The Morning Rant

"As ace discussed yesterday, some NeverTrump clowns wrote an article for the NY Times coming out (surprise!) in favor of impeachment.

"It's strange, as ace pointed out, to see these idiots, whom have previously renounced any association with the Republican Party, now all suddenly claiming to be Republicans. Obviously they're doing this because 'Republicans favor impeachment' sounds more credible than 'Guys who hate Trump and who flounced out of the Republican Party because of Trump favor impeachment', which lacks 'oomph', even though it is a more accurate description.

"But nobody really cares. And that drives them crazy mad.

"Trump doesn't care. He hasn't really run in conservative circles, so he probably doesn't know who most of them are, let alone care what they think. He doesn't need them, he doesn't want them, he doesn't respect them, they provide him with no insight or guidance, and since he has spent his entire life not needing them, he's not going to start now.

"And if Trump doesn't need them, neither do we. They believe that when Trump leaves in 2024, everything will revert to the way it was before, and guys like Rick Wilson and Charlie Sykes and Max Boot and all of other NeverTrump clowns will recover their lost mojo, that is, their influential positions in conservative circles and the GOP. But I don't think this is going to happen. Trump has changed what it means to be conservative. It's more than paying the grifters, from subscribing to their periodicals, going on their cruises, listening to them speak.

"We will remember the Steve Schmidts and the Bill Kristols and the David Frenches. We will remember how they betrayed us. We will remember that they told us that voting for Hillary was preferable than voting for Trump. We will remember that they pretty much threw in with the Democrats to sabotage and destroy a duly elected President all because of Trump's mean tweets. So they can all f* right off.

"Because Trump has exposed these clowns as just grifters who hope that Pierre Omidyar will throw them a bone just like he did Cap'n Billy Kristol. They have no future in any conservative environment. They'll spend the rest of the careers with Evan MacMullin in their own private circle jerk. And making this happen was perhaps the greatest service Donald Trump could render to us."

Let's Take A Look At The Impeachment Proceedings Thus Far:
