QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, You are friends with Bill Kristol. So what is going on. He seems to be very much against Trump and is moving for an independent candidate. You know him. Any inside scoop?
ANSWER: Yes I know Bill. However, I would not say we are friends. Yes we have been to dinner many times and yes he spoke at one of our conferences back I think in 1996. Yes I helped him when he started the Weekly Standard. We took the back cover for the first 6 months of so. But beyond that, I would not say we are “friends” in the least and he was not so neo-conservative 20 years ago.
Now Kristol is in league with Mit Romney and Paul Ryan to create a Triumvirate in hopes of stealing the election away from Trump by forcing it into the House where they hope to save the establishment against the people. The scheme is not to win. The scheme is to prevent either candidate from winning enough electorial votes to throw the election back to the House. House Speaker Paul Ryan was forced to begrudgingly endorse Trump. However, Ryan is part of the establishment and part of the problem in Washington. He may have endorsed Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, but his office just last week said that he will not encourage other Republicans to support their party’s presumptive nominee. The “establishment” is behind the curtain cheering Kristol, but they are so out of touch with reality it is sick. These people are fighting against the country, the people, and to maintain Washington as is. This Triumvirate is exactly why 86% of “Republicans” are voting for Trump against the elites funded by their oligarchy.
I do not agree with Kristol. Yes I know Bill. I would not endorse his view and I believe what he is trying to do with his oligarchy backers, Ryan and Romney, is against the best interest of the people of the United States and amounts to a denial of any democratic process. This is the phase transition or bubble top in their pretend “conservative” brand of politics that washes its hands in the blood of our soldiers. With respect to “conservative” policies, well they had two Republican presidents since Reagan and they did nothing to reform the system and the debt still exploded from $1 trill under Reagan in 1980 to nearly $20 trillion.
I also know many other people in high profiles positions. I speak from experience – not from conspiracy theories. This is the end-game for neo-conservative people like Kristol and their oligarchy. They will lose all credibility and will be seen as dangerous people. They are in a state of denial exactly like Hillary and belong to an era that will be no more. They should go collect their Social Security checks and play golf.
