There’s been a two-year glob­al­ist war on Pres­i­dent Trump

Westside Eagle-Observer - - OPINION - By Harold Pease, Ph.D.

The most vi­cious elec­tions in our history were that of Jef­fer­son in 1800, Lin­coln in 1860, Lyn­don John­son in 1964 and Ron­ald Rea­gan in 1980, but none of these were more con­tentious than that of Don­ald Trump in 2016. Trump was op­posed by both po­lit­i­cal par­ties. “Never Trumpers” (mostly Repub­li­cans) did not re­sort to street ri­ots, but “Not my Pres­i­dent” (mostly Democrats) did fol­low­ing his elec­tion in many cities through­out the land.

In 2016, Most Amer­i­cans knew that some­thing was wrong — re­ally wrong. In­de­pen­dents, those re­fus­ing to align Demo­crat or Repub­li­can, were about 40 per­cent — stronger than ei­ther party. Most Amer­i­cans felt lied to by both par­ties and the me­dia. Most Repub­li­cans felt be­trayed when they elected politi­cians to re­store the Con­sti­tu­tion and the econ­omy and these same politi­cians ap­peared to join the other side as soon as they ar­rived in Wash­ing­ton D.C. Many had won­dered the value of their vote out­side “the lesser of two evils” phi­los­o­phy.

En­ter Don­ald Trump, who mostly said what oth­ers were afraid to say, be­gin­ning with il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion. Our Mex­i­can friends have in­deed in­vaded our coun­try and taken, not just the jobs Amer­i­cans did not want, but the ones they did want, as well. They en­tered every field, and their il­le­gal chil­dren, be­ing bilin­gual, are now fa­vored in most other jobs. When politi­cians say they will build a fence to help pre­serve Amer­i­can jobs, al­most no one be­lieved them. Trump was a builder, build­ing mag­nif­i­cent struc­tures, and was be­lieved.

Sim­ply put, the me­dia, the es­tab­lish­ment and the po­lit­i­cal par­ties had lost their cred­i­bil­ity. The more the es­tab­lish­ment or me­dia ganged-up on Trump, the more his fol­low­ing grew. He even iden­ti­fied the es­tab­lish­ment me­dia as “fake news.” His bravado was some­what re­fresh­ing from the Bush’s, Clin­ton’s, Boehner’s and McCon­nell’s “no real change” rhetoric.

The es­tab­lish­ment op­po­si­tion to Trump cer­ti­fied an­other fac­tor in his fa­vor. He was not one of them. He would not be con­trolled by them, as were his pre­de­ces­sors from both par­ties. Nor did any spe­cial in­ter­est group con­trol him. This may have been the first time in 120 years that this was so. Only the Con­sti­tu­tion should guide and re­strain him — not the mon­eyed es­tab­lish­ment.

An­other fac­tor in his fa­vor, also not men­tioned by the press, was that most Amer­i­cans be­lieved that the econ­omy was on a crash course. No coun­try can long en­dure when more money is spent than taken in. No can­di­date un­der­stood the econ­omy

bet­ter than Trump, hav­ing worked suc­cess­fully with it for decades. He had the most in­cen­tive to get it back to a sound base more than any other can­di­date, or even you or I — we lose hun­dreds when it blows, he loses bil­lions.

The Trump phe­nom­e­non was es­sen­tially a re­bel­lion against the es­tab­lish­ment by a pop­u­la­tion tired of be­ing ma­nip­u­lated every four years into stay­ing on the road to bank­ruptcy with the same failed in­ter­na­tion­al­ist for­eign pol­icy pre­sented by es­tab­lish­ment can­di­dates of both par­ties.

The es­tab­lish­ment me­dia at­tempted to show can­di­date Don­ald Trump as a joke — cer­tainly not a se­ri­ous can­di­date, not a real con­ser­va­tive, a flipflop­per on the is­sues, an­ti­women, anti-im­mi­gra­tion, in­sult­ing to ev­ery­one, least likely to beat Hil­lary Clin­ton, only at­trac­tive to white males and not in touch with re­al­ity and more.

What was very dif­fer­ent from pre­vi­ous bru­tal elec­tions where such rhetoric ended af­ter the elec­tion, was that, for Trump, it never ended — in­deed it am­pli­fied his first two years in the White House. Op­po­nent sym­pa­thiz­ers, largely fi­nanced by CFR mem­ber Ge­orge Sores, took to the streets be­fore the in­au­gu­ra­tion with signs, “Not my pres­i­dent,” while Repub­li­can op­po­nents joined the “Never Trump” move­ment.

The in­tel­li­gence com­mu­nity with Obama Ad­min­is­tra­tion holdovers, now re­ferred to as the Deep State, tar­geted a duly-elected pres­i­dent with what is now known as the “Russia Hoax.” Find­ing no ev­i­dence of Russia/Trump col­lu­sion af­ter a two-year Spe­cial Coun­cil Mueller probe; all in an ef­fort to im­peach their hated pres­i­dent as a traitor. CFR mem­ber and Obama CIA direc­tor, John Bren­non, had called Trump a traitor. This while com­pletely ig­nor­ing, even cov­er­ing up, a real Rus­sian/Clin­ton col­lu­sion story and the Rus­sian Ura­nium One deal giv­ing Russia 20 per­cent of Amer­ica’s ura­nium and prof­it­ing the Clin­tons by mil­lions — this, with the bleach-bit­ted 35,000 Hil­lary Clin­ton emails so at­test­ing to this deal, many of which were clas­si­fied doc­u­ments sent over her un­se­cured server.

While the Deep State fab­ri­cated col­lu­sion was on­go­ing, the es­tab­lish­ment press worked at get­ting Trump Ad­min­is­tra­tion per­son­nel to turn on their boss from within, through anony­mous sources show­ing Trump un­fit for of­fice. They hoped to “prove” in­com­pe­tence and thus ex­er­cise the 25th Amend­ment to re­move him from of­fice. But the Trump staff held firm.

Ex­cept­ing Lin­coln, no pres­i­dent should fear an as­sas­si­na­tion at­tempt more than Trump, and many still fear that end; he is so hated by the es­tab­lish­ment. Why? Be­cause for over a hun­dred years, since Wil­liam McKin­ley, they, with the help of the me­dia that they came to largely own, have pro­pelled into power politi­cians sym­pa­thetic to their glob­al­ist in­ter­ests in both par­ties so that their in­ter­ests got at­ten­tion no mat­ter which of their two po­lit­i­cal par­ties, Demo­crat or Repub­li­can, got elected. Con­trol of for­eign pol­icy was never out of their hands. They want “their” White House back re­gard­less of what they have to do to ob­tain it.
