Dr. Sebastian Gorka Discusses New Geo-Political Alliances with Brian Kilmeade…

Are people beginning to catch on? Are people beginning to identify the long-ball strategy of a non-traditional approach toward geo-political alliances?

Apparently, some are – because North Korea is not happy with the heavy pressure coming from Big Panda, China.  As identified within this radio interview between Dr. Gorka and Brian Kilmeade…

.

I don’t want to say, I told you so but:

Perhaps it’s because the complexity is difficult to distill; maybe it’s because some just can’t give President Trump any credit; or perhaps it’s because the scope is too challenging to comprehend against the constant belittlement meme du jour. Regardless of reason, President Trump is fundamentally realigning international geo-political alliances and almost no-one is connecting the dots.

President Trump obviously held a long-ball strategy with the Chinese; he’s described the approach in his books and lived the approach in his business life:

At the outset, position yourself at the furthest oppositional point when it costs you nothing; then leverage inward toward your opponent as they expend their resources to meet your stance.

Almost no-one is noting the scope of what President Trump has accomplished simply by positioning himself at the furthest extreme from the best interests of China, and then working his leverage back toward dual-interests as the Chinese expend capital to meet the point of mutual benefit.

President Trump has expended nothing other than his sheer will, and yet he has leveraged gains that are jaw-droppingly consequential.

♦ What’s the goal of identifying China as a currency manipulator? To stop China from manipulating currency, right? Well, arm-chair opposition says President Trump has reversed his position simply by ‘not doing something’. However, that opposition doesn’t seem to acknowledge the end-goal of the labeling has been achieved without expending an effort. The doing is unnecessary when merely the threat of the doing changes the behavior of the doer.

In two days, April 6th and April 7th, President Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping. What actions has President Trump taken, other than ‘not’ doing something, and what actions has President Xi Jinping taken?

At the outset, position yourself at the furthest oppositional point when it costs you nothing, and leverage inward toward your opponent as they expend their resources to meet your stance.

Think about this when considering the consequences:

♦ China agrees to the framework of a 100 day outline to assemble the trade way-points for renegotiated bi-lateral trade deals.

What did that action cost Trump?

♦ For the first time ever, China did not support Russia in a U.N. Security Council veto vote surrounding Syria. China abstained.

What did that action cost Trump?

♦ China turned around 12 fully loaded cargo ships laden with imported coal from North Korea. 400,000 metric tonnes refused unloading. China begins an embargo against North Korean coal. China begins importing coking coal for steel-making from the U.S. coal mines.

What did that action cost Trump?

♦ Additionally, in furtherance of economic sanctions – China halts oil exports to North Korea.

What did that action cost Trump?

♦ Additionally, in furtherance of political isolation – China halts direct flights between Beijing, China and Pyongyang, North Korea.

What did that action cost Trump?

♦ And in the most stunning seismic shift of geo-political alliances, China says it is now open to discussions of a denuclearized North Korea, meaning getting rid of N-Korean nukes, WITHOUT N-Korea being included in the talks. Hello? China, the United States, Japan, Russia and South Korea discussing how to de-nuke North Korea. (A new Marshal Plan of sorts)

What did that action cost Trump?

See how this works? What affirmative action did President Trump have to take in order to get China to move toward the position of mutual benefit?

Answer: None!

Foolish people think President Trump doesn’t know what he’s doing. Again:

…Position yourself at the furthest oppositional point when it costs you nothing, and leverage inward toward your opponent as they expend their resources to meet the position of mutual benefit…

To gain all of the aforementioned action, massive benefits in U.S. interests, President Trump has done what?

“Not” labeling China as a currency manipulator is not affirmative action. It is actually the absence of action; POTUS Trump is not doing something. President Trump positioned himself at the furthest oppositional point during the election, and immediately thereafter.

He staked out this position with an intention to leverage action toward his needs.

The affirmative action President Trump is doing, very publicly, is complimenting the friendship he has begun with Xi Jinping; and praising President Xi for his character, warmth and leadership.

To build upon that mutually beneficial friendship – President Trump seeded the background by appointing Ambassador Terry Branstad, a 30-year personal friend of President Xi Jinping.

To enhance and amplify the friendship and personal respect – U.S. President Trump used Mar-a-Lago as the venue for their visit, not the White House. And President Trump’s beautiful granddaughter, Arabella, sweetly serenaded the Chinese First Family in Mandarin Chinese song showing the utmost respect for the honored guests.

Unfortunately most people are unfamiliar with the severity of Chinese tradition as it relates to family and respect. However, these gestures are intensely well received. Russia’s Vladimir Putin can deliver nothing even remotely comparable to the charm of the granddaughter of the U.S. President singing for President Xi and his wife in their native tongue.

Do not underestimate the value of these gestures and how it was perceived by the recipients as personal respect – far above the level of traditional political respect which would be customary during such encounters. President Trump made this visit personal, and his words after the meeting were all personal, not positional.

Whether or not people want to give President Trump credit for the approach, no-one should be able to challenge the outcomes all listed above.

Grandfather President Trump has highlighted Grandfather President Xi as a person, not a political figure. Trump sets the relationship as personal, and with mutual human benefit.

One thing is certain, North Korea will NOT make any hostile action toward the U.S. because President Trump has elevated President Xi to a role beyond politics in the words highlighted within Chinese media. The panda fur has not only been stroked perfectly, it has been elevated in its own magnanimity without even so much as a bow.

As a consequence it would now be a matter of personal disrespect for North Korea’s Kim Jung-un to take hostile action toward the U.S. President who has exhibited such personal respect to the regional Goliath.

Three things appear odd:

  • #1) How no-one amid almost all media can see how effective this approach by President Trump has been; and
  • #2) Nothing has been expended in order to achieve these remarkable results; and
  • #3) Accepting all of the above, Donald Trump has planned this out for a long, long time.

Oh, Hai..

        There’s no comparison between Barry and PDJT.

        Uninhibited respect and deference to China’s cultural fabric has shown PDJT to be a man due the presidential position he occupies. The Syrian false flag, however distasteful, was timed effectively to round out a full measure of our President’s character. Hopefully the mutual respect will hold fast, and pave the way for the South China Sea deliberations which are still to come.

      Agree with M33. Also want to add… China has an ancient, and different culture, but respect for family is the way it *used to be* here, also.

      I don’t grovel before Chinese culture. However, I frequently watch China Television along with my elderly client, and much of it appears with subtitles (although drats, often the English is so low on the screen that I can’t decipher it. Should anyone from CCTV happen across this message, some of the most interesting shows are the most frustrating because of the subtitle problem!)

      The values being broadcast on CCTV are positive: persistence, hard work, respect for family and elders; essentially, all the Puritan values that I grew up with and respect from my own background. Bottom line, fellow citizens: if you haven’t ditched cable, you wouldn’t suffer by letting your children or grandchildren watch CCTV. It’s a lot more wholesome than the current stew of depressing sewage so often pumped on the American channels

      I think Sundance is giving the media too much credit. No-one is connecting the dots for two reasons:
      1) It does not fit their political agenda
      2) Even if it did fit their bias, not very many of them are smart enough to connect the dots.
      I’ve seen this all my life. Sundance is a VERY smart guy. It’s almost a version of self-projection that he assumes that if he can see it – others can too. It’s not a character flaw, it’s actually being subconsciously charitable (lol)

    Respect is never faked. Respect faked is an insult. Trump actually respects China and their leader. And respect from a fool, or a wimp, a scoundrel, a liar, a coward, a loser, an untested man, etc, is worthless. How did China make Obama deplane from Airforce 1?

    Never believe that Trump expended no capital, Trump expended a lifetime of capital to earn the respect Xi showed him. And, for China, North Korea is an expense, a drag, a problem now and a worse one in the future. What Trump is doing is helping China out of their problem. You just have to understand reality.

    China owes Trump for helping them with North Korea. Obama couldn’t because an empty suit carries no weight. Trump is the heavyweight. Tillerson can only be TRex because Trump is not an empty suit.

      Donald Trump: Business students should read Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War”

      Back in school, I spent time studying wars and their impact on where we are today in civilization. That’s a big assignment and I’m by no means an expert, but it is worth spending some time to know how and why we are where we are today.

      One book that I would suggest to you, because it is valuable for business and managerial strategies, is “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu. This was apparently written in the sixth century BC and is a study of military strategy. It may sound like an unusual business school recommendation, but believe me, it isn’t. It’s valuable and worth your time.

      By comparison, another famed book is Machiavelli’s The Prince, which is more about political conflict and qualities necessary for leadership than war or business, but its emphasis on power becomes a negative factor. Ethics and integrity seem to get lost somewhere in the shuffle, and therefore the word Machiavellian has become a pejorative term. It’s a better use of your time to read “The Art of War.”

      Here’s my take:

      Most can’t see it, but some refuse to live by the truth of it because they are actively being…

      bad guys. And, they know they are bad guys. They KNOW IT.

      Just watch any Randolph Scott movie.

      Or, John Wayne, for that matter. He’s the full deal. The bad guys always want all the money, usually at the expense of the good guy. Or, at the expense of the innocent townspeople.

      So, our president is THE good guy, and he’s fighting on our behalf…tons of bad guys.

      Also, the head bad guy usually is the well respected rich seemingly respectable person in a position of power. Sometimes… a politician, or a banker.

      My take – YMMV

    #1) How no-one amid almost all media can see how effective this approach by President Trump has been; and

    Thiss one is the question, indeed. The media either knows how effective Trump has been and refuses to give him credit, or they are too dumb to figure it out.

    BTW, the Brian Kilmeade radio show is on opposite Laura, and I find myself liking his show better than hers.

      Both at the same time. They know he’s winning big league (and it’s scaring the shee-ite out of them) without giving him credit AND they have no idea how he’s doing it. (In conspiracy mode, they probably actually believe Putin is helping him, lol)

    Trump is not going to allow some nutjob, with nukes, to threaten his progeny or the US.

    He takes his role as father, grandfather & President very seriously when it comes to those most elemental issues.

    Just like Reagan.

    Iran is next.

      Iran = Saudi Arabia, Iran is just more open about their intentions. Saudi Arabia is waging political war against us. The real threat of Islam is from political war, not kinetic war.

    This is the absolute stark truth. The DhimmiRats, Libtards, Ly’nStream Traitors are bewildered by Trump’s success. All they can do is throw tantrums, scream and cry, still.

          Thought you might enjoy this. Got it from a poster on BB.

          There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
          Trump won 3,084 of them.
          Clinton won 57.
          There are 62 counties in New York State.
          Trump won 46 of them.
          Clinton won 16.
          Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
          In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond)
          Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
          These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
          The United States is comprised of 3, 797,000 square miles.
          When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
          Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of our country.

  27. Building on Sundance’s insight:

    “ ‘Not’ labeling China as a currency manipulator is not affirmative action. It is actually the absence of action; POTUS Trump is not doing something.”

    Trump’s BONUS:

    Soon Congress will be railing against Trump for the “empty threat” to sanction China for “something” … deflecting from their own failure to contribute to MAGA.

    Trump then cuts a deal to address trade with China ONLY after Congress passes the Trump Agenda.

    Sec T-Rex at ASEAN meeting discussed NK and the Southern sea disputes resolutions. The article reports that Duterte said ‘his phone conversation with Xi was at the behest of Trump, who called the Philippine leader at the end of the Asean summit in Manila on April 29.’

    ‘Asean ministers marked the 40th anniversary of Asean-US relations, and expressed “eagerness” to meet President Trump, who is expected to attend in November the 5th Asean-US Summit and the 12th East Asia Summit in the Philippines, and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Vietnam.’

    Seems the People’s Bank of China has caught on.

    From Pan Gongsheng, a vice governor of the central bank, the People’s Bank of China.
    “China has no intention of raising competitiveness via currency devaluation. It does not have this wish, and it also does not have this need,” Pan wrote in a weekend piece in Chinese magazine Modern Bankers.

    Such excellent analysis by SD. Aren’t we blessed to have such a man as our President? He is so much more than I ever thought he would be. He has so far exceeded my expectations that he could spend the rest of his term just playing golf and I’d think we had been well served.

    When President Trump announced, my two picks had been Perry and Walker. Well, Walker was uninspriing (although a good guy) and Perry just didn’t have any charisma.

    So I ordered and read The Art of the deal, which I had thought was a boring business book.I was wrong.

    What that book revealed to me was a guy with a very creative way of thinking, and one who could keep a lot of balls in the air while keeping track of them.

    Then I went to YouTuube and found interviews over the last 30 years, with everyone from Charlie Rose to Oprah. He was consitent in his beliefs about trade and government wastefulness.

    The best video I found was his appearance before th Senate Oversight Committee concerning the cost overruns in the remodeling of the UN building. Here it is:

    After all of this, I knew he would win.

      Miss Marple, I salute you. Truly. You are amazing. You spent a lot of time and made a lot of effort to research your choice for President, and you made an informed (and extremely intelligent decision) from a place of knowledge. You used your intellect rather than your intuition, emotion, or what the MSM told you.

      I still haven’t read The Art of the Deal and I read A LOT. I, too, assumed it would be a sort of dull business book and I have read enough of that kind of thing to last me a lifetime. I’m going to have to get a copy and read it. Obviously I spent most of my life “misunderestimating” Donald Trump. Not anymore. Each and every day my opinion of him ratchets up just a little higher, and by now it is pretty darned high.

  34. The contrast between the Chinese with Pres Obama and Pres Trump is stark. Pres Trump gives genuine respect and gets genuine respect in return. Pres Obama was forced to exit Air Force One through the back entrance because of a supposed “mistake” with the rolling stairway on the runway. “Mistake” my eye. It was a deliberate insult. Obama was too arrogant to notice. Pres Trump does his homework to understand the nuances of Chinese honor. It’s not just hard work, it’s brilliance.

      I’m Just Saying’–A couple of us had an exchange either earlier today or yesterday on another thread talking about the similarities between the Obama years and the Harry Potter books and also The Hunger Games. Another Harry Potter analogy keeps hitting me every little bit as I read here, and your comment brought it to mind again. Harry Potter’s last year of school and the year after that involved hunting down Horcruxes, objects with bits of the soul of the evil Lord Voldemort contained in them. As they found each Horcrux and destroyed it, just when you think you have won, the Horcrux would put up a desperate ugly fight because it could tell the end was nearing. Kind of like Nancy Pelosi’s enraged screeches…

To have a realtime front-row seat to the genius of his strategy is such a gift. The resistance is on the wrong side of history. I feel lucky to witness the right side.

    I hope you’ve got several backups for all of your writings, Sundance, as you are one of a few whose work will lend insight to future generations – I have no doubt.

    Good article SD. Love the jab ” without so much as a bow”. Funny. There is something you stated in your article that the progs should pay attention to. It’s a funny thing about commies and socialist in general. Their leaders all want to be seen as a great respected INDIVIDUAL. But they expect everyone else to be a nameless collective with no individual achievements.

    I have been saying this even while Trump was a candidate – you don’t get to be this successful nor have 32K employees working with you for years if you do not treat them as human beings! The Art of the Deal that Trump has and does use works. A politician would approach our worldwide contacts mostly wrongly and cause tension where here Trump gets what we need and no tension, but a mutual respect for each. Now, that is a leader! We all wish to be respected and treated as human beings, while others such as the globalists/protesters/naysayers don’t get it and think being against what America and Trump are and want is wrong. We have come a long way in just over 100 days and I look forward to this following 100 days. God sent us Trump because we prayed long and hard for recovering our America! I also enjoy being able to communicate with Trump, listen to the various secretaries/appointees, and definitely Sean Spicer. We have been blessed so enjoy that we didn’t lose to communism and let’s move to MAGA even sooner.
