Chomsky is unhinged. Trump may have wound up with a hotel in Moscow so what's all the fuss about?
No concern for his support of white nationalism? No concern for hate speech? Falling in love with authoritarian regimes? America's diminished prestige, it's loss of soft power, and bumbling around the world militarily? The dismantling of NATO?
Pulling America out of the Paris Climate Accord?
Such utter moronic nonsense that passes for political thought under the guise of such concern for all the ways the Democratic Party is screwing up.
Trump is a clear, present and future threat to the Republic and to mankind. Any talk that discourages Democrats and anyone inclined to vote out this narcissist is dangerous.

It's not complicated. The modern democrat party has become extremist in ideology. They have abandoned any respect for individual liberty and the protections of our Constitution by appealing to the most base of human instincts, that is perpetual mediocrity assured by entitlements. They are all about giving out fish as opposed to teaching anyone how to fish for themselves. An objective journalistic media would expose this.

Interesting stuff, but I'm not sure I'm seeing an argument here, it feels more like a series of locally-connected observations, leading up to essentially embedding the original question in his answer - at around 6:15 - claiming that Trump's role is essentially to keep the voting base frothing at the mouth is essentially asserting that there is a "Trump phenomenon", which is what he was asked to explain from the start. I do agree with some of his observations, for example that Trump is not basically in charge of policy, and I think his story about the right using social policy as a bait for their base was well told by Thomas Frank back during the Bush years (see "The Trouble With Kansas").

As usual, I find that I part ways with Chomsky on his insistence that there are particular blocs in American and world politics which are monolithic in opinion and basically omnipotent in their domain - unless it's important for his argument that they not be. So we have "elites" which prevent the certain candidates from making it through the primaries, until they suddenly can't, and we have a democratic party that "abandoned the working class". Except that in the 1990s, most of the policies that he refers to as the Democrats "moving to the right" are essentially Bill Clinton trying to appeal to the working class - thinking in particular of the crime bill that everyone (correctly) hates now, and the welfare "reform" bill.

So while I appreciate Chomsky's ability to make an appealing story that riles up the true believers, I'm not sure there's even a premise here to be convinced of. In other words, I'm not sure he's even wrong, and he's certainly not consistent, even in this ten-minute spiel.

He's saying Russian interference was SLIGHT? Doesn't he look disingenuous in retrospect after the mea culpa from Facebook and Twitter? How did Netanyahu's speech before Congress about a suicidal and idiotic Iran deal to hand them tens of millions of dollars to infiltrate Syria and bolster Hezbollah in Lebanon represent "election interference"? What is he talking about???

What Chomsky is describing might be called The Boomerang Effect. Republicans support policies that benefit fat cats including disproportionate tax breaks that come back to them as campaign contributions, that somehow result in votes offering spoon feeding to the ignorant. Votes aren't even enough since lately republicans can't win an election by popular vote and have to resort most recently to the Electoral College and the list of cheap desperate schemes not the least of which is gerrymandering. I know "they all do it." but not like republicans do it. Many of us are aware of the rest of the schemes. Many of us are hoping for republicans to be put on the endangered species list then on to extinction as … THEY DON'T REPRESENT US ….they're even Pro Pollution.

This guy needs to study up on Reagan and abortion. Truth is it wasn't a big issue in the 6's when he was gov of calif and when a therapeutic abortion bill passed the legislature 1n1967, he asked an aid to get him info on it cause he "never gave it much thought". He knew the bill would pass by overiding his veto so he did what he could to weaken it so it would only be legal in specific instances one of which was if "pregnancy would cause serious physical or mental harm" to the woman. he was surprised how liberally doctors interpreted this and regretted signing it very quickly. he regarded it his biggest public failure b4 any of that nonsense chomsky said. and after roe was passed the rep party was split but the biggest faction opposed it. It was mostly women who supported it. chomskys analysis is so off it shows his bias.

Republicans turned to racist in the south? Democrats created the KKK Senator Robert Bird (Democrat) was in the highest level of the KKK and served years in the senate. Chomsky is brilliant but he is into anarchy and socialism. Somethings he says I can agree with but he is serving up a big helping of BS in a lot of things he is saying, he’s part of the left socialist movement. He’s a radical himself so think for yourself and do your own research. He talks about the Republicans having a wealthy constituency and having to serve that constituency but that is exactly what the Democrats do as they are owned by the elites and globalist. Who created BLM and ANTIFA? Seriously the man is a brilliant person but he’s pushing his agenda for the DNC. The Democrats have been shafting people for decades! If you can look at any of the Democratic leaders and not see how anti America and how they are constantly subverting our constitution. Gun lovers? When I hear that from people it’s a red flag that you do not understand the constitution and your inalienable rights which both party’s can be guilty of tromping on. This is just another liberal Trump bashing video, the Democrats aren’t doing anything to help the people and haven’t for decades. Our problem is career politicians who have gotten wealthy off our backs and that is both sides of the isle and we cannot and will not solve that problem until we the people quit being divided and take a stand and use the constitution to take back our government!

Chumpsky's views on Russian interference in the 2016 election are delusional and ignore the established facts. "The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion."--from the Mueller Report. The Russians funneled millions into Trump's campaign through the NRA. Trump could not have achieved an electoral college victory without Russia's support and interference. Mueller also documented 10 separate instances of obstruction.
And what have Democrats done wrong? Nothing. They have allowed the DOJ to methodically investigate Trump's crimes. It's not the Democrats' fault that Mueller took more than 2 years. But the Mueller Report is clear: Russia interfered in the election, Trump welcomed the Russia's support and interference, and Trump obstructed Mueller's investigation.
The Democrats have only just begun an impeachment process. They have not wasted two years, as Chumpsky alleged. The logjam in Congress was not caused by Pelosi and the Democrats. It's the work of Moscow Mitch McConnell, who sold his soul to Putin and Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.
Chumpsky is only interesting for the things he omits from his speeches. For instance, he avoids any discussion on whether Trump is illegitimate, on whether Trump is a racist white nationalist, on whether Trump has failed to achieve anything he promised, or on whether Trump is acting in opposition to U.S. national interests. Chumpsky's speech could have been written by Putin.

You were doing pretty well till the end... Chomsky missed it on the Russia thing, but so did Mueller. There were plenty of crimes and misconduct there, it stinks to high heaven. But he let Trump walk on that, and then Barr piled on by distorting the entirety of the investigation. It's all breathtakingly disgusting. Dark money, gerrymandering, voter suppression... The GOP formula for success! This time Russian interference will be even more sweeping and will cloud the results, and Kavanaugh will choose Trump again. The entire Constitution is at stake... So to say the Russia thing is nothing is pretty off the mark... Never heard him be so wrong!

Ten minutes of Chomsky is not enough to explain the complexities of the rise of Trump, his administration, and the circus come hell he created in the US. Most of us live in a bubble whether we understand how a bubble works or not. Chomsky does NOT live in a bubble and he has much to say on how we have f*cked ourselves with the election of Trump. Ten minutes of a clip is not enough to reveal the full context of the argument. I believe full context and reading his other works is better suited for understanding his opinion on #45. This is especially true when he speaks about how the Democrats are unwittingly helping Republicans with their agenda.
Chomsky’s remarks as presented in his short clip puts DEMOCRATS IN A NO-WIN SITUATION. They are damned if they do, damned if they do not. Trump was his own worse enemy. He kept giving us much ammunition to deposit in the “Dump Trump” bank. Who needed Russians?
Professor Chomsky states Russia interference is of little significance, what of Trump as a totally packaged wrecking ball? That is the reason a ten minute clip is deceptive. Listen and read Chomsky works to better understand his views. His perspective is more nuanced than this clip.
Whatever one thinks of Russian interference, Trump has done enough to call for his impeachment. If they can impeach a President over lying about infidelity, they can certainly impeach one over his continual lying to the country about his intent, behavior, actions, and policies. The lavish gifts to the wealthy are certainly evident, yet his base is willfully ignorant or outright denies he is doing anything at cross purposes with their needs.
Trump should account for the last 2.5 years of hell; to my mind that is impeachment. We KNOW impeachment will NOT REMOVE HIM from OFFICE because Republicans control the Senate. However, Trump needs a great big asterisk next to his name as a President of the United States. Notwithstanding the Russian scandal, Trump has many crimes and misdemeanors negatively affecting a majority of citizens. No accountability? Trump will surely run on “See, if I were guilty, they would have impeached me. They did not, so I am innocent”. Who could argue with that position?
Trump has done so much that RUSSIA-GATE is just another SIDE ISSUE. Whatever happened before the election seems less compelling than what Trump has done afterwards. To clarify, I believe Trump was in contact with Russians, but his involvement was mainly FINANCIALLY related and was certainly corrupt. Russians took this to another level to box Trump into the convenient idiot. All of the other Russia related issues were just gravy. Alas, gravy some just could not stomach.
Chomsky’s assessment of how the Southern Strategy was the beginning of social issues taking front and center to garner votes is on point. This strategy illustrating how some voters are single issue voters. By ignoring the total package, exhausted Americans will not think through ramifications. Better still, some may allow their hatred of the “other” guide their vote. Trump made AMERICAN citizens (not just immigrants) targets for violence and death (even before El Paso and Ohio).
Trump’s cabinet appointments were decided for one or two reasons. The first was to reward those that supported him, the second was to destroy the protections those institutions nominally had oversight. It was the drip, drip, drip, process of slowly taking away from Peter to pay Paul. Yet another gift to the wealthy.
He and his cult have taken the country into their own private Twilight Zone world. The country is mentally sick and he encourages this. Monsters in Trump’s league do not happen overnight. It is a slow process leading those not astute enough to comprehend the ramifications wondering around in a rat maze.
I am not knowledgeable enough to suss out the effects of whether impeachment is a good move or not POLITICALLY. I, like many others outside of DC politics look at the atmosphere we live in and think, SOMETHING is NOT RIGHT, now who is going to STAND UP for the PEOPLE? If Republicans can get away with this, they can certainly get away with taking away even the little we have left regarding healthcare, economic opportunity, employment issues, and the erosion of consumer and environmental protections.
Republicans outline healthcare as something to be EARNED. Does that mean humans are not so exceptional after all? The right to live without chronic pain illness or injuries should belong only to those who can pay for treatment? How exactly does this belief square with the right to life movement? Humans MUST be allowed to live so they can die early from preventable diseases, injuries, or illnesses?
Consumer protections are presented as overeager litigation costing small businesses. Environment protections are morphed into “saving the fill-in -the blank unknown species ” dubious campaigns. People fall for these questionable arguments used to discredit real protections; those allowing citizens to have clean air, water, food and providing a recourse to rectify misdeeds by wealthy corporations. Much more, yet this summarizes the most urgent issues of voters.
Democrats do not need Russia-gate to oust this guy. All they need do is call “roll tape” on a continuous loop for the heinous policies, behaviors, actions, and deeds of Trump. Then, ask the country if this is the better way to govern our country? Is Trump the President to address grievances of the working and middle classes or is he a tool of distraction playing on fear?

This is probably the greatest bullshit attached to what really happened with Trump I've ever seen, which is typical Chomsky, a fake communist.
It's much simpler than this self aggrandizing fake analysis. Trump put millions of people back into jobs and self respect, increased wages, brought jobs and companies back to the U.S. stuff that Obama referred to as a magic wand trick.
Fortunately, Trump will take you out with the trash once again, having totally exposed your efforts to "totally transform this country" into a socialist disaster. (Obama quote).

My take from all of this (and I have been stating this long before seeing this video) is pretty simple: Trump is a symptom of a populace trying to hire a guy to fix a government that no longer serves the people--it serves corporate masters instead. They attempted to do it with Obama (a one term Senator with no major political capital before his election), and did so again with Trump (who had ZERO political capital before his election). Yeah, you and Chomski pretty much nailed it.

Same thing happened in Germany with Schroeder, this scum. A son of a cleaner, he was so full of inferiority complexes that as soon as he led the Spd Party he betrayed it all, dressed in 20000 dollar Armani suits, smoked Cohiba and was seen only with bosses, they called him the comrade of the bosses. He said, his friend putin, who now gave him a well paid job at Russian Gazprom, was a hundred percent pure democrat, lol. With Schroeder, Germany has become the socially most unjust country in the western world, if you have a single mother, you are fucked from the beginning, and this was done by Schroeder, son of a single poor working mom! Now the formerly 40 percent party SPD is down to ten percent or less, is completely done, gone, ruined, discredited, path less and has no credibility. German workers in fact have no party representing them anymore. It was different with willy Brandt and Schmidt. Now they have to shut up, have no one who speaks for them and succumb to corporations who run the proletarian now by porn, video games, shit music, cheap holidays in Spain and a fake participation in world affairs thru social media.

Chomsky is a well read, cleverZionist obfuscator.
He gives the obvious view of what is to be seen in order to hide the Zionist (Evil) Essence of which he is part.
I will expose more of this conundrum later.
Let me end this short note by pointing out these points:
1. Trump’s victories are due to the fact that Zionism has backed him to play the role he is playing.
2. Zionism is the controlling essence of this world.
3 This controlling very evil essence called Jehovah’s Zionism is to be TOTALLY destroyed in the Endtime ( which is NOW) inspite of the opposing false religious views found in the fraudulent Bible.

Agree with most of this analysis from both Chomsky and Kulinski, but I think it's a bridge too far to say that Democrats put "all their eggs in one basket" via the Mueller investigation. Imagine, if you will, what Republicans would've done with the opportunity if everything that we know Trump has done...was done by a sitting Democratic president.
Conservatives would have been in the streets with torches demanding that a Democratic president be subpoena'd to testify under oath - as Bill Clinton did for his comparatively innocuous sexual adventures. The fact that Mueller did not get Trump under oath to answer about the Trump Tower meeting, etc., is not the fault of Democratic strategists, and marks the moment that our serial liar of a President dodged the bullet.

What’s more, he received dividends [$5,001 to $15,000 in dividends] from Vector Group, a holding company with deep financial ties to Russia.
--Questions have also been raised about whether Och-Ziff Capital Management, a hedge fund where Barr was a board director from 2016 to 2018, may also be too closely connected to the Russia investigation.
--The billionaire Ziff brothers, Dirk, Robert and Daniel, provided seed money to hedge fund manager Daniel Och to start the firm in 1992. They retained a small stake in the company after it went public in 2007.
--The brothers are also a subject of interest to the Russian government because of their work with billionaire William Browder, a financier who ran afoul of the Kremlin.
--Why is Giuliani supporting Trump?
--Jean-Francois Revel wrote “Unlike the Western leadership, which is tormented by remorse and a sense of guilt,”, “Soviet leaders’ consciences are perfectly clear, which allows them to use brute force with utter serenity both to preserve their power at home and to extend it abroad.”
This is what sparked a love-fest for Putin’s tactics from Republicans immediately following his invasion of Ukraine. “That’s what you call a leader” said Rudy Giuliani. Rep. Hal Rogers (R-MI), who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, said that Putin was playing chess while President Obama played marbles.

--Mitch McConnell reportedly linked to Putin, Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska and Russian companies [DailyKos]
--Right now, the point being made is that Mitch McConnell is benefiting from his direct and indirect ties to Putin and Russian oligarchs, which most likely guided McConnell’s recent vote to lift Russian sanctions. And it would seem he clearly voted in the interest of himself, his king and his Russian ties, when McConnell should have been working in the best interest of the American people. Alas, his Senate seat and constituents are merely stepping stones to more corruption.
--Many have suspected for some time that smirky McConnell was looped into the Russian knot one way or another. Watching the GOP leader defend and cling to Trump like a tick, has been difficult and disturbing to witness for over two years. Will this news get us closer to McConnell’s political demise? Millions would hope.

--As President Donald Trump appears to sink deeper into legal trouble and special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation pushes forward, the relative silence of congressional Republicans becomes increasingly difficult to ignore.
--But apart from the obvious reasons conservative lawmakers might steer clear of commenting on Trump’s situation — party loyalty and fear of inviting a presidential Twitter attack come to mind — it is worth remembering that several noteworthy Republicans have Russia links as well.

34 years ago, a KGB defector chillingly predicted modern America [BigThink]
--In 1984, Bezmenov gave an interview to G. Edward Griffin from which much can be learned today. His most chilling point was that there's a long-term plan put in play by Russia to defeat America through psychological warfare and "demoralization". It's a long game that takes decades to achieve but it may already be bearing fruit.
--Bezmenov made the point that the work of the KGB mainly does not involve espionage, despite what our popular culture may tell us. Most of the work, 85% of it, was "a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare."
--What does that mean? Bezmenov explained that the most striking thing about ideological subversion is that it happens in the open as a legitimate process. "You can see it with your own eyes," he said. The American media would be able to see it, if it just focused on it.
--Bezmenov described this process as "a great brainwashing" which has four basic stages.
The first stage is called "demoralization" which takes from 15 to 20 years to achieve.
According to the former KGB agent, that is the minimum number of years it takes to re-educate one generation of students that is normally exposed to the ideology of its country.
--Bezmenov was also instructed not to waste time with idealistic leftists, they would become disillusioned, bitter, and adversarial when they realized the true nature of Soviet Communism. He discovered that many such were listed for execution once the Soviets achieved control.
--Bezmenov was encouraged to recruit from large circulation, established conservative media, rich filmmakers, intellectuals, cynical and egocentric people who lacked moral principles.
The Russians know exactly what kind of people Trump, the GOP, the Kochs their followers are.
The whole process follows 4-steps:
1. Demoralize a nation (15-20 years):Expose your ideology to your nation’s “soft heads”. At the higher stage, the citizens of that country start brainwashing their own countrymen. (The Tea Party and the Trump Supporters) Trump has been discussing the presidency since 1988.
2. Destabilization (2-5 years): does not care about your patterns. Essentials are attacked – Defense, Economy and Polity. (Trump,the GOP and the Kochs are attacking the US)
3. Crisis (6 weeks): bring a country to crisis in such a way that violent change happens, which is followed by the next stage. (The Faux Southern Border crisis, North Korea Nukes, Trump followers creating civil war if Trump impeached)
4. Normalization (infinite period): This is “tongue-in-cheek” and cynical. Because Normalization means adherence of the enemy country to your own ideology. The people who were instrumental in bringing the enemy country to this stage are “lined up against the wall and shot dead”.

How Big Oil and Big Tobacco Partnered with the Koch Brothers to take over the GOP
--“Over the years, Rich Fink, Charles Koch’s political adviser, and his various Koch protégés have occasionally talked publicly about what would be needed to take over one of the two national political parties from the outside and place Libertarian, free-market principles at its center.”
The Kochs spent a billion dollars of dark money purchasing the republicans and putting them into office.
The attack by the Russians, the GOP and the Kochs was never meant to sway the entire population of the nation. They knew that approximately 30% of the population would follow like sheep. This had worked in other nations that Putin's KGB propaganda psychology techniques had been used. This was meant to be the Trump's base.
STEP 2. Destabilization (2-5 years): does not care about your patterns. Essentials are attacked – Defense, Economy and Polity. (Trump,the GOP and the Kochs are attacking the US)

Its text began: “Russian regime has been cultivating, supporting and assisting TRUMP for at least 5 years. Aim, endorsed by PUTIN, has been to encourage splits and divisions in the western alliance.”

Trump Raises Specter Of Supporters Turning Violent If They Don’t Get Their Way
“I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of Bikers for Trump,” the president warns... He didn’t define what that “certain point” might be in the Breitbart interview published Tuesday. But the implication was that his supporters would stand for a limited amount of political decisions that they opposed until the “tough people” made things “very, very bad.” Violence by a military opposed to political decisions would be a coup.

The Koch Brothers are my Brother [HP]
--Facing accusations of patent violations, Koch looked abroad, including what was then Stalin-era Russia, where he set up Russia’s oil refineries. After setting up Stalin with refineries, Stalin kicked Koch out of Russia. Back in the US, Koch went about fighting Stalin for payback.
--The Koch brothers didn’t just inherit their father’s fortune. They also inherited his politics. In 1958, Fred Koch was a founding member of the John Birch Society, the right-wing extremist group that opposed civil rights and claimed that both the Democratic and Republican Parties were infiltrated by the Communist Party. In his 1960 self-published book, A Business Man Looks at Communism, Fred Koch wrote that “The colored man looms large in the Communist plan to take over America,” and that welfare was a secret plot to attract rural blacks and Puerto Ricans to Eastern cities to vote for Communist causes and “getting a vicious race war started.” The John Birch Society helped fuel a wave of hysteria against unions, civil rights groups, intellectuals, public schools, liberal clergy and others whom they considered a threat to America…
--You can see their father’s words in David Koch’s 1980 presidential campaign platform AND in the actions of the republicans of today. The Koch’s spent a billion dollars to purchase and put the republicans into office. The John Birch Society was instrumental in Trump’s campaign (Politico)
Here are just a few excerpts of the Libertarian Party platform that David Koch ran on in 1980:
“Abolish Medicare and Medicaid.”
“Abolish the Social Security system.
“Abolish welfare, relief projects, aid to children and ‘aid to the poor’
“Abolish government regulated schools and compulsory education.”
“Abolish compulsory insurance/tax-supported health and abortion services.”
“Abolish the regulation of the medical insurance industry.”
“Abolish all taxation.”
“Abolish minimum wage laws.”
“Abolish the Postal Service.
“Abolish the Federal Aviation Administration.”
“Abolish the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”
“Abolish the Federal Election Commission.”
“Abolish the Food and Drug Administration.”
“Abolish the Environmental Protection Agency.”
“Abolish the Department of Energy.”
“Abolish the Department of Transportation.”
“Abolish the Occupational Safety and Health Act.”
“Abolish all public roads and national highways.”
“Abolish requiring safety belts, air bags, or crash helmets.”
“Privatization inland waterways and control of all water
“Abolish all lending laws.”
“Abolish all branches of the service except the Army”

'Hidden History' Of Koch Brothers Traces Their Childhood And Political Rise [NPR] -
Fred Koch, the patriarch of the family, was an expert in building oil refineries, and he and a friend named William Rhodes Davis proposed building one in Germany during 1934, '35, that period in there. In 1933, Adolf Hitler became chancellor of the Third Reich in Germany, so this meant working under the Third Reich. And in order to get permission, they actually had to go to Hitler himself, and William Rhodes Davis did the "Heil Hitler" to greet Hitler, and finally they got Hitler to greenlight this proposal so that they could build an oil refinery in Hamburg. Koch still loved Nazism, so much so, he employed a Nazi party nanny to raise his children in the US.

Trump and the Koch Brothers Are Working in Concert They disagree about trade, tariffs and immigration, but don’t be fooled. Neither side can get what it really wants without help from the other.
President Trump and the Koch brothers have made it clear that they don’t like each other. Politically speaking, they are in fundamental disagreement over trade, tariffs and immigration. Nonetheless, there is a functional Trump-Koch alliance, and the Republican Party has capitalized handsomely on it. Trump’s racially freighted, anti-immigrant rhetoric has been essential to persuading white voters to agree to Republicans’ long-sought tax and regulatory policies. These policies are inimical or irrelevant to the interests of low- and moderate-income Americans. They have been promulgated by the Trump administration, but many of them have been meticulously prepared and packaged by the Kochs’ massive political network.
Take a look at the ALEC, The American Legislative Exchange Council another Koch Industries subsidiary. The ALEC writes legislation and gives it to a republican representative. Without even transferring the legislation to Official Representative Paper, the republican brings it to the floor to be voted on. Corporations are writing legislation via republicans.

Koch Brothers Work to Rig the Courts
The Koch brothers are branching out – to the judicial branch, that is.
Having funded state-based think tanks and advocacy groups that are designed to write and enact anti-worker, anti-regulatory legislation, the brothers’ latest target is the federal judiciary. The goal is to ensure that the federal bench is full of judges who, for the next few decades, will issue rulings that enrich billionaires and CEOs like the Kochs – at the expense of working people.
