Mitt’s Fit Signals GOPe’s Plan to End Trump’s MAGA Agenda

Elder Patriot – Alex Castellanos described the republican establishment plan to take down Donald Trump in late August of 2015.  That was only two months after Trump had announced his candidacy for president. Trump had already bolted into a strong lead over the 16 globalist approved candidates raising Castellanos’ concern that Trump would not be stopped by conventional political means.

At that time Castellanos said:

“The best way to do it is how Brutus killed Caesar. Get real close, snuggle up, and shiv him in the ribs.”

Castellanos went on to say:

“In other words, hug the message but not the messenger.”

Now consider what that message has been and the results of the past two years with control of both Houses of Congress entrusted to Republicans.

Less than a month before his election, on October 13 2016, Donald Trump defined the movement he was running to lead as president:

“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American People.

“The Washington establishment, and the financial and media corporations that fund it, exists for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself.

“The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election.”

“For those who control the levers of power in Washington, and for the global special interests they partner with, these people don’t have your good in mind.

“Our campaign represents a true existential threat…”

Trump’s successful candidacy differed from the 2010 success of the Tea Party only in that the person we elected was not a junior representative who could be easily co opted or relegated to back bench irrelevancy.

Through Trump we had seized control of the White House.

The newly inaugurated President Trump confirmed our faith in him when he delivered his inaugural speech:

“…today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people.

“For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth.

[…]

“Jan. 20, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.”

Now recall Castellanos’ words.: “… hug the message but not the messenger.”

Despite paying great lip service to Trump’s MAGA agenda, neither of the president’s supposed allies, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell nor Speaker of the House Paul Ryan brought any substantive legislation to the president’s desk.

McConnell, Ryan, and the GOP establishment they coordinate on behalf of the multinational cabal, walked a fine line between outwardly rejecting Trump’s time-honored GOP agenda – in which case they’d have destroyed the Republican half of the decepticons’ left-right paradigm, as well as their own political careers – and helping the Democrats defeat it.

Now ask yourself why the GOPe remained silent as Democrat operatives seemed to steal as many as two dozen House seats and three Senate seats.

Ask yourself why McConnell never delivered on his promise to repeal Obamacare:

“We put Obamacare on the president’s desk, he voted it.  Donald Trump would sign it.”

Ask yourself why McConnell orchestrated the loss of the Alabama Senate seat to a Democrat.  From the New York Times:

“The Republican base’s contempt for Mr. McConnell is more potent than its love for Mr. Trump. Mr. McConnell could be an anchor around incumbents in the same fashion as Representative Nancy Pelosi, the House Democratic leader, who is routinely used to undermine Democratic candidates. The loudest applause Mr. Moore received during an election-eve rally came when he declared, ‘Mitch McConnell needs to be replaced.’”

Ask yourself why President Trump has more than 350 appointees still awaiting approval almost two years into his administration.

Why didn’t Ryan and McConnell restore the regular budgetary process with majorities in both Houses?

Why has Ryan and McConnell blocked funding for the Wall – the single issue that was at the forefront of Trump’s campaign agenda?

Consider anti-Trump leadership’s lack of resistance during Obama’s first two years in office when Democrats rammed Obamacare and Dodd-Frank through – both bills that Republicans claimed to stridently oppose – without regard to the consequences.  Both bills enormously advanced the financial positions of multinational corporations.

Now, with all of the documented resistance to Trump from within his own party, consider Alex Castellanos’ words again in light of Mitt Romney’s recent op-ed assailing Donald Trump’s character:

“The best way to do it is how Brutus killed Caesar. Get real close, snuggle up, and shiv him in the ribs.”

Romney is as quintessentially a representative of the multinational corporate banking alliance as walks the earth.  He roams the country looking for a place to land so that he might undermine the efforts of pro-nationalist working-class Americans.

As governor of Massachusetts he signed the precursor to Obamacare.  As the 2012 Republican candidate for president, Romney ran such a moribund campaign that it seemed he wanted to lose to Obama.  

In retrospect it all makes sense now.  Losing the election allowed Obama to advance the Marxist-Globalist agenda, and protect the GOP brand in the process under the pretense that Republicans were powerless to stop it.

Then when Trump emerged as an unstoppable force powered by an American revolution, Romney worked against Trump and the will of the people.

Romney opposed Trump leading up to and then after his nomination.  

Now he has surfaced as the newly-minted Senator from Utah.

Romney may have all the requisite niceties of past RINO politicians, but he no more represents the needs of Joe Six-Pack than the Queen of England.

In my world, the true measure of the man isn’t the help he provides to multinational billionaires while lining his own pockets in the process.  It’s the way he treats the little people as he ascends the ladder on his way up and how he treats them when he gets there.

There’s also this little character thing about supporting those who supported you.

On December 31, 2016 we advised everyone to take a time to enjoy our hard-earned victory but that when you woke up of January 1st, know that the war had only just started and that the Deep State was as formidable and entrenched an enemy as existed.

The dismissal of charges against the Clinton Machine and the subsequent witch-hunt against President Trump, conducted by a weaponized CIA, DOJ, and FBI and all of the legal and political maneuverings surrounding it, gives you a glimpse of just how coordinated the corrupt elements of government can be when someone threatens it.

Amplifying that concern is that the corruption no longer appears to be limited to small groups of Obama appointees at the top of these agencies.  Two years on and we have no indications that even a single whistleblower from within the ranks has come forward.

All of this corruption has been protected by a Republican Congress and Senate.  That all changes tomorrow.

Now, Benedict Romney is actively seeking to capitalize on the division drummed up by the 24/7 anti-Trump mainstream media matrix to do the bidding of his globalist benefactors.

Buckle up.  This is when we earn the right to be called patriots.
