In The Seventh Bowl Poured Out, I mentioned that the Brexit vote in June 2016 was an indicator of the first repudiation of globalism.
I also said,
“The Wikileaks docs implicate both the Republican and Democratic administrations, revealing that the Roman system has been entrenched no matter which party is in office. I find it very interesting that the current frontrunner for President in this election cycle is a political outsider, Donald Trump, at war with the elites of both parties.”
Since then, Donald Trump has been elected the 45th president of the United States. This is another repudiation of globalism. He ran as a Republican, but why did so many elite Republicans repudiate him? He is not a globalist as they are. He wore the skin of the Republican party as a vehicle to be a contender on the ballot, but he is not in their club. His vote total was the largest vote total for a Republican candidate since Reagan, but contrary to what you read in the fake news, it was not white nationalists who put him over the top. The crossover vote for Trump from the traditionally Democratic base of minorities, LBGT, even Union workers in the rust belt, was large. Most of that support did not come because of a sudden change of heart on social issues, either, but because of national security issues and the economy. So, nationalism, not globalism. Nationalism is not bad, rather it is the design of God for the kingdoms of the earth since the Tower of Babel dispersion, the rejection of the first globalist movement in history!
But Mr. Trump’s victory has since fueled the popularity of nationalist candidates in Europe and elsewhere:
Austria: Norbert Hofer (election: Dec. 5)
Hofer, 45, lost out in May by just 31,000 votes to pro-Europe candidate van der Bellen, 72. But Austria’s highest court annulled the vote, finding that sloppiness in the count, while not intended to manipulate any votes, had potentially been serious enough to change the outcome. If successful, he would be the first far-right head of state in a European Union country.
France: Marine Le Pen (election, first round: Apr. 23, 2017)
“They have acted like carnivores,” she said about “elites” challenged by both Trump and France’s National Front. “[They have] used the world to enrich only themselves, and whether it’s the election of Donald Trump, or Brexit, the elites have realized that the people have stopped listening to them, that the people want to determine their futures and in a perfectly democratic framework, regain control of their destiny.” She concludes: “And that panics them, because they are losing the power that they had given themselves.”
Italy: Matteo Salvini (election: 2018)
In just over two years, Italy’s Northern League party has experienced remarkable growth, thanks in large part to the mounting Italian migrant crisis. The League bounced back from an all-time low of just 4% in the 2013 elections to 16-17% support in recent polls. Last February, Salvini teamed up with French National Front leader Marine Le Pen and other leaders of right-wing parties and Euro-skeptics at a convention organized in Milan by the Northern league. At the meeting, Salvini stressed the need to “recover sovereignty and powers from the EU …”
