By Paul Craig Roberts

"Information Clearing House" - “Trump acknowledges Russia role in U.S. election hacking”

If this is not a fake news headline and the Reuters report is correct, Trump is bending to the pressure. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-russia-cyber-idUSKBN14S0O6

And to no avail. Intelligence officials and Senate leaders say that Trump’s admission is not enough and that he must punish Russia, not establish normal relations.

Trump is being pushed hard to validate the orchestrated “Russian Threat” on which the fortune and power of the military/security complex resides. If this report is not more fake news and Trump continues bending, he will be in the ruling establishment’s hands by the time he is inaugurated.

It is a multibillion-dollar-a-year industry that is skillfully designed and managed by public relations agencies, publicists and communications departments on behalf of individuals, government and corporations to manipulate public opinion.

Trump's Dilemma

 By George Friedman
The president-elect's ability to make changes depends on whether his support rises or falls.
Donald Trump’s presidency will have geopolitical consequences. Most of the world wants to know what he will do. But that depends on what he can do. 

Can Trump Construct a New World Order?

Trump New World Order


By Prof. Efraim Inbar 

BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 387

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Though he might be a novice in foreign policy, Donald Trump could bring about dramatic changes in the global arena by aligning with Russia against China. In this scenario, Russia would have an opportunity to align with Western civilization, ending a millennium-long schism. Will Russia be ready to end its cozy relations with the radical regime in Iran to become a true US ally in the fight against militant Islam?
