At this point, Trump is surrounded by America's enemies dictating policy from inside the White House. Guys like Steve Bannon are OUT, while crooks like Jared Kushner are IN.
The only argument left in defence of Trump is that he is still very early in his first year and that no President should be expected to accomplish much in just a few months. Okay, we can entertain that notion, but let's be realistic and look at the current circumstances.
Right now, Congress is on the brink of forging a spending bill which essentially removes all backing for Trump's original projects, including the southern border wall. Now, given, the bill only provides government funding until the end of September, we should expect the Republicans to roll over yet again in the name of avoiding a government shutdown? I would say CLOSE WASHINGTON DOWN. That would be a good start to really DEFUNDING and thus DRAINING THE SWAMP!
This is one area where Trump could light a firestorm. By forcing a government shutdown, a real fight for conservative national projects and spending cuts could take place. Yet, we are still struggling with the broken monstrosity of Obamacare, we have yet to see any plan for defunding Planned Parenthood, the border wall is out and military spending is slated to increase by $54 billion. We should wonder WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR LIMITED GOVERNMENT PIT BULL TRUMP PROMISED? On the foreign front, Trump has been backing off of his threats against NAFTA. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal Trump explained his decision by ADMITTING he is NOW "a nationalist and a globalist." WTF?
Trump has now also refused to label China a currency manipulator, which was an action HE PROMISED TO PURSUE. This decision COULD BE in preparation for a strike on North Korea; a war no one asked for and which America cannot possibly afford. If China remains hands-off, we should expect war with North Korea, A COMPLETELY NEEDLESS WASTE OF AMERICA TREASURE.
This kind of sabre rattling is also contrary to Trump's position on Iraq during his campaign, which was, to summarize his many remarks, a quagmire, a mess of a war that made little sense and gained America nothing. If Iraq was a mess, then what will North Korea be with its far better armed military and more ideologically dedicated soldiers? A war in North Korea would take twice as much time and capital to complete, but THAT'S THE GLOBALIST OBJECTIVE.
WHY THE ABJECT SURRENDER?
So, the question is, why has Trump flipped so completely and so quickly on is political positions since November of last year? There are 2 reasons.
First, Trump was placed in office as a means to scapegoat all conservatives, the principles of sovereignty and limited government for the disasters that should follow. Trump is in office for one reason -- to destroy conservatism for all time.
That said, Trump's support from conservatives has not been as blind and faithful as globalists might have hoped. We remain rather critical, and thankfully, ever watchful. We are not a zombie mob that can be easily exploited by some fearless leader on a white horse; unlike Obama's sycophantic army of liberal followers, we still retain principles.
This does not necessarily save us from being scapegoated by internationalist propaganda in the future. Many argue that Trump's flip-flopping negates the idea that Trump is a conservative scapegoat because "he is not acting like a conservative." These people are oblivious to human psychology.
The fact is, Trump ran on a conservative nationalist platform, and his rhetoric continues to fuel his nationalist image, even if his actions do not. The globalists will paint him as a conservative and the majority of people around the world will continue to accept this narrative because rhetoric is often more powerful than tangible results. Liberals in particular will never let go of the idea that Trump is a conservative because they desperately long for vindication that conservative principles are "evil." Every mistake Trump makes, though not conservative at all, will be blamed on conservatism and nationalism as a whole. From what I have seen so far, the only people that are rationally critical of Trump as a conservative are actual liberty minded conservatives like me.
Yes, we despise the crazed cultural Marxists of the social justice warriors, and we're concerned about the liberal population's shift towards full bore communism. Plus, we do not like Islamic extremism and won't tolerate it within our borders. But we also are not too keen on the idea of being puppets for a fake conservative government, either.
Trump flipped and betrayed his campaign promises, because the globalist scheme to co-opt the liberty movement and constitutional conservatives has failed.
There is no point in Trump continuing to play his role as a stalwart of sovereignty. We have not been won over in a way that makes us easy to manipulate, which means we might not support certain globalist initiatives like martial law in the wake of a crisis, a national federalized ID card in the name of immigration control, regime changes in Syria or North Korea, etc. We may even OPPOSE such measures.
This leads to the next reason Trump has so swiftly reversed his positions: Perhaps he and his establishment handlers no longer need to maintain the conservative sovereignty facade because a full spectrum crisis is about to take place; a crisis so consuming that the public will be completely distracted while the elites push their agenda forward and blame conservatives at the same time.
The move against North Korea may be AN ENCORE TO PLANNED DISASTER. By itself, North Korea would be a very cumbersome regional war that could bankrupt the U.S. The level of determination to increase tensions with North Korea is truly astounding. We haven't seen such senseless rhetoric from The White House since the Iraq War.
Trump's betrayals should not be taken lightly nor treated as aimless schizophrenia. While the Obama administration flipped on numerous campaign promises, they did so subtly while maintaining their lies in a strategic way for two full terms. This is not what is happening with Trump. His dramatic changes should be taken as a signal that a much greater game is afoot, with far higher stakes. It should also be treated as a sign that if a crisis is being engineered, it will be happening rather soon.
There will be ongoing arguments as to whether The White House has been hijacked or a FLIMFLAM all along. It was controlled all along. I have seen little to no resistance on the part of Trump against the establishment, only rhetoric. And rhetoric is meaningless, only actions matter.
It is exceedingly positive in a way that Trump's reversal has been so fast and so complete. It shows that conservatives and liberty champions have not been subsumed into the so called "alt-right" (a PHONY term designed to pigeonhole and demonize us all). The quiet elite failed miserably in their plans to co-opt us. That said, for every success there are consequences. It may be our refusal to "buy into" the Trump momentum and cast off our skepticism that has caused the establishment to adjust their timetable. And, when the elites do not get what they want, they tend to fall back on their tried and true tool kit of violence and disaster. In this connection, LEFTIST ACTIVISTS PREPARING FOR ARMED CONFRONTATION. This could get ugly and messy very quickly.
