A speech with this title by a somewhat wonky writer/publisher circulated weeks ago and stayed with me.
I love it when precious and long-held media, partisan, and elitist narratives are dethroned – such has occurred repeatedly over the past 7 years. I’ve learned a lot, my thinking challenged and able to change, thank God.
We all know the mean-tweet meme, that for Independents and even for many Republicans Trump is just too rough around the edges and, somehow, unpresidential. (For truly unpresidential, just look at Biden’s buffoonish and evil “if you disagree with me you’re extremist and a threat to democracy” speech last Thursday, so over the top stupid and Hitlerian that even leftist pundits are critiquing it.) What virtue, if any, could such a “flawed man” as Trump represent?
Well, as Tom Klingenstein, Chairman of the Claremont Institute, notes, Trump is exactly the change agent we needed – and I would argue still desperately need – to save our beloved country from the Left’s planned destruction of it. This is being implemented before our eyes with the Great Reset (more like the Great Crash) which intends to raise totalitarianism from the ashes.
So why is Trump’s brashness his main virtue? Simply put, he doesn’t back down or get intimidated by the Left’s non-stop woke and hysterical attacks, including the old trope of being called a racist.
Instead of playing the role of the conservative roll-over, or that of controlled opposition which has only led to endless policy and political disasters for all of us, Trump perfected the counter-punch, sending leftist commentators (and then RINOs) into apoplectic fits.
In recent weeks, we have learned once again (in case we could forget) that the socialist/communist/woke Left can never go low enough in their existential drive to destroy Trump and all the American patriots he represents. The Fascist Bureau of Investigation’s illegal and unprecedented raid on Mar-a-Lago –which was either a fishing expedition to undermine the leading opposition candidate or a vigilante raid to scoop up incriminating documents on various agencies’ nefarious behavior during the Russia hoax, about which Trump recently slapped a RICO suit – followed by Biden’s mumble-mouthed attempt at Hitler impersonation last week show the depths our woke elites will go to eliminate Trump and thwart the public’s will. (The stolen 2020 elections are but a piece of this.)
Needless to say, both Trump and Maga Republicans – how appropriate that Biden and all the Left’s minions detest anyone who wishes to make America great again – are going from triumph to triumph to have elicited such desperate measures from our authoritarian masters.
The militaristic and ominous red lighting to Biden’s Nuremburg backdrop has been likened by some pundits to the blood of patriot martyrs (that is, ours), but I prefer to see it as a hat tip to the massive Red wave this coming November – if elections retain a modicum of integrity.
The question remains, exactly how low and totalitarian are they willing to go? Will any institutions survive the onslaught? Will American patriots resist the temptation to strike back in anger?
The biggest change agent – and reviled president – since Lincoln or Jackson, Trump could be the only politician able to perform a radical re-organization of the federal behemoth, eliminating department after department (the FBI, CDC, NIH, IRS, DOE and DOJ all come to mind) and firing millions of the hacks of our out-of-control administrative state, reverting massive funding and power back to the states. Think of it: the You’re Fired! President has been preparing for this critical task for decades.
Yet, even if Trump survives the current onslaught, is he up to the task?
I hope so, but am not sure. Trump, after all, during his first term decided to re-direct the federal behemoth to conservative/populist causes rather than starve it. My biggest beef continues to be Trump’s inexplicable support for the deadliest hoax pulled on the American population in history: the incredibly risky and ineffective EGT’s (experimental gene therapies) produced by Operation Warp Speed. As recently as last December, during a tour with Bill O’Reilly, both speakers extolled the highly experimental and unsafe injections, boasting of being “fully boosted.”
We all know Trump would never have mandated the jabs. Yet unless he comes forward and admits he was lied to and deceived by the likes of Fauci and Birx, how can we trust him to disband the federal medical bureaucracy – which still represents the greatest internal threat of our lifetimes to both health and liberty? (The lunatic mandates are still enfeebling much of the economy and nation, including the military, health care and Federal workers, among many other sacrificial lambs. The U.S. is one of the very few nations to grant “emergency use authorization” of the EGTs for babies and toddlers, which ranks us among the most evil nations on earth.)
Biden last spring extended the Covid “national emergency” for the rest of the year for clearly political, not medical, reasons.
Was his desecration of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall intended to set the predicate for a “national crisis” this fall that permits him to undermine elections (via another flood of mail-in ballots), outright suspend them, or make participation contingent upon proof of EGT? Who knows?
The only man strong and bull-headed enough to stand up to such serial aggressions is Trump. His many virtues – among which Klingenstein lists an uncommon courage, genuine patriotism, being a manly man with contempt for wokism and political correctness, who plays to win, identifies and then tackles crucial tasks without bowing to the “experts” – make him the right man at the right time. We are truly blessed to have such a leader.
I hope he declares for 2024 (or sooner) prior to the Lunatic Left’s and elites’ attempts to jail him.
