In Indiana, Donald Trump effectively clinched the Republican nomination based on his America First platform. Naturally, the OUTGOING neoconservative establishmentarians have an ultimatum for him.
Well, of course.
To exulting whoops from Foxette Gretchen Carlson, the foxy war-for-the-world Pete Hegseth said it was time for Trump to stop his nonsense, quit denouncing Bush II and his Good War on Iraq, and start blaming ONLY Barack Obama for its failure.
The rest of the gang, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Megyn Kelly, etc., have been fulminating—suggesting Kumbaya moments and VP candidates to Trump; candidates and a unity the base has rejected for a reason.
Apparently, now that Donald Trump has won the nomination, it’s time for him to capitulate to the neoconservatives.
It’s so obvious.
So that’s what the above characters mean when they mumble about bringing the putrefied Republican Party together again.
WARNING: If Trump heeds his hosts at Fox News, he’ll lose The Country, a country he can capture.
The Onion’s spoof is not far off. Marcobot, aka “GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio, reportedly awoke in the Koch brothers’ secret compound Thursday and reached suddenly to his throbbing head to discover a cold metal device implanted behind his left ear.”
The Koch Brothers are a GOP Goliath worth around $115 billion. They’re gunning for Donald Trump who’s worth $10 billion.
A key player in the Koch brothers’ inner political circle will work directly on Sen. Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign, bringing deep connections to the brothers’ vast network of donors and experience helping oversee their sophisticated political operation.
Republican power brokers Charles and David Koch haven’t endorsed a GOP primary candidate, but Marc Short’s decision to move to the Rubio camp, first reported by Politico, comes as the party’s top figures grow increasingly alarmed by Donald Trump’s rise and looks for ways to stop his momentum.
WARNING: Donald Trump appears partial to Rubio and is making overtures to crooked prosecutor Rudy Giuliani. At the same time, Trump is trashing Ted Cruz, an enormous talent who has argued brilliantly and numerously before the Supreme Court and WON.
Were I president, I’d tap Cruz for Attorney General and task him with getting the U.S. out of binding, costly, and disadvantageous agreements with the UN (such as when “our” refugees are vetted by their Palestinian-run refugee division). Just for starters.
Intelligence, as in a very high IQ, is a rare thing. Intelligence that is as focused as that of Cruz is still rarer. No conservative should squander the scarce resource that is Cruz’s legal aptitude and ability to win big for the country.
Gov. Chris Christie is very smart. And he puts in her place someone who thinks she’s super smart, but is “just average,” as loose lips Megyn Kelly once quoted her own mother saying.
“Four times in a row” did Sen. Marco Rubio repeat the damaging lines, “in one debate, in a manner that was non-responsive to the questions he got, and as though he was drowning and grabbing for a life jacket.”
As Gov. Christie attests here, “Nobody [except for Fox News and Megyn Kelly] buys that Rubio’s replies are responsive. Rubio has no depth and no substance. There is no substance there and it shows.”
For what it’s worth, Christie is macho, forceful and smart.
Still, kids are propagandized before they turn 18 and well after. So I don’t know that repealing this liberty sundering amendment would help reverse the erosion of individual rights toward which the youth vote contributes.
