The biggest thing Trump demonstrated to me since he won the 2016 election & has spent almost 2 full years in office is this:

How much of what I considered the Conservative Movement I'd been a part of since the mid-1980's was really a con game being run by grifters like Kristol.
Don't forget as it went down the drain, clinging to it's 'principles' to the bitter, bitter end, the Weekly Standard's editors had started calling anybody who discussed George Soro's long-established funding of Progressive activist groups 'anti-semetic'.
In case anybody needs a reminder how I felt about The Weekly Standard's demise:…
The biggest problem with the established 'Conservative Media' is that they intensely crave the respect of the DNC Media Complex. They lust for it.

They all want that Strange New Respect that Bill Kristol is right now every publicly receiving.
When your entire motivation for what you do is boiled down to constantly throwing yourself in front of the Washington Post, the NYT's, CNN or MSNBC to insist to them "I'm one of the GOOD Conservatives, I'm not LIKE those other nasty mean Conservatives!" hoping to get good press?
You have become a sad joke.

You're going about being a revolutionary all wrong. You can't beat the Elite Progressive Establishment by constantly seeking to join it & hobnobbing with it.
Andrew Breitbart knew how to expose the DNC Media Elite and also with the people @KurtSchlichter calls 'the FredoCons' [those who lust for that bright shining moment the DNC Media elite will deign to look down from their chariot AND NOTICE THEM!]

He blew their narratives up.
You think Andrew Breitbart ever had any comfortable illusions or hopes about ever being accepted & lauded by the DNC Media Complex?

Yet here's Bill Kristol chortling about his latest fun accomplishments from...MSNBC's studio.
Trump exposed these people and they will never ever forgive him for that.

THIS is what drives much of the Never Trump hatred of our President.
These "Conservatives" had a great con game going. Trump ruined it for them. Now they have to find a new gig.

Well, tough.
A lot of Conservatives were taking it on the chin during the Obama years while these FredCons were more concerned with getting a prime gig on TV talking head shows as the token 'friendly' Conservative.

These grifters weren't fighting for US & it's now more obvious than ever.
"Change has to come slowly, very very slowly if it ever comes at all." we were lectured by these grifters. "We must slowly infiltrate the DNC Elite establishment and then slowly begin exerting our awesome influence as the decades roll by..."

Well screw that.
Andrew Breitbart taught me that slowly infiltrating the DNC Elite Establishment was a futile exercise. He wanted to DESTROY IT and replace it by building a better alternative.

You don't infiltrate them, what happens is that they coopt YOU.
The New Media isn't about slowly infiltrating the Old DNC Establishment Media Complex & then trying to change it from the inside.

We don't have the time for that & it's not effective

We Conservatives are American revolutionaries. We're building a New American Media Complex.
So let the FredoCons futilely try to buy themselves a little more time pimping themselves out to the Old DNC Media Complex for a few dollars.

By the time Trump is done in 2024, DNC Media will have destroyed itself for good.

We'll be over here building something new.
