Rand Paul and Rick Santorum Exit Presidential Race – Roadmap For GOPe is Going Along As Planned…

Both Senator Rand Paul and former Senator Rick Santorum exited the presidential race today.  Rick Santorum endorsed the GOPe candidate Rubio/Bush saying they held similar values.

Everything is happening almost as predicted in 2014.  Current events also highlight the key truism in the modified GOPe road-map since the entry of the unanticipated variable, Donald Trump.

The goal continues to be remove the unanticipated variable.  Encapsulated thusly:

…..Remove Donald Trump and Ben Carson becomes Herman Cain, Ted Cruz becomes Newt Gingrich and Rubio/Jeb take the role of Mitt Romney in 2012.  And everyone in Washington DC is happy, happy again….

There is ONLY ONE candidate who was not a variable in the original GOPe road-map, that candidate is Donald Trump.  As soon as Trump entered the arena the entire strategic splitter plan had to be modified.

The GOPe modification was brutally obvious.  Instead of immediately destroying Ted Cruz (the original plan) they changed the thrust of their approach to keep Ted Cruz viable (modified plan) thereby blocking Donald Trump from gaining a coalition which would keep Jeb/Rubio or Rubio/Jeb from the nomination.

This approach is why Mitch McConnell (and the DC Cartel) set up the Super-PAC and actually funded Ted Cruz in Iowa, and attacked Donald Trump.  [Shades of Mississippi ’14 strategy]

cruz McConnell

Whereas the original planned constructs were to use the splitter strategy to block Cruz, the introduction of Trump created an even bigger block of votes than Cruz was ever possibly going to carry.   This was/is the problem the GOPe faced for the past 7+ months.

However, as previously noted, as soon as the polling showed Trump well beyond Cruz in support, the GOPe knew they needed to keep Ted in the race to hold down the Trump coalition.

This reality explains why Donald Trump must eliminate Ted Cruz, focusing on him intensely, if he is to defeat the larger GOPe scheme.

If Trump were not in the race, the entire professional political class would have shredded Ted Cruz by now.   According to the original plan it was to have taken place this past week. The power brokers planned to dispatch Cruz into the little bucket of irrelevant constituencies they call “whacko birds” etc.

Donald Trump in the race has protected Cruz from the full weight of GOPe attacks.

The GOPe knew if they took out Cruz, Trump would gain a sizable portion of the non-GOPe voting block and become too formidable for their ankle-biting splitter scheme to work.  They modified their approach to keep Cruz in the race to split the non-GOPe faction.

Donald Trump is the only risk to the Old Guard in Washington DC.

♦ Ted Cruz was never a significant enough BIG PICTURE risk because he cannot gather a broad enough base to threaten the palace of power.  Senator Cruz’s rabid base, as vitriolic as it is, is still only about 20% of the larger republican electorate.  They represent the furthest right, the religious right, and Ted Cruz has ZERO CHANCE of gaining much independent or conservative democrat support in a general election.

♦ Donald Trump’s coalition is about 40% of the larger republican electorate, the ‘America-First’ nationalist grouping, and also has the potential to bring in massive independent support along with 10 to 15% of ‘America-First’ blue collar democrats.

♦ The GOPe coalition is the other 40% of the larger republican electorate, “the establishment class”, Wall Street, the NRO crowd, the Fox News pontificators, Corporatists’, Globalists et al.  Which again, has little independent attraction and zero support from conservative democrats.

Without Cruz a small portion of the far-right would join Team Trump making the GOPe faction the minority in a head to head.  The rest of the majority of the far-right would, as customary, stay home (it’s their historical pattern).  So keeping Cruz in the race makes sense now for the GOPe to go head to head against Trump.

Exiting Iowa, again as anticipated, the “splitters” begin to drop out.  As they do, their endorsements flow to the GOPe candidate, Marco Rubio.  This is by design.

Remember, when the road-map was created it was designed for Jeb -they wanted ‘next-in-line’ Jeb as dutiful for the pedigree- and Rubio was the (Non-GOPe Tea Party Bona-fides) “cross-over-guy” to bring the bitter clingers on board with Jeb when they reached Florida.

However, with Jeb’s failure to launch, Rubio is being pitched as the next best GOPe alternative – and all efforts are being made to keep him consequentially in the race.

Obviously Rubio carries the baggage of the Gang-of-Eight amnesty crap the electorate despise, so again the lift is challenging.  This is where you factor the financial benefits endowed to the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin to assist in pulling the wool over the sheeples eyes as they now chart a course for a “full-throated conservative” Rubio.

The collective GOPe Media approach is the same as it was when selling everyone the TPA endorser, amnesty promoter, common core advocate, non-budget guy, Paul Ryan (just before he aided the delivery of the massive $4 trillion Omnibus)  of course, it wasn’t his fault, nothing ever is.  Seems no-one in DC is ever to blame for anything…. these bills just write themselves, or something.  I digress.

The GOPe is brilliant at wearing down the psyche of the electorate over time.  Continual messaging from the professional punditry numb the voter into finally accepting the establishment selection.

EXAMPLE. [Remember the experience with 2012 as you visit]  Rubio is placed on a pedestal to benefit the plan, all ‘outsiders’ are worn down by the machine.  Then, at a strategic point, the pedestal is removed, attacks launched and when the smoke clears out steps Jeb Bush….  Remember this from May 2012?

romney

See how that works?

Again, watch the narrative as it is sold to you from Wall Street and the Media Corporations that benefit from GOPe scheme and graft.

…..First Remove Donald Trump – Then Ben Carson becomes Herman Cain, Ted Cruz becomes Newt Gingrich and Rubio/Jeb take the role of Mitt Romney in 2012.  And everyone in Washington DC is happy, happy again….

Latest National Polling from Morning Consult:

The goal of the corporate media and GOPe power brokers is classic Marxism.  They want to Isolate, Ridicule and Marginalize their enemy, Donald Trump.  This makes his supporters nervous and fearful….. If you find yourself supporting Trump, yet reluctant to be public and comfortable with your advocacy, you are being victimized by classic Marxism.

New Hampshire, despite its inherent political independence, is critical for Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, John Kasich and Marco Rubio because it represents a more GOPe friendly electorate. The GOPe road-map was always scheduled to begin in New Hampshire.

If Jeb doesn’t get a top three finish his role in the race changes entirely.  Jeb goes from being a candidate for nomination, to a participant in the race to get Rubio the nomination.  The contest between Jeb and Marco will most likely end in New Hampshire.

New Hampshire is also important for Donald Trump as a psychological factor. A second place for Ted Cruz would be considered a win for his team, but third place would also be a decent showing.

The advancing/”surging” GOPe Rubio wants to do well in New Hampshire to position a loud narrative in the longer time frame until South Carolina (11 days). Between New Hampshire and South Carolina John Kasich and Carly Fiorina are guaranteed to endorse Rubio; it’s part of the original road-map.

There’s a strong possibility Chris Christie will endorse Rubio in this phase, depending on Rubio placement and Jeb Bush’s finishing placement.  If Rubio ends first or second, he’ll wait – but if Rubio 3rd or 4th place, Christie’s endorsement more likely.

The Wall Street/Fox News agenda appears to be a well thought out plan to push Rubio as high as possible in New Hampshire, then he enters South Carolina where the endorsements of Congressman Trey Gowdy, Governor Nikki Haley and Senator Tim Scott await him. Those endorsements are strategically targeted to give Rubio additional lift. This is the original GOPe road-map playing out.

Senator Ted Cruz has a strong “Cruz Camp” of approximately 6,000 activated boots on the ground in South Carolina to deliver a similar outcome as Iowa – again they are housed in dormitories and doing the advanced work before all the campaigns arrive.

South Carolina is more critical to Ted Cruz than Marco Rubio because Rubio has a Nevada win already structured and waiting for him to pick up.

Turning to Nevada the GOPe machine cranks up the schemes again to provide another easily corrupted victory in yet another caucus event. Senator Rubio used to live in Nevada but that’s not the key to his victory – the inside GOPe machine will give him the win.

[If Christie doesn’t endorse Rubio after New Hampshire, he might between SC and Nevada -again, depending on need- to give additional momentum. Regardless, Christie will endorse Rubio prior to Florida if the Rubio/Jeb contest is finished.]

At this point Rubio is the odds on favorite to win Nevada and it is doubtful any amount of voting will offset the leverage carried by the professional republican party in that state. Unless an alternative wins by tens of thousands of caucus votes, the RNC will provide Rubio the state of Nevada.

*You’ll note* this is exactly the road-map as we previously discussed in 2014, only at the time we didn’t know which one, Jeb or Marco, would be THAT GUY.

Trump can still block the road-map, but if he doesn’t win New Hampshire it will be much harder. He’s not just competing against Rubio or Cruz, he’s also competing against Wall Street, Fox News and the GOPe machine.

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.

      The hardcore Cruz supporters are nutters and will never vote for anyone else, they will stay at home. Trump has to destroy Cruz’s credibility to win over voters who are anti-establishment but not part of a cult.

      Cruz has to be pushed back into the single digit space so that he doesn’t take delegates from Trump anymore; and once he is in a weak position (his core supporters are 3-7% of the total vote) Trump should offer him a nomination for the Supreme Court if he drops out and endorses Trump. Art of the Deal.

          Putting Cruz on the SCOTUS virtually eliminates him as a future opponent of President Trump when Trump runs for a second term. It’s possible that they will run against him despite he’s a Republican. And Goldman puppets can do little damage as SCOTUS judges. They don’t deal with those issues.

        Easy. One has to realize that Rove does know he’s GOPe even if he doesn’t think of it as “establishment”. He knows he is part of that group. He may not like the name but he’s in that group. Thus, by O’Reilly and Rove saying this of Cruz it makes Cruz still look like the other outsider/insurgent and in the eyes of the Cruz cult continue in that delusion to support “their guy”. This keeps Cruz viable to build a “take away” set of votes from Trump. Anything that goes to the Cruz faux outsider/insurgent cult at this point Trump looses. As Trump has to take Cruz out the Cruz cult will never vote for him. So by keeping Cruz viable as a (faux) outsider/insurgent it suckers in a certain number of voters who don’t see Cruz for what he is, when Trump takes him out he looses those folks and thus a bigger coalition he would have had. This is why its urgent for Cruz out of the race as soon as possible or at least single digit non-viable (he’s a dead-end vacuum for potential Trump coalition). Thus, Rove plays the game, he’s playing a kind of bad cop (i.e. “they know I’m GOPe, so if I rail against Cruz, they flock to him in defense of him against me”). You have to keep in mind GOPe and faux outsider/insurgent play just like the DNC when it comes to its voters, 100% manipulation to the ill informed.

The problem is that his ego is to damn big, and the real reason is he’s not what his supporters think he is. He will support the GOPe candidate and Cruzbots will stroke out, believe Trump a lib and vote Rubio or Cruz endorses no one. That wil then speak volumes to the man Ted Cruz is.

      There are two factions: The establishment (GOPe) and Conservatism Inc. (CINC), in the recent past there was also the liberals (RINO).

      When one hears of Jeb Bush, he is the quintessential establishment candidate. Fmr. Speaker John Boehner was also this, as is Mitch McConnell. Their main funding organization is the US Chamber of Commerce.

      When we get to Ted Cruz, he is the purest distilled essence of what National Review and the Heritage Foundation want. Their priorities are a bit different from the establishment, they are ideologically committed to the free market, and that means no borders. John Derbyshire calls them Conservatism Inc. Paul Ryan is their leader.

      Marco Rubio moves to each group as it benefits him.

      In the past, many of the coastal states elected Republicans like the Chafees (RI), Dan Evans (WA), Arlen Specter (PA). These were termed the Republicans in Name Only, because they were for all intents and purposes liberals. In the past they were not Democrats because the Ds were anti-war and dominated by labor unions. Since that has changed, they are no longer in the GOP at all.

      The Buchanan/Trump faction has no real organizational support, so I don’t think we are worth mentioning yet. But after a Trump victory, we will remake the GOP.

Think on it and run down the list. It doesn’t take rocket-science to exclude all others.

    That said, I’ve been keeping myself busy the last couple of days, and found that helpful with the usual fraud. No, I don’t believe for a second Mr. Trump “lost” Iowa, at least not in any verified vote count. Be that as it is, I haven’t lost faith in my next POTUS.

        I was watching the ABC movie on Bernie Madoff last night and in one scene one of Madoff’s sons, wanting more recognition in the company, called his Dad (played by Richard Dreyfuss) a “damned old s.o.b.” To which Madoff walked right up and slapped son in the face. Then turned and said, “You’ll never be old enough to call your father an s.o.b.”

      I dont think this should become a focus. He should pay attention to Rubio’s gains and dont let him get in the lead whille Trump and Cruz fight over Iowa.

      Poor sport, sore loser all the names cheaters call someone who objects to cheating.
      The media has been drenching the airwaves, the Twitter going wild with it.

      Make up your own mind.
      Was there cheating? Yes.
      Should it be swept under the rug if “gentle Ben” does nothing?
      (Just to keep from being called a name?)

      Haven’t we as a nation come awfully close to going down the drain for fear of being “called names?” (Like Islamophobe etc?)

      When do we stand up and say enough!

        The accusations of whining, thin skin, sore loser are never going to go away, any more than any other PC shaming ploy. Trump might as well fight back. He’s already asserted he’s a fabulous whiner. However he has to pick a battle he can win, so he can say “See? it’s worth fighting back.” Otherwise it confirms the loser meme.

      I love that Trump is making it an issue. He’s drawing a line in the sand- just like he does with reporters when he says, “Ask me a fair question.” Trump keeps saying “All I want is to be treated fairly” and now he’s got Carson to defend as well on this- which is awesome.

      Iowa’s caucus system has been an embarrassment for years and nothing has ever been done about it. Trump’s attention to it is way over due and it puts the other states known for their voter shenanigans on notice- do it fair, or we’ll see you in court. High time! Go Trump GO! Once again he’s proving he’s NOT all talk and no action!

        One thing that appears to be a pattern with Trump is that he has a keen sense of fairness. Trump wants “the game” to be fair. IMO he hates liars and cheats, and doesn’t even mind losing a battle as long as it’s a fair battle. That is why he cannot let this lie unchallenged. We The People have let such things go unchallenged for far to long.

      It would have been better if Trump had come out as a defender of CARSON’S right to have a fair electoral chance, NOT HIS chance! Much less appearance of pettiness, more concerned about integrity of the system. Making this about HIM is a tactical mistake, BIG mistake. He should have kept it COMPLETELY about Carson, and then he is the hero and savior of the honest electoral process.

    Rand Paul turns the primary process in Kentucky on its head, changing our May primary to a March 5 caucus, in which some GOP voters won’t even have a polling place in their own county. All so he can skirt KY election law which says his name can’t be on one ballot twice (Senate and Pres.). So he strong-armed the RPKY into this caucus boondoggle so his name will appear only once, but on TWO ballots, and then quits before the stupid caucus even takes place! Jerk. I can’t stand this guy more and more….

    Just one more way of pointing out that voters are here for the convenience of elected officials, not the other way around.

      This also means more dirty tricks in KY. I think Iowa’s caucus system proved fruitful to GOPe shenanigans against Trump. Trump needs to have a ground game firmly established in all states with caucus-type primary elections. Too many dirty tricks can happen on the ground in caucus states. Just my opinion.

    If this is true, why the hell are we focused on Ted Cruz, when the real enemy is Rubio/Bush? Carson’s support shifted to Cruz after Trump went after him and you all expect Trump to win Cruz’s support by attacking Cruz? I think Trump stands a better chance of winning Cruz support in taking out Bush/Rubio and not playing into the GOPe’s hand by further dividing the conservative faction. While conservatives fight, the GOPe is consolidating behind Rubio. Time to get smart and leave IA and Cruz behind and focus on NH and the real enemy Rubio/Bush.

  17. So, how does Trump’s exposing the Cruz fraud and spotlighting election fraud in general affect this road map? Because, minus blatant fraud and vote stealing, Trump would sweep the entire country easily. If he can spotlight their fraud and stop it, what will they do then?

    There is a little bit missing here. The “splitter” strategy was designed to work for the GOPe, but with Trump, it works against them.

    Come March 14, States become “winner take all” delegates, no more portional. So for example Trump is winning Florida with some 30% + beating both Rubio and Bush, yet as a winner take all State, both Rubio and Bush and whoever else stays in can’t beat Trump, he wins all delegates. So the splitter only works for the candidate with the most votes, if it was down to say Trump, Cruz and Rubio, Rubio would get all GOPE votes and probably enough to win.

    “If Jeb doesn’t get a top three finish his role in the race changes entirely. Jeb goes from being a candidate for nomination, to a participant in the race to get Rubio the nomination. The contest between Jeb and Marco will most likely end in New Hampshire.”

    I agree with much of your excellent analysis but this. Rubio hasn’t closed the sale. The donor class is deciding whether it’s worth burning a bridge with the Bushes to install Rubio. Remember it took Ted Kennedy to convince Democrats to jilt Hillary. You have to know your guy is a sure shot, and Rubio is just not a star.

    Jeb can hang back till a brokered convention and watch the Cubans go at it, even let Trump continue to dominate headlines. The media is happy. Then the dull general election begins with two dynasties and recycled memes.
