A desperate establishment only fuels the Trump Train with their feeble attempts to derail it

So, the has-been Mitt Romney gave a press conference to try to tell us republicans why we shouldn’t vote for Donald Trump. The man who handed Obama his second term because he was too much of a wimp to give him the knock-out blow when he had him stumbling is going to tell us why we shouldn’t vote for Trump. A typical establishment republican move was to ignore Benghazi and give Obama a free pass just a week before the election. Romney had him and he let him go, why? And this is the man we should trust to tell us not to vote for the anti-establishment candidate?

Before I go on... Remember this Romney praise of Trump in February of 2012 after his endorsement. What a joke Romney is.



I’ve been a life-long republican. There were times in my life where I completely disagreed with the republican candidate in a race, for example, the Wisconsin governor race some years back when Scott McCallum was running against Jim Doyle. I couldn’t stand McCallum because of his stance against Indian casinos, but yet, I remained party faithful and voted for him anyways. Never again!

The way the establishment republicans have aligned against Trump has been wicked and it’s only because they can’t control him. He’s not your typical politician and he won’t bend over for them. He won’t be bought by the same people buying the rest of these politicians. Trump is actually a breath of fresh air. I’m tired of the same old politicians who make the same old promises election after election and yet, nothing ever changes and it doesn’t matter anymore if it’s a republican or a democrat we choose, neither one represents us common folks. They represent the corporate elitists who paid to get them in their offices.

I had some respect for Marco Rubio but all that is out the window as soon as he started calling Trump a con-artist. The real con-artist is Marco Rubio with his fake smiles and his immature rants about how he will stay in the race as long as it takes to stop Trump. In his TV interviews following his big loss on Super Tuesday, his youthful age shined brightly, and proved this man is nowhere near qualified to be the president of the United States. He needs to grow up some first.

This week’s attacks on Trump by the usual suspects like Lindsey Graham and Mitt Romney have made it easy for both, my wife and I, to abandon the republican party now and declare ourselves independents. We will stick with Trump no matter what happens.

I believe the leaders of my former party, the Republicans, are way out of touch with everyday Americans. They have no idea the real-life issues that we everyday Americans deal with in our personal lives, in our social lives, in our workplace lives or financial lives. They’ve clearly shown that their true interests lie in what’s best for them and theirs. Trump, on the other hand, relates to how we truly feel and where we feel our country has gone and where it’s heading.

If they had any real concern for everyday Americans, they would be trying to figure out what drives the Trump freight train, rather than making desperate, embarrassing attempts to derail it. The more they poke at the movement that is Trump, the more determined I am to commit to it.

In conclusion, I’d like to point out the silly claim that Trump can’t beat Hillary. This is a lame and completely false claim and simply a way to try to fool republicans into believing they have to switch over to one of the other candidates. Where do the establishment republicans think much of Trump’s support is coming from? In all the primary elections so far republican voting numbers are way up while democrats are way down. Democrats are obviously not happy with their two choices and there is a mass migration to the Trump freight train. There’s no energy in the democratic party while Trump has everyone fired up for real change.

This energy will carry over to the general election where minorities in large numbers will get behind Trump. He’ll gain much of the independent vote and yes, republicans will get behind him, because their alternative will be Hillary Clinton. They'll whine and cry about it now and threaten to split the party, but in the end, they'll do the right thing and back him. I think it’s the exact opposite with Ted Cruz. His support will remain mostly far right republicans. He doesn’t have crossover appeal like Trump does.

To the republican leadership: Keep up the desperate attacks because all you are doing is firming up my support for Trump, and the rest of his followers as well. Not only are you firming up our support, but you’re helping many of those voters who were undecided to choose Trump, because the biggest question remains… what are you so afraid of? And that’s what many Americans are asking themselves. Trump has you afraid, and for us little people, that means maybe there is hope for real change… finally!

For me it's gone all WWE wrestling.

Romney has now formed a rivalry with Trump, is he going to jump in the ring just as Trump is about to be crowned? Wrap a steel chair around his head just prior to putting him through some hold, until he submits.

Crazy times in the good ol' USA!! Yee haa!!

Yes, it does make great entertainment... if only so much wasn't at stake.

Yes it was unnecessary on the part of Romney, only an Eejit would vote for such a loose cannon as Trump, and the ensuing dictatorship.
I think I'll join the rest of the crews who are already penning books about Obama...the last President of the USA.

You know it's getting bad when the pull old David "Grand Wizard" Duke out of the closet. They'll throw the kitchen sink at Trump, and it will be interesting to see how far they will go with this. Romney's speech oozes desperation it's so incredibly bad. Will they resort to death threats like
they did with Perot?

Trump won't be so easily brushed aside like Paul was in 2012. This is going to get really good, as I put nothing past the establishment at this point. I've never seen the elite so desperately afraid before, which is a huge red flag. You have to ask yourself why? After all if Trump gets too far out of line he's impeachable, so what's everyone so damn afraid of? We're so far in debt we don't have much to loose anymore.

The loss of control.

The establishment hasn't had a challenge like this. It is awesome to see, all this entertainment and we'll probably get a great president out of it all.

You're right though, they are very desperate and everything they throw at him fails. So, what will they resort to in a month or two when he's running away with this thing?

What happens when you tell someone not do to X ? - They do X.

Reversed psychology is heavily used in the media (at least in my opinion) and we know for a fact that 6 corporations control 90% of the media.

Probably the best example, gun control. Someone goes rouge, Obama does his usual thing and the next day sales are going crazy.


Now we have Mitt Romney, which lost the race to Obama, telling people not to vote for Trump. So how is American 'Republican' Joe going to take this?

Will Joe be thinking,

a) "Well, Romney has a point there. Maybe I should rethink my take on this." or

b) "Heeeell no! It is your fault that **** is in the White House. Who are you to tell me who I should vote for?"


Easy answer isn't it?

I've been for Trump since June 15, last year, so the reverse psychology doesn't work for me. But, yea, I do see your point, but somehow, i don't believe that's what is happening here. The establishment is truly afraid.

The establishment that is the military/industrial/banking/NSA/CIA corporate oligarchy is afraid of Trump?

On the outside chance that Trump gets the nomination and elected; he will be the establishments bitch and bend over and do exactly what they tell him to. Just like Obama did....

They are the neocon real power that doesn't need all the swaggering adolescent tough guy BS that Trump likes. They are the power behind the curtain. To them Trump is just a clown. They are totally beyond political theater so many find entertaining.

This isn't Mayberry RFD anymore!

I actually think we should get rid of both these parties. They are disfunctional. If they let people like Trump and Clinton run, we need to get rid of them. The rest of the world is watching this Soap opera. They must think the American people are desperate or something.

If I have to I will vote for Trump. I will vote for Bernie if he gets the Democratic nomination but not Clinton.

Wouldn't it be nice if hardly anyone went and voted this fall. President of the USA voted in with only two thousand votes from the regular people. They won't even get the hint, the winner will be celebrating.

Every time I see Mitt Romney, I imagine Bruce campbell from the evil dead....


I would really love to see someone do a video for Ash VS the Evil dead but sub in Romney's head over Ash, and use his campaign vids for source audio.

A thought of mine I wanted to share.

You guys remember how the MSM treated Ron Paul? They didn't. Neither good press or bad press - media blackout.
Why? Because unlike Donald Trump, Ron Paul was an actual thread to the establishment.

"There is no such thing as bad press."

You know how many people I have heard say this same thing. A lot of democrats I know are saying they will go Trump if Bernie doesn't win, or they will write him in and throw away their vote, or just stay home. I don't know where all this Hillary support comes from, I still haven't met anyone who supports her.

If you think Obama was an anti-establishment candidate, you aren't thinking clearly. There is a huge difference between Trump and Obama. Trump is a loose cannon, Obama was "selected" by the establishment.

Anybody with investments in companies that have significant foreign labor benefits, as well as tax benefits from keeping their business either in whole or part on foreign soil is who's afraid of a Trump Presidency, me thinks. If every President in the past had a Trump-like attitude towards profitable business with the American labor force first in mind- Trump wouldn't need to make America great again. It would have kept just getting better, and there still would be the American dream, instead of the Amerikan nightmare. I am not fond of his endless arrogance, but damn, no one can argue he does have the bragging rights. But more importantly, he understands the root causes of the nightmare. And arrogance or not, no one else is talking about making America great again. That's because they really don't care- when they have everything THEY need.


Btw, very good thread Rez, S&F.
