The arrogance, narcissism and envy that characterized the outgoing Obama regime never ceases to amaze me. Throw in the unnecessary hazards that follow such Caligulan petulance and we can imagine what the summation the historians will draw about this sorry Administration.
Think of it, in accusing the Russian Federation of “hacking”, these United States are toying with the idea of war. Make no mistake, that’s what these countermeasures imply. Actual hostilities could ensue. Luckily, they won’t.
Why? Because both Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump can see right through Obama. They both, in their own way and in their own bailiwicks, took an accurate measure of the effete man that our disgruntled minorities (and hapless Republicans) put into office eight long years ago.
A “community organizer” of no significant accomplishment, he was steered into the highest office in the land by Globalists who believed that through him, they could turn these United States into a useful internationalist puppet. They were right –at least for awhile. Where they erred is in not grasping the reality of ethnos, of tribe, of blood. Obama was for them a symbol of what they wanted the world to be: bi-racial, multicultural and vaguely spiritual. A mulatto whose love for Islam would seep into the broader American narrative.
Or so it was hoped. For me, this picture says it all.
Honorable mention must go to Nigel Farage. Thanks to the success of his United Kingdom Independence Party we saw for the first time cracks in this impossible, new unicorn-and-rainbow utopia that the Globalists had planned for us.
The Brexit presaged a brighter future for ordinary folk everywhere. Trump, to the consternation of the GOP elite saw this and kept on fighting even when Nate Silver, the pollsters and the rest of the Best and the Brightest told us that it was over, that a Madame President was our future. That the jackboot of Political Correctness would forever be pressed against our throats. That our final words would always be “I love Big Brother.”
The Lord was merciful indeed.
That being said, Obama has exactly three weeks to go. He can do a lot of damage in three weeks. This latest demarche against Putin is a case in point. Wars have commenced over less.
Nor is Trump without his own power. To be sure, he has no authority whatsoever as President-elect under the Constitution. And yet, in some platonic way and through a variety of ruses, he is making it known that he is already President.
Think of it: does it not seem strange that former opponents are making the trek to the Trump Tower seeking favor? Is it not interesting that business and banking magnates have announced plans for new initiatives in America? That jobs once scheduled for Mexico are staying in the Rust Belt? Or that on his “Thank You Tour” throughout the swing states, Trump has shown that he can bring tens of thousands of people to an event on moment’s notice? Mark my words: in placing Gen James Mattis –America’s most beloved warrior–as Secretary of Defense, the Armed Forces are quietly falling into line. Through all these measures, Trump has signaled to the Oligarchy that no extra-Constitutional measures against him will be tolerated during the interregnum.
Because of this important back story, neither Putin nor Trump have fallen for Obama’s cheap trick. This trap is so obvious that it appears to me that Obama’s heart isn’t in it. Oh sure, there is no doubt that by doing so, Obama hopes to bolix up Trump’s first one hundred days but that’s a side-effect. The true impetus for this clumsy provocation is that he was forced into taking this step by elites in the Democrat Party who are still operating under the delusion that the election was somehow “stolen” from Hillary Rodham Clinton.
What better way to cement into the body politic the meme that Trump’s presidency is illegitimate? That were it not for the Russians, that he couldn’t have won? Denial is a useful coping mechanism. Unfortunately, unless such denialism is put aside, it blocks the road to repentance. The need for self-reflection is as salutary as it is obvious; that the Democrats will not undertake it is not my problem. Oh well. I can’t say I didn’t try.
In the meantime, let us pause to praise the Lord that He has placed two real men in positions of authority over the two largest nuclear arsenals. Men that have the discernment to see through such threadbare schemes. Let us continue to entreat Him that they will not succumb to the machinations of the Globalist knaves who are still trying to engineer a war between America and Russia. More, that they can both work against ISIS and possibly turn back the orkish hordes that have befouled Christendom.
May He grant us all a happy and prosperous New Year!
