What Asia Should Learn From Trump’s Rise

  • The greatest geopolitical risk in the world today is the possibility of a Trump administration.
  • Trump’s message has struck a chord because of deep-seated frustration with the current political system.
  • Fear about the risks of international trade and a stratified society are not unique to the US.
  • Asia is also becoming increasingly polarized, just like the United States and Europe.
  • China’s leadership is playing the nationalist card to deflect attention from real problems.

The greatest geopolitical risk in the world today is the possibility of a Trump administration.

From building a wall along the Mexican border to barring Muslims entry into the United States and demanding more money for U.S. military operations from foreign governments, his proposals would lead to an about-face in Washington’s relations with the world.

Yet it would be folly to dismiss Donald Trump’s ire against the international community as off-the-cuff alarmist rantings. His message has resonated so widely across the United States.

The reason why his message has struck such a chord with a large swath of the electorate is deep-seated frustration with the current political system.

What’s more, fear about the risks of international trade, globalization and an increasingly stratified society are not unique to the United States. Thus, the Trump phenomenon could easily go global.

Worries about being left far behind in the race to accumulate wealth and spreading hostility towards an “invasion” of foreigners is already acute in Europe. Those fears could easily take root in Asia as well.

Trump’s outdated argument

Trump has repeatedly argued that, under the existing trade rules, the United States has been taken advantage of. He believes that Washington should take back the concessions it has given to foreign competitors.

Japan and China in particular have come under attack from Trump as the biggest economic threats to the United States.

He has been highly critical of any moves that would further enhance trade relations with either country, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement.

It is easy enough to dismiss Trump’s argument as being outdated. After all, while the U.S. trade deficit with Japan peaked in the 1990s, the issue now is too much more about the exchange rate rather than the actual flow of goods and services.

Meanwhile, there are signs that China’s economic engine may not be as robust as it had once seemed. Across Southeast Asia, several countries are vying to become the next low-cost “factory to the world.”

Trump’s take on the current state of economic affairs in Asia may be outdated at best, but the truth is that the world’s most populous and economically robust region in the world is also becoming increasingly polarized, just like the United States and Europe.

Asia also has very large swaths of the population unable to benefit from the fruits of an interconnected global economy.

China playing the nationalist card?

While an unprecedented number of Chinese tourists have flocked overseas to shop at some of the world’s toniest stores and Chinese investors are key players in global markets, the divide between those who are accumulating wealth and those barely scraping by continues to widen rapidly.

The leadership in Beijing has actually emulated its big capitalist brother in Washington by essentially paying mere lip service to correcting the widening gap between those who have gained from globalization and those who are losing as a result.

While the number of those who could suffer is likely to rise, efforts to establish social safety nets have not been forthcoming.

Granted, since China is not a democracy and the Communist Party is not accountable to voters, the need for Beijing to address those concerns may not be as immediate as in countries that need to court the electorate.

Still, China’s leadership is quite adamant about playing the nationalist card in order to deflect attention from the real problems facing the country.

By fanning the flames of xenophobia and rallying nationalist fervor, Beijing has been able to buy time to avoid addressing the pressing issues facing an increasingly polarized society.

Trump phenomenon not unique to the US

However, there is no indication that the ultimate political frustration about the immense inequality between the population at large and the system’s true insiders, prominently those at the top of the party hierarchy, is lessening.

What this points to is that, Trump’s abrasive personality aside, his ability to tap into the fears of those who feel marginalized is hardly unique to the United States.

Just as there is a hunger among U.S. voters to find ways to finder greater equity and benefit from closer global ties, a similar yearning is bubbling away worldwide, including in East Asia.

The real challenge that the current U.S. presidential election cycle presents to Asian governments is whether they can act in time to address those fairness issues before it is too late.

    We may assume that most disenfranchised are passive couch potatoes that won’t fight for redistribution of wealth and opportunity that most are unlikely to make good use of anyway. And we may also assume that the rich with their servant managers will never grant a deep redistribution without a fight. Once empowered, why should a Trump deliver to the poor and undeserving – in his mental universe? I cannot find a good reason. He will not even try. Will he strike a deal with the establishment? I mean do the ‘reasonable’ thing for a risk averse elite establishment muggel? No, Trump can be expected to grandstand by shaking things up. The establishment hates the unpredictability a Trump would bring. But since the average Trump will quickly fail when given responsibility the danger is limited and a broad learning effect may even be desirable. However, the end of democracy is likely when a demagogue succeeds in ruthlessly unplugging the checks on his power claiming to require that to deliver on his promises… But then, a democracy that does not deliver delegitimizes itself and might as well give autocracy a new life. Equating autocracy with Mao, Stalin or Hitler is a cheap exageration. There may also be the scenario of a ‘good king’ that does a better job at governing than our failing democracies… well, it may be also be a dream.

  • Rod Patrick

    Ha ha ha! It’s not fear. It’s self defense and justified anger against the excesses of the Government that propelled both the Tea Party and the rise of Nationalist Trump as the leader of the working class Americans. But Republicans/Conservatives and Demoncrats/Liberals still think it’s all about ideological divide. That’s where they are wrong! That’s why most lamestream media don’t get it. The Establishment (both D and R) and the conniving 4th State Media are the ones that are TRULY AFRAID that their elitist and easy lives will soon be over.

  • Gilchrist

    Paying off American politicians to betray the American people is the subject here, and has zero to do with communist thugs like China.

  • Gilchrist

    We already have experienced this in the USA, and his names are Barry/Soetoro/Barrack/Hussein/Obama

  • Snitch_in_Time

    The greatest danger of a Trump presidency is Trump’s ability to sell Trump rather than what Trump will actually do. The level of ego investment of the average Trump follower would have made Stalin, Mao, Perone, Castro, and Hitler green with envy. The problem with cults of personality, and make no mistake about this being a YUGE cult of personality, is people only really care about following the Dear Leader. They really wind up not caring where they are being led.
    Here is an example: A fellow who was walking door to door for a candidate for U.S. House ran into a Trump supporter. He politely asked what he liked about Trump. The answer was: “The Republican Party has gone too far right!”. So the gentleman asked: “Can you give me an example?” and the good Trump supporter said: “Yes, Cruz wanting to ban all Muslims is an example.” The canvasser, stunned, said: “But, sir, isn’t that a Trump position, not a Cruz position?” and homeowner thought for a minute, wrinkled his brow, and said: “I still support Trump, now I cannot talk further.” and closed the door. This is a VERY TYPICAL Trump supporter and in that allegiance to the man not the policies is where the real danger is found.

  • Edmund Burke

    The international picture is not the focus right now. There is much work to be done. Trump’s securing of the nomination and subsequent election is far from a fait accompli with all the plots and forces arrayed against him, one plan after another. It’s enough to enjoy how he has got the democrat elite structure their radical anarchist groups, the state controlled media and the GOP in an absolute frenzy.

  • Boilertom87

    The media still doesn’t get it. Status quo hasn’t worked for decades. Whether you like Trump or hate him, he has single handedly made (most) Americans excited about politics again.

  • Uncensored

    World War 2 put the US in a very unique position. The rest of the world was almost destroyed and the effects of the war touched every nation. But except for Pearl Harbor, America was untouched. That fact enabled us to be the factory to the world.
    I don’t think that can ever happen again. But, the fact that we have outsourced virtually all of factories, and when any new industry arises (Information Technology), we race to out source it as well, will only lead to further economic failures for a great many people.
    If we aren’t going to benefit in our position in the world like we did post war, why should we then continue to act like we did. Paying the defense costs of countries like Germany and Japan, does nothing to help us. What I see is in this election is a lot of people tired of being forced to be magnanimous. Why are we helping the world, when no one, or at least the perception of no one is helping us?

    I voted for Donald Trump because to me, he represents a common sense approach.

    “From building a wall along the Mexican border to barring Muslims entry into the United States and demanding more money for U.S. military operations from foreign governments, his proposals would lead to an about-face in Washington’s relations with the world. ”
    So your thesis is that the prospect of America telling the rest of the world to care for their own populations and to provide for their own defense would be cataclysmic.
    And yet the world resents our “intrusiveness” and “hegemony” and scream “YANKEE GO HOME!” at every turn.
    I wish you fur’ners would make up your minds…

  • Alucard_the_last

    You’re correct. Bush was also terrible. We are not talking about 8 years of Obama’s reign of terror, we are talking about 16 years (minimum) of anti-America/n policies that don’t benefit the people with open borders being on the top of the list and the endless demand by the far left that are constantly met.

    Crush the filthy, greedy, evil, Establishment. The tax on every cent of income over $1,000,000 should be 100%. They should be able to scrape by on a million dollars. The Establishment should be held to every rule, law, policy, they force on the people. Establishment children should be barred from attending any school other than a public school. No establishment family member down to 3rd cousin may work for any agency or company providing services to the Establishment Regime.

  • People [shrugs]

    The truth is much more stark:

    Trump is a symptom of a much larger issue, America’s complete and utter decline.

    America has become so corrupt and dishonest it can ONLY produce the disastrous candidates it has.

    People act as if 2016 is some sort of outlier, when in fact it is the natural outcome of decades of corruption and dishonest and political manipulation.

    The media and the political and economic and elites and thought leaders are so detached from truth, and so resistant to reality, that Donald Trump was BOUND to happen. In fact if would be astonishing if it didn’t.

    The only real hope for avoiding decades of disaster is for the people leading our societies to be honest. And that isn’t likely to happen. So.

    Prepare yourselves for many more wars, refugees, economic collapses, violence, etc., etc.

  • TXRider

    The reason that America has aligned itself with Trump’s message is because the majority of Americans do not like the kow-towing that Democratic leadership has done to other nations in an attempt to appease them (for no discernible reason). The smugness of self-proclaimed “progressives” will continue to be rewarded with failures in the polls and a continued resurgence of conservatism in America and other nations worldwide. This is the New World Order and it is not liberal in nature or substance.

  • oz

    The status quo has worked perfectly for George Soros, Warren Buffett, big banks and Wall St. Not coincidently the same people who own everything and who write the trade laws, healthcare laws, etc. Trump represents independence and the working class and more importantly can’t be bought. Can’t have that.

  • Seniorsquadldr

    Crush the Hollywood Establishment, evil, vile, rich, monsters.

  • seewillie

    The reason Trump is successful is that there is a broad perception out there that he is actually independent. The public has finally come to the realization that their representatives and their presidents are nothing but cheap little political whores that in NO way represent their interests. His policies…or lack thereof…are secondary to that fact. Citizens are tired of being sold down the river to by these scumbags who represent the banking and corporate elite…..the 0.0001% who own most everything.

  • Beautyon

    Trump is not tapping into anyone’s fears, quite the opposite. His message, deliverable or not, is completely positive, and he does not rely on fear. What he is saying is simple America is going to secure its borders, negotiate with everyone, not fight wars, and reduce taxes so that industry stays in America.

    The people who are frightened are women like Shihoko Goto, Washington Intelligentsia “Programme Associate” where people like Trump, common businessmen are sneered at. This is nothing whatsoever to do with vaguely outlined blue sky policies spluttered out on the campaign trail; this is Class War, and Goto and her class are the goto people to smear Trump. It can never work.

    The vast majority of Americans do not care about Think Tanks and Policy Wonks. They are real Americans, interested in their own well being, not geopolitics, Political Correctness, Internationalism, nation building and all the other plagues that have brought America to its knees. Americans simply do not care about these things, and neither should they. Trump is tapping into this, and because it is incomprehensible to Wonks that peopel are not interested in Foreign Affairs and do not read it, the only possible explanation in their pallette is “Bigotry”, “Hate”, “Fear” and other Pavlovian reactions that do not touch the reality in any way.

    Whatever you think of Trump, and whether his policies are achievable or not, his win would be a crushing blow to the system. Even if it were not, his election would be supremely entertaining. There is nothing more pleasurable than to see the insiders faint at the possibility of Donald J. Trump constantly catching them on the wrong foot, scrambling around for an explanation for his popularity and coming up with the most threadbare nonsense masquerading as analysis.

  • InTheShelter

    That is the stupidest idea I’ve ever heard. Punishing the rich won’t fix the problem. Taxing people and giving more money and power to the government won’t fix the problem either. Government IS the problem. Too many regulations, one sided trade deals, unfair currency manipulation by our competitors, and we are busy shutting down the coal industry for no reason which means the energy to do business in the US cost 2-4 times as much. Taxing people does not solve that problem.

  • Alucard_the_last

    You posted exactly the same thing I’ve been saying for years. Socialism works in Europe because the US taxpayer funds 60% of Europe’s defense budget which leaves them open to use their tax funds for social programs. This is why the left has never belched to withdraw from Europe because even they know that the social programs will collapse within a few years if they actually had to foot their own defense budget. And to think, they are suicidal anyway so why are we even there?

  • orlfla

    You are wrong. You haven’t seen corruption until you see the inner workings of Communism in China. They will throw in a sacrificial lamb every now and then so they can make their own headlines about how they are fighting it. However, since practically every business and even individual is involved in it to some extent it’s not difficult for them to find someone who has pizzed off someone higher up so they can be grabbed, thrown in jail and possibly executed.

    Yes, I lived there for a number of years and it is almost the norm that small gifts are laid on the corner of a clerk’s desk so an application for something is moved to the top of the stack. And when that one gets stamped off then it’s on to the next desk to hand the paperwork to the next clerk or official and quietly place another gift on the corner of their desk. Don’t want to do that? No problem. Be ready for your paperwork to sit for weeks or maybe months because others are cutting in ahead of you with their “gifts” which you decided not to bring.

    And you don’t see anything higher up over there because even though it goes on they do not have an open news media so people are told only what they want you to hear. We do here and that’s why you hear of it.
    Been there, done that.

  • oz

    Trump plays off of fears? What about the establishment under the Bush admin who pushed fear to sell us the Bush bailouts? Which is NOT free markets BTW. What happens when you reward crooks? You get more crooks! They should have been flushed out of business where 10 more companies would take their places. Yet it’s ok for them to do it, but point fingers and claim Trump is doing it – when he is not. People aren’t afraid, they’re pissed off!

    We live in an era were in some contrived way we have had the notions of Right and Left in America hijacked by the European versions of Right and Left when there is no relation what so ever. In Europe extreme Right and Left are simply the two branches of Marxism (Nationalist Socialist/Internationalist Socialist). In the 20th century we lost hundreds of thousands of our people fighting both those philosophies. They were classically what was considered the root of evil in this country and the free world. They don’t teach history in school any more instead they let creeps like George Soros re-write it for America. Now we have globalist/fascist wolves in sheep’s clothing masquerading as internationalist communist (i.e. China) No wonder we see all this caos! The misinformation campaign has reached critical mass and “the people” are starting to see right though it.

  • Bob Lawbla

    Well said.

  • InTheShelter

    Ha, yeah, okay, whatever. You make the mistake of thinking that Trump supporters are all mindless cult of personality followers, and that’s not the case. It’s not that we necessarily like Trump, it’s that all the other options are business as usual, and Trump has pointed out real problems, immigration, bad trade deals, political correctness, the Fed, the government still keeping 28 pages of the 9/11 report secret, etc. Basically a government failing the people.

    And Trump’s position is NOT to ban all Muslims. It was to TEMPORARILY ban Muslins until we can find a way to properly vet them. For someone who’s looking down his nose at Trump supporters for their supposed ignorance you should don’t exactly score high on the IQ chart yourself, do you?

  • Shears-of-Atropos

    An interesting perspective: recall the events of the mid-1800’s, when a social revolution swept through Europe. We’re talking 1848 (+/-) a couple years. Wars, threats of wars, outright rebellions, all in the name of political reform.

    Every country has that right and responsibility.

    I want all illegals deported.

    No one has the right to come and stay here because they want to.

    I want my country’s laws enforced and our sovereignty respected.

    I want a business for endly government.

    I want the rest of the world to pay for their own defense.

    I want other countries that use our military bases as their defense to pay US for our presence.

    The USA needs to stop aid packages to other countries, let them take care of themselves.

    Trump has tapped into the fury here against the Establishment that has said they would do things then do the opposite when in office.

    The Left tramples the Constitution

    The Right betrays the voter.

    Put another way, the charismatic leader who appears in troubled times may not even know or act out a pre-planned agenda. All he need do is provide the “tuning fork”, or lens, to resonate and focus the existing unrest and it will happen. The existence of Rush Limbaugh should have been an early warning of the level of discontent in the U.S. at the time. How slowly we learn!

    Trump people are not asking for redistribution of wealth, that’s liberal progressives saying “in order for me to succeed you have to give me your money”. That’s utter crap. Trump people want government to get out of their way and quit working against them, they want government put America and Americans first instead of our backstabbing trade “partners”, they want the government to quit stealing their money through wasteful taxes and they want to work and build their wealth themselves.

    It seems your criticism more aptly applies to the current liberal progressive ideology.

  • Max42

    Reading the media around the world one would think that Donald Trump, rather than being a candidate for President, should be locked away in solitary confinement for life because he is a grave danger to humanity. In fact, the reaction to him is so negative and polarized, it’s no small wonder that he continues to garner more votes. That’s an illustration of how little credibility the mainstream media has with the average US voter.

  • Brian washere

    America was great once. In 1964 it produced over 95% of what it consumed and was leaving the rest of the world in the dust economically and technologically. It was a symbiotic culture where even if you didn’t have an advanced degree you could carve out a solid living for yourself and your family through boundless opportunities in low skilled manufacturing.

    And then it started to take root…. Affirmative action, feminism, kumbaya hippies, socialism, today’s form of liberalism, drug culture, gang culture, unchecked illegal immigration, UBER greed from major corporations and their insatiable thirst for yielding $6 per share versus $5 per share, a distancing from church and God in favor of faux religions like the hoax of AGW and political correctness that makes calling any of that out a social taboo.

    A lot of people get it but a lot are too stupid or so far down the rabbit hole they don’t care. America needs to be picked up by the neck and shaken and slapped back into reality. Problems need to be addressed at root levels and not spend all our time tip-toeing around trying not to offend anyone only to come up with quarter-assed solutions.

    Establishment candidates, as the establishment themselves, are bought and paid for and are not the solution.

    We are reaping what we have sown and its time to take our damn medicine and come back to reality.

    Folks the only reason other countries are concerned about Trump is because their fleecing of America will be better controlled if Trump is elected. He isn’t going to end trade just adjust the rules a little bit to give some relief to USA. Same with immigration; not stop, it just get control. His comments have been mis-quoted on a daily basis.

  • roastytoasty

    It is not fear that feeds Trump’s popularity. ANGER toward incompetent officials (elected & unelected) is the prime force. The bureaucrats & politicians live well and talk big while infrastructure decays & lawlessness spreads. Politicians & bureaucrats are being paid well to do a job and they are failing. If Trump gets elected he will say “You’re fired!” to a great many people. FEAR of Trump is not with the people. Fear of Trump is in the ranks of corrupt government.

  • DJ H

    It took over 200 years, lots of mistakes, getting vastly different groups of people to cooperate… but the USA carved out a powerhouse economy to flourish under a constitution that didn’t seek to over-regulate and tax it to death… initially. “GLOBALIZATION” is just another world for… “Stealing Hard Earned American Jobs & GIVING THEM TO OTHERS.” We can send economy advisors to help them start their own economies but they must be responsible for creating laws to MAINTAIN IT. These unbalanced trade agreements have killed American industry, jobs and financials to feed our people first.
    “Give a person food, they eat for one day. Teach them to garden, and they eat for a lifetime.” It’s time we cut the purse strings and let these countries work through building their own businesses and economies… and send our jobs back home.

    The world may fear Trump, but only because it means they are going to have to start learning to depend on themselves and will not likely be able to fleece the US for economic aid that gets us nothing in return.
    We literally made Japan and Germany the economic power houses of the last half of the 20th century. But we literally got nothing in return. Partly our own fault as we forced both countries to write pacifism into their constitutions. Neither country will send fighting forces outside their borders (not talking about pretend NATO exercises).
    NATO has about as much defense capability as a wet paper bag, and that hasn’t gone unnoticed by our adversaries. The world has become far more dangerous since 9/11 but it’s not because of Trump.

    Globalists all over the world will learn fear again. Trump will come after them. The era of global establishment rule is over. The writing is on the wall in Europe as well. The West will never submit to totalitarian rule again. Babbling about inclusiveness to pit minorities against each other will not help it anymore.

  • Cainemarko

    While I am a Trump supporter, lets please address the issues from a real perspective. America wasn’t an industrial powerhouse in the 60’s due to ANY greatness or ability on our part. It was SOLELY due to the fact that Europe and Asia were decimated by WW II and had no infrastructure. While we had it all, due to the buildup during the war. The rest of the world has simply caught up now.

    Also, we as a country still have incredible manufacturing output. We are just working smarter, not harder. Technology in the manufacturing industries has dramatically increased production per worker. One worker can produce 10 times as much as a worker a decade ago. This has far more to do with no new jobs being here, than them “getting moved to Mexico”.

    Again, I am voting for Trump, but he is making the right points with the wrong reasons.

    By the 60’s America had rebuilt most of those war torn nations. That 20 years post war for the love of God. America was on top because of a work ethic that far exceeded European nations in particular and little interference by government. Standing in stark contrast to the mount Everest pile of government regulations that exist today.

    No one including Trump wants to stop immigration. Immigration needs to be contained and controlled so that it delivers the best interests to it’s citizens and national sovereignty. The immigration system has been systematically eroded since Teddy Kennedy’s dubious revamping of the immigration system back in 1965. It’s Trump and a majority of citizens who wants to put common sense back into the immigration system in order to protect the American way of life instead of sitting idly by watching the eventual erosion of the success of the great American experiment.

    Trust me I am not arguing that we don’t have too much government interference. But if that was the sole point Trump was making then I would have no issue with his argument.

    But estimates for the war have the death toll upwards of 75 million people. In addition to limited natural resources in the first place, much less what was lost during the war. This takes generations to rebuild. 20 years is nothing.

    Then of course during that rebuilding phase, America was truly the only game in town. So even when they did manage to get some infrastructure back in place, America was still the leader. With the lion’s share of the markets. That takes time to overcome as well. 20 years it may have been, but when you are rebuilding an entire continent with people and resources, its really barely any time at all.

    Everyone around the globe loves to jump on the gripe about America bandwagon –
    until something happens to them, then it’s oh please, we need your help! How many people around the world has the US rescued, fed, clothed, protected and had lives rebuilt for in the last century. How many natural disasters have we sent people to assist with, how many billions have been spent just because we’re nice people.

    Then, let’s look at the companies and trade imports. how many countries screw with their dollar to imbalance what our goods cost over there, and how much do they undercut to coax businesses to work over there? Although, in truth it’s NAFTA, H1b abusers, and insane union and taxes that helped that.

    No one is saying (all) of these countries are evil (with the exception of places like Iran) But – they know the giant cow they’ve been getting free milk from is about to dry up and they’ll have to start working for themselves. Sure we’ll still help, but it’s not going to be one sided anymore.

  • Brian washere

    You make valid points; however, the point I was making originally was that manufacturing hasn’t disappeared from the face of the earth. And we are in a lot of cases not working smarter. Those jobs still very much exist, just not here. In fact, it is still largely American manufacturing just being done in other nations.

    Why? Well, the regulations as I mention are a huge part of it but also cost of living in America that translates to higher wages. Corporate greed is nothing new. But politicians who fleece the treasury to buy votes and manipulate laws so as to be beneficiaries of not only fleecing the treasury but huge corporate donations is a much more modern (relatively speaking) thing.

    Look at how politicians manipulate trade and the H1B visa program for their benefactors when there are tens of thousands of qualified Americans to fill those jobs but the companies, and their bought and paid for politicians want cheap indentured servitude to maximize profits and subsequently political donations.

    With respect to Europe… one need look no further than their labor laws as they exist today to illustrate my point regarding work ethic. That’s who they are, and who they have always been.

Trump will remedy this by returning power to local school boards and blocking courts and liberal judges from meddling in what is none of their damned business. Perhaps we can hope this may even put an end to those embarrassingly stupid bumper stickers proclaiming “My child is an honor student at Sewerbrain High School!”

  • Sippin’ on

    I think the fuel to Mr Trump’s fire is how overly politically correct society has become… or I should say, how anyone with a critical opinion of another group is instantly shamed by the word “racist” or “bigot”.

    One can be for building a wall on the US’s southern border without being a racist towards Mexicans.

    One can question the policy of bringing in tens of thousands of refugees from a part of the world that the US has been at war with for 20 years and not be a bigot.

    But in the ultra politically correct world that we now live in those opinions are now worthy of one greatest of all insults, calling someone a bigot or racist. The frustration people feel from not being able to speak plainly about real concerns is the fuel. Trump is excellent and accelerating those frustrations.

    Want to stop Trump and others like him? Stop shaming people with real concerns, stop calling people who have critical opinions of other races, religious groups, etc… stop calling those people racist bigots.

    Washington has ignored America far too long. That is the explanation for the Trump phenomenon. Obama is a de facto emperor, a king with no opposition. Not exactly what we in the USA like. And Clinton evidently is not going to be crowned Queen either judging by the primary turnout. I would like to see somewhere comparing total votes cast for Clinton and Trump. It would be instructive as what I have been able to ascertain is that Trump got tens of millions more votes than Clinton in these primaries.

  • whoflungdung

    You will see a shift in tactics from the left. Modes operandi will be to make Trump seem like the extremist that everyone fears. They will skew his take on ILLEGAL immigration and twist it and say he is “anti immigration”. They will say he will isolate America with his “anti trade” when he is anti unfair trade. They will demonize him every way possible because they have come to the conclusion that no matter what they do or say about Hillary, NOBODY will ever like her. So if they can’t make someone like their candidate, they will make them hate the other one. So they will ramp up the name calling. “Bigot, racist, extremist, instigator, elist, rich”. These are a few of the names in the que that they will be beta testing to see which names poll best in attacking Trump and they will hone and refine them and then they will scream the most efficient names from every liberal media outlet they can. What they don’t know is it will feed the anger and hostility of the silent majority. People will come out in droves. Landslide in 2016 is coming, and they can’t see it.

    Its funny, how the democrats campaign on the inequality that exists in the US (as if Hillary Clinton or establishment Bernie (the suck on the government teat forever pseudo socialist) ever lived paycheck to paycheck in their lives), but have no clue as to how to create jobs and marginalize the destitution of that inequality.

    Trump on the other hand brings forth hope via his business acumen, pro capitalism and leadership abilities that may in fact do what the democrats can only dream about.

    So the world’s greatest ‘geopolticial risk’ is a democratic populist movement in which working taxpayers try to regain control over their government from international elitists who care nothing about the interests of their citizens. It’s not communisim. It’s not terrorism. It’s not fascism. It’s not totalitarianism. No, the terrible risk is good old-fashioned grass-roots democracy. Fascinating.

Meanwhile Americans are being killed and raped, and robbed by people who shouldn’t even be here. If you are okay with that, then you are wrong.
    If you are okay with the Nation’s dialog being about stupidity and addressing problems which only exist in the minds of people with Marxist views, then you are wrong.
    You are certainly entitled to you opinions, and may express them openly without fear of reprisal from Trump supporters, Chicago showed that the others who disagree with the most fundamental American freedom, to have an opinion and endorse it, are the enemies of the very freedoms that millions have held dear for centuries. Oh, and if you are okay with people being violent and thuggish at events which are attended by thousands of supporters for the speaker, you are wrong.

    Seems pretty simple to me, one side wishes to silence and abolish, the other side just want to exercise their rights as Americans. If you don’t get that, or disavow that, you are wrong, and NOT an American.

  • Nathan Bedford Forrest

    Reading between the lines this is actually a pretty good article. I can see why the world’s despots would be wary of the Trump phenomenon, just like our despots in Washington are. His supporters are waking up and directly challenging the comfortable status quo of the globalists, whether communist or quasi-democratic. It’s the power that Trump is giving to the people that is scaring the he11 out of them. Just look at the people who are most vitriolic against Trump: Career politicians, Washington insiders, The Mainstream Media, Lobbyists, Establishment billionaires, Globalists, New World Order groups, Open borders/cheap labor groups. Nowhere are average people upset about Trump. Only our “Betters” are upset, the Globalists.

He must be a threat to the world order they have created to benefit themselves. Newt Gingrich himself said about a week ago on FOX news that “Trump is not involved in secret societies” and “hasn’t had the initiation rites”……this is nothing but a net plus for the American people as it proves Trump is not part of the globalist agenda to rob our treasury blind and sell our sovereignty down the river, and this terrifies the establishment who have gotten mighty used to their cozy lives at our expense.

    This writer would like you to believe that only the exchange rate fluctuations are the primary reason for the US Japanese trade imbalance. The US ran a 68.6 billion dollar trade deficit with Japan in 2015. 68.6 billion dollars is 68,600 millions. So imagine if we ran a lottery every year and gave 68,600 poor people a million dollars,this would more than likely effect a whole family,so 180,000 to 200,000 poor families would become millionaires every year(imagine the good to the country). The trade deficits the US runs with countries like Japan($68.6),China(over $500 billion) and Mexico($58 billion) build the middle class in those countries at the expense of the American middle class.

    I can say it is true. A friend recently went to adult ed college – machineshop, etc. The instructor said their tool and die programs were failing – no one going into that trade. There’s such an extreme shortage of tool and die that manufacturers have to either bring in foreign workers who ARE skilled or send the work overseas.
    The head of Apple even said that same thing. China saw what was happening here – they observe us more closely than you think. They knew of the shortage and worked to get their people trained and skilled.
    I work in technology now, but used to be in automotive. We can’t find skilled SQL administrators. In automotive it’s hard for the dealerships to find truly skilled techs to do more than plug in a computer and read a screen or replace parts. No one can think and troubleshoot any more.
    And these other countries know this – and are scrambling to make up for that.
    Sad that OUR country can’t see this and work to train tool and die and other trades here in this country.

    “Worries about being left far behind in the race to accumulate wealth and spreading hostility towards an “invasion” of foreigners is already acute in Europe.”

    It’s not about accumulating wealth, it’s about bringing middle class jobs to the US. The President of the United States’ first priority should be to his own citizens. Bad trade deals that benefit other countries to the detriment of it’s own working class should be considered treason. Do you think China is worried about the well being of the rest of the world? Please.

    “…spreading hostility towards an “invasion” of foreigners…” It’s not hostility to foreigners, it’s being responsible about who comes in and what their motives are. Why is that so bad? The United States is an over generous nation when it comes to social programs to residents AND illegals, and it’s getting more generous…again, to the detriment of the middle class (someone has to pay for all of this free joy the government happily hands out).

    It’s time the US has FAIR TRADE. With the trade deficits we are incurring, there is already a trade war going on, and the US is losing.

    And it’s time that the countries we still protect since WWII, step up and contribute to the cost of that protection, or have us leave and defend yourselves.

That is purely the wishful thinking of the threatened. And as well, that his concerns originate in an outdated, irrelevant perspective. Exchange the name Hillary for Trump in the article and it begins to become much more applicable and accurate. It’s not a very noteworthy attempt at persuasive propaganda. Sophomoronic. Just because some are doing well in life doesn’t mean that they are immune from despising the rampant corruption that’s not only pathetically obvious in government, but in the brainwashed, stilted media as well. Our essential institutions are rotting from within and the cantankerous odors cannot be pleasantly perfumed with the flowery, blame-shifting words that fill such disingenuous screeds. If Trump is so far out there, like Bernie, then why are the terrorist and agit-prop arms of the special interest groups so hell bent on sabotaging his free speech? Because a majority, anti-establishment uprising threatens to neutralize the full-Nelson by which the nation’s productive have been subdued for decades? Indeed. And led by a savvy, determined business mogul who knows every closet harboring the sacred skeletons.

But at least he gets the discussion moving. “Build a wall” = actually let ICE do their job, “Ban Muslims” = actually fund the system enough to do proper background checks.

    The US tolerated Asian trade shenanigans because she needed them to contain the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Result was hollowing out the industrial good paying blue collar jobs in return for lower cost consumer electronics??!!! Not everyone is suited to go to college to learn engineering, medical technology, software, etc etc. Worst even these jobs are being outsourced or replaced with lower paying Asian H-1B workers. All the promises of free trade were a nightmare for the blue collar American workers and now the white collar tech workers are starting to feel the effects. Add to all this mix is overseas wars that result in US taxpayers helping Iraq build new schools, roads and services while Americans are told by their government that they do not have the funds for their crumbling schools and infrastructures. The only political party that “opposes” free trade, the Democrats, pay lip service because they take donations from corporate America. The Democrats add to blue collar woes by supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants and refuses to enforce the US border/immigration laws. Jobs leaving, illegal workers pouring in, importing H-1B workers have resulted in nearly half of the newly created US jobs go to foreign born workers while over 60 percent of US STEM college grads are forced to take non STEM jobs. The average American is not angry at Asians or Asian countries, we understand that their leaders are suppose to negotiate for their country’s interest. We are angry at our leaders for poorly negotiating trade agreements, failure to enforce border and immigration laws, and allowing corporations to lie about H-1B applications. It has been 30 years of “free trade” and “open borders” abuse and the average American is not taking it anymore. Trump is the only politician who understands the problem and addressing it.

    America had rebuilt those nations, like Japan, with newer and better technology than ours. Thats why they kicked our butts. We are now reaping the rewards of globalization which wants to make us all the same which means our standard of living goes down and everyone elses goes up. One thing the US has over other countries is the creativity of our workforce and our R&D. So much is developed here and then made overseas. We do need to keep a larger share of that here. And we do need to limit immigration to higher educated and those with something to offer, not uneducated criminals and laborers. Americans need access to entry level jobs too.

    Anyone who lives in the Southern states understands building a wall isn’t racist, it is necessary to prevent state governments from collapsing from the weight of illegal immigration. All systems – health care, education, etc. are burdened to a point that residents cannot absorb with their current high level of state income tax, property tax, sale tax, city tax, etc. The answer is NOT to open the borders and let government take over to allow socialism to emerge — free everything to everyone. Americans KNOW we need a wall for these reasons and to STOP to flow of heroin and other drugs destroying our people.

    Cry racism as much as you want, but that’s not going to work this time — people are just too smart. Further, we are immune after 8 years of crying wolf (“racism”).

    So, keep trying lefties …. as Trump would say, swing for the fences!

Yes, Vietnam or Cambodia will be the next site of Coolie Labor Inc. Trump is not focused on Japan and China per se. He is focusing on the entire phenomenon of US multinational corporations importing the production of Coolie and Peon labor, whether from TPP OR NAFTA! Or China. Or wherever unfair trade practices and currency manipulation costs us jobs.

  • Carol Hadenough

    Absolutely right!

  • Tom Devine

    Even more so, the producers in places like China keep all of the gross margins which pays their labor, suppliers, factory costs and other expenses. So, that money stays in the country and helps support their economies. Yes, we get a little slice of the pie, the crumbs really, when we sell the goods. But, then the net profits are returned to the producers which are taxed by the producing countries and once again helps their economies. We’re getting screwed. A 25% tariff would do the trick, it tips the balance.

    Yes, Trump has hooked into the frustrations and fears of the ordinary working American, whose manufacturing jobs have been given to the Chinese, and whose construction and other manual labor jobs have been given to illegal aliens.

    The politicians they voted into office, who promised to fix things, have done little to fix anything, except to feather their nests, increase the handouts, and push the country much, much further into debt.

    So, the question is: Will Trump listen to his voters or do what he wants, when he wants?

Most reporters could do little other than repeating these catchy words ad nauseam. The funny part of it all is that they’re still very fond of passing on these senseless name calling as valid response.

    Imagine if you will a shelf with a Soda that costs $1.89. and one of the same brand and type that costs $2.55. The more expensive one will sit on the shelf and gather dust while the $1.89 one would sell and be replaced and sell again and again. Surely any Globalist would recognize this fact.

    That is the position the Globalists place American Workers in within their own land. They must compete against foreign workers who don’t carry the load. Even the trade of the foreign workers is protected by the American gunboats and airplanes. So the American must subsidize his competition that is putting him out of business! The American is condemned to have to chose between supporting his retired parents and survival in the world market all because the Globalists demand no tariffs to compensate between the USA and foreign economies taxes and conditions.

    Trump people are neither naturally angry nor are they crazy. They have carried the load too long and are unable to carry it with the Globalists in control of the tax systems. We have to take the reigns of power and take over to survive even to carry the load or our society and of our place in the world. The Globalists were the insane party to believe that their parasitic lifestyles could be continued forever.

    Even as early as 1947 with the Marshall Plan which in Europe was a success in europe the damage that resulted by sacrifice of our coal and steel industry gave us no reinvestment and the Rust belt within 20 years. This policy is suicidal for the USA to continue. I for one challenge any Globalist to show me how they make the world order more prosperous, safer or even better in any way by subjugation of the USA under their insane policies. A weaker USA, a poorer USA only collapses their agenda and brings world anarchy.

    Tell me how I inspire those rag headed kids of the middle east to stop terrorism and join a civil society if my own children are being crushed by your Globalism. How should they think our way is anything but foolish unless my kids are getting richer and more powerful?

    Diplomatic communications were quiet as a mouse.
    I can’t be bothered said Obama in a snit
    I’ve got to rest up for a big fund raising bit

    So all through the night as four Americans died
    Obama closed his eyes, sucked on his thumb and sighed
    And so he rested all safe and snug in his bed
    As visions of campaign cash danced in his head

    From the start it was obviously a terrorist attack
    So they had to hurry up to try to hide that fact
    If you tell a lie often enough it will make it so
    And they sent Ambassador Rice on every Sunday show

    It’s only a bump in the road Obama blithly stated
    What difference does it make says Hillary its so over rated
    Whatever the facts are we’re sticking to our tale
    While the guy who made the video is languishing in jail

    And I heard the terrorists exclaim
    As they dragged the Ambassador out of sight
    Happy Jihad to all
    And to all a good night

    We’re not supposed to worry about Hillary being ready to risk war with Russia?

    Hillary Clinton promised us a speech on what she’d do to destroy ISIS, but what she gave us was a speech detailing how she would destroy Syria – and drag the US down the road to another unwinnable war. What she essentially proposes is that we fight a three-sided battle – against ISIS, on the one hand, and against Bashar al-Assad, Russia, and Iran on the other.

    She elaborated on her “no-fly zone” scheme, saying she wanted to set it up only in the north. This means not only that the US air force will be protecting the “moderate” Syrian rebels – a coalition of US-supported head-choppers and al-Nusra, the Syrian affiliate of al-Qaeda – but also preventing Russian warplanes from flying over the huge swath of territory in the north controlled by the Islamic State – including Raqqa, their capital. So how does she intend to keep Putin out of the skies over Raqqa – by shooting down Russian planes…

    So, building a wall and actually enforcing who can come in is a crime, hummm – Australia has some pretty tough immigration laws where you actually have to have money and a needed skill to come in and no one is burring them. As for banning Muslims – to me the message was we are not going to let persons in until we have a real way of actually understanding who they are — imagine that. If the group attacking and radicalizing against the West were Swiss and Canadians then my bet is he would have focused on them. But ……………… that’s not the case.
    Trump is where he is because of the RINO republican leadership’s refusal to represent their constituents year after year. Basically the peasants have grabbed their pitchforks and told the ruling class to FO. History is full of examples where the people have said no. The real anger is the opposition trying desperately to shut him down. The last time a business man was close to the WH it was Ross Peroit. He warned that if we passed NAFTA we would hear “A giant sucking sound” and it would be American jobs going to Mexico. Looks like his crystal ball was dead on.

There is NOTHING unreasonable here, except for those who have enjoyed a free ride for decades and who have a very left wing spin.

    Woodrow Wilson was the leader of the progressive (i.e. socialist / communist) movement in America. You cannot get more un-American than that and that explains the perspective of the author.

    I see the right (nationalists) gaining strength and numbers all over Europe as well.

    The libs and neocons say Trump can’t win yet they are in complete panic mode trying to come up with a way, any way, to stop him.

    Seems to me, if they thought he really could never win, they would not be so terrified of him winning :)

    Author, like most insulated “journalists” who refuse to view the world as it IS, but insist on viewing it as they think it should be, erroneously thinks Americans support Trump out of FEAR.


    Americans supported Obama out of FEAR. Fear of being labelled a racist society if we didn’t.

    Americans are sick of SUFFERING for everyone else’s BENEFIT. Everyone else is permitted to line their pockets and improve their situations AT OUR EXPENSE. For at least 10 years America has been telling politicians in no uncertain terms to put an end to it and they fed us BS during campaign season and then ignored us once they got to the DC gravy train.

    TRUMP cannot be bought, there is no gravy train in DC that has anything to offer him that he couldnt already have without the headache of DC politics. Americans know this and he is clearly tired of watching the rest of us get used for the benefit of everyone else.

    Meanwhile, there are signs that China’s economic engine may not be as robust as it had once seemed.

    Because the US has already traded all its wealth for Chinese goods and gone into Greek mode borrowing. The late lamented US middle class was the source of wealth for the Chinese nouveau middle class.
    Japan is a close ally and has a need to export because of its gross overpopulation and lack of natural resources. Should probably show them some indulgence. China on the other hand is a competitor with whom we should probably compete with rather than surrender to. Send 400,000 Chinese students back to China. Free trade is like fielding a football team with an offense but no defense against a team that has both an offense and defense. They score at will. Low cost labor will prevail over high cost labor eventually, but free trade greatly accelerates the process.

    There is a big difference between signing and ratifying. The 12 signatory countries have 2 years to ratify TPP.

    Some are speculating that Obama will put the TPP ratification vote to Congress in the “lame duck” period of time between the Presidential election vote (Nov. 8, 2016) and the new President’s inauguration (Jan. 21, 2017)

    Trump is spoiling the globalist’s agenda and par-tay … a vote for Trump is a vote to keep America as a sovereign independent nation.

    A vote for anyone other than Trump is a vote for a globalist, who will continue the globalist agenda in America of destroying what it was, and turning it into a subservient little region in the new global political entity … which is just around the corner

  • Charles Rich

    Trump isn’t really right wing. He is a moderate. I don’t know how being for enforcement of existing immigration law is automatically right wing. And generally, the Republican Party is for free trade. He isn’t. He has an R next to his name, but I’d hardly call him right wing. You should probably re-tag this.

    There are too many people in the world and not nearly enough jobs. Way too many people. The areas of the world still having 5 and 10 children need to be cut off if they refuse to stop. Clean drinking water cannot be a human right for people with 12 kids. Massive sterilization needs to be forced on all low IQ societies. We probably need a war to eliminate billions. Billions more IQ 70 people cannot be provided jobs and organic food and clean water. It’s insane. Put chemicals to permanently sterilize them in their dirty water. We are killing our planet. Robots are coming. The always have to have growth model is 100 years outdated. Nobody anywhere in the world should be allowed more than 2 kids. Societies that refuse to quit inbreeding and marrying their first cousins with massive resulting birth defects need to be wiped out. Drastic medical intervention to keep severely disabled babies alive needs to end. It will effect 1st world and 3rd world countries. Not every autistic kid can get a $30,000 a year babysitter from government schools. If you will never work or contribute anything it is just expensive babysitting. It all sounds cold hearted but population reduction is necessary. Resources should focus on kids who will grow up to contribute something. Our present policies will end up killing us all. Common sense needs to replace social justice today.

  • nomatic

    So I work with a guy who is pretty hard core lefty, sops up all the Bern and Maddow he can.

    Every time I put Trump by him he starts drooling and driveling that rich white guys are evil and toupees especially are the devil BS.

    Recently he bitched that Trump was ‘pandering to the fears of that angry white group that makes up most of the nation’.
    Pressed on why those white people were angry and what specific fears Trump was pandering to, the immigrant muslim admitted: They’re pissed about the state of the economy and think that out of control immigration (some illegal, some legal like H1B’s) not only has a lot to do with it but has a major part to do with why the middle class in America is shrinking.

    For every RACIST political organization out there please consider that regular Americans love immigrants. However also please consider that ILLEGAL immigrants are why we can’t have nicer things.

    Finally on corruption. Yes the system has been plagued by corrupt individuals. If you are a democrat and fear Donald Trump, get off your Fing high horse and start being useful by getting rid of Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Clinton family permanently, as the non-establishment GOP just did with the Bushes.

    This is pure leftist ‘twaddle.’ Misrepresenting facts, faulty conclusions, and taking ideological failures as the ‘norm’ of society means that the entrenched globalists and/or leftists are running scared. Scared that their World of self=aggrandizement will disappear with Trump and the American people finally able to correct wrongs and corruption. Not only is this article ‘leftist twaddle,’ but it’s also a sign of the fear from the entrenched and parasitical left: such as the clintons, obama, gore, Wall St, companies moving overseas, Chicago, leftist/democrat politicians, Countries unwilling to pay for services provided—I mean c’mon! We saved their bacon twice in the last century, and some war debt was never paid to us. That and all the freebies of the last decades will create this unreasonable fear of the left. They brought it on themselves with their corruption, ideology, greed, and failed policies. Leave Trump alone, and let him continue with the American people.

  • Weihan Xingqi

    The citizens of the USA and all those affected in Europe by the mass influx of ‘refugees’ from the Middle East need to get one thing clear: The powers that are busy with plans to dump Trump are the same diabolical minds that have pushed the USA to the brink of a merger with Mexico and Central America, creating the necessary mundane conditions (e.g., enforced acceptance of Spanish and educational indoctrination programs designed to vilify US history) for this unification in the process. They have flooded cities and communities all across the USA and Europe with illegals from regions slated for annexation into zones of regional governance, annihilating in one fell-swoop the concept and sanctity of the nationstate.

    What does it say about a small elite cabal that is willing to sell out all “principles” to negate the will of tens of millions? This is PROOF positive that the USA has been taken over by a cabal of globalists who are hellbent on pushing the nation into an unwanted union with Mexico and Central America – in explicit defiance of the will of the people!

  • Weihan Xingqi

    Exactly. And that’s the very reason scores of millions support him and not the ridiculous globalist puppets who’ve been pushed by the mainstream talking heads since day 1.

  • Edo Tokyo

    I think Henry Kissinger said it back in the 70’s: it will be easier to lower the standard of living of Americans than it will be to raise the standard of living in other countries. This is the agenda of the new world order and progressives.

    Americans are afraid as more people feel that the ideal of the American dream is dying. We need to shore up our foundation before it collapses under the over spending of our government and the insurmountable debt this will inevitably create.

    Hopefully businessman Trump will steer the US back into black ink.

  • Brenda Unibrow

    There is is a reason why its called “illegal” immigration. Besides the reasons I listed, it’s also inherently unfair of them to cut in line ahead of legal immigrants waiting in line to get in.

    Trump and America embraces law abiding immigrants.

That these ideas are even contentious shows how twisted has become the thinking of the government class and their supporters.

    It is not necessarily ‘nativism’ if one just thinks a nation should enforce the laws that are already on its books. Trump may be unpalatable to many, but two things are in his favor. His views on ILLEGAL immigration resonate with a huge number of LEGAL Americans of all ethnic and economic backgrounds. Secondly, though the left press won’t talk about it, there is a HUGE number of people who detest Hillary Clinton and everything she REALLY stands for, which is her own enrichment and narcissism…and the thought of her being president makes them physically ill.

    There aren’t many politicians, especially at the national level who aren’t narcissists. Even if they don’t start out that way, the constant yes-men and cheering of hand-picked crowds soon turn them that way.

    Shihoko, Your analysis is deeply flawed because you have based your understanding of Trump’s message on what left-leaning media outlets have said about him, which are incorrect. They morph what Trump says and then attack the morph. Really, such a tactic is actually slander. I encourage you to listen to one of Trump’s rallies on youtube and listen directly from Trump’s mouth. Let me give you one example. Trump loves Hispanics. What he has spoken against is the excess of our immigration policy. It’s like someone who pulls up next to you with their music blaring. It’s not that you hate music, but it’s the excess. The loud music is excessive. So Trump loves Hispanics and Mexico, but when you have 30 million plus (based on the number of work permits the US government has printed for illegals) people enter the US in a short space of time, while the migration benefits the illegals, it has an opposite effect on Americans whose wages now face downward pressure. One more example, Trump isn’t against free trade, but he does want to re-negotiate trade deals that have seen trillions of dollars of wealth exit the country.

  • Larry Smith

  • Ronn Parsley

    Marsha: The problem with your population reduction philosophy is this. It sounds great as long as the criteria for who is to be “reduced” does not include you. But I caution you to be careful what you wish for. Once we give the government the power to reduce the population, and the legitimacy to do it, we will find that government very hard to stop. Then what happens when that government decides that people like you don’t deserve to live. What if people with your particular social or political ideas are deemed unwanted and deserve to be “reduced”.

    To avoid the above scenario, it is best that we hold all human life dear and cherish the sanctity of human life. Then let’s find other solutions to the very real problems you raise.

  • Michael Huffman

    You really need to be more critical in your thinking. And why do you infer that only Trump has an ego? Have you looked in the mirror lately? Egos are part of human nature.

You may find that you think the way you do because you’ve been told this over and over again without taking the time to analyze it yourself.

Angry at a president who has flouted the Constitution and promoted illegal immigration. Angry that he used the irs as a political weapon and angry at a SOC who had the audacity to email our national secrets over the wilds of the internet.

  • EscapeFromCalifornia

    The media chorus seems to think it’s ‘fear’ that motivates Trump voters. While doubtless that’s true to some extent with some people – use of that word suggests that the anxiety many feel is unjustified. And that’s not true or fair. People are upset because the evidence is in – and the government-centric, rules-oriented (read: purchased by lobbyists) global trade system is not working out for well over half the 3/4 of the population. While there are other factors at work (robotics, cloud computing, process automation) – it’s obvious to anyone really looking that IP and human capital are being controlled, manipulated and commoditized to the benefit of a very small group of wealthy and powerful individuals. This isn’t capitalism, and its not a democratic republic. It’s gov’t, industry and money co-opting one another to benefit a few. And what we’re seeing in the #NeverTrump ‘movement’ is really the convulsions of those in control who see the gravy train ending. And it has to end – or I fear we will see global unrest on a scale we haven’t experienced before.

  • odys

    Not true. I think GM sells more cars in China than in the USA. Made in China, of course.

    The real problem is not free trade, as long as it is the exchange of goods and not people nor IP. Our problem is that Washington has jacked up the cost of hiring Americans so we are at a competitive disadvantaged. Obamacare’s chill on the economy has not been ended, yet.

    The corruption in the American government has gotten so obvious. Our elected officials are no longer representing us. The world’s well being is not on my radar.

    But isn’t it ironic that GOP candidates, most recently Romney, have for years railed against China’s trade policies; yet once in office they do nothing.

  • EscapeFromCalifornia

    Nativism is a loaded term and totally unfair. Is it immoral for a nation to look to its own interests first (not in hostility to others, but as a protection of its own people)? What other nation in the world feels a moral obligation – and spends $600 billion-plus – to police the seas, to intervene in genocide, to arbitrate disputes, to pay billions in tribute to keep other countries from going to war with one another (Egypt, Israel & Jordan, for example; or America’s commitments to Japan and Korean defense; or…)? Is it immoral to ask who should pay for this and how much? Is it immoral to irritated that those who benefit from American protection willfully damage us through unfair currency and trade practices (and IP theft – which China is estimated to perpetrate to the tune of $200-$300 billion every year)? The US economy has stagnant for 3/4 of her population for decade(s) – wages are flat while housing, health, education and other costs are rising 5-50% per year. People are being squeezed. The markets are up for investors – but savers and retirees earn nothing in a zero-rate environment. Part-time work is the only growth sector for working people. American’s see the carnage that the ‘New World Order’ has done to its own people, and we’re finally pushing back. That’s not nativist – that self interest, or a positive expression of nationalism. And btw, China, Mexico, Japan and others are all doing the same and always have been. It’s time for the US act rationally. Not to create conflict, but rather to stop sacrificing itself at the altar of globalization. Let’s start with punishing currency manipulation – as that’s at the root of this mess for the West ….

    Charles, you really need to be more critical in your thinking. Trump supports free trade, but the media doesn’t say that. They instead morph what Trump says and then attacks the morph. What Trump says is he’s going to re-negotiate trade deals -huge difference. Currently, we have over a half trillion dollars in wealthy exiting the country each year in trade deficits. They tax our exports but we don’t do so with their imports (relatively speaking).

  • Democracy has become a farce and a deception. It’s now a sham perpetuated in order to distract, beguile, and exploit the masses by keeping them enthralled and handicapped with a seductive illusion. For the establishment elites, democracy has a utility tantamount to jingling a set of keys in front of a whining infant public. They’ve commandeered the system and its meaning, and adorned it with whatever new ideological constructs or confusing illusions that best facilitate their power.

    Democracy has been gutted of its original purposes and ideals, and it now serves as a vacuous ritual employed to distract, divert, and occupy the attention and energies of the public. It’s a tool of the State and its occupants, rather than a barrier to their domination.

  • American democracy is a calculatingly maintained sham. It’s an elaborate establishment dog and pony show. The entire apparatus has become a method for disguising an underlying aristocratic reign. It is carried on to keep the public fascinated and bewildered by the chimera of collective self-rule. The public is in no way “the master.”

    The elites axiomatically reject democracy and its tenets—other than its usefulness in keeping the masses placated and invested. The notions that the hoi polloi should
    rule, or that majority opinion should be authoritative, or that individuals should be free or sovereign, are all rejected in theory and practice. The elites may have some sympathy for the *ideal* of self-rule, but they reject it as inappropriate or dangerous for the “ignorant and excitable” masses comprising society.

  • The political elites consist largely of a megalomaniacal meddler caste motivated by a sense of inflated self-importance, moral righteousness, and a privileged understanding of the “truth.” They see themselves as prophets and messiahs with a noble duty to bring humanity into a utopian existence. They don’t believe themselves to need the sanction of law or consent; they have the sanction of “moral righteousness”.

    They gravitate toward regimes of authoritarian paternalism and yearn to impose their “enlightened” views on others. The elites do not see it as “offensive” that they need to manipulate the masses and control their thoughts and actions. The best interests of others lie in the political elites assuming control of their lives in various ways. For the masses, *obedience* is the paramount moral principle.

They possess the truth, and the fate of the world rests in their ensuring it prevails. Any view contrary to their vision is based on ignorance, deception, or immorality.

    The elites are uniquely capable of identifying and evaluating the facts and realizing truths. Their positions *are truth*; other positions are stupidity, falsehood, or malevolence. Others lie and distort and allow immoral motives to guide them. The elites are disdainfully righteous and correct.

  • Banksters_Rule_the_World

    For almost 150 years the United States has been conducting an interesting experiment. The subjects of the experiment: black people and working-class whites.

    The hypothesis to be tested: Can a people taken from the jungles of Sub-Saharan Africa and forced into slavery be fully integrated as citizens in a majority white population?

    The whites were descendants of Europeans who had created a majestic civilization.
    The former slaves had been tribal peoples with no written language and virtually no intellectual achievements. Acting on a policy that was not fair to either group, the government released newly freed black people into a white society that saw them as inferiors. America has struggled with racial discord ever since.

    Decade after decade the problems persisted but the experimenters never gave up. They insisted that if they could find the right formula the experiment would work, and
    concocted program after program to get the result they wanted. They created the Freedman’s Bureau, passed civil rights laws, tried to build the Great Society, declared War on Poverty, ordered race preferences, built housing projects, and tried midnight basketball.

    Their new laws intruded into people’s lives in ways that would have been otherwise
    unthinkable. They called in National Guard troops to enforce school integration. They outlawed freedom of association. Over the protests of parents, they put white children on buses and sent them to black schools and vice versa. They tried with money, special programs, relaxed standards, and endless handwringing to close the “achievement gap.” To keep white backlash in check they began punishing public and even private statements on race. They hung up Orwellian public banners that commanded whites to “Celebrate Diversity!” and “Say No to Racism.” Nothing was off limits if it might salvage the experiment.

    Some thought that what W.E.B. Du Bois called the Talented Tenth would lead the way for black people. A group of elite, educated blacks would knock down doors of opportunity and show the world what blacks were capable of. There is a Talented Tenth. They are the black Americans who have become entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors and scientists. But ten percent is not enough. For the experiment to work, the ten percent has to be followed by a critical mass of people who can hold middle-class jobs and promote social stability. That is what is missing.

    Through the years, too many black people continue to show an inability to function and prosper in a culture unsuited to them. Detroit is bankrupt, the south side of Chicago is a war zone, and the vast majority of black cities all over America are beset by degeneracy and violence. And blacks never take responsibility for their failures. Instead, they lash out in anger and resentment.

    Across the generations and across the country, as we have seen in Detroit, Watts, Newark, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and now Ferguson, rioting and looting are just one racial incident away. The white elite would tell us that this doesn’t mean the experiment has failed. We just have to try harder. We need more money, more time, more understanding, more programs, and more opportunities.

    But nothing changes no matter how much money is spent, no matter how many laws are passed, no matter how many black geniuses are portrayed on TV, and no matter who is president. Some argue it’s a problem of “culture,” as if culture creates people’s behavior instead of the other way around. Others blame “white privilege.”

    But since 1965, when the elites opened America’s doors to the Third World, immigrants from Asia and India–people who are not white, not rich, and not “connected”–have quietly succeeded. While the children of these people are winning
    spelling bees and getting top scores on the SAT, black “youths” are committing half the country’s violent crime–crime, which includes viciously punching random white people on the street for the thrill of it that has nothing to do with poverty.

    The experiment has failed– Not because of culture, or white privilege, or racism. The fundamental problem is that white people and black people are different. They differ
    intellectually and temperamentally. These differences result in permanent social incompatibility.

    Our rulers don’t seem to understand just how tired their white subjects are with this experiment. They don’t understand that white people aren’t out to get black people;
    they are just exhausted with them. They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless complaints, and the blind racial solidarity, the bottomless pit of grievances, the excuses, and the reflexive animosity.

    The elites explain everything with “racism,” and refuse to believe that white frustration could soon reach the boiling point.

  • “Beat the people with the people’s stick” (Bakunin)…

    The elites discount entirely the suitability of “democracy” for directing society or selecting appropriate social solutions. This has meant perpetuating the deception of democratic self-rule while systemically disregarding it from behind the scenes. The elites are content to keep the public under the misconception that its sovereignty in the political process is more complete or efficacious than is the actual case. They acquire the public’s allegiance under one set of principles, and then rule by a concealed, “more sophisticated” set. The ruling elites abide the system because it does not threaten their power, and it reduces the risk of losing their heads.

    Happens to be an ancestor of mine, on my mother’s side.

  • The elites who occupy the political system do not believe the rhetoric they perpetuate to justify it. The elites want the public to *believe* it has government of the people, by the people, and for the people, but they absolutely do not want this to *be* the actual case. Government is to be of the people, by the enlightened elites, according to the values and objectives of the elites.

    Interesting. Funny how the angle is always that Americans are angry and fearful. It’s becoming more and more apparent that the one’s with the greatest fear are the globalists. People are waking up. And they are worried it will spread. Good.

  • Gary

    Can’t wait for Trump to pull the curtain back. We get to watch the squirming political figures, from both parties, scurrying like roaches. The bribes, payoffs and corruption throughout is nauseating.
    Go Trump!

  • Savior of the Golden Goddesses

    The people who hate America hate Trump – that should tell you all you need to know.

  • The smear is that Trump supporters are angry. No, they have figured out the screw job the multinationals and the free traders have inflicted on the American people along with wholesale giveaways of our country and rights to international, unaccountable entities. We want that changed and Trump says he will do it and he building a very broad coalition that terrifies the unpatriotic elite. They are not angry but the establishment and elites are totally unhinged and a scary lot to be in charge.

  • Crow_T_Robot65

    And in the current climate, it would be suicide for those who passed voted for ratification. And for that, we can thank D.J. Trump. He has already changed things, and he is not even if office!

    America hating globalist hate Trump… That means Trump is BEST for America.

  • Dante Matterson

    “The reason why his message has struck such a chord with a large swath of the electorate is deep-seated frustration with the current political system.” this reasoning has nothing to do with frustration and everything to do with distrust, dishonesty, and a failure to uphold the law.

  • JTDeth

    The United States has been bankrupting ourselves wasting literally trillions of dollars and many lives both by providing at nearly no cost defenses to wealthy countries in Europe and Asia and trying to stabilize and move into the modern age failed countries with no interest in moving forward. That made sense in 1945 when we faced the communist threat. By by 2016 Japan, S. Korea, Europe and other countries can pay for their own defense. And the US should just let rotting Muslim societies continue to rot in the system they prefer and battle each other as they have for 13 centuries. Trump is right on this.

    The US negotiates trade deals poorly – but worse – we do nothing when other countries block our companies from exporting to them while we allow imports in with no restriction. This has hurt our working class badly and undermined our whole manufacturing industry. Stupid. The US is a chump for failing to use the same cheating methods that other countries use or alternatively for allowing those countries to cheat while we do not. Trump is right on this as well.

    The essence of Trump’s appeal is its rationality. Our armed forces are composed of volunteer patriots, paid and trained by us to serve US national interests – and that is what they should be doing, not being the global policeman. Trade is a good and important part of our economy but should be conducted under the same rules for BOTH sides. When countries cheat we should immediately respond back in a way to punish the cheaters and protect those harmed domestically. Fair competition is fine. But cheating is unacceptable.

    Imagine the new retirees. The Bush crime family, the Clinton crime family, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Boehner is already out, Lindsay Graham, The Obama’s and every member of his administration, Al Sharpton silenced, etc., etc., etc.
    Glen Beck reduced to middle of the night AM broadcasts, Fox news needing a new plan, The Washington Post becoming more of a gossip column, the media, in general, getting back to the way things should be done. The lobbyists and “special interest” groups will need more than envelopes full of cash to push their agenda. The corruption is rampant in both parties as they enrich themselves and other countries with our money.
    Go Trump!

  • ronthornton

    This election is about more than a 78-year old attitude adjuster in Chicago, illegal aliens invading the US with impunity, a concern as to determining who supports ISIS and who simply shares a variation of their religious tenants, and questionable foreign and domestic policy. It has everything to do with elitists and their financial backers desperate to keep control of the process from the masses, regardless as to what party label they adopt. The high and mighty are willing to be even more transparently high handed in ensuring that remains so. Trump’s greatest transgression, in their minds, is not his rhetoric or his actions, but rather the fact that he refuses to fall in line.

  • PC0

    A little maybe. But Trump is speaking in the vernacular of the “Common Folk”, and they understand perfectly what he says and what he means without his Pinky up in the air while he talks.
    Unlike the Washington Establishment and Media who dissect every statement and word in order to distort its meaning.

    1. Philosophical comment:
    Most of the world not now or ever has run itself on Judeo-Christian principles of morality. Most people still live under tyrannical forms of one-man or oligarchic rule. The USA, under a Trump Presidency, might just return to a Capitalist nation ruled both by our Constitution and Judeo-Christian morality. (No blather about separation of church and state will be tolerated; it’s untrue.)
    2. Political comment:
    The fact that the Trump campaign for the Republican nomination is drawing so much popular support and so much media, Demorat and other Leftist hatred is amazing! Trump is shaking up the establishment, the Republican-Democrat alliances that have been bankrupting the treasury, weakening the military and wreaking havoc upon the Constitution. This is what is necessary to save our Democratic Republic from the tyranny of the Left and becoming just another third-world nation.
    3. Examine the term, The Left. Most politically literate people of the world understand the term means Progressive (progressing towards Socialism), Socialist (government ownership of the means of production etc AND the last step before Communism) or Communist, Communism is a wildly Utopian notion that we can all just get along with no bosses (proved false by years of Stalinist Russia and Maoist China). In summary, the Left has brought not Utopia but misery to peoples everywhere it has come to power, mostly by false promises and outright lies. GO TRUMP 2016!

  • rgentbuilders

    I am sick of the globalist agenda (a very telling website name, by the way). I want America to be independent, not dependent.

    Our Founders valued freedom and independence…remember the War for Independence?

  • American Voter

    Socialists worldwide are concerned by the rise of Trump because he promises to re-assert the strength of the US in areas of its interest, as well as stirring feelings of democracy amongst oppressed people everywhere (if US voters can overthrow their communist overlords, we can too). A weak US benefits so-called globalists and strengthens the hands of crackpot theorists worldwide (I’m looking at you, EU).

    Meanwhile, here in the US, our Democratic party (founders of the KKK, party of Robert Byrd, opposed the civil rights act) fight to keep our minorities locked up on their virtual plantation, project weakness, and harm the planet.

    I suggest any non-Americans reading this, visit the US this coming November and vote for Trump early and often. It’s in your best self-interest.

  • tomlaredo

    Agree wholeheartedly. We are just tired of being blamed for the lives the poor and uneducated live. We, the people, did not cause that. The dems and rinos did through welfare, social experiments in school, and allowing illegal immigration. We are tired of being called every name in the racist and xenophobic playbook. We are sick of people saying we “hate” gays. We don’t hate them, we just don’t want that lifestyle forced into our homes.

    And most of all, we as Americans, are tired of losing. To me, it feels a lot like 1979 right now. It is time for a Trump type leader. No safe zones for Rinos and Dems.

  • AlThompson

    Soon will come the day when the triumphant Trump will embolden and empower his Trumpsters to go forth and smash the skulls of the globalist bastards that seek to destroy the sovereignty of America!

The day of the rope shall soon be upon us, and the quiche eating liberals and all of the muslim trash that rape, murder and destroy shall be brought to justice!

The destruction of Islam and the bloody globalist bastards who support it shall be the greatest accomplishment of the century! Seig Heil Herr Drumph!!!!

  • Eugene Harnett

    nothing to back up your statement Miss Goto: “The greatest geopolitical risk in the world today is the possibility of a Trump administration.” Why does this statement look sloppy?

    ISIS is a great threat. China’s military build up is also. Nuclear armed Iran and No Korea also. Huge influx of refugees in Europe disrupting their social norms also. A president who wants to protect its nation’s sovereignty is a greater threat? Why does this non-substantive argument even get published?

  • docdave88

    It’s simple on this side of the ocean.

    We, and by “we” I mean self-identified conservatives, as so completely disgusted with our existing political parties that we are in the process of burning it down to rebuild.

    “time to address those fairness issues before it is too late” Herein lies the problem. The Left wants redistribution of wealth and government control, euphemistically called “fairness” and “equity.” The right wants….well, they don’t know. Just someone- anyone- who will “stand up” to the Left.
    Very few Americans on the Right understand that liberty is the moral ideal, so they flail blindly, grasping for something in opposition to the Left. Because of this lack of clarity on the subject of individual rights, they get Donald Trump, someone incapable of defending freedom on an ideological basis against a middle school debate team.
    It’s Liberty or Death, people. There is no other choice; no middle ground.

  • ECM

    It is easy enough to dismiss Trump’s argument as being outdated. After all, while the U.S. trade deficit with Japan peaked in the 1990s, the issue now is too much more about the exchange rate rather than the actual flow of goods and services.

    Have you been paying attention? He’s been hammering China on currency manipulation for months (not that Japan’s hands aren’t filthy in this regard, re: Abenomics)…

    Oh, and guess what? Today we found that the US trade deficit hit its highest point since 2008…and guess who had their best trade surplus in years just this week? JAPAN.

    Next time, would you be so kind as to at least attempt an impartial recounting of the facts of just this past week?

  • Dividencop

    Good point, but he will need to appeal to a broader group, particularly in the general election, in order to win.

  • Bob White

    Trump has been against these suicidal trade deals all along. I remember him talking about the fact that we had a trade deficit with every country that we traded with and about the effect of the vicious currency manipulations of the mercantile nations back in the eighties. Certain people got rich exporting jobs and squeezing a century of wealth out of the middle class while telling us all about how great ‘Free Trade’ was, but most of us got poor as the ground was cut from beneath us. Now the class that has been under political, financial and economic attack by the Wall Street job exporters since the end of the Reagan administration has been given a leader. The days of institutionalized robbery are over. Even if Trump is murdered by one of the vicious thugs that the terrorist left is sending to his rallies, the days of everyone meekly training their replacements are at an end. There will be a new party, a party that has nothing but time to burn and the will to burn whatever is nescessary. Our national resources are wide and deep. We don’t actually need one single import from any other country. Free trade means trade that freely goes both ways on a level financial playing field, not Goldman Sacks America ‘fixing’ an old US company by moving it to a rigged trade zone and firing all the American workers. Want to get rich? Why not work for it, invent something that everyone wants instead of Wall Street style looting and currency manipulation.

  • Dan Austin

    People are getting tired of the same leaders making the same promises and not delivering.

    Take the southern border with Mexico, for example. Anyone with any sense realizes that we could stop the flow of 99% of the drugs, gang violence, and illegal immigrants into the country, some of whom are criminals and rapists, if we really wanted to.

    People don’t even care if the flow across the border continues because of utter incompetence or for political reasons, they are just tired of leaving it in the hands of the ‘establishment’ leaders, who simply can’t or won’t fix it. if fences and walls truly don’t work, they should tear down the walls and fences around the White House and all military bases.

    It’s like taking your car to the same ‘professional car dealers’ over and over again to get it repaired, but they never fix it right and the car keeps breaking down. Eventually, you just take the car to someone else, even if they aren’t a ‘certified professional car dealer’.

  • fritz62

    Yawn, go sell it to a third grade grammar school class. There ARE other things in life. Just because that’s your focus in life, doesn’t mean everyone thinks the same. And before you get started, we don’t hate liberty, or fear it either, it’s just NOT THE ONLY THING WE THINK OF. The working class right doesn’t want wealth expropriated for us like the working class left, but that doesn’t mean we are still buying the argument that our political focus should be on tax rates. We care about our communities, our Jobs, our schools and our Children. We care about “liberty”, but we understand there is more to life. Attaining happiness by (hopefully) living meaningful,virtuous lives, instead of pursuing every itch, scratching it, and then calling it happiness.

  • TashaTchin

    Several years ago, it was stated that the US has the export profile of a Third World nation — agricultural products (tobacco, lumber, unprocessed food stuffs and hides) and scrap metals. I don’t think much has changes over the last few years to improve the situation.

  • Mike CJ

    Another person giving a brainless analysis of Trump. Thus, missing what’s going on an why. The simple, simple truth is that politicians have been dishonest and derelict in their duties and treating the US government as a big feeding trough. So, we get many laws just unenforced. If enforcing the laws would get lobbyists to give them funds, or advance one political agenda, it happens. If not, they don’t get enforced. We get trade deals that highly favor the other side. Example, articles my business imports from China are charged a 3% tax. My items going to China get a 30% tax, making it impossible to sell. And, similar in many countries. THAT’s why your jobs are going away. Not some complicated theory promoted by some. Polilticians and their handmaidens don’t want to be exposed as incompetent, lazy and dishonest, so they are freaking out and spreading mis-information. Example in this article. Trump only said a temporary halt to Muslim refugees until we figure out ISIS methods of infiltrating them. Not some permanent bar to Muslims as mentioned or implied in this article.

  • Snugglesgodofdeath

    Trump wants to put Americans first. That is a worthy goal and one any American politician should embrace. Instead, we have a near constant whine about how Trump is a “populist” and how “dangerous” he will be. Trump is not perfect but he’s considerably better than HRC.

  • bhumphreyTG

    That export profile probably had more to do with Trump’s rise than not, but perhaps in a different way:

  • MrWorldCitizen1

    The more they try to bash Trump, the more they prove him right and make him more popular. These people still don’t get it. The establishment has been spending so many years doing what they want to do, instead of what the people that elect them want them to do, that they have gone blind and ignorant if they cannot understand Trump’s popularity.

    I don’t think these reactions are about anything except the possibility that the US Government will no longer be for sale. World leaders have been spitting on our handouts for decades while getting rich off our business ‘accommodations’ (that’s globalists call bribes). All the while exploiting our poor and theirs. If you want to know how much globalists will spend to elect anyone but trump, just look at how much they spend lobbying (bribing) the establishment…

    More than $3,210,000,000 in 2015! That is more than 15x what they spent to get Jeb bush elected.
