Panicked Establishment GOP Completely Lined Up Against Their Front-Runner

Today is a rather large day in American politics.   As many of us predicted, Hillary Clinton’s email troubles, her as-yet unexplained role in the Benghazi massacre, and her nearly unparalleled history of sometimes-video-recorded prevarication will in no way impede her obtaining the Democratic Party’s nomination for the office once held by her husband. 

She doesn’t need to be any kind of truth-teller.  Like the forged computer-generated Obama birth certificate and the befuddling Connecticut Social Security number that the current President has used both with impunity, and without the slightest media interest in examination, it just doesn’t matter that Mrs. Clinton has been caught in a few whoppers.  Forget bona fides and truth.  You know the razzamatazz.  This is politics.  It doesn’t matter.

I guarantee you that if someone could get a credible rumor started that there’s something really strange about Donald Trump’s birth certificate and Social Security number, the entire press corps would pick it up and run with it to the end of the Earth.  But, I digress.

Fine.  Nominate Mrs. Clinton.  Let’s vote.

On the other side of the aisle, the GOP is in an absolute white-faced, sweaty-brow frenzy to find a way to stop its current front-runner, Mr. Donald Trump.  He has managed to stay atop the polls for months on end as conservative America’s favorite to save the country from the extreme left, from our own migrant invasion from the south, and from the jihad.  This phenomenon of trying to take out the GOP leader is nothing new.  The establishment GOP did not want Ronald Reagan – ever.  He was too extreme in his pro-American views and would surely lead us into a nuclear war.

Now the former head of the national GOP, Mel Martinez (a Bush man), joins the pile of Trump attackers.  Over at, Cheryl Chumley has published a story wherein good old Mel says he’d pick Joe Biden before he’d vote for Donald Trump:

Former Republican National Committee chairman Mel Martinez, the first Hispanic to serve in that capacity, said he’d vote for pretty much anybody other than front-runner Donald Trump for president, even if that meant crossing party lines and picking a Democrat.

“I would not vote for Trump, clearly,” he said, in a Wall Street Journal piece. “If there is any, any, any other choice, a living, breathing person with a pulse, I would be there.”…

…Martinez threw his weight behind Sen. Marco Rubio shortly after former governor Jeb Bush dropped his bid. To the Wall Street Journal, he accused Trump of running a race to the Republican nomination that was “kind of crooked,” he said…

Imagine that.  Mel Martinez threw his support behind Marco Rubio.  The same Marco Rubio who has repeatedly tried to pass an amnesty for illegal aliens disguised under the nice comfy rhetoric of “comprehensive immigration reform”, and then reversed course to tell us how his Gang of Eight bill would never pass – after the American public set the D.C. telephone lines afire and stopped that bill dead in its tracks.  If you can listen to Marco Rubio defend his shifting stances on amnesty and not get dizzy, you’re smarter than I am.

Read all of Chumley’s report.

And we shall calmly await the Super Tuesday voting results to see where Mr. Trump stands after the smoke clears.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

    John, What I find interesting is that when this process began the GOP basically forced Trump into saying he would not run as an independent. Now that he is by far the strongest person to gain the nomination, the GOP is going bonkers. I am a conservative, I will vote for Mr. Trump if nominated, but what is most bothersome, is that our GOP leaders all refer to President Reagan as the best, none of them have his strength of character. The party is in huge trouble.

      Yes, Mitch. You’re right on all counts here. The same GOP which demanded unconditional loyalty from Trump, in writing, is now pulling the rug from beneath his feet. Or so they think they are. I don’t think it’s going to work. It is interesting, and coincidental, that the establishment GOP did not want Reagan, either. Thank you again for taking the time to leave your thoughts here on the site. So much appreciated. JW
