Brutus lured his friend Julius Caesar, with sweet words, to stabbing knives on the Ides of March eons ago. This weekend millennia ago, Judas succeeded, with a kiss, in his plot to betray Jesus of Nazareth in what to this day is remembered as the climatic event in Christendom, The Passion. We’re in the Season of Plots, of betrayals, when killers let loose on civil streets.
Are not you moved, when all the sway of earth
Shakes like a thing unfirm? O Cicero,
I have seen tempests, when the scolding winds
Have rived the knotty oaks, and I have seen
The ambitious ocean swell and rage and foam,
To be exalted with the threatening clouds:
But never till to-night, never till now,
Did I go through a tempest dropping fire.
Either there is a civil strife in heaven,
Or else the world, too saucy with the gods,
Incenses them to send destruction.
This is the season of plots. Treachery moves behind every tapestry. Consider the latest ominous news via the New York Times, greeted with foolish welcome, like Caesar did Brutus, by the gullible Hillary2016:
US President Barack Obama has privately asked the top Democratic donors to support front- runner Hillary Clinton, now that it is increasingly becoming clear she would be the party’s nominee for the presidential elections, according to a media report.
Obama made the “unusually candid remarks” during a top Democratic fund raiser in Austin, Texas last week, The New York Times reported. “Mr. Obama chose his words carefully, and did not explicitly call on Mr. Sanders to quit the race, according to those in the room,” it said.
This is a false flag. It is ominous news for Hillary Clinton and for Hillary2016. Like Pontius Pilate, Obama washes his hands. When the final betrayal of Hillary Clinton arrives Obama will be able to say that he did all he could to help Hillary behind the scenes.
What really goes on? Obama knows the treachery about to take down Hillary. Obama pretends to be a friend. Hillary will be butchered. This news was leaked to the New York Times on purpose and the purpose is not to help Hillary. To the contrary, this news is ominous for Hillary because the danger to Hillary now is imminent. Obama is Brutus and Judas both. Hillary will be led to the slaughter with a smile on her face.
For Trump this season of plots, there is the possibility of survival and triumph. But the plotters do not rest.
Trump’s Son Threatened in Bid to Force Dad to Quit Campaign
Law enforcement agencies are investigating a threatening letter containing white powder that was sent to Donald Trump’s son, Eric, at his Manhattan residence that said the GOP presidential front-runner’s children are in danger if he doesn’t drop out of the race.
Sources told CBS News that the Secret Service, FBI, and New York Police Department are all involved in the investigation into the letter, which the younger Trump’s wife opened at their apartment at [——- —— ——], located at [— ———– ——-].
We removed the address and location of the Trump household which received the threat. Big Media outlets are publishing the address.
The serpentine Ted Cruz has many plots himself dug. Lyin’ Ted Cruz, the one who calls himself a “consistent conservative” and enemy of the establishment is now allied with the establishment with one sole purpose: to deny the voters in Republican primaries and caucuses the right to name their nominee for president. To that end, Lindsey Graham, a long time Cruz hater, is now allied with Ted Cruz and will raise money for Ted Cruz. Can a John McCain endorsement, another Cruz hater, be far away as the Arizona primary comes on Tuesday? Ted Cruz has sold out the little credibility he had for thirty pieces of silver.
Little Marco too is on the stop #TrumpTrain. Little Marco calls serpent Cruz “the only conservative left in the race” even though Little Marco used to agree with lion Trump that Cruz is lyin’.
More plots emerged from the fat confines of the fat cats and fat plotters who met yesterday to say #NeverTrump. The deception from them is that it is too late to mount a third party and so they will ally with the once anti-establishment, now a total shill for the establishment – Lyin’ Ted Cruz.
For this Tuesday’s primaries and caucuses, the governor of Utah will endorse Governor John Kasich, who has zero chance of winning the nomination, with the sole aim of depriving Republican voters of naming their standard bearer and plotting anything/everything to stop Trump.
What amazes is that any of these plotters wonder why they are so hated.
Paul Ryan continues to mewl and encourage a brokered convention. Mitt Romney continues to plot everywhere but especially in Utah which votes this coming Tuesday.
On the day before Super Tuesday, more than half of all the GOP-related campaign ads on TV were anti-Donald Trump ads.
The attack ads played more than 4,000 times on local broadcast stations and national cable channels, according to Kantar Media’s estimates. Just one day’s worth of saturation messaging cost the anti-Trump groups $5.9 million. [snip]
When the election results come in on Tuesday night, political pros will be looking for signs of the ad war’s success or failure. [snip]
Conservative Solutions PAC, which supports Marco Rubio, has spent $13.1 million on ads in the five states. The American Future Fund, which supports John Kasich, has spent $6.2 million.
“It’s wall-to-wall TV ads” in Ohio, Henry Gomez, the chief political reporter for the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper, said on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources.” “This morning, as I watching local news, I don’t think I saw a nonpolitical ad among them.” [snip]
The week before the March 1 primary, $7 million was spent on anti-Trump messaging. The week after, $12.8 million was spent.
An organized effort by some Republicans and conservatives to stop Donald Trump from securing the party’s nomination appears to be taking shape as different groups and former candidates are putting their weight behind other efforts.
A mix of anti-Trump campaign ads, endorsements for Sen. Ted Cruz and talk of a third party candidate are all part of the fight against what many view as inevitable. [snip]
The first to make a clear move was former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who arranged to meet with Trump’s then-rivals Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich ahead of Florida’s primary. The specifics about what was discussed during said meetings were never released, but their meetings — and Trump’s lack of one — was confirmed ahead of the Sunshine State’s vote Tuesday. [snip]
Sen. Lindsey Graham, who dropped out in December, is providing a similar show of support to Cruz. Cruz’s team confirmed today that Graham will be hosting a fundraiser for the Texas senator on Monday, though he stopped short of giving a full endorsement.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who earlier endorsed Rubio, gave a similar nod to Cruz, saying Wednesday that “my hope and my prayer” is that Cruz can “really get to where he needs to go.” [snip]
Former Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Sen. John McCain have both spoken out against Trump as well. [snip]
Blogger Erick Erickson said he participated in a meeting of “grassroots conservative activists from around the country” to discuss ways to beat Trump, who they do not view as a “real conservative candidate.” [snip]
Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., confirmed the meeting in a statement, but did not detail the discussion. [snip]
There is more to the anti-Trump effort than just closed-door meetings and endorsements.
The number of groups not affiliated with a specific candidate that have produced anti-Trump ads appears to be growing.
Today the Club for Growth released 30-second television spot in Utah, which has its primary next week, criticizing Trump’s previous support for government-run health care.
Trump’s comments about women have been the basis of an ad released earlier this week by Our Principles PAC, which is run by former Mitt Romney deputy campaign manager Katie Packer. [snip]
More than $63 million and counting has been spent on anti-Trump ads nationwide, according to an ABC News analysis of data from CMAG/Kantar Media.
Almost half of that money — $32 million – came from super PACs supporting other Republican presidential candidates. Groups that are purely anti-Trump spent $17.5 million on ads attacking the real estate mogul.
The frequency of the anti-Trump spending has also increased dramatically, with nearly nine times the amount of money that was spent in the first half of February being spent this week alone. That breaks down to $2.53 million being spent each day this week, according to the ABC News analysis of data from CMAG/Kantar Media. [snip]
Conservative radio host Glenn Beck has also spoken out against Trump, and has posted articles on his site about the prospect of a third party candidate.
The above plotters are not in support of anyone. The plotters entire intent is to deprive the voters from being the ones who decide the nominee.
The “conservative” plotters are as reprehensible as the plotters on the totalitarian left. On the left the plotters are a bit more honest than the “conservative” plotters because they at least admit their aim is to silence Trump:
The hacking collective Anonymous has vowed once again to “dismantle” Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and to “expose what he doesn’t want the public to know”. [snip]
“This is a call to arms. Shut down his websites, research and expose what he doesn’t want the public to know. We need you to dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand.” [snip]
“This is a declaration of total war. OperationTrump engaged.”
Trump has been the target of several hacking groups, allegedly leaking personal information, voicemail messages and attacking his various sites, all of which have had little effect on his popularity.
On the right and on the left the aim is to destroy Donald Trump. The message is not “use your vote to elect this candidate”. The message is “silence Donald Trump and silence the voters who continue to vote for Donald J. Trump.”
Will this totalitarian appeal to destroy Trump work? A new poll from New York measures Trump support in the state at 64% to a measly 12% for Lyin’ Ted Cruz. Trump has an even wider lead than Hillary Clinton over old socialist Bernie Sanders.
Will Trump and/or Hillary survive the plots of the season? Hillary likely won’t survive because she does not even see the knives behind the tapestries and ‘neath cloaks. Trump likely will survive because he sees the plots. Trump sees the knives.
Trump also prepares for the battle to come, against all enemies – from the authoritarian right to the totalitarian left. There is still hope, to return government to the consent of the governed, to Make America Great Again.
