  • The rising tide of populism and America-first sentiments are finally gaining ground in U.S. politics, and as a result “America-last” senators and congressmen are being forced out of office. Recently, at least two have announced they will not run for re-election, citing the poor chances of winning against candidates whose policies more closely mirror the desires of America’s voters.

A number of Republican senators and congressmen who have publicly criticized President Donald Trump’s agenda recently announced they will not be seeking re-election during the next election cycle, signaling yet another triumph of Trump’s America-first populism, which has divided the GOP between Trump-supporting Republicans and establishment-serving, internationalist Republicans increasingly out of touch with conservative and right-wing voters.

Jeff Flake, Arizona’s junior Republican senator who frequently criticizes Trump, is facing a tough primary challenge from Kelli Ward, a populist, America-first former state senator who has the backing of Trump and former campaign advisor Steven Bannon. Flake recently announced he would not seek re-election due to the fact his failed “conservatism” is no longer popular or viable among traditional GOP voters.

“It is clear at this moment that a traditional conservative who believes in limited government and free markets, who is devoted to free trade, who is pro-immigration has a narrower and narrower path to nomination in the Republican Party,” Flake stated during a speech on the Senate floor announcing his decision to not seek re-election. Flake’s faux conservatism, which is quickly being discredited by Trump’s America-first populism and nationalist rhetoric, is simply out of touch with rank-and-file GOP voters, who have been craving the sort of bold, uncompromising leadership Trump and his movement offer and represent.

“If I could run the kind of race I’d like to run and believe[d] I could win a Republican primary, I might go forward,” Flake later told reporters, underscoring the reality of just how disconnected Flake and other establishment GOP political leaders are.

Trump has harshly attacked his GOP critics since becoming president, including Flake. In August, Trump expressed joy that Ms. Ward would be running against Flake, accurately describing the Arizona senator as weak on borders and crime.

Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker, yet another GOP political leader who has publicly sparred with Trump, also recently announced he would not be seeking reelection in 2018.

“After much thought, consideration and family discussion over the past year, [wife] Elizabeth and I have decided that I will leave the United States Senate when my term expires at the end of 2018,” Corker declared in a statement announcing his decision.

Corker has repeatedly criticized Trump, perhaps most notably in the aftermath of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va., a legally organized and sanctioned rally that was sabotaged by local and state law enforcement and political leaders with left-wing political affiliations.

These political developments potentially represent a stark departure from the failed faux conservatism championed by establishment Republicans, who for far too long have been driven by a globalist, neoconservative, America-last political perspective that is being exposed for the fraud it is by Trump and other America-first populists.
John McCain, the senior senator from Arizona who is a close ally of Flake, demonstrated just how contrary his increasingly unpopular and out-of-touch brand of conservatism is during a recent speech attacking Trump and his positions.

“We have to fight isolationism, protectionism, and nativism,” McCain stated. “We have to defeat those who would worsen our divisions.” He later went on to attack the notion that America could put her political and economic interests first, which more and more Americans are becoming increasingly tired of hearing.

This newspaper, and millions of Americans across the nation, welcome the rise of an America-first, populist political movement, which has been championed so well by Trump thus far.

  • hopefully the deep state zionist mccain will soon be gone from the scene too. with regard to the jews’ global new world order multiculturalist national sabotage program – somebody should point it out that not every country should become a copy of multi-racial america, and i don’t know how many aboriginals remaining in this continent would exactly disagree. massive immigration is the eventual death of genuine diversity.
    except for the jews of course, who all the while maintain their very own country (stolen) for jews only, and they do not accept any of these various breeds of “refugees”. they don’t even want the black ethiopian jews.
    look, washington dc, like hollywood, is a cesspool of systemic corruption. hollywood has to be corrupted too because it has the potential to expose dirty city.
    the swamp will not be drained unless a lot of beltway insiders go to jail for a long, long time, and we can be certain many of them should go to death row. let hillary be the first to hear that cell door slam behind her. then listen to her sing.
    but it’s pretty doubtful..
    if there is ever a real investigation into her and bill’s clinton foundation crimes and podesta’s dnc ring it will necessarily uncover pizzagate, which i’m betting the police authorities existing in dc will never want to expose, since a scandal of that magnitude would show how ineffective they are.
    also, every time i hear about another famous person taking himself offstage i think of the deagle report.

    • McCain is not deep-state. McCain is a front man. Obviously. He’s world famous. The over-use and misuse recently of ‘deep-state’ as fashionable term for simply ‘bad’, shows how much the alternative media is vulnerable to subversion efforts that make them look dumb, and how they are often genuinely not as intelligent or careful as they should be.

  • Jews are the biggest problem for real Americans. Jews do not assimilate; they parasitize. They are atheist, communist, vulgar anti-Christians…not a whole lot different from the Muslim scum in that regard. Jews create and thrive on chaos. Morality, order, ethical behavior are not for them. Blacks I consider a lesser problem and if the jews are gone, so goes most of our social problems. These Talmudic fake jews have been identified in the Bible by Christ. As St. Paul said, ‘in the end times the agendas of evil will be fully revealed.’ I think we’re seeing that now.
