Trumpism Survives!

2,416 words

“Even if Trump turns out to have lost there has been no resounding repudiation of Trumpism to accompany that defeat.”

Ruth Marcus in the anti-Trump Washington Post

President Trump is the first Chief Executive that I’ve truly loved. His accomplishments are enormous. The ones that I care about the most are:

  1. Defending the border and putting a lid on legal immigration.
  2. Destroying ISIS. [1] A group that rose, in part I think, in the wake of Neocon/Obama/Hillary support for the “moderate” rebels in Syria.
  3. Ending most (but alas, not all) of America’s reckless involvement in the Syrian Civil War.
  4. Enacting the “Muslim travel ban,” the mere existence of which cut down the many acts of Islamic terror in the West that grew throughout Obama’s second term.
  5. Renegotiating trade deals that had hollowed out America’s economy, especially in the Rust Belt.
  6. An America First foreign policy. The very concept put an end to what was a “blank check” for war given to a large number of allies, many of whom are hostile to America and locked in their own entangling hatreds.
  7. Recognizing that the Cold War was over and decisively acting upon this fact by various means — such as talks with North Korea. Embracing the full implications of the end of the Cold War requires acts of enormous courage and vision, and Trump did it.

Far from the “low-information” insults hurled at him by his enemies, President Trump campaigned and governed along high concepts. All of the problems above were known but not addressed by the political elites.

An example of how intelligent Trump was to others — compare his America First! ideas to the soft-brained Secretary of Defense “Mad Dog” Mattis. From what I gather from his book Call Sign Chaos (2019), Mattis seemed to only have an ethos dedicated to defending the honor of the US Marine Corps, an organization whose mission, he believed, was to go abroad and kill whoever was there. His was not to reason why, and he never did.

Meanwhile, the media, the FBI, and many others were hostile to Trump from the get-go. Everything he said was claimed to be a lie by the media, even when they peddled a dubious conspiracy theory about “The Russians” hacking the 2016 election. Trump was impeached by the House for crimes that his rival Joe Biden committed. His re-election was stolen from him in 2020 by an obvious (but won’t ever be proven) case of voter fraud. Battleground states controlled by Democrats simply waited to declare a winner until they knew how many votes Trump was ahead and then anti-Trump election officials came up with the right number of absentee ballots. The media colluded in this.

One watched the fraud live in early 2020. News reports would show one or another battleground state with 99% of the votes counted and then the tally would shrink back to 87% and Trump’s lead would decline. Suddenly, 200,000 mail-in votes would appear somewhere in the wee hours of the morning. As further proof of the obvious fraud, down-ballot Republicans won even while the Democrat’s presidential candidate gained enormous vote hauls.

The Democrats had learned their lesson during the 2000 Florida recount. Then, the Republicans could stop a steal because the event was only in one county and the press was neutral. In back-engineering what I think happened, it went like this: When Trump won Florida and Ohio on election night, a call was made and the absentee ballots started to get created. Probably it took so long to finish counting these fraudulent votes because the Biden camp didn’t recognize how strong Trump’s support was and more fraudulent ballots had to be printed and marked on the fly.

Those that believe in “civil rights” always misread data.

And the press colluded in the vote-fraud scam.

The Rule Set Gap

Trump’s treatment by the DC Establishment in spite of his obvious positives is an example of the problem of the Rule Set Gap. The concept is found in Thomas P.M. Barnett’s book (which I mostly disagree with) called The Pentagon’s New Map (2004). His idea is that there is the potential for violent conflict whenever there are no established rules.

There are two major affairs where the rules are fast and lose which the Democratic Party did that damaged America during Trump’s presidency. The first was the Special Prosecutor probe based on the spurious “Russian hacking” allegations. The second was the impeachment sham.

I’ve written about special prosecutors before. To sum up the sort of reform I propose: Special prosecutors need to be appointed after both Houses of Congress have agreed upon the need for one. They should not be started by a mid-range government official that “happens to be Jewish” looking to pin a crime on a president they don’t like. The special prosecutor must have a scope, a budget, and a time limit. Impeachment should be an up-down vote for removal from office by both House and Senate only after a President has been convicted of a felony in a criminal court with normal rules of evidence, not the opinions of constitutional law professors who “happen to be Jewish.”

Disaster follows the impeachment/special prosecutor situation — after Nixon’s resignation, Saigon fell. After Clinton’s impeachment, terrorists plotted a black day. After Trump’s impeachment, a major plague followed. At the bottom of all of these impeachments is usually a disgruntled government employee of the lowest sort — like the late Linda Tripp.

We’ll get back to the Rule Set Gap shortly. . .

Voter Fraud and the Sub-Saharans

I wish I could say that if we didn’t have the Sub-Saharans in our blessed land of America that voter fraud would not exist. They are indeed part of the problem, but not even close to being the main part.

The Sub-Saharans in America cause several political anomalies. One problem was all the Rube Goldberg compromises baked into the US Constitution that have caused a bunch of problems — like the 3/5ths Clause. Then, whites that live near blacks must congeal behind any political group that signals that they will hear white concerns. The necessary prisons are built, of course, but that pro-white party can do anything afterward. That party enters a dubious alliance with a wicked Eurasian tribe and calls this alliance a “crusade,” they can outsource your job to the Orient, bet the treasury in a single game of pitch-and-toss, and. . . well, by now you get my meaning.

Second, Sub-Saharans are a conformist people that vote as a block. Before slavery ended we had the 3/5ths Clause; after it ended, men like Mark Hanna (1837-1904) rose to positions of power in part by building a network of Sub-Saharan delegates in the South that supported the Republican Party. [2] When the party system shifted in 1968, Sub-Saharans became Democrats and when presidential candidates started to use the primaries to win the convention, Super Tuesday made the black vote critical for the Democratic candidate.

Third, Sub-Saharans can provide the muscle, so to speak, for a vote steal. They are the people whom the Democratic Party supports above all others, they tend to think alike, and have a culture of “not-snitching.” They are a ready-made group of fraudsters just waiting to be hired.

Fourth, the threat of Sub-Saharan voters makes election fraud easier for whites near them to accept. Much voter fraud is a Southern thing to keep down Africanization. Keeping down Africanization is moral and proper, but using fraud in one circumstance means fraud can be used in another. Think of it as part of the Sub-Saharan tax.

In the end, though, voter fraud comes down to one thing: Absentee ballots. It’s that simple.

Let us return to the Rule Set Gap

Probably the beta test for this election steal was during the Alabama special election that fielded Judge Roy Moore in 2017. Judge Moore was disliked by the DC Elite, including Republicans. The election was probably stolen from Moore, but since nobody cared to really look into the matter, one will never know. Probably, the test was to see if it could be done and enough Republicans would support it.

President Obama wanted to reduce voter fraud by making voting compulsory. However, it is a citizen’s right to not vote as much as it is to vote. I’ll add that the appearance of impropriety is as bad as impropriety itself.

I propose the following:

  1. Voting must be done in person. No absentee ballots at all. Those abroad in the military or State Department, etc. can vote through an in-person process “over there” where the results are forwarded in real-time to their home district.
  2. All voters must have a Real ID: Proof of citizenship, biometrics, photo, etc.
  3. All ballots must have a chain of custody and a mark, stamp, or stain showing they are true.
  4. The voting process must be transparent. Who counts the votes must be known, who transports the ballots must be known, who declares a winner in each state must be known, etc.
  5. The media doesn’t declare a winner, the governments of the various States do through a process that must be fully transparent and universally understood.
  6. Vote counting must be done with a sense of urgency. Once it starts, nobody goes home until it’s done.

Because of obvious voter fraud, Joe Biden comes to the presidency with a major asterisk. He is also frail and visibly declining. He cannot “put a lid” on his administration’s day-to-day doings. The press [3] also doesn’t have Trump to kick around anymore. They’ll be looking for fresh blood. Biden will be easy pickings even for cowardly cuckservative bullies for the next for years — if he lives that long. The People’s Business will remain undone while the senile new Big Guy gets beat like a piñata.

Furthermore, nobody will impeach a guy that one can find joy in beating. The most cowardly of the Republicans can now close ranks and stop Biden at every turn. Any Islamic terror attack, every Antifa arson, every black attack will be on Biden’s head and everyone will remember that Trump warned us.

Trumpism Survives

I wish I’d been able to die in battle with a sword in my hand for Donald Trump. But it was never about Trump, it was always about his ideas. America First! Not a dubious adventure to bring sodomy and high fructose corn syrup to the savages of Durka-Durkastan whose immigrant children will attack Americans at their first chance.

It was never about Trump! Trump was but a warrior for the working day. He gave me a great sense of pride in the part of me that connects to the hard-working Rust Belt and its factories, cornfields, and river barges. He offered a ray of hope against opium. He also kept his head when others were losing theirs and blaming it on him. Trump has fallen — by fraud — but I won’t hold my head in shame. By the mass, my heart is in the trim.

Trump was struck down like a hero in a Greek Epic; do you think it could have ended any other way? But Trumpism survives. Trump has a Deep State too. I won’t spitefully wish that Kyiv is burned to the ground in revenge for the impeachment fraud or argue that Americans in Trump’s Deep State should do what they can to ensure bullets and flack vests don’t arrive in the camp of an abusive “ally” before the battle and stop the medical aid after — but you can think hard about what you can do to secure things for your country and posterity. You have no moral obligation to spill your blood or spend your treasure for Israel, South Korea, or the barren, air-thin mountains of India. An America First! ethos can bash our way out of some sketchy alliances we are in right now.

We haven’t seen the end of Trump. Even if he was killed on November 3rd by the most spiteful Senators in the Forum, his ideas, his vision, his courage, and his soul live on.

I will further add that we haven’t seen that which we gave so much to for these last four years destroyed. Nor do we stoop to build anything with worn-out tools. Our tools are new and our ideas are intact. I encourage all of you to stay sober, work hard, walk the straight and narrow, and continue to follow the ideas of Trump into the broad sunlit uplands.

[1] I believe that ISIS was supported by Gulf Arabs and inadvertently supported by the US government’s curious decision to support the “moderate Syrian rebels.” The late Senator John McCain did much to cause the Middle East to wash in blood. The true story of ISIS has not yet been revealed and will likely never be.

[2] Mark Hanna’s response to the 1906 Brownsville Affair is why we still have an Africanized Army.

[3] I’ll add this as a footnote here regarding media lies. From the Washington Post:

[. . .] Some in the media intentionally deceived voters. Just before Election Day, we learned the identity of “Anonymous,” the supposedly senior Trump official who had penned a New York Times op-ed claiming to be part of a “resistance” inside the administration. Two years ago, the column roiled Washington, fueling speculation over who had written it. Some even suggested it was Vice President Pence because the author used the word “lodestar” — a favorite Pence term.

It turned out to be Miles Taylor, an unknown mid-level staffer at the Department of Homeland Security. The Times justified identifying Taylor as a “senior official in the Trump administration” because it said he was Chief of Staff to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. But when the Times ran the op-ed on Sept. 5, 2018, Taylor wasn’t Chief of Staff; he was a mere Deputy Chief of Staff. If the Times had put his name on that op-ed, no one would have cared. “Anonymous” was a hoax, plain and simple. Many Americans understandably look at the Times’ deception and ask: If the paper blatantly mischaracterized Taylor as a “senior official,” how many other anonymously sourced news stories attacking Trump have they falsely attributed to “senior officials”?

    I don’t have much issue with your article, except for some of the wording.

    For example I have a huge respect for Trump, but I do not love him. I would love him if he would be motivated to his actions by a love for the original white European settlers. But as far as I can judge his motivation, it seems to come from a classical liberal standpoint. And as such seems to include civic nationalism instead of ethnonationalism.

    But yes, Trump’s presidency was good for “us” in as far as he tried to stop the speed of the decline. And I do hope that he wins another 4 years.

    Oh, I did found a thing with which I have a problem after all 😉

    ” I encourage all of you to …, work hard, …”

    That needs a big subnote: Work hard for yourself and your fellow ethnonationalists (or at the least right-wingers). Don’t work hard if your taxes keep going to institutions that undermine our cause.

    Trump is very much “the man who could have been,” as opposed to “the man who can be and is,” the heroic individual who is defined by moral ideals, independence and integrity. Trump was never a politician, which helped his case in a populist way, but it also meant he was devoid of a political theory, and had no ideology underpinning his vague big tent “let them come legally” civnatism. Ultimately Trumpism is not an ideology, only a series of policy points that to a limited extent align with the interests of white Americans. His non-political nature made him a man who more easily wavered on his principles, who always seemed floundering when faced with real organized opposition, who did not understand the nature of the enemies he faced or of America’s decline, who refused to address the communism rampant in America until late into 2020, and eventually let go of most of his nativist sentiment as political pressure mounted on him. His political success was ultimately dependent upon his ability to “play ball” with the establishment and pander to public opinion i.e. the media talking points, repeatedly making concessions to his political adversaries not out of an unwillingness to fight back but out of cluelessness and impotence.
    However, while Trump may be largely undefined and bound by a lack of imagination and an inability to deal with the many traps that America’s deep state laid out for him, Trumpism lives on, and thank God for that. Without Trump, Trumpism can serve as the fertile breeding ground for a new nationalism. It can be appropriated and molded from a loose collection of policies into a political principle, with a real ideological underpinning, and it can be helmed by someone more up to the task than Trump was. While admittedly there may be none better than Trump himself, barring perhaps Tom Cotton, the political awakenings of the Trump era may prove invaluable in the future by awakening the dormant passions of the political leaders of tomorrow.

      Good post, except that Tom Cotton is a warmongering imbecile who wants war with China. Cotton and other “conservatives” can’t or refuse to understand that the causes of America’s decline are what’s inside the country, not what’s outside. Going to war with China is like a cancer patient picking a fight with the biggest man in the neighborhood in the hope that if he wins that will somehow cure him.

        America is already at war with China. I’d rather the US focus on the global threat that China poses than yet another pointless war in the Middle East.

        They probably will never be direct conflict with China. The Chinese love to buy influence and power. They will just colonize by buying up property and paying off politicians. They have completely taken over western Canada and parts of Australia. They don’t need to fight with whites they can count on our elites selling us out and just smash us that way.

    When voting for president of the USA these decadent days, you are not voting for the candidate per se. Rather, you are voting for the faction you want to see take power.

    People voted for Biden-Harris because they knew they were voting for the “Woke” Capital/Deep-State faction. And never mind the former Veep’s compos mentis. He doesn’t count. The faction behind the curtain does.

    People voted for Trump because they knew they were voting for the National-Populist faction.

    The difference between the Biden-Harris and the Trump factions is that the former has a sizable chunk of the System behind it (media, IT oligarchs, Beltway, etc), while the latter has an uphill fight against that System.

    What some people on the right did not get is that it was mostly irrelevant whether or not Trump implemented this or that policy. What mattered was that as long as Trump was in the Oval Office, the System faction had to divert an inordinate amount of its energy to attack him. And division in the ruling class can be exploited by dissidents. If nothing else, the System exposed its own hostility to the traditional American people. And let’s note that the Dissident Right did exploit the metapolitical divisions of the Trump years to expand considerably.

    Like it or not, Trump 2016-2020 was an avatar for tens of millions of Americans, not to mention many millions more worldwide in national-populist movements. While not as organized as the System, the Trump faction was by its very existence making a difference. The millions of Americans taking it to the streets today to protest the apparent electoral fraud, flying Trump flags, buying guns, or just questioning the System indicates the potential of the National-Populist faction.

    Regardless of the outcome of Trump’s challenge to the election outcome of 2020, there is a potential to convert those tens of millions of National-Populists into a militant faction which can take on the System and next time around gain an enduring victory.

    Trump 2024!

    “Trumpism” died the day he fired all the people that put him in the White House and abandoned Populism in favor of milquetoast GOP ideology….. Tax cuts, MIGA, Hiring the swamp instead of firing the swamp, Stock market cheerleading, etc etc etc.
    His great accomplishment will hopefully be the destruction of the Republican party. They’ve been exposed for the frauds and traitors they always were.

    The following is more a question than a comment because I am not American and therefore don’t understand certain procedures. You write that Trumpism won. I agree with you: seventy million+ voted for Trump, and now 70% of republicans think that the election was unfair and not free (so they are red pilled).
    But it seems that a lot of what you listed as Trump’s gains, could still be reversed by Biden through ‘executive order’, such as: rejoining Paris climate accords, rejoin the World Health Organization, repeal President Trump’s ban on immigration from countries that try to sneak terrorists into our country, and reinstate the DREAMer program’.
    Is this true? Could somebody please educate me?

      There’s been a lot of talk about how Trump and his policies would be repudiated and permanently put to rest this election with a Biden landslide victory but that didn’t happen. Trump and his policies may be on the way out but the idea of America First lives on, his base has no desire to go back to voting for blatantly cucked neoconservatives. If nothing else Trump has shifted the Overton window and redpilled a lot of people, can’t take that away from him.

    I hope Trump goes away but populism stays. Letting blacks out of prison resulted in fewer White male votes. To the Democrats,Trump gaining a few minorities against the loss of Whites must have looked like a pretty good trade.

    Great article. I confess I didn’t understand some of it. What’s particularly telling is that the media is saying we can’t even question the possibility of voter fraud, something that every civic minded person should be concerned about, meanwhile they perpetrated the utter nonsense of Russian collusion for four whole years.

    This may be the best outcome for us as it solidifies the consensus in the movement that the end game is the Partition of the United States.

    The intensifying fight against the steal, the building of the separate media/internet en route to physical separation all work in our favor near, mid, and long term.

    The consensus here is already spilling out into mainstream conservativism; once people can see in their hearts and minds a life free and safe of our tormentors, they will love and long for that vision to become reality.

    Meanwhile, La Patrie En Danger!

    Is CC r/TheDonald now? Did his CRT EO he did in the last two months really make you forget four years of corporatist cheerleading and ignoring his base? I fully understand voting for him as the lesser of two evils, which is what I did. But three hero Trump articles in a row is so cringe.

    “Trump was struck down like a hero in a Greek Epic; do you think it could have ended any other way? But Trumpism survives. Trump has a Deep State too. I won’t spitefully wish that Kyiv is burned to the ground in revenge for the impeachment fraud or argue that Americans in Trump’s Deep State should do what they can to ensure bullets and flack vests don’t arrive in the camp of an abusive “ally” before the battle and stop the medical aid after — but you can think hard about what you can do to secure things for your country and posterity.

    WTF is this? Zelensky admirably told the truth and said he didn’t see any implied threat from Trump.
