For John, BLUF: Trump is the symptom. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From PJ Media—The Belmont Club, by Mr Richard Fernandez, 3 August 2019.
Here is the lede:
Anne Applebaum tells her readers in the Washington Post: "Non-Americans, be warned — there will be no return to normal after Trump."The election of President Trump, Brexit and the rise of the Socialist left in America are symptoms. The problem is an establishment that has forgotten the importance of the People, and the need for the Establishment to appear competent.
In reality, the good old days, when ISIS ruled the Middle East, Russia could invade the Ukraine, China steal the OPM data and the South China Sea and kill the entire CIA network in the Middle Kingdom that was never that good. Neither Trump nor Brexit nor the Democratic Party left-wing sprang out of thin air. They sprouted from a crisis.Until the Press and the elites figure this out there will continue to be "disruptions".
