Trump’s victory is America’s Brexit
Trump’s victory is America’s Brexit
By David Semple
When we were in high school in the 1970s we used to read and wonder about the fall of the Roman Empire. How did it happen and why did we move backward into primitive feudalism? We used to wonder what it was like to live in the dying days of the Byzantine Empire in Constantinople. And we were confident that we would never witness such events in our lifetime. We thought the West had a few centuries left before the inevitable civilizational shift. We were so naive. Today, forty years later, we are witnessing the dying days of Rome and Constantinople in our lifetimes. Yet most people are completely oblivious to the drastic changes to the West since 1975.
Two major democratic events this year represent an awakening in the Anglosphere countries of the West. Europe meanwhile is asleep. Run by an elite of unelected officials who despise the freedoms that come with nationhood, the European Union continues to tear apart the cultural and social fabric of the what is left of the small nations of Europe which emerged after the fall of the Roman Empire. Like the great dictators who destroyed the European enlightenment during the 20th century, the Brussels elites are trying to build their continental empire dedicated to the destruction of national identity and the building of a new form of socialist medievalism designed to undermine the democratic movements which emerged in Europe following the revolutions of 1848.
Liberal Europe is dead. It was destroyed by the totalitarian dictatorships of the 1930s. The Weimar dream of a democratic socialist welfare state ended in the darkness of the Third Reich. Winston Churchill’s vision of a “United States of Europe” was hijacked by the mediocre political class which emerged during the postwar years, people who had done nothing to stop the murder of seven million Jews during the “New Dark Age” of Hitler’s wartime occupation. This political class, although not genocidal murderers like Hitler and his henchmen, had similar ambitions to the wartime dictators. They wanted to build empire on the destruction of the liberties of the European people. The European Union is the Fourth Reich. But unlike the Nazis, the European elites have used communistic political techniques to offer the illusion of liberty and democracy on the surface, while all decisions on behalf of the people are made without democratic accountability. The European Union was until recent years Stalin-lite.
Today, however, with the emergence of widespread antisemitism across the continent, the European Union is embracing the new antisemitism which seeks to disguise the evil at the core of Jew-hatred by using official European political institutions to attack, and undermine the independence of, the State of Israel. Officially, the European Union and many of the national governments within, are conducting a policy of open antisemitism in support of Israel’s enemies. Europe today represents the rejection of the nation state. And European leaders resent the independence and sovereignty of Israel. As a result, Europe, which sees itself as a model for world government, is now Nazi-lite.
The Europeans do not understand Brexit. They never will. For they do not understand the Anglo-Saxon mission which has its origins in the English Reformation. Protestant England sought to resist the spread of European tyranny on English soil. English Protestants took up the Ancient Hebrew journey out of Papal servitude towards the pursuit of freedom and national independence, seeing themselves as God’s Chosen People. The founding of the Thirteen Colonies in America was the English version of Moses’ exodus of the Hebrew people to the promised land. America was not just New England. It was also New Jerusalem. This same New Jerusalem eventually saved half the world’s Jews from Hitler’s gas chambers by providing refuge for all the persecuted people of Europe during the late 19th century. For five hundred years the English have fought to defend their sovereignty, their freedoms and their national independence from European tyranny.
When the great Liberal government of Herbert Asquith chose to go to war with Kaiser Wilhelm’s Second German Reich in August 1914, this was Brexit. When Winston Churchill rejected several peace deals from the Third Reich in 1940, he chose to continue the war, promising nothing less than victory to the British people. This was Brexit. For Asquith and Churchill, Germany was a threat to English freedoms and liberties. When the British people voted to leave the European Union in June 2016, this act of Brexit represented the final rejection of European supra-national governance in order to preserve English freedoms. For the American people, the election of Donald Trump to the presidency is American Brexit.
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, like the Eurocrats today, reject American nationhood in the pursuit of building a world global empire, with “free trade” and open borders, much like the European Union. President Obama and Mrs Clinton are both socialists, like their fellow European globalists, who reject the Anglo-Saxon economic model upon which the wealth and power of the United States was built. They reject the Biblical mission upon which the English New World was founded. Puritanism and Profit built America. For the Americans, the United States offers the oppressed people of the world sanctuary from serfdom, inviting immigrants from all lands to fully participate in the English-speaking free society which has its roots in the five Books of Moses. Obama was brought up as a Muslim. He does not have an American mindset; he is filled with resentment and hatred of the English liberties for which the founding fathers of the United States fought a revolution. Hillary Clinton is a product of two generations of Trotskyist revolutionaries who have been attacking American freedom inside the confines of American academia for over seventy years. When they bring the name of God in their speeches, they are speaking with forked tongues. For they are the new atheists who share the Marxist vision of society built upon the foundations of ideological economic theory.
American Brexit is the final rejection of Obama’s America. This is the America which has for eight years tried to build alliances with the tyrannical regimes of the world, the champions of the police state at war with liberty. Thus we have President Obama’s love affair with the Muslim Brotherhood and its governance of Erdogan’s Turkey and Morsi’s Egypt. Barack Obama has supported Islamist jihadis in civil wars in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan and Libya. Secretary Clinton was present at the creation in supporting the rise of Mohammed Morsi. She was the driving force behind the fall of President Gadhafi of Libya and American support of the Sunni rebels in Syria during the so-called Arab Spring. The Democrat leaders are on the side of communist the regimes in Cuba and Venezuela. This is the America which is trying to recreate the United States on the communist model they admire so much in these South American dictatorships. The political vision of both President Obama and Secretary Clinton is inspired more by Marx than Moses. American freedom, like English freedom, has its roots in Moses.
The American people, or at least sixty million of them, have decisively voted for Moses over Marx. They want to resume building their land of milk and honey in the New World, in the “city on the hill” that will forever be the land of liberty and not Old World of feudalism, from which the Marxists got their inspiration. Americans began in recent years to feel that their country was turning into Old Europe, from which their ancestors originally came in search of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
President Obama and the Clintons have, for over twenty years, taken the American ship of state off its course on a dangerous voyage towards the darkness of government controls, centralization of power and soft totalitarianism, which becomes harder with each year passing year under their rule. The Democrats, the oldest political party in the West, have now been transformed into hard socialists under President Obama and the Clintons. The party of Jefferson has become an American version of the ultra-left-wing British Labour Party, under Jeremy Corbyn.
This week sixty million brave Americans stood up in revolt against Obama’s vision of America by rejecting Mrs Clinton’s promise to offer the American people another decade of spiralling descent into the Clinton/Obama pact with global governance and withering sovereignty. This week the American people chose liberty. Donald Trump may not be able to keep all his promises to the forgotten people of America, but he will, at the very least, stop Hillary’s road to serfdom and learn to love liberty again. The American people have rediscovered their Anglo-Hebrew roots and have chosen Brexit.
Donald Trump is a strong supporter of Israel and has made a commitment to move the American Consulate to Jerusalem, a move which is long overdue considering it has been the nation’s capital since 1950. He has also guaranteed that a “Trump Administration will ensure that Israel receives maximum military, strategic and tactical cooperation from the United States, and the MOU [memorandum of understanding] will not limit the support that we give. Further, Congress will not be limited to give support greater than that provided by the MOU if it chooses to do so.”
Unlike the Obama Administration, Mr Trump realizes the Two-State Solution is impossible as long as the Palestinian Arabs continue their incitement and terror campaigns against Israel. Under a Trump presidency, the United States “should support direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians without preconditions, and will oppose all Palestinian, European and other efforts to bypass direct negotiations between parties in favor of an imposed settlement. Any solutions imposed on Israel by outside parties including by the United Nations Security Council, should be opposed.”
After the dismal relationship between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu, Mr Trump wants to offer Israel greater support and closer relations than any previous American government, without any of the usual dangerous demands for territorial concessions to Arab interests. Putting the alliance with Israel ahead of all other relationships with Middle Eastern states may allow the United States to use Israel to create stability in the region, unlike in the past when American governments treated the Jewish State as the problem rather than the solution. This would be a return to the vision of Israel’s role in the Middle East as conceived by David Lloyd George and Winston Churchill at the start of the British Mandate.
In the year of Brexit and American Brexit, perhaps the English people and their American cousins can find common cause with their spiritual brothers and sisters in Israel to keep alive the flame of Western civilization in a world in which dark tyranny is on the rise.
