President Trump has installed himself King over the Republican Party and has all but named it the Trumplican Party. The coronation happened on Twitter, as Ed Gillespie lost his bid for governor of Virginia.
Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for. Don’t forget, Republicans won 4 out of 4 House seats, and with the economy doing record numbers, we will continue to win, even bigger than before!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 8, 2017
Ed Gillespie, former Chairman of the RNC. Former Counselor to President George W. Bush. Former senior campaign official for Mitt Romney. Now he is without a party, for the Trumplican Party does not stand for what the Ed Gillespies, George W. Bushes and Mitt Romneys stand for. And by that I mean they do not stand for personally embracing Donald Trump and whatever he decides to say or tweet at any given time.
As of tonight, you’re a RINO if Trump says you’re a RINO. And you’re not a Republican unless you’re a Trumplican–and these determinations can be made after the fact, especially if you lose. Let’s see if you ever hear Luther Strange’s name utter from Trump’s lips or see it on his Twitter feed again, for example.
If there was a more ominous portent for the GOP, it’s this, plus the fact that the GOP is actually viewed even worse by Americans than the Democrats, who are regarded somewhere beneath a door-to-door funeral plot salesman or a buy-here-pay-here used car lot owner.
With this loss–which was entirely predictable for months, given Virginia’s Demo-graphics, especially in the northern counties, Donald Trump has completed his takeover of the GOP. It’s an interesting strategy, because Trump would rather personally win and make the GOP his personal cult than have the GOP itself win. In this way, he’s very much like Barack Obama, who consolidated his hold on Congress for two years, then lost as the Obamacrat Party pulled further and further left.
Now the Barack-less Obamacrat Party has put itself on a path of self-destruction, which in turn made room for Trump to complete his GOP takeover. Both parties are locked in a deadly embrace, taking them further apart policy-wise and closer together in the paranoid conspiracy sense than they’ve ever been. And ordinary Americans have to live with the fallout.
A Trumplican Party is not, long term, a good thing, just like the Obamacrat Party was not good for the Democrats, or for America.
Losing one governor’s race in a state where it was likely the Democrats would win anyway is not a huge loss for the GOP, electorally-speaking. But it does mark Trump’s self-coronation, when he rejects a party stalwart because he “did not embrace me or what I stand for.”
This night will be remembered as the night Trump broke the GOP like a new bronco. Welcome to the Trumplican Party.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
