Saturday, 11 November:
First of all, Happy Veterans Day and a shout out to
the Marine Corps as well, who turned 242 years old this week. May the thoughts and prayers be with those who serve, and to those who never returned.
As the saying goes, 'all gave some, some gave all'.
Donald Trump just celebrated an anniversary
as well, and it was the first year of his presidency. Now, that's kind of a misnomer, his administration really started midnight 20 January. That delay weighed heavily on the newcomers, as will be pointed out here.
It's been a mixed bag so far, but
that isn't necessarily all his fault, nor the fault of those he brought with. He ran into a buzzsaw, one that hasn't yet quit.
First thing to remember: The 70 days after the win and before the inauguration. Those facts are simple. Trump won an election
very few thought he'd win. Now, this site knew instinctively he was going to win as soon as the conviction that he was serious was established.
That would be September of 2015. Up till then he could have been wrestling NBC for a better deal for Celebrity
Apprentice. Why he would leave a very successful and lucrative career to take on the presidency was the question.
Once again, the answer is simple. Trump has been toying with this for over 30 years, and his issues have been consistent: The United States
has been taken advantage of in international trade, the working class is being left behind, and we are involved in unnecessary foreign conflicts.
There are interviews with him over that period. He was remarkably consistent.
The conventional wisdom
was how could a novice, a 'carnival barker' as the Previous Occupant referred to him, beat 16 other GOP candidates in a supposed 'deep field' and then knock off the Smartest Woman on Earth with billions behind her.
Instead, others saw the obvious. That
16 feckless bureaucrats and the worst candidate in presidential history would be fairly easy pickings for a street wise, self made billionaire developer with world wide business dealings.
These few voices, this one among them, intuitively knew. If it
was even remotely fair, Trump would win. Namely, his opponent was, and always will be, unelectable. And he was smart. He went out and met with the movers and shakers of the new media, and the newly formed 'alt right'.
This would be Steve Bannon, and
would lead to underground radio star Alex Jones. He was both fearless, and brutally honest. No other presidential candidate would do an hour with Jones, but he did. Gladly.
This got the nascent nationalist movement stirred, and they thought they saw
hope. Trump represented someone unbeholding to government and immune to bribery. Someone who, while a little rough around the edges, as is most inner city New York types, direct and honest.
Trump travelled the country and met the people. The one's his
opponent unwisely referred to as 'the deplorables', probably the single dumbest statement ever made by a national candidate.
They knew, immediately, they had the tip of their spear.
You know the rest. He cruised to a relatively easy victory;
the nomination was a closer than the election but as long as you had John Kasich on the stage one sort of knew the textbook RINO, who's only difference from the other side is an elephant logo instead of a donkey.
Or jackass, if you will.
election night was called at 2 AM,, but it was really over about 10 eastern, when Pennsylvania went for him. He already had Florida and Ohio. The rout was on.
This dramatic change in events was unforeseen to many; blinded by their arrogance which bred
a stupidity of epic proportions. Dumbfounded, they had to think quick.
Not only 8 years, but really 103 years of careful planning was about to be taken apart. From the creation of the Federal Reserve at Jekyll Island to the IRS, a couple of world wars,
abandoning the gold standard, putting half the nation on welfare of some sort, and opening the borders to water down the vote was now at stake.
Not to mention a LOT of criminal conduct. Keep in mind that progressives want to 'progress past'
the current system, which they see as corrupt and unfair. Therefore, committing crimes are acceptable as long as it's 'for the cause'.
Like William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, convicted domestic terrorists who advocated re-education camps for those who
could be rehabbed, and death camps for those who couldn't.
Now tenured professors in Chicago academia. 'BFF' of the Previous Occupant.
This criminal behavior was widespread, so much so that the loser famously texted her campaign manager
in an expletive loaded message that boiled down to 'we're all going to jail' if she were to lose.
Therefore the plots got hatched. A probe into Trump's associates, which had been illegally done by the previous administration by 'unmasking' US citizens
in violation of their rights and seeing that his desire to improve relations with Russia gave them an opening.
They could accuse HIM of what THEY did. Classic.
So, hours after the loss the plot was hatched, basically the brainchilld of Robbie
Mook and Ben Rhodes, and they went to work. First target: General Mike Flynn.
They had 70 days to set up everything, right down to the timing of the leaks. The media was 100% complicit.
But something went awry. They underestimated Trump, which
is the typical handprint of their movement. They are so positive about being right, and controlling every aspect of information, that when they lose control they have no idea how to correct it.
So, they double down. This makes them eminently predictable,
and the current rage of race nad sex baiting are the shiny bits they can't resist, and when the Trump inner circle baits them with it they can't help themselves.
As Steve Bannon said, 'let them talk about race 24/7. It will be their demise'.
right. People don't give a rat's rear end about it. They want better pay, more freedom. Trump spends 100% of his time addressing this. But they won't go there.
If the argument is on the issues, they lose hands down. Preaching income redistribution only
goes so far, and emphasizing victimization is tiresome.
When only hours after the inauguration ceremony, activists funded by various left wing causes assembled just outside the White House and started what would be the 'resist' movement and an around
the clock effort to unseat Trump began.
One year later one thing is clear. Their attempts have been largely futile, and what has worked is both short term and counterproductive. Russia is turning around to bite them now.
They should have thought
of that up front. They had until Labor Day to make their case, and have the man impeached. But the trap only got a few small fish, and to this point there is still not any evidence that Trump is even under investigation.
The impeachment and removal
of Donald Trump was, and is, a fantasy. It isn't going to happen.
The fallback option has taken place. Now, working with the never Trump GOP denizens, they will will sabotage any real legislation -like McCain did with the health care act- through parliamentary
There are 'Republicans' who would gladly see Democrat progressives seize power back to get rid of Trump, and his new party of deplorables. They want their globalist macro capitalism back.
The hell with the wage earner. They'll do
what they're told.
Now, has Trump made any mistakes? Sure he has.
However, most of them are rookie errors, they had to create a cabinet on the fly and with the full opposition of the other side united to stop him. This is how Mike Flynn, a good
man with a few dodgy decisions on his part, made a cut he shouldn't have.
Of allowing his son Don Jr to be a campaign aide. He got in over his head in what now is proving to be a DNC/Global GPS trap. However, that trap is now coming back to get them,
as the facts now point to a dirty scheme with FBI complicity.
The New Front will be waged in congress, where you now see the charges levelled at Roy Moore of Alabama. Moore, who is four weeks away from becoming a Senator, is someone the swamp doesn't
They've been pretty clear about that, no secret there. But all of a sudden a man with four decades of public service gets hit with sexual impropriety claims from 1979. There has been plenty of time for these charges to have derailed his
But no. All of a sudden, there are multiple charges against him. Now, this site isn't a fan of Moore, who is a relic of a different age. He's a fire and brimstone type lacking in the type of tolerance this era requires.
Mo Brooks was
the choice here. But the people of Alabama spoke; they didn't want Luther Strange, a reliable McConnell/swamp puppet. The deep state is counting on the senate to keep Trump in check, and Moore is a wild card they don't want.
So, the Washington Post
sends a reporter -she is a career criminal with multiple interstate charges of check fraud against her- to find women who will cry 'rape'. There are reports that one was Clinton employee, another offered over $1,000 to tell her story, and so on.
predictable 'never Trump' crowd came out instantly; McCain, followed by Jeff Flake and Mitt Romney all said he's guilty and needs to go. The charges are enough, they said.
This is the New Front on display. As the Russia investigation winds down and
Trump isn't implicated, the progressive left, the RINO's and the media will try to block every piece of legislation that would give the adminstation a victory.
They want to flip the House, and keep the establishment GOP in charge of the Senate. They,
the so-called Republicans, will happily have a failed four year presidency and a Democrat victory in 2020 as long as THEIR positions are protected.
That's why the tea party, or the alt right, or whatever the movement is called, can't lose sight of the
ball. The 2018 midterms will be hugely important, and the purge of the GOP must continue.
Like Steve Bannon said, 'this isn't going to be easy. They won't give up power willingly; we'll have to fight them every day'.
This first year is, as Churchill
once said, not the beginning, nor the end. It is the end of the beginning...
