Establishment politicians are like boulders, they are big and powerful but they do nothing useful and only get in the way. Americans elected Obama because he promised change. Well, change never came, why? Because Obama bowed to the will and whim of the establishment Democrats. In comes Donald Trump. Trump was elected President because he promised change and visible results that would set America back on the course of GREATNESS.
Excellent! Donald Trump really hit the ground running, but there is one problem – that is, if you’re an establishment politician. The problem with Trump is that one of the changes he promised was to drain the swamp. He promised to blow up all the political boulders that lay in the way of true American growth and revolution.
This is the very reason why Donald Trump is under the scrutiny and attack of both ‘Republicans’ and ‘Democrats’. It doesn’t matter your political affiliation once you become a boulder. Establishment politicians are all the same once they reach boulder status, no longer looking out for the American people but rather for their own interests. This is also why pro-Trump, anti-establishment candidates like Roy Moore receive lopsided, biased, and maliciously false attacks.
“Nothing has worked. Moore is still in the race,” The Hill’s Alexander Bolton wrote Sunday about the GOP establishment’s efforts to oust Judge Roy Moore from the U.S. Senate race in Alabama.
The article claims the Senate GOP is “running out of options to stop Moore.” It details national Republican leader’s rhetoric and efforts to get Judge Moore, who resoundingly defeated their preferred candidate, appointed incumbent Sen. Luther Strange, in the September primary, to drop out of the race:
Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), went so far as to call for a vote to expel Moore from the Senate should he win the Dec. 12 special election.
Senate Republicans are increasingly resigned to the idea that there’s nothing they can do to stop Moore from coming to Washington, short of hoping that Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate, wins the seat.
The piece also quotes Stanley Brand, an expert in congressional ethics investigations, putting down the idea the Senate might expel Moore even if the people of Alabama elect him:
“You can’t refuse to seat a member who possesses those qualifications. That leaves open the issue of whether you could expel that member,” Brand said.
“If he’s elected by the people of Alabama, the presumption is they knew about the conduct and elected him notwithstanding,” he added. “They’re in a tough position in that they’re sailing into the teeth of a very tough Supreme Court precedent if they try to exclude or expel this guy.”
