WASHINGTON. The nation owes a debt of thanks to President Donald J. Trump. The Trump presidency has proved to be a touchstone in American politics if not the nation’s history. Tweeting away like the canary in America’s coalmine, this presidency has forced the hard left and the soft, marshmallow right to remove their masks. In doing so, they have revealed the so-called contest between right and left to be a sham.
From the left, Michelle Cottle of the New York Times reassures an ignorant American electorate not to worry. Their ill-conceived selection of Donald Trump as the nation’s 45th president is in the process of being corrected by beings possessing a singular intellect and moral superiority. Unfortunately, their names are closely guarded secrets. You see, these angelic beings reside in the murky depths of the Deep State.
“The deep state is alive and well. But it is not the sinister, antidemocratic cabal of his [President Trump’s] fever dreams. It is, rather, a collection of patriotic public servants — career diplomats, scientists, intelligence officers and others — who, from within the bowels of this corrupt and corrupting administration, have somehow remembered that their duty is to protect the interests, not of a particular leader, but of the American people.”
Question: If this cabal of “patriotic public servants” is so concerned by the corruption they see in the present administration, why not file the proper paperwork, raise the necessary funds, come out of the shadows, and run for public office?
Barring that, why not contribute funds to the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate they feel best represents their inner goodness and light?
The answer is obvious, of course. These efforts would run headlong into the same immovable brick wall: you, the deplorable voting public.
The Constitution and those damned Deplorables
In 2016, that sub-normal electorate rejected everything Hillary Clinton and her unanswerable Deep State allies believe. Namely, that untouchable “deplorables” must submit to the will of aloof, overbearing bureaucrats smugly certain of their divine right to rule.
Thomas Jefferson described this royalist mindset and its resulting actions in the Declaration of Independence.
“He [King George III] has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation.”
Today’s royally-inclined Deep State now attempts to overthrow the Trump presidency. This is their ham-fisted way of telling the American electorate, “NO, NO, NO!” But it does not constitute in any way an act of patriotism. Rather, it is an attempt by these despots to exercise veto power over “the consent of the governed.”
This reminds me of a scene from the film adaptation of the novel “Seven Days in May.” Sitting in the Oval Office, the US President confronts the leader of an impending government coup. And like the New York Times suggests of today’s Deep State minions, the film’s lead conspirator claims to personify the voice of the American people.
And so, the President asks:
“Where the hell have you heard that voice… in freight elevators, in dark alleys, in secret places in the dead of night? How did that voice seep into a locked room full of conspirators?
“That’s not where you hear the voice of the people… not in this republic.
“You want to defend the United States of America? Then defend it with the tools it supplies you with. Its Constitution.
“You ask for a mandate… from the ballot box. You don’t steal it after midnight.”
Americans can thank the Trump presidency for bringing a traitorous cabal of dictatorial bottom-feeders out from their hiding places in the murky depths of Capitol Hill’s Swamp and up to its fetid surface.
We must never, never forget that it was passage of the Patriot Act in 2001 by a dimwitted Republican majority in Congress that began America’s precipitous slide toward authoritarianism.
And speaking of dimwits boasting a big capital R after their name, we come to the most milquetoasty Republican of all, Pierre Delecto. Aka, Senator Mitt Romney. The current in-house scourge of the otherwise successful Trump presidency.
According to Slate, the freshman Senator from Utah and failed two-time candidate for president set up a fake Twitter account. Its purpose? To anonymously attack President Trump while promoting the nobility of the GOP’s soft, marshmallowy goodness. A goodness embodied by his own squishy self.
When former CNN host Soledad O’Brien attacked Romney for his “utter lack of a moral compass” for not categorically refusing to endorse Trump for president in 2020, an angry Delecto tweeted in defense of his favorite GOP senator.
“[Romney] Only Republican to hit Trump on [Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s] report, only one to hit Trump on character time and again, so Soledad, you think he’s the one without moral compass?”
Upon discovering Romney’s absurd deception, O’Brian tweeted:
“I’m still not over the fact that a guy who was close to being President of the United States felt he needed a fake Twitter account to feel empowered.”
More delectable Delecto bits
Conservative author and documentary filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza said it best:
“What kind of pathetic weasel creates a shadow Twitter account not, as he claims, to observe the political landscape but rather to PRAISE HIMSELF? Folks, I give you our very own 2012 nominee #PierreDelecto! Aka, Mitt Romney! Well, at least we know he still has one fan left.”
Romney perfectly exemplifies the creeping decay that permeates the ranks of Washington’s GOP establishment. It consists of spineless, soulless creatures who no longer view themselves as belonging to a functioning opposition party. They see their saintly purpose as that of marginally modifying the Democratic Party’s push to force-march the nation toward an unworkable socialist future… and then oblivion.
Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign slogan was clear in its meaning. America had lost its storied majesty at the hands of its corrupt, bipartisan ruling elites. Trump proclaimed it was time average citizens took control away from the nation’s politically privileged to “Make America Great Again.” And that’s what the Trump presidency has consistently attempted to accomplish. But with only occasional support from a lukewarm GOP that would rather fold than fight.
Romney and McCain: The GOP’s Terrible Twins
Mitt Romney, whose Massachusetts health care plan provided the blueprint for Obamacare, is a twice-failed presidential candidate. Trump’s “America First” message, coupled with a promise to repeal Obamacare, won the novice politician the presidency, the first public office he ever sought.
But Obamacare’s promised repeal would later fail in the US Senate due to one vote. That of the late, preeminent, Democrat-enabling Republican and presidential loser, Sen. John McCain. This spiteful, foolhardy act cost both the GOP and the Trump presidency the convincing policy win that Americans voted for and that was well within their grasp.
Sen. Mitt Romney is only the latest incarnation of that flesh-eating disease now consuming the GOP. This necrotizing bacteria we know today as the never-Trump Republican.
The anger and hatred they hurl Trump’s way expresses the frustration they feel. That frustration comes to a boil when they look at the three short but dynamic years of an action-packed and accomplishment-filled presidency. A presidency that illustrates the utter pointlessness of their long but meaningless public lives in Washington.
The Trump presidency has done more than expose the schemes of Democrat/Deep State traitors. It also uncovered their bumbling, enabling, and tongue-tied partners in the disgusting enterprise: those useless eunuchs of the weak-kneed GOP.
