Let Bannon Be Bannon!
New York Times, by David Brooks

Original Article

Posted By:danvillebill, 3/17/2017 9:48:27 PM

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.

DVB beat me to the punch; I almost posted this article, which is actually pretty interesting.

Even though I´m not in the Ryan Derangement Club and Preibus is a fave of mine and I´ve pretty much accepted Bannon as Prince of Darkness--Brooks just about spins Bannon into a sunshiney daylight; something I had not considered. I´m almost missing the vanishing populism of a couple of months ago.

Bannon is a real hero, this ´Bannon is bad´ nonsense is woven out of lies, fraud and nothingness.

I suspect that David Brooks and many who follow his "writing" spent most of their junior and high school years locked in their lockers.

California Governor Declares
Historic Drought Over _ For Now
Associated Press, by Scott Smith    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 4/8/2017 2:09:51     Post Reply
FRESNO, Calif. -- Thirsty California lawns faded to brown from a lack of water in four extraordinarily dry years have revived to bright green in neighborhoods across the state. Dry riverbeds of sand and tumbleweeds that snake their way through farmers´ fields now charge with water swelling up their banks. Scenes like these and many others prompted California Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday to declare an end to the state´s drought emergency that had drained reservoirs and wells, devastated forests and farmland and forced millions of people to slash their water use.

The Coming Incompetence Crisis
New York Times, by David Brooks    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 4/7/2017 11:51:48     Post Reply
I just read that the Trump administration has filled only 22 of the 553 key positions that require Senate confirmation. This makes me worry that the administration will not have enough manpower to produce the same volume and standard of incompetence that we’ve come to expect so far. Granted, in its first few months the administration has produced an impressive amount of ineptitude with very few people. On his worst days Sean Spicer can produce more errors than 10 normal men on their best days.

Hard times have arrived at the Environmental Protection Agency. It’s not just the budget and staff cuts which have the long time staffers down in the dumps. It seems that they feel the new boss, Scott Pruitt, as well as his boss, aren’t exactly onboard with the old agenda which they’ve grown used to over eight years under Barack Obama. According to this report from the LA Times, this has some of them feeling so glum and hopeless that they are thinking of leaving their plush, virtually fire-proof jobs and heading out in search of greener pastures. The pressure is

The Media Gives Short
Schiff to Obamagate

The media’s biased coverage of Obamagate continues to shift. First, reporters feigned outrage that Trump would dare to say that the saintly Barack Obama had spied on him. Never mind that Trump’s assertion sparked off their own reporting — reports clearly based on criminal leaks from Obama aides spying on Trump. But now reporters are pursuing a new line of attack against Trump, which can be translated as: Yes, Obama spied on you — and good for him. Take a look at this headline from a column at Slate magazine hastily run after the revelation that top Obama aide Susan

The NFL’s failed effort to shake down Oakland and its success in Las Vegas illustrate the worst kind of crony capitalism. The people of Oakland went into mourning this week while those in Las Vegas celebrated the news that the National Football League’s Raiders were abandoning the East Bay and heading to Sin City. But while any sports fan understands the sadness felt in Oakland and the happiness in Las Vegas, the reaction from taxpayers in the two places should be quite different.

The Republican Identity Crisis
The Atlantic, by McKay Coppins    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 4/2/2017 1:37:31     Post Reply
These are confusing times to be a Republican. For the past several decades, members of the GOP have mapped the ideological range found within their party onto a fairly straightforward spectrum—one that runs from “moderate” to “conservative.” The formulation was simplistic, of course, but it provided a useful shorthand in assessing politicians, and in explaining one’s own political orientation. A small-government culture warrior in Arizona would be situated on the far-right end of the spectrum; a pro-choice Chamber of Commerce type in Massachusetts might place himself on the other end. And across the country, there were millions of people—from officeholders to ordinary

DEA Administrator on opioid crisis:

Drug Enforcement Administration administrator Chuck Rosenberg talked to CBS News Friday about his agency’s efforts to do something about America’s opioid crisis. More than 50,000 Americans died from opioid overdoses in 2015 alone. From CBS News: “I don’t think we’re ever going to arrest or enforce or prosecute our way out of most social ills,” Drug Enforcement Administration administrator Chuck Rosenberg said in an interview you’ll see only on “CBS This Morning.”… “I gotta tell you, it scares the hell out of me,” Rosenberg said, adding, “these things can be lethal, believe it or not, to the touch.”

Prelude to a Sellout

If you want to pinpoint the precise moment when Donald Trump started selling out conservatives, there is a good case to be made for November 20, 2016, at 8:05 a.m. That is the moment when Trump began his embarrassing if short-lived public campaign of sucking up to Chuck Schumer, and, by extension, to the Democratic/media consortium he represents. When Democrats made it official that Schumer would take over for Harry Reid — a miserable specimen who might well have vied for the title “most dishonest person in American politics” in a world that contains both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton

Where the Senate Stands on Gorsuch
Roll Call, by By Sean McMinn and Bridget Bowman    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 3/29/2017 9:22:31     Post Reply
Though the Senate is under Republican control, Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, still needs to find some support from Democrats to be confirmed. Under current Senate rules, members can force a 60-vote threshold to end debate on Supreme Court nominees. With only 52 Republicans in the chamber, eight Democrats would need to break ranks in order for the body to advance Gorsuch, who would replace Justice Antonin Scalia. Roll Call is keeping track of every senator’s position on the Supreme Court nominee, with special focus on the 13 Democrats who could vote in favor of

The mainstream media, and some officials who should know better, continue to allege North Korea does not yet have capability to deliver on its repeated threats to strike the U.S. with nuclear weapons. False reassurance is given to the American people that North Korea has not “demonstrated” that it can miniaturize a nuclear warhead small enough for missile delivery, or build a reentry vehicle for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of penetrating the atmosphere to blast a U.S. city. Yet any nation that has built nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, as North Korea has done, can easily overcome the relatively

   

 

  


 
Tom Cotton Nails It On The AHCA

Sen. Tom Cotton announced today that he will not vote for the American Health Care Act in its present form. He released the following statement: "Despite the proposed amendments, I still cannot support the House health-care bill, nor would it pass the Senate. The amendments improve the Medicaid reforms in the original bill, but do little to address the core problem of Obamacare: rising premiums and deductibles, which are making insurance unaffordable for too many Arkansans. The House should continue its work on this bill. It’s more important to finally get health-care reform right than to get it fast."

Almost a year to the day she announced her last bid for federal office, Nevada Republican Sharron Angle on Tuesday announced a primary challenge to GOP Rep. Mark Amodei in the 2nd District. The 2010 Senate nominee ran for Senate again last year, losing to former Rep. Joe Heck in the GOP primary, 65 to 23 percent. The tea party favorite previously ran for the 2nd District when it was held by now Sen. Dean Heller. “The reality is the President can lead, but he cannot do it alone," Angle said in making her announcement.

The Murdochs have decided Bill O’Reilly’s 21-year run at Fox News will come to an end. According to sources briefed on the discussions, network executives are preparing to announce O’Reilly’s departure before he returns from an Italian vacation on April 24. Now the big questions are how the exit will look and who will replace him. Wednesday morning, according to sources, executives are holding emergency meetings to discuss how they can sever the relationship with the country’s highest-rated cable-news host without causing collateral damage to the network. The board of Fox News’ parent company, 21st Century Fox, is scheduled to

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is out of his job, according to a statement from the cable channel’s corporate parent Wednesday. The host of the top-rated cable TV news show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” was let go amid allegations of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior, sources said. “After a thorough and careful review of allegations against him, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Mr. O’Reilly will not return to the Fox News Channel,” said a statement from 21st Century Fox Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch and his sons, Lachlan and James Murdoch. “This decision follows an extensive review done in

When Bill O’Reilly left for vacation on April 11, he stressed that the break was pre-planned to counter the notion that it had something to do with with the New York Times’ revelation that five women were paid $13 million to settle harassment claims against him. A week later, it looks increasingly unlikely that he’ll ever return to his show. New York’s Gabriel Sherman reported on Tuesday afternoon that “the Murdochs are leaning toward announcing that O’Reilly will not return to the air,” according to three sources. Later that evening multiple outlets said support for O’Reilly is eroding within Fox News.

Would you attempt to bring someone happiness in their final moments in life, knowing full well that what you just told them was a lie? Well, one Oregon woman thought this was a good idea and, because of it, her ex-husband died with a smile on his face. According to an obituary for 76-year-old Michael Garland Elliott who passed on April 6, that last thing he heard was a comment from his ex-wife and best friend, Teresa Elliot. (Photo/Tweet) Teresa called Michael from her home in Austin, Texas, and she told him the last thing he would ever hear: “Donald

An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s. Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on

A House Democrat has introduced legislation to enhance the Constitution’s presidential removal procedures in response to concerns about President Trump’s behavior. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) filed the bill during the House´s two-week April recess to empower former presidents and vice presidents of both parties, in coordination with the sitting vice president, to determine if a president is fit for office. “It is hard to imagine a better group to work with the vice president to examine whether the president is able to discharge the duties of the office.

Chelsea Clinton is advancing the conversation on menstruation and breastfeeding, two women’s issues that are still met with stigmatization around the world. The former first daughter says in a piece penned for Well and Good that although these topics are often perceived as uncomfortable to speak about, they are also “ones that have to be brought into the open and addressed.” “Unfortunately, breastfeeding and menstruation remain fraught with cultural stigma, both here in the US and around the globe,” she writes. “Far too many girls and boys alike are socialized to think these are shameful topics-only to be discussed with our

The Associated Press edited the words of a Muslim man who allegedly killed three white people in downtown Fresno Tuesday afternoon and shouted “Allahu Akbar!” The suspect, 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, holds fervent anti-Trump beliefs according to his social media profile, and he told police afterward that he hates white people. (RELATED: Muslim Shooter Kills Three Whites In Fresno) Rather than reporting the gunman’s literal words, however, the AP reported the gunman as saying “God is great.” On Twitter, the AP’s report gave no indication that the suspect’s words were said in Arabic.

The long-reported layoffs at ESPN will reportedly take place over the next month. That, according to sports media reporter Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated. What hadn’t been rumored or reported, until now, is that ESPN will look to actually buy out some talent currently under contract. That represents a sharp departure from past ESPN policy. The Bristol-based sports giant typically refrains from buyouts, because like many companies they don’t see the sense in paying someone to not work. The decision to depart from that way of doing business suggests that ESPN wants to have the layoffs and the massive talent shake-up

The knives are out in Hillary Clinton’s camp about who leaked embarrassing information to the authors of a bombshell new book about her “doomed presidential campaign.” There is a witch hunt underway among Clinton’s presidential campaign staffers after the release of the autopsy book, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” by journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes. We’re told the details in the book, which depicts the campaign as inept, “could only have come from someone in the inner circle.” Dennis Cheng, the finance director of Clinton’s presidential campaign, has been sending out messages to determine where the leaks come from.
