Enjoy the Ride: Trump is fully in control

Of course, President Trump should fire Rod Rosenstein, and to those who are wondering what all the waiting is all about, let me remind everyone that before moving into the Executive Office, Trump was a top television star who understands publicity and entertainment ratings. When Trump built The Apprentice into a reality television powerhouse as a top show on NBC notice that the firings never came at the beginning of the show, it was always at the close to highlight the drama. While justice purists may find such a concept repulsive—as right is right and wrong is wrong, you have to understand that when building consensus toward an idea, that you need a majority of the people to get behind an idea. The political left certainly understands how such things work, and its nice to see that now conservatives have a president who understands it too. President Trump understands how to build up to a climax and that is why he has been so successful. The firings will come, but not until the end of the show.

If Trump had fired Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller months ago, much of the dialogue that we are having now would not be happening. It is unlikely that Google and Facebook would have moved to ban Alex Jones from their platforms, it is unlikely that Judicial Watch would have filed as many court proceedings as they have which has brought about so much great evidence. And it’s highly unlikely that we would have learned so much about the Strzok/Page text messages at the top of the F.B.I. It is because Trump has let all these stories simmer that it has driven coverage to the extent that it has. What the President is doing is really quite a masterful marketing job, and the hammer is getting ready to come down—but not before the midterm elections.

One thing about people is that if they don’t feel the urgency of something, they tend to drift toward complacency. If people know that everything is taken care of, they tend not to act. But when they are stirred up into an outrage, they will pull together and move mountains. Just as in a top television show, if the climax is revealed too early, then people tend to turn off the show. Any good promoter understands that the way to keep people interested is to allow them to follow a plot always with an eye toward a resolution that is just out of reach. While its true that many of these villains that have been discovered in our federal government—people like Rosenstein—could easily be fired by President Trump, it is important at this stage to build up so much outrage that history will never forget the drama so to correct such a situation in the future. If the problem gets resolved too early in the show, things will simply go back to normal and people will forget about everything and future Rod Rosensteins will emerge in plain sight and we will not notice them until it’s too late.

I know people are worried about President Trump getting assassinated because they see how dangerous things always have been, and the coup that was underway before Trump even took office is quite a scary thing to see. But we are talking about the kind of manipulation at the federal level that has been going on for a very long time. In our culture we only lightly touch on it in mainstream films like Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T. where an ominous government is always secretly doing things that the rest of us aren’t supposed to know about. Only under our Constitution, we are supposed to know. We aren’t supposed to just let a big brother government take over our homes for some super-secret project. They are supposed to serve us, we don’t serve them and this is the fight of our day. Subconsciously voters grew tired of that threatening government which grew under the last four presidents. Whether it was the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center or the latest wars in Afghanistan and Syria that gave Deep State operatives more and more power with the publics need for ever more security—our government grew away from the people it was supposed to serve and the people at the top grew arrogant, and power-hungry.

I don’t think it’s an unusual conspiracy to say that our government has actively sold itself as a solution every time a tragedy occurred, whether it was the assassination of JFK or North Korea threatening nuclear war. How much of a role the federal government played in such actions is what generates all the thoughts of conspiracy theories, and for those there are as many musings as there are raindrops in a storm. But what everyone can agree on is that national tragedy solidified the power of the federal government and its power-hungry employees. For instance, in the main meeting room at the Skull and Bones Society at Yale where so many presidents and high government officials cut their teeth as future policy makers, there is the word WAR posted for all to see. The reason is that conflict unifies people around a cause, so when conflicts are generated the minds of people can be directed toward the desired policy of the leadership. So for the Skull and Bones types it’s not a crazy conspiracy as much as its an act of psychology. Those who desire to be part of the ruling class use conflict to unify a democratic body of voters—and that’s how a ruling elite get in power and stay in power.

Some of us, most of us grew tired of this system so we voted for Donald Trump who had a reputation for being his own man and wanting like the rest of us to take America away from those Yale type policy makers. We don’t want a ruling elite to always give us constant turmoil. We want problems solved and we want to live our lives. We want a good economy. We don’t need F.B.I. agents helping insurgents shoot up an office complex then hiding the fact that they were Islamic extremists such as what we saw at a Christmas party in San Bernardino, California. I use that example because it was so obvious what happened, the F.B.I. closed the crime scene and let the media in only a few days after the killing spree to contaminate the apartment of the terrorists so that no clean evidence could ever be generated for court proceedings. It is those kinds of things that we wanted to be free of and why we voted for Trump.

President Trump understands that he has all the cards in this game, but to keep people’s minds focused, and tuned in until the end of the show, he has to let the drama build a bit. If he doesn’t we’ll have the same problems again in just a few years all over. Look, even with all the crazy stuff that’s going on the Dow Jones is floating up toward 27,000 and is closing higher than its ever been before. All the money markets are up as a matter of fact. The trade war with China is choking off the communists. GDP is up over 4% and rising. Everything is moving along nicely. Trump needs more Republicans in the House and Senate, so he needs people to stay engaged and these Rosenstein failures are reminders as to why people should stay politically active. Trump said some very interesting things the other night in a Missouri rally, he said he expected the endorsements of his 2020 presidential campaign from The New York Times, from ABC, from all the major networks because he knew that they understood how important talking about him on their shows was for their ratings. A world without Trump means people turn off their televisions and move on to something else because at this point in history, he’s all they have. Politics will never be the same again now that the networks have had Trump to cover. No CEO of a major broadcast company wants to show shareholders that the moment Trump wasn’t in office that quarterly profits dropped to record lows. Trump knows what he is doing, and Rod Rosenstein will get his “you’re fired” moment. But not until the end of this particular episode in the great political drama of our time. So don’t worry everyone, and keep watching. Keep voting. And enjoy the ride. I think you will enjoy the ending—and the beginning of the next great episode of our present circumstances.
