RNC Lays Groundwork for Nominee Who May Not Be Trump

April 2, 2016

After months of tense dealings with Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, the Republican National Committee’s biggest challenge is beginning to take shape: how to navigate a scenario in which Trump leads his challengers in votes and delegates heading into the convention, but loses the nomination.

On Thursday in Washington, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus met with Trump and his inner circle, with the billionaire and his aides inquiring about delegate rules and protocol. Trump is poised to head to the party’s July convention just short of the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the nomination. His leading rival, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, is already stoking the flames of a “Stop Trump” movement, and organizing an elaborate operation to win every delegate at the Cleveland convention.

Trump has been adamant that the candidate with the most votes and delegates—even if that candidate misses the majority threshold—should be the party’s nominee. In an MSNBC town hall on Wednesday, he described the process as “unfair.”

“I have millions of more votes—that’s my leverage,” Trump said.

    Trump has all the “RIGHT” enemies to make be a solid supporter!

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    Congress is complicit in protecting Obama and his treasonous agenda.

    The U.S. government is mostly run by just five people: Barack Obama, Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid, Paul Ryan, and Nancy Pelosi.

    Last December, these five pushed through a horrible Omnibus spending bill to fund the government through next September that amounts to a betrayal of American voters, especially on immigration matters.


    Where do I begin to condemn this? I’ll start with GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan.

    It didn’t take long for Ryan to break all his promises on immigration, did it?

    When he was running for Speaker two months ago, Ryan promised he would not bring up immigration bills that did not have the backing of a majority of Republican House Members.

    Yet as soon as he got the chance, Ryan snuck several huge immigration giveaways into the Omnibus spending bill Congress approved.

    It goes further:

    »Nearly QUADRUPLES the number of H-2B low-skilled foreign workers allowed in this year. This could raise the total of these workers this year from 66,000 to 264,000.

    Not only that…

    »FUNDS a large increase in Syrian and other refugee resettlement in this country. Instead of a timeout and a full security review, Congress handed Obama everything he wants.

    »FUNDS Obama’s catch-and-release policy that virtually stops deportations.

    »FUNDS Sanctuary Cities, so that cities like San Francisco that refuse to turn over jailed illegal aliens to the feds will face no cut in funding.

    »MAINTAINS tax credits to illegal aliens in the form of the Earned Income Tax Credit. That is, if a family is poor enough, they not only pay no income tax, the government pays THEM. Yes, that includes illegal aliens! Also, Congress continues to allow illegal aliens to claim child tax credits on their tax returns.

    »FUNDS the continued relocation into America of the unaccompanied minors who are marching across the border into Texas and states. The numbers of these crossing the border is way up again this year.

    Even with all these outrages I’ve mentioned, there are still MORE terrible things hidden in the Omnibus bill, which passed both the House and the Senate. A hopeful sign is that 95 House Republicans joined with 18 House Democrats, and 26 Senate Republicans joined with 6 Senate Democrats to vote NO on this monstrosity.

    Yet, most Republicans and most all the Democrats voted yes, and it passed. Their complicity in this sell out is the real threat to the Constitution and Americans that want jobs and security.

    ………..Trump/Carson 2016

    Mitch McConnel, John Boehner, Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor and have championed Obama’s treasonous agenda for almost a decade!

    Before the November 2014 election, Republican’s made us, their base, sweet sounding promises! Then they lied, betrayed and back stabbed their supporters after the election.

    The November 2014 election was ..NOT, approval for Republican to recently pass the Omnibus Spending Bill and F#%k over all Americans opposed to funding illegal aliens and muslim refugee resettlement.

    The November 2014 election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to pass TPP and F#%k over American workers.

    The November election was a verdict ..AGAINST, Obama’s treasonous illegal alien amnesty plans ….by ….the …..American ….voters!

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to pass a funding bill that pays for Obama’s illegal executive action granting legal status to illegal aliens.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to do the same thing as disclosed in Gang Of Eight Senate Bill 744 and recently passed CRONYbus HR83.

    The last election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to NOT round up and deport ALL illegal aliens in the USA.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to increase H-1b visas as disclosed in Gang Of Eight Senate Bill 744.

    The election was …NOT, approval for Republican plans to NOT cancel the H-1b visa program and NOT deport ALL the foreigners here now taking American jobs.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican actions to gut EPA regulations and pollute with abandon.

    The November 2014 election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republicans to allow corporations to avoid paying US taxes through tax inversion schemes.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for ALL Republicans to allow US Banks to once again allow “Derivatives provision” and CITIBANK language repealing part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law putting American taxpayers on the hook, …again, for their losses as recently passed in CRONYbus HR83.

    Remember, American Patriots STILL, vote in far greater numbers than Illegal Aliens and Billionaire PAC’$ …and they will vote for TRUMP!

    Oh, and speaking of …establishment republicans and illegal aliens. I was glad to see that Eric Cantor was up and around last fall tearfully pImping John Boehner’s career. Last I heard, he had his head over a toilet for 6 months after his loss.

    We all know the Democrats are in the traitors bag so you all may ask….WHY hasn’t the GOP done anything to STOP Obama’s treasonous illegal alien, muslim resettlement and gun control policies?

    Well, ……….The RNC committee did act……sort of.

    ….Sorta raises serious questions about WHICH party they really belong to!


    At the opening of the January Republican National Committee meeting in Charleston South Carolina Wednesday, the RNC Resolutions Committee was forced to vote on a RNC Resolutionknown as the Agema Resolution, supporting the proper Impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama for his many crimes of treason, tyranny and treachery against the United States and the people.

    The nine member Resolutions Committee chaired by Carolyn McLarty of Oklahoma, voted unanimously to kill the Agema Resolution in committee, preventing the full body of the RNC from ever having a vote or voice on the measure in the full meeting scheduled for Friday January 15.

    Not one member of the RNC Resolutions Committee supported the Agema Resolution to impeach what is admittedly the most impeachable administration in U.S. history. Not even known acts of treason and tyranny by the Obama Administration, not the Iran deal, or even Obama’s recent unilateral gun grab EO (Executive Order) just a week ago, was enough to cause the leadership of the Republican Party to support a resolution on impeachment.

    The nine members of the RNC Resolutions Committee who blocked the measure from the full body are as follows…

    Carolyn McLarty (Oklahoma) Chair
    Melody Potter (West Virginia)
    Paul Reynolds (Alabama)
    Tamara Scott (Iowa)
    Steve Scheffler (Iowa)
    Pat Longo (Connecticut)
    John Frey (Connecticut)
    Rosie Tripp (New Mexico)
    Linda Acherman (California)

    Republicans were given the purse strings in 2010 and have not “defunded” anything since, not even Planned Parenthood. From 2009 through 2014, the Republican excuse for not impeaching Obama was “we don’t control the Senate” and “we will impeach if we get control of the Senate,” which the people gave them control of a year ago in the 2014 election cycle.

    Since 2014, the Republican excuse for not impeaching has been, “there is no public outcry for impeachment,” which is true, because Republicans had taken “impeachment off the table” under Boehner and McConnell, and clearly, it remains “off the table” under Paul Ryan, and certainly Priebus.

    Remember, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, the people manned the guillotines, not the Kings!

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    Political parties are NOT enshrined in the US Constitution WRT national election format or biased partisan control. Ban them all!

    My political party?

    [ ] Democrat
    [ ] Republican
    [X] Pissed Off!

    Political parties have proven to be Anti-American, narrowly agenda driven and pro-globalist NWO. Arrest the RNC and DNC leadership under the RICO act.

    From George Washington’s farewell address


    “However combinations or associations of the above description [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”

  • Luke says:

    If the RNC tries to force Trump out even if he is the leader in votes and delegates then I hope he runs as a 3rd party which I will vote for him in regardless if that gets the liberal elected. But it doesn’t seem to matter if a dem or establishment RINO is president to the RNC, there gravy train of sucking off the tax payer will stay in tact..
    Americans are sick and tired of these lying leeches only wanting to stay in power, get rich and retire off the backs of the disappearing middle-class..
