Letter: Relationship with Britain

To the Editor:

In July, the Northwest Herald ran a Bloomberg editorial, “Trump has treated the British shamefully.” Nowhere in the editorial was it written that former British ambassador to the U.S., Kim Darroch, had written openly about setting up a system where everyone who speaks to Donald Trump is cultivated to give only the British view.

He boasted, “It’s important to ‘flood the zone’: You want as many as possible of those who Trump consults to give him the same answer. So we need to be creative in using all the channels available to use through our relationships with his Cabinet, the White House staff and our contacts among his outside friends.”

Part of the Integrity Initiative that was spawned by British intelligence is that all sources in government, media and academia were to be coordinated in all communication and responses to the British view. 

The British view of Trump is that he’s so dangerous to the imploding transatlantic world order that he might act according to his intentions and stop U.S. involvement in British-spawned endless wars; restore the Glass-Steagall separation between commercial and investment banking, bankrupting the city of London and its outpost in America, Wall Street; engage in a four powers agreement among the U.S., China, Russia and India, bringing development to the vast underdeveloped parts of the world under a new international financial architecture; and continue to renegotiate bad trade deals.

Each of the above-mentioned intentions have sent the British and their sycophants into hysterics. It’s all the same on local, national and international news. Anyone who doubts that the Integrity Initiative has not been successful has been fooled.  

None of this exonerates Trump from his missteps but gives one pause to understand the lopsided narrative being spoon-fed to the world.

The British never have gotten over losing the American colony, and over the past 75 years, they have used the “special relationship” to use the U.S. as the dumb giant plodding around the world doing Britain’s bidding.
