Based purely on his campaign promises, it almost seemed reasonable to hope that President-Elect Trump might genuinely be opposed to the Establishment—a true champion of the people rising up to challenge the Powers That Be.
Many who valiantly campaigned for Trump did so believing that he absolutely, unequivocally must be elected in order to save the Union from a DNC-contrived socialist-globalist death spiral. Conservatives and evangelicals alike vigorously defended Trump on the basis that he was a non-conformist, independent thinker who finally gave voice to the “silent man” (millions of disenfranchised or first-time voters) whom many credit for carrying him to victory.
Whether Trump’s words are as “golden” as his goose—or merely goose poop—remains to be seen. But at some point in the near future (if it hasn’t already happened by now) the “Populist President” will be shown the playbook of the Elite and told exactly what plays he can and cannot call. In exchange for allowing him to put on the uniform of President, the Powers That Be will give him certain concessions that present the appearance of his making good, while simultaneously slipping away from his spurious campaign promises.
Forgive me for being cynical; but former presidents and some of our nation’s most prominent men have repeatedly warned us of the way things really work in our nation’s Capitol. Consider the words of Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, who more than a century ago revealed the existence of a shadowy hand which governs the land:
Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.
The real truth is, we often don’t want to acknowledge reality: That in virtually every industry and agency in America, the foxes are guarding the hen house. And unfortunately, the vaunted populist uprising which swept Trump into office is in for a rude awakening. Because the hidden hand that holds all the cards in Washington will refuse to be played by anyone—especially by a casino builder-cum-President whose real estate developments are smack in the middle of cities largely owned and operated by organized crime.
But it’s far more pleasant to live in denial of “outrageous conspiracy theories” (quoting George W. Bush, disparaging alternative analyses of the events of 9/11) — and to believe that our government or chosen political party not only has everything under control, but has our personal best interests in mind. But unless we set aside what our school textbooks and TVs tell us about U.S. history, and begin to do our own research, we’ll remain deceived about how and why we’ve lost our country. Consider this explanation by a former mayor of Trump’s hometown:
“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation… The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties, … and control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.” —New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, New York Times, March 26, 1922
Again, if this were true in 1922, then how in the name of all that is good and decent are we to expect a “free press” to operate today? The truth is that the “freedom of the press” (which was once protected by hundreds of independent print and broadcast companies) is now entirely monopolized by a cartel of six multinational media conglomerates who together control better than 90% of the media in America. (1)
Post-election, this explains the increasing assault on “fake news” websites (independent internet-based reporting and analysis) by the media establishment that seeks to stifle populist dissent. Yes, it’s true that the web is filled with tabloid trash, clickbait and ad-driven robot sites, but much of the political propaganda and disinformation is actually created and disseminated by our own government—from false-flag events to astroturf organizations taking names (and dollars) across the political spectrum.
So at the risk of raining on the post-election pro-Trump parade led by Fox and Friends, let me state the obvious: The deck is completely stacked against America’s new high-rolling President Elect. The best that Trump can do, even if he’s an honest gambler, is to serve as a fly in the ointment of the D.C. establishment. But as the example of John F. Kennedy will attest, one man cannot take on the Masonic military-industrial complex and live to tell about it.
In other words, folks, I’m sorry to break the news, but Donald Trump is not “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.”
Even with a GOP majority in Congress, the House and Senate are full of neocons—as are many of Trump’s key counselors and prospective appointees including Rudy Giuliani, Chris Christie, Newt Gingrich, and other bosom buddies of Sean Hannity and FOX News.
These “new conservatives” are all after the manner of G.W. Bush and his establishment father who literally broke ground and poured the foundation for the New World Order upon which Barack Hussein Obama has built. So, if Trump surrounds himself with the likes of these men (and odds are he will—either out of ignorance, compulsion, or collusion), then he is merely the flip side of the same political coin that is minted by the Bankers That Be.
As Georgetown University professor Caroll Quigley (an insider to the architects of the New World Order) revealed in his 1966 exposé Tragedy and Hope:
The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. (2)
Indeed, just as Obama faithfully perpetuated (for eight grueling years) the anti-constitutional NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) that George W. Bush first saddled upon Americans—which eviscerates the Bill of Rights and virtually suspends Posse Comitatus for all citizens, turning patriots into political dissidents and potential “domestic terrorists”—so too will Donald Trump dutifully sign on the line for increased surveillance and military presence, all for America’s “protection.”
Given these realities, I’m afraid that conservatives and evangelicals are once again set up for great disappointment. Practically, Trump cannot possibly repudiate all the unconstitutional, evil machinations and executive orders of the past several presidential administrations.
As Franklin Delano Roosevelt, America’s 35th President, observed in 1945,
The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson.
Of course, this truth is now self-evident, as numerous independent reporters have long identified the revolving door between government positions and banks, including Goldman-Sachs:
I(3)t’s hardly a secret that the halls of government are filled with graduates of Goldman Sachs, the controversial Wall Street investment bank. But the revolving door between Washington and Goldman has been spinning a little faster of late, depositing three of the bank’s alumni into top slots at the Federal Reserve in recent months…. Yet as scandal after scandal has unfolded showing collusion between Goldman Sachs and the Fed, the Fed has done nothing to reform its own governance system.
Historically, collusion and corruption have always fit hand-in-glove with power and prominence. But such trysts were formerly conducted in secret; today, they are commonplace—and as evidenced by what has come to be called the “Clinton Criminal Cartel,” they are also carried out with apparent impunity. The skeletons in the Clinton closet are too numerous to count—but thanks to the colossal “bungling” (or brilliant Plan B) by FBI Director James Comey, they will likely never see the light of day. In revelations more predictable than shocking, Comey’s own conflicts of interest—along with his health and well-being—appear to be directly tied to big banking—and to the Clinton Foundation:
In 2013, the same year that he was appointed the FBI Director, James Comey became a board member, a director, and a member of the Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee for the controversial London-based bank HSBC.
HSBC is a bank with close ties to the Clinton Foundation that lists among its clients Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining magnate with ties to a Russian uranium deal approved under Clinton’s State Dept., and six other major foundation donors listed in a report by The Guardian. (4)
This could explain quite a bit, could it not?
There seems little doubt that Clinton was originally favored by the Powers That Be. But post-election, it appears that Comey’s own questionable and confusing actions may have been cleverly conceived to protect Hillary from future inquiry—thereby insulating those who would otherwise be incriminated by Servergate. In fact, it seems plausible that after recognizing her liabilities as President, and upon assessing the risk of her potential investigation and likely impeachment by a Republican Congress, the Establishment could have rigged the election after all—tipping the tables toward Trump in exchange for his pledge to not pursue “crooked Hillary.”
President-Elect Trump may have the appearance of directing his own destiny, but the truth is that the way the Presidency works is much the same as “reality” TV. Just as Trump played to the cameras on the hit NBC show, “The Apprentice,” he will now take cues from a new set of producers and directors in his new role as Commander-in-Chief.
Donald Trump campaigned hard against waste, fraud, and corruption—but will he succeed in “draining the swamp” as he so famously declared he would? Will he slay the dragons that inhabit D.C. and deliver the government back to the people — or will he remain spellbound by the heaps of treasure upon which the legendary dragons sit, and which grips the heart of so many powerful men (and women) today:
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
No man [or servant] can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. —1 Timothy 6:10; Matthew 6:2
The President Elect will soon solemnly swear to “the preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” But with the campaign promises of Donald Trump already appearing flexible after his victory, “We the People” should know better than to deposit all hope into a ballot box.
Christian Patriots, in particular, should remove the cloak of Americanism from their shoulders, and replace it with the yoke of higher authority:
It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. —Psalm 118:8-9
