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.

Tom Cotton Nails It On The AHCA
Powerline, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 3/22/2017 4:41:10     Post Reply
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."

The Return of Nevada’s Sharron Angle

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.

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.

Key Conservatives Come Around
on GOP Health Plan
Roll Call, by John T. Bennett and Lindsey McPherson    Original Article

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

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.

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

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

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.”

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."

Why is Sears dying?

Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why? Because the CEO, Eddie Lampert, is a guy with nutty ideas who treated Sears like a dotcom, conveniently forgetting that it has physical stores that need maintaining. (snip) It´s closing hundreds of stores. Others are in shambles, with leaking ceilings and broken escalators. In some, employees hang bedsheets to shield shoppers from sections that stand empty. Before Sears and Kmart, Lampert had no experience in retail. The big plan he hoped would transform Sears

A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a

House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We just pulled it,” President Trump told The Washington Post in a telephone interview. The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. It also casts

British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,

Democrats plan to filibuster Neil Gorsuch’s nomination for the Supreme Court, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) said Thursday. Speaking on the Senate floor Thursday morning, Schumer said Gorsuch -- who is three days into his confirmation hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee -- will need 60 votes to be confirmed. Currently, the Senate has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot support judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” he said. “His nomination will have a cloture vote. He will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation. My vote will

In the last three months of the Obama presidency, significant personal information from and about the Trump transition was collected and widely disseminated at intelligence agencies, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. Dozens of intelligence reports provided to Nunes by an unnamed whistleblower were floating around during the sensitive transition period following the election, he said. The information collection itself may have technically been legal, but the failure to properly mask the information “alarmed” the California congressman, who notified the White House of the surveillance and dissemination of information on Wednesday afternoon. Many of the reporters present didn’t seem to

Moyse is one of those youngish (in his 30s) lawyers who gets himself on lists of up-and-comers, like this one, and is a name partner in a criminal defense firm.In going on TV to make the case for his client, Counselor Moyse found himself being cross-examined and saying something he soon had

President Trump is facing the first crucial test of his presidency — repealing and replacing Obamacare — and he needs to apply the negotiating chops and deal-making skills he bragged about in his bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal,” to fixing our broken health-care system. And given his low approval ratings, he needs a win. Dealing with the Obamacare mess has been the core focus of the Republican party for the past 7 years — not to mention a major campaign promise that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. So it’s imperative that the president seal the deal and

Alphonse Maddin worked as a truck driver for TransAm Trucking. Like a lot of Americans, he did the kind of hard work that puts food on the table, and pays the bills and the taxes. The work that people like Maddin do every day may not receive lots of media attention, but our economy will not function without it. Such workers do not ask for a lot in return, just to be treated fairly and with dignity under our laws. Unfortunately, even that modest expectation has too often gone unfulfilled in recent years.

(Video)Maryland’s governor said Friday he cannot promise parents of children in Montgomery County schools, where a freshman high school student was allegedly raped by two older teenagers, that their children will be safe. Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s remarks came as the assault last Thursday by two immigrants, at least one of whom is in the U.S. illegally, has become a flashpoint for parents worried that the county’s “sanctuary” status for illegal immigrants exposes their school children to danger.“I’m not sure I can give assurances that their children will be safe,” he said.
