Trump's finest hour

In paying tribute upon his death, I wrote about Rush Limbaugh's finest hour. It was his magnificent speech to close the 2009 CPAC.

Remember how downtrodden and depressed conservatives were? Democrats had taken the White House, and had the House and a supermajority in the Senate once Arlen Specter flipped sides.

As Axl Rose once sang, where do we go from here?

Limbaugh told us. For 90 rock-em-sock-em minutes, he reminded us that we are playing the long game, that we are the positive force in the universe, and that we will prevail.

Now it falls upon President Emeritus Donald John Trump to rally the troops again. This time we are angry and frustrated, and why not? The last 4 years were a victory denied. The deep state refused to carry out presidential marching orders as that slimy Obama worked behind the scenes to foment resistance and sedition.

Obama used the FBI to spy on The Donald and got away with it. Who knows? They probably spied on him in the White House as well. Certainly Obama had his moles.

The Mueller witch hunt and the two impeachments stand as proof of an insurrection by people sworn to uphold the Constitution. They ignored it. Donald Trump's enemies list is called the Washington DC Phonebook.

On Sunday, as he closes the CPAC, our President Emeritus can inspire us again to raise our torches and pitchforks. There will be scores to settle, of course.

Tara Palmeri wrote that "he will formally pronounce himself party kingmaker and take aim at his enemies.

"Advisers to Trump say his hit list changes daily. But typically what he says privately, he says on stage. And he’s not just griping about the usual suspects (Mitch McConnell, Liz Cheney, and Nikki Haley).

"Three people close to Trump tell me that he’s stewing anew over Kevin McCarthy. It’s become so frequent that his advisers think the House minority leader may be in for a public reprimand. That’s even after the powwow at Mar-a-Lago where McCarthy tried to patch things up after he denounced Trump for the violence on Jan. 6.

"The reason for Trump’s displeasure: an emboldened Cheney.

"Each time Cheney criticizes Trump from her leadership post as the No. 3 House Republican, he’s reminded that it was McCarthy who pleaded with his conference to keep her on as chair — despite her vote to impeach Trump. The latest trigger came Wednesday, when Cheney said at a press conference that Trump should not lead the party going forward while McCarthy awkwardly stood by.

"We’ll see whether McCarthy can get to Trump before his speech Sunday. He seems to already be trying to work his way back into Trump’s good graces. On Thursday, McCarthy took a swipe at Cheney on Fox News, suggesting that she supports cancel culture."

***

This must be done. It is called party discipline. If you don't have discipline, you don't have a party. You just have a pack of grifters alternating between scratching backs and stabbing them. The press spins this as demanding fealty to Donald Trump.

Name the last Democrat who said anything untoward about Obama.

Or Biden.

Democrats still say nothing bad about Carter or Clinton.

McConnell, Cheney, and Haley did this to themselves. They thought once Donald Trump moved to Florida, it was over and they could dump on Trump to their delight.

Wrong.

Their public thrashing should be entertaining. They serve as whipping boys for Obama and the rest, not that I expect The Donald to lay off the Democrats.

But a second term is unlikely. Why go through that hell again?

No, the most important service our President Emeritus can do for his country is to slip into his role as elder statesman. We need him not as king but as the king maker helping to select our next president. This means fewer public appearances, and giving the country more spiritual and political guidance.

Mental illness is on the rise in our nation, in part because of the lockdowns, but also because of the proliferation and acceptance of recreational drug use. We also suffer mobs of crazy people screaming inanities such as some men have periods and some women have penises. The forced acceptance of craziness as a constitutional right is driving us to a madness that undoubtedly will be exploited by Iran, Red China, and every other enemy we have.

The very stable genius must rise and calm our fears.

I am sure he will. People ask me, who will take over for Rush Limbaugh? Their answer should come tomorrow.

  2. The name we have for the "Deep State" is too benign. It is a nefarious and evil group that deserves a name more illustrative of their character. Any suggestions?

    The Queen of Nasty has been dethroned. Nancy Pelosi is no longer the most despised politician in the swamp. That honor now has moved to that distinguished gentleman from Kentucky, Senator Turtlehead. I totally agree that he now deserves the "honor". Congratulations, Mitch. I'm sure you will wear your crown with pride.

    2. The Federal Empire.

      The spending bills coming out of Congress don't even pretend to serve as governance anymore. They are looting the country as a conqueror does. They are as unconcerned with the needs of the country as Spain was of New Spain or Rome was of Gaul. Their only interest is what can they steal.

    3. Neal Boortz called it the Imperial Federal Government. Kind of like J's idea above.

  3. Excellent. I could see him as the spokesman for MAGA conservatism. Kingmaker for house and senate seats. Having a yuuuuuuge say in our next presidential nominee. Kneecapper of Cheney, Murkowski, McCarthy, Sasse and others. Maybe lead the fight at the state level to fix the voting laws to be like what they used to be. Tomorrow’s speech may be one I watch.

    1. Exactly. Everyone knows that jill vs. kammy is gonna be an epic death match.

      Between "dr." (sic) jill and GOP refusal to go along with any 25th amendment charade, they are going to be stuck with their "placeholder" indefinitely. They'll have to outsource removal to hillary as the only viable way.

    2. I trust no one after The Steal. Trump has to turn the Republican Party into a fighting machine. All the losers like The Turtle, Romney and Cheney need to be thrown away as scrap. Meanwhile, the Democrat Freak Show continues unabated.

  8. I'd recommend that POTUS45 begin his speech with these words: "Since Biden is unable to give a State of the Union address this year, I will give it instead"...then off he goes!

  9. My only concern is that sometimes Trump rises to the occasion it sometimes he focuses on petty slights. I think more likely than not tomorrow's speech will be great, but as President Trump likes to say, “we’ll see what happens.”

    2. His speech on Jan 6th was a dud. But then I'm reading Patrick Byrne's book in which he explains that as of 6.30 PM on the 5th, Pence was on board with the delay-for-7-days plan. He talked to a staffer afterwards, reversed course, had a big fight with DJT in the AM in the WH, then most of the scheduled speakers were cancelled and the entire plan abandoned. Patrick also says that DJT received credible death threats.

      Personally, I think he should bow out. He had his shot and his time. The result was a disaster for the entire country. Not his fault, but still his legacy. The rest of the country has to find a way to get the Republic - now lost - back. Better to do it without him at this point.

      And also at this point: no clear path forward. Flynn has some ideas but they are bottom-up and do not explain how to eradicate Swamp countermeasures and sabotage without which nothing substantive can be done.

  10. The entire federal “justice” apparatus is hopelessly corrupt and criminal. I am armed and I will no longer comply.

  11. Screw that President Emeritus business.

    Donald John Trump is still our president.

    And frankly, I don't think he likes the idea of leaving a job half done. He knows he belongs at 1600 Pennsylvania and he's making sure the incompetence and corruption of the clown car is impressed on the American people.

    1. I share your sentiment but respectfully disagree:
      The Senate constitutionally ratified Biden as the 46th President. Yes, the election was stolen so Biden presides without the consent of the governed (albeit with the consent of the elites, whereas with Trump it was the other way around).

      That being the case, the Republic is no longer legitimate, i.e. has fallen. America may not yet be a failed state (though getting close with immanent financial collapse likely), but it is no longer a Constitutional Republic.

      This is a major crisis. Trump has yet to acknowledge that this happened on his watch. Flynn gave him a workable plan to turn it around in December. He listened to Rudy. And we all lost.

  12. "We’ll see whether McCarthy can get to Trump before his speech Sunday. He seems to already be trying to work his way back into Trump’s good graces. On Thursday, McCarthy took a swipe at Cheney on Fox News, suggesting that she supports cancel culture."

    Trump's greatest failing as president was allowing obvious saboteurs to remain in their positions. He kept Obama holdovers way too long when he should have canned them right after he took office. And, he appointed people who turned out to be enemies of the people. (I'd like to know who recommended these people to him. Was it Pence, or Jared or Ivanka?)

    Trump needs to CLEAN HOUSE!!! Period. He'd be far better off taking advice from Joe the Plumber and we all know it. His bad decisions about people close to him hurts all of us - big time. I hate to say it, but I expect to be disappointed on Sunday. But, as always, we'll see...

  13. The Republican establishment doesn't give a rip what Trump thinks about party discipline. And they aren't going to change because Trump is sharp with them. Trump needs to stick to the issues, work on election reform state by state and help get America First election reform people in office. The Republicans abandoned him as soon as he was elected

    1. The republicans abandoned him the moment they realised he was serious. That happened before he got nominated. Sure, some rode his coat tails, they were like fleas on a greyhound, didn't give a damn about the race.

  15. When the tide goes out you see who is swimming naked.

    The people who left Trump when they thought he was powerless didn't just fail the party, they failed their constituents and abrogated their oath of office, repeating obvious lies about Trump and over 75 million Americans. Anyone- Democrat or Republican- who repeats those lies does so to place their lust for power over our constitutional freedoms and the rule of law.
