    Veteran Republican establishment figure Senator Bob Corker confirmed to the New York Times that the Republican establishment is focused on corralling President Donald Trump and his agenda.

    In an interview with reporter Jonathan Martin, Corker said that most Republican senators realized that Trump was a threat to the general world order.

    ď[They] understand the volatility that weíre dealing with and the tremendous amount of work that it takes by people around him to keep him in the middle of the road,Ē he said.

    After the mild-mannered Senator came unglued on Twitter on Monday, he told the New York Times he was trying to send a message to ďthe good guysĒ ó Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and the White House chief of staff, John F. Kelly.
    What is "the general world order" ?

    His seat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is irrelevant in the Trump Administration's dealings with our Allies and the rest of the world. I've sensed extreme envy on the part of Porker from the very beginning. So 'general world order' is the order as defined by someone who never felt they needed to 'grow in the job', like himself.

    He didn't like Tillerson. He liked Mattis because it was cool to like Mattis. And I don't think he knew squat about Kelly.

    Anyone surprised by establishment republicrat behavior has been living under a rock. For starters:
    * the GOP has never been a party of conservative principle. NEVER, EVER; starting w/Fremont in 1856!!!
    * the current GOP Senate schmucks opposed Trump from day one!!!

    All you can say is that in the past they have been more conservative than the Democrats.

    Yeah they have. Every creature in Nature is born with the conservative-principle. What's mine is mine. Save. Preserve. Invest. Perpetuate. Pass-on.

    Taxed Enough Already could only derive from the GOP.

    TEA never fully embraced Corker.

    You're right on that one. Experienced this first hand. A former relative was in the Mo House of Representatives, than Mo. Senate. The establishment types didn't like him as he was too conservative. They didn't like that he played the banjo and accidentally splashed beer on Ashcroft. They never supported him. You could see the disdain of the country club types. That was perhaps 15-20 years ago. Things never seem to change.

    Rock, unfortunately it's not the case.
    Our only principled Conservative party was the Southern Agrarian Rural Democrats, the party of Jefferson, Madison, Rutledge; among others.
    Sadly that party was fatally tarred w/slavery, never being able to break the iron grip of the Plantation Aristocracy on the South and driving it to economic ruin.
    The Republicans were the party of the northern merchant class, at that time morphing into the industrial class. Today they remain the party of big business (and crony corporatism.)
    Further, the were never free traders being protectionist from 1856, sponsoring and passing more than 60 Excise Taxes, Import Duties and Tariffs from Johnston to Hoover.
    Yet their worst legacy was centralizing government and destroying states rights, which they actively promoted during their 70 year political ascendancy till 1932. Amendments 14,15,16 and 17; an expansive regulatory bureaucracy and an imperial SCOTUS are the testament of history to this legacy.

    The Conservative-Principle?????
    Many precepts, but it's core is that the Natural Law forms the bedrock of
    civilization/culture/society and economic concepts are hardly at the core.

    Sometimes purists have to find some ground with pragmatists or they both lose and the extreme win.

    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
