#NeverTrump John Podhoretz Roots for Stock Market Crash to Spite Trump

Published

on

Wednesday, a member of the old guard GOP establishment — left behind by ordinary Americans after failing to conserve anything during a half-century of power — openly rooted for a stock market crash – which would surely crush those same ordinary Americans – so that President Donald J. Trump would be impeached.

“How many people’s hearts sank when they saw the Dow went up 1,000 points because they really hoped Trump had plunged us into a bear market that would cause GOP legislators to turn on him and support removal after impeachment?” said John Podhoretz.

Podhoretz was a contributing editor at the failed Weekly Standard, which #NeverTrump’d itself to death. Having learned nothing from the demise of that pompous, out-of-touch rag, he continues to fight on behalf of the elite D.C. establishment against the interests of ordinary Republican voters.

His Tweet came in response to the DOW’s record Wednesday. The market closed up 1085 points after a dismal Christmas Eve performance which had Democrats and #NeverTrump “Republicans” giddy over the potential to knock the President. The pathetic losers have been waiting for two years with bated breath, ignoring hundreds of stock market records during the Trump presidency (a demonstrably good outcome for ordinary Americans) for a market downturn that could sway public opinion of Trump.

Thursday, the DOW climbed another 600 points.

Given that control of the House of Representatives will be turned over to Democrats on Jan. 3, it is possible that Trump will be successfully impeached by the lower chamber of Congress. But for Trump to be removed from office, two-thirds of the Senate would have to vote for his impeachment. About 20 Senate Republicans would have to turn on the President.

Podhoretz and his elitist GOP ilk will continue rooting for a market crash to serve their ultimate end: spiting the will of the ordinary Republican voters who overtly and handily rejected their 16 candidates in the 2016 Republican primary in favor of a political outsider. Egos bruised, former GOP influencers like Podhoretz still have not recovered from their embarrassing fall from grace.

College Republicans Executive Director Condemning America First Chapters is a Longtime Never-Trumper

Why are these people in leadership positions in the GOP?

Published

on

An executive director of the College Republican National Committee who has taken to condemning America First chapters in the light of a letter from the chapter presidents calling upon President Donald Trump to end the H-1B and OPT cheap labor programs has a lengthy track record of opposing Trump, including taking a stringent ‘Never Trump’ stance during the 2016 presidential election.

CRNC Executive Director Benjamin Rajadurai slighted the College Republican chapters that signed the letter calling for an immigration freeze on Friday tweet, falsely claiming that only seven chapters signed the missive. Chapter representatives from more than twenty CR organizations across the country signed the letter to President Trump calling for the President to end the worker visa programs.

Rajadurai appears keen to dismiss the activism of the chapters, despite considerable support for their vision of immigration restriction across broad demographics of Americans. However, it appears he has a very tenuous claim on credibility when it comes to conservative policy, considering the CRNC executive took a strong ‘Never Trump’ stance during the 2016 election. Some of Rajadurai’s tweets indicate he was resolute in opposing Trump at the time:

The Massachusetts man apparently was a Jeb! supporter. Why is he even serving as a Republican Party official if he sees the Republican President as an ‘idiot?’

He saw Donald Trump as ‘racist’ at the time.

He saw Trump’s nomination as a great disappointment.

College Republicans and conservatives across the country expressed great disappointment to Big League Politics when learning that a national CRNC executive is a stringent Never Trumper who steadfastly opposes the conservative ideals they seek to promote.

Christian Secor of America First Bruins expressed disappointment with the alignment of CRNC national leadership.

I was always aware that there were problems in the GOP but I never could have imagined to what extent the Republican Party was selling out the American people. Conservative students from all over America are sick and tired of the way the so called “conservative” movement has been ran and, thankfully, the American people are ready for true conservatism, populism, and tradition, with young people leading the charge.” Rajadurai has endorsed an attempt to de-recognize and replace the prevailing California College Republicans federation with an establishment group.

The spirit of the Republican constituency was overwhelmingly America First, and Never Trumpers were left behind. College Republicans are increasingly having their nationalistic brand of conservatism stifled by these very same Never Trumpers at the CRNC,” said Eoan Harrison of the Santa Clara University CR’s.

Marshall Whinney, of the Bull Moose Party at Penn State, described what he had seen as pervasive Never Trump influence throughout national CRNC institutions.

Our organization came into being after our College Republicans held a secret vote against endorsing Trump in 2016 while classes were not yet in session. Our interactions with like-minded individuals across the country have revealed an alarmingly consistent pattern of fraud being used to keep Never Trumpers in office at many Republican student organizations.

Republicans striving to implement the Make America Great Again agenda that President Donald Trump campaigned and won upon have no choice but the question the legitimacy of official Republican Party institutions that appear to have little to no regard for the President himself.
