As I have explained for months now, President Trump has governed as a mainstream conservative:
“WASHINGTON — The Trump administration has pursued policies that have hewed remarkably close to the recommendations of a leading conservative think tank, the Heritage Foundation, which found in a new review that nearly two-thirds of its ideas had been carried out or embraced by the White House over the past year.
Not one to dwell on the details of governing, President Trump has shown a considerable degree of deference to groups within the conservative movement like Heritage, leading to a rightward shift in social, environmental, immigration and foreign policy.
The results, Heritage found in its review, exceeded even the first year of Ronald Reagan’s presidency, whose tenure has long been the conservative gold standard. …”
Donald Trump’s First Year was more conservative than Reagan’s First Year. Five Thirty Eight has also shown that voters have noticed this shift toward conservatism:
Matt Heimbach says To Hell With The Rightwing!
“A recent White Nationalist article stated “But even if we don’t beat GOP cucks in primaries, we need to continue to vote GOP.” There is nothing more cucked than being racially aware, acknowledging that the political establishment is actively working to genocide us, and then saying we need to back said genocidal traitors in elections because they have an R next to their name.
The GOP Establishment is not our friend, they are not “almost there”, they actively are promoting open borders, war against the DPRK and Iran, continued support for Israel, Free Trade, and now even DACA; to support these traitors in any way is tantamount to treason in every regard. …
The best thing for us is to allow the GOP to get annihilated in all future elections. The GOP has made clear that Trumpism, a form of civic nationalism, is too much for them to bear. The GOP will sabotage their own candidates like Judge Roy Moore when the Senate majority is on a knife’s edge. They betrayed Trump and did everything they could to stop him from winning the election and then blocking his agenda, and they will side with Democrats every single time in condemning everything from our Confederate statues to actual enforcement of our immigration policies. …
Republicans should suffer for their anti-White policies. The lesser of two evils is still evil, but when you consider their Zionist military policies, their fighting for more profits for multinational corporations and less assistance for marginal families, and more migrant laborers for their sweatshops, there’s not a coherent case that the Republicans are the lesser evil. …
A revolutionary and secessionist movement must take the position of building local political control of seats, and Abstentionism on the Federal level. To send a representative to Washington D.C is to give legitimacy to Federal government ruling over us. Our people are not fighting a culture war, we’re fighting an occupation …”
We will see how 2018 plays out. We’ve been promised the “full Trump” who has yet to reappear. If anything, I expect the full Trump to be campaign mode in an election year.
The returns are already in on 2017. This has been a disappointing conventional Republican administration, not anything close to a revolutionary ‘nationalist populist’ insurgency. There were a lot of promises made to that effect during the campaign which have been filed away or forgotten.
