The REAL Donald Trump – A Fascinating Interview of the Man from 1990

Screen Shot 2016-01-25 at 10.10.16 AM

I originally came across this interview after seeing a tweet referencing a 25 year old interview during which Trump expressed admiration for how strongly Chinese authorities cracked down on dissent in Tianeman Square in 1989. I immediately thought to myself that this would be the perfect fodder to further elucidate the kind of cold, brutal, authoritarian leader Trump undoubtably would be as President.

While that particular quote did indeed back that up, I decided to read further and came away with many additional observations. I think these observations are worth sharing since I think there’s a very real chance Trump will be elected President within the next ten years. His chances ride on the fact that the current system is terminally corrupt, as well as socially and economically bankrupt. It will crash and burn, whether in slow motion like the past eight years, or very rapidly over the next several. Someone will likely step in to fill this void, and Trump has the personality type and understanding of human nature to possibly propel himself into the position when the timing is right. Is the time right in 2016? Probably not, but a President Trump is far more likely to occur in our lifetimes than many of us want to admit.

    If it is all kabuki then why the endless articles on the candidates?

    Playing both sides of the fence…is that how the saying goes?

    Before even reading the article :
    It seems so. The man is a lightning rod and a litmus test, to check for popular support for for fascism in the USA. When the thermometer pops up, the turkey’s cooked. As theauthor of “The Rise and Fall of The Third Reich” said : “what happens when a country is taken over by gangsters”. By all accounts, a perfect fit. The USA being more dynamic and impatient than last century’s imperial Germany, it is fast-tracking straight into the endgame, without going through that embarrassing Chancellor Hindenburg phase of venerable respectability.

    HERROOOO, hope good day!!!!

    If there is a so-called dialectic, it is to funnel voters to choosing Bernie Sanders. Buffoon vs Cartoon? Better vote the Bern!

    Unfortunately, the only difference between Sanders and Obama, is that Bernie has has to lie in more detail. His Hope and Change document will have more bullet points; more devils to deceive.

    He’s still a warmonger and still supports the system that wars on Terra.

    If it is all Kabuki, these articles are part of the play.

    @Flopot: I agree. It’s simply not a tenable argument that someone as bright as Krieger is still so ‘dumb’ that he can’t see that the whole lot of ‘em, from Bernie to Trump, Rand to Hitllary, are bought and paid for. Anyone who thinks Bern is going to change things for the better needs a f***ing lobotomy.

    Trump is often mistweeted by the establishment ;)

    After reading the article.
    Practically all the statements in those interviews match almost word-for-word those in interviews by nazis and fascists the world over after the 1930’s. Specifically those by Hitler or Mussolini. Including the prostrate adulation trying to portay them as generically energetic or positively inspired – instead of as power-crazed authoritarian egotistical maniacs.

    As for the supposition that he is a good caretakef and developer, he isn’t. He has a history of gutting companies, getting out before they topple, and buying back the prize leftovers covertly, in the fire sale. You can’t administer a country with others as neighbors, by throwing under the bus large parts of it that underperform or serve narrow-minded visions of profit.

  9. YoLithos says:

    Good luck when he buys the remains of the USA through shell companies or countries, and incorporates them into his new holding-state, Trumplandia. “Only the good parts!” (unless you’re one of the masses of unionless migrant illegal temporary workers without any form of healthcare or social support -“Building prosperity!”).

  10. Flopot says:

    Lol. Whereas Bernie will call home the troops; close the bases; and roll up the Military-Industrial-Congressional-Intelligence complex in order to invest in the people of the United States.

    Dream on.
