Have you noticed Chris Christie being elevated by the same corporate media machine previously elevating Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio? This is not coincidental. It's part of Jeb Bush's plan.

The problem for the GOPe Road Map has been the dominance of Donald Trump in disrupting their initial goals to nominate Jeb Bush with 10-20% of the primary vote. Trump, as a fiery populist "America First" frontrunner nominee was just never anticipated in their construct.

As soon as Trump eliminated the "splitter strategy" benefit? various GOPe approaches were deployed to overcome The Donald. However, almost all of the subsequent maneuvers failed as Trump gained a more broad coalition of support.

The Washington insider strategy now evolved into a concerted effort to group a non-Trump coalition, this is why no "splitter" candidate is being urged to withdraw. After failing to split/fracture the Trump supporters, the GOPe are trying to counter Trump with the formulation of palatable non-Trump candidates. The thinking is there's a large segment of the non-Trump base who are seeking a palatable candidate alternative to the crass vulgarian.

The GOPe know the larger segment of the party will never support Jeb, that's why the "splitters" were enlisted to gobble up non-jeb votes for later deposit into the Jeb delegate bank. Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina, Chris Christie, John Kasich and Mike Huckabee can all be counted on to give their small delegate counts to Jeb Bush later in the race.

However, the non-GOPe candidates Trump, Cruz and possibly Ben Carson are currently polling beyond the GOP Establishment group. Fox Poll Example:

  • GOPe Collective = 27% (Rubio 11, + Bush 3, + Christie 3, + Fiorina 3, + Paul 3, + Kasich 2, + Huckabee 1, + Santorum 1 = 27)
  • Non-GOPe Collective = 66% (Trump 39, + Cruz 18, + Carson 9 = 66)

So what we are now seeing is two aspects with specific targeting.

#1 - Put Marco Rubio against Ted Cruz to pull votes into the GOP Establishment group

#2 - Advance Chris Christie as a counter to the vulgarian uprising, hoping to pull votes into the Bush pool.

The Chris Christie and Marco Rubio collective approach is "The Alliance Strategy".

Three goals within the "Alliance Strategy":
• One goal is to make Christie a palatable alternative to Trump for the Republican voter who will never support Jeb, but is vulnerable to the media influence creating fear of Trump.
• One goal is to diminish Cruz hoping to push similar voters to Rubio.
The last goal is to keep Jeb Bush alive as a viable candidate.

All of this effort hopefully leading to a 2016 result where a coalition, or alliance of non-Trump votes, can be enough to offset the strength of the Trump broad coalition. The Alliance will then do what they originally intended to do (the splitter strategy) and give their portion to Jeb? delivering victory with little original support.

Moving forward watch to see these four fronts play out:

  1. The corporate media and Insiders will promote Chris Christie.
  2. The corporate media and Insiders will continue pitting Rubio against Cruz.
  3. The corporate media and Insiders will continue propping up the viability of Jeb Bush.
  4. The corporate media and Insiders will continue attacking Trump with Alinsky tactics: Isolate, Ridicule and Marginalize.

Just a Reminder, Trump's campaign is an insurgency. - The modern enemy of Wall Street is Main Street vulgarians. The enemy of the RNC and the lobbyist/consultant /donor class.It is not Democrats, it's Grassroots Conservatives, more vulgarians.The Republican Party, and the Republican media apparatus, view us as their enemy. We are the enemy they need to protect themselves from:

In 2014, the RNC approved selection rules that govern how each state's delegates are portioned out from the primaries. Under one of the changes, states holding their primaries between March 1 and March 14 will have their delegates doled out proportionately with election results, a change that will likely stymie a movement candidate.

States that have primaries on or after March 15 will be winner-take-all states.

That's important because another RNC rule change requires that a candidate must win a majority of delegates in eight or more states before his or her name may be presented for nomination at the 2016 Republican National Convention.

With 18 GOP presidential candidates, for now, it will be that much harder for any candidate to win a majority in any state, let alone eight.

Now, ask yourself, why would the RNC want to "stymie a movement candidate"? Who exactly does that benefit? Obviously, the "non-movement" candidate, ie "the turtle".

Isn't the entire reason for campaigning in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina etc. to make a movement/momentum?

In addition Rule #40 changed in 2014 from previously five needed state wins, to a newer threshold of eight (8):

Officially, it's Rule 40 in the RNC handbook and it states that any candidate for president "shall demonstrate the support of a majority of the delegates from each of eight (8) or more states" before their name is presented for nomination at the national convention. (article March 2014)

Again, ask yourself who does this benefit? A candidate can win seven states outright, and still not have their name presented for nomination?

These rules were made/affirmed in 2014 - Who or what exactly was the GOP concerned about blocking in 2016 that would necessitate such rules? When combined with other rule changes you can clearly identify a consolidation of power within the RNC apparatus intentionally constructed to stop the candidate of the GRASSROOTS from achieving victory.

Think 1976 - The same GOP establishment apparatus screwed Ronald Reagan out of the nomination with the use of delegates at the convention. The GOP establishment gave the nomination to Gerald Ford knowing that he would lose to Carter.In '76 the GOP establishment were OK losing to Carter. In 2015 the same GOPe is just as OK losing the 2016 race to Hillary Clinton if needed. They still retain power. It buys them 4 more years.

Meanwhile if I see Ana Navarro on TV one more time I might puke. She's a Bush toady and dumb as a brick.
