Apocalyptic George Will: If Trump wins the nomination, prepare for the end of the conservative party

If you look beyond Donald Trump’s comprehensive unpleasantness — is there a disagreeable human trait he does not have? — you might see this: He is a fundamentally sad figure. His compulsive boasting is evidence of insecurity. His unassuageable neediness suggests an aching hunger for others’ approval to ratify his self-admiration. His incessant announcements of his self-esteem indicate that he is not self-persuaded. Now, panting with a puppy’s insatiable eagerness to be petted, Trump has reveled in the approval of Vladimir Putin, murderer and war criminal.

Putin slyly stirred America’s politics by saying Trump is “very . . . talented,” adding that he welcomed Trump’s promise of “closer, deeper relations,” whatever that might mean, with Russia. Trump announced himself flattered to be “so nicely complimented” by a “highly respected” man: “When people call you brilliant, it’s always good.” When MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said Putin “kills journalists, political opponents and invades countries,” Trump replied that “at least he’s a leader.” Besides, Trump breezily asserted, “I think our country does plenty of killing also.” Two days later, Trump, who rarely feigns judiciousness, said: “It has not been proven that he’s killed reporters.”

Well. Perhaps the 56 journalists murdered were coincidental victims of amazingly random violence that the former KGB operative’s police state is powerless to stop. It has, however, been “proven,” perhaps even to Trump’s exacting standards, that Putin has dismembered Ukraine. (Counts one and two at the 1946 Nuremberg trials concerned conspiracy to wage, and waging, aggressive war.)

Until now, Trump’s ever-more-exotic effusions have had an almost numbing effect. Almost. But by his embrace of Putin, and by postulating a slanderous moral equivalence — Putin kills journalists, the United States kills terrorists, what’s the big deal, or the difference? — Trump has forced conservatives to recognize their immediate priority.

Citizenship is with the mother.  Cruz did not have to be naturalized, so he is considered natural born.  It's the law. 

Sounds good to me. I like Cruz but we've already had a fraud in the Oval Office. I wouldn't like another. When the next POTUS is sworn in. I hope someone would point him to what you just posted. That would mean an END to Barry Soetoro AKA Barrack (Nothing is ever my fault.) Obama and put a STAKE in the heart of the liberal left for putting that incompetent FOOL, Barry Soetoro AKA Barrack (Nothing is ever my fault.) Obama as head of this nation.

Never liked George Will; Trump 2016!

Someone should ask George Will WHY he gave Obama a dinner party at HIS home, when the dictator won his first term. Instead he spends his time on cable bashing Trump, Cruz and Carson. The man is just a pretend Conservative - always was and continues in that fraudulent fashion. He's a proud reprobate!

The RINO media lords of deception have dug deeper into their arsenal of character assassination weapons...they have not yet pulled out the nukes.

The left has barely ramped up the racialist rhetoric and street thuggery....leading to the racialist lovefest of hatred amplification using sympathy shields of hundreds and maybe thousands of kids driving thru their final hate speech...everyone hates you and anyone else unwilling to do what we say.

Hail Saul! Hail Saul!

If Trump wins then all of the DEMOCRATS and REPUBLICANS will stop him by no votes for him

The DEMOCRATS and REPUBLICANS not want him

I'm curious.  The title of this write says the "end of the conservative party" but exactly WHAT PARTY are they referring to ?  Dems nor Repubs are conservative. The only really truly conservative party is the CP. And that party (Constitution Party =CP) is very stable and not at all ready to 'end' as the write says, so what party does this writer refer to ?

I have trouble deciding who the more arrogant self centered bastard is,will or rove 

Oh puleeze George

Dear Will,

It is because of the Conservatives you represent that we are glad to be rid of your cooties. We will take the death of the current Republican Party "conservatism" and gladly escort in a new party. You may leave our movement any time you wish, and don't forget to close the door behind you.

And, take all your mega-billionaire donors with you. Our government is no longer for sell!

WTH -> Rosie O’Donnell Claims There Are ‘Over 100,000’ Concentration Camps In America

Actress and left-wing activist Rosie O’Donnell made the stunning claim that there are more than 100,000 concentration camps in states across the country, holding unaccompanied minors who illegally enter the U.S.

Appearing Monday on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live After Show,” Rosie O’Donnell was asked about the role she’s playing in Lights for Liberty, a rally being held July 12th to demand and end to what host Andy Cohan called “detention camps.”

“Yeah, the concentration camps, even though there’s lots of controversy about the word. But actually, legitimate scholars who study genocide say, yes, these are, in fact, the criteria for concentration camps, they meet them. There are over 100,000 camps in nearly every state,” O’Donnell said, failing to cite the scholars she mentioned. “There’s between 10,000 and 13,000 children, that could fill Radio City Music Hall twice. That’s how many children unaccompanied alone in these camps.”

O’Donnell, of course, was echoing fellow far-left figures like New York freshman Congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has spent the last several weeks comparing the oft-overcrowded Border Patrol facilities currently holding thousands of unaccompanied minors who illegally entered the country with adults to contraction camps like the ones that executed Jews during the Holocaust. Indeed, that comparison was roundly rejected on Monday by the United States Holocaust Museum.

“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary,” the organization said. “That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now.”

It is worth noting that the policy of separating children from adults and holding them in separate facilities was expanded by Barack Obama. It was his administration that separated thousands of children from their parents as a way to deter illegal immigration.

Rosie O’Donnell Backs Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 Bid — ‘She Knows How to Handle That Baby in the White House’

Rosie O’Donnell said she is supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

O’Donnell said, “Warren is my choice.”

She added, “We need a leader. We need a leader, and she’s been leading. Every time she opens her mouth, she gets more respect. Because she has plans for everything, she knows what she’s doing. And I think she knows how to handle that baby in the White House.”
