Bill Kristol ‘Hopeful’ James Mattis Will Be 2020 Running Mate in Bid Against Trump



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.”

Mattis opposed Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, and has consistently pushed for military intervention is Syria, which Trump has tried to avoid.

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.

Petition for Seattle Mayor’s Recall Election Approved by King County Judge

The mayor stood by as anarchists seceded from the United States.



A petition campaign to bring about a recall election targeting Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan was approved by a King County Judge on Sunday, potentially setting up Durkan’s removal from office. The liberal mayor has lost the confidence of many of the city’s residents, including liberals, after largely refusing to enforce the rule of law and the territorial integrity of the United States.

Durkan consistently refused to break up the dangerous Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist territory after its adherents declared their independence from the United States, responding to the presence of the rebel group with little more than smug potshots at President Donald Trump. Durkan only finally broke up the CHAZ after multiple murders within the commune’s borders, senseless killings by the territory’s armed ‘security’ that could’ve been avoided through putting down the secessionist project.

However, it appears that the recall petition actually opposes Durkan for opposing the activities of the CHAZ, claiming that Durkan was restricting protected political activity within the confines of the commune. The petition accuses Durkan of “endanger(ing) the peace and safety of the community” by allowing the police to “leak false information about fabricated crimes and threats to the media.” The recall also cites a curfew implemented upon the City of Seattle after the anarchists set up their autonomous commune.

Petitioners will need to collect 50,000 signatures in order to bring about the recall election, which is relatively unprecedented in the history of Seattle. It’s quite likely that a sizable population of Seattle residents opposed to the lawless and violent activities of the anarchists will support the recall, an irony considering that its organizers oppose the mayor for refusing to grant the street criminals special privileges.
