In Georgia, Democrats Learn That
Opposing Trump Is Not Enough

National Journal, by Josh Kraushaar

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 4/20/2017 4:33:39 AM

Demo­crat­ic act­iv­ists spent the last month pour­ing their time, en­ergy, and pas­sion be­hind a 30-year-old film­maker, Jon Os­soff, who rep­res­en­ted the hopes and dreams of the anti-Trump Left. They turned the low-key former Hill staffer in­to a polit­ic­al celebrity, helped him raise re­cord sums of money for a House race, and even baited Pres­id­ent Trump in­to un­leash­ing a tweet­storm on the off-year con­gres­sion­al con­test. The re­turn on their in­vest­ment: a can­did­ate who turned in a sol­id, un­spec­tac­u­lar per­form­ance that places him in a run­off against former Geor­gia Sec­ret­ary of State Kar­en Han­del on June 20.

Another $8 million dollars worth of Hollywood money down the crapper. That´s a good thing - and Is it just me or does Pajama Boy Ossoff look like he´d tip over in a strong breeze?

Living in Georgia, I saw Ossof´s ads on TV every day. He tried to pose as a fiscal conservative, etc., etc. He is nothing of the kind. He is a hardcore leftist who was trying to hide that fact. The smirk on his face shows what an elitist he thinks he is.

Brutal: Poll Spells Big Trouble For Dems
With White Working Class Voters
Townhall, by Guy Benson    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/1/2017 5:17:28     Post Reply
First off, let´s not pretend that things are going swimmingly for the Trump administration and Republicans. The RealClearPolitics average of national polling shows the president´s approval rating slumping below 40 percent, including weak number from typically-Trump-friendly Rasmussen. The cartoonish dysfunction in the White House, compounded by the perception that Trump´s agenda has stalled, certainly aren´t helping matters either. Warning sirens are sounding all over the place for the GOP; there´s no getting around that. Then again, voters often think even less of the Democrats -- viewing them as leaderless, agenda-less, and too wedded to government "solutions." In their preliminary efforts

The White House shifts from
total crazy to … normal
New York Post, by John Podhoretz    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/1/2017 4:58:23     Post Reply
Just an hour after the shocking announcement that Anthony Scaramucci had been dumped as White House communications director, something amazing happened. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster jointly announced US sanctions on Nicolas Maduro, who’d staged a stolen election in Venezuela on Sunday that will effectively turn his country into a totalitarian state. Why was this amazing? Because it’s what’s supposed to happen in a White House: Senior officials, speaking with gravamen and serious intent, informed the country and the world of an action being taken by the most powerful country on earth to protest an immoral action

CNN host Fareed Zakaria explained how President Donald Trump rose to power on "New Day" Monday morning. "The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities, who have cosmopolitan views about things," Zakaria said. "There´s a part of America that is sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated population that Hillary Clinton perfectly represented. That´s why they´re sticking with him," he continued. Zakaria also blamed racism and diversity on Trump´s rise. "He knew that the election of a black president had stirred a kind of ugly

No, Scaramucci is not dead

Anthony Scaramucci might be out as White House communications director but he isn’t dead — despite the Harvard Law School directory listing him as deceased, according to a report. Scaramucci, the profanity-mouthed former Trump administration associate, was listed in the most recent directory with an asterisk next to his name — a designation meaning the 1989 graduate had been reported dead since the directory had last been published in 2011, the Washington Post reported. “Regrettably, there is an error in the Harvard Law School alumni directory in the listing for Anthony Scaramucci,” a spokeswoman said in a statement? to the newspaper?. “We

Mr. McCain Goes to Washington

In 2008, presidential candidate John McCain bravely proposed a health-care reform that Fortune magazine said was a giant step toward “laissez faire liberty” in health care. He wanted to empower consumers to find the best health care and even end the tax break for employer-sponsored plans. In 2015, McCain joined all but one other GOP senator in voting to repeal Obamacare. The next year he ran an ad in his primary campaign against a Tea Party Republican claiming he was “leading the fight to stop Obamacare.” That ad helped him win 51 percent of the primary vote.

Trump right to reverse Obama´s
transgender experiment on the military
Washington Examiner, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/31/2017 5:07:51     Post Reply
In 2016, President Barack Obama lifted the ban on openly transgendered people entering military service. His administration announced, further, that the Pentagon would pay for medical gender transitions. This was viewed as necessary lest transgendered servicemembers turned instead to suicide, or drug and alcohol abuse. President Trump reversed this decision last week. He made the announcement, as is his self-destructive wont, via Twitter, making it essentally impossible for him and his administation to explain their rationale. A limit of 140 characters, or a multiple of that in a series of tweets, is not remotely sufficient to lay out a case for

Will the human race end because of unchecked Venus-like global warming, or the rise of artificial intelligences that will find us disposable, or will aliens simply follow our radio broadcasts, come to Earth and eat us or subjugate us or merely cause us to lose our will to live because they are so much better than us? If you listen to Stephen Hawking, at least as he´s covered in the legacy media, the answer is "yes." Hawking is certainly the most famous theoretical physicist since Albert Einstein, and rightly so, as he´s been very creative, developed theoretical ideas that have turned out

“This is really a lesson in life,” a source close to the White House told me last Saturday, “Priebus made a mistake with Anthony because he kept his enemies on the outside, not the inside. Anthony wasn’t part of the problem they’ve been having, so Anthony can look like the solution.” At the time, Anthony Scaramucci, a political novice who gave up dreams of being a Hollywood star to make millions in finance, had just been hired as the White House communications director — news that surprised even the president’s closest advisers, including his chief strategist, Steve Bannon, and his chief

Jimmy Hoffa investigation: Frank Sheeran

It all started, and ended, on this day 42 years ago.It was a hot July afternoon, nearly 92 degrees, when Teamsters president and labor icon Jimmy Hoffa is said to have opened the rear door of a 1975 maroon Mercury in the parking lot of the Machus Red Fox restaurant, in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., and climbed in. He was never seen again. The FBI has expended countless resources in the ensuing decades in the hopes of finally solving this enduring American mystery with no success. But I believe, based on my 2004 investigation, that Frank Sheeran did it. "Suspects Outside

Jose Emanuel Garcia Sota and Jesus Ivan Quezada Piña were found guilty of murdering ICE Agent Jaime Zapata Thursday by a federal jury. Both men are Mexican nationals and part of Los Zetas drug cartel. They will be expedited to the United States to face charges. “I applaud today’s verdict and hope that it provides some measure of solace to the victims and their families,” Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan said. “Six years after these defendants ambushed and murdered Special Agent Jaime Zapata and seriously wounded Special Agent Victor Avila in Mexico, ICE remains committed to ensuring all those responsible for

How many scandals can you fit on the head of a pin -- or, in Maoist parlance, let a Hundred Scandals Bloom! And given the way they are blooming, Robert Mueller´s "Russia" investigation looks increasingly ludicrous. Even if Mueller were even-handed and the exact right person for the job -- an open question at the moment -- no single special counsel could handle all this. It´s a game of whack-a-mole to beat all games of whack-a-mole. Let´s enumerate the scandals as of this moment, several or all of which are or could be connected. The Original Trump-Russia Scan-dahl.

When last we checked in on the whole unmasking debacle, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was hot on the trail of… somebody. But we weren’t entirely sure who. People from the Obama administration had seemingly been requesting unmasking of any number of Americans who were detected during surveillance operations, but mysteriously they seemed to be focused on ones associated with the Trump campaign. (I’m sure that was just one of those weird, random coincidences that permeate the universe. Nothing to see here.) One name which was frequently mentioned was former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, but when Allahpundit examined

WASHINGTON — President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff. (Snip) The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge. It was not

“We cannot tolerate this any longer,” said the former CIA Director at the head of the table. “We have to forcibly retake the government from Donald Trump. It is the only way save our democracy.” His audience nodded solemnly. The men and women gathered at that secret February meeting on the top floor of 241 West 41st Street, the New York Times building, were Democrat politicians, media figures, retired and active members of the federal security bureaucracy, and several Establishment Republicans, and they were at wit’s end. There simply was no other choice. Donald Trump must be replaced, and it no

On the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Germany last month, President Trump’s advisers discussed how to respond to a new revelation that Trump’s oldest son had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign — a disclosure the advisers knew carried political and potentially legal peril. The strategy, the advisers agreed, should be for Donald Trump Jr. to release a statement to get ahead of the story. They wanted to be truthful, so their account couldn’t be repudiated later if the full details emerged. But within hours, at the president’s direction, the plan changed. Flying home

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has had a long run. At 77 — and a multi-millionaire — the California Democrat could ride off into the sunset. But the former Speaker of the House said Sunday she´s not going anywhere. “Self-promotion is a terrible thing, but somebody has to do it,” Pelosi said on Fox News Sunday. “I am a master legislator. I know the budget to the nth degree.” There have been rumblings that Democrats want to replace its aging leadership before the 2018 mid-term elections.

It’s been an utter disaster for Megyn Kelly since kicking things off at NBC. The New York Post reports Kelly’s Sunday show has been pulled two episodes sooner than scheduled due to poor ratings. Ouch. Breitbart News reports: Last week, Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly set another viewership low with just 2.71 million total viewers. In the last three weeks, her show has failed to beat the years-old Dateline rerun the network ran in her show’s time slot when Kelly took a week off during the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was convicted on Monday of defying a court order to stop rounding up immigrants, and he may face jail time — another rebuke for a once-popular politician who was voted out of office last year. In 24 years as sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., Mr. Arpaio built a national reputation for harsh conditions in his county jail, and for his campaign against undocumented immigrants; his deputies detained people solely based on a belief that they were in the country illegally, and then turn them over to immigration authorities for deportation. In December 2011, a federal district judge hearing a racial

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday that reports that President Donald Trump personally dictated his son’s misleading statement regarding a meeting last summer with a Russian attorney “bothers me a lot,” as do the president’s regular requests that the Senate do away with the legislative filibuster, a non-starter according to the South Carolina lawmaker. Still, Graham (R-S.C.) indicated that the possibility still existed for Trump’s presidency to “still be very consequential” if the president is able to refocus on healthcare and other legislative priorities. “It bothers me a lot because, one, he put his son in jeopardy,” Graham said on NBC’s “Today” show

President Donald Trump is being accused of knowingly and actively trying to spread false news about the murder of DNC employee Seth Rich in a new lawsuit. Rod Wheeler filed a complaint on Tuesday in the Southern District of New York against Fox News, Malia Zimmerman and Ed Butowsky claiming that they worked together to create a false narrative surrounding the death of Rich. Also contributing to the creation of that fake news story was President Trump according to court documents, which claim that the Commander-in-Chief wanted the story to include multiple fake quotes which were attributed to Wheeler.
