The whole world is vibrating to the whole new ballgame of Trump Triumphant. Does he deserve his triumph ?
By all accounts he is deeply flawed in his whole character, but he is, with all his faults and despite them the candidate of forgotten America - those people whose lives and prospects have been shafted and devalued by the globalist agenda.
The deplorables have had their revenge. Hilary Clinton is history.
Once upon a time middle America now wounded and bleeding was portrayed very vividly by a brilliant graphic artist named Norman Rockwell, who did front pages for the Saturday Evening Post. This was back in the 40s and 50s when these people still had a future.
So now they want their future back. Is that surprising ?
I am a fan of Trump;'s domestic policy being a Tory - a real one - not one of the Claytons-Cameron variety.
His geo-political outlook worries me. He is tending towards isolationism. America has been the world's policeman since 1945.
Our last bout of isolationism was way back in the 1930s, but in those days we still had the British Empire to cudgel the unruly. From Pax-Britannica to Pax-Americana was a painless leap in an unforgiving world where one paramount power has always called the shots.
Nature, and geo-politics for that matter have always abhorred a vacuum.
I have no wish to live in world dominated by China and Russia whose unholy alliance might replace American hegemony. These two countries have never cherished democracy or personal freedom.
Besides I have a sentimental regard for the Anglosphere and opine only two decent things came out of World War II - the Anglo American alliance and Lili Marlene.
No. Trump needs and urgent injection of Reaganite geo-political stretch.
