The publication founded by Mr. Conservative, William F. Buckley has taken a turn for the worse over the last few decades.
Closely embedded with the GOP establishment and D.C.’s intelligentsia, the publication has dwindled in influence to those outside of Washington and panders to the political elite.
As such, it’s no surprise that National Review has come out with a nonsensical “Against Trump” diatribe against the presidential frontrunner.
This is the same publication that endorsed Mitt Romney in BOTH 2008 AND 2012.
Mitt Romney, the first man to pull off his version of Obamacare, was considered “conservative” by this group of clowns that look to influence your decision.
Romney couldn’t even beat populist McCain in 2008.
Refusing to be haunted by their past actions, the editors of National Review punish Trump as not being conservative enough for their liking.
Don’t be fooled, the editors of National Review pull out the “conservative” card as needed to fit their agenda.
The real story behind #AgainstTrump is the reality that Donald Trump makes them look like fools and will, without question, diminish their future power and influence (which equals their pocket book).
Trump has run a rogue campaign without the help of the consultant class that swarms politics like flies around a Chinese restaurants back-alley dumpster.
The billionaire has been attacked from all angles – left and right – and the words of pundits and bobble heads like the National Review editors fall on deaf ears for a large swath of America.
The Trump attack, in the end, will do little to impact the vote in 2016, but will further their contempt among Americans who don’t need to carry a thesaurus at their cocktail parties.
In proper fashion, National Review shows its true colors by attempting to boost their subscriber base (and pocket a few dollars) with their attack on Trump.
Hours after the attack, National Review boasted of their “largest traffic day” while posting this at the top of their twitter page:

For a group of people who are responsible for enabling the establishment politicians who have spinelessly allowed American policy to bring us everything from Obamacare to knee-pad wearing John Boehner, they see their future influence of their publication swirling around a toilet bowl in Union Station if Trump were to become the next president of the United States.
