I think this is a HUGE mistake by the GOP. This will most likely disrupt the GOP Convention, the likes we've never seen!

Look, I've made it clear in many posts I am no fan of Donald Trump. I and everyone else have the right to voice their personal opinions about a candidate. It's another thing altogether for the Republican establishment to pull the rug out from under Trump who received the majority of support from voters. It doesn't matter if you consider Trump a jerk. The public's voice is being blatantly ignored! This flies in the face of free elections and anyone who would support this should go and live in a country where elections are fixed. This is exactly what the conservative party is trying to do!

The American people should be outraged at this rigged political system. It's not just the Republican Party, the Democrats are just as guilty for manipulating delegates.



Dozens of Republican convention delegates are hatching a new plan to block Donald Trump at this summer’s party meetings, in what has become the most organized effort so far to stop the businessman from becoming the GOP nominee.

The moves come amid declining poll numbers for Trump and growing concerns among Republicans that Trump is squandering his chance to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton. Several controversies — including his racial attacks on a federal judge, renewing his call to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States and support for changing the nation’s gun laws — have raised concerns among Republicans that Trump is not really a conservative and is too reckless to run a successful race.

Given the strife, a growing group of anti-Trump delegates are convinced that enough like-minded Republicans will band together in the next month to change party rules and allow delegates to vote for whomever they want, regardless of who won state caucuses and primaries.

The new push is being run by the only people who can actually make changes to party rules, rather than by pundits and media figures who have been pining for a Trump alternative. Many of the delegates involved supported Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas in the primary but say they are not taking cues from any of Trump’s vanquished opponents.

“This literally is an ‘Anybody but Trump’ movement,” said Kendal Unruh, a Republican delegate from Colorado who is leading the campaign. “Nobody has any idea who is going to step in and be the nominee, but we’re not worried about that. We’re just doing that job to make sure that he’s not the face of our party.”

Even after they piss off their voters and create total chaos they still don't have any one else to run. The voters already told them they don't want the garbage they are trying to push on to them.

These Establishment parties just don't get it...they are done.

Looks like Lindsay Graham has come back from the Bilderberg group with new standing orders to throw the election.

Agree totally.


The irony of it is if Trump survives it, the left, on and on-yes even himself- can anyone argue he isn't a 'winner'?

Same thing the DNC is doing to Sanders..

Looks like they want us to have larger protest.

That's the nicest thing I can say without getting in trouble from the gods.

Come November, Republicans will be sorry that they fell for Trump's BS instead of backing Cruz.

Very sorry.

This is probably the mildest of lengths they will go to to prevent a Trump presidency.

He's got to be a pretty paranoid person right about now.

Plus I agree with all who already said they have no one else who has a prayer of winning.

Ironic, the articles from the Washington Post.

Are you serious that Graham really went to that meeting or are you joking?

The GOP lost the plot when the let religion rule their cause. Gives a real Republican conservatives a bad name.

Yep, nothing is more important than futile attempts to rehash the gay marriage debate and talk about how amazing Israel is for 4 years.

I have to agree, that was also surprising.

If they nominate Bush after the public rejected him overwhelmingly, it could start mass protests! Not to say a rejection of Trump will not do the same thing.

both parties are trying to put the candidate forward that can win a general election. I love bernie, but he made a huge mistake embracing the socialist label over progressive.

the gop is panicking because it looks like trump is trying to lose
the dems just wanted hillary all along

Trump strong armed and hijacked the GOP and they resent it. What did you expect; the neocons simply aren't willing to give up control of the corporate, military, banking oligarchy. Taking on those hombres is just all kinds of stupid. Donald could have compromised just a little but his yuggge ego just wouldn't let him.

Trump should have run 3rd party from the git go but Corey had other ideas. Now it has blown up in their faces and the whole campaign staff is in disarray.
