IF THE FRENCH HAVE NO WORD FOR “FUCK”
…how the hell do they communicate?
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
“Would”? I really meant “wouldn’t” explained Trump. Well, if you believe that you probably believe our ABC is politically neutral. But the media was far too busy revelling in an apparent Trump stuff-up to listen to what he actually said.
This is what he said as his correction: “I have full confidence in US intel agencies…under my people”. Under his people? So in 2016 he had no confidence in the Obama intel crew led by the despicable deplorables in Brennan and Clapper, with some assistance from a treasonous Obama, Comey, Lynch and Hillary. How could any ally except Turnbull and Shorten have confidence in that pond scum?
The treasonous trio
2016? Wasn’t it then that the claimed Russian “interference” was at its height paying for cheap ads on Facebook of all things? So Trump hasn’t apologised for anything, and nor should he, he has just confirmed his mistrust in US intel only at the time of the election process and the hyperventilating media completely missed it!
He has just indicated complete trust in US intel now, so the Dow arrested a serious fall, Theresa and Angela breathed a sigh of relief and Turnbull is still trying to figure out WTF he said.
The phosphorescent hatred of Trump has left responsible journalism wallowing in its wake.
International espionage games have been played by all nations always and they never own up to it. Yet the Left has no fear of China who is targeting the most harmful retaliatory tariffs to affect States that Trump will have difficulty retaining.
Bugger all to worry about when the Chinks stole the blueprints for the new ASIO edifice in Canberra. No, the in thing according to Bob Carr, Plibersek and Sam Dastyari is that Russia must be the enemy now. Why? It was Putin who killed off ISIS in al Raqqa…something Obama could never do, as he refused to allow a soldier to kill a Muslim unless the Muslim killed him first.
Without Russia we might all be speaking German now.
But words like “Russophobia” do matter and French words are even more descriptive… you see the French language has no equivalent of the word “fuck”. How the hell they communicate without it is a mystery!
So they were forced to invent brilliantly meaningful words that explain the most nuanced of thoughts without the “F” bomb… words like “détente”, a word that Trump used without even knowing it.
The word “détente” was an order given by French generals to their archers in medieval times of heightened conflict. It literally meant to relax all tensioned bow strings while still keeping the arrows and bolts in place.
Detente set aside time to spend talking to each other rather than killing each other. Our stilted versions would have been words like “ceasefire”, “armistice”, “truce” or similar, which are all designed to be broken.
The word “détente” indicates far more than what English can offer and only Reagan came close with, “Trust but verify”.
Trump has just exercised the true meaning of “détente” and he offered it to Putin who appears to have understood it! Clearly the Left has never even heard of it,
…and to understand its meaning is far too much to ask of CNN or our ABC and Fairfax.
