If the 2016 presidential election was one for the record books, well, as Bachman – Turner Overdrive sang, “B-B-B-baby, you ain’t seen nothing yet.” The 2018 midterms are a year away, and the road to victory is alight with a cast of characters determined to snake the drain and flush the swamp once and for all.
If you have been paying attention all along, you’ve probably sensed an uprising vibe. This is your confirmation of what is about to take place: a complete replacement of the dawdling, stonewalling, and incompetent incumbent bunch.
The Move Toward America First
Trump bulldozed his way into the Oval Office by speaking to the silent majority and energizing a massive voting base primarily located between the Rocky Mountains on the west and the Appalachian Range on the east. Political operatives keen enough to realize the Trump electoral blowout victory was not a fluke, have quietly gathered an army of Nationalists.
“This group of individuals, which some are calling “The League of Extraordinary Candidates,” is emerging nationally—a distinct slate of U.S. Senate and House candidates, as well as key gubernatorial contenders, all united in their focus on breaking the logjam in Congress.”
“We’re planning on building a broad anti-establishment coalition to replace the Republican Party of old with fresh new blood and fresh new ideas,” Andy Surabian, a senior adviser to the Great America Alliance and ex-White House aide, told Breitbart News.”
They are unapologetically plotting to replace the likes of Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Deb Fischer (R-NE), and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) – heck, every state in the country with an incumbent is on notice, strange as that might seem.
It’s a Parallax View—Google it
If McConnell and his cronies need any more evidence of the mutiny afoot, they need look no further than the special election in Alabama to replace former Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL). McConnell’s allies raised over $10 Million for an advertising campaign designed to prop up incumbent Senator Luther Strange’s bid for Sessions seat.
Trump also campaigned for Strange, but there is a drum beat on the Hill that says it was a smokescreen to appease McConnell in attempt to soften the old coot up on Trump initiatives. Strange, Moore, and Trump all appear to be just peachy with election results:
“Mr. Trump, an enormously popular figure in Alabama, cast aside the tradition of presidents treading carefully in contested primaries, as well as the warnings from his own advisers regarding a candidate trailing in the polls.”
“Yet instead of delivering a tightly crafted testimonial at a rally on Friday, the president rambled for nearly an hour and a half about a range of topics, while openly questioning whether he was making a mistake coming into the state for Mr. Strange, who oriented his entire run around Mr. Trump’s endorsement and stood looking on with a red “Make America Great Again” hat atop his head.”
Hmm. Crazy like a fox, the Donald, delivering a non-endorsement endorsement. Or he just rambled; you decide.
Oh, there’s more; after Trump tweeted an in your face public response to Senator Bob Corker’s (R-TN) private request for a presidential endorsement, Trump spitefully announced, “Senator Bob Corker “begged” me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said “NO” and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement.”
Yes, that was a petty way to knock Corker out, but it worked, so there’s that.
Taking Care of Business—Finally
The last 12-months have seen little to no movement by our snowflake-filled Congress. The Senate seems unwilling to play ball with the leader of the free world, who they deem bombastic, and in some cases, crass and unpolished. He may even be the death knell of the Grand Old Party. The silent majority woke the junkyard dog, and the entrenched are being ungracefully rooted out and sent packing for parts unknown. What we once accepted as the GOP way is now on the road to nowhere fast, leaving the door open for the good guys to take back America. And it’s about damn time.
