President Emeritus Donald John Trump

The Washington Establishment keeps yammering about a civil war within the Republican Party. There is no war, just a pathetic attempt by the establishment to hang on to the power it failed to use for 4 years.

This is Donald John Trump's party now. It has been since 2016.

Newt Gingrich, who fought the establishment and won and later lost, recognizes how blind the fake conservatives are to this simple truth.

Gingrich told WABC, "What's very striking is that President Trump still has such enormous reach in the party that nobody can fight him. You can complain about him. You can criticize him. But McConnell can't possibly fight Trump. He doesn't have a big enough base.

"It's also a reminder that there is an establishment insider party that sits around at cocktail parties in Washington. And then there's this huge country outside of Washington. That country in 2015, by about 2-1, did not like the Republican leadership in the Congress. That was the forerunner of us ending up with Trump as a presidential nominee. [Kevin] McCarthy has been much smarter as the House Republican leader to recognize his ability to get the extra seats [to win the House] rests almost entirely on working with Trump, not picking a fight with him."

McCarthy understands that Donald Trump has the votes because Donald Trump was a successful president. 

75 million people voted for him, a record for an incumbent president. Even if you believe the election was legitimate, you realize that those 75 million Trump supporters narrowed the Democrat lead in the House, and when they stayed home in January, they cost Republicans the Senate.

I told readers that I did not care who won in Georgia because owning the Senate did us no good for 6 years. 

Where's the wall?

Where's the repeal of Obamacare?

Where's the investigation of Spygate?

Republicans promised us everything, but gave us a dud. 

Donald Trump delivered, and gave us prosperity and peace.

Donald Trump gave us 3.5% unemployment.

Donald Trump gave us no new wars.

Donald Trump gave us an embassy in Jerusalem, which led to 4 Muslim nations formally making peace with Israel, bringing the total to 6 in 72 years.

But most of all, President Emeritus Trump gave us leadership. He fought back. He took them all on: the media, the deep state, and the online oligarchs. He had no choice because they refused to accept his presidency. 

And by rejecting his presidency, they rejected the American people and the constitutional republic. The establishment finally revealed that the will of the people does not matter to them. 

The people are woke to this rejection in Washington.

USA Today reported, "An exclusive Suffolk University/USA Today Poll finds Trump's support largely unshaken after his second impeachment trial in the Senate, this time on a charge of inciting an insurrection in the deadly assault on the Capitol Jan. 6.

"By double digits, 46%-27%, those surveyed say they would abandon the GOP and join the Trump party if the former president decided to create one. The rest are undecided."

Impeachment always is a huge gamble, one that backfired on Gingrich, who resigned as speaker within weeks of Clinton skating on his perjury impeachment. 

6 years after the failed impeachment of Andrew Johnson, he came back to Washington as a senator.

By impeaching Donald Trump twice, Democrats made him a double martyr. His record as president and their record of failure (including the Mueller investigation) have elevated Donald Trump to president emeritus.

The USA Today story said, "Trump voters are prepared to punish those who crossed him. Eight in 10 say they would be less likely to vote for a Republican candidate who supported Trump's impeachment, as 10 representatives did in the House. An equal portion, 80%, say the seven Republican senators who voted to convict Trump were motivated by political calculations, not their consciences."

The story also said, "Only 4% say the impeachment trial made them less supportive of Trump; 42% say it made them more supportive. 54% say it didn't affect their support."

Finally, the story said, "By 59%-29%, Trump voters say they want him to run for president again in 2024. If he ran, 76%, would support him for the nomination; 85% would vote for him in a general election."

No one else comes close.

6 of those 7 turncoat Republican impeachment senators faced rebuke back home. Only Mitt Romney was spared.

Instead of fighting Donald Trump, smart Republicans like Kevin McCarthy support him. They realize he offers the only future the party has. 

Bums like Paul Ryan punked out on Donald Trump and 75 million Americans.

And McConnell and company failed to give those 75 million people their hearing in December. We are entitled to an investigation of election irregularities. 

The only question now is whether people will bother to vote again. And that is a serious question because by refusing to examine the evidence of election shenanigans, McConnell undercut people's faith in the electoral process.

Which is exactly what the Washington Establishment wants. They want us deplorable dregs of society to lay down and die.

I have a feeling that Donald Trump will rally us in 2022 and 2024. He does not need to be the nominee in 2024 because he is our president emeritus.

He earned the title by delivering on his promises.
