Trump’s Campaign Highlights The Hypocrisy of the GOPe “Growth and Opportunity Project”, The GOP Autopsy…

A recent article in U.S. News and World Report highlights a profound republican party irony and simultaneous hypocrisy.

On the heels of a devastating defeat of John McCain 2008, and immediately following the disastrous defeat of Mitt Romney in 2012, the power-structures within the Republican party decided to do a complete “GOP Autopsy” and figure out what they could do to start winning presidential elections again. They called it “The Growth and Opportunity Project”.

republican-national-conventionReince-Priebus

The officials (co-chairs) in charge of conducting the autopsy were: Ari Fleischer, a former press secretary to President George W. Bush; Henry Barbour, an RNC member from Mississippi; Zori Fonalledas, an RNC member from Puerto Rico; Glenn McCall, an RNC member from South Carolina; and Sally Bradshaw, a political strategist from Florida.

You would think their resulting 2013  100 page report with recommendations like:

♦ “We need to do a better job connecting people to our policies. We are the Party of private-sector economic growth because that is the best way to create jobs and opportunity.”

♦ “The Republican Party needs to stop talking to itself. We have become expert in how to provide ideological reinforcement to like-minded people, but devastatingly we have lost the ability to be persuasive with, or welcoming to, those who do not agree with us on every issue.”

…would lead to a gleeful embrace of Donald J Trump as the leading Republican nominee for President; because Trump is the ONLY candidate actually bringing in new GOP voters to the republican tent. Well, that would be IF you believed they actually wanted to “connect people to their policies“, or actually be “welcoming to those who don’t agree with them“.

Consider recently:

US News […]  Nearly 20 percent of likely Democratic voters say they’d cross sides and vote for Trump, while a small number, or 14 percent, of Republicans claim they’d vote for Clinton. When those groups were further broken down, a far higher percentage of the crossover Democrats contend they are “100 percent sure” of switching than the Republicans.  (link)

Yet, if you look at how the exact same GOPe Co-Chairs are talking about Donald Trump right now you might find yourself puzzled.

Candidate Donald Trump is doing exactly what the Republican Party Autopsy said needed to be done.  Trump is bringing in massive amounts of conservative-leaning independents, and conservative-leaning Democrats.   Exactly the goal of the Growth and Opportunity Project.

Yet, what do those Co-Chairs and Establishment Party Types say now?    They protest that the new patriotic, America-first Trump coalition, the vulgarians, are not the “right type” of Republican for their party.

Think about that.

        Because they want to keep their power and careers. Self interest is a strong motivator and the establishment Republicans react very negatively to anything that might threaten their social positions. And make no mistake, starting with the Tea Party and how it has now morphed into a wider cross-party insurgency, they know that certainly with a Trump election and possibly with a Cruz election their careers at the center of power will be over.
        The increased transparency of their previously discrete duplicity with establishment progressive/Left Democrats is galling to them because it was such a sweet deal for so long and, now with the rise of the insurgency, they can see it all coming to an end. Couldn’t happen to a better bunch.

        For years we have been told that the politicians lose their way because of “campaign contributions” and desires to get invited to the best cocktail parties. To that I now call BULL#$%& !!!
        Nobody sells their soul as the GOPe has sold theirs and does it in order to have a few bucks to run a few more ads !!! We are talking corruption here, in the back pocket type, foreign accounts probably etc.
        Trump doesn’t threaten the potential of these guys to be able to buy a few more ads. Trump has all the potential of disrupting their corruption gravy train !!!
        The “autopsy” was obviously a smoke screen in order to keep the lemmings giving and voting to keep the gravy train going. Either that or it was written in such a way as to help promote the Owners’ policy choices.

        Because they are corrupt, thus not that responsible; they are also not that bright — thinking themselves wise, they were fools.
        And yes, they have sold their souls for something: power (and money). That’s what it always was about. All the way down the chain, top to bottom.
        That was always the thing that was overlooked: it isn’t about having wealth; it’s about selling your integrity for it….therein lies the sin, and it appears as though the man they accuse of this; the man with the personal money, Trump, has not done this very thing. Therefore he shows them for the hypocrites and liars, the low creatures they really are — and they hate him for this.

      There ya, go, ajbenius. Exactly. The GOPe don’t seem to get that it’s their policies that are the problem and that their natural base and potential supporters still know the difference between right and wrong. It’s like that putting lipstick on a pig thing. They can’t persuade voters that pig isn’t a pig.

      We know much of the support the Democrats enjoy has been divorced from reality and morality for a long time. The GOPe seems to think all Americans will respond as enthusiastically to “the ends justify the means” as Democratic progressives. As progressives themselves, the GOPe, without realizing it, are vying for a demographic that is already committed, think they’re evil, no matter what they do, and will never vote for them.

      More importantly, the progressive left is a small but loud segment of the population that happens to have weaseled its way into some powerful positions. The bulk of Americans are not onboard and if the GOPe doesn’t wake up, like yesterday, they and the Democrats will succeed in changing in the demographics by flooding the country with unassimilated aliens that don’t know and don’t care about the Rule of Law or the philosophies of freedom that made America the goose that laid the golden egg. They just want an egg or want to force America to bend to their will. When they’re given the right to vote, legal citizen or not, and that will eventually happen, because it’s “mean” to not respect their “voice”, the Republicans will be forever relegated to a few Congressional seats or they will disappear into the dustbin of history. Other than for giving voters an illusion of having a choice, they’re already made themselves pretty irrelevant.

      Trump is proof that the GOPe’s strategy of trying to out maneuver Democrats by being a softer version of the same thing won’t work. If the GOP wants to ever be a viable party again, they’re going to have to regain the spirit of a party that freed the slaves and fought for equal rights, by freeing themselves from special interest, bad advisors, rigged polls and rediscover right and wrong…while there’s still time.

      • If I had to blame it on one thing, I would say that the key players in the Beltway sector of the RNC have created their own culture, which does not even learn from the greater culture, much less try to WIN in the greater culture, by changing it or by exploiting hidden stresses, tensions and flows. Trump is so far ahead of them, he is simply showing them by doing, rather than by convincing, which he does not, and we do not, have time for.

        The Beltway Boys get the report, but they operate on key assumptions within their culture which are the result of importing leftist gaslighting.

        Consider the following lies:

        All Hispanics must be approached through leftist talking points – we have to be RINO to get close.

        All Hispanics must be groveled before on the border with Mexico (talk about nuts!)

        Women voters demand a feminized persona in a candidate – avoid anything macho or that can be accused of macho.

        Women voters must be approached from emotion, not intellect, with the left defining how this is done.

        Asians are wedded to minority status – they cannot be pulled away to their more natural fit in the raceless GOP suburban demographic.

        American Indians line up behind their leaders, who shill hard for the left.

        Guns are on their way out – resist but accept, avoid the issue, and give into creeping disarmament.

        America will inevitably become like Europe.

        Borders are disappearing.

        America does not lead – it follows – “something”.

        And then Donald Trump just looks down this rocky, brushy, Democrat-mapped ski slope of pain and suffering, smiles, pulls down his goggles, and skis THE OTHER WAY, down the groomed slope where the rest of AMERICA is going.

        We keep saying the fish rotted, starting at the top. Well, I would say that the toxic stuff – the poisonous lies of the social Marxists – started there, too. The left has been leading the arguments by a thousand deceptive micro-persuasions, and the idiots in Washington, thinking themselves bright, just went along with all this junk, until even their own report was unreadable from a perspective of reality. And what’s worse, Trump didn’t even need the frigging report to know everything in it. Because the report might as well have been entitled GOP: DUH.

He used to run around our town, singing with very young girls…a bit creepy, considering his Japanese wife. It never ends.

              This is what gets me upset. The communists figured out how to take over the liberal side of the political continuum. Despite having grown up hearing Seeger, Peter/Paul/Mary, etc., I never knew they were communists. Having heard all my life of the Kent state Riots, I never knew that was the culmination of a few days of effort from SDS outsiders on Kent State campus. Ronald Radosh’s book “Commies” declares a very young Bob Dylan as yet another red.

              For us liberals, we willingly were enamored by these symbols of freedom and earnest grass-roots little-guy liberalism, having only a guitar, a flower, and friendship to fight the Evil forces of Big Business, etc.

              We had no idea they were the marketing campaign for getting us to gradually buy this good-versus-evil world view.

              Even now, many of us PBS viewers will watch the PBS specials covering the well-crafted but deliberately tailored. deceptive story and image of Seeger, and these others. And we will buy the DVD of the special in order to support wholesome, unbiased PBS. [As the Muppets morph into sleaze-peddlers].

                Your other comments are also incredibly astute. This is the Marxist/ Islamic tactic, long and slow infiltration. ‘The Hollywood 10’ is another terrific book that details that infiltration which is still going strong. This is what turned Reagan from a so-called ‘liberal’ into a centrist/conservative when he served as the SAG president.

It appears he is another Panderer like McCain et al. We must be very careful. Muslims are more politically savvy and connected then you know. Hillary’s aide has ties to The Muslim Brotherhood. As everyone now knows whenever Muslims engage in atrocities , such as bombings , serial killings or killings an Muslim mosque or person is “victimized” under vague circumstances. The MSM blows it out of proportion. The point is, CAIR and all their networks have an immediate response team that goes into operation. They had a mosque fire recently in Houston, and it turned out to be an inside job by a Muslim. After this inside job came to light no MSM story.

  13. GOPe should be careful what they wish for (at least for public consumption). That “Big Tent” thing, that “Don’t be such an ideologue” thing, that “Don’t get hung up on social issues” thing. Well seems like Mr Trump is all that in spades (and spades is trump!). What’s up GOPe?

    It’s really not that hard to figure out – “we the people” out here have been chomping at the bit to do something but didn’t have a “leader”. All ready to “revolt” but how, when, what? Yes, cold anger. Then, here comes Mr. Trump….like here comes our leader “trumpeting” — here I am! So we see him as the leader of our revolt that can actively support and finally, finally get ‘er done !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Have y’all seen this article about Veepstakes at Politico?

    “South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is about to fuel a week worth of speculation that the GOP is positioning her as a potential vice presidential pick.

    On Wednesday, one night after delivering the Republican response to the State of the Union Address, Haley will speak to GOP leaders gathered for the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting, according to two sources familiar with her schedule. The private event will be held aboard the U.S.S. Yorktown in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, near where party officials are holding the annual meeting in Charleston.

    The following day, just before Republican presidential hopefuls gather for the debate, Haley is expected to have a private meeting with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, according to a source familiar with her plans.”

          I can see what you mean about SC legislature corruption, and SC has also continued to vote in Lindsay Graham for what … 58 years? To say nothing of the guy I thought had real potential: Trey Gowdy. This election has flushed so many out into the sunlight, and even though it’s sad, it is also liberating for a voter.

          What this really means is that we voters will have to stop being so darned lazy and voting straight tickets all the time! We have to do our research into the candidates if we can get beyond the lies.

My first ever vote was decided due to the Bush, “read my lips” statement. I cast my very first ballot for Bill Clinton. A decision that I came to quickly regret. He brought shame on our country with his corruption and philandering. A national embarrassment. After that I cast all my ballots for the republicans. I admired George W and how he handled 9-11 and unified our country. I believed him to be a genuine person who loved our country. Then we got served up McCain and Romney. I held my nose and voted. My letter went on to say, that while I appreciate his family’s service to our country, their time has passed. I can’t vote for another Bush for president. I told him that his ship has sailed and he should let this go now. I told him I will be casting my vote to Make America Great Again! Trump 2016!!!! Maybe others can send him the same message.

        “But the biggest problem may be in a just-released email that has gotten little attention here, but plenty on the other side of the world. An email to Hillary from a close Clinton confidant late on June 8, 2011 about Sudan turns out to have explosive material in it. This message includes a detailed intelligence report from Sid Blumenthal, Hillary’s close friend, confidant, and factotum, who regularly supplied her with information from his private intelligence service. His usual source was Tyler Drumheller, a former CIA senior official and veteran spy-gadfly, who conveniently died just before EmailGate became a serious problem for Hillary’s campaign.”

    When the GOPe say they want to connect people to their policies what they mean is they want to create language to deceive the people into THINKING they are connecting. It is all about electioneering and “pushing the right buttons” to get them to the polls. So they hire guys like Frank Luntz who tells them what words to use to avoid negative connotations.

    He creates this language for the candidates. The use fancy computer generated turnout models to motivate people. It is trickery and deceit-like witchcraft.

    What they really want is to keep their positions of power and pursue a globalist agenda for their donors. That is why they did not embrace the Tea party and other conservative movements. They always win over the leaders of the the Tea party movements etc., i.e. Marco Rubio and others. Anyone who they cannot corrupt, they just eliminate. The same thing happened with Newt Gingrich and the contract with America Republicans. We have seen this before.

    They never had any other objective except to pursue the their agenda.

    The people wanted what Reagan was fro, what the “contract with America Republicans was for, and what the Tea party was for. Trump is really reaching out to them. Trump is winning them over. The problem with that is there is NO MIDDLEMAN between Trump and the people. The GOPe CANNOT have that because they ARE the middleman.

    Snip: A Kuwaiti newspaper is reporting that President Obama is working behind the scenes, both globally and here in the U.S. to navigate his way into the position when Ban Ki-moon leaves his term at the end of this year. The paper Al-Jarida claims Obama has already discussed the plan with Democrats, Republicans and Jewish officials in the United States, the Jerusalem Post is reporting.

    To thwart those efforts, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is working with “moderate” Arab governments to oppose him. Netanyahu apparently calls his efforts to thwart the President’s plan as “The Obama Project.”

    Here’s another bit of information from the 100 page report that they seem to be ignoring.

    “One glaring example of our tendency to conduct campaigns on autopilot is spending on TV. Simply
    put, TV spending is out of control. Outside groups spent approximately $1 billion on TV ads in swing
    states in the final six months of the 2012 campaign. Despite the extraordinary amount of money that was invested in TV by outside groups in 2012, the final results of the election barely differed from the polls six months earlier.”

    1 billion $ for nothing!

    How come Trump is never mentioned by the punditry unless they also mention Cruz?

    Typical government operation – spend a lot of time and money to determine the root cause of a problem, propose common sense solutions, then generate a copious supposedly educated voluminous report on the findings. And when the report is released to much foofaraw and fanfare, it gets placed on a shelf and forgotten in a few months time. If the go pee is to adopt some simple reforms, the one that would really help is do what you say you are going to do instead if talking about it. Yet they wonder why Trump is eating their lunch AND dinner.

    I could only read the beginning chapters… put me right to sleep.

    Full of Jeb! talking points.

    Also that they predict whites will only be 47% of the population by 2050. So they feel Hispanic outreach is critical to the GOP success.

    More immigrants, more give aways, welcome them with teddy bears, amnesty, and lots of Hispanic connected candidates for elections. More immigrants of all races to bring about the goal of white minority status. Crazy! Multiculturalism gone wild!

    I guess that is why they were so upset with Trump’s ideas. Not playing by their playbook.

    The GOPe has become a clubby group of snobs who SAY they want to win elections, but actually they only want to win if they can win with their inside club members (examples: McCain, Romney, Jeb Bush, Bob Dole, etc..) well maybe Rubio, but only if Rubio swears to become a member in good standing of their “insiders” group. If it weren’t so sad it would be downright funny! A bigger group of losers is not to be found anywhere, and the only people who hold them in good standing are they themselves! It’s called “rotting from the inside out”. This party needs to torn to pieces and put back together with fresh “Conservatives” at the helm because they, at least, have some idea of what the party should stand for, and the type of candidates who just might stand a chance of winning on occasion.

    “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction” in politics, as well as physics, too.
    Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are the direct, and inevitable, result or Barack Hussein Obama.

    Have been a Republican my whole life. Reagan was the last Republican that I really liked voting for. Ever since then it has been hold my nose, and vote for the lesser of two evils. I for one am overjoyed that once again we have a real man, that has not been bought and paid for running. May be the last election I ever vote in, but will really love voting for Trump. An honest man for a change.

    changing the name from GOPe…to POJ….Party of Judas…..the former republican party sold out a long time ago for money and power and personal perks.

    Trump should make certain that all parties, including judges and congressmen and staff, have to take the same benefits and healthcare packages as everyone else in the nation…NO EXCEPTIONS…and a huge salary cut and staff reduction for Congress.

    How did this happen? For the same reason the vast majority of commenters here refuse to recognize the truth. They fear and loathe innate human nature. By nature, i.e. BY DESIGN, we are tribal. It’s inherent in our DNA. The races are different in talents, criminality, impulse control, ability to plan ahead, ability to be introspective, ability to experience empathy. All have been scientifically demonstrated but squashed by both the MSM and the GOPe and cucks like so many here. Yes, the truth hurts, and the term “cucks” is oh, so vulgar, but the shoe fits.

    Look at all those pictures you posted. Really LOOK at the crowds. No, don’t focus on the fabulous few Negroes in attendance. No, take a break from your paeans to “Diamond” and “Silk” as being oh, so special in a way that no White person could possibly be. Do you think those Democrats who would cross over, that 20%, are Negroes and Mexicans? They are working-class Whites, often Polish or Italian or Irish, who have been economically destroyed by globalism and outsourcing, Their neighborhoods have been DESTROYED by section 8 savages. There will always be outliers, but the cucks love to focus on them and ignore the forest. LOOK AT THE DAMNED PICTURES. Trump is appealing to traditional Americans of EUROPEAN descent. The Americans that, until the ’65 act, comprised about 88% of America. White people. Yes, I know you are terrified of being called racist, and love MLK and don’t see skin color, but reality exists regardless. It’s really not that hard to say: White people support Trump.

    Stop with all the word salad about Asians or Hispanics being “natural” conservatives. Look at their native cultures – i.e. what developed from their inherent DNA. Look at what they vote for. Look at how they live. They are communal and/or authoritarian. They do not, either historically or genetically, have a predisposition to impulse control without exterior pressure, or creativity without descending into chaos. Don’t tell me about your friend’s maid, or your best buddy the Indian, or any other outlier. Stop fearing generalities and stereotypes, because they are inherently vital and useful tools humanity has always used to judge reality. DNA matters. Culture develops from DNA writ large. Race is a genetically closely related group of people writ large, and usually and naturally occupying the same geographical area which corresponds to an historical nation.

    Race is real. White people exist and have interests. Nationalism > politics. White people. Say it. Accept it. Stop fearing and hating your nature and history and right to have your own interests and countries. Or, you could continue being cucks, call me a hater, ban my comments, and so forth. That will make you feel much better. It won’t change reality in the least.

    Hypocrisy rightfully creates resentment. I think our politicians would be surprised just how generous we Republicans would be with our tax dollars, if we trusted the government that spent them. But our government is not trustworthy or responsible.
    To make matters worse, politicians treat their constituents as if they are all ignorant rubes when it comes to the making of the federal fiscal sausage. Yet, many of their constituents balance their budgets, save for retirement, and sacrifice immediate desires for long term stability. It’s impossible for folks who take such painstaking care of their own fiscal lives to fathom a government which demonstrates such reckless irresponsibility and carelessness with their own tax dollars.
    I’m tired of listening to people criticizing Republican voters as if their expectations are unrealistic or ill-informed. They aren’t. The fact is, that Democrats and Republicans in Washington DC are running a reckless, irresponsible, overly-complex, wasteful, and inefficient government, and making all of us pay for the consequences. It isn’t right, it isn’t necessary and it ought to change.
