The Shift

Mark Leibovitch, chief national correspondent for the NYT Magazine recorded his impressions of Washington DC, the town that melted down. He paints a portrait of Sean Spicer trying to survive "in the shadow of a capricious force". He sketches John McCain, in a permanent funk "traveling the globe to the point of weariness, seemingly on a personal mission to reassure allies unnerved by Trump." He describes the institutional Republicans walking around looking "as if they were bracing for a chandelier to drop on their heads". Most compelling of all are cameos of the bit players: the staff members, lobbyists, newspeople,

Zuckerberg has once again proven that even a pea-brained geek can become a billionaire but that will not bring climate change any closer to reality.

Yes, "institutional Republicans" have every reason to worry. Their collective efforts to preserve the crime known as Obamacare is going to force every one of them to seek gainful employment elsewhere, at least the ones who are not too old and senile to do actual work. However, if their ultimate hope is to see Obamacare crash and burn completely before the GOP plan is implemented then I will make my apology.

FTA: Unfortunately there is no a priori way to distinguish between "creative destruction" and long-term decline. They look too much alike at the start. For all too many "disruptive innovation" will be indistinguishable, in the short run at least, from unemployment. (Snip) The GOP side is behaving like survivors shouting out a headcount after a collision to see who´s left alive. Among the Dems only Sanders is faintly stirring under the wreckage but ever more faintly.

It appears that Bernie´s wife is in legal trouble, which does him no good for a 2020 run when he´ll be approaching eighty. The Democrats have, as a party, gone over to the dark side--they are de facto socialists now--while the ideologically timid Republicans don´t want to appear too different from the opposition. President Trump is there to shake things up, to change what has long been regarded as settled. That´s a tough job, but somebody had to do it.

I became interested in Leibovich when I read The Town, an excellent exposé on the place we love to hate. However later material from him revealed that he was as hardcore a Democrat as any of the other media types.

Crafty Democrats blame “massive Federal Islamophobia” for Rep. Debbie (aka ‘Blabbermouth”) Wasserman Schultz’s top IT Guy Imran Awan, who spread like a plague among her Democrat colleagues in the House, being outed by the FBI. Try massive ‘Liarophobia’, Ms. Blabbermouth because that’s what millions of deplorables really deplore most; elected politicians who lie like the proverbial rug to the masses they are so handsomely paid to represent. Awan, under investigation by the FBI for bank fraud and cybersecurity abuses, was arrested at Dulles International Airport and relieved of his passport as he was trying to make his getaway to his

Poll: 3-in-4 White Democrats Find It

Three-in-four white Democrats and left-leaning Americans find it “frustrating” and “stressful” to talk politics with people who have a different opinion of President Trump, according to a Pew Research poll released Thursday. While more than half of Americans find it stressful talking to people they disagree with on Trump, white Democrats were the most likely to find it uncomfortable -- much more than Republicans of any race. The findings are from a June 27-July 9 survey, which polled a representative sample of more than 2,500 Americans on political behaviors following Trump’s election. Among all racial groups, white Democrats were also most likely

A 27-year-old Spanish woman best known for her blogging on hunting committed suicide recently. She was apparently unable to cope with the massive hate and harassment she received from so-called animal rights activists. (Snip) Disgusting. As Bearing Arms points out, hunters are conservationists. They aren´t mindless killers looking to slaughter every animal. They generally love the sporting aspect of hunting, and work to protect those species. They also serve to curb runaway populations of animals that create a negative impact on the environment and humanity. Of course, animal rights activists aren´t really interested in all animals. After all, they´re fine with a

A group of “children” (as activist lawyers call their clients) filed a federal lawsuit a while ago claiming that a right to a stable climate should be enforced by judicial decree as a postulate of the due process clause of the 14th Amendment, and the federal district court judge in Oregon (figures) denied a motion to dismiss. This lawsuit is so silly I didn’t bother to make note of it here. If the plaintiffs actually won this case, it would essentially mean the end of the Constitution. Are we really supposed to think that federal judges should supervise climate policy?

The Trump-Russia “collusion” farce gets everything bass-ackwards. As we’ve pointed out many times, collusion is not a crime; conspiracy is. To prove a conspiracy, you need more than mere association and collaborative action; you need an agreement to commit a specific statutory violation of penal law. Thus far, there is no indication that an actual crime has been committed. Under the regulations for special-counsel appointments, there is supposed to be cause to believe a crime has been committed before a prosecutor is appointed. Yet, we have a prosecutor assigned to the case even though there is, as yet, no crime. The Justice

Trump Should Pocket Minor Healthcare
Win and Move to Tax Reform Immediately

Now that the Trump administration has won a procedural victory on healthcare, they should pocket the small win and pivot to the vastly more important tax reform without delay. The subsequent failure of the larger repeal bill with the seemingly sensible Cruz amendment should be an indication it´s time to move on. But is tax reform really vastly more important than healthcare? Didn´t our grandmothers tell us that our health is the most important thing in life? Sure, but tax reform -- by jump-starting the economy -- will actually do much more for the health of the populace than any possible healthcare

Poltico reported in February that five House staffers were under criminal investigation amid allegations that they stole equipment from more than 20 member offices and accessed House IT systems without lawmakers’ knowledge. The five staffers all worked for Democratic congressmen and have links to Pakistan. The Daily Caller reported that one of the suspects has hightailed it to Pakistan. Something is happening here. One can only infer that some serious breach of security involving a spy ring seeking to misappropriate confidential and classified information is involved. The New York Post reported that the criminal investigation was shrouded in mystery. “In a recent

We usually don’t bother to deconstruct the craziest excesses of the modern Left, because life is too short–we might only live to be 100 or so–and we write for an intelligent audience. Still, sometimes it is worth noting how far over the edge American liberals have gone. Earlier today, I wrote about President Trump’s speech to the Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia last night. I didn’t mention that many Democrats have likened the Boy Scouts to the Hitler Youth of 1930s Germany, because I thought it was too stupid to deserve notice. But that meme has continued, and spread, among liberal

Former House IT staffer Imran Awan was arrested Monday night at Dulles International Airport where he was "trying to leave the country," Fox news reported Tuesday evening. Following his arrest for bank fraud, Awan was finally fired by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. (Snip) Imran and his Pakistani-born brothers, Abid and Jamal Awan, are currently under criminal investigation by U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission and stole equipment. There is also evidence of "financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan," according to The Daily

Here´s part of President Donald Trump´s speech in Poland: "The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?" After this speech, which was warmly received by Poles, the president encountered predictable criticism. Most of the criticism reflected gross ignorance and dishonesty. One example of that ignorance was

An unhinged bully doused Fox News host Katherine Timpf with water Monday night as she was preparing to speak at a campaign event for Ben Kissel, a libertarian podcaster, political commentator, and comedian who is running for Brooklyn Borough president. Some clown poured an entire bottle of water on her, and when she turned her head, he splashed water in her face. Then the coward turned tail and ran out of the place. Miss Timpf, who is extremely petite, was so flustered by the assault that she was unable to speak at the event. “This was a pre-planned thing,” Timpf told the

WASHINGTON – Rep. Filemon Vela (D-Texas) said today that the idea of finishing the U.S.-Mexico border wall is “obsolete” and that the U.S. government should tear down the existing fencing. “The important thing to remember is Mexico is an ally, not an enemy. Our two countries share tremendous economic, cultural and social ties. The idea that we would ever have thought about building a fence or a wall between these two countries is just very difficult to believe. To me, a wall is a fence and a fence is a wall,” Vela said during a press conference alongside other House Democrats

New research shows that ancient humans had sex with non human species. According to a study conducted by Omer Gokcumen, an assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of Buffalo, ancient humans had intercourse with a "ghost species" of "proto human". Gokcumen explains that humans are only one member of a broader species named "hominins". The research found that humans had sex with other members of the hominins group.

President Trump and his advisers are floating possible replacements for Attorney General Jeff Sessions — and the list includes Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), The Washington Post reports.Cruz and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) are reportedly among the candidates Trump’s team is considering to replace Sessions, though Giuliani said earlier in the day that he´s not being considered. Trump has repeatedly said that he is disappointed by Sessions’s decision to recuse himself from the probe into ties between the Trump administration and Russia, saying in an interview last week that he would have never hired Sessions if he knew

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do

Former House Speaker John Boehner said at an event in Las Vegas last week that he used to “sneak into” the White House to see President Barack Obama to avoid scrutiny from the “right-wing press,” according to a report by the Washington Post, which obtained a videotape of Boehner’s remarks. Boehner also lamented the fact that Americans now have too many choices of where to go for news and information. “What’s making everything even worse today is because we have so much news, people get to choose where they get their news,” Boehner said, according to the Post. “It used

BALTIMORE - African American activists have a message for Democrats: If you want to win back the White House, strongly consider a black person on the ticket. On their list are a growing roster of black politicians, notably Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J. and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former Attorney General Eric Holder and Deval Patrick, former governor of Massachusetts. Turnout among African Americans in the 2016 presidential election was the smallest in 20 years.

Monday on WISN’s “The Jay Weber Show,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) defended special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russian election interference by saying Mueller was “anything but” a “biased partisan.” A listener asked Ryan a question about why Republicans in Congress are not doing more to defend Trump against “what is becoming an obvious witch-hunt.” Ryan replied, “Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican, who was appointed by a Republican, who served in the Republican administration, and crossed over — I mean and stayed on until his term ended.” He continued, “I don’t think many people are saying Bob

Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor´s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do. In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he heard from friends about the elderly senator. A man living next to Sanders apparently called the Post to complain that he was hardly ever receiving his subscription. After an investigation into the matter, the paying customer realized that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose.

President Trump´s recent comments undermining Attorney General Jeff Sessions came off as unprofessional to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who may depart his post sooner than expected, according to a report. Trump went after Sessions, his first congressional endorser and a longtime advisor, for having recused himself from oversight of the FBI´s Russia probe, speaking during a New York Times interview last week. ´I think is very unfair to the president,´ Trump said. ´It´s extremely unfair, and that´s a mild word, to the president,´ Trump said in reference to the nation´s top law enforcement officer.

President Donald Trump brought his bombastic politics to a Boy Scouts event Monday in West Virginia, drawing cheers from the children gathered at the event and prompting comparisons between his rousing rhetoric and Nazi youth rallies from some liberal activists and journalists. (Snip) "The Boy Scouts must distance themselves from that offensive attempt to politicize scouting and turn them into a Trump youth organization," wrote Richard W. Painter, vice-chairman of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and the chief ethics lawyer in the White House under Bush, on Twitter Monday night.
