The Republican party’s primary goal is no longer to defeat Hillary Clinton. On the contrary, the presidential race so far has forced the GOP to recognize that there is a much bigger threat to the status quo of American politics, Donald Trump.
According to Roger Stone, co-author of the 2015 bestselling book “The Clintons’ War on Women,” and the recently published “Jeb! and the Bush Crime Family,” conservatives are prepared to do damn near anything to keep him out of the White House…even if it means helping Clinton get in.
“The big fix is in. Beware the ‘Big Steal.’ The leaders of the GOP establishment plan to steal the nomination from Trump and to thwart the popular will, and they don’t care if they lose. Trump threatens all the establishment GOP leaders’ cozy deals. He’s a threat to the lobbying class. He’s a threat to the consultant class. He’s a threat to the globalists.”
So what exactly is the GOP’s grand plan to stop the billionaire bigot from being elected and living out his dream of becoming the next Hitler or Mussolini? Mitt Romney.
The GOP establishment would rather suffer through four years of Hillary – whose policies are indistinguishable from Marco Rubio’s or Mitt Romney’s – than to have an outsider be president like Trump, who is beholden to no one,” Stone explained.
“Rubio has been given until Tuesday and if he doesn’t win the Florida primary, the establishment GOP leaders have decided to dump Rubio in favor of drafting Mitt Romney, the GOP presidential nominee who lost to Barack Obama in 2012,” he went on. “If Rubio cannot win Florida, then Rubio drops out and Romney is in.”
From there, Republicans plan to take Trump out of the running through a brokered convention.
“The GOP establishment’s secret plan is to back Romney against Trump in the hopes of winning enough delegates in the primaries after Super Tuesday to block Trump on the first ballot at the GOP national nominating convention in Cleveland,” Stone continued.
Apparently the GOP figures what the hell. Rubio, Romney, Clinton, who cares. Anybody is better than an Oompa Loompa with pockets so deep he is beholden to no one.
“With Hillary as president, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan keep their jobs as the congressional heads of the GOP and they actually have more power under a Democratic president, the lobbyists supporting the GOP stay put, and the globalists open-borders crowd in control of the GOP establishment remain in power within the party.”
“The GOP establishment knows that if Rubio or Romney win the nomination, the nomination will be worthless because the GOP will lose to Hillary in November,” Stone elaborated.
“But the GOP establishment is fine with that outcome because Hillary Clinton’s plans are the same plans the GOP leadership in Congress currently has,” he insisted. “The Democrats and the GOP in Congress both want to continue open borders, to introduce amnesty for the illegal immigrants already in the United States, to give the green light to the Trans-Pacific Partnership and ship more millions of jobs overseas, and to expand the welfare state and retain Obamacare, and to allow Goldman Sachs and their friends on Wall Street to make all the money they want to make.”
Stone went on to explain that right now the Republican party is in “a battle to the death” over future control of the GOP. There are currently two plans for how they will deal with Trump’s insurgency.
Right now the GOP establishment is throwing all the dirt they can find against Trump against the wall to see what sticks. The GOP establishment attack on Trump is just beginning,” Stone said. “If Trump becomes the GOP nominee, ‘Plan B’ is for the GOP establishment to go into a full-court press to defeat Trump, even if it means Hillary wins the general election.”
Stone then elaborated on why the Republican party would prefer to have anybody, even Hillary Clinton, as commander in chief when compared to Donald Trump.
“Since the GOP establishment would be perfectly comfortable with losing to Hillary, either Rubio or Romney winning the GOP nomination would be fine with them,” he argued. “But if Trump wins the White House, it marks the end of the cozy deal the GOP establishment in Washington and D.C. has had with the welfare-state leftists controlling the Democratic Party.”
“I keep trying to explain to people – on what issue were the GOP controlling Congress and Obama and the White House any different? Endless war, the Patriot Act, bailouts for banks and Wall Street?” Stone asked. “Sure the GOP in Congress tries to sound different, especially when running for elections. But it’s all rhetoric. The real fight is between the globalist welfare state of the Obama, Hillary, and the GOP establishment controlling Congress and the Trump supporters who still believe in American sovereignty.”
So, assuming Trump continues on his current path, the Republican party’s last ditch plan to keep the narcissistic reality star from becoming commander in chief, is to oust him from the nomination through a brokered convention.
So, the GOP establishment has decided to go to ‘Plan B,’” Stone insists. “If Rubio loses Florida and it becomes clear he can’t suck up enough delegates to block Trump on the first ballot in Cleveland, then the GOP establishment will draft Romney to run….The GOP establishment has lawyers right now checking filing deadlines to make sure Romney can yet be registered in the big primaries remaining, including New York, New Jersey and California…The GOP establishment is dead set to back whichever candidate – Rubio or Romney – that they believe has the best chance of getting of a block of delegates in the remaining primaries big enough to block Trump on the first ballot in order to force the GOP into a brokered convention.
“Then, if Trump loses on the first ballot, the GOP establishment plans to vote the superdelegates and swap enough delegates from the remaining delegates to take Trump out in the second ballot,” Stone insisted.
