Trump Supporters Protest Bill Kristol Fundraiser In The Rain

Published

on

A handful of indefatigable Deplorables protested Bill Kristol’s appearance at a $300-a-plate luncheon for the Cuyahoga County Republican Party in Ohio Friday.

#NeverTrump town crier Kristol’s speech at the luncheon inflamed Trump-supporting Ohio Republicans, who remember the difficulties of taking on the GOP Establishment to elect Trump on John Kasich’s home turf.

Brian Wollet, an executive committee member of the Cuyahoga County party, had his Trump sign ready to go to meet Kristol and the luncheon guests.

Wollet described it as “A cold and rainy morning that felt more like November than May.”

Nevertheless, Wollet told Big League Politics that the protest was “fun.”

Cleveland Tea Party and Main Street Patriots co-founder Ralph King told Big League Politics that the public appreciated the protest, which took place outside the Marriott East.

“The weather was literally terrible. It was cold, it was windy, it was rainy. But we had a good reception among the cars that were driving by. So we were well received by traffic and the public. Friday morning, raining, nasty, blowing, I was happy with the response,” King said.

“I’m still floored that they had William Kristol to come in to address anybody. When you read this guy’s stuff or look at what he stands for, two things come to mind. The snobbery of the Establishment elite is why the American public rejected both the Democrat and Republican parties and elected Donald Trump. William Kristol, listening to him talk, you would think the Democrat Party would bring him in to talk. The way he continually criticizes President Trump? He should be used as a fundraiser for the Cuyahoga County Democrats.”

King pointed to Kristol’s current Weekly Standard article “After Trump,” which he calls “absolutely ridiculous.”

“William Kristol is a cheerleader for the Democrats. You know, being in DC, that the Democrats and establishment Republicans are the same. There’s no difference,” King said.

“The party was doing everything they could to increase attendance. Most of the people I associate with would never go to anything like this,” he continued.

“They don’t get why Donald Trump was elected. They think it was because of the Republicans. No! It didn’t have anything to do with you. Conservatism? That was rejected too. Ted Cruz didn’t win. People wanted somebody to get things done. If they wanted conservative ideology, they would have elected T-shirt Ted Cruz, the T-shirt preacher.”

Kristol, his preferred candidates vanquished in the primaries, led a harebrained scheme to run a third-party challenger against Trump in the general election to help Hillary Clinton’s chances. General James Mattis, now the Defense Secretary, considered Kristol’s offer but turned him down. After a lot of searching and speculation — involving Mitt Romney among others — Kristol backed no-name National Review writer David French for president. French declined to run. Kristol then supported the independent bid of Evan McMullin, who ran in Utah to peel off Mormon votes from Trump to try to stop the Republican nominee from reaching 270 in the Electoral College.

McMullin, known colloquially as “McMuffin,” and Kristol failed.

Kristol’s star has dimmed considerably since the Iraq War, a failed experiment based to a large degree on Kristol’s own inaccurate and dishonest projections. But despite helping to tank a Republican administration and fighting tooth and nail against a Republican nominee, Kristol still lingers in Republican circles, talking to people for $300 a pop.

Disgusting: ’20 Pounds’ Of Feces Found Dumped onto San Francisco Street

Published

on

San Francisco residents were left surprised and disgusted on Saturday night by the appearance of approximately twenty pounds of human waste left dumped on a sidewalk in the city’s Tenderloin district, at the intersection of Polk and Cedar streets. Reddit user SerFuxAlot brought attention to the public hazard,  on the r/sanfrancisco subreddit, having identified it from a report made on the City’s ‘Citizen’ mobile app designed for reporting crimes and other public disturbances. The report made on the app described the hazard as being twenty pounds in weight, and subsequent pictures of the disturbance posted on the reddit thread revealed a plastic bag of waste dumped on the street.

Although the odor of the waste made it a revolting nuisance to San Francisco residents, the waste remained on the public street until later that evening, despite the San Francisco Department of Public Works having been notified of the problem around mid-afternoon earlier that day by the original report on the city’s municipal mobile app. Another reddit user, Tulsi2, described the waste as smelling “like a farm or fertilizer or something. At least it was physically well-contained, but if there was ever a need for 311, this was it.

The latest account of squalor and filth on San Francisco’s public streets isn’t the only report of serious public pollution problems in the city. A survey of downtown San Francisco’s public sanitation by the local NBC affiliate located more than 100 needles for drug use and more than 300 instances of feces(unknown to be of human or animal origin) within a relatively small area of 153 city blocks. Despite being one of the per-capita wealthiest communities in the country- and an iconic American city known as an international tourist and film destination- it seems as if San Francisco’s public sanitation has reached a point where it might more closely resemble that of a city in a third world country than that of a highly developed and wealthy nation.
