Donna Brazile Predicts 25 People Running For Democrat President Nomination in 2020…

I somewhat agree with Mrs. Brazile, but I doubt she’ll ever be honest with the reason.

Anyone who has watched the ongoing internal battle within the larger Democrat party will note the institutional apparatus is about to make a major concession.  More than likely the Democrat machine will drop “super delegates” from the system.

The control authority will sell the removal of ‘super delegates‘ as confirmation they are reforming and listening to the people.  However, things are not quite as they would appear.  The institutional control agents will NEVER give up their control over the nomination process; they don’t even carry that genetic possibility in their DNA strain.

As an insider and life-long party benefactor, Donna Brazile outlines her view on the future. A future that almost everyone reading these pages will be very familiar with.

.

Remember the adage, ‘history repeats’. What Brazile is outlining is exactly the same conversation you might remember from the republican wing of the UniParty circa 2009; and expanded later in the 2013 GOP autopsy. There’s a strategy behind running a field of candidates; a control strategy; a “splitter strategy“.

Is the Democrat institutional apparatus actually going to do the same thing the Republican institutional apparatus did in 2012 and again in 2016?  Sure looks like it. Only for the Democrats it will most likely be successful.  The Dem voters don’t understand it.

The GOP “splitter strategy” first surfaced in the 2011/2012 presidential primary to the benefit of Mitt Romney.  Once we realized the rough outline, and then later saw the attendance at the party planning meetings, and subsequently watched the formation of the 2014 GOP rulebook for the 2016 primary, we called it out.

October through Christmas 2014 we predicted 10-14 Republican presidential candidates because it was obvious the chosen plan needed them. Additionally, if Donald Trump had not entered the race, the GOP would have successfully pulled it off. Jeb Bush would have been the nominee by design, and Hillary Clinton would be the current president.

So it’s not a surprise to see the Democrats formulating the same plan. The basic elements are the same. The DNC party apparatus (donors and influence agents) will select the candidate. Then they will construct the road-map to the nomination using blockers, controlled opposition, dark horse candidates and splitters to carefully guide that chosen candidate to victory. The Democrat electorate will be oblivious to it.

The national party apparatus coordinates with the state party machines.  Everything is always top down, timed, mapped out and planned by design.  This doesn’t mean the downstream state party individuals need to know the specifics, because they don’t.

The 2020 chosen Democrat presidential candidate will, most likely, be female.

Each of the remaining candidates will be shaped to guide that chosen candidate to the primary victory.

•Cory Booker (D-N.J.), •Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), •Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), •Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), •Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, •Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, •New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, •Senator Bernie Sanders (I or D), •Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, •Julian Castro (San Antonio Mayor) and •Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) will likely each play a specific role.

Again, only four to six of the splitters need to know the goal (who they will endorse); the rest simply flow as a natural outcome – it looks authentic that way.

The super-interesting positions in the splitter strategy are always the “Dark Horse” and the “Controlled Opposition”.

In 2015/2016, for the GOP plan, the Chosen One was Jeb Bush.  The Dark Horse was Marco Rubio and the Controlled Opposition was Ted Cruz.   Most of the rest were free-range splitters who would naturally just split the vote to pave the way for Jeb Bush to outlast and win with 15%-20% support.

The 2015 4-6 splitters who were doing party bidding included: Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, Jim Gilmore and John Kasich.

The others: Chris Christie, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Ben Carson and Bobby Jindal just needed encouragement, support, facilitation and seed money to earnestly (blindly) contribute toward the overall GOP party goal.

As long as no individual candidate gains more support than the Chosen One the entire system works.   For the GOP in 2016 the problem was Donald Trump was an ‘outsider’ who led the field from August of 2015 polling all the way to the convention.

[The GOP primary engineers did not anticipate Trump in their plan when it was constructed in 2014.  Anticipate the Democrats to correct this fatal flaw for their version]

♦ For the Democrats in 2020, so far they don’t have a Trump-type ‘outsider’ candidate; and unless a billionaire activist steps up they might not have one; or they might ‘create‘ one as part of the corrective control plan to address the ‘fatal flaw‘.

The Chosen One will be woman the donor class puts the greatest money behind. She will also have Hillary Clinton’s endorsement.   However, the Dark Horse and Controlled Opposition roles are pretty well established and predictable.

  • For the Democrats in 2019 Elizabeth Warren will likely play the role of Ted Cruz 2015 (controlled opposition).
  • For the Democrats in 2019 Bernie Sanders or Julian Castro will likely be the Marco Rubio (dark horse).

The Democrat electorate will be oblivious to the design.  I’m very confident the DNC will be able to pull this off.  Additionally, my confidence in the ignorance of the average grassroots Democrat, is very strong.

Why?

Simple.  If Democrats didn’t see the DNC manipulating the system for Hillary Clinton in 2015/2016, before Wikileaks beat them over the head with it, they are obviously not independently capable of thought and intellectual honesty.

    So Sundance – How do you think the chosen DNC candidate will fare against DJT in 2020? I suspect the DNC and RNC will be working behind the scenes as a coalition to beat him. Not sure he has the proprietary apparatus to beat both machines. In 2016 they were both working against DJT, but doubt they were coordinating….this time they will be focused and no doubt are laying plans now to beat him with any means necessary. In addition, I’m concerned that some of the DJT voters that were marginal, can be peeled off without the legislative success he promised.

            Things that will change the mind of the marginal Trump voter as defined above in MO is

            1. the quantity of the said marginal voter is pretty small
            2. the benefits of the regulatory and systemic changes in the US as well as the ‘swamp’ going on through retirement will be seen by the electorate.
            3. the greatly reduced effect of the diminished MSM.
            4. What the elites/dems/msm/GOPe are sure that the voters are thinking is completely different than the reality.
            5. World affairs seems more positive
            6. For the ‘marginal voter’ to vote Trump vs. green or third party they have to had been ‘red pilled’ in that they stopped thinking magically (a unique liberal phenomena) so they are seeing through the charade.

            I have yet to meet a Trump voter who regrets their vote for Trump and in fact all are even more enthused. I don’t speak of my politics in public bc I own a retail business and my business is apolitical as I’m happy to have my clients regardless of their politics.

            So I have to go through the usual machinations when mildly suggesting I was open to Trump’s ideas of deregulation as an opening gambit if I felt they were trying to gauge my support for another possibility vs that of a liberal who just comes right out and says they’re liberals and they expect everyone to be the same or it’s 5 minutes of ‘oh…another uneducated plebeian’.

            So as others have said….nothing to worry about

            Ace in the hole for Trump is that in spite of this well-described manipulation by the dims to create a “fool the fools again” candidate, aided by Mitch and the boys if it will bring down Trump, enormous numbers of voters will always vote their pocketbooks. If the corrupt MSM cannot destroy the economy by 2020, and even if its torrid pace slows, Trump wins–assuming there is no major, and verifiable, corruption in his administration that involves Trump.

            Each invented scandal made out of whole cloth loses some of the impact of the previous one. In fact, they may have already lost most of their impact. The Roy Moore outcome might be an indicator one way or the other.

          Not that we need to sit on our laurels and take things for granted–we still must campaign hard, however, Trump has drawn in many more supporters that are just enjoying seeing a good President in action.

          The economy went from lackluster to exuberant…..P Trump is the most respected world leader since Reagan–He is reforming immigration, trying to cut taxes, reining in the lazy, power-hungry RINOs, bringing respect back to our military, hitting N. Korea and Iran hard……and all the world is watching this.

          I predict that if the campaigns started tomorrow followed by an election, P Trump would win 400 electors……

As to the democrats, their party is dead, the same with the RNC, so as I have suggested ONLY vote for anyone who has not had 2 terms and not for any with more than 2 terms in Congress. Start searching for patriot candidates now and let them know no outside monies (direct or via lobbyists), no insider trading (which is still illegal), no benefits/perks because we did not vote for nor authorize and they will be removed, PERIOD. If we don’t stand up and take back the reins to Drain the Congress Swamp, then who? We need to stop purchase of their re-elections (meaning no outside support but with what they offer and if we like, we support them, you know, the way it used to be). We are the Republic by, for and of the People as Government and not the people we elect/hire as their job is to represent us and do as we want. What a concept?

      At the rate the Dems are destroying themselves, they may not have anything that would constitute a viable candidate. OK I’m dreamcasting.

      But, if Sessions got off his ass and woke up, started doing the job to prosecute and bring to justice ALL the corrupt Dems, their whole party leadership could be in jail. Wishful thinking again.

      So, reality based, with the continuing good news on the economy, Trump trimming the budget, and the payroll of swamp creatures, and the abysmal fundraising the Dems are doing, it should be easy for Trump.

      And, with a strong contingent of new blood cantoring (Love that verb we created here in VA-7) swamp creatures left and right in ’18 AND ’20 primaries, Trump’s agenda will get more and more traction as we move to 2020 Presidential election. Trump wins easy.

      ______________

      I don’t know… if any of the old paradigms will apply anymore after DJT.

      Especially if he succeeds as wildly as it appears that he’s going to.

      75 years (or 175 years, whichever you prefer) of career politicians nearly destroyed our country.

      One outsider, if he continues course, will have broken the globalist stranglehold, turned the entire country around, restored REALITY from the surrealist fantasy world of Marxist Utopian Leftism, restored the rule of Law (here’s looking at you, Sessions!), and brought prosperity back to America.

      And all of it, or at least in the first two years, without ANY help from ANYBODY in the political treason-class.

      And that’s the long-term threat DJT poses to the treason-class of professional grifters. He has exposed them all. DJT has accomplished more in the first year, against the entire establishment apparatus, than Obama, Bush, Clinton and Bush — COMBINED.

      And there can only be two possible reasons for that:

      1) candidates from the political treason-class are completely and irredeemably incompetent

      or

      2) candidates from the political treason-class were never trying to do what was in America’s best interest in the first place.

      Either way, going back to the political treason-class for leadership would be like choosing brutal slave owners guilty of crimes against humanity to be our bosses after emancipation.

      Why would anybody do it?

      If DJT’s presidency is even half as successful as it appears it will be, why would anyone vote for a career politician again?

      Being a career politician, having been ‘groomed’ and checked all the boxes to rise to the top of the party apparatus, is the blackest mark a potential candidate could ever have.

      That is the paradigm shift taking place right now, I think.

That’s a myth as Bernie is not really any more socialist than all the other Dims and besides, he’s been an insider for years. A democrat outsider would have to look like a capitalist I guess. I don’t think that’s going to happen.

        I think if the Dims are going to win, they are going to have to quadruple down on multiple voting, illegal voting, ballot stuffing, voting machine tampering, dead voters, and offering more 10 spots with a pack of Camels. They need to play to their strengths and the aforementioned all come naturally to Dims.

        I’m no Elder, but it Hinduism is different by several orders of magnitude.

        No doubt there are a significant number of PC virtue-signalling intellectual cowards who would vote for somebody BECAUSE they were Hindu.

        I just wish people would stop treating the leadership of our nation like it was a game show or a diversity consolation prize. It makes a difference who is in leadership… if 8 years of Hussein didn’t prove that to anyone, then nothing will.

        This is a reality, and I care not at all if anyone declares it racist, or bigoted, or ethnicist, or religionist, or any other ‘ist’ or ‘ism’, because above all, it’s true and it’s reality.

        If you elect a Hindu as president, it will make Hinduism more mainstream, and people being tribal by nature, that minority will be promoted and glorified. And if past is prologue, the majority will be maligned and scapegoated for every evil under the sun (again).

        As a member of the majority, electing a minority to represent me is suicidal. Witness the last 8 years of the Hussein. We’ve been down that road now. Twice. We gave it a try, TWICE, something which no minority would EVER do even ONCE if the roles were reversed (witness 95% of black people voting for tribal member, the Hussein).

        Any minority is going to be driven to do the same, if not instinctively, then he or she will be pulled in that direction inexorably, or risk being called an “Uncle Tom” and every other vile thing in the book. Who is going to stand up to that?

        No democrat, that’s for sure. And no Republicon I’ve seen, either.

        So people can call it whatever they want, but that is a reality.

        And I have no desire to see false religions promoted or elevated in status, not in this country or anywhere else, but especially not in America.

        I had a very similar concern with Romney (among many other reasons). People can live in denial or pretend if they want, but when you elevate someone to the presidency of the United States, it confers legitimacy on and makes ‘mainstream’ that person’s views and beliefs, to a significant extent.

        If those views and beliefs are in contradiction to Christianity, or to the majority (of which I am a member), why on earth would I ever vote for that person, in contradiction to my own interests and beliefs?

        The only answer — unless I’m a masochist or trying out for the virtue-signalling Olympics — is because the other candidate is even worse or more dangerous.

        Most of my life has occurred during a time when I had no choice but to vote for the lesser of two evils.

        DJT was the first opportunity in my life to vote for someone enthusiastically and with optimism.

        I have no desire to go back to the old way.

        Nixon looks like death warmed over – people who watched thought Kennedy won, people who listed on the radio thought Nixon won.

    Oprah will not run. Lots of reasons. 1, she’s pretty smart, and she knows it’s not the job for her. She can accomplish whatever she wants through business and outside of politics. There’s no reason for her to be President, she’s just as powerful NOT president. Lot of work with little reward, she has huge business interests everywhere that she’d have to seperate from, etc. There’s just no way in hell she’s running.

    Michelle Obama will not run. She doesn’t like politics and has no interest in being President. As crazy as it sounds, she also likes to dish it out but doesn’t like to get it back. Anytime she says something a little over the line or crazy, she dissapears for months at a time, she isn’t cut out for the rough and tumble world of politics like say Hillary or Elizabeth Warren or Nancy Pelosi are. They fight and don’t care how embarassed they are, they keep going. Michelle Obama has no stomach for that, and has no interest in it, she’d much rather spend the rest of her life on Vacation. Seriously.

    The interesting thing about the democrats playing this splitter strategy is that the democrats are playing with a much smaller bench that doesn’t even cover the whole country. I am assuming that the delegates will be divided up roughly along the electoral college weighting, which means that democrat delegates in red dominated states means something for the nomination.

    The republicans could set up strong candidates from Texas,(senator and governor), Ohio, (governor), Florida (Senator, former Governor). The democrats have California and New York, but who would deliver the Texas delegates to the chosen candidate? There is nobody that I can see that has that kind of weight in the Texas democrat party that the party can guarantee the votes will go to the favored candidate. California and NewYork have a lot of weight, but a lot of the rest would almost be wild cards.

    I think the globalist are losing their brain power and their drive. Also they are jealous of their power and do not produce ‘Alpha Male’ type offspring with the required brain power and drive. The people they recruit are usually amoral, cunning but again not Alphas with the ability to lead.

    Are they still dangerous? Most certainly, but look at all the dictatorships of the 20th century. How many lasted before they imploded.

    On top of that people are waking up and once awake they can no longer be tricked. If we can get decent congress critters elected and President Trump can consolidate his power, I think he has a very good chance of braking the back of the globalist movement.
    ….

    Another thing is the media. It has become increasingly obvious the media is very very corrupt. Between feeding Hillary the debate questions and now Fusion GPS paying urinalists to lie about President Trump, I think a move to break-up the MSM monopoly cartel may be around the corner.

If Dems put forth a centrist candidate for president who is more electable, but they also forced a leftist V.P. running mate on their nominee, what if after winning the 2020 presidential election they then find a creative way to remove the centrist from office, thereby installing the person as president who they truly want?

    In going further with this line of thinking, what if the Dem presidential candidate was a female RINO who has changed party affiliation? Someone like a Lisa Murkowski, the transition of which would be done over a period of time — not abruptly. The Dems allowed Bernie Sanders to change his party affiliation from Independent to Democrat to run in 2016. Why not a RINO with liberal leanings? Someone who would be most likely to draw away voters from President Trump.

If President Trump and his Team are successful in bringing about a major reduction in voter fraud, then the thwarted Dems will have to get more serious about fielding a more electable centrist candidate who will draw away the most voters from President Trump.

    Without the CRONY FASCIST school contracts the WINDOWS platform would collapse . Could the DNC encourage her to run ? Is her EGO manageable and puppet material ? Her husband is recognized around the world and the DNC could BRAND her as the powerful woman behind the MAN they all know ?

  36. Just my opinion. If President Trump doesn’t lock someone up by the time of the 2020 election he may not get a second term. I do think he will have put some big name people at the least waiting to be tried by that time. If he does that he is a solid in 2020 no matter what the dem do.

      Take a few minutes to think about the things President Trump has done this year. More than you would expect can be filed under “cutting off democrat funding sources.” By 2020 the democrats will be unable to mount a national campaign.

      ULTIMATUMS, harrison?

      Personally I am getting rather sick of all the ultimatums.

      If President Trump doesn’t blah blah blah, I won’t vote for him or he won’t get re-elected.

      UNGRATEFUL MUCH?

    It will be Gillibrand.
    Fired the first shot across the Clinton bow and got the first response.
    She’s relatively young. Relatively physically attractive. Schumer is her patron. She wouldn’t have made the Clinton remark had it not been cleared by Schmuckles.
    Her voice is not grating, unlike Hillary or Harris.
    She’s dumb as a box of rocks, just like Obama.
    She doesn’t have Obama’s narcissism.
    She will be easily controlled.
    It will be Gillibrand.

      Ok Dogstar (great handle, by the way), I’m going to remember this prediction of yours about Gillibrand. It won’t surprise me if you are right. But it also won’t surprise me if some rich guy like faceybookie or gatesy or some other lib tries to do it. Libs never are creative–they only copy what a true pioneer does.

    The Democrats would never allow (or need) an outside candidate, since their entire constituency and party represent pure big-government establishment.
    Their only difficulty might come with a rogue Hillary who has enough info on the rest of potential candidates to cause shear havoc within the party, thus, their systematic slow destruction of Bill and she. Perhaps their need to rid themselves of Hillary/Bill is the very reason the sex predator meme has become the media/Dem complex’s weapon de jure.

    Will Hillary’s endorsement amount to much? Can she stuff her ego long enough to play along? Does Bernie have any credibility left? Does anyone listen to Fauxcahontas at all? All evidence points to a solid NO.

    For most of the country, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand and especially Tulsi Gabbard are relative nobodies. There’s nothing in particular to recommend any of them. If Warren is to be relegated to the role of “controlled opposition,” I don’t see a woman as the nominee. All this sexual harassment uproar will have blown over by then and Democrats won’t want to resurrect it since the vast majority of the offenders seem to be Democrats. There aren’t enough voters motivated by this stupid glass ceiling stuff to elect a candidate just because she’s xx. Except for the governors (who people generally prefer over senators when it comes time to elect a president), it’s a pretty feeble list. Watch out for Terry McAuliffe. He can be a real charmer and come off as very likeable.

    I see the situation a little differently. A splitter strategy is a terrible strategy for picking a winning candidate. A 25 candidate starting field means that the vast majority of Democrats are going to emotionally invest at the start in a candidate who will lose the nomination. Huge numbers of Democrats are guaranteed to be disappointed in the eventual nominee, resulting in tepid turnout. A splitter strategy is a good strategy if you are trying to control the nomination process but don’t care if you lose the general election. A splitter strategy can also win in an environment in which the primary is effectively the final election. Rahm Emanuel ran a splitter strategy in his Chicago mayoral primary. Two well-qualified hispanic candidates, two popular black candidates, and one white candidate. This only worked because the general election in Chicago is pro-forma. The Democrat always wins. This strategy cannot work against Donald Trump because he has actual support. A splitter strategy against Donald Trump is all about managing the losing position — keeping the nomination away from someone not controlled by the machine.

    I think that the Democrats know they are probably going to lose the general election. The writing is on the wall. Barring a black-swan catastrophe that leaves Donald Trump as damaged goods, running against Donald Trump after 4 years of his MAGA agenda is going to be like running against Ronald Reagan in 1984. If all goes as planned, we will have a raging economy, a super-tight labor market meaning nearly zero unemployment and enormous international prestige., making whatever candidate the Democrats throw up into a sacrificial candidate — a modern Walter Mondale, who will be mercilessly labelled and mocked by Trump and his supporters all through the general election. Given that they need someone to run, they have at least two paths — an elderly “statesman” like Joe Biden, way too old for the job, looking to add one last footnote to his or her political legacy, or a young politician who lacks the experience to realize that their political future will be destroyed by direct electoral combat with Donald Trump.

    There is never a time for complacency, but having to fall back on a splitter strategy is not good news for the Democrats at all.

    I could see this happening. Democrats, if nothing else, are predictable and one thing both parties do is steal ideas from each other. That said, a lot will depend on what happens in the next year. So, here are my 3 possible candidate choices.

    1) We already know the Clintons run the DNC. Ms. Brazile revealed that already. If the next 12-18 months go by with no indictments, expect the nominee to be from their camp, someone still loyal. Someone who is opportunistic and yet easily controlled. Someone like Kirsten Gillibrand. Forget her most recent comments about Bill and Monica. Giillibrand was hand picked by Hillary to succeed her and making comments about Bill don’t bother Hillary one iota. For the Clintons, 2020 will be about playing kingmaker and holding onto power.

    2) If, however, the Dems are successful in divesting themselves of the Clintons via the various allegations and investigations then the other Dem power players, the Obama camp, can retake control and the nominee will be one of theirs. Someone who will carry on the Obama legacy, someone that can be just as sharp tongued as Donald Trump, someone who can remind the Dems of all the identity politic “successes” they had: Former VP, Joe Biden. NOTE: if this is the case, expect the field size to be smaller though still employing the same strategy. Nobody that has aspirations of being president in the future wants to be seen as the disrespectful one that ran against a former VP.

    3) This is the “everything blows up in the Dems face” scenario pick. This is the person that if the current investigations backfire and end up snaring and significantly damaging both the Clinton and Obama brands and multiple politicians go down as a result. As such, it’ll be a nominee that no one is currently thinking of, checks all the boxes but isn’t so far left (at least to them). Answer: Catherine Cortez Masto,Senator from Nevada. She’s female, Hispanic, believes in man made global warming, co-sponsored a bill to ban bump stocks after Las Vegas but is also a gun owner. She doesn’t want to repeal Obamacare but does think it needs to be fixed. She supports the DREAM act, is pro-choice and pro-gay marriage. She’s also a former state AG and federal prosecutor. With the trend of blue state AG’s trying to bring lawsuits against president Trump, they’d see her a big ally and could potentially pull Deep State support.

    So, there’s my opinion. This and $2 will get you a cup of coffee, as my dad used to say.

    Kamala Harris is Liberal Jeb, is connected with Hillary Clinton, is already fundraising, was pushed with the Nevertheless she Persisted.

    My Tripwires.

    1. Superdelegates remain. It is vital that the superdelegates all vote for Harris. In the DNC system, superdelegates are more than 15 percent of the total delegates with each one being said to be more important than 10,000 caucus or primary voters.

    2. At least 10 people in the field, with 5 of them being currently in politics.

    You can’t have the Coronation thing and you need splitters.

    3. Bernie Sanders does not run but Elizabeth Warren does.

    4. Tulsi Gabbard is immediately done away with, hopefully just figuratively. She is the genuine Sanders candidate and a threat to president trump.

    5. Corey Booker is propped up and Kamala Harris “marries” him.
    Kamala Harris has no biological children of her own, married a White man and has White stepchildren. This is all toxic to the black and Hispanic vote. Corey Booker cannot be run because he is unmarried and has no children and is widely believed to be homosexual. They are pushing girlfriends for Booker right now to make him seem heterosexual enough for Harris.
