(Before It's News)

Trump looks unstoppable, the likely Republican nominee for president. The campaign to undermine him is perhaps unprecedented in US politics. Party power brokers want their leading candidate prevented from being nominated this July, going all-out to stop him. In mid-January, a neocon infested Our Principles super PAC was established – former Mitt Romney aide Katie Packer its director. She’s a founding member of Burning Glass, an Alexandria, VA-based Republican consulting firm. Days after its establishment, Our Principles (OP), sent out mailers opposing Trump’s candidacy. It’s running a national media campaign against him – as of January 29, spending over $1.5 million. It’s unknown how much it’s raised in donations, likely considerable amounts still forthcoming, given the party’s rage to block Trump by any means, fair or foul. Power brokers want one of their own representing them in November, a reliable neocon like Cruz or Rubio, concerned Trump may have ideas of his own, out-of-step with their agenda, despite nothing suggesting he won’t continue dirty business as usual. A new OP ad calls Trump “unelectable,” bashing him relentlessly, vilifying him with a barrage of pejoratives. It features former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke endorsing him, saying “I do support his candidacy, and I support voting for him.” Trump denies “know(ing) anything about Duke…anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists.” A separate OP ad titled “Scam” was released Wednesday, aired nationally, calling Trump’s now closed university a fraudulent operation, the latest dirty trick used against him. Expect lots more ahead, big money mobilized to bash him. Republican power brokers call him a gift to Hillary Clinton – enabling her to run against him if nominated, needing no other agenda. A previous article said bashing Trump makes him stronger. A separate article said the only sure ways to beat him are by assassination or electoral rigging, both longstanding US traditions. It’s a long time from now to July nominating conventions and November’s national elections. Party efforts to undermine Trump leave him vulnerable to long knives out to get him. If he survives their best efforts and wins in November, he’ll have accomplished perhaps the most remarkable political achievement in US history – defying long odds against him at the start of last year’s political season, outwitting, outfoxing, and outmaneuvering party bosses determined to stop him. Love or hate him, he proved a phenomenon to be reckoned with, party power brokers so far unable to derail his relentless drive to be nominated and elected America’s 45th president.
