Unlike black leather masked communist Antifa totalitarians and their left-wing and liberal enablers, Donald Trump is the first anti-fascist president. He has already rescinded many of the executive orders that were issued by President Barack Obama who bypassed Congress, the representatives of the people, and who thus accelerated the fascistic trend of recent presidents who likewise tended to govern more like monarchs or, it could be argued, fascist dictators.
Bill Clinton advisor Paul Begala once described this fascistic trend to The New York Times, July 5, 1998, when, referring to executive orders he said: "Stroke of the pen. Law of the Land. Kinda cool."
Barack Obama famously told his cabinet: "I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone – and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward." Obama created laws out of thin air, such as DACA, while ignoring laws that he didn’t like such as border enforcement. Obama appointed judges with the same authoritarian orientation.
President Trump is returning immigration policy to its rightful constitutional source, the people’s representatives in Congress. He is asking Congress to assume its rightful constitutional responsibility to legislate in areas of immigration, healthcare, and taxes. As president, he will then have the prerogative to either sign or veto those laws. If a veto is issued, Congress can attempt to over-ride the veto. This is how the system of checks and balances works and, indeed, this is why America is not fascist.
Increasing numbers of Americans, particularly college students, have either forgotten or probably never learned how America works, how our government holds limited powers which leaves maximum power at its source, with the individual citizen under God. By this means, the minority is protected from the mob and the most vulnerable minority is the individual. In his inaugural address President Trump made his intention clear:
"We are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People. For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost."
Trump is trying to drain the swamp of the truly fascistic authoritarians, bureaucrats who make laws which they euphemistically call other names such as guidelines. These unelected and unaccountable mandarins remain in power regardless of who is elected. They are the so-called dark state and they represent an incremental slide toward a European style Fascism that was rejected when the founders declared independence from the tyrant King George III.
Trump is standing up to political correctness, the great cultural weapon in the fascist arsenal. He is knocking those grenades out of the hands of the left who, enabled by their media allies, can destroy their effectiveness of their enemies with bully boy tactics, by calling them names like “racist.” It is they, in fact, who are race obsessed as they push the same destructive racist ideas and policies that they have been peddling since the 1960’s. President Trump is pulling their masks off by supporting pro-business policies such as tax cuts and slashing onerous regulations. Trump opposes endless foreign wars, he favors trade agreements that benefit American industry and labor, he is removing the blank check from foreign nations, he supports measures that reduce the corrupt aspects of the fascistic nanny-state.
Trump is the first businessman to be elected president in a nation that is primarily made up of businessmen. As such, he is the antithesis of the fascist who seeks government control over business. An essential difference between Fascism and Communism, which are both leftist political experiments in mass control, is that Fascism offers monopoly power to select businesses who become governing partners while the Communist system constitutes a singular and massive state-run corporation that controls everything. Fascism views society through the collectivist lens of race and group identity while Communism focuses on the collectivism of class identity. Thus, Fascism promotes race consciousness and Communism promotes class consciousness. The American system is the exact opposite in that America promotes individual consciousness and empowerment. Donald Trump epitomizes this principle.
