Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

My friend “Jimmy from Brooklyn” says we are going to have three restrooms:

  • Men
  • Women
  • Enter at Your Own Risk

Meanwhile, some elements of the pro-Russian Kissinger wing of the “establishment” are coalescing behind Donald Trump, who is appearing at the National Press Club on Wednesday to give a “foreign policy address.” Kissinger is also a good friend of Hillary Clinton.

So if it’s Trump vs. Hillary, Kissinger has both sides covered. That means our enemies win.

For the background on Kissinger, please read Kissinger’s Record of Failure and Betrayal.

Kissinger built up Russia and China at American expense.
He also engineered our defeat in Vietnam.

The event is sponsored by The National Interest. The magazine is a publication of the Council for the National Interest, whose Board of Directors includes Henry Kissinger as its Honorary Chairman. Other board members include:

  • Leslie Gelb, President Emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
  • David Keene, the Opinion Editor of The Washington Times.
  • General Brent Scowcroft, the United States National Security Advisor under U.S. Presidents Gerald Ford and George H. W. Bush
  • Dimitri Konstantinovich Simes, president of The Center for the National Interest and publisher of the foreign policy journal The National Interest.


Luke Hagberg, the press contact for Wednesday’s event, tells me:

Dear Cliff,

We’re still working on figuring out just how much space we have and what that means for our credentials list, but I’ve sent your information along to the people handling that, and they will be back in touch.  Thanks for reaching out!  Best regards, Luke

I’m still trying to get into the Wednesday Trump event. No guarantees. I asked who was making the final decisions on press attendance, and was told that it was secret.

The New York Times noted:

Donald J. Trump…held a private briefing last summer with Richard N. Haass, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, a spokeswoman for Mr. Haass said…

“I respect Richard Haass, who’s on your show a lot,” Trump said. “And I like him a lot. I have a few people that I really like and respect.”

The paper also reported:

“Kissinger is a friend, and I relied on his counsel when I served as secretary of state,” Mrs. Clinton wrote in The Washington Post, in a positive review of his book “World Order.”

Those who thought that Trump would have nothing to do with the CFR have been proven wrong. Like Kissinger, the CFR has both sides covered.


For America's Survival,

Cliff Kincaid, President
