The Long War Of The Trump Presidency Has Only Just Begun

Tyler Durden's picture

After a week managing the transition, vice president-elect Mike Pence took his family out to the Broadway musical “Hamilton.”

As Pence entered the theater, a wave of boos swept over the audience. And at the play’s end, the Aaron Burr character, speaking for the cast and the producers, read a statement directed at Pence:

“(W)e are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values.”

In March, the casting call that went out for actors for roles in this musical celebration of “American values” read:

“Seeking NON-WHITE men and women.”

The arrogance, the assumed posture of moral superiority, the conceit of our cultural elite, on exhibit on that stage Friday night, is what Americans regurgitated when they voted for Donald Trump.

Yet the conduct of the “Hamilton” cast puts us on notice. The left neither accepts its defeat nor the legitimacy of Trump’s triumph.

His presidency promises to be embattled from Day One.

Already, two anti-Trump demonstrations are being ginned up in D.C., the first on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, by ANSWER, Act Now to Stop War and End Racism. A second, scheduled for Jan. 21, is a pro-Hillary “Million Woman March.”

While the pope this weekend deplored a “virus of polarization,” even inside the church, on issues of nationality, race and religious beliefs, that, unfortunately, is America’s reality. In a new Gallup poll, 77 percent of Americans perceived their country as “Greatly Divided on the Most Important Values,” with 7 in 8 Democrats concurring.

On the campuses, anti-Trump protests have not ceased and the “crying rooms” remain open. Since Nov. 8, mobs have blocked streets and highways across America in a way that, had the Tea Party people done it, would have brought calls for the 82nd Airborne.

In liberal Portland, rioters trashed downtown and battled cops.

Mayors Rahm Emanuel of Chicago and Bill de Blasio of New York have declared their cities to be “sanctuary cities,” pledging noncooperation with U.S. authorities seeking to deport those who broke into our country and remain here illegally.

Says D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, “I have asserted firmly that we are a sanctuary city.” According to The Washington Post, after the meeting where this declaration had been extracted from Bowser, an activist blurted, “We’re facing a fascist maniac.”

Such declarations of defiance of law have a venerable history in America. In 1956, 19 Democratic Senators from the 11 states of the Old Confederacy, in a “Southern Manifesto,” rejected the Supreme Court’s Brown decision ordering desegregation of the public schools.

Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus, Mississippi Gov. Ross Barnett and Alabama Gov. George Wallace all resisted court orders to integrate. U.S. marshals and troops, ordered in by Ike and JFK, insured the court orders were carried out.

To see Rahm and de Blasio in effect invoking John C. Calhoun’s doctrine of interposition and nullification is a beautiful thing to behold.

Among the reasons the hysteria over the Trump election has not abated is that the media continue to stoke it, to seek out and quote the reactions they produce, and then to demand the president-elect give assurances to pacify what the Post says are “the millions of … blacks and Latinos, gays and Lesbians, Muslims and Jews — fearful of what might become of their country.”

Sunday, The New York Times ran a long op-ed by Daniel Duane who said of his fellow Californians, “(N)early everyone I know would vote yes tomorrow if we could secede” from the United States.

The major op-ed in Monday’s Post, by editorial editor Fred Hiatt, was titled, “The Fight to Defend Democracy,” implying American democracy is imperiled by a Trump presidency.

The Post’s lead editorial, “An un-American Registry,” compares a suggestion of Trump aides to build a registry of Muslim immigrants to “Nazi Germany’s … singling out Jews” and FDR’s wartime internment of 110,000 Japanese, most of them U.S. citizens.

The Post did not mention that the Japanese internment was a project of the beatified FDR, pushed by that California fascist, Gov. Earl Warren, and upheld in the Supreme Court’s Korematsu decision, written by Roosevelt appointee and loyal Klansman, Justice Hugo Black.

A time for truth. Despite the post-election, bring-us-together talk of unity, this country is hopelessly divided on cultural, moral and political issues, and increasingly along racial and ethnic lines.

Many Trump voters believe Hillary Clinton belongs in a minimum-security facility, while Hillary Clinton told her LGBT supporters half of Trump’s voters were racists, sexists, homophobes, xenophobes and bigots.

Donald Trump’s presidency will be a besieged presidency, and he would do well to enlist, politically speaking, a war cabinet and White House staff that relishes a fight and does not run.

The battle of 2016 is over.

The long war of the Trump presidency has only just begun.

Half the country hates him -- the other half will follow if he let's the Clintons off the hook.

The protests are over, they are worn out and right on schedule...2 wks.

Oh and one more for the prog press to dwell on before I retire to dream of peaceful demonstrators smashing glass & lighting dumpster fires (lol) are correct MSM, there is absolutely no proof whatsoever that the patriarch of your Camelot, your cliquish klan (Joe Kennedy)...had his own daughter lobotomized.


Nighty night ;-)

Tylers, you ought to watch this one:


Two things about this:  Charles Kaiser is a fucking liar and hypocrite and, more importantly, it shows that the MSM is going to double down on smearing Trump's supporters by trying to paint with a very broad brush that all of them are literal Nazis.

It's not too farfetched to believe that billionaire Trump and his money buddies might have stolen the election.

Then there's the Democratic hero Woodrow Wilson. He spewed racist rants his whole career, and made a point of FIRING all of the blacks that worked at the post office and other Federal agencies.

The progressives will keep battling until they are defunded. Break up the trusts, tax the billionaires, stop block grants, stop funding the "arts", stop funding junk science, stop foreign funding of radical Islamics, stop funding all the think tanks and NGOs, and then watch the "movement" die for lack of interest.

Damned straight. Bankrupt them and send them to Mehico with their gardeners.

cnn, npr, WaPo, HuffPo and NYT don't realize the election is over and hard working Americans have spoken. If they continue to seek to destroy America and interfere with other people's lives who are trying to get to work then all those federal funds they get should be cut immediately. Why should tapxpayers fund terrorists?

Bad News: They already cast their vote, and it wasn't enough.

Good News: You can cast your vote each day, every day. At least once, whenever you buy from Whites or Non-whites.

Make it count where it matters the most: the pocket book. Let's see who lasts the longest in the war of Financial Attrition.

Timing is important too. Why spend any more than you absolutely have to in the end days of the Obamanation?

Save all your purchases, especially the big ones, for after the first of February, which will be credited to Trump's administration.

Yes, the WWF soap opera has just begun, good guys vs bad guys while Trump and Schumer cut deals left and right. Peeps in for a rude awakening, red flags all over the place with this president 'elect'.

Trump is a fighter.  He doesn't like to be in the wrong.  I think he will stand up to the onslaught.  If he follows through on his campaign promises, he will be a hero and may even coax some over to his side.  If he waffles and gives in to the leftist agenda, we're sunk.


Grumpy Marxists ain't never going to accept a knuckledragger Psychopath misogynist racist narcissist so-called 'billionaire' piece-of-shit Confidence man attempting to stir up drama in his elderly Child Molester years as POTUS of the largest, and most psychologically disturbed country in the Western World, motherfucker Buchanan. We no longer accept your elitist shill asskissing rhetoric anymore, and you can go fuck yourself in the ear, Buchanan old boy.


God damned right wing old fart SOB motherfucker, piss off.

I was with you until you called Buchanan "old."  Twice.  That was kind of uncalled-for, I thought.  Age-ist.

Iconoclast421's picture

The "old boy" is a colloquialism, and it does not mean the same thing as "old man". Same goes for "old fart". Old farts and old boys can both be younger than old men.

I agree, lock the bitch up.


You were talking about her, right?

Where did you learn such exquisite command of the English language?


I learned one syllable at a time whilst growing up in a household of one Poet/Producer & a Chartered Accountant for parents, and four siblings that all read books. Mere survival necessitated a reasonable command of the English language or two adults and three siblings would be set into attack mode on grammar, punctuation, and pronunciation of sentences spoken during the family discourse hour otherwise known as dinner. That diner table is mine now and it was custom made for my grandfather who was a Publisher in Toronto in the height of the publishing business back in 1920.

Suffice to say that literary works & art, as well as newspapers piled everywhere were always at hand to read in the crazy house I was raised in. Part of what I learned was obviously by osmosis, eh.

while those of us deplorables are sitting in our basements, drinking beer, playing cards, farting, and telling tales of female conquests, with other deplorables, this is a typical evening in MOU basement.

recorded by MOU himself i might add.

if you want to find out where MOU niggers are today, just refer to the concurrent ZH posting regarding increased food stamp distribution by state.

"Many Trump voters believe Hillary Clinton belongs in a minimum-security facility,"

No, many Trump voters believe that Hillary Clinton committed High Treason against their nation and should face a traditional firing squad.

I want to see the Hildabeast locked up in a supermax prison with the best medical care money can buy. I want her to suffer with the agony of her defeat for as many years as possible.

Forward (over the cliff)!

Jack, I will bet you a bottle of your (be reasonable) favorite spirit, tRump never builds any wall. My wife predicted this a year ago.

Squirrel, if he ain't going after Hillary and he ain't trashing Obamacare, he ain't building no wall.

What we had on stage last Friday night when the hamilton cast accosted Vice President Pence was the cultural eelshit.

Trump ain't President....yet. Things will, once he has the joystick.

The country is too divided to continue. 

The snowflakes need their own nation where they can all vote themselves everything they ever wanted,  but not find anyone willing to build it.

Syria sound good to everyone? Or Mexico?

I wish I understood why people are so outraged over this.  The comments from the Hamilton actor were gracious.  He told the people in the audience to stop booing Pence and said that he was speaking from a place of love.  Broadway actors, many of whom are gay, telling Pence politely that they were afraid that he, a proud anti-gay activist, would not protect them, and asking him to be kind to them in the future, was pretty honest and decent. They didn't insult the man, they simply pointed out that he had power over them, and asked that he be more magnanimous with his power in the future.  If America can't stand that level of speech to a politician, then this country has no future and doesn't deserve one.

Horseshit. Guy's out for a show with his family. Leave him alone. Bullying.

Expat's picture

Because the Vice President of the US is a private figure who should not have to be subjected to calm, rational expression of the people's views?

Pence signed away his own and his family's privacy and his right to a safe place.  Or is poor Pence a snow flake?

Ouch, it hurts when it cuts both ways!

  You douchebag blog writers and hack journanlists had better lose the " ELITE" moniker really fast.

   Just because an individual has more $~fake fiatskies, and steals from others, doesn't make them smart, intelligent OR elite.

   Fucking journalists are ass sucking clowns!

 Pull the silver spoon out of your asses<

Ned Zeppelin's picture

Mr. Buchanan has it right. As usual.

Expat's picture

I agree.  Trump is already under attack by the extremists bent on stopping him from being an effective, rational, unifying president.  Of course, those attacks are now coming from such liberal, socialist forces as Coulter and Breitbart.

Just wait until Trump takes office.  No Wall, Obamacare stays, 50,000 troops in Syria, no mass deportations, no LGTP genocide, and so on.

Change we can believe in!  Yep, as much change as under Obama.

Trump ran circles around the media during the campaign, didn't get the endorsement of one single press organization, not even the WSJ, and he won anyway.  The MSM didn't broadcast any of Jimmy O'Keefe's exposes on DNC corruption not because it wasn't news worthy, but because it came from citizen journalism on a competitive platform - the internet. 

Trump knows the rules of the game has changed - the MSM is still trying to figure that out.  With both houses of congress and the people behind him only the 4th estate think they can stop him.  We'll see.  Game on.

you had better get a clue.

With the people behind him, only both houses of congress and the 4th estate think they can stop him.

Yes. Nothing is worth preserving if you do not fight for it. You have gained it through the rules of the game. If the losers want it they will get it. Equilibrium is a fake meme.

Trump is making a fatal mistake that will cost him the presidency: refusing to prosecute Hillary Clinton; Giving Medal of Freeedom

Awards to his enemies and Clinton Supporters; and  trying to play nice wiith liberals. 

War has been declared on Trump President-elect or not.  The bozo President Obama has insiststed he will continue to oppose Trump's policies eventhough Obama's policies were  totally rejected by the public.

Trump must treat his enemies the same way he and his supporters are being treated. This is a new age - love thy enemy is over.

You say "The long war of the Trump presidency has only just begun".  Yes but it's designed in preparation for a massive takeover event to be coordinated with a lockdown on bank runs and cash.

The deflationary spiral is squeezing cash and liquidity because of the global unwind of peak debt that's coming to a head.  The globalists are racking their brains trying to combine one large event that keeps them in power, overcoming Trump and introduces a new currency and global government.

It's probably going to be a 9-11-like attack from some foreign enemy like ISIS or even UFOs using lasers in the sky.  The critical element is to strike fear in the masses to get them to clamor for government protection.

The hard part is to get them to nullify Trump's victory or even blame Trump for the attack. nullify all paper and digital dollar debt in deposits and cash and accept complete control with a new paper money like the SDR. 

It's not going to be easy but the globalist are desperate and need to pull this off while their agent Obama is still in charge and can coordinate this last big attack and final power grab.
