Tripwire Alert – Donald Trump Warns GOPe Brilliantly – Understands Mississippi – Places Chris McDaniel Lawyer Mitch Tyner Center Stage…

We try not to underestimate Donald Trump any longer.  In the beginning of this campaign we thought no candidate could thoroughly comprehend the tentacles of the Machiavellian schemes as well those who research these endeavors 24/7/365.

However, we are continually amazed at how The Donald not only understands the constructs, but has an insight to fire subtle shots in their direction that only those who are immersed in politics can see.   Not trying to give him too much credit, but damn, the man represents the smartest republican political strategist in our lifetime – and he’s also the flippin’ candidate.

Yesterday in Mississippi Donald Trump showed another of those intensely sharp insights.

It’s subtle, but when you are in the wave-length of understanding, it’s subtle like a brick through a window.

Donald Trump had a massive crowd of more than 20,000 supporters show up last night;  and most of the national legacy political punditry missed the back story of what makes this campaign rally so significant.  

Mississippi was the 2014 representative straw that broke the conservatives back – because Mississippi was ground zero for the GOPe attack against the conservative base of their own party during the primary season of 2014.

cornyn_graham_roberts_cochran_mcconnell_apGOPe candidate Senator Thad Cochran -vs- Conservative, grassroots candidate Chris McDaniel was the exemplification of elitist republican arrogance against the grassroots electorate of the party.

The Washington DC based GOPe, led by Senator Mitch McConnell, ran racist attack ads against their own party candidate Chris McDaniel just to protect their incumbent cohort Thad Cochran.

After McDaniel won more primary votes than Cochran, a run-off was needed.  The GOPe through the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee (NRSCC), where Ted Cruz was a vice-chair member, then paid Democrats to vote in the runoff to aid Cochran.

The racist attack ads, in combination with the intentional voter fraud, was the most visible and divisive tactic in modern republican history.  The GOPe behavior showed how they would do anything to remain in power, A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G!

Chris McDaniel’s lawyer in the fight against the GOPe in 2014 was Mitch Tyner.

Fast forward to the presidential primary of 2016 – The GOPe having recently showcased their intention to run a similar “Mississippi campaign” type of war against Donald Trump in the presidential primary race of 2016.  [Story Here]

So what does candidate Trump do?

Not only does he show them his awareness of how far they will go, he puts Mitch Tyner in the most visible backdrop of the stage:

What does this indicate?  #1) That Trump is 100% up-to-speed, on the people, processes, and plans within the Mississippi political hierarchy, and beyond; and also #2) He’s putting the GOPe on notice….

….subtle like a brick through a window when you know what you’re looking at.

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.

      I have the still image on my phone of the moment when Trump turns around to give what looks to be a thumbs up gesture in the direction of Mr. Tyrer. I was standing to the right of the podium on the front row facing the people seated behind Trump. Mr. Tyrer and his wife moved to those seats from another nearby section right before the rally began. I was there all day and I noticed the Tyrers from the beginning. I’ve watched all of Trump’s rallies so I paid less attention to his speech and watched the audience behind him. I can’t post images here from my phone but will send them to Sundance. This is amazing.

        I’m reminded of one of the Republican pundits back in the days of the Clintons, who may now be a GOPe type, saying “we have to win big enough that they can’t cheat.” Obviously he was not familiar at the time with the Uniparty meme of “aw shucks” close elections, pre-determined by Uniparty Global, but that aside, it’s rather ironic that Trump will finally provide just what he asked for, but only now that he’s on the dark side!!!

        This is the same kind of excitement I felt when Ronald Reagan ran in 1980.

        Reagan & Trump have a lot of similarities.
        – Both were actors
        – Neither is a lawyer
        – Both ran for President after a Democrat screwed up America
        – Both were Democrats but saw the light & changed to Republicans
        – Both have/had more common sense than the entire Senate & House combined
        – Both wanted to restore America to greatness & prosperity (Make America Great Again)
        – Neither one has been Politically Correct when speaking & just tell it like it is
        – Both ran for President because they loved America, not for their own selfish power grab (like Hillary, who could care less about Americans…to her it’s all about POWER).
        – When President Reagan was inaugurated he was 70 years old. If Trump wins he will be 70 when he’s inaugurated.

          Lawyers control a plurality of Congress the entire Supreme Court and many times the executive branch, there is too much power vested in ONE profession with-in our government. If any profession controlled this much of the power base such profession would regulate itself and wield exceptional power through out the halls of government as well.

    • I think Trump has also brilliantly targeted legal immigrants who want the American dream, and who want it big-time. His message should really, really resonate with these people, so he HAS to go after them. And he did. Here’s how.

      Have you noticed how he enunciates “LEGAL” and “LEGALLY” when he talks on immigration? He always finishes his “wall” spiel and his “and they will pay for it” part, with a sentence that ends with “and they will come in LEEEEGAHHHLYYY”.

      People predisposed to hating Trump, probably think that over-enunciation smacks of mockery, and even many Trump supporters probably question it. But NO – he isn’t talking to them. He is talking to legal immigrants – not fluent in English – who appreciate not only the extra clarity, but the PRAISE for what they just did, and are most proud of. That one word will resonate.

      So right under the media’s critical gaze, Trump targets LEGAL immigrants, while the PC-limited media assumes he’s offending them. And the media thus has no clue when the shocker “minority report” comes back, with Trump running away with all sorts of new-legal-immigrant identity groups! Too funny!!!:-)

        Yes t.c.. Spot on. I now believe, IMHO, he (Trump) has no intention of deporting ALL illegal immigrants. In his interview yesterday the anchor laughed when the topic of Mexico paying for the wall cropped up and said: ‘come on, no-one believes that’ and added that the same thing applied to deporting all illegals. And Trump said ‘It will be a PROCESS’.

        Which I took to mean that illegals who were law-abiding, had jobs and had been here for a long time would be given the required residency permits and allowed to stay, without the need to leave the country first. The anchor, who was generally fair, should have recognised the importance of this and nailed it down. But, bless him, he didn’t. In any event, Trump has put this on the table and will now deal with it as he sees fit.

        We try not to underestimate Donald Trump any longer.was how SD opened up. Three sentences later he gave us:
        * Not trying to give him too much credit, but damn, the man represents the smartest republican political strategist in our lifetime – and he’s also the flippin’ candidate.*

        I agree. This revelation dawned on me a while ago. But something else must be added to the list: great honesty, courage and patriotism. His enemies think Trump is a buffoon, a clown who is not worthy of their attention. They see him as a TV entertainer and this foolishness will be their undoing.

        I think it’s possible that the only politician in the establishment who ‘gets’ Donald Trump is Bill Clinton and I also think Trump is aware of this. In nature, two alpha males, sensing each other’s strength, will avoid a direct confrontation unless it’s unavoidable, because of the damage they can do. I think Bill Clinton will give Donald Trump a wide berth and, provided Trump doesn’t provoke him, will not constitute a threat. For the moment, beyond communicating to Hillary the consequences of engagement, I think Trump will be content not to stoke the fire. Even the mind numbed dummies in the media can see that Trump has clearly won this opening skirmish, and that Hillary is, effectively, defenseless and without any resources to attack her opponent.

        • Trump simply knows how to deal. He knows that the LAW is 100% on the side of the state on deportation. If there is leniency, it should be at America’s convenience and in America’s interest – nothing else. Not because anti-national socialists (anzis, as I call them) want to do what harms nationhood, by putting anti-national, sympathy-based propaganda ahead of OUR national interest.

          But Trump WILL build the wall, and Mexico can and will pay for it, with the price of a single new factory. Trump, again, knows that Mexico can afford it, and will go along. Trump is removing the “illegal card” from Mexico’s hand. And it’s about bloody time!!!

          Think you’re 100% right about Bill Clinton. Bill knows Trump can destroy his legacy. Indeed, any bad which befalls Trump is guaranteed to destroy it. Bill is also far less red than Cankles. He has done the math. Old alpha is shutting up, lest new alpha destroy his political and legal progeny utterly.

        I love how the media laughs at Trump because in his political speeches he speaks at a 4th grade level. “Oh because he’s so dumb! Not like us!” Facepalm. Try it sometime. It’s very difficult (see, I should have said “hard” not “difficult”) to keep what you say simple and use 1 and 2 syllable words instead of big mouthfuls to sound smart. All the while missing the non-native speakers and the less-educated voters. Of course the libs mock the “uneducated voters” who’re behind Trump. Jerks. Those “uneducated voters” are called “blue collar workers.” If they had educations, they wouldn’t be blue collar workers. And if they were behind Comrade Sanders, the media would be talking about how “the working man” likes liberals.

      From the article:

      “Sum it up before the jury,” Castellanos said. “I would make the case that America is in decline, about to slip over the precipice, and we need a president as big as our fears and as strong as our adversaries — and only one man has demonstrated that strength.”…

In fact, this advice strikes me as a Lucy tee-up, where Cankles can pull the ball away at the last second, in a variety of ways. And beyond that stuff (because no way do I spell it out for Red Cankles and 3% Jeb)…

        (1) The people who get “strength” already get it, and are already on the team

        (2) Trump and “fear” are never in the same room, much less paragraph, much less sentence.

        (3) More to come. But I’m calling that advice 3 months late and 50 electoral college votes short

        Terrible slogan. Too wordy. Puts action in the hands of the candidate (“change”) instead of in the hands of voters (“make”) so the voter doesn’t feel like they own or are part of anything. Garbage.

    Cruz was the NRSCC vice chair for outreach; tea party outreach that would be. He agreed to campaign and help win the Senate for the GOP on his terms that he would stay out of incumbent races, which he did. His role was to win new senate seats. I followed the Cochran/McConnell/Barbour campaign corruption closely and also remember Cruz in the middle of it coming on Mark Levin to expose it. I know it’s the silly season, but is there any chance of being objective about Trump’s competition? Here, does this help? Does it even matter? http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2014/07/ted-cruz-seeks-probe-of-mississippi-gop-primary-runoff/

      Spin. What is written there is PURE spin and a heavy dose of BS.

      If you actually watched Cruz through the Cochran/McDaniel/McConnell/Barbour fiasco you would know Mitch McConnell told Cruz to stay out of 2014 GOP primaries. The “win new senate seats” is pure spin. Cruz did what McConnell told him to do in October/November 2013.

      Cruz and Cruzbots, then as now, doth protest too much.

      When “exactly” did Cruz quit the NRSC? Yeah, I thought so.

        Um, Sd, Cruz did rally for some of the Senate seats. I was working on the seat replacement for Coburn’s seat. Not defending Cruz: but, he, Mike Lee, and Palin came to OK, then went to Nebraska, I believe, then somewhere else.

          I never said he didn’t. I said the “win new senate seats” talking point was BS spin to make his back-turning palatable to those who don’t follow politics.

          Yes, Cruz campaigned for Ben Sasse (example). But Cruz refused to campaign for conservative “outsiders” not approved by Mitch McConnell. Period.

            Sd, after the primary, you and I are going to have a little “BigMamaTEA attitude adjustment” just like the throw-down I had to have with Erick. (And we may have to have it via email, because I like to cuss!)

            You are becoming a stubborn old goat, and in this particular case YOU ARE WRONG! Ben Sasse IS/WAS an outsider candidate! So was Tom Cotton. TurtleHead did not approve of either one of these guys! Cruz has his faults, I know them well, but this was not one of them. TurtleHead and Cruz HATE each other.

            Until after the primary, I will set this aside. This week I am registering voters for Trump.

              Only if you stop putting words in my mouth. I never said Ben Sasse wasn’t an outsider – I am specifically referencing the people that Cruz refused to assist against incumbents.

              You are actually proving my point for me.

              When it benefits Cruz he campaigns for a candidate, but he is quite comfortable with the old GOPe guard in place.

              It would be more difficult to campaign against incumbent GOPe embeds. It would also take more principle to support opponents to incumbents. And that is where Cruz shows his colors. He supports the GOPe by maintaining the status quo for the GOPe incumbents. .

        Some thoughts: We watched what happened in 2012. It wasn’t, as alleged, that evangelical Christians didn’t turn out to vote for Mormon Mitt; they came out consistent with past elections. Closer to the truth was that Newt supporters were so bitter over the outcome of the circular firing squad that no way were they going to support the last man barely standing. Santorum supporters were a bit more forgiving because the primary season for their candidate didn’t get as nasty and personal. So, we lost again. Mitt wasn’t my first or second choice but a better choice than what we got. Now, once again, the animosity toward whomever competes with one’s desired candidate will likely be our doom. If more people would build up their favored candidates than berate and slander their opponents we might actually win an election. You might not agree, but every one of the repub candidates are better than Hillary. None are criminals; most are decent, yet imperfect, people. Just beware that, in the competitive process, you don’t lose objectivity and, worse, become less than honest. I get that this is a Trump forum. I don’t like when his record and words are twisted either. Thanks for allowing me to comment.

    Like so many others, I noticed the white-haired gentleman first sitting solemnly, then smiling, then standing and applauding. I had no idea who he was but he didn’t look like just another interested voter. Whether he reached out and contacted Trump or whether Trump contacted him is irrelevant. I fully realize the array of forces against any real change in this anarcho-tyranny, and I have no false hopes that any one man can get us out of the coming storm. But still, just to know he’s so well aware of his enemies and their tactics is so incredibly heartening. There’s still a long way to go and formidable obstacles to overcome, but I’m actually beginning to feel the faintest stirrings of hope, along with my rage and despair.

    Keep in mind the back story connection between Cruz and McDaniel, and what Senator Cruz does when he’s busted being part of the political machine.

    Cruz is smart when it comes to covering his ass. Much smarter than most give him credit for.

    In order to avoid the NRSC issue from 2014 being a problem for him in 2016/2016 Cruz needed McDaniel optics to look good. Cruz needed McDaniel WAY MORE than McDaniel needed Cruz.

    McDaniel carried MASSIVE leverage because he knew Cruz needed those optics to cover his ass. McDaniel’s political coffers are flush with Cruz cash as a result of that leverage.

    Ted Cruz did Chris McDaniel wrong. McDaniel played that leverage perfectly, and actually I don’t blame him. McDaniel carries an atomic sledgehammer that can wipe out Cruz with a single hit.

    On the opposite end of that spectrum, nobody has anything on Trump. There’s no leverage that Trump has to worry about.

    That independence is a mighty good feeling when things get ugly, and tough decisions are being made.

        When people talk about the GOPe cheating Trump out of the nom I think of the scene in 300 where Leonidas is getting ready to go parlay with Xerxes, his men are wary of an assassination and he says “pray they’re that stupid.” If Trump has 40%+ of the vote while everybody else is in the teens or less and they cheat him, it will be completely obvious to absolutely everyone that the fix is in, there is no democracy, will of the people be d-mned. We will then gleefully burn the GOP to the ground and establish a new, non-bought, conservative party, and nothing of value will be lost. Pray the GOPe is that stupid. Pray we are that lucky.

    Yet another way to keep Trump off the ticket is the fact that the ONLY people who will be allowed to vote for him in the primaries in most states will be registered Republicans. If you are an independent then in most states you can’t vote to put Trump on the ticket!!! Please go on line and confirm – change your affiliation to Republican. Pissed off Democrats, that means you as well.
