Scott Adams has an interesting comment about the government leaks and media hostility to Donald Trump.

I also think we are seeing with the recent leaks the first phase of Mutually Assured Destruction of our government. The leaks will destroy Trump if they continue. But if that happens, no Democrat and no anti-Trump Republican will ever be able to govern in the future. Payback is guaranteed. The next President to sit in the White House will be leaked to the point of ineffectiveness. And that’s how the Republic dies.
A divided nation will be unhappy whoever is President.

I don't know if you'v e heard about 4th generation warfare, but a part of the theory is that non-state agents become more legitimate in the minds of the people than the state. This is not as cool as it might seem- Syria is preferable to ISIS, for instance, but the trend may continue anyway.

So the general idea (Martin Van Creveld) is we need states to start behaving themselves- and they need to work together to contain the spread of this nonsense. Russia and China are already trying, but America has this crazy foreign policy of destablizing the world- our State department even seems happy about the migrations to Europe.

The deligitimization of the state continue. Obviously, in Europe and America, the citizens don't trust the governments because the governments are obviously not acting in our best interests. The immigrants like their new stuff, but they don't trust the governments either- especially if they are Muslim. And then the second or third generation begins to feel quite alienated, and they often join up with ISIS or something because there is no such thing as integration under this scenario.

The history of D.C. being what it is, they can't help but attack Trump. The swamp doesn't get drained, the swamp drains you. They may even know that the country will become ungovernable if they don't stop, but they can't help it- they don't want their crimes uncovered. And it goes way back on both sides of the aisle. I hope Trump realizes he is in a fight for his life.
