Weiner Rising in White House:
Ally of Disgraced Ex-Congressman Hired

Breitbart Big Government, by Ian Mason

Posted By:PageTurner, 4/16/2017 8:23:43 PM

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump enlisted the services of Risa Heller, a New York City public relations figure known for her work with Democrats — including former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Gov. David Paterson (D-NY) — when they came to Washington to take up their official posts in the Trump White House, according to a report in Buzzfeed. The revelation came amid reports that a New York City set with a history of friendly ties to the Democratic party is gaining traction in President Donald Trump’s White House, much to the

So now Ivanka and hubby Jared Kushner enlist Risa Heller on the one hand and Jamie Gorelick (ethics advisor??) on the other hand... in the White house.

Can you say Mahattan liberalalism? With ´official posts´ within the White House? I guess the Left Wing (West Wing) of the White House... is still the Left Wing.

If true, it´s time to stop being a Trump fan. I voted for Trump - I didn´t vote for Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner. I don´t like nor trust New York City "Democrat Yorkies". Actually, I am tired of Ivanka´s whiney voice. She sounds so affected! Young lady - get real. Trump - those NYC "Democrat Yorkies DIDN´T VOTE for you. Mid-America did. Don´t forget it.

The truth is even Breibart has it´s agenda. It is currently pushing a negative Kushner narrative because Bannon has had a few missteps and Kushner seems to have the President´s ear. Personally, I am not going to go wobbly on Trump like some of you seem to be doing. I actually agree with everything this POTUS has done to date, and I see him as a remarkable man of his word. This Weiner story is a huge stretch, (pun intended) and I thought better of the Lucianne crowd than to have so many folks Chicken Little over this nothingburger. That is all.

I trusted the Uniparty Republicans for 20 years. I can give President Trump more than 3 months.

Our President, and is family by extension, is not an ideological “conservative” (whatever that means anymore), nor is he an ideological “liberal” (whatever that means anymore). His goal is to Make America Great Again and that cannot happen, as long half the nation is at war with the other half. It is possible to hire someone highly capable to do a specific job without the requirement you must sign on to all of their personal political beliefs. I doubt that Jared and Ivanka Kushner are as malleable and easily led as some posters appear to assume.

The “right” often criticizes the “left” for their ideological-purity litmus tests that leave qualified people out of consideration for jobs that have no bearing on one’s political persuasion. I find that assumption as distasteful among “conservatives” as among “liberals”.

The greatest lesson I’ve learned during the Time of Trump is to be patient, and that second-guessing according to the old Uniparty playbook is a loser’s bet. He defeated both the Bush and Clinton Family Cabals. Everything else is icing on the cake. To paraphrase Melanie Wilkes to Rhett Butler when he brought home the wounded Ashley, “President Trump, this is not the first time you have stood between me and disaster. I will not question any device of yours.”

The thing that is frustrating about all these palace intrigue stories is that its far too easy to feel like Trump actually could become the opposite of what we voted for. He does seem to flap in the breeze. His conservative bona fides are soft, at best. Lately he´s been giving us more and more reason to get nervous, regardless of what Breitbart.com´s agenda is. I believe he was sincere during the campaign, but that sincerity was not rooted in decades long conviction, but a seemingly new-found awakening. Perhaps the resistance he´s gotten from the establishment is having it effect.

We won´t know for a while, but its not unreasonable to be concerned at this point.

I am so happy that Sessions is AG -- he knows what needs to be done. Same with Mattis at Defense as well as a few other cabinet members who should do the right thing, unless somehow Trump stops them (which I doubt will happen).

This is a person who worked for some Democrats, including Weiner (who used to be a Dem rising star before he shot himself down)?

Here’s how this very successful young woman ended up with Weiner:

Now, as president of her own shop since 2011, she manages a roster of high-profile clients like Major League Soccer´s New York City FC, Airbnb, the Metropolitan Opera and SHoP Architects, among others. Revenue has doubled each year, and she recently added two full-time employees. Her stint as communications director for ex-Gov. David Paterson, who copped to infidelity and drug use soon after taking the reins from Eliot Spitzer, led to other "politicians-in-crisis" work. Most recently, she advised Anthony Weiner in the wake of his sexting scandal.

"I can manage big problems," Ms. Heller said. "A lot of people are not born with the temperament to say, ´You have a huge problem and here´s how we´re going to try to fix it.’ “

She’s not related to them, or married to them. She worked for them. And Buzzfeed made the “revelation” while trying to put together a story on Democrats’ taking over the White House.

Some of us see a pattern here. It involves the media, not any White House “takeover”.

That is what we are supposed to believe. If we do, the media and whomever they work for win. Having won the election fair and square, the Trump presidency will now be defeated by the media and those of us who give in to its stories and choose to be complicit in the defeat.

P. Trump is neither conservative or liberal, he is a pragmatist. He sees a problem, looks for the desired outcome, and selects the best course of action to achieve that outcome. For example the ice rink in NYC.
The problem with the media,(that includes the Washington corridor insiders in and out of govt), is that they are measuring PDT in political milimeters and miligrams and he is acting in miles and tons

It sure seems as though the angst around here is based on one of two things: 1) somebody (not Trump) is talking to somebody else I don´t like; therefore, I´m dumping Trump, and 2) this COULD lead to Trump going off the rails sometime soon; therefore, I´m dumping Trump.

One is what you hear among middle school students who haven´t grown up yet; the other is all speculation about a "could be" that will probably never happen.

In short, neither position is based on sound reasoning, reality, or maturity.

I´m one that will hold my opinions until I see what happens in the future. So far, President Trump has, IMHO, the things that we elected to do. And if any of his aids start giving him advice that is not what he wants, I´m sure that he will put them in their place.

I continue to support President Trump - with increasing trepidation. IMO there are three groups in the Trump camp:

1. Believers in the man, who will support him ´even if he stood in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shot somebody´. These deserve the pejorative ´Trumpbots´ and need to wake up. George Washington warned us about electing ´kings´.
2. Believers in the principles that Trump has expressed, and his promises to give them voice and put them into action. Steve Bannon (and Breitbart.com in general) is the most reliable trumpet of those principles. To suppress Bannon is to mute that trumpet. (I place myself among this group.)
3. Hangers-on who hope to "turn" President Trump to their advantage. These are among the Goldman-Sachs and NY Democrat crowd who have worked their way into the WH via Ivanka and Jared, and include Gary Cohn and Dina Powell. Heller is a member of this liberal secular Jewish ´tribe´. And yes, I´ll say it: Jews - like Middle Easterners in general - are very, very ´tribal´ - the Bible tells me so. It´s part of the culture of the region. Time to deal with this ´inconvenient truth´.

So far it has been somewhat of a mixed bag, with the main ´function´ (cabinet picks, pressing Congress, the Gorsuch confirmation, fiscal promises, the tweets, and demonstrating willingness to use military assets) remains positive, while the ´derivative of the function´ (increasing G-S influence and sidelining of Bannon) has turned decidedly negative.

President Trump must choose between G-S Wall Street and populist Main Street paths. He cannot serve both.

We continue to wait and see with fingers crossed at this point.

Choose us, Mr. President.

The left is really scraping bottom in its serial attacks on Dr. Sebastian Gorka. Gorka, if you have not seen him on Fox News or at other outlets, is President Trump´s counterterrorism advisor. He´s an effective spokesman for the administration and has an interesting role: He´s kind of the Sean Spicer for nerds and intelligent members of the public, not the person who issues sound bites and takes ´gotcha´ questions from a hostile press pool.

The green eyeshades economics crew at Investor´s Business Daily has taken a look at a new IBD/TIPP poll and found a pattern based on time patterns seen earlier. What did it find? President Trump could be in for some winning – so much winning that he might get tired of winning. The poll shows that while President Trump´s overall poll approval is now low at 37%, economic optimism as he cures the economy and growth returns is up. The superimposition of the charts on one another shows that when the economy goes up, the president´s polls do, too. There´s a fairly good

A new Gallup poll finds just 41 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the former presidential candidate, with 57 percent expressing an unfavorable view. It´s the same split that Gallup found in December 2016. Gallup said that historically, losing presidential candidates have gained popularity after the election. Meantime, "Outnumbered" pointed out that the DNC raised $4.3 million last month, far below the $10.8 million brought in by the RNC. It was the lowest May total for Democrats since 2003 and

The plan is “not a health care bill,” Obama declared in a 939-word message to his nearly 53 million followers on Facebook. “It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America.” The 44th president did not mention his successor, Donald Trump, but his scathing criticism and urgent tone — imploring his supporters to speak out against the “fundamental meanness at the core of this

Macron’s first public appearance at official EU level was “not very encouraging,” Orban told journalists on the sidelines of the EU leaders summit that started Thursday in Brussels.

The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago. So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time.

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

Eaarly last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race. But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives — defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee,

The televised White House news briefing, after emerging as a can’t-miss ritual of the early days of the Trump administration, has in recent weeks become shorter, less informative and less accessible, with some of the briefings declared off-limits to live broadcasting. The White House Correspondents’ Association is not pleased. “We believe strongly that Americans should be able to watch and listen to senior government officials face questions from an independent news media,” the group’s president, Jeff Mason of Reuters, wrote in a note to members on Friday. Mr. Mason met on Thursday with Sean Spicer, the White House press

Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton came out swinging in a tweet Friday, saying if Senate Republicans pass their current healthcare bill, they will become the “death party.” Clinton’s post referenced an article from the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan policy institute, which cited Harvard researchers as saying “the Senate bill could result in 18,000 to 28,000 deaths in 2026.” (Snip) The tweet from Clinton follows an earlier tweet urging her supporters to "speak out against" the bill.

So I’ve been wondering: Why on earth does a prosecutor, brought in to investigate a case in which there is no apparent crime, need a staff of 14 lawyers? Or, I should say, “14 lawyers and counting.” According to the press spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller—yeah, he’s got a press spokesman, too—there are “several more in the pipeline.” Concededly, none of Mueller’s recruits requires Senate confirmation, as do Justice Department officials—notwithstanding that the former may end up playing a far more consequential role in the fate of the Trump administration. But does it seem strange to anyone else that, by comparison,

While Democrats obsess over the Russia hacking fantasy and Robert Mueller as Trump´s Javert, President Trump, the Federalist Society, and Senator Chuck Grassley are on the way to making the federal judiciary great again. The Huffington Post noticed and is worried: Trump is unbelievably well-positioned to fill up federal courts with lifetime judges. He inherited a whopping 108 court vacancies when he became president – double the number of vacancies President Barack Obama inherited when he took office. The reason Trump gets to fill so many seats is partly because Obama was slow to fill court vacancies early in his tenure. But
