Trump, The Manchurian Candidate: “Conspiracy” to Destabilize the Trump Presidency. Regime Change in America


by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research:

Update and author’s note

The article below entitled Trump, The Manchurian Candidate: U.S. Foreign Policy and the Campaign to Destabilize the Trump Presidency was published on January 4, 2017 prior to the inauguration of president Trump.

In early January 2017, we had predicted an unprecedented constitutional crisis characterized by a coordinated and carefully planned operation to destabilize the Trump presidency involving several stages, both before and after his inauguration.

We are dealing with a carefully planned operation, a “conspiracy” in the true sense of the word.

In recent developments (January 2019), the FBI investigation is being quoted by the media as evidence that Trump is “wittingly or unwittingly” an agent of the Kremlin. (see below Guardian January 2019 report)

Guardian, January 12, 2019

Even prior to the inauguration of president Trump, the US media in liaison with US intelligence launched successive waves of smears directed against President elect Donald Trump.

The objective from the very outset has been to discredit president Trump, presenting him as aManchurian candidate serving the interests of the Kremlin.

The end game is regime change in America.

Regime Change in America. Who are the Protagonists? The Role of the Military Industrial Complex 

War is Good Business: “The defense contractors” favor a presidency which is committed to waging war on Russia, Why?Because it constitutes a profit driven agenda which results in multibillion dollar contracts for the Military Industrial Complex.

The annual budget of the military/security complex is $1,000 billion.  This vast sum is drawn from US taxpayers who have many unmet needs.  To justify such an enormous budget a major enemy is required.  The military/security complex and the media and politicians that the complex owns have designated Russia to be that enemy.  The complex and its political and media agents will not permit Trump to normalize relations with Russia. (Paul Craig Roberts,  The Coming Coup to Overthrow President Trump? Sedition at the Highest Levels, July 20, 2018

The defense contractors are totally unconcerned with the fact that this diabolical agenda (not to mention the 1.2 trillion dollar nuclear weapons campaign) could lead us to World War III. In fact they are actively lobbying in favor of the WWIII scenario while upholding “the low yield more usable” tactical nuclear weapons (with an explosive capacity of up to 12 times a Hiroshima bomb) as “peace making bombs”:”harmless to civilians because the explosion is underground”.

In turn, the media has abided by the Russiagate conspiracy by consistently spreading the word that “Donald Trump was elected by Russia“.

We are dealing with a carefully planned operation, a “conspiracy” in the true sense of the word.

That “conspiracy” is taking us to the threshold of World War III.

It is worth recalling that a  fake “Intelligence Dossier” (early January 2017) had portrayed Trump as an instrument of Moscow, “cultivating and supporting him for at least five years”. The dossier intimated that Russian intelligence “has compromised Trump” to the extent that he can be “blackmailed” on account of his “sexually perverted acts”.

This mysterious intelligence dossier released by BuzzFeed went viral. While the document was acknowledged by US intelligence as being fake, the media (CNN in particular) was intimating (January 2017) that  Trump was not only involved in an act of treason (by calling for the normalization of  US-Russia relations), he was and remains a Manchurian Canidate”  controlled by the Kremlin, which had been consistently blackmailing him into submission.

This pseudo Intelligence Dossier surfaced in the days following the Director of National Intelligence announcement James Clapper that Russia’s alleged hacking constitutes an “Existential Threat” against America.

While no proof of Russian interference in the US elections was forthcoming (January 2017), US tanks and troops had nonetheless been dispatched to Russia’s border by the outgoing president (in early January 2017)  (under Obama’s “Operation Atlantic Resolve” and NATO’s European Reassurance Initiative (ERI)). US-NATO troops were slated to be fully deployed prior to Trump’s inauguration on January 20th.

And the media remains silent. The dangers of an all out war with Russia and its devastating consequences are not front page news. US-NATO wars are casually described by the media as peace-making undertakings.

Were these US-NATO military deployments directed against Russia part of Obama’s “act of retribution” against the Kremlin in response to Moscow’s alleged hacking of the US elections?

Was this a “fast-track” procedure on the part of the outgoing president, with the support of US intelligence to create chaos both prior as well as in the wake of the inauguration of Donald  Trump on January 20, 2017?

While the alleged hacking was casually tagged as an “An Act of War” against the American Homeland, “Operation Atlantic Resolve” (involving a massive deployment of troops and military hardware on Russia’s border) was categorized by the media as an “Act of Self Defense”.

In this article, we describe a coordinated and carefully planned operation to destabilize the Trump presidency involving several stages, both before and after his inauguration.

Is America gearing Towards a Deep-seated Constitutional Crisis

“What seems abundantly clear, however, is that America is gearing towards a deep-seated political crisis, with major social, economic and geopolitical ramifications.

Is the tendency (at some future date) towards the adoption of martial law and the suspension of constitutional government?” (M. Chossudovsky article, January 2017)

The ongoing smear campaign launched at the outset of the 2016 election campaign largely confirms a strategic intent upon delegitimizing the president-elect.

The alleged Russian hacking is being used as a pretext and a justification to wage a preemptive war on Russia. 

When war becomes peace, the world is turned upside down.

Conceptualization is no longer possible.  Insanity prevails. The institutions of government are criminalized.

The Western media and politicians, in chorus, obfuscate the unspoken truth, namely that the US-NATO led war destroys humanity.

When the Lie becomes the Truth there is no Turning Backwards

When war is upheld as a humanitarian endeavor supported by the United Nations, Justice and the entire international legal system are turned upside down: pacifism and the antiwar movement are criminalized.
