“Trump Disrupts World.” —44gh.,b72
“In an Epic Final Speech, Joe Biden Warns that the Progressive Democratic World Order Is at Risk of Collapse.” — cnbc, 1/18/17 For the first time in my life, I’m proud to agree with Joe Biden. The power architecture of the worldwide left is disintegrating.
The political earthquake that started with the Trump Tower escalator ride on June 16, 2015, the day Donald Trump announced his Presidential run, still rattles the globe. The shuddering has only grown more intense, both here and abroad.
The entire world elite took to fainting couches following a handful of media interviews Trump gave just before taking office, in which he reiterated his positions on Brexit (beautiful), the European Union (annoying), nato (obsolete), and the One-China policy (up for review). He said these exact things many times over the last year and a half, but it’s only now starting to dawn on the geniuses in the intellectual class that Trump’s ideas — which they’ve never taken seriously — are actually going to determine U.S. policy. The intelligentsia’s reaction: Nooooooooo! Trump is screwing up the “world order.” Seriously.
“Trump’s comments — made … with no apparent respect for the nuances and niceties of diplomacy — could throw an already fragile world into disorder,” sniffed The New Yorker magazine. The Wall Street Journal took the temperature of the international elite gathered at the World Economic Forum: “On this bracingly cold day here in Davos, one could palpably feel the shake in the world order.”
The New Yorker further reported that Trump has “jolted governments from Brussels to Beijing. Many of his ideas disparage the principles, institutions, and alliances central to U.S. foreign policy … [that] prevent global conflagrations.” Yep, the institutions that have given us “order.”
They really believe this crap. The truth is, the globalist “order” has been a tight-knit system of cronyism, corruption, graft (see: Clinton Global Initiative), arms dealing, foment, and warcraft — which has benefited this bunch with enormous wealth. That is the order Trump is disrupting.
But it’s not just the international crowd that’s panicked. The domestic order in D.C. has also been upended:
- “Trump’s Inauguration to Shatter Washington Norms.” — Politico, 1/13/17
- “Heavily Democratic D.C. Braces for a Swamp-Draining New Republican President.” — The Washington Post, 1/13/17
- “State Department Held Stress Workshops After Trump’s Win.” — The Washington Free Beacon, 1/16/17
- “Trump Could Cause ‘The Death of Think Tanks as We Know Them.’” — The Washington Post, 1/15/17
- “Democrats, Left in the Lurch: The Curious Decline and Uncertain Future of the Democratic Party.” — nbc News, 1/18/17
The “order” in official Washington has been rooted in liberal power. Until now, despite election results, D.C. has remained a one-Party town. Thanks to burrowed-in Democrat apparatchiks, Democrat bureaucrats, and Democrat operatives in all agencies and government departments, Democrat Party control has infused every square inch of the Capitol.
Donald Trump has blown that structure wide open. His electoral victory revealed that the Democrat Party has been utterly hollowed out over the last eight years under Barack Obama. It is pathetically debilitated — weaker than it’s been in generations. Not only are Democrats without elective power in either House in Congress, not only are they without power in the Executive Branch — Democrats are about to lose their grip on the mother lode, their real source of political muscle: the judiciary.
There are 104 vacant federal judgeships waiting for his nominations when he takes office. The judiciary has been the left’s go-to option when they fail to achieve their objectives legislatively. This change in the nature of the judiciary could last for decades.” Not only did their own media hide the truth, not only did their own arrogance and bigotry render them unable to discern the mood of their countrymen, but history was not a guide. What Trump accomplished by winning the Presidency, without ever before having run for office or ever having held a military leadership position, is “an achievement without precedent,” as Newt Gingrich put it at the Heritage Foundation on 1/17/17, in “Understanding Trump and Trumpism.”
Trump’s vision and energy are anti-globalist and unapologetically pro-American dominance and wealth — re-establishing American greatness — but with new, Trumpian diagnoses on trade, global currency, manufacturing, and international alliances. Yet the left understands none of this, and are still running their tired old handbook against him..
Biden told The New York Times Magazine on 1/17/17: “It’s like a Rubik’s cube trying to figure this guy out. We have no freakin’ idea what he’s gonna do.”
To these people, life is a fight for power, and whoever has the power gets to dictate the terms. They fight for power so they can dictate to us what marriage is, what compassion is, what “citizen” is, what America is, what reality is.
Likewise, they don’t accept the reality that they lost on November 8. No, they were cheated. By Comey, by Putin, whatever. They are always, in every circumstance, committed to overthrowing and reversing reality. It is delusional; these are sick people. And they’re not going away, especially since Trump so relentlessly insists on pushing reality right in their faces. They’re going to constantly come unglued and be disruptive during his Presidency. Let ’em.
