The stench of defeat is in the air, reminiscent of the Gallipoli campaign’s tragic aftermath during the First World War. For those unfamiliar, the Gallipoli campaign was a disastrous attempt by the Entente powers to seize control of the Ottoman straits. Their ambition? To capture Constantinople. But what they encountered was a brutal reality check, with roughly 300,000 casualties over a year of desperate combat. This battle, which began in 1915, stands as a testament to the catastrophic consequences of Establishment overconfidence.
Fast forward a century, and another battle was brewing. This time, not on the shores of Gallipoli, but in the heart of America. Donald Trump, the business magnate, took a bold step down the golden escalator of Trump Tower, announcing his intention to lead the United States.
The Democrat-controlled corporate press, with Hillary Clinton at the helm, initially cheered him on. Their belief? That Trump’s nomination would spell doom for the Republican Party. But as he clinched the nomination, the very media that had once lauded him turned their guns against him. The barrage of fabricated stories and the infamous Russia collusion narrative were all part of a grand design to tarnish his image.
It’s baffling, isn’t it? The very Establishment that once embraced Trump, now sought to obliterate him. This was a man who had been a part of their elite circles, celebrated as an American icon. Yet, David Plouffe, an Obama adviser, made his intentions clear: “It is not enough to simply beat Trump. He must be destroyed thoroughly. His kind must not rise again.“
But why? Why was Trump perceived as such a colossal threat? The answer lies in his independence and vision. Trump was not a puppet to the corporate oligarchs, the shadowy figures of the Intelligence Community, or the globalists that make up the so-called Deep State. His vision of economic nationalism posed a direct challenge to the interests of multinational corporations and those dreaming of a one-world government.
Trump’s ideals of individual liberty, national sovereignty, and adherence to the U.S. Constitution were a stark contrast to the collectivist and authoritarian aspirations of entities like the World Economic Forum.
The world watched in astonishment as Trump triumphed over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Against all odds, with limited resources and facing international opposition, Trump’s message resonated with the masses. Clinton’s overconfidence led her to make strategic blunders, like campaigning in Texas instead of crucial states like Wisconsin. Despite the overwhelming support from the media and the political establishment, her campaign faltered.
One would think that such a defeat would prompt introspection. But no, the elites, blinded by their arrogance, sought scapegoats. They blamed Russian interference, societal prejudices, and even social media. Anything to avoid admitting their own failures.
In this silent war between Trump and the Deep State, the parallels with the Gallipoli campaign are uncanny. Both are tales of hubris, miscalculation, and the underestimation of the opponent. And just as the sands of Gallipoli proved treacherous for the Entente powers, the shifting sands of American politics have shown that the battle is far from over.
The truth, as they say, is often simpler than the most intricate of lies. Yet, the Establishment refused to acknowledge the most straightforward explanation for the 2016 electoral outcome: a dormant American majority had been roused from its slumber. This revelation was too potent, too real to be recorded in the annals of history.
If the media had dared to admit that the passionate Trump voters were, in essence, striving to reclaim their nation from the leeches that had sapped its spirit for years, then the only logical conclusion would be that Americans were rejecting the treachery and anti-nationalistic tendencies of Washington’s elite.
In the aftermath of the 2016 electoral debacle, the Establishment’s actions have been driven by a singular obsession: to negate Trump’s victory and to delude themselves into believing that the American populace’s thirst for change was merely a fleeting whim. Their thought process was linear and deeply flawed: discredit Trump, and his vast base would inevitably disintegrate.
In their desperate bid to tarnish Trump’s image, they unleashed a barrage of tactics. The “Me Too” movement was weaponized in a bid to alienate his Christian base, but it backfired, ensnaring more of their own than they had anticipated. They cried foul over Trump’s business ventures, even as he sacrificed personal wealth for public service.
The Mueller Inquisition was launched, painting Trump as a traitor and a felon. And when Trump dared to question the dubious financial dealings of the Biden clan, the narrative was twisted, and an impeachment saga ensued. Yet, the American spirit proved indomitable, seeing through these charades and leaving the Establishment floundering.
The 2020 election, marred by allegations of fraud and manipulation, was less about the electoral outcome and more about breaking Trump’s spirit and that of his supporters. Dissenters were branded as “spreaders of disinformation.” The tragic shooting of Ashli Babbitt was twisted to fit their narrative. Questions about the staggering vote count for a relatively unpopular candidate were silenced with threats and intimidation. The final blow? A concerted effort to imprison Trump for the very “crimes” the Establishment had orchestrated.
But America watched, and America remembered. Trump’s popularity surged. His image became a symbol of resistance against oppression. As Biden faced jeers and boos, Trump was cheered on by diverse groups, signaling a united front against the tyrannical elite. It seemed the fate of the nation was intertwined with that of Trump.
The Establishment’s relentless assault on the American spirit mirrors the doomed Gallipoli Campaign. Their hubris blinds them to the impending fall, much like the mason who, while plummeting from a building, remains oblivious to the imminent impact.
But for those watching from the sidelines, the end is clear, and it draws near.
The American spirit, resilient and unyielding, will prevail.
