The Current War in America

Well, here we are, on the front.  We're living in a war-zone.

...A third lesson Trump should learn is that the establishment he routed and the city he humiliated are out to break him as they broke LBJ on Vietnam, Nixon on Watergate, and almost broke Reagan on the Iran-Contra affair.

While the establishment may no longer be capable of inspiring and leading the nation, so detested is it, it has not lost its appetite or its ability to break and bring down presidents.

And Trump is vulnerable, not only because he is an envied outsider who seized the highest prize politics has on offer, but because his agenda would cancel out that of the elites

I don't think that The Donald has ever seen opposition as well-funded, massive, or all-encompassing as what he's running into now.  A good portion of the US Government is included in 'the opposition,' remember.

...And Trump not only appears to have no desire to yield to his enemies in politics and the media, he has no choice, as he is now the personification of a surging Middle American counterrevolution.

Undeniably, there are great numbers of Americans who agree with the libels the Times showered on Trump and, by extension, his backers whom Hillary Clinton designated “the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic … deplorables.”

But by whatever slurs they are called, Middle Americans seem prepared to fight. And history shows that such people do not calmly accept the loss of what is most precious to them — the country they grew up in, the country they love.

They have turned to Trump to lead them. Why should he not, having been raised up by them, and knowing in his own heart what the establishment and the media think of him and would do to him?

Ten days in, and already it is “Game On!”

You betcha. 

And besides having superior personally-owned firepower, we have Gen. Mattis.

UNfortunately, we still have dishonorable weasels like McCain and McConnell in the Senate. I am NOT optimistic.

Maybe he should move the capital. Or leave it to sink, and just move himself.
