Old-school journalists ‘pi**ed’ about
Gayle King’s vacation with the Obamas

New York Post, by Carlos Green

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 4/21/2017 4:32:00 AM

Gayle King’s serious CBS colleagues had a lot to say about her recent yacht jaunt with former first couple Barack and Michelle Obama in Tahiti, and it wasn’t positive. “The ‘Capital J’ journalists are pi**ed and raving mad that she was on a yacht with the Obamas over the weekend. The old-school people were talking about it. She shouldn’t be doing that. She’s an anchor of a news program that covers the White House. You’re held to a different standard. It’s one thing to be friendly. It’s another thing to go vacationing on a yacht,” a source told us of the

Gayle King who? Please note how everyone is going to the Obamas out of the country. The Obamas are not returning to the U.S. anytime soon. He´s up to his neck in this Obamagate. Bottomline, he´s in hiding.

The onliest reason these clowns are pi**ed is that they weren´t also invited - particularly after all they had done for the messiah and his lovely and gracious consort.

#2 is exactly right! The msm is "pi**ed and raving mad" that they didn´t have their own yacht to report on obama who they believe to be the leader of the world! The msm has no standards when it comes to pimping leftist ideology so that "held to a different standard" is a red herring.

Someone should explain to CBS that they have zero credibility when it comes to covering the Obamas anyway so vacationing with them has no impact.

The Kennedys knew how to use the press. JFKs only occupation before he was elected was listed by him as ´journalist.´ (He was also the sinker of navy boats, but...)
He played the media as well as they could be played in his frequent press conferences. And his personal relationships with reporters kept them silent when he behaved like a horndog in the White House, with every woman he could bed. He deflowered a 19 year old White House intern in Jackie´sd bed. (Jackie was out of town at the time - might have been on Aristotle Onassis´s yacht, recovering from the loss of her baby in 1963.)

Trump’s Berating of Comey
for the Consumption of Our Enemies
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/20/2017 1:50:48     Post Reply
I admit to being slack-jawed over the New York Times report that President Trump smeared former FBI director James Comey in a conversation with representatives of Russia’s murderous, anti-American regime. The account, based on notes taken at the meeting and leaked to the Times, has implicitly been confirmed in a near-equally repugnant statement by the White House press secretary. Inexplicably, Trump chose to host Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and ambassador Sergey Kislyak the day after he fired Comey in a maze of conflicting explanations (when none, by the way, was required). Naturally, this further fueled the Trump-Russia conspiracy narrative.

   

 

  


 
President Donald Trump gets warm greeting from
Saudi Arabian king at start of first foreign trip
New York Daily News, by Dan Gunderman    Original Article

At around 3 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, President Donald Trump landed in Saudi Arabia on his first foreign trip—a five-stop progress through the Middle East, Italy and Belgium. The aircraft touched down at about 10 a.m. local time. Emerging from Air Force One, Trump and First Lady Melania descended the stairs to a wide red carpet. Saudi Arabian King Salman, 81, greeted Trump at the base of the stairs, extending his hand toward the U.S. president. Some pundits questioned whether Salman would shake Trump´s hand or even brave the sweltering heat to walk out onto the runway, citing his older age.

As Leaks Pile Up, It’s Evident Trump

It’s coming from inside the house. Throughout Trump’s presidency and increasingly in the past few weeks, leaks from staff members to the press are undermining the president. The New York Times reported Friday exact details of Trump’s meeting last week with Russian officials. The report cited a document read to them by an “American official,” which summarized the meeting. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said, according to the report. The president then added, “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” The White House did not dispute this account. Shortly

Mueller Must Investigate
Everything or It´s Worthless
PJ Media, by Roger L.Simon    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/20/2017 4:27:36     Post Reply
Robert Mueller´s investigation will be incomplete if he does not deal with and resolve the competing narratives about what has transpired. Narrative one is that Donald Trump and/or one or several of his entourage colluded in some manner with the Russians over election 2016. Narrative two is that Democrats and much of the media have not accepted the results of the election and are smearing Trump to drive him from office or seriously wound him to the degree that he will accomplish nothing. Although it is possible there is an element of truth in both narratives, it is more likely that

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein just did Donald Trump a favor. It may not look like that from the perspective of the president. His Twitter feed is filled with eruptions about the fraudulence of the Russia investigation. But by appointing the former FBI director Robert Mueller to investigate the matter, Rosenstein has quieted a crisis that was consuming Trump´s presidency. The storm has been gathering for more than a week. It started when Trump impetuously fired the FBI director, James Comey, claiming at first that he did so on the advice of Rosenstein. Then the president changed his story and

Now anything goes. All restraints are loosened, all self-discipline trashed. There’s no cure or even treatment for Trump Derangement Syndrome, a disease as wild and as swiftly lethal as anything imported from the Ebola River valley of the dark continent. The rules and taboos that once guided even the sleaziest excuse for a newspaper no longer apply. Destroying Donald Trump is all that matters in the newsrooms of the mainstream media, so called, and by any means necessary. Rarely have so many hysterics contributed so much of the national conversation. A columnist in The New York Times, ground zero in the epidemic

   

 



 
After Mueller, Trump Critics Worry:
Maybe There’s No Scandal
American Interest, by Jason Willick    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/19/2017 4:55:29     Post Reply
Eli Lake is right: The DOJ’s appointment of widely-respected former prosecutor Robert Mueller to lead the special inquiry into the Trump campaign’s potential collusion with Russia is a reprieve for a Trump Administration in crisis—a reprieve that it will almost certainly squander, but a reprieve nonetheless. How do we know? Because the responses from Trump’s most dogged critics on the Russia question betray a kind of anxiety about the Mueller appointment—an anxiety that the no-nonsense law enforcement wise man will lower the temperature in Washington without actually uncovering enough damaging material to bring down the President.

In 1998, Maxine Waters Called

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), along with her colleague Al Green (D-TX), is a leader of the impeach-Trump movement. But in 1998, Waters called impeachment a "coup d´etat." And she wasn´t just upset about because she thought Bill Clinton was not guilty, she was upset at the use of the institution of impeachment. She called it an "unapologetic disregard for the voice of the people" and an "abuse of power in the collecting of so-called ´evidence´ and the denial of the presumption of innocence." But isn´t this exactly what she´s proposing doing to President Trump?

The left’s ridiculous double

It may be too soon to tell whether Donald Trump’s presidency will survive his disclosure to the Russian foreign minister of a piece of US intelligence. But it’s not too soon to celebrate the sudden outbreak in our Democratic press of concern for our national secrets. This occurred over what The Washington Post and The New York Times suggest was President Trump’s inadvertent disclosure of highly classified intelligence from Israel in the Oval Office when Trump received Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. The disclosure, the Times quoted American officials as representing, “could expose the source of the information and the manner in

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

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

Participating in a left-wing discussion panel framed as a meeting for “social justice,” she was introduced as an “activist, thought leader, and change agent.” Using "climate change" as a euphemism for the narrative of anthropogenic global warming, Clinton framed the burning of fossil fuels as exacerbating other perceived social and political issues (emphasis added): “[We] carry multiple concerns in both our head and our heart. Just listening to the concerns around education and climate change, women’s health, child marriage, access to technology, all of those are of

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted President Trump´s budget on Tuesday, calling the overall proposal "dead on arrival." “President Trump’s $603 billion defense budget request is inadequate to the challenges we face, illegal under current law, and part of an overall budget proposal that is dead on arrival in Congress," McCain, a frequent critic of the president, said in a statement. The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled a budget that would shift $54 billion from nondefense to defense spending for fiscal year 2018. That´s roughly $19 billion more than former President Barack Obama´s last plan. McCain added that Trump´s budget proposal

But in the opening paragraph of a New York Times op-ed out Monday, Monica Lewinsky said that she did not plan to have her piece serve as another Ailes obituary. “It is, I hope, instead an obituary for the culture he purveyed — a culture that affected me profoundly and personally,” Lewinsky wrote.

The Post cites "committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach." These "security experts" are with CrowdStrike, a private cyber security firm hired and paid by the DNC. While reading the following chronology, it is important to bear in mind that the FBI has never examined the DNC computer network because the DNC prohibited the FBI from doing so. Also, that the FBI, under former Director Comey, not to mention President Obama and

Somebody, please explain to Jake Tapper about Arabs and the “strong horse.” Osama bin Laden explained it pretty economically years ago, but that’s a message that is difficult for liberals living in a fantasy world to grasp. After all, Barack Obama had a Muslim father, and he’s a “person of color” (one of the most annoying expressions in the English lexicon, casting Caucasians as colorless), so there must be some kumbayah, right? Jen Psaki, to whom Tapper asked his question, is in no position to explain, as she first tries to grab credit for the arms deal Trump just announced
