Here’s how the Trump presidency will play out, by Pepe Escobar

SLL is generally skeptical when those on the outside claim deep knowledge or insight about those on the inside. So take this article from Pepe Escobar with a grain of salt, but he offers an interesting scenario, whether his source really is “connected” or not. From Escobar at

The Trump era starts now – with geopolitics and geoeconomics set for a series of imminent, unpredictable cliffhangers.

I have argued that Trump’s foreign policy guru Henry Kissinger’s strategy to deal with the formidable Eurasia integration trio – Russia, China and Iran – is a remixed Divide and Rule; seduce Russia away from its strategic partnership with China, while keep harassing the weakest link, Iran.

In fact that’s how it’s already playing out – as in the outbursts of selected members of Trump’s cabinet during their US Senate hearings. Factions of US Think Tankland, referring to Nixon’s China policy, which was designed by Kissinger, are also excited with the possibilities of containment regarding at least one of those powers “potentially arrayed against America”.

Kissinger and Dr. Zbig “Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski are the two foremost, self-described Western dalangs – puppet masters – in the geopolitical arena. In opposition to Kissinger, Obama’s foreign policy mentor Brzezinski, true to his Russophobia, proposes a Divide and Rule centered on seducing China.

Yet an influential New York business source, very close to the real, discreet Masters of the Universe, who correctly predicted Trump’s victory weeks before the fact, after examining my argument offered not only a scathing appraisal of those cherished dalangs; he volunteered to detail how the new normal was laid out by the Masters directly to Trump. Let’s call him “X”.

  1. Bob:

    The most important part of the article was your introduction to it.

    I view ALL “conspiracy theories” with skepticism until facts emerge – incontestable facts, which conclusively establish such things. I take this approach for a number of reasons. The most serious, literally in my mind, is psychological.

    When normal and proper curiosity surrounding seemingly unexplained events/behavior, is supplanted by the acceptance as “plausible,” nefarious and sinister planning, by those conspiring to do what is otherwise untenable; what is then set into motion is that the same mind so embarking will tend to be drawn to the same plausible explanations, for literally everything that is otherwise “unexplained.” That mind will become “consumed” with conspiracy, and tend to become blind to anything else.

    Keep up the good work. As one of your other posted articles reminds, both the Republican Party as we have known it, and the status quo of governance, since at least WWII, is finished.

    What might replace them? I have little insight. If you are one of the 65 million who voted for Hillary, it will be near-term “dread” – accompanied by their fervent prayer, “Lord please do not let me discover my value in a relatively free market.”

    That will be accompanied by their rekindling of the desire for “hope and change” – augmenting their prayer with one for yet another emergence of a persona who will again raise the apparition of providing them “something for nothing.”

    If you are one of the 62 million who voted for Trump, they too will be desirous of “hope and change.” The hope that the change will buy us time while academia and our system of education might be eviscerated and replaced with a system that once again teaches “readin’, writin’, & rithmetic. Concomitant with that, the renewal of a system where those capable and deserving can once again attain a truly liberal (in the classical sense) education.

    Nothing less will surely return us to our political heritage emanating from the Enlightenment..
