Many people have been taken aback by the seemingly endless amounts of ”Executive Orders” and major new policies being implemented by Donald Trump in such a short period of time. No sooner has one order been given than another appears, and then another. Discussion of one policy, for example the wall, begins to hit the headlines and social media, only hours later, or perhaps a day later, to be succeeded by something else, for example the ”Muslim Ban” or a 5 year ban on lobbying. It’s all rather bewildering, even to people who’re delighted by what Trump is doing.
But is there method to it? is driving so many ”controversial” policies through in such a short period of time itself part of larger tactic? and if so what is its purpose?
Pondering this over the last week or so I started to see certain similarities between Trump’s announcements and the manner in which his enemies, the liberal press, media and political establishment, were constantly left reeling and playing a game of ”catch-up”. It seemed as if Trump was engaged in Blitzkrieg warfare against his enemies. Now, I have a suspicion many people reading this will be well aware of what Blitzkrieg is as a method of warfare, but nevertheless, let’s take a look the Wikipedia explanation:
Blitzkrieg (German, “lightning war” is a method of warfare whereby an attacking force, spearheaded by a dense concentration of armoured and motorised or mechanised infantry formations with close air support, breaks through the opponent’s line of defence by short, fast, powerful attacks and then dislocates the defenders, using speed and surprise to encircle them. Through the employment of combined arms in manoeuvre warfare, blitzkrieg attempts to unbalance the enemy by making it difficult for it to respond to the continuously changing front and defeating it in a decisive Vernichtungsschlacht (“battle of annihilation”)”
The term had appeared in 1935, in a German military periodical Deutsche Wehr (“German Defense”), in connection to quick or lightning warfare. German manoeuvre operations were successful in the campaigns of 1939–1941 and by 1940 the term blitzkrieg was extensively used in Western media. Blitzkrieg operations capitalized on surprise penetrations (e.g., the penetration of the Ardennes forest region), general enemy unreadiness and their inability to match the pace of the German attack. During the Battle of France, the French made attempts to re-form defensive lines along rivers but were frustrated when German forces arrived first and pressed on.
Donald Trump is keenly aware that his policies are going to be savaged by hysterical liberals in the lugenpresse, so he appears to be moving forward with his policies as fast as possible so his opponents are unable to form a coherent counter narrative because another policy will be dropped before they do.
Let’s just take a moment to explore what would happen if Trump were to make a policy announcement, his wall, for example, and then not make any other announcements or issue any other Executive Orders for a week. The legacy media and liberal political class would be able to deploy their full strength against the policy, the editorials would be churned out for days, the TV screens would be awash with ”Libshits” pulling Trump’s plans apart. Both Trump and his supporters would then be in a position of reacting to the lugenpresse and defending their ground. In other words, the issue would become entrenched, and trench warfare is by it’s very nature far more wasteful and time consuming with a less certain outcome in terms of public opinion.
Remember the ”Women’s March” when feminists from across the West dressed up as tampons and wandered around in the rain all day? only just, but that was only a week ago. The abortion issue which set them off has been buried under other announcements, and more ”controversial” policies which have themselves been superseded by yet more policies.
All of this has had the effect of sending the MSM and liberal classes into state of nigh on chaos, complete disarray as they try and push one narrative into the public consciousness only to be hit from another front, and then another, and always before they can get their most powerful batteries into the field of public discourse.
Blitzkrieg is not infallible, however:
Blitzkrieg is vulnerable to an enemy that is robust enough to weather the shock of the attack and that does not panic at the idea of enemy formations in its rear area. This is especially true if the attacking formation lacks the reserve to keep funnelling forces into the spearhead, or lacks the mobility to provide infantry, artillery and supplies into the attack. If the defender can hold the shoulders of the breach they will have the opportunity to counter-attack into the flank of the attacker, potentially cutting off the van as happened to Kampfgruppe Peiper in the Ardennes.
And so in my analogy here, Trump is the spearhead, the danger is that the liberal classes, Jews and leftists etc, are able to absorb and then reorganize themselves and seem more credible before the eyes of the public than Trump or his support base. In other words, the alternative media, Alt-Right, White Nationalists, Civic Nationalists and anti-Globalists of various hues, have something of a duty to act as infantry and artillery to Trump’s spearhead, obviously this is not say we must shill for Israel if they pull an Iran war out of the bag, but there are very few people in Nationalist circles complaining about what we’ve had from Trump so far.
As I write there’s a petition afoot in Britain attempting to have Trump banned from making state visits. This is their counter attack taking shape, isolate Trump from his support and present him to the world as a madman who’s hijacked the White House.
Trump must be seen to be legitimate, his support must be maintained, and it’s people in the alternative media, whether on a blog or YouTube channel or Twitter etc, who have a key role maintaining and expanding upon that support.
