Man, between this and the fact that an anti-Trumper was just put in charge of the Rules Committee, if you thought the relationship between Team Trump and the RNC was strained before, you aint seen nothing yet.
Theres no claim here, please note, that Priebus is encouraging the dump-Trumpers. If he thinks a coup against Trump would shatter the party and sink any replacement nominee, he might actually be trying to head off the effort.

A convention of the states?
Since the eGOP has broken their pledge, American will tell the eGOP to screw itself!
Son people think they are above us by some fantasy divine right. Some people are naive of their actions repercussions.
All of the discussion about the RNC rules Committee acting to undermine the presumptive nominee is silly, added Spicer, also the RNCs chief strategist.
“There is no organized effort, strategy or leader of this so-called movement. It is nothing more than a media creation and a series of tweets.

No, it will be the nuclear option against the GOP.
If the GOP becomes an impediment to fixing our country (and this coup would signal that), then the only solution is to eliminate the Republican party so it can be replaced in a future election cycle.
That means removing ALL Republican office holders—from congress down to local dog catcher. A party without any officer holders is just a social club (ask the Libertarian party).
That does no mean sitting on your hands and not voting. It means working AGAINST the Republican candidate. It means voting for the candidate most likely to beat the Republican in EVERY race.
I hope it doesn’t come to that. The GOP has one last chance to survive in Trump.
Maybe you’re correct, but in your scenario, while we were waiting for a new party to coalesce, the Democrats would unimpeded single party rule at all levels of government.
A coalescing successor party to the GOP would find itself squeezed on all sides by the government and the media by a fully powerful single party.
We can only hope that Priebus is truly polling the state delegations for feedback, on the possible number of real defections from TRUMP at the Convention and learn if they are real or imaginary numbers.
Any professional over a large organization would do the same in the midst of this magnitude of controversy, and with his own phone ringing off the wall.
We can hope Priebus wants to get out in front of trouble and will smoke out those whose nefarious plot so he can cut their legs off at the knees and restore some certainty for a successful Convention with normalcy intact, and sure Rules that do no overthrow both the peoples choice and the Party convention itself.
If they screw Trump, the first step in the Conservative agenda should be to totally wreck the GOP. Force creatures like Ryan and the rest of them to abandon their Potemkin village and go where they belong - the Democrat party. Have once purged the political scene of these people, conservatives will be free to create a unified conservative party to oppose the Democrats. But the GOP must be destroyed first to achieve that goal.
Preibus is not my favorite but he’s not stupid
And some heavyweights Are now Trump
What do they have now? The same thing, only as kabuki theatre.
The Republicans in congress just gave Obama full funding for his Middle East refugee resettlement program.
Removing every Republican from every office in every election until there are no more Republicans
Problem is that there is still four weeks till the convention
That’s how they have kept us on the plantation and voting for Cheap Labor Express stooges.
Snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory for decades now.
Who are they?
Trump voters are just not delegates and those who are, remain a small minority, even on the committees.
We can only pray they will support the nominee.
>We can only pray they will support the nominee.
If they fail to do so there will be war. Democracy is the system where armies line up to be counted and the numbers are used in place of battler. Take away the number counting and you’ll get street battles and low level warfare. The type seen in Wiemar Germany.
