Trump’s in trouble. Is it
Christie time already?

Somehow, on Valentine’s Day, while he was trying to find a new national security adviser to replace the one he’d just fired, and while he was staring down multiple investigations over potential collusion with Russia, and while he was dealing with the fallout from having conducted missile diplomacy with the Japanese in the public dining room at Mar-a-Lago as if it were one of those party games where everyone got to dress up as a country in World War II … somehow, with all this swirling around him, President Trump managed to lunch with his old friend Chris Christie.

If the sun rose this morning, you will just as surely get the liberally-biased spew from Yahoo.com. The National Enquirer provided more unbiased reporting in the last 24 hours than Yahoo.com has provided in the last year. Yahoo includes HuffingtonPost and Al Jazeera as their "news feeds."

My calendar says Inauguration Day was Jan 20, 2017. That was 35 days ago. 20 working days if we exclude weekends. Roughly one month. One.

Any person, friend or foe, reaching a so-called conclusion about this president and his administration is a fool.

Moot point. Christie will never get within hailing distance of the White House because Jared Kushner hates Christie´s guts. Christie, as prosecutor, was instrumental in nailing Charles Kushner on 18 counts of tax evasion and witness tampering.

Charles Kushner is an epic sleaze. He hired a prostitute to come on to his brother-in-law and seduce him. He had the encounter taped, and sent the tape to his sister. Kushner went to prison. Jared is not going to forgive the man who put him there.

Yahoo has a placard at the top of their webpage every day with an antiTrump heading. Yahoo is not a credible source, and they are not honest about the hacking of their email service, and their work has become of very low quality. Maybe Verizon can salvage this disaster, but it they do, they are going to have to clean house.

According to the President in his press conference, it was PENCE who got Flynn canned. So the posters who are spreading the rumor that Preibus pushed him out would appear to be trafficking in Fake News as they are contradicting the President himself.

How do you know it was Preibus? Links please.

McMaster is a Promising Choice
American Greatness, by Mackubin Owens    Original Article

President Trump’s selection of Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster to be his national security adviser has been widely praised, and rightly so. McMaster is a remarkable man cut from the same cloth as the new secretary of defense, Jim Mattis. Both are inspirational leaders. Both are thoughtful, well-read “soldier-scholars.” Both are clear thinkers and straight talkers. Indeed, McMaster’s intense, fierce outspokenness has not always endeared him to his superiors. McMaster’s story has been recounted many times in recent days. A native of Philadelphia, he is a 1984 graduate of the US Military Academy at West Point. Later, he earned a PhD

The country´s premier conservative gathering welcomes a distinctly populist president. Leaders in the Democratic Party convene to chart a new direction with a fresh figurehead. Governors trek to Washington seeking to influence pending federal policy that could impact their cash-strapped states. And an outpouring of progressive resistance continues to simmer at congressional town hall meetings, leaving the right scrambling to counter with their own demonstrations in support of Donald Trump. This week is shaping up to be one of the most active and politically significant of the year for both major parties, as well as the activists that keep them honest.

With control of all three branches of government, Republicans are set on unraveling President Obama´s education legacy and pushing an unprecedented amount of funding and authority back to states. Leading this charge is Rep. Virginia Foxx, the newly appointed chairwoman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee. Her mission, as she told RealClearPolitics in an interview for the new episode of the “First 100 Days” podcast series, is to make the federal government “as minimal as possible.” In fact, the North Carolina Republican has no qualms about abolishing the entire Department of Education. “If the Lord put me in charge, I

Donald Trump’s stunning election win has some Californians so upset that they want to secede from the United States. A group calling itself Yes California has organized a petition drive for a referendum in the spring 2019 election to demand a convention of states to approve “Calexit,” which would recreate the Republic of California of 1850. Louis Marinelli writes that the movement “is about California taking its place in the world, standing as an equal among nations.” Taking one’s place in the world is something Marinelli knows about, as the New York Times discovered. His place in the world isn’t California

But it’s so much fun! Some puzzled over Mitch McConnell’s decision to silence Elizabeth Warren in the Senate’s overnight debate on Jeff Sessions’ confirmation as Attorney General, effectively promoting her otherwise unremarkable speech and transforming her into a leader of the Democratic “resistance.” The reaction of red-state Democrats has McConnell looking as crazy as a fox, as Chuck Schumer wants Republicans to stop using their Jedi mind tricks on them: Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is dismissing the GOP’s efforts to make Sen.

Nobody panics when things go according to plan, even if the plan is horrifying!" the Joker says in "The Dark Knight." "Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos." Welcome to the Trump administration. The media seem befuddled as to how the Trump administration handles its business. Upset with the idea that Donald Trump is president, the press have sought a shadow "master planner" in the White House, and they´ve settled on White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. During the campaign, they suggested that the great mind was then-Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway. Sometimes, they say, it´s White

President Trump has dismissed the constituent backlash against Republican lawmakers at recent town halls as "planned out by liberal activists." But with policy items GOP lawmakers have been pushing for years—namely, the repeal of Obamacare—hanging in the balance, conservative groups say they know better. They have seen this script before—seven years ago, to be precise. The Obama administration and Democratic congressional leaders wrote off the Tea Party protests in the spring of the new president´s first term as "astroturf" organizing, manufactured to look like a grassroots movement. Democratic lawmakers were caught off guard by raucous demonstrations at town halls in the

Via WaPo. The grapes, they are sour. I think there’s sort of two possibilities. There are at least forces within the FBI that wanted her to lose. I’m not sure they really understood the alternative, but they wanted her to lose. I think that’s one possibility. I think the other is it’s just become a cover-your-a--organization, and there was pressure coming up from underneath him, and he succumbed to that pressure. But he made a bad judgment, and I think virtually anybody who has opined on the topic — including Republicans who served in both Bush administrations and the Reagan

Fun times politically in the ol’ U.S. of A. The most shocking result here: When asked about the media, not even half of Republicans were willing to call them an “enemy.” Do Trump’s warnings mean nothing? Important caveat: Slightly more than half of Trump’s own voters, in contrast to Republicans generally, do regard the media as an “enemy.”(Snip)Among Republicans, 43 percent say the media is an “enemy” while another 35 percent say it’s “unfriendly.” Interestingly, despite endless whining from Democrats online that the media is either too right-wing or insufficiently left, fully 60 percent of Democrats polled here acknowledge that the

Do you wonder why Donald Trump thinks he’s wildly popular beyond the nefarious precincts of those enemies of the people, the liberal news media? The president himself offered a succinct talking point on that subject near the beginning of his very non-succinct February 16 press conference. A new Rasmussen poll, in fact – because the people get it – much of the media doesn’t get it. They actually get it, but they don’t write it. Let’s put it that way. But a new Rasmussen poll just came out just a very short while ago, and it has our approval rating at

The ‘deep state’ is real.

Here’s a fact for the media to chew on: The “deep state” is here. As outlined in Foreign Policy, the concept of the deep state is nothing new. But the Trump presidency may serve as the galvanizing force that links some of the formal established Democratic opposition forces, including MoveOn.org, government unions and Black Lives Matter with the informal deep-state cadre of disgruntled liberal bureaucrats, the hostile mainstream media and the usual suspects on the left. It’s a troubling phenomenon, with anti-Trump organizations and Democratic-aligned civil servants conspiring to actively work against the incumbent government. There might not be any central

Many in the media are warning that President Donald Trump is incompetent and doesn’t know what he’s doing. His ignorance, they say, will mean the downfall of the republic. The hysteria is unwarranted and merely part of a Democratic Party campaign to oust the president and derail his agenda. This isn’t the first president to face claims of incompetence. Sometimes they’re right and sometimes not. Such charges were made against Barack Obama, and most were warranted, coming not only from Republicans but Democrats. In November 2010, Joe Scarborough reported that several Democratic senators had told him they thought Obama was out

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., predicted Tuesday that many Republican lawmakers will break from President Trump by June if he continues to push forward with his agenda. Schumer told "The View" that while most Republicans have declined to publicly break with Trump during the first month of his presidency, many privately admit they have "real problems" with him. He also argued that some are sticking by him because of party loyalty and his nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the late Antonin Scalia´s seat on the Supreme Court.

A group of global investors with $11 trillion in managed assets told Texas on Tuesday not to enact legislation restricting access to bathrooms for transgender people, saying it is discriminatory and bad for business. The "Texas Privacy Act," or Senate Bill 6, has been marked as a priority for Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, a Republican and conservative Christian who guides the legislative agenda in the Republican-controlled state Senate. He said the measure protected the privacy and safety of Texans. The bill on a flashpoint issue in the United States is similar to a law enacted last year in North Carolina

A Mexican man has apparently taken his own life just half an hour after being deported from the United States. Guadalupe Olivas Valencia, 45, jumped from a bridge at the border after he was deported for the third time. He was found unconscious next to a plastic bag with his belongings and died in hospital a short while later. His death came as the Trump administration issued new guidelines to widen the net for deporting illegal immigrants from the US. (Snip) Mr Olivas was a native of Sinaloa, one of Mexico's most violent states and the stronghold of the cartel formerly led by jailed drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

Entire San Jose neighborhoods were submerged by water on Wednesday during the worst floods for 100 years. 50,000 people were told to flee their homes after evacuation warnings were issued in the early hours of the morning. Most were issued a flood warning but for 14,000 the order was mandatory. The flooding began when Coyote Creek, which runs through Silicone Valley from the San Francisco Bay, burst its banks on Tuesday night. It sent dirty water pouring in to the towns below it at frightening pace. On Wednesday, residents complained that the alert had not been sent out fast enough. Some

Astronomers have spotted a star system with planets that could support life just 39 light years away. Seven Earth-like planets have been discovered orbiting nearby dwarf star ´Trappist-1´, and all of them could have water at their surface, one of the key components of life. Three of the planets have such good conditions, that scientists say life may have already evolved on them. Researchers claim that they will know whether or not there is life on any of the planets within a decade, and said ´this is just the beginning.´ No other star system discovered before has been found to

AmeriCorps sounded like a good idea. Create a program where American youth could basically earn free college by working and helping their communities. On the surface -- and if you don´t understand the inherent issue with any government program -- it sounds like a great way to help people get their educations.

So, they´re really part of the fabric of our life. Although, admittedly, they´re here illegally.” King insisted, “But they´ve been
