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.

I want Trump to continue his Twitter Feed. DON´T STOP. This will keep the establishment in line and expose dishonest democrats.

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.

Poor Jonah´s Trump Derangement Syndrome has moved up another level just when I thought it couldn´t. Put some ice on that, Jonah.

When my dyed in the wool liberal friends who hate Trump and mailed checks to both Hillary and Jill Stein´s fake recount say Trump should stop tweeting, I say bring them on times three!

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.

On Wednesday the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit handed Second Amendment advocates a major victory when it struck down multiple gun range regulations imposed by the city of Chicago as unconstitutional infringements on the right to keep and bear arms. The majority opinion in the case, Ezell v. Chicago, was written by Judge Diane Sykes, whose name appears on Donald Trump´s short-list of possible Supreme Court nominees. The underlying issue in Ezell v. Chicago is the Windy City´s hostile reaction to the Supreme Court´s 2010 ruling in McDonald v. Chicago, in which the Court struck down

   

 

  


 
Why National Unity Remains
So Elusive

‘For many years,” Donald Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon, “our country has been divided, angry and untrusting. Many say it will never change, the hatred is too deep. IT WILL CHANGE!!!!” As persuasive as the ALL CAPS are, I have my doubts. Put aside Trump’s specific shortcomings for the moment. The presidency has become ill-suited to the task of unifying the country, because the presidency has become the biggest prize and totem in the culture war. Like the religious wars between Catholics and Protestants in England, if one side controls the throne, it is seen as an insult and threat

Questions for Jeff Sessions
Washington Post, by Radley Balko    Original Article

In November, President-elect Donald Trump nominated Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to be the next attorney general. Sessions’s nomination hearing is underway. Here are some questions he ought to be asked: In 1997, you said that the very phrase prosecutorial misconduct “offends” you, and you accused defense attorneys of abusing prosecutors. Since then, we’ve seen a wide range of reports and judicial opinions demonstrating that prosecutor misconduct is indeed a real problem in the United States. A 2014 investigation by the Justice Department itself found 650 incidents where federal prosecutors and other Justice Department employees “violated rules, laws, or ethical standards

Del. Robert Marshall and his liberal critics might be appalled by the suggestion that they share anything in common. Marshall ferociously opposes abortion, he co-sponsored Virginia´s constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, and he once even tried to prohibit single women from getting pregnant through artificial insemination. But while he and those on the left differ on policy specifics, they share a core assumption. This year the Prince William delegate wants the General Assembly to take a stand against porn. He has drafted a resolution declaring pornography a public health hazard and advocating a "policy change . . . to address

Last week a federal appeals court ruled that requiring incoming students at a state college to surrender their urine for drug testing violates the Fourth Amendment´s ban on unreasonable searches. The decision is a welcome departure from a body of case law that usually defers to the government´s perception of "special needs" that supposedly justify analyzing people´s bodily fluids without a warrant or any evidence that they pose a threat to public safety. Linn State Technical College, now known as the State Technical College of Missouri, started demanding incoming students´ urine in 2011 because members of its advisory council

   

 



 
On Oil, No Backsies!
National Review, by Kevin D. Williamson    Original Article
Posted By: zoidberg- 12/22/2016 5:51:09 AM     Post Reply
Barack Obama, utilizing the hitherto unknown "No-Backsies!" provision of Article II, has unilaterally declared an "indefinite" ban on oil exploration in certain parts of the Atlantic and Arctic. The president is relying on a novel - and imaginary, and dishonest - interpretation of the 1953 Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, which he says empowers him to make, by unilateral executive fiat, new drilling rules that cannot be undone by any successor president. Legally speaking this is, as Professor Patrick Parenteau of Vermont Law School wryly put it, "uncharted waters."

28% of federal employees may

assumes office: Poll

Almost two-thirds of federal employees voted for Hillary Clinton during the presidential election, according to a new survey. The poll also found that six of 10 felt that the election itself gave Americans a negative impression of federal service. So it may come as no surprise that some federal employees are considering leaving their employment when President-elect Donald Trump assumes office. “More than one in four federal workers, or 28 percent, will definitely or possibly consider leaving their jobs after Jan. 20 when Trump is sworn into office and becomes leader of the executive branch,” according to the survey conducted

President Obama issued a farewell warning to President-elect Donald Trump, saying he would jump off the political sidelines if Trump goes against certain ´core values.´ At his last scheduled news conference before leaving office on Friday, Obama said if there was ´systemic discrimination,´ efforts to ´silence dissent´ or to ´roll back voting rights,´ he would be ´speaking out.´ It was among his most activist descriptions of his next act, and indicates Obama may be rethinking his post-presidency role and heeding the urgings of some activists to play a stronger function in the leaderless Democratic Party as it navigates the Trump

In the first days of 2017, Washington D.C. was empty. It was a city holding its breath. Secret Service police officers in balaclavas waited at the White House as a black SUV carrying departing staffers passed. It had not been so long ago that they came into the city as if they owned it and the entire country. Now the same men and women who ran and ruined the lives of millions were scrolling through job postings on their smartphones. They watched Obama speak from faded screens at sports bars and they cried. They knew it was coming. Day 1. The parties

With the announcement that he was nominating former Georgia governor Sonny Perdue to lead the Department of Agriculture, Donald Trump´s Cabinet is complete. There´d been rumors that Trump was looking to find a Hispanic candidate to fill the position, but that didn´t happen. Which means, as our Ed O´Keefe notes, that Trump´s is the first Cabinet since 1980 in which no member is Hispanic. That´s interesting in part because the country itself has gotten so much more diverse since Ronald Reagan was elected. In 1980, about 6 percent of the population was Hispanic and about 80 percent of the country

This is it, the last full day of President Barack Obama’s tenure. Damn, it feels better than I thought it would. Forgive my smile as I type. As President Obama makes his way out the door like a drunk who has been tossed from a bar and is determined to smash every glass on his way out, it’s important to take a moment to reflect upon all the good he’s done while he occupied 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Yes, you read that right – thank you, President Obama.

Hillary Clinton fans are urging her to make a political comeback after a poll showed how she would trounce Bill de Blasio in a hypothetical race for New York Mayor. Clinton, who has given no indication she will run for office again, won 49 percent of the hypothetical vote over de Blasio´s 29 in the survey. The poll sparked calls among her fans to revive her political career. They started a ´Hillary for Mayor´ hashtag on Twitter and told de Blasio to ´watch out´. The poll, conducted by Quinnipiac University, asked: ´If the election for Mayor were being held today, and the candidates

With less than 48 hours left as First Lady, Michelle Obama spent much of her day on Wednesday soaking up the White House before she is forced to move out. First, she walked through its halls with family dogs Bo and Sunny, sharing a video of their jaunt on Twitter. The stroll appears to have ended in the Executive Residence where Mrs Obama cuddled up to her husband to take in the view from the Truman balcony for one of the last times. She shared a photograph of the special moment on social media to thank fans for their support, writing alongside it:
