Moreover, it will have massive reverberations across the U. Taking a step back, part of the reason I was immediately able to see through the Trump con was due to my upbringing in New York City. The guy was constantly in the news my entire life, so I had a pretty decent understanding of where he was really coming from and what makes him tick.
The mindset of your typical NYC-based billionaire real estate developer is filled with all sorts of perspectives and priorities, but thoughts of populism are not amongst them.
Trump used populism to get elected, and then as soon as he won, immediately appointed some of the most destructive oligarchs imaginable to run his administration.
The reason I warned about this incessantly at the time, is because I learned the lesson from the Obama administration.
Prepare for an escalation of imperial war around the world and an expansion of brutal oligarchy. The removal of Bannon is the end of even a facade of populism.
This is now the Goldman Sachs Presidency with a thin-skinned, unthinking authoritarian as a figurehead. Weed obsessed, civil asset forfeiture supporting Jefferson Sessions.
The Trump administration just bacame ten times more dangerous than it was before. With the coup successful, Trump no longer needs to be impeached.
Watch the corporate media start to lay off Trump a bit more going forward. Rather than hysterically demonize him for every little thing, corporate media will increasingly give him more of the benefit of the doubt.
After all, a Presidency run by Goldman Sachs and generals is exactly what they like. The media took Donald Trump, cut his balls off, and handed them to Goldman Sachs. This is not to say I think the media will become pro-Trump, it just means the obsessive and aggressive propaganda will be dialed back considerably.
Trump is now inline, and he will be rewarded by the establishment for that. He will learn that the more he gets with the program, the easier his life will be and the more secure his power. He is merely being conditioned, and my forecast is that Trump will gladly embrace the worst parts of the establishment going forward.
The whole thing was just an act to get elected. Firing Bannon is just Trump coming home to who he always was.
Trump voters who supported him based on the idea that he would bring forth an agenda of economic populism got played. That much is pretty undeniable. Too many people have invested way too much in Trump to admit they got played.
Remember, many people built up their entire careers and public profiles by cheerleading Trump into office. Most of these people are egomaniacs. What does an egomaniac do when confronted with information that they got something wrong?
Do they publicly admit their error and give credit to those who voiced skepticism, or will they figure out a way to change the subject in order to maintain their relevance and position amongst their fans?
I think you know the answer. As such, right-populism is at a crossroads and this is what I expect to happen. There are enough unthinking fans out there to allow this to happen. The credibility gap will widen and widen, as it should.
Trump was a fake and if you were so easily tricked by Trump, why should we trust you on any other subject? Right-populism is now very much discredited, as its leader has been shown to be nothing more than a narcissistic con-man.
This will not be an easy hole to dig out of, yet with some deep reflection, my hope is a new right populism can emerge that is more in tune with Rand Paul than Donald Trump.
As such, an enormous opportunity has opened up for left-leaning economic populism. A lot of you will discount the appeal of this movement because many of its most high-profile members are unabashed socialists.
This is a big mistake. Remember, Donald Trump won the Presidency not because he was especially great or loved, but because his opponent was terrible, he talked in populist terms, and people just wanted to give a middle finger to the political establishment and corporate media.Dao also noted that only "a very small number of people within the Times" know the identity of the writer.
