Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol has clearly decided he dislikes the GOP nominee Donald Trump so much he is willing to throw the election to a 3rd nightmare Barack Obama term with Hillary Clinton, which will ensure a left wing Supreme Court for the next 40 years.
That isn’t exactly what I thought conservatism was all about, but Kristol and those with him seem to be happy with the idea of conservatism being some kind of Holy Cult that never exercises power by actually winning elections. It’s really insane and disgusting. Kristol and his ilk aren’t just betraying Conservatism, they are betraying the nation.
Just a heads up over this holiday weekend: There will be an independent candidate–an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance.

He already hasn’t delivered on this promise so what should people believe?
Bill Kristol, one of the nation’s leading conservatives and editor of the influential Weekly Standard tweeted on Saturday: “Just a heads up over this holiday weekend: There will be an independent candidate–an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance.”
But if the news is true, it could be bad news from Trump, who himself had threatened a third party bid during the early stages of the GOP primary.
On Monday, NBC News Sunday listed potential independent candidates Kristol may have in mind.
The network identified Mitt Romney, but said sources close to the former Mass. governor saw his entrance into the race as “unlikely.”
They also discounted Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, a strong critic of Trump, signing on.
But the network identified potential wildcard choices, including former Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice and current New Mexico Governor Susanna Martinez.
But the Kristol news indicates Trump appears to have failed in winning over key conservative base support as he prepares for the RNC’s July convention in Cleveland, usually a unifying event for the party.
Two leading conservative thought publications – Kristol’s Weekly Standard and the National Review, remain staunchly opposed to his candidacy, even with Trump close to holding the official Republican imprimatur.
Any presidential run by an independent candidate from the conservative right would provide Clinton with the keys to the White House….and that is not a guess it is a fact. Further, any such person crazy enough to try it will be scorned for life.
I wish nothing but ill will for either Kristol or Romney or any of their followers, supposed patriots and conservatives. You are all such whiners that you cannot see the forest for the trees. In every race, physical or at the ballot box, there are losers and there is a winner. The losers can whine and moan, and ruin their careers for that, or they can get behind the winner and make the best out of what they perceive as a lemon. Lemonade is not all bad at all.
These self-absorbed, arrogant narcissists cannot possibly think they are creating something for the better.
I hope none of them come back to the Republican Party, and if they do, I will campaign against their involvement. These idiots do not care at all about the American constituency.
What do you think about Bill Kristol’s promise? Do you think he has a third party candidate to run against Trump what do you think it is all just a large amount of noise? Share your comments below thank you us an idea of what you are thinking.
