One of Steve Sailer’s many clever commenters has brilliantly named it WhateverGate—the frantic legalistic churning about who said what to whom in President Trump’s circle, and whether the thing that was or was not said warrants impeachment. Or whatever. But impeachment. Every week, I think things can’t get any crazier—the hysteria has to burn itself out, the temperature can’t get any higher, the fever has to break—and every week it’s worse. Boy, they really want to get this guy. That just gives us more reasons to defend him.

I don’t even bother much any more to focus on the actual thing that President Trump or one of his colleagues is supposed to have said or done. Every time, when you look closely, it’s basically nothing.

I’ve been reading news and memoirs about American presidents since the Kennedy administration. I swear that every single damn thing Trump is accused of, warranting special counsels, congressional enquiries, impeachment—every single thing has been done by other recent presidents, often to a much greater degree, with little or no comment.

"This is my last election ... After my election I have more flexibility," Obama said, expressing confidence that he would win a second term. "I will transmit this information to Vladimir," said Medvedev, Putin's protégé and long considered number two in Moscow's power structure.Remember Barack Obama’s hot-mike blooper in the 2012 campaign, telling the Russian President that, quote, “After my election I have more flexibility”? [Obama tells Russia’s Medvedev more flexibility after election, Reuters, March 26, 2012] Can you imagine how today’s media would react if footage showed up of Trump doing that in last year’s campaign? Can you imagine? I can’t.

We are a big, important country with big, important things that need doing—most important of all, halting the demographic transformation that’s tugging us out of the Anglosphere into the Latino-sphere and filling our country with low-skill workers just as robots are arriving to take their jobs.

Those big, important things aren’t getting done. Instead, our news outlets are shrieking about high crimes and misdemeanors in the new administration–things that, when you read about the actual details, look awful picayune.

Sample, from today’s press, concerning Michael Flynn, the national security advisor President Trump fired for supposedly lying to the Vice President about a phone conversation he’d had with the Russian Ambassador last December. To the best of my understanding, the root issue was just a difference of opinion over the parsing of what Flynn remembered having said, and the precise definition of the word “substantive,” but Trump fired him anyway.

Well, here’s Eli Lake at Bloomberg News on the latest tranche of investigations into Flynn’s activities:

Flynn’s legal troubles … come from his failure to properly report foreign income. One source close to Flynn told me that the Justice Department had opened an investigation into Flynn after the election in November for failing to register his work on behalf of a Turkish businessman, pursuant to the Foreign Agents Registration Act. Flynn had instead reported this income through the more lax Lobbying Disclosure Act. After his resignation, Flynn registered as a foreign agent for Turkey.

The Special Counsel Who Just Might Save Trump’s Presidency, by Eli Lake, May 18, 2017

Did you get that? Instead of registering under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, Flynn reported his income through the Lobbying Disclosure Act!

High crimes! Treason! Special Prosecutor! Congressional inquiry! The Republic is in danger! Suspend habeas corpus! This must not stand!

And then, the whole silly Russia business. The Bloomberg guy has words about that, too:

Flynn also failed to report with the Pentagon his payment in 2015 from Russia’s propaganda network, RT, for a speech in Moscow at the network’s annual gala. As I reported last month, Flynn did brief the Defense Intelligence Agency about that trip before and after he attended the RT gala. The Pentagon also renewed his top-secret security clearance after that trip.

So obviously the rot goes deep into the Pentagon. They’re covering for him! Let’s have a purge of the military! Special prosecutor!

Oh, we have a special prosecutor? Let’s have another one!

Russia, Russia, Russia. For crying out loud, Russia’s just a country. We have no great differences of interest with them. What, are they trying to reclaim Alaska? First I’ve heard of it.

You could make an argument, I suppose—I don’t myself think it’s much of an argument, but you could make it—that Russia’s a military threat to Europe.

Once again, with feeling: Europe has a population three and a half times greater than Russia’s and a GDP ten times greater. Europe’s two nuclear powers, Britain and France, have more than five hundred nuclear weapons between them. If the Euros can’t defend themselves against Russia, there’s something very badly wrong over there, beyond any ability of ours to fix–even if you could show me it’s in our national interest to fix it, which you can’t.

At this point, in fact, reading the news from Europe, I think a Russian invasion and occupation of the continent would be an improvement. A Russian hegemony might at least put up some resistance to the ongoing invasion of Europe from Africa and the Middle East. It doesn’t look as though the Euros themselves are up to the job.

That aside, American citizens are free to visit Russia and talk to Russians, including Russian government employees, just as free as we are to talk to Australians, Brazilians, or Cambodians. As the Lion said on his blog:

Do liberals who are making a big deal about the Trump-Russia thing really believe that no one involved in a presidential campaign should have ever talked to anyone from another country? How would an administration ever conduct any foreign policy if no one in the administration has ever left the United States or ever talked to a foreigner?

And again, these standards have never been applied to other Presidents. Bill Clinton took campaign donations from the Chinese army. [Chinagate and the Clintons, By Robert Zapesochny, American Spectator, October 6, 2016] Barack Obama groveled to the Saudis. Where were the calls for special prosecutors?

Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, with whom Flynn had that December phone conversation, is, says the New York Post, “a suspected Kremlin spy.” [Michael Flynn won’t honor subpoena to provide documents, By Bob Fredericks, May 18, 2017] Is he? Why should I care?

I bet ol’ Sergey does all the spying he can. So, I’m sure, do the ambassadors of China, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Botswana. That’s what ambassadors do. That’s what we do in their countries. Does anyone not know this?

“A Kremlin spy”? What is this, 1957? Russia’s just a country. And as our own James Kirkpatrick has pointed out here at VDARE.com, it’s a country run by people who hate us—the American people—less than our own elites do.

As James also points out, if it’s interference in our elections that bothers you, consider what Mexico’s been doing for the last forty years: encouraging mass immigration of its own underclass into the U.S.A., lobbying through its consulates and Spanish-language TV channels for voter registration, using Mexican-owned outlets like the New York Times to demonize and discredit national conservatives.

The founder of Christianity scoffed at those who strain at a gnat but swallow a camel. In the matter of foreign interference in our elections, the gnat here is Russia; the camel is Mexico. Our media and opinion elites have swallowed the camel.

Unless, of course, just down the road a few months, there’s going to be a hysteria-storm about Mexican interference in our elections. My advice would be: Don’t hold your breath.

All the shouting and swooning is just the rage of a dispossessed class—our political class.

ORDER IT NOW

Our political and government class, I think I should say. There are tens of thousands of federal functionaries who have never stood for election to anything, but whose loyalty is to the political Establishment. Great numbers of these people settled in to their comfortable seats during the eight years of Barack Obama’s administration; so to the degree that they care about party affiliation, they prefer the Democratic Party. Washington, D.C. voted 91 percent for Mrs. Clinton last November.

Real Watergate Scandal This is the famous swamp that candidate Trump promised to drain. This is where the leaks come from. [Obama Holdovers, Vacant Posts Still Plague TrumpAdministration housecleaning is long overdue to get agenda in motion, end damaging leaks, by Thomas Richard, LifeZette.com, May 18, 2017] Draining the swamp means getting rid of those people. They should be fired—en masse, in their hundreds and thousands, and marched out the office door by security guards before they can trash files.

Still, a big majority of federal politicians are helping to drive the hysteria; and their rage against Trump is, as they say in D.C., bipartisan. Senator John McCain told CNN on Tuesday that President Trump’s troubles are, quote, “of Watergate size and scale.”

There’s a grain of truth in that. The Watergate affair was a media witch-hunt against a president the Establishment elites disliked. Nixon’s offenses were of a kind the Main Stream Media had never bothered about, nor even reported, when done by Democrat presidents—like Lyndon Johnson’s bugging of Barry Goldwater in 1964.

So yes: When the political and media establishment try to drive from office a president they dislike, it is kinda like Watergate.

It’s pretty plain by now that the Republican Party Establishment is not going to forgive Donald Trump for humiliating them last year. They’ll be just as happy as Democrats to see him go, if they can somehow help the Democrats force him out without showing too much outward enthusiasm.

Last August, after Trump had clinched the Republican nomination, I reproduced a remark Peggy Noonan made in one of her columns. Here’s the remark again, quote:

From what I’ve seen there has been zero reflection on the part of Republican leaders on how much the base’s views differ from theirs and what to do about it. The GOP is not at all refiguring its stands.

Has there been any reflection among GOP leaders in the nine months since, about the meaning of Trump’s victory? Not much that I can see.

Sixty-three million Americans rejected establishment politics last November. They took a chance on an outsider. From a field of seventeen seasoned Republican politicians, GOP primary voters selected the one un-seasoned guy. Then sixty-three million of us voted for him in the general.

Does the GOP get this? Have they learned anything from it? Not that I can see.

With some exceptions, of course. GOP elder statesman Pat Buchanan spelled it out in an interview with the Daily Caller this week:

We tried the wars, we tried the free trade globalism, and we tried the open borders and people don’t like the results. And they’re not going to like it better if we go back to the same approach.

Pat Buchanan: It Isn’t Watergate Yet, But How Long Can This Sustain? by Alex Pfeiffer, May 17, 2017

The GOP leadership would like to go back anyway. They think if they can get rid of Trump, that will get rid of Trumpism. They yearn to get back to the futile wars, the free trade sucker economy, the open borders and multiculturalism.

ORDER IT NOW

If they can just pull off an impeachment, the Republican party bosses believe, and install some donor-compliant drone in the White House, then we sixty-three million Trump voters will smack our foreheads with our palms and say: “Jeez, we are so dumb! Why did we let ourselves get led astray like that? Why didn’t we vote for Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush in the primaries, as you wise elders wanted us to? We’re sorry! We promise to follow your advice in future!”

They really think that, the McCains and Grahams and McConnells and Ryans. Get rid of Trump, you get rid of Trumpism, they believe. Then we can all go back to what Orwell called “the dear old game of scratch-my-neighbor.”

Yep, this is the Stupid Party.

But whether Donald Trump is actually the right person to give us Trumpism is more and more in doubt.


I am of course grateful for the small mercies. Thank you for Jeff Sessions; thank you for the work you’re doing on trade; thank you somewhat for Neil Gorsuch, who may yet turn and cuck on us.

Those are small mercies, though. Where’s the really big, bold swamp-draining exercise, like the one I just described? Why are we still issuing work permits to illegal aliens? Why no federal legislation to slam a mandatory ten-year sentence on any illegal who, after being deported, comes back in? Why no request to Congress on funding for the border Wall? For an end to the visa lottery and restrictions on chain migration? When do we start testing the constitutionality of birthright citizenship? Why are we still in NATO? Why are we still at war with North Korea (which technically we are, since there hasn’t been a peace treaty, only an armistice)?

I like Ann Coulter’s analogy: It’s as if we’re in Chicago, and Trump says he can get us to L.A. in six days; and then for the first three days we’re driving towards New York. He can still turn around and get us to L.A. in three days. But, says Ann, she’s getting nervous.

Me too.

    It’s a good analogy. Personally I’ve already jumped out, but it was easier for me because my main concern is foreign policy, where Trump has made it abundantly clear he will preside over more of the same groupthink interventionist idiocy in the service of foreign interests that has prevailed for the past two decades. I can understand the continued, increasingly desperate hope of people like Derbyshire that there might still be some chance that they might yet not be utterly betrayed, though.

    And still, as commenter reiner Tor put it here a couple of days ago, Trump’s most powerful enemies are still my enemies. Even though I don’t see him as any solution, it’s still impossible not to back him to some extent against the media and establishment globalist types and all the literally absurd, hysterical nonsense they keep pushing. At least, until someone actually worthwhile comes along.

    Theresa May made her nasty party speech in 2002, in it she accused follow Tories of ging the party a bad name by “make political capital out of demonising minorities”, ”

    Stephen Bush at New Statesman. Leftie magazine article on her (now government minister with responsibility for immigration) in 2015

    The Home Secretary’s speech was a desperate gambit by a politician staring retirement in the face. May is 59 – two years older than David Davis when he was defeated by David Cameron – and is sufficiently opposed to George Osborne on social, economic, foreign policy and security issues to make political survival at the top level of an Osborne administration impossible. The battle beween Boris Johnson and Osborne dominates the attention. Younger candidates who can offer a genuine fresh start, like Nicky Morgan, are eating up airtime too. This was a desperate cry for relevance, aimed at Tory MPs – with half an eye on party members, too. “It’s not her speeches, it’s her record,” one quipped: for all the scaremongering, for all the families split apart, and the academics deported, immigration is still going up. She is still, despite five years at the Home Office, the subject of hostility for her “nasty party” speech.

    And the big hole in the speech was noticed just as much by Conservative members and activists as anyone else: if immigration is as awful as May makes out, the only way is to leave the European Union. And unless – or perhaps, untill – May turns her rhetoric into genuine support for a European exit, it will continue to fall flat, not just among the pro-migration left but on the right as well.

    It is important to remember that the immigration that would be halted by leaving the EU would be of Poles ect. May campaigned for the stay in the EU side, which lost the referendum on Brexit. Then she became Prime Minister, see is no the most popular of modern times http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/theresa-may-more-popular-than-the-tory-party-conservatives-jeremy-corbyn-labour-poll-orb-tim-farron-a7735091.html

    How has she achieved this level of popularity? She accused the EU (Germany) of interfering in UK’s general election http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/05/02/germany-interfering-general-election-undermine-theresa-may/

    Speaking outside Downing Street, Ms May also tore into some EU leaders and officials and said Britain would not allow the “bureaucrats of Brussels to run over us”.

    In the Conservative manifesto for the general election Theresa May’s Conservativewill charge companies £2000 a year for each non-EU worker they recruit .

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/theresa-may-syria-airstrikes-vote-election-donald-trump-a7732906.html

    Theresa May has refused to rule out a fresh vote in the Commons after the general election to authorise new air strikes in Syria alongside Donald Trump’s US administration.

    Asked by the BBC during a campaign rally in the north-east whether she would rule out having a prior-entry vote, the Prime Minister replied: “As you know the United Kingdom is part of a coalition that is operating in Syria and Iraq with the United States and other countries too, to ensure that we acting to defeat Daesh [another name for Isis].

    “But also working not just in that action but diplomatically to ensure others that we can see a stable Syria for the future and a political transition for Syria away from Assad.

    Force is always concentrated against weakness, which is why the establishment are doubling down on Trump. Trump could do worse that taking a leaf out of May’s book. He should move cautiously and always put himself in the position of defending the US. He needs to pay attention to what the established methods of diplomacy can give him, and let the State department work for him. He doesn’t have to follow the established policies but he should use US diplomatic expertise, whatever his own objectives might be. America has diplomats but they can be most effective when the President applies a bit of pressure .

    The sight of America’s leading with its strength will give Trump both foreign policy successes and the domestic support that will let him make revolutionary changes, using the establishment to do it. He needs the state machinery, and whan the functionaries see he is producing the goods, and has democratic consent for proposal on immigration, they will go along.

    Flynn was a mistake but Trump is disproving any possibility of collusion with Russia with McMaster.

    The hysteria that won’t die down about some kind of alleged Trump collusion with Russia doesn’t speak well for the American public. The reason why the American establishment is gunning for Trump in ever more ridiculous and absurd fashion is because they think that American public will buy their stupid stories. The reason why they believe this – is because they have done it before. After decades of telling nonsensical propaganda drivel during the cold war, American establishment thinks that they know their audience, which they have conditioned to accept any outrageous lie that comes to their mind. But this is where it gets tricky, by insulting the intelligence of the American public with stupid stories that they, (the establishment) is expecting them to buy, the establishment is humiliating itself too, by showing that they are out of intelligent ideas with which to persuade the American public to buy their agenda.

  7. Pat Boyle says:

    I read a series of articles in Esquire magazine thirty years ago. They picked some successful but obscure business man and asked the question – “Why isn’t this man the President?”

    It was a good question. Now we are learning the answer. A businessman can’t be President because the Democrats are too outraged by the idea. The party of government (the Democrats) find the idea of a man from private industry to be an obscenity.

    Hillary Clinton tried very hard to get the electorate to get excited about a woman candidate. But female heads of state are common elsewhere. America hasn’t had a female President and that’s a bit of an anomaly. The reason seems to be that no credible female candidates have run. There have been a number of female senators, congressmen and governors. There is no effort to exclude women from public office. But the Democrats are horrified my the idea that a person from private enterprise could dare to hold the Presidency.

    Some of the reason for the Democrats revulsion about Trump and private industry candidates is simply Marxism. They think of people from the business world as the boogy-man. They assume that if you want to lower taxes you are just trying to let more money become available for your indolent rich friends. They think business only can be justified as a source of tax funds – funds that sustain the real work in life – government programs.

    I didn’t see it coming, but it’s clear now – the Democrats see Trump as an existential threat to all they hold good and holy. They cannot be reasoned with.

    Mr. Boyle,

    The "resistance" to Trump is not restricted to the Democrats or the larger left.

    At present, the most formidable enemy Trump has is the intelligence community. They've become the fourth branch of government, after the other three...Administrative, Congressional and Judicial. They derive their incredible power from the simple fact that they are unaccountable.

    I fear they'll get Trump, one way or another.

    Not going to comment on whether Trump might be impeached.

    But suppose he were to be, and the votes were there to remove him from office.

    What are the ramifications of that? Seems like they are pretty far reaching.

    First of all who would want the job if it entails a further risk like that? Even if it may not be applicable in this case, if the Senate is in the other parties hand, then you always have that fear.

    How can you actually govern with this sword hanging over your head? For the past 50 years or so we’ve been expanding the powers of the Executive branch. Who and how does anyone step in at that point to assume some of that power?

    If we are going back to the 19th century, how is a group of shadowy behind the scenes guys going to work? They meet or network at Davos to select the latest figurehead? What happens if you actually need the guy to make an “Executive” decision? Prosecute a war?

    Is there going to be someone sending the President an agenda? A set of strong guidelines?

    And have these asswipes thought this through? They assuming they going to have their dirty little hands on the reins forever? There’s always someone hungry and mean. It happens in countries all over the world where you die if you lose. It will happen here.

    As of now, all you seem to have to do to raise unholy hell is appoint a special prosecutor. That’s a pretty low bar. And even if you don’t actually intend to impeach a President, that’s an at will ability to rummage through all the documents.

    If Trump is impeached( and it's far from a given) we are all put on notice that who ever we voted for and what ever we believe about our system of government is a sham, a game, a work. We have bureaucracy, an establishment in both parties, the media, academia and a military industrial complex that want to keep the game going ad infinitum-invite, invade, borrow from forever. And said establishment will never allow anyone to change any of it, damn the cost in blood and treasure.

    Scarier yet, the establishment might not even have to cashier Trump, merely compromise him. A Middle Eastern NATO is an insane idea; NATO itself is a bad joke. The guy who rightly lambasted Obama for bombing Syria...bombs Syria. Trump gets rolled on the budget. No wall construction. We may already be there.

    Since the day Ronald Reagan went home, any illusions of a Frank Capra's Mr. Smith going to DC are long gone. But the level of cynicism of stripping things so bare with this, not clear the establishment grasps the fire they are feeding. Once the government and rule of law are so exposed, all bets are off.

    First of all who would want the job if it entails a further risk like that? Even if it may not be applicable in this case, if the Senate is in the other parties hand, then you always have that fear.

    How can you actually govern with this sword hanging over your head? For the past 50 years or so we've been expanding the powers of the Executive branch. Who and how does anyone step in at that point to assume some of that power?

    If we are going back to the 19th century, how is a group of shadowy behind the scenes guys going to work? They meet or network at Davos to select the latest figurehead? What happens if you actually need the guy to make an "Executive" decision? Prosecute a war?

    Is there going to be someone sending the President an agenda? A set of strong guidelines?

    And have these asswipes thought this through? They assuming they going to have their dirty little hands on the reins forever? There's always someone hungry and mean. It happens in countries all over the world where you die if you lose. It will happen here.

    As of now, all you seem to have to do to raise unholy hell is appoint a special prosecutor. That's a pretty low bar. And even if you don't actually intend to impeach a President, that's an at will ability to rummage through all the documents.

    I would say if Trunp is successfully impeached, it’ll do short term damage, but most significant will be the long term effects. The “deplorable” part of America will start to wake up and realize our democracy is nothing but a farce, and they’ll see the government as illegitimate. Then things will start to heat up.

  12. I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that Trump is an egotistical buffoon. I’m still glad he won the election though.

    The corrupt people who control our government are now showing us their true colors. Even though Trump has for the most part stuck his finger the collective eye of the people who voted for him, it’s still not enough for the governing elite. They just can’t let go of the fact that Trump defeated their field of lackeys in the Republican primaries and the general election.

    I think they are trying to bring Trump down as a warning to anyone else who may try to do what he did (i.e., run against the establishment and win). At this point, he has proved himself to be worthless to the people who voted for him. I hope he is impeached. That will make him a martyr to a cause he was never really part of.

    If that happens, we will then see if the core American people who are so despised by the elites (the “irredeemable deplorables”) have enough left in them to at least put up a valiant fight.

    I suspect that the answer is no and we will go the way of France. But at least the slow boil will be over.

    I like Ann Coulter’s analogy: It’s as if we’re in Chicago, and Trump says he can get us to L.A. in six days; and then for the first three days we’re driving towards New York. He can still turn around and get us to L.A. in three days. But, says Ann, she’s getting nervous.
     
    It's a good analogy. Personally I've already jumped out, but it was easier for me because my main concern is foreign policy, where Trump has made it abundantly clear he will preside over more of the same groupthink interventionist idiocy in the service of foreign interests that has prevailed for the past two decades. I can understand the continued, increasingly desperate hope of people like Derbyshire that there might still be some chance that they might yet not be utterly betrayed, though.

    And still, as commenter reiner Tor put it here a couple of days ago, Trump's most powerful enemies are still my enemies. Even though I don't see him as any solution, it's still impossible not to back him to some extent against the media and establishment globalist types and all the literally absurd, hysterical nonsense they keep pushing. At least, until someone actually worthwhile comes along.

Yes, Clinton might have gone ahead with some colossally stupid "no fly zone " aggression nonsense, but on the other hand she might not have.

    Anyway, I can understand that for Americans who are concerned more about domestic policy than foreign policy, the delay in their descent to leftist tyranny and the end of the First Amendment by having a non-leftist on the Supreme Court, and at least a pretence of resisting mass immigration for a few years, is some improvement over the alternative.

    The hysteria that won’t die down about some kind of alleged Trump collusion with Russia doesn’t speak well for the American public. The reason why the American establishment is gunning for Trump in ever more ridiculous and absurd fashion is because they think that American public will buy their stupid stories. The reason why they believe this – is because they have done it before. After decades of telling nonsensical propaganda drivel during the cold war, American establishment thinks that they know their audience, which they have conditioned to accept any outrageous lie that comes to their mind. But this is where it gets tricky, by insulting the intelligence of the American public with stupid stories that they, (the establishment) is expecting them to buy, the establishment is humiliating itself too, by showing that they are out of intelligent ideas with which to persuade the American public to buy their agenda.

    Indeed, if they can sell the sheeple on the impossible ’6m Jews, 5M others, & gas chambers’, they can probably sell them on anything.

    Who looks into this finds out that Sept 11 indeed was the ‘new Pearl Harbour’, exactly the same trick, getting the USA people ready for war.
    Then the question ‘why did Roosevelt want war ?’.
    More difficult, polio ?
    In anycase, Charles A Beard shows that from 1932 on Roosevelt wanted war, and prepared the USA for war.

    The liberal media are trying to construct a narrative, tell a fairy tale about Trump breaking the law and getting impeached, and they think if they tell this story relentlessly enough, they’ll con the rest of us into taking it for reality and actually doing it.

    Democrats are behaving this way because they realize if they don’t get rid of Trump soon, low information voters will simply grow used to him as president, and they’ll vote for him in 2020 because he’s the guy they’re familiar with. Low information voters don’t know or care about political issues; they just vote for personalities.

    The longer Trump holds the office, the more his legitimacy increases. Democrats are also upset because they have this whole idea in their heads that Trump is incompetent, and whenever he pulls off something shrewd, they pop a cork because he’s just shown them up for being a bunch of idiots. He’s also behaving more moderately that he was at first, and that’s acceptable to a lot of moderate Democrats, though not the hardliners, and the hardliners are frantic at the thought of losing hold over their party members and having them drift off into the camp of ‘Trump’s not what I wanted, but he’s less crazy than I thought, and I’ve decided he’s good enough.”

  24. I think western democracy in general is getting close to crisis point. The percentage of people who are voting is going down. Far fewer people trust the mainstream media than a generation ago. The elites continue to ignore popular opinion on crucial trade, border security and immigration matters (Trump’s rejection of the TPP being a rare example). Racial tensions are increasing again and centre-left parties are adding fuel to the fire by pandering to minority grievances.

    For one thing, we’ll probably see various movements to either get rid of the political parties or reform how they operate. Most of this trouble in regard to Trump is being stirred up by political partisans inside government.

    Oops! That’s what I get for commenting on the headline before reading the piece. Oh, well, it’s still true; you’re good at your job.

    But impeachment. Every week, I think things can’t get any crazier—the hysteria has to burn itself out, the temperature can’t get any higher, the fever has to break—and every week it’s worse. Boy, they really want to get this guy. That just gives us more reasons to defend him.

    Agreed. I’ve been thinking the same thing, more and more frequently, for months. And moreso in the last few weeks. We keep seeing the dial cranked further and further up, wondering where the maximum is. I don’t like saying that out loud, though, because it entails admitting anew that leftists are even worse scum than I knew, that the American people are even more supine than I thought.

    I don’t even bother much any more to focus on the actual thing that President Trump or one of his colleagues is supposed to have said or done. Every time, when you look closely, it’s basically nothing.

    Again, spot on. They’ve cried “wolf!” so many times that I don’t even bother checking (or wondering) now; they’re lying every time, so why bother?

    Russia, Russia, Russia. For crying out loud, Russia’s just a country. We have no great differences of interest with them. What, are they trying to reclaim Alaska? First I’ve heard of it.

    Haven’t you heard? David Brooks (he of the son in the IDF, not the American military) has declared Russia “our Adversary.” The capital “A” is the way to go, I should think – in keeping with Brooks’ desire to treat Russia like the forces of Sauron.

    It doesn’t look as though the Euros themselves are up to the job.

    I quibble, but the problem is precisely that the Euros are up to the job. And instead of doing it, they turn their attentions to squashing any potential unauthorized resistance European populations might mount against the invasion. Never attribute to incompetence what is better explained by malice.

    Still, a big majority of federal politicians are helping to drive the hysteria; and their rage against Trump is, as they say in D.C., bipartisan. Senator John McCain told CNN on Tuesday that President Trump’s troubles are, quote, “of Watergate size and scale.”

    That’s not bipartisan. McCain’s always been more traitor to the GOP, conservatives, and the right than not. His party affiliation is best described as (((Big Media))), or Israel. He sides with Democrats more often than any politician I can name. He’s far more loyal to Zion than he is to his constituents, his party, or his country.

    It’s pretty plain by now that the Republican Party Establishment is not going to forgive Donald Trump for humiliating them last year. They’ll be just as happy as Democrats to see him go, if they can somehow help the Democrats force him out without showing too much outward enthusiasm.

    If they weren’t completely supine to Big Media, would they really be the GOPe? The cuck is strong with them.

    From what I’ve seen there has been zero reflection on the part of Republican leaders on how much the base’s views differ from theirs and what to do about it. The GOP is not at all refiguring its stands.

    Has there been any reflection among GOP leaders in the nine months since, about the meaning of Trump’s victory? Not much that I can see.

    “When the voters come to me with bags of money like the Zionists/Globalists do, then we can talk refiguring.”

    Sixty-three million Americans rejected establishment politics last November. They took a chance on an outsider. From a field of seventeen seasoned Republican politicians, GOP primary voters selected the one un-seasoned guy. Then sixty-three million of us voted for him in the general.

    Does the GOP get this? Have they learned anything from it? Not that I can see.

    Struggle of wills. One outsider looking to drain the swamp may not force the elite to heel. Two might not. But I bet five would. Looks like we’re going to have to keep sending the message, good and hard, until it sinks in. Until reformer after reformer finally win in the aggregate, through attrition.

    Why didn’t we vote for Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush in the primaries, as you wise elders wanted us to? We’re sorry! We promise to follow your advice in future!”

    I may be thinking wishfully, but I think that millions and millions of voters are watching this play out, and it’s hardening their resolve. They’re going to want to fuck the GOPe even harder next time.

    I read a series of articles in Esquire magazine thirty years ago. They picked some successful but obscure business man and asked the question - "Why isn't this man the President?"

    It was a good question. Now we are learning the answer. A businessman can't be President because the Democrats are too outraged by the idea. The party of government (the Democrats) find the idea of a man from private industry to be an obscenity.

    Hillary Clinton tried very hard to get the electorate to get excited about a woman candidate. But female heads of state are common elsewhere. America hasn't had a female President and that's a bit of an anomaly. The reason seems to be that no credible female candidates have run. There have been a number of female senators, congressmen and governors. There is no effort to exclude women from public office. But the Democrats are horrified my the idea that a person from private enterprise could dare to hold the Presidency.

    Some of the reason for the Democrats revulsion about Trump and private industry candidates is simply Marxism. They think of people from the business world as the boogy-man. They assume that if you want to lower taxes you are just trying to let more money become available for your indolent rich friends. They think business only can be justified as a source of tax funds - funds that sustain the real work in life - government programs.

    I didn't see it coming, but it's clear now - the Democrats see Trump as an existential threat to all they hold good and holy. They cannot be reasoned with.

    Speaking of “no credible female candidates” , it’s possible (though I wouldn’t necessarily make book on it) that in 2020 the demokrats may consider as the “candidate of the people” the Indian Princess, Hocapontas Warren, whose resume’ consists of Harvard Law School professor and serving as demokrat hack.

    I’m not surprised at either the delays or even derailments of some items of his agenda. Some were wishful thinking. Some were B.S. campaign sloganeering. Some have already been accomplished.

    For the me the very most important thing was to NOT elect Hillary Clinton as I believe that had she been elected we’d be at war with nuclear-armed Russia already. Trump, as bad as he is, won’t bring on the Apocalypse Hillary had in mind. Of that, I’m quite certain.

    I read a series of articles in Esquire magazine thirty years ago. They picked some successful but obscure business man and asked the question - "Why isn't this man the President?"

    It was a good question. Now we are learning the answer. A businessman can't be President because the Democrats are too outraged by the idea. The party of government (the Democrats) find the idea of a man from private industry to be an obscenity.

    Hillary Clinton tried very hard to get the electorate to get excited about a woman candidate. But female heads of state are common elsewhere. America hasn't had a female President and that's a bit of an anomaly. The reason seems to be that no credible female candidates have run. There have been a number of female senators, congressmen and governors. There is no effort to exclude women from public office. But the Democrats are horrified my the idea that a person from private enterprise could dare to hold the Presidency.

    Some of the reason for the Democrats revulsion about Trump and private industry candidates is simply Marxism. They think of people from the business world as the boogy-man. They assume that if you want to lower taxes you are just trying to let more money become available for your indolent rich friends. They think business only can be justified as a source of tax funds - funds that sustain the real work in life - government programs.

    I didn't see it coming, but it's clear now - the Democrats see Trump as an existential threat to all they hold good and holy. They cannot be reasoned with.

    Mr. Boyle,

    The “resistance” to Trump is not restricted to the Democrats or the larger left.

    At present, the most formidable enemy Trump has is the intelligence community. They’ve become the fourth branch of government, after the other three…Administrative, Congressional and Judicial. They derive their incredible power from the simple fact that they are unaccountable.

    I fear they’ll get Trump, one way or another.

    Not going to comment on whether Trump might be impeached.

    But suppose he were to be, and the votes were there to remove him from office.

    What are the ramifications of that? Seems like they are pretty far reaching.

    First of all who would want the job if it entails a further risk like that? Even if it may not be applicable in this case, if the Senate is in the other parties hand, then you always have that fear.

    How can you actually govern with this sword hanging over your head? For the past 50 years or so we've been expanding the powers of the Executive branch. Who and how does anyone step in at that point to assume some of that power?

    If we are going back to the 19th century, how is a group of shadowy behind the scenes guys going to work? They meet or network at Davos to select the latest figurehead? What happens if you actually need the guy to make an "Executive" decision? Prosecute a war?

    Is there going to be someone sending the President an agenda? A set of strong guidelines?

    And have these asswipes thought this through? They assuming they going to have their dirty little hands on the reins forever? There's always someone hungry and mean. It happens in countries all over the world where you die if you lose. It will happen here.

    As of now, all you seem to have to do to raise unholy hell is appoint a special prosecutor. That's a pretty low bar. And even if you don't actually intend to impeach a President, that's an at will ability to rummage through all the documents.

    If Trump is impeached( and it’s far from a given) we are all put on notice that who ever we voted for and what ever we believe about our system of government is a sham, a game, a work. We have bureaucracy, an establishment in both parties, the media, academia and a military industrial complex that want to keep the game going ad infinitum-invite, invade, borrow from forever. And said establishment will never allow anyone to change any of it, damn the cost in blood and treasure.

    Scarier yet, the establishment might not even have to cashier Trump, merely compromise him. A Middle Eastern NATO is an insane idea; NATO itself is a bad joke. The guy who rightly lambasted Obama for bombing Syria…bombs Syria. Trump gets rolled on the budget. No wall construction. We may already be there.

    Since the day Ronald Reagan went home, any illusions of a Frank Capra’s Mr. Smith going to DC are long gone. But the level of cynicism of stripping things so bare with this, not clear the establishment grasps the fire they are feeding. Once the government and rule of law are so exposed, all bets are off.

    There’s no evidence of wrongdoing by Trump but that hasn’t stopped the radical left and their strange bedfellows within the Republican party.

    Ann Coulter is probably kicking herself for titling her book In Trump we Trust given all of his broken campaign promises documented in this article. Worse, most were broken within his first 100 days in office.

    True, it’s not too late but it looks like all we’re going to get is enforcement of some current immigration laws while failing to rescind unconstitutional DACA that he promised to do “on day one”. He’s expressed no desire to end birthright citizenship, dramatically decrease legal immigration or enact an immigration moratorium. Worse, the big, badass real estate negotiator has let himself be pushed around by the federal judiciary on immigration matters when they have no jurisdiction to do so.

    Draining the swamp has amounted to firing James Comey. Big whoop. Supposedly his cabinet has more Goldman Sachs alums than any previous administration and I don’t think they have Main Street’s best interest in mind.

    On foreign policy, rather than a clean break from the past 16 years as he promised, he has instead take over as captain of the RMS Neoconservative and is merely taking us on a more circuitous route into the iceberg. Now he’s cozying up to the Wahabi fanatics of Saudi Arabia who have a deplorable human rights record, have provided material and financial support to ISIS and are waging a bloody, unrelenting war against Houthi civilians in Yemen.

    It seems he just agrees with anyone with a few stars on their chest or any Jew with ties to the Likud party of Israel.

    Did white people steal everything?

    In a way, Yes.

    They stole the secrets of the gods in Promethean manner & unlocked the mysteries of the universe.

    Whites unlocked the secrets of micro-organisms and how diseases happen.
    Whites gazed into distant space and discovered galaxies and black holes.
    Whites discovered the mechanism of atoms and harnessed nuclear energy.
    Whites solved the secret of flight and gained mastery of the sky.
    Whites cracked the secret codes of higher morality and envisioned a world of order & liberty.

    So, white people stole the secrets, ideas, and values that had once belonged only to the gods. Whites stole the keys to the countless mysteries that had baffled, mystified, or frightened the rest of humanity.
    And by unlocking the secrets known only to the gods, white people spread the higher & deeper truth to all of mankind. If not for whites, would any race be flying through the skies or probing the secrets of viruses?

    That is Power. It began when Prometheus stole fire from the gods.

    The real secret of white power is not that whites stole from non-whites. Whites ‘stole’ only crude rudiments like land and labor from non-whites. Every people stole such from other peoples since the beginning of time.
    What set whites apart from the rest is they mastered the art of picking the locks of the gods & the cosmos and walked away with priceless treasures of knowledge.

    You can steal land from red savages and labor from black savages. It takes no genius to conquer territory or enslave others. All peoples could do that and did that.

    But you can steal the art of navigation, art of medicine, art of flight, and the art of nuclear power only from the gods. Other peoples feared, worshiped, or pondered the gods. Only whites dared to access the secret vault of the gods holding the secrets of everything from the smallest atoms to the biggest stars.

    The liberal media are trying to construct a narrative, tell a fairy tale about Trump breaking the law and getting impeached, and they think if they tell this story relentlessly enough, they'll con the rest of us into taking it for reality and actually doing it.

    Democrats are behaving this way because they realize if they don't get rid of Trump soon, low information voters will simply grow used to him as president, and they'll vote for him in 2020 because he's the guy they're familiar with. Low information voters don't know or care about political issues; they just vote for personalities.

    The longer Trump holds the office, the more his legitimacy increases. Democrats are also upset because they have this whole idea in their heads that Trump is incompetent, and whenever he pulls off something shrewd, they pop a cork because he's just shown them up for being a bunch of idiots. He's also behaving more moderately that he was at first, and that's acceptable to a lot of moderate Democrats, though not the hardliners, and the hardliners are frantic at the thought of losing hold over their party members and having them drift off into the camp of 'Trump's not what I wanted, but he's less crazy than I thought, and I've decided he's good enough."

I conjecture that on the night of Nov. 8th, when it became clear that Trump was coasting towards an electoral victory, the Democratic Party began some emergency meetings in the smoke-filled back room of Hillary’s campaign headquarters and strategized about how to salvage the Deep State’s (and their own) hold on power. That is why Hillary could not make a concession speech that night. The strategy was not yet solidified.

    knowing that she was suffering damage from her private server fiasco and the Wikileaks revelations, the democrats reached into the Alinkskyite playbook for the tried and true tu quoque response: turn the accusation back on the accuser. The next morning when Hillary finally gave her concession speech, she made sure to plant the seeds of the attack that would follow. To quote her own words, she specifically attributed her electoral misfortune to a “coordinated cyber attack.”

    It first became necessary to deflect attention from the contents of Hillary’s leaked emails by painting the leak itself as a crime of much graver proportions than her obvious security breaches and influence-peddling. That in itself is ridiculous, but this is how the game works. Only one bogeyman was large enough, strong enough, amorphous enough, and far enough away from the understanding of the ordinary American to be plausibly blamed for the leak: Russia.

    The first version of the story had it that Russia had hacked both DNC and RNC servers but had only leaked material from the DNC in a deliberate effort to discredit Hillary. (Again, the fact that the material was discrediting in the first place seems to be beside the point.) But this story was invalidated when Reince Priebus made it clear that the RNC was never hacked. Furthermore, it then became widely known that the so-called DNC “hack” came about directly as a result of a phishing attack on John Podesta that had nothing to do with the Russians, so neither leg of this particular story will stand.

    Undeterred, the Democrats, now operating in concert with the Deep State to delegitimatize Trump’s election, proceeded to suborn James Comey and enlist the services of the rest of their toadies scattered throughout the government establishment. The offensive against General Michael Flynn was the first wave of this assault. Flynn’s crime was apparently assuring the Russian ambassador that the new administration coming into power in Washington would have a different approach to Russian-American relations. This was neither an illegal nor an imprudent thing to do, but in the atmosphere of ginned-up suspicion regarding “Russian meddling,” it was used to slander Flynn as a foreign agent. Trump very inadvisedly cucked on this issue and fired Michael Flynn, which only seemed to cement the admission of guilt.

    The Deep State claimed another victory when they bullied AG Jeff Sessions into recusing himself from “any and all investigations pertaining to the campaign.” That bought them all the breathing room they needed to run wild with the phony “Russian hacking” story without having to worry about a DoJ investigation into their own malfeasance.

    Next, their was Congressional testimony from a slough of Deep State intelligence professionals in which the Russian hacking story was treated as an established fact. “This is not fake news. This is what they did to us,” said one of them whose name escapes me at the moment. This was an obviously orchestrated, stilted, and fabricated act of theater by the establishment, but it feel rather flat and was washed out of the news cycle in less than a day, so it generated very little interest.

    The fact that the whole US intelligence community is behind this phony-baloney story, despite the fact that there isn’t a shred of evidence for it, despite the fact that high-profile individuals like James Clapper are carefully to hedge their testimony in such a way that they cannot be construed as saying anything directly accusatory, is rather curious. As everyone can plainly see, it is only consistent with a systematic campaign to pressure, frustrate, and ultimately destroy President Trump. Additionally, it has the side effect of further stigmatizing Russia, the destruction of which is the NeoZioLibs’ ultimate objective. But the degree of coordination between the various federal agencies, the news media, and the DNC indicates that there is one unifying force behind this all. That leads directly to the question of who is capable of such a thing. Whos is doing this? Who is Kaiser Soze?

    Bill Clinton is Kaiser Soze. The sleaziness of this particular campaign is consistent with his well-established MO of dragging the highest institutions of the country through the mud of his personal power-politics. He has no qualms in bringing us to the brink of nuclear war with Russia in order to advance a fictitious hacking narrative, as indicated by his fiasco in Kosovo which, as president, he initiated to deflect attention from the Monica Lewinsky scandal. He has the ability to coordinate the illegal activities of key personnel placed throughout the Deep State, as evidenced by his tarmac meeting tete-a-tete with Loretta Lynch. He has all the means and all the contacts necessary to move his agenda through the instrumentality of the Clinton Foundation, which could best be described as a shadow government. He has the strongest possible motives for doing so, because he’s trying to keep himself, his wife, and all his friends from spending the rest of their pathetic lives in federal prison for their many crimes against the country.

    If Trump is interested in keeping his hold on power and fulfilling any of his campaign promises at all, he needs to bring down the Clinton cabal. He needs to arrest them all, perp-walk them, throw the book at them, and make sure that none of them ever see the light of day ever again, because they will not stop attacking him until they destroy him.

    That's a powerful post! I've just read something that usefully complements it about Comey's (alleged) role . It is on Jerry Pournelle's "Chaos Manor" site (linked to on Vox Day's "Vox Popoli" site).
    Here's an excerpt:

    If Hillary had won, Comey would have kept right on providing cover for the corruption of the Clinton machine.  He would have kept the FBI paralyzed, prevented the Clinton Fund from being investigated, and continued to do his job as the Clinton’s personal scandal eraser at the FBI.
    BUT TRUMP WON.
    The Swamp and its bottom-dwelling denizens realize they are at risk from this political outsider who is not connected to the uni-party machines.  Before Trump takes office, a “failsafe” plan is implemented to ruin Trump’s administration and try to force him out of the Presidency.  The key players committed to the plan are the democrat politicians, the RINO establishment, the media, the Obama-Clinton operatives imbedded throughout the intelligence agencies and the entire bureaucracy, and most importantly, the Obama DOJ and JAMES COMEY.    The scheme is to smear Trump with Russian “connections,” through a fake FBI “investigation” and more importantly, to trap him into a charge of criminal interference with the FBI.   COMEY IS THE CENTRAL FIGURE IN THE SCHEME TO TAKE DOWN TRUMP.

    Subject: More…… California Dem Party Convention…”Fuck Trump.”

    It is hard to psychologize this adolescent behavior. You can be certain that the California Dem Convention included many blacks and browns, who were intellectually well equipped to understand the Middle Finger, as well as the putatively white Youth of the TV and Internet Generation, long exposed to vulgarity from Jewish hosts…like Stern or Colbert, or Stewart, plus other gentile slobs slinging their sexual filth like randy monkeys in heat.

    Behold The Man.

    I guess part of their problematic is the lack of any evidence of Trump misdemeanors, including Russia-loving, and, and…uh?.. what are they again?
    Much ado about noting…nothing. Hence the tantrums of putative adults like Pelosi and Burton, invite wonder, bemusement. What the hell is going on here? Pelosi recently stated that indeed there was no evidence of any Trump Russianizing, and her face here looks a bit reluctant and embarrassed at the wandering social fingers of Burton, the old Dem warhorse of the SF Bay Area, maybe going a bit over the top in his dotage.

    Yet, it is all amusing I guess, sort of like watching a disaster unfolding, the degradation of the Dem Party, as it reduces itself to brat and juvenile delinquent behavior. The included text has the Maxine Waters crowd getting black rowdy, shouting ’bout whatever.

    With the Maxine Waters gorilla capers that you could not make up without vast experience in the ghetto…always providing more humor of the even more grotesque sort…her everted lips shooting forward
    with the im-’Peach’ projection like she’s spitting tobacco. I also like the way “Russia” snarls forth in froth. Hate?? The new slogan I saw at my bank’s agitprop monitor this week is “Beyond Diversity, Embrace Diversity.” Embrace Maxine, Smell the Roses.

    Or smell the guns; they are coming..

    you might wonder how much further into the gutter the Dems can wallow, but they can go deeper… into the sewers with their hatreds. It will not be long before somebody gets killed. And that will go down in history as the opening shot in the US Second Civil War.

    I think it’s getting safer and safer to say that a Trump reelection isn’t in the cards. Not quite at 100% “safe” yet, but we’re getting there. And he may develop a Lyndon Johnson attitude about reelection after four years, if he hasn’t already.

    The media has conflation working for them in a way they never have before. Trump says and does stupid things – the most conspicuous recent example that comes to mind is telling the press that he can declassify and give the Russians whatever information he wants…a day after his aides told the press that they didn’t hear him give any classified info to the Russians. But as John and others have said, there’s nothing of real substance. Most of the stuff is at the same level of credibility as the old six pointed star and Nazi-salute-by-suppoters fake news that was reported during the campaign.

    His bumbling at public relations doesn’t mean he’s bumbling at the presidency. Not entirely, anyway. The worst things he’s done is back off on campaign promises, like NAFTA or DACA deportations. We can’t forget, however, that ICE is (apparently) rounding up illegals and sending them back to Mexico in record numbers.

    The biggest issue will be the wall, and I can’t figure out where that stands. If there’s a wall, it will be harder for Trump’s successors to reverse immigration policy without obviously appearing to actively support illegal immigration.

  85. I’m beginning to apostacize on Trump. The most recent blow was the extension of lawful status to Haitians (as a result of an earthquake that happened seven years ago). All the Trump Administration had to do was nothing, and the deportations could have begun. But it acted to extend lawful status. Evidently even Donald Trump can’t face the “optics” of families being sent back to where they belong: crying women and children. And Haitians compete with Somalians for the status of the most worthless immigrant/refugee group in the U.S. So, while there may be deportations of male criminals, Mestizo and Amerincian women and children (the true dispossessors) will be left alone. If there’s ever a Wall, it’ll be part of a deal for more Mestizos, Amerindians, Indian subcontinent inhabitants and Chinese to further dispossess European-origin Americans. Add to that the spectacle of Trump basically groveling at the feet of the Saudis, now it’s off the Jerusalem to pay homage to the Jews at the Western Wall, and then a visit to the anti-Christ in the Vatican.

    Has Trump outlived his usefulness to those of us on the Alt-Right? Would his removal by impeachment or the 25th Amendment be worse than his increasingly-obvious betrayal of European-origin Americans. He might be more valuable as a political martyr, as a symbol to European-origin Americans that the present political and constitutional system no longer offers any hope for their survival. There were principled members of the Alt-Right who supported Hillary Clinton for precisely this reason. The removal of Donald Trump might clear the way for a genuine “White Identitarian,” to advocate for European-origin American survival.

    I think it's vitally important for those of us on the Alt-Right to lead the charge to get rid of Trump. He basically stole our victory. He campaigned on our ideas and he won by our efforts, and it's been one stab in the back after another ever since. We can't let him do that to us or to Western culture.

    Since Trump was our last chance to change the system from within, the betrayal is especially poignant. We actually won!---just think about that. The White Western Identitarians actually defeated the Deep State, but then our candidate betrayed us. If this isn't a tragedy I don't know what is.

    Don't agree with this at all. Have you ever actually BEEN to Haiti? Haitians in the US send a lot of money home to Haiti and support many Haitians who are in Haiti. Just wholesale deporting them all from the US would just create a further humanitarian disaster in Haiti with no benefit gained for the US. Also I don't agree about Haitians being a worthless group. The ones I know are hard working and conscientious, devout Christians, and in most respect more socially valuable than all the meth-head crackers whom we ought to send to Haiti.

    "And Haitians compete with Somalians for the status of the most worthless immigrant/refugee group in the U.S."

    Thank you for your opinion on this matter. But given your own heritage, it is clear you have to go back.

    "If there’s ever a Wall, it’ll be part of a deal for more Mestizos, Amerindians, Indian subcontinent inhabitants and Chinese to further dispossess European-origin Americans."

    Considering that Europeans dispossessed tribal groups, it is only poetic justice, right? Might makes right. Social Darwinism at its zenith.

    "Add to that the spectacle of Trump basically groveling at the feet of the Saudis, now it’s off the Jerusalem to pay homage to the Jews at the Western Wall, and then a visit to the anti-Christ in the Vatican."

    Corrected for accuracy --> Trump made an arms deal with Saudi Arabia, talked to Jewish leaders about how they keep out the riff raff, and spoke to the leader of the Christian free world at the Vatican.

    "Would his removal by impeachment or the 25th Amendment be worse than his increasingly-obvious betrayal of European-origin Americans."

    Except most white Americans do not directly and constantly refer to themselves as "European-origin Americans", just as Americans.

    "The removal of Donald Trump might clear the way for a genuine “White Identitarian,” to advocate for European-origin American survival."

    The hysteria that won’t die down about some kind of alleged Trump collusion with Russia doesn’t speak well for the American public. The reason why the American establishment is gunning for Trump in ever more ridiculous and absurd fashion is because they think that American public will buy their stupid stories. The reason why they believe this – is because they have done it before. After decades of telling nonsensical propaganda drivel during the cold war, American establishment thinks that they know their audience, which they have conditioned to accept any outrageous lie that comes to their mind. But this is where it gets tricky, by insulting the intelligence of the American public with stupid stories that they, (the establishment) is expecting them to buy, the establishment is humiliating itself too, by showing that they are out of intelligent ideas with which to persuade the American public to buy their agenda.

    When MAJ Nicholson was shot down like a dog in E. Germany by a Soviet soldier, was the account of that propaganda drivel?

    Few of us who understand how a representative republic works ever thought that Trump could live up to all his campaign promises. A President will encounter both head winds and tail winds and sideways winds trying to get anything done.

    I'm not surprised at either the delays or even derailments of some items of his agenda. Some were wishful thinking. Some were B.S. campaign sloganeering. Some have already been accomplished.

    For the me the very most important thing was to NOT elect Hillary Clinton as I believe that had she been elected we'd be at war with nuclear-armed Russia already. Trump, as bad as he is, won't bring on the Apocalypse Hillary had in mind. Of that, I'm quite certain.

    Very good point.

    Trump was given to saying “I am going to ________” as though Congressional support on each point was just a given. He was cruisin’ for a bruisin’ there.

    He is still doing some good stuff, however, and, as you emphasize, DJT is the Un-Hillary. Thank you, Jesus.

    I'm beginning to apostacize on Trump. The most recent blow was the extension of lawful status to Haitians (as a result of an earthquake that happened seven years ago). All the Trump Administration had to do was nothing, and the deportations could have begun. But it acted to extend lawful status. Evidently even Donald Trump can't face the "optics" of families being sent back to where they belong: crying women and children. And Haitians compete with Somalians for the status of the most worthless immigrant/refugee group in the U.S. So, while there may be deportations of male criminals, Mestizo and Amerincian women and children (the true dispossessors) will be left alone. If there's ever a Wall, it'll be part of a deal for more Mestizos, Amerindians, Indian subcontinent inhabitants and Chinese to further dispossess European-origin Americans. Add to that the spectacle of Trump basically groveling at the feet of the Saudis, now it's off the Jerusalem to pay homage to the Jews at the Western Wall, and then a visit to the anti-Christ in the Vatican.

    Has Trump outlived his usefulness to those of us on the Alt-Right? Would his removal by impeachment or the 25th Amendment be worse than his increasingly-obvious betrayal of European-origin Americans. He might be more valuable as a political martyr, as a symbol to European-origin Americans that the present political and constitutional system no longer offers any hope for their survival. There were principled members of the Alt-Right who supported Hillary Clinton for precisely this reason. The removal of Donald Trump might clear the way for a genuine "White Identitarian," to advocate for European-origin American survival.

    Has Trump outlived his usefulness to those of us on the Alt-Right?

    I think it’s vitally important for those of us on the Alt-Right to lead the charge to get rid of Trump. He basically stole our victory. He campaigned on our ideas and he won by our efforts, and it’s been one stab in the back after another ever since. We can’t let him do that to us or to Western culture.

    Since Trump was our last chance to change the system from within, the betrayal is especially poignant. We actually won!—just think about that. The White Western Identitarians actually defeated the Deep State, but then our candidate betrayed us. If this isn’t a tragedy I don’t know what is.

    We must not only keep fighting, we must call down the wrath of Heaven on those who did this.

    Don’t agree with this at all. Have you ever actually BEEN to Haiti? Haitians in the US send a lot of money home to Haiti and support many Haitians who are in Haiti. Just wholesale deporting them all from the US would just create a further humanitarian disaster in Haiti with no benefit gained for the US. Also I don’t agree about Haitians being a worthless group. The ones I know are hard working and conscientious, devout Christians, and in most respect more socially valuable than all the meth-head crackers whom we ought to send to Haiti.

    I conjecture that on the night of Nov. 8th, when it became clear that Trump was coasting towards an electoral victory, the Democratic Party began some emergency meetings in the smoke-filled back room of Hillary's campaign headquarters and strategized about how to salvage the Deep State's (and their own) hold on power. That is why Hillary could not make a concession speech that night. The strategy was not yet solidified.

    knowing that she was suffering damage from her private server fiasco and the Wikileaks revelations, the democrats reached into the Alinkskyite playbook for the tried and true tu quoque response: turn the accusation back on the accuser. The next morning when Hillary finally gave her concession speech, she made sure to plant the seeds of the attack that would follow. To quote her own words, she specifically attributed her electoral misfortune to a "coordinated cyber attack."

    It first became necessary to deflect attention from the contents of Hillary's leaked emails by painting the leak itself as a crime of much graver proportions than her obvious security breaches and influence-peddling. That in itself is ridiculous, but this is how the game works. Only one bogeyman was large enough, strong enough, amorphous enough, and far enough away from the understanding of the ordinary American to be plausibly blamed for the leak: Russia.

    The first version of the story had it that Russia had hacked both DNC and RNC servers but had only leaked material from the DNC in a deliberate effort to discredit Hillary. (Again, the fact that the material was discrediting in the first place seems to be beside the point.) But this story was invalidated when Reince Priebus made it clear that the RNC was never hacked. Furthermore, it then became widely known that the so-called DNC "hack" came about directly as a result of a phishing attack on John Podesta that had nothing to do with the Russians, so neither leg of this particular story will stand.

    Undeterred, the Democrats, now operating in concert with the Deep State to delegitimatize Trump's election, proceeded to suborn James Comey and enlist the services of the rest of their toadies scattered throughout the government establishment. The offensive against General Michael Flynn was the first wave of this assault. Flynn's crime was apparently assuring the Russian ambassador that the new administration coming into power in Washington would have a different approach to Russian-American relations. This was neither an illegal nor an imprudent thing to do, but in the atmosphere of ginned-up suspicion regarding "Russian meddling," it was used to slander Flynn as a foreign agent. Trump very inadvisedly cucked on this issue and fired Michael Flynn, which only seemed to cement the admission of guilt.

    The Deep State claimed another victory when they bullied AG Jeff Sessions into recusing himself from "any and all investigations pertaining to the campaign." That bought them all the breathing room they needed to run wild with the phony "Russian hacking" story without having to worry about a DoJ investigation into their own malfeasance.

    Next, their was Congressional testimony from a slough of Deep State intelligence professionals in which the Russian hacking story was treated as an established fact. "This is not fake news. This is what they did to us," said one of them whose name escapes me at the moment. This was an obviously orchestrated, stilted, and fabricated act of theater by the establishment, but it feel rather flat and was washed out of the news cycle in less than a day, so it generated very little interest.

    The fact that the whole US intelligence community is behind this phony-baloney story, despite the fact that there isn't a shred of evidence for it, despite the fact that high-profile individuals like James Clapper are carefully to hedge their testimony in such a way that they cannot be construed as saying anything directly accusatory, is rather curious. As everyone can plainly see, it is only consistent with a systematic campaign to pressure, frustrate, and ultimately destroy President Trump. Additionally, it has the side effect of further stigmatizing Russia, the destruction of which is the NeoZioLibs' ultimate objective. But the degree of coordination between the various federal agencies, the news media, and the DNC indicates that there is one unifying force behind this all. That leads directly to the question of who is capable of such a thing. Whos is doing this? Who is Kaiser Soze?

    Bill Clinton is Kaiser Soze. The sleaziness of this particular campaign is consistent with his well-established MO of dragging the highest institutions of the country through the mud of his personal power-politics. He has no qualms in bringing us to the brink of nuclear war with Russia in order to advance a fictitious hacking narrative, as indicated by his fiasco in Kosovo which, as president, he initiated to deflect attention from the Monica Lewinsky scandal. He has the ability to coordinate the illegal activities of key personnel placed throughout the Deep State, as evidenced by his tarmac meeting tete-a-tete with Loretta Lynch. He has all the means and all the contacts necessary to move his agenda through the instrumentality of the Clinton Foundation, which could best be described as a shadow government. He has the strongest possible motives for doing so, because he's trying to keep himself, his wife, and all his friends from spending the rest of their pathetic lives in federal prison for their many crimes against the country.

    If Trump is interested in keeping his hold on power and fulfilling any of his campaign promises at all, he needs to bring down the Clinton cabal. He needs to arrest them all, perp-walk them, throw the book at them, and make sure that none of them ever see the light of day ever again, because they will not stop attacking him until they destroy him.

    That’s a powerful post! I’ve just read something that usefully complements it about Comey’s (alleged) role . It is on Jerry Pournelle’s “Chaos Manor” site (linked to on Vox Day’s “Vox Popoli” site).
    Here’s an excerpt:

    If Hillary had won, Comey would have kept right on providing cover for the corruption of the Clinton machine.  He would have kept the FBI paralyzed, prevented the Clinton Fund from being investigated, and continued to do his job as the Clinton’s personal scandal eraser at the FBI.
    BUT TRUMP WON.
    The Swamp and its bottom-dwelling denizens realize they are at risk from this political outsider who is not connected to the uni-party machines.  Before Trump takes office, a “failsafe” plan is implemented to ruin Trump’s administration and try to force him out of the Presidency.  The key players committed to the plan are the democrat politicians, the RINO establishment, the media, the Obama-Clinton operatives imbedded throughout the intelligence agencies and the entire bureaucracy, and most importantly, the Obama DOJ and JAMES COMEY.    The scheme is to smear Trump with Russian “connections,” through a fake FBI “investigation” and more importantly, to trap him into a charge of criminal interference with the FBI.   COMEY IS THE CENTRAL FIGURE IN THE SCHEME TO TAKE DOWN TRUMP.

Add to that the spectacle of Trump basically groveling at the feet of the Saudis, now it's off the Jerusalem to pay homage to the Jews at the Western Wall, and then a visit to the anti-Christ in the Vatican.

    Has Trump outlived his usefulness to those of us on the Alt-Right? Would his removal by impeachment or the 25th Amendment be worse than his increasingly-obvious betrayal of European-origin Americans. He might be more valuable as a political martyr, as a symbol to European-origin Americans that the present political and constitutional system no longer offers any hope for their survival. There were principled members of the Alt-Right who supported Hillary Clinton for precisely this reason.

    “And Haitians compete with Somalians for the status of the most worthless immigrant/refugee group in the U.S.”

    Thank you for your opinion on this matter. But given your own heritage, it is clear you have to go back.

    “If there’s ever a Wall, it’ll be part of a deal for more Mestizos, Amerindians, Indian subcontinent inhabitants and Chinese to further dispossess European-origin Americans.”

    Considering that Europeans dispossessed tribal groups, it is only poetic justice, right? Might makes right. Social Darwinism at its zenith.

    “Add to that the spectacle of Trump basically groveling at the feet of the Saudis, now it’s off the Jerusalem to pay homage to the Jews at the Western Wall, and then a visit to the anti-Christ in the Vatican.”

    Corrected for accuracy –> Trump made an arms deal with Saudi Arabia, talked to Jewish leaders about how they keep out the riff raff, and spoke to the leader of the Christian free world at the Vatican.

    “Would his removal by impeachment or the 25th Amendment be worse than his increasingly-obvious betrayal of European-origin Americans.”

    Except most white Americans do not directly and constantly refer to themselves as “European-origin Americans”, just as Americans.

    “The removal of Donald Trump might clear the way for a genuine “White Identitarian,” to advocate for European-origin American survival.”

You know what kind of Ace you are? You are Ace way off Base.

    Thanks, friend. I lost a childhood friend who was an officer in the S. African army. Killed by a B-40 rocket on the Angola border. Fired by a communist or supplied by a communist.

    Then there was the account in Gen. Singlaub's autobiography of his friend the Nationalist Chinese air force officer who was captured by the Chicoms and skinned alive. And our reconnaissance air craft shot down by the Sovs over international waters.

    I remember all that.

  104. It seems that alongside this “crazed quest” to bring down Trump, “Transparent” Obama had for years routinely violated privacy protections in order to illegally spy on American citizens. This is according to a report at the Circa.com site, which I found this morning through a link on the very useful Infogalactic News site.

    From Circa.com, here are the headline and opening paragraphs of the report:

    Obama intel agency secretly conducted illegal searches on Americans for years
    by John Solomon and Sara Carter
    May 25, 2017

    The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall, according to once top-secret documents that chronicle some of the most serious constitutional abuses to date by the U.S. intelligence community.

    More than 5 percent, or one out of every 20 searches seeking upstream Internet data on Americans inside the NSA’s so-called Section 702 database violated the safeguards Obama and his intelligence chiefs vowed to follow in 2011, according to one classified internal report reviewed by Circa.

    A later reference to Susan Rice in the report is of interest:

    Officials like former National Security Adviser Susan Rice have argued their activities were legal under the so-called minimization rule changes Obama made, and that the intelligence agencies were strictly monitored to avoid abuses.
    The intelligence court and the NSA’s own internal watchdog found that not to be true.

  105. Sure, there was propaganda and lies during the Cold War, but at least communism was worthy of opposition. People accepted a lot of what turned out to be BS because the proposed purpose, containing and defeating communism, was a very worthy and moral goal. What is worthy and moral about the currently expressed purposes of the Globalist ruling class? Globalism is at least as evil as communism, probably a lot more so, being a form of communism itself. Is pushing sodomy and transgenderism and Islam a good idea to any normal human being? I think the propaganda worked better during the Cold War because the supposed premises were superior. If the Globalists had better apparent purposes in mind they might be getting more cooperation, don’t you think?

Limbaugh and company certainly entertain. But a steady diet of ideological comfort food is no substitute for hearty intellectual fare.
Once as a colonial project, now as a moral playground, the ancient continent remains the object of Great Power maneuvering
