Part 1: Anti-Establishmentarianism To support this thesis, let me start with a list of countervailing factors which have provided a check on Trump, but which have not really factored into the embarrassingly simplistic and contradictory media narratives: - Trump and key officials are under ongoing investigation (including surveillance), predicated on Russian electoral influence, for any impropriety during the 2016 campaign and beyond (effectively an open remit) - Media organizations, including CNN and the networks, have adopted an aggressive anti-Trump posture in an effort to influence Congressional Republicans and the general public - The tech industry has launched an effort (in effect a conspiracy) to defund/delist right-wing activism on its platforms and to infringe political speech - Republican Party Congressional leaders are unanimously opposed to Trump's agenda, as are of course Democratic leaders - Federal judges have become unusually activist in stopping or retarding policies which have heretofore been accepted as an executive branch privilege - The federal bureaucracy has openly interfered with Trump policy, not only by leaking sensitive diplomatic material but by explicitly counter-signaling the President's directives - The intelligence and diplomatic "deep state" is unambiguously opposed to Trump initiatives and has acted in apparent collaboration with the party political establishments in opposing them - Some of Trump's own hand-picked cabinet staff have been involved in plotting against him In short, Trump is the most establishment-hated politician of all time. He is also hated by the most powerful establishment of all time, that of a superpower with resources and reach that are difficult even for us to fully grasp. Why, one may ask, hasn't this globalist conspiracy already removed Trump from office under pretext? The answer is probably twofold: fear of chaos (including high likelihood of market collapse), and their assuredness that any anti-establishment policy can be easily subverted by lesser means. Of course we may be speaking prematurely here--special counsel Mueller's investigation is designed to hang over Trump's head and to offer, at a time of the establishment's choosing, grounds to remove Trump from office.
