I will admit that the Congressional impeachment investigation announcement made me worry a bit. I don’t think the President’s actions warranted impeachment but I do know that he isn’t a career politician — his opponents are, and they’re also masters at DC politics. However, when I read that the White House was being denied due process rights and that the Intelligence Community Inspector General was stonewalling disclosure of a post-dated “form change,” I realized that this whistle blower’s claim, backed by third-party scuttlebutt, was just another raid in the years-long insurgent war against the President.
It’s been my experience that professional politicians are narcissistic sociopaths and career bureaucrats are controllers — both crave power. When a motivated driver comes in with a plan to upset the power structure, he’s going to be the target of those two anti-social personality groups.
It’s no secret that I wasn’t one of Donald Trump’s original supporters and an Eleventh-Hour Trump voter. As I stated some year and a half ago, I was wrong. Terribly wrong. I am convinced now that no Republican could withstand these attacks against the Presidency of the United States. I am not fully convinced that President Trump will survive it but, if anyone can, he will.
Our federal government is rife with corruption and complacency. The last three Presidential elections proved that the American people want change — they elected two seemingly opposite agents of change in each of those three elections. The bureaucracy was put on notice in this most recent Presidential election and it is fighting back with an insurgency, the likes of which we haven’t seen since Lincoln was elected. The Democratic Party and Big Media are all too happy to do the insurgents’ dirty work.
The three recognized strategies of insurgent warfare are guerrilla campaigns, conventional battle, and punishment. The goal is regime change or collapse of a government. In a political context, conventional battle would be special elections and is the least risky to wage. Punishment would be spying on political opponents or using frivolous lawsuits to discredit them — this strategy is the most risky because it runs the risk of alienating the populace. Guerrilla campaigns however are designed to wear down the opponent, over time, and entice foreign powers to help the insurgents. They use ambushes and hit-and-run raids to wound the opponent and attract support from third-parties.
The risk of guerrilla campaigns is that the third-party powers may be unable to help the insurgents upset a regime because the government controls superior forces and enjoys popular support. The current political insurgency against the democratically-elected President of the United States is using mostly guerrilla campaigns in an attempt to wear down American voters so that they surrender in the final conventional battle; the 2020 Presidential election. It just might work and, if it doesn’t, it will be because of two reasons:
1- The insurgents don’t have a compelling alternative to offer. Biden is corrupt, Sanders is infirm, and Granny Warren is an unlikable fraudster. The rest of the field of candidates are lightweights with maybe two promising outliers: Buttegieg and Gabbard. The former is the Mayor of a city with a population around the size of El Cajon and the latter’s commitment to a Trump-like foreign policy make her another possible enemy of the insurgents.
2- Trump counter punches. Hard. Really hard. The American people like him for his courage to do just that. Trump won a conventional election by using unconventional tactics. He eviscerated almost a dozen and a half legitimate Republican opponents by campaigning as a different kind of Republican. Trump defeated the Should-Be-First-Female President with the notion that the American government should protect and serve the American people…First.
Trump confronts guerrilla campaigns with like tactics. He incessantly tweets, putting the media on tilt, and assigns funny little nicknames to the insurgents. He holds Obama-like rallies in contested lands, begging the populace of those lands to join him in his fight. He calls Washington DC a “swamp.” He reaches out to Americans that the insurgents assume, because of the color of their skin, must be aligned with them. Rather than make nice with the bureaucracy like his predecessor did, Trump keeps his promises to the American people and confronts the bureaucrats, demanding that they quantify their value as servants to the people they swore an Oath to serve. When the insurgents attack, he counterattacks on grounds previously considered to be the insurgents’ territory.
It’s as if President Trump has watched the insurgents destroy America and has been plotting this counter-insurgency for a couple of decades, laying in wait to ambush them with the very tactics and weapons they used to take down what most Americans believed to be “exceptional.” He champions the common-Joe, who has been screaming out his apartment window, with a promise to Make America Great Again.
The American people want less war, stronger borders, fewer taxes and regulations, and trade policies that are fair and equitable to both trading partners. President Trump promised all of those things and is making good on his promises. This upsets the status quo to the point that the politically-privileged class is fighting back. They can’t defeat President Trump in a conventional battle so they have resorted to insurgent warfare. They started right before he was inaugurated and will continue up until the day he is re-elected to office. If any one is prepared to fight a counter-insurgency, it’s Trump.
I don’t think he should have to do it alone. I will defend him. I hope Republicans will too.
