Pat Buchanan writes that in the 1950s there was a term for constant bullying over connections with Russia, it was called McCarthyism. Pat thinks members of Washington’s deep state establishment are today using a fictitious Russia/Trump connection to push the new president out of the White House.
Despite broad appeal both Reagan and Nixon were targeted by the same forces. Pat says pushing Trump out of the White House the same way they did Nixon is what they have in mind.
Trump is hated by this city, which gave him 4 percent of its votes, as much as Nixon was. And the deep-state determination to bring him down is as great as it was with Nixon.
By 1968, the liberal establishment had lost the mandate it had held since 1933, but not lost its ability to wound and kill presidents.
Though Nixon won 49 states, that establishment took him down. Though Ronald Reagan won 49 states, that establishment almost took him down in the Iran-Contra affair.
And that is the end they have in mind for President Trump.
