Don Surber on the GOP Search for the Big Friendly STOP TRUMP Button

JD Cahill: You call the tune you pay the piper. Mean­ing if you don’t like the treat­ment don’t rob the banks

Cahill US Mar­shal 1973

Spock: If we had not crossed the Neu­tral Zone, on your order, you would not now need our opin­ions to sup­port a deci­sion which should never have had to be made.

Star Trek The Enter­prise Inci­dent 1968

In the Doc­tor Who episode Jour­ney to the Cen­tre of the TARDIS (my review here) The Doc­tor shuts down the TARDIS to basic mode to Clara can try to fly it and as you might guess trou­ble follows:

11th Doc­tor: Mag­netic hobble-​field. We’re fly­ing right into it. Clara, stay by me.
Clara: Please tell me there’s a but­ton you can press to fix this.
11th Doc­tor: Oh, yes. Big friendly button.

The TARDIS ends up wrecked and the Doc­tor & Clara (after a fas­ci­nat­ing and adven­ture filled jour­ney to the Cen­tre of the TARDIS & beyond) dis­cover the only solu­tion to the prob­lem is to re-​write time.

11th Doc­tor: The time rift. Recent past, pos­si­ble future.
Clara: What are you going to do?
11th Doc­tor: Rewrite today, I hope. [He etches the word “Big Friendly But­ton” on the grenade like device] I’ve thrown this through the rift before. I need to make sure this time. Going to take it in there myself. There might be a cer­tain amount of yelling.
Clara: It’s going to hurt?
11th Doc­tor: Things that end your life often do that.

As you might guess The Doc­tor man­ages to get the grenade through and his past coun­ter­part hits the Big Friendly But­ton and every­thing is alright.

This is sig­nif­i­cant because Don Surber with­out ref­er­enc­ing this Doc­tor Who episode is point­ing out that for all the Chest Thump­ing by the GOP now the rea­son Don­ald Trump is poised to win the GOP nom­i­na­tion is due to the action or rather inac­tion of the GOP over the last two years

In the 2014 elec­tion, Repub­li­can vot­ers gave their party 247 seats in the House — the most in a cen­tury! A cen­tury — and a 5446 major­ity in the Sen­ate. West Vir­ginia elected its first Repub­li­can U.S. sen­a­tor in 56 years.

And what did the Repub­li­can rank-​and-​file get out of the deal?

Not a damn thing.

They failed to fight to stop com­mon core, they failed to fight to defund and stop oba­macare, they failed to push the Admin­is­tra­tion to see the real­ity that Radial Islam was and actively pushed for the Gang of Eight amnesty bill which was only stopped by the efforts of peo­ple like Ted Cruz.

as I wrote back in 2013 the Amer­i­can Peo­ple take a long time to reach their break­ing point but when they finally do this hap­pens:

peo­ple are going to start con­clud­ing this:

The gov­ern­ment of The United States is not legitimate.

Act accord­ingly.

The Don­ald Trump phe­nom is the repub­li­can, inde­pen­dent and Rea­gan Democ­rats scream­ing “That’s all I can stands, I can’t stands no more.

And as Don rightly notes the only solu­tion to the GOP is to rewrite history:

So now the party is in a panic on how to stop Trump.

Here is the only way: Build a Time Machine and go back to Jan­u­ary 3, 2015, when this Con­gress began. And then do all the things your con­stituents want: Defund Planned Par­ent­hood, Repeal Oba­macare, Block The Import-​Export Bank, Make The Iran­ian Deal Require Rat­i­fi­ca­tion By Two-​Thirds Of The Senate…

Or put sim­ply the GOP should have got­ten behind Ted Cruz when he was fight­ing against all these things over the last four years instead of treat­ing him like a pariah cre­at­ing the nar­ra­tive that the MSM hap­pily ran with.

Alas for the GOP in a few days when the results of Super Tues­day are being reported and Jake Tap­per is inter­view­ing Reince Priebus or any of the estab­lish­ment GOP can­di­dates, pun­dits or even mem­bers of con­gress it’s highly unlikely that they will see a lit­tle device roll over to their seat bear­ing the words Big Friendly But­ton that will, with just a push, roll back time to Jan 4th 2015 and give the GOP a chance to do it all over.

Frankly I’m not sure they’d push that big friendly but­ton any­way.

For the first time since I lost my job an Stacy McCain lost his Twit­ter right we’ve had a set­back in our ques­tion for $61 to make a liv­ing back here at the blog. Yes­ter­day DaTip­Jar was com­pletely and utterly silent. So as we find our­selves seek­ing a new $61 today our deficit for the year climbs back to 21 days and $1335 dollars

In fair­ness my email blast went out late do to cov­er­ing the Gov­er­nor (post later today) an help­ing my son move so I didn’t spend the day pro­mot­ing the blog, fur­ther­more it was sat­ur­day and I sus­pect that our traf­fic con­sisted of our core read­ers who take a peek before going an enjoy­ing the weekend.

yet if less than 1% of yesterday’s read­ers kicked in $15 each we would have made out goal for the day with ease.

Again I say to those who have kicked in thank you so much, for those who can’t afford it, don’t worry about it but I do ask you to pro­mote the site.

To those both able and inclined I’d really appre­ci­ate it if you’d help us close that gap by hit­ting DaTipJar.

Star Trek The Enterprise Incident 1968

In the Doctor Who episode Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS (my review here) The Doctor shuts down the TARDIS to basic mode to Clara can try to fly it and as you might guess trouble follows:

11th Doctor: Magnetic hobble-field. We’re flying right into it. Clara, stay by me.
Clara: Please tell me there’s a button you can press to fix this.
11th Doctor: Oh, yes. Big friendly button.

The TARDIS ends up wrecked and the Doctor & Clara (after a fascinating and adventure filled journey to the Centre of the TARDIS & beyond) discover the only solution to the problem is to re-write time.

11th Doctor: The time rift. Recent past, possible future.
Clara: What are you going to do?
11th Doctor: Rewrite today, I hope. [He etches the word “Big Friendly Button” on the grenade like device] I’ve thrown this through the rift before. I need to make sure this time. Going to take it in there myself. There might be a certain amount of yelling.
Clara: It’s going to hurt?
11th Doctor: Things that end your life often do that.

As you might guess The Doctor manages to get the grenade through and his past counterpart hits the Big Friendly Button and everything is alright.

This is significant because Don Surber without referencing this Doctor Who episode is pointing out that for all the Chest Thumping by the GOP now the reason Donald Trump is poised to win the GOP nomination is due to the action or rather inaction of the GOP over the last two years

In the 2014 election, Republican voters gave their party 247 seats in the House — the most in a century! A century — and a 54-46 majority in the Senate. West Virginia elected its first Republican U.S. senator in 56 years.

And what did the Republican rank-and-file get out of the deal?

Not a damn thing.

They failed to fight to stop common core, they failed to fight to defund and stop obamacare, they failed to push the Administration to see the reality that Radial Islam was and actively pushed for the Gang of Eight amnesty bill which was only stopped by the efforts of people like Ted Cruz.

as I wrote back in 2013 the American People take a long time to reach their breaking point but when they finally do this happens:

people are going to start concluding this:

The government of The United States is not legitimate.

Act accordingly.

The Donald Trump phenom is the republican, independent and Reagan Democrats screaming  “That’s all I can stands, I can’t stands no more.

And as Don rightly notes the only solution to the GOP is to rewrite history:

So now the party is in a panic on how to stop Trump.

Here is the only way: Build a Time Machine and go back to January 3, 2015, when this Congress began. And then do all the things your constituents want: Defund Planned Parenthood, Repeal Obamacare, Block The Import-Export Bank, Make The Iranian Deal Require Ratification By Two-Thirds Of The Senate…

Or put simply the GOP should have gotten behind Ted Cruz when he was fighting against all these things over the last four years instead of treating him like a pariah creating the narrative that the MSM happily ran with.

Alas for the GOP in a few days when the results of Super Tuesday are being reported and Jake Tapper is interviewing Reince Priebus  or any of the establishment GOP candidates, pundits or even members of congress it’s highly unlikely that they will see a little device roll over to their seat bearing the words Big Friendly Button that will,  with just a push,  roll back time to Jan 4th 2015 and give the GOP a chance to do it all over.

Frankly I’m not sure they’d push that big friendly button anyway.
