Post Iowa Caucus Results – Winners and Losers…

There may indeed be a feeling of disappointment amid many political followers who support Donald Trump today. A sense of disappointment because he did not win the Iowa caucuses.

However, long-time readers here will probably not hold as much angst at the result; and just about all of us are overly familiar with the sense of futility against it all.

shameful seven 1

These 2016 events are predictable, very predictable.  They are so predictable we outlined exactly how they would take place back in 2013, more than two years ago.

Before reading further – GO HERE AND SEE – These events are not organic, they are born from a very specific origin.  We stated in November of 2013 that Senator Marco Rubio would be propped up by the political machine in the 2016 Presidential race, for a very specific purpose.

There are trillions of dollars at stake.  The characters who indulge themselves within the scheme and graft will do anything to retain their place, power and influence.  None of this is happenstance.

The only way to have avoided the events of this election cycle, was lost in May of 2014 when no-one would pay attention to what was happening.   Even the allies of today, Ann Coulter, was on the wrong side of history when things could actually have made a significant difference. – SEE HERE

The frustration in 2014 was one of the primary reasons we focused on non-political discussion for almost two years.  Presidential politics is just not enjoyable when you can see the end-game, and have no option but to just watch the pantomime play out.

It was only the introduction of Donald Trump, as a non-DC connected candidate, that provided a modicum of possibility for the entire political apparatus to be destroyed.

Supporting Trump is easy, there’s simply nothing to lose.

So who benefited from the events last night in Iowa.

sheeple

 

The BIGGEST WINNER is Wall Street.   On the GOPe side, the institutional monetary influences, those who determine political outcomes, won with both Cruz and Rubio.  Both candidates fill a specific role in the original GOPe road map.   Keeping both candidates viable to destroy the real enemy, Donald Trump, is paramount if the globalists are to retain their influence over DC legislation to their own benefit.

The second tier talking head corporate media types, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, and to a lesser extent Glenn Beck, now have a victory to tout as evidence the anointed king and apostle Ted Cruz can mount a glorious evangelical challenge to the Clinton machine.

The loons on the far right, who actually believe the larger U.S. electorate will vote for a smarmy preacher who wraps himself in carefully interpreted pages of the constitution and calls upon the body of Christ to rise up within his followers, well, they’ll now believe it is also possible.   Remember, Jim Jones didn’t put the syringes in the baby’s mouths, their own moms actually did it.

The billionaires will keep feeding both, because the end result is a controlled outcome.  And, obviously, they control the outcome.   Cigars for all…

The SECOND BIGGEST WINNER is Fox News.  Their entire corporate media empire is working earnestly to push Marco “Gang-Of-Eight” Rubio to the forefront, and yet again undermine the basic principles of the U.S. middle class.  There is no level of effort too extreme for the puppets within the Fox Media corporate agenda.

The lesser puppeteers within the corporate media now have a narrative to push moving forward.  Marco Rubio positioned by Salem Media (Hot Air, Human Events, Twitchy, Red State et al) to be the “conservative who can unite the party“, or so they’ll sell.

Then there’s the blog-o-sphere fools who are so wrapped up in: A) selling a convincing narrative to convince everyone else of their intellectual magnanimity; and, B) getting to join the gleeful U.S. Chamber of Commerce elbow rubbing at CPAC.

A collective herd that has become too blind to notice their candidate has never been fully vetted.  Or that Hillary Clinton Inc. is joyfully smiling at the possibility of turning James Carvelle loose on the background of Marco Rubio writ large.

 

The BIGGEST LOSER last night was not Donald Trump, it was middle America.  The hard working blue and white collar Americans who are smart enough to know the cattle cars are not pointed toward the sea-shore….

….. Remember, remove Donald Trump and Ben Carson becomes Herman Cain, Ted Cruz becomes Newt Gingrich, and Jeb/Rubio take the role of Mitt Romney in 2012….

…. and then everyone in DC is happy, happy again.

      Never again though. He and Levin both, as well as Hannity can get bent as far as I’m concerned.

        Regarding Rush: It’s probably easier to be conservative when you aren’t a member of the GOP establishment (sarcasm). I usually listen to him when I’m driving, but I’ll be loading music into my CD now. Whether Trump wins the nomination or not nobody knows, but what he HAS done is rip the masks off a lot of “trusted” sources of information. FOX, WSJ, Levin, Limbaugh. There’s a lot of disinformation going on out there. We can’t make them shut up but we can cut off their funding. They can destroy us and our candidate and our country, but they don’t have to do it with our money.

          Real authentic conservatives haven’t won a significant policy debate in 20 years. When was the last time Rush, NRO, Rubiostate or the WSJ advocated a position and won on something that mattered to average Americans? One of the reasons the country has been getting rolled for the last 20 years is that the “conservative” pundit class is as crooked as the politicians.

        I don’t listen to them either.

        Actually, I never did listen to them except sometimes when driving and they happened to be on. And a few times I was curious to see what they were spewing so I tuned in for a few minutes, which is all it took to get their numbers, so to speak.

        I will no longer tune in at all. Not out of curiosity because I already know where they’re at.

        I also refuse to watch FNC at all. Not since this recent debate.
        I have to confess that although I said I wouldn’t watch after the first debate, curiosity did get the better of me. No more. Same with CNN.

        Funny thing is that Morning Joe and even Chris Matthews seem to have been the most honest and fair regarding Trump.
        I even said some weeks ago that I thought Chris Matthews had hopped aboard the Trump train, though of course he would not admit it.

        Now I just need to drop cable tv, which I’ve been saying I would do every month for many months now. Years, actually.

          I understand where you’re coming from. I watched Fox news all the time until the first Fox debate and then I turned off Kelly’s show for good. I still watched Hannity and Baier but all Baier does is hammer Trump with Krauthammer, Will and Steve Hayes. So now I stay away from Fox. I watch Newsmax, OANN and read the conservative blogs and will only watch the MSM if there is a debate. But even then we can watch it here on the Treehouse or on BB so don’t really need to listen to the chattering class to get “news”.

    I am so bummed. I could not face even this site until I got past the deep, deep depression since last night. First Rush and his outright lies yesterday. That really got me in my heart. So betrayed. Then, of course, his blatant support of Cruz who every day looks more and more like the absolute scum he is. I hope Carson’s comments go viral. Cruz is utterly corrupt to his core.

    I know Iowa is just the beginning and was a long shot, but, Lord, it hurts how degenerate our electorate is. Why is it so few have eyes to see and ears to hear? There is only ONE candidate who has arisen far, far above the sewage. Long may he win and prevail. The longer his campaign goes on, the more I see what a strong, decent man he is. You continue to plow the road, Mr. Trump. We’ve got your back.

      Cheer up. Nothing happened yet. Cruz got 8 delegates, Trump 7. First one to about 1300 is the winner. So in the big scheme of things, yesterday was a lot of noise about nothing.

    • The best way to get past it sometimes is to just go ahead and write that ‘I quit you’ letter that you have been thinking about. I had to send it yesterday to Rush; felt like I was ending a 35 year relationship, which I was. But I refuse to be abused any longer. The slimmer he got, the greedier he got. Wanted to be accepted. Well now he is. He is with the ‘other woman’ (GOPe). When she leaves him and cleans out his account, he can’t come crawling back to me! I slammed that door. After sending the letter, I didn’t feel the need to tune in today to see what was said by him, hoping against hope that he had seen the light. Like most bad breakups, the best you can do is slam the door behind you as you sing Gloria Gainors ‘I WILL SURVIVE’ at the top of your lungs. Peace.

            You reminded me of my own insane behavior. I voted Republican in all prior elections thinking that each election would turn the country toward a better future. The Republicans pleaded with the electorate to vote for them to take control of the House and Senate, and the electorate affirmed that request by giving the Republicans control of both houses. What did the electorate get in return? NOTHING but excuses for our elected officials impotent behavior.
            We are in another election cycle with the citizenry wanting anyone but a current member of Congress or worse a member of the Bush dynasty. I am not sure the voters really want someone outside politics, because I continually get assaulted over my support for Trump.
            I ask them why they would vote for one of the two sitting Senators who have done nothing to stop the current president and his failed policies. They do a lot of obstructing with no results which is supposed to appease the electorate. Rubio will continue Obama’s illegal immigration policies, and Cruz is Obama light on the same policies. I wonder if people will have the courage to vote for someone who is not from inside politics or be swayed by the very people who have continually lied to them to get their vote. Will the electorate do the same thing again expecting a different result? Time will tell.

I felt something really shift in my spirit about how evil and disingenuous he was being. Obviously an agenda: globalism and an unqualified candidate was just dandy with him. I am still seething with anger. It will take a while for my blood pressure to get back to normal.

        So very true Bart, some Ministers of our “Conservative Party” in Australia with the help of the scum Media white-anted and back stabbed our sitting Prime Minister Tony Abbott (a man who loves his country, is a volunteer fire fighter and life saver, volunteers weeks on end in aboriginal communities, stopped the influx of illegals arriving by boat into Australia, does not believe in the Climate Change scam, etc etc. The only problem he was too nice a guy and did not counter attack the schemers in his own Party). All this leading to a point where they had a vote within the Party and he was ousted. Lord Monckton warned that this was going to happen many many months prior. The reason was to get rid of him before the Paris Climate Change Conference, because he was a hold out and was not going to let Australian’s be scammed. Two quotes from Tony Abbbott: 1. “The Climate Change argument is absolute crap”. 2. “The Carbon Tax is socialism masquerading as environmentalism”. We now have an ex Goldman Sachs banker and lawyer as our new and unelected by the people Prime Minister (spit). So I have quit the political scene in Australia until Tony Abbott is again our Prime Minister (long shot) or we too find our own Donald Trump. Not only America but the world needs Donald Trump as the President to break this stinking cabal that is trying to ruin the world. Finally all the best to Donald Trump and his supporters.

      But I saw a couple that would be fine with Cruz “as long as he apologizes and owns up to this.” If they’re foolish enough to believe a fake apology then they will buy into Cruz’. I think it really depends on Carson’s leadership with them. If Carson continues to stay in the race they won’t leave him, but if he formally exits the race, some could move to Cruz or Rubio.

      Too bad Carson has painted Trump out to be “an entertainer” who is “not one of us.” Which is a post I read on his site this past week.

      The evangelicals seem to be the easiest to manipulate, which is why they are targeted election after election. Is really sad this election because America is BROKE and social issues are not a priority when the Republic herself is in danger.

      But you’re right: it is never good to repeat the enemies’ words, not even in jest, nor even as sarcasm, as it proclaims falsehoods into the atmosphere. And Trump himself knows this. When someone in the opposition says something derogatory or untrue about him, he is SMART NOT TO REPEAT IT, thus keeping it from once again being stated and injurious to himself and us. I noticed Trump is smart that way.

    I did some analyzing of the data from the 2008, 2012, and 2016 Iowa caucuses, all on a splendiferous Excel spreadsheet. The main takeaway for which I have no answer is this: A whopping 54% more Republicans voted in 2016 than in 2012. The Dems don’t report their raw numbers just constructed estimates. In 2008, an estimated 2,501 Dems voted, declining to 1,406 in 2016. Big decline percentage-wise, but not enough to explain what went was going in last night in Iowa. Were there big crossovers from the Dems who don’t usually vote? Newly registered Republicans who want back in the Game? Significantly higher voter turnout? I don’t, but it makes me wonder.

    Republican Caucus Total Votes (based on adding up untotaled counts)
    2008- 118,940
    2012- 121,501
    2016- 186,563

      The irony is that nominating Rubio or one of the other career politicians will depress GOP turnout in the General, just as it did in 2012.

Needless to say, the GOPe will attribute the high turnout to their own brilliance and assume that everyone is just dying to vote for one of the career losers.

      Trump needs to go to NH tonight and start talking about illegal immigration again. Forget complaining about the media. Get back to illegal immigration, then go after Rubio and Cruz in that order. Cruz has no natural base of support outside of the Evangelicals. Rubio is the real threat.

He sure didn’t before this, otherwise his followers wouldn’t have been tricked by Cruz. Trump, on the other hand leads us and lets us know what’s going on. I hope Trump can get some rest after this long Iowan campaign.

    Lame Cherry on Iowa voter fraud…..also states Bernie had the election stolen from him too. I believe Bernie always knew he could not win with Hillary but That is how bad Hillary is. Those 90 precincts were not stolen…that put Bernie in the win. And it could have been some GOP precincts that were lost too. Preibus is the head of this and he is a bad guy and Ryan is orchestrating a lot of this behind the scenes too……priebus is his best friend

    Actual vote count not released and Hillary wins all flips. What a country! Kind of like how Morsi became president of Egypt?

    Well, one thing that is known, if Cruz had not cheated, he would not have won…so did he actually win anything at all except to expose himself even more showing what a lying sneaky snake he is?

    • Cruz had a bittersweet win. Like the animal who enters a trap for the food, gets to eat the food but the trap door slams shut on them. Young ambition and pride.

      The funny thing is that once a person like Cruz gets a taste of the limelight they can’t get enough. Unfortunately for him, it was Trump’s limelight and not his, so Cruz’ narcissistic supply will run out. Cruz is not really someone who attracts people to watch or listen to him. The word “jonesing” comes to mind. Maybe he can drum up another carnie snake-handling exhibition with crazy Beck. In any case, let water seek its own path. Last time I checked Cruz was in Trump Sand!

    The anti ethanol candidate took IOWA by storm. This means it is time. Time to end ALL ethanol and Crop subsidies to IOWA. No Mas Baby. Terminate IOWA farm welfare now. They voted for it. Lets give them what they want.

    Rush was calling Rubio a Reagan Conservative today. YUCK. He also said Rubio is anti establishment. I was suspicious of him ever since Bush invited him to the white house one year but not Mike Savage. And restate is not readable cause it raises my blood pressure too much. This blog is a breath of fresh air.

      Redstate has no future. It’s not “smart enough” for the Establishment crowd and they have thrown their base — those upset with DC — overboard. Their comment sections are bone dry, which says a lot. The new guy there, Leon Wolfe, is an average pundit at best. Any political website can get hits in an election year but I guaranteed they are gone or sold by the end of 2017. Who is going to read an apologia for the DC establishment? Weekly Standard and NRO have that market cornered.

    It wasn’t a Hollywood ending but all things considered I think Trump accomplished something amazing. I’m thankful for Ted Cruz because he and Rubio split the vote against Trump. Cruz is a one trick pony, putting it all on the line in Iowa. I don’t see him having much traction past Iowa but I hope he does because I think Rubio benefits from Cruz’s supporters not Trump. Iowa is a unique anachronism and Cruz had the ground game but Trump placed well.

    The thing that democrats do well is door knocking and personal contact. If we want to see Trump elected, we can’t just surf the net and post on message boards. Eventually we are just preaching to the choir. Even if we think we are discussing an issue and enlightening someone on other sites, I’ve personally had reasonable and polite posts removed because it was not in agreement with the board’s agenda.

    So if we are serious about getting Trump elected we are going to have to roll up our sleeves and be prepared to get our hands a little dirty and do a little more heavy lifting. It’s not what Trump should have, could have, would have done. This is up to us.

    Cruz is as big a liar as Hillary. Not to mention that he gives me the creeps.

    My hope is that this minor setback for Trump will strengthen his supporters and motivate them to act. Now we know that we can not afford complacency. This second place finish may just be a gift.
