres. Leurs triomphes n’ont pas été les vôtres. Et pendant qu’ils faisaient la fête dans notre capitale nationale, il n’y avait rien à fêter dans les familles en difficulté partout au pays.
À partir de maintenant, tout cela va changer. Parce que ce moment est votre moment. Il vous appartient. Il appartient à tous ceux qui sont réunis ici et à tous ceux qui nous regardent partout aux États-Unis. C’est votre jour, ceci est votre célébration, et ce pays, les États-Unis d’Amérique, est votre pays. Ce qui compte vraiment, ce n’est pas qui détient le pouvoir au gouvernement, mais le fait que le gouvernement est entre les mains du peuple américain.
Le 20 janvier 2017 demeurera dans les mémoires comme le jour où le peuple aura repris le pouvoir au pays. Les hommes et les femmes laissés pour compte de ce pays ne seront plus oubliés. Tout le monde vous écoute désormais. Vous êtes venus par dizaines de millions pour vous joindre à un mouvement historique et inédit dans l’histoire du monde. Au centre de ce mouvement, il y a la conviction que la nation existe pour servir ses citoyens. Pour donner aux Américains ce dont ils ont besoin : d’excellentes écoles pour leurs enfants, la sécurité dans leurs quartiers pour leurs familles et de bons emplois pour tous. Ce sont là les aspirations raisonnables d’un peuple épris de justice.
Mais, pour un trop grand nombre de nos citoyens, la réalité est tout autre : des mères et des enfants sont piégés par la pauvreté dans nos villes, nos usines rouillées sont en décrépitude partout au pays, notre système éducatif manque d’argent, ce qui empêche les élèves et les étudiants d’accéder au savoir, et la criminalité, les gangs et la drogue ont pris trop de vies et privé notre pays de son immense potentiel.
Le carnage américain s’arrête ici et maintenant. Nous sommes une seule et même nation, et leur souffrance est la nôtre. Leurs rêves sont les nôtres, et leurs succès seront les nôtres. Nous partageons le même cœur, la même maison et le même destin glorieux. Le serment que je prête aujourd’hui est un serment d’allégeance à tous les Américains.
Des décennies durant, nous avons enrichi les industries étrangères aux dépens de l’industrie américaine. Nous avons subventionné les armées d’autres pays, tandis que nos équipements militaires se dégradaient. Nous avons défendu les frontières d’autres pays tout en refusant de défendre les nôtres. Nous avons dépensé des milliards de dollars à l’étranger, alors que l’infrastructure des États-Unis tombait en décrépitude. Nous avons rendu riches d’autres pays, pendant que la richesse, la puissance et la confiance de notre pays se dissipaient à l’horizon. Une à une, les usines ont fermé, sans une seule pensée pour des milliers de travailleurs américains laissés pour compte. La richesse de notre classe moyenne a été arrachée des foyers et a été redistribuée au monde entier.
Mais ça, c’est le passé. Maintenant nous sommes résolument tournés vers l’avenir.
Pendant que nous sommes tous rassemblés ici aujourd’hui, nous promulguons un nouveau décret qui devra retentir dans toutes les villes et toutes les capitales du monde. À partir d’aujourd’hui, l’Amérique aura une nouvelle vision. À partir d’aujourd’hui, ce sera uniquement « les États-Unis d’abord ». Toutes les décisions en matière de commerce, de taxes, d’immigration ou d’affaires étrangères seront prises au profit des travailleurs américains et des familles américaines. Nous devons protéger nos frontières des ravages causés par d’autres pays qui fabriquent nos produits, volent nos entreprises et détruisent nos emplois. Le fait de les protéger nous rendra notre prospérité et notre grandeur.
Je me battrai pour vous de toutes mes forces. Et je compte ne jamais vous décevoir.
Les États-Unis vont vaincre à nouveau, vaincre comme ils n’ont jamais vaincu. Nous allons ramener nos emplois, nous allons rétablir nos frontières, nous allons retrouver notre santé, et nous allons retrouver nos rêves.
Nous allons construire de nouvelles routes et autoroutes, de nouveaux ponts, aéroports, tunnels et chemins de fer partout dans notre merveilleux pays. Nous allons sortir les gens de l’aide sociale et leur redonner du travail pour reconstruire notre pays avec une main d’œuvre américaine, avec le travail des Américains.
Nous obéirons à deux règles simples : acheter américain et embaucher américain. Nous chercherons à garder l’amitié et les bonnes grâces des autres pays du monde, mais ils doivent comprendre que chaque pays a le droit de faire passer ses intérêts avant ceux des autres. Nous ne cherchons pas à imposer notre mode de vie à quiconque, mais nous voulons qu’il serve d’exemple aux autres. Nous voulons être un exemple d’excellence.
Nous allons renforcer nos anciennes alliances et en conclure d’autres afin d’unir le monde pour éradiquer le terrorisme de l’islam radical de la face de la Terre. Nos politiques seront fondées sur une allégeance totale aux États-Unis d’Amérique. Et cette loyauté à l’égard de notre pays nous fera redécouvrir notre loyauté envers les autres. Quand on ouvre son cœur au patriotisme, il n’y a pas de place pour les préjugés. La Bible nous dit à quel point il est bon pour les hommes de vivre dans l’unité et l’harmonie. Nous devons nous exprimer ouvertement afin de débattre honnêtement pour régler nos différends et rester solidaires. Quand l’Amérique est unie, personne ne peut l’arrêter. N’ayez crainte, nous sommes protégés et nous serons toujours protégés par les hommes et les femmes extraordinaires de notre armée et de nos forces de sécurité. Et, surtout, nous serons protégés par Dieu.
Enfin, nous devons avoir des rêves de grandeur. Aux États-Unis, nous pensons qu’une nation ne peut vivre que si elle demeure prospère. Nous n’accepterons plus les politiciens qui ne font que parler sans agir et qui se plaignent constamment sans rien faire pour que la situation change.
L’époque des palabres inutiles est révolue. C’est le moment d’agir. Ne permettez à personne de vous dire que c’est impossible. Aucun défi ne peut être plus grand que l’esprit combatif américain. Nous n’échouerons pas. Notre pays redeviendra de nouveau prospère. Nous sommes au seuil d’un nouveau millénaire ; une nouvelle ère commence, qui devra ouvrir de nouveaux horizons et nous permettre de panser nos plaies et de mobiliser nos énergies pour faire prospérer nos industries et concevoir les technologies de demain.
Une nouvelle fierté nationale nous étreint pour élargir nos horizons et surmonter nos divisions. Rappelez à votre mémoire cette sagesse ancestrale, que nos soldats n’oublieront jamais, selon laquelle, que nous soyons noirs, basanés ou blancs, nous avons le même sang rouge du patriotisme qui coule dans nos veines. Nous jouissons tous des mêmes libertés glorieuses et nous saluons tous le même drapeau américain. Que les enfants soient nés dans des villes comme Détroit ou dans les plaines venteuses du Nebraska, ils regardent tous le même horizon et lèvent les yeux vers les mêmes étoiles. Ils ont tous les mêmes rêves, et leur cœur est rempli du même espoir de vie qui leur est donné par le même créateur tout puissant.
Vous, les Américains de toutes les villes, proches et lointaines, petites ou grandes, d’une montagne à l’autre, d’un océan à l’autre, écoutez ces paroles : vous ne serez plus jamais ignorés.
Votre voix, vos espoirs et vos rêves définiront la destinée de l’Amérique. Votre courage, votre bonté et votre amour nous guideront le long du chemin. Ensemble, nous allons redonner aux États-Unis leur puissance, leur richesse, leur fierté et leur sécurité.
Et, oui, ensemble, nous allons redonner aux États-Unis leur grandeur.
Merci, que Dieu vous bénisse. Merci. Que Dieu bénisse les États-Unis.

President Trump’s brief inaugural speech was a declaration of war against the entirety of the American Ruling Establishment.  All of it.
Trump made it abundantly clear that Americans’ enemies are right here at home:  globalists, neoconservatives and other unilateralists accustomed to imposing the US on the world and involving us in endless and expensive wars, politicians who serve the Ruling Establishment rather than the American people, indeed, the entire canopy of private interests that have run America into the ground while getting rich in the process.
If truth can be said, President Trump has declared a war far more dangerous to himself than if he had declared war against Russia or China.
The interest groups designated by Trump as The Enemy are well entrenched and accustomed to being in charge. Their powerful networks are still in place.  Although there are Republican majorities in the House and Senate, most of those in Congress are answerable to the ruling interest groups that provide their campaign funds and not to the American people or to the President. The military/security complex, offshoring corporations, Wall Street and the banks are not going to roll over for Trump. And neither is the presstitute media, which is owned by the interest groups whose power Trump challenges.
Trump made it clear that he stands for every American, black, brown, and white.  Little doubt his declaration of inclusiveness will be ignored by the haters on the left who will continue to call him a racist just as the $50 per hour paid protesters are doing as I write.
Indeed, black leadership, for example, is enculturated into the victimization role from which it would be hard for them to escape. How do you pull together people who all their lives have been taught that whites are racists and that they are the victims of racists?
Can it be done?  I was just on a program briefly with Press TV in which we were supposed to provide analysis of Trump’s inaugural speech.  The other commentator was a black American in Washington, DC. Trump’s inclusiveness speech made no impression on him, and the show host was only interested in showing the hired protesters as a way of discrediting America. So many people have an economic interest in speaking in behalf of victims that inclusiveness puts them out of jobs and causes. 
So along with the globalists, the CIA, the offshoring corporations, the armaments industries, the NATO establishment in Europe, and foreign politicians accustomed to being well paid for supporting Washington’s interventionist foreign policy, Trump will have arrayed against him the leaders of the victimized peoples, the blacks, the hispanics, the feminists, the illegals, the homosexuals and transgendered.  This long list, of course, includes the white liberals as well, as they are convinced that flyover America is the habitat of white racists, misogynists, homophobes, and gun nuts.  As far as they are concerned, this 84% of geographical US should be quarantined or interred.
In other words, does enough good will remain in the population to enable a President to unite the 16% America haters with the 84% America lovers? 
Consider the forces that Trump has against him:
Black and hispanic leaders need victimization, because it is what elevates them to power and income. They will turn a jaundiced eye toward Trump’s inclusiveness. Inclusiveness is good for blacks and hispanics, but not for their leaders.
The executives and shareholders of global corporations are enriched by the offshored jobs that Trump says he will bring home. If the jobs come home, their profits, performance bonuses, and capital gains will go away. But the economic security of the American population will return.
The military/security complex has a 1,000 billion annual budget dependent on “the Russian threat” that Trump says he is going to replace with normalized relations. Trump’s assassination cannot be ruled out.
Many Europeans owe their prestige, power, and incomes to the NATO that Trump has called into question.
The financial sector’s profits almost entirely flow from putting Americans into debt bondage and from looting their private and public pensions. The financial sector with their agent, the Federal Reserve, can overwhelm Trump with financial crisis. The New York Federal Reserve Bank has a complete trading desk. It can send any market into turmoil. Or support any market, because there is no limit on its ability to create US dollars.
The entire political ediface in the US has insulated itself from the will, desires, and needs of the people.  Now Trump says the politicians will be accountable to the people.  This, of course, would mean a big drop in their security in office and in their income and wealth.
There are a large number of groups, funded by we-know-not-who.  For example, RootsAction has responded today to Trump’s forceful commitment to stand for all of the people against the Ruling Establishment with a request to “ask Congress to direct the House Judiciary Committee to open an impeachment investigation” and to send money for Trump’s impeachment.
Another hate group, human rights first, attacks Trump’s defense of our borders as closing “a refuge of hope for those fleeing persecution.”  Think about this for a minute. According to the liberal-progressive-left and the racial interest group organizations, the US is a racist society and President Trump is a racist. Yet, people subject to American racism are fleeing from persecution to America where they will be racially persecuted?  It doesn’t make sense.  The illegals come here for work. Ask the construction companies. Ask the chicken and animal slaughter houses. Ask the vacation area cleaning services.
This list of those on whom Trump has declared war is long enough, although there are more that can be added.
We should ask ourselves why a 70 year old billionaire with flourishing businesses, a beautiful wife, and intelligent children is willing to give his final years to the extraordinary stress of being President with the stressful agenda of putting the government back in the hands of the American people.  There is no doubt that Trump has made himself a target of assassination.  The CIA is not going to give up and go away. Why would a person take on the grand restoration of America that Trump has declared when he could instead spend his remaining years enjoying himself immensely? 
Whatever the reason, we should be grateful for it, and if he is sincere we must support him.  If he is assassinated, we need to take up our weapons, burn Langley to the ground and kill every one of them.
If he succeeds, he deserves the designation: Trump the Great!
Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, and any other country on the CIA’s hit list should undersand that Trump’s rise is insufficient protection. The CIA is a worldwide organization. Its profitable businesses provide income independent of the US budget.  The organization is capable of undertaking operations independently of the President or even of its own Director.
The CIA has had about 70 years to entrench itself.  It has not gone away.

His first speech as President of the United States -- Full Transcript


His first speech as President of the United States

Watch President Trump's Inaugural Address
Donald Trump delivered his first speech as President of the United States on Friday morning.
Donald Trump delivered his first speech as President of the United States on Friday morning.
Trump was joined at the inauguration by members of his family, including his wife Melania Trump, and his children Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, Tiffany Trump and Barron Trump. Outgoing President Barack Obama, along with former Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter were also in attendance.
Ahead of his speech, Trump aide Kellyanne Conway said the American people could expect Trump’s address to be a message to “unify the country.” “You’re going to hear a man of action, a man of resolve in what we all know to be a divided country,” Conway said Friday morning on CBS.
Read the full transcript of his remarks below:
[*] TRUMP: Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans and people of the world, thank you.
(APPLAUSE) We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.
Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come. We will face challenges, we will confront hardships, but we will get the job done.
Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you.
Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people.
For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
That all changes starting right here and right now because this moment is your moment, it belongs to you.
TRUMP: It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.
What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.
January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.
