The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775

Jeb Bush & GOPe Work Together With CNN To Attack Trump

Here's the Nonsense:  The Republican candidates have a fair competition among themselves and we can trust that unlike the Democrats, there won't be any shenanigans in the primaries.

Here's the Horse Sense:  The GOPe (Republican establishment) are no better than the Democrats and this new story shows the kind of things they'll do to discredit and damage a non-GOPe candidate.

In a move that's no surprise to anyone who's paid attention, the GOPe (Republican establishment) made another attempt to damage Donald Trump's campaign this week by joining with Jeb Bush's campaign and CNN to attack him. 

Think about that.  CNN, the GOPe, and Jeb Bush all aligned together.  That should tell you something about who they really are and why none of them are our friends and they cannot be trusted.  CNN is nothing but a typical Democrat aiding network just like the other major TV networks, except for Fox who is the GOPe supporting network.  The GOPe, the home of the likes of John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham, wants to continue to grow government and take rights away from American citizens, just like the Democrats.  And Jeb Bush is their favored candidate.  Although they've got others such as Marco "give 'em amnesty" Rubio, Carly FioRINO Fiorina, and John "Obamacare is a good thing" Kasich, etc. in the wings in case they need them.  These people are not out to help America.

But this time the focus needs to be on Jeb Bush and his efforts with the GOPe and CNN to damage Trump.  In a report that should be headline news for all conservative media, the Conservative Treehouse has brought out an eye-opening story.  (I highly recommend clicking this link to read the entire story as it's well worth your time to see what was done.)

It seems that at Jon "RINO candidate from 2012" Huntsman's No Labels event a few days ago, the female audience member who tried to stump Trump turns out to be Lauren Batchelder who is a GOP paid political operative and a paid Bush staff member.  And, while she claims to personally be pro-life, she tried to stump Trump by appearing to stand as a pro-choice member of the audience.

As is typical, opposition didn't deter Trump from his positions and he stood strong without wavering.  More than anything the exchange between them simply made him look stronger and more principled.  But the real message here is that we can never trust the GOPe to do things in an honest way.

Underhanded politics isn't exclusive to the Democrats and media.  The GOPe are just as dirty in their politics, and don't be deceived by thinking otherwise.  We've seen the media work hard to try to discredit Donald Trump's campaign, which should be no surprise given that they've essentially been an arm of the Democrat Party for decades.  After all, they see their job as paving the road for the Democratic candidates by destroying everyone except the easy to beat GOPe candidates.  They wanted John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012 for the Democrats to compete with because they were the easiest to beat.  

But the GOPe isn't immune from the same tactics.  They want to destroy non-GOPe candidates because they want to retain their power.  They would rather have the Democrats win than a non-GOPe candidate because at least they'll retain their jobs and their power under Democrats.  After all, their logic goes, if the Democrats are in power, they'll still have our jobs as the minority.  But if the non-GOPe candidates win, they'll be replaced by politicians who agree with them.  So, it's better to have Democrats win than non-GOPe candidates where the GOPe would lose power.

These are the same people who demanded Donald Trump sign a loyalty pledge, but then many of them turn around and make it clear they wouldn't support him if he's the GOP nominee.  People like that (i.e.; Bill Kristol, etc.) are truly hypocrites and set the double-standards in politics.

While non-GOPe candidates like Trump and Carson are currently leading, you can expect more underhanded attempts to discredit and destroy them in the coming months... and not just from the Democrats.  Now is the time to be working for your candidates because the primary season is upon us.  We choose the candidates in the primaries, not the general election and it's important to work hard now to make sure we have the candidates we want nominated next summer.  If not, we'll end up with a GOPe candidate which will assure a Democrat win in November 2016.
