Part VIII: Neutralizing Trump
Basically, there are three options to neutralize Trump.
- Force him to support the establishment / globalist line.
- Smear him and then impeach or force resignation.
There are no other options. John F. Kennedy refused to play along so the CIA murdered him. Why not, he was going to dismantle the CIA along with neutering the Federal Reserve system. He wrote his own death warrant but at least he went out holding his ground against the Elite!
Why can We, The People rely on Trump to Make America Great Again? Why trust him more so than an establishment politician? The answer lies in attempting to understand why he ran in the first place.
Three months before the election, Lt. Col. Tom Kratman (ret.) observed:
Here’s one thing, though; while the Clintons are in politics for the graft and the girls – yes, I suspect both for both of them – selling influence, peddling pardons, soliciting and accepting gifts from foreign entities that no one could call our friends, Trump has all the money he needs and doesn’t have a lot of trouble acquiring trophy wives and girlfriends infinitely better looking than, say, Monica Lewinsky and surely close matches to Elizabeth Ward Gracen.
In other words, when President Trump leaves the White House, the china and furniture will likely remain where it’s supposed to be.
And then there’s what I think is the most important thing, the answer to the question of why Trump is even running. To me, it’s obvious: He doesn’t need graft or girls; he wants a better place in the history books than the one he’s earned so far as “slumlord to the elite.” He wants to earn that better place. This will tend to make him controllable, to make him at least try to keep his campaign promises in a way we haven’t seen since Reagan and defeating the Soviet Union. I expect that wall on our Southern border to go up. I expect him to repudiate the globalist “Free trade” agreements that have allowed the world’s piratical and parasitic “elite” to loot us, Russia, Europe, everyone not of their little class. I expect some bureaucracy trimming. Why? Because he’s such a great guy? No, because he wants that place in the history books.
Conversely, I suspect Hillary intends to, and is sure she can, dictate what the history books will be allowed to say.
A similar observation was made at HeatStreet back in April during the primaries:
He is enduring this relentless, bipartisan assault because the ruling party knows he has chosen the American people over them.
Ask yourself this: why did Donald Trump run for president in the first place? I believe that the real reason is that he, like you, is deeply concerned about the current state of the United States of America, and he, like you, fears for its future.
If you cannot bring yourself to trust in Trump’s words, then you can safely trust in his vanity. It is true, of course, that every recent president has betrayed his supporters: George H.W. Bush raised taxes, Bill Clinton had sex with that woman, George W. Bush embraced an arrogant foreign policy, and Barack Obama has waged war from Syria to Ukraine. Will not Donald Trump do the same?
It is possible, but unlikely. Donald Trump loves to be loved by the American people. And it defies everything we know about human nature to believe that he will throw away that intoxicating populist love in favor of the approval of an anti-nationalist elite whose affections he has already rejected.
I’ve also heard it put as: if you can’t trust in the vanity of a man who puts his name in giant gold letters over everything he owns, then what can you trust?
How are the predictions turning out? One journalist got to observe thanks to an inside tip on an event the press weren’t invited to. Here’s a quote that typifies the whole story (definitely go read the rest):
8:45 PM: Trump is served his entree. According to a waiter, who wished to remain anonymous:
“The President ordered a well-done steak. An aged New York strip. He ate it with catsup as he always does. The sides and appetizers on the table were shared. Three jumbo shrimp cocktails were delivered before the meal. At one point, the President looked at his watch and remarked ”They are filming ‘Saturday Night Live’ right now. Can’t wait to see what they are gonna do to me this week.“ It was hard to serve him because he is so funny and relaxed, it makes you laugh.”
Trump talks jovially with his guests for the next two hours. His iconic hand motions fill the space as dinner is served.
9:31 PM: Tillerson and his wife cross the restaurant and enter the Secret Service barrier of Trump’s table. The Secretary of State makes small talk with Nigel Farage and the Trump family. The Tillersons say their goodnights to the party and leave the steakhouse to cheers and handshakes from other guests. I am told by restaurant staff that Trump picked up their tab for dinner.
If this is truly the character of Donald Trump, then it is extremely unlikely that he would back down and dance according to the globalist tune. That only leaves options for removal: smear and impeach him, or else assassinate him.
Smearing him is unlikely. The mainstream media has been giving it their very best since he entered the primaries. Nothing sticks to him. He might as well be called Teflon Trump.
One of their best shots went down in infamy as “PeeGate” (InfoWars has a good summary).
Here’s the guy who couldn’t wait to bring down his party’s presidential victory:
So, can the establishment dig up some dirt on Trump to get him impeached or force him to resign? With all the data the NSA and CIA have been collecting, if it exists it would have been used by now. If the establishment and media are so desperate to smear Trump that now they are jumping on fake stories like PeeGate, then they are truly desperate and have already exhausted any better leverage they had.
Pence responded Tuesday by labeling the comments “absurd” and “frankly offensive” during a discussion with radio host Laura Ingraham.
“I would find all of that dialogue to be absurd and frankly offensive,” Pence said. “It is the greatest honor of my life to serve shoulder-to-shoulder with the 45th President of the United States.”
Now, if Pence is being honest, then he would not support an impeachment. This would mean assassination is the only other alternative.
Additionally, since so many Americans see Trump as “their” man, they would not tolerate impeachment either unless it were for the most egregious betrayal. Look at how Bill Clinton skated through his impeachment, and how Obama could not even be touched by impeachment. To think that heartland working America would sit by and accept impeachment of Donald Trump is likely to kick off civil war.
On the other hand, if Pence is lying and would back an impeachment because he’s on board with the establishment, removal of Trump still ignite a civil war amongst Americans who are sick of progressive neighbors telling them how to live; neighbors who celebrate lawlessness when Democrats do it, but come down hard on the slightest deviation of conservatives.
Pence: LBJ in waiting?
Is Pence an establishment pawn or the bold fighter the conservative media currently makes him out to be. I’ll answer it with two complaints from a successful but staunch biblical pastor in Indiana, writing prior to Pence’s nomination.
In 2014, he touched on Pence’s failures to protect parental authority by working to expand mandatory public schooling:
Take the administration of Governor Mike Pence here in Indiana, for instance. Gov. Pence could be using his Republican majority to legislate greater protections for parental control of the education of their children. Instead, this good Christian man is working to bring more of our state’s children under government control. Right now he’s spending his political capital in an effort to expand public education to pre-Kindergarten children. Yet this will only further facilitate parents’ abandonment of their children. Thus grows the control of the state over the Christian home and family.
In early 2015, on a different issue, he wrote a public letter to then-Governor Pence:
Dear Governor Pence,
I’m so sorry to see you capitulate to the lies and bullying of wicked men. None of your actions as governor have made clearer who you really are than your calling for and signing this new “clarification” to the RFRA bill.
What you’ve done is simply confirm to the wicked that they can shout loud enough and bully hard enough and they will get their way. You made it even harder for the next governor to pass just and righteous laws. You’ve demoralized those who care about freedom. You’ve thrown the majority who believe in liberty under the bus. What you’ve done is lost my confidence, not to mention my vote.
What we need is men in office who are willing to do what is right even when it’s hard. Up until now I had a hope that was you.
Two days earlier, he highlighted a video showing the hypocrisy (no progressive complaints about Muslim bakeries refusing to cater to gay weddings) that men like Pence were signing on to:
The last two weeks have been disastrous for any future political aspirations of Indiana Governor Mike Pence. In fact, some are wondering if he’ll even be able to get reelected?
Meanwhile, here’s a short video lampooning the hypocrisy of Tim Cook and his fellow homosexualists who attacked our RFRA legislation. It also does a good job showing the Christian faithlessness of our state’s legislators and their Republican Governor throwing in the towel and appeasing the homosexualists on Maundy Thursday, the very day when, from fear, our Lord’s Disciples deserted Him.
Pence looks like an establishment politician currently enjoying serving alongside a man who possesses a spine. Maybe he’ll fight to keep things that way, or maybe he’ll play with the establishment to get a better seat. Either way, he does not have the lightning-rod charisma that Trump has with the American people, and removal of Trump whether Pence plays along or not will be the final straw for many Americans.
