Since a year before he won the election, I questioned Donald Trump's sincerity and I occasionally caught a great deal of flak for it. My position was based on the man's entire life: he has a kindergarten-level sensibility about many things. He has broken his promises to at least two wives. He has long been a confidante and close friend of many ultra-liberals and for most of his life was a liberal himself. Though he is a brash risk-taker who has pointed out many sins of Washington DC -- "the swamp" -- he now swims happily in it, and tries to drown the only true conservatives in Congress, simply because they adhere to the Constitution rather than to the demands of socialists.
When Rafael Cruz Jr. and the Never Trump movement hit the limelight, I reacted by rallying for Trump and I've attempted to give him benefit of the doubt in most cases. But there's a new red flag popping up each week that makes me feel that my first assessment of Trump was the more accurate one, and we conservatives have been snookered again, as we were with Reagan. But at least Reagan the Californian had truly played the part of a conservative for decades after being a liberal in his youth.
Red Flag #1: Whenever geopolitics is brought to such an unstable state as today, history proves that a major move is in the offing for bankers, oil companies, and the war industry with its careerists and endless suppliers. For all of these, war means profits -- even if America loses. Trump is the war industry's chump; always has been. He is playing right into their hands. Eisenhower said that if US troops were in Europe ten years after NATO was launched as a 'temporary' measure, that he would consider it a failure. To see the ultimate in hypocrisy/waffling, this article by Tom McKay showing 45 times that Trump told Obama NOT to do what Trump did in Syria. Ann Coulter put it most succinctly in this article.
Red Flag #2: Hillary and company are as corrupt as can be imagined. Trump promised he was going to pursue her indictment. Not only did he renege on that promise; he praised her. His daughter Ivanka and Chelsea Clinton are best friends; keep this in mind, because Ivanka Kushner is the real power among the White House wives.
Red Flag #3: Trump is to the left of Willard Romney as pertains to communist healthcare and a staggeringly huge windfall to the insurance industry. This is flagrant violation of our highest law, the Constitution. But because cheering throngs of socialists approve, we now get the sharp edge of populism. This is what comes of playing to the crowd as Trump has always done. When that crowd is an unprincipled, feckless horde of parasites riding on America's productive citizens, populism is antithetical to constitutionalism. The bureaucratic Left and the powerful, ruthless insurance industry have had this plunder in their sights for over 30 years. Now, with Trump in their corner as a co-conspirator to violate the Constitution, he can bring millions of Wal-Mart shoppers to smooth over the largest heist in American economic history. Mark my words: that's Trump's trajectory.
Red Flag #4: As with violating America's highest law, Trump also has no qualms about breaching the bounds of propriety. He has made his billionaire son-in-law Jared Kushner an embarrassing crown prince in European style, jetting around the world pushing back-door globalism. White House Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor Steve Bannon has complained about it off the record, but we hear nary a peep from most conservative quarters. Imagine if Bill Clinton or Obama had had a son-in-law, doing the same; nepotism laws aside, the impropriety is embarrassingly clear.
Red Flag #5: He has picked Kevin Hassett as Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, whose European-style, pro-globalist, pro-immigration stance Breitbart points out: "President Donald Trump has picked an economic advisor who believes in growing the nation’s economy by importing workers and consumers, and by expanding free-trade outsourcing, despite Trump’s “buy American, hire American” campaign promises."
Red Flag #6: He reneged on his promise to rid the FED of Janet Yellen. Now he says she's good for the FED.
I originally had a red flag #7, that during the campaign Trump constantly reiterated the fact that China is a currency manipulator, but Mr. Trump has backed down on his campaign position there, too. But in THIS post, Adrian Sindile explains that Trump's flip-flop in that case is a smart move. After reading it, I agree.
Red Flag #8: Now Trump's attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has been tasked by the Deep State to go hook-and-tongs after Julian Assange for his leak of Wikileaks 'Vault 7', and CIA director Mike Pompeo is joining him. Another depressing flip-flop, after Trump's support of Mr. Assange during the campaign for simply exposing secrets of corrupt and evil government. In this case, with the Vault 7 files, we now see the CIA operating exactly like the creepy Big Brother in George Orwell's novel...and that should be the huge news story!
When he won the presidency, I said that the Deep State would clean the Donald's clock and tie him in knots within months. This is now happening. Or, Mr. Trump was actually defrauding conservative America all along, just to win the office.
Although we believe that Steve Bannon may not be around much longer, We the People will not settle for Mr. Bannon being the token conservative in a "We Love the Swamp" royal family, with Prince and Princess Kushner running foreign and domestic policy. This nepotism is unprecedented in American presidential history. The Constitution does not authorize this, the American people did not vote for this.
None of us signed up for this. But since the staggering arrogance of its 9/11 attack in broad daylight, the evil ones of this world in collusion with the Deep State -- the collusive, feckless bureaucracy and ruthless industry that have controlled every president since Lincoln -- are pulling Trump together with such unlikely friends as Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Charles Schumer, just as Pat Buchanan wrote predicted four months ago in this article. So whether Mr. Bannon stays or goes at this point, his high constitutional principles are out the window now.
So much for the bad news. The good news: history's watersheds have a way of happening incredibly quickly.
Here is the potential power of those tens of millions of Americans who voted Trump into office: that power is still available to finally end the 150-year-long Deep State hijacking. So the great news amidst all the red flags is that We the People, even a small but repentant remnant of a few hundred thousand, can change Mr. Trump's mind and trajectory. Then -- at least if he is not a fraud -- we will happily give him cover as he relegates the Kushners back to private life where they belong.
We did not elect Exxon-Mobil, but Mr. Trump dragged in Rex Tillerson anyway.
We did not elect Goldman Sachs, but Mr. Trump dragged in Steve Mnuchin anyway.
We did not elect a royal family, but Mr. Trump dragged in the Kushner crowned heads anyway -- and if you think The Princess has less power on the throne than the First Lady, you have not followed the Donald/Ivanka chemistry over the decades.
We The People have the authority over the Constitution to restore our rule of law and the limits of that Constitution over the crimes and escapades of our elected servants. No matter how wealthy, egotistical, charismatic, or brash they may be.
AmericaAgain! is the only full-spectrum, lawful, peaceful, long-term way to accomplish this. We invite Mr. Bannon and Breitbart News to finally give AmericaAgain! the coverage they have denied us for the past year, because from where I sit, it is the only way for Mr. Trump to return to his base, and to the Constitution -- by force. He will not do so willingly, based on the trajectory of his entire adult life, and his trajectory in the DC swamp. It's time for We The People to stop looking to presidents -- the favored puppets of the Deep State and the elite who own it -- and take America back, beginning in 6400 American communities.
