World Affairs Brief


Monday’s FBI raid on former president Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home has shocked and angered the former president and has his supporters up in arms. Everyone is wondering what the agents were searching for. So far the speculation from the mainstream press is typically apologetic for the government. Initially they claimed it was over “15 boxes of presidential material” demanded by the National Archives, but admitted in the same story that Trump had already turned over that material earlier this year. Now a supposed “leak” to the Washington Post says it was “nuclear weapons documents” to reinforce the urgency of this raid. That’s ridiculous since just two months prior the FBI had searched through the very room where they brought out this week’s offending boxes of documents. Monday’s raid appears to be a “fishing expedition” to turn up something on Trump. Warrants require law enforcement to show some kind of proof that the evidence they want is at the location at that time and some kind of surveillance is typically used to back up that request—either a wiretap or informant. I suspect the latter. Sure enough, Newsweek scooped this week that there was, in fact, a mole at Mar-a-lago informing the FBI about documents there and where they are kept. Trump has never be good at keeping Deep State spies out of his staff. It is doubtful that this “confidential source” will be revealed when the DOJ unseals the warrant, as Merrick Garland promised yesterday, but one thing is certain, this raid has Trump supporters and even mainstream Republicans fired up and will curry to Trump’s favor unless something seriously damaging to Trump’s reputation comes from it, or, barring that, a criminal conviction sufficient to disqualify him from running in 2024. There is always a danger when agents invade and search a home that they will plant the evidence they a seeking, and this nuclear weapons document idea being floated may be a hint as to what they intend to foist on Trump in order to convict him of a serious crime.

Strategic Threats

Did you Know?

The Russians are building tremendous new nuclear/biological and chemical weapons systems--all with the assistance of US technology transfers. They are deploying on average, 3 new Topol-M 6th generation ballistic missiles per month. We built our last MX over 10 years ago, and are disarming unilaterally. Further, the Russian are building huge underground nuclear bunkers and weapons production facilities in the Ural Mountains, clearly intended to function during a nuclear war. The US intelligence community (under both Republican and Democratic administrations) knows this and are actively covering for the Russians, so the American people won't become alarmed.

Both Republican and Democratic administrations have been supplying the Chinese with high technology weapons systems for years, knowing that they, in turn, are supplying other enemies (Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, North Korea) as well. Both Russia and China continue to protest against any US anti-ballistic missile system, even though such systems are purely defensive. It doesn't take a genius to understand that ABM systems only threaten someone who intends to launch ballistic missiles someday.

President Clinton directed our military to absorb a nuclear first strike rather than launch on warning (our only true deterrent to a first strike) and to prepare to retaliate afterward. That first strike will take down all command and control, all bombers (since none are on alert), most missiles, and all satellite and submarine communications.

According to the House Armed Services Committee, the following reductions have taken place during the Clinton Administration: Strategic and General Purpose Forces from 1990 to 1997: B-52 Bombers have gone from 220 to 56. B-1 Bombers from 90 to 60; Strategic Defense Interceptor Aircraft from 36 to 0; and Army Divisions (1990 to 1997) have gone from 18 Active down to 10. Reserve divisions have gone from 10 to 8. Army Brigades (1990 to 1997) have declined from 8 Active to 3 and Reserve brigades have gone down from 27 to 18.

Joel Skousen's World Affairs Brief attempts to track the insider moves underlying the major stories you hear each week. The WAB is not a primary news source--but rather, the best source of news analysis. Joel's purpose and strong point is to help you see how world and national events are shaping up in accordance with the secret agendas of men and groups who control government. The World Affairs Brief puts together the probable set of intentions and motives of the power elite by inductively cataloging their specific actions over time.

What will you do about it?

What is the risk to you and your family if there is a major terrorist attack on a U.S. city with chemical or biological weapons? What will you do?

Did you know the US, by policy, will not retaliate on warning of a nuclear attack --effectively removing any deterrent? Are you prepared if the "unthinkable" happens --nuclear war?

Have you considered what you will do if an economic crisis threatens your pensions, investments and other so-called "guaranteed" income?

What about a major earthquake or other natural disaster suddenly upsetting the natural social order for months at a time? Could you get out of harm's way if massive social unrest erupts in the wake of a crisis?

What about your home? Do you have extra tanks of potable water should public water supplies be cut off or contaminated? Would you know how to collect and filter your own water if none was available for a long time?
