|666 or A-ok? Remains to be seen.|
- - -At the present time it is unclear whether the promises of the Trump administration hold any merit or not. There is no need to repeat a tirade about the silliness of our current predicament, which shows for now no signs of change. The Trump administration's greatest accomplishment to date seems to be getting even CNN to join "the great" - but pointless if only rhetoric - "meme wars."
While we remain agnostic as to the ultimate righteousness of Trump himself, and it may be likely that he does as well, we retain a lurking suspicion that the Trump Presidency will ultimately manifest its ulterior motives in the form of an economic renewal that is finally implemented after favorable mid-term elections, but only on the basis of a new monetary order of which Trump will appear the father.
But, again, we remain ultimately agnostic because we believe the Trump administration and the accompanying ideological movements, possibly like Russia in another vein, remains merely a vehicle, a potential, if you will - as in the Scholastic or Thomistic sense, that has yet to be fully actualized. As such, merely a source of power, the movement behind the Trump phenomenon remains a unwritten book.
It is time for conservatives to write that book. I believe that the Trump administration, faced with a type of crisis that requires a Presidential response will force its hand, possibly in the right direction.
I think most conservatives will admit that the liberal segment of the populace by and large controls the centralized levers of power, which still, the internet not withstanding, retain the greatest stranglehold over our country. The universities and public schools, with their hands in our pocket for our tax dollars are but one example. Thus, we have very little to lose, and a small window with the Trump administration in which to act which may be rapidly dwindling.
Something along the lines of what we envision, though this is also just an example, is a successful Texas secession movement. Yes, even many so-called 'conservatives' would voice opposition to such a movement, but it nevertheless has precisely the appeal of the Trump phenomenon, at least during the election, of a conservative ideal no longer beholden to the existent power structures, but willing to rearrange them to the greater benefit of conservative ideals, and thus humanity, particularly the American people, itself.
We have outlined such a movement not so long ago. But now seems the time to act. IF the Trump presidency is presented with such a crisis, say the secession of a conservative state of the union, he will be forced either to:
- prove his conservative bonafides, and look favorably on such a development
- show that he is merely a shill as was Obama and every other president since at least Kennedy for the globalist interests
An important note is that Trump has demonstrated consummate skill in talking a good game, but delivering less than expected. Whatever this ultra-conservative crisis leverage point would be, and we are open to suggestions, it must be persistent and push Trump into a corner that he has to exit.
Our larger point is that the temptation for conservatives is to go back to our proverbial sleep as the reliable warrior of Trump takes on the evil forces that have threatened us until now. This may prove the gravest mistake, as we must, as the left does during their reign, create a catalyst for the Trump phenomenon to realize its potential, rather than remain merely the possibility of change as it is now.
