This week is full of scandals in the media, but it’s also full of Trump policy betrayals that are not being discussed in the media. Worse, they are not being discussed in the conservative media, which is too busy defending Trump from some indefensible actions while he is screwing conservatives on policy. Conservatives are defending him against the media while he has allowed Jared, Ivanka, Dina Powell, Gary Cohn, and H.R. McMaster to create the very policy outcomes that are, ironically, supported by that very same media. What’s the point of incurring such political liability and an electoral wipeout if we are not even getting our policy outcomes?
In this episode of “The Conservative Conscience,” we break down why this strategy of focusing on the lesser of two evils – “but the Democrats are worse,” “we can’t let the Democrats win” — is actually counterproductive to its own stated goals. By pursuing this strategy, we ensure those very Democrats get elected with an even bigger mandate. Isn’t it time we break free and stand consistently and morally on our own two feet? Unless we do so, we will get crushed in the midterm elections, thereby losing so many governorships and state legislatures (forget about Congress!). This will determine redistricting for a decade.
