Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I just double checked, and it seems that what happened on Tuesday was a change in the balance of power in Congress, with a lame duck Republican President remaining in the White House. Most of what you refer to happened with a Democratic President after the Republicans had taken charge of both chambers of Congress.

Hillary's failure to set forward a health care plan that could pass Congress was, of course, part of what set it off.

The "departure" for the World of radical right fantasy began, after all, in 1994, not in 2000.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
