After Peddling Russophobia for Years the NYT Editorial Board Now Wants to Lure Russia From China

The New York Times proposes a reverse Nixon

 

“President Trump is correct to try to establish a sounder relationship with Russia and peel it away from China”

 

Yes, your point is well taken, but I do think this is about more than just Russia.

The once-despised Trump has been the greatest benefactor Israel has seen since Lyndon Johnson or Harry Truman.

Trump is now reaping his reward by having the top of the mainline press invent ways to praise him.

I actually predicted this kind of thing would happen when he moved the American embassy to Jerusalem.

It took a little time, but there’s quite a creative process required, plus a little time interval for credibility, to praise a politician you’d so despised.

(Do remember that The Times is a paper which has admitted that every story that it gets concerning Israel is passed by the official Israeli censor before being published.)

See my essay of the time:
