We are two nations, maybe more

Peggy Noonan looks at the Trump victory and sees fault lines in the DC Empire:
The Trump Wars of the past 18 months do not now go away. Now it becomes the Trump Civil War, every day, with Democrats trying to get rid of him and half the country pushing back. To reduce it to the essentials: As long as Mr. Trump’s party holds the House, it will be a standoff. If the Democrats take the House, they will move to oust him.

Because we are divided. We are two nations, maybe more.

Normally a new president has someone backing him up, someone publicly behind him. Mr. Obama had the mainstream media—the big broadcast networks, big newspapers, activists and intellectuals, pundits and columnists of the left—the whole shebang. He had a unified, passionate party. Mr. Trump in comparison has almost nothing. The mainstream legacy media oppose him, even hate him, and will not let up. The columnists, thinkers and magazines of the right were mostly NeverTrump; some came reluctantly to support him. His party is split or splitting. The new president has gradations of sympathy, respect or support from exactly one cable news channel, and some websites.

He really has no one but those who voted for him.
There are indeed several nations within the quickly crumbling USA. Already there are serious secessionist movements in several states and regions, including California, Texas, and now Oklahoma. The mindless fury displayed this weekend by the far-left rioters opposed to the Trump presidency illustrates just how divided the country is. With that kind of venomous hatred against traditional America, no accommodation or compromise is possible.

It's time to recognize reality and go our separate ways. Peacefully -- while we can.

There will be no peaceful seperation as there was none in 1862. As with all Jacobins, Marxist, Bolshevics, Neocons, of the past there can be no peaceful ending. (Control through chaos.)

President Trump should use the Army while he still controls it. As with the "Bonus Army" of 1932, and the Chinese students of Tinimen Square, all will be forgotten. The little snowflakes and black lives mater survivors can take the vacancies of illegals sent to the border prisons to work on the wall.

Joseph McCarthy was right about Hollyweird from the begining.

Keep in mind, there's always globalist big money at work, creating false flags and false understandings. The fact that the entire mass media is owned by six transnational corporations, I'm sure, is of some consequence. America is looking more and more like Orwell's 1984. The old adage comes to mind: Never judge a book by its cover.

Leaders like George Soros have no more imunity from a 150 GN projectile than JFK did?

It is time for NGO's to be eliminated from the world stage.......Oligarchs are NOT nations!
