Donald Trump has turned the whole of the Washington ‘establishment’ for miles around the ‘beltway’ into a fearful and muddled morass emitting noxious gas, hoping it asphyxiates all sources of energy propelling Trump toward the White House.
The majority of the MSM pretends it is only the Republican establishment which hates Trump, although it is safe to say, most talking-heads are mystified. The Republican establishment professes Trump isn’t ‘conservative’ enough and he’s not really a Republican. Plus, he’s not religious enough. The truth-challenged Clinton machinery and backers pretend he hates women, and oh, by the way, ‘he’s also racist’ and a ’xenophobe’, even though Trump’s past actions actually legally proved quite the opposite. The Democratic establishment pushes the notion that it’s time to get rid of all ‘angry-white-men,’ — you know, all those guys who support Trump, because white men are THE problem in America. And let’s not forget the always effective meme, . . . Trump changed his mind on abortions.
Much of this jaundiced nonaligned anti-Trump activity is financed, promoted and turbocharged by those who cannot abide with a transformation of the Washington status quo. This elitist disparate and cynical congregation includes, senior bankers who financed the current Administration; the lobbyists who represent hundreds of billions of dollars which have long influenced the Administrative and Legislative process, turning Washington into the richest zip code in the Nation, and all of those politicians who have turned politics and statecraft into personal wealth-creation maneuverings.
Notice that the above described establishment hasn’t used the accusation that he’s a “capitalist,” but hey, you never know what insanities we might be exposed to in the coming months.
In our lifetimes we have never seen such an all-sided attack on a surging Presidential candidate.
Do so many of his detractors fear Trump because they know he has the intelligence, the ability to focus, and the determination to get things done? Do they fear him because he knows how to get people on HIS side? They may, but those are not the fears of the establishment elite.
There is little doubt that Trump is even surprising himself with the size of the ‘uprising’ he has inspired in the electorate. Voters are feeling the pain of a declining economy. They aren’t buying Obama’s outright lies like the recent, “By almost every economic measure, we are significantly better off.” They are tired of watching corporations move offshore with their cash and their jobs. They are suffering from the fact that for the first time in history, more businesses are closing, than are opening as entrepreneurship wanes severely. They are tired of a government which isn’t listening, but is instead increasing their taxes and fees.
Many voters actually understand that onerous business taxation not only harms large corporations and sends them running for cover, but it also kills the entrepreneurial spirit that has been so fundamental to fashioning America’s vibrant society and its leadership in the world. Both Dems. and Reps have allowed run-away taxation, and debt and both have been strangely supportive of ‘off-shoring’ and outsourcing. Who’s left to be squeezed for cash in America? The whole sinking middle-class — the 99%ers.
To many in the middle-class Trump appears to want to restore a degree of ‘certainty’ — that most important element needed for a stable society. To the elitists he brings just the opposite.
It is an obvious fact that there is widespread anger. But, that is not what the Establishment feels or fears.
Trump is not an ideologue. He’s actually the most pragmatic candidate we have seen in years. He’ll do what he deems is right for America — some of it you’ll like and some of it you won’t. On all of it, you’ll know that no one “bought him” the way the current White House resident and most of Congress were influenced. No one will manipulate him or his decisions by buying them.
Trump represents an unpredictability that disturbs and confuses a perspective of the future — a state that the establishment currently holds firmly in complete control.
The establishment favours those it can manipulate. In that manipulation is continuity — the whole, wide political spectrum, from far left to far right is just a necessary and useful device in a teeming toolbox. To make things worse for the establishment, it is fighting a candidate who has the financial wherewithal who can not only ignore it, but can fight hard against it.
Suddenly, heading for the ultimate political seat of the world, someone is about to shake the perfunctorily comfortable settees from which the whole establishment manipulates the joysticks mastering our lives. Trump will upend the establishment elite’s comfortable and blissful existence. After all, it even controls the gyrations in stock markets, you know, those gyrations the world doesn’t understand but fears, yes, even those are well underhand. Trump lives well, with planes, helicopters, limousines, and mansions, at his disposal, but he is NOT one of THEM, plus, as public a figure as he has become, he remains a closed book to everyone other than his closest family members. He has spent much of his life with workers and labourers on his job sites around the world, and he even dares to talk and sound like them. How can the establishment like him?
The establishment elites of the left and the right persuasions cannot and will not tolerate, nor abide by such a usurper’s grab of the Oval Office. The whole of the establishment fears him and will throw everything it can at him in assault, from ads to violent protesters. This fear and this assault are resonant and the tumult aiming to destabilize Trump will echo through the primary season, and into the Presidential elections.
Trump will not only be fighting Hillary and her socialist machinery, he will be fighting the senior bankers of Wall Street, the politicians of Washington and all the lobbyists stuffing political mattresses with cash.
And the vast majority of the media? . . . . It will remain flummoxed.
