Deep State – Former Trump Senior State Dept. Official Tells Beijing to Wait Until Trump is Removed…

A clear example of the Administrative State’s seditious alignment with global financial interests and DC indulgences.  This is the deep state at its deepest and most statist.

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, tells her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

(BEIJING) […] “I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this skeptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber. (read more)

There was a prescient article written in Politico when Thornton announced her exit from the State Department.

POLITICO […] – Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson pushed for Thornton to lead the state’s East Asia bureau during his tenure, but then-White House chief strategist Steve Bannon tried to block her advancement. Bannon claimed she was too soft on China, but her nomination moved forward after he was ousted from the White House. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) also said he did not want her to be confirmed. Thornton did receive a confirmation hearing, but never a vote.  –link

This type of undermining of the president by a well known top diplomat is likely why the Chinese politburo rebuked the deal put together by USTR Robert Lighthizer and Chinese Vice-Primier Liu He.

Obviously President Trump’s opposition is confident they can remove him from office; and giving advice to the Chinese who are making long-term strategic decisions with that confidence in mind.

Again, just another example of the scale and scope of the challenges faced by President Trump as he attempts to negotiate strength for the U.S. economy, and is undermined by bureaucrats who make more personal wealth selling out our nation to foreign  governments.

There are trillions at stake; and former bureaucrats like Ms. Susan Thornton use their former positions to make millions at the trough even if that means advocating for the interests of a communist government.

Disappointing would be an understatement.

Those who have sold out our nation despise President Trump.

            What I hope you men is that PDJT’s real strategic purpose is NOT to reach a “deal” with the chinese. Instead, the goal is to significantly decrease trade with the chinese, and increase it with lower-cost countries in SE Asia such as the Vietnamese who historically, fiercely want to remain separate from the chinese. The deck is too-stacked against us in china (US companies can’t even own manufacturers in china, and must give manufacturing details to majority-owned chinese and chinese-militazry-owned companies). Vietnam has almost 100 million population, which is low-cost, industrious and high-IQ. THe SKoreans and even the chinese are moving manufacture to lower-cost Vietnam. Part of this strategic goal is to also loosten the chinese grip on NKorea by offering business and trade to make it as prosperous as SKorea. Hard sell, but worth the try – the Koreans have historically resented chinese dominance. Cambodia has lost its “upper class” due to pol pot, so is less useful for trade, but sri lanka and india are able to take up the slack as PDJT Takes us out of financing china against us.

                Why would PDJT (or anyone in the USA) actually want to reach “deal” for more debilitating trade with a giant country that wants to harm us?
                PDJT can’t just ban trade “opened up” by nixon, on which our retail and tech economy now depends. But he is a strategic thinker and planner. The end goal is to surround china with countries which are economically prosperous, do not want to be controlled by china, and want the sea lanes and trade to remain open. China’s goal (belt & Road enabled) is to make all of SE Asia and the old silk road countries completely dependent on china. And make us dependent on china for technology and manufacture. Indonesia and Maylasia are majority muslim, which is problematic for both us and china, so the countries I think we will see increased trade with instead of economically strengthening the chinese against us, include vietnam, sri lanka, N and S korea, india,Tiawan, tiny Singapore, japan, Philipines, (australia)…

                “NO deal because the chinese are not reciprocally fair” and moving our trade to countries which historically have not wanted to be dominated by china, is a strategic move.

      Also if we were so ignorant DJT would never, ever have beaten Hilary out in the general election.

      No one here at the treehouse has forgotten how hard we worked to help Pres Trump win both of those elections.

      It was not easy, but we did it.

      And now we are in a huge battle to turn things around.

    Ha! That’s the very same thing I said right here on The Treehouse not long after the Trump entered the race. We knew he was destined to win. I said something to the effect of “if these guys were smart, they’d just stop what they are doing now and for Trump’s time to pass.” I did this realizing Trump was Reagan 2.0. Of course at the time, the Republican voters were very split and couldn’t yet even admit that Trump was emulating Reagan’s campaign and using his own words and style. And I saw who Trump was targeting. So I rhetorically said they should just treat him like a bull dog — let him finish and secure what you can while taking your losses.

    And here we are, this POS person actually recommending this.

    But you know, before Trump’s election, I have been also been saying we need to focus more on congressional seats to ensure Trump gets the legislative support he needs. And I’ve also been saying we need to look to who can possibly carry on where Trump leaves off. We can’t have another “George Bush” VP-to-presidency. George Bush was awful and absolutely took us in the wrong direction.

    I don’t expect much from Pence but I do not see him as a strong, independent person. He’s the same old “go along to get along” guy and that “high school sports announcer” speaking style couldn’t possibly sound more fake. (I sort of hate him really. Could you tell?) He never speaks from the heart and is perpetually controlled and guarded. He’s an anti-risk-taker. They never “fail” but they never take risks and so they never really succeed either. And what I hate most is that he NEVER supports Trump when he’s being attacked. “Too risky?” That’s my take on Pence.

    And I say it again. We need to look at who can possibly fill Trump’s yuuuuge shoes. Gotta be every bit as fearless and smart. (Please, no Ivanka. She’s far too socialist. No Jared… at least not until we actually get to know what he’s really about.)

    My eyes have been on the horizon since Trump entered the race. It’s going to take a long time to rebuild the culture of this country but we’ve GOT to take out the trash first.

    Trump has all the globalists in a state of high dudgeon. He’s rather pointedly not a member of their club and is therefore seen by them as a potent danger to their previously hidden agendas. These are the people who see the continued destruction of the American middle-class via
    “deindustrialization” as a necessary component in their efforts to create a worldwide marketplace over which they have control. The freedom and liberty of everyday Americans is in the way of that goal. Their great fear, something that’s being borne out daily it seems, is that Trump has a deeper understanding of their true intends and purposes than they ever could have imagined. The fact that he is the president is simply terrifying for them because, in Trump, they belatedly see someone who has the ability to destroy everything they’ve worked for. ***GO TRUMP!!!***.

      It doesn’t really matter what she said. She isn’t in the employ of the US government and is a USA citizen with Free Speech. All the snow flakes freaking out because they don’t like what she said. She did not give up secrets, but gave them advise, which is within her rights. People need to reverse the circumstances and see if they feel the same way. What is an ex-trump officials tells Israel to wait 4 years till biden is not president and we will work with them again. So what? People are making way too much hate out of this nothing burger.

    This is a vital lesson for us all to understand, we have been sold out by our government “Lock, Stock & Barrel” So that a chosen few can become insanely wealthy while the USA dies on the alter of the NWO, you and I. The swamp needs to spring a massive leak and soon or after 2024 we’ll be back to the lying criminal uni-party stooges to finish the USA off.

    Stay alert free America these weasels are skulking around waiting to finish us off. I say them first!

            Don’t worry , Mark, This is perhaps the MOST forgiving-of-errors site you’ll ever find. Relax and enjoy, because this really is The Last Refuge, for most of us. Maybe ALL of us, for all I know.

  41. These people have ZERO fear or caution. It’s as if they already know they’ll never be punished.

    Hmmm….I wonder why that is?

    “You did not have a President Trump before. Usually when we go into a negotiation, we know our president wants us to get the deal done eventually. But here we have a situation that we do not really know what the guy wants.”

    How could she say that in public, even if she believes it? Behavior of these people is galling.

    Here is another way to look at this. Just suppose President Trump’s objective was just to impose tarrifs on all of China’s exports to the US. Negotiating with China was always fraught with the difficulty of how to enforce an agreement. Lets assume the default condition was tarrifs which eliminates the enforcement issue.

    Having China back out of negotiating is just part of the process and was expected.

    Under current conditions it is politically easy for President Trump to apply additional tarrifs.

    So maybe she was just serving her country!

    Susan Thornton – a former career foreign service officer – was singled out first by Steve Bannon, and then by Senator Marco Rubio, as too soft on China, and it sank her nomination to be the state department’s top Asia official ”

    “(May 15, 2018)During the confirmation hearing and in written answers, the current nominee obfuscated or evaded when answering important questions about her troubling record of undermining America’s allies like Taiwan, failing to stand up to China’s efforts to impose its authoritarian will beyond its borders, including in the United States, downplaying human rights abuses in China, and favoring smooth relations with Beijing over ‎a bilateral relationship grounded in reciprocity and reality,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. told the Free Beacon.

    Why do they hate our President?

    Imagine, that for most of your life, if not all of it, there was a bank that had “Open Doors” only for you….and some others…..

    You could go there at any time and get money……Sometimes a lot…sometimes a little less. More and more people,
    Corporations, Media, people from all over the world, other countries, would come to this bank…..”the doors were always open”……to get their money.

    Just come in and get what you want…

    You bought your house or houses from this money, sent your children to college, Went on fabulous vacations, and even if or when you lost all of your money…you just got more from the “Open Door” bank.

    Then one day one person came along, closed and locked the bank doors.

    Suddenly your life was over in chaos.
    No more free money. What could you do?
    For all your life you did no actual work. Your father, and his father, did no actual work.
    You married to someone who had access to the bank …they never worked…

    But now…. our President….President Trump stopped the free money give away that “We the People” were paying for

    All their plans…..all their schemes…..all they have in life….is going down the drain because of one man

    That’s why they hate him……..Trillions are at stake.

    Pray every minute for our President…..

      FYI — Woman have been in the Boy Scouts since 1988 before Tillerson was head. Youth girls have been in Explorer/Venture for a long while.

      Youth girls just were admitted into the BSA… after Tillerson left BSA.

      Gays? Tillerson was around for that.
