The Enemy Within: Trump vs. the Deep State

Is Trump an enemy of the Deep State . . .  or is he secretly working for it?

Trump committed political heresy when he dared to point out the folly of unchecked militarism. He will pay for it. The war between the deep state and Trump began the moment he was elected.” — Chris Hedges
Our democracy is not in peril. We do not live in a democracy. The image of our democracy is in peril.
Trump’s most unforgivable sin in the eyes of the deep state is his criticism of the empire’s endless wars, even though he lacks the intellectual and organizational skills to oversee a disengagement.
The deep state committed the greatest strategic blunder in American history when it invaded and occupied Afghanistan and Iraq. Such fatal military fiascos, a feature of all late empires, are called acts of “micro-militarism.” Dying empires historically squander the last capital they have, economic, political and military, on futile, intractable and unwinnable conflicts until they collapse.
They seek in these acts of micro-militarism to recapture a former dominance and lost stature. Disaster piles on disaster. The architects of our imperial death spiral, however, are untouchable.
The clueless generals and politicians who propel the empire into expanding chaos and fiscal collapse are successful at one thing—perpetuating themselves. No one is held accountable. A servile press treats these mandarins with near-religious veneration. Generals and politicians, many of whom should have been cashiered or put on trial, are upon retirement given lucrative seats on the boards of the weapons manufacturers, for whom these wars are immensely profitable. They are called upon by a fawning press to provide analysis to the public of the mess they created. They are held up as exemplars of integrity, selfless service and patriotism.
LD: The trendy phrase “deep state” appears to be the latest euphemism for international Jewry and their elite non-Jewish collaborators in the big corporations and military-industrial complex. These include the generals, bankers, corporatists, lobbyists, intelligence chiefs, government bureaucrats, technocrats, evangelical Christians, and the fawning presstitutes of the main stream media. All these gentile sycophants of Big Jewry have one thing in common: they are all passionate  Zionists for whom the state of Israel is sacrosanct. They would rather see America go up in flames than suffer the loss of a singe acre of stolen land in Occupied Palestine. [LD]
After nearly two decades, every purported objective used to justify our wars in the Middle East has been upended.
The invasion of Afghanistan was supposed to wipe out al-Qaida. Instead, al-Qaida migrated to fill the power vacuums the deep state created in the wars in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen. The war in Afghanistan morphed into a war with the Taliban, which now controls most of the country and is threatening the corrupt regime we prop up in Kabul.
The deep state orchestrated the invasion of Iraq, which had nothing to do with the attacks of 9/11. It confidently predicted it could build a Western-style democracy and weaken Iran’s power in the region. Instead, it destroyed Iraq as a unified country, setting warring ethnic and religious factions against each other. Iran, which is closely tied to the dominant Shiite government in Baghdad, emerged even stronger.
Then there is the fiasco in Syria. The deep state armed “moderate” rebels in Syria in an effort to topple President Bashar Assad, but when it realized it could not control the jihadists—to whom it had provide some $500 million in weapons and assistance—the deep state began to bomb them and arm Kurdish rebels to fight them. These Kurds would later be betrayed by Trump.
Next was Yemen. The “war on terror” spread like a plague from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya to Yemen, which after five years of war is suffering one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters. The financial cost for this misery and death is between $5 trillion and $8 trillion. The human cost runs into hundreds of thousands of dead and wounded, shattered cities, towns and infrastructure and millions of refugees.
Trump committed political heresy when he dared to point out the folly of unchecked militarism. He will pay for it. The deep state intends to replace him with someone—perhaps Mike Pence, as morally and intellectually vacuous as Trump—who will do what he is told.

The removal of Trump from office would not threaten corporate power. It would not restore civil liberties, including our right to privacy and due process.
It would not demilitarize the police or champion the rights of the working class.
It would not impede the profits of the fossil fuel and banking industries.
It would not address the climate emergency.
It would not disrupt the warrantless surveillance of the public.
It would not end extraordinary renditions, the kidnapping of those around the globe considered to be enemies of the state.
It would not halt the assassinations by militarized drones.
It would not halt the separation of children from their parents and the warehousing of these children in filthy, overcrowded conditions.
It would not remedy the consolidation of wealth and power by the oligarchs and the further impoverishment of the citizenry.
The expansion of our prison system and of black sites throughout the world, sites where we torture, would continue, as would the gunning down of poor, unarmed citizens in urban wastelands.
Most importantly, the catastrophic foreign wars that have resulted in a series of failed states and wasted trillions of taxpayer dollars, would remain sacrosanct, enthusiastically embraced by the leaders of the two ruling parties, puppets of the deep state.
The impeachment of Trump, despite the enthusiasm of the liberal elite, is mostly cosmetic. The entire political and governmental system is corrupt. Corporate lobbyists write the laws. The courts enforce them. There is no way in the American political system to vote against the interests of Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, AT&T, Amazon, Microsoft, Walmart, Alphabet, Facebook, Apple, Exxon Mobil, Lockheed Martin, UnitedHealth Group or Northrop Grumman.
We, the American public, are spectators. An audience. Who will be seated when the game of musical chairs stops?
Will Trump be able to hold on to power?
Will Pence be the new president?
Or will the deep state elevate a political hack like Joe Biden . . .  or, God forbid, Hillary Clinton?
And what if the deep state fails?
The war between the deep state and Trump began the moment he was elected. Former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper—both now paid news cable commentators—along with former FBI head James Comey soon would accuse Trump of being a tool of Moscow. Intelligence agencies leaked salacious stories about “pee tapes” and blackmail, plus reports of “repeated contacts” with Russian intelligence. Brennan, Clapper and Comey were quickly joined by other former intelligence officials. Their attacks were then amplified by former senior military leaders.
The Russia conspiracy, after the release of the Mueller report, proved to be a dud. The deep state actors, however, were re-energized by Trump’s decision to pressure the government of Ukraine to investigate Biden. Trump, this time, seems to have given his deep state enemies enough rope to hang him.
The impeachment of Trump marks a new and frightening chapter in American politics. The deep state has shown its face. It has made a public declaration that it will not tolerate dissent, although Trump’s dissent is rhetorical and ineffectual.
The effort to impeach Trump sends an ominous message to the American left.  Its resources to destroy those on the left are nearly inexhaustible.
There are no internal or external checks on the deep state.
The deep state will further expand the social inequality that has thrust half of Americans into poverty or near poverty, strip us of our remaining civil liberties and feed the rapacious appetites of the military and the war industry.
The resources of the state will be squandered as the federal deficit balloons. The frustration and feelings of stagnation among a disempowered and neglected citizenry, which contributed to the election of Trump, will mount.
There will come a moment of reckoning, as there has during the last few days in Lebanon and Chile. Social unrest is inevitable. Any population can be pushed only so far.
Trump, in the end, is not the problem. We are.
And if the deep state fails to rid itself of Trump it will, however reluctantly, use him to carry out its dirty work.

  1. Just more “doom” and “despair”: “We will get, with or without Trump, tyranny.” Would it not be more useful to suggest something which “the good People” of present-day America (as the Declaration of Independence styled the patriots of its era) might do to forefend this calamity? Please, try to present fewer predictions of disaster, and more proposals to prevent it. If one is incapable of doing that, then silence is surely to be preferred to hopeless wailing and gnashing of teeth.

  2. I am a big admirer of lasha darkmoon.
    Trump is a gemini, as is Boris johnston, these are two people, often opposites striving for the upper hand
    Tony blairs astrologer told me that with both these men, there will be a desire to do good
    competing witha desire to be popular.When Trump said he wanted to pull out of the middle east, a cheer went up across the UK, no one here including our armed forces wants another war for israel.
    Trump knows there is neither the money or public support for more wars for the jews.
    The jews say we were promised 3 world wars, we need one more,
    Bollox to the jews they can fight this one on their own
    BTW today is remembrance sunday, we are told men gave their lives for king and country, more bollox
    they gave their lives for a criminal government, keeping the foreigners from our shores
    once the war was over, this same government started people trafficking them in

  3. Lasha;

    Whether a Pro-Trumper (patriot) or Deep State Never-Trumper, Trump is just an agent / tool like Boris Johnson or Winston Churchill, for the Khazarian Mafia ZioBanksters. The sideshow in this Hegelian Dialectic, will result in American Civil War 2 for the destruction of America into a totalitarian Police State that will cause Canada (in fragments), America and Mexico to form the continent of the North American Union. In order to achieve this America must be removed as the only Superpower.

  4. Many believed Hillary would win, after Obama a Woman president seemed their next move. and it was so even until last moments but somehow it was Trump, he seemed like an anomaly on their radar screen, Trump however knew he must serve Zionists to remain in power so he did some things no other president dared to, not even Bush declared Jerusalem as the capital of the fake Zionist state.

    And really moving out of middle east is not something the Deep State likes however they want it too, because they can no longer benefit from being in the region through US. Besides they have other plans and players for Middle East. I suspect a fake mobilizations against Israel either from Jordan and Turkey for damage control at some point to happen in order to shift the Anti-Zionist flag from Iran and its allies to new players that are in truth working with them. Now you should know princes Abdulah of Jordan’s mother ( is a British and Erdogan is probably a Dönmeh Jew (

  5. “The deep state committed the greatest strategic blunder in American history when it invaded and occupied Afghanistan and Iraq.”

    That quote is patently false from the fool Hedges who lives in middle class la la land of faux Amerikan prosperity. Lame thinking patterns of too much food and prosperity. The Neocon War of Terror was their greatest accomplishment, they pulled a New Pearl Harbor in broad daylight and force fed a false narrative of Muslims and the Christianized public lapped it up like puppies with a bowl of warm milk.

    quote “The invasion of Afghanistan was supposed to wipe out al-Qaida.”

    Nope. They seized the opium trade and killed lots of Muslims plus made bank with another war. Afghanistan is another Vietnam cash cow for the defense industry, a war without end.

    quote “The deep state orchestrated the invasion of Iraq, which had nothing to do with the attacks of 9/11. It confidently predicted it could build a Western-style democracy and weaken Iran’s power in the region. Instead, it destroyed Iraq as a unified country, setting warring ethnic and religious factions against each other. ”

    The real goals of destabilization and genocide of Arabs is not mentioned by Hedges. This man is either incredibly naive or intentionally misleading his audience with limp-wristed pussified lukewarm arguments of what is really going on.

    Chris Hedges uses the same feeble language as Paul Craig Roberts, maybe it a disease they catch living in the District of Criminals. Are they so smart and so polite that they are brain dead to the Jewish – Israeli lobby – Zionist – PNAC – AIPAC problem?

    quote “Will Trump be able to hold on to power? Will Pence be the new president?”

    Jim Stone says Trump might of been poisoned by Polonium. It’s believable because they want him gone, he has not obeyed his Jewish masters, he betrayed Bibi. So if Trump dies, resigns, gets impeached and removed then little Mikey Pence can get his Christian war on Iran. A true believer in the Bible and feverish end times lunatic, he has no problem launching waves of bombers on any or all ragtops – and he said so at the most recent West Point graduation speech.

    Rothschild owners are not interested in any uppity free thinking from their whores, like Trump who is resisting war. They set up Trump several times to get his bombing runs going on Iran, but fearful playboy Trump has not taken the bait, so here’s the deal Trump is out. I am telling you they will do anything to get rid of him, crash the markets, nuke a city, sink a carrier, or whatever. Trump will be drummed right out of office, you wait and see.

    Removal of Trump will not change the power structure in any way. The Fed and military industrial complex – mocking bird media – hollywood holohoax machine are a permanent part of the mind control – false flag – never ending – war matrix of deception and big pharma – chem trail – death machine. Fool Trump was no Napoleon, he did not seize the reigns of power and purge the nation of traitors with mass arrests and firing squads.

    Egoist narcissistic Trump thought he could work with and fool his Jewish handlers, I will not be surprised in the least if he pays with his life. They are playing hard ball while Trump is playing sissy softball. He has lost, he will be removed almost for sure, it will be a miracle if Trump even makes it to the 2020 election, which will almost for sure will also include Hillary.

    So what is the moral of the FAILED Trump Presidency? Pussified rich man Trump was no real nationalist leader, he was no radical whip cracking reformer, no firebrand podium pounder, no visionary with a plan, no great military commander, no white savior, no wall builder, no internet or tech giant reformer. Trump was no Napoleon, no Chavez, no Hitler, no Il Duce, no Franco, and no Ghaddafi. Trump was a fraud.

    he made fools of white people and patriots

    All Trump was, was a big blowhard pussy and will be soon forgotten as things get very much worse and the Amerikan Republic spirals into the Zionist grave. And I have a prediction – no white people are going into the streets (besides the phony Alex Jones and his bullhorn) when the orange clown is led to the mental asylum a white straight jacket.

  6. I had to read the original article to figure out and make sure who said:

    “It would not address the climate emergency.”


    It was Chris Hedges. He is an idiot’s idiot if he thinks climate change is an emergency. The fact that the mainstream Jewish media pushes climate change should be a clue that it is false, but apparently former Christian minister Chris Hedges can’t figure it out.

    wikipedia – “Christopher Lynn Hedges is an American journalist, Presbyterian minister, and visiting Princeton University lecturer. ”

    So now we know why this prolific author never mentions the Jews. His Bible induced gullibility to believe unproved things is in my opinion why he fell for the global warming / climate change hoax.

    There is a chem trail spraying geo-engineering catastrophe, but no man made CO2 climate emergency, and now I think the former is using the later for cover, see this:

    I bet that Chris Hedges is a righteous idiot about his climate change view because it is the new sin:

    I am going to tell you something you’ve never heard before: humans evolved/created in an ice age, and the rest of human history will be in this ice age, and the human specie will go extinct before this ice age ends.

  7. I could not have said it better myself: the sheeple are the problem. The sheeple are too addicted to the Bread and Circuses to keep them busy. Trump is just the latest actor in the role of President. Sheeple were fooled by Obama (Barry Sortoro, homersexual) because as a black man , he spoke what sheeple wanted to hear – Hope and Change. Then as President he ended up carrying out George Bush II and his policies, so we got No Hope and No Change. Yet Obamer is still very popular. Why? The sheeple have not caught on to the game. Then we got Trump. Trump, a supposedly successful businessman that was not a career politician and spoke the language of the average middle class American that was underemployed or unemployed. Trump spoke as an outsider who wanted to apply business sense to government compared to Hillary who was scary and represented the establishment. Trump won in 2016 to everyone’s surprise except the common sheeple. The Deep State and all its tools, the Military, the MSM, the Democrats and Big Tech, all turned against him to try and remove him from Office. Trump had 1 leak a day for the first 180 days in power. Then Eric Ciaramella, was fired and the leaks stopped. Trump finds it had to do anything like his campaign promises when he is alone and can not find people outside of politics or the Deep State to implement his policies. Even the Bureaucrats / Policy wonks are against him. Trump can only put pressure on The FED (Federal Reserve) to lower rates to show the sheeple that the FED is the problem as one of the problems in Washington DC. Next Trump must now rely on 4 men: AG William Barr, DOJ attorney Durham, IG ( Intelligence Inspector General) Horowitz, and Trump’s attorney Rudy Guillani. These 4 men must dig up the dirt and begin prosecutions, indictments against the guilty people in the Obamer administration on down. This includes Hillary Clinton and even Robert Mueller. The rest of the people, I am sure the awake and knowledgeable readers from here, know who they are. If you do not read The Epoch Times, in print or online, to find out. Forget the MSM to name the names. So, depending upon what those 4 men do will tell the sheeple where Trump will be in 2020 – still President or out of Office with Mike Pence / Hillary in charge. Maybe since Mueller botched the investigation, ie. yes people did bad things but the likelihood of conviction is in reasonable doubt, gives you a clue. Remember also that Mueller and Rudy Guillani covered up parts of 911. Bill Barr also covered up things in the past and is now making into law Pre-crime (Minority Report) legislation that makes all even remotely mentally ill or Conspiracy theorist types, bound for jail or FEMA concentration camp. So, we have to wait and see, but do not hold your breath. Now that we know how Trump got elected in 2016 and the DEEP State machinations to remove him, where does that place Trump? The answer is again, trump is an actor to dupe the sheeple using new boobles in the Bread and Cicuses game of distraction. Trump’s presidency is the Hegelian dialectic in play again. Trump has caused 2 camps to form: the PRO-Trumper Patriots of Trump groupies, Zionist and Evangelical Christians, employed Hispanics and Blacks VS. NEVER-Trumper Deep Staters, Bureaucrats, the MSM, Leftist Liberals and Trump-haters. Thus no matter what the outcome of trump’s impeachment or even his assassination, America will be in Civil War II, 21st century style. Thus no matter what, the weakest Amerika and a stronger Police State and NWO is coming near you sheeple. Trump though seeming like a hero, is nothing more than a con to dupe the sheeple into greater slavery. Wow, those Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, are the greatest ZioBankster playbook in history. Unfortunately those games in the playbook go back to the times of the Eqyptians and Babylonians. As in the Bible: there is nothing new under the Sun, it has all been done before. Trump will have fulfilled his role on the theatre stage and remain part of the 1%ers. ZioBankster illuminati puppet that he is, Amerika will end up as part of the North Amerikan Union with fractured Canada and Mexico for the NWO or JEW World Order. No matter what your opinion of Trump, he will have done his job. PS: Even the sheeple rising up in protest of the NWO in all the different countries throughout the world, is part of the plan. The DIVIDE and CONQUOR/RULE plan. You sheeple should learn to play chess like Mr. Spock on Star Trek not checkers. The NWO can and will be defeated with TRUTH and doing the opposite of what their plans call for. So be a CONTRARIAN and follow the precepts of the Bible and Jesus will destroy the NWO. read the Bible, book of revelation, chapters 17 – 22. God’s victory is certain, for he knows the beginning from the end.

  8. Israel is till pushing to get the USA to start w w 3
    america should do the right thing and bob israel
    see below

  9. Many uninformed people think that President Trump is in charge of the US government. He is not. And he would be assassinated if he were.
    Donald Trump has now demonstrated that he is nothing more than an inarticulate sideshow clown and a counterfeit medieval medicine man offering cheap miracle and ILLUSIONARY fixes for America’s problems here and abroad. He is incapable of humility, tact or withholding self-praise. This President has demonstrated beyond doubt that he is simply a Jew-owned puppet.
    And we ALL know by now that Trump is no genius, certainly not an adult and without a doubt, a sociopath. There is no controversy in any of this.
    This is another “mystery man,” a great leader, great athlete, a human “sex-machine” who hides behind the most comprehensive press management empire imaginable, one traced entirely to the Israel lobby and one that uses “muscle,” not just from crackpot lawyers but mobsters who all are known Israeli intelligence assets.
    They exist around Trump because he is a brand, a pure facade, and absolutely everything about him is not only false, but intended to be false from the beginning.
    Trump’s wasn’t born, he was “scripted.”
    Donald Trump is really Donald Drumpf, and his real name reveals some of the true secrets behind his character. Trump appears not even to be his family’s legal name.
    Donald’s great-grandparents, Christian Johannes Drumpf and Katherina Kober, had sons, Christian Drumpf and Christ Chirst.[16] Christian was Sleazy Freddy’s father. By his name, Christ Christ, may had converted to Judaism. Nevertheless, Donald’s great-grandmother, Kathernia Kober, appears to have been Jewish.
    What we know is that the surname Kober is German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from a derivative of the personal name Jakob or Yakov. German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from German Kober “basket“,
    Recently Donald Trump released a Chanukah greeting along with a message of solidarity for his “Jewish brothers and sisters”. He tweeted out a wish for a “happy and healthy eight nights” along with a formal message on behalf of himself and the First Lady, Melania – who aint no lady!
    He said: “Chanukah is a time for Jewish families around the world to come together around the lighting of the menorah and celebrate the miracles of the past and promises of the future. Melania and I wish all of our Jewish brothers and sisters celebrating this meaningful holiday a happy and healthy eight nights in the company of those they love.” He went on to explain the Chanukah story, concluding that he was “proud to stand with the Jewish people who shine as a light to all nations. We also stand with the people of Israel, the Jewish State, which has itself a miraculous history of . . . overcoming the greatest of odds. ”
    As with most who desire to be rich, Donald Drumpf has made his pact with the DEVIL a long time ago and he doesn’t mind showing you who his father is and his Jewish kin are who now totally dominate the White House. In fact it is now becoming crystal clear that “democracy” is simply an auction awarded to the highest bidder and Trump is doing Jewry’s bidding straight from the Oval Office.
    In 1987 Donald Trump purchased 93% of Resorts International, a CIA front founded by Crown Agents Allen Dulles and David Rockefeller as the Mary Carter Paint Company in the 1950’s. A year later Trump bought the Atlantic City, NJ Taj Mahal Casino from Resorts International, then began buying up other properties on the Atlantic City boardwalk.
    Soon Trump was tapped out and couldn’t make his debt payments.
    Enter Wilbur Ross, billionaire bond trader portrayed by the Illuminati financial media as an “independent investor”. In fact, in 1992 Ross was heading Rothschild Inc.’s bankruptcy advising team, which represented bondholders who were threatening to foreclose on Donald’s house of cards.
    Ross saw how Trump had the ability to sway masses of people, something certainly not missed by his bosses at Rothschild. So he struck a sweetheart bankruptcy deal for Trump, where he would relinquish a 50% stake in his Atlantic City, NJ Taj Mahal casino in return for better debt terms and a Presidency to be named later.
    Rothschild and their City of London Jewish partners in crime, not only got a new East Coast money laundering center in Atlantic City. They now had their straw man Trump by the balls.
    AIPAC is the monied Deep State and Trump is one of their many swamp creatures that are playing his blinded Christian Zionist supporters better than Obama, the Bush’s, the Clintons could do combined. He is truly the perfect Zionist operative.
    What we now get with Trump is cultural division, unyielding debt, more war, a police state, and to be called antisemitic when we point out who is really pulling the strings in the Deep State of Washington Politics.
    Trump has proven himself to be the ultimate Judas goat betrayer. Christians need to wake up to the fact that the devil, not God is running the show on this planet and that includes the Rothschild State of Israel. The second Temple was called Herod’s Temple, and Jesus cursed it and predicted its collapse, the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem will undoubtedly be called the Rothschild Temple once built, it doesn’t take a genius to see where all this Trump madness is headed.
    The sad thing is that most Americans have slowly but surely become a dumbed down and largely clueless people that have NO awareness of the HUGE risk that the criminally insane government in Washington is taking with their lives.

  10. The comments are all very informative and probably very accurate regarding Trump who likely at one time was the great-white hope of people like Stormin Norman, Yukon Jack and Ray N. So all eyes again will be on the US Presidential election, and the brainwashed masses will once-again have to decide on the lesser of evils provided to them by their puppet master trillionaires. Perhaps if it is a race between Bloomberg and Trump, the Rothschild’s and the Zionists will not care who wins because each will have to pledge support to Israel and condemn Russia.

    However, if there is a way to change anything then what do the critics on this site want? What is there solution for a better world? They can say that the US and Jews should not do, but what about other nations and other movements? Is the US election still the only show in town? Are not more nations pulling away from Western bankster control? Is the US backing of a UN-based (Rothschild) One World Government relevant or a good thing for the US or for the world? Perhaps if the US resists their plan cannot get off the ground and Jacob Rothschild will not have his World Bank and world Fed for an even larger currency protection racket than the petrodollar one. Perhaps, attacking Iran is no longer feasible and the real issue is a renewed globalist surge?

  11. Summoned up in one sentence, It’s 3 card Monte and you know not your playing the game.

  12. This sums it up for those with eyes to see and ears to hear.

    “You Damn Well Knew I Was A Snake!” Donald Trump Reads Snake Poem At New York Rally

    The leadership in the western world has a consistent character flaw that keeps them together.
    Is There Anything to a Lawsuit Accusing Donald Trump of Raping a 13-Year-Old Girl with Bill Clinton’s Billionaire Sex Buddy?
    “Apollyon Rising”

  13. Brandon Smith provides a brilliant analysis of how Trump is really a Judas goat setting up the conservative (Christians and patriots) for a great fall. Is Hillary being set up to ride in a white horse when Trump is impeached and run out of town? Hillary ushers in socialism and the conservatives are completely discredited. Think 1929 scenario, Trump is Hoover, he and his followers take the fall while they push the USA into full socialism.

    “Trump is in the position he is in for a reason. Trump is a useful pawn in a number of ways as long as his influence over conservatives remains strong and his position can be exploited to maximum effect. For example, in my most likely scenario, a market crash swiftly follows the current plunge in fundamentals before the 2020 election. This essentially ensures Trump’s defeat in November, while his conservative supporters and conservative principles in general take the blame for the disaster. However, what if the elites are seeking to add even more chaos to the cauldron?

    If we are stupid enough to fight a war over Trump, this will lead to some detrimental results. Conservatives, though feeling justified in their actions, will look like villains, fighting to protect a leader that destroyed the US economy causing untold public suffering, as well as a leader that most of the world will see as personally corrupt. Trump is not a resilient long term inspiration for a rebellion, he’s not even a good short term inspiration.

    A civil war that does not seek to target the globalists as the root problem could be easily molded by the globalists into a scapegoat for whatever calamity they desire. An economic crash under Trump would attach a lot of peripheral blame to conservatives. But, an economic crash and a civil war over Trump’s impeachment would attach ALL the blame to conservatives. Conservatives become the bad guys of the age, the people that almost ended the world, the people that future generations will be taught to despise as examples of the “evils of nationalism and populism”.

    Hillary said today that she is under enormous pressure to run and ” “Well, you know, I never say never to anything,” Clinton said. “I think all the time of what kind of president I would have been and what I would have done differently and what I think it would have meant to our country and the world. So of course I think about it. I think about it all the time.””

    Hillary having long served in or around government will prove to be exceedingly competent while El Trumpo the Orange Clown is a dunce and unqualified to run a taco stand.

    Just sayin’ people, it is almost obvious the play in motion here. Trump’s fate rests on the stock market – if it goes up or sideways then he gets re-elected. If it goes down he won’t, if it crashes like 1929 he won’t even get to the election.
