Neo-con Bill Kristol's mask comes off; admits he's socialist & liberal


There is a fumigation — a disinfection of America — going on.
Can you feel it?:

  • Every day, creeps like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Charlie Rose are being outed and banished from Hollywood and the MSM.
  • Human traffickers and pedophiles are being arrested at a number that dwarfs the years of Obama.
  • Enraged by the election of Donald John Trump to the presidency, the Left are apoplectic and are abandoning all pretenses. Many have stripped off their masks, revealing their true faces, like “comedienne” Kathy Griffin when she held a mock-up of President Trump’s decapitated head.


It’s like our opponents have taken the truth serum: they just can’t help outing themselves.
The latest to out himself is the neo, i.e., faux conservative Bill Kristol, founder and editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard — the never Trumper who:

Yesterday, Kristol finally stripped off his mask, admitting that he’s a socialist and a liberal. He tweeted:

Kristol’s fellow liberals certainly recognize one of their own and greeted his tweet with elation. Some examples:

Bongmaster: “Embrace it Bill. Embrace humanity.”
NYC118: “Come into the light!”
Michael Rowland: “I didn’t agree with you about basically anything until 2016. Now I follow your stuff constantly.”
The Man in Black: “Welcome to the world of all Democrats that have started following you on Twitter since Orange Caligula became the GOP nominee.”

But the choicest reactions to Kristol’s self-unmasking are from the Deplorables:

Pol0tix: “You are becoming the jackass we always suspected you really were!”
Tj Kansler: “You’ve lost your mind and your moral compass.”
American Real News: “Kristol is a prototypical RINO. They believe in nothing so they fall for everything.”
Mamie Love: “The entire right has rejected you, an inauthentic neocon, so you now have to play to the left to keep your taxpayer-funded country club lifestyle intact.”
Noni: “What’s happening is that Trump’s election is exposing all your Globalist freaks who were pretending to be Conservatives; this election has brought out the inner Loon of you & your NeverTrumper buddies.”
Tim Parton: “You’ve never been for the people, traitor.”

Neo-con Bill Kristol openly supports a deep-state coup: What this means for Trump's presidency

On February 13, General Mike Flynn resigned from being President Trump’s national security adviser and apologized for telling then-VP-elect Mike Pence an untruth — that Flynn had not discussed the issue of sanctions with Russia’s ambassador to the United States. Reportedly, Flynn resigned in lieu of being outright fired.
President Trump did the right thing in removing Flynn because he cannot have as his adviser someone who lies and who might have violated the law (Logan Act) in speaking with and negotiating with the Russian ambassador without Trump’s authorization.
But this matter is more than “just” the removal of a dishonest aide because it has to do with how Flynn’s conversation with the Russian ambassador came to light in the first place. Only U.S. intelligence agencies could have accessed, by illegally wiretapping, Flynn’s conversation, and then leaked the transcript of the conversation to the MSM who are just chafing at the bit to find anything to take down Trump’s presidency.
In the last weeks of the Obama administration, the intelligence agencies were complicit in an effort to subvert the November 8 election with wholly unverified and unfounded allegations that Russia had intervened in the election by hacking and leaking to WikiLeaks damaging emails of the DNC, Hillary Clinton, and the chair of her campaign John Podesta. Trump responded that, as President, he will reform the intelligence agencies, beginning with the CIA.
At the time, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) darkly warned that Trump would be “really dumb” to take on the intelligence community because “they have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you.” Asked if this was a threat against Trump, former Senator Ron Paul (R) said, “I think he [Schumer] is speaking the truth there — better watch out. I think Trump knows about it. That’s why he has private security.” (See my post “Trump’s war with the CIA”)
The take-down of Mike Flynn was the first shot at the Trump administration from the intelligence agencies that are bureaucracies in the executive branch of the U.S. government over which President Trump presumably is the head. The intelligence agencies’ illegal wiretapping of Flynn’s phone conversation and transmission of the transcript to the MSM therefore is an act of revolt, pure and simple. As Thomas Lifson of the American Thinker points out:

Make no mistake: we have just witnessed an operation by members of the CIA to take out a high official of our own government. An agency widely believed to have brought down democratically elected governments overseas is now practicing the same dark arts in domestic American politics. Almost certainly, its new head, [CIA Director] Mike Pompeo, was not consulted . . . .
Note that the law was broken by whoever leaked the transcripts to the media. Not only is the crime underlying the “scandal” being ignored, but the criminals are being hailed. On Morning Joe‘s first hour today, the host, a former congressman (i.e., a lawmaker) himself, called the leakers “heroes.” …
The Flynn Affair is a huge scandal, all right.  But the media are misdirecting our attention toward the lesser dimension while they studiously ignore the real threat to our democracy.
This interference in domestic politics by the CIA should be regarded as a major threat to our democracy, but of course our Trump-hating domestic media are reveling in a major point scored against the new president.

To make matters even worse, the leak of Flynn’s conversation is only one of several leaks from the Trump administration. In a series of tweets, President Trump identifies the problem:
trump-tweet-on-leakstrump-tweets-on-intelligence1trump-tweets-on-intelligence
On the intelligence agencies’ takedown of Flynn, neo-conservative Bill Kristol, founder and editor at large of The Weekly Standard and a network political commentator, tweeted:
bill-kristol-coup-tweet-2-14-2017
Kristol’s declaration that he prefers the unelected “deep state” to the constitutional government of duly-elected President Trump is nothing other than Kristol’s admission that he supports a coup d’état.
One of Donald Trump’s campaign slogans was “Drain the Swamp”. President Trump must thoroughly excise the rot in the intelligence agencies, beginning with the CIA and the National Security Agency (NSA) — Gen. Flynn would have been director of the NSA. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the FBI must arrest the wiretappers and leakers, the reporters who solicited and received the transcript from an illegal wiretap, as well as Bill Kristol for openly advocating and fomenting treason against the United States (as per Article III of the U.S. Constitution).
The continuation of Trump’s presidency and his very life depend on it.
Pray for President Trump. Pray for America!

Neo-con Bill Kristol: lazy, spoiled white working class should be replaced by immigrants

Bill Kristol is the neo-conservative, i.e., warmonger for Israel, and the founder and editor at large of the political magazine The Weekly Standard.
kristol-betrayalKristol was hostile to Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy from the start, and would rather that Hillary Clinton be elected president. See:

Trump won in spite of Kristol’s opposition and machination, after which Kristol tweeted that he finds President Trump’s “America First” inaugural speech “vulgar” and “embarrassing”.
I used to think that what Trump’s opponents — Hillary, the Democratic Party, the Left, and fake conservatives like Bill Kristol — don’t get is that Trump won because he alone listened to and stood for America’s working class (see “2016 Revolt of the Deplorables: The Forgotten Working Class“). But I now take that back:

They do know, but they just don’t care.

Last Tuesday night, February 7, 2017, Bill Kristol finally stripped away whatever deceptive mask he still wore when he called white working Americans “decadent, lazy and spoiled,” and applauded their replacement by immigrants.
The occasion was the American Enterprise Institute’s “It Came Apart: What’s Next for a Fractured Culture” — a panel discussion on how Donald Trump’s rise relates to the white working class’s record low levels of labor-force participation, religiosity, and family formation, which panel participant Dr. Charles Murray had described in his 2012 book Coming Apart: The State of White America.
At one point in the discussion, Dr. Murray observed that the 2016 election revealed “a very strong disaffection by the white working class toward the new upper class, fueled in substantial part by the open contempt and disdain that the new upper class has for the working class and especially for the white working class.” That is why although Murray had never warmed to Donald Trump, the election did lead him to favor a restrictionist policy on low-skilled immigration — that people with low skills should be restricted from immigrating to the United States.
To that, Bill Kristol replied that he’d “actually sort of gone the opposite way on immigration,” meaning he favors unrestricted immigration for the low-skilled. Admitting that he is telling a truth about himself which he expects will make him a pariah, Kristol said:

“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? Seriously, you can make the case—this is going on too long and this is too crazy, probably, and I hope this thing isn’t being videotaped or ever shown anywhere [because] whatever tiny, pathetic future I have is going to totally collapse.

After some awkward laughter from the audience, Kristol continued:

“You can make a case that America has been great because every—I think John Adams said this—basically if you’re a free society, a capitalist society, after two or three generations of hard work everyone becomes kind of decadent, lazy, spoiled—whatever. Then, luckily, you have these waves of people coming in from Italy, Ireland, Russia, and now Mexico, who really want to work hard and really want to succeed and really want their kids to live better lives than them and aren’t sort of clipping coupons or hoping that they can hang on and meanwhile grew up as spoiled kids and so forth. In that respect, I don’t know how this moment is that different from the early 20th century.”

You can see and hear Kristol for yourself in this extended video of the American Enterprise Institute event. The video is set to begin at the 54:15 mark when Kristol began his controversial remarks:

In contrast, Dr. Murray was sympathetic to the white working class.
As Henry Wolff of American Renaissance points out, Murray reminded the panel that since immigrants concentrate in working-class areas, working-class Americans “bore the brunt of that kind of unasked-for ethnic heterogeneity,” while America’s elites “live in neighborhoods that are exactly the way they want them to be.” This disparity was the source of a “great deal of the anger” in the 2016 election. That is why, unlike Bill Kristol, Charles Murray supports limiting low-skilled immigration because:

“We as Americans owe an obligation to our fellow Americans . . . that should take priority over our obligation to the world’s population and globalization.”

“We as Americans owe an obligation to our fellow Americans” is, of course, precisely Donald Trump’s America First.
H/t Vox Populi commenters.

UPDATE (Feb. 11, 2017):

Bill Kristol applauds the replacement of America’s white working class with immigrants because the latter are hardworking whereas the former have grown “decadent, lazy, and spoiled”.  Here’s a graph from LaborEcon that shows more non-U.S. citizens receive welfare (cash, food stamps, Medicaid) than citizens.
noncitizens-most-on-welfare
And so, Bill Kristol, not only are you an anti-white racist and an elitist who disdains the working class, you are also just plain WRONG about immigrants being harder workers than the “decadent, lazy and spoiled” white working class.

Neo-con Bill Kristol finds Trump's 'America First' vulgar and embarrassing

Sat, 21 Jan 2017 00:53:21 +0000

eowyn2

I’ve said before that neo-conservatives are warmongers.

Bill Kristol is a prominent neo-conservative. From Wikipedia:

“William ‘Bill’ Kristol (born December 23, 1952) is an American conservative political analyst and commentator. He is the founder and editor at large of the political magazine The Weekly Standard and a political commentator on several networks.”

kristol-betrayalBill Kristol has been hostile to Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy from the start. See:

In a tweet today, reacting to President Trump’s inaugural speech, Kristol‘s phony conservatism is unmasked. He says he is embarrassed by, and finds it “profoundly depressing and vulgar to hear an American President proclaim ‘America First’.”

Here’s his tweet:

bill-kristol-tweet

So Bill Kristol, the neo-conservative, is a warmonger and a “globalist” who thinks an American president who puts America’s interests first is vulgar, depressing, and embarrassing.

The questions that then must be asked are:

If not America, which nation should come first for an American president?

In whose interests does Kristol warmonger?

From Wikipedia:

“Kristol is associated with a number of prominent conservative think tanks . . . [and] serves on the board of the Emergency Committee for Israel . . . .

Kristol was born on December 23, 1952 in New York City, into a Jewish family. His father, Irving Kristol was an editor and publisher who served as the managing editor of Commentary magazine . . . and has been described as the “godfather of neoconservatism”

If you’re an American who loves America, why would you listen to this man or read his magazine The Weekly Standard?

Bombshell: Clinton Foundation paid Glenn Beck & Bill Kristol to suppress votes?

UPDATE (Oct. 17, 2016):

The Daily Beast claims that they were contacted by a man who says he faked the Clinton Foundation Confidential Accounts Payable Invoice document for the express purpose of making fools out of Trump supporters. The man identifies himself as only “Chris from Massachusetts,” without a last name. Neither the man nor Daily Beast provides any proof that “Chris from Massachusetts” indeed had created the phony document. We are to simply accept their claim as truth.
The title of the Daily Beast‘s article, “The Vigilante Faking Wikileaks Docs to Dupe Trump Trolls,” is also misleading because WikiLeaks had never claimed the Clinton Foundation document as one of its leaks. Just go to WikiLeaks‘ website, type “Clinton Foundation Confidential Accounts Payable Invoice” in the search bar. You’ll get 0 results.
♦     ♦     ♦     ♦     ♦
clinton-foundation-invoiceA bombshell of a document popped up on the Internet yesterday — a page allegedly from the Clinton Foundation Confidential Accounts Payable Invoice for the month of October, which lists Glenn Beck and Bill Kristol as money recipients.
As you can see, the page from the Accounts Payable Invoice lists 14 names to whom the Clinton Foundation had paid considerable sums of money for “voter suppression”:

  1. $89,000 to A.C.O.R.N.
  2. $42,300 to William (Bill) Ayers: unrepentant former Weather Underground domestic terrorist; early supporter of and like ghostwriter for Barack Obama.
  3. $109,000 to Glenn Beck, the radio show host who was an avid supporter of Ted Cruz during the GOP primaries, and continues to be a diehard opponent of Donald Trump. (See “Glenn Beck suspended by SiriusXM radio for hinting at Trump assassination”)
  4. $203,000 to Black Lives Matter.
  5. $333,400 to the Black Panthers.
  6. $10,000 to Bill Kristol, founder and editor of the conservative magazine The Weekly Standard and, like Beck, is dead set against Trump. (See “Bill Kristol declares there will be a 3rd-party candidate against Trump”)
  7. $80,600 to Monmouth University, presumably the university’s Polling Institute that conducts political and election public opinion polls.
  8. $12,000 to Evan McMullin: McMullin is the former chief policy director for the House Republican Conference in the House of Representatives and a former CIA operations officer who’s running for the presidency as an independent.
  9. $207,100 to Organizing for America, a “community organizing project” of the Democratic National Committee.
  10. $75,000 to Public Policy Polling, a rival of Monmouth University Polling Institute.
  11. $30,000 to Sharia Law Center: I can’t find “Sharia Law Center” on Wikipedia or from a net search. The only thing close to it is an Islamic Law Center at Yale University which, according to Breitbart on Sept. 13, 2015, received a $10 million donation from Saudi banker Saleh Abdullah Kamel,who is the chief executive of Dallah Al Baraka Group — a bank founded by Osama Bin Laden and investigated by U.S. officials for bankrolling al-Qaeda’s operations worldwide. According to Breitbart, there are other Saudi-funded Islamic Centers in Harvard University, Georgetown University, Columbia University, Rice University, the University of Arkansas, University of California in Los Angeles, the University of California/Berkeley, and countless other institutions.
  12. $320,900 to Tony Rezko, who had shady real estate dealings with Barack Obama. In 2011, Rezko was found guilty of demanding kickbacks from businesses that wished to engage in dealings with the state of Illinois.
  13. $24,000 to Lawrence Sinclair, presumably the Larry Sinclair who claims he had oral sex and coke with Obama in 1999 when Obama was an Illinois state legislator.
  14. $111,200 to Unite Blue: Stronger Together @UniteBlue or is “a 501(c)(4) nonprofit that connects real people on the Left because every voice matters”.

Two sites published the Clinton Foundation Confidential October Accounts Payable Invoice document:

  1. The Hal Turner Show
  2. A tweet sent by Jackk Posobiec, who describes himself as “Special Projects Director of @Citizens4Trump. Recovering political operative. Veteran.”

The problem is neither Hal Turner nor Posobiec has a source for the document.
There are speculations that the Clinton Foundation Confidential October Accounts Payable Invoice document is fake — a hoax to muddy the waters churned by all the hacked emails and documents leaked by WikiLeaks.
One reason to doubt the authenticity of the document is because it lists A.C.O.R.N. as the recipient of $89,000 in “voter suppression” funds. ACORN is the acronym of the criminal syndicate Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — a collection of “social justice” community-based organizations which dissolved in 2010 after being defunded by Congress in 2009. However, ACORN members and organizers have formed new organizations in at least three states.
Here are some reasons why the document may be the real thing:
(1) The document’s contents are alphabetically consistent (“Vending Machines,” “Voter Suppression,” “Water”) with its page number 8/9. Why fake a document and number it page 8/9?

(2) According to a leaked memo from Nate Silver to Patrick Murray, the director of Monmouth University Polling Institute, Monmouth rigs its polls to favor Hillary Clinton. See “Leaked Monmouth U. polling memo: Democrats ‘despondent’; Hillary unpopular with minorities & Millennials, seen as a ‘lying harpy’”.
(3) A secret supporter of Hillary Clinton named Louise Mensch works for Evan McMullin — the alleged recipient of $12,000 in Clinton Foundation “voter suppression” funds who is running for the presidency as an independent.
Louise Mensch, a former British Conservative MP and the co-founder of the conservative website Heat Street, is revealed by WikiLeaks to be a secret supporter of Hillary Clinton. In an email on February 14, 2016 to Hillary crony Michael Kives (which was then forwarded to John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary’s presidential campaign), Mensch advises Hillary’s team on how to better “sell” their candidate to America (source: Constitution.com):

Mensch also shouts her support for Hillary in a July 29, 2016 tweet:

(4) Tony Rezko: At first, the fact that Antoin “Tony” Rezko is listed as a recipient of more than $320,000 in Clinton Foundation “voter suppression” funds seems odd because in 2011 Rezko was sentenced to 10½ years in prison. But it turns out Rezko is no longer in prison. In July 2015, as reported by ABC7 Chicago, he was released from federal prison to a halfway house in Chicago. According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Rezko, age 61, register number 19050-424, was released on 05/05/2016.
(5) The Clinton Foundation Confidential October Accounts Payable Invoice page has an imprint of the Clinton Foundation’s logo. Would a forger go to the lengths of doing that? Here’s the logo from the Clinton Foundation’s website:
clinton-foundation-logo
(6) Unite Blue: I had never heard of Unite Blue until this document. It is so obscure that Wikipedia doesn’t have an entry on it; I had to do an Internet search to find out what it is. How probable is it that a fraudster would dream up this obscure left-wing non-profit that exists only on Twitter?
Based on the above evidence and reasoning, this explosive Clinton Foundation Confidential October Accounts Payable Invoice may be the real thing, which means Glenn Beck and Bill Kristol are even worse than we had thought.
What do you think?

GOP stabs Trump in back: Ryan advisor leaked 'p*ssy' tape; voter registration drives sabotaged

Last Friday, Oct. 7, 2016, someone leaked a tape to the Washington Post of a supposedly private conversation from 11 years ago between Donald Trump and Access Hollywood‘s anchor, Billy Bush, a nephew of former president George H.W. Bush.

See “BETRAYAL: Republican former Pres. George H.W. Bush will vote for Hillary Clinton

In that supposedly private conversation, Trump made lewd “locker-room” guy talk with words like “pussy,” about his failed attempt to bed a married woman. At the time of the conversation, Trump had been married to Melania for only 3 months.
Well, it turns out that the audio had been edited to give the impression that Trump was being adulterous in his attempt to seduce the woman. Edited out of the audio was Trump saying that the incident with the married woman had taken place when he was a single man.
Even worse than the artful and malicious editing is the source of the leak.
Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Jr. was the first to suggest that GOP elites may have leaked the tape to Washington Post. Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit confirmed that GOP elites indeed had leaked the damaging “pussy audio”:

“I spoke with a reporter tonight who believes the reports are true. It was GOP elites who released the audio to the Washington Post.”

donald-trump-and-paul-ryan
Independent journalist Mike Cernovich identified the source of the leak as Daniel “Dan” Samuel Senor, a close advisor to House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Wikipedia describes Dan Senor, 44, as:

“an American columnist, writer, and political adviser. He was chief spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq and senior foreign policy adviser to U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney during the 2012 election campaign. A frequent commentator on Fox News and contributor to The Wall Street Journal, he is co-author of the book Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle (2009).”

Henry Makow describes Dan Senor’s career as:

“a textbook example of how to succeed by serving the Illuminati bankers’ Zionist Division which includes Israel, the US and Western Europe. […] Caught the eye of Neo Con boss William Kristol who famously said the Iraq war was conceived by 25 Jewish intellectuals in Washington.
Worked for the Carlyle Group , the tenth biggest defense contractor in the world, which specializes in starting the wars that may require its products. It hires retired politicians like GHW Bush who are able to get funding for weapons even if the Pentagon doesn’t want them.”

Guess to whom Senor is married?
Journalist Campbell Brown, 48, a former CNN host and NBC anchorwoman who now writes op/eds for publications like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Daily Beast and Slate. In 2014, Bill Kristol, the anti-Trump editor of the supposedly conservative Weekly Standard, proposed that Brown run for Democratic New York senator Charles Schumer’s Senate seat.
dan-senor-campbell-brown
Here’s Campbell Brown admitting that her husband, Dan Senor, had leaked the “pussy tape”. She actually calls Senor’s betrayal “fun”:
campbell-brown-tweet-admits-dan-senor-leaked-pussy-tapeWiki identifies the “religion” of both Dan Senor and Campbell Brown as “Judaism”.

See “Jewish Anti-Defamation League says Trump’s ‘America First’ is anti-Semitic

The GOP’s sabotage of Trump’s campaign isn’t confined to leaking the “p*ssy tape”. According to Mike Cernovich:

Donald Trump’s get out the vote efforts have been sabotaged at every level by the GOP, sources report exclusively to this reporter. Some of the sabotage is obvious and clear, and others is more subtle. Their motivations for sabotage vary from personal and professional jealousy to financial.

Cernovich describes two ways in which the GOP is sabotaging Trump’s voter registration drives:

  1. Bait-and-switch: Cernovich says that Trump volunteers have told him that when they went to their local GOP office to get out the vote, they were told to campaign for other GOP candidates. When the volunteers say they wanted to campaign for Trump, they were told to leave.
  2. The big ignore: Other Trump volunteers said they’d show up to GOP offices only to find the doors had been locked. Their calls would go unreturned. All of which made it impossible to volunteer to get out the vote for Donald Trump.

Journalist Mike Tracey said that the GOP headquarters in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania was closed on a Sunday – a huge day for voter registration efforts. A concerned GOP operative warned that “Trump will not win PA unless drastic change is made.
In Florida, voter registration data show that Democrats are walloping Republicans. The Florida Democratic Party has submitted about 488,000 voter-registration forms it has collected for this election, while Republicans have submitted only about 60,000.
According to Cernovich, the GOP was sabotaging Trump’s efforts even well before the leak of the infamous “p*ssy tape”:

The GOP’s plan was to lose Pennsylvania, Florida, and Ohio. Then the “hit mic” video gave them an excuse to make their sabotage public. The “hot mic” video had no effect on voter sentiment, but it did give the saboteurs an excuse to publicly renounce Trump. Local offices were shut down, and Senators and Congressmen and other Republicans were told that endorsing Trump would lead to funding being cut off.

The GOP is committing suicide.
polls_GOP_Suicide_4337_123568_poll_xlargeAlready, according to Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson, her phone is inundated with text messages from all over the country of people voting for Trump but not necessarily voting for other Republicans who are up for election/reelection.
katrina-pierson-tweet
By sabotaging Trump, Paul Ryan, a Catholic who claims to be pro-life, and other GOP elites not only are ensuring that Hillary Clinton  — who is not just pro-abortion, but favors late-term abortion — is elected to the White House, they are signing the death sentence of their party.
I say: “Good riddance”.

“It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to.” –7:00 AM – 11 Oct 2016

Bill Kristol declares there will be a 3rd-party candidate against Trump

polls_GOP_Suicide_4337_123568_poll_xlargeIn the early days of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, fearing that he might go independent if he did not get the GOP’s nomination, the Republican Establishment begged him not to because it would ensure a Hillary Clinton win.
Trump agreed.
Now that Trump has, fairly and squarely, won enough delegates in GOP primaries to be the party’s presidential nominee, GOP elites are doing exactly what they had asked Trump not to.
On Sunday, May 29, 2016, Bill Kristol, the so-called “neoconservative” (which really comes down to mean pro-war) editor of The Weekly Standard and son of Jewish parents “godfather of neoconservatism” Irving Kristol and Gertrude Himmelfarb, announced on Twitter: “There will be an independent candidate–an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance.”
Bill Kristol tweetBreitbart reports that Bill Kristol has been trying for months to find a third-party challenger since his preferred candidates lost in the Republican primaries to Trump.
Kristol has floated names including Mitt Romney, Tom Cotton, and Marco Rubio as potential third-party spoilers. Kristol tried to get retired Marine Corps general James Mattis to run, but Mattis turned him down.
Kristol recently met with Romney in Washington, D.C., to talk about the idea.  Romney has consistently bashed Trump throughout this election cycle, even after Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee. In January this year, Romney and Paul Ryan filed an intention to run for the presidency with the Federal Election Commision.
The Republican National Committee has condemned Kristol’s third-party scheme as “helping to elect Hillary Clinton.”
david frenchMark Halperin and John Heilemann report for Bloomberg, March 30, 2016, that the person Kristol has in mind is David French, a staff writer at Weekly Standard, whose name Kristol floated in the magazine’s current issue.
French is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, a recipient of the Bronze Star, a constitutional lawyer, and author of several books. He lives in Columbia, Tenn., with his wife Nancy and three children.
Reached in Israel late yesterday afternoon, Kristol declined to comment but confirmed that French is open to launching a bid. French has not made a final decision and reportedly has not lined up a vice-presidential running mate or significant financial support. However, according to one person deeply involved in the efforts to recruit a 3rd party challenger, some conservative donors look favorably on the prospect of French entering the fray.

Billionaires at that secret 'Stop Trump' Sea Island meeting

In 1910, a group of banksters and politicos secretly met on Jekyll Island and birthed the Federal Reserve — a strange public-private hybrid of privately-owned banks that act as America’s central bank with limited government supervision. (See “Federal Reserve’s Secret Taxpayer-Funded $12 Trillion Bail-Out of Global Banks“)
In early March 2016, another group of extremely wealthy élites also met secretly on an island a mere skip, hop, and jump away from the infamous Jekyll Island, this time to devise a plot against Donald Trump. (See Trail Dust’s “About the Saint Simon’s Island Meeting“)
Sea Island, Georgia
In yet another sign that Establishment Republicans are extremely worried about a Trump presidential candidacy, a group of billionaires and Republican political élites attended the secretive annual World Forum of the neo-con American Enterprise Institute (AEI), held in a luxury resort on Sea Island, Georgia, March 3-6, 2016. 
AEI meeting on Sea Island1AEI meeting on Sea Island2
As reported by Huffington Post, the main topic at the closed-to-the-press meeting was “How to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump.”
Borrowing the opening lines of nothing less than Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto — and entirely oblivious to the irony of a conservative mouthing a communist — Bill Kristol, founder of the supposedly-conservative magazine Weekly Standard, wrote in an emailed report from the AEI meeting:

“A specter was haunting the World Forum — the specter of Donald Trump. There was much unhappiness about his emergence, a good deal of talk, some of it insightful and thoughtful, about why he’s done so well, and many expressions of hope that he would be defeated.”

GOP political guru Karl Rove gave a presentation outlining Trump’s weaknesses. Rove insisted voters would have a hard time seeing Trump as “presidential,” which must be why they are turning out in droves to vote for him. [Sarc]
Here’s a list of the AEI World Forum attendees:
(1) High-tech billionaires:

In addition to the Sea Island meeting, according to Bloomberg, there are yet other “stop Trump” conspiracies: “A trio of conservative groups not affiliated with any candidate has spent about $28 million against [Trump], mostly on negative ads that aired in the past few weeks. So far, the effort has failed to dent his popularity.”

According to FEC filings, contributors to the “stop Trump” conservative groups include:

  • The Warren brothers, Stephens and Jackson, who gave a total of $3.5 million last month to two of the groups, on top of $500,000 last year. Stephens Warren has given a total of $300,000 to super-PACs supporting Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, and Chris Christie, all of whom have since dropped out.
  • The Ricketts family of Omaha, Nebraska have given $5 million since January.
  • New York hedge-fund manager Paul Singer gave $1 million.
  • San Francisco investor William Oberndorf gave $500,000.
  • Club for Growth: A super-PAC run by Club for Growth (CFG), a powerful conservative group that pushes for limited government and lower taxes, is one of the first organizations to take on Trump. According to The New York Times, the super PAC raised $4 million in February, three times as much as it had raised any other month this election cycle. Donors include:
    • The Warren brothers gave $2.5 million in February.
    • Richard Uihlein, an Illinois shipping-supplies manufacturer who backed Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign last year, gave the Club for Growth $500,000.
    • Richard Gaby, who gave $50,000 to a super PAC backing former Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana.
    • Robert Arnott, a California-based investor who has poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into groups backing Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.
    • Robert Mercer, who backs Ted Cruz, gave $100,000.
  • A political network led by billionaires Charles G. and David H. Koch, which is the biggest and deepest-pocketed independent political force in the conservative world.

ZeroHedge observes:

To beat Trump, you need to figure out how to tap into the same anger and yes, in some cases the same perceived narrow-mindedness, of his support base and you need to give them an alternative that addresses their concerns without resorting to the same type of bombastic rhetoric that so alarms the frontrunner’s detractors.
Like it or not, Trump’s support base are voters. They’re also Americans. It’s more important to understand what they want and why than it is to disparage the man they think should lead the country. Until someone in the GOP figures that out, the party won’t stand a chance of stopping Trump.
