After Trump, There Comes the Great Question

 

We can assume that the Democrat Party will lose the coming midterms largely due to the public lynching of Justice Kavanaugh in his confirmation hearings. The Republicans can probably count on the Democrat candidates using similar tactics against numerous Republican candidates in the most highly contended states. This will backfire on them to the extremes. It is even rather likely that President Trump will easily be reelected should, as expected, the economy continue to roll along with a future that appears bright. This will only be more likely should the Republicans experience a red tide flowing fast carrying Congress securely behind the President and his work of bolstering the economic conditions. The problem comes after President Trump for the Republicans to continue to keep the Trump support of what we call the Silent Majority or the Middle American Normals. Vice President Pence is not a highly exciting personality which would stir the base to come out and vote. By 2024, the Democrats will have a completely new and different body of candidates. They will probably run a fresh face filled with the vigor of youth which will produce the kind of excitement which brings out the younger voters, the very kind of voters which elected President Obama and before him President Clinton. The Republicans will be required to come up with a Presidential candidate who can stir the base and get the working class voters to remain steady with the Republicans. The one person we can see who would bring out such passion would be United States Ambassador Nicky Haley. In addition, Nicky Haley could be the woman to claim the treasured title of first woman President. This would be a great thing as she is an invigorating and special personality as well as a great and steady proponent of conservative thought and policy.

Here is where the problem comes, after twelve years of holding the Presidency, it will be very difficult for the Republicans to hold to power beyond, as the pendulum of politics tends to inexorably swing one way and then inevitably swings back. Finally, even should the excitement of having the first woman President, after the period of Republican hold of Congress will also become challenged, and if Ms. Haley does not have a supporting Congress, she will not be able to accomplish her preferred policy and might fall victim to the same difficulties which plagued President George H. W. Bush with having to allow the raising of taxes in order to receive the votes necessary to at least salvage part of the conservative agendas. No matter what, eventually the Democrats will take the White House and if this should come after a near record time of holding the Presidency by the Republicans, history teaches that any Democrat President, especially if this does not occur until 2032, then the Congress will also be under Democrat rule and the mainstream Republican establishment will have recovered sufficiently to have returned the Republican agenda to the unexciting middle of the road policies which has seemingly always put the base to sleep as it lacks vision. This is what led to the initial two years under President Obama where he also had an unchallengeable majority in the House of Representatives and a cloture proof sixty or greater number of Senators. This was how President Obama managed to force through Obamacare and virtually anything else they chose to pass. This is the great problem which has faced every past correction from the seemingly inexorable move leftward by American politics. This will also have a devastating effect on the rest of the world, as the United States once again will change their loyalties away from their former traditional allies, especially in the Middle East, and ally with former adversaries. But with whom will the Democrats ally?

 

The next time the Democrats capture the White House the only mystery will be whether they ally on the side of the Sunni or the Shiite base of Islam. This decision will determine whether they will support Saudi Arabia or Iran, as they are the leaders of these two variants of Islam. Whichever side is chosen, the reality will also show a new threat to traditional America. The Democrat Party is at the forefront of their new identity. This new Democrat is currently represented by such as Linda Sarsour and Keith Ellison who both have connections with CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) and connections with the Muslim Brotherhood and even potentially with Hamas. The main reasoning behind the Islamic preference for the Democrat Party is largely due to their immigration policy which favors immigrants from the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region which is heavily Islamic. Further, the members of Islamic faiths are very politically conscious and realize that power only comes when you concentrate your power in one group which maximizes your influence. It currently appears that the Islamic power base will be cultivated and grown within the Democrat Party over the Republican Party. Their hard work has been rewarded with Keith Ellison being promoted into the second highest position in the party. The apparent partnering of the Democrats and Islam makes little sense until you realize they also have a common enemy, the Judeo-Christian Ethics. The problem in marrying the remainder of their seeming alliance is easily explained by the overly optimistic belief in their powers and abilities of having an ability powered by their overt belief in the rightfulness of their political agenda to overcome all obstacles if only they are able to take power. By the time the Democrats retake power in the White House, the face of Europe will be changing as the Islamic influx creates political unrest. The Democrats will promise to keep the United States out of any European war and not facing the problems which resulted from the two World Wars. This will be a very appealing platform which will likely be successful.

 

What will also have come into being is a sufficient number of Islamic voting blocks which can carry certain states for the Democrat Party. These states will be, but not limited to, Michigan, Minnesota, Virginia and possibly the Carolinas. Many of these states are the decisive states necessary for carrying the Electoral College and attaining the White House. This will provide the Islamic blocks considerable power in the Democrat Party. It could be that power which may cause the Democrats to break that promise about not entering into the problems of Egypt and further into the imbroglio all but guaranteed to have worsened in the Middle East. Our best guess is that the Democrats will be beholding to Sunni Islam which will place the United States in direct conflict with Iran as well as possibly, should alliances remain as they are currently, against Russia. The wild card would be whether or not the Chinese desire getting involved or take the intelligent path of remaining aloof and out of all wars which they do not choose to start. The truth is that we are guaranteed that the future is going to be interesting if nothing else. The question is will time change Islam or will it remain set on the path of chasing after world conquest as they believe the Quran demands of them. Should the Muslim Brotherhood remain a power determining the policies and beliefs for Sunni Islam, then we can be assured that world conquest will remain their goal. They will desire to use their power within the Democrat Party in order to serve just that goal.

 

If anyone believes that the United States is in turmoil currently, just wait until the late 2020’s to the mid 2030’s and what is coming. Imagine the conflict which will arise should one party begin to try and replace the Constitution with a new set of laws which, as time passes, begin to point that they are attempting to place Sharia in place of the Constitution. The civil conflict which this could instigate would make these current altercations pale by comparison. That will be because the Christians, who are usually the quiet or at least polite, will be up in arms and become the strongest of Constitutionalists. Things might even start to become uncomfortable sufficiently for the Jews, who currently are very aligned with the Democrat Party, start to depart out of fear and a measure of survival instinct. If the rise of Islamic interests in the Democrat Party does not give the Jews reason for pause, then they are truly lost to their faith. The Muslim power base and ability to fund campaigns for the Democrats will have them a strong replacement for the Jews who will not have the numbers or financial clout to compete with the Islamic power base. Should these events take place, there will be many Jews fleeing to Israel, as Europe will no longer be a safe refuge. The real question is whether or not the Islamic powers through the Muslim Brotherhood actually take power in the United States as their well laid out plans which are no secret.

 

We may be sounding like fear-mongers, but the above link is real and what we have laid out here is also a distinct probability. We have traced this slow progression of the hate of anti-Semitism which has slowly but inexorably grown stronger and stronger in places which many claimed it could never grow. This growth has been in the far left and not the right. This is why the left and Democrat Party have become the natural home for the Islamic interests. We have witnessed the expression of Israel hatred from the far left and exemplified by Linda Sarsour and many of her activities. How all of the parties and forces in play will make sure that American political theater continues to defy predictions and make turns and spins which nobody could ever have conceived could occur is anyone’s guess. Who could have predicted that President Obama would be elected at the time that Ronald Reagan gained his reelection and it appeared that Vice President Bush would follow for a full two terms, and he lost to a relative unknown governor from Arkansas. Imagine a time when we had little knowledge of a family known as the Clintons. Of all the things which have occurred in American politics, the one prediction which came true in spades was the warning from President Eisenhower to keep a tight control over the military and its potential marriage with a defense industry which would drain funds from the American public at unstoppable rates if allowed to go loose. Well, they went loose and America reaped the misery. We are, unfortunately, not quite as true seeing as was President Eisenhower, but then he spoke of what he knew and you cannot fault him for the ensuing mess because we did not heed his warnings. What will be coming down the road to us looks to be of equal a threat to the American dream and a Constitution which has never known and potentially will never see its equal outside of the bible, the book which began the entire idea of personal freedoms and national liberties.

Stopping Trump More Important than Serving the People

 

There is a revolution going on and it is being fought on every conceivable front. The media is using every type, traditional, social and new, and taking this fight to the highest pitches to screaming from hilltops to digging the dirt in the lowest of valleys. Character assassination, threats of violence, death threats, cursing people’s mothers, nothing is considered too low or out of bounds. Impeachment is the most repeated cry to the point that it has become the rallying cry of the revolution. Oh, let us not leave out that there has formed a group called; “The Revolution” and its members claim to be legion. There is also the Hillary Clinton front which includes the themes that the Russians influenced the election, Wikileaks is an evil group of plotters, former FBI Director Comey was out to get her, the media stabbed her in the back, the Democrat Party machinery was broke and broken, there were plots to have her lose, its everybody’s fault but Hillary’s because she is the ultimate victim. If this was a Shakespearean tragedy, she would have been the virginal damsel distressed and in the end sacrificed for no real reason other than her constant screeching drove everyone mad.

 

Believe it or not, all of these things and more are plotting the 2018 election campaign and we can predict its theme from the Democrat side. They are going to tout how Obamacare was forced to fail by President Trump because he refused to enforce the financial assistance to the insurance companies knowing it would crash the entire system. The new solution is more government and a single payer plan backed entirely by the government driving many insurance companies into insolvency, which will be Trump’s fault. Then the claim will show how when President Obama was in office and the Democrats controlled Congress they accomplished so many things and now the Republicans are ignoring the people and have a do nothing Congress. This is true but it is due to disruptions of the system to the point that no subject can be brought to the floor as all the time is consumed trying to discredit Trump. It is working. The Democrat aim is to take the House of Representatives such that they can bring Articles of Impeachment against President Trump and perhaps also Attorney General Sessions along with whatever other Cabinet Secretaries they can invent some charge. Then if Trump appears to be on his way to a second term which the Democrats cannot prevent, they will aim for reaching a large enough majority that with a few Republicans, such as John McCain, to be able to find President Trump guilty of the Impeachment charges and thus removed from office. Once they have accomplished this, the Democrats will start initiating their agenda always with the threat of Impeachment looming in the background to intimidate newly installed President Pence while the Senate refuses to approve any of his attempted appointments for the new Vice President. Do not fear, as soon as Pence stops playing ball, the Congress will impeach him as well and as the next in line will be the Speaker of the House, as there will be no Vice President, then we may end up with President Pelosi or worse, President Keith Ellison. Forget the Founding Fathers; we would have a new founding with the Founding Imams.

 

Founding Fathers vs Founding Imams

Should we have a President Ellison the world can expect the policies of Barack Obama back on the front burners and supersized. Israel will become the red-haired, freckled stepchild left out on the stoop in the middle of an Alaskan winter. Socialism modeled after Sharia will be the position of the Congress fully backing everything a President Ellison desires. The United States will never hold another election and the Congress will become simply an amen chorus or dissolved to be replaced by a body called some form of Deputy of the Revolution and the rest of the government will be transformed. A new tax will emerge called the Jiyza which will be somewhere around one third of earned money and be applied only to those who do not follow Islam. Islam will be initiated as the national religion of the United States of Allah, the new name which can still be referred to as the USA. Things will radically change and there will be no turning from this new path. The Supreme Court will be dissolved and the new Sharia Court of the United States of Allah will be installed with all Imams of prominence in the Islamist movement will be chosen by a board made up of the heads of CAIR and the Islamic Society of America (which will need to change its name somewhat). Soon thereafter all crosses and Jewish Star of David or Ten Commandments and other religious symbols will be torn off churches, synagogues, temples and other places of worship. Only the symbols of Islam will be permitted in the public places. No public preaching or evangelical events or any form of proselytizing will be permitted except for those of Islam. Instead of Iran, the newest best friend of the USA will be likely Saudi Arabia where President Ellison will soon pressure the Royal Family to retire and be replaced by a Sunni Council of Imams who will rule in the Wahhabi strict form of Sunni Islam. This form of Islam will become the one practiced with favor from the government in the new USA and Egypt’s President Sisi will be brought under great pressure and when Egypt had another election, the winner of the Presidency and the vast majority of the Legislature will be members of the Muslim Brotherhood, guaranteed. President Sisi will then be charged with heresy and receive a death sentence. We cannot have a hero for those opposed to rally around. The Egyptian military will go through a cleansing, as would have the military of the USA. Such things will occur with unbelievable rapidity that any time to revolt to prevent this takeover will be next to impossible. The borders will be thrown open and there will be an immediate immigration of hundreds of thousands of Sunni Muslims until there are sufficient Jihadists to protect the Caliph of the USA.

 

All of this is theoretical and probably beyond the reason of any normalcy. This would not be normal by any stretch of the imagination, but we have very active imaginations. We will possibly see Keith Ellison as a candidate for President most likely in 2028 should President Trump prove to become successful and popular to such an extent that the Republicans appear probable winners of the 2024 election with Mike Pence as their candidate. After twelve years of Republican Presidents in the White House, the next election is all but guaranteed to elect a Democrat. We can expect Hillary to attempt another shot at the office of the President and another fail which will not be her fault but that of the Democrat Party which deserted her, as she would probably lose in the primaries. Furthermore, should President Trump be reelected we can expect the foaming at the mouth insanity to tamper down and slowly fade as what is the use when he will be out of office anyways as he will not be eligible to run again. Still, the Republicans, if they do not find real leadership, will probably be lucky if they can lower taxes, let alone replace Obamacare. We have not seen such ineptitude since Junior High School and the elected school president’s attempts to make the faculty not assign homework on the weekends. We all believed that the amount assigned increased after the student council’s attempt to enforce this motion which they passed all but unanimously, there was a couple of realists who abstained, if we remember correctly. How the Republicans are going to be able to face their constituents and claim they were unable to move on their agenda because the Democrats were mean to them is beyond our imagination, though the mainstream, gerrymandered Representatives in the House will return but the Senators will have a tough sell outside of Wyoming, Texas and Oklahoma.

 

The disruptions by the Democrat underground supporters are working to perfection and a virtual coup is in action and taking place. They are obstructing the government all but paralyzing both Houses of Congress preventing them from enacting even the most popular items of the Republican promises to the public. These are replacing or simply repealing most of Obamacare and lifting a fair share of the tax burden such that the economy thrives and jobs return in numbers. What is odd is the jobs are out there but most require a fair amount of skills and knowledge of technology or the use of technology. There is an Executive Order which will attempt to persuade companies to open up apprenticeships which would pay employees as they learn and once they become competent at their position they would then receive a bonus and a large increase in salary commensurate on their positions. Apprenticeships are not something new to President Trump though this variety would be demanding more than competing on a game show, this would be real training on the job and results would be demanded. One can only feel sorry or be looking forward to the introduction of the new college and university graduates to the real world and the job scene where there are certain expectations and time-outs and sensitivity corners do not exist, or at least we never ran into any but then we both worked in technical fields with computers and micro-electronics such as medical equipment, satellite communications equipment, office systems software, data base management and other specialties. We also needed to learn much of our skills on the job as technology completely transformed our positions. These changes would not have been possible without the necessary technological discoveries, inventions and supplemental systems all developed and married into the systems with which we worked. These items we operated as systems or repaired as units were all adapted for new uses for which they were not necessarily originally intended as our jobs attempted to keep at the fore of technology.

 

The Democrats will not be able to prevent this even if they block any legislation from consideration as President Trump can initiate such programs simply by making speeches and tweets about the advantages of these type of programs and how these apprentices will be trained tailor made for their positions and once they have the initial training they can then have their knowledge broadened by other programs run all but completely by the employers themselves. There is the possibility we will see university styled training centers where instead of paying to attend you are paid to attend and there will be a job waiting for you once you graduate. These schools will have programs which last one, two, three or possibly more but unlikely. We need to remember that the Army can train helicopter pilots and the Navy and Air Force can train jet fighter and other pilots within two years, so three years is even a longer time than most would ever need despite the probability that these trade schools will also offer some additional coursework to round out the students, sorry, apprentices. We can expect President Trump to go straight to the industries and companies where many of his ideas can be utilized successfully and will not require anything from Congress to implement once they have been brought onboard.

 

This is one way that President Trump can implement parts of his economic progress campaign. Still, much of what must be accomplished requires Congress. President Trump should start to take the initiative and regularly call the leadership of both parties and other times the Republican leadership or Democrat leadership, depending on who is required, and suggest parts of his programs be brought before the House and Senate and run through its paces and form a piece of legislation and pass it on to the White House for signing. Warn the members and leadership of the Congress that as President, Trump expects clean legislation which does not include any extemporaneous or additional attachments or riders and expressly will not accept additional spending on other items along with his legislation or he will edit the legislation, veto it and send it back for the expected revisions, period. President Trump needs to read Congress the riot act, as they are about as dysfunctional a group of supposed adults that has ever graced the face of this earth and are heading for a disaster at the polls for both parties. This could be done through just the leadership with them called to the White House for a meeting held in the Oval Office instead of some meeting room as usual as this will impress the message with more weight if only because the Oval Office is somewhat intimidating and is like the President’s nest.

 

The other means, which is more risky, would be to address a joint session of Congress with the Justices of the Supreme Court invited to listen and be present, and before a televised speech set out his agenda, announce the introduction of legislation the White House is delivering to Congress (turning and handing a tall stack of bound pieces of legislation such that there are numerous separate bound pieces and giving them to the Speaker and the Vice President to bring to their respective sides of Congress would be an impressive and unprecedented move) legislation the White House expects expedited and serious consideration sending clean legislation on these important and critical matters which are necessary if the nation is to remain viable. The President has proven he can stick to a message if it is his message and that can be written into any speech, you just need to meet with the President and then do as he has requested. Such a move could break the logjam in Congress and even more likely if the people respond to an appeal to tell their Congressional representatives, both in the House of Representatives and in the Senate, that the people approve of what the President proposes. The President can apparently in an off-hand remark note how he is assured that those opposing this historic opportunity to right the Ship of State and get America working again will make themselves heard and receive glorious reporting supporting them in the media, but then caution Congress that there is the other side and its members are growing and will not forget who worked to build America and who were out there attempting to drag her asunder. With a great speech, better than his first Address to the joint session of Congress for the initial State of the Union Address, President Trump can become almost Reaganesque and accomplish exactly what he desired and is obviously required to do exactly as we stated, right the Ship of State and gets America working again.

 

The Revolution, as the combined forces countering any movement while the conservatives are in control and demanding that only the leftist most progressive movement will be tolerated, the people be damned, are calling themselves, has controlled the story so far in Washington D.C. It is time for other voices to be heard above the din of dissent. Washington has reached the end of this path and they face a crossroads with one direction being the Trump agenda or something resembling such and the other the continued din of dissent demanding with a dedicated drumbeat the dissolution of decency and a devotion to the duty of desolation which is their desire. Those are the two directions and the United States has been traveling along to the ditty of drudgery which sounds the din of dissent and the people deserve better. If those on the left, especially the extremists, have a better plan for America, place it before Congress, get it passed and give the President, the duly elected President even if you think the system is rigged, the chance to choose whether it can be made to work. President Trump will either sign it or veto it hopefully with reasons, even if they come in the form of Tweets. This war of words, and sometimes things substantive and capable of causing injury, has got to end and the people’s desired progress be made or at least attempted. Remember that what has been done by the left to impede the right will be available for the right to stop the left and this is a cycle that goes nowhere.

 

The people desire that things move along and they will get their desire one way or another, one retains the principles with which the nation was founded and built and the other ties that down replacing it with their desired form of governance which will permanently seat them in absolute power. We have studied history and have seen this power-play before and it always results in the same ending, the slaughter of the useful idiots once power has been secured and the formation of a secretive police force which enforces loyalty above all else. The end result is never pretty and should this become the future then abandoning ship as quickly as possible and while it is still legal is the advised reaction. The requirement to reach this state will take only one or two terms of the leftists holding both houses of the Congress and the Presidency. That second term will never really end, as the United States is a power like no other before her. Thusfar America has been good but democracies, even republics, only last so long and they always fail in the same manner, excessive government debt, excessive debt amongst the people (credit card and student loans are the two killers today), high unemployment, much discontent, deadlocked governance unable to bring the people forward, disconnected youth with no roots in history or knowledge of from where their government came, and a disloyal group which honestly believes that they and only they should be permitted the right to rule because they know, they really do know. Those grounded in history and knowledge of the past know what is coming and fear it with great trepidation and fear as they watch the potential threat to their beloved governance and know there is little which can be done to prevent the coming apocalypse. It was inevitable as soon as the nation was founded and it will come and destroy it all just as sure as the sun will rise in the east tomorrow and set in the west today. These are the tides of governance which were written for a warning which has never been heeded, will it be heeded this time, doubtful. The name for it is the Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance (see below). It has an accompanying theory explained below.

 

Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance

Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance

 

A people will set for themselves the great challenge of self-rule and revolt against their governance having been filled with great faith in a better means of governing. They will take up courage and stride forth as a new nation based on the rights of the people and the right to ownership of the means of your own support and right to land protected by law. Freedom and liberty will rule and soon as infrastructure is available, there will be great wealth, an abundance. Abundance will lead some to avarice taking more and more but the abundance will soon appear as normal and the people will be contented to the point of blindness to what is occurring around them. The problems will start to become apparent but they will have their rightful share as did their parents and their parents back many generations all the way to that glorious revolution learned about in grade school and seldom mentioned afterwards, we wonder why that was left to be forgotten. Ah, who cares, I have my job and am busy with life, far too busy to be concerned with such things. This apathy opens the door for a dependent class to be born. General welfare becomes the new way of eradicating poverty and keeping the people complacent. Apathy is joined by and reinforced with a dependent class who now depend completely on government and thus are the tools of the corrupt. This leads to the overthrow and the return to an oppressive rule which nobody really knows or understands how it happened as it was so swift at the end, a whirlwind of events. The lost freedoms and liberties will not be seen again by any of the generation then alive as they will all serve in bondage to an elite few. This eventually will lead to an increase in faith in mankind and a desire to rule oneself. This faith to courage and courage to revolution and revolution to abundance and here we go again. Check history as it is full of such things from Caesar to Chairman Mao and Pol Pot, it is always the same grinding of the wheel, of the Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance.
