Contra Big Media, the chances for a Donald J. Trump victory continue to grow. Two stories this week demonstrate once again the armor plates added to the powerhouse #TrumpTrain.
Consider the $400 million ransom paid to Iran by Barack Obama. No one that we heard or read, fully grasps the meaning of this corruption and its impact on the 2016 elections. We heard the superficial, easy, pedestrian, analysis that describes what happened and how bad this all is. Yes, it is bad, yes it is corrupt, yes it is treacherous, yes it is bad precedent, yes it is money for terror, yes it funds more terror, yes it encourages more ransom hostage taking, yes it is ransom to a terrorist state. But it is more than all that and it impacts 2016 immeasurably.
Ask, what is the singular feature of the Iran $400 ransom story? The answer is: how few are surprised.
In years past an American president paying a terror state like Iran $400 million would have shocked the senses. Ronald Reagan was almost impeached for his dubious dealings with Iran. Jimmy Carter disgusted the American people with his fecklessness on Iran. Barack Obama? Obama’s $400 million paid ransom and lies and treacheries garner the usual outrage from the usual quarters, Big Media protection, and applause from the Obama Third Term candidate and associated criminal elements.
This tells us the nature of the 2016 presidential election. Americans overall ho-hum and yawn at the $400 million Iran ransom story because most Americans understand and deep down feel that the system is rigged and corruption and lies are the order of the day. In short, Donald J. Trump’s message. Voters understand more “outrage” is useless and they will husband their rage for the ballot box.
That’s the big picture. That’s the jigsaw puzzle. The individual pieces will fit or not fit, momentarily, but eventually you pick up the pieces which previously did not fit and they fall right into place.
The GOP establishment takes the opportunity presented by the Obama $400 million to attack Donald J. Trump and demand Trump bow to their demands. The GOP establishment wants Trump to run the usual campaigns run by the GOP establishment that have led to repeated failure. Once again, the GOP establishment has attacked Donald J. Trump with more viciousness than they ever attacked Barack Obama and the left wing kooks.
Aided by Big Media, the Obama Third Term, and the rabid kook left, the GOP establishment attacks Donald J. Trump. So Donald Trump, whether by sheer intelligence or forced circumstances, follows our advice, again.
This was our advice to Donald J. Trump the day after the Republican convention ended and why we think what he is doing is so smart and so magnificent:
What are the first tasks for Trump supporters? We think the smart Trump supporters and those happy with the New Republican Party have to fight alongside Donald J. Trump in every state as well as do one other really important task: Dump Paul Ryan. The time is now. Dubious polls look good for Dump Paul Ryan voters. But win or lose, the time is now to shave Paul Ryan from the House of Representatives.
A President Trump does not need a Speaker Ryan. President Trump needs a leader in the House, not a mouse. Dump Ryan.
The strength of the Trump revolution is what kept Mullah Ryan in check. Did anyone notice that when the roll call of states for the nomination began the RNC and the Trump loyalists kept Paul Ryan off the stage? When Paul Ryan finally was allowed back on stage it was only because RNC Chairman Reince Priebus was there too, making sure Paul Ryan could not gum up the works.
Mullah Ryan must go. The Trump convention went well because Mullah Ryan was kept in check.
Mullah Ryan was kept in a cage at the convention. Donald Trump’s convention allowed Donald J. Trump to be the star. Donald J. Trump was the star and he shone brightly.
Well before the Republican convention we advised Donald J. Trump to hold his fire but that war between Trump and the GOP establishment Paul Ryan must happen:
As we wrote so presciently three days ago, the next big fight will be Donald Trump versus Paul Ryan and the GOP revanchist establishment. It would help Trump2016 if a big name Trump supporter, joined by every Trump supporter, donated money to Paul Ryan’s primary opponent Paul Nehlen – that would send the necessary message to Paul Ryan and his ambitions to run for president in 2020 by sabotaging Trump in 2016. Of course, Paul Ryan’s treachery is proof of the truth of Trump’s message and helps Trump2016. Ditto Hilllary2016’s latest attack ad.
The GOP establishment will be smashed by Donald J. Trump. The war is inevitable. Trump sees it. Trump supporters, and many advisers are in Wisconsin doing their best to defeat Lyin’ Paul Ryan:
JANESVILLE, Wis. — With the relationship between Paul Ryan and Donald Trump already increasingly fraught, POLITICO has learned that a group of former Trump campaign hands is quietly working to defeat the House speaker in his primary election next week.
More than half a dozen of Trump’s former campaign staff members or leading volunteer organizers from around the country — and many more local volunteers — have signed on to the long-shot campaign of Ryan’s primary challenger, businessman Paul Nehlen, who openly embraces Trump and casts Ryan as an impediment to Trump’s agenda.
This is so smart. We think it is very smart. The GOP establishment hates this. But it is smart. Our analysis tries always to be predictive. Our analysis generally makes a case for a position and what the candidate should do. If the candidate does as we suggest we believe the candidate is on the correct path. If the candidate fails to follow our suggestion we can surmise the candidate is off the track. It’s like someone that goes into the woods and follows signposts leading them out of the woods. A kerchief tied to a tree limb here, a sock left on another limb further down the path, rocks shaped into an arrow laid down on the ground indicating the direction to follow….
The GOP establishment also has a campaign road through the woods. The problem is that the GOP establishment model is a well worn path that leads always to defeat. That Donald J. Trump refuses to take the well worn path to defeat laid out by the GOP establishment (for their own profit) angers them further. Donald J. Trump is on the road to victory however.
Trump has plenty of time to focus on the economy. Trump is still tops in all polls when it comes to who is the best leader on the economy. The economy comes next. But first Lyin’ Paul Ryan and the GOP establishment must be tackled. Which is why the GOP establishment is so furious with Trump and in league with Big Media to attack Trump.
Donald J. Trump understands his most dangerous enemies are the GOP establishment and Big Media. Trump understands he can’t fully attack Lyin’ Paul Ryan because in “nice” Wisconsin that might help Lyin’ Paul Ryan. But Trump can send signals.
Trump’s repetition of Lyin’ Paul Ryan’s “I’m not there yet” non endorsement of Trump was a masterstroke. Trump’s very public “thank you” to Paul Nehlen, Lyin’ Paul Ryan’s primary opponent was another sly slap. This Friday, Trump will campaign in Wisconsin, near the Lyin’ Paul Ryan v. Paul Nehlen district which will vote four days later. We will not be surprised if Trump invites all the candidates to his rally and the only one that shows up is Paul Nehlen – thereby sending yet another signal to Trump voters in the district.
It’s canny stuff Trump is up to. The Pence endorsement of Lyin’ Paul Ryan underscores the cleverness and Mike Pence helps keep the GOP establishment off balance.
The GOP establishment is worried about the primary election next week. A Paul Ryan defeat or even slim victory would be a major tearing down of the GOP establishment. Eric Cantor lost his election a few years back to David Brat and thereby destroyed many GOP establishment and political establishment schemes. A Paul Ryan defeat or slim victory would be a massive club on the head of all GOP establishment candidates this election. Want to “unite” the Republican Party for the November elections? Defeat Paul Ryan this coming Tuesday in Wisconsin and the GOP establishment candidates will fall in line or face certain defeat. Defeat or weakening of Lyin’ Paul Ryan is task #1. Trump understands this because Trump understands the battlefield and “kill the leaders” warfare strategy.
The defeat of Lyin’ Paul Ryan won’t be an easy task. Maybe. This past Tuesday’s election in Kansas was supposed to be an easy win, according to the polls, for a Ted Cruz type Trump hating Republican congressman. Instead the Trump hater lost big and the Trump supporter won big. Not that the Kansas election can be easily categorized however. That election featured lots of money for the challenger and the GOP establishment as well as Trump supporters found themselves on the same side. Still, the lesson is about the polls.
The big news from the Kansas election was that the polls were so completely off. It’s a feature of many elections these past years. The polls say one thing. The voters say another. That’s because voters who do not want to be called nasty names do what is smart and avoid the fray altogether. Then, these very same voters go to the ballot box and vote to “throw the bums out”.
The voters know the system is rigged. The voters know the Iran $400 million ransom and the Iran nuclear deal are corruption and treachery by Obama, the Obama Third Term candidate, as well as anyone that gives aid and comfort to Barack Obama. The voters know all this. That’s why they lie to the pollsters. That’s why they vote for Trump. The voters will lie to the pollsters, fill the cup of rage full, then explode into the ballot boxes on election day. The voters will be avenged.
Trump is the Avenger come to avenge.
