BLP’s McCabe tells ‘Politics and Profits’ host Rick Amato Alabama race proved Steve Bannon’s strength

Published

A national political reporter for Big League Politics discussed with “Politics and Profits” host Rick Amato the fallout from the special Senate election in Alabama and what the victory by Democrat G. Douglas Jones portends for Stephen K. Bannon and the Republican Party.

McCabe said in the short-term the loss by Republican Roy S. Moore was good news for Republicans, who did not want to have to constantly explain their relationship to a man accused of sexually awkward relationships with teenage girls, but in the long-term, the race opens up a rift in the GOP that had been papered over.

There are Republicans, who want all the power in Washington, and others, who do not want the power in Washington, and these two factions can no longer co-exist in the same party, he said.

“They’re going to have to figure out: either they are going to have a Republican Party or they are not,” he said.

If anti-Trump senators, congressmen and governors do not get in line behind President Donald J. Trump, it is a situation that cannot be sustained, he said.

“I think you are going to see the party break up and become something else,” he said. “That ‘Trump’ Republican Party will survive and then you are going to see the establishment guys, sort of, meet up with the Democrats, where they are more comfortable–they all went to the same schools, they all hang out together, their kids are all on the same soccer teams.”

Amato asked McCabe if he sees new parties with new names.

“Everything comes to a head in 2020, depending on how 2018 goes,” he said. In 2018, all 435 congressmen and one-third of the Senate is up for reelection.

Amato then asked if Stephen K. Bannon is no longer a force to be reckoned with politically because he championed Moore and the election in Alabama had become a key test of his ability to deliver electoral victory.

“People, who paid close attention to that race in Alabama, do not want to be on the wrong side of Steve Bannon,” McCabe said. “Imagine, the movie script you’d be handed with a candidate with liabilities of a Roy Moore–that became a race because of Bannon–the way he carried Moore? It is a miracle he was as close as he was.”

115 House Republicans Sign Onto Effort to Remove Neocon Liz Cheney as GOP Chair

Cheney’s unfit to lead.

Published

on

A majority of House Republicans have signed onto a letter expressing no confidence in GOP conference chair Liz Cheney, following the neoconservative Wyoming member of Congress’ vote to impeach President Donald Trump.

115 Republicans have signed onto a ‘no confidence’ letter, a strong majority of the House’s GOP caucus of 211. Ten Republicans moved to betray President Trump on the sham impeachment, which is only slated to proceed in the Senate now that Trump has left office. The Senate lacks the jurisdiction to convict a private citizen, although Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer hopes to bar the 45th President from running for federal office again.

Cheney has since been officially censured by the Carbon County, Wyoming Republican Party, with the latter expressing their strong disapproval in Cheney’s betrayal of President Trump.

Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, now lacks the support to act in a leading capacity of the Republican Caucus. She’s already attracted a primary challenger, Wyoming State Senator Anthony Bouchard.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has declined to move against Cheney, opting to keep her in a position of leadership even after betraying the President and her party. Establishment neocons such as Cheney are hoping to move the Republican Party back to a globalist vision of ‘invade the world, invite the world,’ attempting to sweep President Donald Trump’s governing vision of “America First” under the rug.

Cheney Republicanism no longer represents a way forward in the Republican Party.
