Concessions won by Gaetz, and his January 6 dream team include guarantees for votes on various bills related to national security, immigration, abortion, China, and the IRS, as well as crucial seats for House Freedom Caucus members on the House Rules Committee and House Appropriations Committee. There will also be a new Church-style committee to investigate deep state criminality, particularly with regard to the FBI’s political bias and influencing of the dubious 2020 presidential election. This is the most consequential victory for conservatism that has come out of Congress in recent memory, and it came during a time when Republicans were being aggressively conditioned to reject populism and fall back into establishment neocon Republicanism out of desperation.
The horrendous fundamentals of the economy, with inflation and the mountain of debt, combined with the institutional and moral rot of this country, are undeniable signs of a late-stage empire headed toward a perilous collapse. As the conventional wisdom to put partisanship aside and unify leads to destitution and widespread despair, the lawmakers who refused to go quietly into that dark night will be the ones remembered fondly in the annals of history. Gaetz will be chief among those remembered as the last voice for sanity and dignity in a government gone mad. Because of his worthy statesmanship and political acumen, Gaetz has rendered himself the heir apparent to lead the America First movement for generations to come.
Do you agree with the writer? Or is such praise of Gaetz and his movement premature?
