Beating back the biggest obstacle to the Trump agenda: Establishment RINOs

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

What’s the biggest obstacle to the Trump agenda? The dishonest fake news media? The self-titled “Resistance” of Democrats, liberals, and those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome? 

Sure, these forces are affecting the progress of the President's populist agenda, but what about the resistance he’s getting from his own party?

Establishment Republicans opposed him until the bitter end during the primary season and have done as little as possible to advance his agenda since he arrived in Washington.

They even continue to push the Russian collusion investigation to undermine President Trump despite little to no evidence.

Watch as I lay out the case and the cast of characters and offer some thoughts about what can be done so Trump and his people can get these establishment and disruptive Republican’s on-side.

I think it’s time to take a page out of the Tea Party playbook, something many inside Trump’s White House, like Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller, will be very familiar with.

I think the Trump Administration needs to fight fire with fire. Ousting some of the trouble makers is a good start. Be sure to communicate with the support base why.

I have a person close to me who is a dual citizen and has lived state side for 25+ years. We almost come unhinged daily with the political situation world wide, with special venom dedicated to the US and Canada. It is hard to admit, but during conversation the other chap said, “I don’t like to say this, but John McCain, fuck off and die”. He has followed McCain for years, and other than his military service and sacrifice, has little use for him. Lyndsey Graham as well. Richard Burr, Jeff Flake and the other anti-Trumpers are troublesome. Then the most corrupt slimy despicable group of individuals, the Democratic Party of the USA, pile on and things are obviously tough. TRUMP vs THE SWAMP…cage match of the century!

I love how Obamacare is made to be Trumps fault. We knew this would happen. The list of establishment Republicans who have been making Trump’s life hell is long, and has been led by McCain for sure. He hates Trump with everything he has. He has got away with a lot of Trump bashing and has had a big influence on negative opinions.
If a highly regarded, literal war hero, POW says so it must be so. I wish McCain the best regarding his health, but he has done a lot of damage in my opinion. He is a gleeful war monger and when they talked Trump into bombing that Syrian air base, McCain could not contain his pleasure. It was the only credit I ever heard McCain give him.
Schumer, Peloisie, and Walker are pretty out there as well, and as far as Ryan is concerned, I wouldn’t give him too much credit. Lets not leave out Lindsey, John’s sidekick. I know there are more, the list is long.

If anyone doubts this then i want them to explain the lack of coverage on the Cosby Trial by the MSM, they barely talked about what would have been a huge story if they were not obsessed with Trump hating.
