On April 26, 2016 Breitbart published Brent Bozell's open letter asking Sarah Palin, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee, Phyllis Schlafly and other conservatives to withdraw their endorsements of Donald Trump.
Mr. Bozell, you ask "Does Donald Trump mean a word he says?"
Well, Mr. Bozell, we already know that the Republican Party doesn't mean a word that it says.
For example, prior to the 2014 mid-term elections, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, speaking about Barack Obama's executive amnesty, said: "We will do everything we can to make sure it doesn't happen: Defunding, going to court, injunction. You name it. It's wrong. It's illegal. And for so many reasons, and just the basic fabric of this country, we can't allow it to happen and we won't let it happen. I don't know how to be any stronger than that. I'm telling you, everything we can do to stop it we will."
After the 2014 election, when voters gave his party control of Congress, the Republicans "rewarded" their constituents by enthusiastically facilitating the funding and implementation of Obama's "illegal" executive amnesty.
According an article in the left-wing outlet Politico and reported by Breitbart, Republican House Speaker John Boehner held secret negotiations with Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, leading up to his decision to flip-flop and fund Obama's executive amnesty; including a pre-hashed out deal to use the hoopla around Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's March 3, 2015 address to Congress over Iran's nuclear ambitions as political cover to sneak in the extraordinarily controversial vote.
As part of this effort, the former chiefs of staff to House Speaker John Boehner and Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, through a group called the American Action Network, spent $400,000 for advertisements aimed at pressuring House conservatives to support Obama's executive amnesty and fund it in its entirety through the end of the fiscal year.
On the same day as Netanyahu's speech, the Republican-led House of Representatives caved to the demands of Democrats and passed a "clean" Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill by 257-167 with a majority of Democratic votes. Seventy-five Republicans voted to pass the clean bill, 167 voted against passage. The measure provided full funding of the DHS through September 30th, the end of the federal fiscal year, leaving Obama's executive amnesty untouched.
In essence, the seventy-five Republicans, who joined all House Democrats to fund Obama's executive amnesty, aided and abetted the shredding of the Constitution by giving Obama the funding and future permission to rewrite federal law as he sees fit.
And what about Ted Cruz, the candidate you endorsed, Mr. Bozell?
Is it not Ted Cruz, who has joined the Republican establishment to thwart the will of the American people by back-room manipulation of the electoral process? Is that what you endorse, Mr. Bozell?
Was it not Ted Cruz, the candidate you endorsed, who voted in favor of the Corker/Cardin Amendment, which essentially "pre-approved" the Iran nuclear deal by turning the treaty provision of the Constitution on its head, changing ratification from the constitutionally-mandated 67-vote for approval to a 67-vote for denial?
Was it not Ted Cruz, the candidate you endorsed, who penned a Wall Street Journal op-ed with House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) endorsing Obama's trade agenda -describing the TPP as an "historic" agreement that "would mean greater access to a billion customers for American manufacturers, farmers and ranchers?"
Like many in the Washington DC chattering class, Mr. Bozell, you just don't get it.
The November 2014 election was not an endorsement of the Republican Par... of Obama's dramatic expansion of government power. The voters demanded that Congress stop his fundamental transformation of America, restoring the Constitutional balance of power and ending the Executive Branch abuses against the citizenry. Yet, the Republican leadership and its toadies in Congress undercut that vote and became complicit in the enactment of Obama's unconstitutional policies.
And you speak about "sanity," Mr. Bozell? To paraphrase Albert Einstein, again trusting the Republican establishment and expecting different results would be insane.
Many Americans now believe that we are no longer citizens of a republic, but subjects of a reigning oligarchy composed of a self-absorbed permanent political class, which services the interests of wealthy financiers at the expense of the wider population. They maintain their authority by an ever-expanding and increasingly intrusive government and use a compliant media to manipulate public perception and opinion in order to maintain the illusion of democracy.
The two most important issues of the 2016 election are non-partisan.
(1) The federal government and the media are, as institutions, hopelessly corrupt.
(2) The United States has elections, but we no longer have representative government.
None of the problems facing the country can be solved effectively without first confronting those two issues. Any candidate addressing them directly will capture the majority of voters on both sides of the political center.
But let's be honest for a moment, Mr. Bozell. It is really not Donald Trump's words that the establishment fears, and it is not only the loss of political power, but they fear the revelations of past government conduct that might emerge, and the potential for investigation and prosecution.
Perhaps it is you, Mr. Bozell, who should do the "courageous thing," and stand with the American people and not with the corrupt political-media establishment.

Good, now I wish he would clarify some other positions like this one and the national security issue posted on YouTube.
I can share, and perhaps you already know....he wants and will work hard to get us out of the UN; few realize it but this is perhaps the most important issue we have to solve as a nation..it not only saves us millions but it takes away the UN overstepping its boundaries and forcing refugees and illegals/Muzzies too on us.
The bill to get out of the UN has been in the Senate for four years is what I have read; more recently there is supposed to be like 30 plus senators that are co-sponsoring this law and McConnell will not bring it to the floor.
I also have read that the Clintons and the Obamas will be brought to trial...pray for this candidate and his family...the Establishment have a "hit" order out on him and now the Unions are going to try their hand at getting rid of him...
I have no problem with what Trump is proposing in defense of the 2nd Amendment and the gun haters can howl all they want, they are done, in my opinion.
Just got this on the Drudge Report;
They're not happy but they are beginning to wake up the the music.
Thank you, Colonel Sellin. Your articles always set brush fires in the Patriot's soul.
Fantastic Article, Mr. Sellin, you nailed it right on the Head and that is exactly why Trump is so popular, the Elites hate it, but I hope they are fixing to get their Head handed to them before it is all over..... Keep up the good analysis, Sir. Hopefully, I will see you alive and well on the battlefield and My God protect you sir, I would hate for something bad to happen to you or any other patriots in this Great Experiment, called "America".
As above; but we know that Americans are targeted by the drones with the queer ilk in DC and it will get worse; some are saying Martial Law if Trump gets the nomination! How awful this POS is...he should be tried for treason and attempted sedition and yet, nothing is done with this sub-human.
Well you had better be willing to indict the entire Congress, because they wrote and passed the NDAA and BO signed it into Law. And when they execute Martial Law, and the UN is running around the country killing everybody on the "Red List" and if you don't believe anybody from the Patriots, the Veterans and any other Active Military that don't support Martial Law are NOT on the red list, you are dreaming. EVERYBODY that is against this GOVERNMENT, THE UN AND THE NWO are on this listing and will be the first ones killed by executive order of our USURPER IN THE WHITE HOUSE...
Actually you had better be ready to "Kill", because if you are not ready, then this government will have no tears for you. When BO gets removed, we must take the D.C. out for a cleaning, because that is what it is going to take.
I Gotta put a "LIKE" button on this thing.,,, Thanks Clois.
Rooster, so you like my brutal honesty?, this is my reality and I am NOT going down without the fight of my lifetime. I love my freedoms, my God given rights and no man or Government will infringe on those rights and I will protect those freedoms at the cost of my life, if necessary, and I will be happy to defend the rights of all against all enemies foreign and domestic, so help me God.
I am really, really pleased that someone took Brent Bozell on; I have written him several times of his errors and how he writes, judges, etc.,...I continue to unsubscribe from anything that he has anything to do with.
It is these, that write such garbage, should not be posting on any site, writing any letters to anyone because they are not only ignorant, they are biased..and, as I have found out, most of these organizations and even some of the House of Reps. support a candidate that is not even legal...and so it goes with Bozell.
If Trump wins the nomination and then the general election, we will still be left with approximately the same Congress. Here in Texas the incumbents all won their primary re-elections positions. (no opposition), That means I have two choices; either vote for the Republican incumbent, (looser dead beat), or a no-vote, which will insure the Dem a win.
That will be about the same all across the country. So - if we can re-elect the Republican Congress, then we can push those people up against a wall - put a gun to their heads, and make it absolutely clear that from now they work for US. NOT Reince Priebus and company. One way or another. Not second options.
(Just thinking out loud).
