“Magnanimous Panda” Diplomacy – Secretary Tillerson and Xi Jinping Hold Talks on North Korea…

Ahead of an upcoming trip by President Donald Trump, and against the backdrop of economic sanctions by Trump/Mnuchin and the U.N. toward North Korea, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson works on the “Magnanimous Panda” strategy within the Trump Doctrine.

The ‘Big Picture’ goal is for China to accept responsibility, publicly, for spearheading the denuclearizing program within an established “six party talk” framework.  China ultimately becoming the guarantor of a denuclearized DPRK, and President Trump stroking the Panda Fur (praise) while simultaneously controlling the amount of bamboo in the Beijing forest.  So far, things are proceeding swimmingly.

BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese President Xi Jinping offered warm words for U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday, calling him a friend and saying he expected Trump’s visit to China in November would be “wonderful”.

China’s relationship with the United States has been strained by the Trump administration’s criticism of Chinese trade practices and by demands that Beijing do more to pressure North Korea to halt its nuclear weapons and missiles programs.

Xi and Trump met for the first time in person at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida in April. Trump has since played up his personal relationship with Xi, even when criticizing China over North Korea and trade.

Meeting U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson at Beijing’s Great Hall of the People, Xi said he had enjoyed his meetings with Trump and that the two had made considerable efforts to push the development of China-US relations.

“The two of us have also maintained a good working relationship and personal friendship,” Xi said, in comments in front of reporters.

“I believe that President Trump’s upcoming visit to China means an important opportunity for the further development of China-U.S. relations,” Xi added. “And I believe his visit will be a special, wonderful and successful one.”

In comments later reported by China’s Foreign Ministry, Xi added that cooperation was the only correct choice for both countries, whose common interests far outweighed their differences.

Both countries must “on the basis of respecting each other’s core interests and important concerns appropriately handle, via dialogue and consultations, differences and sensitive issues”, the statement cited Xi as saying.

Trump will travel to Asia in November for the first time since becoming president, stopping in Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines on a trip expected to be dominated by the North Korea nuclear threat.

Tillerson told Xi that Trump and his wife Melania were looking forward to going to Beijing.  (link)

In a far more hilarious, albeit somewhat related “gaslighting” story, Breitbart News is now pushing a narrative that Steve Bannon is in control of the Trump policy toward China and that Donald Trump, then candidate Trump, now President Trump, had no idea about the risk presented by China until Steve Bannon educated Trump on the issue.  Seriously, I’m not kidding… they’re selling that as reality.

Breitbart is actually headlining a story that Donald Trump is “trying to catch up” to Steve Bannon. –SEE HERE–  Apparently, Breitbart is taking a break from bashing Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump in order to sell the story that Trump’s 30-year-old China policies all came from Steve Bannon.

I seem to remember a certain candidate Cruz who attempted to do the same “co-opting policy” approach after Ted Cruz realized that MAGA Trump was going to crush the nuttery of Cruzism in the 2016 primary.  The similarity makes sense when you consider that Steve Bannon worked for the campaign of Ted Cruz from June 2014 though May of 2016, and used the platform of Breitbart to push Ted Cruz in the 2015/2016 primaries.

[There are actually people trying to gaslight the historic reality of Steve Bannon’s relationship with Donald trump right now, and denying he was a participant in Cambridge Analytica, Robert Mercer and Breitbart user data interface. Unfortunately for them we lived it, and have it all well documented in-real-time, as it was happening, in ’14, ’15, and ’16.]

After watching the Alabama “clown show“, complete with voting by horse on election day, and watching the ridiculous stories told by Bannon in his over-the-top nonsensical Charlie Rose interview, all of the earlier suspicions of how and why a political opportunist named Steve Bannon left the White House are entirely confirmed.

I’m holding off going into too much detail on what is really going on in this dynamic as I do not want to interrupt the Pied Piper or the Potemkin village as it is being constructed.  Suffice to say, things are clearly not as they seem.

Remember the term “controlled opposition“, remind yourselves to be aware of professional gaslighting, and continually reference your familiarity with the stealth strategies of the America-Second controllers.  It’s also worthwhile reminding yourself of the Alex Castellanos political strategy.  … And, oh yeah, America-First ‘MAGA’ was never originated by the duplicitous political opportunist named Steve Bannon.

Just keep watching… it’s going to become more ludicrous, and more clear, as the months progress.

Trump playing catch up on China?…

Too funny.

    I guess it’s not important whether an Australian fully understands the machinations of the US political game. I have enough trouble understanding the lunatics here. However, I have come to rely on this website to get the best perspective and for what I believe to be the truth. I feel for President Trump, so many bad dudes trying to tear down the president and his attempts to drain the swamp. The media seems to give credit to Kelly for the drop-off in leaks. I wonder whether it has more to do with Bannon and Priebus leaving the White House.
    Are Kelly and McMaster in the bad dudes camp?

    • I think Bannon was responsible for the gossip type of leaks and the inhouse feuding types of leaks. I don’t really think Priebus was a leaker….just my opinion. Kelly is a good guy doing his job so lots of people say bad things about him because he controls the flow of people to the Oval Office, but that is his job. I have no opinion on McMaster, but others here don’t like him for various reasons. IMO, so far he is doing his job.

          Maybe I’m missing something, but I thought it was a pretty good move in Alabama. Trump stumped for the establishment candidate, so he can tell the GOPe that he tried but the movement is bigger than him. He did them that favor, now they owe him to PASS A DAMN BILL! It also sends a message to the Dems that the voters are angry and they’re not going to stop with getting Trump in the WH. Bannon said only good things about Trump in Alabama. You don’t think this is a tag-team strategy?

      I wouldn’t say Brannon is a grifter. I think he deeply hates the crony capitalist trans-national hijacking of our government. But he is from the reactionary, burn it down wing of the MAGA coalition. He wants what he wants, and he wants it today, and that’s a fine position until you stop to think, what does that leave us? We have a great system, the best ever created. It got hijacked by corrupt money worshippers. If Bannon were a nuke (level everything, poison the earth for years), Trump is a neutron bomb (get rid of the corruption and the amoral careerists, but leave the institutions intact), we’re going to need them to move forward. Bannon lost the argument. We’re not going to burn it down. We’re going to rebuild, from the inside. Not as instantly gratifying, or viscerally satisfying, but a much better result for the country. Trust Trump. Bannon will come around. And he may be useful attacking the GOPe.

Trust me, some of them spend a lot of time convincing themselves that everyone else is stupid, and they are the only ones truly smart enough to see the truth. Not the way it works.

      FLepore,
      Please accept apologies if I’m hijacking this topic board with a response, but you have been spot-on with your assessment of the “I-generation.” Not only are they more conservative than their parents and grand-parents, they are more religious!

      Attached article is in reference to kids in Canada, but the article cites the research of Jean Twenge. (She was recently on Tucker Carlson Tonight, but wasn’t given nearly enough time!)

      Dr. Twenge wrote a book, published nearly 12 years ago: Generation Me. Everything we have all lamented about today’s college students was clearly predicted in her methodical, and empirical, research. Snowflakes, we call them, educated on the premise that self-esteem was far more important than actual achievement. Obviously, there are repercussions to the philosophy of always feeling good about yourself regardless of how you act or whether you learn anything or not.

      So, as referenced in this article, Twenge’s research on the up-and coming generation is quite uplifting, as are your posts!

    The problem with Breitbart, as I see it currently, is that Steve Bannon, et. al see and recognize that there really is a national political movement behind Donald Trump’s MAGA agenda.

    The first grassroots uprising in 2006 which threw GOPe out of Congress was genuinely a headless, grassroots movement. Currently with the third iteration of the tea party movement (second iteration in 2010) I believe that Bannon sees the durability of the movement and wants to be the figurehead of it.

    The danger is that I really believe that the MAGA movement will far outlast 2 terms of Trump and Bannon knows this. In the short term Bannon will be waging war against common GOPe enemies – and the establishment will not survive until 2024 work this kind of warfare – but as an ideologue himself Bannon will endeavour to morph a core American MAGA movement into an ideology with litmus tests and the like, which is not good long term. At that point the power would swing back to the Democrats.

    So short term Bannon will help get the GOPe out of the swamp but long term Bannon will be creating a different kind of swamp.

      The problem is more insidious than that. Bannon is attempting to lead the direction of the MAGA parade by getting in front of it and carrying the flag.

      Be very, VERY, wary when someone does this. It’s been done time and time before. There are trillions at stake, and there are people willing to pay billions to people like Bannon to get them to lead the MAGA parade off a cliff.

      Nothing so far is alleviating my suspicions toward that possibility. Exactly the opposite is true,… everything Bannon is doing (not saying, *doing*) is showing evidence of an intent to turn the Trump-MAGA-movement into ineffective chaos.

      How do you destroy an effective movement? You get inside it and create chaos. People pay big money to get influence agents into positions like this.

        Human beings can be the most wretched, weak creatures.
        Look at Mitch McConnell and GOP selling out all the victims of Obamacare, who have already been sold out by democrats. They have no trouble abiding the pain of the victims of failed government health care all to leverage their anti-Trump agenda. Talk about death panels…more like death sentences.
        Then there are the Teamsters in Puerto Rico. Ports filling up with relief supplies and 20% of them show up to drive aid supplies to their suffering fellow islanders, this because their agenda is all about leveraging all that pain and suffering into a better contract.
        Then there are all the various individuals in the Trump White House who come up with any number of agendas to threaten the good work of our President. They are no better than never Trumpers or Democrats.
        The only person who doesn’t have anything to gain except as it relates to the American people is the President.
        All the weak humans are pushing their own agendas, trying to exploit crises for their own aggrandizement.

        Request: Post a thread on Judge Jeanine’s show tonight…

        Jason Chaffetz disclosed that when he asked Attorney General Sessions if he would prosecute many of the top government corruption cases, Sessions said he WOULD NOT.

        Bonus Post opportunity: After noting that President Trump let Secretary Price go for private-jet misuse, Judge Jeanine noted that Mueller was guilty of the same. Firing opportunity for corruption?

        The main problem that Bannon is going to have as far as pulling that off is that Trump is appealing fundamentally to patriotism and is a unifying force across the entire political spectrum. I think people are tired of the political fighting and want to come together to take care of each other. Bannon will be rejected/ignored by these people.

        Bannon can try to take credit but people are going to remember Trump getting ahead of the immigration issue before he announced, they’re gonna remember that he kept his promises, and they’re gonna remember him being a unifying force in the face of forces that seek to tear it apart with fearmongering and ideological grandstanding.

        We’ll end up telling Bannon to go pound sand and make MAGA.

        Thank you Sundance. I have been hoping you will do an article on this. I am reposting my comment from a thread yesterday. I believe that it will add to the discussion here.
        September 30, 2017 at 1:51 am
        Visited Breitbart again and have had a lightbulb moment to what is going on. Remembering that Bannon is a hired help and the real power is the Mercers and Larry Solov who pay his wages. I think that they are positioning themselves to be the new “kingmakers” of the Republican party.

        They are using Pres Trump as their springboard but remember that they originally did not support him. They constantly say they are doing things to “help” him but the articles are put downs of him. This conflict is evident. They need him as their figurehead, but they don’t want him. They wanted Cruz who is a globalist. There is no whitewashing of what they originally wanted and I for one will not let anyone forget this.

        They are positioning Bannon as the new Authority on China Policy Guru and saying that Pres Trump is only now following on (again after Bannon). I haven’t heard much from Gorka but as foreign affairs was his speciality, perhaps he is being sidelined in order to boost Bannon’s star.

        There is a need for someone to organize at a grass roots level throughout the Nation, opposition to the Uniparty. I think they have seen this and decided to step into the role. This is a good move, because President Trump cannot do this himself, he is too busy obviously. Even Trump has his time limits. Someone has to do it.

        My worry is that this is another group of people hiding behind something, hiding who they are, trying to be in control and if they succeed, in view of their innate hostility to Trump, will cause more trouble for him. Certainly, most articles undermine him now, and treat him as if he were dumb.

    Bannon is despicable and certainly no Andrew Breitbart! I was not happy when he went to the WH and even more unhappy with all the divisive palace gossip that he was leaking and creating… and continues to do with the constant Cohn/Jared/Ivanka bashing.

    The very fact that he thinks he can steal President Trump’s platform, and claim that Trump is not up to speed on China is LAUGHABLE!!!! The whole reason I was so excited about Trump running was because of his China position. I have followed him for a long time, and watched/listened to all his many interviews on the subject.

    Bannon is nothing but a leech and a traitor to MAGA. He is hurting our cause and he needs to cease and desist with the Trump bashing going on at Breitbart. I am sick of it.

    It is quite clear that they (Bannon/Mercer) are taking over (or think they are) and pushing Cruz types. Well, I fully expect Moore to go down in flames by the time Jones et al are done with him. Maybe that will be the slap Bannon needs to deflate his emboldened ego.

      He has vowed to go into every upcoming state, find a MAGA candidate similar to Roy Moore, and run them against the GOPe incumbent.

      We just watched GOPe spend 30 million bucks on Strange, Moore almost nothing in comparison, and Moore whip strange’s patutie…..

      I love this MAGA candidate team of Bannon, Sarah Palin, Nigel Farage and a few others. It is like a super-PAC of personalities and I see it as a lethal weapon in this day and age…..

      Agree Wolf.

      In addition let’s do the math.

      SD wrote, “Apparently, Breitbart is taking a break from bashing Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump in order to sell the story that Trump’s 30-year-old China policies all came from Steve Bannon.”

      Bannon is 63. To formulate Trump’s 30 yr China policy, Bannon started when he was ~33 yo, 1986. Let’s review his background.

      1976 – graduated VA Tech in Urban Planning
      Date UNK: Georgetown U. School of Foreign Service, Masters in National Security
      Date UNK : Harvard Bus. School, Master of Business Administration

      1976-1983: US Navy: Pacific Fleet, Pentagon (attended Georgetown at night), Persian Gulf during Iran hostage crisis. Became pro-Reagan. “I wasn’t political until I got into the service and saw how badly Jimmy Carter f—ed things up. I became a huge Reagan admirer. Still am. But what turned me against the whole establishment was coming back from running companies in Asia in 2008 and seeing that Bush had f—ed up as badly as Carter.”

      Around 1986 would be the beginning of Bannon’s “30-yr China policy formulation” and this is what he was doing: investment banking (Goldman Sachs, Bannon & Co), Entertainment Industry & Media (film producer, documentaries), Breibart News, Cambridge Analytica (Mercer), plus many other jack-of-all-trade experiences.

      Plus, married/divorced 3x.

      Wikipedia details his Overview And Influences, but China isn’t referenced.

      IMO Bannon doesn’t have the life experiences or general interest in China to formulate a China policy – much less Trump’s. Who is he kidding?

    I listened to Breitbart News on Satellite for a couple of months when it first came on the air. As the site/show became very Pro Cruz and Anti-Trump, I stopped paying attention. When Bannon joined the campaign, I started paying attention to him and listened to the show this week as he was on for a couple hours a day. My opinion is that his relationship with POTUS is complex. I think what Sundance says has merit, but I think Bannon had a conversion when he realized Trump was better than Cruz. I am wary of his ego and the vulnerability it could create, but I don’t think he’s working at odds to POTUS’ agenda. As Sundance said, time will tell, but for now, I’m giving this the benefit of the doubt. Just my 2 cents.

The Bushes and the Kochs own all of them even Hilderbeast who Trump slung down. We need to ask the question? What if Trump never decided to run? Hillary Clinton would be your President and the fundamental transformation would continue. The fact that he picked off 19 candidates 16 of them globalist means people were paying attention. They are still trying to undermine his campaign. However, where this site is wrong is and you can look it up for yourself. Is that Judge Moore was prosecuted by President Bush 2 and guess who helped him prosecute Judge Moore.?Ted Cruz . He was the assistant attorney general until they got mad at him and removed him from his post. Moore is a good man if a democrat gets that seat its over for Trump.Luther Strange has a horrible voting record check it out on the New American site he voted against our President 3 out of 5 times.

      No it’s not!
      It is only for a ONE YEAR TERM.

      If the Democrat wins that seat, it’s on Bannon & Co, for betraying our President.

      We will get the chance to get that seat back next year, during the regularly scheduled election.

    Um… is that actually true, that Trump and Kingpin are friends? Seems rather odd, from where I’m sitting (typing madly away on my computer in the dark, Joe Dan. :P)

    Also Mercer went to Trump and gave him the same tools he gave Ted Cruz. The Trump app which I have was made by Cambridge analytical and Mercer made Ted Cruz give back his 15 million dollars. I know because I know Ted Personally and asked what he was doing running for President and that he was going to make a fool of himself becuase he did not listen and his buddy Levin is a horrible human bieng who claims to love Trump but he really hates him. He just wants to sell books.

    I am in complete agreement with Sundance’s estimation of Mr Bannon. I am beating a dead horse, but it bears repeating; Bannon’s statements on China depend entirely on who is paying, and to what audience it is directed. In his paid Citic (big Chinese state owned investment bank) speech in Hong Kong he was all soft and cuddly on China even to the extent of praising their command and control economy and state planning. He switches hats like Bartholomew Cubbins. Even the perfidious press has begun to notice.

    If you haven’t seen this I am posting this from 14 August 2017.
    WTAS: Praise President Donald J. Trump’s Memorandum on Chinese Trade Practices
    https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/08/14/wtas-praise-president-donald-j-trumps-memorandum-chinese-trade-practices

    It is not until 26 September that the brummagem Mr Bannon was back to targeting China and sounding as though the above memorandum the President issued on trade that was roundly praised, never happened.

      Thanks that Bloomberg article gets me riled up anew. With regard to his Hong Kong trip, that was when he told China that military options against NK were off the table. As he had just left the White House employment, it is highly likely they might believe him, as an insider with knowledge, and that could cause serious miscalculation. As a “strategist” he is as good as my aunt nellie, or was the strategy to undermine Pres Trump? Either way, that smelt.

      Oh you’re not beating a ‘dead horse’, A2.

      That horse is very much alive and galloping around.
      So please keep whacking on it.

      “says Bannon, who introduced Moore at his victory rally. “Now, our focus is on recruiting candidates to take over the Republican Party.””

      Not reforming it.
      Not readjusting it.

      No! Taking it over!

    The Breitbart thing is just too predictable. I posted this comment a few days ago:

    “When North Korea is collapsing and Kim Jong-Un is either forced out or forced to give up the nukes, without a single military strike from the US, watch for people like Alex Jones, Mike Cernovich, Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka to take credit.”

    Mooch was right about Steve Bannon building his own brand off the strength of the President. If only he didn’t have loose lips talking to the media…

    President Trump needs to make it plain that Bannon is ALL THE WAY OUT of the WH; otherwise, there’s the distinct possibility that China’s perception of Bannon’s viewpoints and his talking points could actually damage relations with China before Trump has a chance to finish up this NK crapola!

    Bannon meeting with Kissinger…and Breitbart runs an article critical of Pres Trump’s policy towards China.

    Kissinger has always been proud of the role he played in ‘Opening up China’ to trade with the US.
    It is pretty much the biggest part of his legacy.
    Yeah…thanks for that, Henry.

    His involvement with China didn’t stop when he left our State Department, though.

    From Wiki:
    “In September 1989, the Wall Street Journal’s John Fialka disclosed that Kissinger took a direct economic interest in US-China relations in March 1989 with the establishment of China Ventures, Inc., a Delaware limited partnership, of which he was chairman of the board and chief executive officer. A US$75 million investment in a joint venture with the Communist Party government’s primary commercial vehicle at the time, China International Trust & Investment Corporation (CITIC), was its purpose. Board members were major clients of Kissinger Associates.
    Kissinger was criticised for not disclosing his role in the venture when called upon by ABC’s Peter Jennings to comment the morning after the June 4, 1989, Tiananmen crackdown. Kissinger’s position was generally supportive of Deng Xiaoping’s clearance of the square and he opposed economic sanctions.[35]”

    So Kissinger was financially involved with CITIC.
    And Bannon went over and spoke before a gathering of CITIC.

    Interesting.
    Was that where Bannon blurted out his statement about North Korea, that a military solution was “off the table”?

    Kissinger would probably be against PDJT’s hardline stance on trade with China…since he has a history of being so chummy with them.

    Now…who else would be against any hardline stance on trade with China?
    Silicon Valley, probably.
    They get a lot of their stuff made in China, don’t they?

    Hollywood has been getting a lot of investment from China, too.

    What is Bannon really up to.

    I thought the comments would be about US/China policy. Instead it’s about 90% Bannon bashing. What a waste of time.
