“Operation Hummingbird” an identifier given (by me) to describe a very strategic approach of Karl Rove in getting Jeb Bush the republican nomination. “Hummingbird” describes a very a specific strategy to overcome a hurdle currently blocking Rove’s path, Donald Trump. Often it is easier to use a descriptive term, rather than spend 300 words having to re-explain a strategy as it expands and becomes increasingly visible over time.
Australian billionaire Rupert Murdoch wants the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal approved. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is constructing the trade deal. TPTA controls 40% of global manufacturing. Murdoch is Mr. Wall Street. Murdoch is supporting Bush to get his deal.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Lobbying Efforts 2015:
- Maintain Obamacare without repeal or adjustment.
- Promotion of federal Common Core education standards.
- Comprehensive immigration reform to include amnesty.
- Trans-Pacific Trade Deal Approval.
Both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush support these legislative priorities. They, along with Mitch McConnell et al, have been lobbied (campaigns paid) to support them. Failure is not an option. The game has been rigged. Wall Street will not be denied. Period.
The ultimate RNC/GOPe goal is to get Jeb Bush on one side of the primary equation, and then see the DNC get Hillary Clinton on the other side. Together they represent a Win/Win for Wall Street regardless of general election outcome.
This is the goal; this is the only goal; this goal will never be abandoned. They will never stop working to deliver this goal. Trillions are at stake. Jeb Bush is the only acceptable RNC/GOPe candidate; that’s why Jeb doesn’t even have to work hard – the outcome is pre-ordained, decided, done. Jeb Bush will never be abandoned. Period.
There are professional GOPe participants in this race to help deliver the Jeb outcome.
The GOPe participants are: Carly Fiorina, Marco Rubio, Mike Huckabee, Chris Christie, John Kasich, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki and Jim Gilmore. 8 Party insiders; 8 party loyalists; 8 party members working to support Jeb Bush.
The problem Karl Rove, the RNC/GOPe, Wall Street and the U.S. Chamber of commerce are having to deal with is Donald Trump. They have thrown everything at him in trying to take him down. So far, Trump has withstood all their attacks.
That’s why a few weeks before the CNN debate (Reagan) Library Karl Rove developed an alternate political strategy which can work simultaneously with, and parallel to, direct attacks. The alternate strategy was/is “operation hummingbird“.
Op-Hummingbird was executed exactly as it was predicted in the days leading up to the CNN debate. The Rovian GOPe strategy was quite successful as executed. In the next phase, Fox News becomes a big part of Op-Hummingbird because the target audience is Republican Primary Voters.
The ‘Op-Hummingbird’ goal is to promote Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio, and get them on either side of Donald Trump. Once that positioning is achieved they will use their very specific political skill-sets to take Trump down with the full assistance from a U.S media which thrives on the tearing down part. Isolate – Ridicule – Marginalize.
Op-Hummingbird began successfully on the night of the CNN debate. The successful results were immediately broadcast. For the past week all RNC/GOPe energy has been expended to push the Fiorina/Rubio narrative and support the ‘Hummingbird’ objective.
