Posted on 08/06/2015 9:14:13 AM PDT by Red Steel
Though the Fox News promos state it is a debate of Republican candidates, most of the networks on-air personalities have admitted publicly it has turned into the Donald Trump show as the top GOP contender has become the single most referenced topic on the minds of everyone following the 2016 Race for the White House.
That reality is not sitting well with GOP power brokers who are said to have made it clear to operatives linked to a variety of candidate camps that Donald Trump cannot be allowed to appear to win tomorrow nights debate. Some are said to have taken an even more aggressive stance by indicating Trumps Republican rivals are to take him out tomorrow night.
Trump has shocked the GOP establishment with his currently growing base of support based largely on his straight talk and a repeated promise to Make America Great Again.
That dominance is said to be facing its most focused challenge tomorrow night as Mr. Trump will be target #1 for a number of GOP hopefuls who have been told their own presidential hopes will be finished if they do not help in breaking the Trump momentum once and for all. This threat is said to come from an assortment of Wall Street and business interests concerned over the potential volatility of a Trump political machine volatility that might make him unmanageable should he actually go on to become the Republican nominee.
It should also be noted some of these high-powered donors are helping to finance the campaigns of BOTH Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush. Presently, Donald Trump represents the single greatest threat to their intention of controlling the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
Of the candidates who are said to have been given their anti-Trump marching orders last night, one was apparently told with the greatest sense of urgency Senator Marco Rubio
Senator Rubio is currently sitting near the bottom of the top-tier candidate rankings with just 5% support among Republican voters. He was not so long ago viewed by some to be a legitimate contender for the GOP nomination. If he is to regain that former momentum (and the all-important campaign dollars that come to a real contender) he must prove himself to the political donor class tomorrow night by coming out aggressively against Mr. Trump.
It was reportedly the Rubio campaign that was specifically given the directive to, take Trump out during this weeks debate.
Rush is talking about this and pointing out the hypocrisy.
Who are these “GOP power brokers?” I want their cell phone numbers.
Rubio will NEVER get my vote. Nevah.
Push him 3rd party and they lose.
They think it will be the same as it has historically been. But there is a sea change of a sort out here in real America. We don’t want a bunch of illegals invading us like a 7 year locust plague that goes on forever.
Frankly, I could give a crap what happens to the Republican party as a formal entity. They are my enemy, actually. Why is this? Take a look at Boehner, McConnell, McCain, Graham and all the RINO rest.
Yes, I’m listening too. Rush wants Jeb Bush to apologize.
GO FOR IT eGOP !@!
Prove why Trump is winning.
All you had to do was tell the truth and act on it, and you too could be in the same position as Trump. But all of you were cowarsds who wept in a corner every time the libtard media screamed “ARE YOU GOING TO APOLOGIZE FOR THAT?” any time you meekly tried to tell the truth.
It amazes me that people on this forum put so much trust in some politicians.
Tonight it will be all the 9 dwarves and the moderators vs. Mr. universe Donald Trump( that was a good article! lol).
Who will win?
Unmanageable is why Trump is so popular. He has no favors to pay back.
Need to stick a fork in it. Jeb Bush is done.
If I were an elite, I’d give the job to Cruz. He’s got the skills, this is his best thing, he stands a snowball’s chance of getting elected, and his wife is in a great position to be pressured and rewarded by Wall Street which the article says is where this “take him out” order is coming from.
And if Mr Trump does well in the debate, I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if the orders to ‘take him out’ by other, more permanent means might come out from some of the power brokers.
I hope Mr Trump has hired some real good security.
Excepting Trump...All their immigration plans are shot to hell.
When will they wise up.
It's not about getting out the Hispanic vote....it's about getting out the "Real American" vote!!
And neither does Ted Cruz.
This may piss voters off enough to put Trump in the 50%,
Obama is Robbing the American People of Wealth, Health and Liberty
But this Obama monster would not even have been elected if democrats hadn’t given green cards to 45 million 3rd world immigrants since 1970 (1 million new green cards per year). these 45 million immigrants plus their kids plus illegals are all leftists who vote for leftist policies in the USA . and this is why the USA has moved to the left and why the USA is in big trouble
In 1970 we Americans had the greatest civilization ever created with more freedom, prosperity than any other people
democrats decided that all this freedom and prosperity , middle class etc was no good and that America needed to become a socialist state in the model of the USSR.
So to turn the USA into a socialist state democrats changed immigration laws to to import 3rd world leftists every year to destroy our culture, capitalism and freedom and install socialism/tyranny. And this is why the decline occurred and will get exponentially worse as immigrants reach critical mass.
Immigration determines all the other issues. read Ann Coulters new book to see what we need to do to save America
The Elites are scared.
Ted Cruz seems to be pro H1-B. Deal breaker. Sorry, I know he’s the only adult in the room.
Big money doesn’t want to upset the cronyism cart.
All the more reason to support Trump.
