Secret Anti-Trump Billionaire REVEALED

Secret Anti-Trump Billionaire REVEALED

The PAC targeting Donald Trump is being funded almost single handedly by a billionaire who is no fan of “The Donald.”

They aren’t doing too well: Trump has racked up historic victories in New Hampshire and South Carolina after nearly winning in Iowa. No one has ever lost the nomination after winning both states…

According to The Hill:

“A single billionaire provided the lion’s share of the money to the main Republican super-PAC set up to destroy Donald Trump

Marlene Ricketts, the matriarch of the Ricketts family that owns the Chicago Cubs baseball team, contributed $3 million to the anti-Trump super-PAC “Our Principles PAC,” which is being run by former Mitt Romney adviser Katie Packer.

The super-PAC has spent more than $4 million running attack ads against the GOP front-runner in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina. It is the only serious anti-Trump group to date, in a campaign cycle where Republicans have been reluctant to take on their front-runner.

Until now, the identities of the donors funding Our Principles PAC had been kept secret, fueling the rumor mill in Washington. But the Federal Election Commission reveals that almost all the money came from Ricketts. The donor’s identity was first reported by The New York Times.”

  1. So more evil stuff from Billionaires to take down Trump so their golden boy Rubio will win..and she is affiliated with Mitt Romney…who is Mormon…Rubio became a baptized Mormon at one time in his life…then changed to Catholic…Isn’t it time to vote for someone who isn’t the establishment? Trump should be the choice..are you sick and tired of the politicians who do nothing for us but only do what their donors want them to do? I am..NO MORE POLITICIANS.

    • Thank you for your bigotry. The world certainly doesn’t have enough of your ignorance. Because everyone recognizes that being “Mormon” is somehow something that is inherently bad and should be avoided. You are obviously aware of some sinister issue that we need to understand. Please inform us with your knowledge .

      • What ignorance? It is a stretch to say that something was said about Mormons being bad. The main point was no more politicians.

      • One such issue is the Mormon ‘sealing’ of names handed in by members – numerous Jewish people who died in the Nazi death camps have been ‘sealed’ thus, and are now counted as members of the world-wide M. church. (Even Anne Frank was, even Eli Wiesel’s mother was.) The Ms have undertaken to stop this (but still claim themselves as the fastest-growing church in the world), but instead have simply closed their registers to ordinary people. So, for all I know, my staunchly Calvinist grandmother (we are not Jewish, but the Ms need only a name – the scandal only came out because of the Jewish names they seal) is a ‘sealed’ m.

        • You are wrong about sealing as it does not make anyone a member. It is an ordinance done for those that have passed to be able to choose in the afterlife if they want to be together as a family. I understand you may feel this is weird , but it has no effect on anyone in this life but gives opportunity to those that have passed. If you wanted to be educated rather than believe lies and falsehoods I suggest you ask any member of the Church of Jessica Christmas of Latter-day Saints to give you this information so you are not offended or wrongly accusatory .

        • Reply to Rich Hakes. Does this mean that my grandmother may be (supposing she’s been ‘sealed’ by a M. [Please remember that I cannot check as the M registers have been ‘sealed’ to ordinary inquirers]) part of a different family in the afterlife, even though she herself and no member of her family, even knows about her being ‘sealed’? Where does this doctrine of choosing one’s family in the afterlife come from? And people have been very badly hurt by finding out that beloved family members (who’d never even heard of the Ms) have been ‘sealed’ by the Ms. The matter of Ms having ‘sealed’ people who would never have consented (had they been alive, or had their descendants been aware) is very hurtful to non-Ms, esp. to the descendants of thousands of Jews killed by the nazis. Perhaps you belong to a branch that does not do this? There was a time when the Ms promised to stop this habit, but with their registers being ‘sealed’ one can no longer check. Perhaps your branch/local church does honour this promise, in which case you and I have no dispute.

    • Trumps only beholden to himself and us, Rubio is beholden to the Ricketts, corruption abound. Rubio is a rube, a hypocrite and a stinking fraud when it comes to true conservatism. He got in bed with the devil when McConnell, Graham, McCain and then Boehner, convinced him it was the only way he would ever hold the power of the Presidency. He’s just another corrupt, establishment piece of human debris!

      • Rubio IS NOT Presidential Material. Floridians sure aren’t crazy about him. Check his bad deals in Florida for yourself. Baby Obobo.

  2. I’m sick of all these rich people trying to buy the election. There needs to be a cap on what a person can spend on trying to get elected to a public job and how much any one person can contribute.

    • At least Donald is using his own money and is beholden only to the voters. Even those candidates who take pride in small donations from many people confuse the issue by still spending unnecessarily large amounts that could be used for other good uses.

  3. #dumptrump he is a chump. Thank you Mrs. Ricketts for supporting the oust of the Trumpster. I am a Cruz supporter. Bring back the constitution as it was written by our founding fathers.

    • Attaboy wave the flag for another person not born in America. Ovomit has been great in your eyes. Trump 2016 the real American

      • Sgt. York, please don’t ASSume I am a supporter of that piece of shit living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Cruz wouldn’t have been able to run for public office if he were not a citizen.

        • Christina, he can run but it is not proven that he is eligible to be president. I saw a letter that Cruz wrote a year or so ago in which he stated that he was not eligible. I don’t think Obama was really eligible but he got through with fake birth certificate. I hope you will reconsider voting for Trump as he truly wants to work for us and his children. He is not owned by the establishment, big business, George Soros, The Koch Brothers, Goldman Sacs or the Media. Cruz has excepted millions and millions of dollars for his campaign and is owned lock, stock and barrel.

          • Jane Lewis, thank you for your thoughtful, feedback. It is so refleshing to get a response that is different than mine without the nasty attacks, words etc. I will keep an open mind to each of the candidates, because in the long run we must succeed in getting a conservative in the White House and Congress to retain the freedoms that our country was founded upon. I will need to support whomever is running against Hillary or Bernie. We MUST unite and reclaim the constitution, secure the border, restore the economy, abolish Obamacare, abolish the IRS, tax import items to generate revenue and discourage businesses from leaving the USA. Last but certainly not the least of these is the right to life for all from conception to natural death.

    • Indeed please do that. In which case Ted Cruz is not eligible to run for president. He is NOT a natural born citizen. And due respect for our CONSTITUTION is natural and an automatic reaction for those that defend it.

    • !

      CHRISTINA YOU REALLY NEED TO PULL YOUR HEAD OUT SO YOU CAN BREATH AND LOOK DEEPER INTO THE LYING DECEIVING CROOKED CORRUPT DESTRUCTIVE FAKE PRO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION PRO TERRORIST REFUGEE MUZZIE /. HE IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED !! A LEADER IN THE GANG OF 8 DESTRUCTION OF OUR COUNTRY NEXT YOU WILL PROBABLY ENDORSE KILLER HILLARY

      • I am glad this is a free country where I can choose who I want to vote for. So you can think my head is in the sand and I can feel the same about all of you too. We can agree to disagree.

        p.s. I am not a Marco Rubio supporter. He was part of the gang of 8.

          • I I’m not sure how Marco got involved in the gang of eight. If it came down to Rubio and Trump I would vote Rubio first. I just don’t feel Trump is sincere about his conservative values. I just get a feeling he would be a continuation of the Obama type oppression we have had for the last 8 years.

          • I can see your point. Trump doesn’t have a track record for us to determine what he’d do. However, there’s no way, in my opinion, he’d be a continuation of the Obama type oppression.

            He’ll be in the news daily. He’d let the people know wasn’t going on. Which is good and bad. I’m sure, to create nees, the media would say he’s trampling on the constitution. You know the media has to be right.

            Obama gets away with his stuff because the Republicans are weak. I bet they’ll give in to his supreme court nominee. Maybe they won’t. If they do the Republicans will say well the voters would have taken it out on us at the ballot box.

  4. YOU CAN STICK YOUR MONEY UP YOUR YOU KNOW WHERE, TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT , AND YOU IDIOTS WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY STRAIGHT TO HELL WITH YOU..

    • Thank You Cyndi for telling it like it is. These people talk about money but they need to understand that these OTHERS are getting money handed to them hand over foot so they can buy there way in. Just look at Hildabeast which is Obummer’s white sister. Mr. Trump paid his OWN way which shows he is more of a man then these others who are getting handouts. I want TRUMP in 2016!!! I pray that GOD finds away to get him on the HILL and also Pray that Carson will end up being his VP so we can start with 2 clean MEN with NO political bullshit behind them. Then I want TRUMP to CLEAN house and REMOVE all of these ILLEGALS including the ones Obummer made legal!!! And let him put up the WALL and do what ever he wants so WE the PEOPLE can have our country back!! I hope you agree.

    • MOST DEFINITELY THE BIGGEST MOST CROOKED CORRUPT DRUGGIE KILLING CITY IN OUR COUNTRY THE ILLEGAL OBAMA RACIST TERRORIST MUZZIE TOWN

  5. Since when is it surprising politicians flip flop to test where the votes are? So much animosity amongst you all here. When you use angry words it does not intimidate anyone! If you want the same old things we are used to vote the traditional candidate. If you want to take a chance to get some change Trump is your man. He embodies the American way! THAT’S WHY WE VOTE. Put a computer in the White House if you want whats fair for everyone!

    • Speaking of computers in the white house, do you remember when the Clintons left the white house and Bush was coming in, Clintons put super glue in the computer keyboards ! Not president material .

  6. THESE INBREED ELITE EMBEDDED RINO LIBERALS ANTI AMERICANS WHO CALL THEMSELVES REPUBLICANS ( DEMON C RATS IN SHEEPS CLOTHING ) ARE DEATHLY SCARED OF DONADL TRUMP / THEY KNOW JAIL ~ PROSECUTION IS ON THE WAY SO THEY WILL DO ALL THEY CAN TO TRY AND STOP DONALD TRUMP / WE THE PEOPLE MUST NOT LET THAT HAPPEN >> RUBIO IS SUPER AFRAID HE WILL BE GETTING JAILED / GOD BLESS AMERICA AMEN

  7. What evidence can anyone offer that demonstrates that Trump is any different from all the other rich people for whom most of you in this comments sections say you are tired and sick of buying candidates. So, what if Trump isn’t beholden to another billionaire? He’s not beholden to you, do do a single blasted thing that he’s convinced you that he will do. His past actions, should speak louder than any crap that he’s blasting. He’s no different than Obama, in that he’s tapping into your rage and blowing hot air that makes you feel good, but he’s no conservative, he’s a fiscal liberal, and he has basically told us that he will use the government to fund for his personal enrichment. He’s a businessman and will say anything to make a deal. Does anyone remember that he was considering a run for the presidency as a Democrat? He has no fiscal conservative or business or constitutional originalist legal principals to follow. He’s as trustworthy as Obama. He follows the all-mighty dollar and lives his personal life at his whim, dumping wives when they get old, for younger models. He’s as ready to accept democrat hand-outs as he is to perform on republican pork-barrel spending. He’s out to make money for him and his business partners. Why hasn’t anyone asked him who are his business partners? He’s not alone his this venture as he portrays. He has investors and other financial/fiduciary commitments to which he’s beholden, but no-one has reported upon, discussed or investigated? He’s a corporate Democrat, and is using all the same strategies to get to you and sooth your desires for personal advancement as do typical democrats use to warm up to minorities and the various “victimized” segments of the population. He’s pumping you folks full of swill and the only winner from a Trump Presidency will be Trump and his friends, just the same and any other crony insider. Go for a candidate who has DEMONSTRATED in his life, the principals he claims – Carson or Cruz. The rest are establishment pawns.

    • Not Trump. How can he be an establishment pawn? Cruz would be a do nothing president. He can’t get along with Congress, right?

    • Mr Trump has never told anyone that he would use the government for his personal enrichment. You sound like a bitter old man. All Trump wants to do is Make America Great Again for his children, your children and my children. How could anyone ever find fault with that. Believe me, If he had anything the establishment or the Media could bring out on him, they would have by now. Trump is a very honest person and also a very good business man.

      • Mr. Du Pre has stated more truth and common sense than everyone combined! The problem with us Americans is we are full of opinions, spending time to research a person, any subject matter, how to repair something etc. takes away from your tv, computer, party time ( do nothing time) and so on. Do your research and keep you foolish opinions to yourself! Trump is a business man whom has obligations to many institutions, individuals and so on. He has made a lot of money, some of which included using the “system” to acquire federal money, and no it wasn’t a loan! If we don,t personally know someone then we are not able to state what they would or would not do. I am a true conservative who can honestly state there is no one person who can change the course of our future. One could slow or speed up the process but, we need to change our senators and representatives who we elect to get a positive turn around. Life long polititions serve life long polititions! We did not get where we are in just the last 8 years! Research and listen to Ben Carson he has truly done his research through out his campaign. He has gained more knowledge on U.S policy in the last 6 months then many 1st term congressman. And yes I realize it would truly be a “miracle”for him to be elected at this time! Research shows all the other candidates are self serving, obviously some more then others. As the old adage states, I will vote for the lesser of two evils, but Trump or Cruz could surprise us, after all no one new Reagan would turn out to be one of the best modern day presidents in history. So quit believing statements “Make Amercia Great Again” as truth! It is by design to appeal to the heart and capture votes. For within it lies no substance. So please show your intelligence and not your stupidity. With all sincerity and respect! Signed a concerned U.S citizen of Greatest country (God created ) in current history.

    • James you summed it up so well. Everything you said is exactly how I see it coming down. Trump is used to winning at ALL costs…

      I am still Cruz supporter but way back in the game I was a Carson supporter when he first announced.

      Ben Carson is a man who is very reputable in my opinion.

      Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all the GOP candidates could work together, united as one for the people and the good of our country.

  8. Too bad these people couldn’t find a way to invest the money in some good players instead of attacking the great hope for the future of the USA

  9. The GOP has been taking advantage of its voters for decades. With Trump, its time to get even with the Republication Establishment. Trump all the way.

  10. Trump 2016 and those that don’t like Him that’s just personal so we the people are tired of us election duds so we put you there you didn’t perform “your Fired”. Go Trump go.

  11. When even business profit millionaires continue plunking tons of money with no realistic statistical signals of any favorable expectations of yielding dividends from their political donations, it is obvious, Mitt Romney, his friend Marlene Ricketts of Cubs team with losing streaks, and sour grapes ex Romney adviser Katie Packer are just driven by emotional vendettas, nothing more constructive than that.

    Even super wealthy business tycoons succumb to human flaws of emotional & capricious retaliatory manifestations. They have the advantage of disposable cash to express their emotional fury against Trump. If they actually gave a damn about helping to elect better caliber of presidential leadership, they would have invested their monies years ago by implementing social and political arsenals to raise national climate of political integrity and constructive performance. They did nothing. Instead these anti Trump deep pocket bullies are no more concerned with improving national patriotism than are wealthy Muslims, Soros, and foreign owners of Fox Network and Haliburton type who are for profit treasonists, as well as all those Wall St. hedge fund groups each likely to sell every middle class American, including military soldiers, into dry sun burning Arab desert if the price was ample enough.

    If they really cared about the quality of government leadership, they would not be supporting Cruz nor Rubio. Both are the antithesis of healthy economic reforms and restoration, since neither have any experience in areas which define our nation to justify global respect and fear. If these anti Trump wealthy donors really cared about reviving patriotic strengths, then why bother with a couple of career politician lawyers, both with iffy citizenship qualifications pertaining to running for president, as Cruz and Rubio, whose skills are limited to demolishing assets, not generating them for anyone outside themselves and their personal benefactors.

    Our nation’s global image has always been contingent on perception of our economic health and depth of patriotism displayed by American citizens. Feelings of patriotism have weakened and mostly cosmetic. If each polled, most law abiding taxpaying middle and lower economic class citizens feel betrayed daily by their partisan legislators, by government bureaucrats and the wealthy donors pulling strings. It is shallow and ignorant for any news media and political analyst to wonder why the Trump train is controlling the rails to the White House.
