[size=32]KOCH BROTHERS RETREAT FROM PLAN TO ATTACK DONALD TRUMP[/size]
March 8, 2016
The multi-billionaires Charles and David Koch brothers, arguably the nation's most powerful and generous conservative donors in the United States, decided they will not use their $400 million Political Action Committee to attempt to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump's juggernaut to the presidential nomination, according to political strategist Michael Baker.
GOP political strategist and author Roger Stone had reported that participants at a meeting held by the Democrats' favorite bogeymen, the uber-wealthy Koch Brothers, and presidential hopeful, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, somehow leaked their plans to sabotage the nomination of Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention later this year.
The two brothers, Charles G. and David H. Koch, met with other Republican millionaires and billionaires had allocated an immense $75 million figure to be spent targeting and terminating Trump's successful political race. According to Stone, they also discussed how they would use the already-defeated 2012 President Barack Obama opponent, Mitt Romney, as their ‘Plan B’ if Rubio's also ends up a loser on Super Tuesday.
The decision to drop "Plan B" and any other anti-Trump activity by the billionaire industrialists is one more example of Republican establishment inability to derail the real estate magnate Trump's bid for the White House, and their hope for another nominee appears to be dashed since the Koch brothers will not launch a highly financed anti-Trump campaign.
"We have no plans to get involved in the primary," said James Davis, spokesman for Freedom Partners, the Koch brothers’ political umbrella group told reporters.
According to a Trump political strategist, Roger Stone, the Koch brothers made the decision because they decided based on several recent incidents that spending millions of dollars attacking Trump would be futile and a waste of resources better used in Senate, House of governor races. They decided that none of the attacks against Donald Trump stick.
The Koch brothers lost millions of dollars they donated to the 2012 Republican presidential bid of Newt Gingrich and then Mitt Romney. While Gingrich was their first choice and shared their conservative ideals, Romney was the very definition of a Republican in Name Only (RINO) who actually created government healthcare that Obama copied and was pro-choice and not adverse to big government.
"Romney was not capable of beating Obama and the news media who he seemed to be trusting," said political guru Mike Baker. "Republicans have got to learn that they aren't only battling the Democrats who are vicious to begin with; they also have to fight the news media who will always support their liberal-left brethren. Ronald Reagan seems to be the only Republican who understood that," Baker said.
Donors and media reports have speculated that they would deploy their vast political network to target Trump. Then the Koch brothers gathered America’s wealthiest political donors for a meeting. The Kochs especially disliked his hardline views on immigration --- they tend to be more libertarian than conservative. They hated Trump's promise of building a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico and deporting millions of illegal immigrants.
In addition, Hillary Clinton — who wanted to jump on the anti-Trump media bandwagon this week — has accused Trump of racism for his strong stance against illegal aliens.
While most politicians would respond quietly (if at all), Trump shot back via a Facebook post. Here is what The Donald said:
"Failing candidate Hillary Clinton, who is desperately trying to hold on to her lead in the democratic primary against Bernie Sanders, is knowingly putting out lies about my stance on illegal immigration. I said “Mexico is sending”— I’m not knocking immigration or immigrants, but rather am very critical of the country of Mexico for sending us people that they don’t want. Likewise I am very critical of illegal immigration and the tremendous problems including crime, which it causes.
"She is desperate, she is sad, and she is obviously very nervous when she has to revert to issues that have already been settled given the absolute accuracy of my statement. She speaks about “my tone” and that’s the problem with our country’s leaders. They are more worried about tone than results! It’s not about being nice— it’s about being competent.
"Hillary should spend more time producing her illegally hidden emails and less time trying to obfuscate a statement by me that is totally clear and obviously very much accepted by the public as true. I am honored, however, that she is attacking me, instead of Jeb Bush. Obviously she knows that JEB is no longer her real competition. The last person she wants to face is Donald Trump."http://www.newswithviews.com/NWV-News/news501.htm
