When did the GOP cease to be a functioning party? When was the exact moment that you knew the GOP establishment stands for nothing and stands against nothing?
This week brought yet another example of the GOP’s complete ideological collapse. The Senate just passed an unconstitutional “red flag” gun control bill last night with the help of 14 GOP senators — and they did so while Democrat activists were still illegally harassing Supreme Court Justices at their private homes. They did so one week after a Democrat activist tried to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his private residence. They did so while the GOP’s chief pansy Mitch McConnell was still complaining that Democrats refused to pass legislation for extra security to protect Supreme Court justices! What greater signal could the GOP establishment send that it has no interest in defending the lives of its own judges — let alone its own voters?
Texas Senator John Cornyn was the lead GOP negotiator on this gun control bill, and he pushed the legislation against the wishes of his own party and his own constituents — as he discovered at the Texas GOP convention last week.
Well, sounds like Texas Republicans aren’t a fan of Cornyn’s anti-2A bill
Entire convention center just erupted into boos when Cornyn took the stage
Senator Cornyn pushed the bill anyway. He also dismissed the Texas GOP as “a mob” in private conversation — which is proof that Cornyn has become (for all intents and purposes) a Democrat.
The corrupt corporate media hailed the gun control bill as a “bipartisan” effort, and that’s exactly what Republicans passing Democrat legislation always call their capitulations. Cornyn was joined in his treachery by the GOP’s usual gang of losers: Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, Rob Portman, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Bill Cassidy, Thom Tillis as well as more recent failures like Todd Young, Roy Blunt, Richard Burr, Shelley Moore-Capito, and Joni Ernst.
Ask yourself: why would 14 Republican senators sell out the Second Amendment rights of their own voters just before a widely-predicted “red wave” arrives this November? Why would the GOP establishment surrender to Democrats over the single most important issue for their own party right before a mid-term election that could put them back in control of the House and the Senate?
The answer is obvious: the GOP establishment has no interest in being the ruling party.
Think about it. The GOP establishment pushed for the Second Impeachment of Donald Trump even though Trump was no longer the President and the impeachment was illegal. Perhaps you still recall that moronic theater piece? The entire pointless exercise seemed to be designed by Mitch McConnell to enrage GOP voters.
Then the GOP establishment embraced the nomination of Merrick Garland as Biden’s Attorney General at the Department of Justice — and Garland repaid that faith by weaponizing the FBI to punish angry parents at school board meetings as “domestic terrorists.” That insane and unconstitutional police-state maneuver drew mostly yawns from the GOP’s spineless cowards.
Let’s face facts: the GOP doesn’t care to function properly even as an opposition party in the minority. We are living through the darkest period in American history since the Civil War — and the GOP establishment has continually come to the rescue of the Biden regime to make things worse.
How about Biden’s insane trillion-dollar infrastructure bill to spark rampant inflation? The GOP helped to pass it.
How about Biden’s push to create a bogus national holiday called Juneteenth to celebrate the Democrats’ constant race-baiting? The GOP establishment voted for it — and they did so while the FBI was still arresting GOP voters over a fake insurrection.
The Biden regime’s DOJ still believes that it can detain Trump voters indefinitely in solitary confinement for the “crime” of taking an unauthorized tour of the Capitol. What’s the GOP establishment’s view of this grossly unconstitutional violation of the rights of its own voters? Let’s just say that Lindsey Graham didn’t even care to deny the rumor that he personally urged Capitol Police to shoot the protesters on January 6th.
How about immigration? The GOP establishment blocked President Trump from getting adequate funding for the wall on the Southern border for four years — and it was Trump’s signature campaign issue. To understand the full cynicism of the GOP, just remember: the same people complaining about the border crisis right now are the same people who blocked Trump’s wall when they controlled all three branches of government in 2017-2018.
How about vaccine mandates? As the Biden regime forced Americans to take a deadly and experimental drug in 2021, did Mitch McConnell and the GOP have a problem with Americans losing their jobs because they refused to take the jab? Of course not. McConnell — who on his best days still looks like death warmed over — was in complete agreement with the Biden regime’s Chinese-style COVID tyranny and he made sure the party of limited government (snort!) and individual choice (guffaw!) did nothing and said nothing while the civil liberties of every American were essentially suspended without notice.
The GOP simply didn’t care if the Democrats got you fired from your job, and bankrupted, and ostracized socially and legally for refusing to get the shot on the orders of the Dr. Mengele of our day, Tony Fauci. The CDC suddenly became the fourth branch of government and suspended property rights and rental contracts unilaterally. Overnight, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were null and void. Due process disappeared instantly.
The GOP cheered this medical tyranny (with the valiant exceptions in the Senate of Rand Paul and Ron Johnson) all the way.
How much money — one wonders — did Big Pharma give to the GOP to play along?
So when people ask me if the GOP establishment has any plans to save them, or their business, or their freedoms, or their family from the neo-communist cultural revolution currently taking place in our country — what can I say?
I’m not in the business of lying to people.
You would have to be out of your mind to still believe that the GOP establishment is fighting against the Biden regime — as America dissolves before your very eyes into a tyrannical state ruled by a corporate oligarchy.
In point of fact, the GOP establishment is openly fighting alongside Democrats to maintain uni-party rule.
These people don’t think they’re our representatives — they’re our rulers.
I Need Your Support!
Who held the Biden Administration to account for its corruption every day like me?
Independent and fearless journalists need your support like never before.
I need your support like never before.
The corporate media is completely corrupt. Just go down the list: the Russia Hoax, the stolen 2020 election, the deadly COVID vaccines. The corporate media is actively trying to hide the truth from the American people on a daily basis.
If we are going to survive the current regime then we must stand together.
I’ve got your back.
Do you have mine?
