You got to give it to The Donald. The collective freak-outs by the Establishment began back in June of 2015 and only accelerated after his election.
Once elected, the paroxysms of agony have only gotten worse. First there were riots, then recounts, then insipid, pathetic PSAs. Golden Showers, “Hamilton electors”, “fake news.” You get the story. Now it’s Russian hacking. It’s a done deal, why everybody agrees. Throw anything at all and see if it sticks. It can’t be because Trump won fair and square against a horribly flawed candidate running in the crappiest recovery presided over by her party. Nah, can’t be that. It’s gotta be the Russians.
Everybody believes it now. It’s “true.” Everybody except Julian Assange, but he knows better. Truth be told, so does the Intel community. They know better but they’re no less politicized than every other Federal agency. They’ll keep the story propped up as long as they have to because that’s their bread and butter. Can’t risk it, otherwise they’ll have to get real jobs.
Or something worse can happen to some agent who doesn’t toe the party line. Make no mistake: serious strings are being pulled here.
In any desperate negotiation, you find out pretty quick what’s really —really–important to the losing side. (And Trump is a really good negotiator, why, he even wrote a book about it, it’s called The Art of the Deal.) All that being said, we are seeing what it is that the Deep State is willing to throw overboard in face of the Trump juggernaut. Open borders, cheap labor, gun control, Obamacare and NATO are all of a sudden open to negotiation. At this pace, they may throw sodomite nuptials, climate change and who knows what else under the bus.
Political capital and political victories are sort of like the chicken-and-egg conundrum. You can’t have one without the other but which comes first? Trump’s electoral victory has resulted in serious victories and he’s not even President. On the home front he’s saved thousands of jobs; on the foreign front, he’s put China on notice when the first phone call he took was from Taiwan’s President. He’s a wild card. That makes negotiations easier.
The Deep State doesn’t like it one bit but they can be flexible if they have to. Like most humans, they can adjust to a new equilibrium. They can adjust and they will wherever they have to. Except on one item: detente with Russia.
The question is why?
We’ll get to that in a moment but first it’s important to see the blunder the Deep State has made. By coming out so vocally they’ve exposed their hand too early in the game. This shows a position of weakness, especially when you look at who they are sending out to trumpet the evilness of Russia. That would be Lindsey Graham. By trotting out this “conservative” on various venues, they’re trying to put Trump on notice that even the Republicans aren’t with him on Russia.
Now, if you happened to see Sen Graham on The O’Reilly Factor last week, you couldn’t help but notice that maybe he’s bat-shit crazy. The guy was frothing at the mouth about how evil Putin is. When Bill O’Reilly tried to gingerly ask him questions he kept up his diatribe. Graham even “corrected” O’Reilly who merely asked if we wanted another cold war with Russia; he replied that we are already in a “hot war” with Russia.
Excuse me? Last I checked Los Angeles and St Petersburg weren’t in smoldering ruins. The radioactivity levels here in Oklahoma were normal. And anyway, I didn’t see any two-headed mutants living in hovels eating dead armadillos as I drove to work yesterday. The situation may be different in South Carolina or more likely, in Graham’s buggered brain but if I had to guess, I’d say we are not now in a “hot war” with Russia.
So why does the Oligarchy push this insane meme, when even James Clapper admits that there is “no evidence” that Russia affected the votes back in November one way or the other? Why do they risk making fools of themselves by trotting out this sniveling little pansy whose credibility was long since shattered in the sands of Iraq? (And theirs as well?)
Because a resurgent Russia presents an existential threat to McCivilization –at least in their eyes. America, that is to say end-state America and our present hegemony over the world is based on increasing consumption. That our economy is fueled by increasing and eternal debt is unfortunate but like a man on a treadmill who can’t stop running otherwise he won’t get his drugs and porn, we have no choice. It’s an eternal rat-race and if the beta-males drop out in sufficient numbers then their will be rioting in the streets.
This is what we in the Dissident Right mean when we say McCivilization. Cheap prole food, two-click porn, broken families and opioids for those whose bodies are too worn out with pain to work. It’s not wealth but it is consumption and as long as we are able to consume drugs, Twinkies and The Kardashians, then we’ll be able to continue to kick the can down the road.
Now, it’s not that Russia is not without her own problems. No country is. But the fact that she has chosen to reconstitute herself in a Christian fashion and not succumb to the inane pieties of feminism and faggotry is an affront to the secular priesthood. Worse, Russia has chosen to retake its banking system off of the present usurious banking grid. That is nothing less than a stunning rebuke to the banking cartels. For the Deep State, this is where the rubber meets the road.
Interestingly, this was all foreseen over a hundred years ago. Even before the Bolsheviks sank their fangs into Holy Russia. Recently, I came across this perceptive essay in Vanity Fair (of all places!). It’s called “The Secret Source of Putin’s Evil.” (I’m not sure about the title, it appears rather ironic given its sympathetic tone but you can read it and judge for yourself.) From my perspective, it encapsulates what it is about Orthodox Russia that has so petrified post-Christian America, gripped as we are in nihilism:
“Dostoevsky, who traveled widely in Europe but was suspicious of it, despised passionately the revolutionaries and their desired revolution. He spent the 1860s and 1870s obsessing over Russia’s looming confrontation with itself. His most important works (Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, Devils and The Brothers Karamazov) are not simply novels, but rather dystopian warnings about what would happen if Russia did not return to its pre-Petrine origns.
“Dostoevsky foresaw Russia destroying itself with the clandestine, or not so clandestine, support of the West. The clearest illustration of this self-destruction comes in The Brothers Karamazov. The novel, the longest whodunit ever written, revolves around the murder of Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov. One of Karamazov’s three legitimate sons, Mitya, is accused and found guilty of the murder. But the real murderer is Karamazov’s mentally challenged, bastard son, Smerdyakov –and the real murderer behind Smerdyakov (the zakashik, or orderer) is Ivan, the most successful and Westernized of the Karamazov brothers. It is Ivan, full of newfangled Western ideas, who tears apart his family (and metaphorically, Russia), and it is the last remaining legitimate Karamazov son, Lyosha, who is left to rebuild it. Not incidentally, Lyosha is the youngest, most religious, and self-effacing of the Karamazov clan. The way forward is actually the way backward –all the way to the ancient, Russian sobornost, the spiritual community that, in the Slavophile mind, used to bind Russia together. This, all these years later, is Putin’s Russia.”
It is astounding to me how prophetic Dostoevsky was. Replace Ivan with Peter the Great and Smerdyakov with Lenin (who had no Russian blood and murdered Holy Russia). Mitya is Aleksandr Kerensky and other pro-Western dupes, while Ivan is Aleskandr Solzhenitsyn (or perhaps Vladimir Putin).
The fact that Russia regressed –almost reflexively–to it’s pre-Bolshevik ways is most fascinating to me. The question now before us will America likewise regress to its Constitutional ways? I certainly hope so. Will globalism and the nihilistic hedonism which sustains it be replaced by the intrinsic civic nationalism of the original Thirteen Colonies?
On the domestic level it depends on the desire of the various States to recapture their legitimate prerogatives. On the international level, I’m not sure how successful President Trump will be in holding back the dogs of war which are already baying at the Russian bear. His instincts are good; he clearly has no reason to trust the intelligence agencies but their hatred of Orthodox Russia is unyielding. Trotting out Graham, Little Marco and John Lewis shows how tenacious their manichean worldview is.
Even a resolute leader like Trump cannot hold back every possible false flag that the Deep State will throw in his way. Nor is he personally invulnerable. If the Deep State has to, it will find some way to take him out, whether through some trumped-up impeachment charge or worse.
Many prophecies in both the Orthodox East and the Catholic West point to the years 2017-18 as being cataclysmic. I choose to see things in a more secular fashion but I am not ignorant or dismissive of the spiritual dimension. Far from it. For me it’s simple: it’s all in God’s hands. That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t pray for peace in the world. For the time being, God has granted us a reprieve and temporarily silenced the drums of war. For this we should be thankful.
That doesn’t mean that He doesn’t allow us free will. I for one, am deeply concerned that the god of this world and his globalist minions will do whatever they have to reject the Lord’s grace. Time will tell.
