Even the most optimistic amongst us must have known that the relentless, over-the-top, 24/7, all-hands-on-deck assault against Trump was eventually going to get him to do something to make even his most ardent supporters lose faith.
This ridiculous attack on Syria is a big mistake on Trump’s part, but I don’t think it’s a fatal mistake–at least not yet. I believe Trump–and by extension, the movement he’s inspired–can recover with one simple trick: Oust Kushner, reinstate Bannon, damn the torpedoes, and full isolationist/nationalist ahead.
Clearly the globalist, war-mongering neocons and have been successful in isolating Bannon and driving a wedge between him and Trump. As Bannon became less of an influential voice, the neocons moved in with their forked tongues, whispering sweet nothings into Trump’s ear, encouraging him to start WWIII.
“Think of the children, Trump! Won’t you think of the children, Trump?”
We all knew Trump’s not a genius. He has great instincts, but he’s still liable to fall prey to evil geniuses–and evil geniuses infest DC like maggots in roadkill.
Since our thoroughly evil Establishment couldn’t beat him in the general in November, and their stupid “Trump collaborated with Russia!” nonsense wouldn’t take wing, they’ve gone with Plan C: Get his America-first, Anti-WWIII advisors like Bannon out of the way, and sweet-talk their way into having him take out their enemies–Assad, Putin, Iran, maybe North Korea, and who knows who next.
I see a lot of people saying “I told you so! Blackpills for everyone!” kind of stuff. I have to believe 90% of these posts are coming from our enemies, trying to drive home the despair that they have foisted upon us in the first place. To them I say, nuts.
Trump has brought a new energy to the fight for Western Civilization unlike anything we’ve seen since, at best, Reagan. This is not a time to abandon him, but to make it clear he must correct course, and do so quickly. We who put him into office don’t want Kushner advising him. We want Bannon. We don’t want more wars, we don’t give a shit about Syria or North Korea or Iran or Russia; we care about our house-of-cards economy, failing infrastructure, abysmally corrupt institutions, treasonous government, etc.
We voted you into office, Mr. President. And we can vote you out far more easily. Work for patriotic Americans, not for the treasonous slime who are trying to persuade you that starting a global, possibly nuclear, conflict is somehow the morally right thing to do.
Rid yourself of Kushner. Reinstate Bannon. You are in charge. Make sure the neocon lunatics understand this.
