Washington (CNN)Fifty prominent Republican foreign policy and national security experts -- many veterans of George W. Bush's administration -- have signed a letter denouncing Donald Trump's presidential candidacy and pledging not to vote for him.

The letter, first reported by The New York Times Monday, warns: "We are convinced that in the Oval Office, he would be the most reckless President in American history."

Its signatories include former CIA and National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden, former Director of National Intelligence and Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte and Eric Edelman, who was Vice President Dick Cheney's national security adviser and has worked closely with Michele Flournoy -- a candidate for secretary of defense in a prospective Clinton administration -- to forge a centrist group of defense experts on key military issues.
It also includes two Homeland Security secretaries under Bush, Tom Ridge and Michael Chertoff, and Robert Zoellick, a former World Bank president, U.S. trade representative and deputy secretary of state.
Trump's campaign responded with a statement from Trump denouncing the signatories as people who deserve the "blame for making the world such a dangerous place."

The Daily 202: Why some Republican politicians are really coming out against Trump

THE BIG IDEA:

-- The most important storyline of August is how many Republicans come out against their party’s nominee. If the base fractures, Donald Trump is doomed. So far, while a string of elites and vulnerable incumbents in blue states have defected, the grass roots has mostly — if reluctantly — coalesced.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine announces in a new op-ed for The Post that she will not vote for Trump. The centrist cites his mocking of a disabled reporter, his attacks on a federal judge over his Mexican heritage and his feud with the Muslim American parents of an Army captain killed in Iraq. (Read her full piece here.)

Fifty former national security officials who served in Republican administrations signed an open letter, released yesterday, saying they will not support Trump because “he would be the most reckless President in American history.

I would only defend one of those foot in mouth moments. Trump wondered if the Muslim mother was not allowed to speak, her presence being enough. So the question here is, why would any one suppose such a thing? Would it be this?: A woman with her daughter were waiting to take a plane. She went to the airport counter to ask if there was a delay. The answer to her was, "Your're a woman. Get Away!" as told by the woman on Fox news. I can bring a long list of how woman under Middle East law are treated as chattel. Let's not forget little daughters and wives who have been murdered by the male member chosen to do that in their family here in the united States. I would wonder myself about that. Trump says it if it is a thought.

And wouldn't you know it, they finally played their card...

Remember this?

Mitt Romney Met Privately With Never-Trumper Bill Kristol to Discuss Third Party Run
May. 6, 2016

Donald Trump may be the presumptive Republican nominee for president, but the Never Trump movement marches on.

Though he has insisted he’s uninterested in a third party candidacy, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is being courted by Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, a prominent Republican leader and outspoken Never-Trumper, to reconsider, and launch an independent campaign for the White House, the Washington Post reported Friday.

Mitt Romney ends recruiting efforts for an independent candidate
May 19, 2016

Mitt Romney won't launch a third-party presidential campaign of his own and has stopped trying to recruit somebody else to do it.

The 2012 Republican nominee had attempted to recruit a challenger toDonald Trump and Hillary Clinton. But prospects like Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said no, and Romney is now dropping his efforts, a source familiar with Romney's thinking told CNN. The news was first reported by Yahoo News.

It's the latest blow to the "Never Trump" movement -- a group of conservatives led by Romney, blogger Erick Erickson and The Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol -- to find an alternative to Trump.​

Romney Makes Official Announcement About Third-Party Candidacy To Take On Trump
June 10, 2016

Mitt Romney, excoriated for months by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as a failed candidate for the way in which he conducted his 2012 GOP campaign for president, attacked Trump again Friday but said he will not enter this year’s race as a third-party candidate to take on the billionaire.

Romney, who energized the party’s #NeverTrump movement in March by lambasting Trump’s policies and character, also indicated he would never vote for Trump for president and said he was looking with interest at the platform of Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson.​

Evan McMullin, Anti-Trump Republican, Mounts Independent Presidential Bid
August 8, 2016

Evan McMullin, a former C.I.A. official and a Republican who passionately opposes Donald J. Trump, announced Monday that he would run for president as an independent candidate.

Mr. McMullin, who until recently worked on policy development with the House Republican Conference, has missed the ballot-access deadlines in more than two dozen states. But Mr. McMullin, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, studied in Utah and could take votes from Mr. Trump in the heavily Mormon state.​

Anti-Trump conservatives recruit candidate for WH bid
August 8, 2016

Conservative Republicans have recruited a former CIA staffer and top House GOP aide to launch an independent White House bid -- and he could cause problems for Donald Trump in a key state if he gets on the ballot.

Evan McMullin opened his bid for the White House Monday morning, announcing on his website: "It's never too late to do the right thing. And if we work together, there's nothing we can't achieve."​

What's the random chance that Mitt Romney was looking for someone to challenge Trump as a third party candidate, and it just so happens that one pops up after the massive GOP revolt, that also happens to be Mormon?

And he received immediate Maim Stream Media air time...



If he gets more traction over Jill Stein or Gary Johnson, the stench would be worse than foot fungus on chitterlings salad.

Removed Goldman Sachs, United Nations, note Ben Sasse was considered by Romney as a potential choice to oppose Trump... and below it, why would Evan retweet a post along with that reply?

He might want to remove that as well.


Never elected, ex-CIA & Goldman Sachs: Meet Evan McMullin, the 'Never Trump' 3rd-party candidate
August 8, 2016

Evan McMullin, a 40-year-old conservative former intelligence operative, will run against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, with the help of an NGO dedicated to getting him on the ballot in every state due to vote in November.​

It is interesting that the GOP is desperately trying to fight against their own nominee...LOL

There were people who said that Trump was only in the race to deliver the presidency to Hillary in the first place. And, I have to wonder if there was any truth to that.

I don't see McMullin as anymore of a threat than the gang of Rethuglican nominees that lost to Trump already. But, maybe at this stage he will cause further division in the Rethuglican base, and give the Dems a better standing....?

The Libertarian Party Has Qualified for 39 More Ballots Than Evan McMullin

Green Party has confirmed 27 states so far; meanwhile the latest #NeverTrumper is about to start off his presidential campaign 0 for 33

As Nick Gillespie
pointed out here earlier, latest #NeverTrump heartthrob Evan McMullin, who is trying to maintain at least a toehold of government influence for Goldman Sachs and the CIA, has a 26-state problem. Which is to say, he is already 0 for 26 in getting his name on state ballots as a candidate for president. But it's actually much worse than that.

Tomorrow is the ballot-access deadline for Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Ohio, and the District of Columbia. That's right, in a little more than 24 hours, Bill Kristol's Great New Hope will likely start off his Electoral College career 0 and 33*.

"I've known from the beginning of all of these rumblings of an independent #NeverTrump candidate that they would run into all of the ballot access barriers that Republicans and Democrats have been putting up to suppress the Libertarians for years," Nicholas Sarwark, chair of the Libertarian National Committee, told me today via Direct Message. "If the latest white knight wants to spend Republican donor money to sue to break down unconstitutional ballot access barriers, I'm happy to let him do so."
