The Morning Briefing: Pathetic Republican Squishes Are Learning It's Still Trump's Party

Trump’s GOP Keeps Chugging Along

Happy Monday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Anyone who tells you that bacon and eggs are bad for you is a communist.

We should probably celebrate the fact that Grandpa Gropes has been in office for almost two weeks and none of us are in gulags yet. Our neighbors to the north are giving us a sneak preview of how that will eventually happen.

There has been no shortage of concern-trolling about the future of the Republican Party by the leftist leg-humping mainstream media hacks lately. In their fevered telling of the tale, the only hope for the continued functioning of the GOP is for the party to embrace the invertebrate Romney/Murkowski/Cheney wing and become Democrat Lite forever.

Yeah…no.

We’ve examined the continued role in the Republican Party of one Donald J. Trump here for a while.

The moderate/left/LincolnProjectPedo wing (all 35 of them) of the GOP is insistent that the Republican hoi polloi reject all things Trump and do whatever they can to make The New York Times say nice things about them on occasion. Their dream GOP is a grandstanding bunch of mush that never really accomplishes anything or directly addresses the concerns of the people who elect them.

What Trump’s presidency did for us regular Republicans was show us that the party still has some fight in it. We don’t need to suck up to the Democrats in the name of useless bipartisanship. Trump made it clear that the representatives in this representative republic are still working for us and we need to remind them of that.

There are a few in the House and Senate who don’t seem to get that.

It’s going to leave a mark.

The idiot Republicans who have jumped onto the Impeachment Train with the Democrats are finding out from their constituents that their turncoat ways are not at all appreciated back home:

GOP lawmakers who joined forces with House Democrats to rush through a second impeachment effort against President Trump are facing intense backlash from fellow Republicans back at home.

Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC) has now been censured by the South Carolina Republican Party for his role in the Democrats’ latest impeachment push against President Trump. More troubling for the GOP lawmaker is the fact that his censure push began at the grassroots level in a county within the congressman’s district.

“Trying to impeach a president, with a week left in his term, is never legitimate and is nothing more than a political kick on the way out the door,” said South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Drew McKissick. “Congressman Rice’s vote unfortunately played right into the Democrats’ game, and the people in his district, and ultimately our State Executive Committee, wanted him to know they wholeheartedly disagree with his decision.”

Rice is the most recent addition to the Republican Turncoat Censure Club, joining Wyoming’s Liz Cheney and Michigan’s Fred Upton.

What the squishes don’t understand is that President Trump completely remade the Republican Party and that it’s a good thing. The Obama-era GOP was a useless showboating group that could preen for the cameras but utterly failed at doing anything that its voters wanted it to do. It was the party that gave us the thoroughly execrable Mitt Romney as a presidential candidate.

Donald Trump may have left Washington but he hasn’t left politics. He definitely hasn’t left the Republican Party. If the GOP is to survive the totalitarian onslaught it’s facing from the Comrade Joe Biden administration it is going to need a spine. It can’t get that from the jellyfish members in its ranks who seek only to ingratiate themselves with the Democrats and the mainstream media.

Let the purging begin.
