I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office. —President Andrew Jackson 1837
Efforts to Derail Trump Nomination
Donald Trump has brought millions of people to the Republican party, or at least to his candidacy, and these more than offset the “Never Trump” gang. Trump is the only candidate in decades who has expanded the party. The movement and this candidacy is much bigger than the Republican party.
The globalists are working their butts off to try to sabotage the Trump nomination at every corner. Their efforts will likely go down in flames, especially because of Paul Manafort’s skill, along with Trump’s superb advisors, including Roger Stone. The globalist New World Order cabal is in high gear to stop the people’s choice, yet it’s unlikely they’ll succeed. Check out this great interview with Paul Manafort:
Many of the Rules Committee members and state delegates are GOP establishment. This same GOPe replaced many of the state Trump delegates with their own establishment delegates, in the hopes of derailing Trump. Why? Because he’s not one of their own…he’s a man of the people, a man for America, and a man who wants to make America great again! Both Republicans and Democrats have a globalist agenda (aka World Without Borders), and they hate Donald J. Trump, because he is not a member of their rotten cabal!
The RNC Rules Committee
“You’re counting on a lot to convince a party regular to throw the convention into chaos, but I wouldn’t be telling you the truth to say that it’s not a realistic possibility — and everyone is gearing up for it,” Randy Evans told reporter Greg Bluestein at The Atlanta-Journal Constitution. Evans is an attorney from Georgia, and an outspoken member of the RNC Rules Standing Committee. While Evans thinks it would be implausible for Donald Trump to be denied the nomination, he still says it is not impossible.
Unfortunately, state delegates across the country are being urged by the #DumpTrump crowd to throw the convention into a state of turmoil by changing the convention rules. Ex-Congresswoman, Enid Mickelson, is the chairwoman of the RNC Rules Committee at the convention. She is an ally of the Bush and Romney families. She has stated she is not a huge fan of Mr. Trump. She served one term in Congress and was charged with campaign finance violations.
How wonderful…that we have someone charged with corruption as the chairwoman of the Rules Committee. God help us…this is the GOP establishment!
Delegates Urged to Vote Their Consciences
A group called Delegates Unbound, run by Curly Haugland and Sean Parnell, is releasing a new TV ad encouraging delegates to vote their conscience and dump Trump. Haugland has explained that it is the party’s delegates, and not primary voters, who ultimately decide the party’s nominee. He made it clear, “The media has created the perception that the voters will decide the nomination…Political parties choose their nominee, not the general public, contrary to popular belief.”
This ad will be played throughout the country the first weeks of July. No surprise, both men are tied closely with CFR William F. Buckley’s anti-Trump, National Review and with David McIntosh’s pro-amnesty Club for Growth.
Here is the text of the proposed rule change…
Preserving Delegates’ Ability to Vote Their Individual Conscience
The secretary of the national convention shall receive and faithfully announce and record each delegate’s vote in accordance with these rules. If any such delegate notifies the secretary of his or her intent to cast a vote of conscience, whether personal or religious, each such delegate shall be unbound and unconstrained by these rules on any given vote, including the first ballot for the selection of the Republican nominee for President of the United States, without the risk of challenge, sanction, or retribution by the Republican National Committee.
Allowable personal reasons shall include the public disclosure of one or more grievous acts of personal conduct by a nominee candidate, including but not limited to, criminally actionable acts, acts of moral turpitude or extreme prejudice, and/or notorious public statements of support for positions that clearly oppose or contradict the policies embodied in the Republican Party’s platform as established at the national convention.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus announced that former RNC Chairman Mike Duncan will serve as Chairman of the Committee on Credentials for the 2016 Republican National Convention. How wonderful to have the former Director of the Cleveland Federal Reserve, Cincinnati Branch, in this position. Just add another globalist to the mix. He’ll be in good company with many of the Rules Committee globalists. Top it all off with the fact that he is a long-time supporter and fundraiser for Senator Mitch McConnell, who by the way is still criticizing Trump, but praising globalist Hillary. [Link]
Back in May of this year, Roger Stone outlined the situation with Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, neither of whom would win prizes for being Constitutional Conservatives! Here’s what Stone stated:
Paul Ryan is posturing by making his support for Donald Trump conditional on a set of demands. First of all, it’s important to understand the history. RNC Chairman, Reince Priebus, is often publicly identified with Romney, or his governor in Wisconsin, Walker, but in truth, Reince Priebus is a Ryan man. That’s his birthright in politics, Paul Ryan. Don’t forget that as we move forward.
So, in essence what Ryan is going to demand of Trump, is that control of the Republican National Committee will remain in the hands of Priebus and his cohorts. They would also demand that the Trump campaign use the data vault, which was built and partially owned by Karl Rove, for all of their outgoing voter contacts.
We happen to know that this system is flawed, it’s dirty, and it was proven to be ineffective in the 2012 campaign. They’re essentially just taking the Romney data program, which crashed on election day, and recycling it as a new product. It’s still flawed, beyond that they want to demand that the individual Republican State Chairmen have control and run the Trump campaigns in the individual states.
This struggle is mostly about money, it’s about the favored vendors for Priebus getting multi millions of dollars of the business from the Trump campaign and from the 2016 effort.
Here’s what Reince Priebus doesn’t understand. He and Paul Ryan are about to meet the toughest negotiator probably alive today. Speaking as someone who over the last 30 has negotiated multiple compensation agreements with Donald Trump, I can just tell you, he’s tough, he’s clear, he’s blunt, and he understands that the movement that he is leading is far bigger than the Republican party. He will not be blackmailed. He will call for Ryan to step down as Convention Chairman. There is, as I reported, a back bench revolt among individual liberty minded congressmen who are furious with Ryan.
Mitch McConnell and Ryan have already stated they’d rather have Hillary, which means they have no place at the head of the RNC, no place as a Speaker, and no place as the Senate Majority leader. These men have admitted they would scuttle the race and give it to Hillary. So why the hell are either of them Republican, and worse yet, why are either of them even called conservatives when that word has totally lost its original meaning? Roger Stone continues:
This is the insidious hand of Karl Rove. Remember Rove has a proprietary interest in the data trust data bank, and Rove has a tight relationship with many of these Republican state chairmen. So, the fix is in if Ryan and Priebus get their way. I also believe that the RNC has a $1 million bank debt that the Trump campaign is unaware of. I also think there are accounting tricks being used at the RNC to make their fundraising totals look more impressive than they are.
Since the 1860s it has been the right of the Republican National nominee to control the party in an election year. So giving in to any of these globalist neo-cons would be a huge mistake, and Trump knows that.
Next, we’ll discuss the Rules Committee, and some of the state members who are not Trump supporters, and never have been.
