As with much of the stuff sent to me by compatriots, I do not know who wrote this. And that’s a shame because I really do like to attribute excellent pieces to the rightful author. If anyone knows the author, please let me know. This is a well written piece by someone who is obviously knowledgeable, well versed, and intelligent. Globalism is something we don’t hear many people talking about, especially the silly MSM, probably because they haven’t a clue what it means or entails. Here is an excellent primer. Bravo Zulu to whoever wrote this fine piece.
I have no idea what Donald Trump will do as president except that, in general, he will tear down the insidious, liberty-sapping globalist infrastructure put in place by globalists on both the left and right. We all know the story of putting a live frog in a pot of cold water and slowly heating the pot until the frog, not realizing he is being boiled, is cooked.
Over the past 50 years, globalists of both parties, have been slow cooking the American frog. Who are globalists? They are people who believe that the world is, with technology, becoming increasingly smaller. Consequently, they believe in the ever increasing consolidation of governing power in fewer and fewer hands. They are the same people who, in the United States have turned the government on its head, taking governing power from the states whenever possible and vesting it in the federal government.
They are people who would take power from the Congress and vest it in the President thus taking power from the people. They are the people who, as in Europe, believe that sovereign governments like Italy, Greece, Portugal, and Germany should cede their governing power to a more centralized government, like the EU in Brussels. They are people who believe that sovereign government and governments like the EU should then cede their power to a United Nations. Slowly, over 50 years, the world has been moving in these directions.
Their ultimate goal is to take power from the many and invest it a few, chosen from among the elite who, they believe, know better how the world should be. They have achieved their goals through a reasonable first step, open trade among sovereign nations. But once borders are open for trade, they advance their agenda through increasingly open borders for migration and population redistribution.
They use agendas like climate change and sustainability to redistribute the wealth of nations and to control their economies. They control the language people are permitted to use so that certain concepts and issues cannot reasonable be addressed. They impose regulations that deny individual freedom under the notion of the “common good”. They overturn the rule of law and attempt to establish in its place “social justice”. They take religious conviction out of the public square and replace it with moral relativism and situational ethics. They have translated equality of opportunity into equality of outcome. They have reconfigured spiritual equality of human beings with material equality of possessions. They have changed the notion of individual responsibility into group responsibility. And they have confused discrimination with being discriminating. For 50 years, these changes have slowly been boiling the American frog.
Now Donald Trump has upset the apple cart. And he is being vilified with every action he takes and every word he speaks. He is in a fight before he even becomes president. But this political fight is not a fight between Republicans and Democrats nor a fight between the Establishment and the Forgotten Man, nor any of the other media created divisions asserted by pundits. The fear and outrage we are witnessing toward Trump is precisely because he has pledged to tear down the globalist infrastructure. You can’t blame younger people, for example, for being upset. It’s all they have known and been taught. They have no idea how the globalist agenda has weakened the United States in order to make her the equal of other nations.
They are now being told that the rules under which they have operated for most of their politically conscious lives might be over-turned. It is exactly the way most older Americans felt as Obama spent the last 8 years making everything seem upside down to us. The difference is that we older folks have lived under both systems and know the difference. We understood because we lived witness to the heat being turned up on the kettle. We felt the water beginning to boil. And, instead of being comforted and lulled to sleep by the warming water, we remembered how cool and refreshing was the pond water that allowed us greater freedom. And we jumped out. We jumped with Trump (some of us).
So, Trump’s poll numbers will be low because globalists, foreign and domestic, are aligned against him. They see 50 years of “slow boiling the frog” about to be over-turned. The frogs are trying to escape the pot. They see: freedom and business-killing regulation…gone, a failing, socialist healthcare system…repealed, religious freedom and religion itself…restored, the international globalist world order…redefined, national sovereignty taken from the hands of international bodies like the United Nations, and national borders restored and immigration laws enforced, thereby destroying the George Soros funded open borders that are the very foundation of their globalist agenda.
These things and more threaten the very existence of the globalist world view. They will bring about change that will be resisted mightily by the very people who have imposed tremendous change on the United States in recent years. They will attempt, as they have already, to delegitimize Trump, to frighten the uninformed with visions of Hitler and fascism, to tell people that they will be oppressed by a dictator. They will try to further divide the nation by race, gender, age sexual orientation, suggesting they will all be harmed by this president. In effect, they are telling the frogs not to jump out of the kettle where it is warm and comfortable and where we are all in it together. “Don’t jump out into that cold cruel world where there are snakes that can eat you up. Beware the snakes. Stay in here where you are nice and comfortable and where WE will protect you from the snakes. Perhaps they are correct that it is safer in the pot for now but I have no doubt that in the long run, we will be “cooked”.
In the near future, there will be obstruction and a concerted effort by globalists of both parties to undermine the new administration because their plan, at least temporarily, has been derailed. Against this desperation driven fear and anger, I hope and pray Trump can prevail. But I certainly don’t expect if he does, that it will be with any cooperation from those who oppose him because they operate on the false belief that they will lose more than they will gain. Those who seek to take power from the people and consolidate it in the hands of the few are frustrated at this point in history. The people who have been taught that the globalist agenda is best for everyone do not recognize that what is best for everyone is good for no one. After the past 50 years of being the frog getting slow boiled in the pot of globalism, you can’t really blame them. Trump is taking them and the nation out of the pot. The only thing that may change their minds is if they see that being taken out of the pot didn’t deprive them of a nice warm home but actually saved their lives.
