Establishment Republicans have always been proponents of the fallacy of nation building overseas. This was their vision for Iraq and Afghanistan. This is also why they praised the bogus Arab Spring. They had this warped view that if America just removed the one obstacle to self-governance from the people of these nations, that being a Dictator or Theocrat, the rest would fall in line and take care of itself.

We see how well that worked. Many of us also foretold the disaster.

Well, the Arab Spring sounds quite like the Republican Spring. For years we heard the same old tired song from the GOP. Just remove this one obstacle – give us the House of Representatives so that we may govern on behalf of you, the People It all starts in Congress – Republicans would then control the purse-strings. The rest will fall in line and take care of itself. We did that.

Then they said that we in Congress are trying, but are being blocked by that low-down Harry Reid and the Democrats. Just remove this one obstacle – give us the Senate so that we may govern on behalf of you, the People. They would then control all legislation. The rest will fall in line and take care of itself. We did that.

Then they said that we in Congress are trying. We send bills to the Senate. They pass, but are being vetoed by that low-down President Obama. Just remove this one obstacle – give us the Presidency so that we may govern on behalf of you, the People. There would be no stopping us then. The rest will fall in line and take care of itself. We did that.

Mark Steyn implied this very thing on Friday when he appeared on Stuart Varney’s Fox Business program. He said that many think it was “unreasonable to expect the Afghans and Iraqis to get the feel of self-government, when the Republican Party have control of all three branches of government and can’t do a thing.” He added that, “I think the Congressional GOP is sending a very dangerous message here. They’re basically telling their voters – elections don’t matter, and no matter what you vote for, nothing changes. They’re not doing what they’re meant to be doing.”

Mark has a great point, but I’ll go a step further. The establishment wing of the Republican Party pushed for a President of like mind, but didn’t get the guy they wanted. They didn’t get a guy who would maintain the Washington status quo. They didn’t get Jeb or Kasich or some other marshmallow. And they weren’t going to. It was going to be Trump or Cruz. They hated both.

Now it appears, as Steyn says, we are finally seeing the establishment end game. Regardless of Party, Washington isn’t interested in self-governance and is determined to maintain their centralized status quo.

Many, me included, believe that the Republicans want no more that Americans self-govern than do the Democrats, or the Islamists and Dictators of the Middle East. So rather than pushing and fighting for the Trump agenda, they’ve allowed what I now believe are their Democrat allies to run point, as it were.

Democrats cry foul. They make seemingly baseless and hyperbolic accusations about Trump and his associates and Republicans seem all too quick to acquiesce to their demands, allowing everything else to grind to a halt.

Nothing, or very little, of the Trump agenda can be furthered while these “legislators” are busy playing judge, jury and executioner. As Kurt Schlichter at Townhall describes:

“This is a coup against us…to ensure that we never again have the ability to disrupt the bipartisan D.C. cabal’s permanent supremacy by inserting a chief executive who refuses to kiss their collective Reid. This is a concentrated, coordinated effort by elite insiders to take down not this president – Trump’s not the point here – but to take down us, the normal American they seek to rule.”

Those are some sage words, and he’s absolutely right. We’ve always known this of the Democrats, but it appears that establishment Republicans are finally showing us their true colors, and those colors are hideous.

The establishment may not have hatched this coup, but they signed on rather quickly as willing accomplices, which to me is just as bad.

  1. And this is exactly why the Framers wrote the second clause of Article V into the Constitution. We either grow a pair and use it to call a convention of states, or we are finished. The experiment will have failed. Wake up people, quickly.

  2. I am a simple American Patriot who truly loves our “Beautiful City on the Hill”, our Constitution, Bill of Rights, the Rule of Law and Freedom of the Individual. I am a Native born Texan, one of five brothers who served our nation as Marine Corps volunteers as each came of age. I earned a BS degree in Animal Science from Texas A & M. I turned 83 on 26 December 2016. This brief introduction is given to set the stage for a few life time observations as to how our society has come to stand at the abys of “self destruction”. As a nation of truly “free people” our founding fathers created out of whole cloth our Constitution which in my humble opinion stands second to our Christian Bible as a blue print for a nation of free people to become all that they may be by simply developing their own God given talents. As nation states go, these United States of America stand unique in the world for achieving in a few short years (240 +) as a beacon of hope and opportunity unappalled in the history of man.

    Unfortunately for our nation and the world the destructive force of absolute political power of men over men is being demonstrated by the professional politicians and their fellow travelers who reside and work within the DC Beltway. Party affiliation plays second fiddle when this “Corrupt two party self anointed two party systems of self corruptors “feel” threatened from without, they join in lock step to protect their long fought for “absolute power over their fellow men.” The longest running corruptors of political power as demonstrated by Bill and Hillary Clinton of Hope, Arkansas has no parallel. Their record of self serving amoral life style of Bills sexual predator attacks on any “woman of interest” was made possible by his champion “Hillary” who dutifully headed up what they called “The Bimbo Eruption Squad,” to do her best to literally destroy any female who stepped forward to dare charge Bill for his unwanted advances. So much for her claim of Champion for Women Rights. Don Tyson advised Hillary how to turn $10,000.00 cattle futures trade into a cool $100,000.00 profit. McDougal and White Water, land investment gone sour. Vincent Foster strange death in DC Park. Body found, thumb in trigger guard ruled a suicide. Fast forward, Clinton Foundation turned into a cash cow for Bills speaking engagements. Cap Stone, Bill and Hillary received millions from Russian interest for aiding them to obtain 20% of our nations uranium reserves a treasonous act. Hillary’s second national disaster; Benghazi murders Chris Stevens and three defenders. On top of these events our nation and its citizens were fed a Constitutional ineligible candidate for president by the democratic party simply because the false god of “political correctness” dictated it was time to elect our nations first black man. This candidate turned out to be a walking, talking disaster. Set stage for rise of radical terrorist Muslims around the world. Caved big time and gave billions to Iran plus continued nuclear research leading eventually becoming a nuclear power. Obama care a national health care disaster. Set stage with AG Loretta Lynch and Bill Clintons help along with FBI Director Comey to cover up any and all of Secretary of State Hillary’s violations failing to protect our nations classified documents. Closing days of his presidency his network of federal employees leaking disingenuous information supporting the Russian election interference charges to favor Donald J. Trump.

    The election of Donald J. Trump and his pledge if elected to “drain the DC Swamp” has the undivided attention of the entire inside the DC Beltway elitists, business men, bankers, stock brokers, power brokers, K Street lobby interest, professional politicians both parties all lumped together as “The DC Beltway All Time to the Victor Belongs the Spoils Corruptors of Corruptors’. YES, DC has two distinctions, its our nations Capitol and its our Nation were CORRUPTION is KING. lee1233
