Skip to comments.Is Trump a McConnell-Rove Establishment Tool?
Posted on 01/20/2016 11:32:56 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
On January 19, Donald Trump, the loudest Republican claimant to the anti-establishment label, filled out his recent attacks on Ted Cruz in a very telling way, as revealed on Mark Levin's radio program ...
We've been contacted by the establishment types. They all want to know, how do they get involved with the campaign? They're giving up on their candidate...and I mean these are real establishment people, that I've known when I was a member of the establishment -- meaning a giver, a big donor. But they are contacting us -- Corey [Trump's campaign manager], I think we can say that very honestly, they're contacting us left and right about joining the campaign, and these are serious establishment types.
Who might these "real," "serious" establishment types be? Perhaps there is a hint in this subsequent comment, a follow-up to his recent pro-establishment assault against Ted Cruz:
So when you talk about temperament, Ted has got a rough temperament, I don't know. You know, you can't call people liars on the Senate floor, when they're your leader.
This, of course, is a direct reference to Cruz's criticism of Mitch McConnell regarding the GOP establishment leader's secret deal with Barack Obama prior to a trade vote.
Donald Trump defending Mitch McConnell, you ask? The answer is yes, and the explanation may be found by examining Trump's recent history as a political donor.

Bob Dole: "I question [Cruz's] allegiance to the party,"
Bob Dole: "I don't know how [Cruz's] going to deal with Congress," he said. "Nobody likes him."
Bob Dole: "Mr. Trump could "probably work with Congress, because he's, you know, he's got the right personality and he's kind of a deal-maker."
It’s important not to forget that only a few weeks ago, Trump singularly upset the whole election apple cart!
Trump set the national agenda by opposing illegal immigration and bringing up other issues that the GOPe and their allies desperately wanted to avoid, and now they can’t.
The GOPe was not prepared for this, and as a consequence they don’t have a clue about what to do, hence their almost universal collapse into a pile of quivering jello, flip-flopping like a bag of Mexican jumping beans dumped on a hot griddle.
Trump has exposed those who pretend to be conservative but are really just fronts for big money establishment campaign donors who purchase their candidates with campaign “donations”.
Trump, by actually being a real man, has exposed the other candidates (Cruz excepting of course) and their allies for the weak little sniveling sellouts that they really are.
Trump’s vociferous truth-telling and fearless neutering of the kommie media have been the catalyst that triggered a massive revolt amongst conservative voters who are infuriated at the GOPe Congress doing absolutely ZERO to stop Obama’s agenda, and suddenly the GOP RINO leadership is in full blown panic mode and in full blown retreat, and the SMALL conservative House contingent smelt blood in the water, took heart, and charged in against a weakened, frightened and paralyzed GOPe leadership, and Boehner was taken out as a sacrificial lamb.
Trump is absolutely correct when he says that without Trump in the race, everything would be same-ol’, same-ol. The Joyful Tippy-Toes Turtle would be creeping closer to the finish line, Boehner would still be safely ensconced as Speaker, and there would be no mention of illegal immigration are any of the issues surrounding it by any politician in either party, other than possibly how critical it would be to pass immigration “reform”.
The media are loath to make the connection, but it’s obvious that the Boehner resignation was yet another falling domino, toppling due to the Trump Effect, because Trump’s unabashed truth-telling and fearless neutering of the kommie media triggered a revolt amongst the great unwashed GOP masses which emboldened a few conservative Congress critters to grow a few pairs.
And we wouldn’t even be having ANY of these conversations about illegal immigration and the myriad of other Obammunist issues destroying our country if it wasn’t for Trump. Instead, we’d simply be debating which RINO, GOPe squish would be least likely to be stomped by Hillary, and the GOPe would once again be exhorting the “base” about how critical it is for us to once again vote for the “lesser of two evils”, that is, vote for the GOPe side of the Uniparty coin.
And do note that ALL of the oligarchs and plutocrats are frightened to death of Donald Trump because the billionaires and millionaires can’t buy him like all of the other politicians they routinely purchase, because Trump doesn’t need nor want their money, and the kommie media is frightened to death of him because he isn’t afraid of them either, the bottom line being that Donald Trump can not be controlled by the rich and powerful or the corrupt media, so for anyone who is truly for campaign finance reform and wants to take money out of politics, voting for Trump is the only reasonable choice.
President Trump is really the last hope for this country: if he can’t undo any of the damage wrought by the Obammunists, the U.S.A. is done.
So least we forget, the above, and much more, are called “The Trump Effect”.
He put himself in the spotlight, not immigration.
Nov 2015: Bob Dole endorses Jeb Bush
"...Jeb has the proven leadership skills and executive experience needed to fix the problems facing our country - from the anemic economy to America's weakened standing among world leaders," Dole said in a statement. "Jeb's conservative reform agenda and forward looking vision on issues including 4 percent economic growth, defeating ISIS and taking care of our veterans are in stark contrast to Hillary Clinton's strategy to continue the failed policies of the present Administration."
"I will do all I can to be helpful to Jeb's campaign," Dole promised...."
No, he is just recognized by them as being the inevitable winner and they think they can work with him better than Creepy Cruz.... who they hate...like pretty much everybody else in America...but not in Canada...because that’s where he was born....naturally.
"Movement conservatives and self-styled Republican populists have long been joined in conflict with the party establishment, but the GOP presidential race has set them on a collision course.
Friction between these two GOP factions is being fueled by the increasingly bitter battle between Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and New York celebrity businessman Donald Trump in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Cruz represents ideologically committed conservatives, although he has appealed with some success to populist voters. Trump has given big government populists, who have aligned with the GOP mostly for cultural reasons, a champion, while appealing to some movement conservatives." .....
Jeb: The Only Chance Hillary Becomes President Is If We Nominate Trump
CW. Just keep throwing more s#â¬t at the wall to see if it sticks. Cruz must really be worried needing fools to post crap.
Avert your eyes.
.... I mean these are real establishment people, that I’ve known when I was a member of the establishment — meaning a giver, a big donor. But they are contacting us — Corey [Trump’s campaign manager], I think we can say...
AND TRUMP SAYS HE CAN’T BE BOUGHT, YEAH RIGHT LMAO.
Trump’s very publically been bought by Big Government GREEN ethanol subsidies.
Well, not to worry! If the YUGH crowds that are turning out to see Donald Trump actually start going to caucuses and the polls to vote for him, then you will have a pretty good idea of whether Hillary has a chance. This will be especially true in the cross-over States with open primaries. A large cross-over vote for Trump will probably mean the Bernie will win on the Democrat side.
We know you hate Trump. But lying about what we all witnessed just makes you look desperate.
I think they prefer Trump because he no idea about separation of powers, an appreciation for states’ rights, etc.
It wouldn’t occur to him that an existing, let alone proposed program, is no business of the Federal Government.
Cruz’s campaign, once again, called here 3 times this evening. It was their money grubbing number, as opposed to their “survey” number.
Actually, they have another number, too, which is a push Poll number. I need to upgrade my landline phone to one that can block up to 200 numbers.
3 times, huh?
Outstanding reply!!! You nailed it! Every Freeper should read this!
Again outstanding reply!
I don’t hate Trump.I’m just just not going to pretend a media fairy tale us true. And I will defend my country from the left, no matter how much they lie.
What did you witness? A bunch of mainstream media lies? Sorry, I’m not that gullible.
