Tucker: President Trump’s hope for re-election

Amidst the predictable stuff, one insight Carlson comes close to having is that the Trumpists do not represent the dominant faction of the ruling class, but an insurgency of neo-realists within the ruling class which recognizes that neoconservative/neoliberal paradigm is not sustainable in the long-run if the Empire is going to survive. He doesn’t recognize the degree of division that exists between the neoliberals and those further to the left, but he comes close to recognizing that the dominant strategy among the ruling the class is to co-opt the present uprising rather than serious repression.
