Looks like The Weekly Standard is going to be asset stripped and shut down

Proving yet again that taking anti-Trump stances can cost you if you’re on the right.

Reminds me of some of the radio hosts who had to do a 180 and get on the Trump train to stem the bleeding.

I don’t think the Republican party is going to fare well in the long-term if the right keeps purging anything and anyone that doesn’t march to the beat of Trumps drum. But it really is his party now I guess.

We could always just become Socialists like the Democratic Party wants to turn America into?

Well, the easiest way to shut down Trump opposition is to take their jobs.

The thing is, those of us conservatives who are Never Trump don’t need a newsletter to stand resolute in our convictions. We can think and digest information for ourselves. Organizations like this may come and go, but we’ll still be standing here resolute to stand opposed to Trumpism.


Not sure how you made it onto that tangent.

Kick them out of congress, get them off the shows.

Won’t find any of them on OANN, once the faithful have fully turned on Fox.

Who owns the Weekly Standard and why are they shutting it down.

I believe moves like this are more likely to make the self-exile from the Republican party a permanent one though.

MediaDC, a subsidiary of Clarity media group who is owned by Philip Anschutz.

They’re supposedly being harvested for their subscriber base to boost Washington Examiner, another outlet owned by Clarity media. Seems like the people who work there feel it’s about their anti-Trumpism not playing well.

Yeah, that could be true. Then again, I really wouldn’t miss the GOP in my life

I know Tom Nichols jumped ship a while back, I do expect to see a few more over the next couple years.

If nothing else, it will be interesting watching the GOP trying to rebrand itself away from Trumpism after Trump is in the rear view mirror. Not sure they’re going to be able to manage that one.

I never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but Bill Kristol going rogue-he doesn’t really need a magazine or paper-is gonna be ■■■■■■■ epic.

Good luck with that, the changing demographics have fixed it to were America has no chance of being a fiscal-small government country. Look at the politics in states from California to New York there will never be another republican president win these states.

We will see less of Ron and Rand Paul’s and more Trump type of policies if anything.

I wouldn’t worry too much about the republican party. As long as we have the bat ■■■■ crazy ideas of the democrats, we will need an opposition party. Don’t worry be happy.

The mid term

60,000,000 votes for the dems 50,000,000 for the reps in house races.

Yeah it was close.

More dems than reps out there.


I never thought I’d say this, but I have been enjoying Kristol’s Twitter feed the last few years.

That is true. But they want to change the things that put us in the great shape we are in right now. They want to fix what isn’t broken. If they get the presidency, I hope they are smart enough not to screw too much with a good thing.

And I will be enjoying watching him fail. :yum:

Fail what? He’s already a success.
