The End of the Trump Phenomenon

The change agent, President Trump, is not yet through with his mission: to break up the old, rotting paradigm that organizes and promotes inequality, drugs and arms trafficking, and above all, human trafficking and child abuse. If you don’t believe these networks exist, and that some powerful and influential people in business, politics, and entertainment are part of these networks, you’re about to find out. We all are. Hopefully.

Trump’s job (and I hope he does it) is to release information that has been being slowly collected since 2017. Right now there are over 100,000 sealed proceedings sitting at the DOJ, waiting for the light of day. Only a very few of these have been unsealed as of this writing. Releasing this info will identify a lot of the dark actors, and make possible the dismantling of the dark networks. However, the president may decide that his own re-election, and the attraction of being in the spotlight, may be more important. He may abandon his mission and go down the road of personal power and gain.

What is certain is that, eventually, the majority of the population will become tired not only of endless war, but of endless debate, contention, and confrontation. The wave of support Trump experienced in 2016 may last until 2020, but some time along the road voters will be looking for politicians who can bring everyone together.

 Right now that simply cannot happen because the corruption in our politics is so ingrained, and so ubiquitous, that the system needs to be cleaned out first. Trump is the perfect  guy to do this: someone with a huge ability to confront darkness, who will never back down until the end. This is the same characteristic that will eventually lead to the end of the Trump phenomenon. But that’s down the road a little way.

Unfortunately, so  far at least, the Democrats are clueless. For example, here is what Bernie Sanders said about Trump:

'To bring the American people together around an agenda that works for all of us, not just the wealthy on top,’” Sanders said. ‘We have a president who is a racist, who is a sexist, who is a homophobe, a xenophobe, and he is a religious bigot. His strategy of reelection is to divide the American people up. Our job is to allow him not to do that.’”

Poor ol’ Bernie. If you don’t have enough self-awareness to understand that using terms like racist, sexist, homophobe, xenophobe, and bigot are themselves very, very divisive, you don’t deserve to be the political leader of our country. And if you’re doing it on purpose, that’s even worse. If you object to the divisiveness of Trump, why are you being so divisive yourself? We all know what Trump is, and what his mission is. Trump has to be confrontational in order to take down the dark networks.

The other Democratic candidates (so far) provide absolutely no alternative to Trump because they use the same tactics as Trump. What’s the difference between a fascist and an “anti-fascist” if they both use the same tactics? The answer is, there is no difference. If the Democrats were smart they would simply ignore the president, and come up with a plan for greater cooperation. Instead, all we hear is Trump bashing, just like Bernie. What’s the difference between “Democratic Socialism” and the “National Socialism” of the German Nazi party? My guess is, not much.

Donald Trump will go down as the most divisive politician in U.S. history. But if he does his job and exposes the corruption, he’ll eventually be regarded as a hero who did a really, really tough job and got not much credit for it.

We’ll see. The Democratic debate starts tonight in Miami! Will it be a circus, or something memorable?
