Tucker Carlson Establishes Himself As The Chief Advocate For MAGA

Carlson exhibits a very nascent understanding of the situation.  He criticizes not the MAGA agenda but the failure of its primary messenger at implementing it. Further, he rightly recognizes that the president, his administration and the MAGA movement have faced tremendous opposition right from election night two years ago. As it became clear that the procession of Hillary Clinton from Democratic nominee to president-elect had been stopped, forces on both sides of the proverbial aisle, whether conspiring or Democrats taking an active and Republicans a passive role, “withdrew into a defensive crouch,” as Carlson put it, to oppose the new administration’s agenda.

MAGA after Trump

Therefore, it has come to the point that activists in the MAGA movement must move beyond “the man,” establish the campaign for his successor, identify that individual, take over the movement and move the ball (“agenda”) down the field. While I remain hopeful the president is capable of growing into the role for the benefit of the agenda, his continuing behavior has become a distraction to the same.  He should not run for re-election and the movement must stand up and select his successor and move forward, grateful for, but without the man.

Trump Is Lazy

"How can you say he's lazy? Look how much he has achieved in just one year," some will say. Well, nothing much on immigration -- that’s for sure. Tax cuts, deregulation, and conservative judges are all wins that any other Republican would have delivered. What we get with Trump is a lot of smoke and mirrors, lots of declarations of “winning” -- and then when the smoke clears, nothing much has changed. The latest example of Trump's laziness concerns the caravan of illegal immigrants making its way from Central America to the United States. Just a couple of weeks ago, the Trump cultists were all over social media declaring a “win” for the president, because the caravan had apparently been disbanded -- only to learn they have actually reached the Mexico-USA border and are climbing over the existing fence. Heck, the Trump cultists have already declared that peace is reigning over the Korean peninsula – let’s hope we don’t find out the hard way that it was more smoke by having a nuclear weapon land on our shores.

Leave Trump Behind And MAGA On

In the aftermath of a complete betrayal, it is very hard to focus on any silver linings. And 'betrayed' is just the word for how many Trump supporters feel after the second bombing of Syria. It's just the latest of a string of policy reversals: he's open to amnesty and gun control, there's no wall, he's funding Planned Parenthood, and he's even contemplating rejoining TPP. Trump's core supporters are asking themselves whether he is compromised, simply not up to the job of changing Washington, or simply lied to get elected. In the end, it doesn’t matter. Trump is a lost cause. Trying to decipher his latest move or tweet is now a waste of time. Defending him against Mueller, the Deep State, or the Mean Media is just a waste of energy that could be better used to advance the MAGA agenda. So I say: forget Trump. It's time to look for our silver linings and focus on the future.

How 4D Chess Killed MAGA

Sessions' refusal to appoint a second Special Counsel seems to have finally caused many MAGA fans to realize that he is not the right man to drain the swamp - or drain a clogged kitchen sink - but precious months have been wasted. Had Trump supporters backed the president as I did during the summer, the Mueller probe could have been shut down before announcing any indictments. Whatever controversy or political hit firing the Special Counsel would have surely generated would be a distance memory by now. Attorney General Scott Pruitt would have been well on his way of reforming the Justice Department as he did the EPA. The MAGA agenda would be alive and well.
