“History is written by the winners.”
— George Orwell, Tribune, 4 February 1944.
As the GOP establishment continues to desperately scrounge for strategies to crush the Donald Trump campaign juggernaut, its myopia grows still more glaring to where suddenly, nearsightedness appears far more like they have been blinded by the light.
It appears now George W. Bush has grown desperate to save his pathetic party’s existence and brother’s dying campaign by expanding beyond his and the establishment’s antipathy towards Trump to his key ally, Ted Cruz.
Mr. Bush, controversially appointed president by judicial review, declared his antipathy for Sen. Cruz as an opportunist. It will be the former president’s words that resonate loudest among establishment firebrands in regard to his former employee.
“I just don’t like that guy.”
— George W. Bush on Ted Cruz
To the point Mr. Bush had been applying his usual colloquial humor, this totally befuddled donors at the fundraiser. One donor was so astounded, he was practically speechless.
“I was like, ‘Holy shit, did he just say that?’” the donor said. “I remember looking around and seeing that other people were also looking around surprised.”
“The tenor of what he said about the other candidates was really pretty pleasant,” another donor said. “Until he got to Cruz.”
Mr. Bush’s father’s design for a “new world order” has failed so completely, nothing short of the Rapture itself may end it. Certainly his brother Jeb did not aid matters given what was at best grotesque negligence in curbing illegal immigration in Florida before September 11, 2001, where twelve of the hijackers acquired visas and passports while one known Saudi royal who resided in Sarasota suddenly disappeared just two weeks prior to the attacks.
It turned out here, Donald Trump “the truther” was in fact, correct again.
In purloining the now-deceased Sen. Howard Baker (R-TN), I have to ask rhetorically that given the Bush family’s longstanding relationship with the Saudi royal family, what did President George W. Bush and then-Governor Jeb Bush know about this and when did they know it? Why then do intelligence dossiers pertaining to the September 11, 2001 investigation continue to be withheld or heavily redacted upon release? Why the Obama administration’s continuity of such blatant lack of transparency?
These matters will, no doubt, play into the GOP’s attempt to destroy not just Donald Trump, but the entire Tea Party. The 2016 elections will prove more critical for conservatism’s survival in America because of this fact the threat of legal persecution and arrest for “extremism” by President Obama’s global police force.
States Leaving Donald Trump Off GOP Primary Ballot Should Replace the “Independent” Label with “Tea Party”
Karl Rove again only days ago begged Republicans to not fall for the Trump populist appeal. Ironically, this is how Ronald Reagan won in historic fashion in 1980 when his eventual vice president, George H. W. Bush, attempted to stonewall him along with others within the party.
Yet Reagan, once faced with a public demonstration of defiance and political assault by the GOP moderator in New Hampshire, informed the world just who paid for his microphone upon the threat of it being cut off.
For Reagan, prior to his legendary “Evil Empire” speech, the force — his force — was with him and indeed, the world for eight years in what proved to be the most consequential presidency rendering the end to an evil empire “without firing a shot” in American history, not to mention resurrecting an economy on life support.
The GOP’s Political Suicide
It is this spirit which today’s GOP engages to root out any remaining relic in philosophic thought influenced by Ronald Reagan. The Tea Party best epitomizes the Reagan spirit, albeit with a very 21st Century approach to addressing the challenges for 2015, not 1980. The neoconservatives in power are the defining problem for why American politics since the fall of Communism in 1989 have not only damaged the nation, but destabilized the entire world due to failures to adapt to the rise of radical Islam, a religious form of totalitarianism which knows no nationality or border.
The GOP has a strategy remaining to apply to Donald Trump and Ben Carson to prevent them from legally winning in the following states’ “closed primaries”. This does not apply simply to present political independents Trump and Dr. Ben Carson individually, but to those who leave the GOP, preventing them from legally voting in a modern Jim Crow-rendition of the “grandfather clause”.
Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Washington DC, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington State, Wyoming.
Given the GOP establishment has made it clear it would rather any Democrat (think Bernie Sanders, an admitted Marxist sympathizer) win in 2016 than a Tea Party conservative or Donald Trump, the matter the GOP appears to have merged with the Democrats to destroy its own base not only speaks as to their “party-first” political discourse from Rick Perry and others, but of the Tea Party now possessing the political capital to finally consider breaking away, not continuing as the eternal victims of corporatism and socialist vice.
Because “blue dog” Democrat Jim Webb just ended his run for president to likely run as an independent, the opportunity now is almost too enticing to pass on destroying the political duopoly once and for all. As George Orwell wrote in 1944 “History is written by the winners,” we conservatives can no longer afford to simply ignore the tides of history now granting Tea Party Reaganites this wonderful opportunity to hijack or destroy the Republican Party under Mr. Trump or Dr. Carson.
