Bishop Fulton Sheen tweeted, “As Religion fades, so will freedom.” His observation that religious conviction and the moral conduct it promotes is both integral and essential to free society echoes that of founder/framer John Adams who observed in 1798, “Our...
Failure In The Midst of Success
Has it escaped everyone’s attention that the RINO #NeverTrumpers, when expounding their learned views on social media sites like Facebook, go out of their way to insult conservative, pro-Trump supporters as really unimportant to the big picture⏤but do so with condescending joy?
Bill Kristol is the most prominent elitist in the bunch. As the threat of Trump’s ascendency in the 2016 election rose and it became increasingly clear Trump could actually take the GOP nomination, Kristol set about his holy mission to knock the wheels off the Trump bus, disparage Trump as a bull in a China Shop and warn any Washington DC based journalist who dared write or say a good word, of the consequences of their heresy. Kristol’s Weekly Standard Review magazine soon headed for the toilet until it’s now only a memory.
The magazines weakness was that while it gained instant recognition in Gingrich’s revolution, it remained true to “neoconservative” principles, whatever they were, while unequivocally praising candidates like John McCain, who the conservative base distrusted. In doing so the Standard failed to recognize the changing value of politics and change with it. Later, clinging to Romney didn’t do them any good either. To lose influence when once you were the great Vizir, is to die the death of a thousand cuts. In a huff of frustration, Kristol angrily turned Democrat.
On his frequent sit down broadcasts interviewing other enlightened neoconservative political pundents, Kristol’s haughty position assumed that he was always right and that the vast but silent pool of great unwashed conservative voters were actually near illiterate Neanderthals who should serve no better purpose than to keep their educated betters in positions of power and keep that Bull out of the China Shop. It didn’t happen.
Along came Donald ‘Bull’ Trump and readers of the Weekly Review or Standard were realizing that Donald Trump was a God-sent despite his human normalcies, and they didn’t care. This was a political hurricane blowing and it blew Bill Kristol and his magazine into history. It didn’t help either that the magazines main funder, billionaire Phillip Anschutz, saw his profits drop and defunded the enterprise. This was a failure in the midst of success.
But, we’re still bedeviled by these, can we call them a cult of NeverTrumpers? They always try to claim the high ground of self-actualized political excellence. But how can one be excellent if nobody’s listening or reading?
Every day, Donald Trump takes the high ground with his tweets on his Right-hand defending himself and his policies, while stimulating the economy with his Left-hand git’er done policies.
They don’t see. If they do, they don’t know how to handle him.
They have steeped themselves in the belief, and caution conservative politicians to act in a Presidential manner, don’t fight back but “turn the other cheek,” get along with the Progressives and sooner or later that party will fail. That didn’t work for George H. W. Bush, it didn’t work for George W. Bush, and it certainly didn’t take hold with Donald J. Trump.
Advise givers are a dime a dozen. The 2016 election proved that most conclusively and still the same old neoconservatives are trotted out by the networks at election time to pontificate on 2020. But, not Bill Kristol. Karl Rove is there, Newt Gingrich, who saw in Trump what he had been fighting for for decades was able to sweep away concerns about Trump not being presidential when Trump was being successful.
The punditry Class are the real Neanderthals in today’s fast changing politics in a faster changing Washington DC.
The Swamp is being drained!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em!
