Political outsider Donald Trump could easily win the presidency given that 2016 is a year of cataclysmic change in human history, with the Chicago Cubs winning their first World Series in 108 years and British voters rejecting their vassalage to the EU.
Few mainstream sports writers expected the Cubs to win after they fell into a 3-1 deficit during the World Series, yet despite having their backs against the wall, the Cubs won the final two games on the road, the first team to do so since the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates.
How the Cubs won was nearly as sensational as their drought: the last time the Cubs won a World Series, the Ottoman Empire still existed, New Mexico wasn’t even a state and the RMS Titanic hadn’t been built yet.
But the Cubs victory follows another unprecedented event of 2016: Brexit.
No one expected the UK to successfully vote its way out of the EU given the EU’s decades-long history of stopping countries from leaving the “union.”
However, thanks to Nigel Farage and his UK Independence Party, British voters in favor of Brexit finally won both the vote and public opinion, the latter of which was arguably the most critical.
“Brexit is the first strike-back against this phenomenon of the big banks, the big businesses, effectively owning politics, willfully destroying nation-state democracy, getting rid of that thing our forbearers actually fought and shed their blood to create and to preserve our liberties and our freedoms,” Farage said on the Alex Jones Show. “All of that being taken away and suddenly in a referendum that no one said we could win, and we’ve done it.”
“What we’ve done is given inspiration to freedom fighters right across the Western World.”
This inspiration has already fueled Trump’s campaign as millions of Americans find themselves in similar circumstances to their British counterparts: increasingly powerless to a predatory, globalist elite who are dismantling America’s economic and national sovereignty.
For the elite to rule the world, they must first destroy national sovereignty and consolidate real power away from public view – while controlling the country’s leaders who merely appear to hold power.
But their control is fading as millions of Americans reject their facade promoted by the establishment media and instead choose Trump as their man in the arena fighting the onslaught of globalist domination.
2016 is a year of seismic shifts, with Cubs fans – and populist voters – realizing that the limits of defeat – and of tyrants – are only defined by the endurance of the winless and the oppressed.
