Nobody Remembers the FIRST Trump: Manlius of Rome

Nobody Remembers

The attacks on President Trump get worse with every passing hour. It’s hard to believe the hatred for a man who has done such a great job in his first term, could be filled with such pure partisan divide.

There is a purposeful division lead by the rich ‘deep’ state globalists, who are out to get rid of him whatever it takes.

But…the people love him.

Clearly, the oligarchy who now seems to have themselves entranced on the world stage of power, want BACK in power, and are out to do anything to get it.

Leave it to one of our founders who studied history, to remind us all, what happens when an aristocracy wants to get rid of a man picked “by the people.”

In the book, In Defense of the Constitution of the Governments of the United States, written by John Adams, something I bet even Mark Levine has not read, I was astonished to learn of an almost EXACT parallel in ancient history, of what is happening now in our political farce, and the damage they are trying to inflict on President Trump.

This exact same scenario happened long ago in Rome, and the man the “deep state” of Rome prosecuted was a very popular man of the people named Manlius. He was a beloved hero of the people. He had defeated the Gaul’s at the gates of the city of Rome, and the people loved him dearly for his leadership and bravery, for he knew how draconian they were being treated, and he wanted more of the riches to go to them. He wanted their lives to be better.

They wanted him to rule.

Manlius was the rival of Camillus who had the support of the rich in the Senate.

Adams: “He was, in fact and effect, to all intents and purposes, king in Rome, without the name but under the various titles of consul, dictator, or military tribune.

Manlius didn’t like him, “He treats, even those created with powers equal to his own, not as his colleagues, but officers and substitutes to execute his orders.”

The big elites said Manlius was just jealous. No, he wasn’t, but he was right.

Adams: “This is the nature of an aristocratical assembly as well as of a democratically one. Some eminent spirit, assisted by three or four families connected with him, gains an ascendency, and excites an enthusiasm, and the spirt and letter too of the constitution is mace to give way to him “

The aristocratical historians must brand the character of Manlius in order to depress the people, and extol and adore that of Camillus in order to elevate the senate and the nobles. (Comey?)
The truth is, an aristocratical despotism then ruled in Rome, and oppressed the people to a cruel decreed: and one is tempted to say that

Manlius was a better man than Camillus.

There were two parties, one of the nobles, and another of the people: Manlius, from superior humanity and equity, embraced the weaker.

Camillus protected the Senate.

Manlius advanced with the people: on one side was the senate with their clients, and Camillus at their head: and on the other, the people, headed by Manlius: and each party ready for battle at the word of command. And such a war will, sooner or later, be kindled in every state, where the two parties of poor and rich, patricians and plebeians, nobles and commons, senate and people, call they by what names you will, have not a third power, in an independent executive, to intervene, moderate, and balance them.”

So, what did they do? They trumped up some bogus crime (As they did with Trump) and arrested him.

Adams: “The people were deeply affected: but the authority was thought to be legal, and the Romans had prescribed bounds to themselves, through which they dared not break. The authority of the dictator and senate held them in such respect, that neither the tribunes nor the pole ventured to raise their eyes or open their mouths. BUT they put on mourning.

….and they were royally pissed.

Adams: “To soften the people, the senate became generous all at once, ordered a colony of two thousand citizens to be sent out, assigning teach of them two acres and a half of land. Though this was a largess, it was confined to too small a number. The people passed whole nights round the prison, and threatened to break down the gates. The senate set Manlius at liberty to prevent the people from doing it.
Manilus spoke to the people:

Adams: “How long will you be ignorant of your own strength? Count your numbers and that of your adversaries: show them war, and you will have peace. Why are you so courageous against your enemies abroad, and so soft and timorous in defense of your liberty at home?”

To speak candidly there was a rivalry between the Manlian and the Quinctian families, and the struggle was, which should be the first family and who the first man. And such a struggle exists, not only in every empire, monarchy, republic, but in every city, town, and village in the world.

The Romans had hated the thought of another “king.” So, the senate were now able to set up the popular cry, that Manlius aspired to the throne: this revived all the religious horror which their established execrations had made an habitual part of their natures, and turned an ignorant, superstitious populace against the best friend and the only friend they had in the republic.

The senate first talked of assassination and another Ahala: but, to be very gentle they ordered, “the magistrates to take care that the commonwealth sustained no prejudice from the pernicious design of Manlius. This was worse than private assassination: it was an assassination by the senate. It was judgement, sentence, and execution, without trial.”

“Manlius could not be openly attacked, without interesting the people in his defeat: that violent measures would exact a civil war: that it was necessary to separate the interest of Manlius from those of the people. They themselves would cite him before the tribunal of the people and accuse him in form. Nothing said the tribunes, is less agreeable to the people than a king. As soon as the multitude sees that your aim is not against them, that from protectors they are become judges: that their tribunes are the accusers, and that a patrician is accused for having aspired at the tyranny, no interest will be so dear to them as that of their liberty. Their liberty! The liberty of plebeians at that time. What a prostitution of scared terms. Yet, gross as was this artifice, it laid fast hold of those blind prejudices which patrician and aristocrats had inspired, and duped effectually a stupid populace.” 

Nancy Pelosi does this every day: She claims it’s “the people” calling for justice. SHE is “the people.” Do we not have millions of our own population being duped by the liberals trying desperately to hide their own crimes?

By the way….

What happened to Manlius?

Tune in tomorrow to find out.
