6 Shocking Ways that Establishment Republicans are Advancing the Deep State

Craig Huey Deep State 3 Comments

The Deep State is a dangerous political entity that wants to:

  • expand the government
  • hold onto power
  • resist change

The Deep State is typically promoted by those with a liberal agenda.

But there are what are commonly called “Establishment Republicans” who are also advancing the dangerous ideology of the Deep State.

These are leaders, consultants, and elected officials in the Republican party who are doing whatever they can to resist who Trump is, what he stands for, and how he is changing America.

Here are 6 ways that these liberal and moderate Republicans are advancing the Deep State…and what we can do about it.

  1. Refusing to endorse Trump.

Many Establishment Republicans were horrified that Trump was nominated and elected.

They refuse to endorse Trump in an effort to undermine his authority and prevent his programs of change from being implemented.

But their stances have backfired—in the 2016 primaries, the majority of the Republican assembly candidates and state senate candidates who openly criticized Trump were not elected.

  1. Causing division in the Republican party.

Establishment Republicans who are advancing a Deep State agenda are causing disunity and discontentment in the GOP by stirring up division.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake announced on the Senate Floor that he wouldn’t be seeking reelection in the upcoming election, blaming Trump in the process. Flake’s attacks on the President were met with mixed responses from the Republican party.

  1. Resisting policy change.

Establishment Republicans are resistant to change…and especially the reforms of Trump.

They don’t want individual defenders of freedom and free enterprise in power…they want an alternative to the Democratic party.

  1. Betraying Republican values.

California Republican leader Chad Mayes is just one example of an Establishment Republican who has betrayed the party’s values of freedom, principles, and cultural change.

While President Trump has withdrawn from the wasteful battle against climate change, Mayes decided to align with leaders who wanted to extend the cap-and-trade program. This policy forces companies to buy permits to release greenhouse gases, destroying businesses, spiking prices, and increasing restrictive government regulation.

Mayes has since stepped down from his role as California State Assembly Leader—because of his betrayal of values. Unfortunately, “turncoat” Republicans still run the Assembly in California…and are still resisting change.

John McCain is another example of a Republican who has betrayed pro-freedom values by fighting again and again to preserve Obamacare. McCain said he supported repeal and replace…but in the end cost the one deciding vote to keep the broken Obamacare alive.

  1. Drain the swamp!

It’s up to us to put pressure on Republican politicians to stand by their values and principles…not to advance the dangerous, ideological agenda of the Deep State.

We need to drain the swamp…to get rid of leaders who resist change and look to their own self-interest, not the interests of their constituents.

  1. Best Chance: Republican Primaries

The upcoming election in 2018 is your best opportunity to put people of principle in power.

I encourage you to vote in the primaries. Only a fraction of people who vote in the Presidential election vote in the primaries…that means your vote is far more powerful.

On average, 25% of eligible voters cast their ballots in the primaries. The rest stay at home and don’t mail in their ballot. That means the power of your vote is multiplied by four. For example, if 100 people vote in an election, your 1 in 100 vote is worth only 1%. But if 25 people vote in an election, your 1 in 25 vote is worth 4%.

When you show up to vote and cast your vote for candidates who are pro-family, pro-faith, and pro-freedom, there’s a much better chance of seeing those men and women winning the election.

It’s your best chance to drain the swamp and to see your values and beliefs upheld by your leaders.

  1. Regrettably, today, there are various Republican “types”. Not sure what type you are, Craig. Since the 70’s my type is Catholic then Constitutional Republican and fiscal conservative. For clarity purposes, a “Reagan” Republican that still aligns with the 1984 Republican Preamble. You should read it as its as suitable today as it was in President Reagan’s campaign and White House stay. I really wish Trump would. As it stands, Trump and people like you need to be less divisive.

    I voted for President Trump for unity purposes; he was not my first choice. The largest reason was he spent the majority of his life as an Independent. We can see by behavior and actions, his Independent spots haven’t changed all that much, but worse, he’s always been a “swing voter”; which I loathe because like Democrats, they can’t be trusted. And I won’t forget, Trump is a Republican only because he couldn’t get votes or funding running as an Independent or Democrat…his words.

    As to your list, I take issue with it. Why? It makes too many assumptions based on choices, not taking into account why those choices were made and whether or not they reflect constituent desires. Thus, I see your list as no different than many other divisive blogger lists; furthering party division, as opposed to seeking unity.

    We don’t all have to agree to find and enjoy unity. But we should agree on the greater party purpose, values, and ideals. One thing you won’t see me doing is supporting extreme demands of masquerading Independents and Libertarian Conservatives that seek control of the Republican Party. If that means I may be seen as aligned with older style Republicans, I am good with that, as they are less divisive and maybe moderate on some issues, like President Reagan; a hero of mine.

    Last, your list is as boring as hearing deep-seated Independent and Libertarian conservatives cry “drain the swamp”. Comments like that appeal to people that don’t care to understand how our successful Congress actually operates, and they dislike choices that are different from their own. Like radical Democrats, they want what they want. I am not stretching to say both extremes are bad for America. I am surprised and disappointed you don’t appear to see or value that.

    The Republican party and America need unity. Leading with “Deep State” and following with drain the swamp’ won’t lead to unity; it suggests exactly the opposite. Have a good day.

  2. Well, tell me, where are those Republicans in office you are talking about! Few and far between as far as I can see. I want to have a choice of people to vote for that have the public in mind, that are willing to fight tooth and nail for what I and thousands of others believe in, not those that promise one thing to get the votes, then turn the other way once they are in office; and not go and overturn the majority vote because they don’t like it. Tell me, where are these politicians, judges, etc etc etc. If you call devisive by draining the swamp deep state, then so be your views, but I am with Craig on this one.

    1. You’re welcome to your thought if that’s what it was. I disagree. What’s common with people that post views such as yours is what you did here; better yet, what you did not do here, is common. You asked me for further substance, yet you provided nothing, just agreed with Craig’s broad claims loaded with buzz words and a pretty list.

      One of the reasons I was not a Trump supporter from the beginning Divisiveness is ongoing with Trump supporters, Independents and Libertarians. They seldom if ever come to a discussion with the substance that’s worthy of acknowledgment by critical reasoning people, but make lots of noise.
