How do you “Take Trump Out”?

The Republican Establishment, read Leftist/Fascists with “R’s” behind their names, have a single mission tonight as demonstrated by Jeb!’s crying, and calling Trump names, over how Trump is ruining everything…

So what do they do?

1. Attack, Intimidate and Directly Threaten his ‘Big Money Donors’ to get them to withhold their donations?

2. Convince the 26% of the Republican Electorate that he’s terrible because he doesn’t support Illegal Immigration and Big Government?

3. Expose all the ‘skeletons’ from his past, and probably his present, that make him less than a role model?

Seriously…?

None of the above will have any effect on Trump’s current Popularity…  frankly, Trump could show up, smile, and say absolutely nothing, waiting silently until after the debate to say whatever he wants in front of the 50 microphones pushed in his face.  And, he would still lead in the polls.

This is why the Establishment HATES Him.

The only hope any of these candidates have is to sound More Reasonable and promote Policy which Trump Supporters agree with…

This is why the Establishment HATES Him.

You will be watching other serious candidates like Cruz, Paul and Carson. Guys who otherwise would have already been marginalized leaving only Jeb! on Stage…

This is why the Establishment REALLY, REALLY, HATES Him.

The only person who can “Take Trump Out” is Trump, and then… only when he’s ready.

And boy oh boy do the Rove RINO’s HATE Him for it.

Why Donald Trump is Fun

And, Why the Establishment Republicans absolutely Hate Him…

I tapped out a post well over a year ago stating the Establishment Republicans were going to flood the Primary Field with candidates in order to secure the nominee in the early East Coast Primaries.

And, lo and behold, that is what they are doing.  Flooding the Field

However…

Enter Trump!

(If I had a laugh track it would be playing now.  Just imagine one.  Imagine the one they used in M.A.S.H.  I like that one.  It’s heartier than the ones they use now.  More of a Belly Laugh than a Millennial Snicker.)

What is happening here?

Well… in a Diomedes kind of way, the Republican Establishment has set up a scenario they thought would guarantee them the candidate of their choice.

The have added, read ‘funded’, enough hopefuls in an effort to dilute the field to such a degree as to ensure all the support needed is delivered to secure their Guy, in this case Jeb!, the slot.  The Boehner’s and McConnell’s of the world also know that the healthy Libertarian, ‘Conservatarian’, movement is  strong in the Western States… and it must be crushed.

So they have orchestrated a Scheme making sure the early primaries continue to occur on the East Coast which not only lean heavily in favor of Liberal Republicans but allow Democrats to cross over and vote in the contests.  The latter part of this plan was considered ‘brilliant’ as Hillary was thought to be the anointed Democrat Candidate leaving plenty of Liberal Leftists to vote for Jeb!… kind of RINO Insurance.

But the Establishment is being thrown to the Mares and consumed by their own plan.  Que the circus music.

Here Comes Donald, P.T.Barnum, Trump!

And here’s where it get’s really enjoyable…

1.  Trump has his own money!

What!?  Last Election Cycle the press was lamenting that 1 Billion Dollars had been spent by the Candidates combined… and Trump has Ten Times this amount at his disposal!  Why is this funny?  Because Candidates are ALWAYS CONTROLLED by those whose money they need.  And the Establishment has always used this fact to do as much controlling as possible.  They can’t do this with Trump.  (Uh Oh…)

2.  Trump is an A-Hole!

How is that Awesome?  The Donald openly admits he is no saint.  He admits he pays as little in taxes as possible… just as we all try to… and he does not set himself up on a moral pedestal from which his opponents can push him off of.  The guys is a jerk who fights back.  And, we like this.  (This role had previously been held by Chris Christie.)

3.  Trump is well liked ON THE EAST COAST!

BwwaaHahhaahhhaaaaahahahahahaaaahhaa….  The RINO tactic of front loading the Primaries in States where they can get as many Soft Socialist and Fascist Republican voters to propel their chosen Candidate to the Nomination is being undermined by a Well Liked Rich A-Hole whom they cannot Control.  (The Irony is palpable.)

What is the ultimate effect?

It’s my assessment that Trump being involved in this election will do a couple of things.  First, it will demonstrate to the Conservatarians that being outspoken while not trying to secure a mantle of ‘piousness’ works well and is received positively by the voters.  Second, Trump’s presence will keep the press from painting a picture of Jeb! “running away” with the nomination while only garnering 20% of the party’s support.  (That’s 1 out of 5 republican voters for you useful folks.)

In the End, having Trump in the Deal is saving some of the oxygen for those serious, Anti-Establishment, candidates fighting for the soul of the Republican Party.

And those currently in control of the Republican Party Hate Him for it.

Hate, Hate, Hate him.


Flooding the Field

So Concerned is the Establishment Wing of the Republican Party that a TEA Party (Uphold the Constitution as it’s Written) Type may get the Nomination for 2016 that they are Preparing to Flood the Field with Primary Candidates.

This is being done in the Hopes of a Repeat of the 2008 Primary where the Open Republican Primaries along the Liberal Establishment Controlled East Coast will give us with the Establishment Nominee… Again.  Remember John McCain?  I do.

Could this Backfire?
When you’re playing this Game within your own Party… Yes, it could.

If there is no serious Challenger for the Democrat Nomination then the “Cross-Over Vote” could find its way to both Establishment and Libertarian/TEA Party Candidates.

If the Field is too Flooded the Establishment Vote will be Diluted allowing a TEA Party/Libertarian Candidate to move ahead.

In today’s Political Environment the Masses are slightly better educated and much more Cynical of Candidates and their practices talking points designed to lure their votes.

So, yes… it could be a gamble.

But Desperate Times call for Desperate Measures.  And the Establishment Republicans are Desperate.

So We’ll be witness to a putting all Your Eggs in an East Coast Basket once again.

Revenge of the TEA party?

While drinking a creamy pint of Guinness this morning, and deciding how I was going to destroy yet another corned beef brisket something occurred to me.
In the back of my head I was still wondering why the Establishment Republicans were spending all of their political capital trying to end the primaries prematurely… and there it was.
Governors appoint the delegates that go to the convention! (Stop and re-read that sentence.)
OK. There are currently 29 republican governors, many of whom were swept in, or re-elected, during the TEA Party takeover of the house of representatives. Are you with me so far?
You can count on the Democrat governors sending, let’s just say not the most fiscally conservative republican delegates to the convention. But the Governors owing their election to the “Taxed Enough Already Party” will most likely send delegates reflecting a fiscally conservative mindset. These delegates have the ability to vote however they see fit and will most likely favor a candidate with a verifiable fiscally conservative track record… it’s hard to find one of those in Massachusetts.
With this in mind it is not difficult to understand why 65% of the republicans continue not to vote for Romney and polling data regarding the “fear” of a brokered convention is declining the more people learn.
If this goes the distance it will be fantastic to watch.
I’ll need to buy more Guinness!


Keep on goin’!

Why would a brokered convention be exactly what needs to happen? Well…

let me explain a few things for those of you who are buying into the idea that the nominee should be chosen by now.

First, if that were the case then there would never be a need for a convention.
Second, the Primary process is the way we handle “multiple party” issues without having multiple parties and ending up with leaders like Hitler.
Third, the ultimate nominee will have to adopt the party platform which is hashed out during the primaries. It is this process that determines what the base wants.

Since all you are hearing are the negatives regarding this process from no less notable figures as Barbara Bush and Dick Morris I will not bore you with listing them.
But what I will do is tell you the enormous benefits outside of what I listed above.

First, having multiple candidates stay in through the convention prohibits the Democrats from focusing their energy and money demonizing a single specific individual thus watering down their message.
Second, it allows the candidates to keep the President on the defensive from multiple angles leaving him to try to answer various attacks rather than a single foe.
Third, what better way to create huge ratings for a convention than to have it brokered? So… what better way to get conservative messages out for the public to consider? Nobody stops to watch a party, but everybody stops to watch a fight. Even the Leftists will be tuning in… and they might learn something… doubtful, but there is a chance.

Finally, this election will be about Obama… it has long been my opinion that we could run Bozo the Clown and win given the horrible results from our current presidents socialist “solutions”. Whomever the nominee is will win regardless. It is certainly no threat that we might not know who that is until September 1st… in fact it is to our advantage. That would give the Leftists less time to create issues that don’t exist like a “war on women”.  (I seem to remember all of these brilliant political advisors telling us over the years that no-one pays attention until three weeks out anyway.  So what has changed?)

I think I can speak for all of us when I say the base doesn’t really need to know these candidates any better than we currently do given the 20+ debates and endless surges and coverage we have enjoyed over the last number of months.
Stop buying into the conventional wisdom… or in this case the non-brokered conventional wisdom.

If you’re thinking clearly… a brokered convention is the answer… and we may finally get it right.
