EPISODE 72: Part 1: The Red Thread: Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy with Diana West and Frank Gaffney
The anti-Trump conspiracy is not about Democrats versus Republicans. It’s not about the ebb and flow of political power lawfully and peacefully transferred. It is about globalists versus nationalists, and they’re locked in the old and continuous Communist versus anti-Communist struggle, and fighting to the end whether we, the anti-Communists, recognize it or not.
So writes, Diana West, the award-winning author of “The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy” one of my guests on this week’s show.
It’s a stark claim. And it demands that we look at the Trump impeachment in a whole new light, as part of a century long conflict to take America away from its constitutional roots, and towards globalism. Donald Trump is an enormous threat to this agenda. In this sense, he’s a counter-revolutionary, seeking to protect the American nation from its globalist enemies, enemies not just from without, but from within. As Frank Gaffney, founder of the Center for Security Policy, and my other guest explains, “What I’m basically saying is that whichever of the isms we decide to label to this particular phase, we’re dealing with basically totalitarianism, and the totalitarians have as part of their trade craft operating subversively.”
What’s astonishing today is that this agenda is now operating right out in the open with Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, the “squad”, and most of the Democratic Party’s Presidential candidates.
This war didn’t start with Donald Trump. Diana and Frank share incredible stories of a century long struggle with our “enemy within.” Some samples: How William Wirt was the first American to be essentially destroyed by the media, for trying to tell the country about the revolutionary nature of the New Dealers. What was behind the recognition of the USSR in 1933. How the culture wars began in Hollywood in the 30s where stories of Soviet atrocities were kept off the silver screen.
How Harry Hopkins engineered the covert sale of uranium to the Soviets Why Joe McCarthy had to be destroyed. How “two foundations of globalism, the United Nations and the IMF, these were actually brought into existence by two Soviet agents working inside, covertly, the United States government, Harry Dexter White and Alger Hiss.”
Bringing this all up to today (starting at minute 38:45 through 45:30), is the influence of Reinhold Niebuhr, the man that James Comey, “to this day, honors as his deepest influence on his own theory of justice.” We learn that Niebuhr’s notion of justice included “no right and no wrong. There are no moral absolutes.” Comey has written, paraphrasing Niebuhr, that “the Christian in politics must be willing to transgress any purely Christian ethic. He must be willing to sin in the name of justice.”
These are chilling stories. What we’re seeing now is not about “the ebb and flow of political power lawfully and peacefully transferred.” Instead, it’s about a coup, a coup being staged all around Washington in various venues, and now in the Congress. Our century long struggle continues.
We’re inundated with reports from media, governments, think tanks, and “experts” saying that our climate is changing for the worse, and that it is our fault because of man-made CO2 emissions. But despite apocalyptic predictions about climate, our earth, the planet is improving.Watch Now

Episode 253: Growth, Innovation and Human Flourishing on an Infinitely Bountiful Planet w/Marian Tupy
You can’t fix what is wrong in the world if you don’t know what’s actually happening.
Polls show that most smart people tend to believe that the state of the world is getting worse. In the United States, almost 3/4 of Americans believe the world is getting worse and only 6% think it’s getting better.
But according to Marian Tupy, our guest on this episode, “this dark view of the prospects for humanity, and the natural world is, in large part, badly mistaken.”Watch Now
