"Billionaires, tech CEOs and top members of the Republican establishment flew to a private island resort off the coast of Georgia this weekend for the American Enterprise Institute's annual World Forum, according to sources familiar with the secretive gathering.
The main topic at the closed-to-the-press confab? How to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump.
Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, Napster creator and Facebook investor Sean Parker, and Tesla Motors and SpaceX honcho Elon Musk all attended. So did Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), political guru Karl Rove, House Speaker Paul Ryan, GOP Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), Tim Scott (S.C.), Rob Portman (Ohio) and Ben Sasse (Neb.), who recently made news by saying he "cannot support Donald Trump."

Tom Cotton? If true a major disappointment.
I want Trump as President, but seeing Karl Rove’s good thing come to an end will be a very delicious by-product of a Trump victory.
Thank you, GR.
Do they even realize that actual people are voting?
A pox on all their houses!
This is just wrong and immoral and NOT the American way. How can one NOT vote for Trump? Just to thwart the machine.
Straight out of ‘House of Cards’.
They know Hillary will dispatch Cruz in November so from the Uniparty’s point of view, they kill two birds with one stone.
Sure, they’re evil but they’re not stupid. They’ve figured out how to preserve their power and perks.
You may be joking but we don’t really know what Trump would do. He doesn’t handle people he thinks dissed him well at all.
Only the next day (if he were to get elected).
And if he loses, the RINOs will have established a legal precedent that any foreign a(!)hole can run for the office.
Considering these people probably own the company(ies) that manufacture the voting machines, that might be a dubious assumption (actual people voting).
This power structure in Washington DC sure does not want an outsider like Trump to crash their party.
I sometimes think that outside an all-out civil war against our government establishment, Trump is about the only person that can go in and help clean up that mess.
I have no doubt this is what the power structure in DC fears the most about the potential of an outsider coming in as president.
Is this not RICO?
It's going to get uglier here shortly.
I'm sure it's a full court press to make sure Trump loses Michigan tomorrow.
We can expect social mediaists to start publishing false propaganda and outright lies because they can't win if they publish the truth.
Apparently the only way to eject these entrenched traitors, is to replace them with Democrats. They can’t seem to be beaten with other Republicans. We are so done.
Can you imaging the lavish hotel, meals and libations they had over the weekend and none of them, NONE of them had to pay any of their own money to stay there or enjoy the first class accommodations. And they sat there for days bashing Trump while not paying a dime of their own money. All they care about is their own bank account, power and how they can help their own circle of friends/family make a lot of money by way of politics. Very selfish and self indulgent.
Just disgusting that they fell so threatened by a popular private citizen who decided to run for the Presidency. Trump does not need this. He gets it from all sides unfortunately.
Guaranteed he did not think he Republicans would turn on him and declare they would vote for Hillary when they were so ADAMANT that he sign the pledge right from the beginning. Total hypocrites.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
We have met the enemy....
So how do we stop these guys and voter fraud too?
Thanks for listing the name of the despicable Oligarchs
Note the politicians we sent to DC, to represent the common folk, who now sit in this meeting with the elites, conspiring on how to stop the one man who will disrupt their *apple* cart. Politicians who’ve no doubt acquired wealth, not from business they’ve risked starting, but from the sweat off of our backs...our tax dollars...turned into lobbyist/special interest, govt trough payback $$.
If this doesn’t wake the folks here....and across the country....up, then kiss the country goodbye.
Phyllis Schlafly tried to issue a dire warning....that Trump is the country’s last hope.
Mock Trump at your own peril.
The Oligarch’s thank you.
