To Not Choose Is to Choose

I understand the Cruz supporters and Never Trumpers’ angst about Trump. He’s not a full-spectrum conservative. But remind me of all of our nominees in the past who have been?

‘Never Trump Is Officially Dead and Buried’: How Ken Cuccinelli, Mike Lee Sold Out Grassroots for Convention Floor Spectacle

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Ken Cuccinelli of the Senate Conservatives Fund and Sen.

Horowitz: The ‘Never Trump’ Murder-Suicide Pact

What Erickson and his fellow saboteurs, led by Mitt Romney and Bill Kristol, want is for the Republican Party to block Trump and repudiate the record number of Republican primary voters who nominated him.

Horowitz: The Never-Trump Diehards

One would have though that having failed to stop Trump’s nomination and then failed to find a prominent figure to lead their third-party effort, the beltway renegades would have been embarrassed enough to crawl under a nearby rock where they might ponder their lost credibility and squandered influence.

Geller: On Trump and the Jews, David Horowitz Is Right

As Jews and supporters of Israel, Kristol and Shapiro should know better. If you are a Jew in this troubled world, the contrast could not be sharper. Clinton’s longtime relationship with her top aide Huma Abedin, an observant Muslim whose father, mother and brother were all Muslim Brotherhood operatives, should give every Jew pause. Hillary Clinton’s husband sold out the Jews to Yasir Arafat. She herself has been bought and sold by our enemies many times over.

The ‘Never Trump’ Pouters

The conservatives who have declared war on the primary victor are displaying a myopia that could be deadly in November when Donald Trump will lead Republicans against a party that has divided the country, destroyed its borders, empowered its enemies, and put 93 million Americans into dependency on the state.
