“A Halloween Horror Story In The People’s House” is the current column, now on The Unz Review, America’s smartest webzine. It tells of how the vampiric Republican regimists and their zombie media are working against the insurgent. The thing is, it’s a true story.
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. … Lost in the victory Ryan scored with feminists was the blow he dealt to the Republican insurgency rising. …
