I knew it all along. The pundits knew it. The insiders knew it. And in the back of everyone’s mind, we all knew it. Donald Trump is going to be stopped by the establishment. The evidence is mounting, and an all out war is brewing. According to The Conservative Tree House, there has been a GOP establishment road map for victory all along. And right now it’s going according to plan. The republicans flooded the campaign with 4 or 5 inside choices and 2 or 3 that could be manipulated and coerced into being puppets for the establishment.
The chaos and fighting resulting from the Iowa caucuses is but phase one of what will appear to be an unprecedented shift in momentum and media coverage from Donald Trump to Marco Rubio. There will be a staged battle between the old Bush faction and this new Rubio faction. The Rubio faction will win. If Trump accomplished anything, he effectively ended the Bush dynasty.
So-called conservative talk radio has also rallied to the cause. Following Ted Cruz’s stolen election in Iowa, Rush Limbaugh started talking up the strong third place showing from Rubio. He even told his audience that Rubio is a “full throated conservative” and he gets aggravated when Rubio is branded as an establishment candidate. This was shocking, considering that Cruz had captured the news cycle.
Trump talk will begin to wane. Fox News shifted to Rubio following his debate performance. They are also bashing Cruz to make sure his Iowa victory turns him into the Rick Santorum character from 2012. Cruz may actually be self destructing on his own because his campaign is completely ruthless and undisciplined. And who did Santorum endorse when he dropped out? Marco Rubio. And if Cruz was able to somehow sustain his run, he would be co-opted with establishment money and his faux conservatism would morph into an ideology more in step with the country club.
From all of the research and data that is out there, Rubio has a good chance of stealing New Hampshire from Donald Trump. Trump has stayed constant in most polls, but Rubio is catching fire. Some of these same polls had Trump up by 7 in Iowa. Of course there was rampant election fraud and misinformation in the Hawkeye state and there’s no reason not to believe the establishment will do the same thing in New Hampshire using different tactics.
So what does this mean for America? For the last six months, the independent voter has been energized by Donald Trump. His America-first platform hasn’t been tried since Pat Buchanan nearly upended George H.W. Bush in 1992. And then Ross Perot tried to do this without the establishment and was threatened off the campaign trail. Trump is a more formidable challenge to the status quo, but he’s one man going against a globalist group of financiers who not only have deep pockets, but own Fox News, CNN and have leashes on all of talk radio. America will be given the choice once again between an old woman who ought be in prison, and an empty suit who should be selling used cars in south Florida.
The only thing that could prevent this scenario from playing out is if Trump sees the writing on the wall and bolts the GOP. He needs to have a contingency plan where he can get on the ballot in all 50 states as an independent. Otherwise he will be in a war he can’t win at the GOP convention. There are no super delegates who will side with Trump.
If Rubio wins New Hampshire or comes in a close second there, the silent majority will be silenced again. The only thing that can stop this is a massive amount of new voters flooding the electorate. You would need a record high number of new participants to offset the fraud, the media narrative and the incredible amount of cash being funneled to this newly minted, fresh young face.
I dare say it’s a long shot for Trump or anyone else who wants to stand up for this dying republic.
