Not since the bloody War Between the
States has there been such division.
The good news here is that for the new
paradigms to grow, they must shed first
the old. So much has changed and the old
politics of the past is dying, or at
least gasping it’s last, and the new politics
has been born alive. But there are
many post abortionist, who while they could not kill
it in the womb, now wait slavering
outside the recuperation room to complete their mission.
Like him or loathe him, Donald Trump has
shaken the world up more than any other
presidential figure since Ronald Reagan.
His campaign was like no other. He proved
that campaign politics had stealthily
changed without any of the establishment
media or pundits really taking note of
it. He came in under their radar, and in
spite of being out spent perhaps eight to
one (depending on how you count) he won
the heart of America in an electoral landslide.
The forces arrayed against him were formidable.
Going from the top down, there was what
many call the “New World Order” a
collection of financiers and
international banks and government
institutions that essentially want a one
world government with themselves and
their organizations and families in
perpetual and total control over all humanity.
The minions in industry and government
all fell in line as well. From the
military industrial complex to Wall
Street, to the Tech Industry and the
Internet commerce giants, they all filled the
coffers of Hillary Rodham Clinton to overflowing.
The corporate media all lined up against
Trump as well, like good little minions.
Special interests and bureaucrats by the
millions also fell into the ranks and
they were as passionate in their
opposition to Trump as they were
unenthusiastic for Hillary.
Their reasoning was obvious. Donald Trump
was a potential threat to anyone in
Government. Waste and inefficiency were
targets, and the incredible spending of
the Federal Government provided an
excellent living for what uncharitably
could be called parasites, and charitably
be called “public servants”.
The battle was on, and is still on.
There hasn’t even been a Christmas Truce,
or anything similar.
The amount of people receiving Federal
Money in one form or another is around
47% according to Mit Romney in 2012. Many
of them have a personal stake in
government spending and waste.
Then of course there is minority
pandering and race baiting, and class
warfare, all used unceasingly against
Trump. Oh, and let’s not forget gender warfare.
But these venerable and perennial tactics
of Democrats and Progressives may have
backfired. White voters were turned off en mass.
The aforementioned array of enemies
perceive Donald Trump as an existential
threat to themselves, their livelihoods,
their status and power, their belief system and almost literally,
everything they hold dear.
Also, at the risk of diving into
speculation and amateur psychology, there
could be another reason that the left
side of the American electorate opposes
Donald Trump with such vehemence: He is
not only (to them) a despised white man,
but also a despicable man’s man white
man. So much evil layered over evil. By
the same token this fact could be part of
the devotion and almost worship that
another part of the electorate feels for him.
Here we go into a more mystical tangent:
There is an innate antipathy and rivalry
in the animal world among different
species: such as hyenas versus lions,
dogs versus cats, birds against snakes
etc. Political people are much more than
animals, but we are all animals as well.
Many times we act just like them without
even recognizing the fact.
So this political civil war starting in
2016 and still ongoing, even intensifying
seems horribly fated to endure for a good
while. We can’t really avert our eyes.
It’s indubitably a massive train wreck of
award winning status.
The current American Political Civil War
includes other sub-conflicts within it’s
purview. The Border War with Mexico will
in all likelihood work out. The new Trump
Administration no longer will let the
U.S. serve as an escape valve for the
Mexican government to use to maintain
it’s ineptitude, corruption, cronyism and
criminality. The rot of one party rule,
official impunity, monopolistic practices
and theft will collapse without the
safety valve of remittances, emigration,
and the exploitation of the American
worker under NAFTA and the transmutation of formerly high paying
American jobs to low wage Mexican employment.
Mexico can be it’s own nation and not
just a satellite of the United States, if
it wants to. It is up to the Mexican
people. Sadly, when speaking to Mexicans,
one is left with the impression that they
have given up all hope. They believe that all
new politicians will be just as rat like
as the old ones. And there is much to
justify this belief. However, without
hope there is no chance of belief, without
belief there is no action, and without
action there is no change.
So really there is no choice but to act.
So in addition to the American Political
Civil War there is a subset of Mexican
and American Political War that could be
starting up. The people of Mexico and the
United States don’t need conflict…What
they need is co-ordination and co-
operation. Illegal immigration to the
United States is a net zero when Mexican
repatriation is factored in. The people that are crossing over are Central
Americans as well as people from all across the world. The most cost
effective solution is not a wall on the U.S. southern border, but instead a
bounty paid to Mexico for keeping aliens out of Mexico and thus out of the
United States. We’re talking here about co-ordination and co-operation.
Mexico has a 600 mile border with Guatamela as compared to the 2,000
mile border it has with the United States. That is where the wall should be.
President Trump and the people in his administration are some of the
smartest and toughest people in the world. They will come to this
conclusion eventually. But politics makes idiots of us all.
So we will see.
If all goes according to plan and the United States economy starts hitting
on all eight cylinders again and then the overdrive kicks in, we are going to
need Mexican and other imported workers in the worst way. It all could be
arranged to everyone’s benefit, but with the climate of mutual
demonization and political warfare things remain doubtful.
We could go on into more detail, and hopefully we will.
Of course the overriding conflict of the moment is globalism versus
This subject could fill many a column indeed.
