Trump is rising in the polls, and the establishment is doing everything they can to try and fight it. After briefly entertaining the idea of a third party run, the Republican establishment has realized that a brokered convention will be the only way to stop Trump.
The establishment isn’t even trying to hide the fact that the system is rigged.
During an interview with CNBC, GOP official Curly Haugland stated that we’re likely to head into a brokered convention, and that “the media has created the perception that the voters choose the nomination. That’s the conflict here.” When asked why we even bother holding primaries, we replied “that’s a good question.”
You can’t make this stuff up (watch below).
So how are they going to take the nomination from Trump at a brokered convention? Trump may garner the 1,237 delegates needed for the nomination and still have the establishment try to steal it from him. Political analyst Roger Stone explained how this would happen in an interview with Breitbart:
“In a number of states, the Republican chairman is essentially placing non-Trump people into Trump delegate slots,” Stone. “Under the party rules, anyone can register to be a delegate. You don’t have to really be ‘a Trump supporter.’ While those delegates would be bound by the results of primaries or caucuses to vote for Trump on the first ballot, they are not bound on procedural matters like the rules.”
“So, the idea is to have a majority against Trump prior to the first ballot, which you could essentially lay the groundwork for the big steal, by passing as they did to Ron Paul three years ago, rules that are detrimental to Trump, or by unseating Trump delegates,” he said. “The rules committee could theoretically say, states that allowed Democrats and independents to vote without changing their registration to Republican — those delegates would be disallowed.”
Stone declared the GOP convention will be an all-out brawl between party insiders and Trump supporters.
“I think it’s going to be a barn burner. I used to think that if Trump got to 1,237 [delegates] that would be the ball game,” Stone said. “By the way, I think that’s still possible, but not definite. He’s got to get 57 percent of the 1,009 delegates still available going forward, of which 217 are in winner-take-all states.”
The Democrats picked Hillary as their candidate, granting her a majority of the superdelegates to buffer her from Sanders. The Republicans are openly trying to prevent the nominee that Republican voters are choosing (aren’t we the ones against voter fraud?). Neither side is even trying to hide the fact that they don’t represent the American people anymore.
