I sent Rudi Giuliani a Tweet letting him know what I thought about who the radical was within the Trump administration, at least the place to start. Let me explain to that mole and all the others, and Obama and his lectures, “resistance is futile.” What’s going to happen, what is happening is going to happen. Even in their wildest fantasies if this so-called resistance were to push Donald Trump out of the White House, things would not go back to how they were before. That world that The New York Times think its readers wants does not exist. They are writing stories for ghosts who aren’t here in the world anymore. For them they have a kind of revelation coming that is a lot like the movie The Sixth Sense. At the end of the film, they are going to find out that they were dead all along, that it wasn’t the world that was having a hard time living, it was them because they were already dead. And just some friendly advice for President Trump, the answer to his question as to who on his staff is trying to lead a resistance against him, he should seek that answer in John Kelly’s office.
Looking over the Bob Woodward book, Fear, and the combination of Obama’s speech this past week attacking Trump, and the dissident within the Trump administration that supposedly wrote The New York Times “resistance” piece and what it all adds up to is sheer desperation, and a lack of understanding as to what is going on. In a lot of ways these people in what they call the “resistance” are like millennials who have been coddled all their lives by their mothers and told that they are the best little kids in the world only to come into the real world as adults and find conflict with everyone because the world certainly doesn’t see them that way. At the most basic ways of their thinking they just can’t see the forest for the trees. I managed to get my hands on Woodward’s book prior to the release and I have to say it was very disappointing. I had never read any of Woodward’s books but thought of him as a good journalist because of his work in Watergate. But that appears to be a fluke for him, because Fear is the work of a hack who is agenda driven toward some liberal version of the world that is the drug induced haze of his pot smoking generation. I was let down to find out that Bob Woodward wasn’t very good at all, even as just a writer. He is simply a marionette for the Democratic Party, which is why they think he did so well with Watergate—because it fit an agenda for them, not actually the realm of reality. If the same standards that were given to Watergate and were applied to the Trump administration, Woodward and the rest would be on the president’s side. But what they are really angry at toward Trump is something much deeper and more sinister for them.
Obama’s speech was baffling because it was like that of a kid who got caught steeling bubble gum from a local store and knowing he did it, but was attempting to con everyone that the crime had actually been conducted by an alley cat who actually stole a car leaving everyone scratching their heads. Yet Obama’s coming out party to help Democrats try to win a few seats in the midterms isn’t just an attempt to help his party, its to save himself. His fingerprints are all over this massive abuse that the government had used to spy on Trump, go after conservative journalists, and use the powers of government to keep his political party in power no matter how many laws they had to break. Obama isn’t just trying to win elections, he’s trying to stay out of jail. And I was surprised that the Woodward book had no interest in this modern Watergate story at all, but to take the eyes of the law away from Obama’s responsibilities in those crimes, but to suppress it with this odd insistence that the institution of the presidency was more important than the will of the people who elected Trump into it to change the direction of the country away from what Obama had offered.
The summation of these events are that Trump represents this new age that we are in quite well, a decentralized emphasis on personal independence where everyone who votes now has a personal computer called a phone that travels around with them everywhere. Information has been decentralized, entertainment has been decentralized and ultimately so has transportation, food acquisition, and even shopping. We are living in the age of decentralization while the liberals are obsessed with centralization. For instance, if you consider just the impact of Microsoft’s Office software, everything that it provides for its users is about decentralizing the process of intellectual content production. Cody Wilson’s Ghost Gunner milling machines have decentralized the production of firearms. It is now possible to have a portable machine shop in your house that makes guns just a bit bigger than a toaster oven, and nearly as easy.
I used to have massive arguments with people who insisted that a college education was the way of the future. I’d say that it certainly wasn’t worth six figures for a kid to be converted from a free-thinking person to a stuffy institutionalist just so that the degree could get them in the door of the human resource department of a major company. That was the world of America from 1950 to 1980. That is not the way of the world from 1990 to 2020. Employers just want someone who can pass the background test, hell with the degree. But in a liberal society, they want to teach people dependence, but the trend of our culture is decentralization even to the point where you can order your groceries from a food app and have them delivered directly to your home. College isn’t offering people anything they can’t get for themselves and that realization has put major holes in the basic premise of liberalism.
If you plot these changes in attitudes to their natural conclusions, it should become very obvious that Trump is more than just the symptom that Obama was referring to in his recent speech, he is the antithesis to all institutions and their inability to be useful to modern human beings. What Bob Woodward and The New York Times can’t stand about Trump, and this goes for everyone who works within the Washington D.C. culture is, Trump is the president who doesn’t need pollsters, advisors, or even a Chief of Staff. Trump does what he wants when he wants to do it, and that is exactly why he won his election fair and square in this new age of decentralization, where people can function without associations to massive groups. This revelation has proven too dangerous to those who have committed their entire lives to institutional thinking and are now facing their own extinction.
If Bob Woodward would put out a book like Fear, written obviously from a vantage point of a man obsessed with institutional valor and is appalled that it doesn’t match reality and is therefore angry at Trump for providing that evidence contrary to the sentiment, then it isn’t hard to conclude who the moles are in the White House that Trump put in place to appease the institutionalists as a negotiating tool to put them at ease that he wasn’t planning to be a crazy man in the White House. But Trump’s olive branch to the institutionalists was ignored and now the president has to fire all of them, and now he has to declassify information that will bring great harm to the Obama White House. And he will continue to protect his House and Senate seats ahead of the midterms and not be distracted by Woodward and his liberal friends when it counts the most. Resistance is futile because the intent of this new resistance is to steer American civilization back toward more institutionalism, which runs counter to everything that our society has become, magnificently decentralized. Trump is the creation of that decentralization, he is not the cause. And that is why resistance is futile. No matter what they do, they are going to lose even if their number is thousands to one. Trump is the first decentralized president in history but he won’t be the last, and in all the words that Woodward wrote in his new book, it is that aspect for which he missed completely, and why Obama is now terrified of what comes next—which he well should.
