In our last article, “The Left’s Last Stand to Defeat The Great American Experiment In Freedom and Equality” https://wp.me/pY51c-1qV, we postulated that:
“The only way the left can overcome the American Constitutional Republic is by destroying the fabric of its foundation. In other words, destroy its base of law and order through division, class hatred, race hatred and ultimately anarchy. Once the foundational pillars are gone, the globalist left can come in and the people will acquiesce to the rule of this oligarchy in order to restore some semblance of law and order. “
While we stand by this statement, we also believe that the Political and Media arm of the leftist movement has passed the center of gravity in inciting insurrection and are now unable to control the deep dive of the followers of the left into the abyss of anarchy! In other words, the Political and Media arms of the left have been so successful in demonizing President Trump that the sheer inertia of the leftist anarchy movement may drive it to a coup d’état or a cultural/political revolution. Sound far fetched, this word has been used lately in almost a dozen articles printed in leftist publications and parroted on cable channels.
Coup d’état versus a Revolution: You may have noticed that I used both the word coup d’état and revolution. They are different phenomena with quite different outcomes. A coup d’état is like a revolution in that they can be driven by a popular uprising, but a coup is usually enacted by a few individuals A coup d’état is usually followed by military rule, at least in the interim. It is a change in leadership and not necessarily a cultural and political change. Existing structures and governing apparatus remain under different leadership. A revolution is usually accomplished by an overwhelming number of people with the goal to fundamentally change the structure of the nation as well as its leadership. Think of a revolution as throwing the baby out with the bath water!
The Two Donald Trump’s: Many Americans only knew the Donald Trump who was the larger than life New York sky scraper builder and part of the New York social elite. His television show, “The Apprentice”, made him a household name and arguably one of the most recognizable characters in the World. What many Americans did not know, was that this larger than life character had very specific, principled views on foreign policy, economics, taxation, government, the use of the military, and every other aspect of the role of the US in the world in the current century. Donald Trump wrote several books that chronicled his beliefs in black and white and the Left certainly knew and understood who Donald Trump was, his views, and his absolute threat to their ideology and more importantly, their 100 year to war to defeat the Great American Experiment. To use a very overused word, Donald Trump was an existential threat to the Leftist movement in the modern world.
So, when Donald and Melania Trump came down the golden escalator in June 16, 2015, the Left began their campaign to take out Donald Trump, the candidate, then the President. At first they chuckled about him not being a serious candidate but behind the scenes, the Obama Administration, including the Justice Department, FBI and the Intelligence services, began to surveil his candidacy and “create” fictitious operation research that they could use against him. During the ensuing months leading up to the election, the Left and their lap dogs in the media threw the Democrat playbook at Trump with no avail. The more they denigrated him, the more popular he became. “America First” and “Make America Great Again” resonated with conservatives, some Democrats, blue-collar workers, and most importantly with many in the minority communities.
Trump had struck a cord with the American People that could not be extinguished by Leftist mudslinging using sex, money, and finally race. The Left’s creation of the Russia Hoax is now pretty widely understood and I will not go into that here, Suffice it to say, this Leftist smear campaign against Donald Trump the Candidate, then Donald Trump the President, resonated with Leftist hate groups, race baiters, and philosophically opposed factions to the point where the majority of the Democrat party actually believed every untruthful allegation against Trump to be true. The hard Left groups knew that Trump would undo what had taken them 100 years to accomplish in the US and around the world and they knew they could not allow him to succeed. The hard Left also had allies in the Neo-Con “conservative” community who would do anything to maintain their hegemony over our foreign policy and foreign trade levers of power. Globalism to the Left and the Right was a religion that had to be maintained and protected and this “Orange” person threatened their kingdoms.
Fast forward to today when Trump has completely ripped up almost every bad Globalist trade deal for his new reciprocal trade deal format; ejected he US out of the Left wing Paris Climate Accord; Defunded US funding of abortion overseas; Pulled our troops out of Syria and Iran for the most part and working on pulling them out of Afghanistan; Moved our Israeli Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem; Torn up the US/Iran agreement and placed harsh sanctions on the Iranian regime; Defeated ISIS in Syria; Forced Europe to pay their share of NATO; and so on. All of these reversals struck at the heart of the Leftist global agenda.
But he did not stop overseas, Trump is providing School Choice to minority students who have been confined to failing public schools; Created Opportunity Zones to uplift the inner-cities and create jobs for historically unemployed minorities; provided long-term funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities; Provided increased child care support for families; Drastically revamping the healthcare systems that service the impoverished areas; Enacted long overdue Criminal Justice and Prison reform that benefitted the Black community the most; Brought millions of jobs to the US via tax cuts, regulation cuts, incentives to manufacturers and more. In short, in 3 years Trump’s domestic policies generated the lowest unemployment and raised income levels for all minorities; Raised the incomes for most minorities to historic levels; and created a business environment where Blacks and Hispanics opened more new business than at anytime in our history; and much more.
Chinese Virus: The onset of the Chinese Virus gave the Left another tool to use against Trump. But their hand is pretty weak trying to blame Trump for the impacts on our economy as a result of this Pandemic. While Trump was stopping travel into the US from China in January, the Radical Political Left was impeaching President Trump! But, the Left saw how easy it was to use the Pandemic to tear up the Constitution and Bill of Rights! Even today, the curtailment of free peaceful assembly, free speech, and freedom of religion is still being curtailed by leftist governors and mayors around the country. The Left also sees the use of continued, unsubstantiated “lock-downs” as a way to stop the economic recovery that is underway in the hopes that they can blame Trump for a slow recovery! Sick People!
Make no mistake, the Left is taking notes how to strip you of your rights in the event they are able to seize power, peacefully or not!
Trump’s popularity in minority communities scares the living hell out of the progressive Left to the point that supporting anarchy via Antifa and specifically Black Lives Matters is the last trump card the Left has to play, and play they are!
So, today, June 15, 2020, we have part of Seattle, including a police precinct, was taken over by Black Lives Matter and Antifa; Many major Left controlled cities in the US are calling for the defunding of the police or at a minimum cutting police budgets down to levels that will invite lawlessness; Riots spring up every time a police officer is involved with a shooting of a Black person; Calls for emasculating police power and force to the point of ridiculousness; and the Left’s media is flaming the fires 24-7.
It is so bad at this point there was a Fox reporter, Jonathon Hunt, on scene in Seattle stating that President Trump was wrong about the insurrection in Seattle and that the “protest” was 99.9% peaceful. What a complete idiot and dupe of the Left, thank you Fox News! By its very nature, an armed takeover of parts of an incorporated city, and the private property contained therein, and the citizens who work and reside within its confines, is insurrection and can in no way be construed as “PEACEFUL”. Is this really where we are today in “journalism? Are members of this self-proclaimed elite class that ignorant? Or are they part and parcel of the Left Push to Defeat the Great American Experiment! I think the latter.
A Bridge Too Far
A bridge too far has to come to mean an act or plan whose ambition overreaches its capability, resulting in or potentially leading to difficulty or failure. While “A Bridge Too Far” was a quote that came our of a discussion of a WWII plan by the allies to isolate the Nazis by taking out all of the bridges in the Netherlands, the plan failed as they did not take out one at Amhem. The Left is finding themselves in much the same predicament as the Allies. The Left’s plan was to take out Trump and take back power by any means necessary short of a revolution or a coup d’état,
But, Where is the “OFF” Button for Anarchy!
Do you really think that if Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer stood up and told Antifa, Black Lives Matters and all of the protestors and rioters to go home and chill out that they would obey them! Get Real! The political leaders in Democrat Party are now powerless to control their self-created mob. The Left Media is now in full control shouting orders to these groups and directing their next moves by innuendo. The mob has tasted blood and they believe that the majority of Americans either stand with them or are afraid of them.
The anarchist are calling the shots and their enablers in the Left wing media and the leftist controlled states and cities are aiding and abetting their every move. Congress is even complicit in their hand-wringing and endless apologies for all of the country’s past wrongs even though no one can articulate them in a coherent manner. Congress, both sides of the aisle, are frantically trying to out legislate the other to appease the mob. MOBS CANNOT BE APPEASED WITH LOGIC OR RHETORIC. It has been tried and it does not work.
Well, you could argue that the Off Button is the Federal Military and the National Guard if the President Federalizes the guard under Title 10 or Title 32 of the US code. He could further activate all of the provisions of the INSURRECTION ACT of 1807! This law provides:
“Empowers the President of the United States to deploy U.S. military and federalized National Guard troops within the United States in particular circumstances, such as to suppress civil disorder, insurrection and rebellion. The act provides the “major exception” to the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which limits the use of military personnel under federal command for law enforcement purposes within the United States. Before invoking the powers under the Act, 10 USC § 254 requires the President to first publish a proclamation ordering the insurgents to disperse.”
The Left knows that the President has this power and that this power has been used over 20 times by both Republican and Democrat Presidents, that last being George H.W. Bush in 1992 to quell the riots in Los Angeles. 1992 only impacted one city, Los Angeles, The current insurrection is impacting dozens of major cities across the US. So, the Left and its Media is portraying Trump as a dictator if he tries to quell this current wide-spread insurrection. Also, the Leftist Mayors and Governors are dragging their feet in taking charge so they can force Trump to act! God forbid one of the mob is killed by the military as this will be blown out of proportion and make the Kent State shootings seem small.
Where Will the Military Be?
Lately, you have seen several retired military Generals and even our Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff state that Trump is violating the US Constitution by some of his acts or planned acts. Of course, none of these brave soldiers name any of the specific of these alleged violations. But it begs the question, if the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, enacts the Insurrection Act, and Federalizes the National Guard and the Active Service Military, would the Pentagon resist? If they refused to deploy troops, this is the first step towards a coup d’état! How far would they go? If both houses Congress did not support the President and publicly ask the military to remove the President, would they do so? Would the Military tell Congress they had to impeach the President rather than unconstitutionally remove the President from Office? IF the President is impeached, would VP Pence be “ALLOWED” to succeed him or would the Military and Congress name their own President? Seem far fetched? Today seems far fetched!
Antifa and Black Lives Matter today are not strong enough nor organized enough to fend off the weight and military strength of the US Military. But, they could certainly loot, burn, maim, and kill indiscriminately before they are subdued. The impact on our cities, our citizens, and our immediate future would be grim to say the least. If the President deploys the Military around this nation, there will no doubt be violent actions and reactions. No doubt some will be killed, maybe on both sides. One thing for sure, the Left and its Media and the Democrats will blame President Trump in order to try to use it to defeat him in November.
The Law of Lawlessness
President Trump is in a Catch-22. If he does nothing, the lame left wing Mayors and Governors will sit back and let the violence continue. Eventually, President Trump will have to act and act decisively. The less decisive, the more casualties. It will have to be a swift, well coordinated effort followed by strict marshal law with strictly enforced curfews until emotions abate. It will be a sad day in America but better than allowing this to continue until we see Red States and Blue States enjoining in battle! We went through this once and a repeat of the American Civil War is not something any of us wish to consider.
We pray for this current upheaval to abate organically. But, if it does not, then there is only one option and it cannot be postponed too long…
