Sebastian Gorka Shows the GOP the Way: ‘It’s Time for Us to Take the Gloves Off and Play Hardball’ [VIDEO]

Sebastian, dude, you know I love ya and all, but I think it’s just soooooo cute how you seem to believe that they haven’t been all along. Get a clue, pardner.

Gorka tells Huckabee it’s time for the GOP to “take the gloves off” and “play hardball” with the Democrats, while noting that the Biden-Harris Regime is holding hundreds of political prisoners in a DC Gulag, with no due process, for attending the mostly peaceful protest in Washington, DC on January 6, 2021.

“So the biggest challenge is for the GOP to grow a spine next year,” Gorka said.

Please, God, not THAT worn-out old trope again. Say it with me: not “spineless,” not “clueless,” not “cowards”—IN. CAHOOTS.

Gorka’s comments come in light of the House speakership position up in the air as establishment favorite, Kevin McCarthy, who many consider a RINO, actively campaigning for the post.

Beginning to get it now? The Repukes don’t “play hardball” with the DemonRats because they DON’T WANT TO. For them, the ‘Rats aren’t the Main Enemy, WE are. The more time you fritter away on blah-de-blah of somehow “taking over” the GOPe, of bending it to our will and bringing it back around to its supposed core principles, the longer it will be before something worthwhile can be done about the whole squalid mess.


Update! Dan Gelernter, fresh off his recent column comparing Trump to TR in certain regards (I posted on that here), closes things out for us.

What should we do when a majority of Republicans want Trump, but the Republican Party says we can’t have him? Do we knuckle under and vote for Ron DeSantis because he would be vastly better than any Democrat?

I say no, we don’t knuckle under. And I like DeSantis. I’d vote for him after Trump’s second term. But not before.

Here’s the thing: It is precisely the expedient view of “well, this person isn’t my first choice, but he’s the best available option who can win” which has allowed the uniparty to take over and ruin the country. We’re letting the Republicans get away with offering us a false dichotomy: A fake non-choice among candidates who are pre-selected for us. The Democrats did this themselves in 2016 when they stole the primary from Bernie Sanders.

You could go even further and say that the two-party system, in addition to preserving systemic stability, has prevented us from having any real say in our own government, except to the smallest extent. The Republicans and Democrats appear like the guard rails on either side of the road they’ve decided we should all be traveling on.

I’m sure I’ll be accused of being a shill for the Democrats here, and as far as I’m concerned that’s as credible as being accused of shilling for Russia these days. I’m not suggesting you have to do what I do, either. But I have no intention of supporting a Republican Party that manifestly contravenes the desires of its voters. The RNC can pretend Trump isn’t loved by the base anymore, that he doesn’t have packed rallies everywhere he goes. But I’m not buying it: Talk to Republican voters anywhere outside the Beltway, and it is obvious that he is admired and even loved by those who consider themselves “ordinary” Americans.

Our best talking-heads and pundits have argued for years that it’s better to win with a bad candidate than to lose with a good one. I used to believe it myself. But look at the results: Until Trump became president, it never even occurred to me that an elected politician could actually do what he’d promised. We’ve been acclimatized to failure, fraud, and theft by the politics of expediency. Year after year, our only choices are “Big Government A” (GOP) or “Big Government B” (Democrat). I used to think Republicans were at least a little more restrained in their spending than the Democrats. But now it’s just clear they spend our money on different things: Democrats give our money to welfare infrastructure (and the drug industry). Republicans give our money to the military-industrial complex (and the drug industry).

If you ask me, Trump’s presidency was much more “American” than it was “Republican.” That’s why it was such a success and why so many of us loved it. Now, if the Republican Party thinks it’s not big enough for Trump, it’s not going to be big enough for me either.

Do I think Trump can win as a third-party candidate? No. Would I vote for him as a third-party candidate? Yes. Because I’m not interested in propping up this corrupt gravy-train any longer. Mitch McConnell says that “providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now, according to most Republicans.” Most Republicans where? Inside his bank account?

There are not enough unprintable words in the dictionary to say everything that statements like McConnell’s conjure up in my mind. But here are a few he might understand: “I’m fed up. And I’m out.”

Yes indeedy. No matter how badly we might sometimes wish things were otherwise, the GOPe is a hopelessly lost cause at this point. That book is now fully and firmly closed, the ship has left the dock and is sailing over the far horizon. The Party is of no further use to Real Americans.

So be it, then. Let the fork-tongued rat bastards do as they will: formally merge with the Commiecrats, wither and die on the vine via total neglect from their former core constituency, attempt to drag out the scam for as long as they can, what the heck ever. They are what they are, and we know more than enough about what they are. Time to start acting on the facts as they’ve been made abundantly clear to us, and then some.

Americans need a for-real second party alternative, no doubt about it. That felicitous outcome cannot be realized so long as we insist on putting Vichy GOpe swine into office, expecting different results.

Yep, I’m done with the R party. I had hoped there might be reform movement that would take hold, but the rot is just too deep.

With the exception of Trump I may never vote for another federal position republican. There are others, just not in NC. Both our senators and both in SC are worthless corrupt hacks. I’d just as soon put an acknowledged marxist in office and get it all over with.

I can probably count on 10 fingers all the national republicans I think can be trusted. Rand Paul is one to go with Trump. That’s my dream ticket, Paul for VP then president in 4 years.

The trouble we have is that we have two governments, an elected one which is out in the open, and an unelected one which is a lot more secretive. We have a clown show up on the Hill – perhaps that’s why Pelosi et al were so upset by the events of January 6th, because that stripped away the fakery, the false dignity, and the guy in the horns wearing the fur put the icing on that cake. The only real functions that that pretend government has are to funnel money to the real government South of the Potomac, in Arlington, Crystal City, and Langley, and to serve as a distraction, misdirecting people’s attention, just like a magician uses misdirection to do his slights of hand. Attempting to overthrow the Clown Show does nothing, the Capitol could be repurposed into a shopping mall, the White House into an upscale bed and breakfast, and the Supreme Court into a temple to Pallas Athena, and the present occupants sent packing, and there wouldn’t be the slightest hitch in the governance of the US. The same can be said for most state and local governments, by the way. It’s a structural problem all the way down, and voting will have no effect on anything.

The only thing that will help at this point, it to take the gloves off, and start either slitting throats, or tying nooses around them and kicking the chairs out.

All lesser attempts are doomed to perpetual failure.

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."

David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
