There’s some confusing news breaking through all the media right now about an independent running for president. Interesting huh? I mean why freak out over an independent no one has ever heard of when media claims to not even have enough time to report on the top 5 candidates already running? Well this independent supposably is backed by major GOP leaders. If that isn’t scary enough he has connections with the United Nations and has worked with the CIA and Goldman Sachs. His name is Evan McMullin.
Evan McMullin’s Twitter account is the epitome of everything traditional Republicans want to see. A few retweets of McCain, Romney, and Paul Ryan here and there, along with some attacks on Donald Trump for his disregarded for personal liberty. My question is why would someone who has worked for the CIA worry about personal liberty? I mean doesn’t the CIA constantly use fear to spy on people and get billions in funding? Also how would the establishment benefit from endorsing his campaign instead of an already established 3rd party campaign? There’s so many questions to ask since the majority of establishment candidates are neoconservatives.
It would seem the establishment would only hand pick Evan McMullin if he were someone they could control, or that he will divide the voters enough to help someone else win. My question is, help who win? Most people might instantly rush to think this is a plot to give Hillary Clinton the White House, but this also would divide independent voters. From my understanding Donald Trump voters are very loyal, so loyal that Trump could “shoot someone” and get away with it. If this is true, then McMullin might actually hurt 3rd party candidates more. All the Never Trumpers who went to Gary Johnson and Darrell Castle might unify around Evan McMullin along with undecided conservatives. This would basically destroy the chances of getting an actual independent thinker into the White House. And if Donald Trump did lose with McMullin running, no one will blame it on Trump being a jerk, they’ll blame it on there being a 3rd option again. The establishment wants nothing more than to keep people voting for the 2 party system, so it’s possible they’re using McMullin to destroy people’s trust in independent campaigns again.
Another theory is Evan McMullin is legitimate and actually trying to go completely through with this. Sadly that still doesn’t disprove that he’s funded by Washington corruption and his victory would still leave us with another establishment candidates. Either way if McMullin surges in the polls, the establishment wins. Unless of course he isn’t influenced by big time GOP leaders. It’s just a huge coincidence that he decided to run right when Trump started dropping in the polls, has no political background to go off of, and magically got all the media attention not offered to any other independent candidates.
Whatever the reason for Evan McMullin’s run, I’m simply suspicious of the intentions of him and his backers. I suggest not rushing to his campaign until we know exactly what’s going on. Don’t trust major media even if they sound afraid of him. Anything could be a lie at this point considering how desperate people are getting in this crazy election year.
