Seasoned neocon Lindsey Graham is fuming.
Graham had a heated confrontation with acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan over the Trump Administration’s Syria strategy.
At the Munich Security Conference this past weekend, Graham claims that he cursed at Shanahan and “declared him an adversary.”
Graham had choice words for Trump’s plan to withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria telling Shanahan that it was “the dumbest f—ing idea” he has ever heard.
Graham doubled the down on his opposition to Trump’s withdrawal plan:
“Well, if the policy is going to be that we are leaving by April 30, I am now your adversary, not your friend,” Graham told Shanahan.
Despite the tension between Graham and Shanahan, a Defense Department official told NBC news that the meeting “ended on a positive note”.
Shanahan assumed the role of Defense chief right after James Mattis left the Trump administration, which appeared to be in protest of Trump’s Syria strategy.
Graham’s latest outburst is just a sign of how bitter the DC establishment has become with Trump’s recent decision to pull out of Syria and Afghanistan.
This culminated in a 68-23 vote in the U.S. Senate, where the political establishment stood firmly opposed to President Trump’s withdrawal of U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Syria
Graham and his swamp minions can whine and pout like petulant children all they want, but they must remember that Trump is President and for all matters concerning foreign policy, the buck stops with the Executive Branch.
Trump was elected on an America First platform that emphasizes securing our own border as and not continuing never-ending wars abroad.
However, it has become abundantly clear that the neocon wing of the DC swamp wants Trump to spend all of his political capital on unpopular nation-building schemes. By getting him bogged down in foreign adventures, it will prevent him from pursuing rational immigration reforms and border security measures—the pillars of his winning presidential campaign.
With individuals in the Trump administration like John Bolton advocating for hawkish actions towards countries like Venezuela, Trump must hold firm and adamantly oppose these schemes.
At the end of the day, Trump should re-assert his executive authority and tell neocon knuckle draggers to pound sand.
This is his administration not theirs.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
