The instincts of the God-Emperor


The lying news media is full of fake "news" - like there is anything new about the fact that the gaystream media lies its collective ass off constantly and blatantly in front of us - about a new chemical weapons attack by the forces of the eeeeeeeevil Syrian dictator Assad against innocent civilians.

Is there any truth to it?

Well, as far as anyone can tell, yes, someone launched some kind of chemical weapon against civilians in a contested enclave near Damascus.

And that, apparently, is the full extent to which all of the various stories agree.

The Russians have unequivocally stated that this was a false flag operation, and are blaming the CIA and the Israelis for stirring up the pot and attempting to weaken the Assad regime right when ISIS is on the brink of total annihilation.

The gaystream media is screaming for Assad's head, and at least one eight-buck cuck is agitating for the next closest thing to open war between Russia and the West.

But, do a little digging, and the whole story about the attack - and the one that preceded it last year - starts to unravel very quickly:


The problem with the war in Syria is that there are no clear winners, and there is no real sense of "right" versus "wrong".

Yes, those Islamist barbarians who make up and are allied to ISIS need to be turned into bloody red paste. American armed forces have obeyed the commands of the God-Emperor and done precisely that.

However, the conflict over there is not simply between America and ISIS. Multiple players are involved in that particular imbroglio.

Russia is involved due to Vladimir Putin's willingness to engage in alliances that keep the Islamic world divided and fighting amongst themselves. President Putin is more than willing to play one side against the other to preserve and protect Russian interests, which in this case involve keeping Islam in the Russian Federation - about six percent of the country is Muslim, and the majority of those are Sunnis - off balance.

Russia is also involved to check and counterbalance American ambitions in the region. I'm not sufficiently informed as a political analyst to figure out whether they've done a particularly good job or not, but given the way that President Putin routinely made the previous two American Presidents look six different kinds of stupid, I'd say they probably have.

The Kurds are also involved in the fight, because bits of Syria, along with big chunks of Iraq and Iran and parts of northern Turkey, comprise the territory that the Kurds consider to be their ancestral homeland. And they are not too terribly keen on having a bunch of jumped-up ISIS fanatics coming in and taking their land from them.

The Turks are involved because they do not particularly like or trust the Kurds, and they sure as hell do not want a strong Kurdish faction controlling significant parts of Turkey. And the Turks are supposedly America's ally.

Then there is Israel's involvement. Now, Israel's leaders know full well that the security of the Jewish homeland depends entirely upon keeping the Arab and Muslim world as divided and fractious as possible. They can achieve this by pitting Sunni against Shia, Turk against Kurd, and Russian against American.

Syria is, quite simply, one giant fustercluck.

There is no "winning" that war. There is only the possibility of grinding ISIS into the dust and sand - but, inevitably, their lunatic ideology will re-emerge, because as long as the Islamic heresy is permitted to exist and threaten true Christian civilisation, the madness of its most intolerant and bigoted forms will return again, and again, and again.

In this respect, there is one piece of good news: the God-Emperor has finally started listening to his own instincts instead of those of his advisers:

Trump’s advisers, among them Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, were advocating for an ongoing U.S. military presence to provide stability. They aimed to rely on the same playbook they used last year in persuading Trump to keep U.S. troops in Afghanistan indefinitely. They would paint a dire picture of a pullout, of regional chaos benefiting Russia and Iran, and the potential resurgence of the Islamic State group.

But even before they could begin their pitch in that meeting Tuesday, Trump headed them off, saying he wanted to remove U.S. troops immediately. The ensuing heated argument put new distance between the president and his team and left the military with a mandate, if not a formal order, to remove U.S. troops from Syria within six months.

The episode stood in sharp contrast to the earlier meeting on Afghanistan, when Trump went along with his advisers despite his instincts to pull out completely.

More than 10 current and former White House officials and outside advisers spoke to AP on condition of anonymity to describe such internal discussions.

The shift has as much to do with changes in personnel as changes in the president’s attitude. Former White House staff secretary Rob Porter, for one, was viewed as a person Trump could trust to be an honest broker and make sure that all options were being faithfully presented to him.

During the Afghanistan meeting, aides went out of their way to make it appear that they were considering Trump’s perspective with an even hand. But with Syria, aides said, Trump felt he was being steamrolled and lashed out.

Managing a boss who despises being managed is a difficult game. And those who have succeeded have proceeded carefully. Some aides, convinced that Trump puts more stock in what he sees on TV than in his own aides’ advice, regularly phone prominent commentators and news hosts to provide talking points on everything from tax policy to Syria in hopes of influencing Trump. Similar strategies have also been embraced by foreign governments and outside groups trying to sway the president’s thinking.


Now, more than ever, the God-Emperor must listen to his instincts and his gut, before the fit really hits the shan.

President Trump is a deeply flawed and problematic person, to be sure. He has a monstrous ego and his primary skill is in flashy salesmanship and self-promotion; his abilities as a manager are patchy at best.

Nonetheless, President Trump has also demonstrated, repeatedly, the ability to learn from his mistakes. He has clearly shown that his management style basically involves giving his selected appointees as much as he thinks they can handle - and holding them swiftly and brutally accountable if and when they fail to deliver.

President Trump's instincts on trade, on war in Syria, on the ongoing debacles in the Sandbox and the Rockpile, and on border security, are all the correct ones. He wants the American military out of wars that it cannot win, and he wants to avoid antagonising the Russians, who he thinks America can and should attempt to be friendly with.

His actions on a number of these subjects leave much to be desired. Yet, every day it becomes ever more clear just how many of those actions and decisions have been guided by men and women who have no love for America, whose allegiance is to the Deep State bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., and who do not care in the slightest whether more American blood and treasure is spilled in the sands of the Middle East for naught to show for it.

This is why America needs the God-Emperor, and this is why the God-Emperor must listen to his own deep-rooted instincts. He is not always right, and when he is wrong his base tells him so in no uncertain terms.

But now, President Trump must heed his instinct to get the hell out of Syria. He must resist the urge to strike back at Syria and Russia and Iran (which he probably will fail to do, given the way things are going right now). And he must do whatever he can to combat this bizarre ongoing narrative in the Western world about how THE RUSSIANS!!! are behind everything from an unconfirmed and unverified use of a supposedly Russian-produced nerve agent, to the election of the God-Emperor himself (when in reality all of the ties to Russia lead straight back to the Hilldebeast).

It is going to get to the point where Donald Trump and the Russians will be automatically blamed when any prominent liberal gets so much as a parking ticket.

President Trump's instincts served him well during the campaign. He must listen to them again now if he is to take on and destroy the Deep State - for that same amorphous and terrible entity is doing its damnedest to destroy him.

  1. It's really funny to see how the left was totally in bed with the Soviets, that the USSR could do no wrong despite its murderous Marxist regime.... And now, the left is totally against THE RUSSIANS!!! The RUSSIANS!! are the enemy, not to be trusted, they've done everything wrong in the whole world, Trump is Putin's puppet, etc. etc. etc. ad nauseam ad infinitum. First, the Russians are our friends, until about 2004. Now, the Russians are our mortal enemies, according to our leftist friends.

    Similar to the left's convulsions and whipsawing about James Comey. When Comey called off the Hillary investigation in the summer of 2016, he was hailed as a pragmatic leader. When he reopened it in October 2016, he was a villain and an interloper who cost Hillary the election. When Trump fired Comey, he was suddenly transformed and rehabilitated into a crusader for Truth, Justice, and the American Way, a wronged victim who valiantly stood forth and refused to be crushed under the Trumpening.

    Ridiculous.

    1. All true and correct, but then consistency has never been a strong point of the liberal and especially of the SJW mindset.

      With respect to Russia - LTC Kratman's comment about how the US turned Russia from an ally into a very dangerous enemy from my last post on the subject serves as a stark warning to us, and to Donald Trump as well, about the very real dangers of pursuing expedient short-term ends at the expense of long-term strategic realities.

      The USA has made a colossal mess of the Middle East over the last 15 years, and now the very liberals and neoconservatives behind that debacle are lining up to urge President Trump to bomb Assad again. It is pure madness, and the God-Emperor should (but sadly will not) resist that urge with all of his might.

  2. @ Didact:

    "The USA has made a colossal mess of the Middle East over the last 15 years,"

    indeed. And has done so simply by not asking the questions:

    "What are the USA's strategic/tactical interests long and short term? How does the suggested course of action serve American interests in the long and short term? Why should the USA care about [insert situation here]?"
