Ben Carson will not play Republican House Negro

As far as I'm concerned, this is the first interesting thing Ben Carson has said since he started his quixotic campaign:
Ben Carson on Friday blasted the Republican National Committee following a Washington Post report that nearly two-dozen establishment party figures were prepping for a potential brokered convention as Donald Trump continues to lead most polls.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus held a dinner in Washington, D.C., on Monday, and, according to five people who spoke with the Post, the possibility of Trump heading into the Cleveland convention with a substantial number of delegates was a topic of discussion. Some attendees suggested the establishment lay the groundwork for a floor fight that could lead the party’s mainstream wing to unite behind an alternative. Carson rejected this approach.

“If the leaders of the Republican Party want to destroy the party, they should continue to hold meetings like the one described in the Washington Post this morning,” Carson said in a statement released by his campaign.

Carson said he prays the Post’s report is incorrect and threatened to leave the GOP. “If it is correct, every voter who is standing for change must know they are being betrayed. I won’t stand for it,” said Carson, who added that if the plot is accurate, “I assure you Donald Trump won’t be the only one leaving the party.”

The retired neurosurgeon said that next summer’s Cleveland convention could be the last Republican National Convention if leaders try to manipulate it.

“I am prepared to lose fair and square, as I am sure is Donald,” Carson said. “But I will not sit by and watch a theft. I intend on being the nominee. If I am not, the winner will have my support. If the winner isn’t our nominee then we have a massive problem.”
Good for him. He may not be a serious candidate, but it's good to see the lesser players calling out the corrupt Republican establishment.

The "election cycle" remains a system for control.

While the Matrix series veered wildly into strange with time, brilliant was the notion that Zion was a pre-programmed subsystem for harmlessly venting the energies of those who wouldn't take the Control Program.

Political reform is an oxymoron until all the ingredients are in place for a true reshuffle of the deck. Until the market capitalization of the stock and bond markets gets hit like an asteroid strike, that time has yet to arrive.

Today is akin to a tornado watch; conditions are right for that kind of storm, but none is yet in evidence.

This is Carson hedging against a loss to Trump. If he goes out, he's going out in a blaze of glory. After his demonstrated ability to learn from Trump's unapologetic stance, it's not too surprising that he should be the one to say this. What *will* be surprising is if any other candidates say similar things.

With all this talk about a brokered convention... What would happen if the outsider, like Trump, Carson, Fiorina and maybe Cruz decided to throw their lot together. Would that make a substantial amount to put a monkey wrench in the Cuckservatives plans?

Blogger Matamoros December 11, 2015 1:04 PM  

We are, perhaps, witnessing the end of the Republican Party. With Lincoln the Republicans became a regional party (if you don't count the South) and then a national party. They put paid to the Whigs and became the new opponent of the Democrats.

Trump is now in the position of being able to run as an Independent (or on his own Party designation) to replace the hopelessly corrupt Republicans.

He is certainly preparing for this eventuality as he is qualifying for the ballot in all 50 states. This is his protection from the GOP rules designed so that only GOP insiders can get the nomination.

With enough time before the election, it is entirely possible that Trump and New Party can field a slate of candidates that will ride into Congress on Trump's coat tails and truly begin the process to Make America Great Again.

Or, the GOP may capitulate to save itself and give Trump a seeming victory in the nomination, but then try to hamstring him after he wins.

Blogger J Melcher December 11, 2015 1:09 PM  

Hey, remember 2010 when Alaskan Joe Miller won the Republican primary to become a candidate for Senate? Who did the GOP leadership line up behind but write-in "independent" Lisa Murkowski?

Remember then too when Christine O'Donnell defeated Mike Castle in the primary to become a Senate candidate? How much RNC support did Co'D get, again?

Remember when Tim Scott primaried and won against the GOP's (KKK's?) Strom Thurmond's son-and-heir Paul Thurmond? Remember how much support the black Southern Republican got from the northern "elites" of the the party in the general?

How 'bout a couple years later when Deb Fisher won a Republican primary in Nebraska the the GOP party elites preferred Democratic retread (but "named" and former Senator and presidential candidate) Bob Kerrey.

Hey, remember David Dewhurst? The guy the Republicans liked better than Ted Cruz, who being defeated ran AGAIN almost immediately for Lt Governor, (being re-defeated, in the primary run-off by a wholly imperfect candidate whose big virtue was the LACK of name and connections)

Then there's Kansas, where the Democrat Taylor WITHDREW FROM THE RACE in a deal with the Republicans supporting a long-shot 4th party challenger, Orman, to help the bi-partisan effort to re-elect incumbent Republican Pat Roberts over the petition-supported Tea Party challenger Milton Wolf.

In general, the Republican party has opposed, rather than supported, any efforts to retard the progress of nepotism, incumbency, and the ordinary citizen's participation in fair, free, and open elections run according to long-established rules.

As far as the debate about brokered conventions is concerned; the GOP has had this in the works since at least 2000. The Party has know for some time that the nations demographics are splintered. They have constantly moved leftward while the core of the party has remained conservative. The problem is that there is no longer enough conservative grassroots to counter the corporate socialists. The GOP will fall simply because things that are not sustainable, don't last.

The party is almost always taken over by the nominee if the nominee wins the presidency. The repubs problem is that boy Bush left the party in the control of his father's cronies, the ones who were running his presidency. Look at how much Obama has shaped the Democratic party since his initial election. The same thing will happen if a non-insider wins the presidency one the repub ticket. The "establishment" really doesn't have many levers of power.

Anonymous Anarchopurplism December 11, 2015 2:58 PM  

Important to remember what the Establishment Republicans did to Ron Paul in 2008. The "procedural" actions done in Kansas, Nevada & Minnesota were completely reprehensible.

I remember hearing that Ron Paul's speech OUTSIDE the MN State Convention had more attendees than inside the actual convention!

Earlier in the process (before congressional district meetings) in my state all the typical McCain/Romney-ites who were 50+ pleased to see many "young people be involved." I went thru the process & was seated as a Congressional meeting delegate, even though the local Ron Paul team was unaware of who I was & I was not on their slate.

However, even though these boomers were "excited to see young people involved," that apparently meant, "vote for our typical, run-of-the-mill candidate" who inspires nobody. They had special meetings with local establishment players in my district, which was basically an interrogation to better understand your loyalties. It was an absolute joke. Any time they'd ask me: "if your favored candidate does not win the nomination, will you vote with the Republican party." I'd laugh & say, "I'm a registered Republican. Will you do the same? Is every candidate on the ballot someone you would support if THEY win the nomination?" Response: platitude, platitude, blah blah blah & move on.

At the Congressional District, out of 5 candidates, 4 of them were loyal & sympathetic to Ron Paul. There was cheering, fist pumps & high-fiving from the Paul camp. A look of utter shock from the cuckservative Boomers, which was: "what is going on?" The only reason the 5th guy did not get voted in as a delegate for the State convention was that he, a redhead, rode the wave of emotion a bit too far. I don't remember what he said & it was not controversial to me, but his tone was way too aggressive for the boomers.

I was traveling during the State Convention. Even though I personally witnessed a portion of the process & seen some of the Establishment BS, I am glad I did not personally experience what happened at my State Convention.

Those cuckservative establishment boomers who change the rules to fit their aims can go back to the jerkstore.

That's fine by me; I'm simply tired of being lied to, and make no mistake the Republican Party stands for nothing that it claims dear: from fiscal responsibility to 2nd amendment, from sanctity of life to Constitutionalism they never push for them, but rather roll over for the 'opposition'.

We gave them 2010 and they betrayed us in 2012; we gave them 2014 and they immediately betrayed us... actually, it was even worse: they were gloating beforehand how they were going to betray us w/ amnesty. -- Here in 2015, the sentiment is thus:
"Trump isn't our candidate. He's our murder weapon. And the GOP is our victim."

Or, as stated here:
""He takes it to Obama and Hillary. He fights!" but what they they really mean is "F- you, Democrats, and f- you, establishment Republicans.""

Simply put, the constituents are tired of being betrayed by those "ostensibly on our side", the patriots are tired of being told "America is terrible", and the just are really tired of the injustice codified in the system and especially those adhering to social justice.

Those are the type of people who are attracted to government and political power.

Or, power corrupts. I can do this...I think I will try it.
Power seekers are wholly carnal. Not a spiritual bone in they body.

So we agree, with caveat

@74: then I guess fascism is a good thing.

Trump said he would be willing to spend a billion dollars to become president and he's only spent a couple hundred thousand so far. What if it's not a bluff? Will the GOP call or fold like Akira Yoshizawa? I think Trump is better at poker than Reince Priebus and company.

Trump at 43% in Georgia and climbing.

Trump + Carson = 50% from that one poll.

i've been saying for over a decade that "The Republican Party needs to get Whigged" due to their obvious corruption and betrayal of their voters.

Heh, Wikilyedia suggests that one of the tenets of fascism is Nationalism.

Maybe but it's the other tenets that are the problem, such as Socialism.

Code Pink protests Trump.

This is why we must never waste precious ammo or treasure protecting these lefties. They aren't worth it and let them reap what they sow.

I'm thinking he's in it to win it. He keeps yappin about being a big winner, how we'll get sick of winning, etc. An ego this big might not want to back down and look like he's backed off those type comments.

Yeah, because as we all know, presidential candidates are known, historically speaking, for their modest egos but go for the gold because of their big hearts. They feel your pain.

@74-Yes, it is. Nationalism was also one of the tenets of Stalinism (the motto was "socialism in one country"). Nationalism gets around.

the way McCain 'won' the nomination and the treatment of the Tea Party by the establishment ... which, looking at the dates, is not quite 10 years.

i know i voted Constitution Party as a protest when McCain was nominee.

the last time i would have possibly cast a ballot for Repub for president *might* have been Shrub's first go round. and that would have been one of those 'lesser evil' votes.
