My good friend posted a few days ago about a change in the landscape of politics in the U.S., and I would also include Europe in this. The great divide isn’t so much between liberals and conservatives anymore but between globalists and nationalists. Now, globalists do tend to fall on the left while nationalists fall on the right. But our traditional understanding of political divisions has undergone a shift.
My friend brings up a good point: conservatism, as a political force, has failed.
Let me clarify.
Conservatism, which, in its basic form, asserts man’s inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, is the driving force behind the political right. But conservatism, as a political movement, has failed because conservatives have heretofore been too willing to embrace losing in order to maintain ideological purity. (I used to be guilty of this, too.)
Consider the “never-Trumpers.” This group includes ideologues who embrace conventional conservatism who also rejected Donald Trump as the Republican nominee because he isn’t a conservative. This is true, by the way. President Trump has never advocated conservatism, per se. President Trump isn’t an ideologue. He’s a pragmatist who believes in the greatness of America and was tired of watching globalists destroy our institutions and identity.
In less than 16 months in the White House, President Trump has nonetheless enacted more conservatism than any president during my lifetime, including the great Ronald Reagan. Some never-Trumpers have come around to support the president. Others remain on the sidelines with arms folded because President Trump defeated their ideologue of choice in the GOP primary two years ago. They’d rather lose an election to a globalist like Hillary Clinton. Why? Because they’re losers.
Let’s talk about the globalists now.
I have heard it said many times that President Obama was an incompetent president. I completely reject this. President Obama was and is perfectly competent. He is a perfectly competent globalist. Unemployment exploded during Obama’s presidency. It was by design. The economy stagnated. It was by design. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) made health insurance unaffordable. It was by design. During Obama’s presidency, Islamic terrorism spread and our enemies were emboldened. It was by design. America was overrun by illegal immigrants and what we call “refuterrorists.” It was by design.
If you look to Europe, entire countries such as England, Germany, Sweden and others have been overrun by refuterrorists who are raping, pillaging, and demanding that their host nations enact Sharia Law. Even though a majority of residents in these nations literally want their countries back, their globalists leaders continue welcoming the refuterrorists. The EU has even threatened member nations like Poland for not opening their borders to these Muslim thugs. Don’t the globalists see what’s being done to their own people? Of course they do. And the lawlessness and chaos are what they want.
Globalists are godless.
Globalists want to disarm their own people, knowing that law-abiding citizens will be at risk because criminals won’t give up theirs. They don’t want to save lives. They want to control lives.
Globalists want to erase borders because they know when you import the Third World, you become the Third World. This is what they want. (But know this: globalist leaders will always live First World lifestyles.)
Globalists push the climate change hoax because it is their ticket to more government, higher taxes, loss of individual liberty and a lower of standard of living for the average citizen. It’s not the climate they seek to control, but the masses.
By now you get the idea.
Globalists are never honest about their intentions. The ACA was never about affordable health care. Climate change has never been about the climate. Gun control has nothing to do with saving lives. Open borders has nothing to do with the “tired huddled masses.”
Everything globalists advocate must be opposed by those who value life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Everything globalists advocate must be opposed by those who value America and want to preserve the institutions and ideas that made us great.
Globalists lie. Globalists project by accusing their opponents of things globalists do, have done, or want to do. Globalists double-down on their lies. When their ideas fail — and they always do — they never accept responsibility. They blame their opponents, or capitalism, or the people themselves.
So when you see a Western nation in chaos and wonder why their globalist leaders don’t do something to alleviate the chaos and restore order, it’s because fear and lawlessness are what they want.
In the U.S., it doesn’t matter that unemployment is at an historic low. It doesn’t matter that the American worker has more money in his pocket thanks to the Trump tax cuts. It doesn’t matter that the two Koreas are making a real effort to establish peace. Despite all this winning, globalists continue to try to destroy President Trump. Don’t they like what’s happening? No, they don’t. To them, America doesn’t deserve to win, Americans don’t deserve to keep more of their own money, and globalists prefer a chaotic world rather than a world at peace.
