What Trump’s Allies Have to
Fear from His Twitter Feed

National Review, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:zoidberg, 1/11/2017 8:56:22 AM

The political class is still coming to grips with what appears to be Donald Trump’s novel management philosophy: Government by Twitter. Put aside the by-now-familiar weirdness of our president-elect’s gloating over Arnold Schwarzenegger’s poor Celebrity Apprentice ratings or swipes at Meryl Streep. Trump’s Twitter addiction poses heretofore unnoticed challenges for his administration. The president-elect often emphasizes the value of being “unpredictable.” And he has a point — in certain contexts. Keeping our enemies guessing has advantages. Defenders of Trump’s habit of jabbing corporations about their offshoring decisions will tell you that Trump is “setting the tone from the top.”

Comments:
Unpredictability has its pluses and minuses.

If Ryan doesn´t abandon the Chamber of Commerce and illegals (as in law-breakers), then he, too, is an enemy.

This reads like the "friendly advice" you get from people like Dana Mudbank.

Jonah hates Trump and that comes through in every article he writes at this point.

Trump pays his money and takes his chances with Twitter. I don´t like it, but it´s his show and the regrets will be all his, as will the successes. I suspect life will change come January 20th.

That said, Trump and Congress do not appear to have an agenda. Obamacare is a good example. Repeal...or repeal and replace...or what? Who is leading this, the President or Congress? What exactly is in the anticipated bill? Is Trump setting up Ryan for embarrassment, or vice versa?

Yeah, go pop some popcorn...this is going to be quite a show the next 110 days.

Sorry, Jonah - - much as you would´ve liked to see it - - John Podesta isn´t going to be Secretary of State.

Now go back to your delusional fantasy island - - and keep pretending you´re the last holdout Japanese soldier.

Maybe George Wiil, Dr. Krautz, Bill Kristol, and Steve Hayes will join you there.

FTA: ´´The political class is still coming to grips with what appears to be Donald Trump’s novel management philosophy: Government by Twitter.´´

It´s not management philosophy nor government by Twitter. It is called communicating via Twitter, instead of communicating through a based, corrupt and hostile media.

Doncha´ just love it?

Yep! He doesn’t rely on people like Jonas to filter his words into something they are not.

Eventually his Twitter attacks that point out the raw truth just may cause some “folks” (to use obama’s favorite word) to clean up their act.

Jonah needs to start realize that his unending hatred of Trump is dragging him (Jonah) down and doing no harm to Trump at all.

I used to listen closely when Jonah spoke, now, I know it will be just some more tire, unimportant anti-Trump drivel.

Sad.

When the predictable firestorm hit, Trump hied to Twitter to mock the effort as a distraction, earning a nanosecond of favorable coverage by killing the initiative.

Hied? WTH uses the word hied? The following is a quote from Michael Thau in The American Thinker:

The writing of a successful professor must be couched in the most abstract terms – it must be completely inaccessible to all but a few like-minded colleagues. Accessibility and practical import are the hug and kiss of professional death; they mark your work as unsophisticated and you as not very clever.

Jonah is a purebred, pedigreed member of the Cocktail Party. He is lost and is very unlikely to find solid ground again in his lifetime. I suspect that he was running the Lucianne website for a few days when the snarky cartoons were posted (Twitter Poop) and the Late Breaking News was that the California Vineyards had been damaged by rain.

Jonah, please, listen, almost all American families and households earn less than $100K per year. Try, really try to imagine that. They do not work for the government, they do not have cushy jobs with lush benefits, they will not inherit money or status. Then demand, by law, that those hardworking mothers and fathers, farmers, plumbers, builders, mechanics, pay $28,000 a year for health insurance for a family of four.

Goldberg misses yet again. A careful search will reveal the Obama administration first adopted the "novel" approach of governance by tweet. Remember how dismayed we all were when Michelle and certain State Department staffers were tweeting about and too foreign country governments?

Too bad for Goldberg, but then he´s been a reliable "never Trumper" pretty much all along, recent walk backs notwithstanding.

Jonah. You need to give it up. Trump is doing quite well, no thanks to your jejune and uninspiring advice. Thanks to your chip on your shoulder, I cancelled my Nation Review subscription. Wm Buckley you ain´t.

Jeff Sessions´ Terrible Truth
About Drugs Is a Lie
Creators Syndicate, by Jacob Sullum    Original Article
Posted By: zoidberg- 3/22/2017 8:55:01 AM     Post Reply
"Our nation needs to say clearly once again that using drugs will destroy your life," Attorney General Jeff Sessions declared last week. The main problem with that message: It isn´t true. Yes, using drugs, both legal and illegal ones, can destroy your life, but typically it doesn´t. By arguing that drug education should proceed from a false premise, Sessions reminds us what was wrong with the Just Say No propaganda he would like to revive. Sessions, a former senator who was the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Alabama in the 1980s, looks back proudly at his efforts, alongside

   

 

  


 
Trump Preserves the Export-Import Bank
Reason, by Jesse Walker    Original Article
Posted By: zoidberg- 3/16/2017 3:44:02 PM     Post Reply
When early drafts of the Trump budget started to circulate after the inauguration, the Export-Import Bank—one of Washington´s most notorious corporate-welfare programs—was among the agencies destined for the chopping block. Now the actual budget is out, and the bank has been spared the ax. The Washington Examiner´s Tim Carney reports that this "follows many reports from congressional fans of Ex-Im that Trump had been persuaded to love the agency, which primarily subsidizes Boeing sales." (Barack Obama underwent a similar transformation, denouncing the bank as "little more than a fund for corporate welfare" while he was running for president

In Georgia, reaction to KKK banner

DAHLONEGA, Ga. — The mayor was still home when his phone started ringing. The reverend was still down with the flu when he began getting one message after another. Valerie Fambrough had just dropped off her daughters at day care when she heard. “Have you seen the sign in the square?” a parent asked her on a cold morning three weeks ago. “There’s a Ku Klux Klan sign in the town square.” And, in fact, there was. Just past the old brick courthouse and across the street from candy stores and antique shops, a large rectangular banner was screwed tight

Word Games
National Review, by Kevin D. Williamson    Original Article
Posted By: zoidberg- 3/12/2017 10:00:14 AM     Post Reply
Every few years, a word or bit of terminology comes along and captures the political imagination. During the George W. Bush years, the magic word was “neocon.” For years, it was used as a term of abuse by the Left; later, it was adopted as a term of abuse by some elements of the Right. What they had in common is that neither camp had the faintest idea of what the word meant. “Neoconservative” was first brought to popular usage in the American context by left-wing intellectuals (the socialist Michael Harrington most prominent among them) to describe the thinking of

GOP Rep. Thomas Garrett Intros
Bill To End Federal Pot Prohibition

Rep. Thomas Garrett is a freshman Republican congressman who represents Virginia´s 5th district. But being a newbie from a socially conservative area isn´t stopping him from going big and bold right out of the chute: He has just introduced a bill called the "Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017." From his office:If passed, this bill would take marijuana off the federal controlled substances list—joining other industries such as alcohol and tobacco.Originally introduced by Senator Bernie Sanders in 2015, this bill fulfills a responsibility to create a level playing field across the country...."This step allows states to determine appropriate medicinal

Is the Military Really "Depleted"
After Years of Record-High
Spending?
Reason, by Nick Gillespie    Original Article

Last week at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Donald Trump said he would seek a "historic" spending increase to replenish our "depleted" military. And as Ed Krayewski notes below, the president will likely tonight officially announce a call for a $54 billion hike, which will be paid for by cuts to other parts of what´s known as the "discretionary budget." The response from at least one fellow Republican, former GOP presidential candidate John McCain? Not enough. "In other words, President Trump intends to submit a defense budget that is a mere 3 percent above President Obama´s defense budget, which

   

 



 
White House Expects ‘Greater
Enforcement’ Against States
That Legalized Recreational
Marijuana
Reason, by C.J. Ciaramella    Original Article
Posted By: zoidberg- 2/23/2017 5:35:52 PM     Post Reply
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Thursday that he expects to see "greater enforcement" of federal drug laws under President Trump´s Justice Department in states that have legalized recreational marijuana. During a White House press briefing, Spicer was asked what the Trump administration´s policy would be on states that have legalized marijuana, placing them in conflict with federal law, where marijuana remains a Schedule I drug. Under President Obama, the Justice Department issued a memo in 2013 instructing U.S. Attorneys to take a mostly hands-off approach to recreational and medical marijuana in states that had legalized it.

Why is Sears dying?

American Thinker, by Ed Straker    Original Article

Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why? Because the CEO, Eddie Lampert, is a guy with nutty ideas who treated Sears like a dotcom, conveniently forgetting that it has physical stores that need maintaining. (snip) It´s closing hundreds of stores. Others are in shambles, with leaking ceilings and broken escalators. In some, employees hang bedsheets to shield shoppers from sections that stand empty. Before Sears and Kmart, Lampert had no experience in retail. The big plan he hoped would transform Sears

A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a

British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is so New Jersey that her Secret Service codename is “Blueberry,” but what many may not know, is her grandfather allegedly belonged to the Mafia in the 80s. Jimmy “The Brute” DiNatale, Conway’s late grandfather, allegedly had mob ties and was a “significant criminal associate" of Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo – the heir to the Bruno crime family based in Philadelphia, according to a memorial service page and law enforcement officials who spoke to the Philly Voice. The page lists Kellyanne Elizabeth Fitzpatrick Conway as his granddaughter and describes DiNatale as “a reputed Bruno-Scarfo

In the last three months of the Obama presidency, significant personal information from and about the Trump transition was collected and widely disseminated at intelligence agencies, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. Dozens of intelligence reports provided to Nunes by an unnamed whistleblower were floating around during the sensitive transition period following the election, he said. The information collection itself may have technically been legal, but the failure to properly mask the information “alarmed” the California congressman, who notified the White House of the surveillance and dissemination of information on Wednesday afternoon. Many of the reporters present didn’t seem to

Democrats plan to filibuster Neil Gorsuch’s nomination for the Supreme Court, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) said Thursday. Speaking on the Senate floor Thursday morning, Schumer said Gorsuch -- who is three days into his confirmation hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee -- will need 60 votes to be confirmed. Currently, the Senate has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot support judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” he said. “His nomination will have a cloture vote. He will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation. My vote will
