    Four in 10 Republicans want to see Trump primaried? His approval rating within the party is normally something like 80-85 percent. Who are the GOP voters who give him high marks for his performance but also want another option on the menu two years from now, knowing how badly a serious primary challenge might weaken him in the general?
  • Bill Kristol Predicts Democrats Will Sweep Midterms And Turn GOP Against Donald Trump [VIDEO]

    Editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol, predicts Democrats will win back both houses of Congress in November, causing Republicans to turn against President Donald Trump. “I think the chances of Democrats winning both houses are pretty good now,” Kristol said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “It’s obviously important if Democrats win the House and/or the Senate and changes the dynamics for the next two years. But the day after election day for Republicans, something you and I have talked about a lot, Joe, is very important.” “That’s the moment where Republicans stop justifying the vote in 2016 for Donald...

    On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Weekly Standard Editor-at-Large Bill Kristol reacted to the raid of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen by stating he believes the move is either part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, or in concert with Mueller’s wishes. He further said that the move is “war” and “shows that we are very close now to the end game.” Kristol said, “[I]f Robert Mueller asked the Southern District of New York not to do this now, they would have held off. I mean, he has sort of precedence here. So, I’m a little doubtful that this is...

    Conservative commentator Bill Kristol gave an interview to CNBC where criticized the editorial direction of his former network Fox News, particularly with regard to primetime host Tucker Carlson. Speaking with John Harwood, the former Fox contributor said his old network has embraced a “gradual increasing of recklessness” as they try to appeal to pro-Trump audiences. Kristol said Fox saw an opportunity to seize upon opposition to Barack Obama‘s presidency, and he also expanded on what he told Morning Joe about how Fox is leaning towards the hard right and views that used to exist on the political fringe. “Now Fox...

    Golden Globes was an indication she’s preparing to run for the White House. Kristol then took-up the hashtag #ImWithHer — once used by supporters of 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton — to highlight his support for Winfrey’s worldview. In an email, Kristol said the tweets were "tongue in cheek." "Though if she runs, couldn't she win the Democratic nomination and the general election?" he added. "And wouldn't she be a better president than Trump?"

    Conservative commentator Bill Kristol said that President Trump and Senate candidate Roy Moore (R-Ala.) are bringing out his "inner liberal." In a tweet Tuesday afternoon, the founder and editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard suggested that his long-held views are being tested by Trump and Moore, as well as a growing number of sexual allegations and the Republican Party's tax-reform effort.

    A news website funded by hedge-fund billionaire Paul Singer says it contracted the firm to research 'multiple candidates' Matthew Continetti, the editor of the neoconservative website Washington Free Beacon, wrote in a letter posted online just after 7 p.m. on Friday that the Free Beacon hired Fusion GPS during the Republican primary to do research on Republican candidates. That research kicked off what became known as the “dossier” used to smear Donald Trump. The Washington Free Beacon is funded by New York hedge fund manager Paul Singer, who backed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in the Republican primary, and was vigorously...

    Lawyers for the conservative publication Washington Free Beacon informed the House Intelligence Committee Friday that the organization was the original funder for the anti-Trump opposition research project with Fusion GPS. The Free Beacon funded the project from the fall of 2015 through the spring of 2016, whereupon it withdrew funding and the project was picked up by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign. The original arrangement between the Free Beacon and Fusion GPS involved opposition research into multiple Republican candidates, not just front-runner Donald Trump. Sources close to the Free Beacon stress that the project, when the...

    Neocon and fake Republican Bill Kristol’s wife Susan donated to far-left Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam this past August, a GotNews review of Virginia public donation records reveals. According to the Virginia Public Access Project, Susan S. Kristol of McLean, Virginia donated $200 to Northam for Governor on August 24th, 2017, her only donation to any candidate running in the state this year. Mrs. Kristol is listed as a non-wage earner, but apparently has enough cash lying around to bankroll left-wing candidates.

    Former CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson on Thursday tweeted an article that argued American Jews are pushing for war in the Middle East, specifically with Iran. The article, titled “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars,” is featured in The Unz Review, an online magazine that bills itself as an “alternative” to the “mainstream media.” After several minutes of questions from Twitter users who were shocked by her tweet, Wilson doubled down, arguing critics should read the article and “put aside” any biases. “1) First of all, calm down. Re-tweets don't imply endorsement. Yes, very provocative, but thoughtful. Many neocon hawks...

    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...

    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...
