Drawing a line in the sand, Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell is hatching a scheme that should Donald Trump become the 2016 Republican Party nominee, the Republican Party will sacrifice the 2016 Presidential election to Hillary Clinton.
McConnell’s nefarious scheme which by the way is a blatant violation of the Republican Party pledge, has nothing to do with saving the Constitution which the Senator Majority Leader and leadership despises or acting in the interest of the nation.
The scheme, hatched a Progressive elitists is solely intended to secure the power structure of the Republican Party establishment, its power brokers, lobbyists and donors, all of which threatens to crumble under a Trump presidency.
As reported in an article by The New York Times (a must read), Karl Mr. Chalkboard Rove, pointed out at governor’s luncheon nine days ago in Washington, D.C. that it is not too late to take Trump out.
As Trump moves closer to becoming the nominee, the treachery deepens.
….Mr. Rove, the master strategist of George W. Bush’s campaigns, insisted it was not too late for them to stop Mr. Trump, according to three people present.
At a meeting of Republican governors the next morning, Paul R. LePage of Maine called for action. Seated at a long boardroom table at the Willard Hotel, he erupted in frustration over the state of the 2016 race, saying Mr. Trump’s nomination would deeply wound the Republican Party. Mr. LePage urged the governors to draft an open letter “to the people,” disavowing Mr. Trump and his divisive brand of politics….
Scratch that proposal.
In the meantime, with the wind at his back, voters by his side and Super Tuesday on the horizon, Trump has gone on to win New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada invoking fear in the hearts of establishment fat cats such as Mitch McConnell who is now declaring all out war against the anti-establishment candidate.
In public, there were calls for the party to unite behind a single candidate. In dozens of interviews, elected officials, political strategists and donors described a frantic, last-ditch campaign to block Mr. Trump — and the agonizing reasons that many of them have become convinced it will fail. Behind the scenes, a desperate mission to save the party sputtered and stalled at every turn….
There you have it. While there are calls for the Republicans to unite behind one candidate, the leadership believes that the power to choose the candidate does not lie with the people.
For McConnell and cohorts, none of this is about saving the future of the nation; it is about saving the party, the lifestyle and power structure of fellow elitists who have long forgotten that they were elected by the people to represent our interests.
…Efforts to unite warring candidates behind one failed spectacularly: An overture from Senator Marco Rubio to Mr. Christie angered and insulted the governor. An unsubtle appeal from Mitt Romney to John Kasich, about the party’s need to consolidate behind one rival to Mr. Trump, fell on deaf ears….
Are you kidding, the GOP establishment actually expected that a call from Marco Rubio to Chris Christie would bring Christie running like up lapdog into the fold?
Condescending, out of touch and everything that disgusts Americans with the Republican Party establishment!
….At least two campaigns have drafted plans to overtake Mr. Trump in a brokered convention, and the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, has laid out a plan that would have lawmakers break with Mr. Trump explicitly in a general election….
Moreover, this too shall fail along with along with any attempts by Senator Ted Cruz to collaborate with the establishment in the take down of Donald Trump. Oh wait, Cruz did so already on Thursday night when he and Marco Rubio double-teamed Donald Trump.
Message to Cruz: Suicide is fatal but then this is not about Cruz becoming the nominee either.
…While still hopeful that Mr. Rubio might prevail, Mr. McConnell has begun preparing senators for the prospect of a Trump nomination, assuring them that, if it threatened to harm them in the general election, they could run negative ads about Mr. Trump to create space between him and Republican senators seeking re-election. Mr. McConnell has raised the possibility of treating Mr. Trump’s loss as a given and describing a Republican Senate to voters as a necessary check on a President Hillary Clinton, according to senators at the lunches….
The Republican Party establishment is no longer hiding the fact that they are in bed with the left.
…Despite all the forces arrayed against Mr. Trump, the interviews show, the party has been gripped by a nearly incapacitating leadership vacuum and a paralytic sense of indecision and despair, as he has won smashing victories in South Carolina and Nevada. Donors have dreaded the consequences of clashing with Mr. Trump directly. Elected officials have balked at attacking him out of concern that they might unintentionally fuel his populist revolt. And Republicans have lacked someone from outside the presidential race who could help set the terms of debate from afar….
Surely, it does not help that Governors Chris Christie of New Jersey, Jan Brewer of Arizona and Maine’s Governor Paul LePage, who just nine days ago trashed Trump has endorsed the candidate.
As for Mitch McConnell’s collaboration with Progressive counterparts on both sides of the aisle, McConnell along with John Boehner and other members of the GOP leadership spent the past eight years working with Barack Obama building the platform that is bringing about the infringement of our liberties and fundamental transformation of America.
It, therefore, makes perfect sense that the GOP leadership would double down on their efforts by conspiring with Hillary Clinton to take the White House in 2016 against Donald Trump, Ted Cruz (yes, Ted Cruz) and the American people.
Finally, the Progressive establishments of both parties, including Trump’s opponents and their supporters have boarded the collective bandwagon (how distasteful) to demand that Trump disavow David Duke’s endorsement.
For the record and while Trump has disavowed Duke’s endorsement, where were those voices back in 2011 when Duke of whom I am not a fan joined Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Bernie Sanders in support of Occupy Wall Street?
I am talking specifically referring to the Occupy Wall Street camp in Zuccotti Park, NYC.
The same OWS camp who told Blacks and Jews that they were not welcome in Zuccotti Park.
The same OWS camp that exiled Blacks from the park ordering them to go Occupy Newark?
The same OWS camp (among others) that unleashed endless attacks against Jews working in lower Manhattan.
Are people so busy attacking Trump that it has gone over their heads that Duke’s endorsement may have been another establishment ruse, i.e., throw everything at Donald Trump including the kitchen sink and hope it sticks? Something to think about.
