英语咬文嚼字 The Crazy Logophile

beltway
noun, often attributive

Meaning
A. a highway skirting an urban area
指环绕城市的公路,尤其环绕华盛顿D.C.公路 - The Capital Beltway : 是一条环绕华盛顿的环形道路(整条道路被正式称为495号州际公路 )。

B. capitalized : the political and social world of Washington, D.C.,
第一个字母大写,政治俚语,主要指华盛顿的政治利益和政治生态(政客, 政治说客 和政府分包商等)

Origin
Beltway — AKA, “Inside the Beltway”. It refers to anything on the inside of Interstate 495 that circles Washington D.C. and anything of interest to those working and living in that area; namely politicians, lobbyists, and federal contractors.

It was first thought to be used in the New York Times in 1975. And no, it’s not what holds up the pants of a bulbous congressman. (by Daniel Ganninger / medium.com)

Examples
The lobbyists, consultants and pundits inside the Beltway are obsessed with recent data that show Mr. Trump losing to several Democratic challengers. But surveys taken more than a year before Election Day are meaningless. More important, Mr. Trump benefits from incumbency and continued economic recovery, and he’s riding a wave of national populism that has yet to crest.

Apr 18, 2018 - It is mostly waving a wish into reality by Mr. Trump's Beltway-centric supporters. (wsj.com) April 18, 2018 6:44

The answer is simple: The national media establishment, like many of Trump’s Beltway critics, are seeking a way to disqualify him from holding national office.
