Fox Business has just reported that the Republican National Committee has decided against “tweaking” their arbitrary rules, as is their wont when they don’t get their candidate. The atmosphere is too politically combustive. In other words, The Party knows The People are hip to the kind of thing the RNC did with the Romney initiated Rule 40(b), in 2012, to make Ron Paul vanish.
Incredibly, the yarn the lyin’ media has spun is that the complaints against the Party bureaucracy are a figment of Donald Trump’s imagination. Unlike The People, these shysters can’t tell the difference between man-made rules and natural law. They seldom question The Rules.
If RNC Rules are so immutably fair, so small-r-republican, so true to the voters—why do they need constant tweaking in a direction away from popular will? And why, when a decision not to tweak them comes down, does Chairman Reince Priebus advertise the hell out of his decision not to rock the boat and usurp the voters?
“The rules are the rule; We are following The Rules”: When in history did we hear a riff on that theme before? Not to invoke the invalid Argumentum ad Hitlerum, which would be incredibly wrong—even in the context of the GOP—but when Republican regimists refer to THE RULES OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY as their source of moral authority; it DOESN’T SOUND GOOD and it isn’t good.

“Throw little old ladies off the cliff” is an expression Sean Hannity uses to mock the mischaracterization of Republicans and conservatives by “liberal media.” By no means does it describe the conservative titan Phyllis Schlafly. However, a Cruz-supporters coup against the great Mrs. Schlafly, attempting to oust her from the organization she founded and continues to run, puts the lie to some Republicans’ decency or deference to wisdom and age. Again,” a coup against the mighty Ms. Schlafly was attempted and thwarted.
The attempted take over of the Eagle Forum was the handiwork of the Ted Cruz wing of the Schlafly organization:
… On March 11, 2016 conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly endorsed Donald Trump for President at his St. Louis rally.
But not everyone in her organization, Eagle Forum – or her family – agreed with Phyllis Schlafly’s decision.
Two weeks ago Phyllis Schlafly released several board members for disloyalty to the organization.
The group was planning to hold rogue board meeting to take over the Eagle Forum.
Last week the rogue Cruz supporters attempted a coup at Eagle Forum.
They held a non-sanctioned meeting and reportedly blocked Phyllis Schlafly from their conference call.
Today Phyllis released a video to the Eagle Forum. She’s still in charge. …
It turns out Donald Trump was right AGAIN. The nickname “Lyin’ Ted” for presidential hopeful Ted Cruz fits to a T.’ “Cruz insists he is winning ‘grassroots’ victories and claims, ‘This is how elections are won in America.'” But—and you don’t need honest Trump to state the obvious—“Cruz ‘has to get his delegates from the Republican bosses’ and … those wins [are] sneaky and meaningless.”
