Shock: Bill Kristol and the Most Cucked-Out, Tucked-Under Kristol Toadies Will Now Be Working for the Pierre Omidyar Website "The Bulwark"
🚢 🚢 🚢

True hardcore conservatives, gettin' paid by a leftwing anti-US Iranian immigrant.

🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢

MEDIAWATCH -- per Jason Schwartz in Morning Media: "'Bill Kristol, Charlie Sykes and a handful of other Weekly Standard castoffs have a new home: The Bulwark, a conservative site published by the Defending Democracy Together Institute ...

Defending Democracy Together is funded by leftwing tech bilionaire and Iranian immigrant Pierre Omidyar.

🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢

Sykes ... will serve as editor-in-chief and host a daily podcast. Kristol [will be] an editor-at-large ... Also joining them from the Weekly Standard: Jonathan V. Last, Rachael Larimore, Jim Swift, Ben Parker, Andrew Egger and Hannah Yoest."

The only one missing from the reunion of the World's Saddest Band is Senorita Steve Hayes. I guess he's still dreaming of getting hired by The Atlantic.

Ah well. He'll be workin' for Pierre Omidyar in short order.

🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢

Some tweets from the Only Real Conservatives in America:

I've asked before if Jim Swift was involved in Bill Kristol's Non-Weekly-Standard political operations. And if such operations included attempting to scalp-hunt Salena Zito-- a colleague at the Weekly Standard's sister publication Washington Examiner --along with some anonymous Twitter accounts.

The fact that Jim Swift, who is utterly talentless, is still clutching remora-like to BIll Kristol's belly despite having no clear skill set makes me ask the question again.

I have to point out: NO ONE IN THE WORLD would think they could attempt to destroy a COLLEAGUE at a sister publication UNLESS they had special reason to think a boss approved of this, or would protect them from the inevitable blowback.

He didn't even do this on the sly. He did it right out in the open, joining a Pressure Firing Mob against Salena Zito.

Why did Jim Swift think this was permissible? No one would imagine this sort of thing was permissible. But he did. And it turned out: He was very right. He not only didn't get canned at the Weekly Standard (at least not until the whole operation was shut down), but he goes on to continue sucking on Bill Kristol's monster titties.

He's never answered me.

I can only imagine he must have been doing something to make Kristol to name him First Toady. Apparently Cap'n Bill didn't mind his attempt to take out Salena Zito.

🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢

And oh, what a shock: Oliver Darcy, who received all kinds of leaks from Weekly Standard insiders, is again the leak spigot of choice for Weekly Standard personnel.

How unexpected. So out of character for this crew.

What a coincidence, that they keep going to a partisan leftwing outfit and never, say, a right-leaning (barely) one like National Review.

I hear the first issue will consist of 15 articles, all by Jeryl Bier, about how Trump's character is not quite up to Harvard Snuff.

Those never get old. They're the go-to article you write when you want to attack Trump but are too cowardly to admit your main beef with him is on substance, because you support the de facto open borders regime the liberal and corporate establishments agreed to without the approval of the public.

🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢

By the way: When the Weekly Standard was losing money and was told in no uncertain terms by the OWNER that he wanted the magazine to start earning its keep, Hayes fired the guy the OWNER wanted on the Standard (Larry O'Connor) to start bringing in traffic and decided to pay Milwaukee conservative-shockjock-turned-NeverTrump-shockjock Charlie "3-Wives" Sykes to come on to the magazine. And I bet he was not cheap.

How many subscriptions did Charlie Sykes sell, guys? A bet bunches. I'll just bet the national demand for written essays from the Milwaukee Moralizin' Madman (who has had three wives, by the way) was just enormous.

I'm sure it wasn't just some tribalist urge to give a fellow tribe member a job to protect him from market forces.

🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢

By the way, here's a math problem: If each of Charlie Sykes' three wives had a cruise boat, how many cruise boats would they have?

Please mark your answer below with a #2 pencil.

A) 🚢

B) 🚢 🚢

C) 🚢 🚢 🚢

D) 🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢

E) 🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢

Answer: C. If you were tempted to pick E) because you had seen repeated patterns of five cruise ships in the post -- well, that was the "Joe Bloggs Answer."

The answer is never "E." They only include an E to bait poor minority students into picking it. All white students are told in 8th grade, "It's never E."

Open thread. Oh, and of course, the resolution/GAINZZZ thread should still be considered active. It's the kind of open-ended post that can go on for a while.

🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢 🚢

Update: Will they now be admitting that their main objection to Trump is that Trump opposes their open borders agenda?

" We are conservatives and Republicans standing up for the rule of law, for free trade, and for more welcoming legal immigration policies. "

--Defending Democracy Together homepage

They don't quite admit they're also in favor of a "more welcoming" illegal immigration policy, but I supposed half-a-lie counts as a major step forward towards the truth for these jokers and corporate shills.

That's from Blonde Morticia. She also found this:

"Becoming American Initiative aims to counter popular misconceptions about immigrants, especially Hispanic immigrants, providing evidence of their upward economic mobility, educational achievement, language and social assimilation, and civic participation."

--The DDTI's Becoming American Initiative

Sounds like someone's getting paid to push the Open Borders agenda.

Hey, influence isn't peddled for free, Son.
