“There are two kinds of Trump supporters: there’s the straight-ticket Republicans who’d support an animatronic Chuck E Cheese robot as long as it had an (R) next to its name, and then there’s the so-called ‘populists’ who say everything Trump does is secretly a brilliant strategic maneuver against the Deep State.

There are two kinds of Trump supporters: there’s the straight-ticket Republicans who’d support an animatronic Chuck E Cheese robot as long as it had an (R) next to its name, and then there’s the so-called “populists” who say everything Trump does is secretly a brilliant strategic maneuver against the Deep State.

There’s some overlap between these two categories (neocon swamp monster Sean Hannity now posing as a swamp-fighting enemy of the Deep State is the most hilarious example), but there’s a distinction that’s worth noting. After the Soleimani assassination the straight-ticket Republicans were online acting like the Bush voters they are yelling “Yeeehaw, we kill whoever we want!”, whereas the “populists” were claiming that this was yet another strategic 4-D chess maneuver against the enemies of peace. I had one former reader sincerely attempt to argue with me that Soleimani was actually working for the Deep State, and had been protected by Obama and Hillary Clinton.

This latter category of Trump supporter is the type I generally encounter in doing what I do. Openly partisan Republicans who are honest about their partisanship tend to take little interest in writers like myself, whereas Trump supporters who see themselves as anti-establishment, anti-war and anti-propaganda often make their way into my orbit. These are also the type that my readers will generally run into for the same reason, so they’re the category of Trump supporter I’m writing about here.

When the news first broke of Soleimani’s assassination I wrote the following:

“A proportionate retaliatory strike would necessarily entail an attack on US military targets, or the military targets of US allies. If that happens, either the empire stands down or we’re looking at an all-out war of a size that is potentially almost limitless.”

And indeed that is exactly what happened. Iran did retaliate, against US military targets, injured more than 100 US soldiers, and then the US empire stood down. Trump’s reckless act of brinkmanship resulted in a dead Iranian general, a badly damaged airbase, scores of injured soldiers, a tail-between-the-legs retreat, and brought the US and Iran “closer than you thought” to war, for no real strategic benefit. Yet for days after the military exchange I was getting Trump supporters in my social media mentions telling me I’d been crazy and hysterical for warning of the risk of war.

These bizarre mental gymnastics are possible because these Trump supporters aren’t interfacing with reality in any way. They’re engaged in a weird Live Action Role-Playing (LARP) game where they pretend to be knowledgeable patriots cheering for a Ron Paul-like champion of peace and anti-authoritarianism, while in real life they’re acting exactly like garden variety Republicans cheering for a standard Republican president who’s been advancing longstanding agendas of neoconservatives and the CIA.

In real life Trump has imprisoned Julian Assange, has re-started the Cold War, has killed tens of thousands of Venezuelans with starvation sanctions, has vetoed attempts to save Yemen from US-backed genocide, is working to foment civil war in Iran using starvation sanctions and CIA ops with the stated goal of effecting regime change, has occupied Syrian oil fields with the goal of preventing Syria’s reconstruction, has greatly increased the number of troops in the Middle East and elsewhere, has greatly increased the number of bombs dropped per day from the previous administration, killing record numbers of civilians, and reduced military accountability for those airstrikes.

Every single one of these longstanding deep state agendas that Trump has advanced have been defended by Trump supporters in my social media mentions as brilliant strategic maneuvers against the deep state. Literally every single one of them, without a single, solitary exception. Every time Trump advances an evil establishment agenda and I speak out about it, I am guaranteed to receive comments explaining why the thing I’m speaking out against is actually an ingenious move by Trump against the establishment. Trump arresting Assange is actually Trump helping Assange. Trump helping the neocons is actually Trump hurting the neocons. Those sure are some elegant invisible clothes the emperor is wearing today.

Trump’s words say one thing, and his actions say something very different. He gives lip service to anti-interventionism and opposition to the swamp, and his supporters play along with the narratives he’s spoon feeding them. He’s another George W. Bush, concealed by a thin overlay of narrative and imagination. But in the LARP he’s Ron Paul.

I started this job a few months before Trump took office, and ever since January 2017 I’ve been pointing out evil things this president has been doing and having Trump supporters tell me “Wait and see.”

“Calm down,” they tell me (they always want me to calm down). “Trump is doing something big here. You’ll see.”

They’ve been saying “you’ll see” for years now. Trump’s term is almost over. It’s time to admit you were wrong, guys.

You’ve been had. You were duped by narrative and empty words into supporting a garden variety Republican president who’s been advancing garden variety Republican agendas. Your anti-establishment sentiments were successfully corralled by propaganda into a standard GOP ideology with some populist-looking window dressing. You’ve been sitting very pretty lately while the Democrats make complete asses of themselves with ill-advised impeachment agendas and a scandalous primary race, but in reality you’re just as blinkered and duped as they are.

Believing that a US president is going to save you is just as dumb as believing the FBI and CIA are going to save you. Republicans have been doing the former while Democrats have been doing the latter. Both have been duped by custom-made establishment propaganda into cheering for different aspects of the establishment, and the only one who wins is that very same establishment.

Stop getting duped into believing in America’s two-handed sock puppet show. It’s always fake, and it always ends the same: all your money goes to the performers, and you get screwed. Start seeing through the illusion.

THE DAILY BEAST: “Lawsuit: Trump Is The Illuminati King”

“The Trump family has planned for the New World Order and this overthrow of government for many years,” one lawsuit filed Sept. 19 in a California district court charges. “They have worked in tandem and in ‘lock step’ with the New World Order, the Axis of Evil, and the Roosevelt dictatorship that is described in the ‘main action,’” the statement, listed under the ‘facts’ of the suit, continues. “The planning for the ‘Donald Trump role’ in the New World Order, World War III, and the 2016 Presidential election has spanned multiple generations and decades of the Trump family.”

 

Donald Trump is a communist, a member of the New World Order, and may have been tangentially involved in a plot to use wireless brainwave technology to coerce a Disney World alligator into killing a toddler — if the lawsuits against him are to be believed, that is.

Political elites have long been the subject of fringe conspiracy theories. To believe some fascinating YouTube videos, Hillary Clinton is an Illuminati overlord and literal witch who practices a powerful brand of satanic shamanism. But once the purview of subterranean internet forums, these theories are now leaking out into the legal world.

“The Trump family has planned for the New World Order and this overthrow of government for many years,” one lawsuit filed Sept. 19 in a California district court charges.

“They have worked in tandem and in ‘lock step’ with the New World Order, the Axis of Evil, and the Roosevelt dictatorship that is described in the ‘main action,’” the statement, listed under the “facts” of the suit, continues. “The planning for the ‘Donald Trump role’ in the New World Order, World War III, and the 2016 Presidential election has spanned multiple generations and decades of the Trump family.”

The lawsuit is one of two filed by Janis and Gregory Kaighn, the latter of whom is an attorney. (In the other, primary lawsuit, they set out to expose the “shadow government” which has actually run the United States since Theodore Roosevelt allegedly instilled a dictatorship in cooperation with the New World Order in 1933. Trump, they allege in the first lawsuit, is the final player in a long game to overthrow the government and install a permanent dictator.)

In an impressive series of legal leaps, the plaintiffs argue that Donald Trump is ineligible to run for president because he is plainly a member of the New World Order and “Communism is a fiction created by the Illuminati.” According to the transitive property and a clause in the 1954 Communist Control Act, Donald Trump is a communist, which would make his campaign an attempt to overthrow the U.S. government, they argue.

The Kaighns, who told The Daily Beast that they had proved the 9/11 attacks were an inside job, disputed this author’s argument that the New World Order might not necessarily be a real entity. In a phone interview, they said the Communist Control Act of 1954 is actually a code that detailed how an Illuminati-backed ruler might take power in the U.S.

“Somebody finally cracked the code,” Gregory Kaighn told The Daily Beast. “To understand the Communist Control Act at all, you have to understand that ‘communist’ means ‘Illuminati.’ Communism was invented by the terrorists to take over Russia.”

Asked for evidence that Trump is a member of the Illuminati, Kaighn said the evidence is already obvious.

“What do you consider evidence?” Kaighn asked. “I’m a 31-year lawyer, no offense. I know a heck of a lot more about what evidence really is than most of these people who make comments like that ever could.”

He added that Trump’s connections with mafia members painted a broader picture that would be enough to legally characterize him as a communist under the Communist Control Act.

“Donald Trump is a member of the ‘Illuminati.’ He is the ‘stealth’ Presidential candidate that is surreptitiously intending to steal our democracy and impose a permanent one ruler dictatorship on the United States of America,” the suit charges, asking judges to affirm that “Donald John Trump is a member of the Communist Party and is legally ineligible to be President of the United States.”

The Communist Party USA, an actual legal entity, said it is unaware of any such efforts.

“Donald Trump is definitely not a member of the Communist Party. We reject him,” Communist Party organizer Estevan Nembhard told The Daily Beast. “We’re part of the movement to reject his kind of hate.”

The Trump campaign did not respond to questions regarding the lawsuit, or on Donald Trump’s affiliation with the Illuminati or Communist Party.

Suing the Illuminati is rarely successful, despite some plaintiffs’ valiant efforts. When medical inmate Joaquin Foy filed Foy v. The Super-Rich Members of the Illuminati last year, a court of appeals dismissed the suit, as Foy had filed in a district outside the area of his confinement. But the Kaighns’ still-open case is hardly the first of its kind in recent months.

In May, a novella-length complaint against “The Bilderberg Group, CIA, NSA, FBI, KBR, Turner, Skull and Crossbones, Et Cetera” also named Trump International as a defendant. The suit recounts years of reported abuses at the hands of a shadowy cabal of world powers, which allegedly forced the plaintiff’s girlfriend to break up with him, used birds to spy on him, and “tried to brainwash me into a gay fascist dictator.”

Donald Trump had his own hand in the international campaign to annoy the plaintiff, the lawsuit charges. The plaintiff said he worked on the construction of Trump Hotel Chicago, which incurred $700,000 in flood damages after three men allegedly broke open a water valve after being denied drinks at the hotel bar. The plaintiff suggested this act of vandalism was a result of an attempt to sabotage his career.

Other recent Illuminati-targeting suits also name Trump as a conspirator in the New World Order’s agenda. A July complaint — which also names “Hilary Rodham Clinton” and “Barak Obama” — accuses Trump of conspiring with Disney and the CIA in abusing mind-control technology in three July incidents.

“The Voice singer killing, the Pulse club massacre, and the alligator killing of a toddler at a Disney Resort are all the result of CIA electronic surveillance which is a wireless signal sent via satellite with GPS tracking to control and harass an individual human organism or animal to ‘act out’ or take some other type of CIA affirmative action,” the suit charges.

Donald Trump’s involvement in the alligator incident is not immediately clear in the suit, but a handwritten lawsuit by the same plaintiff in March clarifies that “upon information and belief, plaintiff believes that Donald Trump is also being manipulated by the CIA using this technology.”

The plaintiff asks for “$150,000,000.00 plus costs interests and fees for an order disclosing the electronic surveillance on Donald Trump.”

The case, unfortunately, is closed. But the Kaighns and others say the courts will vindicate their theories.

“There’s plenty of research out there,” Gregory Kaighn said on the existence of the New World Order. “Whoever takes us on and challenges us on that factual issue in court will certainly lose.”
