Washington is moving aggressively to inoculate itself against The Insurgents. By the looks of it, there will be no Republican insurgency.

The series of political eruptions begun when Donald Trump appeared on the scene is losing momentum.

The Republican Comitatus, to use Cullen Murphy’s description of Rome on the Potomac —”the sprawling apparatus that encompasses” political party leaders, pseudo-intellectuals, media, donors and kingmakers—has sprung into action to restore status quo.

Insider Paul Ryan has secured himself the position of House Speaker.

Ask neoconservative kingpins William Kristol, John McCain, Roger Ailes and the Koch Brothers who they’d tap for the position, any position—and the Ryan/Marco Rubio duo would be the reply.

Sen. Marco Rubio, however, is just where the vampiric Republican regimists want him: running his mouth off in the presidential debates. Paul Ryan is thus the right young blood to rein in a rebellion dominated by an older and wiser America.

Incidentally, neoconservative tool Rubio brought up some bad memories, during a September, Fox News broadcast, when he called for a “new American century,” an impetus that elicited a Halloween shudder.

The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) consisted of a group of prominent global interventionists close to or in the administration of Bush II. This group—among whom were neoconservatives Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz—had formulated a scheme for a post-Hussein Iraq well before September 11. By the early summer of 2001, Bush had assembled his neocon posse whose plan to go global could, at the time, be found on the Project for the New American Century’s website.

But I digress (or maybe not).

According to historian Clement Wood, it is an unwritten law followed “scrupulously,” “although omitted from the Constitution,” that the Speaker of the House of Representatives possesses “the czar-like power” “to recognize only such members as he pleases, and thereby strongly to influence legislation.”

After playing hard to get, pampered prima donna Paul Ryan agreed to assume the czar-like powers of Speaker of the House.

Much media coverage was given over to young Ryan’s feminist-worthy demand for a work-life balance. It certainly got the girls on CNN hot, Andy Cooper, in particular. (Try telling a major, private American corporation you want the same. You’ll be told in deeds more so than in words that you can have your bloody work/life balance, but expect to remain at the same grade till you retire, or are nudged into retirement on account of your love of equilibrium.)

But that’s OK. Political work is wealth-destroying work. The less of it Ryan does, the better.

Lost in the victory Ryan scored with feminists was the blow he dealt to the Republican insurgency rising.

As a rule, younger Republicans seem to want government to facilitate diversity, dope and gay marriage (none of which are in the Constitution). The older generation wants its leave-me-alone rights (in the Bill or Rights) restored.

GOP oldies are more likely to want less government than the youngsters they sired.

Duly, old school Tim Huelskamp, Republican representative from Kansas, who had been bullied by John Boehner for defying the speaker, told The Washington Examiner that no other speaker he knew of “would … have as much power as Paul Ryan asked for himself”:

“Those conditions include a request that the House eliminate a rule that allows a member to seek a vote to oust the speaker. That provision is part of the original rules of the House, authored by Thomas Jefferson.”

Ryan haggled until his anti-Jeffersonian “conditions” were met. These were, confirmed Time, that he “emerge as House Republicans’ unity candidate, endorsed by the three major factions of House Republicans.”

The Freedom Caucus folded.

In the Jeffersonian tradition, the most conservative of lawmakers wanted to be able to dissent from leadership without being censured by the speaker.

In the tradition of Boehner of Orange, whom the Left has just about beatified, Ryan wished to further consolidate power in the office of speaker.

The Ryan, regimist takeover had been presaged by a promising coup in the People’s House, earlier in October.

Another Boehner boy, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, was considered a shoo-in for the position of speaker.

One minute McCarthy was there, the next minute he was … gone.

The magic began with another, older Republican called Walter Jones. Rep. Jones, who is in the habit of signing off humbly as “Walter,” terrified the Californian Republican, Kevin McCarthy, into withdrawing his bid for speaker.

“Walter” did his magic by circulating a missive in which he urged, nay demanded, that “any candidate for Speaker of the House, majority leader, and majority whip, withdraw himself from the leadership election if there are any misdeeds he has committed …”

No one knows or much cares why McCarthy recused himself with a speed that made the zombie media come alive. But CNN’s Dana Bash and her zombie fellow travelers on network and cable confessed to being flabbergasted.

McCarthy’s magic disappearing act was a feat unseen before. The predictable hustle-and-flow of political pimping had been disrupted. (“Walter”: Come out and take a bow. The reason nobody has thanked this patriot is likely because “Walter”—unlike his wicked party members—has tried to atone for destroying Iraq.)

McCarthy was likely fooling around with fellow Rep. Renee Ellmers. More important: He would have screwed-over the conservative caucus rising.

So, Kevin was gone. His departure so unusual did not portend chaos in the ranks, as the mono-cultural media insisted. Rather, it was a harbinger of creative destruction.

Enter Paul Ryan. As pretty as Damien—down to the shiny black hair and piercing blue eyes—the man was equal to the task of restoring the rule of Boehner.

ORDER IT NOW

The Republican Comitatus, like the Democratic praetorians, has a media flank. And Fox News’ Megyn Kelly had moved into shooting position. The anchor was first to galvanize the Grand Old Party’s biggest guns, in her crusade against the one anti-establishment Republican candidate who dared call her bluff (and expose her fluff).

Kelly’s love-in with Emperor Charles Koch exemplified the Barbara Walters School of saccharine, sell-out “journalism.” The Kelly woman’s clucking and cooing on that occasion was as disgraceful as it was stupid: She solicited one unflattering, hackneyed condemnation after the other about Mr. Trump.

Hard on Megyn Kelly’s Jimmy Choo heels came the Wall Street Journal, another progressive wing of the GOP establishment, featuring a highly contrived Koch-centric article in which “ordinary voter” Charles Koch sounded off against Trump’s so-called intolerant “tone.” (Yes, borders are an outrageous intolerance, as is the notion of the pre-eminence of English in American life.)

The Koch Brothers are a GOP Goliath worth around $115 billion. They’re gunning for Donald Trump who’s worth $10 billion.

The stars in the Republican establishment’s constellation are aligning against an insurgent.

Numero uno is Michael Savage, who is unwavering. Another is Mark Levin. Quite a few billionaires have lent their support to Trump, including Jews (Icahn and Cuban). I'm sure about 90% of the Orthodox Jews in Williamsburg, Brooklyn are supporting Trump because most of them listen to Savage.

    Which is why a Donald Trump POTUS will be a complete failure. Trump POTUS will be attacked-undermined by the likes of Ryan…and the Democrats in the Senate and Congress.

    The fundamental threat facing The Historical Native Born White American Majority is very rapid race-replacement across the US. The Democratic Party has been importing its high fertility, highly racialized voting bloc since the passage of the 1965 Immigration Reform Act. Fifty years later China and India owns almost every member of the US Congress(think India Policy Group).

    Fifty years later after the passage of the 1965 Immigration Reform Act….China colonizes Montanna and Idaho.

    Trump could have hit it out of the ball park a few days ago by denouncing the treasonous H-1-L-1 B Visa Program….he would have been denounced the next day by the Chinese Fifth and Hindu Fifth Column….and this would have been wonderfull for it would have alerted millions of Native Born White Americans to the existence of a highly racialized very wealthy Asian Fifth column on Native Born White American Living and Breeding Space.

    Race-replacement can not be reversed through the DC Beltway.

    Trump is the only thing keeping me in the GOP. When he’s gone from the race or the White House, I’m gone from the GOP. The previous reason to stay or vote GOP is gone, namely, it’s better than the alternative. Now it’s just pick your dystopia, and frankly bureaucratic oligarchy seems preferable to corporate oligarchy. I’m now of the opinion that an old, stodgy, and stubborn socialist sounds more appealing and safer than any neocon (on the right or left, e.g. Hillary or Marco).

    Sad but true – most Gentiles support Israel. It shows the power of propaganda – propaganda works. The repletion of a set of words that go unquestioned – take over the human mind – the human mind just gives in the words – they become a false truth.

    The endless and unquestioned victimization screed of the holocaust and poor poor beleaguered Israel have done their job. Sadly they have become truth for most Gentiles.

    Savage, Levin, and Ledeen rant on and on about what great conservative Americans they are – but they go ballistic when it comes to Israel – no one can doubt that they serve Israel first.

    Hi Sherm,

    That is standard Trump – he is an unquestioned good Christian – he is without question pro life - he is the MOST anti-immigrant, the MOST pro-military, and the MOST pro-Israel of them all. That is good politics. With just a few words he blunts most attacks that he is weak on Republican issues. The question is he telling the truth – that is doubtful on some of those subjects.

    I do think he is being honest when he says that he is pro-Israel. But there is pro-Israel and there is pro-pro-Israel. Will he chose Israeli interests over America’s interests? Hmm!

  8. I agree that most of Congress will not help Trump, but there are lots of things Presidents can do without their help, like ending foreign wars. He can also close some useless overseas military bases without approval. He can put U.S. troops back on the border (they left in 1945) interpret laws how he wants, and veto bills. But I’ll be surprised if Trump is allowed to play much longer. They don’t even hide their criminal threats against him, like this:

    “On Tuesday evening, establishment Republican consultant Rick Wilson said the GOP establishment donor class must find a way to “put a bullet” in GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

    In an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Wilson conceded that “Trump is still a very powerful force right now” because he appeals to part of the of the conservative base that Wilson said was activated by his “nativist” message. Wilson insisted that the donor class “can’t just sit back on the sidelines and say, ‘oh well, don’t worry, this will all work itself out.’”

    “They’re still going to have to go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump,” Wilson said. “And that’s a fact.””

No matter how you slice it, liberals, moderates, and leftists have an ideological majority in D.C. due to their divide and conquer strategy. But let’s not despair yet.

    First off, the appellation "anti-Semite" is a poor one. I prefer "Jew-hater." I am fairly anti-Semitic, definitely anti-Zionist, and firmly anti-negro all based on the behavior of those groups as a whole. I am not, however, a Jew-hater having grown up with Jews, several Jewish friends, and having high regard for Jews like Ron Unz, Nicholas Stix, and Ilana to name just a few.

    Second, there is no candidate for Jew-haters. None. And that's a good thing. Unfortunately though, several candidates favor one group of Semites over another group when we ought to just let them sort it out amongst themselves.

    I didn't consciously use the Anon pseudonym and don't recall using the word "hasbara" at all (ever actually except in quotes) but I received an email from [email protected] telling me of Comment #18.

    As I am pleased to call Ron a friend, albeit mostly known for many years electronically, I certainly share the concern of those who wonder whether people who use abusive anti-Semitic rants are trying to discredit the UR. One Jewish friend to whom I recommended the webszine said to be shortly "its full of people who want to kill me". So consider that if you really want the Unz Review to succeed.

    What is said about Gerald Kaufman could easily have come from me too. So it probably did.

    FWIW I went to a church school and even briefly taught at Sunday School. I got to know the Bible, mostly New Testament, pretty well, from frequently being a reader n church or chapel.

    It would be nice if your explanation of the problem were so simple. A lot (the majority) of the ruling elites and policy makers in both parties are Gentiles. As is the owner/head of Fox News. As are the über-powerful Koch brothers. While some of the biggest voices against this tyranny of the GOP/Democrat establishment and supporters of Trump, are Jewish. Numero uno is Michael Savage, who is unwavering. Another is Mark Levin. Quite a few billionaires have lent their support to Trump, including Jews (Icahn and Cuban). I'm sure about 90% of the Orthodox Jews in Williamsburg, Brooklyn are supporting Trump because most of them listen to Savage.

    “It would be nice if your explanation of the problem were so simple. A lot (the majority) of the ruling elites and policy makers in both parties are Gentiles.”

    Sad but true – most Gentiles support Israel. It shows the power of propaganda – propaganda works. The repletion of a set of words that go unquestioned – take over the human mind – the human mind just gives in the words – they become a false truth.

    The endless and unquestioned victimization screed of the holocaust and poor poor beleaguered Israel have done their job. Sadly they have become truth for most Gentiles.

    Savage, Levin, and Ledeen rant on and on about what great conservative Americans they are – but they go ballistic when it comes to Israel – no one can doubt that they serve Israel first.

    Clearly the Jewish led Republican Party establishment and the Jewish led Democratic Party establishment are our democracy’s enemy. The parties are making our government unworkable.

    Trump is a true outsider – he is the only hope for correcting our political situation.

    Trump was asked if he could get along with congress? He gave a tentative - Yes. He is dreaming. Congress will fight him tooth and nail. If Trump is elected president – it will be one man against them all – period.

    p.s. That goes for the Jew main stream media also – Fox-n-Krauthammer, CNN, CNBC, et all will all attack him without mercy.

    p.s. Expect some kind of a false flag dirty trick operation against Trump before the first primary.

    Clearly Cruz is one smart guy – a very good debater – and unafraid to take on the Gentile Republican establishment.

    BUT he is also 100% for Israel – if fact, he is a true believer – he is a man who emotionally loses it if Israel is questioned.

    He is blind to what the neocon Jews are doing to our country and the ME. It is mind boggling that someone who calls himself a Christian and is so brilliant, can be so morally wrong.

  22. “GOP oldies are more likely to want less government than the youngsters they sired.”

    Please, spare me. I don’t see many fogeys in the trenches for cutting Medicare and Social Security, which are by far the two largest entitlement programs in the states, and which together comprise greater than 40% of the US Federal budget. They only pay out to old people. The Boomer generation are a bunch of embezzlers who are committing theft against their unborn grandchildren.

    Hello Little Art,

    Did it ever occur to you that Trump boasts about his Jewish daughter (she converted), his Jewish grandchildren and also claims to be the most pro-Israel of all the candidates?

    I personally once shook hands with Trump at a fundraiser for a Jewish organization.

    I wonder if you still support him.

    Sherman

    “Did it ever occur to you that Trump boasts about his Jewish daughter (she converted), his Jewish grandchildren and also claims to be the most pro-Israel of all the candidates?”

    Hi Sherm,

    That is standard Trump – he is an unquestioned good Christian – he is without question pro life – he is the MOST anti-immigrant, the MOST pro-military, and the MOST pro-Israel of them all. That is good politics. With just a few words he blunts most attacks that he is weak on Republican issues. The question is he telling the truth – that is doubtful on some of those subjects.

    I do think he is being honest when he says that he is pro-Israel. But there is pro-Israel and there is pro-pro-Israel. Will he chose Israeli interests over America’s interests? Hmm!

    Art

    p.s. So Little Jew, how are the beaches in Israel today – you ogling the half naked girls today while your Big Jew leader encourages your Little Jews compatriots to murder your fellow Gentile citizens?

  25. It’s clear to me from the way Paul Ryan behaves under pressure (e.g. in television interviews, his Speakership candidacy, and his pathetic debate with Joe Biden) that he is something of a lowbrow philistine with an easily bruised ego, little to no principles, and perhaps a mild personality disorder. One expects to find his sort selling cars on the mega-lot just off the freeway or middle-managing his way through life at a real estate firm, not presiding over the nation’s premier legislative body. He is an insecure, career-climbing man riven by petty jealousies and unable to see beyond the lower goods of material comfort and security.

    His approach to the Speaker’s position was not at all characteristic of a man actually worthy of power, who would have simply accepted it with reticence and a sort of brooding determination, and would have considered the great burdens of the job to be his particular honor to bear. Paul Ryan “negotiated” his way into the position by effectively saying, “I will take this job only if you permit me in advance to wimp out on any of its real demands.” This is the soul’s confession, perhaps in spite of itself, that it just isn’t up to the task.

    If there’s one thing we don’t need any more of in American politics, it’s 9-5 types who lack the gravity, the tragedy, and the esprit for engaging in real statesmanship. A real leader would have reveled in the difficulties, would have called forth the difficulties–not demanded protection from them. The Republican Party can expect from Ryan basically what the Labour Party got from Ramsey MacDonald and Sidney Webb: Ineffective, self-serving leadership that loses the broader battle not with a bang, not even with a whimper, but with a shrug.

    Of course we know why he did it – he wants to put the blame for what happened in WWII on the Palestinians. He is so transparent. You, I, and the world know that he wants to use the new lie to eliminate the Palestinians.

    hahaha love the humor! There are powerful members of the Donor Class as well as members of the Freedom Caucus who support Ryan’s ascension to the Speakership for one primary reason: Immigration. Full-on, American-worker-replacing, nation-transforming immigration. Power and money drives their delusions.

    I think Anon is correct, Art is a Hasbara plant attempting to sully Unz.com and Trump with his anti-Semitic rants. This is the one downside of letting any and all replies fly at Unz.com (except for Razib, who will call you an idiot and ban you). Or he might believe what he's saying, in which case he's bizarrely misinformed, as Trump is not he best candidate for anti-Semites as you point out. In fact, he is probably the worst. Ironically, the best candidate for anti-Semites is the Brooklyn Jew, Bernie Sanders.

    Trump is not he best candidate for anti-Semites as you point out. In fact, he is probably the worst. Ironically, the best candidate for anti-Semites is the Brooklyn Jew, Bernie Sanders.

    First off, the appellation “anti-Semite” is a poor one. I prefer “Jew-hater.” I am fairly anti-Semitic, definitely anti-Zionist, and firmly anti-negro all based on the behavior of those groups as a whole. I am not, however, a Jew-hater having grown up with Jews, several Jewish friends, and having high regard for Jews like Ron Unz, Nicholas Stix, and Ilana to name just a few.

    Second, there is no candidate for Jew-haters. None. And that’s a good thing. Unfortunately though, several candidates favor one group of Semites over another group when we ought to just let them sort it out amongst themselves.

    "Are you a hasbara plant trying to destroy the Unz Review’s credit with your rank anti-Semitism?"

    Your feigned concern for the Unz.com is illustrative of the Jew mindset and culture. Your twisted words mark you as completely dishonest. We all know it is YOU who desires to shut down this site.

    The Unz Report is successful because it publishes articles and allows comments on controversial subjects – the intelligence of different groups of peoples, the whole question of race, and YES – the sad sad story of the lost promise of Israel and tribal Zionism.

    We all must admire Ron Unz’s courage.


    p.s. As a philosophical Christian, my concern is for sacred life - all human life, even Jew life. When push comes to shove - I will be your best friend.

    I am amazed. I think it might be that I should be amazed at the genius of Ron’s software enjoying itself being naughty.
