No Premature Surrender in the Battle for the Supreme Court

On cue, this Tuesday’s primary results in Indiana (which were disappointing to many in the movement) were met with a new call to surrender on the battle over the Supreme Court. Leon Wolf, the managing editor of RedState called for Republicans to immediately bring up a vote on Judge Merrick Garland. Wolf looked into his crystal ball and declared the November election over and said that nominees by President Clinton with a Democrat Senate will be worse than Garland and younger, so they will influence the Court longer. He doubled down on the argument in a CNN appearance as the media tried to give more oxygen to his arguments.

The argument is even more concerning since RedState has long been one of the leading voices for conservatives to stand firm on our principles and not surrender at the first sign of danger. In fact, Erick Erickson, the former editor of RedState, took issue with this argument and said even if you assume the Presidential race is lost this takes away a key argument for Republican Senators who can make the case that they will hold the line on dangerous judicial appointments. “Republicans rushing now to confirm Merrick Garland would just confirm that they think everything is doomed, anger voters who might help them keep the Senate, and further depress Republican turnout in November.
They should resist the temptation.”

CIA director claims secret 9/11 report pages full of hearsay, inaccurate info

John BrennanThis is a ridiculous claim. If this material were inaccurate, why wouldn’t it have been corrected? Why classify and zealously guard inaccurate information? The Obama administration is yet again kowtowing to the Saudis. The American people need to get the truth.

“CIA director says secret 9/11 report pages full of hearsay, inaccurate info,” Fox News, May 2, 2016:
Why does CIA director want to keep 9/11 report pages secret?
CIA Director John Brennan said Sunday that 28 classified pages of a bipartisan commission’s report on the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks contains “uncorroborated, unvetted information” that some could seize upon to claim Saudi Arabian involvement in the attacks.
Brennan, speaking on...

Wash. Post: Romney Met With Third-Party Advocate Kristol

In a phone interview with the Washington Post, Kristol said Romney "came pretty close to being elected president, so I thought he may consider doing it, especially since he has been very forthright in explaining why Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton should not be president of the United States."

"Obviously, if there were to be an independent candidacy, Romney’s support would be very important," Kristol tells the Post. "I wanted to get his wisdom on whether it was more or less doable than I thought."

"It was not like, 'You should do it.' I wouldn’t presume he’d do it. But I’m hoping that he begins to think about it a little more. His name is one of the names that is part of the discussion."

The private meeting was held at the J.W. Marriott hotel in Washington, just blocks from the White House. The meeting was requested by Kristol, an unnamed source close to Romney tells the Post.

On Thursday, Romney declared he wouldn't vote for the presumptive GOP nominee, or attend the Republican National Convention this summer in Cleveland. 

Dick Cheney: I Will Support Trump

Former Vice President Dick Cheney says he has always supported the Republican presidential nominee and will do the same this year, even as it has become clear that that nominee will be Donald Trump.

Cheney made the remarks to CNN's Jamie Gangel Friday, putting him in sharp contrast with other GOP establishment figures who have gone on the record as saying they will not vote for Trump.

Jeb Bush, brother of former President George W. Bush, whom Cheney served under as vice president, released a statement Friday saying he would not support the presumptive GOP nominee and real estate billionaire due to character concerns and his belief that Trump is not a "consistent conservative."

Sen. Lindsey Graham also stated that he will not back Trump.

The South Carolina Republican expressed surprise when told Cheney would be supporting Trump.

"Dick Cheney's a great man," Graham said, CNN reports. "We see the world a lot alike when it comes to foreign policy. I can understand when people want to support the nominee of the Republican Party. I would like to be able to do that, but I just can't.

"Maybe I'm the outlier here. Probably am. There'll be Democrats who can't support Hillary Clinton, and you know some of them will hold their nose and vote for her. Some of them will do it enthusiastically."

Cheney slammed Trump in a February appearance on Fox News' "Special Report with Bret Baier."

Politico reports that Cheney, in reply to a question about Trump's remark that he and George W. Bush had "lied" about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction in order to wage war with that country in 2003, said: "He sounds like a liberal Democrat to me, Bret. He's wrong, and he's I think, deliberately promoting those views in order to advance his political interests."

Asked then if he could support Trump if he secured the GOP nomination, Cheney replied, "I've said I'll support the nominee of my party.

"If he operates the way he's operating, sounding like a liberal Democrat, I don't think he'll get the nomination."
