Kissinger On Trump World Order: “The President-Elect Is A Personality… American Policy Evolving”
A now-ancient Henry Kissinger is still the de facto manager of the Anglo-establishment wing of the new world order. And he still holds tremendous power and influence over world affairs.
And in true fashion, the realpolitik mastermind is prepared to embrace any president, just made remarks urging people not to prejudge Donald Trump – because his administration could create some useful policy.
It seems that President-elect Trump could become a good disciple after all.
Speaking on world peace, a topic for which he was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, Henry Kissinger gave a tacit endorsement to the next elected president, hinting at his acceptance among the upper echelons of the true power base in this country.
While the figures in the media and Washington are still sending mixed signals and attacking Trump on every front, behind the scenes, things may not be so rocky. Kissinger states:
““No doubt, the president-elect is a personality for whom there is no precedent in modern American history… Before postulating an inevitable crisis, an opportunity should be given to the new administration to put forward its vision of international order. the international debate should be over evolving American policy, not campaign rhetoric.
Kissinger has, of course, met with Trump many times in the past, and at least twice in recent weeks as the transition to the White House takes shape.
As Kurt Nimmo previously reported, these are also NOT Kissinger’s first public comments regarding how Trump’s campaign rhetoric will not match the policy of his administration:
Kissinger argued that it is counterproductive to demand absolute consistency from presidential administrations, particularly in the face of fluid international situations.
“The art now would be to develop a strategy that is sustainable, that meets the concerns that have appeared during the campaign but that can be linked to some of the main themes of American foreign policy.”
And you doubted that the shadow government would insert its hand into the puppeteer’s end of the incoming administration?
Here’s the details about Kissinger’s latest remarks via RT:
The personality of Donald Trump has “no precedent” in modern US history, but he should be given a chance to put forward his policies, Henry Kissinger said, highlighting the president-elect’s potential to shape global politics and keep to the US tradition of “building world peace.”
Speaking at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum in Oslo, Norway, on the issue of “World Peace after the US Presidential Election,” the 93-year-old former diplomat and Nobel Prize winner dispelled fears of the looming cataclysm of Trump’s presidency.
In his speech, Kissinger pointed out four trends that may lead to greater conflicts and greater challenges during Trump’s presidency.
The worsening of relations between the US and China, and the breakdown in relations between Russia and the West were cited as the biggest challenges. In addition, the weakening of Europe’s strategic importance and an escalation of conflicts in the Middle East, were named as the biggest threats to world peace.
This is not the first time that Kissinger has defended the upcoming 45th president, after the two met at least twice this year – one time during the presidential race in May, and the second time in November after Trump’s victory.
Henry Kissinger famously came out to give President-elect Obama a chance as well, despite his traditional Republic stripes inside several administrations, and as a legacy advisor who represents the establishment line.
Just after the 2008 election, Kissinger remarked on Obama’s great opportunity to create a new world order – with his fresh face and great reception around the world.
Henry Kissinger: “Obama will create a New World Order”
Kissinger says about then-President-elect Obama:
“The president-elect is coming into office at a moment when there is upheaval in many parts of the world simultaneously. You have India, Pakistan; you have the jihadist movement. So he can’t really say there is one problem, that it’s the most important one. But he can give new impetus to American foreign policy partly because the reception of him is so extraordinary around the world. His task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period when, really, a new world order can be created. It’s a great opportunity, it isn’t just a crisis.”
Donald Trump represents a different brand of that fresh-face strategy, though his rhetoric has already been off-putting to many adversaries and allies alike.
Nonetheless, President-elect Trump’s personality and campaign torpedoes will have little bearing on his foreign and domestic policy as President. Few administrations fulfill or reflect the hopeful tone of the campaign – that is true across the board, but especially disappointing for those who have advertised real change.
There is reason to believe that Kissinger’s confidence in Trump is weighted in the appointments he is making to his cabinet and administration. With a mixture of Wall Street power brokers, neocons and defense hawks, as well as establishment party loyalists, the powers that be will likely steer the great ship U.S.S. of A. into the path that they have planned for.
Interestingly, the Council on Foreign Relations, the quiet sponsor of the North American Union plan, has advocated shifting back to the home front and specifically to change policies to allow for exporting energy domestically. They would expand pipelines, power grids and drilling operations from Canada to Mexico; eventually they want to build a pipeline to Central America to supply client states with energy, too.
