Clouding the obvious with the Devious - Who Are the Real Enemies of Freedom

Reader comment on item: A White House Initiative to Defeat Radical Islam

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Feb 22, 2017 at 13:49

Trump's appearance on the political scene is perfectly timed; it not necessarily timed for a re-emergence of a conservative rebound from decades of democratically-schemed departures from a true Constitutionally governed rule of the people (for in many respects, this is counterintuitive); but there is the sense that Trump's non-politically aligned intuition allowed for him to intercede on behalf of the American citizen who had counted on the rule of law to intercede on their behalf, and had been duped for decades of politically corrupted squandering of truly Constitutional values.

But let us not be so immersed in the true Citizen's elation over how well the Electoral College worked on behalf of the redeemed electorate; that a more subversive act against the true citizen started, again, so many decades ago; and a more devious plot against a Constitutional America simmers in the cauldron of secularists' dreams of subverting America still. Trump will be the distraction, but not the cause.

Trump's presidency has bought time; posing the question: time for what?

Dare we ask: does this pause in the devious schemes to continue the diminishing of America on the world scene give cause to wonder if the decades of attacks on the American way of life are over: or should we continue to suspect the usual suspects who are adamantly demanding the rules of law be either suspended or done away with altogether so that the freedoms guaranteed to law-abiding citizens are eliminated on the path to global world ambitions. Is that what any president is supposed to support?

Apparently, Trump does not support that; at least not to any bona fide report this citizen has seen for the 45th White House occupant; however the 44th demonstrated quite the opposite when opening his transformation of America speeches, and further subliminally declaring his antipathies to the true interpretation of the Constitution in favor of Muslim/Islamic tendencies, like that in convening the Arab uprising in 2009.

Make no mistake: Trump and true conservatism is not going to make any real new friends that easily; but at least we now know who are the real enemies of the people of a truly law-abiding America.
