The Naked Faces Of The GOP And Conservative Establishments

30 June 2014 @ 21:10

We are now strenuously endeavouring, in a peaceable manner, by this single power the force of Unanimity — to preserve our freedom. Those, who lessen that unanimity, detract from its force — will prevent its effect — and must be, therefore, justly chargeable with all the dreadful consequences to the Colonies.

—John Dickinson, Letters To The Inhabitants Of The British Colonies, May 1774

Angelo Codevilla has published another masterful take on the present and dire situation in The United States.

It is, truly, a must read for all Constitutionalists because it unmasks the treachery, wickedness, and sickening debasement behind the actions of the GOP and Conservative Establishments.

A few highlights [tip of the fedora to Newrouter]:

The Republican establishment, as it works with Democrats to overcome challenges from GOP and independent voters dissatisfied with the course of events in America, confirms that it is part of the ruling class responsible for those events, and that it intends to push America further along that course. By its campaign for Senator Thad Cochran in Mississippi’s senatorial primary, the GOP establishment removed all doubt about this.

That ruling class consists of most elected office holders from both parties, of the great mass of government workers, of the public-sector labor unions, of the educational establishment and the media, of the major financial institutions, and of the army of lobbyists, consultants, and fixers who broker the spread of the trillions of dollars that flow through government. Its clients are the low-end clients who enable the machine in exchange for meager benefits….


To Republican and independent voters who are dissatisfied with the direction of the country, the conflict between the pretenses and the actions of such as Rove and of the [The Wall Street] Journal added insult to injury. The Journal, for example, never loses an opportunity to declare itself the mortal enemy of “crony capitalism” as it decries the direction in which America has been headed, while the word “conservative” as part of the title of Rove’s super-PAC intentionally evokes the complex of sentiments of voters angry at the ruling class’s characterization of them as, well, the litany: “racist, greedy, stupid,” etc.

Indeed, the Republican Party’s very identity, the one, sole, argument it makes to persuade voters to vote Republican rather than Democrat, is that it will take the country in a direction different from the one in which it has been going.

But, in the Mississippi primary, the Republican Establishment’s campaign was by and for crony capitalism, and employed the classic themes by which the ruling class has beaten down the rest of America.

I strongly urge you to click here and read the whole of Mr. Codevilla’s post.

If the Republican Party wakes up on the morning after Election Day 2014 and finds that it has failed to gain control of the Senate and that it has been been either weakened or has lost control in the House, it has only itself to blame.

In other words, if the hopes of the GOP Leadership are once again dashed, it will be because it decided to treat the Constitutionalists like pariahs.

Our decisions to not vote or vote for the Democratic candidates or to vote for minor party candidates will not be deserving of any reproach from the GOP and Conservative Establishments, for it was they who decided to seek our destruction, to declare to our fellow Americans that we were the equivalent of lepers — diseased people, whose beliefs when adhered to, when contracted, could cause them to be cast-out of ‘normal’ Society.

As Mr. Codevilla remarks:

…Clearly such behavior by the Republican establishment has nothing to do with the role it claims for itself of opposition to the direction on which America has been taken in recent decades, never mind with anything “conservative.” It has everything to do with maintaining its status, and that of its clients, within the ruling class.

Seeking a seat at the table of Power And Control, the GOP and Conservative Establishments believe that the invitation to join in the feeding frenzy — where the main course consists of Freedom and Liberty and where the Left In America has been gluttonously dining for well over a century — will only come if they, at the very least, delegitimize we Constitutionalists and, at the very best, destroy us as an effective political and cultural force.

The nasty joke, of course, will end-up being on them because, if the GOP and Conservative Establishments eliminate their Base, if they render their main source of votes that get them elected impotent, then they destroy their bargaining power.

The best they can hope, at the point, for is a seat at the small children’s table in the adjoining Living Room.  Their future use and survival as [small-time only] players will be as token opponents, used solely to maintain a fiction of popular representation.  They will become the Washington Generals to the Left’s Harlem Globetrotters.  These Useful Idiots will face a future where they exist at the sufferance of their Despotic Masters, stripped of all Dignity, held in unyielding contempt, their individual survival subject to the whims of their depraved overlords.

I do not believe we Constitutionalists will be destroyed because you cannot murder that Spirit that animated The Founding Fathers.  We may have to go underground or gather together and effect a separation, but that Spirit will survive as long as one person holds it dear and sacred in his heart.

    George W Bush NEVER found his veto pen. From that moment on, I knew we were well and truly eff’d. New World Order. They really believe it.

      Their belief in it only varies by degrees, it seems.

    It seems a bit disingenuous to use the term “and Conservative Establishments.” to describe what Mr. Codevilla wrote. I don’t see that term used anywhere in his article. Perhaps you’re using it to describe false front organizations like Rove’s super PAC that misappropriate the term “Conservative” in their titles, but which obviously are as Conservative as they are, say, Libertarian or Constitutionalist.

      Is CPAC part of the establishment? Is the American Enterprise Institute? What about National Review or The Weekly Standard?

      I think “GOP and Conservative Establishments” is a pretty good description of the right side of the regulatory-political complex.

        Thanks. I was looking for a way to distinguish between the two, even though I’m tying them together in perfidy and cluelessness.

    A Damned Shame you’ve forgotten this.
