“Tripwire Alert” – The Backstory To The Eric Cantor Endorsement….

The GOPe alignments begin.  Perhaps faster than would have been anticipated, in large measure because of the success of Donald Trump against the Jeb Bush professional political machine.

A Game of Thrones

Boehner - Cantor- McCarthy - House-GOP-leaders-Cantor and Leaders

Former House Majority leader Eric Cantor will endorse GOPe candidate Jeb Bush today and become co-chair for Jeb’s Virginia team. The alignments within the establishment republican party apparatus become more transparent.

[…]  Cantor is to introduce Bush on Thursday evening at a fundraiser in Richmond and then will appear with him Friday morning at a VFW post in Norfolk, for a town hall focused on veterans issues.  (link)

It’s interesting to note the legacy media (all of them) avoiding any discussion of this endorsement considering Jim Gilmore the former Virginia governor and also a *cough* “candidate” *cough*.  Jeb’s brother Marvin Bush also lives in Virginia, and another GOPe road map “splitter”, Carly Fiorina, also has homestead in the state.

Virginia was recently in the headlines because the RNC/GOPe party apparatus is considering banning any candidate from the ballots who does not swear allegiance to the Republican Party writ large.  (Keep an eye out for anything from Ed Gillespie, who, in reality, holds the largest current RNC political leverage – and has been very quiet).

Cantor’s endorsement, while predictable, is merely evidence of the establishment class displaying their ultimate goal, elect Jeb Bush.  So far, Donald Trump has done an outstanding job of deconstructing their previous GOPe roadmap plans.  However, these guys are exponentially Machiavellian.  

A Republican Party Apparatus Riddled With Anxiety

To understand how all this fits in the larger construct you have to understand the depth of the political construct, the affiliations and intents.  When you put the Q-Beam upon it you see, yet again, what’s really going on.

Diane Cantor, Eric Cantor’s wife, works for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce President, Tom Donohue.

Wall Street, via The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and President Tom Donohue have used K-Street lobbyists for four key “MUST-HAVES”:

  1. Comprehensive Immigration Reform – to include Amnesty for illegal aliens. (link)
  2. Support for full delivery of Federal Common CORE education standards (link)
  3. The full implementation of ObamaCare without adjustment. (link)
  4. Trans Pacific Trade Deal (link) (Currently in negotiations)

Mitch McConnell has worked diligently for three years to deliver this heavily lobbied legislative priority list.  This is part of the key reasoning for the intensity of the 2015/2016 GOPe roadmap to get Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton elected.

THE LATEST PROBLEM – The current polling shows how little support there is for Jeb Bush.  The approach by Donald Trump to target Jeb’s Wall Street financial backers and treasurers is also applying pressure the GOPe did not anticipate.

Last week the New Hampshire (PPP Poll) showed Jeb at 7%, and Trump at 35%.  A serious problem considering New Hampshire was road mapped to be the lift-off for Jeb.  As a direct consequence the GOPe apparatus needs to “split” Trump momentum quickly.

Toward the ends of all the establishment plans above, Ohio GOPe splitter, via John Kasich’s Wall Street funded Super-PAC, ‘New Day for America’ is launching a Madison Avenue marketing volley toward Trump in an effort to stop the insurgency.  TODAY:

A super PAC supporting Ohio Gov. John Kasich is increasing its New Hampshire advertising spending to $5 million and launching a fourth ad highlighting his budget-balancing experience in Washington. (link)

Remember, the GOPe road map is created to elect Jeb Bush with a team of candidates running along side him.  The nine professional political party-loyal insiders who are in this race to help Bush are:

Carly Fiorina (VA), Mike Huckabee (AR), Chris Christie (NJ), Marco Rubio (FL), John Kasich (OH), Rick Perry (TX), Lindsey Graham (SC), George Pataki (NY) and Jim Gilmore (VA)

All of these candidates are only in the race to get Jeb Bush elected with 15-20% of the primary vote.  Their specific roles and responsibilities are outlined here.  Each has a role to play.

The honest candidates, meaning those candidates not in the race to assist Jeb Bush are:

Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Bobby Jindal, and obviously Donald Trump.

*Note* Ben Carson and Scott Walker’s intents are not 100% identified as pure. (However, Walker’s Super-PAC run by Brad Dayspring is a big red flag of GOPe association).

GOP primary 2

Just a Reminder, this is an insurgency. – The modern enemy of Wall Street is Main Street vulgarians. The enemy of the RNC/GOPe is not Democrats, it’s Grassroots Conservatives, more vulgarians.

The Republican Party, and the Republican media apparatus, view us as their enemy. We are the enemy they need to protect themselves from:

In 2014, the RNC approved selection rules that govern how each state’s delegates are portioned out from the primaries. Under one of the changes, states holding their primaries between March 1 and March 14 will have their delegates doled out proportionately with election results, a change that will likely stymie a movement candidate.

States that have primaries on or after March 15 will be winner-take-all states.

That’s important because another RNC rule change requires that a candidate must win a majority of delegates in eight or more states before his or her name may be presented for nomination at the 2016 Republican National Convention.

With 18 GOP presidential candidates, for now, it will be that much harder for any candidate to win a majority in any state, let alone eight. (Article July 2015)

GOP-versus-Tea-PartyNow, ask yourself, why would the RNC want to “stymie a movement candidate“? Who exactly does that benefit? Obviously, the “non-movement” candidate, ie “the turtle“.

Isn’t the entire reason for campaigning in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina etc. to make a movement/momentum?

In addition Rule #40 changed in 2014 from previously five needed state wins, to a newer threshold of eight (8):

Officially, it’s Rule 40 in the RNC handbook and it states that any candidate for president “shall demonstrate the support of a majority of the delegates from each of eight (8) or more states” before their name is presented for nomination at the national convention. (article March 2014)

Again, ask yourself who does this benefit? A candidate can win seven states outright, and still not have their name presented for nomination?

These rules were made/affirmed in 2014 – Who or what exactly was the GOP concerned about blocking in 2016 that would necessitate such rules? When combined with other rule changes you can clearly identify a consolidation of power within the RNC apparatus intentionally constructed to stop the candidate of the GRASSROOTS from achieving victory.

It’s all part of their GOPe Roadmap.

    Cantor’s endorsement for Jeb! is a Kiss of Death. The voters spoke loud and clear with regard to Cantor (or as I like to spell it “Can’tor”) and ousted him for Brat based on immigration alone.

    Buh-bye, Jeb! guess it wasn’t “your turn” afterall.

      People need to be reminded about Can’tor. I have been steering friends here to learn about the GOPe for several weeks. In some ways I think the GOPe plan was to get Hillary elected so they could shift the heat to the demonics. That becomes a win win for them, they get their sweet heart deals and no blame.

          two points. One; I don’t think the RNC realizes yet that they are going to lose control no matter what. IF they kick Trump out they lose the white house due to the split votes. If they keep him or kick him out they are about to lose so many incumbent seats they will find the “established” party to weak to do anything but block the new republican party that will have control of the house and senate as well. For those who don’t think that could possibly happen take a look at the numbers from 2014. The right wing picked up seats. The left wing lost seats. LOTs of them. Those left wing seats didn’t all go to RNC selected people. After the 2016 election there is going to be a really different landscape in Congress.

    Since “the GOPe needs to split Trump momentum very quickly” should we not be concerned about the Trump/Cruz alliance on Iran? It seems to me that keeping Cruz in the hunt hurts Trump. I’m less alarmed Nathan others here about the Iran deal, but from a purely political point of view, I’m not sure what Trump has to gain from this joint statement on Iran. Does he expect to win over Krauthammer? All 18 GOP candidates are against the Iran deal. How does it help Trump to shout “me, too!”?

    I still think this was crafted to thwart a Cruz, Paul, Jindal grassroots movement, not Trump. But, with the rapid rise in Trumpateers the GOPe has been regulated to calling an audible that has not been drawn up yet. They are flying by the seat of their pants.

    On a side note re: Hildabeast:

    Hillary Clinton aims to end Joe Biden talk

    The workmanlike stretch is meant to convince Democratic power brokers and big-money donors that they don’t need to place side bets on the vice president — and to suggest to Biden himself that there’s no role for him here; there’s no race to save.

    The campaign is inviting its top fundraisers to Brooklyn headquarters for a day of strategy sessions with top aides next week, and Clinton’s operation told that group of “Hillblazers” that it would soon start getting regular policy briefings via conference calls with one of Clinton’s closest policy aides, Jake Sullivan.



  7. moogey says:

    There was a he said/she said meeting between Walkers Finance Campaign Chairman who is also a biggie in the Wall Street Hedge Fund Industry and Donald Trump about three days ago.
    Hedge fund guy, Scaramucci, says Donald called him, and he went to Donald’s office as a hedge fund representative and Donald tried to lure him away from Walker’s campaign.
    Donald says the guy, Scaramucci, called him and Scaramucci wanted to jump ship and join Donald’s campaign.
    Judge Nepalitano has now brought this up on Fox Business News three times and each time he delivers Scaramucci’s side of the story. Judge Nep says he’s working on a ground breaking story, so I’m expecting a Wall Street via Fox News attack campaign to begin fairly shortly.

    On another note, be aware that Donald’s comments about Pamela Geller after the Garland terrorist attack have been posted to a website and it’s perfectly logical, that we will see this used in an attempt to peel off Trump supporters. We are the enemy and we must not let our emotions be used against us to take down the only candidate that calls for closed borders.

      • The Dems and RINOs seem to have no self-understanding of how far they have strayed from the core principles of honest government. If we were to raise Genghis Khan from the dead, and tell him 3 rules: (1) no starting wars, (2) no killing opponents, and (3) no ruthless tactics on countrymen or allies – if you agree, you can compete for our leadership – the sad truth is that he would be better than any of these traitorous wienies who conspire against their own country’s future.

Carson has been polished and shined by the GOPe, but underneath, he truly believes in fixing the wreckage of America’s cities. Trump saw what Giuliani did for New York – he knows that cities can be turned around. Carson is one of the few candidates who is truly motivated to carry on the Trump vision in that regard. Cruz and Fiorina both have strong components of carrying on Trump’s vision, but I think Carson may have an edge in many respects. And they’re similarly positioned near right-center, without being reference RINOs.

    AllahPundit Blast off: Shaky Jeb Bush campaign ready to soar thanks to coveted Eric Cantor endorsement

    I feel like we’re going to find out six months from now that Trump bribed Cantor to do this.


    Eric Cantor, former House majority leader, will endorse Jeb Bush on Thursday evening and will be named a Virginia state co-chair of his presidential campaign, Republican sources tell POLITICO.

    Cantor was courted intensely by other candidates. Cantor retains a strong political network in Virginia, a key primary and swing state. And he has enviable connections among Jewish business leaders who can be key supporters and donors…

    A Cantor source said: “They have known each other for a long time, speak regularly and have great mutual respect for one another. Eric believes he is the only candidate with a real long-term vision for the country who can also actually implement it – not just talk about it.”



    I …guess this makes sense? Right now, if you’re Jeb, there’s nothing you can do about Trump except hope that Republicans are having a summer fling and that old-fashioned establishmentarianism will reassert itself this fall. In the meantime, you focus on sidelining Walker and Rubio by winning the donor primary. Even in a worst-case scenario for Bush where Trump stays strong through New Year’s, he and his team are convinced they can win a head-to-head primary death match as undecided Republican voters say to themselves, “We’re not really going to give Donald Trump the nuclear codes, are we?” If we’re destined to have a “Trump vs. Not Trump” race, then obviously the thing to do now is make sure that you’re the strongest “Not Trump” available. Cantor’s connections will help with that, especially with Kasich bearing down on Jeb in New Hampshire. Who knows? It may even be that Jeb’s hoping to see Trump’s success continue through the fall. He may have a better shot at winning a “Trump vs. Not Trump” battle as the “Not Trump” than winning a “Bush vs. Not Bush” battle with, say, Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz as “Not Bush.” As Trump himself said today:

    Trump: Jeb’s fundraising haul is ‘honestly the only thing he has. Without that, he’s got nothing. Zero.’

    Indeed, which is why Jeb’s smart to lock up another big fundraiser. But yeah, all that aside, it’s high comedy that a guy who’s increasingly dismissed as an uncharismatic pro-amnesty cronyist underperformer would be touting the endorsement of someone who washed out of his House primary last year for being too soft on immigration and too cozy with cozy with D.C. lobbyists. It’d be like Kasich breathlessly announcing that he’s secured the Jon Huntsman endorsement. A little self-awareness, dude, please.

    Speaking of which, wise words from Sean Trende on cause and effect in this year’s primary:

    Jeb! probably upset the R applecart worse than Trump. By sucking up the establishment $$ without any grassroots support 1/3

    he forced Walker, Rubio,etc more into anti-establishment territory,panicked the R grassroots by emerging as the establishment candidate. 2/3

    So much of today’s R primary makes sense if you view it through that lens: What if Jeb hadn’t run/been so bad on stump? 3/3

    Trumpmania would have been a thing even without Jeb in the race, I think, especially if Rubio had emerged as the frontrunner and given Trump a juicy Gang-of-Eight target on immigration, but I don’t think there would have been the same populist frenzy. Bush is so baldly an “anointed” figure by party power brokers, reeking of aristocracy, dragging bags of money and favors owed behind him, and underwhelming everyone at every turn that backing a brawling vulgarian like Trump feels like the only logical democratic response. There wouldn’t be the same urgency to punish the donor class if Walker or Rubio or Cruz or someone else of modest beginnings from the new generation of Republican pols had climbed into the lead. Some parapsychologists will tell you that poltergeists aren’t “ghosts” as we commonly understand that term but rather a psychokinetic entity brought into being by a person with psychic powers when they’re forced to cope with extreme stress. The poltergeist, supposedly, is a sort of projection of their inner turmoil; once it’s manifested, it operates independently of the person who unwittingly created it and wreaks havoc. That’s Trump. He’s the poltergeist of the Republican primary. The donor class dropped $100 million on Jeb early as a sign that they were prepared to foist yet another bland centrist nominee with lots of connections on the party, and the anguish that generated in part of the base was so enormous that it hatched a banshee who’s now tossing people around the room and retweeting “bimbo” cracks about Megyn Kelly. Anyone know a good exorcist?

    Jeb might want to be careful to claim “bragging rights” and remember that it is no secret that Cantor held knowledge of the FBI investigating Petraeus until after the election where an earlier revelation of the Petraeus scandal could have tipped the election in Romney’s favor.

    Jeb might ask himself if Cantor betrayed the public and potentially his own partisan cause by not alerting, say, his colleague Mike Rogers, the Republican chair of the House intelligence committee, sooner? And more important if Cantor did tell his close friend, Rep. Paul Ryan, then still the presumed vice-president, did Team Romney decide it was too seamy or too unpredictable to pursue the sex allegations against Petraeus days before the election, or did they also fail to recognize a potential political opportunity?
