ALERT: Democrat & Republican Leaders To Declare Donald Trump “Mentally Incompetent” (UPDATES)

Apparently this isn’t a joke, nor is it merely another snide attempt to smear Donald Trump and the Trump campaign.

Sources indicate a concerted effort is now underway among a group of Establishment Democrats and Republicans to try and convince the American people that Donald Trump is mentally unfit to serve as President of the United States. These forces don’t need actual medical verification of their claims, but rather seek to merely have it confirmed within the court of public opinion.

It is an effort initiated by Barack Obama himself when he declared during a recent press conference that Mr. Trump was “unfit to serve” (then quickly echoed by New York Republican Congressman Richard Hanna) as American’s next president. That claim was a planned attack that is to be followed up by similar claims coming from both Republicans and Democrats and then magnified 24/7 by media cohorts intent on derailing the Trump campaign once and for all.

UPDATE #1: Georgia Republican Electoral College representative, Baoky Vu, a naturalized U.S. citizen, just announced he may not be casting a vote for Donald Trump because he feels Trump, “…antics and asinine behavior has cemented my belief that he lacks the judgment, temperament and gravitas to lead this Nation.”

UPDATE #2: Former Republican candidate for governor of California, Meg Whitman, just announced her intention to support and fund raise for Hillary Clinton, calling Donald Trump a, “dishonest demagogue” who has, “…undermined the fabric of our national character.”

UPDATE #3: CNN just went live with reports of an alleged “Trump Intervention” to take place in the coming days for what the network declares to be, “…a disastrous 48 hours” by the candidate himself. John Harwood just declared that Trump campaign staff are, “suicidal.”

UPDATE #4: The Daily Caller is now spinning a story that has top GOP officials “actively exploring” options to get Trump to drop out and then, “…replace him on the ballot” with someone else.

UPDATE #5: In what is perhaps the strongest confirmation yet of the above D.C. Whispers report, it has just been announced that Congresswoman Karen Bass is launching a petition demanding the evaluation of Donald Trump’s “mental fitness.” Here is her just-released comments on that petition:

“Mr. Trump appears to exhibit all the symptoms of the mental disorder Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Mental health professionals need to come forward and urge the Republican party to insist that their nominee has an evaluation to determine his mental fitness for the job.” (via, The Hill)

It appears increasingly certain the political and media Establishment’s “Trump is mentally incompetent” campaign is now fully underway, and willing to stop at nothing to see it succeed…

Paul Manafort vs Ted Cruz: Texas Senator Balances Personal Ambition Amidst Calls For Unity

It is said Paul Manafort doesn’t care much for former Trump GOP rival and current Texas Senator, Ted Cruz.

Apparently, he trusts him even less.

Cruz reps have met several times with Mr. Manafort, Trump’s campaign manager and convention supervisor, and though progress has been somewhat slow, it has also been described as steady.

At the heart of the near-impasse is Senator Cruz’s alleged desire to use the speech to elevate his own status within the Republican party, while avoiding alienating millions of Trump supporters who are determined to see the New York billionaire elected as the next President of the United States. Trump has cobbled together a very unique and disparate coalition that includes upper and lower income voters of all kinds – voters who might one day play a crucial role in furthering Mr. Cruz’s future political ambitions.

Manafort remains determined to make this the “Donald Trump convention” and to this point, has succeeded in doing just that. Minus a minor hiccup involving allegations of a small portion of Melania Trump’s speech sounding a lot like a previous Michelle Obama convention address, the 2016 GOP Convention has been a smoothly run operation and media ratings bonanza. 

The Cruz camp is said to have been reluctant to show a completed version of the senator’s speech tonight, but Manafort has indicated to media sources he is confident Cruz will remember who is priority #1:

“I think you’ll see [after] the end of his speech tonight that Senator Cruz will be part of the campaign going forward — in what capacity, I’m not certain, but his words will leave no doubt that he wants  Donald Trump to be president of the United States.”

As of this writing, the Cruz camp is said to have given no indication the senator will give an actual endorsement of Donald Trump during his convention speech tonight, an omission Paul Manafort is reportedly fuming over behind the scenes.

——————-

UPDATE: Cruz might have just blinked. Reports indicate Cruz has given a copy of his speech over to Manafort for review…

Paul Ryan Campaign Scrambles To Survive As Poll Shows 30-Point Drop In Approval

Just a quick update on the Paul Ryan vs Paul Nehlen primary battle. Speaker Ryan, one of the most powerful Establishment Republicans in the nation, and a constant critic of Donald Trump and Mr. Trump’s popularity among voters, is now officially in a fight to keep his own Wisconsin congressional seat.

Nehlen, a businessman and Trump supporter, has in just a single month, closed the gap by more than half between himself and Ryan. Should that trend hold for another four weeks, he could very well defeat the House Speaker, a result which would be a seismic shock to the political status-quo in America.

Ryan is currently polling at 43% to Nehlen’s 32%. Just a few months earlier, Nehlen was in single digits.

Nehlen had this to say about the most recent poll numbers:

 “Everything that Americans despise about their government, Paul Ryan represents… Can you name one time when Paul Ryan fought as hard for you and your family as he’s fought for corporate America?”

In one month, Wisconsin voters in Ryan and Nehlen’s congressional district will have a chance to decide of Mr. Nehlen criticism has enough merit to warrant Paul Ryan is sent packing.

PATHETIC! Weekly Standard Calls For Republican Convention Coup To Oust Trump

There was a time when Bill Kristol’s Weekly Standard was considered one of the bastions of conservative publications in this country. Mr. Kristol has made a very comfortable living claiming to be a spokesperson American conservatives.

And yet, today, this same Bill Kristol appears all too willing to see Hillary Clinton win the White House instead of Donald Trump, a man who has amassed more GOP primary votes than any Republican in history.

trump record votes

Trump is also polling higher among Hispanic voters than either Mitt Romney or John McCain – the very “growing the party” mantra Kristol repeated so often in recent years.

Yet here we are today, though, watching and listening as Bill Kristol declares there should be a revolt at this year’s GOP convention – a revolt whose goal is to snatch the nomination away from Donald Trump and give it to someone Kristol deems “appropriate” to be the Republican nominee:

“This election cycle hasn’t been kind to Republican big shots. Their favorite presidential candidates—Jeb Bush, Scott Walker and Marco Rubio—fell short. Their opposition to Donald Trump was ineffectual, and their subsequent submission to him inglorious.

Now they have one last chance to do something that would bring credit to them and benefit to their party and country: Support the effort by hundreds of delegates to free themselves to vote their conscience at the GOP convention.” -Bill Kristol

Mr. Kristol reveals what was always the Establishment’s true intent this past election cycle. There were three candidates this Establishment deemed “acceptable and those were Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, and a somewhat outlier, Marco Rubio.

When Donald Trump’s support surged, it turned over the table and Bill Kristol and others were caught unaware and found themselves scrambling to reassert control. This effort had them working side by side with the liberal media, Democrat operatives, and it would appear, the Hillary Clinton campaign as well.

Collusion is the name of the game in American politics these days. It is a comfortable collusion whereby both sides make lots of money pretending voters have a choice when in fact, there is hardly a difference between the two parties anymore. It is why a Republican-controlled House and Senate has done almost nothing to halt the authoritarian progression that has been the hallmark of the Obama White House. Too many Republicans want merely to give a speech or two, attend DC cocktail parties, and count the cash that is rolling in as they peddle their legislative influence to the highest bidder. (Which these days most often is the House of Saud and its affiliates.)

Bill Kristol isn’t a conservative. Nor is he a Reagan Republican. He is merely another opportunist grown fat off the world of pretend that is Washington D.C. His attacks against Donald Trump have nothing to do with saving the Republican Party or America, and everything to do with saving himself.

Donald Trump is pulling back the curtain on all of this, and in doing so, is enemy #1 of the political machine that has for too long suffocated OUR American potential.

Mr. Trump is the here and now.

Bill Kristol is the sad and pathetic past that Republican voters are rejecting by the millions as they unify behind Donald Trump.

America wants real change, and its tired of being lied to, manipulated, and made to sit down and shut up.

Those days are over.

BOOM! Longtime Establishment Congressman Loses Primary To Pro-Trump Challenger

It’s the very thing the GOP Establishment fears most – loss of control.

This week, an example of that diminished control reverberated throughout D.C. as challenger Scott Taylor, who is a former Navy SEAL and current Virginia State Representative, defeated longtime Republican Congressman Randy Forbes.

Taylor supported Donald Trump and Trump’s America-first economic platform. Randy Forbes did not.

Virginia voters just fired Randy Forbes.

Taylor hosted a Virginia Trump rally as far back as September, and has since repeated his plan to support the New York billionaire in his upcoming presidential battle against Hillary Clinton.

Polling data indicates one of the issues that doomed Forbes’s primary campaign was the longtime Congressman’s support of Obamatrade – the fast-track trade deal that many feel would ship yet more jobs outside of the United States, further debilitating an already suffering American Middle Class.

Congressman Forbes was successfully painted as an Establishment elitist who too often sided with party leaders over the needs of Virginians, and it cost Mr. Forbes dearly at the polls even though his campaign outspent Taylor by a three-to-one margin and had the support of both the state and national Republican machine. Forbes even attempted to jump from his state’s Fourth District to its conservative voter-dominated Second District to run for re-election, a move supported fully by the GOP establishment.

It appears that attempt failed.

Reports indicate a stunned House Speaker Paul Ryan was quick to phone Taylor and offer his support in his General Election bid this November as Republicans in D.C. brace for yet more pro-Trump influence that is already shaking the Establishment foundations of the party.

Hispanics/Latinos For Trump Movement Sweeping Across America (VIDEO)

Establishment Republican/Media figures like Bill Kristol continue to wage war against the likely GOP presidential nominee, Donald Trump. And yet, it is Donald Trump who is at this very moment expanding the base of voters in the upcoming 2016 Election like no other Republican candidate has done since the days of Ronald Reagan.

This video makes that fact all too clear, leaving one to wonder whose interests  Mr. Kristol is really shilling for, because it certainly isn’t the American voter.

Trump Already Beating Hillary. She Is Becoming JEB! 2.0…

Something is terribly amiss within the Hillary Clinton campaign these days.

They know it. Their supporters in the Mainstream Media know it. The DNC knows it.

And so too does Hillary Clinton herself know it.

With the General Election race not yet officially underway, Team Hillary is dealing with an increasingly unpopular candidate with a very weak base of support upon which to build a national campaign and despite hundreds of millions of dollars at the ready to make her more appealing, voters so far appear reluctant to give her much attention and even less respect.

Mrs. Clinton is looking very much like her political establishment counterpart, Jeb Bush.

And like JEB!, Hillary faces the political grassroots phenomena that is Donald Trump.

For months the Mainstream Media and politicos from both parties attempted to convince the American public Trump was not electable. Trump defeated his GOP primary rivals one by one until he it was he and he alone left standing – persistent critics be damned. 

These same critics warned Trump could never defeat Hillary Clinton in the General Election, but more recent polling shows Mr. Trump enjoying a continued popularity surge while Mrs. Clinton finds herself losing yet another primary battle to 74-year-old socialist, Bernie Sanders.

Trump and Clinton are already at a statistical dead heat in a head-to-head match-up, but momentum is clearly on the side of the New York billionaire.

Yesterday’s West Virginia Democrat primary gave the Clinton Camp even more heartburn-inducing statistics. Perhaps the most telling and daunting of these was the fact a third of Democrats indicated they would vote for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in the General Election. (And remember, this is a state Hillary thumped Barack Obama in during the state’s 2008 primary race)

A THIRD.

That is the kind of crossover voter appeal that more than rivals that of Ronald Reagan, whose two General Election victories were of historic landslide proportions unmatched by any other modern era candidate. The polling data also indicates that women are not flocking to Hillary as the Hillary campaign had hoped they would. In fact, despite months of negative media portrayals regarding Trump’s alleged lack of popularity among female voters, actual election results show women voting for Trump at a ratio comparable to other past GOP candidates.

In short, Donald Trump continues to build upon his success in what was a very competitive and volatile GOP primary battle and is poised to potentially crush Hillary Clinton in the General Election.

There are months yet before the November vote of course, and the Clinton Machine, however reduced from the days of its former and formidable glory, remains an entity capable of a comeback.

Media Declared Trump Campaign DOA – Over & Over Again…(VIDEO)

It is the fundamental root of the anti-Trump sentiment that still festers among so many within the media and political elite. A candidate who appears to break nearly every one of their manufactured rules, namely fear of their opinion, and then somehow seemingly grows stronger for having done so.

Since early summer last year, these same media and political elites have been chortling over the end of the Trump campaign.

Time and time again, Donald Trump and his growing base of supporters proved them wrong as Trump bypassed the Mainstream Media filter and communicated directly to the people in a way that has never been done before in the modern era of American politics.

“We can’t control him.”

So goes the refrain from so many who have for so long controlled the corridors of power in this country, and what they cannot control, they fear and the greater that fear, the more the American people now embrace the potential that is the Trump campaign.

 

 

 

The Day Paul Manafort Put The Fear Of God Into The Hearts & Minds Of The GOP Establishment

Some are still stunned with the speed at which Donald Trump suddenly elevated himself from front-runner to presumptive nominee following Mr. Trump’s landslide victory in Indiana on Tuesday.

Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s campaign supervisor, a man who has navigated the often turbulent waters of national politics for several decades, is likely not a bit surprised, for it was Manafort who just a few short weeks ago put the fear of God into a collection of anti-Trump GOP Establishment figures during a posh resort retreat in Florida – a meeting which it can now be said altered the trajectory of the Republican primary race and quite possibly, the future of the country.

The Trump campaign pre-Manafort was winning primary elections, but losing delegates and found itself time and again being excoriated via the Mainstream Media for various and repeated messaging hiccups. 

Then came the sixty-seven year old Manafort, a man who has known Donald Trump for some thirty years. The longtime political operative saw in Trump a political candidate with significant potential but potential that was being pummeled by a less than stellar campaign operation. Donald Trump was loyal to his stripped down, low-cost political team. Manafort felt it was loyalty that was ultimately coming at too great a cost to the candidate himself.

After a series of on-air media appearances by the new campaign supervisor that signaled Team Trump would be a more focused and effective endeavor, it was Manafort who was then dispatched to Florida for a series of sit-downs with some of the most influential figures inside the Republican Party – the very people who had for months wanted to see the Trump campaign destroyed and had facilitated the spending of tens of millions of dollars to make it happen.

A brief recording of Manafort commenting on Donald Trump’s ability to “evolve” during the General Election received a few days of media attention, but that commentary was secondary to Manafort’s true purpose inside the expansive Hollywood, Florida resort that week. Many of the GOP power brokers were all too familiar with Paul Manafort. They knew him, but more importantly to the goals of Team Trump – they feared him.

Paul Manafort is not a man to be trifled with, and when he sets his dark-eyed gaze upon an individual, there is a brief but all-important moment of silent self-contemplation within which he asks if you are to be a friend or a foe.

You would do well to choose wisely.

And so that stare was in full effect in Florida on that day and well into the evening and by the multiple meet-and-greet’s conclusion, Paul Manafort is said to have put the fear of God into most attending the event. He first focused on Trump’s impressive resume of success, and explained how that success would play out in a General Election victory. This was later reinforced in more intimate meetings in which Manafort repeatedly emphasized the disaster that would be a contested GOP convention, a disaster he implied would be of biblical proportions. With his low-voiced and utterly confident delivery, he laid out the longer-term implications should such a thing be allowed to happen and each time, he left powerful men and women accustomed to getting their way, shaken and uncertain should they continue on their anti-Trump path.

Word of Manafort’s success in Florida no doubt reached Trump quickly. The New York billionaire was not yet entirely convinced of the legendary abilities of his new hire. Indiana was to be Paul Manafort’s first real test. The Cruz campaign and the StopTrump operation were dropping millions of dollars into the Hoosier state. The ground game Cruz often bragged about was once again out in force. One can almost hear Manafort as he cracked his knuckles, issued his hungry, just-before-battle smile and then set out to pummel the Cruz campaign in a state that on paper, should have been a relatively easy win for Team Cruz. Remember, just a few weeks earlier, polling data had indicated it would be just that.

Trump’s success in Indiana was the direct result of Paul Manafort’s involvement and it was a success that reverberated throughout the GOP Establishment and reinforced Mr. Manafort’s earlier warnings in Florida to that same establishment that Donald Trump and his campaign were not to be underestimated.

Upon taking the stage in the gold-tinted Trump Tower following his landslide Indiana primary win, Donald Trump gave thanks to those who helped secure that victory.

The very first name he spoke was that of Paul Manafort.

And now the eyes of Manafort are focused fully upon Hillary Clinton.

#NeverTrump’s Epic FAIL

For weeks, the #NeverTrump “movement” received considerable media/social media attention, leading many to think it was in fact a viable and increasingly powerful nationwide focus to halt Donald Trump’s momentum toward the GOP nomination.

The facts have now proven that #NeverTrump was never much more than a small, albeit well-funded group of discontents who found themselves going up against a candidate who, despite what they attempted to convince others of, had much more support than they did.

The always silly and ineffectual #NeverTrump movement is yet another failed parody of events within the larger clown car that is the current GOP Establishment.

Its greater purpose in fact has been to yet further expose the fallacy of choice of voters to pick  the candidate they feel most represents their present and future interest. This fakery of choice has long infected both the Republican and Democrat parties and the #NeverTrump effort helped to make that fact both indisputable and far more known to many.

There are still enough Americans out there who bristle at the thought of someone so willfully attempting to tell them how they are to think instead of allowing them the opportunity to continue thinking for themselves.

The utter failure of #NeverTrump was the repudiation by millions of voters against the small and small-minded political and media cartel that so arrogantly presumed it and it alone was to decide who was worthy of being the next GOP presidential nominee. Instead, Donald Trump, via the support of millions who refused to bow before the alter of the political establishment, has and continues to amass millions of votes and widespread support across the nation.

There is something undeniably American about that kind of grassroots push back.

And that’s something to be proud of.

Donald Trump: The Most Fiscally Successful Campaign In The History Of Modern-American Politics

In the biz of a political race, it’s called a campaign’s “burn rate” – the amount of many being raised vs the amount being spent to secure votes. Since-departed GOP candidate Jeb Bush had an astronomical burn rate that saw him spending tens of thousands of dollars for a single vote. Of the remaining five presidential candidates of both political parties, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Ted Cruz are atop the burn-rate stats, followed by John Kasich, and then in what is proving to perhaps be the single most efficient burn-rate in the history of modern-era American politics is Donald Trump.

When it comes to spending the least and generating the most votes, it’s not even close. The New York billionaire has a per-vote lead of over 2.5 million votes over his closest competitor, Ted Cruz, and yet has done so by spending just a third of what the Cruz campaign has. 

That disparity is unprecedented and has placed Trump as the single most frugal national campaigner of this generation – a fact he often reminds voters of when he tells them that it’s that kind of business-minded way of thinking that is so badly needed in the deficit-spending madness that is the federal government.

Some suggest that the reason Mr. Trump is so frugal is because of all the candidates currently running for President, he’s the only one spending his own money to do so. Hillary Clinton has taken $76 million in Super PAC/special interest dollars, while Ted Cruz is not for behind in second with $62 million in Super PAC/special interest funding. In fact, some of the very same Wall Street dollars going to Mrs. Clinton are also going to Ted Cruz despite both candidates stating publicly they intend to, “reign in Wall Street.”

Ted Cruz Now Begging Wall Street For Cash…

Trump’s ability to squeeze the absolute most out of per-vote spending would quite possibly make him the single most formidable General Election candidate if he were to win the GOP nomination and thus, be granted the use of the GOP’s likely almost half-billion dollar presidential campaign war-chest.

Insiders have suggested the Hillary campaign will spend around a billion dollars during the General Election, but based upon Trump’s remarkable primary-race vote acquisition numbers, he might very well crush her in the General Election with a budget of half that amount.

Check Out This Trump Domination The Mainstream Media Wants You To Ignore

If it was a GOP candidate who apparently was anyone but Donald Trump, the repeated reports would be indicating him to be the single most dominant Republican candidate for President in a generation. Instead, the media and political establishment mouthpieces  even now continue to tell voters Trump might not win the GOP nomination.

That way, if that same nomination is taken from Trump at a brokered convention, the public will have already been prepared to accept it.

Here is a list of facts to share with others to show just how wrong that nomination theft would be.

Did you know no candidate has won more 2016 primary elections than Donald Trump?

Mr. Trump has amassed an impressive 18 primary wins. His closest GOP challenger, Ted Cruz, has won just four. Trump also bests Hillary Clinton who has won 17.

In the total votes category, Trump’s margin is even more impressive. Presently he has accumulated the support of nearly 9 million total votes. Ted Cruz’s vote total is more than 2.5 million LESS than Mr. Trump’s.

That’s a lot of votes.

Trump has won more states than any other candidate be they Republican or Democrat.

Trump has the highest win % of any other candidate.

Trump has won the highest % of delegates vs any other candidate.

What all of these numbers indicate is a candidate who has, despite considerable opposition, proven himself the single most dominant presidential candidate in the race from either political party.

And yet, the political and media establishments would have you believe that not to be so. Don’t fall for their attempt to manipulate reality. Donald Trump is calling for an “America First” presidency, and if the above numbers hold true, it appears America agrees.

Longtime Republican Insider: Trump Is Right – System Is Rigged Against Outsiders

Mathew Dowd, formerly of the Bush-Cheney 2004 team and longtime political contributor to various media outlets, (and no fan of Donald Trump) sat down with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and openly admitted the entirety of the GOP primary process is a rigged system meant to favor the Establishment.

It is a system by which millions of votes are merely “suggestions” to the party bosses in Washington D.C. and states across the nation. By the end of this month, Donald Trump will quite possibly have garnered four million MORE total primary votes than any of his GOP primary rivals, and yet, the Establishment system would then have delegates deny Trump the nomination and choose to support someone else, all those millions more votes be damned.

STEPHANOPOULOS: You just heard Trump’s convention manager saying the whole system is rigged, not just the rules they are playing under.

DOWD: They’re right. The system was designed to be rigged, it is rigged on both sides of the aisle. It is not set up to be transparent, open and get all the voters involved.

The RNC is also right to say the rules are known… but it is a rigged system…

When you cancel the primary in Colorado and say we aren’t going to do a primary, we’ll do a whole new system, they’re right, the system is broken. The political system on both sides is broken. It is a rigged system that only benefits certain people.

Why The Cruz Campaign Hates Paul Manafort (VIDEO)

In just a few weeks, Trump campaign adviser Paul Manafort has become nearly as hated within the Ted Cruz campaign as Donald Trump himself is.

The reason is simple.

Manafort is effectively blocking the Cruz-RNC cabal at nearly every level now, and is promising to continue to do so right up to and during the GOP convention this summer.

When it comes to navigating the too often overly complicated process that is Republican primary politics, Paul Manafort is as good as it gets and he currently appears very motivated to see Donald Trump win the Republican nomination and then do battle against Hillary Clinton for the White House.

The latest fiasco in Colorado is but one example of how Manafort is turning a lost battle into a potential war victory by exposing the fraudulent nature of what took place in that state’s behind-closed-doors primary process that left thousands of prospective Colorado voters wondering why they were not given the opportunity to choose their Republican candidate of choice.

From there, Mr. Manafort is shoring up Trump’s delegate defenses across the country in states Trump often won by many thousands of votes over Ted Cruz – decisive primary victories that Cruz/GOP Establishment operatives have since been attempting to subvert via peddling in-state party influence to sway prospective delegates to their side.

Following the Trump campaign’s lopsided loss in Wisconsin two weeks earlier, Manafort did a comprehensive review of the entirety of the Trump political operation and did so in less than 48-hours. From there, a plan was created and implemented over the course of 72 more hours and is now in effect and proving itself a formidable foil to the Cruz/GOP Establishment delegate purge that continues to be attempted by Team Cruz.

Check out this video of Paul Manafort discussing that very thing:

 

Denver Post Blasts GOP/Cruz Campaign “Anti-Democracy” Tactics

The Denver Post Editorial Board published a scathing rebuke of what transpired last week that had state GOP party elites dominating the process of selecting who would and would not be representing Colorado at the GOP convention this summer.

Colorado Republicans were denied their chance to vote and as news of what took place spreads, people are both stunned and upset over the extent of just how far the Republican Establishment is willing to go to control the nomination outcome.

Check out this excerpt from the just-published Denver Post editorial:

Republicans made big mistake in abandoning presidential tally

GOP leaders have never provided a satisfactory reason for forgoing a presidential preference poll, although party chairman Steve House suggested on radio at one point that too many Republicans would otherwise flock to their local caucus.

Imagine that: party officials fearing that an interesting race might propel thousands of additional citizens to participate. But of course that might dilute the influence of elites and insiders. You can see why that could upset the faint-hearted.

…the fact that the Republican leadership then took matters a step further and deprived even that narrow slice of voters a voice in one of the most competitive, consequential political nominations in memory – and perhaps in history – is mindboggling.

Mind-boggling indeed. Colorado GOP party leaders, working in conjunction with the RNC, took measures to avoid an influx of new Republican voters from potentially altering the party’s own approved delegate outcome by effectively banning Donald Trump supporters from being part of the process.

And just as concerning, it appears the Ted Cruz campaign was an all too-willing participant in this highly biased selection process for no other reason than the GOP Machine decided he would be the most effective wedge to block Donald Trump from securing Colorado delegates. 

The Denver Post deserves some kudos for breaking from the Establishment Media pack and actually raising a voice of protest against what took place in Colorado last week.

Whatever that state’s GOP Machine was practicing, it certainly wasn’t democracy and it now has potentially millions of longtime Republican voters literally burning their party registration cards and declaring, NEVER  AGAIN:

Lifelong Republican &Trump Supporter Burns Registration Card: “I WILL NEVER BE A REPUBLICAN AGAIN”

Colorado might be the most aggressive Republican Party manipulation of a delegate nominating process to date. The media is well aware of what took place, but refuses to report on it.

Trump delegates were intimidated, ignored, and ultimately had their names eliminated from ballots. Many left there declaring they had finally had enough of the GOP.

(video below)

“GOODBYE GOP…”

—————–

As news of what took place in Colorado has spread via Social Media, even those who support candidates other than Donald Trump are sounding the alarm of what has clearly become a mass manipulation of the nominating process by the GOP Machine:

“We will not take this….!!!!!!”

“Unbelievable what they did to you just because you are in favor of Donald Trump.”

“They’re showing their true colors.”

“How the hell can ANY state justify disenfranchising its citizens? Colorado voters had ZERO opportunity to influence the process. Is this the Soviet Union?”

Comments like the ones above are now multiplying as more and more are being awakened to the entrenched corruption inherent within BOTH political parties. That is not to say the Trump campaign’s effort in preparing for Colorado was top-notch from an organizational standpoint – it wasn’t. But word is Paul Manafort, the newly positioned campaign coordinator within the Trump effort, pulled the plug entirely in Colorado once he assessed the situation and the extent of the state GOP party bias, and instead made an effort in Michigan which effectively shut out Cruz while at the same time re-emphasizing to Trump operatives that  the campaign’s current focus is to be almost entirely upon the upcoming New York Primary.

That is no consolation to those Trump supporters in Colorado who saw that support literally turned away at the door this week. Here is one lifelong Republican declaring NO MORE as he burns his party registration card. It is a sad and anger-inducing moment to watch a political party with such blatant disregard toward the very people it claims to represent:

Rubio Campaign Set To Release Delegates To Cruz At GOP Convention

The Cruz campaign knows it has little hope of winning the majority of delegates prior to the GOP convention and so is hoping for a longshot Republican convention victory that will include obtaining a majority of the 164 delegates won by Marco Rubio during previous primary elections.

Apparently, both Rubio and Cruz camps are negotiating the terms of that deal right now which will include, but is not limited to, a high-profile endorsement from the Florida senator to the Texas senator in the coming days.

Prior to suspending his campaign (which allows him to keep his delegates “bound” to him) Marco Rubio amassed 164 total delegates. Should the Republican convention be contested/open/brokered, that 164 figure could prove pivotal in allowing Ted Cruz a path, however narrow and unlikely, to the nomination.

Some of those delegates will be bound by state rules requiring they remain with Rubio, but a majority of those delegates, particularly after a first vote on the convention floor, will be free to switch to another candidate and if Senator Rubio formally releases them, he can also during that process, direct them to then choose Ted Cruz. (negotiations between the Cruz and Rubio camps, along with involvement of state party leaders working in conjunction with this plan will expedite the process)

It is a scenario that Cruz told the media he was opposed to just two weeks earlier but is now actively seeking to see play out as it is the only likely remaining hope he has to be the Republican nominee.

As for Donald Trump, he is presently more than halfway to the required 1,237 total, and is poised to win some sizable delegate battles in the coming weeks via currently Trump-favored states like New York and New Jersey. If he fails to reach that 1237 mark though, the New York billionaire and author of The Art of the Deal might very well find himself the victim of a Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio negotiation intended to keep the GOP establishment power structure intact.

Ironic.

Trump Campaign Set To All But Wrap Up GOP Nomination By End Of April

Ignore the pleading wails of the Establishment media and GOP status-quo.

Donald Trump is looking to all but secure the Republican nomination for President by the end of next month.

The numbers are clear, and barring a monumental shift in voter opinion, everything currently points to Mr. Trump doing just that.

As of now, Mr. Trump enjoys a large delegate lead over his Republican presidential contemporaries.

Following last night’s impressive four out of five primaries won, the Trump delegate count stands at 661.

The total needed to secure the GOP nomination is 1237.

The March primaries will end with battles in Arizona and Utah. Trump dominates the Arizona polls. Utah is closer between he and Ted Cruz, so let’s have Trump and Cruz split the March 22nd primaries.  That means 58 more delegates for Donald Trump. (Arizona is winner-take-all as are most of the upcoming primary battles)

Then the race enters the month of April. Here is where a front-runner often becomes the likely nominee, and Donald Trump is on pace to repeat that history.

On April 5th is the Wisconsin winner-take-all primary. Trump currently leads in Wisconsin and its 42 winner take all delegates.

Then comes April 19th’s New York primary and its 95 delegates. Trump dominates the New York polls.

On April 26th the GOP holds its next Super Tuesday bout – the Northeast primary races with a total of 172 delegates up for grabs. All but one of the five states is winner take all. Donald Trump currently leads in all five states- four of those five by comfortable margins.

Giving Ted Cruz the win in the Utah caucus on March 22nd, Donald Trump will most likely be left winning the vast majority of the remaining primaries in late March and throughout April, meaning by the time April comes to a close, Mr. Trump will need just a couple hundred more delegates to secure the nomination and deny the GOP a chance at a brokered convention.

Trump leads in the polls in over half of the remaining primary states in May and June, meaning his path to victory is all but assured with the only caveat left, and it could prove a formidable one, is if the GOP is able to somehow circumvent the traditional nomination process and wrest the nomination away from Donald Trump.

Trump Support Surges On Day Of Tuesday Primaries

Something is afoot in America and it involves support for Donald Trump.

In particular, it is a surge in support that has the New York billionaire rising well past the 50% approval mark among Republican voters in what is still a four-man primary race.

The above graphic makes it clear it is Trump who appears to be benefiting most from Dr. Ben Carson having left the race and Marco Rubio being reduced to an afterthought. Establishment figures have been claiming for months that the fewer candidates in the race, the less popular Donald Trump would be.

That is being proven false – BIG TIME.

Ted Cruz, a distant second, appears to have hit a voter approval ceiling from which he has been unable to break. Kasich has seen a steady, albeit moderate growth in support as an Establishment Republican alternative, having switched places with Rubio in that regard, but remains well behind even Ted Cruz.

High above them all ranks Donald Trump and his astonishing 53% support, a higher number than the other three remaining candidates combined.

And in another slap to the face of the political and media establishments, who repeated time and time again that Mr. Trump’s negative rating made his campaign unsustainable, Trump is proving remarkably improves and resilient in that regard as well:

Will this latest polling data point to Trump domination during today’s critically important primary elections?

We shall see.

Frustrated Marco Rubio Prepares To Exit Race After Florida Primary

Word is circulating that Rubio campaign staff have been given notice the Florida Senator, barring a miraculous come-from-behind victory in his home state next Tuesday, will suspend his campaign shortly after the Florida primary is concluded, with some Rubio donors demanding the senator do so before then.

The candidate is said to be moving between bouts of frustration to more serene moments of acceptance, but in the end, is ultimately resigned to his fate that the 2016 GOP nomination isn’t likely to happen.

The Florida senator was once deemed the candidate most likely to defeat Hillary Clinton. While the outcome of that matchup will likely remain unknown, what is far more known is that Mr. Rubio appears to now find himself among several Republican candidates for president who were unable to defeat Donald Trump.

HEDGING HIS BETS:

“LittleMarco” as Trump took to calling an increasingly vocal and combative Rubio in recent weeks, appeared just today to be hinting at his willingness to be considered as a running mate to Donald Trump. Rubio’s political future is unclear. Some have suggested a run to be the next Florida governor. Others point to a number of lucrative lobbying positions likely to come the junior senator’s way. There is even a rumor an offer from a cable news network is being floated.

None of which were part of the Rubio agenda just a few months earlier, and especially after Jeb Bush dropped out of the race. It was then the Rubio camp felt momentum would be on their side as mainstream Republican voters would coalesce behind the Marco Rubio campaign.

That never happened.

Rubio enjoyed brief moments of somewhat expanded support following yet another strong debate performance, but within days that support would dissipate and he would most often finish third or even fourth in the next round of primary elections, a trend the campaign was unable to shake and that is said to have left Mr. Rubio increasingly frustrated and bewildered.

Marco Rubio remains a young man and a talented politician. He has plenty of time to learn from what went wrong with his 2016 campaign, but for now of course, that does nothing to lessen the sting of his current failure.
