President-elect Donald Trump’s conversations first with President Xi Jinping of China and later with President Vladimir Putin of Russia on November 14, 2016 signified an historic paradigm shift in the United States relationship with China and Russia. Now, the United States is first among equals. Previously, the United States was the world’s hegemon. It signified that we now have rapprochement of the United States with both China and Russia.
This policy shift was the real battle in the 2016 presidential election. Both the Trump camp and the Clinton camp clearly were aware that this was the real battle. The Clintons, George Soros, the neo-conservatives, and the neo-liberals recognized that they were in an existentialist battle for survival of their plan to rule the world. This is why the Clinton warred against Trump, Putin, and Russia. Everything else in the campaign was nothing but eye candy.
Why can I make this assertion?
On February 8, 2016, I posted on my website Russia’s Hybrid War Against The United States: Which Option Do You Want? A voluntary ‘soft landing’, or, an imposed ‘hard landing’? (Open letter to the United States.). My post was based on my interpretation of Rotislav Ischenko’s article Time Is Running Out For Pax Americana’s Apologists. The English translation was posted on the website Oriental Review on November 11, 2015. Between November 11, 2015 and February 8, 2016, Henry Kissinger visited Vladimir Putin. In my post, I suggested that Kissinger’s visit had something to do with Rotislav Ischenko’s article. I am now convinced that Henry Kissinger struck a deal with Vladimir Putin and the result was the recent two Trump telephone calls. We must also keep in mind how Russia was accommodating with Kerry over Aleppo, and how Russia refrained from bombing Aleppo during the campaign and continues to do so.
Two quotes from Rotislav’s article, I think, are key to understanding the importance of the article:
“The paradox of the current global crisis is that for the last five years, all relatively responsible and independent nations have made tremendous efforts to save the United States from the financial, economic, military, and political disaster that looms ahead. And this is all despite Washington’s equally systematic moves to destabilize the world order, rightly known as the Pax Americana.”
“But the US needs to think fast. Their resources are shrinking much faster than the authors of the plan for imperial preservation had expected. To their loss of control over the BRICS countries can be added the incipient, but still fairly rapid loss of control over EU policy as well as the onset of geopolitical maneuvering among the monarchies of the Middle East. The financial and economic entities created and set in motion by the BRICS nations are developing in accordance with their own logic, and Moscow and Beijing are not able to delay their development overlong while waiting for the US to suddenly discover a capacity to negotiate.
The point of no return will pass once and for all sometime in 2016, and America’s elite will no longer be able to choose between the provisions of compromise and collapse. The only thing that they will then be able to do is to slam the door loudly, trying to drag the rest of the world after them into the abyss.”
All of the above is my interpretation of the 2016 presidential election.
