ELDER PATRIOT – With Trump’s candidacy refusing to fade the entire political establishment has been mobilized to defeat him. Why else would Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, and Paul Ryan all take the same position as Hamas when it comes to Donald Trump? They all agree with Hamas that they do not support Donald Trump’s plan for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”
Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan said: “We do not estimate that the current U.S. administration, any administration, will implement these racist suggestions. This is a pathetic attempt to attribute terror exclusively to Muslims.”
It sounds as though this guy has a pipeline to the U.S. Congress where two presidential candidates and the Speaker of the House decided yesterday that they’d rather stand with Hamas than with the American people who overwhelmingly support Trump’s proposal for a moratorium.
Marco Rubio called Trump’s proposal “offensive and outlandish.”
Lindsey Graham said Trump was “a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot.”
Paul Ryan “What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for. And more importantly, it’s not what this country stands for.”
Like America’s establishment politicians, Radwan insisted that, “Islam is a religion of peace, a religion which opposes bloodshed.”
What is left unsaid by everyone? Hamas’ charter calls for the extermination of Jewish people the world over as well as the destruction of Israel. Keep in mind that Hillary Clinton has a long history of supporting Palestinian terrorists dating back to her days of friendship with Yasser Arafat and his wife Suha. Even today, Hillary’s closest advisor and confidant is Huma Abedin who has strong roots to Islamic terror organizations. Hillary’s base is solidly behind her on this issue already but it is not large enough to carry her to the presidency.
So why would Rubio, Graham, Ryan and so many other career politicians stake-out a position in line with Hamas and that is so unpopular with more than two-thirds of the Americans they ostensibly represent? The answer is because it aligns them more closely with Mrs. Clinton.
They have come to realize that Trump’s campaign for president is not likely to be derailed and they are watching their donors switching their support to the other big-government globalist in the race, Hillary Clinton. And, these donors are demanding that the Republican establishment, who they put in place and own, do everything in their power to help get her elected.
Any Republican voters who can be dissuaded from supporting Trump in the general election will either be forced to vote for Hillary or not vote at all. Both choices for wobbly Republican voters accrue to Mrs. Clinton’s benefit.
