Party elite arrange delegates who will switch votes in Cleveland
Earlier this week RNC bosses and faithful apparatchiks met behind closed doors in Indiana to select more than two dozen anti-Trump delegates ahead of the May 3 primary.
“While rules vary by state, delegates in most of those that Trump has won will be obligated to vote for him on the first ballot at the national convention in Cleveland. After that, roughly three-quarters of all delegates will be free to vote for anyone. Establishment Republicans, including those in Indiana, are trying to engineer a slate of delegates who, while initially bound by party rules to the results of their state primaries, will switch on subsequent ballots at the convention,” Bloomberg reported on Thursday.
A similar process is underway in Wyoming where delegates will be selected this weekend.
For Infowars readers the fact party elites pick candidates in dictatorial fashion without regard for voters is nothing new.
A decade ago the documentary Hacking Democracy revealed how elections are stolen with Diebold electronic voting machines. Local elections have been fixed for at least a century. In 1915 indictments were handed down in Terre Haute, Indiana, accusing local officials of voter fraud and, in 1932, Huey “Kingfish” Long perfected the process and won unanimously in sixteen New Orleans precincts and tallied identical votes in 28 others. The Tammany Hall political machine fixed elections in New York for almost a century.
The political elite usually attempt to hide their fraud and theft, but faced with the threat of a Donald Trump presidential win they no longer bother to hide in the shadows.
Following the theft of delegates in Colorado, Trump wrote for an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal:
I, for one, am not interested in defending a system that for decades has served the interest of political parties at the expense of the people. Members of the club—the consultants, the pollsters, the politicians, the pundits and the special interests—grow rich and powerful while the American people grow poorer and more isolated.
No one forced anyone to cancel the vote in Colorado. Political insiders made a choice to cancel it. And it was the wrong choice.
Responsible leaders should be shocked by the idea that party officials can simply cancel elections in America if they don’t like what the voters may decide.
The only antidote to decades of ruinous rule by a small handful of elites is a bold infusion of popular will. On every major issue affecting this country, the people are right and the governing elite are wrong. The elites are wrong on taxes, on the size of government, on trade, on immigration, on foreign policy.
Millions of Americans now realize democracy is a sham and the elite control the political system. Despite this realization, the political class continues to engineer a Trump defeat and arranges a brazen sabotage of the will of the American people.
On April 12 The New York Times accused Trump of “an aggressive effort to undermine the Republican nominating process by framing it as rigged and corrupt, hoping to compensate for organizational deficiencies that have left Mr. Trump with an increasingly precarious path to the nomination.”
The Times insinuated Trump’s accusations are little more than a conspiracy theory: “His effort to sow doubt about the system plays into the suspicions and anxieties that many of his most ardent backers have about a political process they believe has intentionally disenfranchised them. And it allows Mr. Trump to divert attention from his recent losses in delegate races occurring all over the country.”
Left unmentioned is the fact the delegates were stolen out from under Trump. Despite this, the New York Billionaire holds a led over Ted Cruz: 744 delegates to 545 with the straggler John Katich holding 144.
The next key state will be New York, Trump’s home turf. That primary will be held next Tuesday. If the party bosses can steal delegates there, Ted Cruz will narrow Trump’s lead by nearly 100 delegates and a contested convention will become a reality. On June 7 in California 172 delegates will be up for grabs.
The real shenanigans will begin July on the convention floor in Cleveland after the first round of ballots are cast. If the establishment has its way, there will be a flood of delegates switching over to Trump, Kasich or House Speaker Paul Ryan, who has stated he is not interested in the nomination.
