In addition to the intense disinformation campaign from corporate media, the disinfecting sunlight from visible alliances is now exposing the entire DC-based UniParty political apparatus.
As apoplectic Paul Ryan supporting ‘conservatives’ gathered today to discuss how to protect the right side penthouse suites of the UniParty, the left-side residents have agreed to support the unified endeavors.
Erick Erickson, famous for his “Jeb Bush is the most conservative governor in history” comment, leads the charge to support Cruz from the right-wing punditry of the UniParty apologists. The insufferable idiocy of the Erickson wing is best highlighted by reviewing the words in their collective statement as presented after their meeting:
[…] we intend to keep our options open as to other avenues to oppose Donald Trump. Our multiple decades of work in the conservative movement for free markets, limited government, national defense, religious liberty, life, and marriage are about ideas, not necessarily parties. (link)
Well, there you have it. Decades of work for free markets, limited government, etc. In the proverbial words of Dr. Phil: “How’s that been working out for ya“? Because it’s been hell on everyone else.
Those “conservative free market principles” (through the past 30 years of UniParty construction) have created horrific trade deals and destroyed U.S. manufacturing and U.S. Jobs – the best evidence of historically stupid policy is always a simple look at the current results.
Those “conservative limited government principles“, (through the past 26 years of UniParty construction), Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama, have given us everything from toilets that don’t flush -to- TSA pat-downs, NSA overreach, 5 trillion dollar wars in the mid-east, 300% bigger government and massive debt/deficits now totaling over $20,000,000,000,000.00 (trillion).
Um, Erick et al, you can keep your so called, f**king “conservative principles”, in the same insufferable locale as the rest of your unified assembly. Go sell CPAC crazy someplace else, because the silent majority are done listening to the sham-wow pitch.
Meanwhile, senator Lindsey Graham has now joined Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and begun openly doing everything possible to assist the Ted Cruz campaign.
Today, Senator Lindsey Graham announced his full-throated support for Senator Ted Cruz, to include giving Cruz access to Graham’s extensive donor and lobbying lists for financial support.
[…] Sen. Lindsey Graham will host a fundraiser on Monday in support of Sen. Ted Cruz.
A draft of the invitation, obtained first by CNN, invites guests to “honor and support a great friend of Israel and the Jewish people,” at a meet-and-greet event that will take place during the AIPAC policy conference in Washington next week. (read more)
Well there you have it.
The UniParty is out in full force and openly visible for all to see – The Republicans and Democrats, the Decepticons, the Neo-Cons, the Progressive Left-Wing and Progressive Right-Wing all united in self-serving common cause.
