We’re now on day 18 of the government shutdown, and tonight President Trump had the opportunity to turn everything around and once again possibly rebuild at least some of the coalition that put him in the White House to begin with.
And he fumbled the ball – sort of.
There was no call for a state of emergency (which would have allowed for wall construction without Congressional approval), and there was no call for something resembling martial law along the southern border.
Instead, although his speech wasn’t terrible or horribly weak all things considered, we witnessed reason number 4,648 why governing as a Conservative fails abysmally under current conditions.
A revolutionary spirit is needed to break the deadlock (come what may), and a revolutionary mindset is, and will be, essential for anything resembling victory to emerge.
Much of the Left understands this, and most of the leadership (especially Jews like Senator Schumer) realizes that a holding pattern works in their favor when combined with sweet-sounding platitudes and calls for “unity” despite the rather demonic look that is sometimes hard to suppress.
The invasion continues with each passing day, and with each moment, the demographics skew more and more towards a dark (literally and figuratively) future.
Perhaps, however, we’ll see something come about if the shutdown continues, and programs like EBT and WIC start to fall apart due to lack of funding (as they are scheduled to within the next 30-60 days).
History does tend to work in these random and odd ways, and while I personally do not expect society to reach the point where it collapses, there is the potential for a misjudgment here.
