Despite almost limitless financial resources, the System Republicans have failed miserably to stop the Trump campaign. Donald Trump has been scoring 39 and 41 percent in recent polls while Jeb Bush has been scoring as low as 3 percent and Rubio as low as 8 percent.
Still, the System Republicans seem determined to hijack the Republican primary which everyone can see is going in Trump’s favor more and more.
An article from WorldNetDaily reports: “Critics of Republican presidential primary front-runner and billionaire Donald Trump, not having encountered his type of self-reliant, self-funded, brash and blunt candidacy, have taken to lobbing challenges to his ballot access to oppose him. Unsuccessfully, so far. But analysts do point out that getting the GOP nomination actually is a laborious process of lining up dozens, then hundreds, then thousands of delegates who are party faithful, and they wonder if the earthquake-generating candidate can establish the foot soldier network to do that.”
Basically, the Rockefeller Republicans, country club Republicans and other assorted RINOs are horrified at the thought of Donald Trump actually getting the nomination. Trump in the White House itself is something that they simply don’t seem to be able to wrap their minds around; for that matter, neither can the Democrats.
The article notes “One of the complaints to Trump’s ballot status happened in New Hampshire, where a former state Republican Party executive, Fergus Cullen, claimed Trump should not be allowed on the GOP ballot for several reasons, including that Trump has a history of being a Democrat and independent, and Trump’s views, ‘expressed over decades, are inconsistent with the Republican Party platform and the Republican Party of New Hampshire’s Statement of Principles and By Laws.’”
“‘A report in WMUR explained that after a hearing that lasted two minutes, the five-member commission voted unanimously that the challenge filed by Fergus Cullen was without merit.’ New Hampshire Ballot Commission Chairman Brad Cook described Cullen’s challenge as ‘grandstanding of the first order, and I didn’t appreciate it. It was trying to make an editorial statement,’ he said. ‘The commission – regardless of what anybody thinks of the merits or demerits, or the philosophy or anything about a candidate – our sole role is to figure out if a filing was legal and accurate.'”
“There was another challenge mounted in South Carolina, right about the time of the first GOP presidential debate when Trump refused to promise he would not leave the party and stage a third-party run. He has since stated he’s committed to the party. At the time, according to Political Insider, GOP officials called for all candidates to affirm they would support the nominees and platform of the Republican Party in the 2016 election.”
The System Republicans have no respect for the voters. They think they have the right to tell voters what candidates are “acceptable.” Trump needs to use poll-watchers and to have an army of lawyers on stand-by at the first sight of voter fraud.
Donald Trump is not Ron Paul. If his votes are stolen, he will fight it, and he has enough money to hire 50 legal Dream Teams, one in each state, to get an honest vote count. The fact that Trump can do this will discourage vote fraud. The System Republicans knew they could steal primaries from Ron Paul and that he would just roll over and do nothing about it.
After four months of polling, Trump is clearly dominating the Republican primary. So if not Trump, then who else could the candidate be? Who will the vote-stealers give the stolen votes to? Ted Cruz? They hate him almost as much as they hate Trump himself. Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush? That would be waaay too blatant. The RINOs might as well hang up a neon sign saying “We are stealing these primaries!”
This is going to be a very interesting year and not much fun for the System Republicans.
