Rush Limbaugh Recognizes The GOPe Splitter Strategy…

The GOPe road map to nominate Jeb Bush is becoming more transparent each day.  Since we initially outlined the construct of the establishment republican scheme we have been subjected to consistent criticism by those with a vested interest in either ignoring, or protecting, the fraud.

However, today radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh joined us, and thus begins to awaken an even larger audience.  We can expect the inbound fire to increase exponentially:

rush-limbaugh“[…] They’re turning to Mitt Romney.  Now, what does that tell you?  It’s more than what’s obvious to you.  It tells you that as far as the Republican Party officialdom, the RNC, the establishment, whatever you want to call them, those candidates are up there not to really win.  They’re up there to split the anti-Bush vote. 

They’re up there to soak up all of the money Bush doesn’t get, and then they are there to drop out eventually when they don’t do well, when they can’t raise enough money because all of it goes to Jeb because that’s the original strategy. Bush is gonna soak up all the money, making it impossible for the others to run. 

This was the strategy before Trump got in.  And the Republican establishment actually hoped for and wanted a lot of candidates.  For example, I think Lindsey Graham announcing was strictly Republican Party tactics.  Lindsey Graham knows he’s not gonna be elected.  Lindsey Graham knows he’s not gonna be nominated.  But in South Carolina he could do something. He could help siphon some money away from Bush. 

See, the point is you’ve got Bush, the establishment guy, and you’ve got some junior establishment guys up there.  The junior establishment guys are all there to protect Jeb by taking money and votes away from the others who are not part of this, the Carsons, the Scott Walkers (read more)

There is always a risk in exposing a fraud.  Large and bold truth telling that cuts down the canopy of deceit is rarely welcome.

Those who engage in revealing bold truths are often attacked by those who have a vested interest in the retention of the deceit; and, as a general principle, those willing to show deception can only count on Luke-warm defenses from those who would benefit from the sunlight.

With that in mind, and with all of the aforementioned research solidly -and increasingly- affirmed, and because Rush Limbaugh stops short of identifying all of the players, we will define the roles and intents of the RNC/GOPe splitter team.

The GOPe construct to nominate Jeb Bush consists of ten people, ten candidates:  Jeb Bush

  • Marco Rubio
  • Carly Fiorina
  • Mike Huckabee
  • Chris Christie
  • John Kasich
  • Rick Perry
  • Lindsey Graham
  • George Pataki and Jim Gilmore.

Jeb Bush is the primary candidate the others are, as Rush states, his “protectors”.

rubio bushMarco Rubio –  Marco Rubio is a one term junior Senator from Florida who was the protege’ to Jeb while Rubio was a leader in the Florida legislature (Speaker of the Florida House) and Jeb Bush was governor.

Through the five years of his DC tenure Rubio has been increasingly aligned with the establishment class of GOPe DC insiders.  His fundamental ideological alignments are in synergy with his mentor Jeb, and most are aware his overall favorability within the conservative base, ie. Tea Party electorate, has diminished greatly.  In the past two years he has been in lock-step with the party bosses.

Rubio’s goal on behalf of the RNC/GOPe plan was/is to split the Florida electorate away from a more conservative ‘non-jeb’ candidate.  Florida polling has shown this strategy is largely successful, sans the unanticipated popularity of Donald Trump.

As a one-term senator with no accumulated wealth, a family and two small children, Rubio cannot run for re-election and also run as a presidential candidate.  This highlights one of the ‘tells’.  Why would a young, one-term senator give up losing his political career with a long-shot presidential bid?   The answer is a Jeb Bush/Tom Donohue golden parachute.

carly fiorina 2Carly Fiorina – Carly Fiorina likes to present herself as a “DC outsider”, however the truth is 180° divergent.   Fiorina worked for John McCain’s failed White House bid in 2007/08 and also as campaign spokesperson for Mitt Romney in 2011/2012.

Like Rubio – Fiorina’s policy positions are in alignment with Jeb Bush.  Supportive of comprehensive immigration reform, amnesty, common core, et al.  Fiorina is not just a California Republican, she’s essentially a female version of Jeb/Mitt.  After losing her 2010 long-shot bid to gain a California senate seat against Barbara Boxer (remember the demon sheep ad), Carly moved to Virginia and enmeshed herself with the RNC/GOP party apparatus.  She currently homesteads in Virginia and is a frequent cocktail party attendee with Marvin Bush, Jeb’s brother.

Virginia is important for many reasons, not the least of which was the devastating GOP uprising in 2011 which tore down the republican party structure for decision-making and replaced it with a grassroots convention nomination platform.  This infuriated the DC-based GOPe professional political class which most visibly took out their anger against former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinnelli in ’13.  All support withheld.

Mike Huckabee♦ Mike Huckabee – Huckabee’s role in the strategy stems around a few basic principles.  One, his weekend TV show was suffering with horrible ratings and insiders leaked the probability it was not going to be renewed.   As an avowed party loyalist Huckabee was in a keen position to be a benefactor to the party apparatus.

Much like Virginia the Arkansas conservative base was/is becoming a threat to the GOPe party apparatus.  During the GOPe road-mapping phase the RNC moved the primary dates of VA and AR along with their delegate distributions.  Arkansas became a problem for the RNC when Senator Tom Cotton bucked the establishment protocols, won his primary, and then refused to moderate his ‘severe tone’  and message.   Cotton was a stallion outside of the GOPe controls, they didn’t like that.

Cotton didn’t back down and actually proved his case by winning his Senate election; unseating an incumbent Senator in the widest possible margin of all the 2014 Senate Races.   Cotton was right, the base was right, the GOPe proved wrong again; they don’t like that.

Huckabee is leveraged on behalf of Jeb Bush to split those Arkansas vulgarians and bring back much needed party moderation.   The primary date moved, proportional distribution of delegates affirmed, Jeb can succeed by holding down a conservative “movement candidate”.

Rick Perry HeadshotRick Perry – Rick Perry compromised himself most notably with the secret Colorado convention back in the summer of 2011 (Wall Street and Kochs).  As a former Republican Governors Association chairman, and close friend of Mississippi’s Haley Barbour, Perry had fine-tuned his establishment bona-fides long after Sarah Palin helped him in his re-election in 2010.

Being term-limited out of Texas office, and having grown attached to the GOPe sway and cocktail class indulgences, Rick Perry became a perfect aide in the delegate distribution plans for the large state of Texas.

Perry’s role, much like Lindsey Graham, was planned in 2014 to take enough of the conservative base vote away from the non-Bush crowd (Cruz, Walker, Paul).  It’s a simple divide and conquer strategy which current polling shows would be successful, again if it were not for the presence of Donald Trump.  Rick Perry is currently only a viable candidate because of the Wall Street/GOPe  Super-PACs constructed to support him.   Austin Barbour now handling all of the efforts in Iowa and beyond.  BIG TELL.

lindsey_graham♦ Lindsey Graham – As Limbaugh outlines Graham doesn’t stand a chance nationally.  But nationally is not where his value lies.  He can muck up the works in South Carolina, and he does have a close affinity toward another key player, Governor Nicki Haley.

Like all the previous examples, and specifically because it’s the #3 primary, Graham’s job is to keep Jeb in the game by splitting the “non-jeb” vote.   Graham doesn’t even make an attempt to look like a national candidate; he’s a party loyalist and is a tool for the RNC/GOPe to leverage.

kasich-john-gov-official-protrait♦ John Kasich – Kasich is the role model candidate for the RNC/GOPe.  Like Tim Pawlenty, Mitch Daniels, Mitt Romney et al, he’s the consummate GOPe loyalist.  If the RNC had their way every governor would be just like Kasich, just swell; a real team player.

A left-leaning big government moderate republican – from the perspective of the RNC/GOPe what’s not to love.  And Kasich holds sway over yet another massive batch of primary delegates, 66, up for grabs on the same day as Florida, March 15th.

Like all the other “splitters” Kasich is specifically on the plan to carve up the “non-jeb” vote and current polling shows how successful the RNC/GOPe plan could be.

♦ George Pataki (New York) and ♦ Jim Gilmore (Virginia) are both party loyalists, and both in the race for the same reason, split the “non-jeb” vote.  Have you seen any indication from either candidate that they are actually running a presidential race?

Super-PACs funded by Wall Street, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and structurally organized by the GOPe machine are all Pataki and Gilmore have to show for their presence in the 2015 primary.   Have you seen them travel to Florida? Texas? Ohio?  Have you witnessed them doing anything, anything at all, which would indicate they are actually in this race to become president?

SUMMARY – This team strategy was assembled by party apparatus, party loyalists, and those who benefit from the goals of the Mitch McConnell/John Boehner Republican party.  This strategy began mid-summer 2014. This is not a conspiracy, this is simply a group of like-minded professionals all within the same organization working on behalf of their individual best interests.

In 2014 during the planning phase, the “non-Jeb” candidates were expected to be: • Ted Cruz, • Scott Walker and • Rand Paul (with other outliers possible).

Ben Carson and Bobby Jindal were irrelevant, Donald Trump was never anticipated.

Thank you Rush Limbaugh for helping draw attention to the scheme !

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.

      It’s only amazing if you think they would prefer Trump to Hillary. Once you realize that Hillary winning the presidency is almost as good for the establishment as Jeb winning, it all makes sense. For that reason, Trump “taking the pledge” is less about the GOP winning in Nov 2016 than it is about kicking Trump to the curb ASAP. They’d prefer Trump NOT take the pledge, since that will be their excuse to exclude him from debates and otherwise hobble him. If they ever dare to kick Trump out of a debate, he should hold a press conference outside of the debate hall at the same time as their debate and answer the other candidates’ rhetoric in real time.

    This cycle’s plan is very similar to last cycle’s: we all saw that too many conservatives were running against one moderate Mitt. The conservatives split the conservative vote making Mitt the winner. How anyone can doubt that the party is doing this again this cycle is being willfully obtuse.

      The good news for Trump in Arkansas is that everyone has already made up their minds that he’s the one for us 🙂 Bashing him will only tick us off worse than we already are.

      Neither the Republicans or Democrats are in favor in Arkansas and they won’t be for the foreseeable future, and there isn’t anything either party can do about it. Once bitten twice shy I believe is the saying. For the most part Arkansans vote for the person not the party, and it’s been that way for quite awhile. The GOP won’t keep the advantage they just captured here for very long.

      Yes, move Rand Paul to GOPe. Two Saturdays ago, he convinced the GOP here in Kentucky to vote yes to a brand new March 5 Republican presidential caucus, so that he, Rand Paul, could run simultaneously for the Senate AND for president. As you said, Sundance, for primaries held between March 1-15, delegates doled out proportionately with election results, a change that will likely stymie a movement candidate.
      In our 2014 primary, Rand Paul also endorsed Mitch Sugardaddy McConnell, instead of Mitch’s opponent, rock solid conservative Matt Bevin.

    I’ve thought for awhile that the original plan was to have Hillary and Jeb be the nominees. The Clintons and Bushes are extremely close. Bill calls Bush Sr a father to him. Do we really think those two families would duke it out over the presidency? Nope. The plan was for Jeb to throw the election to Hillary. And in a big kumbaya Hillary will make Jeb her VP. they’ve told Jeb that Hillary is too old/sick to run two terms so after the first term Jeb would get the nomination. So after 8 years of Obama we would get 4 of Hillary and then 4/8 of Jeb. But Trump and Hillary’s own demise has thrown a monkey wrench.

        “During the Ford Administration in 1975, the CIA director started to worry about a big increase in efforts by the Irish Republican Army (IRA) to raise money at Irish-American bars in Boston, New York, and Chicago. The director needed to find out exactly who in Ireland was sending over IRA operatives to the US. So he called in a very young new agent by the name of Tommy Ryan who looked the part and sent him on a secret mission to Galway. “When you get to the third town on your list, find our contact whose name is Murphy and give him your ID code. “Just work into normal conversation, “Its sure a fine day today but tomorrow will be even better.” Then our contact will know I sent you.”
        When Ryan got to the small town, he started his search at the first large pub and asked the owner if he knew any Murphy families in town. “We have many Murphy families here,” the owner said. “If its Murphy the tailor you want, his shop is across the street.” “Or, we have Murhpy the mechanic two blocks north.” “Then there’s also Murphy the farmer two miles south of town, and my name also happens to be Murphy if I can be of any help to you?” “Well,” said Ryan a little cautiously , “Its sure has been a fine day today but tomorrow will be even better.” “Oh of course,” said the owner. “You must want Murphy the spy who lives around the corner at number four.”

      I don’t think there are many Trump supporters wearing blinders about his past (perhaps about his future, but not his past), so I really don’t think dredging up his past statements or positions will get any traction. I think people are willing to accept position changes in a rich businessman a lot more readily than in a career politician. As DT has said (perhaps not verbatim), “That was then, this is now.” It’s his way of saying he’s ready to do something different with his life, and his worldview has grown more conservative. Absolutely nothing wrong with that and in fact, I would guess many people admire it. Many of us can relate.

My concern is that the right has a chance to get the most conservative president in at least 35 years,with a Republican Senate who’ll be able to actually get something accomplished, and they’re about to piss it all away. They’re about to piss it all away for a mirage of a candidate because some people would rather kick the board over, give up and blame everything on “dem damn foreigners” than accept that undoing what liberals have taken 80 years or more of incremental work to enable is going to take more time and effort than any one president is going to be able to accomplish in 100 days.”


    “William, thanks for the (this time) polite answer, and I respect your concern.

    I can even appreciate your point of view, but I disagree. I believe that you believe that the reason the majority-Congress elected with our votes in 2014 did NOTHING is because there is a horrid president in the White House, and with a Republican president they will finally do what they promised and never did.

    I don’t believe them. I just don’t. They’ve squandered my trust way too many times. Does this mean that I invest my trust blindly in somebody like Donald Trump? Hell no. I am listening to him though without being told by a libelous lowlife like Williamson that Trump is a lowlife and there’s nothing there.

    I am hedging my bets yet I don’t trust anymore the establishment – a buffet serving the same M & Ms in different fake colors – to tell me what to do, who to like and who to despise or dismiss.

    No worries, if Republicans deserve to win, they will. It’s time not to take that support for granted, and it seems they will only do that under duress if at all. So be it.

    “Superior” idiots such as Williamson, George Will, The Kraut and the rest of them should listen to the dissenting voices or perish, politically speaking. The time for cowardly settling is past.”

    How far will the GOPe/CoC allow Jeb to fall before kicking him to the curb and latching on to another candidate? What will be the “tell” that will indicate this? Or are they fully committed to him regardless?

    You underestimate the egos involved.

    Many of them think they see an opening unlike any we’ve had for generations. An unpopular President that has gutted his own party (sound familiar in 2008) but to a degree that outstrips the MSM and others ability to cover it up. Krugman’s article about cult of personality is one example. They have gone simply mad like a hatter! Their candidate is so hated by her OWN people that the best she’ll get is 39% of the vote- if they cheat at the polls. So ANYBODY can win this time.

    I don’t think Carson is a shill, or Cruz (in fact he was the original target until Trump jumped in). Walker sees and opening. As far as Graham, that is ego. He can’t win, but he can’t not run. His buddy did, and God knows Graham is convinced he’s the guy with the answers.

    Rubio got excited because it was easy sledding for him so early in his career. He’s not ready. But he did get corrupted early, much to my disappointment.

    Kasich is backup. The RNC sees Bush is toast. They don’t like it, they will fight it, but Bush will NEVER get out of the blocks. He hoped to be the nominee and then face Hillary giving the electorate a choice between a dweed and an evil queen. Hoping we’ll hold the vomit down and vote for dweeb-ism.

    Sundance, take a bow. It’s obvious Rush is a reader. He got the analysis from you. No other reasonable explanation. His points track just a little too closely to your analysis for it to be coincidence.

      Dsp, you most definitely are unto something.

      In fact, more than Rush (who is a staple of consistent, overwhelmingly honest radio feedback in decades now), I dared suspect that Da Man himself, The Don, reads, well perhaps browses among other sources, Sundance’s blog…. Don or one of his men, yet I didn’t dare suggest it, for fear of giving in to wishful thinking.

      Well, if he isn’t, he should. Not everything we kibitzers say is gold, God knows, but the best of Sundance and his team of bloggers’ main posts is most definitely worthy of the Don’s attention.

      From your lips to God’s ears.

    NR is so dishonest. It’s pathetic anyone still reads there. They’re fools. No polite way to say it.

    Trump IS conservative on everything that matters. Without stopping immigration, it’s all moot. We don’t have a country. And in the few areas where Trump somewhat deviates from what some people might consider the conservative position, it’s not clear the traditional conservative position is correct.

    Trump doesn’t want to raise taxes on us just on the hedge fund thieves AND on himself. Essentially, Trump is a Buchananite on these matters, and the filth at NR didn’t like Pat either back in the day.

      Sorry man, I like to keep myself informed not using sources I agree with alone. I browse even HuPo, just to see with what idiotic notion they came up with.

      Keep your friends close and . . . you know the rest.

    I am lucky enough to be attending the National Federation of Republican Women’s convention in Phoenix next week. It should be interesting. Carly Fiorina will be there I’m not impressed since reading the excellent analysis of Sundance’s regarding the election primaries and delegate fixing. But Ted Cruz is our keynote speaker and for that I am thrilled!
    I also heard Rush this morning and thought ..hmmm, I know this…I actually got what he was talking about. It’s such a logical explanation but difficult to deliver as it’s complicated and most people are unable to figure it out. That is what the GOPe is counting on. Keep up the good work and carry the message of truth about the corrupt GOPe politicians. That people understand and that is why Trump is so popular. He is not a politician. Yeb’s political ads are stupid, you can tell they are out of context and fercyinoutloud 15-20 yrs old. esh!

    With the truth being laid out in such detail by Sundance, I just don’t get it. People are still supporting the GOPe candidates some even suggesting that Trump pick one of them as his VP. Are you kidding me? If they aren’t conservative and honest enough to be a presidential pick then they aren’t fit to be VP either. I hope Trump don’t fall in the trap of picking a black person or a woman just to get votes or because they seem to be a “nice” person.

      How about if Trump comes with a “crazy” VP choice nobody but him thought of yet seems so brilliant once it’s made?

        I have been wanting to say it for some time. I fully expect Trump to come up with someone we never would have though of. He’s smart as a fox and will make a great pick.

          Were I Trump I would pick Carson as VP. He’s well liked, well respected and just the guy to make a gutting of Obamacare happen.


          • justfactsplz says:

            I have to disagree. Carson leans way left. He is for gun control. Have you read any of Dr. Carson’s books? He is not true conservative. He just registered as a Republican in 2014.

      Agreed, “Identity Politics” must die.
      FWIW, out of the entire pack of 16,
      the only one I could imagine as being a
      reasonable fit would be Cruz.

      YET: I also think Trump would do well (also more likely) to seek
      another “outsider” with appropriate/commensurate experience.


  29. Another fine example of why the Treehouse is my go to source for FACTS and TRUTH. I wish I’d have kept a log of how often I have seen obvious, yet not often mentioned the reference to this blog, SD and the treepers by so many in the media/political realm. I KNOW they come here first for a reality check. Heck, a couple years back, I even saw a post by a prominent Congress critter on another site use verbatim a post I had left here. Awesome work as always Sundance…..!

  31. I’m wondering if Rush isn’t considering retirement after this election cycle. He’s been making a lot of expository comments like this on the Republican machine, as well as some starkly race realist comments. For instance, he laid the blame for the Virginia reporter shootings directly at the feet of Affirmative Action. He might be stepping things up.

    I would like to point out one thing to the OP. There is more at play here than just rule 40(b). I detail the entire list here — Based on OP’s observation, 8 states on his list are on mine. The critical consideration is that all 8 of those states have open primaries making crossovers highly likely.

    Whatever else you might think, there are a lot of Reganesque like Democrats that don’t like the direction of the country. Many blue collar being hammered by the economy. Don’t think they won’t cross over? Dang right they will. You will see exactly what happened in MS only done in reverse AGAINST the GOPe. Which I would suggest even with proportional assignment it might be quite possible that an non-establishment candidate could garner 80-90% of the votes.

    Then there are the big states that follow after that — NY, TX, Fl, CA. Any realistic expectation that Trump would not take NY if he is still at parity or better. He has favorite son position there. Florida? Well Miami-Dade is one of three keys regions to win that state. And who makes up a large part of the population there? Ex No’easters, Trumps people. TX? If the Super Tuesday falls to him Texas will go too.

  42. The other part of the GOPE & media plan is to keep focus on useless polls & pointless statements. We’ll hear more about Trump’s comments on Fiorina’s face than Trump’s use of eminent domain. Ted Cruz has done more to reduce government & stop illegal immigration than any candidate, but you’ll only hear how he performs at the debate, not what he actually did before the election session.
