Trump’s Attacks on DeSantis Are Insane
By Cliff Kincaid
Attempting to define our problem as a nation, President Trump was right on target, telling Greg Kelly of Newsmax, “There's a little group, a small group of people that are very smart, very radical left, probably Marxists, and they're running our country into the ground and they're using law enforcement and they're using the DOJ and the FBI as retribution -- something that has never happened anywhere near what's going on right now.”
He added, “This is Marxism, this is communism, what they are doing.”
What is Trump’s solution? His newest book, Letters to Trump, is a collection of fan mail that sells for about $100.00, a price out of reach for the members of the working class he claims to represent.
Clearly, an expensive book of fan mail isn’t the answer. If he really wants to expose the communists, let him ask House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to launch a new House Internal Security Committee, with jurisdiction over the communist menace from within. Then staff it with experts on communism who have read and understand the Communist Manifesto.
As Trump knows, America has been infiltrated from top to bottom by communists and fellow travelers, especially in the so-called “Intelligence Community.” Obama’s CIA director John Brennan voted communist. Still, he got a job and rose through the ranks. Brennan and his 50 of his colleagues wrote a letter to get Biden elected by calling his son’s incriminating computer laptop Russian disinformation. The letter was a lie.
The signers were “intelligence professionals,” demonstrating that the problems in the Intelligence Community did not start or stop with Brennan.
I witnessed and reported on thousands of communists turning out in Washington, D.C., and other cities on March 18, to call for America’s defeat in the face of military power from Russia and China. Many of these activists, most of them young people, will get jobs in academia or government. Others will join the communist revolution in the streets.
Remember that we have entered into the socialist phase of communist revolution, as demonstrated by Biden’s decision to tap a Leninist scholar, Saule Omarova, as the Comptroller of the Currency.
The source of the problem is Marxism-Leninism, which is behind two subversive policies that are evident in the policies of the national Democratic Party – the centralization of economic and financial power in the federal government, and the destruction of the traditional family.
Calling it socialism is not sufficient.
As C. Bradley Thompson of the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism wrote, “In a remarkably short period of time, the philosophy of Karl Marx profoundly changed the course of human civilization. In fact, no system of ideas transformed the world as quickly or as comprehensively as did the philosophy of Marx -- not even the teachings of Jesus or Muhammad.”
In specific terms, the Communist Manifesto outlines two major policies for the destruction of the existing order – a “progressive” income tax on the citizens and the outright abolition of the family, leading to consolidation of power in the hands of the state.
In direct and stark language, the Communist Manifesto also mandates the “centralization of the means of communications” in the hands of the state.
With the argument over lifting the debt ceiling, we are witnessing the centralization of financial power in the hands of the federal government. Republicans want to lift the debt ceiling, in exchange for some modest cuts in the federal budget. Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s counter-proposal, the “Live, Save, Grow Act” still increases federal spending and the national debt.
Some may say that the Republicans are at least doing something. But when both sides of a debate favor more debt, it means the communists win.
With the revelations of government control over the social media platforms, we are witnessing consolidation of “the means of communications” in the hands of the federal government. Nothing the Republicans have done will stop this consolidation. Trump failed to break up the Big Tech monopolies, as he promised to do.
Meanwhile, although Leninist scholar Saule Omarova’s nomination went down to defeat, the consolidation of the banking sector is now underway.
Sadly, Trump has been reduced to selling books about his former friends, who wrote fan mail but then turned on him after he ran for office, and attacking Ron DeSantis, a good governor under attack by Disney. His attacks on DeSantis echo bogus Democratic Party talking points about Republicans seeking to cut Social Security.
Trump should join with DeSantis, not try to destroy him. Disney, which represents Cultural Marxism in America, is the enemy. And behind Cultural Marxism is the same philosophy that Trump says is controlling and destroying America today.
