10 ways how Trump will turn the globe totally upside down

Most of the focus on US President Donald Trump has been about him being a “Hitler” (the Left just loves throwing that adjective hundreds of times a day) and him being “illegitimate (despite him thrashing Hillary Clinton 304-227 in the 2016 Electoral College vote).

Protesters seem to forget that Trump is the most powerful man in the world and cannot be toppled by screaming hysterically from the rooftops 24 hours a day. Meanwhile Trump is virtually on the rampage trying to implement his totally different worldview.

The mainstream media, the Left lobby and Democrats keep hurling the word “chaos” at the Trump administration but they are the ones in total disarray. Meanwhile Trump is sticking to his gameplan.

A look at the grand changes that he is bringing in.

1. Globalization is out. Localization is in.

For decades we have been presented with the fact of globalization being inevitable and the only way forward. That’s why heads of state have been virtually shoving it down the throats of their citizens. Governments, banks, financial institutions and all manner of global organizations have totally aligned themselves to this reality.

There was some overlap in the Brexit and Trump campaigns and in a way they fed off each other. Both won in the same year and have changed the course of globalization and Europe faces disintegration. Had Hillary come to power, she would have fought against it it tooth and nail but Trump will in fact facilitate it.

Both French Marine Le Pen and Dutch Geert Wilders draw inspiration from Trump and it is certain that they will either win the upcoming elections in their countries or become the main opposition leaders. Frexit and Dexit referendums seem inevitable now.

Trump is the world’s biggest anti-globalization ambassador and the fact that he is now the most powerful man in the world will boost localization. Make America Great Again: Many countries will follow this mantra by just replacing “America” with their country.

2. Climate Change has been totally rubbished.

This was another inevitability we were presented with in the pre-Trump Age. The Left lobby calls those who do not subscribe to their climate views “deniers”, compare them to murderers and call for them to be jailed. California in fact has introduced legislation to that end.

Trump has thrown the very concept of Climate Change into the dustbin. The government website was officially changed just when Trump took over. Hardliner Scott Pruitt, who has taken the Left climate lobby head-on on numerous occasions, is now head of the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

Trump has said he wants nothing much to do with United Nations Climate Change Conference. This is a big blow to the climate lobby which has been whipping up quite a hysteria. Obama was a delight for them and Hillary would have continued with his policies, but Trump has effected a 180 degree turn.

3. Open borders are dead and dusted.

German Angela Merkel, former US President Barack Obama and Hillary saw eye to eye on the issue of immigration. In fact had Hillary come to power, she might have well tried to break Merkel’s immigration records. But Merkel is disgraced, Hillary is history and the Obama legacy is being dismantled.

The era of open borders is finally over. While Trump has been rubbished for his border wall with Mexico, many European nations are openly talking about fences to keep out immigrants. Trump. Brexit. Le Pen. Wilders. The future looks closed.

Even though a court blocked one of his executive orders, he is coming out with a slew of initiatives to check illegal immigration and crime and so the tide is already turning.

4. West Asia will see a transformation.

Both the Bushes went to war with Iraq. Both Bill Clinton and Obama seemed confused over West Asia. Trump plans a radical break from both. While almost every American supported the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Trump was one of the first prominent dissenting voices soon after. He alienated a sections of the Republican base by blasting Bush over the Iraq war.

Obama had embarked on a policy of liquidating West Asia dictators starting with Libyan Muammar Gaddafi and failing with Syria’s Bashar al-Assad. After that Obama’s West Asia policy drifted and was mired in confusion and chaos.

Trump is presented as a Hitler who will start World War 3 but if you go be speeches, then he’s totally anti-war. In fact if you can pick up one consistent obsession from all his speeches then it’s trade. He has a one-track mind on that.

Trump doesn’t believe in grand treaties or wars but getting the best trade deals for America via individual treaties with individual countries. That’s exactly his long-term vision for West Asia. He has opposed Obama’s soft stance on both Iran and Saudi Arabia, so that’s another change.

But the biggest change will be Israel. Israel has always been a friend of America and they came really close in the 1970s thanks to the Shuttle Diplomacy and the oil crisis. Obama tried his best to launch an all-out diplomatic war against Israel but Trump will reverse that. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu detests Obama and likes Trump but that doesn’t stop the American press from curiously calling Trump anti-Semitic.

5. Big Oil is back with a bang.

A few years back if you said that the Chairman of ExxonMobil would become the US Secretary of State, then you would have been laughed out of the room. But that has already happened. No amount of screaming by the Climate Change lobby can change that.

The Secretary of State is the most important person in America after the President and Rex Tillerson is big on trade and oil. It is a huge departure from the John Kerry and especially Hillary days.

After taking over, Trump immediately overturned the oil pipeline ban put in place by Obama and “Drill Baby Drill!” is back with a bang. The world has never seen the likes of the troika of Trump-Tillerson-Pruitt and the Leftist environmental lobby is powerless.

Trump is at heart a Capitalist who supports the oil industry and has the balls to carry out his vision.

6. The terminal decline of Communist intellectualism.

Communism was seen as an Utopia in 1848. It seemed internationally inevitable after the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Chinese Revolution of the late 1940s. However with the Chinese Economic Reform of 1978 and the collapse of the USSR in 1991, the whole world saw what a royal sham it was.

Leftist parties like the US Democrats, UK Labour and Indian Congress tried their best to go Left. They were fully supported by the media, Liberals, intellectuals, NGOs and the like. That regime ruled till the 2000s.

But in the 2010s they were totally busted by the troika of Modi-Brexit-Trump (the social media was a great help) and the Left has really taken a beating. While Modi has waged a silent war against the Left, Trump has gone all out.

7. The death of the media.

The Fourth Estate had virtually become the Fifth Column. They are nothing but mouthpieces of the global Left establishment. They campaigned for the Democratic party and Hillary in 2016.

The influence of the media is already over, but they are just being propped up by their advertisers. The day their advertisers desert them, they will fall like a flimsy pack of cards. The BBC is no longer respected, CNN ratings have plummeted and the New York Times is facing financial difficulties.

Now Trump is taking the media head on and openly dubbing them Fake News. He is rubbishing them in his Tweets and speeches, snubbing them in person, boycotting their events, misleading them with umpteen red herrings and excluding them from certain meetings. Trump is generally playing them at will and having a good laugh at their expense.

The media has never encountered anyone like Trump and so far is losing every major battle.

8. Taking Islamic terrorism head on.

Nobody talks of the huge elephant in the global room. The Islamic State has tens of thousands of terrorists. Pakistan has tens of thousands of terrorists. Many Islamic countries have thousands of terrorists.

The Al-Qaeda of yesterday and the Boko Haram of today have been really destructive. But many world leaders, Obama included, refused to use the term “Islamic terrorism”, something that Trump is not shying away from and using in his official speeches.

Immigrant crime has wrecked many areas of Europe, but most world leaders refuse to even acknowledge the problem let alone do anything about it. Trump does not shy away from being blunt on the issue of Islamic terrorism and though it is early days, he has vowed that his words will be backed by action.

(Read: Do you know how many million Muslims must die for War On Terror?)

9. United Nations will become irrelevant.
The League of Nations died a natural death and the United Nations was becoming more and more irrelevant. Obama tried for a big push during his term to boost it, but he wasn’t very successful. Now Trump has made it clear that he is no fan of the United Nations and is not even ready to play lip service.

America is a big financial sponsor of the UN and Trump has proposed a cut in funding. Trump has thrashed the UN’s overtly anti-Israel pro-Palestine stance and vowed to neutralize it. In fact the media is already speculating that United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is planning to go in for a virtual war with the global body.

10. The end of political correctness.

Political correctness was taken to ridiculous levels levels during the Obama years. That has produced a generation of snowflakes and people who take great offence at each and every thing. The Left hurled myriad abuses at anyone who even differed from the narrative.

Trump has thrown political correctness into the fire. He is blunt. He calls a spade a spade. He blasts his critics with his Tweets and speeches. One of the reasons why people voted for him is because they were really getting tired of political correctness. Trump may probably end up being the most politically incorrect US President of all time.

They thought he would change during the fag end of 2015. They thought he would change after getting the Republican ticket. They thought he would change after getting elected. They thought he would change after taking the oath of office.

No sir! No changes! Welcome to the Politically Incorrect Era!

8 reasons why Obama will go down as the worst President in US history

Long back (it really seems ages ago now), Barack picked up his mobile and read: President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst President in the history of the United States Exclamation Point @realDonaldTrump. Then he added: At least I will go down as a President. Then he threw down the mobile for great dramatic effect and to thunderous and rapturous applause.

It was implied that at least he would go down as a President while Trump never would. That statement has been shattered to smithereens bringing into focus the first statement which could well be true.

Here are 8 reasons why Obama may well go down as the worst President in US history…

1. Ending his term with a Republican dictatorship.

When Obama won in 2008, the Democrats were in the ascendant and many predicted a Democratic dictatorship by the end of Obama’s even then two probable terms. Well the Republicans engaged in an intense battle in the US Congress that really began with the Tea Party and one must say that they walloped him black and blue.

While Obama fanboys called it obstructionist and unfair, the people of America clearly backed the Republicans. From 2010 the Republicans marched to victory upon victory capturing all the power groups that the nation has to offer. As of time of writing this article, the Republicans lead the Democrats House of Representatives 237-193 and the Senate 52-46.

They completed a hat-trick when they captured the White House. Out of the 50 States, they also control more 30+ Governorships and State legislatures. By the time Trump is done, the Supreme Court will be more Conservative than Liberal.

When Obama took over America was headed for a Democratic dictatorship. When he left America was a Republican dictatorship. In fact the Republicans have never had such a stranglehold since their foundation in 1854 and for that America has to thank Obama.

A monopoly of any one party is not good for any country and Obama will continue to meddle in US politics as everyone else in the Democratic party has been reduced to a dwarf status. A survey claimed that Obama officially become the first US President to lose more than 1000 political seats during his term for any party.

2. Leaving West Asia in total ruins.

West Asia is the cornerstone of any US Presidency. Many consider Jimmy Carter as the worst Democratic President in recent history but even he brought peace with the Camp David accords between Israel and Egypt.

Nobody really knows what Obama’s West Asia policy was. Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was assassinated and the country is still in limbo. Iran was allowed to continue with its nuclear programme till it almost got there and they were paid tonnes of money for god knows what.

The Iraq crisis was made worse, the Syrian war raged on and Obama looked the other way while Islamic State flourished. Saudi Arabia joined in the war party and blasted Yemen to smithereens.

Stable Turkey went rogue diplomatically and Trump will now face a dangerous Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Thanks to all that Russian President Vladimir Putin got a foothold in West Asia and now no amount of Trump bashing can change that.

Finally and curiously, Obama launched an all out diplomatic war on Israel towards the end of his term despite the fact that, for better or worse, Israel is America’s best friend in West Asia.

3. Strengthening the ultimate surveillance state.

Obama’s predecessor George W Bush laid the foundations of the ultimate surveillance state, but it was Obama who took it to dizzying heights. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction and that’s why the information leak and hacking also was unprecedented. Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange and Wikileaks. Edward Snowden and the PRISM revelations.

The globe was horrified at the colossal scale that the Obama administration was snooping on everyone in the world. Forget American citizens, even German Chancellor Angela Merkel wasn’t safe.

The Obama administration had so much information that they built the $1.5 billion 1.5 million square feet Utah Data Center to house it. It can store data in the range of exabytes, or billions of gigabytes. 65 megawatts of power will be required in a year along with millions of litres of water a day just to keep it functional.

There were reports of giant government towers across America capturing personal data of the mobiles of unwitting citizens as they passed by but as usual the mainstream media gave a free pass to Obama and totally overlooked all his faults.

If America is bad at handling data, then certain authoritarian regimes will be even worse. It is in this light that it is perplexing why Obama handed over the control of the Internet to the United Nations. So it really came as no surprise when Trump Tweeted that Obama was snooping on him during the fag days of his Presidency.

4. Hillary. Hillary. Hillary.

Conservatives detested the Clinton years from 1993-2001. Liberals detested the Bush years from 2001-09. Obama took over amidst great hope, bipartisan support and had such tremendous goodwill that he could have begun on a clean slate.

However he surprised many when he picked Hillary as his Secretary of State bringing back the toxic Clinton years. This was surprising because they had viciously attacked each other during campaigning for US President.

Hillary masterminded the absolutely dismal West Asia policy as mentioned above and her foreign policy was a total joke. Obama claimed that his Presidency was relatively scandal free but that was incorrect. Allegations of scandals swirl around the Clintons wherever they go.

Then when he should have investigated Emailgate and other scandals, he gave Hillary a clean chit and pushed her with all his might for the presidency. He oversaw the DNC partisanly pushing for Hillary over Bernie Sanders. The electorate gave such a resounding slap to Obama-Hillary that he is yet to recover and one only wonders how the Obama presidency could have been had he broken free from the Clintons in 2009.

5. Paying merely lip service to everything.

Obama is charismatic. He is a great speaker. But that’s about it. He has no major achievements. He just talks fancy. It sounded great in 2008 and he got away in 2012 too. But in 2016 all his words sound vapid and hollow.

In terms of “initial promises, expectations and hope” compared to “final concrete results”, Obama is definitely the worst President in US history.

6. Gun violence and racial tension.

In today’s world we have to go by results and gun violence and racial tension soared in Obama’s tenure. Gun sales spiked every time Obama lectured America on gun violence as citizens would scramble to the nearest gun store. In fact his critics called him history’s greatest gun salesman.

Gun violence and deaths were up and racial tensions increased. Towards the end of his term the militant group Black Lives Matter went on the ascendant and they believe in shooting white policemen.

7. A highly divided America.

Obama’s wife Michelle went saying there was no hope in America. Well that pointed more to Obama’s failed 8 years than anything else. Obama during his presidency always took the high ground, sermonizing and delivering moral lectures non-stop totally alienating his critics and detractors and widening the divide.

Instead of staying away from the highly divisive 2016 elections, he totally backed the scandal-ridden Hillary and when she lost, he tried to sabotage the coming Trump presidency from November 8 to January 20. Sanders and Hillary supporters went on the rampage against Trump during the run up to the elections. Democratic supporters tried to instigate riots after Trump was elected. Obama merely looked on with apparent tacit approval.

Now he has overseen Tom Perez as the DNC Chairman, the man who infamously declared that white people were not entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act. Vice Chairman Keith Ellison has links with the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been declared as a terrorist organization by many countries. Ellison also blamed Jews for 9/11.

A report said that Obama diverted billions of dollars of funds to Left-wing groups. If that is true then he has to share part of the blame of Left-wing groups going on the rampage after Trump was elected President. They are still doing so.

As you can see, the divide will only increase. In fact Obama’s Attorney General recently called for more blood and death on the streets to protest Trump and the Democrats used it on their social media page as words of inspiration.

8. Trump will totally overturn the Obama legacy.

At the end of the day it depends on how history judges you and whether all your policies are taken forward or bite the dust. That way you can be sure that Trump will go all out to destroy the Obama legacy completely. In four years the Obama legacy will be dust and if Trump gets a second term then Obama will merely become a footnote in US history.

Trump has attacked Obamacare, overturned his immigration initiatives, rubbished his stand on Climate Change and cancelled his oil pipeline bans. That was just in the first few weeks of the Trump presidency.

Parting shot…

They said that Trump wasn’t serious. He was.
They said that Trump wouldn’t get the Republican ticket. He did.
They said that Trump wouldn’t be President. He is.

Now these very same people are saying that Trump will not be a great President and for that reason you can put your money behind Trump.

The following looked totally improbable in 2016 but may well be true in 2025…

Trump was a really good President, but Obama was the absolute worst!

2015-24 may well be declared the Trump Delusion Era…

At the beginning of the US Presidential primaries…
He’s not serious. He’s not serious. He’s not serious…
He’ll withdraw. He’ll withdraw. He’ll withdraw…

Towards the end of the primaries…
He can’t be nominated. He can’t be nominated. He can’t be nominated…

At the very end of the primaries…
Republican leaders will oust him. Republican leaders will oust him. Republican leaders will oust him…

When he got the ticket…
He can’t win. He can’t win. He can’t win. He can’t win. He can’t win. He can’t win. He can’t win. He can’t win. He can’t win…

When he won…
This can’t be happening. This can’t be happening. This can’t be happening…
I am dreaming. I am dreaming. I am dreaming…
It was rigged. It was rigged. It was rigged…

When they realized it had happened…
Recount will stop him. Recount will stop him. Recount will stop him…
Electoral College will stop him. Electoral College will stop him. Electoral College will stop him…
A miracle will stop him. A miracle will stop him. A miracle will stop him…

When he was sworn in…
This can’t be happening. This can’t be happening. This can’t be happening…
I am dreaming. I am dreaming. I am dreaming…

When they realized he was President…
He will be impeached. He will be impeached. He will be impeached…
He will be ousted. He will be ousted. He will be ousted…
He’ll quit in frustration. He’ll quit in frustration. He’ll quit in frustration…
Constitutional crisis. Constitutional crisis. Constitutional crisis…
Chaos. Chaos. Chaos…
Coup. Coup. Coup…
Miracle. Miracle. Miracle…
