Increasingly it appears the latest round of Bush Betrayal
really has unleashed a seismic event in American politics. Consider this posting
at the excellent Lonewacko
blog (long distinguished for powerful patriotic work on the immigration disaster). Lonewacko
is reporting yesterdayâ€™s email from NumbersUSA
on the prospects for defeating Tuesdayâ€™s cloture vote (7 to 10 more votes needed). But the link used to display the email
is actually a posting on FreeRepublic
FreeRepublic, of course, notoriously banned VDARE.com links several years ago, and generally suppressed discussion of immigration policy, including deleting postings. That Lonewacko, which knows what it is doing, feels confident in using the link (e.g. that it will not be removed), indicates a major change has taken place.
The Republican base has burst into rebellion and the Beltway types are not going to be able to control this.
(P.S. Yes, I know the title shows my age.)
