Bill Kristol Announces That ‘There Will Be An Independent Candidate’ To Sabotage Donald Trump

Idea Follow Question - Public DomainIt has long been my contention that the elite are more than willing to do whatever they have to do to keep Donald Trump out of the White House.  There are many forms that this could take, and one potential option just became a little bit clearer.  On Sunday, the founder and editor of the Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol, announced on Twitter that there “will be an independent candidate–an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance.”  Kristol has very, very deep ties to the Republican elite, and so this is certainly not an idle threat.  At this point we do not know who the candidate will be, but some of the names that have been mentioned include Mitt Romney, John Kasich, Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse and billionaire Mark Cuban.  Of course dividing the conservative vote would be suicidal and would virtually ensure a victory for Hillary Clinton in November.  So why would Kristol and other Republican elitists want to do this?

That is a very good question, and it goes to the very core of how the game of politics is played in America today.

The truth is that the elite are accustomed to being in control of both parties, and that is why things never seem to change very much no matter who is elected.

But this time someone that the elite do not control has miraculously captured the Republican nomination, and this scares them to death.

So now the mission is to destroy the Trump candidacy at all costs, even if that means having the Republican elite sabotage the Republican nominee.

I wasn’t sure if they were actually going to pull the trigger on a major third party candidate, but Bill Kristol now says that this is absolutely going to happen…

Of course Donald Trump was horrified when he learned of what Kristol had said.  He responded with a series of very angry tweets…

I would be upset too.  For the Republican elite to purposely sabotage Trump and throw the election to Hillary Clinton is seemingly insane.  This is something that Ben Carson commented on during a recent interview with Fox News

Former 2016 candidate and Trump backer Ben Carson, speaking Monday on Fox News, echoed Trump’s warnings and invoked the 1992 presidential race as an example.

“A quarter of a century ago, another Clinton was running for the White House, and it was the entrance of a third-party candidate, Ross Perot, that made it possible for him to win,” Carson said. “Wouldn’t it be ironic if the same thing happened this time?”

Of course Kristol and the others that he is working with know precisely what they are doing.

There is no way in the world that Romney, Sasse, Kasich or Cuban could win.  But that wouldn’t be the goal anyway.  The goal would simply be to deny five or ten percent of the vote to Trump so that Hillary would win in a landslide.

At one time it seemed like such sabotage would not be necessary, but now polls have begun to shift and the elite are beginning to panic.  Here is one example of how the numbers have shifted…

That data and recent events suggest that Wall Street, which currently prefers former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to real estate mogul Donald Trump, may not get the president it wants. According to the Iowa Electronic Markets, a prediction online betting platform, the probability that we’ll see a Democrat take the White House in 2016 is shrinking fast.

“The Democratic candidate was all but a certainty to win the presidency less than a month ago—it was at 74 percent and it’s down to 58 percent today,” said Hickey.

In a head to head matchup, there is a very real possibility that Trump could defeat Clinton.  So that is why the elite feel that they have to make a move.

But we probably will not find out the identity of the third party candidate until some time in June at the earliest.  In fact, a source that is involved in this third party effort told CBS News “not to expect an announcement for a couple of weeks.”

So for the moment, we will wait.

But without a doubt, there appears to be a unique opportunity for a third party candidate in this election cycle.  A whole host of recent polls and surveys have shown that the American people are not pleased with either party at this point and that most Americans would like to see an alternative choice to either Clinton or Trump.  The following comes from the New York Times

The survey also found evidence of overwhelming interest in the presidential contest, although less than a quarter of Americans say they’re excited about it.

Worse, 55 percent of Americans, including 60 percent of Republicans and 53 percent of Democrats, say they feel helpless about the 2016 election. And two-thirds of Americans under 30 report feeling helpless.

“I am despondent,” said Cserbak. “I wouldn’t say I feel totally helpless. I do have a vote.”

Of course no matter who runs as a third party candidate, there is no way in the world that individual will win.  Any third party candidate will simply play the role of spoiler, and will throw the election one way or the other.

I understand that a lot of people out there are very excited about Trump.  And it would be very nice to think that the American people could actually elect a president that is not controlled by the elite.

But that is not how the real world works, and over the next several months we are going to get a very clear lesson in power politics.

If necessary, the elite will move heaven and earth if that is what it takes to keep Donald Trump out of the White House.  Anyone that would suggest otherwise simply doesn’t understand how the game is played.

    The example of Perot’s candidacy is interesting. The third party spoiler candidate is a part of the oligarchic playbook for controlling elections that goes back at least to 1912, when JP Morgan partner Perkins backed Teddy Roosevelt’s “Bull Moose” candidacy to derail Robert La Follette’s promising insurgent run against Taft and then, once the Republicans nominated Taft, ran a third party candidacy that elected fake “progressive” Woodrow Wilson, also funded by JP Morgan associates but principally by Bernard Baruch and Paul Warburg, who propagated the Federal Reserve idea and who became one of its first directors once Wilson passed it, along with the Income Tax. In his second term Wilson blessed Wall Street with the profits of imperialist warfare and world financial hegemony, and blessed America with a police state. In 1920 the Democrats lost by a landslide to the totally controlled, and crooked, Republican machine candidate Harding, who presided over the Teapot Dome ripoff of public lands and died under mysterious circumstances before the shit hit the fan. Blackmail is another political hallowed old tradition of the Wall Street oligarchs: Harding could be controlled because he had girlfriends on the side and an illegitimate daughter; compare Hastert.

    Damn Israel. These people need to get the hell out of our country. Kristol knows he’s going to end up at the end of a firing squad once trump takes office, because Kristol knows that Trump knows what really happened on 9/11 and whose fingers are in the cookie jar(see the p.n.a.c. Report/ white papers, online). You’ll see who planned 9/11, why they did it,,and with a little knowledge of Israel’s eventual, lofty goals of turning Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria(Damascus), Jordan and Yemen into a ‘Greater Israel’, you’ll see that these ‘ theatre wars’ ( as described in the P.N.A.c. Report), directly help serve the goals of all the filthy Neo-con Jews, who signed the document,,along with some of our homegrown favourites like Jeb Bush……….There are many of us who want Trump in power just to get these people to The Hague and then a line of nooses. Bill, you are a traitor (well, not really, as America isn’t you’re homeland) and you need to be prosecuted for the terrorist attacks of 9/11. You will fail. Like everything else with Trump, there is a rule; He is honest and because of that, he is Teflon to the attacks of the Zionist media and the Zionist oligarchs. Whatever you do, it will be flipped,turned on you, and it may just be the biggest mistake you ever made.

    Bernie Sanders running as an Independent could certainly win with virtually no threat of siphoning votes from one major party candidate, thus enabling the other to win.

  • JerseyCynic

    “…Mort Klein, who runs the Zionist Organization of America and is close to Adelson, told the Guardian that Trump’s point man for Israel, Jason Greenblatt, informed him several weeks ago that Trump was “going to go there [Israel] before the [GOP] convention” which begins on 18 July….”
    Oy! need an unseen app asap – ouch

    In the end who is elected POTUS is not that important. The die has already been cast–the American people are fed up with the status quo and will start to seriously revolt, each in their own way, against the system. This is the first time in my memory that both the left and right are united in their desire for major change. If lit won’t happen from the top then you are going to see increasing chaos social disruptions as the authorities will be questioned and undermined from all sides. The crisis we are facing will continue. A corrupt President Clinton will be the ideal focus of anger and the stimulus for either dramatic repression or the gradual collapse of authority.

    • Brockland A.T.

      No change to the electoral system, no chance of lasting revolutionary change.

    • nomadfiles

      seems like the authorities have been preparing for that eventuality for quite some time. the police have been militarized and behave as an occupying force.

  • The Neo-Cons are just loosing their grip on power and now are crying like little girls. I did not intend any disrespect directed at little girls. Besides Donald Trump is just like them as well!

    Dec 18, 2015 Donald Trump Is The Establishment Candidate

    While his rise in the polls is attributed to his challenging the establishment and the political status quo, let’s look at the many ways Donald Trump, when it comes to his political positions, represents that very same status quo. From the Fed, to war, to civil liberties, the “anti-establishment”? Trump takes no positions not already endorsed by the establishment.

      >> Trump takes no positions not already endorsed by the establishment.

      He did at first (regarding Iraq, NATO), which was such a “truth” departure from our “time of universal deceit” that many people overlooked his otherwise horrible qualities. But, since then he dropped names like Bolton and Kissinger, which thoroughly undermine his prior statements, and repeated most of the hawkish nonsense. Considering his earlier statements with the additional context, they’re no better than the “stupid war” comment made by our current “peace candidate” and “warrior president” Jekyll and Hyde.

      • You are spot on, and here is more for the flocks to chew on!

        Mar 23, 2016 Who is Advising Trump on Foreign Policy?

        During his tenure, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger oversaw several bloody coups and wars while earning the reputation of a war criminal. Republican presumptive presidential candidate Donald Trump met with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger Wednesday, the GOP’s preeminent elder statesman and a controversial figure who orchestrated bloody coups and wars.

          Unindicted war criminal Henry Kissinger is also Mrs Clinton’s mentor and trusted advisor on matters of foreign policy.

          • wunsacon

            I was just going to mention that. Isn’t it great that we have a choice between Kissinger *or* his mentor? As Carlin pointed out, we have more options for choice of ice cream flavor but no options when it comes to the most important choices.

          • epazote

            She’s earned the endorsement of ultra-neocon PNAC co-founder Robert Kagan, as well. Kagan is the husband of Dick Cheney’s former security advisor, Victoria “eff the EU” Nuland. Nuland was brought to the US Dept of State by Hillary Clinton.

            Clinton a “pragmatic progressive”?
            PFFT ! She’s a neoliberal/conservative on domestic policy and an interventionist, regime change neocon war hawk on foreign policy

    Trump can’t be beaten. If Trump picks a nationalist as vice-president, the elites will try and kill him during the convention. The election would be cancelled, Obama made president for life and a race war started against whites.

    • Brockland A.T.

      That’s for the election of 2020. Remember the curse of Tippecanoe?

      Dubya Shrub in 2000 escapes by idiots luck; he wasn’t chosen by the people but stole the election by court decision, so slipped the curse by technicality.

      Ronald Reagan escaped by good astrology, but he was shot.

      Just to be on the safe side, Reagan’s VP, Bush Sr., made Dan Quayle VP so no one would try and assassinate him for someone preferable when it was his turn to be President and make the tough calls, like not going all the way to Baghdad and keeping faith with peace and friendship Reaganism.

  • Brockland A.T.

    Its likely what Kristol means, is that the Libertarian party under Gary Johnson will split the GOP vote if Trump formally secures the nomination, assuring that the Democratic neocon candidate they already said they want anyway, Hilary, gets in.

    Its a simple repeat of the Nader/Gore debacle that split the Democrat vote enough to see Dubya get in by court decision in 2000.

    The Libertarians are likely to suddenly get a lot of positive mainstream press exposure and money to campaign, just enough to spoil any momentum Trump might have, lose, and so look as treasonous to the cause as Nader did when Gore lost. Two birds with one stone.

    Trump scares the neocons; he fires people for failure.

  • (Vorpal) Bunny Mop!

  • Traitor Bill Kristol should be swinging from a lamp post, Mussolini style.

    Kristol is just like WSJ editor Brett Stevens. Shills for Netanyahu. They are afraid Trump would asexually be neutral in the middle east and maybe broker a real peace.
