Conservatives Unite To Stop Trump On “National Review”

Dana Loesch is one of the Uniters to stop Donald Trump from becoming the President of the United States.  This group of people who are strict Constitutional Conservatives have doubts about the Donald.  They are skeptical of his past liberal stance, and how he suddenly flip flopped to be a Republican Conservative.  He hasn’t a record to stand upon related to conservative values.  This is the problem they’re having with his running.  He is also very egotistical, something we have had to contend with from Obama for several years now.  They believe he is a narcissist.

 Recently, Mark Levin called him out as a liar, related to comments he made about Cruz.  Levin liked Trump and supported him until today, he too has doubts about his far out emotional trends of rhetoric.

National Review, the conservative magazine founded by William F. Buckley, will publish a special issue on Friday opposing Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency, according to a source with knowledge of the issue’s contents.

The issue will feature a “newsflash” editorial that labels Trump as a threat to conservatism, as well as essays by 22 hardcore conservative thinkers from various ideological factions, in opposition to Trump’s candidacy, the source said.

“Donald Trump is a menace to American conservatism who would take the work of generations and trample it underfoot on behalf of a populism as heedless and crude as The Donald himself,” the editorial states.

The issue, first reported by Jonathan Martin of The New York Times, comes as conservative pundits and GOP leaders debate which of the two leading Republican candidates — Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz — poses the greater threat to the party.

Rich Lowry, the editor of National Review, spent weeks reaching out to fellow conservatives. His effort reflects a frustration among conservative thought leaders over the GOP establishment’s unwillingness to take a bold stand against Trump. While Republicans like House Speaker Paul Ryan and Nikki Haley, South Carolina Governor, have subtly signaled opposition to some of Trump’s policy proposals, there hasn’t been any aggressive effort by the GOP establishment to counter his rise.

It is also notable that the anti-Trump manifesto is coming from Buckley’s magazine, given that Trump cited the conservative thinker during the most recent Republican debate on January 14.

When asked to defend himself against Cruz’s accusation that his “New York values” were out of sync with American conservatism, Trump replied: “Conservatives actually do come out of Manhattan, including William F. Buckley and others, just so you understand.”

Personally, I don’t trust any politician these days.  I do go by their track record though. Mr. Romney would of made the best President since Ronald Reagan if the IRS and Obama’s low down tactics didn’t corrupt and corrode with the legal process as it did.
