The Front National leader said it was time to “secure Russia to the European continent” and hit out at Hollande’s decision not to sell Mistral battleships to the Cold War superpower over their actions in Ukraine.

Ms Le Pen said: “During the last world war she [Russia] paid the heavy price.

“The 25 million Russian and national deaths of the different nationalities of their empire have contributed to our freedom.

“What happened in 2016 is the beginning of a great global revolution.”

She is tipped to get 26 per cent, Emmanuel Macron has dropped to just 23 per cent while scandal-hit Francois Fillon is on just 21 per cent.

Mr Macron who has been forced to apologise over comments he made on colonisation is still polling to beat Le Pen in any run-off by 61 per cent to 39 per cent.

However, it is being suggested that France is steadying itself for a shocking win for Mrs Le Pen as members of the public speak out on why they are planning to back the Front National party.

According to a new report the public in France is reacting badly to corruption scandals, public spending and broken promises.

France Is Forcing Its Employees to Power Down: Will It Work?

The year was 1998. I had just graduated from college and was working as an entry-level account coordinator in a large PR agency in New York City. I worked hard, but my days ended at 6PM when I left the office. Within the next year, though, Ethernet access at home had become a reality. Suddenly, I was expected to be on call for my boss for any and all client needs. I was irate. I felt I did not make enough money for this. I had experienced the freedom of a solidly eight-hour workday, and I wanted that freedom back.

It would never happen. Over the next several years, diffuse working hours would become so pervasive that France – as a country – felt the need to strike back. In this post, we’ll talk about France’s brand new law limiting required employee communication outside of designated work hours.

Two Cheers for Trump Advisor Mike Anton – He Has the Right Enemies

Just as Neocons had no real qualms about a Hillary presidency, they will happily sign on to a progressive agenda as long as it is aggressively pro-Israel and anti-Russian.

Much of the recent hysteria has focused on three high-level Presidential advisors to the president: Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, and Mike Anton.

Anton, now the senior director of strategic communications at the National Security Council, has given the clearest indication of his attitudes.Written under the pseudonym of “Publius Decius Mus” (a Roman consul who sacrificed his life for the success of his troops) his September 2016 essay “The Flight 93 Election” is in tune with Alt Right themes—with some important exceptions.

Against All Odds – Israel Shamir

The battle is not over yet, but meanwhile it seems the Deplorables are winning, and Pussyfaces are losing.

Mike Moore’s flabby mug always looks indecently exposed, the fat slob could lead the old hags’ march without the pink pussyhat. Just his own visage would suffice.

Trump is down, cry the fans and haters alike. He’s been defeated, broken, never to rise again. He is a lame duck soon to be impeached. He will crawl back to his golden lair leaving the White House to his betters, or even better, he will run to his pal Vlad Putin.

No, my friends and readers, Trump is fighting, not running, but things take time. It is not easy to change the paradigm, and the odds were heavily slanted against Trump from step one. Still, he got this far, and he will go on.

Paris has been under martial law for almost 2 years. The media is maintaining a blackout, especially now that France is about to have an historic election. The left can't hide the facts of Muslim riots, rape and murder. The people know, just as we knew here in America that Trump would be our man in the White House to prevent this from happening here.

Another French police officer is accused of raping a male suspect with a truncheon as a second person is revealed to have been abused with a baton during an arrest 

A Paris police officer has been accused of anally raping a man during an arrest - just days after a similar allegation sparked mass protests across the country.

It is claimed that a young man was molested with a baton in October 2015 while he was being arrested.

The allegation has come to light just over two weeks after a 22-year-old man named Theo was left with horrific injuries after allegedly being violated with a truncheon.

McCain in Munich: The War Party Fights Back

The battle over US foreign policy is taking center stage. Sen. John McCain, the Senate’s leading warmonger, is at the forefront of the fight.

The Munich conference held over the weekend – an annual event that brings the leaders of the Atlantic alliance together to celebrate their hegemonic pretensions – was anything but celebratory this time around.

Despite the assurances of Vice President Pence that America’s commitment to NATO is “unwavering,” the Euro-crats in the audience were miffed that he failed to mention the European Union.

Marine Le Pen could have just been handed VICTORY as rival Macron causes FURY with gaffe

MARINE Le Pen's French Presidential campaign has been boosted after socialist rival Emmanuel Macron cause fury by calling French colonialism a "crime against humanity".

The 38-year-old, who is married to his former high school teacher, spoke about France's control of Algeria this week but his remarks have backfired spectacularly and he's been forced to apologise.

Now he's all but certainly handed Front National candidate Marine Le Pen an electoral gift as the pair go head to head in the France presidential election in April and May.

FLASHBACK : The Roots of the Refugee Crisis Caused by the West

“The reason so many are fleeing places such as Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, and Iraq is that U.S. and European interventionist foreign policy has left these countries destabilized with no hopes of economic recovery,”explainedformer congressman and three-time presidential contender Ron Paul, a leading voice for a constitutional, non-interventionist U.S. foreign policy. “This mass migration from the Middle East and beyond is a direct result of the neocon foreign policy of regime change, invasion, and pushing ‘democracy’ at the barrel of a gun.”

“Contrary to what one might expect, U.S. military aid doesn’t produce willing, cooperative, or effective security partners. Instead, it incentivizes bad behavior and drives the sources of terrorism: corruption, violence, and poor governance. Unwittingly, this policy is creating its own enemies,” writes Jeremy Ravinsky.

ELECTIONS IN FRANCE - CIA SPIES ON POLITICAL PARTIES, NYT CLAIMS "RUSSIAN" INTERFERENCE

With the United States engulfed in questions about Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election, France is determined to head off any such meddling in its coming presidential election.
Wikileaks, February 16, 2017: CIA espionage orders for the 2012 French presidential election

All major French political parties were targeted for infiltration by the CIA's human ("HUMINT") and electronic ("SIGINT") spies in the seven months leading up to France's 2012 presidential election. The revelations are contained within three CIA tasking orders published today by WikiLeaks ...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is completely reasonable that Moscow would support Le Pen, because of her anti-Euro, and anti-globalist stances.

A Le Pen victory this May would nearly guarantee that Soros' globalist dreams would be shattered, and that the EU would dissolve, which may well not be the worst thing to happen for average working people in Europe.

And so far, with the wikileaks information presented above, it is not the Russians who have hacked previous French elections, but their US intelligence counterparts.

And Richard Ferrand, I call you out on the following: where is your proof, please, of Russian hacking and fake news against your candidate?!? Because right now, all you have are accusations, and nothing more.

Insanity of NATO 2.0 for MidEast

If this is to be the new NATO for the Middle East then the world is truly about to descend into barbarism on a scale not seen since the Second World War.

As US President Donald Trump hosts Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House this week on the agenda is the formation of a “NATO-style” alliance for the Middle East, according to reports.

As if one US-led warmongering alliance in Europe and the North Atlantic were not enough. Now the world will see a clone of NATO let loose on the already conflict-torn Middle East region, if the reported discussions materialize.

PARIS ON FIRE: Riots reach capital's centre - buildings set ablaze and police attacked

And Officers were forced to unleash tear-gas on angry crowds as buildings and rubbish bins were set on fire around the Barbes Metro station, which is just around the corner from the Eurostar hub at Gare du Nord.

As fire crews went in to extinguish the blazes, lines of riot police were attacked, and shops were looted.

A policeman at the scene said: “Windows have been smashed and officers attacked.

“Small groups of protestors wearing hoods to hide their identities are causing trouble and then running away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These riots - most generally caused by immigrants - even if they do not continue, are almost certain to guarantee the election of Marine Le Pen to the office of French President.

That Soros didn't see this coming in France, no matter how he tries to "paper over" the violence, is a massive failure of imagination on his part, and demonstrates that he is slipping, mentally.

Initial ballots will be cast on 23 April of this year, with a run-off between the two candidates who have won the most ballots on the 7th of May.

Short of an outright assassination of Le Pen, I cannot see that Soros has either the time - or a way forward - to prevent her from becoming President of France.

And that will cause a little ruckus in a little hunk of Europe called Andorra.

Andorra, a small principality you know of if you love to ski in Europe. Like Monaco, it is a tax haven.

Traditionally, it has been run by a usually Italian Catholic (but currently Spanish Episcopal) Bishop, and the President of France, who are called "The Two Princes of the Church", in Andorran politics.

Co-Princes of Andorra

But what if "The Prince" (as in the President of France") becomes...the Princess?!?

SOROS FUNDS GOOGLE TO STOP POPULIST LE PEN

Though largely not reported by the mainstream media, George Soros has invested in Google as it stepped up its “Fake News” campaign designed to depress the vote of anti-globalist Marine Le Pen, leading candidate of the conservative National Front (FN) party in the French presidential election scheduled for April 23.

On Nov. 15, 2016, Market Watch reported George Soros’ hedge fund, Soros Fund Management LLC, invested in Alphabet Inc., the parent company of Google.

On Feb. 16, 2012, Forbes reported that Soros had been trading in Google prior to 2007, but had completely sold out in the second quarter of 2011, at $550 a share.

Then, in the fourth quarter 2011, Soros bought his largest share in Google to date, purchasing 258,900 shares at about $592 per share for a total investment of $154 million.

The whopping 245 percent increase in attacks on Christians represents a genuine and increasing problem; concern over “Islamophobia” has managed to crowd out real human rights issues.

Note the peculiarity of the French interior ministry in diminishing the seriousness of the anti-Christian attacks in boasting about how busy the ministry was, implementing action against “Islamophobia” and anti-Semitism. The government was also quick to note that there was no religious motive for such a drastic spike in anti-Christian attacks.

With two months left until the French election, analysts and political experts find themselves in a quandary: on one hand, political polls show that while National Front's Marine Le Pen will likely win the first round, she is virtually assured a loss in the runoff round against either Fillon, or more recently Macron, having between 20 and 30% of the vote; on the other, all those same analysts and political experts were dead wrong with their forecasts about both Brexit and Trump, and are desperate to avoid a trifecta as being wrong 3 out of 3 just may be result in losing one's job.

The "experts" are after Le Pen for the same reason they are after Trump; they are trying to save their New World Order.

U.S. State Department Begins Effort To Undermine French Election and Utilize “The Vast Russian Conspiracy”…

Those who follow the messaging from within the unofficial news agency of the U.S. State Department, CNN or CNNi, might have noticed a report delivered by Wolf Blitzer yesterday claiming the Russians were set to influence another nationalist election victory, this time in France.

The entire proclamation by Blitzer, and the executive level CNN folks who put it together, was almost identical to the previous claims of a vast Russian conspiracy influencing the U.S. election and the victory of President Donald Trump. The difference between November 2016 and today, is this time CNN is attempting to get out ahead of an election rather than responding to the outcome therein.

In essence, CNN -and by extension the progressive State Department officials remaining within the shadow deep state construct- is trying to influence the French Presidential Race. Blaming the Russians in advance is an attempt to weaken Marine Le Pen.

The Most Satisfying Thing You'll Watch Today: Marion Le Pen Dismantles Feminist Hypocrisy in 3 Minutes

Feminism had been reduced to “sexism in grammar, a pink toy in a happy meal”, Maréchal-Le Pen said, adding that feminists had “lost the plot” on real threats. The real threats, she said, were issues like the migrant sex assault in Cologne on New Year’s Eve 2015/2016 and Islamic law which she said was “being enforced in some of France’s districts”.

She slammed feminists’ views of the “patriarchy” and their placing blame on “heterosexual white men”. She also accused leftists of cosying up to Islamists to further their cause adding the alliance was the reason “self-proclaimed protectors of women’s rights” defend the Islamic veil which she called an “Islamic submission tool”.

Questioning her triumphant visit to the White House last month, the French leader rejected the idea of the UK being ‘delegated’ to talk to Washington.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe she went to DC to talk about Great Britain and France was never even mentioned. That make you feel better Francois?

Louvre attack: French soldier shoots machete-wielding man

A French soldier guarding the Louvre in Paris has shot a man who tried to attack a security patrol with a machete shouting "Allahu Akbar", police say.

The man, who tried to gain entry to the Louvre's shopping centre, was shot in the abdomen and seriously injured.

President Francois Hollande said the situation was under control but the "threat of terrorism is here to stay".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, how's that open-borders idea working out for you?

Marine Le Pen promises Frexit referendum if she wins presidency

France’s far-right National Front party leader Marine Le Pen has announced plans to hold a referendum on France’s exit from the EU and on amending the constitution if she wins the country’s presidential election this spring. In the interview with Le Monde newspaper published on Thursday, the French politician said the referendum on amending the constitution will take place shortly after the parliamentary elections in June. Le Pen proposes introducing a ban on creating isolated communities, allowing national priority (limiting employment of foreign workers), protecting and developing historic and cultural heritage, reducing the number of MPs from 577 to 300 and senators from 348 to 200. The other proposed measures are changing the plurality voting system in the National Assembly (lower house of parliament) to a proportional one, establishing the supremacy of the French law over European agreements and introducing referendums upon people’s initiative.

Fillon OUT: New poll shows Marine Le Pen WILL beat right-wing opponent in first round

The survey, which was carried by out for Les Echos newspaper in the wake of Penelopegate – the financial scandal involving M Fillon’s wife Penelope – shows the Les Republicains candidate will be knocked out in round one and lose to rivals Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron.

Mlle Le Pen, the leader of France’s Front National party, will come first in the election’s first round in April with 26-27 per cent of the votes, while M Macron would garner 22-23 per cent and M Fillon 19-20 per cent, the poll shows.

French police RAID PARLIAMENT in Fillon investigation just hours after interrogation

FRENCH police have raided parliament in an investigation into presidential candidate Francois Fillon’s alleged misuse of public money.

The probe was carried out on Tuesday, just a day after the right wing Republican candidate and his wife were interrogated by police.

Mr Fillon, 62, and his Welsh-born wife Penelope face a series of questions about whether or not she did a "fake" job that she was paid £430,000 (€500,000) of taxpayers money to do for more than eight years.

Migrants at WAR: Tensions in Paris as children attacked with knives for being 'too rich'

GANGS of North African youths have terrified Chinese migrants amid complaints they have become 'too rich'.

The streets of Paris have erupted into inter-migrant strife as North African youths have targeted 'rich' Chinese migrants amid growing tensions.

Police in France recorded more than 200 attacks on Chinese immigrants last year, mostly from hostile migrant gangs.

This comes amid a growing perception that recent migrants from North Africa have become "too demanding" and consider themselves "victims" who deserve pity.

SHOCK POLL: Marine Le Pen to LEAD French presidential race in first round of voting

The Front National chief is set receive more than a quarter of the vote, ahead of Thatcher admirer François Fillon, who is on 22 per cent, and former economy minister Emmanuel Macron, who is on 21 per cent, the Kantar Sofres one-point poll revealed.

Benoît Hamon, a staunch Socialist and the surprise winner of Sunday’s left-wing primary, is set to win 15 per cent of the first-round presidential vote.

In 2015 there was no way the UK would vote to leave the European Union, so Prime Minister David Cameron promised to call a “Brexit” referendum as a cost-free sop to his party’s right wing in the upcoming election. The Conservatives won big, and Cameron kept his promise to run the meaningless referendum. But against all odds and contrary to nearly every election-day poll, Brexit won, flushing Cameron out of politics, pulling the UK out of the EU, and handing a huge victory to a populist coalition led by the UK Independence Pary’s Nigel Farage.

Drain The Neo-Con/Neo-Liberal Deep State Micro-Swamp

The enormous potential for sabotage, politically motivated investigations/prosecutions/indictments/civil lawsuits, and other types of proverbial “throwing a monkey wrench” into the well-oiled pro-America First machine that President Donald Trump is now trying to feverishly re-construct and re-build is at huge, great risk from potential enemies within.

Now that President Donald Trump is, in a lightening fast, almost blitzkrieg manner, using his first weeks to pass monumentally powerful Executive Orders, in order to demolish and devastate the existing United States Deep State Neo-Conservative/Neo-Liberal Establishment, he must also simultaneously watch his back and be cognizant of the tens of millions of government micro-infiltrators, still taking their marching orders from the proverbial “head of the snake.”

In other words, the devil is in the details...

UK’s May puts The Donald on best behavior… but who got the deal?

So how did May pull it off, that is, tame the tycoon?

US President Donald Trump’s hosting of Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May was billed as the “odd-couple” meeting. After their amiable press conference and Trump’s remarkably subdued behavior – for him – the British leader is entitled to feel satisfied.

On her way to Washington DC, she even hinted at bracing for an odd-couple challenge, by telling reporters, “sometimes opposites attract.”

The Media Is Now The Political Opposition

Maybe Trump will add to his agenda breaking into hundreds of pieces the six mega-media companies that own 90% of the US media.

Bannon is correct that the US media—indeed, the entire Western print and TV media—is nothing but a propaganda machine for the ruling elite. The presstitutes are devoid of integrity, moral conscience, and respect for truth. Read the comments in which morons define freedom of the press as the freedom to lie to the public.

Trump’s First Big Mistake – Justin Raimondo

Syrian “safe zones”: a disaster waiting to happen

This idea is a disaster waiting to happen, and could augur the unraveling of the President’s “America First” foreign policy, which supposedly abjures regime change operations in the Middle East and elsewhere. In 2013 testimony submitted to Congress by then chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, the reality of what this would have to mean was outlined:

“Thousands of U.S. ground forces would be needed, even if positioned outside Syria, to support those physically defending the zones. A limited no-fly zone coupled with US ground forces would push the costs over one billion dollars per month.”

Le Pen rival Fillon facing POLITICAL RUIN over payments to his wife from TAXPAYERS money

François Fillon, considered to be a frontrunner in May’s presidential election, is facing calls to explain what role his wife has played in his political team.

Reports released in French media claim Penelope Fillion was paid nearly £430,000 in eight years out of taxpayers coffers – despite claiming she did not "have a role" in her husband's office both last year and in 2008.

Trump signs five more orders on pipelines, steel and environment

"This is about streamlining the incredibly cumbersome, long, horrible, permitting process"

President Trump signed five more executive actions Tuesday in a blitz of executive power meant to speed approvals of high-profile energy and infrastructure projects, including two controversial pipeline projects in the upper Midwest.

Trump signed two presidential memoranda intended to expedite the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, but also signed three more longer-term and sweeping directives requiring American-made steel and changing the process of approving and regulating future pipeline and infrastructure projects.

From Yin to Yang – Pussy Riot–3, in Washington

The ascent of Donald Trump is more than a change of tenant of the White House on 1600, Pennsylvania Ave. It is a momentous swing from Yin to Yang, from dark feminine to bright masculine paradigm, from Cybele to Christ. Tremendous resistance to the regime change proves its unique importance.

Pussy Riot–3, in Washington, another obscene attempt to use women and their bodies for political and religious anti-Christian purposes.

If you prefer a more up-to-date comparison, this is a new Pussy Riot. Perhaps you remember there was a Russian group of that name. They were anti-Putin like the American lot is anti-Trump; they blasphemed like their American counterparts; they were guided and supported by Louise “Madonna” Ciccone, who starred in Washington threatening to blow up the White House.

Trump’s Inaugural Address Was Like No Other in History

He is rich enough, and independent enough, and cantankerous enough that he may not get stuck in the swamps of political compromise.

Donald Trump’s inaugural address is going to go down in history as one of the great ones.I say this as a man with 59 years of public speaking experience and a Ph.D. in American history.

Trump’s speech was different from any previous inaugural address. He spoke directly to his political base. He did not try to pull the country together in some kind of vague, pie-in-the-sky, common-ground political rhetoric. He threw down the gauntlet from the very beginning. Standing in front of the Capitol building, surrounded by former Presidents and politicians, he said that everything they had done in the past has been a way to extract power from the American people and to feather their own nests. This, of course, is exactly what they have done. Nobody had ever said this before in an inaugural address.

Trump’s Inaugural Speech – Promises, Hopes and Opportunities

Could 21st century capitalism dump imperialism? Maybe.
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 speech which 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.

Trump’s Declaration of War – Paul Craig Roberts

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.

Trump made it abundantly clear that Americans’ enemies are right here at home: globalists, neoliberal economists, 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.

Tourists Flee ‘Nightmare’ Paris Amidst Rising Theft, Assaults, Terror

Tourists from China are avoiding France amid surging violence and crime, a Chinese tourism expert has said, reporting that customers are turning to Russia as a safer destination.
President of the Chinese Association of Travel Agencies in France, Jean-François Zhou, said “increasingly violent” thefts and assaults are turning France into “one of the worst destinations for foreign tourists”.

Mr. Zhou, a representative for major Chinese travel agency Utour in France, reported a steep decline in visitor numbers from Asia, and said many tourists are now looking to Russia as a less dangerous holiday destination.

“In 2016, there were 1.6 million Chinese tourists compared to 2.2 million in 2015. The number of Japanese tourists dropped 39 per cent, and Koreans 27 per cent. Our tourists have turned to Russia, which is less attractive but at least it is a safe country. For Putin, it is an economic windfall”, he told Le Parisien.

I am predicting that Marine Le Pen will win France's next election in a landslide, and many of these refugees will be as quickly repatriated to their countries of origin as humanly possible.

We could dismiss Trump’s admission as throwing a bone to the CIA so they can feel vindicated and get off his back, and the statements by Tillerson and Mattis could be dismissed as what has to be said in order to be confirmed.

The big shots who run the country are trying to strong-arm ‘the Donald’ into carrying their water so the depredations can continue...

Powerful elites are using the credibility of the US Intelligence agencies to demonize Russia and prepare the country for war.

Last week’s 25-page report, that was released by the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, illustrates to what extent intelligence is being “fixed around the policy”.

The Intelligence Community has been coerced into compromising its credibility to incite fear of Russia and to advance the geopolitical ambitions of deep state powerbrokers.

Risks and Opportunities for 2017

Just a few days into 2017 and we can already say with a great degree of confidence that 2017 will be a historical year. Furthermore, I submit that 2017 will be the “Year of Trump” because one of roughly three things will happen: either Trump will fully deliver on his threats and promises, or Trump deliver on some, but far from all, his threats and promises or, finally, Trump will be neutralized by the Neocon-run Congress, media, intelligence community. He might even be impeached or murdered.

Of course, there is an infinity of sub-possibilities here, but for the purpose of this discussion I will call the first option “Trump heavy”, the second one “Trump light” and the third one “Trump down”.

France's future president spotted in Trump Tower

According to recent polls, Marine Le Pen's rating is now higher than that of her rival, former prime minister and center-right activist Francois Fillon. Marine Le Pen stated before that if she ever takes office as President, France would pull out from NATO. "NATO was created at the time of the threat from the Warsaw Pact and the communist expansion of the Soviet Union. The USSR no longer exists, nor does the Warsaw Pact. Washington supports the existence of NATO to serve its purposes in Europe," Marine Le Pen said. She also expressed her respect for Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President-elect Donald Trump. The French will go to the polls to elect their new president on April 23. A second round of elections may take place on May 7. Le Pen may win the elections in the first round with about 26.5 percent of votes...

This is a political coup d’etat...an attempt at removing Donald Trump from the White House.

It all began with CNN published an article entitled “Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him”

Obama’s ‘Farewell To Arms’ As War Presidency Ends

Self-declared liberal Americans consider Bush to be a warmongering disaster, yet somehow they hail Obama as some kind of progressive «peace president».

Eight straight years of warmongering come to an end as US President Barack Obama bows out with his «farewell to the nation» speech this week, as fawning American media dubbed his valediction.

In reality, Obama’s outgoing address should have been billed as a «farewell to arms» made by arguably one of the most belligerent presidents to ever have occupied the White House.

Only in exceptionally delusional America could such a pernicious paradox be presented as something honorable and sentimental.

Two conflicting interpretations are suggested, says Cohen. Either Trump is about to become a potentially seditious American president. Or powerful US forces are trying to destroy his presidency before it begins, perhaps even prevent him from taking office.
