  1. Methinks Jonah doth protest too much!

    Just another neocon, retconning the world. Have we not heard enough from the Never-Trumpers?

    1. Kinda like the Trumpers retconning
      “Lock her up”
      “Mexico pays for the wall”,
      “It’s going to be made of hardened concrete, and it’s going to be made out of rebar, and steel.”,
      “I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA — NO DEALS”
      “I respect him a lot. I respect the FBI a lot,”,
      “Even President Ronald Reagan tried for 8 years to build a Border Wall, or Fence, and was unable to do so,”
      I can keep going.
      Can’t wait till “the worst generation” is out of politics, too bad the party of Lincoln became a victim of the
      “1. Identify a respected institution. 2. kill it. 3. gut it. 4. wear its carcass as a skin suit, while demanding respect.” (#Party of Jackson)

        1. “Yes, it easy to be irrelevant.”

          Hey it Trumps quotes, so irrelevant quotes from a irrelevant man. Who won’t have a lasting postive accomplishment to his name

          1. @engineer

            When I was in the military, if I did just a fraction of what Cankles Clinton did, Peter Sztrok did, Andrew McCabe did, James Comey did, Rosenstoin did, and what Robert Mueller did, I would be in Leavenworth. Why aren’t they in jail, “Engineer”?

  2. I stopped reading The Weekly Standard long before it went full Beltway because it didn’t seem to fill a vacant niche. It was less serious and intellectual than National Review or The Claremont Review of Books but less hyperbolic and populist than PJMedia or The American Conservative.

    The last straw was an article claiming that Jessica Simpson is better than Britney Spears. Not only was it strangely off-topic, it didn’t even make a strong argument for the thesis.

  3. Intellectual history of neoconservativism is almost pointless now. Much of the left and some of the right have turned it into an all purpose invective against anyone they don’t like. It’s the same way idiot Antifa types scream that Trump is a fascist but have no idea what fascism is other than “really bad politics.” Maybe they should read the authors best book.
