Beating Hillary is Job Numero Uno

Defeating Hillary is the first priority now in everything because nothing else will be likely without doing that first. Its a very simple script.

No, that is not over simplification and not a duh moment. But the forces that be in resistance are just as unwavering, or more so. Their motives should be self-evident.

Take a snap shot of the current landscape.

DNC in turmoil — shakeup continues When was the last time a party chair had to resign literally on the exe of their convention?

Liberals have a gaint fracture over Hillary.

Breaking leaks and mass replacements in the DNC, in the height of an election, with more bad news coming. Corruption reigns on the Left.

Obama trying his damnedest to run interference, campaign for Hillary’s anointing. Even if he has to put his own international policy on pause to lauch a cruise missile at Trump. He declared Obama unfit behind the Presidential Seal. That from this Executive Pen President with his record?

The pay for Iranian hostages is verified. That’s a giant I told you so from America, and more proof of the failed deal and embedded corruption. Remember they claimed hostages could not be made part of the Deal.

Hillary not quite through with investigations. It turns out there is no proof of her taking the required courses for handling information. And there is no verification of her aides taking them either. The relative questions of that, with her campaign, are enormous.

Hillary comes out to publicly lie again in an interview with seeming impunity. But the media is preoccupied — by design.

Clinton has so much establishment pay-to-play baggage and scandal in her closet that they had to install a compacter. It’s so toxic no one wants to go near it. Stories of Democrat unification are grossly exaggerated. But who cares about that?

Now I mention all this to say, with all that going on, the biggest question was Trump’s comment on a Gold Star mother curiously quiet as her husband launched a full-blown personal and political attack on Trump at DNC’s convention. .

If all that does not tell the tale, then all you have to do is turn to the media. (pick whatever source you want.) All guns and microphones on deck, aimed at Trump.

But reports are only that the GOP is so divided; stricken by total disunity. That narrative started before the convention and hasn’t tamped down. Now there are media stories that key people in the Trump campaign are totally frustrated. “Turmoil within” as CNN reports it. Then there are stories they are trying to do an intervention with Trump. Come on. What we need is an intervention in Washington and nothing short of that will stop the addiction.

Do you see any questions asked of Hillary on her campaign or her problems and the DNC, or its great divide? Nope, all is good over there — wink wink.

After the RNC convention, Hillary compared it to the Wizard Of Oz. I would compare the DNC convention to Fantasy Island, where everything plays out according to a pre-written fantasy. A script and all star cast it had. That doesn’t make it more believable. But for the moment, at least, just accept it for reality. Never mind the consequences of it all.

Hillary has to go or the show never ends.

Cruz takes the low road to victory

Senator-too proud for prime time-Cruz made a spectacle of himself in Cleveland. The former presidential candidate framed his prime time convention protest against Trump as a matter of “conscience,” which was the buzzword for the Never Trump people.

He called it standing on principled. But Trust Ted cannot be trusted to keep his pledge.

Memo: do not mistake pride for principle. His excuse is principle, but pride is the reason he cannot work with others or join forces to keep the country from falling off the cliff.

Ted Cruz and the Trump Takeover

Pat Buchanan | Townhall

The self-righteousness and smugness of Ted Cruz in refusing to endorse Donald Trump, then walking off stage in Cleveland, smirking amidst the boos, takes the mind back in time.

At the Cow Palace in San Francisco in July of 1964, Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, having been defeated by Barry Goldwater, took the podium to introduce a platform plank denouncing “extremism.”

Implication: Goldwater’s campaign is saturated with extremists.

Purpose: Advertise Rocky’s superior morality.

Smug and self-righteous, Rocky brayed at the curses and insults, “It’s a free country, ladies and gentlemen.”

Rocky was finished. He would never win the nomination.

Richard Nixon took another road, endorsed Goldwater, spoke for him in San Francisco, campaigned for him across America. And in 1968, with Goldwater’s backing, Nixon would rout Govs. George Romney and Rockefeller, and win the presidency, twice.

Sometimes, loyalty pays off.

http://townhall.com/columnists/patbuchanan/2016/07/22/ted-cruz-and-the-trump-takeover-n2195889<

Ted has a problem. His political strategy is dependent on his theory that he has a lock on all the issues. He obviously doesn’t. Ted seems to believe he is an island to himself.

If there was any doubt about what he meant by conscience in the speech, he removed all doubt the next morning in a press conference with Texas delegates. He came out to say his problem with Trump was a personal thing, and that was same reason he broke his pledge to support the nominee.

And so Ted’s supporters based their support partly on the premise of his pledge to the RNC. But now breaking that is a righteous act to Ted — one of dissent. What a difference a few months makes. He deceived supporters and the RNC with his pledge, then backed out on his word, which he said was his bond. There’s principle for you. But for that pledge he was given access to the database of the GOP. He waffled on his part of the deal, while the RNC kept theirs. Now he said it was for a personal reasons he “abrogated” his pledge.

Trump Pence is the ticket

That’s right its Trump and Pence, no translation needed. I believe this is the logo.

Trump Pence logo

On the other side, Yawn if You’re with Hillary, has all the appeal of a rotten egg.

Now Tim Kaine appears to be auditioning for Hillary’s estrogen ticket. Clinton Kaine.

Sherrod Brown, who Biden likes as a choice, seems to be sliding off the radar. But because his name starts with “She” maybe he will make a resurgence. Though Hillary just cannot have anyone who threatens to upstage her. She’s counting on the vagina vote.

If you aren’t on the Trump Pence side, I guess you aren’t in the game.

Rerun Romney still on the 2016 fence

Romney rerun, or is it déjà vu all over again?

Romney, still wanted after all these years …. so he thinks.

CNN

Washington (CNN)Mitt Romney’s family is still pleading for him to mount an independent bid for the presidency, the 2012 Republican nominee said Wednesday.

Romney, speaking to CBS News’ John Dickerson at the Aspen Ideas Festival, said a son asked him as recently as Tuesday to do so.

“My wife and kids wanted me to run again this time, interestingly enough,” Romney said. “I got an email from one of my sons yesterday, saying ‘You gotta get in, Dad! You gotta get in!’ ”

Hey, Mitt, what part of America does not want you don’t they understand?
Is it the accent, or maybe the translation? They are a little dense like you.

Oh, I keep seeing those planted comments on social media: “Go Mitt, America needs you.” Well, neither America nor the GOP needs you, Mitt. It’s time to shut the hell up.

What happens in Aspen and what is said in Aspen should stay in Aspen. But just go ahead and try running again, Mitt, and you’ll think it was a cake walk last time. (actually, it was but that is beside the point)

Like the Jethro Tull song…”Thick as a Brick.”

George Will exits GOP…. next?

George Will bolts GOP: ‘This is not my party’

Al Weaver 6/25/16 | Washington Examiner

Conservative columnist and commentator George Will announced that he is no longer a registered Republican after changing his Maryland registration from the GOP to “unaffiliated.”

“I’m an unaffiliated voter in the state of Maryland,” Will told PJ Media in an interview.

“This is not my party,” Will said during a speech beforehand to the Federalist Society. He also reportedly said that House Speaker Paul Ryan’s decision to endorse Trump was part of why he left the party.

Will said he isn’t sure whether he’ll vote for Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson. And he offered up a plan for conservatives to follow who don’t plan to support Donald Trump.

“Make sure he loses,” said Will, a Fox News contributor. “Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House.”

Adios, George. It’s been….

Never Trump’s new level of dissent

There is a difference between abstaining in one’s support of Trump and actively working to elect Hillary. Let’s be clear about it. Never Trumpers have busted the dissent mold. These Never Trump people have taken dissent to whole new operational level. (Hello Kristol)

In the worst of days when people could not support McCain or Romney, they still were not out there actively working for Obama — much less pulling the lever for him. (Maybe Colin Powell) And it was not a widespread epidemic, orchestrated to the highest level.

It would be the same thing for Never Trumpers now who say we’d be better off with Hillary. That they believe Repubs can contain her. Right, that worked on Obama. They are far more concerned about Trump. And they broadcast their dislike at every opportunity. It’s a cottage industry, #NeverTrump. It gets great media attention.

Yet people who didn’t like Romney, self-included, were not rooting for Obama and actively trying to get him elected because they didn’t like Romney. That would have been unthinkable. So this is not dissent, it’s sabotage.

The working assumptions of Never Trumpers’ calculations

Check out Ben Howe’s spot on Fox. He explains his Never Trump strategy. He lays out the objective and means of the movement or, as many would recognize, the Ends Justifies the Means reasoning. From his FB post — Exhibit A.

(FB comment)Yes I know I need to work on my smirking. I can’t help it. When people say “will of the people” it makes me want to barf. Trump got 40% of what amounts to a portion of one party. The will of the people is not heard until November. Until then, it’s difficult not to smirk when people act like the noble thing to do is close our eyes and support this maniac.</

As to questions on ignoring millions of voters in the primary process? (video)

“I would prefer a third Party or Independent candidate step up precisely to avoid that argument…. but I do think that [Trump] is destructive enough, not only to the GOP but also to conservatism in general, that whatever short-term fallout there is from replacing him would be offset by stopping this runaway train that will destroy the GOP.

Okay, say nothing about the destruction of ignoring the primary voters’ decision. He’s willing to ignore short-term blow-back problem of ignoring the primary results, in order to fulfill his fantasy for a different candidate.

Yes, he smirks at the thought of primary voters being ignored in his scenario.

Then he goes on in posts in defense to say the voters have not really decided yet, but will decide in November.Whatever exactly he means by that. This election process doesn’t count, only the results in November count? How does he conclude a drop-in candidate would have more support than Trump — like he is criticizing Trump’s vote margins? And would he say his candidate did not get a clear majority of GOP votes? Of course not that doesn’t matter. Folks, this is the kind of rationalization we have.

For a hint at Howe’s political strategy, his tweets have already been used by Think Progress in a Never Trump piece:

So he will not vote for egomaniac Trump, but he will actually pull the lever for Hillary Clinton. He also has instructed other like-minded people to do the same.

The Blaze had these statements from Ben:

“Fighting for the survival of conservatism, even as the party falls apart, is more important than any distaste you may have for the alternatives,” Howe said. “Donald Trump cannot be allowed to define conservatism for the next four years.”

Howe is so committed to the movement against Trump, he even advocates supporting Clinton in order to deny Trump a victory in November.

“My hope is for a viable third-party candidate, but I do believe that if that doesn’t happen, stopping Trump is more important than preventing Hillary,” he asserted. “As such, yes, I’d encourage anyone who looks at Trump as being as dangerous as I believe he is to pull the lever for Hillary.”

But backup, he went so far as to admit Trump has a decent shot at winning, unlike many other Trump critics. And that is why he actively encourages people to vote for Hillary.

“They’ve also incorrectly assumed that Trump has no shot at winning the general election, which I think is false,” Howe told TheBlaze, adding that he believes many anti-Trump conservatives will stay silent because they don’t want to admit “they’d rather see Hillary in office than Trump.”

So the guy has already made the case for voting for Hillary over Trump. Then he reasons that Hillary, at least, would be better for conservatives in the long run than Trump. We can survive Hillary as he puts it, but not Trump. Well, neither of those is known, it is just his guess. Apparently the wisdom of Ben Howe has factored into his equation all the actions Hillary would take and what it would do to our country as well. Some would probably say we survived Obama too. At what cost?

Yes, I do understand their point and what they want to do. But this is to say “let’s just trash this election, too,” making it three in a row now for progressive Democrats, because we cannot get a suitable candidate in there. Burn it down, which sounds a lot like spite.

The time for searching or injecting their preferred candidate would have been months ago, in the Republican process. Or at least chose a candidate to run in the general. But they are doing all this talking without even putting forward a candidate. Probably because no one wants to be a spoiler and sacrifice his/her career, such as Ben Sasse.

Romney only said he would stop trying to recruit a candidate when no one would agree to run. Never Trump even floated the idea of Mark Cuban, asking him to run. Never Trump is now a general platform for anyone to get recognition by opposing Trump.

Estabo conspiracy Party sellouts

Paul Ryan, speaker extraordinaire, after voluntarily calling Trump a textbook racist is now taking the liberty to define and outline what Trump’s pick for a VP should be. Nice guy.

Now that is chutzpah, Ryan laying out his criteria for a VP. What a bastard. He knifes you in the back and then offers to help you get a ride to the hospital, just to be a good Samaritan. Then he lectures on the Hillary scandal Trump needs to concentrate on.

His buddy, Rat Romney is still busy doing interviews calling Trump “trickle-down racism”. Some things are beyond belief even for the arrogant establishment.

I really despise both of these losers. Now we’ve had 4 more years of Obama because these two hoodwinked voters into supporting Romney/Ryan. Now they are busy running against the Republican ticket. Romney filibusters the air once again to condemn Trump.

Oh, lest I forget, both will have headline-starring roles in Democrat attack ads through the fall. Yet we are supposed to take either of them seriously? What can beat that: having the last Republican presidential nominee/candidate and his VP to supply attacks on Trump? Oh, and they were both involved in the cabal to undermine the GOP Convention.

If you are a Democrat, what could be not to like with all that? “Like Party on, dudes!”

Media, pols frenzy on Trump judge

What a week Repubs are having, or scratch that – what a field day Liberal media and Dems are having attacking Republicans and Trump over his judge statements.

It seemed each Republican voluntarily took a swipe at Trump’s statements. Some jumped at the opportunity. Here’s the latest partial run down.

Racism was on the menu. Paul Ryan called Trump’s remarks textbook racism.

Newt Gingrich:

“This is one of the worst mistakes Trump has made. I think it’s inexcusable,” Newt said on Fox News Sunday.

“He has every right to criticize a judge. He has every right to say certain decisions aren’t right and his attorneys can file to move the venue from the judge. But first of all this judge was born in Indiana. He is an American. Period.” [CBS]

Paul Ryan

“I think that should be absolutely disavowed,” adding that it was a “textbook example of a racist comment.”

“I do absolutely disavow those comments,” he said. “I’m not going to defend these kind of comments because they’re indefensible.” .. I think it’s “absolutely unacceptable.” [CBS]

So now Ryan insinuated Donald Trump is a textbook racist because he made statements questioning the bias of the judge, Questioning a judges bias and conflict makes you a racist.

Friday Ryan: “Look, the comment about the judge the other day just was out of left field for my mind. It’s reasoning I don’t relate to. I completely disagree with the thinking behind that. And so, he clearly says and does things I don’t agree with, and I’ve had to speak up from time to time when that has occurred, and I’ll continue to do that if it’s necessary. I hope it’s not.”

How about Ryan’s reasoning that we cannot relate to, like the Omnibus package?

Erick Erickson

“The attacks are racist. To claim someone is unable to objectively and professionally perform his job because of his race is racism, and damn the GOP for its unwillingness to speak up on this. The party of Lincoln intends to circle the wagons around a racist. Damn them for that.”

Joe Scarborough

“It’s completely racist. They can’t be morally outraged this week when they knew what he was doing last week.”

Kasich

“Attacking judges based on their race &/or religion is another tactic that divides our country. More importantly, it is flat out wrong.”

Sen Susan Collins

“His statement that Judge Curiel could not rule fairly because of his Mexican heritage does not represent our American values. Mr. Trump’s comments demonstrate both a lack of respect for the judicial system and the principle of separation of powers.”

Source: Politico

Mitch is busy comparing Trump to Goldwater, who he had no love for.

Mitch McConnell:

“In interviews on tour promoting his book, McConnell has said the election will be a choice “between two very unpopular candidates” and that he worries Trump could permanently alienate Latino voters from the GOP in the same way that Goldwater caused black voters to bolt from the party. He has also begun making the case that a Republican Senate could serve as a check on Trump and prevent him from abusing power or doing any real damage to the country.” — the Atlantic.

Not bad tap dancing for someone who voted for LBJ and who now tells people, like Trump, to stop attacking others. He’s one of the chief attackers in his tactically sly way.

Lindsey Graham, who only knows what can come from the Graham Cracker that was just looking for an “exit ramp”.

“This is the most un-American thing from a politician since Joe McCarthy,” — Graham told the NYT. [CBS]

Michael Reagan:

Marco Rubio:

“It’s offensive — he should stop saying it,. …He’s wrong. The judge is an American.” [CBS]

And to the bigmouth Senate Majority leader, Mitch McConnell: we have been forced to chew on and digest his statement now for 8 years and listen to it used in every issue, by media and Democrats. (it’s gotten more mileage than Mitt Romney’s dog on the roof of his station wagon.)

“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”

Thanks for that, Mitch. But how come you did not take to the air and defend that comment and correct the record about it? You let it hang out for everyone else to eat and defend. I’ll pass on the Sen Bob Corker comments, just because.

One more for the road. Pundit SE Cupp took to CNN on Tuesday, condemning Trump, by telling viewers Trump was “Mounting a campaign for white nationalists.

And now the Liberal media widely reports many Republicans are wondering if they can support Trump going forward. ER What a generous group of self-serving politicos.

Trump entering the great Unknown

Off we go int the wild blue yonder. That’s the sentiment I feel. so we enter a new era — or error if you naysayers prefer — of the great unknown of Trump. We entered still not knowing where it will lead, or what the way out will look like if there is one. Or does this, as some say, change everything into the future forever? I’m not quite sure yet being a bit more a realist, based on what we can see so far. But compared to what we now have….

Let me add some color to that, not necessarily between the lines because many of them have been erased. I take all this mostly as a good thing, as I have for months . But I know how many people disagree or question even mild optimism about all the Trumpism.

Now that the confirmation is official that he is R-nominee, there is a period at the end of the sentence. I’ve been flushing out some of my unspoken thoughts. I haven’t changed my mind on things due to Trump. I don’t have any phony reasons for supporting him. I have my own conservative philosophy and Trump meshes with it in many ways.

First, what is needed in the US. We keep looking, hoping for a Reagan. But I’m not sure there is one, or that it is possible anymore. In some ways, America moved on since the Reagan years. Sadly, we disintegrated after the pinnacle of Reagan. His legacy now is even twisted or skewered regularly by liberal Democrats. Though I still remember much of the criticism then. They really ganged up on him at the time and it had an effect with the public. It finally became clear that we were lucky for his leadership and wisdom. They could not take that support away from him. Trump was demonized, but then it backfired.

Trump vs Fox the real reality series — Exhibit A.

“How Trump Beat Fox News”

By Amy Moreno May 29, 2016 (excerpt)

Donald Trump is me because he said out loud the things I had been screaming at my TV for 8 years. He validated the anger I felt at my political party for deceiving me – and even more importantly, thanks to Trump I began to understand why they betrayed me. Donald Trump woke me up from a clueless slumber where I assumed that if you had an “R” in front of your name we were on the same team.

Boy, was I wrong.

So, when my BFF Fox News began attacking Trump with an endless array of snarky comments and a parade of nonstop negative commentary, they weren’t just attacking Trump – they were actually attacking me – and I defended myself, my point of view, my frustration, and my lifestyle by fighting back.

Hardcore.

I took to social media and I boldly pointed out every snarky comment and bias criticism spoken by my friend Fox News. From the rolling eyes of Dana Perino to the petty one-liners of Greg Gutfeld, every unfair jab at Trump was addressed – because those stupid facial expressions and juvenile zingers that were intended solely for Trump, struck the heart of millions of disenfranchised people who had been screwed sideways by an arrogant government and shunned by elitist pundits who whistled irrelevant tunes from gilded cages – both of these groups blissfully detached from the real-life struggles facing the very people they professed to support, understand, and speak on behalf of. ,,,/

The common denominator is a lot of people identified with Trump. His words were different and his ideas had outsider written on them. Whatever you thought of him, he was definitely not the establishment pick. Fox only confirmed the mountain of estabo opposition to him. The more they said no way can he be the nominee, the more he kept winning. It seemed he only became more popular in spite of all their criticism.

The multifaceted Trump campaign is nothing we’re seen before. Multifaceted because he is running multiple campaigns all at the same time. He runs against Clinton and his political opponents, which is one big campaign. He also has to run against the media and Left-wing attack organizations — a few more. Trump ran a successful attack on media. Something I haven’t seen another candidate or politician do. Then he has the business campaign that attacks his business interests, plotting against him. Most of it may be coming from the Left but there are still various campaigns.

The beauty is that none of the common negative expectations have worked so far. Trump is unique and so are his results. Odds that before were insurmountable now aren’t. Undefeatable opponents no longer are. That is the good news. The bad news is that it all does not stop. In fact, they are trying even harder. The attacks come from everywhere: media, pundits, Hillary and her many surrogates, organizations and protestors. Almost anyone who has an interest in opposing Trump. Since he represents change, that means almost everyone. Funny how a lot of people don’t want change. On top of it all, now attacks come straight from Obama and the White House, even while on foreign shores.

Obama had his live from Asia jabs. He claims to speak for the world leaders. He sure made a mess of his loyalties. Trump is somehow the problem. Funny how people think just the opposite. Obama the wrecking ball of the US passes judgment.

That’s where the great unknown optimism comes in. Usual politics do not seem to apply. The danger is it could lead to an overconfidence that he cannot be stopped. Finally something has worked to oppose status quo, the media and politics as usual. And it has been messy, what would you expect? So some world leaders are rattled. Since when is that a major concern? But maybe a certain US pric is rattled, and that’s a good thing.

French vs. French on Trump

What did David French say before about a Trump nomination?

Was that a French kiss for Trump?

Fast forward, I wonder if anyone informed the brilliant Mr French that many Americans might have some reservations about voting for someone named French for President? But I admit that is still an unproven theory.

Lou Dobbs tracking the estabo GOP

Lou Dobbs – The Horrible Three-Headed Monster Of The GOP Elite

It’s Horrific – Three Headed Monster Of The Republican Establishment
Posted on June 1, 2016 by Rick Wells

It’s a horrible thing, the three headed monster that Lou Dobbs says is “lurking within the GOP establishment.” It sounds downright disgusting from his description, a hybrid of Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and Bill Kristol. He notes “none of them is particularly aggressive, at least publicly, they’re more passive aggressive. They’re how the party of no was first formed, in fact.”

Dobbs continues, “Trump today slammed Kristol as a loser in his new conference,” point to an interview with Sean Hannity in which he says Kristol is just trying to sell copies of his failing magazine. Trump asked, “Who would do it? Look, it’s a guaranteed loss, you can’t even get on in Texas now because they missed their deadline and now they’re missing other deadlines. And all he’s doing, I guess, is trying to get publicity for his failing magazine, I imagine.”

Dobbs points out the weak track record of Kristol when it comes to predicting political winners and losers, including the prediction that Hussein Obama would not defeat Hillary Clinton in a single Democrat primary in 2008 and a Romney victory in 2012.

Dobbs notes that Kristol’s boss, billionaire Philip Anshutz, who owns the Weekly Standard, generally tries to remain out of the spotlight, but he’s stepped into it with both feet on this one. He’s donated over $1 million to establishment GOP candidates this cycle but Dobbs can’t imagine Anshutz either permitting or dispatching Kristol on this fools’ errand.

In response to Trump’s comments about Kristol, he replied, “I’ve won some and I’ve lost some but one thing I’ve always tried not to be is a roaring jackass.” Dobbs adds, “In my opinion, Kristol has obviously failed in the latter regard and in recent years he’s been almost always been wrong in his choice of candidates and indeed public policies.”

Wrongheadedness,” says Dobbs, “doesn’t deter elites like Kristol, all uncomfortable with the democratic reality that votes do matter and that majorities and not special interests, not even really rich elite interests rule.”

Dobbs adds, “And they fear Trump mightily, precisely because he’s likely to make the establishment very uncomfortable for a very long time.”

Could it be as simple as Trump says, he’s “trying to get publicity for his failing magazine?” I don’t know. However, it is clear that Kristol is willing to risk it all, or what is left of it, to oppose Trump. A losing cause for himself and potentially the country.

What makes a person that driven to obsession? He has said he didn’t mind supporting Hillary or if she won. He can try to run from that. So Kristol is not about winning, he is about Trump losing. That his subscribers flee, so what? Apparently his establishment ties are stronger and more important. Love for country? Please.

Like Dobbs said, Kristol’s pick record is not good. And then he has been palling around, scheming with Romney for months — with Romney’s record. Ryan’s record is confirmation. But if Trump would lose, they can all come back in 2020 for another round.

Here is another one for the estabo record from Rick Wells:

Glenn Beck just got SUSPENDED from SiriusXM for talk about ‘removing’ Trump

May 31, 2016 | John Binder | BizPac Review

The suspension came after [author Brad]Thor said on Beck’s program that a “patriot” should “step up” and “remove” Trump, first reported by Mike Cernovich’s blog Danger and Play.

“I am about to suggest something very bad….” Thor said on Beck’s program. “With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that? … I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office, because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.”

Erickson wrote Friday that he would “gladly work for a Romney presidency given the choices between Clinton and Trump.”

“There is more and more data out there that the time is right for a third party bid,” Erickson wrote. …/

Captain Iggy Bliss

The Ignorance of reality on Trump

Hi everyone, Iggy Bliss at your service. I’m sorry I have been so busy with everything Trump that I haven’t been able to update you all on my blissful animal farm adventures.

Now that Trump is our presumptive nominee, I haven’t felt the need to purge my intellect further. Sure, there are those who are still calling us ignorant, stupid people and blissfully so. There seems to be a growing pride in that since…. well, we are WINNING!.

Anyway, not to rub it into my betters and intellectual superiors, but Trump has resonated now like no other with people across a spectrum. From low income to high income, from so-called uneducated to educated. Whether it is on jobs and the economy or terrorism.

But yes, we are still considered the blissfully ignorant ones, equivocated to barnyard animals and evolutionary primates. Do we see a little irony in that yet? If not, just wait it is crystallizing along the Trump Train tracks.

Not that I, the great Iggy, is bragging. I don’t take any comfort in saying I told you so. Who wants, or needs, to rub it in that we have a government and an establishment elite that hardly anyone on both sides of the isle trusts. But that is the central problem or symptom today… not the means to gaining control of it.

I have to catch up on events because so much has happened since I spoke you last. Now Paul Ryan and Trump have met and Ryan still withholds his support. Well, to each his own I guess. What is more interesting, for the unpopular speaker of the House, is the lack of criticism of him from the Never Trump crowd. Wait, weren’t they months ago complaining about Cryin’ Ryan’s failings? Now they are silent on Ryan and that other guy he was hooked up with, Romney.

I thought Romney was the anathema to the conservative movement? Call me stupid, but no, he has been scheming with Never Trumpers about running a third Party candidate. Strange bedfellows, indeed. But Mark Cuban — really? And they all call me blissfully ignorant? I can’t even find any barnyard animals with any love for Romney. Seems the enemy of their enemy is their friend.

So this is me, Iggy, rubbing your Never-Trump noses in the venomous saliva of two-time loser, Mitt-the pussycat-Romney. Meow! I hope you all enjoy your lustful affair.

Romney has now said he is done trying to recruit a 3rd candidate. That doesn’t mean he has changed his position on the matter, just that he will not actively recruit a candidate. How big of him. Still, I heard no criticism about him from those who were eager to jump in bed with him. What does that make you Never Trumpers, prostitutes? I think so. The Iggy may still seem ignorant but he is not the one aligning with a two-time estabo loser.

Iggy Bliss signing off, hoping all your Never Trump hallucinations are happy ones.
We’ll leave the light on for you at a Motel 6.

Donald Trump, unifier in chief

Can D. J. Trump unify the Republican Party?(sigh) That seems a lot to ask of Trump.

Trump is not the one who blew up and fractured the Party. He is not the one with a legacy of distrust. Now Party leaders and the press hoist it all on his shoulders to unify the Republican Party. And they are making that his litmus test: If he cannot do that, then how can he do anything and how can we win?

Then we have Ryan grandstanding while acting like the godfather of the Party. Ryan is so concerned about the fractured state of the Party when he has been an active participant. Ryan and Romney lost in 2012 and yet here they are as the stalwart flailing curators of the Republican sideshow it has become. Exhibit A for failure.

Yet along comes Trump to ascend as the presumptive nominee and they grill him on what he is going to do to heal the Party? Surreal. If they were looking for a good scapegoat to their own failings, then they believe they found the perfect specimen.

After all, Trump is being blamed or accused of causing everything from dysfunction in Washington to our struggle with Islamic radicals and terrorism, to Republican Party failures. He is blamed for the failures of press and media to do their jobs. He single-handedly is the excuse for everything. A nuclear explosion in North Korea would be his fault. How much else can they hang on one person — an outsider, non-politician at that?

We now have the most divisive administration in modern times, and Hillary has been a big factor in it. Yet Trump is supposed to lead the entire free world in a chorus of Kumbaya — “come by here”. So much to demand of Trump, isn’t it? Well, that’s the game. The higher they can set those expectations, the better the chances he cannot meet them.

Meanwhile, what is expected or demanded of Hillary-Rotten-Clinton? Oh, that she not be indicted in a current administration that seems to have no will to prosecute her anyway. Really, what is her mission? Her agenda is the same as Obama’s — to destroy America under a ruse of hope and change — and continue that to its natural conclusion.

Everyone, including Republican estabo insiders, is setting Trump up for failure. As long as no responsibility for the current condition of catastrophe points back at them.

So if you thought Benghazi, servergate, ISIS and terrorism, or the scandals of Obama and Clinton mattered, you’d be wrong. What matters is can Trump unify and solve all the genetic problems the illustrious insiders have caused? It is repulsive and revolting.

The estabos’ feud, bitch and grudge match is now with the voters — not just Trump.

Jeb makes it unanimous

Leave it to Jeb to add a declaration to the prez-election that its now a Bush-Free Zone.

“…tremendously frustrated by the abject failure and inability of leaders in Washington, D.C. to make anything better.

American voters have made it clear that Washington is broken, but I’m not optimistic that either of the leading candidates for President will put us on a better course.

The American Presidency is an office that goes beyond just politics. It requires of its occupant great fortitude and humility and the temperament and strong character to deal with the unexpected challenges that will inevitably impact our nation in the next four years.

Donald Trump has not demonstrated that temperament or strength of character. He has not displayed a respect for the Constitution. And, he is not a consistent conservative. These are all reasons why I cannot support his candidacy.

Hillary Clinton has proven to be an untrustworthy liberal politician who, if elected, would present a third term of the disastrous foreign and economic policy agenda of Barack Obama.

In November, I will not vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, but I will support principled conservatives at the state and federal levels, just as I have done my entire life. For Republicans, there is no greater priority than ensuring we keep control of both chambers of Congress. I look forward to working hard for great conservatives in the Senate and House in the coming months.”

Funny how the guys that were all for supporting the Republican nominee suddenly now cannot.  Well, you got the “tremendously frustrated by abject failure” part right. But thanks for the Bush-Free Zone, Jeb. That was a solid.

Independent candidate talk

Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol has now come out, again, to say he wants a 3rd person, independent candidate. He suggested someone like Nikki Haley.

So he wants an anti-Trump, anti-Hillary candidate. We could call it the ‘AA Tcket.’

Just days ago, Kristol went on Steve Malzberg’s show to declare he is not sure on #NeverTrump. Later, he said he was just joking and seriously #NeverTrump.

And now it is on. The Gateway Pundit reports a private meeting took place between Romney and Kristol, at Bill’s request.

William Kristol, the longtime editor of the Weekly Standard magazine and a leading voice on the right, met privately with the 2012 nominee on Thursday afternoon to discuss the possibility of launching an independent bid, potentially with Romney as its standard-bearer.

He came pretty close to being elected president, so I thought he may consider doing it, especially since he has been very forthright in explaining why Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton should not be president of the United States,” Kristol said in a phone interview Friday, during which he confirmed that he and Romney had a “little meeting in Washington.”

Well, the funny part is that Romney specified he did not want Trump or Hillary to get elected. But by running, he would have a direct hand in getting Hillary into the White House. If he won’t do it, they will find another stool-pigeon to affect that outcome.

Maybe Hillary’s campaign could even coordinate with the Kristol Klan?

Cryin’ Ryan

Ryan says he can’t support Trump, at this time.

In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Ryan said he wants Trump to unify “all wings of the Republican Party and the conservative movement” and then run a campaign that will allow Americans to “have something that they’re proud to support and proud to be a part of.”
“And we’ve got a ways to go from here to there,” Ryan said.

Donald J. Trump Responds to Speaker Paul Ryan

“I am not ready to support Speaker Ryan’s agenda. Perhaps in the future we can work together and come to an agreement about what is best for the American people. They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time for politicians to put them first!”

Donald J. Trump

Friday, Trump told Fox:

“I was very, very surprised. He talks about unity, but what is this about unity? With millions of people coming into the party obviously I’m saying the right thing,”

“So many great endorsements yesterday, except for Paul Ryan! We must put America first and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump said.

So let me understand, Ryan demands Trump unify “all wings” of the Republican Party? What elite arrogance. One of the guys responsible for the ongoing Party failures, causing conservatives’ grievances, blames Trump and then expects him to fix it.

This from the guy who was plastering self-promoting videos of himself on social media. What is going on with Ryan and what’s his problem?

Then comes news of a meeting between Trump and members of Congress for next Thursday. Once again, Ryan injects himself in the news cycle. Meanwhile, with all the grief people have over Ryan’s performance, he is pointing at Trump. I’m glad, with all the problems, Ryan finds a convenient scapegoat and whipping post in Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, Dick Cheney takes a stand for unity.

McCain in ‘his agents of intolerance’ mode

So McCain is worried about his next election. Ah, that’s too bad. Time for blame.

McCain on tape: Trump damages my reelection hopes

‘If Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket,’ … ‘this may be the race of my life.’

By Burgess Everett and Seung Min Kim | 05/05/16 | Politico

Publicly, John McCain insists Donald Trump will have a negligible effect on his campaign for reelection. But behind closed doors at a fundraiser in Arizona last month, the Republican senator and two-time presidential hopeful offered a far more dire assessment to his supporters.

“If Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket, here in Arizona, with over 30 percent of the vote being the Hispanic vote, no doubt that this may be the race of my life,” McCain said, according to a recording of the event obtained by POLITICO. […/]

From his speech at a private fundraiser:

“People are angry. they’re upset, they feel that there’s this disconnect. All of that and, frankly, there’s an element of nativism in it as well, as you know.”

People are justifiably angry and, Senator McCain, you are one of the chief causes. Ouch, “nativism” in there too? That nasty nationalism, we can’t have that. (Video)

But people didn’t forget what John McCain and his McAmnesty did to our Party, and our country. How we were all undermined and attacked because of you, John. So it’s the election of your life? Maybe it is about time.

But hey, “race of his life” probably makes for great fundraiser fodder though.
This election was another referendum on all that plus Obama’s executive amnesty.
