Understanding the Opposition to Trump

By Patty On May 18th, 2017

It’s complicated.  But then again, it’s not.  All you need to do is “follow the money.”   There are trillions of dollars at stake and the Establishment politicians in Washington DC – Republicans and Democrats alike – will lose bigly if Trump’s MAGA agenda succeeds.  It’s Globalism versus America First and it’s about time this was addressed head on.

Multinational trade agreements favor multinational corporations – the very same entities pouring money into the Establishment politicians in Washington DC.  Who do you think actually writes our laws?  Not the POTUS and not our elected Congressmen/women.  Our laws are written by interest groups – K Street lobbyists and think tanks beholden to their financial benefactors.  Tom Donahue, National Chamber of Commerce supports Senator John McCain;  is it any wonder Senator McCain speaks out against Trump and America First?

Have you ever wondered how it is that politicians from Washington DC can retire with millions of dollars in the bank on salaries under $200,000/year?

From Conservative Treehouse:

President Trump understands what lies at the heart of the opposition.  DO YOU?
♦Multinational corporations purchase controlling interests in various national industry and economic elements of developed industrial western nations.
♦The Multinational Corporations making the purchases are underwritten by massive global financial institutions, multinational banks.
♦The Multinational Banks and the Multinational Corporations then utilize lobbying interests to manipulate internal political policy of the targeted nation state(s).
♦With control over the targeted national industry or interest, the multinationals then leverage export of the national asset (exfiltration) through trade agreements structured to the benefit of lesser developed nation states – where they have previously established a proactive financial footprint.
The ‘America First’ Trade Doctrine upsets the entire construct of this multinational export/control dynamic. President Trump focuses exclusively on bilateral trade deals with specific policy only looking out for the national interests of the United States.
Under President Trump’s Trade positions the exfiltration of U.S. national wealth is essentially stopped.  This puts the multinational corporations, globalists who previously took a stake-hold in the U.S. economy with intention to export the wealth, in a position of holding interest of an asset they can no longer exploit.
If you can see the ramifications and grasp the inherent anger, you can begin to understand the severity of the opposition to President Trump.

  1. to the point… good post.

    The Problem is Patty we are not playing to people that are using reason and logic. It’s all emotion the facts are irrelevant to them.

  2. Yes, absolutely.

    I’ll add that BigMegaCorp is in favour of large continental blocks, such as the EU, for the obvious reason that one EU law is imposed on 28 (soon to be 27) nations. In a Europe of independent and sovereign states, GlobalMegaCorp would have to pay off 28 sets of politicians and bureaucrats.

    Some Leftists understand this. The Peter Shores and Tony Benns (anti-Brussels Labour politicians of old) instinctively knew it. Alas, Leftism has migrated away from thinking and elevates feelings and emotions above all now.

  3. ” Multinational banks “ are at the heart of the opposition

    Excellent code-word for you know who!

    Patty and Troll are one body and one mind with Alex Jones / Allan from Aberdeen now!

    MAGA!!

  4. Leftism has migrated away from thinking and elevates feelings and emotions above all now. it has never been anything but that.

  5. Troll, I think a lot of people understand more than they want to understand. They are emotionally invested in following the crowd because it feels good to be accepted and also because the Left claims the Moral High Ground.

    I’m not sure about Phantom – who is calling me a bigot/anti-semite in his comment above – but I’m not writing for his understanding.

    But there are a lot of other people who just haven’t had the time or resources to investigate what is driving this hatred/insanity –

    It is very interesting to note that Flyover Country – supposedly uneducated and unsophisticated – know that they are being taken to the cleaners by the elite Establishment in the NYC/DC corridor – this, despite all of the shaming and propaganda.

    MAGA

  6. I don’t think that Troll or Patty are Jew haters.

    But you two have started to be allied with Jew haters ( Allan ) and adopting their exact language ( international bankers, from scary New York )

    Trump is admired and supported by white nationalist nazi types. You are swimming in that sea, hearing the same dog whistles.

  7. Phantom: you’re doubling down on stupid now. I’m not calling you “stupid” – I’m saying that the whole discussion of anti-semitism because the word “international” and “banking” are seen together is stupid.

  8. //Have you ever wondered how it is that politicians from Washington DC can retire with millions of dollars in the bank on salaries under $200,000/year?

    I think a lot of people understand more than they want to understand.//

    If that’s the case, what are Americans going to do about it? If the people there are aware that they’re being constantly ripped off – are paying lawmakers big salaries, and the same lawmakers don’t make laws in their interests, as you say – then isn’t it high time that the American people gave the job to someone with a bit of integrity for a change?

    The constant refrain of European Marxists used to be that the US is run by big business. Patty and Pete are now saying that those Marxists were right all along.

  9. “The constant refrain of European Marxists used to be that the US is run by big business. Patty and Pete are now saying that those Marxists were right all along.”

    Seems that way, doesn’t it. I think Globalism – with an elite few controlling everything and the masses without a stake or voice – well, that does seem a lot like communism/marxism. It’s always the same story.

    America is “exceptional” not because we are better but because we broke the mold – with “government by the people and for the people.”

    MAGA

  10. exceptional = out of the ordinary

  11. Putting an end to exploitation of Americans for the benefit of the Globalist:

    “The ‘America First’ Trade Doctrine upsets the entire construct of this multinational export/control dynamic. President Trump focuses exclusively on bilateral trade deals with specific policy only looking out for the national interests of the United States.”

  12. Patty

    How are you solving anything by casting your lot with a corrupt insider with a bad business record who is endorsed by David Duke and skinheads?

    You never used to worry about bankers before, say when the economy was tanking in 2008. But now, after a recovery over the past seven years, all of a sudden you are concerned about banks.

    The main US banks won’t lend to the oft bankrupted Trump anymore, so I understand why he dislikes them – why again are you so suddenly concerned about banks?

  13. //America is “exceptional” not because we are better but because we broke the mold – with “government by the people and for the people.”//

    But even if that was once the case (which I very much doubt; before the US became completely democratic certain European countries had pipped them to the post), it’s certainly not the case now, according to what you write here.

    Your laws are made by the best politicians money can buy, you say. Congress is completely in the pocket of corporate interests. Corruption is everwhere.

    And now on top of that you probably have the most erratic and lunatic leader the world has seen since Idi Amin.

    Really! You guys should study Enda Kenny as a profile in true leadership and integrity.

  14. Excellent post Patty!

    Noel, to your point, what the American people are going to do about it I would say that we have started by electing President Trump! The opposition that is spilling forth just shows how deep the problem is. The American people know now that they are getting ripped off, but what to do about it and who to un-elect is the main point. All of the John McCain’s and Lindsey Graham’s of the Senate need to go, IMO.

  15. Phantom and Noel:

    I see nothing lunatic, erratic, or corrupt about Trump.

    I think you might be projecting?

  16. You insult the memory of Idi Amin Dada by associating him with Donald Trump.

  17. Charles, Troll, Pete: here is great commentary from The Con. Treehouse thread:

    “Globalism is really just neo-colonialism. When the colonial powers went to foreign lands, they set up trading posts. They took advantage of the fact that the places they went to had weak or non-existent local governments and set up their own rules — to their advantage.

    After WWII, there was a period of de-colonialization. Nationalism was rightly seen as the mechanism by which former colonies could take control of their own land, resources, and economies. The catch phrase for that period was “the self-determination of peoples”, and nationalism was not demonized as it is today.

    But those who profited from colonialism were not happy with the loss of their power and riches. They re-grouped and came up with globalization as the means to re-capture their lost power and glory. Multilateral trade agreements overrode national laws pertaining to commerce and trade. Transnational organizations usurped national governments. And all nations became colonies of the transnational globalists.

    President Trump and his administration are trying to undo globalization and re-assert national sovereignty. This is the second American Revolution.”

  18. Noel, Enda Kenny would be eaten alive in American politics, as good a man as he is. I think it’s hard to project governance of the country with 2 to 4 million people like Ireland onto a continental superpower that is the United States.

    Like David said in a previous post, at this point in his presidency Obama already had the Nobel Peace Prize. The left is not fawning like that over trump that’s for sure. Trump may not have a good presidency due to the fact that the opposition is so large and well-funded. It remains to be seen.

  19. This almost sounds communist/socialist thought as written by a high school student.

    But those who profited from colonialism were not happy with the loss of their power and riches. They re-grouped and came up with globalization as the means to re-capture their lost power and glory.

    And multinational deals are most certainly not going away. The US can opt out of them, but Asia and Europe and the rest of world will still be increasingly linked in such deals.

  20. Regarding colonialism. I seem to remember that the definition of a colony was a country that exported low price raw materials to the mother country, and then re- imported expensive finish goods.

    Using this definition, the United States is just a colony of China!

    And phantom, comparing Trump to Idi Amin is off the reservation. You may need a power nap, LOL.

  21. Charles, I already said that it was a terrible insult to Idi ” VD ” Amin, conqueror of the British Empire.

  22. the open minded left….. remember these are our moral better so say Phantom, Mahons, and the rest of their ilk….

    Alt-left advocates for net neutrality, who say they want a “free and open internet,” want to ban the Drudge Report.

    Members of the alt-left who have been tied to violent protests in the past picketed outside the Federal Communications Commission on Thursday in protest of Chairman Ajit Pai’s proposal to reverse net neutrality rules. The FCC will vote to undue the Obama era Title II rule that classified Internet service providers as utilities, subjecting them to more federal regulation.

    Protesters covering their faces held signs that read “Ban Drudge,” with a no symbol over the Drudge Report, the highly trafficked news website run by Matt Drudge. Other protesters held signs to ban other news websites, including Breitbart and InfoWars.

  23. I support an unfettered free press, and would completely oppose what these antifa snowflakes want to do.

    As I oppose your Trump when he seeks to repeal the first amendment by ” opening up libel laws “

  24. It’s Globalism versus America First and it’s about time this was addressed head on.

    Multinational trade agreements favor multinational corporations – the very same entities pouring money into the Establishment politicians in Washington DC

    WT actual Fing F?

    Multinational corporations, privately owned international conglomerates like these guys?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trump_Organization

    How many times have we heard that the supposed appeal of the Donpster is that he’s a businessman as opposed to a politician? Trump is the epitome incarnate of the establishment multinational corporation chief and as for entities pouring money into ‘establishment politicians in Washington DC’ here’s the Donpster’s son from a few years ago:

    “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Donald Trump Jr. told a Manhattan real estate conference in 2008, according to an account posted on the website of trade publication eTurboNews. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

    http://time.com/4629308/donald-trump-business-deals-world-map/

    Are the people who speak about ‘globalisation’ ‘multinationals’ and ‘the establishment’ yet don’t see these things in Trump wilfully obtuse or just plain stupid?

    Charles Baudelaire’s

    The finest trick of the devil is to persuade you that he does not exist

    Seems appropriate here. Follow the money indeed.

  25. Trump heads up an international organization that does business in a bunch of dodgy places, with many dodgy people. ( his partner in a Baku Azerbaijan was linked to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. – Patty and Troll know nothing about this )

    And in his US projects, he boycotts the steel made in the US in favor of cheaper steel made in China.

    MAGA!!

  26. Paul: Trump also gave money to Clinton’s campaign and went to her daughter’s wedding.

    But we are talking about policy and renegotiating trade agreements. Not individual Trump’s activities as an individual business man.

    I can buy clothes Made in China but it doesn’t mean that I don’t want to see manufacturing return to the US.

    This is just silly kindergarten argument.

  27. //Noel, to your point, what the American people are going to do about it I would say that we have started by electing President Trump! The opposition that is spilling forth just shows how deep the problem is. The American people know now that they are getting ripped off
    ….
    Trump may not have a good presidency due to the fact that the opposition is so large and well-funded.//

    Et tu, Charles?

    You honestly think that the election of Trump will get rid of corruption, political funding and nepotism? You’re trusting the cat to keep the cream.

    And if you think the string of failures that is the Trump presidency is due to the opposition, God bless you.

  28. Patty, you don’t think that there’s something fundamentally contradictory with someone and their ‘don’t do as I do do as I say’ approach? That an multinational businessman funded by international backers expects of others in business what he wasn’t prepared to do himself?

    You’re always banging on about globalisation and the establishment. Your God is the epitome incarnate of both and your nonchalant ‘kindergarten argument’ dismissal doesn’t mask the double standard.

  29. Patty

    Without making a big deal about it, your beloved and all wise Phantom has made a special effort to buy US products – clothing, bicycle, car.

    But your idol, who gives huge speeches against foreign imports, buys his steel from China, his TVs in China and two of his three wives from central Europe.

  30. And two scoops gents, don’t forget that Trump gets two scoops.

  31. Some evil fake news media people visited Trump International Hotel in DC and they observed very many foreign made products there. There were US made alternatives for glasses, soaps, shampoos, towels, sheets, probably other things as well.

    Trump wants to compel the broader society to buy American ( or to pay more for foreign made ) but when it’s his turn to buy things, he often buys ” foreign ”

    amps (China)
    Glasses (Italy)
    Phones (Malaysia)
    Remote control (China)
    TV (South Korea)
    Soaps and shampoos (Canada)
    Towels (India)
    Scale (China)
    Hair dryer (China)
    Sheets (Italy)
    Tissue container (UK)
    Umbrella (China)
    Robe (China)
    Tray (UK)
    Ice bucket (UK)
    Dishes (Germany)
    Sheets (Italy)
    Glasses (Italy)
    Chandeliers (Austria)

  32. President Trump has scrapped a planned visit to the ancient mountain fortress of Masada in Israel because he was not allowed to land his chopper at the top, according to reports.

    The president refused to land his helicopter at the base of the historic site and take a cable car up as former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush had done, Newsweek reported, citing Israel’s Channel 2.

    http://nypost.com/2017/05/18/trump-scraps-visit-to-masada-after-israel-nixes-chopper-landing/

    This guy is really the best.

  33. Don’t forget the ice cream. That’s gelato, it’s Italian, and Trump gets TWO SCOOPS!

    Hang on, did a libtard actually sneak into Trump Tower and check where the ice buckets came from? U can believe that. It’s the kind of thing a libtard would do.

  34. Do you support ” opening up libel laws ” to allow for more frivolous lawsuits?

    Do you support increased tariffs on imported products, even as applied against great friends like Canada

    Do you support managed trade?

    The Pete Moore of two years ago didn’t support any of these Trump policies.

    It’s hard to keep up with these shifting positions.

  35. And if you think the string of failures that is the Trump presidency is due to the opposition, God bless you.

    Thank you Noel I can take all the blessings I can get!

    I’ll be the first to say that I am underwhelmed by what Pres. Trump has been able to accomplish so far, he’s been a bit of disappointment. That being said special prosecutors and impeachment talk and an opposition that is not willing to work with him can make it very difficult to get anything accomplished.

  36. Does his erratic, endless self pitying behavior concern you?

    A good part of being an senior executive in any field is acting like one.

  37. The most successful and broadly liked recent presidents – Reagan and Clinton come to mind – both had plenty of political enemies.

    Can you recall either of them ever giving the type of self pitying speeches as Trump seems to do every day now?

  38. Earlier, he tweeted that the decision was “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history” […]

    “I believe it hurts our country terribly, because it shows we’re a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country,” Mr Trump told CNN and CNBC .

    His reaction differed from Wednesday when he was quoted in a White House statement as saying: “I look forward to this matter concluding quickly.

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39965107

    There’s one common factor in the crisis after crisis after crisis after crisis which has ‘ hurt’ the US in the recent past.

    We’re a ‘not – unified’ country. Jesus Christ, is it only me that that reads like elementary English to?

    The single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history?

    I know that the Donpster is prone to exaggerated superlatives but who would’ve thought he was such a fragile snowflake?

  39. Paul, Peter, Pete, Noel

    Can you recall any British or Irish politician that has ever felt as sorry for himself/herself so publicly and so often?

    I can’t think of any politician or non politician who has ever been so emotionally fragile in public, though maybe some perpetually emoting artists could fit the bill

  40. Good post Patty. You have finally mastered the art of satire, almost to a Mahonesque level 😋

  41. //Can you recall any British or Irish politician that has ever felt as sorry for himself/herself so publicly and so often?//

    Of course not. And the wonder of this little pansy is that his image is the tough he-man who knows how to do business and knows how to handle a woman.

  42. It’s not self – Pity. It’s GREAT self – pity

  43. Why do I always get the sense that David would be the English version of Trump in methods & word if he had succeeded in politics on this side of the pond? 🙂

  44. Now that can be taken as a great insult or as a great compliment!

  45. The only politician I remember that was somewhat prone to say to pity poor me was Richard Nixon.

  46. A member of the Reagan cabinet concludes that there is an assault on the Presidency:

    http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/05/18/the-assault-on-trump/

    We are witnessing an assault by the national security state and its liberal media on a President of the United States that is unprecedented.

    Wild and unsupported accusations of treasonous or illegal Russian connections have been the mainstay of the news since Trump’s campaign for president. These accusations have reached the point that there is an impeachment movement driven by the national security state and its liberal media and endorsed by Democrats, the American leftwing which has turned against the working class as “Trump deplorables,” and luminaries such as Harvard Law Professor Larry Tribe. The Washington Post, which was not present at the meeting of President Trump with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov, purports to know that Trump gave Lavrov US national security information.

    The Russian government has offered the presstitute media a transcript of the meeting, but, of course, the pressitutes are not interested.

    Trump, being in real estate and entertainment, was unaware of the landmines on which he was stepping when he said it was time to normalize relations with Russia and to rethink the purpose of NATO.

    The US military/security complex sits on a budget extracted from very hard-pressed American taxpayers of $1,000 billion dollars annually. By threatening to normalize relations with the enemy which was created in order to justify this vast budget, Trump presented as the major threat to the American National Security State’s power and profit.

    This is why Trump will be broken and/or removed as President of the United States.

    Did Trump order the latest attack in Syria? No – but somebody did.

    H/T to zerohedge:

    Steven Cohen, Professor of Russian studies at Princeton and NYU (an obvious Russian spy) was besides himself tonight, in sheer disbelief over the with hunt of gigantic nothing-burgers that are being used to assault the Presidency of Donald Trump.

    He declared, “today, I would say (the greatest threat to national security) is this assault on President Trump. Let’s be clear what he’s being accused of is treason. This has never happened in America, that we had a Russian agent in the White House. Cohen believes Flynn did nothing wrong by talking to the Russian ambassador, describing it as ‘his job’ to do so.

    He then illuminated the indelible fact that there is a 4th branch of government, the intelligence community, who have been meddling in American foreign affairs, obstructing the other 3 branches of government.

    “In 2016, President Obama worked out a deal with Russian President Putin for military cooperation in Syria. He said he was gonna share intelligence with Russia, just like Trump and the Russians were supposed to do the other day. Our department of defense said it wouldn’t share intelligence. And a few days later, they killed Syrian soldiers, violating the agreement, and that was the end of that. So, we can ask, who is making our foreign policy in Washington today?”
