I'm grateful I don't have to live in the delusion of the past about some "Conservative Movement" that was on my side. I don't believe in "Artificial Conservatism" anymore I'm free.
Back in the 70's religious broadcasting had preachers reading often from the George Will, James Kilpatrick and Bill Buckley columns. The "Conservative Movement" commentators in other words.
On some of the religious and even secular radio stations there were 15-minute "Lifeline" commentaries funded by H.L. Hunt a Texas oilman.
I was getting a message funded by the fossil fuel industry that told me it was "Conservative".
Back in those days Exxon funded full-page newspaper ads touted as "Conservative" in those printed papers we got our daily news on.
Religious Conservative people like me were in the process of being herded into the Republican Party run by the Globalist Rockefeller Republicans regardless of the personalities on the playing field including Ronald Reagan.
It was Reagan who compared politics to the "world's oldest profession" and said politics was "like seeing the world with its pants down."
And recently Mike Pants oops I meant Mike Pence...
It's time for the Ukraine Update Mike Pence very passionate about this conflict that is leading us to Armageddon...
Time for the Biden Update the theme just has to be this Eric Clapton...
There is an alternative to Joe Biden for Democrats to consider Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and what about him?
The Pharma Machine shovels excrement...
We need to find the truth about what going "Green" is really all about???...
And a parting thought China was always Communist whether we kissed up to it or whether we are "de-risking" it...

I was spared from reading “hometown newspapers” in the ‘70’s due to a thing called the Vietnam War. Then upon my return statesside in 1974, I was involved im The Cold War.
In those same years, I must’ve missed those “commentary sermons” because I was not a ‘church going kinda guy’ then.I dif manage to find a love, receive apprval for re-train in a different field, get married, finish tech schoool and move across country yto a new blossoming career, and still be a member of The Cold War.
My old foe, the Soviet Union, is dead, with many of The Soviet Pact states prospering and manifesting their own destiny, thank you very much.
There is a grandfather holding on to delusions of former grandeur, in both America and Russia. The Russian granddad has been attempting to ‘repatriate’ that which, like George Rex III, what he ‘lost’, by force. That is not a big war trigger for me, nor my tax dollars wasted. It is a tribal affair, with the invader now declaring ‘to defend Mmother Russia’.
All the old RINOs have been found lacking and defending ‘the old guard’ in manners that are soo “pre-millenial” that they do not work. The ‘youngbloods’ of Congress want to make changes, and some are more boisteruous and blathering than others, causing divisions that mean nothing but school yard fights.
I will close with this statement. I turn 71 this week, even with shoulxering maladies and frequent connections to dialysis machines, and can still put cognitive complete paragraphs into an online response, better than both the sitting President OR the cackling VP!
Come on, man, you you know know the thing!
Cackle ....culture ... the moment ... cackle!
I'm sorry, the resentment I sense in your description of the rebirth of American conservatism seems distorted by naive expectations of human nature and the type of war we must wage in these times.
We have a government--and a commentariat--of men, not angels or gods. The ones you cite, whose writings I remember from that time, wrote the truth, and did a very good job of it when no one else seemed to know how.
But the truth belongs to God, and we men can only discover and annunciate it when we can, according to our abilities. All the characters cited in your post were crucial in their time in inspiring the larger conservative revolt against the overreach of Big Fed and the middle-class Marxism that infected the news media and multitudes of "public employees" in Washington and in the states.
The voices of the conservative commentariat were fallible. They didn't all keep their eye on the ball after that period, and at in many cases failed to appreciate newcomers to the movement whom they considered uncouth. But to quibble over that fact and deny their achievements is to have an expectation of humanity that sounds, well, a bit like a liberal.
New battles often require new generals. But I owe much to Buckley, Kilpatrick, and Will in particular for their well-reasoned and timely lessons in the true American philosophy of government and Christian culture. Where their typewriters led them after that doesn't erase the good they did, and I'll always be thankful to them for speaking up and taking the arrows.
Clearly they are a part of my experience but in the end I must acknowledge the deeper plan.
Nixon and Kissinger opened up China and now China has to be closed off contained according to the “Conservatives”.
It’s clear that underneath all the Conservative wordsmithing and commentating in my lifetime was government policy that “has gone both ways”.
A great disappointment is the massive uncontrolled growth in government spending that has weakened this nation.
No wonder the need to build a “Great Wall Against China”.
I have the impression we "opened up China" to one-way trade. It seems to me we gave away our manufacturing by letting Chinese (slave-labor) imports undercut lots of American companies into non-existence. And now enough people have noticed that it's time for tariffs again.
I don't recall that Rush (God rest his soul) ever missed a trick or showed up compromised.
Richard Nixon told political journalist Theodore White:
“We can’t run the world without China”
“The Making of the President: 1968” the title of the book this was in.
Inflation was kicking up at the end of the 1960’s how was business to react?
Turn China into a cheap labor zone since inflation was driving everything sky high here in the USA.
