Battle Lines Being Drawn – President Trump Is the Real Resistance

By Ross Powell, USDR  Contributor


This moment calls to mind Buffalo Springfield’s For What It’s  Worth.

I think it’s time we stop. Children what’s that sound? Everybody look what’s going down. There’s battle lines being drawn. Nobody’s right if everybody’s  wrong…

This time, however, for those with eyes to see and ears to hear what is happening here is perfectly clear. This is the escalation of seismic forces as cultural tectonic plates grind headlong into one another. This is the clarification of ideologies on opposite sides of the spectrum. This is the competition of worldviews that will determine the future of our nation and the world. This is the electrification of the fence of indifference and apathy. This is the confirmation of the all-in trajectory we have been careening toward for  decades.

This is  it.

We are witnessing a moment of profound historical importance that only arises perhaps once in a lifetime. We are living at a time of cyclical disruption, institutional reorganization, and intense discontent. There can be no doubt anymore that we are in the fourth turning. How we respond – both our actions and our inactions – will live with us forever. Will we live with permanent regret for our complacency in this moment because we were too shortsighted to see the significance of the battle we were  fighting?


Consider the response to President Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress. The American people are with our President. Even CNN was forced to admit that Trump’s call for action and unity was well received and in alignment with the direction the vast majority of the people want to achieve. Nonetheless, ideologues and captives of the globalist enterprise will persist in their fanatical opposition because that is all they know and all they can do. We must now realize that persona matters more than policy to them. It is thoroughly personal because they recognize that everything is on the line and President Trump is a threat to everything they have worked  for.

When you see politicians opposing everything the President says and does, particularly efforts that virtually all Americans support – the creation of good jobs, for instance – then you know that they care about opposing a man rather than fixing the problems we real people deal with every single day of our lives. While this has been exposed for the whole world to see, it shouldn’t be surprising. That’s all these people  know:

Rules for Radicals #5: Ridicule is a man’s most potent  weapon.

Rules for Radicals #8: Keep the pressure on. Never let  up.

Rules for Radicals #13: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize  it.

Alinsky’s playbook is still the same as it ever was, and the only difference is that now it is being deployed more scientifically and rapidly through technological means. When a story breaks that the Department of Justice under the previous regime had maintained a slush fund to finance left wing political activist groups, the response is clear. Whip up a frenzy of outrage and scream breathlessly for the removal of the new Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Why? Because perception matters and he is a threat. Sessions knows what has gone down and he now has the power to expose dramatic wrongdoings that most people wouldn’t believe are even  possible.

An alligator in a swamp doesn’t go down without a fight – especially when  cornered.

They have broken down all predispositions of objectivity by enabling and even commanding a heightened state of Silicon Valley censorship. They proudly organize feminist marches led by convicted terrorists. They will fund extensive protests and disruptions when the weather gets warmer. They will do anything and everything to silence the people who are fed up with their nonsense. Why? Because they are outnumbered, outgunned, and outmaneuvered in a sprint to the moral high  ground.

We the people are sick of lies, corruption, war, poverty, and oppression. We are tired of being told what to think, say, and do by sycophantic, immoral narcissists and power hungry, lunatic sociopaths. President Trump isn’t perfect, but he’s not one of them. We can tell by the seething, feverish disgust that arises when he tells the people he represents the United States of America and when his wife recites the Lord’s Prayer. He loves this country, and so do  we.

We cannot cede the field to those who would annihilate us if given the chance and deem the world a better place for it. This has happened in our cultural memory in the form of horrific purges and genocides that will rear their heads again unless we stand and act right here, right now. President Trump, our President of these United States of America, is the symbolic figurehead of the real resistance. We resist the destruction of the American dream, the annihilation of the American culture, and the enslavement of the American  people.

It is unbearable to contemplate the future we will turn over to the next generation should we remain silent and complacent in this hour. America is our home. Freedom is our creed. Trump is our  President.

Resist the enemy, and he shall flee from  us.

God bless you and God bless the United States of  America!
