  • Seven Lifelong Hard Core Republicans Who Consistently Bash Trump (Unpleasant but informative)

    Right now, the fate of the country lies in the hands of "classic" or "throwback" Republicans. The Grand Old Party currently controls all three branches of government, but its "big tent" happens to include a lunatic fringe of "low information voters" and bigots that delivered the presidency to Donald Trump. It's now up to the sane Republicans to try and wrestle power away from this subset, before the drive the entire country, and perhaps the world over the cliff. You already know how low Trump's approval numbers are, and you have heard him ripped to shreds already by the left,...

    White working class Americans have become "lazy" and might have to replaced in the workforce by "new Americans" emigrating from other countries, The Weekly Standard editor at large Bill Kristol said this week. Immigrants are the future of the United States, just like they were at the beginning of the 20th century, Kristol told author Charles Murray during a videotaped event. "Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white, working class, don't you want to get new Americans in?" Kristol said. The Daily Caller reported on the existence of the video, which...
  • Top McMaster Ally Bill Kristol Plotting to Primary, Oust Trump: Must ‘Take One Shot’

    Bill Kristol, a prominent “Never Trumper” and one of national security adviser H.R. McMaster’s fiercest defenders and allies, is reportedly scheming to primary or oust President Donald Trump so Republicans do not renominate him in 2020. According to a New York Times report, Kristol “said he had begun informal conversations about creating a ‘Committee Not to Renominate the President.'” “We need to take one shot at liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism,” Kristol told the liberal Times reporters. On Twitter, Kristol, the limelight-seeking saboteur, seemed proud that he was again quoted in a legacy media paper,...

    Bill Kristol, the Never Trumper and top H.R. McMaster defender and ally who is reportedly working behind the scenes to primary or oust President Donald Trump, wants Never Trumpers to rebrand themselves as “liberals.” Kristol’s “conservatives” are mostly the Never Trumpers on Twitter, the professional “conservative” establishment in Washington, and professional operatives in the establishment political world. They also favor “liberal” immigration laws so legacy media elites and corporatist establishment Republicans will like them. In a Saturday tweet that speaks for itself, Kristol wrote: Conservatives could "rebrand" as liberals. Seriously. We're for liberal democracy, liberal world order, liberal economy, liberal...

    "Never Trump" may be getting a facelift for 2020. Bill Kristol, editor-at-large of the Weekly Standard, said he has initiated informal talks about creating a "Committee Not to Renominate the President." "We need to take one shot at liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism," Kristol told the New York Times. After the story was published Saturday afternoon, Kristol shared it on Twitter, with the message: "The task in 2020: 'Liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism.'" Kristol's disapproval of Trump dates back to the campaign, when the "Never Trumper" pushed for Evan McMullin's...

    That will just make it easier for Trump to win re-election. The other day, Bill Kristol, sounding like a spokesman for the ACLU, decried the theism of Donald Trump. “In America the president doesn’t tell us who or what or whether to worship,” he harrumphed on Twitter after Trump merely said that Americans worship God above government. To these Americans, the Dems lift up their middle finger and declare them “intolerant.” This gives Trump an enormous political advantage. With very little effort, he can pick off uneasy religious voters in the center while pulling down almost all of them on...

    It's "Made In America" week in Washington, D.C. You'd think this would be cause for bipartisan celebration. Who could be against highlighting the ingenuity, self-reliance and success of our nation's homegrown entrepreneurs and manufacturers? Enter Bill Kristol. The entrenched Beltway pundit ridiculed a festive kickoff event on Monday at the White House, where President Donald Trump hosted companies from all 50 states to showcased their American-made products. "Maybe it's just me," killjoy Kristol tweeted, "but I find something off-putting about turning the White House into an exhibition hall for American tchotchkes." (That's the Yiddish word for useless trinkets). "Tchotchkes"? Tell...

    The neocons, who have influenced U.S. foreign policy since the 1980s, inflicting grave damage on U.S. interests and the world, are reinventing themselves as soldiers in the anti-Trump #Resistance In these summer dog days of the Trump presidency, good news is hard to come by, but in late June it was reported that the successor institution to William Kristol’s Project for a New American Century, the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI), was shutting its doors for good. FPI was founded in 2009 to give the displaced neocons who had worked for President George W. Bush a platform from which to endlessly...

    One of the most under-discussed yet consequential changes in the American political landscape is the reunion between the Democratic Party and the country’s most extreme and discredited neocons. While the rise of Donald Trump, whom neocons loathe, has accelerated this realignment, it began long before the ascension of Trump and is driven by far more common beliefs than contempt for the current President. A newly formed and, by all appearances, well-funded national security advocacy group, devoted to more hawkish U.S. policies toward Russia and other adversaries, provides the most vivid evidence yet of this alliance. Calling itself the Alliance for...

FPI was founded in 2009 to give the displaced neocons who had worked for President George W.

  • Max Boot’s “GOP is the White Nationalist Party” Smear

    Frontpage Magazine ^ | March 31, 2017 | Matthew Vadum
    Pseudo-conservative Foreign Policy blogger Max Boot is making the outrageous claim that the entire Republican Party has been taken over by a dangerous racist fringe. Boot’s insane argument rests on one core contention: that because Republicans tolerate, even like, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), a patriot and a truly courageous conservative champion, their party has therefore fallen into the hands of white nationalists. The fact that King isn’t actually a white nationalist or a racist, which is the real thing Boot is accusing the lawmaker of, in no way hinders the writer from making his pitch. Nor does the unbalanced Boot...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | March 15, 2017 | Cristina Laila
    Rachel Maddow stepped on a rake last night after she released Trump’s 1040 tax return form from 2005. All she proved was that President Trump paid millions in taxes; he paid a higher tax rate than Obama and Sanders. Rachel Maddow wasn’t the only one who came unhinged last night. The liberal meltdown after her epic failure was a beautiful thing to watch. Never Trumper, Bill Kristol went off the deep end suggesting Maddow is perhaps a double agent, turned by Steve Bannon. Her tax return stunt was perhaps a way to distract from the news cycle battering the CBO...

    Foreign-policy hawk Bill Kristol Tweeted out his preference for a political victory by “the deep state” above the nation’s laws and over President Donald Trump’s voters and policies, amid an increasing furor over the forced resignation of Gen. Mike Flynn. The “deep state” is jargon for the semi-hidden army of bureaucrats, officials, retired officials, legislators, contractors and media people who support and defend established government policies. Those “deep state” officials include the intelligence, law-enforcement and national security officials who worked in President Barack Obama’s administration but who are still working in permanent or temporary positions in the White House...

He retired from the Weekly Standard and he went and made — was it Brookings, AEI? I’ll find it during the break. I’m not so sure he meant this, but there are others — well, he might have been facetious. I’m not sure. But what he basically said was that he agrees with John Adams, that after two or three generations of successful capitalism in our society, what...

From The Daily Caller: Weekly Standard editor-at-large Bill Kristol said Tuesday afternoon that the white working class should be replaced by immigrants as they have become “decadent, lazy” and “spoiled.” “Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new...

"Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in?"   After making the remark, Dr. Kristol joked, "I hope this thing isn’t being videotaped or ever shown anywhere. Whatever tiny, pathetic future I have is going to totally collapse."   The conversation took place February 7, 2017 at an American Enterprise Institute event called "It Came Apart: What's Next...

    The Chinese put China first. The Russians put Russia first. Israelis believe in Israel first. So, what’s wrong with Americans seeking to put our country before a faceless, vacuous globalism that has eaten away at our manufacturing base, taken the lives of our best and brightest overseas, and threatened our standard of living for decades? According to neoconservatives like Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, apparently a lot. Kristol let out a tweetstorm before and during Donald Trump’s “America First” themed inauguration speech Friday, highlighted by this gem: "I'll be unembarrassedly old-fashioned here: It is profoundly depressing and vulgar to hear...

    Kristol announced that he would become The Weekly Standard’s editor-at-large, “continuing to write weekly editorials and contribute to the website.” Steve Hayes and Richard Starr would take over the day-to-day operations of the website, Kristol wrote. Under Kristol’s editorship, The Weekly Standard has been the central publication for neoconservatives, including Kristol’s father, the so-called “godfather” of neoconservativism, Irving Kristol. During the election season, Kristol was a leading voice in the #NeverTrump camp and searched publicly for months for a conservative alternative to Trump
