(Liberty Bell) – Well, we all knew, back in 2016, that former Forida Gov. Jeb Bush was a RINO, or Republican In Name Only, having clearly abandoned many of the most important values and principles of the conservative movement in order to become a more milquetoast kind of candidate and hopefully continue the legacy of the Bush family by becoming the third to sit in the Oval Office.
Bush was humiliated during that race numerous times by then candidate Donald Trump, who basically obliterated his campaign by exposing Bush for the low-energy compromiser he truly is.
You’d think that anyone associated with such a massive failure of a political campaign would hang it up after such a crushing defeat, but not the “Republican Voters Against Trump” organization. No, they are determined to ensure that Trump does not receive a second term.
In fact, these individuals are now working to ensure that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris pull off a major victory this November.
The group “Republican Voters Against Trump,” funded by Never Trump’s Bill Kristol, Sarah Longwell, and Tim Miller, is spearheading an initiative to flip Florida blue this election cycle. The group has tapped former Bush consultants Mike Murphy and David Hill to help elect Biden.
The Miami Herald reports:
A group of Republicans who want to rid their party of President Donald Trump is making a hefty investment to turn Florida blue.
And they have help from one of ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s former top political strategists.
Officials with Republican Voters Against Trump, a national super PAC, said Monday they would begin a campaign aimed at persuading politically moderate Floridians to back Joe Biden, hopeful that the support of those voters can swing the battleground state — and possibly the presidency — toward the Democratic presidential candidate this fall.
The former Bush consultants and Never Trump group have branded the effort “Project Orange Crush,” spending between $8 million to $10 million in the next couple of months on advertising targeted to moderate Republican voters and swing voters.
“Our plan is to surgically target the key 450,000 Independents and soft Republicans who will decide the election,” a memo obtained by the Herald reads.
These former Bush consultants aren’t the only traitors in the conservative movement to jump ship and try and elect Biden and Harris to the Oval Office. There are hundreds of former staffers for Mitt Romney, John McCain, and George W. Bush who have signed initiatives dedicated to ousting the president come November 3rd.
Apparently, the fact that Biden and Harris are raging socialists who also believe it acceptable to murder children up to the point of birth and even beyond isn’t much of a moral issue to consider in choosing a president for the folks involved in these “initiatives.”
That, to me, is far more disturbing than anything Trump has said or done while in office, which, frankly, hasn’t been that bad. Most of what he has said that is controversial is just him speaking his mind plainly, something that really seems to bother polished, professional politicians.
Also involved are former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials, Miles Taylor and Elizabeth Neumann, who both worked for former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in the Trump administration. Breitbart News first named the two officials as opponents of the president in an exclusive report on the agency’s personnel in May 2019.
The Republican establishment, based almost exclusively in Washington, DC, and made up of consultants, donors, and political operatives, has been opposed to Trump’s economic nationalist agenda since the 2015 GOP presidential primary when they unsuccessfully attempted to stop him.
These folks have made this election personal. It’s clear they, on an individual level, hate Trump and are willing to damage the country in order to exact their vengeance upon him for some perceived slight they feel he has made against them.
It’s easy for folks with no backbone to sell out their core values, but for the rest of us, it’s a betrayal that will not ever be forgotten.
