For a little insight into establishment thinking as they desperately attempt to cling to power, one might look to John Boehner.
If the Republican primaries do not produce a clear winner on the Republican National Convention’s first presidential ballot, former House Speaker John Boehner said the only man who can bring the party together is Speaker Paul Ryan.
He is the man who just signed the omnibus which funded all of Obama’s socialist agenda.
“If we don’t have a nominee who can win on the first ballot, I’m for none of the above,” Boehner said at the Futures Industry Association conference. “They all had a chance to win. None of them won. So I’m for none of the above. I’m for Paul Ryan to be our nominee.”
He has a point but if the establishment picks someone after millions have voted, it will mean the GOP picked someone who won nothing.
On Tuesday, Ryan said he would not rule out accepting the nomination at a brokered convention.
“You know, I haven’t given any thought to this stuff,” Ryan said “People say, ‘What about the contested convention?’ I say, ‘well, there are a lot of people running for president. We’ll see. Who knows.’”
Boehner has been quiet until now.
Boehner said that after the first ballot, “anybody can be nominated” at the convention in Cleveland.
True but if they do horse trading to reject the will of the people, they will destroy their cushy little existence at the same time.
There is little doubt that the establishment is preparing for a brokered convention during which they hope to crown a candidate that is acceptable to them.
Hugh Hewitt reported that John Kasich said no matter what happens, he plans to stay in the race all the way to the convention. The only reason to do that of course is to deprive Trump of the nomination and to deprive Cruz as well. Kasich has said in interviews yesterday and today that if he wins Ohio, there will definitely be a brokered convention.
On the 26th of February, CNN reported that Rubio was preparing for a contested convention and there is now an audio to prove it.
Breitbart has obtained an exclusive audio of Rubio’s campaign manager Terry Sullivan meeting secretly with donors Wednesday, February 24th, telling them about Rubio’s path to the nomination via a brokered convention.
The establishment and their two chosen candidates are plotting a brokered convention to defeat Trump and they are lying about it. It’s no coincidence that Kasich, Romney and Rubio are all saying the exact same things.
A brokered convention will “fracture” the party as Cruz has said. Cruz is very opposed to it.
A brokered convention is handing the election to Hillary and the socialists. We will also lose the Supreme Court and our Bill of Rights but the power brokers care more about their power and their cushy little jobs. They also think Trump is dangerous and a threat. Perhaps they feel it will be brokered no matter what because half the people are not voting for Trump and a significant number are not voting for Trump or Cruz combined, but it’s not their decision. This is the peoples’ decision.
The New York Times claims Mitch McConnell has a plan to break with Donald Trump should he become the party’s nominee. Personally, I trust nothing from the New York Times, I think the left is desperate and will do anything, but we report, you decide.
Leaders of the GOP don’t believe he can win in a general election and will take the rest of the party down with him, the Times reports.
According to The Times, resistance to Trump “runs deep,” and a “desperate” behind-the-scenes “mission to save the party” from the real estate tycoon stalled out. As a result, “two campaigns have drafted plans to overtake Mr. Trump in a brokered convention.”
