Club for Growth joins GOP to save the establishment and destroy conservatives

While many disagree with me, I fully expect the Democrats to win big in November and to retake the majority in the House and possibly the Senate. Though doing so primarily to fill their campaign coffers, even GOP leadership has been sounding the alarm about this probable outcome.

There are many reasons for the upcoming election apocalypse, such as: Trump’s historically low job approval numbers, Republicans breaking every major campaign promise, and the fact that the past two years of GOP control in Washington has been one of the most unproductive legislatures in history. But this is only part of the reason for their upcoming defeat.

More than anything else, the reason Trump and the GOP are likely to lose big in November boils down to their complete abandonment of conservative values and their goal to wipe out the conservative base of the party.

Mitch McConnell has always hated conservatives, making it his personal goal to crush them whenever they challenged one of his establishment buddies. When he was House Speaker, John Boehner was so fearful of conservatives that he denied them committee assignments if they refused to toe the party line.

And Trump has often joined McConnell in attacking conservative groups like the House Freedom Caucus for not marching to the GOP establishment’s orders.

Within Washington, these attacks have succeeded in rebranding conservatism in the House, and they have led to recent Boehner-esque rule changes punishing conservatives when they get out of line. But the disease has spread and is now infecting organizations outside of Congress we used to rely on to be a voice for the conservative cause.

For example, in an article I wrote a few days ago, I shared how the Article V Convention of States Project was using its platform to promote Trump and his policies and to use the Convention to pass amendments giving the Office of the President more power.

Now comes word that the Club for Growth — a so-called conservative organization working for things like free trade, limited government, a balanced budget amendment, and school choice — will be working to save the GOP establishment and will be spending millions of dollars on about a dozen races for the US House and Senate.

This sudden announcement comes on the heels of a rumor that the GOP is instructing conservative groups like Club for Growth to abandon certain House races in Iowa and California because they are lost causes.

The GOP attack on conservatives has destroyed the Party of Reagan, and it’s now destroying parts of the conservative movement outside of Washington. And even though Trump and the GOP face imminent defeat in November, I’m sure they’re smiling on the inside at the sight of the demise of conservatism.
