Not really answering as "me", but many New York City residents would say this:
I have been a New York and NY City resident for 40 [or how many ever] years so
I know Trump, and his surrogates like Giuliana, very well (Giuliana was
entirely a self-promoter as Mayor and thereafter-- wanted to get rich and
famous, and did-- and now wants to be Secretary of State-- more fame and
Thank goodness New Yorkers got someone, for a time, like Bloomberg who,
although a billionaire too, actually cared about all aspects of the city and
not just his own fame and fortune. Too bad Trump is not a Bloomberg (who
himself called Trump a con-man) because we DID need an outsider. But Trump is
not THAT outsider. Trump himself said of his win, simply "I know how to size
up a market".
Those same New Yorkers might also say: I'm not big fan of Bloomberg but at
least, as a billionaire himself, he really took some middle, centrist, grounds
and points of view and policy. So, those New Yorkers would not agree with
these, what they would see as "projections from afar" on who Trump and his
surrogates actually are or what they stand for. To them, it's likely far
simpler--- just part of the backlash (happening all over the world) as upper
classes or formerly ruling races cannot adjust to a world going global and
multicultural (albeit with all kinds of problems and very real downsides)....
So they go back to simplistic nationalism and a nostalgia for "a world that
was" back then they were in charge, etc. and everything seemed so good (at
least for them). It's a pendulum swing and that same pendulum will likely keep
swinging back and forth. One analyst today (actually the founder of Spiral
Dynamics) said, and perhaps rightly, "Obama came too soon".
Just another point of view from some New Yorkers....

your agreement to delete my name from this document, to stand aside from
further discussion of it.

Dear Robert, David, their allies and adherents,
Your important in our discussion of Trump letter is structured in four
Comparison of Trump and Clinton positions as "extremely violent"
Forecast/prediction: Trump will create “enormous violence" with the
Position Trump about the climate and environment you cannot identify.
Your appeal to the American people as a decisive argument.
Let me look at your parts by the critical scientific and philosophical
eye. I beg your pardon me for the impartial criticism because the
truth, in contrast with the sweet lies, is bitter. My credo - from
Aristotle: "Plato is my friend, but truth is more expensive."
1. Your thesis: Both (Trump and Clinton) are the villains, "extremely
violent people." My antithesis. For Clinton the "lengthy record" of
her real atrocities: wars, genocide and crimes against humanity is. It
is recorded by the history of the last 16 years. For Trump the like,
real "lengthy record" does not exist - no one knows. Therefore, your
accusation of Trump is slander. Please, write to us "lengthy record"
of the facts, but not fakes, which really proves that Trump is
"extremely violent man" Otherwise, your accusations Trump will be
slander, and it is not good to lie on the person. It's immoral and not
a Christian. We must defend the dignity of every innocent human being
that I do.
2. Your forecast: Trump’s "enormous violence will be done." My
antithesis: this is a slander and fake of mainstream media, which is
proved by your recommended article. I met it and was convinced in the
truth: "Tell me what you read and I'll tell you who you are." If we
read the lies and fakes in our consciousness can be nothing but lies
and fakes only. This is the absolute truth, as the philosophers say,
"Similia similibus". My anatomy of the fake article is briefly as
You write: «this article will give you a taste» This article gave me a
complete sample of 100% lies, fakes and fantasies of mainstream media
because I did not find in it any fact! Only the subjective opinions
porridge! I similar verbal garbage principally not read! I read it
just for you to understand what you are reading, what intellectual
poison you feed your thinking. Now I understand a lot at you (and
Western peacemakers and scientists). I prefer the facts and ignore the
lies and fakes. You prefer the lies and fakes and ignore the facts and
documents. You ignored the Trump document (fact) - his foreign policy
program (you have not read it) but you savor and advertise verbal
garbage of opinions. What is it?
The article is devoted to the struggle for the expansion of the
Pentagon's budget in the Republican Party with the retelling of dozens
of experts from it. This struggle goes under the sauce, which is made
of lies, fakes, imaginary threats, subjective desires, unfounded
assumptions and similar intellectual garbage united by one common
desire to achieve the maximum increase in the military budget to feed
it. In this article, we read: "One expert said,… another expert
mentioned,… third suggests,… a fourth arguably, the fifth – likely,
the sixth – rather, the seventh – recommend, the eighth - Trump said
little, ninth – perhaps, ten - Trump may also consider” and so on-all
the three pages! And what are the "experts and advisers"? All of them
are the Republican hawks, with the top of which Trump is known, does
not get along, but is forced to flirt, like the Pentagon, for obvious
reasons. All of them are «legislators and experts, several of whom
have consulted with President-elect Donald Trump's advisers», i.e.
some small fry to the other small fry in Trump's environment but not
of self-Trump! But all the militaristic devils hang on him!!! All of
this is not a "test" and the pitiful emptiness and the surface on
which it is known that floats. The sane person cannot and should not
accept the rat race of fakes at its face value.
The author is a veteran of the security, the typical American
journalist of mainstream media, who lead readers to the nose,
brainwash, zombie, manipulate and holds for fools. He writes about his
sources of information thoughtfully: some do not hide their names,
“other aides and experts, who requested anonymity and who may have a
role in - or influence on - the next administration”! When sources is
anonymous from their name you can write any fictions do not hesitate!
And no one will catch a cheater's hand! Truth scientists cannot be in
one campaign with counterfeiters, cannot read and pay attention to
this dirty rat race of militarists. And if they are at the same table
in this campaign, it is not scientists but chefs of lies and fakes,
"When War becomes Peace, When the Lie becomes the Truth" by the
brilliant remark of Michel Chossudovsky. In general, it is necessary
to recognize the fair about the public, eating this "food”:
“Apparently, H.L. Mencken was correct, the vast majority of Americans
are morons.” On words of Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
This is guesswork, or as they say in Russia - grandmother by forks on
the water wrote. - They are not worth an empty eggshell for scientific
thinking. They only make sense for the zombie consciousness. This is
pure lies and fabrications by 100%. Serious scientific thinking cannot
use these sources of information. It is self-deception. This is a
subjective mess in the head brainwashed, deprived of their own
objective / scientific grounds. Western, especially American
mainstream media are by 100% false and fake. Trump exactly qualified
their journalists as "terrible people" and "a pack of liars and
cheaters." Add to this there is nothing! This is a full sunset of
Trump has no defense program, which cannot make up his easy campaign
remarks and a lot of speculations of different experts and advisers
around him. Why do you attach importance to this verbal garbage and
ignore its fundamental foreign policy program on April 27? Why do not
you even read it (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=685)?
This speech will give you a taste! Why do not you see the difference
between them? Or you do not want to see it? Whether or not you are
capable of, as zombified media? What's right from it? A lot of debris
in the article required long proceedings there. Excuse me. You dragged
me into this thankless job.
3. Your thesis about climate and ecology of Trump. My antithesis. You
were not able to determine his position on this issue. Apart from a
few rambling opinions, which can change tenfold, he does not have a
balanced environmental program. Therefore, all that was attributed to
him here - that is too fakes.
4. Your appeal to the American people about the second American
revolution, which should eliminate the "two evil - Trump and Clinton"
by an alternative of nonviolence in the spirit of Gandhi / Burrowes.
This is your clincher. My antithesis. You're right that Trump began
November 8, 2016 a second American revolution, which will put an end
to US militarism and empire. But you did not see that its trigger,
source and initiator was and could become only Trump and no one else
with his historic program of peace (which you, as the vast majority do
not read), which is the most complete but contradictory and
inconsistent (that is natural for the historical origin) expresses
your alternative of nonviolence. I analyzed in detail this program of
Trump in our article: «Trump: Peacemaking Revolution of the US
(http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=685). Did you read it?
Of course, two ways are opened before Trump: a) to be the greatest
national hero, a global leader of peacebuilding and revolutionary,
Fidel Castro similarly or b) go down to the level of extreme
militarist and the Nazi. Time will tell what he and his destiny will
choose. But his program of peace clearly and unambiguously shows today
his preference. We wait and see what happens.
With the "Global Elite Insanity," I completely agree with you. It dies
from recklessness, lack of scientific knowledge of harmony in its deep
societal SPHERONS structure. Its only alternative can be a new,
harmonious and nonviolent elite armed by Global Peace Science (GPS),
who is based on it and will create a non-violent harmonious, spheral
democracy (democracy of SPHERONS) instead of violent "totalitarian
democracy" of 1%.
The prosperity of wars, violence and "totalitarian democracy" (William
Engdahl) is provided with military science, working on the invention
of modern weapons as the principal source of enrichment of 1%. The
prosperity of peace, nonviolence and the true (harmonious) democracy
is possible only on the GPS basis. This is their main resource and the
source. And as long as we, the peacemakers do not understand this,
until we were, we are and will be powerless in the face of war and
violence, until peace and non-violence will remain ghosts, and
peacemakers will remain "inverted militarists" (similar to "inverted
totalitarianism" Sheldon Wolin) that nourish and mask militarism by
their impotence. Sorry for the long response - it happened.
Best harmony wishes,
OK, I will exclude you from the article.
But I (and others) do not understand your “clearly divergent” – what is
We both are the opponents of violence, war and militarism. We
published in our Global Peace Science (GPS) your 3 or 4 wonderful
articles about your nonviolence. GPS includes your nonviolence as the
theory of global peace from social harmony, from its deep societal
structure of SPHERONS. This science and all its theories work to and
for nonviolence giving it fundamental scientific pillar and
strengthening it in spiritual, scientific and political possibilities
Maybe you are against them? Against spiritual, scientific and
political strengthening nonviolence??? But I cannot believe in it.
Then I do not understand what prevents you to recognize and accept the
scientific rationale and strengthening of nonviolence in GPS and
develop it further in the name of victory of nonviolence? To take it
out of the deadlock and the weakness, in which it is now and in it
nonviolence was drove by the endless wars and militarism. Nonviolence
as peace can defeat violence and war only through science, only on the
GPS basis and nothing else. All the rest is fancy, impotence and
eternal defeat and humiliation of nonviolence and peace.
Are you agree with me? Please, let us know your position here. I will
be happy to publish it on your page of our website. Thank you.
Best wishes for peace from harmony via science (GPS), education,
culture and SPHERONS' democracy,
Dr Leo Semashko

to a joint fundamental article: “Trump: Peacemaking Revolution of the
US Aggressive Geopolitics”(In attachment, 16 pages).
Scientific analysis of the unprecedented peaceful program of Trump’s
foreign policy with his search for a "new vision, new minds, new
approaches and new practical ideas" in "harmony" has defined the motto
of this program in our interpretation: "Make America Great Again in
Global Peace from Harmony through SPHERONS Science", which is
http://peacefromharmony.org/#top and I invite you to share it along
with the article.
Why I invite you? We are very different people but we have four common
qualities that unite us and allow us to collaborate in a joint article
of exceptional importance. Incorporating us qualities are:
1. We are the peacemakers / anti-militarists.
2. We welcome the victory of Trump peacefulness over Hillary
3. We are the Global Peace Science coauthors and/or positive estimate
it as common scientific platform for Trump peaceful geopolitics:
4. We believe it is necessary to actively support the Trump
geopolitics of peace, participate in it and to help it in its
development and distribution for all countries. This geopolitics
transforms America of global aggressor to global leader in
peacebuilding, which is a revolution of modern history and that we
have to recognize as a given.
If I am not mistaken in definition of uniting our aspirations, then I
am happy to invite you to coauthorship in scientific article
disclosing an unprecedented revolution of Trump peacemaking thinking.
See attachment. It is also published here:
The article subject is program of peacefulness and peacemaking Trump
proposed them to the US foreign policy for the next 4 years, which is
ignored, silenced or radically distorted in the mainstream media. Our
duty I see in the joint scientific analysis, the assessment and the
maximum identification of all its advantages and benefits as
revolution of the US geopolitics. If we are peacemakers /
anti-militarists, we cannot pass and ignore follow media the
revolutionary content and value of this program required the peoples
of the planet.
Trump is the first American president who puts forward the agenda of
peacemaking. We, as responsible journalists and scholars are obliged
to support and every effort to promote peacebuilding strategy Trump.
If you agree with this motivation of our common article, I invite you
to edit this article: reduce, add or change the text and send it to me
in two days: November 28-29 that I formed its final on November 30-31.
It will be published, first of all, by the site "Peace from Harmony»
(http://peacefromharmony.org), which has the number of visits each day
ranges from 5 to 10 thousand. It will be also proposed to publish on
friendly sites (Global Research, TMS Digest) and other available to
each of us. If one of you does not want or cannot participate in this
article, please let us know it. Your silence will be a sign of your
refusal. If the article will find, ultimately, 50 or 30% authors - it
will be great!
Trump announced the opening admission of 4 thousand employees in
accordance with his intention: " I will also look for talented experts
with new approaches, and practical ideas." We can and should help him
in his passionary quest for peace. Our innovative and constructive
article will give us the moral right to offer our services to his team
as either individual experts or "International Peace-building
Institute Trump" (IPIT), under the direction of, for example, Mairead
Maguire or Michel Chossudovsky, or anyone who is ready to lead it.
This is a great prospect for development and application of our
peacemaking ideas, theories and aspirations in a single complex of
Global Peace Science. We must counter to the globalization of war the
peacebuilding globalization to perform a brilliant testament of Martin
Luther King: "We must shift the arms race into a peace race." Trump
began this shift. We have to help him in this. He needs our help.
Now I pray to God about one thing: that cruel America did not kill
Trump as it killed its best citizens: John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther
King and others. Trump gave humanity the first real hope for global
peace. We believe in divine favor and mercy.
