William Kristol Has Recruited NRO Writer and Iraq Veteran David French for his #NeverTrump Presidential Candidate?
— Ace

Hm.

Well, French is one of my favorite writers on the entire right. I've quoted him enough times.

A few months ago I was talking with someone about actual thought leaders -- not like the Twitter people who think they're thought leaders -- and I named, as my own thought leaders, Andrew McCarthy and David French.

And he has a presidential level bio -- Constitutional lawyer, soldier.

Is this serious? Well, French recently seemed to pick Trump's pocket and steal one of his key emotional issues, while keeping it respectable enough for the intellectual class.

I can't recall the first time I heard the phrase “white male” hissed as if it were some form of particularly vile insult. I know it happened in law school, where it was used as a short-hand way of saying that I should be silent, that my views were not welcome. Over time, I learned that, to a certain set of people, there was something positively wrong with being white.

"We" were the great privileged oppressors of history. And "we" were the great privileged oppressors of the present. Our law schools are, in many ways, incubators for the identity politics that dominate the social-justice Left. For those soaked in progressive identity politics, skin color was a stand-in for virtue.

It was impossible for a black person to be racist; it was impossible for a white person not to be. Any in-depth discussion of history had to acknowledge past injustice. It was tough even to talk about, say, Omaha Beach without in the next breath acknowledging the systematic segregation in the World War II–era U.S. Army.

Since my law-school days, the problem has only gotten worse. Now the true cultural and historical demons are white -- gasp! -- "cisgender" males, and any white cisgender woman who doesn’t appropriately check her privilege. The ticket to white acceptability in progressive politics is a form of self-loathing: a constant attitude of repentance not just for the sins of the past but also for the benefits of the present, which are presumably enjoyed only or mainly because of the plunder and exploitation of "brown bodies."

Oddly enough, this self-loathing doesn't diminish the power of the white progressive. The movement is still chock-full of rich white men and women. Indeed, they mainly lead the American Left. They simply purport to hate and mock "white males: with the same intensity as do their black friends.

But while there’s no price paid by Harvard Law students who "check their privilege," or by Silicon Valley execs who enthusiastically embrace the latest trends in identity politics -- they and their families will do just fine -- the rest of white America is not so fortunate. We're left with the odd reality in which white kids who live in trailer parks are "privileged," while the sons and daughters of wealthy black doctors are "oppressed" -- in which the legitimate concerns of white working-class and middle-class Americans are dismissed as misguided at best (after all, they’re privileged) and racist at worst.

Here's the problem: Progressives don’t like to admit this, but identity politics work as the mirror image of white supremacy -- compressing the extraordinarily rich and complex histories of nations, continents, and cultures into one characteristic: skin color. For the white supremacist, white people are natural-born victors. For the identity-politics leftist, white people are natural-born predators.

...

When identity politics rule, racism and polarization thrive. It is no coincidence that we are seeing a resurgence in outright white nationalism-- embodied in the so-called alt-right --at the same time that America's leftist cultural elite are decisively rejecting Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream that Americans be judged by the "content of their character" and not the color of their skin. When one side decides that skin color is a virtue, then -- as sure as the sun rises in the east -- the other side will eagerly agree....

The answer to misguided identity politics isn't more misguided identity politics.

Well I have two objections to a David French candidacy:

1. I think he'd be a perfect candidate -- one that I'd like an awful lot -- and my own understanding on this issue is that candidates I really like can never get elected to office.

2. He'd be a strong, well-funded, perfectly acceptable spoiler. My problem isn't a David French candidacy; it's a David French candidacy that can't actually win, but just serve as a protest vessel for 10% of the party, and thereby deliver the presidency into the corrupt talons of Hillary Clinton.

Eh. I'll keep my eyes open.

The minute I think he could actually win, I'm on the #FrenchRiviera.

But I need to see that this isn't just some protest candidacy by a miffed intellectual class with a pressing career interest in maintaining their #RespectabilityWithintheUpperMiddleClass.

But if it's more than that -- and if he has a dollop of charisma (I've never actually heard or seen him) -- then yeah, hell yeah. I'm interested.

But really, this would have to be more than personal career protection for some discarded beltway intellectuals.

I'd also like to see him say something about immigration other than the Intellectual Establishment Class Approved Rubio Line (give full amnesty now, get some additional border security later... maybe. God willing.)

But I have a feeling that a candidate put forward by a wing with a beloved "We're all Americans, including people who aren't American" globalist line would have to wind up echoing that line, even if he didn't necessarily believe it.

I assume that to capture the #NeverTrump remnant -- the bulk of whom are fire-breathing Rubio loyalists, for some bizarre reason I can't fathom -- French would have to parrot the Rubio Line on immigration.

And these are supposed conservatives that are now openly trying to help Hillary become our President.

Posted by: AD at May 31, 2016 01:54 PM (Q+fXS)

29 So I take it from ace's post that French has the stupid, clueless "position" on mass illegal immigration and rule of law? Because stupid, and clueless, is exactly what it is, and all that it is. Which, if other things hadn't raised an eyebrow already, sort of indicates the "intellectual" level of many "intellectuals". Anything resembling amnesty, anything *not* constituting a clear turn towards normal rule of law in immigration, would be an instant, unrecoverable, and long-living catastrophe. As anyone who's involved or has given 10 seconds' (intelligent) thought recognizes, instantly. Oh well, off to the gym. Sounds like French, is, in fact, pretty stupid - when it comes to actual, you know, policy and things that matter.

Reposting a few notes from the last:

Before David left for Iraq, French and his wife Nancy put together rules.... There would be no drinking during the year of separation. Nancy would not "have phone conversations with men, or meaningful e-mail exchanges about politics or any other subject." Nor would she be on Facebook...

Yes, can't see that becoming an issue when running against the first woman to head a major party presidential ticket.

39 At a certain point, doesn't this basically just become the equivalent of writing your own name in on the ballot? After all, that would perfectly line up with your preferred ideology, right? No surprises that way, and you won't have to tell friends at a dinner party you voted for icky Trump.

40 >>>So I take it from ace's post that French has the stupid, clueless "position" on mass illegal immigration and rule of law? no i'm not sure. I would guess he's probably not in love with the Rubio position. But I think the first group of people he'd have to corral for support would be the #NeverTrump/#AlwaysRubio contingent, and so I imagine he'd have to peddle the Rubio line whether he believed it or not.

Posted by: Aetius451AD at May 31, 2016 01:57 PM (3ZoRf)

46 How does Kristol get around the problem that a candidate can get around the registration dates issue? It's already been noted elsewhere that Texas's registration date has come and gone. And while a hypothetical Hillary replacement might not care whether he or she shows up on the Texas ballot, that's a rather important state for any candidate claiming to run on the right. On a somewhat related note - Insty had a link up earlier today. I didn't follow it, but the headline suggested that Trump might have serious cash flow problems going into the general. Most candidates by this point have raised a good chunk of cash, and have donors solidified behind them. Trump, famously, ignored most of that during the primary. And that probably means that he doesn't have much money going into the general.

50 I like how all of these jackasses claim to want to 'preserve conservatism' when there is no singular understanding anymore as to what that even is. (I guarantee that Kristol's and Shapiro's definition of what that means is not the same as yours). And... They are going to preserve some esoteric meaning of conservatism by short circuiting (opposite of conserving) the selection process? This might have been a great idea eight months ago. Now - it's a temper tantrum.

58 The only way this makes sense is that Hillary is Kristol's second choice for the white house. Either his Mysterious Candidate of Mystery wins, (Yay), or Hillary wins, (also, Yay). This guy French is conservative, as even Ace acknowledges, and is not going to siphon votes from She-Hag, he's going to take them from the GOP nominee, Trump.

Like it or not, a vote for French is a vote for Hillary...and I think Kristol knows this.

I saw the movie listed on a list of "genre switch" movies, like From Dusk till Dawn, where the movie starts at as one type (in hancock's case, a superhero parody comedy) and then lurches into a different direction (in hancock's case, into some serious superhero movie with a strange and interesting mythology involving superheroes as eternal gods).

82 Bad business for lots of people. A lot of people, such as French, Thor, Beck, Kristol, Liz Mair, Erick Erickson, etc. are killing their careers/businesses. ------------------------------- It's just possible, stupid as it may seem to a lot of people, that they think that their are things more important then their careers. Or, they may just be deranged, who knows? -------------------------------- They're not just going after Trump, they're screwing with the Base and screwing with an election to help Hillary Clinton win. The actions and the words of these people will not be forgotten nor forgiven. Posted by: Mister Magoo at May 31, 2016 06:59 PM (jJSCP) ----------------------------------- This idea that opposing Trump is screwing with "the Base" - I don't think it holds up. The people trying to give Cruz delegates, manning Cruz's very strong get-out-the-vote operation - those were "the Base." The people Trump was attacking.

It was stupendously, aggressively awful. And the actor they had playing him was bad too. Dracula was terrible. Igor was terrible. The werewolves were stupid. Dracula's brides were... well, conceptually, they were fine, but then everything was this over the top fakey cgi. The only good part of that movie were the duergi (evil dwarves). Who were barely in it, and weren't explained. Also, all of Van Helsing's weapons were dumb and seemed designed first by the toy makers (Van Helsing with real spinning saw-blade!!!).

I think they believe that all of her hard left blather at the moment is just her trying to get to the left of the Bern so she can secure the nomination without alienating all of his supporters. The supreme court vacancy puts the lie to this one. Not to mention it is a different country than the one Bill presided over. He tacked to the center because he had to in order to survive politically. The current occupant has shown that you can govern as a hard left jackass, but as long as the press will cover for you (And your horrible performance on myriad of issues) then you will still be okish. I do not like Trump. However, the time for their dream candidate was many months ago. They did not feel enthusiastic about Cruz, they were not enthusiastic for Jindal. This is where we are at.

221 He's right in his diagnosis of the modern Left, but the idea that the Right should play fair & appeal to some form of universal values while the Left does what it's doing is a questionable tactic. Also, I have no idea if MLK would've had certain conservative ideas if he lived, but taking his most quoted lines out of the context of their time and using them as platitudes is silly. He supported racial quotas in the late '60s, I would not be surprised if his views today echoed modern black politicians' views that we need "evening out" policies. That's nitpicky, but the NRO-type conservative trope of reappropriating King gets kinda lame IMO.

320 French. [shrugs] 90% of elections is name recognition. The name "Donald Trump" is recognized by 98% of Americans. The name "Hillary Clinton" is recognized by 97% of Americans. The name "David French" is recognized by 3% of Americans. It has nothing to do with his quality as a human being or his political views. It has everything to do with that fact that he is starting the race as essentially an Unknown to most people. As a result, he will almost certainly be marginalized and will get no mass traction. Can he peel away a couple thousand votes in swing districts in Ohio and Pennsylvania from Trump, enough to hand Hillary victory in those states, and thus the White House? Possibly. But nothing more than that -- French has zero chance as a n actual candidate himself.

368 332. Zardoz was one of those flicks that really surprised me. I was fully expecting a crappy 70's sci-fi, and it didn't fail to deliver, and it was funny and trenchant commentary on what amounts to the postmodern condition - the immortals live beautiful, empty lives; the brutals live nasty, brutish ones, and a giant floating head consumes wheat and vomits guns. What's not to love?

His political platform was EXACTLY what (and I and most people here) wanted. And you really thought he had a chance to win -- because he was a good guy with good beliefs. And then reality struck. Ouch. Lopsided defeat, despite all the enthusiasm for him. Because that's the real world: Name recognition. His D opponent was well-known. Didn't matter that he was also a crook and a lefty - -the name recognition was a crushing advantage. I predict the same thing will happen to Bill Kristol and his new candidate. So perfect! So admirable! Wipeout.

I think he might have said that about I Am Legend or something.

408 "You mean winning like McCain, or winning like Romney?"

McCain's blowout was the permanent end to the Bush style interventionist foreign policy.

I'd argue that Romney's defeat was a major factor of Trump's success. In a lot of ways, he's the anti-Romney candidate.

Trump's defeat will likewise kill his style of politics. If you oppose illegal immigration, the Trump candidacy is one of the worst things that could have happened to you politically. And you guys embraced him with open arms.

Hence the joke.

458 yeah he said it for the release of I Am Legend: At the start of his career, Smith sat down and analyzed the most successful movies of all time and tried to copy them, he told Time Magazine: "I said, 'I want to be the biggest movie star in the world.'" Lassiter, seeing promise that few others in Hollywood would, took his friend seriously and found a list of the 10 top-grossing movies of all time. "We looked at them and said, O.K., what are the patterns?" Smith recalls. "We realized that 10 out of 10 had special effects. Nine out of 10 had special effects with creatures. Eight out of 10 had special effects with creatures and a love story." ... Should be pointed out that I Am Legend originally just had some human actors with light make up for the mutant antagonists (like the Charleton Heston movie). Will Smith demanded that they insert all this post-shoot CGI to make their faces movie funny and turn them into "creatures."

469 How can anyone judge now if French has a chance? If he has a constituency?

The primaries are over. The means for him to demonstrate he can win now falls on fallible and probably manipulated polls and the amount of attention and distortion the left media is willing to exert.

There is no objective way to really find out if French could win. And I don't see the point in allowing it to get that far.

As long as anyone says that maybe they'll vote for him, that gives him just enough oxygen to convince donors to provide the cash to give to the leftists to present ads and let him on TV often enough to help Hillary win. Just like what happened with her husband.

472 I think both sides still need a dose of reality. For #NeverTrump no one other than Hillary or Trump will be the next president of the US. Period, get used to it. That's reality. For #Trumpsbetterthanthealternative you need to understand. That's the credible standard hereafter. A little game theory. Threats vs. Warnings. The former is considered credible. The latter not credible. Warnings you ignore, threats you actually consider when making your moves. We built up some credibility by losing some elections during the Tea Party years (Doing what visibly wasn't in our immediate best interest to enforce our standard as a move in a series of games with the GOPe). If we all fall in behind Trump, our credibility to make threats about candidates is gone. Period. That's reality. The party elites will change the rules to never loose control again, and you will never get a candidate who is any better than slightly better than the alternative because that's the new standard. You all who support Trump need to accept that. Just like the people who don't support Trump need to realize that the only other possible winner is Hillary.

505 I am seriously concerned that if (or when) Trump loses in November, the anger will not be at Hillary, who is the proffered "greatest threat" that requires a vote for Trump, but at all the "neocons", "establishment", and "cucks" who will be blamed for conspiring to defeat Trump... with the pro-Trump real establishment using it as an excuse to play "Lord of the Flies" and purge any threats to their leadership of an eviscerated party.

I already see this happening in Nevada.

Why am I concerned that if (or when) Trump fails, he won't be treated like another GOP loser (Romney, McCain, Dole, &c.), but the "victim" of the "establishment".  And let's face it, most of the hardcore early Trump supporters don't believe that Hillary is the greatest threat, but that the "establishment" is, and will paint anyone who isn't rabidly pro-Trump as "the establishment". 

Heck, IIRC, even Ace said that he wouldn't vote for Rubio if Rubio were the GOP nominee.

616 Hat. I believe you're wrong about Trump supporters not hating Hillary.

From what I've read and my own experience, that's just not true.

Yes a case can be made that some of what he has said IN THE PAST has been to praise her and her husband and aligned with Democrat Liberal proposals.

However, a man can change and much of his sycophancy was motivated by profit and being seen as "one of them" for the purpose of smoothing the way for his business and contacts.

Besides he's beating the media at their own game and that alone is worthwhile to see. It is very liberating and the press doesn't know what to do about it.

I don't believe he's a 5th columnist there to throw the contest to Hillary. It could be possible but unlikely.

I think these last years of Obama and his 8 year apology and kow towing tour of the world has also made inroads on Trump's ideology. He now sees that his best interests lies with becoming President and making some important changes.

Just digging the country out of the cesspit that Obama has pushed us into will be a fete for history.

Building a Wall and/or slowing/stopping illegal invaders will also be historic and release some pressure on the economy. Changing or improving our trade agreement so that we too get some markets out of them would be good. More jobs will be the best answer and not allowing any new jobs to be taken up by non natives will be a plus.

I think he knows exactly what Hillary will do and what a wreck she will make of what's left from Obama. And so do his fans.

Here's hoping.

621 552: "punch leader" yup. i think that explains a lot of trump's appeal. and an interesting phenomenon is that the more the lib thought leaders, pundits, etc. push back, the more his popularity grows. so far, i've enjoyed some of his brazen takedowns of the p.c. left. very satisfying. but he can be vile, unfortunately for me.

No sir, watching a man over the decades stay pretty much dead on center as to what he is about as he supported the Republican party sold me. But now that you bring up the conned schtick, is the ruse to hand Hillary the POTUS spot something that your letting yourself to be conned into or will you just man up, pull the Hillary handle and never again say the words principled and conservative in the same sentence ever again. I only say that because it isn't fooling anyone outside the clickey circle jerk with Billy and his sycophants.

First problem,  style:  One does not discuss such things outside of a relationship, let alone publish them. 

Second problem, substance (and see above, the first reason you don't publish them is they are for you, not for public scrutiny):  NO ONE PUTS BABY IN A CORNER.

What adult woman on this planet  of any worth needs to be told not to be a time-wasting alcohol-loosened slattern seeking the company of other men?  And what man thinks a conversation about politics leads to infidelity?   What woman doesn't know that emotional confidences with a man not your husband are out of bounds?   What person of honor and delicacy and decency can't talk about the weather and politics in moderation and keep proper boundaries?

I judge you wanting  if you need these rules.  I judge you wanting if you think these rules are necessary.  I judge you if you require such rules of your partner.   I judge you most of all if you announce your private marital negotiations with others.  

And women dislike being ordered and pushed around and told they can't talk about serious subjects with friends any way they like in any manner they choose,  unless there has been a track record of drunkeness or infidelity nothing excuses it,  and nothing ever excuses a broadcast of your marital negotiations.

Agreed.  I think It was the book that made me hate clowns.  Love The Stand, even the miniseries.  Love his old short stories (from Graveyard Shift and the Bachman Books).  I liked 11/22/63 quite a bit too, that's probably the last recent one I like.  Anymore, I won't spend money on the books, but will wait for them in the library.

Another great book I love is Swan Song by Robert McCammon.  It isn't often that books really affect me deeply, but that is one that did.

Posted by: DangerGirl and her 1.21 gigawatt Sanity Prod at May 31, 2016 08:02 PM (+eR2D) I gave up on King a while ago, but it was because of his dark, twisted plots. His technical writing skills are excellent, however, and in fact his book On Writing may be my favorite of all his opuses (or perhaps oeuvre would be a better word *sniffs, arches eyebrows, waves hand airily*). Of all of his works of fiction, however, I have two favorites. The first is Bag of Bones, the second is an early chapter in It when Ben gets out of school for the summer and mayhem ensues.

683 Well, this is the day the GOP gets what they want--a Hillary presidency. 

Meaning, for example, a permanently weaponized IRS.  Open borders.  Etc etc etc.

I don't know if I've read David French or not--there are a lot of Davids, as well as a lot of Charleses and Williams.

But the very piece you quote will be used as evidence of David French's white supremacist views.

"But that's not what he's saying!"

To which I say, when has the Left ever cared about properly representing their opponents' views?

The slander will go on page one.  The correction, if it comes at all, will be at the bottom of page 47.

I'm sure he can properly make intelligent arguments and defend his positions.  The problem is, that's reading Shakespeare at the circus.  The crowd will boo him off the stage; they want their tumbling clowns who keep them from thinking.

I would say that your point about this being a miffed clique playing spoiler is probably the correct one.  They want their columns and their foundations and their lobbying orgs, and they want to keep sending out begging letters and not have to appeal to those appalling.

I'm not a Trump fan, but I absolutely do not want Hillary. 

But I think that's what we're going to get now.

701 #550 So picking the unqualified Trump over the very qualified Cruz just because Cruz wasn't a great campaigner assigns no responsibility for that choice? I'm thinking personal responsibility isn't a quality you feel is nearly as important as wanting to get others to go along with an awful decision so you aren't sitting out on that limb alone?

709 "I'd actually kind of like one of them (or more) to make a rational explanation for what their plan would be from here. Hell, we've been made sick to death from knowing what they're against."

Well, I'm not going to vote for Trump and I'm not going to vote for Clinton.  If there's not a vote worthy candidate at the top of the ballot then I'll skip it and vote down ballot.

Do you mean strategically?  It's a funny thing.  So many people here in the comments talk about how they want to blow up the "GOPe" permanently and replace it with...?????  A united party of like minded thinkers to coalesce behind whatever grifter promises to be a better unilateral chieftain than the Democrat?

That's why "but Hillary!" doesn't work for me.  If the goal is to blow up the party then the goal is to lose national elections to the Democrats for the indeterminate future.  That's the path a plurality of the party has chosen with Trump.  Whether or not Clinton is more unfit for office is irrelevant.  The die has been cast and the choice is fractured opposition.

Hillary was baked in the cake two years ago.  I took the NeverRubio and NeverJeb people at their word and wouldn't begrudge them standing by it.

I reckon we'll get to see if there really is no difference between the uniparties over the next 12-20 years of Democrat majorities.  America craves entertainment so enjoy your popcorn.

If he can't get on the ballot in certain states, he is not a credible candidate. That is, if you are actually seeking to get elected.

But if you are seeking to spoil another candidate, like Trump for example, then he could possibly do that.  And by default, give the race to Hillary.

Kristol is on record as saying he'd rather have Hillary as President. And Kristol is the driving force behind this. 

Good Ole' GOPe Bill Kristol, a trustworthy soul if I ever saw one.

749 Very late to the comments, maybe it's already been said, but even if we allow for the highly implausible notion that a 3rd party candidate could win enough electoral votes to send it to the House, am I really supposed to believe that the House would be so foolhardy as to elect a candidate who won less than 20% of the vote? The new President would enter office with the lowest approval ratings in history, zero political capital, and the Republican party would get wiped out in the midterms elections, and for that reason alone there's almost no chance that they'd do it. And given how the Democrats acted after the 2000 election I'd say there's a greater than zero chance that there would be actual, real-live riots. This Bill Kristol stuff only makes sense if you accept the reality that his goal is not to get David French elected but to stop Donald Trump. I just wish he'd actually be honest about it and come out and endorse Hillary Clinton, but that would require integrity.

Posted by: Ghost of Lee Atwater at May 31, 2016 03:59 PM (nu45M)

751 I think we need to put to rest the notion that conservatives are the "base" of the Republican Party. Hell, they didn't want Reagan. And Bill Kristol has certainly shown his true colors. He prefers the status quo to someone who might shake things up. Maybe he considers that "conservative", but the status quo is bloated, out-of-control Federal government.

798 #765. Of course I know my answer was evasive. If you dont understand that while asking for input, then stating "one rule. The answer must be rational." Is condescending at best, then why should I bother? There are positions of those that support Trump that I find rational and those I find completely irrational. To assume everyone who doesn't think like I do is irrational is a motive to get others to shut up and tow the Trump line, not to discuss the differences between us.

It's a replay, in a way, of Buckley's NYC Mayoral run. It's a brilliant move. The candidate has not a chance, but the philosophy could be a winner. It's not about winning--it's about getting the message out there in a year when people will be unhappy with the two main offerings. It is the Sander's campaign, GOP version, and it is a way to force the Donald to the table. For he forgot a cardinal rule--"Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer." He can bitch about what Krystal is doing all he wants. He can't necessarily sink it, and that matters, for many different reasons. This may be the start of it all.

878 The French will eat almost anything. A young cook, Jean Luc, decided that the French would enjoy feasting on rabbits and decided to raise rabbits in Paris and sell them to the finer restaurants in the city. Jean Luc searched all over Paris seeking a suitable place to raise his rabbits. None could be found. Finally, an old priest, Father Pierre, at the cathedral said he could have a small area behind the rectory for his rabbits. Jean Luc successfully raised a number of them, and when he went about Paris selling them. One restaurant owner asked him where he got such fresh rabbits. Jean Luc replied with a smile, 'I raise them myself, near the cathedral. In fact, I have ... a hutch back of Notre Dame.'

He's a thin-skinned buffoon and the other alternative is Obama in drag. A 3rd Party candidate can not win and will only give Hillary a win.

910 Good lord... If you want proof of how the "conservative" intellectuals live in a bubble then this is it. Also please stop the "he served protecting the country!". Lots of Americans have served this country in wars. All of them deserved respect for that, but they don't deserve unlimited respect in all things. Just look at other men who served such as Jimmy Carter, John Murtha, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, etc., etc. If David French allows himself to be used as nothing more than a show pony for some goof ball neo-cons then he loses a lot of respect in my eyes. Not that I have a lot for anyone who is a National Review writer (veteran or not). Neo-Conservatives are not conservative. They are internationalist Wilsonian lunatics. Bill Kristol is one of those, and many Anti-Trump folks are of that ilk. Granted there are hard bitten conservatives in the Anti-Trump movement as well, but they are not going to be running anything. Bill Kristol wants American warriors to die in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Central Asia, and god know where else, not killing enemies, but nation building and installing democracies. I don't want any more of our best warriors dying for dreamy notions of Islamic democracy so that the "conservative" intellectual class can feel all morally enlightened in war. We fight wars to kill the enemy, not to nation build medieval civilizations so they can turn around to fight us again. Bill Kristol wants Hillary Clinton (who is a neo-con in foreign policy) for that exact reason, and David French will help him achieve that if he runs. I am sure America's warriors will thank him when they are being shot in the back by our newly minted "allies of democracy".

933 I assume this post won't be seen, like the others... I'm not a rubio loyalist. I'm not upper middle class. And I'm already a loudmouth conservatarian in a blue state. What it is with this 'preserving their careers' business? Kristol is going to help ensure conservatives are represented on the ballot. The assumed byproduct of this is that he's going to help Clinton win; however this does not follow *if Clinton is going to win anyway*. A perfectly reasonable reading of the US census, recent election results, recent polls, an understanding of where the dems are in their process of rallying, the stated intentions of the latino lobby to GOTV and the corresponding lack of voter ID protections indicates this is so. If French turns out to be anti-amnesty and gets a sizable chunk of the votes, there's a chance the party elites interpret that signal correctly for next time. Since GJ is open borders, that point will be lost with an LP vote, even though that's probably where I'll end up given that I can't seriously believe French will run. If I'm French, I save my resume for when I have a snowflakes chance in hell of winning; congress can be incredibly lucrative, y'know?

Did folks not grasp that destroying the GOPe would result in President Hil and, most likely, several other Dem presidents that were just as bad or worse? After all, the opposition to the left would have been left fractured for years, probably at least a decade. I think trying to shove the GOPe to the right, perhaps even replace it with a new party, might be a worthwhile endeavor. But I understand it would give the Dems an unopposed path to power for a bit. Why is NeverTrump derided but Burn it Down celebrated? Both, if they succeed, give us President Hil, which is apparently the end of the Republic.

Someone on the pro-nuclear side pointed out that while the Constitution lets the houses of Congress set their own rules of order, it doesn't give them the power to use those rules to require a supermajority on Executive appointments. To which Ponnuru's response was (almost verbatim): Well, it doesn't say they can't. So if you think any power not explicitly forbidden by the Constitution is implicitly permitted, Punnuru's your guy.

1010 >> Isn't the disdain for the Constitution among Trump >> supporters interesting? I'm a Trump supporter only reluctantly, but my position is this: We have a President who was widely acknowledged as a 'Constitutional scholar' and who has done more to break the Constitutional boundaries on authoritarianism than any President since, well, at least, Lincoln. Any study he has done of the Constitution was on the 'know thine enemy' basis. Trump's rhetoric is almost always in advance of his real positions. He may push certain statist positions. Frankly, after Obama what I want is a President who will hire an AG who will prosecute Obama's Cabinet to the ends of the Earth and beyond. I want a President who will spend my tax dollars bankrupting Holder and Lisa Jackson and Tom Perez and the rest of Obama's criminals. I do not think Trump will go there. And that's unfortunate, 'cause as President I certainly would. But I'm not running.

I think most graduates of those schools are tainted. Not electing them to office is another idea. I think at this point an Ivy League degree should be an outright disqualifier for public office. One of my pet ideas is to make lawyers ineligible for the Executive and Legislative branches. This would probably require an amendment.

The Constitution only had value when everyone who claimed to be living under it actually behaved as if bound by it. Now most of the country and all of the government ignores it, and most who recognize its original worth think talking about it a lot will somehow magically fix every problem we have.

Hopefully one of the organizations that eventually replaces this country will be composed of people who believe the ideas it was based on and they can try it again and not make the same mistakes we did.

That's something I have only heard from leftist with open contempt for the Constitution up to this year. Posted by: lowtech redneck at May 31, 2016 10:55 PM (KF8B+) Ha. That's funny. There is respect and proper respect. Fuck proper respect. The only things that deserve our proper respect are our freedom and our dignity.

1120 Which, as much as it pains me to admit, is not a good reason because a vote for candidate #3 (whomever the guy they trot out) will not even be on the ballot, but he does siphon votes away from our side.

We have to figure out what our plan is. I am not sure I like the plan of going with Trump, but I sure as hell do not want Hillary. At least if Trump wins, we can try to come up with something.

At this point, going with magical third candidate just works against us, while letting us feel good about ourselves and our principles.

From what I have read of French, he has more than that going for him. From my perspective, I am not voting for Trump or Hillary and I haven't found a third party candidate who respects my rights... so, if French will, he has got my vote.

You see, the reak fundemental fault in the Constitution is it relies way too much on us. I don't have a good solution for that except to destroy the Empire and fix a few mistakes in the Constitution and try again with the whole Republic thing. That is what makes me a radical. That is what I am getting at when I say worship. The folks who are triggered by that are paralyzed with fear. Bring down the Empire that pretends to be a Republic. The Empire is using the Constitution against us. It has put some very bad amendments in it and uses reverence for the Constitution to protect those Amendments. The 16th feeds the Empire and turns us into serfs. The 17th cuts the nuts off the States. The Empire uses them against us. It uses the Constitution against us. So stop bellyaching about the words you don't like.

I've been on the receiving end of "if you don't vote for A, you're voting for B" and have always rejected it. No, the only way I vote for B is by actually voting for B. Voting third party or not voting are not the same things. This is a rare occasion where I could use that argument myself against the #NeverTrumpers, but I won't. Individual voters have to make their own decisions. You gotta do what you gotta do. But "conservative pundits" like Kristol deserve nothing but contempt.

1201 The difference between us is that, despite the Heritage Foundation list, I do not believe that Trump will put anyone on the court who respects my rights either... and you really think Trump won't go after perceived enemies with the full (illegal) weight of every government agency at his disposal? Posted by: redbanzai at May 31, 2016 11:24 PM (nUJM6) I think he will be watched a hell of a lot closer than Hillary would be. That is a lot of the problem right there. The media in general has shown that they are all in, no matter what the guy with a D in his name does. Like I said, I can understand your decision. Everyone has to live with themselves. Do what you think is right- that is all anyone can do.

1234 BTW the Constitution is a contract. How many Americans leaders (political, business, intellectual) are actually upholding it anymore? Heck you have whole American cities that have actually invited illegals into the country and help them circumvent federal law. I guess city rights trump federal rights and federal rights trump state rights...bizarre. In the old days what SF is doing was call insurrection. We have one political party is actually trying to transform the country (aka destroy the country) into a communist utopia without any constitution. Many in the opposition political party think Syrian democracy, a labor shortage, and free trade are the most important issues facing the country, not saving the constitution or protecting the borders of the nation. Many of the Libertarians and "Conservatarians" are all too "high minded" to save themselves from danger, much less the constitution. They think saving the constitution is about waxing poetic about the Federalist Papers, and having semi-erotic dreams about Thomas Jefferson. Of course they see the danger to their favorite document, but their opposition to that danger is the same that pacifist Christians (like the Pope) give to Jihadists. Then you have Glenn Beck, and people like him...I won't go any further other than to say "don't go further". The only real hope for the constitution (and thus the country) is a American nationalistic movement that can somehow come to preserve most of the constitution, and embrace much of it, yet allow that movement to still be ruthless and sometimes do semi-unconstitutional things to save the constitution. For example: I don't think the founding fathers dreamed the constitution would be used to justify allowing hostile people to actually invade the country based on religious freedom. Nationalism + Constitution = Country. It is the nationalism part that is failing, and failing badly. Once Nationalism is gone, that old paper will be of little use except in drafting another constitution for a new country in the future.

However i wonder if Davids actual immigration policy might end up more consevative then what we will actually get from Trump. I expect trumps actual policies to be his brand of blue collar democrat but mixed with "deal-making." If we can't win blacks from the party of kkk i don't expect well win Hispanics in large numbers. The lefts turming into central American socialist anyway so it's a natural partnership. This gope presumption that Tge bush relection numbers of hispanics are reobtainable are delusional. Hispanics are long gone for the foreseeable future. There is lots of blame to go around but regardless while conservatives and gope bickered about immigration the left drove the race wedge and made hay and now it's done. But, even if we deported every single person, the lefts control of media, education, and government will still be our real extinction threat. Immigration helps them lock down ekections easier but wont change our nations direction.

1261 French could be more than a spoiler candidate. If Lisa Murkowski could win as a write in only, French could win in the handful of states he would need to win the general. Besides, it is very possible that the increasingly unhinged Trump will implode and French would be the only rational choice left standing. If French gets in and starts to get over the 15% he needs to qualify for the debates, Trump may come unglued. Trump cannot handle being humiliated, and humiliated he will be if French gets traction. Ted Cruz lost because: A. He allowed himself to be labeled the "Evangelical" candidate and turned way too many of those who naturally would have voted for him off. B. Cruz did not offer a strong enough of an economic plan. This election should be about the ECONOMY STUPID! with 17 million people dropped from the workforce, male employment at it's lowest level EVER, small businesses dropping like flies to the tune of 30-50,000 a year net net.

1262 Does anyone really think that being a JAG is some great sacrifice on behalf of your country?

Dude, all my heroes are lawyers because they are so awesome and have done so much for this country.  It's about time more lawyers got involved in government.

Those Special Forces pansies wouldn't last a day in the JAG.  You have to read, like alot.  Books and legal papers and stuff.  You get eye-strain, and the paper cuts are murder!   And sometimes you get a sore throat because you have to talk for a long time. 

But if you can reach down deep inside yourself and make it, you can get a nice cushy job in a law office after your hitch.  I mean, after the nice cushy job in a law office you had in the "service."  You just get paid more and the coffee is better.

It takes more than most men have to give, but by God, somebody has to do it!

1263 CONTINUED The economy cannot turn around unless we can bring back small business. Small business is being mauled by two things: A. Impossibly difficult and stifling government regulation. B. Lack of Financing Both those problems have their roots in an unconstitutional grab for power by the FED, the Federal Administrative Law agencies, unaccountable State agencies and way out of control local bureaucracies. These unaccountable Federal Adminstrative Law agencies are flat out unconstitutional and specifically outlawed in Constitution. They should be gone immediately. All regulation meaning - all laws - must be approved by Congress. Politically Correct, fascist edicts handed down from on high from the IRS, EPA, Dept. of Education, Dept of Interior or the Justice Department, et al, that have been destroying our liberties and ruining the economy are simply illegal. End of Story. The FED needs to be reined in, and with it the FED's cozy incestuous relationship with the Big Banks. The FED has created a post-capitalist economy ,where with it's many subsidies and other crony goodies to the Big Banks, the Fed has created a situation where the Banks no longer have to lend to survive, and lend they don't. Financing a start has become nearly impossible. If we cannot create new start ups our economy will collapse in the very near future, and collapsing we are. But it not just Federal agencies that are creating problems. State and Local Agencies all across the country have gone rogue. Running roughshod over our liberties, particularly property rights have become standard operating procedure. Very few people understand that there is often very little realistic recourse once you have been raped by a local agency, and so the raping continues on and on with no end in sight. Only a President that will enforce the Constitution and the Takings Clause can end it. We need that President. Unless you bring back small business, you can kiss the American economy good bye.

1264 Doesn't the center-right ALREADY have an alternative ticket? The Libertarians have two former GOP governors on their ticket! And I'm sure they are open-borders type of guys. Being open-borders isn't enough. Evidently you have to be neocon in the foreign policy arena to get Bill Kristol's support.

1265 A week ago French begged Mittens to run again on NRO. That's "conservative"? No, a thousand times no, to the French.

1266 He is a veteran. I assume keeping Donald Trump from becoming commander of the Death Star (Pentagon) is more important to him than just about anything else. Thus, he will be happy to run as a spoiler. Not for love of Hillary, but out of duty.

1267 Mass Kristol ridicule FTW. Maybe we should start a GoFundMe page for #nevertrump to keep this party going until all the neocon trash is disgraced beyond repair.
