President Donald Trump represents a dangerous example for the Washington D.C. establishment over which he now reigns.
For decades, (or longer), the American people have been merely in the back of the minds of these skilled and shrewd businessmen parading as public servants. From the advent of government lobbying, all the way to the Citizens United case, corporate greed has had their hand firmly on the nether regions of our American government. Now, a businessman-turned-President is looking to change all of that, and the entrenched are bucking back against him in a big way.
The establishment republicans, led by Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, are losing ground to men like Trump and Rand Paul thanks to the underground conservative media promoting the beliefs of the true American conservative majority. Alabama’s Roy Moore, a man cut from the same cloth as our protagonists, is well on his way to being the next Senator from Alabama; something that has McConnell and his lap dogs sweating profusely under those outdated suits.
Enter a bizarre, decades-old accusation of sexual misconduct looking to derail Moore that is starting to look more and more like an establishment coup.
“Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “’If these allegations are true, he must step aside.’
“Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) argued, ‘If there is any shred of truth to the allegations against Roy Moore, he should step aside immediately.’
“Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said, ‘If there is any truth at all to these horrific allegations, Roy Moore should immediately step aside as a Senate candidate.’
“Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said, ‘I’m horrified and if this is true he needs to step down immediately.’ Murkowski also said that she spoke to Luther Strange about becoming a write-in challenger to oppose Moore in the December 12 election.
“Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) said, ‘It was very troubling … if what we read is true and people are on the record so I assume it is,’ adding that ‘Moore should step aside.’
“Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) tweeted on Thursday, ‘The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of.’”
Of course, these allegations are only that, and there has been no discernible effort to verify the claims of these women as of yet.
The near-immediate chorus of establishment RINO republicans to weigh in on the Moore rumor mill is telling in and of itself. The speed at which they found a way to type 140 characters of damnation for a man who could redefine their career path indicates a sense of urgency not often found among Congressmen and women…unless, of course, they are in the midst of self preservation.
