It’s no secret that many in the GOP establishment don’t want constitutional conservative Ted Cruz or reality TV actor Donald Trump to be the GOP nominee for the presidency. There has been talk of the Party attempting to slip in a new candidate if neither of the current candidates reaches the magic number of 1,237 needed to secure the nomination outright.
Ohio Governor John Kasich, who has pushed the notion that Jesus Christ would support government taking over one-sixth of the economy while forcibly making Americans buy into Obamacare, believes that he stands a chance at being the nominee in a contested convention. He believes he could win over support despite so far winning only his home state of Ohio. But, according to POLITICO, although RINO insiders believe the nominee will be someone other than Trump or Cruz, it will definitely not be Kasich.
One person, who spoke with POLITICO anonymously, said that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has a 54-percent chance of being the Republican nominee. This unnamed person reportedly has “an enviable prediction record” and said that Ryan is “the most conservative, least establishment member of the establishment.”
Although Paul Ryan denies that he is interested in being the GOP nominee for the presidency, those are, according to another source, simply calculated words in the same vein as when he claimed he didn’t want to be Speaker, though he really did and jockeyed for the position.
A friend close to Ryan, again unnamed, spoke about a speech that Paul Ryan gave last month in which he said the tone and tenor in politics needs to be raised.
“That was somebody who was laying out the speech that, in most cases, you’d give six months before you announce you’re going to run — when you’re going around the country, raising money for your leadership PAC.”
Donald Trump’s long-time henchman Roger Stone recently announced that he and “Trump nation” is organizing #DaysOfRage protests at the Republican convention, which will be held in July in Cleveland. Stone’s choice of language for these protests is interesting since unapologetic domestic terrorist and friend of Obama’s Bill Ayers staged protests named Days of Rage” in the 1960s as part of his “War on Amerikkka.”
Stone said the Trump campaign has been made aware of the plan, which uses language which encourages violence. The plan is to target the hotels occupied by delegates for “protests.”
The Trump campaign has been demanding that he be named the nominee even if he doesn’t get to 1,237 delegates. Trump believes he should receive the nomination if he has a plurality of the vote, even if he doesn’t reach the majority.
Stone no doubt is also trying to intimidate delegates most of whom are only bound to vote for the winner in their state for the first or second round of voting.
