Was Donald Trump Elected Headless?

Bull’s eye!

“They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice … You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people!”

The Donald has never spoken truer words but also has never sunken lower into abject victimhood. Indeed, what is he waiting for—– handcuffs and a perp walk?

Just to be clear, “he” doesn’t need to be the passive object of a “WITCH HUNT” by “they”.

If Donald Trump had any kind of presidential strategy and propensity to take command, he would have had all the intercepts of Russian chatter gathered up weeks ago. He would then have had them declassified and made public, even as he launched a criminal prosecution against Obama’s hit squad—-John Brennan,

Susan Rice and Valerie Jarrett—for illegally unmasking and leaking classified information.

Such a course of action would have crushed the Russian interference hysteria in the bud.

At bottom, the latter was a rearguard invention of the Deep State and Democratic partisans. They became literally shocked and desperate for a scapegoat early last fall by the prospect that the unthinkable was happening.

Namely, the election by the unwashed masses of an outsider and insurrectionist who could not be counted upon to serve as a “trusty” for the status quo; and whose na├»ve but correct instinct to seek a rapprochement with Russia was a mortal threat to the very modus operandi of the Imperial City.

Moreover, from the very beginning, the Russian interference narrative was rooted in nothing more than standard cyber noise from Moscow that pales compared to what comes out of Langley (CIA) and Ft. Meade (NSA). And we do mean irrelevant noise....

Given that he is up against a Deep State/Dem/Neocon/ mainstream media prosecution, the Donald has no chance of survival short of an aggressive offensive of the type described above.

But that’s not happening because the man is clueless about what he is doing in the White House and is being advised by a cacophonous coterie of amateurs and nincompoops. So he has no action plan except to impulsively reach for his Twitter account.
In other words, I don't know what the uproar was over the "artistic" Kathy Griffin fake beheading of Trump. He has no functioning political head in Washington D.C. anyway.

He doesn't understand politics and how to strategically fight back. He doesn't understand foreign policy nor economic policy. In other words, he was elected headless!

That is the horror and the fact that there was no true classical liberal option in the election. The masses are not ready.

It is time for those who know better to stop supporting headless options and to call for classical liberalism. Otherwise, the masses will never learn that there is such an alternative.

  1. There is ALWAYS a classical liberal option in EVERY election. Do not vote. Do not legitimize any oligarch. Do not vote, on principal, and let everyone you know understand why you do not vote.

  2. "...unwashed masses.."? It was the electoral college that elected Trump to the White House. A mechanism that was designed to temper the potential mass hysteria of the ":unwashed masses." Who exactly are the unwashed masses anymore?
