I will not attempt to defend President Trump on any level, particularly his foreign policy. The administration is linked to repeated attempts to overthrow an elected government in Venezuela and arming Ukrainians. But given his predecessors, that is a peaceful president.
The United States has destabilized countries around the world. The Obama/Biden administration helped overthrow Libya. They also attacked Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan. It also failed to arm Ukraine.
How soon will it be before this interventionism comes back to bite America? Expect payback soon, says James Jatras, an analyst, former U.S. diplomat and foreign policy adviser to the Senate GOP leadership.
Uncertainty and a disputed outcome in the presidential election could spark an internal revolution.
“Think Florida 2000 but with several states’ results unresolved for weeks or even months,” he said in a recent Radio Sputnik interview. The interview begins about 32 minutes into the program.
What’s Good for the Goose . . .
“For those who have followed events outside the United States during the past few decades, much of this sounds familiar. We’ve seen it before – inflicted on other countries.”
Jatras reckons if Donald Trump and Joe Biden both claim victory, compounded by a “blue shift,” where states are claimed by Trump on election night flip over to Biden as additional absentee and mail-in ballots conveniently turn up days or weeks later, a violent conflict could occur.
He has written these events could be spurred on in the streets by goon squads mobilized and funded by a Who’s Who of the corporate and foundation establishment, could occur leading to a color revolution style regime change operation staged by groups like the Soros-linked “Transition Integrity Project” and managed by people like “legal hatchet man” Norm Eisen – key counsel in impeachment effort against Trump.
A color revolution is designed to keep national security bureaucrats in power. “Democracy” refers to anything they like that keeps the plutocrats in power.
Former military officers have already written the joint chiefs demanding the military remove Trump by force if he does not leave the White House Jan. 20, 2021. Could this prompt a military coup to remove Trump and install Biden in the Oval Office?
Revolver.News, suggests what happens in America next to a great extent may be a form of blowback from a specific event: the Obama/Biden-supported 2014 regime change operation in Ukraine.
A color revolution in this context refers to a specific type of coordinated attack that the United States government has been known to deploy against foreign regimes, particularly in Eastern Europe deemed to be “authoritarian” and hostile to American interests.
Rather than using a direct military intervention to effect regime change as in Iraq, color revolutions, as outlined by Michael McFaul, another anti-Trump operative, attack a foreign regime by contesting its electoral legitimacy, organizing mass protests and acts of civil disobedience, and leveraging media contacts to ensure favorable coverage to their agenda in the Western press.
The opposition, in this case Democrats, control most of the mainstream propaganda. Any doubts of that evaporated earlier this week when Facebook and Twitter spiked the New York Post article about Hunter Biden. The fracture between the progressives may put a stop to the offensive. On the other hand, violent members of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wallstreet, socialists, progressives, the Proud Boys and other fringe outfits may not need much provocation or follow orders.
