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!

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
