Donald Trump has been accused of “whining” about losing to Ted Cruz in Colorado. He’s is right when he says he was robbed of Colorado and it was deliberate on the part of the Colorado GOP.
The Colorado GOP Chairman Steve House made some very interesting comments back on August 11th at the Pueblo County Republican meeting.
About Donald Trump, he said:
“Do I think he’s going to be the nominee? Absolutely not.”
“Do you know who he’s taking away votes from? Ted Cruz. Right, Ted Cruz, right? Which is so hard to believe.”
“I think what happens to Donald Trump—with all due respect to a man who has made billions of dollars and had companies go bankrupt and recovered—is he’s going to get bored. He’s going to get bored. He’s going to get tired of the continuous questioneering and badgering.”
“I’m really looking forward to having Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina on the same stage. Because I think she will make him look bad. I really, really do.”
This is the audio:
This was days after the Colorado GOP decided to eliminate the straw poll.
The suggestion is Mr. House and the GOP committee wanted to make sure Trump couldn’t win.
Prior to this, the national GOP changed a rule that would have required Colorado to bind its delegates to the straw poll but Colorado likes their delegates unbound. It’s what they’ve always done and allows them to sway the election with party hacks if necessary should the voters not vote the way they want.
The Colorado executive committee, which is made up of the chairman, the treasurer, the secretary, and the vice-chairman as well as all of the chairs of the 64 county party organizations in the state, voted unanimously to scrap the straw poll.
A straw poll would have meant an election and would have involved people who are not political hacks.
If the GOP hadn’t changed the rule, they would have held the election because their delegates would have been unbound. In other words, as long as they can pretend the people have a vote but they still maintain control, it’s fine.
The convention of delegates is a communist-style operation but that’s a state decision and the people need to change it in that state.
Allegedly, House is getting death threats that he and others are blaming it on Trump and not on angry voters who didn’t get to vote which might be a bit misguided.
Trump wasn’t completely right and should have been aware of this since it was going on since August and it was again discussed publicly in February, and Trump isn’t right to blame Cruz because Cruz was aware and worked within the system, but Trump does appear to be right about being cut out of the process by the Establishment.
The Establishment cares about their own well-being and their cozy little place in DC. That applies to the Democrat Establishment cutting off Bernie at the knees and the media preparing the US for a Hillary reign.
We are being ruled and do not have control over our government.
