Publisher’s note: Sybele Capezzutti is at once your average woman next door and extraordinary. A solid Christian and Patriot in her adopted home of America, she is also a hardworking mother of an amazing son, and she has something to say. The other day, this was bugging her liver, so she put some thoughts together and had the following to share.
Sybele Capezzutti: My inquiring mind wanted to know who is behind the "nevertrump" campaign so it went searching and this is what it found:
The "nevertrump" campaign was launched by a super PAC created with the sole purpose of keeping Trump from being the GOP nominee, and if for any reason they fail, their goal is to prevent him from being elected the next President.
Established on January 14, 2016, "Our Principles PAC" was created by Katie Packer as an anti-Donald Trump super PAC. Packer was Mitt Romney's deputy campaign manager in 2012. Packer is also a founding member of Burning Glass, an Alexandria-based Republican consulting firm. According to FEC documents, Jamie Jodoin is listed as the treasurer and custodian of records. Jodoin is a political accounting specialist for the Tampa-based accounting firm, Robert Watkins & Company.
In March 2016, Tim Miller, former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush's spokesman, was hired by Our Principles as the super PAC's communications director.
Politico reported that Our Principles leadership, Brian Baker and Katie Packer, and its 168 members, all delegates at the Republican National Convention in July 2016, will make an argument against Donald Trump's possible nomination before Republican National Committee officials during their spring meeting.
Katie Packer is the brain behind the TV campaign ad with quotes from women that portrays Trump as sexist, these same ads are being used by democrats.
The super PAC's top donor is the owner of the Chicago Cubs, the top 5 donors are all hedge fund and capital investment firms. I think it's safe to say that this is an establishment Super PAC.
No doubt they've been successful in their campaign, the question is....what is their real motivator?
Granted that Trump has given them plenty of material to be spun and twisted, please forgive me if I tend to not trust anything created by establishment pundits....mainly when it comes with a price tag of $75 million to stop someone after they've done nothing during the last 7 years.
Somehow it just doesn't seem sincere to me.Add a comment
