The thing is that I do not see Trump as a Republican, the two parties DO NOT WANT Trump period. So the establishment elites like anyone but Trump because they say he is unfit, raciest, and so on. I believe that they do not want to lose there control. The two parties are really one party with the same goals to control us all one way or another.
“The primary purposes for which the SHTF Forum was created are now all that matter, from a purely temporal standpoint.” I agree but the political part is why we are in the point of an economical collapse by there design. This is the way they take more and more control by collapse of the economy and purchasing on the cheap or taking of the properties of others. The dark state is true and they do work together as one party but Trump is not working with them and that is why they want him to lose at all cost.
