It's time to admit it now. Trump fought the Borg, and the Borg won. Not that he engaged the deep State skillfully or systematically. He didn't. Was it his fault? Not entirely.
Few Americans suspected exactly how systemic the rot was. Trump certainly didn't. Or else he would have responded to the Russia collusion hoax by disbanding the FBI. Then building a new agency from scratch, with lawmen from small towns in the South. Chuck Schumer warned Trump that the Deep State would have its revenge, and so it did.
Trump should have his revenge before leaving office. He should pardon Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. He should not just declassify every document that could cripple or expose the Deep State. He should demand the files in person, and hand walk them to Wikileaks. Then make sure they're safely on servers in friendly countries like Poland and Hungary.
Neither he nor we wanted to admit what now is obvious about our country. Namely, where virtually all of the power to spend our tax money, prosecute citizens, redeploy our soldiers, or pursue crucial policies lies. It lies in the hands of unelected, unfireable bureaucrats. Worse, those career employees think as a collective. They act in exquisite unison like a colony of termites. So do the leaders of massive corporations, including media and social media giants. Together they make up the Hive Mind, which sees American freedom as a rusty, embarrassing relic. Something like a segregated water fountain.
These elites are throwing tens of thousands of people off Twitter and Facebook, including Trump himself. They're conspiring to crush the alternative platform Parler, to shut it down completely, unless it starts censoring speech. Senator Josh Hawley just got his book contract canceled. Why? For daring to question election fraud. The crackdown on opposition to the Biden family takeover is coordinated and ruthless, even before his inauguration. (He learned a thing or two from the CCP while they lined the Biden, Inc. pockets.)
