The victory of Donald Trump has provided a God-sent opportunity to reverse the years of willful damage done our nation by Barack Hussein Obama, the most corrupt, treacherous and treasonous occupant of the White House in our near 240 existence.

Will Kasich and Cruz willingly play the GOPe’s “Golden Retriever” to help steal Trump’s nomination?
we use the “magic number” formula to describe a team’s chances to either clinch
a pennant or be eliminated. Ted Cruz has a “magic” elimination number.
When either Donald Trump or John Kasich win a combination of 184 delegates,
Cruz’s mathematical chance to win the nomination with 1,237 delegates is
gone. Since the number of available delegates left to be won is a zero
sum game; every delegate not won by Cruz moves him closer to his “magic” number
Cruz sweeps Wisconsin, which is not a sure thing because Trump is either
leading or close, Cruz’s magic number will all but bottom out after the April
19th Northeast Super Tuesday which will put 267 delegates up for
grabs. Even if Kasich can cut into Trump’s Northeastern hold, it is all
but impossible to make a case that Cruz wins enough delegates to hold off the
crash of his magic number.
Kasich has no magic number. His campaign was over the day he announced.
Nevertheless, both can act as agents of Mitt Romney’s GOPe and continue to try
to keep delegates out of Trump’s column.
April 19th there will be only one reason to vote for either Cruz or
Kasich and that will be to force a disastrous, contested convention in July.
That would help only Mitt Romney or whomever he deigns to lay hands on to help
him steal the nomination. The voters will recognize this because they are
smarter than the “experts” think they are. In the remaining primaries, Trump
will successfully frame the issue as Trump vs a Contested Convention. For it’s a safe bet that such a convention
will be manipulated by the GOPe to nominate another polite, PC loser like
actively campaigns after he is eliminated, Cruz will play the part of Romney’s
Golden Retriever, poised to scamper out into the swamp to scoop up the
nomination, give it to Romney, take a treat and sit back down.
think that Ted Cruz will do this; but I think John Kasich would. The problem
for both of them is that neither will be given the nomination he helps to
steal. They will have to be content with a few treats.
