“. . . (T)here are two primary consequences of a Trump presidency that actually serve globalists and elites in the long run.
The first is the consequence of a perfect scapegoat for the economic crisis which the elites have been gestating since 2008. Trump enters the White House with a clear political mandate . . ., a free hand of power to sovereignty and liberty champions to defeat the collectivist tyranny of cultural Marxists on the Left once and for all. . . (B)y extension, they also inherit absolute responsibility, whether they like it or not. . .
Under Trump, the last stage of economic collapse can finally be initiated by the financial elites and most of the world including half the population of the U.S. will immediately and without question blame conservatism, nationalism, sovereignty advocates and Trump for the disaster. . .
I highly recommend they research the concept of 4th Generation Warfare. . . The essence of the most advanced form of warfare is the ability to defeat an opponent, or a population, without having to fight at all. Instead, the master tactician seeks to influence his opponent to surrender without fighting, or, to influence his opponent to destroy himself. This is accomplished primarily through propaganda, subversion, asymmetric warfare (terrorism and insurgency) and most importantly, co-option. . .
The financial elites, highly motivated and highly organized, are the single most important gatekeepers to geopolitical change today. . . This is not to say that the elites are “omnipotent.” Frankly, they don’t need to be. . . Any person of above-average intelligence and unlimited capital (as the financial elites have) can do considerable damage to a society, bring empires to their knees and condition the populace to think and react in a specific fashion. . .
The reality is, the more ignorant the population, the easier it is to control and misdirect them. . . The smarter and more vigilant any given population, the more difficult it is to influence them through deception. This is very simple. To put it even more bluntly, the elites get away with subversive tyranny because there are too many wilfully stupid people.
Following this line of thinking, there is a second consequence of Election 2016 that greatly concerns me — the potential for co-option of the Liberty Movement, the only existing opposing force to globalism. Co-option requires the centralization of a group in thought and deed under the influence of a small number of hands, or a single white knight figure. . .
“The other ingenious aspect of the Trump campaign is really who he is running against — Hillary Clinton, a rabidly liberal candidate even more hated than Barack Obama. A candidate with a potentially serious criminal record and a penchant for an outright communistic world view far beyond that of Bernie Sanders. . . The unmitigated horror inherent in the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency is like adding jet fuel to the Trump campaign. . .”
“Whenever you have a rebellion focused on the inherent ideals of freedom, totalitarian institutions struggle to intervene. The issue is, freedom is not only moral, but practical. Wherever true freedom exists, people are not only happier, but more productive and prosperous. . . The only way to destroy a rebellion like this, a rebellion like the liberty movement, is to make it about something other than freedom. The powers that be have to convince that movement to support policies that are destructive to their own ideals. If this can be done, then that rebellion has lost the advantage of principle — the only advantage that really matters.”
The co-option of the liberty movement is not necessarily direct. It can be achieved through what I call “absorption.” Take note that the mainstream media and elitists avoid using the label “liberty movement” at all costs . . .; labelling us “populists” of the “Alt-Right.” The liberty movement has been fighting the globalists in the information war for a long time. The average conservative Republican is new to this party, and yet the liberty movement is being called the “Alt-Right?”
Even Bloomberg pointed out with relative glee that the Tea Party (liberty movement) . . . could be devoured by Trump’s campaign and reconstituted into something else. . .
In the battle against the Marxist left, it is important that we do not lose track of our original identity, or the elites at the top of the pyramid. Also important is that we do not forsake our original principles in order to achieve “victory” over our adversaries. This is a very difficult problem to discuss when you consider who we are fighting against.
I have always said that it was the social justice cult and their zealotry that drove the rise of Trump. It was they that created the public firestorm with their open contempt for our right to free thought and free expression. But keep in mind, this has all happened before, and with terrible results. In Europe during the 1920s and early 1930s, the overall rise of Fascism was in direct response to economic crisis and the insurgency of communism. Communism is essentially collectivism on the far left side of the political spectrum. Fascism is a collectivist trap the “Right” sometimes falls into. Both lead to centralization and tyranny.
Communism is tyranny in the name of undermining the strong and independent in order to make room for the weak. Fascism is tyranny in the name of routing out the weak to make room for the strong. . .
The elites are notorious for playing the extreme left against the right in order to drive conservatives to the opposite extreme. My concern is not only that through Trump the elites can easily scapegoat conservative movements for a global economic crisis, but also that through the intense vitriol of the social justice left, infuriated by their loss to Trump in the election, conservatives may be driven to abandon their constitutional ideals and become the monster they hoped to destroy. . .to install him in the White House as a means to rewrite the liberty movement into a villainous character, rather than the rebellious hero of our story.
So far it would seem that the temptations to revert to fascism are many. Set aside the threat of ISIS terrorism and think about the insanity showcased by the Left. . . They are stepping away from the normal activities and mind set of cultural Marxism and evolving into full blown communists. Instead of admitting that their ideology is a failure in every respect, they are doubling down.
When this evolution is complete, the Left WILL resort to direct violent action on a larger scale, and they will do so with a clear conscience because, in their minds, they are fighting fascism. Ironically, it will be this behavior by leftists that may actually push conservatives towards a fascist model. Conservatives might decide to fight crazy with more crazy.
The mainstream media and popular media largely controlled by leftist elements are only pouring gasoline on the fire, with major pundits and media personalities steadily hinting at “revolution” in the face of a “Trumpist” America. But here is the thing, these people are kidding themselves.
The alternative media is eclipsing corporate media today. Their time is coming to an end…
If the Left leaps into the realm of violent Marxist revolution, they will lose in America. That said, there is a cost. The cost could very well be the heritage of freedom that conservatives desire to protect. The alternative media may overrun the corporate media, but will we become the corporate media in the process?
If under Trump conservatives fall to temptation and exploit the “ring of power” that is government to exert dominance in the name of stopping the Left, then they will ultimately be destroyed as well.
In this case history will not remember conservatives as freedom fighters rebelling against globalist machinations, but as evil “populists” that caused global economic collapse and the re-establishment of the institution of fascism. The globalists can swoop in after the dust has settled and use the American collapse fable as a story to tell children for the next century. . .
My position is that the Liberty Movement must always remain the Liberty Movement if conservatives and sovereignty proponents want a chance to survive. We have to be willing remain just as watchful and critical of Trump as we would have been with Hillary Clinton. And, if he breaks his promises or goes against his oath to the constitution, we must be willing to go to war with him, just as we would have with Clinton.
This puts us in a tenuous position — fighting the Left is bad enough. Going against Trump if he steps out of line is worse, because then we can be labelled leftists as well. This is the essence of 4th Generation warfare — cornering an opponent so that each move he makes is a sacrifice. If the opponent is not careful, he might just destroy himself.
There is a way to undermine this strategy by the elites; as conservatives we must treat Trump like a new employee. We have to put him on probation and watch him, not give him the keys to the store on the first day. We must also continue to educate fellow conservatives (and any on the Left that have the sense to listen) that this fight is FAR from over. In fact, it has just begun. In the end, our strategy must be for the Liberty Movement to absorb the “Alt-Right”, instead of being absorbed. And, we must focus our efforts and actions against top globalists and their organizations rather than only focusing on the regressive left.
People must understand that the real threat in all of this has been and always will be the globalists. Instead of fighting each other in a futile theater of the absurd, we must fight and remove them from the chess board, wherever and whenever they show their faces in the daylight.
Long, but thoughtful. I too am concerned that the movement towards Liberty and back to the Founders Constitution embodied in the ground roots of the TEA movement, and other such movements, will be co-opted and betrayed. The TEA movement was certainly undermined by profiteers and criminal suppression by the Obama DoJ.
Trump has a grand opportunity, so long as he doesn’t fall for the siren song of autocracy. His cabinet picks so far have indicated a willingness to bring the GOP back together as a unified Party, but in so doing, he may alienate the Trump Democrats. Yet he is a deft marketer, and will likely hold them, at least initially, so long as he acts on their concerns.
The kicker is, if the B. Smith’s ongoing elitist conspiracy premise is true, as it seems to be, and they pull the props currently maintaining the shaky global financial system, how can Trump fulfill those goals and cement the coalition for the common man?
That ancient Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times”, still holds sway, and becomes ever more frightening.
Yet, out of chaos springs opportunity!
