Back in 1992, Lt. Col. (Ret.) James “Bo” Gritz revealed that Ronald Reagan had been ordered by one of the Rockefellers to choose George H.W. Bush as his running mate. Then, around mid-May of 2016, Donald Trump met with Henry Kissinger and James Baker. It is surmised that Trump was ordered to select Ted Cruz as his running mate.
Thus reads the description for my latest video, “Bo Gritz in Mesa”, published to YouTube on May 28, 2016. The clip, which clocks in at 7 minutes and 13 seconds, can hopefully be viewed at the top of today’s blog entry.
James Gordon “Bo” Gritz is a former United States Army Special Forces officer who served in the Vietnam War. His post-war activities included attempted POW rescues in conjunction with the Vietnam War POW/MIA issue. 
Bo Gritz is the supposed inspiration for Sylvester Stallone’s character in the original Rambo movie “First Blood.” 
On April 4, 1992, Bo Gritz gave a talk in Mesa, Arizona: 
In Mesa, I met with him [Cleon Skousen] and I said, “Why in the world did Ronald Reagan sell us down the tube by taking George Bush as his running mate?” And I really didn’t know that Cleon knew Ronald Reagan rather well. But he told me: He said, “Bo, George Bush was Ronald Reagan’s greatest opponent,” (if you’ll remember, back in the 1980 elections), “and Ronald Reagan said he would never have him. Then, Ronald Reagan was invited to New York to go see Rockefeller. When he saw Rockefeller, he was told, ‘If you do not take my head of the Trilateral Commission'” (remember, the Council on Foreign Relations, George Bush) “‘as your running mate, the only way you’ll see the inside of the White House is as a tourist.'” 
Like today, back in 1980 there was a divide in the Republican Party between the rank-and-file and the east coast establishment. A compromise was brokered by one of the Rockefellers. Now notice this item from May 18, 2016: “Donald Trump met with Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in New York…” NBC gives a fig leaf tale, saying it was to strengthen Trump’s foreign policy bona fides. What was really discussed? Trump had met with James Baker, another establishment Republican, the previous week. 
Instead of Rockefeller, we have Henry Kissinger and James Baker brokering a compromise. They say to Trump, “The only way you will see the inside of the White House except as a tourist is if you choose Ted Cruz as your running mate.”
And then comes this news item on May 27th: “Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump on Friday said he was retiring the ‘Lyin’ Ted’ nickname he hammered Sen. Ted Cruz with in the Republican primary contest…”  What is being implied by Trump is that, “Gee whiz, Ted Cruz is not such a bad fellow after all.”
Remember, you heard it here first: Donald Trump selects Ted Cruz as his running mate.
