For the Republican Party establishment it’s business as usual. All the blather about “fighting liberals” is just that–blather. When push comes to shove the Republican and Democratic Party establishments are in bed with one another and have been for decades. Each one scratches the other one’s back and what goes on in politics in this country today should be ample demonstration to fed-up voters that while the establishment gets the gold mine they get the shaft. As time goes on it becomes more and more apparent that many elections are nothing more than a farce that is gone through to fool the public while the ruling elite that controls both parties really decides who will get into office.
What the Republican establishment did to Ron Paul in 2012 should have been a wake-up call. Ron was the only Republican candidate with any integrity and that was the one reason they couldn’t let him get within a thousand miles of the White House. No honest man gets to be president anymore and it’s getting more and more obvious that not too many honest ones even get into Congress anymore. You’re a shoo-in if you are willing to sell your soul and play the game. Otherwise, forget it. Honest ain’t the best policy in Washington, subtlety and deceit are.
On June 3rd this year they had a Senate Primary in Mississippi. It was a nail biter. But Chris McDaniel, who was supported by the Tea Party folks ended up with about 49.6 % of the vote and Thad (play along to get along) Cochran, who has been in the Senate forever, ended up with something like 48.6 % of the vote. This insured a run-off election, since neither candidate got 50%. The run-off was held on June 24th and, guess what, Chris McDaniel, who some polls had said had an 8 point lead, lost to Mr. Cochran by 7,000 votes or thereabouts. I must say I wasn’t really surprised. I had hoped it would be different, but in my heart of hearts, knowing how the Republican establishment works, I felt this was how it would turn out. The Republican establishment wants Mr. Cochran back there because he is a sure vote in favor of whatever the Republican/Democratic establishment wants to push while Chris McDaniel isn’t.
In fact, one of the ways the Republican establishment got Cochran back into the running was to court Democratic votes, especially in liberal and black areas. Only problem is, it seems that some of these Democratic voters may already have voted in previous primaries, which would make their votes on this go-round ineligible. But don’t hold your breath waiting for the Republican establishment in Mississippi to complain about that. It seems that they are partly responsible for that happening in the first place.
McDaniel observed: “They say they’re going to fight the liberals in Washington, but they embraced the liberals in Mississippi just to win the election. It’s the worst style of politicking I can imagine.” In fact, the voting “irregularities were so egregious that the McDaniel campaign is looking into the possibility of whether a challenge is warranted. Personally, I hope the McDaniel campaign issues a challenge. Unfortunately, all I can say to Mr. McDaniel is “Welcome to the realities of Republican Party politics where hypocrisy runs amok and honesty is a rarely seen commodity.”
We need to remember that this is the party of Lincoln–this is the party that socialists and Marxists helped to found back in the late 1850s. This is the party that ran both Fremont and Lincoln as presidential candidates–both men about as far left as you can get. Those who think of the Republican Party as “conservative” or “patriotic” only know the history back as far as the 1940s and 50s, when the Party was trying to present a conservative image, they don’t know this history back to day one. In the 1800s the Republican Party was every bit as radical and leftist as the Democrats are today. In the middle of the 1900s they slid a little to the right in order to give the voting public something they could perceive as “conservative”–the perception being very illusory.
When push comes to shove, the Republican/Democratic establishment is really made up of ultra-liberals, with a few conservative Republicans paraded before the public as window dressing. However, the window dressing will never decorate the White House, but the RINO’s will.
If you’d like to do a little homework and research, check out on the Internet, the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission and look to see how many Republicans have been involved with those two groups over the decades. Read Gary Allen’s book None Dare Call it Conspiracy online. It’s there and you can read it for nothing. I’m not sure if it’s online or not, but check out Gary Allen’s other book The Rockefeller File. And check for a book called The Invisible Government by Dan Smoot. That might be online also. All these will give you a definite idea as to who really runs things in this country and how both Republicans and Democrats are totally controlled by our unelected rulers.
So Chris McDaniel in Mississippi shouldn’t really be surprised. He got what most honest Republicans get from their party–a stick in the eye. Hopefully, he may be able to grasp what “his” party did to him if he can connect the dots and look back at what they did to Ron Paul in 2012.
