(Before It's News)

¡Jeb! is knifing Rubio. Rubio is taking down Cruz. Under attack from all sides, Cruz is stumbling in Iowa in the Quinnipiac and PPP polls. Pat Buchanan is telling The Washington Post that “the revolution is at hand”:

“FIX: What’s different about today’s political environment from the ones you ran for president in? Are people angrier now?

Buchanan: When I campaigned in North Carolina in 1992, I recall a fellow coming up to me at the airport, saying, “What are you doing in North Carolina, Pat? This is the State of Satisfaction.” Undeniably, there was a true depression in New Hampshire in 1992, and a real sense on the part of conservatives that President Bush had abandoned us and the Reagan legacy and Reagan agenda to cut deals with Congress to raise taxes, spend more on “kinder, gentler” programs, impose quotas, and declare America’s goal to become the creator of a “New World Order.”

What’s different today is that the returns are in, the results are known. Everyone sees clearly now the de-industrialization of America, the cost in blood and treasure from decade-long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the pervasive presence of illegal immigrants. What I saw at the San Diego border 25 years ago, everyone sees now on cable TV. And not just a few communities but almost every community is experiencing the social impact.

The anger and alienation that were building then have reached critical mass now, when you see Bernie Sanders running neck and neck with Hillary Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire and Trump and Ted Cruz with a majority of Republican voters. Not to put too fine a point on it, the revolution is at hand.”

Meanwhile, Trump says he is “evolving” into an economic nationalist and Jared Taylor is doing robocalls in Iowa for a White Nationalist SuperPAC. Who would have thought this is where we would be at today a year ago?

For my entire adult life, the Republican establishment has seemed to be invincible. Now all of a sudden it appears poised to finally keel over and give up the ghost.
