No, Trump Doesn´t Have
an ´Anti-Palestinian Agenda´

Real Clear Politics, by Alex Titus

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 9/14/2018 12:12:41 PM

The Trump administration recently announced that it would close the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s office in Washington, D.C., citing a lack of progress in peace talks with Israel. This comes after the administration’s move to cut funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. Critics like Ishaan Tharoor at the Washington Post were quick to lambast the administration for having an “anti-Palestinian agenda.” Don’t let Tharoor and his allies mislead you. The administration isn’t playing sides -- it’s recognizing hard truths.

I am glad Trump has an anti-paying the Palestinians agenda. Thank you, PDT.

"It´s the Lord of the Flies on LaSalle Street," wrote columnist John Kass in the Chicago Tribune. In case the references are unclear, whether because high schools haven´t been assigning the William Golding novel in the last few decades or because out-of-towners unaccountably don´t realize that Chicago´s City Hall front is on LaSalle Street, the curmudgeonly Kass was writing about Mayor Rahm Emanuel´s announcement that he won´t run for a third term as mayor next February. Should readers from outside Chicagoland care? Yes, because Emanuel´s surprise exit is a sign of the unworkability of policies

Politicize the weather

Hurricane Florence struck the Carolinas on Thursday, moving slowly inland. By Friday morning, it had brought a 10-foot storm surge and sever flooding to parts of North Carolina. Multiple people have needed to be rescued and power companies are reporting more than 150,000 outages due to strong winds topping 90 miles per hour. Yet for all of its destruction, it´s just one of many terrible weather events that have caused humanitarian disasters in the United States over the past two years — most notably Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

Kavanaugh Needs No Defense

Every time a conservative jurist is nominated to the Supreme Court, he’s accused of perpetrating some heinous deed or harboring some reprehensible opinion. Neil Gorsuch was a plagiarist. Sam Alito was a racist and a sexist. John Roberts supported abortion clinic bombers. Clarence Thomas liked to talk about weird sex to female subordinates. Robert Bork was one of the worst people who ever lived. Brett Kavanaugh was subjected to some of the most mindlessly tendentious treatment we’ve ever witnessed in a Senate confirmation hearing. Particularly memorable was Cory Booker’s demand that Kavanaugh explain a 16-year-old email on racial profiling

Collins, Kavanaugh, and the
Rewards of ‘Moderation’
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

We have all seen those grisly stories in the news about people who adopt dangerous predators as pets only to be torn limb from limb by the very creatures they have cosseted for years. This is analogous to what is now happening to Susan Collins. The Maine Senator has frequently curried favor with the left by taking “principled stands” against her fellow Republicans on issues like Obamacare, and basked in the praise of progressives. Collins presumably thought this meant she was safe from the left’s innate brutishness when she took a perfectly reasonable position regarding SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

CNN released a new poll this week that alleges only 38 percent of Americans support the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, while 39 percent do not. It was the lowest net approval of any Supreme Court nominee since Harriet Miers. “Even” Robert Bork was +3 in the poll at the time of his confirmation hearing, a helpful reporter pointed out. The news induced Vox’s Ezra Klein to argue that a “lifetime appointment for a Supreme Court Justice who a plurality oppose at the time of his appointment, and who was nominated by a president and confirmed

Joe Manchin: Mountebank From

American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/12/2018 6:12:08     Post Reply
West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is nervous. He’s a Democrat defending his seat in a state that President Trump carried by 41 points and his single-digit lead over GOP challenger Patrick Morrisey is shrinking. Even worse, the latest polls show his support below 50 percent while the “undecided” percentage grows. Consequently, like all Democrats with drooping leads, Manchin has reverted to the demagoguery that defines his party. He has just released a campaign ad that shows him shooting a piece of paper after looking menacingly into the camera and lying about his opponent’s position on pre-existing conditions.

Russia Investigation: President Trump may soon release classified documents related to top FBI official Bruce Ohr and former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. If so, it´s likely to reveal once and for all the sham nature of the FBI´s "investigation" of alleged Trump-Russia collusion during the 2016 election.The move, according to the news site Axios, comes at the behest of House GOP members of the Intelligence and Judiciary committees. In recent hearings, they have heard evidence that suggests the FBI ran a shoddy, politicized and possibly illegal internal campaign

The economic recovery is really beginning to reach into Trump country. The president is famous for his extravagant promises, involving, invariably, the biggest and the best. The landscape is littered with examples, although he never promised to create blue-collar jobs at the fastest clip since 1984, something he achieved in the first half of 2018. A labor market that has been rocky since the financial crisis, and hasn’t truly delivered for many workers for decades,

The most surprising aspect of the furor surrounding the infamous unsigned New York Times Op-Ed, ostensibly written by a member of the Trump administration, is that anyone believes its author is a senior official. Assuming this person isn’t an employee of the Times, and it is by no means unknown for the Gray Lady’s journalists to fabricate quotes and attribute them to anonymous “officials,” the author of this hit piece is at most a mid-level staffer. Indeed, if this character is actually employed in the Trump administration, it is almost certainly at a level of insignificance verging on invisibility.

White House in chaos — what´s new?

The president decided the entire White House staff was working against him, running their own agenda, not his or that of the nation. Poll ratings had plummeted, with job approval in the 30s. Leaks were a common occurrence as staffers hyped their own policy positions, even brazenly floating them in trial balloons. The president was on edge, feeling helpless amid the chaos. His reelection looked like a fantasy. There was an independent counsel investigation examining all his business dealings. The attorney general was cursed all day long inside the White House

The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee said Thursday she has asked federal investigators to probe a secret complaint about President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, raising yet another potential hurdle to his confirmation. Sen. Dianne Feinstein did not divulge details, saying only that the information about Judge Brett Kavanaugh came from an individual who wants to remain anonymous. “That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities,” Ms. Feinstein said in a statement Thursday.

Clinton said, “I look at my children and I have to quote Jim Yong Kim, ‘optimism is a moral choice.’ Every day I make the moral choice to be optimistic.

The FBI is declining to investigate Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh´s connection to a Democratic senator´s mysterious claim that troubling ´information´ had come to her – information reportedly concerning sexual misconduct when he was in high school. Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said Thursda in a statement that she had referred her information to federal investigators, just a week before the U.S. Senate is scheduled to begin a series of votes on his nomination. Feinstein is a liberal California Democrat who has called on her colleagues to slow down the march toward confirming President Donald Trump´s pick to succeed Justice

First of all, what in blazes was Dianne Feinstein thinking? It was late July when she got that letter from a female constituent alleging that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school. And only this week did she bother to share it with her Democratic Judiciary Committee colleagues? (Snip) And now where are we? She’s made an absolute disaster of things. It got out anyway. If anything, by holding it so long, she has helped facilitate the discrediting of the woman who is accusing Kavanaugh here, because it looks desperate and eleventh-hour, whereas if she’d

The FBI will not be investigating Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) last-second attempt to smear Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. After countless hours of hearings, a number of in-depth background checks, thousands of questions asked and answered, and numerous one-on-one meetings with senators of both parties, at the very last second Feinstein dramatically released a letter (she has reportedly had in her possession for months) to the FBI.(Snip) According to the far-left Washington Post, however, the FBI is not interested and will not be investigating the matter.

According to a report released Thursday, California Senator Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, possesses a document regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh that she refuses to share with other Democrats on the committee. The Intercept reports that other Democrats have requested access to the document, which originated from someone in California, and reportedly delineates an incident between Kavanaugh and a woman in high school. The information regarding the incident was allegedly forwarded to someone affiliated with Stanford University, who wrote the letter and then forwarded it to Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA), who sent it to Feinstein.

Country singer Willie Nelson will headline a campaign event for Beto O’Rourke, the Democrat running for the U.S. Senate in Texas, according to the candidate’s website. In his first-ever performance in support of a political candidate, Willie Nelson is slated to perform September 29 on behalf of O’Rourke at a rally at the Auditorium Shores in Austin, Texas. Rolling Stone reports: While Nelson has performed for politicians in the past — most famously for President Jimmy Carter on the South Lawn of the White House on September 13th, 1980 — the O’Rourke rally will mark his first-ever public performance on

David Hogg, the teenage Parkland-shooting-sufferer-turned-political activist, took to Twitter to call out U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley as an audacious failure who ought to resign her post pronto. “Immediately,” is how Hogg put it. As in do not pass go, do not collect $200. If only Hogg’s reasoning were sound, maybe he wouldn’t be such a headache. No — take that back. Hogg’s a headache, no matter how you slice it. But if only his call for Haley to resign were based on something other than his emotionally driven hatred for all things conservative, maybe he wouldn’t be a migraine of a headache.
