Trumping the Narrative
American Greatness, by Roger Kimball

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 6/13/2017 4:41:49 AM

The Narrative is partly like quicksand. If you fall into it, struggling will hasten your envelopment and death. Best to relax, take some deep breaths, and half float, half swim out of danger. I know there are some people whispering that advice into Donald Trump’s ear. Don’t struggle! Stay calm. And above all, do not tweet. There is something to that. The problem is, the Narrative is not only like quicksand. It is also like the hydra that Hercules encountered in his labors for Eurystheus: a multi-headed, self-regenerating, venomous beast.

It´s funny how people who don´t like Trump sending tweets only know about the tweets because they themselves tweet or have a twitter account. It´s okay for them to malign a person whose political beliefs they don´t like... malign them with tweeting... but it isn´t okay for the victim to tweet back!

I do agree with the idea of announcing every day the positives and keep doing it over and over like the opposite of the left repeating lies over and over.

The "Poor Illegal" Media Narrative
and Why It´s Not Working
Townhall, by Arthur Schaper    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/14/2017 5:13:41     Post Reply
When I was training to be a teacher, my mentors taught me to be tough at the outset. I learned that to be lenient, to go by compassion rather than consistency, hurts everyone. No one learns anything. The rule of law makes learning, producing, and succeeding possible. This lesson on learning and discipline illustrates the fundamental good that follows from our President enforcing our nation’s immigration laws. It is not compassionate to Americans or immigrants to allow illegal aliens to ignore our laws. The corruption rampant in Los Angeles County and throughout other major urban areas follows from the arbitrary

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch set aside ethical norms and good judgment to take her secret, election-year meeting with former Present Bill Clinton at an Arizona airport. Her agency was investigating Clinton´s wife, Hillary, and pondering the permutations of prosecuting her as she ran for president. In doing so, she paved the way for then-FBI Director James Comey to take unprecedented decision-making power in the investigation of Hillary Clinton´s emails. She also plunged her department and the White House into a panic when a local reporter got wind of the meeting. We finally know a bit more about it, thanks to a

Will Democrats Bet That Their

While left-wing activists were brawling with white supremacists in Charlottesville this weekend, another political battle was taking place in Atlanta. At Netroots Nation, an annual gathering of the nation’s progressive leaders, some Democratic lawmakers declared war against their own party’s centrists. Senator Elizabeth Warren, a likely Democratic candidate for president in 2020, proclaimed that Democrats would not be “going back to the days of welfare reform and the crime bill.” She sneered that Democrats used to tell party members to “give up, keep your heads down, be realistic, act like a grown-up, keep doing the same old same old.” But

Between alt-right and ‘antifa,’
media still manages to be worse
Washington Times, by Charles Hurt    Original Article

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA | Eight years after it was proved — even more convincingly than the moon landing — that a black man can get elected president of the United States of America, we still have slow learners stuck in the past. It’s the “Obliterate History Neanderthals” versus the “I’m White and I’m Proud Brass Knuckle Draggers.” Truly, dumb and dumber — and not always in that order. The only people dumber than the Neanderthals and Brass Knuckle Draggers are the insufferably tedious referees known as the Stupid Media who shape the country as a barking mad carnival, whipping up hysteria

Cuba’s assault on US diplomats proves
the foolishness of Obama’s outreach

‘Sometimes we allow ourselves to be trapped by a certain way of doing things,” President Barack Obama said back on July 1, 2015. But re-opening the US Embassy in Cuba would show “we don’t have to be imprisoned by the past.” Well, it’s now obvious that Cuba’s government has no desire to break with the past: Several American diplomats (and at least one Canadian) have come home from Havana after losing their hearing — victims of a sonic device placed in or near their Cuban residences. Raul Castro and his minions deny all responsibility, of course, and it’s not clear that

McMaster calls violence in

President Trump´s national security adviser said Sunday that the violence that broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend "meets the definition of terrorism." H.R. McMaster told ABC´s "This Week" that "anytime that you commit an attack against people to incite fear, it is terrorism." One person died Saturday when a car rammed into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville as tension boiled over at a white supremacist rally. McMaster called it "a criminal act against fellow Americans. A criminal act that may have been motivated — and we´ll see what´s turned up in this investigation — by this hatred

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., the former Democratic National Committee chairwoman known in political circles as DWS, is knee-deep in a scandal that involves a laptop, money and possible foreign entanglements. Unlike the Trump Russian scandal, however, The Washington Post and New York Times have barely reported on the story, which has conservatives observing -- with President Donald Trump´s Twitter account concurring -- that the mainstream media have a double standard. In February, the House sergeant-at-arms yanked House computer network access for five information technology staffers who worked as shared employees for some 30 House Democrats. Capitol Police

Let’s Not Forget How the

Liberals are criticizing President Trump for belligerent language directed toward North Korea. They think he should be more diplomatic, like other presidents have been for the last 25 years. Because that worked so well, apparently. This short video clip of President Clinton announcing the 1994 deal under which North Korea agreed not to develop nuclear weapons in return for a great deal of money is a great reminder of how we got where we are now. The deal was incredibly incompetent, if you think Clinton was actually trying to prevent the North Koreans from obtaining nukes, as opposed to sweeping the

Elizabeth Warren refuses to meet Trump nominee
she´s blocking for Justice antitrust division
Washington Examiner, by Ryan Lovelace    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/13/2017 4:46:13     Post Reply
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is blocking the confirmation of President Trump´s nominee to run the Justice Department´s antitrust division, offering no explanation and refusing an offer to meet with Makan Delrahim, according to a source with knowledge of the confirmation process. Warren reportedly put a "hold" on Delrahim´s nomination as the Senate confirmed dozens of nominees for key administration positions before lawmakers started their August recess. Warren´s obstruction came after Delrahim´s nomination sailed through the Senate Judiciary Committee by a 19-1 vote featuring broad support from some of the Democratic Party´s most liberal members. A source with knowledge of the process to

DC hasn’t come to grips

From warnings of “fire and fury” to declarations of “locked and loaded,” President Trump is dealing with the North Korean crisis his way. Naturally, heads are exploding all over Washington. You can’t change the way things are done, the chin-strokers and gatekeepers shout hysterically! You have to follow the road most traveled! Nearly seven months into Trump’s term, it’s not just the irredeemable haters who can’t accept the outcome of the election. Even otherwise-sensible people refuse to come to grips with the meaning of Trump’s victory. Voters wanted change, but Washington doesn’t. And that clash of wants defines the endless war over the

An Ohio man is accused of driving a car into a crowd of people protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring 19 others, police said late Saturday. James Alex Fields Jr., 20, was booked into the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail on one count of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of failing to stop at an accident that resulted in a death. On Saturday night, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the opening of a federal civil rights investigation into

White House chief of staff John Kelly spent this week in Bedminster, N.J., pondering changes in the West Wing, according to four White House officials. Kelly summoned aides to President Donald Trump’s golf club there to ask about their portfolios and make suggestions on how to make the West Wing communicate better and get more done, while giving people clear responsibilities and then holding them accountable. The role of chief strategist Steve Bannon has come under particular scrutiny in several conversations, particularly because he has a large staff, including an outside public relations expert, but no specific duties.

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — White House officials, under siege over President Trump’s reluctance to condemn white supremacists for the weekend’s bloody rallies in Charlottesville, Va., tried to clarify his comments on Sunday, as critics in both parties intensified demands that he adopt a stronger, more unifying message. A statement on Sunday — issued more than 36 hours after the protests began — condemned “white supremacists” for the violence that led to one death. It came in an email sent to reporters in the president’s traveling press pool, and was attributed to an unnamed representative. It was not attributed directly to Mr.

CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta unleashed a series of tweets throughout the day on Saturday blaming President Trump for the white supremacists rally and subsequently deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. “These are the consequences of sanitizing white supremacists who seek to be rebranded as part of American ‘right.’ They are peddling hatred,” Acosta complained in his first tweet. Acosta made no attempt to look at his own employer or the rest of the news media in the mirror for the amount of free publicity they’ve given neo-Nazis over the last few years, but that would require a level-headed kind

Marshawn Lynch, a runningback for the Oakland Raiders, sat and ate a banana during the national anthem on Saturday before the Raiders’ first preseason football game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona. Lynch did not play during the game, and the Raiders’ coach said Lynch’s actions were a “non-issue.” Although Lynch said he has been doing this for 11 years, photos and videos show he stood on many occasions for the national anthem in recent years. Lynch reportedly was not present in the locker room after the game, according to CBS Sports. However, the Raiders’ coach, Jack Del Rio, said

Saturday was marked by bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia after an apparent white nationalist plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters in a blatant attack. And on the morning after, NBC’s Sunday Today put President Trump in their sights as they unloaded on him while appearing to pin the blame for the attack on him. At one point even claiming he “enjoys” the support he gets from the bigots who were rallying in Virginia. “President Trump condemned the violence there on Saturday but he did not specifically speak to the white nationalism that was on display,” complained Anchor Willie Geist as he was

Bennett said he was motivated by the events in Charlottesville and wanted to speak out on racial injustice.

Dear John: You recently criticized the FBI for its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. I am a retired FBI agent and extremely proud of my career and service. I feel compelled to write. Former FBI Director James Comey’s statements, testimony and behavior are truly abhorrent. Comey admitted under oath before Congress that the bureau did not utilize a federal grand jury in the Hillary e-mail investigation. Furthermore, he testified that in his experience, when dealing with attorneys, you can obtain information easier and faster than via a federal grand jury. Never, I repeat never, in my 25-year career have I or any FBI agent

Dean said, “Well, actually, being an incurable optimist, I was hoping — I thought this might be his moment, and it wasn’t. I have concluded the guy is totally incapable of exerting any moral leadership whatsoever. I think you’ll see that in poll numbers quickly.
