The familiar partnership of Big Business and social conservatives which has long dominated center-Right politics in the United States appears to be coming undone as the Republican establishment openly declares war against rising Right-wing populists. The Washington Post (one the most biased and unreliable Leftist newspapers in the country) reports that the GOP and Chamber of Commerce are pouring millions of dollars into smearing the reputation of popular Alabama judge and US senate candidate Roy Moore as well as Breitbart editor and former White House advisor Steve Bannon:
Deep-pocketed supporters of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) and other GOP leaders have resolved to fight a protracted battle over the next year for the soul of the party in congressional primaries. “It’s shaping up to be McConnell, the Senate Leadership Fund and the Chamber against Bannon,” said Scott Reed, the senior political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “And we will take that fight.”
But the task will not be easy. Strategists from both sides of the party’s divide say recent focus groups and polling have shown that the frustration within the Republican base has only grown since the 2016 election, stoked by an inability to repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s health-care law.
…The first battle will conclude this month in Alabama, where the incumbent senator — establishment-backed Luther Strange — is fighting uphill against former state Supreme Court judge Roy Moore, a conservative evangelical jurist who has twice been removed from the bench for defying legal decisions. Known for his conviction that Christian teachings are the source of all government authority, Moore has twice been elected statewide to the Supreme Court, but he also lost two primary campaigns for governor, in 2006 and 2010. He bested Strange by a margin of 39 percent to 33 percent in the first round of Senate primary voting last month.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), who came in third in the first round of primary voting, threw his support behind Moore at a rally Saturday. “It is truly amazing the audacity, the ego of the special-interest groups and the political action committees as they try to buy this United States Senate race thinking that with impunity they can run over the people of the state of Alabama,” Brooks declared.
In a sign of fights to come, the two Republican candidates are now competing to demonstrate their disgust with Washington politics. Strange, who was appointed this year to take the seat of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, begins one of his most recent television ads looking at the camera and announcing that he is “mad at Washington politicians.”
Moore describes his campaign as an effort to hurt McConnell, drain the swamp and bring more radical policies to the Senate, including a possible effort to impeach sitting U.S. Supreme Court justices for affirming the constitutionality of same-sex marriages.
…Allies of McConnell have been blanketing the Alabama airwaves to shrink Moore’s polling lead. After spending nearly $4?million on ads before the first primary vote in August, the Senate Leadership Fund plans to blitz the state with another $4?million before the Sept.?26 runoff. So far this year, the super PAC has raised more than $11?million, including a $1?million infusion from hedge fund manager Paul Singer last month, federal filings show.
The Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee have also sunk money into the race to defend Strange. The Business Council of Alabama, working with the U.S. Chamber, plans a major employee get-out-the-vote operation to support Strange by arguing that he will be better for the state’s industry and jobs. The chamber has also paid for a statewide mailer and an ad campaign that will include a spot during Saturday’s Alabama and Auburn college football games. “There is no taking it back,” Reed said. “Alabama is the big enchilada.”
The Senate Leadership Fund is also taking aim at Bannon himself in an effort to tarnish his position as a champion of the Trump political movement. Law released a statement on Tuesday calling Bannon “dead wrong” for using a recent “60 Minutes” interview to criticize Trump’s decision to fire former FBI director James B. Comey.
Big Business has been behind fully supportive of the Progressive social agenda of de-constructing traditional society and replacing Whites with cheap Third World labor. They oppose Confederate heritage issues in the South, embrace the homosexual agenda and fight for open borders and free trade deals. The old alliance with these interest groups against communism makes no sense in the post-Cold War political environment. We see that they are openly hostile to Right-wing populists. The focus at this point should be on crushing the GOP/Big Business establishment and ensuring that the Right-wing of the future will be populist and sympathetic to our ethno-nationalist and traditionalist concerns. If it won’t advocate for our racial and cultural interests then it is of no use to us.
