Joe Scarborough reports that ‘multiple sources’ say a conservative independent will jump in the 2016 race today

I doubt he will be an “independent” as described.

If true this should rightfully kill the Republican party.

This dude?

Anti-Trump Republican Launching Independent Presidential Bid

Key players in GOP’s anti-Trump movement are preparing to launch an independent presidential campaign for Evan McMullin — a CIA veteran and the chief policy director of the House Republican conference — sources close to the effort told BuzzFeed News.

    It wouldn’t have anything to do with ending their gravy train?

    Methinks I smell a hint of desperation in the Repuke ranks.

  • Siphon those votes & elect Hillary now!

    Watch – we’ll find out it’s being financed by the DNC.

  • This is next if they’re not already using it…

    Evan who?

      Obviously (if the report is true) the CIA is sponsoring the new candidate. It would not be the first time the CIA has run its own candidate for the US presidency.

      Often, people think the CIA’s mission is to keep the US physically safe from invaders. That is not its job. The CIA is mainly interested in the health of the US economy regarding foreign trade. That usually translates into selling arms, which due to their high cost, go a long way toward balancing the US foreign trade debt. It also assists in creating ways for foreign entities to buy the arms from the US, which often translates into helping them join the international illegal drug trade.

      If the CIA is really sponsoring Evan McMullin for president, their actual goal is the election of Hillary Clinton. Clinton has probably been running guns for a while anyway. Donald Trump would probably shut down the CIA’s arms dealing and drug running, which keeps them in business. They can’t have that.

        CIA is always in tight with the presidency. If their presence is hidden, it means they like the candidate, like Hillary. If they do not trust the candidate, they select the running mate. One obvious example is George H.W. Bush as Vice for Reagan. They eventually had to shoot Reagan to stop him from his lane departure.
        Trump has not done any of their bidding thus far so for them it is desperate measures for desperate times.
        Ex CIA? ROTFLMAO, they or someone they trust to keep things in line are never very far away.
        Anyway, it is quite the charade.

          Have you ever read that Hinckley’s father was a close Bush associate and that he allowed his son to be turned into a Manchurian style assassin?

          • Cat-astrophe

            No, but does not surprise me.

            I always figured he was not just some hater but instead had help from high places.

            Spaced out like so many suspicious assassins and mass shooters. ( Sirhan Sirhan, James Holmes, for instance)

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I don’t know much about Sirhan Sirhan aside from the obvious Duran Duran joke I’ve been telling for a long time.
            It always seemed odd to me that he was a muslim since the mob had the most reason to kill RFK.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I remember one CIA candidate.
        George H.W. Bush.

    • So he’s like the American version of Putin?

    • ghost of benghazi

      Ex Goldman Sachs. Sorry I could not help myself.

      • Cat-astrophe

        The people who are always near the Presidency travel in a pretty tight circle.
        Kind of like a moth around a street light.

  • Seems the Republicans have missed the most important contribution of Donald Trump to politics (even if he loses the election) — liberation from Maoist politically-correct speech and forced public apologies reminiscent of the now defunct Chinese Cultural Revolution.

    Under the latter, “sins against Socialism” were confessed publicly and offenders were paraded through the streets where they were scorned by jeering crowds and literally forced to run a gauntlet of “the people” hitting them with sticks and other objects. After which, the offender was trotted off to prison. How is that different from today if one were to adapt Mao’s system to the electronic/Media age? It’s not, and if Republicans fail to recognize what Trump has signified then the Socialist political corrections system will be permanently instituted in the U.S.. And mark my words people will in fact be trotted off to prison.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      I don’t think Trump is going to lose the election.

      • I wish I had your confidence — for me it will make the difference between whether I continue to be a resident of North America or I move abroad permanently.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          It’s the crowds.
          He’s getting record breaking crowds even in places where Republicans haven’t won for a while.
          I watch as many rallies as I can.

          • I do too. But I’ll never forget what the Left did to Rob Ford.

      • Daviddowntown

        I sure as hell hope your right.

    A shill trying to save the bacon of DemocRat friendly east and west coast country club RINO GOP rent seekers ? That seems so wrong.
