Enough Is Enough – Bobby Jindal Walks Away From #NeverTrump Camp…

Political battles are not that much different from traditional wars and battles.  Most of the attention is always focused on what’s visible, what you can see, the consequences.

GOP primary 2

However, it’s far away from the geography where the real stakes are determined.  Three levels: #1) The actual fighting, the battle space.  #2) The assembly of Generals at HQ.  #3) The cloistered closed-door meetings where the politicians decide.

The media keeps everyone focused on #1, it’s easier – there are “sides” etc.  But the GOPe roadmap, and the eye-opening “Splitter Strategy”, was found by focusing intense sunlight upon #3.

Now…

…When the stakes are at their highest, anyone is expendable.  As a consequence no-one is not expendable.

Remember that.

Focusing on the safer battle space of #1 – Bobby Jindal came out publicly and told the Never Trump folks, they were going too far:

The GOP establishment is done for…this race shows that. Voters are angry and frustrated…Donald Trump should serve as a wake-up call.

When huge chunks of your base are telling you something, you have to listen to them…let’s let the voters speak.

[…] The reality is, you can do the math. He has done very, very well. It is exactly what is wrong with the GOP establishment and it ignoring the will of the voters.

[…] If it comes down to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, I would certainly support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee. (link)

Woven between the words expressed by Bobby Jindal is a tactical reality few are paying close attention to.  The visible battles are being waged without anyone looking to see who exactly is orchestrating those battles, and for what larger benefit?

Here’s the sequential drop out order from the 2016 Presidential Race:

  1. Governor Scott Walker
  2. Governor Rick Perry
  3. Governor Bobby Jindal
  4. Senator Lindsey Graham
  5. Governor George Pataki
  6. Governor Mike Huckabee
  7. Senator Rand Paul
  8. Governor Jim Gilmore
  9. Governor Chris Christie
  10. Carly Fiorina
  11. Senator Rick Santorum
  12. Governor Jeb Bush
  13. Dr. Ben Carson
  14. Senator Marco Rubio

Leaving a two-year (Jan ’13 – March ’15) Senator, Ted Cruz, and milquetoast Governor John Kasich to oppose, and coordinate against, candidate Donald Trump.

What the media hide:

With the over-the-top help of the GOPe Generals (#2), Kasich won Ohio; therefore he has to stay in. 

Why?

Because if Kasich dropped out according to Ohio election law all of his 66 delegates become bound to the second place finisher, Donald Trump.

John Kasich cannot exit the race without helping Donald Trump.  Senator Ted Cruz knows this.  Senator Ted Cruz does not want Governor John Kasich to leave the race because of it. Yet Ted Cruz goes on TV demanding a Kasich exit.

When you accept these fundamental truths, you clearly see, yet again, the GOPe scheme involves Ted Cruz.

The political battle space (#1), as it is being sold via media, is a Potemkin village.

But most of you already know that by now.

How do you know?

Because you have focused on #3, where the real decisions are being made.

Today, surprise, Governor Jeb Bush endorsed Senator Ted Cruz….  We’ll talk about that.

Carefully.

Because, well, I don’t want to be Michael Hastings.

    In 2015, well before Trump announced that he would be a candidate, Kasich and the OH legislature moved the data of the Ohio primary so they could make it winner-take-all. It used to be early and was required to dole out delegates proportionately. So no doubt Kasich knew at that time that he would be a candidate, that he would likely win all of the delegates, and he could hang on to them through the first round of voting. It makes me wonder if he was ever a serious candidate at all. Did he even do any campaigning? Spend any of his own money?

      Kasich is a Lehman operative, rewarded with a political office and lucking into some oil money so it appears he now knows more about finances than he did at Lehman. Backing Common Core, expanding Medicaid and talktalktalktalking too much in hopes that something will stick (or slip unnoticed such as his confrontation with the LEO he called an “idiot”), Kasich reminds me of many executives preening under their own PR. He is beginning to believe all those nice things said about him by people who really don’t care or who are paid to write all those clever compliments. Never believe your own PR people, John. They’re just doing it for the dime.

        All. Politicians. Are. For. Sale. Keep repeating this until it becomes real. While some politicians are less for sale than others, all their careers are dependent on donated money and the most stable source of donated money comes from special interests with specific political/economic/social agendas they want politicians to support. I’ve been a supporter fof Cruz for several years because I think he falls into the “less for sale” category and because, relative to most other choices, he’s the better one. Trump on the other hand scares the absolute pee out of other politicians because he’s the guy who have them money and expected them to do things for him. And now that he’s in politics he seen as a traitor to his class, someone who knows all the secret rules of the political class’s games but who has now gone over to the other side. Thus Trump is, for the GOPe, a double whammy. First they’ve been completely dumbfounded by the sudden appearance of the insurgence, something they’d never anticipated. And then, to compound their fear and loathing, the established order of things is upended by Trump. The guy who used to give them money is now running against them, promising to tear down the very apparatus he help to build and maintain. GO TRUMP!!

      Different states have different rules. I noticed that Alaska delegate counts changed and when I looked at what happened it was that Rubio originally got 5 delegates. After he suspended his campaign those delegates were allocated to Trump and Cruz (now a 14-14 split).

      This is the only state where that happened so I guess some states have rules where delegates are only allocated to active candidates.

          And after reading the Ohio rules, if Kasich drops out anytime before 18th June (30 days before convention), his delegates go to Trump. The date of the last primary is 7th June, so Kasich is definitely going to the convention even if he doesn’t get another delegate.

I will look but no guarantees. And I did look but found no rule because the search engines were drowned with Rubio dropped out, Kasich Ohio 66, etc. I did find an article that was not too helpful, said basically “different states have different rules about the delegates of candidates who dropped.” Big duh. Some go to 2nd place, some are unbound, some are reapportioned as in Alaska.

    File the lawsuit against Cruz to determine his eligibility status and be done with this. The Consular Report of Birth Abroad was filed in 1986, 12 years after Cruz re-entered the US in 1974. His mother renounced her American citizenship in 1968, Cruz was born in 1970 and shows on his birth certificate “Canadian” as citizenship status. This isn’t that hard. Why has he sealed whatever file he has if there is nothing in there? Answer, he can’t prove he is even a US citizen.

        I’d be willing to bet mama Cruz’s “renunciation of U.S. citizenship” is based on her acceptance of Canadian citizenship in order to register to vote in Canada, which it’s documented she did. There is probably no formal document renouncing U.S. citizenship, though I’d sure like for some neutral, reliable authority to review her and Rafe’s records to see just what’s in there.

        They don’t have to be made fully public. Just let a federal judge (preferably a Reagan era appointee) look at them and recite the relevant facts obtained into a public, official record. Also, from what I understand, the records are not “sealed” in the sense that there is no court order or anything preventing disclosure; however, Rafe hasn’t authorized their release, so they sit in Canadian gov’t files unaccessed. At this point, it’s probably better to let Cruz stay in to split the GOPe votes from Kasich. Then, when Kasich finally throws in the towel, take Cruz down based on eligibility, just as Jeb always intended to do.

          No, it’s not documented Cruz’s mother registered to vote in Canada, if you’re referring to her name being on what’s called an numerator’s list. Those lists include all residents, by neighborhood. Then “enumerators” would go door to door to verify the list, checking if they’re correct both in terms of residents and citizenship. Being on the list did NOT mean you were a citizen. When t hey came by you had to verify the info, and whether you were a citizen, somewhat like our Census. I know because I was on an enumerate’s list in Ontario when I lived, there. I had to tell them I was not a Canadian citizen and thus I couldn’t vote..

            Now hang on a moment. We know that Rafe’s father DID become a Canadian citizen. We also know that according to the father, his wife also did that at the same time. The Question is when did it happen exactly. And the US has law and had law at that time which says when you become a citizen of another country, you forfeit your claims to citizenship. (Though I’m not sure that applies to anything the IRS does to people outside of the US as they seem to require a document showing renouncement.) But by US and Canadia law, “dual citizenship” can only happen by birth or similar means by which a person cannot knowingly choose of which nation to be a citizen.

            So there’s something to it all. The question is when specifically. If she became a Canadian citizen before Rafe’s birth, he isn’t a US citizen AT ALL. His paperwork and all other details are essentially the result of his mother’s fraud — not his fault, but that doesn’t matter. (Many people would have liked to have seen Schwartzenegger run for president, but that whole natural born thing…)

            I just want to know if anyone has anything concrete about precisely what and when things happened.

        With reference to the above posts regarding the mysterious Mr Cruz’s citizenship. Firstly, all immigration records are sealed (unless you are a Chinese hacker or release the information yourself). However, the State Dept. does file an open record with the names of US citizens who renounce or relinquish. I assume this is placed in the Congressional Record where it is open for all to read. If the mother did so, it would be a matter of public record (though back then the Record would not have been digitalized so a trip to the Library of Congress would be necessary and figuring out what name she was currently using).If the mother did not relinquish her US citizenship then she would have had to file with the IRS annually, as the US is the only jurisdiction (except one other) that taxes their citizens on their world-wide income. But IRS records are also sealed for everyone (except if you are a Chinese hacker or L. Lerner, or disclose them yourself). Considering ‘mum’s’ rather dodgy history, there may be much to hide or obfuscate there.

        A CRCBA is issued to all parents who file with a US consulate for their eligible children and is therefore considered as a US birth certificate in lieu of the original foreign one issued under the foreign jurisdiction. Usually a Social Security number is also applied for at the same time.If a passport is issued there is a slight difference to the one issued to US citizens born in the US. It is a caveat, since dual citizenship requirements have changed significantly over the years.

        As I read it, and there is little that is factual out there, it is fairly certain Mr Cruz has an eligibility problem.

Ted is a Canadian who apparently never naturalized to become a US citizen. There is no CRBA, only a Canadian birth certificate. When Teds mother decided to move back to the US, she simply crossed the border showing her US birth certificate (no passport required back then) and reclaimed her US citizenship using her BC to get a drivers license etc. If she never filed with the IRS while living in Canada it means that she either is a tax dodger or that she had legally renounced her US citizenship.

So if Kasich drops out, would another candidate have to submit their delegates names for approval again?

Since we know about Andrew Breitbart and all the others killed in small plane crashes or possible fake heart attacks, we think about an MBZ being hacked – the dead driver had complained about the very same type of thing the day before – as something not at all farfetched.

    Jindal should never have entered the presidential race, as is the case for Rubio and Cruz. They are not natural born U.S. citizens. Santorum’s eligibility is ????

    A natural born U.S. citizen is an individual born on U.S. soil to U.S. citizen parents (plural).

    These three are frauds. This natural born citizenship will see the light of day when Donald Trump is sworn-in as the POTUS. ‘Birthers’ will be redeemed and Afterbirthers will be prosecuted.

    I had no idea that was actually what would happen to Kasich’s delegates. You might have mentioned it before, but I guess I wasn’t paying attention. All this time i’ve been wondering just what the hell Kasich is doing still in the race. It makes so much sense now.

    Help me out here, I’m so exhausted from work I can barely read. 🙂 Is the Ohio delegate transfer info in this Ohio Revised Statute? The Ohio Republican Party Rules points to section 3513 of the Revised Statutes. I think this section is the one that pertains to the rules for a candidate who withdraws. http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/3513.31v1 I will try to make my way through it but I’m hoping someone else more awake than I am can do a better job.

      I slogged my way through that section and other sections and i”m just not seeing it.

      Frontloading HQ says this: The Ohio Republican Party rules are mostly silent on the matter of the release and/or binding of delegates. Article X, Section 1(d), the special rule added to make the allocation winner-take-all for just 2016, awards all 66 delegates to the winner of the statewide Ohio primary. That is the extent of the binding. Not included is information on how delegates would be released in the event that the winner of the primary withdraws from the race in addition to any description of how long those delegates would be bound at the national convention. Unlike other states, the number of ballots bound is not specified in the Ohio Republican Party rules. http://frontloading.blogspot.com/2016/03/2016-republican-delegate-allocation-ohio.html

      So maybe it’s not true that if Kasich dropped out his delegates would be given to Trump, but it looks like there is reapportionment in some other states. I didn’t even know that.

  27. Not true. OH delegate rules require the delegates to be bound to Kasich on the first found of voting, NOT to the second place winner Trump. Read here:
