This isn't so much a "pro-Trump" posting as it is an anti-RINO warning.
The morons controlling the GOP Establishment are doing everything within their power to undo all the gains made by the Tea Party - the 2010 recapture of the House... the 2014 recapture of the Senate...
Understand, folks... people like Boehner, McConnell, the Bush Family... they'd rather be uniformed but "sitting on the bench" than risk injury "on the field."
Forget Trump. May of the RINOs would rather the Left retain power - with RINOs picking up the crumbs of power as "second string players" - than cede "first string" status to the likes of Cruz, Paul, Gohmert, Lee...
We Americans have a problem on our hands! We live in a two-party political system where both parties are largely one and the same. We have the Leftist controlled Democratic Party... and we have the RINO Party... the "Republican In Name Only" Party. This isn't presenting "We the People" with a choice; it's instead steering the Ship of State full speed towards the rocks!
Folks... you're all familiar with the old adage "The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend?" Well... returning to Trump... whether you're a fan of not, the truth is that Donald Trump is largely speaking for the Republican base now... AND... also for large segments of the traditional (liberal but not Leftist) "old-style" Democratic base.
Whomever the "real" Donald Trump is, the reality of the moment is that the Trump "movement" meets the criteria of "Enemy of Our Enemy." And, folks... "We the People" need all the "Enemies of Our Enemy" that we can get!
Please read the following column penned by Reagan loyalist Patrick J. Buchanan. Consider what Buchanan has to say. I'll comment within the column itself.

In the Cleveland debate, Donald Trump refused to commit to support whomever the Republican Party nominates in 2016.
Trump would be wise to maintain his freedom of action, for there is a plot afoot in The Washington Post Conservative Club to purge Trump from the Republican Party before the primaries begin.
“A political party has a right to … secure its borders,” asserts the Post’s George Will, “a duty to exclude interlopers.” Will wants The Donald “excommunicated” and locked out of all GOP debates until he kneels and takes a loyalty oath to the nominee.
“Marginalizing Trump” carries no risk of “alienating a substantial Republican cohort,” Will assures us, for these “Trumpites” are neither Republicans nor conservatives. Better off without such trash.
* GEORGE WILL IS ONE OF THE MOST BRILLIANT IDIOTS OUT THERE, FOLKS! BY THIS I MEAN HE'S AN INTELLECTUAL... WITH ALL OF THE "INTELLECTUAL CLASS'" COMMON SENSE FAILINGS. AS IS FAR TOO OFTEN THE CASE... WILL IS JUST PLAIN WRONG.
The Post’s Michael Gerson says “establishment Republicans” must “make clear that [Trump] has moved beyond the boundaries of serious and civil discourse.” He loathes the Trumpites as much as Will.
* AND THE OPEN SECRET? MEN LIKE GERSON AND WILL LOATH BLUE COLLAR AMERICA. THEY LOATH "SIMPLISTIC" CONCEPTS... SUCH AS RIGHT vs. WRONG. THEY WORSHIP AT THE ALTER OF THE ESTABLISHMENT WHICH AFFORDS THEM POWER, MONEY, AND EGO GRATIFICATION.
Trump’s followers are “xenophobic,” Gerson tells CNN. They have a “resentment of outsiders, of Mexico, of China, and immigrants. That’s more like a European right-wing party, a UKIP or a National Front in France. Republicans can’t incorporate that.”
* AAH, YES... "XENOPHOBIC." (THAT'S ONE OF THEM THAR BIG "COLLEGE WORDS." IT MEANS "FEAR OF THE OUTSIDER... FEAR OF THE OTHER.") YEP. LET THE JUVENILE NAME-CALLING BEGIN! LET OUR "BETTERS" TELL US JUST HOW "SILLY" WE ARE TO FOCUS ON AMERICAN - AFRICAN-AMERICAN... HISPANIC-AMERICAN... ASIAN-AMERICAN... AND JUST PLAIN OL' "WHITE-AMERICAN" - JOBS AND FUTURES RATHER THAN CLIMBING ON BOARD THE "EXPLOITATION OF CHEAP FOREIGN LABOR" TRAIN! HOW "SILLY" OF US...
But if the GOP has no room for Trump’s followers, it has no future. For there simply aren’t that many chamber-of-commerce and country-club Republicans.
* DEAD... ON... RIGHT...!!!
Gerson mentions with disgust the U.K. Independence Party and France’s National Front. What do those parties have in common? Both are anti-New World Order. Both arose to recapture the lost independence and sovereignty of their nations from the nameless, faceless bureaucrats of Brussels, those EU hacks who now dictate the kinds of laws and societies the Brits and French are permitted to have.
What motivates [adherents to these parties] is not all that different from what brought the farmers to Lexington Green and Concord Bridge and inspired colonists to stand by the original Tea Party boys in Boston.
New parties arise and outsiders are drawn into politics to fill voids and vacuums created by the failure of incumbent parties and politicians.
* ANYONE WANNA TRY AND TELL ME THAT THE PRESENT LEADERSHIPS OF THE REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PARTIES HAVEN'T FAILED AMERICA?
Case in point: Ex-speechwriter Gerson’s boss George W. Bush.
With the country united behind him after 9/11, Bush called for war on an “axis of evil” — Iraq, Iran and North Korea — that had nothing to do with 9/11. He then persuaded Congress to authorize an invasion of Iraq to strip it of weapons of mass destruction it did not have.
* REMEMBER THEN-SENATOR HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON SUPPORTING BUSH ON THIS? (NO, NO... DON'T BLOCK IT OUT, DEMOCRATS; IT HAPPENED!) REMEMBER ALL THE OTHER DEMOCRATS WHO FOLLOWED BUSH'S LEAD?!
Cost: 4,500 American dead, 35,000 wounded warriors, $1 trillion dollars sunk, 100,000 dead Iraqis, half a million widows and orphans, a country ravaged and a Mideast now awash in war and bloodshed.
* THOUGH TO BE FAIR, OBAMA'S AND CLINTON'S SUPPORT FOR "THE ARAB SPRING" DIDN'T EXACTLY HELP; NOR DID THEIR INVASION OF YET ANOTHER COUNTRY - LIBYA - WHICH HADN'T ATTACKED US. AND LET'S FACE IT, FOLKS, MOST OF THE CASUALTIES WE SUFFERED IN AFGHANISTAN HAPPENED UNDER OBAMA'S (TOTALLY INCOMPETENT) WATCH.
Political result (of Bush's incompetence): The Republicans lost both houses of Congress in 2006, and the White House in 2008 to an anti-war Democratic Senator whose voting record was identical to that of Bernie Sanders.
[And yet today] the leading establishment candidate of the Republican Party elites, in national polls and cash raised, is Jeb Bush, who took five days to concede the war his brother started may have been a mistake.
(*BONE WEARY SIGH*)
And the leading candidate of the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, voted for the war that proved a disaster and against the surge that staved off the disaster until the Americans departed.
(*NODDING WHILE SIGHING*)
Our Beltway elites are demanding that Trump apologize for his remarks about women. But when have they apologized for having inflicted this disaster upon our nation and the Middle East?
Thursday, the Census Bureau revealed that a record 42.1 million immigrants, here legally and illegally, are in the U.S., a population explosion being driven by Mexicans still flooding across the border. Is it “xenophobic” to ask if Americans approve of this historic change in the composition and character of the country they love?
Is it outrageous to ask whether there is a correlation between this massive infusion of unskilled and semi-skilled labor from the Third World, and the stagnant and falling wages of native-born Americans?
The trade figures just came in for June. The trade deficit shot to $43.8 billion. Take out the $20 billion surplus in services, it was a $64 billion deficit in goods, pointing to a 2015 trade deficit of $750 billion in things Americans make with their hands, tools, machines.
This has been going on since Bush 41. And the correlation between these trade deficits and the trade deals our elites have negotiated is absolute.
Trump says our negotiators have been getting their clocks cleaned by the Japanese, Chinese and Mexicans. Is he wrong? Or are "free trade" and open borders now articles of faith, defined dogma, denial of which gets you excommunicated from the party of Gerson and Will?
Trump should tell the GOP, in the neocons’ favorite phrase, “All options are on the table.”
