For Donald Trump, the 2016 presidential election hangs in the balance at midnight 15 March in Florida. Trump must win Florida or he will almost certainly not have enough delegates to win a first ballot nomination at the convention. This would guarantee the end of his candidacy. Donald Trump’s supporters, across the state, are going to have to wage a monumental battle to prevent defeat by, as Pat Buchanan warns, “The Oligarchs’ Super-Pac Anti-Trump Savagery.”
Fully 116 members of the GOP’s national security community, many of them veterans of Bush administrations, have signed an open letter threatening that, if Trump is nominated, they will all desert, and some will defect – to Hillary Clinton!…
Robert Kagan, wailed in the Washington Post, “The only choice will be to vote for Hillary Clinton.”
Are they serious?
Victory for Clinton would mean her remaking the Supreme Court, killing all chances that Roe v. Wade could be overturned, or that we could get another justice like Antonin Scalia before 2021.
What are these renegades and turncoats so anguished about?
Trump calls the Iraq War many of them championed an historic blunder.
Can millionaires and billionaires who back open borders, mass immigration, globalization and the disappearance of nation states into transnational collectives overwhelm with their millions spent in ads the patriotic movements that arose this year to the wonderment of America and the world?
