Amash is not owed a spot. If he pisses off enough of his own he is only has himself to blame for losing.

I don't mind Amash attacking Trump but it's his responsibility to make sure he can win a primary.

His problem is the establishment GOP. They tried to redistrict it blue - that's how much they detest him. When that did not work, they financed a neocon against him. That did not work either.

What you said is right, but this isn't indicative of Trump #DrainingtheSwamp. This is just more shit from the same old alligators.

LMAO. The topic is not Amash's supposed inability to win a primary. Pray tell, what primary has Amash failed to win?

The topic is Trump and his flunkies actively working to undermine Amash & Co.

And you're surprised by this? The Kushner/GOPe wing is calling the shots. Until Trump crashes and burns with these bums, the status quo will continue. Trump needs to be humbled with a political mallet to the face and then maybe the innate sense of self-preservation along with the natural rebelliousness inside will save him.

Trump's inner circle must be annihilated so the pro-American forces in his cabinet can reclaim power. He needs to be personally humiliated because that's seemingly the only stimuli he positively responds too. I hope Bannon and Milller are brainstorming how to rid us of these cancerous individuals.

http://forward.com/news/361887/is-jared-kushner-losing-white-house-power-struggle-to-steve-bannon/


In addition to coming when Kushner was out of reach by telephone, policies like the Muslim ban also depart from the cautions that Kushner had given the business community and others after the election, promising that his father-in-law would govern as a moderate and that he did not necessarily believe all the things he had said on the campaign trail. And the woes don’t only come on Saturday, as last week, when Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto canceled a Kushner-brokered visit to the White House, after a war of words that Trump initiated.


A source told Vanity Fair that the situation had left Kushner “f—king furious,” and had also taken a personal toll on him, with the young man losing weight and appearing ill in photos.

This cocksucker basically told the corporate scum in this country that he had the old man under his thumb and that he would rule as a 'moderate.'

Nope. Kushner is the scion of a New Jersey realty empire that has deep ties to both the disgraced Jim McGreevey and current NJ senator Cory Booker. There has never been anything MAGA about Ivanka and Jared from the beginning. They were trouble from the onset as I identified. Trump's sons are far more in line with the MAGA agenda. With that said, Bannon had originally stated that the Trump movement could be hijacked and it has.

Given what I know now, I would still have voted for Trump because the alternative would have likely led to Sarajevo like conditions nationwide. The responsible choice was to somehow avoid bloodshed if possible.

If Trump's people kept this up, it will be political suicide as observed by others also.

Quote:
I suspect he will come to his senses and this is not going to be his "settled" position. He has a track record of being impulsive, filter-free in his rhetoric and on many issues has said 180 degree opposite things. But after a while it gets clear what his real stance is and what was smart or dumb bluff.
But you are right, if he really maintained such a position, it will be political suicide.


Following might be instructive in learning about Trump's attack style. An attack from Trump can be consistent against some or it can be just a transient "art of the bluff" tactic in effort to bring people to his side. Sometimes its quite dumb but that's his style and he'll probably keep using such tactics until these stop working for him.

Yeah, Amash has been a NeverTrumper right from the start. Sanford has also been doing that. But they are not the only, or the first, Freedom Caucus members Trump and his buddies have gone after. Trump has thrown in with the establishment. They are experienced experts at co-opting everyone who goes to DC. As Massie would say, bitten by zombies. Divide and conquer.

Some would say that Trump was never anti-establishment at all. Maybe, maybe not. If Ryan, McConnell, Bill Kristol, Rubio, Graham, the US Chamber and friends all become the biggest Trump supporters in the world, then we know it was all a farce. If they turn on Trump after they manipulate him to turn on his supporters, then we know Trump is a big chump.

This implies that Trump had principles at some point, an idea completely rejected by the actual evidence. All I see is an orange man whose narcissism somehow is mistaken for some kind of will to fight for anyone but himself and his own family. And that's how it's always been.

I've seen so many people in here fall for this man's bullshit and all I can say is we really need to learn a lesson here. People demonstrate their principles through their actions. It's not rocket science to figure out who can be relied on in any way whatsoever.

I should have just had them on the list, as the establishment GOP is now supporting the welfare state, and the Dems support the warfare state, they have come to agreement on objectives, they just squabble over what color the team should wear.

You have identified the exact problem though. Trump likes socialized medicine. What Rand has been trying to do is shift him more towards free market solutions. Unfortunately, the GOP establishment likes socialized medicine too. The real leverage is trying to get them to stick more with their public rhetoric. Joe Sixpack still believes in that rhetoric, and they depend on Joe Sixpack continuing to believe in that lie.
