Never Trump's Hiroo Onoda Brigade

Hiroo Onoda was the last Japanese soldier to surrender following the end of World War II in 1945.

He surrendered on February 20, 1974, in the Philippines.

His name must translate into English as "Never Trump" because some people in this group are diehards who continue their guerrilla tactics to derail the nomination long after Republicans decided to go with Trump.

From The Hill:
Republicans opposed to Donald Trump are plotting a last-ditch effort to deny him their party’s nomination at the convention in Cleveland.
A coalition of delegates, lawyers, rules experts and PACs has formed in what participants say is the most coordinated effort to date to dump Trump from the Republican ticket.
The organizers are confident of success and say they’re being underestimated.
“This is a laser-guided bomb aimed right at the foundation of the Trump campaign,” said Beau Correll, a Virginia delegate and central figure in the opposition movement.
Correll is a lawyer seeking to overcome the party rule that requires delegates who promise to vote for a candidate to keep that promise.

Some seek to remove him as a delegate.

From the Bull Elephant:
Importantly, Mr. Correll recently held a TV interview saying that he will support a 3rd party candidate for President. That is a big problem for Mr. Correll because, as an elected Delegate from Virginia to the national convention, the rules of the Republican Party of Virginia state that he cannot support a candidate in opposition to a Republican nominee. The punishment for publicly stating non-support for the Republican candidate is removal from the party for four years. If he is immediately removed from the Republican party, then he must also be immediately removed as a Delegate from Virginia to the Republican National Convention.
This isn’t personal toward Beau. It’s about politics. And there is recent precedent for this behavior and punishment. In 2011, then-Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, and then-Lt. Governor Bill Bolling were both removed from the Republican party because of their public support for Bill Janis, who was running as an Independent against the Republican candidate for Commonwealth Attorney in Henrico County, VA.
Sounds like Virginia should be sending nothing but Republicans to the Republican National Convention.

  1. Instead of NeverTrump, I prefer calling them out with Sarah Palin's "RATS," RepublicanS Against Trump.

  2. Honest, most of us #NeverTrump folks have never heard of Beau Correll and we are not backing any movement to derail the Trump nomination.

    We are reasoning, committed Conservatives who do not believe this emotion-driven liberal liar. The man has no positive history to turn us any way but away from him.

    So he doesn't get my vote and neither does Hillary - my choice and it is made. Lots of GOP conservatives have come to the same conclusion. Somebody has to honestly assess the Trump opposition and somehow I believed that Don Surber really understood the opposition from the GOP base.

  4. I respect every citizen's right to vote for the person whom they believe will best serve the country, not a party. However, Correll is a delegate and he knew the rules when he accepted the position. If he cannot in good conscience represent the voters of his state and vote for Trump, then the honorable thing for him to do is resign.

  5. Hmm, that'd be "counselling of fraud", so I guess Malebolge, Dante's eighth circle of hell, is indicated for these wunderkind.
