The meteoric rise of Donald Trump is one of the most astonishing political events in living memory. He burst onto the scene last June when he announced that he was running for president with his now famous anti illegal immigration speech in which he dared to make reference to the disproportionate number of crimes committed by illegal alien mestizos, or "dreamers" as the left absurdly calls them . The mainstream media and political establishment clutched their pearls and gasped that a man running for president might publicly utter such a hate fact. From that moment on he has been derided and pilloried by the entire Democratic, Republican, financial and media establishments. Yet, despite all of forces and vast resources arrayed against him, he just continues to grow stronger and stronger.
Donald Trump has a simple message that strongly resonates with the majority of the American public who are among the most patriotic, and by implication nationalist, in the world. It is time to stop submitting to the will of the rootless globalist elites and put America First. He promises to crack down on illegal immigration, to end Washington corruption, to keep muslims out, to represent the people rather than special interests, and to renegotiate or end international trade agreements and stop the flow of well paid industrial jobs out of America. This is a hugely popular message that the American people have been waiting decades to hear, and has them flooding into Trump rallies in their tens of thousands. Trump, for his part, is working like a machine making constant media appearances and speaking at three rallies per day.
Clinton, by contrast, is pursuing one of the mot pitiful campaign strategies in history. She has no vision for the future, other than that she would like to see a borderless hemisphere from Alaska to Brazil, .a 550% increase in Syrian immigration and an amnesty for illegal immigrants. These policies are so unpopular that she scarcely dare mention them in public, so the vast majority of her campaign consists of endlessly repeating, "Donald Trump is a big meanie. He makes girls cry. Sexism, racism, misogyny wah wah!". In addition, Hillary's massive unpopularity and health problems have prompted her campaign team to keep her out of the public eye as much as possible.
Hillary has more or less sat this election out and left it to her surrogates in the liberal media, i.e. all of it, to campaign on her behalf, and campaign they have. The extent of the bias and dishonesty displayed by the American media is like nothing I have ever witnessed. The BBC will at least tell you the basic facts with a left-liberal spin, so you filter out the leftist spin they will at least give you a reasonable idea of what is going on in the world. In this election the American news media has sunk to new lows by either mis-reporting or completely failing to report the facts. They are clearly rattled, as they never did anything like this in the last election.
In the first debate Trump destroyed Hillary on trade and the economy. At the very end of the debate Hillary deployed her trademark "Trump is a big meanie" card by bringing up a former Miss Universe who, twenty years later, remains distraught about the fact that Trump had the temerity to call her fat when she got fat. Women's fragile self esteem must be protected from reality at all costs. Needless to say the news media made no mention of Trump's devastating economic arguments instead focusing all of their attention on the more pressing issue of the two decade old hurt feelings of a portly beauty queen.
Similarly, when Trump unveiled his contract with America in Gettysburg including such groundbreaking measures as a ban on former politicians becoming lobbyists, a ban on foreign entities paying lobbyists and a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on congressmen and senators. This was huge news of great importance and interest to the public, but the media failed to report on it at all. Instead, the only point they reported from this speech was a footnote in which Trump confirmed he would sue the women who falsely accused him of sexual misconduct. Absolutely incredible.
The media's misleading reporting about the sises of the crowds at the parties' rallies, inflating Hillary's and diminishing Trump's, has become a running joke. Even more disgraceful has been the massaged and perhaps even downright fraudulent polls which claimed that Hillary was up to 12 points ahead when all of the evidence on the ground pointed to an entirely different state of affairs, as detailed in the two discussions between Stefan Molyneux and Bill Mitchell here and here. However, as the election approaches the media tell us that the polls have miraculously changed and that the parties are now neck and neck in the hope that they will not be left looking utterly ridiculous come election day.
The entire mainstream media might be in the bag for Hillary, but Trump is winning the internet by a massive margin. Thanks to YouTube he can get his speeches directly to the public in their entirety without having to go through a media gatekeeper. His Alt Right troll army mercilessly ridicules the liberals and cucks and the penetrating analysis offered by the likes of Stefan Molyneux, Styxhexenhammer and Fash The Nation puts the middlebrow musings of the mainstream media to shame. I think we are witnessing the precise moment in history when the internet became more powerful than the mainstream media, when a guy with a webcam could be as persuasive as a multi billion dollar news network. No wonder the establishment are terrified.
Whether Trump wins or loses, 2016 will be remembered as the year that establishment republicanism died. By withdrawing their support for Trump, thus tacitly endorsing Clinton, they have removed all doubt that they have more in common with the Democratic establishment than they do with their own base. If Trump wins after repeated electoral failures by the cuckservatives he will prove that they are redundant. If Trump loses, and if he does lose it will be narrowly, the Republican base will never forgive the party leadership for deliberately sabotaging his bid and subjecting them to four or eight years of Hillary Clinton.
In spite of all of the naysayers who dismiss Trump as a Zionist puppet or not a full blooded nationalist, a Trump victory would be the greatest strike against globalism since the end of World War Two. However, a Trump victory is not in itself, enough to halt America's decline. He has already shifted his focus from deporting all illegal aliens to deporting criminal illegal aliens. Even if the wall is built and non white immigration is all but stopped it will not be enough to halt America' demographic death spiral. Already, the majority of babies born in the US are non white. Trump has no plans to reverse this. As the TV pundits gleefully point out, if the hispanics don't decide this election, they will decide the next one.
