US foreign policy establishment stunned that Trump or anyone would question their racket of endless US taxpayer funded disasters all over the globe-Lazare, Consortium News, 1/14/17

1/14/17, "The Scheme to Take Down Trump," Consortium News, Daniel Lazare

"U.S. foreign policy has been marked by a high degree of continuity since World War II as Republican and Democratic presidents alike pledged to uphold the imperial agenda. But Trump, as radical in his way as William Jennings Bryan was in 1896 or [third party candidate] Henry A. Wallace in 1948, is bucking the consensus to an unprecedented degree."...

[Ed. note: This is exactly why we elected Trump. None of this is news to us. We no longer agree to be global slaves.]

(continuing): "Even though its policies have led to disaster after disaster, the foreign-policy establishment is aghastConsequently, it is frantically searching for a way to prevent him from carrying his ideas out. The intelligence agencies appear to be running out of time with the inauguration only a few days away. But that doesn’t mean they’re giving up. All it means, rather, is that they’ll go deeper underground. Trump may enter the White House on Jan. 20. But the big question is how long he’ll remain."

"Daniel Lazare is the author of several books including The Frozen Republic: How the Constitution Is Paralyzing Democracy (Harcourt Brace)."


Added: You don't need violence if you have the poisonous US mainstream media:
Henry A. Wallace, FDR's third term VP, in 1944 noted use of media to "poison" American minds:

"The Danger of American Fascism", 1944: 

"Regarding Fascism" 

"The dangerous American fascist is the man who wants to do in the United States in an American way what Hitler did in Germany in a Prussian way. The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power."
