President Trump, Via Robert Mercer, Targets Jeff Flake…

Robert Mercer is a billionaire hedge fund manager who originally constructed the multi-million Cambridge Analytica data tool to aid Ted Cruz in winning the 2016 GOP Primary.

Mr. Mercer bought controlling interest in Breitbart Media for $10+ million. It was through Breitbart media that Mercer, together with Steve Bannon, deployed the Cambridge Analytica tool with a two year presidential poll (2014/2015) to vacuum up user data for later use in the 2016 republican primary.  Kellyanne Conway is part of their long-term relationship dynamic.

However, after Ted Cruz refused to specifically and enthusiastically endorse the winner, Donald trump, at the GOP convention in Cleveland, Robert Mercer kicked him out of his suite.  Robert Mercer generally stays in the background and his daughter Rebekah Mercer leads the political advocacy.  That said, they have the resources and disposition to destroy just about any political foe they choose to engage.

(Via Politico)  One of Donald Trump’s most generous political benefactors is providing a six-figure donation to a super PAC devoted to unseating Sen. Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican who has been fiercely critical of the president.

Robert Mercer, a reclusive hedge fund billionaire who was intimately involved in Trump’s rise and helped to bankroll his 2016 campaign, is contributing $300,000 to a super PAC supporting former state Sen. Kelli Ward, who is challenging Flake in a Republican primary next year.

It’s the latest sign that Trump’s political machine is preparing to take on Flake, whose persistent attacks have angered the president.

The White House has met with Ward and two other Republicans who are mulling primary challenges to the Arizona senator, state Treasurer Jeff DeWit and former state GOP Chairman Robert Graham.

A longtime Trump critic, Flake has made waves with the release of his new book, “Conscience of a Conservative.” He argues that his party is in denial about the Trump presidency and blames the GOP for his rise. Over the past week, Flake has launched a national TV tour in which he’s made the case that his party has taken the wrong course. (read more)

    I just realized something. The moment Ben Shapiro refused to back Donald Trump, was around the same time as he was fired from Breitbart. Breitbart owes its existence to the Mercer family. Coincidence?

      • Seems to me that owning property, as in land or buildings, and owning a business are quite similar, in that it takes some money to acquire them and then, more importantly, the actions of the gov’t become far more important to the property owners than to the non-property owners. If you don’t own any property (as opposed to a car for example), you are no more invested in your community, state or nation than your last meal. (read it again, until it sinks in.)

        It is not so much the money involved as the relationship between the citizen and the gov’t.

        The Founders would never have tolerated a bunch of congressmen making laws for the people while exonerating themsselves, like the current congress that wants to saddle all of us with federal healthcare, while they keep a special healthcare policy for themselves.

        Our congresses (and courts) have bastardized so many of our basic concepts that we are hardly the nation we used to be. To me, that is why Trump is so important to America, and is truly our last, best hope of returning our nation to the ideals of the Founders.

            The GOP establishment is trying to fool Alabama voters by suggesting that Strange is “their boy” (they know how unpopular they are in Alabama), when Mo Brooks is really “their boy”.

    AZCENTRAL reports :”Flake also has turned on his fundraising machine and is assembling a campaign team. He says he will report raising more than $1.5 million in April, May and June, with $3 million on hand as of June 30.” One source says he has 8 million on hand.
    At the current rate, he will prolly raise at least $5million more. I suspect that Rove and his Pac will kick in a bundle. You know the GOPe uniparty is going to fund him BIG time w/pacs. I don’t see any sitting Sen. campaigning or working for a challenger. The rats stick together. It is going to get expensive. If we can get good candidates to challenge the rats, we can spread them thin and we may have a chance. My question is, what role is Trump going to play in the primaries?

    All of the usual suspect fake news sources are reporting that Trump has privately said he would spend 10 million of his own money to defeat Flake. I have no idea if that is true or false.

Said this certainly wasn’t the same person he knew while Jeff was growing up. He went so far as to say that he was “ashamed” of Flake’s performance in the Senate, especially these last two years, and that he wouldn’t be able to support or vote for him in 2018. I was pretty surprised by the whole conversation, but as I reflected on it later, (and I don’t like to “categorize” people) the Mormon population is on the far-side of “very conservative”.

        Still, someone’s upthread comment about “Mitt’s Mormon Mafia” isn’t to be taken lightly– but if your own family discounts you, I’d say you’ve got problems.

    So survival is 14 months after “successful” surgery.

    McCain had surgery on July 14, 2017. So he makes it to September 10, 2018.

    I’m guessing here on the exact date. If he follows his mentor, Ted Kennedy… McCain will work part-time after he returns to the Senate, but he will send a letter to have his replacement before the Arizona Governor race in November 2018. So around August 2018– in1-year we could be rid of McCain.

    The Republican Primary for Senate is August 28, 2018. Looks like DeWit is going to run, so is Kelly Ward. Robert Graham a Trump adviser is also thinking about running.

    If Graham runs, I say old Flake gets taken out in the primary.

  31. Wait a minute, I’d never heard that Robert Mercer was assisting the Trump presidential campaign.
    I was lead to believe that Robert Mercer is a NWO globalist who financed Ted Cruz with the expectation of buying leverage to force a sweetheart settlement with the IRS rather than pay the 6-7 billion he owed. Candidate Ted Cruz threatening to abolish the IRS fit the storyline of Mercer being a top tier globalist who didn’t pay taxes.
    I don’t know if I can believe he’s one of the good guys.

      You didn’t know Mercer helped during the campaign but you have at your fingertips all those juicy details you were “led to believe?” Not convincing.

        Sherlock – it is all true. Sundance reported all that.

        Mercer had a big tax bill and I don’t know how it was resolved.

        Mercer backed Cruz until he dropped out. Mercer used his computer skills/tools to provide assistance to Cruz.

        Eventually, Mercer backed Donald Trump.

      • I don’t seek to convince anybody of anything around here, merely voicing my reservations in trusting Robert Mercer.
        I’d read sometime after the Trump campaign had earned the nomination they hired Mercer for polling or research or something to that effect. I don’t care that Mercer backed Cruz, that’s water over the political dam, however his now assisting President Trump & the MAGA Movement doesn’t erase by distrust of him.

    Except Trump…

    It’s not like they didn’t try.

    I don’t know who Mercer is but I love ❤️ him for supporting the people’s president. I’m so happy he’s going after Flake and I heard McConnell is now on his list. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👊🏻

    I’m very much uncomfortable with this. And with many of your reactions to this. I recall all the complaining and disgruntlement when liberal billionaires were donating money for races in other states – yet when it comes to a conservative (supposedly) crickets.

      Well, as long as it’s legal, big money will go somewhere. $300,000 to help get Flake out (not much in the large scheme of things) doesn’t seem like such an awful thing. I’m not for unilateral disarmament.

    Why did the President endorse the GOPe candidate in AL instead of Mo Brooks?

    I wish they would target Claire McCaskill here in Mo. She is ripe for the picking. Trump won big here so we could finally get rid of her.
