I’m starting to flesh out the plot of my novel. See my post below.
I’ve got a great idea for a novel. by hank February 12, 2017 9:12 pm
Let’s recap. We have a new Secretary of State, a very big shot in the oil industry who has negotiated big oil deals with the Russian oligarchy for joint drilling projects in the Arctic and the Gulf of Mexico. This is a man who has been feted and honored by the Kremlin for his friendship with Russia.
Now we have a National Security Council member who has been caught red-handed talking with high Russian officials about lifting sanctions brought against Russia for their aggression against Ukraine.
We also have a former campaign aide who actually worked for the corrupt, pro-Russian Ukrainian President and has traveled and consulted in Russia itself.
We had a candidate, (and now a President) who has spoken favorably about Russia and its leadership, and about future cooperation with them. These remarks have been cautiously reciprocated by the other side.
Then there’s all that talk about the Russians interfering with the US election, on that President’s behalf.
Follow it all up by a campaign from the White House to deprecate and discredit the intelligence establishment for bringing the election intervention issue to the nation’s attention.
By themselves, any of these events could be dismissed as coincidence, stupidity, political slander, rogue actors or acts of treason or self-aggrandizement by individuals. But taken together, they make up an unmistakable pattern, a policy. We obviously don’t have enough information to understand exactly what is happening and why (and we probably never will) but we certainly have enough to put together a testable hypothesis that fits what we know.
The initial instinct is to simply say that the American President hates America and is deliberately doing everything he can to destroy it, knowing his troglodyte followers and plutocratic allies will look the other way rather than admit to themselves they fucked up big time.
But that’s too simplistic. Let me propose a more plausible explanation that still fits the observations we have so far.
I believe the American President (or perhaps one of his Machiavellian advisers) has seen our major rival and potential enemy in the world as China. Actually, I’m not entirely in disagreement with that concept myself! So in order to oppose China, he has decided to form an alliance with another great power, Russia, which shares a vast border with China, has skirmished with it in the past, and which must eventually become a rival with it for world domination. Besides, the Russians are white, they are now proudly capitalist, and they are not an economic rival of the USA. They are also fighting the other emerging threat in the world, Muslim Jihad. Divide and conquer. We’re white capitalists too, we shouldn’t be quarreling with the Russians. After all, isn’t this something like what Nixon and Kissinger were thinking when they opened relations with China–to come up with a foil against the Soviet Union?
Only time will tell if these theories are correct. But if they are, Mr Trump should remember Count Fenric’s advice to Princess Irulan.
