The conservative media is so focused on smoke and rhetoric that it is missing the actual important policy outcomes on critical domestic and foreign policy issues. If conservatives would focus on what’s happening rather than just fighting the media over nonsense, they’d understand we are being sold out and so many of Obama’s policies are being continued.
Rather than focus on one incident or speech, conservatives must pay attention to the broad direction and paradigm shift of this administration. It has moved away from the conservatives and the original Trump campaign and has now drifted into the swamp of Tillerson, McMaster, Powell, Cohn, and Jared. While Trump’s speeches in Saudi Arabia and Israel were nice, the policies being promoted by his administration undermine every aspect of his rhetoric. It’s time conservatives finally learn that, with Trump, the actions are completely divorced from the rhetoric. And until and unless we raise our voices, nothing will change.
If we actually focused on policy outcomes, there are a lot of things conservatives could accomplish. At the end of the show we lay out some important initiatives the president could focus on … if he cared to change the narrative.
- How can you claim to fight jihad while promoting the PLO?
- Rand Paul lays down gauntlet to block Saudi arms deal
- Trump admin sells out America to Saudi Arabia
