Many voters are under the impression that there is anti-American cartel based in Washington D.C. made up of the Republican and Democrat Parties and the courtiers that make their way from government to academia to the media and back again. I have no idea where they would have gotten such a crazy idea. There’s certainly no evidence for it. The D.C. based conservative movement is full of “principled conservatives.”
We know this, because they tell us. And tell us. And then tell us some more. Of course, some people – misanthropes and rubes mostly – are inclined to look at people’s actions more than their words. And that’s just rude. Especially when they went to the trouble of coming up with such silky sounding words that make you feel warm and fuzzy. Don’t you just love the way they say “Reagan” and “Constitution?” Delicious. And so satisfying.
Anyway, here’s an interesting tidbit – totally unrelated I assure you. Rich Lowry, editor of the noisily anti-Trump National Review met with Alexander McCoy last month to discuss the NeverTrump movement. You know, the group of “principled conservatives” dedicated to Trump’s defeat.
Who is Alexander McCoy? Glad you asked. McCoy is a paid agitator in the employment of the Hillary Clinton campaign. His only qualifications seem to be that he is available most days to wander the streets waving a sign and shouting and that he served in the military and is therefore a useful pawn in Crooked Hillary’s attempt to shape an anti-Trump narrative. Think “Veterans Against Trump,” etc. McCoy is basically the Ron Kovic of this election – a sad case willing to be used by politicians to advance their own election prospects. (Kovic is the subject of the 1989 Oliver Stone/Tom Cruise movie, “Born On The 4th July”) Hillary, the 70s are calling. They want their lame astroturf election strategies back.
Of course, reports of Hillary employing worn out electoral strategies isn’t news. They pair well with her tired neo-socialist rhetoric and race-baiting. What is news, is that one of her paid goons is coordinating with National Review editor Rich Lowry.

So why is Lowry meeting with McCoy and what does this tell us about National Review?
The left-wing Daily Beast reports on McCoy’s latest anti-Trump protest this way:
But the reality was more complicated. The protest was actually a coordinated effort, led in part by the Hillary Clinton campaign, to embarrass her Republican rival for his failed efforts to raise money for veterans. It only looked like a grassroots demonstration.
A spokesman for the demonstrators insisted they had no affiliation with any campaign. Later he said the protesters had reached out to the Clinton campaign for press contacts, but that’s all. Then the activist finally admitted that, yes, the Clinton campaign had helped organize the protest
McCoy was even caught by the Daily Beast in a series of lies.
At Monday’s protest, Marine veteran and Clinton supporter Alexander McCoy served as a spokesman for the demonstrators—and went to great lengths to hide the Clinton campaign’s involvement with organizing the demonstration.
“We’re not affiliated with any campaign, we’re not affiliated with any organization,” McCoy told reporters, saying the protesters used “grassroots organizing techniques, we came together over social media.”
McCoy later told The Daily Beast he reached out to the Clinton campaign to obtain press contacts but denied that Clinton staffers had been involved in organizing the event.
Then, reached by phone after the event, McCoy acknowledged that the Clinton campaign organized the conference call bringing together possible attendees to the protest.
Lowry has not commented on his meeting with McCoy, but this might be a good time to point out that bad company corrupts good morals.
