Writing in The American Conservative, Pat Buchanan says 2019 will be the “war of all against all.” As the establishment, embodied by former presidents Bush, Clinton and Obama, uses every ounce of its power to oust President Trump from office in an effort at domestic “regime change,” Pat wonders “How many more of these coups d’etat can the Republic sustain before a new generation says enough of all this?” He writes:
The campaign to overturn the 2016 election and bring down President Trump shifted into high gear this week.
Inspiration came Saturday morning from the altar of the National Cathedral where our establishment came to pay homage to John McCain.
Gathered there were all the presidents from 1993 to 2017—Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama—along with Vice Presidents Al Gore and Dick Cheney; Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Henry Kissinger; the leaders of both houses of Congress; and too many generals and admirals to list.
Striding to the pulpit, Obama delivered a searing indictment of the man undoing his legacy.
What is afoot here is something America specializes in—regime change. Only the regime our establishment and media mean to change is the government of the United States. What is afoot is the overthrow of America’s democratically elected head of state.
No one suggests Richard Nixon was without sin in trying to cover up the Watergate break-in. But no one should delude himself into believing that the overthrow of that president, not two years after he won the greatest landslide in U.S. history, was not an act of vengeance by a hate-filled city for offenses it had covered up or brushed under the rug in the Roosevelt, Kennedy, and Johnson years.
So where are we headed?
If November’s elections produce, as many have predicted, a Democratic House, there will be more investigations of President Trump than any man charged with running the U.S. government may be able to manage.
If Trump has the stamina to hold on, and the Senate remains Republican, he may survive, even as Democrats divide between a rising militant socialist left and a septuagenarian caucus led by Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry, and Nancy Pelosi.
(The year) 2019 looks to be the year of bellum omnium contra omnes, the war of all against all.
How many more of these coups d’etat can the Republic sustain before a new generation says enough of all this?
