Josh Hawley Takes ‘Aristocratic Elite’ To Task in Maiden Senate Speech

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley staked out a vision for populists on the right in his maiden Senate speech.

Missouri’s new US Senator Josh Hawley used his first speech on the floor of the U.S Senate to take the plutocratic political elite to task, offering a vision for populists and nationalists in the Republican Party to take up the mantle of working and middle class Americans.

Hawley’s speech called out America’s corrupt political elites- pointing out the shameless disloyalty of America’s ruling economic and political class towards the broader American people.

Today’s society benefits those who shaped it, and it has been shaped not by working men and women, but by the new aristocratic elite. Big banks, big tech, big multi-national corporations, along with their allies in the academy and the media—these are the aristocrats of our age. They live in the United States, but they consider themselves citizens of the world.

The former Missouri Attorney General brought up the example of struggling communities his home state, pointing out the broader trend of well-paying jobs moving out of the country and to the coasts as traditional working-class industry has declined in the American heartland. As wealth and opportunities for a decent career have been siphoned to big cities and sent out of the country, many Americans from states like Missouri have found it increasingly difficult to sustain a quality of life their parents and grandparents had enjoyed.

Hawley’s remarks represent a populist viewpoint rarely heard from in the U.S Senate, previously reiterated by Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions and Arkansas’ Tom Cotton. Hawley’s vision of a people’s conservatism- which places American communities, ways of life, and people as the most precious resources worthy of conservation- stands in stark contrast to the “free market” fundamentalism of the GOP establishment, which places the interests of massive global corporations, shareholders, and the neoliberal elite over that of the American people.

The message that Washington has sent our society is loud and clear- our elites are the people who matter, and those who aspire to join them. Everyone else is unimportant and backwards. And millions of American are left with the sense that the people who run this country view them with nothing but contempt, and value them as nothing but consumers.”

RINO Extraordinaires John Kasich and Jeff Flake Floated as Possible Biden Cabinet Members

These guys have no popular support.

Published

A Politico report has identified alleged “conservatives” that the Biden campaign is considering for Cabinet posts should he win the election. John Kasich and Jeff Flake were two of the most notable.

Other possible Republicans include Meg Whitman, the CEO of Quibi and former CEO of eBay, current governor of Massachusetts Charlie Barker, and former representative from Pennsylvania Charlie Dent.

Whitman and Kasich were speakers at the Democratic National Convention back in August.

The consideration of Republicans, however, is not a universally liked idea among the left. Executive director of Demand Progress David Segal told Politico: “My primary concern is that he involves people in the Cabinet who push back against corporate power and support a massive economic stimulus and the broad provision of health care. Unfortunately, there are no prominent Republicans I know of who are on board with that agenda.”

Director of the Revolving Door Project Jeff Hauser also told Politico that “I don’t understand why someone who says, ‘I am the Democratic Party,’ would then hand benefits to someone who’s not a Democrat.”

Despite not technically being Democrats, Kasich and Flake often seem indistinguishable from Democrats in their rhetoric and attitudes on certain issues. Big League Politics has published stories about Kasich praising the Green New Deal for “asking the right question” and about Flake vowing to vote for Biden because his presidency would be “better for conservatism” than Donald Trump’s.

You know what would actually be better for conservatism? If these guys just quit identifying as Republicans and became Democrats. We want nothing to do with them; let the party of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have them.
