JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: TRUMP CHAIRS THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL AND MAKES AN ASS OF HIMSELF – BUT THERE IS NOTHING FUNNY ABOUT AMERICA’S CLEAR DRIFT TOWARDS FASCISM – TRUMP’S APPOINTMENTS FROM HELL – AMERICA’S RECORD OF GENUINE INTERFERENCE IN THE POLITICS OF OTHER COUNTRIES

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN CBC NEWS

 

“Trump, chairing his 1st Security Council meeting, accuses China of election interference

“U.S. president also issues warning to Iran, which he deemed ‘world’s leading sponsor of terror’”

 

The man just blurts out whatever comes into his head.

He has no basis for saying this. It is just a hollow echo of what the American government has been saying about Russia. So why not use it for China, too? The rationale is as substantial as any offered for all his chaotic behaviors in foreign affairs.

As a measure of just how absurd Trump can be, he also said “China respects him for his very, very large brain.” Imagine anyone saying that to an audience, much less a United States’ President?

And talk about the greatest hypocrisy on earth, his administration has practically invented a new branch of the national government, those involved in creating, levying, and monitoring sanctions and threats against many national governments.

All of them unwarranted. Many interfering in the internal affairs of others. America has created a new form of economic warfare by exploiting its privileged position in international payments and other financial affairs against governments it does not like.

He tries to tell Germany where to buy its gas and China where to buy its planes. He tells Iran it can’t sell its oil. And anyone else who tries to assist any of America’s selected victims in avoiding its diktats also is threatened by sanctions.

This whole ugly business with Bolton and Haley and Pompeo and company and all their threats and pressures is truly starting to resemble a contemporary form of fascism. They all scowl for the camera and say outrageous things about others, largely going unquestioned by an obedient press, reminding anyone with some history of the kind of loyal helpers who made fascism work in Europe during the 1930s.

And then, there is just an endless stream of lies and nonsense pouring from every source in Washington. They lie because they are busy doing things which will not stand up to scrutiny.

It is becoming frightening.

If you are interested, here is a long list of American-created interventions and coups:

America also is an old hand at directly interfering in foreign elections with covert money supplied to opposition groups by the CIA, and many dirty tricks done to governments they don’t like.
