Trump: The Achievement of Reality in Politics

Postby Fixed Cross » Tue Jan 02, 2018 2:18 pm

Capable said at one point that Trump achieved reality in politics. A bolt of electricity shot through me at that phrase and I said, that is surely the title for our next book, is it not?
We then set out thinking what we still needed to write, which is nothing, as we had already written all that needs to be said. So Capable set to work in compiling the first Volume.

Which is here.

The best New Years Gift from the Trump Agenda (Reality in Politics) is perhaps the riots in Iran.

I won't divulge too much about what lucid reasoning can deduce as to causes here, but it is clear that the friendly relations with Irans enemies as well as with their handlers must have played a part in isolating that utterly pathetic regime. Obviously no Ayatollah could tie his own shoes, let alone oppress a population without the help of some serious nations.

A second Great Gift is the influence Trumpism (love of reality) has had on Europe....

... and will continue to have in the coming years and decades.

"Indeed, just in October, the 31-year-old Sebastian Kurz was elected chancellor of Austria; he holds populist-nationalist views on immigration that can only be described as Trumpian."

Image

"Populism is now the predominant form of government in a huge, populous, and strategically crucial part of Central Europe. It is now possible to drive from the Baltic Sea all the way to the Aegean without once leaving a country ruled by a populist."

Meaning Europe is in the verge of Existence.

"Indeed, as this writer has observed, it’s a paradox that the populist-nationalists are strongest in the countries that were once dominated by Soviet-imposed communism; in reaction to that harsh experience, they are now on the right. "

No no little kitty. What happened is that the Soviet Union oppressed, where the NATO/EU/Liberals tamed their populations.
As a result the West is biologically tamed, infertile, transgender, man-phobic and close to dead. And the East is just.... untamed.

The matter of Austria is very interesting.
Non-populist Dutch leader Mark Rutte spent the first day of the new year on a visit to the new Austrian Chancellor Kurtz.
We might say he "went upriver", haha.

In any case, the two appear to have found more than a few points of agreement.

Image

Rutte came home reporting that they "largely agree". He named issues such as building a strong monetary union where everyone is obliged to do his part. What he didn't mention explicitly but implicitly signals to condone is Kurtz stance on immigration, which simply is the will of the Austrians and of all the populations in Europe. That they have had enough. Austria has been forced to welcome a number of immigrants exceeding 1% of its native population. That is obviously untenable and this has led to the unlikely scenario of a 31 year old in power.

The problem with the monetary union is that to wield it as an instrument of power, one needs to be able to control the currency like the FED does with the Dollar, and Europe is stil a very long way removed from being so politically cohesive and centralized as to be able to pull that sort of stuff. It is all quite hard to map, but it seems that a strong monetary union requires a strong federal union.

No one wants a strong federal Europe. That is: no one wants to be governed by pale criminals from Brussels.

The only way of being governed with justification, is when there is justified pride involved.

We might say that the achievement of reality in politics happened first through Vladimir Putin. But this was Russian politics, which is a completely alien universe, compared to American politics. I, as a Dutchman, have much more to do with American politics than with Russian politics, at least in the sense of how my own government works, how it is embedded in financial structures that are shared across the West. In this financial paradigm, Trump is the first who is not a complete fantasy-image but an actual player, an agent, an actor. Not a play-act but someone who acts, does things, rather than merely saying things and having his handlers do the exact opposite, of which Obama was a shining example.

But about Russia and Putin. It is not entirely random that the crazies in the US tied Trump to Putin in their thinking, as both men actually are men, persons with a will, and a character (and a fate). They are both men that have worked "the machine" for their entire professional lives, and who managed, through unbelievably intelligent maneuvering and playing with magnificent skill and sensibility the apparatuses of their respective states, to manifest a position of leadership in their countries that had not existed in either of these countries for at least half a century.

What remains now, is the achievement of reality in European politics. I will carefully suggest something now: Russia is European nation. I mean, this is a fact, Petersburg and Moscow are European cities, the fertile black triangle (Chernozem) of Russia is European as well. Its authors are Europes most and best respected. And this has been Putins message as well: let us in, stop demonizing us, you are demonizing yourself.

I am not saying Europe should consider inviting Russia to be a EU member instead of Turkey, even though naturally it is infinitely preferable to have Russia as a member than Turkey - Russia raises cultural standards and military safety, where Turkey completely demolishes both. But the EU is not my favourite institution at all, so I won't advocate its expansion. However, it is necessity that Russia is accepted as a European nation, incidentally the one that beat back Hoitlorrr.

Ill put it stronger: Europe is nothing without Russia. It is not a continent without Russia, nor can there by a European society without Russia. It is the leading nation of the East, and all the countries with which the EU was expanded under Oinklish pressure are states that are cultural shadows of Russia, the only value of which for the EU establishment at that point was as bounty stolen from Russian realm. But that didn't work. Russia began to grow stronger, and Europe started to collapse. Some things you just can't change.

One of the first steps European leaders of industry must take now is to propose to further the plans Putin put forth for the intercontinental, Transsiberian, Transalaskan highway between London and New York. Vast, vast profits will be inevitable for all involved parties, profits economic as well as cultural. Such a highway could become a spine to an entirely new-born world of optimism and cultural advance.

The Russians were the first to put a man in space. They are the boldest nation under the Sun. Europe must be very thankful to have this power now willing to do so much in service of its continent, which still needs to prove to be worthy of Russian favours and loyalty. And that would, as I see it, be the achievement of reality in European politics: to find a way in which Europe can remain Americas first ally as well as a continent that has Russia among its nations.
