A lot of people are crying in their beer over the results of the American election. Our friend, Srdja Trifkovic, wrote on November 9th in Chronicles that it was “a disaster averted”. I couldn’t agree more. And those three words sum up why so many “Shy Trump Voters” turned out to upset the Clinton applecart.
Here’s part of his essay, with the important points bulleted for emphasis:
Last night’s divine surprise is important more for the many bad things that will not happen than for the good ones that may happen. That Donald Trump won in spite of his many blunders, and in spite of the mainstream media machine acting as an integral part of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, indicates the magnitude of the elite-class debacle. Many disasters will be averted now.
- The appointment of one, two, or even three Ruth Bader Sotomayor clones will not happen.
- There will be no mass amnesty for the illegals.
- The Clinton crime syndicate will no longer be able to operate with impunity, and its principals may face justice. […]
- There will be no second-generation Clinton dynasts.
- There will be no more mass pardons of hardened criminals.
- There will be no more bowing before Saudi royal kleptocrats, and
- no White House Iftar dinners with halal menus.
- There will be no mass influx of Syrian “refugees.”
- There will be no more “progressive projects” to erode the remnants of the Republic.
- There will be no more trashing of white working Americans.
- There will be no Humas in the Oval Office, no Nulands in the Cabinet and no Foundation donors in the anteroom.
- Most importantly, there will be no meaningless wars in pursuit of hegemony for its own sake.
[What point do you consider most important in that list? I’m finding it difficult to pick a favorite, though the Supreme Court sends shivers through my very soul. America would have died. – D]
If Trump does remain staunch in his stated intent to reject the services of neocon “experts,” who are certain to start sending him their blood-soaked resumes, America will have a chance to become great again at home by acting as a satiated power abroad—like Rome under the Five Good Emperors, 19th century Britain, or the German Kaiserreich under Bismarck. That would mean that the United States would finally cease to be the major cause of instability and tension in today’s world, as it has been for the past quarter-century.
There will be no games of chicken with Russia, no U.S.-declared and enforced “no-fly zone” in Syria—to which Hillary was fully committed, in spite of the obvious risk of causing a nuclear war—and no covert help for any jihadists (aka “moderate rebels”) anywhere.
There will be no escalation with Beijing over some shoals in the South China Sea, no reckless attempts to make frozen post-Soviet conflicts hot again, and no interventions to force Bosnia’s unification and thus complete “the unfinished business in the Balkans” (Hillary Clinton at her Senate confirmation hearing, February 2009).
Trump may then proceed to dismantle the American “deep state,” and especially the shadow government’s key components in the national security behemoth and the military-industrial complex. That would be the prerequisite of his successful assault on open immigration, “free trade” and global hegemony. It could put his life in danger, but it is worth a try.

A hat tip is due to Doug Ross, aka Director Blue, for his news aggregator site, “Real-time Uncensored News”, since that’s where I found this essay. I don’t know if that’s a permanent link to his page or if it changes as the news is updated. But I do keep it open all day long because the variety of stories keeps changing. I like “Bad Blue” because it’s all news: no sports, no “entertainment”, no weird stuff; I can get those on Drudge. Here’s a list of the moment. It may be gone when you get there (I can no longer find The Chronicles essay I excerpted:
Top headline: Christmas is Removed from Sweden, Bit by Bit
Then, reading across the page:
Click to notify Congress, Pass HR 3892 #MuslimBrotherhood terror bill Banned elsewhere, we must do the same (Counterjihad)
“When Everybody’s Hitler, Nobody’s Hitler” (Mark Steyn)
“State Dept. Has up to 31,000 Pages of New Clinton Records from the FBI’s Investigation; Wants Five Years to Process Them” (Judicial Watch)
That’s a great page for American news, though as you can see from the Swedish disappearance of Christmas, we get other info, too. I think Doug Ross has established a good page here, mostly derived from his Twitter Feed. I hope people get in the habit of leaving the page open. It does appear to refresh, but I do that when I’ve been away from it for a couple of hours.
