Trump the Gun Grabber
As TNMM has long been warning, Trump probably isn’t going to be the savior of the American republic. Yesterday, the Don just eclipsed any of Barack Obama’s gun grabbing moves with directives he gave to Congressional leaders who are hellbent on taking arms out of the hands of law-abiding citizens.
In a stunning betrayal of his conservative base and the Second Amendment at a gun grabbing meeting in the White House following the Parkland mass shooting (which very well could have been a CIA/FBI sponsored false flag) the President went so far as to say gun grabbing comes first, and due process comes second. Trump even dissed the NRA at the meeting.
Trump’s statement about getting to pesky notions of due process somewhere down the line after search and seizure (fuck the Fourth and Fifth Amendment, in other words) literally puts the U.S. a breath away from abject totalitarianism, as it’s quite a precedent to set in a nation that has already gutted much of the Bill of Rights with everything from the Patriot Act to NDAA to online censorship of thought crimes by Silicon Valley.
As San Fransicko liberal Diane Feinstein grinned like the cat who just ate the canary, Trump told Congressional attendees at the gun grabbing meeting:
“Take the guns first, go through due process second.”
Unfortunately, just as we suffered the Obamabots who thought their messiah could do no wrong for eight years even as he pissed down their backs with policies that led to drone bombings of schools and killing American citizens without trial, Trumpbots also possess the attention span of a gnat and will likely forget his betrayal within weeks, if not days. Certainly, before he’s up for reelection.
Nonetheless, judging by the comments on conservative web sites Trump’s supporters were taken aback by his moves. The righteous indignation won’t last. After some cheeseburgers and TV evangel telling them which new tech gadget they need to buy in between doses of Tucker Carlson on Fox News, Trump’s base will lick their wounds and continue their obsequious ways just as Obama’s base blindly followed their leader into oblivion. The cult of personality beats rational thinking every time when analyzing the herd behavior of the masses.
The betrayal was made all the more clever by the fact Trump threw out the facetious “arming teachers” narrative before going in for the kill. He really played his voters like a violin.
Oh, and those who have been making the “Trump is just playing 3D chess” argument have just about run out of legitimacy. It’s hard to explain away a move this calculated and this treacherous that easily.
The timing of Trump’s announcement of support for bans on about 200 different rifles along with even more background checks and the opening of a new Pandora’s Box banning those with a history of mental problems from purchasing firearms is, without a doubt timed very well politically. (Will depression eventually count as the definition of mental problems is ever-expanded?) The President has been riding a wave of popularity in recent weeks with approval ratings that are higher than Obama’s were at this point in his presidency. It was the perfect time to pull a sneak attack.
Here’s the takeaway. Instead of re-framing the argument about gun control and redirecting it at passing legislation to combat single mommery which is linked with 96% of the deadliest mass shootings, or to reduce the consumption of SSRI antidepressants which are also linked with nearly all recent mass shootings, or to assuage public fear by emphasizing statistics that show mass shootings are actually declining despite media whores magnifying them out of proportion, Trump chose to side with the left and push for more legislative attacks on the Second Amendment.
That is, if the Parkland shooting wasn’t a false flag in the first place. Always understand how the Deep State kick starts the Hegelian Dialectic to get what they want – by never letting a tragedy go to waste. The only question is, are Deep State power brokers now creating the very tragedies they gain power from? More curious and absurd circumstances continue to emerge from Parkland, including the fact Broward County officers were told to stand down even as the shooting proceeded in the school.
There’s little doubt which side Trump is really playing for after this move. He has been very effective window dressing for conservatives, cheered on by the sycophantic right wing press. However, as Cicero once warned:
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.
Indeed, a purported mass shooter is also less to fear than treason from within from a Trojan Horse put there by power structures whose tentacles we are only just beginning to see.
P.S. Remember Trump’s meeting with Bill Caligula Clinton weeks before he threw his hat into the ring? Perhaps one is chosen to run for the presidency rather than making the choice themselves.
P.P.S. Trump’s statement about preemptively grabbing guns (effectively saying to hell with your “rights”) conveniently dovetails with Department of Homeland Security plans to unleash precognition software onto the populace – grabbing guns before they’ve even been used in a so-called crime by monitoring the public with a growing surveillance state being developed by companies like Palantir. Soon, comments you made on social media years ago could be tweaked in a way to turn you into a potential “terrorist” who has to be stopped before you start. Once precognition software appears, it matters not that you never actually commit a crime – only that the government’s computer system said you might. (What a convenient way to stop a revolution against a tyrannical government before it even begins! Identify “resisters” and strip them of their weapons.) Yeah, shit is that bad in America, as Gray State tried to warn us before film production dropped dead.
