Confessions of a Trump Republican, by Frank Miele

Trump is not some Svengali with magic powers of persuasion, nor are his supporters the gullible dupes the media makes them out to be. From Frank Miele at realclearpolitics.com:

Confessions of a Trump Republican

Over at MSNBC, they are calling those who think like me “Dead-Enders,” people who will follow Donald Trump into the bunker and die with him. It’s supposed to be an insult. That’s all right. I’ve been called worse — domestic terrorist, white supremacist, racist. None of those slurs are accurate, but they sure do hurt.

Which is the point.

My smart-beyond-her-ninth-grade-education mother warned me about the power of political name-calling a long time ago. Back in the 1960s when I was a precocious ninth-grader myself, my mom told me never to join the Students for a Democratic Society, a left-wing antiwar group that kept sending me mail asking for a donation. If you do send them money, my mom said, then you are going to have a target on your back. Sometime, maybe years later, powerful people will come after you, call you a communist, and try to punish you.

She knew all about name-calling because she had lived through the Red Scare of the 1950s. People lost their careers for joining the wrong group, for attending the wrong rally — for having the wrong beliefs. Lives were ruined. Blacklists kept people in fear. It was hard to believe for a young man like me who loved his country that there would ever come a time again when Americans could be marginalized and have their livelihoods threatened just for taking a political stand.

But here we are again. Today, you can’t be a Trump conservative or, heaven forbid, a Trump Republican without having not just your patriotism questioned, but your very sanity.

Over on CNN, folks like me are targeted as the Republicans trying to “roll back your right to vote.” John King, who was once a real journalist, should know better. But there he is, telling the useful idiots who watch CNN that defending against election fraud is somehow an attack on voting rights. This kind of loose talk legitimizes attacks on people like me since he states as a fact that we are working to undermine democracy.

Biden Day One: Nothing Changed, Nothing Ever Will, by Martin Sieff

The Biden administration is going to pretend like the 2016 election and subsequent four years never happened, and things are going to go back to what they were before. From Martin Sieff at strategic-culture.org:

The Liberal Sleepwalkers are not dealing with the passive, stupid thuggish, unthinking herd that they believe half the American people to be.

The Doom of the Biden Administration and within the next eight years of the entire supposedly great and mighty Democratic Party has been written in deeds on the very first full day of Joe Biden’s presidency.

There were absolutely no surprises whatsoever in it. Biden did what he said he was going to do. He nominated exactly the people he said he was going to nominate. The US Liberal Mainstream Media with their usual Courage and Character slavishly applauded with unanimous mindless reverence.

We are back in 2016. Donald Trump Never Happened. The populist national awakening across the American Heartland never happened. All the material gains that the white, black and Hispanic long-suffering working classes genuinely made in the first three years of Trump’s presidency are going to be erased. They Never Happened Either. Just Shut Your Eyes and It Will All Go Away.

Your Government is Afraid of You, by Chris Farrell

The government being afraid of its citizens is not necessarily a bad thing. From Chris Farrell at gatestoneinstitute.org:

  • The Swamp is terrified of Trump – still. That explains their fixation on eradicating him and his movement.
  • You are also supposed to ignore the facts concerning months-long violent protests with killings and burnings across America’s cities by Antifa and BLM. Months ago, Washington DC mayor Muriel Bowser, demanded that the National Guard withdraw from her city amid violent demonstrations. She then named a street after those demonstrators and allowed them to paint their motto across the entire street.
  • Watch for the same sort of public treatment and language applied to Trump supporters going forward. It is consistent with a government that is in fear of its own people. The type of government that has 25,000 soldiers guarding a few politicians in an empty city.

The Swamp is terrified of Trump – still. That explains their fixation on eradicating him and his movement. “Trumpism” was not extinguished when Joe Biden raised his right hand to become the 46th president.

Borrowed Time, by James the Deplorable Wanderer

The Republicans officials who think the party can go back to the way things were before Trump are deluded…and doomed. From James the Deplorable Wanderer at theburningplatform.com:

The Republican Party in America is living on borrowed time.

78 million voters from both parties (give or take a couple million) watched as the Republican Party establishment RINOs spent four years giving lip service and occasional half-hearted support to President Donald Trump as he tried to turn the country around from destruction. 78 million voters watched rallies of tens of thousands turn out in rain, snow, blistering heat to support a President they saw as working for them. 78 million voters voted for him; and watched a crooked cabal steal the election to give office to a Chinese Communist Party puppet.

They then watched lawsuit after lawsuit denied by partisan or disinterested courts, all the way to a SCOTUS whose corrupted and compromised Chief Justice refused to see any evidence, hear any evidence, speak of any evidence. Then came the illegitimate inauguration, and now a SECOND partisan impeachment, winding its way through a Congressional sewer without end.

78 million voters are FURIOUS. Due to the Fake Pandemic, I don’t get out and around much these days; sometimes I’ll wear a mask to blend in, even though no science supports that superstitious behavior as a preventative measure against viruses. But I’ve never had so many total strangers tell me they know the election was stolen, the appeals system rigged and the fix was in before this year. I’ve made a couple casual friends just by agreeing with them. And none seem willing to “unify” behind a liar, cheater, moral reprobate currently in the Oval Office (unless that’s just a movie set, as has been suggested).

Confessions of a Deprogrammed Trump Supporter, by Matthew Ehret

A Trump penitent confesses his sins. From Matthew Ehret at strategic-culture.org:

As many people are aware, CNN recently aired a wonderful interview by former Moonie-turned-cult-deprogrammer Steve Hassan giving advice to Americans wishing to deprogram their MAGA-hat wearing loved ones, now that the age of Trump is coming to an end.

I was fortunate enough to have read Hassan’s book and had the loving scrub-brush of truth wash my brain of all of its formerly pro-Trump sympathies and can honestly say that I am most certainly better off for having left those old delusions in the past.

For one thing, I used to enjoy my right to free speech… but thanks to the terrible events of January 6, 2021 that left 3 people dead, horned Q supporters doing photo ops for media, pro-Trump rioters let into the capitol building by guards, and busloads of conspicuous violent figures whom some say were “provocateurs” (whatever that means), I have come to realize that I was all wrong. Free speech is actually very dangerous. Words we took for granted like “patriot”, “nationalism”, or “vote fraud” are actually very racist and using them is a sure fire sign that you might be a domestic terrorist. At any rate, using them should at least be enough to get someone banned from social media and put under surveillance.

Viral #TrumpsNewArmy Video Is Liberals At Their Craziest And Scariest, by Caitlin Johnstone

Totalitarianism is all the rage these days. From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:

A new viral video calling on liberals to form “an army of citizen detectives” to gather information on Trump supporters and report their activities to the authorities has racked up thousands of shares and millions of views in just a few hours.

The hashtag #TrumpsNewArmy is trending on Twitter as of this writing due to the release of a horrifying video with that title from successful author and virulent Russiagater Don Winslow. As of this writing it has some 20 thousand shares and 2.6 million views, and the comments and quote-retweets are predominantly supportive.

“On or before January 20th, Donald Trump will no longer be the Commander-in-Chief: he will lose control of the Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines, Special Forces and America’s nuclear arsenal,” Winslow’s voice begins ominously. “On January 20th Donald Trump will become Commander-in-Chief of a different army: this army.”

Viewers are then shown footage from Trump rallies while being told that they are looking at “radical extreme conservatives, also known as domestic terrorists”.

ABC News Calls for ‘Cleansing’ of Trump Supporters in Wake of Capitol Incursion, by Kipp Jones

The only surprise is that none of the politicians or legacy media have called for mass executions…yet. From Kipp Jones at Western Journal via zerohedge.com:

As part of the Democratic Party, establishment media and Washington swamp campaign to tear down the legacy of President Donald Trump this week, the political director for ABC News called for a “cleansing” of Trump’s movement.

Rick Klein, who is the rudder on the corrupt ABC News political coverage ship, must have been feeling awfully emboldened Thursday after Democrat Joe Biden was officially certified as the country’s next president. Perhaps a little too emboldened, as is evident by what he said on Twitter.

“Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else,” Klein said in a tweet, which he later deleted.

Thank the good lord for screen shots.

But this was no mere slip-up of a lone network employee on social media. ABC News published a piece in which Klein echoed his message. His views are apparently shared by others at the legacy media outlet.

Thursday on the website’s political analysis page “The Note,” Klein and Mary Alice Parks, ABC News deputy political director, co-wrote a piece that called for a similar “cleansing” of the Trump movement before it was later stealthily edited to change that vague and dark language, Fox News reported.

Why Trump Voters Don’t Trust the People Who Count the Votes, by Ryan McMaken

After a nonstop campaign of vitriol and lies against Trump since he announced his candidacy, Trump voters don’t trust the liars. They’d have to have single-digit IQs to do so. From Ryan McMaken at mises.org:

Perhaps not since the nineteenth century have so many American voters so fervently doubted the outcome of a national election.

Slate headline from December 13 reads: “82 Percent of Trump Voters Say Biden’s Win Isn’t Legitimate.” If even half true, this poll means tens of millions of Americans believe the incoming ruling party in Washington got its political power by cheating. 

The implications of this are broader than one might think. Under the current system, if many millions of Americans doubt the veracity of the official vote count, the challenge to the status quo goes beyond simply thinking that Democrats are cheaters. Rather, the Trump voters’ doubts indict much of the American political system overall and call its legitimacy into question. 

For example, if Trump supporters are unwilling to accept that the vote count in Georgia was fair—in a state where Republicans control both the legislature and the governor’s mansion—this means skepticism goes well beyond mere distrust of the Democratic Party. For Trump’s vote-count skeptics, not even the GOP or the nonpartisan election officials can be trusted to count the votes properly. 

Moreover, unlike the general public, Trump supporters appear to have adopted a keenly suspicious view toward these administrators and the systems they control. This is all to the best, regardless of the true extent of voter fraud in 2020. After all, government administrators—including those who count the votes—are not mere disinterested, efficiency-obsessed administrators. They have their own biases and political interests. They’re not neutral.

We Are On Our Own, by Southern Sage

If you don’t get the joke by now, you’ll never get it: the rulers despise the exploited ruled, who are on their own to do something about it. January 6 was just another in a long series of cold slaps across our faces. From Southern Sage at theburningplatform.com:

Well, this is it, isn’t it? The storming of the Capitol is an event which will mark a watershed in our history. Make no mistake. This is the end of “Trumpism” and the Republican Party. Pence, needless to say, is political history. And you had better believe that the Democrats, and especially the Establishment Republicans, know it. Let us leave aside the fact that many of those storming the Capitol acted out of impulse and rage.

The Establishment will now attempt to label the core population of America as “terrorists” and criminals. Good enough. They will get what they have been asking for. The mask has fallen. Ordinary Americans are waking up to the fact that “they been had” and things will only get uglier. The fools in Congress will react with fury and that will only turn up the heat. We are now two countries and only one can win in the end.

In 1905 a crowd of peaceful protesters gathered outside the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg to beg “The Little Father” for bread. What they got was a hurricane of 7.62X54R ball ammo right in their faces. After that, the die was cast for Russia. Yes, things “calmed down” after a while but the fragile bond between the people and their government had been broken forever. It was called “Bloody Sunday”. We will have many bloody Sundays before the pot finally boils over.

Featured Story When Deplorables Become Ungovernables, by Pepe Escobar

There are about 75 million Trump supporters who won’t lift any finger but their middle one for the Biden/Harris administration. From Pepe Escobar at strategic-culture.org:

China, Russia and Iran are the top three existential “threats” to the U.S., according to the National Security Strategy. Three features distinguish the top three. They are all sovereign powers. They are under varying degrees of sanctions. And they are the top three nodes of the 21st century’s most important, evolving geopolitical process: Eurasia integration.

What do the three sovereigns see when they examine the dystopia that took over Exceptionalistan?

They see, once again, three – discombobulated – nodes in conflict: the post-historic Pacific and Atlantic coasts; the South – a sort of expanded Dixieland; and the Midwest – what would be the American heartland.

The hyper-modern Pacific-Atlantic nodes congregate high-tech and finance, profit from Pentagon techno-breakthroughs and benefit from the “America rules the waves” ethos that guarantees the global primacy of the U.S. dollar.

The rest of America is largely considered by the Pacific-Atlantic as just a collection of flyover states: the South – which regards itself as the real, authentic America; and the Midwest, largely disciplined and quite practical-minded, squeezed ideologically between the littoral powerhouses and the South.

Superstructure, tough, is key: no matter what happens, whatever the fractures, this remains an Empire, where only a tiny elite, a de facto plutocratic oligarchy, rules.
