The glass is half-full or half-empty, depending on one’s tendency towards optimism or pessimism.
Donald Trump campaigned as a take-no-prisoners rabble rouser, but by the time he addressed Congress on February 28th he came across as, well, presidential in the traditional sense. He maintained a populist/nationalist stance on economic issues, but also threw a lot of bones to the neo-conservatives on foreign policy, and pandered to liberals on social and racial issues. And that’s likely the general course his administration will attempt to follow – if he isn’t impeached or otherwise forced from office, the goal of the half of the country that hates him.
At the very least, Trump is bound to disappoint those who expect him to be some kind of White Nationalist superhero. The reality is that he has to deal with a system that has countless “checks and balances” in place to prevent that from happening, including his own party, which long ago was neutered and taken over by a “lighter” form of the forces that animate the Democrats.
Trump’s nature is one of a pragmatist, a wheeler-dealer who wants to make deals through give and take, rather than adhering to a rigid ideology.
So far, jobs are returning to the country, real manufacturing jobs not minimum wage ones. And some immigrants and “refugees” are being put under a microscope when it comes to vetting and their status within the U.S. Fear alone has resulted in many fewer Mexicans trying to enter through the southern border so far in 2017.
President Trump labeling the fake news media as the “enemy of the American people” is also to be highly commended. One of his media enemies, Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC, let the cat out of the bag during an anti-Trump tirade when she said, “Our job” is to “control exactly what people think.”
Trump has also courageously criticized the “intelligence community,” something no president has done since John Kennedy.
The article “A Cautionary Tale” by Roger Devlin in this issue of The Nationalist Times, which describes the failures of the Reagan administration, may well end up applying to Donald Trump – long on rhetoric but short on action. It’s too early still to pass judgment.
We’d all like to think that President Trump and his key allies are aware of the purging of White men in society other than at the very top, and will try to do something about it. For if nothing is done about the revolutionary demographic changes taking place, the Trump administration will end up being but a blip on the long-standing anti-White continuum and Hillary’s coalition – the real “deplorables” – will end up being solidified as a permanent majority in national elections.
But nationalists have to understand the dynamics of the current situation. All the pressure on Trump is coming from the left. There are no nationalist institutions on the right, and very few patriotic organizations left at all.
