Today I discuss the upcoming Republican Convention, the now infamous convention Rule 40(b) and how the establishment has purposely corrupted the process and rigged the system to get the guy they want, regardless of the will of the people.
In segment two the discussion turns to the mass Syrian migration into Europe. The Pope, Pope Francis, gives us his thoughts on the matter of what he calls the “Arab Invasion” and somehow he considers this is a good thing.

The Politico, the go-to site of the establishment wing of the Republican Party writes that, “The GOP is taking its most aggressive step yet to force Donald Trump’s hand.” This is what they call aggressive?
Anyway, the Republican National Committee (RNC) has gotten Donald Trump to sign the pledge not to go third party if he ends up not winning the nomination, and also pledging to back the nominee, whoever it ends up being.
In another article, the Politico writes that, “In the short term, it clears the way for his [Trump] name to appear on primary ballots and addresses the concerns of Republican voters turned off by his initial unwillingness to pledge his fealty to the party,” because when comes down to it, we all know, it always comes down to the “party.” Not the country – just the party.
And what “voters” were turned off? Judging by the polls and Trump’s double digit lead in most, it looks like wishful thinking to say he has “turned off voters.” Three or four times thus far, the establishment has quietly cheered the death blows Trump has landed on himself, only to witness his popularity rise with every supposed blunder. read more

On Thursday rumor had it that instructions had gone out from the RNC or other establishment inner circles to take Trump out during Thursday night’s debate. Those of us who heard the rumor figured one or more of the candidates would be charged with the task.
Who knew it would turn out to be the Fox News team of moderators – or at least two of the three. As it turned out, not one candidate stepped up to take down Trump in any sustained way. It was left up to the two moderators Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly. Bret Baier appeared to remain above the fray.
Personally, I haven’t liked Wallace for years. He’s been on the establishment team for a while now. But Kelly was a major disappointment. I thought she was better, and fairer than this. But she too has shown herself to be just another establishment toady.
From the very beginning of the debate, I recall talking out loud to the TV, saying that this was going to be a night of gotcha questions. And that’s what it turned out to be. Whoever the establishment wanted targeted would be taken out, and tonight it was Trump. Next time and maybe someone else.
But the other candidates either didn’t get the memo or simply chose not to play the game. They seemed content to just let it play out. Her motivation seemed apparent when Kelly asked Trump to explain his one-man war on women. When he tried to make a joke of it, she turned cold as ice. She acted like a rhymes-with-witch. At that point it appeared to be a perfect opportunity for one of the other big tent candidates to join in the fray. But none did. read more
