Not sure if you guys knew this, but American politics is like, super corrupt.
Deep-pocketed supporters of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) and other GOP leaders have resolved to fight a protracted battle over the next year for the soul of the party in congressional primaries. “It’s shaping up to be McConnell, the Senate Leadership Fund and the Chamber against Bannon,” said Scott Reed, the senior political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “And we will take that fight.”
But the task will not be easy. Strategists from both sides of the party’s divide say recent focus groups and polling have shown that the frustration within the Republican base has only grown since the 2016 election, stoked by an inability to repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s health-care law.
The first battle will conclude this month in Alabama, where the incumbent senator — establishment-backed Luther Strange — is fighting uphill against former state Supreme Court judge Roy Moore, a conservative evangelical jurist who has twice been removed from the bench for defying legal decisions. Known for his conviction that Christian teachings are the source of all government authority, Moore has twice been elected statewide to the Supreme Court, but he also lost two primary campaigns for governor, in 2006 and 2010. He bested Strange by a margin of 39 percent to 33 percent in the first round of Senate primary voting last month.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), who came in third in the first round of primary voting, threw his support behind Moore at a rally Saturday. “It is truly amazing the audacity, the ego of the special-interest groups and the political action committees as they try to buy this United States Senate race thinking that with impunity they can run over the people of the state of Alabama,” Brooks declared.
In a sign of fights to come, the two Republican candidates are now competing to demonstrate their disgust with Washington politics. Strange, who was appointed this year to take the seat of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, begins one of his most recent television ads looking at the camera and announcing that he is “mad at Washington politicians.”
Moore describes his campaign as an effort to hurt McConnell, drain the swamp and bring more radical policies to the Senate, including a possible effort to impeach sitting U.S. Supreme Court justices for affirming the constitutionality of same-sex marriages.
Allies of McConnell have been blanketing the Alabama airwaves to shrink Moore’s polling lead. After spending nearly $4 million on ads before the first primary vote in August, the Senate Leadership Fund plans to blitz the state with another $4 million before the Sept. 26 runoff. So far this year, the super PAC has raised more than $11 million, including a $1 million infusion from hedge fund manager Paul Singer last month, federal filings show.
The Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee have also sunk money into the race to defend Strange. The Business Council of Alabama, working with the U.S. Chamber, plans a major employee get-out-the-vote operation to support Strange by arguing that he will be better for the state’s industry and jobs. The chamber has also paid for a statewide mailer and an ad campaign that will include a spot during Saturday’s Alabama and Auburn college football games. “There is no taking it back,” Reed said. “Alabama is the big enchilada.”
The Senate Leadership Fund is also taking aim at Bannon himself in an effort to tarnish his position as a champion of the Trump political movement. Law released a statement on Tuesday calling Bannon “dead wrong” for using a recent “60 Minutes” interview to criticize Trump’s decision to fire former FBI director James B. Comey.
The people voted for Trump because of the policies of Trump on the campaign.
This is what the people want (pretty much in this order, but maybe not exactly):
- An end to mass immigration
- Mass deportations of the immigrants already here
- A wall with Mexico
- An end to the provocations of Russia and push for WWIII
- An end to endless wars against Moslems
- An end to the lawless manner in which blacks are being dealt with
- An end to “free trade”
- An end to political correctness generally
- An end to the culture war against Christianity and family values
- An end to all of the homosexual and transsexual madness
- An end to Obamacare
These positions can be taken together as “Nationalist Populism.”
Before the election of “compassionate conservative” George W. Bush in 2000, these were normal Republican positions (except for the free trade one). 15-20 years before that, they were normal Democrat positions.
It is what the people want. But the government is ruled by bought and paid for shills, most of whom are probably pedophiles and involved in Satanic rituals.
So as the people rise up against this system, the system lashes out at the people and attempts to bring down the people by forcing all of these hated ideas back onto them.
We Need to Get in the Game
We need to get ready now for primary wars. You guys – you readers – need to sign up as Republicans to run in these primaries. This must happen. We do not have any choice.
We will lose some, but I think we will win some, and we will make a lot of noise and rally the people around us.
We don’t need Trump to do this, all we need is Trump’s platform.
And as we do this, we will be able to separate the movement itself from Trump.
I don’t think we should use the term “Alt-Right” for this project. Instead, we should just the term “National Populism.” That should be the name of the platform which Trump ran on, which is the Bannonist platform.
We should not be openly racist – that comes later. Right now, we just need to stick to the basics of the platform that got Trump elected. Of course, we should skip the Jew stuff that he was bullied into promoting. I mean the Israel stuff. When we are asked about Israel, we should use Trump’s original Israel position which is that they owe us money.
What we don’t need to do is get in a bunch of complicated anti-Semitic discussions.
That will come later.
Also, by not doing that, you guys can run without risking having your lives destroyed. We go crypto – for now.
Once you win, then you’re already a politician and getting your salary and you can slowly up the ante.
I am going to put together a full white paper for this. But if you are ready for this, you know who you are.
You have to be 25 to run for the House and 30 to run for Senate.
Whatever the case, we are going to make these elections into a gigantic spectacle.
This is the biggest thing we need to do right now.
Get ready for this.
