The Potemkin Election was held in November. Now the Washington establishment is caucusing for the real vote. There’s really no other way to describe what is taking place in DC presently than a claque of vomiting mandarins. The media vanguard of which being the blog of hyper-plutocrat Jeff Bezos, which features the unintentionally ironic masthead slogan of “Democracy dies in darkness.” Maybe, but undoing the results of democracy is work that paper does in broad daylight.
It’s unfortunate more people don’t notice how quickly liberal universal democracy-mongers become Jim Crow the instant those middle-class heartland niggers make a deplorable choice. Of course the sole point of installing an Infinite Franchise is to assure the imperium of its selection through a high-low coalition against the middle. It’s a pernicious strategy, but one that works. Soros has money and malevolence, while BLM/antifa have ganglions attached to nerve endings.
Except against all odds this time the strategy didn’t work. And that throbbing carcinoma on the Potomac has displayed its grace in losing by going utterly ape shit from second one. To be fair to malignancies, Trump has provided far more motivation to his enemies than his supporters of late. And that’s been his failing. That along with being undisciplined, impetuous, and thin-skinned.
But in his defense, none of us can comprehend the barometric pressure of his position. The presidency is several Earth gravity’s to begin with. Though much fewer when the press fawningly carries you about in a sedan-chair. But that was Obama. Trump has practically the entire political, bureaucratic, and judicial firmaments arrayed against him. This fact speaks far more grossly of our rotted institutions than of any choice of the people they unanimously despise. And Trump doesn’t even find respite in his own residence; the White House being a viper’s nest of leaks and lies.
Unfortunately, his shrinking radius of trust is compressing the presidency into a pantry of family members, neocons, and jews–sometimes all three in the same person. This cadre may honestly be loyal to him, whether out of blood or proximity to power, but who certainly hold no loyalty to the constituents that elected him. And these constituents are the only 63 million friends Trump has.
If Trump sought counsel from the Kakistocracy, I would advise him to jettison twitter, toss out every Goldman Banker, and start making routine and direct statements to the American people. 1) Establish a definitive agenda–I think Steve Bannon already has one available on his whiteboard. 2) Set-up project leads for each initiative, give them resources and timeframes for deliverables, and then set them to work. 3) Manage the projects and report on the progress. I presume all of this already takes place, though I’ve seen little evidence of it.
Though if novel to his approach, the process would put Trump in his native work habitat, focus the White House on defined tasks, and lessen the counterproductive squalling and drama. Of course this may not placate Trump’s Moscow handler. Though if Seth Rich was the source of Wikileak’s DNC Emails, then the “Russian election hack” narrative would be revealed as the dem/media stool it always was. And learning of more deceit from those venues would make tomorrow a fairly typical Wednesday.
