Remember – Carly Fiorina was pushed to enter the 2016 presidential race at the behest of Mitt Romney. Billionaire Robert Mercer shifted funds ($500k) from Cruz Super-PAC KtP1 to start Carly for America (CFA). All activity prior to Donald Trump disrupting the GOPe Road-Map “splitter strategy”.
Today Carly Fiorina suspended her campaign – Announcement Via Facebook HERE
Carly is the 10th candidate to drop out of the presidential race. (She is also the 7th “splitter” to exit) The media will focus on questions surrounding her projected endorsement. She will absolutely endorse either Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio. However, her endorsement will be contingent upon the GOPe deciding which one is more viable.
Rick Santorum and Bobby Jindal are on GOPe Team Rubio. Lindsey Graham, George Pataki are on GOPe Team Bush. The South Carolina showdown will probably determine where iSnarly places her chips.
Reminder of Drop Out Sequence:
- Scott Walker
- Rick Perry
- Bobby Jindal
- Lindsey Graham
- George Pataki
- Mike Huckabee
- Rand Paul
- Rick Santorum
- Chris Christie
- Carly Fiorina
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is part of Team Rubio.
Going into this Saturday Night CBS South Carolina debate Team Trump need to get into the weeds on the historical Florida Eminent Domain issue (outlined below) STAT – both Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are carrying the same problem. Jeb was Governor, Marco was FL legislature and Speaker of House:
Former Governor Jeb Bush has a much more serious eminent domain problem to reconcile than current media reports are discussing.
During his tenure as Florida Governor Bush initiated the largest eminent domain private property confiscation in the history of the Sunshine State.
Bush’s action is now costing the State of Florida hundreds of millions in lawsuits and legal fees.
During a period from mid-2000 to January 2006 the Florida Department of Agriculture, at the direction of Governor Jeb Bush, began a program to seize and destroy citrus trees from Florida residents.
The action stemmed from an outbreak of citrus canker, a disease that weakens citrus trees and blemishes fruit. The fruit becomes less attractive and marketable.
[…] the department’s tree-cutting crews went through Florida’s residential neighborhoods, destroying orange, grapefruit and other citrus trees found within 1,900 feet of diseased trees. Delayed and hampered by lawsuits from homeowners, the campaign failed to stop the disease, which eventually made it to the state’s commercial groves. (link)
The program was essentially FLDA government authorized jackboots entering the yards and properties of Florida residents and destroying private property “without compensation” for their loss. Any homeowners who did not willingly comply were subject to arrest by law enforcement.
“They came with two sheriff’s deputies. They said if you don’t step aside we will handcuff you and take you to jail,” says John Haire, of Fort Lauderdale, one of several residents challenging the eradication program in court. (link)
Thousands of homeowners were affected and many saw all of their orange, lemon, lime and citrus trees completely destroyed. Governor Jeb Bush and the Florida Dept of Agriculture used “eminent domain” law as the underlying legal principle for their action.
Eventually the Florida State Supreme court ruled the entire process was unconstitutional government eminent domain overreach, and thousands of Florida residents sued the state.
The lawsuits have dragged through the courts for almost a decade, and recently hundreds of millions in compensation have been awarded in Lee, Palm Beach, Broward, Orange and Miami-Dade counties.
In total the state destroyed about 660,000 trees of private property owners.
West Palm Beach judge granted residents $11 million in compensation – Link – $20.17 Million awarded in Orange County – Link – More than $20 million in Palm Beach county – Link – Somewhere between $75 and $80 million estimated, including Lee County – Link –
[…] The reason the state is appealing and has appealed in other citrus cases is “no one in Tallahassee has the leadership and courage to say we did our best, in retrospect, we did them wrong, let’s move forward,” he said.
[…] “This was an actual case, a real case of eminent domain and the state needs to come up with the money,” she said. “I think David beat Goliath, and Goliath has got to quit.” (link)
As voters in New Hampshire heard on Saturday night, Jeb Bush believes it a horrible thing to seize property from private citizens; yet history would reflect when Jeb Bush himself was governor of the state of Florida – not only did he order seizures, by force, but Bush also refused to reimburse the residents for the property he unlawfully ordered to be removed and destroyed.
Methinks Jeb doth protest too much….
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)
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.
