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.

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.

Who´s Telling the Truth in
Washington? Anyone?
Reason, by A. Barton Hinkle    Original Article
Posted By: zoidberg- 5/22/2017 2:28:04 PM     Post Reply
If you are among the small cohort of Americans who want to know what is really going on—rather than simply wanting more ammunition to support your preferred political team—then you have a problem: It´s hard to know who is telling the truth. Hardly a stunning new insight. But it bears down with more weight now, because the public is confronted with competing narratives from what an English professor would call two unreliable narrators: the press and the Trump administration. Take the press first. It´s well known that, with a few salient exceptions, the media tilt heavily to the left. That

Rocker Chris Cornell, who gained fame as the lead singer of the bands Soundgarden and Audioslave, has died at age 52, and police said Thursday that his death is being investigated as a possible suicide. Cornell, who had been on tour, died Wednesday night in Detroit, Cornell´s representative Brian Bumbery said in a statement to The Associated Press. Cornell had performed a Detroit concert with Soundgarden that night. Bumbery called the death "sudden and unexpected" and said his wife and family are in shock. The statement said the family would be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the

Rand Paul: Sessions Misled Me
on Drug Sentencing
Reason, by Matt Welch    Original Article
Posted By: zoidberg- 5/16/2017 2:39:45 PM     Post Reply
Friday´s order by Attorney General Jeff Sessions for federal prosecutors to pursue maximum sentences on drug crimes drew a swift rebuke from the most libertarian member of the United States Senate, Rand Paul (R-Kentucky):"Mandatory minimum sentences have unfairly and disproportionately incarcerated too many minorities for too long," said Dr. Paul. "Attorney General Sessions´s new policy will accentuate that injustice. Instead, we should treat our nation´s drug epidemic as a health crisis and less as a ´lock ´em up and throw away the key´ problem."

Donald Trump Reportedly Plans to

Rep. Tom Marino (R-Penn.) announced yesterday that he won´t be the first drug czar of the Trump era. "Due to a critical illness in my family, I have, with regret and the utmost respect, informed the White House that I must withdraw my name from consideration for Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy," Marino said in a statement. Who will Trump nominate in his stead? It might not matter. (Snip)Only Congress can abolish the Office of National Drug Control Policy, but Trump can certainly slash its budget.

What America Taught a Murderous

The masked gunmen came for Paquito Mejos, a 53-year-old electrician and father of five, two days after he had surrendered to police in Manila, identifying himself as an occasional user of methamphetamine, known locally as shabu. Police, who arrived shortly after Mejos had been shot dead, later claimed he was a drug dealer who drew a gun on them. Relatives say the cops planted the gun, along with a packet of shabu. This is what Rodrigo Duterte´s murderous war on drugs looks like, which is why his critics were dismayed that Donald Trump seemed to bless it during a

Forget Reagan: Trump’s Tax Plan
Is More Like George W. Bush

In the run-up to today´s big White House tax-reform announcement, the question among many analysts was: Would President Donald Trump´s ideas look more like Ronald Reagan in 1981 (when he and a bipartisan congressional majority cut rates) or 1986, when they simplified the code? While Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, flanked by National Economic Director Gary Cohn, bragged that the administration´s plan was both "the biggest tax cut" and the "largest tax reform" in U.S. History (Snip) the more apt and less comforting historical precedent might be the guy who Trump never tires of bashing: George W. Bush.

   

 



 
Canada is poised to approve a law
legalizing marijuana nationwide
Washington Post, by Christopher Ingraham    Original Article
Posted By: zoidberg- 4/13/2017 6:22:57 PM     Post Reply
The government of Canada on Thursday released a plan to legalize recreational marijuana use across the country by July 2018. With a solid Liberal majority in government, the plan is widely expected to become law, but it would leave the details of implementation, including commercial regulations, to individual provinces. The bill’s backers framed it as an effort to reduce adolescent drug use and take profits out of the black market. “Criminal prohibition has failed to protect our kids and our communities,” Bill Blair, parliamentary secretary to the Justice Minister and one of the architects of the legislation, said at a news

Climate change” and “child marriage” are “interconnected” issues, said Chelsea Clinton on Monday. Participating in a left-wing discussion panel framed as a meeting for “social justice,” she was introduced as an “activist, thought leader, and change agent.” Using "climate change" as a euphemism for the narrative of anthropogenic global warming, Clinton framed the burning of fossil fuels as exacerbating other perceived social and political issues (emphasis added): “[We] carry multiple concerns in both our head and our heart. Just listening to the concerns around education and climate change, women’s health, child marriage, access to technology, all of those are of

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted President Trump´s budget on Tuesday, calling the overall proposal "dead on arrival." “President Trump’s $603 billion defense budget request is inadequate to the challenges we face, illegal under current law, and part of an overall budget proposal that is dead on arrival in Congress," McCain, a frequent critic of the president, said in a statement. The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled a budget that would shift $54 billion from nondefense to defense spending for fiscal year 2018. That´s roughly $19 billion more than former President Barack Obama´s last plan. McCain added that Trump´s budget proposal

Fox News staffers are growing increasingly dismayed as network star Sean Hannity and others continue to promote the unfounded conspiracy theory that Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer was murdered last year for talking to WikiLeaks. The Daily Beast spoke to nearly a dozen reporters, pundits, and hosts inside Fox News who all conveyed the same sentiment: Hannity is “embarrassing” the network, and the promotion of the Rich conspiracy theory is senselessly cruel to a grieving family. “ARE WE STILL AIRING THAT SH*T?!” one Fox News political reporter, who says they are furious that the conservative cable-news giant is

Following the death of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes last week, tributes were offered in print and on air both from likely, and perhaps unlikely, sources. But in the opening paragraph of a New York Times op-ed out Monday, Monica Lewinsky said that she did not plan to have her piece serve as another Ailes obituary. “It is, I hope, instead an obituary for the culture he purveyed — a culture that affected me profoundly and personally,” Lewinsky wrote. Calling it a “culture of exploitation,” Lewinsky blasted the environment at Fox News and other cable news outlets — where

A University of Hawaii assistant math professor who holds a PhD degree in mathematics from Princeton University has a new racist equation she wants to promote: white + man + job = her order for white males to quit or be demoted. Piper Harron wrote on a blog for the American Mathematical Society (AMS), titling her piece, “Get Out The Way.” Harron began with her demand: Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion. Statistically speaking, you are probably taking up room that should go to someone else.

Former late-night television host David Letterman eviscerated President Trump in a rare interview, calling the president a “goon” who lacks any core principles. The 70-year-old comedian told GQ magazine in its upcoming June issue that while he has “no reason” to regret hosting Mr. Trump multiple times on “Late Night,” he is very “disappointed” that his former guest is now representing the country. “It makes me sick,” Mr. Letterman said. “But we always looked forward to having him on. He was a great guest. He was just a big, wealthy dope who’d come on and we would make fun of
