Donald Trump’s combative,
grievance-filled press
conference, annotated

Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/16/2017 2:12:02 PM

A solemn President Trump turned his Thursday afternoon announcement of a new labor secretary nominee into a screed against the media and large-scale defense of his first four weeks as president. It was remarkable. Trump hit all the usual points: The polls, the electoral college, the media, etc. He even said that he inherited a "mess" four separate times. There were grievances galore. Below is the transcript, which we´ll update as it comes in, along with our analysis and annotations. TRUMP: Thank you very much. I just wanted to begin by mentioning that the nominee for secretary of the Department of Labor will be

Comments:
We watched the whole thing. It was a doozy. Worthy of cheering. He did a fantastic job. Read the transcript. I’ll try to find CTH’s video so that you can use your own eyes and ears!!!

Doozy? It went beyond that. Truly a Tour d´force. (Bret Baier on Fox just stole that phrase!) Don´t let the media slugs off the floor, Mr. President.

A "solemn President Trump"? Aaron Blake must have seen a different news conference. The President seemed to be having a really good time. So did I. Trump recognizes that the lying liberal media are out to destroy his Presidency and is having none of it. He is happy to call things what they are. Muslims who want to kill and terrorize us are "radical Islamic terrorists", and the lying liberal media are the "opposition". Recognizing enemies for what they are is one of the first steps to defeating them, and for the good of America the lying liberal media must be defeated.

Just as President Trump predicted when he used the word "rant," the Washington Post reporter characterized the news conference as a negative "combative" and "grievance-filled" event.

Never mind that the press and the opposition party are on an endless mission to undermine, if not undo the results of the election.

Hardly road rage. Just an intelligent experienced president calling it as he - and we - see it. He has known all along what they were up to. It would not be a sign of strength for him to not call them on what they’re up to and appeal to their better natures. He simply asked them to tell the truth.

Those who show up attempting to mock other posters who support our president sometimes do not turn out well.

He worked without notes and no one, and I do mean NO ONE, could have missed what took place. This is the man I voted for and the man who has my confidence 100%. My phone has been ringing and everyone agrees. We´re all deplorables, all voted for President Trump, and all think you and your pals aren´t worth the price of a bag of year old garbage.

Way to go, President Trump. We´re with you, we have your back too.

LOL, #5 misses the empty rhetoric of every other pandering politician. The non answers the defensive response to the set up strawmen that the press lives by. Why? What possible progress could be achieved to advancing America with more bogus claims of ´the most transparent administration ever,´ by a fake who never had any intention of doing that and a room full of reporters who knew it. He should have played word games with them right George? This has to be George Will, right?

Posted By: earlybird- 3/22/2017 9:47:05     Post Reply
Conservative news outlets, including one with links to a top White House official, are singling out individual career government employees for criticism, suggesting in articles that certain staffers will not be sufficiently loyal to President Donald Trump by virtue of their work under former President Barack Obama. The articles — which have appeared in Breitbart News, the Conservative Review and other outlets — have alarmed veteran officials in both parties as well as current executive branch staffers. They say the stories are adding to tensions between career staffers and political appointees as they begin to implement Trump’s agenda, and they worry

Wednesday, the House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said the U.S. intelligence community “incidentally collected” information on President Donald Trump transition team. Nunes said, “So first I recently confirmed that on numerous occasions, the intelligence community incidentally collected information about U.S. citizens involved in the Trump transition. Details about U.S. persons associated with the incoming administration, details with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value were widely disseminated in intelligence community reporting. Third, I have confirmed that additional names of Trump transition team members were unmasked. And fourth and finally I want to be clear, none of this surveillance

The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), in the latest edition of its online propaganda magazine Rumiyah, applauds the “martyrdom” of the Ohio State University (OSU) jihadi who used a butcher knife and vehicle to attack people and repeats instructions on carrying out more knife attacks.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) estimates 20,484 migrants have arrived in Europe by sea since the beginning of 2017, with numbers likely to explode as the continent heads into spring. These totals do not include 3,312 migrants picked up off Libya on the 19th of March who are currently en route to Italy, according to the text of the IOM’s report. Including these migrants puts the number of Italian arrivals well ahead of the total for the first three months of 2015 (10,165) and the first three months of 2016 (18,777) – and March 2017 has over a week

Failing to repeal Obamacare would be “the ultimate betrayal of the electorate.” That’s what Charles Krauthammer said just last month. He was right. Congressional Republicans have been defined by nothing so much as their opposition to Obamacare since 2009. That opposition has been the source of four successful elections that have seen Republicans gain 62 seats in the House, 12 seats in the Senate, and now control of the White House. Given the dubious circumstances surrounding the passage of Obamacare in 2010, it should be no surprise that resistance to its mandates has proved so durable. Throughout the entire debate

Rockville High School Rape –
Montgomery County School
Superintendent Press Conference…
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance    Original Article

The Montgomery County Public School superintendent, Jack R. Smith, held a press conference last night to discuss the rape of a 14-year-old ninth grade student by two illegal alien students, also enrolled in the ninth grade, aged 17 and 18. Mr. Smith begins the press conference by stating anyone who opposes undocumented adult illegal aliens being allowed to enroll in Montgomery County Public Schools with young students is a bigot and a racist. The far-left political advocacy of this progressive School Superintendent is stunning. This school district is so far over the ideological deep end, it seems hopeless for the residents and

The Independent Journal Review (IJR) has reportedly suspended Chief Content Officer Benny Johnson and two editors for their role in publishing a conspiracy theory about former President Obama. Alex Skatell, the conservative website’s founder, suspended Mr. Johnson, viral editor Kyle Becker and content editor Becca Lower for publishing the report last week that suggested Mr. Obama may have influenced a Hawaii judge’s ruling blocking President Trump’s second travel ban, Business Insider reported. IJR later retracted the story, saying in an editor’s note that it didn’t meet the outlet’s editorial standards. A person familiar with the matter told Business Insider that

Steyn: Dems Turned Putin Into ‘Bond

Author and commentator Mark Steyn said Democrats in Congress effectively made Russian President Vladimir Putin a "Bond villain" by continuing to accuse them of interference and spying. "The Democrats turned Putin into a Bond villain: the man with the spider´s touch," he said, using a line from 1964´s "Goldfinger" theme to recount the way Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) described Putin on Monday, (Snip)"They want to believe that they didn´t lose the election... that someone stole it from them," Steyn said, calling their drumbeat against Russia "nuts."

Sorry Dems, Judge Gorsuch is un-Borkable

Will Judge Neil Gorsuch get "Borked?" Some Democrats, still seething over the stalled U.S. Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland, are trying. But their dream of delivering political retribution has, thus far, fizzled. That is not likely to change. Gorsuch’s credentials are too impeccable, his intellect too keen and his temperament too even to fall victim to the kind of debasement that felled Judge Robert Bork and coined an infamous phrase. If the Gorsuch confirmation hearings have proven anything, it’s that his opponents have no powder in their guns. Try as they may, there is little in the record of Neil Gorsuch that

The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, took the extraordinary step on Monday of announcing that the agency is investigating whether members of President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election. Mr. Comey’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee created a treacherous political moment for Mr. Trump, who has insisted that “Russia is fake news” that was cooked up by his political opponents to undermine his presidency. Mr. Comey placed a criminal investigation at the doorstep of the White House and said officers would pursue it “no matter how long that takes.” (Snip) The New York Times and other news organizations

The mainstream media have been doing a victory lap since the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National Security Agency (NSA) confirmed on Monday in testimony before the U.S. House Intelligence Committee that President Barack Obama did not wiretap Trump Tower. But that was already known. There was only one new revelation at the hearing, and it was a bombshell: senior Obama administration officials could have known the identities of surveillance targets. One of those targets, retired General Michael Flynn, lost his job after it was revealed that his conversation with the Russian ambassador had been monitored, and that he had

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security.

The family of Seth Rich, a staffer for the Democratic National Committee who was murdered last July in Washington, D.C., has launched a crowdfunding page to raise money for investigating the unsolved case.

As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday questioned Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch about what it would take to impeach President Trump.

Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move

The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, took the extraordinary step on Monday of announcing that the agency is investigating whether members of President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Mr. Comey placed a criminal investigation at the doorstep of the White House and said officers would pursue it “no matter how long that takes.” (Snip) The New York Times and other news organizations
