The Trump indictment is producing exactly the effect its creators intended: polarization. In his signature 1971 work,Rules for Radicals, Saul Alinsky wrote: “All issues must be polarized … One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.” Polarization is the lifeblood of the tyrannical movement that Biden is the titular head of to overthrow our democratic republic in favor of a dictatorship.
We are in a conflict between our founders’ self-rule concept and elitist rule. The Biden cabal of elitists consists of the Marxists who run the Democrat Party, the traditional political class, oligarchs, and the federal bureaucracy. They view losing power as an existential threat to them and will stop at nothing to keep it.
The disastrous results of the Biden regime’s policies leave only deception and distraction as tools for it to retain power. The oligarchs’ media have become state media, spreading regime propaganda and suppressing truth. If we fail to separate fiction from reality and see through their cynical strategy, we will lose our liberty.
The purpose of demonization is not only to divide; it is also to keep people constantly angry, agitated, and fearful of the enemy. The cabal’s followers then forgive its disastrous record and continue to believe its false promises. This is how the Biden regime avoided what its record indicated should have been a disaster in the November 2022 elections.
Some commentators say indicting Trump could work because people are tired of the drama. However, the focus on Trump is a distraction. The real target is US liberty and prosperity, which the cabal will steal if we let them.
The cabal has little choice but to demonize continuously. That is why they have so many wedge issues around which they promote polarization. Examples are racism, sexism, transgenderism, climate change, abortion, police brutality, white supremacy, insurrection, gun control, religion, critical race theory, etc. If the cabal lets people rest, they might notice the cabal’s true nature.
When Biden ran for president in 2020, the cabal promoted him as a return to normal. They got away with it because too few understood the cabal was responsible for the chaos. Now the truth is staring us in the face if we look. We must not fall for the same lie again.
Even without Trump the drama will continue unabated, so long as the cabal believes the Republican nominee threatens it.
Republicans are in an internal struggle over China: globalists (collectivism, tyranny) on one side and America-first patriots (individualism, nationalism, and liberty) on the other. The RINOs in the former group, aware of it or not, at best facilitate the cabal.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has demonstrated he stands for liberty against the cabal and its woke mob of useful idiots. He is the only America-first candidate with a record to run on besides Trump.
Almost all the other Republican potential or announced candidates supported—or did not challenge—the cabal’s big lie that an insurrection occurred on January 6, 2021. The cabal denied us the evidence so its false narrative could continue.
History contains examples of the age-old totalitarian tactic of turning an event violent to blame it on the enemy. No candidate who supported the big lie of the so-called insurrection will confront the cabal and therefore cannot win the Republican nomination.
Vivek Ramaswamy has vowed to dismantle the administrative state and is in sync with America first regarding China and the woke mob. He could be sufficient if Trump or DeSantis were not candidates with records of confronting the cabal.
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a possible Republican primary contender,called January 6 “a peaceful transition of power.” Sidestepping the charge of insurrection is insufficient. Under no reasonable definition was there an insurrection. Not saying this is failure to confront the cabal. In addition, Pompeo failed to confront the criminal careerists who run the State Department (DOS). Guatemala is the clearest example.
The federal bureaucracy—AKA the deep state—is an essential element of the cabal. Without it, demonization would not be effective because they initiate the lies from within our own government.
Demonization might return to its pre-Trump levels if a cabal-facilitating Republican were to win the party’s nomination. Republican voters, however, will not let that happen. They want a candidate with a proven record of confronting the tyrannical cabal. Only Trump and DeSantis qualify, as the polls show.
Although demonizing DeSantis would be more difficult, cabal demonization will continue unabated if he is the candidate. The cabal has no other way to keep power. We must recognize and denounce the cabal to defeat it.
