It’s been right there all along; a sense, an instinctual sense, a gut feeling, since late June 2015, and in all the subsequent months, it just kept reoccurring – and with the passing of events, each time it became more and more difficult to dismiss….
Before getting to the heart of this entirely speculative presentation, and specifically because it’s so far out there that, well, if accurate, a litany of people will claim we had to hold some insider connection, we must restate and remind everyone – we have never had any contact with any entity from the Donald Trump organization. Period.
Two semi-connected articles surface recently which tip the scales toward actually sitting down and writing these words.
One is an obscure but accurate summary of the GOPe Road Map and Splitter Strategy (which we have outlined since 2014, and presented with specific detail in 2015) which a person took up, expanded and tried to explain in one article – presented HERE. The second article is a more mainstream source, the New York Times presented HERE. (both should be absorbed)
Now let me try to explain.
When Donald Trump announced his candidacy on June 16th 2015, something odd presented itself almost immediately. Within the oddity you will actually find the reason why CTH was supportive of Trump from the first day of his announcement. You see, the odd thing was Team Trump did stuff almost ‘as if’ he/they knew the same things we had been writing about for the 18 months previous.
In June, July, and August 2015, the actions Trump was taking, the specific things he was doing and saying, were exactly the things we would predict a candidate would do and say if they too knew the GOPe Road Map and Splitter Strategy was the grand scheme to be defeated. But it couldn’t be, right? Right?
I mean c’mon. There’s no way this guy could actually have tracked all those insider meetings in DC (2013, 2014) and beyond: with the RNC Rules Committee, the national and then state RNC apparatus’s, the BIG donors, the Wall Street affiliates, the professional consulting class, the legislative leaders and meetings with Tom Donohue (CoC) etc. There’s no way he could have looked at all of it and reached the same conclusion.
I mean, there’s no way this guy would have looked at all of it and come to the same conclusion as this little obscure discussion blog on the internet that no-one pays any attention to. Right?
Yet the stuff Trump was doing, was ‘as if’ he were two steps ahead of them. Heck, in hindsight, two months ahead of them.
When we outlined the pathway for Jeb Bush it seemed incredulous even to ourselves, so when people said we were nuts, whacko, conspiracy theorists, and “good researchers on other stuff who have jumped the shark to the land of insanity” (that one from Lucianne was LOL funny), it did not come as a surprise.
However, as each domino hit the next domino in the strategic sequence we had outlined in the road-map and splitter strategy, via tripwires, something weird happened. The shouts of derision grew quieter and quieter.
But the entire thing still seemed rather unfathomable even to us as we tried to explain the unexplainable, and contextualize something that was infinitely more Machiavellian than we could rightfully explain. Yet now, almost everyone accepts the broad strokes of the GOPe constructed plan were indeed as they always seemed to be in the original outline back in 2014 and early 2015.
But that’s not the point.
The weird part was watching a presidential campaign operate ‘as if’ they knew all of this stuff even further afield of our own advance recon efforts.
One of the key aspects that kept drawing us back to this sense of campaign synergy was how relentless Trump was on Jeb Bush. Even when Jeb dropped to 4% in the polls, Trump kept nailing him and keeping him from re-emerging. It was ‘as if’ his campaign knew the goal would always be Jeb – and that is the foundational block of the entire GOPe plan all along.
Here’s the even more crazy speculation part. I’m now almost 80% convinced that Donald Trump came to the same conclusion of the GOPe intent as we presented on these pages for the past 18+ months. Somehow, when he announced/launched his exploratory committee is was not an “exploration” of viability per se’, but rather a 3 month strategy session for how to defeat the entire apparatus underpinning the plan.
There are just too many coincidences, too many specific moves that were taken, which align with what a campaign would need to do – if they too reached the same ultimate conclusion.
Having said that, it appears in hindsight the phrase “let Trump be Trump“, was not about letting candidate Donald Trump be the overly brazen vulgarian larger than life figure who somehow manages to find a way to turn certain defeat into victory.
No, “let Trump be Trump” in this context is: Let Donald Trump execute the careful plan he has developed over the past several years, to eliminate the hurdles that no-one sees, except him, that lay afore him.
You see, this Trump is the intensely strategic long-range planner Trump who has developed his own roadmap to defeat their scheme. All of it “them”, and all of “it”.
If this overwhelming ‘spidey-sense’, this crazy speculation you are reading, is actually accurate, then EVERYTHING you are seeing today – which everyone sees as reactionary – is not a reaction, but a calculated and methodical pro-active plan. A brilliant plan.
A brilliant plan filled with intense foresight and insanely high levels of strategic thinking which even includes pre-staging people, events, and situations along a very specific path where and when Donald Trump knows he will need them.
If this is accurate, and again I reassert this is insanely speculative, this also implies the Chris Christie aspect was indeed a calculated pre-determined move at least 18 months ago. And what’s more, even beyond Chris Christie, there’s every reason to believe Trump has an ally in at least one more camp still in the race.
My hunch is now telling me there’s a person who was bitterly betrayed by the “establishment” inside Team Cruz; and almost everyone can guess who that person is (with enough thought, and a paradigm shift toward pre-planning). A person waiting, like a trigger, to be pulled if needed. However, at this point it’s doubtful they will be needed.
If you are still with me, and if you are generally understanding what this means in the larger context, then we must also accept that Trump specifically knew what lines of attack would come when the GOPe entered their desperation mode. [“A drowning man is also a danger”]. If accurate Trump would have pre-planned for the racist attack, for the sexist attack, and for the financial attack (tax returns) etc.
A level of pre-planning that puts him in a position to actually create the attack itself and make it useful. Meaning, he’s baiting them.
Every move pre-planned, every action -while seeming to be a reaction- is actually a pro-active execution of the plan. Let Trump be Trump, is let Trump execute his plan.
If accurate, Trump is intentionally giving the appearance of vulnerability in order to bait the opposition into an attack he has a crushing response already previously thought out.
If his opponent doesn’t attack strongly enough to create the benefit of the intended impact he desires, he simply appears more vulnerable; and that makes his opposition attack with more intensity. However, all-the-while Trump is waiting patiently to use the atomic sledgehammer, waiting, waiting, waiting….
He wants to be called a racist, he has a plan for it. He wants to be called a sexist, he has a plan for it. He wants them to attack intensely because the responses are more valuable when the attack is strongest. In short, he has thought through all the angles, all of the ‘if-this-then-that’ approaches. He’s been months ahead the entire time.
If accurate, Trump is baiting the RNC/GOPe because he knew all along that removing Jeb Bush would lead to an open convention challenge. To bring out all the enemies into one battle venue, he needs to give them a trail to follow – he needs all of them to come out of the shadows feeling safe in their attack (See Paul Ryan today).
Donald Trump wants his enemies, America’s embedded enemies, emboldened and feeling empowered. He also wants to give the illusion of vulnerability – he’s drawing them out.
I told you this was “out there”. But if even remotely accurate, my hunch is Trump has some major “closing surprises” just waiting to be triggered….
