The Weekly Standard: The Ideas and The Vessel

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 14:18
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Weekly Standard agrees with National Review that Trump has become a conventional Republican president:

For their part, establishment Republicans in Washington decided during the primaries that, if he were elected, Trump, lacking any of his own ideas, would become the vessel for their priorities. Which is why, when push came to shove, The Swamp backed Trump over Ted Cruz.

The Swamp turned out to be correct, of course. Trump has delivered no border wall, but seems intent on extending DACA. He did not repeal Obamacare, but he did pass a giant tax cut favored by big corporations and the Chamber of Commerce. As a matter of policy, his administration has been indistinguishable from what one might have expected from John McCain or Mitt Romney, had they become president. Only with corruption and staff turmoil and a special investigator and Twitter.

So the Republican establishment was able to separate the ideas of Trumpism from the vessel of Trump—and they chose Trump. Not surprising. Politics is about power and ideas are a luxury. …”

The God Emperor has been cucked.

Why do you think that we are the only ones drawing attention to this? We became alarmed and started documenting this process early in the transition.
