The Media Hides Its Own
Disapproval Rating

Investor´s Business Daily, by L. Brent Bozell and Tim Graham

Original Article

Posted By:danvillebill, 3/16/2017 2:09:48 PM

The latest poll by USA Today and Suffolk University carried some eye-opening numbers about public disapproval of the media´s aggressive attempts to run the country. It found that President Trump has a 47% approval rating and that 44% disapprove of him. That´s not surprising. The media talk about his unpopularity all the time. But here´s what they don´t talk about: their own numbers. Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of their job performance. A whopping 50% have an unfavorable opinion.

Comments:
Side note: some other polling shows DT with 52% favorable.

Headline split by staff.

Don´t see how the msm will ever regain any semblance of trust of Americans. They trample the first amendment on one hand, while claiming it´s protection on the other.

Socialism’s Rising Popularity

Headlines about “the end of the republic” litter political commentary across the political landscape. They usually mark the beginning of a discussion of the merits of Donald Trump as president of the United States, but his ascendency is not the leading sign of a collapse of American society. For that, see a recent poll indicating a tectonic shift occurring in the political preferences of U.S. adults. When you consider current trends in cultural norms and widely held beliefs, you will see that we are headed toward the end of the American experiment.

Let Bannon Be Bannon!

I continue to worry about Steve Bannon. I see him in the White House photos, but he never has that sprightly Prince of Darkness gleam in his eye anymore. His governing philosophy is being completely gutted by the mice around him. He seems to have a big influence on Trump speeches but zero influence on recent Trump policies. I’m beginning to fear that he’s spending his days sitting along the wall in the Roosevelt Room morosely playing one of those Risk-style global empire video games on his smartphone.

Key Conservatives Come Around
on GOP Health Plan
Roll Call, by John T. Bennett and Lindsey McPherson    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 3/17/2017 3:38:23     Post Reply
Several key Republicans on Friday endorsed the health care overhaul bill crafted by GOP leaders and the White House, saying President Donald Trump had agreed to changes they favored minutes earlier during an Oval Office meeting. With a vote on the so-called American Health Care Act scheduled for this coming Thursday in the House, the news was welcomed by supporters of repealing and replacing the 2010 health care law. Just over a dozen Republican Study Committee members told reporters outside the West Wing that leadership of the conservative caucus is now a “positive yes” after the president signed off on

Most Americans are worried about our domestic crises. Obama left office after doubling the debt to $20 trillion. Near-zero interest rates over eight years have impoverished an entire generation of seniors — and yet remain key to servicing the costs of such reckless borrowing. Over the last eight years, GDP never grew at 3 percent annually, the first time we’ve seen such low growth since the Hoover administration. Obamacare spiked health-care premiums and deductibles while restricting access and reducing patient choices.

Today’s Political Polarization
Isn’t as Striking as We Think

Polarize” is a funny word. I hear it all the time, including from my own mouth. The country is polarized. The parties are polarized. President Trump is polarizing. I think that’s true, but I don’t think the word means what people think it means. First, let’s go to the dictionary. Merriam-Webster offers three definitions, the first two scientific and then this: “to break up into opposing factions or groupings, (e.g.) a campaign that polarized the electorate.” That looks right to me. But when people hear the word “polarized,” they think it means something like “the maximum distance” apart from each

Parsing Clapper

In Monday’s Morning Jolt, Jim Geraghty usefully outlined some intriguing statements made by former Obama national intelligence director James Clapper regarding the FISA surveillance controversy. Clapper’s remarks, in an interview by NBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on Sunday, are being taken as a blanket denial of the allegations that the Obama administration used the Justice Department and FBI to investigate Trump-campaign figures, potentially including Trump himself.

Trump Pushes GOP Health Care Bill
as Conservatives Revolt
Real Clear Politics, by James Arkin    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 3/8/2017 3:15:24     Post Reply
The unstoppable force of Republican promises to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act ran headfirst Tuesday into the immovable object that is conservative objections to key tenets of the legislation. Which side gives ground in the coming days could determine whether the GOP succeeds in its long-standing goal to overhaul the health care system. The stalemate, one day after Republicans released their long-awaited plan, quickly put the future of the legislation on shaky ground. Speaker Paul Ryan guaranteed his party would have the votes to pass the plan, while conservative lawmakers insisted that they have the votes in both the

Some women are striking from

The “Day Without a Woman” strike on Wednesday may mean a day with fewer smiles. While not every one plans to skip work, many who want to show solidarity with the growing feminist movement said they plan to strike from unpaid work that women disproportionately do, including cooking, cleaning and, some said, smiling. More specifically, fake smiling. Some feminists say the happy face they sport by habit — or on command — is a form of unpaid “emotional labor.”

Possible TV Station Deregulation

CBS´ Leslie Moonves on Tuesday signaled his approval of the Trump administration´s deregulatory agenda, which could allow the network to buy up more TV stations and get more revenue from retransmission consent fees. "Overall, advertising is very strong. Our balance sheet is strong. So looking forward, the news out of CBS is pretty positive and I´m feeling very optimistic about the world," the exec said Tuesday. "Obviously, there is a lot of information coming out of Washington and although we are not the enemy of the people, we welcome the deregulations that are going on there."

On Monday, the House released their Obamacare repeal and replace bill. The same day, four Republican senators wrote a letter to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warning him they would not support any repeal bill that doesn’t protect the Obamacare Medicaid expansion. “We are concerned that any poorly implemented or poorly timed change in the current funding structure in Medicaid could result in a reduction in access to life-saving health care services,” states the letter signed by Rob Portman of Ohio, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Cory Gardner of Colorado.

Voters won´t forgive Republicans

Two months into a new Congress and a bill to repeal ObamaCare has yet to move. Initially, Republicans had hoped to put a repeal bill on President Trump’s desk on his inauguration day. Then the timeline moved back to Presidents Day in February. As we head into March, the timeline threatens to slip again as a GOP plan to repeal and replace is coming under serious conservative criticism. The draft repeal plan leaked last week replaces parts of ObamaCare with a plan that centers on a refundable tax credit — a new program that conservatives fear could cost nearly as much

Is Colin Kaepernick being blackballed

It seemed a little early to condemn NFL teams for freezing out Colin Kaepernick. Barely a week had gone by in free agency. With one exception — albeit a grotesque, borderline-obscene one — not many quarterbacks had been coming off of the market. Bleacher Report’s Friday story on how front-office types still want nothing to do with him for his protests during the national anthem shined another light on it. (Snip) Come on. Stop it. Do not ever say Colin Kaepernick can´t get a job because he´s not good enough. Think of a better excuse. Think of a better lie.

On the same day that President Trumps´ favoribility rating sank to an all-time low, a new poll found that a majority of young Americans view his presidency as illegitimate. Fifty-seven percent of adults age 18 to 30 believe that President Trump is an ´illegitimate´ leader according to a GenForward poll conducted by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Among young adults of color, 74 percent of African Americans and 71 percent of Latinos/as view Trump´s presidency as ´illegitimate´, while a majority of whites (53 percent) view Trump as a ´legitimate´

Howard Schultz, the current CEO of Starbucks, will step down from his role at the giant coffee chain next month. The move comes after his vow to hire thousands refugees in response to President Donald Trump´s first travel ban appeared to hurt customer sentiment and dent their sales. Trump supporters have called for a boycott of the chain since January 29, when Schultz vowed to hire 10,000 refugees over five years. Schultz in a letter to employees said the promise of the American Dream was ´being called into question´ and that ´the civility and human rights we have all taken

The Secret Service will permanently remove a top special agent from her position after an investigation into her Facebook comments that she would rather not defend President Trump or take "a bullet" from him, but some agents are concerned she will simply be transferred to another government job. About two weeks ago, the Secret Service placed the agent´s prior post — the special agent in charge of the Denver District, the top job in that office — on a list of agency openings, according to two Secret Service sources. Kerry O´Grady, the agent in question, is on administrative leave

Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber (shown) wants to take us back to the Stone Age — literally. In a March 15 interview with the German newspaper Deutsche Welle, the German physicist declared that global warming is so serious that not only must we all give up the use of coal and our internal combustion vehicles in the next 13 years, but we must also ditch concrete and steel — for “wood, clay and stone.” If we don’t do this, along with other drastic measures, we are headed toward planetary warming of “4, 5, 6 or even 12 degrees,” he claims.

Less than 24 hours after meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to criticize Germany for not keeping up with its defense payments to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the United States. “Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel,” Trump wrote in a tweet March 18. “Nevertheless, Germany owes vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defense it provides to Germany!” Trump has repeatedly called on NATO member countries to contribute

Several Senate Democrats were unified in deriding originalism as a judicial philosophy during Monday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court justiceship Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), ranking Democrat of the committee, described originalism as a "very troubling” jurisprudential approach. The Framers, she added, intended for the Constitution to be continuously reinterpreted over time (emphasis added): “Judge Gorsuch has also stated that he believes judges should look to the original public meaning of the Constitution when they decide what a provision of the Constitution means. This is personal, but I find this originalist judicial

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — President Trump spent seven hours this weekend at Trump International Golf Club here, where a crisp breeze and cloudless skies beckoned golf lovers to the manicured 27-hole course.Did he play any golf?“Very little,” Mr. Trump told reporters traveling with him on Sunday on Air Force One back to Washington, recounting what he said had been a busy weekend of meetings to sell the health care bill and strategize about the nuclear threat from North Korea. The White House refused to provide any details.

BOULDER, Colo. — A new study by the University of Colorado Boulder spells out the suggestion that the first letter of your last name may determine your success in life. According to the study, which examines “alphabetism,” people with surnames beginning with a letter in the last half of the alphabet may face a tougher time academically, landing a first job and getting through life in general. The study, published last month, is not necessarily grounded in indisputable science. One of the lead researchers in the study said the results, however, were surprising. “Statistically, we were looking at two people

FBI Director James Comey, in an extraordinary House hearing meant to clear the air on a host of allegations relating to the 2016 campaign, confirmed publicly for the first time Monday that the bureau is probing Russian meddling in the race including possible “links” to the Trump team – while disputing the president’s claim that his predecessor wiretapped him. The FBI director was called to testify alongside National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers for a public session of the House intelligence committee. Comey’s testimony could serve to fuel tensions with the White House, which maintains there’s no evidence of Trump-Russia
