Former CIA officer to launch campaign to challenge Donald Trump for the conservative vote.

Courtesy of ABC News:

Evan McMullin, a former CIA counterterrorism officer, will run for president as a third-party conservative alternative to Donald Trump, GOP operatives working to back the candidate told ABC News today. 

The group, Better for America, a 501(c)(4) organization that cannot officially endorse or back McMillan's bid, has been working for months on trying to select a candidate and get on ballots throughout the country. In some states, like Texas, they will likely have to sue to get on the ballot. 

It's an extreme uphill climb, but they are confident McMullin, 40, can act as a disruptor who they hope can peel off some red states in a race where some Republicans are still resistant to Donald Trump.

McMullin’s candidacy, backed by some Republicans, shows how the “Never Trump” movement is still working to upend Trump even with less than three months left until the general election. McMullin may be a long shot, but will have a legitimate organization behind him.

Apparently this first leaked on Morning Joe today:
Okay look I am all for anything that helps Hillary win the general, and trust me this will, but haven't we already seen this movie?

      Imagine the fate of federal lands, national parks and lands sacred to Native Americans should Donald Trump ever become president. His son has said that he wants to be Secretary of the Interior.

    What a hoot! This guy is even less qualified than David French. Plus he looks like he just graduated from fifth grade.

    It's too bad that David French's eyes like to cuddle up so close to his nose. Boy that man is a dog.

  5. I am considered one of the top experts of ballot access, he has no chance, thats what ballot access is designed to do, keep people off ballots..he will have to sue in many states although I am writing this comment I have no idea how many states that PAC qualified him fr, I do know there are deadlines, every state is different...

      I found the Ballotopedia link below to be helpful. It lists filing deadlines for all 50 states, although some are listed as "unclear" some are established.

      Also there is good historical information regarding third-party candidates and establishing a campaign.

  6. If that boy/man doesn't look GOP presidential, well....well....welll

    So Trump's presidency is based on separating American born Hispanic children from their parents and sending the parents back to Mexico as well as getting his followers riled up about Muslims.

    So what is Trump’s position on Slovenians who illegal came into our country and married an American to obtain a Green Card?

    Something is not right about this.

    Trump In Hot Water As Complaint Seeks Investigation Into Melania Trump Immigration History

    By Jason Easley on Mon, Aug 8th, 2016 at 11:49

    An anti-Trump super PAC has announced that they are filing paperwork with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection asking for a full investigation into whether Melania Trump violated US immigration laws.

    In a statement the Democratic Coalition Against Trump announced:

    The Democratic Coalition Against Trump announced today that it is filing paperwork requesting an immediate and thorough investigation by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to determine whether Melania Trump, wife of the Republican nominee for President of the United States, violated our nation’s immigration laws.

    The move comes after numerous media stories have called into question whether Mrs. Trump entered the U.S. legally and whether she illegally held employment while in the U.S. on a visa for non-working visitors.

    Last week, the Coalition announced that it would file a request for documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to bring the truth about Mrs. Trump’s immigration status into public view. This latest move is intended to ensure that the public can find out, before the November election, whether Mr. Trump and his wife have violated our nation’s immigration laws.

    “Donald Trump has been very vocal about his proposal to forcefully deport more than 12 million undocumented immigrants from our country,” said Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the super PAC. “But ever since serious questions first arose about whether his own wife may have been an illegal immigrant, the reality TV star has been uncharacteristically tight-lipped. We’re filing this complaint because we believe that the public has the right to know if the Republican presidential nominee is a complete hypocrite.”

    Melania Trump’s own version of her immigration history is riddled with inconsistencies. Mrs. Trump’s statements contradict each other, and it’s telling that her husband and his presidential campaign remained stone cold silent on the matter.

    Opinion: Melania's Immigration Controversy Points to Trump's Hypocrisy

    Slovenia, we have a problem....

    They also highlight the hypocrisy of her husband Donald Trump, who has made a hardline stance on illegal immigration the cornerstone of his presidential campaign. How ironic that there is now widespread speculation that Melania Trump herself was once an undocumented worker.

    Traitor Trump was here in Detroit today, the bozo does not know his audience. He spoke at the Detroit Economic Club, these are the creme della creme of the business leaders.

    Bozo Trump went on and on about being against the TPP which would send "jobs" overseas. Well if he knew who he was speaking to, they are fine sending auto jobs overseas, as long as they are making a profit. It is CEOs sending jobs overseas not the government.

    There were protesters booing a lot of his speech, but the local news didn't mention who was booing.

    Also, Ivanka, the architect of his economic plan, said Trump is for all Americans, when asked what should the largest Muslim population in the USA (Dearborn MI) think about the Donald presidency.

    Seems like she is contradicting the Donald's plan to ban all Muslims.

    Children of illegal immigrant mothers who are given birth in America, they are called anchor babies by Donald Trump.

    American-born child of undocumented immigrants

    “Oh, you want me to say that instead, OK? No, I’ll use the word ‘anchor baby.’ Excuse me — I’ll use the word ‘anchor baby,’” - Donald Trump
    Republican Party
    Presidential Nominee

    Excuse me Donald, what is Melania's first American husband is to Melania?

    Anchor Husband - When a foreigner or an illegal immigrant (non-US citizen) comes to the USA to find and marry a man for the purpose of obtaining US citizenship. The foreigner is allowed to stay in the US and enjoy all benefits available to US citizens. Therefore making the newlywed husband her anchor.

    Melania, from Slovenia nabbed herself an American named Donald. Thanks to Donald her anchor husband, now she can enjoy all US benefits.

    I didn't make this up. It is online.

    1. Anonymous3:30 PM

      Good question. Did she marry the first guy so she wouldn't have to do nude pictures with other women and she could stay in Amerika?

    If Donald didn't let his ego get the best of him and let his incompetent political brain tell him to run for president because the foreign born black man became president so he can to, then no one would know the better about Melania's naked pictures, pictures spooning with another naked woman or if she was previously married to another man in order to get a Green Card or that she told Donald she has never been married before or find out that Melania's architectural degree may be a fake or Melania worshipped First Lady Michelle's speech or Melania may have gotten a nose upgrade or whatever is about to surface. Now Melania can't even ride the escalators without feeling self conscious about her past. All this came about for nothing since he has no chance of becoming president. Thank you husband.

    A write in candidate for President? Along side all of those many more official parties? He won't peel off enough votes to make any difference. Johnson and the Stein will get more votes than he will.
