Unbound and Unprincipled
The GOP Delegates
Secret GOP Meeting of the Establishment Plans to Dump Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
By Scott Rohter, March 2016
This week Donald Trump warned the RNC about the consequences of ignoring the will of millions of Republican voters. After thirty-two State Primaries and Caucuses Mr. Trump is still the clear leader both in terms of actual delegates and in terms of votes won. Mr. Trump has won nineteen States while Ted Cruz has only won seven and John Kasich has only won his home State of Ohio. In terms of actual delegates Donald Trump has won 743 to Ted Cruz’s 545, and John Kasich has only won 143 delegates. The fact is that Donald Trump is the clear leader. He has won almost as many delegates as all of the other Republican candidates combined. Unless something earth shattering happens between now and July Donald Trump should be the Republican Party nominee for President in 2016. How can the Republican Party wind up with any one else as their nominee at the Convention in Cleveland, but trust me, they can…
In the event that Donald Trump arrives in Cleveland with less 1237 delegates, then in subsequent rounds of voting anything can and probably will happen. The power brokers are just as likely to nominate Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio or John Kasich, or they might turn to Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan neither of whom even ran in the Primary rather than nominate Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.
In a private meeting this week at a posh island resort off the coast of Georgia, many of America’s most influential Republican movers and shakers gathered to discuss how they could thwart Donald Trump’s Presidential aspirations. The exclusive, invitation only meeting was hosted by the American Enterprise Institute. In attendance were also some prominent Democrats. Apple CEO Tim Cook was there. Google Co-founder Larry Page was there, and PayPal founder and CEO of Space-X Elon Musk was there.
Republican strategist Karl Rove, Senator Mitch McConnell, Speaker Paul Ryan, and tabloid newspaper publisher and billionaire oil man/real estate investor Phillip Anschutz of examiner.com were there. By the way Mr. Anshutz owns the posh resort where the secret meeting was held. All the prominent Republicans joined in with well known liberal Democrats including New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. to discuss how they could stop Donald Trump from becoming the next Republican nominee and the next President of the United States of America. When you are very rich it really doesn’t matter what political Party you belong to. It was all they could do to discuss how to dump Trump. They all agreed that they would do whatever it takes and spend as much money as it takes to deny Donald Trump the Republican nomination.
This is a real right wing conspiracy. It is not the same cabal of likely suspects alluded to by Hillary Clinton back in 1992 when her husband was running for President. This conspiracy was not created to keep Clinton from becoming President. It was created by members of the Republican Establishment to keep one of their own, Donald Trump from becoming President, and it is designed to thwart the will of millions of Republican voters. It is an insurgency whose declared purpose is to keep a Republican from outside the Beltway from winning the White House in 2016. We know who the leaders of this coup are. They are members of the GOP Establishment. This is the same Establishment which an overwhelming majority of Republican voters have rejected.
Chartered jets could not fly in all the people who wanted to attend this event, but they could only fly the most influential Republican and Democrat donors into this private island resort community. These are members of America’s political ruling class who belong to both political Parties, but there are many lesser known yet influential people who did not attend the meeting, but who will still do the Establishment’s bidding like John Hawkins of Right Wing News or Erick Erickson of Red State who participated in the meeting via telephone. There are others… like radio talk show hosts Mark Levin and John Batchelor, and Mary Kissel of the Wall Street Journal’s editorial board which is owned by Rupert Murdock who also owns Fox News. They can all be counted on to do their very best to undermine the Presidential aspirations of Donald Trump.
Mr. Trump has been receiving death threats lately on the campaign trail. He has to wear a bullet proof vest every time he goes to one of his events, but now his children are receiving death threats too. This is what Democrats do whenever someone or something upsets their apple cart or threatens to challenge their world view. They lash out at whoever opposes them. They disrupted the Democrat National Convention in Chicago in 1969. They exhibited deplorable behavior during the Occupy Wall Street Movement, and now these same liberal thugs and malcontents are coming after Donald Trump’s children the same way they went after Ross Perot’s family… We all need to show our support for Mr. Trump and his family… He is an amazing man to put up with all of this crap, and the surprising thing to me is that the Republican Establishment is just as bad as the DNC who are out to get Donald Trump too.
Now we are told that if Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination then about 20% of Republicans won’t vote for him.. These are the RINOs that have always been in the Party since the days of Teddy Roosevelt. They have been running the GOP for a long time. They would rather vote for Hillary Clinton than vote for Donald Trump.. If Donald Trump arrives in Cleveland with the most delegates, but he is not nominated at the Convention then the RNC better worry about the 40% of Republicans who voted for Donald Trump who will leave the Republican Party if their votes are invalidated. They won’t vote for any nominee selected by the Establishment at a brokered Convention.
