Donald Trump budget blueprint
targets the do-nothings

Boston Herald, by Howie Carr

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/19/2017 5:37:29 AM

You know President Trump’s proposed federal budget is on target when you hear the wailing of the tax-fattened hyenas whose snouts might soon be forcibly extracted from the trough. “Expected cries of alarm,” the failing New York Times reported Friday, “came from scientists, human rights advocates, teachers, diplomats, artists and workers.” Oh no, not workers! Or should I say “workers.” Because I doubt many of the so-called workers moaning about Trump’s proposed cuts have been working these last few decades at anything other than feathering their own nests. Among the many things this budget does is call the bluff of the bloated, entrenched

Every Republicrat in Congress has "hacks" in her district, and none will cut one job there. It´s the hacks elsewhere that must go... Or at least be consolidated in MY district. No one wants a headline linking their name with "Jobs slashed".

True story. Several years ago, I was a volunteer coach at my children´s Catholic school. A new policy for the diocese was that all coaches had to attend a seminar about coaching and how to deal with children. The attendees numbered maybe 50 or so and was pretty evenly divided, men and women. The two men running the program spent most of the evening b!tch...complaining about President Reagan and his budget cuts because they had lost funding for their ´studies´. To top it off, most of their ´studies´ only focused on boys in sports, not girls and then all the attendees had to pay $5 to attend. I´m pretty sure the guys in charge didn´t give that money back to the taxpayers.

I am well pleased to see that enormous Federal Employees “telecommute,” and what a joke that is. Many telecommute 2 days a week for a 3-day workweek. This is a scandal.

Meant to say that enormous numbers of Federal employees "telecommute". Given their gold-plated pension plans this is a terrible injustice to those of US that work. I personally know 2 Federal telecommuters.

I think President Trump will put them back to work. November 2016 was such a wonderful moment for our country that I can hardly get over it. Thank you God!

Trump’s big trip
Powerline, by Scott Johnson    Original Article

President Trump departs later this week on his first trip abroad since taking office. It is a trip with five stops including Riyadh, Jerusalem, Rome, Brussels and Sicily. The stops in Europe involve meetings with Pope Francis at the Vatican, with our NATO partners in Brussels and with the leaders of the G7 countries in Sicily. This afternoon the White House invited journalists to join a conference call with a Senior Administration Official (hereinafter SAO) speaking on background. He briefly previewed the trip and took questions. I just got off the call. SAO described the trip as ambitious and historic. He

It´s not earth-shattering news that Congress has been, on balance, the least respected branch of government for the last several decades. Reason: They don´t do their job. They bloviate, they posture, they investigate, they hold hearings, they appear on cable news, they raise funds from wealthy constituents and go on junkets, they threaten to turn out the lights if they don´t get their way, but only rarely do they pass laws for the betterment of our country. No wonder the people are fed up. But now Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has done them a huge favor and given them

Mueller returns and Republicans should rejoice

The Department of Justice has asked former FBI Director Robert Mueller to come out of retirement and run an independent investigation of Russia’s efforts in our 2016 election. Republicans should rejoice. Mueller is a consummate professional who has a great reputation on both sides of the aisle. But there are other reasons the GOP should be thankful. First, that the Deputy Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein, asked Mueller to come back suggests the Department of Justice and White House are paying attention to growing concerns. Second, it shows the Department of Justice is willing and able to act independently

We should have seen it coming. You don’t threaten to Drain the Swamp! without awakening some pretty surly bottom feeders. It is clear that the political establishment simply hates President Trump. That goes for Republicans almost as much as Democrats. From Day One various pols on the right have been quick to jump on the anti-Trump bandwagon. Cheerleader of the group: John McCain, who was nastily demeaned by candidate Trump and who has since leapt to the opposite side in every single controversy, getting his own back. Other defectors include Marco Rubio, Lindsay Graham, Rand Paul, John Kasich… wait – notice

   

 

  


 
Comey´s revenge is a gun without powder
Fox News, by Gregg Jarrett    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/17/2017 4:44:37     Post Reply
James Comey was lying in wait. His gun was cocked, he took aim and fired. But his weapon was empty. Three months ago, the then-FBI Director met with President Trump. Following their private conversation, Comey did what he always does –he wrote a memorandum to himself memorializing the conversation. Good lawyers do that routinely. Now, only after Comey was fired, the memo magically surfaces in an inflammatory New York Times report which alleges that Mr. Trump asked Comey to end the Michael Flynn investigation. Those who don’t know the first thing about the law immediately began hurling words like “obstruction of justice”, “high crimes

The patheticos of the anti-Trump ruling class whip themselves up into a lather each week over some imagined act of presidential perfidy. This week’s centered on Trump’s alleged dissemination of classified information to the Russians. No sooner had that disgracefully distorted story appeared than the cranks of the ruling class resumed their paranoid prattle about “collusion” and the paucity of “adults in the White House.” Of course, they quickly ignored that one of the ruling class-approved “adults” around Trump, national security adviser H.R. McMaster, debunked the media’s bogus storyline. “What the president discussed with the foreign minister was wholly appropriate to

Trump´s dangerous blundering

Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/17/2017 4:32:13     Post Reply
The Trump presidency has been frustrating, amongst other reasons, because it has ratcheted up partisan tribalism that might have been thought to reach its peak years ago. If there is nothing he can do that won´t cause his opponents´ heads to explode, there is also seemingly nothing he can do that would suspend his supporters´ excuses and justifications. Both are dangerous because neither allows the president to be corrected or encourages him to correct himself when he errs. That´s not to say both sides are always equally wrong. This week, it is Trump´s most unswerving supporters who need a reality check. Both

Before Lois Lerner Targeted The Tea Party,

Six years before she became the central figure in the IRS’s illegal targeting of Tea Party tax-exemption applicants, Lois Lerner cleared the way for the Clinton Foundation’s transformation from building a presidential library to being a $2 billion global political influence peddling machine, according to documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. She helped accomplish this feat through a 2007 letter on two legal issues of such magnitude that it’s unlikely the Clinton nonprofit could have become what it is in 2017, 20 years after its creation. The first issue concerned an otherwise innocuous sounding merger of two nonprofits,

As President Trump finds himself enmeshed in yet another media firestorm, fingers are pointing at the communications staffers who represent him to the press and the public. How the White House deals with the fallout of a report that Trump shared sensitive intelligence with the Russians during an Oval Office meeting, a story that will dominate headlines for at least the next few days, will be the latest test for an administration growing accustomed to public relations nightmares. Trump has publicly floated replacing the daily press briefings with his own biweekly press conferences, augmented with more frequent written statements in response to

At 5:01 PM, right on time for the evening news stories, the Washington Post ran a story saying that President Trump revealed "highly classified information to the Russian Foreign Minister and Ambassador." (Also see Rick Moran´s story earlier today.)

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump is preparing to go public with information about how last year shaped his personal fortune, a White House official says. The plan was disclosed Monday as Vice President Mike Pence filed his own 2016 personal financial disclosure form with the Office of Government Ethics. Pence reported earning about $110,000 last year, entirely from his salary as governor of Indiana. Trump´s personal finances are far more complex, since he was at the helm of a global real estate, property management and branding business until taking office in January. The White House official who said Trump will "soon" submit

Is it legal for Trump to record Oval Office conversations? President Trump may be the only one who truly knows if he has “tapes” of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey – but if he does, it´s more of a congressional problem than a legal one. The president raised the possibility of secret tapes in a tweet Friday. Amid a slew of media leaks about Comey´s controversial firing, Trump warned that Comey “better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” Asked Friday if the tweet meant Trump indeed had

Cool, even-keeled, no-drama Barack Obama is one of the few people in the country who hasn’t publicly opined on the tweets and turmoil wrought by President Trump. And so a persistent question to those close to the former president is: What does Obama really think of the man now occupying the Oval Office? “He’s nothing but a bullsh–ter,” Obama told two friends early last November, describing an election night phone call with Trump, in which the businessman suddenly professed his “respect” and “admiration” for Obama—after years of hectoring.

The New York Times reported on Tuesday that President Trump allegedly asked former FBI Director James Comey to shut down the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. The source of the allegation is a memorandum, revealed by an anonymous source, allegedly prepared by Comey regarding a meeting in the Oval Office the day after Flynn was forced to resign for misleading the Vice-President. While the headline is sensational, The New York Times’s report is self-contradictory at times, conflicts with statements made on-the-record and under oath, overhypes the substance of the memorandum, and is irreconcilable with other information in the

That is one of many questions that must be examined in light of the Washington Post-led story on President Trump’s Oval Office conversation with the Russians.

Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice slammed President Trump and his administration on Tuesday for their handling of foreign policy and direction of American leadership around the world. “Since I left the White House, I’ve become deeply concerned that the U.S. is squandering one of our greatest strategic assets: America’s leadership of the world.” Ms. Rice explained at the liberal group Center for American Progress’ annual conference. “It seems that the current administration looks at the world and sees only threats: immigrants, refugees, Muslims, Mexicans and even trade.

Right now, the very best you can say about Donald Trump is that he stinks at this whole president thing — in large part because he keeps creating trouble for himself and entirely on his own. Yes, the media are against him. Yes, the Democrats want his scalp.

When will Republicans drop the partisan games and apologize to Hillary Clinton? “If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president,” Clinton declared at a forum in New York City earlier this month. Those words led Republicans to mock Clinton for refusing to accept responsibility for running a bad campaign that ended in defeat. But Clinton then got backing — of a kind — from the man who beat her, President Trump. The president fired FBI director James Comey last week, ostensibly for violating policy when, despite clearing Clinton of any crime, he still went on national television last summer
