Is Donald Trump Being Adopted by the Establishment?


Donald Trump ran a campaign founded on the idea of “draining the swamp” and implementing radical change, change which, at least on the foreign policy level, was practically non-interventionist. He ran promising to get rid of the fascist Affordable Healthcare Act, and even had an infrastructure revitalization plan focused on the privatization of highways and bridges incentivized by massive tax credits! Trump criticized warmongering NATO, said that ISIS can be defeated by getting out-of-the-way of Russia, and has wanted foreign nations to actually provide for their own security. Now, it seems that these promises and platforms are all going down the drain as Donald Trump is being integrated into the Deep State’s plans.

Trump has stated that he wants to “drain the swamp”, implying that the warmongerers who seek out American’s death and wealth will be forced from the Federal Government. However, instead of having a group of peace-oriented advisors, Donald Trump has basically invited the entire neocon Establishment onto his team. This list of names has been released [SOURCE: US MAGAZINE], detailing the members of his new “transition team”:

Donald Trump announced his Presidential Transition Team Executive Committee on Friday, November 11, and the list includes his children Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump. (A transition team is put in place with every new incoming president to ensure that the transfer of power happens smoothly.)

Other bold-faced names who will join him as part of the executive committee include Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, RNC chairman Reince Priebus and venture capitalist Peter Thiel, who earlier this year revealed that he had funded a lawsuit against blog network Gawker Media.

Rebekah Mercer, a Republican donor; Stephen K. Bannon, Trump’s campaign chairman and conservative news organization Breitbart News’ executive chairman; Tennessee Representative Marsha Blackburn; Pennsylvania Congressman Lou Barletta; New York Congressman Chris Collins; Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi; Pennsylvania Congressman Tom Marino; banker and producer Steven Mnuchin; California Congressman Devin Nunes and entrepreneur Anthony Scaramucci round out the team.

The New York Times also announced Friday that vice president–elect Mike Pence will helm the team, taking over for Governor Chris Christie, who previously led the transition effort. Christie will instead serve as vice chair to the transition, alongside avid Trump supporter and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson, Newt Gingrich, retired lieutenant general Michael T. Flynn and Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions.

As you can see, the only possibly good picks from this bad bunch is Peter Thiel, the libertarian businessman, and Stephen K. Bannon, chairman of Breitbart. Others, like Rudy Giuliani (yes, the same man who was smacked down by Ron Paul in the Republican debates on the subject of blowback), the bloodthirsty Michael T. Flynn, and the warmonger Jeff Sessions are absolutely the worst band of money-grubbing murderers available for hire. How is hiring men like Newt Gingrich and Tom Marino draining anything? Answer: it’s not. It’s inviting those same guys Trump campaigned against to come and join him. And looking at his cabinet picks, things don’t get any better: Trump is considering a prominent banker as his Secretary of Treasury. Here’s the full list [SOURCE: BUZZFEED]:

Obama has now met with Trump, in order to ensure a “smooth transition of power“. We have no idea what was said during this 90-minute meeting (which was supposed to only last about 15), but we do know that afterwards Obama said that “Most of all, I want to emphasize to you, Mr. President-elect, that we now are going to do everything we can to help you succeed because if you succeed then the country succeeds.” This sound eerily like the Deep State wanting to help him “see the light”. And, even more significantly, Donald Trump after his conversation said that Obama was a “very good man, very good man” and that he “explained some of the difficulties, some of the wonderful things that have been achieved.” This coming after tweeting that Obama will go down in history as the worst president in history!

Not only that, but Donald Trump, after repeatedly saying that he will dismantle and abolish the Affordable Care Act, is now changing his position to one of merely “fixing” it and maintaining the individual mandate (the one that forces people to buy healthcare or else) and the preexisting conditions rules of Obamacare. Trump also said that he will try to make the FedGov’s healthcare more like the socialist MediCare (as opposed to the fascist ObamaCare). This is a blantant example of the treachery that Donald Trump will exhibit once he becomes president.

Finally, in a recent interview on 60 Minutes, Trump has called Hillary Clinton “very strong and very smart,” “a great competitor” and that she “couldn’t have been nicer” when she gave him a call. After gushing over Clinton like this, Trump was asked weither he would consider the Clintons as advisors, to which he replied, “I mean, this is a very talented family,” then, “Certainly, I would certainly think about that.” WHAT???!!! When I first read this, I thought that there must have been some sort of mistake. After realizing that this was real, I knew that all the populism coming from Trump had gone right down the drain. Instead of “LOCK HER UP!” we get “I’ll definitely consider taking her advice.” Here’s the video:

In conclusion, it seems to me that the only question remaining is whether or not Donald Trump is a Deep State trojan horse, pretending to be an outsider, only to get elected and turn on the American people, or if he has gotten elected and is now being manipulated to do the elites’ bidding. Or perhaps this is just a situation of Trump trying to build up alliances within the system so that he can accomplish at least some of his goals — as unlikely as that may be, it is possible. Any way you slice it, Trump is not going to fix the country’s problems, nearly all of which come from political power. This statist system is not going to last, and when it all collapses, we voluntaryists (what Leonard Read called the Remnant) need to be there to show people that there is another, better way, a better way that we can and should be working towards today.
