Joe Biden is Trumpism’s Best Asset

11 02 2021


  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich[2], has written:

The Washington establishment still can’t comprehend the dynamic which allows former President Donald Trump to withstand constant attacks and media hits without losing his core supporters.

At this point, the key to Trump’s following is President Joe Biden.

No matter how bad Trump’s lawyers are (and yesterday’s opening presentation for Trump may be the most incompetent, amateurish, and ill prepared opening I have ever seen), Biden is worse.

No matter what the accusations against former President Trump are, his base can’t leave him because the alternative is so unacceptable to them.

This hostility to the Washington establishment was driven home to me recently when Scott Rasmussen reported on a survey in which 72 percent of the American people said “political elites believe they are superior to everyday Americans.” Rasmussen found only 11 percent disagreed and 17 percent were not certain.

This idea that the elites hold themselves above the rest of us was shared by 78 percent of men and 68 percent of women who were asked in a survey of 1,200 registered voters from Feb. 4-6. This idea also seemed to bridge the urban-rural divide. Seventy-seven percent of suburban voters, 70 percent of urban voters, and 60 percent of rural voters all agreed.

There was a larger gap between the private and public sector workforces, with 82 percent of those in private business agreeing that the elites believed themselves superior and only 63 percent of government workers concurring.

Every time Biden signs another left-wing executive order (supporting tax-funded abortion, effectively eliminating Title IX protection for women’s sports, killing tens of thousands of jobs in pursuit of a radical climate agenda)[,] Trump supporters are reminded they have no alternative.

Every time the left-wing Democrats do something crazy like abolish the words mother, father, brother, sister (and two dozen other gender-specific words) from the House Rules, people are reminded that there is no alternative.

As corruption grows ($600 million stolen in Washington State unemployment funds, an estimated $31 billion stolen in California unemployment payments)[,] Americans are reminded that the left-wing elite government Democrats are not acceptable.

When Democratic governors in New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, California, and elsewhere destroy freedom of religion and establish authoritarian societal rules (which they themselves promptly break)[,] Americans are reminded that the government elites do believe they are above common citizens and the law.

As the Chinese Communists build momentum around the world – and as pro-Chinese Communists are appointed to key government positions by the Biden administration – people are reminded that there is no alternative.

Biden’s strongest ally, the teachers’ unions, have proven to be Communist China’s greatest allies. A year of non-teaching has put most American students further behind their Chinese counterparts. Years of terrible bureaucracy and incompetence have destroyed opportunity for hundreds of thousands of inner city school children. It has limited their earning capacity, their learning skills, and their ability to break out from poverty and crime-ridden neighborhoods. The emphasis on weird left-wing values and “woke” education further weakens America and tears apart the common culture which has historically made America so successful. There is a breathtaking arrogance of the teachers’ unions in refusing to reopen even after the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it is healthier and better for students to be in school.

Faced with this simple choice between students and the union – between learning and hiding – President Biden has consistently sided with the teachers’ unions against science, public health, parents, and students.

As the Montgomery County, Maryland school system explained its hypocrisy in an email to parents:

“As we prepare for our return to an in-person learning experience, we anticipate a need for adults to support the supervision of students. If you know any adults with a high school diploma/GED who would be interested in monitoring students at $15.72 per hour, please encourage them to apply to be considered for the position of classroom monitor. Duties include monitoring classrooms of teachers who are providing virtual instruction to students in the building and supporting in-person teachers.”

Note that the teachers refuse to go back to work in the schools, but it seems safe enough for common, untrained parents to monitor the students in-person.

Once again, Trump supporters – and any Americans who think this is all crazy – are left with no choice.

What Washington elites don’t understand is that Trumpism is much bigger than former President Trump.

Trumpism is a broad and growing repudiation of oligarchical billionaires, giant companies censoring our lives, international companies selling out American values to make a buck in a Communist Chinese dictatorship. Trumpism is a rejection of radical social values being imposed on our children as early as 5 or 6 years of age. It is recognition that American bureaucracy [is] so incompetent a Nigerian cyber criminal gang stole $600 million from Washington State – and the incompetent official that presided over the fraud, Suzi Levine, has now been nominated by Biden for a major job at the Department of Labor overseeing $9 billion a year. (This is cronyism at its worst. She and her husband gave the Biden campaign and Democrat organizations $400,000.)

Nothing the left can say will shake the tens of millions of Americans’ belief that the elites despise them, the bureaucrats bully and cheat them, and the news media lies to them.

This is why when the mock trial of form President Trump is finished in the US Senate, President Trump will have been acquitted.

He can thank President Biden for making it easier.[3]

Lots of us began as Democrats, but will never vote for one again.  They have veered so far to the Left that they have abandoned essentially everything that made America great.  They have become the party of the un-American racist and anti-Semite Barack Obama, who on some level has hated the United States since he was very young, growing up in Hawaii and Indonesia, and never living on the American mainland until he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles.[4]. He and his co-conspirators spent more than four years trying to destroy the candidacy and then the presidency of Donald Trump, which is treason.

Needless to say, China’s Communist rulers in Beijing believe they have triumphed.  After having unleashed the Coronavirus—as a bioweapon or inadvertently[5]—they believe China’s global domination is at hand, probably by the end of this decade, and that the United States is finished.[6]

TRUMP vs. TRUMPISM (a.k.a. “Populism” ).

President Trump may be gone but Trump-ism or general dissatisfaction with government, career politicians of BOTH Parties, or the status quo is far form over. In fact, this movement has only just begun afresh.

I doubt President Trump will be running again in four years at 78, even if his health at that time would allow it. His life is on the downswing, chronologically. However, President Biden is no spring chicken eihter and won’t probably won’t last until even 2022 midterm elections.

If the economy and/or stock markets tank in the next 2 years, the Democrats will be expelled from the White Hose and replace by an as yet unknown Republican President. Still, the country will not be going back to normal any time soon, regardless. About all we can do is try to pick ourselves up from where we may be in 2024 and move forward from there.

Turning back the clock was never an option, so MAGA was a nice slogan but little else as things turned-out. All of President Trump’s Executive Orders have now been either cancelled or reversed by President Joe Biden. Now, he owns the economy. Its all on the Democrats now. Let them eat their own cooking. Live by the Sword, Die by the Sword.

Thank you as always, Craig, for your comments.

First, my guess is that Trump will run again, as a matter of ego, assuming he is in good health. My guess is that your prediction about Biden is accurate, or very close.

Second, I do not see anyone in the GOP who has a remote chance of replacing Trump. As I have said many times here, lots of us voted straight GOP tickets in 2016 and 2020 for one reason only: Donald Trump. Otherwise, we may never vote for a Republican again. And yes, I began as a Democrat, but became an Independent when I left the U.S. Senate. I will NEVER vote for one again.

Third, Trump delivered on his promises, and even more so. Now the Democrats are attempting to undo every one of them; and they may endure a terrible price, and they know this, which is why they are so determined to bury Trump now. It is their highest priority, or so I believe.

And yes, I agree completely with your last four sentences. 🙂

Hi Tim,

All good points. Sad to see.

In a way though, Trump is rather lucky. The enormous debt and coming inflation, could set the stage for the USD being called into question as a reserve currency. The next few years are economically uncertain for many countries, including the US.

Biden will own that.

Yes, Mike, you are likely to be correct. This is why if he runs again in 2024, he may win; and the Democrats know this and are petrified. They are trying to destroy him now, desperately.

Facebook Is Censoring Again On Behalf Of China

The minders at Facebook are back to their old tricks, censoring comments that suggest the deadly Coronavirus was unleashed by China as a bioweapon or inadvertently. Indeed, it has been asserted for a long time that Chinese national agents work at Facebook, and are affecting the information that Americans receive. This would be consistent with that and treasonous.

Equally treasonous is that the Democrats are fixated on the unconstituonal impeachment of Donald Trump, while the nation suffers physically, psychologically and economically from the Chinese virus.

The fat cats in Congress have talked about throwing crumbs to those who are hurting in the form of a paltry one-time payment of $1,400 sometime in the future, which is the moral equivalent of fiddling while Rome burns. They are despicable human beings, unworthy of their offices.

Tim, You got almost ALL of this right. I’m so happy to have read it. RCS

Trump is great. He is powerful effective and now we have thousands of unaccompanied children and caravans streaming across the border. I try not to think about it– we are giving the country away. It is that simple. I call it the UN charter destruction of the US.
This helped me understand the world too: Suddenly it all makes logical sense.

I agree, Joe.

At least two groups are hurt: (1) those Americans who have been hurt physically, psychologically and economically by China’s Coronavirus pandemic, and are desperately trying to find work; and (2) the illegal aliens who are encouraged to come here by coyotes and other criminals, and who will take the jobs that Americans need, or they will become burdens on our system.

Either way, it is tragic.
