Takeaway from congressional hearing
on Russia-Trump links: GOP tries, and
fails, to make this a story about leaks

Los Angeles Times, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 3/20/2017 7:32:07 PM

Monday’s House intelligence committee hearing, billed as the first public inquiry into Russia’s election meddling, was a spectacle with an obvious lesson: Offense is easier than defense. House Republicans had a good time investigating the Obama administration. How successful those investigations were is a debate for historians. But the fact remains they had the whip in hand, while the Democrats were held hostage to the political necessity of defending the administration. The GOP still has the majority, but it must now protect the administration – run by a president who doesn’t always make that task simple.

Jonah has gone over to the dark side.

Takeaway is that democrats can not link Trump and the Russians to election misconduct.

Questions: Was there ever a FISA request that contains the letters T-R-U-M-P A in any order?

If so, how many and who requested the ruling?

Was there ever a FISA warrant granted with those same letters?

What are these "transcripts" quoted by various congess-critters and news fabulists?

The L-Dotters who take Jonah to task for writing in the LA Times should understand how syndication works. Jonah Goldberg´s column is distributed by Tribune Content Agency. Just as syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin doesn´t write specifically for the Podunk Weekly, Goldberg doesn´t write specifically for the Los Angeles Times.

Comey said most the reported news on the leaks was incorrect, does this mean NY Times & WP are fake news? Comey didn´t have any problem saying negatives on Trump, when ask did he talk to Obama about Flynn he refused to answer. They should have told Comey find the leakers or resign.

Ryan: Obamacare replacement bill
on track for passage this week
Washington Times, by Tom Howell Jr. and Dave Boyer    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 3/19/2017 9:24:32     Post Reply
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Sunday that he feels “very good” about his Obamacare replacement’s prospects for passage this week but that negotiators are reaching for ways to help older Americans whose costs would soar under the plan as written. Mr. Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, said President Trump is a terrific “closer” who persuaded a dozen conservatives to back the plan. The president will use his negating chops to reel in more Republican holdouts, he said. Yet finding a way to help Americans ages 50 to 64 remains a key sticking point for Republicans coming to grips with the potential fallout

Chuck Berry, one of the creators of rock and roll, has died, according to police. He was 90. St. Charles County, Missouri, police said they responded to a medical emergency on Buckner Road at approximately 12:40 p.m. Inside the home, first responders found an unresponsive man, but despite immediately administering lifesaving techniques, the 90-year-old man could not be revived. He was pronounced dead at 1:26 p.m., police said. The St. Charles County Police Department identified him as Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr., better known as Chuck Berry. The rock legend had announced in October, on his 90th birthday that he

Remember the date of March 13, 2017. It was the day President Trump was guaranteed his re-election and Republican congressional gains in 2018 and 2020. It´s not complicated. Follow along. The Congressional Budget Office released its study of Trump and Paul Ryan´s plan to repeal Obamacare and begin to reform our healthcare system. It had many numbers. Only two mattered: taxes and spending. CBO announced that the repeal bill reduces taxes by almost $900 billion and reduces federal spending by $1.2 trillion over the next decade. This reduces deficit spending by $300 billion over the next 10 years. Thus the

Two federal judges, one in Hawaii and one in Maryland, have enjoined execution of President Trump’s travel order. These court orders are obviously illegal and unconstitutional. Under the Constitution and federal law, the president has the power to suspend immigration from any and all countries if he deems it in the best interest of the United States. The idea that Trump’s travel order “discriminates” against foreign Muslims is ridiculous. The Supreme Court has made clear, in cases we have cited repeatedly, that no foreigner has a right to enter the U.S. Our immigration and travel policies are entirely our business.

House speaker Paul Ryan’s critics smell blood. The dismal response to the Obamacare replacement plan the House Republican leadership has put forward has entangled the speaker in a fight in which he is simultaneously being assailed by conservatives for betraying them while being demonized by liberals for being too conservative. But perhaps the most dangerous attack on Ryan is the one being orchestrated by Breitbart.com. The website’s publication this week of a tape of Ryan speaking to fellow House Republicans from last October in which he disavowed Donald Trump was the latest example of a concerted campaign against the speaker

Over the past decade, pollsters charted something remarkable: Americans—long known for their piety—were fleeing organized religion in increasing numbers. The vast majority still believed in God. But the share that rejected any religious affiliation was growing fast, rising from 6 percent in 1992 to 22 percent in 2014. Among Millennials, the figure was 35 percent. Some observers predicted that this new secularism would ease cultural conflict, as the country settled into a near-consensus on issues such as gay marriage. After Barack Obama took office, a Center for American Progress report declared that “demographic change,” led by secular, tolerant young people,

Derrick Watson, a Democratic Party activist who was appointed to the federal bench in Hawaii by President Obama in 2012, has issued a purported injunction barring implementation of President Trump’s travel order. I have not yet read Watson’s opinion, and will comment on it in detail when I have done so. But I have read Trump’s order, and the idea that it somehow can be blocked by a federal judge is ridiculous. The order is absolutely within the president’s constitutional discretion. What we are seeing here is a coup: a coup by the New Class; by the Democratic Party; by

It didn’t take long for MSNBC and Rachel Maddow to go from hero to goat last night. Now some want to move them from goat to … victim? After spending all day hyping an exclusive on Donald Trump’s 2005 tax returns but delivering a prime-time “total nothingburger,” as Chris Cillizza put it at the Washington Post, some are speculating that Trump set up Maddow by leaking the tax returns himself: The man who got the pages over the mail, DC Report’s David Cay Johnston, suggested the same thing after the White House popped the balloon shortly before the show went

Via the Daily Wire, that’s quite a claim. The president of the United States using a foreign intelligence agency to spy on the other party’s presidential candidate, for the obviously illicit purpose of erasing any domestic paper trail of his actions? “Scandal of the decade” material. And yet it falls not to the Fox News investigative team to break the story but to legal commentator Andrew Napolitano — and not on one of Fox’s marquee shows like O’Reilly or Tucker but on Fox & Friends and Martha MacCallum’s program.

Anyone who tells you that the Congressional Budget Office has found that 14 million Americans would lose their health insurance in 2018 under the House Republicans’ health-care bill has either misunderstood the organization’s report or is trying to spin you. The report actually concludes that most of the people who would leave the insurance rolls would do so voluntarily, because under the Republican bill they would no longer be fined for taking that step, as they are under Obamacare. Moreover, the projection cannot inspire confidence. The CBO has long believed that Obamacare’s individual mandate has a powerful effect on enrollment

An outrageous lead in the Washington Post captured the animus that underlies much of the coverage of Donald Trump: “A group of environmental activists pulled off a daring act of defiance.” And what was this “daring” act? They snuck into Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. and carved six-foot letters into the green (“NO MORE TIGERS. NO MORE WOODS.”) In other words, they broke the law and defaced private property. Someone realized the blunder, posted an editor’s note “to more accurately reflect” what happened, and the new lead said that “a group of environmental activists pulled off

Fox News has indefinitely removed contributor Andrew Napolitano from its programming, following an unsubstantiated claim he made on air last week and that was refuted by U.S. intelligence officials, according to a report. The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that Napolitano has not made any appearances on Fox since last Thursday. Citing an anonymous source, the paper said Napolitano "is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future." The Washington Examiner has asked a Fox spokesperson for confirmation of the report. Napolitano last week tried to bolster President Trump´s own previous and unfounded claim

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.

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.

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.
