Disgruntled GOP Elites Plot And Scheme To Regain Control


These guys are as bad as Democrats.

Republican insiders plot post-election party overhaul

Republican insiders opposed to Donald Trump have begun discussions to prepare a party overhaul whether its candidate wins the presidency or not.

They regard Trump as the symptom of a disease that afflicts the GOP and fear that emergency restructuring is needed to prevent massive losses among racial minorities that are a growing share of the electorate and have generally accelerated every presidential election cycle since 1992.

Those involved in the plotting sessions say the GOP leadership have lost or ceded control of the Republican brand to outsiders who don’t understand or care about the principles for which it stands. Republicans’ top priority, these insiders explain, should be to reclaim authority over their party.

“You have to have a culture change as a party. You have to be very comfortable being disliked by loud, disruptive, negative voices that have only one goal and that goal is to tear down the brand of the Republican Party,” Josh Holmes said this week during an interview with the Washington Examiner’s “Examining Politics” podcast.

Holmes is part of the new crop of influential Republican consultants who have the ear of top party leaders in Washington and are working on high-level initiatives. He previously served as chief of staff and top political advisor to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

In interviews with several Republican strategists, some who requested anonymity in order to speak candidly, many concerns about the future of the GOP were aired, as were suggestions for what it would take to right the ship.

But one consensus concern was the damage they believe conservative advocacy organizations and influential conservative media personalities have inflicted on the Republican Party.

Republican insiders explain that these two communities, whether motivated by profit or good intentions, have poisoned the party’s image with the base by setting expectation too high to reach in an era of Democratic control of the White House, and until last year, the Senate.

Meanwhile, by using their influence to stymie pragmatic legislation that involved the basic responsibilities of governing required of Republicans since they won back the House in 2010, the kind of incremental progress sought by moderate GOP voters also failed to materialize.

“It’s time for the conservative commentariat industry to be more responsible and focus on winning elections,” said GOP strategist Brad Todd, who advises House and Senate candidates.

When it comes to winning elections in recent years the GOP has dominated in state and congressional races across the country. The “conservative commentariat industry” had a lot to do with it. But the GOP hasn’t won the White House the last two terms, even though the last two nominees were GOPe approved.

The real problem is that the base is sick of what the elites are selling. So the base keeps electing candidates who promise crazy things like enforcing immigration laws and smaller government. Then they expect those candidates to keep their promises.

Oh, the humanity!

But wait! There’s more!

“So long as some of the most powerful voices in conservative media spend more time attacking Republicans than Democrats, the Democrats will hold the White House,” a Republican strategist who has advised multiple GOP presidential candidates said.

You mean like those voices who are attacking Donald Trump instead of Hillary Clinton?

In 1972 the Democrat insider elites were not happy with the base’s choice of nominee. The rest of the country was not impressed either, and Nixon won 49 out of 57 states. But pre-Watergate Nixon would have been tough to beat no matter who the Democrats nominated.

Nonetheless, the Democrat insider elites decided that the party base could not be trusted to pick the nominee. So they rigged the system. They created something called a “superdelegate” which is just a fancy term for an insider elite. Superdelegates are not elected. Most people don’t even know who they are. But they control who is nominated. And if they have to change the rules to make it happen they will. Fuck the voters.

Now the GOPe wants to emulate the Democrats.

    “A little revolution now and then is a good thing.”

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      “Societies exist under three forms sufficiently distinguishable. 1. Without government, as among our Indians. 2. Under governments wherein the will of every one has a just influence, as is the case in England in a slight degree, and in our states in a great one. 3. Under governments of force: as is the case in all other monarchies and in most of the other republics. To have an idea of the curse of existence under these last, they must be seen. It is a government of wolves over sheep. It is a problem, not clear in my mind, that the 1st. condition is not the best. But I believe it to be inconsistent with any great degree of population. The second state has a great deal of good in it. The mass of mankind under that enjoys a precious degree of liberty and happiness. It has it’s evils too: the principal of which is the turbulence to which it is subject. But weigh this against the oppressions of monarchy, and it becomes nothing. Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem. Even this evil is productive of good. It prevents the degeneracy of government, and nourishes a general attention to the public affairs. I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.1 Unsuccesful rebellions indeed generally establish the incroachments on the rights of the people which have produced them. An observation of this truth should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions, as not to discourage them too much. It is a medecine necessary for the sound health of government.” – Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, Paris, January 30, 17872

    “Party Leaders” like Mitch McConnell are exactly what’s wrong with the elite GOP. “We can’t do nothin’ in DC ’cause ‘Wah! Wah! Wah!’,” is all they know how to say. Worthless creeps!

    Rinse Prius:

    “By referring to millions of Americans as ‘deplorables’ and ‘irredeemable,’ Hillary Clinton is showing her outright contempt for ordinary people and proving yet again why Americans overwhelmingly regard her as dishonest and untrustworthy. Insulting everyday Americans to a group of wealthy donors shows whose priorities Clinton really has in mind and exposes the hypocrisy of a candidate whose stated desire to unite the country is clearly all for show. Millions of Americans are supporting Donald Trump because they are sick of corrupt career politicians like Hillary Clinton who regard what voters think as an afterthought. The truly deplorable thing in this race is the shameful level of condescension and disrespect Hillary Clinton is showing to her fellow citizens.”

      Does this mean Rinsie-baby is good people again? Because IMO he ain’t so much.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I noticed how she singled out David Duke and that Breitbart guy on the Trump campaign now. Let’s look at her supporters, icky feminists with potty mouths and sexually assault their little sisters. DeRay and other LEO haters. Bimbo and Himbo celebrities. Sharia Law supporters (the hypocrisy with her fem supporters!), “Carlos Dingleberry” who uses his toddler son to troll for sexting partners. Others? Just ew Hillary, shut up!

    Hour long, but great discussion:

    • blowme0bama says:

      I dig Scott’s commentary, but it really smells an awful lot like those literary articles styled, “psychosexual themes of the Spanish Civil War in William Faulkner’s Yocknapatawpha County”. That is, he goes behind after the fact and finds something then latches on to it to make it sound as if it were some sort of 14th dimensional chess shit going on, when that’s really not the case.

    I added our gab names to a new Gab Club page under Blog Pages (sidebar)

    Thanks to shezzk for the suggestion!

    • lateblum says:

      You see, you really are a Community Organizer. Next stop the White House !

    • Shez ZK says:

      Wonderful! You are GOOD! That was fast, it’s a great start. (Next time you add something to that page would you please slightly edit my handle in the list as it shows on Gab: @ShezZK instead of all lower case. Thanks! *mwah*)

      I clicked on the link that @Caro posts for the #GabStarterPack: http://imgur.com/a/PL9yz
      She has some handy info in the graphics. I finally saw the character limit is 300 per post. She gives recommended sizes for header Cover Photo as 850 x 315 pixels (or 1700×630 will scale down to 850×315)

      I love brand new projects.

    No more supporting High Scool Football via donations and no NFL football this season for me.
    F-U-C-K them all.
    Now color me deplorable.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That happened at a local high school game last night. Local Pravda interviewed their coach who called them “brave”. They got their asses kicked by the other team🙂

      • CiscoKid says:

        A anger because of I think of those who enlist in one of our Armed Services right out of High School and now are in combat zones, putting their lives on the line.
        Not the scrimmage line, but the one that can leave you dead or horrifically wounded, mentally or physically .
        Maybe I was a little sensitive because a local National Guard unit was activated and are on their way to Afganistian.
        Local tv did interviews with a few of the troops.
        Watching I couldn’t help thinking, “it looks like these guys are cutting class and playing soldier.” They were that young, too me. But their the real deal .
        And the Commanding Officer, a Major, her face was that of a prom queen, but don’t be fooled, she was standing tall and squared away. They’ll do well.
        Medical unit, only 20 troops, but on the way.
        God bless and watch over them.

        • I once met a guy who enlisted in the Navy as a medic to avoid getting drafted into Vietnam. He figured he would be safe. A few months later he graduated from medic training and was assigned to a Marine unit in Khe Sahn.

            Three divisions of the People’s Army of Vietnam will ruin your day.

          • CiscoKid says:

            It’s late, I know I have a book somewhere listing the decorations earned there during that action.
            MOH, Navy Cross, Silver Star and Dozens of Purple Hearts.
            Navy Corpsman, Medics ,
            are on that list.

    Standing ovation for Trump at Schlafly’s memorial service.
    Talk about being in the dark, I had no idea that Schlafly had written a book, with two co-authors, titled, “The Conservative Case for Trump.
