There’s No Shakeup That Can
Fix the Trump White House

National Review Online, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:danvillebill, 7/26/2017 8:02:38 PM

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

And so it goes.....

I have come to conclude that Jonah writes these articles to get attention. If I can restrain myself, I never will comment on another one if his anti Trump articles. Please join me and please ignore his articles.

What President Trump needs is a few more like General Mattis to kick ass, clean house, set the tone. THEN you can begin to work with what comes after that knowing there is zero tolerance for anything but the best.

If Sessions goes, others will follow. DT did a good job hiring competent, principled people who also have a high level of integrity. This could backfire when these people see someone of Sessions caliber be treated like an "outsider" in a high school clique, and then decide they don´t want to be associated with the guy. There are some in his cabinet who won´t put up with what Sessions is going through (Mattis, Kelly, McMaster). If DT loses Mattis, he´ll lose Kelly and then DT will have zero red with the military. Like some on these pages I have sources too... the way DT treats his people would bugger the mind of even his biggest sycophants. Folks, you haven´t heard "nuthin´ " yet. Any Game of Thrones fans out there?

Jonah´s writing was better when his dog and couch talking to him made up the better portion of his articles. Now every article could be entitled "Why I hate Donald Trump, Let me Count the Ways."

Best indicator of NRO´s current clientele is their comments section. So many regressive leftists. No clicks for them anymore.

Could one of you posters point out one thing that Jonah is inaccurate with? I can´t. #20 how do you reach the conclusion that if someone disagrees with Trump wants Hillary? Explain. I voted for Trump and will do it again in 2020. Do I think Trump is the best of the recent republican candidates. Yes and the only one who could have won. But he ain´t perfect and I would not want to work for him.

Let me cite some famous men of history who saved their nations and even their civilizations.

First-Trump is rather an eccentric, odd ball. He is not playing the game by their rules. He is short circuiting the elites and the media. He is moving fast and at tangent angles no one can understand, not even his supporters. But, he is constantly and consistently winning!

Then there is Ben Franklin- a dreadful womanizer, a lout, filthy of personal habits, a horrible father, he would be in the middle of a diplomatic engagement and suddenly pass a ferocious ´wind’ and never once interrupt what he was saying!

What about King George III (Yes, that K. George)/ Nuttier than squirrel poop. He lost the Colonies and inadvertently started America, but also, defeated Napoleon, reunited and reformed Europe and brought on a fantastic European renaissance the like of which has astounded many historians.

Abe Lincoln: Abe was so conflicted he had actually gone insane at one time (mental break down). Probably had a gay lover before he became Prez. Married a vicious screwball of a wife, was prone to fantastic bouts of depression and had a cabinet appointed most of which not only hated him, some were despised Democrats! Papers constantly referred to Abe as an "Ape".

I could go on and on (space limits). But, only a few times in history, in the last chance for a nation does "History" (Providence?) toss in a ´Savior´- a man or woman of Destiny who can make a real difference. Trump is our “Difference Maker”. He deserves allowance for his eccentricities.

Remember: Even Churchill used to hold midnight meetings with foreign dignitaries while wearing his pink “onesie” (with feet!) and so drunk he could barely stand up. He too was horribly vilified by the elites.

Like #24, I can´t find any factual errors in this article. I appreciate a sharp critique from the right.

On the other hand, Jonah has a blind spot. He has never recognized the ´beauty´ of Trump--his possibilities, his vision and spark of genius almost. His mind seems to be closed.

I would love for Trump to read Jonah´s article and take some of the points to heart; of course, he won´t, which is one of Jonah´s points. I would also love for Jonah to give Trump a break now and then and appreciate the up-side of someone coming at the country´s problems from a different tangent. But I do sympathize with Jonah. I see the same things he does and they are hard to un-see.

You would think the Trump fans would at least agree with Jonah when he said Trump isn´t going to change. I thought his real fans want him to keep on tweeting and stepping on his messages. After all, he´s a fighter and that´s the appeal, right? Others might be sick and tired of his behavior come election time.

I´m sorry #32 feels that way, if he was referring to me. But his allegations are crazy. I definitely don´t have time to ´time´ my posts. I definitely dive right in whenever I feel like it. Glad you think I committed a zinger though.

I don´t hate Trump. I cheer him a lot, actually. I did hate him during the primaries, with good reason. But I love so many of the things he´s doing--for example, his tweet yesterday telling would-be military trannies to forget it. Although I can´t dispute most of what Jonah says, I don´t share his attitude. I believe in seeing the positive of what Trump is doing, which is a LOT--and in giving him a chance. I hope that he retains his presidency and that it is super-successful.

I admit I don´t care for the Trump Phenomenon part--the idol Stepford-wife worship of him that has totally taken over this forum, wherein you are required to praise him no matter what, or else you get flamed--case in point.

So I have a have a love/aversion syndrome with him. He´s a complicated person and phenomenon and I see him in a sort of complicated way. Sorry to have offended you.

Think things will be rosy
for Democrats in 2018?
Not so fast.
Washington Post, by Dan Balz    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 8/13/2017 7:47:37     Post Reply
President Trump’s approval rating is at 38 percent. His base is said to be eroding. Average approval of the Republican-controlled Congress is at 16 percent. And the president is at war with his party’s leaders. For Democrats, what’s not to like? The answer isn’t as obvious as it might sound. Trump and the Republicans have concluded one of the least productive first six months of a new presidency. No signature piece of legislation has reached the president’s desk, and the notable failure to enact a health-care bill stands as an indictment against both the president and GOP congressional leaders.

Virginia City Rocked By White

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Hundreds of people chanted, threw punches, hurled water bottles and unleashed chemical sprays on each other Saturday after violence erupted at a white nationalist rally in Virginia. At least one person was arrested. Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency, and police dressed in riot gear ordered people at the rally in Charlottesville to disperse after chaotic clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters. Small bands of protesters who showed up to express their opposition to the rally were seen marching around the city peacefully by midafternoon, chanting and waving flags.

Manchin Emerges as Possible
Pick for Energy Department
Bloomberg, by Kevin Cirilli*    Original Article

Some White House and Republican officials are exploring the idea of putting West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin in charge of the Energy Department, according to four people familiar with the discussions, a move that could boost President Donald Trump’s stalled legislative agenda. If Manchin were offered and accepted the position, that would allow West Virginia’s Governor Jim Justice -- a newly minted Republican -- to appoint a GOP successor and bring the party a vote closer in the Senate to being able to repeal Obamacare. The idea is in the early stages of consideration, and it’s unclear whether it has

Late last month, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Dan Coats called North Korea’s nuclear weapons program a “potential existential threat to the United States.” Coats hedges a bit by throwing in the modifier “potentially,” but he has spoken this way before. Unless he has spectacular secret information, this is woefully inaccurate. North Korea is a growing threat to the United States with its nuclear missile program, and it is indeed an existential threat to South Korea and Japan. But the threat Pyongyang poses to the United States is not actually existential as, for example, Russian and Chinese nuclear arsenals

"Pundits should have fixed terms,” left-wing author Naomi Klein recently told the BBC. Awarded “jobs for life,” most professional commentators — whether opining in newspaper columns like this one or blathering on television — suffer no consequence for making predictions that turn out “spectacularly wrong.” Klein’s (partly tongue-in-cheek) solution? Hold our pundits to account by making them reapply for their sinecures every four years, banishing those whose prognostications prove most wide of the mark. The socialist Klein’s embrace of market forces, however selective, is welcome. Might I offer the unfolding horror in Venezuela as the first litmus test

These are dangerous days for Stephen Bannon, President Trump’s brain. A new book about the White House chief strategist portrays the president as the empty vessel into which Mr. Bannon poured his ideology and agenda, propelling the two of them into the White House. The book, “Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency,” by Joshua Green, a reporter who has known Mr. Bannon for years, is a best seller that gives Mr. Trump second billing. That’s made the empty vessel very angry.

When players get political, it turns out that fans can get political right back. After months of speculation and piles of anecdotal evidence, market-research company J. D. Power has weighed in with real data. After surveying 9,200 fans, researchers found that “national anthem protests were the top reason that NFL fans watched fewer games last season.” The protests were never popular. A September 2016 Reuters poll indicated that a super-majority of 72 percent of Americans believed the protests, led by Colin Kaepernick, were “unpatriotic,” but evidence that his protest had an impact on ratings was spotty, at best.

Donald Trump’s Assault

It’s heartening to see that President Trump’s weeklong, passive-aggressive assault on his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has crossed a line even for many of the president’s most stalwart supporters. Rush Limbaugh called Mr. Trump’s behavior “unseemly” on his radio show Monday. Of Mr. Sessions he said, “I hate to see him being treated this way.” Over in the Trump-friendly confines of Fox News, Tucker Carlson said the president’s humiliation of the attorney general was “a useless, self-destructive act,” and Mr. Carlson implored Mr. Trump: “For God’s sake, lay off Jeff Sessions. He’s your friend, one of the very few you

It costs as little as $10 and as much as $10,169 to get the same blood test in California. A lower-back M.R.I. priced at $199 at one Florida clinic goes for $6,221 in San Francisco. A shoulder X-ray can run anywhere between $21 and more than $700 across the United States. In Spain, a 30-day supply of Truvada, which helps prevent H.I.V.-AIDS, costs an average of $559, according to data compiled by the International Federation of Health Plans. In the United States it’s $1,301. In Britain, the average price of an angioplasty is $7,264 versus $31,620 in the United States.

Carrollton, Ga. — Jon Ossoff’s defeat in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District election on Tuesday wasn’t just a sign that Democrats may have a harder time winning in the Trump era than they had hoped. It is a symptom of a larger problem for the party — a generational and racial divide between a largely secular group of young, white party activists and an older electorate that is more religious and more socially conservative.

Even if the country were to descend into widespread unrest, it wouldn’t look like the unrest of 50 years ago. One month into 1968, the Vietnamese celebrated their new year and the Viet Cong launched its Tet Offensive. The chief of the South Vietnamese national police was photographed executing a captured Viet Cong officer, horrifying viewers across the world. Communist forces rapidly overran most of Hue, and hundreds of U.S. Marines were killed taking it back over the following month.

Fox News´s Kat Timpf slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "disgusting" press conference in which he again blamed "both sides" for the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, stepping back from his direct condemnation of white supremacist groups a day earlier. "It was one of the biggest messes I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe it happened," said Timpf, a co-host of “The Fox News Specialists.” “It is honestly crazy for me to have to comment on this right now because I’m still in the phase where I am wondering if it was actually real life —

A crowd of ignorant protesters pulled down a bronze Confederate statue that stood before a county government building in Durham, North Carolina — the angry national backlash to the Charlottesville brouhaha over the Robert E. Lee monument. This is not how civil societies operate. And yet this is what the left has brought, and now cheers. What’s next — burning books with offensive content? Burning books written by those who used to own slaves? At the very least, museums will have to go. The problem with revising history based on a standard of “feeling offensive” — as this anti-Confederate craze is rooted — is that someone,

President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace. Yet Saturday’s bloody clash in Charlottesville showed that many on

Former presidential candidate and current Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich may be moving closer to mounting a primary challenge against President Trump in the 2020 election. Sources close to Kasich told Willie Geist of the "Today Show" there is growing a sense of "moral imperative" to run against Trump for the Republican nomination in 2020 following his controversial statements on the deadly protest in Charlottesville, Va. (Tweet) Kasich has long been critical of Trump. On Tuesday, Kasich criticized Trump´s Charlottesville comments, saying "there is no moral equivalency to Nazi sympathizers" following Trump´s tumultuous press conference. Kasich, who lost to Trump

Mitt Romney fired back at President Trump for saying “both sides” were responsible for violence at a white supremacist rally over the weekend, claiming that the two clashing groups were more “morally different universes.” “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney tweeted Tuesday. (Tweet) Romney was responding to Trump’s comments Tuesday that “both sides” were to blame for the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday. Trump drew fire for saying Saturday that "many sides" were to blame for the violence at the

"POTUS is showing signs of erratic behavior and mental instability that place the country in grave danger," said Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., in a tweet Tuesday night. "Time to invoke the 25th Amendment." (Tweet) Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., also called on Republicans to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump. "As we once again hear Donald J.

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests. The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers"

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has weighed in on the weekend´s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, castigating Donald Trump without naming him. ´We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis,´ McConnell said in a statement. The choice of words, while careful, appeared to push back against Trump´s claim on Tuesday that some ´very fine people´ were among a crowd of white supremacists who rallied in the college town. McConnell´s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, stood next to Trump on Tuesday as he insisted both sides of the weekend´s clash bore some responsibility for

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina warned President Trump on Wednesday that his “words are dividing Americans, not healing them” in the wake of the bloody clashes in Virginia that has sparked a national conversation about white supremacists and race. Mr. Graham also vowed that Republicans will “fight back against the idea that the party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world.” “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va. At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one

As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes. McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”
