Hunter DeRensis talks about his recent article on Bill Kristol’s new publication, The Bulwark, which he sees as a direct successor to the Weekly Standard, and a new home for the “Never Trump” movement. The Standard made a name for itself by pushing for the invasion of Iraq, and more recently has supported America’s other wars in the Middle East. Because the publication opposes President Trump on basically every issue, they’ve been on the wrong side of his recent plans to withdraw troops as well.

- “Does The Bulwark Mean the Neocons Are Staging A Comeback?” (The National Interest)
- “Don’t blame Trump for the demise of the Weekly Standard” (Spectator USA)
- Project for the New American Century
