A staunch #NeverTrump critic has reportedly been attempting to woo a high-level cabinet member in President Donald J. Trump’s administration into running against Trump in the 2020 Republican primary.
“[Kristol] wondered hopefully, in the interview, about the availability of Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, and James Mattis,” according to report.
Kristol, perhaps the most anti-Trump character in the world of establishment punditry (and consequently the most out-of-touch with ordinary Americans) made the remarks in May after a speaking engagement at St. Anselm’s College.
He has consistently bashed the Trump movement as non-conservative, though Trump’s results have been the most conservative of any president in modern history.
“The irony of this moment: The conservative movement is in moral and intellectual collapse, just when many of the principles that movement sought to defend (if imperfectly)–personal probity, rule of law, limited government, American global leadership–are most in need of defense,” he said in December.

One might think that after 40 years of failing to conserve anything using the Bill Kristol playbook of conservatism, he might have the self-awareness to realize that his opinion carries little weight.
He has also called Trump voters – all 63 million – insane.
“Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be president of a great country. Donald Trump shouldn’t be president of a sane country,” he said in 2016.

Frankly, Mattis has not been much stronger than Kristol as a supporter of Trump, though he is Trump’s appointed Secretary of Defense.
“Our country right now, it’s got problems we don’t have in the military,” Mattis said in 2017, clearly taking a shot at Trump. “You just hold the line until our country gets back to understanding and respecting each other and showing it.”
From a foreign policy standpoint, a Kristol/Mattis pairing makes sense. Where war-weary Trump supporters would prefer to leave Islamic savages in the Middle East alone, allowing them to kill each other, both Kristol along with Mattis would prefer to spend trillions of dollars and sacrifice thousands of lives (how conservative!) in an attempt to turn every Middle Eastern nation in to a Western democracy. It has never worked, but the bloodthirsty military industrial complex drum beats on.
Make no mistake – Trump has been hoodwinked. He let his admiration for the military get the best of him in appointment of Mattis. It it imperative that he find out who Mattis really is before Mattis can sabotage his presidency further.
Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”
Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.
A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.
Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.
Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.
A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.
In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”
Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.
A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.
The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
