Alan Dershowitz Discusses “Calm Before The Storm”…

At times Alan Dershowitz can express insufferable political opinions that can make blood pressure cuffs explode.  At other times, on the libertarian side of liberty principles, Dershowitz becomes an ally against the insufferable overbearing administrative state. He’s an odd duck, but carries a quacker worth hearing.

In this segment, the subject matter is well outlined. However, that said, along with every single person in media and punditry, Dershowitz is not connecting President Trump action to the economics of the Trump foreign policy doctrine.


If people would spend more time studying DJT they’d see the foreign policy strategy of President Trump clear as day. POTUS Trump surrounds himself, optically and vocally, with the overwhelming appearance of military solution providers. This is not accidental; it is entirely by design.

The art of war, Trump’s war, is to continually present overwhelming evidence of specific action – such that the overwhelming nature of the evidence forces adversaries to focus on a very specific focal or view-point. As a consequence all countering adversarial activity or considerations are focused on the wrong place.

President Trump says “calm before the storm” while he is surrounded by military generals and military commanders. The natural conclusion is the storm involves military generals and military commanders. It doesn’t. But that’s the very nature of the Trump’s strategy.

President Trump has one battle-space, one inherent geography, where he can crush any American adversary. He lulls people into taking their eyes off Trump’s primary weapon. No-one ever sees it coming because all focus is toward the fife music and drum sounding.

By the time insurgent Trump deploys the economic MOAB’s, adversaries are too far behind…. No reactions can respond appropriately enough… He’s already gamed out every possible economic response and economic action.  He’s controlling the leverage.

          I dont always agree with Dersh’s politics, but he is brilliant, and holds the US constitution up high. Trump could do worse than to bring him on in some capacity. Trump is not a hard core conservative, much like me. I love fiscally conservative policy, but being from a large ethnically diverse city, I recognize the need for certain social policy that I dont necessarily agree with personally, and realize that if you fail to be accommodating to anyone who disagrees with you, both sides utimately get nothing. The kind of gridlock the US has been suffering for the past 10 years.

            Cleaner . . . Dershowitz admires Hillary, voted for her and thinks she’d have made a wonderful president. Just think about that. what kind of man who is as smart as he is, would have such opinions. No white hat would want Hillary for president.. Yes, I believe he loves liberty and the Constitution, but if he got the president he wanted, America as we know it would not exist. That’s what the black hats work for. I think Dershowitz enjoys his sudden popularity. I do not see him in this administration, ever.


            • Thecleaner says:

              Thats the attitude i was referring too….shit Trump donated to half the Democratic party over the years. Its the all or nothing attitude that always leads to always nothing. To govern in the American system you must compromise. My point being Dersh is the type of Dem that could help fascilitate common ground to move an agenda. If you want no help from anybody who has supported Hillary, the pull a sheet over your head until 2024 and get used to the status quo cuz nothing will get done…thats a fact.

  2. President Trump needs to go on OFFENSE to expand ability to find terrorists before they strike and eliminate National Security risks created by the Awan Brothers.

    1 – Announce legislation that will monitor “Social Media” beginning with Facebook and Twitter communications, on the grounds that they are “Social” and therefore “Not Private”.

    2 – Direct the National Security Council to unmask all communications accessed but the Awan Brothers to identify all members of Congress and the federal government who are now subject to blackmail and extortion that might compromise National Security.

    3 – Direct AG Sessions to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate the Awan Brothers’ crimes by assembling a team comprised of ALL America-First Prosecutors, none of which have conflicts of interest as past donors to Democrats and anyone who communicated with Democrats associated with or exposed by the Awan Brothers.

He’s crafty; but left without anyone propping him up, he couldn’t be elected to a city council. Without the affirmative action background, the best he could have accomplished was some kind of associate arts certificate from a community college. He had an entire group of shadowy types moving him forward. Discovering their collective identity really would be the story of the century. But not with today’s media types.

    Probably caused our foreign enemies to place their mil forces, at least the mil leadership, on a heightened alert status. Causes most of them to waste energy in prep for a non-event. They can only stay at alert for so long before they lose their focus. May cause them to over-react and make mistakes.

      They do not give a crap about the USA or about people. All they care about is accumulating wealth and power.

      The left has two main branches. Communists = violent revolution and Fabians = gradual ‘progress’ but the goal of both is the same and the will cooperate.

      Straight from Fabian co-founder George Bernard Shaw

      “The moment we face it frankly we are driven to the conclusion that the community has a right to put a price on the right to live in it … If people are fit to live, let them live under decent human conditions. If they are not fit to live, kill them in a decent human way. Is it any wonder that some of us are driven to prescribe the lethal chamber as the solution for the hard cases which are at present made the excuse for dragging all the other cases down to their level, and the only solution that will create a sense of full social responsibility in modern populations?”
      Source: George Bernard Shaw, Prefaces (London: Constable and Co., 1934), p. 296.

      “Under Socialism, you would not be allowed to be poor. You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught, and employed whether you liked it or not. If it were discovered that you had not character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed in a kindly manner; but whilst you were permitted to live, you would have to live well.”

        Let’s hope that Betsy DeVos will induce the educational sector to move from what we might call “Transactional History” to “Consequential History”.

        The rote nature of traditional Transactional History has enabled the Left to scrub key events from the curriculum, disconnect cause from effect and preoccupy students with governmental failure rather than our American model for success along with the things that enable, constrain and undermine it.

        Consequential History would focus relentlessly on cause-and-effect, along with how governments have used them for the good – and mostly the bad. It could develop critical thinking through practical application, including ways to empower the good and thwart the bad, etc.

          Ignoring Elites, Historians Are Missing a Major Factor in Politics and History:
          Steve Fraser, Gary Gerstel (2005)

          “[…]Over the last quarter-century, historians have by and large ceased writing about the role of ruling elites in the country’s evolution. Or if they have taken up the subject, they have done so to argue against its salience for grasping the essentials of American political history. Yet there is something peculiar about this recent intellectual aversion, even if we accept as true the beliefs that democracy, social mobility, and economic dynamism have long inhibited the congealing of a ruling stratum. This aversion has coincided, after all, with one of the largest and fastest-growing disparities in the division of income and wealth in American history….Neglecting the powerful had not been characteristic of historical work before World War II[…]. ”

            Elites have individually amassed more wealth than nation states.

            Buying off ‘historians” – or threatening those who won’t (initially) be bought – is a penny-ante pastime.


          • That is a brilliant observation, G. The basic difference between a Communist and the Fabian Socialist is a matter of degree of societal transformation. The end goal is the same.

            The Communists want to rush in with guns and just do it, as in Lenin, Castro, Che Guevara, Maduro and so on…..But the Fabians are much smarter.

            Their mascot is the turtle–a very slow but steady pace over decades. Don’t throw the frog into a boiling kettle…..He will not like it and he will try to jump out.

            Just put the frog in cold water, turn the heat on very low and let him acclimate slowly to his death…… This is what we have been watching the Republicans do for thirty years…… ‘We have to reach out across the aisle and negotiate,’ they scream. And every time they did we lost just a bit more of our freedoms and sovereignty for every trade-off……

            Finally, they placed Obama in there, thanks to the help of McCain and Mittens……Hillary was chosen to drive the final nail in the coffin.

            Thank God that Donald Trump stepped in there or we would be toast right now…..We still will be toast if we do not get rid of these Fabians which most call RINOs…..

Does everybody realize that congress has made no effort to remove the radical judges who blocked President Trump’s Constitutional powers? OBammy judges challenged his national security blockade of travelers from hostile countries. They also challenged his presidential pardon of rail-roaded Sheriff Arpaio.

        Our republiCON “majority” won’t pass MAGA legislation like wall funding, repeal of Obamacare, tax reform or immigration restrictions. They won’t prosecute obvious criminals and traitors. They also voted UNANIMOUSLY to block Trump’s desperately-needed recess appointments during their August vacation. Had just one of them defected from the bunch, he could have appointed his own people to replace the Obama holdovers in DOJ and other departments.

      Because of the massive range of options for action, the scope of both known and unseen interdependencies, and the combination of rational and irrational players with enormous power and influence across political, military and economic environments, game theory in geopolitics is a fool’s errand in all but completely-controlled and necessarily small-scale environments.

He hasn’t abandoned the libertarian side of of liberalism as the modern Left has, which now demands totalitarian implementation of tolerance. This is why he can be both insufferable and clear-sighted from one sentence to another, and why he’s been generally more fair to the President when it comes to nonsense such as “Russia hacking.” He strikes me as one of the few liberals who still actually believes the “I disagree with what you say” mantra.

    No one gets Trump (except his followers, of course) because none of these people — sad to say —
    understand the classic American fusion of capitalism and patriotism. I don’t mean capitalism in the sense of “making money” but of the whole structure of capitalism as an economic and human enterprise which is all bound up in the America experience. If they do understand capitalism somewhat, they are not patriots (like all the PC globalist tech people, etc.) or else they’re just one-dimensional, bottom-line tools either caught up in the rent-seeking cronyism of the CoC or the pandering social PC machinery. Think of Paul Ryan and the people of his ilk — Trump is like a Martian to them. All they know about him is that he threatens them. Dershowitz can’t get it because he’s from the legal/academic world — no experience with someone like Trump.

    Pres Trump does not play the game according to established paradigms. But what is interesting is that Trump doesn’t attack the paradigms directly. He channels attention in a certain direction, and in an attempt to prove him wrong on something his adversaries lay out the facts that prove him right. Rather than smash the paradigms, Trump forces the paradigms to smash themselves against him.

    We’ve seen this before. Applied in the international arena, what did Reagan do? He didn’t start a war with the Soviet Union. He simply called out the Soviets as an evil empire, then ramped up American domestic arms production, thereby starting an arms race the Soviets had absolutely no chance of even keeping up with, let alone winning. The result was the destruction of the illegitimate Leninist communist regime in Russia. Hooboy!! Talk about regime change! THAT’s the way you do it. Money for nothin’ and chicks for free.

    Now consider China, the last major Marxist regime on the planet. Different facts, but a similar approach, with the same end game. I’ve told this story before, but I’ll tell it again.

    There was a retailer that had a vicious reputation. It would enter into supply agreements to purchase all the product a manufacturer could produce. The owner of the factory would borrow to expand, add second and third shifts, and thought he was in pig heaven. Until the retailer made him the offer he couldn’t refuse. The retailer would cut him off, leaving him with three shifts of payroll and nowhere to sell his product, or he could sell out to the retailer at the retailer’s price and terms. The retailer owned him. The retailer did this over and over again. They all sold.

    The point of the story is, if you are the main customer for a product, you own the producer. As to China, America is far and away the single largest customer for the Chinese communists’ cheap crap. No other single country even comes close. If we cut China off, their economy collapses. America owns China. The Chinese communists have already lost, and they don’t even know it yet. And even if they read this post, they will still not get it. They are by their nature incapable of acknowledging it or changing their behavior to avoid their demise.

    This isn’t about nukes or markets or American manufacturing jobs. It is about ending the illegitimate Chinese communist regime. And when Beijing falls, Kim falls.

    Oh, there’s a storm coming alright. It is an internal Chinese typhoon, and it will wash away the illegitimate Chinese communist regime just as the Russians overthrew the Soviet Leninists. And America will not fire a single shot.

    Expand federal powers ?

    No thank you. Prior administrations used that concept = never let a crisis go to waste. It isn’t what I voted for.

    This has always been an Economic War for PDJT, but he needs to back it with the POSSIBILITY of military power…which is unlikely to be used except in small doses and quick hits.

    Hats off as always to you and Richard Fernandez at PJ, about the only journalists in the world not swallowing and spitting out a funnel of venom, idiocy and bullsh..t

    Didn’t you love how Mrs Sanders hollowed out Jim Acosta’s profoundly presented “madman theory” of Trump as the very shallow matter it is-dont telegraph your punches? No, Jim, it isn’t a big deal. Often five year olds dont tell people they are going to hit them.

    Children have such wisdom…but only when it suite the narrative..otherwise we can denegrate Trump`s “childish” behaviour.

    Anyway, as this article suggests, Trump backs enemies into a corner and has them expose their positions. He does so using the awesome economic and military power of the U.S.A (I am not an american btw) and fights the global media and education sytem and state department,

    Obama’s doctirne was to be an ugly American and enforce your cultural views using the State Department’s global embassy system. Because I once heard that the term “ugly American” originally referred to the pushing of sub/cultural views onto a nation rather than attempting to create Pax-Americana.

    Trump is attempting to reduce American cultural pushing within a pax-americana and let nations be themselves while largely exercising economic sovereignty.

    Unless you are a pervert or have been utterly fooled by perverts that is not such a bad thing, no?
