Former CIA Analysts Warns Trump Could Cause U.S. Collapse

The Washington Post is reporting that several current and former U.S. intelligence officials are expressing alarm over President Trump’s awkward attempts to project power over mass protesters. It resembles clashes between authorities and citizens in autocratic states before they collapsed.

 

To watch the stock market soar back over 26,000 this morning, you would think the United States has recovered from the coronavirus pandemic, and it’s 40 to 50 million estimated unemployment problem had been solved. In fact, the opposite is true. We now have seen hundreds of thousands of protestors taking to the streets to confront systemic racism by police and our government.

The Washington Post interview of several former and current CIA analysts who monitor societal collapse abroad are saying they recognize some disturbing parallels between governments that have and are unraveling around the world and President Donald Trump’s strategy of confronting the protests with a militarized show of force…

 Gail Helt, a former CIA analyst who monitored China and Southeast Asia, said…

 “I’ve seen this kind of violence; this is what autocrats do. This is what happens in countries before a collapse. It really does unnerve me.”

Other CIA analysts and national security officials interviewed by the Washington Post are very concerned over President Trump’s Bible stunt in front of the St. John’s Episcopal Church.  Trump’s poorly conceived photo session followed the U.S. Park Police and National Guard troops firing tear gas, concussion bombs, and rubber bullets and using a police Calvary to break up peaceful demonstrators on Monday evening.  This was done on the orders from Attorney General William Barr.

Marc Polymeropoulos, who ran CIA operations in Europe and Asia, was quoted by the Washington Post as saying…

“It reminded me of what I reported on for years in the third world…Saddam, Bashar, Qaddafi — they all did this.”

Former intelligence officials said they would flag the administration’s militaristic response to the protests as a sign of societal decay if they were writing an analysis of another country.

Brett McGurk, a former envoy to the Middle East who spent two years in the Trump administration, said…

“It makes it much more difficult for us to distinguish ourselves from other countries we are trying to contest…The imagery of a head of state in a call with other governing officials saying, ‘Dominate the streets, dominate the battlespace’ — these are iconic images that will define America for some time.”

All of this social unrest combined with the worst pandemic in over 100 years and one of the worst economic collapses in U.S. history, and yet the Dow Jones seems to be on pace to recover to its historic highs. Nothing seems to stop the climbing equity prices, not even the risk of the trade war with China.  The trade war is getting much worse thanks to a Federal Reserve that has managed to artificially prevent a financial apocalypse by pumping trillions of dollars into the financial markets to avoid a washout.
