Bill Kristol: I'm Pretending I Would Like to Support a " " " Moderate " " " Like Ultra-Liberal Joe Biden, But I'm Totally Up for an Elizabeth Warren Presidency Too

I guess Pierre Omidyar's checks are clearing nicely.

I've said it a hundred times: Joe Biden -- who is not a moderate, but was just as much of a radical progressive as Barack Obama; white =/= "conservative" or "moderate" -- is the candidate they favor, because in their pretend world supporting Biden is "conservative."

But they are all willing -- eager, even -- to support hard-left Elizabeth Warren, and will do so as soon as it's necessary to. Or, in the case of some, long before it's necessary, to signal to their other grifter liberal kin that this is the next play they'll be making.

And they'll continue claiming they're "conservative." True conservatives, in fact!

The true conservatives who support Hillary Clinton and now support Elizabeth Warren.

He's destroying the norm that says that brash, uncouth, NOKD types should never, ever be in a position of power over the self-anointed "elites," who are so thoroughly convinced of their own innate superiority over the rest of us that the mere thought of someone like Trump being able to make a rule or implement a policy that they dislike fills them with a murderous rage and makes them even more determined to burn the country to the ground.

The Supreme Court fumbled another case they should have taken since it applies directly to a specific Constitutional issue. This time , the First Amendment and free speech.

You know, his father is Irving Kristol, probably one of the seminal so-called Neo-cons.

And though he is old, retired and now reclusive, he gave an interview a while back, and one of his comments was that even he did not understand what his son Bill was up to.

He was really puzzled by it all.

I frankly think Bill Kristol is about as phoney as a three dollar bill. There is a real cult of hate for Donald Trump, and I frankly don't understand the well spring for it.

Norms like pretending journalists are selfless, hardworking, hardnosed truth-seekers. Norms like letting political military brass railroad patriotic, selfless Navy SEALs because POTUS should be "above such things". Norms like acting as if politics should be left to blueblooded nepots and not icky workaday men.

Posted by: Bozo Conservative....outlaw in America at November 25, 2019 05:47 PM (vcOmj)


The well spring is the thought that if you're not "elite" you cannot run the country. You don't have the pedigree with the right people and the correct education.


For the left/elites/Kristols of the world, only they have the brain power to understand world relations in a nuanced way to benefit America. The fact that simpletons cannot see this further lends credence to the fact that the simpletons cannot possibly run the country. It's self-fulfilling prophecy that they run America.

What pisses them off about Rudy is that he was a private citizen while this went on, so none of the mother may I bureaucratic rules applied to him, plus he was working as Trump's personal attorney so he can lawfully claim attorney-client privilege. Plus he's legally justified in pursuing any talks or negotiations that would have benefited his client.

So they saw they have tapes of him talking to those guys. So what? As an American citizen who was not a government employee, he has the legal right to talk to them and to ask them about anything he wants to.

The moral case for physical removal of all leftards from this country's soil is ironclad and irrefutable.

The legal case never will be under our system of laws.

Every leftard piece of shit in this land had better be down on his knees every night praying that the leaders of his movement fail in their efforts to destroy the rule of law.

Without the rule of law, the legal case is moot.

Posted by: kallisto at November 25, 2019 06:10 PM (Z9spM)

No date as of yet kallisto.

I'll repost the 2nd e-mail I got from Rick's sister.
(sorry to repeat for all those that have already seen this)

I asked Rick's sister some follow up questions...

Her response:

Hi again Tami,

It's no bother at all. I'm very glad Rick could count on all of you as friends.

Because of Thanksgiving week and people having so many other plans, we decided to think about possibly holding a small memorial service in January, as that would have been the month of his 62nd birthday. He wished to be cremated and have his ashes spread in the backyard of our childhood home.

His favorite charity was Toys For Tots, so in lieu of flowers perhaps buying a few extra toys for the kids his Christmas season would've really pleased him.

Alas, the cat is my biggest concern right now. One of his neighbors has been taking care of him for the last several weeks while Rick was in and out of the hospital on a couple of occasions. We live in TX, and Rick was in PA. Sadly, the cat is 12 years old, not a lap cat (he is content to hide under furniture) and has urinary problems (he's on a special diet, but will not use the litter box, if it's not meticulously kept). I have called 2 rescues in the Philly area who were not able to take him, because they feel he is not adoptable. The social worker at the hospice gave me about 6 additional rescue organizations, which I plan to call this evening when I'm home from work. Hopefully one of them will be able to help. I have never even seen the cat. He seems to be in hiding.

Thank you so very much for your concern and I'm thankful how you and your group came through for him when he needed help.

Lxxxxxx


There is about $250 left in his meals acct. I could donate it to Toys for Tots or if anyone wants to adopt his cat, I could get that money to you for any medical needs. I'm open to suggestions.

280 To ace's larger point, Bill is helping with lefts' other big lie. There is no such thing as a moderate democrat, they're all lockstep open border, invasionist, race appeasing assholes who repeat whatever CNN tells them to say and vote in whatever manner Soros tells them. Biden is no more of a moderate than Sanders. There is no functional difference between any of the candidates currently running.

295 President Trump is Restoring American Democracy, not subverting it. They've gotten so used to perverted government, that up looks like down and down looks like up to them.

For starters, he's not wiretapping, framing and spying on his opponents as was done to him. And still is being done.

He's not wiretapping reporters and Congress like Obama and Brennan did.

He withdrew from the phony Climate Accord--we were the only country who joined without legislative approval.

He cancelled the Iran Deal, another One-Man Treaty, approved in the Iranian Senate but not the American Senate.

He shrunk the federal land grab in Utah that should have been a National Park, not a unlegislated "Monument".

He cancelled DACA which is a One-Man suspension of the laws passed by Congress and signed by presidents. And Sanctuary Cities, which are sanctuaries from the laws you enacted through your representatives.

He cancelled the extra-legal payoffs to insurance companies while legally expanding small business pools.

He's appointing judges who will umpire, not play.

He's exiting UNESCO, who wanted to control America's refugee policy.

He withdrew from the Human Rights council run by dictators.

He's making NATO live up to their obligations.

He kicked the Pakistanis who hid bin Laden off the payroll and told the PLO's Abbas Crime Family to get a job.

He's ending the Kangaroo Courts on campus and bringing back the Constitution to campuses, while eliminating the One Size Fits All- mandates of Common Core.

Not to mention ending all the life-sapping regulation imposed by unelected, unaccountable Blob-ocrats.

He got healthcare choice for veterans and pay-raises for military families.

His tax-cuts keep money with the citizen who earned it and his booming economy has lifted up millions of Americans of all backgrounds. He even got the postcard tax form, talked about for 50 years.

He's pushing back against giant social media corporations and their un-American shadow-banning and censorship of bloggers, conservative educators and congressmen, done in hopes of rigging yet another election.

He's rewriting flawed trade deals as the deals themselves permit. And doing so on behalf of American workers. And he may even succeed in getting Congress to pass an actual budget at long, long last.

And that's just a partial list. Every one of these items returns power, money, sovereignty and influence back to the American people and their elected representatives and restores each branch and level of government to its proper role.

President Trump is saving our democratic Constitutional Republic in spite of these flea-bitten Deep State hacks and their Media Pimps, not because of them.

And thank God for it.

I thought he said he was responding well to the meds for his pneumonia.

How old was he? I think he was in his late 50's.
Too young.

Poor dear.

He never once expressed any self-pity even though he was dealt a really lousy hand for the last 2 years.
Rickl's took his chemo treatments like a champ and seemed kinda optimistic through out it all.

I know Ace likes to say the shame is part of the kink, but even that's getting old.

The election was three years ago. There's no shock value in fake conservatives preaching communism any more. The shocking thing would be if they came back to Trump. A few have, a few more like to do the "principled two-step" where they say nice things about Trump and then dump on him, trying to hedge their bets.

Their day as 'influencers' is over, no matter how many seats they fill on CNN panels.

You don't understand - his ability to sit in at the big table with the payment that mattered to him most.

Time was, big-time pols would take his calls, listen to his advice, and he could go to a leadership retreat and get an audience.Don't underestimate the thrill of being there when a major debate is raging and telling the big shots that you'll start running articles backing up the new policy. I've sat in those meetings, and the proximity to power is a powerful drug.

Now, he gets nothing. No one in power cares what he says.

That's what hurts him most of all.

Yes, because they understood that the precedent would be used against them.

I guess the new theory is that all precedent is conditional; thus Obama's executive orders are immutable and eternal while Trump's are illegal.

For a political movement that has drawn its power almost exclusively from judicial overreach for two generations, this is a very short-sighted move.

Oh, I wouldn't go so far as to say that. He's not as evil as Obama, but he's done a lot of questionable, unethical things to make his family rich at the expense of others. So I'd say evil. I think he's one of those people who can con others into thinking he's not evil and then screwing them over hard, with a dumb smile on his face.

The Left is all about stealing. All their talk about social justice and helping others, is to enable stealing. So, they are necessarily all about lying, so they can steal.

They'll take your money, your property, your freedom, your safety, your peace of mind, your life.

This has never been more obvious than this election season, which stands out for disclosure of the awful truth even in this era of falling masks. Best economy in a generation, and they hate it because they're having trouble stealing from it.

Generally speaking, those we call NeverTrumpers are the face and voice of the Chamber of Commerce, corporate class that owned the GOP for decades; that is, until President Trump pushed them aside and let the deplorables in. Think of Mitt Romney, the Bush Family, Paul Ryan and the like as exemplars of this Establishment faction. Their European equivalent would be the British Tories, who really have no problem with the welfare state and a highly centralized and all-powerful federal government. They just advertise themselves as the better managers.

439 The Nov 16 chess thread is the latest rickl comment I've found so far.

He posted on the 18th.

"Hi, Horde. I'm back in the hospital again. I went in by ambulance early Sunday morning for difficulty breathing. Yesterday was pretty horrible, but I'm feeling much better today.

At least this time I have a laptop so I can go online."

But damn.

This really brings that to the fore, Jewells. I feel the same. I seriously want to hug everybody right now.

447 5 I appreciate all your kind words, really I do.

It was my pleasure to help Rick but, like I said above, without all of your generous giving and kind encouragement, it wouldn't have been possible. You all showed him he, in fact, DID have a lot of friends!

BTW, I think this was his last comment...it was the last one I saw at least (#756):

Yes. Yes, it is.

This year, as always, I'm thankful for all of you, and feeling especially privileged to have met some of you in person.

Zero chance this is accurate. Zero. The poll must have only been conducted in the homes of Ben Carson, Kanye, that sheriff guy with the hat and those two Cubic Zirconia & Polyester-Spandex ladies.

452 REMEMBER thy servant, O Lord, according to the favour which thou bearest unto thy people, and grant that, increasing in knowledge and love of thee, he may go from strength to strength, in the life of perfect service, in thy heavenly kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever, one God, world without end. Amen.

454 folks are right, Tami did a lot, and more than you probably realize, with researching meal options, funding options, etc. plus keeping in touch with rickl and not to mention gently coaxing him to accept our contributions in the first place. I think he was a pretty shy guy who was feeling a little overwhelmed that so many people wanted to do something, anything for him to bring him a little comfort. If it wasn't for Tami, it would have never happened.

God rest his soul. He was an awfully nice guy with the most cheerful disposition even when faced with a terminal illness. An inspiration to us all.
Posted by: bluebell at November 25


This is all so true but it think another thing Tami did for Ricky and in turn for all of us is she made him aware that even though we never met he had lots of people who cared about him. I remember Soithsayer ( I think) saying to think of us as his own personal Make A Wish. If ever I am terminally ill- I'm not- I think I'd find that so comforting. Thank you all.

455 Bill Kristol is a Goddamn liar, who uses words to mean their opposite:

"Democracy"
Democratic institutions
Institutions of our democratic form of government
Government institutions
Kritarchy & technocracy
Anti-democracy
