Trump has now taken down 3 American dynasties
John McCain’s funeral drew three DC dynasties together. George and Laura represented the House of Bush. Bill and Hillary represented the House of Clinton. Dick and Lynne represented the House of Cheney.
Donald Trump brought them all down.The Bushes were the first to go. They ran Jeb! (please clap) for president. Jeb! spent $50 million of other people’s money and campaigned for 485 days. His reward was 3 delegates to the Republican National Convention.
Hillary blew through a billion bucks to be the runner-up in the 2016 presidential election.
This week, Liz Cheney received her four-month notice from Wyomingites that her services as a congresswoman will no longer be needed as of January 3.
For 28 years, from 1981 to 2009, a Bush, Clinton or Cheney was either a president or vice president. Under the second President Bush, they held both offices.
Obama held off Hillary from extending that streak. But he appointed her secretary of state under the axiom of keeping your enemies closer.
Don’t get me wrong. I liked both Bush presidents and I liked Dick Cheney’s grumpiness. I could tolerate Bill but Hillary was a hair-on-fire radical with a high IQ and no wisdom.
The problem with them was they all were beholden to the deep state. The first Bush president once headed the CIA. The deep state saved Clinton by turning over dossiers on key congressmen. When they dragged out impeachment chairman Henry Hyde’s affair from 31 years ago, the Senate received the warning. He was acquitted.
Ridding the country of the Bushes, Clintons and Cheneys is a monumental achievement because Trump beat the odds time and time again.
The 2016 race was supposed to be a Bush-Clinton rematch. When Trump entered the race, the media in New York and Washington blew him off.
A year later, he was nominated.
Hillary was supposed to win in a cakewalk.
He came. He saw. Her political career died.
Taking on Liz Cheney was supposed to be a fool’s mission. She won Wyoming with 68% of the vote.
This week she got 29% of the Republican vote.
To be sure, Trump’s been bloodied. He had to fight a seditious resistance led by Obama for four years. They spied. They lied. They implied. They investigated. They even impeached. Twice.
He beat them each time.
They got desperate. Red China unleashed the Fauci-financed (with taxpayer money) covid virus. This triggered an economic downturn. Trump survived that. The deep state then went on a mail-in mania spree, harvesting 15 million ballots to defeat him. (Voter participation magically hit a 100-year high of 67%. That was 10 points higher than the 57% rate in 2016.) Even then they had to fudge the counting.
Not being president sucked but Donald Trump has bounced back. His primarying of opponents has worked. Trump endorsed candidates win around 94% of the time.
In March, he filed a RICO lawsuit against Hillary and the Democrat Party in Florida, where he will get a fair jury.
The FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago sent the public opinion of the FBI in a tailspin. The raid backfired so loudly that I wonder if the mole at the resort wasn’t John Barron.
Liz “Lincoln” Cheney says she will run for president. There is plenty of money on the table for her to scoop up. There aren’t many votes but if she tries to primary Trump, the press will fawn over her, she will get to travel and she will get a book deal after her defeat.
But the Days of Dynasties have passed. Thank you, Donald Trump. You drained the swamp more than the pundits give you credit.
